Click to embiggen. Yes, my friends! The time has come! No longer will you have to slave away on the internets trying to figure out WTF that-one-toy-in-Epiphora’s-header is. No longer will you have to sheepishly email/tweet me and awkwardly try to describe the location of the toy you need identified. I took the picture that became my header image in fall of 2008, when I bought HeyEpiphora.com, so these toys are all from that time. Some of them are a bit embarrassing… Evolved Symphony Rhapsody Hitachi Magic Wand — I received my first one a little too early in my reviewing career. Yeesh.

Bswish makes mostly battery-powered plastic toys and likes putting Bs in front of all their toy names.
It’s okay. You can be wary of the Bswish Bnaughty Unleashed. I was too. And sadly, having tried it now, I still am. I was really hoping for a triumph. So many remote vibrating bullets suck royally. Many of the bullets are loud. They malfunction. They fail miserably at being discreet. Some aren’t waterproof, which becomes a problem when, uh, juices, come near them.

And then, of course, it’s not unusual for remote bullets to die. Not unusual at all. Which is what happened with my previous remote toy, . . . read more
The Bswish Bcurious, which is quite humorously one letter away from being called the “Bicurious,” joins a small, tight-knit family of other rechargeable clitoral stimulators: its Bswish predecessor, the Bsoft, and the LELO Lily, Nea and Mia. As of this writing, there is actually an astoundingly small number of clit toys that are rechargeable. In that way, the Bcurious doesn’t have much competition. Yet I still expected a lot from it. Yes, indeed — I expected it to actually get me off. (Hey, I’ve learned this is sometimes a lot to ask.) When I think about the Bcurious, I keep coming back to one adjective: enjoyable.

I like adorable names. Short, pithy names that aren’t “So-and-So Pornstar’s Pleasure Stick,” etc. I like velvety plastic. It’s soft to the touch, yet hard enough to be noticeable when inserted. I like thin toys — you know, the kind that don’t pose a threat to my insides. And I seriously love bright colors. Really, how could I not like Bgee? Bgee came in a tall, black matte box. I wasn’t especially fond of the lingerie-clad black and white and strangely cropped woman on the front, but at least she wasn’t faking an orgasm or making out with some guy’s neck. Also, the photograph of the blue Bgee on the box was a much darker blue than the toy actually . . . read more
