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: Rainbow Pop! 6 Inch Silicone Dildo

Rainbow Pop! Silicone Dildo 6 InchAs soon as I saw this dildo, I knew I had to get it. I think it was online for maybe two hours before I gave in and ordered it, because you know, I didn’t want to be too keen. I love toys that aren’t just the typical, over-used pinks and purples, so what could be better suited to me than a rainbow dildo? The answer is nothing. Unless its made by Doxy, We-Vibe or Tantus. Or it has suction. Or its glass. Ok, I have a lot of toys that are suited to me and I’m obsessed with them all, but I hold a special place in my heart for colourful dildos.

The Rainbow Pop! arrived quickly and discreetly in a white cardboard box with a cut-out viewing window in the front. One side of the box shows off a picture of the toy whilst the other shows off the pride colours and the back lists some multilingual, basic care information. Inside the box, the dildo rested within a plastic tray. There’s nothing else included in the box, which is slightly disappointing as I had hoped for a storage bag considering the price.

It is made from a high-quality silicone, that has a firm core and a very minor amount of squish in the tip. This is important as it makes insertion easier. The material feels smooth and luxurious to the touch, but still has some drag, as you’d expect. A good quality water-based lubricant like Sliquid H20 will remove this and make use more comfortable. It attracts a crazy amount of lint so rinsing before each use is essential, even if it has been stored away. A thorough rinse and a spray of toy cleaner or soap after each use will keep it as fresh and clean as possible between uses.

As the core of the Rainbow Pop! is quite firm, I was not expecting it to be very flexible, so I was surprised when I experimented with it and managed to manipulate the tip into touching the base. It doesn’t flop around like a cheap, porous, jelly dildo would, but it does give you the opportunity to alter the angle of the toy should you need to.

Now, I have owned multiple suction cup dildos over the past year, with most disappointing me with their un-desirable amount of stick and willingness to cooperate. I think only a quarter of the suction cup dildos that I own are actually able to be used as such, but this dildo has happily joined that small percentage. Rainbow Pop!’s suction cup feels incredibly sturdy and reliable, with no chance of it flinging off the shower tiles mid-ride. It has to be removed from the surface by placing two fingers under the cup and it can’t just be pulled off the surface by the tip like some weaker toys can.

In use, I found this dildo to be a fantastic size. It’s slightly smaller than my other half, so it’s not intimidating to him and honestly, even if it was bigger, I doubt he’d be intimidated by something so colourful. I find this toy extremely useful to use to warm-up with before engaging in sex with him. It has an overall length of eight inches, but only six are insertable as the rest is just the balls and suction cup. Its girth is  a maximum of five inches around the widest part, which is filling without being overwhelmingly so. It doesn’t create too much of a stretching sensation which is good as I can often find this painful, rather than pleasurable.

I am typically speaking not a huge fan of realistic toys, but this one has very minimal detailing. It does have a realistic head and coronal ridge, but the very faint vein detailing on the shaft is barely noticeable and it cannot be felt during use or insertion. I thought from first glance and appearances that the coronal ridge might catch on my pubic bone upon insertion due to how well it’s defined, but so far, I have not had any such problems.

Rainbow Pop! 6 Inch Silicone DildoThe Rainbow Pop! feels great to thrust with, ride on or simply clench around to enjoy the girth. I can insert the full length of the shaft as it’s not quite long enough to hit my cervix, so use is comfortable and enjoyable. I seem to use this dildo more with my partner than I do alone, whether it’s him using it on me or dabbling in double penetration. I think this is because he is able to be more vigorous with it than I am and he seems to be able to hit the places that I can’t from his angle. If I’m using this dildo alone then I need to also be using a clitoral vibrator in order to orgasm, but if he’s in control then I can orgasm on most occasions.

Overall, I think the Rainbow Pop! is absolutely worth its retail price of £44.99. It’s extremely difficult to find high-quality silicone toys that are on the larger side, so they’re always going to be a little more expensive, but in my opinion, they’re so worth it. It’s going to last so much longer than something cheap and porous. It has been made wonderfully and I think it’s so aesthetically pleasing that I would honestly leave it out for decoration if I didn’t still live with family. The Rainbow Pop! is not just a toy for people in the LGBTQ community who are celebrating pride, it’s for its supporters too.

Review: Split Peaches Unicorn Horn Small

When I was a kid, I used to spend the weekends in bed, flicking through the Argos catalogue and ticking everything I wanted, now I do the same with the Split Peaches website. It all started when I first set sights on the Unicorn Horn, a unique toy that’s literally shaped like a Unicorn’s horn. This mesmerizing dildo is available in three different sizes, small, medium and large and comes in rainbow and white varieties. I chose the small rainbow horn, but I think I’ll be getting a medium at some point, possibly with their new awesome glowgasm feature.

Split Peaches Unicorn Horn and RivetorI absolutely love what Split Peaches do and they are a company I support whole heartedly. I think their customer service is absolutely fantastic and I’ve had nothing but pleasurable experiences when chatting to them via social media. I was kept updated from the second my order was placed and I knew when it was being moulded and I even got sent a photo of both toys I was receiving prior to them being packed. How cool is that?

I was expecting to have to wait a while as Split Peaches products are made in the US and I’m in the UK, but my package was with me within a week of placing the order and was discreet as promised. I found both of my toys wrapped inside Split Peaches tissue paper, which was a nice touch, and an envelope which contained a signed note from Andy (the owner), stickers and some temporary tattoos. Inside the tissue paper, the Unicorn Horn was inside a plastic tube (similar to Vixen packaging) with the brand name on one side.

I couldn’t wait to tear open the tube and have a feel of this majestic toy. It is made from a super high-quality silicone, which is hypoallergenic, non-toxic and free from phthalates. It’s easy to clean as all that’s necessary is a spray of toy cleaner and a rinse before and after each use. I had heard great things about the feel of Split Peaches silicone and those things that I heard were all true. I underestimated how soft and luxurious it would feel, but I was pleased to discover that it was of a wonderful standard, even though it did have some drag to it. I haven’t come across many silicone toys that don’t have drag, so this was not a downside, simply an excuse to get the Sliquid out!

Split Peaches Small Unicorn Horn 1I didn’t apply a huge amount of lubricant to this toy because I thought the measurements were quite manageable. It has six inches of length and 1.5″ of girth at the widest point, which is around the base. These measurements are well within my comfort range and I now see that I probably could have managed the medium, which is why I’m planning on getting one of those soon. I had also noted earlier that the Unicorn Horn has some squish and flexibility to it, which would help with insertion and comfort. It’s not so flexible that it will move without some encouragement, but the tip will touch the base if you want it to, which means it can be adjusted as much as you wish in any direction.

I was curious about how I’d manage to orgasm from this toy because it isn’t curved to specifically target the g-spot and it isn’t quite long enough or firm enough to hit my a-spot. I think the medium and large might work well for a-spot play, but I had to try something else with this small size. I decided that I’d try a simple in and out internal massage to see if the gentle, swirly texture would stimulate and warm-up my vaginal walls. I thought this would be the most effective method and I was pleased to discover the full length and girth was comfortable and the spiral texture, as minimal as it is, was lovely during warm up. It did massage the vaginal walls as I’d hoped, but it wasn’t overwhelming and couldn’t bring me to orgasm. It is great to use before The Rivetor though as that has a hell of lot going on.

I initially thought that g-spot stimulation was out of the question/not going to happen with the Unicorn Horn due to the straight shape and small width, but I was proved wrong when I accidentally pressed upon the g-spot whilst adjusting the toy. I wasn’t expecting it to be stimulated, but I decided to try some shallow thrusting just in case and found that it was actually pretty successful, as long as I angled the toy in a certain position and moved quite quickly. The toy isn’t quite firm enough to bring me to this kind of orgasm, but it still felt great nonetheless.

Split Peaches Small Unicorn Horn 2

I did find one way to orgasm with the Unicorn Horn and that was anally. It has a flared base so is completely safe for anal play and can even be used in a harness if that’s what you’re interested in. I don’t peg my partner so I haven’t tried this out, but it is compatible according to their site. I think the gradual increase of width in this toy makes this a fabulous contender for anal play, especially for a novice. I generally let my other half do the work with this toy and thrust it in and out at a medium pace, which doesn’t take long to leave me breathless.

Overall, I am so appreciative of toy makers who put safety first and use these fantastic quality materials, especially when they make them available in these amazing colour options and designs. Split Peaches are a company I support 100% and I’d highly recommend their small Unicorn Horn to those who are new to penetration (anal or vaginal), don’t like much girth or simply just want a unique, colourful toy in their collection. This size is not quite long/wide enough to be the cause of my vaginal orgasms, hence why I’m sizing up, but I still find it incredibly satisfying in use and it’s a dream to use anally. It has become one of my go-to toys for anal play and I can’t wait to get another to push my limits!
