TRUSKYN Tru Curve Silicone Dildo

TRUSKYN Tru Curve Silicone Dildo

Equipped with a g-spot curve that puts a lot of strap-on dildos to shame, the Platinum Silicone TRUSKYN Tru Curve Dildo is a silicone, body-safe dildo made by Doc Johnson. 6.5″ in total length with 6″ of insertable length and a diameter of 1.7″ at the widest point, this dildo is anal-safe and harness compatible. The toy is made with Dual Density silicone that offers a firmer inner core of silicone wrapped with a softer layer of silicone for more pliability.

Better than many Doc Johnson product packaging, the Tru Curve Dildo comes in a standard cardboard box with a plastic insert. The packaging isn’t spectacular, but it’s relatively informative and explains the toy and its features well. It could be used for long-term storage, but it is noticeably larger than the toy itself. Throwing away the package after getting your toy might be the best option. The toy also comes with a drawstring storage bag, a lubricant, and a “refreshing powder” for the toy.

I’ll admit that I have a bit of concern about the type of silicone that Doc Johnson used if it can use a “powder” dusted on the material to help the material feel like new again. This is partially my own ignorance, but I’ve never seen anything similar offered for 100% high-grade silicone toys like Tantus or FunFactory. This could be something new they’re trying, but it definitely makes me slightly wary.

Designed with a Dual Density silicone design, the Doc Johnson Tru Curve silicone dildo does FEEL great though. You can really feel the dual density silicone pours. It’s most noticeable near the base. The base is nice and firm, the dildo’s base shaft (near the base) is relatively firm, and the tip gets a bit more flexible. The toy does have a pretty good plushy feel to it. When you squeeze it, you get noticeably squeezing in. For those that don’t like a hard, rigid toy, this is fantastic. At the same time, while it’s a lot harder to bend the toy in half, the flexibility still allows the toy’s tip to touch the base when you use your hands. With proper use, the head mostly just slightly bends under any sort of pressure – but with the internal rigidity, it actually stays and rubs the g-spot surprisingly well.

Plain, flat base

Unlike some silicone toys, the Tru Curve dildo has more of a tacky silicone feel to it. It doesn’t feel silky smooth. It has that type of silicone that seems to “drag” along the skin. You’ll definitely need external lubricant to use this one; it absorbs most of your body’s natural lubrication relatively quickly.

Decently sized head on the TRUSKYN Tru Curve Silicone Dildo

While I tend to say that most “g-spot dildos” that have flexibility make relatively pour g-spot toys, the Tru Curve Dildo doesn’t fit that description. Partially because of the added rigidity and partially because of the very intense curve to begin with, the TruSkyn Tru Curve dildo doesn’t really “bend” under pressure. It still will have some flexibility to it that causes it to bend a bit, but the bend isn’t enough to reduce pressure to those sensitive areas. The ridging around the head will be especially noticeable. While I’m a bit more fond of toys that offer more slickness (like glass), this is easily a good replacement for some of my favorite g-spot toys becaues it reliably hits the spot – and it does it well with more plushiness than the rigid materials.

Showing the flexibility

While the Doc Johnson Platinum Silicone TruSkyn Tru Curve Dildo does offer a base, it may not be the best strap-on dildo out there. This is mostly because of the short length. While it has the base that would make it stay where you want it to stay, it doesn’t have a lot of length to it. It’s workable, but be aware that, once added to a harness, you may not get a whole lot of length for shallow sex positions. To make the best use of the length and design, I’d recommend positions that allow deeper access designed for g-spot pleasure.

As this Doc Johnson silicone dildo is made of pure silicone, cleaning this pink toy is a breeze. It just requires some warm water and anti-bacterial soap. Sterilization works just fine with boiling water or a water/bleach solution. I’d recommend using a water-based lubricant with this dildo, but some silicone-based lubricants may be safe for use with it. Just make sure that you do a small spot test near the base to ensure that it’s safe. Make sure to keep this toy in some sort of bag when not being used. The tacky-ness of the silicone tends to pick up a lost of dust and hair. A quick clean or rinse gets rid of most of it without any issue, however.

Packaging of the TRUSKYN Tru Curve Silicone Dildo

Overall, if you’re looking for a good silicone dildo that’s plushy, flexible, and will still hit the g-spot (that’s rare), I’d really recommend the Doc Johnson Platinum TRUSKYN Tru Curve dildo. The length doesn’t lend itself well to strap-on play unless you’re particularly cognizant of it, but the dildo itself is well-made and still quite affordable. Definitely worth considering. Thanks to SheVibe for providing this body-safe g-spot dildo for my TruSkyn Platinum Tru Curve Dildo review.

L’amourose Mya Beads Kegel Balls Review

L'amourose Mya Beads Kegel Balls

L’amourose Mya Beads Kegel Balls

Packaged together in a hard plastic storage case, the Mya Beads from L’amourose (and sold by SheVibe) are kegel balls designed to strengthen and tone the vaginal muscles. The set comes with a single kegel ball as well as a double kegel ball version. Made from plastic with a body-safe silicone functioning as the silicone girdle that holds the balls together and provides a retrieval string, these beads are offered in two different weights (and corresponding colors) to pick a size and weight that works best for your body and musculature. The double-ball version in each set weighs the same – choosing a weight amount will matter for the single ball version which is heavier in the Pro set.

The L’amourose Lite set is the lighter of the two. The single ball is 28g while the dual set is 76g. The Pro set is heavier. The single ball is 39g while the dual set is 76g.

The design of the balls

If nothing else, you’re going to find yourself very impressed by the packaging of the Mya Beads. Much like the luxury image the brand is designed to convey, the packaging makes you think of the high-quality aspects of the toy. The beads are packaged in a small, plastic carrying case that snaps closed to protect your toy. The exterior packaging includes a black, well-designed box that includes information about the toy itself. Of course, it also comes with instructions.

Most people are going to come around to choosing the Mya Beads for their luxurious presentation – and they do a fantastic job at that. The beads themselves have a marbled-like appearance, and the packaging adds to the luxurious approach. The silicone girdles feel nice and silky smooth, and once you open the kegel balls, you’re really going to feel like these are some of the most luxurious kegel beads that you’ve ever tried. The plastic has a smoothness to it – as does the silicone.

Everything included in the box

When you get around to inserting them, the Mya Beads continue to work just as nicely. The plastic slickens really nicely by just adding a bit of lubricant, and while the beads don’t have that classic “divet” where your finger can go on the end of the bead to push it in, it isn’t a problem at all. If anything, the slightly-oval design of the beads helps make the beads easier to push in. As the retrieval cord is made from a nice, sturdy silicone that doesn’t stretch, I don’t worry nearly as much about breaking the cord during retrieval. This thicker, less-stretchy cord feels a bit more noticeable if it ends up pressed against your body, but it’s minimally bothersome in exchange for a sturdier sensation.

Something about the Mya Beads feels a bit different than “standard” kegel balls. Without dissecting the balls, my guess is that the interior ball (the ball that rolls around inside the outer shell to provide sensation) is larger in size than most kegel balls. This means that the interior ball doesn’t move around nearly as much. You’ll still feel the noticeable movement when active or rolling around or switching from standing to sitting, but it’s a lot harder to notice during standard walking movements or anything that doesn’t tend to jostle your body around often. While most kegel balls don’t provide orgasmic movement with standard walking, you’ll still occasionally get that pleasurable sensation from the interior ball. The Mya Beads don’t seem to provide that for some reason. If you find the regular sensations from most kegel balls to be bothersome or distracting, the Mya Beads might be a solution for you, but for most people, I think the draw of kegel exercisers is that interior sensation – so this might become a problem quickly.

Flexibility of the silicone holder

When it comes to cleaning this kegel balls, I think I found that to be the biggest headache of the entire set. The “silicone girdle” doesn’t come off of the plastic balls. However, it does leave a noticeable, tactile seam along the entire sides of the balls. After use, I noticed that a regular cleaning didn’t clean out entirely along the seams. Using a toothpick quickly cleaned out the seam really nicely – but I don’t really like having to take that extra step just to clean my sex toy. The fact that the plastic balls don’t pop out of the silicone harness is probably my biggest complaint about the set. It may not be a deal-breaker for some, but you’ll want to ensure you have a toothbrush or toothpick to clean along the seams on a regular basis to ensure your Mya Beads stay clean and bacteria-free for your use.

Using warm water and anti-bacterial soap is all it requires to clean up your kegel balls after regular use. Like previously mentioned, make sure to use a good, detailed item to clean along the seams on a regular basis. After they’ve all dried, they fit perfectly into their plastic snap-shut case until you’re ready to use them again. When it comes to lubricant, I’d stick to water-based lubricant for ease of use, but if you’re willing to spot test to insure your silicone-based lubricant won’t harm the surface of the silicone girdle, you could use silicone-based lubricant instead.

Overall, while the Mya Beads have a gorgeous presentation and look lovely, they aren’t going to be the “must-have” beads for most. If you really love the idea of luxury and glamour, aren’t too fond of a lot of sensation from your kegel beads, and are okay with taking extra care cleaning your Mya Beads you could love them. The weights are pretty nice, they insert well, and they’re easy to remove as well. They just require a bit more effort than most kegel balls. Thanks to SheVibe for providing these vaginal exercise beads for my L’amourose Mya Beads review. At the moment, SheVibe doesn’t carry the L’amourose Mya Beads. However, they carry a huge selection of other kegel beads to suit your needs.

Rouge Garments Pink Padded Posture Collar Review

Rouge Garments Pink Padded Posture Collar

Rouge Garments Pink Padded Posture Collar

Designed for the pink-lover in anyone, the Rouge Garments Pink Padded Posture Collar is a bright and colorful alternative to standard black posture collars. Made from leather with plush padding on the interior side, this collar comes equipped with three D-rings and a locking buckle fastener. The collar has a 3″ width for optimal posture correction with a length of 16.5″.

This posture collar comes with minimal packaging. It will have a small tag attached to it, and Bondage Bunnies does a fantastic job packaging it – will come laying flat in an appropriately-sized box to ensure you receive your new pink collar is the best condition possible. Continuing to store it laid flat with no pressure on the padding would be best, but most people don’t have that amount of space available for a two-foot-long collar.

The first thing you’ll notice about the collar after you remove the tags is how well-made this collar is. This isn’t a cheap-feeling collar. The leather is reinforced in multiple places. The padding feels nice and fluffy along the interior of the collar. The holes in the buckle area are well cut. The entire collar seems to stand stiffly for optimal posture use. The D-rings are well sewn-on and don’t seem to be coming off anytime soon. The leather feels soft and nicely conditioned against the skin. It has a nice slickness to it. And of course, the pink leather is extremely vibrant and looks very feminine.

Very sturdy locking buckle

When it comes to bondage possibilities, this collar offers three separate D-rings. Each one of these D-rings is firmly attached to the collar with two sets of rivets and strong, thick leather. The center D-ring is right along the throat area with the two D-rings slightly off to the sides. It’s quite symmetrical and offers enough D-rings to do a leash and two cuffs or many other bondage possibilities.

Speaking of bondage options, the single buckle that fastens the collar is of a locking design. The locking mechanism includes a small, see-through circular hole. This hole allows you to slide a small lock (not included) into the buckle which will effectively lock the collar onto the wearer. If you choose not to lock the collar, the buckle still functions as a regular buckle. All of the pre-cut holes are nicely pre-cut, and the buckle slides through nicely. While it might take a bit of pressure the first couple times you use a particular hole, it starts to loosen up relatively quickly which makes putting on this pink posture collar a whole lot smoother.

High-quality construction

Like any posture collar, this collar does as advertised. It will force the wearer to continually look straight ahead. This collar doesn’t fall short on that job just because it’s pink. Both the top and the bottom of the width of the collar have been reinforced with thicker leather to ensure that it makes it uncomfortable for the wearer to look to the sides or look down. It WILL dig into the skin if you do – and that’s what it’s designed to do. To reduce any potential discomfort, make sure the wearer has fully extended their neck before putting on the collar. That gets the collar into the right position in the first place.

As far as comfort goes, while no posture collar is going to be entirely comfortable (as the entire idea to make the person unable to move their head), this collar does a great job of comfort through the padding. While this does make the collar warmer to wear (and you’ll definitely notice the cool breeze of non-collar wearing after you remove the collar), it keeps the collar from pressing too uncomfortably against the neck. The padding especially seems to help if a partner is using the collar with a leash. It reduces a lot of pressure on various areas of the neck that get “tugged” on as the leash pulls onto the collar.

Showing the thickness of the padding

However, as mentioned, the padding does cause the collar to feel a bit warmer, so I wouldn’t recommend this for all-day wear in a hot dungeon. It will start to feel itchy and uncomfortable after awhile unless the collar is removed and the area is wiped down with some chilled water on a regular basis.

When it comes to keeping this collar clean, you’ll want to do your best to ensure that it doesn’t get too dirty in the first place. As it’s made from leather, you don’t want to use harsh dish soaps on the material to avoid harming it. Instead, use a slightly damp washcloth and wipe down the leather material. Make sure you allow it to dry. You could also use leather cleaner and conditioner if you’d like. For storage, laying it entirely flat would be optimal, but if you want it to slowly adjust to your neck size, you may want to occasionally leave it fastened (but empty) at the size of your own neck. Be aware this may start to leave irreversible creases in the leather over time, though.

Overall, if you want a different color than the usual black for bondage items and you want something that’s affordable and good quality, the Rough Garments Pink Padded Posture Collar is going to be fantastic. You can lock it (if you want) and attach lots of other items (if you want). It might get a little warm if worn for too long, but it’s comfortable for leading someone around and does a fantastic job of keeping someone’s head facing entirely straight. I’d definitely recommend it. Thanks to Bondage Bunnies for providing this feminine posture collar for my Rouge Garments Pink Padded Posture Collar review.

Explore the World of ABDL through the Tykables Midwest-Based Location

August 02nd, 16   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   No Comments »

Tykables Illinois IL ABDL Diaper Store

If you pay attention to the news, you’ll occasionally see fetish-related content making itself into mainstream news. Whether it’s someone caught doing kinky things in public or a new BDSM club moving into the area, mainstream news likes to keep up on some of the “kinkier” sides of sexuality. The last couple of months, you might have heard about the diaper store, Tykables, run out of Mount Prospect, Illinois.

A Chicago suburb, this moderately-sized town now features a small, unmarked storefront (with frosted glass windows) that houses the company Tykables. A diaper production company that focuses on the adult baby aspect of diaper-wearing, their new location amazes you from the first step you take in it. Doubling as a decorated pick-up location and an office, the front-half of the store functions as a giant, adult-sized nursery. From the color scheme to the wall molding (strategically placed half-way up the wall designed to make you feel “small”), it’s clear that attention was paid to the tiny details for a more realistic experience.

The decoration isn’t where the nursery aspect ends. In fact, throughout the entire front-half of the location, you’ll find adult-sized childhood favorites such as a giant crib, a huge rocking horse, a home-made high-chair, a large play mat, and a bouncer. While the store doesn’t allow public use of the items, they take advantage of the look and feel of the area to better promote their line of Tykables items and adult diapers – and it certainly provides a comfortable, smiling atmosphere if you choose to pick up your diaper order here.

Speaking of their items, Tykables currently has their solo, flagship (and well-loved) disposable overnight diaper. Believing that the diaper can be done better, Tykables started off as the “Snuggies Waddler”. (in fact, if you look around, you can still find some of the older packaging around. Rebranded as “Tykables”, the company believes that wearing diapers is as much about the experience as about the diaper itself. Tykables was the first adult baby diaper on the market to feature the fun, well-designed packaging that you see – most diapers only come in plain white bags. The Tykables Overnight diaper also offers a smaller measurement window. While other diapers may fit a wider variety of body types, it leaves a lot of excess plastic and may not lead to a good fit; Tykables believes in having a smaller measurement span to ensure that the diaper will fit well for the body size that it’s designed for. (How many people can actually find “One Size Fits All” clothing that actually works great with their body type? That’s the Tykables approach) With a practical use capacity of 4,000ml (135 ounces), these diapers offer a longer-term wearing experience that many diaper wearers are looking for.

Continuing to want to do better and better for people who are into ABDL, the company has plans on the horizon for all sorts of new products. Expect a new line of adult-sized clothing (including polo onesies!) as well as the return of their daytime Tykables design and more. The company believes there is room to improve current ABDL offerings for high-quality and durable items that will enhance the ABDL experience. The company wants to make things that people can afford – and that people will smile about buying.

Despite the current mainstream new’s take on the store, I found out that the support from the community has been more-than-great. Council members regularly stop into the store for a pleasant chat, and the owner says he’s been surprised by how many community members seem more curious about the store (and what it represents) than upset.

For those unfamiliar with the kinky aspects of diaper wearing, most of the wearers fall into two categories: diaper lovers or adult babies. While diaper lovers enjoy wearing diapers purely for the sensations (and may not be interested in roleplaying), adult babies enjoy the roleplaying aspect that goes alongside the diaper wearing. Entire other articles focus on the reasoning behind adult baby play, but needless to say, it’s entirely separate from anything to do with biological children. People who wear diapers may enjoy actually using the diaper for its intended purpose – or some people just enjoy wearing the diaper without any intention of using it. It’s a wide, varied community.

Tykables Illinois IL ABDL Diaper Store

I’m just glad to see that non-mainstream kinks are making their way into stores and conversations. Tykables has been surprised by all of the press they’ve received – and even impressed by how positive some of it has been. While a couple of news outlets have chosen to focus on the complaints of a few community members (despite the acceptance from the community as a whole), other news outlets have taken an informative and curious approach towards what the company offers – and what their customers are into.

If you’re interested in Tykables for yourself, the company ships out orders from their online store as well. You can easily pick up a two-diaper sample pack to give things a try.
