dildo glass icicles never again pink reviews

Icicles Rose (no. 12) glass dildo review

rosey66I’m going to be totally honest and say that the Icicles rose doesn’t really appeal to me aesthetically, it actually kind of reminds me of those cheap mock-Murano sculptures you find in like, the Home section of Sainsburys. But when I’m looking at something to stick in my vagina I’m not that concerned about whether I’d want to leave it out my bookshelf or not – although, coincidentally, I have done that. And everyone knew what it was, probably because they know me well enough to twig that I’d never buy something that looked like this unless it served a higher purpose.

The Rose is nearly eight inches long and fairly slim but it has a bunch of differing measurements thanks to all those bulbs – the girthiest part, the bud, measures 5″ around, the middle bulb 4″ around, and the bottom bulb 5″ again. The skinny bit, the stem I guess, thins out to 1″ directly under the bud and the piece above the fattest bottom bulb is 2″. It’s completely straight, has a flared base, no g-spot or p-spot bend, and any texture is restricted to the bud, which has sculpted petal detailing that’s good for clit stimulation. Allegedly.

dildo pink reviews silicone tantus

Tantus Cush 02 review


I probably should’ve put a jumper on that wasn’t covered in paint before I took this. Sorry to ruin your big moment, cush.

The Cush is all kinds of adorable for something that’s seven inches long and so girthy that I can only just fit my whole hand around the widest part. I received mine in the candy colour, which looks like someone poured a carton of semi-melted strawberry sorbet into a dildo mould and let it set, and as it’s from Tantus’ dual density O2 line it’s got this plush outerlayer that’s especially squishable (is that a word? I’m making it a word) at the tip – I can pinch and prod at this thing all day! It’s like one of those desktop stress relievers, except it’s phallic and you put it in your various orifices. For stress relief. And orgasms.

The Cush is a chubby little cutie – it measures just shy of 6 inches around over the bulgy tip, the prominent ridge midway down the shaft and at the base, where it feels firmest and the outerlayer is thinnest. It’s safe for butt stuff and even fits into my RodeoHs, but it causes major sagging and I have to wander around with this piece of semi-translucent silicone dangling between my thighs like a cowboy. The soft matte silicone attracts every bit of dust within a two foot radius, although not as badly as my other, shinier, grippier Tantus toys do (Goddess & Splash), but I would not advise an impromptu dildo-blowie unless you’ve just given it a good rinse. Even I don’t know why I keep doing that, you’d think I’d know better by now but I guess all my primary school teachers were right and I’m doomed to go through life getting lint in my mouth one way or another.

etc guide

Totally not a Valentine’s day gift guide

I don’t really go in for Valentine’s day. One year someone went and handpicked me a bunch of flowers (they were probably from someone’s front garden, honestly) but forgot about my hayfever and I spent the rest of the day trying to look pretty while sneezing, last year I got blackout drunk with a girl I was seeing and we had so much sex that I went into this nightmarish Naked Lunch-esque delirium brought on by too many orgasms and 50p shots that tasted almost exactly like lighter fluid. In the morning there was a neatly beheaded dildo chilling out in the bathroom sink and she told me I sounded like ‘one of those real exorcism videos’.

Also, it’s a horrible capitalist heteropatriarchial ‘holiday’ that makes otherwise nice people either insufferably smug about how great their v-day is going (‘Oh, he bought me thiiiiis, and thiiiiis, oh I’m so lucky, did you not get-? oh. OH and thiiiiiis’) or about how much they hate v-day (‘I’m on a date with netflix. you know saint valentine was EXECUTED right? it’s a FESTIVAL OF DEATH, basically’). Everyone does some variation of this. Literally everyone. Nobody cares.

This isn’t really a gift guide, it’s more of a ‘what I’d want to put in a window display’ or ‘here are a bunch of sex toys that still fit in with your cutesy valentine’s theme but aren’t flappy lil bunny kiss vibes’. Also, there’s a ton of sales going on right now – it’d be silly not to, right? Right…



Pink things! Pink is like, the official colour of the honeymoon period. It’s the colour of rose quartz, and fluffy summer sunrise clouds, and candyfloss, and turkish delight. Newborn baby mice. The inside of your mouth. And there are so many exciting hues to choose from – except actually not really at all, as you can see here, because for some reason the sex toy industry seems to only want to make toys in baby-blanket pink and that heinous middle of the road fuchsia. I want to see some dusty rosy pinks! Strawberry ice cream pink, complete with sprinkle effect! Coral pink! Fuchsia isn’t romantic!

L-R – Sqweel Go, looking like an aquatic behemoth and available at Lovehoney for £39.99/Tantus Cush, in pink, blue, or icy lilac, $76.99/Fun Factory Amorino – I really don’t care how big of a gimmick this thing is with its weird little cupid’s bow, I want it – available at Lovehoney for £54.99/Vixskin Mustang in neon pink, tie-bright or a variety of flesh tones, $99 at Shevibe or £79.99 at Lovehoney/Crystal Heart wavy glass dildo, £28.99 at Lovehoney. Header is the Lovehoney flash 6 function rechargeable bullet, £24.99



Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrred. If it’s red, all you have to do is stick a heart-shaped sticker on the packaging and it’s good for V-day. Red is a fiery, sexy colour, it’s the colour of red rose petals and red wine and an especially well spanked bum and strawberries (are aphrodisiacs a real thing?) and if you’re my old print tutor, it’s the colour that clouded her vision when she came home one fateful February 14th and found her husband canoodling on her antique chaise lounge with one of her students. True story! She liked to talk about that a lot.

L-R – BSisnice Olga in the special heart edition, 130€/Icicles no. 32, £36.99 at Lovehoney/Lelo Mona 2, purple or red, £88.99 at Lovehoney/Bondage Boutique heart shaped crop, red or black, £14.99 at Lovehoney/Julian Snelling rosebud plug (small), 59€. Header is the Rocks Off RO-80mm bullet in red, £9.99



Sex toys and spanking paddles with hearts-n-flowers doodads are some of my favourite things. I love anything kitschy and weird and nauseatingly cute and in the case of a paddle, if it promises to leave a heart shaped bruise I will be ON THAT. Also, a rose buttplug is the perfect thing to express my love for both buttplay and gardening at the same time.

Clockwise from top left – DOMINIX leather slapper paddle, £18.99 at Lovehoney/OhMiBod Flex silicone kegel excercisers – £32.99 at Lovehoney, $45 at Good Vibrations/Sh Wirly Girly 2 silicone dildo, £31/Julian Snelling large bronze rose plug, 99€/Crystal Delights kitty medallion glass plug, $94.95/Heart beat wooden paddle by EgoDriven @ Etsy, $15.99+. Header is either a rogue sea cucumber or the Shag Factory flower power bullet, £7.99

I hope you all have lovely V-days with plentiful orgasms, minimal crying and no allergic reactions!

Dildo doodles v.1


I’m not gonna lie, this is totally a filler post because I was going to put a review of this super cute paddle with a heart cutout up this weekend and I don’t have any pictures that do it justice. Do you know how frustrating it is when you’re trying to get a picture of a specific bruise and you can’t get a good one and you wake up the next morning and it’s yellow and misshapen? It looks more like a lettuce than a heart at this point. I have a vegetable garden on my butt.

In addition to having an allotment on my ass, I also have a couple of sketchbooks full of sex/sex toy related doodles, so I’m going to continue putting up scraps from those up here on a semi-regular basis. Here are some sfw ones – none of these are ‘finished’ and I don’t intend on finishing any of them, really, I’ve got my header to do, which has taken me three months and still isn’t done, and I need to get a new tablet, and I have all these ideas for new projects – sex toy stickers! sex toy stamps! – but I’m going to leave off here because this post reaaaally doesn’t need any more waffle, I’m just nervous.

L-R: Iroha Sakura (I want to do watercolours of this, it’s so cute I can’t stand it, or if I was really into 3D work I’d make little mini ones out of colour-washed cotton wool) and the handle of an Ina, Tantus Splash ft. Irohas and some colour swatches – turns out I don’t have any pens that’d be suitable for colouring the Splash with, booooo, fabric collaged Plunge paddle, Ina again, and the We-Vibe 3, and some continuous Lelo line drawings.

If you’re unfamiliar with continuous line drawings, they’re my favourite thing to do ever. You get your object or your person or whatever you’re drawing and you stick your pen on the page and draw them like you would usually, but you don’t look at your paper and you don’t take your pen off the paper either, just keep drawing in a – tada! – continuous line. They’re really fun, there’s no right or wrong way for them to look, they’re good for warming up before a life drawing or a big piece and I just like messing up pretty shit. Lelo toys are as cla$$y as they come, so it seemed like a logical decision. They can be as quick as you like or you can take hours on them, all the ones pictured took about 15-30 seconds each and I went back in on a few of them with a thicker fineliner or a crayon – if someone can identify the two completely mangled ones with the pink asterisks next to them, I’ll do you a lil wax crayon doodle of your favourite toy.


Oh, and I found this in my drafts folder a couple of days ago. I was going to make a gif for my Sakura review but I got to the fifth frame, realised I hated it and now I’m re-drawing it by hand. Does anyone else think the Iroha toys look like they’d squeal or stars should come out them when you squish them?
