Take Me On A Wild Ride!

Scary Ride

Today I will be reviewing one of my favourite vibrating dildos that I absolutely love selling in the Oh Zone stores, the Wild Ride by Adam & Eve. I do not own one myself just yet but it definitely will be my next purchase. I must admit a year ago I wasn’t the biggest fan of Adam & Eve toys but this year it seems as if they have stepped up their game. Their products are much more powerful and in my opinion a lot better deigned than they used to be.

Adam & Eve is one of the largest and oldest adult toy seller in the world. Founded in 1971 and now it is 2018 and they not only have stores all over the globe but they also have their own range of adult products. After a bit of extra researching about the company, I came across this bit of information on their website and I think it is something that deserves recognition before talking about this great toy because what the company gives back is important and amazing.

“Giving back to the community is an important part of Adam & Eve’s culture. Employees hold fundraisers throughout the year to support causes from breast cancer research to local animal shelters. And Adam & Eve matches every dollar they raise, while also making significant stand-alone contributions to other charities. One of the largest beneficiaries is DKT International. DKT provides condoms and birth control to millions of men and women in Africa, Asia and Latin America to eliminate the spread of STDs and promote family planning.”

Wild Ride 

The Adam & Eve Wild Ride is one of the most powerful vibrating dildos I’ve seen in our stores. Usually the vibrating dildos take a AA battery and only offers speed with a dial at the base of the toy and that’s where you can mainly feel most of the vibrations rather than the whole toy vibrating evenly. Wild Ride is rechargeable with a powerful buzzy motor, I usually prefer rumbly motors but because it is really powerful it makes up for it. You have 3 constant speeds and 5 different patterns to choose from, but what makes the wild ride unique to the rest is the power boost setting that it offers. Power boost basically takes the all the power it possibly can from the motor and gives it all to you for 10 seconds, the power boost setting has it’s own button that you can press between any setting. The power button will take you through the 3 speeds and then into the settings and the lightning button above is the power boost button.

Wild Ride is made of a soft high grade silicone so make sure to only use water based lubricants with this one. It will not feel realistic but it does have the realistic look to it, the only downside (to me) is that it only comes in a hot pink so it definitely doesn’t look super realistic. I was surprised by how flexible and squishy the toy is though considering the motor is inside the middle of it, I think this is great because I have had solid dildos in the past and they tend to become quite uncomfortable after only a short amount of time. Being flexible means the dildo will move with the body which makes it a whole lot more pleasurable.  Wild Ride is 7.5″ long with 7″ being insertable and 1.74″ wide.

It has a suction base for solo play and is harness compatible for couples play. Make sure to clean your toy in between sharing if you are using it for couples play. When using it for solo play, you need to have a flat surface for it to suction properly. The suction base is quite impressive compared to others that I have seen in the past.

Charging 

To charge your Wild Ride, Adam & Eve have supplied the charging cord that you will pierce into the small hole near the base of the toy. It is marked DC underneath the circled section to help you find the spot. Make sure to plug the other end into a wall adaptor rather than a computer for proper charging. The toy will show you a light flashing when charging and will go to a still when complete. Wild Ride takes 2 hours to completely charge and offers up to 90 minutes of play.

Waterproof

The Wild Ride is 100% waterproof for all your shower and bath time fun! It is fully submersible so no need to stress about using it in the bath. Waterproof also means for easy cleaning. Spray your toy down with some trusty toy cleaner, let it sit for a few minutes and wash off with some warm water.

WARNING: Because this product has a motor inside of it you can NOT use boiling water to sanitize.

Warranty 

Adam & Eve offers a 5 year manufacturing warranty.

Are We Able To Stop This UPRIZE?

Large dildos

PEOPLE THE UPRIZE IS A MONTH AWAY FROM BEING AVAILABLE AND I’M WAY BEYOND TOO EXCITED TO WAIT TO TALK ABOUT!

This review is brought to you by a big dyke that hated dildos before working in an adult shop, but now has seen the light and owns too many to count. The first year of me working for Oh Zone I was only purchasing the dildos that looked the least like a penis as possible. Two years later and the majority of my collection now looks as lifelike as possible. Over the past two years, I have discovered a lot about myself and the things I am into when it comes to sex. I still haven’t worked it all out and there is still a lot of confusion that I have when it comes to my gender, but right now I am beyond happy to be a woman in 2018 with a product that is about to be released that gives me the option of having a penis that erects! Yes you read that correctly, the dildo erects and my big gay heart is exploding with joy because I finally get to experience having a proper hard-on!

This is the first erecting dildo so there definitely are some imperfections that I will talk about but first I am going to boast about all the great things that made me want to talk about it straight away.

The Uprize is a high-grade silicone, rechargeable dildo that can either be controlled via the two buttons on the side of the toy or with the wireless remote that it comes with. Silicone toys can not be used with silicone lubricant as it destorys the material. Make sure to purchase yourself some good quality, water-based lubricant if you do not already own some to use with the Uprize.

It has a suction base for solo play but it is also harness compatible for partner play. Love Honey has released an Uprize Harness that you can purchase separately but I have not seen it yet so I can’t give you a review on that aspect.

This awesome product doesn’t just erect, it also vibrates and there are 10 different vibration modes to choose from. When using the wireless remote, to make the dildo go from flacid to hard it only takes one click of the middle button. The other two buttons will allow you to control your vibration functions.

So far there will be two sizes available, a 6 inch and an 8 inch. You will also be able to purchase either of these sizes in three different colors, purple, black and nude.

The Uprize is 100% waterproof for some bathroom fun and I am pretty damn excited about that! Not quite sure how well it works for everyone else but being a lesbian and attempting to have sex in the shower is a very big struggle. I love it but it usually just ends in cramps some good laughs. Thinking about it now I’ve never tried using a strap on in the shower but this toy now makes me want to give it a shot. Waterproof also means it is super easy to keep clean! Toy cleaner and some warm water is the best way to keep your toys clean.

Flexible Dildo
Moving Dildo

As I said before there are some imperfections, but this is just my opinion so these may not be imperfections for you. The motor could be a lot quieter, as soon as you go past the first vibration setting it does get quite loud. When I squeezed the toy it didn’t sound as loud though so I’d recommend inserting it first before turning on vibrations if you live with people. Also, when it erects it isn’t super loud, but there is a noise that sounds like a plane taking off when it moves. For me, I want the most realistic experience and that is something that would put me off a bit.

It is quite heavy so I’m not sure how great it is going to be with certain harnesses. I’d probably recommend getting a harness with thicker straps and that has both waist and leg straps for extra support.

It could also definitely be a bit more realistic but like I said before, I know it is the first of its kind so I am sure they will only get better with time.

WARNING

This product is way too chunky to be used as a packer unless you are into having a super huge bulge, if that is the case then you should definitely go for it! I will warn you now though, I would not try making the toy go hard underneath pants or underwear as you may end up breaking the motor and this is not covered by warranty.

The Uprize comes with a 1-year manufacturing warranty.

You Put What In Your Vagina?

Woman in panties

I love modern technology. More specifically, I love the technology that allows me to search the strange, dark depths of humanity (AKA Google). Human beings manage to do some incredibly bizarre things to their bodies, with their posting about it online giving me an opportunity to amuse myself for hours on end.  Recently, I came across a forum detailing the strangest things women have put in their vaginas! It may seem like an odd subject to research however my curiosity was great and found me on some interesting websites where I read some freaky and crazy stories. I felt this information was too shocking not to share so below is a list of some of the things women have either placed or had placed in their womanly parts:

Popsicles and ice blocks

These people must not be aware that their vaginas are not equipped with taste buds. Sugary sweets like this can seriously mess up the pH balance of the vagina. If you’re ever seeking that cool sensation, I suggest you put a glass dildo in the fridge instead!

Bike reflector

I don’t know what kind of hazards they were seeking to avoid but this is just confusing.

Phone and money

A man put these objects in his girlfriend’s vagina after they had sex. Don’t even get me started on how dirty money is let alone the ridiculousness of placing a phone in such a precious body part.

Money used for sex

Pork Loin wrapped in condoms

I felt strange reading that one. She really needs to invest in a real feel dildo instead of using a piece of dead pig to get off!! All I can say is, at least she covered it with a condom.

Clay

I think this woman needs to get herself a Clone-A-Pussy kit if she really wants to replicate her pussy.

Different vagina types

Bottle cap

Now, I’m not sure if this woman was successful at opening a bottle with her vagina or if she just felt she had nowhere else to throw it out. Nonetheless, this is not recommended.

Glow stick

There’s certainly a party in this woman’s pants…

A piece of rusty metal

Has this woman not heard of tetanus?! I really think she needs to come into the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres to pick herself a clean, polished surgical steel dildo if she’s really into this.

What is perfectly health to place in your vagina?

Ok so now you know what isn’t a great idea to put in your vagina, I thought I’d make it crystal clear what is perfectly healthy to place in your precious body part.

Fingers

Self-pleasuring with your hands or having a lover do it for you is one of the greatest gifts a woman can bestow upon her vagina. Ensuring whoever’s hands come near your genitals are squeaky clean will ensure the experience is memorable for all the right reasons.

Fruits and vegetables

Phallic shaped fruits and veggies are a hit among many women. Bananas, cucumbers, carrots, zucchinis-these are perfectly healthy to have in your vagina, just be sure to place a condom over them before use (Oh and keep the banana skin on).

Penis

This one is probably way too obvious as of course this is how children are conceived. Sexual intercourse makes many women’s vaginas feel ecstatic and blissful so feel free to keep this one on the to do list. Just be sure when having penile/vaginal intercourse with someone, it is important to be aware of both parties’ sexual health statuses. Using condoms is great however it does not protect against all sexually transmitted infections.

Sex toys, dildos, dongs, vibrators and more

The variety of different sex toys on the market is ginormous. Ensuring you use high quality sex toys made from materials such as silicone, ABS, glass and steel will ensure your vagina stays healthy and happy. I certainly recommend brands such as The Rabbit Company, Fun Factory, We-Vibe and LELO if you’re after a toy that your vagina will love and appreciate.

Kegel exercisers

To ensure your vagina stays toned and terrific, completing Kegel exercises regularly is highly recommended. Like with sex toys, I certainly recommend only using Kegel balls and exercisers made from high quality silicone or ABS plastic. Kegel exercisers such as Elvie, LELO Luna Beads, Je Joue Ami and We-Vibe Bloom are some amazing products worth investing in.

Ok so this next one is still on the drawing table, with more research needed to ascertain whether it’s a healthy thing to put in one’s vagina.

Metal chain

This is one I’ve only just recently become aware of and I am yet to find out the appeal but it is certainly featuring in my fantasies as of late. A length of ¼ inch link metal chain about 2 feet is placed slowly into the vagina. Think putting it in to create a feeling of fullness and heaviness then pulling it out link by link, almost like you would with anal beads. Some recounts of this make it sound like a mind-blowing experience but like I said, I am yet to know for sure as to whether it is a good idea. So if you’re reading this thinking it sounds like a good idea, best to keep it as a fantasy and do your own research on mastering the art of fingering.

Trending Sex Toy Facts Of Australia!

Australian Sex Toy

Australian’s are an oversexed bunch.

And when it comes to toys of any description they like to spend.  In recent research conducted by Purposit (A Child Gifting App For Parents) it revealed that parents of the nuclear family (2 parents – 2.4 children) on average spend $1000 a month on non-necessary items – mainly being children’s toys.  So it brings to question how much and what do those same parents spend on sex toys for themselves.

So some extensive analysis from the data bases of one of Australia’s largest online sex toy retailer adultsmart reveal a few facts and figures indicating what the most popular sex toys being purchased were, where they were purchased and the biggest spends.  So on a per capita basis (per 1000) state by state for the year of 2017 the *#biggest consumers of sex toys in Australia believe it or not is

WINNER IS – TASMANIA with 4.1 persons (per 1000) purchasing sex toys.

Thereafter in order were Queensland, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, Victoria, Adelaide, South Australia, Northern Territory* and Western Australia*.

These are interesting stats but when broken up further statistics as to the best-selling sex toy online it comes down to the humble cock ring.  Across all states this was the most sought after item used to enhance the residents downunder intimate lives.  State by state these were the top three adult products purchased online –

These days there is no stigma attached to buying, owning or using pleasure objects is accepted in most walks of life.  According to a study conducted by Arizona University more than 90% of men have used a sex toy on themselves or their partner and over 80% of women own a vibrator.  A recent survey on women’s vibrator use found –

  • 17% were under 20 years of age when they initially attempted a vibrator, or sexual toy
  • 50% were in their 20s
  • 22% to 27% were in their 30s
  • 11% were 40 and more

You May BCurious About BSwish!

Sex Toys

My BCurious came to me fully charged, which is an absolutely great feeling when you can take it out of the packaging and use it immediately. When you really need to use a vibrator, and having to wait for a sex toy to charge up can be very annoying. However if you do need to charge the toy, it is very easy to do and to make things even more clear it comes with an instruction manual.   Simply take the small cap off and push the plug in using the usb cord supplied.  When the cord is in and the toy is charging a flicking light will be seen on the controls and when it is fully charged the light will remain on.  The instructions say never leaving it charging for more than 24 hours at a time.

There is a warning on the box to not use the toy in temperatures over 140 degrees Fahrenheit so it will not be suitable for use in the sauna but as it is waterproof would still be great in the shower or bath – just not too hot okay!  Not that you ever would but I guess that also means you do not leave it in your car on a hot summers day.

The controls have an oblong face and the controls are clearly defined and easy to use even amidst sexual play.  You can simply scroll up and down the many vibrating setting until you find the one that you want.  When in use I found my thumb to change settings and it is a perfect ergonomic shape when the curved tip is pointing towards your body.  The first control is to power on and off and the other takes you through the different settings and they are very comfortable to use.

When switched on the surround of the controls is illuminated in a blue light so if you drop it during your passion play it will be easy to find under the sheets.  It is a toy that can easily be used for solo play or with your partner.  There are 7 vibration settings which is more than ample for any sex toy user.  The vibrations are strong but not overly so and give a nice deep rumbly experience.

I believe this toy would be perfect for beginners or for those that like a nice sensual and romantic night in.  It is not for those that like powerful sex toys or those that will make them orgasm in a minute.  I like it just the way it is and give it a 7.5 out of 10.
