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: Tybo Europa [Heavy Metal Week]

Tybo Europa doesn’t so much look like a sex toy but looks nearly identical to a mascara I used to have, same color red, same shape when the cap is on, and just about the same size. I assume this was intentional. It doesn’t look like a sex toy at all and would be easy to carry around in a bag or purse or leave out in the open without much suspicion, assuming you’re the type to wear make up.

Europa looks and feels like a luxury toy (and is priced that way too). It really is gorgeous and well made. I love the color and the design of it. Europa comes in three pieces: a triangular base, a long body with a round top, and a cylindrical cap. The body itself unscrews into three pieces, two silver and one red, and the battery sits within the red part of the toy. Each piece has a ring around where it screws in to make it watertight.

While Europa could be inserted it’s very slim which may or may not be a plus depending on how much of a size queen you are, and is definitely more suited to be a clitoral toy in general.

To turn Europa on simply press the button in the bottom of the toy. Unfortunately there is only one speed. Since it just takes one battery to power this product the vibration strength is not very high. If you need strong vibrations this toy is definitely not for you. This was definitely a disappointment, although I was able to get off with Europa but not without substantial amounts of hard work.

The one upside of Europa’s vibration strength is the material. This was my first introduction to a vibrator made out of a hard material. For those of us who love pressure using a hard material clitorally is seriously wonderful. This didn’t make up completely for the lack in vibration strength, but it definitely improved my feelings for Europa in general.

Being that Europa is made of metal it is also excellent for temperature play, stick it in the fridge or run it under warm water to play with sensations.

For the price I would have hoped for a rechargeable toy, or at least one with more than one speed. There are at least a handful of luxury toys in this price range that fit one or both of those. While Europa didn’t wow me completely it wasn’t completely horrid either and definitely turned me on to hard material vibrators.

Much thanks to My Pleasure for sending me the Tybo Europa to review!

Review: Tantus Alumina Revolve

Since I first heard of Tantus’ Alumina line I’ve been dying to try one. Unlike all other Tantus toys the Alumina line is made out of, can you guess? Aluminum, of course. My chance came in Alumina Revolve, a smooth sleek double-ended dildo.

Every product in the Alumina line is double-ended and screws together in the middle, where that little black band is in the picture above, which means that the ends of the four Alumina products can be swapped out for other pieces to make different toys. This is a very unique design, and of course means I covet all four Alumina toys.

Also unique to the Alumina line is their packaging. Other Tantus products come in very simple packaging, but the Alumina line has an elegant black box with silver writing and the shape of the toy outlined on the top in silver. Inside the toy itself is nestled in black foam and a slim instruction/care booklet. Still simple, but with a touch of class.

Tantus Alumina Revolve

Similar to glass and other metal toys aluminum has no give, so a little goes a long way as far as orifices are concerned. In my experience the harder the object the fuller the feeling you get from it, and Revolve is no exception. I found each side of the Revolve to be perfect for anal and vaginal penetration respectively.

The side with three graduated bulbs is wonderful for anal penetration, feeling similar to anal beads when used. The feeling of the anus expanding and contracting is highly pleasurable, and is my favorite type of anal stimulation, so these three hard bulbs were a delight. Graduated bulbs are also excellent for anal beginners, as well, because they allow the penetratee to be worked up slowly to larger objects.

The side with one bulb is excellent for both g-spot stimulation and kegel exercise. It can easily be angled just right to hit the g-spot, and the hard material is great for a variety of sensations from soft massage to hard grinding. The single bulb is the perfect size for me to grip with my kegel muscles and clocking in at half a pound it has a fair amount of heft without being too heavy for a beginner such as myself.

Not too long ago we had a heat wave here in Seattle, and on the hottest day when it got into the triple digits I put Revolve (along with a few other glass and metal toys) in the fridge to cool it down before slipping it inside me and letting it cool me down. It retains temperature quite nicely, which is why it was ideal for this. It can also be warmed, should you come home and find it extra chilly and not be in the mood, by running it under warm water. Simple as that.

Revolve is a wonderfully versatile toy that everyone should enjoy. A big huge thanks to Tantus for sending me Alumina Revolve to review!
