If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile you may have noticed that the majority of the sex toys I review are either purple or pink in hue. That’s no coincidence – I remember reading somewhere recently that sex toy companies tend to favour those colours because they are the ones that (apparently) sell best. I also have reviewed a lot of rabbit vibrators and small clitoral vibrators. When I come across something that’s really different than anything I’ve tried before, my interest is immediately piqued. That was definitely the case when I saw the Jopen Lust collection for the first time.
The structure of this toy is different than anything I’ve ever seen before. It kind of reminds me of a cartoon palm tree meets a tulip. The Lust L6 is approximately 8″ overall and features a 2″ insertable stimulator that’s incased in vibrating, fluttering “petals” or “leaves” that are 3.5″ long.
Because it’s hard for me to describe through photographs the various ways you can use this toy, I thought I’d share with you this really great video where Jaiya walks us through the different ways you can play with the Lust L6.
1. For teasing and tickling – I found that this is where the Lust L6 really excelled. This toy is really awesome when you use the fronds to tease and stimulate your clitoris like Jaiya explains in the video. Use it as a solo “warm up” to more play, or with a partner to totally kick your foreplay up a notch. For a more intense feeling I would also recommend applying the stimulator directly to your clit while allowing the petals to tease and tickle either side of your labia. Think of this like a high-tech, robot version of a feather tickler, ready to work you (and a partner!) into a steamy, foreplay frenzy.
2. As an alternative to a rabbit vibrator – This is what Jaiya is talking about when she says you can use it to “engulf your pelvic floor.” Originally I thought that this was how I’d prefer to use this toy but I was wrong. Although Jopen claims that the stimulator in the middle is curved for G-Spot stimulation, inserting it did absolutely nothing for me. It’s only 2 inches long which means it doesn’t reach anywhere near my g-spot (or anywhere really. 2″ isn’t much to work with!) Although the top petal reached my clit, the bottom petal just felt awkward like there was a giant silicone leaf wedged between my ass cheeks – which, essentially was exactly what was happening. This method was a complete FAIL for me.
3. “In and Out” – It totally didn’t cross my mind to use the toy this way but I like the way Jaiya thinks…that is, until she used the expression “Nether Regions” and I experienced a full body shudder.
4. “Backdoor Explore” – This is another one that I didn’t even think of. Although anal play generally isn’t my jam, if you’re looking to explore some backdoor action, I imagine this toy would be a good bet. At 2″ long, the stimulator is small, non-intimidating and easy to insert with the help of lube. Plus, you get the extra stimulation from the petals, which adds an extra element to your play.
Even the Interns found another use for the L6.
