Indigo Tries the DivaInner

8 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a classic Gin Fizz. It’s sort of weird, and you don’t think you’ll like it, but then it turns out okay.
This product was sent to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. You can purchase it here for around $33 (US) at time of posting.
The DivaInner Rabbit Vibe sits in a black box surrounded by black foam. It has a black charging cord next to it. The Vibe is purple with an S-shaped clitoral arm. The base of it is white, and rounded with one flatter part on the same side as the clitoral arm where the buttons are.
DivaInner approached me with a possibility of reviewing some products for them. When I looked at their website, I was extremely put off originally. The pages of their website read like some kind of Victoria’s Secret magazine with women in lingerie, and talking about women’s health. I was very close to saying “Thank you but no.” And then I saw the prices of their products. $33 US dollars for a rabbit vibrator made with body-safe materials is very reasonable.
So I held my breath, and I said yes. I was expecting the motor to be bad, and the shipping to take forever.
They only sell through Amazon, which is normally another red flag for me as a reviewer. However, it did mean that it came with Prime-speed shipping, so I had the toy in hand less than a week after I agreed to review it. I also heard from my friend Beaux from The Beauxdoir that they also reviewed it and found it lacking.
So it is pretty safe to say that I wasn’t excited about it toy when I received it. I was willing to try it for the price range. On the off chance that I liked it, I thought it might make pleasure more accessible to some folx who have money issues. I wasn’t convinced because it doesn’t feel waterproof (and I decided not to fully test it). Water resistant toys are okay, but harder to clean. When the package arrived, I plugged it in to charge, as was recommended. It charged up over the course of a day, and then I let it sit untouched for almost three days. I just couldn’t muster the gumption to really try it.
And then I did. Now, I have toys that vibrate internally. That was my favorite sensation for a long time. However, I don’t think I’ve had toys that vibrate and specifically hit the g-spot. Additionally, I have never owned a rabbit vibe. My body is all kinds of weird shapes and not-normal. It never occurred to me that a rabbit vibe would feel good. So the DivaInner was a whole new experience. First g-spot vibration, and first rabbit vibrator.
I liked it.
I turned it on and was pleasantly surprised that the motor wasn’t overly buzzy. It actually felt powerful. I can get off on a powerful buzz. In fact, I like that so much better than a weak rumble. I am a power slut, what can I say? So when I inserted this, I thought it would feel okay. What I didn’t expect was for my whole vulva to feel it. It almost felt like someone had grabbed the anterior of my vagina and just shook it. I felt it on my labia, my clit and my g-spot. (Hey, future partners, pay attention to this. It may be good to try!)
The DivaInner Rabbit Vibe is sitting on it's back to show off the buttons. The buttons are purple to match the vibe with the minus button closer to the vibrator, the power button in the center and the plus button closest to the butt end.
I never managed to orgasm on the lowest setting. It just isn’t in my body’s nature to enjoy low settings. As usual, I also ignored the patterns. I just hate patterns okay? They were there, and I’m sure there were a number of them. But I want pressure, and consistency. If I want patterns, I’ll find a partner to bang.
Now, let’s talk about the clitoral arm. It doesn’t reach the head of my clit. I tried, but it just won’t work. I sort of wedge it between my labia and I get lube and goop on my fingers and it just doesn’t work. However, the arm does reach the sweet spot between the head and my vaginal opening. And with a little help from my fingers, to get the pressure I crave, I can have some excellent orgasms with this toy. Wonders never cease, I really like this toy.
The controls are also a pleasant surprise. There are three buttons on this toy. If you press and hold the center power button, the toy turns on. After it’s on, the Plus and Minus buttons adjust the power. If you press the power button again, you cycle through patterns. You have to press and hold to turn it off. All in all, the controls are very intuitive. The charging is the same way. I dislike how thin the charging jack is on the cord, but once inserted into the toy, the light on the front gentle flashes to show it’s charging. Once fully charged, it’s a steady light. It’s not a complicated toy, which earns points for it in my book. I hate having to figure out too much just for pleasuring myself.
Overall, this toy is actually pretty good. It comes at a reasonable price for body safe materials. It may be a bit annoying to clean due to not being waterproof, but it’s a solid vibrator that has a nice shape. It also comes in it’s own box, which isn’t a complaint either.

Indigo Tries Bailey's Irish Cream!

10 out of 10
When I was growing up, I learned about the past of my family. We can trace lines into Wales, Ireland and Italy, all from different grandparents. I believe that the Italian lines are what show the most in our family. I grew up with this focus on La Familia that follows me to this day. The Irish in me is most apparent though. My eyes are hazel, with green and brown. I have light brown hair that turns yellow with enough sunlight. But my skin really shows it off. I am very pale, usually the lightest color on every foundation palette (and believe me, I’ve tried a few). I also sprout freckles like trees sprout flowers in the spring. The contrast between me and my family is pretty clear. I am tall and bring in the Welsh and Irish roots of my grandmother. The rest of my siblings and cousins are short, with dark hair, blue eyes and they actually manage to tan once in awhile. Tanning is something I’ve dreamed about but never done. It’s probably not physically possible.
So when I started learning about different cultures, I heard the usual jokes. “You’re Irish, so you’re always drunk.” “You’re Italian, so you’re part of the mob.” “You’re Welsh so you…um, what do the Welsh do?” It was the Irish jokes that rang the most true for me. I was raised as part of a family that allowed drinking at younger ages. I have stories of young Indigo getting drunk on accident, and I have the best stories of young Indigo getting drunk on purpose.
Bailey’s Irish Cream is a particular brand of alcohol represents a lot to me. It’s a delicious drink that hides in coffee. It makes something that I enjoy even better. But it’s also covert. It’s sneaky. If I’m not careful, it will take over the whole drink. Instead of enjoying a coffee with a kick, I’ll be making coffee that is mostly Bailey’s. It’s okay to do that occasionally, but I don’t want to do it all the time.
My mother is a huge fan of Irish Coffee. We don’t often eat out as a family. It’s even less often that the restaurant has Irish Coffee as an option. But when the stars align and we decide to have a post-dinner drink, my mother will always order an Irish Coffee. This drink is also common in my sister’s house, where I enjoy weekly visits rights now. Though there isn’t a lot of hard liquor there, she always has Bailey’s on hand. Because of these, I really associate Bailey’s Irish cream with the reliability of family. Sometimes that means it’s more like a pest, when you only have Bailey’s but you really wanted some Godiva liquor.
Now, Irish coffee also includes Jameson. And we know that our friend Jamie leads me to my best worst best decisions. And I think that only makes Irish Coffee even more appropriate for family. Family is such a rocky subject for me, and having something as untrustworthy as Jameson being paired so beautifully with Bailey’s is a perfect metaphor for my interactions with my family. And this is why I don’t drink Irish Coffee by myself. When I look into the glass, and I watch the cream swirl, I can’t help but remember the struggles and the bad times. But when I drink with the people who can pull me out of my cup and into the fun world, an Irish Coffee can ground me in my roots.
I’m not an alcoholic, but I am Irish in a lot of ways. The roots are subtle, and they’ve been overshadowed by a big Italian tree. But they still run through my blood and into my life. I wouldn’t give them up any more than I would remove Jameson from a good Irish Coffee.
Indigo’s Best Recipe for an Irish Coffee

  • 1 shot of Jameson Whiskey (no other brand will do)
  • Coffee, already brewed, and preferably still hot (cold brew is not great for this)
  • Bailey’s (to taste)

Brew the coffee and grab a mug. Pour the coffee into your mug leaving a lot of room for cream and sugar. Sugar the coffee almost to taste (you want it slightly less sweet to accent the other flavors). Do the shot of Jameson. Pour another. Put THAT shot in the coffee. Why? Because something can kick in while the coffee cools enough to drink. Lastly, add the Bailey’s until it reaches the desired color. You can top with whipped cream too, if you’re like me. Otherwise, enjoy as it is!
Additional Idea! For an Iced Irish Coffee, make some coffee the day before and pour into an ice cube tray. Use those ice cubes to cool off your coffee!
Additional Additional Idea! You can also just sip Bailey’s with some coffee ice cubes. Bailey’s on the rocks is a delicious and refreshing dessert drink!
