Harness [AtoZChallenge/Product Review]

Thanks to Topcotoyz I was able to test out a complimentary TLC Eve’s Harness Strap-on Kit so that I can write my honest opinion about the product.TLC Eve's Harness Strap-on Kit

I have wanted a strap-on harness for a few years now. The kit came with one harness and two dildos of different sizes. One realistic flesh color 7 insertable inch dong with 1.5″ inch girth and the other is a purple translucent 6 insertable inch slimline dong with 1.1 inch girth. The harness is made of a material that resembles leather, but it is not leather. There are layers of fabric glued and stitched together. The harness was huge enough to accommodate up to 49 inches around the waist.

What I did not like about the TLC Eve’s Harness Strap-on Kit:

  • When I opened the harness kit I could immediately smell a hint of silicone. It almost smelled like paint. Taking out the two dongs for the plastic case, each one felt kind of sticky in my hands. I washed them and that it didn’t work. Still sticky when they dried out.
  • The harness was too huge around the waist. I had to make a hole in the harness so that it would fit more comfortable.
  • The slit type opening that is in the crotch area of the harness was not lined up with my body. I didn’t like the way it felt against my skin. I didn’t like the opening at all, it wasn’t comfortable for me.
  • The harness itself seemed cheaply assembled. You can look at the photos and see that there are layers of material that are glued together and cheaply stitched together. (See Photo)
  • The area that secures the dong into the O hole/ring has already torn apart after the second use. Not sure if it is because the dong might be heavy but when I tried to pull the Velcro tab open it to release the dong the tab tore. (see photo).
  • The dongs do attract hair, dirt, dust and general debris and even after suggested cleaning of anti-bacterial soap the dongs are sticky & may attract debris.
  • Price for this harness kit is $37.00. My personal opinion is that this is a bit pricy for the quality of the harness.
  • The harness doesn’t look like it should be washed. That means that it can only be wiped off. Not sure I like that. The inside of the harness is a soft smooth felt material. The outer side is a leather type material.

What I did like about the TLC Eve’s Harness Strap-on Kit:

  • This harness gave me the opportunity to experiment with strap-ons.
  • I did like the idea that there are TWO different size dongs. Especially when using a strap-on for the first time.
  • The harness was large enough for most people. Up to 49 inches which like I mentioned I had to punch a few extra holes for the harness to fit my properly.

I recommend this to my friends?

No. I would suggest to spend the extra money and get something more durable, long-lasting and possibly with non-toxic dongs. Out of all the sex toys I received complimentary for my review process this one is one that I am really disappointed in the quality.

I like being able to use this strap-on for photos.

Eve After Dark G-spot Vibe (Crimson) [Product Review]

I have recently played with my new Eve After Dark G-spot Vibe. It was a pleasurable adult novelty.  The Eve After Dark G-spot Vibe was provided by Topcotoyz.comEve After Dark G-spot Vibe

Sure it’s a beautiful metallic crimson color. It’s slick, smooth and slender with a bulbous head designed to stimulate your g-spot or any other part of you that you may wanna stimulate. There is a lot of vibration, that travels up into my hand while I was using it.

The Eve After Dark G-spot Vibe is about 8 inches long with 7 insertable inches. It is bent at a slight angle right before the bulbous head. I have had experiences with slighted bigger heads than this vibe. I took a photo so that you can get an idea of the size of the head on this g-spot vibe.

What I did not like about the Eve After Dark G-spot Vibe:

  • That its battery operated. 2 AA batteries are required.
  • Its has twist on/off control. This can be a bit awkward. Trying to twist the cap when I was trying to turn up the vibration.
  • The vibration seemed to echo in to my hand the more I turned up the power.
  • The vibration level fell just below the intensity level that I prefer. It’s strong, but just not strong enough (if I needed it).
  • Not sure I would buy this based on the price of almost $21.00

What I did like about the Eve After Dark G-spot Vibe:

  • It’s waterproof. It has a clear rubber ring that seals the body and the cap that holds in the batteries.
  • It’s a beautiful metallic crimson color.
  • The battery life is still better than some other battery operated vibrators I’ve used in the past.

I was not really impressed with this g-spot vibrator. Sure, it got me off. However, the vibration level fell a bit short of my expectations. I would have liked to have the vibration level amped up just a little more. Even if I don’t go that high, it would be nice to have the option. I didn’t like that it’s battery operated, because batteries are expensive. Batteries don’t seem to last very long anymore. The are so many more options for USB rechargeable vibrators that would cost a few dollars more that would probably make you more orgasmic than this Eve After Dark G-spot Vibe.

Japanese Silk Love Rope Ball Gag [Review]

I recently received the Japanese Silk Love Rope Ball Gag from Topcotoyz.com to test out Japanese Silk Love Ropse Ball Gagand review. I have been an affiliate with them for a few months. It is a small company with limited selection. However, the Affiliate Coordinator is very friendly & helpful. She’s quick to response as well.

The first thing I noticed about this product is that when I opened it I could smell the rubber. It smelled like one of those Dollar Store Super Rubber Balls in the toy section. I washed it, with hot soapy water. Wiped it off with some alcohol and washed it again. Didn’t help. The ball gag still smelled like a rubber bouncy ball.

I tried wiping it dry with a towel, that’s when I noticed that any loose towel fuzz ended up on the ball gag. It’s difficult to keep the ball free from debris.

Japanese Silk Love Rope Ball Gag
What I did not like about the Japanese Silk Love Rope Ball Gag:

  • The rubber smell and taste the ball had.
  • It was difficult to keep the ball clean from debris.
  • The corners of my mouth were pinched by the rope & the ball. The hole that the rope passes through the ball would actually catch the corners of my mouth.
  • The fit. I had to tighten the rope almost to the end of the rope. It just didn’t feel as comfortable as I had expected it to fit.
  • The seam of the ball is rough, it started to crumble around the hole.



 

What I did like about the Japanese Silk Love Rope Ball Gag:

  • This product came with a small booklet about Japanese Rope Bondage. This includes very brief and general information on rope bondage.
  • The ball itself fit fine in my mouth. Wasn’t too big or too small.
  • The clasp was very easy to use for quick take off.
  • The braided rope is nylon, it’s not rough however I did experience some slight irritation to the corners of my mouth after use.
  • Easy to adjust.
  • The price is reasonable. Keep in mind you get what you paid for.
  • It does come in purple & black.

Would I recommend the Japanese Silk Love Rope Ball Gag to my friends? Probably not. I would suggest that they continue shopping around, read some reviews before making a final decision to buy this product.

I used the Japanese Silk Love Rope Ball Gag in some photos for Sinful Sunday Meme and the February Photo Fest Challenge

Bullseye Silicone Dildo [Review]

I have been given the opportunity to review the Pleasure Works Bullseye Silicone Dildo from Good Vibrations. The box itself reminds me of a quart of milk, perhaps a bit wider. The outside of the box gives pretty good product details, even states that the box is recyclable. The box is sealed with tape and the dildo is inside a plastic bag.

Dildos have not been my favorite sex toy to use, however the Bullseye has changed my mind.  I was briefly disappointed when I looked at the box. The quote “never judge a book by its cover” popped into my mind. Be open-minded, I thought. You’re doing this for testing purposes, to share your opinion & experience of this product.

Bullseye Dildo

Looking at the dildo, it’s a pearlized white with subtle lines that encompass the dildo. I have one other dildo. The first thing I noticed about that dildo was the awful smell it had. The Bullseye dildo does not have that smell.  The very first thing I did before I even started to handle the dildo was to wash it with some soap & hot water. A huge plus in my book is that it’s waterproof. This makes for easy cleaning, easy care. However, since it is 100% silicone it also can collect dirt & dust easily. I dropped it on the hardwood floor when hitting it against the table, when I picked it up it had dog hair, my hair and debris from the floor stuck to it. I just rinsed it off with warm water. It air-dried on the countertop afterwards. The base is flat which allows it to stand. I would suggest keeping the box or keep it covered when not in use. I suggest a more thorough cleaning prior to using it during any sexual activity.

I decided to use some lube with the Bullseye, because I was a bit intimidated by the head of the dildo. The dildo has a flat rounded base, slightly curved with a bulbous head.  The Bullseye measures at approximately 6 inches with approximately 5 1/2 of insertable inches. The head measure approximately 1 1/2 inches in diameter and the shaft is approximately 1.25 inches. The base is approximately 2 1/2 inches in diameter.

When I first used the Bullseye, it did take some getting used to. I have a very small pelvis, sex toys that look big to some look enormous to me. I felt the fullness of the bulbous head, the thickness of the shaft. And I loved it every minute of it. Waves of pleasure were received by the Bullseye dildo while I used it. When my spouse used it on me it seemed too long, hitting my cervix causing me to move in discomfort. The Bullseye dildo is very flexible and bendable. It can be bent so that the tip touches the side of the base. That’s how flexible this dildo is.

What I DID NOT like about the Bullseye Dildo:

  • At times it become uncomfortable to hold by hand while in use.
  • Difficult to keep clean, collects debris, dust, hair. But very easily washed and cleaned.

Bullseye Dildo

What I DID like about the Bullseye Dildo:

  • The pearlized white color with a subtle design throughout the dildo.
  • 100% silicone. There is no foul, rubbery or plastic odor to this product.
  • Waterproof. Easy to clean, but difficult to keep clean when not in use.
  • Can be used by male or female.
  • Can be used with or without a harness.
  • Can be used for both vaginal and anal pleasure (g-spot and prostate).
  • Made in the USA.
  • It’s curved and very flexible, bendable.

I really enjoyed the Pleasure Works Bullseye Dildo. I no longer look at this dildo with disappointment. Now, what I really want is to get a harness to use with it. I’d like to test it with a harness, along with using it on a man for their opinion. I wonder how intimidating, if at all it would be to a man who is doesn’t get pegged often. 

Read about my pegging fantasy here.

Would I recommend the Pleasure Works Bullseye Dildo to my friends? Yes. Yes I would. Why? Because it’s a toy I would call “universal.” It can be used by & for either gender. A woman can use it on her lover; man or woman, hand-held or harness. A man can use it on his lover; man or woman. And it can be easily added into a couple’s lovemaking or sex scene. It’s a good dildo to own.

Butterfly Bliss Waterproof Vibrator [Sex Toy Product Review]

I was excited to receive the Butterfly Bliss Vibrator from Good Vibrations. Anything that vibrates excites me, the anticipation of future orgasms fill my mind. The packing is simple and the vibrator itself is wrapped inside a clear plastic bag, taped shut.

My Butterfly Bliss Vibrator is a matte teal color, it’s also available in pink. The vibrator is about 7.25 inches long with 1.25 at the widest part. There is 3 insertable inches of the vibrator with a bulb-like head. The outside of the box does state the insertable tip is 2 3/4 x 1 1/8″.  The bottom unscrews for the 2 AAA batteries which are not included. The control/power button is located at the very bottom of the vibrator. The 3 inches insertable inches of the vibrator is flexible. The Butterfly wings & antenna are also very flexible.

What I DID NOT like about the Butterfly Bliss Vibe:

  • It’s operated by 2 AAA batteries.
  • The battery life (even with brand new batteries) is not long. I have already used three sets of batteries. One set of brand new batteries I used in one day after using it for about 2 1/2 hours.
  • Price. It is a bit more than I am willing to pay for a product like this one. At GoodVibes.com it’s $29.00. Prices do vary depending on what site you are looking at. 
  • Is that the butterfly area must be cleaned very well. Otherwise fluids dry collecting more debris. Make sure to move around the butterfly wings, inspect the lines of the body of the butterfly. Even when I thought the area was clean, I noticed debris had collected, mostly by the wings. 
  • The vibrator can get warm while using it for a while. 
  • The intensity of the vibrator can be hard on those who have health issues with hands, wrists and fingers.

What I DID like about the Butterfly Bliss Vibe:

  • Waterproof
  • Dual power/control button. Simple to use. If you only use the low setting you have to pass the higher two settings to reach the off option.
  • G-spot stimulation while also stimulating clitoris. The intense vibration can be felt in the bulbous head along with the butterfly area.
  • Silicone. There is no bad odor to this product (like I have experienced in the past). It is silicone so it does pick up debris.

Conclusion

The Butterfly Bliss Waterproof Vibrator is a nice little novelty. Not a vibrator I would recommend to my friends. Why? Because I’ve been spoiled with USB chargeable vibrators. Don’t get me wrong, some battery-operated vibrators work great. I just don’t like that this one seems to suck the battery juice down in a short amount of time. 

When I used this the last time I kept thinking “How many hours I have used this? I’m gonna be pissed off if the batteries start to weaken and I’m on the verge of my orgasm!” 

There is also something about the way it “fits” or “doesn’t fit.” “One size” does not fit all. The good thing about the Butterfly Bliss vibrator is that is very bendable. Once inserted the Butterfly Bliss can be slightly angled so that the butterfly’s antenna & wings can surround the clit, if it can (comfortably) reach your clit. Really take time to know your body, because in my opinion this vibrator will not fit every women in the way it is intended to.
