Review: Avant D3

Peepshow Toys kindly sent me the Avant D3 Dildo  made by Blush Novelties to review and holy hell was the reviewing part fun! But let’s start with the basics shall we? The Avant D3 is hand sculpted out of platinum grade silicone (Yay for body safety!) and is seven and a half inches long with six inches of that being insertable. It is one and one half inches in width. I wouldn’t call it a small toy, but by no means does it seem to be a giant and overwhelming dildo, at least not from my point of view.


The brightly colored stripes are beautiful and caught my eye immediately. That alone made me want to hold it in my hands and see how pretty it was. By far, I’m going to say that this is the prettiest dildo that I own. It is also made of a nice, plush silicone and has a relatively firm texture, although there is a bit of squish to it. It reminds me of a firm stress ball. My first impressions of the toy beyond the gorgeous color and wonderful texture of the silicone led me to the ridged texture of the toy itself. I couldn’t wait to use it and see if they felt as good as they looked.


The head of the toy is very pronounced and that is one of the things I love about it, however that head may look intimidating because of its size and shape. To me it looked like fun and I can feel the very generous pop and then pull slightly against my skin as I slide it in and back out of my body. It isn’t painful at all and I found the sensation to be very pleasurable. And those ridges? Yeah…they do good and happy things to my insides like glide across my g-spot in a perfect rhythm and leave me wanting more and more and more, which I eventually get in the form of an explosive orgasm or two. In my opinion the girthy head paired with the ridges along the top of the toy make it perfect for g-spotting which is exactly what it is designed for. The length of it is almost, but not quite, too much and for me that it absolutely perfect.


When it first arrived and I was examining it at my desk I was curious and immediately stuck it to the top of the desk. And it stuck. Since then, it has been stuck to a window, a plastic box, the side of a bathtub, and a wall, and it has stuck where it was placed on all of them. So the suction cup definitely functions as intended, although I’m not a fan of using it. I simply don’t find it comfortable to use a dildo that is suction cupped to anything. But I know if I want to try it again, this will be my go to toy.


I’ve spent most of this review gushing over this toy and have tried to find anything negative about the Avant D3 Dildo and in all honesty I cannot think of a legitimate complaint. It attracts cat hair like a lint roller, but it is silicone and all of my silicone dildos do the same thing. The closest thing that I have to a complaint is simply wishing that the texture was even more ridged, but that’s just because I love textured dildos, especially when the texture hits my g-spot, which, again, this toy does wonderfully. Also, don’t forget that if you’re using lubricant with it that you want to choose something that is water or oil based.

So there’s my take on the Avant D3 Dildo. I can’t get enough of it. The colors, the pronounced head, the texture and feel of it. Everything about it makes me happy. If you’re interested in picking up your own Avant D3 Dildo check out Peepshow Toys where you can purchase it for $43.00.

#SOSS – 7 – Sexy Sunday Fun

May More of If Sex Matters provides the scene of an idyllic afternoon by the water that easily makes me wish that I could enjoy something of the same ilk. But I’m not brave enough to strip down, anywhere but safely within the walls of my home. So I’ll live vicariously through May.

Backwoods Bedroom provides a sassy and thorough review of the Doxy Number 3 and, personally, I loved the car comparisons. And the crack about having kids, cause while I don’t have kids, I do have nosy neighbors and sometimes that can be just as bad. This is a fantastic review and makes me wish I could afford my own Doxy. But a girl can dream. 🙂

Little Switch Bitch gets her review on with the We-Vibe Gala, a dual motor clitoral stimulator. She highlights how the app that We-Vibe uses to pair their toys over Bluetooth has really been upgraded into something usable and provides excellent pictures as well some excellent commentary on her thoughts on the Gala. An A+ review.

John Brownstone and Kayla Lords get a joint mention this week for their perspective coverage of the February Photofest. I love how they are going about this and giving the rest of us a peek inside their heads and photos to showcase things they love about each other. My favorite post from both of them this week was about boots and I have to agree that there is just something special about a good pair of boots.

Gypsy Traveler by the lovely Cara Thereon set me aflame with a desire to do my own time traveling, to see what I could find. Alas, if only it were possible. Very mesmerizing read.



Review: Satisfyer Pro G-Spot Rabbit

Initially I expected the Satisfyer G-Spot Rabbit to be just as underwhelming as Satisfyer’s seemingly very generic packaging is. I’ve never had a good experience with a rabbit vibrator to date so I figure this one wouldn’t be any different. And it does have some faults, don’t get me wrong, but the combination of sensations with this toy is simply amazing.

The packaging seems very bland.

The plain white silicone is very plush feeling to me and it didn’t take much lube at all as it was very smooth to the touch. It is also kind of a novelty to have a white toy when the majority of them seem to be pink or purple or other seemingly feminine colors. It has an unsurprising pale pink accent around the clitoral arm of the toy and the power button is pink with two smaller white buttons above it, similar to the buttons on other Satisfyer toys.

Finicky buttons

However, those buttons are a major sticking point for me on this particular toy. They are placed in such a way that I practically had to be sitting up to reach and use them (some of this may have been related to my bigger belly) and the controls themselves don’t seem to be very intuitive. One button (the single wave) turns on the vibrating part of the toy and controls the vibrations as well. The bottom button, with four waves, turns on the pressure wave stimulator (the rabbit part) and controls that as well. It was incredibly confusing for me as I expected that the buttons would both be for up and down functions as well and I was consulting the manual more than once, even double and triple checking as I wrote this review. Maybe in writing this seems simple to you, but when I couldn’t see the buttons and I was pressing blindly to find the right ones it got a little annoying. Note: after multiple uses the buttons did become easier to get the hang of so perhaps this was just a matter of a learning curve.

So pretty and silky smooth

On the other hand, once I did some experimenting with placement and shifting the toy this way and that until I got it just so then found the right combination of vibrations and pulsations caused by the pressure waves I was on my way to orgasm land. I couldn’t thrust the toy but had to thrust my hips against it instead which worked out just fine and allowed me to keep contact with my clit while stimulating my g-spot with some surprisingly rumbly vibrations (nothing buzzy here y’all.) And boom! My orgasm hit me like a freight train and just kept going and going. It literally did not stop until I moved the toy away from my body because I was so sensitive. If I had kept going I know I’d have squirted all over the bed so I’m going to call that a definite win in my book. Hopefully this is the experience all my readers have, but I understand that rabbits of any kind are not one size fits all. This particular one, though, offers eleven different intensities for the pressure waves and ten different vibration programs so it has a wide range of possibilities.

As with previous Satisfyer toys this one is waterproof, should be used with water based lubricant, and is rechargeable via a magnetic connection to a USB port. It can take up to eight hours to fully charge for the first time, although mine only took about two hours before the light quit blinking indicating the full charge. All in all, this has been a remarkably surprising toy that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed using, despite the buttons, and can see myself using frequently in the future. If you’d like to purchase one they can be found at Peepshow Toys for $59.95 or you can check your favorite body safe sex toy retailer.

Review: The Dodil

The thermos container that the Dodil comes packaged in.

When I first heard about the Dodil I was curious, but also felt like it might be a little on the gimmicky side. That said, I still wanted to try it because who wouldn’t want to be able to have a custom dildo. I love that it comes packaged in a thermos container that is actually a useful part of the design and a good place to store the Dodil when not in use. I do wish the thermos or its lid was a bit taller though so it could be screwed shut for better storage. Of course, depending on the shape the toy is molded into this is a non-issue.

When I initially boiled my water and poured it into thermos with the Dodil and then waited twenty minutes instead of the thirty the directions called for because I was getting impatient, I quickly discovered on my first try shaping the Dodil that it can be more difficult than you might expect. I know my first shape wasn’t pretty, nor was it effective as a G-spot toy like I was hoping it would be. But, the beauty of the Dodil is that I was able to place it back in the thermos, refill it with water, and there I had it, a nice straight toy that I could shape and design to my heart’s content until I found what was just right for me.

Before molding

So I started designing and shaping and molding and even enlisted my partner’s help to see what they could come up with as well. Between us we came up with various textured or curved designs that when tried ended up being varying amounts of successful in the way that they helped me reach an orgasm or not. I lost count of how many configurations I tried and I’m sure that I will try many more of them in my never-ending quest for more orgasms, please!

Obviously the Dodil requires you to have a bit of patience, a trait that I am lacking, in order to let it get soft enough to mold, then cool enough to handle and for me that was a little frustrating simply because, as I said, I am not a patient woman. But seeing as this is simply the mode of action for the toy I guess I’d better learn some patience and better sculpting skills while I’m at it. My initial reaction to the included bit of plastic string to tie the Dodil into shapes was to assume that it was more than a bit fiddly and immediately discount it. But once I had some practice shaping and molding the Dodil, I found that having a way to hold it in place that didn’t involve me holding it to keep a shape or texture from coming undone was quite nice. One thing that I do wish, is that the Dodil had a bit more mass to it, not length or girth specifically just more material to work with in general, although I’m learning to work with what I’ve got!

Above: Three different shapes I tried out. Can you tell that I love curvy dildos?

I still stand by my statement that the Dodil is a bit of a gimmick where toys are concerned, but I find that it is a rather novel one. I may not use the toy frequently because it can be a more than little fussy, what with the boiling water and everything, but I feel like it has its place in my sex toy arsenal, as a tester of shapes if nothing else. We’ll see how that evolves over time. If we find something that we particularly like we can see about finding a more permanent solution. But that ability to test out various shapes and textures seems like it could be useful in the long term.

If you’re interested you can purchase the full Dodil kit at Luvoqa for $111.00 or you can check out your favorite body safe sex toy retailer.

Review: Aria Hue G G-spot Vibrator


The Aria Hue G is a fantastic toy at a fantastic price. Made by Blush Novelties this vibrator is waterproof, features 5 different vibration patterns, five different speeds, and is made of phthalate free silicone. And it is under $30! It isn’t rechargeable, but I wouldn’t expect it to be either at that price point. But the battery life off of two triple A batteries is pretty good so that honestly didn’t bother me much.

This particular toy comes in several colors including Cerise Pink, Plum Purple, Tangerine Orange & Lime Green (I opted for the green and it is super vibrant; I love it!) and I love that it comes in colors other than just pink or purple. Brightly colored, multi hued toys are one of my favorite things and the Aria line of toys by Blush Novelties nails it. To get into some specifics the toy itself is 6.29 inches long with 5 inches of that being insertable. It’s 1.39 inches around make this an easy to use toy especially if you like smaller toys or are perhaps intimidated by larger sex toys.


Also the Aria Hue G is QUIET. Like I can hold it in my hand on the highest setting and it isn’t making any detectable noise that I can hear kind of quiet. Great for anyone who needs or wants a little privacy when it comes to their toys. This is a big deal for me since I live in an apartment and some toys are just too loud to use when the neighbors are home.

Now in my case I normally like much stronger vibrations than a battery operated toy could typically provide, but in this case the toy just seemed to hit a sweet spot. It was a tease to my clit getting me oh so close to an orgasm, yet not quite there, but inserting it into my vagina and fucking myself with it was a whole different ball game. I could feel the vibrations in all those delicious nerve ends and the bulbous head hit my g-spot just right. Orgasm city you guys, seriously. It was also great to position it it against my g-spot and let it rumble away until I came again. This toy packs more of a punch than I expected it to, both because of its low price and being battery operated. Just goes to show that I shouldn’t prematurely judge a sex toy based on looks alone. One thing I didn’t like about the toy is just how flexible it is. It made using it a challenge at first until I was able to adapt to how it moved inside of me as I thrusted, especially if I was moving quickly. But I can see how some people might find this an advantage as they can get a little more leverage to press against their g-spot.


All in all this toy is worth the investment if you’re just dipping your toes into the sex toy pond. I also think it would be good for someone who has never used a sex toy before because it is rather unassuming and while the shape and size certainly give it away for what it is, it is easy enough to store out of sight because it isn’t a large toy. If you’d like to purchase the Aria Hue G G-spot Vibrator, check it out on for $27.99 or look for it at your favorite body safe sex toy retailer.

Review: Tantus Cush O2


I won my Tantus Cush O2 in a contest and am so lucky to have gotten it. It is part of Tantus’ Dual Density line that is made with a harder core and a softer outside, still using their 100% platinum grade silicone formulation. This Dual Density formula gives it a nice softness to it that makes for an excellent experience. That softness also left me squeezing the tip of it like a stress ball and giggling while I did it. The dildo itself is 7 inches long and 1.75 inches in diameter. It is also phthalate free, hypoallergenic, and easy to clean with several different options being available including boiling, bleaching, or tossing it in the dishwasher.

Out of the box

I’m usually very picky about dildos because they don’t always give me an orgasm like I’m hoping for, but this particular one has become a go to for my masturbation sessions when I’m not testing other toys. The silicone has a matte finish and some drag to it, but that is fixed with a dollop of water based lube and I’m good to go. Despite the Cush’s seemingly impressive size the tapered head allows for easy insertion and the two ridges on the shaft feel really, really good. They hit my the front wall of my vagina and my g-spot one after the other and just rock my world like no other dildo has been able to do. I would suggest this toy for anyone who likes a lot of g-spot stimulation and enjoys the fullness of a larger dildo that will fill you right up. For me it feels especially good when paired with a small clitoral vibrator.

Love those ridges!

The Cush O2 is also harness compatible so it has excellent potential for using it with a partner and the base is large enough that if you’re not using it with a harness it is easy to hold onto and thrust at the same time which again makes it really nice for partnered use. Also, because the surface is relatively firm this dildo doesn’t seem to need a lot of lube for me and if the base gets lube on it, it doesn’t slip from mine or my partner’s grasp at all. It is not suction cup or vibrator compatible, but neither of those were a problem for me.

All in all, I can’t find anything truly negative about this dildo, unless it is that it picks up dust, lint, cat hair, etc very, very easily, but that is a problem with a lot of silicone toys so I don’t seriously count that as a bad thing necessarily. It just needs a quick wash before using and then you’re all set. You can purchase the Cush O2 directly from Tantus for $84.06 or from your favorite body safe sex toy retailer.


Review: Fun Factory Fun Cups


The Fun Cup is a new menstrual cup made by Fun Factory and it is a completely different design from any of the other menstrual cups I’ve seen on the market. It is also my first go round with a menstrual cup so this is a learning experience for me as well as you, my readers. If you’re squeamish about periods, you might want to skip this review. For the rest of you, read on to learn more about the Fun Factory Fun Cup.

The Fun Factory Fun Cup is made from 100% medical grade silicone which is body safe, non-porous, and hypoallergenic. It comes in two different sizes to accommodate a wide range of body shapes and sizes. The anti-microbial Tyvek storage bag is also a great touch and it comes in a simple solid color instead of trying to be overly feminine which is something that I quite appreciate. It is also an eco-friendly choice when compared to pads or tampons, saves you money in the long term, and lasts for several years before needing to be replaced.

Tyvek Storage Bag

My first period with the Fun Cup was an experience for sure. I read and re-read the directions and then started trying to insert it. Thank goodness for a bit of water based lubricant and a lot of patience. Once I finally got the cup inserted into my vagina then I had to make sure it was sealed properly against my cervix to avoid any leaking. I had that part correct. So I went about my merry way and completely forgot about having the cup in because it was so comfortable I didn’t even notice it was there. Several hours later I broke the seal by sliding a finger up against the edge of the cup and felt it kind of ‘pop’ loose, then removed and emptied the cup before giving it a quick wash and going on to reinsert it. Again, because the process was unfamiliar to me it took a few tries and this turned out to be one of the times it didn’t seal right which I realized a couple hours later; happily no cute panties were ruined during this process. So I removed the Fun Cup and started over again. Finally I got it just so and it did seal. This process was repeated several times throughout my period sometimes to varying degrees of trial and error. For the record, I was using the smaller size Fun Cup that came in the Fun Cup Explore Kit. I initially tried the larger one and it just didn’t seem to fit quite right for my body.


The Fun Cup is definitely a product with a learning curve, but not one that is so steep that it becomes frustrating. I think the better you know your body, the easier this will be for you to use. And, as suggested, a bit of water based lubricant definitely made insertion much easier, even after my period had gotten a little heavier. I will say that whenever I went out I wore a pad just in case, given that it was my first time using a menstrual cup and I was a little paranoid about making sure it was in properly and what would happen if it wasn’t. I didn’t have any problems with it while I was out and about and because you can wear Fun Cups for such long periods of time I didn’t have to worry about emptying it in a public restroom either. I think that is something that will wait until I become much better at proper insertion of the cup itself and don’t struggle with it quite so much.

I’m actually kind of looking forward to my next period (how weird is that? Most people I know hate their periods,) so I can try the Fun Cups again and work on improving how I use them and being more confident in wearing them. Overall, these are an excellent product and I would, and have, recommended them to friends to try as an alternative to pads or tampons. If you’re interested in getting a set for yourself check out where they retail for $39.99. Thanks to Fun Factory for providing the Fun Cups in exchange for an honest and impartial review.
