G.I. Josephine my tickle trunk story

When I was younger, I loved Barbies. Hated dolls, loved Barbies. I think as long as they were smaller than me and had implied daddy issues, it was much less intimidating. Much like writing (or The Sims), they provided a fun way to act out a personal fantasy (at this age, having friends), and I think the non-threatening demeanor of Barbie was also helped when I discovered that I could pop her head off with little to no effort. It turned into a standard reaction while acting them out. “Skipper, you stole my shoes!” *head pops off*

MEO Berlin Wrist & Ankle Restraints

MEO Berlin Wrist & Ankle Restraints my tickle trunk review

Ever since I watched my boyfriend ooo and aaah at a pair of cushioned leather restraints at last year’s sex show, I knew a pair would find a way into in our life eventually.

However, my excitement to finally have a plush pair of leather cuffs like this Berlin set from MEO was killed by the realization that they didn’t come with the D-hooks to tie them together (not sure if D-hooks is the right term, but it’s what I got). So my restraints were really just… cuffs. I was a little annoyed, but I did go to the hardware store and drop a couple dollars on this staple so that I get could started.

Lovehoney Canada Giveaway!

Lovehoney Canada Giveaway my tickle trunk dildo vibrator

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen me lose control when I found out Lovehoney had come to CANADA!! In terms of online sex toy selection, Canada is pretty underrepresented with really only one big-name retailer offering decent prices. We can of course use Lovehoney.com, but then we not only deal with the shaft-tacular exchange rate, but we’re at risk of extra duty charges once our toys arrive.

To celebrate Lovehoney Canada’s launch, I’ve partnered with them for a giveaway that’s twice the fun! We all know how much I love a dildo/vibe combo (depend on it, really), so I want to spread the love with TWO toys! This contest is open to Canada, USA, UK, & Australia, and both toys are brand new.

Review: Lovehoney Lifelike 8-Inch Silicone Dildo

my tickle trunk review Lovehoney Lifelike Silicone 8 Inch Pink Dildo with Suction Cup

It’s big.
It’s pink.
It’s veiny.
Those are three statements that cannot be exaggerated enough and are really the pillars of this Lovehoney Silicone Dildo. I mean if it has to be pink, then it might as well be hot pink. What I like most about it is that it pairs the realistic with the non-realistic; from the hot pink colour to the veins you can feel even when inside, it merges the best of both worlds.

For starters, let’s talk about that coronal ridge. You can see even in photos that this sucker is hella pronounced, and this is perfect if you’re a texture queen. I’ve mentioned before that I am not, but this definitely provides a different feeling that drives home the fact that this isn’t just another dick. My partner and I have used it during sex to simulate if someone else were fucking me as well, and it was clear as day that this was not my partner inside of me – not with that cliff of a coronal ridge.

Review: Satisfyer Pro 2

my tickle trunk satisfyer pro 2 review

I laid back on the couch, panting, holding the Satisfyer Pro 2 in my hand, trying make sense of what the hell had just happened.

When I first got the Satisfyer Pro 2 (which I’m referring to as the Satisfyer from now on for simplicity’s sake), I tried it about half a dozen times without success; the sensation was too intense, too pinpoint, even on the lowest setting (if I’m honest, the 11 settings didn’t seem to vary TOO much). I’d enjoy it for a few seconds, work myself up a bit, then find my entire vulva itchy and overloaded with such a weird tickle and have to remove it. I was feeling pretty bummed that my clitoris wasn’t down with the newest revolution in clitoral pleasure; I wanted so much to like it!

Pleasure Panel Review: Affordable Leather Y Hogtie Restraints

my tickle trunk cara sutra pleasure panel affordable leather y hogtie review

I’ve wanted to have the option of being hogtied for quite some time (alright, my boyfriend has), and thanks to Affordable Leather, this was made possible through Cara Sutra’s Pleasure Panel. I’ve lovingly reviewed the Y Hogtie Restraint set over there, but here’s a quick excerpt to give a nice tease (click here to read the whole review!)

For a while I was my man’s plaything as he flipped me over and teased me, all the while my hands being completely helpless and my ankles strapped together. At one point I even thought to myself “If I were to ever be tied up and abandoned in any sexual position, this is probably the most screwed I could be”.

Review: OVO S1 Lay-On Vibrator

ovo s1 lay-on vibrator review my tickle trunk

The OVO S1 is a lay-on vibrator, and the first I’ve ever owned. I was really excited because I had two thoughts when I first heard about the existence of lay-on vibrators:

  1. “Wait. I’m not the only one who sometimes masturbates while laying on my stomach?”
  2. “There are vibrators JUST for that? I need one!”

From what I can tell, it’s the select few who are able to jack off face-down, and I get it. This particular position stems from my childhood when I didn’t know what I was doing or why lying on my hands down there felt good. As I got older, I knew what I was doing, but I knew it was not how women touched themselves in mainstream media, so I thought I was weird. Just seeing the existence of a lay-on vibrator confirmed that I wasn’t alone, and I wanted to know if this style would actually enhance this position of masturbation.

Review: Tantus Flex

tantus flex dildo review my tickle trunk

It comes as no surprise to regular readers that DP is my dream fantasy. But it comes as a surprise to me that when it comes to body-safe toys, DP options are few and far between, and unfortunately after trying out the Flex, I’m still left empty in the viable DP toys category.

I’ll jump to the main problem I had with Flex: the anal beads are… distracting. They’re just so small yet perfectly spaced so that I have to feel every single one whether I want to or not. If I want to thrust the dildo, I’m left with no choice but to thrust the beads as well, and with each little * boop boop boop * going in and out of me, it takes away from the rest of the experience and keeps an ongoing dialogue in my brain of “there’s something going in my butt, there’s something going in my butt…”

Review: California Exotics Inspire Ultimate Wand

california exotics inspire ultimate vibrating wand review my tickle trunk

Oh, California Exotics. One of my first reviews was of the Entice Hope – a little egg vibe by CalExotics – and it wasn’t so bad, but I did feel like the company was capable of more in their products. I saw no reason why they couldn’t make good toys, and while the Entice Hope was fine, it’s the highest praise I’ve been able to give them so far. I’m kind of throwing up my hands at this point.

The Inspire line by California Exotics seemed different. Everything is covered in a pastel pink layer of satin-finish silicone, and proceeds from these products are donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer. The variety within this line toys was intriguing, including a teaser, an arouser, and even a breast massager – all products that are meant to evoke arousal and therapy following the trauma of breast cancer. One of my chosen products was the Ultimate Wand, and as someone who’s constantly on the journey to find a good, compact wand, I was excited by its appearance and hopeful of its potential.

Review: Désirables Dalia

désirables dalia dildo my tickle trunk review

I’ve never really mentioned the A-spot in any of my posts. It’s not because I haven’t found it, or because I don’t believe the hype, but simply because it’s never been a very prominent sensation for me. I might feel it sometimes, but overall it just feels like a bypass when you’ve overshot the G-spot, nothing more than an afterthought. Well shut the front door, because Dalia by Montreal company Désirables has made me into a believer.

That delicate little porcelain curve may be designed for stellar G-spot stimulation, but its firm and easy-glide material makes it a champ for lightly caressing the A-spot and taking it from mere footnote to leading star. It awoke something within me when I felt an unfamiliar tingle upon finding it with this beauty, and that bulbous, tulip-shaped end rubs so very gently that it could potentially find yours as well.
