Review: Bound To Please Nipple Suckers

I really like the concept of nipple toys, but most have been disappointing.  I have a set of the squeeze nipple suckers that I like okay, but there’s a limited amount of suction you can get with them.  When I came across the Bound To Please Nipple Suckers, I had to have a pair.  It took a while, but I finally got my paws on a set to review from Good Vibrations.

The Run Down:

  • Toy Type:  Nipple toy
  • Manufacturer:  Kink Lab
  • Materials:  ABS Plastic
  • Size:  1.5″ in diameter; 3″ in length
  • Price:  $24.00
  • Pros:  Easy to adjust the suction; Can be used on places other than nipples; Clear cylinder to see the effects of the suction
  • Cons:  Little long; Difficulty sticking to larger breasts; Can be difficult to use on yourself
  • Overall Rating: 3.75/5
  • Recommended: Yes

Review: Midnight Desire Pleasure Wand

I haven’t been a fan of wand style vibrators because they tend to be much too strong for me.  However, I couldn’t resist the cuteness of the mini wand sold by Good Vibrations, the Midnight Desire Pleasure Wand (also known as the Mini Magic Wand I believe).

  • Toy Type:  Out-ie
  • Manufacturer:  Vibratex
  • Includes:  Wand and storage pouch
  • Materials:  Silicone and ABS Plastic
  • Size:  6″ total length; Handle – 4″ long; Head –  1.5″ long, 1.125″ diameter
  • Price:  $49.00
  • Pros:  Packaging isn’t huge; Small and compact; Nice color; Silicone
  • Cons:  Probably not strong enough for something; A bit buzzy on high; Neck
  • Intensity: 3/5
  • Volume: 2/5
  • Overall Rating: 4/5
  • Recommended: Yes
