Sometimes the best toys are the ones that you can find around the house!

Sex toys are an amazing step into the world of personal pleasure, but let’s face it, it can be scary buying something you’re not too certain you’ll actually like or use more than once. A specific style of toy known as a “pervertable” might be exactly what you’re looking for, and you might already have it at home!

Pervertables are essentially normal, everyday objects that, when properly cleaned, can provide some form of sexual satisfaction. Oftentimes these can be easily found in your house or even large chain stores. Here are some examples and different uses!

Wooden Cooking Utensils:

Think of a wooden spoon or spatula, these are perfect and incredibly common alternatives for a paddle! Using proper cleaning methods could include boiling or a mild soap and warm water. Make sure you dry them separately so they don’t harbor bacteria! The solid wood material is a great thuddy sensation and relatively light to practice with and see if you or your partner enjoy this kind of play. 


How about taking a step into sensation play with temperature! Ice is a great introduction to the various sensations that can be brought on by varying temperatures on the body. Be mindful of sharp edges on the ice cubes though as you don’t want to harm your partner at all. Otherwise, ice is 100% body safe considering it is made entirely of water and will melt after use. Some uses include bringing more sensitivity to different areas of the body as well as bringing heightened sensations to someone who is blindfolded. 


Rulers, similar to kitchen utensils, can be used for impact play and spanking, but can add a layer of role play to the scene as well. They can be associated with the mental side of the interaction and help get into the role they are fulfilling such as teacher/student. Additionally, because this is a thinner piece compared to the kitchen utensils, it will provide a slightly stingier sensation rather than thuddy, providing something different to the interaction. These can be cleaned relatively easily with disinfecting wipes or with mild soap and warm water. 

Robe Belt/Tie:

Leather belts are a relatively commonly used item for restraint, but something that might be a little better for a first timer will be the belt to a robe or a necktie. These are made of a much more gentle material and are easier to tie safely. This is a great introduction to restraining but also has the ability to be used as a gag or blindfold. Make sure to always have safe words in place if you need to get out quickly! These often can be cleaned by being thrown in the washer with regular clothes.

Valentine’s Day can be a day full of love and affection between partners who have been together as long as a week to their entire lives. But what if all those hearts, flowers and chocolates just isn’t your style? Maybe you’re single and have no interest in the holiday as a whole. How do you find joy in a day that’s set aside seemingly just for couples? Well, instead of celebrating your love for another, why not celebrate your love for yourself!

Self love is an important aspect of celebrating oneself and the enjoyment that you can find in solo activities or just embracing the little self care techniques you can implement throughout the day. It’s easy to confuse self love with big extravagant things like treating yourself to a nice dinner and spending a little extra cash or buying that new item you’ve been eyeing for a while. But it doesn’t always need to be so extreme or pricey! In fact, here are some ways to show intense self care and love, regardless of your gender, without spending much money at all!

Show Your Body Some Love

When was the last time you truly gave your body the best attention you could give it? Maybe you’ve been lacking in your skincare routine or haven’t given yourself a good shave in a while. Now is the perfect time to run a warm bath with that new bath bomb you got on sale or some relaxing epsom salt to ease your muscles. A little bit of relaxing scented candles or essential oils will give you the much needed rest and relaxation you’ve needed for quite some time! If a bath or shower isn’t your style, take some time to thoroughly wash your face, maybe use a face mask or some moisturizer on your body where you might feel like your skin is getting pretty dry and cracked. Little things like this that maybe you don’t think of every day can help make your body feel fresh and rejuvenated if you’ve neglected it for too long. 

Have a Little “Me” Time

Has stress been building up in work and life? Maybe the little bit of time you do have is spent just trying to take the edge off and relax after a long day. It’s time to put your pleasure first! Take some time to really express yourself with bodily pleasure and explore the things that make you feel good. There is evidence that not only will masturbation and other self pleasure techniques help you relax, but self exploration has been linked to better sexual satisfaction as a whole, even with future partners! Use this time to find out what feels good to you and discover new things that you might want to continue doing in the future!

Discover your Love Language

Love languages are often something that is only explored in relationships, but how can they benefit you and your own self love? The 5 different categories are Quality Time, Acts of Service, Physical Touch, Giving/Receiving Gifts, and Words of Affirmation. Quality time can be as simple as setting up a regular time to just relax and do things that make you feel most comfortable. Acts of service can be anything regarding therapeutic work that helps you find ease at home. Maybe you let your dishes pile up or your room is a mess. A little clean up can help bring better peace of mind down the line. Physical touch doesn’t always need to be another person, but maybe your coziest blanket and a warm cup of tea. These warm sensations could bring a more soothing aspect that will help you relax, like a warm shower. Maybe it's time to treat yourself to something in your Wishlist that you have been saving up for, give yourself a little gift. And positive affirmations can always be a rewarding thing to hear. Whether you just feel like you’re really rocking that new hairstyle or just feel like everything is going well. It’s a great time to pat yourself on the back and remind yourself that you are doing great!

Give Yourself a Break

One thing that many of us can probably agree with is there is not nearly enough time in the day. It’s important that we take care of our responsibilities, but we can’t neglect the mental, physical and emotional toll it can take on us. Take some time to recuperate in the way that you see fit. Maybe it’s by taking the kind of nap that you fall asleep from and wake up wondering what day it is. Maybe it’s putting on your favorite tunes and doodling like you did when you were a kid. Maybe it’s pouring yourself a nice beverage of your choice before settling in with a good book or show you’ve been dying to catch up on. These little breaks help in more ways than one and can help rejuvenate you in ways you haven’t been able to experience for a while with your busy lifestyle. It’s always good to take a break, I recommend one around once every 1-2 weeks!

Can you orgasm without ejaculating or the other way around? To answer this, it’s important to look at the two as separate actions rather than one in the same.


In its simplest definition, it’s the point of sexual climax for an individual to experience. This is when, during stimulation, the pleasurable sensations cause the body to have rhythmic muscular contractions, typically in the pelvic region. Orgasms can come from many different types of stimulation on areas such as the genitals, nipples, or various other areas of the body. These muscle spasms are involuntary and often are accompanied by vocalizations, sudden movements and a sense of euphoria and immense pleasure. In the period right after an orgasm, known as the refractory period, these euphoric sensations become more relaxed and the release of endorphins and other chemicals in the brain can even potentially bring senses of clarity and enlightenment. With this being the climax of sexual stimulation, many people associate it directly with ejaculation, typically in those with penises. But you can easily have one without the other. Additionally, throughout time using techniques like tantra, the Kama Sutra and other methods, people have discovered ways to gain the same stimulation and orgasmic satisfaction without much or any physical stimulation.


Ejaculation, on the other hand, is the physical release of fluid from the body that often accompanies an orgasm. For penis owners, ejaculation is the release of semen and sperm from the body through physical stimulation. For those with vulvas, ejaculation is the release of fluid from sources that are still being studied for a better understanding of the action, but is widely accepted that it is a mix of urine and secretions from the skene’s gland. When ejaculation and orgasm occur together, the same muscles that convulse during orgasm can cause ejaculation in the body, though it is not a guarantee. On rare occasions, the body can make the same muscular spasms as if it were to release fluid without actually releasing any at all. This can be due to multiple different reasons such as repeated ejaculation within a short period of time, genetics, surgeries and more. It is common in things such as masturbation, that people mistake a true orgasm for the quick physical satisfaction that comes from ejaculation. 

After Sex Blues?

Now, with all this talk about pleasure and euphoria, there is a phenomenon that isn’t well known even with how common it is. Post-Coital Tristesse, also known as the post-sex blues, is when someone engages in sexual activities yet feels emotions like sadness, depression, or anger after sex. This can potentially come after either ejaculation or orgasm. It’s important to note that this does not necessarily mean that the person experiencing it is depressed or sad in their everyday life. The combination of emotions that flood the brain during sexual activity can also be overwhelming and invoke reactions like this without any warning. The best comparison for this would be how when someone has too many responsibilities and their anxiety kicks in due to this causing them to shut down. These emotions should subside after a short amount of time, however, in that time they can be very damaging when mixed with the more “enlightened” thoughts that can come post orgasm as well. While they aren’t harmful on their own, this does leave the person at the mercy of their own mind.

So when thinking about what the differences are between orgasm and ejaculation, they seem pretty similar with only a few key differences. Whereas ejaculation is primarily the physical release and the satisfaction that comes from release, an orgasm is the full body pleasurable experience. Orgasms also include a level of mental stimulation as well with the inclusion of the chemicals in your brain being affected. While they can go hand in hand, they are two halves of the same coin.

It’s no surprise that sometimes condom use isn’t the most glamorous topic surrounding sex. It’s not the sexiest thing in the world and for most people, outside of its necessity for helping reduce the risk of pregnancies and STI transmission, they don’t like to think about it. But condoms have so many types and variations that it might just be the missing ingredient in mind blowing sex between you and your partner! Here are just a few variations that might help you and your partner find a new spark between the sheets.

External Lubricated/Non-Lubricated:

The most common condoms you’ll find on the market are standard lubricated or non-lubricated designs that do not have any additional design variations to them. A little pouch at the tip is used to collect any semen that comes out with ejaculation, and while majority are lubricated for easier penetration, some come unlubricated for the ability to match your favorite lube to it.


One of the lesser known and even more rarely used, the internal condom is actually one of the most versatile. Its design allows for the user to wear it internally for up to 8 hours (varies by brand) before needing to be removed. This means that if you and your partner are into the idea of a little more spontaneity, this is the perfect option to be protected at all times when the mood strikes. This can be used both anally and vaginally and helps protect the surrounding area as well against STIs and such. These typically will always be lubricated. 


Similar to a standard condom, this ups the ante just slightly with an added design element of little studs that protrude off the condom. These are worn externally and act like any other condom type with a reservoir tip to collect semen after ejaculation. The studs allow for extra stimulation whether it be used to rub against your partners genitals or internally against other sensitive areas.


If studs aren’t your style, ribbed might be the next best thing. Using a wrap around design of protruding ripples, this helps give stimulation all around the desired area. This can be good for someone who wants a more subtle sensation variation. Like the studded, there are no additional design variations to the condom shape as a whole and it will still have the reservoir tip. 

Extra Lubricated:

For those who might need a little extra for a smooth entry, extra lubricated condoms use just a little more than a standard lubricated condom without making it too wet or sloppy. These are perfect to have an easier and smoother penetration with your partner and, with the slicker entry, it can make other sensations both internally and externally more sensitive. 

Specialized Lubrication:

Similar to extra lubricated condoms, and often with a little extra lubrication, these external condoms can have various different sensations that come with it. Some are used to provide a warmer or cooler sensation while others have a lubrication specifically made to intensify sensations in the genital area. Some of the more unique variations may include a delaying lubricant that allows for the wearer to be slightly desensitized if premature ejaculation may occur. The various different types can provide different sensations so it’s important to look into the different ones available and see which will be best for you!

Ultra Thin:

If you want the closest sensation to the real thing, ultra thin may be the option for you. Made of the same materials as typical lubricated condoms, these provide the same amount of protection in a thinner package, These also allow for the wearer and the person on the receiving end to feel much closer and, in some cases, much more naturally compared to regular thickness condoms.

Extra Thick:

For those worried about the condom breaking or being too thin for their sensitivity, extra thick condoms provided added material to make the condom stronger and refrain from tearing. This additional thickness also helps desensitize the penis if they are worried about premature ejaculation similar to the desensitizing lubricated condoms. 

Extra Large/Extra Small:

For those who may be a little larger or smaller than average, there are still plenty of options of every variety in sizes better for you. Majority of the time, Extra Large condoms don’t account for a thickness difference, but for length. But keep in mind, your size does not define you!

Novelty Condoms:

These are the goofy condoms that you might find in some hole in the wall shops in a touristy place and have wild designs and additional elements on them to “improve” sensations. It’s important to know that these condoms are not regulated like the others on this list and, while they could potentially still provide protection against STIs and pregnancy, they are more likely to be faulty or made of non-regulated materials harmful to the body. That is why it is always best to purchase a reputable brand that you trust.

There are so many different variations of condoms out there and the list is growing all the time as new companies attempt to come up with new designs that will help stimulate various areas of the body in better ways. Some new variations come with added material on the tip to provide more stimulation on the G-spot while others have a wavy design all over it for a more all around feel. Make sure to keep an eye out for what’s new to see if you might find the perfect type for you and your partner!

Learn About Vibrators 101

Now that you’ve gotten an understanding from our Vibrators 101 course on some of the various type vibrators that exist, it’s time to get into the nitty gritty.


Clit Vibrators

These little babies are also known as “bullets”. They are typically no more three inches in length and are designed specifically for clitoral stimulation. While the name of these vibrators come from the shape and size of a bullet, they can also come in more modern designs and textures.

Discreet Vibrators

This style vibe is exactly as its name implies; discreet. The purpose of the design is to ensure that no one can tell by looking at it what power it really holds. Though they will come in a variety of designs, lipstick and mascara tubes are some of the more common designs.

Egg Vibrators

When it comes to vibes, the sex toy industry doesn’t beat around the bush. This kind of vibe is oval in shape and looks like, well… an egg! More often than not, this older style vibe will come with a remote with a cord attaching them. This vibes is usually used for clitoral stimulation and will have a deeper, more rumbly vibration sensation.

G Spot Vibrators

To review from our Vibrators 101 course: G-spot massagers are intended for internal use. Most will have a slim, straight shaft with an egg shaped bulb on the end. This bulb, once inserted, will massage the g-spot that is located about 2-3 inches inside the opening of the vagina. Being that the g-spot is part of the clitoral network, stimulation in this area can result in an intense orgasm.


Also known as “wands”, this style toy look similar to a microphone with a bulbous vibrating head and a shaft to maneuver. If you want a lot of power, the original design that plugs into the wall is going to be your best bet. With technological advancements, however, these do also come in rechargeable options. The frequency at which these vibrate offers a deeper, rumbling sensation that is intended for external stimulation (though you can get attachments for internal stimulation if you are looking to really rock your world).

Penis Shaped Vibrators

Like the human penis, the penis shaped vibes will come in a wide variety of shapes, colors, and grooves. You will have the option to choose from vibes of this style that take batteries or are rechargeable. There will also be the option of a more realistic feel, a firmer TPC, or a soft silicone. Make sure to checkout our Dildo 101 blog for more information on these different material types! (LINK)

Pocket Rocket Vibes

An oldie but goldie, the pocket rocket refers to a very specific style and design of vibe. Coming in around four inches in length, the design of this vibe will come three small, metal nubs on top. It will also usually have a removable number cap which will offer two stimulating textures. These will typically take one AA battery and have only one speed.

Rabbit Vibrators

With a longer shaft for insertion and a smaller vibe on top, this style toy will offer both internal and external stimulation at the same time! Rabbit vibes tend to be what most people think of when they first considering getting themselves a toy. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and functions so try to keep that in mind while shopping.

Remote Control Vibrators

If you are looking to mix things up with your partner and let them have control over your vibe or you’re looking for a hands-free ride, these bullets are just what you need. Remote control vibrators will come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Remote capabilities can vary from a simple on/off or can allow the user to customize their own patters (or, in some cases, vibrate to the beat of music!).

Slimline Vibrators

These vibes are longer than your standard bullet and range in size from about 4-7 inches. These are primarily used for internal stimulation, though they can also be used externally if you have any mobility/dexterity issues. These typically tend to be on the slimmer side and are usually smooth.

Water Resistant Vibrators

This is a fantastic feature that more ad more toy companies are offering now. This feature offers a seal or barrier which prevents moisture from getting inside the machinery of your toy. One thing to note is that while many toys will advertise that they are “waterproof” or “water resistant”, this does not always mean they are water submersible. The difference being that waterproof toys are safe to take in the shower, but not in the bath.

Wearable Vibrators

As the name would suggest, these vibrators are worn in the vagina or anus or will clip to underwear for secret clitoral stimulation. More often than not, this style of wearable vibe will come with a remote, which can either be controlled by the wearer or given to a partner for discreet public stimulation.


Now that you have a better idea of just exactly how many options there are out there for vibrators, we hope it helps you make a more informed decision as to what will help you achieve the orgasm of your dreams.

Learn About Vibrators 101

When it comes to the world of vibrators, there are a lot of options available. Below are a few things to think about and understand before you make your first (or second or third) purchase. Like people, sex toys come in all shapes and sizes. When considering your toy, ask yourself how or, more importantly, where you would like to use it. These are some main shapes/styles of vibrators available today:



Bullet vibes range in size from 1-3 inches in length and typically look like their name implies; a bullet. While the overall design hasn’t much changed, they certainly do get the job done. Those looking strictly for clitoral stimulation would do well with this toy. Due to their size, they are discreet (some even come in sneaky packaging to look like a lipstick). They can be used solo or with a partner and can be easily tossed in an overnight bag, dresser drawer, or even a purse for on-the-go orgasms.

Stick Vibrators

These vibes are longer than your standard bullet and range in size from about 4-7 inches. These are primarily used for internal stimulation, though they can also be used externally if you have any mobility/dexterity issues. These typically tend to be on the slimmer side and are usually smooth.


Like a stick vibe, g-spot massagers are intended for internal use. Most will have a slim, straight shaft with an egg shaped bulb on the end. This bulb, once inserted, will massage the g-spot that is located about 2-3 inches inside the opening of the vagina. Being that the g-spot is part of the clitoral network, stimulation in this area can result in an intense orgasm.


You know those “back massagers” you would see ads for on late night TV? That was the original iteration of one of the most powerful toys available. Wand-style toys look similar to a microphone with a bulbous vibrating head and a shaft to maneuver. If you want a lot of power, the original design that plugs into the wall is going to be your best bet. With technological advancements, however, these do also come in rechargeable options. The frequency at which these vibrate offers a deeper, rumbling sensation that is intended for external stimulation (though you can get attachments for internal stimulation if you are looking to really rock your world).


For those of us old enough to remember Sex and the City, this iconic toy has been a go-to for people for decades. This toy has the best parts of a stick vibe and a bullet combined into one! Rabbit vibes tend to be what most people think of when they’re first considering getting themselves a toy. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and functions so try to keep that in mind while shopping.


These are sort of the “other” category of the sex toy world. Dildos can vibrate, but don’t always have to. For the sake of this article though, dildos typically range in size from 4-12 inches and often look like a penis. Those that do not look like a penis will be thicker than a stick vibe and tend to have more nuance in terms of shape. They will often have a suction cup base that can be used for riding or in a harness for partner play and the vibration speeds and patterns will vary from toy to toy.


Functions and Features

So here is where things can get interesting. With advancements in technology, vibrators don’t just have the three low, medium, high settings. Now they offer pulsating, staccato, and a wide range of dots and dashes to bring you right over the edge. Not only are there different vibration patterns to think about, there are also a number of features certain toys offer that include, but are not limited to: sucking, warming, thrusting; beads that move up, down and around; thumping, wiggling, and spinning.


As I mentioned before, sex toys are like people… they come in all sizes. Some will be petite and some will be, well… quite large. Something to consider when making your toy purchase is not just length, but girth as well. If you’ve only ever had a finger (or nothing) inserted, you may not be as comfortable using as girthy or lenghty toy as someone who has been sexually active or used toys before. It is important to consider your own comfort level when considering your toy purchase.


Toy material is also something to take into account. While there is no federal mandates when it comes to toys, the industry does a fairly good job at self-regulation. That being said, not all toys are 100% body-safe or allergen-free.

To learn more about the different materials used to make vibrators and dildos, check out our blog "Dildos 101".


Gone are the days of pink and purple being the only available color option! Toys now come in every color imaginable ranging from flesh tones to neon green and orange. While you’ll still find many pink and purple hues, you’ll have much more choice.

Other Things to Think About:


Where will you be putting your new best friend? Do your kids snoop through your stuff? If you plan to use it primarily in bed, do you have a place to store it that is easily accessible? If you want a plug-in wand, where is the nearest outlet?

Make sure to keep hygiene in mind when stowing and cleaning. To learn more about keeping your toys clean, check out our blog"How To Clean and Store Your Sex Toys Properly".

Noise Level

Do you live alone where noise isn’t a concern or do you have paper-thin walls and nosy roommates? Are you trying to get in one last orgasm before bed and don’t want to wake your sleeping partner?


As much fun as 60-pound sex machine with full range of motion and thrusting action may be, will it take up an entire room in your house? If so, is that a problem? Do you want a toy that can do multiple things or do you want specific toys for each use? If you travel often, is your toy small enough to bring with you?

While there is certainly is a lot to consider and think about when it comes to purchasing a toy, this guide is designed help you think about what it is you want in a toy and give you an idea of what is available.

Choosing and Caring for a Masturbator

Gone are the days of only the hand to satisfy! “Masturbators” or, more commonly known as “pocket pussies”, are ribbed sleeves that can enhance the experience of masturbation. As they’ve become more mainstream, there are a number of different options to consider. Below are a few things to know and think about before making your purchase.



When people think of “pocket pussies”, they’re usually thinking of these. This type of masturbator tends to be about 4-7 inches long with a mouth, vagina, anus, or non-descript opening for insertion. Most masturbators will be made of a soft, skin-like material for a more realistic experience. This type of stroker has ribbing on the inside for additional pleasure and can be moved or squeezed as the user prefers.


You may be familiar with the original designer of this style of toy: Fleshlight. They popularized the stroker sleeve inside a hard case. Because the sleeve is inside a hard case, the sensation can feel more realistic as it is the case being moved rather than the stroker itself. These hard cases will also regulate the amount of air inside the device so the user can control the amount of suction and tightness at any given time. Not only does the hard case protect the sleeve from lint/debris, it also conceals it in a discreet case. Like the no-case strokers, these also come in mouth, vagina, anus, and non-descript openings. Often, companies will collaborate with popular adult stars or cam girls and make molds of them for the masturbators.

Powered Masturbators

These kinds of strokers will take the basic design of the hardshell devices and take them up a notch. With this design, you can get a masturbator that vibrates, sucks, spins, or milks. The most popular of these designs are the ones that mimic fellatio. Most of these devices are rechargeable, though you can still purchase ones that take batteries or plug into the wall.

Though these come with many benefits, they can often be a on the loud side so keep that in mind when making your selection. They will also require a little additional care when it comes time to clean it.


Because these strokers don’t self-lubricate, you will need to add lube to enhance the experience. Due to the nature of the toy’s material, make sure you are only using a water based lubricant. The use of silicone or oil based lubes will degrade the toy’s material.


No matter what kind of masturbator you’ve chosen, they all need to be thoroughly cleaned. Small, damp spaces are the perfect environment for bacteria to grow so once you’re finished, follow these basic steps and your toy will not only stay clean, but will last longer:

  • 1. Rinse: Most masturbators will have a hole at the opposite end from the insertion point to allow water or other fluid to be rinse out.
  • Pro Tip: If you’re using a hard shell style, you can pull the sleeve out for proper cleaning. Don’t forget to sanitize the hard case as well in case fluid got in.
    Pro Tip: With a moving/vibrating masturbator, follow the cleaning direction provided in the box. Some will allow you to remove the sleeve while others will require a little more attention and care.

  • 2. Apply cleaner: While standard toy spray is an acceptable cleaning solution, for masturbators, we suggest selecting a foaming cleaner. Once inside, the cleaner will expand into the crevices. Once it’s inside, move the masturbator around to evenly disperse the cleanser. If you have just the sleeve, rub it between your hands (like if you were trying to start a fire) to spread out the foam.
  • 3. Rise again: After you’re sure the cleaner has been evenly distributed throughout, rinse it out. At this point, any bacteria causing fluid will have been removed.
  • 4. Dry: It’s important to allow your toy to dry. Store it upright on a towel to allow gravity to pull the remaining water from the chamber. Give it a few shakes to make sure all the water is gone.
  • 5. Powder: Since most masturbators are made of a skin-like material, they do require one additional care step. As you use and wash your toy, you’ll notice the material starts to get tacky. To prevent this and keep it soft, apply a dusting of toy powder once your toy is dry. It will adhere to the toy’s surface to keep it touchably soft.
  • 6. Storage: If you’ve purchased a hardshell stroker, just insert the sleeve back into the case and pop on the lid. If you have no-case stroker, you will want to place this item in a breathable bag. Then, just stick them in a cool, dry place and it will be ready for your next use!

Adding a stroker to your masturbation ritual can bring you to new heights in your sexual exploration. With the wide variety of toys available, you’ll never run out of new sensations to experience!

Dona by JO Kissable Massage Oils

What if I told you can have your cake and eat it to? Ever gave your partner a massage and wished you could lick the oil right off of them? Well now you can with the Dona by JO Kissable Massage Oils. Not only can you give your partner a sensual rub down, but now you can lick your partner from head to toe with these lovely edible oil. Let’s dig in, shall we?


  • Infused with Aphrodisiacs and Pheromones
  • Edible
  • Non-greasy
  • Long Lasting Formula
  • Moisturizes and rejuvenates skin
  • Available in three scents/flavors: Vanilla Buttercream, Chocolate Mouse, and Strawberry Soufflé

Tiffy’s Review

The Dona by JO Kissable Massage Oils provide you with a unique experience. This oil is edible. So after your done rubbing your partner down, you can lick them up. The consistency of these oils are thin and runny. They spread nicely over the skin and doesn’t have a greasy feel to them. Because of this, they are a joy to lick off your partner and can be worn on the skin for extended periods of time without feeling heavy on the skin.

The great thing about the Dona by JO Kissable Massage Oils is that they have a slightly sweet taste to them that’s enhanced with flavor. Because they are mostly oil-based, the formula doesn’t get sticky even after it dries into the skin and can double as a moisturizer for extremely dry skin. I would imagine that you could set the mood with your partner by lighting some candles and either getting a massage table, using a bed, the sofa, or even the floor to give them a massage. Start the massage with them on their stomachs then on their backs. After applying the oil to their nether regions, massage the area then you can dive in head first, if that’s your thing. If not, that’s perfectly okay.

I got to try out all three scents/flavors. Here is my interpretation of them:

1. Vanilla Buttercream - This one smell and tastes like frosting. Yummy!

2. Chocolate Mouse - This one has to be my favorite. Not only does it smell like chocolatey goodness, but it tastes like it to.

3. Strawberry Soufflé - Bright berry scent to match its berry flavor. Delicious on the tongue.

Tiffy’s Tip: Avoid using oil-based products such as the System JO Dona Let Me Tease You Massage Oils and others when using latex products such as latex condoms, as they can break down the material causing it to break and lose its effectivity.

Final Thoughts

The Dona by JO Kissable Massage Oils are an ideal product for those looking to enhance their sexual pleasure through the exploration of erotic massage. When sexy time isn’t happening, it can also be used as a moisturizer to dry skin or added to a running bath.

What You Should Never Do During Oral Sex

When it comes to giving and receiving oral sex, things can get tricky which can lead to a no so fun experience. The last thing you want to do is traumatize your partner who is either giving or receiving, turning them off from ever considering doing the act ever again or even passing this trauma onto another partner. So here are some tips as to what you should never do during oral sex.

1. Demanding Your Partner Go Down on you

I get it. You want some head. However, no one owes it to you. No one has to give you something just because you want it. It’s very important to discuss sex goals and the specificity of those goals, like wanting oral sex for example, with your partner. Never go into the bedroom assuming that something is on the menu if it was never discussed beforehand. You may find yourself being disappointed.

2. Tell Your Partner Groom Their Genitals to Your Personal Preference

We all have a preference on how they like to maintain our nether regions grooming wise. But what if I told you that its actually rude to tell your partner to shave or get a wax just because you like it that way? Depending on how you say it, you can unintentionally insult your partner. There are some ways around asking your partner to groom themselves down there without insulting them. You may find that they will be more willing to compromise mutually when asked the right way.

3. Comparing Your New Partner’s Oral Skills to That of a Previous Partner

Some people just have a way of doing things or their just “Orally Gifted” so to speak. Everyone’s style and level of experience is different. Comparing one to another in many cases is like comparing apples to oranges. Don’t do it. Don’t tell your partner if you do. You can make suggestions or just tell them what does and doesn’t work for you. Telling them that your ex was the best oral sex you ever had may cause them to feel insecure or not good enough when it comes to their personal skill.

4. Ejaculating Into Your Partners Mouth without Permission

This isn’t cool. Some individuals are not okay with the idea of someone ejaculating into their mouth during climax. Some people just don’t care for the taste of it. While some can’t control it and honest mistakes are made, don’t do it on purpose. If your partner requests that you not do it before going down on you and you agree to not do it, doing it may create distrust between you and your partner. This may cause them to never want to go down on you ever again. No one likes an unpleasant surprise.

5. Using Aggressive and Physical Gestures as Way of Making a Suggestion

Dude, I get it. You want your partner to go a little further down on your member. Using a physical gesture like pushing someone’s head down however, may have some messy results and not in a good way. If your partner isn’t familiar with deep throating, pushing your member further into their mouth and down their throat may trigger their gag-reflex. The gag reflex is activated for many reasons but in particular to this situation is to stop something foreign from going down the throat. Very similar to when someone is brushing their teeth and their toothbrush hits the back of their mouth, causing them to gag. This can cause someone to choke and in some cases throw up their food. It’s just poor manners and unless you want your partner’s lunch in your lap, don’t do it. Unless you have consent to do so.

Pipedream Fantasy for Her "Her Ultimate Pleasure"

I once heard somewhere that a jack of all trades is an expert of none. And in my line of work as a sex toy reviewer, a sex toy that aims to do too much may end up doing nothing at all. So when Pipedream came out with the Fantasy for Her - Her Ultimate Pleasure, I had some reservations as it literally does too much. Luckily, they got it right with this powerful yet compact tool made just for her. Let’s take a more in-depth look.

  • Rechargeable
  • Made of Silicone and TPE
  • 4 Powerful Motors
  • Comes with textured tongue sleeve
  • Comes with 2 suction attachments
  • 10 G-spot Vibration Patterns
  • 3 Suction Patterns
  • 7 Tongue Motion Vibration Patterns


  • Length: 10 inch (overall), 3 inch (external clitoral stimulator)

Tiffy’s Review

The Fantasy for Her - Her Ultimate Pleasure is many things which is why you can’t really call it just one thing. It is dual-ended, has a longer side that has vibrations that can offer both g-spot and broad clitoral stimulation. The other side has a flicking tongue that can be used for clitoral stimulation and a suction feature that comes with 2 suction attachments: one that can be used on the labia and the one that can be used anywhere in the body. The whole package is quite small and compact for a toy with so many features, and the silicone is matte and silky smooth. Did I mention that it’s also rechargeable and completely waterproof? Yea. That part.

Of all the features, the pulsing suction and the flicking tongue is my favorite. The flicking tongue because it feels lovely on the clit. You can hold it, so the flicking motion is going up and down, or turn it to the side so that the flicking from left to right. I also like that it comes with a textured sleeve for the tongue that adds a realistic feel to the experience. There aren’t many sex toys on the market are both rechargeable and can be used as a pussy pump. The Fantasy for Her - Her Ultimate Pleasure’s suction features allows you to enhance stimulation to your labia by using it to make the area more sensitive. Because it comes with a smaller suction attachment, it can be used on different parts of the body and partners.

Tiffy’s Tip: Always remember never to use a silicone-based lubricant with silicone sex toys as it can break down the material of your toy and void the warranty. Always do a spot test when using a new lubricant and sex toy.

Final Thoughts

This vibe is great for anyone who wants to experience a ton of new sensations in one item or is looking for a toy that can be used with multiple partners who have different needs when it comes to stimulation. No the case, the Fantasy for Her - Her Ultimate Pleasure most definitely has something for everyone.
