G-Swirl

Good Vibrations was kind enough to let me review the G-Swirl by Good Vibrations. I was extremely excited about this toy. Fun Factory created a vibrator for Good Vibrations that can be used for G-spot, P-spot or clitoral stimulation. The flared base on the bottom of the shaft makes it safe to use anally. The G-Swirl has a plastic base and silicone shaft. It looked amazing.

I got out my instructions and batteries to insert them into the device and realized I had a problem. I tried everything to get into the toy. I pushed, I pulled, I twisted, I freaking karate chopped this bad boy and nothing would open it. The instructions just said insert them into the device, easier said than done. I spent a couple weeks working on it and still had no luck. I would spend time trying to figure it out and then curse the day it was created and walk away. I contemplated throwing it out the window. I was about to just give up and ask a guy friend to figure out where the batteries went in my new vibrator. Finally, I found a blog where Nancy Drew or some other sleuth figured out the mysterious battery compartment. There is a place for your fingers on the sides of the base, you have to squeeze this very hard in until it clicks, and then the bottom pops off. Then you can insert 2 AA batteries. Even after I discovered this secret, I have still had a difficult time opening it. You should remove your batteries in between uses, which means you have to regularly tackle the beast.

I finally got batteries into the G-Swirl and it would have been a pretty great toy, if it hadn’t been so complicated to insert the batteries. It has multiple speeds, with the lowest being a great starting level to someone new to vibrators and the highest is a decently high vibration. It is controlled by a round dial wheel, it’s placement on the vibrator makes it very easy to control. After you get to the highest level there is a small click, but I get too excited sometimes and go too far, accidently turning it off. The vibrator has an insertable length of 4 inches and a diameter of 1 ½ inches. The ridged silicone shaft has a curved end that provided plenty of G-spot and P-spot stimulation. The clitoral ridge, doesn’t work with my anatomy, but I’m sure it’d be great for other women.

The G-Swirl is splash resistant. It is safe to wash it with soap and water or with toy cleaner, but do not submerge it under water. Since it is a silicone vibrator, avoid silicone lubricants. I recommend using water based lube. The vibrator comes with a sample lube from Fun Factory.

I don’t recommend this toy to first time toy buyers. It’s extremely frustrating to get into and if you don’t know how great sex toys are, I fear you would just give up on them forever. I wouldn’t blame you either. I’m not even sure how much I can recommend it all. It’s a great toy, but the design of the toy is severely flawed. If the battery compartment was altered or there were instructions that carefully explained how to install the batteries, I wouldn’t be so hesitant to recommend it. However, if you are reading this you now know how to open it, but my experience was more frustrating than pleasurable.

Disclosure Statement: This toy was provided free of charge by Good Vibrations in exchange for an honest review.

My Vagina Doesn't Have Beiber Fever- Review of the OhMiBod Freestyle

Have you ever seen something and just felt an immediate connection that was unexplainable? From the moment you see it the world just kind of stops. Everything just freezes and all you know is that you have to have it. Seeing isn’t enough. Being near it isn’t enough. You actually have to have it. That’s what happened with me when I got my OhMiBod Freestyle. It’s crazy I know, but it was love at first sight.

I wasn’t sure about this product. It wirelessly hooks up to your computer, iPod or in my case (super-freaking-awesome-so-much-better-than-your-lame-blackberry) iPhone and vibrates to the music. You can listen, while the music stimulates you. Music is my life, but I was hesitant because I am not a big fan of vibrator patterns. None the less, this product seemed incredible. So when OhMiBod offered me the chance to review one, I jumped at the opportunity.

When it came in the mail, I couldn’t wait to get it open. It comes in a beautiful white box with an actual size image of the Freestyle. I didn’t have time to use it; I had to be somewhere. I tried to walk away, but I couldn’t resist it calling to me. I had to see what it did. I turned it on in my palm and was extremely impressed. I put it back in the box and walked away. Then I ran back and had to try it. It is amazing!!!!!!

When I finally got time to really use it I was blown away by how in sync it is with the music. I tried a variety of genres and artist. Justin Bieber doesn’t get me off, probably because he is 16 and doesn’t yet know what kind of music my vagina likes. My sappy Emo music made love to me. Certain country songs are great, while others are far less mind blowing. Drake disappointed me; I thought his music would be the best but it wasn’t. Honestly I think my favorite song is “Hey, Soul Sister” by Train. Honestly part of the fun, comes from trying different music out on yourself. On OhMiBod’s website you can find playlist and DJ’s that are working with the company to make the experience even more amazing.

The vibrations can be adjusted to pick up more variation in the music, therefore creating more vibration. Basically you can turn up the strength. You also can turn the music off and just have multiple levels of steady vibrations or use one of its different patterns. The Freestyle is shaped like a traditional vibrator and can be used for clit, vaginal or anal stimulation. The smooth hypoallergenic plastic vibrator is 8 ¼ long (5 3/4 insertable length) and has a diameter of 1 1/8 inches. Unlike previous models by OhMiBod, the Freestyle vibrator is wireless. Your music source hooks up to the remote and your ear phones, but there are no cords attached to the vibrator itself. While the vibrator itself is rechargeable, the remote takes 2 AAA batteries.

When people ask me about sex toys, this is the one I always bring up first. It doesn’t matter how vanilla you are, you can still appreciate this awesome concept. This vibrator has provided me many opportunities to explain how different sex toys can be from what pop culture usually thinks of when they think of a vibrator. I really wish the girls on Sex and the City had mentioned this one in their latest movie. We have come so far since the rabbit.

The Freestyle can be purchased for $130 on OhMiBod’s website. The Freestyle is something I can recommend to anyone and everyone with no hesitation. I feel like this is a great first time toy, because it combines music, something that is very unintimidating and vibrators, which can be intimidating if you are a first time user. It has varying levels of stimulating, so if you are little timid, you can start slowly and for those of us that aren’t scared of a lot of buzz you can have yourself a hell of a time. I really want to thank OhMiBod for letting me review such an amazing toy.

Where I've been

I’ve always had an extremely healthy sexual appetite. I’ve always been comfortable in my sexuality and constantly encourage other people to embrace their own. I never thought I’d get to a point where sexual pleasure would just be something I could do without. Unfortunately that’s exactly what happened.

I had surgery on my uterus, ovaries and cervix earlier this year. I get a monthly Lupron injection now that causes menopausal like symptoms. I laughed when my Dr told me it could lower my sex drive. I told him there was no medicine on Earth that could even touch mine… I was wrong.

The last few months have been awful. I never have any energy, my vagina has turned into the Sahara, I have terrible hot flashes, I’m a total bitch to everyone around me and my sex drive is dead, RIP. Watching these changes happen, over the last few months, has been really hard. As I lost my sex drive, I became more and more embarrassed. I don’t know why, but my hormones were definitely not helping. I didn’t want to talk about it with anyone. I didn’t want to admit that this was happening to me. I know it seems crazy, but I felt crazy. I’m a 23 year old girl who has always been extremely sexual and now has very little interest in sex.

I have to use more and more lube because of this medicine. Wet has been a very important part of my infrequent masturbation sessions. God bless all the people who work for Wet.

I kept mentioning it to the Dr’s office. Who just kept saying this is what is supposed to happen. I was starting to get very depressed. 2 weeks ago, I called and yelled at a nurse and then started sobbing. I felt helpless. Finally someone listened; she called me in a prescription for Add Back Therapy on top of my injections. I’m still not myself, but it’s better than before. It’s wonderful to reclaim some of my sexual energy.

I’m sorry that I disappeared; I was a mess. I have missed this place and my sex reviewing friends. I’ve started masturbating more frequently. It’s nothing like before, but I have already enjoyed myself more in the last few weeks than in the months prior to this. I knew the easiest way to explain my absence would be with the truth. I am glad to be home.

Shunga Secret Garden

This will be the first in a series of reviews of Shunga products. The company has been absolutely wonderful and sent me tons of products. Everything is amazing!!!! So for the next few months, expect a Shunga review weekly. Get excited!

Alright, now on to the product! I have an addiction to arousal lubes. I rarely masturbate without using one and when I do I feel like something is significantly lacking. I’ve tried quite a few of them and Shunga’s Secret Garden is by far the best I have ever used. I was madly in love with Tickle Her Pink by Pow Products before this and Secret Garden left Tickle Her Pink in the dust.

Secret Garden Female Orgasm Enhancing Cream is a clitoral stimulating gel. The ingredients cause an increase in blood flow to the area, making the area much more sensitive. This allows for a heightened sense of arousal and more powerful orgasm. Use this with a partner or during solo sessions.

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Propylene glycol, L-Arginine, L-Ornithine, H.E.C., Turnera aphrodisiaca extract, Methyl paraben, Propyl paraben, Mentha piperita, Tocopherol. This product should not be used if you have an STD.

To use, massage a pea size amount of the gel under the clitoral hood. I felt a cooling sensation almost immediately. Shunga suggest that some women will have to use the product for a few days for the product to work at its desired level. I never had that problem, but every woman is different. I know clitoral stimulating gels work well for me, if they usually don’t work well for you try the product for 3 or 4 days.

It is a little expensive, but this 1 ounce bottle of gel will provide continuous pleasure over and over and over again. I ounce doesn’t sound like much, but when you’re only using a pea size amount each session it will last for quite a while.

I highly recommend this product. I know that when I run out I’ll be purchasing more of this amazing Shunga's Secret Garden.

Thank you Shunga for letting me review Secret Garden! To buy this product, visit Shunga’s website.

  • Jimmyjane Form 2 by Luvasaurus

  • The Form 2 oscillating pattern blows my mind, completely out of my skull. Each ear has its own motor, the vibrations go from one ear to the other, stimulating my clit in a whole new way. “Sensation in Stereo” describes this toy perfectly. The dual motors stimulate my clit like it has never been stimulated before.

JimmyJane Form 2 Review

When I decided to review JimmyJane’s Form 2 with the help of a wonderful JimmyJane employee, I could not wait to get my hands on this product. The Form 2 is the first of the three new Pleasure to the People waterproof and recharable vibrators from JimmyJane. They are all made out of platinum silicone and stainless steel. The Form 2 fits perfectly in my palm and with 3 buttons, the plus and minus buttons change the intensity and the other button changes the pattern, it’s basically perfect.

There is nothing worse than buying a product, only to realize something is wrong with it. Yet I am a firm believer that it is in these moments where you can really see how strong a company is. When it got to my house, the box said it was a Pink US Form 2, but the European charger greatly disagreed with the box. I sent an email to JimmyJane’s customer service. While this is not exactly the most ideal situation, it told me a lot about JimmyJane. They are a great company that will go out of their way to fix their mistakes. A few days, many apologies and a free Little Ember Sampler later I had a new charger and free candles.

At this point I was a little concerned; I have a tendency to build things up in my head, to an extent that they can never meet my expectations. I had lovingly been looking at the Form 2 since it had arrived. The pink silicone millennium falcon looking toy had been taunting me. It does not come charged, so it was just there, beautiful and awkward and looking kind of like Timmy the Tooth’s cousin.

I read the instructions and hooked up the charger. You just place the Form 2 on the charging station and it lights up showing you that it is indeed charging. After 2 hours of charging, it was ready to go. This charger will be used with future JimmyJane models. You can never overcharge this toy. Since there is no plug or o-ring, this little guy is completely water proof. I don’t think you could kill it with water even if you wanted to… which you won’t because it’s incredible.

I have never cared for vibration patterns. It’s not like a hate them, they just aren’t a selling point for me. The Form 2 oscillating pattern blows my mind, completely out of my skull. Each ear has its own motor, the vibrations go from one ear to the other, stimulating my clit in a whole new way. “Sensation in Stereo” describes this toy perfectly. The dual motors stimulate my clit like it has never been stimulated before. The rest of the patterns are also very nice, but I love the oscillating pattern even more than the constant vibrations. There are 4 vibrations patterns and 5 power levels. I like strong vibrations and the Form 2 delivers.

This vibrator is unlike anything I have ever used before. It leaves me speechless. Seriously words will never be able to describe the level of awesomeness contained in this strange looking toy. It’s perfect. The silicone feels great against my naughty parts and the ears surrounding my clit allow my clit to reach a level of ecstasy I’ve never experienced before. I have always had a hard time orgasming. I have sexual ADD and the Form 2 keeps my concentration focused on the sensations I’m feeling and not a crack on the ceiling or what I’m going to eat for dinner. It gives me long intense orgasms, which is probably why I love this toy so much.

Another benefit of this toy is how much it relaxes me. I’m a bit high strung and I have a hard time falling asleep at night as my mind is always racing. I’m not kidding about my ridiculous ADD. This little guy helps me unwind at night. I don’t know if it is the dual motors surrounding my clit or the rocking back and forth that does it, but it works better than anything I’ve ever used before. The orgasms that this toy produces leave me so completely satisfied, that I don’t have the energy to even move, let alone toss and turn.

I have cancelled plans twice since I got it, so that I could get home and use my Form 2. This $135 toy is worth every penny. I know it seems a little pricey, but it is really that amazing.I can’t get enough of it. This is by far my favorite toy of all time… OF ALL TIME!!!

This video started my love affair with the Form 2. I hope it does the same for you!


Thank you JimmyJane for letting me review this incredible toy. Please take a moment to check out their incredible assortment of vibrators, massage candles and massage stones.

The only bug I'll ever love

I was standing in my local sex store the first time Flexi Felix caught my eye. This adorable Fun Factory set of anal beads designed with the face of a ladybug was begging me to take it home. I lusted over this little guy for a while before I actually decided I really needed it. It’s been an incredible addition to my toy collection ever since.



This toy is a brilliant design! Major kudos to whoever thought of this. It’s just so damn cute, how can you not want to put it in your butt? The handle is created as the face of a ladybug with the body of the toy being the beads. I actually thought it was a worm at first, but it Fun Factory says it’s a ladybug. I know some people are freaked out by faces on toys, but I think when it comes to anal toys the less intimidating the better. Anal toys are in a league of their own. Vibrators are becoming more and more accepted by society, anal beads are still a bit misunderstood. I think Flexi Felix could alter that. He looks as safe and comfortable as he really is. Having a toy that is safe, looks fun and gentle was a huge motivator when I purchased Flexi Felix.



This 100% silicone toy is 12 inches long with an insertable length of 10 inches. The handle is large enough that there should be no concern about the toy accidentally sliding into your rectum. The 5 oval beads escalate in size, allowing each individual user to choose how much they are comfortable inserting. The largest bead is 1 inch in diameter. You can insert 1 or 2, or you can insert all of them. The choice is really up to the user. The oval beads make penetration so much easier than the round anal beads I’ve used in the past. The pleasure comes from slowly inserting each bead as well as removing the beads. The preferred moment to remove the beads is directly before orgasm.



Apply a water based lubricant to the toy before insertion. Since the toy is silicone, silicone lubricant should not be used on Felix. Fun Factory actually includes a great water based lube sample with the toy. Their toy lube can be purchased separately. Inserting this toy is extremely easy. The key with any anal toy is just to relax your body. Hold the space above the bead you’re inserting and gently slide it into your ass. I like to pause for a minute to enjoy the sensation and let my body adjust around the bead before I attempt to insert the next one. Your hands will get lube on them and the beads tend to get a little slippery when you’re trying to insert them, but this was never a big problem for me. For additional pleasure try placing a bullet in the eye socket of the ladybug, this will create a vibrating sensation throughout the toy.

This toy comes in 3 colors. I prefer the pink or blue, but if you are concerned about mess you may be more comfortable purchasing it in black. To wash the beads just use antibacterial soap and hot water. It is extremely easy to clean.

I love this little guy! My previous experiences with anal beads had been mediocre at best. This completely rectified my opinion of anal beads. Flexi Felix has quickly won a special place in my heart and ass.

To purchase this wonderful toy, I suggest using a sex store I trust, EdenFantasys.

I did it on porpoise

I am a big fan of using multiple toys per session. I usually have 3 or 4 ready and sometimes I decide I don’t want to use a particular toy and swap it out for another one. There are toys I use to get started and others I use to finish. There are toys for long sessions and ones for quickies. Each toy has its own unique purpose. California Exotic’s The Tickling Dolphin from The Adult Toy Shoppe is a discrete bullet style dolphin intended for clitoral stimulation.

This is not a main course toy. It works decently as an appetizer, but it is best used as a side dish. This is the mash potatoes of sex toys. Unfortunately the mash potatoes lack gravy and salt. It is nice, don’t get me wrong but it is not great.
My little dolphin friend is 3 inches long, with a 1 inch diameter. He nestles himself quite nicely against my clit and vulva. I think the size will work well for most women. His tiny size makes it very easy to bring him just about anywhere with you.




This is a great toy for first time sex toy owners. It is not intimidating at all; he’s a cute little TPR silicone dolphin. He is not as powerful as I desired, but he does have a nice quiet buzz. This toy works best in unison with another toy. I enjoyed it greatly when used with my Mona, by Lelo.




Use a water based lubricant, to prevent damaging the TPR. After using him, wash him with antibacterial soap and warm water. Don’t worry about getting water in the motor. This toy is waterproof and will be perfectly fine while washing him or using him in water.



The Tickling Dolphin uses 4 watch batteries. The product comes with 8. You have no idea how excited this made me. I hate hunting down watch batteries. I curse toys that require them. I think it’s brilliant that they included replacement batteries.

The big question I would ask before buying this product is, “what are you looking for.” Are you looking for something discrete, quiet, waterproof, cute and not overly powerful? If so this toy is a great option. However if you’re more interested in something that is powerful, that will bring you to orgasm every time. You should look at getting a different bullet style vibrator.

I really appreciate the The Adult Toy Shoppe for sending me The Tickling Dolphin to review.

Everything a rabbit vibrator should be

Last week I reviewed the Calla Lily by Cal Exotics; it was the epitome of what a rabbit vibrator should not be. I’m very excited that I get to follow that with that with the Aqua Rabbit by Good Vibrations, a perfect example of everything a rabbit vibrator should be. This is a wonderful toy that does so much more than I ever expected it to.




The most incredible thing about this toy is that it is bendable! Everyone is built completely different and what works for some people does not work for others. A lot of rabbit vibrators don’t work for me, but this one I could easily bend to make it just right. Oh and boy did it feel right! Once inserted, the vibrator maintains its position. It is also easy to alter it while it is inside you, making it fit perfectly for everyone’s body. With an insertable length of 5 ½ inches and 1 ½ inches in diameter, this toy is filling and quite enjoyable.

With dual motors, the vibrator’s clitoral and internal stimulation makes this toy ideal for a quick session or a long one. There is a dial on the bottom of the shaft that allows you to change the speed of the vibrations. I start in the middle and work my way up until I can’t handle it anymore. This toy contains a lot of power. The strong vibrations make it very easy to fall in love with this toy. In the past, I have had some vibrators cause numbing after a long session. I have never had any problem with this toy causing any discomfort.

The Aqua Rabbit is waterproof. The o-ring in the battery compartment will prevent any water damage. So you’re free to play in the bath, shower, hot tub, etc. Since it is waterproof, there is no hassle when washing the product. Just use soap and warm water. Remember this toy is a Phthalate free jelly material and therefore cannot be boiled.

The batteries are kind of a down fall. It requires 3 AAA batteries and it drains them very fast. (I hate when toys require an odd number of batteries!) I recommend getting some rechargeable batteries if you’re going to buy this product. Honestly, this shouldn’t be a deal breaker. The toy is worth buying rechargeable batteries for.

There is nothing discrete about the Aqua Rabbit. Anyone who finds your Aqua Rabbit will know exactly what it is for. It is also pretty loud. The vibrations are steady but the motor sounds like it is going around a track and kind of stalling at the same point every time. I find it distracting and annoying. If I use it under the covers, the weird noise is less noticeable.

Water based lubricants should be used with the Aqua Rabbit. I also enjoy using a clitoral arousal gel, like Tickle Her Pink.

I really enjoyed the Aqua Rabbit. It fits my body perfectly. This lavender colored rabbit is quickly making its way into my regular use toy box. Powerful, bendable, water proof and contains dual motors, this would be a great first toy or an addition to a toy collection.

Thank you Good Vibrations for sending me the Aqua Rabbit!
