Strap On Dildo Buying Guide

Strap On Dildos are some of the most creative sex toys in the world that open an endless amount of possibility for lesbian couples as well as straight couples looking to mess around a little bit. However, a strap on dildo is much more difficult to purchase as compared to a regular dildo or some other sex toy. So, we’re going to make your life much easier by telling you all there is to know before you make the final payment. Now, let’s move on to our version of a strap on dildo buying guide…

What Are Strap On Dildos?

Basically, a strap on dildo is less of a portable dildo that is attached to a harness meant to be fastened along the waist. Usually, lesbian couples are the ones using strap ons, but some hetrosexual couples also do the same. Surprising, both the man and the woman can use a strap on.

For women, the reason is pretty obvious. They’re definitely into anal play and both partners want to try out something different. But, for men, it’s more rare but it definitely happens.

There’s a long list of strap on dildos varities, so sit tight and keep reading through them all.

Textured Dildos

Texture dildos are aim to further improve the experience and create something that’s more lifelike and feels like the real deal. A real penis has bulges and ripples on it, and dildos with such designs on them are called textured dildos. There’s no specific action that can be performed with textured dildos, they’re mostly multipurpose. There’s even strap on dildos that do the whole length and even draw vein like stuff you can see on an erect penis.

Probed Dildos

A probed dildo is more of an anal type thing and most of these types of dildo are advertised as great for newbies to start off with. These toys are shaped more like a cone and as opposed to a standard dildo, the probed shape makes it much easier for anal insertions. However, if you’re a pro that’s been doing anal stuff for a few months now, you probably won’t enjoy a probed dildo. These are specifically for starters and you won’t get the level of pleasure from this one as you would from a regular shaped dildo. This is why some strap ons come with both a probed and a regular dildo so that you don’t have to buy another toy weeks later.

Double Penetration

Double Penetration dildos are designed in such a way that there are two penises hanging off of the harness. This is meant for both anal and vaginal penetrations. The first penis is thinner and is meant for the anus. While the second dildo is slightly thicker and longer, which is meant for the vagina. Double Penetration dildos aren’t that easy to use. They require a huge amount of self control by the woman and such a bulky object highly restricts the number of positions you could use. There’s are a total of 3 or 4 positions you could use with a double penetration strap on dildo.

Rotating Strap Ons

Now these dildos are the real pro stuff. If you’ve ever thought that a standard dildo doesn’t seem so much fun anymore, step up your game and purchase something  called a rotating strap on. This dildo does exactly what the name suggests, it spins! Sometimes just the head of the penis spins, while in other dildos the entire penis-like shape turns 360 degrees. These are the heaviest and the bulkiest strap ons out there, so only get these if you really know what you’re doing. By the way, this is definitely not recommended for newbies still familiarizing themselves to the world of dildos.

Color

You can get any color you want including rainbow!  If you’re interested in black dildos check out my big black dildo guide.

Penis Extension

These strap on are used as an extension to a man’s own penis. The toy consists of a hollow end where the guy could stick his own machinery will thrusting it inside with the extended part as well. We mentioned that guys with erectile dysfunctions often use strap ons. If you wanted to know the specifics, they use these penis extensions.

The world has gotten real creative when it comes to strap on dildos, and folks have developed all types of straps to go with these different types of dildos. The one all of you are probably familiar with is the o-ring harness. An o-ring consists of a metal ring attached to the front of a leather harness and the dildo passes through this ring. Such strap ons have removable dildos too.

There’s also something called strapless strap on dildos. While this may seem like a pretty weird product, it’s actually absolutely genius. Instead of a boring harness, someone thought that it would be a better option to install another anal plug like thing that secures the strap on in place without any harness. It’ll take some time for your to learn how to use one conveniently, but once you do, you’ll enjoy it immeasurably.

One piece latex is another popular strap on dildo. In one piece latex, the dildo is build right into a full body latex suit. The foreplay you could get with these toys will be amazing. However, one small word of warning. Full body latex dildos aren’t made with too much attention to the dildo. There won’ be much of a realistic feel to these types of dildos.  If you’re after something that’s like the real deal, check out my realistic dildo guide.

If we continued on with harness types, it’ll take way too long. So, let’s just move on with the article after these three popular harness types.

RodeoH’s Lace Duo Panty

This Lace Duo Panty is a double penetration strap on. There are two 1.75 inch holes on the front. The best part about this strap on is the fact that it’s shaped like a regular panty, meaning there’s not going to be any harnesses or buckles involved. It looks sexy, but does take a bit away from the side of durability and strength. You’re not going to be able to use heavier dildos with this panty.

Pros

  • Easier to adjust for beginners
  • Might look flimsy, but holds in place pretty well

  • You’re not going to be able to use heavy and bulky dildos.

 

Realistic dildo guide

Every woman adores a decent dildo that can provide some level of pleasure in times of solitude. But, sometimes, standard dildos get boring and women want the read deal. So, if you are a woman that’s looking for the D without the man, then realistic dildos should be on your shopping cart.

Realistic dildos are pretty special stuff. They’re made specifically to imitate the exact look of a male penis. A realistic dildo has balls at the shaft along with bulging veins at the side to perfectly mimic the feel of a penis when inside. Oh, you thought that was it? Fortunately for us women, there are dildos molded from the penises of famous pornstars. So you could literally understand what it’s like to have sex with Johnny Sins. Well, sort of…

Anyways, getting over the jokes, this post is going to be all about realistic dildos. As the title suggests, it’s mainly going to be a buyer’s guide explaining how you can choose a great dildo suited to your needs. So, let’s jump right into it.

Types of Realistic Dildos

Realistic dildos aren’t really something that can be categorized but we’ll try our best. Here are a few ‘types’ of realistic dildos.

Glass Dildos

Want a guy that stays rock hard for hours on end? Well, it’s not a man that you’re looking for, it’s a glass dildo.

Basically, the hardest dildo you’re ever going to find will be made out of glass. Sure, metal is a better alternative but the material is too cold and sometimes feels uncomfortable inside. On the other hand, glass is much more comfortable and a few minutes inside is all it takes to change temperature. Beware though, glass dildos are tough to make and might be more expensive than your standard rubber dildos.

Inflatable Dildos

Inflatable dildos are truly a formidable opponent for even the most experienced women. They so great, that some women would even prefer these bad boys over the real bad boys. Inflatable dildos snugly fit inside any woman and allow a woman to massage all four walls of the vagina. This offers an orgasm that even a real penis fails to beat sometimes.

The possibilities with inflatable dildos are just endless. Some women even like putting a cock ring on this dildo as it further increases the expansion and creates room for more of a hands on experience. However, if you’re a novice to dildos, it’s probably a good decision to step away from this beast as it’ll probably be more than you’re used to handling.

Double Dildo

A double dildo, as the name suggests, is an extended version of the standard dildo, but it has double penis heads on both ends. This allows for simultaneous play with two different vaginas. These dildos are pretty lengthy, ranging from 12-18 inches in size.

Double dildos are primarily used by lesbian couples. There’s a pretty large list of positions two women could use a double dildo together in. But, some women also use it on their own. The size and build of double dildos are something completely different as compared to other types of dildos. So, using it solo also has its own pleasure.

Ejaculating Dildos

Now, this dildo is for the kinky reading this that are not afraid to get down and dirty when it comes to solo plays. If you’re going for a realistic feel, why not go the full stretch and get the ejaculation part as well?

Ejaculating dildos have a small reservoir that can fill in a semen-like liquid in them which is normally sufficient for three ejaculations. There’s usually a button of something similar that sends the liquid shooting up whenever you want.

The best recipe for the fluid is yogurt diluted with water. It seems a bit disgusting, but it’s okay since the yogurt makes the ‘semen’ edible.

Things You Should Consider Before Buying One

Material

The material is crucial every time you’re buying a sex toy. There’s not really a material that we can say is the best one out there, this is more of a preference-based thing. If you’re more into something soft or flexible, silicone, PVC or some other softer material might be a decent choice for you. If you like harder and more rigid stuff, glass and metal are the best option.

If you’re new to sex toys and don’t know which one to buy, just keep experimenting. You’ll definitely find a material that’ll just feel comfy inside.

Size

Ladies, always remember, size matters. This is another thing that comes down to how you like your sex toys. If you’re still new to sex toys and don’t want a dildo penetrating too deep, then a smaller dildo with an even smaller girth is best for you. If this isn’t your first rodeo, go ahead and buy something up to 12 inches and let it go all in. If you’ve gotten bored of this size too, there’s inflatable dildos that might be right up your alley.

Versatility

Your primary concern should be to purchase toys that can be used in multiple ways. If you’re more of a collection type of girl, by all means, go for as many toys as you can find. But, if you’re looking to stay in the limits of a budget, look for toys that can offer the possibility of a variety of different plays. For instance, is the toy you’re thinking of purchasing good for both anal and vaginal play? Can it be attached to a harness and used as a strap on? Does it vibrate? Can it be used in couple’s play? Make sure the product you buy answers most of these questions with a yes.

Color

Color is so important, depending on what you want, some may want a white one, others a brown or black dildo.  If the color doesn’t look natural then it won’t be a realistic dildo.

The Best Realistic Dildos In the Market

Still can’t seem to finalize the dildo you want? We’re going to make the choice even more easier. Here’s a list of a few dildos that are currently the top selling products in the world. You’ll definitely love one of them.

Real Cock 2 – The Real Doll Dildo

The Real Cock 2 is as real as a dildo can get. These bad boys are EXPENSIVE, and when we say expensive, we mean $500! Yes, you’re going to be spending $500, but rest assured, the product is well worth it. This is a product from Abyss Creations which, as some of you might know, is a top tier toy producer.

The best part of this toy is the feel of the skin, the shaft, the head and the testicles. It’s just so lifelike and so flexible but not too jelly-like. There’s a certain resistance to the product as well that makes it a well-rounded product.

The platinum-cured silicone is so easy to clean and is pretty durable too.  Overall, this is the most realistic dildo you’re ever going to find.

Doc Johnson 12-inch Realistic Dildo

The Doc Johnson Realistic Dildo is a great realistic dildo which is also on the cheaper side of things. It might feel a bit difficult to insert the first time around, but once you get it inside, it will feel incredible. It’s rigid, but not tough enough to hurt you. And, it’s big size is the best feature. This dildo is exactly 12-inches in length, that’s right, 12 INCHES. If you’re a woman that isn’t playing around, go for the Doc Johnson 12 inch dildo.

LoveHoney Basics 7 Inch Realistic Dildo

The first two options are pretty expensive, so we thought we’d mention something that more in everyone’s alley. This dildo from Love Honey is the ultimate product for folks that don’t want to spend more than a week’s pay on their sexual activities.

LoveHoney Basics 7 Inch Realistic Dildo
LoveHoney Basics 7 Inch Realistic Dildo

The Love Honey Basics if made of high quality PVC, which looks and feels way more real than any other PVC dildo. But, the real X factor is the girth of this dildo. It might look thick in the picture, but it’s enormously fat when you hold it in your hand. The girth will literally move you to your core and it even proves out to be a formidable toy for pros. You’re going to need a decent amount of lube to get it in there and once you get used to the feeling, we’re pretty sure it’s going to ruin sex for you because you’re probably not going to find a penis as thick as this one.

Anyways, we definitely don’t recommend this for newcomers. It’s too gigantic for you to handle, so if you’re a newbie, look for something more subtle. Once you’re experienced with sex toys, you can move on to this product. But, if you’re tired of those boring, thin dildos, this will definitely be able to make you happy.

 

Icicles No. 18 Textured Glass double dildo.

20140419_123044

Icicles is a range of dildos from Pipedream Products; these dildos are non-porous and body safe. I am a huge fan of glass dildos; everything about them excites me. From their breath taking design, their rigid yet delicate feel to how they feel massaging my body and being inserted inside for mind blowing orgasms.

So today I’m looking at the Icicles No. 18 Textured Glass double dildo.

The packaging

As with all the Icicles range they come securely packed in a lovely windowed box. The box itself displays a picture of the dildo on the front, almost teasing you to open the ‘window’ and peek inside. And then you do, and once you’ve looked at the dildo resting beyond that window all you can think about it rubbing it against your skin, massaging your tender places and then fucking yourself until you reach that Blissfully Orgasmic state. (It can’t only be me that feels that way right?!)

How it looks

This dildo is beautiful, with its two ends one with the duel bulbous design stunningly displaying a flower design; and the tulip end which is tampered for easy insertion. And then there’s the shaft, curved perfectly for G-spot pleasure; as if that wasn’t enough the shaft itself designed for sensory bliss with its raised blue nodules.

20140419_123035

The flower bauble has a circumference of 4.75 inches, whilst the other is slightly bigger at 5 inches. The shaft itself is 3 inches on the inside of the curve and 3.75 on the outside of the curve. The nodules on the shaft are quite defined with a raised point of 3mm. the tulip has a length of 2 inches and a circumference of 4.9 inches.

20140419_123052

Maintaining

A huge benefit of glass dildos beyond how they feel is how easy they are to maintain. Cleaning your dildo couldn’t be easier you can rinse it, wash it or even put it in the dishwasher.

Glass dildos if maintained properly can last a life time, they’re easy to clean; can be used with any kind of lube and are fantastic instruments for temperature play. For more information on temperature play or the benefits of glass dildos check out my Why Glass? guide.

As seems to be the case with all Icicles items a storage bag isn’t included, which really is a shame. So if you don’t want to keep your item in the box than I suggest you purchase a storage bag separately.

20140419_123108

My Opinions

I was in two minds with the Icicles 18. This is because some days I loved it; I could feel every texture as it slides in and out and other days the nodules on the shaft are just too much to take.

The duel bulbous end is by far the best end for me, as the tulip end even with the tampered tip feels like it’s poking me. The first bulb glides in easily and the slight increase in size on the second bulb feels amazing as it effortlessly slides its way and fills me with ease.

I’ve realised to use this toy I need to be either incredibly turned on so that I can naturally produce enough lubricant so the nodules on the shaft don’t hurt. Or I have to use a lot of lubricant on the shaft so the nodules slide in with more ease and less pain.

I’ve found that to be able to use this dildo to its full potential I have to ‘warm up’ first, and then use this to have a mind blowing finish.

I’ve never had to use lubricant on a glass toy before (Unless it was coated in silicone) usually they just slide on in and feel amazing. With the Icicles 18 if I didn’t use the lubricant on the shaft it irritated me, the nodules are quite defined so you feel every single one. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing because once enough lubricant is used it does feel fantastic and sends you into stimulation over drive whilst the bulbs massage your G-spot.

The dildo also makes a great body massager; those nodules being rolled into your body feel amazing. So it could be used in an erotic massage to tease your partner before using it on them.

Bottom line; I do like the Icicles 18 it does look stunning and can feel amazing when used correctly. If used without lube it will feel uncomfortable and just hurt; but with enough lube you can really feel everything this dildo has to offer and it offers a lot.

Icicles No. 17 Glass G-Spot Curved Wand

20140514_101911

And here we are again with yet another gorgeous glass dildo from Pipedream Products Icicles range; and this dildo really is a thing of beauty from the spherical tip displaying a lovely yellow flower seemingly within to the deep blue stem curved stem like shaft, it truly is a work of art.

The Packaging:

As with the rest of the Icicles range this dildo comes presented in a lovely windowed box, securely packaged to keep your item well protected during transit; you could also keep this box for storing your dildo.

pd2917-00

The Icicles No.17 doesn’t come supplied with its own protective bag, which I have to say is the only annoying thing about this range. OK yes, you can just pick them up for a couple of pounds; but I do really think they should be supplied with the item. If you’re anything like me I don’t tend to keep the packages for items they take up far too much room and a protective storage bag included would make a really nice addition.

How it looks:

As mentioned earlier this dildo really does look amazing; the deep blue curved shaft and the yellow flower detail within the clear spherical tip makes it such beauty to look at it, in my opinion it in no way resembles a dildo and in fact looks more like a glass ornament you’d find displayed in the home. You are able to display this if you wish as it does come with a flat base making it perfect for standing up. (This picture was taken on an uneven surface. It does actually stand up on it’s own on a flat surface)

20140514_102013

The rounded tip has a circumference of 5 inches making it the girthiest part of the dido. And the shaft itself has a fixed circumference from top to bottom of 3.2 inches which is quite slender for what I generally like. The overall insertable length is 7.5 inches. The shaft is curved making it ideal for G-spot stimulation.

20140514_102025

Cleaning and Lubrications:

For all information on maintaining, what lubrications to use and also details on temperature play then take a look at my Why Glass? page.

My Opinion:

I really like this dildo, the curved shaft is fantastic for G-spot stimulation and the rounded tip glides itself in and massages your G-spot with ease.

You then have the added bonus of how it looks; and it really does look beautiful; the colours really go well together and are strikingly bold. I’ve noticed with some glass dildos that when you purchase them online the colours look amazing but when you get them home the colours are barely visible unless you hold them up in the light, this has never been the case with any of the glass dildos I’ve purchased from the Icicles range.

20140514_102106

I wasn’t really sure if I’d like this dildo, I mean it looks stunning but it’s so smooth; I usually like my dildos with a little bit of texture, and a bit more girth. However I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to orgasm with this and how much I do actually like it. It hasn’t however knocked my Icicles 12 from my favourite glass dildo spot (I’m getting doubtful anything ever will now) however it does feel great and makes a nice change.

The packaging

This stunning stainless steel masterpiece comes elegantly presented in a luxurious satin-lined hinged box, making this an ideal present for someone or even yourself. Included in the box is a booklet which gives details on how to maintain your njoy, clean it and other items included in within the njoy range

Within the box
Within the box – Nice!

 

How it looks

The njoy pure wand is crafted from pure, hypoallergenic, medical grade stainless steel which will never corrode or degrade, it is hand polished giving it a beautiful shine.

It comprises of two bulbous ends of different sizes the smallest end being 3.1 inches in circumference and the largest 4.75 inches. These ends are connected by a glorious curved shaft making this the ideal toy for G spot stimulation. It has a total length of 9 inches, with an insertable length of 8 inches.

Due to the material being stainless steel it has an approximate weight of 1.5lbs (680g)

Cleaning

For simple every day cleaning then use warm water and soap using a dry cloth to dry and polish it after to keep it shining. You can also sterilize it in boiling water.

Refrain from cleaning you’re your toy with an abrasive cleaner or a pad, this really is the only thing that will damage your toy.

Lubricants

This wand is compatible with all lubricants. Since the dildo is smooth, you will find that a little lubricant does wonders. You do only need a small amount, using too much would make it incredibly slippery.

Temperature Play

Toys like this are perfect for temperature play, why not send your senses in over drive and add that a little bit more excitement to your solo or duel play.

To heat up simply hold the dildo under the warm tap, or submerse it in warm water. And to cool down again just hold under the cold tap or again submerse in cold water.

For added fun in the bedroom why not have a jug of both warm and cold water and try both.

Do not put your wand in the freezer; this could really hurt you as freezing items put on warm moist items tend to stick – Ouch!

And as with the freezer do not put it in the microwave either!

My Opinions

Ok, so I’ve lusted after a stainless steel dildo for so long I wanted one so badly, nay I needed one. It became a must have essential item, and as any essential item I sought after it.

This is where disappointment struck; the ones I acquired gave the reaction of ‘Meh?’ so after a while I stopped wanting one, I no longer needed it. I was ruined by cheap imitations; ones that just poked my cervix or left me feeling rather unsatisfied.

I wanted, I acquired, they were tried and tested and left me feeling rather melancholy about the whole experience.

And then this beauty found its way to me. I was dubious, who wouldn’t be? I’ve tried so many others and they failed and well I’d rather have glass. I pushed my pessimistic thoughts aside and took the plunge and gave it a go.

Its times like this that make me thank the creator for blessing me with a vagina. A vagina that felt everything this pure wand had to offer, and I was offered a lot. I was sent to blissful orgasmic ecstasy and then back again desiring more. And that was OK I could have more, because not only did the creator bless me with a vagina, it blessed me with the ability to have multiple orgasms, and in this moment I’d never loved the creator more.

The Njoy wand gave me everything I’d wanted in a metal dildo, everything I’d lusted after.

The curved shaft was perfect; it effortlessly directed the weighty bulbous end to my G spot. The weight inside me felt breathtakingly amazing and making me feel fuller, whilst the orgasm made my body spasm and my toes curl.

And then I was converted, it wasn’t that stainless steel didn’t create fantastic dildos, it was that I purchased the wrong ones.

It was clear then that njoy stainless steel dildos were far superior to others on the market. Everything about them made them perfect from the packing, the way it was displayed to how the weight was evenly distributed throughout the wand making it the perfect pleasure giver.

If you’ve scoured for a metal dildo and came up short, or if you’re looking for one but are questioning the high price tag on the item – Don’t. Spend a little extra on quality, something that is going to last you a life time; this dildo is worth every penny.

Review of the Clone a Willy Candle Kit

I was lucky enough to be sent a clone a willy candle kit to review from the clone a willy people, these can be found here. We were both really quite excited about trying one of these kit, it wasn’t something that we had tried before and the thought of been able to make a candle out of his erect penis sounded like a lot of fun.

It arrived very quickly in some super discrete packaging, well packaged in bubble wrap to prevent the tube getting damaged, this is particularly important as the tube that the kit comes in is also the tube that you use for casting your penis candle in.

It came with some supplementary instructions, I cannot stress enough how important it is to read the instructions 2 or 3 times before you even start, knowing what it is that you are doing is key to getting this right, and as you only get enough moulding power and wax for one try you need to make sure you get it right.

We opened the tube carefully, the tube itself is made from pretty good quality plastic so its unlikely that you will damage it when you open it, and we removed the kit from inside it. This is what was included in this kit:-

 

On the reverse of the lining of the tube are more clear instructions, we both took the time to read these 2 or 3 times before we started, I must stress again that it is important to read the instructions as the key to getting it right is making sure you follow them and you get it right.

So poured the powder into a bowl and used the thermometer which is included in the kit to measure out exactly 425ml of water at exactly 37C, this I found really tricky. We have a mixer tap so we thought that it would be pretty easy but it wasn’t; it took quite a bit of fiddling with the taps to get it to just the right temperature. In the mean time my other half was trying to get and stay hard, as you can imagine it was quite a surreal experience for the both of us!

 

Once I managed to get the water to the correct temperature and the other half was ready, I started the timer for 2mins. In the instructions it says to start the timer before pouring the water onto the powder, and then to mix the water with a wooden spoon like crazy until it started to look like pancake mix; it really does thicken up quickly so it is important to work as quickly as possible.

I poured the mixture into the tube that the other half had trimmed to the required length and then he placed the tube full of the gooey mixture over his erect penis and held it there whilst it set. After about 30 seconds I asked him how the gel feels and his answer was ‘squishy, strange and cold!’.

He said that the gel started off feeling warm, as the water used is body temperature, but it very quickly started to go cold and by the time the gel had solidified which only took a matter of a couple minutes it was feeling very cold indeed.

Now it does state in the instructions that it doesn’t matter if your penis doesn’t remain hard for the whole of the casting process so long as it is initially hard there will be enough time to be able to take a clear accurate cast of your penis, this is good as my other half felt that the gel became to cold for any man to be able to maintain an erection for the time that it takes.

Once the gel had set we removed the mould from his penis, it slid off really easily and didn’t stick at all, there was no pain involved in the removing of the gel cast, and even where it had got stuck to any hairs it was easily and painlessly removed.

Once the mould is made you need to use the wooded skewer to make a hole in the bottom and push the wick through. In the instructions it says to put it through where the urethra is but it is quite difficult to work out just where that is, and it is sort if guess work.

After that you use the skewer to attach the wick to over the base of the mould so keep it in the centre of the candle.

Then we started to melt the wax, in the instructions it says to microwave it for 4.5mins, we found that it took a lot longer than that, we took it out repeatedly and checked it but it took 10-12 mins to fully melt, obviously this will depend very much on your microwave just how long it will take.

I made a mistake with this, I melted it in a bowl and then tried to pour it into the mould, it just ran down the side of the bowl and onto my fingers, and when it says in the instructions that it is hot, they don’t lie it is very hot when it comes out of the microwave! So you need to be very careful. I transferred the wax into a glass jug and poured it into the mould with that. I would advise you to do the same and not be a fool like me and try a bowl.

Once I had filled the mould with the hot wax I left it to set for a couple of hours, the wax does shrink a little bit and after the 2 hours I remelted the remaining wax and top it up, we found that the shrinkage was very small and only a small amount of wax was needed to do this.

Then I needed to clean up everything while it was setting, the bowl and jug that had the wax in were not that easy to clean, obviously you can’t put it down your drain as it won’t stay liquid and wax will make a very good plug in your pipes to block them, we poured the wax out while it was still melted straight into out outside bin, and then used red hot water and a scourer to get the wax off the bowls and a plastic scraper to get it off the kitchen worktops. The gel is much easier to clean up – it literally just peals off. Don’t be tempted to leave the wax in the bowl/jug before cleaning, you won’t get it off and you will loose your container.

Once we had done all of this we removed the candle from the mould and this was the result, its not perfect, but we didn’t really expect that it would be as we hadn’t tried it before, although its pretty damn close and we are really pleased with it.

Overall: We both thought that this was really good fun, we loved doing it and had a real giggle trying to get it right, the instructions are really clear, the kit has everything that you need including a thermometer and we were both really pleased with the results although not perfect, we would love to try another one of these kits just because we would love to try and get it perfect.

Review of the Tantus Echo Silicone Vibrating Dildo

I was contacted by VibrationsDirect and asked to review the Tantus Echo Vibrating Silicone Dildo, this is a Dildo that I have had on my wishlist for a long time and therefore I jumped at the opportunity. It arrived in some lovely discrete packaging and unlike most of my review items which I tend to leave until I am ready to review them before testing them out, this one was straight out of the clear plastic box which it was in.

Inside the box in some plastic moulded packaging is the dildo, this is the white version but the Echo dildo is available in other colours and a Tantus branded bullet vibrator, this bullet is more or less the same as the rocks off vibrators of the same size. It takes an N battery to it has some power to it unlike other bullet vibrators which take the cell type batteries and not only lack power but only last a short time before the batteries need to be replaced.

The bullet slots into a hole in the base of the dildo, the dildo can be used with or without the vibrator inserted into the base and the base is flat and round enough to be suitable for use with a strap on or anally without any fear of it getting stuck or lost anywhere that you might not want.

The bullet is a very tight fit in the base, you need to really push it to get it in the dildo, I used a bit of waterbased lube to help it slip in there, once it is in you can turn it on and off by using the single button on the base of the vibe, the bullet is single speed the speed that it has is pretty powerful and the vibrations transfer through the silicone very well, better than other toys that I have tried which are of  a similar design, I guess that this is due to how tightly the vibrator fits into the dildo and the added power of having N batteries rather than cells. The tightness of the fit of the bullet also means that it is a bit tricky to get it out again, but with a bit of patience and some gentle (or not so gentle) persuasion it will come out again.

The dildo is made from 100% medical grade silicone and is totally body safe, it is waterproof and submergable, you can use it in the bath or the shower and wash it in the dishwasher, in boiling water, in a bowl of soapy water or with some good quality sex toy cleaner, so no excuses for not having a clean toy here. The Tantus Echo is not suitable for use with silicone lubricants as it is made from silicone and it can react with it and cause it to become damaged or misshapen.

The Tantus Echo had caught my eye because of the unusual ribbed effect on the top of it, the ridges are far apart enough and deep enough to feel amazing when it is been used, I was right to have this on my wish list for so long, the ribbed effect is very effective and like all of Tantus’ Dildos the silicone is lovely and smooth and has some flex in it, meaning that you can be a little rougher with it than you might otherwise have been if it had been made from glass or some other firmer material.

Overall I am really pleased that I got to review this Vibrating Dildo set from Vibrations Direct, the size and shape of it worked really well with my body, feeling amazing and leaving me shaking all over, the silicone is really good quality, the vibrator is nice and quiet and the grooves are just lush. I like how easy it is to clean and how it can be used with or without the vibrator inserted and it has a good flared base which makes it safe for anal use to.

Review of the Tantus Alumina Flow Dildo

This is the Tantus Alumina Flow Dildo and it was sent to me as a competition prize from Sextoys.co.uk. when I found out that I had won this dildo I was very very excited, I don’t have many metal toys and the shape and size of this dildo looked just perfect.

The Tantus Alumina Flow Dildo comes in a luxurious looking box with just a silver outline of the dildo on the lid and the name of the dildo, no tacky half naked women with this one, it looks like it is a good quality toy right from the outset. When you take the lid off the box the dildo is in a foam cut out to stop it from rattling around and getting damaged, the box is very well designed and can be used to store the dildo in when it is not been used.

The Tantus Alumina Flow Dildo is made from lovely shiny purple metal and metal has some great properties for keeping heat and can be warmed up in warm water or cooled down in cool water or the fridge, I found that the dildo gfelt cold without having to cool it down before use, any colder would be to cold for me, but if you like it really cold try popping it in the fridge for half an hour before use.

The Tantus Alumina Flow Dildo is suitable for use with all lubricants as it is made from metal you can also submerge it as it is waterproof and use it in the bath or shower. This also makes it super easy to clean you can clean it in hot soapy water, a dishwasher, in boiling water or with a good quality sex toy cleaner which is available from the majority of online sex toy stores.

The Dildo has two different sized ends that can be used for play, there is the large bulbous end and the slimmer end, to me the slimmer end feels more like a handle but it can be used for penetration if you prefer a slimmer dildo. The dildo also unscrews in the centre, I initially thought that I might have damaged it by unscrewing it but after reading about the dildo online I saw that this is deliberate as you can buy other toys from the range and interchange different pats of different dildo’s to make a variety of toys.

The Tantus Dildo feels quite substantial in the hand, even though its not a huge dildo this is down to its weight, it is made from metal so it is not a light toy, not exactly back breakingly heavy but it does have some weight to it, I actually like the feel of a heavier toy when I am using it, for some reason it just seems to feel better.

The Tantus Dildo is completely smooth and whereas some people might prefer something with a bit more texture to it, I liked the feel of it, the shape and sizes of the bulbous end did feel good when been pressed against the g-spot, I did find that the dildo was very solid though and unforgiving, meaning that my partner had to be careful not to be to rough with it by accident. This is something that you should always think about when you use a solid metal or glass dildo on a partner.

Overall I really like the look and feel of this dildo, its lovely and smooth and solid and has a real quality feel about it, I like that it is interchangeable with other toys in the range and can’t wait to try some more so that I can check this out for myself. Been able to use all lubes with it is great, and it is really easy to clean, but personally I would avoid using it for anal as it doesn’t have a flared base and accidents can happen. 

Review of Don Wands Swirled Blue Glass Dildo

When I ordered this from the US I was expecting it to take some time to get here since I live in the UK, but it surprised me when it arrived pretty quick, within a couple of weeks of ordering it. I did have to pay duty on this to bring it into the country, I was expecting to have to do this so I wasn’t surprised when I got a note through from parcelforce asking me to pay a small amount online to them before the parcel would be released.

It is quite normal for you to have to pay some charges when ordering something from outside of the UK, the charges can be quite high depending on the object and its value and Parcelforce very kindly also add on a handling fee. Eden fantasys are nothing to do with these charges and you cannot pay them in advance so don’t be surprised if you receive a notice when you order from the US.

When the glass dildo arrived it was in a plain box with the normal customs sticker on it, stating that it contained a massager, I am pretty sure that the postal service know what massager is code for but I have never let that worry me when ordering from a company, they have to put something and at least it doesn’t say DILDO in big letters on the box, the inside of the box was very well packaged and my Don Wand Glass Dildo had made it all the way across the Atlantic without a single scratch.

The Don Wand Glass Dildo comes in some stylish packaging, just a grey box with the companies branding on it and some clear information about the dildo including how to clean it.

Cleaning a glass dildo is so easy as glass is non porous and doesn’t react with other materials this dildo can be washed in the sink with some anti bacterial cleaner, with any sex toy cleaner or even in the dishwasher. It really couldn’t be simpler.

This dildo looks stunning, it has a clear glass bulbous end and a lovely tight blue swirl which runs all of the way down it, the blue swirl is ridged and feels lovely in the hand.

 

The glass is lovely and smooth and there aren’t any annoying seams anywhere on this dildo, it has a nice flared base which make it super easy to hold when it is been used.

 

As this dildo is made out of glass it can be used with any lubricant of your choice, it can also be warmed up easily in warm water or cooled down in a fridge or if your feeling particularly hot the freezer. The tempered glass that this toy is made from is chip and shatter proof and completely safe to be used without any worry of it breaking, this doesn’t mean that you can  go juggling it outside without worry but you really can be quite rough with this dildo while you are using it without having to worry about it breaking or chipping.

That said, I still think that it is advisable to check your glass toys regularly for chips and marks to ensure that there are no sharp edges.

The tight blue swirls on this dildo really do feel good against the g-spot when it is been used. I really liked it when my partner twisted the dildo in the opposite direction to the swirls as he used it on me. We also tried this dildo anally and found that it is a very good anal toy as well, the bulbous end means that you can use it for double penetration without any worry that it might slip out while your busy elsewhere. It is lovely and solid and gives a great full feeling.

The overall length of this Dildo is 7.5 Inches, with the majority of this being insertable (7 inches) it has a nice circumference of 4 3/4 inches and a Diametre of 1 1/2 inches, it has a good weight, it weighs in at 1lb, which is enough to make it feel solid in your hand without it making you feel like it is too heavy.
For me the size of this Dildo is just perfect, although I do like the larger toys, this was great for sex and play with my partner and on my own.

Glass is a very firm material and this should be taken into account when you are playing with it, don’t be to rough with your partner, glass doesn’t have any give in it at all and if you are to rough you may cause bruising, which isn’t any fun for anyone.

Overall: I really like this glass dildo from Don Wands, It looks like a piece of art its so pretty, the way that the light reflects off it really is stunning, the ridges feel really good and its great for Vaginal or Anal play making it a great all round toy. 

Review of Vibe Therapy Double Ended Silicone Dildo/Dong

This silicone double ended dildo was sent to me by tempedtotouch.co.uk for review, it arrived quickly and  in some lovely discrete packaging.

I opened the package to see double ended dildo in a box with see through panels, the box is well designed, simple without any nasty pics of half naked women which always put me off.
On the back of the box is a basic description of the toy and a clear picture of the dildo with the measurements of the dildo on it.

The dildo itself is 34cm in length and pretty thick to at 4.5cm, it has a spiral effect on it which when it is been used feel great against the G-spot.

 

This is not 100% flexible but  it does bend. It has a soft kind of slightly hollow feeling to it, the central part  feels like it has  a solid plastic tube inside it which means that when you bend it it creases around this. Due to this if you wanted to use this for double penetration for solo use you cannot do this, it just doesn’t bend enough for that.

This picture shows it at about is maximum bend, I wouldn’t want to risk bending it any further as it starts to crease and I would worry about damaging it.
The dildo is made out of 100% medical grade silicone and it is waterproof as it has no electrical parts in it, this means that it can be used in the bath or shower and that it is super easy to clean to. It also means that you should avoid storing it with other silicone toys or using it with silicone based lubricants as they could react with it and cause it to melt and become misshapen.
I used this as a double ended dildo with my Oh and even though he is male we both found it very enjoyable. It is something that as a couple adds something to sex that we were surprised to say that we both enjoyed, the length of the dildo is just about right for two people to be able to use it and the flexibility is right for this to. Its not so soft that it makes it difficult to use but it is not so firm that it feels uncomfortable.Overall: we really like this double dong, it is nice and thick but not huge, it has a nice firmness about it, its flexible enough for dual play but not flexible enough for solo Double penetration play. Its nice and easy to clean and the packaging is good and clean.
