Review: Je Joue Mio Cock Ring

You know when you hear a review about a sex toy and you say to yourself “Wow, that is such a good idea! Why on earth didn’t I think of that?” And you feel that your life might be just a little bit better from now on for knowing it . Well that happened to me today when a colleague of mine suggested a Tenga Cock Ring as an alternative waterproof bullet. I mean, for goodness sake! It means you don’t have to hold on to something that is vibrating in your hands. Like a female vibrator for fingering, a lot of the vibrations are absorbed and it is far more of a hands free experience. The We-Vibe Tango is a great bullet and so is the Nu Sensuelle Joie,  but while I love the power of both these sex toys, I don’t want to be vibrating around the room with it. I always tell customers the sex benefits of using these Cock Rings with bullets. But for some reason I didn’t think of it the other way round, using the virtues of a cock ring as an accessory for a girl using a bullet.

Anyway, suffice it to say, I am looking at the cock rings with far more of a selfish interest than I used to. I thought I would do a blog review on the Je Joue Mio Cock Ring.

It is one of the pricier Cock Rings in the sex toy industry and comes packaged as such. Je Joue packaging is quality and generally fairly discreet stylish and unisex . The box is sturdy and perfect for storage, inside the product is displayed on a raised platform.  Alongside it it is a small lidded compartment that holds the charger and instructions. It comes in three sophisticated colours, black, plum and magenta. The body safe silicone is silky smooth. The bulgy vibrating part of the Cock Ring is hard. The ring is really stretchy, tight enough to slightly restrict the blood flow, which is the purpose of a cock ring but stretchy enough to pull your testicles through if you like. Lots of people prefer that for both the feel and visuals. It can be used in couples play with the vibrating bulge contacting the clitoris during sex or for solo play, the bulge can be twisted underneath the penis shaft against the balls.

Je Joue Mio Cock Ring has a magnetic charger (not a USB cord). The magnets are strong enough to maintain contact with out needing to be checked on, which you would think would be a given when creating a charger, but unbelievably some toy manufacturers think you have nothing better to do with your time…I could go on but I am making myself angry. This charger is good anyhow, and once it is fully charged you get 2 hours of play time. The thing I do really like about this charger is that the metal controller buttons double up as the charging contacts.  I have often wondered why this isn’t always the case. Take the We- vibe Nova for instance, everyone who picks that up thinks the charging port is the controller. So top marks for that Je Joue Mio Cock Ring. It is simple to operate, which we love. A plus button for on and increased intensity, a minus button for off and decreased intensity and the small button in the middle with a wavy line for changing vibration patterns (of which there are 5).

The vibrations themselves are ok, there are a couple of lower and slower fairly thuddy settings which I like and could almost be considered rumbly. As the intensity increases it gets buzzier. It certainly belongs in the luxury market, and I actually prefer it to Lelo Tor 2, which is similar in design. I don’t think the vibrations are as good as the Tenga SVR though. It is certainly powerful enough to send vibrations all the way up the penis shaft. What I would say though is, it is quite noisy. It isn’t the decibels it is more the tone, it is one of those toys that sound like they are going to take off every time you push them up a notch. If you pinch the bulge, it quietens down but no one wants to have to do  that.

I would definitely use water based lubricant, although you are supposed to put the ring on before the dick gets really hard, for some, just the thought of the toy makes doing that impossible. The lubricant will be necessary if you want to pull all your bits and pieces through but it also stops your pubes getting all caught up.

Je Joue Mio Cock Ring is 100% waterproof which as well as giving a couple loads of extra play options makes it very easy to clean. A bit of toy cleaner or some warm soapy water and everything is good.

I would just like to end this review with another top tip that a little bird told me this week, that again, I cannot believe I hadn’t thought of myself…. Cock Rings are for dildos too! The shape of the Je Joue Mio Cock Ring is perfect for that. What a brilliant idea. Amazing for a dildo on a harness. So obvious, but I hadn’t thought of it. So yes, Cock Rings are my sex toy of the week.

Review: Screaming O Orbit & Orbit Plus

Screaming O Orbit Sex Toy Image

Looking through our wide range of vibrating cock rings yesterday I found what I think are some cute and very affordable toys for the for the sexy science fiction geek in your life – The Screaming O Orbit & Orbit Plus cock rings.

If you are not familiar with vibrating cock rings, this is the low down. If you or your partner (or both of you) have a dick, vibrating cock rings are one of the most fun – not to mention easiest to use – sex toys. They are brilliant to use together or alone and you can find them in a wide range of prices, from around $15 to around $200, depending on how fancy and durable you would like your toy to be. Cheaper, battery-powered versions are very popular for couples on a budget.

A cock ring is a ring worn around the base of the penis or around both the balls and penis, close to the body as possible. They work by constricting the blood flow to keep an erection harder, larger, and delay orgasm, so when it happens orgasm is stronger and more intense.

They can be made of various materials but the most common, especially for beginner users, is a stretchy silicone. They can also be made from other materials such as steel or leather, but stretchy materials are easier to use for most as they easily fit many sized penises quite comfortably while still constricting enough to stay in place and work effectively. For steel rings, it’s necessary to measure the penis and find the correct fit for the toy to be usable. So stretchy is much more convenient. But there can also be a wide range of levels of stretching even among stretchy rings. So I think it’s always a good idea to test how stretchy the material is before purchasing. Stretch and size combined will help you decide what is the right ring for you or your partner.

Sex Toy: Screaming O Orbit Plus


The Screaming O Orbit & Orbit Plus cock rings are made from a white stretchy silicone material with a fairly high level of stretch. They are also highly reminiscent of sci-fi space ships in their design and packaging, thus the name ‘Orbit’. The packaging pushes the space theme hard in fact and it works rather well. “Three warp speeds and Pulsar Vibration,” it boasts, and it’s also waterproof, just in case it needs to make an emergency landing on an aquatic habitat for sexy times with space mermaids, one presumes.

Now vibrating cock rings differ from regular cock rings in that they also provide stimulation for the wearer and the wearer’s partner by way of a small vibrator, often a ‘bullet’ either inserted into or made as part of the ring. In the case of the orbit the bullet is vertical so if the wearer’s partner has a high clitoris, for example, this will have no problem reaching the right spot. For clitoral stimulation, the idea is to have the ring turned so that the vibrating bullet is sitting on the top side of the penis, close to the body, so that while thrusting and grinding, her clitoris gets lots of hands-free stimulation. Many couples wedge a separate bullet in between them to attempt to achieve this but it can be very easy for the bullet to fall out-of-place and leave everyone frustrated. With a vibrating cock ring you don’t have that problem and also the guy gets a lot more of the vibration on his penis, as the vibrations travel through the ring as well. Now the shape and size of the vibrator on a vibrating cock ring is purely a matter of personal preference and most people will find many shapes work well for them but some do have a distinct preference so it’s something to take into account.

The Orbit has one vibrating bullet, but the Orbit Plus has two. One for her, one for him, as it were. As well as one sitting on top of the base of the penis, another is on the opposite side so it will vibrate against his balls or perineum, depending on how he is wearing the ring. Many guys really love these sensations! If he doesn’t, you always have the option of turning the vibrations on one side off. Versatility is always a good thing in a couples toy, I think.

The Screaming O Orbit & Orbit Plus cock rings are battery-powered toys and you first set come included with the sex toy. These are ag13 (also known as watch batteries), small round batteries that many smaller vibrating toys run off. To change the batteries, you will need to peel back the silicone from the bullet/s, and undo the battery compartment, replace batteries, and then place the bullet back in the silicone covering, rolling/stretching the silicone back into place. This gets quick and easy with practice.

I think Screaming O Orbit & Orbit Plus sex toys are really super cute and light-hearted and should be really popular.

Review: Lux 4 Cock Ring

Lux Penis Ring

After all the reviews I’ve done one different cock rings ranging anywhere from small disposable ones to high end luxury rings, I have never found a cock ring that has made me have such mixed feelings as the Lux 4 Cock Ring. By now I would like to think of myself as bit of a cock ring connoisseur, knowing full well that there is no perfect cock ring for everybody but if you look hard enough you can find the perfect one for you. If you are looking for a strong vibrating and tight premium cocking that has most if not all the features you would want into such a small sex machine then The lux could be your perfect cock ring.

When companies make their cock rings for consumers majority of the time they fall in one of these three categories, for his pleasure, for her pleasure and for erection stamina. The cock rings that try to do all three usually fail to do any adequately but most that are for just one function serve pretty well and do a good job. The Lux 4 Cock Ring claims to provide great erection control and fantastic pleasure for both parties but is that actually possible? If it is then it come close to the most perfect cock ring I’ve seen for most couples.

When I first saw the Lux 4 Cock Ring I was intrigued by its cigar like box and it’s manly looking packaging. It definitely is promoting towards the male market but don’t worry this little toy has something for everybody. In the box you will find you lovely little toy, multiple different adapters for different countries, the sex toys charger and a neat user manual. Even though this toy is very easy to use , the manual is still very useful to learn all the features and if anything dears goes wrong with the toy you have clear instructions on how to claim you 1 year complimentary warranty.

Sex Toy: Lux 4 Cock Rings


The Lux 4 Cock Ring itself is pretty average size for a cock ring but it’s wide shape means more coverage over the clitoris or male testicles depending on the position you have the toy in. So not only is this toys pack filled amazing features like being completely 100% waterproof and usb rechargeable  it also has a really strong motor jammed inside it. The motor has multiple functions and can hit speeds of 10000rpm. The powerful vibrations are controlled by a single push button on the top of the penis ring. Press and hold the button down to climb through the multiple speeds of vibration and simply press the button once to switch the vibrations off. A red LED lights up during use so you can find the operations button with ease.

The ring part of the toy looks pretty small at first but thank goodness is very stretchy, it’s smartly made out of a high grade of silicone and can definitely accommodate the well endowed men. The toys works best with good quality water-based lubrication.

The Lux 4 Cock Ring is very comfortable to wear and also comfortable to receive the pleasure on the woman’s end without any real interference. Unfortunately all woman are different and in some cases the Lux doesn’t always have enough length to reach the clitoris, it’s very dependent on ones anatomy. That in mind, because of the power behind this toy if you have it pressed against the skin firmly then the vibrations can travel to the right spot and send any woman crazy.  The biggest downside to this toy is the price, it’s more so of bummer that many people won’t be able to enjoy such an amazing cock ring purely because it’s out of their price point. Is it worth it though? I think it’s a hard price to sell me at but knowing how powerful it is and having all the features I would want might convinces me, but maybe not some others.

Overall it’s a fantastic cock ring and for many couples it could potentially be their perfect couples sex toy or sex ring in general but unfortunately the price is a little high especially when there are some amazing premium vibe rings that are just as good but are a little cheaper.

Review: Tenga Smart Vibe Cock Ring

Tenga Vibrating Cock Ring

You have wedding rings, engagement rings, love rings, promise rings and many other types. There is no doubt that rings often symbolize commitment and love. Even Beyonce said:

“If you like it, then you should put a ring on it.”

One could say the same goes for the famous cock ring, in my opinion, there aren’t so different. Usually they are bought to spice up an existing relationship and with a cock ring they are generally enjoyed exclusively by the couple who purchased it. The big difference is that cock rings don’t suggest commitment nor do they cost nearly as much.  They don’t just look pretty too, you can have some serious fun with cock rings and is must try for couples at one stage in their sex lives.  Now, when it comes to purchasing a cock ring you are bombarded with countless $15-30 rings and not just that, there are many premium cock rings. Yes, that $20 OVO looks very appealing in price terms and would definitely satisfy a beginner, or someone who is in a casual short term relatonship or someone who isn’t so sold on the idea of vibrating stranglers.  There is fortunately a premium cock ring out there that not only gives balance and options but also can be highly versatile.

Smart Vibe Cock Ring made by adult manufacturer Tenga is a Japanese made cock ring. Tenga Smart Vibe Cock Ring is absolutely stunning in more ways then just a cock ring. The uses for the Tenga Smart Vibe Cock Ring only end with the extent of your imagination but there are many popular sexual ideas about cock rings. The obvious idea is to use it upright as a normal cock ring but you can also invert it to vibrate the clitoris for immense pleasure for females or invert it on the scrotum for immense pleasure for males. It can also be laid flat on top of the penis shaft for added girth and internal vibrations during intercourse and like any other bullet it can be used on vastly different areas of the body, the nipples and perineum are just two examples.

Now the Tenga Smart Vibe Cock Ring itself is overall great, its comfortable and not to tight as it can stretch heaps catering for every size besides blue whales of course, the only downside to this is men who are looking for a very restrictive cock ring might actually find the SVR too comfortable……. The vibrations on the SVR travel very well through the cock ring which will aid in sending more blood to the area creating a harder hard on and make most men perform a lot better then previously before. This is great if you love having a very strong erection and can enhance you naturally to your fullest potential. Speaking of vibrations, Tenga Smart Vibe Cock Ring has 5 different intensity levels so that you have something to work up to. the vibrations are not whiny but rumbly and feels amazing without generating much noise at all. Two patterns are included into the vibration settings which is pretty low compared to some other bullets but in most cases the lack of patterns haven’t been an issue and the two that are included are great picks.

Now most cock rings can be argued that they all double as a woman’s bullet vibe but unlike the SVR, most of their shapes don’t allow for them to be properly inserted or even recommended due quality and safety. This is one the things that make this stand out from being ‘just’ a cock ring, the SVR would have to be hands down one of the best bullets out their to choose from.

For a few dollars more, you don’t just get a cock ring, you get the Tenga Smart Vibe Cock Ring which is a fully waterproof, completely rechargeable, long battery life and a million different sensations and pleasures for you to personally explore with your partner. The Tenga Smart Vibe Ring, the true symbol of love and the only ring you will ever need, just like a wedding ring it will change your sex life……. but for the better this time.
