Safety First – This pdf will help with any anal sex questions you may haveMy first anal toy review! I received this toy from an boyfriend a few years ago. It has been placed in my usual round of toys. This was a great present for me. I am picky when it comes to things that I place in or on my body. This plug is made from stainless steel and Swarovski crystal. This is makes it amazingly easy to clean and sanitize. It will never degrade, corrode and is non porous. This also made the toy heavy. It made anal play feel “pretty” All too often a consumer is faced with ugly anal toys. They are black, grey, shaped like road cones. Beads can come in all colors, but usually are made from yucky plastic. I prefer plugs because I like the snug fit, and the fact I can wear them out in public. I have the large, which is not as large as some plugs. The details are here
• Overall Length: 3in (7.62cm)
• Insertable Length: 2.5in (6.35cm)
• Circumference (at widest point): 4in (10.16cm)
• Diameter (at widest point): 1.27in (3.22cm)
• Weight: 0.4 lb (6.4 oz) Your anal cavity is a lot like your mouth, where the actual size of something is not always the size it feels like. Even with lube, the first few times using this toy was an exercise in patience. It also warms to your body temperature. If you like sensation play, you can cool or warm the plug before play. As mentioned before the plug feel heavy. At 6.4 oz it is a significant weight. While bending over, gravity takes care of the weight. But walking and moving about can become uncomfortable. I would also not recommend this plug for long periods of time (4 hours plus) because the weight and delicate anal tissue. It was short enough to where it felt like a plug, not anything else. The first anal ring is where most of the nerves are, and fit snuggly there. This means that I am constantly stimulated, This was true of both the girth and weight. Since the anal cavity will grip/clamp down , it can be difficult to remove the toy if you are not relaxed. I recommend this toy with a partner. That way they can enjoy the “pretty” but also because the plug is short enough it does take some acrobatics to get in and out by one self. There is also the extra plus of double penetration. The steel massages the penis through the perineum. While I as a cis gendered female used it, it could also be used by men. While not a P-spot massager, it does again fit snuggly in the first anal ring. The could work for men who are being introduced to anal, are ready for P-spot stimulation. The colors range in blue, green, purple, red The price is a bit high but worth the quality. 1) JT Stockroom has them for 79.00. 2) Extreme Restraints has a knock off for $10 cheaper. $69.00 3) Edens Fantasy has a non Jewel one Pure plug medium – Anal sex toys – Butt plugs
Does this need to be reviewed by a Fan?
I have been crazy excited to write this review ever since its inception. I am always looking for ways to make my blog “stand out”. I do this by approach (educational) and humor. However I have also decided to review different toys and sexual accoutrements. I am also hoping to have a extra special male Guest Blogger!
In Sex Toy reviews, there is a large emphasis on female toys. This is due to the fact majority of toys are for women. This becomes a quagmire and a Ouroboros of sex toy vs sex toy review. So here I am- Putting that snake on a diet!
My goal is to have at least 25% male (both sex and gender representation) sex toy representation by the end of the year. This lack of diversity has bothered me since I began doing reviews. This is hurtful to sexuality and sex education. because only one side gets to be heard/read/blogged about. While I like the strength of the female sexual voice, non cis gender and male voices are not represented.
The Tenga Deep Throat Cup is a masturbation sleeves similar to its flashier cousin Frankie the FleshLight. In appearance it looks like the dreaded Red Solo Cup. If you are not a country music fan, or just out of college it should not bother you. The use of the toy was reported to me as “easy”. It also appeared to be “plug and play”. One would unscrew it, and thrust into it as needed. There is a hole on the top for your finger to control the suction. Placing your finger on the small hole created a vacuum tightness, where as removing the finger allowed air to escape. This was great for mimicking the contraction of vaginal muscles.
The overall sensation was reported as a 4/5. The lubrication was a water based lube with little smell and no stickiness. It was a tad over lubricated for the a first time, but after play the ratio evened out. There is also a ring of pressure near the top. This is special of the “Deep Throat” cup. This ring is meant to feel like the throat. As reported it did not feel like a throat, but felt great. I would imagine it felt as “realistic” as a dildo feels to a vagina. This toy is large, and can fit up to an 11inch penis. The Cup also was easy to use in partner play. It stayed on the penis, but was also easy to remove, It was easy to use as a woman, and aided in foreplay. This is a great toy for people who want to teach their partner how to jack them off. One of the concerns I had was the lube. As a note it is propylene glycol based, and some are allergic to it.
Since it is a masturbation sleeve the comparison to the FleshLight is unavoidable. A Pro over the Fleshlight is cost. Ranging from $10-15 the Tenga Deep Throat Cup is much more affordable than the $60-70 Fleshlight. It is also smaller and a bit less kitschy. A con is that it does not last as long. The Tenga has about 10-15 uses to it. The Fleshlight has infinite uses. It is not as ribbed as the Fleshlight. This being a pro/con is up to personal choice.
I liked the idea of being a sexy reporter with my partner, and hope to do it again!
– Raven Kaldera, “The Polyamory Contract”
So I spent the bulk of this weekend in Ottawa, and one of the things I did there was teach a polyamory / non-monogamy workshop at Venus Envy. It was cool! Great turnout (22, woo-hoo!), thoughtful people, and a wide range of experiences – from total non-monog newbie to lifetime poly folk. Very interesting.
Normally when I teach, I really like to make things really interactive. But I’ve noticed that sometimes that’s not satisfying to people. For a lot of folks, when they show up to a workshop, they really want to come out of it with concrete, practical tools that will help them incorporate a new philosophy or practice into their lives. Now, telling people how to live their lives is kinda obnoxious, in my humble opinion, so I’m usually loath to approach a topic as though I have the monopoly on know-how. Especially when…
