Review: MysteryVibe Crescendo

MysteryVibe Crescendo review my tickle trunk

The concept of the Crescendo seemed pretty cool from the get-go, but even from the start, I had my own doubts about how this multipurpose sex toy would be able to satisfy my needs. Nonetheless, I was pleased to hear from MysteryVibe, and my curiosity got the better of me, so now I’m the proud owner of a vibrator that I’ll probably never use again.

Don’t get me wrong – the principle is quite solid; 6 individual motors make up the body of this shape-shifting toy, like the Odo of masturbation. But where others rightfully saw a 100% unisex, pleasure-seeking, all-encompassing revolution in sex aids, I saw a toy that was trying to do too much. The rabbit vibrator is proof that a toy trying to do it all is likely to end up doing nothing, and while the flexible form was indeed intriguing, it was still just a rigid piece of silicone with 6 lacklustre motors instead of one half-decent one.

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). The store is online-based, catering exclusively to Canadians looking for beautiful, body-safe toys without having to go south of the border. She offers a wide selection of curated toys, as well as lingerie, lube, and my favourite – art! Check out La Petite Mort for your Canadian sex toy needs!

Review: Sliquid Silk

sliquid silk review my tickle trunk

By now I’ve done enough Sliquid reviews that you probably get the message – OMFG I LOVE SLIQUID. I was truly lucky to find it early on and not have to endure too many bad lube experiences (with the exception of one later on), and I continue to sing its praises. But I thought I’d talk about WHY I like Sliquid Silk, especially in comparison to other Sliquid variations.

First off, I hold this bottle very close to my heart. Literally. When I spotted the vibrant purple bottle and looked at the price tag, I immediately clutched it to my chest in a primal “back off bitches” stance. See, Come As You Are had THE most bonkers sale last month, so bonkers in fact that I drove all the way back to Toronto for it even though I was visiting my boyfriend in another city. I had no intention on really buying anything, because so many sales are advertised in such a generous way, only to be a disappointing 10% off in reality. But oh was I wrong. Between 30% off ALL sex toys & props, and their clearance bins with savings of up to 90% off, I was happy I made the trip. Come As You Are retails Sliquid in the range of $30, and, guys…

Toxic Lube Ingredients (And On A Related Note, A Quick Review Of Forta Lube)

Toxic lube ingredients forta lubricant u-lube review my tickle trunk

It had happened a few times; my boyfriend and I would be going at it, and it was hot. Then after a couple minutes it was… hot. My vagina; it was washed over with a stinging, burning discomfort that I still can’t accurately describe. Like if you ran a hair dryer over an open flesh wound, or your hands were raw from climbing the monkey bars… in my vagina. It concerned me and made me worry that I might lose all enjoyment in sex, but it didn’t happen every time so I tried to push it out of my mind.

Review: Tantus Tsunami

Review Tantus Tsunami My Tickle Trunk

I bought the Tsunami during one of Gabby’s used (sterilized) toy sales and of course read her review on the item before buying. A decent review, with the singular problem being size – something that she admitted has been an issue in the past.
I’m no size queen, but I’ve never had a problem with toys before and I’m going to have to agree with the majority of reviews I’ve found – it’s just too big! I can fit JUST up to the end of the second-to-final ridge; if I push and don’t want any real stimulation from it.
