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.

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!

My Top 10 ‘Must Have’ Sex Toys

TOP 10 SEX TOYSFriends are always asking me for sex toy recommendations, so I thought I would put together a list of my favourite toys in my collection. These are the sex toys that I reach for again & again, and confidently recommend to friends. I hope you enjoy!

(BTW, I loathe batteries, so all of these toys are fully rechargeable.)

top 10 -11. The We-Vibe Touch – When it comes to small clitoral vibrators, I consider the We-Vibe Touch the gold standard. I happily recommend this toy to everyone, because I feel like it’s a toy almost anyone could enjoy. Ergonomically designed so it fits perfectly in the palm of your hand, the We-Vibe Touch offers a really great range of vibrations – from delicate and teasing to really intense. You can use the flexible tip for pin-pointed stimulation or the larger surface for all over vibration. For people who’ve never used a vibrator, the We-Vibe Touch is a great place to start. I reach for this one often for both solo and couples play! (original review)

Top 10 - 32. The Body & Soul Lover by Cal Exotics – For someone who is looking to purchase their first rabbit vibrator, the Body & Soul Lover is my go-to recommendation. It’s small and non-intimidating and yet, it seems to hit all of the right spots (even for someone like me who tends to prefer larger toys.) I’ve recommended this toy to several readers with lots of positive feedback. (original review)

Top 10-73. The Lelo Insignia Soraya – I debated whether to include this luxe rabbit vibrator on this list. Even though it’s my favourite, a huge part of the reason I love it so much is because it fits my body absolutely perfectly. My g-spot is located fairly far back and the Soraya’s long, straight shaft with a slightly flared head hits it like no other toy I own (every. single. time.) I also love that the clitoral arm is super flexible, making it easy to control the amount of pressure on your clitoris. Oh and it’s a totally gorgeous toy, which also doesn’t hurt. (original review, toy available here)

Top 10 -64. The Crave Duet – I’ve referred to this sleek and tiny vibrator as the James Bond of sex toys because it’s one sexy and sophisticated little beast. I love how the flexible arms surround my clit – leading to mind blowing orgasms every, single time. The fact that you can “dismantle” this toy and easily travel with it, makes me feel like I’m carrying around my very own sexy, spy-worthy secret weapon. (original review)

Top 10 -85. The We-Vibe Tango – When it comes to tiny bullet vibrators, the We-Vibe Tango blows everything else out of the water. Made of hard, shiny plastic that easily transmits vibrations, this bullet is ridiculously intense for it’s tiny size. If you enjoy powerful clitoral stimulation, this is a fun one for couples play or for those times when time is scarce and you just want to have an orgasm, like, right now. (original review)

Top 10 -116. Lelo Ina – This stylized rabbit  is not for the faint of heart. The curved shaft presses on your g-spot while equally curved arm presses on your clitoris. Combine these two features with strong, rumbly vibrations and you have a very intense experience. The first time I used this toy I felt like I had stars and rockets and sparkly unicorns shooting out of my vagina. This toy is a lot of fun, but not recommended for first timers or anyone who doesn’t like really intense pressure & stimulation on their clitoris. (original review)

Top 10 -27. The Jimmyjane Form 2 – Similar to the Crave Duet, the Jimmyjane Form 2 has two “arms” or “rabbit ears” that can be used to surround your clit and powerful, intense vibrations. Use the “ears” to hug your clit, or the tips of the ears for pinpointed stimulation – either way, this is a great clitoral vibe for people who like their vibrators powerful, rumbly and compact. (original review)

Top 10 -108. Lelo Mona – Mona was the first luxury vibrator I ever purchased and she remains one of my  favourites to this day. The Lelo Mona has a similar g-spot friendly shape to the Lelo Ina, minus the clitoral arm. You can use it internally or externally, making it a versatile (and oh so pretty) addition to your toy chest. (original review, toy available here.)

Top 10 -99. The Lovehoney Happy Rabbit – Looking to upgrade your old rabbit vibrator with something luxurious, effective and affordable? Like toys that are on the slightly larger side? Meet the Love-honey Happy Rabbit. You’re welcome. (original review)

Top 10 - 510. The Sqweel Go – I love this little guy. I don’t reach for this toy all the time, but when I do I always enjoy the experience. It’s small, affordable and just so different. The Sqweel Go is a great addition to your bedroom arsenal if you already have a few toys and want to mix things up.

Honourable mentions:

The Revel Body Sonic: Like the Sqweel, this one is so different in a weird and wonderful way that I find myself playing with it quite a bit lately. (original review)

The Jopen Vr12: In case you haven’t noticed, I love a good rabbit vibrator. This one has a shaft that rotates. Yes, rotates. Need I say more? (original review)

Now that I’ve shared mine, what are your favourite toy(s)?

Review | The Sophie B ‘Underlying Secrets’ Bra & Panty

The Sophie B 'Underlying Secrets' Bra & Panty

When a bra says it has “Underlying Secrets” – I’m interested. This is how I ended up getting my hands on this super cute bra and panty set by Sophie. B. When I mentioned I was interested in investigating this lingerie set, the awesome people over at Lovehoney hooked me up and now I’m here to share my thoughts.

sophie b bra and panty set
Like a lot of the lingerie brands I review, this was my first experience trying anything from the Sophie. B range. So, I was both curious and not sure what to expect. This set comes in two pieces: the “Underlying Secrets” push up bra ($28.95) and the matching thong ($12.95) I thought the set looked really cute in the photos, so I was happy when it arrived and was just as cute in person.

The Sophie B underwear 'Underlying Secrets' Bra & PantyNow, let’s start by talking about the bra. The Underlying Secrets Push-Up bra is your standard underwire push-up bra. It’s made of black spandex with polka dot mesh and lace overlay, and trimmed in hot pink piping. I like that it’s feminine and girly without being  over the top. It looks cute on and definitely gives you boobs a nice lift. Read: this bra will give you cleavage. Lots and lots of cleavage.

However, I have some issues with the sizing: this bra is only available in four different sizes. Because they didn’t have my exact size, I ordered my “sister size” (36C) So, although it fit in the cups, the band was a bit too wide for me. Also, I found the straps a little on the thin side. I have heavy breasts so I prefer to have sturdier straps, so that I feel really supported.

I noticed that there was a bit of frayed lace on the seam that connects the straps to the bra. This isn’t a structural issue – the bra won’t spontaneously self-destruct while you’re wearing it. I trimmed the lace and stitched it down myself just so that it wouldn’t fray anymore. However, compared to the Blue Bella Millie Bra which is absolutely beautifully detailed and is at a similar price point, this seemed like a bit of an oversight.

sophie b 5There’s also a heck of a lot of padding. This could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your needs. Personally I don’t need this much padding. I’m already a 32DD, so wearing this bra kind of made me feel like I was walking around with two giant grapefruits strapped to my chest (I think this is the bra’s “underlying secret.”) However, I could see how this would be a great bra for someone who is looking to enhance their bust.

With that said, I did wear this bra out on Halloween underneath my Princess Caroline costume and can honestly say that it’s surprisingly comfortable (despite the size being slightly off.)

Lingerie review of The Sophie B underwear 'Underlying Secrets' Bra & PantyI have no complaints about the thong. The “Underlying Secrets” thong is great. It’s made of the same materials as the bra, is comfortable and washes well if you put it in a lingerie bag.

I like this lingerie set, however I’m not in love with it. If you can find your exact bra size, the Underlying Secrets Push-Up bra is a cute option for someone who is looking for a budget friendly padded push up-bra & thong set.

However, if you want to see what lingerie I am in love with, I would suggest checking out the BlueBella line (especially since there’s a bunch of stuff on sale right now!) The Blue Bella Millie Bra is still one of my favourite lingerie pieces I’ve reviewed in 2014. Another favourite is the Oh La La Cheri Black Lace Chemise (awesome quality, beautifully detailed, fits great) I’ve loved everything I’ve tried from Oh La La Cheri and they have some seriously sexy pieces!

Thanks again to Lovehoney for facilitating this review! I received these products free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion. All views are my own because that’s how I roll. PS. Make sure you check out Lovehoney’s Black Friday sale – there’s tons of good stuff!

Review | Introducing the Sonia Wand by Sensual Hut

A few years ago I bought the Hitachi Magic Wand  because I’d heard it was the “Cadillac of Vibrators” – the original, the be-all-end-all, the orgasm holy grail. Frankly, I was curious (who wouldn’t be?!) However, I think I am the only person on earth that doesn’t completely love the Hitachi. Yes, it’s truly the most powerful vibrator I’ve ever experienced – but, not necessarily in a good way. It’s so powerful that it actually numbs out my lady parts. I think I have used it a total of 3 times since purchasing it and one of those times was to give myself a neck massage. Since then I’ve been weary of trying any other wand style vibrators.

However, when Sensual Hut contacted me to see if I’d be interested in reviewing one of their toys, I decided I’d give wands another try. Enter the Sonia Wand by Sensual Hut, a sleek, gorgeous and compact wand style vibrator.

SH 1
The Sonia Wand by Sensual Hut is made of 100% velvety smooth, medical grade silicone and features a gorgeous metallic plated ABS plastic insert. It has 7 different vibration modes and three intense power levels, and a flexible head to help reach all of you &/or your partner’s curves. To use this toy, place the bulb head of the toy on your clit, lay back & enjoy! You can also use the Sonia as a massage tool for other sensitive areas on you or your partner’s body.

There’s a couple of things that I really like about this toy:

1) It’s rechargeable. Unlike the Hitachi Magic Wand which plugs into the wall (a feature I’ve always found awkward and slightly scary) the Sonia Wand is fully rechargeable by USB.

2) It’s way more convenient.  At approximately 3/4 the size of the Hitachi and at least 1/2 the weight, this is just a way more convenient and discrete toy to travel with or keep in your nightstand. Plus, you never have to plug it in.

SH 2
3) It’s ergonomic. The curved design of this toy is simply gorgeous and it fits nicely in your hand. Because it’s a smaller sized wand it’s also very easy to manoeuvre with intuitive controls.

4) It’s powerful. This toy has a lot of power. Not quite as much as the Hitachi, but enough to give you some really great orgasms!

5) It’s silicone. One of my complaints about the Hitachi Magic Wand is the plastic material that makes up it’s bulbous head actually really irritates my skin. Although I found the Sonia did numb me out a bit after use, it was nothing like the Hitachi. Also, because it’s silicone, it didn’t irritate my lady parts.

What I didn’t like about this toy, was that it delivered vibrations to far too wide an area – which is the reason I tend to avoid wand style vibrators in the first place. There’s nothing wrong with this toy, it’s just that at the end of the day, I still prefer toys that provide precise and pinpointed stimulation like the We-Vibe Touch, The We-Vibe Tango, The Jimmyjane Form 2 or the Crave Duet. With that said, I’m still going to keep the Sonia around because I think she’d make a nice addition when it comes to massage during foreplay.

However, if you are a fan of wand vibrators this one is really nice! Pretty, easy to use, rechargeable, waterproof and doesn’t look like it’s been teleported from 1984. The Sonia retails for $79.99 and is available exclusively through Sensual Hut. Enter the code skinnydip at checkout and get 15% off anything in the store!

What do you guys think – any fans of wand style vibes out there?

PS. I received this toy free of charge in exchange for my honest review of the product. All opinions are my own because that is how I roll. 

Review | These Shoes Were Made for Dancing…Almost

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to putting together boudoir looks (i.e. lingerie or sexy costumes) the shoes are always an afterthought. I usually just grab my favourite pair of super high, black patent leather, stiletto pumps and call it a day. However, lately I’ve been thinking more about shoes and how they play into acting out your fantasies in the bedroom.

So, I was really intrigued when Shoefreaks.ca contacted me about trying and reviewing a pair of their shoes on the blog. Shoefreaks.ca is a 100% Canadian company based in Montreal that specializes in Alternative footwear. Think: anything from wild stripper shoes, platform goth boots to pin-up inspired pumps. If it’s out of the ordinary, they’ve got it! To quote their mission statement:

“We want you to have the power to be who you want to be whenever and however you want to. Want to feel sexy? Then be sexy. Want to rock 10” platforms to your high school reunion? Then rock them. The world is your paradise and if you’re planning on leaving a footprint behind, you better make sure it’s one people will remember you by.” 

Amen to that.

However, although I’ve been known to rock some crazy cheetah print pumps on occasion, my shoe taste tends to fall more in the “ordinary” category. So, when it came time to choose my shoes I went with one of their more subdued options. Skinny Dippers, meet the Fabulicious Lip 139 Sandals by Pleaser.

lip-139-b
The Fabulicious Lip 139 Sandals are a black patent, D’Orsay style, platform sandal with an adjustable ankle strap. Made of man-made faux leather, feature a 3/4 ” platform and 5″ heels. I was initially attracted to these shoes because their minimalist structure reminded a bit of a very sexed up version of the Stuart Weitzman “Nudist” sandal.

Fabulicious
First of all, I was really impressed by the packaging. The shoes arrived in a blue “Fabulicious” box and came with a coordinating blue dust-bag for storage. FYI, when I travel I pack all of my shoes in dust bags, so this is definitely a plus in my books.

photo-24 copy
At first glance, the Fabulicious Lip 139 Sandals are very sleek, however also slightly daunting in height. However, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that they have a nice cushy insole made of soft black suede material. Here’s a few photos of what they look like on.
