And now on to this week's review picks!
meitman is our host for this week!
Velocifero gives us a great review on FiftyShades of Grey where she writes, “I worry about vanilla men and women who read this novel and then try to dive head-first into BDSM with this as their guide. There is a disturbing lack of emphasis on building trust and gaining sober consent. It paints all dominants as being motivated by a troubled past. It makes them seem as if their need for control in the bedroom must necessarily be driven by emotional damage, and that it's okay to take advantage of the weak-willed.”
Kindred gives us another excellent review with a great use of pictures and some very clever alternate uses for the RealTouch Performance Sleeve. He says, “I think the sleeve worked well for its intended use. It definitely insulates the device and provides a good grip. The main issue I have is that you have to put it on and take it off every time you use the device, which can be a hassle given that you have to shimmy it on. A better design would have been a Velcro fastened wrap. This would make it quicker and easier to put on each time and take off each time.”
PassionCpl provides a great review of a not so great product, the Fishnet side panel brief. They make great use of pictures to show why this didn’t work out and their concerns with the product.
Jessica (Buttercup Green) gives us an excellent review with tons of info. Her first experience with a wooden toy, the Flingergonomic two finger rocks her world. She says, “Fling is a wonderful wooden dildo! This was my very first, and I have bought more after experiencing the rigid pleasures that Fling delivers time and time again. This squirt machine is something that I will never be without.”
DynamicKitty provides a great review of the Ella. Although it didn’t work out as well as she was hoping she’s still able to make it work and as usual, makes great use of pictures to show off the product and packaging.
