June marks my first big blogging milestone; my one year anniversary. Over the past year, I’ve reviewed over 100 products from many amazing sponsors. Some were (honestly) pretty awful, but others really stole the spotlight! I’ve had the pleasure of working with amazing artisans, wonderful US based companies, and regular people starting their own little corner of the sex toy world. It has been a pleasure (pun intended) to test out and review so many products, and I want you to get the chance to try out some of my favorites from this past year!
If you’ve read any of my reviews, you already know that patterned vibrations aren’t really my thing. Typically when a vibrator has a variety of settings, I immediately find the highest steady vibration and bust out an orgasm (or two). So naturally, it might come as a surprise to know that I absolutely love the Ola from Minna Life! This vibe has really impressed me, both with the way it functions, and how versatile it is. Since Ola is so easy to use, I’m able to not only effortlessly pleasure myself, but I can hand it over to my husband to use as he pleases (it’s great for foreplay and teasing!). Not only can I have the strong, steady vibrations I love, but we can also create all the unique patterns our little hearts desire – every time we use it!
Minna Life has been generous enough to provide you with a chance to win your very own Ola! Interested in what else Minna Life has to offer? You can find them on Twitter, Facebook, and can sign up for their newsletter by visiting the website. This product is being shipped directly from Minna Life and is open Worldwide (if outside of US a shipping fee is required).
External stimulation is a must if I’m going to feel truly satisfied, and it’s a common need for many. Not all vibes are created equal, so it’s important to find one that will suit your specific needs; or is it? Every once in a while you come across a vibe that provides enough variety that it’s safe to say it should work for most people, and that’s what I found in the Leaf Life+. This vibe is an upgraded version of the original Leaf by Swan, having many of the same great qualities, but sporting a new color along with some positive changes. The design itself provides both broad and pin-point stimulation depending on how you use it, and the vibration settings make it a great choice whether you enjoy steady vibrations, patterns, or both. Add the portability, ergonomic shape, and ease of use and it’s easy to see how this became a favorite!
SheVibe is one awesome shop that’s both full of great products, and is fun to explore (just check out the artwork!)! They’re kindly providing a Leaf Life+ to one lucky winner! Make sure to visit their website to find more awesome goodies, and look them up on both Twitter and Facebook! This product is being shipped directly from SheVibe and is open to winners in US and CA only.
It’s not uncommon for couples to seek out products that will bring a little extra heat between the sheets. What better than a vibe that can be worn during intercourse and used hands free? That’s where the We-Vibe 3 comes into play. This remote controlled vibe not only adds increased sensation, but keeps things intimate by freeing up your hands and keeping your focus entirely on your partner. Though designed to be used together, this toy can also be used for hands free solo pleasure, or with the addition of a dildo or second vibrator. It’s a fantastic product that both my husband and I have enjoyed, and we hope others will as well!
We-Vibe has graciously provided you with the chance to win a We-Vibe 3 of your very own! Be sure to check out their website and sign up for their newsletter while you’re there, and don’t forget to look for them on Facebook and Twitter! This product is being shipped directly from We-Vibe and is open Worldwide.
Sometimes I really want to get off, but wish I could be lazy about it. It can be a real pain bending awkwardly to thrust with one hand while holding a vibe in the other (oh, the struggles of masturbating comfortably). Honestly, this sometimes prevents me from using a dildo because some products are just too short to easily use with a vibe in my other hand. Fortunately, Tantus has you covered! This awesome company features a variety of dildos, with handles. The Echo Handle makes masturbation so much more comfortable since the added length allows me to lay back and enjoy! Solo time is much more comfortable, and it works so much easier in the hands of a partner as well!
Tantus is super amazing and has provided you with the opportunity to win your very own Grab Bag Echo Handle! This uniquely colored dildo is one of a kind, and is a fantastic addition to anyone’s collection! Visit the Tantus website to sign up for their newsletter, and look for them on Facebook and Twitter. This product is being shipped by me and is open Worldwide (if outside of US a shipping fee is required).
Glass products are not only gorgeous, but they’re available in so many different textures and shapes that it’s difficult to select the right one for you. One of the things I appreciate most about the Blue Moon from A Touch of Glass, is the fact that it’s double sided. One end provides a gently raised spiral that’s extremely stimulating, while the other features a fantastic bubbled texture. If you’re unsure of what you like, or love a little variety, the Blue Moon is a safe option since the textures aren’t extreme. This one might look simple, but it honestly surprised me; I have a feeling one of you will feel the same way!
A Touch of Glass is a quality company that was kind enough to provide you with the chance to win your own Blue Moon! Be sure to visit their website to check out their other awesome pieces, and look for them on Facebook and Twitter. This product is being shipped directly from A Touch of Glass and is open Worldwide.
When it comes to realistic dildos, you don’t need to look further than Vixen Creations. The details are impressive, and their Vixskin line is the closest thing to an actual penis I’ve ever felt. After using my first dildo from them, I was hooked. They’re so fun to squish and squeeze, but really shine when it comes to use. Vixskin Buck is a favorite to many, and it’s no surprise the reason why. It features a prominent head (great if you love a popping sensation when thrust), a detailed shaft, and can be used in a variety of different ways. I love that the length is reasonable and it’s thick enough to provide me with a nice full sensation. Trust me, you need some Vixskin in your life!
Peepshow Toys is a great company that features only body safe products. They’ve generously given you the opportunity to win a Vixskin Buck in your choice of color (Vanilla, Caramel, or Chocolate)! Make sure to stop by their website, sign up for their newsletter, and look for them on Facebook and Twitter. This product is being shipped directly from Peepshow Toys and is open Worldwide (if outside of US a shipping fee is required).
Maybe realistic looking dildos just aren’t your thing, they certainly aren’t right for everyone. Perhaps you’re looking to expand your horizons and want something that looks and feels different from what you’re used to. That’s where the Hippocampus from Exotic-Erotics comes in. This dildo was an easy favorite, and might just be the only product I’ve reviewed that didn’t feature a ‘con’. From the moment I saw it on their website, I knew I had to have it! The details on this toy are impressive and the overall look (in my opinion) makes it one of the most attractive silicone dildos I’ve ever seen. That’s not even including use! If fantasy products are your thing (or unique items) you need one of these in your life (you can thank me later!).
Exotic-Erotics really stepped up on this one! Not only are they offering one Hippocampus for this giveaway, they’re offering TWO. Both are natural coloring, but are different sizes. One is their new small size, and the other is medium (formerly small). Please check out this size chart to decide which one is right for you, since there will be two lucky winners who will receive a Hippocampus! Be sure to check out the other awesome creations on their website, and find them on twitter! These products are being shipped directly from Exotic-Erotics and are open to US only.
To some, fluffy pink handcuffs and flimsy plastic crops are children’s play. With 50 Shades of everything taking the world by storm, it seems cheap, light BDSM gear is drowning us all. Yes, these items might be great for beginners, but what about those that want some actual bite behind their impact toys? Yet again, Tantus provides! Their silicone paddles are serious, and will provide the intensity many are seeking. After reviewing a few of their paddles, I came to the decision that they’re all equally bad-ass and will put you in your place! The Thwack Paddle isn’t one I’ve personally reviewed, but it’s very similar to the Plunge Paddle, and I feel confident it’s equally as aggressive as well!
Burlesque Toy Shop is another awesome company that features only the very best body safe products available. They’ve generously given you the opportunity to win your very own Thwack Paddle! Make sure you stop by their website, sign up for their newsletter, and look for them on Facebook and Twitter! This product is being shipped directly from Burlesque Toy Shop and is open to US and CA.
Perhaps one of the strangest items I reviewed this past year was more of a tool than a toy, but became an essential item to have on hand. The G-spot Labia Spreader from You 2 Toys is essential if your clitoris doesn’t easily come out to play. Being the voluptuous woman I am, I often have to hold my labia apart with one hand in order to easily access my clit with the other. This is both uncomfortable and frustrating to me. Pleasure should always be enjoyable and comfortable, and that’s where this gem shines! I can easily sit back, toy in use, without worrying about my other hand having to spread my labia apart. This might not be the best product for pleasure on its own, but it’s a fantastic tool that leads to more pleasure-filled experiences!
UberKinky has some really unique and interesting products (obviously geared toward kinksters, though there are other items as well), and they’ve been kind enough to give you the opportunity to win a G-Spot Labia Spreader of your own! Take a moment to visit their website, sign up for their newsletter, and look for them on Facebook and Twitter. This product is being shipped by me and is open Worldwide (if outside of US a shipping fee is required).
Having a discreet place to store your toys can be extremely important if you have roommates or nosy children. It’s not always easy, especially if you’re living with expert snoopers. Fortunately, Holistic Wisdom created a product specifically for this reason; the Sneaky Sack. When I first saw the Sneaky Sack, it was a total duh! moment. This perfectly designed bag hangs discreetly on a hanger in your closet underneath some fugly article of clothing you never touch. No one would ever think to look for something interesting there! It’s a truly amazing idea! No, it’s not the largest sex toy storage option available, but it’s certainly the most unique and discreet option I’ve ever seen.
Tabu Toys has very generously given you the chance to win a Sneaky Sack of your own! Check out their website, sign up for their newsletter, and look for them on Facebook and Twitter. This product is being shipped directly from Tabu Toys and is open to US only.
A little sexy reading can get your blood pumping and certainly has the potential of increasing your pleasure experiences. The Big Book of Orgasms: 69 Sexy Stories from Cleis Press (edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel) offers 69 sexy stories all focused on the main event; orgasm. It’s truly surprising how unique each story is, especially when you consider the fact that they’re all centered around the same topic. These bite sized stories can be read one at a time (if you have good self control) or several at once, on your own or with a partner. I absolutely love this book for a variety of reasons, and would recommend checking it out for yourself!
Cleis Press is a fantastic publishing company that’s always coming out with new and exciting books. They’ve sponsored many of my giveaways (with more to come) and provided me with The Big Book of Orgasms to give away to one lucky winner! Check out their website (which is full of sexy reading), sign up for their newsletter, and look for them on Facebook and Twitter. This item is being shipped from me and is open Worldwide (if outside of US a shipping fee is required).
