Review: Vixen Mustang

Vixen Mustang silicone dildo for a review on my tickle trunk

Remember the Tantus Adam? Remember how it was my gold standard in dildos and nothing would ever get better than that?

Hello, Vixen. It’s no secret that every sex blogger in the history of ever is a big supporter of Vixen Creations and touts the virtues of their dual-density silicone dildos. I read about Vixen for years, skeptical of how good a dildo could really be and thinking that it was all just hyperbole. But this isn’t just another superb adult brand… this is a game changer. My Tantus Uncut was best known for first-rate squish, and the Captain by Pleasure Works was a big leap in realism, but none of them hold a candle to Vixen.

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.

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?

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: Magic Wand Rechargeable

magic wand rechargeable review my tickle trunk

This ranks up there with the Pure Wand as another toy that needs no introduction, nor any further fanfare, but too bad. This toy is too important to my collection to not be writing about it. It’s commonly known as the relative to its predecessor, the Hitachi Magic Wand “back massager”, only now sporting a body-safe silicone head, more intensity options, vibrating patterns, and of course – it is now rechargeable and cordless.

I’ve used a mains-powered wand only once before, and the cord was surprisingly unruly. Where did it go during sex? Under me? Over me? To the side? I hadn’t expected to be that strongly opinionated about something as simple as an electric cord, but when it came time to invest in a proper wand vibrator, I did find myself leaning in the direction of cordless (only in part because my landlord took 2 years to fix the short-circuiting outlet beside my bed).

Review: Fun Factory Stronic Eins

Fun Factory Stronic Eins review my tickle trunk

I’m a lazy person, and any lazy person will admit to once or twice giving up the prospect of masturbating simply because it’s too much effort. The Fun Factory Stronic Eins is the lazy fuck’s best friend, and something you really have to experience for yourself.

This… vibrator? Dildo? I don’t know, but this toy is COOL (yes, it’s actually a pulsator, but that may not be clear unless you’re familiar with the company). Magnets move back and forth within the Stronic to create a thrusting motion that gives you 1-2 inches worth of hands-free thrust that provides the type of stimulation you would typically get from using a dildo. I held it for what must have been hours, marvelling at the technology as it wobbled back and forth on the palm of my hand. I would show my boyfriend how COOL it was – he took it as a hint that we should use it, but I was more in awe of this amazing piece of technology. Thanks to the sexiest use of magnets you’ll likely ever encounter, this thing holds a bit of weight at 1.2 pounds, and it will also pick up your bobby pins and quarters when you take it on a walk for #DildosDayOut.

Review: Njoy Pure Wand + A Word On Squirting

Njoy Pure Wand review + Squirting my tickle trunk

The Pure Wand needs no introduction – you know it, and if you’re like me, you’re one of the thousands who rushed to buy it after reading a “gushing” review from your favourite long-time blogger. Hell, the last thing the internet needs is yet another glowing review of the Pure Wand, but if you don’t like it, then hey, get your own blog.

I bought mine about 6 months back, when I found myself with some scraps of disposable income and a lust to know more about this magical chunk of steel. I was giddy as I carried it home from Come As You Are, feeling the heft of such a small yet sturdy item as it tired my arm while waiting (and waiting) for the streetcar. I grinned ear-to-ear as no one suspected that my plain paper bag contained a simple, stunning dildo; one unlike they’d ever seen before.

Review: The Captain By Pleasure Works

Review: Pleasure Works The Captain my tickle trunk dildo

The Captain makes me greedy. It makes me want more. It’s so thick and so realistic that it takes my “size doesn’t matter” demeanour and replaces it with “MOAR COCK PLZ”

The Captain is made with Firm Core Silicone from Pleasure Works, consisting of a very firm centre shaft with a very soft, supple coating of premium silicone over top. The overall shape of the dildo is very firm, with not much give or bend to it, but the outer coating provides the perfect amount of give to make this THE most realistic feeling dildo I’ve ever had. The Tantus Uncut #1 takes the prize for most realistic in appearance and detail, but close my eyes and put this in my hand, and the soft, clammy exterior has me fooled.

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.

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.
