Follow Up Friday: My Fixation Couples Vibe & Panty

Over a year ago I reviewed a wearable vibe called the Fixation Couples Vibe.  It was an interesting toy but it didn’t quite work well for me and was a little too buzzy for my liking (check out my full review for more).  Since then, I hadn’t thought much about the toy and I recently pulled it out to pass on to a new home.  I decided I would mark sure it would still hold a charge only to be disappointed that it would not charge at all and was completely dead.  I contacted the company and was informed that the battery only has a shelf life of 1 year and that if it is not charged it will die and the warranty was expired so it would not be replaced.  I have never heard of a battery having a shelf life and it makes me want to go and check all of my toys that I don’t use often.  I also had no desire to pull it out and try it since the review, so that does show my actual interest and enjoyment of the toy.  However, it’s kinda of sad, the thought that the toy was not loved enough that it just died.

Follow Up Friday: Babeland Massage Oil Spray

What’s left of my oil

It’s been many months since I first reviewed the Babeland Massage Oil Spray.  My favorite use has still been to use it as a skin moisturizer after a shower.  I don’t use it ever shower, but I probably pull it out a few times a month.  I spritz a few sprays on my arms and legs and rub it in.  It leaves me so smooth and silky and the smell is very nice.  However, as you can see from the picture, I am nearly out.   However, I hope to refill it with some other oil I have because the sprayer is so nice.  This is one of my favorite products, while it isn’t great for massage, it’s a great after bath skin product that leaves you soft and sweet smelling.

Follow Up Friday: Sex Smarts

I’ve been bad about doing these follow up reviews… I’m going to try to be better about it.  Today I’m going to follow up on an item I reviewed over a year ago, the Sex Smarts game from MyPleasure.

The Box

I hadn’t really gotten much use out of this game until Momentum Con.  I decided to take it with me on the off chance I met a group of people to chill with during the evening.  Luckily I did and we broke out the game.  While we didn’t play it by any rules, we still had a lot of fun.  A few people took turns read off cards and everyone just yelled at an answer.  It was a great way to start conversations and it took us an hour or more to go through all the cards.  Ever one loved the little game and many asked where they could buy it at.  It was especially neat because in the group was my roommate for MCon, Garnet (formerly) of MyPleasure who had sent me the item to review in the first place.  She was thrilled that I brought it and thought it was a blast.

I think Sex Smarts is still a great little game.  It’s inexpensive, cute, and great for a group of open minded friends.  It could even be used if you’re a sex educator as some good ice breaker questions.  You can pick it up for $24.95 over at MyPleasure.

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.

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.

Follow Up Friday: Handmaiden

I was looking through all the products I’ve reviewed and the Handmaiden G-Spot Seeker is the one that stuck out to me the most.  Why did it stick out to me?  Because I haven’t touched it since I reviewed it.

The Handmaiden

It was a product I had seen for a long time, before I had even started reviewing, and really wanted.  This looked like just what I needed to find my g-spot and bring me to that point that I’ve so very much wanted to reach.  However, it just didn’t quite work out the way I wanted it too.  It’s a little awkward to use and is a little thicker than I’d prefer.  I also didn’t find the clitoral part to be overly stimulating and I think having bullet you can insert into it.  It does put a lot of pressure on the g-spot though which some people will really enjoy.  The silicone is very soft and doesn’t attract a lot of lint and comes with a nice storage back which is another plus.  Overall for me though, this is a toy that just didn’t work as well for me as I hoped, but I do think someone will fall in love with it
