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: 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.

Review: Afrodite by Sex Wooden Toys

afrodite dildo by sex wooden toys review my tickle trunk

I’ve never been particularly good with measurements. Throughout my late teens and early twenties, I’m sure men thought I was perfect because my perception of an inch was way off, so needless to say I was easily impressed. I say this because there’s one factor that’s going to very slightly hinder this review, and that factor is size.

It’s the same thing that got me into trouble with my too-big Pure Plug, which I try so hard to love but I’m just not feeling it in return. When Sex Wooden Toys reached out to me, they asked which toy I wanted and what size, so this is no one’s fault but my own, and perhaps in part to a poor public school math education. I chose the large Afrodite from Sex Wooden Toys, thinking I like many other “large” toys, but not taking into account the inflexible material or, y’know, what an inch really looks like. Size Queens can rejoice because DANG she’s a big ‘un, but my vagina is merely a Size Princess In Waiting.

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: OVO E6

ovo e6 rabbit vibrator review my tickle trunk blog

The OVO E6 has a unique feature, in that it’s the first double-ended vibrator that I’ve ever had the experience of owning; it has one end that features the classic rabbit design, while the other is a bit more thick and rounded and features its own vibrator for internal use. For that reason, this review will be split into two chucks to highlight both ends of this dual-purpose vibe…

Rabbit
I’ll be frank – rabbits, more often than not, suck. And I didn’t have a lot of hope for the E6 when I pulled it out of its clean, white box to find the tiniest, most confusing rabbit layout I could have imagined. The arms have only an inch of difference in length; they’re shockingly thin, flat, and short. I may not be a typical size queen, but I do have some expectations when it comes to toys, and that expectation is that I won’t have ample room to jiggle the toy around inside me. I immediately couldn’t imagine the stimulation to be particularly exciting.

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: B Swish Bcute Pearl + Bfilled Vibrating Plug

Bswish Bcute Classic Pearl review my tickle trunk

I never know what to do with little toys like this – too small to do much for insertion, but bigger than a simple bullet, so the size seems wasteful on a tiny little clitoris. I decided that the B Swish Bcute Pearl vibe was an external-use toy, but it wouldn’t stop me from giving it a go elsewhere!

Now, I’m going to do another mini review within this one, and mention that I have another B Swish toy – the Bfilled Vibrating Plug. I scored this for $5 at the previously mentioned Come As You Are annual sale (RIP), and it was my first, highly coveted vibrating plug. It’s a big one too, at 2.5” girth – they don’t call it Bfilled for nothing!

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.
