We-Vibe Wish vibrator

WE-VIBE HAS A NEW TOY OUT AND I’M SCREAMING ABOUT IT. It’s a squishy, oversized bugger called Wish that’s packed with rumbly power. It’s not without flaws, but that’s all I’ll say for now. [Edit: here’s my review.]

Sliquid flavored lubes: Tangerine Peach and Blackberry FigNew flavors of Sliquid lubes are here! I have yet to get my tongue on them, but damn if they don’t sound delicious: Tangerine Peach and Blackberry Fig.

Satisfyer, commonly known as “that company ripping off Womanizer,” has 5,000 different models of their suction toy these days. Incredibly, they sent all of them to me. My clit has some work to do.

Tickler rechargeable vibrators: Classy, Choosy, and Snazzy

Tickler, whose forgettable battery-operated vibes I reviewed years ago, has a new line of rechargeable toys: Classy, Choosy, and Snazzy. Despite it being the worst color ever, I kinda want Snazzy. It looks like it could hug my clit in just the right way.

Screaming O has also delved into rechargeable vibrators with the release of the Charged Positive and Vooom bullets. How do they fare against the almighty We-Vibe Tango? I plan to find out and tell you!

Fun Factory Laya II vibratorIn a move that feels like it should’ve happened years ago (but hey, I’ll take now), Fun Factory released a rechargeable version of their classic Layaspot. Now it’s just Laya, because snappy shortened names are in. (She says as if she knows.)

Even Rocks Off upgraded their classic prostate stimulators with a rechargeable bullet vibe. Rechargeables! They’re all the rage!

Horrible lubes and sprays from Sir Richard's and Jimmyjane

I’ve already ranted about this but it deserves repeating: Sir Richard’s and Jimmyjane came out with a line of lubes/sprays called “Better Than Spit” (good job, that’s the lowest bar for any lube), “Champion Oral Sex Spray,” “Slick Dick’s Guy Grease,” and “Soak n’ Stroke Tug it Out Masturbation Polish.” MASTURBATION POLISH. This is like the AXE body spray of sex stuff.

OhMiBod Club Vibe 3.OH remote controlled panty vibratorLastly, worthwhile changes to the new generation of OhMiBod’s sound-responsive Club Vibe, the 3.OH: now both the remote and toy are rechargeable, and the toy is smaller so as to better fit in your undies.

    Ooh! I love Sliquid’s flavoured lubes – must see if I can get my hands on one of these new ones.

    *also, NO, NO, BAD JIMMYJANE

  • AceDenise

    Ew, “Masturbation Polish”? “Better Than Spit”? Way to set the bar high there, Jimmyjane. Blech. I kinda want that Toyfriend Choosy, if it’s strong and rumbly. It might be better than the Lelo Gigi 2 if it has some actual power.

    I wonder if you can use flavored Sliquid lubes on waffles in a pinch? They all sound delicious!

  • Pillow Princess

    The Laya looks lovely! More more-or-less-whole-vulva vibes are always good. The Guy Grease thing had me SCREAMING though – sex toy marketing is gendered enough as it is, can we not???

  • Kimberlee Dirkson

    Jus picked up Sliquid’s blackberry fig lube… it doesnt really taste. Unless I’m missing something and all of their lubes are supposed to taste diluted. Was unimpressed tbh.

  • Kat

    I was super excited about the new Sliquid flavors, but when checking out the bottles at work I realized they’re sweetened with aspartame. I hadn’t realized it before, and it’s kind of a bummer.

  • Rin

    Can’t help but wonder if rechargeable Laya will be better than Layaspot was. I recall that bugger as being really weak & rattly – not good descriptors for sex toys at all.

    And I gotta laugh at those lube bottles. It’s like trying to make all their lube bottles look like hair conditioner or something. XD

  • dootsiebug

    Can’t wait to see your review of the Satisyfer. I’ve seen a lot of complaints about the rechargeable model’s charger plate shorting out.

  • I want to try the new “Laya”. The original’s weak motor was a deal breaker for me. So I’m hoping the upgrade addressed this.

  • It’s still a vibrator, so not as squishy as a dildo could be, but there’s definitely some nice cushion around it.
