ENTER TO WIN Autoblow 2 – The World’s First Robotic Blow Job Simulator! Review By Domina Doll

 ENTER TO WIN an Autoblow 2 – The world’s first robotic blow job simulator! We’re giving away TWO this month – so your chances to win are doubled!

The Autoblow 2 is the world’s first robotic blow job simulator for guys.

Being phallically challenged, I had to get some help for this review, so got my partner Chris to be the guinea-penis. Chris is a novice sex toy user and hasn’t used many sex toys in the past because he thinks they are mostly creepy. But I managed to convince him he would love this or I would owe him 2000 blowjobs if he didn’t, because that is about how many you can get with the Autoblow 2.

History of the Autoblow 2

The Autoblow 2 has an interesting history. It was invented by Brian Sloan, who went to law school and then decided to become a sex toy manufacturer. Who can blame him!? He spent quite a while in China, coming up with various ideas and eventually a prototype on how to make a sex toy for men that wasn’t manual, and did all the work for you.

A robotic blowjob machine! How cool is that? Well, for lots of guys, it is very cool. For the past 50 years, or so, men have been getting short-changed in the sex toy department. From blow-up plastic airheads to squishy jelly blobs, there wasn’t a lot of choices for metrosexual guys who wanted more sophisticated “pleasure” objects. Now, more than ever, the market is ripe for male sex toys, which proves, men do like sex toys just as much as women.

The Autoblow 2 was IndieGoGo funded where it became “The crowdfunded blowjob robot everyone is talking about!” and raised $280,034USD in just 1 month. That’s like amaze-balls, and goes to show that guys do want a superior sex toy to play with.

Hands Free, Almost

With manual style masturbators you need to stroke it. And, stroke it, and stroke it, and stroke it, and… well you get the idea. It is labor intensive, and pretty much the same as giving yourself a hand-job, except with a soft, squishy sleeve. So, while it may save you from getting hairy palms (just kidding!), it is not the most relaxing or pleasurable way to masturbate. Not to mention all the men who get carpal tunnel syndrome from doing it (and you thought that was from all those carpentry projects he was working on!), manual masturbation can wear a guy down.

Enter the Autoblow 2. Plug in and play. Yes, that’s it. Oh, and you need a hard penis and some lube as well. But that’s basically it. Just insert penis into the mouth of the Autoblow 2 with lots of lube, plug the machine into any wall unit, turn it on, lay back and relax.

The device has a variable speed control at the bottom that lets you choose the stroking motion inside from slow to fast. The Autoblow 2 is a machine and a bit weighty, is about 9” in height and 4.2” wide. So, lots of length and girth of work with inside. It comes with a removeable, reusable flesh-like sleeve that is available in 3 different sizes. The electrical parts and motor of this product are covered by a 6 months warranty.

Care and Cleaning

The sleeves are reusable and can be cleaned with soap and water. Allow to dry thoroughly, then powder with cornstarch and place in a clean zip-lock bag for storage.

How Does it Work?

The motor powers two beaded rollers inside (like the beads that rotate in some rabbit vibrators) that go up and down the penis with a piston action, gripping your erection.

Chris let me hold the device for him while he laid back hands free after warming him up first with my own amazing brand of hand-job. After applying lots of lube, he pushed his penis inside, handed it over to me and I turned the monster on. The Autoblow 2 does make a lot of noise, which the manufacturers are aware of. But, like the Magic Wand, if you want power, then you have to settle for a bit of noise, they say.

His eyebrows turned in quizzically and he said, “Mmm-hmm.”

I said, “Mmm-hmm? Well how does it feel? I want details!”

“Give me a bit to get used to it first, okay?”

I smiled and said, “Sure hun, whenever you are ready.”

He made a few more strange faces, said, “Mmm-hmm,” a few more times and then, “okay, I’m done.”

After about 10 minutes, he gave up. It wasn’t really do the job for him. But, then again, Chris is REALLY spoiled by my amazing hand-jobs (my hands should be insured like Jennifer Lopaz’s butt!). And, now I owe Chris 1000 blowjobs, which is going to take me FOREVER to fulfill. Can you say chapstick, anyone?

So, while it did feel good, and did provide an interesting stroking action and may save you from carpal tunnel, the Autoblow 2 is not the definitive blowjob machine yet. More of a super powered robo-stroker, for sure.

But, just because it didn’t work for Chris, doesn’t mean it wouldn’t work for other guys (not every guy has a hand-job pro as a partner…). I invite you to take the Autoblow 2 challenge yourself, and see how it feels. Cummon, guys, it’s got to be better than a jelly blob, or plastic airhead, right?

Thanks to Brian Sloan for gifting me with the Autoblow 2 for this review. And, thanks to Chris for being my guinea-penis.

The New Age of G-spot Orgasm

Are you still searching for that elusive G-spot orgasm? Well, I may just have the tool for you, to give you exquisite, flushed, juicy, BIG, G-spot orgasms. Read on…

I have always been a fan of Lelo because they make beautiful, sophisticated, body safe pleasure products with expert design. In fact, my favorite G-spot vibrator used to be their bestselling Gigi. Used to be…

Introducing the Mona Wave!

mona wave review 1

OMG where have you been all my life, big gal?

The idea behind this toy is WaveMotion™. Such a simple idea, I don’t know why someone hasn’t come up with it before. Basically, Mona Wave (and her dual-purpose friend Ina Wave) have a pivot point inside of them that allows them to curl up and down in a “come hither” fashion much like your fingers when used for G-spot stimulation.

Amaze Balls!

When I first turned it on and saw it in action, I was like, “Holy G-spot orgasm Batman!” How cool is that thing! Mona was doing sit-ups in the palm of my hand. I showed it to my partner and he was like, “Brilliant!” I think he was contemplating all the fatigued wrist action he’d avoid, while using my new toy on me.

“Hey Mona, you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind, hey Mona!”

Yes, Mona blew my mind and gave me one heck of a squirting orgasm. And, it didn’t take long.

The Specs

Mona is made from velvety sleek medical grade silicone and ABS plastic with velvet coat. To me, these materials “feel” more exquisite than cyberskin, as I love that velvety sensation. Mona is also 100% waterproof so great for bath time fun. She is rechargeable and lasts for about 2 hours of play time. Plus she comes with a 1-Year Warranty and 10-Year Quality Guarantee, all in a beautiful storage/gift box with user manual, satin storage pouch and packet of Lelo water-based lube.

Mona’s body is voluptuously curved with a firm, bulbous head which makes it perfect for G-spot massage. She has 4.3” of insertable length, more than enough to reach the G-spot which is approximately 1-2” inside the vagina on most women.

Turn her on using the control panel at the base with 5 buttons: On/Off | – | + | V | ^ . The plus and minus buttons cycle through the speeds, while up and down buttons cycle through 10 different patterns and motions. With some of the settings she undulates and with some of them she remains stationary and vibrates. The vibrations go from steady vibration, to wave-like patterns, to zoomy, boomy deep rhythms. There is also one setting where she undulates without vibration at all. So many settings, which ones to try! Well, all of them of course.

My Observations

I found straight vibration without the wave movement great for my clitoris and vulva to get warmed up. Then, I switched to the thuddy deeper vibrations upon insertion as I massaged my G-spot. When I was ready, I let her go full throttle with that “come hither” wave and deep zoomy, boomy rhythms. Of course, you can experiment and find which settings work best for you.

What I love!

I love the firm, bulbous head and how it is large and dense enough to massage the entire G-spot area. The undulating wave is amazing. It doesn’t exactly replicate the “feel” of come hither fingers. Rather, it feels just as good, but different. The Wave action works like a press-and-release rubbing pressure that lushly strokes the G-spot. Combined with the vibrations is it wildly stimulating.

The G-spot, once aroused, enjoys firm, deep pressure, as if you are gently pressing into the flesh of a peach and bruising it. I used to use G-spot massagers with a rocking, up and down motion, but there is no need of that with the Mona Wave as she does all the work for you. Rather, you can slide her slightly in and out to rub the G-spot while she does all the sexy pumping action for you.

Some people also enjoy vibration with G-spot massage, while others do not. Up until the Mona Wave, I was not one to get off on internal vibration. However, the deep throbbing type of vibrations that Mona creates is more thuddy, rather than buzzy, and it helped move the increasing ecstatic wave of pleasure through my body. Plus, it felt really freaking good.

The Mona Wave by Lelo is truly an exceptional pleasure object. Won’t say I am in love with her, but I just may be hibernating a little bit longer this winter. E-hem.

There is no other sex toy that uses this wave motion technology (except Lelo’s Ina Wave ), and it is delicious. Not only is this my number 1 recommendation for G-spot pleasure now (oh, yeah!), it is also my new favorite play toy period. She works well for clitoral and vulva massage, as well as exquisite G-spot pleasure, for various types of combined, g-spot and squirting orgasms.

While she is a sophisticated toy, I would recommend her to women who are just starting to explore their g-spot as well as experienced users.

Hell Ya!

Creating Your Own 50 Shades Sexperience

With the movie Fifty Shades of Grey becoming a global phenomenon (earning over 400 million globally in ticket sales in the first two weeks), it is very likely that many couples will be heading home to create their own “Red Room” of pain or pleasure (if they don’t end up in handcuffs before ever leaving the theater itself, that is). So, while you may be tempted to masturbate at the movies during some of the hot, sexy scenes, or worse!, I encourage you to create your own fifty shades of grey experience in a safe, sane and consensual fashion.

50 Shades movie pic

Your Contract

In the film, Christian and Anastasia negotiate the terms of their contract, which will not include any activities than are non-consensual, and she defines her list of limits (activities she will not do). Before you create your own “Red Room,” you and your lover (or play partner) should have a talk about what activities you will try out and which ones are off limits (don’t go there). This is super important before taking part in any type of kinky play (or sex for that matter), so partners can stay within the boundaries of that agreement and construct a safe space to play within, both physically and emotionally. This safe environment allows both parties to better immerse themselves more deeply into the play, knowing their limits are already defined and that they have a secure space to explore their fantasies together. Please note: exploring fantasies in a safe, negotiated, consensual environment is much different than a real life. Many people have fantasies about being bound, whipped, raped and dominated, but in real life No means NO!

While it is not necessary to have a written contract, a BDSM Checklist can inspire you to add different elements to your play you may not have thought about, as well as learn about activities you may want to avoid. Here is the actual contract from 50 Shades that you can print out and share. Here is a BDSM checklist similar to one that I have used in the past.

Also noted in the books and used in BDSM play is the use of a safe word or words. The word “Yellow” is used during a play scene to bring attention to the dominant/top that the submissive/bottom is close to their limit of endurance, or that the dominant needs to slow down, stop or change the activity. “Yellow” could also indicate the need for a break, or water, or that the submissive is getting dizzy, overwhelmed, etc…, so this is when the dominant checks in the with sub to see what’s going on. Of course, the dominant (or giver) should be constantly checking in with the submissive (receiver) during an entire scene by paying attention to their body language and making sure they are okay verbally. “Red” means stop activity immediately and completely, and usually indicates that the submissive has met their limits. A smart and empathetic dominant will hopefully never make their partner use the “Red” word, as they are constantly paying attention to their partner’s needs. It is not cool to push limits, unless this is previously negotiated. The reason safe words are used in BDSM play is because a submissive may say “No!” during a scene, or “stop!” when in actuality they want their partner to continue, as they are playing a role. They know that this is a fantasy and that their partner will not really hurt them. This is how a BDSM fantasy differs than real life when No does mean No!

The Scene

The atmosphere you create for a scene can be very important, allowing both partners to get into the roles better. There are lots of ways to create a seductive (or intimidating) Red Room scene by using music, lighting, fabric, props, tools and attire. In 50 Shades they used a lot of red, black and brown: red walls, dark furniture, dark colored play toys and lots of leather. You can easily create a sense of this by draping the walls with red fabric, hanging toys from chains, and spreading red “pleather” over the bed. Using candles can go a long way to create atmosphere as well, but just be careful not to turn your play space into a red fiery blaze. I personally like the metal sconces you can get from dollar stores that have flickering lights that look like candle light. Much safer when your mind is elsewhere.

For bondage furniture you can DIY your own make-shift pervertables like a spanking bench made out of a padded chair or an old saw horse wrapped in leather. There are designs online for creating a Saint Andrew’s Cross or other dungeon furniture if you are handy with tools. Then again, you can purchase sex toy furniture rather cheaply that can be used in a pinch like over-the-door restraints, or bedroom bondage kits.

Play Toys

There are several types of play toys that Christian uses on Anastasia during the movie. Remember it takes time learning how to use new tools, so be careful and try to learn various techniques before you start playing on an actual living body. There are lots of sources for learning including DVDs, books and local play groups which hold Kink Aware demos and workshops.

Bondage Toys—In the movie, Christian uses various types of bondage equipment to tie Ana up with. There is the infamous grey tie he uses to wrap around her wrists, along with bondage rope and leather hand cuffs.

Safety Bondage Tips
  • Always have safety scissors on hand in case of an emergency.
  • Learn as much as you can about a bondage technique before trying it. Read, watch, practice and if possible get an experienced mentor to show you the ropes. If you can’t go to a workshop, buy some good bondage books or DVDs to learn the ropes.
  • Learn where the basic pulse points are located on the wrists, upper-inner thigh and throat and avoid crossing these with direct pressure from the ropes.
  • Ropes should fit snugly, but not too tight so as to avoid serious injury from loss of blood supply to the bound part. You should be able to slip one to two fingers under the ropes.
  • Avoid metal hand cuffs if you are a novice as they can chafe, and don’t secure too snugly which will cut of circulation. Plus, you wouldn’t want to be one of the enthusiasts who lost their key and had to call the paramedics to un-cuff them.
  • Never bind rope around the front of someone’s throat.
  • Never leave someone bound alone. Skin should be constantly observed for numbness, coldness, and discoloration, as circulation decreases.
  • Test new bondage techniques for 10 to 15 minutes before trying longer time limits.
  • Avoid placing pressure on the Brachial Plexus nerve which runs along the back near the scapula (shoulder blade).
Blindfolds

Blindfolds are awesome sensory tools that can be used to limit your partner’s vision which in turn fires up their other senses. Suddenly, every noise, touch, or whispered breathe becomes charged with eroticism when your other senses are enhanced and aroused.

Sensation Play

Sensation play toys include anything that can create a different, often sensual, sensation on your play partner. There is a sexy scene in the movie where Christian uses ice between his lips to run down Ana’s body. Other sensation play toys include feathers < >, silk or satin (for a soft touch), or vampire gloves and pin wheels (for a prickly touch).

Crops and Floggers

Crops and floggers are otherwise called percussion toys. Crops are very firm, thin and can deliver quite a nasty sting, so should be used with caution. They are excellent when used for positioning your sub and correcting posture, or quick light smacks. Floggers are usually made of leather or suede and have several fronds hanging from a handle. They can be used as a deep massaging type of percussion play tool on the back, the butt, between the thighs, stomach and chest. They can be wielded a bit harder than a crop with less pain, as they provide a thuddy, broader impact.

Those are only a few of the types of BDSM toys you can use for sexy kinky consensual play. There are also kits available such as Dr. Ava’s How to Couples BDSM Kit which has an instructional DVD by Dr. Ava Cadell, so perfect for beginners with lots of juicy tips. For experienced players who like a kit that can do everything and is travel friendly, there is Ms. Ming’s awesome Pocket Dungeon Kit. And, of course, there are all the Official Fifty Shades of Grey products endorsed by E.L. James herself.

So, now that you have the tools to create your own Red Room of pain and pleasure, don’t forget to play consensually. I don’t want to read anymore about idiots blaming Fifty Shades of Grey for their own ignorance or using it as an excuse to assault someone else. Ending up in hand cuffs is much more enjoyable as a fantasy place scene, than it is in real life.

Bubble Love Pleasure Jet Massager – Review by Domina Doll

Sexpert.com is giving away a Bubble Love Jet Massager this February! ENTER TO WIN right now!

So. The Bubble Love. What is it? Go to their website at bubblelove.com and you will see rather obscure images of what could be a strange appliance from the 1950s such as A) a new wave Mixmaster, B) a cordless steam iron, C) or a handheld floor polisher. Even the name “Bubble Love” and its packaging are reminiscent of that era, when vibrators were marketed as back massagers and “spot reducers.” In fact, the Bubble Love is so discreet, no one would ever guess that it is a submergible personal pleasure water jet toy for clitoral masturbation.

The Specs

BUBBLE LOVE_CLOSEDBOX-BATH-405SMALL

It is a rather large (Length: 6.90 Inches x Width: 3.60 Inches), weighty (2 lbs) plastic mechanical device that sucks air from the top hole (like a whale’s blow hole) and blows a jet stream of bubbles from a hole near the base (like the whale’s mouth) when submerged in at least 6 – 28 inches of water. While it could be used for massage purposes, it is truly meant to be used for clitoral stimulation.

It comes with a detachable suction cup base (for hands-free operation) that adjusts in height for positioning,  a deep water floaty thing, and tubing to use when the device is fully submerged and the whale’s blow hole is below the water line. It is rechargeable and comes with a wall adapter and charging cable that takes about 6 hours to fully charge. The power is controlled with an Off/On switch under the handle and the force of the jet power can be controlled by the bubble intensity dial. You can also purchase a dilly attachment sold separately that attaches to the front end by the bubble jet.

Intrigued?

BUBBLELOVE onTowel_BATH_487SMALL

Given that it is new, innovative and unique (it won the XBiz Editor’s Choice Award for the Most Innovative Sex Toy in 2014), I was definitely intrigued and wanted to try it.

When I took it out of the box I was surprised at how big and heavy it was. I don’t know what I was expecting, but I guess something a bit smaller and not as awkward looking.

Putting it together and charging it I didn’t have any issues. But, using it the first time in the bath was a different matter. It reminded me of a comedy scene from Lucille Ball. Let’s just say my experience was much like these fire fighters:

First, I couldn’t get the suction cup base to stick to the bottom of the tub, so it kept slipping, meaning I had to hold on to it. If you don’t hold on to it and it slips out of your hand it will spray 15 foot jets of water all over the bathroom. It sprayed me in the face and then went crazy spraying down the whole bathroom before I could get a hold of the damn thing. Definitely not an experience to put you in the mood for orgasm.

Finally, I got the little fucker under control and held onto it with one hand and tried to position it without the suction cup, (very awkward indeed!), and it wouldn’t point the bubble jets where I wanted them (arghhh!). I laid back against the tub, but found I couldn’t really do that while holding onto it (you need very long arms), so had to half prop myself up to reach it (not comfortable) for it to work. I finally got it positioned and close enough to my clit that I got favorable results, and learned I could hold onto it by squeezing it with my thighs, which worked well, keeping a finger on top to keep it from going crazy again.

How Does it Feel?

It feels much like a Jacuzzi jet, but not quite as powerful, however much stronger than a hand-held shower nozzle and more focused for more intense stimulation. In fact, it felt quite good and it didn’t take me long to have a big “O.” It doesn’t feel like a vibrator at all, it is more sensual feeling due to the water and more thuddy than buzzy.

I think many women would enjoy the sensation and be able to get off with it, provided they are not used to power wand massagers, or need a 5 second fix. You definitely would want to relax and take your time with it.

Final Thoughts

It is fun to play with and does make bath-time masturbation more pleasurable, as long as you learn to keep it under control. And, it is unique, innovative and has a very different type of stimulation, which some women will certainly enjoy.

Having said that I can think of a few things that would improve it immensely:

  • Smaller more compact design so it is less awkward and not so heavy.
  • A power nozzle attachment that is easier to hold and control and more ergonomically designed.
  • A better way to attach the dilly so it is more stable.

So, there it is, the Bubble Love. A unique waterplay toy that looks like it came out of the 1950s that even Lucille Ball would have loved. If she ever used a masturbation device, that is.

aloe-cadabra-1

In my article on the best body-safe lubes, “Your Sexy Guide to Body Safe Lubricants – Part 2,” I briefly reviewed Aloe Cadabra natural lubricant along with a few other lubes. I gave it an A+ rating and said “it just may be the best lube I have ever tried.”

Well, the more I use this lube, the more I stand by that statement wholeheartedly. This stuff is super-fantastic, and I don’t say that in a review, ever.

But! Aloe Cadabra also makes 4 more lubes with flavors, scents and tingles. Will these lubes be as good as their natural lube?

Let’s find out…

All Natural

Like the natural lube, Aloe Cadabra’s specialty lubes are made with organic Aloe Vera (95-97% of the product is Aloe Vera in fact) and all natural ingredients including Vitamin E which is great for the skin. The flavored lubes use Organic Stevia, which is a natural herbal sweetener, instead of glycerine or sugars, which means, no worries of bacterial infections for women. For preservatives they use Citric Acid which is a natural preservative, as well as Xanthan Gum, which is a natural thickening agent. Also included are food grade Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate, both of which have very low toxicity and are naturally occurring in berries.

Viscosity

The thickness of these lubes is perfect. It is a thick, clear, slightly cloudy gel, which reminds me of boy cum. It won’t run, and stays thick and slippery during use. It absorbs naturally into the body leaving absolutely no residue, or stickiness. My partner said it was the best lube he has ever tried: “lasted a long time, felt like real “pussy” juice,” when used during a hand job. We used these lubes for penis to vagina penetration, oral sex, hand jobs and fingering as well as vulva massage, and in every instance the lube lasted a long time, never got sticky and stayed super slippery. Just perfect! I’m sure it would be excellent for anal play as well for those very reasons.

Flavors

I normally dislike flavored lubricants. Often this is because they taste so unnatural, and are overpowering. But, Aloe Calabra uses all natural flavoring which makes a huge difference in the subtlety of the flavor. These lubes are mildly flavored and taste like real flavors, because they are real flavors.

Tahitian Vanilla flavor has a hint of natural organic vanilla in it and tastes like vanilla. The flavor is very mild and slightly sweet. It smells like ambrosia, and is delicious. Tastiest lube I have ever tried! In addition, Vanilla has been used as an aphrodisiac since ancient times. Certain studies on aromatherapy have proved that vanilla can increase sexual desire by boosting testosterone levels in men. Its aroma induces feelings of pleasure and satiation. As an anti-inflammatory agent, it vanilla has been used to calm and soothe the skin.

Piña Coloda flavor uses organic Piña Coloda flavor concentrate. It is again, very mild and tastes slightly sweet with a coconut flavor, much like organic coconut oil. The scent is slightly more powerful than the taste, but still very subtle. Tastes great!

Scents

French Lavender scent uses organic lavender oil. It smells exactly like fresh lavender cut from a bush, yet not quite as overpowering as the real thing. Still, more scented than the Vanilla and Piña Coloda flavors. I was a bit weary of trying a scented product on my vulva because I am so sensitive. However, lavender oil is great for the skin and has been used for centuries for its natural healing properties (as an antiseptic and antifungal agent) for the skin to soothe cuts, burns and skin irritations. It also promotes skin oxygenation and flushes the skin with blood, which is great for the genitals. As a scent, it has stress-relieving and relaxing properties.

And, it felt very soothing as a sexual lubricant and was great for masturbation and I had no issues with any type of irritation after use. In fact, I would recommend using it as a daily moisturizer for the vulva and vagina, especially for women who are aging and have issues with natural lubrication. It also makes a great hand moisturizer, just saying!

Tingle

Peppermint Tingle uses organic peppermint oil. Again, I was a bit hesitant about trying it, as I have had issues with other tingling products that used peppermint, mint, or menthol. Again, I didn’t have any issues with using this product on my genitals. My partner used it as well and really enjoyed the tingling feeling it gave him.

It has a slight cooling sensation when applied which gets a bit stronger as it penetrates. I didn’t necessarily enjoy the cooling sensation myself, as I prefer to be warm, but it didn’t take away from my pleasure either, but rather heightened sensations. I think this would be a great product for men to heighten sensation as well as prolong arousal.

The taste and scent was slightly stronger than the other lubes, but still subtle. It reminded me of those mint chocolate patties. Yum!

Peppermint Oil aids in blood circulation and has stimulating effects which are great for the penis. In studies, peppermint oil increases pulse rate and blood circulation.

Conclusion

So, are the flavored, scented and tingling lubes by Aloe Cadabra as good as the natural one? Yes! They are all great lubes that add a lot of sensuality to your sexy time. And, even on very sensitive skin, I had no irritations what-so-ever.

Definitely awesome lubricants!

ENTER to WIN a Revel Body SOL Vibrator – Review by Domina Doll

It is not often that something new comes along in the sex toy marketplace when it comes to vibrators.

The Revel Body SOL Sonic Vibrator with TrueSonic Technology is totally different than any type of vibrator you have ever tried. Sign up to win one here, along with Aloe Cadabra Lubes.

The Revel Sol has a different vibration motor than most other vibes. Most vibes have a rotary vibration motor which spins around to create vibration. The Sol has a linear resonating motor design that creates a back and forth pulsating action. The best way I can describe this, is like a piston action, where the inner Quiet core of the vibrator, pumps in and out of the round outer SOL body. It does this by using a magnetically polarized inside moving part (the inner core) inside the electronically housed motor.

Rather than just vibrate, the SOL’s inner core actually pumps up and down, like a thumping, tapping motion. This design is meant to be used “gently” on the clitoris, rather than pressing hard to get stronger vibrations. In other words, it is less powerful the harder you press it into the body.

It is actually really cool to watch it move in and out. The first time I turned it on, I was like, “Wow, this is different!” If you haven’t seen it in action, check out the video to see why it is so different than anything else on the market.

 How Does this Feel Different?

The SOL features three small buttons at the base: one to turn it on, one to speed it up and one to turn it down. They work as expected and are fairly easy to use and find, even under the covers, once you know where they are at.

The SOL has three lower speeds and 3 OM higher speeds. The speeds control how fast the inner core pumps in and out. But, the most powerful setting is speed number 3, in the lower settings, which pumps slower, but with more intense action and force.

The lower settings feel thumpy and are deeper penetrating, while the higher speeds are more buzzy and light. So, very different sensations depending on what setting you use. The lower settings feel more like the pad of a finger or a tongue, tapping quickly against the clitoris.

I found the number 3 setting felt the best for me, but enjoyed trying all the settings. I started on the low settings for a warm up and massaged my vulva, then went up through to the top settings. When I came to my clitoris, I went back down to the number 3 setting. I found it powerful enough for great clitoral stimulation and again, the feeling was unlike anything else I have ever tried.

Attachments

The inner core pops out of the SOL body and then you can remove the head attachments for different sensations. The attachments make a big difference in the way the vibrations feel against the body.

The SOL comes with 3 attachments and 2 more you can buy separately. The 3 main attachments are the Rose, Ever and Fawn. The Rose is smooth, convex and button shaped and felt like a very broad massager which was great for all over body massage. The Ever is a ridged concave shape which felt similar to the Rose, but with more sensation. The Fawn is like silicone bristles and had the strongest stimulation, rather odd feeling, but pleasurable.

The 2 separate attachments are the Niko and the Cona. Niko is nipple shaped and provides more precise stimulation, whereas the Cona is cone-shaped and concave, which feels like a sucking action.

I preferred the Niko, Cona and Fawn attachments myself, and enjoyed trying the different sensations they provided.

Revel Body_1Best Bath Ever

Now, here is something you can’t do with an ordinary vibrator. Submerge it in water and it will create an actual sucking action. WAY COOL! I was blown away. When they say “Best Bath Ever” they mean it, and I may be addicted to bath time fun forever. And, it does all this sucking without even touching your body.

Rechargeable

Even better still, the SOL is a rechargeable massager, which features a magnetic charging base which plugs in to a USB on your computer, laptop, etc. It takes about 90 minutes for a full charge and glows and pulses until recharged. The SOL also blinks when you first turn it on to let you know how much charge is left on it.

Travel Bag

Revel Body also sent me a nice little travel bag for the SOL, which can be purchased separately. It is very pretty and looks like a cosmetic case. Packs up the SOL, recharger, and attachments perfectly and you are ready to jet off anywhere for a pleasurable VaCa!

Get ready for some pumping, thumping, pulsating pleasure! Plus, come with a two year warranty as an added guarantee. SOLD!

Thank you to Revel Body for providing the SOL Vibrator for review and giveaways!

Unleash The Beast – Review Of Bathmate Hydromax X40 Xtreme Penis Pump

In the world of penis pumps, there is a big difference between the quality and value of some products. When Bathmate first came out with their products a few years ago, I could tell just by looking at them that they were in a different ball park altogether.

Bathmate was the first product of its kind to use water instead of air to pump with. A very novel idea, and one that makes the Hydromax pumps very comfortable to use and allows for more powerful suction. Of course, the Hydromax can be used with air as well, but if you had the choice, why would you?

The Bathmate Hydromax X40 Xtreme Penis Pump comes with a Value Accessories Pack which includes: Carry Case with Security Lock, Measuring Gauge, Cleaning Kit, Bathmate Towel and Sponge, Handball Pump and Power Hose, Water Based Lubricant, Shower Strap, and Comfort Insert Pad.

I was blown away by the quality of this kit. The case is gorgeous, discreet, sturdy and very manly. It looks like something you could bring to a locker room, or like a large posh shaving kit. As soon as I saw it I had visions of the Village People singing “YMCA” while guys stroked themselves off with it in a locker room with shower stalls. I’m not sure why…

The kit has a hard shell covered by a matt, silky feeling material, all black with a large sturdy zipper. Inside there are several storage pockets and then the main case for your pump and other accessories. The carrying case is also perfect for storage, and is so discreet you could leave it out in plain sight.

The X40 Xtreme Penis Pump

The X40 Xtreme is the largest pump in the Xtreme Collection with a total length of 13.5” and an insertable length of 10.5”. The chamber’s circumference was between 9.25” at the base and narrowing to 8.25” nearest the top. It is designed for big boys (7” or more) who want to get even bigger. It is also 15% larger than the X30 Xtreme.

The clear chamber is made out of very sturdy, strong plastic and features a measuring gauge up the length of it. The base features a bellows pump made of elastomer and an insertable comfort pad made from plastic with and softer elastomer that goes against the pelvis. The bellows allows you to position the pump against the body and pull it closer for better suction.

New to the Xtreme Collection is the Hand Pump Attachment that goes on the top end of the pump. It features a tube attachment and squeeze ball which is used to suction the water from the pump once in place and creates the vacuum effect. The squeeze ball is again very sturdy, yet flexible enough that a woman can squeeze it, so you don’t have to be Hercules to use this pump. Which is great for men who may have less hand strength, or arthritis. The hand pump is detachable and comes with a 15.5” hose.

Unleash the Beast

My sweetheart of a partner Chris volunteered to be the guinea pig for this review. Thank goodness, because I don’t have a penis. I was very curious to see a pump in action though and of course helped him with the whole process.

First, you will want to run a nice hot bath. The water creates a stronger vacuum and the heat helps to relax the blood vessels in the penis.

If you have a hairy pelvis and penis, I recommend having a close shave before using any penis pump, or you will not get the seal you need for suction. We tried it first without shaving, and while it did suction, the seal kept breaking after we got it pumped up a bit.

The pump comes with Pjur water-based lubricant. While Pjur is a good lubricant, I’m not sure why they would include water-based lube with a product that is going to be used in the water, because it just dissolves. So, I would recommend a thick silicone based lubricant to create a better seal which won’t wash away in the water.

Chris unleashed his beast and we got the pump in place over his flaccid penis (leave the balls out) with squeeze bulb and hose attached. It says to use the pump when not erect or semi-erect, but you can also use it with a hard-on after you’ve gotten used to it. However, it is not meant to be a masturbation tool, but a penis enlargement device. It was easy to pump and I pumped it for him while he laid back in the tub and observed.

This was both our first time ever using a pump, so we were a bit hesitant at first. Chris was worried that we may pump it too hard, as we had heard stories about men getting bruising and even blisters when using penis pumps too aggressively. And, yes this CAN and DOES happen, so use common sense and caution when using a penis pump. Don’t over pump, or pump aggressively, or use the pump for more than 15- 20 minutes.

Our concerns were unwarranted however, and everything went smoothly. The pump was easy to squeeze and I don’t have a lot of physical hand strength, so I think just about anyone could use this easily. Once the seal was in place, the pump began sucking water from the pump and creating a strong vacuum. We watched as his penis grew with each squeeze which was fun.

We used the pump for about 15 minutes, and his penis did look a feel a bit more “pumped up” than usual. However, this effect doesn’t last long. With continued use of 15 minutes daily, Bathmate says you can permanently increase your penis size from about ½” or more in 1-3 months.

“Vacuum pumps (also called penis pumps, vacuum constriction devices or VCDs) are a useful and non-evasive way to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) over surgery, implants, injections or medications. However, it is important to discuss available treatments with your doctor first to find out which treatment is best for you. The purchase of vacuum devices for treatment of ED may also be covered by medical insurance if it has been first documented as a medical condition.

Penis pumps can be an effective treatment for ED if the underlying cause is insufficient blood flow to the penis to cause an erection. They are also an effective treatment for ED for men who have Diabetes, after surgery for colon or prostate cancer and for men who suffer from anxiety or depression. According to Webmd, “Studies suggest that about 50%-80% of men are satisfied with the results of VCDs.”–Sextoy.com Pleasure Guide

Ian Chambers from Mediplus notes “that some men may notice an increased girth with regular use of a penis pump, however, increased length beyond your natural size is unlikely. On the other hand, men who have lost length from surgery or from not getting regular erections, may see an increase to their normal length before surgery or ED, with continued use.”—Mediplus

One thing I’d like to note is that although the instructions are beautifully printed on slick sturdy paper, like a brochure, the instructions themselves were a bit hard to figure out for first time users. There are drawings showing you how to use it as well as written instructions, but I still had to read it over several times to figure it out. I don’t know, maybe I’m just dense, but I think the instructions could be better. Also, the text is white on a black background which made it a bit harder to read. But, then I’m the kind of girl who half reads the instructions, and then throws them aside and tries to figure it out myself, because I just hate instructions. Looking back, the process of putting the pump together and using it was very simple, so we over-analyzed it too much. And, it didn’t mention shaving, which I DO recommend.

Overall, this is a top of the line product. If I was in to penis pumping on a regular basis, it would definitely be my only choice for a pump. It is far superior to many of the other pumps I’ve seen and is a quality product.

Thank you to OfficialHydromaxPump.com for providing the product for this review.

Liberator Wedge – Review & GIVEAWAY!

ENTER TO WIN YOUR OWN WEDGE TODAY! Winners announced mid-December 2014.

Did you ever notice how porn stars seem to make circus-like sex positions look easy? There’s the “Butter Churner” which is a neck breaker, the “Spider” which requires six-pack abs, the “Standing Wheel Barrow” for gymnasts with strong arms, and of course, the “Pinball Wizard” which is a real pain in the back .

Luckily for those of us who are not Cirque du Soleil performers or porn stars, there is also Liberator Shapes, by Liberator.

Why Liberator Shapes?

There are many reasons why you may want to include Liberator Shapes into your bedroom.

  • To be able to get into more complicated positions without sacrificing comfort.
  • To be able to perform more advanced sex positions without getting cramps, fatigue, sore muscles, or losing stamina.
  • So your guy doesn’t have a heart attack while trying to hold your butt up in position.
  • For seniors or persons with physical challenges or those who suffer from chronic pain who can’t get into comfortable sex positions or maintain them for any length of time.
  • Because one partner is much taller than the other making any position difficult.
  • Because standard Missionary Position rarely gets a woman off.
  • Because regular pillows really suck for sex positions.
  • Because they are fun and can help spice up your sex life.

 

Wedge 2

The Liberator Wedge

The Liberator Wedge is one of Liberator’s most standard shapes. It is one of the most affordable as well as one of the most versatile. It can be used solo or combined with other shapes for advanced positions.

It is a wedge-shaped cushion made of very sturdy high density foam that supports the body while keeping its shape, rather than squishing flat or sinking into the bed. It measures 14” L x 24” W x 7” H, more than large enough to wedge under your butt or hips so you can assume the position. It comes with a soft microfiber cover that has a moisture-resistant liner and is also removable and machine-washable. The cover comes in a variety of fashionable colors and prints to match any bedroom style. Liberator uses eco-compressed packaging (vacuum compression) which reduces the shipping size and their carbon footprint by 90%. Yeah, Liberator! I love companies who think “green” and smart.

How Does it Work?

Using the Wedge is not very complicated. You position it where you want it and wedge it underneath yours or your partner’s hips, butt or belly, to get into various positions. These include advanced missionary and doggie style, cowgirl or boy positions, oral and anal sex positions, as well as advanced positions that facilitate G-spot and P-spot stimulation. The Wedge supports many positions well without losing shape, while maintaining comfort.

Wedge 3

My partner is 6’ 2”, while I am just over 5”. Yes, we make a cute couple. But, in bed we often find it hard to get into positions where we are both comfortable. And, let’s face it; we are not 20 years old anymore! So, the Wedge was a fantastic addition to our bedroom gear that has allowed us to get into many positions we couldn’t even do before and also stay in positions much longer. Believe me, there is nothing worse than your hamstrings cramping just as you are about to orgasm! Also, my partner has arthritis in his back, so using the Wedge has helped alleviate pressure on his back and back pain. Not to mention that he doesn’t need to hold my butt up now to aid in enhanced penetration.

I highly recommend the Wedge by Liberator for couples who want to get into better, more complicated positions, without looking like idiots or sacrificing comfort. Even if you don’t suffer from back pain, or have other difficulties, the Wedge is great for allowing for intimate positioning that better facilitates sexual pleasure and orgasms for her, which is a big bonus.

Wedge 4

While you may not be able to have sex like a porn star with the Wedge, Liberator Shapes can definitely perk up your sex life by improving stamina and comfort, as well as allowing for a better variety of sex positions and added excitement.

Your Sexy Guide to Body Safe Lubricants – Part 2

Last week, in my article Your Sexy Guide to Body Safe Lubricants – Part 1 I talked about some of the not-so-nice chemicals that can go into personal sexual lubricants.  Thankfully, most lube manufacturers heard the roar of the consumer and jumped on the “natural”, “green” and body-safe product movement, which is great for us.

Most lube manufacturers now omit parabens and glycerin from their products, or have special products for sensitive skin.  But, there were a few companies that did this right from the beginning and make all their products body-safe, and here they are.

These Are a Few of My Favorite Lubes!
Aloe Cadabra

Aloe Cadabra (Natural) is a truly superior personal lubricant made from 95% organic Aloe and other natural ingredients.  It claims to be “a magical liquid gel for intimate pleasures” and while not magical, it just may be the best lube I have ever tried.

Aloe Vera, as you know is a small succulent plant that has been used for its healing properties since like, forever.  Both Cleopatra and Nefertiti were said to have used Aloe on their skin to enhance their beauty.

Aloe Vera contains “mannans, lectins and anthraquinones, all of which are thought to support healing and promote wellbeing.  Topical application of the gel is thought to reduce inflammation and skin irritation, by soothing the epidermis… [and] has antiseptic properties which can assist in reducing infection for minor skin complaints.”—The Health Benefits of Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe Cadabra’s main ingredient is Aloe Vera, so it is incredibly soothing on the skin.  This lubricant feels very natural, just like a woman’s own body fluids and is silky smooth.  Aloe Cadabra’s formula is pH balanced to the vagina’s pH so will not disrupt the vagina’s natural environment.  It didn’t get sticky at all when I used it and lasted quite long time.  All the ingredients are food grade, so it is not harmful if ingested.  This means it is just as good for oral sex as it is for penetrative sex and masturbation.  It has no discernible flavor and a slightly clean pleasant odor.

Aloe Cadabra contains no parabens, sugars, chemicals or glycerins.  What it does contain is all natural body-safe ingredients including 95 percent certified organic aloe vera, citric acid, xanthan gum (a polysaccharide used as a food additive), vanilla essential oils, potassium sorbate (a food preservative) and sodium benzoate (a preservative, which limits the growth of bacteria and fungi).  All the ingredients rated extremely low (1-2 out of 10) in the Cosmetic Database.

PS: Aloe Cadabra also makes natural flavored lubes.  Review coming soon!

Sliquid Water-based Organic Lubricant

Sliquid Water-based Organic Lubricant is an excellent product that is safe to use with all materials.  It has no taste and has a slightly fresh organic smell that is barely noticeable.  It is a very thin lube that makes a slick surface on the skin that is perfect for toy play or intercourse.  Like most water-based lubes it does dry up, but does not become sticky.  If it does dry up during use, you need to simply reapply or emulsify with water.

It is made with all botanical and natural organic ingredients such as Aloe, Flax, Vitamin E and Green Tea.  Best of all, it is glycerine and paraben free, and does not contain propylene glycol & glycerol, sugars or artificial sweeteners.  In addition it is vegan-friendly, American-made and the bottle is 100% recyclable.

Ingredients:

Purified Water, Plant Cellulose (from Cotton), Aloe Barbadensis*, Natural Tocopherols (Vitamin E), Cyamopsis (Guar Conditioners), Extracts of Hibiscus*, Flax*, Green Tea* & Sunflower Seed*, Citric Acid (Citrus Fruits), Phenoxyethanol (Rose Ether).

Blossom Organics Natural Moisturizing Lubricant

Blossom Organics Natural Moisturizing Lubricant is just what is says: Pure and Simple.  It has no harsh chemicals including parabens, petroleum by products, hormones, flavors or fragrances.  The main ingredient is Aloe, which has long been revered for its soothing, moisturizing, and healing properties.  This lube is also water-based so does not contain silicone.  Water-based lubes are the only ones that can be truly “natural”.

The lube itself is clear, odorless and I couldn’t discern any taste what-so-ever.  The consistency is between a liquid and a gel, but more thick than runny.  Actually, it is very close to natural female juices.  It feels great on the skin, like natural Aloe Vera right from the plant and absorbs into the skin like a moisturizer.

For a sexual aid with vaginal sex or masturbation, it performed very well, and lasted for as long as I needed it and did not get sticky.  Like any water-based lube, if you need more just reapply.

Overall, a super sexcellent personal lubricant for women.

INGREDIENTS: Organic aloe barbadensis leaf extract, sorbitol, hydroxyethylcellulose, hyaluronic acid, organic stevia rebaudiana extract, tocopherol (vitamin E), sodium citrate, potassium sorbate, organic extracts of paeonia albiflora (peony) root & passiflora incarnata flower.

Intimate Organics

Intimate Organics Hydra Lube is a water-based lube made with a blend of organic extracts including aloe, Goji Berry fruit extract, and lemon grass.  IO Hydra is extremely slick and silky for a water-based lubricant, naturally nourishing the skin, and lasts longer than most water-based lubes.  It is the perfect lubricant for using with sex toys, for as we know, sex toys tend to be a bit drying, and it is of course compatible with any toy material.  Hydra also makes a great lube for partner sex and enhances penetration by staying slick until it naturally absorbs into the skin.

Hydra is almost completely odorless but has a slightly tangy, bitter aloe flavor, which reminds me a slight cosmetic taste. It is paraben, animal glycerin and DEA free, vegan, cruelty free, and made with certified organic extracts.

Ingredients:

Aqua/Water/Eau, Propanediol (Natural Humectant), Cellulose Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic Acid, Phenethyl Alcohol, PPG 2 Methyl Ether, Methylisothiazolinone, Alcohol, Lycium Barbarum (Goji) Fruit Extract, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Extract, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Extract, Sodium Hydroxide.

So, those are my top four body-safe lubes that you can get in North America.  I omitted a few lubes on this list because they are hard to get in the US or were not “natural” water-based, but still good lubes.  These include Hathor Aphrodisia Lubricant Pure (Canada), Yes! Lubricant (UK) and Uber Lube (Silicone & Vitamin E).

Please note:

This article is from a woman’s perspective and about the best lubes (as I see it) for vaginas and vulvas.  Just because I personally am partial to water-based lubes, doesn’t mean that silicone lubes are bad.  Silicone lubes are great for all kinds of sexy scenarios; I only prefer water-based lubes on my genitals because they are more compatible with the vagina’s natural flora and are also moisturizing which soothes the vulva and helps prevent vaginal atrophy.

I hope I have inspired you to treat your body nice and only use body-safe products.  Remember to read labels and research ingredients lists to make sure what you are using, eating or putting in and on your body are safe.  Now if only someone could come up with an aphrodisiac smoothy that is great for sex!

Happy Orgasms!

Using Condoms: Safer Sex Is Sexy!

We all know condoms are sexy, because they prevent the transmission of STDs and HIV, which are not sexy at all.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that: “Latex condoms, when used consistently and correctly, are highly effective in preventing the sexual transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS [and] other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).”

But here are some more sexy tips to make sure you are using condoms correctly as well as the different types you can use. This article is about male condoms, but there are also female condoms and dentals dams that can be used for penetrative or oral sex on ladies.

Boy Condoms

The basic male condom is a thin, often clear stretchy tube (insert penis here). Male condoms come in various different sizes, shapes, textures, flavors, lubed and un-lubed. Most are made of latex, but for people with latex allergies there are also condoms made of medical-grade polyurethane or polyisoprene. However, avoid Natural Lambskin condoms if you want to avoid STDs as they only protect against getting pregnant.

Size Matters!

In the case of male condoms, choosing the right size is very important. Condoms sizes vary in length from 3” to 11.9”. Rule of dick: If the condom is too tight it might break, and if it is too loose and it may slip off during sex. Not cool.

Add Sensation

One of the biggest complaints about using condoms is that users lose sensitivity with their hot sexy package enveloped in latex. However, there are extra-thin condoms made for guys who find regular condoms too thick. Comfort fit or Extra Head Room condoms provide more movement around the head of the penis which also aids in added stimulation for sensation junkies. And, for girls, there are lots of condoms that will turn his dick into a French tickler with various textures like ribbed and studded to give you added pleasure. For guys and gals, there are sensation play condoms that have stimulating lubrication that can cool, tingle or heat up.

Flavored Condoms

For fellatio, there are lots of flavored condoms that can make oral sex much more tasty. However, I would not recommend using flavored condoms for penetration as many contain glycerin (sugars) that are not compatible with the vagina’s flora. And, while they may not have come out with a bacon flavored condom yet, there is bacon flavored lube which is compatible with latex condoms. Finally!

So condoms don’t have to be boring. Think of them as an additional pleasure object to include in your arsenal of sexy play toys.

To Lubricate or Not, That is the Question

Lubricated or non-lubricated? Which is best? Well that really depends on the person and the type of sex you are having. If using condoms for oral sex, lubrication might taste gross, unless they are flavored. However, for vaginal and anal sex, lubricated condoms can be ideal, especially if you don’t happen to carry a bottle of lube around with you. Beware, however of Nonoxynol-9 (or N-9). It is a spermicide that is used to aid in preventing unwanted pregnancies, and is sometimes added to lubricated condoms. However, Nonoxynol-9 has been shown to irritate the cells in the vagina or rectum causing tiny tears in the mucus membranes which could potentially increase the risk of getting an STD or an infection, including increased chances of getting the HIV virus. Check labels and avoid condoms with N-9.

Condom Tips
  • Check the expiry date of your condom as they break down over time and become less effective. Stored correctly, non-lubricated condoms should last 5 years.
  • Store condoms in a cool, dry place (not in your wallet).   Specially made condom cases like Durex’s Love Case are perfect for storing condoms in your purse.
  • Only use water-based or silicone personal lubricants that are specifically made for sexual intercourse. Do not use oil-based lubricants as they can break down the condom and cause bacterial infections in the vagina.
  • Do not use teeth, fingernails or scissors to open a condom as you could puncture it with holes making it useless. That is why they have the zigzag seals: KISS!
  • Use a condom each and every time you have sexual intercourse with someone you are not “fluid-bonded” with during vaginal, anal sex and male oral sex (fellatio) from start to finish to protect against STDs. The most common mistake people make is to use a condom AFTER sexual activity has already started.
  • Never reuse a condom. You would think this is obvious, but people still do it. So use a new unopened condom every time you have sex regardless whether it is with the same person or someone else. If, for some reason your remove the condom before ejaculation, use a new one before continuing intercourse. Condoms are cheap. Your health is priceless.
  • Do not use the same condom with multiple partners. Again, the same goes. Use a new condom with each new partner even if you are having sex with multiple partners at once.
  • Do not put a condom on inside-out as it is more likely to tear or slip during intercourse. This is one of the most common mistakes when using a condom. The condom rolled up rim should be on the outside and should fit over the head of the penis like a little cap.
  • If the condom breaks, withdraw immediately and throw away. Use a new condom. Obs!
How to Put on a Condom Correctly

If you don’t put on a condom correctly, chances are it is not going to work properly to protect you. This is the number ONE mistake most people make with condoms. Apply a small amount of lubricant inside the condom at the tip to prevent breakage. If the guy is uncircumcised, pull back the foreskin when putting on the condom. This will prevent pulling of the foreskin, will aid in sensitivity and help create a proper fit.

Place the rolled-up condom (rolled rim out) over the erect penis head, gently pinching the reservoir tip to remove any air. If the condom doesn’t have a reservoir tip, leave a half-inch space for ejaculate.

Hold the tip of the condom, while gently unrolling the entire condom down the length of the penis to the base, smoothing out air bubbles as you go to maintain a proper fit and avoid tearing during penetration. Use a small amount of lubricant to apply to the tip of the condom on the outside to aid in penetration and to avoid breakage.

condom correctly

Removing a Condom Correctly

Removing a condom properly is just as important as putting it on properly and is one of the most common mistakes when using a condom. After ejaculation before the penis becomes soft, hold the condom at the base to withdraw the penis, ensuring the condom doesn’t slip off. Gently peel the used condom down and remove from the penis head, keeping the semen inside.

Sexy Condom Trick—Putting a Condom on with Your Mouth!

I once saw Midori put a condom on a dildo with her mouth at a workshop and it was uber sexy. Here’s how you can learn to do this yourself.

If you don’t own a dildo, use a banana for practice. Make sure to apply a generous amount of lip gloss to your mouth and use a non-lubricated condom for this trick.

Open the condom and place with the reservoir tip facing in, into your mouth, lips slightly parted, with the ring just in front of your teeth. Open your mouth into an “O” shape and place the head of the banana in the condom, in your mouth. Use your tongue to apply pressure to the condom to the roof of your mouth so it doesn’t fill with air when “going down”. Use your lips to roll the condom down the shaft. Make sure your teeth don’t scrape the condom or tear it. Finally, smooth your lips up and down the shaft to squeeze excess air out of the condom. Do this nice a slow and sexy.

Now try it with a real penis.

Not convinced you can do this? Check out this video with sexpert, Dr. Sue Johanson. If she can do it, so can you!
