After hearing about the LELO Luna Smart Bead, a small vibrator that trains your vagina to have longer and stronger orgasms, I knew I had to try it. When used for only five minutes a day, the bead helps to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, ultimately making your O’s more frequent and satisfying.
To use, the 3-inch silicone vibe is inserted completely into the vagina, where it progresses through a series of vibrations that become longer and more intense, with periods of non-vibration in between. Using it is easy: while the bead is vibrating, you squeeze your muscles; when it stops, so does your squeezing. Intelligent memory function remembers your progress, and automatically adjusts as your muscles strengthen over time. Basically, it’s a personal trainer for your vagina. So did my vag feel stronger after I used it? Did it give me an orgasm? Can I now break a man’s penis off with just one squeeze of my crotch? Here’s what was going on in my head during my first five minutes using the LUNA Smart Bead. It’s safe to say you can all expect something like this… Keep reading »
I have a really difficult time coming during sex. I can get there, but I need to be in the right frame of mind, my brain can’t be in full-on ADD mode, and I need, like, direct and constant pressure on my clitoris. (Dudes who hope to bang me, you should probably get out a notepad and write that down.) I’m hardly the only woman who has difficulty reaching orgasm during sex or who needs a lot of clitoral stimulation — according to Planned Parenthood, 30 percent of women are in the same boat. I sometimes will break out a vibrator in the bedroom, but depending on the sexual position, it either gets in the way or I find it awkward to hold for an extended period of time. The best position for me is doggystyle (can I just say I hate that term? can we call it something else?) because it lends easy access to my bits, but with one hand busy, I’m left holding my body up with the other arm and really that’s not terribly comfy either. WHAT TO DO? Perhaps Eva is my answer. Keep reading »
I’m grateful — no, thrilled — to live in the golden era of vibrators. We have vibrators for clitoral stimulation, we have vibrators for your G-spot, we have vibrators you can fit inside your purse, we have vibrators you can use in the shower — just about anything you want a vibrator to do (except do your taxes), you can. It’s really one of the better parts of being a woman in 2014. That and indoor plumbing.
But just because a vibrator can do something doesn’t mean it should. That was my takeaway from Lelo’s new toy the Ida, the world’s first rotating and vibrating couple’s massager. Keep reading »
Oh yeah, there’s more where that came from! Last week, I showed you five selections from my bountiful collection of sex toys, including the amazing G-Vibe and the less impressive OhMiBod, but I was only just getting started. In part two of this episode of Funny Girl Sex Guide, I’ll give you the straight dope on five more vibrators I’ve roadtested, including one that I think every woman should invest in — the Hitachi Magic Wand. But which vibrator is my go-to? Watch to find out! (Want more FGSG episodes? Subscribe to our YouTube channel!) Keep reading »
One of the perks of working at The Frisky for the last six-plus years is that a lot of people, specifically a lot of strangers working at sex toy companies (and cannabis lube manufacturers!), have made it their mission to up my masturbation game. I’ve been sent tons of vibrators over the years and have happily given them all a whirl, so to speak. So what better way to show you the wide array of pleasure-giving devices on the market then to open up my very own box of toys. Check out part one of this very intimate episode of Funny Girl Sex Guide, and look for part two next week! BTW, this might be my favorite episode I’ve ever done. I just wanted to say that.
I consider myself a bit of a masturbation expert (i.e. I have spent a lot of my life single and horny) and have a sex toy box full of every possible vibrator you could imagine, yet I am seriously flummoxed by the point of the Glov, a new sex toy innovation. Wait, lemme take a step back. I was initially pumped by what I thought the Glov was for, as it was described by the Daily Dot as a “bionic glove” that “wants to change the way women masturbate.” I assumed that meant that this was a vibrating glove that took masturbating with your hand to whole new heights. I am firm believer that while vibrators and dildos and all that jazz are awesome, sometimes it’s good to go back to basics and use ye olde fingers from time to time, you know, just to keep them in shape. (I feel similarly about porn — great, if you’re into it, but to stave off a dependency, it’s good to take a breather from the hardcore smut and use your imagination during masturbation sometimes.) In my fantasies, the Glov gave your hand a little extra bzzzzzzzzz. Keep reading »
