Pairs nicely with a classic martini. It is the drink of flirts. Shaken, not stirred, my friends.
This toy was sent to me by the kind folks at SheVibe! You can purchase this particular scent, which is listed as Pomegranate, Fig, Coconut and Plumeria for about $14 (USD) at time of posting. Or peruse their other scents, which include Passionfruit and Guava, or Vanilla, Sugar and Sweetpea.

As a student of psychology, specifically focusing on relationships, I have been interested in pheromones before. Science focuses on pheromones in the communication of insects and other types of creatures because they are the primary language for them. Humans, as we know, depend less on pheromones and more on spoken and written language to communicate. In fact, it was thought that our olfactory cortices could not pick up on pheromones at all because they were so small. However, if pheromones can be detected, then they most likely do play a part in dating and relationships.
There’s scientific evidence each way. Since I am primarily a scholar, I looked to the research. I found that girls who lived with step-fathers were more like to start puberty at earlier ages. This may tie into the idea that someone who is eligible as a mate being around them is providing the types pheromones which signal a close mate. As a result, their bodies are stimulating the appropriate measures to become eligible mates themselves. There’s evidence that women who live around each other are likely to sync up their menstrual cycles. And there is evidence that placing pheromones related to sexual arousal in a setting makes it more likely for those in that setting to engage in sexual behaviors. However, when those same pheromones are placed directly onto the subjects, they do not stimulate sexual behavior. There’s also evidence to to support the idea that those with uteri are most sensitive to pheromones when they are ovulating. This is believed to be a method by which they can discern the best mates.
So what does all this mean? Well, to sum up, it’s likely that humans secret pheromones and that those pheromones affect the responsive behavior of others. However, it’s easy to override pheromones, so you don’t want them directly on your skin. You want them near you (such as a clay necklace smeared with the appropriate oils). Additionally, there has been limited research on pheromones and dating. We can determine the sex of someone based on their smell (though there has been no research around this with transgender individuals). Cis women are more likely to find the smell of a cis man attractive if his face is symmetrical.
So when it comes to bottling and selling pheromones, how is it possible to have them help you catch someone’s eye?
Well the short answer is that they can’t. But the long answer is a bit more complicated than that. When humans use pheromones, we aren’t sure what our brains search for. It’s still hard to parse out all the signals that pheromones can send. And when we can, there has been evidence that we search for scents that are least like our own. This may help us diversify the genetics of offspring. So when you’re looking to attract a potential mate, you want to smell as different from them as possible. That means that in order to have the best chance, we have to find the pheromones we do excrete and then add new ones that aren’t already on that list. But in addition, we can’t excrete pheromones that signal certain things. For example, excreting pheromones that are associated with pregnancy, or sexually dormant periods are not likely to attract a mate.
In essence, this spray, and the “science” behind it doesn’t work. There are no specific pheromones listed on the bottle, so it’s impossible to tell. Even if I knew what pheromones were present on me, I wouldn’t know if this added to them or just doubled up on one I already had. The product page describes the pheromones as “gender friendly” which may mean they just use the sexual arousal pheromone. However, that pheromone is often non-effective in non-sexual contexts, and almost completely ineffective for cis women on hormonal birth control.
So I tried it a couple of ways anyway, just to see what happened. I actually like the scent, which is listed as Pomegranate, Fig, Coconut and Plumeria. Fig and pomegranate are some of my favorite scents, but it does feel like a lot is happening in this scent palate. I could have used maybe one or two less scent profiles. However, I do enjoy it enough to use it. A few people I met really did not like the scent of it. I’ll never know if it was the pheromones or the scent itself. But I’ll go ahead and bet on the scent.
I did notice that after a while, my own scent changes. It never occurred to me that I would also react to the artificial pheromones I wore, but it does attest to there being some kind of pheromone involved. My own odor changes just a little bit, and I haven’t figured out if it’s a specific type of response or not. I’m one of a few people who would notice that because my sense of smell is so strong. I also don’t notice any other reactions, such as heightened libido, so the reaction is completely physiological and not strong.
When testing, I originally placed it directly on my skin with the idea that it would permeate like traditional perfume oil. I didn’t know then that my own pheromones would negate it (as the scientific evidence shows it might). Nothing really happened, and I didn’t notice any reactions from others. After a small bit of research, I saw a study that found placing pheromones on the chest of a cis woman did not illicit reactions from her or her partner. But when it was on a necklace she wore, it did illicit a reaction (though the effect was not strong).
So I tried it on my clothes like one would normally use a body mist. I have to be honest, I did feel like more people noticed me. I felt like I was turning heads a bit more and I was a little more confident. However, I can’t say if this is true or not. It may have honestly been due to a placebo effect. It may have been because when I used this, I was often going out to an event and therefore, I put more effort into my clothes than usual. It may have all been in my head, and I only imagined people staring because I wanted to. I also have to be aware that I was growing a beard during my testing of this, so maybe I was paranoid people were staring because of that.
Overall, I don’t dislike this product. I can’t say with certainty that it doesn’t work, or that it does work. The research around pheromones is still sparse enough for me to doubt that there’s solid science. But if it helps me feel more confident even by coincidence, I’ll keep wearing it.

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 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 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 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 the Cloud 9 Deluxe Enema Douche

6 out of 10
Pairs will with a Gin Fizz. It certainly is an experience and you’re not quite sure you want the end product. (Is that a raw egg?)
This kit was sent to me by the lovely folks at SheVibe in exchange for my fair and honest review. You can purchase it here!
The CloudFresh Anal Deluxe Douche sits on an orange scarf, leaning against a blue wall. It's a purple round bulb, with one flat side, and there are three nozzles in the package , which are all black.
It’s not a secret that I really love butt stuff. I wrote a whole delightful post about it, and I rave about it on Twitter a lot. I have always liked the idea of butt stuff, and I done butt stuff with my partners since I’ve had partners. In the shower, I often finger myself and I thoroughly enjoy that pleasure without orgasm. It’s just a fun way to connect with my body.
So one day when my partner was worried about my butt not being “clean” and getting “some mess on his dick,” I calmly reminded him that this is why you wear a condom for butt stuff. I also reminded him that if he thinks my body is gross, he can leave. I will admit that scat is not my personal kink, but I will not tolerate anyone who freaks out at bodily functions. There’s a difference between shaming and simply saying “it doesn’t turn me on.”
However, I did decide that I wanted an enema kit for my own. Not only would it make butt play easier and more fun, but I would also worry about my partners’ reactions less. So I requested The Cloud 9 Deluxe Enema Douche from the kind folks at Shevibe, and I eagerly awaited my enema kit in the mail. I was over the moon to receive it and unwrap it. But when I did, I found out that I was intimidated by it. What would happen when I used it? What would it feel like? What if the water was too cold? Too hot?
First, let me tell you about this product. Then I will launch into a TMI story about my first self-given enema. I’ll warn you before it starts.
I opened this kit and was immediately struck by the smell. The plastic smells were strong and weird. I would expect this from a PVC product (which is what the bulb is). I will probably have to replace this kit eventually because it cannot be fully sanitized, but because it’s only being used anally, I have a bit more time before that. This is a very bottom-heavy toy so it won’t fall over easily and the flat base is an excellent feature. There are three nozzles, each with their own shape and size. Each one screws in easily and they are fairly water-tight around the seam. Personally, the shortest nozzle worked well for me, specifically because I wasn’t warmed up. I later used the largest (widest) one in and that worked fine, but seemed like over-kill.
A close up of two of the nozzles. Both are black plastic. There are some specifications on the side, which include discussion of the flat base, a one-year warranty and a reminder to clean before and after use.The product itself is exactly as advertised. It doesn’t have a lot of bells, whistles or explanation, but it works well for me and it only costs about $20 (USD) at time of posting. I’m quite fond of this little kit and I don’t regret getting it. If that’s all you wanted to know about this enema kit, stop here. But if you’re curious about enemas and specifically my first time using one, read on.
I want to give folks a warning for a lot of TMI here, specifically around some butt stuff and poop. I’m going into the details of my first enema so that you might feel a little less awkward about yours.
It started with a shower, which seemed like the best place, nice and clean, etc. I figured if any mess happened, it would be easy to clean and I could move on. Well that was sort of true. Only I needed to get the head of the kit into me. Past my rather large cheeks (which like to touch) and into my anus. So I stopped the shower and got out and grabbed a bit of lube. I put it on my anus and finally got the enema in. Great. I squeezed some water into my colon and it felt WEIRD. Let me tell you, there was some air in there (you should maybe squeeze that out before insertion).
But I did okay on the temperature because the water felt like nothing. In fact, I pulled it out to make sure it was working properly. Well, it definitely was. I immediately felt like I had to poop. So I stopped my shower and sat down. There was no poop, just water. But I couldn’t tell because there are no other nerves to tell me WHAT is passing. Just WHEN it’s passing. So I finished passing the gas and water and I hopped into the shower again because I’m paranoid. My roommates were thoroughly confused by this, but they know better than to ask questions.
Once I felt like I was “empty” and there was nothing left to do, I hopped out and dried off. I then played with toys for about an hour because my butt was so clean and ready for play. I enjoyed some dildos, and some butt plugs. I even used my lovely unicorn horn to stretch it. I’m playing with a secret goal to get Double Fisted, so I’m real excited for that anal training.
In short, I was extremely intimidated by my first enema, but now I consider myself a pro at them. It’s a nice way to clean your tush, and this kit is a great price, and easy to use!

Indigo Tries the Sportsheets Divine Diva

8 out of 10
Pairs well with a Toasted Almond. It’s got a good base flavor, with a little added cream, and it’s plain delicious.
This was sent to me by my friends at Shevibe.com in exchange for a fair and honest review! You can purchase it here!
The box for the Sportsheets Divine Diva Harness. It's got a picture of a thinner torso with the harness on. The harness is black with a large triangle-shaped pad in the front, behind the O ring. The O ring is held in place with brass hardware in nylon straps. Behind this torso is another torso from behind with the harness on. It shows a larger pad for the small of the back.
So when I started reviewing for Shevibe, this was my first choice. I had heard some excellent reviews of Sportsheets in the past, and I desperately needed a harness because I had a partner that needed my cock in a major way. And when it showed up, I had to struggle to restrain myself from tearing open the box and put it on before I took pictures of the packaging. Divine Diva indeed.
And when I finally had a partner over, the need to use it was more immediate. So I took a few pictures of the box and I pulled it out. My first impression? I have a mass of straps and some cushions. Oh look, here’s an O ring!
I will admit to having some extremely silly moments in my life. I was once bested by a microwave. It was one of the simple ones too. I just completely forgot how they worked, but I’m not going into details about what happened. Just that an adult did have to come help me cook my cup-a-noodles. I was 19 at the time. However, when I pulled out this harness, I was really confused. What on earth possessed humans to think this was a good thing? It didn’t look like a crotch or underwear at all.
Well, it turns out that once it was all out of the box and laid out, I was looking at it backwards. And once I got it laid down, I understood perfectly. The microwave bested me, but this mass of fiber art would not! It turns out all those straps are extra adjustable and really, it slips on easily. For my purposes, I just put it on right over a thong (you’re welcome for that image). It was really easy for me to adjust all the straps and they were all within my reach. So while I was fixing it, my partner could watch and that was wonderful to feel.
The straps are nylon, so they slip easily. It didn’t take too long to adjust thanks to that. Although, this does mean it loosens easily, and I was afraid of it going slack on me. Perhaps I should tie a few knots in the straps for extended wear. However, with the artificial fibers, there is little to no chance of staining and there’s very little on this harness that could not be washed. I would recommend being careful about washing machines because of the brass hardware, though. I got a little bit of a mess on one strap, and it came clean with a little soap, which I am grateful for.
The Sportsheets Devine Diva sits on a blue bed spread. It has black nylon straps linking two triangle pads linked. There are black bolts holding straps, which link into an o ring.
So I wanted this specific harness because it was designed for larger folx. I’ve never been a fan of the word Diva to describe plus sizes, and that seems to have permeated the entirety of this industry from dildos to lingerie. I wish we could just say plus size or actual measurements. But that’s a bit of my pickiness. Details are this: This harness fits hips from 28 inches to 82 inches, which is such an expansive range. I was genuinely shocked to see that claim. It also fits up to 44 inch thighs.
I haven’t taken my measurements in awhile, but I have about a 44″ waist, and it worked wonderfully for me. The toys I use slip in easily, and it does feel firm against my body. Having that back cushion feels both supportive and comfy. Though I didn’t get a change to put my cock in someone’s butt (yet), I did get several really intense blow jobs. The straps did eventually work looser than before, but it wasn’t at a disturbing rate. It would not be inconvenient to have to re-tighten the straps during a play session either.
This kit also comes with three cock rings of different sizes. I love how much they thought of their customers with this. The rings change out easily with three snaps, but those snaps also feel secure enough to stay in place even with vigorous fucking. And the best part about this harness? The front panel can be removed, which means that a strapless strap-on can be used with it! If your strapless feels less than stellar, just slip this over it! So the amount of dicks this harness works with is pretty limitless.
In short, I’m going to use this harness a lot. I’m excited to get my dick wet with the newest harness adventure!

Indigo Tries the Bijoux Indiscret's Tassel Choker Brown

4 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a Blue Curacao. It sounds like it’s going to be amazing, and make anything better. But really, it’s just too much and overwhelms.
This was sent to me by Shevibe! If you enjoy it and want to buy it, consider buying it here in Black (which I did not receive) or Brown (which I did, and photos are below).
The Bijoux Indescrets Tassel Choker sits on a decorated bento box. It is plain tan leather strap with leather cords hanging from one ring in the middle of the strap. There is a box in the background that has the brand name on it.
So when I saw this item on the list available, I was really excited. I have heard about subtle fetish wear. I consider it the high-class kink coding of apparel. I saw that pretty brown color and I decided to add it to my list of requests, thinking I would wear it to every party and enjoy how my partner pulled on it. I pictured me in lovely outfits with this around my neck and casually drinking champagne. I was completely drawn in by that fancy name which rolls off the tongue in a french accent I don’t have: Bijoux Indescret.
When it showed up at my door, I was scheduled to go to a Burlesque show that night. So I went upstairs with my new fun accessory and I attempted to put together an outfit for it. I was up there for at least an hour. My gender feelings were off. Then that color didn’t match. I had the choker on, switching out shirt after shirt. Make-up or no? Should I put in earrings or is that too much?
As it turns out, this choker is hard to match with. The color is fairly easy, as it’s tan and that’s a neutral color. But the style is anything but neutral. It’s got long tassels and it evokes the idea of a long neck. It completely erases my hick nature just putting it on. But the problem is that I am not a fancy, high-class human. I have button ups, but they all have plaid. I have dress pants, but they are all really stretchy pants that happen to come in black. As it turns out, this high-class aesthetic is hard to match unless you’re going to a cocktail party.

I even took this choker to Playground Conference, which is a fetish event in many ways, but I still couldn’t find a way to wear it. I have to let myself down easy here: I may not be the best person for this gorgeous high-brow attire.
However, here’s another thought. Why should I be working so hard to fit this choker into my life? Perhaps Bijoux isn’t my aesthetic, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t love a choker that is. Something like those weird wire criss-cross ones I used to own when I was 12. Perhaps a simpler silver chain. A leather cord with some subtle words etched into it. These are things that I could fit into an everyday look. I feel that I would wear them more and feel more like myself wearing them.
Now, if a fancy event comes up, will I be able to wear this piece? Oh absolutely. But until the local country club lowers it’s prices, or possibly someone rich sweeps me off my feet, I will have to let this sit in it’s box collecting dust.
So this choker is really not my style, and that might be enough to earn a 4 in some cases, but it’s not the real reason it’s a 4 right now. I have my biggest, fattest bone to pick, so lean back and get comfy. This choker is extremely small. I wore it on the last hole, and it was still tight. Honestly, I’m sure that’s 40-50% of the reason why I don’t think it fits my aesthetic. Because it doesn’t even fit on my neck. I would also like to say that this is not a sized product either. This is a one-size necklace. So if your neck is bigger than (roughly) 17.5″, you are shit out of luck here.
I am fairly tired of companies ignoring plus sized folx in their quest to make money. I would spend so much money to have some accessories that fit my body. So would all the fat folx in the world. So why does this company ignore us? Well, it’s probably lost in the past like so many others. This isn’t an overt aggression on their part. But it is an aggression in many ways. I have a lot of anger about this choker because I loved the style. I love the feel of it. It’s classy. It’s pretty. It’s dainty. But it just doesn’t fit. So I’m done trying to make this work for me. I shouldn’t have to work so hard to wear a necklace. Instead, I’m going to wear the cord necklaces I already own.
Enjoy, straight-sized folx. There’s something better somewhere else for me.

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.
