For today's review I'll be looking at Yooo by Fun Factory. As always, click any image to see a larger version! Note: throughout this review I'll be linking to, as more of y'all are from the US, though there is also a Canadian version here

Different Views:

The Yooo is an awesome toy. It's particularly adorable, and slightly reminiscent of Mickey Mouse with two different sized ears, making it a very non-threatening vibrator. As you can see mine is in a gorgeous orange- my favorite color Fun Factory does- though you can also get this toy in light pink or dark blue. This vibrator is made of squishy silicone, so you only want to use water-based lubes with it. It has two motors, giving it more power than your run-of-the-mill external vibrator. Yooo's also fairly quiet, it's a shade louder than a cell phone's vibration, but it probably won't be heard behind a closed door. It uses, and comes with a, click'n'charge- a magnetic Fun Factory charger that many of their recent toys use. The first charge can take up to twelve hours, mine took six, but following charges are much quicker. I tend to keep my Yooo partially charged so filling it up only takes an hour. It is slightly annoying to charge since it doesn't want to lay perfectly flat so the charger could match up well.  This vibe also has Fun Factory's Loop/Magic Touch, so the control circle lights up when you touch it- a very useful feature for playing in the dark. Yooo has seven different vibration speeds, and three different patterns. The asterisk can be pressed for a little boost in vibration, or held down to activate the vibration patterns. 

Yooo encourages experimentation due to its unique shape, and certainly has a little learning curve for holding it. I preferred using Yooo externally to stimulate either my clit and pubic mound, or my clit and perineum. It can be used vaginally, and has a nice pop, though for myself the second ball just missed my clit when inserted, and I wanted it to go deeper. I would not recommend using this toy anally as it doesn't have a base. Holding this toy tended to numb my fingers due to it's power, but it can be used without hands if you can stretch a pair of underwear or make a rope harness. It also doubles as great body massager.

If you're not into pinpoint vibrations, this may be the vibrator for you. Or if you want a small, powerful, rechargeable and fairly quiet toy, the Yooo is a great investment. Also, as it is rather cute, safe, nonthreatening toy, I would highly recommend Yooo as a first vibrator.

Chiffon and Faux Leather Cami Set

For today's review I'll be looking at the Chiffon and Faux Leather Cami Set by Dreamgirl. As always, click any image to see the full version!



Best View:

To start with, the name of this outfit seems a little ridiculous as the outfit is labeled as 100% polyester. Moving on from that, this outfit consists of a peasant style top with four front buckles securing it, a sheer thong, and a neckband. The back of the top is sheer, as are the sleeves. The faux leather straps for the front-closure buckles don't feel very durable. Also the faux leather panels are only in the front. There are mini ribs going down the bottom half to make the top appear like an under-the-bust corset. These ribs are just decorative though, and don't hold you in. There is a helpful strap between the shoulder cuffs to keep them in place. The sheer thong is labeled as a one-size, and is a shade smaller than I would expect. Generally though, it's a decent polyester thong- it has a mini pantyliner and the back is wide enough to not encourage wedgies. The neckband is a pink ribbon with a front buckle that matches the top. As this is ribbon, it becomes crinkled rather easily. Also the buckle is decorative, and the ribbon has to be tied. All together, these make for a pretty rather soft and feminine set. 

This outfit should be hand washed in cool water and tumble dried on low. It also comes on a basic plastic hanger. This set should work better for less curvy bodies, and if you're curvy you may want to order a size up. There also isn't any chest support. Unfortunately there are currently only three sizes offered- S, M, L. On top of that, besides the buckles having three holes, this isn't adjustable. This would be a really cool piece if it was made of sturdier materials. As is, it can be a fun surprise for an evening, but I wouldn't anticipate wearing it lasting long.

Happy Rabbit Natural

For today's review I'll be looking at the Happy Rabbit Natural Rechargeable Silicone Vibrator by Lovehoney. Click any of the photos to see their full versions.



If you're looking for a traditional rabbit vibrator, you may notice that the market is flooded with porous toys. These require condoms when sharing, and cannot be completely disinfected or boiled. So off the bat, the Happy Rabbit Natural, made of nonporous silicone, has an advantage over those rabbit vibes. There are also two other versions of this toy, one with a lip for g-spot stimulation and another with a more realistic shape. The exclamation mark controls the vibration speeds and turns the toy on and off. The long part of the exclamation mark cycles through the shaft's three different speeds and two vibration patterns. The exclamation point controls the rabbit, which has three different vibration speeds. You can have just the ears vibrating, or the shaft, or various combinations of the two. The shaft is on the smaller side, at a bit over five inches.

I preferred the second vibration pattern, which alternates using the motor at the base of the vibrator with the one on the tip for two short bursts, and a slightly longer burst. All together there are three motors in this vibe, with the third in the rabbit, making this a powerful rechargeable vibrator. For it's power, it's also rather quiet. For some this may be the perfect rabbit vibe: powerful, quiet, and rechargeable.

Personally, the Happy Rabbit Natural just missed the spot. I find this toy a ton of fun if I've already warmed up, or if I've covered the toy's shaft with Sliquid's Stimulating O Gel. It doesn't work well as a start up toy for myself as once I have the shaft where I want it, the ears end up at the root of my clit rather than on it, and the nose doesn't quite hit my clit either. If I'm already aroused though, the ears' indirect stimulation is nice though my focus is largely on the shaft. I would actually prefer this vibrator just without the rabbit, as the shaft is super awesome. The gentle curve makes g-spot stimulation possible, and when aroused it vibrated against my g-spot nicely. The base is rather awkward to hold, and it does need to be held. There is also a seam that runs down the middle of this toy, I couldn't feel it but especially sensitive users may be able to.

This toy can be cleaned with hot water and soap or a toy cleaner. As this vibrator is made of silicone, it cannot be used with silicone lubes as the silicone will eat itself. This is a nonporous toy, and doesn't have any odor. All in all, I would recommend this to people who want a body safe traditional rabbit vibe, who have shorter vaginal canals, or who are new to toys.

Bruiser the Fusion

For today's review, I'll be looking at Bruiser the Fusion by Bad Dragon. Bad Dragon creates fantastic toys for furverts and/or people who want unique toy shapes. Click any of the images to see a larger version!


Size Comparison:

Bruiser is my first Bad Dragon dildo, and it's a pretty awesome part canine part dragon hunk o' silicone. You can configure your own toy and determine its size, firmness, if you want cum tube and/or suction cup, and color. This dildo is a medium, and Bruiser's dimensions are below along with those for the other sizes. The medium is slightly larger than your average dildo or human's penis. The small is closer to average, and a recommended place for those just starting out. The large and extra large are for the extra-daring and extra-stretchy.
Dimensions (inches)SmallMediumLargeExtra Large
Diameter of Head1.501.902.402.85
Circumference of Head4.505.507.008.50
Diameter of Shaft1.451.752.202.60
Circumference of Shaft5.
Diameter of Knot2.152.803.504.25
Circumference of Knot6.508.2510.5012.50
Usable Length6.007.509.2510.75
Total Length7.759.2511.5013.50

Firmness is up next, with soft, medium, firm and splits. Splits have a different firmness for the shaft versus the base; the split soft for example has the shaft in soft and the base in medium. I went with a medium, and it's super squishy but firm enough for no difficulties during insertion. If I had gotten a small Bruiser, then I probably would have preferred the firm level so that the ribs were more defined. However, as the medium size is pretty large for myself, the squish allowed for it to fit comfortably. There are also sample discs to see which firmness you like best.

Cum tubes can be added to any size above a small for simulating ejaculation. Any toy with a cum tube also comes with their Cumlube and a syringe. The next optional addition is a suction cup, and I highly recommend this. Besides making cool double dragon cock photos with a mirror, it becomes very helpful if your wrist becomes tired of thrusting. I found during any session that involved rapid thrusting my wrists would become tired, and the dildo began to really feel heavy. On the flip side, during sessions that were more focused on trying to take the entire dildo, I tended not to use the suction cup. The suction cup is concave and slight, so it doesn't diminish the aesthetic appeal. 

Finally, there's the color selection. There are a few of the colors specifically for Bruiser, standard colors, and then pretty much whatever you want. For custom colors you can do solid, marbled, fades, highlights, glow in the dark, metallic, and split colors. My Bruiser is a custom split fade, with a dark purple base, light blue shaft, and soft purple fade. On this thread there are plenty of custom color designs and examples if you're looking for ideas. There's also a surprise me color option, in case you can't make up your mind or really do want to be surprised.

I found this dildo to be mostly awesome. Knotting (taking the large bump before the base) this dildo continues to be an enjoyable challenge. I don't ever use this dildo casually, perhaps if I had gotten the small this would have been possible as knotting would have been easier. Using the shaft before the knot is fun, but certainly not substantial. Though the tip looks pointy, it doesn't feel that way as it's so squishy, and makes insertion a breeze. When fully inserted the tip rested against my cervix and wasn't irritating. As this dildo was so squishy though, I didn't really feel the ribs. Thrusting pre-knot worked especially well because of the knot pressing up against my vulva, and the weight of the dildo made for more effective thrusts. Once knotted, there wasn't much room for me to thrust quickly. Since there is quite a hefty base on this toy, it's completely safe for anal use, and can be used in any stretchy harness.

This dildo is made of silicone, so you want to use a water-based lube. It's also a lint magnet, so using saran wrap after washing will keep it clean longer. For cleaning you can run it through the dishwasher, boil it for five minutes, or hand wash it with soap and warm water. All in all, this is a lovely dildo for getting down to business and snuggling.

Holy Water Lube

For today's review, I'll be looking at Holy Water Lube by Divine Interventions. Click either of the images to see a larger version!

Close Up:

This is the third, and final, item of the divine trinity I was sent to review. This slippery water-based lube made both God's Immaculate Rod and the girthy Devil feel right at home quickly. I found this lube worked far better for internal play than external. When used externally, the lube got a little too tacky too quickly for me. If this happens you can add more lube to strengthen it, or use a little water to wake it back up. This is a rather thin lube, so I wouldn't recommend it for anal as you may want a little more cushion. For vaginal use, with toys and/or people, this lube worked wonderfully. It didn't become tacky when used internally due to vaginal moisture, and as it's a thin lube, it could easily make a lot of surface area slippery with just a little lubricant.

Holy Water Lube comes in a flip-top four ounce bottle, with a few cheeky phrases. This lube is rather light in scent and flavor, overall I didn't find it pleasant or unpleasant, the scent vaguely smelt like mixing a plant with baby powder. As a water-based lube, this will not stain clothes, and is safe on any sex toy material. It also works fine with latex, and is pure vegan. For safety this lube doesn't have any parabens or glycerine; though if you still have an allergic reaction, you should discontinue use.

Ingredients: Water, Propanediol (Natural Humectant), Cellulose Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic Acid, Phenethyl Alcohol, PPG-2 Methyl Ether, Methylisothiazolinone, Alcohol, Lycium Barbarum Fruit Extract, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Extract, Sodium Hydroxide

This certainly isn't the best water-based lube on the market, but it is functional and in its adorable container would make for a fabulous gift. If you're already getting one of their toys it's definitely worth adding to your basket.
