Editor’s Pick



  • Lube & Lascivious Conduct: A quest for a lubricant that doesn’t suck by Dollfacekilla

  • No, a good lube is totally clear, and like a good joke, completely tasteless. I’m in the market for the good stuff so I’ve asked the friendly folks at TabuToys.com to provide me with a list of their top 10 selling sex lubricants for me to rate and compare. This will be an epic task requiring a cast-iron stomach and a sturdy wrist. But now it looks like I’m stalling and as Jane Gumb says, “It put’s the lotion on the skin or it get’s the hose.”


    Editor’s Note: While this was posted out of the date range of this Pleasurists I do make exceptions for exceptional reviews. I read this review a few weeks ago and didn’t know who was behind it but was ultimately impressed. I love the premise of the site as well as the reviews and product mentions, I love reviews of bad products that are snarky and witty and this one definitely fits that bill.

Babeland Review: Sensuous Soak Kit

I recently had the privilege of trying out the Sensuous Soak kit for Babeland and all I can say is, Wow! I really loved everything about this kit but it seems to no longer be available at Babeland. That’s such a shame too because it really was an impressive kit!

The first thing I noticed about the Sensuous Soak kit was that it was all neatly packaged inside of a pink Babeland gift bag. I’m actually surprised that all of the contents were able to fit inside so well but it is definitely a cute package perfect for gifting! Anyone would love to receive it! I know that I personally would welcome a gift like this on any day, for any occasion, so hopefully they be restocking it soon!

I’m going to go over each individual item for you and you’ll be amazed at how many fabulous items are crammed in there! Each of the following items is included in the Senuous Soak kit to make for a wonderfully relaxing escape any day of the week!

1. Babeland’s own bubble bath! It’s scent is called, “Afternoon Delight” which I found to have a light, pleasant scent that is gender neutral. I asked my husband what his feelings were on the scent and he said that it just smelled clean. He wasn’t turned off by it at all and it didn’t smell like a bouquet of flowers. Either way, I doubt that anyone will find the scent offensive and I liked it!

We thought the bubbles foamed really well to provide us with a nice and thick, long lasting bubble bath. They lasted probably around 30-45 minutes which was long enough for us to do what we needed to do in the tub. They were still present after 30-45 minutes, just not as thick as before. We were done at that point and ready to get out though.

The ingredients for
Babeland’s bubble bath are printed on the 250 ml. bottle and they are as follows:

Purified water (agua), sodium laureth sulfate, cocamide, MEA, cocamidoproyl betaine, sodium chloride, polysorbate 80, shea butter, fragrance, DMDM hydantoin, FD&C Yellow #5, and FD&C Blue #1.

2. The personal vibrating foam sponge by Body Spa was also fantastic! We found it to be a quality sponge that lathered easily and really enhanced our bath time fun. Not only did it relax our muscles when we used it on each others neck and shoulders but it also aroused our other senses when used elsewhere. It was definitely a wonderful bonus that not only helped us relax but also helped us to get in the mood!

When our playtime was over, I decided to try and locate the vibrator inside the sponge. I did this in an attempt to let you all know if this sponge is a one time use job or if it is reusable. What I found was that there is a very small hole/canal that you can access the bullet vibe through. You can, with some careful effort, remove this bullet from the sponge. It is a very shiny, silver colored plastic bullet that has an O-ring around it’s battery cap. Ours did not leak at all and the watch batteries are easily changed to use it again! Putting the bullet back inside of the sponge was much easier for me than taking it out. I’m just glad that it isn’t a throw away item!

3. The
Jimmyjane Afterglow massage candle in cucumber water scent was amazing! This candle is just beautiful and it smells good too! It comes in a box to protect it and the first thing you notice when you lift the flap of the cardboard are the words, “Melt Me”. Further unfolding of the box allows you to access the manual which has instructions in English, French, Spanish, German and Dutch.

Under the manual, there is a fabulous box of matches so your sure to be able to light your new candle anywhere! There are a lot of matches in this box and it will, more than likely, outlive the candle itself. I’m still amazed!

Finally, you’ll be able to remove your candle as well as the included brush that will allow you to spread melted wax all over your lover. Of course, you’ll have to burn the candle for about 30 minutes or so beforehand or you’re just not going to be able to get any massage oil out. Sorry but that’s just the way it is.

4. Last but not at all least, we have a waterproof (Yes, waterproof!) book called,
“Aqua erotica.” It’s got 18 wonderful stories and about 204 pages so you’re sure to have something to do in the tub even if your lover isn’t home. It’s well written by several different authors but it’s edited by Mary Anne Mohanraj. It’s a great read and most of, if not all of the stories, involve some sort of water so it’s especially great for those who have a water fetish!

I know what you’re thinking about a water proof book too. No, this is not a waterproof book like toddlers take into the bathtub. It’s much more advanced than that, I promise! The cover and pages actually feel very similar to a regular paper back book, just not quite as papery. You can even tear the pages if you’re trying to make a point for your readers to let them know how similar they are to actual pages. You can really get it wet without damaging it too! Yes, I tried to drown mine for you but I simply toweled it off before leaving it open to thoroughly dry in a well ventilated area and it’s now just fine. It’s actually pretty amazing and I think they should make more books like this for those nights that I’m reading and snacking at the same time. That way I can just wipe them off when I miss my mouth because I’m not watching what I’m doing.

So, yeah, this is a fantastic kit and I loved all of it’s components. Not only did the candle help set the mood for the bubble bath but it also provided a nice melted wax massage afterwards. The bubbles, vibrating sponge and book were a sinful indulgence that I’m glad I was able to share with my lover too. It was a perfect escape to an isolated place where we could both relax, even if it was just our bathroom! It was truly a wonderful evening.

Want to see what other kits are available at Babeland today? Go check them out for yourself because I’m sure your gonna find something you love! Have fun and until next time, Muaaahhh!

A relationship confession

It's been hot here for days and I'm starting to feel as though I simply can't take it anymore. It's not supposed to be like this already! For crying out loud, it isn't August! Where did these 90-100 degree days come from?! UGH!

These hot days pose so many problems for me that you have no idea! I'm now stuck in this house with three kids because it's too hot outside for me to feel comfortable sending them outside for awhile. This leads to all three kids fighting, all three kids wanting to take over my big HDTV for their games, all three kids fighting over the TV I have granted them permission to play their games on, all three kids complaining that they're bored and all three kids wanting to go to their Grandma's house. Now, I have no problem with them going to their Grandma's house mind you! In fact, I really enjoy it but before you get the wrong idea here, I love my kids like nobodies business! I just need breaks from them sometimes or nothing ever gets done! As a matter of fact, I'd probably shrivel up into a mumbling ball of insanity if I didn't get breaks from them once in awhile!

I have to admit that these hot days have taught me a few things about my relationship. I know that sounds odd but you have to hear me out first! It all started when the love of my life just happened to be working on the riding lawnmower. The NEW riding lawnmower that I gifted to him last father's day mind you! Just the fact that it was broken already led me to the conclusion that this was as good an excuse as any to argue with him. My hopes were that I'd get him riled up enough that he'd come inside to the air conditioning to give me a good spanking but it didn't work! Damn it, it didn't work! The upside of this is that the grass is now all mown nicely, though a bit dry and perhaps dead looking due to the heat but I will NOT walk through the yard if I can't see what's in the grass! There could be like five snakes in there waiting to get me! EEKK! Okay, probably not but you get the idea....

Through my attempts to get him riled up at me, I realized that he's better at relationships than I am! How is that possible?! Well, it's actually kind of simple when you think about it. First of all, unlike me, he lets things go very easily. I mean, I could stand there and list a hundred things that I don't like about him but they all just roll of his back......well, usually. I mean, we all have our exceptions, right? Anyway, I could say anything and he simply won't argue with me. I can tell him what a dick he's being and he'll simply say, "Yeah, but you love me anyway." What kind of an argument starter is that?

The next thing I noticed about him was that he knows how to keep things exciting. You know how when you're just starting out in a relationship and everything is new and full of sexual tension? Well, after awhile that tends to wear off and things may become a bit predictable or even boring. He knows how to get around this though! He knows how to set up date nights and take me out to dinner without even knowing what is going on until I'm sitting down at a table somewhere. He's also fantastic about bringing home flowers to surprise me with. It's the little things like that and speaking of the little things, he'll even hug me and tell me how beautiful I am even after I've been working in the vegetable garden. I can be covered in dirt and sweat from my head to my toes and he'll still grab me and love on me! Wow, right?

Another wonderful thing about him is that he knows how to love me. That may sound weird but we all need love in different ways whether that be confessions of love or through actions like hugs and strokes. We're all different in that respect but he KNOWS how to love ME and I love that about him. He also never goes to long throughout the day without flirting with me. There's nothing like flirting to make me feel sexy and wanted!

What all of this boils down to though is that he's better at this than I am. I'm willing to admit this right now but I probably won't later. I suck at relationships for the most part but he doesn't. I don't feel like he should be the only one working on these things though and I should really step up to the plate but damn it! I fucking LOVE the make-up sex! How am I ever going to get any make-up sex if I can't get him to argue with me! I crave that raw attraction when everything you've been holding onto suddenly lets go and you just go at it! Yeah, that's some good stuff right there! Maybe that's my contribution though.....who knows?

Editor’s Pick



  • Midgets, fat men and baby carriages…oh my! Ninn Worx Collector’s Edition of “Catherine” by Laurel

  • [F]rankly, I don’t think good porn should leave you questioning what you just saw. I don’t think good porn should leaving you thinking at all after watching it. [...] So, if you can ignore the midget, the fat man and the baby carriage and everything else that seems out of place in an adult film, this is totally worth watching.


    Editor’s Note: I love unique products and good reviews, and this review happens to have both! It’s amusing while giving a good idea of the movie and just how amazingly weird it is. Artistic porn sounds like a good idea, right?

Babeland Review: The Angel

The Angel, by Fun Factory, is a travel friendly, compact vibe with an overall length of about 5 ½" but due to the battery cap on the bottom, and the control buttons on the base of the shaft, only 4" are insertable. Of course that should be ample length for using the curved tip to stimulate your g-spot or clit but it may not be a hit with those who love deep penetration.

The Angel is made from some of the softest silicone I’ve ever felt! It’s so soft that it almost feels like jelly but it’s way more hygienic than jelly could ever dream of being! Silicone is non-porous, phthalate free and sterilizable and that means that you can share this one with a friend or two. Since it does contain vibrating components and controls, your best bet for sterilization is wiping it down with a 10% bleach solution followed by a good rinse. If you aren’t going to share it and only need to clean it for yourself, just wash it off with antibacterial soap and water or your favorite toy cleaner.

Due to the softness and flexibility of the silicone that the Angel is comprised of, I found g-spot stimulation to be more of a tickle rather than a good, strong pressure. I like pressure, so the Angel was a miss for me in that respect but others may find the teasing to be more pleasant than I did. It was just so close to providing the pressure I needed that I found myself becoming frustrated with it. That’s when I decided to focus more on other sensations it was providing rather than being so focused on my g-spot alone.

The Angel has a diameter of about 1 ½" that provided me with a nice “filling” sensation and the vibrations were easily felt throughout the lower portion of my vagina. There are eight speeds of steady vibrations that range in intensity from barely on up to an easily felt intensity on the highest setting but I found them to be too buzzy and superficial. I couldn’t help but lust after more power than what the Angel could deliver. Of course, that’s just me and I am aware that there are those of you out there who don’t require the amount of power that I crave and the Angel may be just what you’re looking for. It’s definitely a good choice for those of you out there who happen to have a sensitive clit because this one has some pretty low level intensities that you would appreciate.

There are three patterns of vibration with the Angel too. These patterns are pulse patterns that start off with a long pulse variation followed by a shorter pulse with the last patten being the fastest of the pulses. These were fun to play around with but couldn’t quite push me over the edge. These too were just lacking the power that I needed to achieve orgasm.

The controls are fairly simple to operate via the + and - push buttons located on the base of the silicone shaft. You push the + button to turn it on and push it again to increase the speed. You can also just hold it down to zoom up to the highest intensity of steady vibration. Once you’ve reached the highest speed of steady vibration, you simply hold the + button down again to switch into the pulse patterns. Push it again to cycle through the three options of pulse patterns. To switch back into steady vibrations, just push the - button. Then push it again to decrease the power or simply hold it down to zoom down to the lowest speed setting. To shut it off, push the - button while you are on the lowest speed setting and that’s it! That’s all you need to know to operate this vibe!

The batteries are easy to insert via the twist off battery cap at the base of the vibe. It’s clearly marked on the battery compartment for proper installation of the 2-AAA’s and then you twist the cap back on. It does a sort of push in, then half twist to close. It’s fairly secure and I haven’t had a problem with it popping off during use. There is a rubber “O” ring located on the threads to make this vibe splash proof and that’s always a plus to help make cleaning a bit easier!

One thing that the Angel has excelled at is being quiet! This vibe may be a bit short on power for me but it’s a good trade off for the discreetness! My husband couldn’t even hear this vibe from across the room on high speed! This is definitely a great choice if you ever plan on using a vibe in public because I doubt that anyone would hear it!

Just remember that this vibe is silicone so you should probably only use water based lubricants with it. Silicone will adhere to silicone so definitely don’t use silicone based lubes with this one or it could damage that lovely finish.

All in all, the Angel may not have been a complete success for me but it definitely has a lot of potential for other users. I’d definitely recommend it for someone looking for a discreet vibrator but probably not as a good g-spot vibe. I’d also recommend it for someone looking for an “on-the-go” toy because it’s quite portable. Not only would it fit easily into a purse but it would probably fit into a lot of pockets too.

The smoothness and softness of the silicone will also make this a great choice for those who don’t like the rigidity of some toys. It’s quite comfortable when inserted because of this but it just didn’t win me over like I had hoped it would. It may be the perfect toy for you but I won’t be parting with my Hitachi for this one anytime soon!

Does this sound like a toy that you’d be interested in? Then head over to Babeland today to get your hands on one for yourself!

On to the reviews…


Editor’s Pick



  • Baby Jesus Buttplug by Red

  • The Baby Jesus butt plug looks like a sweet little babe all wrapped up in a blanket – fresh from the manger, one would presume. He tapers down to a nice narrowed butt plug neck at the bottom of his baby cocoon, and is propped up on a nicely flared base. His adorable little face is innocent and cherubic, and frankly, not super distinctly “Jesus” looking.


    Note: When the review gives me a boner just from seeing what the item being reviewed is I can’t not make it my pick of the week. Seriously, though, it’s always wonderful to see a review of a unique product and I especially love how the review was defended in the comments, like she said: “While some might not like/buy/see a point in this product, some might think exactly the opposite. That’s the beauty of individuality!” I’m definitely one of those opposites! While I’d seen the product before this is the first review I’ve seen.
