Mystim – The Sizzling Simon review

MystimI have to be honest, when I first asked for a toy to review, I didn’t have high hopes. You see, I don’t like toys. I’ve always been a more “handsy” girl, and I feel like toys have impeded on my process. You have to charge them for hours for only a few minutes of play, or the batteries give out unexpectedly, or there is a short in a wire somewhere, and you have to twist the cord to make the vibe work. One thrust too many and it stops vibing right at a crucial moment. All of these issues seemed really dumb, especially when I know my hand so well. Obviously, there are certain things that your hands can’t do, but I’ve never really needed insertion during my private time. I’m a clit-based masturbator, and I don’t care about dong size, rotating insertion balls, or anything fancy. I just want to watch some porn and get off quickly. I’m not looking for a date. However, I did perk up when the Mystim company was mentioned as a possible toy review. I love electro-stimulation. I mean I LOVE it. So, I figured why not give one of these toys a try, and see if I can be swayed from my anti toy-with-masturbation stance.

fullI was gifted the Sizzling Simon, which is a long (10.6 x 1.6 inch) vibrator with electrode capabilities. You can use just the vibe, or just the electro functions, as well as using the functions in tandem. My first attempt with the vibrator was while I was waiting for my partner to join me from downstairs. I decided I would start without him and see if I could figure out some functions. The handle has 6 buttons. There is an electro button, which has corresponding plus and minus buttons, and then there is a vibe button with corresponding plus and minus buttons. Each button has a symbol on it, no lettering. I decided to try the vibe button first. There are 8 vibration modes, and each one varies in rhythm and rotation of vibration location. Mystim advertises that the difference in vibrations helps with kegel exercises, but I was mostly interested in seeing if the vibe would work on my clit. Surprisingly, the vibe is nicely curved so that the tip of the vibe could rest on top of my clit while I held the handle. I went through a few of the settings and found that I really liked the highest, sustained vibe, without any pulse or variation for clitoral stimulation. I felt like this setting had the most power for what I was looking for in a solo experience. Although I was able to achieve orgasm with the tip of the vibrator, it got a bit more cumbersome as the design of the machine isn’t made for solo clitoral orgasm. The tip kept sliding from position, and it was a bit frustrating. Don’t get me wrong, it felt really good, but the shape of the machine didn’t work for my anatomy.

detailWhen my partner came into the room, I was ready to explore the other functions of the device. We started by inserting the vibe into me, and then going through the different modes to see which one I liked best. Honestly, I can’t tell you exactly which combination worked for me, but at one point I was confident that there was a finger in my ass. So, I asked my partner, “Are you in my ass?” He said he wasn’t and kept holding the vibe inside me and rubbing my clit with his fingers. “No, seriously-are you in my ass?” He started laughing and held up both of his hands to show that he did not have any fingers in my ass. “Oh my god, this is fucking awesome,” I said, and he began rubbing my clit again. Whatever combination he had done between the electro-which you really feel, and the vibration was perfect. With the Mystim still working its magic inside me, he used his mouth on my clit and brought me to one of the most intense orgasms I have ever had. Even after I came, with the vibe still going inside me, I felt like I was continuing to climax. It wasn’t the same type of orgasm from clitoral stimulation, it was deeper, emotional, even. My partner moved the Mystim inside me while I rocked in a rhythm, and then had an overwhelming vaginal orgasm. The electro function had made it feel like I was being analy stimulated from inside without the pain of insertion, or the warm-up needed for ass play, and the vibration of the pulse function made me a bit weepy. It was a good time.

Needless to say, I told my partner that I would love him forever, and all those things one promises after a really great orgasm, but it was a combination of the first clitoral orgasm (facilitated by my partner) and then the vibe/electro stimulation that made a really great experience. Plus, sharing toys with your partner is always fun. It introduces the element of discovery, and makes the two of you feel like you are on a journey together. The Mystim has become an active part of our sex life, and I would highly recommend it as an addition to sex with your partner. For me, this is not really a solo-type vibrator, but it is an amazing accompaniment to a romantic evening. It is easy to wash, has a very discrete case, USB charger, and a kegel exercise program included. This is a grown-up’s sex toy; a fancy, well-made, and stylish toy. This line of E-Stim vibes won the 2013 Venus- most innovative new toyline award, and the eroFame-most innovative production line award in 2013. I really like having this toy in my arsenal, and I would seriously suggest investing in one – or many- of their products.

Hot Toy Reviews: MONA 2

2015-06-25_17-02-06

When I received the LELO MONA 2, I was extremely, extremely excited. I’d always gone to sex shops and looked longingly in the glass case where the most precious of vibrators were kept, and now I had one of my very own to review. The LELO MONA 2 comes packaged in a fairly large box that holds a smaller, sexier black box inside it. Once you lift the lid off the black box, the MONA 2 is nestled comfortably in a velvety liner.

The MONA 2 comes in 3 colors-purple, “cerise” (aka pink), and red. I was lucky enough to get the red one, which conveniently matches all of my bedroom décor as it is now a staple on my nightstand. One of the most convenient or inconvenient features of the MONA 2, depending on how organized of a person you are, is that it is a rechargeable toy. I’ve used the MONA 2 often enough to know the crushing disappointment that occurs when you’re halfway to climax and the vibration shutters to a sudden halt, all because I forgot to charge it in a while. Fumbling around in the dark for the charger with my phone flashlight has become an annoying aspect of my bedtime routine, but I digress. The MONA 2 comes with its own silky drawstring pouch for discreet safekeeping and a sample of LELO brand lubricant, which I still have yet to try.

2015-06-25_17-03-33

On the topic of lube, I found the MONA 2 to be pretty damn impossible to insert without it. Maybe I’m just impatient, but when I want to get off I tend not to bother romancing myself beforehand. Yes, the matte finish silicone is heavenly smooth to the touch, and the curvature of the toy is a natural fit for G-spot stimulation, but something about the width of the head was just a little too big for me to manage on my own. With some handy dandy lubricant and a little patience, however, I was ready to enjoy what @JudyHologram referred to as the “Holy Grail of vibrators.”

The MONA 2 has 6 varying vibration modes, all whisper-quiet. So quiet, in fact, that I’ve been able to use the MONA 2 while my boyfriend slept soundly next to me, and he was none the wiser. The diameter measures 1.5 in circumference at its widest point, and the length is an easily manageable 4.3 inches. The curved head of the MONA 2 rested snugly on my G-spot and once I chose the vibration pattern that most suited me, the climax was inevitable and face-flushingly radiant.

While both of these things are wonderful, I don't recommend storing your sex toys and baked goods in the same place
While both of these things are wonderful, I don’t recommend storing your sex toys and baked goods in the same place

So start saving up, because this luxury vibrator costs $139-but trust me, it’s worth it. If you crave a toy that penetrates and stimulates at just the right angles, the MONA 2 is a must-have. Just make sure you stock up on lube and keep this bad boy charged, and you’re in for a real treat!

Sex Toys for the Holidays

Now that we’re in the midst of the Holiday season of 2014, we’re all scrambling to find the perfect gift for our special someone, or even just a treat for ourselves! Kids aren’t the only people who look forward to finding toys under the tree, so I visited Philadelphia’s Kink Shoppe, a sex positive and gender neutral adult toy and fetish boutique and spoke to Caitlin, a sex educator and customer service representative. She gave me a ton of information about how to go about buying sex toys for your significant other, and had dozens of great gift ideas!

“When it comes to purchasing something for a partner, a lot of people either tend to think about what they want to see their partner using or what they think their partner would like, and if they haven’t had a lot of experience using toys with their partner, that can often backfire. So they might buy something and say, ‘You know, I bought this dildo because it looks like me.’ It can sometimes not be what they want. Usually I’ll tell people that if you don’t have a lot of experience using toys with your partner to think about what they like or ask them what they like and what they want. In terms of buying things for yourself, it’s the same thing. Think about sensations you like. It’s good to experiment with your body and feel around.”

Caitlin also recommends taking into consideration what materials are in your sex toys so as to avoid risk of injury or disease. “Toxins in sex toys are becoming less of a problem now. I know that a lot of toys now use less pthalates, which is a really toxic material that softens plastic and can cause irritation and can possibly lead to problems with your endocrine system. But there’s still toxic materials and porous materials in general; jelly, elastomer, TPR, things like that are still going to degrade over time and get certain bacteria trapped in them. They could potentially transmit an STI or a bacterial or vaginal yeast infection. So generally I tell people that it’s better to keep with non porous materials like silicon, glass, metal, stone, ABS Hard plastic, ceramics, and treated wood.”

Keeping in mind the who, what, where, when, why, and how in mind, I asked Caitlin what sex toys would be good for anyone to gift to a female partner, especially someone who has never used sex toys before. She recommends, you guessed it, vibrators! “A lot of women can’t orgasm without clitoral stimulation, and vibrations are really good for that.” She showed me We Vibe’s Tango and Touch vibrators, two cute-as-a-button Bullet style vibes. The Tango is a hard-plastic bullet that can also fit into toys with bullet sleeves, including We Vibe’s own Pleasure Mates collection, making the versatile Tango perfect for whatever mood strikes you and your lady. The Touch is wider and covered in silicon, thereby giving We Vibe’s powerful motor a softer transmission of sensation.

If you’re looking for a vibrating toy that can be used either internally or externally, Caitlin points towards the strong and waterproof Lelo Mona 2, whose powerful vibrations will hit both the g-spot and clitoris.

What about toys that you and your lady can use together? “Any toy is a couple’s toy,” said Caitlin, “but a toy made specifically as a [straight] couple’s toy would be the We-Vibe, which is a c-shaped vibrator that can be worn during penetrative sex and vibrates against the clitoris and g-spot.” Not going to lie, the We-Vibe is my current dream toy. However, Caitlin does caution that the We-Vibe “doesn’t work for everyone. It might not sync up with everyone’s anatomy, and not everyone likes how it feels, but that’s any toy. There’s no guarantee that somebody’s going to like it.”

tantus c-sling sex toys
Tantus C-Sling

We then talked about a couple’s toy that I have a little more experience with: cock rings! These guys can give those of you with penises a harder, more sustained erection and you can wear it while your partner present or while you’re having some alone time. In terms of non-vibrating rings, Caitlin recommends the Tantus Super Stretch C-Ring, a stretchy silicone ring that is super inexpensive at about $10. You can also try the Tantus C-Sling, made with a firmer silicon than the C-Ring. This guy has a teardrop shaped base that will stimulate your perineum (taint, grundle, gooch, fleshy fun bridge, etc.) for added orgasmic possibilities!

Jejoue Mio

Vibrating cock rings have gotten me into trouble in the past; whenever I put them on my boo’s cock and turn it on, the ring’s goofy space-age look and the loud vibrations make me think that his dick is a rocket ship, sending me into a fit of giggles. I don’t think that I would have that problem with the elegantly designed and whisper quiet Jejoue Mio. According to Caitlin, “It’s silicon, waterproof, rechargeable, has a really stretchy ring, and it’s really strong. It’s top of the line because it’s more comfortable than other rechargeable cock rings that I’ve seen on the market.”

Tenga Eggs
Tenga Egg collection

If you’re looking for a stocking stuffer that takes its name seriously seriously, give your guy Tenga’s Egg or Cup! These Japanese masturbation sleeves with keep your penis-owning SO happy while you’re away. The Egg can be washed out and used a few times, while the pre-lubricated Cup is for a single use. These are especially great for a guy who isn’t ready to commit to a more serious sleeve. “The cups would be a good one to start out with because they’re similar to the bigger ones like the Tenga Flip Hole… which opens up so that you can clean it out.”

Tantus C-Sling

It’s your time to shine, lesbians! “Some lesbians like penetrative toys, others don’t. If you do, I would recommend a strap on harness of some sort.” Caitlin showed me the SpareParts Hardwear harness, which is super adjustable and machine washable, as well as a simple O’Ring Harness which allows you to change the size of the ring and work with whatever size cock you want. From there, you have lots of different options for what cock you like; there’s the super realistic VixSkin line from Vixen Creations, or you can get a totally bonkers fantasy cock from Bad Dragon. Personally, I’m head over heels in love with the beyond cute and friendly looking dildos from BS Atelier.

If someone in your relationship is a transman looking for a really realistic toy, Caitlin again points toward the VixSkin line from Vixen Creations. “They’re super realistic in terms of texture and look, and they come in a few different skin tones. And not necessarily for sex, but New York Toy Collective makes really nice packers.” Caitlin also showed me New York Toy Collective’s Love Bump, which adds balls to your dildo and includes a bullet vibe. As for transwomen, “It really depends on the person. Any trans person is going to have very varying preferences, and some trans ladies might prefer not to be penetrated. It depends where they are in their transition.”

Tantus Beginner Ball Gag sex toys

If you and your partner are interested in exploring kink and BDSM, Caitlin and I both suggest that you learn about safety first, be it through books, films, whatever. Check out Tristan Taormino’s Guide To Bondage For Couples, Midori’s Expert Guide To Sensual Bondage, and Tristan Taormino’s Expert Guide to Kinky Sex for Couples. Once you know what you’re getting yourself into, try Tantus’ Beginner Ball Gag. “It’s silicon and it fills your mouth, but it has a small base so it doesn’t prop your jaw open too much, which can be uncomfortable.”

njoy pure plugs
nJoy Pure Plugs

If you want something to put in your butt, check out NJoy’s Pure Plugs and Pfun Plug for the male g-spot. They’re made of weighty surgical stainless steel, with a deliciously bulbous head and a tapered stem for easy retention. Not only that, they’re just gorgeous and super sexy looking.

All of these toys (and many more!) are available at Kink Shoppe in Philadelphia, or at your own locally owned adult store. All of us at HMFH wish you the merriest of sex lives as you head into the new year!

    in full

    Firstly, Blush has done it again with their packaging. Is there any other company that strives to present sex toy fun in such an elegant and streamlined way? Pfffft. Not that I’ve seen. And for that, I’m a fan all the way.

    This particular Flow I used was mint green, and though I’ve seen the darling berry hue, I’m a fan of all green. So I’ll tell you what, somehow that made it more enjoyable. Honestly, am I just that high-maintenance that even color matters? The mind-blowingness of the massager, however, came not in color but in touch. It’s heaven to touch. It brought to mind tons of words that start with “f” and “s”, like svelte, feathery, soft, fine, silken, satiny, fuckable…and velvety. It’s made of pure hypoallergenic silicone, and is pfthatlthapfzsate  phthlalate-free, so it’s nice and safe and zen for your baby bits.

    I really, really didn’t like that I had to dig through all my electronics to find something that still worked on AAA batteries (note to emja: they are available to buy). First-world problems, ya know? So I took some out of my mini chime clock and unscrewed Flow’s lid. It doesn’t say how to put the AAAs in, but if someone complains about that then you need to back away from the electronic anyway. And once in, just twist, and push the only button on the toy there is. A nice, light, steady vibration kicked in, but I was in no mood for teasing, so I went right to setting three: the hard buzz.

    The noise really was soft, and I felt truly at ease because of it. I didn’t use lube, but if you do, keep the toy soft and clean and use water-based. I loved putting the head of it to my clit because there was a wider space to work with. If it gets too pin-pointy I get jumpy and it’s no good for anyone. I’ve been known to kick a good man once or twice purely out of nerve reaction for too much pointy-tongue.

    Since the girth is a rather nice size for a massager, and the insertable length is 4.75 inches, best believe I rode that thing like a happy animal. It was great, wasn’t too big (I’d offend the boyfriend if it was, anyway), and definitely not tiny, so I relished in the fuck-and-buzz method I prefer. Although I played around with the pulsating settings, pulses aren’t really what I’m looking for (I’ve mentioned that before), but honestly if it was missing I’d be bummed. Don’t ask; I’m odd in preference.

    I finished not too quickly, because I was having fun with my method. It was an orgasm that was powerful, and I’d like to attribute that to the wider head of it, creating vibrations that were strong and more spread around the surface of my clit-zone. I had fun. I wanted to buy the Flow a drink or give it the preferential side of the bed for the night, but washed it off with anti-bacto soap instead. Also, don’t submerse this, or any of the OHM vibes. It’s waterproof, but I cherished it so much that I didn’t even dare bring it into the shower in case I got carried away.

    Find out where to buy this. And be a fan of Blush. They may toss me a toy here and there to review, but we have an agreement — no bias bs, just orgasm rating.

10 Reasons Why Women Watch Porn (Or Should)

Porn is the ultimate slice of cake. It can be tempting, revolting, or have different flavors (and if that’s what your into, it’s totally up to you). Sure, it’s known that men indulge quite a bit, but women are all up in that ish too, because, you know we also have the internet.

 

1. It’s like a 5 Hour energy shot for your sex drive when your partner(s) is/are getting boring or predictable or absent.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Spanking kind of hurts in real life. And [enter your secret fantasy here] would definitely hurt in real life.

 

 

 

3. That multi-speed, multi-angle, multi-attachment Dolphin 5000 vibrator pretty much requires the visual aid of porn to get you off since it’s starting to actually scare you even if you just hold it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Your boy really needs to be taught new moves, and the pictures in your Kama Sutra book are just like…no.

 

 

5. Boobs are really, really pretty to look at.

 

 

6. The sitcom parodies, like now I can watch the geeky crush I have on The Big Bang Theory get dirty.

 

7. The lingerie can be flippin gorgeous and would look even better on you in real life.

 

8. Oh, it isss possible to bend that way. That’s funny.

 

9. Female porn stars pretty much have the best self-confidence, and you just gotta support that.

 

10. James Deen, duh.

 

 

 

Non-Sexual uses for a Vibrator

I recently found this article about a vocal teacher at a college who uses vibrators on his student’s necks to massage their vocal cords (sounds way dirtier then I imagine it is). This article piqued my interest in what other uses there could be for our favorite toys.

I searched and searched and only found one other non-sexual use for a vibrator – Breastfeeding mothers can use a vibrator to break up clogged milk ducts (wish I knew this 2 years ago!).

I know there have got to be some other uses that our creative readers have found, so please share your non-sexual uses in the comments.

HotMovies4Her Sex Tips – Picking Out The Vibrator For You

HotMovies4Her Sex TipsIt’s been a quiet progression over the last few years, but it’s apparent that vibrators are making into pop culture and have become a household name.  That’s right, at this point most people not only know what a vibrator is, but many of them own their very own!  How exciting! But while many people know about vibes and some own them, I would say that most folks don’t know the specific of picking out a vibrator that is right for them.  Today’s HotMovies4Her Sex Tips offers up four tips on how to choose the most buzz-worthy toy for your bits.

1) An innie, an outtie, or both? The main point of the vibrator is to add a delicious buzzing stimulation to wherever you put it in contact with your body.  But where to put it??? Vibrators come in not only all colors and sizes, but also different shapes that dictate where they usually touch the body.  The three most common vibes are ones that are designed to stimulate just the clitoris, ones that are made to use internally and ones that combine the two and offer both functions (like a rabbit-style vibe).  Think about where you like to experience sensation and go from there.  A good idea may be to pick up one cheap vibe of each style and test them out to see what you like best.

My First Rabbit2) A faint murmur or one hundred angry bees?  Now that you’ve decided where you want to stimulate, let’s talk about how much you want to stimulate it.  Some folks absolutely love a firm, jackhammer buzzing, while others are way happy with the light flutter of a breeze over their delicate parts.  Pick up the vibes and test time out to get a sense of the power they pack.  One great way to test the vibrations out is to try it on the tip of your nose.  The skin there is nice and sensitive, just like other parts of the body I know…

3) I can feel your pulse.  In the same vein as figuring out what power of vibration you fancy, you should also think about what patterns of vibration you enjoy.  I know, ANOTHER choice here!  Buzzing comes in a bunch of varieties – constant, gradual increasing, pulsing, etc.  You can keep the speed the same all the way through, or change it up, whichever you prefer.  Test the patterns available on the toys you are interested and see if you like what you feel!

4) Powered up. Another option you have when picking out a vibrator is deciding what type of power source you want.  Many vibrators are battery powered, but there are a bunch that are made of plugging into the wall outlet (like the Hitachi Magic Wand), and as of recent, many companies are putting out vibes with rechargeable batteries and charging cords.  It’s all about preference, but there are a few things to think about, such as – plug in vibes are usually much stronger; batteries are expensive, so getting a toy that doesn’t need them may cut down on costs; while you can change the batteries on a toy that is out of juice, a rechargeable toy means that you need to wait for it to power back up to play.  Just a little food for thought.

Good luck getting the vibe that is just right for you!

Trashy Trash and Porno Prom – Link Love is Here!

Happy Humpday!  Welcome back to the midweek stretch.  Last week both Ginger and I were off doing our Burlesque Hall of Fame/Philadelphia Trans Health Conference (respectively) things, so we were unable to get a Link Love out for you all to celebrate the hump, but today we are back with more smutty news than you can shake a dildo at!  And hopefully you can wield that toy and read at the some time, because here we go!


– Oh yeah, that really is the trashiest thing you’ll see today… well, unless you have a job like mine…

– While I prefer the genitals in my life to smell like clean genitals, I’m sure there are some folks out there that are interested in how to make your vag taste awesome.

– A leading American nun (I’m not even sure what that means) wrote a book that includes praise for female masturbation and approves gay sex and divorce.  Guess who’s not too happy… the Vatican.  Go, awesome nun, go! (Via Jezebel)

– An armed man in Brazil walked into a luxury sex toy store in Brasilia, tied up the salesperson, and made off with an 18-carat gold-plated vibrator selling for $4,000.  Too bad he forgot the charger… and the gold plating will be super hard to get off due to the stainless steel core.  I guess he stole himself a really fancy paperweight.

– We all know Joanna Angel likes it doggy style, but what we didn’t know was her love for dogs!  Check out this super cute pup that she and Jessie Lee adopted.  Pixie!!


– Who doesn’t love sexy trivia?  I know I do!

– An awesome article from Erika Lust about how she will tell her daughters that she works in porn.  That Erika Lust is so amazing.

– And lastly, a couple weeks back, this high school kid, Mike Stone, tweeted to porn star Megan Piper, asking him to attend prom with him.  She said yes, but sadly his school forbid her from coming with him.  Total bummer for all around, but the Daily Show’s reporter Jessica Williams went to interview Stone and Piper and one of the mothers that agreed with the school’s decision.  Hilarious.  (via AVN)

Seriously, what’s the big deal?

Hope this gets you through til the weekend!

Make Me Over

The Make Me Over (thank you, Babeland) is from OhMiBod’s Bedroom Kandi line created by Kandi Burruss from the Real Housewives Of Atlanta.  I’m not going to lie – this elicited a big eye roll on my end.  At first glance it looks like a big powder puff case. I thought it was totally corny and I wasn’t really that enthused.  Sure, I recognize that OhMiBod makes quality products, but I’ve seen so many crappy vibrating lip sticks and hair brushes that it is hard to wrap my noodle around the idea of the make-up case as a decent sex toy.  To my pleasure and surprise, I was mistaken.Make Me Over

Once you get inside of the sleek black cardboard box, you find another sexy little box that holds the Make Me Over.  Inside, (what looks like) a powder puff case rest on silky soft material.  Here is how this totally discrete vibe works:

The black powder puff looking case comes with a decent mirror and holds the actual vibrator that is modeled to look like the puff.  The beautiful case also acts as the charger – just plug in the provided USB cable.  Love it.

The fully charged vibe gives you an hour and a half of usage.  The circular toy is 3 inches wide and less than an inch thick.  It is made from soft silicone and an awesomely convenient strap is included to slip your fingers through.  It is splash proof, although I admit I didn’t test this feature.Make Me Over

I am definitely a girl that likes overall vulva stimulation so I love that the Make Me Over covers so much surface area.  While the vibration is strongest towards edges of the toy, it is dispersed through out.  This is not the vibe for direct clit stimulation.   The buzz is not overly intense like the Hitachi or pocket rocket, rather it is more thumpy and diffuse.  I prefer this, but those who require more zing will be left wanting more.  My only complaint is that the little metal part that receives the charge is exposed right in the middle of the vibrator.  I can’t really think of a better place to put it, but I think a little silicone flap could be added to cover it for when it is actually being used.  It didn’t hinder my enjoyment, it just seemed odd to place to place the metal piece on my vag!  I should mention that there is a medium-low noise level.Make Me Over

The silicone surface is soft and comfortably textured.  It is ideal for pressing against yourself as the intensity builds.  Even with the little metal piece, there are no moment-ruining seams to catch or pinch my goods.  The little strap is snug and totally helpful for easy handling.  The controls are placed near your finger tips, although you definitely have to remove your hand from the strap or use your other hand to press the buttons.  There are low to high settings with a few different pulsation patterns, although I’m a steady buzz kind of girl.  There are plus and minus buttons that you cycle though accordingly.  Hold down the plus sign for a few seconds to turn on and do the same with the minus sign to turn off.

You definitely have to take care and spot wash with soap and water or toy cleaner.  Don’t get the little metal plate wet and make sure it is completely dry before putting it back in the case.  Remember, no silicone lube with silicone toys!  Use water based only!

Before wrapping up I’ll add that I used it alone, but I think it could totally be used on your partner.  The strap may be a little snug on larger hands, but it would be perfect for playing with your lover.

I love this toy.  It offers far more than I expected and is actually tailored to my liking (overall diffuse stim, silicone, strap, rechargeable, pretty, etc).  Kandi, I retract the eyeroll.
