Giveaway | Skinny Dip x Crave

On Monday I finished the first draft of my very first book!! I’m so excited. This has been a huge life goal for me for as long as I can remember, so I’m still kind of in shock! (Even typing the last few sentences feels totally surreal!) There’s still a lot to do editing wise, but I’m excited about the rest of the process. So, if you don’t see me online over the next few weeks it’s because I’m working hard at turning this project into something that I can eventually share with you guys.

In the meantime, I’ve collaborated with one of my favourite brands, Crave for an exclusive giveaway.

Crave is about to launch a new first-of-its-kind vibrator and wants to give Skinny Dip readers early access + a chance to win one before they hit the shelves!

The Crave Vesper: Luxury Vibrator & Jewelry in One

On Saturday night I went to a party and wore a vibrator as jewelry – but I’ll get to that in a second.

Those of you who have been reading this for awhile are probably aware of two of my obsessions: gorgeously designed luxury sex toys and equally gorgeous fashion accessories. The Vesper Necklace from Crave combines both of these loves into one stunning product.

If the name Crave sounds familiar, it’s because they are the brainchildren behind one of my favourite sex toys ever, the very sexy and spy-worthy Crave Duet, which I frequently refer to as “The James Bond of Sex Toys.” The San Francisco based company is known for it’s sleek, well-designed, sophisticated toys, so when they kindly offered to send me my very own Vesper Necklace to review, I immediately jumped at the chance.

The Vesper Necklace has everything that I’d expect from a Crave toy. It’s ultra-sleek, stunning and utterly unique with sexy, discreet features that make you feel like you’re living in a spy movie (because what’s more sexy and daring than wearing a secret pleasure device?)

The Vesper Necklace is a luxury vibrator that also doubles as a piece of jewelry. Made of smooth, stainless steel, the Vesper is fully body-safe and features a curved tip designed for precise clitoral stimulation – in public, in private or anywhere in between. It’s fully rechargeable by USB and comes in silver, gold and rose-gold. The top of the vibrator is elegantly engraved with the Crave logo and comes with an attached chain.

3034063-slide-s-vibe-09The Crave Vesper is ultra discrete, and looks more like a piece of chic jewelry than a sex toy. In true spy-like fashion, to charge the device you simply have to unscrew the cap, insert the USB cord and plug it into your computer. Super easy, right?

vibrador-vesper-by-crave-catalogodiseno-10I wear a mix of silver and gold, so I ordered the Vesper in rose gold, because I loved the two-toned look. I’m not quite sure what else to say, except that the Vesper is just as stunning in person as it is in the photos – perhaps more so, because it’s mine…ALL MINE!

The Fun Factory Stronic Eins: It’s Not a Vibrator, it’s a “Pulsator”

For my first review of 2015 I thought I’d start with a toy that’s been on my “sex toy bucket list” since it was released last year. The Fun Factory Stronic Eins is a sex toy that “thrusts” instead of vibrates. Yes, thrusts. Like a real penis. When I found this out I knew I had to try it (I MEAN COME ON. HOW COULD I NOT?) Luckily, the super cool people over at Sex Toys Canada were kind of enough to send me my very own Stronic Eins to review.

Fun-stronic-eins-font-b-nick-b-font-s-top-depth-female-massage-font-b-stick
What you need to know about the Fun Factory Stronic Eins is that it’s a “pulsator” not a vibrator. Instead of vibrating, the Stronic Eins delivers realistic thrusting motions to simulate the feeling of real sex. It’s made of 100% body safe silicone and features a subtly curved shaft with a slight bump near the base designed for clitoral stimulation. It has 10 different thrusting patterns & levels and a very easy to use one-touch on/off button. The toy measures approximately 9 inches in length, however only about 4 inches is actually insertable.

fun-factory-vibrator-stronic-eins--pink
The Stronic Eins is really one of those toys that you have to see in action to believe. So, if you’d like to get a visual of what this toy is all about. Here’s a video from Fun Factory complete with techno beats worthy of a night out with the Jersey Shore cast. The video features some medical style diagrams that may not be safe for work. If you can’t watch the video, just imagine one of those electric knives people use to carve turkeys…with a penis attached. Picturing it? Ok, good.

So, now that you’ve seen the video and maybe danced (fist-pumped?) a bit around your bedroom, you’re probably wondering what the toy actually feels like. The truth is, although I absolutely love the idea of the Stronic Eins (I mean, who wouldn’t want a toy that thrusts on demand?!) my first experience with the toy fell a bit flat.

I love that the toy is made of silky soft silicone and is super easy to use, however even though the toy felt good when inserted, the thrusting motions alone weren’t really enough to get me off. As you’ve probably surmised from my previous reviews I’m a fan of big, powerful toys – especially when they are meant to be inserted. Although the Stronic Eins touts itself as exactly that, it wasn’t quite big or powerful enough for me. Although the Stronic Eins is nice and girthy, with only 4 inches that are actually insertable, it wasn’t long enough or curved enough to really reach my g-spot. That isn’t to say this toy didn’t feel good – it did – it just wasn’t enough to really push me over the edge.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas for The Sexually Adventurous

stocking stuffers

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.

1. Lovehoney Curved Realistic Sensual Glass Dildo ($29.99) – If you’re looking for something totally different for you or your meaningful other(s), why not try a glass dildo like this one?!

52502-5
It’s been a really long time since I reviewed a glass toy, so I thought it would be fun to feature one again. The Lovehoney Curved Realistic Sensual Glass Dildo is a gorgeous piece of erotic architecture made of silky, smooth reinforced glass. One of the nice things about glass toys is that you can heat them or cool them for temperature play. Simply submerge the toy in warm water, or cool it in the fridge for 10 minutes before use. Be sure to test the temperature on your arm, before directing it towards more intimate areas. Because it’s made of nonporous glass, it’s also 100% body-safe and compatible with any lube you choose.

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.

Overall, the  Lovehoney Curved Realistic Sensual Glass Dildo makes a sexy and unexpected gift for couples or individuals who are looking to try something new or have always fantasized about giant icicle penises (hey, I can’t be the only one.)

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…

2. Lovehoney Open Back Sheer Lace Panties with Straps – Exciting news! Lovehoney, the people who made two of my favourite vibrators  have launched their own line of sexy lingerie. They sent me this pair of these open back underwear from their “Love Me” line to share with you guys. Let me just put this out there: I totally get that these underwear are not for everyone. However, I’d never seen anything like them before, so I knew I had to try them.

Review & Giveaway | Win a Revel Body Sol Sonic Vibrator

9b6b315945cca2a88650ac7700658ebd_largeHey guys, do you remember when I reviewed the Revel Body Sonic – that spherical vibrator that looks like an old-school web cam and reminded of what I imagine it would feel like to ride in Larry David’s car? Well, the brainchildren over at Revel Body have come up with an updated version, the Revel Body Sol and there were kind enough to send me one to test drive.

6f41d8ab2a66059a6b770dbd59cec518_large
If you’re unfamiliar with the Revel Body line, you can read my original review here. Like the original, the second-generation Revel Body SOL is a powerful clitoral vibrator featuring TrueSonic technology, perfect for body massage and clitoral stimulation. Roll it on the body or use the vibrating tip, which varies from thumpy and powerful to fast and buzzy. It comes with three redesigned and improved tips for customized performance and a new QuietCore piston for quieter operation. Like the original it’s 100% body-safe.

To summarize, the new Revel Body Sol is stronger, quieter and comes with more goodies.

I had a deep sense of “like” for the original and these new improvements have definitely pushed me over the edge into “love” territory. One of my main complaints about the original was the noise. Although the Revel Body Sol is still far from whisper quiet, the new version sounds less like you’re using a power tool in your bedroom.

Although the original was really powerful in it’s own right, I did notice that the sensations were a bit stronger with the Sol. The rumbly, bouncy, thumpy vibrations are still my favourite and the buzzy ones still do nothing for my clitoris (although, they do feel really nice for massage!) Overall despite looking nearly identical, the Revel Body Sol provides a more powerful, smooth ride than the original.

Revel Body SolHowever, my favourite thing about the Revel Body Sol is that it comes with two different attachments which, previously you had to purchase separately. I love that you can easily remove the smooth pink head and switch things up with different attachments for a completely customized experience. The Revel Body Sol comes with “Fawn” an ultra-soft, brush-like head designed for tickling sensations and “Ever”  which is slightly curved with circular ribbing for extra stimulation. Although I was most curious about the Fawn attachment, it was “Ever” that really won me over. I just feels f*cking awesome, especially when you use it on the rumblier settings. I have no explanation for why it feels so good, other than magic.

Revel BodyOf course, Joe the Intern is still a bit confused and convinced that the Revel Body Sol is in fact, an old school web cam. I discovered this when I found him trying to communicate with a “nice girl” he met from a site called RussianDolls4u.

Revel body sol -2Although Joe is still frustrated with his love life, I’m totally enjoying my experience with the Revel Body Sol. I just love how versatile and different is from any other sex toys I own. The Revel Body Sol is definitely a fun and unique addition to any bedroom arsenal!

If you’re curious about this toy (as you should be), I have some great news: the lovely people at Revel would like to send one lucky reader their very own Revel Body Sol. To enter, leave a comment and follow the prompts below. I’ll pick a winner Tuesday December 16th.
