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: Leaf Life

The Life

I reviewed the Leaf Life near the start of this year.  The Leaf line had just came out and there was a lot of buzz (haha, get it?!) about it.  I had reviewed the Spirit as well, which I liked it, but the Life rocked  my socks off and I have to stay it still does.  The shape and vibrations make it my favorite and my go-to clit vibe.  I can honestly say I use this more than any of my other favorites.  When compared to the Je Joue Mimi it’s not quite as strong or as deep of a vibratio, but it works well for me.  It’s just right.  Plus it’s very easy to use and adjust the speed.  I’m still not a huge fan of the single button/push to hold style, but I’ve gotten much more used to it.   I almost never have to charge it either, I’ll give it a charge every few weeks and it’s good.  I’ve only had it die once or twice because it had been so long since I last charged it.

I also loved the package and I actually still use it.  I don’t store this toy in, but it makes a nice little place to keep some of my smaller toys when I store them so they don’t get lost in the bottom of a drawer.  It’s very sturdy.  I don’t really ever use the storage bag for this toy either, it has some other purpose now I’m sure though.

The New Run Down:

  • Toy Type:  Out-ie
  • Material:  Silicone
  • Size:  4? long; 1.5? wide
  • Price:  $130
  • Original Pros:  Awesome package; Storage bag; Nice silicone;  Good Vibration; Great shape; Good charge life
  • New Pros:  Package is great for other storage; Great shape; Good vibrations;
  • Originals Cons:  Annoying controls
  • New Cons:  Controls are slightly annoying
  • Original Rating:  5/5
  • New Rating:  5/5
  • Recommended:  Yes

I really love this toy and right now if you head over to Eden Fantasys you can get the Leaf Life for 25% off (or 30% if you add $20 bucks to your order), but only until the 31st.  If you’re not sure check out my original review for more details.

Follow Up Friday: Pure Joy Pleasure

The Pure Joy Pleasure

Today’s follow up is a product I’m a bit unsure of now, the Pure Joy Pleasure glass dildo.  I reviewed this about six months ago.  When I reviewed it, I loved the shape and texture, but my current preferences are for a smoother texture.  I still like the Pure Joy Pleasure, but it is definitely not something I use very often.  The texture is a bit extreme and can make heavy thrusting a bit painful and rough.  This is definitely a toy for slow gentle thrusting with lots of lube.  I do feel that it has more of a g-spot curve than before after using it again.

The New Run Down:

  • Toy Type:  In-ie, Dildo
  • Material:  Glass
  • Size:  7″ total length; 5.5″-6″ insert-able; 1.5″ in diameter
  • Price:  $59.95
  • Original Pros: Glass; Very pretty; Unique shape; Lots of texture; Can stand up on its base;  Good size; Safe for be; Pretty easy to clean
  • New Pros:  Still pretty, Good for g-spot stimulation; Easy to clean
  • Original Cons:   No storage bag; May be too much texture for some; I would like more of a curve
  • New Cons:   No storage bag; Too much texture
  • Original Rating:  4.5/5
  • New Rating:  4/5
  • Recommended:  Still yes, if you like a lot of texture

Follow Up Friday: The C Spot

 

The C-Spot in my hand

Today I thought I’d do a follow up review on the first toy I got from a company to review, The C-Spot from Good Vibrations.  I was really excited to get my first product to review and I didn’t really care if it was awesome or not.  I will probably always remember the toy just because it was my first to review, but I won’t remember it for being a great toy.  Since I reviewed the C-Spot, I haven’t touched it, besides to put it in a bag of stuff I didn’t want for props for my friends photo shoots.

 

I’ve seen many toys shaped like this one and I just don’t think the shape works out well.  Plus it was loud and a very buzzy vibration so if that’s not your thing, I’d highly recommended saying your $22 on this one.

Follow Up Friday: Libido Lift

I know on Eden Fantasys, they have a follow-up review system, but I never really considered doing it on my blog until my friend over at BuzzonVibes started doing a Follow Up Friday.

So for my first follow up I’m going to talk a bit about the Libido Lift Lubricant.  It was one of the first things I ever reviewed on my blog.  I was excited to try it out and well, it was my first major disappointment in the sex toy world.  I had gotten it before I had even started to review, and it was just bad.  I’ve found so many other lubes that totally rock my world and it’s really obvious now that this crap just sucks donkey balls.  So in the trash it goes (with the rest of my spring/move cleaning).
