Review of the Lily Allen Liberty Vibrator by Womanizer

Last month, I had the pleasure of interviewing pop star Lily Allen about her recent collaboration with luxe sex toy brand Womanizer for The Toronto Sun

The result of this partnership is the Womanizer Liberty by Lily Allen – a small, lightweight edition of the classic Womanizer sex toy which uses patented and revolutionary Pleasure Air Technology designed to stimulate the sensitive nerve endings of the clitoris with gentle air waves.

Since the folks at Womanizer sent me my own Liberty by Lily Allen to try, I thought it was only fair that I test the wares and report back. 

It goes without saying that there’s no shortage of options when it comes to the sheer variety of sex toys that are currently available for purchase.

So, when I receive a press release announcing another celebrity sex toy collab I’m naturally a little skeptical (perhaps because I’m still emotionally scared by the Coco & Ice T vibrator and the Nick Hawk Gigolo Dildo). However, I’m excited to share that the Liberty by Lily Allen did not disappoint. 

The Liberty takes everything I love about Womanizer toys and wraps it up in a fun, accessible packaging. The Liberty model comes with a magnetic cap and six intensity levels, simple two-button operation and is feather-light, perfect for travel and discreet in handbags. Oh and those air waves. You simply have to place the toy above your clitoris and the Liberty will literally blow & suck you away to a quick, intense orgasm. 

Made of body safe materials and fully rechargeable, the Liberty is also water resistant. 

While the Liberty doesn’t have as many bells and whistles as some of their Womanizer Premium (which I also own and is fantastic), but in this case I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I love the Liberty because it’s so compact and unlike some of the other models, fits easily in your palm in a way that feels very ergonomic.

It also has incredibly simple and intuitive control buttons that are easy to find and use without having to stop what you’re doing & fumble around. 

 

For these reasons, Liberty is a great entree into the Womanizer line and air pleasure toys in general. 

The only thing I don’t love about the Liberty is the charging situation. As you can see from the diagram below the charging cord attaches magnetically to a port along the curved edge of the toy. You have to lay the toy *just so* in order to ensure the port connects and stays connected, which isn’t always possible when you’re the kind of person who likes to discretely hide their toys away while they’re charging.

I really wish WOW Tech (the parent company of Womanizer) would stop making toys like this. The toys are awesome, but the charging ports are way too finicky for my liking. With that being said, I still really like this toy because of it’s very travel friendly (the magnetic cap is something I didn’t even realize I needed in my life) and easy to use. 

Have you tried the Liberty? What did you think? 

The Womanizer Liberty is available at Lovehoney and retails for $99.99 USD. If you purchase any products through the affiliate links in this post, I may receive a small commission which I will use to buy Joe the Intern more shorts. 

 

 

Eva Couples Vibrator Review + Gift Certificate Giveaway

 

Before I hang up my sex blogging hat for good, there are just a few pieces of housekeeping to look after. As I mentioned when I announced my sex blogging retirement, there are still a few sex toys on my bucket list that I’d like to try and review. One of those toys is the Eva Couples Vibrator.

A good friend of mine has called this toy, “the best sex toy ever” so, naturally I had to try it out. Luckily, the nice people at Excuse Moi kindly offered to hook me up. You can read my review here.

Go F*CK Yourself With The Nooky Box & Emojibator

 

(The photo above, while gorgeous, isn’t mine. It’s artist Krystle Mae Jaramillo posed with her pair of Emojibators. Check out her art here.)

When I announced my semi-retirement as a sex blogger, I made a sex toy bucket list of everything I still wanted to try and write about. One the list: the hilarious & kind of adorable Eggplant Emojibator. I mean, it’s an eggplant shaped a vibrator – it’s basically begging to be written about on Skinny Dip ( and now it seems especially apt since my recent post about creepy sexts).

Well, sometimes the stars just align. Not long after making that list, the fine folks at The Nooky Box reached out to me. The Nooky Box is a sex-positive subscription box that’s delivered every three months. They sent me this quarter’s box which features (you guessed it) the Emojibator!

nooky-box-sex-is-healthy-600x429

The theme of this quarter’s box is “Sex is Healthy.” Nooky Box founder, Meg Ross, said she was inspired to launch The Nooky Box because she wanted to encourage more positive conversations around sex. So, she decided to create a carefully vetted subscription box that helps couples take the guess work out of choosing the right accessories for the bedroom.

Over the past few years I’ve reviewed several adult subscription boxes, so what makes the Nooky Box unique? Meg says, “We carefully vet and choose the products that go into the boxes with the intention of creating an exciting and cohesive sexual experience. We offer a full user experience with toys, Lube, SWAG, a playlist of music and an erotic story.”

Their company philosophy is “YAY SEX!” As Meg explains, “we want our customers to feel good about their intimate relationships” while helping foster a sex positive environment where people can talk about sex openly and honestly. Amen, to that.

Here’s what I found inside my “Sex is Healthy” Nooky Box:

Perfect Fit Ribbed Cock Ring

Durable and comfortable. This ribbed cock ring by Perfect Fit gives stronger long-lasting erections which hopefully will lead to some great orgasms for everyone involved.

Almost Naked Organic Lube

Almost Naked by Good Clean Love is a water-based lube, made with aloe vera and infused with a touch of lemon and vanilla. When I’m not using Hathor/Sutil lube, this is my go-to brand.

Bfit Classic Love Balls

Make kegal exercise fun with The Bfit Classic Ben Wa style exercise balls. I haven’t tried these love balls yet but I love that they’re silicone and look easy to clean.

Pandora’s Pops NookyBerry Aphrodisiac Lollipops

These Nooky Berry Lollipops by Pandora’s Pops are activated with aphrodisiac herbs and essential oils. I’m saving these for a special occasion and/or a really strong sugar craving (hopefully the stars will once again align & I’ll be able to enjoy them with someone else.)

Bonus Stickers, Samples, and Surprises

Each Nooky Box comes with a variety of stickers, samples, and bonus surprises! Plus a printed short Erotica story. One of the bonus surprises: individually packaged intimate wipes – perfect for stashing in your date night survival kit.

& lastly, the piece de resistance…

Eggplant Emojibator

The Eggplant Vibrator by Emojibator provides 10 settings and includes a hard protective case for storage and travel.

The Eggplant Emojibator is basically one big “That’s What She Said” joke waiting to happen. Although I’ve seen plenty of photos of it online, I was shocked to discover that in person it’s much smaller than I thought it would be. In fact, it fits in the palm of my hand.

Whether you’re dick bombing or photographing an eggplant shaped vibrator, let the record show that camera angles and distance matter.

While smaller than I expected, it is cute as hell. The Eggplant Emojibator, along with the other items in the Nooky Box, would make an excellent Bachelorette or sexy wedding shower gift.

(Joe the Intern has already tried to claim it for his own purposes. In his words, “it looks like the perfect item to roast over an open spit. PS. It’s dinner time and I may be hangry.“)

What I liked about my Nooky Box experience:

Minimal packaging

The box that it’s shipped in is the actual Nooky Box. It doesn’t feel quite as luxurious as some of the other subscription boxes (that are literally boxes within boxes), but it’s a lot more environmentally friendly.

Gender neutral design

While I personally prefer the edgy/femine chic aesthetic of the Unbound Box, the design of the Nooky Box is fun, bright and gender neutral which is perfect for couples who are looking for something that’s not overtly feminine or masculine. However, the toys contained within the box are less neutral. In order to make use of all of the products at least one person needs to have a vagina and another a penis.

Full sized products

I love that both the vibrator and the love balls are made of body safe materials by reputable companies. The not-quite-full-sized but still substantial tube of Good Clean Love is also a nice touch & perfect for stashing in a purse or overnight bag!

Overall, I thought the Nooky Box provided a thoughtful, well curated experience and I’m really glad I had a chance to check them out before I officially retired.

Thanks again to The Nooky Box for providing these products free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion. All views are my own because that’s how I roll.

Hold the Schmaltz: a V-Day Guide for Badass Ladies

My name is Simone and I’m a single woman that loves Valentine’s Day. I’m not even sorry about it. Without a partner to attend to, the pressure is off and I sit back, relax and enjoy this special time of year when everything magically colour coordinates with my blog layout.

I’m probably going to spend February 14th curled up in bed eating chocolate and watching Showtime’s The Affair (such. a. good. show.) while toasting to my single status. With that said, when the ladies at Unbound reached out to me about curating another Skinny Dip store on their site, I had to say yes. I love their selection of sexy products for bad-ass babes. Whether you love Valentine’s Day or hate it, are partnered or single, here’s some things that are sure to make life just a little bit more fun.

Screen Shot 2017-02-01 at 5.45.30 PM

1. Sex Position Colouring Book. Playtime for couples? Uh, I’d totally colour this bad boy solo – preferably with a glass of champagne in hand.

2. Twiggy Venus Symbol Earrings.  I’ve been in love with these gorgeous 18K gold plated earrings for a couple of months now. They’re the perfect accessory for surviving the Trumpocalypse. The earrings are part of the Unbound Collection – a modern jewelry collection that transforms into sexual accessories, inspired by Liz Taylor/Cleopatra, Amelia Earhart & Twiggy (and yes, it’s as fabulous as it sounds!)

3. We-Vibe Tango. As I’ve mentioned many times before, this is one of my favourite vibrators. Sure, it’s small and kind of looks like a lipstick, but it packs a lot of punch. I couldn’t not include it on the list.

4.  Couples Adventure Kit. Want to enjoy 14 days of great sex with your partner? This couples adventure kit takes out the guess work, challenging you & your partner to enjoy a bunch of different sexy surprises for two weeks straight. It includes vibrators, lube, a film from Erika Lust and more! If I had a partner, I’d totally give this a try.

Screen Shot 2017-02-01 at 5.29.40 PM

5. Emojibator. My friend Jean brought this to my attention & I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. I have no idea whether it’s actually a good vibrator but the laugh factor makes it worthy of this list. If I was going to buy my single girlfriend a gag gift, it would probably be this.

6. Male Tears Flask. My friend Melissa and I have long joked that we want to get matching engraved flasks, but this is good too. I’ll be drinking out of this flask on Valentine’s Day as a binge on Showtime.

Screen Shot 2017-02-01 at 5.23.41 PM

7. Galentine’s Day Box.  Remember that gorgeous vibrator necklace that I wrote about a few years ago? That’s in here along with everything else you need for a sexy night out on the town as a single lady.

Screen Shot 2017-02-01 at 6.00.07 PM

8. Pretty undies! This is probably the most stereotypical Valentine’s Day gift idea, but what’s different is that these items are actually comfortable. No tightly bound corsets here, folks (but if you’re into that – that’s cool too!) The Provence Robe is a soft and forgiving robe that also comes in plus sizes. The Naughtie Hotpant by Cosabella is a high quality pair of open crotch boys shorts that are ridiculously comfy (who thought this was possible?) Same goes for this ultra-soft Peekaboo Bralette by Hanky Panky. FYI, I purchased my first Cosabella and Hanky Panky pieces over the holidays and it’s been a revelation in comfort and quality.
Screen Shot 2017-02-09 at 12.33.45 PM

9. Love is Art Kit. Even if you think you’ve tried everything in the bedroom, you probably haven’t tried this. Each kit includes everything you need to produce an intimate work of art using nothing more than canvas, paint …and your bodies. I’ll leave it up to you what you’ll say when houseguests compliment your taste in modern art.

To make the dreary month of February a little more bearable, Unbound is offering readers 15% off anything in the store (excluding subscriptions) when you use the code SIMONEVDAY15 until the end of February.

How will you be spending February 14th?

Review of The Womanizer: Great Sex Toy, Terrible Name

Hey, remember when I wrote about dildos all the time? If you’ve been reading for a while, you may have noticed that there’s been a steady drop off of sex toy reviews over the past year. That’s because (following a bout of sex blogger burnout – it’s a thing, really) I made a promise to myself that I’d only review products that are really unique/amazing and/or totally absurd. Well friends, I have a toy that meets all three criteria. Meet the Womanizer W500: an amazing clitoral stimulator that just happens to have the worst name ever. The lovely folks over at Lovehoney sent me one for review and I’m actually super excited to share my findings with you.

02682763-97b4-4727-8318-986a71d35087.jpg._CB273847983_

Before I get started on the review, let’s take a moment to address the obvious:

  • The name is bad. Really, really bad. When I hear the word “womanizer” I think of some middle-aged white man who enjoys stepping out on his wife/girlfriend with Becky from accounting and Rhonda from marketing, while also furiously swiping on Tinder during bathroom breaks. We’ve all met this guy – maybe we’ve even been groped by him in the copy room – he’s a total dick and doesn’t deserve to have an orgasm machine named after him.
  • The design is a weird mix of Jersey Shore meets Golden Girls. There’s skulls. There’s leopard print. There’s lace. Any of these options look like they could be found in the nightstands of Snooki or Blanche (I like the think Rose favours the rose motif like I do. It’s weirdly feminine in a “I’m a 50+ year old from South Florida” so, just my style.) Each Womanizer comes encrusted with a Swarovski crystal – something I never needed or wanted from a vibrator and still don’t.

110f9fbf-8f9a-4072-bd61-c459f746a34e.jpg._CB273848024_

Ridiculous name and packaging aside, there’s a lot to love about the Womanizer. First of all, to quote Wayne’s World, “it certainly does suck.” Yes, the Womanizer uses suction – not just vibrations – to get you off. The Womanizer sucks and flutters your clitoris resulting in very quick, very powerful orgasms.

Screen Shot 2017-01-22 at 8.59.02 PM

The Womanizer fits in your hand is made of 100% body safe materials with a silicone head that you can remove & clean after play. Press the crystal button to turn on/off and use the controls below to cycle through the different intensity settings. It’s also rechargeable – always a plus.

Already in it’s second iteration, the Womanizer has developed cult like popularity. Oh Joy Sex Toy’s Erica Moen describes it, as a “tiny clit blowjob machine” and says “it forces your clit to get a raging erection without the usual arousal lead up, it’s the closest I’ve ever empathized with having a spontaneous teenage boner.” (awesome image below via Oh Joy Sex Toy.) 056c026d-1c66-4d42-9fae-a8e96df290c5-1020x8541

And she’s right. This toy feels like nothing else I’ve ever tried. Because of this, it also takes a bit of getting used to. Unlike other clitoral stimulators, you have to place the head so that it surrounds your clitoris. I found this toy worked best for me while I was laying on my back, but you might have to play around a bit until you find exactly the right position (FYI, Elle Chase and Sunny Megatron did an awesome video review where they address this exact issue. It’s a must-watch if you’re considering this toy.)

Once you get used to it though, whoa. This toy delivers.

Even on the lowest setting, this toy is able to make me orgasm in about 30 seconds.

In fact, if you’re looking for a lengthly build up to your orgasm, don’t look to this toy. The Womanizer is more of a wham, bam, thank you ma’am kind of deal – at least it was for me. And boy, is it delightful.

The end verdict: I love the Womanizer. I’ve found myself reaching for it often over the past six months and it’s since become one of my go-to toys. The quality is excellent and it feels fucking fantastic.

However, here’s a few things to consider:

  • If you don’t like a lot of direct clitoral stimulation, this might not be the best toy for you. If you think this might be an issue, I would suggest reading Jo Ellen’s post about her experience with the Womanizer. I personally enjoy direct clitoral stimulation and usually crank my toys to their highest settings, but I actually prefer the Womanizer on it’s lower to mid-range settings. I find the higher settings are just too intense for me.
  • It’s not the quietest of toys. It doesn’t sound like a chainsaw, but it’s also not whisper quiet.

Would I recommend this toy? Definitely. After trying a heck of a lot of toys over the past 6 years, the Womanizer really does offer a unique experience. As long as you like the idea of having your clit directly stimulated, enjoy quick, powerful orgasms & are willing to play around with the positioning of the toy, I think you’ll love this one two.

My first review of 2017: two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Sexy Valentine's Lingerie
