Dotted Delight Dildo from Good Vibrations

I’m always interested in quirky-looking toys and g-spot stimulators in safe, high-quality materials, so when I first laid eyes upon the Dotted Delight Dildo from Good Vibrations, I pounced. I remember requesting it on a whim, not actually expecting to get the opportunity to review a beauty like this for free in exchange for my opinion. I was sure I could review any number of other sex toys from Good Vibes, but this was the one wanted the most. I was sure they'd be out of stock by the time I asked. I seriously couldn’t be that lucky, could I?

When it arrived in the mail with its traveling companion, The First Mate Dildo (which I have recently reviewed) I was astonished by the size of both of them. I knew they were supposed to be big toys, but geez. The Dotted Delight was so thick and the curve looked so much more prominent in person. I briefly contemplated whether or not I was going to have vaginal pain later, and told myself that I really needed to pay more attention to measurements when I select a product I want to review, especially after a somewhat comical large toy misadventure I had had in the past. Well, that’s what I told myself, but somehow I don’t think it would have deterred me.



The Dotted Delight Dildo from Good Vibes measures 7.5” in length and measures at 5” in circumference at the head, about an average of 4.75” for the body, and 6.5” at the base. The dildo comes with two one-speed bullet vibrators and includes six watch batteries (each bullet respectively requires three watch batteries).



The Dildo is composed of silicone which is smooth, supple, and flexible to ensure that the extreme curve of the dildo is pleasurable rather than painful. Due to the nature of silicone, it actually heats up to the body during use which is all around a pleasant experience. The curve is so prominent that it hits right at the g-spot, which might be a bit extreme if you’ve never used a g-spot toy before. The body also features a series of smooth bumps at the base which are intended for clitoral stimulation.



This toy is super awesome because it has two hollowed out areas where you’re supposed to shove the bullets into. If the shape weren’t awesome enough, you can add the extra intensity of vibrations throughout the body, which means you could use one bullet in one socket if your find you prefer vibration in a particular area or if you want both bullets running at the same time. What can I say? I’m a woman who loves having options.



In addition to the kickass curves of this toy, it is also phthalate free, anal safe, and harness compatible; so, it’s not just great for g-spot stimulation, it’s good for stimulating the prostate too! My guess is it’s so awesome because it was actually designed by sexperts. Can I get an amen? If you remove the bullets, it’s completely waterproof so you can take this anywhere you want to get a little frisky.

Water-basedlLube is recommended for the Dotted Delight as any other type causes damage. To clean up the dildo, remove bullet vibes (if you decided to insert them) and then clean the dildo in any of the following ways: boil for 3-5 minutes, use hot water and a disinfectant soap, or run it through the dishwasher on the top rack. Whichever cleaning method you decide to use, make sure that if live with someone that they are okay with the way you’re cleaning it. I’ve never even bothered asking my roommates if they'd be okay with me running my toys through the dishwasher. I know they'd flip shit.



Based on my personal experience, I rather enjoy the feel of the toy, but I find I'm not able to hand such strong g-spot contact all the time. I’m still working my way up to extreme g-spot contact. For this reason, I actually don’t use the bullets – well, that and I have this tendency to accidentally damage bullets. I seriously don’t know what I did this time, but I was having a hard time getting the bullets to turn on, and once they turned on, it was rather difficult to get them to turn off. I have used this with other bullet vibrators which operate on N-1 batteries which I have a lot more luck with.

I also found that the bumps on the Dotted Delight didn’t really stimulate me the way I expected. I believe the bumps are intended for clitoral stimulation, but I had to bend the toy quite a bit and grind heavily against it to get some stimulation. I enjoyed it, but I imagine that it’s difficult to make a toy that works for everyone’s body. I wish that the bumps had extended up on the shaft for internal stimulation, but maybe that’s just me. Still, it’s a pretty well-designed toy. The only other issue I have with it is that it traps lint. I’m not sure if this is in part because I’ve been using a newer towel to pat it dry, but it picks up all sorts of fuzzies when I’m trying to clean it. It drives me nuts. I store it inside the packaging, but I end up having to clean it before each time I want to use it, so it doesn’t feel as “spontaneous” as I’d like. Regardless, I'm rather pleased with my overall experience with this dildo, and I'm glad that Good Vibes let me review it for them. Thanks for the good vibrations, GV!

Babeland Bondage Tape Review

I’ve not always been interested in bondage on the receiving end. Actually, until recently, the very idea of being bound sent me into a terror. I liked the idea of bondage, but only if I was administering it. It felt too scary too give someone else power. Overtime, my feelings have somehow changed. I’ve been finding myself more and more interested in the idea of being bound – still on my terms, but now I’m alright with being on the receiving end.

I was interested in finding something that was easy to use, discreet looking, and not ridiculously large and hard to use like some bondage equipment. I don’t want rope burns and knowing my luck I’d end up fraying them, so rope was definitely out. So, that’s definitely attracted me to the Babeland Bondage Tape which I received from Babeland for free in exchange for an honest review. As always, I’m more than happy to work Babeland because they are so ridiculously pro-woman and I thank them for letting me review for them.



The product in itself is rather simple. It’s roll of non-adhesive tape that measures at about 60 feet long and just shy of 2 inches in width. Crazy, right? That’s more than enough tape to get kinky with. It’s really awesome because without adhesive, you don’t have to worry about hair getting caught and ripping out a clump or getting that nasty, tacky feeling you can get if you have anything sticky come in contact with something else. I love that there’s no yucky glue.

I’m sure you’re wondering how it works since it isn’t adhesive. Well, it actually sticks to itself. Babeland Bondage Tape is strong, durable, and can handle a lot of stretching without tearing. It can also be cut, tied, wrapped, and reused. How’s that for a bang for your buck? Some of the suggestions on Babeland’s site include a light-weight blindfold, making your own fetish clothing, and bondage. I only used it for the bondage aspect and I was thoroughly satisfied with my experience.

I tried some very ridiculous things with this tape, in part to see how effective it was and due to a comic, last minute situation – my Halloween costume. This year, I was dressed as a pregnant teenager after being inspired by trashy reality TV shows such as 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom. My roommate, a fellow female dressed in drag as my white trash boyfriend who had gotten me knocked up. I walked around the entire night with a handle of booze in one hand and cigarettes in the other (or my cleavage). I found out that fake pregnancy bellies are AMAZING for hiding alcohol when you're trying to sneak some in a bar. True story.

I planned the concept of my costume weeks in advance, however, I put very little work into actually trying to throw together the costume until an hour before I was going to head out. It was then that I realized that I had not thought of any way to secure the pillow (my pregger’s belly) to my stomach. I looked at the recent shipment of goodies that I had gotten from Babeland to review and saw the Babeland Bondage Tape. I thought why not give it a shot and then asked my roommate to help roll the tape around me to keep “my fetus” in place. It did a pretty damn good job, but I ended up using the entire roll and spent the entire night waddling everywhere. Keep this in mind kinksters. If you have any persuasion towards a pregnancy fetish, you now have a way to create the illusion.



After I came back from my night out, I momentarily freaked out, afraid that I wouldn’t be able to reuse the tape, but to my surprise, it still works fine. Unfortunately by the end of the night, most of the tape started sticking to itself and was hard to get it to stop sticking to itself, but I did my best to get it unstuck. I then tested the tape strength via a little self-bondage.

[caption id="attachment_636" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="This is what it looks like if you roll the tape wrong or just by trying to bind a pillow to your body..."][/caption]

I worked on my ankles first and found the tape to be pretty sturdy and it seemed that I wouldn’t be able to wiggle my ankles free after binding them.

However, I wouldn’t be convinced until I wrapped the tape my knees. I have very strong, thick thighs, and if they couldn’t break free then I knew this stuff would be legit. I am happy to say that the bondage tape worked very well at keeping my legs bound.



My roommates had peeked in my room at this point and didn’t bat an eyelash at what I was doing because they expect this sort of thing from me. I decided to goof around after finding there was no way to easily free myself (unless I untied everything with my hands), and hopped out of my room to say hello to my roommates. I commented that I felt like a mermaid, hopped a few times and then went back to my room to free my legs. They were thoroughly amused. At the risk of sounding like a complete and utter moron, I thought it was actually pretty fun to hop around like that. It was incredibly difficult and hot since my legs were so close together. They joked around that they had better not find me around the house randomly hogtied and gagged because they’d be worried.



I made one of my roommates bound my hands for pictures and to see if I could slip my hands out of the tape. It was a fair deal since I had helped her get ready for her organization’s formal about 30 minutes previously. I was unable to slip my hands out, but I still had movement of my hands since I only asked to be bound at the wrists, and for a very short time at that.

I can say with great pleasure that the tape is durable and can take a beating. I was very pleased with my experience and I decided to re-roll that tape in case I have a chance to use it with a (play)/partner in the near future. If I give up on trying to unstick my tape from itself, I would definitely get this tape again.

Beginner's Penetrix Strap-On by Pipedreams Review

I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of owning a strap-on of my very own, and I've been especially interested in the Fetish Fantasy Series line so I jumped at the chance when I noticed the Beginner’s Penetrix Strap-On by Pipedream was available. I got this strap-on for free in exchange for an honest review from Eden Fantasys, a sex shop that I trust. At this time, however, Eden Fantasys has decided that they will not be carrying this product.

The set includes a black strap-on, a black mask,  black X-shaped pasties, and double-sided tape from Medline.

The strap-on is generally intended for male/female or female/female couples for pegging or penetrative sex respectively. It’s created for beginners, or people who generally do not like excessive or girthy penetration. It’s also great for those who interested in trying out a strap-on without making a massive financial commitment. Although I can’t say that the strap-on is made of the best quality, I think it’s a good starter for those who aren’t yet sure if they like pegging or penetration. Many well-made harnesses can run upwards of $40 without including the cost of a detachable toy, and even more so for . I figure it doesn’t hurt to try an inexpensive alternative like this one in case pegging or penetrative sex just aren’t your thing.

The shape can only be described as a minimalist or abstract penis. While it does have a head, the glans are so small and unpronounced that I can’t imagine that any adult-sized male would have a glans this narrow in diameter (my apologies if I’m wrong). The dildo measures 6” in length with a circumference that very gradually widens. The head is 1” long and measures a very unintimidating 2.5.” The circumference directly below the head measures at 3.” The length of the shaft seems to narrow in 0.25” increments. It is widest at the base where it measures at about 4.5.” Another thing to note is that the dildo has almost no weight to it. I find it strange that the dildo feels hollow like a curved tube in latex, which I can only presume it is. I was actually very tempted to cut it up because I think it’s so strange that it’s hollow.

The dildo is composed of PVC and latex which cannot be sterilized. It is highly recommended that you stay away from this product if you have any type of latex allergy. Likewise, since latex cannot be sterilized, it might behoove you to use a condom. Lubricants such as silicone or water-based lubes are suitable for this toy. To clean it, use a mild-soap with water and pat dry to avoid lint collection. Always clean directly after use.

I was taken aback by how narrow tapered it was when I first received it and I was immediately disappointed since I generally like average to large sized toys, but as one of my favorite lesbians in the world has mentioned, a small strap-on can be a good thing. She commented that isn’t able to take a lot otherwise she finds it very un-enjoyable. I mentioned to her that I was unable to find anyone with whom to test the strap-on, so I didn’t know what to do with the darn thing. Since it has been unused, she and her girlfriend - my other favorite lesbian in the world - expressed interest in taking it off my hands.

The dildo is fused to the base, which is bolted down and attached to the vinyl belts that you actually strap onto your body. The belts are highly adjustable. At the time in which I am writing this review, I am a size 16 and I had no problems securely and comfortably attaching it to my body. The belt has 10 already created belt holes. As you can see in the pictures, I am wearing denim and to keep the strap-on firmly in place, I used the second to last belt-hole. I have noticed fray on the belt, which is minimal but moderately noticeable.

Another reviewer on Eden Fantasys, expressed that the fit was a bit big for her. In her review she mentions that she generally wears a size 5 or 7. Based upon the fit she described and my personal experience, I think that this would work best for those who are in between sizes 10 and 16 in women’s, that is unless you don’t mind making your own holes in the belt for a better fit. I suggest wearing underwear of some type underneath the strap-on to reduce irritation to the wearer because the straps can add an unpleasant friction since straps are narrow and ride directly below the crotch.

The mask is simply made and is just black stiff material which I believe is nylon. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any hard evidence to tell me exactly what it’s made of. It has a tight fitting elastic strap at the back. The mask is wide, but you will need to move it down quite a bit if you don’t want any light peeking in. The fit of the mask might be a bit too tight for some.

The pasties are black X’s that are joined together and stored in a little baggie. Four strips of double-sided non-reusable adhesive are included with them. I found that the X’s covered my areolas for the most part, even though mine are a tad large. I noticed only minimal traces of pink peeking out from beneath the tape. I suggest cutting the strips into halves to make it easier to put the tape on the pasties as it is incredibly sticky. If you have a hard time applying the pasty, try to make the axis of the X’s meet at your nipple. This will be easier if the tape happens to overlap after application.

When removing a pasty, firmly hold breast tissue to chest and gently pull away the pasty away from your body. If done slowly and gently, you should not feel any breast pain. While I find the cut of the pasties erotic, they are small and most likely prone to damage if not properly stored; it is best to store them in a place such a Ziploc bag which will likewise keep them free of dust. Remember to remove tape before storage. If you want more tape, you can use wig adhesive which is what many lovely ladies in burlesque to keep their nipples covered.

The packaging is one of the least discreet boxes I’ve ever seen. Sadly, I get a sick kick out of it. The box is covered in several over the top“I’m a plastic woman wearing a strap-on” shots. The model is bottle blonde with sticky lip-glossed lips, augmented breasts and false lashes. She’s quite the opposite of what I generally think of when in terms of strap-on owners.

Each part of this set comes carefully packaged in plastic which isn’t very sustainable if you like to keep your set stored in the original packaging. I’d suggest storing everything in Ziploc bags due to the nature of the items, but however you decide to store you toys is entirely up to you.
