PeridiseThe latest toy I've enjoyed reviewing is a markedly different type of sexual aid called the Aneros Peridise.

These Unisex Anal PC Toys are unique and are available in different sizes and shapes. They are made of a rigid white plastic polymer, are completely waterproof, and are latex and phthalate free.

The Peridise Advanced Pack contains two Peridise toys. These particular toys measure 4 inches in length, the larger having a 2.5 inch circumference while the thinner is 2 inches.

Unlike other anal toys, you are supposed to begin with the larger of the two and then work your way down. In this case, the thinner the toy, the more intense the orgasm.

The original intent of this toy was medicinal, designed as a way to use the healing power of massage in the anal-rectal region. And it does indeed promote the health of this area with invigorating benefits and increased blood flow.

But scientists soon realized an unexpected benefit. The large number of nerve endings and muscles in the anus combined with the action of peristalsis (organized muscle contractions that occur throughout the digestive tract) created very pleasurable sensations and, interestingly, much stronger orgasms.

Hurray for science!

Anally erotic as I am, I couldn't wait to give these things a try.

I decided to use the Peridise in solo play only, Sarah's Happy Time. Anal is not for everyone and this type of play can be a very personal thing.

Additionally, these toys are extremely rigid, and perhaps aren't really designed to be used in tandem with your partner occupying your other orifice. Ahem.

So after ensuring cleanliness and applying some lube, I slowly inserted the larger of the two. Partially. Just the tip. This is the purpose of this specialty toy.

After minimal insertion, you're supposed to relax and allow your body's natural reactions to take over. It was almost maddening for me to stop at this point so I decided to add a bit of vibrator play. That worked for awhile but soon I could feel fluctuations and the beginning waves of anal contractions.

With a bit of clenching and relaxing, a sort of tug of war game ensued with my parts, and I found myself in an unexpected but powerful orgasm.

The Peridise moves by itself along with your own body movements. It's possible to draw the tool in and out with your own muscles, adding to the pleasurable sensations. You'll feel your anus unconsciously reacting, adding lovely little twinges and miniature orgasms and soon the peristaltic waves will become stronger and more rapid.

With practice, you'll have further control. And the unique shapes of the Peridise toys will have differing pleasurable effects. And stronger orgasms.

It's a specialty tool designed for experienced anal play, and I must confess I've yet to share it with my partner. But it's well worth the effort to develop the skills.

Here's what Babeland has to say:

Come one, come all with the superlative all-orgasms-intensified, all-genders-satisfied Peridise anal plugs. No one knows your butt—and how to please it—better than Aneros, and they’ve sculpted two sets of plugs sure to find your sweet spot comfortably and easily: just gripping the Peridise induces involuntary contractions in the anal muscle, generating regional orgasms (buttgasms?), or intensifying traditional orgasms for men and women. Get two larger plugs in the beginner set, and two smaller plugs in the Advanced (stronger muscles can grip a smaller toy). Insertion is easy with the thoughtfully tapered head, and the design allows for easy movement and a comfortable hands-free and wearable fit.

  • Size/Beginner: 4" x 3/5", 4" x 4/5"
  • Size/Advanced: 3-3/4” x 7/10”, 3-3/4" x 9/10"
  • Material: Hard plastic

Tantus Ripple

Tantus RippleAny product from Tantus is worth its weight in orgasms, and the Ripple is no exception. While I didn't find it adequate as a standalone, this little silicone dildo is absolutely perfect as an anal adjunct during other activities.

It's a bit short for a harness, in my opinion, 'cause even if the "insertable length" is adequate, there's the booty to consider. In a harness, the entire insertable length is not gonna make it through the back door. Manual use, however, is delightful. Not so big that it draws all your attention. Not so small that you can forget about its presence. Just right.

And, for those couples wanting to introduce anal play for him, this product is totally non-threatening. Hell, it's almost cute. Cleanup's a breeze with 100% silicone, too!

Until next time...

peace & passion,

Here's what EdenFantasys has to say:

Completely flexible and suitable for harness use. Made of 100% medical grade quality silicone, the Ripple plug is flexible, hypoallergenic and warms to the body. Toy is boilable, bleachable in a 10% solution and dishwasher safe.

Best Sex Toy Reviewers is an annual list compiled by Domina Doll and Scarlet Lotus Sexgeek. Only reviewers who reviewed during the year of 2008 were considered, there will be a list for 2009 next year.

Each reviewer was rated separately by two people (Domina Doll and Scarlet Lotus did not rate themselves, their second rating came from a third party). The ratings were on a scale of one to five in four areas: Content, Organization, Originality, and Regularity. Each reviewer got a score out of 20 by each person and then the scores were put together to make a final score out of 40. Those final scores were ranked from high to low to get the list below

There were many ties. In cases where reviewers had nominations the number of nominations were the deciding factor for the ties. In cases where reviewers had the same number of nominations Domina Doll and Scarlet Lotus decided the order.

We recognize that this list is highly subjective. This is in no way a definitive list of reviewers, it is simply our list, and you can do with it as you will. We did use finite measurements, as discussed above, to create this list, but ultimately it is our own list. However, lists are fun to have and be able to point to.

We scoured the internet for reviewers. Pleasurists was a great source of reviewers, but it was not the only source, as many of the reviewers above have never participated in a Pleasurists. If you are not on the list and you reviewed in 2008 the chances are we simply did not know about you and couldn’t find you in our many searches.

Black Large Rubber Whip

Black Large Rubber WhipRemember elementary school? Remember those little rubber bands that the class bully used to fire at unsuspecting kids? Remember how they stung? The kind of slightly delayed pinch-burn? Now, magnify that by about 100 strands, remove the humiliation (unless that's your kink), and add sexual arousal.

Rubber stings, my friend. It's so unlike the thud-caress of a leather flogger. This little number might not look as capable as its big, deerhide cousin, but what it lacks in visual impressiveness, it more than makes up in sensory stimulation. With the same swing, the Black Large Rubber Whip from Babeland can deliver welt-producing blows.

Or, used in a gentler fashion, the strands tickle and tease. Should they acquire a glaze of lube or bodily fluid, they can easily be washed off (unlike leather, which requires more involved cleaning procedures). This is a great addition to the kink enthusiast's toy box, and its $30 price tag won't set you back.

Until next time...

peace & passion,

Here's what Babeland has to say:

Brush the soft strands of the Black Large Rubber Whip across your lover’s body, and you’ll hear soft sighs; snap it against an unsuspecting behind, and you’ll hear delighted gasps. The largest of our rubber whips (see also Pink Medium and Red Mini, sold separately) this black stallion really delivers the look and feel of a rough ride. With a little restraint, you’ll be able to build up the sensation from light strokes to an intense climax. Makes a great gift for couples or singles looking to experiment with kink.
