One of the best parts of writing this blog is that I get to try a lot of products that I wouldn’t normally have access to. I also get to recommend cool things to my friends. That’s why I was super excited when Lovehoney decided to send me the following two products just in time for the holidays. Both of these items are a bit out of the ordinary and would make awesome, affordable stocking stuffers.
The Lovehoney Curved Realistic Sensual Glass Dildo is 8.75 inches long, with 8.56 inches of insertable length. So, this is not a small toy. It’s pleasantly large. It has a slightly curved shaft and bulbous head for g-spot or p-spot stimulation. Because it has a flared base, you can also use it anally. However, because of the length I wouldn’t recommend this for beginner’s anal play.
Overall, I was really impressed with the quality of this toy, especially given the reasonable price point. The glass is super sturdy and soft to the touch. The toy even comes with a soft, velvet carrying case that’s trimmed in a hot pink ribbon tie.
If you’ve never used a glass toy before my advice would be this: a) do it! The sensation feels really different than most other toys and b) use lots and lots of lube. Need some lube suggestions? Any of the ones in my condom and lube sampler pack rock. I’m also a huge fan of Hathor Aphrodisia.
Personally, I really enjoy it when other people use glass toys on me, so the last time I saw the European before he moved away, we experimented with the Lovehoney Curved Realistic Sensual Glass Dildo or as I like to call it “the big icicle penis” with very positive results. The bulbous head feels great against the g-spot, especially when you move it in and out using a circular motion.
In fact, this is such a gorgeous toy that I kind of want to just leave it out on my desk so I can look at it while I work (yes, it stands up on it’s own!) It’s icicle like appearance also makes it perfect for creating sex positive holiday scenes that are sure to alienate your friends and family for years to come. Nope, nothing weird about this. Nothing at all…
Basically, they’re a pair of sheer boy-shorts in the front, and a thong or tenga in the back. Because of the low price point I wasn’t really expecting much from these panties, so I was surprised by how nicely they are made. These unusual knickers are made of very soft, stretchy mesh and lace. The most shocking thing about these Lovehoney Panties: they’re actually really comfortable. I swear to god. The straps that make up the “thong portion” of this garment are so lightweight and soft that you don’t really feel like you’re wearing anything at all.
Plus, if hot pink bows aren’t your jam, you can easily remove it for a more edgy, bondage look (which I think I might do.)
The only downside to these Open Back Sheer Lace Panties is that they don’t have a gusset, so they aren’t ideal for extended wear. Instead, they’re more of a boudoir piece.
Can you tell that Lovehoney is a British company?! I love that the tag says “Knickers” instead of “panties.”
I ended up liking these panties way more than I thought I would. I feel really sexy wearing them, like I have a secret (that secret being, “I’M WEARING CRAZY UNDERWEAR!”) Like the Sqweel, these panties are kind of weird and wonderful. I definitely wouldn’t complain if I found another pair in my stocking this year. Plus, if I don’t wear them, Joe the Intern has already called dibs for his paratrooper practice.
So, there you have it – two sexy, yet unexpected stocking stuffer ideas for couples and individuals alike that are sure at the very least, to put a smile on your face. You can find both items here.
What do you hope to find in your stocking this year?
