JimmyJane Form 2

DSCN5076

 

I was really elated to receive my very own JimmyJane Form 2 from MemeShop for review. MemeShop picked this out for me. This is actually a sex toy I have been wanting for a long time. I have never owned anything from JimmyJane and I was really impressed with this little gadget!

Materials: Silicone & Stainless Steel

Dimensions: 3″ x 1.75″ (1″ arms”)

 

DSCN5069

The JimmyJane Form 2 is rechargeable, waterproof, discreet, and powerful. It is a small clitoral vibrator. It fits perfectly into the palm of my hand. It has two motors, one in each of its arms. The motors work together. The ears are stiff and firm. The will bend slightly with a bit of pressure. The best use I could find for this vibe to start off with my clitoris nestled between the arms, but then I always end up using just one arm to cover my whole clitoris to orgasm. This vibe is really fun for and can be used on all erogenous zones of the body. I enjoyed it on my nipples and it can be used on the super sensitive area between the scrotum and the cock. I didn’t try this vibe internally, and I would not suggest anyone use this vibe anally.

The Form 2 has a three button interface. The vibe has three speeds and 4 patterns. It has an on/speed control pattern button(+), dedicated off button(-), and a function button(~). The buttons are on the side of vibe and covered with silicone. It is a wee-bit louder than I would have expected. It is pretty quiet, but at the highest level it produces a whine that might be heard though the door in a quiet house. The noise was not distracting for me but worth mentioning. The Form 2 also has a travel lock. In fact, the toy comes in the locked mode. To unlock or re-lock it just press the top (+) and bottoms (~) buttons at the same time.

The silicone on this has a bit of drag and does attract a bit of lint. The silicone is compatible with water-based lubrication. The Form 2 charges in a base. The Form 2 will light up when it is charging. When it is removed from the base it will flash once, twice, three or four times showing you how much of a charge it has. If it blinks three times it has a full charge. If it blinks four slow blinks it has zero charge. It can sit on its charger anytime it is not in use and will not overcharge. The first time it needs to be charged for at least 2 hours. I was able to use this vibe three times before the charge ran out. The Form 2 will run for up to 7 hours on a full charge.

DSCN5068

The vibrations on the Form 2 are strong, even on the lowest setting. I really loved all the settings and I even enjoyed played with this thing on its lowest setting. I found this vibe to be tons of fun. The unique shape makes this vibe really one of a kind. I was able to get pin-point and diffuse vibrations on all my most sensitive spots. It is completely waterproof so it can also be taken into the shower or tub. The Form 2 is really easy to clean with soap and water or a sex toy cleaner. I found that JimmyJane Form 2 had so many uses. The best use I found for this vibe is to let it tickle the area you want stimulated and not to apply too much pressure. From the Jimmy Jane website:

FORM 2 Suggested Uses

  • Hold FORM 2 so that the ears are on either side of the clitoris, labia, or other pleasurable area. Stroke, squeeze the ears together, or simply stay still and let the vibrations do the work.
  • Slide FORM 2 up and down between the labia. Vary the motion so that one or both ears periodically comes in contact with the clitoris.
  • Hold FORM 2 at the base of the two ears so that with a little squeeze you can push the two of them together to stimulate the clitoris or other parts of the body, where you might usually like a nibble.
  • Take FORM 2 into the bathtub with you and make waves (of pleasure). Bring the tips of the two ears close to the clitoris (or other sensitive parts of the body). The water between the two ears comes to life, transmitting the vibrations to your skin. You may find that you can have an orgasm without ever coming in direct contact.
  • For more gentle vibration, use the lower portion of FORM 2 (below the ears).

DSCN5074

This toy is almost perfect. It is one of the best toys I have ever owned. The only problem I found is that when I put extra pressure on the arms, or touched the ears together, sometimes the arms don’t transfer the vibrations as much as they should. JimmyJane addressed this issue on their website in the FAQ’s about Form 2:

Help! It’s making a grinding noise/the vibration is shifting into the base.
When the ears of FORM 2 are pressed together, pressure is also exerted on the motors, and this can cause the vibration to temporarily change and/or become louder. Vibration will not stop, nor will FORM 2 become damaged. This change is normal and indicates the motors are functioning properly.

I would still highly recommend this vibe. It is expensive, but worth it in my opinion.

The Form 2 came in an extra large box. The box seemed like a bit of a waste really. Sadly the box did not contain a storage pouch. The box did contain lots of information about the Form 2 and how to care for it. The box was not discreet. It could be used for storage, but I just keep my Form 2 charging all the time. The Form 2 has a three year limited warranty. Three years is one of the longest warranties in the industry. The details about the warranty are also found in the giant box.

DSCN5066

The JimmyJane Form 2 can be purchased at MemeShop. MemeShop is a UK based company that sells lingerie, toys, and gifts. The website is really easy to navigate. They offer free shipping in the UK and a low cost flat rate shipping for everywhere else. They have lots of unique sexy items!

The Strange and Unusual History of the Vibrator

Old-skool vibrators

Social Acceptability Of Sex Toys

2012 has seen sales of sex toys soar through the roof. With the hugely popular ’50 Shades of Grey’ storming through the bestsellers charts, online retailers of all things pleasurable have been feeling the heat, with products they guarantee will take the place of diamonds as girl’s best friend. Whilst jiggle balls and handcuffs have seen massive increases in popularity, the classic or rabbit vibrator is still considered the most popular sex toys among many women, available in many shapes, sizes and textures. Gone is the embarrassment that came with admitting you owned a sex toy, with women everywhere – whether in a relationship or single – taking charge of their own sexuality.

Origins Of The Vibrator

It’s a far leap from the humble beginnings of vibrators. The vibrator was invented in the eighteen hundreds to tackle ‘hysteria’, the female disease which had been diagnosed by Hippocrates and which had had little update since. More than one in four women were said to have the disease with symptoms that could encompass everything from fatigue to stomach cramps, and the most effective cure was ‘hysterical paroxysm’ – otherwise known as ‘orgasm’. Other cures included sensory deprivation and removing yourself from anything too taxing, but pelvic massage was often considered the most successful. Whilst it’s tempting now to see this as sexual deviancy, it seems the doctors of the late 1800′s were less than happy about the application of this treatment.

Until the vibrator was invented, the unfortunate doctors of those days found themselves overwhelmed with women diagnosed with the disease, and they’d suffer cramps in their hands as they spent hours ensuring they cured the women of their illness using pelvic massage. By 1870, a clockwork vibrator was invented and the physicians found themselves cured of their problems, and overbooked with patients.

Old-skool vibrators

Commercial Release Of The Vibrator

It took many more years for vibrators to be used outside the doctor’s office, but in 1900 they were finally released as a retail product. It became the fifth electrical appliance to be released for consumer use after the sewing machine, fan, kettle and toaster and was released years before household necessities such as the electrical vacuum or iron. However, in the days when ‘female hysteria’ was still considered a valid illness, it would have been embarrassing and very much frowned upon to admit to owning one of these devices for anything other than medical purposes. Therefore, they were marketed as body massages offering to cure anything from headaches to asthma.

The Sexual Revolution

It wasn’t until the sixties that vibrators started being accepted as a form of female masturbation in a previously prudish society. Whilst they still carried a certain amount of stigma, being seen as a lesser form of pleasure than intercourse, women now found themselves investigating facets of their sexuality in a less judgmental age, where masturbation was not something to be frowned upon or discussed only in a doctor’s office but something to be enjoyed in the home.

By the seventies, vibrators were marketed to women as a sex aid and since then women have been taking responsibility for their own pleasure. As the use of vibrators became more and more mainstream, with hit television shows such as Sex and the City praising them, women have become more and more comfortable in the purchase of these gadgets to the point where now, in 2012, they are openly discussed on television and purchased not only by women but by couples worldwide looking to spice up their love life. No matter why they were invented, women the world over are reaping the benefits.

Lending a Hand

sinfulsunday

Last weekend Miguel and I went out to a swinger gathering. As usual, when we hit this type of venue, Miguel had several couples lined up that we were going to meet in person. Some of them for the first time after chatting online for months. The turn out at the venue wasn’t that impressive. We were one of the first couples to arrive and one of the last to leave. At the last moment a couple invited us back to their hotel for some after party fun. We were more than happy to oblige.

We got the hotel and they offered us drinks. It seems they were prepared for fun. The room was pretty nice with a separate sitting room and a king sized bed in the bedroom. Miguel found a great way to break the ice and whipped out the blindfold. We blindfolded her and I helped her out of her clothes. I led her over to the bed and had her lie back. I took off my corset top and kissed her. I tweaked her nipples and then her husband handed me some toys to play on her with. A bullet for her clit and a slim vibrator for her pussy. I rubbed the bullet all over her clit and slowly eased the vibrator into her. I am usually more oral, but this couple was a soft swap. I didn’t want to ruin everything by going too far. We hadn’t discussed if she was interested in playing with me, just that they weren’t interested in a full swap. I looked for cues that she was enjoying herself. She was very wet but almost silent as I played. Her man took pictures of the action. Miguel got up on the bed by her head and held her arms while I worked on getting her off. After a while I grabbed her hand so she could control the amount of pressure of the bullet and I handed the vibrator to her man. I took off my skirt and panties and got my own vibrators out. I stretched out next to her to work on getting myself off while her man and Miguel watched. We fucked like animals after that. It was a great night.

Lovehoney Micro Magic Wand

I got the cutest little vibrator from Lovehoney! It is the Lovehoney Rechargeable Mirco Magic Wand. This thing is so cute and it recharges on the computer with a USB cord.

Materials: ABS plastic and ???

Dimensions: 4″ x 1.1″

I was really intrigued by the size of this vibe. It has a one button interface with 7 different functions. You have to hold down the button for a few seconds for it to turn on. The light under the button glows blue when it is on and flashes with the pulse patterns. There is not a steady vibe with this wand. The closest it came to steady was 3 pulses every second, with no stopping. The vibe is incredibly buzzy and was not strong enough to actually get me to orgasm citorally, it came really close though. The head is big enough that it hit my labia with its buzzy head and felt almost uncomfortable. Buzzy is so different from rumbly. For me buzzy only works when it can be concentrated right on my clitoris. Then buzzy is pretty fantastic.

The toy itself is actually 3 pieces. The cap is soft and comes off. It stays on very well and goes back on easily, just takes a bit of maneuvering to get it off. This makes cleaning really easier since the toy itself is not waterproof. I found I could better clean the cap when it is not attached, then I could scrub between the groves with soap and water. I just use a sex toy wipe to clean the rest of the toy. I am not sure what material the removable cap is since it isn’t listed on the site or the box. It feels like silicone, but since the Lovehoney website says you can use either water-based or silicone based lubrication, I am gonna guess it is some sort of rubber.

The base unscrews to reveal the charging port. The toy came with a corded charger which had a USB connection on one side and a straight pin plug-in on the other. The plug doesn’t go all the way in to the toy, but the button lights up when it is charging. It does plug in to the computer, but not directly. The light under the button glows red when it is charging and green when it has a full charge. The nice thing about it is the quick charge which takes only about 20 minutes. It gives about 20 minutes of play once it is fully charged.

I so wanted this to get me off clitorally but it just didn’t do it for me. It is pretty powerful but the size of the head doesn’t work for me personally. Other uses I found for this vibe were for teasing massage, nipple and perineum play. The head is really flexible. I had a problem with all the noise from this vibe. It is tiny, but quite whiney.  It sounds like a very loud electric toothbrush or razor, and could be mistaken for one if used in the bathroom. I found the noise a bit distracting. You have to hold the button down for a few seconds to turn it off, so the noise is a bit of a problem. I guess that is a small price for something so small and portable. The toy has a cute key chain attachment. This toy is small enough to through in your purse or pocket and go. Too bad about the volume.

Pros: Small, Portable, Powerful, Easy to charge, Easy to use

Cons: Not waterproof, Volume

Foxy Pocket Toyfriend

My favorite type of sex toy is a slim clitoral vibe that travels well. The Foxy Pocket Toyrfriend met all of my requirements and the price is right. I love that this vibe is discreet in size, waterproof, made of good materials, and quiet.

Materials: Silicone and ABS Plastic

Dimensions: 3.75″ x .75″ (1.75″ insertable)

The Foxy Pocket Toyfriend is a discreet lipstick shaped vibe. They Foxy only comes in pink mimicking lipstick. The Foxy is one of four Pocket Vibes from Toyfriend. I absolutely love this vibe because the price point is just right. At less than $25 you get a small clitoral vibe that you can take anywhere. The vibrations on this have only one speed. The amount of vibrations is buzzy. It is correctly called a tickler because that is exactly what it does. The Foxy is a clit tickler.

The Foxy runs on one AAA battery. The toy unscrews pretty easily. If you screwing the toy the other way it will turn it on. There is an arrow on the op which lines up with the words (ON) (OFF) or (OPEN). The Foxy is waterproof and cleans easily with soap and water. The silicone on the Foxy is smooth and non-tacky. I have a Bubby Toyfriend and it is the same type of material. The Foxy does not come with a storage pouch but it is not a lint/dust magnet either. The Foxy has the word tickler carved into the side on the white base.

Being silicone means this vibe is only compatible with water-based lubrication. The majority of vibrations are at the tip. The tip is slanted like a lipstick which gives it either a broad surface or it can be turned on its end for more pin-point stimulation. I found the Foxy had adequate vibrations to get me off clitorally without frustration. The buzzy vibrations at its only speed were just enough to get me off. The volume of the Foxy was a low buzz. It is barely audible through covers and would probably not be heard through a closed door. This vibe is slim enough to fit between partners during sex, most comfortably during missionary or doggy style positions.

The packaging for the Foxy Pocket Toyfriend was a small cardboard box. The Foxy comes in a small plastic insert which holds it in place and a paper insert in 7 different languages.

Matryoshka Review

“The little lady with the big secret”

The Matryoshka by Rianne S is a little toy that took me completely by surprise. Just like the little babushka dolls, this toy has a surprise inside. This toy is stylish, powerful, and discreet. It has become one of my favorite clitoral vibrators!

Materials: Silicone/ ABS Plastic

Dimensions: 3.5″ x 2″

The Matryoshka is shaped like nothing else I own. It didn’t seem like it would be good for spot-on vibrations but I was so wrong. The toy is powerful and hit my clitoris just right. The small end is just wide enough to sit nestled in my labia. Of course the Matryoshka could be used for shallow internal penetration, but only about 1″ or so. It could also be used on other parts of the body such as the nipples or external perinuem. The smaller end is where almost all of the vibrations are located. The wider end, or base, does not vibrate nearly as much, so it is comfortable to hold onto. I found the vibrations to be quite enough to get me off clitorally. The vibrations are rumbly on the highest setting but more buzzy on the lower settings. The Matryoshka is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably inside my hand. I really liked the design of the Matryoshka and I found it to more comfortable to hold onto than most other clitoral vibes I own.

The Matryoshka is completely rechargeable. It has 5 levels of vibrations and 5 patterns. The toy is very easy to control. To turn it on touch either button. The top (~) button controls the patterns and bottom (o) button controls the speed of vibrations. The buttons on this toy are well placed and i did not find myself accidentally hitting them during play at all. The toy has a locking feature and it arrived locked. To unlock it just hold both buttons at the same time for 5 seconds, it locks the same way. The lock is a nice feature to use for traveling since the last thing I want is for my toy to vibrate in my bag on the way there. A two hour charge gives you two hours of play time with the Matryoshka. The toy is suppose to have a 90 day stand-by charge time.  The Matryoshka is whisper quiet. This toy is quieter then a cell phone on vibrate.

The Matryoshka is made of plastic, but has a silicone covering over it that feels almost velvety. The Matryoshka is completely waterproof in its design. The silicone covering on this toy is smooth and firm. Being silicone means this toy is only compatible with water-based lubrication, do not use silicone based lubrication as it may ruin the finish. The base of this toy is plastic. The plastic bottom has two small metallic circles which match up with the prongs in the charger base. The charging base is a very discreet way to keep the toy out and still have it charged up. The base is a discreet plastic cylinder that is dark purple. The base itself plugs in and the cord has adaptable end for different types of wall outlets. The whole base can be unplugged to keep the toy from overcharging. The stand-by time for the Matryoshka is 90 days and the lights behind the buttons will blink and let you know when it needs a charge. To clean the Matryoshka just use soap and water or a sex toy cleaner. Make sure the toy is completely dry before charging it on the base.

The packaging for the Matryoshka was very nice. It came in a dark purple box with a book of instructions on how to use and care for the toy. The packaging came with a detailed book of all the Rianne S “sexual accessories” and the details of the one year warranty. The box also contained a small gold satin pouch with the name Rianne S on the side. I love that they included a travel pouch with this toy. That makes this toy even more travel friendly!

There is so much to love about this toy! It is discreet, waterproof, powerful, and easy to charge. I highly recommend the Matryoshka!
