Review: California Exotics Inspire Remote Teaser

California Exotics Inspire Teaser my tickle trunk review

I keep reading great reviews of the Cal Exotics Inspire line, but obviously I just chose the wrong products, because for fuck’s sake, this thing is bad. If you’re in a hurry, I’ll save you a couple paragraphs: a dying housefly could fall into my pants and buzz away in its last moments of life and it would be about as pleasant as the Inspire Teaser.

Much like I mentioned with the Inspire Wand, it just looks so pretty, and its “travel & tease”-friendly demeanour intrigued me. My man has always been interested in a panty-play toy that we could sneak around with in public, but he’s never even seen this thing, because it doesn’t work.

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.

Review: Satisfyer Pro 2

my tickle trunk satisfyer pro 2 review

I laid back on the couch, panting, holding the Satisfyer Pro 2 in my hand, trying make sense of what the hell had just happened.

When I first got the Satisfyer Pro 2 (which I’m referring to as the Satisfyer from now on for simplicity’s sake), I tried it about half a dozen times without success; the sensation was too intense, too pinpoint, even on the lowest setting (if I’m honest, the 11 settings didn’t seem to vary TOO much). I’d enjoy it for a few seconds, work myself up a bit, then find my entire vulva itchy and overloaded with such a weird tickle and have to remove it. I was feeling pretty bummed that my clitoris wasn’t down with the newest revolution in clitoral pleasure; I wanted so much to like it!

Review: OVO S1 Lay-On Vibrator

ovo s1 lay-on vibrator review my tickle trunk

The OVO S1 is a lay-on vibrator, and the first I’ve ever owned. I was really excited because I had two thoughts when I first heard about the existence of lay-on vibrators:

  1. “Wait. I’m not the only one who sometimes masturbates while laying on my stomach?”
  2. “There are vibrators JUST for that? I need one!”

From what I can tell, it’s the select few who are able to jack off face-down, and I get it. This particular position stems from my childhood when I didn’t know what I was doing or why lying on my hands down there felt good. As I got older, I knew what I was doing, but I knew it was not how women touched themselves in mainstream media, so I thought I was weird. Just seeing the existence of a lay-on vibrator confirmed that I wasn’t alone, and I wanted to know if this style would actually enhance this position of masturbation.

Review: Tantus Flex

tantus flex dildo review my tickle trunk

It comes as no surprise to regular readers that DP is my dream fantasy. But it comes as a surprise to me that when it comes to body-safe toys, DP options are few and far between, and unfortunately after trying out the Flex, I’m still left empty in the viable DP toys category.

I’ll jump to the main problem I had with Flex: the anal beads are… distracting. They’re just so small yet perfectly spaced so that I have to feel every single one whether I want to or not. If I want to thrust the dildo, I’m left with no choice but to thrust the beads as well, and with each little * boop boop boop * going in and out of me, it takes away from the rest of the experience and keeps an ongoing dialogue in my brain of “there’s something going in my butt, there’s something going in my butt…”

Review: California Exotics Inspire Ultimate Wand

california exotics inspire ultimate vibrating wand review my tickle trunk

Oh, California Exotics. One of my first reviews was of the Entice Hope – a little egg vibe by CalExotics – and it wasn’t so bad, but I did feel like the company was capable of more in their products. I saw no reason why they couldn’t make good toys, and while the Entice Hope was fine, it’s the highest praise I’ve been able to give them so far. I’m kind of throwing up my hands at this point.

The Inspire line by California Exotics seemed different. Everything is covered in a pastel pink layer of satin-finish silicone, and proceeds from these products are donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer. The variety within this line toys was intriguing, including a teaser, an arouser, and even a breast massager – all products that are meant to evoke arousal and therapy following the trauma of breast cancer. One of my chosen products was the Ultimate Wand, and as someone who’s constantly on the journey to find a good, compact wand, I was excited by its appearance and hopeful of its potential.

Review: Pebble by Ooh Je Joue

my tickle trunk review pebble motor ooh je joue

I’m going through a clit vibe phase. Not sure why I’m calling it a phase, since the first 27 years of my life saw only clit-based orgasms, but I’ve decided that my ass and vagina have seen a lot of action lately – the bean gets a turn. Which is why when I was presented the option to try a shape from Ooh Je Joue’s interchangeable, rechargeable line of silicone shapes & vibrators, the Pebble seemed like a natural choice.

It comes in what’s probably the most adorable yet minimal packaging I’ve seen for a sex toy. I love the vivid colours, the individual bags, and the cheeky little lips that add a sexy but fun tone to the simple toys. Normally I’d never waste your time by talking about something you’re probably going to throw away, but it really was beautiful.

Review: Big Oh! Box + Booty Box

my tickle trunk review big oh! box booty subscription

Big Oh! Box has thrown their hat into the adult subscription box game and they’ve done so with class and diverse, sex-positive options. In their subscription service, you will have the choice between “With Oh! Friend” and “Sol-Oh!” – boxes tailored for partnered and individual use, respectively. Following this selection, you get to customize your box by choosing your pleasure; dual stimulation, vibrator, back door, or male stroker – I really love their level of customization, and not restricting it to a specific gender.

Review: Blush Villain Audre

my tickle trunk blush villain audre review

Given the slew of glowing reviews that Audre by Blush Novelties has collected, I’m surprised with my level of disappointment that I have to write something even less than immaculate.

It was a beauty. I had of course seen photos of the Parisian-style packaging that embraced the clean, soft silicone form (primarily because mine took a month to ship). Vibrating G-spot toys may not be my drug of choice these days, but I do love a good one to dabble with once in a while, and I can’t deny that with the right clitoral stimulation, they get the job done.

Review: Lovehoney Desire Rechargeable Clitoral Vibe

my tickle trunk lovehoney desire clitoral vibe review

I’ve wanted a new clit vibe for years, ever since I sent my LELO Lily for warranty repairs and UPS lost it on its return trip (surprise!). So many vibrators marketed for clitoral use are bullet based, and I’m sorry but that’s cheating; bullets do so little for me, especially if I’m doing clit-only stimulation. Don’t piss on my leg and tell me it’s raining, or give me pill-sized batteries and call it a sex toy.

I prefer my clit vibes to be “clit shaped” in the sense that it’s molded to conform to the contours of the vulva and pelvic bone around your clitoris. See, sometimes I’ll masturbate a little weird; I’ll do it standing up, leaning forward over a dresser or counter, allowing my body weight to fall onto my right hand in an effort to get amazing pressure. This is how I started masturbating, and strangeness be damned, I can’t knock the 30-seconds-or-it’s-free orgasm guarantee that this method seems to uphold. So when I say I want a clit vibe, I mean that I was something that will fit perfectly into a cupped hand, provide moderate pinpoint pressure, and buzz its little heart out as I bear down with the pressure of my body weight. My Lily was great for this…
