Review: Sex & Mischief Black Elastabind Kit

A rectangular box with a picture of a woman in bondage on it.A review for a bondage kit by Sportsheets, sent to me by the lovely sextoys.co.uk

Rating: ★★★☆☆ 3/5

“I was sent the Sex & Mischief Black Elastabind Kit back in November for the round of testing over at sextoys.co.uk. When I was told I was going to receive this item I was pleased because I hadn’t reviewed many BDSM toys yet and wanted to see what the Sex & Mischief range was like. They sent the kit straight away but due to some personal issues (and the lack of a working camera) we didn’t get around to testing it for a while. Now that those issues are resolved, I am pleased to bring you my review!

“This kit is incredibly simple to use.”

Review: Past Pleasures anthology

Novel with a woman in Victorian-style clothing holding a mask to her face on the cover.This review was sponsored by the kind people at Xcite Books, who sent me a copy to test.

Rating: ★★★☆☆ 3/5

“I was pleased when this anthology arrived, because both Daddy and I are into Victorian settings and values. I really liked the cover because it looks Victorian to me, and I was eager to read it. Some of the stories are not as good as others though.

“The stories are set in all sorts of time periods; from Victorian times to after World War 2, Shakespearian times to the American Civil War.”

Review: Clone-A-Willy Vibrator Kit

The Clone-A-Willy Vibrator Kit, with the glow-in-the-dark version beside it.My review for the Clone-A-Willy Vibrator Kit, including some pictures of the finished product. I kind of messed up a few times in the making of this toy so try not to take my rating to heart. I’ve explained it below.

Rating: ★★★☆☆ 3/5

“I bought this Clone-A-Willy Vibrator Kit when I saw a thread on the sextoys.co.uk forums about them. I decided that I really wanted to have a copy of my Daddy’s penis and badgered him until he agreed to let me do one. Because I prefer to have my cake and eat it too, I chose the vibrator kit instead of the normal one and would happily have had the Glow in the Dark version if it had been in stock at the time. As it was, I was too impatient so I got the one there was and bounced around happily as I waited to use it.

Almost an entire year later, we finally have accomplished it.

“The Clone-A-Willy Vibrator Kit comes in a tube exactly the same as in the initial picture.”

Review: ÜberKinky Bondage Tape

Two rolls of tape side by side, one red and one black.I was sent this tape by the lovely people at ÜberKinky when I asked them if I could have the honour of testing something from their range. It’s taken me quite a while to do this review, due to a wedding and various forms of sickness but here it finally is!

Rating: ★★★☆☆ 3/5

“To be completely honest, Daddy and I have only ever used bondage tape a few times in the past and generally were not impressed with what we got. We always found it a bit awkward and annoying to bother with and thus have decided to do bondage in other ways instead. When I was offered this tape, I thought that perhaps it was time to give it another go since the last time was about two years ago and from a different manufacturer. I hoped that we would like this tape more, now that we were more experienced.

“I was pretty pleased with the way this tape arrived to me. The parcel I received was very discreet and well-packed, with a lot of bubble wrap to protect the things inside.”

Review: Give Lube: Aqua Gel

Water-based LubeThis review is sponsored by Give Lube, who kindly sent me a tester set to try which also included their new Silicone+ lube. Also, many thanks to the wonderful Ness, who stepped in to help educate me when researching the ingredients for this was hurting my head!

PRESENTATION

Aah, here we go again. I’m still loving the tiny bottle and design choice for this company. I genuinely think they’re elegant and adorable, which are two of the things I like most in the whole world when it comes to sex toys. Essentially the bottle size and design are the same, but instead of the shiny silver there is a really pretty blue to look at! It’s the kind of blue which makes me think of the ocean, which is perfect since this is a water-based lube.

“After seeing these beautiful designs and colour choices I really want to know what Give Lube will come up with next.”

Story 2: Late One Night at the Tourist Court by Michael Bracken (pages 12-17)

Rating: ★★★☆☆ 3/5

“After reading Cherry Ripe on the train, I read this next story straight away because it was very short and I was pretty bored. If I’m honest, it wasn’t impressive but there were some things I liked about it.

I’m afraid to say that this story unimpressed me from the get-go with a first sentence that was almost an entire paragraph long. Why is that unimpressive, you ask? Because it ran on too long and it was difficult for me to keep track of all the details! It would have worked much better as two separate sentences and then the grammar would not have been nearly quite as awful. This sort of thing really gets to me because I dislike having to reread something over and over to figure out what it is trying to tell me. You may have a different experience and that is fine but for me, this was agitating.

“Said annoying opening paragraph just explains that the two main characters are at a cabin in the mountains after committing a crime.”

Review: Beginners Basic Vibrating Mega Ring

A orange-tinged jelly cock ring with vibrator on the top.This review has been written for an item I received back in 2010 when I lived with my Daddy. We still have the cock ring now and upon seeing it I decided to write a review.

Rating: ★★★☆☆ 3/5

“We got this toy when I noticed I had enough Oh! Points to warrant a purchase. Being curious about cock rings and vibrating ones in particular, I ordered this from Lovehoney without even mentioning it to Daddy. I wanted to surprise him with it when he came back from visiting his family and waited for it eagerly to arrive in the post. When it did, I was over the moon and hid it in a drawer until he arrived.

One of the reasons I was so excited to try it is that I find it difficult to orgasm without a vibrator and thought this would solve all my worries about being able to climax during sex. This has never particularly been a strain on our relationship but it did make me feel guilty for quite a long time so I was willing to try anything once. Sadly, he wasn’t nearly as excited with the idea but agreed to try it out anyway.

“When this toy arrived, it came in a small plastic sealed bag just like on the Lovehoney website.”

Review: Ann Summers Juicy Lube Range

Ann SummersToday I went into the Ann Summers shop in Manchester to look around because I’d seen some really beautiful lingerie online and wanted to see it in person. Unfortunately it wasn’t as nice as I had hoped, which led to me looking around more. Eventually I stumbled across the lube section, where there were some tester products on display. Not one to let an opportunity pass, I decided to taste all of them so I could write a blog post today.

The range I ended up tasting was Ann Summers’ own Juicy Lube set. So here are my thoughts on taste and texture.

“The mini tubes are adorable; they have a small size that looks great.”
