C-Rings From MixJoy

For those wishing to create their own product lines cheaply they offer an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and ODM service to make this option both affordable and accessible.  This will enable businesses to on-sell private label and custom items that will be unique for their business giving them a ‘market edge.’

Their team of designers is ready to assist businesses with ‘new concept’ toys to design and create proto-types making original ideas and thoughts into reality.  MixJoy is there to develop long-term relationships with cutting edge companies.  Chris Wang the director and new business development officer at MixJoy is ready to embark on new entrepreneurial endeavors now.

We were lucky enough to be sent a sample of the new MixJoy Ultimate silicone cock rings with a dual action bullet featuring 10 vibrating functions.  This super stretchy C-Ring for couples and men is made from medical grade silicone and the bullet from ABS Plastic.  Both are body safe, smooth to the touch and with the two bunny (clit stim) ears ready to please.

Dual rings are used to encompass both the shaft of the penis and the testicles causing restriction of blood flow that will enhance male sexual performance.  This occurs as the restriction will cause the blood to flow back into the body from the penis once an erection is formed allowing for a more ‘full’ harder and erect penis.  It will also stem the flow of ejaculation delaying orgasm and when orgasm is achieved create a ‘spurting’ and satisfying climax.

The rings are ringed, whilst the ends where the bullets are encased have raised nodules all designed to increase stimulation to the sexual partner.  The top end also has clit stimulation to enhance sexual enjoyment for females during sex.  Both bullets are powered by LR44 batteries (included) and a single button powers it on and the user can then simply press the button to scroll through the 10 different vibration speeds and modes.  The bullet is fully waterproof so the C-Ring can be worn in the bath or shower for some extra wet fun!!!

The box that the cock ring arrived in was very pretty with the picture of the product on the front.  The cock ring is available in black, teal, blue, purple and rose.  The black was ticked on the box and on opening this was the color we received.  Grabbing hold of it, the silicone felt smooth and nice to the touch and stretching the rings confirmed that they would fit the most well-endowed of men.

The bullets had to be removed from the upper and lower casing to remove the paper shield protecting the batteries. Turning them on was as simple as a push of a button and then easily scrolling through the 10 speed and modes.  When the 11th click was made the bullet turned off and again switching it on was a simple click of the button.

The cock ring was then put on – the smaller ring down the shaft and the larger ring constricting the testicles.  Turning the bullets on I scrolled through the vibration modes.  Personally I found the vibration around the testicle too much and had to set it at the lowest vibration mode for it to be comfortable.  The C-Ring fit great and I cannot wait to try it in the sack!  The only downside I can see to it is that you should ensure that you select your setting right before you start having sex and it would be difficult and time consuming to change setting whilst having coitus.

Being silicone and I assuming the ring can only be used with water-based lubricants as there were no warning of such on the box.  I gave a liberal covering of lube on them, switched the vibe on and dropped the toy in some luke warm water in my sink.  About half an hour later it was still vibrating merrily so we can confirm that it is in fact waterproof and that give and added dimension of pleasure available to the user.

All in all I would rate this wonderful sex toy a 7 out of 10.  The main reason it is not higher is that it will be inconvenient to change modes and vibration speeds whilst in the act.  They have just finished production and should be available at the best adult shops in September of 2018 for a retail price of $24.99.

Feel Nu And Sensuelle With Homme Ace!

Ace of Spades

Nu Sensuelle by Novel Creations is a brand that was started back in 2009 by Barry Brinberg and his wife Thao. They moved from Canada down to Australia to start up an Adult Toy brand that ended up on the shelves in stores all around the world by 2010. After only being on the US market for 3 months they proved that their products were as great as they looked by winning the XBIZ ‘Powered’ product of the year for the Sensuelle Impulse. Nu has a great range of products for everybody, from cockrings, butt plugs, clitoral vibes, g-spot vibes and more.

As a sales assistant in the Oh Zone stores, Nu Sensuelle to me has always been that go to brand if someone can’t quite afford the luxury brands eg. Lelo, Fun Factory, We-Vibe, Coco De Mer etc, but still want an upgrade from their battery operated toys. As soon as I’ve placed a Nu product in a customer’s hands to feel the motors they are usually blown away by how strong they are and go for it straight away. I also have a few products of theirs myself and I can’t say I’ve ever been disappointed.

Here is a list of all the great things this brand has to offer!

  • All Nu Sensuelle products are under $100 – AFORDABLE!
  • Rechargeable – No more stealing batteries from the tv remote!
  • Strong motors with multiple speeds and patterns to chose from
  • 100% waterproof/submersible
  • Made with high-grade silicone and Phthalate free
  • Storage bags are always included
  • All products come with a 1-year warranty

 

Now, before I tell you about the two new and fantastic products Aimii and Ace let me just have a quick unhappy rant about the fact that they are the exact same product in two different types of packaging and colors for both men and woman. I’m not blaming the brand because honestly, it is smart marketing for our unfortunate close-minded society. It is 2018 god damn it! A company should not have to go through the efforts of creating two boxes because someone is unhappy with it not saying

“for men or for a woman.”

Here are two different examples of what I mean by this. I had a customer come into the store for nipple clamps one day and I showed him a few options, one being a box with a male torso on it. He then turned to me and said: “No, I want nipple clamps for women….” SERIOUSLY??????

Another example which has happened multiple times over the 2 years I have worked here would be when 2 men come into the store to purchase a dildo as a funny gift they will felt the need to inform me….. Before walking over to the dildo wall and letting me know that they are in fact not gay or a couple. (I’ve never had this happen when 2 women have come in looking for a vibrator). It is pretty clear that I am a lesbian so they are either trying to make a sly homophobic comment or they honestly feel like they are going to be judged which I would never do.  Perhpas they are trying to make themselves feel better because they have huge male egos and think “I can’t have something in my butt because that would be gay.” (Can not tell you how many times I have heard this comment).

The sad thing is even if they had just put on the one package “G-spot and/or Prostate Massager” some men and woman still probably wouldn’t be happy with it… I could go on and on forever about this but I won’t. Rant over.

G-Spot Massager
P-Spot Massager

Aimii and Ace

Nu have recently started to bring out products that are flexible and let me just say they are doing an amazing job at it. The difference though with these 2 compared to the rest is that instead of just having one motor Aimii and Ace have two! Not buzzy but super rumbly and powerful! They both have 5 speeds and 10 patterns to choose from. Both thin and long with a nice solid curve at the end to hit either the g-spot or prostate. Everyone who speaks to me about toys knows that I am a massive fan of high-grade silicone, not only for the body safe aspects but because they are really nice to touch! Because these products are made of silicone you must not use any silicone lubricant with them unless you want to destroy the material. Also, if you are purchasing the product to share with a partner make sure to grab some trusty toy cleaner, I recommend wet stuff because it is anti bacterial and anti fungal.

FUN FACT:

If a male massages his prostate he is decreasing his chances of having prostate cancer.

Ace only comes in the color black and Aimii comes in both pink and purple. Both are completely submersible into the water for all of you who like a little fun in the bath or shower.

If you are to come into any of our 3 Adult Lifestyle stores make sure to ask one of our friendly staff members to show you the tester of these amazing products so you can have a feel of how impressive these products actually are!

Be safe and enjoy ❤

Flip From Zero To Hero With Tenga

Orgasming with Tenga masturbators

So, I must admit when I was told I was going to receive the new Tenga Black Flip Zero (0) I thought to myself “how an earth am I going to do this?” I don’t have a penis and this is a masturbator for guys! I was sort of freaking out trying to work how I was going to write this review on something that I cannot use on myself and without it sounding like a high school essay where I inform you about all the material components that will inevitably bore you to death.

And don’t worry I can hear your thoughts already and I completely get it, reading a review from a girl about a men’s adult toy is hard because well I don’t have a penis so obviously one would assume I’m spinning wild and amazing loads of bullsh*t in order to tell you how amazing this product is for guys.

Truth is I love Tenga as a brand and I love selling this brand, I will tell every male customer that walks into this shop that they need one in their life! I have three favourite brands in this shop and it’s not because of how popular they are or how they feel it’s because of how much effort, thought and consideration they put into their products!

Unlike its counter partners Tenga uses stimulation that has been researched thoroughly, usually when I am comparing brands to customers I explain that the others are basically made to look like a vagina on the outside with some bumps in a long hole on the inside. More effort and thought are put into how realistic the outside is rather than the feeling and stimulation of the inside, which is the part that matters.

Upon opening this product, I have to admit I got penis envy, the black just makes this toy ooze sex appeal. The matte black is so sophisticated and alluring, and the fact it has the semi translucent components means you really get a good visual of the action going on inside. First thing I did was stick my fingers in it… yes it only heightens my penis envy as I couldn’t experience the entire length of the device. So as any mature person of my age would do, I squeezed down on the pressure pads causing the internal vacuum technology to create an interesting sound which one could only describe as penis envy pleasure. The vacuum pressure inside would be incredible, and as a bonus feature the way that this is designed is with minimal leakage of lube due to its seamless insertion.

After I had my fun with that I began to read the instructions now all I can say is god damn! They really went all out with this design, and men think women get all the fun toys pfft. The internals of this device blow my mind. Each and every nook and cranny is designed to heighten pleasure and the ultimate over all experience.

Check out the internal structures of the Tenga Flip Zero Black Edition!

What’s inside the Tenga Flip Zero Black Edition package?

Now for some information to bore you for a bit, don’t worry I’ll be quick! In order for me to give you the full experience of this review I need to explain what Tenga does differently and what comes in this tight and neatly packed package. So what do you get in this delightfully delish package (no pun intended) and what are the features of the Tenga Flip Zero Black Edition.

Tenga boasts this device is bursting with stronger sensation and I can see why! They have used firmer materials in the Black Edition compared to the Flip Zero White, they have described the internals as being a new structure that provides stronger stimulation and bolder details, which also means the stronger materials provide maximum squeeze and suction within the device. For a comparison, be sure to read our Tenga Flip Zero product review. Also, as with the original Flip Zero the seamless insertion point is the reason why the suction is so strong, and it also reduces lubricant leakage. The stand out feature of the Tenga Flip Zero and Flip Hole ranges are the flip style design which makes washing and drying a breeze, and a very cool feature I noticed when opening up the Tenga Flip Zero Black was that the base was magnetic, so it doesn’t just balance it has a firm attachment while drying out!

What materials are used in the Flip Zero

  • Case and Slide Cap: PC
  • Internal sleeve: Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE)
  • Pressure pad and transport anchor ring: Silicone
  • User manual holder: GPPS

How should I wash the Flip Zero?

  1. Remove the Slide Arms and flip the item open.
  2. Wash under running lukewarm water.
  3. Place on the Slide Arms to air dry.
  4. Once completely dry, close and replace Slide Arms for storage.

 Warnings

  • Wash with cold or tepid water.
  • Use only neutral or mild soap. Soaps high in acid or alkaline content may damage product material.
  • Do NOT wash with alcohol or other cleaners.
  • Please ensure the product is completely clean and dry before storing to help avoid mould and other build-up.

What is the different between the Flip Zero and the Black Edition?

Firmer materials inside and new internal details are the biggest stand out and difference between the two models. The Flip Zero Black is designed to provide stronger suction and more intense stimulation.

So, weather you’re a guy looking for a new masturbation device that is more personalised and has more stimulation, or you’re a partner wanting to buy a new present to spice up your love life look no further! Because contrary to popular belief it’s incredibly fun to add this kind of device into your usual sex routine, guys deserve wild amounts of stimulation and pleasure as well and guess what? If it used regularly it will also increase stamina and there are no complaints with that advantage!

The NEW Tenga Flip Zero Black Edition will definitely not disappoint! This is definitely my most favourite male masturbation device to sell and recommend to customers and it’s not hard to see why!

I don’t last  more than 2 minutes in bed.  How can I last longer?

 Premature or early ejaculation is when you are either letting it all out 1-2 minutes or less after the start of intercourse or that you ejaculate faster than you would like. What is normal?  How long are you supposed to last? These are commons questions and concerns that many men have.  Studies have shown that most men ejaculate 3-5 minutes after penetration. There are a couple of ways you can work at improving the ability to last longer.  One is the squeeze technique by Masters & Johnson.

When you are erect, squeeze the tip of the penis where the skin joins with the tip of the penis (frenulum). Use your thumb to squeeze the frenulum against your index finger. The squeeze should last about 10-15 seconds but make sure not to squeeze too hard where it becomes painful. For this technique to work, you need to be able to feel that you are approaching the point of no return, the point beyond which you can’t control ejaculation. When you are about to reach that point, you or your partner can squeeze and then start again.

The next technique is the stop-start method.  You can do this one alone if you want to practice without your partner but it is something that is also helpful to do with your partner once you can perfect it on your own.  Once you become stimulated, before you hit the point of no return, stop what you are doing, rest for 30-60 seconds and then start stimulating again but don’t allow yourself to get to that point of inevitability. Repeat this cycle 5-6 times before allowing yourself to ejaculate.  If you are by yourself, you can finish by masturbating or if with a partner you can have penetrative intercourse and allow yourself to finish.  There are a few ways you can masturbate to practice on your own by going from using a dry hand (being gentle), then a wet hand with some sort of lotion or lube and then work your way to intercourse.

These are a couple ideas to help with early ejaculation but you can also look up Kegel exercises online which help strengthen the muscles in the pelvis to be able to control the urge to ejaculate easier. There may be more to your situation if you have a partner that is not helpful, rushing you to finish or is not open sexually so if these ideas don’t work and you need some coaching to look deeper into your situation as to what is going on, please contact me at www.DrStacy.org

Are urethral sounds safe to use?

First thing to know…what exactly is a urethral sound? It is a device made to enter the urethra for medical purposes or for sexual play. They can be hard or soft and usually inserted halfway into the opening of the penis so they can be easily retrieved. Some items, such as catheters, can be put in deeper to penetrate the bladder so depending on what the person is looking for, there is something for both. There are two reasons someone may want to use a urethral sound. One is for physical benefits and one is for the physiological turn on.  The urethra has sensitive nerve endings inside which can be stimulated when the sound is used and if you go deep enough with the sound in the penis you may have the ability to do a prostate massage.

Urethral sounding does come with risks.  If using toys specifically for that purpose and used correctly it can be safe since they are designed specifically for the purpose of sexual play and to not hurt but if using something not made for sounding you risk infection, bleeding and pain.  Get something high quality, use a sterile lube and go slow.  If you don’t have patience you can cause damage so it is important that if you want to try urethral sounding that you take your time and get the right products.

Super Charging An Erection With Hot Octopuss

Hot Octopuss sex toy

In 2013 two best friends named Adam and Jules released the first ever “Guybrator” The Pulse. Over the past few years, the London based company has won multiple Xbiz awards for best male product, best couples toy and best boutique pleasure brand. Hot Octopuss’s luxury sex toy designs for the Pulse range now sell out all around the globe.

This year they have released two new cock rings called the Atom and the Atom/plus. After having a feel of the Atom/plus tester we had on display in our Caringbah Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centre, I am super impressed by this product and I wouldn’t be surprised if they become our new bestselling cock rings.

Unboxing

When you open up your new toy you will find a charging cord, an information manual, and a storage bag. All the basics that you would need to know are listed on the side of the box. I honestly think that they could have done a little bit more with their packaging and provided a better storage case. When you’re spending $100+ on a luxury toy I think companies should be providing a hard carry case rather than a thin bag. Maybe I am expecting too much…

Image: A Hot Octopuss recharging

Charging

To charge, both toys have a section just underneath the plus sign that you pierce your charging cord into. The USB side of the charger needs to be plugged into a wall dock. If you start charging your toys through a computer you’ll find that they won’t charge up properly, so best to always charge your toys with a wall dock and the products original cord. You will see a flashing light indicating that your toy is charging and the light will stay solid when fully charged.

The only downside I have found with these toys is the charging and running time. They should take up to 2 hours to completely charge up and you’ll have up to 40 minutes of play depending on what settings you are using. I mean it could be worse but it could also be a lot better!

 

Atom & Atom/Plus

These luxury products are both made of high grade, body-safe silicone and the buttons are made of ABS. When using silicone toys make sure not to use any silicone lubricants with them otherwise you will end up destroying the material. Both toys have 5 powerful, rumbly constant speed vibrations and 5 patterns that you can increase and decrease. I’m super impressed with how strong these toys actually are and I love that they are rumbly rather than just buzzy like most other cock rings. Also considering how strong they are they are both really quiet products. Atom has a single motor at the top of the toy. Atom/Plus has two motors, one at the top and another at the bottom which makes it the more powerful one out of the two products. Because they are both so damn strong you can still feel the vibrations around the bands of the toys which means you do not have parts of the skin being left out without stimulation.

Wearing a cock ring

I have attached a photo above to help anyone who doesn’t know where the cock rings should be placed. If you need more information, read a guide on how to use cock rings. The Atom can either be where the photo shows it or you could turn it so that the motor is sitting downwards depending on personal preference. The Atom/Plus should have the bigger side on top and the smaller side underneath for a more comfortable fit.

Both can be used for single or couples play.

Make sure to clean your toy every time after use with some trusty toy cleaner!

Waterproof cock ring

Waterproof

Both the Atom and the Atom/Plus are completely waterproof which makes it an easy and a much less stressful cleaning process. And yes, they are bath and shower friendly! When using products in the shower make sure to be a little bit more careful, no one wants to be shocked by a powerful vibration, end up slipping over and getting hurt. I’d suggest having a look at our Shower Sex products, they have some awesome stuff to help you out with having the safest shower sex experience you’ll never forget… because you didn’t fall over and end up with a concussion 😝
