My Luv Box: Lelo Soraya Review

Lelo_soraya

I have long had a love affair with Lelo sex toys. I own Liv, Lily, Nea, Gigi, and Luna beads. As the years progress, Lelo toys only get better and better. I'm going to tell you all about Soraya, Lelo's streamlined rabbit, and you'll want to buy one immediately. Soraya isn't the only Lelo toy you may find at My Luv Box. Check out the site for more selections.

First, let's get the particulars out of the way. Soraya is an 8 ¾ inch vibrator with an insertable size just thick enough to make me purr. The insertable size is 5 by 1 ½ inches. Not too big, not too small. Just right. Like Goldilocks. Like all Lelo toys, this one is rechargeable which means you don't have to mess with pesky wires getting tangled between your legs and harshing your cool. The charge time is about two hours and the run time is four hours continuous use on full charge. There's plenty of time for you to enjoy Soraya without having to recharge it.

The toy is lightweight, which is very good since I've noticed many high tech rabbits are a bit on the heavy side. Trying to get off when your wrist aches isn't fun. The controls are also easy to use. You don't have to be fluent in Braille to use Soraya's controls. With a press of a button you may change the pulsations and vibrations as well as the speed. There are 8 unique vibration modes, and all of them are serious yum. I prefer a constant hum at a mid-level of intensity, and then I ramp up the intensity the closer I come to orgasm.

I've used many rabbits. Some are too heavy. Some are too cumbersome. Some are just too damned big. Some are frankly ugly. Some have buttons that are hard to use. Even the LED lighting doesn't help. Some are too loud. Some have vibrations that are too intense and the controls are hard to use. The unwieldy ones make me want to put the toy back in its box and never use it again. Soraya has none of those problems. It's a beautifully-desinged sex toy – streamlined and classy looking. It doesn't look like a gigantic purple glitter penis. It's lightweight with pleasant vibrations and pulsations. It has elegant packaging. It even has its own satin pouch. It's rechargeable, which is always a big plus in my book.

Best of all is the way it makes me feel. The vibrations are designed to be positioned in the perfect spots. No twisting is necessary to make sure my sweet spots are hit at the same time. I can move it back and forth for additional pleasure. It also doesn’t feel like I'm impaling myself when I use it. I could go for hours using Soraya, which means that four hour continuous charge is a good thing.

The vibrations are also pleasant. They aren't so strong that I go numb. I can control that. I can make the shaft and clit stimulator run independent of each other, too. Always a plus in a rabbit.

The clit stim is positioned in such a way that it accurately homes in on my clitoris. I don't have to use deft hand maneuvers to get the vibes in the right places.

Soraya is made of skin-safe materials. Silicone and medical –grade plastic, to be specific It also has a metallic coat. It has an ABS core. This toy comes in three colors – deep rose, cerise, and black.

When you buy Soraya, it comes in a fancy black box with the toy nestled snugly in its spot. The charger is in its own section and a small pouch for the toy sits beneath it. You also get a moisturizer sample, an instruction booklet, and your warranty. The packaging is very classy, which is what you expect from Lelo.

As usual, Lelo delivered. It hit it out of the park with Soraya. I can't recommend this vibrator enough. If you like rabbits but find them sometimes to be as cumbersome as I do, you must purchase Soraya. Get one for yourself and someone you love.

Coming In 2015 - New Family Saga/Thriller Novel SECRETS AND LIES

My family saga/thriller novel SECRETS AND LIES will be published by Eldritch Press later this year. Keep an eye here and on my Elizabeth Black fiction web site, Facebook, and Twitter for updates.

Here's the blurb:

"Secrets and Lies" is the tale of Kate Stanwood, an ordinary woman thrown into extraordinary circumstances when her father is found murdered. She lives on Caleb's Woe, a Nantucket-like island and artist's community off the coast of northeastern Massachusetts. As she delves into her father's death and her family's history, she discovers many dark secrets her friends and family want to see remain buried. Her classy, sophisticated uncle and family patriarch is a child predator, her brother cheats on his wife and his taxes, and mysterious circumstances surround her own birth. The appearance of her new friend Dominique Beauvoir on the scene only raises more questions. Why is this woman so eager to get close to Kate's family? This story is about two women who find out who they really are and where they're really from. It's also about how Kate discovers the cozy notion of family she had held for many years has been a sham.

Here's an excerpt:

It looked like someone had taken a wrecking ball to the living room. The dining room chairs had been thrown onto their sides. Shattered crockery and glassware lay in piles at the base of two antique crystal cabinets. A brass floor lamp lay across the rug, its round, fringed shade crushed like a spent balloon.

The family painting, a banquet table-sized oil that normally hid the safe above the fireplace mantle, had been tossed to the floor and shredded. These were not random slashes. The majority was across Matthew's face; the fewest scored that of Clara, Robbie's mother. Deep tears gaped in the canvas where Robbie's sister Kate's face had once been. The slashes that coursed across his face in the portrait disturbed him so much that he ran his palms over his cheeks.

The safe was open and empty. Robbie knew that his father kept some stock certificates, rubber-banded wads of cash, paperwork related to the family business, and old letters in it. He couldn't remember what else was in there, but whatever it was, it was now gone.

When he first saw the blood on the floor next to the breakfront, he wasn't sure what it was. It took a few seconds for the scene to sink in. He took a few steps closer to the tableau to get a full view. The smell hit him square in the face. It was so strong that he could taste it: thick and metallic. His stomach convulsed. He swallowed hard to keep from vomiting.

His father lay face up with his arms and legs splayed at cock-eyed angles, like a marionette that landed in a broken pile when tossed in its box after the show was over.
A gaping hull was all that remained of his fathers' face. Robbie averted his gaze so that he wouldn't have to look at where those accusing eyes had been. He squeezed his own eyes shut so tightly that he saw his blood flowing in dark waves that mimicked the spray of splattered gore on the wall behind his fathers' head. When he composed himself, he opened his eyes. Bugs Bunny heckled him from the television, one finger pointing at him as if all of this was his fault.

Sex Toy Review: Impress G

Impress

I love rabbit-type vibrators, an the Impress G is a fine one. This rabbit is thick at the tip and narrow at the base, making me feel all filled up and then some. It's made of silicone, my favorite material. So soft and supple, yet pliable enough to move with me. The clit stimulator is large and effective. This rabbit has dual motors, one in the clit stimulator and one in the shaft. Which is as it should be. I enjoyed the wide variety of sensations of 12 intense functions of vibration, pulsation and escalation plus progressive speeds. Trust me - you won't be bored with this vibrator.

I also like that it's seamless and aerodynamic. This is a sleek and fancy looking vibrator. It effectively combines form and function. It's not heavy and the controls are easy to find and use. You don't have to play hunt-and-peck. I also get auto lock which makes things even more enjoyable.

Rabbits are a girl's best friend, and this is a fab rabbit. You can't go wrong with it. Pick up your Impress G today. I'm impressed!

Sex Toy Review: Power Play Triple Teaser

Teaser

The Power Play Triple Teaser by California Exotics is a delight to play with. This vibrator homes in on four pleasure areas - your vagina, your taint, your G-spot, and your clitoris. There's nothing as pleasurable as a quadrupal-whammy. I love the way this vibe feels with the combination of sensations in four of my most sensitive areas. With the additional stimulation on my taint (and anus), as well as the G-spot and clit sim, I'm guaranteed intense orgasms.

The silicone vibe is skin-safe and easy to keep clean. It also feels sleek and smooth. The controls are easy to use. I just slap on a little lube, slide the vibe in place, and play to my heart's content. At approximately 7 ounces, this baby isn't too heavy, which is a problem I've seen with other, similar vibrators. This lightweight delight is fun to use. It has three speeds for lots of variety. I like the fastest speed best but all three are a delight to enjoy. There's nothing as enjoyable as getting all your erogenous zones tickled at the same time. Talk about powerful!

I recommend this vibe for women who enjoy multiple sensations, especially G-spot orgasms. You can't go wrong with the Power Play Triple Teaser.

Sex Toy Review: Pocket Exotics Vibrating Double Gold Bullets

Bullets

The Pocket Exotics Vibrating Double Gold Bullets was a perfect choice for the holiday season with the festive gold color. The dual bullets provide lots of combinations for extremely enjoyable sex play. I could share one with my husband so he can use it at the same time I do. Or I could insert one bullet and use the other on my clit. Or use one bullet on my clit and the other on my nipples. The possibilities are endless! The multiple speeds give lots of variety, too. I prefer to start off fast and end with a screaming orgasm. The speeds aren't so intense I go numb, either. The toy is quiet and doesn't disturb anyone in adjoining rooms. The batteries also last a very long time, so I may use this toy at my leisure.

This is a very versatile, compact and powerful pocket vibe, just as it says on the box. If you enjoy external stimulation you'd enjoy this toy very much. Also, your partner may use one bullet on you while you use the other on yourself. So many possibilities! Perfect for solo or partnered play, you can't go wrong with these Vibrating Double Gold Bullets.

Sex Toy Review: Scandal Corset Cuffs

Cuffs

I love the Edwardian look, so these Scandal Corset Cuffs are delightful for me to use. The black-on-red satin brocade in edged in black with black ribbon lace closures looks very elegant. These cuffs are lightweight so I may move my arms about easily, although they won't go very far when I'm cuffed to a chair or bed rail.

Velcro fasteners make the cuffs easy to put on and - importantly - easy to take off. The velcro also allows the cuffs to adjust to size so they are neither too loose nor too tight. The black chain holding them together is strong enough to take a hefty yank or two. It's also a good length. Neither too short nor too long. It is also detachable.

These cuffs may be used on both wrists and ankles. They comfortably fit as well. They are also nickel-free.

These cuffs are ideal for light bondage play. If you're just getting into bondage, give these cuffs a try and enjoy your kink. Share with a partner. Or two. Or three. You can even wear them alone since they are easy to attach and remove. This is a fine and elegant pair of cuffs. Get a matching corset to set the look.

Sex Toy Review: Passion Pals Fluttering Butterfly


Butterfly

The Passion Pals Fluttering Butterfly is a classic rabbit vibe well suited to everyone no matter her experience with sex toys. This purple vibe has powerful vibrations with the most intense swirling beads. I love the labial massage I get from the beads as well as the deep massage from the shaft. The butterfly side mount covers my entire labial and clitoral area so I get pleasant vibrations all over. If you want intense orgasms - even multiples - this is the sex toy for you.

It's easy to hold and not too heavy. The controls also light up so they're easy to see in the dark. Hold down the button for three seconds to turn it off. There's also wide variety in the different settings so you may choose slow or fast vibrations. You also get a wide variety of pulsations bound to please every woman out there, no matter what sexy mood she's in. The five rows of beads provide lots of massage and stimulation. I of course like to have all the gears going at once to get the best benefit from this sex toy. Requires 3 AAA batteries.

I'm very satisfied with this vibrator. I love rabbits to begin with, and this one is enjoyable, functional, and easy on the eyes.

Sex Toy Review - Aluminum Heat Wave Slim Teaser

Heat_wave

The Alumimum Heat Wave Slim Teaser is a lightweight, effective slender bullet-type vibrator. It has two very intense speeds and it even warms up as I use it. Very nice. I prefer the slower speed at first and then the faster and more intense speed as I approach orgasm. This vibe is also fairly quiet so I won't disturb anyone when I use it - unless I choose to.

This sex toy is made of lightweight aluminum, and the one I have is colored silver. It's perfect for taking with me when I travel, and I'm going on an extended trip in October so I know I'll need to take a vibe with me. This one could be it. It's a classy-looking vibe as well. Not cumbersome or heavy to hold.

In addition to being a great clit and interior vibe, the Heat Wave is a great muscle relaxant. I have TMJ (pain in the jaw from grinding teeth), and the Heat Wave homed right in on the painful areas and relaxed them. My TMJ hasn't acted up in over a decade, but for some reason it reared its ugly head last week. Within half an hour after using it my face no longer hurt. I used it on the right side of my jaw and the warmth from the Heat Wave was an added bonus. If you have muscle or joint pain, the Heat Wave might be able to help ease the pain, depending on exactly what it is.

The Aluminum Heat Wave Slim Teaser takes two AA batteries and it runs for a good, long time. You will love this bullet vibrator.

Sex Toy Review: Coco-Licious Hide & Play Lipstick Vibrator

Have you ever seen the movie "Mimic"? It's about gigantic, man-sized cockroaches living in New York sewers that pass themselves off as humans wearing trench coats. The movie is great fun, but the short story by Donald A. Wollheim is even better. The gist of it is that many creatures mimic other animals, plants, and objects to hide from prey - or to hide themselves when they are acting as predators. Walking sticks, leaf bugs, Viceroy butterflies, and angler fish are examples of these kinds of wildlife.

I was always fascinated by creatures that mimic other creatures. So imagine my delight when I was given the Coco-Licious Hide & Play Lipstick Vibrator to review. I've always wanted one of these. It looks like a little lipstick you carry in your purse, but it's not a lipstick. It's a vibrator. So if you drop your purse and everything in it comes tumbling out, you won't be caught with a huge dong. This lipstick vibe slips right under the radar, which is why it is perfect for travel.

There is no real lipstick involved here. You can't get any lip color from it. It only looks like a classic red rolled up lipstick in a black lacquer case. Very realistic.

I like it for other reasons, too. Don't be fooled by its size. It's a powerful little thing with 8 vibrations, pulsations, and escalations. I tried them all and I like to vary my sensations. Sometimes I like a steady stream and other times I like a tapping pulse, especially while I'm coming. The push-button design works beautifully. Just press it and it works. Hold the button down to turn it off. Easy peasy.

It's phthalate-free and may be used in or out of water. I used it as a clit stimulator. It focused its attention directly on me or around me, depending on how I held it. This vibe is very good at pinpoint precision. It has no scent of any kind. Safe to use, it's a fabulous little vibe to carry on your person for mid-day romps or for travel.

Now that I've enjoyed a vibe that mimics a lipstick, I think I'll watch that movie again. I especially like "Mimic" because Guillermo del Toro co-wrote and directed it. He's one of my favorite movie directors. Go get your lipstick vibe today!
