With Christmas right around the corner there’s no better time to give the gift of pleasure than now. I know when I was growing up – and even now – there was a focus during the holiday season on tangible, visible gifts. A pearl necklace, a ceramic vase, a blender (let me tell you how well that latter relationship worked out…). Don’t get me wrong; I’m not at all opposed to sporting a new 2-carat on my finger, and I’m willing to bet most ladies in my position would feel the same.
But there’s an often-overlooked portion of gifts that can make a woman happier than a new set of china or (another) Vera Bradley – the gift of pleasure and relaxation.
Now, to be fair I’m somewhat partial to the kind of pleasure that can be found
I can browse with the best of them. I’m always looking for the next best invention in the land of vibrators so I keep my eyes and ears open. That’s how I heard about my favorite vibrator (the LELO Liv 2 – review here) and how I’ve discovered some other in my stash (like the Rianne S Matryoshka and the LELO Ida). As such I’m constantly checking around sites like Adam and Eve and with my suppliers to see what’s out there that’s new in the world.
On one of my searches this week I came across a disturbing trend – imitation vibrators. I was searching on a couple of brand names to see what’s out there and found sites selling “Lelo style” vibrators. To put that in context (and because I’m still a car girl…forever) that’s like asking a sales person for a Jag and having him
I’m not a person who avidly follows medical news. I hear about the occasional breakthrough and follow a few blogs on nutrition and fitness, but that’s about it.
Except when it comes to sexual health, anyway – in which case I’m all over it. I first got turned on to it when a friend of mine told me she stopped using vibrators because they weren’t healthy for you. I about fell out of my skin; this was going to put a kink (or remove one, as the case may be) in my sex life. I’ve been a big fan of vibrators since I figured out how to use them effectively (I love it when my boyfriend says “aren’t they just plug-and-play?”), so if doctors had turned out some science that says they’re hazardous to my health I was going to have to figure out how I was
When OhMiBod came out with the Freestyle G Spot vibrator I couldn’t wait to try it. I love music and as you can probably imagine I’m a fan of vibrators, as well, so being able to combine the two – in a rechargeable, wireless manner – was pretty damn awesome. I was not disappointed.
If you want to draw a parallel the Freestyle G is to a traditional vibrator what a Mac is to a PC. It’s sleek (it has a velvety feel), comes packaged in a classy box and gives you features you don’t expect to find on the other sex toys you’re used to using.
Before I go any further
(note: the We-Vibe 3 is the latest in the We-Vibe line; click here to read that review)
To be fair, I tried the We-Vibe 3 before the -2 so this review is somewhat biased in that respect. It’s like driving a 2013 Camaro and then going back to a 2010 – it’s still a Camaro but it’s just not quite as good.
While lacking the power of the We-Vibe 3 as well as the wireless remote, the We-Vibe 2 is still a great couples massager. If you’re after a lower-priced vibrator you can use solo or while having sex this is certainly a solid option. Although I’d strongly suggest considering the -3 the -2 is a good investment.
I’m glad I got over the notion that vibrators were just a replacement for a partner. Otherwise I’d never have run across the We-Vibe line of couples vibrators. And let me tell you, if you haven’t involved vibrators when you’re enjoying some intimate time with your partner you’re missing out.
The We-Vibe 3 is a c-shaped vibrator designed to be used either with a partner or solo (“solo” with either partner, incidentally, although it’s really designed for women in that respect). Basically you slide the smaller end inside (the lower side in the picture) to tickle your G-spot while the larger end (on top) presses right on top of your clit. Fire up the motors (either manually on the larger tip or via the remote) and
I’m not a shy girl, but I generally don’t prefer the kind of attention I get when guys see one of my vibrators in my purse while they’re searching it at ballgames, clubs or airports. That’s one of the biggest reasons I love the Discretion Micro compact – it looks just like a compact and nobody’s the wiser.
It’s not the most powerful but when I’m lying out at the pool or need a release at the club there’s no better answer. It’s got three variable speeds and although the Micro has a three-foot long cord that retracts into the body I’ve never used even half that length; typically I’m just resting the body on my leg or the counter while I use the egg.
The egg is
When you’re serious about wanting a true luxury car you purchase a Lincoln or a Cadillac or a Jaguar. You expect to melt into the soft upholstery, appreciate the gentle curves of the auto and feel – but not hear – the engine whisk you to your destination. Most people aren’t willing to pay the modest premium over a run-of-the-mill sedan for any other reason. Not everyone is made for a luxury car and that’s OK; everyone has their own style, tastes and desires.
The same applies when with vibrators. Some women are content with a single-speed piece of plastic for $15 while others are after more of the luxury experience – they want to be melted into, to appreciate the gentle curves of their assistant and feel (but not hear) every vibration. If you fall into the latter category like I do
