SPOTLIGHT on Vibease

As often happens, I was recently contacted by someone wanting to tell me about an upcoming product his company was about to release. It sounded interesting so we stayed in contact. As you know, I’m always curious about new products, especially those with a special focus on women. As the crowd funding campaign on indiegogo has just been launched, I decided it was a good time to introduce you to the Vibease.

Vibease

The Vibease is novel concept. It’s a small clit vibrator that responds to its Fantasy application on your smartphone. Some of you may be saying to yourselves, “wait a second, vibrators with smartphone apps aren’t brand new.” It’s true there are other vibrators that work with a smartphone or mp3 player, but the Vibease has taken a different approach. Rather than music, the Vibease responds to an audio fantasy. You select from a list of prerecorded fantasies, and while you listen to the audio, the Vibease vibrates in conjunction with the story. The vibrations start, stop, increase, and decrease on their own as you listen to the story.

The Vibease is being touted as a wearable vibrator, which means you can pop it into your undies rather than having to hold it in place. With the Fantasy App, you can record your partner’s voice and set the vibration pattern however you’d like. You can even upload your own audio fantasies. Of course, you can use the Vibease as a standalone vibrator as well.

In addition to the Vibease Fantasy App, there is also an Intimate App, designed for long distance partners. This app allows your partner to control the vibrations of the Vibease vibrator no matter where he or she is in the world. It even includes private messaging. Considering you can wear the little vibrator, you’ll actually have your hands free to type.

The Vibease vibrator is waterproof, USB rechargeable, and made of silicone. Both Fantasy and Intimate Apps are controlled by Bluetooth technology and will be available for Android and iPhone. Android will use Bluetooth 2.1, while iPhone will use Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE). To learn more about the Vibease, check out the video below.

The Fantasy and Intimate Apps are scheduled for a September release, with the Vibease vibrator shipping in October. I love a good fantasy so I am super excited to test out the Vibease. I do not yet have it, but I have been promised the opportunity to review the Vibease, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, head over the indiegogo site and show the Vibease campaign some love.

Tantus Twist Butt Plug Review

Last month I published a Spotlight on the new Tantus Twist Butt Plug. This Spotlight followed one on the Twist’s sibling butt plugs, the Tantus Juice and the Tantus Neo. Needless to say, I have been interested in Tantus’ new butt plug releases. Thanks to the very generous people at Tantus, I have now had the opportunity to test drive the oh so curious looking Tantus Twist.

Tantus Twist Butt Plug

The Tantus Twist Butt Plug is one of Tantus’ three recently released anal toys, and in my opinion, the most interesting. There’s nothing wrong with the Juice and Neo, but they’re a more traditional take on butt plugs. I wanted to try the Twist because I did not have any experience with corkscrew-style butt plugs. I may as well let you know up front…I am a big fan. Still, let’s start with the basics.

Made from the same signature Tantus 100% Ultra-premium Platinum silicone as all their other sex toys, the Tantus Twist is latex and phthalate-free, hypoallergenic, and body-safe. Though you can use some very high quality silicone-based lubes with the Twist, unless you’re willing to spot test your lube, it’s best to stick with water-based lubricant.

With an insertable length of 4″ and a diameter of 1.3″, the Tantus Twist is on the small side, in my book. I am not suggesting beginners to anal play immediately run out and but one. In fact, I would not recommend the Tantus Twist as a first butt plug. The corkscrew provides too much texture for most beginners and may be too large in diameter. Consider starting with the Tantus Little Flirt before moving on to the Twist. I would actually suggest the Tantus Juice as a bridge between the Little Flirt and Twist, just to get a sense for texture. Not everyone like it up their butt.

The base of the Tantus Twist Butt Plug, an often overlooked but very important part of an anal toy, is well-shaped and small enough to rest along the opening of my anus without slipping in. In fact, it’s so comfortable that I had to keep checking it at first to make sure the butt plug had not accidentally slid inside.

This base is completely new and different compared to my other Tantus anal toys of earlier design. It is far smaller and thinner, with a 3″ long curved shape that rests pleasantly against my body. If you look at the base of the Tantus Ryder or Tantus Zing, you can see that earlier Tantus plugs had bases that were either rectangular or round, based on the particular plug. While I don’t have any real cause for complaint with those bases, now that I’ve experienced this new and improved super duper comfy base, I am not quite quite as fond of those anymore. Fortunately, Tantus has also produced the Juice and Neo Butt Plugs with the same base as the Twist, so if you don’t fancy a corkscrew up your butt you’ve got other options.

The Tantus Twist Butt Plug is oblong in shape, which allows it to slip inside with ease and remain comfortably in my body for long periods of time. It also has a 1″ neck that is about .75″ thick, which is plenty of room for my sphincter muscles to grab on to and keep the Twist in place.

In general, cleaning the Tantus Twist Butt Plug is pretty basic. As with all of Tantus’ sex toys without bullets, the Twist can be washed with a sex toy cleaner, soap and warm water, popped in the top drawer of your dishwasher (no soap), cleaned with a 10% bleach solution, or boiled for 3-5 minutes. Using the bleach solution and boiling the butt plug will disinfect it, allowing it to be shared between non-fluid bonded partners. If you have the desire to use the Tantus Twist vaginally, disinfecting after using it anally is a must. Even if you are the only person who utilizes the Twist, it’s a good idea to disinfect it every now and then, just to be get rid of any bacteria hanging about. As Tantus’ 100% Ultra-premium Platinum silicone is as close to non-porous as silicone can be, bacteria cannot penetrate the silicone and multiply. Thus, disinfection is not absolutely necessary, it’s just a precaution.

Regardless of how you clean your Tantus Twist Butt Plug, be sure to do so thoroughly. Though the ridges of the corkscrew are very wide and seemingly easy to clean, it is surprising how effortlessly fluids and such can hide out. As lazy as I claim to be when it comes to masturbation and cleaning up after myself, I am still very careful when it comes to washing my toys. Yet I have have to go back and re-clean my Tantus Twist on more than one occasion, even though it looked spotless when I did it the first time. This may be in part because I often let my toys air dry rather than drying them with a towel. I especially tend to air dry with silicone sex toys, and Tantus silicone, while fantastic in other areas, is usually a nightmarish lint magnet.

However, the silicone of the Tantus Twist Butt Plug is surprisingly not. Somehow, Tantus has managed to change the texture of its awesome Ultra-premium Platinum silicone. Rather than the typical draggy, lint magnet, the silicone of the Twist is incredibly soft and smooth. It doesn’t attract lint as soon as I glance at it. I can even wipe it down with a towel and NO lint. You may think I’m getting a little overly excited about this, but if you’re a fan of Tantus toys, you know their biggest issue across the board is trying to keep their silicone lint-free long enough to get the toy inside your body. This remarkable change in texture doesn’t stop there.

The silicone of the Tantus Twist Butt Plug is so soft and smooth it requires significantly less lubricant than my other Tantus sex toys, which is really saying something when it comes butt plugs. The smoothness of the Twist actually requires less lube than some of my Tantus dildos. That’s a significant improvement, and I love it. Is this the future of Tantus’ Ultra-premium Platinum silicone? Please, Tantus, let it be so!

The other big difference is obviously the shape of the Tantus Twist Butt Plug. This is my first experience with a corkscrew-like plug and I like it. When it comes to play, you certainly can slather the Twist with lube and shove it in your (or someone else’s) butt and then just yank it straight out when done. This possible, but aside from making your life harder, you’ll miss the whole point of the corkscrew.

Screwing the Twist in as if you were about to uncork a bottle of wine is a totally new and unique sensation for me. For one thing, the shape controls the speed of insertion, which is automatically far slower than a traditional plug. No matter how slowly you insert a round or oblong plug, you have that “pop” point where you lose control and it slides in on its own. Not a bad thing at all, just different. With the Tantus Twist, that point does not exist. You just keep twisting until it’s all the way in, which is a much slower process.

Drawing the process of insertion and removal out can provide an entirely different mood or affect of anal play. It forces you or your partner (or both of you) to truly savor every moment of the Tantus Twist sliding in and out. It’s definitely not a quickie butt plug that you pop in as you’re walking out the door to run errands. If you are prone to such behaviors… Even if you are not, a long, slow butt plug insertion can truly spice up play in a way you might not have imagined. I find it to be incredibly exciting. By the time the Twist is all the way in, I am far wetter than I usually am when popping in any old butt plug. It’s not just a different shape, it’s a different way to play.

Having said that, the Tantus Twist is definitely comfortable enough to wear while out and about for extended periods. The smallish diameter and oblong shape don’t cause any irritation to my sphincter muscles. I can even forget it’s there for a bit until I move in a certain way and I am gently reminded. I don’t notice the texture as much when the Twist is inside me, unless I am intentionally clenching down on it. I feel it much more during insertion and removal. In general, I do enjoy texture in my sex toys. If you do not or are particularly sensitive, I would recommend skipping the Twist in favor of the Tantus Neo, which has a very similar shape without any texture.

Tantus Twist Butt Plug Packaging, Clam Shell

The packaging of the Tantus Twist Butt Plug is typical Tantus. It comes in a clear plastic box with the Tantus red and white accents. Inside the box the Twist is clearly visible in a plastic clam shell. As always, there is some basic information about Tantus silicone, and as always, I’m grateful I don’t need to read this info in German, French, or Spanish (though I can read both the French and Spanish) because I find the white print on its clear background challenging. I do require glasses or contact lenses though, as I am blind as a bat (without the added benefit of their echolocation, damn it!), so it may just be me. As the box is totally see through and the Twist is clearly a sex toy, it is not the most discreet way to store the butt plug nor give as a gift. The fact that Tantus has printed, “the world’s best soft toys for adults” on the front certainly does not help with discreteness. While this box is not the sturdiest thing around, it does fine for storage but it takes up an unnecessary amount of room. You’re probably better off storing the Tantus Twist in a sex toy storage bag or a ziploc. Just make sure there’s not something hard pressing down on it that could damage its shape. You also want to keep your silicone toys safe from other toys made of silicone or other malleable products that might melt all over your beautiful Tantus Twist.

Tantus Twist Butt Plug Pros:
• Unusual corkscrew texture
• Ultra-premium Platinum silicone
• Well-shaped, comfortable base
• Can be worn for prolonged periods
• Can be worn during other sexual activity
• Super smooth, non-lint magnety silicone

Tantus Twist Butt Plug Cons:
• Must clean between ridges carefully
• On the small side
• May be too textured for some

Other than the fact that the Tantus Twist Butt Plug may be overly textured and/or small for some people and that you’ve got to be extra careful when cleaning, I’m hard-pressed to find anything wrong with it. Let’s face it, we’re talking about preferences and something you need to be doing anyway, so those are pretty weak downsides. If you’d like to try a corkscrew-style butt plug, you really can’t go wrong with the Tantus Twist. The only suggestion I have for Tantus is to come out with a larger size and offer a choice, like they have done for some of their other butt plugs.

In the meantime, head on over to Tantus to pick up your own Tantus Twist Butt Plug in black or purple. If you sign up for their newsletter, you’ll even get 10% off your next order.

SPOTLIGHT on New Fun Factory Ocean and Flash Vibrators

If you’ve been following Bean Fiddler for a while, you know Fun Factory is one of my favorite sex toy manufacturers. They make high quality, whimsical toys that are as fun to look at as they are to play with. They’ve been working hard on developing new toys and have released quite a few so far this year. I even reviewed one of their revolutionary new vibrators back in March, the Stronic Eins Pulsator. This week I decided to take a look at two new, recently released vibrators, the Fun Factory Ocean and the Fun Factory Flash.

 
Fun Factory Flash Vibrator

Flash

Fun Factory Ocean Vibrator

Ocean

The Fun Factory Ocean and the Fun Factory Flash are actually redesigns of previously released Fun Factory vibrators. The original Ocean and Flash vibrators, sometimes referred to as the Bimini Ocean and Bimini Flash, are part of the Click N Charge line of rechargeable vibrators. While I do prefer rechargables for a number of reasons (they are easier on the environment and less expensive over time), some people prefer using battery operated sex toys or are unable to manage the higher up front cost of the rechargeables. The advantage to battery operated vibrators is that they generally have a lower price point and you don’t have to wait on them to charge.

Of course, Fun Factory didn’t go to all the trouble of redesigning these vibrators just for the power source. The Fun Factory Ocean and Fun Factory Flash are still mini vibes, meaning they are quite a bit shorter than their larger counterparts. Both the Ocean and Flash are made of medical grade silicone, and are approximately 5.5″ long, with an insertable length of 3.5″. While that may not be enough to create the “being filled” feeling of a larger toy, it does provide some internal sensation.

As you can see, the Fun Factory Ocean and the Fun Factory Flash are rabbit vibrators, so the small insertable length provides that internal stimulation, while the little “rabbits” stimulate the clit. A good rabbit vibrator that fits your body well is a wonderful thing. The trick is finding the right one, which can require some test driving.

Apparently, this redesign includes a stronger and quieter motor, two things I strongly support. They vibrate on a deeper frequency than the previous generation, so the vibrations should be less buzzy than before. However, I don’t have either the original Ocean or Flash so I cannot speak to their level of buzziness. Both the new Ocean and Flash have 12 vibration modes, six levels of intensity and six different patterns. They are also waterproof and submersible.

If I were to get one, I would go with the Fun Factory Ocean in turquoise. I admit it’s partly because of the color and has nothing to do with the fact that with it’s curved head, the Ocean is designed for g-spot stimulation, while the Fun Factory Flash has a straight shaft. I absolutely do not recommend selecting a sex toy primarily based on looks or color, but when you have as many as I do, truthfully, that sometimes comes into play.

Don’t let my penchant for brightly colored, odd looking sex toys distract you. Fun Factory makes excellent sex toys with high quality materials. If you are looking for a small rabbit-style vibrator with a lowish price tag, check out the Fun Factory Ocean and the Fun Factory Flash. You can find them at the following stores:

Fleshlight Vortex Review

Howdy folks. Bean has the day off this week so I am bringing you all another review for the men out there. This week I am going to be reviewing the Fleshlight Vortex. I don’t want to get ahead of myself too much here but, this thing is Awesome!

Fleshlight Vortex

The Fleshlight Vortex isn’t overly impressive when you look at it. The texture doesn’t appear as if it would be overly stimulating. When compared to some of the other textures, the Vortex looks pretty tame. The Vortex does feature something that not many of the other Fleshlights have (especially at the time of the Vortex’s release) and that is an inner canal that changes diameter. Since the release of the Vortex, Fleshlight has introduced quite a few textures that feature a canal that changes sizes, especially in the Fleshlight Girls line of toys, but the Vortex was one of the first. The Vortex is available with your choice of orifice. The choices are Lady (vagina), butt, mouth and cheeks. Mine is the Lady. If you’ve never seen a Fleshlight in person before you may be surprised by the size of it. While not huge, it’s probably bigger than you expect. The Fleshlight is approximately 10 inches in length and 4 inches in diameter. It’s not so big that it’s ungainly but it still may be a bit of a shock. The good thing about the size is that it should accommodate men of all lengths.

There are two parts to all Fleshlights, the case and the insert. The Vortex insert, like all Fleshlights, is made of Fleshlight’s patented Real Feel Super Skin® material. This material is a company secret and is not used in any other line of sex toys. I can tell you that it feels quite life-like, retains heat very well, is very soft and extremely stretchy. It’s also Phthalate free. The Fleshlight case is a simple plastic case made to look like a flashlight (hence the name). The case has a cap on either end which screws on and off. The cap that covers the orifice is used just for storage but the cap on the bottom of the toy has an important function. When you tighten or loosen the cap on the bottom of the case, you adjust the amount of suction that the toy develops while you use it. This can make all the difference in the world! For me personally, with the Vortex, I like the cap quite loose. I find the Vortex feels better without a lot of suction. This is purely a personal thing though and experimentation is highly encouraged.

So, now the important part. How does the Fleshlight Vortex feel? In a word, amazing. If you read my review of the Fleshlight STU, you may remember that I stated it was my favorite sex toy. While I am not sure if the Vortex has de-throned the STU, it’s awfully close! I am not sure what it is about the Vortex that makes it feel so good, but wow, it sure does. The best word I can use to describe the sensation is “soft”. It feels like soft, luxurious, silky pillows are massaging you as you slide in an out, and the feeling is marvelous. I really, really like this toy.

Fleshlight Vortex Fleshlight Vortex Fleshlight Vortex Fleshlight Vortex

To get the most out of your Vortex, I highly recommend heating it up first. To do this, fill your sink with some hot water and let the sleeve soak for ~10 minutes. While you can use the Fleshlight at room temperature, and it still feels good, the experience is so much better when the Fleshlight is heated up. Do not use your microwave or boiling water with your Fleshlight! You could damage it or yourself. You will also need to use lube. I have found that the Vortex is quite good at retaining lube. The ridges inside do a good job of keeping the lube in place. You want to make sure that you only use water based lubricant with your Fleshlight, as an oil based lubricant will slowly destroy your Fleshlight.

My only real complaint with the Fleshlight Vortex is the same complaint that I have with every Fleshlight, prep and clean up time. To get the best results, you should really heat the Fleshlight up first, and this takes 10-15 minutes of time. This kind of kills the mood if you’re just feeling horny and want to get off. Clean up isn’t too bad either, just take your Fleshlight to the sink and run water through the inner canal liberally. Then allow to dry. After awhile you may find your Fleshlight feeling a bit sticky. To restore the regular soft feel, sprinkle a liberal amount of corn starch on the sleeve and then shake off the excess powder. While the cleanup process isn’t hard, I always feel like I should clean it right after use, and sometimes I just want to lie down and pass out.

Fleshlight Vortex Pros:
• Feels amazing, providing great orgasms
• Realistic feeling material

Fleshlight Vortex Cons:
• Prep/clean-up time

If you’re a man looking for a sex toy, or a woman looking to buy a guy a toy, you can’t go wrong with the Fleshlight Vortex. It feels absolutely amazing and has never failed to satisfy me. If you already have a Fleshlight case, then you can just buy the Vortex sleeve by itself. If you don’t have a case, I suggest you use theFleshlight Build Your Own feature on their site.

The Fleshlight Vortex is available at the following stores:

Magic Banana Review

Back in May, I posted a Spotlight on the Magic Banana Kegel Exerciser. I thought it looked really unusual and interesting, which made it a total Bean magnet. I had run across it somewhere previously online, but had forgotten all about it. Then Lovehoney started carrying it and I was given the opportunity to actually try out the Magic Banana.

Magic Banana

The Magic Banana is 9.5″ long, with 7.5″ being insertable, and is made from body-safe, medical grade, non-toxic, FDA-Approved, clear tubing on the outside, and a specially designed yellow resistance cord on the inside. The handle is made of black plastic, and the entire product is practically weightless, which is great for those with hand and wrist issues.

You can actually use the Magic Banana in multiple ways. First, it can be used as a kegel exercisor. Simply insert it into your vagina with the curve facing up, then squeeze and release on the plastic tubing. Second, you can use it for “automatic-kegels”, in which you use the black handle to move the Magic Banana slowly in and out of yourself, without removing it entirely. This will trigger your muscles to naturally expand and contract, thus causing said automatic-kegels. Perhaps the most exciting option with the Magic Banana is its third use, that of g-spot exploration. The curvy shape is ideal for hitting most women’s g-spot, while the plastic tubing is substantial enough to provide firm stimulation to the area. This is great for women with all levels of experience. G-spot newbies can use the Magic Banana to locate their g-spot. Those who already know where theirs is can practice g-spot stimulation, and more experienced users can use it in conjunction with different forms of clit stimulation to achieve multiple types of orgasms.

Strengthening the pelvic floor is beneficial for several reasons. The pelvic floor, just like all of our muscles, loses strength over time. Strong kegel muscles can assist in preventing bladder leakage that can happen as women age. They can also enhance the birthing process, and increase the length and intensity of orgasms. The act of working with the Magic Banana can actually strengthen muscles around the tailbone, which can lead to a decrease in lower back pain. Hasn’t happened for me yet, but I’m still hoping.

Kegel exercisers are not uncommon. In fact, I have reviewed the Je Joue Ami and have an upcoming LELO Luna Beads Noir review in the works. However, both of these are kegel ball sets, which is the most common type of kegel exerciser. The Magic Banana is completely new and different.

As you can see from the image above and the video below, the Magic Banana has a unique shape. Of course, it is similar in shape to a banana, though to me it looks a bit like a tiny, yellow lasso. Rather than popping a ball inside of you while you’re doing your weekly grocery shopping, the Magic Banana requires more audience participation.

The Magic Banana was designed by Janeson Raye, a yoga educator and vegetarian chef (woot). Her company is woman-owned and operated and based in Canada, where she designed the Magic Banana over a 30 year period of research and development. The materials of the Magic Banana are so strong and sturdy, that with good care practices it should last a lifetime. Ms. Raye is so confident of this, it comes with a 10 year warranty.

Speaking of such practices, the Magic Banana is very easy to care for and clean. Be sure to clean it before using it for the first time and after each use. Simply wash it with mild soap and water, dry with a soft towel, and store away from direct sunlight. This is perfect for someone like me, who is conscientious enough to take good care of my sex toys, but lazy enough to want the process to be quick and easy. As the Magic Banana is waterproof, it can be completely submersed and taken into the shower and bathtub.

In use, the Magic Banana is nothing short of surprising. It’s shocking how a bit of tubing, cord, and plastic put together in just the right way can make such a splendid sex toy/tool. As a kegel exerciser, it is very effective, though it does require me to put in some work, unlike kegel balls I can just wear around. I’m assuming the fact that I have to actively participate means the Magic Banana is also more effective. The automatic-kegel method (see above) may be easier in some ways, as it’s just a matter of slowly drawing it in and out of the body in order to activate the pelvic floor. It’s really a matter of what you prefer, intentionally squeezing down on the Magic Banana’s loop or stroking it in and out.

As a g-spot stimulator/exploratory device, the Magic Banana really shines. I had read something about the uniqueness of the Magic Banana’s sensations, but I was doubtful. Manufacturers have a tendency to exaggerate the amazingness of their products. However, I must admit the Magic Banana does deliver sensations that are not quite like those I feel with other g-spot toys. Unlike some toys that may or may not have the right angle, the curve of the tubing seems to naturally provide the perfect angle to hit my g-spot. My g-spot prefers very firm stimulation, such as glass or metal, rather than a more flexible material, so I thought this might be an issue. It is not at all. Though the tubing is bendable, it is still firm, as the tubing is really not squishy. It feels much more like fingers stroking my g-spot than a dildo or other sex toy, which really is a preferable feeling for me. Used in conjunction with a clit vibrator, the Magic Banana is pretty fantastic.

The only challenge I have with the Magic Banana is how slippery the tubing becomes when lube is applied. You obviously want to use lubricant when you are inserting objects into your body, and the Magic Banana is no exception. You can actually use either water or silicone-based lubricants with it, which is great for versatility. I find only a small amount of lube is necessary, even when using a water-based lubricant, as it spreads easily over the tubing. So easily, in fact, that gripping the curvy loop to squash it together for the purposes of insertion is difficult. My fingers are so slippery it’s hard to maintain a firm grip. This slipperyness also encourages the Magic Banana to slide out of my body easily when doing automatic-kegels.

The packaging of the Magic Banana is straight-forward and simple, like the product itself. It comes in an attractive cardboard box with a see-through plastic window. It is no way discreet, but it is not sleazy or embarrassing either. Inside the box, the Magic Banana sits in a lightweight cardboard insert, with its users guide behind it. The guide is written in English, French, and Spanish. It provides basic information abut the Magic Banana, the g-spot, and the pelvic floor muscles. I think many people will find the information contained in the guide useful, especially if they are not sexual well-being mavens. The packaging is recyclable, which along with the lack of batteries and long life, make the Magic Banana a very green product.

For those people who like their products to be endorsed by the media, the Magic Banana has been featured on Oprah.com and the Ricki Lake show, as well as numerous webzines.

Magic Banana Pros:
• Unique sensation
• Unusual shape
• Multiple uses
• Lightweight material
• Good for all experience levels
• Small eco-footprint

Magic Banana Cons:
• Slightly challenging to insert

Way back when I first saw the Magic Banana, I thought it was the weirdest kegel exerciser I had ever seen, which I liked. I thought it couldn’t be a good g-spot stimulator with its wonky looking tube. Most of all, I wondered how it could possibly be worth such a high price tag. It’s a bit of plastic with some other bits of plastic. What’s the big deal, right?

Then I used it and realized the Magic Banana is worth every penny. Granted, once it’s lubed up, it is very slippery and somewhat challenging to insert. It also can slip out easily when doing automatic-kegels, if you pull it out just a tad too far. Then you’ve got to deal with the slippery insertion all over again. However, it’s just a matter of using it enough to become accustomed to how much wiggle room you have.

The fact that it is a multipurpose tool is almost always a benefit in my mind. There are other dildos out there that can be used as kegel exercisers, and vice versa, but I have not found any that excel at both tasks. The Magic Banana is clearly not a dildo, yet it provides excellent g-spot stimulation. Surprisingly, it also allows for that oh-so-full feeling I get with a dildo or vibrator, due to the shape and internal expansion of the tubing. It feels like there is something significantly larger and more substantial inside me.

Overall, the Magic Banana is a well-designed, happy surprise that is absolutely worth the financial investment. Head on over to Lovehoney to pick up a Magic Banana of your very own.
