SPOTLIGHT on Je Joue MiMi Soft Clit Vibrator

Two years ago, I published a Spotlight on the Je Joue MiMi. The MiMi is a small, external vibrator, designed to stimulate the clit and nipples, among other body bits. Just recently, Je Joue released a new version, called the Je Joue MiMi Soft.

Je Joue MiMi Soft Clit Vibrator

As far as the two Je Joue MiMi Vibrators go, they are very similar. In fact, in online images, I cannot tell them apart. The main difference seems to be the extra layer of squashy silicone added to the tip of the vibrator, hence the name, MiMi Soft. In addition to this new layer of silicone, Je Joue has also included another pattern, bringing the total number of patterns to six. MiMi Soft still has five levels of vibration strength and I have heard nothing about a change in the power or types of vibrations.

Still rechargeable and waterproof, and made of the same silky silicone as the other Je Joue sex toys, the Je Joue MiMi Soft seems to have only gotten better. Apparently, it also has the same three button interface as its older siblings, which admittedly, is my least favorite aspect of this family of vibrators.

I am a serious fan of Je Joue sex toys. In fact, I own all but two of them. I still have yet to review the Je Joue G-Ki, though I do have one. I also have the Je Joue Ami, the Je Joue Uma, and one of the top contenders for my favorite rabbit vibrator of the year, the Je Joue FiFi.

I do not have the Je Joue Mio, mostly because I am not terribly fond of cock rings. I also somehow never got around to picking up the original Je Joue MiMi, though I’m not entirely sure why this is as I have always wanted to try it. I am hoping this time around I have that opportunity. I am not at all patient enough to wait around until the Je Joue MiMi Soft’s third inception, if that ever happens.

You can find the Je Joue MiMi Soft Clit Vibrator at the following stores:

Nalone Pulse Sound Activated Vibrator Review

One month ago to the day, I published a Spotlight on the new Nalone Sex Toys at Lovehoney. Not long after, Lovehoney asked if I would be interested in actually reviewing one of the Nalone toys. They kindly offered me the Nalone Pulse Sound Activated Vibrator, one of the toys I had mentioned interested me the most.

Nalone Pulse Sound Activate Vibrator

If you are familiar with the OhMiBod line of vibrators, the Nalone Pulse Sound Activated Vibrator is not a completely new concept. However, while OhMiBod vibrators respond to music via an iOS app, the Nalone Pulse does not require software, and it essentially reacts to any noise loud enough for its microphone to pick up. Not too shabby.

Other than saying that the sound activation feature functions very well, I’ll leave the rest of my comments for later in the review. Let’s start with the basics. The Nalone Pulse Sound Activated Vibrator has an ABS handle and a hot pink silicone shaft. *sigh* Yet another hot pink sex toy to add to my collection.

This pink silicone is unusually sleek and smooth and does not attract lint, like many of my other silicone toys. I like that very much. It has quite a bit less drag than linty silicone toys as well. This means I don’t need as much lube as I do with those draggier toys, but I still need some.

You’ll want to stick with water-based lubricant so you don’t have any issues with silicone-based lube bonding with the shaft and making it sticky. Oil-based products will cause the silicone to break down over time (per Nalone), so they are a no no.

The Nalone Pulse Sound Activated Vibrator is 8″ long, with 5.5″ of insertable length, and is approximately 1.3″ in diameter. The curvy tip is rounded and thicker than the shaft. Depending on where your g-spot is located and/or how you angle the vibrator, you may be able to sufficiently stimulate your g-spot. I don’t actually find it that effective for g-spotting.

There is a slight ridge in either side of the Nalone Pulse’s shaft. I am pointing this out merely as a matter of interest, because while it looks nifty and I can feel it with my hand, I don’t notice at all in use.

The fact that it is waterproof makes cleaning the Nalone Pulse Vibrator easy breezy. Use warm water and mild soap, a sex toy cleaner, or a 10% bleach solution. The bleach solution will disinfect the silicone shaft and allow you to use the Nalone Pulse with non-fluid bonded partners. Of course, you can use a condom over the shaft just as easily, but not just as cheaply.

When washing your Nalone Pulse Sound Activated Vibrator, be sure to double-check that the hot pink silicone plug on the back of the handle is snug and secure in its charging port. Mine has a tendency to pop out. That little plug is what makes the vibrator waterproof. Without it tightly in place, you run the risk of water seeping in and damaging the port.

You may have noticed I just indicated that the Nalone Pulse Sound Activated Vibrator is rechargeable. It charges via the little port in back I mentioned. Nalone provides you with a USB charger, which is great, but they do not include an AC adapter so you can plug it into the wall to charge the vibrator.

I have a number of such adapters, and I suppose between iPods, iPhones, and Androids (Yep, I am totally ignoring Blackberry, but then who isn’t nowadays?), most people have at least one. It probably lowers the price point a smidge not to provide the AC adapter, but this vibrator is not cheap and how much could one cost anyway? $.05?

It’s just helpful to have the option of plugging the Nalone Pulse into the wall to charge it rather than being stuck charging your vibrator on a computer. I would think parents who may share a computer with their child/children would agree.

Though not specified in the user manual exactly how long is necessary, charging seems to take a couple of hours, and you should get up to three hours of play time on a full charge. The control panel flashes blue to let you know the vibrator charging and glows steadily when the Nalone Pulse is done.

Once you know how to use the control panel it is simple enough, but I’ll admit it took me longer than expected to figure out how to turn the damn vibrator on. I do not enjoy feeling like an idiot. Unlike any other vibrator I own (I think…I have a LOT of vibrators, so I won’t swear to it.), you’ve got to hold the power button for three seconds to turn it on.

I get having to hold the power button for three seconds to turn the vibrator off, which is indeed what you need to do with the Pulse, but why to turn it on? If I stop feeling pissy for a moment, I guess I can see the advantage that the vibrator is less likely to turn itself on accidentally by bumping into something.

Other than the three second press to turn the vibrator on, the control panel is mostly self-explanatory. The manual does explain it, if you are unable to sort it out on your own. (and there is no shame in that) It consists of a hot pink silicone circle, to match the shaft of the Nalone Pulse, with a white plastic center. In the middle of the plastic is a small hole, which is the microphone for the sound activation feature. You’ll want to make sure it is free and clear of any fingers or blankets or anything that could hamper its ability to detect sound.

There are four buttons placed around the circle. At the bottom is the power button, which is clearly marked with the universal power icon. On the top is the button that controls the strength of the vibrations. It is marked with +/- within a circle. The right side of the circle says “Manual” and controls the seven different modes of vibration, which you change by pressing the button until you get to the one you want. The left side of the circle, where it says “Music +” is basically why we are all here.

I assume the + indicates the fact that the Nalone Pulse Vibrator reacts not only to music, but to any sound picked up by the microphone. This includes voices, my fan, my phone ringing, etc. To switch to Music + or “vibrating voice” mode, you just press the button. This works whether the vibrator is in Manual or standby.

As long as the microphone is unfettered, it picks up sound very well. It responds to sharp sounds and abrupt noise the most. Music with a strong beat or a singer who hits the lyrics hard is best. It doesn’t do as well with more flowy, mellow music. It reacts adequately to voices, as well as moans and whimpers (if they are loudish).

The user manual states that the Nalone Pulse Vibrator has two sound activation or vibrating voice modes. One of these is supposed to be stronger than the other, but quite frankly, I really do not feel much of a difference. The manual also has a description of the seven vibration Manual modes, which is slightly different from mine. The list below is based on my experience, not the information in the manual.
1. Low steady vibration
2. Medium steady vibration
3. High steady vibration
4. Pulse
5. Four fast, short pulses, one long pulse
6. Ramp up
7. Three slow, short pulses, one long pulse
8. Sound activation

When it comes to actually using the Nalone Pulse Sound Activated Vibrator, it’s a mixed bag. As I stated above, I think the vibrating voice mode works very well, and the fact that it responds to almost any sound stimuli makes it much more versatile than the OhMiBod vibrators (and way cooler).

Though the sound activation component of the Nalone Pulse is effective, I have to say it’s frustrating when a lack of sound disrupts the vibration. This may happen frequently, depending on what you are using to trigger it. Someone speaking (or moaning) is going to have far more gaps than loud music with a heavy beat.

It would be really great if you could somehow use the vibrating voice feature at the same time as manual mode. Then you would have a constant underlying vibration that would increase with sound, rather than than the vibrator going completely dead here and there.

The Nalone Pulse is very quiet. I tend to be suspicious when vibrators make claims about how silent they are, especially when the term “whisper quiet” is used to describe them. However, I’ve got to say this vibrator is quite muted, at approximately 50 decibels. To put this into perspective, a whisper is about 40 decibels, the hum of a refrigerator is around 50, and rainfall clocks in at up to 60 decibels.

I mention the actual decibels because Nalone makes a big deal about it. Of course, Doubting Thomas that I am, I expected the vibrator would actually be on the loud side, but it isn’t. While not quiet as a whisper, for a vibrator, it’s awfully close. Especially considering the Nalone Pulse is a full-sized vibrator and not a dinky little clit vibe.

Moving on to the less thrilling aspects of the Nalone Pulse Sound Activated Vibrator, the vibrations. It’s not that they’re bad, they’re not. They are just…meh. They are midrange in depth, neither light and buzzy, nor deep and throbby. I can get off with them, they don’t hurt my clit, and they don’t give me buzzy hand syndrome. Nonetheless, if you really want and/or NEED deep vibrations, you are not likely to be very happy.

When it comes to the strength of the vibrations, it’s the same story. They are only moderate in intensity. Again, I can orgasm with the Nalone Pulse, but it takes longer than I would like. It’s certainly not a vibrator I’d use when I’m in a hurry or would turn to in a pinch. If you require power, you won’t find it here.

The packaging for the Nalone Pulse Sound Activated Vibrator is somewhat indiscreet, but quite sturdy. There is an exterior sleeve with images of the vibrator and a basic rundown of its features. Inside the sleeve is a shimmery pink box that says Nalone in the bottom right corner.

This box is fine to leave laying around as it gives no indication of what it is hiding. Inside the box, the Nalone Pulse Vibrator reclines on a fitted styrofoam bed covered with cream-colored satin. At the base of the vibrator is a box containing the USB charger, purple storage bag, user manual, and warranty card. The presentation is lovely. Unfortunately, the styrofoam is securely glued into the bottom of the box and I cannot remove it. I would have like to use it to store a few things along with the Nalone Pulse.

Crammed into the lid of the box is a pamphlet with the Nalone line of sex toys. The images are good to look at but don’t do your shopping based on it. At least for the Pulse Sound Activated Vibrator, it lists some incorrect information. You’re better off getting details on the Nalone sex toys from Lovehoney.

The user manual, which is written in English only, provides all the important information, other than actually telling you how long it needs to charge to reach full capacity. Unless it’s one of those weird things where you’re supposed to leave it on the charger for 16 hours or something the very first time, I wouldn’t worry too much. It only took me a few hours charging it via my computer.

The thing that kills me about the manual is that the print is microscopic. Granted, I started wearing glasses at age five and am seriously blind, but I’m not crazy blind! It should not be that hard for me to read the manual in broad daylight. Now, I feel really, really old. Way to go, Nalone.

Nalone Pulse Sound Activated Vibrator Pros:
• Sound Activated feature
• Quiet
• Silicone
• Lightweight
• Waterproof
• Easy to use control panel
• Not a lint magnet
• Rechargeable
• Nice shape
• Charges via USB

Nalone Pulse Sound Activated Vibrator Cons:
• Midrange vibrations (not deep enough)
• Not very powerful
• No AC charger included
• Have to hold down for 3 seconds to turn on

If you take a look at my pros and cons lists, it would seem like the pros far outweigh the cons, thus earning the Nalone Pulse Vibrator a high bean score. However, we’ve got to look closely at the importance of the qualities on each list. Sure, what material the vibrator is made from and whether or not it’s waterproof, rechargeable, and easy to use all matter.

Let’s face it though, these days I’m even more selective about what sorts of materials I’ll put into my body, not that I was ever that lackadaisical. I prefer rechargeable vibrators that are waterproof, but I still use some that are neither.

Though noise is not a big problem for me, it is for many people. So, the fact that the Nalone Pulse Vibrator is super quiet is a big deal. If you have a partner or roommate who is a heavy sleeper, you can literally use this vibrator without waking them up.

The weight of a sex toy sometimes has an impact on my play, depending on how badly my body is behaving at any given moment. Some of my sex toys are too hefty at certain times and I must turn to other, lighter ones. I am by far not the only person out there who needs to be aware of this. Therefore, the lightweightness (I don’t feel good about myself if I don’t make up at least one word every week.) of the Nalone Pulse makes it more versatile and useable by more people.

It’s always tricky when it comes to rating a sex toy with significant pros and cons. Sometimes I bounce back and forth doing the whole “but on the other hand” thing, until I have way too many hands. The Nalone Pulse isn’t quite that bad, as it really is a matter of two key concerns, the sound activation feature and the vibrations. Obviously, these issues are intertwined, considering that the vibrating voice element is dependent upon the vibrations.

As I have clearly stated, though I’d like the sound activation to do something it is not capable of (Remember, my constant, underlying vibration with the sound activation increasing the power idea.), it does an excellent job of doing what it claims to do. It reacts to any noise that is audible enough. Good on you for that, Nalone.

The vibrations themselves though… They are not quite deserving of a throat punch, they are more NCIS Gibbs slap on the back of the head worthy. Yes, I can orgasm with this vibrator, which is ultimately the point, but the vibrations are still meh. Who wants a vibrator with meh vibrations though? The vibrations are simply not good enough for me to jump and down in excitement, especially for sex toy at this price point. I want them to be deeper in frequency and more powerful.

That being said, if you have a delicate clit and cannot handle very strong vibrators (These women totally exist.), the sound activation certainly makes the Nalone Pulse Vibrator completely worthwhile. The middle of the road depth of the vibrations is more forgivable and easier to work with in my mind, as this is often less of an issue than power.

Though I am disappointed in the vibrations, the vibrating voice aspect is effective enough to push the Nalone Pulse Sound Activated Vibrator just beyond the edge of average, earning this vibrator a rating of three beans.

Tomorrow is Halloween, my favorite holiday. Lovehoney has a number of specials going on right now, which you can take a look at on the Bean Fiddler Deals & Sales Page. It’s an excellent time to head on over and take advantage of their free shipping, with no minimum purchase.

SPOTLIGHT on Tenga Vi-Bo

When I sat down to write this Spotlight, I was in the mood for a brand new toy. I went trolling around looking for something I hadn’t seen before and ran across the Tenga Vi-Bo Vibrators.

Tenga Vi-Bo Vibrators

If you recall, back in August, I reviewed the Iroha YUKI. Iroha is a line of vibrators for women, created by Tenga, which has traditionally produced sex toys for men. I was pleased to see Tenga’s foray into the world of women’s toys, and now it appears they are taking on couples’ toys. Sort of….

Tenga Vi-Bo is a collection of five small vibrators that are intended to be used “as a tool for two people to stimulate each other, for greater communication to support coupled intimacy”. Sounds like Tenga is trying to stimulate conversations about getting off between people who may not be communicating clearly, which I fully support. However, I feel like they can do this with sex toys that seem less…silly.

If you read Bean Fiddler, you know I’m all about colorful, odd, and quirky sex toys, but these are hard to take very seriously. Of course, I am experienced user of sex toys, which is not the case for all people. With Tenga Vi-Bo, I imagine Tenga is reaching out to the younger and new to sex toys crowd, much like the LELO PicoBong line. While I am all for this idea, I am not sure how successful it will be with the Tenga Vi-Bo Vibrators.

You can watch the video below to learn a bit about the Tenga Vi-Bo Vibrators, but I don’t actually recommend it. It’s pretty pointless. Still, I felt like I had to include it.

 


 

The Tenga Vi-Bo line consists of small vibrating orbs in five different sheaths. Each orb is approximately 3 cm (or 1.18″) in diameter, which is awfully tiny, and encased in a differently shaped and colored elastomer cover. The orbs are removable for purposes of cleaning and changing of batteries. Unfortunately, these little vibrators run on three LR44 batteries, which are not only challenging to find, they tend to provide light and buzzy vibrations. So thus far, Tenga has not persuaded me these are something I want to try.

Taking a closer look at each of the different Tenga Vi-Bo Vibrators, is visually pleasing, but still does not convince me I am going to like those little vibrating orbs.

Tenga Vi-Bo Finger Orb

Finger Orb

Finger Orb: This orange orb is meant to fit on the finger and add some vibration to touch, somewhat like the Jimmyjane Hello Touch, I suppose.

Tenga Vi-Bo Ring Orb

Ring Orb

Ring Orb: Basically, a blue cock ring, though when I first saw it, I thought it was also meant to fit on the finger. It looks quite stretchy, but I have no dimensions.

Tenga Vi-Bo Hand Orb

Hand Orb

Hand Orb: This pink sheath is the oddest one and, of course, it interests me the most. You wear this Vi-Bo Vibrator with a finger in each loop, stretched across your hand. The design seems like it could be very good for nipple stimulation.

Tenga Vi-Bo Twin Orb

Twin Orb

Twin Orb: The orb at either end of the flexible, yellow elastomer can likely be used to stimulate the clit and labia at the same time. It doesn’t look long enough to provide much versatility though.

Tenga Vi-Bo Stick Orb

Stick Orb

Stick Orb: This purple sheath boasts two vibrating orbs, one on top of the other. I guess the third hole provides the option of moving the orbs around or using it as a handle. I expect you can insert this Vi-Bo Vibrator slightly, but I’m not sure how deeply it will penetrate.

The tagline for the Tenga Vi-Bo line of vibrators is “Orbs of fun for everyone”, which is clearly supportive of the idea that these odd, little vibrators are directed toward the newbie crowd.

For some reason, the colors and designs remind me of Play-Doh, which instantly makes me want to put them in my mouth. Yes, I have tasted Play-Doh, and still remember how awful it tastes. While that stops me from actually sticking in my mouth if given the opportunity, it doesn’t quash the desire.

I think the colorful and funky looking designs of the Tenga Vi-Bo Vibrators will be attractive to some people. My concern is whether or not the vibrations will ultimately be strong and satisfying enough. You don’t want to draw in new, inexperienced people to try a sex toy, only to have it be a complete downer and cause them to lose interest. If it turns out that the Tenga Vi-Bo Vibrators become stepping stones to bigger and better sex toys, that would be great, but I have my doubts.

Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Rechargeable Silicone Vibrator Review

I was scrolling through Bean Fiddler recently and I was surprised to see that the last time I reviewed a rabbit vibrator was way back in June. That may not seem like a long time, but as someone who really likes rabbit vibes, I tend to review them frequently.

Deciding it was time for another rabbit review, recently receiving the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Rechargeable Silicone Vibrator was rather timely. I know I mention this almost every time I review a Lovehoney sex toy, but why oh why must the names of their products be soooooo long? Is it really necessary? I’m just wondering if there is something I am missing here…

Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Rechargeable Silicone Vibrator

As has occurred in the past, though I knew the specs of the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Rechargeable Silicone Vibrator before it arrived, I was surprised by its size. I don’t know how this continues happening. It’s true I don’t have very good spatial sense, but by now you’d think I know what a 9.5″ long vibrator will look like. Apparently not. Part of what surprised me (and yes, I know you can see it in the images on the Lovehoney site) is that the base of the vibrator is flat. The Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural, like the other vibrators in the Happy Rabbit product line, can actually stand upright completely on its own.

You might think this no big deal, but as a matter of fact, it’s quite convenient. It means that before and/or after use, I can stand the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator up on my bedside or coffee table without worrying about it rolling off and onto the floor, which happens ALL the time with my sex toys. Yes, I’m going to wash it so it’s not the end of the world, but I’m a big supporter of anything that makes my life easier.

Speaking of washing, caring for the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator is relatively easy. I use the word “relatively” because the Happy Rabbit is not waterproof, it is splash proof. I am assuming this is due to the charging port on the back of the base of the vibrator. It does have a cover, so be sure that is securely fastened when rinsing the Happy Rabbit. Both the silicone and ABS can be cleaned with warm water and mild soap or a sex toy cleaner. The silicone shaft and clit bunny can also be disinfected with a 10% bleach solution. This process will allow you to safely use the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator with non-fluid bonded partners.

As I mentioned above, there is a charging port of the back of the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator, so obviously this vibrator is rechargeable. Charging it is easy enough. You just gently pull aside the white port cover and plug the charging cable into the vibrator. The Happy Rabbit comes only with an AC adapter so it cannot be charged via USB, like some of my other rechargeable vibrators.

An initial six hour charge is required for the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator to be at full capacity, and this charge should be good for up to two hours of play time. Above the charging port on the back of the vibrator, there is a small LED that glows red during charging and turns green to let you know charging is complete.

As well as being 9.5″ long, with an insertable 5.5″, the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator is approximately 1.5″ in diameter. This, along with the rabbit attachment that sticks out quite a bit from the shaft of the vibrator, helps make it seem larger than it really is. Don’t misunderstand me though, it is a large vibrator.

You can see in the images that the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Rechargeable Silicone Vibrator is made of hot pink silicone. The hot pink silicone of the Happy Rabbit’s shaft and clit stimulator attachment matches the hot pink plastic of the control panel buttons.

This hot pink silicone has a smoother and slightly more rubbery texture than some of my other silicone sex toys. Its drag level is about middling and it definitely requires more than a drop of water-based lubricant. Don’t dump the lube on, but be liberal in your application. You’re best off sticking with a water-based lubricant, as a silicone-based one could react negatively with the silicone of the vibrator. Of course, the silicone is latex and phthalate-free, hypoallergenic and body-safe.

The shaft of the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Rechargeable Silicone Vibrator has a slight curve to it, though it’s not nearly as extreme as the curve on the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit G-Spot Rechargeable Silicone Vibrator. This curved head is also slightly thicker than the rest of the insertable part of the shaft and has some flexibility. The rabbit clit attachment has a well-defined nose, but no other facial features.

The ears are super bendy, and there is just a slight amount of movement allowed at the base of the clit attacdhment, so you don’t have much leeway to adjust it if the Happy Rabbit Vibrator doesn’t fit your body quite right. There are seams all around the shaft and clit stimulator that are easily felt with fingers, but provide no clue to their existence when the vibrator is in use.

The control panel of the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator is simple and straightforward. It consists of two buttons, a small round one and a larger oblong one just above, making the controls look like an exclamation point. The small, round button controls the bunny ears, which have three levels of intensity. The larger, oblong button controls the five vibration patterns in the shaft. They are as follows:
1. Low steady vibration
2. Medium steady vibration
3. High steady vibration
4. Fast ramp up
5. Alternating pulses between bunny ears and shaft

To turn on either function, just press the corresponding button. Continue pressing to scroll through the options for each segment of the vibrator. To turn off either function, press and hold the corresponding button briefly. The two parts of the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator can be used separately or simultaneously. The motor in the shaft has a memory chip, so when you turn it on it will start at the same pattern it was on when you turned it off.

There is no back button, so if you miss the mode you want, you have to keep pressing until you come back to it. While it only has three levels of power and five patterns, I don’t really find this to be a problem. It’s not like having to scroll through 10 or 11 modes, but it is always nice to have a back button. Nevertheless, I do like the simplicity of the Happy Rabbit Vibrator’s control panel.

The control panel is very simple to use during play. The different shape of the buttons makes it easy to tell them apart by touch, and they don’t require a ton of pressure to activate. I thought the flatness of the base of the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator might feel odd during use, but I don’t notice it all. The base just feels sturdy and comfortable in my hand. However, it is slightly heaver than some of my other vibrators, so people with serious hand issues may have some trouble with it.

I would not call the vibrations of the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator quiet, per se, but for a rabbit vibrator, they really are not loud. You might need a bit of cover noise if someone is sitting completely silently in the next room, reading or something, but otherwise, an average bedroom door should be sufficient to cover up the sound.

When I first turned the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator on, I was a bit disappointed in the vibrations. They felt higher-pitched than I was expecting. However, it turns out they really aren’t that light. The vibrations in the shaft are fairly deep and rumbly. The bunny ears are not quite as deep as the shaft, more middle of the road, but definitely not even close to being buzzy.

As far as power goes, the vibrations of the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator are strong, and get me off quickly and easily. It’s not a powerhouse of a vibrator, but for many people, the strength of the vibrations will be more than sufficient. The five different modes are more or less standard, but I really like the last one, with the alternating pulses between the shaft and the bunny ears.

In general, the shape of the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator works well for my body, but it’s not ideal. The rabbit attachment is slightly too far away from the shaft, as well as my body, but only by a little bit. It’s really where the bunny ears hit that is an issue. They hit somewhat high on me, so rather than surrounding my clit, they’re almost above it. I’m still getting sufficient vibration because my clit is resting on top of the bunny head, but I would prefer to have more ear action there. Basically, if the rabbit attachment was a tad lower down on the shaft and a scosh closer to it, the fit would be pretty perfect.

Though close in color and size to the Lovehoney Realistic Oh! Rabbit Vibrator, the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator is quite a bit different from its sibling. The Happy Rabbit is rechargeable, with dual vibrating motors, while the Realistic Oh! Rabbit uses three AA batteries and has a rotating shaft. The Happy Rabbit is only splash proof and the Realistic Oh! Rabbit is waterproof, but both vibrators are easy to use and can stand up on their flat bases.

The packaging of the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Rechargeable Silicone Vibrator is much nicer than I was expecting, based on prior experience with Lovehoney products. This is not to say their packaging is crappy, it’s just usually simple and is not a good long-term storage option.

On the exterior of the box, is a cardboard sleeve with images of the vibrator and some useful information, so as usual, it’s not discreet. However, once you remove this sleeve you get to the delicious, crunchy center of the packaging, which is a super sturdy, black box with an exclamation point and the words “get happy”, along with the Lovehoney logo, on the front.

This box is awesome. It’s sturdier than a shoe box. While it’s on the large side to use for storing just one vibrator, it makes great storage for multiples or other items. Inside the box, the Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator sits in a throwaway, black plastic cutout. Underneath the cutout is the charger, brief instruction manual, and good quality, black satin storage pouch. The instruction manual is very basic, but between it and the outer sleeve, sufficient information is provided.

Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Rechargeable Silicone Vibrator Pros:
• Decent fit
• Dual motors
• Strong vibrations
• Deepish vibrations
• Silicone
• Rechargeable
• Flat bottom, can stand on its own
• Easy to use control panel
• Good pattern

Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Rechargeable Silicone Vibrator Cons:
• Splash proof rather than waterproof

Overall, I am quite….er….happy with the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator. It has a ton of good qualities, such as the dual motors, strong vibrations, and is a fairly good fit for my body. Of course, I like that it’s rechargeable, and I actually love the flat, standup base. The control panel is also more than adequate.

The only major downside I see to the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator is the fact that it’s splash proof, rather than waterproof. I think it would actually qualify as right in between if there was something in between the two. Not quite submersible-proof? The charging port cover will do a good job of keeping the port dry, as long as it is securely fastened. I just think Lovehoney really doesn’t want you submersing the vibrator because too much moisture will kill that port. However, it certainly has more protection than many splash proof vibrators.

I like the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator and can orgasm easily with it. The fit could be better for me and it’s not “OMG, best rabbit vibrator ever!” great, but it is a good, solid choice in a rechargeable rabbit vibrator.

When you consider the fact that Lovehoney offers Free shipping all the time, on ALL orders, and that they have a pretty fabulous Return and Refund Policy, this vibrator should be fairly high on your list. After all, if it’s not the right fit, you can always send it back and pick out something else.

I am giving the Lovehoney Happy Rabbit Natural Vibrator the same four bean rating I gave the Lovehoney Realistic Oh! Rabbit Vibrator. I like both of them for different reasons and can easily recommend either one, depending upon your needs and desires.

Tantus Max O2 Dual Density Dildo Review

About two years or so ago, Tantus came out with a new line of dildos with the label “O2″ tacked onto their names. What makes these O2 dildos different from the others is the fact that they are dual density, with the intention of feeling more life-like. In other words, the Tantus O2 Dildos have two completely different layers, a firm inner core and a softer, squishier exterior.

As those of you who read Bean Fiddler regularly know, I prefer weird, colorful, fantasy-like sex toys to those that are realistic in appearance. However, I am definitely not opposed to something that feels realistic, and I always like trying new sex toy technology. So, I was excited with the opportunity to review my very first dual density dildo last year, the Tantus Cush O2 Dildo.

Since then, Tantus has continued to introduce new dildos to the O2 line, and I have continued to covet them. The problem has been that almost all of the newer O2 Dildos are realistic looking. Eeeewwww. I finally accepted that Tantus was not going to make any new odd and colorful dual density dildos in the near future just for me, so I’d better suck up my weirdness about life-like looking sex toys if I wanted to try more of them. Think about it though. Wouldn’t an O2 Dildo in the color scheme of the Tantus Rocket be awesome?

Anyway, this is where the Tantus Max O2 Dildo comes in.

Tantus Max O2 Dual Density Dildo

After getting over my huffiness at the world not responding to my every whim, I realized I was lucky. Tantus actually sent me the Tantus Max O2 Dildo in black, as in pitch black, the color of Martin Gore’s nail polish. If you don’t know who Martin Gore (Depeche Mode) is, I weep for you, but I will forgive you.

My point is that with the level of pure blackness, I don’t get all squicked by the idea that the Tantus Max O2 is some sort of freaky dismembered penis. The color is not at all life-like to me, unlike the other colors Max O2 is available in, Cream and Cocoa. As a side note, I do want to give props to Tantus for choosing foods to describe their dildos, rather than “skin color”.

Once I made a mental shift and could ignore the fact that the Tantus Max O2 qualifies as a realistic sex toy, I could thoroughly enjoy it in all its glorious detail, and there is quite a bit. You might not realize it, but this dildo has some serious design elements.

First off, there is the head of the Tantus Max O2 Dildo. While not as pronounced as the coronal ridge of the Tantus Cush, Max has a large and obvious head, with realistic wrinkles around its base and a very defined frenulum. Max’s shaft has clearly delineated, not to mention large, veins running up and down its sides. Even though I whine about my issues with realistic sex toys, somehow I really admire these details.

One of the reasons I really wanted to review the Tantus Max O2 Dildo, as opposed to one of the other O2 Dildos, such as Mikey O2 or Mark O2, is because of the testicles. Yep, the girl who gets so weirded out by realistic toys, wanted balls attached to her dildo. The Tantus Max is actually my first testicled (totally a word) dildo. I thought it might be an interesting change, and I was right. I am loving these half-balls. Does that make them kinda like Half Man Tyrion Lannister?

Other than the shape and placement of these halved testicles, they really aren’t life-like. They are perfectly sized and proportioned, unlike any man I’ve ever seen. In consistency, they feel very much like the tip of the head of the Tantus Max O2, which is to say they are squishier than the rest of the dildo.

The dual density texture of the Max O2 is really interesting, and I would say, very successful. For those of you who have experience with a real live penis, you know that when they are erect they are not totally and completely hard, like many silicone dildos. Much like the Tantus O2 Dildos, they actually are significantly softer on the outside than on the inside, the opposite of a Tootsie Pop.

The outer layer of silicone on the shaft of the Tantus Max O2 Dildo is squashy and has a ton of give. Once I start squeezing it with some pressure, I hit that firm inner core, and I can really feel the difference between the two. While there is still some give to the inside of the Max O2, it is so much more rigid than the outside. It is a bit like biting into a frozen Three Musketeers candy bar. Your teeth penetrate the chocolate easily, then hit the nougat and just stop. It feels pretty fantastic. I am referring to Max’s dual density silicone, not the Three Musketeers.

In regards to the actual silicone of the Tantus Max O2 Dildo, it is the same 100% Ultra-Premium Platinum Silicone that Tantus uses in all their products. Not all silicone is created equal, and this particular grade of silicone is of the highest quality. Like all silicone, it is latex and phthalate-free, hypoallergenic, and body-safe.

In addition to being some of the highest quality silicone available for sex toys, which is fabulous, Tantus silicone has two features that I do not love. Most of my Tantus products attract so much dust and lint, I could almost use them as actual lint brushes. If I dry my Max O2 Dildo with any sort of towel after cleaning, it looks like it’s just gone through the dryer with a load of towels. If you look closely at the images, you can see lint everywhere. It’s just frustrating to feel like right after I wash it, I have to hurry and slap on lube and get the dildo inside of me before it dries.

As far as the washing goes, it’s easy and you have multiple options. You can use warm water and soap, which is usually what I do. You can also go with a sex toy cleaner, pop it in the top drawer of the dishwasher and run it through without soap, use a 10% bleach solution, or boil it for 3-5 minutes. Both the bleach solution and boiling will disinfect the Tantus Max O2 Dildo so you can use it with non-fluid bonded partners or go from anal to vaginal use, after disinfection.

You can use this dildo anally if you desire, as the testicles provide a guarantee that the Max O2 won’t slip up inside your anus. The testicles also allow the Tantus Max O2 to be used with a harness, but as I do not currently participate in harness play, I really cannot tell you which ones would work best.

The other quality of Tantus silicone that I don’t love, though I am not really bothered by it, is that the silicone is super draggy. Not a big deal, it just means I need to use much more lubricant with the Tantus Max O2 Dildo than with some of my other sex toys. However, while I find that I need to start out with more lube in the beginning, the Max O2 really doesn’t suck it up like I thought it might, at least with a high quality lubricant, like Sliquid Sea or Good Clean Love.

The Tantus Max O2 Dildo is more or less the same as the Tantus Luke O2, though Max provides an additional inch in length, making it a full 6.5″ long. Length is something I care far less about than girth. Of course, length matters to a degree (sorry to say it, but size does matter), but as I do not like having my cervix rammed with any objects, I’m never looking for the longest dildo in the world. Girth, on the other hand, is something I really notice.

The 2″ in diameter offered by the Tantus Max O2 Dildo will definitely be too much for some people, but I love it. It’s not something I want every day because my body likes variety and changes throughout the month, but when I’m in the mood for girth, Max’s 2″ do a great job at satisfying that craving.

I really love the the external layer of squishy silicone, which Tantus calls Super Soft™. Not only does Max O2 feel different in my hand, but I can tell the difference inside of me as well. The dual density design of the Tantus O2 Dildos is awesome. It really does feel more like a real live penis inside of me than a regular old dildo without extra layer.

Some of you may have heard of Vixen Creations and their dual density VixSkin, and are wondering how the Tantus Max O2 compares. After reviewing the VixSkin Maverick Dildo, it seems to me that it has a thicker layer of smush around the firm inner core, and that the core itself feels slightly softer than that of the Max O2.

As far as the testicles go, I LOVE them. They provide me with a perfect way to comfortably hold and thrust the Tantus Max O2 Dildo. They keep my hand from slipping off, even when the dildo gets drenched with lube and bodily fluids.

However, I actually find it most workable to use the Max O2 upside down, meaning I hold the dildo with the testicles facing up rather than down. I’m no doctor, but I am absolutely certain I have never seen a man who has testicles above, rather than below, his penis. As a side note, I don’t think I have ever used the word “testicles” so many times in such a short period in my life.

When I place the Tantus Max O2 Dildo on a flat surface, the testicles actually do not lay flat, which makes the dildo a bit wobbly. It’s not an issue or anything, I’m just saying that the Max O2 may not make the best dashboard ornament. The head of my Max leans slightly to the right (or left, depending on how you’re viewing it), which kinda cracks me up, as most men’s penises are not perfectly straight. Good on Tantus for that.

As Tantus was kind enough to send me a product sample for review, my Tantus Max O2 did not arrive in any packaging, save a discreet shipping box and brown paper. However, I have reviewed enough Tantus sex toys, to know what the packaging would be like. All of the Tantus products I have reviewed thus far, have been in the exact same type of packaging, and you can check out any of those reviews for a description of said packaging, as well as images.

Tantus Max O2 Dual Density Dildo Pros:
• Tantus Platinum Silicone
• Dual density texture feels very life-like
• Girthy
• Testicles make a very good handle
• Great details
• Harness compatible

Tantus Max O2 Dual Density Dildo
• Lint magnet
• Might be too girthy for some

If I haven’t already made it clear throughout this review, let me do so now. I love the Tantus Max O2 Dual Density Dildo. The dual density Super Soft™ Ultra-Premium Platinum silicone feels so different and wonderful inside my body. As it moves in and out of me, while I clamp down upon it, the dual density provides a more visceral sensation somehow.

The testicles make a fantastic hand hold for easier thrusting, even I do hold the dildo upside down, and the 2″ girth works great for me. I’m actually thinking I might need to try a thicker dual density dildo. Tantus, we need to talk!

The lint magnet issue is irksome, but not enough to kill my enthusiasm for this dildo. I can live with having to use it wet. Washing the Max O2 right before use is a good idea anyway. Not having to dry it before slapping on some lube just saves me 25 seconds.

I realize the girthiness of this dildo might be too much for some, but if you enjoy girth or are ready to size up, the Tantus Max O2 Dildo is the way to go. However, if you are concerned about the 6.5″ length, you can always go with the Tantus Luke O2 Dildo instead. I don’t think you can go wrong with either one.
