Review: SpareParts Joque Harness August 12, 2012

Filed under: reviews,toys — Lorax Of Sex @ 5:13 pm

As much as I love leather, I’ve never really liked leather dildo harnesses. The plastic ones are even worse (remember jelly shoes and how horrid those made feet look? Yeah- I don’t even wanna think about what my cunt would look like when strapped down under a harness of that stuff. Ugh). So, for a long time I didn’t have a harness. I MacGyver-ed together cock-weilding devices out of bondage tape, BVDs, pantyhose, and all manner of other household items. So I’ve gotta say I was pretty excited when I heard about a (then) new company called SpareParts Hardware who was making a whole new kind of harness. A harness that was being described with such words as “comfortable” and “washable”. This excited me enough that I went out and bought one, despite the fact that I was single and had no one whatsoever to use a harness with. That didn’t matter. I needed to have this, because… reasons.

So off I went to one of my local sex stores who had just begun carrying SpareParts harnesses, and picked up the Joque style harness in the size “A”. Black, obviously. Wait- size “A”? What the heck does that mean? SpareParts realizes that people don’t come in “one size fits all,” not only that, but measurements aren’t the end of the sizing discussion either. So they have two sizes for their super-adjustable harnesses, allowing for waist measurements from 20″-65″ and leg circumferences of 10″-24″. The harness itself is made of stretchy elastic for the leg straps and the waist belt, and swimsuit-like material for the pouch portion of the harness. The whole thing adjusts with a series of sliders and velcro. No quick-buckles to pinch skin, no standard buckles needing new holes to be punched, no snaps to fiddle with. You simply step in, pull it up, and cinch it down. It’s almost like a rock-climbing harness, come to think of it…

The pouch portion of the Joque is really where this harness is awesome. First, it’s of that soft swimsuit-like material so it feels nice against my skin. I like things that feel nice, and I’m pretty sure most other people do too. Second, it’s got these little flaps which you can tuck over the base of whatever toy you’re using in the harness. Let me say this again- it has a built-in method of preventing the base of your toy from ripping out your shorthairs with every movement. With the modern trend of brazilian waxes this may not be as big a deal for you as it is for me, but let me just say that depilation by dildo is NOT a fun experience. Third, it has a built-in stretchy o-ring. This means you don’t have to swap out o-rings with annoying snaps. Yes, I dislike snaps, how did you know? Anyhow- the o-ring is stretchier than it feels when you manipulate it with your hands. Unlike the rodeoH, the o-ring on the SpareParts Joque easily accommodates a wide range of toys, from narrow one-inch diameter pegging toys to the impressive over 2″ of the Randy (ok, Randy takes a bit of lube and wiggling, but it’s do-able). I’m seriously impressed. I’ve sat around bored shoving various phallic-esque household items into the o-ring, and neither the material nor the stitching is worse for the wear. The pouch of the harness also includes two little sleeves to house vibrating bullets, one above and one below the o-ring. I don’t tend to use them, mostly because the little bullets generally aren’t the right type of vibration for me, but I know some people love the darn things.

One disappointment for me is that despite many descriptions of the Joque style leaving the wearer’s pink bits exposed for stimulation, this isn’t really true. Yes, it leaves your ass accessible and that’s quite nice, but it does block the vaginal canal unless you pull the pouch away from the body, at which point you lose the ability to have your leverage for thrusting. This may or may not be a thing for you. Planning a 3-way and want to be the Lucky Pierre? It’s anal or nothing, sweetheart. At least if you’re using a flat-backed dildo. If you’re using a dual-penetration toy like a Share or Feeldoe, then your front hole will already be busy anyhow. I suppose that things are more exposed and accessible than wearing their Theo style harness, which is more a thong panty style, but I still feel like the hype of it leaving access to the genitals to be a bit misleading. It’s a minor gripe though.

Hands-down though, the best most awesome part of SpareParts harnesses in general, not just the Joque, is that you can toss them in the washing machine. I wash mine with bras and other delicates, and then hang it up to dry. That’s not to say I haven’t accidentally tossed it in the dryer once or twice. So far, no harm done by my laundry-day absentmindedness, but it’s not recommended. Washability means a lot of things. It means you can use your harness tonight with this partner, and tomorrow with that. Gone are the days of having dedicated harness for each partner (because leather is porous and you can’t fully clean it). I’ve even leant my harness to my Brother when he forgot his one weekend. Washability gives me the ease to say, in the middle of a scene “You know what would be fun, Daddy? I’d really like it if she fucked me…” and hold up my harness and sparkly silicone cock, without having to worry about bodyfluid issues.

Speaking of the toys that go along with harnesses, my harness came with a storage bag made of the same stretchy swimsuit fabric as the pouch on the harness. And it’s a sizeable storage bag too. It fits my harness, cock, condoms, dams, gloves, lube, bullet vibes, and Mystic Wand, all in one toggle-clasp draw-string bag of awesome. I hear that they may have re-designed the storage bags, so if yours comes with something different I’d love to hear what it is. Heck- I even saved the black box which my Joque came in, and it’s now my buttplug storage bin. I think that’s the first time I’ve ever saved the retail packaging for a sextoy ever. Well done SpareParts, well done indeed.


Review: Jackboot Paddle August 6, 2012

Filed under: kink,reviews,she vibe,toys — Lorax Of Sex @ 11:58 pm

What spanko boot lover wouldn’t want a paddle with a nice hefty boot sole? I don’t know, because I definitely wanted it! I had such fantasies about warm, rosy bootprints on my ass the moment I first saw photos of the Jackboot Paddle. The tagline used by the maker is even “Always leaves it’s mark”! The nice folks at SheVibe sent me one to play with, and I was super excited when it arrived in the mail. I promptly delivered it over to Daddy, because it’s not like I’m gonna spank myself with it. I’ve now had the pleasure of playing with it in a few different scenarios and I’ve gotta say- I like it, but not in the way I expected to.

The paddle is much more light-weight than I’d expected it to be. I think the rubber tread is probably the heaviest part of the whole paddle. The wooden base is 1/4″ ply and the boot tread is glued on. I’ve pulled and pried at the tread, and it’s definitely stuck on there solidly. The “stitching” on the sole is faux, just part of the rubber mould for the tread. I’m confident, however, that adhesion of the sole to the wood is not a likely fail point. What disappoints me about the weight of the paddle is (as many impact-toy lovers will know) that light-weight generally means the sensations are on the sting-ier side than the thud-y side. I’m an avowed non-fan of sting-y sensations, with the rare exceptions of bare-handed spanking and belt-spankings, both of which have very unique attributes which trump their sting-y nature. Canes? Oh hell no. Canes are a surefire way to make me run to the other side of the room, and grab any implement I can find to defend myself against you with. With a firm follow-through there is a mix of sting and thud, but the sensation is definitely not what I was expecting. At first I thought perhaps it was because of the rubber of the tread, but then I remembered that I’ve been on the receiving end of the (now discontinued) BadAss Tire Tread Paddles and that was most decidedly a thud-y experience, so I’m pretty sure it’s just the lack of heft in the case of the Jackboot Paddle.

Where I feel this paddle really shines isn’t as a paddle at all really, but as a sensation toy. Dragging the tread along my back, over my ass, scraping my inner thighs, that was awesome. Of course, you can do this with your actual boots on your feet as well (and I like that quite a bit I must say) but the paddle is super handy for angles that are difficult or impossible with boot-clad feet, and also makes this sort of bootplay possible for those with disability. I’m big on accessibility, what can I say? Combining the sensation play of the sole with using the paddle as a paddle worked the best for me. I didn’t mind the sting as much then, because my mind was still focused partially on the scrape-y feeling. Sadly, I have yet to retain an impression from the tread, which was something I was really hoping for. I’ve been told that these paddles are great for making impressions by placing them upon a person and putting weights atop it, or having them sit on the paddle. I can definitely see temporary impressions being much more likely that way, though you’re not going to get tread-shaped bruises, which are what I really wanted. Oh well. I have seen other asses retain a boot-print welt and surface bruise though, so it’s certainly possible. Maybe I just have a resistant ass? Actually, that’s a very real possibility. Anyone who follows my twitter knows my love of marks, and grumpiness when they fade quickly.

Going back to the construction of the paddle, I do have some reservations on the materials choice for the base of the paddle. As I said earlier, it’s decidedly lightweight, and that means that for those who strike hard you run the risk of breaking the paddle. Some of us would be rather amused and delighted at a paddle breaking across our butt, but it still means you’re now left without a toy that you paid for.
I have actually seen one paddle where this happened. It was at Beyond Leather in Florida earlier this year, and indeed a strong strike on firm buttocks and the wood failed rather spectacularly. I’ve not had this happen to me personally, but it’s something to be aware of as a possibility with a paddle that is thin like this, especially if you or your partner are a hard-hitter. If you’ve had toys break across your butt before, you might want to reinforce the back of the paddle. Or not, if you don’t mind breaking toys.

I’m totally stoked that I got to play with this, and now that it’s been added to the toy wall at Daddy’s place I’m sure I’ll get to play with it more. It’s even got me thinking- I have a friend who made a paddle out of purpleheart wood. Got my brainmeats workin’ on an idea for a heavier more thud-y paddle with a sole. Hmm indeed…

So, if you’re a fan of sting-y paddles, a spanko, and/or a boot lover (or have one in your life) I’d say the Jackboot Paddle definitely belongs in your toybag. SheVibe has it for a super-affordable $36 too, which is hard to beat if you ask me.


In The Name Of Science: Rabbit Pearl July 30, 2012

Filed under: In the name of science,reviews,toys,vibratex — Lorax Of Sex @ 10:22 am

So, this happened. All I could think of afterwards was “oh gd, my vajayjay hurts”. In fact, I even said that to a friend of mine on chat shortly thereafter. “I feel like I should use the term vajayjay in the review of this damn thing”, I said, “because that seems like the stupid pop-culture Sex-in-the-City thing to do”. I feel like that’s probably the only reason that so-called “rabbit” style sextoys even took off in the way they did. Heck, the packaging on the Rabbit Pearl even touts it with a big “as seen on Sex in the City” on the label. My friend queried if it wasn’t because they are a dildo that stimulates the clit as well. Yep, that’s what I’d thought too. Boy were we both wrong.

The angle at which the bunny is situated from the shaft is ALL WRONG so it doesn’t really stimulate the clit, and even if it kinda did, those vibrations are so surface and buzzy that they’re useless. As it stands the ears of the bunny flutter until they make contact with my labia, and then THEY STOP. My labia are too much interference apparently. Now, I’ve gained some weight lately so I’ve got slightly fleshier labia than I’ve had in earlier years of my life, but even so I don’t have terribly formidable outer lips. I tried to get the nose of the bunny against my clit but there was no way that was going to happen, especially not while that damn thing was gyrating away inside me. Which brings me rather conveniently to my next issue…

Dicks don’t rotate. Why does this rotate? I feel like I’m being scooped out like a jack-o-lantern. If I stuff this thing into my vajayjay when I’m not warmed up I can feel the head of it doing circles around my cervix as my body tries in vain to shrink away from this atrocity. Even when warmed up, I can feel each gyration scraping me out, whacking against my pelvic bones. It’s true that my pubic bone is slightly differently shaped than most, because I shattered it as a small child. I’ve never had a lover notice though, until after I told them and pointed it out, so it’s not like my pelvic bones are freakishly misshapen.

Just no. The whole thing. No. Not to mention that the classics are made out of sub-par materials, namely jelly or PVC- both of which contain pthalates. I award Vibratex one point for disclosing that their PVC has pthalates, but revoke five for their PVC having pthalates. This particular model that I have is made of elastomer, which is on the low end of my acceptability scale. Y’know what? One point for re-releasing their classic rabbits in pthalate-free materials. Lose half a point for elastomer instead of silicone. If you’re going to re-release a toy in the name of making it out of a safer material, why not go all the way and go with silicone? It’s hard to get more body-safe than silicone.

Also: C cell batteries. WTF. When was the last time you used a C cell battery? My flashlights are all AA or D. My headlamp might be AAAs, I haven’t swapped batteries out in that in a while. I don’t think I’ve used a C cell since I had a tape recorder. That would be the 80’s, kids, for those of you who don’t remember tape recorders. As if taking C cells isn’t insult enough, it doesn’t just take C cells but it takes THREE of them. Do you know what size packs C cells come in? TWO or FOUR. Yup. Thanks guys. Thanks so much for that.

So, key points here:

  1. Vibrations that are completely useless
  2. Scraping gyrations
  3. Materials should not be toxic
  4. WTF C cells
  5. Why does it have a face? And a necklace? WAT?

So now I have put this thing in me. It made me call my cunt my vajayjay. I found no redeeming qualities to it. If it wasn’t made of a porous material I’d use it to stir my tea, but I can’t because I’m not wasting condoms on that (plus ew, condom tea). I’m not even sure what the heck I’ll do with this. There has to be something fun to do with an absolutely useless rabbit vibe. Ideas? Oh and if for some reason you still really want to buy one of these? Please, make sure you’re getting the elastomer version. Don’t put pthalates up your vajayjay, m’kay?


Review: rodeoH Harness March 28, 2012

Filed under: contests,genderbending,reviews,toys — Lorax Of Sex @ 10:45 am

Back in December Scarlet’s Letter did a giveaway on her blog for the new rodeoH harness which everyone was buzzing about at the end of last year. I won. I never win things, so this was pretty exciting. I’d been wanting to try it out. I’d just gotten a new harness, but this was underpants AND a harness in one. I’m a big fan of things I can do multiple things with, and I was in need of new undies, so what the heck? I entered. I won. She mailed it to me. I got it home and opened up the package.

The rodeoH comes in this little microfibre pouch which, I must admit, reminded me a bit of the 90’s. Remember Oakleys? Know anyone who had them? They came in, you guessed it, a small microfibre pouch. Now it makes sense to me for sunglasses to come in such a pouch. It protects the lenses, gives you something to clean them with, I get it. A harness on the other hand? If it’s gonna come in a pouch of some sort I need it to fit stuff. Yes, if I pay attention and fold the rodeoH up I can get it back into its little pouch. But if I’m in a hurry, packing up my toybag and headed off to a play party I don’t want to have to fuss over it. I’d also like to fit other things in alongside my harness. Things like, oh I don’t know, maybe the cock I’m going to use with it, condoms, lube… y’know, things that go hand-in-hand with strap-on use. Also, since the pouch is small, I promptly lost it. It’s buried somewhere in a pile of laundry I’m sure, or it ended up going through the wash and is stuck inside a trouser leg. I’ll find it eventually.

The rodeoH also comes with a dogtag. Yeah, I don’t know why either. There’s this trend right now of toys coming with silly accessories. PicoBong and their weird little D6. Lelo with their cufflinks and pins. Because that’s just what you want when you buy yourself a new dildo or vibrator- a new tie pin. WTF? Most of these are luxury toys at that, and priced rather highly. Cut the crap and drop the price y’all. Anyhow, back to the rodeoH and its silly dogtag. I have nothing against dogtags. I wear one every day (it’s from my Daddy), but why I would want to wear one branded with the harness/underpants I’m wearing is beyond me.

So, silly trinket and too-small storage pouch aside, I’m still not sure how I feel about the rodeoH as a harness but I do know that they rock as underwear. The other day I found myself to be out of clean underwear, sorely in need of doing laundry, but no time before work. I figured why not, and put on the rodeoH, afterall they are designed like underwear. Gotta say, these are probably one of the most comfortable pairs on underpants I’ve worn. Easy to forget that I even had them on, which is a feat of underpants engineering if you ask me. I’d love to go commando, it’s super comfy, but my self-cleaning oven is just a bit too efficient, so it’s not really feasible in my world. Oh well. I’ll gladly wear the rodeoH instead!

As a harness though, the rodeoH falls a bit flat for me. Literally. Putting a cock into the rodeoH, even a small cock, is just too weighty and causes the front of the harness to dip, and my penis to sag. It’s sad really, no one wants a saggy penis. I got the 39-41 inch size in the rodeoH, as I’ve got some hip and thigh, but it’s decently snug. Snugger than I’d normally wear underpants, but not so much that they’re uncomfortable. If I went any smaller I do know that I would have fit issues around the thigh. Also, despite the appearance of standard mens briefs, the rodeoH rides low. Lower than men’s low-rise briefs, and lower than my fancy gay-man underwear from the designer mens underwear store. Once you add the weight of a dipping cock to it, I certainly felt as if the harness was going to slide down my ass mid-fuck. Not cool.  The o-ring on the rodeoH is not as stretchy as I’d expected either. Having tried other integral-ring harnesses which can accommodate some serious dildo-age, I was rather disappointed. Even moreso when I noted that upon inserting (and removing) the first cock I tried with the rodeoH, which was a rather modest 1½” in diameter, the seaming on the o-ring split. Definitely doesn’t bode well for larger toys or rigorous fucking. Lastly, I tried using the rodeoH as a packing harness, but most packys are too soft and slender and slip out through the ring, or dangle most unappealingly as they slip through until the balls block the ring and barely keep the now even more flaccid soft-pack from hitting the floor. This is a place where an extended tab base like that of the Private would be ideal.

I hear that rodeoH has come out with a boxer-brief style harness, and wonder if the addition of legs would give more stability, and allow for getting a size down without being too restricting. I’m curious. As it stands, I liked the rodeoH in theory, but in execution it’s not quite there. Comfy undies though. I think for now I’ll stick to modifying a pair of snug briefs, if I want that look. It’s worked well enough for folk, including Little Brother (who turned me on to the idea). One final note, because it’s been bugging me through writing this whole review. What’s up with the name and the funny capitalisation anyway? I keep wanting to flip it around, hoping it’ll make some cutesey or sexy word, but no- Hoedor. Sounds like the name of a place in Middle Earth. Or a dwarven king. Or something.


Review: Captain (including commentary from Little Brother’s Papa) March 22, 2012

Filed under: good vibes,guest reviewer: little brother & his Papa,reviews,toys — Lorax Of Sex @ 1:27 pm

Oh captain… my captain… (yes, this reference will get used more than once in this review, so let’s just come to terms with that right now shall we?). Good Vibrations’ Captain has been hanging around my apartment for some time. I’ve used it as a model for some interesting projects, taken it along as a teaching tool, and sent it home with my Brother. I’ll be honest- I’m more than a bit intimidated by the Captain. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m not a size queen. I don’t immediately go for the largest thing I can stuff up my cunt, and I definitely do not aim high when it comes to trying to fit things in my ass. So when I got the Captain in the mail, boy was I worried when upon taking it out of the box I couldn’t wrap my fingers around the widest point on here. No really, and I have long fingers too.

Once I got over my shock on the size of the Captain (yes, I’d read the specs on it, but that didn’t mean it really computed in my head until I had it cock-in-hand), I was really astounded by what I saw. The Captain has probably one of the best sculpt jobs I’ve seen on a realistic cock EVER. I really do wonder if this was a life-cast rather than a free sculpt. It’s just so well done. Firstoff- the Captain is asymmetrical. If you were to bisect it right down the length, you would end up with two rather different halves. There’s a pronounced bulge to one side. The veins aren’t mirrored on both sides. The frenulum isn’t straight. The corona isn’t perfectly even. These aren’t casting defects, this is how the Captain was made, and I love it. If more cocks were made like this, I’d probably like realistic toys a hell of a lot better than I do.

The Captain is of GoodVibes’ own manufacture. I’m not sure who is doing the fabrication on these, but I’m sure curious. The texture is wonderful for a single-density silicone. Firm but not rock hard, with a soft velvety texture. The only part that is glossy silicone is the flat end on the base. This is probably the least linty silicone toy I’ve come across to-date, and I’ve really put this one through the wringer when it comes to lint collection (a story for another day, but trust me it’ll get told). I feel like if there were any improvements to be made on the texture here, it’s that I want to see what this would be like in dual-density. Oh gd, just thinking about that makes me wonder if we’re on the verge of the awesomest realistic cocks out there. We just might be. Well, except for one thing…

The size. Yes- I’ve tried the Captain (I think I’d risk being keelhauled if I didn’t). No, it didn’t go very well. At 7 1/2″ long and 1 7/8″ wide, the Captain is really asking a lot of me. I can’t say for sure, since I’ve never actually measured any of the real-life cocks I’ve enjoyed, but this certainly FEELS like way too much of a challenge. My vagina is not a happy camper with this much girth at all with this firm of a material. That’s part of why I want to see this in dual-density, that outer squishy layer does amazing things for being able to stuff large things up inside me. For those who love a big cock, or are fans of toys that give a serious sense of fullness? Definitely check it out.

What did the boys have to say? Well…

Captain, my captain! You would think the boy would start getting nervous whenever we get the call that his Big Sister has ANOTHER huge toy for us to review. Good Vibes’Captain was no exception. This was one of the first giant toys passed our way and you should have seen the way his eyes watered! You might begin to think it hurt him, but if you really know the boy you know that joy is usually what makes him cry. Though some of those tears were from pain, that’s because we like things rough. This toy performed well on all fronts: harness, underwear, between my legs, in my hands, and when left alone with the boy. His only real complaint was the rigidity of this form of silicone. Though it is softer than the Tantus Goliath he bought several years ago (one of the largest silicone life-like dildos on the market in it’s time). Captain is slightly larger: 1/8 inches of girth and 1/4 inch in length, but it’s suppleness made it easier to accommodate and that length really makes the difference when thrusting. I complain often that I lose length when using a harness (and could still really use this girthy of toy with a bit more length) but they are getting closer. The realness of the shape of this cock is remarkable and if large, life-like, veiny, cocks are your thing the Captain can take you to shore.

Huge thanks to Good Vibes for making the Captain, and for letting us come aboard. After time with the Captain, I might just have to give the First Mate a go as well, lest I get forced to walk the plank.


Review: Private Silicone Packer March 9, 2012

Filed under: genderbending,reviews,she vibe,toys — Lorax Of Sex @ 1:45 pm

One of my favourite online shops (favourite because they are one of the few places I’ve found that still carry my favourite lube), SheVibe, recently started up a review programme outside of their on-site reviews and I was more than happy to start working with them. I’ve been in contact with them over the past few months about gender expression items, since when I first started shopping with them they didn’t have any and that made me sad. So I was thrilled to see that they not only wanted opinions on a new packer that they were considering carrying, but that it was silicone! That’s been one of my biggest gripes with packers to-date. By and large they’ve been made of less-than durable materials, and definitely not sterilisable materials. Yes- a packer is generally not a fuck-with-it toy, but I still like to have the ability to sterilise all my toys. One never knows what sort of mischief their cock might get into…

There are a number of things I really like about the Private Silicone Packer. It’s silicone. Let me say that again- it’s silicone. I love this about it. To my knowledge this is only the second packer that is made of silicone that is commercially available without special ordering a custom prosthetic from shoppes geared toward transmasculine individuals. Like I said before, I like things being sterilisable, and silicone is that. Prior to the Private, every packy I’ve had has been made of “cyberskin” or some other form of elastomer material. These materials allow for a nice flaccid-cock squooshy feeling, but are not terribly long-lived and are rather porous, to put it mildly.

The design on the Private Silicone Packer is also rather ingenious, I’ve gotta say. The tabbed design above the shaft on the Private means you don’t need a specially designed packy strap or special packing underwear/harness combo to wear the Private. You can wear it easily with any o-ring harness you like. Now personally I prefer underoos or a packing-specific jockstrap for my soft-packing needs, but if you like to use your harness as a jack-of-all-trades as it were, go for it with the Private.

The sculpt on the Private is also pretty unique. It’s got three-dimensional free-hanging balls. The balls are rather slim, and a on the tear-drop/egg-shaped side of the range of testicle shapes, but they’re not too shabby. They are a centre even-hanging pair of balls, so those of you who prefer to dress to the right or the left might have a bit of difficulty with the Private. The sculpt work on the shaft and head aren’t too shabby here either. I find the shaft a bit veiny for a flaccid penis but other than that it’s decently realistic.

Unfortunately, the sculpt on this and the silicone are also probably the biggest downfall of the Private. The silicone is single density standard sextoy silicone, so it’s rather firm. Too firm, in my opinion. I’d love to see this in the softer silicones used for dual density toys, or possibly made dual density all together. As it stands, it’s far too firm to be a flaccid cock, and ends up creating more than just the realistic bulge one generally wants when packing, and crosses the line firmly into erection in your pants land. This wouldn’t be too bad if the curvature of the cock wasn’t so rigidly formed, because then it could become a pack-and-play. Sadly, the materials memory in the curve of the Private is too strong to even hold upright using two hands, let alone trying to do so mid-fuck.

If the Private were made of dual-density silicone, it would be pretty awesome. As it stands, it’s too heavy and too rigid for most soft packing instances. Now, if you’re looking for a packy that’ll give you the look of a hard on in your trousers with the cuckolding effect of being unable to actually fuck anything with your erection? This might just be the packy for you. Overall, I give kudos for the idea, and think it could be a great packy with some tweaks. As it is right now? Not gonna be my go-to soft pack unfortunately.

Huge thanks to SheVibe not only for letting me review this as a precursor to deciding whether or not to carry it, but also for listening to their customers and adding packers and other gender expression resources to their offerings. It is definitely appreciated.


Review: Tantus Cush O2 (by Little Brother & his Papa) November 30, 2011

Filed under: guest reviewer: little brother & his Papa,reviews,tantus,toys — Lorax Of Sex @ 12:57 pm

Remember a while back (ok, it’s been a long time, I know. Bad blogger, no spankings!), I mentioned that there were some guest reviews in the works? Well today I bring you the first of them, by none other than my dear Little Brother and his Papa. I’m very excited to welcome them to the blog, and look forward to their thoughts on toys. I’ll be the first to say that what I like and what Little Brother likes in toys are VERY different things, and when you add the third influence of LB’s Papa into the mix? Things start to get interesting.

I was recently sent a rather lovely box of cocks by Jenn at Tantus, and after we were done giggling over the packets of Dildo Tree seeds (I really need to plant these, but I don’t want to open the packet!) I sent the boys off with a couple of the toys to get their opinions on. It was no coincidence that I sent them off with the largest of the cocks from the box. I am many things, but a connoisseur of fat cocks is not one of them (yet). So, with that, I bring you our very first guest review! (My own review will follow shortly.) ~ Elspeth Demina

Okay, I am officially smitten with this 7-inch cock! But let me back up a bit. When we were first given the Cush for review, I expected it to be lackluster at best to strap-on and take it for a ride. I’ve seen a plethora of “real-feeling” dicks in my day. The size and girth were nothing new, and lord knows the options of pink, blue, and purple were more than a bit stale. Then, I strapped into the Cush for the first time. Now this is the moment my love story begins. I fucked the boy for a good solid two-hours that first night, I frankly didn’t want to stop playing with it. Fitting, for something I expected so little of. The base of the Cush sits so firmly, yet is never noticeable. Since that first run, I have used the Cush in every dildo predicament and it has performed flawlessly. I have used it in my hand, with a strap on, and even just in a pair of boxers. I have fucked in almost every position and in every hole, all outcomes stellar. This is the first cock that just felt natural, I never even think of it as anything other then my cock. I even stayed asleep in the boys ass one night, and slept soundly. My only adjustments would be just one more inch on the length, as strapping-on you lose an inch, and for the love of dicks stop making my color choices reminiscent of easter eggs!
