Review: Lelo Ida

Lelo Ida & TaraAfter watching the promotional video for Ida & Tara, Lelo’s newest couples toy, the little sex toy hoarder living in my head desperately whispered… you need to have that.

I told it that I didn’t. That there were other things to covet. That I had my sights on another precious. That it had misled me before, and that because of past indiscretions I wasn’t sure I could trust it again. Yet each and every time I heard someone tweeting or talking about it, there was that familiar hushed voice growing ever more determined…  you need to have it.

You just, need to have it.

So, when the lovely Carlyle Jensen of Toronto based sex toy shop Good For Her asked if I’d like to review it, the little voice screamed YES! …and with my own curiosities peaked, I really couldn’t say no.

Packaging

As with every other LELO product I’ve reviewed, the packaging is professional, respectful and ’boutique’ in appearance. The box is sleek, glossy, modern, and classy, with no tacky photos or cheesy slogans to detract from the level of quality the company has come to be known for.

Once open you’ll find a matte cardboard box that cradles both the remote and vibe within a velvety tray. There’s also a small compartment hiding a set of batteries, charging cord, key to open and close the battery cover, registration card for warranty, and instruction book.

For the record I love Lelo’s packaging; it keeps everything in one neat little lint free place, cords, batteries, lube and all, so I never have to rummage through drawers trying to find all the parts and pieces. On that note, do yourself a favor and hold onto it. It’ll likely serve you well in the long run.

Personal Experience

Having previously reviewed the Tiani 2, another Lelo vibe with a disc like remote, I was familiar with how Ida worked… or at least I thought I was.

And so I laid, a piece of silicone stuffed lifeless inside me, arm flailing like a maniac having a carpal tunnel fit, cursing every dirty word I knew, hoping against all odds I’d remember and like one of Oprah’s signature Aha! moments, miraculously figure it out. As if that wasn’t awkward enough, I caught sight of my partner standing in the middle of room staring at me mid remote controlled flail, looking confused, horrified and amused. After the fact he said he was seriously considering calling 911. Suffice to say,  I’ll not make that mistake again. Instructions, people. Even when you think you know better, always read the instructions. And lock the door.

buttons, buttons, everywhere.

Good luck trying to find these in the dark, or when lubed hands are at the helm

Feeling like a total failure I decided it would be in my best interest to forgo the remote and try the vibe on its own. This posed its own set of problems… the power button is located on the side of the rounded base, which is fine, except that each time you want to switch settings (there’s 6 of them), the entire vibe must be removed. Sure, you could spend a good 10 minutes aimlessly running lubed fingers around the base, feverishly searching for tiny and impossible to find embossed ridges, only to continuously land on the charging port instead. But that would be foolish. Removing it would certainly be easier. And far more time effective. You’d think I’d have learned by now.

Thankfully there’s a silver lining to my lack of common sense… it was during this constant insertion and removal that I came to realize how Ida works best; because the base was too short to rest on the clitoris and offer direct stimulation, placing the edge of it on the clit while slowly rocking with a hand cupped over the the base, so the arm penetrates in a gentle gliding motion, I was able to bring myself to orgasm.

Assuming I was on to something, I tested this method 3 times over the next few days and was thankfully met with the same result; a slowly built release that left a pleasurable and steady wave of orgasmic contractions.  Was it a bit more involved than I hoped? Yup. Was it mind blowing or intense? No. But it was effective. That’s better than nothing, right?

Lelo Ida size comparison

a full fingers worth, plus a bit

For as determined as I am there were times when my wrist started to cramp and I had to stop, rather than giving up and grabbing my Hitachi, I laid there like a lazy little bitch and let Ida twirl away. The rhythmic pressure felt nice as it gently stroked my g-spot and the vibrations did their thing on my vulva, but there was something that lingered… something not quite right… something was missing… then BAM! it hit me, I couldn’t help but notice the arm was pretty wimpy size wise. Even for someone that isn’t a size queen, measuring 3 inches in circumference at its thickest, and 3.5′ inches insertable, it isn’t very impressive. Granted Ida is meant to be a couples toy, so the thinner the better, but in this case, I was left wanting. If I had to compare it to something, I’d say the thickness is pretty close to having a finger inside you. Maybe two, but that’s pushing it.

As for prostate use, my tester said he could feel it and it was comfortably good, but that the wide, thick, and firm base was hard to get used to between his ass cheeks and that finding a good angle while sitting was a bit trying (he’s used to flexible silicone, so that may be more him than the product).  I tried it this way myself… it’s an interesting sensation, a little weird at first, then fairly pleasurable. Though I’ll admit, I had the same issue with the base until I wedged it between my butt cheeks and clenched like my life depended on it. Not ideal, but it’ll do.

Partner Use

Unfortunately partner use is where things start to get really tricky, and by tricky I mean worse; once Ida is inserted it’s rather difficult to get a partner in, especially if they’re wearing a condom. In fact, if they’re wearing a condom don’t even bother, it’ll likely end badly – as per the one condom that went missing, and the other that pulled and eventually tore.  Yes, we found the lost one, but still. This is not okay.

On that note, I know that Ida was a product designed for couples, couples that presumably don’t use condoms anymore. But for those of us that do, it’s a righteous pain the ass, on top of being worrisome and disappointing. There should be a warning about this somewhere, yet there is not.  Lelo, please fix this.

Lack of a condom makes the experience arguably less frustrating, but it’s still awkward and requires effort, lots of lube, a lot of foreplay, and even more patience and perseverance.  Getting a rhythmic thrusting going wasn’t easy either, I had to hold Ida in place to keep it from slipping when he pulled out, discouraging to say the least. Of course this wasn’t the only let down; rather than providing ‘more pleasure for him‘, with each thrust (when we could finally manage it, they were few and far between), he was met with the firm base hitting his pelvis. Grinding was no better, the base dug into him awkwardly until he finally asked if we could stop.  Even though changing angles and positions provided different results, it’s safe to say Ida isn’t something he’d opt to use again given the choice.

As for the rotations, I could feel them, but it wasn’t what I expected… there was pressure internally, but it was muted, almost like an afterthought, and didn’t add that much to the experience. Externally I felt the vibrations, but I was concentrating so hard on keeping it in place and trying to feel the rotations that I didn’t pay them the attention they deserved.

a plethora of dildos

my allies in defeat

Certain it was just my partner or the way we have sex, I armed myself with a handful of dildos of varying sizes/materials and settled in to prove myself right. For the record, there is nothing like an angry sex hoarder wielding sex toys totally ready for a challenge.

Yet again, I was wrong.

Even when lubed the silicone on silicone gripped and pulled my skin or each other, making insertion and any thrusting a serious difficulty. I struggled with hard ABS plastic, wood, and glass on silicone that at first dragged, then slipped all over the place. Admittedly, a lack of lube would have solved this problem, but I can’t begin to think of the ordeal it would have been without it. Quite unexpectedly, the last set of materials also made the vibrations pitch take on a distracting buzzy tone every time they unintentionally touched the ABS plastic cover. It was an all around fail.

Now add to all of these experiences a remote, one that requires either constant movement, focus, the ability to multitask, or all of above, and you’ve got one hell of a situation going on. Maybe it’s just me, but sex shouldn’t require this much work, especially from a product that’s supposed to offer “intense satisfaction“. Their words, not mine. Don’t get me wrong, the wireless remote is fun to play with… it’s just a tad involved and seems more like a gimmick to inflate prices than anything else.

Care & Cleaning

Thankfully Ida doesn’t require a heavy duty cleaning after use, the silicone won’t absorb bodily fluids, lube or bacteria, allowing a quick wash with warm water and antibacterial soap. You’ll want to take a few extra seconds to make sure the indent around the gold cover is clean, same goes for the remote buttons. I’ve found fluids will collect around the seam, something you probably wont notice until after the fact.  Also, make sure to avoid getting any water or soap in the charging socket of the toy, and that it’s dry before you plug it in to recharge, that could obviously be dangerous.

Final Verdict

Personally I think Ida has a bit of an identity crisis to work out, which is crappy since I’ve had really great luck with Lelo toys so far;  Ella was one of the very first toys that consistently had me squirting (tmi? meh.), their dual stimulator Ina was one of my go to toys for over 3 years, and I’ve loved the first and second generation Gigi without fault. Maybe if it was thicker, and a tad longer, with a slightly higher resting base, it would make for an ideal solo toy, but as a couples vibe it comes up short. Not to mention being far too complicated.

My advice, if you want a vibrator that has the quality Lelo is known for, are in the market for something on the smaller side, that isn’t overwhelmingly powerful (i.e. NOT a Hitachi), head over to Good For Her and get yourself a Lelo Tara. Sans Ida. It’s basically the same thing without a remote, or the high price tag. If on the other hand you want something a little bit more substantial, I’d suggest snagging a Gigi 2, Ina 2, We-Vibe Touch… or if you’re dead set on a couples vibe, give the Tiani 2 a go. Or maybe the We-Vibe 4. I haven’t tried it yet, but it looks a lot more promising than what Lelo cooked up, even without the rotations.

Review: We-Vibe Thrill

We-Vible Solo for her ThrillReviewing sex toys isn’t always easy. Sometimes you get your hands on something you think will be a piece of crap and it turns out to the be the holy grail of sex toys (literally and figuratively speaking). Other times you get something you’ve lusted after for years, only to have it let you down at the push of a button. This wasn’t either of those times, if it was, this review would have been easier to write.

Don’t get me wrong, cramming stuff in your bits and sharing it with the world is certainly a fantastic exercise in humility and confidence, but there are side effects that come with it over the years.

In the case of the We-Vibe Thrill, I found myself oddly sitting on the fence; on the one hand it lived up to my expectations… on the other, I wasn’t really expecting much. Which is harsh for me to say, especially since almost every product they’ve made has left me thoroughly impressed (if my dog didn’t tear it to shit, the We-Vibe Touch would still be one of my ‘go-to’ vibes). Fortunately I don’t totally blame the product for my view… citing everything it’s been through, my vagina just isn’t easily “wowed” anymore, I guess with over 100 product reviews under my belt it was bound to happen sooner or later.

Packaging

I’ve never been disappointed with the packaging We-Vibe creates; it’s professional, classy, discreet in appearance, quality, and often luxurious. You’ll rarely find anything that’s potentially embarrassing or tacky, instead the choice wording is mature and thoughtful, with a large portion of their imagery being consistently straightforward, add to that the fact that the actual box(s) is fully reusable and you have yourself some quality stuff right there.

As for the Thrill; placed within the easily removed white cardboard sleeve sits a basic but sturdy red wine colored box, and with the exception of a simple “Thrill by We-Vibe”, there’s absolutely no information pertaining to the product. Instead, the key information is placed on the outer sleeve, including little diagrams and specifications in 7 different languages.  Once opened, the product is nestled within a white foam holder, with the pouch, instruction manual and charger found underneath. It’s clean, simple, well thought out and something more manufacturers should aspire to.

*For those that don’t have many storage options removing the inner foam is a great idea, as the box is large enough to hold everything plus some lube, condoms, and if small enough, a few other sex toys.

The Good

Sadly for me the ‘bad’ outweighed the good, but that isn’t to say it didn’t have some redeeming qualities…

  • The supple and squishy silicone makes it fairly easy to insert, while also allowing it to bend and flex with the body – great for those of you that like to move around/grind about when diddling.
  •  It’s hypoallergenic, hygienic, non-toxic, phthalate and latex free, as well as being non-porous (so it won’t absorb bodily fluid, lube or bacteria), giving it a longer life span than the cheap jelly crap you’ll often find.
  • It’s 100% Waterproof, not ‘splash proof’ like many other vibes, meaning you can fully submerge it in water.
  • It comfortably (and sometimes ergonomically) fits in the hand, sitting rather perfectly so it’s easily turned on and off with the press of a thumb.
  • Although it may not be strong enough for some, others will likely find that there’s quite a bit of power packed in the small body. On that note, the vibrations are fairly deep and rumble rather than being surface level and buzzy.
  • If it takes you a while to get off, not to worry, with a full charge offering up to 2 hours of playtime, depending on the vibration setting of course, you’ll likely quite before it does.
  • Side Note: One of the things I have always loved about We-Vibe it’s the fact that the customer service they offer is above and beyond anything you’d expect. After a few hours of relentlessly searching for the lost tiny and stupid USB adapter, I emailed them to let them know and asked for a replacement, even offering to pay for one. Within an hour or so someone responded and had one out for me the next day. Bravo We-Vibe! Bra-fucking-vo!.

Regarding size you’re looking at a total length of  7.5″ (stretched flat), with 3.5″ of that being fully insertable.  At its thickest (the g-spot bump) it’s 1 1/8″  in diameter and has a circumference of 4″.  If you’re someone that likes girthier things you’ll probably find the Thrill to be a little on the small size, however if you prefer that type of thing, it’ll likely be a nice addition.

Operating Instructions

In theory the C/U shaped Thrill is pretty basic: intended for solo use, the small end is inserted vaginally with the “bump” offering g-spot stimulation, while the other end rests on the clitoris providing external stimulation. If this sounds familiar, it’s probably because there are quite a few products with similar configuration, the Original We-Vibe, Lelo Insignia Tiani, Lelo Noa, and PicoBong Mahana being the first that come to mind.  Fortunately they’re not all entirely identical (can we say Patent lawsuits for EVERYBODY!?), allowing each to provide slight differences in stimulation.

To turn it on simply press the button (located between the two silver charging prongs) and it will begin to vibrate at the lowest setting (3200 rpm), press it again and you’ll jump to the next highest setting (3600 rpm), once more and you’ll be at the second highest setting (4200), and finally, one last press and you’re at the highest steady vibe (4800).  After that each press will take it through the 4 different patterns. Rather than trying to explain them, because I can’t, I’m just going to post images from the We-Vibe website below. Hopefully they’ll make better sense than I ever could. To turn it off simply hold the button for 3 seconds and it’ll quickly power down.

  1. Tease Tease
6.  Wave Wave
  1. Pulse Pulse
8. Cha-cha Cha-Cha

As for charging you’ve basically only got the option of using the USB it comes with. I hate this! Not only does it make charging a pain in the ass, but since I often use my laptop (my PC hates me!) it tends to get in the way. There is no point in time when I want to sit writing or watching a movie while the We-Vibe Thrill is charging beside me. More than that, the magnet, much like the ones used by Fun Factory, doesn’t stay put long enough fully charge without breaking connection.  To make things even more annoying, the cord isn’t very long; no matter where you are, there it is. *sigh*

Finally, the magnetic USB that connects to the actual product is a separate small piece – meaning, it’s not actually attached to the cord (as you can see in the picture to the left: all separate pieces! Ugh!). Why they did this I have no damn clue – it should just be one piece. Period. Maybe if it worked with other things I wouldn’t be so pissy, but since I can’t use it with anything else, not my Blackberry, camera, my husbands cell, nor anything else, it’s totally useless. If they were trying to create something that could potentially be multi-purpose they failed. Stupid magnetic We-Vibe charger is stupid.

End rant.

The Bad

Like I said, the bad far outweighed the good… bare with me, I’ve got a lot of ground to cover.

First and foremost, even though it packs a bit of a punch it’s not quite as strong as it should be. You see, at the highest setting it’s the same vibration speed as both the Tango and Salsa, yet it feels as if it doesn’t quite compete. The reason for this… the thicker silicone works against the product by diluting the power of the vibrations.  That isn’t to say it’s not good, just that it should be better. And it’s not.

I love silicone products for a variety of reasons, but they’re not all created equal. The silicone I often find We-Vibe using is more of glossy texture, causing it to drag on the skin, which can be uncomfortable if you don’t have enough lube. And it attracts lint and pet hair. Unfortunately the handle is also coated in silicone, making it very slippery when lubed hands try to keep control. I honestly would have liked to see something a little softer or matte in texture just so it was easier to hold onto.

Speaking of lube, whether it’s your own or manufactured, once you get it in place don’t expect it to stay there. Instead what you’ll likely find is the We-Vibe Thrill slip sliding around in your vulva while you clamp onto it like a banshee in heat. It’s awkward in a way that’s hard for me to fully describe. Let’s just say that if Duct Tape wasn’t so painful to pull off I might have taped it in place just so I could maintain long enough to get off without having to continually stop and reposition it.

*note: the best position I’ve found to work with it is sitting while watching porn. Sounds weird, I know. Maybe it’s just me and my body but I find that between the angle and closing my legs I’m able to keep in it in place decently while I focus on other things without being too preoccupied by it shifting around. Of course this isn’t an ideal situation, but it works, and in the case of Thrill, that’s what matters.

Although the design is meant to offer both clitoral and g-spot stimulation I often find it coming up a tad short… I can get the g-spot portion in perfectly but then the clitoral portion doesn’t seem to fully cover the clit. Alternatively, when the external portion is properly in place the g-spot part leaves me wanting. All that said, it’s pretty clear that it’s not going to fit the body the way it should , especially for those that have a g-spot that sits a little deeper or those that require something with a pretty intense curve (G-Ki, Njoy Pure Wand or Lelo Ella – even though they don’t all vibrate – would be much better options). Elongating the clitoral portion would have been a great idea, who knows, maybe they’ll make that change with the next round of adaptations.

Because the external portion has some weight to it, letting it go will likely lead it to slowly slip out… sure it’s a great way to streghthen your kegels, but that’s not what it’s for. And it’s kind of fucking annoying.

Last but not least, the handle could be a bit larger. Maybe it’s just my fat little Greek sausage fingers but I cannot get anything in that space comfortably without a fight (no pun intended). It’s usually a little too late before I realize I’ve crammed in my fingers while trying to maintain control, only to have them get stuck or slowly go numb with pins and needles. They could have made it a bit more stretchy, wider, thinner, flexible or open, but they didn’t and I’m not impressed. Not everyone has skinny fingers, that’s something that needs to be taken into consideration.

Care & Cleaning

Even though it’s made of silicone I wouldn’t suggest boiling it since you’ll likely kill the motor. Instead just give it a good wash with liquid soap and water and rinse it well. Like all silicone it’s non-porous and therefore won’t absorb lube, bacteria, or bodily fluids, and therefore won’t require the same heavy duty cleaning lesser products would. Once dry I suggest keeping it in the box or wrapping it in a lint free cloth, it collects lint/pet hair like a mofo.

As for lubes I’d only suggest a good water based lube as a silicone one would likely ruin it with time.

Final Verdict

Even though I have my complaints I can honestly say it’s not completely horrible. And yes, I’ve had better, but I’ve also had much worse.  For the most part it’s easy to use, discreet, body safe, offers dual stimulation in non “rabbit” form, is fully waterproof, rechargeable, travels well, has a variety of vibration settings, is professionally packaged, and may be exactly what you want… if you don’t mind fighting to keep it in place, diluted vibrations, have fat little sausage fingers, or have a lower sitting g-spot, that is.

I can also honestly say it needs some work before it lives up to the standards I have for all We-Vibe products, but being that they are a company that listens to customer feedback and makes changes as they deem necessary, I wouldn’t be surprised if the next round of manufacturing stomps a few of the issues and creates something a little more lust worthy.  Personally I think you’d be much better off waiting for an improved version, but in the meantime, get your hands on the Touch, Tango or Salsa, trust me – they’re some of the best on the market and definitely worth the money!

To get more info, or get your hands on any of the other products We-Vibe makes, head over to one of my all time fave online shops, SheVibe, where you’ll likely find yourself spending countless hours going through the incredible graphic novel style pages, and saving a few dollars in the process.

Review: The Rock Box

One of the things I’ve always prided myself on is being handy when it comes to DIY projects, building stuff, and general run of the mill home renovations. I can put up perfectly level shelving in a blink of an eye, saw the shit out of wood like it’s no ones business and put together IKEA furniture almost effortlessly (I said almost), but it seems that using good ol’ power tools is where I excel; give me an electric drill, heat gun or circular saw and I’m in heaven…

rockbox

So when I saw the Rock Box, a newish “vibe” toted as an “Incredibly Powerful Orgasm Machine“, I figured two of my fave things, sex toys and power tools, had finally meshed to create the most badass invention ever.  Boy was I wrong.  A shit tonne wrong.  Mournfully wrong.

And it sucks so much it hurts.

Packaging

Although the packaging of the thick cardboard box is sleek, professional and heavy duty, it seems there was minimal attention paid to maintaining an air of discretion; located on each upper right corner are the words “Incredibly Powerful Orgasm Machine” splayed in a font that’s hard for anyone to miss.

As if that wasn’t overkill, located on the back in large bolded black type are the words “Orgasmic Engineering For Men And Women“.  While I understand that this may have been used to deter anyone from thinking it was an actual power tool, rather than a sex toy cleverly disguised as such, I can’t help but think it’s also a tad obnoxious.  In total the word ‘orgasm’ was used 7 times, leaving me to ponder, is that really necessary?

No, no it is not.

Especially since the majority of people would be looking for it specifically, and most likely shopping on an adult website, not Home Hardware or Home Depot for crying out loud.

Even with all of that, what perplexed me most was the inclusion of the descriptions “She’s a punk rocker” and “He’s a punk rocker too!” – I get it, it’s called “Rock Box” and therefore someone felt the need to run with the theme. But to me, this just comes off as tacky and cheesy, not catchy or highbrow. Bonus points for trying though.

The Good

Before I go into all of the reasons the Rock Box will likely end up sitting tucked away in a corner collecting dust, I figure it’s a good idea to list the few redeeming qualities it has, because for as unimpressed as I was, there were some:

  •  It’s powerful. Really powerful. We’re talking 5,000 rpm’s here… which is fucking insane! Yes, it’s the same as the highest setting on the Hitachi Magic Wand, but the design makes it feel much stronger than that. Almost to the point of being overwhelming.  Of course it’s not quite as strong as the Fairy Mini Wand (which comes in at a whopping 11,000 rpms), but it’s more than sufficient to get the job done… if you don’t go numb first.
  • There’s attachments for both ‘girls’ and ‘guys’, making it doubly useful. Whether both will use it remains to be seen, but at least they didn’t just target it to one market.
  • I’d say it’s discreet. No one in their right mind would think it’s meant for masturbation, though I’m sure they’d have a bunch of questions if they ever did come across it.
  • With only one button and a dial located on the ‘ergonomic’ handle, it’s very easy to operate. Well, for the most part anyways.
  • Measuring 20 ft in length, it’s got the longest power cord on a “massager” I have ever seen. Okay, I’ll admit I’m reaching for positives here, but for those with minimal outlets it’ll definitely come in handy.

Operating Instructions

As stated above, getting the Rock Box going is surprisingly simple… however putting it all together, that’s another story.

For Women: Take the female attachment (the pink tongue like thing), pinch the clips at the end and slide it into the ‘vibration plate’, once it clicks it’s in place. Plug the lead into the plug socket located opposite the handle and plug it into the wall outlet. Start with the dial on 1 (trust me on this) and press the square button located on the underside of the handle, by now you should be experiencing the thumping rumble that is the Rock Box. To adjust the speed just turn the dial up/down, or for those that like a bit more control, press the button on and off for a pulsing experience. To turn it off just press the button. To remove the attachment pinch the clip at the end and slide it out of place (it’s advised that the product be unplugged when you do this). Easy peasy.

For Men: Basically follow the same steps as above, but use the flat attachment.

Being that this isn’t your ‘typical’ masturbation device there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind… don’t let the male adapter vibrate on your testicles, it’s not meant to be used internally, like a candle never leave it going unattended or covered with anything, and since it’s powered by an electrical outlet it can’t be used in the water, actually, don’t get any of it wet, ever! Sorry, just following what the instructions say.

As for using it, while the instructions suggest placing it so that the flat section rests on the clitoris and the tip hugs the curve of the vulva (pointing toward your vagina), it worked best for me when the tip was instead used for direct clitoral stimulation. Feel free to toy with it and see what does it for you. Regarding the male experience, I offered it to 3 close male friends and my partner, all in the name of science of course, to which they each scoffed and quickly declined. It seems there ain’t no man I know that wants a potential thumping power tool on his dick. Fair enough, I can’t say I blame them.

  The Bad

Oh My God! Where the fuck do I begin?!

It’s big, it’s bulky, and it’s so heavy it’s annoying. Seriously. Measuring just over 7.5″ inches from side to side, around 6.5″ inches from top to bottom, and bearing a weight of ‘Jesus-Christ-I-can’t-focus-on-my-orgasm-because-I’m-having-sex-with-a-kids-bowling-ball‘, this thing is nothing to laugh at, and in all honesty, makes the ‘ergonomic’ element almost non existent.

RockBox Lint Attraction

best duster evar!

Let’s just say I dropped one of the attachments on the floor and it looked like this after (<—). Gross. And for the record, I’m a clean freak, so seeing this made me shudder. Maybe I should start using sex toys to clean. They clearly do a much better job at picking up pet hair than my vacuum does.

If you follow my reviews you should know by now that I veer on the side of caution, avoiding most rubber or jelly toys when I can. Unfortunately I was mislead and believed the attachments were made of Silicone. They are not. They’re made of TPR, and while it’s better than a basic jelly product (because it’s phthalate and latex free), it is porous and will retain lube, bodily fluids and bacteria. Make sure to clean it well, otherwise, ick!

Although the power is a definite selling point, it’s also a force to be reckoned with. Once the vibration is combined with the weight there is no way you can use it with just one hand… instead you’ll likely find yourself holding onto both sides for dear life or using your thighs like a vice grip to clamp it in place.

Maybe it’s just me, but with the amount of women who are unable to reach climax on their own, the added stress using the Rock Box creates is just too much. Sex toys should not be this challenging.

The folks at the company call them ‘vibrations’, I call them rumblings from the deepest, darkest pits of hell. I’ll admit, I’m the type that loves intense, penetrating, rumbly sensations, but the Rock Box is in a league of it’s own. Having said that, the first 3 settings aren’t bad… and the 4th really doesn’t feel that different from the 3rd, but once you jump to the 5th things get out of control. *The 6th, don’t even. That shit’s just scary. It’s like an angry rabid bunny decided your vag needed to get beaten the fuck up and the only way to do so would be to relentlessly thump at your lady bits with its hind quarters as fast and hard as it can.   Picture it, yeah, my point exactly.

Even though the button and dial are relatively easy to reach, once the thing gets going and you’re thigh mastering like your life depended on it, that feature goes out the window pretty quickly. Especially since your main challenge will now be trying to keep your arm/legs/genitals from shaking out of control or going numb.

stupid clips

Sure, they’re easy to manipulate, but I can’t help but think that the little pinchable clips jutting out at the end of the attachments might suffer from some form of debacle (should it be dropped, clumsily stepped on, or handled a little too roughly) and end up broken, in which case you’d be royally screwed.

One of the things I love about my Hitachi Magic Wand, and pretty much any other hand held massager for that matter, is the fact that it plugs into an outlet allowing me the opportunity to use it for as long as I need without fear of the batteries dying mid orgasm. Knowing the Rock Box was powered by the same source I assumed it would be a benefit… nope, not at all.

Rather than providing the necessary and continued stimulation what you get is a wobbly cord that keeps detaching once the dial goes beyond 3. Awkward and unsatisfying just aren’t the words.

Because of the size of the fan, which is beyond obnoxiously large, the damn thing never sits upright, instead toppling over to one side any time you put it down. All in all, this design makes resting it on your body for hands free action almost impossible. It was a stupid idea and I hate it. There I said it. God I feel better.

Finally, IT’S LOUD. I mean really loud. Lawnmower loud. Distractingly loud…. to the point of being downright awful. Yes, most hand held wands are noisy, but they’re not even close by comparison. It’s so bad that at one point my partner thought I was using the drill to put up shelves. You can imagine his surprise when he walked in and saw me furiously trying to reach an orgams with what appeared to be some form of power tool.

Ah, the life I live, it’s magical.

Care & Cleaning

Since you can’t get any of it wet the only option you have is to wipe it down with a slightly damp cloth or toy wipe. As for the attachments you can do the same, just make sure they’re totally dry before reinserting them.

When it comes to lube, though I don’t know if you’d really need any, I’d suggest a good water based one.

Final Verdict

Not So Incredibly Powerful Orgasm Machine

engine fail!

Clearly the Rock Box has some issues to work out before it can become a coveted product adored by the masses, but like many others that came before, I’m sure there are quite a few people who will benefit from its use. Was I one of them? No, not really, and to be honest, I wouldn’t buy it knowing everything I do now.

The orgasms it delivered, while intense, were something I had to work for, struggle with attaining, and on more than one occasion, bow out of due to the overwhelming urge to pitch it out a window. Yes, my feelings for the Rock Box were just that extreme.

Having just been through hell and back, here’s my suggestion… if you like really intense sensations, have nerve endings that are dulled leaving you in need of something strong, enjoy torturing yourself (or others) in a sexual way by letting rabid bunnies bash your junk, or simply want to try every niche pleasure object created (shit, I do!), then the Rock Box just might be for you. Otherwise, opt for a Sybian, which actually does work, and/or consider yourself forewarned.

Review: Fun Factory DeLight

Fun Factory Delight

snaking curves

When I first saw the Fun Factory DeLight back in 2008 it was instant love.  The curves. The words ‘medical grade silicone’.  The make-shift handle and easily accessible buttons. The variety of vibration settings, rechargeability, splash-proofness and discreet design. Not to mention the fact that it was made by one of my all time fave companies – Fun Factory (which is synonymous with quality). Everything about it screamed POTENTIALLY AMAZING G-SPOT STIMULATION… and yes, I just had to have it.

For as much as I lusted after it, dreaming of the day it would grace my vajayay with its presence, it always seemed to elude me. No matter how hard I worked, begged or pleaded, I just couldn’t seem to get my hands on it. I even saved up for it a few times over, only to find the retailer in question out of stock each time I was ready to buy (partially my fault for wanting a specific color).  And now, years later, when I’ve made peace with the fact that it would forever be ‘the one that got away‘, it falls into my lap with a simple “may I please have for a review“. Funny how life works sometimes. Fun Wares, my lady bits are very thankful.

professional packaging

Packaging

Like all the products Fun Factory makes the packaging is professional, discreet, playful, quality and luxurious.  There’s nothing on it that’s tacky, rude or inappropriate, no naked ladies or gents and definitely nothing that would make you cringe. Instead of the typical and by that I mean cheap plastic clam shell design most intimate accessories come packed in, Fun Factory once again opted to use a sturdy box with a peek-a-boo window, silver and red shades, along with all the benefits and features laid out in a way that’s easy to find, attractive and simple to understand. Basically put, there’s no guess work with this company, what you see is what you get.

The Good

Good things come in oddly shaped, well designed and easy to maneuver packages. At least that’s how I see it with DeLight. Sure, it has a few little kinks that it could stand to have worked out, but for the most part, it’s got everything I want in a vibe and more.

  • It’s discreet,  very discreet. I mean look at it, there is no way you’d think that was a vibrator. Sure, it would likely draw attention due to the amazing colors and strange shape, but for the most part anyone that found it would be totally clueless to the fact you stuffed it in your whoo-ha. Yes, I did just call your vagina a ‘whoo-ha”.  Sue me.
  • It’s crafted out of 2 body safe materials, that together, lend themselves well to the design, making maneuvering the product easy, comfortable and surprisingly ergonomic – one is a smooth and supple, matte, phthalate and latex free silicone that’s totally body safe, hypoallergenic and hygienic (the fucshia colored insertable g-spot stimulator), the other,  a highly polished and hard ABS plastic that’s also non-porous, smooth, glossy and firm (the shiny black sides).  .
  • While I know this will be a downside for the ‘size queens’ reading, it’s much smaller than I imagined coming in at only 6″ in total length (that’s not measuring the whole length since it curves, but instead from top to bottom), with only 4″ being insertable. On that note, 4″ inches, and properly curved ones at that, are more than enough to hit the spot.  Having said that, it’s not meant for deep penetration or thrusting, instead being specifically designed for g-spot stimulation.  Sure, some will likely have to adjust, wiggle, rock or apply pressure to suit their body and personal needs, but for the most part it targets the area with an exceptionally high level of precision I’ve only experienced with a handful of products.
  • Although it’s not hitachi, leaf, or We-Vibe Touch strong, it still packs a bit of a punch, especially when fully charged. More than that, the vibrations can be felt through the entire body of the product. Sure, they tend to diminish the further you get from the area the motor is located, but for the most part you’re able to easily stimulate the entire vulva… we’re talking the clit, labia (big and small), vaginal opening, g-spot, everything! Quite a nice feature for those that like all over sensations.
  • It’s whisper quiet. Even on the highest setting. ‘Nuff said.
  • Maybe it was the way it was pictured online, or the way my silly brain works, but for some reason I never assumed any part of it was fully silicone, instead guessing a portion was coated in it. For many of you this won’t seem like a point worth mentioning, but where sex toys are concerned it makes a big difference.  Not only does it make the insertable end smooth and supple, slightly textured and velvety to the touch, it’s also highly flexible allowing it to move, shift and bend with you while also making insertion very comfortable. Amazing!
  • Okay, so this might not really be a serious selling point, but if you’re sick of the traditional pink, black, purples and weirdly colored pinky purples, DeLight comes in 6 different variations; baby rose/rose, india red/violet, white/orange, violet/violet, and the one I waited forever for blackberry/black. With all those options there’s definitely something for everyone. Unless you like green or blue, then you’re shit outta luck.
  • Since we all know how much I hate using batteries the fact that it’s rechargeable should come as no surprise. Not only does it save you money in the long run, along with the planet, it also gives you a much longer vibration life… without the fear of it dying before you reach a big “O”.
  • DeLight is designed with ease of use in mind; the way the curves fit the body, with the handle upright and buttons directly under the thumb (no matter what you’re doing or how you’re using it), operating it in the moment is a piece of cake… especially since your not fiddling around trying to find buttons that you can’t see or a dial that’s way out of reach. Long story short: it’s ergonomic in a way many other vibrators aren’t.
  • Last but not least, it’s fucking stunning! Well in my opinion anyways. Oh, and let me also ad that pretty much every time I pick it up or look at it, I think of this, Deee-groovy! Deee-gorgeous!! Which is pretty kick ass in it’s own way.

Operating Instructions

When it comes to sex toys one of my biggest complaints is the fact that so many of them seem to require a degree of sorts to figure out how to operate them, and truthfully, I’m getting tired of it. I want my toys to be simple, easy to manipulate, and just as easy to figure out. If I get something and have to read an instruction manual, forget it. I just can’t be bothered. Fortunately most Fun Factory toys are pretty to the point, having minimal buttons and placing them in areas that are easily accessible when in the moment.

simple controls

DeLight is no exception, located on the top of the ‘handle’ are a “+” symbol, “-” symbol and the Fun Factory logo. To turn it on simply hold down the “+” button for 3 seconds and it quickly powers on, lighting up the logo and background with a red glow. To switch through the settings either press the “+” or “-” symbols, the “+” will increase the vibration and the “-” will lesson it, once on the highest setting just press the “+” button once more and it will jump through the various settings, to turn it off simply hold down the “-” button for 3 seconds and it should power down rather quickly.

For easy as it is to master there is one drawback, if you jump past the setting you like you have to cycle through them all over again since the “-” button doesn’t go backwards, instead jumping back to the steady vibration rather than a pattern.

As for the settings, you’ve got 5 to choose from including everything from pulsations, escalations, a random pulse/roller coaster, and a steady vibe. No matter what you’re looking for this quirky toy likely has it.

When it comes to recharging, place the circular charger over the small silver ‘dots’ (located on the back, just under the tip of the handle) and once magnetically connected, the charger will glow red.  Like the Yooo (another Fun Factory product), the charger will repel the connection unless it’s lined up correctly. With that in mind, make sure you place it on a flat surface where it won’t be disturbed – the connection tends to slip out of place, stopping the charge in the process (if at any time the glowing stops you’ll want to check for a disconnection – if it’s not disconnected, it’s stopped because it’s fully charged).

magnetic charger

The Bad

When it comes to things I don’t like about DeLight there are 4, though they aren’t that big of a deal – just things I think should be included so everyone is in the know:

  • The silicone end collects lint… but since almost every silicone toy does that, I’m not going to hold it against the DeLight specifically. I still hate that it does that though.
  • Depending on whether your g-spot sits shallow in the vaginal canal (closer to the opening) or a little farther back, the g-spot curve may or may not be right for you. If it’s shallow, you should be good. Otherwise, I’d suggest something like the G-Ki since trying to hit it may prove awkward.
  • Before I go on I just want to say that this isn’t necessarily an issue with the product, or something I don’t specifically dislike, though it is something I think would make it a whole bunch better: the upper portion of the product (i.e. the portion that touches your clitoris when tilted forward) doesn’t have an area that vibrates. Yes, you can feel the vibrations through the entire body of the vibe when it’s turned on, but for the most part they aren’t as strong as in the tip where the vibe is located. It might just be my opinion, but I personally think the addition of another vibrating area (where the vibrations were concentrated) would make the DeLight one hell of a dual stimulator. Sure it might mean more buttons, and maybe a bit of a thicker body, but if it means a better orgasm, I can deal with that.
  • The ‘extra bump’ designed to stimulate the clitoris is just stupid. Every friend I asked said there’s no way it would hit the area since theirs didn’t sit that low, if anything it would work better as a point of reference to know how deep the vibe is inserted. Survey says, “rename that portion”.

Care & Cleaning

You can easily clean it with a toy wipe or by washing with antibacterial soap and warm water. While it is splash-proof I wouldn’t suggest fully submerging it as there’s a chance you’d kill it. I’d also suggest sticking with a good water based lube since a silicone version would likely ruin it over time.

Final Verdict

Even though 4 years has gone by since I first spied it (which is a long time in sex toy years), my much anticipated DeLight hasn’t let me down, remaining innovative, luxurious and high tech, rather than outdated or old. To be honest, I think it was far ahead of its time, and only now other companies are starting to catch up.

Review: Lelo ~ Design Edition Tiani 2

New & Improved Tiani 2

When it comes to couples vibes for use during intercourse you’ve got a few options to choose from, the external clitoral stimulator Fixsation panty set, the We-Vibe (with it’s many incarnations), simple to use yet not always fulfilling cock rings,  and the newest kid on the block; the remote controlled Lelo SenseMotion Tiani 2 (an updated version of the original Tiani  – a product I opted not to review thanks to the disgruntled review it received from one of my fave reviewers, Dangerous Lilly).

Fortunately all of the design issues the original Tiani faced have been fixed, creating a product that’s easy to use (whether alone or with a partner), whisper quiet, discreet, comfortable, totally stunning, body safe, waterproof, and rechargeable. With everything it has to offer the Tiani 2 encompasses pretty much everything I look for in a couples vibe, now add to that the fact that there’s a remote control (one that actually works) and I’m pretty damn impressed.

Packaging

Like everything LELO does the product is very professionally packaged; the box is both colorful and pretty with nothing on it that’s rude, inappropriate or tacky. There’s no nudity, profanity, or cheesy slogans, nor is there anything else that might make you recoil at the sight of it. The box itself is “designer” in appearance and could easily be mistaken for an unknown high-tech gadget found in a department store or high end boutique.

Once the outer box is removed you’ll find a matte cardboard box with the LELO logo embossed in shiny black on the front, inside the box sits the Tiani 2, remote, and a small compartment that holds the attachment, charging cord, and a sample packet of Lelo Personal Moisturizer (a.k.a lubricant).

*For the record mine didn’t come with instructions, batteries, the “key” to open the battery compartment or the satin pouch. When I asked my contact at the company about this she suggested I check the space under where the vibe sits as they often slide down and get missed. Unfortunately mine still didn’t have them, but that isn’t to say yours won’t.

The Good

Considering it’s a product made by LELO I had very high expectations, how could I not, they’re the makers of my fave dual stimulator Ina, designed what I think may be one of the very best g-spot targeted silicone dildos on the market, Ella, and were one of the first intimate accessory manufacturers to branch into the ‘luxury’ market with an amazing response from consumers and retailers. Over the years they’ve set the bar fairly high for others to follow, with their newest upgrade, Tiani 2, being no exception.

As expected Tiani 2 is very well-made with much attention paid to detail, functionality and appearance;

  • The body is sleek, compact and futuristic, with a texture that’s velvety smooth to the touch, supple and very luxurious, to be honest, it looks more like something you’d use in conjunction with an iPhone or iPod than during intercourse.
  • Each of the attachments can be easily affixed with a quick twist of the wrist and don’t require any additional parts or locking pieces. On top of that, they’re highly flexible, allowing them to bend, move and shift with you and your partner(s) when in the moment.
  • The bulbous design of the external portion makes stimulating the vulva easy to achieve. For those of you with a higher placed clitoris this may be all you have to go with since targeting the clit may be a tad difficult.
  • Vaginal insertion with or without lube is comfortable due to the texture of the silicone, and once inserted, the thinness of the ‘arms’ make adding a penis (or dildo) much easier than I found with the We-Vibe.
  • On that note, the entire product is comfortable. Not once did I feel like I was being poked or prodded, nor did it feel like there was something “extra” crammed inside me.
  • Since the vibe is rechargeable you don’t have to worry about batteries, it’s also waterproof for use in the bath or shower (just make sure the attachments are properly secured and there’s no overlapping parts where water may get inside).
  • The silicone used is totally body safe and non-toxic, hypoallergenic, hygienic, non-porous, odourless and phthalate/latex free, with the colors being bright and punchy (you’ve got the option of black,  purple or fuschia).
  • Finally, all LELO products come with a 1 year replacement warranty and and a 10 year guarantee – in the world of sex toys that’s a really big deal!

Everything considered there’s nothing about it that’s cheap, intimidating or tasteless, though I will admit, I found the metallic goldish bar wrapping the body to be slightly garish. Of course that’s just a matter of appearance, for some it will lend itself well to the high-end market they’re targeting.

As for the attachments, I personally like that they included two, especially since the original didn’t do much for me, nor did it stay in place very well. Having said that, I’m not sure if it was because of the slight lip/indent (not really visible in the bottom right photo), tiny increase in length and thickness, the squared and therefore wider surface area, or all of the above, but the second version did much more for me than the original when it came to g-spot stimulation.

Operating Instructions

Considering my Tiani 2 didn’t come with any instructions I was left to my own devices when it came to figuring it out, and to be honest, for as comfortable with technology and vibrators as I am, it was a bit of a challenge. So for those of you that find yourself in my predicament, I hope this helps:

For Use Without the Remote (Solo Mode)

To power on the toy, push the button located on the lower portion of the vibe and hold down for a few seconds, to cycle through the patterns simply press the button, each time you press it you’ll jump to the next setting. Unfortunately there is no ‘back’ button so if you accidentally jump past your fave setting you have to cycle through them again. To turn it off simply press and hold the button for 3 seconds and it will power down. Just keep in mind that the speed during solo mode is set at the highest and cannot be increased or decreased without the remote.


For Use With the Remote (SenseMotion Mode)

Before I go on I just want to make sure to mention a few things:

  • In SenseMotion mode the controller will vibrate in sync with the toy so the person holding it can feel what the person with the vibe feels, however you can turn it off by holding down the “|” button.
  • If the remote loses the signal the vibrations won’t stop, they’ll just go back to the basic vibration.
  • Each of the products must be powered on and off separately – you can’t turn off the vibe by using the remote.
  • If you hold down the “+” and “|” buttons simultaneously for about 3 seconds the remote will lock, press them again and they’ll unlock. It’s a nifty little addition, but I don’t know if it’s something I’d ever use.

Power on the vibe as before,  then power on the wireless remote by pressing the “+” button located on the silicone side (I suggest allowing at least 5 seconds for the connection to be made between the two devices). Once the connection is established, proceed to whichever “SenseMotion” mode you want by pressing the middle button (if you want the first setting press it once, if you want the second setting press it twice etc), you’ve got 3 to choose from:

1.) Simply twist the remote from horizontal to vertical position to increase or decrease the intensity of the vibration. It’s actually pretty cool when you’re holding it to feel the change in speed.
2.) Move the remote any way you wish, shake it, roll it, flip it etc. and the vibe will react in different ways – consider this your ‘free for all’ mode (the faster you move the controller, the more intense the vibrations become. Can we say fun? I think we can!).
3.) If you have a certain pattern you like (be it pulsation, escalation, steady vibe etc – there’s 6 patterns to choose from), simply press the middle button until you find it, once you find it you can press the “+” or “|” buttons to increase or decrease the power of the vibrations.

To power off the remote hold down the “|” for 3 seconds.

As for the actual usage of the product, it’s got quite a bit going for it:

  • Both the vibe and cordless remote are whisper quiet, allowing for an ease of experimentation, in private or public, that’s free of the distraction many other louder vibes often beget (it can’t be heard though clothes, walls or doors).
  • The remote is palm sized and ergonomically designed making it easy to hold and manipulate in the moment, without also being heavy, awkward or bulky.
  • Unlike other products that require pressing a button to get a desired change in vibration, simply turning, twisting or shaking the remote changes the speed, offering the opportunity to play without having to constantly stop and see what you’re doing.
  • Quite surprisingly the  range from remote to vibe is rather impressive, with the remote maintaining contact with the vibe just over 20ft (we didn’t try any farther though the website states it’s good for up to 39ft).
  • Regarding the vibrations, you’re looking at a mix of surface level and buzzy or slightly rumbly depending on the setting/speed, having said that they’re surprisingly strong for a smaller product and carry the sensation through the entire body of the toy rather nicely.
  • Once charged the product has a 9o day stand-by, with a two hour charge offering around 2 hrs worth of play time, for most that’s more than enough to mutually reach an orgasm. Wanting to test the toy I turned it on and left it sitting for just over 2 1/2 hours, when I came back it was still going, though the light was flashing to indicate that it needed to be recharged.

All in all it’s fun to play with, though there is a definite learning curve, with or without the instructions. Having said that, I’d highly suggest playing with it on your own before inviting a partner, otherwise you’ll likely find yourself lost and confused, wondering wtf you’re doing, and in the process, miss out on some of the kick ass features Tiani 2 has to offer during partner play.

Recharging the Tiani 2 is actually really simple, just remove whichever attachment you’re using, plug the adapter into the white portion that juts out from the body of the vibe and plug it into the outlet.  During charging a small light (the same one that indicates that it’s on) will blink, once fully charged it will continually glow. For a two hour charge you’ll get around 2 hours worth of use, with a 90 day stand-by time.

Rather than being rechargeable like the vibe, the remote requires 2 AAA batteries. To insert them you’ll need to take the “key”, place the flat portion into the center indentation and twist, once you’ve done this the back should pop off and you can insert the batteries. Unfortunately mine didn’t come with the “key” so I had to use a random penny.

charging port and attachments

Care & Cleaning

Because it’s crafted out of body safe silicone that won’t absorb bodily fluids, lube or bacteria, it won’t need the same heavy duty cleaning other products require, as such simply washing it with warm water and antibacterial soap should suffice.

*I’d also suggest removing the arm and giving the internal parts a wipe with a damp cloth or toy wipe as fluids can sometimes make their way into and under the seam. Just make sure to avoid getting any of the water or soap into the charging socket of the toy.

Regarding lubes I’d only suggest a good water-based version since a silicone lube would likely ruin the product over time.

The Bad

When it comes to my personal dislikes, there’s a few worth mentioning;

  • Depending on your body and where your clit/g-spot are located (high or low/deep or shallow) the ‘arms’ may or may not be able to deliver stimulation exactly where you need it. Fortunately the inclusion of another ‘arm’ might make targeting the g-spot a bit more of a reality for some.
  • Because the arms aren’t very long or thick, some may have a hard time with them staying in place. There were a few occasions where the vibe shifted for us during use (mostly due to the positions we were in), but with it being rather thin and not too intrusive, reaching down and adjusting it back into place (with him inserted) wasn’t very difficult.
  • The remote runs on batteries rather than being rechargeable, not exactly impressive, but I’ll deal with it.
  • If you’re not very tech-savvy it may be slightly overwhelming to figure out how to make it work (with the remote). Then again, considering we’re becoming a very technologically invested society, that could also be considered a selling point. Being that mine didn’t come with instructions there was a bit of a learning curve, leaving me to fiddle for some time on my own before venturing into partner play.
  • Depending on how “tight” you are (God I hate that word!), or how large your partner is, it may not be comfortable during intercourse. Alternatively it may also be highly stimulating, adding that little something extra to help you get off… I found the latter to be the case with us.
  • It’s not exactly cheap (available for between $119 – $159 depending on the website) but then again I don’t expect it to be – like any high end intimate accessory it’s an INVESTMENT. You’re paying for quality, durability, functionality and luxury – all of the things you don’t get with cheaper made products mass produced by big corporate manufacturers.
  • If you hate finger prints or smudge marks the metallic goldish side of the remote may make you crazy. Lint on silicone is my pet peeve so I was fine.
  • Although the silicone is virtually seamless, the parts where the connectors attach does have a seam which may collect fluids and debris, along with being potentially uncomfortable.
  • Even though it’s relatively powerful it may not be enough to some to climax with.

Having said all of that I still think the Tiani 2 is a pretty incredible little toy. Yes, it has its issues, but for the most part it’s fun… and sex should almost always be fun!

Final Verdict

If you’ve been on the hunt for a remote controlled vibe designed for use during intercourse, one that’s body safe, whisper quiet, comfortable, and discreet, while also being rechargeable, waterproof and luxurious, the Tiani 2 may just be what you’ve been looking for. Sure there are other versions of wireless vibes available, but the SenseMotion technology is what sets it in a class of its own; not only does it blend high end intimate accessories with a functionality that’s hard to beat, it puts you and your partner(s) in a state of control that may have previously been impossible to achieve.
