Tantus Slow Drive

Tantus Slow Drive

The Tantus Slow Drive comes in lime green. Glorious, slightly shimmery, candy-bright lime green. I get eye-orgasms gazing at these new and brilliant limited edition colors, which also include pearly teal and silvery slate. I want to eat this delicious-looking masterpiece of a dildo.1

Skinny and simple, the Slow Drive features a dramatic curve at the tip, with an insertable length of 5″ (also available in a Long version, at 7.25″ insertable). Slow Drive’s smooth, glossy silicone surface has a little bit of squish, and while sturdy and firm in density, its modest 1.25″ diameter makes the dildo moderately bendable.

The shiny silicone of the Slow Drive is just soft enough to warm myself up to G-spot play. After I’ve had enough slow stroking, I can angle the curved tip more directly into my G-spot and start thrusting away for more intense stimulation. As the diameter barely changes throughout the length of this dildo, Slow Drive feels incredibly smooth gliding in and out.

Slow Drive possesses magical G-spot powers: what this toy may not have in size and girth is made up for with a magnificent curve. The rounded shape of the tip and the firmness of the silicone results in a combination that feels like a large, gently curved finger; the feeling is not too intense, but prominent enough to firmly categorize this dildo as a wonderful G-spot toy.

My only criticism is that the small and rather thin base is somewhat difficult to grasp when thrusting. The base is a unique triangular shape, perhaps for ease of use in a harness, but isn’t much to hold on to during solo use.

With an exception of the small and difficult-to-hold base, I love everything about the majestic Tantus Slow Drive and all its shimmery lime green glory. Perfect for warm-up, harnesses, anal and prostate play, or just good old fashioned G-spotting, Slow Drive is a great addition to any dildo collection.

Make sure to get yourself one of these new, limited edition Tantus releases in lime, silver, or teal (get 20% off with code LIMITEDEX, and hurry while they last)! Let’s all show Tantus that we demand more wonderful unique colors like these.

Toyfriend Seti

Toyfriend Seti

Toyfriend Seti

The Toyfriend Seti is a weird shape, and I was intrigued the moment I laid eyes upon its grand satellite dish design and cheerful blue hue.

The possibilities consumed me. Would NASA collect data on my orgasmic contractions? Could I broadcast NPR radio straight to my vagina? Was it time I tried some space explorer roleplay? Beam me up, Scotty.

Initially, I thought this was an insertable toy for focused G-spot stimulation, but Seti turned out to be much larger than I envisioned. Despite my doubts, I tried shoving Seti up my vagina anyway – in the name of sex toy reviewing – but my steamy fantasies of Soviet Union astronomers from the 1960s were disrupted with misery, pain, and frustration. I had to awkwardly battle my vulva to just get the satellite dish inside my body, and every moment of the ordeal was tormenting and unpleasant. The shape of Seti ensures that this is definitely not an internal toy.

What Seti is made for is pinpoint clitoral stimulation. I must admit I didn’t like this vibe the first time I used it, as in general I much prefer a broader surface area on my clit. I have to be in the right mood to find pinpoint vibration pleasureable – this is a personal preference, as my clit is very sensitive. Also, I almost always have to pair it with a good insertable toy.

So I put on some hot outer space porn, grabbed a Tantus O2 dildo, and indulged myself further in pleasurable pseudoscience. Seti features two power settings and three pulse modes. Although the highest power setting is not incredibly strong, it is plenty enough for my body when it comes to pinpoint stimulation.

Using this toy is like an exercise in restraint: As I become more aroused, I naturally want to grind the toy harder on my clit. This, however, knocks the vibe out of place, until the entire satellite dish is snuggling up against my vulva, resulting in very little feeling of vibration. It’s a challenge to hold back from grinding into the toy, which depending on my mood can be either enjoyable or annoying.

Aerie: I feel like I need to make a terrible joke about vaginas being all mysterious like Area 51 but it does not want to happen in my brain
Aerie: this post
Aerie: this post will ruin me
Amy: hahahahaa
Amy: Requires a tinfoil hat to find

Seti’s power is concentrated right through the spike of the satellite dish. The toy can be rotated so the edges or back of the dish caress the clitoris, but the vibration is very noticeably less powerful in these areas. Basically, you want to just boop the spike directly on your clit. Toyfriend could have designed Seti without the dish for the same functionality, but personally I think the cosmic theme is unique and cute. Plus, I like hoping it will help bring a certain sexy time-traveling spaceman to my door someday.

The Toyfriend Seti is a well priced silicone vibe for pinpoint clitoral stimulation, but not versatile at all for other uses. Although I do like this toy, my enjoyment of Seti is very dependent on my mood, and I don’t foresee reaching for this one often. I highly recommend knowing for sure that you really like pinpoint vibrations before you buy.

And From Elsewhere

Stuff not necessarily related to sex, but still excellent:

My good friend Amy of SlothNails has posted this sparkling glitter explosion of a nail polish review. I’ve since become obsessed with “Hello, Sweetie” and I want it on my fingers now.

While wandering Etsy very late at night, I fell into this fantastical Etsy shop and then proceeded to purchase 80 stickers that just say “clitoris”. I am also eagerly awaiting obscene amounts of stickers that say “Wieners w/Cheese”, “For Vaginal Use Only”, and “Corn”, because I need them. For things.

Meanwhile, on the internet: Typical Richard Nixon shenanigans.

OhMiBod Lovelife Discover

OhMiBod Lovelife Discover

I like cute things, such as kittens wrapped up in towels and corgis wearing little hoodies. So it comes as no surprise that I liked the The OhMiBod Lovelife Discover the moment I saw it, with its petite size, cute little heart-shaped face, and silly expression. Although I generally avoid pink, I actually find this toy’s rosy shade appealing combined with its marshmallow white head, and I could almost – almost – forgive the Lovelife line for only coming in one stereotypical color.

Charging the Discover feels like some kind of creepy Frankenstein brain surgery, as you carefully insert the long needle-like plug into the toy’s spherical cranium.  I must admit that I think this is kind of kick-ass, because I am a weird person. The new Lovelife line doesn’t respond to music like the classic OhMiBod products, so don’t expect to plug this one into your iPod. Discover is not waterproof, so take care when cleaning to avoid getting water into its tiny electronic brain.

As cute this toy is, I hated using Discover externally. My clit is super sensitive, and the extremely buzzy vibrations of Discover are pretty numbing. On days I’m feeling extra-sensitive, this vibe is actually too uncomfortable for me to use on my clit. Discover has to take the trophy for some of the most unpleasant surface-buzziness that I’ve come across, and although I found that the pulse settings slightly help alleviate the numbing sensations, I haven’t been able to orgasm using this toy externally. Also, for those who like power, this vibe’s highest setting isn’t all that strong.

I do really like Discover for thrusting, however. The silicone is very buttery smooth to the touch, and the graduated curve allows for easy insertion. The vibe’s round head is easy for me to use as a handle (but I also have freakishly tiny hands, so it might be more difficult for someone with bear paws). Discover’s shape and smaller size feels very nice for when I’m not craving something enormous in my vagina, and buzzy vibrations don’t numb me on the inside like they do on my clit. Each time I became frustrated with this vibe on my clit, I’d switch to thrusting it internally, and found Discover far more pleasurable to use this way.

If OhMiBod can upgrade the Lovelife Discover to have stronger, deeper, and more rumbly vibrations, and offer at least one more color option besides candy pink, I would be ALL over this toy line. The silicone is silky smooth, the design is cute without being cringeworthy, and the shape is pleasurable. I’ll be very interested in seeing what OhMiBod comes out with next.
