Indigo Tries The Realm by Blush

10 out of 10

Pairs nicely with a nice Mead. It’s sweet and it is amazing to look at. It also comes with a very specific type of feeling. Period.

The Realm handle is attached to the Draken attachment. It looks like a sword with a golden hilt, and the "blade" section is a navy blue dildo with a lot of bumps and ridges. They sit on a rock with a realistic attachment next to them. In the rock is a fake sword, which mimics the idea of the Sword in the Stone.

This toy was sent to me very kindly by my friends at Shevibe. You can find the handle here, the dildo attachments in Draken, 7 inches, 7.5 inches, and 8 inches.

My dearest readers. Never has there been a toy that is so suited to my aesthetic so perfectly. This toy (or set of toys) is in the shape of a dildo sword. You heard me right, it is in fact a sword that is a dildo. It’s perfect for Dungeons and Dragons hi-jinks. It’s made for murder in the Shakespearean sense. It is a hilarious gag to share with my renaissance friends.

As soon as the release for the Realm series was announced, I jumped on the opportunity. I tweeted loudly about it, and it paid off. (Perhaps the pen isn’t mightier than the sword, but it is at least as mighty.) About a month before finals, I was sent this toy as a special offer from the amazing folks at Shevibe. I was so excited for this toy that I brought it out the next time my partner was over. I showed it off with a lot of enthusiasm. We laughed about it, and made strong plans to use it in the very near future.

Then, the semester took a left turn. My life became hectic. My relationship became strained. I would look at these toys, and I would sigh, wishing I had the energy to test them. I would feel guilty about the testing going so slowly. I would glance over the nooks an crannies, and then move to the next toy. It would be a hassle to clean. It wouldn’t be worth getting out the two items (dildo and handle).

So this beautiful, amazing sword sat in the corner of my room, glaring at me, making me feel guilty. I kept telling myself to test it before I went on the road. I knew it would be even more work when I was living in my car, or in a tent. Alas, even my own guilt trip did nothing to move along the testing, and suddenly, it was time to leave. I gathered the handle and attachable dildos to bring along. I was fairly convinced I would have a hard time using them.

Reader, I am glad to say I was wrong. Within 72 hours of leaving home, I was in the middle of a threesome. I didn’t bring so many dildos to choose from, and this one featured a handle, so I decided that someone else would get to have the inaugural use of this toy. Thanks to that decision, it really became clear to me why this toy is incredibly useful, as well as visually striking. I began to use this on one of the folks involved. The second-person use, and the giant handle meant that there was plenty of thrusting leverage on another person. Not only was thrusting easier in general, but it provided several angles for my arm to sit at so I could have approached this from a few angles.

It was about the 10 minute mark that I realized my arm was going a little numb. The repetitive motion of fucking someone for a solid 10 minutes caught up with me. I switched hands for awhile. It was a little harder to get the right angles with my non-dominant left hand. But it has more strength, so I could keep the motion going for a longer time. I have rarely had so much fun fucking someone, I have to be honest. After pulling the sword from the hoe (instead of the stone, get it?), I was delighted to have a new favorite sex party toy.

The handle for this dildo sword is made out of a plastic that fits the look of a sword hilt perfectly. The dildos are separate pieces made from silicone. There are three options for realistic dildos (7 inches, 7.5 inches and 8 inches), if that is what you want. However, there is also one option for a dragon-style (read: non-realistic) dildo, called the Draken. I of course opted for the dragon one immediately (and then chose between the realistic ones based on size). I found that the Draken matched the aesthetic of the hilt in a way the realistic dildos did not. Don’t get me wrong. The realistic options fit well on the hilt, and provide something really great. But for me, there is something jarring about a dick just…attached to a golden hilt. Besides, I find the Draken to be incredibly fun both as a concept and as a toy. It’s my usual choice of dildo to use with the handle, but I like having the realistic one to choose when I need something visually stimulating to fuck with.

These dildo options (or dildoptions, if you will) attach to the sword through some patented vac-u-lock magic. In fact, the attachments are so strong, they recommend using lube or corn starch in the attachment to ensure they come apart. Reader, please listen to this recommendation. I did not make the mistake of ignoring this. However, I have used this connection with lube, I still have to pull a good bit before detaching the dildo from the hilt. I can’t imagine what it would be like without the lube.

Since my first use of this toy was with someone else, I have to admit there was something lost when I used it on myself. There just isn’t that same power, that angle, that view when you’re using this toy on yourself. Since I’m fat and my torso isn’t as flexible as my hips, it was hard to see the sword in all it’s glory during masturbation. Basically, it loses some of it’s effect in the translation to masturbation.

However, what visual effect is lost gets made up for by the amazing feel of Draken. We all know I’m love a good texture. However, something like the textured silicone, which is paired with a significant amount of texture in the mold itself? What a beautiful combination. I used this toy for no more than four minutes before having an amazing orgasm. On top of that, I was so turned on by the texture, I immediately turned around and used it again. I have a feeling that I probably could have kept that up for a long time. However, the rain was letting up, which meant the sound cover in my tent was no longer available, so I stopped. Instead, I used the realistic dildo for a bit. It was good, but felt a little plain for me. I don’t really know what else to write about the realistic one I have (which is the 7.5″ version), so I’ll probably just leave it there.

The Realm collection sits on the same rock with the sword "stuck" in it. The light makes it look magical. They happen to be sitting so that the realistic attachment can be viewed a little easier.So the question I wanted to answer the most about this toy is “Does the handle help the angle for masturbation?” Also phrased as “Would this toy be a good option for someone with say, arthritis?” I do have some wrist issues (which by and large get ignored because I live on my computer and often use sex toys, so whatever). However, I couldn’t say with 100% certainty either way on this question. In some ways, having the extra length was helpful for me. I had a bit more to grab on to. However, since that length is straight out (not curved up), I wouldn’t say the handle saves my wrists from strain entirely. Instead, I hold the hilt and that extra bit gives me some minor amount of leverage which makes it easier to thrust. So I suppose the answer is yes, but not in the way you think.

The last note that I have to make is a bit of a downside. Wow, there are a lot of nooks and crannies in this toy. Be prepared to sacrifice a toothbrush to two just to clean this bad by. The realistic ones dildo attachments aren’t so bad, but the Draken really stubbornly holds on to that vaginal fluid. Additionally, if you are using this on someone who squirts, the details in the handle will likely hold some fluids as well. It took multiple washes and a detailed eye to get everything off of handle and attachment.

In all honesty, I absolutely love this toy. I plan on using it often for the visual effect of it. However, masturbation isn’t the number one use I would choose for this toy. It really is something I’ll bring out for my partners to use on me, and for play parties, where I get to witness it’s use from a third (or at least second) person perspective.

This toy was sent to me very kindly by my friends at Shevibe. You can find the handle here, the dildo attachments in Draken, 7 inches, 7.5 inches, and 8 inches.

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 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.

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 Real Nude Helio!

7 out of 10
Pairs well with a Schnapps mixed drink. It’s pretty tasty, and I would even say easy. But it’s really too soft for me.
I was sent this toy by Shevibe in exchange for a fair and honest review. Consider purchasing it here in Indigo (the best color) or Violet (also good I guess)!
A dildo sits in a plastic blister case. It is indigo in color with a bulbous head, and a suction cup base.
So when Shevibe offered this toy, I was originally not enthused, but I absolutely had to have this beautiful color because it’s my name, and I need everything to be about me. As soon as it arrived, I needed to take as many pictures as possible because I absolutely love this color. It’s by far one of my prettiest dildos in terms of sheer color. (Can you tell I’m a Leo???)
You eat with your eyes first, they say. And though that’s not really true for me, I will admit that I do fuck with my eyes first. Wait, no. That’s creepy.
What I mean is that aesthetics are important. I believe this is true for most people. That’s why there are such strong preferences regarding phallic or non-phallic insertables. This dildo is not too whimsical that I feel it’s pandering to me. It’s also not realistic. I think I would describe this as a very classy shape. It’s not assuming one way or another. It’s not too big, but it’s big enough to be felt. At 6 insertable inches, it comes in very average as far as length goes. Attainable, but not puny. It’s also a solid 1.5″ at it’s widest point.
Now, I want to point out that a lot of people have some issues with 1.5″ diameter, but you should not fear this dildo for that. Blush claims that this dildo is dual density, and I can confirm. There is a delightfully squishy outside to this dildo. My issue it the firm inner core. I feel that it is firmer, but it doesn’t accomplish what I need a firm core to accomplish. When I think of dual density, I think of products like Tantus or Vixen, where the flexibility isn’t noticeable. An arc at best bend. With the Helio, I can literally touch the base of the dildo with the head. I know a lot of people who would love the give and squish of this dildo, but it just frustrates me, to be honest.
And Indigo version of the Nude Helio sits on a Blush novelties bag. The dildo is thin with a large head. It has a large suction cup base.
Inserting the Helio is a pain because any amount of resistance will cause it to bend, which makes it difficult to thrust with any kind of force. Additionally, when I finally have it lubed and inserted, any thrusting at all will often cause it to bend in my vagina. Though this doesn’t feel bad, I don’t consider it a good thing either.
Now, there are good things about the silicone density. For one thing, this toy is the least threatening thing to ever encounter my cervix. I feel like in order to actually hurt myself with this, I would have to attach some kind of spike. Or possibly attempting to stick it into the wrong orifice entirely. Although if you have any luck shoving this in your nose, good job I guess?
Basically, this dildo feels like a beginner dildo. As we know, I’m no beginner. So this won’t be one I use very often. However, I see that there is a huge market for this. I would even say there is a need for this dildo. Something that is soft and easy to use would be helpful to folx who are new, or even have some physical trauma. Additionally, this dildo is a really great toy in the traditional sense of toy. I highly recommend sticking to the wall and just batting it around. When you’re impaired in any way (even just lacking sleep), it’s a great game.
