Vibease Esthesia: Without The App

This review will be split up into two posts, to address the function of the Esthesia with and without the app. The link to the companion review will be linked at the end of this post.

Last week, I was rudely reminded of the fact that I was already in high school when the very first iPhone was released. The swiftly approaching end of the current decade must have people feeling nostalgic, because I’ve been seeing tweet after Tumblr post after Facebook status harking back to when the most exciting app was a fake beer bottle. I’m definitely not on the cutting edge of technology (I connected my phone via Bluetooth for the first time in May), but like most sex toy reviewers, I try to keep abreast of teledildonics news. The idea that you (or someone else!) could control a vibrator with the ease and responsiveness of a touch screen is frankly incredible. Unfortunately, most Bluetooth compatible toys focus on the ability of another person to remotely control a toy, whether from the other side to trans-Atlantic phone sex. I can’t reap the benefits of most Bluetooth compatible toys because I don’t know anyone interested in using them with me. That’s why I was so excited by Vibease’s vibrators, which are app compatible vibrators designed to sync with erotic audio stories. Drawn to the fantasy of a completely handsfree masturbation sesh, letting an audiobook set the pace, I opted for the rabbit style vibrator, the Vibease Esthesia.

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!

Lovehoney Desire Luxury Curved G-Spot Vibrator Review

[Header Image Description: The Desire Luxury Curved G-Spot Vibrator, a purple vibrator sitting on a light wood floor, in front of a light blue textured plaster wall. The vibrator has a bulbous head, followed by a deep curve, then a thicker handle portion. The handle portion has a slight curve as well.]

I bought a lot of my first sex toys from Lovehoney – the Doxy Wand, and the Feeldoe, for example. I still buy my lube from Lovehoney, and I continue to find real showstopper toys in their broad collection. Lovehoney is as much of a part in my sex toy experience as Max Black, but a blindspot in my knowledge was Lovehoney’s own range of sex toys. Thanks to the wonderful team at Lovehoney, I’ve been able to fill in some of that gap, because I’ve been sent the Desire Luxury Curved G-Spot Vibrator in exchange for a review.

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.
