Indigo Tries the Spareparts Tomboi!

9 out of 10

Pairs nicely with a Dark and Stormy. It’s deep and refined, like a good pair of mens underwear. But it’s also a little fruity with a nice pop.

This toy was sent to me by my good friends at Betty’s Toybox in exchange for a fair and honest review. You can purchase it here in Red or here in Black. At the time of this post, they run for about $90 (USD). 

The Spareparts Tomboi box is sitting on a wooden floor with a yellow wall behind it. The box is black and has a picture of a masculine-leaning person on it.

I thoroughly enjoy dicks, and what I enjoy also as much as dicks in me is dicks on me. I previously owned only one harness, which I really enjoyed using with a partner. It had almost everything I wanted in a harness, including plus-sized options, except it was incredibly gendered as femme. Sometimes, I don’t want to be femme. In reality, I’m more likely to feel masc when I want to pack or use a strap on. With my harness being so gendered, I would sometimes put it on and feel immediately uncomfortable. To aid this gap in my toys, I requested the Tomboi Harness, created by Spareparts. The kind folx over at Betty’s Toybox sent this, along with the Pierre to help my review queue while I was out of state during the summer.

The Tomboi runs about $90 (US) at time of posting. This is quite a large investment for many people, which I am not ignoring here. If cost is an issue, there are a few other brands that are worth looking at, including the Sportsheets Divine Diva, which I have reviewed. However, for those who aren’t plus-sized, I would recommend looking through this list for something appropriately sized. I have no reviews of these, but others may.

However, the price is the one major downfall of the Tomboi. When I opened the package, I was immediately won over by the fabric of this harness. It comes packaged in a carrying pouch of the same material the harness is made from. It feels slippery, smooth and still durable. It doesn’t feel out of place when I run my hands over it. Though I don’t run into much nylon underwear, I don’t expect that this harness would not be all that eye-catching or unusual to find in someone’s underwear drawer. I requested the red option because I love how the details of the waistband and the seams make it feel like just another pair of underwear that I’m putting on.

The Spareparts Tomboi is unfolded and laying on a clean wooden floor while the carrying bag lays beside it. The bag is propped up so that you can see the SpareParts logo. The bag is all read nylon. The Tomboi itself is mostly red with a black waistband and black trim. It's shaped roughly like typical men's underwear.

As a harness, the design of the Tomboi is perfect. It has two fabric pieces in the lining of the cod piece that overlap just enough to securely hold a toy in place, but open enough that it’s easy to remove the toy. In the front of the underwear itself is a ring that is completely hidden within the fabric, so the transition from underwear into harness feels discreet and seamless. This works perfectly with how my dysphoria manifests. This toy doesn’t trigger it because it just feels like another part of the underwear. It makes it easy to forget the dick in place is silicone and not factory-installed.

The ring is stretchy enough to fit dildos from 1.25 inches up to 2.25 inches, which allows for the most common dildo sizes to work with the harness. Additionally, since the holding fabric is in two pieces, it’s possible to part them and use this harness with a two-sided dildo. I will admit that getting a two sided dildo inserted into myself, at the same time as pulling up tight underwear was a bit of a challenge. I would not recommend trying it out without making sure you’re stretched properly. And I mean that for your vagina AND your legs. That was some exercise.

The SpareParts box is open to reveal the front of the Tomboi. It's wrapped with tissue paper. The focus of the photo is the o-ring, which is about an inch in diameter in the center of the Tomboi.This harness feels really secure in use. Though I haven’t fucked anyone with it, I did masturbate with it. The experience felt comfortable and not forced with this harness. To top it off, I could fit many different dildos in there, so I could follow my feelings on which dildo to use. This means that when I want my regular dildo (the one that is my dick), I can use it, or I can substitute a different one by my partners’ request.

In short, I’m a huge fan of this harness. When I used this harness to pack, everything stayed in place all day. When I use it for play (on my own), it was comfortable and natural to wear. Based on how I tested it during a solo session, I am sure that it will be a huge part of my partnered scenes, and I’m excited to use this harness more.

This toy was sent to me by my good friends at Betty’s Toybox in exchange for a fair and honest review. You can purchase it here in Red or here in Black. At the time of this post, they run for about $90 (USD).

Indigo Tries the Blush Novelties Noje W3 Wand

9 out of 10

Pairs nicely with a Shirley Temple, to go. I chose something non-alcoholic because drinking and driving is singularly awful. Don’t do that. Also, this drink is enjoyed with poise and elegance.

This toy was sent to me by the kind folx at SheVibe in exchange for a fair and honest review. At time of publishing, this toy retails for about $36 (USD). You can purchase in Sage (green), Rose (pink), or Wisteria (purple). The wand attachments can be purchased here for about $8 (USD) at time of publishing.

The Noje W3 Wand and the Noje W3 Wand attachments are sitting in their boxes next to a packed green bag, a green sleeping bag and a bicycle helmet. There is further description of the toy in the next image and in the post.

I have a confession to make. I wasn’t excited about this wand when I requested it. I have been using my Doxy wands for a year now, and they are powerful and rumbly. I am the type of human who puts the wand on my clit now because I’m such a power slut. I just live my life in such an electrifying and ridiculous way that I was convinced the Noje would do nothing for me.

And then I left my house for two months and lived in a tent.

The Noje is a wand that is compact, running only about 5 inches long with a head that is about an inch in diameter. It comes in the standard plastic blister case, and it has a single button on the butt of it. When I turned it on, I found that it was fairly quiet, but more rumbly than I expected. Because of these things, I decided to take it with me on my ad-tent-ture.

Let me be clear. I was in no way glamping (glamour camping). I had four canvas walls, a canvas roof (reinforced with tarp), an air mattress, and one bin which held all the clothes I brought with me. The fanciest part of my living situation was that I got to hike up a hill to make it to the place I worked where there was a coffee pot. I could use that coffee pot to make ramen, which I did for just about every meal. My butt is extremely fantastic now, thank you for asking.

Because of the whole canvas walls thing, I didn’t bring any fancy sex toys. I had one butt plug, two toys I needed to review this summer, and my pure wand in case anyone on Tinder wanted to watch me squirt (which they did not, apparently). For the vibrator option, I brought the Noje Wand. Let me tell you, I am delighted that I made that choice.

The Noje wand looks very nonthreatening when you look at it. It comes in two pastel colors: sage (for us mountain lovers), wisteria (for English garden lovers), and rose (for general garden lovers). The head of it is simply white, and overall, it looks elegant. I would not have been embarrassed if someone found this toy while visiting because it looks so glamorous. Perhaps I was glamping a little after all. In order to turn the toy on, you have to hold that button for at least four to five seconds. This is another reason why I loved traveling with it. The idea of this toy turning on in a bag was somewhat preposterous thanks to that handy feature.

A close up of the Noje W3 wand and the Noje Wand attachments in their boxes. The wand is a sage green with a white head and the attachments are all white.

The button on the bottom of the toy is also white, and it does not glow, except when the toy is on or charging. When charging, the butt glows with a gently flashing light, and when it is charged, that light stays on. When the toy is on, the light stays on the whole time. Now, the light on the butt is brighter than I would prefer. I was afraid that my camp neighbors could see all the outlines when I used this toy. However, this use as an indicator is simple and elegant, just like the wand itself. I love that it was easy to figure out and I never had to pick up the manual or box. Additionally, the charging cord is connected with magnets, which I still think is cool and no one will convince me otherwise. It makes up for the toy having a non-universal charger, which I know some people hate.

So how does the toy feel in use? Well, I will admit this. If I stayed home and always had my Doxy wands available, I wouldn’t use this toy very often. It’s not as powerful as my clit enjoys, and the options available get me off harder and faster. It’s a standard mini wand, nothing special. It’s got 5 different speeds (which all felt pretty good) and 5 rhythms (which I never touch because I’m a lazy reviewer and I know those will not get me off ever). These are all cycled through with the one button, which is standard.

You know what? I don’t remember this wand promising me anything special. It is built to be travel-sized and used during travel. As a travel toy, this wand excels for me. It’s on par with my favorite bullet from Fun Factory, which is in my safer sex kit for a reason. I love how it looks and how it feels in a travel situation. It stays off when I want it to, and it turns on when I wanted it. Based on my masturbation times and how long between charges while I was gone, I would say the battery lasts about four hours, which is really good for a travel toy.

This toy was sent to me with two mini wand attachments to use with it, which really changed the experience for me. The head of the wand on it’s own is lovely, but the two attachments added some variety, which I felt elevated this toy from an 8 to a 9.

The Noje W3 Wand is leaning against the sleeping bag, and the wand attachments are sitting beside it. They are all out of the box and the attachments are clean and white.

The first head was deemed The Hugger because it had two hard nubs that extended and it sort of hugs the clit. I enjoyed this attachment the most because it allowed me to use a lot of pressure, which I need to get off. I also loved how it felt on my clit. The dual heads made me feel surrounded. At first, it was a little shocking and it felt like my clit couldn’t get away. But after a minute, I found just the right angle to get off. It was a great orgasm.

The other head is extremely different. It was called The Flicker one side of this head has a thin piece of silicone sticking out that is roughly disk shaped. It shakes when the wand is on and creates a delightful flap that felt great for a tease. I used it to get warmed up and I could place it on my clit, hood or anywhere around my labia to help get the blood flowing. The other side that doesn’t have that flapping disc (which is the name of my new 90s nostalgia band by the way) has a ball of silicone the size of a marble. That little ball is the side I use for pressure. After I’m warmed up, I can jam that into my clit and get off. It doesn’t feel quite as good as The Hugger, but it’s still good.

All in all, this toy is really solid. I will continue to bring it on my travels, and I will continue to use it in canvas homes, truck stops, and many hotel rooms. I thoroughly enjoy having an elegant and simple wand to use when I’m away.

This toy was sent to me by the kind folx at SheVibe in exchange for a fair and honest review. At time of publishing, this toy retails for about $36 (USD). You can purchase in Sage (green), Rose (pink), or Wisteria (purple). The wand attachments can be purchased here for about $8 (USD) at time of publishing.

Indigo Tries the Pierre and Packer Pouch

For the Pierre: 10 out of 10

For the Packer Pouch: 4 out of 10

Pairs nicely with a nice 7&7 because the average score is 7. Not a bad drink, but not the best either. And only one of the ingredients is the issue. The other is gold.

These two items were sent to me by Betty’s Toybox. They are a great company who have lifted me up multiple times as a new blogger. If you’re interested in the pouch, you can buy it for $19 USD at time of publishing. If you’re interested in the Pierre, you can peruse four color choices ranging from Cashew to Chocolate. They are priced at $50 USD at time of publishing.

The New York Toy Collective Pierre and Packer Pouch sit on a small wooden table. The Pierre is roughly the color of a shelled cashew nut, and it is about 4 inches long. The Pierre also has testicles that are about 3 inches long and is modeled to look like an uncircumcised penis. Next to it is the packer pouch, which is plan black nylon with a New York Toy Collective logo on the bottom right corner.

It’s been a long time that I’ve wanted to try a packer. When I was with my last partner, I used socks occasionally and we would try out masculine terms during playtime. It felt right more often than I thought it would, considering how my gender fluctuates. Since those experiments, I have wanted a packer that felt more real and mindful of this purpose. I wanted it to be penis-shaped and the color of my skin (roughly). I wanted it to be used for that purpose so I wouldn’t feel like I had to fake it.

When I had the opportunity to ask for a packer from Betty’s Toybox and a packer pouch to match, I was so looking forward to having my own dick. And when the Pierre arrived, it was perfect.

Now, because of who I am as a person, I know the way to accurately measure how big someone’s penis is based on their hand. This assumes that the person in question is proportional. I learned this from a nurse, but it’s hard to describe through text. So if we ever meet in person, remind me to show to the dick length trick. Anyhow, through this trick, I’ve always known that had I been born with a penis, I would have one that was average length at most (about 5-6 inches) and with a wide diameter.

I have never once met a dick I didn’t like. Dicks are great no matter their size or width. Sometimes the people attached to them are less than favorable, but the dicks themselves are excellent. So my dick would be a little shorter and wider than the “average” dick, which makes me incredibly happy. I am pleased to know my body, even if it is hypothetical. As a result, I felt the Pierre and was immediately pleased by it. The length, the girth and the feel of it were all correct. It felt good in my hands.

The Pierre is pure silicone, with a soft shore. It’s modeled to look like a flaccid, uncircumcised penis with testicles at the base. Mine is in cashew color, which is the palest option. The penis length is 4.75″ and it’s width is about 1″. Because it is pure silicone, it can be sterilized through boiling or bleach/water mix. I haven’t worried too much about that with the Pierre because it’s only a soft packer, so it doesn’t get used except in a cotton housing.

In wear, the Pierre is very much like a small dream come true. The weight of it is wonderful, and I love how the size just peeks from between my hips. When I wear this with tight pants, it’s a definite bulge, but if I wear it with my usual baggy cargo pants, it becomes a little secretive. It’s something I remember when I walk in an unusual way, or sit and try to place my hands in my lap. I love both of these unique feelings, but more commonly, I choose the baggy pants because it’s less obtrusive in my small city (surrounded by conservatives).

With the Pierre being raved about, let me talk about the packer pouch. These are both items made by New York Toy Collective. I love the company because they never use words like “flesh-colored” and instead use foods to denote color. They also have a wide array of items for both trans folx as well as toys that are just plain fun to use. I also love their social media, which normalizes packing, including gender bending. It’s common for me to see short clips showing off how a particular dick looks in a skirt or short shorts. I thoroughly enjoy seeing folx like myself in their advertising and I look forward to seeing more.

So the packer pouch is far less expensive at $19 USD. It’s a simple and ingenious really. I thought “how could this work with every pair of underwear?” Well, it’s a simple nylon pouch with one edge of the opening longer than the other. In that longer side, there are strong magnets. This long edge can be folded over the top of underwear and they line up with magnets in the front of the pouch, which holds it in place.

So it does in fact work with every pair of underwear. However, the pouch is only about five inches long once put in place. This is where the pouches problems become apparent. As I placed it into my first trial underwear, I realized that five inches is not quite enough for me, though I’m uncertain if it is because my torso is long, if I’m too fat or if I just wear my underwear higher than most. Any of these could be the reason that this pouch didn’t work for me.

On a small wooden table sits the New York Toy Collective Packer Pouch with the Pierre inside. You can just see the outline of the Pierre's head and testicles, but the light doesn't reveal much more.

Here’s what happened: I would put the pouch on with my Pierre inside and I would begin my day’s work. After awhile, I would stop to use the restroom, and I would notice that the pouch had moved. One time, it almost fell into a toilet in a Staples and I just about had a heart attack. So I used a thinner underwear on my second trial. My men’s underwear is thick and cotton, so I thought the change would help the pouch stay in place. However, the same issue happened. Sometimes it was because of the magnets coming unattached, but often I would tug the pouch to sit somewhere more natural, and it would come undone.

In essence, there was no easy way for me to wear this pouch long term. I believe that someone smaller than me (either in length or width), will have an easier time wearing this pouch and using it for it’s intended purpose.

It was really hard for me to write this review, because I wanted to love both of these products so much. I wanted to wear this more days than not and have it feel as natural as the Pierre did in my hands. I put off writing it, trying it with different underwear, and new combinations of clothes. It just did not accomplish what I hoped it would.

So between these two products, the Pierre was a clear winner for me and a packer I will use whenever I can with other harnesses. However, the packer pouch will probably live in my underwear drawer, waiting to be used. It didn’t feel right to review them separately, because each other depended on the other for use. As a result, this review might be a bit longer than usual, but I hope that it is still useful for folx looking in this as an option.

These two items were sent to me by Betty’s Toybox. They are a great company who have lifted me up multiple times as a new blogger. If you’re interested in the pouch, you can buy it for $19 USD at time of publishing. If you’re interested in the Pierre, you can peruse four color choices ranging from Cashew to Chocolate. They are priced at $50 USD at time of publishing.

Indigo Tries the Lust Arts Frank’s Monster!

10 out of 10

Pairs very nicely with Whiskey Sour. It’s got full flavor and it’s very iconic. Not to mention that one too many will leave you in stitches (heeeyo).

This toy was sent to me by Lust Arts in exchange for a fair and honest review. At time of posting, it retails from $55 to $145, and you can purchase it here!

Two versions Lust Arts Frank's Monster sit on a rock together. One head sits on the other's shaft. The toys both look like their have stitches and wounds to mimic Frankenstein's Monster. One is purple and one is white.

Lust Arts came onto my radar originally through Frank’s Monster. Someone posted a photo of this dildo in the sex blogger chatroom and mentioned that it would probably be a monster to clean (pun intended, as always). I agreed, based on the photo. Those holes looked so deep and I just imagined all the vag gunk that would inevitably live in there. When I was able to chat with the owner, I offered an extra review because I could NOT choose between the Unicorn Horn and the Monster. Because I needed to see how this would clean. I needed to.

I am happy to say this finally: This toy is incredibly easy to clean. The 100% silicone means it sanitizes with soap and water, and the holes being deep was an illusion, produced by an inner core of black silicone, which peeps out where the outer color is shallow (in those “holes”). The soap and water washes everything away fantastically, and this toy takes no extra time to clean, while also being visually stunning.

And as a sex blogger, I am not ashamed to say that I noticed all of this as soon as I pulled out the toy. Because these are the things I think about now.

Now, because I am a lucky duck, there was a slight flaw in my first toy (which was in the Orchid/Purple color). This one is a firm inner core with a medium outer core, which I’ll talk more about later. However, because this one had a flaw, the owner sent me a second one, which I requested in Classic Film/White. This one, I also requested in the Medium core with a Soft outside. I did this because I felt that it would be more natural for a toy to be softer on the outside, which is true for me. I also wanted to be able to review the toy in more aspects, so I just went one step softer on each.

Two versions of Lust Art's Frank's Monster's sit on a rock. Both are on their bases, so they look erect. There is wheat in the background.

If you decide that White, Purple, and Green are not enough options, then there are custom options too!

Now, the lovely owner also knows I am a size kweeng. So I received both of these toys in the largest size, the Pounder. This size is 7″ insertable, and is 2.75″ at it’s largest diameter. It’s a perfect size for me to struggle just a little on initial insertion and then firmly conquer. I have gotten into the habit of starting with my White one (medium/soft) and then moving up to the Purple (firm/medium). The softer one allows my muscles to acclimate to the girth of the toy a little bit at a time. And I love being able to squeeze the toys I use because I like to show off my core. However, the firm one matches my usual routine of abusing my body with as much pressure and fight back as possible.

This toy is one of the most unique toys I’ve used in awhile. There is a gentle curve in the shaft of the toy, that perfectly places it into my g-spot. However, there is a selection of texture up and down the shaft. The combination is amazing, because I love texture, and I love g-spot sensation. This toy works perfectly whether I want to insert it and squeeze while I use a vibe, but it doesn’t slack off on the thrusting thanks to that texture.

As I always will when talking about Lust Arts, I have to mention the sizing options available. Now, they don’t use words like “Small” and “Large,” because that makes some people uncomfortable. They use names like “Teaser” and “Moaner” and “Pounder.” At first, these seemed a bit out of place, but after some thought, I realize that I love these names. Lust Arts knows what they do and they lean into it. Those names are cheeky and not shaming. Now, I feel like when I see them, it makes my purchase a fun one, and I can embrace it. The most important thing about the sizing options is that they are there. And that paired with the color is what really brings this toy up to a 10.The white version of Lust Art's Frank's monster sits on it's base on a rock. There are many more rocks behind it.

I think everyone could find something they like about this toy. If it’s not great in use, it’s a masterful art piece. If it’s too big, there are smaller sizes. If it’s too firm, there’s soft silicone options. I feel like Lust Arts as a company has thought of so many things. And they have been so open to correcting for things they haven’t thought of.

Indigo Tries the Lust Arts Unicorn Horn!

9 out of 10

Pairs nicely with a Sex on the Beach. I do mean the drink, but also the act. It’s a little bit magical and full of fruity goodness.

This toy was sent to me by Lust Arts, and you can purchase it here. It ranges from $40 USD to $130 USD at time of posting. Prices vary based on color choice and size choice.

A photo of the Lust Arts Unicorn Horn. It sits on a dirt patch, with wheat growing around it. In the background is a majestic blue sky.

This is part of my series: Sex Toys in National Parks.

A few months ago, I was approached by Lust Arts not just for reviews, but also for some consulting. As we know, I love to work with companies that are willing to pay and pay fairly. When I was politely approached by them, I happily sent my rates and since then, my interactions with them have been nothing but pleasant and lovely. It is rare to find a company so forward, transparent and willing to work with small bloggers like me (though I acknowledge I am not as small as I used to be).

I am here to talk about one specific toy; the Unicorn Horn. But I highly recommend checking out Lust Arts for any variety of their toys.

When I started blogging, I saw Split Peaches and the unicorn horns they make, but I wasn’t as excited about them. I liked them as an idea, yes. But they seemed a bit cartoon-like and I wasn’t as interested in the candy aesthetic. However, the idea was delightful, and I longed for a more grown up version of a unicorn horn dildo. Lust Arts delivered, describing their own horns as “high fantasy” and I cannot disagree. When I saw the Rainbow Agate color, I was very excited about the possibilities. But in the end, I chose the “Sunlight” option. The gold base is perfectly paired with a pearly white horn. This made my inner small girl scream.

Story Time! As a kid, I loved unicorns. I had a set of paper plates and cups that had unicorns on them for a birthday party. When the day came, I hid them in my room because I didn’t want them to get ruined with food. They sat in my dresser for years before they finally got tossed. This is how much I loved unicorns.

So when I saw the Sunlight coloring, what else could I do, but fulfill all my girlhood dreams of owning my own unicorn that would love me unconditionally and make all my dreams come true?

Well, this toy is certainly a new favorite of mine. I won’t lie; a good portion of that love comes from the novelty of having a truly majestic look to it. It’s detailed and angled in a beautiful way that reminds me of the novels I read growing up. However, this toy is also a really great toy to use.

Personally, I have the largest size because I am size royalty. The Screamer size is 8″ insertable and up to a 2.3″ diameter at the base. All sizes have the measurements posted for all toys on the Lust Arts website, which is another reason I love them, but I digress. When I received this, I was worried I wouldn’t be able to take all of the toy. However, I proved myself wrong quickly, and I genuinely think it has to do with the shape of the toy. The gradual increase of the diameter from .85″ to 2.3″ is wonderful for training. I have even used this in my ass, and as a result, I can take even bigger toys than before. It has the perfect gradient for stretching, which means I’ll probably use this toy for others as well, if I ever get the privilege of helping someone train a hole.

Now, aside from being a convenient shape, how does this dildo feel? Well I will admit that a few people may not like the shape of this. Some folks find cone shapes to be boring. Personally, I genuinely love the feeling of being stretched, so I love this toy for that reason. However, I think that this particular dildo has a better chance of being enjoyable than others, even if you don’t like cone shapes. The horn is so textured that it prevents the shape from being boring, even around the smaller end. I can feel the differences in the spirals and I enjoy using this toy, even if I don’t insert it all the way. If you like stretching, don’t be afraid to get a bigger size!

Because I love firm toys so much, I definitely got the firmest silicone I could. However, I also love how squishy this toy is, and I believe even the softer silicone would be a joy to use. Additionally, there is an option for custom colors. When considering the color, size and shore all come with variable option, this dildo is extremely versatile.

The Lust Arts Unicorn horn sits in a dirt patch right in front of a green tree root. In the immediate background is a stream. It's a beautiful wooded scene with moss and ferns.

How could I not? This stream was magical.

As some of my readers may know, I’ve been living on the road for about two months now. This was one of the toys I brought with me, and not just because I had to do this review. This toy is easy to clean, and easy to use. I even use it without breaking out my lube samples because it inserts so easily. Rest assured, that this toy travels well and will be coming with me when I travel again.

Over all, I love this toy. The aesthetic of it is a perfect blend of my childhood dreams and my adult desires. I love how it feels, and how easy it is to use and clean. I genuinely love the company that makes this toy and the owner is respectful and lovely to work with. I cannot wait to see more from them, and I think this toy has potential for a lot of people to enjoy it. And those COLORS.

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.

Indigo with a knitted vest that has blue and red stripes. They are wearing the Bijoux Indescrets Tassel Choker and they have make-up on. In the background, there is a mirror which reflects the clasp of the choker on the largest setting.

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.
