GiGi

Holy guacamole is all I have to say. Yes, this toy is a bit pricey. No, it’s not 10″ long with beads and whirring animals. Aside from a small “charged” light, it doesn’t glow, or light up, or shoot rockets into the air. Well, who cares? It made me make noises I had never made before…and let me tell you, I have made many a sound. This toy carries a punch (and is rechargable rather than battery operated, so you’re being earth and wallet friendly too!), has 5 different program settings, and hits your g-spot more accurately than an MLB … Continue reading GiGi

G-Spot Flexi

It was time…time to try out the G-Spot Flexi. To be honest, I was not excited about this toy. It creeped me the fuck out. It was pink and bumpy…and when I took it out of its package, it was bendy. Not flexible, but bendy. It makes a horrible noise when you bend it, like some party favor from when your best friend turned 10. I showed it to my partner who looked at it skeptically, and after hearing it bend, placed it back in my nightstand. It looked like I was on my own to review this pink, bumpy … Continue reading G-Spot Flexi

The Straight Girl’s Guide to Sleeping with Chicks

While I wasn’t sure what I, a queer woman, was going to do with a guide for straight girls, I resigned myself to reading it – the things we do for the good of humankind, it’s horrible, I know. Luckily for me, the book was quite well written, and actually provided some good information (particularly on safer sex for women who sleep with women, something many queer and lesbian sex books often leave in the dark). She explains her useage of the word straight, which I appreciated, and gives a plethora of tips in many areas related to sex with … Continue reading The Straight Girl’s Guide to Sleeping with Chicks

Waterproof Beaver

The toy I got to review this week was none other than the Waterproof Beaver , a busy little creature looking to make me happy. As we are all well aware, I am not a huge fan of animal toys, so I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about this toy…but at least it wasn’t pink (the picture makes it look pink, but really, it’s much more of a purple). If I’m going to get a dual clit/penetration vibe, I usually look for those outside of the animal kingdom, like the Japanese G-Spot Squirmy. At the very least, the batteries were … Continue reading Waterproof Beaver

Sport Massager

I will never cease to be amused by sex toys that bill themselves as massagers (does anyone remember that episode of Sex in the City, where the store clerk keeps telling Samantha that her Hitachi Magic Wand is really a “massager” since they don’t sell “vibrators.” I’m just waiting for that to happen to me someday). However, this massager was quite worth its weight in batteries (2 AA), so I was willing to look past the packaging and move onto the fabulous toy itself. This toy is built for choice and options. It comes with 5 (five!) different head attachments … Continue reading Sport Massager

I Love Female Orgasm

Are you female? Or is your partner female? If so, this is my number one recommendation for your book collection. This book combines academic research and know-how with fun facts, anecdotes from real women, and easy to understand writing, making it an excellent book that embodies both academia and pop-culture. With everything from oral sex to anal sex, biology to sexology, it covers pretty much everything you might ever need to know about female orgasms. Even better, it’s a female-friendly (obviously) and queer-friendly book, making it accessible and relevant to everyone, regardless of your identity and orientation. These authors know … Continue reading I Love Female Orgasm

The Superbe

The Superbe is a toy made by Candida Royalle’s sex toy line Natural Contours, and you can tell this toy is made by a woman, for women. In addition to being a pleasing color (read: NOT bright pink!) and a non-phallic shape, the Superbe is quiet, easy to use, 3-speed AND comes in a nice little black box that is reuseable for storage purposes. All in all, it’s a fantabulous starter toy for any woman, and a great toy for people that aren’t HUGE sensation junkies (it wasn’t quite strong enough for my liking, although I certainly was able to … Continue reading The Superbe

The Rolling Stud

The Rolling Stud… I mentally call it Rolling Thunder for 2 reasons: 1. the word “stud” makes me giggle and I think “thunder” is sexier, and 2. this thing is loud. Not buzzing loud, but mechanical loud. If you like to play in silence, this is not the toy for you, but if you like loud music (or don’t mind the noise), then you should be able to drown it out. Regardless, that’s my only complaint. The Rolling Stud (thunder!) has a thick and beefy main shaft which is wide and long (awesome), with a smaller compadre attached by a … Continue reading The Rolling Stud

The Raquel (by Vixen Creations)

It’s another pink toy…I know you’re all expecting a negative review, and a few comments about my negativity about toys of the pink variety. Well, SUPRISE! The Raquel dildo is probably my second favorite toy EVER (behind the Wand, and seriously, can anything beat that?) and is certainly my favorite dildo I’ve ever tried. The Vixskin from which it is created feels absolutely divine (and warms up to body temperature quickly), and the properties of this toy combine the feel-good benefits of jelly (but without those pesky phthalates), and the fabulousness of silicone (like being easy to clean). Rock on! … Continue reading The Raquel (by Vixen Creations)

Sunshine Vibe

Oh, little Sunshine Vibe, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways… to start off, it’s not so little! It’s about 5 inches around and about 4 inches long (a big bullet or a skinny-minnie it ain’t!), comprised of 3 sort of bulbous shapes together, almost like a snowman – so externally the big parts line it up almost perfectly with your sensitive bits in row (from front to back). Another plus (or minus, depending on your views) – it’s jelly so it’s nice and mushy soft, not a hard solid piece mashing up against your own softness … Continue reading Sunshine Vibe
