One of the best things to ever happen to my solo sex life was the discovery of glass sex toys. The number of different designs, shapes, and colours they come in is nothing less than staggering. Butt plugs, anal probes, straight dildos, semi-realistic dildos, g-spot dildos. There’s pretty much a glass insertable out there for every type of penetrative play, and to suit every pocket. My collection ranges from £8 butt plugs to a £100+ hand blown tentacle. And Icicles. Loads of Pipedream’s Icicles and the latest piece from that line to dazzle me is the Icicles No 69.
Love em or hate em, Pipedream did a magical thing when they released their Icicles range into the wild. Some of the pieces available are 100% no-frills, straight up and down clear glass, but others are a bit more special. My own first Icicles love was the beautiful tentacle that is the No 24. And then soon after, I fell for the super slim, pointy tentacle, the No 52. To my mind, the No 69 completes the triad of pink Icicles tentacles. Continue reading “Icicles No 69 Pink Glass Dildo”
Have you ever had someone tell you that your eyes are bigger than your belly? Kinda makes you blush, right? Well, imagine how red my cheeks went when the Fella took one look at the Hankey’s Toys Seahorse Dildo and suggested that I had eyes bigger than my cunt.
Why’d I blush? Cos it was never my intention that such a massive toy would fit through my front door. I blushed when I had to explain that I was bringing it in through the back. I’ve had to take a few jokey comments about how big my arsehole must be after past reviews. I’ve been asked how I manage to hold my shit in (I mean, who the fuck asks a question like that, though?!). So, given all of that, I was momentarily sensitive about my penchant for big assed dildos. Continue reading “Hankey’s Toys Seahorse Dildo”
Is steampunk your aesthetic? Do wires, nuts and bolts get your motor running? Does the idea of filthy exploration in a far-flung space station make you long for lift-off? Or, do you just love getting your orifices around a good, chunky dong? If you say aye to any of those things, you need a Tantus Steam Hunk Super Soft Dildo in your life.
You may or may not know that Tantus reigns supreme at the top of my fave dildo makers list. In my last Tantus review (this one) I said that the day had to be coming where I tried a dildo of theirs that I didn’t like. Today is not that day. Continue reading “Tantus Steam Hunk Super Soft Dildo”
What happens when one of your favourite sex toy brands gives a nod to one of your favourite metal bands? The Fun Factory Bück Dich, that’s what. Yep, in homage to their fellow German icon, industrial metal band Rammstein, Fun Factory has brought us one of the most spectacular spankable-insertables ever.
Translated from German into English, Bück Dich means ‘bend over’ and it’s the title of one of Rammstein’s songs. Give it a listen (and read the translation if you, like me, don’t speak German) and you’ll see that it was made to be given the kinky toy treatment. Continue reading “Fun Factory Bück Dich”
As regular Scandarella readers will probably know, I love big ol’ dildos. I love to have ‘em big in every direction and I absolutely adore enormous fantasy stuff. But sometimes, when lying in bed alone in the middle of the night, I don’t want to be hefting pounds of silicone around and giving my arms a wanky workout. I want simple, light, realistic, and hard. The toy that’s been satisfying those needs for me in recent weeks is the Lovehoney Lifelike Lover 8” Silicone Dildo.
By fuck, is this thing pink. It’s so bright it has a frigging aura. I’ve said many times that pink is a boring colour for sex toys, but these days I think that this 80s-esque neon is actually kinda cool. I’ve got some bold colours on my dildo shelves but this one has to be the most eye-catching. Continue reading “Lovehoney Lifelike Lover 8″ Silicone Dildo”
When it comes to non-fantasy silicone dildos, my trifecta of favourite brands is Tantus, Fun Factory, and Vixen Creations. Each one offers something different, whether it be size, shape, or simplicity. As a rule, it’s the ultra-realistic Vixskin I look for when checking out Vixen’s wares. I love that stuff so much, it’s the most realistic feeling silicone I’ve tried to date. But Vixskin isn’t all Vixen have to offer, though. They still make toys in their ‘original formula’ silicone, and that’s what this gorgeous Vixen Creations Gee Whizzard is made of.
I’ve wanted to get my hands on one of these bad boys for ages, so was past myself with excitement when the very lovely Carolyn from Betty’s Toy Box offered to send me one for review. See, I’m one of those less than sensible people who insert their Doxy into their vagina on occasion. I don’t endorse the practice cos it ain’t good for the wand and it’s only fun until you have to take it back out again, but I won’t lie and say it doesn’t feel incredible.

The thing I adore most about fantasy dildos is how different one is from the next. Realistic dongs are much of a muchness, differing only when it comes to size, but fantasy ones? There’s pretty much no limit to their designs, and they’re available in almost any size that takes a person’s fancy. Just yesterday I reviewed a smallish, beautifully coloured dragon dildo. And today? Today I’m at the other end of the scale, reviewing the coal black behemoth that is the Mr Hankey’s BFG.
When I told the Fella I had a toy called the BFG on its way he rolled his eyes and said, “Big Friendly Giant?” I put my hands about two feet apart and replied, “Nope. Big Fucking Genital.” Ha, you should have seen his face. The sizes of the dildos I lust after now make him so nervous, poor lad. So much so he didn’t even want to look at the toys in my Mr Hankey’s package when it arrived. Continue reading “Mr Hankey’s BFG XL Dildo”
Alert! Alert! This review contains images of what could possibly be the cutest dildo ever poured. In my opinion, of course. But once you get a close up look at the Bad Dragon Meng I reckon you’ll have to agree that it’s one of the finest dildo designs you’re ever likely to see. Cos it ain’t just a silicone dragon dick. No, sir, it’s a silicone dick that’s a dragon. Like, a head to tail, claws and all dragon. Bloody marvellous!
Am I gonna gush all the way through this review? Probably. See, I’m one of ‘those’ people. The ones who live 98% of their lives lost in some fantasy novel, movie, TV show or another. Fantasy and mythological creatures fascinate me, be they mermaids, unicorns, vamps, ghosts or ghoulies. But there’s a special place in my heart for dragons (and vamps and mermaids) and I fucking love that places like Bad Dragon exist cos their wares have allowed me to bring one of my favourite creatures into my bedroom. Continue reading “Bad Dragon Meng”
I’ve made no secret of the fact that some of my favourite sex toys are inexpensive glass dildos from Lovehoney. I’ve got loads of them, but only two live on my bedside table. One of them is a curved affair with beads that gradually increase in size until they reach a big, bulbous base. Even after three and a half years I still love it, so when I saw that Lovehoney had echoed the design in steel I couldn’t refuse the chance to review it. So now, I’m bringing you my thoughts on the Lovehoney Desire Steel Dildo.
As part of Lovehoney’s premium line, the Desire Steel Dildo is beautifully presented. All there is to the packaging is a simple outer sleeve that covers an even simpler hard-card presentation box that doubles as a storage solution, but it’s lovely and super giftable. Continue reading “Lovehoney Desire Steel Dildo – Beaded”
If you’ve been around blogs, sex toy Twitter, or sex shop forums, you’ve probably been asked the following question; if you could only use one type of toy for the rest of your life, what would it be? I used to hesitate when faced with this query, but not now. Now I pretty much scream DILDOS then go on a panicked dildo buying spree. I love all kinds of dildos, but the best kind are the ones that are made especially for me. Colours, sizes, firmness, vac-u-lock holes, cumtubes, suction cups… It’s all customisable and bloody wonderful. The latest ‘made for me’ dildo to join my collection is the glorious Mister Vain Dildo by Vain Toys.
Vain Toys is a young, Denmark based company that makes lovely silicone dildos and butt plugs in a huge array of colours. Every step of the process, from sketching to pouring, is done in-house. While the shapes and sizes of each piece are non-negotiable, the rest is up to the customer. Once I’d made my choices, I had my dildo in my grabby hands within probably a week and a half. Speedy, and discreetly packaged, too. Continue reading “Vain Toys Mister Vain Dildo”
