Best Mains-Powered Wand 2017

Nothing like a sexy little listicle to get our pulses pounding, so with Valentine’s Day incoming, here’s Cliterati’s round-up of the best mains-powered wands currently on the market. There’s wand for everyone (see what we did there?!).

And before you hit Confirm on the order for your naughty delivery, remember:

The first rule of Wand Club is a good water-based lube, the second is a good antibacterial cleaning spray. The third and most important rule? Before you buy, consider you might need an essential international plug adaptor for your chosen wand.

Now for the fun part –

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 ‘Best Shopping Venue’ in the more generic Qype Awards 2012. Offering adviceclasses and courses in an all-round erotic education, the Sh! ladies seriously know their sex (or should that be Sh!x?).

Based in London’s Hoxton Square and with an established online presence for those further afield, the Sh! team are unusual in that alongside selling luxury lines such as Lelo and nJoy they also design and manufacture many of their own products – think lube, bondage items and harnesses. Perhaps the most impressive side of the Sh! brand is the extensive dildo collection, made of quality silicone in their local studio. If the array of products available is baffling, then you can call or email the Sh! ladies who will be more than happy to talk you through your option: after all, they were extremely patient in the store one evening when Cliterati grilled them about almost every aspect of dildo production!

Following this illuminative ear-bashing we were sent several examples of the Sh! workmanship, including the Mistress Cupid Extra Large Dildo which was a big hit in the office – literally! Yes, it’s a lovely large number, measuring 7 ½” insertable length and a similar circumference towards the base at its most girthy (if you’re able to insert it that deeply).

Sh! Mistress Cupid Extra Large

As with all Sh!-made dildos the shape of the the Mistress Cupid XL is perfect for its intended use: she undulates in all the right areas and tapers off to a Goldilocks width at the tip (not too big, not too small, just right). An expected bonus is that when used with a harness the Mistress Cupid XL is less likely than smaller, slimmer dildos to slip out of the recipient at an inconvenient time. Thanks to its generous proportions it also gives good pushback to the giver, as the soft heart-shaped silicone base feels fantastic under the harness nestled against your clit. If you’re a girth gal who’s into penetration then this big lady is for you. Mistress Cupid Extra Large Dildo also comes in Vibrating form for an additional £25.

Speaking of vibrations, never ones to knock back the opportunity of ever more intimacy, Cliterati also had the pleasure of testing the Sh! Vibrating Strapless Dildo, meant for grinding and frotting rather than thrusting and bouncing. Yes, this is the “look, no hands!” version, where the wearer’s PC muscles engage to hold the ‘egg’ end of the dildo in place, meaning easy access to the clitoris (“look, no harness!”) and leaving your arms free to clasp your lover close. Suitable for both anal and vaginal play, while the ‘egg’ is shaped to be worn by a woman, the opposite end of the Sh! Vibrating Strapless dildo can be used on either gender.

Sh! Vibrating Strapless Dildo

Although small, the Sh! brand removable bullet in this Strapless Dildo is impressive compared to other similar sized bullets on the market. Obviously, the vibrations do get absorbed somewhat by the silicone – it’ll never be as effective as a hard-cover vibrator – but coupled with the Womenstore’s top quality Strapless Dildo it makes for an exquisitely intimate experience. Happily, as always the Sh! silicone is firm but wonderfully accommodating, and whilst the join between the giving and receiving part of the dildo is flexible it doesn’t feel remotely breakable. If you haven’t got Kegels of steel the dildo also works well with a harness for more vigorous fun.

Of course, if you are intending to use your dildos with a harness then you need a suitably gorgeous one to show off its majesty. Cliterati tested the Sh! dildos using our own harnesses from home, but Sh! do make their own beautiful versions in a variety of colours. In fact, we’re completely torn between the red, purple and hot pink versions of the Womenstore’s own-brand Corset Harness – the quality and colours on offer are simply exquisite.

Sh! Corset Harness in red

The Sh! dildos come in a similarly stunning array of colours – as you can see from the handmade marbled Wirly Girly 3 Slim Dildo below. Apart from being gorgeous, in general terms the WG3 is a nicely modest all-rounder: ideal for strap-on sex as it has a good length to it (so is less likely to slip out of the recipient), and great too for anal or those not hung-up on girth as it’s nice and slim rather than intimidatingly wide. Plus, the ridges are tantalizing when used slowly in either orifice. Of course it doesn’t hurt that the Wirly Girly 3 is also simply gorgeous in every shade: it was love at first sight for Cliterati – especially when we learned there was a vibrating version for a mere £8 more!

Sh! Wirly Girly Dildo 3

This outstanding quality also goes for the rest of the Sh!-made products – of which there are many. So remember, if you are overwhelmed by the wealth of choice available then you can easily call or email the Sh! ladies who will be more than happy to talk you through your options. No need to feel embarrassed – not only have the girls heard it all before, but the store isn’t called Sh! for nothing: Discretion is their middle name!

Indeed, at the Womenstore you’ll quickly realise they really do provide an award-winning service: Cliterati would liken it to the difference between heading to a supermarket for an item or enjoying expert advice at a specialist shop (but without the potential intimidation factor, as you’re sure to get a warm welcome at Sh!). For an exceptional experience from start to finish, simply include their paraben-free water-based lube and antibacterial toy cleanerwith your purchases and you’re good to go. And go. And go!

Toy Review: 8″ Realistic Vibrating Cock by Doc Johnson

1786642-300x300

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. Available in two tones, Black or Cream, despite its outmoded electronics it updates this classic conception, thrusting us into the present day thanks to its lifelike look and feel. The shaft has detailed veins and a carefully crafted frenulum and glans (not a phrase one expects to hear every day!). It also has a pair of convincing balls at the bottom – albeit balls with a flat base – for that all-important sack-slap against the body.

In practice the Realistic 8” may have a hefty weight to it, but this above-average appendage won’t make your wrist ache like his big brothers BamJohn Holmes or Jeff Stryker (reviewed here), and it gives more of a stretched and full yet comfortable feel. The integrated battery-powered vibrator may be risible in its old-fashioned form (‘multi-speed’ seems somewhat of an overstatement compared to its contemporaries on the market), but the Realistic 8” works surprisingly well when coupled with such a generously proportioned cock.

There’s also a suction cup at the base with which to stick your new best friend to suitable surfaces such as French windows, bathroom tiles and wooden bedsteads or floors. Indeed, when this sucker gets a good purchase on a surface it’s surprisingly hard to dislodge. In terms of versatility, for couples of any gender combination the suction cup can be used with an O-ring harness as a strap-on, or alone in roleplaying a threesome without the associated politics.

This item comes UR3 version (pictured) – short for Ultra Realistic 3.0. That is to say it’s dual-density: softer to the touch than the usual range but just as firm inside. This ensures it warms easily to your body temperature and feels just as realistic as it looks. In addition, the smell isn’t nearly as strong as some of their other dongs such as the Jeff Stryker.

But still, there is something about Realistic 8” that’s irresistible: Doc Johnson understand what they excel at and they play to those strengths accordingly, with winning user reviews on every occasion. This is a textbook case of ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’. That said, it’s probably is time to update the vibrator…

Doc Johnson Realistic 8” Vibrator is available from Simply Pleasure for £39.99

Toy Review: Zoe Twistty by Maia Toys

2724153-300x300

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 curved and tapered for focused use, with gentle undulating waves molded into its silicone underside. Whether inserted to apply pressure to the G-spot or used with lashings of lube on the clitoris or labia, it’s sure to hit its target. These vibrations are at somewhat of a higher frequency than those emanating from the rumbling, ribbed egg-shaped end.

Indeed, for us the deep bass note of the egg was more effective – impressive, in fact, for a non mains-powered wand – and strong enough for a decent shoulder massage with a squirt of water-based lube. If you liked a challenge you could also insert this bulbous end to enjoy that fuller feeling – perhaps after a warm-up from its slimmer opposite side. If you don’t mind your hand shaking it’s also possible to vibrate both ends simultaneously, allowing you to experiment at will.

Whichever end you choose to use, the rechargeable nature of the Zoe means you need never worry about the batteries running out. Indeed, thanks to the USB charger, helpfully you can even hook it up to your laptop to charge – something you might find useful whilst perusing Maia’s website of colourful Fun Factory-esque delights for your next toy (so many beautiful products, so little time!).

Apart from the eyesore of the deliberate misspelling, if we had any criticism of the Zoe Twistty (ouch!) it would be that the silver inserts of the toy lead to unhygienic edges: in an ideal world it would have the seamless silicone of the Jimmyjane Form collection, for example. However, this issue proves less of a problem once you realise the Twistty is waterproof so you can give it a thorough scrub.

Made with a gorgeous soft silicone in an inoffensive purple shade (no pastels! No pink!) the Zoe Twistty even comes with slinky storage bag. Perfect for solo and partner play of any gender or sexuality, it’s two sex toys in one – and at a fair price too. What’s not to like?

The Zoe Twistty is available from Lovehoney for £54.99


Toy Review: Best Mains-Powered Wand Vibrators

Never ones to rest on our laurels, we 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 experience, for the purposes of fairness Cliterati is merely going to mention its superlative success rate (as well as its unattainable price for many!) and move on to exploring the more standard mains-powered wands available on t’interweb that are actually comparable to one another.

Doxy Wand Massager

Doxy Wand Massager

In first place we have without question the most exciting and ethical sex toy to hit the market in recent years: the Doxy Wand Massager. Flush from winning the coveted ‘Editors Choice’ ETO industry award, this remarkable bit of kit may be designed, engineered and assembled in the UK, yet thanks to its plug top supply unit it can be used all over the world (so, no dangerous Hitachi Wand-style voltage vagaries here!).

The Doxy is also the only Wand to pulse rather than vibrate which, along with the ‘rolling and rumbling’ effect from the metal mechanism inside its head, gives it the edge over its buzzing competitors . As such it’s the only UK MPW to employ an internal system similar to that of the Hitatchi, Yes it’s loud, fairly heavy and occasionally unwieldy, but no more than any other mains-powered Wand. It’s also available in glossy black, white, pink and purple colours (though not all at once!).

In fact, in nearly ever aspect the Doxy Massager sits extremely comfortably over and above its peers: in Cliterati’s opinion you won’t find a better quality mains-powered Wand on the market in Britain, if not the world. Here’s hoping that one day they’ll offer us a lighter travel version so we never have to be without it…

Swan Palm Power Magic Wand Massager Vibrator Review

Palm Power by Swan

Speaking of a lightweight MPW, luxury line Swan is proudly in second place with the ultimate in handbag-friendly fun: the Palm Power. Perfectly named and powerfully driven, somehow this toy sits happily in your hand whilst ably taking you places you’ve never been before – without your arm aching under its weight. This is why it’s our number two: it manages to combine impressive strength despite being a smaller size than its peers.

There are two packs of additional wand head attachments (comprising four different heads in total) available to purchase alongside the initial Wand should you want to expand your Swan collection, but you’ll do just fine with the Palm Power in its original boxed form. Read our full review here.

Palm Power by Swan is available from Simply Pleasure for £74.95

In third place we have a tie: two MPWs as equally favoured amongst the discerning British sex toy shopper as they are in the Cliterati office. So in alphabetical order let’s begin with the Bodywand, which is a classic MPW with a very simple yet extremely effective approach: power = pleasure! We look into this toy and its various accessories in more depth here.

The Bodywand Magic Vibrator is available from Bondara for £57.99

Sharing third place is Lovehoney’s own brand Deluxe Magic Wand. The ‘Magic Wand’ here is important, since apparently Lovehoney have trademarked that particular two-word combination so that only their company can use it. Thankfully, Lovehoney’s Deluxe MPW is ‘magic’ enough to warrant such a term, enabling it to remain a UK bestseller all year round.

Lovehoney’s Deluxe Magic Wand is available from Lovehoney for £49.99

So now you know Cliterati’s favourite few, to get the most out of your chosen Mains Powered Wand all you need to do is add some water-based lube and antibacterial toy cleaner to your virtual shopping basket and you’re good to go!

Oh – and just a reminder that in our previous Best Three Mains Powered Wand list of 2013 we shared our thoughts on Wands in general, including the potential repercussions of over-use of such a fierce personal massage toy. Your thoughts as ever, are welcome.


Toy Review: My Top 12 Sex Toys of 2012 – Find Your Lover The Perfect Sexy Christmas Gift

Wondering what sexy treat to get your lover for Christmas? Well luckily for you (and for me!) I’ve spent much of this year in pursuit of the perfect sex toy, and many testing hours later I’ve come up with my 2012 Top 12. You can thank me later.

1)      Wooden Dildo by The Kinky Drawer

For sheer beauty and exquisite ‘objet’-ness, these handmade dildos remain unsurpassed. If your lover has generic sex toys aplenty, then this will complete their collection nicely.

They also have a bespoke service where you can design your own wooden dildo, from length and girth to shape and ridges. Mine is modelled on my husband Roger: my dream double-team!

Visit The Kinky Drawer

MONA-2_packshotMona 2 by Lelo

My all-time favourite vibrator the Lelo Mona just got dumped for a younger model: welcome the Mona 2.

Ticking both G-spot and clit stim boxes, it may be expensive but with vibrations that strong (I – wait for it – had to turn it…down!) it’s worth every goddamn penny. And you can quote me on that.

From packaging to performance, it really is the perfect gift. ‘Nuff said.

The Mona 2 is available from Lelo for £84

3)      Stronic Eins by Fun Factory

A thrusting dildo rather than a vibrator, this is the future of vaginal masturbation, and for good reason it’s the hottest sex toy on the market right now. Best for internal rather than external play, the Stronic is like nothing you’ve ever tried before. It takes a moment or two to get used to using a pulsating product, but once you’re there we guarantee you won’t be going back – just don’t forget to buy a Fun Factory charger too if you haven’t already got one. Fucking fantastic.

The Stronic Eins is available from Simply Pleasure for £128.95

4)      Pillow Foreplay

To the untrained eye the Pillow Foreplay is a completely crazy idea: in layman’s terms it’s an adjustable inflatable pillow with a hole in which you stick your favourite vibrator.

You then ride the pillow-vibe combo like a cowgirl, or even clasp it missionary style above you if you prefer. It’s so simple it works like a dream, also proving popular with male partners due to the visual aspect. Plus it can be used during sex as a handy prop for the more athletic positions.

The Pillow Foreplay has to be tried to be believed, and luckily there are three different versions for girls, guys and gays alike. I’m now a believer – especially as they also do a bespoke service meaning you can have it in latex, leather or even with BDSM-friendly D rings should you so require. Highly recommended.

Visit Pillow Foreplay

5)      The Matryoshka by Rianne S

With phenomenal packaging this really is a truly gorgeous gift: our jaws literally dropped when we saw The Matryoshka’s box – and that was before we’d even opened it!

As its Russian Doll namesake suggests, The Matryoshka is beautifully feminine in shape, and has its own presentation case (pictured) which you can use to conceal it as it charges (although you will need to buy a European plug converter separately).

Not only is it genuinely gorgeous and unique, but it works a treat: surprisingly powerful, it’s the ideal clit stim toy. We were so impressed we had to test it again, and again and again…

Rianne’s Forbidden Fruit apple vibrator is also said to be outstanding, but we’ve yet to test it ourselves.

Like Rianne’s Forbidden FruitThe Matryoshka is classy to the extreme – in other words, the perfect present for any discerning diva. After all, you can’t go wrong with something so right. Exquisite.

Visit Rianne S

6)      Bloom by Leaf

Leaf make the most gorgeous green eco toys we’ve ever seen at Cliterati HQ. I’ve tried the fresh and flexible Bloom and was amazed not only at how powerful its separate vibrations were at both ends, but impressed at the unique design which allows you to reach your required intensity simply by keeping the button pressed until you get there (rather than flicking through the vibrations level by level).

Presented in a Fairtrade-style tea box with a cute canvas storage pouch, this phthalate-free silicone toy is an absolute beauty. Clever and cool, it brings a whole new meaning to the term tea-bagging!

Bloom is available from Simply Pleasure for £89.95Other Leaf toys are also available.

7)      Cupcake Vibrator by Shiri Zinn

This little lady is a true delight: a vibrator that looks like a silicone cupcake – complete with cheeky cherry – and feels like the best foreplay toy you could ever hope to own.

At a perfectly reasonable £35 it’s utterly seductive – especially with lashings of lube – and the icing on the cake is a retro baking tin. Well, actually the icing on the cake is the icing on the cake, and then the icing on the cake of the icing on the cake is the tin, metaphorically speaking.

Anyway, if you’re still with me, the Cupcake Vibrator is an appetising addition to the sex toy table, and like most delicious treats is even better to share. Bon appétit!

The Cupcake Vibrator is available from Vibrator Kingdom for £34.99

8)      Pony Play kit: Leather HarnessGlass Butt Plug Pony Tail and Icicles Glass-leather Dildo-flogger from Lovehoney

If Pony Play’s been on your to-do list for some time but you’re not sure where to start, then I’ve put together this tempting taster trio to get you geared up for the horsey highway to heaven.

First up is the Leather Harness: this version’s no-frills and functional so perfect for beginners. However, you’ll need to buy your own presentation box for it as it comes in a plain plastic bag – not very sexy!

Secondly we have the Glass Vibrations Pony Tail Glass Butt Plug. There are several versions of this on the market, including plastic plugs, but this looked the best quality and least synthetic hair for the price, and it certainly felt fantastic when worn: an extremely erotic experience to say the least. A surprisingly lovely item in itself.

Finally we tried the handblown Icicles Glass Cat-O-Nine-Tails Flogger, which not only has sexy suede strings but also doubles up as a rather classy glass dildo: a sensuous toy with a welcome sting in its tail.

Just ensure in advance that your partner’s up to experimenting in this area, and with Lovehoney’s superfast delivery you’ll be saddled up in no time.

9)      Harness and Small Pegging Dildo by BS Is Nice

For prostate stimulation and general anal play, this is our preferred pegging dildo set. The adjustable harness fits like a dream, the pegging dildo is the perfect size – not too big or too small – and if you’re female you can even buy the additional Capsula dildo to insert inside yourself as you pleasure your partner.

Image courtesy of Cara Sutra

Yes, finally it’s your turn to give as good as you get – especially if you purchase one of Vibrator Kingdom’s bespoke storage boxes to go with it. What would you want written on yours?

Leather Harness and Small Pegging Dildo by BS Is Nice are available from Vibrator Kingdom for £54.99 each.

10)  Latex spanking Skirt and Slut Paddle from Lovehoney

Rubber Girl Latex Wear Rubber Spanking Skirt

If you know a woman who likes a good spanking then she’ll love this: a latex skirt with the rear removed for easy arse access.

Have fun glossing the skirt together using Pjur Latex Shine Spray and then pair with Sportsheets’ leather Slut paddle for maximum effect – and schwing!

These brand spanking new items are available from Lovehoney.

11)  SPUNK Lube

A new addition to the bedroom, this ground-breaking lube that looks exactly like spunk comes in three different kinds: Silicone for longer sex sessions or shower play; Hybrid for use with silicone toys; and Pink, just for the fuck of it.

If you or your man have a fetish for bukkake, cream pies or threesome MMF fantasies, then this Spunk Lube is for you. Plus it’s a genuinely great product, and we can’t help thinking that as well as the Spunk Lube trio selection we’d like luscious Spunk Lube CEO Jeff in our stockings for Christmas too please, Santa!

Visit Spunk Lube US (with international deliveries aplenty)

Visit UberKinky

12)  Vinyl Fitted Fetish Sheet from Lovehoney

I’m not going to pretend this is the most glamorous of gifts, but it may just turn out to be one of the most common-sense presents.

Yes, I realise common sense isn’t sexy, but when you learn that a vinyl sheet is ideal if you’re a squirter, into sploshing, water sports, getting oiled up or even just for fucking during a period, this is an unbeatable present as far as practicality is concerned. And that, my friend, is sexy.

Various Vinyl sheets are available from Lovehoney

OK, I lied – there’s one more, and a very lucky number it is too:

13)  Antibacterial Toy Cleaning Spray by Lelo

Essential for any sex toy enthusiast: does what it says on the tin. You need this in your life!

Antibacterial Toy Cleaning Spray is available from Lelo for £6.90


Toy Review: We-Vibe Thrill

Being a fan of the (at least!) two-pronged approach to masturbation involving a pair of vibrators, I’m always on the look-out for the one single toy which successfully incorporates both clitoral and G-spot stimulation. There are many products on the market which claim to do this, but personally I’ve yet to find one which hits the spot(s) as well as two separate vibes do.

Having been disappointed many years ago by the Rock Chick (I’m sure subsequent versions have improved it exponentially), I wasn’t certain how I’d find the similarly-shaped We-Vibe Thrill. Although it is a bit of a challenge due to his size, my well-hung husband and I enjoy using our We-Vibe 3 together – ditto the similar Lelo version, the Tiani 2 – but these are couples toys, and I was dubious as to whether the Thrill would pack the same punch on a solo tip.

Granted, the Thrill’s slightly longer and wider at the internal end, and there’s a handle to ably manoeuvre it into place over your clitoral area (a handle which, by the way, I think is design genius), but would that be enough to deliver what the Thrill promises: “an elegant vibrator that stimulates both the G-spot and clitoris” – in other words, the toy I’ve long been searching for?

Well, in my opinion I’d say that We-Vibe got some of that correct with regards to clitoral stimulation – but then we’re not all physically made genitally identical. Let me explain: although the Thrill’s external vibrator was great (though not incredible), and the whole toy was wonderfully flexible and didn’t pinch like the Lelo Ina 2 rabbit (which because of the short space between the long internal arm and the external finger can painfully pinch your clitoral area rather than caress it, depending on your body), for me the internal arm got nowhere near my G-spot.

That might be anatomical rather than anything, but just like the aforementioned Ina 2 I’d say that the We-Vibe Thrill could turn out to be an expensive gamble – not because it has the potential to be painful like the Ina 2, but because it might not satisfy you internally – i.e.: deliver at least half of what the sales pitch says it should.

Fortunately, however, although you can’t try before you buy, we’re here to help you at least take an educated guess on a product based on your likes and dislikes.

For example: I may be a ‘size queen’ simply because of personal taste and because I’m used to Mr More’s unusually large appendage, but I have female friends who for medical reasons, or just through sheer preference would rather engage with a small cock (yes lads, there really are women like that out there). I suspect these ladies would find this toy easier to take than your standard rabbit. In fact, I have one particular friend who would welcome the Thrill for that very reason, and if she still wants it once I’ve thoroughly washed then sterilised mine with Lelo Antibacterial Cleaner Spray, then she’s welcome to it!

But if like me you enjoy ‘feeling full’, I suspect the Zini Roae Love Luxury Rechargeable Vibrator (which Lovehoney also sell) would be more likely to deliver on G-spot pressure. However, I haven’t tried it yet, so I can’t say for sure. So if you like your men big (or even bigger) and specifically want something from the We-Vibe range, I suggest you buy the We-Vibe 3 for use with a partner.

Meanwhile, for me the search for a single ultimate clitoral and G-spot toy continues: it does take a bit of coordination and arm ache for a two-pronged wankathon, and I’d love to say the We-Vibe Thrill was the holy grail I’d been looking for, but unfortunately for me it didn’t really hit either spot for which it was intended. But we’re all different. Personally, I’m still on the look for a toy that does it all, and at least it will be happy hunting while I’m exploring all the options! I’ll keep you posted…

The We-Vibe Thrill is available from Lovehoney for £119.99

The We-Vibe 3 is available from Lovehoney for £99.99

The Zini Roae Love Luxury Rechargeable Vibrator is available from Lovehoney for £119.99
