Anal Play – I Did It My Way!

Fun Factory Flexi Felix Anal Beads In Black

Some of my most treasured possessions in my sex toy drawer(s) worthy of being saved in the unlikely event of a house fire include my anal toys. I find these toys to be the most used and loved in my solo and partnered sex life-there are so many different options that each lead to a uniquely pleasurable experience. Butt toys are a great way of experimenting with anal play and are particularly appropriate for those who may have some reluctance with this type of play.

I am proud to admit that 80% of my bootie toy collection consists of Fun Factory products. There are many reasons why I am a huge fan of Fun Factory’s amazing anal product line, their high quality, funky designs and potential for inducing exquisite pleasure being the obvious highlights.

 

My Favourite Sex Toy Is My Hand

Fun Factory are a German based sex toy company, producing quirky, playful and amazing quality sex toys at affordable prices. They are made from medical grade silicone which I have found to have its own unique texture. Unlike other brands that have a silky-smooth feel, the silicone that Fun Factory use for their products is slightly textured and grabby. It feels amazing and is great when used with a high-quality water based lubricant such as Pjur Back Door Comfort Water Based Anal Glide. Medical Grade Silicone is a non-porous material which means it’s very hygienic hence great for anal play. With waterproof anal toys, I highly recommend using a foaming toy cleaner such as Wicked Foam n Fresh to keep them spick and span.

Safety is paramount when experimenting with toys and anal play. Unlike a woman’s vagina, the anus and gastrointestinal system is long and there is much larger room for error (To put it simply, you can lose things up there!!). To avoid a trip to the emergency department, it is vital that any toys you are using for anal play have a wide base and solid handle that is easy to hold onto so as to avoid missing toys.

Flexi Felix Anal Beads

To be perfectly honest, I used to have some big judgements of the Flexi Felix Anal Beads. I couldn’t understand what Fun Factory were thinking creating a butt toy with a weird alien head handle (According to Fun Factory, it is actually a beetle head). It freaked me out and I never actually opened the box until a few months of working in the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres. Well you know the saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover?” This is exactly what I insist customers do when I present them with the Flexi Felix as I believe that once you really check them out, you will agree that they are amazing anal beads!! Their elongated shape means they are really comfortable to insert and remove. This is super important when it comes to any sex toy especially anal beads and means they are perfect for anal bead beginners. Flexi Felix Anal Beads are 32cms in total length and are available in black or pink.

Bootie Butt Plugs

The Bootie Butt Plug is a toy I hold near and dear to my heart as it was the first but plug I ever owned-my first introduction to butt toys in fact (I know, a very sweet story…Hold back your tears). Fun Factory have uniquely designed these toys, straying away from the traditional straight plugs and creating a curved plug with a tapered end that is a comfortable and snug fit. The base is intended to sit comfortably between your butt cheeks and is long enough to hold on to with ease. The Bootie plugs are available as singles in small, medium and large or in a box set with all three. The small is perfect for absolute beginners at 7.5cm in length and 2.5cm girth. The medium at 9.3cm length and 3.5cm width is a decent step up for intermediate users and the large at 11.1cm length and 4cm width is perfect for those who are experienced anal play peeps.

B Balls

What do you get when you combine a Kegel exerciser and butt toy?! The Fun Factory B Balls of course!! The latest addition to my collection, this toy is stepping up to favourite position due to the exquisite pleasure it brings to my life. The B Balls are available in single or double, with each ball featuring a weighted ball within which creates a subtle shaking and vibrating-like sensation when moved around-no batteries required either! The pulsations of this travel through your body, a unique feeling that I am sure both men and women will love just as much as I do. The B Balls are available in Black/Red or Purple/White. The only part of these toys I will fault is the design not being smooth all over. I am not a fan of any sex toys that have cracks or creases, especially anal toys and these do. Prior to use, I would recommend anal douching and giving them a thorough cleaning after use, ensuring to not miss these spots.

This Fun Toy Makes My G Pop!

Fun Toys Gpop Package Sex Toy Image

The best surprises come when you take a toy home that you had no idea you had been looking for. What I mean is you buy something to try and it turns out to be your new favourite. And this surprise came for me in the form of the Fun Toys Gpop Plug! This little guy flew completely under my radar. I must admit when I first saw its packaging the design nerd in me got a bit excited. The plug comes in a tube like box which is nearly seamless. A seamless circle! That’s so cool. The Fun Toys Gpop is so unique that it’s designed to work for both female G-Spot stimulation and the male P-Spot or prostate gland. I don’t know why, but this might have been one of the reasons I over looked this Gpop plug. Assuming as most should that because the anatomy differences between the location of the G-Spot and the P-Spot how could one toy work so well for both?

I am always on the hunt for new and stimulating plugs, in the past, I have never found much satisfaction from vibrating toys. (Think my P-Spot needs a bit more “unf” if you know what I mean?). I am very pleased to say that after using the Fun Toys Gpop I will be giving a few more vibrating toys a second venture.

When I review any product I like to include both the up and downs for the product as things can always be improved on. This review will be a bit different as I don’t have anything negative to say about the Gpop. I am also not saying its “Perfect” just that anything the Gpop is lacking can be found in another of the Fun Toys “Pop” series.

Fun Toys Gpop Plug Size

This Gpop is the perfect size to start your sexual adventures with. The tiniest bit of a good water based lube like the “WICKED Toy Love” Lubricant found at Oh Zone stores and the Adultsmart website. It really just needs a little bit, this toy is so smooth it slides right in. But you can use whatever your favourite is. Keep in mind that as the Gpop is a silicone toy it will be best used with water based lubes!

And now for the exciting part. The Gpop may appear small and slightly underwhelming to anyone more familiar with anal play, however, its design fits perfectly into that ever so favourable P-Spot. For the first time in a while, I was very appreciative for the smaller size of this plug, even the handle fit comfortably between the cheeks. I could have worn it for much much longer, and will be in the very near future. Now I mentioned earlier I haven’t been a fan of vibrating toys in the past that changed in a moment with this toy! Its design, and I know I* have mentioned the design already, but it really sits on the P-Spot, and then the vibrations begin!!! The vibrations are almost focused on the P-Spot and not aimlessly vibrating the hollow of the anal cavity like I have experienced in the past with other vibrating toys.

Fun Toys Gpop Plug Vibrations And Controls

The power button and vibration variation control is an easy to reach button located on the top of the loop ring handle. Makes it easy for you to reach around and press to adjust the variations and speeds, and easy for a partner to switch it up for you as well. Gpop has 3 speeds with 6 variation patterns. There is one particular pattern 3rd or 4th on the settings that acts like a crescendo of vibrations and it was pretty great! While some other vibrating plugs come with more power and more settings to your enjoyment, the Gpop form and fit to the inner workings of the body make this a stand out plug!

Fun Toys Gpop Plug Is Shower And Bath Time Friendly

The Fun Toy Gpop also says its fully shower and bath time friendly. I’m not normally one to take time for a human skin soup soak, but the idea of sitting back and letting the Gpop work its magic in the warm embrace of a tub does seem very appealing.

Why I Love The Fun Toys Gpop Plug

Another reason the Gpop has made an impression with me is while I might be more anal-centric my partner is not. And while it’s fun for him to play with toys on me, it’s also fun when we can both enjoy the collection of toys together. ( Please remember if you are ever sharing toys even with a consistent partner it’s still important to make sure they are cared for and cleaned (The toys… and your partner too I guess. I like to have the WICKED Foam toy cleaner from Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres handy). The unique loop ring handle on the Gpop makes this toy very easy to use as a vibrating wand, tantalising and massaging… really any part of the body. The smooth Silicon surface means for a friction free glide around those intimate and perhaps more delicate areas. He was truly impressed with the impact and sensations this little plug gave us! There are many prostate massage tools available but I really love the Fun Toys Gpop Plug!

3 Times The Anal Fun With B-Vibe!

b-Vibe Triplet Fuchsia Sex Toy Image

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to receive the newest rechargeable butt plug released by b-Vibe called the Triplet and my gosh am I impressed and more than happy that this is now part of my toy collection, it’s definitely my new favourite plug and is currently sitting at the top of my toy drawer ready to go whenever I need. I was very happy when I was handed the black one as it is my favourite colour but it also comes in a nice fuschia if that’s more your style.

I’ve been impressed by b-Vibe since noticing the Rimming toy when I first started working at Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres over a year ago now but at that point hadn’t ever experimented with anal play so you can only imagine how intimidating the rimming toy would have been for me. After a bit of researching, I noticed b-Vibe had 2 other sized toys available at the time and knew they were a must have in the stores and now is my go to brand whenever customers come in looking for a good quality butt plug whether they are a beginner or an anal expert who is looking to receive the benefits of a prostate massage.

b-Vibe Triplet Packaging

Let’s start with the fancy packaging all 4 plugs come in. They come in a nice black box with a photo of the plug on the front and covered with all the basic information any customer would need to know before purchasing one of their products but you’ll also find a booklet guide inside the box with all the information you’ll need. Once you open up your box you’ll see the hard case b-Vibe has included with your toy and it is literally the best carry bag I’ve ever seen a toy company give to their customers for toy storage, it has a pocket inside for you to put your charging cord and remote so that they’re separated from the toy when in storage. You’ll never have to worry about losing anything or having your toy melt onto another silicone toy in your toy box. The case reminds me of the old game boy carry cases you’d have to purchase separately and they wouldn’t be cheap either so BIG CLAPS and a 10/10 for b-Vibe for being so generous!

b-Vibe Triplet Material And Recommended Lubrication

The Triplet is made out of seamless body safe silicone, it is phthalate free, latex free and is non-porous. Because it made out of silicone I’d recommend sticking to water based lubricants but if you do prefer silicone based lubricants you can use Super Slyde with your toy and not have to worry about it eating away at the material, it’ll last a lot longer as your body won’t absorb it and it is a great anal lube as it is super slippery.

b-Vibe Triplet Fuchsia Sex Toy Image
Sex Toy: b-Vibe Triplet Fuchsia

b-Vibe Triplet Features

b-Vibe Anal plugs all come with a wireless remote which works from up to 30 feet away and is really easy to sync up with your plug. The remote takes one BP-232 battery which is already included with your toy.

Triplet has 2 strong motors in it, it comes with 6 different speeds and 15 pattern settings so whether you are someone who can’t handle strong vibrations or someone who loves a strong vibe this toy will cater to all your needs and the remote even allows you to increase and decrease your patterns if need be. It has 3 beads starting from smallest to biggest and is nice and flexible so you always feel comfortable no matter what position you are in once it is inserted.

Unfortunately, none of the b-Vibe range is 100% waterproof they are only splash proof and shower friendly so I guess that makes me half happy, it would be awesome if they’d work on that with their next release but one can only hope.

I love a toy that tells you when it needs to be charged and this one does just that, the bottom of your toy will start flashing at you once it is getting low in charge and it only takes 2 hours to completely charge once flat and will last you about an hour or so in play depending on what settings are used. To charge up your toy you must simply connect your rounded end of the charging cord to the bottom of your b-Vibe which is really simple as it just works like a magnet and then you must connect the other end to any USB dock or computer. Your toy will come with a bit of charge when you first purchase it but I’d recommend putting it on charge before first use so there isn’t a chance of it going flat half way through your first session.

You also have a travel lock option so you’ll never have to worry about your toy accidentally going off in your bag when out in public and to find out how to activate the travel lock you have to go through the instruction manual which I find a plus as most people tend to throw that part away when there could be extra information in there that you may need to know but didn’t think about when first opening up the toy.

b-Vibe offers a 1-year warranty so that if there are any manufacturing issues you find with your product they are more than happy within the first year to sort that out for you if need be.

Enjoy and be safe

Review: Aneros for Him Peridise Set

Aneros for Him Peridise Set Anal Sex Toy Photo

I had been told one or two details about the Aneros for Him Peridise Set. I figure it would be worthwhile taking a closer look to see what they are all about, as they aren’t exactly running off the shelf. For something that looks like quite a high end product and is priced as such, I’d better find out what the story is!

I am by no means an expert in butt stuff. In fact, aside from the odd pinky slip from time to time, I have virtually no experience in the wonderful world that is prostate stimulation. Although having said that, I am the type that will more or less try anything once if not a few times just to make sure.

In comes the Aneros for Him Peridise Set. It comes in a set of four. Looking at the box, it displays the four sort-of lumpy tear drop shaped implements which increase in width in small integrals. It is fairly safe to assume having a pack of 4 anal stimulators is to cater for those who have precisely zero butt stuff experience and might be understandably apprehensive about sticking something in their holiest of holies for the first time. It appears this set is for those willing or hoping to work up to larger sized anal sex toys which is a good idea.

To be fair they don’t look particularly intimidating which is probably great for someone who is thinking of dipping their proverbial toes into the realm of anal play. Neat. But by the same token I can’t imagine they would look very exciting for someone who is accustomed to putting things in their butt. They’re pretty plain looking and even the largest size is quite small, when compared to regular butt plugs.

Okay, so at this stage I would have guessed this would be a fairly entry-level product… BUT according to their description, the sex toy is actually designed to trigger a peristaltic response within the body. This means the muscles in the anus are going to involuntarily contract and relax alternately which will in turn enhance the sensations of it being in there. This will increase blood circulation, therefore release more endorphins into the body. To put it plain and simple, your body will simultaneously try to both pull this in and push it out which will increase the stimulation. It will feel awesome! Ok, that’s pretty cool…

Sex Toy: Aneros for Him Peridise Set

 

Although I can’t possibly imagine what that feels like, the sex toy is beginning to sound like something I want to try and could possibly get into. After reading a few bits and pieces online it actually is beginning to sound a little bit more of a training tool. Not too dissimilar to Kegel exercises and is meant to feel awesome at the same time. That’s pretty sweet. What IS annoying though is that the booklet included has very little information. For something that costs a decent chunk of change and can potentially provide awesome sensations and results, I would have thought they would have included a bit more information or perhaps an outline of how to achieve the best results. But to each their own, I suppose.

Sweet, this is all sounding pretty promising! You get an awesome feeling whilst strengthening certain muscles which could potentially lead to even more intense orgasms. It is a pretty discrete looking set toy to. Wow, I could get into this!

Oh wait. They’re hard plastic. I checked the box, checked the booklet and checked the website… I can’t find what these things are made of. Apparently the materials are FDA approved, but that’s all I can find. According to a review I found it’s made of a medical grade plastic polymer, which is all well and good but I wouldn’t mind getting that information from the actual manufacturer, not a random blog.

What the hell..? Look, I know I’m new to this but I still wouldn’t mind knowing exactly what’s going inside my body, particularly in the most delicate part of my body. But aside from that, it’s hard plastic?! I don’t really want to be probed where the sun doesn’t shine by something that’s rock hard. What if it snaps? Is it porous? Will it harbor gross bacteria? They have a flared base as most anal stimulators do. Is it going to hurt if I want to sit down while I’m using it?? If I’m going to shove something up my butt I would prefer it to have at least a little flex in the sex toy maybe even a silicone coating or something so it’s not quite so rigid.

All of a sudden I don’t know about the Aneros for Him Peridise Set anymore… I was pretty pumped for them until I got them out of the box… I have to say I’m a bit sceptical and a bit disappointed to say the least.

The Cool Stuff:

  • Great concept and from what I understand it is new technology.
  • It will give you a potentially awesome feeling with stronger orgasms.
  • It is unisex designed and unanatomical so all sexualities have a green light to try them out.

The Bad Stuff:

  • It is made from expensive plastic which is a bit of a gamble for something made out of god-knows-what. There is very little information about the material available from the manufacturer.

My Final Verdict: Am I still interested in trying them? Yes. Am I going to roll the dice and fork out $110 for the set? No. If they sent me home with a sex toy, I’d happily give them a whirl. I’m man enough to admit that I was wrong about my initial impression if that happens to be the case but I can’t get past the fact that the material might be a little unforgiving in and around my toosh. If you’re braver than me and got the cash by all means grab a set. I’m sure they will feel good but for aforementioned reasons I’m going to have to give this one a no. Aneros, if you’re reading this, release a set with a silicone outer layer and we’ll talk. Peace out.

Review: Je Joue Dua & Nuo

Je Joue Dua Massager

Now I have to admit that I’m guilty of having some negative first impressions of Je Joue and my reasoning’s were terrible. It wasn’t just the price that shocked me and how similar the branding is compared to some other major players in the sex toy industry like LELO and L’amourose and due to not knowing about Je Joue earlier. I was under the unreasonable impression that it was just some “wannabe rip off” of these other premium toy companies but after I did research on Je Joue and got my hands on some of the toys properly I can easily and safely say that I was wrong and I believe that Je Joue not only deserves a spot on the shelf next to theses other amazing Sex toys but they actually have several products that I would easily recommend to be in your hands.

To my surprise Je Joue is actually a well established London based company with offices branching out to the east coast of the U.S.A and Shanghai as well. Like their competitors they have a great variety and range of products for example cock rings, Kegel exercisers and of course vibrators. The company started off pretty small back in 2008 and now has products in many different countries all over the world. Out of all their products there was 2 in particular that stood out as toys that looked a little more complicated and a more unique then the rest of their range, the Dua and Nuo.

The Je Joue Dua & Nuo are both very similar, they are both remote controlled vibrators and they share most of the same features with the shape and outward design being the only big difference.  The Je Joue Dua is designed as a g-spot and clitoris stimulator for women and the Nuo is designed as an anal toy both males and females but its design makes it great for prostate stimulation.

Firstly the Je Joue Dua, which has a small resemblance to some other popular toys like the We-Vibe4 and LELO Tiani. It has one section (the larger part) that goes inside the woman’s vagina (for most women it will be positioned on the g-spot) and the smaller, thinner section rests on the clitoris. As for the Je Joue Nuo, it looks more like a bulbous anchor with the shaft of the device to be inserted anally, the Je Joue Nuo is designed to sit right next to the wall of the g-spot or prostate.

Both the Je Joue Dua & Nuo are both designed really well and for majority of women and men’s anatomy it should fit very comfortably. Both of them are very squishy and very flexible as well which helps so much when it comes to positioning and wearing.  Looking at these vibrators without any knowledge on how they work can be intimidating, these certainly are not the type of toys you can pick up and use without reading the instructions but fortunately the Je Joue Dua & Nuo are both very easy to learn how to use once you know how to connect the ‘pen’ remote that comes with the toy. Both toys can be controlled by the ‘pen’ remote that comes with in the box but these toys can also be controlled by the free Je Joue app that you can download onto your phone for your toy.

Je Joue Nuo Prostate Massager
Sex Toy: Je Joue Nuo

Oh My God! And I thought the app for the We-Vibe was amazing, this app has it all, with seven different modes and 5 different intensities on each one and you can control it all with one hand as well. The app is super easy to use and it very intuitive. Connecting the phone and toy is just as easy as it connects automatically to your mobile phone (after you press the “play now” button) as long as you have Bluetooth on and the toy itself on, only downside I can see with this is if you share thin walls and your neighbour connects to your toy that you might of left on……… I know that sounds ridiculous and highly unlikely but I have to try and nit-pick when I can, especially when a toy is this impressive. Ok so to connect the ‘pen’ remote to your toy all you need to do is have your toy charged and on, a battery in the remote and then to just simply hold down the top button on the remote for only 3 seconds or until the blue light comes on, that’s it! It is very simple, once you are connected you can twist the top button to change intensity or click the button to change modes.

Besides the nifty remote and the brilliant app, the Je Joue Dua & Nuo are pack filled with heaps of other obvious and important features. These toys are both USB rechargeable and attaches via eternal magnets to make connecting and disconnecting super easy, the charge ratio is about 1:1 so a full charge of 2 hrs of charge will get you 2 hours of use and one of my favourite feature to be on a sex toy is being 100% deep sea diving compatible which fortunately the Je Joue Dua & Nuo are. Both of these toys have two motors, on the Dua they situated in two separate points and are great for strong stimulation to both the g-spot and clitoris and the two motors on the Je Joue Nuo is fantastic for prostate massaging and even perineum stimulation. The motors are probably average in power for toy of this class but because it has the two motors it is very powerful, power freaks certainly won’t be disappointed. The material on both the Je Joue Dua & Nuo is a very high quality soft silicone that feels amazing to touch and even better when lubricated, for lube its best to stick to high quality water-based products as the majority of silicone and oil based lubricants can ruin the sheen and coating on the silicone and over time render the toy unusable. Cleaning isn’t a worry when it comes to these toys, because they are waterproof you can wash them under warm soapy water or you can use anti-bacterial toy cleaner.

It’s safe and obvious to say that both these toys are amazing and that Je Joue is far better then what I expected it to be, I believe that the price point that they are set at is pretty reasonable and definitely worth buying if the toys suits your anatomy. During research I was noticing a lot of websites were saying that you can only get the app on iOS but that must be outdated because I checked the google play store and it’s available for download and it runs exactly the same as the iOS version that I used when reviewing these toys. So in conclusion these toys deserve a spot in practically everyone’s bedside draw or tool box. The Nuo is an amazing anal toy for both men and woman but because it’s squishy, flexible and its curved shaft makes this a great prostate toy for men. The Je Joue Dua more predominately a females toy is a fantastic choice if you’re looking for a comfortable dual spot vibrator but just keep in mind both these toys are made even better as couples toys.
