Review: I-Vibe Rabbit

I-Vibe Rabbit The Original Vibrator

The I-Vibe Rabbit is a rabbit vibrator sex toy manufactured by adult company Doc Johnson. Doc Johnson is located in California originally created back in 1976 which probably is one of the oldest running sex toy companies I have heard of. The I-Vibe Rabbit is a famous sex toy which gained notoriety when it was featured in the TV seriese “Sex And The City”. The Sex and the City girls referred to it as “The Rabbit” which is obviously a joke given it’s name. The I-Vibe Rabbit is also featured  in the Showtime series “House Of Lies”. The I-Vibe Rabbit has always been one of those vibrators that have maintained its popularity due to its multiple functionality whilst it reaches all the important pleasurable spots. I have found that once someone get’s hookied on the I-Vibe Rabbit regardless of how many years they have used it for, they always re-purchase it.

So given that it is one of the first sex toys to be flaunted publicly it has amassed a following of fans (much like the 50 Shades of Grey “cult”) and that is a great thing! Making it easy to talk about sex and owning toys doesn’t seem as taboo as it once did, chances are we know somebody who uses one of these Rabbits so why not do a review on it, right?  On the inside shaft as you can see are some round pearls which when powered up rotate giving an intense pleasant feeling as it oscillates inside of you. For woman who are new to masturbation, I recommend before using the pearl feature of the sex toy that you have done a lot of foreplay to loosen your body and naturally lubricate for the experience. Or you can substitute it for a water based lubricant. One of our favourite all rounder lubricants is SuperSlyde.

The I-Vibe Rabbit also has 3 unique pleasure functions, 8 different speeds that you can set the pearls to and also  the rabbit clitoral stimulation has 8 speed stimulation all the while you can choose how you want to use it, you can set either the shaft on and clitoral stimulation off and vice versa. The tip of the penis head pivots in rhythmic circular motions. It is also designed to look very similar to a realistic penis. The I-Vibe Rabbit comes with a clitoris tickler that is shaped like bunny ears. The clitoral stimulator will lightly flicker on the clitoris for gently or high speed stimulation. The clitoral stimulation can get quite intense, which is a lot of fun to experiment with.   It’s completely Water-proof and it’s completely body friendly!  Unlike other vibrators it’s very soft textured  and a lot of woman and couples prefer this because hard plastic can cause discomfort. Due to just how popular this sex toy type is, Doc Johnson have made a whole range of I-Vibe rabbits so every colour selection or body type is taken care of. The insertable length Is 12cm and girth ranging from 11cm to 12.5cm.  The entire length of the vibrator is 26.5cm.  Don’t be put off by the size even if you are a novice because this is a fantastic starting point.

All that said it is the original rabbit, there have been many many many different companies who have tried to match or one up Doc Johnson but as a company that has been around since 1976 and support some of the biggest stars in the industry such as Belladonna, Jenna Jameson it is hard to compete with it.

Doc Johnson I-Vibe Rabbit The Original Advantages:

  • Has thousands upon thousands of customers who swear by it.
  • Waterproof (How could that not be a plus? You never know where you’re going to end up when you’re having fun!)
  • IC Chip Built in so you can control exactly how you use it.
  • Great for beginners to advanced!

Doc Johnson I-Vibe Rabbit The Original Disadvantages:

  • Price can be issue for some but as I mentioned before a lot of companies have their own version, my recommendation would be an Odeco Rabbit which is just as great in my opinion!
  • If you’re very tight the beads might not rotate once they’ve been compressed too much.

You can also buy an I-Vibe Rabbit with a suction cup. The suction cup version is not exactly the same as the original. Obviously the suction cup part is different, but some of its other features differ as well. The swirling shaft, rotating beads and rabbit eared clit tickler remain though, and this makes me very happy. The suction cup feature is pretty self explanatory – it enables hands-free play. Attach it to a smooth surface and bounce and grind the night away (or at least, until you need to run out for more batteries haha). Some users have reported however that the suction isn’t that strong. But the wider base also means it is suitable to use in a strap-on harness, which really takes the toy up a notch in versatility and I feel a little sunbeam of joy for my strap-on using sisters and brothers that they can use such an awesome toy, and I will definitely be bringing it up as an option to customers in the future.

Size-wise it is comparable to the Mini Ivibe Rabbit rather than the larger original. Which is not that mini, it’s definitely a satisfying size for most especially when you factor in the swirling shaft. Now this baby also comes with a cord attached remote controller, which I have mixed feelings about. On the one hand, it obviously makes it much easier to change the settings while you’re using it. On the other hand, I hate cord-attached controllers as compared to non-attached remotes and also the settings are not as varied as on the original rabbit. The wider base also makes it suitable for a bit of butt play if you’re feeling adventurous or are already into anal play and looking for something different. I’m guessing that swirling shaft would be pretty crazy/amazing for prostate or A spot stimulation!

Review: Vibratex Mini Magic Massager

Vibratex Body Wand
Body wands are one of the most preferred items among adult toys because of their strong vibrations, versatility and easy to use. Although we got used to seeing body wands in big sizes, I am going to tell you about the Vibratex Mini Magic Massager and how handy it is. The Vibratex Mini Magic Massager comes in a transparent package which includes the wand, charger, storage pouch and user manual. The total length of the wand is 6.25 inches and the erogenous zones and place different amounts of pressure. Body wands can be used as an all over body massager and clitoris massager. If you have a clitoris that enjoys higher powered vibrations body wands are one of the ultimate choices to pick.
Vibratex Mini Magic Massager has 6 different vibration modes which include:
  1. Consistent low
  2. Consistent medium
  3. Consistent high
  4. One low short pulses followed by one high long pulse
  5. Five pulses starting at low going to high and then restarting the cycle
  6. A rumbly low pulse that escalates to a medium pulse, stopped by two quick medium pulses then it escalates again

You can control the modes by a single button placed on the shaft of the wand. It is not the easiest control button (you need to complete the cycle to go back to the beginning) but it prevents the toy from turning on/off accidentally and you can hold the button down for 3 seconds when you want to turn it off without completing the cycle.

Vibratex Mini Magic Massager vibrations are pretty powerful and in my opinion will be strong enough to satisfy most users. Moreover, the head is really flexible so feel free to bend it to maximise your pleasure in a way that you’d like to. I admit that the toy is a bit noisy but nobody hears nothing behind the closed doors. It has ridges on the head as well, if you think that the vibrations are not that strong for you, the ridges will help you during play.
Vibratex Mini Magic Massager is appropriate both solo and couple plays and can be used to stimulate clitoris, G-spot and nipples. It is available in three colours as black, blue and pink in the market. The wand is easy to clean with mild soap and warm water. Pay more attention while cleaning to make sure no dirt gets stuck in between two ridges. Unfortunately, the Mini Magic Massager is not waterproof so you are not going to have a chance to use it under water but don’t worry, it will make you wet even in dry use.
The best advantage of the Vibratex Mini Magic Massager is its charge unit. It has a USB charging port but also has 7 of other ports such as Iphone, Blackberry, most cell phone chargers they fit. It is written on the package that the toy should be charged overnight before the first use, After that, each charge takes 1 hour and fully charged wand gives you 1-1.5 hour of play.
You can use the Vibratex Mini Magic Massager externally on your clitoris whilst you use a G-Spot or straight vibrator for a duel orgasm experience. Erogenous zones that you can massager include the nipples, testicles and on the frenulum. Body Wands are also powerful enough to use through your clothes. When you use it on top of your jeans, through your underwear or through the bed sheets, the cloth will help to soothe the vibration throughout your vagina creating a more sensual experience leaving you wanting more. It is a good way to soother the vibrations, if you find the body wand getting to much.
All in all, if you are a beginner or an intermediate user of toys and into the wands (not the ones being too strong) the Vibratex Mini Magic Massager rechargeable, sleek, mini massager will suit you well! The Vibratex Mini Magic Massager is incredibly affordable at online $45 within the Adult Smart online sex shop. If you enjoy high powered clitoris massager’s Adult Smart and Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centre also recommend the bullet We-Vibe Tango. If you would like to have a look at another high powered, palm sized body wand, we also really love the Palm Power Rechargable.

Medical Play Fetishism

Baci Nurse Costume

The definition of a sexual fetish is the need for an object, body part or material to achieve an elevated state of sexual arousal. Realistically anything can be turned into a fetish; it just depends on a person’s desires and preferences. I’ll be going over one in particular and a few instruments used to achieve heightened sexual arousal, the Medical Play Fetishism.

Medical Play Fetishism is that compulsive desire to explore one another in various ways. Most people grow up feeling scared or ashamed to explore their fetish, it’s not until we grow older and find out that they are not alone and there are hundreds and thousands of others that share a similar interest or fetish. With the Medical Play Fetishism there various medical instruments designed for a certain use then over time eventually became sexualised or used to stimulate and create a heightened sexual experience. These tools range from forceps, gags to percussion hammers and sounding rods. Now, I could spend all day going over every single Medical Play Fetishism but instead I choose 3 sex toys that I found most interesting and curious to investigate.

The first Medical Play Fetishism sex toy out of the trio that I’m going to talk about is the wartenberg wheel. A pinwheel looking device, the wartenberg wheel is a very popular bdsm toy that’s original purpose was to test nerve reactions as it systematically rolled up the skin but it didn’t take long for someone to use this instrument for sexual arousal and stimulation. Looks scary I know but it does what it does best and that create sensation that most people haven’t ever felt before. Depending on how you use the wartenberg wheel depends on the experience and sensation you will have. When used quickly, it can create a ticket sensation and when used slow and hard it can create a more knife-like sensation. Use a blindfold, heat up the toy with warm water or cool down in the freezer, there are many different simple ways you can create new and unique experiences with just this toy and if you combo it with a “violet wand body contact electrode” for entirely new experience all together.

Next on our list is urethral sounds, when I first knew what these were for I was like “hell no, stuff that ” but that was my own naïvety and with some research I found that they have many uses for both medical and sexual purposes. Urethral sounds or sounding rods are used  to go up the male or female urethra, medically they are for measuring and or gradually enlarging the urethra. In BDSM medical scene they can be a source of exceptional sensual stimulation. The rods are curved due to urethra naturally have a slight curve as well. Urethral play is defiantly not something you should engage in without experience or if you don’t understand all the necessary precautions otherwise, your fun can result in infection, injury, or other traumatic problems…… Besides that the pleasure that can be achieved by these toys is incomparable and should not be overlooked.

Last but not least on our list is another enormously popular Medical Play Fetishism device for both males and females in the medical BDSM scene is the speculum. The actual medical application is examination of the rectum or the vagina. Usually, it is made of steel in a duckbill shape with two “jaws” which open with a screw-type mechanism, thus, stretching the opening to give a clear view down the center into the vagina or rectum. There are also plastic disposable variations of speculum. Objects such as swabs can be inserted through the opening into the orifice. It also allows for pouring cool or warm water into the opening, just don’t use ice or water that isn’t too hot.

Using instruments for Medical Play Fetishism comes with its own set of precautions and ways to ensure safe medical play, knowing how to look after and clean your tools will keep them in safe and playable condition. The first recommendation would be to go through an autoclave cycle, this is a medical device designed to sterilise medical/dental/tattoo/piercing equipment. Another alternative would to boil the instruments for a minimum of 15 minutes but for just a everyday clean a simple soapy water solution is also acceptable. When using medical toys you also need to use the right lube, surgilube which is a sterile lube used for surgical equipment is my best recommendation.

 

Mutual Masturbation

Woman Piggy Back Man

By the time you realise things are starting to go dull in your sex life it can start to spiral downhill really fast. You tend to freak out and think that you’re doing something wrong, or worse, your partner is doing something wrong and could possibly be starting to lose interest. Though, one of the easiest things to incorporate into your bedroom antics is mutual masturbation, and it’s funnily enough the thing I find couples don’t tend to think of when trying to change things up in the bedroom. We’ve all had fantasies about it. Thinking about our partner whilst we’re masturbating and possibly even envisioning them masturbating in front of you whilst you are…. so why not actually do it?

Mutual Masturbation is a sexual activity that does not include sexual penetration and can also be referred to as outercourse. Outercourse means different things to different people but usually excludes all penetration including vaginal, anal and oral. Outercourse includes things like frottage, mutual masturbation, fingering (oneself) and kissing. Not only is mutual masturbation or outercourse extremely hot, it’s also a preferred sexual act for a lot of people for a number of different reasons. Hetero couples may choose to engage in outercourse for reasons such as preserving virginity, an alternative to PIV sex or even as a form of birth control. Mutual masturbation may be done in situations where the participants do not feel ready, physically able, socially at liberty, or willing to engage in any penetrative sex act, or a particular penetrative sex act, but still wish to engage in a mutual sexual activity to ultimately achieve orgasm. Queer couples may also partake in outercourse also for preserving virginity, with some gay males using it as a substitute for anal  sex. Folks with STI’s/STD’s may also choose to exclusively partake in outercourse or mutual masturbation so as to completely reduce the risk of exchanging bodily fluids.

Mutual Masturbation sometimes get’s overlooked, its such a simple technique which can help to enhance couple’s sexual skill sets. Mutual Masturbation can help couple’s get to understand their partner’s bodies, their turn on’s and get to know all the correct buttons that need to be pressed. It allows your partner to look and explore your body, after all they are attracted to you so I couldn’t think of anything more enticing to them to actually have the power to play with the part’s that they love the most. They can use Mutual Masturbation as away to visually get turned on and see how your body reacts to their touch.

Mutual Masturbation was even shown in artwork dating all the way back to the 1840’s, famously by an artist called Johann Nepomunk Geiger (an Austrian Artist) who was a Court Painter by trade, erotic oil painter by night. His picture, shown above, depicts a heterosexual couple who are stimulating one another at the same time – this still falls under the category of mutual masturbation and outercourse.

In 2016, however, almost every adult couple has their sex toys – whether gay, straight, queer, trans or somewhere inbetween. Couples will often use a vibrator or any other form of sex toy on the other before penetrative sex, but not many think to use their toys on each other simultaneously while the other watches. This one simple act, fantasy, desire, whatever you want to call it, could be the key to charging up your sex life.

Not only is Mutual Masturbation super sexy, it’s also a great way to find out what your partner enjoys. We all know what gets us off, where our sweet spots are and exactly where to place your WeVibe Tango to get you going – so sometimes the simple act of your partner watching you can act as not only a MASSIVE turn on, but a disguised tutorial! Mutual masturbation can form a connection that will take your sex life to new heights and I can guarantee you will feel closer than ever before.
So grab your Tango and your Lelo Mona 2, or stay traditional and use your hands to show your partner exactly how you like it.

Why Sex Can Be Painful

Facial Expression Upset

Whilst it’s not something we tend to regularly discuss, experiencing pain during sex is something everyone has felt at some point. According to my research, studies show that 3/4 of women have previously experienced ‘painful’ or ‘stinging sensations’ during sex, yet continue to push through it without seeking medical advice. It’s not healthy or wise to continue to have sex when experiencing severe or even slight pain, whether just once or on the regular basis. Think of the pain as a natural alarm bell telling you that something is happening in your body that needs to be taken care of.

Pain during sex can be caused from a number of things such as small infections which can be cleared up with home recipes, while some more persistent and regular occurring pains NEED to be checked out by a doctor and may come with more severe side effects and treatments. But what can cause pain during sex and how can I fix it?

  • The most common of all is having insufficient lubrication: Even though your vagina is a natural self-lubricator, there are instances in which the body is unable to self lubricate, resulting in pain during intercourse. It could be as simple as not being aroused and you’ve jumped the gun or you’ve boozed too much at the bar and your “minds telling you yes, but your body, your body is telling you noooo” (yes I’m fully aware I switched the words, hahaha). Or, a slightly less known cause, can be a change in your level of hormones, or more precisely a lack of Estrogen. I recently found out that some contraceptive pills and other birth controls such as the implanon, can cause a lack of Estrogen in the body resulting in Vaginal Dryness. If you must stay on the contraceptive you are on, you can boost your Estrogen levels by eating things high in Estrogen like dried fruits, chickpeas, beans, peas, bran cereals and even swapping your regular milk for soy milk, just to name a few. By adding a few of these foods into your diet, you can boost up Estrogen levels to get back to where you need to be. I also found out, as an Asthma and regular hayfever sufferer, that medications to help these things have drying affects to your whole body (including your vagina) to help stop the symptoms. So as someone with the Implanon, Asthma and Hay fever, what do I do?! Reach for the lubricant. Don’t be afraid to get all slippery with a good tub of lubricant, like AstroGylde, who offer a lubricant specifically for Vaginal Dryness which can help to alleviate the symptoms.
  • You’re allergic to something! While we’re on the topic, you can’t just go to the supermarket and buy the cheapest thing on the shelf. Lubricants are made with different chemicals, which can throw off your vagina’s natural pH balance – those deliciously sweet flavoured lubricants you love could be the reason you keep getting thrush… So stick to a brand who are SPECIFIC with what ingredients are in their products, like Wicked’s range of flavoured lubricants which have little to no glycerin in all of their products. The same goes for things like latex condoms. If you feel any sort of irritation after use, try to stick to “natural” based products and see how that fares with your body.
  • You’re doing unrealistic positions: Blame the Karma Sutra for introducing you to positions which look like a whole lot of fun but realistically turn into how-the-hell-am-I-supposed-to-get-out-of-this-position-without-breaking-my-entire-body. Not fun. It’s always good to experiment and deviate from your normal routine, but the Butter Churner (google it) might not be for you.
  • You may have an STD/STI/pelvic disease: Yeast Infections suck. UTI’s suck. Pelvic inflammatory disease sucks. Herpes sucks. Nobody wants any of those, so you should do what you can to try and prevent them. Simple things like washing/urinating after sex can help prevent UTI’s, while things as easy as adding Natural Yogurt into your diet can help prevent yeast infections.. But, know who you’re sleeping with and get tested regularly if you’re not in a monogamous relationship. And WEAR A CONDOM. So if you’re experiencing symptoms such as burning or itching, whether external or internal, go to your doctor and get it checked out! It’s most likely a small infection, but get it checked to be safe!
  • Your state of mind: Emotions such as fear, guilt, shame, embarrassment, or awkwardness about having sex may make it hard to relax. When you cannot relax, arousal is difficult, and pain may result. Stress and fatigue can affect your desire to have sex. So simple things like taking a shower or bath with candles after a long day at work, or giving each other massages are a great way to De -Stress. When you’re in a more relaxed state of mind and not carrying the weight of the days stress on your shoulders you will be able to focus on having fun with your partner and become more interested in having sex than before.

As previously mentioned, pain during sex can be caused from a number of different things, and is common among all women. It is SO important to your health that if you’re experiencing any re occurring burning, itching, stinging, or painful sensations in general during sex that you consult with your doctor. And hey, even if it is just thrush, at least they’ll point you in the right direction at the chemist and get you on the way to that life you took for granted when you had a non itchy vagina!
