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!

The Bimini Flash by Fun Factory is part of their newest “Click ‘N’ Charge” line, an awesome idea that falls a little short in execution. It’s made of high quality materials, is waterproof and environmentally friendly. I was delighted to try this one for Fascinations, but I wish a few things about the toy were done differently.

Packaging

The Flash came packaged discreetly from Fascinations, as always. The box from Fun Factory has a modern feel; there are no scantily clad women. It’s a design that’s thought out and has some useful information, in four different languages (German, English, French and Spanish).

On one of the sides there are graphics implying some information: Waterproof, Silicone, Vibration patterns, No Smell or Noise, Magnetic Charge. There’s a window in the front allowing you to peek at the Flash, and there’s side information flaps held closed with magnets. One flap talks about the new line of rechargeable, eco-friendly vibrators in the Click n’ Charge line, the other labels all the parts in the toy.

Oddly, the charger is packaged in a separate box that’s similar in appearances. The charger is interchangeable with all other toys in the Click n’ Charge line.

Materials

This toy is made from very soft, squishy silicone and hard plastic (for the handle). The silicone is unlike any I’ve felt before. I’d compare it to a marshmallow because there’s a little bit of a rough/matte texture, but it is still incredibly soft. This texture meant I needed more lube than normal, despite its somewhat petite length.

The plastic is smooth, hard plastic that gets a little slippery if you get any lube on it. The very bottom says “fun” in metal letters – this is where you align the charger.

I thought the Flash would have two motors, i.e. one in the clitoral nub and one in the body. Unfortunately there’s only one, and it’s in the body.

How to Use

The Click n’ Charge system is an excellent idea in theory but I found the charger a little difficult to manipulate. To use, plug the charger into an outlet (of course) and then line up the “fun” metal plates; you should hear a slight ‘click’ when the connection is made and you’ll see red light. If the words aren’t lined up perfectly or if they’re facing different directions there won’t be a solid connection and it wont charge. The biggest problem I had was the charger not staying connected to the toy.

The controls are easy to use. The buttons are located under the silicone, within reach but it still takes a conscious effort to press them down. Hold the ‘plus’ sign down for a couple seconds to turn it on. After this you can either hold the plus down to increase the speed quickly or manually press it down each time you want to increase vibration by a level. There are 8 levels of vibration. After you reach the highest level of vibration, hold the ‘plus’ down again to enter the patterns. I think there’s three patterns; two escalation patterns (one slow and one fast) and then a fast pulsing pattern. I almost never use the patterns because I think it’s too much work to get to them.

This vibrator is very travel-sized, considering it’s only about 5 inches in length. That’s about the size of my Pocket Rocket. Except this one is considerably wider in circumference and it is meant to be inserted.

My Use

Fortunately for me the Flash came pre-charged because it is difficult for me to get the pieces connected and lined up for extended periods of time. I usually charge my toys while they’re inside a drawer or under covers because I don’t like them sitting out all the time. You need to leave this toy alone while it’s charging because it is so easy to mess up the charger.

The clit attachment lines up perfectly but it doesn’t provide enough stimulation to reach orgasm. It’s simply a hunk of silicone that’s supposed to transfer vibrations – unfortunately, I feel absolutely no stimulation from it. If I could grind against it I might be able to finish, but because the silicone is so squishy and flexible, I can’t even do that.

In order for me to get even close to orgasm I have to put the vibration point (about halfway down the shaft) directly against my clit. Perhaps it’s because the vibrations are a bit buzzier than I need or want. In hand, they can feel really strong but my body just doesn’t enjoy them.

Noise level ranges. On the lower level vibrations, you couldn’t hear it through a door. On the higher level, that I need, this toy gets very loud. Keep the TV on while using this toy, otherwise I’m afraid there will be a very audible buzz that anyone could hear on the other side of the door.

In conclusion if you’re the type that likes mostly vaginal stimulation through vibrators; or you appreciate a travel-size, eco-friendly toy, this might be a great option. Unfortunately, it’s just too loud and buzzy for me to enjoy.

Thanks Fascinations for sending me this toy to review!

The pocket rocket was the first vibrator I had ever heard about. It’s somewhat infamous for it’s small size and portability, so I was rather delighted to get the opportunity to review it.

Packaging

Fascinations sent this to me in their discreet brown box, packed in pink paper.

The Pocket Rocket itself comes in a somewhat comical package, portraying the vibrator as a rocket and proclaiming it’s “simply the best mini massager in the world!” I didn’t find this to be completely true, but I’ll discuss that in a minute.

It doesn’t come with much information; in fact the only useful info says that it uses one AA battery, recommends against use in the shower and is phthalate free.

I don’t use the box for storage; it’s just too hard to put in and take out and because the pocket rocket comes with a little cap for the top I don’t feel like it will get dirty in my drawer.

Materials

The box states that it is made from ABS plastic, but I think that’s only the casing. There are 3 metal balls that are good for transferring vibration but I’m unsure what type of metal they are. Brass, perhaps?

It’s about 3 or 4 inches long, and readily fits in most of my pockets so it does hold true to its name.

How to Use

There are only three functions- Open, Off, On- in that order. You can twist the bottom so that an arrow points to the function you want.
Twist the bottom to the left to open it for batteries.
Twist the bottom to the right to turn it on.

Unfortunately it has only one speed. This speed will be sufficient for some, and was just barely enough for me.

The cap it comes with has little spikes on the top so I assume they made it for use. However, it doesn’t carry vibrations at all. I find it completely useless except for storage.

The three brass beads on top don’t move at all, they just transfer vibrations.

My Use

The Pocket Rocket isn’t very strong. I use it as a teaser vibe, because it’s small and convenient and fairly quiet.

It does make a buzzy noise that you can hear while it’s under covers but not through a closed door. If you hold it tightly in your hand you can make it a little quieter which makes me think there are some parts rattling around inside.

The best thing about this toy are the three metal balls at the top. I can press these into my clit (not too hard, that can be painful) and can sometimes bring on an orgasm. If I have already had an orgasm, it becomes easier; but this toy definitely does not guarantee an orgasm for me. If I use with another source of stimulation (dildo, streamline vibrator, boyfriend, fingers) I can reach orgasm. Thankfully, it’s shape is decently ergonomic to use during sex or while thrusting another toy.

I do love putting this on my nipples though. Something about its shape or size mixed with the right intensity of vibration makes this perfect for nipple stimulation, for me.

What I don’t appreciate is how difficult it is to clean this one. I don’t know how much I can put under water without risking the rest of the toy. Therefore, I only clean the vibrating beads with a damp cloth. If I want to be really thorough I put a little bleach on the cloth with the water but I still don’t feel like I cant get this toy completely clean; there’s just too many grooves that can house bacteria.

In the end, this toy is good for those with very sensitive clits or those who enjoy a little nipple stimulation. It won’t be strong enough for most but it’s portable and fairly quiet.

Thanks to Fascinations for providing me this toy to review!

Disappointing as a g-spot vibrator but fantastic for clitoral or pinpoint stimulation. Very powerful but a little too noisy for daily use. High quality material matched with a 5 year warranty makes this one awesome toy! I just wish all the whites on this toy matched!

Read the whole review Here

This vibrator is not particularly eye catching, and for this reason it is over-looked easily. I admit I was unimpressed when I first pulled this out of the package. I decided I wouldn’t like it before I even tried it. Luckily, I was incredibly wrong. If you’re looking for an understated, powerful, quality, affordable vibrator, this is a great place to start.

I won this in a giveaway from http://dailysextoys.com/. Right now they’re in the process of changing servers but I’ve been assured they’ll be up and running shortly.

Packaging

It was shipped to me in a plain brown; everything was very discreet. I don’t remember the exact name they shipped from but it didn’t sound like a sex toy company, distributor or store. I’m sure if you contacted them, they’d be happy to tell you what to expect.

Bliss No.5 came in a simple, small package. There is relatively no information on the box about its features. It states on the back, in 6 languages that it’s a
-‘Powerful vibrator made of 100% Japanese platinum Silicone’:
-‘Ergonomically designed for maximum pleasure’
-‘Single Switch Mode Functionality’
-‘5 Different Vibration Modes’
-‘Whisper Technology’
-‘Splash Proof’

And it has graphics depicting the vibration modes, but that is all they say. There are no instructions or warranties, as far as I know.

The toy itself was sitting inside a plastic blister pack. No bag for storage. I keep this in the box all the time because it picks up lint and I hate having to wash toys before every use.

Materials

The shaft is 100% soft, smooth silicone and the base feels like a hard plastic. I imagine this black base would get very slick with lube, although I’ve never used lube with this one because I love it for clit stimulation. I REALLY love this for clit stimulation. But we’ll cover that later on. The button for changing vibration mode is on the bottom, made from silicone that matches the shaft.

The silicone is not the matte-ist I’ve ever felt but it does have a little drag that’s easily remedied with a spot of water-based lube.

How to Use

The toy itself is fairly ergonomic. It has a streamline shaft, with a button on the bottom placed for easy rotation through the modes. I hit this button on accident quite a few times, however, after I learned how to avoid this it wasn’t so bad. But, it still required conscious thoughts against hitting it.

The modes include 3 steady vibration modes, a ‘climax’ mode and a ‘pulsing’ mode. The climax mode is essentially steady vibes interspersed with an increased intensity every few seconds. The pulsing mode is pretty self explanatory; vibration then no vibration, repeating.

To turn it on, you hold the button for a few seconds. To switch modes, you press the button once. To get a power boost, you hold the button for about two seconds, but if you hold it longer, the toy will shut off. This can be very frustrating, because if you’re on the verge of an orgasm, you shouldn’t need to risk turning off your vibrator. I did this a couple times and it is beyond aggravating. I don’t even try to use the power boost option anymore.

Remember this is a silicone toy so no silicone lubes!

It requires two AA batteries, not included. I personally am amazed how intense the vibrations are in this toy, given that they only takes two AA. This is easily one of the most powerful vibrators I own, although it is a little on the loud side.

Watch out for your cervix with this one. I hit mine a couple times and the material is definitely hard enough to bruise. There isn’t much flexibility in this toy at all. About two-thirds up the shaft there is a place where you can bend it, but only very slightly. The tip and the rest of the shaft feels like a 1/8 inch of silicone on top of a hard plastic shell.

It claims it’s splash-proof but I think it’d be waterproof if it weren’t for that button. The black bottom that houses the batteries is protected by an o-ring and clicks satisfyingly into place. I imagine you would be okay in the shower using this, but I still don’t recommend it. Also, try to avoid getting water on that base while you’re cleaning it.

My Use

I picked this toy up on the way to spend the weekend with my boyfriend at his house. Luckily, his two roommates were gone and I could be as loud as I wanted, a luxury because at least one is always home and the walls are pretty thin.

It is pretty loud. In fact, it is the loudest toy I own. But it’s also the most powerful.

I wouldn’t feel comfortable using this in my dorm without the tv turned up really loud. It is definitely loud enough to hear through covers and possibly through the door, depending on how thick it is.

The button on the bottom, I kinda hate. It is very easy to push accidentally. If you hold it too long and the toy shuts off, bad things happen. I almost threw it against the wall during my first time using it because it shut off on me at least three times when I was just about to orgasm. This is similar to partners changing positions or technique on you when you’re just about to climax. Frustrating.

Something about the shape of this toy makes me want to press it into my vulva with the vibrations against my clit. I’ve had some of the most intense orgasms I’ve ever had, doing exactly this. I can rub against it fairly well, but the vibrations do decrease a little bit if I press too hard against it.

I also sometimes put only the point on my clit; this means amazing pin-point stimulation.

I seriously cannot tell you enough how amazing the vibes are on this toy; they’re deep and rumbly. Which totally makes up for the loud buzz that comes with it.

It’s thicker than average, so when I do insert it, I have make sure I’m ready for it. This toy is also girthy enough that it hits my g-spot, even though I doubt it was designed to do this, given the lack of a curve.

Thanks so much to Daily Sex Toys for sending me this fabulous toy. I very much appreciate it.
