Round Ups: Pleasure Panel Reviews For November/December 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.

Round Ups: Best and Worst Sex Products of 2017

I have reviewed a couple of hundred products on this blog over the past two years and over a hundred of them were in the previous twelve months alone. That is a large number of reviews to have written and yet, I still feel like I’m ambling around in the dark sometimes. I started to feel like I’d found my feet in the last months of 2017 and although there are still things I’d like to change and adjust, I feel like I’m on the right path at last. After I’d spent lots of time on the admin side of things, I decided to take some time to reflect on the posts I’d done over the last year, the products I’d tried and tested and the companies I’ve been lucky enough to work with. I came up with a list of my best and worst sex toys from 2017 and I’m going to kickstart that list off with vibrators.

Best & Worst Sex Toys of 2017!

The best vibrator I tried in 2017 has to be the Zumio Clitoral Stimulator. Yes, it looks unusual, takes forever to charge and doesn’t like it when pressure is applied but I can’t deny the way my body responds to it. I’m a lover of direct contact so the small surface area of the Zumio is perfect for me. The strong sensations resonate through hot spots on and below the surface of my clitoris and bring me to climax within minutes. It’s earned a place inside my bedside table and regular rotation schedule alongside a couple of other new favourites.

Second place goes to So Divine’s Let’s Go Crazy, a heated vibrator that gave me hope that there’s a perfect rabbit out there for every vulva. It fits my anatomy perfectly, has a huge variety of settings and heats up to a temperature that my body definitely agrees with. I never thought I’d be raving about a rabbit this much, but I’m a big fan of this one. Last but not least, third place goes to the Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation. Whilst it’s not technically a vibrator, it has to be said that clitoral stimulators like this one have taken over the sex toy scene of late. This was one of my favourite models and I’m eager to see if anything else can top it in 2018.

As for worst vibrators, I’d have to go with the Vive Ombra. I tried the Minu from the same brand in late 2016 and I felt the same way about that product. I also have the Cleo which I’m yet to review, but I think it’s obvious how that review is going down. All of these vibrators have underpowered, buzzy vibrations that are uncomfortable to hold against bare skin and although I could orgasm with the Ombra if I waited long enough, those testing sessions were the most boring I’ve had in a long time. Life is short, I don’t have time for half-assed, underwhelming orgasms.

Favourite Dildos of 2017

Tantus are my must have brand for all things insertable and they released some of their most popular dildos in a new formula of silicone in 2017. I’ve only tried one of them to date but it turned out to be the best dildo I tested all year. The Super Soft Vamp is wonderful for g-spot stimulation, filling vaginal stimulation and anal penetration. I couldn’t use the original Vamp for backdoor sessions as it was simply too firm but this new soft version is comfortable enough for me to manage and achieve fantastic orgasms.

I don’t know if awarding a toy a place on this list that wasn’t released in 2017 is fair, but one of the most enjoyable dildos that I tried this year was an older model from the Pipedream Icicles range. The #24 is beautiful to look at, ideal for anyone with a tentacle fantasy and glorious for fans of texture. It has been one of my most-used insertables over the past several months and I think it will continue to be a firm favourite. Third place is awarded to another toy from the brilliance of Tantus and that is the Uncut #2. Realistic dildos are not usually my thing but the thought of a toy with foreskin intrigued me. It was better than I had anticipated and now I have a toy that’s resembles my partners shape when he’s not around, which I just love. I hope to try the #1 in 2018 and see if that ticks as many boxes.

It’s extremely difficult for me to pick a worst dildo for last year as I didn’t try that many. Last year seemed to consist of vibrators for the most part. I think I only reviewed around ten dildos, most of those from Tantus. My mission for 2018 is to try more insertable toys of all shapes and sizes to see what is out there that I have been missing out on or luckily avoiding. Got any suggestions for me? Let me know in the comments or send over an email.

Favourite Plugs of 2017

In 2016 I forgot all about anal products. I was so focused on bondage and dildos that butt plugs and beads got completely overlooked. I made sure that changed in 2017 and anal toys quickly became one of my favourite categories to write reviews for. There was no contest for which toy would be awarded first place in this round. It had to be B-Vibe’s Rimming Plug 2. I was blown away by the strength this beauty had. The rimming sensations felt out of this world and it’s simply one of the most unusual feelings I’ve ever encountered with a sex toy, in all the right ways. The Trio Plug from the same brand is also pretty fantastic and I can’t wait to see more from them in 2018.

There were so many wonderful products that I could have placed at number two but in the end I decided to award it to We-Vibe’s Ditto. Shape wise, this was new to me. I hadn’t tried anything in my butt shaped like this before but it was surprisingly comfortable and secure. It can be worn for hours without any problems and the dimensions make it ideal for newcomers. The remote control allows a partner to be involved and the power was as expected from this wonderful company. It doubles as a clitoral toy too, which makes it even better. Third place goes to another So Divine product – the Sweet Sensation. A classic teardrop shaped plug with a sparkly crystal for extra aesthetic credit and princess play. I spent 2017 recommending this plug to everyone who asked about beginners anal products and now they’ve introduced two new sizes for those at more advanced levels.

The worst anal product was without a doubt the Swiss Navy Silicone Anal Lubricant that I tested for the Pleasure Panel back in April. Lots of the other reviewers reached the same conclusion as me. This  lubricant had a confusing consistency, not what I’d usually associate with a silicone-based product, and it just was not thick enough for comfortable anal sex. It contains clove which is supposed to be a mild numbing agent. Whilst I didn’t feel any loss of sensation, I gained an odour to my nostrils that was repulsive. This is one lube that I wouldn’t recommend to anyone. It may even be worse than Durex.

Before we conclude this round-up and get on with 2018, I want to award one company with the title of retailer of the year. This company was one of the rare few that had no ethical problems, social media screw-ups, offensive outbursts or customer service complaints and I believe they deserve to be credited for that. Peepshow Toys are a great company that stock only body-safe products, post helpful guides and articles from sex-positive people and genuinely care about their customers. I worked with them on several product reviews last year and have nothing but good things to say about my experiences with them so far. Please support them by visiting their store and following them on social media!

What were your best and worst sex toys of 2017? Let me know in the comments below!

Exclusive Christmas Offer: Grab a bargain at Lovehoney!

Want to grab some sexy bargains over the festive season? Well, now you can! We have teamed up with the wonderful people at Lovehoney to exclusively offer readers of our blog 20% off some of our favourite products. Discounts will be added to the basket automatically after clicking through the links on this page or following the links on our tweets. You can use this offer code more than once but it only runs until December 25th 2017. The products included in this offer were all hand-picked. Some are old favourites, some are new favourites and some are things we thought were perfect for gifting. Below are just a few of the products you’ll find on this offer…

We-Vibe Tango

We-Vibe are one of our go-to brands so naturally they appeared multiple times on our list. We started with the famous Tango, the love of our life, the holy grail of bullet vibes and the most trusted vibrator in our collection. We loved ours so much that we ordered a second. If you don’t have this little gem yet then now would be the perfect chance. If the Tango isn’t for you, how about a Wish or Ditto? Wish is perfect for people who love broad clitoral stimulation and Ditto is great for first-time anal players who want their partners to be in control.

Tantus Vamp Super Soft

Any sex toy fan should have at least one high-quality silicone dildo in their collection and what better brand to offer this than Tantus. We chose the Super Soft Vamp & Curve for this offer because of their versatility, gender neutral factors and general awesomeness. Both can be used in a harness, both can be used for anal stimulation and both can hit the g-spot and/or prostate. Nat was surprised by how much she liked the Super Soft Vamp after trying the original but it makes the toy more enjoyable and manageable for backdoor use.

Lovehoney Desire Rimming Butt Plug

For an indulgent treat that can’t be beat, look no further than Lovehoney’s Desire range. If you’ve always liked the idea of the We-Vibe Tango but prefer softer materials then the Desire Bullet might just be the toy for you. It’s almost as powerful as the Tango but it has a silky soft silicone exterior for added comfort. The Rimming Butt Plug on the other hand is the ideal gift for someone who wants to try something a little bit different and it even comes with a remote for some sneaky public play.
