Review: Pipedreams ~ Bag Of Love

For my first review as a product reviewer for I chose the Pipedream “Bag of Love”, I specifically chose this product because I thought it looked fun, frisky and like something I might be able to offer for the beginners or those of you looking for a great addition to a romantic evening. Initially I debated about whether or not to do a video review for the Bag Of Love, but unfortunately there was less to like then I hoped causing me to choose not to make a video.

That said, while I’m personally split between a 70% like/30% dislike, I don’t think it’s deserving of an “unapproved product” listing either, so for now it will just remain an honest and fun written review. And rather then just reviewing the Bag Of Love as an entire kit, I’m also going to review the individual products so that you’ll understand why I was torn between a good vs bad review.

Pipedreams “Bag of Love” is a fun and flirty fire engine red, heart shaped Vinyl bag packed with an assortment of goodies…some good, some bad, but all designed to help create an evening of fun and romance. Included in the bag are; a Heart Warmer Massager (I LOVE these things!), Mini-Mite Massager with 4 interchangeable caps to vary stimulation (very similar to a Pocket Rocket) , Reusable Designer Bondage Tape (great for beginners!), Satin Love Mask (felt more like plastic), Heart-Shaped Jelly Love Ring, Toy Cleaner, Green Apple Body Heat Massage Lotion (quite yummy really), Basix Mini Jelly Butt Plug, Love Beads, & Lover’s Lotto Cards.

Lets begin with the actual Pipedreams Red Bag; I have to admit, while some might find it tacky or cheesy I think it’s kind of hilariously adorable with is shiny, fire engine red, heart design. It’s big enough to pack full of goodies and comes with a bedazzled red heart lock and key to keep nosey baggage handlers out! The zipper is sturdy and the bag itself is surprisingly well made.

The only downfall is the white “Pipedream” logo plastered on both sides, then again I don’t know too many people who would know what Pipedream is. All in all, I actually quite like the Pipedreams Red Bag, I just wish it didn’t have the company logo plastered on the side.

Next up is the Heart Warmer Massager a product I am actually a huge fan of!! I previously did a review on a similar product and this one reacts in the exact same way – click the small internal metal disc and watch as the fluid crystallizes and turns to a soft, mushy, warm and comforting gel like substance.

The heart is great not only for massage, but also fantastic for cramps, back aches or taking somewhere on a very cold day. As for the heat, it lasts for about a half an hour. To reuse the Heart Warmer Massager just boil it for 10 minutes and let it cool completely, then you can start snapping all over again. I’ve had mine for just over 2 years now and it STILL works!

If there is one thing I think every woman should have it’s a rocket style vibrator. They’re small, easy to use, only require one battery, great for clitoral stimulation, are powerful even for the size and if someone was to find one they might not know what it was. That said the Mini-Mite Massager is no exception; it works just as well as any other rocket style vibe and has the same features. One added bonus is the addition of 4 end caps that can be used for a stimulating massage or to enhance any foreplay you may be engaged in. The only thing I wouldn’t suggest is using them internally, they’re not really designed for that.

I’ll be honest on this next one, the Designer Bondage Tape is a product that I’m still a little on the fence about. While it is quite adorable with its rose, heart, plain barb wire or chain link design it’s not exactly the most “bonding” and for a bondage tape that’s a bit of a let down. The tape itself isn’t sticky, a definite bonus for those of us who have had other tapes stuck to our hair or other “unmentionable” areas. Trust me, that can be quite painful ~ think of ripping a band-aid off your coochie! ouch! ~ this product on the other hand doesn’t stick to skin, hair or anything else, only itself making for some of the most comfortable bondage play possible. That said, I had to wrap it around my ankles twice to get it to “stick”. Personally I wouldn’t suggest Designer Bondage Tape to those experienced with bondage play, instead I’d suggest it to those who are new to the idea and looking to experiment with a product that isn’t scary or dangerous.

As for the Satin Love Mask there isn’t very much I can say, especially considering the one I got wasn’t made of satin. Instead I got a flimsy plastic feeling one. If it had been the actual Satin Love Mask I’m sure I would have been thrilled. That said, since it was slightly see through it was great for foreplay and to help build anticipation (all you can see is shadows) but other then that, it’s a mask. Nuff said.

When it comes to the products in the kit that I don’t like the Heart-On Luv Ring is one of them. My first issue was that it was made of a smelly, sticky, jelly material. While it doesn’t say what it’s made of, it also doesn’t say what it’s not made of and judging by feel and smell I would only assume it isn’t phthalate free. As for the ease of use it’ just a simple ring, with quite a bit of stretch, so it’s not really that hard (no pun intended) to take on or off. It’s not a really bad product, but it’s not made of a quality material and that’s where it fails for me.

If your looking for a handy, small (only 1oz), easy to travel with and easy to use (without totally stinking) Toy Cleaner this one is great! While I know there are people who debate the need for toy cleaner, if your planning on traveling the soap in the hotels can be a bit too harsh for toys and that’s when a great toy cleaner would come in very handy. It’s not sticky or tacky and doesn’t leave an oily or smelly residue on your hands or on a toy, all definite bonuses! This one get’s my vote!

I have to admit, with its yummy candy apple taste and bright green color the Body Heat Massage Lotion might just be one of my fave things in the Bag of Love. It’s quite small at only 1oz (not as big as the one pictured) so traveling with it is quite easy. I also have to admit that the warming factor ~ warming up when you blow on or rub it, was also a nice touch. It’s not at all chemical in taste and doesn’t have the same harsh after burn that some massage lotions have, which for me was a nice change. The one thing to remember with this product is that it’s a massage lotion, not a lubricant, therefor it will get sticky a bit faster and isn’t suggested for any kind of vaginal use. All in all I think the Body Heat Green Apple Massage Lotion is a product I am very glad was included.

Just like the Heart-On, the Basix Mini Jelly Butt Plug is another product that for me was a let down. While it may say that it’s “phthalate free” it smells quite horrible, much like I would expect any other jelly toy that’s filled with phthtales would. Aside from that it’s made of a very porous rubber; I personally don’t think anything that’s porous should be put in such a bacteria filled area like an anus. Although it is flexible and thin I wouldn’t exactly say it was a “mini” either, something like Tantus’ Little Flirt is much more deserving of that name.  While I can appreciate what Pipedreams is trying to do in creating affordable toys, I think they would be much better off focusing on higher end items made of body & environmentally friendly ingredients.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find a picture of the Love Beads by Pipedreams so I’m going to do my best to describe them and let you in on why I don’t think too highly of them ~ The Love Beads come with 5 hard acrylic beads strung along a thin black nylon cording tied to a hard (but flimsy) plastic hoop. Each bead is knotted in place, but with some light fiddling the knots came undone and the ball shifted ~ not something I was too keen on, especially if these are to be used anally. The last knot on the string actually came undone while I was playing with it sending the bead rolling across the floor (yay for new cat toys!), again something I don’t suggest for anal play as it could get lodged somewhere sending you to the emergency room. As for the nylon cording, it’s also something I don’t suggest for anal play as it absorbs bacteria quite easily. Lastly the plastic hoop (handle) is very flimsy and looks as if it would snap without much effort, not exactly the safest for vaginal or anal play. In my honest opinion I don’t think Pipedreams Love Beads is one of the safest products ever made, that said I’d just leave it in the packaging or give it to my cats to play with.

Last but not least we have the Lovers Lotto a fun, easy to use, cute and playful “scratch and win” game. The Bag Of Lovecame with 3 of these fun little things and I have to say they really are a great addition to a night of romance or play. On each card are the scratch options of what, where and when, with wins like “lick below the waist, in the bathtub at the stroke of midnight” as the prize. This is something that I think a beginner or advanced adult novelty enthusiast would find fun and could definitely use whether in the heat of the moment or as a fun little thing to tuck in a wallet or pocket. After a handful of not so great products I must admit, it was nice to have something like the Lover’s Lotto to round off the Bag of Love.

Final Verdict

Unfortunately when you’re looking at a product that comes as a “package deal” (meaning you save money) like the Bag Of Love you need to be able to look at it both individually (the specific items) and as a whole. That said, while there were enough products to make me a fan of the Bag Of Love, there were also enough to make me think Pipedream could have made some better choices when it came to products that should be included or left out.

Value for your money? As a complete bag you can expect to pay around $46.00. However, if you were to purchase each item separately, leaving out the Heart-Shaped Jelly Love Ring, Basix Mini Jelly Butt Plug and Love Beads, you’d pay roughly $48.50 ~ with the bigger bottle of Body Heat Massage Lotion and 9 extra Lover’s Lotto Game Cards too! ~ Personally I’d pay the extra $2.00 and shop separately then get the Bag Of Love as a complete product. You can after all pack the bag yourself…for me putting something together is always part of the fun anyways. You can buy the Bag Of Love from, where you’ll find a large selection of Vibrators and other great Sex Toys.

PVC Softee Beads

Over a year ago I began posting videos on some of my least liked products, unfortunately the site I was using to provide the videos on (YouTube) didn’t like my “belittling” products so they flagged them and removed them from the site. So much for caring about their users safety, heath and well being!

Fortunately another site came along (Girls Teach Guys) that allowed me to upload content without much restrictions and instead fully supported what I was trying to create as an “educator” and content provider.

Thanks to the website I still have a copy of the initial “Unapproved” videos to post for you so that you may learn and understand why I am in such support of well made toys that have your safety, health and the environment in mind.

California Exotics Softee Beads

From the moment I took the California Softee Beads out of the package I was not a very big fan. Not only do they smell horrible (a sign that phthalates and other harsh chemicals have been used) but they are flimsy, poorly made, sticky and leave a horrible stench on anything they come into contact with.

The first problem that I have with this product is the materials that were used to create it, PVC. If you haven’t read my previous article on Jelly or PVC products and the dangers they can create for your body I suggest you do. You will more then understand my immediate dislike for the product!

Secondly, the string at the base of the product has been threaded through the looped handle (“for easy removal” and so that it can’t possibly travel up your anus) and glued in place ~ unfortunately this makes me very wary and afraid that the product could easily tear or come unglued leaving you with beads stuck somewhere less then ideal.

The third issue I have is the string used to link the beads. While it does have a bit of stretch, it is created from thin, smelly PVC that does not make up for the flexibility. Aside from that it is not knotted or glued to any of the beads which means that they can slip or slide up the cording possibly creating a dangerous situation if one was to get lodged inside you.

Fourth, the last bead on the cording is not tied or glued in any way ~ if it was to break or tear off it could again lead to a potentially dangerous situation landing you in the emergency room.

Finally, the product it self is very porous (being that it’s PVC) leading to the absorption of bacteria which can possibly infect (or reinfect) you or your partner without your knowledge. Aside from that it makes the product harder to clean (especially if you use a silicone lube) and sterilize.

The only good thing I have to say about the Softee Beads is that is has soft, squishy beads rather then hard acrylic ones making for a much easier insertion and removal. However that one feature is no where near enough to sell me or make me a fan of the product.

All in all I think California Exotics Softee Beads were a very poorly made product that should never have even made it to market. Sorry California Exotics, but you really let me down on this one.

That said, over the last 3 years (2007 was when the Softee Beads were created) California Exotics has really stepped up its game, creating safer toys like the Couture Collection Utopia, Butterfly Kiss, Calla Lily, Jesse’s Raging Bull, all made from silicone or chemical free TPR materials that don’t harbor the same ill effects of jelly toys. Aside from that they are easy to use, not at all scary or overwhelming and made with the safety of its users in mind.

Hopefully you all learned something from reading this…and will make better choices with your toys the next time you go shopping.

Review: Fun Factory G2 Patchy Paul

Thanks to the fantastic guys at I was sent Fun Factory’s G2 Patchy Paul an easy to use, brightly coloured, powerful, very quiet and definitely fun vibrator.

The G2 Patchy Paul is made of a very soft, supple and flexible medical grade silicone making him non-toxic, hypo allergenic, hygienic and wonderfully phthalate free.

As for the size, Patchy Paul is 6.25 inches long with his body tapering from 1.25 inches thick at the top to 1.75 inches thick at the bottom. That said, for those of you that think he may be too big remember, you only need to insert what you are personally comfortable with. Toy’s are meant to be fun, not hurt.

In my opinion, what makes Paul so special are 3 things;

1) As you can see, along his body are varying indentations which gradually increase stimulation during insertion.

2.)The top of the shaft is curved to not only offer great g-spot stimulation (or as you have a good grip and don’t let go, your prostate), but for those of you who like clitoral stimulation you can hold it comfortably and directly stimulate the clitoris.

3.)The ergonomically designed control with it’s comfortable angle, makes it much easier to adjust then a traditional dial controlled vibrator. Rather then having to reach down and around in an uncomfortable position you can just reach straight down and adjust it to your liking.

As for the vibration, like most traditional vibes there is only one dial with varying speeds. So if you are someone who likes the options of pulsing and throbbing this may not be the vibe for you. But if you prefer a steady powerful vibe that’s very quite this is definitely one you will like.

Operating Patchy Paul is actually very easy, you just simply turn the dial to the preferred speed and you’re good to go. In regard to the batteries it requires 2 AA that can be easily inserted.

As for cleaning because its made of medical grade silicone it’s not going to absorb any odours or bacteria so you can just wash it with mild soap and water, rinse it well, then let it air dry.

In regard to the negative aspects of the G2 Patchy Paul, the only thing I wasn’t too keen on was the type of design they used – a caterpillar – especially considering that I don’t personally know anyone who wants to have sex with a caterpillar ~ except the strung out one from Alice In Wonderland…but that’s on a bad day 😉

That said, for those of you that like to have a toy that is esthetically pleasing, Patchy Paul may not be for you. Fortunately Fun Factory makes wonderful, fun, brightly coloured and inventive toys (I have honestly loved them since I first saw them years ago)so I don’t think it will be too hard to find one that you would like.

Anybody who is looking to purchase the Fun Factory G2 Patchy Paul or to find the other products that Fun Factory makes may I suggest looking through either or my personal online Sex Ed 102 Store

Review: Calla Lily

For my second official review as a California Exotic Novelties Sexpert I am very happy to have received the Calla Lily; an easy to use, not at all intimidating and very powerful dual vibrator that I think both the beginner or more advanced user should love.

The Calla Lily is made of a very soft and supple TPR material making it non-toxic, hypo allergenic and phthalate free. While it does have an internal metal rotator it’s not at all hard and isn’t something that should hurt during insertion.

The insertable shaft of the Calla Lily is 5.5 inches in length with a gentle curve at the end. To make it even better there is a nubby bump (also referred to as an Orgasmic Pinpoint Arouser) with a small but powerful micro bullet right at the tip making it perfect for g-spot stimulation.

For those of you that need clitoral stimulation to achieve an orgasm (don’t worry its normal, about 70% of women need this type of stimulation) there is also a very flexible stimulator at the base of the shaft with an internal bullet that can be independently controlled, delivering amazing clitoral stimulation.

As for the vibrations, there are 8 speeds of both g-spot and clitoral stimulation with 3 functions (pulsating, escalating and throbbing) for each. In my opinion the only downfall with this toy is the buttons; due to the fact that the light doesn’t change and there is no digital display it can be hard to tell what setting you’re on. So long as you enjoy what it’s doing I guess that doesn’t really matter, now does it 😉

As for cleaning, because its made of TPR it is slightly more porous then silicone so I suggest you wash it very well with mild soap and water, rinse it well, then let it air dry.

One thing I do want to make note of is the use of the word -waterproof- while I don’t think it’s that big of a deal if it gets a little wet (either from bodily fluids, lubricant or cleaning) I don’t suggest submerging it fully, like while you’re in the bathtub, as water may get inside and ruin it.

All in all I think the Calla Lily is a pretty damn good toy; its easy to use, non toxic, has multi functions, isnt at all overwhelming and has enough stimulation for both a beginner or advanced toy user.

Anybody who is looking to purchase the Calla Lily may do so from my online store.
