REJOICE, because Fun Factory is retiring their G4 line of vibrators in favor of G5. The G5s, which come in classic designs like Tiger, Big Boss, and Patchy Paul, have satisfying clicky buttons. Writing this, I am now realizing how much of a nerd I am that I’m excited about different buttons. They also have more settings, OK? The latest in sex toy crowdfunding campaigns includes a smart cock ring called Lovely and a 6-motor bendable vibe named Crescendo. Astroglide released a sperm-friendly lube called Astroglide TTC. Nice try, guys, but Yes already does it with much better ingredients. Tantus’ new Vibrating Progressive Beads are a great contribution to society. Silicone anal beads are already important, but vibrating ones even more so. Now the question is, can I put my Tango in . . . read more
Nomi Tang, named after the woman who founded the company, is best known for the Better Than Chocolate, which — spoiler alert — is not better than chocolate.
Vibratex has released a series of rechargeable mini vibes called The Girls. Princessa looks just freakish enough for me to try, but that rose-shaped button is silly, and they each only have three vibration strengths and three patterns. I thought Nomi Tang was dying, but I guess not since they have a new dual vibe called the Infiniti. Don’t get excited; it’s basically a LELO Soraya. Actual quote from Nomi Tang in this press release: “once you pop you cannot stop.” What. Courtney Trouble teamed up with Fucking Sculptures to create the behemoth that is the Double Trouble. Probably the closest a glass dildo will come to being a fist. Know what’s missing from your life? Bubbles wafting gently over your . . . read more
Those who remember the wrath I unleashed on the Nomi Tang Better than Chocolate may be surprised that I was even interested in the latest Nomi Tang creation, the insertable Getaway Wild. But the shape of the Wild reminded me of my old-time squirting lover, the LELO Ella, so I suspended my previous judgment — — until I dealt with the Wild’s battery compartment. Holy crap, the easiest way to make me quickly hate a toy is to make me loathe putting batteries in it. Honeymoon: immediately, irrevocably, over. Commence irritation and not-entirely-warranted judgment. Let me explain. The base of the toy unscrews to reveal the battery chamber. Inside the chamber is a plastic sheath for the 2 AA batteries. This . . . read more
Let’s get one thing out of the way: I don’t like chocolate all that much. In small doses or in Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, okay, but I’m not ravenous for it — and contrary to popular belief, my ovaries do not dictate that I will choose chocolate over a vibrator. But at least Nomi Tang’s Better than Chocolate isn’t called “Sunny Lane’s Cliterrific Manta Ray” or something equally mind-numbing. It at least has an interesting, ear-catching name, and a name that I can appreciate since it looks so nice as an acronym. This is a luxury toy, in part due to its price (nearly $90), in part due to its all-around elegant appearance. I was very impressed with the packaging, which . . . read more
