Product Review – We-Vibe Wish

I wanted the We-Vibe Wish from the first time I saw it. I had read the mixed reviews, but still wanted to form my own opinion of it. That is why I jumped at the chance to review one for Betty’s Toy Box. I received this toy free in exchange for my honest review.

The Packaging

The Wish comes in a pretty box with a matching color watercolor background. As with all We-Vibe toys, the Wish comes with a satin carrying pouch, charging cord, and instruction guide booklet.

The Toy

The Wish is a beautiful toy. It fits nicely in my hand and against my vulva (or anywhere else you want to lay it against). It is the prettiest shade of sky blue, waterproof, soft and squishy, and it had so much potential. I will try to refrain from making too many puns about the name.

The Wish is great in theory, as it has two motors, creating a “PowerPulse” technology. Unfortunately, the two motors just were not my cup of tea. Personally, I am not a fan of patterned vibrations. I like steady vibrations, usually on the highest speed available. The two motors and the PowerPulse pattern they create feel like a pattern more than just a steady vibration. The best way I can describe how patterns make me feel is “distracting.” The Wish is very distracting, as one motor will kind of skip if too much pressure is applied against the toy. The Wish charges via magnet, and an hour and a half charge will give up to 2 two hours of play.

There are 10 premade settings for the Wish, but using the app will enable you to create your own patterns. The Wish can be turned on by holding down the only button on the toy. To change vibration patterns, press the button again until you find one that you like. To turn it off, hold the button for a few seconds again. When you turn it back on, the toy will start at the setting it was turned off at.

The App

You can download the “We-Connect” app on your android or iPhone to control the toy via BlueTooth. I had been having trouble with the app, as it has been a bit buggy, but it seemed better this time around. With the app, you can manually choose your patterns, make your own, and even connect via Wi-Fi to a partner that has the app. Your partner can then control the toy, making their own patterns or using the pre-made ones. There is also a video chat, voice chat, and text chat feature that feels cleaner than Skype.

Overall

Overall, this is a great toy if you like patterns. I personally do not like patterns in vibrators, so I am sad to say that it was not for me. I wish it was not so. The two motors make it sound like it has potential, but unfortunately they do not feel synced and become quite distracting. The Wish is fairly quiet, which is a big plus. I honestly do not want to give up on this toy just yet, and will definitely keep trying it. I will update this review if I can get it to work for me. It is a beautiful toy. Thank you Betty’s Toy Box for giving me the chance to try it. For now, I will give it 2 out of 5 stars.

 

Product Review – We-Vibe Bloom

I admit, I haven’t been good at remembering to do my kegels lately. When I do think about it, I do them. One reason I love kegel exercise toys is that they make me remember to do my kegels. I have only had one kegel toy from years ago, at least until the awesome people at Good Vibes sent me the We-Vibe Bloom free in exchange for my honest review.

The Packaging

Like all We-Vibe products, the Bloom comes with a satin drawstring pouch, USB charging cord, instruction booklet, a sample We-Vibe lube packet by Pjur, and the toy itself. The Bloom has three different weight attachments (10 g, 30 g, and 45 g), meant for gradual training of the kegel muscles.

The Product

The We-Vibe Bloom is waterproof and rechargeable. A full 90 minute charge can give up to 90 minutes of vibration. The Bloom features a low power light, meaning it will blink when it needs a charge, preventing (most) mid use deaths. The Bloom can connect via Blue Tooth to the We-Connect app. The Bloom is made of silicone, making it pthalate free. There is only one button, and it controls the power, speed, and settings. There are four speeds and 6 different vibration patterns. One of my favorite things about We-Vibe products is that if you turn the toy off at one setting, it turns back on on that same setting. I prefer this, as I tend to prefer only one setting on vibrators (steady and fast). It is easy to remove from inside with the help of the silicone retrieval cord. The weights are labeled as “1, 2, and 3,” making it easy to change weights.

The App

The app is great in theory, however lately I have been having connection issues. The connection problems have been happening with more than this toy though, so I think it needs a few bugs fixed. I found that I had to keep my phone next to the toy to keep the two connected, making it really hard for controlling via app. When functioning properly, the app can let you (or partner) control your toy. The app can change vibration modes, speeds, and pause/start vibration. Users of the app can create their own vibration settings. The app also features a text, voice, and video chat function to make communication with your partner easier.

Overall

Overall, I loved this toy, if not for the buggy app. While using, it was a great reminder to do my kegel exercises. Once fully inserted, I was able to go about my day while using the toy. I was disappointed by the fact that I was unable to fully test out the vibration features with the app. Every time I got the Bloom inside the app would disconnect from it. I used each weight for a week each. I will definitely continue using the We-Vibe Bloom, and hope that the app gets updated soon. Thank you so much Good Vibes for the chance to try this awesome toy.

Product Review – Noje W3 Mini Wand

I have a confession to make. I am not a huge fan of the original magic wand. It is just too buzzy and bulky for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love it on my sore muscles, but not so much for masturbation. It just always felt way too loud and so powerful it was buzzy rather than rumbly.. I hear the new rechargeable one is better, but I have yet to find out for myself. For the many reasons listed above, I was actually excited to try the Noje W3 Mini Wand by Blush Novelties. Peepshow Toys sent me this toy free in exchange for my honest review.

The Mini Wand truly is a mini wand. I was actually expecting it to be a bit bigger (then again, I didn’t look at the measurements when I saw it on the product page), but it actually was the perfect size. That said, the Mini Wand is only 5.25″ long and 1.25″ wide. It fits in the palm of my hand, and it surprised me again with how strong and rumbly the vibrations are. There are 5 steady speeds and 5 unique patterns. Patterns have never been my thing, as I prefer steady vibrations.

To turn on, hold the power button for 3 seconds. It will start on the lowest steady vibration. There is only one button, so keep pressing until you find the speed/setting you like. I personally don’t mind having only one button, as I tend to only like the highest steady vibration, but I know a lot of others might have an issue with it. Press the button again for 3 seconds to turn off the toy.

The Noje W3 Mini Wand is fully waterproof, quiet, powerful, and magnetic rechargeable. The body of the mini wand is made from plastic and the head has a removable silicone head. A full charge takes about an hour and a half, and that will give up to 1 hour of use, depending on what setting is being used. While charging, a white light will blink. Once charging is complete, the light will become steady.

Overall, I really enjoyed the Mini Wand. I found it very easy to hold while in use, however the head is a bit flexible. I found it most enjoyable to press the head against me to give added stimulation and pressure. Thank you Peepshow Toys for sending me this product! It will definitely see more use.

Product Review – We-Vibe Rave

I absolutely love G-Spot stimulation. That is why I was very excited to try the We-Vibe Rave from the awesome folks at Betty’s Toy Box. I received this toy free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. The Rave is a rechargeable vibrating G-Spot dildo that can be controlled via buttons on the toy and/or smartphone app called “We-Connect.” The app is neat because you can connect to a partner or control it yourself.

Packaging

The We-Vibe Rave comes with USB charging cord, satin drawstring pouch, instruction booklet, and a sample lube packet by Pjur. The Rave is unfortunately not waterproof, but it is Splash proof.

The App

Downloading the free “We-Connect” app will give both you and your partner control of the Rave. The app allows you to use the pre-programmed settings or make your own. There are also three different chat functions to allow you to communicate with your partner: text chat, video chat, and voice chat. The boyfriend and I had a blast playing with all the different app settings. The connection is pretty clear for all three chat settings. However I am not sure if it was a bug at the moment, or if it was something wrong with my Bluetooth connection, but I had to keep my phone right next to the Rave to stay in control during solo play. I preferred the app over the buttons on the toy to control because I found the toy hard to press to change settings. The downfall to the phone (at the time) was spotty Bluetooth connection and getting lube and other juices on my phone.

The Toy

The Rave is made with the always amazing We-Vibe vibrations. It gives off strong, deep, and rumbly vibes. It is quiet, and easily muffled by blankets and/or pillows. Unfortunately it did not hit my G-Spot the way I liked. It wasn’t uncomfortable, in fact the toy itself felt nice, but I just didn’t feel like my G-spot was stimulated. The Rave is 7.6″ long and its widest point is 1.22.” It is made from 100% silicone that is velvety smooth.

Overall

Overall, the Rave is a great toy. Unfortunately it just didn’t hit my G-Spot the way that it was designed. It is still a wonderful toy, and it will still be used for fun, especially if my relationship goes long distance (which is a huge possibility). My partner and I had a blast with the app and its many different features and settings, nonetheless. I would give it a 3 out of 5 stars. You can get your own at Betty’s Toy Box. Thank you Betty’s Toy Box!

Product Review – Club Vibe 3.Oh

I am always on a hunt for the perfect wireless vibrator and jumped at the chance to review the Club Vibe 3.Oh for Good Vibes. I received this item free in exchange for my honest review.

Packaging: The Club Vibe 3.Oh comes with a USB charging cord, a small black satin storage bag, a One-Size thong, and a rechargeable remote with a wireless vibrator. The satin bag has enough room to fit the vibrator, remote, and thong comfortably. Adding the charging cord will make for a very tight fit, but it will fit. The thong has a sewn in pouch that holds to vibrator.

The Toy: The Club Vibe is a wireless vibrator with 3 different ways to make vibrations. There are three different modes (Tease, Groove, and Club). Unlike some other wireless vibrators, there is a 20 minute window that the vibrator will stay on (waiting for the remote to tell it what to do). It takes about an hour and a half to charge the remote and toy (separately, as there is only one cord) and a full charge will last for about an hour of play.

To turn the toy on, start by pressing the single power button on the vibrator and holding for three seconds. It will give a small buzz and the power button will blink to indicate that it is on. Once on, press and hold the power button for 3 seconds on the remote. the vibrator will come to life. Press each again for 3 seconds to turn them off. The LED lights will shut off in both power buttons and the vibrator will give 3 short bursts of vibration to indicate being turned off.

The Modes

Tease – To activate Tease Mode, press the arrow button. The toy will vibrate as long as the button is being pressed. Hold the Tease button to keep a steady vibration. Let it go to make it come to a complete stop. You can see why this would be called tease mode.

Groove – The Groove Mode button is third button down, with the squiggles. There are 5 different vibration patterns, starting with a steady vibration. Press again to change vibration patterns.

Club – Lastly, the final button is the Club Mode, which is the button with the speaker Icon. Club Mode picks up on voice and other sounds (particularly music). I had a blast placing the remote next to my speakers while listening to music. There are three levels of sensitivity to club mode, and cycling through them will increase/decrease the sensitivity. There is an LED light in the power button that will brighten as the sensitivity level increases.

This toy was a lot of fun to try out. Although the vibrations are too weak for me to really be able to get off, it is definitely a fun new staple to date night. I love to hand the remote to the boyfriend and let him take control through out the date. It is fairly quiet, so it would be hard to notice unless it was going  while in a room filled with silence. Unfortunately, the thong was way too small for me, though it could certainly fit “most.”

Thank you Good Vibes for letting me try this toy!

Product Review – Quad Silicone Whip

The Quad Silicone Whip was one of those things that I saw and had to have. I had never heard of it until I saw it in a list of available toys to review. I had been curious about getting something for whipping and trying it out with the boyfriend, and also it had been a while since I got a new dildo. The Quad Silicone Whip is a two in one, with a dildo handled silicone whip. The perfect two in one. I received this toy free from Good Vibes in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.

The Whipping End

The whip is made with four silicone strands with small weights at each end. With  a light stroke there is not much to feel, which is good for a beginner like me. For the more experienced, a harder stroke is ideal. However, one thing that we did notice was that the weights at the end needed to make contact to really leave a sting. The handle is very comfortable to hold. I love the feel of the soft silicone and the ridges make nice grips.

The Dildo End

The dildo is made of velvety soft silicone. There is not a whole lot of squish to it (though there is some) and it is not very flexible. There is a hint of a flared base, but I would not recommend this toy as anal safe due to the fact that there is such a small degree of flare (a lot less than toys that have a very prominent flared base).

All Together

From end to end, the Quad Silicone is 18 inches long. The insertable handle is 5 1/2 inches long, with the widest insertable diameter being 1 5/8 inches. Overall I feel like this is the perfect 2 in 1 toy. Thank you Good Vibes for letting me try this!

 

Product Review – We-Vibe Touch

I long lusted after the We-Vibe Touch. It looked so pretty, I heard fantastic things about it, and the little spoon like shape on the end called to me. I was fortunate enough to receive it free in exchange for my honest review from Betty’s Toy Box.

Upon opening, I was enamored at the soft and velvety silicone of the Touch. I took it out of the box and noticed how squishy it was. I couldn’t wait to use it. I immediately got it on the charger to make sure it would be ready for use. The We-Vibe Touch comes with a satin storage bag, magnetic charging port, and a USB cord.I found that it takes about an hour and a half to fully charge and it has about 2 hours of life, depending on how high the speed is turned up.

To be completely honest, I was a little underwhelmed when I first started using the Touch. It felt really nice, but it just couldn’t get me there. I kept wishing it went up one more speed. The next day I woke up and wanted to try again. I liked it a little more, but I needed something a fraction stronger to get me over the edge. I was determined to make things happen with this toy. With some relaxation and concentration, I was able to have a very nice orgasm from this toy after my third try. Third time is the charm, right?.After that, it has become fairly easy to have an orgasm form this toy.

The Touch has 8 functions total. There are 4 steady vibration speeds and 4 patterns. Unfortunately there is only one button used for power on/off and changing speeds/patterns. If you pass your favorite you have to cycle through everything to get back to it. However, if you are like me and only use one speed or function, you will be happy to know that the Touch turns on at the same setting it was turned off at.

Compared to the We-Vibe Tango, the Touch wins when it comes to battery life. However, the Tango does have that one extra speed that can get me there just a tad bit faster. They take about the same amount of time to charge, but the magnetic connection is a bit more stable than the Tango.

Overall, I love the We-Vibe Touch. I do wish it was a fraction stronger, but that doesn’t stop it from getting the job done. It is quiet and rumbly, a must have for my vibrators. It is made from beautiful, soft silicone and is comfortable to hold and use. I would give this toy a strong 4/5 stars and will definitely adding it to my list of favorites as well as keeping it with my go to favorites. Thank you Betty’s Toy Box for this awesome toy!

 

Product Review – Vedo Bam Bullet

I have always loved Bullet style vibrators. They are small, easy to hold, usually fairly quiet, and tend to get that perfect pinpoint stimulation that I absolutely love and desire. We-Vibe Tango was one of my favorite bullet vibes, so when Betty’s Toy Box offered to let my try the Vedo Bam bullet because it was similar to Tango, I couldn’t resist. I received the Vedo Bam Bullet free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

The Vedo Bam Bullet is many things. It is rechargeable, waterproof, and powerful. I would definitely have to agree that it is similar to Tango. The Vedo Bam is covered in velvety smooth silicone. It operates with one button. Hold the button to turn on and off, and press  to cycle through the different speeds and patterns. I can see how that could get annoying to someone who doesn’t want to flip through every single cycle to get to the setting they like, especially if they accidentally pass the one they want and have to cycle through again.

Personally though, I tend to prefer the highest steady vibration setting, One of the many things I love about the Vedo Bam Bullet is that it remembers the setting you turned it off at. So, instead of having to cycle through low to high, patterned to steady vibrations, I have it exactly where I want it. Vedo Bam is rumbly, but a tad buzzier than the Tango. It is not too buzzy to fail at getting the job done though; It gets the job done very efficiently.

For the punch that the Vedo Bam packs, it is very reasonably priced. It is extremely quiet, and with ten different vibration modes, it is quite a deal. Click on over to Betty’s Toy Box and treat yourself to a Vedo Bam. Thank you Betty’s Toy Box for giving me a chance to review this awesome toy! It is definitely added to my go to favorites.

 

Product Review – Womanizer Deluxe

I had heard many different opinions on the Womanizer that got me very curious. I had no idea what to expect, but was eager to try it out when Good Vibes offered. I received this toy free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

First and foremost, the Womanizer Deluxe has become my favorite toy that I own to date. It feels like nothing I have ever felt before and my other “favorite toys” now sit to collect dust as the Womanizer has become my “go to” bedside toy. It is really hard to describe what this toy feels like, how it makes me feel, but I will do my best.

The Womanizer Deluxe is not your typical vibrator. In fact, it doesn’t vibrate at all (though it feels like it does, but better), instead using “pleasure air” technology. When the toy is placed over the clitoris, it creates a suction. Once the perfect suction is created, all the user has to do is lay back and let the Womanizer do all of the work. For me, it felt like the toy literally pulled the orgasms out of me. The longer that I rode out the orgasm, the stronger it got, until I finally had to pull it away from my body. They say that satisfaction is guaranteed with this toy, and I have to agree.

The Womanizer Deluxe is not waterproof, but the silicone heads are easily removed and replaced for cleaning. There is a power on/off button and a speed up/down button. To power on, hold the power button for a few seconds. To quickly lower intensity to the first level, press the power button once. Hold it for several seconds to power off. The womanizer Deluxe is fairly quiet, and it gets even quieter once you find that pinpoint suction. There are 8 levels of intensity, and for once I don’t immediately crank it up to full speed. The Womanizer Deluxe comes in a nice box, two different sized silicone suction tips, a USB charging cord, and a drawstring bag to put your goodies in.

The pros far outweigh the cons in this lovely toy. The only things that I would change about it are the lack of being waterproof and the handle. I would feel a lot more comfortable if this toy was waterproof, It is a little awkward to hold. The Womanizer Deluxe is wide and a little bulky, but then again I have short arms and chubby hands. By the time I am done having fun, my hand is a bit cramped from holding it. It is still definitely worth it in the end.

All in all, the Womanizer Deluxe has become my favorite bedside toy, and I would highly recommend it to anyone with a clitoris. It is a game changer, for sure. You can get your own Womanizer Deluxe at Good Vibes.

 

Review – Peggy

I have always been a fan of wireless vibrators, and some of my best stories on this blog involved them. One night while browsing Good Vibes I came across Peggy and I knew I had to have it. I quickly emailed Good vibes and asked if Peggy could be my next review item. A few weeks later I received Peggy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Peggy is a remote controlled wireless vibrator made by Toyfriend. The remote is powered by a watch battery and the vibrator itself is micro USB rechargeable. The charge lasts up to two hours, and less if you like your vibrators on high buzz. There are 5 different vibration patterns and (I counted) 15 speeds for the steady vibration mode. Peggy is also waterproof!

I had high hopes for Peggy. I had many fantasies of the fun I could have with Peggy; on a date with my boyfriend, at work if I was feeling really brave, or even out doing random errands. Unfortunately those fantasies were dashed when I learned how Peggy works.

To turn Peggy on, you have to press the button on the egg itself. A blue light will turn on where the button is once pressed. To get the vibrations going, you have to press the power on the remote within 10 seconds of pressing the first button. If not pressed within 10 seconds of each other, the blue light on the egg will shut off. If vibrations are turned off (via the remote), they must be turned back on within 10 seconds or else the egg”s button will have to be pressed again. That right there ended all “public play” hopes. If I wanted to wear Peggy in public, I would have to have vibrations going from the time I hid her in my panties. There would be no turning it off and turning it back on again randomly throughout the day.

The buttons on the remote were easy to press, but they had to be pressed in just the right way or they would not work with the vibrator. I found that I had to hold the button down for half a second to get the two to communicate. The remote is advertised to work up to 20 meters away from the egg, but I found that the closer the two were to each other, the better I was able to change speeds, modes, and even power.

The vibrations that come from Peggy were strong, but buzzy. They weren’t too loud, but they certainly weren’t quiet. Using the toy under blankets, however, will help to muffle the vibration sound.

One end of the egg comes equipped with a silicone pull cord, making vaginal insertion a definite possibility. Since there is no flared base, this toy is not anal safe. Charging is easy, as you just have to unscrew the egg part in the middle. inside is the charging port for the micro USB.

Overall, I felt like Peggy had a lot of potential, but having to press both buttons within 10 seconds of each other to make it function makes it a bit pointless. Then again, I always imagined wireless vibrators to be tucked inside panties and worn while out and about, particularly on a hot date to let your partner have a little fun with you. The vibrations were also too buzzy for my taste, though the loudness of the toy was not too bad compared to other toys. I loved that Peggy is waterproof and is made from body safe materials.

Thank you Good Vibes for letting me review this toy.
