Review: Body & Soul Remote I

California Exotic Novelties is always coming out with new products.  Their latest line, Body & Soul, doesn’t seem like anything special, but the Body & Soul Remote I stood out to me.  It was a pretty blue and had a digital remote, so I was curious if it would be better than some of the other remotes they’ve put out.

  • Price:  $62.99
  • Pros:  Such a pretty blue; Controller is easy to use; Batteries come with the toy; Digital controller; Multiple patterns; Very quiet; Great range
  • Cons:  Batteries die quickly; A tad expensive; A bit buzzy; Uses odd size batteries
  • Intensity: 2.5/5
  • Volume: 2/5
  • Overall Rating: 4.25/5
  • Recommended: Yes

The Jopen line isn’t as hot of a topic as it was a few months ago, but recently Jopen was kind enough to send me the Vr1 to review.  I’ve previously reviewed the Vr3 and Vr8 so I was really interested to see how the kegel style balls worked.

Follow Up Friday: Sliquid Swirl Blue Raspberry

I wasn’t thinking about writing a follow up review for this until I was looking through my lube and noticed something funny about this one.  When I got to looking I noticed that there was a film of mold growing around the top of the bottle.  I’ve never seen this happen in any of the lube I’ve had, so I think it’s kinda weird and extremely gross.  Needless to say, I have not used this since I reviewed it, nor will I be.  I do have a pink lemonade version that does not appear to have molded.

sliquid swirl blue raspberry

Hard to tell, but you can see white down in the bottle and kind of a film where it should be liquid

I guess the main lesson and point of this post is to be careful how you use your lube and any “backwash” that could happen from touching the bottle and dispensing it.  If you want to check out any of the Sliquid Swirl flavors, I do recommend them and you can find all six flavors over at EdenFantasys. By the way, check out my original review of this if you want to know what I thought about it before it turned icky.
