Waterproof Double Penetrator

Waterproof Double PenetratorA Toys for Tarts guest review:
Wow. And likewise yum. This lovely toy is my new favorite. The batteries pop right in, and then the cap locks down, which has the advantage of keeping water out of the battery compartment and also prevents a sudden loss of power if the user twists the cap a little too hard. The jelly covering is softish, but the vibe itself is rigid enough to be inserted without the gyrations needed with the Scorpion.

The circumference on this toy is perfect—the vaginal arm is big enough to make this user feel full and a bit stretched, but not so big as to be painful. The anal probe is perfectly sized as well.The veins are raised enough to be palpable and add a wonderful sensation when thrusting. The speeds range from a gentle caress to “oh god ohgod ohgod DAMN” with a slight twist of the cap. The motor’s placement towards the top of the vaginal shaft makes deep thrusting an exquisite pleasure.

So far, the Double Penetrator has proven to be as waterproof as it claims to be. After five or six uses in the shower or the tub, it shows no sign of water in the battery compartment. All in all, this is a wonderful toy for solo or couple play.

Overall, this toy is a definite YES, and even better, it’s on sale right now.

Ring of Xtasy

Ring of Xtasy
Cock rings always look so much bigger in pictures, and this one is no exception. With your garden-variety bullet-toting cock ring, quality is gauged in two ways: (a) vibration, and (b) fit. Unfortunately, this particular product gets a B- on both prongs of the quality test. It's a decent enough toy, but the bullet vibe isn't very powerful & it burned through a set of batteries in one session. (Okay, granted I was riding it for a while, but even so ...)

From my perspective, the only enhancement provided by the toy was the hardness of the bullet sandwiched between my partner and me. It was nice to grind against. My partner reported no enhancement (beyond the enjoyment of watching me do said grinding *wink*).

The blurb says:
Made of super stretch silicone this heart-shaped ring is soft with a snug and comfortable fit. The mega powered bullet sends the bunny ears into strong rapid motion for steady clitoral stimulation. Easy on/off push button for the bullet. Embedded hearts on the ring aid in providing friction and labial stimulation. Requires 2 button cell batteries - 2 sets are included.

Soft, yes. Comfortable, yes. Snug, no. "Mega powered," no. Easy on/off, yes. The "embedded hearts" (i.e., little bumps) didn't add to the friction that I could discern.

This is, unfortunately, a product that will most likely spend the rest of its life in the bottom of my toy bag.
