Shag Factory Flower Power Review

I’m not a huge fan of the traditional silver bullet. I find them boring and uninspired. However, I do like clever sex toys and bullets that are more unique interest me. I had seen these really cute Shag Factory Flower Power Bullets at ANE last year and have been curious about them ever since. PinkCherry Sex Toys was kind enough to send one to me for review.

Love Honey Shag Factory Flower Power Love Bullet

The Shag Factory Flower Power Bullet is made by Lovehoney, a British sex toy company, and comes in three colors, pink, yellow, and purple. I have the pink one, which is called Love. The Flower Power is made up of two pieces. On the inside is a pink three speed waterproof bullet. On the outside is a pink silicone sleeve, which is covered in cute little raised hearts and flowers. I love that the sleeve is silicone because silicone is latex and phthalate-free, mostly non-porous, and hypoallergenic. As the three speed bullet is waterproof, it is quite easy to care for and clean. I find the easiest thing is to simply wash it with anti-bacterial soap under warm water. Of course, you can always use a sex toy cleaner if you prefer, or spray it down with a 10% bleach solution. You can even remove the sleeve and boil it for three to five minutes or wash it in the top drawer of your dishwasher with no soap.

This is assuming you can actually get the sleeve off, which seems almost impossible to me. The Shag Factory Flower Power Bullet comes with the required three LR44 batteries which are already in the pink bullet. The bullet also has a a piece of paper in it which keeps the vibrator from turning on until you remove it. It is insanely hard to even fold the sleeve up to unscrew the bottom of the bullet. The sleeve is super thick and sturdy, which is a good thing until you want to manipulate it. Once I finally got the sleeve partially up so I could unscrew the bullet and remove the paper, I had the hardest time sliding it back down, especially because I kept accidentally turning the vibrator on. I never got it as snugly on as it was when I opened the package, but there is only so much tugging and pulling one can do.

The Shag Factory Flower Power Bullet is 2.6″ in length and 1″ in diameter. I suppose you could insert it if you want but that seems just pointless to me. This vibrator is best used to stimulate the nipples, labia, and clit. For me, it is just not an insertable. The small size of the Flower Power Bullet also makes it possible to use during penetrative sex with a partner.

As I mentioned before, the Flower Power Bullet requires three LR44 batteries, which are included. These are not my favorite batteries because I don’t have them laying about the house and they can be difficult to find. Nonetheless, they will last for about 80 minutes of use before needing to be replaced. If you ever burn out this bullet you might be able to use the sleeve on another one of the same elongated shape, but good luck getting the sleeve on!

There really isn’t a ton of drag with the silicone of the Shag Factory Flower Power’s sleeve and since I’m not using internally I really don’t need lube, my own lubrication is sufficient. Still, if you’d like it to easily slip and slide over your body, you might want to use a bit of lube. As the sleeve is silicone, be sure to use a water-based lubricant with the Flower Power rather than silicone-based lube.

The vibrations of the Shag Factory Flower Power Bullet are extremely buzzy and surfacey, not my favorite kind of vibration at all. I find these vibrations common with sex toys that use these little watch batteries. I find the first level too light to bother with, the second level is a lovely tease that I really enjoy, and the third level is so buzzy it almost hurts my nipples and clit. However, on the plus side it is easy to operate the Flower Power Bullet. The vibrator has a simple black push button on the bottom. You push the button to turn the vibrator on and off and to cycle through the three levels of vibration.

I really love the look of the Shag Factory Flower Power Bullet. It’s just adorable. It’s great that it’s waterproof and that it comes with batteries. I really like the texture of the silicone sleeve, especially the flower at the tip, which feels good against my clit. I appreciate the silicone of the sleeve and love that it is so easy to clean. What I don’t love are the vibrations. They are far too buzzy which makes it difficult for me to orgasm. My expectations of the Flower Power Bullet were probably too high, it is a bullet after all.

The packaging of the Shag Factory Flower Power is very cute and appropriate to the bullet. The vibrator comes in a small plastic pouch with decorations that remind me of the Austin Powers movie. I expect it’s supposed to make people of the sixties and it does a good job at doing so for me.

Shag Factory Flower Power Bullet Pros:
• Good texture
• Small enough to use during penetration
• Silicone sleeve
• Cute design

Shag Factory Flower Power Bullet Cons:
• Buzzy vibrations
• Sleeve is really hard to get off and on
• Hard to find batteries

The Lovehoney Shag Factory Flower Power Love Bullet is fun and cute. It’s compact so it’s easy to transport and use during sex. The silicone sleeve is easy to care for and is body-safe. The packaging is colorful and recyclable. The bullet is waterproof, which is always a good thing. Unfortunately, I just can’t get past the buzzy vibrations. I don’t enjoy them at all. I can’t imagine I’ll even use this little vibrator for 80 minutes, let alone replace the batteries. Still, it doesn’t take up much room and I like the looks so much I’ll hang on to it for now. If you like buzzy vibrations and bullets, the Flower Power is hard to beat when it comes to looks. You can find the Shag Factory Flower Power Love Bullet at PinkCherry Sex Toys. If you really like it be sure to collect all three colors as each one is slightly different.

SPOTLIGHT on Pocket Toyfriends

I have reviewed a few of the Toyfriend Vibrators and have liked almost all of them. They are fun and colorful and decently powerful for battery-operated vibrators. Toyfriend has recently released a new set of four vibrators called Pocket Toyfriends.

Pocket Toyfriends

These Pocket Toyfriends, like their predecessors, are cute and colorful and have funky shapes and names. They are called Zany, Foxy, Nice, and Posh. They remind of the Spice Girls, or at least what I remember of the Spice Girls considering I was never a fan.

Unlike previous Toyfriend lines, the Pocket Toyfriends are only one speed, which basically makes them extra cute pocket rockets. Made of colorful silicone and white ABS, these little vibrators are body-safe and will be compatible with most people. At 3.5″ long and 1″ wide, the Pocket Toyfriends truly are small enough to stick in a pocket, if that’s how you like to transport your vibrators.

The Pocket Toyfriends run on one AAA battery, which should provide good power for something of this size. Most pocket rockets run on watch batteries or other odd, less powerful batteries. The packaging of the Pocket Toyfriends looks simple though different than the packaging of the earlier Toyfriends.

You can find Pocket Toyfriends for a very reasonable price at the following stores:
Babeland
Good Vibrations

LELO SIRI Review

Recently I reviewed the LELO Nea, a small clit stimulator that I liked very much. So I decided it was time to review another LELO clit stimulator that I bought a while ago and have had laying around the house, the LELO SIRI.

LELO SIRI

As I mentioned before, the LELO SIRI is a small clitoral massager, though it’s quite a bit bigger than the LELO Nea, as you can see. Though bigger than the Nea, the LELO SIRI is still on the small side and fits easily in the palm of my hand. It is 3.75″ long and 1.75″ wide. It is made of ABS and silicone, both of which are great materials for sex toys. The silicone of the LELO SIRI is very soft and smooth, like most of LELO’s toys. It is also latex and phthalate-free, hypoallergenic, and body-safe. These materials can easily be cleaned with antibacterial soap and warm water or your favorite sex toy cleaner. The SIRI is not waterproof, so be careful when washing not to get any fluid in the charging port. You can use a 10% bleach solution on the silicone part of the SIRI, which is the colorful portion. This will sterilize the silicone so you can share your SIRI with non-fluid bonded partners.

As the SIRI is part silicone, and this is the portion you use against the body, you want to use water-based lubricant with it. Silicone-based lube can cause a negative chemical reaction in the silicone of the LELO SIRI. Though the silicone is very smooth without much drag, you might want to use a small amount of water-based lube. This way it will be nice and slippery and slidey against your clit and labia. I generally find my own lubrication sufficient, but I tend toward getting quite wet.

Like all LELO sex toys, the SIRI is rechargeable. You simply plug the charging cord into the port on the back of the vibrator. Charging takes about two hours and while charging the LED will flash white. When the charging is complete, the LED will glow steadily. When the battery is running low, SIRI will let you know with a red glow from the LED. Your two hour charge will provide you with up to four hours of play time, depending on how you use the vibrator.

The design of the LELO SIRI is simple. There are four buttons on the front of the SIRI, +, -, up arrow, and down arrow. To turn the SIRI on and increase intensity, press the + button. To turn decrease intensity and turn the SIRI off, press the – button. You can also hold the – button down for several seconds wherever you are in the stimulation modes to turn the SIRI off. The up and down arrows scroll through the pulsation patterns. When pressing a button, the white LEDs on all the buttons light up. The buttons can also be used to lock the SIRI during travel or storage so that it does not turn on accidentally. Hold down on the + and – buttons for five seconds and watch the LED light up, then turn off. When they turn off, the SIRI is locked. To unlock just do the same thing until the buttons light up again, indicating the SIRI is unlocked.

Be sure to press down firmly on the up and down arrows when scrolling through the pulsation patterns. The stimulation modes on the LELO SIRI are as follows:
1. Steady vibration
2. Slow pulse
3. Fast pulse
4. Long, slow pulse
5. Roller coaster
6. All over the place

The vibrations of the LELO SIRI are nice and deep, and relatively strong, especially for a clit vibrator. The SIRI is not terribly loud, though the person next to you might hear it if they are awake. I don’t know that it would wake anyone from a deep sleep. It certainly cannot be heard through my closed bedroom door.

I really love how the smooth silicone of the LELO SIRI feels against my skin, and I find the control panel very easy to use, even with my long nails. I find the SIRI comfortable to hold. It doesn’t make my hand cramp up or go numb from buzzy vibrations. I like the pulsation patterns quite a bit, especially number six. It’s odd but it does it for me. The SIRI easily brings me to orgasm with its strong, deep vibrations. Granted, the vibrations are not the most powerful in the world, but I find them very satisfying. The SIRI also works nicely at stimulating the nipples and labia, and the soft silicone really feels good against the skin. One thing I really love about the SIRI is that I can scroll up and down through the patterns. I don’t have to go through everything and start all over. If I skip the pattern that I want, I can just hit the down arrow and go right back to it. Overall, it’s a great little vibrator that comes in red, pink, and purple.

The packaging of the LELO SIRI is similar to the other LELO packaging I’ve seen. As I have the red SIRI, the outer box is red, with an image of the SIRI on the back. The inner box is the same hard, black box I’ve seen before. It is very sturdy and great for storage. If you don’t want to use the box you can always use the satin storage pouch included by LELO. The SIRI comes in a big plastic bubble sealed inside a cardboard envelope. Also in the box are the charger, a sample of LELO’s water-based lubricant, the one year warranty, and the user manual. The LELO SIRI also comes with a 10 year quality guarantee. If your SIRI breaks any time after the one year warranty has expired, this allows you to purchase a new LELO Pleasure Object at a 50% discount.

LELO SIRI Pros:
• Deep vibrations
• Low battery indicator
• Can scroll up and down through pulsation patterns
• Travel lock
• Soft silicone
• Rechargeable

LELO SIRI Cons:
• Not waterproof

The LELO SIRI is both pretty and functional, and it functions pretty damn well. The vibrations are deep and moderately strong. The silicone is smooth and soft. The buttons are easy to manipulate. The shape is great. It is rechargeable. There are just so many things to love about the LELO SIRI. In fact, I would give it five beans if it was waterproof. Alas, it’s not so I am subtracting one half bean. I love the travel lock, not so much because I travel frequently, but because I can lock the SIRI while I’m storing it. The SIRI comes in attractive colors. It’s one of only a few red vibrators I own as they are hard to come by. If you’re looking for a solid clit vibrator that combines form and function, I highly recommend the LELO SIRI.

You can find the LELO SIRI at the following online retailers:

SPOTLIGHT on Wonderland Collection Vibrators

I happen to really enjoy cute and funky sex toys. I like them so much better than realistic looking vibrators and dildos. Recently, a set of new vibrators came out that are based on Alice in Wonderland, which I think is a great inspiration for sex toys. The are five Wonderland Collection vibrators and while some are cuter than others, they all have their own unique charm.

The Wonderland Collection vibrators are made in the U.S. by Doc Johnson, which I think is a bonus because I prefer to buy local products in general. As I mentioned, there are five vibrators is the Wonderland collection, Pleasurepillar, Mystical Mushroom, Heavenly Heart, White Wabbit, and my favorite, Kinky Kat. All five vibrators are made of silicone with plastic handles. They are waterproof and run on one AA battery, so I’m not sure if they are very powerful. These vibrators are turned on and off by a simple push button on the bottom of the handle and they all offer steady vibrations as well as pulsation patterns.

The Wonderland Collection vibrators are colorful, unique, and fun looking. I would think they are a must for any Alice in Wonderland aficionado. They are available at several online retailers and are quite reasonable in price. Does anyone have one of these cute vibrators?

SPOTLIGHT on Sqweel 2 at Babeland

Do you all remember the Sqweel? I’ve never had the chance to review it, but it definitely is an interesting looking sex toy. It’s made by Lovehoney and has been around for a while. Lovehoney also produces Sqweelers, which are different attachments/wheels to put in your Sqweel. Now Love Honey has put out the brand new Sqweel 2, and it is currently available exclusively at Babeland.

Sqweel 2

The original Sqweel works by setting its 10 silicone “tongues” spinning against whatever part of your anatomy you choose to use it on. It was unique in that there was really nothing else quite like it on the market. Until now. The Sqweel 2 looks very similar to the original Sqweel but it comes in either black or white and has a handy dandy little cover for the Sqweel wheel. The Sqweel wheel is made of silicone and the body of the Sqweel 2 is made of hard plastic. It runs on three AAA batteries. Love Honey has made several improvements to the Sqweel 2 compared to the original. It has a new flicker mode that allows the tongues to flick against your body at variable speeds. There is a reverse rotation as well. I wonder how that feels against the clit… The Sqweel 2 provides more pressure of the tongues against your body and is meant to be very quiet. It is also splash proof so it can be used in the shower and it looks like the Sqweel 2 has a lock on it.

As I mentioned before, currently you can only get the Sqweel 2 at Babeland. From now until August 1, if you purchase the Sqweel 2 you will receive a free Sqweeler as your gift with purchase. Sqweelers run $10, so that’s a nice little bonus. Also, during the month of July you can save 20% on your entire purchase and get free shipping on your $75+ purchase with code: 75511 at checkout. So visit Babeland and check out the new Sqweel 2 today.
