Why should I purchase a dildo? It was a question I asked myself when I first discovered sex toys. As one of the 75% of women who can’t reach orgasm from penetration alone, I couldn’t see the appeal. Sure, I loved having sex with my partner, but it was the connection we shared during the […]
I am based in the UK and have been in relationship with my long suffering boyfriend for 4 years. We both have a passion for sex, masturbation, sexuality and sex toys and we have spent the years experimenting and indulging our desires. I am not a sex educator, nor do I have any formal training or qualifications. My blog is brought to you by a highly sexed and open minded woman with over 10 years of sexual experience (With and without toys) under her belt. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it.

Books like Fifty Shades of Grey have brought BDSM to the mainstream, encouraging couples the world over to explore their kinky desires. The stories make it sound so exciting, but introducing BDSM into real-life relationships can be trickier. You know you want to experiment, but don’t know where to begin. From communication to safety, this […]
It’s been over two years since I last reviewed a prostate vibrator. In that time, we have experimented with a number of anal safe vibrators, but almost all of them were designed primarily for vaginal/g-spot use. There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s just that vibrators designed to be used vaginally are often larger (in length […]
I was casually browsing through the range of new products at Lovehoney when I spotted the Bondage Man UV Wax Play Candles. Having reviewed so many sex toys, it takes a lot for a product to truly excite me, but these candles did just that. Designed to glow under black light, they offered a new take […]
Shopping for your first vibrator, either for yourself or for someone special, can be a daunting prospect. As sex toys continue to rise in popularity, it becomes simultaneously easier and harder to make a good decision. Sure, you can now avoid that awkward visit to a seedy, back-street sex shop and purchase online from a respectable […]
So, we were sent a set of ultraviolet wax play candles for review this week and I just couldn’t resist getting the camera out again. It’s been way too long! Only problem is, I couldn’t choose just one image. How cool does this look on the skin? Keep it kinky people! Sinful Sunday is […]
Oxballs sex toys fascinate me. As a kinkster, it’s hard not to be drawn to a company who make multi-coloured puppy play butt plugs, electro-stim cock cages and so much more. They clearly have a lot of imagination and an unabashed attitude towards pleasure. This review is for the Oxballs Jerk male masturbation sleeve, which […]
There are very few vibrators I love as much as my Doxy Wand Massager, so when I heard that Doxy was developing a new sex toy (this one suitable for internal use), I had a million questions. Would this one be as powerful as the wand? Would it impress me just as much? After a […]
What is the best Christmas present a sex toy geek could hope for? I was hoping to find a few vibrating treats beneath the Christmas tree, but I certainly wasn’t expecting the email I received just a week before Christmas day. It was from Lovehoney – the UK’s biggest online sex toy retailer and the […]
My partner and I reviewed the Designer Edition (camouflage) CB6000 chastity device back in 2014 and despite experimenting with a number of devices since then, we have yet to find one that we like as much. Like all devices, it has a few niggles, but the CB6000 is the most comfortable device he has worn […]
I have been testing another amazing sex machine this month, this time from a company called F-Machine. This UK based manufacturer of super high-quality sex machines (seriously, they use the finest aircraft alloys and other state-of-the-art materials to create their gorgeous machines) got in touch to ask if I would like to review their flagship […]
Despite having positive experiences with a number of Fleshlight masturbation sleeves, my partner had become less and less excited about testing anymore. “They are starting to feel quite samey” he complained when I asked him why he felt so apathetic. Having a strong preference for intense stimulation (such as vibrations and the extreme texture found inside […]
After having such an amazing experience with the Hot Octopuss Pulse vibrator, my partner and I were looking forward to testing other vibrating sex toys for men. The IMTOY Piu vibrator is exactly the sort of toy we had in mind. Product Information: The IMTOY Piu is designed to stimulate the head of the penis via powerful […]
There’s nothing more exciting than being able to give away one of your all-time favourite sex toys and this month I am doing exactly that. I have teamed up with the amazing folks at Hot Octopuss, who have kindly offered one of my readers the chance to win a PULSE II DUO male masturbator worth £89! Dubbed […]

I really like the look of metal chastity devices, so when naughtytuckshop.co.uk asked if I would like to review the Bird Cage chastity device, I jumped at the chance. The Bird Cage is the fifth device to make its way into our chastity device collection and I was looking forward to comparing and contrasting it […]
If you have an interest in increasing the size of your penis (especially for sexual purposes) then you probably already know about penis extenders. Often made from a soft jelly or rubber material, the sleeve-like extenders are designed to be worn on the penis, giving you more length/girth for penetrating your partner. While this is a […]
There are so many male masturbation sleeves on the market, but there are not that many that are designed for hands-free use. For the most part, this isn’t a problem, but there are occasions when it would be beneficial to free up your hands. Perhaps you’d like to stimulate other erogenous zones, try new positions, […]
Have you ever wondered what the inside of your vagina looks like? I have, on occasion, but it wasn’t until recently that I started giving it some serious thought. My partner and I had discussed purchasing a vaginal speculum, as the thought of seeing inside my vagina really turned him on. I associated the speculum […]
Before the Vixen Mustang Royale dildo arrived, I owned three Vixen dildos. Just three; but I have been a die-hard fan of this brand since the day I tested my first (it was the Vixen Outlaw). There are so many reasons I love Vixen sex toys, from their use of body safe materials to the […]
Thanks to a company called sexmachines.co.uk, I have spent the last few months reviewing some fantastic, thrusting sex machines. In June, I put the incredibly versatile Sneaky Pete Pro Sex Machine to the test. I seriously thought it would be impossible to find another sex machine with as many adjustable features, but then the Blue […]
