Review: The Njoy Eleven

spinal-tap-3If I had to sum up the Njoy 11 in one word, it would be INTENSE. The length, the weight, the circumference of the bulbous head, and the unyielding firmness of the steel all add up to an incredibly intense experience. One I LOVE and Dr. R cannot get enough of. This toy came to me shrouded in a reputation and promises, and it did not disappoint. If you read my last post, you know it reduced me to a quivering puddle.

First, the technical stuff. The nJoy 11 gets its name from the 11″ of medical grade stainless steel from which it is crafted. It is nearly a foot of smooth, polished metal. It weighs in at 2.75 pounds. It doesn’t sound like a whole lot, but that 2.75 lbs starts to get heavy! People who can wield this toy for quite some time will start to develop serious forearm muscles (which happens to be quite a sexy feature in my opinion. It is a win/win). It has a slight “s” curve to it but it is not a severe hook. At either end there is a bulb (one smaller and the other gloriously larger) with a slightly pointed tip. Almost like the bud of a flower getting ready to open. This tip is key and I will go into that in a minute. It also has grooves on the smaller end that act as a handle or finger grips to assist in maneuvering. I am fairly certain you would not want to let this toy slip. It could do some serious damage. On the surface, not a complicated toy, but there are so many features that make this warclub different than anything else in my toy box. eleven

This bulb shape that I mentioned, elicits the perfect blend of wide gspot stimulation and pointed sensation. It is almost like using two toys at once. The ball at the end of the 11 is BIG. There is no way you could miss your gspot because the head of this toy will fill you. It puts pressure all around me, giving me an amazing stretching sensation as well. The “s” curve tilts that point just so that it rubs along the front wall of me adding that pointed pressure just where I need it. The shaft also thins down which gives the added bonus of concentrating all the sensation at my gspot. I get very little stimulation externally or at my opening. It is all inside. The smaller end can also be used. We played around a bit with it to see if I could use it similarly to my Comet Wand or to see if the finger holds added anything additional to the experience. For me, the curve wasn’t enough and the shaft too thin to really benefit from the texture on the handle. I have not tried it anally (it is a tad big for me) but you could use it that way as well. Many options with a two sided toy!
The steel brings temperature to the party. I am not a huge fan of temperature play, mostly because I don’t like the cold. And the 11 is COLD at first. It is like putting a frozen spoon on puffy eyes. I want that tissue swollen. I don’t want that to go away! But I could see use if you are edging a bit or really enjoy the sensation. On the other end of the spectrum, you can heat the 11. It gets VERY HOT so be careful. Dr. R ran it under hot water for just a few seconds and I really enjoyed that. It was warm enough I could feel it all the way inside me and it remained that way for awhile. The steel warms to body temperature quickly too, so even if you aren’t engaging in some temperature play, it feels amazingly warm after just a few minutes.

I know I have spoken before about the weight of Njoy toys, but the 11 takes the cake. There is an added sensation when you are getting fucked by something as heavy as this. It has its own pull, its own drag. There is a fullness you just don’t get with lighter toys. You are being filled with something of substance and you know it. It makes sure you know it.

I honestly don’t have any negatives to add about the 11. This toy is amazing if you like larger, gspot heavy, or metal toys. It is well made, quality, body safe, and easy to clean. What is not to love?

It is all at once overwhelming and the drive to orgasm with this thing is more like being thrown around an F1 track. You know a skilled driver is in control, but it certainly isn’t you and it is terrifyingly exhilarating. You are going to cum and you are going to cum HARD. You just need to hold on for the ride, try not to pass out, and wait for the champagne to pop!

Review: NJoy Fun Wand

funwndI wanted to love this toy. I really did. The Fun Wand was a high quality toy from a well respected company. NJoy is known for iconic toys like the Pure Wand and the Eleven. The shape was interesting. It is about 8″ long and easy to handle without having to reach awkwardly. It had a great curve for the G spot stimulation I like ending in a 1″ ball. It had beads on the other end that waved in teardrop shapes from .75″ to 1″. Everything pointed to this being an amazing, multiuse fun factory. Sadly, it just didn’t work out that way.

Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot to love about this toy. This is my first stainless steel toy and I love the material. It is safe, easy to clean, durable, but the temperature is something I was surprised I liked so much. It is cold. But not like glass when you chill it. It warms quicker than that. I am not a huge fan of temperature play with my glass dildos. Actually, I am not fond of vaginal temp play in general. But using this toy anally made me realize I like a shot of cold at the start. Anal play, for me, is very much about the stretch, the tension. Using this toy feels really good when everything has gotten a bit too hot. It shocks my nerves just enough, but warms up fast enough that it doesn’t derail me. It is also super smooth and glides very easily. Great anally. Not great vaginally. I find myself really missing the luxurious drag of silicone my Comet Wand brings to the party.

The shape of the toy is fantastic. The ‘S’ curve makes it easy to handle. The curve does hit my G spot right where it should. The beads are a perfect size, not too big, not too small. They pull in enough between them and the stainless is obviously firm enough to make insertion simple. But my major complaint is that the head of the toy isn’t big enough for me. I like wide G spot stimulation. Something that makes me feel full but also puts a lot of pressure right where I want it. This is a much more pin pointed toy. If you like a more localized G spot hit, this may be perfect for you. I need the roundness. It ends up being just enough to hint at arousal and makes me grab for another toy to get things going. Trying to get off on this alone leaves me frustrated. The beaded side of the toy does very little for me vaginally. It is just too small, and the smallest ball just exacerbates the aforementioned pointed stimulation issue.

The other thing I appreciate about this toy is the weight. I love a heavy toy. I love the weight of it internally. The pull. It adds another sensation that just speaks to me. But I found out the hard way that the weight of this toy combined with the ‘S’ shape can be a bit of an issue. When this toy is covered in coconut oil, it is very slippery. When it is inserted anally and then slips out of your hand, the heavier end spins around to the ground, turning the beads upside down. It is painful (to me anyway) to have a metal rod pointed to the ground stuck inside your ass. Anatomically, that is curving in the wrong direction. It was surprising in the wrong way. We had to stop anal play that night. We were more careful moving forward, but it could easily happen. The smooth texture and heft that I like so much can work against me.

This way Dr. R’s first NJoy purchase for us and we will certainly buy another. All of the things I like about this toy can be found in other toys in their line. I think I just need a bigger toy like the Pure Wand or the Eleven. Now I have another excuse to get one! Oh darn.

Review: Vixskin Maverick by Vixen

MaverickThe clouds have parted. I have seen the light. I have been wrong for years. About everything. This dildo, Vixskin’s Maverick by Vixen, is the exact toy I would have shied away from in a former life. I thought realistic dildos just seemed so…disembodied. I thought I preferred a more abstract cock. Something that looked like a TOY, not a poor dick with no sexy man attached. I also didn’t believe that expensive dildos could really be THAT different for the money (I did learn that awhile back, but my frugality still casts a cynical eye.) But, I was so very, very wrong. In the past year I have acquired several flesh toned, more authentic dildos (like the Captain). None of them compare to the Maverick. This toy is awesome. I have so many praises to sing that I am having a hard time organizing my thoughts. I will do my best.

Ok, shape. Maverick is a big toy. It is just slightly smaller than my TRex at 2″ wide. It is 7″ long. The shaft is thick all the way down with a pronounced coronal ridge and skin folds at the head. It curves oh so gracefully upward so that ridge hits my gspot in the very best way. The width is enough to fill me but the squishy outer layer makes it very comfortable. Because it is so full, that coronal ridge also stimulates my gspot. It is just all sensation. All around. 7 inches is a good length for me as well. It is long enough to play around with depth but not so long that I get cervical hits if we get too excited. That is a bit of a buzzkill when that happens. It also has a flared base, making it both anal safe and harness compatible. Although I am nowhere near ready to try a toy this size anally.

Texture. This is where the Vixskin line really has me. Vixskin are dual density like my Cush. That means that there is a firmer silicone “core” and a softer outer layer. They are engineered to resemble real skin. It sounds freaky (see disembodied comment above) but it works so well. The core is firm, but does have a bit of flex. It gives a bit on its own but won’t bend in half. The outer layer is very soft, both to the touch and in terms of density. It is squishy and velvety. It has a touch of drag which I love. A bit of friction is a good thing. And is warms to body temperature very quickly. When inserted, it feels amazingly life like. I told Dr. R it still lacks that electric, human quotient. But other than having a pulse, they nailed it. And unlike my TRex, I have not experienced the frustration upon orgasm with this toy. The soft layer gives me something to grab onto! It is just a warm, soft, filling cock…

As far as the safety specs, Vixen makes 100% premium silicone dildos so they are easy to clean and sterilize. Soap and water, boil, dishwasher. It is body safe, phthalate free.

I realized that some luxury toys are absolutely worth the money. There is a lot that goes into the design beyond “shaped like a penis” and engineering that goes into the material. It is well worth the investment for a quality, safe toy. I have also come to terms with the realistic dildo. It is meant to look and feel like a penis. That is not a bad thing. And as for the lack of man attached, I never thought about Dr. R! He is “attached”. Sexy man box ticked.

Review: Key Comet Wand by Jopen

DSC_0243I am obsessed with the Comet Wand. As in, each time I would pull it out to write about it, I would end up using it and get myself totally distracted from the writing part. It is delightfully weighty and fits me perfectly. I have come to learn that my body craves g-spot stimulation. While I can’t get off from external vibrations alone, I can get off from g-spot stimulation and the orgasms are SPECTACULAR with this toy.

At it’s simplest, the Comet wand is a curved, glass toy. It has the heft and firmness of a glass dildo, but what Jopen does beyond that is genius. They dip the end in smooth silicone. This was actually what led me to try this toy over the Pure Wand first. I like the friction that the silicone provides. I like to feel the drag as well as the thrust and this does not disappoint. There are some small ridges around the shaft but I don’t find they add anything special. They seem a bit more aesthetic than anything.

The shape of the wand fits my body like it was custom made for me. No fumbling around looking for the right angle. I insert it and it is right there. The head of the toy is 5″ around. It is big, but not huge. It gives me that broad g-spot coverage I like though. That sensation is much more FULL than say the pinpoint stimulation of a finger or two. The toy is heavy but very easy to maneuver. The heft combined with the friction does tire my hand out sometimes though. My vagina clamps onto this thing and hugs it for dear life. When my hand gets tired, I can even just push downward on the glass handle to apply pressure to my g-spot with no thrusting and get off without issue. It is that good.

I had small concerns about cleaning the wand because of the seam where the silicone meets the glass handle. It hasn’t proved to be an issue at all. Some of the ridges in my other glass toys are much harder to get clean. I was also concerned that seam would rub or chafe my vagina but it doesn’t at all. It is not even a factor. Don’t let that deter you.

DSC_0239I need to mention the orgasms from this toy as well. They are insane, fast, and make me ravenous for more. They are the sort of “wake the neighbors, claw the headboard, arch you off the bed” deep orgasms. And because they are internal for me, my clit isn’t all tickly and I can keep going. Hence why I keep coming back for more. Add in my Tango and holy hell….

This isn’t the cheapest toy, but at around $75, its not bad. I promise you will get use out of it. I have had mine for a few weeks and haven’t put it down yet. Go get one. Trust me.

Review: The Captain by Pleasure Works

It is a long running joke that I often call Dr. R “Captain” so it was no surprise he got me a dildo by the same name. Meet The Captain. The Captain is by far my most realistic dildo. Previously, I was not into the dismembered member look but I was wrong. I have grown to appreciate the look of a man’s cock, and The Captain definitely belongs to a man.

This is not a small dildo. It is no T-Rex, but at 7.5″ in length and nearly 2″ in girth it is a nice, thick cock. And it is thick all the way up to the coronal ridge. I can’t pinpoint why (maybe it is because it reminds me of my favorite cock, but don’t tell Dr. R I told you that), but I love that part. The ridge is pronounced but the shaft doesn’t slim down either. It almost bulges so when it is inside me it feels full all the way down and the ridge is still present. Good stuff. It is a straight shaft so any g-spot stimulation comes from that ridge and large head. It is not great if you are looking for specific g-spot stimulation, but you can certainly feel it if it is angled properly. It also has a flared base that is anal safe and harness compatible. It is not technically a suction cup, but the flare does stick to a smooth surface nicely. It couldn’t handle too much aggression, but it will stay where you put it.

It is made of matte silicone so it is body safe and easy to clean. The texture of the silicone on this dildo is really nice. It is almost silky. I have several matte silicone dildos but the touch of this one is different. It is quite realistic. It does attract hair though like a lot of silicone. There is some veining for texture but none are pronounced enough for me to really feel them. It just adds to the authentic quality. And it comes in four colors so you can pick your flavor – Black, Caramel, Coffee, or Vanilla! Mine is Caramel.

I guess I should continue to give realistic dildos a shot. This one is certainly in frequent rotation lately!

Review : Maia D3 Silicone Suction Cup Dildo

I am a sucker for ridges. Bumps, undulations, texture. They make me quiver like a harlequin romance novel. When Dr. R saw the Maia D3, he thought for sure it would be the ultimate toy for me. 7″ long, 1.75″ in diameter and BUMPY. The head is curved to stimulate the G-spot. Yippee! It is made of firm silicone. I was really excited to try this one. All signs pointed to the best toy ever for me.

But, sadly, it isn’t.

The ridges are quite pronounced. As I slid my hand over the hills and valleys, I was expecting them to do amazing things to the walls of my vagina. But in use, I barely feel them. I don’t know if it is because the dildo is so smooth or the ridges are too big or I thrust too fast. The feeling of the texture is totally lost. It just feels like a solid shaft. The head is a bit pronounced and the silicone firm enough I was expecting to get great G-spot stimulation. Again, I don’t. It just isn’t curved far enough. Not bulbous enough. Don’t get me wrong. This toy is fine. Ignoring the ridges, the size is good for me. It’s not too big or too small. It is waterproof, silicone, a pretty blue color. I have used it in play with a vibrator and it was…fine. That sums it up. All the things that I thought would make this toy amazing just fall short and over all it lands in the “fine” category. Maybe my expectations were too high for the greatest dildo ever created.

Review: Colours Pleasure Silicone Dildo

 photo 0d07e117-6f31-4196-8a09-b1adcc450cbd_zpsdjj0qvc2.jpg

This dildo was bought as a replacement for my first dildo, affectionately name Renaldo, once I learned the dangers of certain materials. Renaldo is a cyber skin material and Dr. R was replacing all of those for me. Nice guy. The Colours Pleasure dildo didn’t quite fit the bill. This guy is small. I know I just did a review on TRex so I know you are thinking, “sure. Small.” But it really is. It is 4.5″ around (1.5″ diameter), and the insertable length is about 5.5″. We’ve tried it several times but it just isn’t enough for me. Maybe I am becoming a size queen. It just doesn’t fill me and it’s not long enough to get me off. Honestly, it’s the size of an average penis, but dildos need to be more than that. They don’t have a person attached. They don’t provide that delicious weight on your hips, the heat, the smell….I digress.

It is not without redeemable qualities though! The silicone is great. It’s a pretty firm toy so you can get some good gspot stimulation if it’s angled right. It also has a suction cup base so you can use it hands free. The silicone and base also makes it safe for anal sex. It’s not too big to be intimidating. It fits great in a harness. That’s really what it’s used for in my house. So although it did not fill the void left by Renaldo, it’s not getting lonely in my kit. We will get plenty of use out of it. Maybe it needs a name too…

Review: TRex by Tantus

 photo image.jpg2_zpsa2e6wvz5.jpg

This is the toy in my “Stuffed” post. When Dr. R brought it out, I asked if it was for him because there was no fucking way that thing was going inside me. I’m no stranger to thick dildos but Tantus’s TRex is intimidatingly large. Or so I thought. The toy’s insertable length is about 6″, but the circumference of the shaft is a full 7″. And at the head, at the right angle, the rim adds another quarter of an inch. As always from Tantus, it is made of silicone and is body safe and easy to clean.

I have used this toy twice now and it’s less foreboding. The first time was in my previous post. We warmed up quite a bit but I was still surprised at how easily I could handle the toy. I have had two kids but I don’t think I’ve hit “hot dog down a hallway” status. It was very pleasantly full. My only gripe was that when I came it seemed there wasn’t enough room for my muscles to contract as hard as they wanted. It was as if the toy was actually inhibiting my orgasm. The second time we used it, I was having a hard time reaching orgasm and this really sent me over the edge. It was just the thing I needed and hit the spot that couldn’t seem to be reached. My orgasm was awesome. Use a lot of lube and some smaller toys to get ready for it. Don’t head for it first unless you are used to fat toys.

I don’t think it will be used for anything other than vaginal penetration at my house but it would be a safe anal toy if you can handle that. It’s not an every time toy for me for sure but it is awesome to have in my arsenal. Sometimes you need that extra girth to drive you over the edge. I no longer think Dr. R is crazy for ordering it. Who knows what limits he’ll test next?

Icicles 18

 photo image.jpg1_zpsx8wqhr45.jpg
In honor of the disappearance of all the ice and snow we had this winter, I pulled out a dildo I have had for a long time. I was never all that into my Icicles NO18, but I honestly didn’t use it alone. The first few times we used it, Dr. R was using it on me. I didn’t care for it, so it landed in the drawer and didn’t get much action. I have changed my mind!
Since having two kids, my g-spot has become my new friend. I don’t know if it was nerve damage from my epidural or birth in general, but there are times my clit just doesn’t cooperate. I really can’t get off with just an external vibrator anymore. I need the internal stimulation as well. SO…I have learned to adapt and really gotten better at finding my g-spot. This dildo’s curved shape and bulbous head do that very well, and the balls at the bottom make a nice handle. The small dots along the shaft give nice stimulation to the walls of my vagina as well. Not a huge bump, but a nice texture. I like glass dildos for g-spot stimulation. I need something seriously firm, and glass doesn’t budge. Using this and a vibrator gives me insanely intense orgasms. It is easy to clean and sanitize. Pipedream isn’t a company I would promote, but I bought this long before I knew better. If I were shopping now I’d look for a glass dildo with the same curve and bulb head. It’s a great toy and I’m happy I gave it another try!

Review of Tantus Cush O2

I love the Tantus Cush O2. Like, love, love it. It is my go-to dildo by leaps and bounds. I may have several, but my Cush is my favorite.  photo image.jpg1_zpseev7jzgm.jpg
It has an insert able length of 6.5″. Not too big, not too small. For me, it is just long enough that I can just hit my cervix if I want to really go for it but it’s not painful. The girth is key in my world. I am not a size queen by any means but I’ve had two kids. And pencil dicks never did it for me anyway. It is 1.75″ in diameter. Not a coke can, but a formidable size. The head is curved just enough that insertion is easy, but the dildo is certainly thick enough to fill me up delightfully.
It’s made of Pure silicone but has two layers. The inner core is firm. This guy is not going limp on you, and that cervical thrusting I mentioned earlier is made possible by the core. It doesn’t flop around. The outer layer is softer, squishier. It feels nice in your hand and makes for a more realistic feeling internally. It is a great combo and gives me the best of both worlds.
Now let’s talk about that curve. The design of the dildo is simple but brilliant. It is as if they actually researched the female form before designing this toy, not just emulating a penis. Tantus describes that curve as g-spot stimulation. It doesn’t work like that for me. I really prefer glass toys or something more curved and bulbous for g-spot stimulation. What that curve does do is stimulate the nerves at the opening of my vagina and internally. Women have a huge concentration of nerves right at the opening and this little swoop hits those beautifully. And it does so in a totally no rubbing/not painful way thanks to that softer outer layer. Drives me crazy when only inserted halfway or all the way to the base. Mmmmmm….I digress.
This toy can be used anally due to its flared base although I have not tried that. I have a hard time with Dr. R’s dick. Not sure I could handle my Cush, but more power to you if you can! The base also makes it harness friendly. And the 100% silicone makes it easy to clean. It is both bleachable and dishwasher safe.
I’ve heard rumors that Cush like to disappear. I would be online ordering a new one right away. Nothing else will do when I want that one…
