Viberry Toothbrush Vibrator Review

This is one of the sillier things that’s ever come in contact with my genitals. If you think this toy just looks like an Oral-B toothbrush with a plastic attachment… that would be because it’s an Oral-B toothbrush with a plastic attachment. This is the Viberry. According to their website, the idea came about when the founder, like many people, discovered that her electric toothbrush could double as a clitoral vibrator…

Fun Factory Stronic Eins Review

This review has taken me a ridiculously long time to do for a few different reasons, but mainly because of the dissonance between how my vagina about this toy and how my brain feels. Let’s get this out of the way first: the Fun Factory Stronic Eins is a nearly $200 sex toy. I never know whether to talk about price in my toy reviews. Sometimes I feel like I should only discuss the faults and merits of the product and let consumers determine their own feelings about the cost…

Ableism in Sex Toy Manuals — Can We Not?

It was at this point that I noticed the warning section in the manual, which, among reasonable disclaimers like “Not for medical use” and “Do not use charger near water,” also contained this choice excerpt: “WARNING: This appliance is not intended for use by children or persons with reduced physical, sensory, or mental capabilities” …

L’amourose Prism V Review

When I say that the L’amourose Prism V is my perfect vibrator, I am not using that word lightly. I test sex toys for a living, after all, and I sugarcoat nothing — the things I love still tend to come with a list of caveats, and the things I hate are spared no snarky comment or complaint. I want the sex toy industry to be better, and part of making it better is through critique…

I know that no matter what I say, there are still people who are going to buy their sex toys on Amazon.

So for those people, here is my guide to Amazon sex toy shopping, including a brief explanation of how Amazon fulfillment services work and my tips for making sure what you pay for is actually what you get…

The Best (And Worst) Sex Toys of 2016

As the year draws to a close, I just want to take a little look back over a lot of the sex toys I tried this year. Things I loved. Things I hated. Mostly things I loved, honestly — as shitty as this year was in a lot of regards, it was a pretty good year for sex toys (at least for me)! So let’s dive into many of the wonders and disappointments 2016 brought into my life…

5 Sex Toy Shopping Mistakes

Sex toy shopping can be weird. I’ll be the first to admit that. Our society’s attitudes toward sex and masturbation are weird, and it’s usually not often that we buy things that are going to interact with our bodies so intimately. But because they interact with our bodies so intimately, there are a lot of considerations that need to be made when purchasing your sex toys…

We-Vibe Sync Review

In general, wearable couples vibrators are not something that usually excites me. I appreciate the wearable aspect as an accessibility feature, but even then, the motors in those toys are usually pretty weak and buzzy, and they can be really finicky about actually fitting different people’s bodies and staying in the right place. So when We-Vibe sent me their newest couples toy, the Sync, I was as skeptical as I’ve ever been…
