Hot Octopuss DiGiT

[Header Image Description: The Hot Octopuss DiGiT, a black finger vibrator with a bulbous silicone body, and a rosy plastic base. The side of the vibrator has “Hot Octopuss” written in raised text and two small oval speed buttons. A plastic figure-eight style finger loop with the Hot Octopuss crown logo on it connects to the base. The vibrator sits on a green leather table with intricate gold borders.]

Finger vibrators, like rabbits, are another candidate ripe for image rehabilitation in the sex toy sphere. I know when I think “finger vibe” my mind automatically goes to the cheap single-use vibrator rings you can buy from rusty condom machines. A few companies (a sizeable handful, if you will) have been releasing revamped finger vibes made with body safe materials and decent motors. Hot Octopuss reached out to me to review the DiGiT, and as a person with grip and dexterity issues, my interest was definitely piqued.

[Header Image Description: The Noje W3, a palm-sized wand vibrator with a curved light green handle and a white head, sitting in front of a magnetic wooden nativity scene. Surrounding the vibrator are animals, shepherds, the three kings, and the angels.]

So, I come back to blogging after a few months, and suddenly every toy I review is my new favourite! First the NS Novelties Wave, and now the Noje W3! What’s going on? Where have my standards gone? Have I lost my touch?

Can You Handle It? Tantus Handles Review

[Header Image Description: The Tantus Goddess Handle, Anaconda Handle, Echo Handle, and G-Force Handle, sitting in a clear crystal vase, on a granite bench top. A cream fridge, white cabinets, and wooden floorboards are visible in the background.]

Being physically disabled frequently means existing in a world that wasn’t designed with you in mind. Out of necessity, a lot of disabled people need to be incredibly innovative, and our sex lives are not exempt from this. I’ve recently become a proponent of the paddle method, which has made masturbation so much easier. I’ve held vibes in ways they aren’t meant to be held, and found new positions that keeps my joints happy during partnered sex. However, every once in a while, there’s a product which has disabled people in mind. In this instance, I’m talking about the Tantus handles. I’ve seen them on plenty of lists about sex toys for people with physical disabilities but I haven’t seen many reviews specifically about the accessibility of these dildos. Tantus kindly sent me the whole handled range in exchange for a review.

NS Novelties Wave Review

[Image Description: A selfie of me, a light-skinned aboriginal person, wearing a grey t-shirt with a design of two interlocking Mars signs and a banner that reads “Gay Punk Heart”, and rainbow suspenders. I am holding the NS Novelties Wave, a rainbow dildo that is in a wave shape with a bulbous head. The dildo is suctioned onto a green acrylic paddle.]

I have to make a confession: I mostly bought this dildo because it looked nice. There’s been a veritable explosion of rainbow and other pride flag-themed toys recently, and I really wanted one to display in my new dildo closet. The NS Novelties Pride range have been the most accessible rainbow dildos in Australia for a while (but now we have the Geeky Sex Toys pride flag insertables!) but the realistic ones run a bit bigger than I am usually comfortable with. The Waves dildos are a much more manageable size and a more appealing shape for my g-spotting preferences. I thought that the Wave would be something I could suggest as a first dildo – it’s body-safe, easy to clean, anal safe and strap-on compatible, reasonably priced, easy to buy in Australia, and is visually appealing on top of all of that – but the Wave has actually become one of my favourite dildos.

Night Shift by Joanna Angel Review

[Header Image Description: Night Shift, A Choose-Your-Own Erotic Fantasy, by Joanna Angel, sitting on a white bookshelf. The cover is a silhouette of a woman in front of a neon Peep Show and Adult Video sign.]

I listened to Kate Sloan interview porn royalty and freshly published author Joanna Angel on the Dildorks, I fell head over heels for her new book, Night Shift. Joanna Angel writes some really dynamic porn scripts (she even won best comedy release at the 2018 XBIZ awards!) so I was immediately excited to read her first novel, but when I found out it was a choose-your-own-adventure novel, I knew I had to have it. I love unique ideas when it comes to sexuality, but it’s important that they actually work, and Night Shift really, really does. The main character of Night Shift is Taryn, a college graduate who has moved back home to Pasco County, Florida, and found a job at a local sex-on-premises adult store. The store is called “Dreamz”, and just from the name I can picture the exact kind of gaudy shop this is set in. According to Joanna Angel, Taryn is essentially who Angel was when she graduated college: innocent, inexperienced, and lacking direction. No matter what level of familiarity you are at with sex, Taryn is a perfect window into this world. You get the definition of a Fleshlight for beginners, but you also get nods to cult classic toys like the njoy Pure Wand and the Hitachi.
