TPE

TPE stands for “thermoplastic elastomer.” It is a porous material, but not a particularly unsafe one.

Review: Queen Bee

Review: Queen Bee

Me, masturbating: uh, don’t mind me, I’m just over here jamming this ugly-ass hairbrush-lookin’ thing against my vulva in a feeble attempt to orgasm. And I’m failing, friends. I’m failing and I’m angry. Me, writing: my fingers tingle with impending rage as I hover over the keyboard. I’m looking for a word. Like “disappointing” only meaner. Like “frustrating” but 100 times worse. Abhorrent? Heinous? Exasperating? Disgraceful? Language can’t fail me now, not when so much is at stake. Not when there’s still a possibility that some human on earth might buy the Queen Bee. The Queen Bee is the first vulva-specific vibrator made by Hot Octopuss, a company known for trying to make the word “Guybrator” happen penis toys such as the Pulse. Their products . . . read more

Review: Better than Chocolate

Review: Better than Chocolate

Let’s get one thing out of the way: I don’t like chocolate all that much.

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

LELO's Bo: cock ring of the future?

LELO’s Bo: cock ring of the future?

I just discovered the existence of Bo, a new cock ring from LELO. Get this: it’s rechargeable! Has any company made a rechargeable cock ring before now? I believe not, and this makes Bo all the more intriguing. Bo is made of TPE, comes with a travel/charging case, and supposedly lasts up to 4 hours on a 1-hour charge. LELO is marketing this as a “gentlemen’s” toy, which explains the sleek and angular look of it. It’s definitely sexy, and I’d expect nothing less from LELO. But I’m not so sure this thing will play well with clits. You see, I’m very pessimistic about cock rings. Many of them are powered by watch batteries, and that is not nearly enough . . . read more
