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: LELO Isla

Oh, LELO, how I love you. I have mooned over every product since I was sent my very first LELO pleasure object. I’ve made it my mission to own every LELO product. I drool every time a new product of theirs comes out, every time I have the pleasure of exploring a new creation of theirs, and Isla was no exception. Isla is one of the new Insignia line which boasts a different look, new controls, and a completely waterproof body.

Isla comes in LELO’s signature black box v3.0. With the original line the box was black canvas with a plastic cut-out shape for the toy and a plastic cover then a big open space at the bottom for the manual and charging cord. Version 2.0 was a black cardboard box with a weird paper and plastic clam-shell type bit holding the toy inside and a sectioned off bottom which I was not really a fan of. The Insignia (3.0) version is a black cardboard box with a foam cut-out that fits the toy and one for the included Insignia Broach. On one end there is a cardboard lift-up tab to get underneath the cut-out foam where the manual, warranty, quality guarantee, and satin storage bag are stored.

I was not the only reviewer to mention disliking the v2.0 style, especially the clamshell thing, so I was extremely happy for the change to the current packaging. It’s definitely the best yet, it is both better looking and better functioning than the two previous versions, in my opinion. LELO stepped up the class of the Insignia line by including a broach with the Insignia logo on it, a triple infinity symbol, which is quite beautiful. It’s silver to match the toy’s design and not at all obviously linked to a sex toy.

leloisla3

Speaking of the design, I absolutely love the way Isla and all of the Insignia line looks. The cut-out handle and mix of the textures of their smooth silicone with the metallic-coated ABS plastic is just gorgeous and feels wonderful, as per usual with LELO. The metallic sides of the toy are concave and thinner than the silicone sides making Isla more oval shaped than circular like most sex toys. I was a bit disappointed, however, due to Isla’s lack of curve. It has a gorgeous silhouette but the curve on it is just not very pronounced so it doesn’t hit the g-spot very easily. It can be angled that way, however, and since it’s not pliable at all it’s quite wonderful when it does, but it takes effort.

Gone are the four control buttons of old to be replaced with three buttons: plus, minus, and mode. Intuitive enough, you turn Isla’s vibration strength on and up with the plus, down with the minus, and cycle through the familiar eight types of sensation with the mode button. Just like Ina, Mona, and the other newer LELO toys Isla’s last sensation mode that seems to play a song and even beeps. Strange but cool. The vibrations themselves are moderately deep and fairly strong. It’s no powerhouse but it is pleasant and can get me off without problem.

As I already mentioned, Isla is completely waterproof which both makes it more versatile and easier to clean than previous LELO products. This wonderful addition is achieved due to the charging port being covered with a thin self-healing silicone membrane. In order to charge it you have to push the adapter through the silicone creating a tiny tear. Even though there is a tear it is not visible to the naked eye once unplugged due to the “self-healing” technology. I don’t know how it works, but it does keep Isla completely waterproof.

While the charging port makes it easier to clean Isla also has a small groove all along where the metallic ABS plastic meets the silicone as the grooves around the buttons that all need a little special attention. Still, that is a small price to pay for the gorgeous look of the Insignia line, so I don’t mind so much.

LELOisla

As with previous LELO products the area around the three buttons on Isla blink while it is charging and turn solid when the charging is finished. LELO claims that two hours of charging will bring you four hours of play time but the standby time is also excellent. I charged my Isla when I got it about a month ago and have not had to recharge it since. You can also lock Isla by pressing down the plus and minus buttons at the same time until the light turns off and do the same until the light turns on to unlock it. In case you need to turn it off in a hurry you can also press down the same buttons when it is on to turn it off immediately without having to press and hold the minus button until it turns off.

Although Isla wasn’t as perfect as I was hoping for it to be I still enjoy it and tend to use it more like a clitoral vibrator than an insertable one, but that also has to do with my general indifference to insertable vibrators and preference for clitoral ones. I’m very much hoping to try out Alia and Soraya not just because they’re beautiful but I will probably be more keen on using both of those for their intended purposes. The design and beauty as well as the overall quality of LELO products makes up for the subtle curve in my book anyway.

Much thanks to LELO for sending me the Isla 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!

Vibrator Review: Wahl All-Body Massager

Although I had heard about the Wahl from other bloggers I trust as being an amazingly awesome vibrator I had my doubts. I’ve tried quite a few massager-style vibrators before and I just figured it would be another Hitachi and in no way match or outweigh my love for my Fairy Mini Mini, but I was wrong. While it’s somewhat similar the sensation is different.

Wahl is like a clitoral jackhammer. It’s deep and throbby and amazing. Like a lot of other massager vibes it has two speeds: gentle intensity, and omgholyfuckthatsgood. The second and higher setting gets me off in about 30 seconds. It’s powerful, unrelenting, and did I mention it’s amazing?

It actually feels to me like Wahl’s sensations are more similar to the oscillations of Eroscillator than the vibrations of other massager-style vibrators, only with more power. They’re not exactly the same by any means, but there seems to be a bit of back-and-forth movement with Wahl just like with Eroscillator. This could be my imagination, but it’s my experience. I would almost go so far as to say Wahl is better than my precious Eroscillator. Almost. However, when price is taken into consideration Wahl wins hands down since it’s far less expensive. This means you should get one.

Attachments

Since it’s an “all-body massager” it comes with eight attachments for various parts of the body. Of course this means I’ve used them all on my clit and I’ve also used these on some of the intended body parts. The Wahl also rocks as a back massager. Win.

I had a difficult time with some of these the first time I tried to put them each on the Wahl. They are quite stiff and so is the little shaft you insert them onto and mine seemed to be just a little smaller than that shaft. Probably good for them not falling off, but irritating at first. They’ve since mellowed out a bit and are not so much a problem.

Clockwise from 12 o’clock (the one with multiple little spikes).

  1. Scalp “Acupressure points stimulate blood flow and massage the scalp.” – Amazing on what it’s made for: the scalp, but not so great other places. It’s okay on sensitive bits like nipples and I’ve used it on my clit but it’s just not all that exciting. The little
  2. Knuckle & Joints “Triangular shape to get into knuckles and joints.” – I really like this one, easy to use either the point of the triangle or one of the sides. It slips easily between my labia and nestles against my clit. Lovely.
  3. Spot Application “Pin-point massage.” – Excellent. Amazing. Perfect for clit stimulation. This is my favorite, hands-down. It’s exactly what it says, pin-point massage that gets right against my clit and rocks it like a fucking jackhammer. That might sound painful, but it’s awesome. I love it.
  4. Deep Muscle “Digs deep to reach those tight knots and helps to relieve pain.” – Deep indeed! Super deep and throbby, excellent on the clit. I thought the circles on the sides would be weird and get in the way or something but they don’t. This is somewhat similar to Spot Application but wider, which makes for a different sensation, vibrating my labia as well instead of just my clit.
  5. General Body “All-over soothing.” – Excellent for nipples, I wish it could cup the clit the way I envision it should but it doesn’t. It’s nice, but not great.
  6. Muscle Kneading “Stimulates blood circulation.” – Ooh, ahh, yes. I love this one as well, though I was wary of it at first it has grown in my love. It’s tied with Deep Muscle as my 2nd favorite, as it’s just as deep and wonderful.
  7. Facial “A smooth surface for a gentle massage to the face.” – Kind of similar to General Body. It’s wide and only slightly concave. The wideness and flatness of it is a little peculiar and I definitely prefer other attachments on my clit, but it’s nice on other places.

Really, I was just blown away by Wahl, far more than I imagined I would be. I can’t recommend it highly enough. Much thanks to My Pleasure for sending me the Wahl 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: Vida Urja [Heavy Metal Week]

I wanted to like the Vida Urja. I really really did. I love the idea of remote controlled toys, they can be so naughty and sexy in the right hands. I love going out with something tucked against my clit or inside of me with the remote in Onyx’s pocket. Unfortunately, though Urja is gorgeous it just did not live up to my hopes for it.

Urja (ûrj’əh) is packaged beautifully, it really is a luxury toy in every sense of the word. In addition to the vibrator and controller, both of which I’ll talk about later, Urja also comes with a power adapter (yes, the vibrator half of Urja is rechargeable!), a faux leather carrying case, a storage bag that closes with a ribbon, a user manual, and a standard one-year product warranty. The presentation is gorgeous and luxurious and if this review were based on presentation alone this toy would easily have been a five.

vidaurja1

Both the vibrator and controller are hourglass shaped and pretty sexy looking. I’m not big on pink but I love the black with pink accents and think it looks excellent. They are just plain beautifully designed and well-made. The shiny middle parts of both of them are aluminum (qualifying them for Heavy Metal Week) and they have matte silicone on each end. The pink is, I believe, ABS plastic, though I haven’t found documentation to back me up on that. The removal string on the vibrator is made of silicone and is slightly stretchy but difficult to break.

The vibrator half of Urja is the one that is plugged in, it has a silicone cover for it’s power port therefore making it watertight since it is designed to be inserted. The controller is powered by a weird little 23A battery which is very nicely included with purchase so you don’t have to go around searching for it. The controller of the only other remote-controlled vibrator I’ve owned was powered with the same battery and I’ve actually seen some sex toy shops carrying it specifically because, I assume, it’s pretty common for sex toy remotes.

Urja claims to charge in two hours for a resulting two hours of play time which seems, frankly, like a bad charging-to-play-time-ratio. Perhaps I’m spoiled, but it seems most rechargeable toy batteries get far better ratios than that. Also, when plugged in there is no light or indicator that it is charging at all and no indicator when it is done, so you just have to plug it in and assume it’s working as it’s supposed to. I do not like this. At all.

The controller has a single button that is not always easy to press. Luckily the controller does have a strip right around the button that does light up pink when you press it correctly. You have to press the button down rather firmly and for a few seconds before the vibrator will turn on. I assume this is so that it is not just going to randomly turn the vibrator on if the controller is jostling around in your pocket, so I can forgive this even though it is a little annoying.

Urja is supposed to have a range of about 20 feet between the controller and the vibrator that it will work within. While I was able to turn it on from across the room it wasn’t exactly easy and seems to work far better the closer the controller is to the vibrator. It also works best with a direct line between the controller and vibrator. It was not so easy if I was to either side of the person, perhaps there was too much flesh in the way or something.

vidaurja2

The vibrations themselves are not too exciting. There are five speeds, from “is that on?” to “that’s nice, but not that powerful.” Every speed is a constant vibration, there are no fancy pulsing vibration patterns, though they aren’t necessarily needed. In order to turn Urja off, however, you must cycle through all five speeds, which is quite annoying. It would be better if there was an on/off button and two up/down buttons or at very least separate on/off and speed buttons. Oh well.

Since Urja is made for insertion the vibrations are also dampened a little bit when worn. It can be used against the clit but there isn’t a great way to hold it in place. The vibrations themselves aren’t too loud when inserted, though if you’re in a very quiet restaurant it would be possible to hear the vibrations, but in the age of vibrating cell phones it might not be too terribly noticeable. In a loud restaurant, bar, or club, however, no problem.

Where Urja really shines is for light teasing of a partner in an otherwise noisy situation. Unless you do not need much vibration strength to get off I would say Urja is not ideal for that, but, like every sex toy, it will work better for some than others. Though, for the most part, if you are using it internally that alone will probably not get you off, so the vibration strength might not be a deal breaker for you. It is adorable, well-made, and if a few things changed about it I think it could be just about perfect. Alas.

Much thanks to Adult Sensations sex toys for sending me Vida Urja to review!

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!
