Pulse from Hot Octopuss

- Interesting design
- Powerful
- Rechargeable
- Easy to use
- Really loud
- Total lint magnet
- Lowest setting is too powerful
- Not waterproof/splash proof
- Charging port plug doesn’t work well





Pulse from Hot Octopuss is an interesting new stimulator designed with male pleasure in mind.  That’s right ladies, step away from this one!

Rather than just grabbing the lube for a boring jack off session, you can now reach for the Pulse as well.  It works by placing your flaccid or erect penis through the flexible sides and allowing the strong oscillations to take you over the edge.  You can hold it in place for more targeted pleasure, or stroke it up and down to take advantage of the ribbed texture on the lower part of the toy.

Untitled-10On top of being used as a male solo toy, you can also use it along with a partner.  The company states that the toy can be used to stimulate both you and your partner at the same time.  Pulse is placed around the penis just like it would be for solo use, but the back of the toy can also stimulate their partner’s genitals by rubbing against each other (see image).  If positioning it between your bodies doesn’t work for you, you can still use it on your partner during a blow job or in place of a regular hand job.

Though it’s compact and easy to use, it’s important to use caution around water.  It’s not waterproof so you can’t take it with you into the tub or shower, and it’s not splash proof, so you need to be careful when cleaning it.  It’s best to simply clean with a toy wipe or damp cloth to prevent any water from accidentally leaking inside of it.


The Pulse is made from both ABS Plastic and Silicone.  Both materials are body safe, latex free, non-porous, and phthalate free.  The entire toy is black, but the plastic has a shine to it and the silicone has a matte surface.

Untitled-7The surface of the silicone is fairly smooth, but picks up an unbelievable amount of lint.  You have to constantly wipe it off in order to keep it clean (my apologizes for the linty images!).  It does require water-based lubricant to help things slide smoothly, but doesn’t need much.  Use only water-based because other types could react negatively and cause surface damage to your toy.  The plastic area (which is only present on the back of the toy) is totally smooth apart from the texture that’s present.

Untitled-5The back of the toy has four raised lines on the plastic and three on the silicone that would help stimulate a female who’s using the product along with her partner.  This texture is also helpful when you have lube Untitled-8on your hands since it helps you keep a good grip on it.  Inside, there are three rows of ribs toward the bottom of the toy, and the round PulsePlate that extends from the toy.  These are felt only by the penis and are most obvious when you use it in a stroking motion.

The area of the toy that rests in your hand is very firm as it has all the internal parts underneath the surface, but the tip and wings are very flexible.  This flexibility makes it comfortable during use, and will accommodate a wider range of sizes as a result.  During use, you can hold the toy in place, or you can press down on the wings to apply pressure to the top of the shaft.


The design of the Pulse is something I can really appreciate.  I’ve seen some male toys that were shaped similarly, but not anything quite like this one.  My husband said it looks like something Darth Vader probably would have used.  I didn’t immediate think that, but once he pointed it out I could see it too.  It’s fairly discreet and unassuming.  If someone were to see it they might not know what it was, but powering it on would give away its use.

The shape is ergonomic, making it easy to hold onto and use.  If you have smaller hands you might find you’re unable to flex the wings during use, but shouldn’t have any issues apart from that.  The overall design, size, and shape should work for the majority of users.


The full length is 4 1/2″ and it’s 8 3/8″ around the whole toy.  The dimensions inside the winged area are harder to measure, but should work for just about anyone.  The wings are each 3 1/4″ wide, approximately 1 3/8″ tall, and are 1 1/2″ apart.


The Pulse is USB rechargeable and comes with a partial charge.  Before using it, you should make sure it’s fully charged to prevent it from dying during use.  On the bottom of the toy is a small plug that gets pulled out to reveal the charging port.  It’s Untitled-6easy to remove, but doesn’t go back in place very well (mine won’t go back in at all).  When the toy is charging, a small red light glows on the base of the toy.  The paperwork says to charge for 4 hour before use, but it took much less than that when I charged it for the first time.  Once fully juiced up, the little light will turn off.

There are two buttons on this toy, one on each side.  The plus button turns the toy on and raises the intensity, and the minus button decreases the intensity and turns the toy off.  The buttons are raised from the toy and make a clicking sound when pressed.  A blue light glows from the center when turned on, making it easy to use even when it’s dark.


What really makes this toy unique is the Oscillating PulsePlate.  Hot Octopuss states, “PulsePlate technology is the patented system PULSE uses to deliver high-amplitude oscillations rather than low-amplitude vibrations.

Medical research has identified that oscillations applied in a very specific way can create incredibly deep and powerful orgasms for a man. PULSE has harnessed this science through its PulsePlate.

Oscillators are common place in the scientific world; PULSE however is the first to bring this technology to the wider male sex toy market. Unlike vibrators, PUSLE delivers powerful and deep high-amplitude waves direct to the man’s most sensitive area, his frenulum.”

Untitled-11It doesn’t just oscillate, it vibrates as well.  The circle in the center of the toy that features the crown is the PulsePlate, but the back of the toy also vibrates to help pleasure your partner.  Though these areas are smaller, the power can be felt throughout the whole toy.  It doesn’t numb your hand, but you can feel it during use.

There are a total of nine steady intensity levels (no patterns), giving you some variety when it comes to how powerful you want the toy to be.  Unfortunately, if you’re more sensitive, even the lowest setting is likely to be too intense for you.  It would have been nice to see a wider range of intensity levels, rather than starting out so powerful.

With power, comes noise.  While it won’t wake the neighbors, it’s easily heard through a closed door, especially during use.  The PulsePlate gets very loud when it comes in contact with anything.  It plainly states not to press on it, but even through normal use it’s loud.


The Pulse arrives in a thin cardboard box that has a lot of information and images on the outside.  It’s not discreet since it’s obvious what it contains, but it’s done in a tasteful and attractive way.  Inside the box, your Pulse is cradled in a plastic tray, preventing it from moving around during shipping.  There’s also an instruction booklet that contains the basic information in several different languages.



When I first heard about the Pulse, I was so intrigued.  I love trying out new things with my husband, and immediately imagined the fun we would have with this toy.  My husband doesn’t jack off alone (ah, to be lazy), so I knew I was going to be the one using this on him; to say I was excited would be an understatement!

After taking photos and charging, I checked out the power of the toy on my own.  I was instantly impressed (and wished I could feel that PulsePlate on me!).  All I could think about was how much my husband was going to enjoy this.  When he came home and checked it out, he wasn’t so sure about it.  I told him it would be great, so we set it aside for later.

Once we got settled into bed and ready for action, I reached for the toy while he grabbed the lube, and we got started.  The second the PulsePlate touched his penis, he was uncomfortable.  He made a horrible face, was squirming, making noises and nothing I did was helping.  I handed it over so he could use it on his own, hoping he could find a comfortable position that I couldn’t.

He tried a few different things and experienced the same issues.  Despite his efforts, the toy was a total boner killer..literally.  He lost his erection while trying to test it out, and said he never wanted to see the thing again.

It’s simply too intense for men who aren’t used to that type of stimulation.

My husband and I have a very active sex life, but having that direct sensation on one of the most sensitive areas of his body didn’t bring him the pleasure we were hoping for.  If the company had started the intensity at a lower level, maybe we could have build up to that, but it was just too much for him.

If you enjoy vibrations and are looking for something new and different, the Pulse might be the right toy for you.  However, if you’re very sensitive and aren’t used to vibrations or anything like them, this will likely be too much for you.  The design was great, shape was wonderful, but the intensity wasn’t right, in our opinion.

In other words, Hot Octopuss, pretty, pretty please make a women’s toy that’s this powerful, and a male toy that starts off at a lower intensity?

Comfort Position Strap from Bondage Boutique

- Easy to use
- Adjustable Straps
- Well Made
- Discreet
- Easy to clean and care for
- Padded section could be longer (not plus size friendly)
- Nylon straps can irritate




The Comfort Position Strap from Bondage Boutique is a position aid that helps one or both partners feel more comfortable in certain sex positions.  It’s a very basic item which can easily be used by any couple looking for a little something to add to their lovemaking.

Untitled-9There are two common positions this strap can be used in (doggy style and missionary), but it’s not difficult to get creative and find other uses for it.  The concept is simple, you slide your hand through one adjustable strap, place the center around the back or front of your partner, and insert your hand into the hole on the other side

The purpose of this strap isn’t just to help with comfort, but to increase your pleasure.  Depending on how you’re using it, the Comfort Position Strap can help provide deeper or more focused penetration.

When the strap is used on your body, it takes away some of the discomfort you might feel from being in that particular position.  It leaves the rhythm in your partner’s hands, allowing you to relax and simply enjoy.  When you’re using the strap on your partner, you have the control!  You can pull your partner closer to you to help provide deeper sensations, and set the pace.


Untitled-5The exact material of the Comfort Position Strap isn’t specified, but it’s not at all unfamiliar.  The straps themselves are made from nylon and have plastic strap adjusters on them.  The padded section seems to be made from some type of faux fur which surrounds the 5/8″ thick foam inside.  You can smoothly run your hand in one direction, but it’s not as smooth when you run it back.  Both sides have the faux fur, but the nylon strap runs the full length of only one side.  This is obviously not the side you want directly against your body.

The surface is soft enough to be comfortable during use, but isn’t something I have to force myself to stop touching.  The padding is reasonable and gives just the right amount of cushion so you can’t feel the strap through it.  The straps themselves are really nice on one hand, and not great on the other.  If you’re the one holding the straps, it’s easy to adjust them as needed while also providing a little something to grip, which is great.  But when the strap is being used on you, it can be a different story.  If you’re on the larger side of the scale you might find the center piece isn’t long enough, allowing the straps to rub against your skin.  This can be rather irritating during use (literally), especially when your partner is being a little more aggressive.

No care or washing instructions were included, and the strap itself doesn’t have a tag on it.  You can spot wash as needed, or can toss in your washing machine on the delicate cycle.  I don’t think it’s dryer friendly, so just air dry once it’s clean.  Unless you were really sweaty or got bodily fluids (or lubricant) on the piece, you can use it a few times without worrying about cleaning it.


The design of the Comfort Position Strap is great, especially because it’s adjustable and easy to understand and use.  The center portion of the strap goes against the back or abdomen (or somewhere else if you’ve gotten creative) with the nylon straps going around either side of the body and into the hands of you or your partner.  The strap is one full piece, but the length can be adjusted to suit your needs.

Nothing about this product immediately gives away the fact that it’s a sex position aid.  It easily folds up and can be tucked into a drawer for storage, is discreet enough you could travel with it without concern, and is all around pretty basic looking.


Untitled-8The ends of each side are sewn around a plastic adjuster piece so you can decide how short or long the strap needs to be.  It forms a circle that your hands go through, so even when you’re the one Untitled-6holding the strap, you don’t have to worry about keeping a tight grip on it the whole time.  It’s also a nice change from products with wrist straps that can’t be adjusted, because no matter how large your wrists are, there won’t be a size issue because of them.

The piece measures from 37 1/2″ (when the adjuster is the closest to the padded section) to 56″ in full length, but you wouldn’t be able to slip your hands through at that point.  The nylon straps themselves are 1 1/2″ wide and the padded section is 14″ long and 4″ wide.  It doesn’t mention anything about a weight limit (not that you’ll be putting all your weight on it), but I don’t see anyone having a concern there.  I’m over 250 lbs and it held up fine to my husband using it to pull me against him.



The Comfort Position Strap arrives in a clear plastic bag that has a Ziploc like closure on it.  You can easily keep this on hand to store the strap in since it prevents anything from spilling on it during storage.  Inside, the strap is folded up and has a small Untitled-2tag on it that only has the company name, logo, and website on it.  No information on use, care, or cleaning is included, but it does come with a Bondage Boutique Loyalty card and two stickers.  Every time you purchase a product from Bondage Boutique, you receive one of these cards and stickers.  The more items you buy, the more stickers you’ll receive, and you’ll build up to getting one or two paddles for free depending on how long you save.

10 stickers will get you one free spanker, but 15 stickers will get you two.  Once your card is filled up, you place it in the mail and wait for your spanker(s) to arrive.  If you live in the UK you can just drop it in the mail, but if you’re in the US you’ll need to add a stamp.


The Comfort Position Strap isn’t a new design.  It’s something I’ve seen many companies make, but this is the first one we’ve tried.  I’ve always gone back and forth on whether I wanted to get one or not, but decided it was time to try one out.

My husband took one look at the strap and scrunched up his face.  ”What is that?”, he asked in a curiously annoyed voice.  I explained to him what it was for and how we could use it and he remained less than interested in trying it out.

About a week went by and I suggested we give it a try.  He’s pretty open about trying new things (which I certainly appreciate), and agreed to test it out with me.  It was obvious his expectations weren’t high (and to be honest, mine weren’t either), but we gave it a shot.

The first time we tried it I was on my hands and knees.  This isn’t a position we go to all the time since we prefer more face-to-face type of positions (I know, aren’t we sweet!), but we switch it up every now and then.  The strap was resting against my abdomen and I was shocked at how much power it gave him.  He immediately pulled me back toward him which made every thrust controlled.  After the first few thrusts I could feel my sides starting to get irritated by the nylon straps.  He was going pretty fast and hard and all I could focus on were how annoying the straps felt as they rubbed against my skin.  I don’t see this being an issue if you’re thin, but the padded section really isn’t plus size friendly.

While I was feeling annoyed by the straps, my husband was in his own little world.  He started going faster and I knew he was getting closer to orgasm.  When he was finished, I looked back at him and he had the hugest dopey smile on his face.  He tossed the strap on the bed, pointed to it and said, “Now that is something we’re keeping handy!”.

It’s not often my husband is highly impressed by something, but despite his initial reaction, this was a winner in his book.  If they made the strap about three inches wider on each side, I would have felt exactly the same way.  That being said, I can overlook a little annoyance knowing my husband is receiving so much pleasure from it.  I enjoyed knowing he loved it, even if it didn’t work out how I hoped it would.

All in all, it’s a well made product that’s quite effective.  If you’re plus size you might run into the same problem I did, but wearing some lingerie will prevent any irritation from occurring.  I think it’s a fantastic product that could be slightly tweaked, but is totally worth checking out!

G-Spot Labia Spreader from You 2 Toys

- Made from silicone
- Fully adjustable
- Stays in place well
- Unassuming design
- Might get in the way during some activities
- Harder to clean




The G-Spot Labia Spreader from You 2 Toys is an interesting little tool that spreads your labia without having to use your hands.  The center of the piece is inserted into your body while the two arms remain outside, helping hold your labia back to expose some of your most sensitive areas.

Having your labia spread apart allows easy access to the clitoris, which is excellent for masturbation and oral sex.  It frees up both of your hands which allows you to focus on stimulating other areas of the body.  Since part of the tool remains inside your body, you might find using insertable toys or having vaginal intercourse causes you discomfort.  Try removing the spreader and readjusting to see if that helps.

Untitled-3On top of being a useful tool, the spreader is actually pretty stimulating.  The curved area that goes inside your body gently moves against your G-spot while you’re masturbating or engaging in other sexual activities.  Having both your clitoris exposed and the tool rubbing softly inside of you is a great way to increase pleasure and comfort during play time.  Always remember, your experience may vary based on anatomy.

Though this is designed to be a labia spreader, you can also bend it for G-spot stimulation alone (with shallow thrusting).  Inserting it anally is also possible, but caution is needed.  Folding it in half and then bending each arm in the opposite direction would prevent it from accidentally slipping inside of you, and turns it into a fully adjustable prostate massager.


The G-Spot Labia Spreader is made from silicone which is non-porous, latex free, phthalate free, and body-safe.  Inside the silicone it feels like there’s some sort of thick wire that helps keep the spreader right where you position it.  The included information doesn’t mention what it is, but it doesn’t come in contact with your body.

The surface is matte and collects some lint and dust, but it’s not unreasonable.  Just make sure you clean it prior to use.  You might feel it’s important to use some lubricant since it does drag a little, but it’s much smoother than a lot of silicone toys.

Being adjustable, this tool requires a certain design to help it bend easily and stay in place.  Rather than being totally smooth, it has a ribbed pattern that starts off thin and increases in girth toward the center of the piece.  It can be felt when you’re inserting it and gently thrusting, but isn’t extreme enough to bother those that don’t care for texture.


The flexibility is impressive considering how simple this item seems.  It’s not difficult to adjust it to fit your specific needs, and does an amazing job of saying in place until you manually bend it again.


Untitled-5The G-spot Labia Spreader is extremely discreet and unassuming.  If someone were to see it in your home, it’s very unlikely they would immediately associate it with sexual activities.  It’s also really easy to store and travel with since you can fold it down to a reasonable size that doesn’t take up much space.

The external areas of the spreader are totally smooth.  It starts off thicker at the top and thins out slightly before reaching the textured area of the tool.  The insertable part of the toy starts off with puffier ribs that get thinner as you go toward the center.  All of this helps it bend just the way you need it to.

The size and fact it’s so adjustable makes it appeal to users of any experience level.  Since you can pinch the two sides close together, it shouldn’t be comfortable to use even by those that require smaller products.

One of the biggest worries I had was whether or not it would work for someone who’s ‘plus sized’ and has a thicker vulva.  I was more than impressed with the way it held everything back, and feel I can safely say your weight/size/shape shouldn’t be a concern.

When the G-Spot Labia Spreader is totally straight (not folded or curved at all) it’s 12 1/2″ long.  When folded in half and ready for insertion, there’s approximately 3″ of length you’ll insert.  That being said, this will vary depending on how you’ve bent it to fit your anatomy and needs.  The thickest area is 1/2″ in diameter, and the thinnest is 5/16″.  Obviously these measurements aren’t the important ones.  When folded in half (the best you can) the insertable portion at the thinnest is 1 1/4″ wide and can be adjusted from there.



Since the G-Spot Labia Spreader is made from silicone, it’s very easy to clean and care for.  Before and after each use, you can wash with antibacterial soap and warm water or use your favorite toy cleaner.  Because of the texture, it’s really important to get into all the little crevasses since bodily fluid can get trapped in them.  Using a soft bristled tooth brush is the best idea when it comes to cleaning.  If you’re sharing with someone else or switch orifices, you’ll want to disinfect it.  You can use a 10% bleach solution, boil it for three minutes, or place it on the top rack of your dishwasher.

Silicone is compatible with water-based lubricants only.  Other types could cause the surface to degrade, potentially making it unusable.  With the smooth surface and reasonable size, it doesn’t require much lube and water-based works just fine.

Apart from the packaging, it doesn’t come with any type of pouch or storage.  Since it’s so compact, you could easily fold it and store in a sandwich bag, small container, or something similar and put with your other adult products.


Untitled-2The G-Spot Labia Spreader comes shrink wrapped inside a small cardboard box.  The packaging isn’t at all discreet and isn’t very tasteful either.  It features an image of a topless woman on both the front and back, but does include a fair amount of useful information as well.  When you open it, Untitled-1the spreader is inside a flimsy plastic tray and there’s a generic manual with it as well.  It’s in several languages, but seems like the same manual is put inside all the You 2 Toys products.  It would have been nice to have more specific information, but it’s pretty easy to understand thanks to the illustrations on the box.


Over the past three years I’ve tried many interesting adult products, but the G-Spot Labia Spreader was a first for me.  I’ve never used a speculum before and this seemed like the right product to try out before diving into the more medical looking devices.

I was immediately impressed with the simplicity of the product but questioned how it would really hold up during use.  It seemed to stay in place well as I was holding it, but I wasn’t sure how well it would work for me.  I’m a larger lady and my biggest concern was whether or not being plus sized would effect use.

My husband and I thought this might work best for oral sex, since he often uses his hand to spread my labia apart.  We put it in place and were both surprised by how well it truly did spread everything apart.  It easily exposed my clitoris which was exactly what I was hoping for.  While he was pleasuring me, I could feel a huge difference.  The inserted part of the toy was gently moving against my G-spot, and not having his hands pressing against me kept my focus on his mouth.  It was hugely intense and I loved how it felt!

Unfortunately, he didn’t like it as much.  He told me after that he felt it was ‘in the way‘ and he couldn’t move around as much as he normally does.  It was different for him to have something that close to his face during oral sex and he said it was a little annoying to him.

He wanted no part in trying to have sex while it was inserted, so I tested it on my own during masturbation.  I thought it was awesome paired with clitoral stimulation, but didn’t feel like it worked as well when I used a dildo.  It kept catching and wasn’t staying in place like it should have.  I would imagine actual intercourse would work better (especially with ample lubricant) but I didn’t think it worked well for use with a dildo.

For specific uses, I thought it was great!  It’s something I’ll be using here and there during masturbation and will have to try talking my husband into using it more during oral sex.  It holds the labia back extremely well, is very unassuming, and completely adjustable; it’s worth checking out!

If you’re interested in trying out the G-spot Labia Spreader or perhaps a more advanced speculum, you can find them at UberKinky.

The Mea Culpa Silicone Whip from Sex and Metal

- Gorgeous design
- Handcrafted
- Well made
- Safe, easy to clean materials
- Provides different sensations
- Quite large/harder to store
- Learning curve for use
- Might be too intimidating/intense for some




The Mea Culpa from Sex and Metal is a silicone whip that’s sure to put you in your place.  Mea Culpa is a noun that is “a statement in which you say that something is your fault”.  Whether you’re in a dom/sub relationship or simply enjoy a little punishment in your play, this whip is bound to correct your bad behavior.

The force behind the impact is totally up to you.  Lighter slaps are great to start with, but it’s not difficult to build up to stronger blows.  The sensations can range from hard thuds, to sharp stinging sensations depending on how the impact is delivered.  The handle itself was not designed to be inserted into the body, but the ball on the end can be used as a massage aid.  It’s easy to apply pressure where you need it, either before or after your delicious punishment; making it fairly versatile.

The overall design of the whip is very bold looking, but can be used by and on any gender, in any type of relationship.  It’s likely to intimidate beginners based on the look and size alone, but will work for anyone who feels adventurous.  If you purchase The Mea Culpa and end up feeling too intimidated by it, you can always use it as a prop in some sexy boudoir photos for your special someone.


All the products available from Sex and Metal are handcrafted by artisans and built to last.  The Mea Culpa is made from silicone and raw steel, bringing you a sharp sting and a striking handle.  Silicone is a body-safe material that doesn’t contain latex or phthalates, and is non-porous.  You can safely use it on any area of the body, and easily share if properly cleaned.  For regular use you can wipe the end down with a toy wipe or cleaner, or carefully wash with antibacterial soap and warm water.  If it comes in contact with bodily fluids, you can also clean it with a 10% bleach solution to disinfect.   As with any silicone item, use caution around silicone lubricants since they sometimes don’t react well to each other and could potentially damage the surface of the whip.


Untitled-3The silicone part of the whip has a shiny surface that slides easily across your skin.  It does attract very fine dust/dirt that makes it appear more gray in color than black (if you chose the black silicone when making your purchase), but washes off easily.  There’s a lot of flex and movement to this area, which is important because of its purpose.  It sort of sags when you hold the whip straight, and the end itself folds at least a little no matter how you’re holding it.

Untitled-4The handle is polished steel which is coated with a clear finish to bring out the natural beauty of the piece.  Surrounding it are three rows of twisted metal which not only adorn it, but help keep your grip during use.  These small details don’t strongly effect use, but certainly make a statement.  Each row is welded onto the handle prior to being clear coated, making them impossible to break off and totally smooth in your hand.  Being handcrafted, you can naturally Untitled-7see the weld marks and they don’t look perfect.  That being said, I actually really enjoy the way it looks; sometimes small imperfections truly add to the overall appearance.

At the top of the handle are two pieces that look like spikes.  These are in place not only to look aggressive, but to hold the silicone strongly in place.  It’s very well done and would be difficult to accidentally damage or cause it to come apart.  The center of the silicone feels like there’s a thick tube inside (at the base where it connects with the handle) that prevents the entire length from sagging.


This bad boy was designed to look fierce!  I’ve seen a variety of different whips, but I’ve never seen anything quite like this.  The rolled silicone is something totally new to me and is called Dragon’s Tongue.  When you look at it and feel the fiery sting, it’s obvious why it has that title.  The tip of the whip comes to a point, and when you flick your wrist the right way, it sends a burning sting wherever it connects to the body.


Sex and Metal gives you two options for silicone colors (Black or White) and two options for your handle (Natural Steel, or Candy Apple Red); giving you a choice to best match your tastes.  I love the look of steel and love black, so those were the options I chose.  As you can see from comparing my personal photos to the ones on the website, each product will differ slightly since they’re each handcrafted.  There were two obvious differences with mine.  The ball on the end of the one I Untitled-8received is a darker color than the handle and doesn’t have the same surface design.  It doesn’t change usability and doesn’t take away from the appearance.  The other difference are the weld marks being on the back of the handle, which actually enhances the appearance.

The size of The Mea Culpa is a little surprising when you first have it in your hands.  Though the site has the size information directly on the product page, it’s a totally different experience holding it in your hands.  The full length of this whip is 29 1/4″; 9″ for the handle and 20 1/4″ for the Dragon’s Tongue.  It only differs slightly from the measurements provided, but is very common with handcrafted products and doesn’t change the way it functions.

With the handle being made from steel, it’s no surprise there’s some weight to this whip.  It’s quite solid, but takes a while for your arm to grow tired from use.



After browsing the Sex and Metal website for what seemed like hours, I was finally able to come up with a short (okay, fine…it’s long) list of products I have to have from them.  The Mea Culpa was the first whip that made it onto the list; with the Dragon’s Tongue silicone and the gorgeous handle, I couldn’t resist!

It shipped quickly and arrived in a plain brown box that’s completely discreet.  I actually had to pause for a moment to think what it might be.  When I opened it up, the silicone was simply folded over and placed inside as is.  There was nothing surrounding it apart from some brown paper that prevented it from moving around during shipment.

My first impression of the whip was shock.  Though the size is stated on the product page, it was very surprising at first to see it in person.  Once that shock wore off, I couldn’t get over how stunning it was!  The sexy black silicone, the smooth steel handle, and the gorgeous twisted metal surrounding it.  My husband’s reaction was equally priceless; eyes growing wide, tracing his fingers over every detail, and mentioning how ‘bad ass’ it was.  Yeah, we were excited to try it out!

My husband and I aren’t in a dom/sub relationship and don’t participate in much of anything that looks like BDSM.  That being said, we recently discovered the fun of impact play and have been testing the waters.  We’ve tried a variety of paddles and some super cheap crops, but this was the first whip we’d ever used.

I told him to ease me into it, since I was quite unsure how extreme the whip would be.  He listened well and I was surprised at how loud the slap sounded, without causing pain.  He went easy on me a few times and asked if I was ready for more.  The next few blows were much harder, but he was still learning how to use the whip.  Rather than snapping his wrist back and catching me with the tip, he was hitting me solidly with the thicker part of the silicone.  It created a very ‘thuddy’ sensation that was manageable.  As he continued, he learned how to really snap it, and that’s when I really started feeling what this whip can do.

Naturally my husband is, perhaps unintentionally, more gentle with me than he needs to be.  Be loves me and doesn’t want to hurt me, so I think it’s harder for him to really hit me hard in general.  With that said, I think he’s starting to get over that a little bit.  When the tip of the silicone connects with your skin in just the right way, it literally feels like it slices you.  This was a new sensation for me.  I’ve felt an overwhelming burn from paddles before, I’ve felt stings, but never have I felt like something cut into my body.

I loved it!

Untitled-9When we were finished, I reached around and rubbed my warmed skin.  I could feel welts where the silicone hit perfectly, and we both were pleased with the results.  This photo was taken about ten minutes after we were finished, so some of the red had already started to fade.  The welts lasted a bit longer, probably thirty minutes to an hour, but didn’t cause me discomfort while I was sitting down.  Obviously the harder you’re hit, the longer the sensation will last, but I was extremely pleased with the results we personally had.  If you have a partner you totally trust, it really doesn’t matter if you’re new to impact play or not.  Being able to ease into it was key for us, and we couldn’t be more pleased with our experience!

The Amazing Web Shooter from Doc Johnson

- Made from silicone
- Unique and fun design
- Appeals to a different audience
- Extreme texture could cause discomfort
- Minor surface issues from mold
- Doesn’t come with storage




The Amazing Web Shooter from the Super Hung Heroes line by Doc Johnson looks like it could be the shaft of Spiderman himself!  Covered in an amazing pattern, this dildo is not only interesting to look at, but the prominent webs fulfill a texture lover’s cravings.

Though the color isn’t flesh tone and the surface is highly textured, the shape itself is quite familiar.  The shaft has a wonderful curve that helps it connect with the G-spot or P-spot and the large base at the bottom makes it harness compatible and anal safe.  It doesn’t matter what gender you are or what your sexual orientation is, this dildo has a use for just about anyone.

The bottom is totally flat and has neither a suction cup or bullet hole.  If you want to make this dildo vibrate, you could simply place a vibrating cock ring at the base of the shaft and use it as you normally would.  And since there are no internal working parts, you can take it with you into the tub or shower without worrying about any water leaking inside of it.


Untitled-7The Amazing Web Shooter is made from silicone which is a great material for a sex toy because it’s non-porous, latex free, phthalate free, and easy to clean and care for.  Silicone toys are available in a wide range of firmness levels as well, which means they can be very squishy or quite hard.  This particular dildo is a medium firmness, having a fair amount of give while remaining easy to thrust with.


The surface is matte and covered in a texture that reminds me of canvas.  It has a rough look to it, but doesn’t feel rough against your skin.  It does have drag (which causes it to pick up some lint as well) and requires a lot of lubricant, but is smoother to the touch than it looks.

Untitled-5Along with that surface texture, is a very prominent web-like design.  This creates a very extreme texture that isn’t for the faint of heart.  Every line is exaggerated and can be felt during use.  This will either be a positive thing (if you’re a texture lover) or a negative (if you prefer smoother toys).  The bottom side of the shaft (toward the top) has a spider within the web that’s puffed out a little more than the rest of the texture.  It has an interesting look and really ties the whole theme together.

I did notice a couple small areas of the toy where the mold wasn’t perfect.  They are very small and don’t effect use, but can be seen.  A couple areas look like the surface was flattened, and there are a few tiny places where it look like chunks were taken out (about the size of a pencil tip).


The design of The Amazing Web Shooter is where it really shines.  The whole Super Hung Heroes line features dildos based on comic book characters, how cool is that?  This particular one is obviously based on Spiderman.  Its vibrant red color and web pattern really pop and make it stand out from the rest.

The base of the dildo features a large mound which represents the testicles, and the tip has a great curve to it.  The texture covers the entire toy, tip to base, which is fairly unique.  Though the color and texture aren’t realistic, the shape definitely is.  There’s no denying this is a dildo.


The length of the dildo is really reasonable and isn’t likely to cause discomfort when thrusting, but the girth isn’t beginner friendly.  Though it’s not a huge toy, the texture makes it feel much larger than it is.  It’s 7″ long with an insertable length of 5 1/4″ and ranges in girth from 4 3/4″ at the thinnest to 6″ at the thickest point.

It’s a fairly heavy dildo which is both a positive and a negative.  You can set it down on a flat surface and ride it pretty easily without having to hold it in place since it has such a large base, but your arms might also get tired more easily when you thrust it.



Caring for The Amazing Web Shooter is pretty basic considering it’s made from silicone.  You can easily clean it with antibacterial soap and warm water or your favorite sex toy cleaner after use.  When you remove the toy, you’ll likely see stuff pooled inside the webbed areas, so be prepared for that.  If you clean it right away it’s really easy, but if you wait you’ll need to use a soft bristled tooth brush to get into all the small areas.  If you’re sharing with a partner or switching orifices, it’s important to sterilize the dildo between use.  You can do so by boiling for three minutes, cleaning it with a 10% bleach solution, or placing it on the top rack of your dishwasher.

Being made from silicone, it’s important to use only a water-based lubricant with the toy.  Other types could cause the surface to have a negative reaction, so it’s best to stick with what you know is safe to use.

The toy doesn’t come with storage apart from the actual package itself, so unless you’re going to put it on display, you might want to find something else.  A large storage pouch or a plastic Ziploc would work fine.


The Amazing Web Shooter arrives in a thin cardboard box.  It’s not discreet thanks to the wording and images on it, but the design looks like it was taken straight from a naughty comic book.  It has all the information you need to know about the product and has the company name boldly on it.  There’s no additional information inside the package, and your Web Shooter is simply inside a plastic bag.



When I first saw the Super Hung Heroes line I thought it was really creative and filled a void in the sex toy world.  I’m not a big comic book fan myself, but I can see this line being something of interest to a variety of people.  The Amazing Web Shooter was too cool looking NOT to try it out, and loving texture I thought it would be a great fit for me.

Did I say I love texture?  Now I’m wondering how true that is.

The first time I used the dildo, I only applied a little lube and tried to insert it without any success.  I had to add way more than normal just to get it in, and once it was I experienced nothing but discomfort and had to stop.  Okay, so I have some days where my body just isn’t into texture.  Or at least that’s what I thought.

The next time I tried it, I made sure I was nicely warmed up and really into it.  I made sure I applied plenty of lube and tried to push my first experience out of my mind.  No matter how I used it, how much lube I applied, or how ready I was, it caused discomfort.  I tried to press through it to see if I just needed to get used to it first, but I only ended up in pain as a result.  The material has a lot of give to it, but the texture is just too much for me.  I felt sore for hours after using it, and have no intentions on trying again.

If you truly love texture or think this is just a neat novelty item, I’d say it’s worth checking out.  But if you like smooth toys or light texture, this will likely be too much for you.  Just because it didn’t work for me, doesn’t mean you’ll have the same result.  Pay attention to the measurements, and know your body.  If you crave texture, this might be just what you’re looking for.

The Big Book of Orgasms


-The Facts-

Title: The Big Book of Orgasms – 69 Sexy Stories
Authors: Various (Edited by Rachael Kramer Bussel)
Publishing Company: Cleis Press
Trade Paper
ISBN 978-1-57344-963-2
5 x 7, 384 pages

The Big Book of Orgasms is a sexy anthology overflowing with short stories that focus entirely on one thing; orgasm.  We all climax in different ways, and achieve that glorious peak differently each time the desire arises.  This book reflects hugely on that, featuring stories that are as unique as your own pleasure and your own way of building up to it.

When I first received the book, I wondered how each story could truly be different from the next since there’s only one topic.  I guess when you compile 69 stories from 69 individuals it brings quite a variety of tastes to the table.  Each story is about five pages long and only takes a few minutes to read.  It’s easy to tell yourself you’ll read just one story and end up blowing through five of them!   They’re all to the point, but easily draw you in.

No matter what kind of relationship you have or if you’re even in one, there’s at least a handful of stories in this book that will spark your interest.  Many of the stories will probably resemble your own fantasies (that you may or may not ever act upon), but some might also inspire new desires within yourself.  The variety is refreshing; having stories centered around solo climax, public orgasms, sweet and sensual experiences, dark and fierce, and many more.  

What surprised me most about this book was how well written every story is.  Nothing turns me off more than a steamy story turning corny because of the way it’s worded.  This book was proof that well written erotic anthologies exist, and are worth investing time into reading them.  Some of the stories are fairly predictable, many will surprise you, but all of them are sure to heat things up and help you create a story of your own.

I highly recommend checking out The Big Book of Orgasms because it’s easy to read, is super sexy, and can be worked into anyone’s time schedule.  Whether you read it alone or read it aloud to help spice up foreplay, it’s the perfect bedside companion!

Hippocampus from Exotic-Erotics

- Unique design
- Can be customized
- Made from silicone
- Wonderful texture
- Comes with storage pouch
- None




A Hippocampus is a mythological creature that’s a cross between a horse and a sea monster, and thanks to Exotic-Erotics, you have the opportunity to experience what this sexy beast has to offer!

Covered in texture and curved to please, this dildo was designed to caress and awaken your inner pleasure spots.  The tip of the toy is easy to insert and the bulged area at the bottom of the head does an amazing job of connecting with the G-spot.  Since the base is nice and large, it eliminates any concern about the toy getting lost inside of you, making it suitable for anal play as well.  How well this dildo connects with your G-spot or P-spot will depend entirely on your own anatomy, but the texture is pretty amazing even if it doesn’t.

The base makes it comfortable to hold and easy to use, but isn’t the most harness friendly dildo because of the girth.  The smallest size would be much more reasonable, but the other two would be harder to find an o-ring large enough.  That being said, one of the customizing options is to have a suction cup base.  The base makes it easier to use the dildo in the shower, on the floor, and even on regular walls.


The Hippocampus is made from silicone which is a body safe, non-porous, latex free, and phthalate free material.  It’s a fantastic material for sex toys because it’s easy to clean and care for and can be made in a wide range of firmness levels.

Untitled-10The surface of this dildo is matte to the touch but has a light shine to it.  It does attract lint and hairs, but the drag is easy to manage and takes only a small amount of lubricant to help it glide easily.  This has to be one of the best feeling silicone toys I’ve ever touched!

The textured details are truly impressive!  There are scales toward the bottom of the shaft and on the base, very light ribs along the bottom of the shaft, and puffy swirled areas along the top and sides.  It’s truly stunning to look at, and feels even more amazing in use!

The firmness level will all depend on what you select when making your Untitled-4purchase.  For mine, I chose a Medium Shaft/Hard Base split.  I absolutely love how squishy the shaft is, and literally wish I would walk around holding it all day.  Stress balls need to be made from this silicone, because it just feels that amazing!  I can only slightly feel the difference between the shaft and base when in my hands, but would imagine the difference helps when utilizing the suction cup (which you’ll learn more about in the Customizing section).  The material easily flexes and gives, while remaining solid enough to easily thrust with.



The Hippocampus is one gorgeous dildo!  It has some familiar elements to it, but is mostly unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.  The tip of the head comes to a soft point and has a small impression in it that resembles a urethral opening, but the rest of the head is a unique shape; having a dip in the center and bulging again before connecting with the shaft.  It’s not so prominent it causes a popping sensation during use, but the shaft is sure to make up for that.  As soon as you insert the toy, you’re met with delicious texture which covers the entire length, even the top of the base.


Each area of texture comes together to form a really stimulating experience.  How obvious the texture feels will depend on the firmness level you chose; it’s prominent enough without being irritating in the medium firmness, but would probably still be way too much for someone that prefers smoother toys.

Untitled-6My dildo is a size medium and isn’t suitable for beginners and those that can only use slender toys.  Even the small Hippocampus is larger than average; making this toy wonderful for the size kings and queens, but too large for many.  It’s very important to check the exact measurements to see which size will be suitable for you.  Mine is 10 1/2″ in total length, with 8 1/2″ being insertable.  If you decide to have yours made with a suction cup (which I highly recommend), this length is reasonable, though a bit on the long side when you use the full length.  Just use caution since it can uncomfortable bump the cervix.  The girth of the medium ranges from a very reasonable 5″ around the tip, and varies through the shaft because of the texture.  Midshaft is 7″ and the widest area (at the base of the shaft)  is 8″ in circumference.  Also keep in mind, just because one dildo is a size medium, doesn’t mean every dildo in a medium is the same size.  See both my medium Elephant Trunk and medium Hippocampus for example.



One of the great things about Exotic-Erotics, is that they offer a variety of sizes, firmness levels, color options, and on some, suction cups.

Untitled-12-Sizes – There are three sizes available for the Hippocampus; smallmedium, and large.  I chose the medium because I often enjoy a fuller feeling when using dildos.  The size difference between each of them is quite different.  If the small seems too small for you, the medium may be too large.  Make sure you take a good look at the measurements provided on the site before making your choice.

-Firmness - Deciding on size and firmness sort of go hand in hand.  The larger the toy, the softer you probably want it to be.  You have six options to choose from.

  • Soft
  • Medium
  • Hard
  • Medium Shaft/Hard Base (+$10)
  • Soft Shaft/Hard Base (+$10)
  • Soft Shaft/Medium Base (+$10)

If you’re unsure about which firmness is right for you, Exotic-Erotics offers a $5 sample set that will give you the best idea before making your purchase.  If you choose to try out the sample set first and end up making a purchase, they’ll take the $5 you spent and put it toward the purchase you make.

Untitled-9-Suction Cup - Not all products from Exotic-Erotics have this as an option, but the Hippocampus does.  For an additional charge of $5 you can have a suction cup put in the base of your toy.  It’s not extended from the bottom like on some dildos, but is a hollowed out circle in the center.  If you’ve ever used a Bad Dragon toy with a suction cup, it’s similar to that, but doesn’t make up the whole base like they do.

Untitled-8The suction cup is extremely strong and works well on any flat surface.  Normally I’ve found dildos with suction cups primarily work in the shower and only a few other surfaces.  I tried the Hippocampus on many different areas and was extremely impressed with the result.  It stays solidly in place for extended periods of time and holds strong during use.

-Color Options – There’s a wide range of color options available for your Hippocampus, especially when you consider the fact you have both a shaft color and a base color to decide.  It can be a little overwhelming, but fun experience to choose your colors.  I chose the Seafoam Green shaft with a Yellow base, but you can let your imagination run wild.

Shaft colors:

  • Natural Markings (seafoam green/grey) (+$10)
  • Custom (no fades) (+$5)
  • Florescent Blue

  • Yellow (+$10)


Included in your package is a card that gives you the run down on how to care for your dildo and is sent with every box you receive from Exotic-Erotics.  Though there’s a lot of texture to the surface of the Hippocampus, it’s easy to clean and was made to last a long time if you follow the care instructions.



When you’re customizing your dildo, there’s a box you can check to receive a free storage pouch that’s handmade to fit the size and shape of the dildo you purchased.  The pouches are nicely made and have a drawstring closure.  You don’t get to choose the color or anything like that, but it’s a wise choice since it’s difficult to find a pouch that will fit some of the larger sized dildos.

Your Exotic-Erotics dildo will arrive in a plain brown box that doesn’t reveal the awesomeness it contains.  When you open it up, your dildo will be sealed in a plastic bag and inside the storage pouch if you checked the appropriate box.  Prior to opening the plastic packaging, make sure you check that you received the correct item, since you can’t exchange or return it once opened.



Untitled-11The first dildo that caught my attention from Exotic-Erotics was the Hippocampus.  There was just something about the flowing texture and wonderful shape that made me lust over it, quite literally.  I loved the beautiful Seafoam Green coloring of the shaft, but wanted to give it a lighter colored base and chose the Yellow for that.  Being able to choose the coloring, firmness, etc. truly makes every dildo unique and able to fit your specific needs.

When my Hippocampus arrived, I couldn’t wait to open it up and check it out!  It felt so amazing in my hands; the perfect firmness for my tastes, and a great size to fit the days I want a really full feeling.  I could tell it was going to impress me from the second I touched it!

When I was testing it out, I tried using the suction cup on a variety of surfaces and was shocked at how strongly it held, even on regular walls, and decided that was the first way I would test it out.  I pressed it down against by bedroom wall, applied some lube, and backed up against it.  It took a little figuring out to get things lined up, but once I did, WOW!  Feeling the unique texture, being insanely full, thrusting myself against the wall; I was overwhelmed with pleasure!  I added my go-to clit vibe and had such a powerful orgasm I had a hard time keeping the dildo inside while my muscles clenched down around it.

Laying on my back during use was equally pleasurable, but my hands and arms got a little tired after a while since the dildo is fairly heavy due to its weight.  The suction cup on the base is a life saver and is more than worth spending the extra $5 on.

Without question, this is in my top 10 favorite toys I’ve ever used.  It’s worth looking into, especially if you like larger toys that are full of interesting texture!  Exotic-Erotics got it spot on with this one!!
