Toy Review: Erotic Dice by Pipedream

…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

Toy Review: Door Jam Sex Sling by Sportsheets

Having experienced ceiling-suspended sex swings in various private dungeons (all in the name of research work, of course!) and being low on space and even lower on DIY skills, Sportsheets’ Door Jam Sex Sling seemed the perfect alternative to the professional models available on the market. Arriving in branded black packaging the size of your

Toy Review: Jack Socket stroker by Electrastim

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of UK electro-stimulation manufacturers Cyrex, and it seems everyone else is finally catching up. At every erotic show, be it for trade or for the general public, Cyrex’s Electrastim stand is swamped by those intrigued by the concept of e-stim sex. Cyrex are succeeding thanks to canny reframing of

Toy Review: Ass-Gasm by Pipedream

With a name like Ass-Gasm there was no escaping the inevitability that this toy would end up in our collection. Part of Pipedream’s extensive stable of erotic enablers, the Ass-Gasm has proved a growing success for men of every sexual persuasion since its launch, unsurprising since it includes a prostate and perineum massager, as well

Review: Swan Ultimate Personal Intimate Shaving Kit

From the Untamed Bush through the Martini, Landing Strip, Brazilian, Vajazzle and back to the Bush (‘Trimmed’ these days thanks to self-confessed au naturel fans Cameron Diaz and Gwyneth Paltrow), fashions in pubic hairstyle have always moved with the times. And with continuously evolving personal grooming comes a whole range of ever-competitive topiary tamers unleashed

Toy Review: Zoe Twistty by Maia Toys

From bespoke sex furniture to anal exercisers, in an office brimming with adult items it’s rare that a vibrator catches the eye of Cliterati staff. But then Maia’s Zoe Twistty is no ordinary vibe: its double-ended design means double the fun! So, how does it work? Well, the narrower tip of the Zoe is slightly

Toy Review: 8″ Realistic Vibrating Cock by Doc Johnson

There have been a number of innovations in the erotic industry since the simple cord or screw-based battery vibrator of a few decades ago, yet these original designs are still selling well – albeit with a few all-essential tweaks. Take for example Doc Johnson’s eight inch Vibrating Realistic Cock, modeled on an actual erect penis.

Toy Review: Jimmyjane Form 5

Being in the enviable position of owning all five Jimmyjane Form vibrators, I feel qualified to comment on the sole piece missing from my collection, the Form 5. Like the rest of its Jimmyjane stablemates #5 is visually arresting, being beautiful enough to be an ‘objet’ (the Jj designers really do have an exceptional eye).

Toy Review: LELO ORA 2 – Or, why I don’t do sex toy reviews

Part 1: The excuses So the very lovely people at LELO sent me a couple of toys to review for Cliterati. One was this, the ORA 2. The other was the LUNA Smart Bead. Both arrived in their beautiful, elegant boxes, looking absolutely perfect. The Apple-type packaging alone made me moist (this happens when I

Toy Review: Robo Fuk Sex Machine

Ever on the hunt for a decent sex machine, we were lucky enough to get our hands on the Robo Fuk by Love Botz. Suitable for both men and women it comes complete with realistic accessories, namely a Fleshlight-esque sleeve and a bendable dildo that can be shaped to your preferred angle. At first glance

Review: Licx Gel Lube

With a plethora of intimate moisturisers on the market, it’s hard to know which to choose. You may already know to select water-based lube for use with silicone sex toys and latex condoms, or use oil-based for anal or longer sessions with a partner, but equally important aspects to consider are whether your chosen sexual

Toy Review: Sh! Dildos – Mistress Cupid XL, Vibrating Strapless, Wirly Girly 3

If you’re looking for exceptional dildos, either for pegging purposes or for girl-on-girl action, you want to head to Sh! Womenstore. It’s not for nothing that the Sh! team have won the adult industry award for ‘Most Innovative Retailer 2011, 2012 and 2013 as well as ‘Best Business’ in the 2012 Qype Business Awards and

Review: Tie & Tease

Move over Monogamy, there’s a naughtier board game in town. If you’ve been enjoying the resurgent popularity of BDSM then it’s time to buy into its ultimate kinky accompaniment: the stylishly designed Tie & Tease. Players throw a D/s die alongside a normal numbered one, picking up themed cards (Role-play, Sensory, Sex, Impact and Contract) to

Toy Review: Best Mains-Powered Wand Vibrators

Never ones to rest on our laurels, we here at Cliterati have gone all out to update our previous Best Mains-Powered Wands (MPW) review, with the result that there are two new Wands sitting pretty in the top two spots. Of course, since our previous number one The Eroscillator is unusual in both approach and

Toy Review: Frisky Faux Fox Fur Tail Butt Plug

There are two main situations where an online store runs out of stock on an item: one is that the product’s so popular supply doesn’t meet demand, the other is that the thingummy isn’t any cop and isn’t selling, so the vendors aren’t likely to get any more of them in. Fortunately, I had a

Toy Review: Jimmyjane Form 2

Jimmyjane’s Form 2 is an ever-present product on the shelf of every discerning adult shop, so we thought a thorough review well overdue: just what is it about this vibrator that makes it such an attractive item? Perhaps it’s the ever-spinning cogs of the company’s marketing department that make Form 2 such an enduring success,

Toy Review: Rabbits – Soraya, Whooper, Bondara Silicone, Amorino, Tingly Timmy

Soraya by Lelo Ably pipping its Lelo counterpart the Ina 2 to the post, the Soraya is worth the price you pay for a toy from the Lelo luxury brand (surprisingly this is not always the case, as demonstrated by some of their more ‘experimental’ products of late such as the much derided Pino). Smooth

Toy Review: Lelo Soraya vs Lelo Ina 2

From one of the top-selling luxury brands of ‘lifestyle’ toys, Lelo’s Soraya has made waves at Cliterati towers thanks to its flexible clit-stim shaft and all-round effectiveness. Not only does it pack a fair punch on the G-spot and the clitoral areas, but the two approaches can be isolated and used separately, at the same

Toy Reviews: The Autoblow 2

I have a small collection of toys, but they’ve been sitting untouched for probably a couple of years now. Men’s sex toys have suffered from a depressing lack of design for many years; the tendency was to produce yet another lurid pink sleeve with disembodied genitals moulded on one end. Women’s toys moved on from

Toy Reviews: We-Vibe 4 Plus by Suzanne Grange

I was sent this toy for free to review, though I’d had my eye on it for a while. Currently £127.99 on lovehoney.co.uk. If you have the cash, it’s worth splashing out.   The We Vibe 4 Plus differs from the previous 3 models in its range of settings and its controllability. The vibe comes

Toy Preview: Luna by Lelo vs Lula by ElectraStim

There are many different names for what Anastasia in Fifty Shades called ‘Jiggle balls’, such as Ben Wa balls, Geisha balls, Kegel balls/exercisers, love eggs, silver balls and orgasm balls. Dr Arnold Henry Kegel’s publications gave us the terms Kegel exercises and Kegel exerciser. Kegel exercises are now the recommended way to improve a range

Toy Reviews: Double Your Pleasure Range

Shiny things are always welcome at Cliterati, so when a box full of metal and silicone toys arrived for us, free, from Ann Summers, it was a great start to the day. The new ‘Double Your Pleasure‘ range is the world’s first premium metal and silicone toy collection and it lives up to its premium

Toy Review: Cara Sutra’s Beginners Bondage Kit

I recently read a piece in a national newspaper by a well-known columnist, which was a positive review of a new novel. The praise may have been well-deserved, but it was only when I scrolled down to the Comments section that it became apparent that the columnist and author were great friends – something readers
