June + July Wrap Up: Empty Bed Blues

This post has been a long time coming, so I appreciate everyone waiting for me! I’ve been dealing with bouts of depression and burn out, so finally getting this post out feels like a big weight off me! Now I’ll get my reviews in after this…

Partnered Life

My partnered life has been kind of non-existent lately. Why’s that you may ask? Well, my boyfriend is out of the country, and that’s had the both of us feeling lonely. While the boyfriend and I make sure to have a phone call everyday, I miss waking up next to him in bed.

The good news is that of time of writing this piece, my boyfriend will be home in just a few days! We’ve got lots planned for our reunion, and I plan on it being smashing.

Health and Wellness

Like my partnered life, my health and wellness have sort of been taking a back seat as I deal with loneliness and with getting used to my new job! However! All hope is not lost, as I’ve started making a few changes for the better. I’ve started hiking the trails near my apartment and I’ve generally increased my water in take to help me sleep better at night.

As of time of writing, my meditation practice and daily writing goals have fallen off. So, my new goal is to not beat myself up over this, but to allow myself to ease back into these practices. Here’s hoping that I can get back into it!

Turn Ons and Toys

Due to my partner’s aforementioned absence, toys have figured more prominently than ever in my solo sex life. More specifically, The Strange Bedfellas Tyv, the Uberrime Bella, and the Spirito have been my bedside companions for the past month and a half. I’m a big fan of the girth that the Tyv rocks, and the Bella is just…bellissima. Absolutely perfect in terms of softness and comfort for when I don’t want a wank that’s overwhelming. Using the Bella is like the dildo equivalent of a gentle, capable masseuse working out all the knots in your anxious, tight shoulders. Except in this case it’s my vagina.

With regards to my fantasy life, I’ve been big into the bimbo/braindrain fetish. Something about being a brainless slut happily slurping cocks has been really appealing. Maybe it’s the inability to feel anxiety? Maybe it’s the freedom of reclaiming sexist tropes? Or maybe I just really want to suck some dick. Its anyone’s guess.

Misc

Visiting home and buying new wine glasses. Trying on new perfumes. Seeing a heron snatch a fish out of the water. Petting dogs at the office. Ordering new enamel pins. Buying discounted dildos. Drinking grapefruit San Pellegrino mixed with white wine. Writing a post again. Saying ‘I love you’. Getting a Moleskine notebook as a souvenir. Texting good friends. Making plans to attend a conference.

Melted! The Magma Silicone Dildo Review

The summer of 2017 was the first time I started really getting into the world of sex toys. I voraciously consumed articles from Epiphora, Dangerous Lilly and Artemisa FemmeCock. As I combed through old posts, the ones that were the most exciting and the most heart wrenching were the posts that featured discontinued products. I look back on those posts featuring lost brands like Ophoria and Fucking Sculptures with a sense of frustration. Such great toys that I will NEVER get to experience unless by the grace of some god out there I snagged one in a sale or in a swap. And so I had, for the longest time, assumed the Tantus Splash would be forever out of my reach as well…until now. A few months ago, Tantus relaunched the Splash in it’s new, re-vamped form as The Magma. Delighted beyond all reason, I asked SheVibe to review it and they agreed! Now all this dildo had to do was live up to the hype.

Just by looking at the Magma, I knew I was in for an intense experience of some kind. Not because of the dimensions necessarily though. At about seven inches long in total with six insertable inches, the Magma is not an ultra long toy, nor is it particularly girthy, clocking in at just 1.5 inches thick. But then, were this toy any bigger, it would easily be the most overwhelming toy in my collection currently. The ad copy for the Magma claims that the Magma is ‘super soft’ which most dildo veterans know to be a bit of an exaggeration when it comes to Tantus. The Magma is flexible and bendy, but I wouldn’t call it squishy or soft really. It doesn’t want to conform to the inner workings of my body in the way that an Uberrime or a LustArts toy does, but it doesn’t fight my contours too much. So while I won’t validate this toy as being ‘super soft’ I will say that it’s not as hard as their regular formula.

So how did the made over Splash fair in my vag? Well, this is the part of the review that I’ve been putting off writing, because well…it requires nuance. I really can’t rattle off an exuberant idiom proclaiming my love for this dildo but I also can’t say that I’ve fallen in love with it. It’s hard to say how I feel about the Magma. At times, it can be wildly and uncomfortably scrape-y on my insides. But at other times, it can be a pretty pleasurable ride. During the days where my cunt is so desensitized that I have to bust out the textured heavy hitters to get any kind of pleasurable sensation out of my leaden vagina, I’ll whip out the Magma. But most days, I found the Magma to be far too firm and far to scrape-y and scratchy in my vagina to really be an asset in masturbation. It was distracting, and sometimes uncomfortable to the point of pain if I wasn’t using very thick lube a la GCL or going very slowly. With a lot of warm up, I found the Magma to be more comfortable, but not really very pleasurable. So really, outside of the initial testing phase, this dildo hasn’t seen a lot of use.

My overwhelming sense of the Magma is of someone who encounters a much vaunted classic movie and then is wildly underwhelmed. Imagine if you went in to watch Titanic and came away feeling feeling mildly uncomfortable and confused as to why everyone was raving over it and you’ll get the scope of my feelings for this toy. Tantus, I’m afraid you’ve struck out again with me.

This toy was provided to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review. Thanks SheVibe!

Uberrime Spiro Review

The Uberrime Spiro is an EXTREMELY charming dildo. I mean, how could I not ask to review it? With those bright colors and enticing G-spotty head, I couldn’t resist. The orange makes the Spiro look like a fuckable mimosa, which is probably my favorite cocktail to drink while lounging in a bubble bath. I just have to be careful with those, or else I end up spending a longer time in the bath than I originally planned. But back to the Spiro, I’m delighted to say that this is as visually delicious as it is vaginally!

The Spiro is a relatively average dimensioned dildo, with 6 and half inches of length and a maximum girth of 1.75 inches. It’s thick, but not overwhelmingly so. Rather, it provides a nice chunk of silicone for your hole to squeeze around. The density is firm, which can make initial insertion uncomfortable. I recommend a healthy amount of lube and a session of gentler warm up before using the Spiro.

The product description says that the Spiro is a G-spotting toy, and with that unusually shaped head, it’s pretty obvious why. As a G-spotter, the Spiro is a fine dildo, worthy of it’s comparison to a mimosa. Feeling that unique, flat yet bulbous head stroke my G-spot is a squirm-inducing affair and I’m quite the fan. But it also has another, more secret purpose: being an A-spotting tool for the more petite among us. Which, if you don’t know, I am one of the more petite among us. I clock in at about 5’2″ depending on which of my doctors you ask. So most toys that are used for A-spot pleasure are usually too long for me. But the Spiro has gotten me interested in this more hidden place of pleasure within my body. I can’t say for certain that I’ve experienced A-spot pleasure, but I’ve definitely felt some interesting sensations deeper in my vagina.

With regards to the rest of the Spiro,  The ridges are noticeable but gentle, not something that will appeal to the texture slutty among us. But it gives my vaginal walls enough sensation that I won’t write the Spiro’s ridges off. I personally like my texture understated when I’m in my more sensitive days, so the Spiro saw more use when I was on or close to menstruation. However, I have to be careful with the length, or else I risk jabbing my cervix on those days. It’s a tradeoff, but it’s one I’m happy to make.

The Spiro is like the perfect mimosa. It’s sweet but with just a little kick and it’ll get you exactly where you need to go. Uberrime, keep being an absolute GEM.

I received this product free of charge in exchange for an honest review. Thanks Uberrime!

Liz’s Summer Reading List

I miss summer reading. I know it’s a weird thing to say, most people hated reading for a grade. But I was always a teacher’s pet and I loved getting the book read. Now, I didn’t necessarily love the assignments that came along with the book, but I did enjoy poring over the volumes themselves. I’m now fully a year out of college and what am I doing with my downtime? I’m assigning myself some summer reading to edify myself. Oh hell yeah.

After a trip to the local Barnes and Noble, I’ve picked up quite the selection of books that I want to conquer this summer. If anyone wants to read along with me or is simply interested in what I’m doing in my downtime besides jerking off and writing, here’s what I’m reading:

Do I Make Myself Clear?

I am always looking for books to sharpen my writing skills. And I believe that I have. I’m paring my down my adverbs and honing my vocabulary to a keen edge so that I can write in a clear and evocative voice.

Girls & Sex

I grabbed this book not really knowing what it would be about, but picked up because it has to do with sex right? Yeah, okay that’s not the best reason to get a book but hey, it’s not a bad reason. After doing a little research, it looks like the author is examining today’s sexual landscape and the generational gap. Huh, this could be really fun to examine!

Dead Girls

I’m a fan of horror and I’m a feminist, so to find something that pings both of those interests is worth picking up. Dead Girls examines the pop culture trope of the murdered girl. The use of the murdered girl as a trope to bolster the stories of men is one that I’m excited to learn more about.

Pleasure Activism

I don’t believe I read enough work by women of color, so Pleasure Activism seems like an excellent place to get started. Pleasure Activism is a book written by a black woman about how we can use the erotic to empower ourselves and use it for social justice purposes. I’ve found the language a bit slippery for myself, but I’m going to keep trying and I’m sure I’ll eventually get through it. Wish me luck!

The Submissive

Listen, this is really just…smut. But listen, I have a very good reason for assigning myself smut! I know that 50 Shades Of Grey is trash, but this seems to be much in the same vein as 50 Shades, and I wonder if it’s better written. So I may end up having to get 50 Shades Of Gray to compare the two. Although, maybe they’re both trash. Anyway, got to get back to my VERY important summer reading!

Middlemarch

The last book on this list is a much vaunted classic, Middlemarch. In spite of hearing about it, I picked it up not really knowing what to expect. This is my densest read and it’s one I’ll need the most support to get through if I want to make it 100% of the way through my summer reading list. If I whine about this book on Twitter, please slap my wrist and tell me to slog on!

Gosh I can’t wait to actually sit down and get my reading done. What do you think of my list? What’s on your own summer reading list? Let me know in the comments!

JeJoue Classic Bullet Review

As readers of my previous posts may know, I’ve been a faithful lover to my Exposed Nocturnal Bullet. Yes, I admitted the toy had some faults, even in the loving post where I reviewed it, I mentioned that I thought the toy had given me a cut on my urethra. But even the threat of a recurrence of this unfortunate event wasn’t enough to put me off. It’s cheap, rechargeable and strong. And I’d still recommend it if your budget firmly excludes vibrators over fifty dollars! But…this month my clit was wooed. Seduced away from the knife sharp vibrations by more rumbly, sweet vibrations that gently massaged my clitoris and all her internal structures. Yes, I admit, I’ve found someone else. The JeJoue Classic Bullet is rumbly and gentle to me and I’ve fallen head over heels.

The JeJoue Classic Bullet is a silicone covered bullet without any bells and whistles to differentiate it from the other bullets. Well, perhaps excepting the cheerful teal color and squishy silicone tip. There are three buttons on the side, and there are 5 speeds which range from a fluttery tap to a more robust buzz. Some reviewers despise the button placement, but I don’t really find it that inconvenient. Still, it does make the bullet a little less ergonomic. The Classic is also waterproof, which I tested in my sink as I washed a few choice dildos. It holds an average amount of charge, and so I was disappointed the two times it died on me and I had to find another toy to finish me off. Admittedly I go for weeks without charging it, so this is kind of my fault. And, as mentioned above, the Classic also has a squishy tip, which some other reviewers have noted! This makes the bullet vibe a little more comfortable if you like to put pressure against your clit.

Now, as for how the Classic fairs against my clitoris…well, it’s like taking my clit to the spa. This is a gentle massage, a purring rumble that makes my internal structures SWOON. In terms of music, the Exposed Nocturnal is a shrieking electric guitar, all sharp and strong, where the Classic is a thrumming, throbbing bass. The quality of vibrations are so different that it actually took a little while for my brain to interpret the vibrations of pleasurable. But I also noticed that my clit needed less of a break between orgasms and felt less raw after the sessions. There’s a fuzzy-wuzzy comfortable feeling to these vibrations and it penetrates deeply, so my clitoris doesn’t get numbed out like it does sometimes with buzzier vibes. My whole clitoral network gets involved, so I can place this just to one side of my vulva and be awash in LOVELY sensation. On the lower levels, the sensation is almost like tapping on my clit rather than strictly vibrations. It’s like a tapping pattern but with no break in stimulation. What I’m saying is that this vibe is like a good vanilla ice cream: not innovative, but a simple thing done excellently. And at a fair price considering the Classic is only $59!

I’m not saying that I don’t still love my Exposed Nocturnal, it was my first love after all. But I am saying that I’m not monogamous with my vibrators. The Classic has been a trooper, reliably tapping and thrumming against my clit until I shudder and cum. Honestly, it’s a toy that exemplifies the perks of being a sex toy reviewer.

This product was provided to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review. Thanks SheVibe!

Zumio X Review

I am laying naked on my bed, with the whirring tip of the Zumio buried in the fleshy folds of my inner labia near my clit. My eyes are sliding over the erotica I’ve picked out haphazardly, the careful and constructed sentences of literary fucking are almost ignored because of the intensity next to my clit. The sensation of the Zumio is intense and glorious; I find my eyes sliding in and out of focus at times and screwing up tight at others. It is powerful and squirm inducing this pleasure. I try to resist, try anything to not give in and cum too quick, but alas, a squeal stutters out of my throat and I feel my cunt flexing and squeezing in the rhythm of orgasm.

My boyfriend walks into the bed room to see me jerking off with what looks like a fabric gel pen pressed against my clit. He asks me “Is it good?”

I look up at him, my face pink.

“Fuck yeah it is.”

The Zumio is never a toy I expected to review. I had heard about it and knew several reviewers approved of it, but somehow I hadn’t really considered that I would ever own one. That is, until my shining star Kitten Boheme asked me if I wanted one. When I saw that Twitter DM I felt like she just nonchalantly asked if I wanted a platinum plated credit card good for infinite orgasms. Suffice to say, I said said yes. We traded details and jokes and hopes that I would like until it arrived.

When I opened it, I admit I knew what I was in for. The Zumio is kind of a weird looking toy. It’s shaped a bit like something I would expect from a Michael’s craft section, with a thick, gel pen body and a tiny whirly bit at the end. With a robust 8 speeds ranging from an intense ‘low’ to a ‘SOMEONE’S BLASTING MY CLIT WITH A LASER’ high, there’s been a variety of ways I can experience this. The Zumio also boasts an impressive use time of four hours on one charge but…it does take 16 hours to charge. So, pros and cons I guess. It charges in a neat way, in its own cup standing up right. And the Zumio is waterproof, which is kind of awesome, since cleaning the little thing would otherwise be a nightmare.

But I admit, I’m not thinking about how cool the Zumio’s charging mechanisms are or about how grateful I am that it’s easy to clean because its waterproof. At least, not most of the time. No, when I see it on my nightstand just hanging out, I’m thinking about the laser focused intensity that I can use to literally force myself into orgasm. Because the hype train is right, HOLY FUCK is it intense. The Zumio is my depression masturbation savior. It’s just what I need when my vag feels numb from depression or my period. The Zumio pummels my clit to orgasm and I’m just too happy to let it…over and over again. It’s easy to give and just use the Zumio solo, but when I can bring myself to put the Zumio aside long enough to lube up a dildo, it makes for a VERY satisfying session.

The way I’ve used the Zumio most often is I press it into my labia majora and can feel the stimulation through the fleshy parts of my vulva. The best speed of eight on the Zumio is the third one, it hits the sweet spot of ‘powerful enough to get me off quickly’ without being so extreme that it overwhelms my clit and makes me cry. In the spirit of trying off-label uses, I also tried putting the twirly tip inside the mouth of my vag to see if it would feel good. But the thrashing feeling was so weird that I gave up after just a few seconds. This is fine, the Zumio is a clit toy and doesn’t need to go inside me. I’ll also use this on my clitoral hood or on the shaft of my clitoris. The times that I’ve dared pull back my clit hood and put the Zumio directly onto my clit, I wanted to fucking scream. The sensation is so severe and overwhelming that I can’t bring myself to actually do it to myself for all that long. A few times, I even felt a kind of pain which scared me off doing that too often. Girly Juice mentions that this would be awesome for a forced orgasm scene and I’m inclined to agree. The only time the Zumio is coming directly in contact with my clit is if someone else is wielding it.

The Zumio is like the Deathwish of vibrators. A vibrator that kicks you in the ass and wakes you up with a zippy, severe and joyful sensation. It’s also like Deathwish in that not everyone is going to like it. For some people, this amount of stimulation is going to feel just devastating on their clit. And that’s fine! But for those of us who get a rush from the extreme, the Zumio might be just your cup of coffee.

This toy was given to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review. Thanks Kitten Boheme (go read her stuff, she’s hilarious!)

May Wrap Up: Health, Heat and Home

Partnered Life

The 27th of this month marked one month of my boyfriend and I living together! We’ve finally gotten rid of all of our boxes and the place looks quite livable now. I’m in love with how bright this place is. We’ve made meals and had champagne here, so it’s truly become our place.

My boyfriend and I also had a vacation this month! We went to the Outer Banks and enjoyed some surf and sun. It was tons of fun, and I’ve collected many shells and sunburns from our trip. I highly recommend going there if you ever get the chance.

In addition to our beach trip, my boyfriend and I have also been out and about visiting my parents and my aunt. My aunt lives far out in the sticks, so we got to have a taste of country living. Donkeys brayed louder than I’d imagined they could; I held baby chickens who were cottony soft balls that scampered and peeped and I dangled my feet in an icy cold pool. I also had an exquisite Italian Cream Cake baked for my birthday. Simply glorious!

Health and Wellness

Well, this month was kind of tough on my health. I know it feels like I say that most every month, but this month has gifted me something new: a birthday scar! I have a little notch right between my eyes from firing a gun much larger than my petite size could handle. The kick back got me between the eyes and frightened my boyfriend. With luck my little scar will fill in, but if not, I’ll console myself by saying that it gives my face character.

The other major thing that happened this month, at least in the health department was dealing with my mother’s severe health crises. In the week after my birthday, my mother was in and out of the hospital and I flew back to make sure that she was alright and to be there for her. We don’t know why this happened to her; my mother has perfect health. But with medicine and a cautious recovery plan, it looks like my family and I can expect to see her recover.

Turn Ons and Toys

Well, when I wasn’t dealing with vacations or health crises, I did get a little horny. Here’s whats been on my mind and in my various orifices…

This month I’ve been a little erotically curious; I’ve been dipping my toes into more medical themed fetishes and anal play. I’m not always turned on by hot doctors giving me an exam, but something about May had me excited about getting finger fucked by a latex clad professional. I asked about this on Twitter and was welcomed by my people. So are rubber gloves a fetish unto themselves or merely a subdivision of the latex fetish. That might be something to examine in a later post…

I’ve made no secret of my desire to acquire knotted dildos, and XenoCat Artifacts has stepped up! I’ve gotten my hands on a GORGEOUS specimen called the Barghest. Given the pastel pinks and purples, I like to imagine this dildo is modeled off a pastel goth were-hyena girl who will knot me and dominate me. She’d be soft where I want her and hard where I need her and I realize I’m sounding more like a furry every minute.

The other toys I’ve been absolutely enamored of are the Zumio, which I got from Kitten (she’s amazing and HILARIOUS) and the Sensi from Uberrime which I reviewed here. One provides the most focused clitoral stimulation I’ve ever had, and the other provides effortless pussy-plugging pleasure. I’ll reviewing the Zumio soon enough, along with a few other adorable orange toys, but if you haven’t read my Sensi review, I’ll sum it up: IF YOU HAVE A VAG, BUY IT!

Miscellaneous

The Nasty Jacket Project

During the summer of 2018, I made a decision to pick up a denim jacket at a thrift store. That sparked a summer long project of collecting pins, patches and flair for my jacket to craft it into a perfect statement piece. During my search for the perfect assortment of pins and patches for this jacket, I found that there were a number of artists who made pins to signal some of my raunchier interests. While I can’t wear these pins out on a day to day basis, these pins have got me fantasizing about a new jacket. If I were to pick up a new denim jacket, I’d make it the Nasty Jacket. The Nasty Jacket would have only my NSFW flair on it, to let everyone know EXACTLY what I’m into and would make me look cute at the same time.

My Nasty Jacket doesn’t exist, but if I ever get the chance and some free time, here’s some flair I’d love to pin on it!

  • Shibari Enamel Pin by Twisted Jute
    • This is a kinda subtle pin for those of us who love rope bondage, but it’s still blatant enough to raise some eyebrows.
  • Banana Dick Pin by TheKinkyPeachShop
    • Look this pin is kinda goofy BUT it’s cute and it lets people know I’m interested in cock…and possibly interested in sucking cock.
  • Impact Play Merit Badge by Kinktionary
    • I love being spanked and the merit badge aesthetic is just PERFECT. I’d love to be gifted this pin from a dominant after weathering a potent impact play session.
  • Twisted Monk Enamel Pin or Patch
    • Either of these would work great for me since I’m a fan of Twisted Monk’s Rope kit. I still have my cotton rope set that I got in 2017 and my partner and have fond memories of tying me up in my dorm room.
  • Bruise Me by Cunning Linguist Co
    • The peach is adorable okay, and it lets my partner know that I want his hands all over my ass. I actually already own this pin; Cunning Linguist had a sale and I snapped it up immediately!
  • Monster Fucker Pins by Strange Bed Fellas
    • In addition to having some of the most GORGEOUS dildos (I am LUSTING over the Tyv, it’s such a handsome toy), this pin represents my love of monster boys and girls. Perfect for wearing when writing smutty Monster Prom fan fiction.
  • Love Bound Shibari Pin by Sugarbones
    • More rope bondage? More rope bondage. But this time in a pastel, cutesy aesthetic that suits me when I’m feeling more girly. I own the Babe With the Power pin already and I wear on my jacket all the time, so naturally I’d have to add Sugarbones to the Nasty Jacket.
  • Horny Enamel Pin by Sugarbones
    • I’m a little bit high libido, and this is a cute way to let people know. Also, it does have a little plausible deniability…so maybe I could wear it on my sfw jacket.
  • Slut Pin by Cutie Cult 666
    • Blatant and slutty but still super cute. Slut is one of the things I enjoy being called during sex, and pinning on my jacket would give me kind of a risky thrill. A little exhibitionist, a little bit quirky and completely cute.
  • BDSM Pin by Geeky and Kinky
    • Simple and to the point without being too dirty. This might be good for those of who are kinky and understated. I’m rarely understated, but I would wear to events that are sex positive but I’m not familiar with anyone there.
  • Kink Scout Patches by Threadmancer
    • While none of these are my kink, the scout aesthetic got me again ugh. What can I say? I wish there were more merit badge style kink pieces of flair!
  • Rope and Rose Patch by AnnaRoseIllustration
    • This is a classy way to flag bondage, and this list needed more patches. I can see this sewn onto the sleeve of my jacket, an elegant and kinky piece.
  • Cock Sucker Pin by Trash4Posers
    • Trash 4 Posers used to have a Cum Slut pin if I recall correctly, but it seems to be discontinued. All the same, I’m gunning to hone my blowjob skills and this is a good way to incorporate that into my flair.
  • Pervert Pin by L’Amour Propre
    • I got a custom ‘Nymphomaniac’ pin from L’Amour Propre a while ago, and it adorns my bag now! But unfortunately I’m still thirsty for L’Amour Propre so I’d snag this pin for the Nasty Jacket in a second.
  • Top Bottom or Switch Pin by New York Toy Collective
    • THIS PIN IS SO COOL. The ability to signal if I want to bottom or top is a really neat thing, and when I saw it I knew it’d be perfect for the NSFW version of my denim jacket.

This is a lot of flair for one jacket, but I just can’t help it. I love pins and flair, and I love kink, so blending the two together is going to create a jacket so bedecked in pins and patches that the denim will be almost invisible. It’s not a jacket I could wear on the daily, but something I’d admire in my wardrobe all the time.

What kinky flair have you seen? What would you put on your jacket? Let me know!

Stuffed by Silicone: The Sensi Dildo Review

Sex bloggers want two things out of a sex toy: something well-designed that satisfies our libido, and something that doesn’t force us to give up being lazy. We see these conditions satisfied in inventions like the Stronic, a pulsator toy that thrusts itself and was lauded by many a blogger and in innovations like lube dispensers. Toys that are badly designed are rightly roasted, but perhaps more frustrating are the toys that require things to be just so for us to come. So when I heard of a new Uberrime dildo that promised almost effortless sensation, my heart fluttered. Could it be true? Pleasure for almost NO EFFORT? SIGN ME UP! Folx, please spread your legs and clap your hands for the latest in dildo technology: The Sensi.

By most accounts, the Sensi is a fairly petite dildo. At just 4.5 inches long and 1.6 inches at the thickest and incredibly squishy, the Sensi is safe size-wise for most vaginas. The shape is a little unusual, a little reminiscent of a traditional butt plug due to the thinner neck. But the Sensi differs from its butt-plugging cousins as it features an unusual base meant to not chafe the labia which is greatly appreciated. This peculiar base makes the Sensi work perfectly for vaginal plugging, but not at all for anal plugging. While I kind of wish for a multi-use plug, I’m honestly not upset. Butt plugs are ubiquitous, vag only plugs are rare and exciting.

SENSI PRODUCT PHOTO
The Sensi as featured on Uberrime’s website. What a drool-worthy trio!

Having never had the chance to try a vaginal plug before, I was beyond excited. The only other plug I knew of was the Jollet, a toy beautiful, but purportedly quite hard and unforgiving in the orifices. So when the Sensi promised a softer experience, I felt giddy with delight. Squishing the silicone between my fingers, I knew I’d be in for it. Already visions were dancing through my head of how I would use my new prize. Most prominent in my mind was a kink scene featuring the plug in me all day long. I fantasized about how I would fare going about my daily errands while squeezing around the Sensi’s plush silicone, eliciting little shivers of pleasure I went plugged to the library.

As I slid the Sensi in, it locked in place as though it were a missing puzzle piece from my vagina. It had all the mental satisfaction of fitting a corner piece into it’s spot with all the sexual pleasure of a well-shaped dildo. Visiting a library while covertly squeezing around plush silicone felt FUCKING EXCELLENT. The Sensi presses against my G-spot, and stays in even during vigorous exercise all the while being comfortable to wear due to the softness. The base nestled between my labia agreeably, with the soft oval shape almost forgotten as I went about my day. The smallness of the base is also excellent, because it doesn’t block access to my clit and the sheer laziness of popping the Sensi in and holding the Exposed Nocturnal against my clit makes me grin every time. I feel almost smug with that level of ease. Were I more inclined to feel shame, I might feel a little embarrassed about how quick and easily I came with the Sensi. But I’m not inclined to feel shame; I fucking love how lazy and decadent the Sensi makes me feel.

As a kegel exerciser, I found the Sensi to be fairly good in this purpose, with more G-spot sensation coming as a reward for every squeeze. Idly squeezing the dildo as I read has become a favorite past time of mine and has helped me in the writing of more tedious pieces. And through some parts of this review, I’ve found myself slipping in the Sensi, ostensibly for more research but mostly because it felt amazing.

I’ve had only one bad experience with the Sensi. Feeling extra ambitious one day, I used it in conjunction with the Medium NJoy Pure Plug and that was a mistake. My orifices felt crammed too full and so I had to pull the Pure Plug out to avoid feeling like my butt and vag were being torturously pried open. I imagine though that I might eventually be able to do a pair of plugs if I slowly worked my way up to that, which I might someday do, if only to be one of the first to have both orifices plugged pleasurably.

Marco has created a toy for kinksters and lazy people alike, which is kind of amazing if you think about it with how much work kink usually involves. The Sensi deserves to be the next biggest thing; a dildo that not only do you not have to thrust to enjoy, but one that you can wear to work with everyone unknowing AND it has a comfortable base for long-term wear. At $39, this is a STEAL for an item that I frankly haven’t seen any other company attempt since Jollet, who’s products don’t lend themselves well to long-term wear. My toybox is being slowly overtaken by Uberrime, but the Sensi shines among my toys as something truly special.

This product was provided to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review. Thanks Uberrime and SheVibe!
