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”
Do you feel that? The shaking that’s coming up through the floor and making your shoes vibrate? That’s a baby elephant – aka, me – jumping up and down with excitement. Why? Cos I got a chance to review the We-Vibe Jive, hot off the assembly line. Ah, I love working with Luxury Vibrators and We-Vibe so fucking much, they’re unbelievably good to me.
When I first spotted the Jive, I kinda rolled my eyes. I couldn’t help but think, how many frigging couples’ vibes will be enough for you, We-Vibe? But while I was right in thinking the Jive is ideal for partner play, it’s not another incarnation of the G-Spot-C-Spot-Cock pleasers that We-Vibe are famous for. Continue reading “We-Vibe Jive”
Before I started blogging, I had never heard of OVO. I’d probably seen them dotted about online, but back then I struggled to see anything but the brightest stars of the sex toy universe. It was all about the Doxy, and the Womanizer, and stuff from Tantus. But I was sent a box of OVO products to review last year, and I was impressed. So, when I was offered another box this year, I jumped at the chance. Included in that second box was this, the OVO S3 Body Massager, and I’m ready to lay out my opinions.
Nobody could ever accuse OVO of making cheap, crappy products. Every single sample of their work that’s graced my playtime – be it this mini bullet or this touch-wheel controlled vibrator – has been well-made. Their designs are simple, their materials body safe and decent quality. Continue reading “OVO S3 Rechargeable Body Massager”
Vibrating cock rings. Some people love em, which is fair enough, cos they’re more versatile than you might think. But the Fella and I, well…we haven’t had much success with them in the past. There has been one or two that have worked for us, but usually they just piss me off to the point where I vow I’ll never use one again. I lie to myself, though, and here I am reviewing a vibrating cock ring. This time, it’s the We-Vibe Pivot, and it was sent my way by the ever awesome Luxury Vibrators.
We-Vibe are doing some amazing things, these days, and I’m so happy to see that they’ve shifted their focus when it comes to partner toys. Before, if you were playing with a friend, one of you had to have a vulva to get the most from a We-Vibe ‘couples’ toy. The emphasis on the likes of the Sync was on clitoral stimulation first, and then g-spot stim. Those with a penis had to make do with whatever vibes they could feel coming off the toy inside their partner. Not that penetration isn’t fun enough for the penis in and of itself, of course (or so the Fella tells me). Continue reading “We-Vibe Pivot Vibrating Cock Ring”
When people think of brands like We-Vibe, they often think in terms of cost. Understandably so, given that it’s one of the most popular mainstream luxury brands out there. Well, that’s all changing. Not the luxe status, but the price point. Like some other brands, We-Vibe have started looking into introductory models. And this, the We-Vibe Unite is one such product.
Before I tell you about it, I’ll tell you a little about the folk who sent it to me: Luxury Vibrators. Spurred on by their need to stay home with their children, Canadian besties – Bonnie & Stacie – decided to launch their very own online store. Carrying nothing but the best the sex toy market has to offer, they’ve been shipping their wares mostly throughout Canada and the United States since 2015. In a recent review package from them which saw me rolling on my bed in a glut of gorgeous toys, I found the We-Vibe Unite. So, let’s get to talking about that, shall we… Continue reading “We-Vibe Unite Partner Vibrator”
I’m sure you can all remember the recent guest review the lovely Just Jess Reviews did of the MysteryVibe Crescendo, right here at Scandarella. She wasn’t impressed at all, not unlike many other reviewers out there. Right after that review went live, MysteryVibe told me that they’d been listening to the feedback they were receiving, and they offered Jess a chance to review the new improved Crescendo. Well, this is her mini review! Did MysteryVibe really make improvements, or did they just do a few ineffectual tweaks? Check out what Jess has to say to find out!
I was super excited when MysteryVibe reached out after reading my guest review on Scandarella. My wish had come true, they had listened to bloggers’ and reviewers’ feedback and created the Crescendo 2.0 – New motors! Continue reading “MysteryVibe Crescendo Follow Up Mini Review”
You may remember that, earlier this year, I reviewed a bullet that, in my opinion, gives the We-Vibe Tango a run for its money in the power stakes. It was the Power Bullet by Loving Joy, and it’s ace. Well, another interesting product graced my doorstep recently, and it’s time to share my thoughts. Here’s the lowdown on the Loving Joy Versa.
I would imagine that, by this point, you’ve all heard of the G-Kii 2 by Je Joue, and the Crescendo by MysteryVibe. Flexible, versatile vibrators that can go from a long, deep diving internal vibe to a C-shaped dual stimulator in just a few quick clicks? Well, Versa is Loving Joy’s first foray into the poseable vibrator market. Continue reading “Loving Joy Versa Poseable Vibrator”
If I’m making a sex toy purchase I devour every review I can find before clicking ‘buy now’. I search for clues in a reviewer’s history to see if I can match their preferences to mine. Work out if they like and dislike the same things as me so I know if a toy has a chance of being right for me. But avoiding reading reviews of things I’d like to review is something I adopted early on in my reviewing days. I’ve always wanted to approach each new product with no preconceptions, no chance of my opinions being influenced by the experiences of others.
Despite my efforts at keeping my mind clear of other people’s thoughts, being exposed to generalised opinions is something that can’t be avoided. When I came across the Gvibe 2 by Fun Toys London, some of the comments I read were less than positive. Oddly, most of those folks hadn’t even tried the thing, their negative views were formed by looking at pictures of the toy online.

I’ve been taking stock, recently, thinking about how my tastes have changed over the space of a couple of years. Some things that have leapt out at me are; I’ve gone right off gingerbread lattes, I now like sun dried tomatoes in Bolognese, and I love kitsch and cute sex toys. I didn’t used to. They used to annoy me because I didn’t like to fuck things that reminded me of kids’ toys. But I got over myself and now they catch my eye time and time again.
One toy that couldn’t be cuter if it tried is the Cute Bug Dual Cock N Balls Ring from Sh! Womenstore.

There have been many incarnations of the We-Vibe wearable couple’s vibrator, but until I received the We-Vibe Sync for review, I’d only ever experienced the earliest incarnation of it. And I’d hated it. It was too small, the silicone was draggy, shiny and awful, and the vibes were terrible.
It really did put me off this type of toy, but as I’d had a successful reunion with the Eroscillator 2 (which I never thought would happen in a million years) I decided it was time to give them another chance. Continue reading “We-Vibe Sync”
