The Mangasm brand of male sex toys contacted me recently to do a review of the Mangasm Edge. The Edge provides perineum and prostate stimulation with a variation of vibrations. The shaft measures 5 inches from top to bottom with an almost 3 inch circumference at its thickest. The rounded perineum tab is 2 inches in circumference. The chord that connects the toy to the remote is 23 inches. It takes 2 AA to power the blue battery compartment. Keep in mind to remove batteries from toys before you store them in order to keep them lasting longer.

With an easy push of the thumb the vibrations turn on and go from low to high and then back down and off again. The strength of the vibrations is fairly powerful.

The Mangasm Edge is hard and unyielding. It’s smooth, but there is a seam. The seam can barely be felt with your fingers and can’t be felt while in use. There’s no drag.

Since the Edge is made from plastic, feel free to use silicone, oil, or water based lubricants. Since it has a chord coming from it, don’t submerge it in water. Toy wipes, toy cleaner, or an antibacterial soap and water bath would be a good idea for cleaning. Keep in mind that you need to use a condom if sharing.

The Mangasm Buzz is a product geared towards men as a popular vibrating prostate toy. However, it also works to stimulate the G-spot in women. It’s not large or intimidating. Rather, it’s easy to use either solo or with a partner.

The Mangasm Buzz is made of silicone, which is extremely body safe. The bullet inside, however, is made of plastic. The silicone part can be cleaned in a multitude of ways, toy cleaner, toy wipes, tossed into the top rack of the dishwasher (just make sure there are no dishes in there along with it and there’s no soap) or boil it for about three minutes. You can also use the wipe-down method – antibacterial soap and water. Since silicone is non-porous, it’s very easy to clean and get rid of unwanted chemicals and smells.

As for the plastic bullet, you can submerge it – it’s waterproof! Some toys have a waterproof seal around them, but that doesn’t mean that they actually keep the water out. A quick waterproof test where we turn the toy on and submerge it, then remove it from the water and dry it off before checking inside the battery  case for water will tell us if the toy really is waterproof or not. In this case there was no water inside the battery case, therefore the bullet is waterproof! It makes clean-up much easier for the bullet. A quick antibacterial soap and water bath is usually the easiest way to go.

Here comes the disclaimers… always use a condom when sharing between partners and I’m sure you know that it’s never a good idea to go from anal to vaginal. Let’s keep it safe, people!

Now, the Mangasm Buzz has some drag to it, so be careful only to use water based lubes, as silicone and oil based can destroy its finish. The Mangasm Buzz is light, and only slightly flexible. It does have a seam that runs over the entire toy. It can barely be seen. If you push down hard, you can feel it, but it can’t be felt during use.

The design of the Mangasm Buzz is interesting. It looks very ergonomic. Let’s start from the bottom of the toy. The base looks to have enough room to get a good grip on the toy. The neck is slim, which is a good sign in anal toys, and then on one side, the toy flares a bit, like a belly, and the opposite side, it has two small raised bumps. They both lead up to the softly pointed head of the toy. The base is about 3 inches across. The neck (sans bullet) is about 2 ¼ in circumference. The circumference then widens to about 3 ½. The total length is about 4 ½ inches. You can insert probably 3 inches of that.

I was very impressed with all of the levels of vibrations, escalation, and pulses that this small bullet was able to produce. Powered by only three watch batteries, the power from the bullet was felt even at the tip of the silicone toy. Its power was light to moderate, but still impressive considering that it was being run on three watch batteries and being felt through a silicone body. Here are the functions of the Mangasm Buzz:

Low vibration

Medium vibration

High vibrations

High pulse

Four quick pulses on high and then a steady vibration

Escalates up on each level of vibration then down

Two pulses up on each level of vibration, elevating up

If you’d like for the bullet to turn off, regardless of the function that it’s on, simply hold it down for a second or two.

A few negatives about the Mangasm Buzz:

It’s pink. – Not everyone’s going to love the color.

There could have been more instructions or information with the product.

Getting the bullet out was like an act of Congress. – This sucker took FOREVER to come out.

HINT: Maybe try a little lube so it’ll slide in easier next time.

What I really liked about the Mangasm Buzz:

Hell, I like pink!

I was impressed with all the functions that it had.

Body-safe material – nice.

Good for both sexes – always a plus!

If you’re looking for a lifetime partner for your butt – look no further than Njoy Pure Plugs. They come in three sizes: small, medium, and large. Right now the small and I are very much enjoying our time together. The Njoy Pure Plugs are made from stainless steel, yep – hardcore stainless. Sling one of these puppies through your Mama’s kitchen window and see what happens. It’s hard and smooth with no drag at all, however, I’m sure you’ll still use lube if you’re sliding this guy up your ass. Take your pick, silicone, water, or oil based. You can use all three. I use Maximus – it’s my personal preference.

The small one weighs about a pound. It feels heavy in your hand. Hell, it feels heavy in your ass! That’s one of the things I like about it, though. It’s made completely of hypoallergenic, medical-grade, stainless steel that’s non-porous. This ensures that your toy will never degrade or corrode. As with all stainless steel toys, the material is extremely easy to care for.  For everyday cleaning, use toy wipes, toy cleaner, or even a bath with antibacterial soap and water will do;  just remember to wipe dry after cleaning, and don’t use anything abrasive against the toy as it will scratch its shiny, mirror finish.  You can boil or toss it in the dishwasher to sterilize the toy. I store my Pure Plug in its Njoy box. It’s perfect for storage and would be a wonderful box to use if you were gifting the Pure Plug to someone!

The small plug is for beginners, but it’s the same design as the medium and large. The handle is flat and thin with an oblong shape. It makes a perfect fit for between the cheeks. The handle connects flawlessly to the thin neck which thickens as it moves upwards towards an almost phallic-shaped head. The length of the handle is about 2 inches. The neck is about an inch in length and 1 ½ inches in circumference at its widest, near its head. The head has a 3 inch circumference.

It inserts perfectly. I’ve had other plugs that didn’t look anything like the Njoy line. They looked like they were just plugging up your ass. The Njoy line looks a little more ergonomic and much more elegant; it just reminds me of a pacifier for an ass. The head of the plug comes to an effortless point which seems to make insertion easier. There are no visible seams. The craftsmanship is excellent. This is literally a toy that will last a lifetime.

The Husband and I love using this plug while he’s fucking me. I will say that I did try to go ahead and move up to the medium and I just wasn’t ready. I’m really taking my time and enjoying the small. I have no issues inserting it by myself. There’s no pain or discomfort. I only feel the weight, which I LOVE. The Husband loves the weight of the plug and how it feels when we move into different sexual positions.

I really can’t say enough good things about the weight of the Njoy plug. Although the small is clearly for beginners, it’s an investment that I’ve been thrilled with making. Don’t be detoured by the price tag. In this case, this is money well spent on my ass.

His office door opened and there he stood.

She stopped in front of him.

He opened his palm to her.

She gently pushed the warm, silky material into his hand.

He cocked his head with some surprise.

She’d already taken them off.

The Sex and Mischief Feathered Nipple Clamps by Sportsheets are made from a mixture of materials – Feathers, Metals, and Rubber. The feathers are rooster feathers. They measure about 4 ½ inches in length and are black in color. They feel very delicate to the touch. The soft plumes are easy to tease a nipple before a clamp is applied. I’d be wary of getting these wet, as I’m just not sure how they would react to fluids.

The metal is what holds the plumes together and what creates the actual clamp, The metal is nickel-free and seems to be well-made. If you feel the feel to clean the metal, antibacterial soap and water on a warm cloth should do fine, but be very careful so as not to get anything on the feathers. The metal measures 2 ¼ inches.

The rubber pieces that fit over the head and the bottom of the clamps are easy to remove. You can also clean these with antibacterial soap and water. Do so away from the clamps so as not to damage the feathers by accident. These guys are a little over ½ and inch.

The feathers give me a tickled and arousing feeling. While rubbing them up and down my neck, I have to stop to remind myself to squeeze my legs together! It’s completely obvious as to what these clamps are. The feathers may pretty them up a bit, but especially at 7 inches, it’s totally obvious that they are nipple clamps. I really like the design of these. I just wish that the feathers weren’t so fragile when it comes to getting them wet. That’s not to say that the craftsmanship is bad. I gave a few nice tugs on both sets of feathers and neither had any give to them.

The Feathered Nipple Clamps come in a small plastic bag that sits in a larger cardboard box. I wouldn’t necessarily describe the box as discreet, due to the Words “Sex & Mischief” as well as a woman with naked breasts wearing only the nipple clamps all over it. My suggestion? Recycle the cardboard box and find smaller storage for these clamps.

I took my nipple piercing out and tried the clamps with the screw about halfway out. I quickly realized that wasn’t going to do. I untwisted the screw the entire way and, although that helped, It still didn’t give me the bite that I needed. I decided to take off both of the rubber covers and I put the clamp back on. That finally gave me something more on the level of what I was looking for in terms of nipple pain.

Another thing that I noticed was that the tips of the nipple clamps aren’t extremely broad. I like that. That allows them to fit a wider range of nipples.

The Sensua Suede Whip – Ok I’m having trouble calling it a whip – it’s a flogger. The flogger is pretty much for lighter play but if taken to its extremes it can leave quite a good little sting. It’s really well made and I believe it will hold up for quite a while. As for marks, I think if you worked a concentrated area you might get some, but you have to take a lot of things into consideration when you are talking about marks. Some people don’t mark easily, some people do. I don’t. I whipped the hell out of myself on my arm and got nothing. Well, that’s not exactly true. The black suede falls do leave a tiny bit of color behind, but it’s nothing major, and it comes right off with a wipe down   The falls windmill perfectly and, I think this would be a great flogger for those who are just beginning to learn how to top. It can take them from brand spanking – (spanking…I said spanking – get it?) new to more of an intermediate player.

I’ll be honest, when I first opened the box; I was shocked to see how small it was. I was a little let down. I thought it was going to be a huge disappointment, Turns out, I love it. It makes for a great warm-up toy for me. It gives me a good idea how much someone new to bottoming can take and what they like on the toy front.

At half a pound, it’s really easy to control. The weight of the handle is heavier than the 40 suede falls. Part of what gives the flogger so much weight is the plastic handle and metal ball at the top of the flogger. There’s also a thick metal band that runs right above the falls. The black-tinted, plastic handle has the LELO name engraved into it. The handle is a little over 5.5 inches. The falls are about 8.5 inches, making the total length of the flogger about 14 inches.

It’s really comfortable to hold and use, which makes it a good purchase for even the most inexperienced S/M user. Do keep in mind though; this little flogger can leave quite the sting. Depending on how you swing it can be a little thuddy – If you just let the falls drop over the area in question, but I’m really more inclined to leave this little flogger in the stingy category. The suede falls are so thin and each tongue feels like a small sting when used with a strong enough force.

I decided to go with the black, but you can get the Sensua Suede Whip in red and purple as well. It’s best to hang all of your floggers, but unfortunately, LELO decided not to give us anything to hang this one by. I’d suggest laying it flat and out of the sun so that the falls aren’t disturbed. Technically, you can use the handle for insertion, but you really don’t want the suede falls anywhere near bodily fluids. When it comes to the falls, use a good suede cleaner and soap and water for the handle.

My flogger came in a small black box, similar to what other LELO toys have arrived in, except there was a piece of tissue paper in there…to make it more …fancy?

The Luxe Rejuvenate is a small, handheld vibrator. It works best to stimulate the G-spot, clitoris, the testicles, perineum, and when covered with a condom, the anal cavity. It’s made from ABS plastic with a PU coat, which is hypoallergenic, latex and phthalates-free.  It has a very smooth, silky feel to it, except for the seam running all the way around the toy. That seam can’t be felt during use, but it’s still outlandishly there. The Luxe Rejuvenate is firm and unyielding. It’s not going to bend. The toy feels really light in your hands. I think it weighs 1.7 ounces. The length is almost 5 inches if you follow the curve of the toy.  The diameter of the flat face of the toy is about an inch. Speaking of which, it reminds me of the flat face that Gigi and Ella have; only the Luxe is more round than oval. The Luxe also just fits perfectly in your hand. I haven’t experienced any drag with it, but if you do, feel free to use silicone or water based lube with it. Maximus is my go-to when it comes to water-based lubrication.

I can feel the vibrations in the head of the toy and not the controls. This isn’t one that’s going to make your fingers numb. The Luxe is powered by two AAA batteries tuck snugly into the back bottom of the product; however, closing the battery compartment is just odd. I have no other words for it. Funky little thing that it is.

I really wish that Cal Exotics would make their products waterproof if they’re going to advertise an item as being so all over their box. Unfortunately, even with the protective band, the Luxe failed a water test – badly. Back to the positives, it’s small and it doesn’t look phallic in shape. It could be stashed away in a panty drawer or taken on a shopping trip with your Mother-In-Law when you need to slip into the bathroom for a much needed stress relieving break.  Overall, it doesn’t look as if it’s going to fall apart, but it’s not going to win “Toy of the Year,” either.

The Luxe Rejuvenate escalates, pulsates, and vibrates. It has two buttons. The top one is a simple On/Off button that will turn the toy on and off at any point during its use. Once it’s turned on, the LED lights will glow and you can press the bottom button to get cranking’.

  1. Steady vibration on low
  2. Steady vibration on medium
  3. Steady vibration on high
  4. Escalates through all vibrations
  5. Pulsates on high
  6. Quick pulsations on high
  7. Pulse, pulse, pulse, steady vibration on high

The Lux isn’t extremely loud, but it isn’t the quietest toy I’ve ever heard either. You could probably get away with going at it while under the covers, door shut, as long as something else was running in your room – think T.V. or radio. As I said before, the Luxe is fairly discreet so storing it in your panty drawer should be fine. If you have other storage options, go ahead. Personally, I’d toss the box as it takes up too much room and obviously, the information isn’t really accurate.

When you are ready to clean your Luxe Rejuvenate, antibacterial soap and water is always an easy choice. You can also use toy cleaners or toy wipes. Take your batteries out between uses as it saves on battery life.

Honestly, I’ve never found myself a fan of Cal Exotics products. They are on the cheaper side of sex toys and there’s usually something about the toy that makes it pretty obvious as to why. If a product advertises its ability to be waterproof, it should be. The seam is huge. The battery compartment fits together oddly. Unfortunately, the Luxe didn’t impress me. Although the vibrations, escalations, and pulsations are almost a mixture of rumbly and buzzy (and I love rumbly) – I’m still not impressed, but it’s better than you average Cal Exotics product. The price point for this guy is way off, though!

The Icicles No. 2 is wonderful if you love glass and all of its benefits. If you’ve ever wondered what all that “popping sensation” was that people have spoken about, or if you know that you like the popping sensation, you might also be interested in this dildo. From either end it can accommodate almost anyone. The Icicles No.2 can be fun if it’s being used by yourself or a group of 20, anally too – just be careful with that.

You’re also going want to be careful because it gets way slippery with lube. You can use any type of lube that you like – silicone, water, or oil, but start with just a tiny drop and see how that goes. Trust me; it’s easier to add more than take some away. Besides, since the glass is so slick and smooth, it won’t take much to have it slipping right out of your hands and landing on the floor.

If it does land on the floor, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll break. The Icicles No. 2 is actually made of Borosilicate glass. These dildos are like babies, they’re much more resilient than you think. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve dropped my nieces and they’ve turned out fine. And this kind of glass won’t erupt into a million little tiny slivers of stabby needles. It would simply snap into a few large pieces. This is much better for the bottoms of your feet.

It’s going to be slippery when you clean it too! It’s non-porous, which is great – body safe. Typically I just use antibacterial soap and water. I’m a part of the soap and water gang. You also have plenty of other options. Once a month a do a deep cleaning on all my toys, so you might find a method here that suits you best for your toys that are made of Borosilicate glass. It’s fine to boil your all-glass toys or even put them in the top rack of your dishwasher, but remember that glass holds temperature extremely well and needs to sit to cool off. A good idea when it comes to boiling a glass toy is to take a cloth and lay it against the inside of the pot so that the toy doesn’t have direct contact with the metal. Always remember to check the manufacturer’s instructions before sterilizing your glass toy via the boiling/dishwasher methods.

Here are a few quick and easy ways to disinfect/sanitize and clean your glass toys:
1. Use a clean, soft cloth and mix ¼ cups of household bleach with 2 ¼ cups of water.
2. Toy wipes
3. Toy cleaner – With my experience with the ingredients in toy cleaners, I would suggest rinsing the cleaner off even if the cleaner says that you don’t have to.
4. Use a bit of rubbing alcohol.
When it comes to glass you have the option of temperature play. My suggestion is to let your toy sit in a bowl of warm or cold water before playing with them for added sensations. Touch the toy to the inside of your wrist before beginning play with your partner in order to make sure that the temperature isn’t too extreme. Also, keep in mind that one of the main reasons for cracks in glass toys (other than drops, obviously) is going from one intense temperature to another. This often happens during temperature play or cleaning. Now, you might have heard it from a friend’s cousin that they put their glass dildo in the refrigerator or the microwave and it worked fine – not a scratch, but I’m not going to advise it. First of all, I don’t know the settings on your microwave or fridge. Second, I don’t know that they really did that. Third, I doubt that they really did that.

The Icicles No. 2 weighs 9 ounces and has nine balls stacked on top of each other, each one smaller than the one below it. The circumference of the largest, bottom ball is 4 ¾ and the circumference of the smallest, top ball is 2 ¼ inches. The globular shapes are wonderful for those who enjoy the popping sensation as a toy enters the vagina. Be careful when it comes to thrusting this toy, no one wants a bruised up cervix. The connection between each ball is smooth and uninterrupted, which will make the Icicles No. 2 easy to use and all good when it comes to craftsmanship.

I enjoyed the Icicles No. 2 the most when The Husband used it with only the smallest bit of Maximus and thrusted gently with the biggest end. It rolled over and put just the right amount of pressure on my G-spot.
