Babeland: Jimmy Jane Afterglow Candle
I love the Jimmy Jane Afterglow Candle. This is the second one I've used. My favorite scent so far is pink lotus, but this one, which is cucumber water, is also very nice. Other scents include dark vanilla, bourbon, fig leaf, black currant, and milk chocolate. The subtle scents are very feminine and pleasant, and they don't smell like you're in a head shop. While I like the head shop smell, I'm not always in the mood for it.
The massage oil melts quickly and when I use the brush to spread it, it feels soft and warm, not sticky, greasy, or gooey. My husband and I love foot massages, and the Jimmy Jane Afterglow Candle is perfect for them. The oil spreads very well and stays warm for a good long time. I like using massage candles over regular massage oil because when heated it feels good on sore muscles, or on my fallen arches. There's nothing as wonderful as a sexy foot rub and arch massage with the Jimmy Jane Afterglow Candle.
The price is very reasonable and the candle lasts a much longer time than other massage candles I've used. The packaging is also very sleek. The frosted square glass candle holder is very pretty and looks stunning in my bathroom. I love the match box, too. There's something sexy about match boxes that you don't get from a regular book of matches. The brush is very soft and holds the melted oil very well.
If you're looking for a sweet and delicate massage candle, look no further than Jimmy Jane Afterglow Candle. Jimmy Jane is known for their luxurious sex toys, so add a Jimmy Jane Afterglow Candle to your sex toys collection. Just in time for Christmas, too! The Jimmy Jane Afterglow Candle makes a great stocking stuffer.

Babeland: Sensuous Soak Kit
I love to take a long soak in the bath, especially when I'm having my period because the hot water makes me feel better. So I was eager to try Babeland's Sensuous Soak Kit.
It has everything! A delightful sponge with its own waterproof bullet vibrator that may be removed so that I may use it on its own, which I did. It felt great on my nipples. The Babeland Bubble Bath, scented Afternoon Delight, foamed up very well when the hot water hit it. The scent was a delicious rustic spice that I liked much better than the usual floral or fruity scents I get from bubble bath. The bubble bath also made the water feel softer.
I loved the cucumber water scented Afterglow massage candle by JimmyJane. I already have a JimmyJane Afterglow massage candle, scented pink lotus, and I must admit that JimmyJane makes my favorite massage candles. It burns slowly, and the massage oil worked well in the bath. I can use the massage oil in the bath or directly on my skin. The cucumber water scent went very well with Afternoon Delight.
This Sensuous Soak Kit comes with a waterproof book of erotica called Aqua Erotica, with stories by some well known erotica writers, including Cecilia Tan, Thomas Roche, and Poppy Z. Brite. I love to read while soaking in the bath, and since this book is waterproof, I didn't have to worry about getting it wet. What a fantastic idea for a book! Make it waterproof so that you may enjoy it in a bath filled with fragrant bubbles.
The best part is that while you may buy each of these products in the Sensuous Soak Kit separately, when you buy them together in this kit, you save 15%! All of the products in the Sensuous Soak Kit are high quality and perfect for soaking away your hectic day, or enjoying a sensuous soak with someone you love.
Enjoy your sex play and buy your Sex Toys at Babeland.

Sex Toy Review: Blazin' Bitch Black Cherry Massage Candle With Pheromones
There is so much to like about the Blazin' Bitch Black Cherry Massage Candle. First, the name is catchy. What's not to love about a massage candle called "Blazin' Bitch"? Second, this particular scent (black cherry) smells like a head shop. I haven't been to a head shop since the 1970s, and the smells I remember most often were patchouli and black cherry. Finally, the massage wax is smooth and not the least bit greasy. A little also goes a long way.
We're big on foot rubs around here, so I burned the candle while we were watching TV. After dinner we're practically ready for bed and the sun has barely set. That's a great time for foot massages. The black cherry head shop smell permeated our living room. All I needed was a Mexican blanket (which I have), glow-in-the-dark velvet wall hangings (which I didn't have), and a bong hit (which I would have liked but, sadly, didn't have). Rather than watch "Law & Order", I should have put on Russ Meyer's "Supervixens" with that bow-chicka-bow-bow soundtrack that is so reminiscent of the 1970s. The Blazin' Bitch Black Cherry Massage Candle sure set the right kind of mood.
Maybe it was the pheromones in the Blazin' Bitch Black Cherry Massage Candle that set that sexy and laid back mood so well. Even when I didn't burn the candle, taking the lid off of it was enough to send that luscious smell around us. It brought back memories of punk sticks, Peter Max paintings, tie-dyed t-shirts, Gonesh incense burners, and Indian wrap skirts with gold metallic thread sewn into the fabric.
The melted oil felt wonderful when my husband rubbed it into my feet. It was very light and not the least bit greasy or oily. The warmth of the oil loosened up my tight muscles as he massaged me with it. Best of all was that delightful smell. This is a soy candle, too, which blended well with that head shop feel. I've used other massage candles before, and this one so far is the lightest and least greasy. You also get a lot for your money. The container is a deep black cherry colour with white lettering. I could let it sit by itself on a table and take the lid off so that the sexy scent flows around the living room. So when I want to take a trip back in time, I burn my Blazin' Bitch Black Cherry Massage Candle. Groovy!

Babeland - Afterglow Candle
I love massage oils, and I've heard of massage candles, but I have never used one before. So when I had a chance to review Babeland's Afterglow Candle, I couldn't resist. It goes well with the rest of my candle collection. I have candles of voudou goddesses I call my Santeria candles, and I light them all the time. They came in very handy when the power went out during a storm recently.
The Afterglow Candle is a nice votive-sized candle, and it comes with its own very classy box of black matches with white tips, and a fab brush for spreading the oil on yourself or your partner. The candle lit without a problem, and it burned very evenly, which is important when you are talking about candles.
You get four scents: Fig Leaf, Bourbon, Pink Lotus, and Black Currant. I received Pink Lotus, and I love it! It's so delicate and subtle. Black Currant was out of stock, and that one would have been my second choice. I love Asian scents. Pink Lotus reminds me of the Japanese stick incense that I burn on occasion. My two favorites are White Cloud and Kyoto Cherry Blossom. They are as delicate and subtle as Pink Lotus.
I was happy to see that I didn't have to use a lot of the massage oil to do the job properly. My husband and I like to watch movies and TV while giving each other hand and foot massages. After typing and writing articles all day, my shoulders hurt. I also love foot rubs. My husband has arthritis in his hands, which is why I wanted this Afterglow Candle in the first place. The oil was not greasy, and it absorbed into the skin very easily. We didn't feel like we needed a shower after using it. And it glided on oh so well! I massaged away the ache in his hands, and he rubbed my arches until I was putty in his hands. God, I love a good foot rub!
The warm oil in this candle lasts for a very long time, and it smells divine. I love the delicate scent of the Pink Lotus. Plus the glass candle holder works for votive lights once the massage candle is used up. I will definitely get more of these massage candles once the oil runs out. Plus they make great gifts for the holidays.

VibeReview: White Nights Pleasure Kit
I had been under a lot of stress lately, so I needed to relax a bit. What better way to relax than to use the White Nights Pleasure Kit. It comes with a bullet vibe, a Pocket Rocket, and a traditional slim vibrator. In addition, it includes tuberose massage oil. This is a very pleasant massage oil, since the scent is a light floral rose. Tuberose is considered an aphrodisiac that can ease impotence and frigidity. It also is great for relaxation, which was perfect for me since I've been so stressed out lately. The scent definitely helped me to relax. If I wanted to, I could use this massage oil as perfume. That's how pleasant it was. The sex toys were all coloured white, which reminded me of a fresh start and purity. I was getting a fresh start with these delightful sex toys.
I used the slim vibrator first. Not only did it treat my pussy well, it felt wonderful on my nipples and face. I just sat back, slathered a little tuberose massage oil on my breasts and hands, and let the vibrator do its work. It felt very relaxing. As I ran the vibrator over my erogenous zones, I felt my body relax and my mind became clear and at ease. Just what I wanted.
I like bullet vibrators, and this one was very nice. I could easily take it with me to Arisia in January, since I'll stay in the hotel with my husband, and we can use this bullet to have a little sexy fun after a day of SF/F panels. Bullets are fun to use with a condom and then insert them. I've done that in the past, but I wasn't in the mood to do it now. I let that bullet play with my nipples, my eyes, my ears, and my clit and pussy lips. I kept the fairly high, which is how I like it. Using the bullet so soon after using the vibrator made me feel very aroused, but it also made me feel relaxed and lazy. I wanted a slow, comfortable orgasm, and I was about to have a good one.
Lastly, I used my favorite sex toy - the Pocket Rocket. It's only one speed, but it really packs a wallop. It comes with a clear plastic sleeve with lots of nubs for my erotic pleasure. I slid this Pocket Rocket against my clit and lips, and I got hot very fast. I was able to scratch an itch that I had for quite a while. I just sat back on the couch and relaxed while I played with this Pocket Rocket. I'm working on some sex scenes for a serial I am writing, so using this Pocket Rocket helped me to get in the mood for those scenes. It's very hard to write sex scenes when you don't feel sexy. Now I'm confident that I can finish those scenes with this Pocket Rocket helping me along the way.
The White Nights Pleasure Kit is perfect for traveling. The box is small, and I can take all three sex toys and the tuberose massage oil along if I wish. The sex toys themselves are very small, so they can even fit in my back pack. I prefer the Pocket Rocket to the other two toys, but all three are very nice. They do their jobs in making me relax and enjoy sex play, which is all that matters. I'm going to use the Pocket Rocket this weekend while I work on my erotic serial. It is my new best friend, and it helps me get in the mood for writing. What a great way to wind down a stressful week!

Babeland - Massage Bars
My husband and I have a major weakness: we love massages. I love to have my back and feet massaged. My husband loves a good foot and leg massage. So, when I saw Babeland's Massage Bars in all their delicious scents, I had to try them.
My favorite is Blackberry Musk, because I love blackberries. I used to buy this very thick Cassis-scented bath bubble mix that I can't find anymore, and it smelled exactly like the Blackberry Musk massage bar. These massage bars are about the size of a silver dollar, and they look like candy. It's tempting to eat them, considering how good they smell.
Not only are they great to use for massage, they make great moisturizers. I took a shower, and tried the Blackberry Musk massage bar on my legs, stomach, breasts, and arms. Talk about thick and luscious! I didn't need a body lotion after using it. It also lasts a long time. A little massage bar goes a long way. I put it back in its paper wrapper and sat it in the cardboard case it came in.
The other scents are just as wonderful. Chocolate Raspberry (another fruity favorite of mine), Lavender Vanilla, and Passion Fruit. It's been so hot lately that I think I'll use Passion Fruit the next time. That's such a summery fragrance. I love how the massage bars feel on my skin. They make my skin very soft and supple, something that is important to me since I love body lotions. The good thing is that these massage bars are not greasy at all. I don't like feeling as if I'm being prepped to go into an oven with garlic and herbs, if you know what I mean.
I plan to make good use of my Babeland massage bars. I want them to last a long time, and I know they will. I'll use the Chocolate Raspberry next after I use up the Blackberry Musk bar. These are very nice massage bars. They're great for traveling, too. I won't have to carry a bottle of massage oil in my carryon luggage, which the security team would probably confiscate anyway since the bottle would hold over 3 ounces. One massage bar will carry me over very well the next time I go to a science fiction convention. I'll save the massage bars for such a trip and share them with my kinky and sexy friends.

Babeland - Head Tingler
The Count and I love the Head Tingler. The only other Tingler I've ever heard of is the monster in the old Vincent Price movie, and this Tingler is much more fun. It comes with its own velvet bag for transport so I can pack it when we travel. It took no time at all to set the tines in their proper positions so that we could use it. I made the circumference narrow so that it would have to work harder to massage and scratch my scalp. I wasn't disappointed.
I love a good head scratching. I used to use a wooden backscratcher for that, but the Head Tingler does a much better job. The tines scratch and massage in the right places - along the base of my skull, the top of my head where my fontenal would be, and along my hairline. This little critter feel great, too!
I don't buy that the copper in the Head Tingler attracts energy, but I don't care because it sure does feel good! Using the Head Tingler makes my scalp tingle. It feels so good it makes shivers move up and down my spine. The more I use it, the better it makes me feel. It hits all the right spots. The Head Tingler found every erogenous zone on my head and it scratched and massaged every single one of them. If that is how the Head Tingler attracts energy, who am I to complain?
My husband, The Count, loves the Head Tingler. He's bald so his scalp is extra sensitive. The Head Tingler isn't sharp so it doesn't cut into sensitive skin, and you can use it very rough - the way we do - and it doesn't break under pressure. The Head Tingler can take heavy use.
I even tried to use it on one of the cats, Lucky, but he didn't like it. On the other hand, our cat Beowulf loved it! He stuck his butt up in the air, and he wanted that deep tissue massage on his back with the Head Tingler! Beowulf always was a hedonist.
We use the Head Tingler every day because it feels so incredibly good. If you like back scratches and head scratches, I can't recommend the Head Tingler enough. It digs right in there and soothes that itch. Plus it massages your scalp and brings blood to the surface. I have hair down to my hips, and the Head Tingler does not tie it into knots, which is important if you have long hair. The last thing you need are knots.
The Head Tingler gets lots of use in this household. I'm glad I have one.

VibeReview - The Hitachi Magic Wand
Hitachi Magic Wand
I had heard of the Hitachi Magic Wand for several years, and I was just tickled to finally own one. The Hitachi Magic Wand had a reputation for being one of the best massage tools out there, and I was eager to find out if the rumors I had heard were true. VibeReview carries the Hitachi Magic Wand.
I was not disappointed in the slightest.
I'm glad that the Hitachi Magic Wand plugs in, since I knew I would wear out batteries quickly, considering that I had planned on using it very often. The Hitachi Magic Wand has two speeds – fast and slow. Believe me, you don't need any more than that. It's a noisy thing, but the noise doesn't bother me. It's big and bulky and noisy – not a discreet vibrator. However, it can do much more than act as a sex toy, although it plays sex toy very well.
My husband has arthritis in his right hand, near his thumb. When we moved a year ago, the physical effort from the move hurt his hand, and it's been giving him problems ever since. Plus he plays lots of video games that sometimes hurt his hand, since he has to use his thumb to move around his Dark Age Of Camelot characters. When he held the ball of the Hitachi Magic Wand in the palm of his hand, the vibrations from the Wand (on slow) unknotted the muscle around his thumb, and it stopped hurting so much! I have flat feet, and the Wand on my arches made my feet feel much better. The powerful vibrations relaxed the muscles in my feet and in his hand.
The Hitachi Magic Wand felt wonderful on my back, especially around my tailbone and along my shoulder blades. I was like putty in my husband's hands when he ran that Wand over my back. It felt good on our faces, too. The Wand felt especially good on my jaw at the spot where my lower and upper jaws met. Sometimes I clench my teeth, and I can get a bit tight in that area. The Hitachi Magic Wand vibrated away any tension in my face. My husband used it along the sides of his nose – where his sinuses are located – and the Wand even cleared up his head! He had to blow his nose after using the Wand on his sinuses. So, when we get head colds, we will make a special point of using the Hitachi Magic Wand on our sinuses to clear up any congestion.
We have several cats, and the most curious one – Lucky – kept hovering around the bed when we were playing with the Hitachi Magic Wand. His "Fun Detector" must have gone off, so he had to know what this contraption was. I leaned over, and ran the Wand against his back. He liked it! I put the Wand on the slow speed, and ran it slowly over his back and by his tail. He didn't run away the way I thought he would. The Hitachi Magic Wand is so good that even your pets would like it. Our cats are very finicky, so the fact that Lucky liked feeling the Wand on his back says a lot of good about the Hitachi Magic Wand.
And now, the real fun part – using the Hitachi Magic Wand as a sex toy. We both let the Wand do it's magic on our genitals. After spending close to an hour giving each other massages with the Hitachi Magic Wand, my husband placed it on my clit. Within seconds – and I'm not exaggerating – I had an orgasm so intense that I doubled up backwards against the couch. I came in waves like I hadn't come in years. And then, once that orgasm died down, I had another one! I arched my back so much that I stood up in front of the couch! My husband used it on his balls, and it felt so good he groaned. Watch using the Hitachi Magic Wand on your anus. You'll relax so much that you'll risk leaving a mess on your couch!
The day after I received my Hitachi Magic Wand in the mail, I got my period, and it was a heavy one. The cramps hurt so badly they woke me up in the middle of the night. I figured it was time to let the Hitachi Magic Wand work its wonders on me. I turned the vibration on high, and rubbed it on my belly right over my uterus. That felt incredibly good, and I felt the cramps subsiding quite a bit. Then, I send the Wand a little lower and masturbated with it. The best thing a woman can do if she has really bad cramps is to have an orgasm. The orgasm helps relax that whole area, and the cramps either go away for awhile or they aren't as strong. It took me about five minutes, but I had another intense orgasm with the Wand. Orgasms with the Hitachi Magic Wand are much more intense than they are with finger play or even some other vibrators. Once I had my orgasms (I had several with the Wand) and I used the Wand on my belly, I was relaxed enough to finally get a good night's sleep.
I would recommend the Hitachi Magic Wand to anyone, male or female, who likes a good massage and wants a little sex play on the side. The Wand literally is magic on the human body. It's a great tool to own yourself or to give away as a gift. I can't praise the Hitachi Magic Wand enough. It's a wonderful little thing that packs quite a wallop.
