Indigo Tries the Sola Cue!

Happy Holiday Season, Party People! This is the fifth post in my 12 days celebration! I know it’s a few weeks late, but that is what happens when major life events mix with crippling depression! What better way to celebrate Capitalism than posting reviews where you can purchase these fine items with my affiliate links?

Pairs nicely with Champagne. It’s a solid alcohol, tasty enough, and it will get you through, but it’s reputation precedes (and slightly wrecks) it.
This toy was sent to me by Blush novelties in exchange for this review. You can purchase it from my friends at Betty’s Toybox or from Shevibe
The Sola Cue and it's box sit on a yellow background. The Cue is a pale blue, with a slight curve to it. It has one end that is slightly larger, and the handle has a darker blue cap. There are two buttons, one plus and one minus.
I had read some reviews of the Sola Cue and they touted it as a fabulous g-spot toy with rumbly vibrations. As a lover of g-spot stimulation, I really wanted to try this toy to see how it held up. Additionally, I loved the sleek look of this toy. I requested this from Sola directly because I was so interested. They happily sent it along for my review.
I have reviewed other Sola products, so I wasn’t surprised by the charging mechanism, which can be a little bit finicky. I am used to it from the Noje Wand, which came with me on my camping trip out west. It was pretty easy to get the Cue charged since I wasn’t living out of my car like my summer with the Noje Wand. After charging for the recommended first time, I saw that there was a short battery life of only one hour. In reality, I probably only get about six to eight good wank sessions out of this toy as I was testing it. Now, my wank sessions are only about ten minutes long on a particularly decadent day. Normally, I take three minutes and orgasm fast before bed. So for someone who has a lot of time between starting a masturbation session and the final orgasm, this toy might be a bit of a struggle. Be prepared to charge this toy often in that case.
The  Sola Cue is elegant in almost every way. The design is modern and the lines are very nice and sleek. I love how the silicone feels, and it’s firm without being overbearing. But the thing that I love most is the power buttons. When you press and hold the plus button, the toy turns on. When you hold the minus button, it turns off. I never looked at the manual, but I instinctively knew how it worked. The buttons also cycle through the settings once the toy is on. It’s extremely simple and use-friendly. Those are always aspects I like in a toy.
This toy is quite firm, which is something I enjoy in an insertable, as we know. I love that it’s long enough to reach my g-spot without losing the handle into my vagina, which can be a problem with some toys that don’t account for larger labia. However, I think that Sola missed an opportunity here. If the toy had been a little bit longer (but not wider), they could have had a really versatile toy that hit the a-spot as well. This would have provided the industry with a toy geared at both spots, as well as the first toy to be designed to vibrate the a-spot (to my knowledge).
The Sola Cue sits on the same yellow background. It is position to emphasize the curve and the larger head.Missing this opportunity certainly didn’t cause the Cue to lose points in my mind, obviously. Sola never promised something it didn’t deliver on, which is the real reason I deduct from scores on this blog. However, I did find the Cue underwhelming in a lot of ways. This is partially due to it being talked up so much. However, part of it does have to do with the actual design.
For me, the Cue doesn’t curve quite enough curve to hit the g-spot without some effort.  This is a bit awkward for me, and I imagine it’s probably even more so for those who have joint issues. However, I know I have a g-spot that enjoys being practically kicked into submission because I’m some kind of sensation edge-lord. So in order to meet more needs than mine, they limited the curve of the Cue.  However, it lost something for me by using that gentler curve.
Additionally, so many people mentioned the motor of this toy. However, I found that the motor wasn’t especially strong for me. I have to admit that I am a power slut, which I also feel like I’ve made clear in the past. However, this motor did not blow me away like it has others. Additionally, I found that this toy was louder than I expected in use. It was kind of hard to get lost in my orgasm because the toy is louder than I expected. It is not up to the level of the Queen Bee by any means, but it was distracting.
The Sola cue is resting on the same background, but it has been turned to show off the two power buttons.
This toy does feel good. It’s in a lovely place between a straight vibe and a wand in terms of size and strength. It does hit the g-spot for me as well as it does for other people, but it still consistently gets me off. I fully believe that this toy is right for many people who enjoy g-spot stimulation, and the major downfall in this review is my own lust for sensations on my bits.

Indigo Tries the Rocket Plug!

Happy Holiday Season, Party People! This is the fourth post in my 12 days celebration! What better way to celebrate Capitalism than posting reviews where you can purchase these fine items with my affiliate links?

8.5 out of 10
This plug pairs nicely with a forty. It’s so big, not every everyone can handle it.
This plug was sent to me by Blush Novelties in exchange for an honest review. You can purchase it from my friends at Shevibe for about $25 (USD) at time of posting. 
The Performance Rocket Plug sits on a shelf with a bag as background. There are rainbows printed on the bag, and three glittery patches. One patch is a rocket ship. The Rocket Plug is indigo in color, and about 6 inches long. It is a basic butt plug shape with an extra wide base (about three inches in diameter).
I have to do this. I have to admit defeat. I have managed to fit so many things into my ass. I have almost been fisted there. I got the Destiny there. I’ve stretched and relaxed. I’ve lubed and masturbated. I have done everything I know. But I’ve finally met my match with the Rocket plug. I even delayed posting this review because I wanted to badly to get it in at least once before publishing. It became a competition between me and this inanimate object. But this is it. I’ve lost. I admit defeat.
I requested the Rocket Plug directly from Blush when I saw them at Woodhull this year. I saw the size and I took it as a personal challenge. When it arrived at my door, I was ready. I was going to get this plug inside me as soon as I could. So I lubed it, and I laid down with a vibrator. And I pushed. And I thrust gently. I waited. I stopped. I started again. I got really turned on. I accidentally had an orgasm. I pushed again. I got really turned on. I gave up. “Next time. Next time I’ll get that plug in.”
And I tried many more times over the past three months. Dear followers, I have now come before you with my confessions laid bare. I couldn’t delay this review any longer.
The Rocket Plug is out of it's case in front of the same bag with printed rainbows. It is upright on it's base, ready to be used.What is the Rocket Plug? Well it’s a silicone plug that Blush produces as part of it’s performance line. It is about six inches long and two inches wide at it’s widest point. I knew going into this that the plug was not for a slouch. This plug meant serious business. Or serious buttness if you prefer. I think a large part of the allure of the Rocket plug was the fact that it is Indigo, because I am a Leo and I like things that are like me. However, I would be ashamed if I didn’t mention that the silicone feels amazing. It’s silky smooth. It almost makes me think of the word “soft” except that the shore is actually quite firm. It was part of the reason I assumed I would be able to conquer the plug. It’s beautifully tapered and so smooth. Surely I would insert it right away!
And I know what you’re all thinking. If I didn’t get this plug inserted, how can I review it properly? Well, I am nothing if not resourceful. And I’ve always been interested the idea of vaginal plugs. It’s a toy that would stay in place, which I could clench around as I orgasm. So I gave it a try. It was easy to insert vaginally because I am a Diameter Deity, and damn that silicone is good. And then I used my vibe.
It almost worked. I came, but the plug slid out as I did. I sort of expected it, because that is common with toys and my vagina. It’s sort of an eject seat without meaning to be. However, I inserted it again and gave it another shot. But this time I didn’t use a vibe immediately. I let the plug sit there, and then I tapped the base. Good gods above, that felt amazing. The stretch and filling was everything I’ve wanted, and the force was felt across the legs of my clit because of that stretch. One day, I plan to have a partner just sit there and tap (or knowing me, punch) the bottom of this plug while inserted vaginally. I expect it will be a very good orgasm.
The Rocket Plug is sitting in the front pocket of a bag that has rainbows and glitter patches on it. The head of the plug is just visible over the top of the pocket.
Cleaning this plug is extremely easy. The silicone means soap and water will do, and the smells are easy to get out with some bleach water or boiling. Since there is almost no texture on this plug, there’s almost no place for gunk to get caught. And because there is no seam or ridge between the base and the plug, it’s comfortable for insertion and easy to clean!
Overall, the downfalls of this plug are that it revealed I have more work to do on my butt capacity. Even that isn’t a downfall, because I am goal oriented, and I am going to make it happen, damn it. I can tell the quality of this plug is good. The shape and size are excellent. Overall, I am excited to own this plug, and I will continue working to conquer it. Believe me when I say there will be celebration when (not if) I succeed.

Indigo Tries the Packer Gear Jock Strap!

Happy Holiday Season, Party People! This is the third post in my 12 days celebration! What better way to celebrate Capitalism than posting reviews where you can purchase these fine items with my affiliate links?

10 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a Gin and Tonic. It doesn’t have a whole lot of flash, but it’s classy and stable. Always there for you.
This toy was sent to me by the amazing folks at Betty’s Toybox. You can purchase it here for about $30 (USD) at time of posting. If you’re interested in other styles of harness from the same line, take a look here.
The Calexotics Packer Gear Jock Strap is sitting in it's box. The box has a simple mannequin pictured wearing the harness on it. There is a L/XL tag in the bottom corner.
Now, I have tried a couple of harnesses at this point. I have picked out various things about them that I like, and I know exactly what I didn’t like. In the case of the Sportsheets, I did enjoy the adjustable nature of it, but I did not enjoy how complicated it felt to put on, nor the material of the straps. With the Tomboi, I really liked how secure it felt, but as a packer, it was sort of awkward finding a way to wear the dick.
Betty’s Toybox offered me the Jock Strap next. This is a harness by CalExotics. It comes at a much lower price point than the Tomboi, which is the first reason it has such a high rating. However, I have found my new favorite harness, which I have found to be versatile and strong.
The second reason is undoubtedly how it fits. The L/XL fits me perfectly, which is the first time in awhile that I’ve felt sizing labels are accurate. One downside is that this is the largest size offered, and that does make me worry. Though I am fat, I am not the largest size that exists and needs this product. And because I love this harness so much, I’d love to recommend it to more people. The properly sized elastic is so much easier to work with than the straps and pulling of the Sportsheets harness. However, I did luck out with this sizing, and these slide on easily and with no fuss. Once on, it stays in place extremely well.
Now, I will always have a sweet spot for this harness because it’s the first harness I used to really bang someone. I have received blowjobs in harnesses and dry-humped with one on, which was great for testing. However, this is the first harness which I put my dick into, the dick that I would have if I could have a dick attached to me forever. And then with that dick, I banged someone until they came. It was a shock to both of us, frankly. They didn’t think the dick would fit, and I was genuinely terrified, and willing to settle for “It isn’t awful.” So when they came, it was one of the most amazing and wonderful surprises. My dick did that. I tell you what, I never understood teenage boys quite so well until I started my medical and physical transition.
The Packer Gear Harness is unfolded on a chair next to it's box. It is all black and has a waistband, with a pouch on the front. There are two straps designed to go under the cheeks and around the hips.But I digress. During that whole bang session, as I learned how to move my hips, and stand just the right distance so as to not abuse my bang buddy’s vagina, this harness stayed firmly in place. It felt so natural to have my dick right there. It was truly a gender euphoric experience, and I hope to bang many more people with this combination. So this harness is always going to be quite special to me. I now have a history with it, and I know I like it.
However, it is also described as being a packer harness. Now, all of my harnesses have been used as packing harnesses at one point. The Tomboi was my go-to for a long time because the Sportsheets harness is a little bulky under jeans. However, the issues I had with the Tomboi as a packer is that it’s underwear. So I placed the packing penis into the pouch, but never let the shaft through the hole. In jeans, it was awkwardly outlined when I did that. So I placed it into the pouch and let it sit here. Sometimes, it would move awkwardly, and the Tomboi’s material is so tight, it didn’t look like I was packing at all. It feels good, but it doesn’t have the same look. Not to mention that going to the bathroom was a fun adventure every time. I usually had to carefully pull down the Tomboi to make sure my dick stayed in.
However, the Jock Strap is a beautiful solution. It’s not bulky, but it’s not trying to be underwear. So I place my dick with the shaft through the o-ring. Then I wear underwear over top. My pants stay comfortable, and I feel like it’s more natural. My dick stays in a comfortable place, with just enough showing that I feel really confident as a guy. So I can use a packer penis for everyday wear, and then easily switch it out for a firmer toy to play with.
The last part that I love about this packer is how easy it is to care for. Cold water wash, and hanging to dry is the easy care instructions. I haven’t noticed any fading, or stretching of the elastic. The construction of this harness is excellent quality.
Overall, I really love this harness. Now just for personal reasons, but for utility reasons. It doesn’t try to be a complete piece, and so it becomes more versatile and natural for me to use. I have rarely had the opportunity to gush about a toy which gives me such a good gender euphoria. I will be using this harness so often.
The Packer Gear Jock Strap hangs off the back of a chair. It looks casual, as if it was just used.
This toy was sent to me by the amazing folks at Betty’s Toybox. You can purchase it here for about $30 (USD) at time of posting. If you’re interested in other styles of harness from the same line, take a look here.

Indigo Tries the Fun Factory Laya II

Happy Holiday Season, Party People! This is the first post in my 12 days celebration! What better way to celebrate Capitalism than posting reviews where you can purchase these fine items with my affiliate links?

7 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a Sex on the Beach. Constantly looking for the substance that is getting you drunk, but the base components are consistently good.
This product was sent to me by the kind folx at SheVibe.com. It is sold in Pool Blue (pictured), Baby Rose and Dark Violet. At time of posting, it retails for about $100 (USD).
The Fun Factory Laya II sits on a fuzzy dark background. It is sky blue, and crescent shaped. It is wider on one end to create what looks like a handle.
When looking for review toys, the top of my list is always Fun Factory toys. I absolutely love this company. My love for them started when I was in sex toy retail and their US East Coast rep came to talk about their unionized factory, their attempts to minimize packaging and the toy lines in general. There was some clear transference of my love for the rep onto the company. I enthusiastically recommend this company all the time now. I have found their products to be the consistent in quality and price. The motors are always rumbly, and the products are usually waterproof, which I view as standard needs for any sex toy company that makes vibrators.
The Laya II, is a follow up to the Layaspot, which was water resistant and battery operated. I never bothered to look closely at the Layaspot because I prefer my toys to be rechargeable. This reduces waste and cost for me. However, I know that being battery operated brings down the cost of toys, which is why Fun Factory has several options of that nature. My elitist views do not need to overwhelm this review, however.
So the Laya II is a small vibe that is designed to be traveler friendly. I will admit that I didn’t have sense of the size when I requested it. I was quite shocked to find that it was much smaller than I expected. The description mentions that the shape is good for laying on a vulva, or cupping balls during a blowjob. It also talks about easily fitting into a hand “letting it disappear into your play.”
Now, I’ll be honest. I didn’t attempt to use the Laya II with a partner. I saw two partners in the testing duration of this toy. One has their own vibrator preferences and the other isn’t a reviewer, and we were too busy having other types of sex, so it was never tested. However, I can’t see myself enjoying the use of the Laya II during sex just based on my solo play. This toy is small, and it does fit pretty nicely into the hand. But I’m not going to lie, I used the wrong side of it the first time I used it.
The Fun Factory Laya II on a dark background. It's set so that it rests on both ends of the crescent. The buttons are visible on the wider end. There is a power button, an up button and a down button.
I start on my clit with vibrators, usually. And I always start with just the side that vibrates, and work around from there, figuring out the ways to use it. Well, the first time I used this, the “handle” side vibrated a little, and it didn’t make sense to stick the buttons in my labia. But alas, we have now touched upon the problems I have with the Laya II.
You see, it’s designed as that handy crescent, with one end vibrating and the other having residual vibrations. The buttons are on the end that vibrates. It sort of makes sense because the Laya II is so small that your fingers can reach it if you’re using the toy as a cupping toy. But I can’t actually use it to cup my vulva the way it’s designed. When I tried, I got my hand covered in lube and Laya went for a swim in my labia. Now, I have large labia, because everything about me is big (if you know what I’m saying). So someone who is more petite might not have the same issues with this vibrator. But it is a common theme for me to test toys which want to go swimming in my genitals and I’m a little tired of fishing them out again.
So what does this mean? Well when I use the Laya II, I place the end that vibrates (with the buttons) into my clit and I use it. However, in order to touch the “go faster” button, I have to dig through my labia just to reach it. At that rate, I might as well just use my fingers to masturbate because they are already right there. Basically, the design just isn’t a good option for me. The Laya II will be another toy that gets placed into my shoe-organizer near the bottom and forgotten for this reason.
However, there are some good points to this toy, and the design works for some people, because the Layaspot, which has the same shape, is popular. So let’s talk about some of the positive points. The 8 speeds is a nice touch because I like a lot of power levels. I think that makes it a good toy for those who like it soft and power sluts like me. It’s also waterproof, which meets my standards. And since it it’s fun factory, the motor is nice and rumbly. Additionally, being Fun Factory means it has that great magnetic charging system that I’m obsessed with.
Overall, the quality of the toy isn’t in question. Fun Factory has once again delivered another vessel for their rumbly motor which will last for awhile, and meets all my standard needs.  However, I will question whether or not this was designed for fat folks, and my instinct is that it wasn’t. The Laya II isn’t a travesty. But it’s not for me.

Indigo Tries the Creamed and Sugared Verona!

10 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a Tequila Sunrise. This piece looks attractive, and has a smooth finish. Universal for many reasons, and brings together some beautiful elements.
This toy was sent to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. All the opinions here are my own. If you would like to purchase your own, you can do so here for about $65 (USD) at time of posting.
The Creamed and Sugared Verona is sitting on a dark green pillow. The paddle is the standard inch thick, about a hand span wide and about three hand spans long. It has a slightly ornate shape with one shallow point for the head. Just below that point, there is a cut out on each side in the shape of a crescent. These cut outs could clearly accommodate the shape of a wrist.
So the folks at Creamed and Sugared tabled at Woodhull this year, and since I was a volunteer, it wasn’t until day two or three that I actually managed to make it into the vendor area, Let me tell you, I am sad I was delayed. I originally began chatting with Austin who told me about their products and how they started. I was ecstatic to see something new on the market. I immediately fell in love with the Rose and Thorn, which has several functions. We all know how much I love versatile products that manage to pull off several different types of sensations or uses and do it well.
So of course, I let them know I was a blogger and that I wanted to review for them. This is partially because they are local to me, which feels rare in this industry. But also, I just genuinely wanted to review their products, which looked to be lovely, and of good quality. Of course, I do have a fondness for wood, especially in a sexual and kink context. There is something about how much can be done with a wooden paddle. And if that paddle is designed to do many different things, then I just…swoon!
So after a few emails back and forth, I acquired two products. The other will be a surprise until I post that review. But today, I want to focus on the Verona. Because I am local, I don’t have any insight on packaging or shipping from these folx. I met up with them at an event for the hand-off and shoved the paddle into my bag. I was glad to have a bag as big as I did, because I always underestimate the size of impact toys somehow. The Verona is about five inches wide and 14 inches long. Honestly, it is the perfect length for a simple impact toy. I have reviewed longer toys, such as the Funkit Beat Cleaver which provides an ample opportunity for swing control. But the Verona is a different type of toy altogether.
The Verona has some chance for alternate thwacking by changing the grip, but the handle is much shorter, so there isn’t as much variation as the 12″ of the Beat Cleaver. Additionally, it lacks the sideways ability that the Beat Cleaver offers. Unless you wanted to puncture the receiver, I would only use this flat as an impact toy. Those points would probably prove too much for me unless I was very deep into subspace. And I do mean the kind of sub space where I would enjoy any sensation at all. The flat of this toy has a nice sting to it, but it doesn’t offer anything that I haven’t achieved with my other paddles.
Okay, so the Verona as an impact toy is good, but somewhat basic. However, it has another major selling point that I love. There are two curved cutouts in the edge of the Verona near the head, one on each side. They are wide enough that one can use them to catch a hand, or an ankle, or even a neck if the receiver is small enough. It’s actually possible to pin someone’s hand somewhere with the Verona, which is a delightful feature of this toy. Though it remains simple as a paddle, this feature, plus the great price really bumped the Verona into a 10 for me.
The Verona sitting with the handle up with one blue teacup on each side on top of a green cloth backdrop.
I used this toy in a public play space after showing it off to a few people. Despite my love of deep impact and heavy woods, I was okay with the feel of zebra wood, which is slightly lighter than I usually prefer. It was completely made up for because the patterns are fantastic. I t creates a beautiful and striking paddle to show off. On top of the brilliant choice in the wood, I can feel the quality of the craftsmanship in the paddle as I hold it. There is a beautiful shellac finish, which leaves the paddle shiny and begging for use. It also happens to be body-safe with just soap and water cleaning, which is part of the standard sealing process over at Creamed and Sugared.
All in all, I love the Verona. It’s easy to use and clean, with a great feeling in my hands, and on my butt. The price is very good for the product that I received. I love the way they work with the wood to emphasize it’s selling points, and they offer maintenance on their own products (for a small fee), so you never have worry about ruining it through DIY methods. I certainly have a new company to add to my list of favorites!

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 the Blush Avant P5 Plug!

7 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a nice red ale. It’s robust and got great color. Sometimes, it’s a bit strong going down, but it feels mostly good.
This plug was sent to me by Blush in exchange for a fair and honest review. You can purchase it from my friends at Betty’s Toybox or my friends at Shevibe! At the time of this publishing, it retails for about $30 (US). 
The Blush Avant P5 sits in a plastic case that has cardboard edges. It is colored the same as the Gender Fluid pride flag. From Tip to base, the colors are peach, white, purple, black and blue. It is quite large. Next to the package sit two pins. One is a They pronoun pin. The other says
I got to hang out with the folx from Blush again this year at Woodhull. I’ve always been a fan of Ducky and her work, so I was extra excited to see her at Woodhull and request some review toys from her. I was feeling especially enthusiastic about butt stuff that week, so I requested two plugs (but you’ll have to wait for the second review to find out what the other one is). Since it was Woodhull, and that is where I feel really accepted for my gender, I picked out the Avant P5. The P5 is a plug that is poured in the colors of the Gender-fluid flag.
I understand the craftsmanship that happens with those types of pours, and as a result, I am really impressed with the quality of this plug, especially given the low price. The colors are bold and crisp, with the lines blurring only the exact amount they should. There are no seams visible. Overall, it gives this plug a very clean and professional look that I absolutely love.
I will admit that when I looked at the plugs, I only looked at their colors, to choose which flag I wanted to fly. I didn’t pay attention to the names of the plugs themselves. However, when I looked up the Pride Line to make sure I got the specifications right, I found the names of all the pride plugs. I’m less than enthusiastic about them, honestly. There are some which are fine, like the Genderfluid one being called “Fluid,” and the Non-Binary plug, which is called “Beyond.” However, the Lesbian one is called “Beauty” and the Transgender one is called “True Blue.” It may sound silly, but I feel like taking large groups such as Lesbian and Transgender, and then pairing them down to beauty and true blue respectively feels weird. Are trans folx true blue because they are all sad? Are they all obsessed with the color blue? Why? Did I miss a memo? And what about the lesbians who aren’t obsessed wit beauty? What if that word doesn’t apply to a butch lesbian? And why on earth would beauty be the most important word associate with lesbians? These names are largely unnecessary, honestly. It’s not quite enough to put me off the toy line completely, but it does feel a bit forced.
The Blush Avant P5 sits on a shelf with a They pronoun pin and a pin that says It took me a week or two after receiving this plug to actually use it. This wasn’t due to lack of excitement or anything. I just hadn’t done much butt stuff for three months, and this plug isn’t small. It’s got 4.25″ of insertion, with a 1.5″ diameter. As a result, when I came back to butt stuff, it did take a little bit of warm up before I could use this plug. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it for beginners. If you’re looking to step up your butt game, however, this is a great step up to the 1.5″ level. It’s easy to insert and smooth all the way down. It also has a safe base, which feels really good once inserted.
However, there are also downsides to this plug for me. Somehow, my butt just prefers smaller necks. I like size internally, but the neck on this plug is just too wide. I couldn’t manage to get it comfortable for any length of time. When I played with it inserted, it just fell out because the different between the neck and the plug itself was not big enough. There was no hope for me to wear it long-term. When I sat down, it just did not work with my cheeks and I kept slouching to try and get comfortable. That said, it’s rare that I find a plug which does work long term for me. So if your cheeks are easier to please, this could be a great plug for you.
This plug delivered exactly what I hoped. It was a hefty size, with gorgeous colors. It’s not too expensive, but it feels well-made. I don’t know if I’ll use it that often, because I prefer my plugs with narrow necks, but I am glad that I own it. I will gladly display this for all my lovers to see.
This plug was sent to me by Blush in exchange for a fair and honest review. You can purchase it from my friends at Betty’s Toybox or my friends at Shevibe! At the time of this publishing, it retails for about $30 (US). 

Indigo Tries the Spareparts Tomboi!

9 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a Dark and Stormy. It’s deep and refined, like a good pair of mens underwear. But it’s also a little fruity with a nice pop.
This toy was sent to me by my good friends at Betty’s Toybox in exchange for a fair and honest review. You can purchase it here in Red or here in Black. At the time of this post, they run for about $90 (USD). 
The Spareparts Tomboi box is sitting on a wooden floor with a yellow wall behind it. The box is black and has a picture of a masculine-leaning person on it.
I thoroughly enjoy dicks, and what I enjoy also as much as dicks in me is dicks on me. I previously owned only one harness, which I really enjoyed using with a partner. It had almost everything I wanted in a harness, including plus-sized options, except it was incredibly gendered as femme. Sometimes, I don’t want to be femme. In reality, I’m more likely to feel masc when I want to pack or use a strap on. With my harness being so gendered, I would sometimes put it on and feel immediately uncomfortable. To aid this gap in my toys, I requested the Tomboi Harness, created by Spareparts. The kind folx over at Betty’s Toybox sent this, along with the Pierre to help my review queue while I was out of state during the summer.
The Tomboi runs about $90 (US) at time of posting. This is quite a large investment for many people, which I am not ignoring here. If cost is an issue, there are a few other brands that are worth looking at, including the Sportsheets Divine Diva, which I have reviewed. However, for those who aren’t plus-sized, I would recommend looking through this list for something appropriately sized. I have no reviews of these, but others may.
However, the price is the one major downfall of the Tomboi. When I opened the package, I was immediately won over by the fabric of this harness. It comes packaged in a carrying pouch of the same material the harness is made from. It feels slippery, smooth and still durable. It doesn’t feel out of place when I run my hands over it. Though I don’t run into much nylon underwear, I don’t expect that this harness would not be all that eye-catching or unusual to find in someone’s underwear drawer. I requested the red option because I love how the details of the waistband and the seams make it feel like just another pair of underwear that I’m putting on.
The Spareparts Tomboi is unfolded and laying on a clean wooden floor while the carrying bag lays beside it. The bag is propped up so that you can see the SpareParts logo. The bag is all read nylon. The Tomboi itself is mostly red with a black waistband and black trim. It's shaped roughly like typical men's underwear.
As a harness, the design of the Tomboi is perfect. It has two fabric pieces in the lining of the cod piece that overlap just enough to securely hold a toy in place, but open enough that it’s easy to remove the toy. In the front of the underwear itself is a ring that is completely hidden within the fabric, so the transition from underwear into harness feels discreet and seamless. This works perfectly with how my dysphoria manifests. This toy doesn’t trigger it because it just feels like another part of the underwear. It makes it easy to forget the dick in place is silicone and not factory-installed.
The ring is stretchy enough to fit dildos from 1.25 inches up to 2.25 inches, which allows for the most common dildo sizes to work with the harness. Additionally, since the holding fabric is in two pieces, it’s possible to part them and use this harness with a two-sided dildo. I will admit that getting a two sided dildo inserted into myself, at the same time as pulling up tight underwear was a bit of a challenge. I would not recommend trying it out without making sure you’re stretched properly. And I mean that for your vagina AND your legs. That was some exercise.
The SpareParts box is open to reveal the front of the Tomboi. It's wrapped with tissue paper. The focus of the photo is the o-ring, which is about an inch in diameter in the center of the Tomboi.This harness feels really secure in use. Though I haven’t fucked anyone with it, I did masturbate with it. The experience felt comfortable and not forced with this harness. To top it off, I could fit many different dildos in there, so I could follow my feelings on which dildo to use. This means that when I want my regular dildo (the one that is my dick), I can use it, or I can substitute a different one by my partners’ request.
In short, I’m a huge fan of this harness. When I used this harness to pack, everything stayed in place all day. When I use it for play (on my own), it was comfortable and natural to wear. Based on how I tested it during a solo session, I am sure that it will be a huge part of my partnered scenes, and I’m excited to use this harness more.

Indigo Tries the Blush Novelties Noje W3 Wand

9 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a Shirley Temple, to go. I chose something non-alcoholic because drinking and driving is singularly awful. Don’t do that. Also, this drink is enjoyed with poise and elegance.
This toy was sent to me by the kind folx at SheVibe in exchange for a fair and honest review. At time of publishing, this toy retails for about $36 (USD). You can purchase in Sage (green), Rose (pink), or Wisteria (purple). The wand attachments can be purchased here for about $8 (USD) at time of publishing.
The Noje W3 Wand and the Noje W3 Wand attachments are sitting in their boxes next to a packed green bag, a green sleeping bag and a bicycle helmet. There is further description of the toy in the next image and in the post.
I have a confession to make. I wasn’t excited about this wand when I requested it. I have been using my Doxy wands for a year now, and they are powerful and rumbly. I am the type of human who puts the wand on my clit now because I’m such a power slut. I just live my life in such an electrifying and ridiculous way that I was convinced the Noje would do nothing for me.
And then I left my house for two months and lived in a tent.
The Noje is a wand that is compact, running only about 5 inches long with a head that is about an inch in diameter. It comes in the standard plastic blister case, and it has a single button on the butt of it. When I turned it on, I found that it was fairly quiet, but more rumbly than I expected. Because of these things, I decided to take it with me on my ad-tent-ture.
Let me be clear. I was in no way glamping (glamour camping). I had four canvas walls, a canvas roof (reinforced with tarp), an air mattress, and one bin which held all the clothes I brought with me. The fanciest part of my living situation was that I got to hike up a hill to make it to the place I worked where there was a coffee pot. I could use that coffee pot to make ramen, which I did for just about every meal. My butt is extremely fantastic now, thank you for asking.
Because of the whole canvas walls thing, I didn’t bring any fancy sex toys. I had one butt plug, two toys I needed to review this summer, and my pure wand in case anyone on Tinder wanted to watch me squirt (which they did not, apparently). For the vibrator option, I brought the Noje Wand. Let me tell you, I am delighted that I made that choice.
The Noje wand looks very nonthreatening when you look at it. It comes in two pastel colors: sage (for us mountain lovers), wisteria (for English garden lovers), and rose (for general garden lovers). The head of it is simply white, and overall, it looks elegant. I would not have been embarrassed if someone found this toy while visiting because it looks so glamorous. Perhaps I was glamping a little after all. In order to turn the toy on, you have to hold that button for at least four to five seconds. This is another reason why I loved traveling with it. The idea of this toy turning on in a bag was somewhat preposterous thanks to that handy feature.
A close up of the Noje W3 wand and the Noje Wand attachments in their boxes. The wand is a sage green with a white head and the attachments are all white.
The button on the bottom of the toy is also white, and it does not glow, except when the toy is on or charging. When charging, the butt glows with a gently flashing light, and when it is charged, that light stays on. When the toy is on, the light stays on the whole time. Now, the light on the butt is brighter than I would prefer. I was afraid that my camp neighbors could see all the outlines when I used this toy. However, this use as an indicator is simple and elegant, just like the wand itself. I love that it was easy to figure out and I never had to pick up the manual or box. Additionally, the charging cord is connected with magnets, which I still think is cool and no one will convince me otherwise. It makes up for the toy having a non-universal charger, which I know some people hate.
So how does the toy feel in use? Well, I will admit this. If I stayed home and always had my Doxy wands available, I wouldn’t use this toy very often. It’s not as powerful as my clit enjoys, and the options available get me off harder and faster. It’s a standard mini wand, nothing special. It’s got 5 different speeds (which all felt pretty good) and 5 rhythms (which I never touch because I’m a lazy reviewer and I know those will not get me off ever). These are all cycled through with the one button, which is standard.
You know what? I don’t remember this wand promising me anything special. It is built to be travel-sized and used during travel. As a travel toy, this wand excels for me. It’s on par with my favorite bullet from Fun Factory, which is in my safer sex kit for a reason. I love how it looks and how it feels in a travel situation. It stays off when I want it to, and it turns on when I wanted it. Based on my masturbation times and how long between charges while I was gone, I would say the battery lasts about four hours, which is really good for a travel toy.
This toy was sent to me with two mini wand attachments to use with it, which really changed the experience for me. The head of the wand on it’s own is lovely, but the two attachments added some variety, which I felt elevated this toy from an 8 to a 9.
The Noje W3 Wand is leaning against the sleeping bag, and the wand attachments are sitting beside it. They are all out of the box and the attachments are clean and white.
The first head was deemed The Hugger because it had two hard nubs that extended and it sort of hugs the clit. I enjoyed this attachment the most because it allowed me to use a lot of pressure, which I need to get off. I also loved how it felt on my clit. The dual heads made me feel surrounded. At first, it was a little shocking and it felt like my clit couldn’t get away. But after a minute, I found just the right angle to get off. It was a great orgasm.
The other head is extremely different. It was called The Flicker one side of this head has a thin piece of silicone sticking out that is roughly disk shaped. It shakes when the wand is on and creates a delightful flap that felt great for a tease. I used it to get warmed up and I could place it on my clit, hood or anywhere around my labia to help get the blood flowing. The other side that doesn’t have that flapping disc (which is the name of my new 90s nostalgia band by the way) has a ball of silicone the size of a marble. That little ball is the side I use for pressure. After I’m warmed up, I can jam that into my clit and get off. It doesn’t feel quite as good as The Hugger, but it’s still good.
All in all, this toy is really solid. I will continue to bring it on my travels, and I will continue to use it in canvas homes, truck stops, and many hotel rooms. I thoroughly enjoy having an elegant and simple wand to use when I’m away.
This toy was sent to me by the kind folx at SheVibe in exchange for a fair and honest review. At time of publishing, this toy retails for about $36 (USD). You can purchase in Sage (green), Rose (pink), or Wisteria (purple). The wand attachments can be purchased here for about $8 (USD) at time of publishing.

Indigo Tries the Pierre and Packer Pouch

For the Pierre: 10 out of 10
For the Packer Pouch: 4 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a nice 7&7 because the average score is 7. Not a bad drink, but not the best either. And only one of the ingredients is the issue. The other is gold.
These two items were sent to me by Betty’s Toybox. They are a great company who have lifted me up multiple times as a new blogger. If you’re interested in the pouch, you can buy it for $19 USD at time of publishing. If you’re interested in the Pierre, you can peruse four color choices ranging from Cashew to Chocolate. They are priced at $50 USD at time of publishing.
The New York Toy Collective Pierre and Packer Pouch sit on a small wooden table. The Pierre is roughly the color of a shelled cashew nut, and it is about 4 inches long. The Pierre also has testicles that are about 3 inches long and is modeled to look like an uncircumcised penis. Next to it is the packer pouch, which is plan black nylon with a New York Toy Collective logo on the bottom right corner.
It’s been a long time that I’ve wanted to try a packer. When I was with my last partner, I used socks occasionally and we would try out masculine terms during playtime. It felt right more often than I thought it would, considering how my gender fluctuates. Since those experiments, I have wanted a packer that felt more real and mindful of this purpose. I wanted it to be penis-shaped and the color of my skin (roughly). I wanted it to be used for that purpose so I wouldn’t feel like I had to fake it.
When I had the opportunity to ask for a packer from Betty’s Toybox and a packer pouch to match, I was so looking forward to having my own dick. And when the Pierre arrived, it was perfect.
Now, because of who I am as a person, I know the way to accurately measure how big someone’s penis is based on their hand. This assumes that the person in question is proportional. I learned this from a nurse, but it’s hard to describe through text. So if we ever meet in person, remind me to show to the dick length trick. Anyhow, through this trick, I’ve always known that had I been born with a penis, I would have one that was average length at most (about 5-6 inches) and with a wide diameter.
I have never once met a dick I didn’t like. Dicks are great no matter their size or width. Sometimes the people attached to them are less than favorable, but the dicks themselves are excellent. So my dick would be a little shorter and wider than the “average” dick, which makes me incredibly happy. I am pleased to know my body, even if it is hypothetical. As a result, I felt the Pierre and was immediately pleased by it. The length, the girth and the feel of it were all correct. It felt good in my hands.
The Pierre is pure silicone, with a soft shore. It’s modeled to look like a flaccid, uncircumcised penis with testicles at the base. Mine is in cashew color, which is the palest option. The penis length is 4.75″ and it’s width is about 1″. Because it is pure silicone, it can be sterilized through boiling or bleach/water mix. I haven’t worried too much about that with the Pierre because it’s only a soft packer, so it doesn’t get used except in a cotton housing.
In wear, the Pierre is very much like a small dream come true. The weight of it is wonderful, and I love how the size just peeks from between my hips. When I wear this with tight pants, it’s a definite bulge, but if I wear it with my usual baggy cargo pants, it becomes a little secretive. It’s something I remember when I walk in an unusual way, or sit and try to place my hands in my lap. I love both of these unique feelings, but more commonly, I choose the baggy pants because it’s less obtrusive in my small city (surrounded by conservatives).
With the Pierre being raved about, let me talk about the packer pouch. These are both items made by New York Toy Collective. I love the company because they never use words like “flesh-colored” and instead use foods to denote color. They also have a wide array of items for both trans folx as well as toys that are just plain fun to use. I also love their social media, which normalizes packing, including gender bending. It’s common for me to see short clips showing off how a particular dick looks in a skirt or short shorts. I thoroughly enjoy seeing folx like myself in their advertising and I look forward to seeing more.
So the packer pouch is far less expensive at $19 USD. It’s a simple and ingenious really. I thought “how could this work with every pair of underwear?” Well, it’s a simple nylon pouch with one edge of the opening longer than the other. In that longer side, there are strong magnets. This long edge can be folded over the top of underwear and they line up with magnets in the front of the pouch, which holds it in place.
So it does in fact work with every pair of underwear. However, the pouch is only about five inches long once put in place. This is where the pouches problems become apparent. As I placed it into my first trial underwear, I realized that five inches is not quite enough for me, though I’m uncertain if it is because my torso is long, if I’m too fat or if I just wear my underwear higher than most. Any of these could be the reason that this pouch didn’t work for me.
On a small wooden table sits the New York Toy Collective Packer Pouch with the Pierre inside. You can just see the outline of the Pierre's head and testicles, but the light doesn't reveal much more.
Here’s what happened: I would put the pouch on with my Pierre inside and I would begin my day’s work. After awhile, I would stop to use the restroom, and I would notice that the pouch had moved. One time, it almost fell into a toilet in a Staples and I just about had a heart attack. So I used a thinner underwear on my second trial. My men’s underwear is thick and cotton, so I thought the change would help the pouch stay in place. However, the same issue happened. Sometimes it was because of the magnets coming unattached, but often I would tug the pouch to sit somewhere more natural, and it would come undone.
In essence, there was no easy way for me to wear this pouch long term. I believe that someone smaller than me (either in length or width), will have an easier time wearing this pouch and using it for it’s intended purpose.
It was really hard for me to write this review, because I wanted to love both of these products so much. I wanted to wear this more days than not and have it feel as natural as the Pierre did in my hands. I put off writing it, trying it with different underwear, and new combinations of clothes. It just did not accomplish what I hoped it would.
So between these two products, the Pierre was a clear winner for me and a packer I will use whenever I can with other harnesses. However, the packer pouch will probably live in my underwear drawer, waiting to be used. It didn’t feel right to review them separately, because each other depended on the other for use. As a result, this review might be a bit longer than usual, but I hope that it is still useful for folx looking in this as an option.
These two items were sent to me by Betty’s Toybox. They are a great company who have lifted me up multiple times as a new blogger. If you’re interested in the pouch, you can buy it for $19 USD at time of publishing. If you’re interested in the Pierre, you can peruse four color choices ranging from Cashew to Chocolate. They are priced at $50 USD at time of publishing.
