Kandles by Kitten Vamp Wax Play Gift Set

When I do a review, I often start with a bit of the old, ‘did I love it or did I hate it, read on to find out’ lark. But not today. Nope, today I’m going straight in with the love. Because this Kandles by Kitten Vamp Wax Play Gift Set is awesome, and I’m not even gonna bother pretending it might not be.

When I got back from lunch this afternoon, I started taking a few final photos for this very review. What was supposed to have been a few drips for pics turned into an impromptu hot wax session that ended in a crumbly quickie with the Fella on the bathroom floor. I love how these candles feel, so I should have known that things weren’t ever gonna end any other way. Continue reading “Kandles by Kitten Vamp Wax Play Gift Set”

Red Minx Vibrator by Shiri Zinn

I’ve been such a lucky duck, recently. Some gorgeous sex toys have passed through the doors of the Scandarella household, one of the most recent being the i-Scream ice cream cone vibrator. I love everything about that darling little thing, and now I’m getting to talk about another product from the mind of the same person who designed it. Let me introduce you to the Red Minx Vibrator by Shiri Zinn.

From the moment I ripped the tape off the outer box and saw what was lying in wait among the packing paper, I was smitten. The packaging for this thing is next level stuff. You folks know I’m a self-confessed packaging whore, and the box the Red Minx comes in delights me. Some toys come with pretty paperboard cartons, some with plastic cases. But the Red Minx? This baby comes in a satin lined, faux snake print covered, hand-crafted box. Scarlet and blood red, sturdy, and with a silver clasp to keep it closed. Gorgeous!

Black Label Collection Liberator Wedge

Look at this gorgeous Black Label Collection Liberator Wedge, people. It’s a simple thing, really, just like all of Liberator’s other stuff, but it’s one of the best sex-based products I’ve ever had the pleasure to own. Let me tell you why…

One of the things I do as an erotica writer, is try to keep sex real. Sex is messy, for a start, no matter how you do it. It’s noisy, sweaty, sometimes awkwardly awkward, other times awkwardly funny. Cocks slip out, orifices that have been pumped full of air tend to fart at the worst possible moment. And then there’s having to pause to reach for lubes and condoms, or toys if you use them. Sometimes there’s discomfort, or there’s folk coming too early or not early enough or not at all. And that’s all before you consider mismatched heights, leg cramps, rolling off butt elevating pillows, falling off the bed and making a window in the wardrobe door with your fucking face… Continue reading “Black Label Collection Liberator Wedge”

Kink Craft Paracord Flogger Kit

I’m starting this review in a state of excitement. An eager little beaver with a goal in mind. See, usually I’d get to know a product inside and out, taking copious amounts of notes and working from them to help build what I have to say. But not this time. This time, I’m writing the review as I get to know the product, because I’m making it. Yep, it’s time for me to pick up my Kink Craft Paracord Flogger Kit and get stuck in, and I’m bringing you along for the ride.

First off, the kit comes in such a pretty box! I love the way Kink Craft present their kits. Paper lined, ribbon tied boxes, they come ready to present to whoever the maker-bee might be. If you’ve bought a kit, you’ll get everything you need inside that box. The only things you’ll want to have to hand are stuff like scissors, a ruler, a lighter. You may or may not need a craft mat, depending on your chosen product, but I use one each time I make something from Kink Craft. Continue reading “Kink Craft Paracord Flogger Kit”

Bad Kitty Corset Paddle

It’s no secret that Bad Kitty is one of my favourite brands. Their stuff ranges from subtly serious to fun and funky, and there’s a good chance that, if you have a browse through Orion’s pages, you’ll find a piece or two that calls to you. The most recent piece to catch my eye is this gorgeous Bad Kitty Corset Paddle.

Bad Kitty Corset Paddle Red Side

Though I avoid lingerie like the plague these days (fuck these body image issues), I always pause whenever I see a picture of a woman wearing a corset. I adore the femininity of them, the way they emphasise curves and conceal flaws. They’re powerful, sexy, and my favourite colour combo is black on red. Those are the colours of my personal fave bedroom outfit; red corset with black panels and black lacing, and matching shoes. It’s the only one I bought in a bigger size when I gained weight.

Kinklab ElectroWhip Neon Wand Attachment

I love e-stim. It’s sexy, stingy, and has helped me achieve an orgasm I never thought would be possible for me; the nipple orgasm. But I sometimes find that skin pads keep the sensations too localised for me to fully enjoy them, and neon wand electrodes are too tame. However, there are a few products that change everything when it comes to the neon wand, and one of them is the Kinklab ElectroWhip.

It looks like an unassuming, innocent little flogger, doesn’t it? Its eight, 6mm wide falls look tame and a bit cheap when they’re dangling limply from the end of the Neon Wand. They deliver a sharp strike, for sure, cos they’re made from rubber, but they don’t look like they could ever be the reason behind tears of pain spilling down a person’s cheeks.

Omeha Soy Wax Massage Candle by Desirables

Here at the Scandal household, massage candles are one of our most purchased ‘consumable’ products. As the receiver, I love the heat, scents and relaxation a good candle brings. As the poor sod with the arthritic thumbs, the Fella appreciates a decent bit of glide. And one of the nicest candles we’ve tried this year is this gorgeous Omeha Soy Wax Massage Candle by Desirables.

Presented in a simple frosted glass jar, the Desirables candle is perfect for gifting, and at 120ml (4oz) with an approximate 15 hour burn time, it keeps on giving for quite a few sessions.

While it’s solid and unlit in its jar, the wax looks creamy and kinda like a soft cheese. In the mix along with the soy wax there is mango seed butter, sunflower seed oil, a blend of fruity, floral and woody oils and a helping of skin softening Vitamin E. All natural ingredients, no nasty chemicals, and suitable for vegans. Nice! Continue reading “Omeha Soy Wax Massage Candle by Desirables”

Aslan Leather Nicki Minx Strap On Harness

When the lovely folk at Uberkinky gave me the opportunity to choose a harness for review, I opened the link with pursed lips and a critical eye. I have a harness that sings an irresistible siren song to the dark side of me, so I wondered if there would be anything there that would grab my attention. A quick look had the girly girl in me squealing with joy when I spotted the Aslan Leather Nicki Minx Strap-On Harness. I didn’t even realise Uberkinky stocked Aslan Leather strap-ons!

No sooner was it here than was it out of the bag and in my face. Yes, I did say I put the harness in my face. For me, the scent of leather is one of the most arousing scents there is, so I couldn’t resist a deep hit. Continue reading “Aslan Leather Nicki Minx Strap On Harness”

Zado Leather Neck and Handcuffs

Of all the brands of bondage gear we’ve used, when it comes to restraints, Zado has to be a favourite. I’ve not had one product of theirs that has failed to impress me, and the Zado Leather Neck and Handcuffs set is no exception.

I find something supremely sexy about wrist to neck restraints. I’ve had my various limbs trussed up in many different ways, but nothing is quite so thrilling/horrifying for me as being unable to lower my arms. It gives me no choice but to have my hands flapping near my head, often slapping myself accidentally whenever I’m jerked without warning. And if the Fella decides, in a moment of pure devilment, to tickle me, I can do fuck all about it other than scream. Continue reading “Zado Leather Neck and Handcuffs”

Kink Craft Cane with Paracord Handle

As you might know if you’ve had a mooch around other posts here on Scandarella, I attended Eroticon this year. This conference for kinky, creative minds was sponsored by a bunch of awesome sex-positive companies, one of which was the mighty Kink Craft, the lovely folks behind this Kink Craft Cane with Paracord Handle I’m about to tell you all about.

I’ve reviewed for Kink Craft a number of times now (and have had nothing but positive things to say about their DIY kinky kits) but I didn’t manage to drag my anxiety ridden self over to Pixie and Andrew until what was almost the final hour of the final day of Eroticon.
