Are you a sex toy lover who travels a lot? Do you ever look at your collection and think, which of you lovely wee things are going in my suitcase? I know I’d be like that if I had to go anywhere, I couldn’t be without at least one toy. I also know that, should I get the chance to pop off on holiday or even for a weekend away, I’ve found the very toy I’ll be rolling up in a pair of knickers. Yep, the Satisfyer Pro Traveler is the one that will travel with me.
I’ll hold my hands up now and say that I didn’t think I’d ever find a Satisfyer product that beat my beloved Womanizer. But the Pro Traveler is so perfect for what it’s designed for I can’t help but think that I might have. I thought that the Womanizer Starlet was the perfect pint-sized air pulse travel companion, but this one has it beat. Continue reading “Satisfyer Pro Traveler Clitoral Stimulator”
A couple of months ago, I was sent the loveliest of gifts from one of my favourite brands; We-Vibe. This awesome company has just recently celebrated a milestone anniversary. Ten years of spreading sexual happiness with gems like the Nova, Ditto, and of course the iconic Tango. To mark the occasion with style they released a limited-edition two-piece set featuring two of their most prized products. When getting starry-eyed over the set specific colours I realised I’ve yet to write any kind of detailed review about my beloved Tango, and as one of those babies comes in this set I thought it was high time. So here are my thoughts on the We-Vibe Anniversary Collection.
As I said above, this set comprises of two products. Alongside the Tango is the cream of We-Vibe’s wearable vibrator crop, the Sync and its remote control. You might be wondering what’s so special about bundling two already well-received products together, and I’m gonna tell you. Continue reading “We-Vibe Anniversary Collection”
One of my most popular reviews to date is the one I wrote for the MiaMaxx Thrusting Vibrator. That little handheld fucking machine gets so much attention here on Scandarella. If you’ve not read that particular review, here’s a spoiler; I wasn’t impressed. The thing was noisy, I found it awkward to use with my short arms and bulky frame. When the creators of MiaMaxx read that review they offered to send me a couple of products. One intended to make using the toy easier for me, and the other to offer a different sensation while I tried it out.
Before I talk about those, though, I’ll tell you a bit about my MiaMaxx. No, I’m not gonna rehash an old review. See, before I even got a chance to try out my new goodies, my MiaMaxx croaked. There was no life in the old bugger at all. So, being the awesomely generous company that they are, MiaMaxx sent me a new toy! Continue reading “MiaMaxx Thrusting Vibrator, Stand, & Xara Sleeve”
It may surprise you to read that I never expected to become such a huge fan of wand vibrators. Back when I got my first one I couldn’t get anywhere near orgasm with it. It was too buzzy and too noisy, the stimulation it provided far too broad. Whenever I used it my entire vulva would end up numb. I’d end up pissed off and I’d swear that I’d never buy another wand again. Fast forward some four odd years and I now have at least a dozen wands, four of which are currently stashed on and around my bedside table. Three of them are Doxy wands, and the forth is the LELO Smart Wand Large.
LELO is such a divisive brand these days. When it comes to their HEX condoms all you’ll hear from me is a very loud ‘nope’. I really do think those things are a thousand and one lawsuits waiting to happen and I think they should be discontinued for safety’s sake. But even though many bloggers have called time on their working relationships with LELO because of HEX (and the campaign that came with it) I can’t bring myself to write them off completely. Not when I’ve loved pretty much every toy of theirs that’s ever hung out between my thighs. Continue reading “LELO Smart Wand Large”
About a month and a bit before Scandarella became a thing, I got an email from the mighty Cara Sutra. Her Christmas break was upon her and she had a product that needed reviewing. Not wanting to break her own ‘no reviews’ rule, she asked me if I could do it for the Pleasure Panel. Of course I said yes, because it was Cara, and it was an awesome sounding product. And I don’t think I’ve seen anything like it since. Well, not until I got an email from Sex Toys UK asking me if I wanted to review the latest addition to their ace Loving Joy line. Louise (who is my STUK contact and one of the loveliest people ever) was super excited about it, and that in turn got me super excited. So, when the Loving Joy Dua was finally in my hands I couldn’t wait to start getting acquainted.
So, what is the Dua?
Basically, it’s a box full of options. An interchangeable vibrator with two gorgeous attachments. One of them is a midi-wand style attachment and the other is a rabbit. That right there is brilliant, in my opinion. I mean, could two toys be any more different than a wand and a rabbit? Not just in shape, but in size, surface contact, and stimulation type.

If there’s one sex toy that’s seriously underused at Scandarella House it would be the vibrating cock ring. Call me selfish, but I rarely get anything from them, so I think, what’s the point? Not cool, really, given that the Fella really likes them. But when one of his favourite brands releases one there’s no way would I get away with not giving it a go. That’s why I’m sat here writing about the Hot Octopuss ATOM.
Like I said, the Fella loves his Hot Octopuss stuff. I didn’t get along with my Queen Bee as much as I wanted to, though. The troubles I had with that toy run along a similar vein to those I have with vibrating cock rings. Continue reading “Hot Octopuss ATOM”
Hmmm, the Satisfyer PRO 2 Next Generation. I’ve had this thing sat in my review cupboard for ages. When it was first launched I was full of enthusiasm about it. But after reviewing a load of Satisfyer models and finding that I prefer Womanizer, I’m ashamed to admit that my interest in Satisfyer fell by the wayside.
I found myself in need of some air pulse orgasms and the only thing I had to hand that didn’t have a flat as fuck battery was the PRO 2 Next Gen. Out it came, and then I came. Over. And over. And then once more just because. I realised then that I’d sold this thing short. I’d been mean. I’d put off using it (and therefore this review) in favour of using other suction toys. It didn’t deserve that from me, and neither did Peepshow Toys, who sent me the thing to review in the first place. Peepshow, I apologise. Continue reading “Satisfyer PRO 2 Next Generation”
Well now. I’m quite sure that anyone who’s ever visited Scandarella before knows that one of my favourite brands is Fun Factory. Hand on a bible, I’d gladly swear that I’ve never tried a product of theirs that I haven’t loved. Some folks have asked why I bother reviewing Fun Factory stuff if I know the outcome before I even get a delivery, and my answer to those folks has consistently been, there’s always a first time. I mean, We-Vibe – another top five brand of mine – had a brilliant run of impressing me with their wares. Until they released the god-awful Gala, that is. I hated that thing. And that goes to show that there’s nothing stopping Fun Factory from disappointing me at some stage. The question is, would the Fun Factory Stronic G Pulsator II be the first of their products to wipe the adoring smile off my face?
If you’ve not come across a Fun Factory Pulsator before, you might need a little insight as to what these things actually are. They look very much like vibrators, but they’re not. Rather than vibrate they pulsate, hence the name. What happens is, magnets inside perform some kinda magic spell that causes the entire toy to shake. In use, that mimics a thrusting motion so Stronics are a bit like the world’s smallest hand-held sex machines. Kinda. Continue reading “Fun Factory Stronic G Pulsator II”
It’s favourite brand time! I always get ridiculously excited when Womanizer releases a new model. Like, hold my breath so I don’t squeal like a poked pig kinda excited. But with the Womanizer InsideOut, my excitement was…I dunno, muted, I guess. Reason being, before I had a chance to try Womanizer’s first dual stim offering, I reviewed the Satisfyer’s. My experience with the PRO G-Spot Rabbit in terms of fit was less than wonderful and because of it, I approached the InsideOut from a place of prepared to be disappointed caution.
All of Womanizer’s products come tastefully packaged, but I was a bit blown away by the presentation of the InsideOut. The sleek black outer case has the subtlest of branding in the form of an easy to tear off and toss sleeve. Once that’s gone you’re left with a leather look box that’s held closed with magnetic snaps. Continue reading “Womanizer InsideOut”
Even though reviewing sex toys has been a huge part of my life for some time now, I still get shaky with excitement when something new comes my way. Especially if that something new is a new concept, or if it builds on something I already know I love. That’s how it was with the Satisfyer Pro G-Spot Rabbit.
Many folks are happy with the orgasms their air pulse technology toys alone offer, but I’m always wanting more. One of my favourite ways to use my Satisfyers and Womanizers is to combine them with insertable toys. I’ve long used dildos with them – both vaginally and anally – but have recently changed to using vibrators for maximum stimulation. The orgasms I get from combos can be knock-me-out powerful, but there’s always one thing I dislike about doubling up; the effort. Continue reading “Satisfyer Pro G-Spot Rabbit”
