10 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a Whiskey Sour. It has a very solid amount of bite, but you know to expect it.
This toy was sent to me by Creamed and Sugared in exchange for my honest review. If you would like to purchase it, you can do so here for about $60 (USD) at time of posting. If you would like to look at their other amazing work, please do so here!
The Creamed and Sugared Tippy Twister sits on an orange cloth in front of a decorated bowl. It is made out of dark wood, and you can see the wood grain in the light. It looks vaguely like a knife, with a hook carved into the pommel.
So the kind folks at Creamed and Sugared gave me two toys, which I had hinted at before. But there is a distinct reason I saved this review for second. That reason is because I love this toy oh so much. Please note that this review includes some talk of blood and fear play!
And I’ll be honest here. The Tippy Twister was not my first choice of toy from them. However, I do enjoy Creamed and Sugared so much that I probably would have accepted almost anything from them. It was sheer luck that I got the Twister. And when I held it for the fist time, I was immediately in love. The wood is so dark, and it feels amazing under my finger tips. Although, I will say that Taylor hated the feeling of this finish, so there are some differing opinions here. However, I find the smoothness of this toy perfect. I can still feel the wood grain, but it’s subtle. Unlike the Twister itself.
So what is this toy? It looks like a cross between a baton and a knife. It has a handle and “blade” gently suggested in the carving of it. This gives it the appearance of something that could be used as a dagger. The main point of this is to allow those who want to experiment with fear play have a step between no knife and sharp metal bladed weapon. However, because the folks are Creamed and Sugared are so clever, there is more than one use for this toy.
Personally, I’m such a realist that I wouldn’t want this toy for fear play. I would be brought out of the fantasy by the reality that the blade isn’t sharp, and I would not enjoy the scene because of it. However, I’m also the type of person who enjoys the word “Puppy” to be carved into their thigh/chest. So the fear play aspect of this toy is not meant for me. I really love that this toy is there for those who would be less comfortable with a real blade. As a very occasional switch, I will say that this would be perfect if I were to ever top with it. The shape does convey when I hold it, even if it doesn’t when it’s being used on me. Brains are weird, aren’t they?
So what are the other functions of this toy? Well, I handed it to a friend of mine and let him try it out on me. We had been planning to do a scene anyway, and it just happened to coincide with my receiving this toy. So I let the experiment run!
The very tip of the “blade” has two points, which is why this is called the Twister. These points are designed to be pushed into the skin and then the whole item rotated, creating a digging and tearing type of action. This was the aspect of this toy I was most excited to try. Those points are mean, and thanks to some strong arm and wrist work from my friend, I was torn up in no time. This raised the toy’s rating for me because I like toys that are mean, and this one is blood-worthy.
In addition to the tip of the blade, there is another point for the pommel of the blade. This looks a bit sturdier than the tips of the blade, but it’s not as sharp. So it’s great for some skin hooking/pulling and sensation play, but I wouldn’t expect it to break skin or leave marks.
The last function of this toy is the use as an impact toy. I may not have thought of it myself, if I’m being honest, but it was mentioned as a possible use, and the dom using it on me figured that out for himself. As an impact toy, it had a little bit more sting than I enjoy. I like batons as a general rule because they have a rounded imprint when they connect, which is more likely to be thuddy than something flat like a paddle. However, if the wood of a baton is light, there is way more sting, but in a line instead of a wide area. The wood of this toy is a bit too light for it to have thud, and so I wasn’t a huge fan of it as an impact toy. Of course, I take any hits that my dom wants to dish, but in general, I found this toy not up to my thirst for thud (which is my first album name, by the way).
The Tippy Twister is sitting on an ornate bowl with the tip facing the camera to emphasize the two points at the tip, and the rough, unfinished wood between the two points.The one problem that I have with this toy is that I would not trust it to be sanitized. The wood grain captures too much bacteria. The dom who used it called it a “one and done” because now this toy is only mine. It can’t be used for others. For a dom, that is a problem because they will likely work with more than one sub. For me, I am definitely okay with this because I will never use it on anyone else. I’m not really a dom, and the doms I play with don’t get to keep this because it’s mine. But, it’s a good thing to consider when looking for toys to purchase because it might be a deal breaker for you.
After having this toy for two months, I am happy to say that I am proud and delighted to own it. I find that it fulfills many needs, even if it falls short in some others. I have many paddles and impact type toys at my disposal. This is something completely different. In a way, this toy is the result of hedging bets, but it did so successfully. For that, it earns high marks from me.

Indigo Tries Temptasia Clitoris and Nipple Pump

Happy Holiday Season, Party People! This is the sixth 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?

1 out of 10
Pairs nicely with straight schnapps. It doesn’t really taste great, and it’s not really enough to do anything powerful. All in all, you’d be better with something, anything else.
This toy was sent to me by my friends at SheVibe! You can purchase it here for about $34 (USD) at time of posting.
The Temptasia Pump sits on a purple backdrop. It is a basic black air pump with a red hose leading to a clear plastic cup.
Okay, so I asked for this toy because I wanted to see how a clit pump would work with my testosterone. I was interested in seeing the effect of those two things together. So I planned to use this once or twice a week.
And…then it arrived.
The first thing I’ll say about this system is that the full name for it is the Temptasia Clitoris and Nipple Pleasure and Enhancement System. That’s a fancy fucking name for this…collection of items.  When I got the box, I could feel that the packaging was cheap. I hoped that this wasn’t indicative of what was inside. However, I opened the cardboard top, and I found myself looking at a cheap-looking piece of equipment in a simple plastic casing.
The main component of this toy is a large plastic trigger that connects to what I’m sure is supposed to be a basic air chamber. This is the main “pump” part of the toy. The trigger mechanism is crude, and the lever comes away from the main part in a somewhat awkward way that I’m sure is not design. It also has a random cap that comes off easily, with no obvious purpose. It is extraordinarily large for no reason, and it feels clunky in use.
Which leaves the rest of the components. The tube feels like actually good rubber, and it’s easy to figure out when end goes to the pump and when goes to the cylinders. That is unfortunately the last good thing I will say. I picked up the cylinders which are supposed to go over a nipple or clit and was immediately skeptical. They were so small, they barely fit over the pad of my thumb. There is no way these cylinders would cover my nipples, let alone my clit, which is already larger than it used to be. I scoffed at these puny things, but agreed with myself to at least try them. Somewhere. If they fit.
So I assembled the thing and I went to test it on myself. I held the cylinder to my chest and began to pump. Nothing happened. So I tried again on my forearm. It was more awkward, but I was able to see the seal and make sure it was being held. Still nothing. I pulled in help from my very intelligent best friend. We sat on the couch and made “pew pew” noises while holding it to our arms. Nothing happened every time.
I can’t tell you how disappointed I am by this toy. I was excited by a pump that has direct control from the user. It was inexpensive so I could recommend it to anyone. And as it turns out, it wasn’t inexpensive at all. It was just cheap all around. I couldn’t see how the pump would work for me if I could even get the thing to work. I’m quite frankly shocked they have the audacity to charge $34 for it.
To be honest, I really tried to extend this review. I want to have good toys because I want to be able to recommend a variety. But please, don’t buy this toy. Find another pump. It might actually fit your bits.

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 Sola Sync!

8 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a Cape Cod (vodka and cranberry). It is smooth, and a little sour. But it’s basic and easy to drink.
This toy was sent to my by my friends at Shevibe.com! It retails for about 123 USD at time of posting, and you can find it here!
A large box sits on a chair. The front of it opens out and reveals the Sola Sync. It is a purple wand with an angle in the handle. It has chrome trim and a small circular remote is beside it in the box.
The Sola Sync has been on my radar for almost a year now. I was desperate to try one when I saw them at Woodhull last year. I loved the way the handle curved and it looked like it would be amazing for someone who has arthritis or possibly carpel tunnel. I loved the color of purple it was, and the sleek lines.
So when I Shevibe offered it to me, I was delighted to accept. I love wand vibrators and I was thoroughly expecting this one to be powerful and easy to use. That angle was going to happen immediately like magic, and I was going to have so many orgasms.
When the Sync arrived, I was surprised buy how big it was. Even though I had handled it in person, the photos online made it seem so dainty and refined. When I pulled it out of the box, I was surprised that it was about the length and width of my forearm. I was even more excited about it because somehow, size equated to power in my brain. I was wrong on that count, however.
The Sync costs over $100, which all seems to go into the design and the box. When I did unbox this toy, I immediately threw away the packaging because it was just too much. I did not want all that clutter in my already crowded toy area. However, if this is the one wand vibe you own, that box would be extremely nice to keep the Sync in. This fact does not escape me, as I am aware of my reviewer status, and thus my reviewer bias. However, it does feel like a bit much for this toy.
Though I have some form of nerve damage in my wrists, which sometimes acts up around weird angles and weights, I do not have arthritis, or diagnosed carpel tunnel (though at one point, I thought that is what I had). As a result, I’m going to try and talk about this toy with these caveats in mind.
A purple box sits on a chair. On top is the Sola Sync, with a white charging cable, the remote and a white storage bag.You see, I love the angle and the sleek look of this toy, but it isn’t great for me. As I hinted above, the power of this toy is someone lack-luster. It is not buzzy in my opinion, but it isn’t a very powerful rumble. I am, however a power slut. So if you find that toys are too powerful for you or just right, this toy would be great for you. I really wanted to love using it, but it’s so weak that I need to jam it into my clit in order to orgasm. That requires me grabbing the top of the toy, and negates that whole cool handle thing. If I used the handle, I feel like the wand will break in half under my strength. So I am more careful with this than perhaps I need to be. One day, I hope to use a toy that is L-shaped and I just jam the short side into my clit and pull up on the long side for that sweet pressure I need. But alas, the Sync is not that dream toy.
Additionally, I found the remote to be unnecessary for me. I don’t understand why one would need the remote because the handle is so long. I personally used the remote once for testing and then never used it again. However, I realize that I may be discounting someone’s disability because I don’t have that perspective. So with that complaint made, I am glad that the remote exists for those who might need it.
Now, the charging port was another small complaint I had. The actual plug-in part is so long and thin, I’m afraid I’m going to break it every time I try to charge the thing. If this toy is built with someone who has wrist or hand issues, having a shorter or entirely different charging port would probably be a good idea. I also feel like I’m breaking the silicone skin every time I stick the plug in there because it’s so tight of a fit (euphemism intended).
The Sync charged in just under two hours for me, and it never ran out of juice, so it goes for at least four hours (estimating off my average wanking time and how long I had it while I was at home). This is a huge point in favor of this toy. This along with the very refreshing design, and the fancy box are what I feel makes the price tag so high.
Overall, I really like the sync for someone’s first wand, except for the very high price point. It’s not too powerful, but I feel like it has a lack of thought of certain aspects that are vital, especially when taking into account the shape of the toy and what it seems built for. If they made the motor more powerful (or perhaps a corded version)

Indigo Tries Migliori Silicone Lube!

9 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a gin martini. It’s fancy and elegant in name and design. You don’t need much for it to get the job done.
A glass bottle with a silver top sits on a knitted fabric. There is Migliori written on the bottle in a fancy font.
 
This product was sent to me by Peepshow Toys in exchange for a fair and honest review. If you are interested in this, please buy through this link, and I make some commission at no extra cost to you!
Ingredients:  Dimethiconol, Cyclimethicone, Dimethicone, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Vitamin D3, Vitamin B
I’m a little sick as I write this, and this will be short. Partly because it will be a little delirious, but also because it’s lube and my perspectives on lube don’t take more than 700 words on average.
This is the second lube that I’ve gotten the chance to review, and it is in fact the second through Peepshow. My first was the Butters Lube, which I use less and less, in favor of this new lube. I have experienced a lot of lube in my life, largely due to working at a sex shop for two months. Our samples were out of control, and we often were given samples as gifts by visiting companies. It became like a little Easter egg hunt in my life. Where is the lube today? To this day, I think I have some lube samples in my satchel, and I really do not know why.
Moving on to some specifics. Migliori comes with a fancy bag that has a velour type fabric. I spent a good 20 minutes playing with this bag, and I wasn’t even inebriated at the time, so that’s a perk which raises the rating right there. As it turns out, if you’re product stinks, but you put it in fun packaging, I will have a more favorable review of it. Oops?
When I opened it, my first thought was “Ah, butts, this is going to be hard to photograph…” The reason for this is that the top is chrome-style. In my photos, it looks brushed or frosted because I needed a way to get my face out of the photo. It was pretty amusing because my face showed up in the first photo so clearly, but it was a stupid shape because the top is conical. After about 20 minutes laughing my butt off, I found that if I breathed on the top, I had enough time to snap a few pictures, which I happily used in this post.
So now that I’ve talked way too much about the appearance of this lube, I’m sure you would like to know how it works. Well, the first thing I’ll say is that I do try to keep silicone lubes away from silicone toys. This limits how many situations I can use this lube in, because only a few of my toys are glass or stainless steel (which is just a damn travesty, tbh). Some silicone does not play well together, and it’s hard to tell which silicone will. As a result, my shop recommended only water-based lubricant with soft toys, and I follow that rule to be safe.
It’s hard to say a whole lot about how the lube works, honestly. It’s lube. It stays wet, and dries in a lovely powdery feel. It’s never stained my bed sheets. It tastes like the typical unscented lube. I use only one dot and then I’m good to go on butt stuff (or you know, whatever else).
What I do love is the dispensing. I hate reaching into any tub of lube, but this has a pump that makes my day so much easier. I can hold it directly close to my genitals or apply to the toy itself. Pumps make me so happy. It’s actually my favorite part of this lube. It occurs to me that I may be not the best at lube reviews because I’m not known to be extra sensitive, so I don’t offer a lot of perspective. But damn it, I do know how I like lube to get from it’s packaging to my parts.
In short, this lube is actually really satisfactory. It’s housing and packaging is undoubtedly my favorite part of the whole deal. Considering that I just spent about 600 words talking primarily about the bottle, bag and pump, I think it’s time for me to stop. I should clearly prevent myself from writing reviews while sick…
 

Indigo Tries the Funkit Swell

9 out of 10.
And I was heckin’ surprised about it.
A slightly opaque dildo with orange swirls is attached to the wall with a suction base. There are blinds in the background.
Pairs well with a Micky (what I call a Peach Schnapps with cranberry, after a friend). It’s fruity and a little sneaky, but really easy to handle.
Buy the Swell here! With customization!
So Kenton was having a sale one day, and I love this paddle I got from Funkit, so I said to myself “Let me try some roulette and get some mystery items.” Since it was a sale of slightly messed up toys, I put in some color preferences and a few days later, there were toys at my house! I received this in my request for orange toys and as I unwrapped it, I was a little sad.
This toy is so small. According to the website, it has about 5 3/8″ insertable length and it’s only about 1 3/8″ in diameter. The silicone is fairly firm, but still moves some when squeezed (I don’t know silicone numbers or what they mean). If I’m honest, I actually put off using this toy because I was convinced that it wouldn’t be exciting for me. I assumed that it would end up in the back of the dildo hutch and just…collect dust. And then…
A slightly opaque dildo with orange swirls sits on a teal sheet. There is a large ridge on the bottom of the dildo, and a small head to the dildo..
One day, when I was really behind on cleaning dildos, I ran out of things to try and I grabbed the Swell out of desperation. I put it in me, and I went to town as I normally do, expecting mediocre at best. I was very surprised when I came, and actually squirted using this dildo. I pulled it out. I touched it. I examined it closely. I examined the bed where a puddle was soaking into my towel and below (before I owned my Sheets of SF). It was real. This tiny, no-warm-up dildo actually made me squirt with almost no effort.
So what is happening with the Swell? When I met Kenton at Woodhull this year, he told me that the swell was an experiment just to see what the pouring process was. He didn’t expect much of it, like me. But the Swell comes with this wonderful…swell on the underside of the shaft that makes all the difference in this cock. That bit of extra pushes the head directly into my g-spot. It’s possible that I got really lucky, but this dildo fits me perfectly without warm-up.
As we all know, I am a geek for clever designs and I have a confession. I’m a huge fanboi for Kenton because of the base of his toys. They are effective suction cups, but the edges fold in such a way that it makes it easy for my hands to hold, and I even have some joint issues! The orientation of the folds is perfect every time, and I will never stop praising this design genius. I also got a butt toy (which I will be reviewing as well). Even though I own quite a few crescent plugs, Kenton’s base is without a doubt the most comfortable that’s ever gone between my cheeks. Seriously, even better than the Njoy Pure Plugs. The man is a genius. (OH MY GOD INDIGO, STOP. YOU’RE MAKING PEOPLE UNCOMFORTABLE.)
A hand holds a dildo so the base is clearly visible. There are two folds for easy grip on the base and it's stamped with the words "funkit."
Look, all geeking out aside, I imagine for those new to toys, this dildo would be a good fit. It’s a very manageable size, and it’s an easy to clean material. It can softly touch the g-spot and allow for some exploration of that, but it doesn’t have to (just flip it over)! The handle is very comfortable to hold and use, and it’s also a suction cup, so you can use it like any other dildo you might want to stick to a wall. Pro tip: And if you’re a pro, I would guess this is a great dildo for double penetration exploring. (Puns always intended.)
Essentially, I wasn’t sold on this funky toy (pun intended), but when I tried it, I thought it was real swell (pun intended). The only thing that sucked was the suction base (omg stop). After I squirted, I was like “Orange you glad you tried it?” (INDI-GO HOME.) I’m regularly folding this into my masturbation (F**K OFF INDIGO).
Okay, I’m done now. #sorrynotsorry

Indigo Tries Sinful Pleasure!

10 out of 10
Pairs well with a Dirty Shirley. It’s fun, fruity and delightful to drink.
The rainbow glass dildo sits horizontally on a teal bedspread.
My affiliates don’t carry it but you can find it here!
So as we all know, I love rainbows and I love glass. So when I was working at a sex toy retailer, and this fine piece of glass walked by, I immediately knew it was coming home with me. Of course, I tried to fight it. After all, I can’t buy everything that’s rainbow. OH WAIT YES I CAN AND I WILL.
SO let’s get into this piece. I had it before I was a reviewer, so I’ll have to tell you about the packaging without visual aid. It was fairly simple; laid in a plastic piece formed to its shape. That was all placed into a box and it fit cleanly. There were no extra frills or manuals or anything except what was on the box. So I assume that you’re supposed to open it and just stick it somewhere.

Indigo's hand holding a glass dildo. It's inner ribbons are blue and red , and the outer layer is rainbow-shined. It's got a bulb on one end that's about 1.5
A bonus peek of my prune-y dildo-wash hand!

I’ll start with the obvious. This piece is SO pretty. When I got it, I spent a lot of time just twisting it in the light and watching the rainbow dance. It was so much fun. If I’m honest, I still do that occasionally. As for glass integrity, this piece is awesome. I have hit this piece on wood floors, bathtub bottoms and even my Pure Wand. Never once has it chipped or even scratched. Whatever else I have to say, this company is amazing for material integrity.
I have my biases for glass toys, as we well know, and I will admit, this combination of rainbows and glass may or may not affect how much I love this toy. It’s a beautiful work of art that I frequently show off as the flashiest piece I own. It’s easy to clean (just soap and water). But does it really feel as good as others?
The short answer is absolutely. My g-spot really loves this toy, and I suspect it has everything to do with that shape, which is alarmingly perfect. The shaft of this toy is about 1″ in diameter, maybe a little less. But that head is so bulbous in comparison. It’s the perfect shape and angle to just reach in and grab my g-spot. The bulb near the bottom makes a really great stopping point. It’s not extra long, but it’s the perfect length. Occasionally, I go into challenge mode and take that extra bulb too, but it doesn’t add anything to the experience, so why bother?
I’m particularly happy with how this toy is shaped and smooth. I do produce a lot of natural lubricant, and so I’m always delighted to use this toy because I can uaully just pop it in and go without having to warm up or struggle. It’s something that I can use right after intercourse just give myself that last nudge, or I can use it before intercourse as a warm-up. This helps me partner get me off a little easier.
A rainbow glass dildo sits with one end really close to the camera.
This toy is something that I equate with the Pure Wand in one way: I know exactly how long it will take to get off and I know exactly what kind of orgasm I have. There are no surprises or new gimmicks with this toy. If I’m honest, I see that it’s not particularly innovative. But I love this toy so god damn much.
This toy was sort of an impulse buy for me. I saw rainbow and glass all in one package and I said “This is mine, it was made for me, and I’m taking it home.” It has become a universal staple in my routines, which I wasn’t expecting. However, it’s great introduction to glass, and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Indigo Tries the Satisfyer Pro 2

6 out of 10
Pairs well with a Tequini (tequila martini). It has elements of something good, but is so strong, you should only have it in small bits.
My friends at Betty’s Toybox sent me this for a fair and honest review. Buy it from them here! It retails for about $70-90.
I have heard a lot about this style of vibrator, and no one seems to really agree with anyone else on it. Some folks love the way it can force an orgasm, and some think it’s very painful. Needless to say, I think this style is different than what many folks are used to, and I’m fairly certain that you won’t know if you like it until you try it.
With all that said, I feel like I CAN say that if you like a lot of direct clitoral stimulation, this toy is probably a safe bet. But when I say a LOT, I mean less of pressure and tickling and more enjoyment of pulling, or even nibbling if you’ve gone that far. Essentially, I think that if you’re new to clitoral play, this is NOT a safe bet for you. Start with something that’s gentler.

A toy that is copper in color with a white nozzle rests in a plastic cradle. A box sits next to it.
The box is well-designed and classy. I am a little mad about how happy it made me.

The Pro 2 arrives in a really simple plastic cradle in a box. There is a white cord to the side. That cord is USB on one side, and a magnetic charger compatible with the Satisfyer on the other side. It’s advised to fully charge the Satisfyer (about 4 hours) before the first use. And those magnetic chargers are so flipping cool. I am a sucker for things that connect easy. So far, I have had the best luck with the magnetic chargers, and I look forward to using them every time. (JESUS INDIGO, STOP TALKING ABOUT THE CHARGER YOU DORK. [Not sorry.])
When I turned on the Satisfyer for the first time, I was a little afraid of the noise it made. It sounds a little like a raptor crooning. I made several jokes about it being a “clever girl” and applied it to my genitals. And this is where my jokes with the satisfyer ended. When it turns on, it starts at the lowest setting and if I put it against my finger, I can clearly feel the suction. I was really excited to find my clit with it and feel that suction. But…nothing really happened.  So then I had to press the other button, which is a different hard button, but under the same soft piece of silicone as the power button for whatever reason. It looks like a shitty volume button, and no, they aren’t clearly labeled. But I digress.
I said “fuck it, I’ll turn the thing up!” And I turned it up a notch at a time, cycling through the many different power settings, and this is where the story gets a little weird. The anatomy of my vulva isn’t so unusual to my knowledge. I might have some fuller labia than others, but my clit is fairly normal, despite my hormone imbalance. My point is this: The Pro 2 hurts me. And not in a fun way, even. I mean, I called it a raptor, but I didn’t think it would actually hurt!
The Pro 2 placed against me on the lowest setting feels like a tickle and I laugh at it. If I press it harder (because I LOVE pressure), it still feels so minimal. But when I turn it up, the suction feels like it doesn’t change. What does get turned up is the vibration, and my clit is surrounded by this circle of high vibrations. And it hurts. It hurts coming from the person who regular mashes their clit into pulp while masturbating. This hurts from the person who (sometimes) shoves a wand right on there with FORCE and LIKES IT.
But that’s not all. It feels like the Pro 2 puts all it’s emphasis on the vibration. Here’s this really great sucking sensation, why am I just putting a ring vibrator on my clit? That’s not creative. What’s more, it’s so pinpoint that it’s not great for me. When you pair these things with the fact that Satisfyer as a company claims that it’s products are “The Best Toy of the Year” etc., I get a little salty. Every toy company says this. When you take the one cool thing you could have and then downplay for something as overused as vibration, I get frustrated.
However, I do think the toy is a nice shape, especially compared to the older models I’ve seen. So far, I haven’t had any wrist pain from using it. It has a lot to do with that bulbous handle. So I suppose they have that going for them?
Basically, I’m not enRAPTORed by this product. In all honesty, this toy does get me off. But I have to somehow find this perfect balance of enough vibration to feel it and not too much (which causes pain). If I get too much, I sit in bed crying “Shoot her! Shoot her!” (More Jurassic Park references.) But if I get too little, I can’t really orgasm from it. The buttons are not very intuitive, but the manual doesn’t really help. For this much money, I expect some sort of guidance at least when it comes to using the toy, and I also expect it to not make wild claims and then focus on vibrations.
They can keep the raptor noises though. Those are fun.

Indigo Tries the Laid D.1 Silicone

8 out of 10
Would recommend if you don’t have arthritis and like g-spot drag.
Pairs well with Margaritas. Sort of all-around nice, but if you don’t like the main feature, ends badly.
So I used a gift card and a discount code to acquire this dildo. Of course I wanted the stone one, but I don’t have a spare $100, so I didn’t spring for it. Instead, I found the silicone version of this toy and I said “It’s the same shape, so what’s the difference?” Having never tried the stone one, I can’t say 100%, but I’m like 80% sure that this silicone made all the difference for me.
As I said, there was a discount code and a gift card to acquire this toy. As a result, I ended up spending a really low amount for this toy. I bought it as a way of saying “It’s really new, but since it was inexpensive (for me), I might not like it and that’s okay.” Almost more of a novelty because there is a stone version of it. (It’s also the shape of the we-vibe Rave, and I really wanna try that too.) What I didn’t expect was for it to become a staple in my bedroom.
The D.1 can be acquired in Black, Sky Blue or Pink (because of course). I chose the blue because I didn’t own enough blue things yet, and I wanted to try a new color. Additionally, as I mentioned above, it can be found in stone, and god it’s pretty. They come shipped in a fancy box with a beautiful foam form to hold them in place. The box can be used as storage so long as it’s clean. It seems really durable, so I would opt for that (if I didn’t have a storage system already). However the box not subtle, so please be aware of that if this is your plan.

When I got it in the mail, I opened this very fine packaging and immediately touched it. It felt so soft on my hands. I thought for sure that it would be like silk going in. Hoooooo boy, was I super wrong. Everyone must know, there is SO much drag on this silicone. I said the silicone feels soft, but not silky. It’s also not squishy. Like at all. Think about that softness as a texture and less as a…state of being? It’s like shoving a towel up there, and that’s not necessarily a pleasant feeling. So break out the lube (you’ll need a lot, like a whole sample size).
However, I will say this: after I used it a couple of times, that drag started to feel really good. There’s a big moment for me when a toy goes from being a toy to being an interaction. When I use something like The Pure Wand, I know exactly what I’m getting, and I know I’m getting it fast. It’s almost mechanical. This toy is different. It’s firm enough to snap my g-spot awake, but that drag is what really sets it apart. It’s like a really firm fingering, instead of using a toy.
My boyfriend can attest to the fact that I was angry when I used this dildo. My exact words were “IT’S SO CHEAP. WHY IS IT SO GOOD?” Granted, the first couple of times, I was so horny that almost anything would have worked. However, this dildo continues to be good. That asymmetry is so wonderful for me, and that drag is so welcome to me because of it’s unique g-feel. (Ugh, I hate that, I’ll never use it again, I promise.)
I watched a video of “How to Use the D.1” where they used a twisting corkscrew motion instead of a thrusting one. This is the downside of the D.1. That motion makes my wrist hurt so much, I never use it. Tried it once and I was like, “Nope. No time for that. Never again.” So…don’t do that if you have wrists that are anything expect peak condition. Use this to thrust and change angles as you please, but it’s a little hard to do even that, thanks to the handle shape.
The D.1 is designed so you can use both sides of it. I’m not sure why you’d ever want to use the handle, as it seems to offer no real shape or stimulation, but I’m not judging if you do. I just think there are cheaper simple dildos out there. Because the handle is designed to be insertable, what really happens is that there is no real handle. Even thrusting with this thing is a chore because getting a grip is so hard. Alas, I’m still in search of a really perfect handle for my insertables.
Over all, I think this dildo feels great, but be prepared to use a lot of lube. Additionally, if you have any type of wrist problem, you may want to skip this dildo because it’s unique, but not worth the aggravation of existing conditions. It may very well cause a condition. i’m not sure, because I’m not an orthopedist!
