Review: Javida Double Ended Vibrating Massager

When I was asked what I wanted to review next for Orion, I spotted a couple of Javida products that looked interesting. I had already tried the heating vibrator from that line so I knew it was a good quality collection and all of the products seem to have some sort of fun quirk that appeals to me. I asked for the Nubby Vibe with Clit Stimulator which is a textured dual stimulator and this Double Ended Wand Massager which is a vibrator with two different ends for two different purposes. I was most looking forward to this one as I’ve tried a dual wand before and loved it; so I thought this might be an alternative that I could recommend to international folks.

Javida Double Ended Wand MassagerThe packaging was the same as the presentation for the heating vibrator, a simple black and pinkish/purple box. It’s decorated with floral graphics and features key product information on the back and sides. The front of this box has a magnetic flap that can be opened up to reveal the vibrator behind a sheer screen of plastic which is a cute touch. Inside, I found the wand, a generic instruction leaflet and the required charging cable. It doesn’t come with storage which is a bit of a shame but not a huge deal.

Javida’s Double Ended Wand Massager is made from silicone with a polyurethane coating and an abs plastic control panel. It’s a non-toxic, hypoallergenic and body-safe combination of materials. It doesn’t contain any latex or phthalates and seems to be very well-made and ergonomically designed. I was impressed with the feel of the silicone as the beautifully smooth surface feels amazing to the touch and has the smallest amount of drag possible. It’s silky soft but should be used with water based lubricant for comfort. Neither the box nor the website description mention 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 Double Ended Wand MassagerThis is a rechargeable vibrator. It has a USB connector at one end that needs to be placed in a suitable port and it has a silicone sealed hole in the back for the jack. Push it through and look for the flashing red light. This will indicate that the charge has started. It becomes a steady green light once the charge is complete. It states that it takes a hundred and eighty minutes for a full freshen up and this can last up to one hundred and twenty minutes depending on the settings being used.

To turn the toy on, press the central power button until the control panel lights up red once. Press the M or W button to control the vibration intensity in the head or the tip. M controls the massage head and has three levels of intensity. The W controls the vibrations in the tip and also has three intensities. The control panel will be lit continuously during this. After the third intensity has been reached in whichever end of the vibrator that’s in use it will stop. It will remain switched on but you have to tap again to cycle through again. Alternatively you can press the power button for a couple of seconds to turn on the eight functions. These can be used in either end. The control panel uses different colored lights for each mode.

It is 8.5 inches in overall length which gives you plenty of handle/grip room. It’s most comfortable to hold the slim end in my opinion, but both work well as stable handles. The wand has a maximum girth of 4.7 inches at its widest point, which is actually very streamlined for this sort of massager. It’s not very wide at all so the sensations end up being somewhere between pinpoint and broad. If you don’t really have a preference or simply just need something vibrating against your clitoris during masturbation or sex then something like this could work for you. The slim tip has a max girth of 4.1 inches so if you’re a beginner and want to play around with insertion this is a viable option for that too.

Javida Double Ended Wand MassagerI thought the first and second intensity in the head of the wand felt good. Both settings has some depth to them and were low-frequency. The third and most intense setting was faster paced, higher frequency and buzzy. The settings in the other end of the vibrator were set to a patterned buzzing of those three different intensities. It’s no secret that I don’t get along with patterned vibrations so I scrolled through the eight functions to find the steady setting. It was the same story as the wand end, first settings were good, third was buzzy.

I held the Javida Double Ended Massager against my clitoris wand side up to start with and expected to hit the M button straight up to the third intensity. I usually just go to full power instantly as I’m a sucker for strength, but I didn’t feel like that was appropriate with this wand. I was comfortable with the second intensity and enjoyed the depth behind this setting very much. I could feel myself climbing up to the steps to orgasm heaven gradually and that’s something I experience rarely with clitoral stimulation although I can appreciate it every now and again. Most of the time I’d want to orgasm in under five minutes so I could continue with my day or take a nap, but I can tolerate extra time with this wand.

Javida Double Ended Wand MassagerTen to fifteen minutes seems like an accurate representation of the time that it takes me to get off with this vibrator. This would usually be too long for me and I’d become bored and frustrated and end up switching to something reliable like the Doxy, but for some reason I make excuses for this toy and it’s become one of the few exceptions to this unwritten rule of mine. If I’ve had a stressful week I would usually opt for a drawn out internal orgasm to relieve some tension and built up pressure, but now I’ve begun craving external massages instead.

It doesn’t make me climax in the way that I had anticipated, but that’s what has left me invested in this vibrator. It has bought out another side to my masturbation habits that I hadn’t come across before and helped me discover something new about my tastes and preferences. I have learned that maybe it is alright to wait for the orgasm to pass naturally sometimes rather than force it out with something super strong like the Tango or above mentioned Doxy. This is a mid-range intensity massager and perfect for those who don’t need strength by the bucket load. It’s also good for power queens who think their clits have deserved a break from the battering of rumbly vibrations and needs some time to relax and release on its own time.

Javida Double Ended Wand MassagerAn interesting side use for the wand side is as a body massager. My partner likes it to be used as a massage tool, be that during an erogenous tour of his body or a soothing press against his aches and pains. Its oval head is great for getting at tight knots that bury themselves just below the surface and reaching hard to access areas but it doesn’t get into the deepest sores and aches as it’s simply not wide enough. You’d need a mains powered wand with a larger head for those purposes. For a quick run down after a long day or a teaser against the groin though, this is simple and effective.

As for the slimmer end, I don’t have much to share. I’ve tried it a handful of times and had the same experience each time. Average, uninteresting, not particularly exciting… You catch my drift. It just felt like a boring dildo when used internally and it didn’t have the right shape for my body externally. I couldn’t get the right amount of surface area covered, the right amount of pressure or the right angle to make clitoral contact feel good and empowering. It might be a better fit for someone else, but I just didn’t have much luck with it as a stimulator regardless of how I tried to use it and how many chances I gave it.

Overall, I think the Javida Double Ended Vibrating massager is a well-made, decent quality vibrator at an affordable price tag. It’s not without its faults and difficulties, but there are some great points to consider that outweigh the downsides for me. I may have been disappointed and ranting in the slimmer end if I hadn’t loved the wand head so much. It is the sole provider of orgasms on this toy and it provides a variety of sensations with a multitude of possible uses. It can be used on any anatomy or body and the vibrations are not awful. It doesn’t make me scream out in ecstasy, but it has taught me a trick or two about taking my time on occasion and letting some orgasms be laid-back and less intense. Not every orgasm has to be mind-blowing and leg shakingly good. Sometimes just a breath of fresh air is all that’s needed.

You can purchase the Javida Double Ended Vibrating Massager (€59.95/£54.64) 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: 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!

You can purchase the Lovehoney Desire Remote Controlled Butt Plug (£59.99) from Lovehoney. I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!

Review: B-Vibe Rimming Butt Plug 2

B-Vibe Rimming Butt Plug 2I’ll preface this review by saying that I never had the pleasure of trying the original B-Vibe Rimming Butt Plug despite looking at it a bunch of times, so I can’t comment on whether this is an improved version or not. However, I can comment on whether I think the sensations are similar to the act of rimming and sum up my overall experience with the Rimming Plug 2.

Before I get into any of that though I want to take a moment to appreciate B-Vibe as I think they do fantastic work promoting safe, enjoyable anal play for every body. Their website is filled with useful information regarding backdoor fun and I think anyone with questions regarding safety etc should go and check out their faq as it’s likely they’ll find answers there. As I think this company are basically the anal pros of the industry right now, I’m really looking forward to seeing what they make next and I can’t wait to hopefully get my hands on more of their products in the coming months.

The presentation was lovely. It had an outer cardboard sleeve with a glossy product shot on the front, a description on one side, a list of key features on the back along with some images of couples (I love that these shots included multiple sexualities and ethnicities as this felt very inclusive) and a diagram on the other side showing which area of the plug vibrates, which area rotates and how many settings each feature has. Under the cardboard sleeve there was a blue storage box with a magnetic side opening that lifted to reveal the remote control and a shiny metallic blue case. Inside this case I found the plug, charging cable and a guide to anal play. Underneath this storage case there was a multilingual user manual hidden away.

B-Vibe’s Rimming Butt Plug 2 is made from a luxurious silicone. It feels like top-notch, high-quality stuff and I cannot fault it at all. It’s of course latex and phthalate free, odourless, hypoallergenic and body safe. It has a delightfully soft, smooth finish with very little drag to it so I didn’t need as much lubricant as I thought I would. It is a medium-sized plug so lubricant is still essential, but not for the drag, more because of the size and the fact the anus doesn’t self lubricate. After use, rinse with warm soapy water and dry with a lint free cloth. It is splashproof so can be rinsed, but don’t submerge it in the bath or shower. I tend to avoid wetting the base where possible and spritz with cleaner and a semi damp cloth instead. Just be sure to check that the cleaner doesn’t contain alcohol or acetone beforehand.

The plug is rechargeable via a magnetic system. Simply attach the magnetic clip to the points on the base of the toy and the USB into a suitable port such as one you’d find on a laptop. There will be a flashing light to indicate that the toy is charging and a solid light once complete. It takes roughly two and a half hours to freshen up and this provides around ninety minutes of use in our experience when using the highest intensity consistently. The remote control on the other hand, is battery operated. It comes with a pre-installed CR2032 and you can access this by sliding the back off the remote. Remove the paper disc inside the battery compartment before use and remove the battery between uses to prolong its life.

You have two control options. Manual or via the remote. My partner and I tried out both and found the manual control to be difficult whilst being worn, so unless I plan to use the same vibration and rotation setting throughout a session without changing intensity then I opt for the control. If you would like to manually operate it though, the option is there. Just press the power button in the base quickly, wait for the light to flash to indicate its switched on, then push again to change the pattern. Press and hold for a few seconds to turn off. There are a total of nine modes available when using the manual control. This offers a couple of rotation only settings, a couple of vibration only settings and some mix and matches.

B-Vibe Rimming Butt Plug 2Controlling via the remote is not as straight forward but it allows more range over the toys possibilities. To begin, turn the plug into standby mode by pressing the power button until it flashes. Then press the power (central) button on the remote. The base light will become solid once the control has been paired with the plug. There are plus and minus buttons on the control which control the intensity of the vibrations and/or the rotation speed. Press plus to increase and minus to decrease.

To change the vibration modes press the wave button. To turn the vibrations off altogether hold the wave button down for three seconds. To change the rotation function press the arrowed button. To stop the rotation press and hold this button for three seconds. To turn off, press and hold the power button on the plug and tap the power button on the remote. It also has a travel lock feature which can be activated by the controller or the base unit. Press and hold the plus and minus together for three seconds to lock/unlock that way or the power button on the plug for five seconds for manual locking.

At just under six inches in overall length and four and a half insertable, this plug is not super modest, but not huge either. It has just over five inches of girth at the widest point (just above the stem/neck) which makes it a comfortable size for intermediate players. I’d consider it a medium-sized plug, which is a great size for me with my experience level and doesn’t take much warming up to. A few moments of wearing the Booty Buddy can get me prepped to take this with no problems. I think it would be too large for a complete beginner, but B-Vibe now make the Novice plug which looks a bit smaller.

B-Vibe Rimming Butt Plug 2There are six vibration modes on offer with the controller. One steady speed, a slow pulse, a wave, a fast pulsation, a rollercoaster of intensities and a hard to describe mode that was mostly high intensity pulsation. I prefer the steady speed, which will come as a surprise to no-one, but most were tolerable and I did enjoy the fifth setting. None of them were too buzzy for my tastes and all of the settings had decent strength even on the lowest intensity. I’d go as far as to say they had fantastic strength on the top intensity and definitely enough for my butts preferences.

I don’t need as much power internally (be that vaginally or anally) as I do clitorally, but I always welcome super strength when it’s available. This toy also has the rotation modes too, which tickles even more sweet spots. There are seven on offer; a left rotation, a right rotation, rotating left and right swiftly, rotating left then right slowly, rotating left then pausing and making a quick right rotation, a longer left rotation followed by a pause and right rotation and finally a rotation that speeds up and slows down again. My preference was again the steady settings and I honestly didn’t find much difference between which way it was turning.

I have wondered since the day I first saw the rimming plug how on earth it would be able to replicate the sensation of a tongue and whether it would be able to do it well. I think the B-Vibe Rimming Plug 2 is pretty close. I can’t vouch for the original, but I do think this version feels somewhat like the act itself. It moves a little faster than the average person’s tongue, but it feels fantastic. I can’t fault it. There’s stimulation being provided from the internal vibrations but also around the sphincter where the plug is rotating. The entrance of the butt has always been a sensitive and easily stimulated part of my body and this is the first toy that has actually worked this area into a frenzy. It’s more than just a simple filled or stretching sensation, it’s the movement that causes my body to contract and tighten around the plug.

B-Vibe Rimming Butt Plug 2Does it feel good? Absolutely it does. It stimulates every sweet spot that’s known to me back there and I’ve found myself turning to this toy an awful lot of late. I’ve found it comfortable to wear, even for long periods of time and the base is exceptionally sturdy.

I can wear this during PIV to help me reach an orgasm faster and I don’t even need a clit vibe in conjunction with it as I have done with regular vibrating plugs in the past. This provides all the added sensation I could ever need. It doesn’t get in the way during penetration as the base isn’t huge, but it is wide enough to prevent travel and give me peace of mind.

B-Vibe Rimming Butt Plug 2I would agree with anyone who says that this is a wonderful couples toy. I personally wouldn’t wear it out and about as its unfortunately not the quietest plug on the market, but for use around the house and bedroom I absolutely love it. My partner does too. He loves to be in control of the remote and surprise me with different modes and randomly turn features on and off as he pleases to keep me on my toes. It has given me nothing but pleasurable experiences so far and the noise level is one of the only things I dislike about it.

Overall, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this plug to anyone who can handle the size and wants to explore the sensation of being rimmed. It may not be exactly like the real thing, but it’s close enough and offers an experience a regular butt plug can’t. I have had no issues reaching orgasm with the B-Vibe Rimming Plug 2 and I will definitely be looking into trying some more of their products at some point. I’ve now got my eyes on the Novice, Trio and Beads but I’m sure I’ll be wanting their whole range if my next experience is as positive as this one. As a final thought, I think this plug was a major success and I can’t wait to see whether they can top this in the future.

Review: Icicles No 37 Textured Glass Butt Plug

I own several butt plugs now and most of them could be classed as small and beginner like, so I decided it was time to branch out. I saw the intermediate sized Icicles No 37 pop up on Lovehoney and knew it would the perfect plug to up my game with. It’s made from my favourite material, has some glorious looking texture and is a touch longer than the other plugs I have. All of these factors made this plug stand out to me and although I’m not crazy about Pipedream, the brand behind Icicles, affordable glass can be hard to find and I like to review sexy things at a variety of price points.

Icicles No 37 Glass Butt PlugIt arrived in the simplistic packaging that is typical of the Icicles range. It’s rather classy considering the manufacturer and I’m pretty happy with it. The front of the box shows off an image of the product and pulls open to reveal the plug behind a window of plastic. Inside, the Icicles No 37 is protected by a layer of foam casing. It’s somewhat disappointing that Pipedream don’t include storage bags with this range as glass needs to be secured safely to avoid chips and the boxes are too bulky.

The box also gives some care instructions inside/on the back, but there’s some questionable areas of text. I have to strongly disagree with their suggestions for changing the temperature as they list the microwave and freezer as options. Nope. Please don’t do either of those things. Microwaves can create heat spots and freezers could lead to potential awkward and painful sticking of the anus to the product. Neither of those would be fun. Stick to safe methods such as the fridge or placing it in a bowl of water that’s at your desired temperature. I personally like to chill mine for twenty minutes or so.

One bonus of glass as a material is that it can be used with any type of lubricant as there are no concerns about material degradation. I like to use silicone based as these tend to be slicker. Glass is non-toxic, non-porous, odourless, hypoallergenic and completely body safe. You can even place it in the dishwasher for a thorough clean. This is particularly important if more than one person intends to use the plug and should be done before changing hands (or anuses). I use soap and water for everyday cleaning, but will run it through the dishwasher once a month for a more in-depth clean. I also use an old toothbrush to remove any fluids harboring around the nodules.

Having heard one or two horror stories about butt plugs with not-so-sturdy finger loops, the very first thing I did was give this one a test run. I’m pleased to report that this one feels very secure and safe to use. I twisted, pulled and tugged to the harshest of my abilities and there were no signs of trauma to the glass or loosening of the finger loop. The rest of the No 37 seemed sufficiently well made too as there were no imperfections whatsoever. Sometimes this happens with hand-blown glass massagers, but not this one. It’s basically perfect aesthetically.

Icicles No 37 Glass Butt PlugAfter slathering the bulb and neck with lube, I carefully inserted the plug. It went in without much resistance and felt comfortable throughout because of the tapered tip. I have taken toys like the Tantus Flurry in my butt previously and have had anal sex with my larger than average partner, so the dimensions were fine for me. I wouldn’t recommend it to somebody who has no anal experience though. It’s still a fairly small plug but it’s bigger than the beginners plugs on the market. It has an insertable length of four inches and a girth of four and a half inches.

One thing that I discovered about this plug quite early on was the lack of difference between the circumference of the bulb and circumference of the neck. There’s not much change at all which means that this butt plug is capable of slipping out on occasion. It has happened to me twice thus far and both times were during penetrative sex. As a result, I don’t feel that I can recommend this as a plug that can be worn during vigorous sex unless you have a spare hand to hold onto the base. That might be a bit of a mood killer and frustration though. In our experience, the Icicles No 37 is better suited to slower love-making and solo sessions.

Icicles No 37 Glass Butt PlugI thought it was great for masturbation sessions and this is where it shined for me. I found that thrusting in and out, regardless of pace, allowed me to make the most of those delicious raised nodules. I can really feel and appreciate this texture when I maneuver the plug and it feels divine. It’s not what I’d call extreme, but it’s not subtle either. It has an ideal amount of intensity for its size and it feels wonderful. If you’ve ever tried the Lovehoney Nubby and liked it, this plug would be a great choice for you as the texture is similar.

Another fun method for solo play was gentle rotation. I’d hold onto the loop and gently twist the plug in circular motions. Lovehoney mentioned this in their product description and it worked well for me, although I don’t know if I’d describe it as feeling like oral like they did. It was pleasurable for me though. If I wore the plug without any sort of movement then the texture wasn’t very noticeable. It could only be truly felt during insertion and removal. I wanted more than that. Playing with the No 37 allows the texture to become prevalent again and included in the build-up to orgasm. If I combine thrusting or rotation with a clit vibe then I can get off quite easily.

Overall, I think the Icicles No 37 is a good quality, inexpensive plug that’s ideal for intermediate anal players. If the bulb has been a little wider then I think it would have stayed in easier during sex, but this isn’t a major problem as there are workarounds. Holding onto the base, restricting use to slower sex or holding it back for masturbation/solo sessions are all viable options. I personally like option three best and have found it most successful. I’d be happy to recommend this plug to people who like relatively intense texture, temperature play and medium-sized butt plugs.

I received the Icicles No 37 Textured Glass Butt Plug (£29.99) from Lovehoney in exchange for my honest review. Thank you! Affiliate links have been used within this post.
