Fleshlight

You may have heard of Fleshlight. They make masturbation sleeves that are housed in flashlight-like cases. They’re the best around. My boyfriend is IN LOVE with his.

Sex toy news: a blowjob dildo and biodegradable vibrators (?!)

Sex toy news: a blowjob dildo and biodegradable vibrators (?!)

Let’s start with the most amazing news in recent history: THERE IS FINALLY A NEW BLOWJOB DILDO. Some of you might remember Mr. Man, which has been out of production for ~7 years. This new take is similar: hollow in the middle, with an opening on each end to transfer suction from the head to the wearer’s genitals. Right now it can be found at Early to Bed and She Bop. I’ll also be reviewing it, once I put it through its paces. I’m notoriously Not That Into “couples” toys like the We-Vibe, but even this jaded bitch over here can appreciate the changes they’ve made in the We-Vibe Sync. It now has two points of adjustment to fit a . . . read more

Sex toy news: scented vibrators and remote-controlled underwear

Sex toy news: scented vibrators and remote-controlled underwear

Fun Factory has a whole host of new stuff! There’s Miss Bi, a dual vibe with two strong-ass motors; Calice, an oddly-shaped mini vibe (my girlfriend: “it’s like someone said, make it look like a penis AND a vulva“), and Bi Stronic Fusion, a Stronic/vibe hybrid. Spareparts Hardwear, makers of the most durable underwear-style harness on the market as well as my fave harness, now have a boxer briefs harness! And New York Toy Collective has an uncircumcised dildo: Ellis! Tantus recently released the Duchess, a dual-density version of their Duke, as well as the Starter and Gary. Yes, Gary. A dildo named Gary. LELO just remembered that prostates exist and have unveiled the Loki (aka Butt Mona), Bruno/Hugo, and Loki Wave. They also upgraded . . . read more

Sex toy news: uncut dildos and a rechargeable Hitachi

Sex toy news: uncut dildos and a rechargeable Hitachi

If it seems like it’s been 5,000 years since Jimmyjane released something new, it has. Now, they have graced us with the Hello Touch X (rechargeable now, with an electrostim mode because uh?) and Form 5 (a weird mouth with flappy lips because uh?). The Fun Factory Bouncer looks boring as fuck. But it actually has inner balls that roll around, like kegel beads or their B Balls. I am into this idea. Tantus and SheVibe have teased us with some preliminary photos of uncut dildos they’re collaborating on. Yes! Hallelu, there will soon be a rechargeable Hitachi Magic Wand! The new wand will have a silicone head, four vibration intensities, and can be used while plugged in. Oooh, ahhh. Nexus has a few new products, including a . . . read more

Sex toy news: kegel ball butt plugs and ornate dildos

Sex toy news: kegel ball butt plugs and ornate dildos

I have to restrain myself from getting too excited about this, but Fun Factory is releasing a butt plug that behaves like a pair of kegel balls. They’re called the B Balls, um, of course. The latest crowdfunding campaign is for the Ambrosia Vibe, a strap-on dildo that vibrates when touched. The vibration correlates to the amount of pressure applied to the dildo. Sounds great, except when you realize the vibrator is a shitty egg vibe attached to a battery pack. I gave up on an abundance of wires and straps long ago. Eros & Isis, a company that makes silicone dildos that look more like silver and gold statues, lives again! I got one of their dildos back in . . . read more

Sex toy news: long-distance sex toys and useless gimmicks

Sex toy news: long-distance sex toys and useless gimmicks

The BIG! NEWS! of the moment is LELO’s latest product, the Ora. It’s basically a re-imagined SaSi, which I gotta say, I’m not wholly opposed to. I just think it’s funny that LELO is marketing this like they thought of it first. Two steps forward, one step back. Fun Factory’s latest is a fucking joke of a thing called Amorino. It has a silicone band around it that is supposed to enhance pleasure for someone somewhere, but is mostly a marketing gimmick so they can liken it to cupid’s bow. Sigh. At ANME, We-Vibe promises updates to their Touch and Tango, Aneros is unveiling a vibrating Evi, and Jopen is adding stuff to their Lust line, including rabbits, anal toys, and . . . read more

Sex toy news: a sex toy belt and a vibe that shoots water at your clit

Sex toy news: a sex toy belt and a vibe that shoots water at your clit

Crowdfunding. Again. Always and forever. This time for wooden dildos, which, if you ask the creator, may just be the first wooden dildos ever! The company name is Dee Lee Doo, which I find really childish and upsetting for some reason. Oops, they didn’t reach their $10,000 goal. Tenga’s latest thing (are they going to have a new thing every month?) is the Iroha Mini which, as it turns out, isn’t any smaller than the Iroha vibes, nor is it similar at all. It’s battery-operated and has one speed. Joanna Angel’s incredible vulva has become a Fleshlight! Halleloo! The company that perpetrated the self-lubricating vibrator has unveiled a series of self-lubricating vibrators based on Twilight. According to the company, this series . . . read more

Epiphora's sex toy gift-giving guide

Epiphora’s sex toy gift-giving guide

If you ask me, sex toys are way better gifts than socks or body wash. Now I may be biased, considering I own over 400 of them and have been testing them and reviewing them for six years, but you know. The point is, I have OPINIONS about things that go on vulvas and in vaginas and butts, and even sometimes over penises. Today, I was on Sex Out Loud Radio telling the universe all about my top sex toy gift ideas — plus my tips for picking out a sex toy for someone else. As an accompaniment, here’s the written version — along with photos of the toys and links to my reviews. Where should you shop? My favorite stores are . . . read more

Review: Fleshlight Vibro

Review: Fleshlight Vibro

I can’t get this website out of my head when I think about the Fleshlight Vibro. Granted, who hasn’t taken the “Sex Toy or Baby Toy?” quiz (I got 11/15, by the way), and what isn’t amazing about the page on dollar store sex toys? But I should not be thinking of DIY sex toys when looking at a $77, profesh sex toy. Yet I am. Because the Fleshlight Vibro is basically a nice masturbation sleeve cobbled together with shitty, cheap, annoying little bullet vibrators. This enables it to vibrate, yes, but is the effort worth it? My penis-wielding counterpart says no. Not quite. The Fleshlight Vibro comes in two orifice choices — Lady (vulva) and Butt. Both are made of pink Superskin. . . . read more

Sex toy news: silicone paddles and self-lubricating vibrators

Sex toy news: silicone paddles and self-lubricating vibrators

Tenga is breaking out of the masturbation sleeve box they’ve created for themselves, and are now making rechargeable vibrators. I am intrigued by these specimens. Crave, makers of the Duet, have two new vibes: Solo and Wink. Solo is a simpler version of the Duet. Wink looks like a tube of chapstick. Crystal Delights will be producing the trophies for this year’s Feminist Porn Awards! They will be Magnetic Bunny Tail Plugs. Tantus released a line of 100% silicone paddles with adorable names such as Thwack. I made the mistake of hitting my arm with one. Can anybody decipher this Korean thing called Airbee? Apparently it has a pressure sensor for kegels and Bluetooth is involved? This happened quickly: Fun Factory has announced . . . read more
