OhMiBod

OhMiBod is the company you turn to when you want your vibrator to pulse along to Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream.” I don’t listen to music when I jack off, so they’re not really my thing, but some of the toys in their Lovelife line are pretty rad, especially the versatile Cuddle.

Sex toy news: menstrual cups and "cyclonic vibrations"

Sex toy news: menstrual cups and "cyclonic vibrations"

FUN FACTORY IS MAKING MENSTRUAL CUPS. YES, THIS DESERVES ALL CAPS. They’re called the Fun Cups. I have used them for many a period now and they have been a worthy addition to my bleedin’ life. [Edit: review here!] Jimmyjane’s latest vibrators are called Love Pods: Halo, Coral, and Om. Halo claims to have “revolutionary cyclonic vibrations.” Am I excited to eviscerate these toys? Absolutely. Do I care that that sounds petty as fuck? Nope. Hating on Jimmyjane is one of the simple pleasures of my life. For the first time in years, Je Joue has new stuff. Nothing flashy, just some basic rechargeable bullets, but you know, I’ll take basic over false claims of innovation… [loud exaggerated cough] Meanwhile, . . . read more

Announcing the Amplified Voices Sex Blogger Scholarship!

Announcing the Amplified Voices Sex Blogger Scholarship!

Hi! Me again! Today I am using exclamation points a lot because I’m so excited to announce this thing! Remember how I’m teaching an online sex blogging class this fall with my good friend JoEllen Notte? WELL, thanks to several amazing companies, we are offering six individual scholarships to the class, which will be held online from September 1st through October 20th. Yes, six, thanks to the generosity of Early to Bed, Fuze, We-Vibe, Dame, Crystal Delights, and OhMiBod. Our aim with this scholarship is to amplify the voices of people who have, in the past, been under-represented in sex blogging. We want to combat the notion that sex blogging is only accessible to white, affluent, able-bodied cis people. The scholarship is open to all, but priority will . . . read more

Sex toy news: masturbation polish & the rechargeable craze

Sex toy news: masturbation polish & the rechargeable craze

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.] New 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, whose forgettable battery-operated vibes I reviewed years ago, has a new line of rechargeable toys: Classy, Choosy, and Snazzy. Despite it . . . read more

Sex toy news: squirting dildos and flapping tongues for your dick

Sex toy news: squirting dildos and flapping tongues for your dick

Vixen has released a peculiar dildo called the VixenAire Mustang. It inflates when you apply pressure to the base. I love my Mustang, but the VixenAire only inflates near the base of the toy, which I find weird??? For ages, I’ve hoped a company aside from Bad Dragon would invent a silicone squirting dildo. It has become so with the Pop! A SQWEEL FOR YOUR DICK. It looks like a torture device, but so do all the Sqweels. Fun Factory’s latest vibes are Lady Bi, a rabbit, and Moody, a curved G-spot/prostate toy with a textured flared base. It comes in orange! Um, yes, my need to rub these vibrators all over my body is strong. These are the new Tenga . . . read more

Sex toy news: worm-like vibrators and cheeseburger ball gags

Sex toy news: worm-like vibrators and cheeseburger ball gags

Since we last spoke, LELO has gone a bit insane with the new releases. They’ve now put out the Ina/Mona Wave, [edit: review here!] Siri 2 [edit: review here!], Pino, and PicoBong Transformer. Thoughts on the Mona Wave and Siri 2 are forthcoming. Thoughts on the Pino and Transformer: they’re stupid. Je Joue has two new toys, the Nuo butt plug and Dua dual vibe, controlled by remotes that look like pens. OK, I’m down. Laid, a Norwegian company perhaps best known for their silicone cock rings and stone dildos, is trying to make a smart pelvic floor exerciser called Loop. OhMiBod just announced that their Cuddle vibe and Share cock ring will be added to the blueMotion line, making them adjustable . . . read more

Epiphora's best and worst sex toys of 2014

Epiphora's best and worst sex toys of 2014

[Check out my annual best/worst tag for older and newer lists!] Oh hey, remember 2014? It was the year I was a guest on Sex Out Loud Radio, I taught a sex blogging class, I fell in love with someone new, and I bought a house. This year I coined a new catchphrase, “that’s not where my clit is,” which can be applied to any unsatisfactory experience. I shook my head in disgust at the LELO Pino, Teddy Love, and shitty G-spot articles. I hung out with my friends, bid farewell to the makers of fantastical dildos, and said hello to my new sponsors. I conducted several hugely successful giveaways, one of which netted some of the most creative entries I’ve ever seen. I also got . . . read more

Review: Lovelife Adventure, Smile, Discover, and Cuddle

Review: Lovelife Adventure, Smile, Discover, and Cuddle

OhMiBod is commonly known as the sex toy company that makes music– and app-responsive vibrators, but their Lovelife line is a departure, and a valiant effort. It’s a line of less expensive rechargeable toys that do not care whether you’re blasting Meatloaf. Usually, for a rechargeable vibrator, you’ll spend at least $90, and up to $200 depending on size, functionality, and arrogance of the brand. In the Lovelife line, you can get a rechargeable vibe for as low as $59. Which is not to say that you should — each toy falls in a very different place on the scale of “trash” to “treasure.” There are seven toys in the Lovelife line, all named after the things that OhMiBod co-founders Suki and Brian believe are important to a . . . read more

Sex toy news: long-distance sex toys and useless gimmicks

Sex toy news: long-distance sex toys and useless gimmicks

The BIG! NEWS! of the moment is LELO’s latest product, the Ora. It’s basically a re-imagined SaSi, which I gotta say, I’m not wholly opposed to. I just think it’s funny that LELO is marketing this like they thought of it first. Two steps forward, one step back. Fun Factory’s latest is a fucking joke of a thing called Amorino. It has a silicone band around it that is supposed to enhance pleasure for someone somewhere, but is mostly a marketing gimmick so they can liken it to cupid’s bow. Sigh. At ANME, We-Vibe promises updates to their Touch and Tango, Aneros is unveiling a vibrating Evi, and Jopen is adding stuff to their Lust line, including rabbits, anal toys, and . . . read more

Sex toy news: ceramic dildos and moustache-shaped vibrators

Sex toy news: ceramic dildos and moustache-shaped vibrators

The PVC James Deen dildo was found to be 61% phthalates. Doc Johnson responded with some jibberish. ANME happened and many new toys were debuted there. Awesomely, the Redhead Bedhead went and took photos for us plebeians. Big thanks to her for the Tantus and OhMiBod photos below! So yes, Tantus is putting out a line of harnesses, as well as a handful of sci-fi toys in collaboration with SheVibe. Neither of these excites me beyond comprehension, but I still heart both companies beyond comprehension. Pipedream is faux-innovating with new ceramic and aluminum toys. According to the Redhead Bedhead, the reps at Pipedream were “so convinced that they were the first with the idea” to create ceramic toys. Of course they . . . read more
