Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator Review

Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator

Of course, it wouldn’t take long until ‘technology” managed to squirm its way into sex toys, and the Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator by CalExotics (and sold by BoudoirNoir) is one of those such toys. Equipped with 10 vibration patterns, this vibrator’s intensity level is controlled by how much pressure is currently squeezing the shaft. More pressure means stronger vibrations. The vibrator is made from body-safe silicone and is entirely waterproof. The toy is rechargeable, and it’s 6.5″ in length with a diameter of 1.5″. The Luxe Touch-Sensitive vibrator is available in multiple color options. This silicone vibrating dildo also features a multi-functional base that lends itself well to suction cup use and strap-on harness use.

I was a bit surprised by how large the Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator packaging was. The dildo itself isn’t particularly thick or long, but the packaging is one of the largest boxes I’ve ever seen a sex toy come in. (I’m talking about the sex toy’s packaging – not the shipping packaging) Inside the box, you’ll find the vibrator sitting in a foam tray specifically designed for its shape. The toy also includes a charging cable. Otherwise, it seems like a surprisingly large box for the small amount of stuff that the box actually contains. Regardless, the box is pretty sturdy, and it can be used to store the sex toy as long as you don’t require the box to be entirely discreet.

The Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator has a pretty basic design. The entirety of the toy is made of silicone. There’s a very, very small seam that runs around both sides of the dildo, but honestly, you’re not going to notice it during use. There’s no texture on the shaft itself, and the only design change is the very, very slight pronounced head at the tip. There’s a single control button at the base of this touch-sensitive vibrations dildo. Pressing the button turns the toy on and allows you to cycle through all of the vibration modes. Holding the button down will turn off the toy.

As you’ll notice from the photos, the Luxe vibrator offers a nice, wide, flared base. This base lends itself well to a couple uses. For one, the concave design at the base allows the base to function as a suction cup. Press this toy up against a flat surface, it sticks particularly well. I haven’t had much luck making it stick on walls without any extra support, but it sticks on floors or other tiled/bathroom surfaces without any problem. Just don’t make it fight gravity.

In addition to that, the Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator also works particularly well in a strap-on harness. The base is nice and thin underneath the layer of the harness, so it doesn’t poke painfully into the vulva or abdomen. That being said, if you’re someone that tends to “grind” into the base to receive your own stimulation during strap-on sex, I’d recommend adding another vibrator or other sensation-causing item into your harness as the concave design of this base makes it difficult to make regular contact with the base during penetration. However, it’s extremely comfortable to strap-on.

Like previously mentioned, this vibrating touch-sensitive sex toy is entirely rechargeable. There’s a small rechargeable port on the base opposite the control button. The Luxe comes with a decent-length USB cable that plugs into the base of the toy and charges it. It will take about 4 hours for a full charge, and the vibrator will run at the highest speed for an hour on a single charge. It will run on the lowest speed for 1.5 hours. You’ll likely get about an hour and fifteen minutes out of a single charge during use since it will likely not be on the highest intensity the entire time.

I was a bit surprised to find that this touch-sensitive vibrator seems to respond to pressure throughout the entirety of the shaft. The toy DOES respond. The claims of “touch-sensitivity” are not overstated. When pressure is applied to the first 5″ of the toy (counting from tip down towards the base), the vibrations throughout the entire toy get noticeably more intense – and when pressure is removed, the vibrations get softer again.

That being said, the intensity change isn’t a huge change – and it isn’t a mind-blowing change either. It’s almost double the vibration intensity from the “softest” setting to the “strongest” setting. Since the vibrations weren’t mind-blowing to begin with, this makes it just moderate in intensity at the strongest setting. That being said, it’s not a bad feeling. As most people are going to be using this vibrating dildo as a penetrative toy, this should be more-than-enough intensity to enjoy the vibrations inside your body. There’s no reason to need a wand massager’s intensity for dildo toys for most people.

Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator

I also haven’t been able to figure out how to adjust the vibration intensity manually. As far as I can tell, the vibration intensity can only be adjusted by pressure sensitivity on the shaft. The sex toy doesn’t seem to come with any instructions, and from the instructions written on the box, that seems to be the way the toy operates. For most casual use of the Luxe sex toy, this “touch-sensitive control only” design will likely be just fine. As you feel yourself getting tenser and tenser as you experience waves of pleasure, the vibrating dildo will up the intensity as well – all on its own with no command from you.

At the same time, if you’re someone who tends to depend upon internal vibrations (and their intensity increasing) to reach orgasm, you might find the Luxe to be somewhat frustrating. The inability to precisely control the intensity with the moderate-intensity vibrations might be a non-starter for you.

That being said, many users of penetrative toys like this aren’t using them as the “sole” focus of all of their pleasure. They tend to use a dildo alongside their hand, with a partner, or with other types of stimulation. With that type of use in mind, the Luxe offers a nice “set it and forget it” type of sensation to it – a vibrating sensation that will even get more intense as you tighten around it. For that use, it’s great.

Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator

Being entirely waterproof, the Luxe vibrating dildo is pretty simple to clean as well. We’ve honestly just taken it into the shower for a full clean after sex, but you can clean it however you’d like. Anti-bacterial soap with its entirely-smooth design makes this a very simple and easy toy to care for. A condom fits very comfortably over the toy for simple clean-up. Along with that, make sure to use water-based lubricant when slickening up this toy. For storage, the toy doesn’t come with a pouch or anything else. However, the box will work just fine for storage – but be aware that the box isn’t particularly discreet, and it’s particularly large for the size of the toy. You may wish to keep it in a pouch or plastic zipped baggie of your own.

Overall, the Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrating Dildo is going to be an amazing addition to play for people who don’t want to manually adjust the vibration intensity and who tend to use their dildo vibrations as an accessory to a “main event” – and not the focus itself. The toy itself is fun to play with, and the touch sensitivity responds pretty well, but being unable to manually adjust the intensity can make it occasionally very frustrating when a “little boost!” would get you to the finish line. As such, with its good functions, silky-soft silicone, and versatile base, I find that the Luxe vibrator is a fantastic choice for people who tend to use vibrations in a dildo as “icing on the cake” and not the main focus itself. Thanks to BoudoirNoir for providing this vibrating touch sensitive dildo for my Luxe Touch-Sensitive Vibrator Dildo review.

MEO.de Dog Play Leather Bone Review

November 03rd, 17   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   No Comments »

Leather Puppy Play Dog Bones

When you’re looking for a fun and authentic puppy play experience, it doesn’t get much more authentic than letting your “pup” play around with some toys! While real-life dog bones are much too tough for human teeth, this leather alternative can provide all of the fun with a safe, padded, soft toy. The Dog Play Leather Bones from MEO.de are made from Nappa leather, and they come in a small and large size. Each bone is stuffed with some stuffing for a fluffier bone. The small bone measures in at 6.5″ in length, 4″ in width, and 3.5″ circumference around the bitey area. while the large bone is noticeably larger at 8″ in length, 4″ in width, and 5.25″circumference around the bitey area. As you can tell from the photos, each bone has a unique and different appearance as well.

Like all MEO.de items, your bone will come packaged in a see-through plastic bag. This bag has no information outside of warehouse information and the item’s name. This bag must be destroyed in order to get the bone inside, so it’s not a great long-term storage idea. However, these bones fit fine into a gallon-sized plastic baggie, so I’d recommend one of those for storage.

Leather Puppy Play Dog Bones

These bones look pretty durably-made. Since human teeth can’t rip things apart like canine teeth can, even at your worst, your “pup” likely shouldn’t be able to destroy these bones with any sort of ease. The bones are nice and fluffy, and aside from the stitching area that isn’t uniform with the rest, the stitching and design of the bones look great. The Small bone has more of a noticeable “bone” design while the Large bone just looks a lot more thick.

However, I was surprised to see that some of the dog bone seams aren’t entirely lined up. While it doesn’t affect the use of the BDSM Puppy Play Bone, it does make the bone look a lot more sloppy and unfinished. This un-matching seam was present on both bones, but it does give somewhere for the teeth to easily “grip” to carry around the bone without stretching out the mouth.

If you’re looking for a more “authentic” puppy bone experience, I’d highly recommend the smaller bone. The smaller bone seems to have a lot more of the realistic mouth-to-bone ratios, and it also has a much smaller width which makes it easier to fully grasp in the mouth. If you’re a larger “breed” who wants a larger bone, feel free to go with the larger one, but be aware that it doesn’t quite have the same true-to-life ratios as bones-to-canines that the smaller bone seems to have.

That being said, the larger bone is noticeably, well, large. It’s not an easy size to fit into the mouth. If you use larger gag sizes or know you have a larger mouth, the bone will likely fit in there just fine, but remember that you’re likely going to be picking up these bones off the floor/furniture without hand assistance, so if you have a smaller mouth, you might find more realism in using the Small size. The Large size bone is hard for me to get into my mouth without hands, and my partner says it’s a noticeable stretch for him. So keep that in mind. And if in doubt, consider bunching up your clothing to the same diameter measurement and trying to chomp into that to see if the Large leather bone will be a good fit for you.

Leather Puppy Play Dog Bones

As these bones are made from leather, you should be aware that they’re not going to be the most sanitary toys to share. Make sure your puppies are okay swapping saliva with whomever you choose to share these leather bones with.

Cleaning resembles how you’d choose to clean any other leather item in your collection. You’ll need to use specific leather cleanser, and I’d highly recommend letting the bone sit out for a few days before playing with it again to avoid too much of the cleanser getting ingested. However, some people like that taste, so play safely and within your preferences. I’d avoid submerging the bones in water, though. The stitching is great at keeping the stuffing in the bone, but I don’t think it will keep water out.

For storage, these bones are pretty simple. Just store these leather toys anywhere you’d like – but make sure you don’t accidentally crush them under anything. As long as you don’t flatten them or leave them out in direct sunlight for too long, they’ll be a-okay.

Overall, we’re particularly fond of the Small leather puppy play bone from MEO.de. It fits pretty easily into the mouth, is comfortable on the teeth, and is well-made enough to ensure most human pups aren’t going to tear it apart within the first couple of uses. You do have to be a bit more careful about care and cleaning of these bones, but it can be worth it to offer a realistic puppy play experience for your roleplaying partner. Thanks to MEO.de for providing this puppy play leather dog bone for my Dog Play Leather Bone review.

Leather Restraint Collar With Attached Cuffs Review

October 26th, 17   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   No Comments »

Sh! Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs

For a unique restraint experience, consider the Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs from Sh! Women’s Emporium. A leather “stocks-like” restraint, this collar has two attached, static wrist cuffs that hold the wrists up against the neck for upper body limb immobilization. Available in either leather or rubber, the collar and cuffs are 2″ in width for a more comfortable wearing experience. Typical of many of the Sh! Women’s Sex Toy Store items, this stock-style leather restraint is also available in multiple, fun colors in addition to the standard black. The collar fits a circumference of 14″ to 18.5″ while the cuffs fit a circumference of 5″ to 8″.

Sh! Women’s Store does a fantastic job of packing their in-house-made items. Your restraints will come wrapped in tissue paper to make for a lovely, elegant time opening your item. The item will be packaged in a plain, brown box for shipping. Be aware that there aren’t any instructions for your Leather Stock Restraints, but it’s pretty self-explanatory.

Sh! Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs

The Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs follows a pretty simplistic design – there’s a thick, leather collar, and attached to it, are two cuffs. The cuffs are static, and their angle cannot change. This means that it will basically force the wearer’s elbows out in front of them with their wrists right up against the neck/collar. For further bondage possibilities, the collar offers a single D-ring on the front of the collar. This D-ring is well-fastened against the leather, and it makes virtually zero noise (unlike some D-rings) as the wearer moves around. All of the buckles for the collar and wrist restraints are standard buckles with no locking buckles to be scene. However, once the wrists are securely fastened into the collar and cuffs, I wouldn’t expect your “captive” to be able to escape anyway. It’ll be near-impossible without third party help or destroying the restraint in some way.

When it comes to adjustability, the cuffs and collar will fit a decent size range. You might find yourself more limited by the wearer’s flexibility than the cuffs and collar themselves. It can be pretty stretching on the triceps to have the wrists up against the neck like this. I’m a bigger girl, and the cuffs and collar fit me with multiple open slots to spare. My slimmer partners have no problem with it – but they do wear it on the smallest setting. Even at a bit loose, though, it still restrains just fine.

Sh! Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs

And for durability? Your partner will have a pretty difficult time destroying this one. The biggest “weak” point would likely be the attached of the cuffs to the collar, and to solve this, Sh! used four (covered-on-both sides by leather) rivets to attach the cuffs to the collar. Outside of that, almost all of the high-tug areas feature added rivets – with all of the rivets that would touch the wearer’s skin being covered by another layer of leather. I’ve had absolutely no concerns about durability – even with someone tugging to the best of their ability.

As you can imagine, a “stock-style” restraint can start to be particularly tiring after a bit. For that reason, try to keep your play sessions on the shorter side with the Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs. While it’s pretty comfortable and fun to actually have against the skin, your wearer will likely find their hands starting to go numb or “tingly” from lack of blood flow after longer periods of time. Releasing the hands temporarily and putting them back in can solve that problem if you’re hoping to keep your partner in these restraints for a longer period of time.

You will also want to be careful about the wearer’s positioning. There’s no way for them to safely fall, and they will likely break an elbow (and more) if they land hard on their face. For that reason, using this restraint while fully (and safely!) standing or while sitting or laying tends to be the safest (and most comfortable) for the bottom. Many wearers are going to find themselves losing a bit of their balance with their hands forced into a stocks-like position.

For example, this is a fun leather stocks restraint I’d use at home while in a seated or well-secured scene – not for dragging my partner around a busy play party.

With how long the wearer will be in this bondage implement, how comfortable it is? Well, aside from the positioning issues (which is likely what’s going to cause you two to take off the restraint), the collar and cuffs itself is comfortable. The leather does feel like unbreathable leather against the skin, but it’s slightly softened (though not plushy). The thicker bands help make the restraint feel more comfortable and less pinchy, and it’s always been the positioning of the wrists – not the feel of the collar and cuffs itself – that make my partners want to tap out of this one.

Sh! Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs

When it comes to cleaning a leather restraint like this, you’ll want to treat it like typical leather. It shouldn’t be dunk or submerged in water very often. Use leather cleaner, or if you don’t have that, use a slightly-damp washcloth to wipe down the surface of the material. It goes along the neck and skin, and it makes sense that there may be a build-up of oils, but if you wipe it down often, your leather cuffs should continue to feel relatively clean. However, try to avoid getting bodily fluids or lubricants on the restraints if you can manage it. For storage, try not to flatten the leather or circular design. Aside from that, feel free to store it virtually anywhere as long as it’s not cramped and not in direct sunlight.

Overall, the Captive Collar and Cuffs in Leather do exactly as they’re designed to do – they hold the wearer in a “stocks-like” position without requiring use of an expensive stocks toy. The wider strap length makes them a bit more comfortable to wear, but still be aware that the wearer will still likely be only able to stay in this a half-hour to an hour. The D-ring on the front offers more bondage possibilities while the multitude of color selection lets you choose a restraint that matches your personal style. Thanks to Sh! Women’s Store for providing this neck and wrist restraint for my Leather Restraint Collar with Attached Cuffs review.

Paloqueth Vibrating Cock Ring Review

October 19th, 17   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   No Comments »

Paloqueth Vibrating Cock Ring

The Paloqueth Vibrating Cock ring is a hybrid between a functional, restricting cock ring and a large, clitoral vibrator. The stretchy (4.7″ stretchability!) TPR ring is attached to a 3″ vibrator that features 10 functions of vibration (3 steady vibration modes with 7 patterns). Fully waterproof, this toy is also rechargeable via the included USB cord. With a slight curve at the attachment point, this couple’s ring can be used for self-stimulation of the testicles or of the clitoris or other sensitive areas of a partner.

Since the cock ring ships from Amazon, expect your cock ring’s shipping to be entirely discreet. Inside the outer shipping box, the cock ring will be in a small, plain, unmarked brown box with a warehouse UPC. Inside the box, the cock ring is packaged tightly with an instruction book, an opaque purple mesh drawstring storage bag, and a USB charging cable.

Instead of the standard vibrating cock ring designed that’s designed to be “small”, the Paloqueth Vibrating Cock Ring decided to go another route. The cock ring’s attached vibrator is large and sticks out vertically away from the ring. The vibe is 3″ in length. This longer vibrator will allow the wearer to easily hit the pleasure points. When using the ring against a vagina, the Paloqueth Vibrating Cock Ring will be more likely to hit the clitoris. When using it solo, the toy will provide vibrations against the testicles. It isn’t just a small vibrator that only vibrates near the base of the cock. Instead, the larger vibrator allows the vibrations to reach a further area.

In addition to being a larger vibrator, the toy also features some textured bumps along its curved surface. These bumps look like they’re designed to add extra pleasure to the sensation of the vibrations. I find them more annoying and painful than pleasurable when the ring is used dry. However, they’re tolerable if you lubricate this area with water-based lubricant. I’d much rather the toy didn’t have them at all – as it adds an extra pain for cleaning and doesn’t add much to the sensation. If you tend to enjoy these little “ticklers” on other vibrators, though, you might enjoy their sensation on this couple’s ring. I find they’re a bit too tough and short to offer a lot of pleasure for me.

vibrating_cock_ring (3)

Unlike “disposable” cock rings or cock rings that require watch batteries, the Paloqueth Amazon cock ring is a reusable and rechargeable cock ring. The ring includes a waterproof charging port at the base of the vibrator portion. Plus the included USB charger into the ring and then plug it into a USB port (or a USB wall adapter). The vibrator will then charge. Charging the toy is extremely simple, and with charging the toy fully before every use or two, I’ve never had the battery die at an inopportune time.

The Paloqueth cock ring was designed to be as easy to use as possible. The vibrator has three different, easy-to-press buttons on the surface of the toy. Press and hold one of the buttons to turn the vibrator on or off. The other two buttons scroll through vibration patterns easily. (As-in, one of them is a “back” and one of them is a “forward” to control your choice of pattern.) This makes it simple to go back to a favorite pattern if you accidentally scroll past the one you were looking to enjoy.

Paloqueth Vibrating Cock Ring

The cock ring has a bunch of little lights on it. These lights will likely help you figure out what setting the ring is on – and they can be especially useful if you’re using this ring on a partner or aren’t feeling the vibrations at that particular moment. The backlit control area’s lighting follows the current pattern that the vibrator is on. That is, if you’re enjoying a gentle pulsation vibration, the backlight will also be gently turning on and off. There’s also an (unnecessary, but cool) light that scrolls through various colors that backlights the “Paloqueth” logo at the bottom of the toy.

I’m a bit surprised by the placement of the vibration control buttons. They’re nestled in the middle of the textured area designed to rest against the pleasure area (clitoris, testicles, etc.) This means that you’ll need to break contact with you (or your partner’s) skin in order to change the vibration or pattern level. Luckily, the connection point of the ring to the vibrator is pretty flexible, so it’s easy to twist this toy around and easily see the control buttons to change the patterns, but it’s definitely surprising that the company would choose to place the control buttons in the middle of the pleasure area – and in the middle of an area that’s likely to be covered in fluid and require extra cleaning.

Paloqueth Vibrating Cock Ring

When it comes to the vibrations, the Paloqueth Cock Ring might be a fantastic choice for you if you love buzzier vibrations. The vibrations on this cock ring definitely fall under “surface level”, and they can become too unpleasant for me to even feel on my fingers for more than 10 seconds. Even at the highest setting, the toy isn’t particularly strong. Many standard bullet vibrators offer a stronger and deeper sensation. Luckily, for many people, this cock ring may not be in contact with a body constantly as the toy moves away and towards the body with each thrust.

The vibrations can also be felt in the base of the penis through the ring itself, but it’s not nearly as powerful as touching the vibrator directly.

Don’t worry too much about the sound of this cock ring. It’s a pretty quiet ring. Even in a completely silent house, it’s impossible to hear this cock ring through a closed door. It’s a very discreet sound that gets even softer when pressed between two bodies.

With that being said, I think you can figure out that I don’t like the vibrations. They’re just more annoying and numbing than pleasurable. However, where I’ve found that the Paloqueth Vibrating Cock Ring can succeed is a pleasurable grinding surface. When lubricated and positioned right, vibrator portion offers a nice, large surface that can provide clitoral stimulation. With the right type of thrusting and stimulation, even without the vibrations, this toy can offer a grinding surface that can lead to hands-free orgasms in a way that other cock rings cannot.

What about putting on this cock ring? Like many cock rings, you’re going to want to avoid snagging your pubic hair. With this ring, the TPR material tends to tug hair a bit more than other types of rings. Reducing the snagging can be done a couple of ways. For one, make sure to lubricate the base of the penis and the ring of the cock ring with water-based lubricant. This makes it less likely to tug. Your other option is always to shave or trim pubic hair before wearing the ring. The water-based lubricant will reduce quite a few of the potential, painful tugs, though, so if you’d prefer to keep your pubic hair, just keep some good water-based lubricant around.

The ring might look particularly small unstretched, but this TPR stretches particularly nicely. I’ve been able to get it up to a decent, 3″ circle when using both hands. It’s definitely a two-hand installation job, but once it’s on, it does a decent job of restricting blood flow without being tight enough to be painful. This is definitely a ring that will act as a “ring” – and be tight enough to help increase your erection. Some of those jelly cock rings are more decorative than tightening.

Paloqueth Vibrating Cock Ring

Made of TPR material and waterproof, this vibrating couple’s ring is extremely simple to clean. Use warm water and anti-bacterial soap, and you’ll have a clean ring in no time. Make sure to take extra care around the textured bumps as this area will likely get a lot of bodily fluids in it. In fact, you may want to use a toothbrush or other soft-bristled item to clean between the texturing. If choosing to lubricate the ring for easier wear, make sure to use a water-based lubricant to avoid harming the surface of the ring. For storage, the original box or the included drawstring pouch both work fine for keeping this ring safe.

Overall, if you enjoy softer, surface vibrations, a textured surface, and are looking for a couple’s ring that will offer a wider area of stimulation, the Paloqueth Vibrating Cock Ring might be a good fit for you. Along with the added cock ring’s blood restriction, the ring offers a large, grindable surface to offer clitoral stimulation – even without the equipped vibrations. Thanks to Paloqueth for providing this vibrating cock ring for my vibrating penis ring review.
