It’s a mouse, it’s a com device….no no, it’s the Better Than Chocolate vibrator! In my latest video review, I take on Nomi Tang’s clitoral stimulator/external vibrator, the Better Than Chocolate. It’s a cute toy, made to hug the curves of a variety of parts of the body (the vulva, around the penis shaft, etc), and comes in two colors; plum and navy, which is awesome for those who aren’t the biggest fan of pink (like me!). While I wish that it was made of silicone (which is a sterilizable material), at least is is made of elastomer, which happens to be a phthalate free and body-friendly material. This makes it safe and hypo-allergenic for bodies, and is also compatible with a variety of water-based lubricants. It can be used solo for masturbatory fun, or with a partner for some vibe-tastic interactions.

All in all, it isn’t better than chocolate. However, it’s a fun toy, with pretty light up action. If you’re looking for something similar but made of silicone and rechargable, I’d suggest the Lelo Siri.

A few years back, I took a tour of the Kink.com Armory in San Francisco. One room was where they stored all their fucking machines, including one titled Lick A Chick, which was silicone tongues on a chainsaw belt. Upon seeing it, I wished that they’d come up with an at home, more personal use version. Lucky for us, they have. It’s called the SQWEEL. It’s tongues on a wheel….the end.

It’s exactly what it sounds like — a bunch of silicone tongues on a wheel, that rotate in circle at various speeds. It’s pretty amazing, and as long as you add a little lube to reduce friction (update! YOU MUST ADD LUBE – this is a non-negotiable!(, I can totally see how this toy might become your new BFF. This is a body friendly product; the wheel is made of silicone (helllllo boiling) and the outer casing is a phthalate free ABS plastic. It’s actually pretty awesome; it comes apart for cleaning purposes (thank you! Brilliant design), and apparently, there are now other pink tongue wheels in different styles (bumpy, nubby, etc) that you can switch out for the original tongues on a wheel. I love options.

This may not be *the* best partner toy; it can be hard to have someone find the exact right angle to use on it, and for many people, if you have someone with a deliciously wet tongue in front of you, it might seem silly to pull out your fabulous tongues on a wheel (although let me never be the one to tell you how to use your sex toys!). On the other hand, this is a brilliant toy for masturbation (vulva or anal — the silicone is sterilizable!) and for those who LOVE oral sex and aren’t getting that tongue to clit (or tongue to anus) action (or maybe not as much as they want), this is a great stand in. Also fun to use on nipples — would love to hear of other places as well.

And now, tis time to decide if this is the newest addition to your household of awesome! If you decide you like the concept, but want different tongue action, there are multiple options for purchase!

Below is my video review of the Njoy Pure Wand, which I personally feel is the best non-vibrating g-spot toys (and a great anal toy) on the market…and now that I own the Njoy Eleven, I love this company even more.

The toys is made of stainless steel, so it is 100% body friendly (and easy to sterilize by boiling it, dish-washing it, or wiping it down with a 10% bleach solution), it’s great for temperature play (put it in a bowl of warm water or a bowl of ice water), and has helped more women to discover their G-spots than any other sex toy I know. It is amazing…plus it comes with an adorable box for storage.

Thanks to my former employers and crew for filming, editing, etc…and thanks to my breasts for looking amazing throughout this (I mean, seriously!).

So here we have a vibrator that is a little different than your average vibe. Why? Because it’s coooooold. It’s a vibrator that uses/is made of ice. Not even kidding — this is the Ice Vibe by Touche. It’s a silicone toy with a little traditional bullet vibrator, but the actual part that winds up vibrating against your clit, or nipples, or testicles, or penis, or wherever you decide to put it, is made of ice. Perfect toy to cool down on a hot summer day. Want to see it and hear my thoughts about it? Check out my video review.

Thanks to Fascinations for the toy, as well as our Rockstar of Awesome Matt Helm who made the video. It’s actually quite an old review, but it got lost and we just found it, and figured that since it’s summer, what better time to share the Ice Vibe with you, right?

This toy is new and different and shiny, because it stands out a bit from the more “traditional” two person dildo (think Fun Factory Share or the Tantus Feeldoe). Why? It’s got these fancy schmancy adjustable angles for the two different piece, using a little silicone piece to change things up, depending on whether you like a more acute or more obtuse angle.

Like the majority of the other toys in this pretty new and pretty slim category, it’s 100% medical grade silicone. What does this mean? General cleaning can be done with soap and water, or if you want to share it (or use it anally, then vaginally), you can then sterilize it by dishwashing it (top shelf, no soap), boiling it 3-5 minutes or wiping it down with a 10% bleach solution. Please do keep in mind that there are crevices here, making it harder to clean. Water-based lube only!

Overall, I was pretty impressed with the Mantric Sysil Double-Dildo toy, and so we’ve produced a little video review for you to get a little more info on it, check it out visually, and see if it’s the right toy for you.

Thanks again to  Fascinations and the videographer Matt for the video review awesomeness, and for the toy.

Thanks to Matt of Fascinations for the fabulous taping of this review, and of course, to Fun Factory for the Layaspot itself.

The Layaspot is a pretty awesome and very versatile vibrator. I really like the size and shape of it, and unlike some vibrators, it’s fairly easy to hold in your hand (great if you have nerve problems, arthritis, etc).  It’s made of Elastomer, which is an awesome, phthalate free, body healthy material. I do wish it could be silicone, because then it would be sterilizable…but phthalate free is a really good start.

One of the really nice things about the Layaspot is that it can be used on lips, nipples, labia, the mons, and even under a guy’s testicles, in addition to the more traditional use of it for clitoral stimulation.  Also, the size is great in that it can be used between two bodies during intercourse, or you can let it rest up against you while your performing oral sex or fingering a partner, making this vibe great for both individual use as well as with someone else.

It doesn’t pack as much vibration as some other vibes, so if you’re a lover of the Hitachi Magic Wand, this is probably not the toy for you. However, if you’re new to vibrators, or just want a moderate amount of stimulation, this might be perfect for you!

In case you’re interested, here is another one of my video reviews.

This particular video review is of the Ina by Lelo. It’s one of the first rechargable, medical grade silicone, rabbit style/dual stimulations vibrator available on the market, and I’m blown over by the beautiful design.

I’m not the biggest fan of dual stimulation toys, but my partner is, and gives it a mega thumbs up.  In fact, my partners puts it in the top three vibes that we own…and we own a lot.

It’s pretty (albeit a bit like a cactus), well designed, holds a charge for quite some time, and is definitely worth getting your paws on this Ina.

Make sure you pick up some good water based lube to go with it — it’ll significantly improve your experience with it.

Watch the video review for more of my thoughts!

Thanks again to Matt for all his help. Hope you enjoyed the video!
