Joque Harness by SpareParts

2 comments
My second skin, my love, my favorite harness over every one out there, is my Joque harness by SpareParts. I've had this harness for quite a long time, and it's never failed me, or my play partners. For someone who has the same problem that I have with their anatomy, this harness is perfect—it's easy to forget that you're wearing it, which is great when you're just trying to make love without the feel of wearing a "harness and dildo."

SpareParts makes their harnesses out of a spandex/polyester blend that feels great against the skin. It's breathable, and moves with the body, instead of feeling tough, firm, or starchy, like some leathers or rubbers can feel. This also means that it's washable, and can be put in the laundry after getting it dirty. Just don't put it into the drier, because that might mess up the spandex and make it start pilling (like a bathing suit would).

Make sure to wash the Joque before putting a dildo or prosthetic in it, as the tag suggests! The dye can rub off and stain your dildos, so do follow the suggestion for washing.

I bought my Joque (I'll call it "my love" from now on, if you don't mind) in the black option, because I felt that it was most fitting. Over at Edenfantasys, it's offered in a baby pink and baby blue, which are both extremely cute and attractive. I was actually thinking of buying the baby blue, but decided on the black instead. Since it's spandex, it almost has a sheen to it that gives it this wet look.

Which reminds me...you can wear my love (or your love, if you decide to buy this beauty) in the water, so go ahead and have fun in the shower, in the pool, in the bathtub, or in the jacuzzi. This is great if you enjoy having sex in the shower, and or even if you like to hop in to have some "clean-up" sex.

My love is a double-strap harness, meaning that it has two straps that come between the legs and tighten around the thighs, under the tush. Another strap sits around the hips, and this strap has a fairly thick width. It can fit a wide range of individuals, short or tall, big or small, but if you have hips that are over 44", you may want to instead purchase the large size, as that will fit better.

Since it's a double-strap harness, you have access to all of those special parts—the tush and whatever you have in the front. This is great if you like double-penetration toys like the Nexus or Share, or if you like to wear butt plugs during harness play. It's even good for those who have partners that like to play with them as they're being penetrated. Personally, I just like it because it's easier to wear—and because it's not a thong.

You can fit a good amount of dildos in this second skin because of its stretchy, built-in o-ring, which is great because you can switch it up every time that you have sex without having to change o-rings. Though it's described as being very stretchy, it's actually not, but it does have a bit of flexibility to it. You can safely fit dildos of up to about 2" in diameter, if you really stuff them in, and dildos as small as an inch in diameter, so long as the attachment has a big, sturdy base.

If you haven't noticed, I love my Joque harness. It's the best decision that I made, purchasing this wonderful harness. It's going to last me the rest of my life, and quite honestly, I'll never need to buy another harness, ever—why would I want to, when my love has always been there for me, and always will be? Nothing can compare—unless, you know, I decide to get a bit unfaithful and go to Joque's twin brother, Theo.

Note: Joque comes in a plastic packaging that's not resealable, but it also comes with a pouch that has a drawstring. I keep my love in the pouch, on a shelf, when I'm not wearing it.

Are you interested in owning a love, companion, and lifetime harness of your own? Head on over to Edenfantasys, where you can purchase the Joque for about $90. When you think of what you're getting, it's worth the money—all ninety dollars of it. Remember to enter my partner code B5P at checkout for a 15% discount, to save yourself a few bucks! Enjoy!

Purr by Tantus

2 comments

Tantus's Purr is going to make you "purr" by brushing and rubbing against that special spot every time you thrust it. Its curve is perfect for internal stimulation, either anally or vaginally, and the ribs along its shaft intensify that orgasmic feeling. This 100%, medical grade silicone dildo is well-priced, average-sized, made by a reputable company, and being sold at my favorite sex toy shop.

The dildo comes in three colors: a metallic purple, a pearly white, and a sweet baby pink. Edenfantasys graciously sent me the purple color, which is absolutely lovely (and it was actually my favorite of the three). It's got this gorgeous sheen to it and an almost marble-like coloring. It comes packaged in a regular plastic box—nothing special to it, really. It's a bit bulky, and does not have much information (though it does include some care information) so I personally put it in the recycling bin and I now keep my Purr on a shelf.


As you can see, Purr comes with a little bullet, one-speed vibrator. The vibrations are very steady, and fairly strong when standing alone, but when slipped into Purr (which I recommend dabbing a bit of lubricant into the hole before putting the vibe in), the vibrations become diffused throughout the dildo, but are still felt. It works off of three watch batteries (the ones that came with it did not work) and it is not loud at all.

Purr starts out with a rounded, smooth head, and at about 1½" down its length, the ribbing starts. Each of the ribs is smoothed over, so they can be felt as ribbing, but you do not get those hard-to-clean ridges like on other toys (this makes it great for anal use—any mess is cleaned very easily). If a lot of texture is not your thing, then Purr certainly should not be put in your order—this kitty is extremely textured, and its texturing is intense.


The dildo has a total length of 6½", which is a substantial length, and a diameter of 1½", which is also fairly sized. This is not a good size for size queens, but people who enjoy average (or a little above average) toys will like Purr because it's not an "overfilling" size, but it's instead "just right." I personally love the size (though I expected it to be a bit smaller), and I'm glad that it's the size that it is because it's a good toy to use with a partner for work up to the "main event."


Purr is excellent at g- or p-spotting because it has a subtle curve at the head. The head is slightly firmer in texture than the rest of the dildo, so this makes it excellent at giving pressure to those spots. I would not describe the shaft, however, as a very firm silicone—I found it to be fairly plush when squeezed, and it can be bent completely in half. I really like the texture actually—it's a lot less firm than my silicone plugs and other dildos.

Since the toy has a base (that's 2¼" across), it can be used safely anally without the worry of "losing" it. It can also be used in a harness, though it is a bit floppy if used with a ring that's too big. I put it in my Joque (my love) and it hung down because it was not tightly secure against my body. On the base is Tantus's logo, which cannot be felt whatsoever during penetration; it is cute though.


Purr, as I said before, is made of 100% silicone (one of my favorite materials). It's an extremely safe toy that can be shared between partners and in all orifices, so long as it's sanitized and cleaned between uses. It can be fully sanitized by boiling for three minutes, cleaning with a 10% bleach solution, or even by being put in the dishwasher.

Purr's a really cute, average-sized dildo that's good for most people accustomed to texture or who are wanting to try it out. Since it's not big, it's good for experimentation both with ribbing and with g- or p-spotting because of its nice curve. I really love this dildo, and am glad that I was sent it for review—Tantus is a great company, and I cannot wait to get more from them soon.

You can purchase this lovely Purr dildo over at Edenfantasys for $55. If you'd like to get 15% off your total order, you can enter my partner code "B5P" at your checkout. Don't hesitate to add in a good lubricant for free shipping, and to help your new Purr dildo slip in a bit easier.

Speeding Bullets Armor Piercing by Evolved

0 comments
A cute little vibrator that packs a strong punch, the Armor Piercing bullet from Evolved's Speeding Bullets line of vibrators is one of the most intense bullets that I've ever held. It has quite a few different pulsation settings, all of which are extremely strong, and two regular buzzing settings, that are supposed to be "soft" and "strong," but I find that they're more like "strong" and "holy shit that's strong." The vibrators come in a variety of colors, mine being pink.




You'd like to read a more in-depth review? By following this link, you can read mine over at Edenfantasys. If I've made you interested, you can buy these and more vibrators over at my favorite online sex toy store, where they're selling for $17.

Dark Wood with Mother of Pearl Paddle

3 comments
I bought this paddle quite a long time ago at a little Asian store around the area. They have a lot of wonderful things there, and I used to constantly go there to buy my staple foods: Pocky, udon noodles, and jelly juice. One day, I saw this little (actually, it's fairly long) thing hanging up. I fell in love with it. The wood is a darker, mohogany wood and the mother of pearl accents are a beautiful touch. Here are some pictures of it.




Starburst Fantasy Feather by Sportsheets

1 comments
Even though ticklers are very simple, soft, and tend to be one of the lightest toys that can be used for introductory sensation play, I still have this love for them, regardless of my status of being an extreme sadist. They're just so sensual and cute, and they can be used in a variety of ways to tantalize and tease a partner. When I saw Sportsheets' Starburst Fantasy Feather tickler, and its price, I immediately wanted to buy it—honestly, how can you go wrong for $9?

The tickler came to me regularly packaged in Edenfantasys' discreet shipping box, but with a cardboard tag wrapped around the plastic. The tag did give some good ideas on how to use the tickler, like tracing the partner's body with it, blindfolding them and playing a guessing game of traced letters. It does not give any care instructions, but I found that to be alright, as my ticklers do not generally get dirty.


The feathers are surprisingly long at 7", and the total length of the shaft and handle of the tickler fairly short at 15 3/8". It's a very easy-to-manage tickler because of its size, and it's not intimidating, which is good for people new to sensation play. It's very simply designed—the shaft and handle are both made of a black plastic, glued together strongly. Considering the fact that the tickler will only be used for sensation play, and nothing rough, the tickler should hold up to most anything. The end of the handle is rounded off to make it comfortable to grip.

I will note here that the handle is 3½" in length, making it extremely short. Even though it's short, it does not make it difficult for those with larger hands to hold, simply because the entire thing is plastic.

Where the feathers are attached is another plastic piece (I'll call it a cap) that keeps all of the feathers together. They are glued into the cap, held together very sturdily. None have fallen out (though some little feather bits have floated off of the feathers), and I doubt that they will unless intentionally pulled on.


I bought the brown option, not only because is it a more natural coloring, but because it has this sprinkling of aqua throughout its feathers. The feathers have variation of light tan, white, black, brown, aqua, a sheen green, and grey. The combination of these colors works wonderfully. It's not dyed in any way, and it's not synthetic—it looks realistic, and though that might be off-putting to people who prefer vegan products, it is really beautiful.


At the base of the feathers are short, fluffy feathers, and the rest of the longer, smoother feathers are sprouting from the middle. It really does look like a starburst—if you hold the tickler straight up, all of the feathers curve out from the middle like a burst, or fireworks.

If the tickler ever becomes dirty, making a soft washcloth or paper towel slightly damp, then wiping the feathers with the grain should clean off anything. After cleaning the tickler, leave it out to dry thoroughly. Using a hairdryer on low power with cold air should work well to dry it, too.

So, for $9, does this little tickler do its job of making a partner's skin crawl in anticipation? Yes, it most certainly does. My favorite places to brush the tickler over are the stomach, back, bottom, and thighs. They're just such nice areas, because they are so sensitive. For individuals with penises, I definitely recommend running the feathers along the individual's shaft—it feels extremely good. The only thing that I do not recommend doing is dusting with this tickler, simply because it cannot be cleaned easily and you do not want to get it dusty. I mean, yes, it works well for dusting, but keeping it for sensual play is a better idea.

I am glad that I bought this tickler, not only because of its price, but because the feathers are so smooth and soft—they really do an excellent job at raising goosebumps. The feathers are absolutely luxurious, and it's just damned adorable and pretty. I love the softness of using a tickler, and the Starburst Fantasy Feather tickler gives that, and gives it well.

Interested? You can by your own over at my favorite sex toy shop for $9. They also sell great BDSM products, like cuffs, blindfolds, and floggers to get all of those "kinks" out. At the checkout, you can enter my partner code B5P for 15% off your total order!
