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: Sugar High Glitter City


“Based on a true fantasy” Sugar High Glitter City is a futuristic land where sugar is outlawed. The film follows “sugar hos” as they go out and fuck for a fix while running into corrupt cops (who they happily fuck) and the Reverend Honey Dew, a reformed sugar ho who is trying to save the souls of the other sugar addicted girls. It’s wonderful campy sexy fun.

The first four scenes are rather short and including the interludes and narrated backstory into Glitter City they take up under a half hour of the film’s hour and thirteen minute running time. I love that a wide range of ethnicities, sizes, and gender presentations are represented through each of the scenes and that a gay boi/boi scene is included (my favorite scene of the film). Plus the music is great, I recognized only a few of the songs (Best Cock on the Block!) but they fit the theme of the movie and didn’t distract from it at all. The quality of the DVD isn’t great, but the scenes are exciting enough to make up for it.

Blue (Jackie Strano) and Stark (Stark) are cops known for “shaking down” the sugar hos and make Bitta Honey (Brooklyn Bloomberg) suck them off and fuck them so they don’t take her in. Jackie makes her beg for a blow pop he had in his pocket and has a gorgeous marbeled blue and white Vixen Creations cock (Leo?). The only thing that worried me a little was Jackie putting the blow pop against her clit, but the massive amount of ejaculate (“sugar water”) probably got rid of any trace of sugar.

Rev. Honey Dew (Shar Rednour) has renounced sugar but we get to see a glimpse of when she was just Honey Dew and she had a fondness for Cherry Glaze (Josephine X). They have wonderful chemistry throughout the short scene. They share a blow pop and Honey Dew is the Queen of Dirty Talk while she fucks Cherry. Both of them are covered in glitter, like most of the sugar hos throughout the film, which is only mildly distracting while watching Josephine come.

Gooden Plenty (Rocko Capital) picks up the sugar rent boy Blow Pop (Chester Drawers). Blow Pop happily sucks on Gooden’s liquorish sticks and ring pop, literally, before getting fucked. The shot gets weirdly distorted as they fuck, maybe representing the sugar high they’re both on? The scene is actually pretty short, which is regrettable because it’s ridiculously hot and I really want to see more of both of them.

Crem de la Marmalade (Simone de la Getto) is the Queen Sugar Mama of Glitter City and Salt Taffy (Hella Getto) is her favorite sugar ho. Simone’s glittery dreads are mesmerizing and their sweet nothings to each other (in addition to the same last name) makes me think they’re an item. Their connection is undeniable and their short scene fades away into a disco ball after Salt Taffy comes. Luckily we get to see more of them later.

Rock Candy (Charlie Skye) and Miss Goldie Icing (Aimee Pearl) give us a Daddy/girl scene with Rock sporting a gorgeous purple and pink marbled Leo. Unlike the previous scenes they take their time getting to the fucking. Goldie begs for Rock’s cock, they undress each other, and Rock licks sugar (his payment for his services) off of her breast and mons in lines like it’s coke. Again, the proximity of sugar to vagina took me out of the scene a bit, but it was definitely hot. Rock makes Goldie beg even more to be fucked and she continues as he’s fucking her, changing from asking to commanding as she gets close to orgasm.

Blue seduces Honey Dew from her sugar-free ways with the temptation of sugar and lots of wonderful kisses while Cherry watches. Naturally this leads to a long threesome, the longest scene of the film. Not surprisingly there is lots of dirty talk and it very much feels like Blue and Honey Dew are sharing Cherry, which makes sense since Jackie and Shar are partners. There are random close-up shots of Blue’s cock fucking Cherry which seem a little disjointed and awkward, but only take a little away from the overall scene.

The finale of the film is Salt Taffy returning the favor to Crem de la Marmalade. Again their chemistry is explosive, probably at least part of why they’re on the cover of the box. I probably don’t have to say it, but it’s amazingly hot.


I really enjoy Sugar High Glitter City, so much so that my biggest complaint with the movie is that many of the scenes are too short. I want more of it! However, due to being short every moment is full of sexy sugary goodness that is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. Yes, I had to go there.

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.


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.


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: Swede Silicone Supreme

Up until recently I’ve been a water-based lube kind of person. For the longest time I eschewed silicone lube because of my fondness for silicone toys (since when silicone lube and silicone toys mix there’s a great possibility that there will be a chemical explosion that will destroy the toy forever! By which I mean, it will warp and/or melt the silicone and make it tacky and gross and essentially unusable). However, my acquisition of more metal sex toys recently as well as my love of glass toys and a fondness for longer lasting lube than most water-based lube will deliver has lead me to Swede Silicone Supreme.

I recently reviewed Swede Aqua Comfort which comes in the same bottle that’s nearly the same color but is water-based rather than silicone-base01. While I wasn’t much of a fan of the Aqua Comfort lube itself I was blown away by the bottle. I love pump-style bottles on lube, they’re so much easier to use in the middle of sexing than flip-top or any other styles.

These are especially awesome because they come with not one but two ways to help reduce the risk of spillage: the top turns 90 degrees to lock and there is a cap to put on the top, both of these do not allow the top to be pushed down therefore no lube can come out. Brilliant? I think so. I’ve already lost the cap since it’s a pretty tiny little bit of plastic, but that’s okay because I can still lock it. It’s good to have a backup plan.


As for performance, I think it is excellent. However, I don’t have too many other silicone-based lubes to compare it to. Or, two to be exact, only one of which I’ve reviewed02. I’ve used a few different types of silicone lube packets in the past but not consistently enough to give a great comparison. This does seem a little bit thinner than other silicone-based lube I’ve experienced, though not by much, but it works exactly the same as far as I can tell.

However, compared to water-based lube it excels in multiple areas. Although it is thin like many water-based lubes it is silky smooth, lasts for an extremely long period of time, and it will never get sticky. This also means you don’t need as much of it as you would water-based lube so the bottle will last longer as well. It doesn’t feel as natural as water-based lube, which I don’t like as much, but it’s not a deal-breaker. It also doesn’t contain any glycerin or parabens, those chemicals I usually rant about in water-based lube reviews.

Although it doesn’t have much of a smell or taste I would recommend staying with water-based lube for oral sex and primarily using silicone-based for vaginal and anal. Mostly this is because of the consistency. Since silicone lube is long lasting it can be long lasting in your mouth and leave it feeling kind of odd. Again, not horrible, but just kind of awkward and not pleasant. It’s especially perfect for anal, however since you don’t have to worry about it drying out at all.

Overall, it hasn’t become my favorite lube ever, but it’s definitely the first silicone lube I reach for when I’m looking for silicone lube. It hasn’t eclipsed Sliquid as my favorite brand, but it has convinced me that I need to get my hands on more silicone lube.

Contest: Win A Liberator Heart Wedge! [CLOSED]


What could be better than a Liberator product to help ring in the new year? This adorable heart-shaped piece of sex furniture is a limited-edition shape from Liberator and brand spankin’ new! Seriously, I don’t even have one of these yet.

Since I haven’t had the chance to use or review the Liberator Heart Wedge I will direct your attention to three reviews of it: Mistress Kay, Rayne, and True Pleasures. I encourage you to read them to get a good idea about the product that you can’t just get from the product page.

If you’re not familiar with Liberator themselves, they are an awesome USA-based company that makes shapes (position aids) and sex furniture from small (like the Heart Wedge) to large (like the Esse or Zeppelin). I’ve reviewed a few of their products in the past and look forward to more in the future. They make high quality products that really do work and work for people of all body types (I used mine successfully when I was over 300lbs!).

If all of that has convinced you that you need one of these (and why wouldn’t it?) be sure to follow the guidelines and enter to win! Also, if you’re interested in my giveaway you might be interested that the aforementioned Rayne is giving away a Liberator Wedge/Ramp Combo.

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.


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: Swede Aqua Comfort

I’m always on the look out for other types of body-friendly lube to try, even though I’m pretty sold on Sliquid brand lubes I like to see if there are any products out there that rival theirs. One thing I love about Kama Sutra Closet is that Roylin, the owner, is just as concerned about toxic ingredients and materials as I am, so she only stocks body-friendly lubes as well. I was excited when I discovered Swede Aqua Comfort01 because it’s glycerin- and paraben-free as well as free of any nasty chemicals.

I went through and looked up every ingredient02. Most ingredients are natural and all ingredients completely non-threatening. Based solely on ingredients I would recommend this to anyone and everyone, even those sensitive to chemicals. Unfortunately, this review is not based solely on ingredients.

Aqua Comfort comes in an awesome pump-bottle that has my seal of approval. Seriously, I love pump bottles and more lube makers should use them, they’re so easy to use! The pump top even has a little cap to help prevent spillage as the pump can’t be pressed down with the cap on. Also, if you lose the cap, the top of the bottle twists 45 degrees so you can lock it so it won’t even be able to be pressed. Double protection.

The lube itself is smooth and slick. It’s not as thick as my beloved Sliquid but not nearly as runny as some other body-friendly lubes. It actually is quite pleasant until you’ve used it for a bit. I really don’t understand how it does this, but it gets kind of sticky.

It’s not sticky in the same way that lubes with glycerin in them get sticky, it’s more like… tacky. Or just generally unpleasant. I’m not quite sure how to describe it, it’s just not all wonderful smooth silky gliding anymore. It’s not completely uncomfortable, and I’ve had plenty of sessions using this lube, but there are definitely better body-friendly lubes out there.

Other than getting slightly sticky Aqua Comfort wins in every other respect. It’s practically odorless and tasteless and completely body-friendly. I’m just pretty picky with my lube.

They’re also encouraging everyone (especially sex/sex toy bloggers) to become a sponsor or participate in a blog carnival on the topic “How Have Sex Toys Changed My Life”. You can read my blog carnival entry here if you would like.

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!
