Sex Toy Review | The Lelo Ina 1.0

I’ve been lusting after the Lelo Ina vibrator ever since my friend described it as her very own “5 seconds to orgasm machine”.  The Lelo Ina is the “rabbit vibe” version of one of my favourite toys, the Lelo Mona. They’re very similar in shape,  however the Lelo Ina is designed to stimulate both of your happy spots (C-spot and G-Spot!) I was super excited when the lovely folks over at Ohhh Canada decided to make my vibrator dreams come true and send me a Lelo Ina to try (Thank you!!)

The basics: 

The Lelo Ina is a dual stimulation luxury vibrator from the geniuses over at Swedish sex toy company Lelo. In true Lelo style, Ina is very stylish and looks like a piece of art. Completely body-safe, Ina is made of luxury, high grade silicone and plastic that is silky smooth to the touch. The toy has two powerful motors – one in the protruding bit (for clit stimulation) and one in the shaft (for internal stimulation) that produce throbbing, intense vibrations. It has easy to use controls that allow you to cycle through 7 different vibration modes and intensity levels with ease. The controls can be locked to help prevent embarrassing sex toy mishaps while travelling. The Ina is fully rechargeable with means no more batteries, baby! (I love, love, love rechargeable toys because they are so much more convenient than battery operated toys.) In true Scandinavian style, Ina is a bright, sassy orange colour – which is kind of a refreshing change from all of the pink & purple toys out there!

The Skinny: 

As someone who really loves toys with powerful, deep vibrations, the Lelo Ina definitely fits the bill. It’s has strong rumbling vibrations that will lead to some intense internal & external orgasms…often simultaneously… Yowza! The toy is ergonomically designed to fit snugly within a woman’s body. One word to describe the Lelo Ina: INTENSE. The curved shaft pinpoints your G-Spot while the snug fitting clitoral arm puts steady pressure on your clit. Using this toy felt a bit like being on one of those roller-coasters where you race up at a 90 degree angle to death defying heights, do a series of upside down circles and then head back down the way you came up. It’s thrilling but also kind of like “That was awesome, but what the f**k just happened?!” It took a while to get used to the intensity of this toy.

If you need a lot of pressure on your clit to get off, you will love the Lelo Ina when it’s “In ya (get it?!). However, if you prefer teasing “fluttering” sensations for clitoral stimulation (i.e.. like what a classic rabbit vibrator might offer) I’d suggest you try the Lelo Soraya instead. I could be biased because it’s my favourite toy ever, but I prefer a vibrator that has a longer shaft and a more flexible clitoral arm. Although I definitely liked the Ina and will be playing with it regularly, I still prefer my Lelo Soraya because I’m able to control the intensity & pressure more to my liking.

So you can see the difference in shape, here’s a photo of the two toys side by side:

To give you an idea of size, the Ina has 3.5″ of insertable length, whereas the Soraya has 5.5″ of insertable length.

Who I’d recommend this toy to:

Anyone who likes a toy with intense vibrations, couples who are looking to add something new to their bedroom play, anyone who is looking to upgrade their rabbit vibrator to something more slick & intense.

 Has anyone else tried the Lelo Ina? What’s your favorite toy?

Thanks again to Ohhh Canada for sending me my very own Ina! I received the toy free of charge in exchange for my honest assessment of the product.

Sex Toy Review | The Ladygasm Vice

Ladygasm is the new sex toy company on the block and I like what they are about. They believe that every woman deserves to feel good and  have access to high quality, body safe, sex toys. Their mission is to design sex toys for real Women: “Women with bank accounts both big and small. Women of all shapes and sizes. Women who believe in the universality of simply feeling great.”  Therefore, Ladygasm have created an exclusive line of rechargeable sex toys at a more affordable price point than many of the luxury brands on the market.

ladygasm viceWhen the nice people over at Ladygasm told me that they were sending me my very own Ladygasm Vice, I was really excited to try the toy because of it’s interesting shape. The Ladygasm Vice is  body safe, waterproof, rechargeable, dual stimulation “rabbit” vibrator made of silky soft medical grade silicone. It has a rounded, flexible clitoral arm and an exotic bulbous shaft designed to hit all the right nerve endings. The toy has two separate motors – one in the clitoral arm and one in the shaft – in order to ensure deep and intense vibrations. The Ladygasm is a gorgeous toy esthetically with one easy to use control button at the base.  The Vice comes in a beautiful black box and includes an elegant mesh carry case.

The biggest drawback of this toy is that the online description is slightly misleading. The toy has been toted as being “virtually silent” – it’s not. The Ladygasm Vice is actually one of the loudest toys I own. When I turned it on for the first time, I actually jumped a bit because it was surprisingly loud. Secondly, the Vice is also described as being of “slightly larger size” and “longer and fuller” of which it is neither. The Ladygasm Vice is actually one of the smallest and most narrow toys I own. It’s approximately  7.5 inches long, with only 4.5 inches of that actually insertable. To give you an idea of the size, I’ve taken this photo so you can see it compared to the Siena Symphony and the Lelo Soraya:

L-R: Siena Symphony, Lelo Soraya, Ladygasm Vice

As you can see, the Vice is just a little guy.

Although, the Vice’s size doesn’t hinder it’s performance, I was expecting a nice thick, long toy like the True Love Honey Bunny or either of the ones featured in the photo. Instead, the toy is much more slender and delicate than what you’d expect. If I had actually purchased this toy I think I would have been disappointed. A more accurate description of the product would definitely help better set customers expectations (especially customers like me, who already own quite a few luxury toys.)

With that said, this toy definitely delivers on it’s promise of intense vibrations. The Vice has a nice rumble that will satisfy people like me who like their toys to go long & hard. I also love that it’s rechargeable because really, who wants to have to buy batteries on a regular basis?!

One of the most interesting things I’ve learned over the year is that it’s almost impossible to make a vibrator that will work for everyone. What fits one person perfectly, might not work for another. Unfortunately, the Vice just wasn’t the perfect match for my body. While using it on my back, it just didn’t hit the right spots at all. However, after a lot of trial, error and some bizarre yoga-like moves, I was eventually able to figure out a position that worked for me…and once I did, I ended up having a pretty insane orgasm (& then a few more after that. When positioned right the Vice does deliver!) I also liked that the toy was soft and flexible which made it really easy to maneuver. Yogi moves aside, I enjoyed my experience with the Vice and think it’s a good toy- it just wasn’t the perfect toy for me. Perhaps the shape of the Ladygasm Cici would work better for me.

Who I think would enjoy this toy:

Couples: Because of it’s neutral look and non-intimating size, I think this would be a great toy for a couple who wants a high quality toy to experiment with vibrator play but doesn’t want something that looks like a giant, purple penis.

Beginners and people who don’t like huge toys: This toy is on the small side but it delivers the goods. This is why I think it would be a great first toy for someone who maybe isn’t sure what size toy they actually enjoy OR for a seasoned toy user who already knows they don’t enjoy really large toys.

Sexy Fun in the Tub with Bath Kitten by Booty Parlor

One of the downsides of staying with my Mom is that I don’t have as much privacy as I did before. This only ever becomes an issue when nice people like my friend Katrina from Ohhh Canada send me cool stuff like new sex toys to try or books about penises to read. Although I’m open about my sex toy collection with the people I date, I’d be mortified if my Mom ever heard any funny noises coming from my bedroom. So, basically I have to wait until I am alone in the house to try anything. I feel like I’m part of married couple that has to wait to have sex until after the kids go to bed except there are no kids and I’m basically just having sex with myself. Welcome to my life!

A few weeks ago Katrina of sent me the Bath Kitten by Booty Parlor Gift Set.  I’ve been dying to give it a whirl but due to lack of “alone time” it’s been sitting on my desk, taunting me in it’s pretty pink box for a few weeks now. Earlier this week I FINALLY had some time to myself where I could indulge in a nice long bath & take the Bath Kitten set for a spin.

Bath Kitten gift set - Booty Parlor

I’ve been a fan of Booty Parlor’s cheeky and cutely packaged products ever since Katrina introduced me to their Kissaholic Aphrodisiac Plumping Lip gloss (which has since become a favorite of mine) so I was excited to see what their Bath Kitten Gift Set had in store.

This cute little package comes with one “Purring Massage Mitt” and a bottle of “Naughty Bubbles Bath Milk” designed to help you transform your  bath time into a sexy, luxurious spa experience.

The Purring Massage Mitt is made of ultra soft terry cloth that helps slough away dead skin, while the tiny vibrator located inside sends pleasurable vibrations all over. The Naughty Bubbles Bath Milk is a decadent dessert inspired treat that smells like white chocolate & honey (yum!) and contains natural skin conditioning ingredients. Active ingredients in bath milk include kukui nut oil (moisturizer), macadamia nut oil (skin restorative), silk and milk proteins (improves elasticity) and vitamin E (antioxidant).

Soft skin AND a little bath time fun?! I like the sounds of that!

Unlike many things in life, the Massage Mitt comes with batteries! This means you don’t have to make any awkward runs to the convenience store before you partake in some “me time.”

The small vibrator that acts as the “purring” mechanism in the Massage Mitt is fully waterproof. This means you can just sit back, close your eyes and enjoy the experience…..which is exactly what I did!

First of all, I must mention that the Naughty Bubbles smell good enough to eat. As soon as I poured them into the bath the whole room was filled with a subtle vanilla-meets-white -chocolate fragrance. It was quite lovely!

Once my bath water was running, I turned on the little “purring” bullet vibrator and inserted into the side opening of the Massage Mitt. Once inside the Massage Mitt, the vibrations are very subtle. Running the Massage Mitt over your skin definitely feels good but the vibrations probably aren’t strong enough to get you off  – at least they weren’t for me (Yes, I checked.) They feel good in a “wow, this foot bath feels good!” kind of way, NOT in a “This feels so good I’m going to have an explosive orgasm” kind of way. With that said, the subtle vibrations definitely were a relaxing and definitely got me in the mood for something more.

My only complaint about the Massage Mitt is that I found it difficult to turn the vibrations on and off. In theory you’re supposed to be able to do this without removing the vibrator from the mitt however, I found I had to reach in and fully remove the vibe in order to turn it on or off. This is the only detail that makes the Massage Mitt slightly awkward to use.

Being the curious bath kitten that I am, I couldn’t resist removing the bullet vibrator from inside the Massage Mitt and having some post bath time playtime with it. On it’s own, that little vibe is actually quite powerful and perfect for a bath time quickie. The Massage Mitt also works well on it’s own to exfoliate in the shower.

With wedding season upon us, I would definitely think about giving this as a fun bridal shower gift. It’s chic and tastefully sexy. If you’re more conservative you get a cute bath gift set & some relaxing massage action or, if you’re a bit more of a frisky kitten (like me) you also get a mini vibrator to play around in or out of the tub all for the reasonable price of $39.99.

I would recommend this product to:

-Anyone who is looking for a cute gift & loves clever packaging.

-Someone who is curious about vibrators but wants to start by dipping their toes in the shallow end with a product that’s super non-threatening.

My last piece of advice would be this: After you’re finished playing with the Bath Kitten Massage Mitt, REMOVE THE BATTERIES. After using the Bath Kitten Set, I cleaned everything off & put it back in it’s original box, which I then placed on my dresser. A few hours later I walked by my dresser and the whole box started shaking and vibrating. Fearing that it might be possessed, I did what anyone would do, I removed it from it’s box and stuck it deep into the back of my lingerie drawer. Everything was fine until I went in to grab a bra the next day, and heard a loud buzzing sound. I guess we’re to assume that the little vibe is either one very sensitive (& powerful) little piece of machinery or I’m like the Dr. Doolittle of sex toys – they just like to talk to me (and the people around me) whenever they get the chance. Either is a very real possibility.

I like the sounds of that.

My Hoo-Ha Has Bad Taste in Music

I know right? I’m as shocked as you guys are.

Something I rarely talk about on the blog is music – even though it’s a huge part of who I am. I have a love affair with soul, R&B and Hip Hop. As a teenager, I read Vibe magazine religiously, spent hours holed up in my bedroom listening to the hip hop station from Seattle and spent most of my babysitting money on records. I daydreamed about one day moving to New York City to work at Vibe magazine (as their token white girl staffer) where I would spend my days interviewing the likes of LL Cool J & Mary J. Blige (in this fantasy I was also totally ghetto fab, rocked killer door knocker earrings and had a sweet nameplate necklace that said “Monie” in italic writing. A girl can dream right?) I have yet to work as a music journalist however, music is still a huge part of my private life. My heart moves to the sounds of Raphael Saadiq, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, The Roots and Prince (among others). There’s also a whole slew of electronic & indie acts that I adore like Little Dragon, Cut Copy & Passion Pit. I get so excited whenever I discover new music or have the chance to see my favorite artists play live. If I don’t answer when you call my name it’s probably because I’m listening to my iPod.

So, when Katrina at Ohhh Canada asked me if I wanted to try the OhMiBod Naughtibod Music Vibrator – a luxury sex toy that vibrates along with the beat of your iPod (!!!!!), I jumped at the chance. Orgasm to my favorite music? Um, yes please.

The OhMiBod Naughtibod is body-safe, phthalates free and made of ABS plastic with chrome details. It is a smaller sized vibe with a grooved shape and a silky, velvety texture similar to a silicone toy. The toy features a double ended attachment that allows you to plug in your iPod and earphones. When you begin to play music on your iPod, the toy starts to vibrate along to the beat! You can control the intensity of the vibrations by increasing the volume of the music. You can also use the OhMiBod Naughtibod as a regular vibrator without the iPod attachment.

Before trying this toy I asked myself “I wonder what kind of music my vagina will like?” I assumed my hoo-ha would love the same kinds of soulful sounds that I like. I imagined orgasms to the sounds of Sade or Raphael Saadiq’s Skyy Can you Feel Me (which, is one of my favorite songs) or at the very least some Billie Holiday or Prince. My hoo-ha seems like the classy kind of broad that would be into this stuff, right? WRONG.

As it turns out my vagina has the musical taste of a gumsmacking teenager, permenantly tuned in to the HITZ 92.9 FM TOP 40 HOUR. My vagina likes Pitbull. And Lady Gaga. And bad dance music from the 90’s. Actually, when it came to using this vibrator, I discovered that the stronger the beat & the more obnoxious the lyrics, the better.

Songs my Hoo-Ha likes:

1. Pitbull “Give me Everything” (This was a good song to start with. Strong beat & a good build up)

2. Lady Gaga “Monster” (HE ATE MY HEART HE AYYY AYYY ATE MY HEART are weird lyrics to get off to but my hoo-ha really, really liked this one. MA MA MA MONSTER!)

3. Lady Gaga “Alejandro” (YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU BOY. HOT LIKE MEXICO. ALLE ALLE HANDROOOOO. This is a good build up song for round #2)

4. Pitbull “Pause” ( Onbnoxious beat plus these lyrics: MAMI YOU LOOK SO RIGHT. NOW GOOOOOO. STOP. DROP. PAUSE. NOW LOOK AT THE GIRL SHE’S LIKE OHHH. NOW LOOK AT THAT GIRL SHE’S LIKE AHHH – I think this one is self-explanatory)

5. Venga Boys “Boom Boom Boom” (This embarassing… but what can I say? It works! BOOM BOOM BOOM I WANT YOU IN MY ROOM!)

(*Disclaimer: I’m not saying that liking Pitbull or Lady Gaga means you have bad taste in music. I obviously like them enough to own all of their albums. It’s just that neither would be my logical go-to choice for “sexy time music”. However, if you do like get down to some Gaga & Pit, I’m not judging. However, if you’re getting down on the regular to the Venga Boys, first of all – congrats on making that work – but seriously, let me make you a mix tape.)

The only thing you should be aware of with the OhMiBod Naughtibod is that I found the vibrations were more on the “moderate” to “gentle” side. In order to get the vibrations to the highest level, I really had to crank the music to the max which meant I was literally getting ear blasted by Pit and Gaga while I was getting my rocks off. I was using my iPhone so, it might be slightly different with a different device. The upside to the vibrations not being super intense is that I got to lie back, listen to the song & enjoy the build up to some nice orgasms.

Who I would recommend this to:

The sheer novelty factor of this toy is a lot of fun & I think it would make the perfect sassy stocking stuffer for someone looking to buy their first vibrator, the tech junkie who already has everything or couples looking to have a bit of fun while listening to their favorite tunes (because the vibrations are gentle, this would make a fun teasing toy during foreplay!)

Oh, Happy Day!

My best friend and I always joke about our differing taste in men. She’s always liked the guys who were good at gym class (jocks) where I have always been more attracted to the guys who were smoking and setting stuff on fire when they should have been in gym class. As a kid I would watch re-runs of Happy Days and would reenact elaborate song & dance sequences from Grease and Westside Story. As a teen when most of my friends were hanging up posters of dimpled nice guys like Scott Wolf, I found myself gravitating more towards the likes of James Dean and Johnny Depp. If you want my lady parts to start tingling, give me a social outcast in a leather jacket that’s well-prepared for a knife fight. So, when I found out there was a vibrator named “Fonzie” (named after one of the most famous leather clad bad-asses around) I knew I had to try it. After all, the Fonz was always popular with the ladies.

The Fonzie G-spot and Clitoral vibrator is a dual stimulation toy from Feelztoys. This little purple guy is made of 100% of silicone – a body safe material that has the soft and velvety feel of skin. It is hypoallergenic and Phthalates free. Fonzie’s shaft is curved to help stimulate your G-Spot and also includes a little nubby bit for clitoral stimulation. The toy has seven different vibration settings that you can easily cycle through to experience different sensations. If you want to take this toy into the bath or shower you can because it’s completely waterproof! At approximately 5 1/2 inches long, Fonzie is a smaller sized (read: non-intimidating) toy that actually packs a lot of punch.

Fonzie took a little bit of getting used to however, once I did, I’ve really enjoyed using this toy. The important thing to understand about this toy is that if you are looking for a Rabbit Vibrator (dual stimulation toy that you can use inside and out) this probably isn’t the toy for you. Fonzie is not a classic Rabbit vibrator.However, if you want a good G-Spot vibrator, with a little bit extra, you will probably like what Fonzie has to offer.

I think we’ve all been in the situation where you’re in bed with someone for the first time and they’re totally hot, you’re turned on but yet somehow the sex just. isn’t. working. It’s like a big tangle of awkward limbs and even though you’re shifting your hips, moving your legs, trying to find a position that works, it just feels like maybe your bodies just don’t line up properly. This is kind of what my first experience using Fonzie was like. I think what threw me off was that the nubby bit that’s meant to stimulate your clit totally didn’t line up with mine. When I was finally able to get it to work for me, the clitoral vibrations weren’t really that strong. Unlike typical Rabbit vibrators where the clitoral stimulator usually has a motor of its own, Fonzie’s clitoral arm is attached to the shaft so you are basically just getting residual vibrations from the rest of the toy, not intense stimulation. If you need a lot of clitoral stimulation to get off, this toy might not be for you. You should instead check out something like this or like this.

The upside? As a G-Spot vibrator this toy is quite awesome. The curved shape hits all the right spots and the vibrations were strong enough to get me off several times in a row. Fonzie’s ribbed texture also feels really good. I love that you can cycle through the different vibration settings with ease – a feature I love about my Lelo Mona. Overall I was impressed with the design and quality of this toy, given it’s reasonable price point of $39.99.

Who I would recommend this toy to: This toy would be great for someone who maybe already has another vibrator but is looking to add something specifically for the G-Spot to their toy collection. It’s a great option for anyone who is looking for a vibrating alternative to the Lelo Ella but one that is more user friendly than the Candy Cane vibe. This would also be a fun toy for couples who are looking to mix things up a bit.

A Fonz FYI: This toy takes two AAA batteries (those little tiny ones that fit in your TV remote). Make sure you have some in stock. When Fonzie arrived on my doorstep, I immediately tore off all of his packaging only to realize once I was in the bedroom that I didn’t have the right kind of batteries. Before I could play with him I had to run out to the convenience store. As I was anxiously purchasing my AAA’s, the elderly Korean man who runs the place gave me a look that totally said “Honey, we know what you are up to.” Don’t do what I do. The more I spend time with Fonzie, the more I like him. My opinion has gone from: This:

to THIS: Thanks to Fonzie there have been some “Happy Days” over at chez Skinny Dip. Actually I think this accurately sums up my week of “rocking and rolling” (again & again & again) with Fonzie:

“The weekend comes, my cycle hums…ready to race to you!”

OK, now that I have officially shattered more childhood memories, which sex toys are you interested in seeing reviewed on Skinny Dip?
