Review: Apollo Power Stroker

My fate when receiving male toys to review is that when I request them, I have a fairly regular partner, but by the time I get the item, I am no longer with that partner.  Such was the case with the Apollo Power Stroker from California Exotic Novelties.  Parts of this review, mostly the technical pieces, are my analysis of the toy, while the stuff in use is written by a friend that has helped me with other male item reviews on my site.

The Run Down:

  • Toy Type:  Male Stroker
  • Manufacturer:  California Exotic Novelties
  • Includes:  Stroker, Regular end cap; Suction cup end cap
  • Materials:  ABS plastic and Jelly
  • Size:  8.5″ total length; 3.5″ deep; 2″ inner diameter; 1.75″ handle diameter; 3″ max diameter
  • Price:  $59.95
  • Pros:  Multiple speeds and settings; Tougher than expected;  Good internal texture; Not too bad to clean; Comes with suction cup
  • Cons:  Packaging isn’t impressive; Jelly material; Vibration isn’t that strong; Not deep enough for reviewer’s liking; Suction cup doesn’t add much, especially when it’s not long enough to thrust into
  • Intensity: 3/5
  • Volume: 4/5
  • Overall Rating: 4/5
  • Recommended: Yes

Review: LELO Ora

Recently Lelo released one of their new products, the Ora.  They have been creating a lot of new versions of their original products lately, but I was excited, yet nervous, to try out the Ora.  I had experienced the Sasi that came out before I started reviewing, and wasn’t impressed.  I had also tried the Squeel and didn’t enjoy it either, so I was hoping the Ora would offer me a little more.

The Run Down:

  • Toy Type:  Out-ie; Oral sex simulator
  • Manufacturer:  Lelo
  • Includes:  Toy, charging cable, and storage bag
  • Materials:  Silicone and ABS Plastic
  • Size:  3″ diameter, 1.75″ wide to 1″ wide
  • Price:  $169
  • Pros:  Two modes of vibration; Multiple patterns;  Smooth silicone; Waterproof; Deeper vibration; Noticeable (but subtle) stimulation from the rotating ball
  • Cons:  On the loud side; A seam to pay attention to when cleaning;  could be bigger; Ball only has one speed; Can get very slippery with lube
  • Intensity: 4/5
  • Volume: 4/5
  • Overall Rating: 4/5
  • Recommended: Yes

Toy with me Tuesday #1

This is my first entry that I’ve ever done for Toy with me Tuesday.  My friend was doing a photoshoot with me, to work on some new banners and such for my site along with a few other things.  He really wanted to photograph me with some of my toys, so I thought I should share them.  This first one is the Phallix Cobalt Blue Dichroic G-spot.  It’s probably one of the most beautiful things that will go in my vagina.

Indiegogo Campaign: Ambrosia Vibe

A year or so ago, I was lucky enough to receive the X1 Orgasmatron to review.  If you didn’t know, Orgasmatronics, Inc has since released many other attachments for the Orgasmatron (which reviews of each will be coming this summer!).  However, this post isn’t here to talk about the X1 Orgasmatron or their attachments.  It’s to talk about Orgasmatronics, Inc Indidgogo Campaign.  Now usually, I don’t post about upcoming products.  I tend to stick to reviews, giveaways, and Dating Fails.  So why am I posting about it?  Well first because I’m a geek and I get excited over really cool uses of technology, especially when sex is involved.  And two because for as long as I can remember I have always wanted to have a real penis.  Now items like the Fun Factory Share and Tantus Feeldoe take strapons to another level but it still doesn’t give you much stimulation from stroking the shaft.  This is where the Ambrosia vibe should get you excited.

ambrosiaThe Ambrosia vibe responds to touch, pressure change to be exact.  There are no moving parts in the dildo itself but any touch, squeezing, sucking, or fucking transmits a pressure to a control box which then converts that to a vibration pattern in the bullet.  It is honestly one of the coolest vibrators I have seen since I started this blog.

Now, since this is on Indiegogo, you can’t buy it and get it next week.  The campaign is to help crowdfund the manufacturing cost.  Funding options start as low as $5 and range upwards of $5000 for those with really deep pockets.  But even for $5 you get something for it.  If you donate $5, you get a nifty LESS PANTS, MORE SCIENCE button.  The early bird special (to safe a lot on getting your hands on an Ambrosia Vibe) has sold out, but you can still get one.  Donate $149 and you will get the basic dildo, control box, bullet, and pressure tube.  Also, at other levels you can get stuff like autographed DVDs from Buck Angel and subscriptions to Courtney Trouble’s indiepornrevolution.

But I’m going to stop rambling about it now because they have a TON of information about the awesomeness of the Ambrosia Vibe on their Indiegogo page.  Go check it out, donate if you love it as much as me, and prepare yourself for awesome.  The campaign is already 62% funded (there are stretch goals so keep donating!) and it will end on July 17th.
