Review: FemmeFunn Ultra Bullet

FemmeFunn Ultra Bullet Vibrator in purple with a pink button

The market for ultra-powered bullets has never been more lively; it seems like the best toy you can make these days comes in a compact package with the power of an orangutan and the battery life of clock. The now-classic We-Vibe Tango seemed like the greatest early contender in its field for size, price, and power… but can it be out-done?

Not yet.

For starters, the FemmeFunn Bullet is very flexible compared to the rigid Tango – great for some, not so great for others. I for one like firmness so that I can mash down on my clit and not have to chase after the toy. The hard plastic of the Tango is good for this, but I appreciate the less pinpoint tip of FemmeFunn for those who may prefer a more rounded shape. That’s not to say it makes it any less pinpoint in sensation though; thanks to its flexible shape, it means there’s no escaping the direct power that eliminates from the tip of this bullet, and I for once can find it a bit much when partnered with a buzzier motor.

Review: Satisfy Wand by Please

Satisfy wand vibrator on bed by my tickle trunk

Talking about this wand is weird, as was naming this review. Calling it “Please Satisfy” sounds like a desperate plea for when you’re so sick of trying out bad toys that you just want this one to be different. Don’t worry; this isn’t the case.

I’ve been trying to find the words to describe this wand for a while. I first learned about the Satisfy wand by Canadian company Please while watching one of my favourite cam girls, later finding the exact toy on Come As You Are. I’m always consistently impressed by (most) wands, so I make it my mission to try as many wands of any size as I can. The fact that a Canadian company was a part of it? Especially from a Canadian brand.

Review: Partner Plus Couples Toy

Satisfyer Partner Plus Couples Toy Review My Tickle Trunk

Stick to your day job, Satisfyer.

A while ago I reviewed Satisfyer’s pioneering sex toy, the Satisfyer Pro 2, and until recently it ranked in my top sex toys (it was knocked out of top spot by one of its siblings – more on that in future reviews). They’ve since become a leading name is the market of air-based stimulators, and for very good reason; the unique sensation combined with an accessible price point gives them every competitive edge they could ask for. However, their venture into couple’s vibrators (of which I am hoping is a brief one) has not been nearly as triumphant. However, this isn’t really marketed as a Satisfyer toy, which is why I won’t refer to it as such; I refuse to tarnish that name, and it seems they’ve been smart enough to separate themselves from this effort.

Review: Big Oh! Box Q4 2016

big oh! box sex toy subscription my tickle trunk review

This review is so late that I’m truly ashamed, so a big shout out to Big Oh! Box for being patient with me and not throwing me into the fires of hell. Obviously you can’t get this specific box anymore, but much like my previous reviews of Big Oh!, I more aim to provide an idea of their selection and quality than I do to push certain products. That said, I’m going to do this a bit more in a review-style format, because I have feelings on certain products.

As mentioned before, the boxes seem to come with a built-in theme of the quarter, and this quarter’s theme was something I haven’t had much of a chance to explore: sensation play. It was packed in its usual plain black box with branded interior – which my cat once again fell in love with – and wrapped in their trademark red tissue paper. I haven’t subscribed to a subscription box for a while, but I really never get tired of feeling like I’m opening a present, which is a unique experience that Big Oh! Box continually provides over other guys.

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: 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: 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.
