SPOTLIGHT on BS Atelier Handmade Sex Toys

I was reading an article on She Bop’s Blog about their 2014 Valentine’s Day picks when I found a brand of very colorful dildos I hadn’t seen before. You all know how crazy I am for vibrant and unusual sex toys. So, I did some research to see what I could learn about this explosion of color on my computer screen.

It turns out that BS Atelier is the company responsible for these curiously colorful sex toys that are now being carried by two of my favorite sex shops, She Bop and SheVibe.

BS Atelier DIldos

BS Atelier is a Spanish company, based in Madrid. I think this may be the first Spanish sex toy manufacturer I’ve run across. Their main website is in Spanish and their English website also has Spanish descriptions. Having lived in Madrid for a brief period a number of years ago, I felt an unexpected kinship with BS Atelier as I explored their collections.

With an unexpectedly large variety of sex toys (for a company I’ve never heard of), BS Atelier makes more than splashy dildos. They also design cock rings, butt plugs, and harnesses for their harness-compatible toys. I can’t be certain, but based on the images I’ve seen, it appears as though all of their insertables have an appropriate base for a harness.

BS Atelier uses 100% medical-grade silicone and medical-grade pigments. I’ve never seen a company specify the quality of their pigments, but it makes a lot of sense. The ingredients of the pigments could theoretically impact your body as much as the other materials in the toy. Many of their sex toys are available in up to three sizes, small, medium, and large.

Every dildo, butt plug, and cock ring is individually hand-poured in Madrid, ensuring that each BS Atelier sex toy is locally made and one of a kind. They currently have four lines of dildos, two of which are also labelled as butt toys. There are two different prostate stimulator shapes and two separate butt plug models, not including the aforementioned dildos that do double duty. Heh.

It appears as though BS Atelier is branching out from their focus on elegant, multicolored designs. They also manufacture a “Kit Pelvic Floor”, what is often referred to as a dilation kit. It consists of a series of six straight dildos that increase in length and girth as you work your way up the ladder.

Considering, you have to purchase each of the bright turquoise (yes!) dildos separately, it’s technically not a kit. Nevertheless, I appreciate that the company actually worked with specialists in the field of gynecology and physiotherapy to come up with a product that focuses on sexual health.

BS Atelier even makes a set of leather restraints that can be attached to each other to form handcuffs. I was more than a little amused upon realizing that the Spanish word for restraint/handcuffs also means “wives”. In light of the still powerfully traditional, patriarchal culture in Spain, it’s not overly surprising.

She Bop currently carries the BS Atelier G-Spot in Rainbow, Vaca (Spanish word for cow), and Custom Lines. They are reportedly waiting for the Alex Dildo with hearts, available in two color combinations. Seeing as it’s already February 7, I’m not sure they’ll have them in time for Valentine’s Day.

SheVibe has a larger selection of BS Atelier G-Spot dildos, but they have given a few of them slightly different names, such as the O2 and Sport. Others, like the White Tiger and Zebra, are sold with their BS Atelier names. They also carry the BS Atelier medium size Tente Butt Plug (which BS Atelier characterizes as a p-spot toy) in two colors.

Why is no one carrying the BS Atelier G-Spot Lines Tokyo?? I just really like its stripey colors. Neither She Bop nor SheVibe are carrying the BS Atelier Alex Dildos yet. While I find the shape of the BS Atelier G-Spot Dildo more aesthetically pleasing, the Alex is available in two very cool designs, Alex Noise Light Blue and Alex Noise Light Grey.

The BS Atelier Tente Butt Plug, obtainable at SheVibe, has a unique shape and angle. It looks very much like an off-centered egg resting on a stand. I can see it being effective for both g-spotting, p-spotting, and butt plugging. However, I am more curious about the BS Atelier Capsula, which I haven’t found anywhere other than the company’s website thus far.

BS Atelier Capsula Butt Plug


The Capsula is also listed under p-spot toys, though oddly enough the description on its web page refers to it as a vaginal toy and doesn’t even mention anal use. It has an unusual capsule-like shape and sits at an angle on its stem, just like the Tente. I definitely do not own any butt plugs that look like either one of these.

Cruising the BS Atelier websites has been a fun and not so gentle reminder that I really need to brush up on my Spanish. Though I comprehended much more than I had expected, foreign languages truly are one of those “use it or lose it” skills.

I am going to see what I can do about getting my hands on a few of these BS Atelier sex toys. At the very least, I’d love to test a BS Atelier G-Spot Dildo and either the Capsula or Tente Butt Plug.

Has anyone tried one of these sex toys? If so, leave a comment and give us some feedback on your experience. In the meantime, you can head over to She Bop or SheVibe and check some of the BS Atelier Sex Toys for yourself.


Fleshlight Flight Pilot Review

Hello, ladies and gentleman, Bean is taking the week off from her reviews so that I can bring you another review for the men out there. This week I’ve got another Fleshlight for you all, but this one is a bit special. Today I am going to be reviewing the Fleshlight Flight, with the Pilot texture, from Good Vibrations. So, why is the Flight special? It’s because of its size. Regular Fleshlights are fairly bulky. The Fleshlight Flight is conveniently sized and comes in a much fancier looking case.

Fleshlight Flight Pilot

There are two different Flight models that Fleshlight offers. They have the Pilot (which is what is being reviewed here) and the Instructor. The two are different because of the inner texture. You can see the Pilot texture in bottom of the picture above. I’ll just say this now, it’s a very solid and capable texture. What’s really weird is that this texture is pretty much the same texture as the Fleshlight Stoya Destroya, which I wasn’t a huge fan of, only shrunk down. I wouldn’t have thought that making the texture smaller would have improved it that much, but it certainly did.

As I stated earlier, what makes the Flight models special is their size. A regular Fleshlight, such as the Fleshlight Vortex, is 10″ tall in its case. In comparison, the Flight is 8″ tall, a full 20% shorter. The Flight case is also much more stylish in design. Granted, the original Fleshlights are designed to look like a flashlight, not the most stylish thing in the world. The Flight has graceful lines and is just cool looking. That said, one of my biggest complaints about the Flight has to do with the case but I’ll get to that in a bit.

Fleshlight Flight Pilot Fleshlight Flight Pilot Fleshlight Flight Pilot

So, does the smaller size have any drawbacks in comparison to the regular Fleshlight Toys? To be honest, not that I can see. In fact, I prefer the smaller size as I find it easier to hold, less bulky, and easier to store. The only problem I can see arising from the smaller form factor would be if you are really, really well-endowed. If you measure over 8″, the smaller size may be a hindrance. I am not that big (thankfully) so it’s not a problem for me.

Another thing that I should mention about the Flight line of Fleshlights is the orifice. These are considered their stealth line of toys, so instead of getting a realistic vagina or butt entry, you receive a kind of generic, whirlpool looking entrance. It probably won’t do much to stimulate you visually, but I don’t think the lack of a realistic body part entrance is that big of a loss. The Flight, while still made of Fleshlight’s patented Real Feel Super Skin® material (which is excellent), is clear as well. If you take the toy out of the case you can watch your dick sliding in and out. I tried that but didn’t do much for me, visually speaking. Still, I know that some guys really like that feature.

Fleshlight Flight Pilot Fleshlight Flight Pilot Fleshlight Flight Pilot

Let’s talk a bit about the new case. I love the way it looks, but there is one thing that I hate about it. The bottom of the case on a regular Fleshight is flat. This means that you can put the Fleshlight down and any lube or bodily fluids will not spill out. The base of the Flight is angled, making it impossible to stand it up straight up on its base. I find this highly annoying. Let’s say you pour some lube into your Fleshlight and then remember you forgot to put your porn DVD in the player. You can’t just set the Flight down and not worry about lube spilling out. You could lay it down on its side and the angle is probably extreme enough that stuff wouldn’t spill out, but the case can still roll around. You could also put the cap back on and stand it up on its top, but then all the lube spills out into the cap. Anyway, I think you get the point. This design flaw, and yes, I consider it a flaw, is by far my biggest complaint about the Fleshlight Flight. If it weren’t for the angled base I’d say that the new case is a home run. It is easier to handle, I think it looks snazzy and due to its smaller size it is much easier to store.

One more thing about the case. Like all Fleshlight cases, the bottom cap (the stupidly angled one on the Flight) is used to regulate how much suction is created when you are using the Flight. With it screwed on tightly, you get maximum suction. The more you loosen it, the less suction you get. I have found that I like a lot of suction with this Fleshlight. I leave the cap screwed on all the way. With any Fleshlight, I highly recommend experimenting with the level of suction. There have been times when I did not like a Fleshlight at first, but experimenting with the suction made all the difference in the world. The level of suction can completely change the way the Fleshlight feels.

Fleshlight Flight Pilot Fleshlight Flight Pilot Fleshlight Flight Pilot

Speaking of how it feels, how is the Flight? It’s good, borderline very good. It’s not one of my all time favorites but it is highly enjoyable. I still prefer the Vortex or the STU but I also really enjoy the Flight. I find it a good combination of intense and mellow. If I want to keep the intensity high, I have found that keeping the head of my penis in about the middle of the toy, where you see the fang like texture, and using short strokes, is very effective. If I use longer strokes it mellows out quite a bit. This is great if you want to have an extended session.

One last thing, and this holds true for all Fleshlights, to get the best experience, you want to heat the Fleshlight up first. A ten minute soak in the sink with some hot water will do the trick. While it’s a bit of a pain in the butt, and takes some of the spontaneity out of the experience, a warm Fleshlight is a much better experience than a cold, room temperature one. That said, you can use them at room temperature and they still feel good.

Cleaning the Flight is a simple and easy process. You just remove the sleeve from the case, run some water and a bit of gentle soap through it and you’re pretty much good to go. You want to let the sleeve dry thoroughly before storing it. If the material starts to get tacky, you can sprinkle some corn starch on it to make it feel brand new again.

Fleshlight Flight Pilot Pros:
• Realistic feeling material
• Sleek design
• Solidly good feeling inner texture
• Smaller case has many advantages

Fleshlight Flight Pilot Cons:
• Stupid angled case bottom makes standing it up impossible

Overall, I quite like the Fleshlight Flight Pilot. While not my favorite Fleshlight, it’s a worthy addition to the Fleshlight lineup. I really like the size of the new case, I find it easier to manage and store and it just feels good in the hand. If it weren’t for the angled base, the new case design would be about perfect. I vacillated between a 3.5 and 4 bean rating for Flight and settled on 3.5. If the case didn’t have that flaw, I would have gone with 4.

A quick note, if you like the idea of fucking a Fleshlight in the shower, the Fleshlight shower mount now comes with an adapter to fit the Fleshlight Flight. It’s available at Good Vibrations.

Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators Review

Back in September, I reviewed the Pipedream Fetish Fantasy Spinning Nipple Stimulators. Overall, I was happy them, especially as there are not many vibrating nipple toys that are not actually nipple clamps. I had a few minor complaints (when do I not?) but my biggest issue was that they were made with TPR, not my favorite material for sex toys.

As you know, I have become more concerned about the manufacturing of sex toys, especially the materials used. While phthalate-free TPR should be fine in theory, I am not comfortable with it enough anymore to insert it into body. However, I decided it would be safe enough to sit on top of my skin. The Spinning Nipple Stimulators had no unusual smell to indicate they were leaching chemicals, so I felt secure using them externally.

Then my friends at Queen Cat Adult Toys contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing a similar product, but one made of silicone. How could I possibly resist? Hence my review of the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators.

Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators

The Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators consist of two nipple cups that are about 3.25″ in diameter. In the middle of each nipple cup is a 1.25″ circle of soft, squishy, silicone spikes that are approximately .25″ long. Unlike the Pipedream Fetish Fantasy Spinning Nipple Stimulators, these spikes do not move, they simply transmit vibration.

On the outside of each nipple cup, right in the center, is a small, vibrating bullet embedded in the silicone. These vibrating bullets are what provides stimulation to your nipples, via the spikes. They are wired to the controller with white cables, approximately 6′ long, which provide plenty of length for movement. The bullets are not removable.

As I mentioned above, a big attraction of the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators (aside from the obvious) is that they are made of silicone. This silicone is white and about .25″ thick. It has no odor or taste and while not an awful lint magnet, the exterior of the nipple cups do attract some lint.

The packaging of the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators is in Japanese and as I know probably less than 10 words (including Happy New Year), I cannot say if the manufacturer considers this product waterproof. I’m going to call them waterproofish (totally a word).

You can get the inside of the cups as wet and soapy (not anti-bacterial) as you want when cleaning, but I would be careful around the hole in the silicone where the wires attach to the vibrating bullets and I would not submerge them. As long as you keep the exterior of the nipple cups free of lube and bodily fluids, which should be easy enough, I don’t see the need to get water that close to the wired connection.

If you feel more comfortable with spritzing the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators down with a sex toy cleaner, that is fine as well. The silicone of the nipple cups allows you to disinfect them to share amongst partners. As these are external toys you may feel less of a need to do so, but it’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye. Spray the nipple cups with a 10% bleach solution, allow them to sit for maybe an hour, then be sure to thoroughly wash off the bleach.

The Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators’ controller is made of black plastic with a silver button that turns the vibrating bullets on and off. It also allows you to cycle through the six modes of vibration. At 3.75″ long, 1.75″ wide, and just over .25″ thick, the controller is fairly large. I think there is plenty of room for a second dedicated on/off switch, which I would appreciate. Then again, that complicates the design and this is not a costly sex toy.

The size allows it to fit comfortably in my average-sized, female hands. Is has a grove along along each side that makes it easier to grip if your hands get slippery with lube and/or bodily fluids. The controller requires three AAA batteries that are not included. It also has a red LED that lights up when the nipple vibrators are turned on and flashes in time with each mode.

As I mentioned above, the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators have six vibration modes. When you turn the controller on, it always starts at mode #1. To get to mode #2 you just press the button again. Keep pushing the button until you find your preferred mode or until the Nipple Vibrators turn off. At that point, just hit the button again to start over.

The Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators’ six modes of vibration are as follows:
1. Medium steady vibration
2. High steady vibration
3. Medium pulse
4. Five medium escalating pulses*
5. Fast escalating pulses, with additional pulsing at the highest level
6. Three pulses, low, medium, and high, then fast escalating pulses like #5

*My favorite

The vibrations are definitely buzzy and if this were a clit vibrator, I would not be happy. However, as a nipple vibrator, the buzziness is acceptable. The Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators are very loud and can definitely be heard through a thin door. You’ll need cover music or some other noise if don’t want roommates to think you are practicing illegal dentistry in your room.

The Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators adhere readily and comfortably to the skin. You simply position the circle of spikes over your nipple and press against your breast with a bit of force. You’ll feel a slight suction as the nipple cup secures itself to your breast. Be certain both cups are securely attached before turning on the vibration or they will vibrate themselves right off.

As someone with large breasts, I think the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators has some challenges (that can be overcome). This is probably less the case for those with smaller breasts. It’s not an issue of fit, as you might guess. Obviously, the nipple cups should cover your nipples but they don’t need to cover your entire breast. It’s a matter of movement.

The larger your breasts, the heavier they are and the more they tend to shift around when you move. Even with the 6′ cord, it is possible for this movement to break the suction and yank a nipple cup right off. Multiple factors impact this situation aside from breast size. The position you are in and how much you move around can make a significant difference in maintaining the suction seal.

You also need to beware of physically knocking against the nipple cups accidentally and disturbing the seal of the suction. You probably don’t want to wear the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators when your partner is laying on top of you, rubbing against your chest. That’ll rip the nipple cups right off.

Keep in mind, we’re not talking about a nipple toy like Nipple Suckers, that force the blood to rush to your nipples and engorge them, making the Suckers unsafe to wear for very long. The Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators create a light suction against your breasts. When one disengages unintentionally during play, I only notice because there is a lack of vibration against my nipple. I don’t feel anything when the suction seal is broken. This is definitely a no pain sex toy.

I don’t recommend using any lube with the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators. It tends to make them very slippery and slide around too much, which either breaks the suction against your skin or keeps it from forming entirely. If you want to try a drop (and I mean an eency weency drop) on the spikes, stick with water-based lubricants.

The video below gives you an idea of how the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators work, but it’s mostly worth watching for entertainment value.


The one flaw I did find with my Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators is that one of the nipple cups arrived with a slight tear in the silicone, under the spikes. If I had purchased this sex toy, I would have discussed this with the Queen Cat Adult Toys. Based on my positive experience with them, I have no doubt they would address the issue appropriately.

As this was a review product, I didn’t see the need to trouble Queen Cat Adult Toys about this small defect, especially because it did not impact the performance of the Nipple Vibrators at all. Granted, it’s not the greatest first impression of a sex toy manufacturer ever, but I’ve received defective HDMI cables, mis-sized shoes, and faulty computer components (amongst other items) ordered online. It happens.

I find the packaging of the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators very interesting, at least the outer box. Inside the box, the Nipple Vibrators and control unit sit in a plastic tray inside a plastic ziploc-style bag. I recycled the tray and just store them in this bag.

Back to the box. On the front is a Japanese girl wearing the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators on her small breasts. I love the hot pink speech bubble over one of the nipple cups, as if it is actually saying something. It probably would amuse me far less if I could read the Japanese.

On one side of the box is a visual representation of all six modes. Though I don’t entirely agree with how they’ve depicted “Step 5″ and “Step 6″, I love that this is included on the box. It’s obviously very helpful for people who don’t speak Japanese, comme moi.

The back of the box also has a contribution. At the base, it provides three step instructions on how to apply the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators, both written and pictorial. Again, I appreciate the images for those of us who do not speak Japanese or are just more visually-oriented learners.

These directions, along with the mode depictions on the side of the box, are the only included instructions. Apparently, Japanese manufacturers expect most adults to already know how to insert batteries into electronic devices. Fair enough. Of course, I must draw attention to the (possible) lack of information regarding cleaning the nipple cups and the best type of lube to use with this product. Then again, this may be on the packaging and I just can’t read it.

Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators Pros:
• Effective
• Silicone
• Fairly strong vibrations
• Different patterns
• Easy to use controller
• Good visual information on box

Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators Cons:
• Loud
• No dedicated ebony porn on/off button
• No batteries included
• *Small tear in one cup

*I’m sure this is not typical

First of all, it’s fantastic when someone contacts me and asks if I want to review a sex toy. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Second of all, the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators is a solid and relatively unique nipple toy. I really enjoy nipple stimulation and I don’t always want a side of pain with my order, as with nipple clamps. I greatly appreciate having other options.

I am also happy that these Nipple Vibrators are made of body-safe silicone. People who care about chemical leeching want nipple stimulation too! Though the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators’ vibrations are on a level of buzziness I would never accept in a clit vibrator, my nipples are less picky and are just fine with them. I also really like their power.

The biggest downside of these Nipple Vibrators for some people may be their loudness. They rival some of my loudest traditional vibrators. Unless someone is literally sitting outside my window or backdoor, this is a non-issue for me. I’d like to see a dedicated on/off button, but we’re talking six modes here not 17, so it isn’t a big deal.

I’m not lowering my rating of the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators due to the small tear because it’s an inexpensive item and random defects can happen in any product line.

While I savor the additional stimulation provided by the Pipedream Fetish Fantasy Spinning Nipple Stimulators, I much prefer the silicone of the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators. They also attach and remain on my breasts better than the Spinning Nipple Stimulators, perhaps due to the lack of spinning.

My only caution with this product is breast size and how active you plan to be while wearing the Nipple Vibrators. The smaller your breasts, the more you can likely move around with these on. The larger your breasts, the more issues you will have with weight and movement, so you may need to focus more on remaining still. If your breasts are large enough for you to understand what I mean, I am talking to you.

Bottom line: For good nipple stimulation without any pain or discomfort, the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators are a good buy, especially at their price point. By the way, Queen Cat Adult Toys has them on sale today and tomorrow so now is a good time to pick up a pair!

SPOTLIGHT on New Additions to Jopen Lust, Envy, and Key Sex Toy Collections

Remember way back when Jopen came out with the Intensity? It was a great big deal for a few reasons. The Intensity was Jopen’s introduction to the world, it’s not only a rabbit vibrator and it is also a kegelcisor that works by sending out small jolts of electro-stimulation. Did I mention it has the ability to expand while inside of you as well? It’s still killing me I haven’t reviewed the Jopen Intensity. Yet.

Jopen Intensity Vibrator & Kegelcisor

The next round of toys Jopen released was called the Vanity Collection. I did have the opportunity to test a few of these vibrators, such as the Vanity Vr3, the Vanity Vr10, and the Vanity Vr5.5 (part of the second round of Jopen Vanity Vibrators and my favorite of the three).

Some time after the Vanity vibrators were released, Jopen introduced the KEY line to the market. (Jopen has a number of sex toy collections, as well as the Essence assortment of gels and creams, that I am not going to discuss.) I got to play with the KEY Charms Plush, the KEY Io (which makes me homesick thinking of the Iao Valley on Maui), and the KEY Vela. I enjoyed my KEY Vibrators less than my Vanity Vibrators.

Just as they expanded their Vanity collection, Jopen decided to do the same with the KEY series. They released a handful of new toys, including vibrators, dildos, cock rings, and kegelcisors. Amongst the new KEY toys, you’ll find the KEY Leia Rabbit Vibrator, the KEY Halo Cock Ring, and the KEY Skye G-Spot Massager.

Unlike the Intensity and the Vanity Collection, which are rechargeable, the KEY line is a mix of rechargeable and battery-operated vibrators, as well as non-vibrating toys. I have not had a chance to sample any of the new KEY products and based on my experience with the original three I reviewed, I’m not overly eager to do so.

What really grabs my attention is Jopen’s latest addition to their sex toy line-up, the LUST series. Jopen LUST has some fun and wacky shapes, as well as a few cheerful colors. Of course, I’m like a bee to honey. It’s hard to say which ones I’d like to try the most, but I’ll go with the LUST L5, LUST L10, and LUST L17.

Jopen LUST L5 Vibrator


Jopen LUST L10 Vibrating Butt Plug


Jopen LUST L17 Rabbit Vibrator



I don’t really like how Jopen numbers the toys in some of their collections, such as Vanity and LUST, instead of naming them. You’d think numbers would be easier to remember, but for me it’s much more difficult. I prefer the practice of giving the sex toys actual names like they do in the KEY series. It’s probably just how my brain processes information. I’m better with words than numbers.

As with most of the other Jopen sex toys, LUST vibrators are made of silicone, but not just any old silicone. These use “Virtually seamless, Satin Finish™ Silicone”. I obviously know what virtually seamless means, but I’m not sure how much different Jopen’s new Satin Finish silicone is from the silicone they’ve used in the production of their earlier toys. I’m going to take a wild stab in the dark and guess it’s softer and silkier, but until someone sends me one, we cannot know for sure.

All of the sex toys in the LUST line vibrate. Not a single dildo amongst them. Of course, you could easily use the LUST L4 or LUST L4.5 as dildos. I do love a multi-tasking sex toy. All LUST toys are waterproof and rechargeable via USB. Each item comes with a USB cable and I’m betting there is no AC adapter included. It seems all the vibrators have a travel lock, with exception of LUST L5 and LUST L6. I wonder why.

I am guessing that LUST L10-L12 are butt toys, though they could be used vaginally as well (after disinfection). LUST L11 and LUST L12 look more like prostate massagers to me than LUST L10, which seems more like a standard butt plug. This one really interests me because it’s challenging to find vibrating anal toys made of body-safe materials that have strong vibrations.

Tantus makes a couple plugs that vibrate, like the Tantus Zing, but the included bullet doesn’t have a lot of power. I’m told the We-Vibe Salsa fits well with Tantus toys and has strong vibrations.

There was some concern in the sex blogosphere when Jopen first came to market because they are owned by California Exotics, an extremely prolific sex toy manufacturer. While they make a ton of inexpensive toys, Cal Exotics is not particularly known for using body-safe, high-quality materials, though they have branched out into silicone here and there.

Cal Exotics is not high on my list of faves but they have done a good job with Jopen. Those experienced with Cal Exotics products may be in for a surprise. Some Jopen toys, especially the rechargeables, have a high price tag.

The following stores carry a variety of Jopen Sex Toys, but it’s best to browse them all because each one has different inventory (Stores are listed in order of largest selection):

SPOTLIGHT on New LELO Hula Beads

Last year was LELO’s 10th anniversary. One of the ways they celebrated was by releasing a new product named after one of their very first prototypes, the LELO Ida, which I have mention previously and will be reviewing very soon.

In addition, LELO followed up on a tradition they began in 2012 by updating a few of their older vibrator models, the Liv and the GIGI (not surprisingly calling them the Liv 2 and the GIGI 2). Not only did the Ida grace toy store shelves last year, but LELO also released two other new products, the LELO Tara and the LELO Hula Beads. As the Tara is basically the Ida without the remote, I won’t be discussing it in this post, but rather focusing on the LELO Hula Beads.

LELO Hula Beads

If you recall, a few years ago LELO unveiled several new remote-controlled toys using SenseMotion technology. LELO Hula Beads are the newest addition to the SenseMotion family. You may have noticed the Hula Beads have the same remote as its older siblings, such as the LELO Lyla.

Just as this remote looks the same, it also works the same, offering pre-programmed settings and SenseMotion modes. The SenseMotion modes respond to the actual movement of the remote itself. When utilizing SenseMotion technology, the Hula Beads vibrate in response to how you or your partner move its remote around.

That’s old news though. What are these Hula Beads anyway? Apparently, the smaller, upper ball rotates while the larger, lower ball vibrates, so they seem to have a few functions. You can insert only the upper bead, which I expect would rotate against your g-spot, leaving the lower bead outside of your body to vibrate right under your clit. You could also pop the entire toy inside of yourself so the upper ball would (still?) rotate against your g-spot, as the lower ball vibrates internally.

LELO already has several sets of kegel balls on the market, the most popular being the LELO Luna Beads. They are not marketing the Hula Beads as kegelcisors, but it seems to me like that is a natural part of their function. Of course, not having tried them, I could be totally wrong.

As with the rest of the LELO Insignia line, Hula Beads are made of silicone, rechargeable, and waterproof. They come in that boring old Deep Rose color that LELO has been pushing for a while, as well as Black, and Ocean Blue (which might be just as awesome as my teal Minna Limon).

The most appealing aspect of the new LELO Hula Beads (aside from them coming in Ocean Blue) seems to be the opportunity for couple’s play. If the motors are quiet enough, you and your partner could conceivably go out for a surprising, never know when it’s going to happen, kind of evening.

I’m also always interested in anything that will help me exercise, including kegels, by doing most of the work for me and allowing my body to simply react. If it works, I don’t care if it’s cheating. Besides, it’s not bad cheating, like having someone write your school paper or stealing money when you’re the Bank in Monopoly.

I suppose one could say I am cautiously curious about the new LELO Hula Beads. Have you tried them? What color do you have/would you choose? Totally Ocean Blue, right?

You can find the new LELO Hula Beads at the following stores:
