Pulse II Duo Male Masturbator from Hot Octopuss

Male Vibrator

The PULSE II DUO has been designed specifically with couples in mind. Worn by him, enjoyed by both, the PULSE II DUO is a revolution in couples’ sex toys. Incredibly sexy and intimate, PULSE II DUO is a unique hands-free experience that leaves you free to focus completely on each other.

Pulse II Duo

According to the Pulse website the male experience will be identical with both the PULSE II and the PULSE II DUO. However, the DUO has a soft vibrating underside which the woman can independently control via remote. Both toys are 100% waterproof and offer five stimulation modes with adjustable intensity for the man.

Medical research has identified that vibrations applied in a very specific way can make a man (involuntarily) ejaculate. PULSE has harnessed this science through its oscillating PulsePlate™, designed to deliver the most powerful and unique orgasm you’ve ever experienced.

As a solo toy, PULSE can be used in two ways. Firstly, when used with lubricant PULSE becomes a revolutionary next-generation masturbator. Alternatively, lubricant-free, PULSE is more like a static stimulator. In this case the PulsePlate™ provides stimulation direct to the frenulum. This sensation will be completely different to anything experienced before: testers have told us they experienced a more powerful and prolonged orgasm and that it is like learning to masturbate all over again.

Pulse II Duo

The first things I noticed about the Pulse II Duo were the size and weight; it was much bigger and heavier than I expected. In the box was the ‘guybrator‘, the remote control disc, a storage pouch, charging cable, and some instructions.

pulse ii duoNow you’re probably thinking I don’t have the required ‘equipment’ for this toy, and you’d be correct. Luckily, I had a very willing friend, and the urge to have some naughty fun. I was a bit confused about exactly how the Pulse II Duo worked, and we spent a while frowning at the instructions while juggling the weight of the toy. I found it really quite heavy, and I couldn’t see how it would sit properly when used as a couple.

I understood the mechanics of it in solo play but for sharing it just seemed too heavy. First we tried it as a masturbator but even with plenty of lube it just didn’t seem to work with a stroking motion, plus the weight of it made my wrist hurt. Lol. Next we got him inside it, and I straddled him, turning on the vibrations, and grinding against him but the vibrations weren’t as strong as I would have liked, and it just really wasn’t working for me. Disappointed we gave up and I left it with him, so he could give it a try in his solo play.

The feedback isn’t great. The pulsing just didn’t work for him, and he found the unit was quite heavy in use, so it wasn’t comfortable to hold for long. I think maybe we just had issues with the weight, and exactly how to use this. I’d have liked slightly more comprehensive instructions, I think.

*However, Dave from The Big Gay Review gave this 10/10 so please read his review here.

On the plus side the Pulse II Duo is completely waterproof so clean up was lovely and easy.

Overall

I really wanted to love this but it just didn’t work for us. However, I know Hot Octopuss are hoping to release some smaller versions, so I have my fingers crossed that one of those will work better for us. Because as a company and brand I love what they are trying to achieve here.

Flick EM60 from ElectraStim – ElectroStimulation Play

Electro Stimulation

Electrostimulation is a unique type of sexual stimulation as unlike normal sex toys that vibrate or rotate, ElectraStim directly stimulates your nerve endings using carefully produced electrical signals that generate a highly stimulating sensation.

When using ElectraStim stimulators and electrodes you’ll feel tingling and contractions that complement sexual contact, improve the pleasure you feel and can even bring you to orgasm with no additional stimulation required. On higher levels electrostimulation can feel uncomfortable and even tortuous, which is why e-stim has such a close association with BDSM. The sensations you experience are entirely dependent on you, increase power slowly for a more sensual and erotic electro-sex experience.

Flick EM60

At Sexhibition in 2015 I won the ElectraStim prize draw, which gave me a voucher to spend in their online store. It took me about eight months to pick what I wanted. I was hoping to get the Flick Duo but it had gotten to the point where I felt bad it was taking me so long to save up, so I ended up with a Flick EM60 Stimulation Pack, and the lovely team threw in a Nona G-Spot probe as well.

flick EM60  dsc01210

The pack contained the single-channel EM60 Flick unit, 4 ElectraPads, a connecting wire with 2x 2mm pin connectors, a USB charging cable, a storage pouch, instructions and a 1-year warranty. The printed outer sleeve shows a photo of the unit, and the inner box is plain black, and very solid. It would be great for storage if you needed it but you get a fab storage pouch in the pack, which perfectly fits the unit, wires and ElectraPads in.

After charging the unit for a few hours I decided I would be best starting off slowly, so I opted for the ElectraPads. The unit I got is the single channel so I could only use two pads (or one probe) at a time. I first tried the pads on my inner thighs and found the sensations were quite intense, even on the lower settings. I struggled using the pads to get me off and decided to switch to the probe. I think for a situation where you want to ‘get off’ the pads would be best used with a partner, with each of you wearing one pad so when you touch you complete the circuit and get that extra tingle. *See below for my favourite solo use of the pads.

I had to use a vibe to warm me up because the bulbous shape of the Nona probe meant I had a bit of trouble inserting it. However once it was in and I turned on the stimulator it was really good. The head sat against my G-spot perfectly, and the electrostimulation made my muscles contract. It’s a strange sensation. It doesn’t feel anything like when you use a vibrator, it’s a completely different feel. It took a while for me to stop mentally analysing it, and just concentrate on the feelings it produced. The instructions for use suggest that you always use conducting gel however I found my normal water-based lube worked just fine. I did have a slight issue with the wires getting caught but then I am a very wiggly person when I’m coming.

flick em60

The Flick EM60 unit has a somewhat unique selling point (and is presumably where it got it’s name), when it is turned on there is a setting you can use, where you flick the unit to get a burst of stimulation. I found if I stuck the ElectraPads to my butt, I could spank myself using the flick motion. And because the intensity can be controlled it is very easy to warm up; starting at a lower intensity and building to a sharp ‘slap’.  This was great fun, and would be great for people who like the sensation of spanking but don’t have the opportunity (or partner) to be spanked very often.

Overall

I really liked the Flick EM60, and I’m looking forward to playing with it more. However, if I was buying now, I would definitely go for the Duo version with the extra ‘channels’.

GRing ‘G-Vibe’ Vibrator and Remote From Fun Toys

GVibe Vibrating Sex Toy

Gring is a unique combination of finger vibrator and remote control for your other Fun Toys. You may use it as a finger-vibe for your sensitive zones, as well as a remote control for various Fun Toys products.

From Fun Toys

GRing

I was originally offered the GRing to review at the beginning of the year but due to some mix-ups, staffing changes (at FunToys), and some miscommunication it didn’t arrive until the middle of the year. Unfortunately, it arrived right after ETO which meant it got added to the end of a very fair sized review queue.

Gring

The ‘box’ is a tube shape with a rope handle and fitted soft plastic lid. Inside the tube the GRing vibe is nestled in firm foam with all the extras packed underneath. You get the magnetic charging cable, a storage bag, and a very simple instruction booklet. By simple I mean easy to understand, in plain English with good illustrations. After a spate of either no instructions, or very confused instructions recently it was refreshing to have some that actually made sense, and helped me use the toy.

GRing GRing GRing

The GRing clit vibe is 100% waterproof, fully rechargeable, and whisper quiet. It charges via a magnetic USB charger; it took around 90 mins to fully charge and that lasted around an hour on the full strength. It is made of silky smooth premium grade silicone. This feels lovely to hold, the shape and soft touch material make it very tactile. In my hand the vibrations felt adequate but nothing too strong. For me this meant while it was great to use on my nipples, and to tease it was never going to get me off. It just didn’t have enough depth of vibration to really hit the spot for me. That being said I did find the vibration was more rumbly than buzzy, and reasonably strong given the very small size of the toy.

GRing GRing GRing

Overall

As a stand alone vibrator this is great if you only need gentle vibration. But for me where it really came into its own was as a remote to control the GPlug (review coming soon).

Tot Bodee

When I was approached by DealsMachine about reviewing for them, I was confused at first, they didn’t seem to be the sort of company who would be selling sex toys but I agreed to give them a go.

When the item arrived it was in a thick grey polythene bag/envelope. The outside gave no indication as to the contents, including on the customs declaration. The downside of this packaging was that when I opened it the box had sustained some cosmetic damage on the corner. It felt very much like the item had come from a wholesaler, rather than somewhere selling to the public. So much so that I actually emailed my contact to check who their customer base was supposed to be. The box also had information stickers covering the product photo, and details on the back.

tot bodeeThese stickers didn’t peel off, so they just made it look a bit messy, and again added to the wholesale feel.

tot bodee

However, the part with the stickers attached was just a sleeve, and underneath was a plain white box. Despite the dint on the top corner, this was actually a fairly sturdy box. Inside the Tot Bodee was nestled in a foam shell with the charging cable, instructions, and a storage pouch underneath. I do love when companies include a storage bag.

DSC01073The Tot Bodee is made of lovely silky smooth silicone, it is completely body safe and odourless. It says it is waterproof, and the charging cable is one of those pin ones that you push through the silicone. It is supposed to seal up again after you remove it. Unfortunately after just a few uses I can see a hole developing, which makes me nervous of using it in water now.

tot bodeeUsing the Tot Bodee I was pleasantly surprised by the strength of the vibrations. I found them to be quite deep and rumbly. I also found them to be quite noisy. I could hear it under the duvet from outside the room. Once it was inserted this became negligible though.

tot bodee

Now to the important part. To fully use the Tot Bodee you need to download an app from the app store (available in both Android and Apple iOS). I downloaded the app no problem but when I tried to pair the vibrator using bluetooth it just wouldn’t connect. I tried multiple times on both my Samsung phone and my iPad, no matter what I did it just wouldn’t appear in the app. I tried to check the main product website but the entire thing is in Chinese, with no international options.

tot bodee

Overall

Disappointing. The vibration is good and the product is nice. However, if your product won’t work on the main feature you’re selling it on, what is the point? A shame because the shape and feel of the toy were very nice, and the vibrations were rumbly.

Rocks-Off Ignition Bullet Vibrator

Bullet Vibrator Review

Rocks-Off Ignition

“We have another new bullet, again USB rechargeable, called Rocks-Off Ignition which is a ten-speed designed to be used on its own, but also to be used with the existing RO-80 bulleted products, both male and female, therefore turning all of your ‘favourites’ instantly into rechargeable toys. Ignition is powerful, streamlined, but also beautifully elegant to give orgasmic stimulation to every intimate trigger point.

Rocks-Off Ignition

I was sent the Rocks-Off Ignition in a parcel with the Ruby Glow, and I was quite excited to try it. I’d not had any experience with rechargeable items from Rocks-Off so I was interested to see what the power would be like.

I have to admit for me this type of bullet doesn’t really do a lot for me on its own, I’m the same with the We-Vibe Tango too. But they are great for using in dildos.

rocks-off ignition

The Rocks-Off Ignition comes in a printed black display box. It is made from rigid plastic, and is gold coloured. It is completely waterproof, and USB rechargeable. The socket for the charging cable is one of those push through ports that seals when you remove the cable. It has three speeds and seven patterns of vibration so you’re sure to find something you like.  Its petite size is ideal for putting in your handbag or overnight luggage, and it has a tapered tip for pinpoint stimulation.

rocks-off ignition

The pinpoint stimulation doesn’t really work for me, I prefer broader stimulation. But I do like to have this type of bullet in for use in dildos, and other toys, or for teasing other areas. I liked the Rocks-Off Ignition. It had a good strong vibration, that although a little more buzzy than rumbly still travelled well through a dildo.

The only bad thing I have to say about it is the noise level. It sounds like a swarm of angry wasps, and after a while I found it a bit distracting.

Overall

I liked the Rocks-Off Ignition. It is a good solid rechargeable bullet vibe, and a total bargain at less than £30. If you like bullet vibes and don’t want to break the bank it is a great investment.
