Paloqueth Mermaid Review

I’ve been really thinking about affordable toy recommendations this year. I’m confident that I’ve found a few cheaper dildo recommendations, and I’m always on the lookout for affordable external vibrators, but I’m at a total loss when it comes to cheaper insertable vibrators. That’s why I was so chuffed when Paloqueth reached out to me about reviewing one of their incredibly affordable products. I’ve heard whisperings of the Mermaid being particularly good, and a good quality, rechargeable, silicone vibrator for around AUD 40 sounded like something I absolutely had to get my hands on!

L’Amourose Prism V Review

[Header Image Description: The sky blue Prism V lying on a floral bedspread. It has a curve like the head of the Loch Ness Monster, and the handle is faceted.]

The L’Amourose Prism V has become my sneaky jerk-off vibe, as well as my go-to travel vibe. Last week I was on holidays in the country, and when I was picking what toys I wanted to bring with me, I immediately knew that I wanted the Prism V. I received it from Max Black a few months ago after lusting after it for months, and the honeymoon period looks like it’s never going to end.

Fun Factory Big Boss G5 Review

[Header Image Description: The Fun Factory Big Boss G5, a pink semi-realistic vibrator with a white handle, lying on a paper bag next to a carrot.]

The Fun Factory G5 Big Boss filled the gaping hole in my sex toy collection – for more than two years, I didn’t own a reliable internal vibrator. Sure, I had a (possibly? hopefully?) TPE disaster that I bought a month after my 18th birthday, but I’m sensible enough not to use that anymore. I briefly flirted with a Fun Factory Stronic Eins, but I don’t own one myself. The truth is, since I’ve graduated to body-safe materials, I have mainly whiled away my orgasming hours with dildos. Nevertheless, I have wanted the Big Boss for a while now, and I finally got around to buying it. The immediate upside to the Big Boss is that it is cheaper than the Stronic Eins at AUD130-150. I was disappointed that the G5 model doesn’t come in orange like the G4 did, but I settled with hot pink. (The peach looks more like a disembodied penis than most realistic dildos I have ever seen. Maybe it’s the lack of a base?) The charging base is magnetic, which gives me flashbacks, but it seemed to charge well enough while shoved in a drawer so that I didn’t have to stare at those annoying flashy lights. One thing I love about Fun Factory, though, is that all their rechargeable toys come with a USB charger rather than a wall charger, so I can buy Fun Factory toys from the US or the UK and not have to worry about getting a down-step transformer.

Lelo Ina 2 Review

[Header Image Description: The Lelo Ina 2, a green rabbit vibrator, lying in its black box, with the green sleeve next to it.]

A little while ago, I wrote a pretty scathing draft review of the Lelo Ina 2, but that night I used the Ina 2 again, and realised I was being a bit too harsh. I wrote my reviews for the Ina 2 and the Fun Factory Big Boss G5 at the same time, and my infatuation with the Big Boss really overshadowed the Ina 2. Additionally, I had just heard about Lelo’s choice to make Charlie Sheen their spokesperson for their terrible condom. On top of that, I’m generally bitter about the concept of rabbit vibrators. They promise hands-free stimulation, amazing orgasms, and the idea of the one toy to end them all, but so rarely do they deliver on all or even one of those promises. Though the Ina 2 is made of body-safe silicone and can be sanitised. I was particularly drawn to the Ina 2 because I heard about the clamp-like pressure of the external stimulator. I love intense pressure, frequently mashing my Doxy Wand against my genitals as I near orgasm, and I hoped the Ina 2 could do the same, without the wrist strain. The Lelo Ina 2 would be my first Lelo product of my very own, and I bought it in January 2016 with the last of my Christmas money from – where else – Max Black. Continue reading “Lelo Ina 2 Review”
