A simple yet elegant beginner toy. The Starter is the perfect choice for a first toy or a toy you want to go slow with.  Small and smooth, with a slight head and a 1” diameter, the Starter allows you to safely try a new experience and explore at your own pace.

Tantus Starter comes beautifully packaged in the usual Tantus’ white box with 3 clear openings around it to show the toy like it is suspended. In the back of the box, there’s information about the company and the products they carry. Once you open the top of the box, you’ll find the toy resting in a clear plastic tray that surrounds the toy to hold it in place.

The Starter is available in black, purple haze, an sunset and they all have a glossy finish and tiny sparkles all over. It’s made from Tantus’ unique blend of Ultra-Premium Silicone, one of the safest toys on the market. It’s smooth and flexible and has a diameter of 1″ and an insertable length of 4.8″

I haven’t tried anything to do with anal and I have never really experimented much in the past. I honestly I don’t even know why I was so skeptical about it, I guess I just always found it to be quite uncomfortable.

Starter by Tantus is a great size for a beginner. I was pleasantly surprised at the texture of the Starter, it’s firm yet has a good level of flexibility. There should be no problems inserting it with plenty of lube. If its being used for the first time, it’ll big enough that you could feel it and and the pressure, but not so big that it’ll feel uncomfortable. It’s not offensive, and slim enough not to make you yelp.

The toy, which can also be used as a regular dildo, has a flared base that eases any worry of losing it inside and easy and comfortable insertion. It also has a slight head that it isn’t too intense or intimidating.
When I received it, I was a little worried about the sizing. Having never experimented something like this before I had no idea whether that would be small enough. But of course, I decided though to give it ago, did a little fingering to get myself loosened up and it slid in easily; No holding back on the lube. And while I didn’t insert it all the way in (because well, it felt strange!) or orgasm from it alone, it certainly added something more to the experience when used in conjunction with a vibrator.

 

Overall, the Starter makes it easy to explore without pain or fear or mess. It’s not too big if you’re just starting to explore, or a brilliant warm up. It’s a great beginners toy and I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in starting anal play or a first timer.

Review: L’amourose Vera


Proof that big things do come in small packages, VERA is a compact personal massager with remarkable power and motion versatility. Its soft, comfortable exterior, waterproof form and intuitive design make this a perfect piece for beginners and those on the go.
Compact
Waterproof
Rechargeable 
vibrating modes
12 vibration speeds
18 month guarantee
Available in 3 different colors
 
The Vera features 12 vibration speeds, which control the power of the vibrations within each mode, and 5 modes, including 4 patterns and a constant speed setting.

The vibrations are controlled by the 3 buttons found on one side of the vibrator. It features a central button which cycles repeatedly through the patterns and a plus (+) and minus (-) sign at either end to scroll up and down through the speed settings.

Vera
 does not have a memory function and so it will always begin on setting 1 at the lowest speed. To turn the toy on, press the plus button for a couple seconds and the vibrations will begin on the first setting. When you’re ready to turn off the toy, you have to press and hold down the minus button until the vibrations cease. 
 
Vera comes with some residual charge, enough to turn it on and feel it. but I would definitely recommend giving it a full charge (which takes approx. 90 minutes) before using it. That will give you around 3 hours of play time depending on the setting used.
 
To charge it, simply plug the charging dock into a wall socket or a computer and then place the Vera, jewel side down, onto the docking station. Nice and easy! Make sure the two metal dots on the vibrator align with the two metal pins on the charging dock, if it’s positioned right a pale blue light will flash repeatedly.
&
Vera measures just 3.5 inches in length and 2 inches wide, it’s fairly small, but not so small that it’s uncomfortable to hold. Its size and shape is perfect for fitting in your palm. Vera is only coated in silicone just like Lelo toys. Its top is created from ABS plastic and its underside is coated in an FDA approved body safe silicone. So, it’s a pretty rigid vibrator. The silicone is not squishy but it feels silky soft to the touch. 
 

The Vera is completely waterproof, so clean up is a breeze! Simple use an anti-bacterial soap and water or your favorite sex toy cleaner, then dry and storage it in either in the box it came or the provided velvet bag/pouch. To avoid damaging the silicone, you should only use water based lubricants. But always make sure you pay particular attention to the line where the silicone and plastic meet when cleaning it.

 

 
Vera is packaged beautifully. It arrives in this sleek matte black box featuring a picture of the toy and the logo of the company in gold, as well as information about it on the sides.
 
Inside, you’ll find a solid black box with an elasticated ribbon around it. When you open it, you’ll find Vera sitting on it’s charging base and the warranty card, storage bag, manual and plug on the other side. It is all packaged very carefully inside, with attention to little details. It’s not very functional once you’ve opened it, but it’s so fancy and luxurious.

The build and the material quality of Vera impressed me as soon as I saw it. The powerful and rumbling motor is pretty impressive too for such a petite vibrator. I was also pleased on how quiet it is even on its highest speeds. No one will hear it at all through a closed door. On the highest speed, Vera’s vibrations are deep, rumbling and powerful. On the lowest one, it’s gentle and makes a rumbling purr.
I found that it takes me longer to orgasm with Vera due to its lack of in-point tip. I simply wasn’t able to apply the vibrations to a specific area on my clitoris and that was very frustrating. When I changed my habits slightly, accepted its less focused type of stimulation and applied more pressure the Vera managed to make me orgasm slowly but surely.

I believe if it had a pin-point tip, everything would have been different an I would have enjoyed it a lot more. If L’amourose ever makes a product similar to it, I will be getting it for sure.

Vera’s rumbling vibrations felt good but it’s broad shape had me working for an orgasm. We definitely have a love-hate relationship.
If you’re a power seeker or like/need pin-point stimulation like me I wouldn’t recommend the Vera. However, if you prefer a broader touch, Vera will be just perfect for your tastes.

Review: Penthouse Brand Spankin’ Toy Cleaner

IMG_5242

Quickly, neatly and very effectively sanitizing favorite toys for safe, worry-free enjoyment, Penthouse Brand Spankin’ Toy cleaner kills germs with the help of tricolsan, a well-known antibacterial cleanser used in medical facilities. Simply spray fully over the surface of toys, wait 30 seconds and wipe with a clean cloth, then rinse in water and dry thoroughly dry.

Toy cleaners are essential and something you should always have in your toy drawer in my opinion. And while soap and water get the job done too, cleaner is definitely my favorite go-to method. They’re so versatile and easy to use!

The bottle of Penthouse Brand Spankin’ Toy Cleaner is a decent size and the label isn’t too in-your-face. The design is pretty simple, but if you want to make it even more discreet all you have to do is take off the label and simply place it with your standard toiletries. The spray top is also very easy to use and has never failed me yet.

According to the instructions, you have to hold the spray a couple inches away from the toy that needs to be cleaned. Once sprayed on the entire surface, you have to wait for 2-3 minutes before wiping it dry.

The substance feels like water, it doesn’t stick and is pretty much odourless. A little goes a long way with this product. After I rinse the toys with water, I let them either dry by themselves for a few minutes or dry them with a towel before I put them back in their bags. My sex toys are as good as new and ready for another round!

Toy cleaners are great for a quick wipe-down when you’re ready to get busy. However, I recommend cleaning the toys right after you use them, that way you never have to worry about whether or not you cleaned your favorite toy the last time you used it. It’s a smart way to make sure your toy is always clean so you don’t end up getting close with some unwelcome bacteria.

PHTCPTC

This toy cleaner lived up to the standards so I definitely would recommend it to anyone looking for a  simple and quick way to keep their favorite toys clean and safe! I will definitely buy it again when I run out. If you’re interested in getting one, I got mine at topcotoyz.com!

Review: Tantus Uncut #2

IMG_5237
The Uncut #2 is an incredibly realistic uncircumcised dildo. Part of Tantus’ Dual Density O2 line, the Uncut features a Super SoftTM outer layer and a firm inner core for a little give and a lot of get. 

Together with detailed skin texture, pores, veins, and wrinkles, the Uncut looks and feels remarkably real. It’s all about that foreskin!
Anal Safe
Eco-Friendly
 Hypoallergenic
Harness Compatible
Dishwasher Safe/Boilable
100% Ultra-Premium Silicone
 
&
Diameter: 1.6″
Insertable Length: 6.4″
Finish: Matte

Uncut #2 has an average girth overall. It’s not too wide or thick, and I don’t have a hard time trying to grip it. The head is large and tapers down the shaft. There is quite a lot of detail on it too. It has lots of wrinkles, veins and slight creases. The surface has an overall skin like texture. 

Uncut #2 is dual-density, which means it has a harder core with a squishy outer layer. The head is mostly squish but at the same time still firm enough. The shaft on the other hand, is quite a bit firmer with some flexibility.

The base of the Uncut #2 makes it anal safe and harness compatible. It also makes it easy to hold. It’s not too wide or thick, and I don’t have a hard time trying to grip it. The extra couple inches of the shaft also give me something extra to hold on to.

*Because of the highly textured nature of this toy, it is highly recommended to boil it or use the dishwasher to make sure surface is completely cleaned.

 

Uncut #2 comes beautifully packaged in the usual Tantus’ white box with 3 clear openings around it to show the toy. It kind of looks like it is suspended. In the back of the box, there’s information about the company and the products they carry. When you open the top of the box, you pull out a plastic tray that surrounds the toy to hold it in place.
 

Foreskins don’t get much representation in the sex toy world and in my opinion, here is a need for dildos with foreskins and all types. Of course, leave it to Tantus to go and make some to represent them. Even though I haven’t had uncut partners in the past, I really enjoy the unique of this dildo. Yay for diversity!

 

I really like how highly detailed, realistic, and unique Uncut #2 is. And how it feels very real to the touch too. This particular color is Mocha. It’s the darkest color, a standard tan and beautiful dark brown shade.

The length of Uncut #2 is actually quite too long for me. I can’t fit but 
I can definitely reach deeper spots inside me that feel good thanks to the upward curve it has for G-spot stimulation. The textured shaft has also a lot to do about how stimulating it is because I can clearly feel its fine bumps and ridges. So, if you aren’t a fan of texture, make sure to add lubricant to make it extra slippery.

Uncut #2 features an uncut foreskin, which is awesome and rare in this industry. It is stimulating, but is not overwhelming, comfortable and easy to use. It seems can’t stop touching and squeezing it!

 

If uncut dildos are your thing, but you love dual-density, there a more dildos to keep your eye out for.  Head on over to Tantus and check them out.

Review: UltraZone Infinite 6X

 Body Safe
6 functions
Waterproof
Rechargeable
The UltraZone Infinite 6X features 6 functions of vibrations and pulsations which are all available in multiple speeds. You can control both the speed and power of the vibrations within each setting.
 
To turn it on and off, press and hold the center button for a couple seconds. To increase or decrease the speed of vibrations, use the + and – buttons. And, to scroll through the different functions, press center button.
 

The UltraZone Infinite 6X is USB rechargeable and the charging cable connects magnetically to the metal on the handle at the very end of the vibrator. An adapter is not included so if you don’t want to charge it from your computer, you’ll have to get one yourself. The first time, it takes about 2 hours to charge, that gives you about an hour and a half of play depending on the setting used.

&
 
The UltraZone Infinite 6X has an insertable length of 4.3 inches and a girth of 1.3 inches. It’s silky to the touch and is available in four different colors on TopcoToyz. It’s a little bendable and has indentations on the sides, so it isn’t completely smooth.
 
The vibrator is made from phthalate free and nonporous silicone, and does have some plastic pieces on it. The silicone thankfully doesn’t attract or pick dust, hair and lint that come in contact with it.
 
To clean it, use an anti-bacterial soap and water or your favorite sex toy cleaner. You can also sterilize it using a 10% bleach solution.
 
Always make sure it’s thoroughly dry before storage, use either in the box it came or the silky bag included wit it.
 
 
Infinite 6X arrives in a white cardboard box with images of the product all around. It features a magnetic flap on the front  that opens up to reveal the toy nestling inside a white plastic tray along a storage pouch and the charging cordThe back displays some of the key features of the toyinformation on what the package contains and the 2 year warranty.
 

 

When I first turned on the vibe I was impressed immediately with the power. Having never used anything from this line before, I wasn’t sure I would enjoy the vibrations or not. 

was also surprised to find that the shaft was flexible, that way the pressure against my G-spot wouldn’t be too much. The sightly curved shaft effortlessly located my G-spot with a little bit of water based lube and lined up with my anatomy better than I expected.
 
 The first time I used it, I used the larger end on my clit and had a very powerful orgasm. When I inserted it, I noticed the vibrations traveled really well throughout the whole toy. To be honest, I’m not a fan of patterns so I didn’t really use them that much. I tried a couple of them and was able to orgasm just fine even though it took me quite some time. I must add I was on using it on high and it still had power left when I was done using it.

The noise associated with the vibrations is very reasonable. It’s actually a lot more silent than I thought it would be. The control buttons can be hard to reach when you are using the toy penetratively and I swear at them regularly. They are just really hard to pressClitorally however, the UltraZone Infinite 6X is awesome and the buttons are much easier to operate.
The UltraZone Infinite 6X is powerful, body safe, and worked pretty well with my anatomy. I must say it would be much easier to use if it had a loop at the end and the buttons weren’t so hard. But it’s overall a great and versatile vibrator, stimulating enough that it’s worth checking out.
