Review: Ann Summers Magnetize Rampant Rabbit

When I received my review package from Ann Summers recently, I was expecting to find two rabbits inside. Both of which I’d requested. The Moregasm Contour and The Curved One sat at the top of the box, but I could tell there was something underneath. A third rabbit. I had not heard of this one before and I could not find it on their website, so I had to do a little research and discover that it was part of a new collection. I was intrigued from the very first time I saw the Magnetize Rampant Rabbit as the box stated that it was powered by magnets. I remember thinking “well that’s new”. I hadn’t seen this kind of technology before and I was drawn in further by the promise of 147 possible function combinations. I have had this toy for several weeks now and I don’t think I’ve explored even half of these settings yet but I like that as it will keep me interested in this vibrator for some time. I have finally got to know it well enough to write this review, so read on to find out more about the Magnetize and how it works.

The packaging for this rabbit is different to that of the other Rampant Rabbits I’ve tried. It came in a white and silver box with pink lettering that had a clear plastic sleeve over the top for protection and easy toy viewing. The rabbit was laying within some polystyrene casing, with the user manual and charging cable stored underneath. It does not come with any storage which might disappoint some people (me included) as this is not the cheapest toy available, but you can pick one up separately at Ann Summers for a couple of extra pounds.

It’s a rechargeable vibrator and does come with some initial juice, maybe around ten minutes worth of use or so, which is not long enough for me to get use out of so I placed it on charge immediately. There’s no indication given in the manual as to how long this should take, so I’d have to guess based on my experiences and say it takes roughly two hours. It has provided me with around an hour of use per charge, which isn’t bad. Once the jack is plugged into the barely visible port on the toys base and the USB into a laptop port, a light should flash to indicate that the charging has begun. It will stay lit once finished.

Ann Summers have spoiled their customers with the gorgeous silicone that has been used on this vibrator. It feels extremely high-quality and luxurious and has the aesthetics to match. It looks elegant and feels smooth to the touch, providing only a low-level of drag. It has some drag to it around the texture of the shaft but nothing that a slick coating of water-based lubricant couldn’t solve. The external arm is quite firm so I discovered a dot of lubricant on this arm was helpful and allowed me to remain comfortable during longer sessions.

Silicone is hypoallergenic, odourless, non-toxic, latex free, phthalate free and easy to clean. This body-safe material only has one downside and that’s the fact that it attracts every spec of lint and cat hair known to man. Luckily, the Magnetize Rampant Rabbit is fully waterproof so it can be rinsed thoroughly with warm water before each use to remove any traces of unwanted fluff. After use, it can be rinsed again with soapy water or sex toy cleaner and dried with a lint free cloth.

There are three buttons on this device. The lightening bolt/flash button at the bottom of the control panel turns the toy on or off when pressed and held for a few seconds. You can also press it to change through the three available speeds when the other buttons are in use. The left button controls the ears and the right is in charge of the shaft. The buttons are actually small diagrams of each part of the rabbit, which I think was a nice touch. There are seven modes in the ears and shaft and the arms can be used alone or together, which is perfect for those of us who prefer high intensity on one arm and low intensity or patterns on the other.

Dimensions wise, the Magnetize is a pretty standard rabbit. It has a maximum insertable length of around four and a half inches, which seems to be the average amount of usable length for these toys, and a maximum girth of four inches. I don’t think these measurements are unmanageable for most people with some penetration or sex toy experience, but do keep in mind that this toy is rather firm which makes it feel a touch larger than it actually is.

The Magnetize is powered by Ann Summers exclusive Climax Technology which is said to send deep, low-frequency waves of vibration through the entire body. I think that this technology works very well on the internal arm. I could feel those deep, rumbly vibrations throughout the entire shaft (although they were most prevalent at the bottom) and these sent my nether regions into a blitz attack of sensations. I unfortunately can’t vouch for this technology being successful in the clitoral arm though. It seems to be the case with a high majority of dual stimulators that one arm (usually the external) is less intense in power than the other and offers simple buzzy vibrations. This can be frustrating for lots of people (me included) who need more power externally than internally and aren’t fond of higher frequency settings.

This rabbit features targeted magnets inside and these are designed to increase blood flow and sensitivity for better orgasms. There is a magnet located in the base of the shaft and another located inside the clitoral arm. I can’t say that I noticed anything immediately obvious that made this stand out from other rabbits but over time I’ve concluded that there is some subtle happenings going down beneath the silicone surface. I do now think that these magnets have increased my sensitivity levels and made me more susceptible to the strength of the vibrations on offer.

Fit is one of the hardest things to get right with this category of sex toy. We all have different anatomies so not every rabbit will work with every vulva which is why I generally prefer to use two separate toys rather than one stand-alone product. The Rampant Rabbits have done me well thus far and I’d say that the fit of the Magnetize is very similar to that of The Curved One. It has a short clitoral arm which works best for me as someone who has a clitoris rather close to their entrance. The ears sit directly against my clitoris, allowing me to make the most of the vibrations. A touch of extra girth on the internal arm would have been appreciated, but what it lacks in width, it makes up for in firmness.

With gentle ridged texture against the slightly bulbous head and a smooth, shallow curve that leads to the shaft, the Magnetize Rampant Rabbit practically screamed g-spot stimulation. It has a desirable amount of firmness which the Moregasm Contour sadly lacked and I can easily achieve a suitable amount of pressure against that spot in the process of trying to reach a climax. I found twisting to be more effective than thrusting with this particular toy as the texture provided extra stimulation by targeting the vaginal walls. This is something not many rabbits can achieve, unless they’re particularly girthy of course.

Now, I’m not going to say that I’m completely sold on rabbits as I know I’ve been pretty lucky with the few I’ve been able to review from this Ann Summers line so far and not everyone will share my experiences, but I will say that this rabbit stands out to me. It has very interesting technology in the form of magnets and this is something I’ve never experienced before. I think I’d have to try another Magnetize toy to be certain on whether it’s the magnets doing their job right or whether the internal arm on this toy is just spectacular at its job, but as it stands, I’m pretty enchanted by it.

Overall, I was surprised, impressed and slightly confused by the Magnetize. It took me through a range of emotions and feelings but it has come out on top. I am wowed by the amount of potential settings that this product offers and I can’t wait to explore them more over the coming months. It has a lot of other cool features too including the fact that it’s body-safe, textured, waterproof, quiet, rechargeable and unique. If Ann Summers Climax Technology had been as prevalent in the external arm as it is in the internal then I think I’d have rated this at a hardly ever given top score of ten. For now though, I can only give it a solid eight.

Review: We-Vibe Rave

We-Vibe RaveWe-Vibe are one of my favourite companies of all time. They are well-known for creating c-shaped vibrators that are designed to be used during penetrative sex and small, clitoral vibrators with powerhouse strength. Last year, they began expanding into the world of penetrative vibrators for those of us with a vulva. I became rather excited at these prospects and knew I had to get my hands on them both. I was most looking forward to trying the Rave, their first g-spot vibrator, and when I finally did, I was not disappointed.

The Rave was presented in similar fashion to the Tango and the Touch inside a purple and white cardboard storage box. It shows a glossy product photo on the front along with the We-Vibe branding a list of key features on the back. Alongside the Rave I found the USB charging cable, a full set of instructions and a satin storage pouch to keep everything in. It seems that We-Vibe have ditched the magnetic charging system this time around as there’s a port above the control panel to plug the jack into instead. I’m really grateful for this as the constant disconnecting of the previous chargers frustrated me to high heavens. A full charge takes around ninety minutes and this gives approximately a hundred and twenty minutes of use.

Material wise, I’m pleased to report that the Rave is made from the same luxurious, premium silicone as the Touch. It’s odourless, hypoallergenic, non-toxic and free from latex and phthalates. It’s seamless and feels delightful to the touch. It’s smooth with minimal drag to it but I would recommend using a coating of water-based lubricant anyway. We-Vibe have said that their products are safe to use with Pjur’s silicone lubricants, so you can do that if you prefer, but I would advise a patch test first just to be sure. The silicone attracts a fair amount of lint and dust as one may expect, but as this toy is only splash proof and not submersible, I’d suggest wiping with antibacterial toy wipes rather than risking a rinse.

We-Vibe RaveYou press the central button to turn on, scroll through the different vibrating patterns and turn off. The up and down arrows increase or decrease the vibration intensity. There are ten vibration settings, one of which is a constant speed and the rest are patterns. I’m typically not a huge fan of patterned vibrations, but I do like We-Vibe’s Pulse, Cha-Cha and Ramp.

It has a modest insertable length and circumference. It’s 7.5 inches overall, with four inches being insertable. It’s long enough to hit the right places, but short enough that it avoids hitting the cervix. I feel that it’s really comfortable to use internally or externally for me personally, but I can’t see most people who’ve experienced some sort of penetration before having issues with using it as a g-spot vibrator. It has a circumference of 4.4 inches, which is pretty slimline, particularly for a g-spot toy, so again it’s great for beginners. I personally would have preferred it to be around five inches as I feel this is the best fit for this type of stimulation for me, but I can make use of what it has now and still achieve orgasms.

We-Vibe Rave

It has a gorgeous matte shaft that’s slightly twisted and asymmetrical at the top, which curves gently into a flattened head that provides firm, accurate g-spot stimulation. The design works perfectly when I twist or rock the Rave back and forth, but it doesn’t feel as good for me when I thrust with it. I believe this is because the head isn’t quite broad enough for me so it slips out of position if I manoeuvre it too vigorously or quickly. I really don’t need a whole lot of movement for this to smash my g-spot straight to a climax.

I also tried it out for clitoral stimulation and I was not disappointed. It holds the same level of intensity and offers the divine rumbles that I love on their previous vibrators and although this wasn’t designed with external stimulation in mind, I found that it worked well. I thought that it might be like the Touch in the sense that the silicone dampened the vibrations slightly, but I didn’t really notice much of that with the Rave. It is firmer than the Touch as the silicone doesn’t have any squish to it, but this means I can get my desired amount of pressure easily. I do prefer to use it for internal purposes, but I am happy to use it externally on occasion as it feels just as good.

We-Vibe Rave

As far as the We-Vibe App goes, I have not used it with the Rave that much. I have experimented with it allowing my long-distance partner to be in control and I can’t say that I didn’t have a great time, but I prefer to control it manually. I feel that it’s more convenient for me and also more of a preference than a fault with the App itself. I love that you can create custom vibrations and I can see that being a feature that will really appeal to some, but I’m happy with the ones it already has and don’t particularly need to play around with others.

Noise wise, I think the Rave is on the quieter side of things. I think the silicone body dulls out some of the sound that the vibrations make and has the same noise level as the Touch as a result. I think it’s perfect for middle-of-the-night masturbation sessions as long as the bedroom door is closed.

Review: Womanizer Pro 40

Womanizer Pro 40A few weeks ago, Orion sent me the two new Womanizer models to review. I was really excited about trying the Pro 40 in particular as its everything I’ve been wanting from this brand. It seemed to solve a few of my past issues with previous models straight away and it also comes in at a much more respectable price tag than the past models. Does it hit as many buttons as the Satisfyer Pro 2 or were my initial impressions wrong? Read on to find out!

I rather liked the presentation of the Pro 40 packaging. Just a clean white box with a few glossy pictures of the product and the Womanizer branding. It’s classic and understated, but nice enough to give as a gift I think. Inside the box, the Pro 40 was found amongst the charging cable, adapter, user manual and a spare silicone head, which I believe was the larger size. Unlike the previous two Womanizer models, this one does not come with any storage. I understand wanting to keep costs down, but a small storage pouch would have been appreciated.

It needed a full charge as it arrived with none and this takes roughly 120 minutes. This gives around 240 minutes of play time (depending on the setting used), which I think is a wonderful ratio. I’ve only needed to recharge it a handful of times despite using it every other day since it arrived. It’s charged by placing the jack into the port on the toy and the USB into a charging station. The head will light up as the charge is taking place and it also flashes red when its in need of some fresh juice. I’ve had no issues with the charging process but please note that the product gets quite warm whilst doing so, so it’s best to keep on hard surfaces.

Am I in love with this sleek, updated take on the W100? Absolutely! The Pro 40 has gone back to the roots of the original Womanizer creation in terms of shape and I’m a big fan of that. I mentioned in my review of the W100 that I loved the long handle/slim body and this hasn’t changed. It’s much easier to use and control than the W500 in my opinion and I also find it more comfortable, especially for long-term use. I quite like the button placement on this model but for me it would feel more natural to have the plus and minus buttons the other way around on the control panel. I keep finding myself turning it down instead of up at the moment, which is momentarily frustrating.

Womanizer Pro 40The design of this is completely unlike the original though. Gone are the days of leopard print, bright crocodile print and awful gemstone buttons. The Pro 40 comes in two colour options – white and silver, which I chose, and Magenta and white. Neither are as feminine as previous models which I think is a bonus as it feels more inviting to people who have a clitoris but don’t identify as female. It’s also more inviting to those who were put off by the previous designs.

Remember in previous reviews of the Womanizer models where I complained that they weren’t waterproof? I can’t do that in this review. Feedback seems to have been taken on board and the Pro 40 is waterproof as a result. This makes the cleaning process so much easier. I like to gently rinse the entire unit and then dry it with a cloth before removing the head and washing that more intensively. I generally have to use a q-tip with toy cleaner to get any lube or lint residue from the head following each use.

As I mentioned before, I am fond of the control panel. It has a three-button interface, a power button then a plus and minus. The power obviously turns the toy on and off whilst the other two control the intensity and scroll through the various settings. I like the fact that there’s up and down arrows as I like to be able to go back to a previous setting if I accidentally pass the one I want or opt for too much intensity too soon. There are eight settings to explore on this clitoral stimulator and I can become invested in the sensations from setting four and above.

Womanizer Pro 40When I lay back with the Womanizer Pro 40, I can lose myself in orgasmic bliss after a minute or two on full power. It’s a quick, reliable orgasm tool and I’d say that it’s similar to a Doxy in that it just sort of rips an orgasm out of you. It’s not going to do that for everyone as the stimulation it offers is best suited to people who enjoy direct/pin-point clitoral contact.

If you like the broader stimulation of a wand and prefer it to a bullet vibrator, then you might find a toy such as this to be too intense, even on the lower settings. Equally, it might be too much if you have a highly sensitive clitoris. You’re probably better off with something broader. I personally like broad and direct stimulation, but direct is what gets me off the fastest, making the Womanizer perfect for me.

I would describe the Pro 40 as having the power of the W500 and all the best qualities of the W100. I’m glad it has eight levels of intensity as I didn’t find the six modes on the original to be enough for an intense orgasm. I am a power queen and although this is a pressure wave stimulator rather than a vibrator, I find the highest settings to penetrate below the surface of my clitoris as the highest settings on the Tango would. It feels different, but just as good. I haven’t been let down in the strength department and I’m quite pleased with the variety it has. It has some gentle suckle-like stimulation to start with if you’re not sure whether the technology will work for you or not.

On the topic of intensity, I think the choice of head can make all the difference. I personally prefer to use the regular heads as I’ve found these work best with my body and preferences. I think this makes the pressure feel rather precise. The larger heads take away some of the intensity in my experience, but I will use them on occasion if I don’t want to orgasm as quickly or I’m looking to achieve multiple climaxes. I feel that the regular heads tend to make me more sensitive after one orgasm, to the point where a second could be numbing and painful, but the larger heads don’t do this.

Womanizer Pro 40Before I turns this short review into a novel, I think noise is an important factor in a sex toy and is generally one of the first questions people ask me. I will admit that none of these “suction” type stimulators are quiet due to the mechanisms involved, but they aren’t sledgehammer loud. I do think the Pro 40 is louder than the previous models, only slightly, but I can tolerate this extra noise when I’m getting so many great things in exchange. If you need something quieter, than the W100 is probably the best Womanizer option for you.

In conclusion, I think this is the best Womanizer creation to date. I love the sleek aesthetics that this offers and whilst I’d remove a few of the visible seams, it’s pleasant to look at. It’s a huge improvement on previous models in terms of design and definitely a step in the best direction. I really like that the features I liked from both previous models have been morphed together to make one toy and then been made waterproof as a bonus. I am looking forward to seeing what this brand does next, but I’m hoping there will be some more models along these lines in the future that include storage.

Review: Tantus Uncut 2

Tantus Uncut 2Y’all know by now that I absolutely adore Tantus, to the point where I think of them every time I hear the word silicone. They are the first brand that I go to when I’m need of a new silicone toy and I’m very rarely disappointed. When I saw that they had introduced some uncut models last year, I was in awe. I had been looking for an accurate representation of an uncut penis for a while, but it seemed that none were available until Tantus decided to work their magic. I feel like their creations have started the process of filling a huge gap in the market and I couldn’t be happier about it.

The Uncut 2 is part of Tantus’s dual density range, being made with a firm core and a soft outer layer. It is made entirely from their own unique formula of ultra-premium silicone and is completely body-safe. It’s non-toxic, phthalate-free and hypoallergenic. It is bleachable, boilable and dishwasher-safe for complete piece of mind. I usually just spray toys with antibacterial cleaner and rinse for everyday cleaning, giving them a deeper wash once or twice a month, but Tantus actually recommend boiling or running through the Uncut through the dishwasher due to the textured nature of the toy. I’ve never had any problems during this process and actually find they come out looking and feeling better than ever.

It has a soft matte finish, similar to that on the Cush, but it has less resistance than I expected. I had anticipated a strong drag from the silicone due to the finish, veiny texture and foreskin but it’s actually rather minimal. I still needed a slick coating of water-based lubricant to be comfortable, but not as much as I thought I’d need. It was more flexible than I had anticipated too, not in the sense that it flops around all over the place, but with direction, the tip can bend to touch the base.

Tantus Uncut 2This is the smaller of the two Uncuts, with the first having extra length and a smudge more girth. I would categorize this toy in the medium range, which is great for those with some experience with penetration, but not quite big enough for those who like to be stretched or filled. It has just over five inches of girth at the widest point around the head and an overall length of around seven inches with just under six and half being insertable. This is right within my comfortable, avoiding cervix-hitting range, which is the main reason I opted for version two.

I’m used to having sex with an uncut male, so I wondered how this would feel in comparison and I wasn’t disappointed. It doesn’t feel quite like the real thing, but it’s the closest thing to it that I’ve discovered thus far. I find that the foreskin helps with insertion, making the process more enjoyable for me. It feels less intense than when I use something with a prominent glans such as the Godemiche Adam. It’s perfect for me on days where I want a leisurely wank and don’t want to spend time warming myself up with several other toys first.

I really enjoy the way that the Uncut feels as I manoeuvre it, whether I’m rocking back and forth, thrusting or twisting, but I just can’t get myself to orgasm with it. It’s quite straight so it doesn’t hit my g-spot without me getting the angle precise and even if it did hit the spot without help, it’s not firm enough for me. It’s soft around the head and my g-spot’s preference is hard, firm and lots of pressure. It’s very rare for me to orgasm vaginally without g/a-spot stimulation, so I have to incorporate a vibrator into the mix for a lovely blended climax.

It’s anal-safe and harness compatible, so can be used for solo play, partner play and pegging. We don’t engage in strap-on play so I haven’t any thoughts on how it works for that, but I have experimented with it in solo use. I personally find it much easier to orgasm from anal penetration than I do vaginal, particularly when a soft toy is involved, so this toy was ideal for this type of stimulation. A thrusting motion seems to work best for this type of play and I can orgasm it with it easily enough. I don’t need to add a vibrator into the mix to get off, but when I do, it intensifies things and that’s never a bad thing in my book.

Tantus Uncut 2Overall, I think the Uncut 2 would be great for people who are looking for a dildo that’s different from the rest. Its foreskin sets it apart from the thousands of cut cocks out there and I think it’s fabulous. It surprises to me to say that as I have never been a huge fan of realistic toys, to the point where I only own a handful, but I can safely say that I wouldn’t want to be without this one. It’s on par with my Vixen Mustang and is definitely one of the best insertable toys that I tried during the closing weeks of 2016.
