Reviews Elsewhere: Pleasure Panel November & Bonus Round 2017

Pleasure Panel Turbo Status

My partner and I been reviewing for the Pleasure Panel since the early months of 2016 and have had a varied selection of products assigned to us so far. Some of the products we’ve tried have been fantastic whilst others have been at the other end of the spectrum and disappointed us. The last rounds of 2017 were the perfect example of this as we received two items, one hit and one miss. Find out which of these items won us over in the below previews.

Svakom Cookie

The first item was the Svakom Cookie, one of the brands latest releases. It’s marketed as a ‘sensual foreplay vibrator’ and has three tentacles designed to surround the clitoris or nipples whilst the motor works on creating arousal and providing stimulation. Unfortunately, it wasn’t my perfect match once I’d put it into practice and I had lots of frustrating testing sessions trying to position it around my clitoris. The tentacles rotate in small circles which means it falls out of reach of my clitoris each time it moves and there’s no option to turn this function off. I didn’t orgasm with it once, which is disappointing, as I loved the packaging, colour scheme and other aesthetic features but the motor, noise and function departments all need some tweaking to make it perfect for me.

Love Layla Designs Bundle Pleasure Panel Review

Our second review comes from a bonus round that was held for Cara Sutra Patrons. Five pledges received a bundle of items to review and ours included the Love Layla Designs Blow Me Balloons, Wine Tag and Valentine’s Cards. We hadn’t heard of this business before but once we visited their website we fell in love with the sarcastic surprises, fabulously flirty gifts and cheeky cards that greeted us. None of the above items are typical of what we review but we thoroughly enjoyed exploring our bundle and absolutely loved everything that was inside. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this brand to others that share our sense of dry humour for special occasion cards and novelty gift tags.

That concludes the last of our 2017 contributions to the Pleasure Panel with thanks once again to Cara Sutra, Svakom and Love Layla Designs. If you are a member of the Pleasure Panel and would like to be eligible for future bonus rounds, be sure to check out Cara’s Patreon.

Reviews Elsewhere: PleasurePanel September & October 2017

If you have heard of our fellow blogger and sex industry legend, Cara Sutra, then you may have heard about their Pleasure Panel project. This gives bloggers, reviewers and general toy enthusiasts the chance to write product reviews that are placed on her popular site. We have been part of this project for a while now and have decided to start posting snippets of those reviews here so you can keep up with what we’ve been reviewing elsewhere on the web. We have combined September and October’s posts for this round-up and there’s a total of six products to talk about so let’s get stuck in!


Romant Amber Voice Activated Vibrator

In September we received just the one product to try out but it was an exciting one. The Romant Amber Voice Activated Vibrator from Honour. We were very intrigued by the concept of voice activation as it’s something we hadn’t explored before but did it impress us? Not particularly. Here’s a snippet: “I don’t know whether I expected too much from the technology behind this vibrator or whether it’s just an average toy with a cool feature but it didn’t wow me.”


Amoremeo Salted Caramel Massage Gel

Then came the October round and boy did Cara spoil us! We received five products for review in this round and up first was the Amoremeo Salted Caramel Kissable Massage Gel. You may recall us reviewing the Amoremeo Vanilla Massage Gel earlier on in 2017, so we’ve now tried both flavours and have contrasting opinions. I initially wasn’t sure about this scent but here’s a preview of what I thought in the end: “It was surprisingly pleasant to me and I found myself thinking that it would be perfect for the festive season.”

Give Lube #Selfie Masturbation Cream

Next up was the Give Lube #Selfie Masturbation Cream. My partner has now tried a handful of masturbation creams and lubricants and they seem to be getting better each time. This was a raging success with him and almost scored top marks. Here’s a brief overview of his feedback: “It’s more than thick enough to provide a level of comfort and glide that wouldn’t be possible with water-based options and could be a game changer for penis owners who’ve never tried a hybrid mix before.”

Give Lube Noir Silicone Lubricant

We are an interracial couple that have different skin needs so when I spotted the Give Lube Noir Silicone Lubricant on October’s listing I eagerly volunteered on his behalf. This lubricant was designed with black skin in mind and as my partner is mixed race I thought he’d be a good candidate to trial it. This received top marks from both of us and will be a staple in our collection from now on. From the review: “I’m really happy with the way my partner reacted to this lube and I love that the needs of black skin are now being well catered for.”

System JO Warm and Buzzy Clitoral Stimulant

System JO’s For Her Warm and Buzzy Clitoral Stimulant was one of my top choices during this round as I’m a sucker for orgasm enhancers. I haven’t had all positive experiences with this brand in the past but this product was great although some extra intensity wouldn’t have gone amiss. “If this is applied to the clitoris and left to warm up for a few moments before a vibrator is introduced then the area is more sensitive and results in more intense reactions to the vibrations.”

System JO Premium Jelly Silicone Based Lubricant

Finally, the System JO Premium Jelly Silicone Based Lubricant landed on our doorstep. As sex toy reviewers, bloggers and lube enthusiasts we can never have enough options. This is one of the best affordable silicone lubricants on the market at the moment in our opinion. It got top marks from us and we’d highly recommend this to our fellow silicone lube lovers. I think this one is best summed up by one simple sentence from the review: “System JO have definitely stepped up their game and done a great job creating this product.”

Reviews Elsewhere: Pleasure Panel August 2017


As you may know, we have been part of Cara Sutra’s Pleasure Panel for a while now so I thought I would start posting snippets of our reviews here so people can catch up on what we’ve been reviewing elsewhere. In August, we received three products to review for the Pleasure Panel.

Wicked Aqua Pink Lemonade Flavoured Lubricant

SaveSave

The first product we reviewed this month was the Wicked Aqua Pink Lemonade Flavoured Lubricant. We love trying new lubricants and this one was definitely a hit for us. Its one of my partners favourites and his most requested choice at the moment. Here is a short extract from our review: “He finds many flavoured lubricants artificial and tacky in taste, but he said that this one was more subtle, less chemical and pretty spot on with what it was supposed to taste like.”

Wicked Creme Masturbation Cream

The second product we reviewed this month was another from the brand Wicked. This time it was the Creme Masturbation Cream. A coconut oil, silicone and water based mix that sounded like it wouldn’t work in theory, but definitely did in practice. Here’s a short snippet from the full review: “He feels that the Wicked Crème Masturbation Cream provides a smooth, easy-sailing slip and slide that lasts much longer than any lubricating product he has used in the past.”

We-Vibe Wish

Last but not least, we tried out the We-Vibe Wish. I was most excited for this one as it’s no secret that I adore this brand. It took me on somewhat of a journey and is one of a handful of exceptions to my ‘I hate patterned vibrations’ tendencies. Here’s a preview: “All ten settings are patterned and as these are settings I tend to avoid I thought I’d ended up with something unusable. That was until I discovered the PowerPulse settings, the first three modes on the We-Vibe Wish.”

Huge thanks to Cara Sutra for allowing us to take part in August’s Pleasure Panel Round and an additional thank you to the companies who sent in the products for testing. If you are a member of the Pleasure Panel or would like to be, be sure to check out Cara’s Patreon and pledge what you can!
