We-Vibe Dreamy Desire Collection (We-Vibe Touch & We-Vibe 4 Plus) Review

It’s a We-Vibe party! In this video I am reviewing the two toys that come in their Dreamy Desire Collection, and if you hop over to my blog I’ve also just posted a review there for the new We-Vibe Wish clitoral vibrator. So if you want to know about any of those toys, never fear, I’ve got you covered! The We-Vibe Dreamy Desire Collection comes with two vibrators: the We-Vibe Touch, a small clit vibe, and the We-Vibe 4+, the brand’s namesake wearable vibrator…

We-Vibe Wish Review

I’m just gonna go ahead and say it — I’m kind of over app-compatible vibrators. They’re a fun novelty and often have useful features like long-distance controls and custom pattern programming, but once we get to the point of having to rely on an app for basic vibrator functionality they become more of a burden to me than a benefit. This is the case with the We-Vibe Wish…

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…
