Review: Doxy Die Cast Wand Massager

Oh Doxy, how I love/hate thee…There is so much to love here and so much frustration. For those of you who have never heard of Doxy, they are a company out of the UK that has made a rival to the legendary Magic Wand (among other fun toys I’ll review later!). Now, I do not own a Magic Wand (I know, right?!) so this will not be a comparison of the two. I will say though that if you like power, the Doxy spins at up to 9.000 RPM against the Magic Wands 5,000 RPM and 6,000 RPM settings. This wand has some SERIOUS power. Sheet grabbing, scream inducing power. Involuntary crying, pass out, fall in love power. Mmmmmmm……anyhoo….

This power comes to you in the form of glorious, rumbly vibrations. I need rumbly vibrations. Buzzy just doesn’t cut it for me anymore. My orgasms are mostly internal and clit stimulus needs to reach the deeper layers to get me off. The vibrations from the Doxy are deliciously rumbly. The Die Cast model in particular has a double weighted head to help with the “thuddiness” at higher settings. This wand is the first toy I have owned that can reliably give me multiple orgasms. Usually, I get too tickly or my nerve endings feel too overstimulated. I have to stop. Not here. I can get off on the first setting and keep moving it upwards to keep going. And this power is the only thing I have found to match the intensity of the Eleven. Those two together cause me to gush. Somehow, the Eleven is easier to handle when using the Doxy. The vibrations help me relax and the intensity is spread all over. It is awe inspiring.

The vibrations do get buzzier the higher settings you go though. This wand goes up 8 speeds. I am sure there are people out there who can roll with the top setting, but I have only used up to level three. Don’t let that fool you, I like a powerful vibrator. I need it to overwhelm me sometimes. But on the third setting, this thing gets going so strongly that the silicone head actually starts to rotate, taking my labia with it. It sounds like an airplane taking off. It has me swollen and red in 30 seconds. There is no lack of power at level 3. I seriously don’t think I could keep it on my clit at level 8! Gives me something to work up to though. It is good to have goals.

The spin on higher levels is one of my major complaints. With a vibrator, I need to find the right spot. Directed. Downward. Hitting just where I need it to push my gspot orgasm over the edge. It is hard to keep the wand in the right spot if it is literally taking my bits and swirling them around away from where I put it! I’m constantly readjusting and losing my “spot”. This isn’t an issue on the lower settings, but if I’m at level three, I’m desperate to cum again. That means I’ve already had at least one orgasm but I’m not done. Picture me bleary eyed, getting fucked, solely focused on that release, then the wand moves all my bits to the left. Not cool, Doxy. Not cool. I can smash the head into my clit and work with it though. On the flip side, the vibrations are certainly strong enough to penetrate my clothing if I want a quick orgasm on the go. The rotation isn’t an issue then. It also may not both you if you have smaller labia. It could give an added friction sensation. Bonus!

My wand is the die-cast model which is made of cast aluminum and titanium with a silicone head. It is of the less en-vogue plug in variety, but this sort of power could not come from a battery powered toy. The toy is hefty and comes in at around 13 inches long. Wand vibrators aren’t known for their demure stature. If you have ever used a wand, you know the limitations in positioning. Not the end of the world, but if you like missionary, this is hard to squeeze between you. It isn’t terribly heavy though and I haven’t had an issue with extended use. My only complaint on the size/shape is that I wish it had a curve closer to the head. The vibrations do carry some down the handle (though not terribly given how powerful it is) and once my hands are all slippery I find it hard to hold onto the top of the handle where I prefer. My hand slips down towards the buttons and I can’t get the leverage or control I want. I end up having to hold the handle right at the neck of the head. Again, workable but not ideal and a bit clumsy.

The buttons are large, easily accessible, and simple. Just what I’m looking for in a vibrator. The last thing I want to be doing is fumbling mid sex. And there are few things more frustrating than going to turn it up one notch to send yourself over the edge and accidentally pushing the wrong button and totally derailing yourself. There are three buttons: On/Off, up, and down. The wand defaults to a steady vibration but also has a pulse mode that is easily accessed by holding down the power button. Simple. Easy to maneuver without looking.

The power alone has me looking past the size/shape limitations and grabbing this toy first. Even if it twirls my labia. If you love the Magic Wand but find yourself wishing it had just a bit more UMPH, try the Doxy. It will certainly deliver. Over and over and over…..

Review: WeVibe’s Tango

DSC_0228Ah, the Tango. Every single blogger has reviewed this toy. Every single one has owned this icon. There is good reason for it’s abundance. It is the bullet vibe to end all bullet vibes.

When I think “bullet vibe”, my mind goes to a cheap, looks like a giant pill type toy that tortures my clit with surface vibrations to weak to work and buzzes my hand to numbness in 20 seconds. I have never quite understood their purpose, where they would excel. They are not great on their own when I could get something with a handle for better hold and positioning. They are not great in toys because their vibrations never seem strong enough to carry through and be effective. They don’t stay put on their own. They just seemed like poorly designed throw away toys. The Tango is not this type of toy. Toss out all your preconceived notions about bullet vibes. This is not a bullet vibe. Sure, it may fit into that demographic, but it is in its own category.

I originally bought the Tango explicitly to use in my new Fuze dildo in my harness. The Fuze took a vibe and I figured if I was going to buy a bullet vibe (note my aforementioned distain…) I figured I should invest in a good one. The Tango had a cult following and was made by WeVibe so I took the chance. It fit into my new toy and I figured that would be the extent of my usage. For the record, it is great in my Fuze. The vibrations carry beautifully through the silicone and do wonderful things when I wear my harness. It really increases the pleasure of strap on play for me.

Those vibrations are what make the Tango so different. Most bullet vibes I have tried are akin to the cheap Pocket Rocket I bought at a Spencer’s in high school. Buzzy. Surface. Almost irritating after a bit. Certainly will numb your bits. Either that or they aren’t strong enough at all. Barely enough to get you going. The perfect amount to frustrate you. Again, not the Tango. The vibrations are deep. Most describe them as rumbly. I am not sure I would say they are rumbly, but they do resonate deep into my pelvis. It seems to stimulate not just the external tissue but the erectile tissue under the surface as well. It almost elicits two sensations that way. The deeper “rumbly” one and the external buzz. Yummy stuff for sure. It was amazingly mind blowing with my Comet wand. Internal, external, subcutaneous. All sorts of delicious feelings and a hell of an orgasm.

DSC_0233The Tango is one of the few non-silicone toys I own. It is made of a body safe ABS plastic. It is still phthalate and latex free. It is a hard plastic though as opposed to a soft silicone. I believe the material and shape of the toy play a huge roll in its power. The vibrations carry very easily through firm plastic. No power is lost traveling through silicone. You get it on full throttle. And the shape is not only cute (I feel like a lipstick shaped vibe can only be described as “cute”) it is absolutely functional. You can use the full length of the toy for very broad stimulation, the flat side of the tip for more directed sensation, or the very tip for pinpoint accuracy. I like a toy with options. It is slim and easy to handle and maneuver.

Another thing that surprised me about this toy is that my hand doesn’t go numb holding it. I really thought it would! Especially with the strength of the toy. But I guess that is just another sign of the quality of the vibrations. They aren’t so buzzy that your nerves shut down. I can hold it during sex and not finding it distracting!

The Tango is waterproof (hello hot tub party…) and rechargeable. It charges with a magnetic USB charger. I have found it holds a charge for the advertised 2 hour window. I have not run it completely out of power yet so I am not sure how long it would go. I do appreciate the low power warning light though! As a woman haunted by batteries dying at the most inopportune time, I like that I know the end is near. Plug in or deal with the frustration. It is a great feature. It has 8 vibration modes/patterns so you won’t get bored, although I am pretty classic. I like it steady. But even there they have me covered with 4 levels of intensity. DSC_0236

Obviously I realized I was very wrong to judge all bullet style vibes the same. The Tango is a very welcome addition to my kit. It is so portable it may just live in my purse. You never know when I may stumble upon a party…

Who’s ready for a moustache ride?!

If you’ve read my post on the Eroscillator 2, you’ll know it comes with multiple attachments. I had tried the marshmallow one (actually named the Ultra Soft Finger Tip) and the Grapes & Cockscomb. I sort of got stuck there because I really, really like that cockscomb. BUT, in the name of good research, I decided to push forward and try some more attachments. I pulled out a spoon and a brush.
I had my eye on the absolutely ridiculous looking French Legionnaire’s Moustache. It fit with the whole theme of this toy. Strange in appearance but quite intriguing. Ok. Hilarious in appearance. But after reading the description in the pamphlet that states it is the “ultimate and most sophisticated, next discovery in and outside your vagina,” I couldn’t wait to try. My vagina loves a bit of sophistication.

Not surprising, this silly looking brush attachment is AMAZING. It’s different from any other vibrator I’ve used! I mean AMAZING. Where most vibrator heads/attachments are relatively firm and smooth, this one is so soft to the touch, but the vibrations are still so strong. I was able to climax just with clitoral stimulation again. And, as an added bonus, it didn’t make me flinch away after I came. I could keep going. My nerve endings weren’t on edge and tickly!
moustache ride with sparklesThis attachment honestly approximates the feelings of oral sex. Crazy, but true. It’s that soft, but intense stimulation. I used it on my clit, down my labia, holding the tip down and letting the bristles flutter either side of me, all amazing. I even tried a bit of anal tease and it felt like a great rim job without the risk of E Coli. Spectacular. The stimulation was so smooth I even told Dr R that he could use it on me! I usually don’t like him to use vibrators because they can be so overpowering, but it think this one could be gentle enough to not wipe away other sensations. I’m super excited to try.

Now that I’ve waxed poetic about a Frenchman’s facial hair, let’s talk about The Golden Spoon. Again, it seemed like an odd shape for a vibrator. It is a cup-shaped head on one side and the other side is a flat plane with small bumps. According to the pamphlet (gotta read my directions…) the cup is meant to “receive and stimulate the clitoris.” Ok. Sounds straightforward enough. DSC_0171It was in positioning the head over my clit I noticed the small bump on the inside of the scoop. Hmmm. Interesting. This nodule holds the key. When placed over your clit, that bump sits RIGHT on the most intense spot. It seems to reach under the hood and hit straight on the nerves. It gives you the best of both worlds. The outside edge does a great job of giving you the deep, round pleasure while that tiny dot gives you pinpoint intensity. Crazy good.
The flat side didn’t do too much for me, personally. Good vibrations. Good to get things warmed up, but not really going to get me off. I tried using it vaginally, but it didn’t do much for me. I’m not really a fan of internal vibes anyway but thought I’d try the new sensations this toy provides. Nope, still not really a fan. They have an attachment specifically designed for internal stimulation. I’ll update you when I try that one!

This toy still surprises the hell out of me each time I use it. It’s quickly rising to the top of my favorites list!

I can barely pronounce it but I want to scream its name. Review:The Eroscillator 2

I felt the need to stop everything else I was doing on this busy day to review this toy. It’s that good.

Dr. R gave me a vibrator for Mother’s Day. As I’ve said before, vibrators have not been able to get me off since the birth of my first child. They certainly enhance the experience, but whereas prekids I needed the clitoral stimulation, post kids I need penetration. Or at least I did until now. He did a lot of research and found the Erosillator for me. He presented me with this box and my first thought was, “Why did he give me a sonic toothbrush?” Its a horribly ugly toy. The color is a strange bronze. It’s big. It’s name is clumsy on the tongue. It plugs in. I found it an odd choice. I found myself staring at an ugly toothbrush with a marshmallow on it…

So, I gave it a try.

Holy crap. I had no problem cumming in a matter of minutes…with no penetration. That hasn’t happened in 4 years. Like, not even close. I laid there stunned. I seriously wasn’t sure how to handle it. This toy really surprised me.
What sets this toy apart is the way it vibrates. According to the brochure, instead of pounding my clit with what looks like hammer (I’m assuming it’s a wand vibrator) it massages my clit like a “loving finger.” And ya know, it totally does. It feels different than any other vibrator I’ve tried. It is STRONG. The number 1 setting is stronger than the second setting on my Mystic Wand, and it goes up to three! And the vibrations run deep. It’s not just surface. It vibrates my clit, labia, and the tissue beneath. It doesn’t fry my nerve endings either. I could touch myself and not flich away. And it’s quiet. I can barely hear it out of the sheets.
It comes with several attachment for both internal and external stimulation. One is even called the “Legionaire’s Mustashe.” I’m not sure how I feel about masterbating with a mustache, but I have it on good accord that they are awesome. I have tried two of them so far -the white, marshmallow looking one and one called the grapes and cockscomb. The grapes didn’t do much but the cockscomb (which looked weird and I didn’t think I’d like) had me cumming in 45 seconds. Fastest orgasm I’ve ever had, I think.

The orgasms are a bit spasm-y, but that is due to the strength of vibrations. I think the more I use it, the better I will get at lessening pressure and edging off when I get close. I feel like I have to learn a whole new way to masterbate but I’m totally ok with that. I’m excited to try all the attachments and the toothbrush-esque design actually make it very intercourse friendly. That will be fun. I highly recommend this if you find traditional vibrators don’t work for you or you are looking for something with more power. Hell, I recommend this to anyone…

Review: Vibratex Mystic Wand

 photo image.jpg2_zpsaslnusch.jpg
I bought my first vibrator at 16 from a Spencer’s store at the mall. It was a $5 pocket rocket. It was loud, buzzy, and cheap. I also still have it. Pre-kids, it worked for me. I’ve tried bullets, vibrating cock rings, internal vibes, but I kept coming back to that one. Sadly, it hasn’t done the job in 4 years now so I’ve gone looking again! The famous Magic Wand always seemed so HUGE and cumbersome, although it comes highly recommended by friends and reviewers. Dr. R found the Mystic Wand by Vibratex and got me one in my giant box of toys! It’s a wand vibrator as well but it is much smaller. It comes in at about 7 inches. It’s much bigger than my pocket rocket but a very workable size. Enough to hold onto, but by no means cumbersome. Here’s the low down:
What I liked:
-It’s quiet. You can’t hear it behind a closed door which is key when you have little ears or roommates in the house.
-the vibrations are rumbly, not buzzy. I don’t feel numb after like my clit has been vibrated to death.
-many speeds/options. I normally don’t go for the crazy patterns on a vibrator, but this has one or two I like!
-soft, silicone head
-water resistant, easy to clean
-easily accessible buttons to change settings midsession. Nothing more frustrating than fumbling with a toy mid-masterbation!
What I didn’t like:
-not super strong. Although the vibrations are rumbly, they aren’t super powerful. I still can’t get off with it alone
-wand head doesn’t allow for pinpoint stimulation. This is obviously not a function if this toy, but all wand vibrators in general.
-mine is not rechargeable. They do make a rechargeable version though!
It is a vast improvement over my $5 pocket rocket! I will always have a soft spot for it, but my clit thanks me for the upgrade. My orgasms are much better with this one. It may even entice me to try the Magic Wand…

First Impressions of the We-Vibe 4

I had read mixed reviews of the We-Vibe 4, but I was super excited to try it anyway. Before I was better educated on the dangers of some sex toy materials (read more about that here) I loved cheap vibrating rings. I loved that I could have sex in varying positions and get the clitoral stimulation I needed. It was a toy Dr. R and I could really share. So, when I started looking into couples vibrators, I had high hopes. I bit the bullet, ordered the toy, and anxiously awaited the delivery man.

-rechargeable with a sleek charging station.
The day it came I couldn’t wait to put the kids to bed. Woohoo! New toys!! Then I realized I had to charge it for 4 hours first. Dun dun dun. I should have known that. Anyone who has reached for a vibrator only to hear the disappointingly sad buzz of low batteries knows that the rechargeable feature is well worth the initial charge. So, I plugged it in and waited until the next day. It comes with a great little case/charging station that you could easily keep on a side table, plugged in, and totally incognito. There it sat. Awaiting the next night.
-matte, smooth silicone
The toy is body safe, easily cleanable, and doesn’t collect fuzz. The surface is super smooth and comfortable when in use.
-the vibrations gave me a proper orgasm
Since having my kids, I just can’t get off by clitoral stimulation alone. Vibes generally don’t work well for me unless they are very strong, and then, the quality if the orgasm is…meh. It’s sort of spastic and not super satisfying. Not the case here! The vibrations aren’t super buzzy and I didn’t feel the need to flinch away once I came.
-we can use it together
It was not uncomfortable at all once Dr. R was in there. I was afraid I’d feel it rub the front of me, but nope! The vibrations didn’t do much for him (vibrators generally don’t though. That’s not specific to this toy) but they didn’t bother him at all.

-it’s a bit short for me
I’m a tall woman and I’ve had the issue with some rabbit vibes and the like that my physiology doesn’t quite match up. The clitoral vibrator doesn’t QUITE reach. When I was on top, I could sort of grind onto it and make it work.
-it doesn’t stay in place
I’m not sure how I thought it would but it moves around quite a lot. I expected it would shift side to side. It wants to expel itself though. It’s as if the elbow is too firm and the “C” wants to squeeze shut. Maybe that goes back to the shape of me.
-the motor isn’t super strong.
As I stated above, this is a positive and a negative. I wouldn’t be able to use this just as a vibrator alone.
-the remote didn’t always work
When the toy was between us, the toy didn’t respond to the remote, but the button on the toy is easy to reach.

Since our initial testing, DR. R used the toy on me as a vibrator. He used his fingers to apply pressure to the internal G spot vibrator. That was good. Almost better than using it during intercourse. Overall, it is a very high quality toy that I’m excited to experiment with further!
