Review: Fuze Tango Double Dildo

Fuze Tango Double Dildo Review Strap On My Tickle Trunk

Oh how I rejoiced when Happy Valley Silicone agreed to send me a selection of items, and I pulled the Tango out of the box. I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t exactly what I hoped for. I jumped, I giggled, and I promptly pulled the beautiful, purple, silicone toy from its packaging to gaze at it in all its glory.

It’s no secret that I like pegging and overall strap-on play, but there’s definitely a gap to bridge between fucking someone with a surrogate dick, and getting real genital stimulation for yourself at the same time. As a cis woman, it’s not so much about having the dick as it is being able use it and get pleasure from the overall experience, so the idea of a strap-on dildo that actually provided female pleasure has been long-atop my wishlist.

Shop Canada: Interview with Cailey of La Petite Mort

le petit more my tickle trunkcailey le petit more my tickle trunk Late last year, I sat down with Cailey Root, the owner of Toronto’s very own La Petite Mort, to talk about her new store and ask the really hard questions (like whether she’d Fuck, Marry, or Kill the Tantus Rumble).

Review: Doxy Don

Doxy Don Vibrator Anal Toy Review My Tickle Trunk

It was a long, hard battle to get my Doxy Don, and I want to give a specific thank you to Ruby Goodnight of Doxy North America for being persistent and attempting to send me not one, but three Doxy Dons over the course of 4 months. May the two that went MIA find happiness in their freedom.

So needless to say, I had a lot of time to dwell on the arrival of my Don. Every time I revisited the issue with Ruby, I would search out more photos and reviews of the toy, remembering what it was that I had to look forward to. However, looking at the photos and the odd shape of the toy, over time, I found myself looking forward to its arrival less and less. The shape seemed limiting, if not cumbersome, so how could I, as a cis woman, benefit from such a one-use toy?

I’m Not Unhealthy, You’re Just An Asshole.

Body positivity my tickle trunk overweight health fuck you

I’m going to forgo the word picture I normally like to paint as an intro to body positive posts, and just get to the point: my “health” does not give you a free pass to criticize my weight.

Yes, I’m overweight. The only entity who knows this more than I is the waistband of my jeans, so don’t act like you’re the first unique snowflake to notice. You note the weight of myself and others with the tone of judges at a dog show, and when I call you out for fat-shaming, you bring up the socially acceptable, thinly-veiled excuse for being a judgmental twat: “It’s bad for your health.”

Review: We-Vibe Tango

My Tickle Trunk Review We-Vibe Tango Vibrator

“Heeeeeeehehe!” I giggled, holding the We-Vibe Tango in my hand amidst a crowd of people and tugging on my boyfriend’s jacket out of excitement. “Feel this! Can you believe that?” What may have looked like a tiny, spinning bullet in my hand was actually radiating through my arm, and I was mesmerized. My boyfriend walked away like he didn’t know me as I began gushing to Helen, the lovely We-Vibe rep, about how stunned I was with its power.

The We-Vibe Tango is quickly making it’s way up there with the Magic Wand Rechargeable and Pure Wand as a toy that can’t get a bad review, and I thought if anyone could give it a bad review, it would be me. The first time I used it wasn’t that impressive – I struggled for a few minutes, and between that pinpoint tip and such a small shape, I found it difficult to find a way for it to work for me. I’d brought out several toys and dildos to test, and was sadly disappointed when it didn’t rock my world; that’s the purpose of the Tango though, to simply be.

Review: B-Vibe Trio

review b-vibe trio butt plug review

The B-Vibe Trio bore the tragedy of coming into my life around the same time my lust for anal play was at an all-time low. It comes and goes, unfortunately, and the first time I used this, it felt cool but… foreign. I do, however, give it credit for reminding why I love anal play so much, and for reigniting my love of butt stuff.

As it sounds, The B-Vibe Trio sports 3 separate motors within one butt plug (in the tip, middle, and neck), all of which can be operated manually, or with the included handheld remote.

29 Things About Being 29 + Birthday Giveaway!

my tickle trunk birthday giveaway 2016

It’s my birthday! Today I begin the journey to embrace the last year of my 20’s, and prepare myself for the new adventures of my 30’s. I don’t care about the numbers, I truly don’t. I do care how it seems everyone else does, and keeps annoying me with questions like “You’re almost 30! Are you scared?” No. If I had known what a shitshow turning 22 was going to be, I would have been a lot more scared then, so clearly the number doesn’t make a difference.

Anyway, a lot changes in a year, so here are 29 things that I feel changed in my 29th trip around the sun. (a la Hannah Hart)

Review: O-Wand

o-wand vibrator review my tickle trunk

Sometimes a toy gets everything right.

Ergonomic design? Check.
Premium, body-safe materials? Check.
Decent motor? Check.
Beautiful design? Check.
Waterproof? Check.
Included attachment? Check.
Stunning packaging that you still can’t bring yourself to throw out? Check.
I mean for fuck’s sake, it even comes with plugs for every country so you can plug it into the wall wherever you are. On paper, there is literally nothing wrong with this toy!

This becomes all the more frustrating when I encountered the only problem that could mysteriously derail this review: it can’t make me come.

That Crooked Smile

that crooked smile body positivity my tickle trunk

They say that conventional attractiveness is often dictated by how symmetrical your face is, with facial symmetry influencing perceived traits such as beauty, health, and generally good genes. I know I’m not conventionally hot, but if I may say so myself, I’m pretty damn happy with my appearance, and believe me, my face is anything but symmetrical. In photos, my right side is my good side, and I want to set fire to the photos taken from the left; they look nothing like how I see myself, and this is in part to my smile.

Review: Fuze Foreman

fuze foreman dildo review

I feel rather lucky; with the limited selection of uncut dildos on the market today, this will be the second I’ve reviewed in under a year! That said, the Fuze Foreman far from measures up (literally) to the daunting Tantus Uncut #1 we saw earlier this year. In fact, this version might be a better alternative for those who can’t handle the girth and sheer weight of the #1.

It’s rather petite, coming in at an insertable 5.5” and only 1.43” inches around at its widest point, but my favourite quality of this dildo has to be the squish factor. It doesn’t advertise itself as any fancy, realistic silicone, but it really should, because this is even squishier than Tantus’s famous dual density silicone. It’s soft, flexible, and plush enough to feel like the real thing, all without being too soft and unable to hold a shape. I love it.
