Pleasurists adult product review round-up

MyPleasure, an online adult toy seller, sent me this neat product to review. I’ve had my eye on it for awhile – something about it’s sleek curves and that gorgeous mature pistachio color is so appealing to me (by the by, the green is so much more vivid in person than it is in the picture). The Energie is marketed as a kegel exerciser, and while it is definitely great for that, I usually use it as a dildo. When I first picked it up out of the package it was shipped in, the weight caught me by surprise. This thing is kind of a barbell for your vagina. As a dildo, the slight curve makes it a gentle but firm g-spot stimulator.

Packaging

I adore packaging that is created to give you a quality storage box with your toy. There is a sleeve tightly covering a sturdy plastic box that the toy sits in. There is a cradle specially designed to hold the ENERGIE securely, and the box closes snugly enough that you could easily take this in your purse without worrying about it opening.

The sleeve that wraps around the main plastic case has a picture of the ENERGIE that is just about life-size with some descriptions of the toy on the back. If you take that off, the packaging is pretty discrete. The plastic box is dark navy, with silver writing that says “Natural Contours” and “ENERGIE”, underneath that in smaller letters (font size 8, I would guess), “kegel exerciser”.

The only problem with the packaging is how tight the sleeve is. I tried for five minutes to pull the box from the sleeve and somehow my boyfriend ended up getting the two separated. If you get desperate, it’d be easy to cut through the cardboard.

There are instructions for use on the inside. If you are interested in using this for it’s original, intended purpose – to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles – these instructions are priceless. Side note: It recommends lube before insertion but the material is so smooth, I didn’t need any.

Materials

Good question! Nowhere on the packaging is there any indication what type of plastic is used, nor what is used to weight the exerciser. Natural Contours site doesn’t have any information about the Energie that wasn’t already on the packaging.

To me, it feels like a hard ABS plastic sealed around some sort of solid metal (?) core. It weighs about a pound, so it couldn’t be plastic all the way through. It does feel safe and sterilizable but I can’t be completely sure.

How to Use

As a Kegel Exerciser
Per the instruction Manual:
“Lie down on your back and bend your knees with both feet flat on the floor. Insert the ENERGIE (you may want to lubricate it for easy insertion) placing it just inside the vaginal opening. Take a deep breath and the totally relax the vaginal muscles as you exhale then squeeze and release the kegel muscle around the inserted ENERGIE. Take another deep breath and exhale relaxing the vagina as you slowly insert the ENERGIE another inch. Again squeeze and release the kegel muscle several times. Continue until full penetration has been achieved.”

They also give some info on how to locate the muscles you’ll be exercising and how to clean the ENERGIE after use (soap and water).

I don’t use this as an exerciser – I tried and could never remember to do it. The instructions suggest doing it every day for two weeks, then every other day, but I just couldn’t keep up with it.

This is a great item for ladies after childbirth who are wanting to retone and tighten their pelvic muscles. It’s also been proven to help cure incontinence. Even if you are just interested in toning your kegel muscles (said to improve orgasms) this is an item worth trying.

As a Dildo
This is by far one of the weightiest toys I’ve ever used. If you have arthritis in your wrists or if heavy toys are hard for you to use, I suggest passing on this one.

Other than that, I don’t have many suggestions for use. Both sides feel great, use lube if you need it, and do what feels good!

My Use

I always use it as a dildo now. I’ve tried to use it as a kegel exerciser, and although it feels effective, I can never remember to do it. If I get serious about setting aside 10 minutes in my day to do this, I’ll probably have to set an alarm on my phone.

As a dildo, I love the weight. The slight curve gently presses against my g-spot and the slender size makes it great for beginners or people like me who enjoy the slimmer side of penetration. I like to use the bigger side, because it’s slightly broader, but both sides make good handles – the bulbous ends fit ergonomically into the palm.

It does get slippery when lubed up, so it can be kinda messy but overall it hasn’t been a problem.

Overall, an effective kegel exerciser and a quality dildo.

MyPleasure sent me this toy to try in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!

First off I want to thank My Pleasure for sending me sex toys to review! Secondly, I have to be honest; this isn’t the toy I thought it was. The fault is completely my own, but for some reason I expected the Royal to be about 6 or 7 inches tall. In reality, this toy is about 4 inches tall and less than an inch and a half across its widest point. That’s not a bad thing at all; I was just surprised to see how small it was. To put it in perspective, this is a little larger than the size of an average forefinger.

After I saw it, with its petite size with the sharp curve, I thought it was meant strictly for men (for prostate massage) so I put off trying to use it. Which was a mistake. I don’t think that any toy is strictly for men or women because that’s purely subjective. Anyways, after I tried it, I was a little surprised. There’s two different ways to use this toy, anally and vaginally. Remember; don’t go from anal play to vaginal without sanitation (hot water and soap or a 10% bleach solution).

Packaging

The Royal comes in a clear plastic bag with a cardboard label stapled at the top. It’s shipped from My Pleasure in a plain cardboard box so everything is completely discrete.

There isn’t much relevant info on the cardboard, nor was there any info on the bag. It isn’t good for storage; there isn’t anything remarkable about it.

Materials

This toy is made from 100% silicone with a shiny, slightly matte finish. It doesn’t require much lube to make it slick enough for anal, but make sure you use a water-based variety. It also comes with a small bullet that can fit in the bottom of the toy.

The bullet is silver painted plastic with a small o-ring, which makes me believe that it is somewhat waterproof, or at least water resistant. The biggest problem with the bullet is that it requires 3 watch batteries, however, they are included with the toy.

How to Use

It’s easy to slip the bullet into base of the Royal, no lube required. It’s push button, so push it all the way into the base or it won’t stay on. It isn’t very strong but vibrations do reach the end of the shaft.

Vaginal or anal is up to you; it’s good for both. I’m very much an anal beginner and I found it enjoyable. Again, it is about the size of a finger so I imagine that anyone would be able to enjoy it.

I would consider this travel size because it’s only a few inches long, but the bullet is very easy to turn on. The bullet doesn’t completely fit inside (about half an inch), making for easy removal. However because that much sticks out of the base, it won’t stand flat on its base. This means that it is very easy to knock it over.

The silicone is very flexible, but not very squishy. I can bend it in half or in a twist without much resistance but there is a firm quality to it.

My Use

I tried it vaginally at first, and it strokes the g-spot wonderfully. The funny shape at the middle that has a sharp angle proved the biggest problem for both vaginal and anal play. The rest of the toy is smooth, and then all of a sudden, I’ll hit that bump. It doesn’t take much extra pressure to push past, but it does mess up the groove, if you will.

I honestly prefer using it as a gentle intro to anal play. The only problem with that is again, that funny angular shape in the middle. This isn’t a plug, this is a dildo/vibrator. It’s for thrusting. That little angular bulge in the shaft makes for an unpleasant bump. I generally just push it in and hold it with my hand so it won’t pop out but still gives me something to squeeze against.

The bullet isn’t strong enough to get me off, whether it’s inside the toy or not. It has very gentle, high-pitched vibes. The Royal couldn’t get me off by itself, but it is wonderful in use with another toy.

Thanks again, MyPleasure!

Amazingly realistic, and the perfect size/shape combo for me. The O2 material has a hard, thick inner core with a softer outside layer. If you warm this up, I doubt anyone would be able to tell it wasn’t a real penis. Great for strap on play, it’s hard enough that it doesn’t flop around. It has some detailing (veins, clearly defined head) but it doesn’t visually scare me like more realistic dildos do.

Read my full review HERE


Before I got Raquel, I had a stinky, jelly purple dildo from Doc Johnson. While researching about why it stank and how to get rid of the stench, I found many of the sex toy reviewers that I follow now. So in a sense, this awful dildo caused me to become a reviewer conscious of things like body safe materials and safe sex practices.

The Raquel is made of a miracle material called VixSkin. When I pulled this toy out of the package, I couldn’t stop squeezing it. It has this awesome, somewhat indescribable feel. The outside has a feel similar to skin, except stickier/tackier.
