Review: Ophoria Rapture No. 5

I’ve had the Ophoria Rapture No. 5 for a while now and, honestly, I don’t have a lot to say about it. It’s really a case of form follows function, in a good way. It didn’t “wow” me. It doesn’t have any fancy features that have never been seen before, it doesn’t go above and beyond the call of duty, it’s just well-made, does what it’s supposed to do and does it well, and is fairly decently priced for a top-quality silicone toy.

Rapture No. 5 is made of completely body-safe platinum silicone01, Ophoria’s own blend. It’s fairly silky with minimal finger-drag and pleasing to touch. It’s quite hard for silicone, with little give when you squeeze it. It’s made especially for anal use but can be used vaginally as well, and works well for both. I would say it is better anally, but I love graduated bulbs on anal toys since it goes along so well with the way that the anal muscles work. Makes sense, since it’s basically a dildo version of a set of anal beads.

It’s about average length and a little over average thickness at it’s thickest, but the first bulb starts at half of the thickness of the last. I would say most of the time I use it I don’t put it all the way in, preferring to gently thrust with it over inserting it and leaving it there since it doesn’t have a decent neck on it. It’s definitely made for thrusting.

One thing that does bring it above most other anal toys like it is the handle. Sported by the Beyond No. 3 also made by Ophoria, Njoy Pfun Plug, LELO Bob, and the LELO Insignia line, among others, the cut-out handle is becoming somewhat popular, especially among luxury toy makers. It is a wonderful feature, and I highly recommend this type of handle on a toy to many others, unless you’re specifically looking for a harness-compatible product. This style of handle makes toys easier to grip and maneuver overall, making them great products to own.

The Rapture No. 5 reminds me a lot of the Pleasure No. 6 in that they’re both average toys made of quality silicone and decently priced. They’re solidly made, pleasing to the eye, and does the job they’re made to do. I simply have no bad words to say about them.

Luckily not every toy needs a “wow” factor. In fact many of the fancy new tech savvy toys that are out there are expensive and don’t do all that they should, making the solidly good toys that much better than those that fluctuate between awesome features and little performance. Plus, Ophoria toys are pretty, if not wowomgawesome.

Much thanks to Ophoria for sending me their Rapture No. 5 to review!

Review: Ophoria Pleasure No. 6

The best thing about the Pleasure No. 6 is that it can be used to turn anyone into The Dildo Unicorn! By which I mean it has a suction cup that will stick to just about anything, foreheads included. It’s really quite awesome. I’ve stuck it on the wall, various bookshelves, my laptop, tables, chairs, the microwave, shower walls, the base of other sex toys, and numerous foreheads. It really can stick to just about anything.

The benefit of a suction cup base seems pretty obvious in a dildo: you can stick it to something and get some hands-free thrusting. It’s especially wonderful for those of us who aren’t exactly skinny or flexible, just stick it somewhere easily accessible and ride until you’re tired. Or use it with a partner to simulate a threesome without the lengthy interview process.

Sensation-wise it’s pretty basic. It’s a very average sized dildo that has no curve to it whatsoever so it’s not great at hitting the g-spot, though it can be angled that way with a bit of intention. Even with its average size and shape it’s paradoxically quite gorgeously designed with two beautiful flourishes on either side of it and semi-realistic looking with the bulbous head.

The only thing that I don’t understand about the Pleasure No. 6 is the little bump right beneath the head, you can see it on the left side in the image above. It doesn’t really seem to have any sort of purpose as it’s too small to really feel while inserted. The best I can surmise is that an Ophoria stylistic mark since the Beyond No. 3 has a similar bump near the base that also serves no purpose.

The silicone itself is only semi-pliable: definitely bendable but not very squishy at all. Its semi-hard texture helps the average size still be satisfying for those of us who love larger toys. I was actually surprised with how much I enjoy this toy, I knew I would enjoy the aesthetics of it, but I wasn’t sure how much the operation would thrill me, but it really does, especially for being a fairly standard dildo.

Being fairly standard in looks aside from the small flourishes which Ophoria has added makes the Pleasure No. 6 great for those new to sex toys while the performance will impress those well-versed. Much thanks to Ophoria for sending me their Pleasure No. 6 to review!

Review: njoy Eleven [Heavy Metal Week]

Oh, the njoy Eleven. I’ve lusted after it for so long, had dreams about it, and ached to be able to use it instead of just fondling it in stores. All the anticipation I felt first wanting and then waiting to receive Eleven just made it that much sweeter when it did arrive.

When Eleven first arrived at my door I was ecstatic and didn’t allow it to leave my side for at least 24 hours. Literally. I took it to dinner with me that night, actually, to show off to a friend of mine. The wonderful people at njoy also sent along some of their stickers, pins, and post cards in addition to Eleven and it’s luxurious carrying case.

Eleven doesn’t come in a fancy wooden box like other njoy products it actually has a leather carrying case, about four inches tall and twelve inches wide that has a magnetic closure at the top and handles so that you can carry Eleven around with you wherever you go. No one will know it’s not just a clutch purse unless they look inside of it.

Eleven is by no means small. It is a toy for advanced users. It’s ridiculously large and heavy. Being made out of the rock solid stainless steel that it is makes it feel even larger inside of you than softer toys, and the weight of it makes it feel larger than other rock solid toys made. It’s completely delightful. As mentioned many times in this Heavy Metal Week by nature of being metal Eleven is wonderful for temperature play. I especially enjoy the coolness of room temperature that it seems to default to while stored.

Unfortunately, my enjoyment of Eleven is confined to when it is used on me rather than using it on myself. It’s just not that great as a solo toy since it is so large and heavy. It’s also shaped inconveniently. Unlike the Pure Wand which is easy to grasp on to while it is inserted due to it’s U-like shape Eleven is S-shaped. When it is inserted with the curve pointing up toward my belly (to hit the g-spot) in order to angle it against the right spot I have to press down on it rather than up. Often this will result it in hitting the bed or it moving further than I can reach beneath me01, and just seems like too much work to get it to work well.

With Onyx controlling it, however, he can angle it in just the right way and I have had amazing orgasms and squirt every time he uses it on me. I’ve been blown away every time we’ve used it. The size and angles are just right and easy for him to get, I just wish it worked so good solo too. I do enjoy it solo when I simply insert it and then focus on my clit, rather than trying to thrust and/or stimulate my g-spot. It’s extremely pleasurable just to clench around while it is inserted and I love the size and strength02 of it.

We’ve tried to use the small end on me anally, but I’m not quite ready for it yet. It definitely needs lots of lube, lots of patience, and lots of preparation before hand for it to feel pleasurable. It’s definitely for advanced anal experts. I can imagine it will be absolutely amazing anally once I am able to experience it that way, but unfortunately I’m not quite there yet.

Even with it’s unfortunate solo experience my test of a toy like Eleven is whether or not I would choose to purchase it for myself should anything ever happen to it. Though I doubt it would ever be stolen since it would make such a great weapon, and the stainless steel won’t really be able to break or rust or anything like that, so I suppose the only way for something to happen to it would be to lose it. The answer to the question, though, is an unequivocal yes. It’s expensive, but it’s worth it!

SO much thanks to njoy and Sh! Women’s Erotic Emporium for sending me the Eleven to review!

Review: njoy Pure Wand [Heavy Metal Week]

The njoy Pure Wand is, frankly, amazing, and I think everyone with a g-spot or p-spot should own one. Need more? It’s beautifully crafted and angled perfectly to hit just the right spot in just about anyone. I don’t think I’ve read a review of it that said differently. For me the use of it is pretty much a guarantee that I’m going to squirt, and I know it works the same way for others as well. Normally I say that every toy works differently for every person, and while that’s true with the Pure Wand I also think it will find the right place on everyone.

Now, I did have a bit of a learning curve (no pun intended) with the Pure Wand (PW). Instead of the usual thrusting that I can do with other g-spot specific toys I have to rock or jostle the PW against my g-spot. Because of the unyielding nature of the pure stainless steel PW is made of if I thrust it against my g-spot it gets sore and crazy sensitive extra quickly, so I have to be nice and gentle with it.

Still, there’s no other g-spot toy that I have that finds the g-spot with such amazing accuracy and gives the perfect amount of pressure and sensation to it. Let me say that again: no other toy gives as good g-spot stimulation as the Pure Wand. Seriously. Take a few moments to let that sink in.

njoypurewandspecs

The brilliance of the PW is in the curve, I believe. It’s extreme, and I can’t think of another toy that has the same curve. It may seem like it’s too extreme for you, it felt that way for me when I first got it, I thought it was almost too much, since other and often even mildly curved toys will do well on my g-spot, but there is nothing that gets close to the PW except maybe it’s larger sibling the Eleven (review coming tomorrow).

How does it do it? My theory is that the steel and the weight of the PW somehow combine to create one point five pounds of hard pure orgasmic win. Don’t take it from me, try it for yourself.

I also love that just about every time I pick up my PW it is very cool. My bedroom is usually kept at a low temperature and so the PW gets time to suck in all that cold and then try to steal the heat from my flesh. If I wanted to I could run it under some warm water to warm it up before using it, but the feeling of the cool steel against me is just too enjoyable to give up.

The conclusion: go get one. Fascinations, aside from sending me the njoy Pure Wand to review also has one of the lowest prices on the PW that I have seen out there. I’m not just saying that. Most other places it’s over $100, and rightfully so. It’s worth every penny.

Review: Dai-Do #6 [Heavy Metal Week]

Dai-Do #6 (from now on known as Six) is the same length as it’s fellow product Dai-Do #5 only with one bulb instead of three graduated ones. It’s also made out of aluminum with a silicone band (the black part) made for gripping and in functionality is extremely similar to Five. Like all metal toys Six is excellent for temperature play (pop in the fridge or run under warm water).

Just like with Five Six has a good amount of weight to it. It’s not unpleasant or unwieldy, but it is heavily seated in the handle since the rest of Six is pretty insubstantial comparatively. This means in use the handle does pull quite a bit on the rest of Six, so if you’re planning on inserting and walking around with this in that would at very least give you a great Kegel workout.

The best use of Six is as an anal toy, and since there is a bigger disparity between the end of the insertable length of Six and the handle I think it’s also safer than Five to use anally. As I mentioned already, the weighted handle will try to pull the toy out of you when in use also, which could be helpful in the case of worrying about Six getting sucked up into your butt. Personally I love the feeling of weight in a plug, and mostly I’ve used Six as an anal plug (insert and let rest) rather than an anal dildo (insert, remove, repeat), so I have really enjoyed Six and flexing my anal area Kegels using it it.

I have used Six vaginally and while it suitably stimulated me it didn’t have any sort of wow factor. It was slightly difficult to angle the right way to hit the g-spot solo, but moderately easy with a partner. This seems to be the case with most non-curved toys, though, so that was not a huge detractor in my mind. It’s simply an okay vaginal dildo, but an excellent anal one.

If you’re looking for a great metal anal dildo that isn’t too huge (would be excellent for beginners) I definitely recommend Six.

Review: Dai-Do #5 [Heavy Metal Week]

I’ve been drawn to the Dai-Do line from Big Teaze Toys since they came out but didn’t get my hands on one until now. The Dai-Do #5 (now on known as “Five”) has never been my first choice of the Dai-Do line and when I received it I wasn’t quite sure how I would like it. I tend to like curved items better for penetration in general because of their g-spot stimulation abilities, but I am a fan of bulbs and texture.

What first struck me that I wasn’t expecting was the weight of Five. I have one other aluminum dildo and it is exceptionally light. Five feels like there is a weight inside of it, but not in an unpleasing way. In fact, it is quite pleasantly balanced.

Like all metal toys Five is excellent for sensation play, it can be popped into the fridge for a bit to chill it down and you can either use it like an ice cube on any part of the body or internally to give a bit of a shock. You can also run it under warm water for the opposite affect.

The silicone band around the bulb handle is slightly matte so it is easy to hold on to, though less easy when lube is added to the mix. I also really like the size and shape of the handle, it’s big enough to be easy to grip without being too big or uncomfortable. Unfortunately it doesn’t really have a flare of any sort so it makes me worried about using it anally, which is really the place I think it is best suited for. More on that later.

Vaginally Five is, well, just okay. I do like the weight of it but I find that when using it solo I have a difficult time hitting my g-spot with it. Maybe because of the graduated balls, maybe because I’ve become lazy after using so many curved toys, I don’t know, but it just doesn’t quite do it. I like the sensation of the hard metal and the way it continually gets larger, but it just isn’t that exceptional. That’s not to say it’s not a fine dildo, as it does it’s job, just not above and beyond.

Anally, however, Five is excellent. I absolutely adore graduated bulbs in my ass, I think they feel wonderful, and add to that the feeling of cool aluminum and this toy is an absolute winner. As I mentioned before, however, the lack of a flared base to keep Five from being sucked up into your butt is worrisome. Granted, that bulb handle is quite large and I don’t think I could get it in my ass without lots of work, and I do think that the weight in the handle would help it not get lost up there, but the threat is there because of the round handle, if it was flatter where the handle meets the bottom bulb I would be less worried. When using it anally I try to keep the handle and the bottom of the third bulb mostly out of my butt. Just in case.

Overall I think Five is excellently made and a gorgeous toy, even if it’s not exactly perfect.

Review: Sh! Whirly Girly 2 Glow


The Whirly Girly 2

Sh! makes a whole mess of Whirly Girly dildos in slightly different shapes and sizes. They are all 100% silicone and completely body-safe and all have adorable heart-shaped bases which are excellent to grip or in a strap-on harness. As far as dildos go, the Whirly Girly 2 is mostly unremarkable, it’s relatively short and thin (made especially for anal penetration), slightly curved, and has swirls coming up around it kind of like a candy cane. The thing that sets it apart from other dildos of it’s kind is one very special power. It glows in the dark!

That’s right, this is a 100% silicone dildo that glows in the dark! I cannot express how excited I was when I learned about this. If you don’t like this style but are as excited as I am at the idea of a glow in the dark dildo Sh! also makes the Glow Cupid 3 which is longer and thicker.


I couldn’t myself get a good picture of it’s glowing abilities, so this will have to do.

Like most glow in the dark things it needs to be around a light source prior to glowing, so if you keep it in a toybox or something similar which does not often see light it won’t glow right away. When it’s sufficiently charged it’s really quite bright in a dark room, very easy to see, and every inch of it glows. Now I want a second one to have glow-in-the-dark dildo (lightsaber) duels. There is all sorts of fun that a glow in the dark dildo can have that a regular dildo cannot.

Aside from the glow in the dark aspect of the Whirly Girly 2 is mostly just a good solid anal dildo and is excellent for use in a harness. The heart-shaped base isn’t as thick as some bases but it’s fairly big and the shape of it is easily seen around an o-ring. The silicone itself is about medium-firm and slippery smooth, easy to use with just a little bit of lube (water-based only). Since it is fairly thin it might not be very satisfying vaginally for some, but it’s perfect for an anal beginner or working up to larger toys.

The inner geek in me is just giddy about this toy. I love it. While it’s not the most exciting shape and size to me it makes up for it with it’s glowing abilities.


The heart-shaped base!

Review: Vixen Creations Woody

How could I pass up a dildo from such a wonderful company as Vixen Creations that is also gorgeously red? Obviously I couldn’t. (Yes, I just answered my own rhetorical question. What of it?) Surprisingly, this is the first red dildo I own, there seems to be a surprising lack of red options out there for dildos, especially red silicone. Now I just need to find a red dildo with sparkles/glitter that isn’t made out of jelly.

The first dildo I ever owned was another Vixen toy named Leo. Even though I don’t own too many Vixen products all have a special place in my heart. I bought my Leo about eight years ago and it is still just as great as the first day I bought it. The marvelous thing about silicone toys is that if you treat them right they will last a damn long time.

Woody is similar to Leo in that their curves are comparable, though Woody is a little shorter and flares as it gets closer to the base. I knew I would like Woody because I love Leo and Brando, my other Vixen toy.

What’s there to say about Woody? It’s really a good solid toy all around.

Woody’s packaging is simple, like all Vixen products it comes in a transparent tube with the Vixen logo that has care and product instructions on the side.

It has a hole in his base and comes with a one-speed bullet vibrator with batteries included. Unlike other bullet vibrators of the same style this one has a removal string attached to it, which is pretty brilliant but I had not seen it before this toy. I love the string as it makes it so much easier to get the bullet out of Woody’s hole. It’s even easier with a bit of lube on the bullet before you slide it in, as long as it’s water-based lube.

When touching my finger to Woody’s head while the bullet was inside and on I could feel the vibrations all the way to the tip. Since I’m not big on internal vibration I’ve only used the bullet inside Woody once. Although it was pleasant when I used it that way I prefer vibrations on my clit. If you, like me, aren’t big on internal vibrations you can always use the bullet on your clit while using Woody inside you.

The length and width of Woody are both very nice, I really like the way it gets thicker near the base, and it’s not too long to be uncomfortable. It’s got a nice curve to it which, I was happy to discover, hits my g-spot exceptionally. Better than I imagined it would, actually. It’s made of a nice firm silicone that gives a little when you squeeze it but not much. Silicone being one of the safest sex toy materials out there, see care instructions below.

I haven’t used Woody in a harness yet, though I plan to soon and expect it will perform wonderfully. I love being able to have a realistic-looking cock in a non-realistic color (especially red), though Vixen also is the maker of VixSkin, a realistic feeling 100% silicone blend and Mustang is (I believe) Woody’s VixSkin skin-colored counterpart.

Basically, there’s just no bad here, especially if you like red dildos as I definitely do. Essentially the choice between Vixen Creations dildos comes down to what size and color you want, as they are all quality toys and most of them are made to hit the g-spot.

Review: Tantus Vamp

The Tantus Vamp came out around Halloween of 2009 and was inspired by Twilight.

Before I go on I just want to say officially for the record Twilight “vampires” are not vampires. Vampires don’t sparkle. The creatures in Twilight are more like emo faeries. Yes, I said it. I haven’t read the Twilight books, though I have (ashamedly) seen the (horrible) movies that are out due to a good friend who dragged me to the latest one. I’m not a fan.

Yes, the Vamp is made to be like a Twilight “vampire’s” cock: pale and sparkly and cold (Silicone retains temperature well, so you can pop it in the fridge or run it under cold water to cool it down for that “fun” necrophilia vampire feeling). So, not being a fan of Twilight, why did I get the Tantus Vamp to review? Well, it’s f’ing awesome. Seriously.

I’m all about fabulous sparkly things (the dildo, not the “vampires”) and so when Fascinations offered me the Vamp to review I couldn’t resist it! It doesn’t really sparkle as in glitter it rather shimmers kind of like the way snow catches the light, or crystals of any sort. If you’ve ever used shimmer body mist it’s that same kind of shimmer, mostly-there-but-sometimes-not kind of shimmer. It is awesome. Don’t take my word for it, here’s a video by Tantus showing off the shimmery sparklyness:

In addition to the awesome color it is also made by Tantus which in and of itself is enough to make me want to try it. Tantus uses their own specially formulated blend of 100% medical grade silicone and is one of the top producers of silicone (and aluminum) toys out there, in my opinion. I have written a number of Tantus reviews, including a recent one of a dildo somewhat similarly shaped the Deuce 2.

Silicone is awesome because it is hypoallergenic, non-porous, phthalate free, and generally body-friendly. It won’t make your insides burn when you use it01, it can be completely sterilized (see care instructions below) and therefore used in any orifice of any person as long as you sterilize it between people and moving from the back- to the front-door. While silicone toys do tend to be more expensive they are well worth the price because, unlike cheaper materials, they will last forever as long as you take care of them02.

I think the Vamp is an excellent size, a little larger than average perhaps, but large enough to satisfy those who enjoy larger toys and small enough for those relatively new to toys or penetration to use. The base makes it very easy to hold on to while using it solo or with a partner and the flared base makes it great for anal play or use within a strap-on harness.

Vamp really is a realistic-looking dildo, aside from the sparklyness and the extremely pale color. It has a wonderful realistic head as well as veins that run along the shaft, not so many that it is unrealistic or uncomfortable, just enough to be aesthetically pleasing. While the shaft is only slightly curved it still does provide some fabulous g-spot stimulation due to the shape of the head.

It’s really just a great dildo in general, but if you are also into Twilight (and it’s fine if you are, I’m not judging just stating my own opinions!) it would be easy to use this during a sexy “vampire” roleplay, and since it is harness-compatible, shareable, and able to be stuck in the fridge to cool it down below body temperature there are many ways to use it in that regard.

A big huge thanks to Fun Love for sending me a Vamp to review!
