Review: Mantric Realistic Vibrator

Are you following me on Twitter? If so, you may have seen me tweeting about the launch offer of a certain new collection from Lovehoney a few weeks back. The collection I’m referring to is named Mantric and it currently consists of nine silicone sex toys including a love egg, wand vibrator and prostate massager. I thought the collection was very visually appealing from the start and I couldn’t resist getting my hands on a product to review here on the blog. The pieces are all up-to-date, sleek takes on classic and popular sex toy styles and I couldn’t wait to give their promised premium pleasure a test run. So, did the Mantric Realistic Vibrator deliver on its promises or did it fail to be the innovative upgrade it advertised? Read on to find out my verdict!

Mantric Realistic VibratorThe packaging for Mantric products is what some would describe as bland but that’s exactly what I like about it. A plain cardboard box with the Mantric logo on the front is all that’s really required and this basic exterior is kind to the environment and easily disposable, so how could I complain? It isn’t fancy like some other brands boxes but it houses a truly luxurious treat inside its simple walls. The vibrator and charging cable are stored in separate pouches to keep them safe and clean and there’s also a user guide included.

Non-toxic, odourless and phthalate and latex free are words that offer several possibilities to what this vibrator could be made from but this toy is soft which rules out everything but silicone. The only hypoallergenic, body-safe material on the market that isn’t rigid. Mantric’s silicone is silken and smooth. It’s high-quality stuff with little drag to its untextured surface. It should only be combined with water-based lubes to avoid damage to the material and aid penetration. Naturally it is completely waterproof so can be rinsed before and after each use and cleaned with soap or toy cleaner without problems.

Mantric Realistic VibratorIt’s rechargeable and doesn’t come with battery life so it needed a full freshen up before I could get stuck in. It takes around a hundred minutes and offers roughly the same amount of use time, which I liked. The charging cable has a USB plug on one side which should be placed into a suitable connector and a jack on the other end which goes into a port on the back of the vibrator. It takes a firm push to get it fully inserted on the first few charges as it has self-healing silicone and this tends to be a little tough at first.

Control wise, there is only one button which makes operating this toy stress-free. Press it once to turn on and it will send the Mantric Realistic Vibrator into standby mode. To start the vibrations press again. Keep pressing the button to cycle through the various modes. The eighth press will stop everything and return to standby mode. The ninth press will cycle back to mode one. To turn off, just press and hold down for a couple of seconds. To activate the travel lock press and hold for three seconds. The light should flash six times to indicate success and the motor should pulse twice. Repeat the process or plug in the charger to deactivate.

So there are three speeds and four modes to choose from. Each mode flashes a different colour which is a feature I rather liked. It makes finding my favourite settings easier, particularly in the dark of night and could also be fantastic for people who find visual cues easier to remember than numbered settings. The first three functions are low, medium and high constant speeds. Mode one uses red, mode two uses blue and mode three uses green. After that there is the four patterned settings. Mode four uses purple and offers up a simple pulsation, mode five uses cyan and gives a combo of pulses and waves, mode six uses yellow and has a wave function and mode seven uses violet with its combination of pulsation and constant vibration.

Mantric Realistic VibratorThis Realistic Vibrator from Mantric is seven inches in overall length with six inches of insertable shaft. Six inches is the perfect length for me as it generally won’t reach or irritate my sensitive cervix but will hit all the spots I want it to stimulate. The shaft has a maximum circumference (around the head) of four and a half inches which places it on the lower side of the girth scale. This keeps it manageable for beginners and those who prefer slimmer vibrators. It’s been designed with g-spots in mind but it could also be used for a prostate for those who prefer the realistic look.

One thing that I write about all the time when discussing g-spot stimulation is firmness. I need tough pressure in this area for full, satisfying stimulation that results in orgasms otherwise I’m left feeling frustrated and reaching for old favourites. This vibrator has enough firmness to pass my tests and requirements but has a small amount of flex in the lower shaft that I can adjust for comfortable positioning if I need to. I really like this as it accounts for practical precision and comfort rather than just one or the other. If you are someone who prefers soft silicone cores for internal play or simply don’t need as much rigidity as I do then this may not be the best choice.

I am not usually a huge fan of realistic dildos and vibrators but this one isn’t ultra realistic. It’s what I’d call semi-realistic because it has a lifelike head but there’s no veins or texture and it’s not made in flesh tones. This element of realism may appeal to those who want something that resembles a phallus in terms of shape and size but don’t care for something with the full aesthetics and features of a human cock. For me, it strikes that balance well and I’m rather fond of it. The curved head is in the perfect position for my body so it doesn’t uncomfortably catch on my pubic bone or miss the spot entirely.

Mantric Realistic Vibrator

Once comfortably inserted and positioned, I just have to tilt the toy upwards very slightly and it will find the spot almost instantly. It feels natural and effortless to maneuver this vibrator and each gentle twisting motion I make enables the head to massage and caress my g-spot beautifully. I did try thrusting with it but I didn’t get the best feelings from it as it’s not quite wide enough for me to thrust aimlessly. I have to be very accurate with each movement which makes masturbating boring and chore-like.

As usual, the constant settings were my most used. I don’t enjoy patterns. The settings on the Mantric Realistic Vibrator are pleasant and fall somewhere on the rumbly spectrum. I wasn’t sure what to expect having never tried this new brand before but the motor involved is better than I thought considering the affordable price point. They provide that deep level of sensation that my body craves and reach more nerve endings and sensitive spots than their buzzy counterparts. I don’t need as much depth for internal use but it’s always welcomed, especially if I can also use the vibrator clitorally. It was pretty easy to get off with this for clit stimulation so I’d love to see this brand eventually create a comfortably, rumbly pebble that could compete with my Mimi Soft.

Mantric Realistic VibratorOverall, I liked this powerful, quiet Realistic Vibrator so much that I decided to order a couple more pieces from the Mantric range. I chose the rabbit vibrator for myself as the shape reminds me of the L’amourose Denia, which is an all-time favourite, and I got my partner the Vibrating Head Masturbator to explore. I’m hoping both of those new additions to our toybox will be as enjoyable as this one was. I’m looking forward to seeing where the future can take the Mantric collection and I hope other people will love it as much as I do.

You can purchase the Mantric Realistic Vibrator (£39.99) from Lovehoney.

Review: B-Vibe Trio Vibrating Butt Plug

Before we get into this review, we need to appreciate the anal experts that made this product. B-Vibe do absolutely fantastic work promoting safe and enjoyable anal play. Their products, guides and website are all gender neutral, sexuality neutral and welcoming to every body. They have tons of useful information on their site regarding backdoor fun and I would definitely recommend checking them out if you’re new, curious or unsure about anal stimulation. They have sex toys that are suited to different needs and levels of experience and the one I’m talking about today is the Trio. A vibrating butt plug that houses THREE different motors. I know my fellow power queens interest will be piqued by that and I’m happy to report back to them that I was not disappointed at all. It went above my expectations, proving that the Rimming Butt Plug 2 was not just a wonderful one-off but the first in a long line of greats.

The presentation was perfect. It had an outer cardboard sleeve with glossy product shot on the front, a description on one side, a list of key features on the back alongside some images of couples (bonus points for these pictures including multiple sexualities/ethnicities) and a diagram showcasing where each motor is located inside the plug. Under the sleeve there was a purple storage box with a magnetic side opening that opened to reveal a shiny metallic black case. The case held the plug, remote control, charging cable and a guide to anal play. The user manual was hidden underneath this case.

B-Vibe’s Trio Vibrating Butt Plug is made from luxurious silicone. It is high-quality, top-grade stuff that I can’t fault at all. It’s completely body-safe which means that it’s free from latex and phthalates, has no odour or nasty toxins and is hypoallergenic. It has a gorgeously soft, silky finish that has minimal drag to its surface and attracts less lint than silicone typically hoards. It requires a full coating of water-based anal lubricant for use as the anus does not self-lubricate. You may need to top up on the lube occasionally if you’re planning on wearing the plug for long periods of time or find it starts getting uncomfortable.

After use, the plug should be thoroughly cleaned with warm soapy water and rinsed off. It is splashproof, not fully waterproof, so don’t fully submerge it or use it in the bath/shower. I avoid wetting the base where possible and use antibacterial toy wipes on this area instead. When rinsed, dry with a lint free cloth or leave to dry naturally. It should be not used or charged until it’s completely dry and it should also not be cleaned with sprays that contain alcohol or acetone.

Rechargeable via a sturdy magnetic system, charging couldn’t be simpler. Just attach the magnetic clip to the points on the base and plug the USB into a suitable port. There should be a flashing light to indicate that the charging process has begun which goes solid once complete. In our experience, the plug takes around an hour and a half to charge and gives approximately the same amount of use time but it depends on the settings that have been used. The accompanying remote control is actually battery operated and comes with one pre-installed CR2032 to get you started. You can access the battery by sliding the back off the remote. Make sure to remove the paper disc inside this compartment before use so that it will actually work.

B-Vibe Trio Vibrating Butt PlugYou then have two control options. Manual control or use of the remote. My partner and I tried out both methods and found that it was easier to use the remote. I do like the option of having multiple methods but it can be difficult to change the setting manually whilst the plug is being worn. I only use the base controls if I don’t plan on changing the function I’m using and I don’t need to alter the intensity of the vibrations. All that’s needed for manual operation is a quick tap of the power button. This cycles through the nine modes and also turns everything off when pressed and held for a few seconds.

Controlling via the remote allows more range over the toys possibilities. To activate, turn the plug into standby mode by pressing the power button until it flashes. Then press the central button on the remote and check that the power button has gone solid to confirm the pairing. To change the vibration modes on the remote press the wave button. You can cycle through the nine options or pause all of the vibrations via this button. Press and hold for three seconds to do this. You can then press again once quickly to restart the vibrations

B-Vibe Trio Vibrating Butt PlugThe remote also allows you to change the intensity of each mode. You press the plus to increase and minus to decrease. There are a total of eight levels to choose from. To turn the toy and remote off, press and hold the power button on the plug for a few seconds and tap the power button on the remote once. To lock, press and hold the plus and minus buttons down together for three seconds or the power button on the plug for five seconds. You can reactivate by either method.

So, I mentioned three motors earlier but I didn’t describe the positioning of each one. There is one in the tip, one in the middle and one in the neck. I like the vibrations in the tip best but I also find the stimulation of the vibration in the neck to provide some external sensations that speed up my orgasms immensely. The vibrations are rumbly with some depth to them on the low to medium intensities but begin to get buzzier on the higher settings. Luckily, my butt doesn’t hate buzziness so this wasn’t a problem. Out of the nine vibration modes that are available, most of them use both of these motors which means I can make use out of nearly all of them. Here’s a list of what each function offers:

B-Vibe Trio Vibrating Butt PlugConstant vibration in the tip,
Constant vibration in the neck,
Constant vibration in the tip and neck,
Constant vibration from all three motors,
Pulsing pattern from all three motors,
Oscillating pattern from all three motors,
Fast paced pulsation pattern from all three motors,
Quick up and down pulsation pattern from all three motors,
Random pattern from all three motors.

I mostly stick to the first four modes as I prefer constant speeds but I don’t hate the patterns on this. I usually use the first and second modes to warm up with and then choose between the other two depending how sensitive I’m feeling. If I want maximum intensity then I’ll use the fourth setting to overwhelm my senses and let the toy force an orgasm from me rather than building to one myself. It’s tons of fun to play with during masturbation sessions alongside a clitoral vibrator like the Tango for maximum stimulation and aggressive orgasms but it’s also glorious during penetrative sex with my partner. It provides the well-known tighter vaginal canal feeling during intercourse and doesn’t get in the way of any of our regular rotation of positions. My partner can even control it from the base in the pronebone position which keeps things interesting.

B-Vibe Trio Vibrating Butt Plug

At just over five inches in overall length with 4.3 of them being insertable, this plug falls into the medium category. It has 3.9 inches of girth at its widest point which makes it suitable for those transitioning from beginner plugs to intermediate options. It’s noticeably slimmer than the Rimming Plug 2 so can be used as a warm-up tool or stepping stone to that.

I thought the size was extremely comfortable and the rounded, but tapered, tip didn’t cause a jabbing sensation like some of the other plugs I’ve tried with this shape. It works well with my body and doesn’t cause much of a stretching sensation during wear, making it perfect for those who don’t have tons of anal experience. I can happily wear the Trio for a few hours without having any problems. I enjoy leaving the remote in the hands of my eager partner, allowing the anticipation of not knowing when he’s going to turn it on to build to the suspense of the session. We had tons of fun with this as a couple and I think it’s definitely got potential to be used for public play providing there’s some background noise available. It works from about 30 meters away so a partner can control it from the next room or across the bar without having connection problems.

Overall, I think I have fallen head over heels for the Trio. I love that it can be used with or without the remote control as this gives various options for use and keeps things interesting. It might be difficult to control from the base but I like that the option is there if I want to use it. I have enjoyed it using it on its own, with other sex toys and with a partner so it’s practically perfect for every sexual situation. It has not disappointed me in the power department and I would not hesitate to recommend it to my fellow power lovers. Often multiple motors make a sex toy loud and obnoxious but B-Vibe have managed to make a manage-a-trois that’s quiet enough to use in public. I salute them.

Review: Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation

It’s no secret that I’m extremely fond of clitoral suction vibrators, so when I spotted pictures of the soon-to-be released Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation back in June, I posted on Instagram about how adorable it was. A couple of months later and one was on the way for me to review – courtesy of the lovely folks over at Peepshow Toys. When I got it in my hands it was everything I’d imagined it to be and more. I’m simply obsessed with its adorable on-point aesthetic and the addition of the hot pink bow-tie around the Penguins neck. It is everything the original should have been. It now has a colour scheme that accurately resembles the animal it’s named after and bares strong resemble to Pingu, a tv character that I adored throughout my childhood.

The packaging for this product was as expected, simplistic and classic. This hasn’t changed from the original models apart from the small mention of the awards the Next Generation Penguin won for its design. It still shows a product shot on the front and back along with a few key features printed on the sides. Inside the box, the vibrator rests within some plastic casing alongside the charging cable and user manual. It still does not come with any storage. I’m holding out hope for future generations to include a small satin pouch.

Satisfyer’s Pro Penguin is one of three rechargeable models and charges via a USB and magnetic clip system. Attach the clips to the magnets on the base and plug the USB into an available port. I noticed that this cable disconnected the charge easily unless it was placed on a completely flat surface. This was odd as all of the other cables for my rechargeable models seemed to be more sturdy than this one. The manual suggests that it could take up to eight hours for a first charge but it definitely didn’t take that long. It was ready to go in just under three hours and charges in just one and a half now. The lights on the control panel flash whilst charging and go steady once complete. You can get around ninety minutes of use per charge depending on the intensity used.

It is made from high-grade, silky smooth silicone and hard plastic. Both of these materials are completely body-safe, latex and phthalate free, hypoallergenic and odourless. Satisfyer recommend applying a coating of water-based lubricant around the rim of the nozzle for comfort during use. I would agree with this as comfort is a key factor when masturbating and the more relaxed I am, the better my experience tends to be. After use, rinse the fully waterproof device with warm soapy water then leave to air dry. You can remove the nozzle for deeper cleaning if you wish too. I’d recommend this as there are currently no replacement heads available for the Penguin.

Outside of the obvious appearance change, there’s another distinctive difference between the Penguin and the next Generation Penguin. The control panel. It still has two buttons but this time around they do different things. Press the four wave (bottom) button down for a couple of seconds to turn on. It will start on the lowest intensity. You can then tap this button up to eleven times to scroll through the rest of the intensity options or press and hold to turn off again. The two wave (top) button will take you back down through the intensities. I know a few people who mentioned that they’d like the option to go back a setting so I’m really pleased that Satisfyer took this on board and removed my previous frustrations.

Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next GenerationIn my opinion, people who like direct clitoral contact are best suited to a product like this. It’s not the type of toy that can work for everyone. For example, people who find constant pressure/attention towards their clitoris overwhelming, numbing or uncomfortable would not be well-suited to the Satisfyer.

This also wouldn’t be the best option for someone who likes to be very active and involved in a masturbation session as once the Penguin is in place comfortably it doesn’t need to be moved again until you’ve finished. I have tried moving it but finds this just reduces the sensation and breaks the suction which makes orgasms next to impossible.

To find your comfortable placement, lay back and part your labia slightly to reveal the clitoris. Place the nozzle over the area at whatever angle feels best then let the toy do the rest. It’s absolutely wonderful for lazy masturbators, people in a rush or those who just want something quick and reliable. I personally love it although this wasn’t surprising. Clitoral suction vibrators have proved over and over again to be successful for me and this one wasn’t going to be excluded. I can be presented with an orgasm from setting seven and above or even five and six on days where I’m more sensitive. The lower settings are ideal for teasing, warming-up or cooling down before round two.

If you’re a person who prefers broad stimulation to the angled tip of a bullet vibrator then you might find the Penguin too precise and intense for you, even on the lower settings. I’d also advise caution for clit-owners who are particularly sensitive. It may be better to start out with one of the slightly less intense battery operated versions of the Satisfyer and see whether the stimulation works for you before investing in one of the stronger, pricier models. I think the Next Generation Penguin is actually now the most intense model because of its different nozzle shape. The smaller, boxier nozzle seems to refine the sensations more than the regular oval-shaped heads.

Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next GenerationNoise is one of the first things people ask me regarding these toys so I’ll stick with the phrase I’ve used in every response. None of these suction stimulators can be completely quiet due to the mechanisms involved. Having said that, I do think this version is quieter than some of the other models. You will still want to play some background music if discretion is a necessity to you for whatever reason but it’s not the loudest suction device I’ve tried.

Overall, I usually prefer longer handled vibrators for this type of stimulation but in this case I can look past the shorter body and petite dimensions. It’s so comfortable to hold which I think makes all the difference. I will say that this may make use more difficult for people who have mobility/reach issues and in those situations I’d recommend the new Satisfyer Pro 2 instead. Complaints wise, I don’t have any to make on this occasion. I feel that all of my previous constructive criticisms have been addressed with this upgrade (minus the lack of storage bag). It now has better on-brand aesthetics, a convenient and easier to use control panel and a quieter motor. I’m looking forward to seeing what is next for this brand and whether they will continue to improve their products to leave their customers fully satisfied.

You can purchase the Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation ($54.99/£41.75) from Peepshow Toys. You can get 10% off any purchases with the code “NatandTom“.

Review: Lovehoney Desire Rimming Butt Plug

As a big fan of Lovehoney’s Desire collection of affordable luxury sex toys and a lover of butt plugs, I was excited to be given the chance to review the latest addition to the range. I tried this remote-controlled vibrating plug recently, which is similar, but the one I’m talking about today also offers rimming features. I was looking forward to seeing how Lovehoney’s Rimming Plug would hold up in comparison to the previously tried, tested and totally fabulous B-Vibe 2. It was made with tons of reviews and snippets of customers feedback in mind, as per the rest of the range, so I hoped that it would be just as gratifying as its predecessor. Did Lovehoney successfully pull this off or should they have left this design to the anal experts? Read on to find out my verdict!

The Desire Rimming Butt Plug arrived in a classy purple and black box with a product shot on the front and traditional Lovehoney heart on the back. Inside the outer box, a gorgeous leather storage case with the same heart logo embossed onto the front is revealed. I am obsessed with these cases as they are really convenient, discreet and can even be locked for extra privacy. Another thing that sets them apart from the bog standard storage pouches is the charging hole that leads out of the back of the cases. It’s beyond useful for charging toys securely and keeping them out of the sight of minors, nosy relatives and pets. It also keeps lint at bay.

Made from a gorgeously silky soft silicone, this plug feels luxurious and high-quality. It doesn’t have as much resistance to it as the previous plug I reviewed from the Desire range but a generous coating of water-based anal lubricant would still be recommended to remove any traces and make insertion and wear more comfortable. I would recommend something slick and long-lasting such as Sliquid Sassy or Lovehoney’s Discover. After use, this waterproof plug should be rinsed thoroughly in warm water and cleaned with soap or antibacterial toy cleaner. If you’re sharing it with a partner then I’d insist on wiping  down with a 10% bleach solution instead.

Like the rest of the range, this plug is rechargeable. Plug the USB connector into a port in your laptop or other suitable spot then place the jack at the other end of the cable into the base of the plug. A light flashes whilst charging and remains on when finished. It is said to take around two hours for a full charge and this can give up to an hour of use depending on the settings used. You’ll know the battery is running low when the light flashes to indicate this. The remote is not rechargeable but it does come with the required CR2032 battery. Just slide the back of the remote off and remove the paper disc from underneath before getting started.

To turn on manually, press the button on the base quickly once and wait for the light to flash. A second push will activate the first mode and each further push will cycle through the remaining four modes. To turn off, press and hold for three seconds. To control via the remote, press the button on the plugs base, wait for the flash and then press the central button on the controller. The plug should then start on mode one. To change modes press the central button again. To change the intensity of the vibrations press the up or down arrows as needed. When vibration and rotation are both present (settings 2 through 5) the rotation speed maintains at maximum.

If you travel with your toys then you’ll be pleased to know this plug has a travel lock. I don’t leave the house much so I don’t often use mine, but it’s nice to know it’s there. It can also come in handy if you have a packed toy drawer and don’t want to risk anything randomly buzzing away in the middle of the night as it pushes up against something else. To activate the lock, press and hold the plugs button for five seconds. A light should flash twice to indicate that it worked. To deactivate, repeat the process or plug it in to charge.

Enough of the basics, let’s talk about the modes. The first is a fast rotation that can be felt throughout the entire bulb and neck of the plug. It feels different to b-vibe’s plug as the rotation there was limited to the neck. If you prefer widespread sensations then this might be the better of the two for you. The second mode continues with the same steady rotation but also adds in some constant vibration. These vibes are primarily located in the base but can travel up to the neck too. Mode three is a pulsing rotation and stop and start of buzzing vibrations. Mode four alternates between rotation and vibration and mode five is like a sped-up version of four.

I use modes one and two 95% of the time. It’s no secret that I enjoy constant vibration and the same seems to apply with rotation. Both of these settings offer me that. I feel that the first mode is perfect for the start of a session for warming up and building the tension and the second mode brings out the big guns needed to bring me to the point of no return. I was seriously surprised by the intensity of the vibrations as I was expecting them to be an afterthought to the rotation/rimming mechanism but they’re actually rumbly and everything I look for in solid vibes.

Although the vibrations are mostly situated within the plugs base, they seem to travel up to the neck well and stimulate the entrance of my butt in a way that I’ve only ever experienced with the other rimming plug in our collection. I’m very sensitive around this area and I think both butt plugs work to this sensitivity uniquely. The Desire Plug offers some extra external stimulation from the vibrations whereas b-vibe’s offer internal stimulation and focuses solely on the sensation of rimming around the entrance. If you prefer your sensations all in one place (the sphincter, entrance and skin around those areas) then I would suggest this plug over the other. If you want internal vibes as well as entrance and sphincter stimuli then I’d opt for b-vibe’s.

So, does this rimming plug actually replicate rimming? I would say that it’s not far off. Rimming is a hard sensation to replicate and I think this is a great attempt at capturing the motions. Any mechanical movement is going to feel somewhat different to the movement of someone’s muscles but I must admit that my body reacts in a similar way to this plug as it does to my partner. I can orgasm powerfully with the Desire Plug and I think that’s due to the combination of the rotation tickling all the right sweet spots back there and the extra oomph from the vibrations around the opening.

My partner and I have affectionately named this plug the ‘rocket launcher’ as that seemed most-fitting when describing the shape. It’s super comfortable to wear and insert and the measurements are more than manageable for intermediate anal players. It has a maximum circumference of four and a half inches, overall length of four and a half inches and an insertable length of three and a half. It has a sturdy flared base to prevent unwanted travel and it doesn’t get in the way during PIV. I thought the base might be too chunky at first and prevent vaginal entry but all turned out good. It doesn’t interfere at all and as it has all the extra sensation I could ever need I don’t even need to add a clit vibe into the mix.

Overall, I think the Desire Rimming Plug will be a roaring success for Lovehoney. I’m glad to see them creating something like this as an affordable alternative to the b-vibe 2 as I feel that more people will now be able to explore rimming sensations. I think the shape of this one worked slightly better for me and this one is also a little quieter which makes it the best choice for those who need discretion. It has all the features I could ask for – body-safe material, waterproof, rechargeable, included storage, sturdy flared base, powerful motor and interesting shape. I would be happy to recommend this to anyone who is looking to explore a new kind of anal play who has some experience with insertables.

You can purchase the Desire Remote Control Rimming Butt Plug (£79.99) from Lovehoney.
