When I was told that I would be receiving the Realm Lycan, I had no idea what I was in for. This toy is…frightening, in the best ways possible. Now, if I could just get my hands on the the Realm Rougarou Lock-On Werewolf Handle…then we’d be in business!
The Realm series by Blush Novelties is slowly becoming my absolute favorite collection. While I may only have this, the Lycan, and the Silver Bullet right now, I fully intend on expanding my collection. I am so impressed with the quality and the creativeness that comes from them.
The total length of this beast is 10 and half inches with an insertable length of 8 inches and a width of 2 inches (at the base!). It’s girthy and magnificent! It’s also 100% body safe being made of platinum cured silicone. Plus it’s not super hard silicone, or super floppy, so it’s relatively easy to control.
When using it, the first thing you’ll definitely notice is that the head it HUGE. It’s not for beginners and even I had a rough time. However, once it got in there, the ridge of the head hit my g-spot in such a way that I ended up squirting all over the place! I was shocked, because usually I have to be orgasming to do that….but apparently not.
Besides being totally badass, the Lycan is also lock on compatible. That means that any toy with a ‘vac-u-lock’ attachment or adapter can be used with this. That opens you up to a world of fun. It’s also one of the main reasons I want the Werewolf Handle, because come on, that would be SO cool!
My review might be glowing but there are definitely a couple of negatives. I will say that the beefiness of the Lycan can also be a hinderance. It’s VERY heavy, so without a base or an attachment, you might have a hard time holding it while in use. Also, yes, it’s beautiful and extremely detailed…but that’s also a problem. After use, it’s pretty difficult to clean out all the nooks and crannies.
In the end, I am very impressed with the Lycan. It’s a statement piece, it definitely fits in with my horror/goth aesthetic, and it’s VERY pleasurable. It’s not an easy toy, so be warned, but with enough lube and foreplay, anything is possible.

The Stardust Charm vibrator by NS Novelties is one of those toys that’s good in theory, but fails in the execution. Yes, it’s pretty, yes, it’s powerful, but where does it lack? Let’s find out.
I tried the Stardust Charm like any other vibrator. I charged it, turned it on, played with the settings, but the one thing that was different was how confused I was. The vibrations weren’t reaching the end that goes against the body. Yet the where the vibrations originated from, they were out of control.
If you look at the design, the ‘handle’, which is the silicone part, is smaller than the glass portion, which is the end that is supposed to go against and/or inside your body. Upon turning it on, you immediately feel exactly where the motor is…in the handle. Which would normally be fine, but it almost instantly made my hand go numb AND when I felt the end of the glass part, there was nothing but a small buzz emanating from it. This was very frustrating.
My guess, is that the crystal pieces take the vibration and use it for their own momentum, OR maybe the glass surrounding them is too thick. Either way, there is NO way I would every be able to get off using it the way it was intended.
That lead to some experimentation.
Like I mentioned before, almost ALL of the vibration power was staying in the silicone handle. So, I went on to try the toy like that. I flipped it over, using the glass as the handle, and surprisingly it was very effective. The vibrations are the right amount of rumbly, holding it by the longer end turned it into a makeshift wand type toy, it was actually quite pleasant.
Using the Charm in this manner makes things just as difficult though. Now I was holding it by a glass piece, which means that any amount of liquid that gets on my fingers or the piece itself makes things very slippery. Also, I was now using the end with the charger and the buttons against my body, so adjusting the settings was…interesting.
Overall, I would probably not recommend the Stardust Charm. While it’s pleasing to look at, that’s about all the pleasure you’ll be getting from it. I would honestly save a couple bucks and go with the Silver Bullet if you were going to go with a large vibe.
If you use the silicone side as the vibe, its wonderful. You hold on to the glass portion as if it is a wand, which makes use on all body types very easy.
If you use the glass portion as the vibe, it’s awful. The vibrations are in the silicone end, so ALL the vibrations are there, where your hand is, and NONE of the vibrations reach the end of the glass side.

The Naughty Bits collection from CalExotics is really adorable. Every piece in the collection is fun and affordable. There are a few pieces that don’t live up to the ‘body safe’ standard that you’re used to from this blog, but the Oh My G-Spot is not one of those pieces. It’s so pretty and this is a toy that will be an excellent addition to your collection, and on display on your nightstand (if you can find the batteries to use it!)
The Oh My G-Spot is made of smooth ABS plastic with a silicone power button. There is also a silicone ring around the screw cap that makes it 100% waterproof. It takes 2 C batteries and lasts quite a long time. There are 10 vibration patterns and, what’s really cool, is it has a memory, so if you find a pattern that you LOVE, it will always remember where you left off, so you don’t have to go hunting again.
I actually really love this toy. It’s big, girthy, and the vibrations are the absolute right amount of rumbly. The motor is placed right at the tip so the vibrations get where you need them to go. Also, a lovely little bonus is, because of the toys size and material, the vibrations don’t really reach the base where you hold on, so your hand won’t go numb.
Now to the fun part, the bitching. As I mentioned before, the Oh My G-Spot takes 2 C batteries. What the hell uses C batteries anymore? I went to 2 different Targets and neither of them carried these batteries. I’m lucky that my rechargeable battery set had C adapters, otherwise I literally would not have been able to test this it. That being said, it does actually say on the instructions to not use rechargeable batteries, for some reason, but I only used them the once, and everything was fine.
Besides the battery issue, the Oh My G-Spot is a really well made, cute toy. The vibrations are amazing for a $33 toy and the fact that it’s waterproof as well as having an awesome selection of rumbly patterns makes this a very excellent buy. For anyone looking for a beautiful, cheap, body safe g spot toy, this one is for you!

The Zumio S is like the younger sibling of the Zumio E and X. It’s much less intense, much more rumbly, and the larger silicone tip makes this lady’s clit VERY happy. This review is literally going to be short and sweet. I have absolutely no negatives about it.
The Zumio S is very similar to the E and the X. The travel cap and the base are made of ABS plastic, the mid section is made of a body safe silicone, and this Zumio has a short, flexible silicone stem. This version has the circular rotation tip movements, like the X. It is fully submersible due to the fact that it has a wireless charger. It takes approximately 2 hours to full charge and it lasts for ages. Use that time to test the 8 intensity patterns to see what works for you.
I love this toy so so much. Like I mentioned at the beginning, I have absolutely no negatives to say about the S. It’s quiet, it has a thick stem, the battery life is wonderful, and gets me off. That last detail is the part I love the most. Anything that gets me off with an orgasm that I actually enjoy is a winner in my book.
I would highly recommend the Zumio S to anyone who is interested in pinpoint stimulation toys and who are interested in Zumio. It’s a great starter toy from them because it’s not too intense and give you a great idea of what kinds of stimulation you love. The Zumio S is definitely my favorite Zumio product (so far…).
When I received the Zumio E I was very hesitant. After reviewing the Zumio X, I thought, maybe the Zumio products just aren’t for me. I mean, I’ve tried and loved so many other pinpoint stimulation toys, maybe I just didn’t need to be so fancy with it. Well, I was proven wrong. I do need to be a fancy bitch.
The Zumio E is basically the same as the original Zumio in build. The travel cap and the base are made of ABS plastic, the mid section is made of a body safe silicone, and this Zumio has a sturdy metal stem. The elliptical rotation has been added to this version and it’s amazing in this design. It is fully submersible due to the fact that it has a wireless charger. It takes approximately 2 hours to full charge but lasts freaking forever! Use that time to test the 8 intensity patterns to see what works for you.
The Zumio E stem is fantastic! Unlike the previous models, it is made of a solid metal, so the sensation is incredible. The shape has been improved as well. Now the stem has more of a curve AND the way that the end comes to a ‘paddle’ is actually the best thing I have experienced. Plus the shape of the stem give your nipples a really fun ride. You can move it around from the flat side to the slim edge to give wildly different sensations.
I have mentioned before that I have a really hard time having an orgasm, but not anymore…mostly. I have discovered that I really enjoy having my clit stroked from the very base up to the tip. With the paddle shape of the E, I am able to do that with EASE. Also, because it’s flat and not rounded, it doesn’t do as much slipping around, so I can get those really intense, concentrated strokes going.
There is really not much negative to say about the E. It’s a tad loud, but not nearly as loud as the X. Besides that, it’s almost the perfect toy. It’s sleek, submersible, ergonomic (light, easy buttons, etc), and it gives even the most complicated person (me), an incredible orgasm.
I would absolutely recommend the Zumio E to anyone who enjoys an incredibly intense and quick orgasm. It’s seriously one of the best toys I have ever experienced. While the price is a little steep, I ASSURE you it is worth it. You will get many a pleasure from this wonderful toy.
I am in love with the design of the Romp line of toys. They’re all bright and cheery as well as pretty unique builds. It’s like the ‘cool and hip’ brand of sex toys. For the price and quality, you’re sure to want to try the whole, wonderful line! PLUS every toy comes with an adorable set of stickers and a really cool mini poster!
The Romp Beat is made of a silky smooth, body safe silicone, with an ABS plastic base. The whole toy is 6 inches, which is the perfect size (in my opinion!). It is rechargeable via pronged usb charger. Charge time is about 90 minutes with a usable time of between 90-120 minutes on the lowest setting. There are 6 vibration modes and 4 vibration patterns which you switch through by the single power button on the bottom. The toy is also completely waterproof, so you can use it during water fun!
The overall design of the Beat is so fun and unique. I absolutely love the bright colors and the really creative pattern they used on the main body design. The whole toy is super simple to use. There’s one button and one recharge plug, that’s it. The size is perfect and it’s actually quite quiet. Being discreet with this toy will not be an issue.
Unfortunately there isn’t much to say about it. It doesn’t really stand out vibration wise. While the colors are bright and the design is so fun, the mechanics are just average. Quality isn’t an issue due to the fact that it’s created by WowTech who makes Womanizer and WeVibe, but the Beat is just…ok. My major issue with it overall is that the vibrations travel through the whole toy, making the base difficult to hold onto for extended periods of time.
While I had some issues with the Beat, I would still recommend this toy to anyone. It’s only $25 and for that price you’ll be hard pressed to find a better quality toy. It’s a great toy for those just starting out or those of you who need a cheap, on the go toy.

I’ve been wanting to expand my ‘pretty’ dildo collection and when Hankey’s Toys agreed to collaborate with me on a review, I was THRILLED. Not only did they give me their Alien Breeder dildo, but they also made it with custom colors! I am officially obsessed with this company. Hankey’s Toy’s is definitely going to be my go to for all my future anal training needs.
This highly textured xeno themed toy is made of a very soft silicone. If you don’t like soft toys, however, you can choose their medium firm option. I got the medium size, which is a total of 10.62 inches with an insertable length of 9.37 inches and a circumference of 8.75 (at the widest spot). This is a beastly toy. They actually warned me when choosing a toy that their toys are bigger than you’d expect. That’s quite the understatement.
I tried this toy for the first time on my OnlyFans and let me tell you, the look on my face when I put it inside me was wonderful. In the end I was only able to push it in to the beginning of the hump/knot in the middle, but what I could fit was…lovely. There were many a gasp and ‘oh, fucks!’.
One of the sides is completely smooth (similar to the Xenomorph head) and the other side is extremely textured. The attention to detail is incredible. All the little ‘vertebrae’ along the front and the sides created a wonderful sensation, and the small design at the back (see below) is engineered perfectly! When you swing the toy around, the little ridges contract and expand with the motions. When I noticed that I geeked out a little.
I was a bit worried that with all of the intricate details, it would be hard to clean, but that turned out not to be the case. Since the silicone I got is so soft I was easily able to use my toy cleaner to get in all the little spots. If you use a foaming cleaner you can really see it get into the little spaces, but using a non foaming cleaner I would recommend letting it all sit on the toy for a few moments, just in case.
After doing quite a bit of research and social media hunting on Hankey’s Toys, I started noticing an ‘anal’ trend. It seems like most of the toys (understandably so) are used for anal play. Not only is the size a challenge for vaginal penetration, but the base is also perfectly formed for that use, being thick and flared. I have yet to climb that mountain but I am VERY excited to. The textures and the lump…yummy!
I will absolutely be working with and/or buying more products from Hankey’s Toys in the future. I am in love with their attention to detail and the quality of their products. Just remember, these toys are for size queens. Hankey’s doesn’t do anything small.
I love supporting smaller sexual wellness companies so when I got the opportunity to test the Phix Puckish, I was pretty exited. Its an adorable, discreet toy that is great for newbies and pros alike. Plus, like I’ve said before, I’m a sucker for nice packaging, and this toy comes with that, plus some.
The Puckish is made of a silky smooth silicone with a nice ABS plastic gold accent. It is USB rechargeable, which takes about 90 minutes, and the battery apparently lasts up to 6 hours, but I’m sure that entirely dependent on intensity. Speaking of, it has 3 intensity modes on the basic vibration, but it has 12 patterns overall. It is waterproof so washing it and using it in the shower is easy peasy.
I really enjoy the size of the Puckish. It’s only about 7 inches long, with an insertable length of approximately 5 inches. I also love where the motor is located. It’s right at the end, so all g-spot stimulation gets hit with the power and vibrations you need. I also used it as a clitoral vibe and that was pretty nice. Plus, the buttons are really easy to push, which can be both a positive and negative for some people.
The negatives are pretty…negative. The buttons I mentioned before are almost too easy to push and in an awful location for someone with larger hands. The power button is an easy one push on/off and I managed to do that more than once during my testing.
The design of the shaft is also pretty bad. The description says flexible, but I’m used to a nice wiggle or squish, not a full on bend in half. That was definitely something I was concerned with during play. It seemed like there just wasn’t enough support through the middle. You’ll be fine if you’re relatively gentle with it, though.
The vibrations are very powerful and I love it! Unfortunately they are a bit on the buzzy side for me, and might be for others as well. The various patterns are really nice and strong, so finding a pattern that you like shouldn’t be hard. I also found it hard to hold onto after a while, as the vibrations traveled into the grip.
The price of the Puckish is $49, which I feel is too high for this toy. I’ve had much nicer toys in the $30 range. The Puckish is fairly average and the quality is just ok. I love that it’s body safe, water proof, and that it has a really long battery life, but in reality it’s just a glorified dildo.
I was sent the Puckish for free by Phix in exchange for my honest review. If you wish for me to review one or more of your products, contact me! I would love to hear from you!
Cleanliness is next to godliness, and when it comes to keeping your sex toys clean, it is an act of god. A mandatory exercise! Because no matter how much pleasure you derive from it, the toy needs to be squeaky clean and ready to use on the go!
So how do we go ahead and keep them clean and sparkling? This has been a question on our minds for a long time. Please remember, just water will not do, that dildo needs to be germ-free before it touches your nerves. The reason is plain and simple- our bodies, no matter how incredible they are, are a hive for the germs.
Be it the tongue or the vagina, they provide not just the moment of madness but plenty of microorganisms too. While that doesn’t mean the body is a bag full of dirt, the possibility of a bacterial buildup on the toys is for real.
The benefit of regularly cleaning the toys are manifold, it keeps them well serviced and hence the longevity. When they are serviced well, their performance will speak for itself. No woman would want her best rabbit vibrator shut off in the middle of a climax. The idea is to be as careful as possible. While you may want the sex to be dirty, you surely will not want the toys to be dirty too.
The ideal routine is to wash them before every use as well as after the use. Every sex toy comes with cleaning instructions and that needs to be followed. Also, the cleaning instructions vary with the material.
What Cleans What and How?
If it is made of silicone, glass, or wood and has a motor attached to it, the best way to get rid of those pestering microbes is with an antibacterial soap. After you have washed it well, wipe it clean with a dry cloth.
If it’s silicone, stainless steel, or stone and does not have a motor attached to it, hot water does the trick. Place them under hot water for a full 10 minutes and the results would be fruitful. One can run it through the dishwater too without even need of the soap. The steam will take care of the germs.
Leather gives you pleasure. However, it is also an exotic material and needs a lot of attention. The product needs to be wiped with a damp cloth soaked in soap. One can also use a leather cleaner. Friendly advice, never soak the leather. It will lose its texture and softness forever. After it has been cleaned, use a leather conditioner to recondition it. Leather toys have metal parts attached to it. To protect them from rusting, use nail polish. One cleaning hack that has never failed.
However, probably the best way to clean your sex toys are special toy cleaning products, but also not all of them. Antibacterial soaps as well as alcohol that can be found in many sex toy cleaning products can dry out your sex toy. When buying a sex toy cleaner, you should keep an eye on several ingredients. We recommend avoiding alcohol, triclosan, parabens and glycerine as those are harsh chemicals and can be harmful to your body.
In case you’re wondering which one is a good choice, here’s one – Intimate Earth Green Foaming Toy Cleaner, sold by MedAmour. And not only are the ingredients great, but this cleaner does a great job with silicone, glass and stainless steel toys.
Why the fuss?
Sex toys are primarily tools that will be used over the human body and some, a few inches inside. That makes them high precision tools of sorts. Pun apart, before buying a sex toy, remember to check how body safe is it. Or whether the material that has been used to build these toys are safe for the human body.
Materials like jelly, Cyberskin, vinyl and rubber should best be avoided, they are porous and generally difficult to maintain. Porous materials have pockets within their structure that can collect body fluids, which is a conducive environment for germs. That is why, non-porous objects are easy to maintain, and hence they last longer too.
Should you use toys made of said materials, we recommend using condoms. Not only are they almost impossible to clean, but materials like vinyl and rubber can contain dangerous chemicals (phthalates) which are dangerous for your skin. So the best you can do is to stay away.
Nothing works better than boiling. Simply insert the toys into a mug of boiling water and let it take care of all the germs that. Be careful of some toys though. And this is important for the ones which have a motor attached to it, check whether it is detachable. If yes, the battle is won. Separate, splash the part minus the motor into hot water. Take it out and wipe it clean.
Lovemaking is a pleasurable experience and a memorable one too, if everything planned stays on course. However, safety trumps all, and with our how to keep sex toys clean advisory, you can go one notch up and turn it harder.

When I heard/saw that Sweet Vibrations was coming out with a wand, needless to say, I was ecstatic. After reviewing their Perfect Match and Tulips, I expected nothing but the best out of the Charmed. Unfortunately, that excitement was cut short as soon as I turned it on.
The Charmed is made of body safe, medical grade silicone. It is rechargeable vis magnetic USB which means it’s 100% waterproof. It takes approximately 90 minutes to charge and lasts a maximum of 120 minutes, depending on the intensity levels. There are 4 pattern settings and 4 intensity levels which can be navigated by the 3 buttons. One side of the wand head is smooth and round for the classic ‘wand’ feel, and the other side has a never-before-seen soft, silicone fin.
The positives can be summed up fairly quickly. The Charmed is the perfect size. The smooth head side is wonderful and smooth. Even with my belly and larger bits, I was easily able to navigate the wand around my labia and clit. The curve of the handle is great in both directions and the weight of it makes holding it really nice.
Unfortunately, there are a few more negatives than positives. This toy is loud. Maybe not as loud as some other wands, but it’s still pretty intense. Also, the placement of the buttons is…complicated. They are placed directly where someones hand and fingers would go. I found myself accidentally clicking them during a session multiple times, no matter which direction they were facing.
The fin, while interesting in theory, is not very practical. The only time I used it was to ‘test’ it. I never found a good position or motion to use it in. I honestly would have loved this toy much more without the the addition of it. As a rounded head, it would have been wonderful, maybe a bit plain, but much more usable.
In the end, with a price point of $45, it’s a pretty great deal. You get a really powerful wand that is fairly simple to use and is completely waterproof. While there are a few negatives, I would still recommend this toy if you love wands and clitoral vibes. Plus the sizes lends itself to easy travel and discreet usage.
