JollyVoxBox [Product Review]

I have been a member of Influenster.com since August 2013. I found the site from looking on someone’s blog. I can’t remember who. I was curious, so I signed up. I let the account sit there for a few months. Then I decided to look into further. I answered some of the survey questions, nosed around some profiles. The only thing I really screwed up on was filling out the “Expert Badges” A member can have only 5 of these badges. So, choose wisely Padawan. 

I recieved an email from Influenster.com stating that I was eligible for a JollyVoxBox. HUH?!

Snickerdoodle Chex Mix

20131230-123124.jpg

At $2.78 a bag. I was doing some impulsive shopping. A 1/3 cup (approx. 11) is only 110 calories. Sodium is low at 35mg and 12mg of sugar. This tasty treat of Chex cereal has a very messy sugar coating. A finger licking treat. No, I didn’t lick my fingers.

Snickerdoodle flavored, like the cookies. However the cookies aren’t as messy. This treat reminds me of eating sugar wafers while I’m chewing it and then there is an after taste left in my mouth. Which I don’t like at all. Along with an annoying drying of my lips. I won’t be purchasing this product again. It’s true, don’t food shop when you’re hungry.20131230-122353.jpg

The Chirbit iOS App Review

I decided to download the official Chirbit iOS app after seeing the android version posted on Facebook.

Check this out on Chirbit

At first, I thought “I’m not gonna pay 99 cents for an app.” There are so many other audio apps that are free. Why would I or should I pay for one? Then I thought to myself “you waste more money on worse things. Go ahead buy it.” So, I did. I had to “sign up” for an account which ended up to be on the chirbit.com website. Once a person records the chirbit then uploads it, the recorded audio will be posted on their newly created profile page on chirbit.com.

20131122-122428.jpg

As I continued to look around the app, I noticed that a user can choice between using the “iPhone speaker or iPhone.” The iPhone speaker is the louder of the two, using just the iPhone is like listening to the audio as the phone is held up to the ear. There is a “glider” button that I still haven’t figured out what it’s for.

The user can “like” or “share” and most importantly add a typed comment directly to the chirbit (audio) in the main feed section.  There are several options for sharing the newly recorded audio. The user can choice from Twitter, Facebook, Copy the URL.  I attempted to use “Copy the URL”  this caused the app to shut itself down. I tried doing it twice, both times the app shut down.  The user can also choice to “Open in Safari” or “show QR code.” I have not used either of those options.

20131122-122409.jpg

The main feed section is where the user can find audio to listen to. There are three sections to find something to listen to. The “Mine, Top and New” tabs are located in the upper right corner. The user clicks on the play button and is taken to another page where the individual audio post is located. The user must click the play button again. The user must click “back” in order to return to main feed. I failed to click the “stop” button on the audio, clicked “back” and the audio continued to play. I had difficulty trying to find the page that I was listening to in order to shut off the audio. I thought I returned to the same page in order to shut off the audio, instead it loaded another fresh page all the while the audio continued to play in the back ground. I ended up with two open audio pages, because I clicked what I thought was the stop button, but that was not the case. So, now I had two audios playing, frustrated I deleted the app, then re-installed it.

20131122-123047.jpg

Once  you recorded a chirbit you can run your finger on the outer circle of the record page, this causes the audio to fast forward. Counter clockwise on the outer circle will rewind the audio. When recording the audio I noticed there are no indicator lights. The lights that a few other apps have so that a user can see and measure the sound of their voice and or surrounding sounds. I noticed on my first few audios that there was some clicking sounds or breaking up a bit. Multi-tasking with the iPhone will cause the recording to pick up the “tapping” of the home button, unlocking phone, etc.

20131122-122353.jpg

Check this out on Chirbit

There is a Search section where a user can search by “Geo, Users, Chirbits.” Breaking it down if one is looking for a very specific audio on this app or the website.

20131122-122415.jpg

When the recorded audio is complete, the user clicks the “upload recording.” This brings up the area in which the audio can edited. There is no spell check in this app. So, watch your typing skills when you are typing in the title and description.  At the bottom there is the “Post to Chirbit” button. This will upload your audio to your new profile page on the chirbit.com website.  If you don’t “Post to Chirbit” the audio will remain in your “files” tab until you are ready to delete, edit & publish it.

20131122-122434.jpg

I had mentioned in one of my chirbits that I wasn’t aware of any time limit for recording audio. I received the following comment … “On the app you can record for as long as you have space on your iPhone.” This statement was left on  my second chirbit by the founder & creator of Chirbit Ivan Reyes.  The website has been around for quite a few years now.

I will give this app a “thumbs up.” Like most newly developed apps, it may have a few kinks and bugs to sort out. The only issues I didn’t like was that the app seemed just a bit busy. To me, there is a lot to it. However, once you play around with the app, it’s pretty good. I’m not keen on spending money for apps, so that is a negative point for me. I was really curious about it, so I purchased it. The website offers lots more options. Having a profile on the site after purchasing the app is pretty good. I would recommend the website for sure. Just don’t expect a lot of interaction, because there really isn’t any. If you do join or purchase the app, remember to follow me there at SassyCat3000. Tell ’em Cat sent you! Got questions? Contact me.

Size Does Count [Review]

It’s meaty & long and has served me well. Very well, so well that I don’t even remember that it smells kind of like a brand new pool toy or a new plastic toy. I was not disappointed with the Crystal Jellies Ballsy Cock.

 

The Crystal Jellies Ballsy Cock is my first non-vibrating sex toy. I wanted something that could be used in the bedroom, in the shower and to be able to be used on a man or woman (in case I had an opportunity to peg a man). Manufactured by Doc Johnson, this Ballsy Cock covers all of what I was looking for. The first thing I noticed was the odor of this dildo, similar to a new pool toy. I have washed it (before & after use) with plain bar soap and anti-bacterial soap along with warm to hot water, the odor still remains. The odor is even noticeable on my hands after just picking it up to put in away. It’s a plus that this toy is so easy to clean with just soap & water or a toy cleaner.

The size of this dildo was one of the main reasons for the purchase. Made from PVC, this dildo is lengthy & meaty, very realistic looking with veins included.
I was definitely satisfied with how it felt when in use. There was a feeling of fullness, however I tried it first without lube. This was not a good idea, I added a comfortable amount of generic water based lube and that was much better. I will say that the size of this sex toy to too big for me to attempt to use it for anal sex.

There is a suction cup at the base, holds up very well on the shower wall, on the bedroom wall and tables/desks. The suction cup base also makes it easy to hold by hand. I didn’t find any lack of suction issues with this, once in a while on the shower wall it would slide with movement but wouldn’t come off the wall completely.

The another issue that I had with this dildo, is that it is heavy, weighing approximately one pound, it would definitely hurt someone if they got smacked in the face during a rough sex scene of some sort. It is very flexible, easy bendable, comfortable to use in different positions.

This cock is a bit on the large & long size, measuring in at 7 3/4″ in length with 6 1/2″ insertable inches The girth is measured at 5 1/4″ inches. The diameter of the dildo is a bit over an inch and the suction base diameter is approximately 2 1/2″ inches. You will definitely feel this dildo when you’re using it.

This sex toy is made out of PVC or Polyvinyl Chloride. It is Latex free & Phthalates free. According to EdenFantasys the safety rating is at 2. I would strongly suggest using a condom with this sex toy, get non-lubricated or water based condoms. I used the “equate” brand of water based lubricant, which works with the condoms & the toy itself with no reactions. I haven’t tried any other types of lube with this product.

I learned the hard way about storing all my sex toys together. This one is wrapped in an old cotton pillow case that I cut in half. Because this product does attract debris if not covered up. Always wash with soap & water before & after use. When I’m finished its put in an older (small) traveling suitcase with the handles & rollers.

Experience

I accidentally left it suck to my office wall to remind me to finish the review. During the middle of the night I heard a thud in my office. I peeked into the office the next morning, didn’t see anything right away. When I did see the dildo on the office floor, I realized that it was the noise I heard in the middle of the night. It had taken hours for it to fall off the wall. The side that landed on the floor was covered with floor debris. I immediately washed it off and the dildo looked as good as new, still had that odor.

An Expensive Lesson

Extreme Pure Gold.

This was my first Rabbit vibrator, unfortunately I didn’t know how to care for it. It “melted” along with the other vibrators I had stored together. This was a very expensive lesson to learn.

The was my very first Rabbit Vibrator. I enjoyed it very well. Eight rows of beads that can rotate clockwise or counter-clockwise offers a different sensation. The two settings of high/low only seemed to offer a very slight difference in sensation & sound. It does not bend at all, sometimes the “rabbit ears” needed to be adjusted. They just didn’t seem to match me well.
Using this vibrator with a house full of people is not a good idea. It’s loud when it comes to the noise level, even with the doors closed & under the covers.
It requires 4 AA batteries. I did notice that the battery housing seemed a bit loose. When the vibrator is held upright it doesn’t always make the connection, causing it not to work. If you turn the vibrator upside down, connection is made & product works properly.
It was easy to clean up afterwards, just soap & water. It’s waterproof & I had no issues with water getting into it. I never used it in the shower. Just remember not to store this will other similar vibrators because they will begin to “melt” each other. An expensive lesson I learned, sad to say.

Pros

Waterproof
Easy to Clean
Multispeed

Cons

Large Product
Not Flexible

I gave the Extreme Pure Gold  4 Vrooms & 4 Bees (according to edenfantasys.com)

It’s a large & noisy vibrator, not discreet if you try to hide some where. However, it does it’s job very well. If you have not used a vibrator of this size before, it may take a few times to get use it, but I think it’s worth trying.

Eevzdrop App

Yesterday I downloaded a new iOS app.

eevzdrop

Eevzdrop is an audio recording app. I remember seeing the article back on Mashable.com, however when I went to the iTunes store eevzdrop still wasn’t available for download. I put it out of my mind. Until yesterday, when I stumbled upon it again. This time I downloaded it and started experimenting with it.

my eevzdrop screenshot

[My Pros] The first thing that caught my eye is that there is a 10 minute limit on the audio, which some other audio apps are 3, 5 or unlimited. This is a plus for eevzdrop in my book. Second thing, is that there is a draft folder. You can record then save it until later. Once you have recorded your “edrop” you can …

  1. Add a title/caption (which also has the time recorded included)
  2. Add your GeoTag or location (optional)
  3. Hashtags. Which is a good idea because there isn’t a place to add a brief description of the edrop, so this would allow you to describe what your edrop is about.
  4. Mentions. You can “tag” other members in your edrop.
  5. You have the option of uploading a picture to also assist in describing your edrop if you so desire.

This is what it looks like when you are adding your edrop

You can listen to my eevzdrop here

Lastly, eevzdrop has a very good system of finding new content to listen to. There is a “discover” button within that option you have two ways to search via “featured” & “search.” Click the featured and it’s broken down into categories. Click the search button, you then see all the users listed with a search bar; plus you then have another option of searching by “hashtags” or “users.” I think that’s great to have, because it’s all about being social with social media.

Several ways to find new content

 

[My Cons] The first issue is that there is no other option for sharing your edrop than to “copy URL.” I found that it’s important for users of social media to have options of multi-sharing their information on other apps, platforms, sites, you get the idea. People wanna be able to direct share onto their blogs, websites and OMG let’s not forget Facebook & Twitter!

Secondly, I noticed that a user can not upload audio files or down load their edrops. I know that some people use programs such as audacity to create & edit their audio/podcasts. Some people want to save their audio after recording, but in either case this is not possible (yet). Lastly, the app is only available in iOS not android. There is not desktop version or social website available. Strictly mobile & iOS. There is no play back button to listen to your recording, also I noticed that there is no indicating light or lights to let a person know that’s its actually recording. However the minute counter starts when the record button is pushed.

I couldn’t find anything major that would hinder me from continuing to use this app. It’s still in it’s infancy. So, there is lots of potential there. Maybe in the future add or change a few things, but it looks very promising.

Best part of all is that it’s FREE!

[note: at the finishing time of this post, eevzdrop had crushed. I was unable to load their site, along with my profile on the app. When I finally did get the app to load everything appeared to be wiped clean. Hopefully this is a only temporary & that guys are hard at work to correct the problem]

 

Fetish Fantasy Inflatable Position Master – Position Pillow – Review

Fetish Fantasy inflatable position master – Sex slings, pillows and support – EdenFantasys

Front Cover of Box

My current sex toy review is of the Fetish Fantasy Inflatable Position Master – Position Pillow by pipedream and available at edenfantasys.com currently on sale for $21.56.

Fetish Fantasy Inflatable Position Master (back side of box)

The package is pretty simple. You might want to keep this box handy for later storage of the pillow. There is no other means of storage, unless you have your own “toy box” hidden under the bed or in the closet some where. Inside the package you get the pillow, a blindfold, two circular patches and glue. All items wrapped separately in plastic bags.

Total Package. Inflatable pillow, blindfold, box, two circular patches with glue.

The material of the pillow consists of a suede type material. This pillow seems to attract dust, lint and hair.  Do not use a white or light-colored towel for after use cleaning. The black coloring tends to come off and will end up on your towels. To save your towels, use a wet wipe of some sort. The blindfold is an item that is just simple enough to start off a couple in “role playing.” My spouse did suggest to deflate the pillow, perhaps soak in the sink for a good cleaning. I have not tried that yet.

An angle view of the position pillow (side) Plastic Handles on the sides of pillow

My first concern was that of putting too much weight on the pillow that the air nozzle would pop out and deflate the pillow. The pillow does take about 5 -10 minutes of heavy blowing into the pillow to inflate it. The edges of the pillow are a bit rough, scratchy on bare skin.  The handles are handy when a quick adjustment is needed.  The handles can get in the way when using it in some sex positions. The box says “holds up to 300 lbs.” It has held up so far.  I did notice that not all positions are possible when using the pillow, depends on the height of the individuals. I recommend it for any one who is limited on income, on a budget and wanting to try something new. It does add that little bit of extra support. Don’t forget to continue to add to your toy collection, once you purchase this pillow, add some restraints, lubes, ball gag, feather tickler and anything else you desire.

 My Rating is as follows – (according to edenfantasys.com)

(N/A) Vrooms – The toy does not vibrate.

(N/A) Bees – The toy does not make noise.

Clit Exciter – Very Powerful

Clit Exciter

This little slender number is very powerful indeed. I will say that it will leave your hand and fingers feeling a bit numb & tingly after the first time you use it.

The 3 pieces that make up the clitoral encaser

The Clit Exciter does just that, it’s available at EdenFantasys.com for only $14.99. When I first opened the package I wasn’t impressed with the general instruction sheet for the battery insertion. There is a clear plastic tube that the batteries are placed in. It uses 2 AAA batteries. The Exciter has a vibration control at the very base, it tends to be very touchy. To increase speed of the vibration you just merely turn the very base clockwise.  It can be accidentally shut off during sex, merely by the awkwardness of holding onto it.

The “head” with “love dots” of the clit exciter

I did not like the angle of the Clit Exciter, the actual weight that turns within the  exciter is slightly above the actual angle so if you are resting it on your body more than just your clit will feel the intense vibrating. Another thing I noticed was that it is seemingly loud. However, when I turned it on high in the office and walked into my “Beloved’s” office attempting to hear it. I couldn’t. So it does seem loud in the same room but I was not able to hear it in the room right next door.

Close Up of the “love dots” and clit “cap”

I wasn’t so thrilled with the little “cap” for your “bean”. It’s not like one size fits all, however the nubs or “love dots” that surround the “cap” may add some additional stimulation, but once again, due to the intense & powerful vibration it’s difficult to tell.

It’s a very easy clean, made of hard plastic. It’s not flexible. This stimulator has no plastic smell like some other sex toys. I like the idea it’s waterproof and super easy to clean. Just use soap & hot water. I have washed it and have noticed there is no water leakage into the stimluator (so far). There are some added sprinkles in the plastic and is available in 4 different colors.

My Rating is as follows…(according to EdenFantasys.com)

  • 4 Vrooms = Strong and easily felt vibrations that powerfully stimulate but are not “earth-shaking”.
  • 3 Bees = Moderate noise level, similar to a small appliance, can heard through covers and probably through a closed door.
