Mia Giveaway

August 6th, 2011

Recently, the folks over at the Sex Toy Stand contacted me about spreading the word on their new shop. What a better way to do this than to host a giveaway? They graciously agreed to offer Mia, Lelo’s USB-rechargeable vibrator, to one lucky winner. Not too long ago, I got my hands on a Mia Black, the newer model of the toy with the stronger motor. As I understand it, Lelo is manufacturing all new Mias, regardless of color, with this strong motor. You may remember, from my review, that I was pretty impressed with Mia.

Lelo Mia

Mia‘s got a few things going for itL

  • USB charging is novel for a sex toy
  • It’s small size is discreet and travel-friendly
  • It’s easy to use
  • It’s quiet
  • It has a cap so you it’s self contained and the charging port isn’t out in the open
  • It doesn’t attract lint

If you think you might like to try this vibrator, you can earn yourself some entries in the following ways (please leave a comment for each entry!)

  • Mandatory: Let me know something else in your life that would be awesome if USB-powered
  • Leave a relevant/thoughtful comment on any other recent (three months or so) post. Leave a comment here with a link to your comment.

First Mate Silicone Dildo (Review and Giveaway)

July 9th, 2011

Even though the First Mate silicone dildo is smaller than the captain, it’s still quite a large dildo. Were it made of a firmer material/composition than it is, I probably wouldn’t enjoy it very much. However, I was thrilled to note that the silicone is softer than I was expecting. While this isn’t VixSkin, it certainly feels more realistic than any of the Tantus dildos I’ve tried. It squishes a bit when I squeeze it in my hand and I can bend the shaft a few degrees either way. This is definitely aided by the length of the toy. I haven’t even gotten around to fully inserting it and won’t even try because my cervix isn’t a big fan of that.

The First Mate measures in at 7 3/4″ and all but 1/2″ is insertable. This dildo has a width that varies between 1 3/4″ and 1 1/2″. It falls firmly in the realm of medium/large toys and is larger than most toys I’ve tried so that gives you quite the idea about the captain dildo. I had to use quite a bit or lube and them some more and, finally, more lube. The design is realistic and features veining and a drastically contoured head. Even though the shaft is quite straight, the bulbous head should provide enough G-spot stimulation from most, if the bulk doesn’t do it by itself.

It may have been the type of lube I used but I found the First Mate a little difficult to use and I had to keep reapplying. It was just a bit too big to glide easily so I found it better to use stationary with the use of a clitoral vibe. However, the contoured head was pretty great for clitoral stimulation, too. It felt fairly realistic to me.

The silicone of this dildo is a softer, more velvety finish as opposed to shinier silicones. It’s available in multiple flesh tones ranging from pale to pure black–which I received. The plastic blister pack is the only packaging/storage material that it comes with and it’s too bulky to be functional. Like any silicone, it tends to collect lint. It washes with soap and water but the base of the toy is slick — not slick enough to function as a suction cup, though — and hair and lint is more difficult to rinse off from this part of the toy.

Although the First Mate dildo isn’t perfect for me, I enjoyed the softer texture of the sex toy and think my readers will as well. That’s why I’m happy to offer one of these dildos to one of you in the form of a giveaway — thanks to Good Vibes!

Suck on This, Sweetheart

March 21st, 2011

As my week of sweet treats winds down and turns into more of a week-and-a-day, I have to present to you not one, but two, items for today’s giveaway. One of them has actually been featured on my very own blog. The Sweetheart I Rub My Duckie is ridiculously sweet in terms of packaging and appearance (even if mine didn’t operate so sweetly). She’s an adorable, miniature of the Paris Duckie, which I have also reviewed.

Sweetheart Duckie

A great gift for your sweetheart or yourself, this classy and luxurious Paris version of the I Rub My Duckie vibe comes in a gift-ready in a pretty heart shaped package. This pretty, petite travel sized vibe is all decked out in a removable, fuzzy white boa, with a genuine Swarovski crystal beauty mark. Inside hides a powerful, vibrator that takes your bath or shower to a whole new pleasurable place. You can use the curvy body to massage tired or sore muscles, but the pointed beak, rounded head and upturned tail act as pleasure points of vibration for clitoral or nipple stimulation, not to mention any other area you like to pay special attention to. The motor is ultra quiet, which adds even more to the discreet nature of this waterproof treat, to start and change up the intensity of the vibration, just spin the little dial on the underside of Paris. Since this toy looks so innocent, you could easily leave it in plain sight with no worries about anyone knowing it’s true nature, and the same goes for traveling with your vibe. Enjoy this innovative vibrating treat, and have a look at the rest of the Big Teaze Toys for lots of fun variations. Takes 1 AAA batteries (sold separately).

But that’s not all! The folks over at Pink Cherry are also offering this 3 Pack of Flavored Condoms in Cherry (how apt!) I have to tell you, I sort of wish I had a partner to test these out on.

Cherry Flavored Condoms

Play safe, but don’t lose out on fun. These fun flavored condoms from Hott are a great option for doing (and not doing) just that. Flavored and lubed up, this 3 pack is ready when you are for some marathon sexy-time. As with any condom, if used correctly, one of these, if put on and taken off at the proper time, can help prevent pregnancy and STI’s.

The condoms are individually wrapped and feature a sensual image to inspire your oral activities.

One lucky winner in the continental United States or Canada will win both!
