Review: Fun Factory Amourino

Fun Factory Amourino Small Vibrator

Fun Factory Amourino arrived in store today, It is just the cutest coolest thing. I almost don’t care how well it performs, I just want it. My interest is particularly piqued because of the strange looking silicone band that is twisted around it. I have never seen anything like it before and I haven’t a clue what purpose it serves or if it is even part of the sex toy. So I went online to find out from Fun Factory exactly what this toy is all about. It comes in a gold sleeved card board box with a picture of the product’s actual size on it. Inside there is an easy to understand instruction manual with a click and charge USB cord used to recharge the sex toy. It could definitely do with a drawstring bag because the silicone band is something i would lose as soon as I looked at it.

It is one in the range of the miniature vibrators that Fun factory do. They are small and suitable for beginners and experienced users alike. It comes in neon pink or turquoise (petrol as they call it??) and both have a bright yellow silicone band that criss crosses around the rounded ridged tip of the shaft and the small arm of the clitoris stimulator. It is supposedly inspired by cupid and his bow. It is 7 inches long and has a circumference of around 4″. The silicone is very draggy as with most fun factory toys, but when it is loaded down with water based lube it feels great. It has an abs plastic handle with the controls on it. It is the same great quality that you always get from this company and almost goes without saying that it is completely phthalate free and body safe. It is waterproof too which is always a bonus.

Fun Factory Amourino is a miniature rabbit vibrator and the end curves inwards for g-spot stimulation. It has the small clitoris nub, so it could be used safely for anal play too if you wanted (obviously take the band off first). The curve is perfect for prostate play. It has 6 different patterns and intensity settings. It is very easily controlled like other Fun Factory toys. There are 3 buttons, the red fun button for turning it on and off and the plus and minus buttons that take you through the modes and vibration strengths. and the fun button even flashes when it needs you to press it if you are trying to turn it on with the wrong button. The toy comes with a bit of charge in it and takes about 6-8 hours to fully charge. I hate magnetic chargers generally, but Fun Factory click and charge have a good strong magnetic connection that isn’t at all annoying.

So what of this strange little band, well I thought I would let Fun Factory explain how it is supposed to work:

“The gently taut silicone stimulation band is placed between the softly rounded tip and the side bud for clitoral arousal. It externally stimulates the Venus mound (mons) and the vaginal lips (inner and outer labia) – this little detail ensures levels of excitement of a special kind. The Amourino is the first vibrator ever to use a silicone band to transmit vibrations all around the external erogenous zones. The string is removable and can be adjusted to create different sensations.”

I can understand the science behind it, as you can feel the vibrations being conducted from tip to tip along the string, and it would be fun to just experiment with that externally. It definitely gives you other options, you could position it to surround your labia. I like its uniqueness, a rarity in this industry, though I am not sure others will follow behind. For me it is just an accessory. a very interesting , nice one, but the toy is good enough on its own. Fun factory toys have really good motors and even though the toy is small it still packs way more power than a lot of full sized vibrators that cost more. You could also turn the toy around and rub the smooth back against your clitoris for the dispersed kind of sensation I prefer. The vibrations are pretty strong and comparable to the other mini vibes in the Fun Factory range. Personally I prefer the lower settings as they are felt at a deeper level. On its higher settings it is fairly buzzy. There are 6 patterns,as I mentioned, a good amount, and there is something for everyone.

Even though I can take or leave the band, this is a welcome addition to the range.

Reaching Sexual Fulfillment with Diabetes

Katy Perry California Gurls Music Video

Our blood sugar levels can have a huge impact on our sexual life, and when one is suffering from diabetes, our sexual appetite can take a plunge. Men who have diabetes are 2-3 times more likely to experience erectile dysfunction. Many females who are diagnosed with diabetes can experience vaginal dryness. This is caused by hormonal changes to the walls of the vagina and reduced blood flow to the genital area. Diabetics don’t orgasm as easily as others due to vascular changes and nerve damage.

Some sufferers are not aware of the impact diabetes may have on their sexual lives. They can sometimes assume it’s because they’re getting older or because they’ve been with their partner for too long and they’re bored and so they just give up on the whole sex thing. Men have difficulty understanding that their diabetic woman is dry because of the disease and not because she’s not enjoying what he’s doing, and woman have difficulty understanding that their diabetic man is not getting hard, not because he’s not attracted to her, but because of the disease.

In today’s world whether you have diabetes or not, there are so many things that can be done to create magic in the bedroom. A great way to combat the lack of sexual desire is to bring sex toys into your lifestyle. Yes, you heard me correctly! Adding sex toys to your sexual lifestyle can be the answer of your dreams! They can create that bedroom spark that you and your partner may have lost. They can help your and your partner become sexually fulfilled especially if there is an overall lack of energy.

For women, the use of g-spot vibrators, rabbit vibrators and clitoral bullets will effortlessly help with clitoral stimulation, vaginal penetration and g-spot stimulation. Clitoral orgasms are often the easiest type of orgasm to achieve. So using something to make clitoral orgasms easier would greatly help and should be a very good first choice. Clitoral pumps will also do the trick as they can help enlarge the clitoral area, this will help sex toys do some magic. For the males, electro stimulation can be a big help because it will help to increase erotic pleasure and can also be used to relax muscles and reduce stress. There are normal solid cock rings and there are cock rings with added bullet vibration. Hollow dildos are also a great alternative to lifelike dildos.

Superslyde lubrication is also a wonderful way to make sex last longer, increase pleasure and make it all feel more comfortable. There are so many nice lubricants on the market today. There are lubricants that have a cooling affect and lubricants that have a heating affect. There are many different types of lubricant that can all help to enhance the sexual experience. It is also important to note, if you are going through a dry spell, using more lubrication the better because if you use less, you are more likely to have a joyful experience.

I am NOT a medical professional, so any concerns you have, you should always consult your doctor. Always do your research and carefully listen to what your body is telling you. You know yourself better than anyone else does. If your doctor prescribes medication, make sure you ask the right questions. Just like most people ask, “Will it affect my ability to drive??” Ask….”Will it affect my sexual drive?” “Will these tablets cause erectile dysfunction?” These are serious questions. Lack of sex between a couple who don’t discuss their lack of sexual drive, often results in withdrawal and sometimes depression. It can affect your self confidence, having you question things like “I’m not desirable or loved anymore”. Then we go to our doctor and say that we are feeling depressed…he gives us anti-depressants which will affect our sexual drive even more than before! Be clear and open about what is really happening. If you’re down because you no longer have a sexual drive, then say that to your doctor!!! Doctors are not mind readers!!

Remember that there is always a solution…..you only need to look for it!! Have fun and enjoy your journey! The main thing is, to never give up hope and to never stop searching for ways to improve our sexual experiences.

 

Review: Romant Abby

Romant Abby Sex Toy Vibrator

I like the brand ‘Romant’, because they are priced half way between the luxury and basic sex toy brands but definitely look like they belong in the former. A few of them have features that you usually pay a lot of money for. Abbey, is one example. It is not only a dual motor rabbit, it has a temperature feature too.

The product comes in a sleeved pearlescent sturdy gift box that is perfect for long term storage, there is something a touch 1980s about the style of the box within the sleeve , but as I say that is being pedantic considering the quality you get for the price. It is discreet though and only has the brand name written in italics. If anyone saw it they would probably think it contained a fancy pair of crimpers.
Abbey is embedded in white foam alongside the charger and plug. It is USB rechargeable and you get the plug too, which most of the top brands seem to think we can all do without. It is a magnet charger , which can be a fiddle, but with this one, the attraction was so strong as I was plugging in the USB, the magnet and toy found each other without my help! How about that!

This rabbit comes in green plum and pink. It is 9 inches long with 5 inches insert-able. and a clitoral arm of 2 inches. It has a diameter of just over an inch. It is made of beautifully silky silicone, the type of silicone that works twice as well when it is covered in a good water based lube. It is 100% phthalate free and completely body safe and the lower half of the handle is ABS plastic. The buttons are well placed on the handle.There is an on off button, which must be pressed for 3 seconds and an arrow up button which you press for 3 seconds for the temperature function and when you just press it normally it scrolls through modes. The arrow down button also scrolls through modes.

It is worth noting Romant toys don’t seem to come with any charge in them and even in the time it has taken me to write this it will still not turn on, therefore the rest of this review will have to wait until such time as Abbey is ready for me.) To be fair it does say to charge before use in the instructions , it flashes a violet light while charging, which illuminates the handle a little too. After an hour and a half the light went off which is supposed to indicate it is fully charged. Until then the toy would not function. It has enough charge in it to play around with it for five minutes but clearly needs a lot longer for the 3 hours play the instructions promise..

What I can say about it so far is, it is not as easy to operate as the simple manual would have me believe. I couldn’t get any kind of temperature sensation going on at all. All that holding down the temperature button did, was turn off the motor that is in the top end of the toy. I haven’t tried every combination yet to see what it does yet, as obviously it conked out on me. Without the temperature feature the toy works fine. The second motor is not at the base of the shaft it’s in the handle. When the temperature mode is on and the top motor is off you don’t feel much at all except in your palm. When the temperature function is off and you use the modes from the arrow up button, both motors work together well and provide a good level of power.

The shaft has a raised crisscross pattern on it for extra sensation, which some people will love and the ridges are gentle enough and the silicone smooth enough to make this a complementary feature rather than a distracting ,unnecessary one. The clitoral arm is very flexible which in my opinion is a good thing because it will suit more bodies, and I also prefer less pressure there. Another great thing about Abby is that it is very quiet. The 10 different vibration modes are all very different and there is something for everyone. It isn’t rumbling but it isn’t buzzy either, you can find something approaching either with the great choice you have. It is splash proof too which is always good for some in shower fun.

I decide to investigate the temperature feature on line as I am sure they would not make a heating toy OK for showers. From what I am able to deduce I think perhaps I am right, it doesn’t heat up it is exactly the same technology some of their other toys use such as the Lisa rabbit , (also in this range by Romant but a slightly different shape and 3/4 of the price) I think it has sensors inside which detect your temperature and make the toy vibrate accordingly. I feel slightly miss-sold. I don’t understand why it is marketed specifically for a function many of Romant’s sex toys have already. I cannot find anything on the internet to find out exactly how this technology works or what it does. I am assuming the hotter your body is the more intensely it vibrates. That sounds very intriguing.

Aside from discovering Abbey doesn’t heat up, this is a perfectly good toy and if it charges well later on I would have no problem recommending it. Romant have some other great vibrators and rabbits in this range in Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres and if you are looking for something around that price point they are definitely a brand to consider.

Review: Tantus Flurry Dildo

Tantus Flurry Sex Toy Dildo

Tantus are famous sex toy company for their high quality products. As a sex toy consultant at Oh Zone we sell a high range of dildo’s and I never have a problem recommending Tantus to any of our customers. The Tantus Flurry Candy is my current favourite on the wall of dildos. I find really realistic ones quite intimidating but this one is a representation of a penis rather than a duplicate or a caricature. You might call it “penisesque” It comes in three different gorgeous colours candy, ice and twilight. Candy is the one I have chosen, which is pink. Ice is blue and twilight which is violet. The colour choices are wonderful and I would be happy to have any one of them. The colour’s are mixed with a milky white to form this beautiful lollipop candy look.

The Tantus package it comes with stands out from all the others, It looks cool, hip, young and happening. It’s in a transparent plastic case with in an outer hard case, it is sturdy enough to keep for storage but probably too big of a size. You would want to get a drawstring bag or a silk bag for it because it definitely deserves to be looked after. The Flurry is stands upright in the middle of the box with a backdrop with brightly coloured over lapping circles. It looks very majestic.

Tantus Flurry Dildo
Sex Toy: Tantus Flurry

The Tantus Flurry is 7 inches insert-able with a 1.5 inch diameter, it is quite a big size, but the size is quite good compared to the realm of dongs world. It is made of really good quality dual density silicone, like a lot of their sex toys. By that I mean it has a harder density core and a softer density exterior layer. To those not in the know, this makes it feel very realistic. The less pressure you use the softer the dildo will feel. You can increase the level of pressure to achieve a more intense penetration experience. It has a flared flat base which means it can be safely used for anal play if you like, although that isn’t what it is designed for. It is certainly not a beginners anal toy. The base is perfect for use as a strap on toy too. What I noticed was that it is very slightly convex on the bottom, I don’t think this is an intentional design feature, more a happy accident  There would be increased comfort for the harness wearer, it would act as a bit of a shock absorber when you’re pounding away.

The silicone on the outside, which I should mention is of course 100% body safe and phthalate free, is soft and matte and a perfect vehicle for loads of lovely quality water based Lube. You could even even a high quality silicone lube like SuperSlyde. The colour of the sex toy is what sets it apart from all the old fashioned flesh coloured dongs around it, It s like a teenager in a room full of old men. It is a milky white frosty colour with a neon core that graduates downwards to the neon pink base. Wait though, its not only this that shoots it into the stratosphere of coolness. The shape is to die for. The head is more squishy than the shaft and has two beautiful undulating thick lopsided ridges. (I was going to it looks a bit like a saggy foreskin, but it didn’t have the same ring to it). The shape is designed perfectly for g-spot stimulation and more than makes up for the fact that it isn’t curved. It makes for a good thrusting sex toy. It would also be really nice to rub against your clitoris if you have one.

There is not much else to say about this lovely looking thing, except to add that it is waterproof and can be easily cleaned with toy cleaner, detergent, boiled or placed in a dishwasher. Dildo’s are a very common sex toy to purchase, as they can be hygienically taken care of to some of the highest standards. I love the Tantus flurry range and I hope they make more of these!

A Real Coming Out Story

Drag Queen Love

I had known I was gay since I was only 11 years old. When you are just 11 years old, you are just a child and you are vulnerable to other people’s opinions. My family had a lot of negative opinions about being gay. I was raised in an over protective, christian and overly religious home environment. My family had told me being gay was a sin, it wasn’t okay to be gay. Even though I heard a lot of bad thing’s when I was growing up, I always knew how I truly felt on the inside. I always felt that the only thing that was going to make me truly happy is to be who I am and to act how I felt. I wasn’t going to listen to other peoples opinions, judgements or expectations. How they felt about being gay were reflections of who they were. What they said were not reflections of my spirit or who I was as a person. I wasn’t going to choose to listen to them, I was going to do what makes me happy. Being gay is apart of my identity whether they liked it or not. I was tired of being constantly scared that one of my family members would find out that I was gay.

I decided to come out to my family. When I came out to my family, life became a living hell for me. The worst thing I could think of happened and my parents kicked me out of my home. I was excommunicated and my family abandoned me. My brothers and sister’s were not allowed to talk to me, I had nobody. Recently, I made a big decision. I decided to change my lifestyle, try to be the best version of myself and follow my dreams. One of my dreams is to study fashion online. My parents are against men studying fashion because they believe it a women’s line of work. As I said before, I’m going to study fashion regardless of someone’s opinion.

 

Drag Queen Model
Drag Queen: With & Without Makeup

 

My second dream, is to become a drag queen. I want to dress up and put on a full face of drag queen make up. When I become a drag queen, I will truly become a part of myself, I can express myself as much as I want. Due to how I have been raised, I am scared of how other people would think of me if I dress up in drag publicly. I am scared of the judgment not just from other people but also from other drag queens themselves. To be judged by other drag queens is probably a bit of a stretch because we are all expressing ourselves in the same way. I personally believe that I can become an amazing drag queen as I know my own personal strength. These days, I always do my own make up and put my wig on in the bathroom so I don’t get caught by anybody. I snapchat my drag queen look everyone online. I know there are going to be people who will bully me but I do it anyway.

I have moved back home and I hide my make up in my bedroom. I hide it because I have always been scared of my parents finding it. They can never trust us kids. My parent’s constantly go through our stuff to make sure that “we are who they want us to be”. I find shopping for make up quite difficult because of not knowing enough information about it. I always shop and choose my favourite high-end makeup brands like Kat Von D and Anastasia Beverly Hills which I recommend.

Sadly, due to how I’ve grown up I currently have a constant fear of being hurt from being who I want to be. From physical and mental abuse, I had to take an AVO out against my step father.  He had hit me before and also uses derogatory against me. I am much smarter than to just listen to the bad thing’s I have heard, I’m not going to sit down and listen to him. One day, I will be who I want to be.

The Sex Party Experience

Mask Woman Hushing People

Unsurprisingly we get a lot of very open-minded people coming into our sex toy stores and we are lucky enough to get chatting about the most interesting things. Everyone who works here will have been asked the same old questions, Why do you work here? what’s it like working in a sex shop. Do you get many weirdos? I always say the same thing. “I love it, it is so much more than a sales job, because you are dealing with a subject which is so much a personal part of us all.” It immediately gives us a connection. There is a barrier between us and our customers that is brought down just because of the subject matter. It wouldn’t happen if we were selling washing machines. We are privileged to get to know people in a far less superficial way than we probably lots the other people we meet on a day-to-day basis.

I have got into many conversations about sex parties and holidays with people who are in store buying costumes, sex toys and lingerie for events. If I think boundaries are down in our shop then going to one of these events takes that to a whole other level. I have actually been to a couple of parties a long time ago in LA. not really intentional, a friend and I just ended up there. It was a wild end to a wild night. It wasn’t something I would personally get into but it was a lifestyle choice for some of the people I was friends with. Ever since then I have found it fascinating. I am intrigued as to the type of people go and whether the fantasy is the reality.

It goes without saying that you have to be pretty open-minded and non judgmental. The friend I was with was neither of these and she found the whole experience quite awful, she felt her boundaries had been crossed just being there. We just happened upon ours but if you were going to a planned one with a partner, then boundaries are the most important thing to think about. Most of the sex parties out there will have rules to follow and you should have some of your own set too. Most of the people I have met in store have had rules about how far they can go with other people and with whom, they have codes and safe words if one is unhappy with anything. The most important rule you should have is that what ever happens once you are there and passions are running high is stick to the rules. If you are a couple then going solo to parties is probably not a good idea even if you were both in the lifestyle before you met.

 

Eyes Wide Shut Tom Cruise
Movie: Eyes Wide Shut

 

It can be pretty intimidating for obvious reasons and I doubt many people go to their first one with no reservations. Women can go alone and are welcome encouraged and prized. In most parties the women call the shots. Even so, I would think it wise for a first timer to go with someone else or make sure in advance that there is a person known there to chat to, even if it is just the holder of the party. Try to get chatting to someone online before hand if its possible. Go armed with a sense of humour, with your own lubrication, some sex toys, underwear and protection. You should never rely on a third party for the most important things you need. Don’t buy black G-strings as by the end of the night you won’t know which pair are yours.

The most important thing is respect, I have never heard of any event where you had to take part in anything . No means no and It is OK to watch. One of my customers loves to just watch, as you can imagine you see some pretty out there stuff. Just don’t ogle like you are at the zoo. Don’t get offended when people you don’t fancy chat you up. Treat the people at a party with the same respect you would anywhere else. Drugs and drunkenness probably wont be tolerated and you will no doubt be removed.

Just like some people still think sex shops are populated with men in raincoats. It is common to think of sex parties as either high-end or retro. Playboy, ‘Eyes wide shut” orgies, verses middle-aged suburbanites in terraced houses with bowls of keys. There are those parties, and everything in between. Mostly everyone will be nice and normal and no different from you.

The fact that it is usual to take some clothes off means there may well be a larger proportion of the crowd that take care of themselves. So if you are lacking in the self-esteem department I wouldn’t go. Many couples and singles I speak to seem to cite the element of competition as one of the virtues of the lifestyle. It prevents couples particularly from becoming lazy and letting them selves go. It can motivate them to win each others affection. They all love the fantasy element too and getting dressed up in lingerie and costumes is part of that.

It has never been easier to go to a sex party. They are all over the internet and cater to all tastes. Becoming part of the ‘lifestyle” involves a bit more effort, but if you are a good respectful guest, and you make an effort to dress up and follow the rules you will get to know people and eventually get to go to invite only parties. If you are unsure, you can go on-line on swingers websites like ‘Kasidie’, or if you have a Fetish then ‘Fetlife’, and just get chatting to people. If you can, dip your toes in, and go to an event like ‘Hell fire”, where it is by no means an orgy, but it is a little more sex focused than your average night at a night club. If you want to aim high and go glam, then try to get your self into a Killing Kittens party, sponsored by our bestselling sex toy company Lelo. If you have money and want a week of it then why not try ‘Hedonism’. They have holiday resorts all around the world where you can live out your sex party fantasies 24/7 in dream surroundings.

Relieve Sexual Tension on Your Period

Womans X-Ray Funny Devil

I wish I was one of those people who can embrace their periods wholeheartedly but alas, they just piss me off. I remember being very anxious for them to arrive when I was a tween, as they seemed to signal the magical arrival of maturity, womanhood, and french kissing, and sadly I had a slightly longer wait than many – I was 14 and a half I think, when they finally arrived, and felt positively ancient. These days kids in large numbers are getting them even younger than ever before but back then it wasn’t quite that drastic. Still, I felt like quite the late bloomer and was very relieved when they finally did come. Little did I know I would wish them right back away again as soon as the novelty wore off. I am lucky, I don’t suffer from the severe pain, nausea and even dysphoria that some of my friends do at that time of the month but I do get cramps and bloating and sick of the mess and tired and grumpy with them so I try to keep a period-survival kit around to keep me feeling human and since working at Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres I have added a few of our products to that survival kit, as well as having my eye on another which I think would be a really luxurious and sensible addition.

So firstly I always keep raspberry leaf tea for cramps, painkillers, and comfy clothes at my disposal when I feel the bloat coming on. (I am not very regular but mother nature has blessed me with the oh so helpful indicator of going up a pants size when I am a few days from due. Thanks for that.) I also keep my yoga mat handy to look at guiltily when I’m complaining about the cramps to my partner and anyone else in my immediate vicinity or on Facebook. Stretches do help and when I force myself I’m always glad, but why is it that when we feel like crap we really don’t wanna go to the effort of doing things that will help us feel better?! Anyway, the yoga mat also helps for comfortable seating when I call my army of cats to me for cuddles and warmth, while watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer (the early 90s film version with Luke Perry, suck it Joss Whedon) and gorging on ice cream and Smiths original crisps, which is a lot more comforting than yoga, to be honest. Essential oils help me relax and I like to use them in a burner and for belly massage, as well as on period zits which pop up like clockwork for me, and warm socks are important cause I have crappy circulation and cold feet make period cramps that much more miserable.

 

Satisfyer Pro 2 Oral Sex Toy
Sex Toy: Satisfyer Pro 2

 

Now most of you have probably heard that orgasms and sex generally help relieve period cramps and I have found that to be true for many years. Condoms are in my period-essentials kit (although I don’t normally use them with my long term partner) because it makes clean up easier. Period sex is awesome and I’d honestly never be with a partner who couldn’t handle it, though I know not everyone feels the same. Most of the products I’ve added to my stash since working at Oh Zone help with making that easier. Firstly a reliable vibrator or similar sex toy is always a help (my go to is the Satisfyer Pro 2 which simulates sucking rather than vibrations, and is most effective for me). Even if you don’t have a partner, or one on call for every time the cramps get bad at any rate, masturbation can generally help a lot and if you needn’t get your hands bloody it’s even better. Use a toy that can be easily cleaned and requires as little effort as possible I say!

Soft Tampons Womans Period Product
Sexual Health: Soft Tampons

 

Soft tampons are a little gem I had never heard of before working at Oh Zone. They are just a little sponge, hygienically wrapped, which can be inserted and used like a regular tampon. Dampening the tip with lube or water, you squish it up and push it into your vagina and it is super comfortable and super absorbent. Way more comfortable than using regular tampons. But the really super dooper thing about them is that you can wear them while you have sex, even penetrative sex, and you generally can’t even feel them, and neither can your partner. For me they work so well that no blood is even transferred onto my partner when we have sex. Extra lube is your friend though. These tampons are so absorbent you will want a little help in that department. I just love not having to worry about blood on the sheets or towels, and weirdly I seem to get a little raw from penetration when I am bleeding but soft tampons eliminate that problem. Superslyde lubricant is also now in my emergency kit as a result. It’s also great for shower sex (another period-sex fave) because it is silicone and won’t all be washed away in the shower like a water based lube would be.  If you are into shower sex either during menstruation or at any other time, Sex In The Shower make some great products to make that more convenient and satisfying, from waterproof bullets to handles and props to make achieving different sex positions easier and safer in the hot steamy and slippery bathroom environment.

 

Body Wand Original Heavy Duty Massager
Sex Toy: Body Wand Original

 

Earlier I mentioned massage, and I think it’s one of the best things you can do during your period, either self massage or at the hands of another. What can make it a lot easier and more effective though is a Bodywand or other massaging wand. This style of toy comes in many different sizes, battery powered, plug in, or rechargeable, and there are even waterproof varieties. I highly recommend getting one of these babies as not only are they great for helping to achieve orgasm, they also do a pretty neat job of just massaging you anywhere else on the body you need to relax, which makes sense I guess since that is what they were originally designed for before everyone figured out they were even more fun when diverted for sexual purposes!

Lelo Siri
Sex Toy: Lelo Siri 2

 

Whenever I am feeling yuck I also like to crank the tunes. Whether it’s something relaxing or something to scream along to and vent all my frustrations, music always helps get me through. On my wishlist for period comfort is Lelo’s Siri 2 music vibrator. This nifty toy detects sound vibrations and pulses along with the beat. Hollering along with L7’s Shitlist already helps, but how much better could it be if it was also getting me off at the same time?

Pretty Love Crazy Hot Vibrator Heating
Sex Toy: Pretty Love Crazy Hot Vibrator

 

And of course, a hot water bottle or heating pack has always been on my must-have list for when good old Aunty Flo comes to visit, but if you have a spare couple of hundred bucks I now have an even better suggestion – the really rooly truly awesome invention that is the heating vibrator. Think about it – this toy combines two of the most brilliant tools for relief of cramps – comforting, relaxing heat AND orgasms on demand. Can you really get any better than that? I don’t think so? Like, ok, maybe if it also dispensed ice cream, but somehow I don’t think that’s ever gonna happen. Although a girl can dream. I think heating vibrators are a great idea for winter, as I am not a major fan or icy cold toys on my nether regions, but it only recently occurred to me that they would be a fantastic option for masturbation on-the-rag and I am almost looking forward to the dreaded flow next month as I’m so getting one of these amazing beauties for myself. Probably the most popular one I have sold is the Pretty Love Crazy Hot rabbit style vibrator. It’s gorgeously purple, safely silicone, and the shaft is shaped well for awesome g spot stimulation. Both the shaft and the clitoral stimulation arm have 10 modes, it has 2 motors and is a rechargeable toy so you don’t have to worry about replacing batteries. This toy is also fully waterproof which makes it super handy, and it has a digital temperature display so you can keep an eye on how hot things are getting.This toy heats to 45 degrees celsius, so you won’t burn yourself but just be pleasantly warmed. It is also easy to operate, simple operation buttons located on the handle.

So there you go, I hope I’ve given you a few ideas for getting through your bleedy times, and don’t forget if you are experiencing any severe symptoms, visit your doc and tell them what’s going on.

Halloween at Oh Zone Caringbah & Costumes

With the end of Halloween steadily approaching. We have some more entries into our Adult Lifestyle Centre Halloween Competition. Down at Oh Zone Caringbah we have a haunted shop decorated with horrifying delights. Underneath Oh Zone Caringbah’s front counter, we have the body loading area. It is a murder scene of a woman’s leg and head ripped from limb to limb.

At Oh Zone Caringbah, we literary have on display the face of nightmares. This man is known as the “Pale Man” a mytholgical albino creature who devours children. A face without any eyes or ears, just a nose with just an opening for a mouth. He walks around with eyes indented into his hands. The Pale Man can tap into the world’s subconscious and uses his ability to give physical form to everyone’s nightmares. The Pale Man was recreated in the Pan’s Labrynth movie by the Mexican film director named Guillermo Del Toro. Gel Toro said that the Pale Man symbolised:

The idea in ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ was it was going to represent the church, [so] I thought it would be powerful to use the hands with stigmata and then you put eyes on it. But although I had the idea and knew how it was going to operate, when we saw it on the set with the makeup on actor Doug Jones, everybody froze and we went, ‘Oh my God, this is amazing.’

This face also symbolises a Japan mythology of a man named “Tynome” who was blinded and murdered. He walks around as a spirit with his eye sockets in the palm of his hands and all that get to close to him get eaten bones and all. He seeks revenge on people even if they have done nothing wrong.

Mythological Creature: Pale Man or Tenome

 

We have our Lelo stand featuring their luxurious range of vibrators. Their range is called “Pleasure Objects“. The stand includes everything from a Lelo Smart Wand, Lelo Soraya to the Lelo Mia 2. Protecting the Lelo Vibrator’s are the resident skulls with webbed hair and black fedoras. There are pretty cool giving the place an overall grunge look.

Hanging from Oh Zone Caringbah’s building structure is this spider with twisty curly legs, red, big angry eyes and a beautiful set of red fangs. His looks a little bit angry but his super adorable! There are also orange spider’s all over the shop taking care of all the glass cabinets storing surgical steel, butt plugs, Penis Pumps, Eletro kits and much more.

With creepy news sweeping headlines including:

Creepy Clown Craze Sweeps the Globe” by CNN

“‘Killer clowns’ in Canada: Why are these sightings spreading?” by BBC

People think that the Killer Clown groups who are scaring locals have been created based upon a massive Facebook prank related to the news of the recreation from Stephen King movie “IT”. IT is a clown who breaks down peoples deepest fears whilst living off of people’s memories and the power of trauma. The clown is wearing irresistible, red laced lingerie with a Las Vegas style cape.

From our Oh Zone Penrith store we have Leonie, dressed as the drop dead gorgeous prom queen. Her throat was slashed, her face and sash splashed with her own blood. Her luscious hair and cold face went white with fright.

We have the beautiful Leonie witch, she has age spots, dark under eye bags. and her precious skeleton dog who is the friendliest fellow in all the town. Her skin is a bright witchy green as she wears a classical, silver sparkling, black dress that goes all the way to the floor with her dress sleeves arms cut into bat like triangular points. I can imagine the witch going out at night, as she pulls her dress strategically in one swoop. She sits onto her witches broom to fly into the night. Is she a good witch, bad witch or chaotically in between?

Review: Perfect Fit Fat Boy

Perfect Fit Fat Boy

I’m a perfect fit fan. I love a lot of their products and I think that they’re really well done – the company has for a long time focused on quality male toys, and they’re continually branching out. Perfect Fit produces cock rings, cock extenders, ball huggers, anal stretchers, strap ons and more. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of male orientated toys out there, but there actually is. It all depends on how you look at the toy and think outside the box according to what it would normally be used for. For example, some rabbits could be used for anal and perineum stimulation, where the We-vibe classic shape can be used for prostate play, and PiA intercourse. A variety of toys on the market can be used differently to their ‘intended’ use simply because if a toy is marketed too broadly, then it might not sell as well.

The product from Perfect Fit that I’m going to be looking at today is the perfect fit Fat Boy. It is primarily designed as a stretchy cock extender. What makes this different to others is that this brand has a space for your balls and that’s actually what holds the entire sleeve in place. It wraps over like a condom, and there’s a small snug ring for your balls to poke through which provide stability for the toy during intercourse – meaning that unlike a lot of other sheaths this one will simply not come off no matter how rough that you are with it. What I have always liked about the fat boy, in comparison to others, is just how soft and squishy that they are and that they also come in various different sizes as well as colours; clear and black. People underestimate this toy because they view it as simply a cock extender, when it’s not.

Men’s Sex Toy: Perfect Fit Fat Boy Thing Measurements

Due to the inner nodules of this toy which provide stimulation during sex this sleeve can be used as a men’s masturbator as well. Indeed, it can be used for foreplay before you wear it for intercourse! Lube up the inside (which you should do for comfort anyway) and use it as just a regular stroker. It’s as soft as the tenga eggs, and it makes for an amazing subtle and sweet masturbator that can stretch to encompass your entire shaft. Because it is solid, with no hole at the end you’ll also find when used just right, that I can provide suction as a masturbator as well.

The cock sheath can also be used to add thickness and girth to any of your favourite toys as well. Especially useful if you have your favourite dildo, and it’s just not really cutting it any more. What’s better is that this will work for any of your vibrators as well to increase their girth and size.

There are four designs in the Fat Boy Range. There are two fat boy thins – which are thin extenders which come in both a shorter length, and a longer length, then there is the fat boy Sport, and the fat boy original both of which are super thick extenders. It is extremely important that if you’re going to use this as an extender that you get one that matches up to your size in length. If you don’t then you’re going to have an airpocket at the front and it’s not going to work as well. Ideally, you want to get something that’s just your size, or a little smaller. Remember the material is extraordinarily stretchy and will accommodate. Also, clients should be made aware of the fact that they need to be able to maintain an erection whilst using this toy – if they’re struggling with prostate or ED, then they should look at getting a Male Strap on instead.

 

Join a Free Fetish Community

Fetlife Community
During the short time I have been a part of the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centre, I have only ever had a couple of customers inquiring about fetish events, clubs and classes etc. One of our lovely colleagues, told me that she had quite a few inquiries about the fetish community. She was wondering where and how a person can begin entering the fetish community. I will answer her question now with the knowledge of my many years of experience.
The best place to begin in the fetish community is on the Internet. The internet is a wonderful place to start, these days you can find out just about anything you like once you click in the right keywords. You need to use a search engine like google if your wanting to explore the fetish scene, the correct word to type in is “BDSM” and click search. When the search engine returns your results, you will find there are a lot of different resources you can learn from including web pages, blogs and even youtube videos. The best thing to do to submerse yourself in the fetish lifestyle is to start reading information about BDSM and fetishes. Submersing yourself in the information will help you gain the understanding of the mentality behind it all.There is a lot of reading that you need to do, to learn all about it!
Once you have read and understood the basics, you can start to consider joining an online fetish community named Fetlife.com. It is important to mention Fetlife is not a dating site. There are some people in the Fetlife community who treat it like a dating site only to discover that it is not one and get no where with it. Fetlife is only for those who take this lifestyle seriously. If you’re just curious about BDSM or fetish lifestyle or just wanting to “pick up” this website is not for you. You will need to go to dating websites like OkCupid, RSVP or eharmony.
Fetlife Community Badge
I Love Fetlife Badge
Fetlife is a website for BDSM kinksters to share their journeys and experiences through their online profiles. The community shares their personal photos, videos (available to members only), poetry, writings and erotica. On Fetlife you will find Dominants, Submissives, Masters, Slaves, Daddy’s, Babygirls, Kinksters and many more. When you first join Fetlife, I would recommend to just sit back and interact with people on there. They are generally quite happy to chat. You can exchange opinions, ideas and they will do their best to answer any questions you may have. You can talk about almost any topic you can think of including sex toys, sex positions, bondage, fetish and BDSM.
After you learn about the Fetlife community your next step is to meet people in the scene. You can meet people through a munch-up even which is a gathering for dinks and nibblies. This is the best way to start. There is a drop down menu which list’s the different events, gatherings and classes coming up. Some events are by private invitation only and are not on the events list. The best way to start with the events is by attending the “Hellfire” club. It is a lighter atmosphere with great energy!  The Hellfire Club is a good place to get into the swing of things without it being too overwhelming for a beginner.
Since BDSM is a type of lifestyle, it is a way of life and there are rules each person who is in it needs to follow. The same applies to Fetlife events, following rules is a MUST! If rules are being violated, you will be kicked out of the club immediately no matter who you know! To the Fetlife following provides safety which is everything to the community and respect is a huge factor to! So please don’t go in drugged or drunk or thinking that the rules don’t apply to you. It will get you nowhere.
Floggings take place throughout the night in different parts of the club. There is also a dance floor and a show which takes place at some point during the evening. There is a dress code. The dress code is fetish, goth or kinky. You generally have to wear black. If you take no effort with the rules, you get no entry to the event. The people are very friendly and welcoming.  Once you start meeting people, you will find that most of them will be quite happy to help you along on your journey. Everything else will fall into place on its own. Remember….be sensible and don’t judge. Enjoy!!
Meeting people seperately requires a lot more work and should be done with caution. You can meet people preferably at a munch or a public place. It’s also a good idea to let someone know where you will be meeting the person, so someone knows where you are at life times. This person is called a “safe person”. Remember….Safe, Sane and Consensual!!
