Good Vibrations Buzz: A Little Bit of Everything

Our reviewers were super busy this week, trying out lots of different toys to share their favorites with you!

If you think all condoms are the same, you haven’t taken the Try Me 12-pack Condom Gift Set for a spin.

My husband loves the way they feel, I love the way they feel, and combined with our Liberator Wedge, they make an awesome accessory. And no, I’m not just going on and on about them because I want to portray them as great. I mean it. These are great. Five stars. Terrific. Better than Night Lights, my husband’s favourite. Jonathan even told me that these were so good, that even after they got five stars, that I needed to take one star off every other condom we’ve tried. Yup. That good.

If you like the way vibrators feel, the Starlet Toyfriend Silicone Waterproof Vibrator might be your new favorite toy.


This shape works really well for me. The first few times I played with this vibe I didn’t even turn the motor on. That’s because I really enjoy hitting my G-spot with that oval head. The silicone has some give and bends slightly at the curve, but the shaft is hard, and the head is firm enough to put some decent pressure on my G-spot. When I did finally use it as a vibrator, I had the opposite problem. It felt so good on my clitoris that I didn’t want to take it away long enough to insert it. Luckily for me, there’s no limit to the number of times you can use a sex toy before writing a review for it, as it took me a few more goes before I finally used it internally with the motor on. I’m thrilled to report that it performed beautifully for that purpose as well.

You’ll want something to keep things nice and slippery. The Sliquid Sea Natural Lubricant is safe to use with all toys, and lasts a long, long time.

When I use this stuff solo, I don’t need a lot. It is thick-ish¦somewhere between a gel and a liquid. It isn’t runny or messy and it stays put when I use it with toys. It mixes well with my own natural lubrication¦and feels completely natural¦after a long play session, solo or with the boyfriend, I don’t even feel the need to go clean up. It just feels like me. It cleans off easily with a damp towel, or even a dry towel. But if you are lazy¦and I sometimes am¦it will eventually just be absorbed into your skin. No gross residue. Nothing. I actually have been playing with some on my arm while writing this review. I rubbed it in¦and other than feeling nice and moisturized, my skin is just as it was before I applied the lube. Awesome.

In my opinion, this stuff isn’t quite thick enough for anal. It will last quite a while and I could see myself using this to insert a glass or stainless plug, but I won’t be using this for anal sex. I like to use nice thick lube for any heavy duty anal play, and this just isn’t quite viscous enough for that. Definitely not a strike against, though¦I already have a go to anal lubricant¦and now I have a new go to lube that is safe for my body and all of my toys, no matter the material.

Want to try anal play? Or maybe you’ve got some experience under your belt and you like to keep your hands free for other fun. The Your Highness Vibrating Dildo will bring a smile to your face.


I have to say I have never been one for anal or anal toys until my hubby and I started experimenting with new things. The royalty called Your Highness may be a homerun in our house. I have tried a few different anal toys and this is by far the absolute best one ever. The Silicone is super smooth, soft and prefect, no I mean it prefect. I can only say that the size is good for most people. Not beginners as much but great for someone who does not have a lot of experience to advanced toy users.


I prefer to wait until this is inserted to turn on the bullet which is activated by a single push button on its bottom. There is only one vibration setting on the bullet which is fairly strong for a bullet. The sound level is pretty comparable to other bullet vibrators. When inserted, the bullet provides a vibration up the body of the dildo. The vibrations aren’t super strong, but they can definitely be felt. I feel like this was the right amount of vibration for anal use for me. If you want to thrust with this toy during masturbation, you’ll be able to feel the popping sensation as you move from bulb to bulb or you can leave it stationary like a plug. I also tried this as a vaginal dildo but found it to be a bit underwhelming. I like a bit of a more girthy toy for that and stronger vibrations than this has to offer.

Although it isn’t safe for latex condoms, the Honey Girl Organics Natural Personal Lubricant has found a lot of fans.

When I first opened this jar I realized that the lube was quite different that what I had expected. Not only was it a cream rather than liquid, it didn’t feel greasy or heavy. Rather, the buttermilk yellow cream is the consistency of body butter, or whipped butter like they serve at restaurants. And it is so soft! It feels more soothing than lotion and is incredible not only as a lubricant, but even as a soothing moisturizer for chafed areas or dry spots. When I rub it on my head, it feels silky smooth, even more so than lotion, and rubs in pretty quickly leaving no residue or greasy skin. When I use down there, it adds to and enhances my own wetness making my feel slick and comfortable, but not like I am drowning.

If you want to find these and plenty other fun ways to put a smile on your (and your sweetie’s) face, stop on by!
