The Perfect Bullet Vibrator: We-Vibe Tango Review

June 01st, 17   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   No Comments »

We-Vibe Tango Review

Don’t underestimate this little guy because of its size. Similar in width to a standard bullet vibrator at less than an inch, the We-Vibe Tango shoves a whole lot of power into a very small package. Entirely waterproof and made of body-safe plastic with a flat edge for pinpoint stimulation, this toy is slightly longer in length than a standard bullet – but not by much. This waterproof bullet vibrator is magnetically rechargeable with an included USB cable.

Like a lot of the We-Vibe products and presentation, the packaging for the We-Vibe Tango looks quite clean. The box’s top pulls off to show off the plastic vibe sitting in its own molded tray. All of the accessories are under the tray. The box doesn’t look crass or particularly sexual, but it does make it clear exactly what’s inside the toy, so it may not be a good storage place if you must be extremely discreet. The box is, however, very sturdy, so it stacks particularly well. The We-Vibe Tango comes with a drawstring bag (for storage), the magnetic charging cord and tip, and instructions about how to operate the toy (the same instructions included with the We-Vibe Touch).

While the Tango vibrator looks basic in design, all of that design works with its purpose. The hard plastic shell of the toy transfers vibrations particularly well. The small, slender design fits into small areas like between the vaginal lips or into a strap-on harness to provide pleasure in tight spots. The single-button control structure allows for the vibrator to be so small – and for the We-Vibe Tango to be easy to control. The We-Vibe Tango fits fine into the base of my Tantus dildos, my Spareparts harnesses, and my Fuze dildos. So, again, it’s about the “standard” width of most bullet vibrators – though it is a bit longer in length. While the We-Vibe Tango looks particularly understated, it’s pretty well-known in the sex review blogger sphere for being one of the most-powerful and easy-to-use bullet vibrators out there.

The Tango is an entirely rechargeable vibrator experience. Judging by how popular other We-Vibe magnetic charging toys have been, it seems that We-Vibe has chosen to stick with the magnetic charging design. Just press the magnetic charging port up against the base of the Tango, and the toy will charge. As you can see in the photos, the magnetic strength is well, surprisingly strong. I can dangle the vibrator just by holding the charging cable, and it holds on strong – even while swinging the cable. This isn’t going to be one of those toys that disconnects itself with a breeze over your bedside table. A full charge takes about an hour and a half, and the light on the vibrator turns off when it’s done charging. Easy peasy. I haven’t managed to kill the battery in a single sitting, but We-Vibe says it’ll go for 2 hours on the full charge. (Though the vibrator in front of me with a blinking yellow/orange light that tells me the battery is low.)

Controlling your new bullet vibrator isn’t very difficult either. That’s because the Tango just uses a simple single button on the base to control the entire toy. That’s it. Press the button, and the vibrator turns on. A single button press will cycle through the power intensities. Hold down the control button, and the vibrator turns off. That’s it. Very, very simple, but it’s also very very easy to use. The button presses down easily with a satisfying “click”, but I’ve never had a problem getting it pressed or having it accidentally get pressed. You definitely have to intentionally go for the button – even when used in a strap-on harness, the setting has never gotten changed on me.

We-Vibe Tango Review

When it comes to the vibrations, though, you probably won’t find any stronger, deeper vibrations in any bullet vibrator anywhere. It’s clear how the We-Vibe Tango earned its reputation. The vibrations aren’t buzzy. They aren’t surface-like. They’re strong and pulsating. As long as you don’t require a wand massager or other types of intense vibrations, this should be more-than-enough for orgasm. It’s stronger and more rumbly than alot of the 7 or 8″ vibrations that I’ve touched. It’s impressive.

Now, be aware that, if holding this in a hand, your fingers will probably go numb after awhile. However, the opposing side doesn’t provide the same “numbing” sensation. If I hold the toy against my palm with the other hand, the “usable” end doesn’t numb my palm. The fingers, however, holding the toy, will get a bit numb. I imagine it’s because the toy noticeably shakes and vibrates at the “usable” end while the end where I’m holding, near the button, is held stationary by the hand. This is part of what makes the vibrations so darn rumbly and powerful, though, so it’s a perfect trade-off.

For me, the We-Vibe Tango has been perfect for use in my strap-on harnesses. It negates having to hold the vibrator, and even when the toy is turned off, it provides a nice, hard surface that can fit perfectly between the body and the dildo (depending on the pocket placement on the harness). Of course, its small size also lends itself well to traveling, people who require a lot of discretion, use in dildo vibrator-holes, or just those who don’t really need or want a giant vibrator in order to orgasm.

The only thing that could make strap-on use better was if it had a way to wirelessly operate the toy. Reaching into the harness to press the control button can be frustrating when it needs to be done. But it’s totally worth.

As the Tango is entirely waterproof, clean-up is actually pretty simple. There’s no texture to the Tango, so it’s really just a matter of wiping the surface of the toy clean. You can do this however you please – including a washcloth with anti-bacterial soap, giving it a soap bath, or anything else. Plastic is pretty resilient, and partnered with a waterproof surface, it’s really easy to take care of. If you choose to use any lubricant with the toy, it’s compatible with anything you can throw at it. For storage, it doesn’t really have any specific requirements, but I’d recommend storing it somewhere with the charger. The drawstring bag will store all of it.

Overall, the We-Vibe Tango is a fantastic toy – including all of the changes the company has made with the recent versions to the charger. While small and unassuming, every aspect of its design has clearly been crafted to provide very strong and easy-to-use vibrations in a very slender package. Worthy of its reputation, this is probably one of the strongest bullet vibrators out there – and it’s well-crafted and bound to last you a long, long time. This one isn’t going into storage at my place – it’s going straight into my strap-on harness stuff for continual use. To be honest, if you regularly use bullet vibrators and love strong vibrations, this is a bit of a must-have for your toybox. Thanks to Lubezilla for providing this powerful bullet vibrator for my We-Vibe Tango Rechargeable Mini-Vibe review.

Perfect for Pet Play: “Puppy” Cock Ring Review!

May 25th, 17   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   No Comments »
"Puppy" Cock Ring

“Puppy” Cock Ring

Especially for those in love with puppy play, the Cock Ring DOG-Balls from MEO.de is going to be a well-loved treat. Available in diameters from 1.6″ to 2.2″, this aluminum ring features a bone-shaped tag that hangs from the ring engraved with the word “Puppy”.

The packaging for the Puppy Play cock-ring is pretty basic. It comes in a sealed plastic bag. You’ll need to destroy the plastic bag to get the ring out, so the bag doesn’t work for long-term storage.

"Puppy" Cock Ring

Thickness of the “Puppy” Cock Ring versus the thickness of the tag itself

This puppy play cock ring includes a very simple design. There’s a large, rounded ring that serves as the cock ring, and with the ring’s thickness, there’s a hole through the base of the ring that allows a small D-ring to hang off of. Off of this D-ring, there’s a dog-bone-shaped tag that reads “Puppy”. All of the pieces are made from aluminum or a metal – none of it feels like cheap plastic.

"Puppy" Cock Ring

Extremely smooth ring on the “Puppy” Cock Ring

The concern about metal cock rings is usually whether the material is entirely smooth. MEO.de has done a fantastic job with this ring, and it is. The aluminum has absolutely no raised edges on it; it doesn’t even have a “seam”. The edges of the ring are rounded as well; nothing will be sharp or jagged to cut the skin. Nothing should catch the pubic hair, either. Unless you happen to beat the odds and accidentally get a hair caught in the hole for the D-ring, this ring shouldn’t snag any pubic hairs unless you’re tugging them against the ring itself. With lubricant, though, the ring becomes pretty smooth, so it’s hard to snag things.

I’m actually surprised by how light this cock ring is too. The aluminum of the ring is extremely light-weight. It will definitely restrict blood flow, but I’ve been told that it doesn’t feel like it’s “pulling” down on the entire area like other metal cock rings do. It’s about as light as a thinner silicone ring – and that’s including the fact that it has an entire “Puppy” tag hanging off of it.

"Puppy" Cock Ring

“Puppy” Cock Ring

Now, you do need to be experienced with couple’s rings if you want to play with this toy. This is unforgiving aluminum. It doesn’t stretch, and it doesn’t have any give. This makes it a particularly effective cock ring, but it also means that you need to know how to put on and remove cock rings before you should really go with a ring that’s entirely one, rigid metal. The point of a cock ring is to be snug and restrict blood flow, so you want to make sure that you can get the ring off when you want – and get it put on too.

The “Puppy” tag doesn’t get in the way of using the ring. It was added in a hole through the metal of the ring, so there’s no contact with the D-ring itself. The “Puppy” tag dangles freely, however, so during penetration or movement, it will move/bang/hit with sharp movements of the hips. Since the tag isn’t particularly heavy, it’s not a danger or discomfort to the perineal area. With each movement of the tag hitting the D-ring, you’ll also get a bit of a metal “cling” noise, so if you’re looking to embarrass your partner with a tell-tale puppy-like collar sound, it works particularly well.

How well it functions as a cock ring will depend on your own anatomy. For us, it worked just fine. It can be a bit hard to put on at first, but a good application of lube really helps it slide on a lot better. The MEO.de website offers this cock ring in multiple sizes to help you best pick the best size for your own “puppy”. Make sure to do the measurements to have the best chance of a good, comfortable fit for your partner.

Since the Puppy cock ring is almost entirely made from a single piece, it’s extremely easy to clean. Just use warm water and anti-bacterial soap and give it a rinse-down in any bath of water. You could use a very gentle cloth or brush if you wanted to clean in the crevices but take care to choose a gentle material to ensure you don’t scratch the surface. The cock ring easily cleans up and its small size makes it very discreet to store as well.

Overall, if you enjoy pet play in the bedroom, this cock ring for pet play is going to be a good purchase. It feels high-quality, does a good job of restricting blood flow to the area, and was made in a very practical manner that displays the “puppy” tag without getting in the way of the use of the ring. Thanks to MEO.de for providing this puppy play sex toy for my Cock Ring DOG-Balls review.

What to Do If you Fall in Love with Your Casual Sex Partner

May 25th, 17   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   No Comments »

No-strings sex dating is very popular these days, thanks to the glory of the internet. A lot of people find it easier to meet for a quick bit of fun rather than going into a fully committed relationship, and we can’t blame them! In fact there exists a great compromise between having sex with strangers and being in a relationship with someone: you’ve probably heard the term ‘fuck buddy’ before. Having that person that you can call upon when the urge strikes you is in fact the most convenient way one could have sex outside of a committed relationship; there is no commitment but you can still feel comfortable with each other (and of course, don’t forget about safe sex!). Sounds like the best of both worlds, but what happens if you start developing feelings beyond lust?

It’s just sex?
The root of the agreement between two friends with benefits is that they will have sex together: nothing more and nothing less. Fuck buddies get together for fun and also the knowledge that they can trust that person. That agreement implies some degree of complicity, which we can argue goes a little beyond the act of just getting naked and having fun. It will probably will start quite simply between two friends, but the situation often gets more complicated.
So this may be the first way you can simplify your no-strings-attached set-up: instead of having sex with friends, why not just meet people online instead? You can use sex dating sites like www.no-strings-sex.com and find people whom you don’t have a previous emotional attachment with. Because when it comes to friends, we often get closer than we think we will, and it’s easy to let our emotions get the better of us. When it comes to friends, you already know the hobbies you share, their personality you enjoy, and more. After all, that’s why so many relationships start as friendships in the first place!

How to deal with it?
So let’s say you’re having feelings for you fuck buddy that go way beyond simple lust. Most people don’t feel like confessing that idea because you don’t want to mess up a good thing. Well the truth is that it’s already too late. It’s likely not going to be healthy to repress what you feel. Your best thing to do is just to come forwards and say it to be fair on you and your casual partner. Going in with different intentions is likely to cause a chasm between the two of you – and drama down the road. So if you feel love, just tell them and be ready to break up the arrangement if the feeling isn’t mutual. Sex is going to get more complicated over time if the two of you have different goals.

There is also the situation where you fuck buddy is falling in love with you; it certainly can be a whole lot more complicated when it’s the other way around. What do you do when you don’t feel the same? Again, as soon as you notice it, your best thing to do is just to ask them about their feelings. Basically you really don’t want to be with someone just for sex if they feel more than you do. Again, it is simply not fair on them. Furthermore, knowing that they love you and still using them for sex is wrong, it enters in the realms of manipulation, and it certainly isn’t going to feel good for anyone involved when you’re outside of the bedroom. This imbalance of feelings can only lead to complications- which is what everyone is trying to avoid by no-strings-attached relationships, right?

Doing the right thing
Just like when you love someone, lusting for them can be a hard thing to let go of. After all, lust is a very strong feeling. Heck a lot of us probably confuse those two feelings because they are so intense, but confessing feelings ahead of time will lead to less drama and complications down the line – even if you have to find a new way to fulfill your sexual desires. Don’t let sex turn into a negative thing. After all, it is one of the most enjoyable activities out there!

Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System Review

May 09th, 17   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   No Comments »
Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System

Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System

Designed for partial suspension – and for a more comfortable above-the-head bondage session – the Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System includes almost everything you’ll need for an above-the-head binding. Including a heavy steel bar and Nubuck leather suspension cuffs along with all of the required chains, all that’s left for you to provide is a sturdy attachment point as well as weight-bearing carabiner clips. This set is designed to support up to 200 pounds of weight.

Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System

Cuffs that come with the Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System

Ready to play and safely transported to you, the Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff system comes in two separate pieces. The pieces themselves are shipped from Shop Kinky Toys in a long, discreet brown box with no mention of where the items are coming from. The black metal bar and chain are wrapped together in bubble wrap while the two cuffs are wrapped together in separate bubble wrap. There is no manufacturer’s packaging, and they do not come with instructions.

Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System

Showing how the cuffs attach to the bar

The Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System comes with a couple pieces that easily come together to form the entire system. The black metal bar comes attached to a length of chain that runs to a single binding point to be able to hang the system. The set also comes with the two suspension cuffs – each cuff includes the cuff itself along with the chain that attaches it to the point and a foam-covered wood bar for wrapping the fingers around. The set does NOT include anything to attach the cuffs to the black metal bar.

How the Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System comes packaged

It’s worth nothing that this set does NOT come with everything you need in order to play with the set. Take note that it does NOT include anything to attach the suspension cuff’s chain to the black suspension bar. You will need to provide that on your own. I’d recommend weight-bearing caribiners – likely from your local sporting goods’ store. Make SURE they are designed to hold weight. Don’t just go around grabbing crappy keychain-designed caribiners. There’s no reason to mess around with your partner’s safety on this one. (And if safety isn’t enough of a motivator, just imagine how silly you’ll look when your partner is just magically “set free” by an equipment failure)

Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System

Another view of the cuffs

This set uses a single overhead point to “hang” your suspension cuff system. If you plan on suspending ANY weight from it, make sure your overhead point is extremely sturdy and able to hold someone’s body weight multiple times over. However, if you’re just looking to use the cuffs to hold someone’s hands in place, you can get away with a much lighter-intensity bondage point such as a decently-hung eyebolt in the ceiling for potted plants. Again, though, make sure you don’t place any amount of someone’s weight on an ill-hung bondage point. That’s exactly how you end up taking down part of your ceiling – and possibly injuring your partner in the process.

Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System

Padding on the comfort grip areas

For those that can’t make any permanent modifications to their living situations, we’ve also found some success with “over the door” systems. Being careful to ensure very little “banging” against the door or wall (to avoid marks on those surfaces), you can use an over-the-door hook or over-the-door workout system to hold this set in the air for use. However, you’ll want to ensure that the top of the Suspension Cuff System is FIRMLY attached to your above-head point, and you’ll likely need to place your victim in a “chair” in order to actually have their hands be above their heads with the system. It can, however, work just fine. If you want more flexibility, make sure to consider a freestanding sex swing/suspension frame. Those would offer the most flexibility possible if you’re unable to make modifications to your living area.

Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System

Soft interior of the Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System

A big consideration for a set like this is the comfort of the cuffs and wrist restraints. A lot of weight is going to be placed in this area, so you want your captive to feel at least somewhat comfortable. These cuffs are lined in a soft faux fur lining that offers a nice cushion against the skin. The “grips” are short pieces of thick wood that are covered in a thick foam. The cuffs themselves feature a regular belt-like buckle – but they do not include a locking buckle.

Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System

Another view of how the cuffs connect to the bar of the Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System

As for the comfort, they do decently well. We own other cuffs that feel slightly more comfortable than these, but these do feel pretty sturdy and well-made. If you wanted to spend way outside this price point, you likely could find a “better” system with higher-quality cuffs. However, for the price point, the cuffs do feel like they fit in great, an they do their job well – restraining your partner comfortably while offering a comfortable place for them to grip with some of their bodyweight. Depending on how much your captive squirms around while placed in these, the edges of the cuffs have a habit of unaligning and getting somewhat itchy, but a quick adjustment from the dominant fixes that really well.

The Suspension Cuff System has multiple parts that come apart. This offers a whole lot more flexibility. While the cuffs (and the handles to the cuffs) are entirely one unit, the black suspension bar (with its upper chain) are an entirely different unit. This means you can pull off the suspension cuffs at any point and use the black suspension bar for anything else – possibly other cuffs, some rope, or hanging things from. It offers a bit more flexibility than if the entire system was one, large attached piece.

Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System

Non-locking buckles

When it comes to suspension purposes, we had the chance to try this out at a local dungeon a couple weeks back. We did not, however, put someone’s full weight onto it. The legs were suspended while the Comfort Grip Leather Suspension Cuff System was used to hold the upper body’s weight. It definitely did a-okay with holding the person’s body weight. However, it wasn’t the most comfortable for the person (being suspended purely by arms and legs), so addition support was added near the waist. It was good to know that the item can hold partial body weight on its own though. (A 160 pound “suspect” was used.)

For non-suspension purposes, it works pretty comfortably as well. As mentioned before, the cuffs feel pretty comfortable and secure around the wrist. Since you’ll be able to adjust your ceiling bondage point for anyone’s height, the cuffs can also be adjusted to any variable height to be the “right’ head for your partner’s height. However, be aware that holding the arms above the head for long periods of time can still reduce bloodflow and make limbs numb, so be prepared to give your partner a little “let the blood flow come back” break in the middle of your scene if you’re planning something lengthy.

Since this Suspension Cuff System uses a single hooking point at the top of the chain to put up the system, it’s easily removed from the hook after you’re done. This makes it particularly discreet if you don’t happen to have a “sex dungeon” hanging out at your place. Just get a chair, pull the system off of the hook, and you’re good to go. Again, though, please make sure to fasten it securely enough that the Suspension Cuff System isn’t going to fall off of your ceiling point. If it does fall, it’s likely to slam your partner straight in the top of the head – and you’re not going to look really sexy if that happens. The system easily goes up and down, though, for effortless bondage. It’s literally a “less than 10 seconds” solution. Hook the cuffs to the carabiners (you provided) to the suspension bar. The suspension bar’s chain then gets hooked to a ceiling point. Done.

When it comes to cleaning, you don’t have much to do. You’ll likely want to gently wipe down the interior and exterior surface of the cuffs with a slightly damp washcloth. You’ll want to do the same with the hand grips. I’d avoid taking too much soap or liquid near these to avoid harming the material. A slightly damp washcloth should clean up most sweat. As mentioned before, the entire system can be pulled off the ceiling for easy storage; you’ll just need a spot that’s long enough to fit a long, unyielding 36″ metal bar. In a corner of the closet or behind a dresser works just fine.

Overall, the Suspension Cuff System does exactly what it promises to do – it provides a supportive and comfortable way to partially suspend some of your partner’s body weight. I wouldn’t use it to suspend all of your partner’s body weight (if only out of comfort!), but it can be used in a variety of ways without that. Easy to put up and take down, the system offers some flexibility in that the pieces can be taken apart. It’s frustrating that it doesn’t come with all of the required items to use it straight out of the packaging, but it only takes a simple trip to the store to easily have everything you want to start playing right away. The system is easy to use, the cuffs are comfortable, and you’re going to find that this makes for an easy and comfortable way to restrain your partner’s wrists above their head.
