Shades of Grey Ben-Wa Balls Review

 The Good:
• Discreet
• Easy to clean
•Travel friendly

The Bad:
• Can barely feel them inside me
• Small & not very easy to remove
• For the more experienced user

This was my very first use of Ben-Wa Balls, and I’m going to begin by stating this specific couple is likely not the perfect option for the first moment people using a kegel balls. I’d suggest something that’s bigger, more linked, and that has some sort of cord to retrieve. I get the hang of these Ben-Wa Balls gently.

Kegel balls are of great benefit to females. Ben-Wa Balls ‘ aim is to assist reinforce and tighten the muscles of the kegel. As far as enjoyment goes, during use these still have to offer me any kind of pleasurable feeling.

It was very simple for me to insert the Ben-Wa Balls. My kegel muscles are already quite powerful, so I could use my muscles to maintain them inside me. When I simultaneously put both balls in, I had a difficult time keeping them in location. They were so tiny I could hardly feel them. Mostly when they fell out, I felt them. Since I was having a difficult time using both at the same moment, I decided to try just one ball. For me, this was much easier. I was able to contract and maintain my kegel muscle in location around the one ball. As for now, I continue to use the one ball and hope to be able to use both balls simultaneously eventually. I haven’t had these very long, and to get used to them, I just need some time. To remove these balls, there is no recovery cord, so you have to fish them on your own. The more you use them, you will discover what works best for you.

They have a good quantity of weight for the Shades of Grey Ben-Wa Balls. It comes with nothing to say they weigh heavily, but after doing some internet studies and comparing it to other balls just like them, I’d say they weigh 0.2 lb. I’m trying 3 times a day to use my kegel sticks for 10-15 minutes at a moment. I can feel the exercise my kegel muscles received afterwards.

Size:

Grey Ben-Wa Balls ‘ shades are very tiny in size. They have a circumference of 2 1/2 inches, and no greater than a quarter.  For those who are experienced using kegel balls, these tiny balls are certainly. I would suggest that consumers go with a kegel ball for the first time, which is larger and easier to contract with your muscles.

Material:

A gold metal is made of these balls. Obviously they are not real gold, but they are most probably plated gold. I still have to notice any kind of fading or chipping, but this may occur. I haven’t had these very long, as I said earlier. If you’re a metal allergic person, these Ben-Wa Balls won’t work for you. I personally had no responses to the metal material. What I enjoy most about the fabric is that it’s cool to the touch, but almost as soon as I insert it maintains my body heat.

Keeping Them Clean:

Cleaning Grey Ben-Wa Balls Shades is a easy process. They are a number of ways to clean them. You can clean metal with soap and water, boil it on the stove, bleach it with a 10% bleach and water solution, or put it through the dishwasher. Using with any type of lubricant is also secure.

Keeping Them Safe / Packaging:

The Shades of Grey Ben-Wa Balls come packaged in a cardboard box and are placed inside a sort of packaging plastic clam-shell. To store them inside, it doesn’t come with a pouch, but I would definitely suggest storing them inside some sort of pouch. You can just keep them in the clam-shell packaging if you don’t have a pocket to store them inside.

Review of Wham Bam Paddle by Tantus

The Good:
•Great for impact play
•High quality silicone
•Easy to clean

The Bad:
•Too flexible

This is my very first paddle and I’m so happy to be a new owner of this lovely paddle while I can’t manage it at its greatest potential. I look forward to all this paddle to be able to manage in the future. If you’re someone who’s experienced with impact play and you’re looking for something that gives you a nice sting and some red marks, Tantus ‘ Wham Bam Paddle is handing down a purchase that you won’t regret. Not only will this Tantus paddle provide a quality smack, it’s also a paddle that if you care for it correctly will last your lifetime.

Design & Size:

The Wham Bam Paddle is 15 inches long and 2 inches wide. The paddle itself has a thickness of 1/4 of an inch while the handle is 1/2 of an inch.

The paddle is a lengthy, rectangular shape, and the handle has a curve to it, so holding it in your hand is comfortable. This paddle should fit in tiny and bigger hands comfortably.

Material / craftsmanship:

This is a paddle that is very well produced! You’re never going to have to worry about this half-breaking paddle or mid-spank falling apart. It is produced of the distinctive 100% ultra-premium silicone mix of Tantus. It is totally non-porous, hypoallergenic, free of phthalates, and non-toxic. It is free from any unpleasant odors, too.

The paddle of Wham Bam is a very versatile paddle. In the middle of the paddle, it is most versatile, and it can almost fold in half. I think this paddle’s silicone fabric and flimsiness is what gives such a beautiful sting. Because this paddle is so versatile, the ideal hit can be hard to deliver.

Performance:

Depending on how much force you put behind it, the hits from this paddle can really hurt. This paddle will generate, more than anything else, a stinging feeling that can be very enjoyable! The paddle hits hurt more than any paddle I’ve ever attempted, though I’ve never used a paddle like that. I would definitely suggest this to more severe BDSM customers who want a quality paddle delivering a sting hell! I suggest you try something that isn’t as intense as the Wham Bam Paddle if you’re a beginner.

Keeping it Clean:

It can last you a lifetime if you take good care of your paddle. You’re going to be happy to learn there are many methods to clean this item, and they’re all very easy. It can be bleached, boiled, passed through the dishwasher, or just plain ancient water and soap. I prefer a dishwasher, fitting it inside a dishwasher is much easier than a pot.

We-Vibe Touch

We-Vibe Touch

I loved every We-Vibe toy I ever owned, so I was ecstatic when I had the opportunity to review the We-Vibe Touch. I hoped that the Touch would be the silicone version of the Salsa and Tango, and it certainly liked my aspirations.

If you want a strong, maneuverable, waterproof, travel-friendly, highly quiet, and high-quality silicone rechargeable clitoral vibrator, the We-Vibe Touch is a vibrator you would like to consider buying. Whether you’re searching for something to use on your own or with a partner, We-Vibe Touch has what it takes to please all types of customers. Please note that the Touch is for internal stimulation purposes only. Do not in any manner insert the Touch.

Charging:

The Touch charging time is 90 minutes. However long the manufacturer suggests charging your toy, I strongly suggest charging it. You get a nice 120 minutes of playing time with your toy after 90 minutes of charging.

We-Vibe does its magnetic charging. There is a charging base that attaches to the toy’s bottom magnetically. Sometimes I find it difficult to get a good link. The charging can be very touchy, but when the tiny light shines an orange color, you’ll understand it’s charging.

We-Vibe Touch Packaging

We-Vibe Touch Packaging

Material:

The Touch is made of a soft, non-porous, hypoallergenic, phthalate-free, medical-grade silicone and 100% secure body. It’s odorless, tasteless, and there was nothing that caused me to think this toy was made of no material other than 100% silicone.

Despite the smoothness of the silicone, there is a very noticeable drag. You might discover that to get a moist and slippery glide going on you need to add a little lubricant. Another inconvenience with the silicone product is that it gathers lint and hair readily, so make sure you rinse it off before using it.

Shape / Size:

A tiny vibrator is the We-Vibe Touch. It is 4 inches long and less than 2 inches wide. The Touch’s shape is somewhat distinctive, not your average clitoral vibrator’s shape. The Touch shape reminds me of a tongue shape. The tip is tapered slightly, and the top is narrower, while the base is rounder. The toy’s body has a slight curve, making it a very pleasant toy in the palm of your hand to maneuver / hold. It’s also the ideal size vibrator to use when playing partner, as it’s less probable to get the way.

Vibrations / Controls:

I really expected powerful Touch vibrations and that’s precisely what I received. Although the vibrations aren’t as powerful as my Salsa or Tango, it’s still a strong, profound, and rumbling quality vibration. The silicone material muffles the vibrations slightly, which is the only reason they don’t feel as powerful as the Salsa or Tango. This toy, which I personally enjoy, is hardly buzzing. Although the vibrations are strong, you can’t feel them in your fingers, so after a long period of time it won’t lead any kind of numbness to your fingers. Also, if you’re someone like me applying a lot of pressure, you’ll be happy to know that when applying pressure, the strength of the vibrations won’t weaken.

There is a button at the bottom of the touch that forces your toy on and off and scrolls through the various types of vibration. To turn it on, press the button once, change the modes you keep pressing the button, and hold down the button for at least 2 seconds when you’re ready to turn it off.

The We-Vibe Touch has eight distinct modes of vibration. The first four vibration modes are constant, low-to-high vibrations. The other four modes are vibrations of patterns. I include a list of vibration patterns on the We-Vibe website.

  1. LOW  3000 rpm VIBE
  2. MEDIUM  3600 rpm VIBE
  3. HIGH  4200 rpm VIBE
  4. ULTRA  4800 rpm VIBE
  5. TEASE
  6. WAVE
  7. PULSE
  8. CHA CHA

Keeping It Clean:

because the touch is 100% waterproof, it implies you can play with the shower, bath, swimming pool, whirlpool, etc. Best of all, it implies it will be a easy method to clean. Simple wash your touch with mild soap and hot water, or choose a cleaner for your toy. Make sure you don’t boil or put your toy in the dishwasher, whatever you do.

Keeping it safe:

The touch comes with a white satin, drawstring pouch to store your toy and charger inside, so you don’t have to maintain the box unless you prefer. Also included is a pamphlet that provides you data about warranty and charging. We-Vibe offers a 1 year warranty if you get a defective product. For data on returning a product, please visit the We-Vibe website.

Packaging:

The Touch comes packaged in a classy-looking box, which is also the exact same box that the Tango and Salsa enter (for those of you who own one). At first it may seem a little confusing, but opening it from the bottom is the best way to open the box.
