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.

Have you ever wanted a sex toy purely because its decorative design makes you squeal like a tickled pig? I’ve experienced this many a time, and each and every time I’ve been nervous that maybe my eyes were bigger than the possibility of reaching orgasm with whatever toy has captured my attention. This was the case with the Tokidoki Unicorn Wand from Lovehoney. Because it’s cuter than kittens, I had it on a pedestal. But once I finally had it in my hands I was immediately worried that it would end up being a shelf sitter.
Just look at it, though. Isn’t it stunning? The Fella calls it my happy baton cos every time I look at it I ball my fists and grin like it’s Christmas morning. It’s bold, bright, and modelled on Stellina from the Tokidoki Unicorno line. Continue reading “Tokidoki Unicorn Wand” →
Lovehoney has done it again, folks. Ahead of the release of the third Fifty Shades movie hitting theatres in February, they’ve unleashed the accompanying toy line on the world. And just in time for Christmas, too! So far, I’ve loved the products that have been inspired by the books, and I’ve been lucky enough to get to road test a super fancy piece from the new stuff; the rather lovely Fifty Shades Freed Wand, aka Awash with Sensation.
I was late to the Fifty Shades of Grey party. By the time I let my mother (who is a full on Christian Grey groupie) nag me into reading the first installment the third one was already a year or so old. It’s no secret that I quite liked the books at first. I mean, I read to escape the day to day drudge of a working-class life, and where better to go than into the glitzy world of a fucked up bazillionaire with a penchant for evil sex?

Okay, I’m gonna get the obvious out of the way before I go any further. If the mighty Doxy and the Hitachi Magic Wand Rechargeable had an illicit love affair with loads of dirty, unprotected wand sex, the resulting lovechild would undoubtedly be the Le Wand Rechargeable Cordless Massager.
I know it’s been discussed, at length, with passion (and not a small amount bitterness) on social media. You can probably see why just by looking at it. I can see why just by looking at it. The similarity to those two market leading wands is unmistakable. Continue reading “Le Wand Rechargeable Cordless Massager” →
One of my most favourite companies to review for is Orion Versand. I adore looking through their pages, searching for hidden gems that I can bring to your attention, lovely readers. Close2You is a range of theirs that offers some lovely products, and this review is for one of them. The Close2You Rilassamento Rechargeable Wand.
As soon as I laid eyes on this thing I knew I needed to try it. I just got such a good vibe from it (pun totally intended). It looked like one of those predictable products. You know the ones. They look like they’ll be well-made, lovely to hold and easy to use, but you know the power and vibe quality will be a wild-card. Continue reading “Close2You Rilassamento Rechargeable Wand” →
If you’re here in the UK, you may have noticed that there’s a heat wave going on. Personally, I think every degree of it over 15 needs to bike it back to Hades where it belongs. I do not like hot days. I’m an autumn girl at heart, but I do like some things about summer. Splashing in paddling pools, the chinking of beer glasses, the cheery tinkle of the ice cream man coming to rob me blind. And if there was ever a sex toy that encapsulated all that is summer for me, it would be the i-Scream by Shiri Zinn.
Before I say anything else, I’m gonna tell you something awesome about Shiri Zinn; for each i-Scream sold, she donates a portion of the profits to a charity for adolescent girls in Africa. As far as I’m aware (and please do correct me in the comments if I’m wrong) no other manufacturer/retailer in the sex toys industry does this. See. Awesome.

When I received an email from So Divine asking if I’d like to review a bunch of their products, I genuinely clapped my hands with glee. Why? Because I’d already spotted the So Divine Wicked Game Magic Wand and, oh, how I wanted it!
It was the first thing I got my hands on when the package arrived (and there was a lot of stuff in that parcel so keep an eye out for more So Divine reviews!). I probably don’t need to remind you that I’m a packaging junkie, but I will. Pretty, simple, and tasteful, it’s a delight to open a parcel with a So Divine product in it.

When I first spotted the ZackZack Cordless E-Stim Wand Massager on MEO’s website I got myself a bit overexcited. A wand that had the potential to vibrate and electrocute my clit to orgasm? Yes please!
As always, packaging is my first impression of a toy. I have to say that I was less than impressed with the box the ZackZack came in. It’s cheap and tacky looking, and there are no instructions printed anywere. I did spot some cautionary info but it was partially covered by an MEO sticker.

When the packaging and weight of a product impresses you before you even get a look at what’s in the box, you know there’s a good chance you’ve got something special on your hands. That’s how it was when the O-Wand touched down at the Scandarella household.
The Fella knows I’m a sucker for pretty packaging, but even he had to roll his eyes at all my oohing and aahing. Looking back on that day I have to say he had a right to snigger at me. I was showing him the tasteful sleeve and the discreet box with all the little compartments inside like I was showing off a microwave on the Price is Right.
