Lelo Lyla 2 Review

I was very lucky to be sent the Lelo Lyla 2 for review by Bondara, as always the package arrived in some super discrete packaging and quickly to.

Lelo Lyla 2

The Lelo Lyla 2 comes in some very stylish and tastefully designed packaging with some lovely clear pictures of the toy and some information about how it works and what it does, inside this box is a black Lelo gift box with the vibrator, remote, charger, brooch, instructions and sample of Lelo personal lubricant inside, the vibe and remote is in some moulded packaging to keep it safe and to allow you to store it safely when it isn’t been used.

Before you use the Lyla 2

Before you use the Lyla for the first time you need to charge up the vibrating bullet and insert batteries into the remote control, to charge the Lyla you need to unscrew the shiny and plug in the charger into the base of the bullet, when it is charging the light flashes and when it is done the light stays one, the initial charge will take approximately 2 hours, and after that it should be shorter depending on how long its been used for, a 2hr charge should give you approximately 2hours worth of use although this will vary depending on the setting which you use it on.

To insert the batteries into the sensemotion control you need to unscrew the shiny cap, if you are having problems lelo has included a handy key to help, but by using flat hands and a little pressure it is pretty easy to unscrew and to fasten again, it takes 2aaa batteries which lelo have very kindly included with the Lyla 2.

Once you have charged your bullet and you have put the batteries into the remote you are ready to go, firstly you need to turn on the bullet, a single press on the top of the bullet turns it on and the light flashes to show that it is turned on, you can use this without the remote control by pressing the button repeatedly to scroll through the 6 pre-programmed modes:-

constant
pulse
fast pulse
rollercoaster low-high
rollercoaster low-high-low
rollercoaster high-low-high-low-low-med (kinda random)
But when you use is in conjuction with the remote control you can change the speed of the vibrations by using the + and – buttons.

Lelo Lyla 2 Premium Remote-Controlled Bullet Vibrator Comes in Deep Rose

The Lelo Lyla can be used as a bullet vibe on its own against the clit and the vibrations are nice and strong for this and they are also pretty quiet to but it can also be worn internally like an egg vibrator and controlled remotely by you or your partner.

How does the remote control work

The sensemotion remote control is fantastic, it is the best remote that I have handled with a remote controlled toy, ever. Unlike all of the other remote controls that I have tried it also vibrates, not quite as strongly as the vibrator but it mirrors what the vibrator is doing, meaning that whoever is attached the vibrator can control exactly what the vibrator is doing at all times by the feel of the remote. I have tried so many remote control vibes before which have ended up with the hubby asking me if it is on or off and what it is doing, which takes all of the fun out of having a remote control vibe. You can use the remote as a standard remote control using the + and – to control the speed and the middle button to scroll through the settings.

Or you can use the sensemotion functions which we found to be much more fun, there are 2 separate sensemotion modes, when you turn on the remote it is already in the first mode, this mode allows you to change the speed of the vibrations by rotating the remote control in your hand.

Key Features

  • 3X the wireless range and signal strength of the original design for enhanced functionality (up to 118 feet depending on the environment)
  • 50% more power and additional control options than original SenseMotion Series, can control with or without the wireless remote using a multi-functional button on the massager itself
  • Wireless controller adjusts vibration speed and intensity through the user’s choice of 6 pre-set patterns or with a flick of the wrist in the 2 SenseMotion modes; controller mirrors same vibration patterns as the massager
  • Fully waterproof and rechargeable
  • FDA-approved body-safe silicone

The second sensemotion setting is activated by pressing the centre program button, this allows you to speed up the vibrations by moving the remote up and down, the faster you move it the faster it vibrates.

When we used the remote control with the vibrator we found that the range was brilliant, my husband went into the Kitchen and closed the door and he could still control the vibrator that was inside me in the living room, plus he could feel through the remote what it was that he was doing to me, this is really quite impressive as other remote control toys we have had haven’t even come close to this. When the vibe is been worn internally it is incredibly discrete and quiet, there is a retrieval loop which should be worn on the outside of the body to help remove the vibrator when it is finished with. The remote does made some noise though when it vibrates, and wouldn’t be quite as discrete if you were out in public with it, it is quite large and it buzzes when it buzzes.
Both the remote and the vibrator are made from matching silicone, as with all Lelo toys the silicone is lovely and soft and perfectly smooth without any seams or edges which could be uncomfortable when used against your more sensitive areas, the remote is incredibly tactile and sits in the palm of the hand perfectly, my husband actually said that he found it impossible to hold it without wanting to turn it over in his hands, and everytime he did the vibrator buzzed away in response to this.

As with all silicone toys these should not be used with silicone lubricants and should be stored away from other silicone toys, silicone reacts with silicone and if you use the wrong lube or let it sit with some other silicone toys it can become damages and misshapen.
The Lyla 2 is waterproof which is great if you like to use your toys in the bath or the shower, it is also good news for cleaning it, it means that you can wash it in some warm soapy water with some antibacterial soap, although I prefer to use some good quality sex toy cleaner with all of my toys.
Overall we were both very impressed with the Lelo Lyla 2 and its remote, the range is good, the vibrations are good, it is comfortable to wear internally due to its quality materials and great shape, it is pretty versatile as it can be used as a bullet or a remote controlled egg. I would highly recommend this remote vibe to anyone who is looking for something that actually works as so many remote control vibes on the market don’t work very well.

Lelo Ina 2 Review

I was contacted by Lovebuddy and asked to choose something from their site for review, after a good look through I was drawn to the Lelo Ina 2, having always had problems with rabbits and always really wanted them to work for me, I was hoping that this would be the rabbit style vibrator to change all of my previous thoughts about rabbit vibrators.

Lelo Ina 2

It arrived via courier in some discrete packaging, which was lucky for me as my neighbour took it in for me, Inside the boring brown box was my lelo packaged a box with some nice clear images of the Ina 2 on the front and some good details about what it does on the side. Inside this outer box is another black gift type box, and inside that in its specially moulded packaging is the Ina 2 and all of the bits that come with it (charger, storage pouch, lube sachet, instructions, guarantee card).

Before you use it

Before I could use the Ina 2 it needed charging, charging a lelo is a piece of cake, just open the cap on the base and slot in the power connector and then plug it into the mains, it will flash whist it is charging and stop flashing when it is fully charged. The initial charge will take about 2hrs but this should give you up to 4hours of playtime. If you top up the charge after each use it shouldn’t take so long to charge after the initial charge, when it starts to run out of charge the buttons will flash when you turn it on.

Once it had charged and before I could use it I needed to take off the travel lock, all lelo’s are delivered with a very small amount of charge and they all need the travel lock taking off before you can use it, to turn off the travel lock on the Ina 2 you need to hold down all of the buttons for a few seconds.

How to use the Lelo Ina 2

Finally after charging it and taking off the travel lock it was ready to go, to turn it on you hold down the + button, it comes on with a constant vibration and holding the + down will increase the speed of the vibrations, to turn it off you just hold down the – button until the vibrations stop. The vibrations on the Ina 2 are very strong, I was amazed by how powerful the vibrations where, the Ina 2 really is good for those that need power. There are also 2 other buttons on the control panel, these buttons let you scroll through the various patterns which the Ina has, some of the patterns are very good, as they seem to alternate which part of the Ina is vibrating and I haven’t seen this on any other rabbit.

Lelo Ina 2 Rechargeable Vibrator Comes in Purple

The Ina 2 is also a pretty quiet vibrator, all the Lelo’s that I have tried have been quiet and this is no exception if you live in a shared house you won’t have any problems with them hearing this one when it is turned on.

So I gave it a try…  all in the interest of writing a proper review you understand, using a small amount of waterbased lube (the Ina 2 is silicone and you should never use silicone lube with silicone toys) I slid the largest part inside me and the smaller end sat on my clit, very very firmly, to firmly in fact, it was a little pinchy, and not comfortable at all. I tried to change the position of the clit vibe slightly as it does have a little flex in it, but no matter what it sprang back again making it pinchy again. Clearly this is another rabbit style vibe that is not designed for my body. I removed the body and just held the small clit vibe part against my clit, this vibe is very very strong and it feels amazing, it is just a real shame that I wasn’t able to use it as a rabbit as I imagine that if I had that it would have been pretty mind blowing.

Key Features

  • Improved design with greater flexibility. Battery- Li-Ion 500mAh 3.7V. Charging- 2hrs at 5.0V 500mA
  • 100% More power with fully-waterproof versatility
  • Extra convenient charging socket; fully rechargeable and easy-to-use
  • Made from FDA-approved, body-safe silicone and ABS plastic which are both latex and phthalate free

The Ina 2 is waterproof so it is suitable for use in the bath or shower and can be washed in warm soapy water after use, I always use an antibacterial sex toy cleaner after cleaning my toys just to be on the safe side and to make sure everything is sparkly clean and ready for use.

The Lelo Ina 2 is made from supersoft super smooth silicone which isn’t sticky and has no smell to it at all, it feels really lovely in the hand.

Overall I feel that I am clearly not made for this vibrator, its just to pinchy and not flexible enough for me, which is a real shame as the quality and feel of the toy is great, its rechargeable, waterproof, silicone, non smelly, quiet and super powerful. If my body was a slightly different shape it would feel great but sadly I am not.

Review of Lelo Insignia Alia

I have been lusting after this toy for months and months, in fact I got my hands on one when I went to Amsterdam earlier this year with a friend, but at the time I didn’t have the cash to lay out and in Europe the chargers have the wrong plug on them so I left it.

Then this month I finally bought myself one from sextoys.co.uk, and I have not been disappointed, When it arrived I opened the super discrete packaging to find a very well designed box inside.

The box has a lovely clear picture of the toy on it with the details of the features of the vibrator written on it, and some Lelo branding, as with all Lelo toys the box is very tasteful and classy, clearly they have thought about this alot when they have been putting the toy and box together.

On opening the outside box, the toy itself is displayed beautifully in a gift box, with a gold coloured brooch included with the toy. Just an added little bonus from Lelo, and still discrete enough to be able to wear it out and for only those in the know to know what it was and where it had come from.

Included in the box is the charger (as I bought this in the UK it has a UK plug on it) a samply of Lelo personal lubricant, and instruction manual which looks rather thick and OTT but actually isn’t as it has lots of languages in the one book, a 1 year warranty and a 10 year guarantee, A good quality satin storage pouch and the vibrator and a little do/don’t card.

The first thing you need to do when you get your vibrator is charge it, and this is simple, you just push the adapted from the charger into the hole in the bottom of the vibe and plug it in, when it is charging the light flashes and when it has finished charging the light stays on. Similarly when the battery is running out of power the lights on the control panel flash when you turn it on to let you know, so you will never be surprised mid play when your toy turns itself off due to lack of power.

The vibrator is made out of super soft yet firm and smooth silicone, with a plastic gold insert in the middle, the silicone feels really nice and warm to the touch, and tactile really tactile this is one of those toys that once I picked it up I just wanted to hold and roll around in my hands.
It is also waterproof, meaning that you can take this toy anywhere and play with it, the instruction book states that it is waterproof upto one metre even without the silicone cover, but not to charge it in water (like doh),, been waterproof also makes it super easy to clean, and there is no new toy smell, even close up there is no smell to this toy.
The control panel is on the side of the toy, it is very simple to operate, a simply + and – for faster and slower and a 8 button in the middle to flick between the various settings which are, constant vibrations, Slow Pulse, Fast Pulse and then 3 different patterned settings.
As you can adjust the strength of the vibrations aswell as the pattern separately there is no need for a low, med and high setting. To turn the toy back off again you just hold the minus button until the vibrations stop.
The vibrations are concentrated in the pointed end of the vibrator and they are lovely and deep and almost silent even when on the highest setting. The hole in the middle of the toy makes this toy easy to control and direct the vibrations to exactly where you want them, with your fingers through the hole and then your thumb on the control switches, you know you are always going to be in control of this toy.
I found the vibrations on this toy to be of the perfect strength, unlike a lot of vibrators that I have I didn’t get bored and reach for something more powerful after feeling like I was nearly there for an eternity, this toy really does pack a punch.
As this is a silicone toy you need to avoid storing it with other silicone toys as it may react with them and this could cause your toy to become misshapen and melted, this isn’t a problem as this comes with its very own storage pouch with a Lelo tag on it. The pouch doesn’t feel thin and cheap like some of the pouches that I have but it feels thick and good quality, like it will last as long as the toy.
The shape of this toy is unique I don’t think that I have seen another one quite like it, I like the slightly pointed  egg like shape and the fact that it doesn’t look like a sex toy, I don’t think that I would be to worried about anyone spotting this on the side in my bedroom as I don’t think that most people would know immediately what it was, unless that is they either have one or want one. When it is in its little pouch it would sit quite happily in your underwear drawer and blend in perfectly with your underwear.
Overall I think that I have found myself a new favourite, for a long while it has been the Doc Johnson magic bullet, but this one trumps it, it is excellent quality, a great shape has a fantastic amount of almost silent power, and its rechargeable to so no worries about finding batteries for it. 

Lelo Gigi Review

This is the baby pink and white rechargeable Gigi from the luxury sex toy makers Lelo, this was sent to me by the lovely people over at Bondara, it came in some lovely discrete packaging and arrived super-fast.

It comes in some lovely stylish packaging, a simple pink box with Lelo printed on one side and a clear picture of the toy on the other, none of those horrible cheep looking pictures of half naked women on this one, just a lovely simple yet stylish design. Open the pink box and slide out the back box inside, this looks like a lovely gift box, and the packaging alone would make it an ideal present for someone special.

Lelo Gigi 2

Inside the box, is the Gigi, a charger, a sample of the Lelo Lubricant, the guarantee’s and the instructions and a lovely satin storage pouch. This pouch is lovely, it is just the right size for the toy and looks great, it would mean that the toy would be easy to store in a drawer without it looking obvious.

The instruction book is nice and clear with some lovely diagrams inside to help you get started with your new rechargeable toy straight away.

Before you start

Before you play with the Lelo Gigi for the 1st time you need to give it a charge, you remove the rubber stopper and push in the charger much the same as you do with a mobile phone, whilst it is charging the light flashes to indicate that it is charging, once the charge is complete the light stays on, and when the battery starts to run low the light glows red.

The charge takes about 2 hours and a single charge can last up to an hour and a half. When the Gigi is charging it states that you should avoid trying to turn it on, no matter how tempting it may be to do so.

Once it is fully charged, you turn the Lelo Gigi on by using the panel on the front. To turn the vibe on you hold the plus button down for a few seconds, this button also increases the speed of the vibrations.

Functionality

Unlike most other vibrations where you have 3 speeds and a few patterns with this vibe, you can choose your pattern and your speed. The Up and Down arrows scroll through the patterns, when you reach the final pattern rather than going back to the start again you need to scroll back down to it, this is possibly the only thing that I didn’t like about this toy and is a very minor thing.

The plus and minus button adjust the speed, holding the minus button also turns the Gigi off, if you want to lock it then you hold the panel for a few seconds, but I have found that just using the minus button to switch it off is usually enough.

The vibe is slightly smaller than I was expecting but it is a nice size, the white control panel sitting just under your thumb when you are using it making it easily controllable.

The head of the Lelo Gigi is shaped perfectly for me, it pushes right against the g-spot when been used internally but as it is flat it also works equally well against the clit, making this a fantastic all rounder. It is also remarkably quiet, making it perfect for anyone who shares a house.

LELO GIGI 2 Luxury Personal Massager and G-spot Vibrator

Although this vibe is probably a bit more expensive than its battery operated equals, it easily makes up for it in the fact that it is rechargeable, not only does it mean that you won’t be endlessly needing to change batteries, or  having to deal with the vibrator running down mid use as you can keep it topped up, but it is also a lot lighter than a battery operated toy as there isn’t the weight of the battery to add to the toy.

The material that the business end of  the Lelo Gigi is made out of is silicone and it feels really soft and tactile, once I picked it up I didn’t want to put it down. I just love the feel of the head of the toy, the shape and the warmth of the silicone really is something that you need to feel to understand.

Key Features

  • 8 adjustable vibration modes
  • Made from Fda approved body safe silicone
  • Submersible to 1 meter, the charging socket is sealed internally

 

Please note that silicone toys should not be used with silicone lubricant and should be stored separately from other toys to prevent them from reacting with each other and melting, nothing worse than your favourite toy been spoiled because of incorrect storage or lube. The storage pouch which is provided with this toy is the perfect accessory to make sure that this doesn’t happen.

The Vibrations on this toy are good, they are nice and deep and powerful, in fact given its size it is a really powerful toy, they do not buzz so much as throb meaning that they feel lovely and deep.

Overall, I am in love with this vibrator, the shape is lovely making it a perfect toy for both clit and g-spot stimulation, the vibrations go from nice and gentle to strong and throbbing. The charge lasts well and the panel is nice and easy to use. The little storage pouch is just the perfect finishing touch.

Lelo Luna Noir Beads Review

I was sent these Lelo Noir Luna Beads from sextoys.co.uk as a prize for member of the month, something that I was very excited to receive. They arrived very quickly in some super discrete packaging.

When they got here I couldn’t wait to rip the package open and see what was inside, and I wasn’t disappointed the Luna beads come in a lovely black box with a nice clear picture of them on the box and a brief description, they are described as both pleasure and fitness combined.

Inside the outer box is a lovely black presentation box which is stamped Lelo on the top, and inside the box are the beads presented in a moulded casing with a nice satin storage bag and an information booklet. My first impressions of the Lelo Luna beads where good, they look lovely and when you pick them up you can feel the weight inside them rolling around.

The Lelo Luna Noir Beads and the Lelo Mini Beads are the same specifications, The classic bead are 35mm in diametre and weigh 28g each, where the Noir and the mini are smaller and heavier they are only 29mm in diametre and weigh in at 37g each. You maybe wouldn’t think that this would make much difference, but you would be wrong, the smaller the beads the harder they are to keep in place and the heavier the beads are also more difficult to keep in place. These smaller heavier beads are designed for the more advanced user and for people who have used lighter/larger beads in the past and are ready to move onto something more taxing.

I have to admit that when I used both of the balls together I struggled at first to hold them in place, it takes a bit of practice and regular use to build up the strength in the muscles to be able to hold them in place, especially if you are like me and you have had 2 kids. Luckily unlike most other beads of this kind they can be separated and used individually so you can just use the one ball and build up to the two as your muscles get stronger and you get more confident.

The Lelo Luna Beads are made from Body Safe PC ABS  and the casing is made from silicone, there is a retrieval cord attached to one of the beads, but either bead can be used on its own if you wish, and they can be used with or without the casing. I tried both together with the casing and found that the casing helped increase the size slightly, and made the beads feel more sturdy than without, I also tried using the single ball with the cord on its own, I didn’t try the ball without the cord on its own, but there is no reason why you can’t if you feel confident about retrieving it again.

When the beads are been worn you can feel the weight inside rolling around with every even slight movement, and you can feel your muscles trying to grip onto them to keep them in place, I found that been more active helped to make them jiggle more, they are very jiggly jiggle balls.

The Lelo Luna beads come with a very good booklet which shows where you should position the beads, the basic information is that you should only use a very small amount of lube if you need it as this will make the beads slippy and harder to keep in place and that they should be placed approx 2cm inside the vaginal which is just above the muscle wall to make sure that the muscles are having to work to hold it in place. It also advises you that to get any noticeable improvement in the PC muscles you have to work at it regularly and you have to be patient, it takes time before you will notice any real difference, but if you have bought these because you want that effect you should be prepared to wait to get the results that you want.

Overall I really like the Lelo Luna Noir Beads, I love the design of the beads the black silicone case and the glossy beads compliment each other perfectly, the storage bag is a lovely addition, they are very nicely weighted and feel good when they are been worn. I would recommend these for anyone who is experienced with beads and is ready to move on to something more challenging, or someone who hasn’t had children.

Lelo Mia 2 review

This Lelo Mia 2 was sent to me for review by http://www.strawberryblushes.co.uk it arrived very quickly in some lovely discrete and protective packaging.

Lelo Mia 2 comes in black

Mia 2 Presentation

As with all of the Lelo toys that I have the pleasure of owning it came in an outer box with a nice picture of the toy and brief description of what it does on one side and the lelo branding on the other side, inside the outer box is an inner back box which could almost be described as a gift box, and inside this the Vibrator presented beautifully in a moulded protective layer of foam with a sample of lelo intimate massage lotion, instruction manual and satin storage pouch.

The Lelo Mia 2 is a small bullet vibrator and it is charged through a USB, the cap just twists off to reveal the USB connector and then it can be connected to your laptop, pc or even mobile phone charger if you have one with a USB connector. When it is charging there is a pink like which flashes on and off, this light stays on once the Mia 2 is fully charged, the Mia is relatively quick to charge taking approximately an hour.

Fully waterproof and USB-rechargeable

Is the Mia 2 waterproof?

The Lelo Mia 2 is completely waterproof meaning that it is suitable for use in the bath or shower if that is your thing, personally I don’t like using toys in the bath but I still think that waterproof toys are great, they are just so much easier to clean than the non waterproof kind, Lelo recommend that you use a good quality sex toy cleaner to clean your Mia, but you can use warm soapy water if you wish, just don’t put it in the dishwasher, I have a feeling it won’t come out quite as it went in.

The Mia 2 has 6 modes, this took me a little while to work out, the only buttons on the Mia 2 are a plus and a minus button, which to me was just on and off, plus faster and slower, how do you activate those other modes?

Well apparently its not that hard even if its not that obvious at first glance, you need to turn it on and then hold the + button down for 2 seconds it will then activate the next mode, you do this again to work your way through all of the settings, I had to go on the Lelo site and read the manual to work out how to get it to go back to constant and their answer which is that you hold the – button for 1 second. When you have it on the mode that you like you use the + and – buttons to change the speed of the vibrations until it is are the right power level for you. The button on the front of the Mia lights up whenever you press it to show that you have pressed it, and like other Lelo’s when the battery is running low it also flashes.

Key Features

  • With a sculpted tip for accurate external stimulation, MIA 2 has a discreet lipstick design for spontaneous pleasure, whenever and wherever you like.
  • USB-rechargeable with travel lock makes MIA 2 the ultimate travel companion.
  • 6 vibration patterns with adjustable strength that let you find your perfect level of clitoral stimulation.
  • Fully waterproof to 1 m for enjoyment in bath or shower, as well as easier cleaning.
  • Award-winning packaging with full 1-year warranty and 10-year quality guarantee.

The Mia 2 is pretty powerful for such a dinky little bullet vibrator, when it is on full it is more powerful than any other bullet vibrator that I have tried, it is also nice and quiet and the vibrations are lovely and rumbly and deep not buzzy and shallow that often leave me feeling ever numb. The vibrations in the Mia 2 are concentrated in the rounded tip of the vibrator and they do slightly travel down the whole body when it is in use, but the power is definitely in that tip.

I like the look of the Mia 2, it is designed to look a bit like a lippy so you can pop it in your handbag or make up bag when out and about and not raise any eyebrows and I have to say that in this case they have succeeded this really does look like something that you might find in anyone’s hand bag, even the metal strips around the middle adds to this look, I suppose you would have to know lelo and it would have to be showing in just the right way for it to stand out as a vibrator.

The Lelo Mia is the 1st Lelo toy that I have had that isn’t made from silicone, its made from ABS plastic which is body safe and easy to clean, it is even safe for use with any lubricant and for storage with any material.

Overall I am impressed with this cute little Lelo Mia 2, its small, discrete, well packaged, easy to charge, light, quiet and easy to clean, its even got a good amount of power in it, this would make a lovely gift or just a fantastic little addition to anyone’s toy collection. 

Review of the Doxy Massage Wand

The massager

I was contacted by Doxy and asked if I would review the Doxy Massage Wand. It arrived in a brown box with a note attached giving me information about how it works, the note also said that they are working on the packaging as this is a brand new item. When I received it it was in a plastic hygiene wrap.

The first thing I noticed about the Doxy Massage Wand is the size of it, this is the largest wand type massager/vibrator I have ever owned, so I was surprised that it isn’t heavier than it is, given its size it is not a heavy wand.

Lovely padded head

 

The next thing I noticed was the texture of the head of the wand its a soft PVC cover which feels very cushioned. At first touch we thought that this might be leather but it is in fact PVC. The softness of this head does make the wand feel very good to touch, the PVC cover is latex free and free from any Phlalates and other nasties.

The Doxy Massage wand is mains powered and it comes with a UK plug attached to a very long cord, meaning that you shouldn’t have to worry about the lead been long enough to reach wherever it is that you are trying to massage. This also means that it is not waterproof and should not be used in water or submerged for cleaning.

plug and Wire

To clean the head of the Doxy I would advise using a sex toy cleaning spray and a clean papertowel as these sprays are antibacterial and will make sure that the head of the toy is kept nice and clean and hygienic for every use.

When I plugged in the Doxy I found it very easy to use, the Doxy has 2 ways of working, constant vibrations or pulses. The constant vibrations come on a medium power level for the toy, I found this medium level to be a very fast speed but when I slowed it down using the minus button it was very quickly brought under control. The Doxy does advertise itself as the most powerful massage wand in the market and I have to say that it does live upto this claim, I have tried a fair few wands over the years and none of them, not even the mains powered ones that I have tried come close to this when it is on full. I actually think that if you put it in milk the milk would turn to cheese very quickly.

Power Buttons

The pulses are activated by holding down the power button for 2-3 seconds when the massager is turned off and the pulses can be made longer or shorter by pressing the plus and minus buttons on the handle, the pulses gradually increase in speed from slow to fast and the plus-minus doesn’t decrease the power of the pulse just the length of it. To reset it to constant vibrations again you simply turn it off and back on again.

I personally preferred the constant vibrations as I like to be in control of how powerful the vibrations are and the pulses although you can control the length of the pulse you cannot control the speed that the pulse gets upto.

This is a massage wand and I should include a bit about massage in the review, this is a good wand to use for sports massage and I personally have used it after running when some how I have pulled my shoulders (probably spending to long looking at the screen on the treadmill hunched over) and found that when it is used this way it is very effective.

Doxy Massager

However, we all know that massage wands are mainly used for masturbation right? I have certainly never thought about them in any other way, maybe I am a little warped like that. For masturbation this thing rocks, it is so powerful it blows your mind and that is without it been on full power, my husband even said that it would easily force him to orgasm. The buttons are nice and large to meaning that you don’t need to concentrate to hard on what you are doing to be able to use it.

Overall this is a very powerful massage wand which is great for both massage and masturbation, I’m not so sure that it actually needs to be as powerful as it is when it is on full. I love the padding on the head of it and think that this helps to soften the vibrations without taking away any of the power from them. If you love your power and you want a wand you wouldn’t go wrong with this one. 

Review of Oriental Anal Beads from Magic Moments

These beads where sent to me to review by http://www.sextoyshopping.co.uk/ they are basic anal beads and are available for a very basic price of just £2.50 by clicking here

They come in a plain plastic tub which can be saved and used to store the beads in when they are not been used.

The beads themselves are small silver coloured and made of plastic, they are on string with a metal ring at the end to aid retrieval and prevent any loss within your body.

The string doesn’t feel like it has any kind of protective coating on it, this did worry me as cleaning the string is very important for hygiene purposes, and getting it clean again after use is not easy when the string is not coated with anything to protect it.

The beads are small in size and shouldn’t be difficult for even a complete beginner to insert with plenty of lube.

They are on a good length piece of string, keeping them nice and separate from each other.

Once they are inserted they sit just inside you and give you that slightly fuller feeling which can feel nice, always be careful when using anything anally that you keep the retrieval cord on the outside.

When removing them you can either do this slowly or quickly, the choice really is yours but doing it as you orgasm will increase the intensity of your orgasm.

Overall: I think that these are good for anyone beginning with this sort of play, they are cheap and cheerful and good basic fun, but the string makes me feel like that are more disposable then reusable due to cleaning issues.

Review of the Hello Touch by Jimmyjane from Simplypleasure

The Jimmyjane hello Touch was sent to me for review from Simplypleasure.com, it arrived in some lovely discrete packaging.

The Jimmyjane Hello Touch is packaged in a cardboard box with some lovely clear pictures of the Hello Touch and information about how it works. Inside the box you get the Touch, batteries and a storage pouch, along with some instructions.

The Hello Touch takes aaaa batteries, these are like the normal pencil batteries which you might have used for your walkman in the 80’s and 90’s or in your remote control for your television but they are much much thinner, I had never seen these sold anywhere so I did a quick google to see how much they cost and if they are widely available, they don’t cost anymore than any other pencil style battery and are available on amazon, I haven’t seen them in the local supermarket but if I am completely honest I haven’t really looked for them either.

The batteries are inserted into the body of the power pack inside a plastic case, initially we thought that the plastic case for the batteries was missing but it is infact in with the packaging in the box and not in the battery compartment when you receive the toy. As with all battery controlled toys I would advise that you remove the batteries from the vibrator when it is not in use, this preserves the battery life and also prevents any chance of the batteries leaking and damaging the toy.

Once you have put the batteries into the power pack, this slides into the wrist strap, you need to make sure that you do this with the power buttons on the top so that they line up roughly with the 3 round circles on the pocket, even though there is 3 circles there are only 2 buttons on the Touch, on and off, after we had finished playing and turned the lights off for sleep we realised that these buttons and the Jimmjane brand name on the wrist strap glows in the dark, this is cool as it makes it much easier to see what you are doing in the bedroom if you are a lights off kind of person/couple.

The wrist strap is made from microfibre it is incredibly soft and has a good amount of stretch to, it is very comfortable to wear as it is so light that you almost forget that it is there, even with the battery pack inserted into it, the wrist band is also machine washable, should you slip with the lube or anything and need to give it a wash.

 Attached to the battery back via a wire are 2 small vibrating pads which have stretchy rubber like bands which slot over the fingers to hold them in place, the pads are nice and soft and flat, and the rubber bands are good and tight, but not so tight that they cut off the circulation to your fingers or anything. These are also very light, and they have the immyjane logo embossed on the metal vibrating part inside the pads.

To use the Hello Touch, you slide the vibrating pads onto the fingers which you want to use and the wrist strap onto your wrist and then press the on button, the Touch is single speed and about medium intensity. The intensity of the vibrations are not what makes this a great toy though, its the versitility of it, having the vibrating pads firmly attached to your fingers means that you can easily use it in a variety of ways, on yourself or your partner, just let your imagination run wild, a finger and thumb make a great g-spot vibrator/massager, 2 fingers are good for clit stim, moving the pads to the back mean that you can have your partners warm fingers do the touching while the vibrations do their thing and then you can  move the vibrating pads down the fingers to use to stimulate your male partner.

Personally I really likes the feel of the finger and thumb when my partner was using it on my and the 2 fingers on there own. The pads or pods are they are described on the box are made from supersoft silicone and have a very natural feel about them when they are been used as they are so soft. As with all silicone toys I would advise against using silicone lubricant with them as it may react with the silicone and cause it to become damaged.

The Hello Touch is a lovely quiet vibrator meaning that you don’t need to worry about using it in a shared house or if you have teenage kids that might still be up when you go to bed for some fun.

When the Hello Touch is assembled and the battery compartment is sealed shut it is waterproof which means that itcan be used in the bath or the shower without any fear of it getting damaged. This is great if you like to share a shower with your partner for some fun or just like a bit of me time away from everyone else, we all know that sometimes the only room in the house where you can really be alone is the bathroom. It also makes cleaning nice and simple, as I have already said the wrist band is machine washable but as the pads obviously cannot be put in the washing machine, they can however be cleaned in warm soapy water or with some good sex toy cleaner.

Overall I really like the Hello Touch it is one of the most versatile sex toys that I have tried whether using is alone or with my partner the possibilities are endless and they are all fun, its waterproof, quiet, easy to use, easy to store even coming with its own storage pouch and generally just a fab vibrator.
