So far, it seems to be the year of favourite brands here at Scandarella. I’ve written about a bunch of dildos by brands I love and the odd vibe, and now it’s time for some butt stuff. Love Pipedream or hate ‘em, it’s hard to deny that their Icicles line is chock full of gorgeous things. In time for Valentine’s Day, my lovely sponsor, Forbidden Pleasures sent me a piece that I’ve coveted for some time. The appropriately romantic Icicles No 76 Rose Butt Plug.
Now, the first thing I need to tell y’all about the Icicles No 76 is that it’s tiny. Not the overall plug, but the insertable part. At 2” long with a circumference of 3.75”, it’s pretty much the same size as my big toe. See, I told ya, it’s really very small. If you’ve read any of my reviews before, you know that it’s far too little to do much of anything for my butt. And if you’re used to stuffing yours with anything bigger than a thumb, it probably won’t do much for you, either. Continue reading “Icicles No 76 Rose Butt Plug Review” →
Anal hooks. I’ve been wanting to try one of these bad boys for ages, but I kept on putting it off. I’m not even 100% sure why cos I’m usually the type that’s all about new sensations. Whatever it was that made me overlook them whenever the opportunity to snag one arose, I wasn’t ever able to shake the feeling that I needed to know how wearing one would feel. Whether it would add or detract from our play. Well, thanks to Honour sending me their HNRX Bondage Anal Hook for review, I now know.
When I first whipped it out of its black cloth bag my initial thought was, Judas Priest, look at the length of that frigging handle! Including the ring (but excluding the ball) and following the curve, the hook measures 15-inches. Now, I’ve got some mammoth insertables, so this centimetre-thick piece of metal shouldn’t have freaked me out. But it did. It was the good kind of freaked out that gets a bod all tingly and excited, but I will admit that it made me nervous. Continue reading “HNRX Bondage Anal Hook Review” →
For someone who doesn’t identify as a furry, or even indulge in pet play beyond the ‘see if I like it’ stage, my love for tail adorned butt plugs is intense. There’s just something so sensual about them, something so ‘other’ that I can’t get enough of. Be it pony, fox, or unicorn, I’m always super excited when I get to try a new tail. And this one, the Furry Fantasy Black Panther Tail from Sex Toys UK is an absolute corker.
Like all Furry Fantasy tails, the Black Panther Tail comes in a fabric storage pouch. While these bags are usually boons, I’d definitely recommend getting your toy out of there post haste. See, it’s quite a lengthy tail and the bag is rather small, so the whole piece is folded and wrapped in order to fit. This results in kinkiness and not the kind you’re probably looking for. To straighten mine out, I clipped a bunch of weighted nipple clamps onto the end of the tail and hung it up from the plug. It took a few days for the kinks to soften but it worked well enough in the end. Continue reading “Furry Fantasy Black Panther Tail Review” →
I love putting stuff up my butt. It’s a cold, hard fact that the orgasms I get via anal penetration are always stronger than any vaginal based climax I have. If you pop into Scandarella often you’ll probably know that I adore big and implausible toys for anal. It probably seems like I spend all my days straddling stuff the size of traffic cones. I don’t, though. Just as it is with dildos, I sometimes need a smaller, less challenging toy, and one such product that came to me in recent months is the Rocks Off Vortex.
Now, I’m not the biggest Rocks Off fan in the world. Don’t get me wrong, I think their stuff is always gorgeous, always well designed, and always well executed. And I had a passionate love affair with their bullets back when my mild interest in sex toys first morphed into an obsession. But with time their vibes became less effective for me, so now they’re pretty much exclusively for the Fella’s use, with exceptions, of course. The Vortex is one of those exceptions.

Does your butt love a bit of bling? Yeah, mine does too. A friend of mine recently said that she thinks sparkly based butt plugs are going out of fashion. I called bullshit with a lot more intensity than the situation called for. But when you have stuff like this little gem – the You2Toys Diamond Silicone Plug from Orion – in your toy cupboard, it’s hard not to get defensive of a trend that’s still going strong.
One of my favourite things about this plug is its base. So many plugs I see when browsing through online toy shops (which is something I spend an inordinate amount of time doing) have bases that I wouldn’t consider anal safe. Squishy rings that ain’t ever stopping full insertion. Round bases that are the same size of or smaller than the bulb. And the worst of the worst, bases that are only marginally bigger than the neck of the toy. Continue reading “You2Toys Diamond Silicone Plug” →
If you’re a regular visitor to Scandarella, you may remember the review I wrote a while back for a Crystal Delights Pony Plug. A tiny butt plug with a gorgeous, flowing multi-coloured tail. I got a bunch of messages about that piece, and while most of the folks who got in touch loved it, almost all of them said the price point was too high. And a good few of them said the plug was far too small. So, I looked for an alternative that’s inexpensive, good quality, and just as lovely as the pricey one, and I think I’ve found it. It’s the NS Novelties Unicorn Tails Butt Plug.
It’s obvious from the photos that this isn’t a like for like toy. Unlike the Crystal Delights offering, this plug is made of silicone. Super smooth, seamless, jet black silicone. It’s the kind of stuff that doesn’t need a lot of lube to get its slick on. Just a thin coating is enough to make insertion nice and comfy. Continue reading “NS Novelties Unicorn Tails Butt Plug” →
Want to know what I get a lot of? Emails. Some are spam, some are business enquiries, and others – the best ones, in my opinion – are from you, my lovely readers. Some of them are super sweet compliments that make me blush, and some make my heart swell with pride. They’re the ones where you ask me for my advice or for toy recommendations. One query I had a lot in the lead up to Valentine’s Day was all to do with fancy pants gifts for girlfriends and wives. I recommended so many toys over a three-week span, and this Persian Palm Livia Ceramic Butt Plug came up more than once.
If you’ve been a Scandarella reader for a while you might know that this isn’t the first Persian Palm product I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing. At the back end of 2016, I wrote about my experiences with the Caterina Dildo and Persian Palm’s custom design service. This time the product is from Luxury Vibrators and is from a selection of predesigned Persian Palm toys they carry. Continue reading “Persian Palm Livia Ceramic Butt Plug” →
Do you wanna know what one of my hard limits is? Rimming. I can give it (while pulling a face like I’m sucking a lemon) but I cannot take it. Seriously, if the Fella’s tongue gets too close to my pucker I climb the wall backwards to get away from him. It’s not the sensation I dislike, though. I just can’t accept a tongue up or on my arse, it just ain’t happening. However, if it ain’t poking out of a mouth I’m definitely game. That’s why I opted to review the B-Vibe Rimming Butt Plug when MEO asked what I fancied.
Obviously, I had no expectations that it would feel anything like actual rimming. I still remember my first rabbit vibe. Noisy and a bit little bit like running a cheese grater over my pubic bone at certain angles. I kinda expected the same thing from this plug, but I still wanted to give it a go. How could I resist the thought of a remote-controlled spin dryer causing a ruckus in my tuchus? Continue reading “B-Vibe Rimming Butt Plug” →
While I was at Eroticon last year I received an email. It was from a company called So Divine and they were asking me if I’d like to review for them. I’d never heard of them until that day when I spied a display at the conference, but I said I’d love to. They sent me one of everything in their line-up, which at the time was five products. Fast forward almost a year and that company I’d never heard of has their name up in lights. They’ve added more vibes to their repertoire, and also a range of different sized anal toys. After reviewing the smallest member of the Booty Plug family, I was sent the largest. It’s called the So Divine Wild Thing Booty Plug and here are my thoughts.
Like all So Divine products, the Wild Thing is made of silicone. Soft, silky silicone that comes in one of their two signature colours, purple. The other colour they have an abundance of is pink. Just like the itty-bitty version, the plug is completely smooth. There are no seams, no flaws, no nothing. Everything about it is quality and it’s definitely got longevity, so when you consider that it’s only £20-ish you gotta agree that it’s a bargain. Continue reading “So Divine Wild Thing Booty Plug” →
One of the best things an anal play lover can buy for their butt is a jiggly butt plug. I love the things, but there are surprisingly few of them to choose from. You can find a few different shapes if you look for them, such as the Fun Factory B-Balls or this rather pleasant Roll Play one. Recently, the gorgeous B-Vibe Snug Plug 3 became a new addition to my butt quivering collection, and I’m so glad it did!
While B-Vibe is well known for their rechargeable vibrating stuff – like the Triplet Plug, for example – their Snug Plugs aren’t powered by motors. They’re powered by gravity and the movements of our very own butts. The insides are hollowed out and the free-roaming weights that fill the cavity are where the sensation comes from. They’re kinda like Geisha balls for your bum. Continue reading “B-Vibe Snug Plug 3” →
