Review: Lady Bonnd Body Wand Massager

Lady Bonnd Body Wand Massager Sex Toy Photo

I am in the process of field testing this amazing vibrator in our store named Lady Bonnd Body Wand Massager… on my back… don’t get the wrong idea! Body wands are not usually my thing. I can tell what makes a high quality wand and I have no trouble recommending them to people seeking a sex toy with intense vibrations. I just have never really enjoyed a vibrating massage… until now that is!! The Lady Bonnd Wand is my new best friend with rumbly, strong and deep vibrations that make for a really pleasurable massage.

Lady Bonnd is a new brand of sex toys available at Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres, designed by a Swedish man named Eric Kalen who I discovered is the founder of LELO!! This for me says it all as LELO is a top of the range sex toy company. These toys instantly caught my attention with their sleek and sophisticated packaging. With so many pink and purple products available, black sex toys really appeal to me. The Body Wand Massager comes in a classy black box which is a perfect place to store the vibrator. Inside the box you will find a USB charger, an instruction manual and the wand itself.

The Lady Bonnd Wand measures just under 30cm in length and is light in weight at 330 grams which makes for easy maneuvering as you massage yourself or a partner. The handle is made from hard plastic with a textured silicone curve which is very comfortable to hold. There are 3 buttons on the handle, on/off, + to increase vibrations and – to decrease.

As mentioned previously, the vibrations of this wand are incredible. I am a very sensitive person and can easily be irritated by high frequency and ticklish vibrations. These are deep, rumbly and are able to be adjusted to different levels by holding in the + or – buttons. There are 7 vibrating functions which is enough to find the one you’re most in the mood for. Even when used at the strongest vibration intensity, the Lady Bonnd wand is very quiet especially when compared with other wands on the market. This wand is rechargeable and once fully charged, it will have approximately 2 hours of usage before the battery runs out.

The body safe silicone head of the wand is rounded with ridges all around and measures approximately 6cm in length. The silicone is a bit of a dust collector so just ensure you give it a bit of a clean before use, especially when using it on intimate areas. The neck of the head is flexible which means it can really get into all those tense spots when used as a body massager. As a sex toy, the flexible neck is perfect when used with one of the three available attachments.

The head of the Body Wand is perfect for a body massage and direct clit stimulation. However the attachments can be used to change the head to provide stimulation to different areas of the body. The three unique attachments are named Bubble, Caress and Bunny. They are placed directly over the head of the wand. This proved to be a little bit tricky to master at first because of the drag of the silicone but nothing really to whinge about.

The Bubble Attachment is reminiscent of small anal beads, with 3 balls gradually decreasing in size measuring 6cm in length from the base. It is safe enough to be use anally and vaginally as once placed on the head is very secure. This attachment is also firm enough to be great for direct clitoral stimulation.

The Caress Attachment is a peculiar looking shape, it has a longer head with an oval base with little nodules. Difficult to explain however trust me when I say this would be perfect for all over stimulation, especially on erogenous zones such as your nipples or clitoris.

The Bunny Attachment feature 2 curved stimulators, one bigger than the other. Perfect for vaginal and clitoral dual stimulation. Think of this attachment as looking like a bunny with odd ears.

The Lady Bonnd Body Wand Massager is an affordable sex toy and can be purchased from Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres. The attachments are available at a low price to which means you’ll have no excuse but to mix it up with all three of these unique and quirky beauties. The toy comes with a 12 month warranty and is sure to please anyone looking for a high quality, diverse and classy body wand. I highly recommend this toy, come in quick to get yours as they won’t last long!!

Review: SONO Penis Sleeves with Extensions and Stroker

Sono Sleeves Image

I have decided to do a double whammy review this week on our prized SONO mens sex toys including their Penis Sleeves with Extensions and Stroker. SONO are manufactured and distributed by the U.S. company Shots America who also produce other familiar products that we stock like Shots Toys, Loveline and Bad Romance to name just a few. The second week that I worked at Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres, we received new stock to place on display which included SONO products. I normally check and test products that look interesting or that I’m not too familiar with, I decided to check these bad boys out.

All SONO Penis Sleeves and Strokers have a lusciously soft almost ‘Cyberskin’ jelly feel. They don’t come in a huge variety of colours but the ones which are available are simple and sophisticated transparent, grey and black. Transparent is best chosen for those of you that like to watch yourself in the mirror like that infamous sex scene in American Psycho staring Christian Bale.

SONO products are made from soft Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) a hybrid of both rubber and plastic which cross-link and bond their structure, making them effectively stronger than the normal one dimensional plastic or rubber products out there. This material is velvety soft, jelly like in texture, easy to clean and very, very stretchy. SONO products are also Phthalate free. For those that don’t know about the harm caused by Phthalate products and exposure of Phthalate plastics to humans, Phthalate toxicity have been shown through clinical trials to cause changes in hormone levels and even cause birth defects.

SONO products are 100% waterproof making them usable in the shower, bath, spa or pool which giving it a wet and wild feel with added suction. SONO products all have their own numbers between sizes and styles. The Penis Sleeves with Extensions and Strokers range between numbers 17-23. There is even a realistic dong that is ribbed worm-like with a soft P-spot butt plug attachment which is great for beginner hetero and gay men looking to start anal training while maximizing comfort, girth, and length in a straight forward style.

Due to the design and texture of the SONO range, they cause no discomfort to the user or partner which is a step forward. Some extenders and strokers can cause slight to extreme discomfort and/or irritation during and after use. The SONO Penis Sleeves with Extensions can fit penis sizes from 3,5 inches to 9,5 inches’ shaft/sleeve length and a ball circumference of 57mm. They also come in both thin and thick with added extension at the tip or head of the penis of approx. 2cm additional to his natural length. For the partner’s both male and female on the receiving end of these extenders this means a new deeper penetration to invoke untouched areas of the vagina or anus that may not have been stimulated and reached otherwise.

 

Sono N.23 Sex Toy Photo
Sex Toy: Sono Stroker No.23 – SONO Penis Sleeves with Extensions & Strokers Review

 

The SONO Stroker No.23 possesses a unique feel and design with its tight massaging tunnel. Coating the shaft of the penis with a good quality water-based lubricant and squeezing a few drops inside of the tight hole for an incredible slick feel as you squeeze past the tight and stretchy unisex opening. The specially designed tapered tunnel that is ribbed from end to end, it becomes deeper the tighter you go. By placing your palm over the open whole you can also intensify and increase the suction for that harder suck which all guys love!

The TPE quality of the stroker is firm enough inside for the user to feel the full effect of every single ridge against their penis while remaining flexible enough to drastically increase the pressure against the shaft and tip of the penis by squeezing with your hand. You are in full control of your orgasm. The TPE material is not only body safe but hypoallergenic for those who may be sensitive to certain materials. The Stroker No.23 is also conveniently temperature responsive too and can be warmed or cooled in some hot or cold water before play.

The stroker’s length is 150mm/5,9 inches with a width of 71mm/2,8 inches, comfortably fitting penis sizes from 3,5 inches to around 8 inches maximum. It has a total weight of 10.83 ounces which is 307 grams. The design of the stroker isn’t sexualised so it may also appeal to some men that live in share houses or with their parents and for people who may be a little shy to go for the more visual throat, pussy and anal products that the SONO Stroker No.23  is nestled against on our shelves.

For general care and tips for SONO sex toys they can be cleaned easily by washing with a hypoallergenic body safe soap or sex toy cleaner and warm water after every use. There is no mention of powder required for the SONO Stroker which may appeal to those that may not want to buy extras for preparation and care. Storage wouldn’t be much of an issue as it isn’t bulky at all and being so soft, can be easily compacted if needed.

In summary, I have fallen in love with these products, the simple innovative and proven effectiveness is a positive attribute. You will always be content and happy going home with these purchases. If I had a penis, I would use these products daily, they may even be considered a healthy addition daily exercise, if you know what I mean! It’s a great gift for someone and considerably affordable overall for their excellent quality. You can purchase these sex toys from Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres at affordable prices so they won’t break the bank. Very nice!

The Amputee Fetish

Viktoria Modesta Photo

What an interesting, diverse and wonderful world we live in. I am a massive fan of anything inventive, unusual or even just plain funny when it comes to sex. I thought on this rainy afternoon I might search the web and delve into the world of Amputee lovers.

I could begin the post with a few “It’s just a bit of armless fun” jokes.. or “she was completely legless at the time” quips but this one is a fetish that is no joke. With quite a big following, it even warrants a section of its own in our Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres adult movie catalogues. So I thought I would do a bit of research and find out a little bit more about it. Firstly let me tell you, there are a lot of fetishes I have looked into and found very difficult to research, every google search leads back to the same old overused article. The amount of stuff I found to read about this one though was far more enlightening and is testimony to the fact that this isn’t as an unusual sexual preference as you may think.

If you fantasise about physically caressing, worshipping and spending intimate time with a stump then you might just be an “Acrotomphile”. They seek out partners with limbs missing in the same way I might seek out a partner with muscular legs. The lovers of this fetish often describe amputees as having “cute little stumps” and that they want to “rub the nub”. They love the way breasts jiggle when a girl walks with one leg. The girls describe seeing their man’s stump as a huge beautiful rigid cock. These are normal people with an individual take on the human form. Generally  don’t wish to amputate a perfectly limbed partner for their own sexual pleasure.

Then there are the slightly more unusual Amputee fetishists labelled as “Apotemnophiles”. These are defined as those that are aroused simply by the missing limb. Most ‘pretend’ to lose a limb themselves whilst some are aroused by the actual removal of a healthy limb. This may sound extreme but having delved into their online chat forums, I can only liken this desire to extreme body modification. I may wince at the thought of an innocent nipple piercing. There are a few out there willing to sacrifice much much more for their lovers or themselves. There are a few who crave the attention that a missing limb gives to such an extent that they would sacrifice one of their own and those that think nothing of removing a limb to make themselves more attractive to their partner.

Apotemnophiles seem to be the bane of the amputee’s life on the dating scene. It seemed to be an ongoing concern for those missing limbs, that potential suitors were interested in only what was left of the body part and not the person attached to it. Girls with big boobs will relate to that!

There are other big ‘phila’ names given to other subsections of this fetish too, for instance, an “Abasophile” looks at a neck brace, crutch or wheelchair in the same way most guys look at a push up bra.

If I had lost a limb, it goes without saying I would most likely think myself less attractive and I would think the world felt the same way too. In this age of transsexuals, pansexuals, sadists and masochists, why shouldn’t an amputee enjoy a sexual following too?

Those who find limbless people attractive fall into different categories. Many view the stump as a very phallic object that they literally want to fuck or caress. Indeed, there is a far greater demand for a missing leg with a stump at the knee than missing arms, hands or feet. According to some studies that can be related to a latent homosexuality in men. More convincingly as far as I am concerned, is the age old sexual attraction people have to someone helpless or in need. This is just a more extreme version. Ideas of domination or caretaking often seem to come into play on the websites I visited while doing research. There are also some people who are simply aroused by the bizarre and abnormal.

It is wonderful that regardless of who you are or how attractive you feel you are, there is always going to be someone out there interested in you. While you may think nature has short changed you by leaving you limbless, nature also provides all the interesting people in the world that find that very thing completely desirable.

When it comes to sex, as long as it is consensual and involves mutual respect then bring it on.

Exclusive Interview with Alexandra Fine Co-founder of Dame Products

Alexandra Fine Photo

I had the incredible opportunity to talk to Alexandra Fine a co-founder of Dame Products at the 2017 ARexpo in Sydney, Australia. Alex is a 29 year old, confident brunette from New York. She began her studies by gaining a Masters in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University in 2011. She focused on her lifelong dream to become a sex educator and sex therapist as she volunteered much of her time hosting a sex talk radio show for the Red Cross. From experience helping other companies startup, she became motivated to begin her own venture. Alex placed her hand’s together pairing her fingers in a fist “When I met Janet, (Janet Lieberman) it was really like a marriage. She was a product engineer who had all of the knowledge on how to make products. I handle the sales and marketing.” Alex’s and Janet’s unique skills combined together to create the company “Dame Product”.

Dame Products has two sex toys one which is Eva a hands-free clitoral stimulator that can be used during couples sex and Fin a handheld finger vibrator that can be used directly for pinpoint stimulation or used so the vibrations are sent through your fingers. Alex demonstrated the Fin which she wore snugly and comfortably on her hand. Unbeknown to me she placed a part of the vibrator on my arm and said “See that!” I was taken back to how powerful the small vibrator was and how much it felt like a finger. The sex toy came with an strap which can be used in two different ways. She took the strap off and held it comfortably between her fingers. She placed it on my arm again, the vibrations that were sent through her finger were incredibly strong. I told her “I have not felt any finger vibrator like that before!” I was blown away and it made me really want one of my own.

I asked “What are your favourite accomplishments since working for Dame?” She said “Dame has been funded through Kickstarter when they had no platform for sex toys. There was difficulty to get sex toys funded online. Kickstarter did a policy change for Dame.” Through the efforts of Alex and Janet, the Dame Product’s Eva and Fin were successfully funded through people worldwide who had also envisioned their product’s to be incredibly pleasurable and useful within their sexual lifestyles. Dame Product’s have now made it easier for people within the adult lifestyle industry to follow in their footsteps to access Kickstarter. Alex said “Everything is important. What I love the most is that we wake up everyday to make it better. It’s challenging with products are you have to be able to stop to sell it.”

I asked “What does your company value the most?” Alex knew this one straight away and said “Dame products values sexual equality, tolerance and transparency. These are all the qualities that relate to our mission. We encourage people to value their sexual lifestyle which should be seen as something equal to brushing your teeth or going for a shower. We will only ever have equality when we have sexual equality. In most cultures, sexuality has often been governed by societies rules. Men are encouraged to express themselves sexually whilst women have not been, this is the original thought that had been the building blocks of our culture. I want that to go away.”

Alex looked around the ARexpo to see how everything was going. I asked “What are the favourite quote’s that inspire you?” She pondered wide-eyed with a smile on her bubbly face. “I love Oscar Wild’s dying quote but I am not sure how suitable it is! I go or the drapes go!!” She laughed and her smile became even bigger “He was unapologetically himself, who knew what he was thinking!”

I asked “Who are your role models?”. Alex took sometime to thoughtfully and honestly answer “All humans, no ones perfect and that’s okay” She added “Sheryl Sandberg and my Grandma’s are amazing.” I bit of intrigue slipped into Alex’s eyes as she thought about the question. I asked “What was it about her grandma’s that inspired you?”. Alex said with strength and determination in her voice “My grandmothers are strong women in completely different ways. One of my grandmothers is a bold women who is defiantly herself and a hoot. I have another grandmother who is a holocaust survivor, she is quiet, kind and artistic.” She added “I see the women who you work with” She said as she pointed to me and people within the expo looking for my work colleagues from the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centre. “I am able to see that I am blessed for the women who came before me in this industry. I want people to know that there is nothing wrong with you and that it’s okay to like it (sex).”

A Models Glimpse Into Japanese Rope Bondage

Shibari Photo

I have been privileged to be the subject in some intimate Sydney exhibitions in the art of Shibari and Kinbaku. The feeling is almost indescribable, I felt euphoria, relaxation, arousal, and intimacy in eye contact with the rope master while the rope was softly stroking my bare skin it was better than any tickle or tie-up I’ve had before. I became what they call ‘rope-drunk’ and although there was an audience I could only see myself and the rope master in the room. It makes me wonder why more people don’t invest in this artistic bondage. It is never intended to be painful but more a form of art which provides both physical and sexual release as well as physical and mental support to the subject.

There are a few different types of rope bondage intricately connected with Japanese culture both ancient and modern. Their main purposes are to exude and unleash euphoria, trust, strength and power, submission, pleasure, pain relief and much more.

The 3 most known practices in Japan are Kinbaku, Kinbaku-bi and the popular now westernised term, Shibari which is a fusional word used by westerners to describe Kinbaku in a milder sense. Many people who decide to introduce rope bondage into their daily life particularly in western countries usually intend to use the rope only for one-dimensional restraint during sex by doing a humble scout tie on either wrist and or ankles. Someone slightly more adventurous may even use it for auto-asphyxiation too which when done properly can heighten sex pleasure and climax.

While the general knots and ties that we may have learned as a kid are reflected through our later adult adventures in eroticism and sexual play, it barely quenches ones’ thirst. It is only the surface to a more artistic and far more beneficial bondage tying. This is why I have decided to overview a brief but interesting review on Japanese rope bondage to give you a different idea of the versatility and uses of rope bondage.

 

Shibari Photo

Primarily, Japan is quite conservative, even still in 2017 you will see older generations who are still very traditional and quite closed minded. However, connecting to that conservatism is this plethora of some of the most radically sexualised pockets of Japanese culture and somehow, they all seem to intertwine much like the rope that is used to connect people and give a person a sense of sexual freedom.

Kinbaku means “tight binding”, while Kinbaku-bi literally means “the beauty of tight binding”.  Kinbaku is a type of Japanese bondage or BDSM which involves tying a person up using simple yet visually intricate patterns, usually with several pieces of thin rope like Jute, Hemp, or linen. They are generally 6mm in diameter, but sometimes even as small as 4mm, and between 7-8 metres long. Much like Shibari’s historical roots, the allusion is to use the hemp rope for restraining prisoners, as a symbol of power, in the same way that stocks or manacles are used in Western BDSM context.

There is much discussion about the distinction between Shibari and Kinbaku, and whether one term is more appropriate than another. For westerners wanting to distinguish the terms, Shibari refers to purely artistic, aesthetic rope, while Kinbaku refers to artistic, connective, sensual, sexual practice. Itoh Seiu, is generally considered one of the fathers of contemporary Japanese rope bondage and used the terms in the 1950s.

Bondage as a sexual activity first noticed in Japan in 1603-1868 during the late Edo period. It was generally recognized by “father of Kinbaku” Itoh Seiu, who started studying and researching Hojojutsu the martial art of restraining. He is credited with the inception of Kinbaku, though it is noted that he drew inspiration from other art forms of the time including Kabuki theatre and Ukiyoe woodblock prints. Kinbaku became widely popular in Japan in the 1950s through magazines such as Kitan Club and Yomikiri Romance, which published the first naked bondage photographs. In the 1960s, people such as Eikichi Osada began to appear performing live SM shows often including a large amount of rope bondage, today these performers are often referred to as Nawashi which means “rope master” or Bakushi from the word Kinbakushi which means “bondage master”.

In recent years, Kinbaku has become popular in the Western BDSM scene and has also profoundly influenced bondage, combining to produce many ‘fusion’ styles. In its most mainstream form thus far, Kinbaku in the fashion industry and has featured in a music video for FKA Twigs’ song “Pendulum” where the music artist was suspended by intricately tied braided hair throughout the clip.

Kinbaku is based on specific rope patterns, many of them derived from Hojōjutsu ties though significantly modified to make them safer for bondage use. Many Hojōjutsu ties were deliberately designed to cause harm to a prisoner and are therefore not suitable for erotic bondage. Ushiro Takatekote which is a type of box tie which surrounds the chest and arms, forms the basis of many Kinbaku ties. The Ebi or “Shrimp” was originally designed as a torture tie and codified as part of the Edo period torture techniques.

Similarly, like many other forms of BDSM and eroticism many of Kinbaku’s roots stem from corporal punishment and medieval torture techniques. Over many years they have been carefully deconstructed and modified to make welcomed additions to the BDSM culture and sexual lifestyles.

Having many friends who play many different roles in the art of Kinbaku, this artful rope bondage is not only restricted to an exhibition both private and public but you many also wear Kinbaku rope ties underneath clothing. Much like the Victorian corset it is hidden underneath clothing during the day. Depending on the certain tie can be used for pain relief in areas of the body, also a form of restraint tied by a Dominatrix on his or her submissive counterpart to wear as a form of training, control and discipline. Some will even wear these ties to assist with lifting breasts and offer more core support in some cases.

You can also incorporate sex toys, massagers, surgical steel anal hooks, and flowers which can all be interlaced with the tying too. It adds another element to the general Kinbaku or Shibari play. This is very popular mostly for aesthetics but still adds a different feel, look and experience. I highly recommend everyone at least try this unique form of bondage once, which is very easy to learn and very fun to try! You can check out tutorials on YouTube which may ignite a new-found addition to your personal erotic repertoire.
