Review: VeDO Wink Rabbit Vibrator

One of the most popular categories of sex toys are the dual stimulators, or as they are more commonly known, the rabbit vibrators. They are often the first variation of vibrator that come to mind at the thought of enhancing solo pleasure but this comes with some complications. The famous episode of Sex In The City where Charlotte falls in love with her rabbit is a prime example of why these vibrators are so broadly known and why so many people think they are the best choice when shopping at a sex store. What many people don’t realise is that these toys are completely anatomy dependent. Not every rabbit suits every vulva due to the differences in anatomy. This can make finding the right one frustrating and expensive. However buying through Lovehoney gives you the option to send back the bunnies that don’t work with your hutch for up to a year after purchase with no questions asked.

Vedo Wink Rabbit VibratorA white and purple box arrived with a simple product shot on the front, description and diagram on the back and further product shots on the sides. Inside the box I found the VeDO Wink within some plastic casing and a product guide. It doesn’t give much away as it’s more of a small product catalogue than a user manual but there are some of the features listed within and everything else can be found on the box.

The Wink is made up of a silicone body and finished with a plastic handle. It’s completely body-safe, odourless, non-toxic and hypoallergenic. The silicone feels velvety and silky to the touch. It’s surprisingly luxurious considering the price tag but has the expected resistance to its silicone surface. I would recommend using a generous amount of water-based lubricant to remove this and aid penetration. Rinse before each use to remove lint from the surface and again thoroughly afterwards with soap to remove any fluids that may be trapped within the subtle ridged lines on the internal arm.

Vedo Wink Rabbit VibratorUnfortunately this is not a rechargeable vibrator, so get a pack of double A’s on hand. To insert the two required batteries, unscrew the base and drop them inside the compartment. Frustratingly there was no diagram inside indicating which way around the batteries should be placed so I had to swap them a few times to get the device working. The base has to be secured in place firmly after removing or replacing the batteries to ensure that it remains fully waterproof.

VeDo’s Wink has a two button control panel. The top button operates the internal arm and the bottom one controls the external. You can press and hold either button for a few seconds to begin. Tap the arm you wish to control to cycle through the speed options and press and hold to turn off. These arms can be controlled independently which means you can use this vibrator with one arm turned off completely if you wish. You can also use completely different settings on each arm if you prefer more intensity in one area and less in the other.

Each button has a number written on them to signify the amount of functions available in the arm that button controls. There are twelve settings in the shaft and three in the clitoral arm. The shaft has three constant modes of vibration and nine patterns whilst the external arm just has the constant modes. I prefer steady vibrations as I find patterns irritating but for people who do enjoy them there are a multitude of options to explore.

Vedo Wink Rabbit VibratorThe three speeds in the external arm are buzzy but tolerable. I usually prefer my vibrations to be rumbly and deeply stimulating but as long as I’m not wanting to force the toy away from my clitoris because of numbing sensations then I’m happy. Considering the source these vibrations have a first-rate amount of strength behind them and although they don’t penetrate to all of the nerve endings in that area they can bring me to orgasm. It’s not the strongest external arm I’ve ever felt on a dual stimulator, but it is one of the better battery-powered ones out there.

As for the shafts vibrations, the story is similar. Also high-pitched, buzzy and surface level stimulation. The patterns in particular were high-frequency but as I don’t use them this wasn’t problematic for me. One thing I noticed about the shaft was that the highest intensity of constant vibration felt stronger than the highest intensity in the clitoral arm. I personally need my power surge the other way around so this wasn’t the best news for me although it would be ideal for people who prefer stronger internal vibes.

The internal arm offers up 6.75 inches of insertable length which makes it one of the longer rabbits I’ve come into contact with. A lot of the others that I’ve reviewed previously measure in between four and five and a half inches. The extra length is fun to have on days that I’m craving deeper penetration but it’s also a hinderance on other days. I may not have periods anymore but my cervix still sits lower at certain times of the month which makes the vaginal canal shallower and the toy more likely to cause discomfort. If you have a shallow vaginal canal, tilted uterus and/or struggle with length for other reasons then this wouldn’t be a good choice for you. The arm might be slim at just over four inches in circumference but it’s rigid and can batter the cervix when used at the wrong angle or time of the month.

It’s not an everyday occurrence to find rabbits that fit my body well, sometimes I find one that I can make work despite some problems but only a handful have been perfect. The Wink would have been perfect with less length as the clitoral arm is ideal for me. It’s short and rests in place over the clitoris, which is a rare treat. I’m not sure what the term is for an external arm that doesn’t resemble a rabbit-ear or two split ears, but whatever it’s called works well for me.

Vedo Wink Rabbit VibratorAchieving blended orgasms with the Wink can and does happen, but it depends on the positioning of my cervix, how sensitive I’m feeling and how in tune I’m feeling with the sensations. I didn’t have much luck with the internal arm stimulating the g-spot despite it having the level of firmness I usually ask for as there wasn’t enough of a defined curve for my body. I can make the magic happen from general vaginal and simultaneous clitoris contact if both arms are turned up to full strength as long as I’m properly aroused and well lubricated.

Overall, I have mixed feelings about the VeDO Wink. There are a bunch of positive things going for it such as the easy to use control panel, accurate clitoral fit, quiet motor, body-safe material, power levels and classic aesthetics but there are also a handful of negatives. Those things include being battery-operated, having a lack of precise curve below the head, having a stronger internal arm when a vast amount of people with vulvas get off on clitoral stimulation and the length. I like it sometimes, but other times I find it uncomfortable due to the positioning of my cervix and uterus. I would be able to recommend it to people who prefer deep penetration, like strong internal vibrations and want a slim shaft and advise those who like slimmer, thicker toys with more external power to look elsewhere.

Review: Black Rose Wrist-to-Collar Restraint Set

If you want good quality, pretty and affordable bondage pieces that are suitable for all experience levels then the Black Rose collection from Bondage Boutique could be a perfect contender. After receiving a few items from the line in a mystery bundle last year I was excited to see some more additions added recently. I was particularly interested in the Wrist-to-Collar Restraint Set as I’ve been looking for an intermediate collar for a while and this aesthetically pleasing combo appeared to tick all of the boxes. Did it still tick those boxes after testing it? Let’s find out.

Made from faux leather, this set is suitable for vegans and people who like to avoid the real deal. It feels supple, high quality and doesn’t disappoint in the quality department. The gorgeous black rose aesthetic that I love so much patterns the exterior and the finishings are made from matte black metal. There is a connecting chain, several buckles and multiple D-rings. All of them can handle strong tugs and sharp movements as they are well secured to the restraints. I have no concerns about them breaking off or coming loose whatsoever.

Tom and I both identity as switches so we like to have restraints in our collection that work for both of us. It makes finding suitable items for sessions much easier and allows us to swap over halfway through if we want. We have both worn the Bondage Boutique Beginners Collar previously which gave us an indication that the depth of this particular collar would be fine. If you or your partner have only worn the thin choker style collars before then this one may feel more restrictive and uncomfortable at first but it doesn’t completely restrict head movements or force your head back like a posture collar would.

I wore the collar set first and found it fairly comfortable. It wasn’t as comfortable as the beginners collar mentioned above but that was to be expected as this one has no neoprene padding. The faux leather is soft enough for a couple of hours wear. According to my partner I have a small neck so finding collars that are adjustable enough can be problematic. We got this one tight enough to fit as it has nine eyes on the straps to suit a range of sizes. I wear it through the seventh hole which leaves enough room to get two fingers underneath to relieve contact if needed but not enough room to be ineffective.

His turn to wear it came next. He agreed with me in regards to comfort and said that he preferred this to the other basic collars in our collection as it’s more restrictive, allowing him to embrace his submissive side. He has a larger neck circumference than I do but the collar also managed to fit him well. He wears it through the second or third hole depending how tight he wants it on that given day. Overall, it can adjust between 12.5 inches and 17.5 inches. It is completed with a detachable lead that can be removed instantly if needed due to the quick-release clip.

As for the wrist restraints, I also struggle finding these to fit however I knew I would be fine with these as we own the regular wrist cuffs from this range. These have seven eyes on the strap and I wear them on the second to last hole for a tight, secure fight that I can’t wriggle free from. My partner wears them through the second hole when it’s his turn to be restrained and says these are some of the most comfortable wrist restraints he’s ever worn. These can be adjusted between 5.5 inches and 10 inches.

I briefly touched on the fact that my partner likes the idea of being able to quickly remove the lead if needed. I think this is a great idea for those who may be new to restraints, safety conscious (always good when engaging in bondage situations) or unsure about being controlled via a leash. The quick-release clips are also attached to the wrist restraints so can be unclipped from the collar in a matter of seconds should there be a spoken safe word or other emergency situation. The only thing that can’t be removed instantly is the collar as this needs unbuckling first. Quick release clips are not only good for fast removal as they can be alternatively used for introducing other pieces of restraint.

To conclude, we were more than satisfied with this set. The rose patterned design makes it non-intimidating and the release clips make this set perfect for beginners and intermediate users. We were impressed that we were able to make the collar and the wrist restraints fit us both despite the differences in our measurements. As a result of this I’m happy to state that they are suitable for a wide range of people, just check in with the above measurements first to be sure that includes you. The only thing we didn’t like about the set was the lead. It’s very plain and basic in comparison to the rest of the set which was disappointing. A matching lead would have been the perfect finishing touch and I wouldn’t have minded if that had amped up the cost by a few pounds.

Review: House of Eros Dark Red Dagger Strap

As the winter nights draw in, my darker side seems to comes out. When it’s cold outside, maybe even raining, hailing or snowing too, many people gather inside to get warm. Some of those people might be snuggling under a blanket with a hot chocolate in one hand and a book in the other whilst others finally get around to sorting out that boring junk drawer they’ve been meaning to clear out for months. Me on the other hand, I’ll probably be found sleeping or engaging in some aspect of kink. If you’ve played around with bondage before then you’ll know that taking part in scenes can heat things up in more terms than just temperature. It’s certainly my favourite way to regulate body heat so what better time than the festive season to introduce a new tool to my box?

House of Eros Red Dagger StrapWhen I was asked what I’d like to review all I could think about was something I could hit with or be hit with. So that was exactly what I got. Bondage Bunnies selected the House of Eros Dark Red Dagger Strap for me and I was very pleased with their choice.

This is the type of implement that I would have chosen for myself and I’ve been meaning to try out this highly rated brand for a while now so first impressions contained lots of excitement. The packaging was minimal, just a plastic pouch with a brand tag attached. It doesn’t really need anything extra or fancy but it may be nice to see safety information included for buyers who are new to bondage tools.

One of the first things I noticed about the Red Dagger Strap was the smell. It is made entirely from leather and the smell of that is rather prominent. Have you ever been to a bike shop that was filled with vintage leathers? It was kind of like that but kinkier. Leather is a premium material and that means the majority of products made with it are high quality. I would say that this piece was rather well-made and smooth to the touch but the edges hadn’t been finished as evenly as the rest of the strap. This wasn’t much of an inconvenience or disappointment to me but it may bother some people.

Blindfolded with my wrists in chains, I could feel the suspense running through my veins. I lay on my stomach and waited for the hits but first my partner decided to do some sensory bits. This is important when engaging in a scene as it helps set the mood but also ready the skin. He started off with a soft feather tickler, moving it in circles on my back slowly then quicker. He traced each bare part of skin he could see before switching to a pinwheel that gently pricked me. The idea behind all of this softer play is drawing the blood to the surface, making the nerve endings stand up and prepare for further contact whilst building up the anticipation in the receivers (my) mind.

House of Eros Red Dagger StrapFrom here, the warm-up is complete and it’s time to hand over all control to him. He sometimes likes to start with a couple of harsh slaps then move into alternating gentle taps but other times that routine will be reversed. It always progresses to increased amounts of pressure with the later swings and this is usually what feels best for me. I enjoy the intense sensations that a hard slap will bring which for this particular strap is a very tingly sting. Impact tools are generally either thuddy or stingy and this one is definitely the latter in our experience.

The hits from this implement are more precise than I expected so I wouldn’t recommend it for a beginner or those who’ve not yet progressed past dual-sided paddle slaps. It has a long frame with not much width which explains why it gives the feelings that it gives. The smaller the surface area is, the sharper the sting seems to be. Each time this strap makes contact with the body it leaves a reminder in the form of red marks. It hasn’t made me bruise or left with cuts that don’t fade after a couple of days, which makes me think this would be an ideal choice for intermediate players or people who can’t have long-lasting markings.

House of Eros Red Dagger Strap

Overall, I think this strap felt brilliant every time its cold leather surface made contact with my skin. It makes threatening sounds with each movement, regardless of how aggressively it is used and I think I made an equal amount of sound. The only thing that I would change about this item would be the edges. If they were slightly smoother then I think this spanker would have been positively perfect. For the price, I would still highly recommend this to intermediate players and people who like precise pain.

Review: So Divine Wild Thing Jewelled Booty Plug

During 2017, a few companies have shot up on my radar and So Divine are definitely one of them. I have been rather impressed with the quality of the products they’ve released so far and I adore their message of producing safe, affordable sex toys for all. They started out with mini bullets, single speed bullets, classic vibrators and massaging wands that doubled as internal vibrators. Then they continued to expand their range by launching the first butt plug, a petite toy named the Sweet Sensation. It has been my go-to plug to recommend to first-timers ever since I tried it and I’d hoped they’d add more to their anal offerings. A few weeks ago I received word that they’d added two more sizes and I opted to review the larger of the two, the Wild Thing. I will be purchasing the medium Bootylicious to complete the set and I’ll also be hoping to see some vibrating options appear in the near future.

It arrived in typical So Divine fashion – a simple purple and white box with a product photo on the front. It points out a few key features on the side of the box and some instructions for use on the back. Inside, there’s another box which contains the plug, two changeable jewels, a small velvet storage pouch and the information leaflet that comes with all products. It just gives a quick introduction to the brand and some basic cleaning information.

Wild Thing is made from soft silicone. This is of course non-toxic, odourless, hypoallergenic and completely body safe. There are no latex or phthalates involved either. A good, hygienic material is necessary for any sort of sex toy but it’s a must-have for butt stuff. The silky silicone has less resistance to it than many other silicone plugs I’ve encountered so there’s not much unwanted friction to remove. It is an anal toy however so this doesn’t mean you should scrimp on the lubricant as we all know the anus doesn’t lubricate itself. A high quality water based anal concoction is what you’ll need and I’d recommend being generous with it as this is a large plug.

Cleaning wise, silicone can occasionally maintain odours after use but this wasn’t an issue for me. For those who may encounter this problem, just bleach the plug (after removing the jewel) with a 10% bleach solution, place it in the dishwasher on a sanitize setting with no detergent or boil it for a few moments. You should clean with one of the above methods if the plug is going to be used by more than one person otherwise rinsing and spritzing with antibacterial cleaner is more than enough.

The Wild Thing Booty Plug has a traditional shape. It has a pointed tip with a rounded body and a slender neck. It has a circular base complete with changeable jewels that is wider than the plugs widest point to prevent unwanted travel. You should never use anything in your butt that doesn’t have a flared base as they can get sucked up/lost and create awkward hospital visits to get them removed. This plug is perfectly safe, easy to insert with some lube and has not slipped out on me during use. I have no concerns about it traveling or moving out-of-place as the base is both sturdy and secure.

So what are the dimensions? It has an overall length of four inches and an insertable length of 2.3 inches. It’s short and unobtrusive like its smaller counterpart but has a circumference of five inches that provides a filled sensation. It is not huge but it definitely should not be used without some slow build up and experience. I have been engaging in anal play and anal sex for a couple of years now so the size wasn’t an issue for me but those who are new to butt stuff should start with the Sweet Sensation and move on to the Bootylicious before attempting the Wild Thing.

The neck and base of this plug have some flex to them which gives the initial impression that they’d be hard to insert and position but there were no issues with this at all. If anything, it makes insertion easier as I can get the correct angle for comfortable entry. As I’d tried So Divine’s beginner plug I knew that I couldn’t accidentally pop out the crystal when pushing against it, as its supported well by the surrounding silicone, but it can be removed easily to change the jewel to one of the other color options. It comes with a gold, light purple and silver jewel that can be changed when wanted. All three colours look very pretty when worn as they sparkle and reflect the light beautifully. It gives a partner a nice view when wearing it and adds some extra details to a plug that would be plain otherwise. I have enjoyed matching the jewels to the finishing touches on the lingerie I wear and absolutely love the fact that I now have three plugs in one.

In regards to how comfortable this is to wear, I’d say very. This is the kind of plug that I can wear for long-term use without having any discomfort. If large plugs are new to you then build up the wear time slowly to not overwhelm your body and prepare to relubricate as needed. I can wear it for three to four hours without needing to top up as it’s so sleek and soft that additional lubricant isn’t needed until that point. Others may need to add more lube sooner, but this is how it worked out for me.

What do butt plugs do other than look pretty? If being worn by someone with a vagina then it can make the canal feel tighter which can be fun for both parties during intercourse. This size definitely created a more obvious difference than the smaller version which my partner liked. I’m naturally quite tight down there anyway as I do kegel exercises regularly and I haven’t had children but there is a difference when wearing a plug that no amount of kegels could achieve. Plugs also place a subtle but noticeable pressure on the back wall of the vagina which makes PIV more enjoyable for me. I’m not a huge fan of vaginal sex but it is better for me when wearing a plug and I can orgasm pretty easily from the combined stimulation without even adding vibration (something I must have during sex without a plug).

As a result of better sex I’ve been wearing this plug on a regular basis since it arrived. I do think this is a great size for my experience level and being able to wear it comfortably during sex without it slipping out is wonderful. I can orgasm in time (or close to it) with my partner whilst wearing the Wild Thing which makes sex feels more intimate and connecting. It enables me to enjoy a sex act that I’m not usually that bothered about which is great for my partner and allows us to create a deeper sexual bond. I would actively recommend this plug by So Divine to people who can handle the size and I’m looking forward to seeing how they expand their anal range in the coming months.
