Vixen Creations

Vixen Creations is a small, San Francisco-based company that produces amazing silicone toys. Their crowning glory is VixSkin, a dual-density 100% silicone with a squishy outer layer and hard inner core. I love every single VixSkin toy I own. Vixen’s single-density silicone is also luscious, though.

Runaway dildo winner!

Runaway dildo winner!

When SheVibe found the last living neon green Mustang under a low shelf in their warehouse, we had to team up to give it away. And because any dildo pairs well with a nice vibe, we decided the winner would also get a Leaf vibe of their choice.

The lucky winner of this pairing is Kara! She chose the Leaf Life (oh hey, I like that one too!) and wrote back:

OOOOHHH MY GOD YOU JUST MADE ME DANCE AROUND MY APARTMENT IN JOY! MY DOG ALSO JOINED IN. You are spreading joy and orgasms around the world. . . . read the rest

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Mustang

Postcards from the Peanut Gallery: Mustang

I knew I was in for something good because the email began, “I feel like only you can understand the breathtaking sense of wonder and accomplishment I’m feeling.”

Unsurprisingly, the email was about squirting.

Despite already owning and loving the G-spot god that is the Pure Wand, the letter writer experienced her first ever ejaculation with the unassuming Vixen Creations Mustang. See, I knew it would make a good beginner’s G-spotter!

Aside from having the best screen name on earth, That Virgin Who Can’t Drive is also very adept at describing sensation. As it turns out, the Mustang pairs wonderfully with the Leaf Vitality vibrator…

Okay, so, I’m still relatively new to toys and your blog has been indispensable in helping me to spend my money wisely. . . . read the rest

Giveaway: the runaway dildo

Giveaway: the runaway dildo

Back in October, we mourned the discontinuation of some of the loveliest neon dildos from Vixen Creations, including the green Mustang and all neon versions of the Maverick. I thought they were all gone forever. BUT THEN this email from SheVibe happened:

Dude, you’ll never guess what I found in the warehouse. A GREEN MUSTANG!! It had rolled underneath a low shelf, we don’t even have them on the site anymore. It must be the last living one — wanna do a giveaway?

If I do nothing else in my life, at least I can be the person who gives away rare dildos in a color that may never happen again in our lifetimes. . . . read the rest

Epiphora's best and worst sex toys of 2013

Epiphora's best and worst sex toys of 2013

[Check out my annual best/worst tag for older and newer lists!]

2013 was a good year. I attended CatalystCon East AND CatalystCon West (even doing a panel), hit 500 postsbecame a superhero, conducted my most elaborate April Fool’s joke ever, and oh yeah, I was gifted a $1,345 Sybian. I spilled my guts about the horrible sex toys I used to lust afterwhy I hate pink, and why I think sex toys should not be called “pleasure objects.” I wrote my epic beginner’s guide to sex toy reviewing and gave you a peek into my life as a sex toy reviewer. . . . read the rest

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. . . . read the rest

Discontinuation alert: Vixen neon dildos

Discontinuation alert: Vixen neon dildos

I HATE WRITING POSTS LIKE THIS, but you guys deserve to know before it’s too late.

These beauties from Vixen Creations are going away. All neon Mavericks, including the tie dye one, are being discontinued, as is the neon green Mustang. I guess we can’t have nice things. That appears to be the only explanation. (I’m sure Vixen would tell you that these weren’t selling well enough, but I won’t listen to reason.)

Prior to these hitting the scene, most of Vixen’s dual-density VixSkin dildos were made only in skin tones. Raquel was, for a long time, the only exception — and it was pink. . . . read the rest

Review: Buck

Review: Buck

Is there a VixSkin oversaturation point? I now own seven things made out of this dual-density silicone, yet I’m still impressed by its ability to make every shape of dildo better. Fact: VixSkin will spoil you. You will forget what life was like before it. It will eat you out of house and lube, and you won’t even care.

The Vixen Creations Buck is no exception. In fact, although the material no longer shocks me with its squishy majesty, Buck is one of my favorite VixSkin dildos yet. I’m talking top three material.

After much testing and many orgasms that I didn’t mean to have quite so quickly, I have “discovered” something that simply looking at the fucking toy would tell you (I’m dense sometimes): Buck’s head is gradual. . . . read the rest

4-year blogiversary giveaway winners

Wow. I’m about 99% certain my 4-year blogiversary giveaway was the most successful giveaway in the history of this blog. And that’s a tall order considering some of the hella cool giveaways I’ve done in the past.

I am humbled by all the amazing comments you left offering improvement ideas. I’ve already implemented one of the ideas — a suggestion box where you can drop your thoughts without even giving your name. Hopefully it will be useful when you have something embarrassing you want to tell me? Or something?

Without further ado, here are the lucky winners of the 15 toys in my giveaway! . . . read the rest

Review: Leo

Review: Leo

As with any type of collector, the phrase “limited edition” is like a dog whistle to my ears. Add the color orange to the equation and I’m like a dog that has just savored a long car ride with the windows rolled down and is now bounding at breakneck speed into a park because I’ve spotted the perfect pile of shit to roll around in.

The Vixen Creations Leoweenie is a limited edition version of Vixen’s popular Leo, and although the name Leoweenie is pretty good, I feel like this was a missed opportunity to call the dildo batcock. I was a bit disappointed in the coloring, too. . . . read the rest
