Review: Fun Factory Mr Boss Realistic Hybrid Vibrator

When Fun Factory released their hybrid range I was desperate to get my hands on one. I love rechargeable vibrators and find myself leaning towards them 95% of the time so battery-operated vibrators often get overlooked. With this, I have the option to recharge the batteries it comes with so I’m not constantly having to buy new ones or search the house for triple a’s in the heat of the moment. This is much friendlier to the environment and for that reason I think the Hybrid Kit is a must-have buy if you are purchasing the Darling Devil, Wicked Wings, Abby G, Diva Dolphin or the toy I’m reviewing today, Mr Boss.

Fun Factory use the same style of packaging for all of their products. It’s classic and simple with a hint of luxury thrown in. It has an outer cardboard sleeve showing off a glossy product shot over the top of a plain gold cardboard box. This opens to reveal the vibrator alongside a small user leaflet and the click-n-charge manual that comes with all of their rechargeable products. They don’t include any storage pouches, which is one of the only downsides to this brand.

Mr Boss doesn’t come with a charging cable as this is a battery-operated vibrator that needs to be combined with the above mentioned Hybrid Kit in order to become rechargeable. Following the instructions, I removed the base of the vibrator and inserted the two batteries from the kit as directed. I then placed the base back on and plugged the USB into my laptop. From there, I attached the magnetic clip on the cable to the corresponding prongs on the base and waited for the lights to turn on.

The minus button will have a blinking light to begin with. This indicates that the battery life is between 0 and 33%. When that light becomes steady, the blinking light will appear on the plus button. This means that the battery has reached between 33% and 66% charged. After this turns steady a final blinking light will appear on the fun button. This indicates a battery level of 66-99% charged. When the fun buttons light goes solid, the toy has reached 100%.

It is made from Fun Factory’s signature silicone, which is non-toxic, hypoallergenic and completely body-safe. I have noticed that their silicone tends to have a lot more drag (a rougher surface with more friction) than many other brands, so I would recommend being generous with the water based lubricant when using the Mr Boss or any of their other products. I would also recommend rinsing thoroughly before each use as this material attracts ridiculous amounts of lint and fluff. It’s fully waterproof so rinsing under warm water is not an issue and should be done afterwards with soap too.

To control the Mr Boss, press and hold the fun button for a couple of seconds to turn on. To explore the four intensities press the + button. After the highest intensity has been reached, the next tap of the + button takes you to the next function. There are six different vibration modes to choose from. I stick to the constant vibration setting as I personally find patterns off-putting. If you want to go back an intensity or function then press the – button. To turn off, press the fun button.

From the measurements given in the description on the Lovehoney website this sounded like a medium/average sized vibrator. It has eight and a half inches in overall length and six inches insertable. I thought that it looked quite slim upon arrival so I double checked the measurements myself and there is indeed five inches of girth around the widest point although I still think it looks less than. I’m not sure if this is due to the squish of the silicone, the tapered tip or the fact that I’m used to its older sibling, the Big Boss. I would be able to recommend it to those who are fairly new to toys and penetration as it’s not as thick or bulging as I expected.

Described as realistic, I expected more from this. It has a prominent head and some minimal texture around the base of the shaft but there is nothing going on in between. I personally would have liked to have seen some extra veins between the two for added sensation and realism. I’m not keen on overly realistic toys but I think this toy could have done with some added features. It looks almost half-hearted as it is and doesn’t offer much in terms of stimulation. The head has some definition to it which feels great upon insertion but the subtle texture of the shaft didn’t do anything for me as it wasn’t pronounced enough.

It does have a gentle curve that follows the ridge under the head so I decided to give it a go in the hopes that it would stimulate the g-spot. I wasn’t expecting it to be the most successful encounter as the head has some squish to it, but when I got down to business and began thrusting with it, I noticed that it did have some firmness to it that was capable of hitting the right spots. If I do this motion in conjunction with some high intensity vibrations then I can orgasm fairly easily. I would say that the vibrations got buzzier as the intensity increased but not in an irritating, off-putting or numbing sort of way.

I then tried to use it clitorally but I didn’t have much success with it that way. It seems that most of the vibrations are focused in the lower portion of the shaft and don’t travel as well as I’d like so I have to awkwardly hold the shaft up against my clitoris to get a feel for the vibrations. It’s not the most comfortable or precise way to stimulate this zone so I ended up giving up. There was little to no chance of me being able to get off with this awkward positioning. I’ll be sticking to using the Mr Boss for internal use and hoping I can get my hands on one of their new dual stimulators for clitoral use.

Overall, I enjoyed using the Mr Boss but I think I prefer the larger version, the Big Boss. The Big Boss feels more realistic to me, has rumblier vibrations and the sensations travel through the shaft better. I do think that the Mr Boss has some great qualities and fantastic things going for it though. It offers vibrations at a nice frequency, at a quiet volume, with a range of different intensities and functions. It is comfortable to hold, easy to control, body-safe and easy to clean up. On top of all that it is eco-friendly. What’s not to like? If you are looking for a semi-realistic vibrator from a trusted brand that can offer the possibility of g-spot contact then I’d be happy to recommend this to you. If you prefer a step-up in size and more intense vibrations then I’d opt for the Big Boss instead.

You can purchase the Fun Factory Mr Boss Realistic Vibrator (£69.99) and the Fun Factory Hybrid Battery Kit (£17.99) from Lovehoney. I received both of these products free of charge in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!

Review: Javida Nubby Vibe with Clit Stimulator

Have you ever seen a dual stimulator with nubs on each arm before? Because I hadn’t. When I spotted the Javida Nubby Vibe with Clit Stimulator on Orion’s website I was rather curious. I wasn’t sure what to make of this vibrator initially but I just knew that I had to try it for myself and find out what those nubs felt like. I was itching to know. I had tried one other Javida product before, their heated massager, so I knew that I had a good quality product on the way but I didn’t know whether the nubs would be fun and stimulating or uncomfortable and boner killing material. Read on to find out whether the nubby was a painful experience or a pleasurable one.

Javida Nubby Vibe with Clit StimulatorThe packaging was similar to what I encountered before, it just had a different colour scheme. There’s a black and red box that is decorated with floral graphics and features key product information in the back and sides. The front of this box has a magnetic flap that can be opened up to reveal the vibrator behind a window of plastic which is a lovely touch. Inside, I found the vibrator, generic instruction leaflet and the required charging cable. My only complaint is the lack of storage bag as I think that’s a must-have extra once the price tag reaches £50+.

Javida’s Nubby Vibe is made from hypoallergenic, non-toxic, body-safe silicone and the handle is made from a robust abs plastic that has been coated with polyurethane. This just makes the handle softer and more comfortable to hold. This toy does not contain latex or phthalates and seems to be well-made and nicely designed. I was once again impressed with the feel of the silicone as the incredibly smooth surface feels delightful to the touch and has the smallest amount of drag possible. It should be used with lubricant for comfort regardless of the amount of drag it has or hasn’t got and this should be water based as to not degrade the silicone. Neither the box nor the website description mentions whether this product is waterproof so I haven’t risked it and have been cleaning it with antibacterial toy wipes instead of soapy water.

Javida Nubby Vibe with Clit StimulatorSo this vibrator is rechargeable via USB. I placed that end of the cable into my laptop and attached the magnetic clips on the other end to the corresponding prongs on the rear of the Nubby. Whilst it is charging a red light will flash on the control panel and this becomes steady once complete. It takes roughly an hour and a half to charge the device fully and this is said to provide around forty minutes of use on the highest intensity and around sixty minutes on the medium to low functions.

There’s only one button on this toy so it’s really simple to use. The button is located just under the clitoral arm and needs to be pressed and held for three to five seconds to turn the vibrations on. A light will turn on once the toy is in use. Tap the button again to cycle through the various settings and press and hold it down for a few seconds to turn off. There are ten functions to choose from. Three constant speeds of varying intensities and seven patterns.

Javida Nubby Vibe with Clit StimulatorI think this is one of the smallest dual stimulators or “rabbits” that I have in my collection at the moment. It is 7.2 inches in overall length with an insertable shaft of around 3.9 inches. This is pretty short for an internal arm as most are around the four and half to five and a half-inch mark.

Having said that, I think that this makes the Nubby a very viable option for a beginner. I generally don’t recommend this type of toy to someone who’s just starting out as I think you need to know your body and anatomy well to find the ones that work for you, but if you’re a beginner with a similar layout to my body, then I’d point you this way. It has a maximum girth of just under 3.9 inches which is pretty slim and manageable.

Dual stimulators are completely anatomy dependent so I wasn’t shocked at all when the fit of this one wasn’t the best that I’ve encountered. I know that shorter external arms are generally a good bet for me as my clitoris and entrance are quiet close together and I don’t need much  length to reach it. It rests at just about at the right spot although an extra inch or two of length would have made the arm line up perfectly. It sits covering half of this sweet spot as it is which means I can’t get maximum sensation from the vibrations or texture. This leaves me with the feeling that I need more and I can’t shake it off. As a result, the Nubby feels underwhelming and half-hearted.

Javida Nubby Vibe with Clit StimulatorIt is disappointing that this is the case as I cannot fault the internal arm. It has everything I could want. A bulbous head, angled shaft and enough firmness to satisfy the inner diva of my g-spot. The nubby texture provides some extra stimulation and feels wonderful when using it in a circular motion to massage the g-spot.

The first setting was rumbly which is my preference and I could find myself getting along with this one. Unfortunately it didn’t have the amount of power I needed on the lowest intensity so I turned it up and then a swarm of buzzy, higher frequency vibrations erupted.

I don’t think these settings feel terrible, but I’m not fond of the buzzing as I find it distracting. I ended up using the rabbit without the vibrations with the internal arm working on my g-spot and a strategically placed We-Vibe Tango working on my clitoris. I could orgasm like this just fine. I tried again a few days later with the vibrations on and found myself being more tolerable of the internal vibrations on that occasion. So I now feel like I will be able to use this occasionally as intended but only on days that I’m not feeling over sensitive and have already penetrated with something else beforehand. I couldn’t just jump in with this if I hadn’t used an internal toy for a week or so as my g-spot would be too alert to cope with the buzzing.

As the Javida Nubby Vibe has two motors, I was expecting it to be noisy. It wasn’t. Even if I used the highest intensity, the sound could be easily drowned out with a duvet and a closed bedroom door. I wouldn’t and don’t mind using this when others are present in the house so for that reason I’d be happy to point people who need discretion in the direction of this nubby little number.

You can purchase the Javida Nubby Vibe with Clit Stimulator (€54.95/£50.65) from Orion. I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!

Review: Furry Fantasy Bunny Tail Butt Plug

I recently found myself in somewhat of a frustrating situation at the hands of a company that shall not be named. They pulled out of doing a giveaway at the last-minute leaving me with no back up plan for the giveaway I had been wanting to do for months. Thankfully, a fellow sex blogger, RandomRedRose stepped in and posted a tweet asking if any companies would be willing to help out and as a result of that, Charlie (from charlielee.eu) got in touch and said he could sort something out. We decided on the Furry Fantasy Bunny Tail Butt Plug in Black and he kindly offered me one of my own to review. I have so much appreciation for Charlie for helping us out with this, so please go and show him some love by checking out his store and following him on social media to be the first to know about hot new offers.

Furry Fantasy Black Bunny Tail Butt PlugThe packaging for this product is very understated and simple. It comes in a velvet drawstring pouch with a simple tag attached. It doesn’t give much information other than the two materials used within this plug but I don’t think anything else was actually needed. Inside the drawstring pouch I found a small resealable plastic bag housing the plug which had been wrapped in tissue paper and a polystyrene like pouch for added protection. It may be basic in its presentation, but I maintained high hopes for its performance.

Furry Fantasy’s Bunny Tail Butt Plug is made from a shiny aluminium alloy. It feels smooth to the touch, is seamless and seemed to be finished well. It is free from latex and phthalates and feels high quality, especially considering the price tag. It hasn’t chipped or flaked at all which makes me confident in stating that this is non-toxic and body-safe. It can be used with any type of lubricant, which is great news for me as I like to use silicone based options with butt toys, although I didn’t want to risk staining the faux fur so I’ve stuck with water based so far. I have been using a 10% bleach solution to clean the plug and so far this has done me well. I’ve had no problems.

Size wise, I’d class this in the range between beginner and intermediate. I have a fair amount of anal experience, be that with my partner and with sex toys, so this was more than suitable for me. If you can take two fingers in your butt comfortably, then this plug should be fine for you. It is 4.72 inches in overall length, but only 2.95 inches are actually insertable. This is quite short for a plug and definitely more in the beginners realm of comfort. As for the girth, it measured in at 3.1 inches at the tip and 4.3 inches around the widest point of the bulb.

Furry Fantasy Black Bunny Tail Butt PlugThe Furry Fantasy Bunny Tail Butt Plug was designed in a classic shape. The traditional and very popular teardrop. This means that there’s a pointed/tapered tip with a rounded body and a slender neck. It has an all important circular base (with faux fur attached) that is wider than the neck to prevent unwanted travel.

You should never use anything anally that doesn’t have some form of sturdy flared base as it could end up getting lost and that would create an uncomfortable (and potentially painful) trip to hospital to get it located and removed.

As I mentioned above, the size was very manageable for me. I found that the plug was easy to insert with a small helping of lube and comfortable to wear once in place. It hasn’t slipped out at all, despite me being used to bigger products and I have no doubts about the base whatsoever. It feels secure and keeps the plug firmly in place until I’m done with it. This plug isn’t large at all so I can wear it for longer periods of time, but sitting down with it in is not much of an option. It isn’t very comfortable and I feel like the tail gets all squashed which ruins the aesthetic. To sum it up, I can clean the house with it in, but it’s not a plug I’d wear to lounge around and get aroused in.

When I was younger, probably mid-teens, I was surrounded by people who thought that anything anal was “disgusting” and “gross” so I adapted myself to that situation and thought those same things. As I’ve gotten older and developed my own opinions and begun trying things out for myself, I discovered that anal was something that I actually really enjoyed. I’ve been experimenting for a few years now but surprisingly butt plugs haven’t come onto my radar until much later. I only started using/trying/buying them around seven or eight months ago and I had always gone back and forth about whether I should get one before that.

I had previously restricted my searches to the most bland, basic, stripped-back designs that I could find and ignored the bright and beautiful, eccentric and fetish types. When I eventually started using butt plugs and realising how fantastic they could be, my mind suddenly started remembering all of these ‘unusual’ plugs that I’d pushed to the back of the shelf and I found myself honing on in animal tails. I was drawn to ponies, cats and fox tails as these seemed to appeal to my inner pet the most, but I wanted to start off with something small and cute like a bunny tail so I didn’t shock myself into never trying a tail again.

Furry Fantasy Black Bunny Tail Butt PlugWhen I had inserted the Furry Fantasy Bunny Tail Butt Plug for the first time, I turned around to check out the tail in the mirror and immediately fell in love with the aesthetic. I thought it looked adorable and my partner agreed. He said that I have a small butt (in terms of cheek size) so the pert fluff of this tail looked well suited between my cheeks. We both agreed that it could be potentially buried between larger cheeks, so a fuller, fluffier tail may be better suited to those who have a butt that Nicki Minaj would envy.

I felt in my element when wearing this plug and I really hadn’t expected to feel that way. Something seemed to click in me that said I’d found something worthwhile, something that worked for me and knowing that I hadn’t even considered it until recently surprised me. I feel that since I’ve started sex blogging I have discovered a lot about myself and I think this particular product has allowed me to explore a fantasy that I never knew (or pretended I didn’t know) I had. I almost wished I had some matching ears and fluffy mittens to complete the look and get fully in the zone, but who knows? Maybe I’ll step up my game again in the coming months and indulge in some animal accessories.

Butt plugs can make the vaginal canal feel tighter during PIV which can be fun for both parties. My partner could notice a subtle difference although he said it wasn’t as obvious as it’s been with other plugs that I have used. I’m quite tight down there anyway as I’ve never had children and I do my kegels often, so I care more about the noticeable amount of pressure placed up against the back wall of my vagina than the sensation of tightness. It increases my chances of orgasm and helps me get off much faster during an act that doesn’t do a whole lot for me on its own. If I combine a clitoral vibrator with the feel of the cool plug and that pressure, I can be in heaven within around ten minutes.

You can purchase the Furry Fantasy Bunny Tail Black Butt Plug (€27.90/£25.67) from Charlie’s online store. I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!

Review: Broad City Precious Package Love Egg

When I heard the news that Lovehoney were going to be launching a Broad City sex toy collection at ANME, I was rather surprised. I had never expected or even thought about a collaboration between a sex toy company and a mainstream tv channel like Comedy Central before, but the surprise was a welcome one. My partner and I love to curl up at the end of the day and watch an episode or two of Broad City before engaging in an evening of fun and intimacy so this range seemed perfectly suited to us. If you’re a fan of the show like us then this range will be right up your street, but there should be something suitable for everyone who’s fond of bright and colorful sex toys.

Broad City Precious Package Love Egg VibratorThe packaging for this range is one of the first things that got my attention. It’s clean, clear and full of bright colours and sass. It definitely tickles my fancy and is super on point branding wise. The Precious Package Love Egg arrived in a white cardboard sleeve that had Broad City written across the top and image of the two stars of the show, Abbi and llana near the bottom. The back showed another picture of the pair along with some of their quotes and some basic product information regarding batteries, materials and cleaning.

I quite like the appearance of this love egg although I would have preferred it if there had been no pink involved. The controller is mostly black with a splash of pink detailing around the buttons, which actually looks great, and it reads ‘Carpe Dayum’ on the front and Broad City on the back. Attached to the controller is a medium length wire that connects to the bright pink egg. It’s not as in-your-face as the packaging or some of the other products from this collection, but it’s not the most basic design either. The only thing outside of the pink that I wasn’t crazy about was the seam on the egg. It felt noticeable at times if I’d scrimped on the lube.

Precious Package is made from a PU coated ABS Plastic. This coating makes the surface extremely smooth to the touch and reduces any drag that the plastic would ordinarily have. It feels almost matte-like and attracts barely any lint, dust or pet hair. I wouldn’t say that lubricant is essential during use as the egg is pretty petite, but for beginners or people who don’t produce much natural lubrication, a slather of the water-based bottled stuff may make insertion more comfortable and reduce the feel of the seam. After use, simply rinse off the egg and wash with soapy water. Don’t wet the controller though. This should just be wiped down as deemed necessary.

Broad City Precious Package Love Egg VibratorBattery wise, this toy takes two double A’s and these are placed inside the controller. Simply unscrew the base, place inside the compartment as directed and screw the base back on firmly. I found it easy to remove and replace which was unusual as these compartments are often stiff.

To start the vibrations press the up arrow on the remote. You can tap this button four times to take you throw the four available settings. The lights will turn on beside the numbers on the control panel to indicate which setting is being used. To cycle back down the vibrations or turn the toy off press the down arrow.

I have had a couple of Lovehoney’s wired love eggs before (this BASICS one and this Power Play one) and had been reasonably impressed on those occasions so I hoped this one would be on the same wavelength. The first setting was a good start. It was a tiny bit rumbly and very low-pitched but not tickle-like or weak in terms of intensity. It starts to pick up in strength from setting two but this is where the vibrations also start to become buzzy. I thought the last setting was hand-numbingly high frequency so I couldn’t even attempt to use this clitorally as I knew it would desensitize me and leave my clit tingling in the wrong ways.

Broad City Precious Package Love Egg VibratorThe egg was easy to insert as its small and slim so I think it should be more than manageable for beginners to sex toys or people who are completely new to vaginal penetration. It has a maximum girth of 3.4 inches and just 3 inches of length, which makes it a great option for newcomers. It also has a rounded tip to make insertion and wear comfortable. It’s a traditionally oval-shaped egg with no curves to it, do it doesn’t hit any internal sweet spots for me, but it does provide some good old vaginal stimulation which can be just as fun.

I have to admit that the Precious Package is not the strongest egg on the market and probably not even one of the strongest of its category, but I can see where it may have its place in a collection. I personally struggled to orgasm with it on its own so I asked my partner for assistance.

Broad City Precious Package Love Egg VibratorHe blindfolded me and took control of the remote which instantly improved the feel of the vibrations. I felt that being blindfolded increased my sensitivity and heightened the sensation to make the vibrations feel better than they usually would. There’s also the added excitement of not knowing what setting he’s going to use or whether he’s going to incorporate something else into the mix.

I believe the anticipation is what made the end result possible. I did end up reaching orgasm on those occasions that I was blindfolded with my partner in control so I’d say that this toy is definitely more of a couples experience for us than a solo use vibrator. The thrill was all in the tease. The vibrations just weren’t enough for me on their own, possibly because of the buzziness, so this toy didn’t really work without the element of surprise and suspense. It may be different for the non-power queens of the world and I’d love to hear about it if so, but I personally won’t be using it to masturbate with.

Broad City Precious Package Love Egg VibratorOverall, I like the aesthetics of the Precious Package, the branding is on point and it has easy to use controls, but it didn’t have the right frequency for me to enjoy the vibrations alone. If they had been deeper and not so high-pitched then it may have been another story. I’d be happy to recommend this to couples wanting to explore toys together, wanting some foreplay fun or simply wanting to explore something gentle as an introduction, but the rechargeable toys in this range may be better suited to the more initiated toy users.

Review: Lovehoney Desire Luxury Remote Controlled Butt Plug

Lovehoney’s Desire range is a collection of affordable luxury sex toys that have been designed with the thousands of customer reviews from their website in mind. I’ve become a big fan of the range so I was pleased to be offered the chance to test one of its latest additions. I have been getting into butt plugs on a serious level recently and the description of this one had ticked all of my metaphorical boxes. I had high hopes that it would be a major success considering the amount of feedback Lovehoney have to work from and I was not disappointed. I actually think this is the best product from the Desire range so far, alongside the rechargeable wand.

The plug arrives in a classy purple and black box with a product photo on the front and traditional Lovehoney heart on the back. Inside the box I found that my favourite feature of the Desire range had been included. A sturdy leather storage case with the Lovehoney logo embossed onto the front. I think this is way more convenient than having numerous satin storage bags that all look the same as it makes the finding the toy in the heat of the moment much easier. Another great thing about this case is the charging hole leading out of the back. This allows you to charge the toy whilst it’s stored away safely. This is particularly useful for those of us with pets or children as it keeps prying eyes and paws at bay. The case even has a netted section with elasticated straps to hold the toy in place and a small netted pocket to hold the charging cable, instruction manual and a small bottle of lube.

Made from a smooth, silky-soft silicone this plug feels luxurious and glorious. It does have some level of drag to it as silicone naturally has this problem, but it’s easily fixable with a good coating of water-based anal lubricant. I used a few pumps of Sliquid Sassy on the toy and a couple on myself and that was about right. You can use more or less than I do depending on your experience and how comfortable you find the material, but always use some. After use, rinse the plug with warm soapy water and leave to dry. It is fully waterproof so this is not a problem just be sure to keep the non waterproof remote out of the bathroom and just wipe down if/when needed.

Lovehoney Desire Remote Controlled Butt PlugBefore use, prepare for a full charge to be needed. To do so, plug the USB into a laptop or suitable charging port and attach the magnetic cap to the corresponding prongs on the base. A light should flash whilst charging and go solid once complete. It should take roughly 120 minutes and this should give up to 60 minutes of use, depending on what settings are being used, when the battery begins to run low the light will flash quickly to indicate that it needs to be plugged in.

As for the remote, it takes one battery (CR2032) and this comes included. You have to put some pressure on the back of the controller in a downward motion to release it so you can twist the cap inside the compartment and remove the paper disc from underneath the battery. You can then place the battery back into position, twist the cap back into place and slide the back firmly back on the remote. It sounds complicated and time-consuming but it really isn’t. This is all that’s required before the plug and the remote are ready for action.

Lovehoney Desire Remote Controlled Butt PlugTo turn on, press and hold the button on the base of the plug for around three seconds. Then hold down the central button on the remote for the same amount of time. You can then press any of the buttons on the remote to kickstart the vibrations. You can control the intensity of each setting with the plus and minus buttons whilst the central button flicks through each function.

To turn the plug off, press and hold the central button for a couple of seconds. You can use the plug without the remote too by tapping the singular button on its base to cycle through the patterns. We found this difficult when wearing the plug so tend to stick to the remote.

The Desire Remote Controlled Butt Plug is a tad bigger than other plugs I’ve used in the past, but as I’ve taken dildos and my partner anally, I found it comfortable and easy enough to insert. It’s definitely what I’d consider to be an intermediate plug in terms of girth (5.2 inches at the widest point) and it’s also longer than a lot of beginners plugs (5 inches insertable) so keep that in mind if you prefer width to length or aren’t used to length in your butt. I would not recommend this to someone new to anal or plugs, but it is going to be suitable for those who can manage medium-sized, verging into the larger category of butt stuff.

Lovehoney Desire Remote Controlled Butt PlugI found the size perfect for me to be able to move around comfortably without jabbing from the tapered tip or too much stretching from the girth. I can happily wear it for a couple of hours and leave the remote in the hands of my partner, enjoying the apprehension of not knowing when he’s going to turn it on. We had lots of fun with this as I did some housework and he used the remote to operate it from the other room. It seems to work from about 30 meters away, so there’s the potential for outside adventures too.

There are eight functions and twelve intensities to choose from on this plug. There’s one constant speed and seven various pulsations. Naturally I am drawn to the constant vibration, but I thought a couple of the other settings were fun too. I am very much power orientated so I wondered whether I’d be able to derive enough strength from this or not, but I’m happy to report that it’s strong enough to satisfy my urges. I can make good use of it from intensity seven and above and have found that the orgasms that come from it are quite strong and fairly reliable from this point.

Lovehoney Desire Remote Controlled Butt PlugI think this plugs base is great as its flared enough to provide me with the knowledge that it won’t be travelling anywhere unwanted unexpectedly and it offers the well needed, basic safety mechanic for these sorts of toys. I know for a fact that this plug won’t be going anywhere it shouldn’t so I’m able to relax and fully enjoy everything it has to offer me. The neck of it is flexible which makes insertion and removal extra comfortable and carefree, whilst also making long-term wear possible. The bulb is the opposite as it has little to no squish/flex and its firmness serves as a constant reminder of its presence, which I love.

Overall, I think the Desire Remote Controlled Butt Plug is wonderful. I love that it can be used with or without the remote as this opens up the options of ways that it can be used, even if it slightly difficult to control manually. It’s tons of fun during masturbation in conjunction with a clitoral vibrator and feels amazing during penetrative sex with a partner. It provides that tighter vaginal canal feeling that my partner loves and it. doesn’t seem to get in the way in of any of our regular rotation of positions. One thing I don’t encounter with every plug that I did with this one is the enjoyment when using it without any extras. This makes it a standout product for me, plus it’s pretty quiet so I can use it when there are others in the house without worrying about being heard. Bonus!
