If you’re looking for a product to help improve vaginal strength, I highly recommend checking out the Geisha Balls by FunToys. Not only can this product be pleasurable, it also has health benefits.  This product works to train and exercise your PC muscles. I’ve been using this product for just over 2 months now, and I have noticed a huge difference. I’ve always done kegel  exercises on my own, but it doesn’t work as fast or effectively as using my Geisha Balls. My vagina is stronger, and not only are my muscles stronger, but my orgasms last longer and I’m able to have more orgasms than ever. So far, these are the best kegel exercisers I have yet to use.  They have really been successful at making a difference, and I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a nice set of kegel balls.

weights

 

Since there is a variety of weights, there are many stages of training available with the Geisha Balls.  If you’re just starting to train your PC muscles, I recommend starting out with the lighter weights and working your way up to the heavier weights.  When I first started my training, I could only keep the Geisha Balls in for about 30 minutes.  I am now able to use the lighter weights for a few hours at a time. I like to use mine while performing my daily routine activities. It really helps me to focus on grasping the weights with my muscles. I started using the 24g + 34g, and now I’m up to 34g + 44g. I use the heavier weights from time to time, but only for short periods of time.

There are a total of 4 balls, all of them a different weight. The weight of the balls are (lightest to heaviest): 24g, 34g, 44g, and 56g. You can distribute the weight however you feel necessary. They are color coordinated with the packaging, but if for any reason don’t keep / lose the packaging, the weight can be determined by the color. Light pink is the lightest, and the darker the color gets, they heavier the weight is. The color method is a fun idea, but without the packaging or the user manual, you have to rely on your memory to remember the exact weight. 

 

Materials:

The Geisha Balls are made of both silicone and plastic. The silicone strap is a durable material that is hypoallergenic, free of phathlates, and odorless. The silicone is an elastic, stretchy material that is so durable that you don’t have to worry about it losing it’s shape or strength. There is a drag to the silicone, so you will want to use a little bit of water-based lubricant to provide a more comfortable insertion. It’s also a lint magnet, so be sure to rinse it off right before inserting it. The weights are made of a smooth and shiny ABS plastic, but they do have a seam. The seam isn’t anything that can be felt, but you do want to make sure to clean the seams well.

Keeping It Clean:

To properly clean your Geisha Balls, you need to make sure you remove the balls from the sleeve. I clean the balls with a mild soap and warm water, and I like to boil the silicone, or put it through the dishwasher.  As I mentioned before, the plastic balls have seams, so make sure you clean them thoroughly.

Packaging:

The Geisha Balls come packaged inside of a fancy, non-discreet box.  Inside of the box are the 4 weights that are color coordinated to determine their weight, a travel/storage pouch, and detailed instructions on how to properly use the Geisha Balls. The box works good for storing purposes, and the included storage pouch is perfect for when you’re on-the-go.  The storage pouch is a small drawstring pouch, made of a thin fabric.

FunToys always does a great job at giving useful tips and detailed drawings on how to use their products, and there is no exception when it comes to this product. I’m a big fan of the drawings in their pamphlets!

I’d like to personally thank FunToys for the chance to review the Geisha Balls. If you’re interested in purchasing the G-vibe, you can do so by visiting their website and contacting them directly. It’s $49.99, and in my opinion worth every penny!

G-vibe Noir Special Edition — Review

G-vibe Noir Special Edition

gvibenoir1

 Pros:

• Strong vibrations
• Unique design
• Waterproof
• 100% Silicone

Cons:
The design can feel awkward, and may not work for everyone

Noise Level:  2/5     Intensity Level:  4/5

Overall Rating:

  • After having reviewed the original G-vibe, I was very excited to get the chance to review the G-vibe Noir.  It was also nice to see that the company was making an effort and taking steps to improve their product, based on their customer’s feedback. I have noticed some significant changes to this product, compared to the original. The vibrations are better, the material is better (as far as firmness and flexibility), it’s completely waterproof, and it’s even quieter.

The G-vibe Noir is a very versatile toy, and just like the original G-vibe, the Noir also comes with detailed images showing you the different ways you can use this toy. I actually appreciate the images that they provide. Not only are they fun to look at, but they really can be helpful at showing you how to use this uniquely shaped toy. You will see that this toy can be used internally and externally,  both anally and vaginally, it can massage the G-spot and the P-spot, and it can bring pleasure  to both men and women.

gvibenoir5gvibenoir4

Material:

The G-vibe Noir is made with the same high quality silicone that they used with the original G-vibe. It’s hypoallergenic, phthalate free, free of unpleasant smells, and completely body-safe. Around the handle area you will see a shiny silver, and that is made of an ABS plastic that is also body-safe.

The silicone material is silky smooth, and I love the way that it feels. Your fingers literally just glide across it. When comparing the original with the Noir, I did notice that the Noir is a lot more firm than the original. The original has some squishy-ness to it that the Noir does not. The prongs on the Noir are also not as flexible as the original. Personally, I happen to love both of these changes. The change in firmness and flexibility allow more pressure to be applied when inserted.

gvibenoir3

 

Shape / Size:

As you can see in the picture, there are  no physical differences when it comes to the shape of the G-vibe Noir compared to the original G-vibe. They both have  the same unique shape, and the measurements are also all the same. The G-vibe Noir is a total length of 9 inches from top to bottom, and just over 6 of those inches are insertable. It’s 4 1/4 inches in circumference, and the flexible prongs do a great job at giving you that full feeling. Whether or not these measurements will be good for you, will all come down to personal preference. I think those that really like girth, will enjoy the feeling of this toy.

 

Charging:

The G-vibe Noir is a USB rechargeable toy. You can charge it on your computer, or in an outlet with a USB charging adapter. The charging port is located at the bottom of the base, and if you have the original G-vibe, you will notice that the charging port no longer has the silicone flap over it.  Instead, it’s just a tiny hole in the silicone. I actually find that to be an upgrade from the original, especially when it comes to waterproof worries.  It doesn’t come with anything telling you how long to charge it for, but I only assumed it was the same 8 hour charging time of the original. After checking the toy often during use, I noticed it really only took 6 hours until the charging light was solid. A light flashes while the G-vibe Noir is charging, and once the light is solid, you will know the toy is finished charging. On the Fun Toys website, they state that you get 4 hours of use with a full charge. It has varied for me, and I think that it’s going to vary on the intensity level and pattern usage.  I get anywhere from 3-4 hours of use time with each charge.


Vibrations:

gvibepatterns

Fun Toys has really up’d their game when it comes to the vibrations of the Noir. The vibrations are rumbly, stronger, and deeper. That’s just the way I like them.  I didn’t think the Noir was buzzy at all, which is a great difference from the original G-vibe. There are still a motor at the tip of each prong, but Fun Toys has kicked it up a notch and  added a third motor into the shaft of the toy, increasing the vibration level a lot.  Just like the original, the G-vibe Noir offers 6 different vibration patterns for you to choose from. I have included a picture that I found on the Fun Toys website, showing the different vibrations patterns.

Controls:

There are three buttons on the base of the toy that power the toy and control the vibration patterns. The top + button powers the toy, and can be pressed 10 times, taking you through different intensity levels of vibrations. The bottom – button decreases the intensity, and then powers the toy off. The middle wavy button is the pattern button. This button takes you through the 6 different vibration patterns.  Overall, all of the buttons are very easy to press, and the controls are very user friendly and easy to understand.

Keeping It Clean:

The fact that the Noir is completely waterproof, is a huge improvement. You may not be able to boil it or put it in the dishwasher, but you can get it wet with no worries. So not only can you clean it with ease, you can also bring some fun into the shower or bath. You can clean this toy with soap and water, or your choice of toy cleaner.

gvibenoir2

 

Packaging / Storage: 

The G-vibe Noir comes packaged in a fancy box that may be hard for some to just throw away. The box itself works good for storage purposes, but there’s also a pouch included to store the toy and the charger inside. I have decided to keep  the box, and use the storage for traveling purposes. The pouch is very spacious, and it fits both the G-vibe Noir and the charger perfectly inside.

Gradient LOVE Nails

lovenails

This week, I tried to get a little creative and do a Valentine’s Day themed nails.  I’ve never tried doing gradient nails, but I decided I would get it a try. I wasn’t very happy with how they came out, but I definitely learned some things I can do differently when I attempt gradient nails in the future. I applied 1 coat of white nail polish as the base color, but I feel like I should have done a second coat. If my base color would have been more solid, the gradient may have applied and shown up better.

pinkpolishes

To do the gradient, I used 3 different shades of pink nail polish, and applied them to a makeup sponge. I wanted to show a picture of how to apply the nail polish to the makeup sponge, but I didn’t take a picture of the process. The next time I do  gradient nails, I will be sure to take pictures of the process and add them to this post. You basically apply a line of each color polish to the makeup sponge and then dab it onto your painted, DRY, white nails.

The cursive letters were just done with white nail polish and a toothpick. I didn’t have a brush small enough to do the trick, but I recommend that you use a very thin brush if you have one. You could also use acrylic paint instead of nail polish.

 

Tips for doing gradient - 

  • Be sure to dab the makeup sponge onto a paper towel before dabbing it onto your nails. This will help the colors blend together better.
  • Make sure you apply a few coats of the polish onto the makeup sponge. The sponge soaks up the paint a bit, so you want to ensure that the gradient shows up well.
  • Make sure your nails are completely dry before attempting to apply the gradient.
  • A white base color is highly recommended. It helps the gradient show up on your nail better.

Review — Neon Luv Touch Remote Control Bullet by Pipedream

Neon Luv Touch Remote Control Bullet by Pipedream

neonluv2

The Good:

• Inexpensive
• Fun
• Works up to 25 ft.
• Easy to use / clean
First set of batteries included

The Bad:

• Only one vibration level
Weak vibration
• Remote is not waterproof

Intensity Level:  3/5      Noise Level: 3/5

Overall Rating:
sun3

The Neon Luv Touch Remote Bullet is basically an egg-shaped bullet vibrator that controlled by a remote control, and can be used both internally and externally. It’s the perfect toy for couples, and it can really make foreplay a lot more fun and exciting. It’s a very discreet and travel friendly toy that you can basically take with you anywhere. I love the idea of using this toy out and about with a partner. I have yet to try it in public, but even using it around the house was a lot of fun.One of my favorite things to do is use this toy in the bath. The bullet itself is completely waterproof, but the remote control is not, so make sure you are careful and cautious when using this near water. 

To start using your bullet, you will need batteries for both the bullet and the remote control. The bullet takes 2 AAA batteries, and the remote control takes 1 N battery. I personally don’t like dealing with battery operated toys, but your first set of batteries are included, so that’s a plus.Some may think that since there is a retrival cord, this toy might work anally, but I would NOT use this toy anally. It could easily get lost, and make for an embarrassing ER trip.

Material / Texture:

Both the bullet and the remote control are made of the same plastic material. Plastic is non-porous material that is body safe, and it’s free of any unpleasant odors. This particular plastic has no texture, but it does have a velvety finish that feels silky-smooth. You can easily glide your fingers across the material without any lubricant at all. 

Vibrations:

Although this bullet is very arousing, the one vibration level is not enough to bring me to an orgasm. On a scale of 1-5, this toy is just barely at a 3. It would also be nice if this bullet offered different vibration levels or patterns. I think that could make this toy a lot more fun for couples.  I wasn’t expecting the vibrations to be very powerful, and in the end, I looked at this toy as something to have fun with. With that being said, I wasn’t at all disappointed.

The noise level is not as quiet as I would like it to be, but it’s also not annoying loud either. If there is some noise going on in the room, you can’t hear this toy at all. As soon as the room you’re in gets completely silent, you can definitely hear a buzz. If you plan to use this toy in public, make sure there is some noise going on to mask the noise of the vibrations.

Measurements:

Bullet -

• Total length: 3 1/2 inches
• Circumference: 4 1/4 inches
• Length of retrieval cord: 8 inches

Remote Control -

• 2 1/8 in. x 1 3/8 in. x 0.5 in.

neonluv3

Shape / Size / Controls: 

The Neon Luv Touch Bullet is a small egg-shaped bullet that is small enough to fit in the palm of my hand, and has an 8 inch retrieval cord hanging from the base. The tip of the bullet is slightly tapered, making it easier to insert. Some users may prefer something more filling, but I think this is the perfect size to start with. I personally wouldn’t want anything larger. The remote control is wireless, hassle-free, and discreet. It’s small in size, and can be compared to the size of a small pager or a Zippo lighter. Since there are no fancy functions or patterns, the only thing you can do with the remote control is turn the bullet on and off. On the front of the remote is an easy to operate on/off switch.

 

 

Keeping it Clean & Safe:

This toy is really easy to clean and store. The bullet is waterproof, so cleaning is really easy.  Soap and water will do the trick, but boiling or running it through the dishwasher is not an option.  My only tip would be to make sure you clean well around the seam/waterproof ring.  Since the remote is not waterproof, I just wipe it down with wipes or a cloth.

Personal Experience / Thoughts:

Overall, this toy has lived up to my expectations. I’ve never really heard great things about toys like this. Especially regarding the range and connection of the bullet and the remote. I didn’t have any issues with my bullet, and I was completely satisfied with the range and connection between the remote and the bullet. It says on the box that it works up to 25 feet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it works even further apart than that. I was able to get it to work throughout my entire house.  This was my first time using a remote controlled bullet, and it was a nice one to start out with. It gave me a chance to test out this type of toy and see if it was something that I would like. Now that I see how fun these can be, I definitely plan on trying to find one that has different vibration levels, and maybe even one that is rechargeable.

Review — Echo Handle by Tantus

Echo Handle by Tantus

echohandle

 The Good:
• 100% pure silicone
• Ergonomic handle
• Long length
• Flexibility
• Easy to clean and take care of

The Bad:
• I honestly can’t find any cons.

Overall Rating:

sun5

The Echo Handle is a non-vibrating, high quality sex toy.  It’s the ideal toy for targeting the G-Spot, thrusting,  and also a good choice for those who are looking for something with longer length. It’s also great for those who like to take control, as that is something you can definitely do with this dildo. If you were to ask me, I would say this dildo is perfect for users of all experience levels. Beginners shouldn’t let the long length of this dildo intimidate them. You can even use this toy anally, if you’re careful. The flare at the base is not very defined but because of the long length and the handle, you can safely use this anally. Just be cautious and careful.

echohanle1

 

Material/Texture:

The Echo Handle is made of 100% pure silicone. I love everything about Tantus silicone. Tantus toys are completely body safe, non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and free of phthlates. They’re also odorless, and can be cleaned many ways. This silicone material won’t cause any irritations or infections, so those with sensitive skin will benefit from this material. The best thing about this material is that it is very long lasting. If you properly take care of your dildo, it could last your entire lifetime.  The shaft of this dildo is covered in a ribbed/wavy texture. The ribbed texture is very arousing! It’s very subtle, and not at all abrasive. 

 

 

echohandle4

Measurements:

• Total length: 11 1/2 inches
• Insertable length: 7 1/2 inches
• Length of handle: 4 inches
• Circumference: 4 1/2 inches (at it’s widest point)

echohandle2Shape/Size/Design:

The Echo Handle is long and flexible, with an ergonomic handle. Because of the long length, you’re able to control / manipulate all the movements of this toy with ease. The flexibility makes it very easy to target your G-Spot, and the rounded head works wonderfully at massaging and hitting the G-Spot, as well. This dildo is most flexible at the bottom of the shaft, right above the handle. The shaft itself is not as flexible. The long length and flexibility allows you to comfortably use this dildo while in many different positions. I was able to hit just the right spots, all on my own.

The ergonomic handle is fucking awesome, and by far my favorite feature about this toy. The handle is ribbed for hand placement, making it very easy & comfortable to grasp and keep hold of. The handle does not slip out of my hand unless I use a lot of lube. That’s when things can start to get slippery. I try to avoid getting too much lubricant on the handle the best I can.

echohandle3

Packaging:

 The Echo Handle comes inside of a clear casing that you can see right through, and it is the least bit discreet. On the packaging you will find a lot of information about the safe quality of Tantus toys. It’s not the ideal place to store your new toy, but you can keep it for storing if that’s what you wish to do. If you don’t wish to keep the packaging, then you can just recycle it instead.

Keeping it Clean:

The great thing about this material is that you can clean it many ways, as I mentioned before. This material can be bleached, boiled, or thrown into the dishwasher, which is great if you plan on sharing ,or using this toy both vaginally and anally. I recommend the dishwasher, because it can be difficult fitting this dildo into a pot. If you’re not sharing this toy, or using it anally, you can simply wash it with soap and water, or your choice of toy cleaner.

I would like to thank Tantus for the chance to review the Echo Handle. You can purchase this product on the Tantus website by clicking on the banner that I have provided below.

Bunny Bliss Review

 Bunny Bliss from Blush Novelties

bunnybliss1

The Good:
100% pure silicone
Rechargeable
Waterproof

The Bad:
Buzzy & weak vibration
Noisy

Intensity Level:   2/5      Noise Level:   3.5/5

Overall Rating:

bunnybliss2

 

Shape / Size:
Bunny Bliss is a moderately sized, rechargeable clitoral vibrator that is designed for ultimate comfort and control. It’s a very easy toy to   maneuver, and it fits nicely in the palm of one’s hand. It’s shaped like a bunny’s head, and I happen to think it’s pretty adorable… minus the fact that it doesn’t have eyes, but whatever.  The bunny ears at the tip invite women to experience precise clitoral stimulation.

Measurements:

  • Total length – 6 inches
  • Length of ears – 1 inch
  • Circumference around the bunny nose – 4 1/4 inches
  • Circumference around the base – 5 1/2 inches

 

 

Controls/Vibrations:

The control buttons are located at the lower region of the vibrator. There are two buttons that control this vibrator. The buttons are very easy to press, and their location is perfectly placed where you can easily adjust the vibrations without any distractions. The bottom button is the power button that turns the product on and off. The top button is the mode button, and that button will change the speed or pattern of vibrations every time you press it. The Bunny Bliss has 10 different vibration patterns, which is something that I don’t really use, but I like the feature.

The biggest disappointment were the vibrations. I found the vibrations to be extremely buzzy, and they’re not even that strong. I could feel more of a buzz in my hand than I could in the tips of the bunny ears. I also noticed that the vibrations were strongest at the bunny’s nose. I would try to use the bunny ears, but I kept going back to the nose of the bunny. I was also able to apply a lot of pressure on the nose, and I am someone who likes to apply a lot of pressure, so that was a plus.

bunnybliss3

Material:

The Bunny Bliss is made of 100% pure silicone. It’s phthalate-free with a soft, smooth, durable, and silky smooth satin finish to the exterior.  While the portion that comes in contact with you sexy bits is made out of silicone, the base area that surrounds the controls is made of a shiny silver plastic.

There was one concern I had with the material of this product. When you flex the bunny ears, it looks like the seams start to split. I worry that eventually the silicone will tear.

 

 

bunnybliss5

Keeping it Safe:

The Bunny Bliss comes with it’s very own pouch to store it inside of, so it makes storing this toy very easy and convenient. The Storage back is super cute, and it’s big enough to store both the vibrator and the charging adapter inside of it. I love the bows at the end of the ties, they’re really cute. Because the Bunny Bliss is made of silicone, make sure you only use water based lubricants with this vibrator. Sometimes you can find high quality silicone lubricants that can be used with silicone toys, but make sure you always do a spot test before hand.

 

 

 

bunnybliss7

Keeping it Clean:

Since this vibrator is waterproof, cleaning is easy breezy. First, make sure the charging port is closed, then you can wash it with soap and water, or a toy cleaner of your choice.  There are a lot of seams and crevices, so make sure to clean those areas very well.

Charging:

The Bunny Bliss is rechargeable, so you must charge it for 1.5 hours before the first use. That is hardly a wait compared to a lot of the other rechargeable toys I own. I definitely recommend always charging your rechargeable toys for as long as the manufacturer suggests. They also recommend fully charging and fully draining your product to extend the battery life, I also strongly agree with that! After the initial charge, the charging time is still anywhere from 1 – 1.5 hours. Then, you get 90 minuets of playtime with your toy. The charging process is very simple.  Simply insert the adapter by opening the port at the bottom of the vibrator, and voilà. Since the Bunny Bliss is waterproof, you want to make sure that the charging port is securely closed before you get it wet.

 

bunnybliss6

Packaging:

Nothing about this toy really screamed ‘luxurious’ to me, except for maybe the packaging. It comes packaged in a high quality box that is perfect for storage purposes. It magnetically opens & closes, and inside it has a foam piece that houses the Bunny Bliss perfectly. You can remove the foam piece and store the charger underneath. I have a hard time throwing away boxes like this, but since it came with a storage pouch, I’m sure I will eventually be tossing the box. Included with the toy is a small pamphlet with charging and cleaning information.
