G-Buzz from from the Crystal Collection by Oro Vidri is an elegant glass dildo that’s both beautiful to look at and stimulating in use.  Designed with the female anatomy in mind, G-buzz is dual ended, providing two different ends to suit your changing tastes.  The curved end is a bit thicker and works well for G-spot stimulation, while the thinner end is straight and keeps the focus on the amazing texture of the toy.

Oro Vidri has several toys that are great for anal play, but G-Buzz is best suited for vaginal use.  While it could be used anally, you would have to be very careful since there’s nothing to prevent the toy from slipping inside of you.  Additionally, the texture might be too much for most anal players, so it’s best to select a more appropriate toy if you’re interested in purchasing something for backdoor stimulation.

Though G-Buzz is great for solo play, it’s also a great tool to use with your partner.  The texture of the dildo makes it easy to hold onto, even with lubed hands, and doesn’t take a lot of effort to create a satisfying experience for your lover.  Be careful not to thrust too hard, the material is rigid and could cause some discomfort if you get too aggressive with it.  Always follow your partner’s cues to make sure they’re enjoying the stimulation you’re providing.

Temperature play is always a great way to add another sensation to your playtime.  The G-Buzz can be heated up or cooled down for another added sensation, but it’s important to follow the instructions Oro Vidri provides to ensure nothing bad happens to your glass toy.  The information is available on their website, but your package will include a sheet explaining the same thing.


Untitled-9G-Buzz is a true work of art and is one of the most attractive glass dildos I’ve ever seen.  This particular glass is ”hand made from refined glass that is comprised of 25-50% recycled glass.  The glass is melted down at 2200 degrees Fahrenheit before it’s gathered up by the artisan and rolled though gold or silver and then shaped to perfection.” according to Oro Vidri.  It’s hypoallergenic, non-porous, latex free, phthalate free, and every bit as body safe as other glass toys.  It’s very clear and though there are some small bubbles inside of it, has an amazingly pure look and feel to it.

Untitled-5The texture of this toy is where it truly shines. If you don’t like textured toys than this won’t be the right choice for you.  However, Oro Vidri is sure to have something that will better suit your needs.

The entire piece looks like it was once double the length before being folded in half and twisted; creating a shallow bumpy sensation when thrust.  If that wasn’t enough, there’s a soft vertical ribbed texture that is perfectly formed within the twisted glass.  The ribs aren’t felt as much as the twists, but are still quite stimulating.  Both ends are slightly smooth at the tips, but apart from that, this beautiful piece is completely covered in amazing texture!


When you purchase a product from Oro Vidri, expect to receive the highest quality piece of glass you’ve ever touched.  I don’t know what it is about their products, but they feel so luxurious and the attention to detail is truly impressive.  Every piece of glass is hand crafted and though that makes each one slightly different, it also shows the dedication and pride they take in their work.  This isn’t just some company mass producing products, they are artisans creating beautiful pieces of functional art.


G-Buzz starts out straight, but curves up nicely into a larger bulbous area that hugs perfectly against the G-spot.  The opposite end is straight and is thin enough that users of almost any experience level should be able to handle it.  If you’re not used to any type of penetration at all it might be a bit much, but only because it’s also very textured.  The curved end is very comfortable and easy to hold while you’re thrusting, but the other end is easy to grip as well thanks to the textured surface.

The Crystal Collection features dildos that don’t contain any gold or silver flake inside of them, like the Maseo I previously reviewed.  While you might assume the dildo doesn’t seem as beautiful because of that, it’s the design that makes it shine.  This line is supposed to resemble cut crystal, and truly doesn’t need the shimmer because of it (though the Lush line is equally beautiful!).

The full length of my G-Buzz is 8″ (not measuring along the curve) and can be inserted about 7″ while still being able to hold onto the toy.  The smaller end starts out at 3″ in circumference and only gets slightly larger the closer you get to the curved end, getting only about 1/4″ wider.  The larger end, though appearing much larger than the opposite side, is only 3 7/8″ around.  Keep in mind that the twists in the dildo make the sizing look and feel a little different than a dildo that’s totally smooth.



Cleaning and caring for the G-Buzz does take a little more work than some toys, but it’s totally worth it!  For regular use, make sure to clean the toy before and after with an antibacterial soap and warm water.  Because there are so many little areas for stuff to get trapped, using a soft bristled toothbrush to clean between the ribs and twists in a good idea.

If you’re planning on sharing or wish to sanitize your toy for another reason you can also clean it using a 10% bleach solution.  You shouldn’t boil or place your toy in the dishwasher since that could cause damage to to it.  Oro Vidri lays it all out on their website, and also includes this information with your purchase.

Being made from glass is great when it comes to choosing a lubricant.  It’s compatible with all types and a little goes a long way.  Though any type is safe to use with the toy, avoid oil-based lube when using anything vaginally, water-based and silicone-based are the smartest choices.

Untitled-2The G-Buzz, and all products from Oro Vidri, come with their own leather wrap.  The wrap is cut to fit your toy perfectly and stays secure using two gold plated closures.  It’s nice and snug around the dildo, but being a wrap it doesn’t have sides to prevent the toy from slipping through.  The wrap does a great job at preventing the surface of your dildo from getting scratched or damaged, but it’s not padded in any way, so be very careful that it doesn’t fall, even while inside the wrap.  If it ever does drop, while it’s in or out of the wrap, make sure you carefully inspect it, and don’t use if there are signs of damage.



Untitled-8After carefully inspecting each product, they place it inside the leather wrap, and make sure it’s completely protected by bubble wrap.  On top of the bubble wrap taped around your toy, there is some also lining the inside of the plain box it’s shipped to you in.  The padding for your dildo is amazing and the likelihood of your toy arriving damaged is nearly impossible thanks to how protected it is.  The box itself is clearly labeled as ‘Fragile’ on the outside, but nothing gives away what the box contains.

There’s also a beautiful piece of paper surrounding the wrap.  It’s a simple added touch that shows how detail oriented this company is, all the way around!


While I was browsing the Oro Vidri website, the G-Buzz really jumped out to me.  There are lots of products that contain gold and silver flakes, but there was just something about this one that stood out to me.  The shape was so different and interesting to me, and with the texture on top of that, I knew I had to add this beautiful piece to my collection!

Holding the toy in my hands, I knew I was already in love with this piece!  I wish I could just hold it all day!  I know that sounds strange, but there’s just something about this glass that makes me want it around me all the time.  When it came time to use it for the first time, I was super impressed.  I’m someone that usually prefers some girth to my toys, but the texture on this one really made up for the size difference.  Both thrusting and twisting the dildo felt amazing and I was impressed with how easily it rubbed against my G-spot.  If you’ve read any of my other reviews you already know I can’t orgasm from internal stimulation alone, but when I used the G-Buzz along with my go-to clitoral vibe, I was blown away!  Using them together created one of the most powerful solo sessions I’ve ever had!

If you haven’t checked out the beautiful products created by the amazing artisans at Oro Vidri, you don’t know what you’re missing!  I highly recommend looking at their current collections (Lush and Crystal) and keep checking back this Winter for the release of their Venetian Dreams collection which will feature limited edition colored pieces as well!

If you like what you see but the perfect toy isn’t jumping out at you, you can fill out the contact form to see if they can make your perfect toy come to life!  How many companies are willing to provide you with a completely one of a kind piece?

As with any company that produces hand crafted products, there will be a slight wait time.  Expect your product to take between 7-10 days to make, though it might be longer if they’re working on a custom piece for you.

Starting an adult blog can be a pretty intimidating and challenging process.  It’s difficult in general to know where to start as far as setting up your website, all the technical issues surrounding the beginning steps, and getting it to fit your tastes and personality.  It can be a frustrating process when you’re only a little more than clueless about coding, what a widget is, and whether or not your ‘Meta’ is necessary to display.  Once you feel like you’re making progress, it only takes one tiny mistake to screw up everything,  leaving you close to tears.  Your website will truly become your baby.  It takes maintenance, energy, time, and attention; especially when your baby is taking its first steps toward success.  While my blog was just pulling itself to standing, I created a post that referred all newbies to another blogger‘s amazing post for newbies.  There’s a lot of information in that post that also links to many other established reviewers.

Once you’re up and running is when you really start to feel the pressure.  With so many established adult bloggers, it’s difficult to feel like you’ll fit in, be noticed, and have a voice set apart from the rest.  Don’t let others intimidate you!  They were once the new kid on the block and they are every bit as real as you are, even if they are more ‘famous‘ than you.  Jump on twitter and get in on the action there.  Start following people you enjoy and respect and start conversations with them (you can start one with me anytime!).  An amazing community has formed, and welcomes new comers with open arms and sound advice.

Once your blog is live, you’ve made a few friends, and have written a few posts, it’s time to figure out where to go from there.  If you’re planning on reviewing adult products, it’s natural to want to reach out to every adult store and manufacturer possible to see if you can join their affiliate program, review program, or both.  Having review examples to show someone gives them a great idea on what they can expect from you, and might make them more comfortable with sending you products to review.  Sending out emails and reaching out through twitter is a great way to get someone interested in your blog and willing to take a chance on you, but there are things you need to pay close attention to.

Before emailing anyone, make sure you write up a disclosure policy and have it displayed on your blog.  It can feel overwhelming and hard to know exactly what you want it to say, but there’s a great website that gives you a place to start.  You can add to it, change it up, and remove parts, but it gives you a general idea of what it should include.

After you’ve emailed companies, expect some of them to say no or never respond.  Not everyone is willing to take a chance on a new blogger, and many companies will expect your traffic or rank to be a certain level before they’ll agree to anything.  Don’t let it discourage you!  It all comes with time and the more you put yourself out there, the higher your traffic will be.  Participating in memes will not only get you traffic, but they’re fun and help you meet other bloggers who have similar interests.  Whether you’re interested in creative writing, posting erotic images, or even taking photos of your toys themselves, there’s a meme you can participate in.  Take a look around and see which ones suit you.  I participate in a handful, but there are many others as well.

There will be many companies that are willing to take a chance on you without worrying about how popular you are or how much experience you have, and it’s always exciting when someone says, “Sure, where can I send your product?”.  But before you beam in excitement, hand over your address, and stalk the mailman, there are some things you need to watch out for.

  • The period they expect the review to be written – Some companies expect the review to be written in a certain time frame.  Most are very reasonable, but some expect you to be a little more prompt.  Try not to contact too many companies at once since you might then have to worry about pushing out review after review as you get through them.  It’s very overwhelming!
  • Watch for red flags – Any time a company asks to proofread your review, it’s likely not something you want to agree to.  Your review should directly reflect your thoughts and feelings on a product, and someone expecting you to change your words to better suit their product/company is not a place you want to review for.  If you do decide to go through with it, make sure you let them know you’ll only be changing incorrect information, spelling errors, and grammar issues.  Anything beyond that is unacceptable.
  • Sometimes boxes just show up, and they aren’t discreet – There will be times you’re not given a tracking number and a box suddenly shows up at your front door.  Be prepared for that to happen.  Also, know that some companies don’t ship in totally plain brown boxes and will have their company name somewhere on the label of packaging.  If this is something that you’re concerned about, you can always try mentioning it to the company prior to shipment, but expect it to happen at times either way.
  • Make sure to add links within your review – Links to the product, company website, category it falls under (vibe, dildo, plug, etc.) is really important.  Some companies will let you know exactly what they expect of you, but others will just tell you to properly link.
  • Don’t forget the disclaimer! – It’s important to include somewhere in your review that the product was provided to you free of charge in exchange for the review.  It’s a requirement according to FTC guidelines and requires only a short sentence or two that can be included anywhere in your review.  The wording isn’t super important, but if you look at my reviews you’ll always see something like: “This product was provided to me free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review.  This is in compliance with FTC guidelines”.
  • Email the company with your review link - Sending your link helps the company keep track of which reviews have already been written and which ones still need to be worked on.  If you ever have an issue where you’re unable to complete the review in a timely matter due to personal reasons, make sure to email the company and let them know of your situation.  Most will be very understanding, where they would probably get rather annoyed if you didn’t let them know what was going on.
  • Promote your review – Social media is a great way to draw attention to your review, your blog, and companies you’re working with.  Join twitter, make a facebook page, tumblr, google +, etc.  The more you promote your reviews/blog, the more traffic you’re likely to get.  Many companies will also post your review to their website and social media pages as well, which equals even more traffic!
  • Don’t expect to make loads of money – Though you may get lots of clicks on your affiliate links, you’ll only make money if people are purchasing through them.  Promoting sales and directing others to go through your links is helpful, but still won’t generate a ton of money.  Most companies require your total sales to be $50 or more in order to send you a commissions check, so even if someone does make a purchase using your links, it doesn’t mean you’ll be cashing checks just yet.  Each company is different as far as commission percentages and how much you’re required to make before getting paid.  Carefully read over the information before signing up with each company.

Your blog might look like a ghost town at first, but try to keep in mind that not everyone comments on everything they read.  Try to post material that leaves room for comments; ask a question related to the topic you posted, and try to be patient.  Write your blog for yourself, what you’re interested in, and what you feel is relevant, but do your best to engage others.  And just like when you write reviews, use twitter, facebook, etc. to let people know something new has been posted.

If you need help with anything, reach out!  I’ve been stuck so many times and have found the answers by simply tweeting about it.  Toss your question out there and see who bites.  If someone doesn’t know the answer, they often know someone that does.  It’s normal to be confused about things, to mess up, and to get stuck; and more times than not there will be someone available and willing to help you.

My blog is only three months old now, and I’m amazed by everything I’ve learned during this time.  I still have a long way to go, I’m still learning new things all the time, and I’m more than willing to share my mistakes and experiences with others if it will help in anyway.  I don’t normally directly address the people that read my blog, but I hope whether you’re just a reader, are interested in starting your own blog, or have been blogging for years, that you’ll reach out to me if you ever have questions or need advice.  I’m still pretty new around here, but I’m more than willing to do what I can to help.

I realize other bloggers have made very similar posts, but I wanted to share a little about what I’ve learned and feel is important for new bloggers to learn as well.  There’s far more information to learn than what I’ve written here, so check out the link in the first paragraph; much more established bloggers have included amazing information there.  And as I’ve already said, if you ever have a question about anything, don’t hesitate to ask!

Rudy from Exotic-Erotics

- Made from silicone
- Very detailed
- Can be customized
- Pretty average in size
- Reasonably priced
- Pouch included (make sure to check the box)
- Some small issues with the mold (see images below)
- Doesn’t work well in a harness




Rudy from Exotic-Erotics is a silicone dildo that was life-cast; meaning a man’s erect penis was used to make the mold for this toy rather than the company forming one.  Life-cast toys pick up incredible details that are otherwise lost in molds that are created in other ways.

Great for solo and couple use, Rudy feels a lot like a real penis which isn’t a surprise considering all the details.  The size is quite average which should work for a variety of experience levels and the large base makes it safe to use both vaginally and anally.  It’s pretty straightforward as far as dildos go.  It doesn’t have a suction cup bottom, doesn’t have a bullet hole, and isn’t easily used in a harness.  You can, however, make things more interesting by placing a vibrating cock ring at the base of the toy, or can stick with simple thrusting.

Since there are no internal parts, you can easily enjoy a bath or shower with Rudy as your companion.  It’s safe to use just about anywhere and is compact enough that traveling with it shouldn’t be much of an issue (at least not compared to some of the other toys offered by Exotic-Erotics!).


Untitled-2Rudy is made from silicone which is a fantastic material because it’s non-porous, body safe, latex and phthalate free.  This particular silicone has a matte surface which only has a small amount of drag to it and does collect lint.  It’s surprisingly smooth considering it has some drag to it, and feels really nice.

Untitled-3When purchasing your Rudy, you have the option of choosing which firmness you’d like (I’ll cover that more in the customize section) for your toy.  Mine is a medium and has a somewhat realistic feel to it, having a good amount of squish, while still being firm enough to easily thrust with.  The firm would probably feel most like an actual penis, but I like having toys that are a little more squishy.

On top of being fairly squishy, it’s also has a lot of flexibility to it.  Often times there’s a concern about the discomfort that comes from ramming a dildo into your cervix, but because this is a softer material and can flex so easily, it’s less likely to be an issue.  It might be a little more difficult for some to insert (especially anally), but I didn’t have an issue with it.

The surface of the toy is quite textured, having a prominent head, vein covered shaft, and puckered testicles.  The testicles are obviously not felt during penetration, but they do help you get a good grip on the toy.  The other texture isn’t overwhelming, but is there.  The head is, though prominent, doesn’t create much of a popping sensation because of the soft material.



Untitled-7Molded from a real penis, Rudy is extremely detailed, proudly showing off every little vein and crease it has to offer.  There’s nothing overly unique about the shape of it, which is surprising considering it comes from Exotic-Erotics, where they specialize in animal and fantasy toys in general, but it’s great for what it is.

Though available in a wide range of colors, I chose the Fleshy Brown because it’s a new option and I wanted to showcase it.  It’s a very milk chocolate like color that almost makes me wish I could take a bite right out of it!  I normally gravitate toward flesh tones that are closer to my husband’s coloring (more of a caramel), but this option is great for those that prefer darker skin tones.

Untitled-8With any life-cast toy there will likely be some slight issues with the mold.  On this dildo, there are a few obvious flat spots on the testicles, some bubbling on the tip (where the urethral hole should be), and a few areas that look a little less than perfect.  It doesn’t effect the feel of the toy, but does effect the overall look.

The size is very reasonable, especially considering how large some of their other products run, and I would say it’s average (maybe just slightly above average) as far as dildos/penises go.  The total length is 7″ with an insertable length of 6″.  The head starts out being 4 3/4″ in circumference and the widest area (mid-shaft) is 5 1/4″ around.  It might be a little girthy for someone who’s never been penetrated before, but should feel very normal for someone used to having sex.



Exotic-Erotics is great about trying to create that toy that best fits your taste and comfort levels.  Many of their toys are available in a variety of sizes, but Rudy doesn’t give you that option.  This toy is only available in one size (see measurements above), but you can perfect other elements of the toy.

-Firmness – Choosing how firm your toy should be is very important.  You don’t want it to be too floppy to use and you don’t want the toy to be uncomfortably firm.  There are three option for Rudy:

  • Soft
  • Medium 
  • Hard

If you’re not sure which firmness is right for you, Exotic-Erotics offers a $5 sample set that includes each of the firmness levels, helping you choose what’s right for you.  If you decide to try the set first and end up making a purchase later on, they’ll take the $5 you spent and put it toward the purchase you make.  In the end if you make a purchase, it’s like you got the sample set for free and were able to choose the level that was right for you.

-Color Options – There’s no need to go basic when it comes to the color of your toy!  With wide options available, your Rudy can be as unique as you are.  If skin tones bother you, there are all kinds of funky colors, and at least one should fit your tastes.

  • Black
  • Blue
  • Brown
  • Custom (Leave in Comments; No Fades)(+$5)
  • Fleshy Brown
  • Fleshy Pink
  • Florescent Blue
  • Florescent Green
  • Florescent Orange
  • Florescent Red
  • Florescent Yellow
  • Green
  • Green Glow-in-the-Dark (+$15)
  • Light Blue
  • Light Brown
  • Pink
  • Red
  • White
  • Yellow


When your toy arrives it comes with a little card that tells you everything you need to know about caring for and cleaning your toy.  It’s a generic card that they include with all purchases, but pertains to anything you’d purchase from their site.  Rudy in particular is quite easy to clean, but you will need to pay attention to the little creases.  Using a soft bristled tooth brush will be your best bet to get into all the small areas where lubricant and bodily fluids could be left behind.



As you’re making your purchase, there will be an option to include a pouch with your toy.  Make sure you check this box because they’ll send you a custom made pouch that will fit your toy perfectly, at no additional charge.


Rudy arrives in a plain brown box with not obvious markings on it, making it totally discreet.  When you open the box, your toy will be inside a sealed plastic bag, and if you checked the Free Storage Bag option, will also be inside the pouch.  If for some reason the toy you received is the wrong firmness or color don’t open the plastic bag!  If your toy is still sealed in the bag, you’ll be able to return it or exchange it for the right thing.

-A Little Comparison-

Prior to Rudy, the most realistic looking (and feeling) dildo in my collection was Johnny Vixskin from Vixen Creations.  The details on that toy really surprised me, but when I put Rudy next to it, I was shocked at the difference.  While Johnny feels more like the real thing (thanks to the dual density silicone), you can tell it wasn’t life-cast like Rudy.  Johnny has the appropriate features that make it a realistic dildo, but lacks the small details that show up on Rudy.



-Final Thoughts-

When I first saw Rudy on the Exotic-Erotics website I can honestly say I wasn’t drawn to it.  With many other whimsical and unique toys I couldn’t imagine someone choosing such a normal looking dildo.  What I did appreciate about it, was the fact that it was life-cast.  There are many dildos made from porn stars, but I liked the fact that this one came from a regular guy, not some big shot.

It’s not perfect looking, which might bother some, but I think it just shows that much more how real it is.  My husband and I once tried a Clone A Willy Kit without any success at all, but I imagine it would have come out similar to this and I would have been happy with it.  I want to say I think it’s an attractive looking toy, but the long, awkward testicles prevent me from lusting over it.

Now, before you think I hate this toy, I don’t.  Just because the look of it wasn’t appealing to me, doesn’t mean it was bad in general.  I tend to be a bit of a size queen, but do enjoy using more average sized toys as well.  Rudy was a surprise to me.  I honestly thought I wasn’t going to like it because I wasn’t attracted to it, but found it quite enjoyable.  It feels a lot like the real thing during use and makes a great go-to when your man isn’t available for play.  I don’t ever orgasm from insertable toys alone, but I did find it to be quite stimulating and appreciate the fact that it didn’t cause any discomfort when I was thrusting.

If you’re looking for an affordable and realistic option, you might just find it in the most seemingly unlikely of places.  Exotic-Erotics carries two realistic dildos; Rudy and Shane.  When you’re checking them out, don’t forget to shop the other amazing dildos available!


Rudy was provided to me free of charge (excluding shipping) in exchanged for an unbiased review.  This is in compliance with FTC guidelines.

Wham Bam Paddle

- Made from silicone
- High quality
- Suitable for advanced players
- Gender friendly
- Leaves marks (could be a con)
- A little floppy
- No wrist strap
- A little too long
- Might be too intense for beginners




The Wham Bam paddle from Tantus is an impact toy made entirely out of silicone.  Best for those who have some experience, this paddle isn’t nearly as innocent as it looks.  Though simple in design, it packs a powerful punch; creating an amazing stinging sensation and leaves behind rosy evidence of your play.

The paddle can be used on any area of the body, but you’ll want to keep it in an area that can be easily concealed if you don’t want anyone knowing about your play.  Depending on the force behind it, the marks can last for a few hours, but they don’t cause discomfort for the same length of time.

Beginners to impact play can use this paddle, but keep in mind that the sting is quite intense depending on how hard you’re hit.  Start off with lighter taps and working your way up if you’re able to handle it.  If you’re the one controlling the force behind the blows, pay close attention to your partner and check with them often.  Some people find that using a safeword is the best way know how your partner is handling the situation.


Made from 100% Ultra-Premium Silicone, the Wham Bam paddle is hypoallergenic, non-porous, and phthalate free.  It’s a completely body safe material that’s super easy to care for and clean.  Not many other paddles boast the same qualities, especially since it can be boiled or put in the dishwasher to fully sanitize.

The surface of the toy is completely smooth apart from the company name being raised near the top of the handle.  The surface is a matte black and feels nice and smooth.  There’s isn’t an issue with drag but it does pick up some lint, though it’s not unreasonable.  Along the perimeter of the paddle is an obvious seam, but its not on an area that connects with your body so it shouldn’t be concerning.


The material is very flexible, which is awesome in one sense, and not so great in another.  The length of the Wham Bam paddle is reasonable, but it does get a little limp when you’re holding it up.  It’s not stretchy and there’s almost no give when you press on the material itself, but the flexibility makes it great for slapping.  It’s sometimes a little difficult to control, especially when you’re really close to your partner, but works well in general.



The Wham Bam paddle has a really wonderful shape to it that’s comfortable to hold and easy to use.  The area that comes in contact with your body is shaped like a rounded rectangle that narrows at the bottom for the handle.  The handle isn’t as wide, but is thicker, making it much harder to bend than the rest of the piece.  The bottom of the handle has sexy curves and has a hole going through it.  There’s no wrist cord for this toy, but since the hole is there it wouldn’t be difficult to add one of your own.


Untitled-3The paddle is fairly thin, being only 1/4″ on the business end, and 1/2″ for the handle.  Though it’s fairly thin, it’s super high quality and really does pack a punch!  The length of the paddle is a little bit long if you’re using it when you’re super close to your partner (like during intercourse) but isn’t difficult to control in general.  It’s a total of 15″ long and is 2″ wide.

The size is suitable if you’re traveling with a suitcase since it would easily slip between some of your folded clothes.  However, it wouldn’t work very well in something smaller like a purse.  Similarly, it stores pretty well in a dresser drawer or another long, flat container.


Since this paddle is made completely from silicone, you can treat it as you would any of your silicone dildos.  There’s no concern about getting bodily fluids on the toy, and cleaning with antibacterial soap before and after use does the job well.  If you’re sharing with someone else you can boil the toy or put it in the dishwasher to sanitize it.

There’s no need for lubricant with this product, but accidentally getting some on it shouldn’t be a big issue.  Try to avoid silicone lube when you can since sometimes they have a poor reaction to each other, but you’re good other than that.


Untitled-4The Wham Bam paddle doesn’t actually come inside of a package.  It arrives loose in a plain brown box.  The only paperwork with the toy are the tags attached to the base of the paddle.  They give you the basic information about what it is and what it’s made from.  The rubbery cord holding the tag can be easily untied and the tags removed.  There’s really no need to hang onto them, so you can dispose of them as you wish.


My husband and I don’t normally participate in much impact play apart from the casual slap on the ass, but it’s something I’ve always wanted to test out a little more.  Not understanding how being whacked by something could be pleasurable, my man has always held back, fearing that he would hurt me.  He’s a softie deep down.

Untitled-7The Wham Bam paddle kind of fell into our laps, and I took it as a sign.  I again expressed my interest to him in testing out impact play with me, and he agreed, obviously a little uncomfortable by the idea.  We spent lots of time on foreplay, and were both in that state of extreme arousal before trying it out.  I was on my knees when he entered me from behind, and while he was thrusting, he was also slapping my ass with it.  I could tell he was starting off easier than necessary, feeling the slaps, but not much sting behind them.  He pulled away from me and gave me a few good whacks, now that I felt.  This was the first time I’d ever been hit that hard and the sensation was totally new to me.   When the sex was over, I asked him to hit me as hard as he could.  I know that a part of him held back because I’m his wife and he’d never want to truly hurt me, but it was quite intense.  After the hit it took a few seconds and then the stinging sensation quickly built up.  It started off with “Owe” and ended in “Holy fuck that hurts!”.  I’m not someone that swears much, but it fell out of my mouth with ease at the feeling.

Now, while that might sound like I didn’t enjoy myself, it’s quite the opposite.  I LOVED the build up type of intensity the whacks provided!  They hurt for a few moments after he stopped, but I was able to move around and sit down without experiencing any extra discomfort.  The paddle leaves great read marks that can last for a few hours.  We stayed up about two hours after we played and they were still there (though a lot lighter) when we went to bed.

I have found a new favorite love in the bedroom, and after telling him how much I enjoyed it, he told me that he did as well.  This is something we’ll be leaving in the nightstand for easy access and I see us using it frequently in the future!

Oh! Rabbit G-Spot

- Made of silicone
- Dual stimulating
- Separate controls
- Easy to use
- Pretty powerful
- Variety in function
- LOUD rotation
- No storage pouch
- Won’t fit everyone’s anatomy





The Oh! Rabbit G-Spot from Lovehoney is a rabbit style vibrator.  Rabbit vibrators are designed for women with the purpose of stimulating both internal and external pleasure zones at the same time.  The insertable area of the toy has rotating beads and a curved tip while the clitoral arm offers vibrations.  The functions are separately controlled and can be used one at at time or both together.

Great for solo and partnered use, the Oh! Rabbit G-Spot makes it easy to stimulate both the G-spot and clitoris at the same time without having to use two hands.  The shape of the toy is great for its designed use, but is limited apart from it.  It’s not great for teasing other areas of the body, and isn’t a great choice if you’re looking for anal stimulation.  It’s safe to use it anally, but isn’t the best choice thanks to the design.

Safe to use in the tub or shower, the Oh! Rabbit G-Spot is fully waterproof, which also helps when it comes to cleaning time.  There’s no worry about water leaking inside your toy because there’s an o-ring around the battery cap that prevents it.  While it is safe to use just about anywhere, it’s not a travel friendly toy.  It’s quite large and not at all discreet, so it’s best to leave this one at home.


Untitled-5Made from skin-safe silicone (according to the packaging), the Oh! Rabbit G-Spot is non-porous, phthalate free, and is one of the safest materials you can get for a sex toy.  The insertable area and clitoral arm are both covered in a layer of silicone and though there is some flexibility, is quite firm thanks to the internal parts.  The tip of the G-spot stimulator and the bunny ears have the most movement, but the motors underneath the silicone prevent it from being squishy.  The base of the toy is made from ABS plastic which is equally body safe.  Apart from the control panel, this area is completely firm and smooth.

Untitled-4There are a few very small areas on the toy where texture is present.  The shaft of the rabbit has some very slightly raised details on either side of it, and there’s an obvious seam going down the center and back of the toy.  The face of the clitoral arm has a similar seam and some small details that may be felt.  The texture is extremely light and I was completely unable to feel any of it during use.  The plastic base has a little wavy pattern to it which helps keep your grip on the smooth surface, even when you’ve been dealing with lubricant.

This particular silicone has a matte looking finish that has a lot of drag to it.  It easily picks up really fine dust and fuzzies, so it’s important to clean it both before and after each use.


The Oh! Rabbit G-Spot is pretty standard as far as looks and design.  You have the insertable shaft with rotating beads under the silicone, a clitoral arm that resembles a rabbit, and have the control pad on the base of the toy.  There aren’t any special features and it isn’t really unique as far as dual stimulating toys go, but the rabbit is a classic and works well as it is.

If you’ve never tried a rabbit vibrator before, it’s still pretty self explanatory; the tip of the toy is inserted into your vagina (where you’ll feel the rotating beads if you choose that function) and the face and ears of the bunny will vibrate against your clitoris.  The ears can be placed on one side or either side of the clitoris thanks to the flexibility.  Rabbits don’t work for everyone because they are fairly anatomy specific.  Often times the clitoral arm will be too long or short when the internal stimulator is against the G-spot; you take a change every time you try one, but a well fit rabbit is like winning the lottery!


The size really isn’t suitable for travel and would be too large for most beginners.  The full length of the toy measures 10 1/4″ in length, with 5 1/4″ being insertable.  The girth starts off at 4 1/4″ in circumference and is 5″ at the widest part (the area where the beads are).  The clitoral arm is 2 1/4″ long, with 1″ making up the ears.


To power your Oh! Rabbit G-Spot, you need to use three AA batteries which aren’t included.  When you unscrew the bottom of the toy, a battery tray comes out.  There are two spots on one side and one on the other and it’s very clearly marked how they should be inserted.  Once you replace the tray and screw the cap back on, you’re ready to power it up.


There are a total of five buttons on the key pad, and six light indicators.  The vibrations and rotations are controlled separately, giving you the option of using them together, or only one at a time.  The buttons can seem a little overwhelming when you first look at them, especially if you’re a new toy user, but they’re actually very simple to understand and use.

Untitled-8The two buttons on the top control the rotation.  There is no specific ‘on’ button, you simply press the up button once to turn it onto the first speed.  One red light with shine showing you it’s on the first speed.  A second press will make it go a little faster and will add a second light, and a third press will bring you to the highest speed and illuminate the third light indicator on top.  If you want to slow the speed down or stop the rotation, you press the down arrow until you reach your desired speed or until they turn off.

The center button controls the direction of the rotation.  When the rotation function is on, pressing this button will cause the beads to rotate the opposite way.  If they were turning clockwise, they would then turn counterclockwise, etc.  There isn’t a light indicator for this function, and that’s the only purpose of this button.

The bottom button controls the vibrations of the clitoral arm.  The shaft of the toy itself doesn’t vibrate, but they travel well when it’s turned on.  One press of the wavy button turns the vibrations on to the first function.  Each time you press it you’ll change the pattern and it will continuously cycle.  To turn the vibrations off, you have to hold down the button for a few seconds.  Unlike the rotation light indicators, the vibration ones function a little differently.  All three lights mimic the pattern you’re on.  They’ll flash on pulsing patterns and glow normally for the steady vibrations.

There are seven patterns of vibration:

  1. Steady Low
  2. Steady Medium
  3. Steady High
  4. Medium Pulse
  5. Quick Escalating Pulses
  6. Strong Slow Pulses
  7. Three Short Pulses, One Long Pulse

The vibrations are surprisingly deep and are fairly powerful.  They are felt strongest in the face of the rabbit, but do travel easily through the ears and shaft of the toy.  They might not be strong enough to satisfy a power queen, but they’re suitable for most users.

The rotation is interesting and I think most users will enjoy the sensation, however, they are very loud.  Though you might not wake the neighbors, someone could easily hear them through a closed door and they are extremely distracting during use.  The vibrations alone are very reasonable and wouldn’t be heard unless someone was in the same room with you.


Oh! Rabbit G-Spot can be easily cleaned with antibacterial soap and warm water or your favorite toy cleaner for regular use.  If you’re planning on sharing with a partner it’s important to fully sterilize the toy by wiping it down with a 10% bleach solution.  Because there are internal parts to this toy, it can’t be boiled or put in the dishwasher like you can other toys.

Water-based lubricant is the best option with this toy since other materials might cause the surface to become damaged.  It’s also important to find something to store your toy in since it doesn’t come with a pouch and the box wasn’t designed for long term use.


Untitled-3This rabbit arrives in a pretty basic looking cardboard box that has a colored image of the toy on the front.  The text information combined with the photo instantly give away what the box contains.  It’s not discreet in that sense, but at least it’s not covered with tacky adult material.  The basic information about the toy is displayed on the the sides, but it’s nothing super important to take note of.  When you open the top you’ll see the toy nestled inside a plastic tray that prevents it from moving around inside the box.  The only paperwork included is short and to the point; explaining how it’s used and showing an image of how to insert the batteries.  It’s not luxury packaging, but it’s okay, I just wish they would have included a storage pouch.


Rabbit vibrators in general are a big hit or a miss and thanks to my anatomy, they’re usually the latter.  My clitoris is pretty far away from my opening and many clitoral arms only just barely reach, or don’t at all.  The Oh! Rabbit G-Spot actually worked pretty well for me, and I found myself enjoying it fairly well thanks to the power of the strongest vibration level.  I was feeling really good about the toy, thinking I would really enjoy it, and then I turned on the rotation setting.  I couldn’t believe how loud it was!  On top of that, I tried it on each setting and didn’t find it to be very stimulating to me.  I’m not very sensitive inside, so this might have been a personal issue, but it really didn’t thrill me.  After being so pleased with how the vibrations felt, I was extremely let down by the underwhelming feeling and very loud rotation of the shaft.  I couldn’t concentrate on it because it was so distracting, not something I want to worry about when I’m trying to please myself.

The quality is good, the vibrations are surprisingly strong and deep, it’s waterproof, and works well.  However, the rotation was a total failure in my opinion, which made the insertable portion of the toy nearly useless because only the vibrations are worthwhile.

Just because I didn’t fall in love with this toy, doesn’t mean it won’t be the right one for you.  If you’re interested in purchasing the Oh! Rabbit G-Spot, you can find it at Lovehoney by clicking the banner below.
