Toy Review: Erotic Dice by Pipedream

1198912-300x300…And now for something completely different! Yes, we’re talking about the glow-in-the-dark Erotic Dice by industry stalwarts Pipedream, which may hit high in the novelty states but are no less valid an item worthy of review.

In fact, these dice are surprisingly compelling: one die shows the body parts ‘Lips, Boobs, Nipples, Body, Toes’ and a mysterious ‘?’, whilst the other the following six actions ‘Tease, Lick, Massage, Kiss, Touch’ and ‘Blow’. We can all imagine what ensues, but of course how ‘Tease ?’ or ‘Massage Toes’ are interpreted is entirely up to the individual. This does mean that you may get repeated rolls of frustrating combinations like ‘Massage Lips’, but even this helps increase your inventiveness, inspiring the player to perform actions which may never have occurred to them before.

Also, the Erotic Dice helps make space for the more sensual, touching and kissing starter acts between partners, rather than aiming straight for the stereotypical ‘main course’. The exclusion of any instruction specifically genitally-based makes the dice ideal for enabling foreplay between shy people, those newly in a relationship who might otherwise be going straight for it hammer and tongs, and for long-term couples stuck in a sexual routine or rut. Add in the dice’s potential to break the ice at swinging parties, and you soon realise these Erotic Dice would suit pretty much anyone with a pulse.

The glow-in-the-dark aspect of the dice offers a bit of extra fun: whether enjoyed under the covers or in a darkened room they’re sure to prove illuminating! As with all glow-in-the-dark products you need to remember to ‘charge’ them up on the window sill or under a light before use, the longer the better, as the brighter they become the easier the instructions are to read.

This brings us onto aspects of the Erotic Dice that could be improved: for example, the packaging may be tasteful in appearance, but that’s fairly pointless if the lettering on the dice inside arrives worn-off in places, making it hard to read. Then, there is the use of the word ‘Boobs’ rather than a gender-neutral term like ‘Chest’, which would have been a better choice of word. However, at the price Pipedream is pushing the dice these issues aren’t deal breakers – especially since they’ve thoughtfully manufactured a version for Spanish-speakers, too.

Pipedream make additional similar products, Paradice and Oral Sex Dice, which when thrown together with Erotic Dice make for the ultimate six-dice session of flirtatious, random naughtiness; unpredictable sex with a sense of humour? What’s not to like?

With the tagline Roll the Dice and Get Lucky, this is one game where everyone’s a winner. Congratulations Pipedream, you’ve hit the jackpot!
