Review: Partner Whale Couples Vibrator

The term “couples vibrator” is one that sparks a great deal of debate on social media, blogs and forums. This is because these types of sex toys tend to be inclusive to one particular type of couple (a straight, male/female partnership) and don’t vouch for other couplings. I’m not majorly fond of the term myself but for the purpose of this review I shall be using it as this toy has clearly been designed with a couple in mind. I bet you guessed that based on the name Partner though. I do think this was intended to be used by a straight pairing but I believe that anyone in a partnership consisting of a vulva, clitoris and something penetrative (be that a finger, a penis or a dildo) could potentially make it work.

I haven’t tried many couples vibrators over the past couple of years that I’ve been reviewing, but the handful I have tried have all been at the higher end of the pricing scale. I was intrigued by the Partner range for that very reason as all of their current models come in at entry-level to mid-range price tags. I understand that not everybody wants to, or can afford to, splash out over $100 on a We-Vibe Sync or Classic, so I had high hopes that one of these models would be good enough for me to recommend as a more affordable alternative. I have tried all three of the existing models now so it’s time to answer the big question. Which one is the best? The Partner? The Partner Plus? Or the uber cute Partner Whale?

Arriving in a white and blue cardboard box with a glossy product shot on the front and back, I was pleased with the presentation. The images were tasteful and gave off a welcoming, non-intimidating vibe that would be ideal for those who may be new to the sex toy scene or introducing a toy within their partnership for the first time. The box lists some key features on the sides such as the number of functions, materials used and the fact that it’s waterproof. Inside, I found the Partner Whale, the charging cable and a user manual. There’s no storage included.

Made from a combination of velvety soft, smooth silicone and a touch of abs plastic, there’s no concerns about the safety of this toy. It’s non-toxic, latex and phthalate free, odourless and hypoallergenic.   I expected the Partner Whale to have some drag to its silicone body because of the ridged texture on the internal arm but there wasn’t much at all. It has some, as silicone always does, but nothing that a quick coating of water based lubricant couldn’t remove. I lube up both the internal arm and the area of the external arm that makes contact with the clitoris for comfort. After use, I give it a thorough rinse with warm soapy water and leave it to dry.

It is a rechargeable vibe with a USB connector on one side and a magnetic cap at the other which attaches to the corresponding prongs on the toy. The control panel flashes whilst the Whale is charging and the light goes solid once complete. The manual states that each charge should take around two hours, which I’ve found to be accurate, and this should provide up to sixty-five minutes of use. We’ve found the use time a little less but we tend to use it on the high power speed consistently.

There’s only one button on this vibrator and that is located on the external arm. Press it once firmly for a few seconds, wait for the control panel to light up and the vibrations will begin. Tap to cycle through the ten available functions and press and hold down for a few seconds to turn off. One button means it’s easy to understand but it also means you have to scroll through all of the settings if you miss the one you were looking for. I’d have loved a central power button with up and down arrows to change settings more conveniently. I hope this will be the case with future Partner vibrators.

The Whale has the same irritating order of patterns as the other two models that I tried. The manual states that pressing and holding the button down for two seconds will start the vibrations at the lowest massage level but from my experience with the Partner range so far, this isn’t true. All of them have started on high intensity before going down to medium, low and then the seven patterns. This is deeply confusing to me as the majority of people seem to like to start at the bottom and work up to full strength, not start on full and crawl back down.

I personally whack my vibrators up to full power straight away on most occasions so this wasn’t majorly problematic for me but I can see why it would annoy other people who prefer the opposite. I like a ton of strength with rumbly vibrations but this combination seems to be hard to find in these types of couples vibrators. Partner’s Whale doesn’t have any depth to its vibrations whatsoever. All of the sensations are surface level and buzzy. They couldn’t reach most of my external nerve endings. They do have a reasonable of strength to them and the buzzing is tolerable but it takes a while for me to get off from them.

The Whale has a very similar shape to the Partner Plus but the dimensions are different. The external arm is 3.5 inches around at its widest point which covers the entire clitoral area. The internal arm has 2.3 inches of usable length and a maximum girth of 2.5 inches. This is not very wide at all so I expected my above average partner to have no problems inserting him underneath it. My partner has a larger girth that provides a full feeling at the best of the times so I did feel rather like I had reached full capacity with both of them inside. If it had been much wider then I think I would have struggled to accommodate them both but it was manageable with warm-up and splashings of lube.

I can’t say that our encounters with the Whale have been the most comfortable sexual experiences for my partner. He felt that thrusting was difficult with this toy as the external arm kept sliding out of position each time he pulled back, poking his schlong. I think external stimulation is the most important part of a couples vibrator so the fact that the pressure kept disconnecting as the external arm moved back ruined the experience for me. This was not an issue with the Partner or Partner Plus so I can’t put my finger on a reason why this occurred with the Whale. I would have thought that the subtle texture made for better grip than the silky soft silicone that the others have but apparently not.

One thing I loved about the Whale was the internal arm. I wasn’t fond of the squishy, flexible arm that the previous models had and Partner have improved on that massively with this version. It has a firmer shaft that gives me adequate pressure and the added bonus of ridged texture on its inside. These ridges aren’t defined enough to bring me to climax on their own but I always appreciate some love and attention against my front wall. I felt the shaft was just about long enough to hint, grind and push against my g-spot in sync with my partners movements but it may not fit everybody’s anatomy in the same way.

Overall, I think the Whale has adorable aesthetics, a fitting colour scheme, better firmness than the previous two models and fun texture to add some extra flavour. It has all of the benefits of the others such as body-safe materials and being rechargeable, quiet and waterproof. It unfortunately also has the downside I’ve commented on previously – buzzy vibrations. For the next model I would love to see a change in motor. Low frequency, rumbly vibrations would be fantastic. I’d also love to see a three button control panel for ease of changing the settings. If those two things were combined with the shape of the Partner Plus, the dimensions of the Partner and the aesthetics and texture of the Whale then I think I’d have found my perfect match.

Review: Dreamgirl Tartan Tease Schoolgirl Costume

I’ve been trying to cut back on the amount of lingerie reviews that I post to my Lovehoney account as I seem to have reviewed so much that I’ve made my profile load slowly – oops! As a result my still-to-review box has been overflowing with gorgeous pieces that are waiting to be written about. I decided it was time to write something new and as I rooted through the options I came across this piece and knew I had to talk about it. The Dreamgirl Tartan Tease is one of my favourite costumes that I currently own and certainly one of my best schoolgirl related outfits. It is often a struggle to find the right combination between sexy and slutty with certain costumes but this particular one has struck the perfect balance.

Dreamgirl Tartan Tease Schoolgirl CostumeArriving in simple fashion, the Tartan Tease comes inside a cardboard sleeve with an image of a model wearing the outfit on the front and back. The outfit was wrapped in some plastic inside and the included novelty glasses were in their own plastic pouch. I hadn’t actually realized glasses were included as I assumed they were just a photo prop (as is often the disappointing case with outfits like this) so I was pleased to see them as I unraveled the plastic.

I’ll keep the quality and materials section of this post short and sweet as it’s important to know, but boring to read. The top portion of the outfit is made from a stretchy mesh. The bottom portion of the outfit consists of a blue, black and grey plaid combination and there’s also a tie attached to the upper half made from the same fabric. The glasses are made from a hard plastic. The outfit felt great quality and had no obvious flaws. The glasses were also surprisingly sturdy considering the fact that they’re a novelty extra.

I own a multitude of schoolgirl costumes but this one is the only ‘all in one’ type. Most of the ones that I own are a skirt and cropped shirt combo, whereas this one is more of a dress. It is a one size garment so I had concerns that it may not fit. It is said to accommodate a size six to sixteen and I wear a UK four. I did not mind taking the risk as Lovehoney have a wonderful no questions asked returns policy for any and all items that are not suitable. It fit me beautifully which leads me to believe that it would be tight-fitting on someone who wears a sixteen. It isn’t as stretchy as I thought it would be. If you wear fourteen or above then the plus size version might be more comfortable for you.

Dreamgirl Tartan Tease Schoolgirl CostumeThe shirt is very sheer. It doesn’t leave much to the imagination, but I suppose that’s the idea. I personally wear nipple pasties underneath to add some anticipation and not give everything up straight away. I find this has a better effect on my partner and teases him efficiently. It doesn’t provide any bust support whatsoever, which was fine for me as I have a basically non-existent bust and don’t need it. However, you could wear a nude or white bra underneath this if wanted or needed. It makes for a nice alternative to the pasties too.

It’s extremely short. Just skims past my butt and I’m only a mere five foot. If you’re taller than me (which lets face it wouldn’t be difficult or shocking) then this may show off a lot of cheek. If you’re around 5’11 or above then I suspect that this outfit will be more of a shirt on you and may not suit the designed aesthetic. It is a flowing style of skirt which skims the hips nicely and makes the wearer’s waist look smaller and their thighs slimmer. It doesn’t cling to the stomach or draw attention to the area at all which I thought it might due to the material. It’s incredibly flattering and super-duper sexy.

Dreamgirl Tartan Tease Schoolgirl CostumeIt fastens via a velcro strap around the neck so it’s quick to put on and tear off. This makes the fit adjustable along with the aid of the elastic band around the top. This is comfortable and pretty supportive. It doesn’t dig in and provides a decent amount of stretch to accommodate several sizes.

It doesn’t come with suspender straps but you could wear silicone banded hold-ups with or wear a flat suspender belt under the skirt and attach stockings that way. I opted for a slightly different option and wore suspender tights (crotchless of course) and some Pleaser heels.

Overall, I think this outfit is lovely. I’m fond of the colour scheme, the design and the fit. There wasn’t anything particularly wrong with it. I can still remember my partners reaction when I wore this for the first time and I can feel myself melting at the thought of those memories. His jaw dropped as I entered the bedroom and I couldn’t help but giggle. He managed to squeeze out a few words before fetching our favourite spanking tools and throwing me on the bed. Those words were “May I have a word with you miss? I believe you’re in three major violations of our dress code”. I never did find out what the third violation was…

You can purchase the Dreamgirl Tartan Tease Schoolgirl Costume (£29.99) from Lovehoney. It is also available in plus size for the same price. Yay for equal pricing!

Review: Toyfriend Nosy Silicone G-Spot Vibrator

When the opportunity arose to test the Toyfriend Nosy for Betty’s Toy Box, I happily volunteered. I was extremely intrigued by the shape and dimensions of this vibrator and the colour caught and captured my full attention. I am so used to seeing pinks, purples and blacks in this industry so when I come across something bright and beautiful like this I get really excited. It comes in a cute sunshine yellow and happens to be the first toy in my ever-expanding collection that comes in this shade. I dig it. It also happens to be the first toy I’ve tried from this brand. All I knew about Toyfriend beforehand was that they were made by Tickler, the Swedish brand associated with the founder of Lelo.

It arrives in a white and yellow cardboard box with a cut out viewing window in the front. It’s simplistic and plain, but does the job of protecting the item inside. The back of the box offered a description, some instructions for use and basic care directions. Inside, I found the Nosy in some plastic casing alongside a small leaflet that introduces the various Toyfriend models. This product does not come with any storage so be sure to pick some up separately to keep it in great condition.

Non-toxic, latex free, phthalate free and hypoallergenic, the Nosy meets all of my body-safe criteria. It’s made from silicone which is notorious for having some resistance and creating a bit of a dragging sensation, but it’s pretty minimal on this vibrator. I only found drag occurring around the embossed brand name on one side of the shaft as the rest is very smooth, soft and well polished leaving little to no friction. Toyfriend recommend using water based lubricant with the Nosy anyway, so this would reduce the drag if it were there. It’s waterproof so can be rinsed with warm soapy water after each use and left to dry naturally. Just be sure that the battery compartment is in place tightly first.

This is a battery operated vibrator that takes two triple a’s. These surprisingly come included, which makes a nice change, and these are placed inside the toy upon arrival. All that you need to do is remove the piece of paper inside the compartment then screw the base back on. On the base there is a singular button that controls all of the toys operation. Press once to start the vibrations, tap again to cycle through the functions and press and hold to turn off.

There are five functions to choose from. Two constant speeds of differing intensities and three patterns. As usual, the patterns were not for me. I find them buzzy, off-putting and generally not my thing but I can vouch for the constant speeds being fun. I had no idea what to expect in terms of strength, but I definitely thought it would be less than it was. It starts out on the stronger intensity which is powerful straight out of the gate and probably just over average. I’m a power queen that can struggle with battery operated vibrators as they often don’t have the motor power I need, but I do think the Nosy has great strength for the type of batteries it takes. Its vibrations travel well throughout the entire shaft although there are two points that are most obvious. Lower portion of the shaft and the head. The strength between them isn’t as strong but I think that’s due to the bend.

Toyfriend Nosy Silicone G-Spot VibratorIf I follow the curve of the shaft then there is 8.6 inches of overall length. This gives me around 6.5 inches of usable length with just enough room remaining to grip onto. The head has a maximum girth of around 3.7 inches at the widest point and the shaft has a consistent width of 4.3 inches. The head is usually the widest point of a g-spot vibrator which makes this toy a bit different, but it doesn’t stop it from being any better or worse than other styles.

I decided to try this for clitoral play before I used it internally as I thought the head resembled a pebble shape which has seemed to work for me in the past. It offers a smooth tapered tip that can provide some precision, albeit not as much as a bullet could, but enough for me to get something from it. The Nosy is firm and inflexible which makes it very easy to get a good amount of pressure and grind the toy into the pubic mound for maximum contact and stimulation. The vibrations felt good clitorally and I was able to get my rocks off although it did take a while. I personally need more intensity for clitoral stimulation than I do for vaginal, so being able to orgasm in this way gave me high hopes for the internal stuff.

You may have noticed that the shape of the Toyfriend Nosy is very unusual. It’s not your typical g-spot vibrator that features a bit of a bulbed head and subtle curve. It reminds me of a couples vibrator actually. If I place this next to the Partner then I think the tip and curve of the Nosy look similar to the shape of the external arm and bend on the Partner. It’s definitely different, unique and unusual so I was excited to put it to the test. I inserted it with the head pointing up towards to my g-spot and noticed that the part of the toy where the curve ends and the shaft begins is exactly when I feel the toy find it. It is an odd-looking device but contours to my anatomy very well.

Toyfriend Nosy Silicone G-Spot VibratorIf I rock the top portion of the shaft (which I like to refer to as the hook as it kind of resembles one) back and forth gently then the firmness of the head almost melts into my g-spot. It gets all the right pleasure spots and provides a perfect amount of pressure. I’d consider it to be more of an internal massage than a battering into oblivion which is something like the nJoy Pure Wand would do. It is a gentle experience and subtle seducer but it is definitely pleasurable and almost effortless to use. I don’t have to move it much to benefit so it’s ideal for a lazy masturbation session.

I may have more powerful vibrating insertables in my collection but that doesn’t mean this one is incapable of doing its job. I can reach an orgasm with it. Admittedly, it doesn’t give me super strong or intense orgasms nor does it make me squirt, but it does give some relief. It’s a quick burst of pleasure rather than a drawn out finale which is my preference for internal stuff. I prefer my quick release clitorally so the way that this worked with my body was sort of mixed up. If I could have climaxed from using it clitorally at a faster pace and had a longer but stronger orgasm internally then it would have been perfect for me.

Overall, I think the Toyfriend Nosy is a decent sex toy but we have different habits. It’s not quite the right product for my body, my preferences or the circumstances I like to masturbate in. That doesn’t make it a bad product though. We can’t all be compatible with every sex toy or we’d find them boring and predictable. I do think this would be a good choice for people who prefer quick bursts of internal pleasure after a slow build up, people who are still exploring their g-spot preferences and people who have weak wrists or joints and aren’t able to thrust much. If you like bright colours, quiet vibrators, unusual shapes and soft silicone on top of all that then this may be a dream come true for you. If you’d rather have the gradual build up followed by explosions of strong orgasms that leave you shivering for ten minutes afterwards then I would look elsewhere.

You can purchase the Toyfriend Nosy ($53.99/£41.38) from Betty’s Toy Box. I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!

Review: VeDO GEESlim Silicone G-Spot Vibrator

Before I get stuck into this review I want to tell you a little about the company who sent me the product. That company is Peepshow Toys. If you’ve ever checked out their site then you’ll have noticed that they only stock body-safe sex toys, lubricants, bondage gear and other sexy essentials. I did my first set of reviews for them recently and absolutely fell in love with them, their site and their philosophy. They are extremely helpful and friendly and I love that they genuinely care about what us as customers put in and around our orifices. If you are new to sex toys and are unsure as to which materials are safe and which are not, then head over to Peepshow Toys and buy yourself something fun with complete peace of mind that you’re not getting something that will potentially harm you. I’m also going to shamelessly plug the fact that you can now get 10% off site wide with my code “NatandTom”.

I think the shape of the VeDO GEESlim is one that’s well documented. Virtually every sex shop I’ve ever visited has had at least one similarly shaped vibrator stocked. The dimensions may be slightly different from place to place, but all of the ones that I’ve come across have been made from hard plastic, look as cheap and basic as the price tag suggests and take batteries. The GEESlim is like an upgraded, luxurious take on a classic and it comes in pretty colours. I mean who doesn’t need more turquoise in their toy box? It also comes in the obvious choices of Foxy Pink and Into You Indigo but I love that there’s another option for those who want something different.

It arrives in simplistic, minimalistic packaging as expected. A white turquoise box with a product shot on the front, description and diagram on the back and further photos on the sides. Inside I found the VeDO GEESlim resting within some soft black casing and the charging cable and product guide were tucked away underneath. It doesn’t come with any storage but that was to be expected at this price point. One thing that I will say is that it may have been better to pack it in plastic rather than fluffy casing as some of it transferred onto the material of the vibrator.

As it’s made from silicone, lint is expected to be attracted to it but that generally happens whilst out of the box, not when inside of it. Be sure to rinse it thoroughly before using it to remove any traces of unwanted matter like pet hair or fluff. It is submersible so rinsing is not an issue but make sure the base is screwed back on firmly before taking it near the water. After use, clean with warm soapy water and dry naturally. This is a hypoallergenic, latex free and phthalate free material. It’s completely body-safe but it tends to have some amount of drag to its surface. There wasn’t much resistance in this case as the silicone is silky smooth and soft. A coating of water based lubricant clears any friction up anyway.

The GEESlim is not one of those cheap battery-operated models that are sold everywhere. It’s actually rechargeable. To charge, unscrew the plastic base, place the jack into the port inside and attach the USB to your laptop or other charging station. A red light will turn on to indicate that the charge has begun and it will turn green once finished. There’s no estimated charging or use time listed in the guide so I’d have to guess based on my experiences and say an hour and a half to charge with forty-five minutes of use time.

A singular button on the base is in charge of all operation. Tap it once to start the vibrations, tap again to cycle through the functions and press and hold for a couple of seconds to turn off. It’s easy to understand and perfect for a first time toy user. There are ten functions to choose from. There are three constant speeds of varying intensity and seven different patterns. The patterns are not for me as I prefer constant speeds, but there is a good variety for those who are interested.

Measuring up at just under seven inches in overall length, there are roughly six and a half inches that could be inserted. This is a perfect length for me as it doesn’t hit my cervix (when I’m fully relaxed) but I could also use whatever length I don’t need as extra handle room. I tend to use around five insertable inches and would recommend others do the same so you can get a better grip on the toy. The cap isn’t very easy to hold onto so having a small area of shaft free makes a lot of difference in how I can use and move the vibrator. It has just under 3.9 inches of girth around the widest point of the head which is a diameter of around 1.18 and the shaft is roughly 2.5 inches around.

Vibration wise, I was expecting less than I got. I think the vibrations are roughly average in terms of strength. There’s nothing particularly impressive about them and I don’t think they have enough oomph to satisfy a power queen but this makes the toy ideal for those who don’t need mega intensity or simply want to get a feel for vibrations for the first time. I thought the first setting was rumblyish, which was nice, but the settings that followed become buzzier. I wasn’t suddenly pushed into a beehive or anything as the sensations were tolerable, but ultimately are not my preference.

Although I said earlier that I’ve seen many vibrators of this shape, I’d never actually tried one of them. I have looked at them before and if I’d seen this particular one back when I was just getting into sex toys and g-spot stimulation, I think I would have purchased it. It would have been ideal for me as a beginner. It has the bulbous head and curve needed for this type of play and the slim shaft that follows is great for getting used to the feeling of something being inserted. It doesn’t push many limits and I see it as a gentle introduction to the g-spot.

The GEESlim is quite firm which is ideal for g-spot stuff and something that I think is an essential factor for me personally if I want to potentially reach an orgasm. I discovered that thrusting was the best technique to use as the head could then batter my g-spot in all the right ways. It’s more of a bump and grind situation than a gentle caress and I’m totally fine with that. I need there to be a certain level of pressure applied if I’m going to get the job finished and I can get that with this vibrator. It felt lovely without the vibrations but those added sensations definitely helped bring me to the edge faster.

Do you need discretion because of your living situation or privacy fears? If you answered yes, then I’m pleased to say that this should be fine. It’s not silent, but it’s not mains-powered wand loud either. It is somewhere between the two and can be disguised if needed. If I closed the door to the room I’m in and turn on a playlist then no-one else in the house has a clue what’s going on. I have used this with people in the next room with no problems at all, just for reference.

Overall, I think the VeDO GEESlim is a top-notch, good-quality, affordable vibrator that is perfect for first time users. If you want to explore your g-spot with a toy for the first time then this is a great choice. It may not wow you if you’ve already got a lot of sex toys, but it is an excellent choice for those who are earlier on in their sex toy journeys and collections. We all start somewhere and this is a timeless toy that can take you on a basic exploration tour of your body. If you’re not sure whether this type of play is for you, this is an option that will allow you to explore without breaking the bank and dropping dollars on crappy vibrators. It took me back to basics and whilst it didn’t blow my mind, I think it could have done when I was new and not spoiled by the likes of the Lelo Mona 2 and the We-Vibe Rave.

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!
