Review: California Exotics Inspire Remote Teaser

California Exotics Inspire Teaser my tickle trunk review

I keep reading great reviews of the Cal Exotics Inspire line, but obviously I just chose the wrong products, because for fuck’s sake, this thing is bad. If you’re in a hurry, I’ll save you a couple paragraphs: a dying housefly could fall into my pants and buzz away in its last moments of life and it would be about as pleasant as the Inspire Teaser.

Much like I mentioned with the Inspire Wand, it just looks so pretty, and its “travel & tease”-friendly demeanour intrigued me. My man has always been interested in a panty-play toy that we could sneak around with in public, but he’s never even seen this thing, because it doesn’t work.

Review: Fun Factory Bouncer

fun factory bouncer dildo review my tickle trunk

Go back to my earlier days of Twitter and you’ll see one Tweet of desperation – “my world for a Fun Factory Bouncer”. I don’t know what it was, I wasn’t even particularly into dildos at the time, and I had only just recently become acquainted with Fun Factory. I’d just never seen anything like it – like kegel balls for fucking!

The Bouncer by Fun Factory has the unique feature of rotating weights within a dildo, where each bulge along the shaft contains a weight that shakes with the movements of the dildo (perhaps you’ve heard the Bouncer referred to as “the shake weight of dildos”). Its flat base works remarkably well as a short-term suction cup, as well as making it suitable for anal use; I can’t say I’ve tried it as such, but with the smooth waves formed in matte silicone, I can imagine it would feel pretty great. The Bouncer also has the unique feature of COMING IN RED. I mean yes, they also come in the other predictable colours of black and pink, but… red!

Is Virtual Reality The Next Step In Sex Toys?

my tickle trunk VR porn vitafun sex toys

Porn as a concept is meant to tap into your deepest fantasies – threesomes, gangbangs, POV blowjobs – they’re all a part of fulfilling those deepest, darkest desires. The last few years have seen incredible growth in the world of virtual reality, with over 43 million VR users worldwide, so with this revolution well underway, of course porn-makers are taking advantage.

The first adult virtual realities began showing up in late 2014 and haven’t slowed down; with the limited technology at the time, videos were short and low-quality, but now…

Review: Lovehoney Mini USB Rechargeable Wand

Lovehoney Mini USB Rechargeable Wand my tickle trunk review

I’ve mentioned before my obsession with finding a decent wireless wand; yes, I should just get a Magic Wand Rechargeable already, but the price point just doesn’t work for me, and I can’t say I’m complaining about the journey.

That said, let’s not say for a moment that we’re comparing the Lovehoney Mini Rechargeable Wand and the Magic Wand Rechargeable here, because that’s like comparing apples and grapes. I know the title says “mini” but damn, it’s mini. Because of its size, you can’t expect a deep rumble, but I’m happy to say it’s not the type of buzziness that lasers my genitals off. I’ve gotten off very successfully, many, many times, and I’ll continue to keep this by my desk for those “ooooo what’s this” moments that we all come across on the internet.

G.I. Josephine

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.

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.
