A simple but effective idea

Everyone should have a feather toy in their box of goodies. It's a simple idea, but sometimes simple is the best. The Ostrich feather is delghtful for sensory play. It's soothing and erotic and doesn't tickle in a bad way. It's great fun before the main event.

extremely useful review
Feathers are a great way to add different sensations to sex play. I resisted buying feathers for a long time. I am extemely ticklish. I mean seriously ticklish. Light touches with hands and fingers tend to annoy me. Too light a caress will have me slapping hands a way. Feathers sounded like pure torture. Since I'm not into torture, I stayed far, far away. I have no idea why but about two years ago, I inexplicably added one to my order. I was pleasantly surprised with it. It doesn't tickle at all. In fact, it produces a soft and sensuous sensation. It easily brings out goosebumps, but only in a very good way. It almost feels like fur to me. I can't always take simple light touches with fingers, but this is always welcome. I haven't yelled Uncle once.

This ostrich feather from Sportsheets is a wonderful feather. It is approximately 30 inches long with the handle and the feather each measuring about 15 inches. Eden sells them in a variety of colors-red, purple, burgendy, blue, teal, and black. I own the purple, and it is bright medium shade of purple. The feather actually is comprised of two feathers glued together. This gives it extra thickness and aids in the stability. The black plastic handles are easy to hold. The plastic is thicker at the bottom and at the top where the feathers are attached. The feathers are anchored firmly in place. I've never had a problem with the feathers pulling out. We've had it for 2 years and it is still very nice. The very tip of the feathers are beginning to droop a bit, but are still very functional.

I have another type of feather toy that is more like a duster. (I liked the first one so well, I had to expand my collection.) While both are nice, I prefer the feel of the ostrich feather. I can't describe why except to say the ostrich feather feels more sensuous and erotic to me. Since the handle is long, it works best from a bit of a distance. It's not real conducive to using while both partners are rolling around in bed. It's better if the giver is standing or at least kneeling over the receiver. Shorter feather toys like the feather duster type mentioned above are better for close, personal play. They could even be used during intercourse. The ostrich feather doesn't work well for that.

Feathers can be used in a variety of ways. They can caress the entire body. I particularly like it on the nape of my neck and feet. But it's welcome anywhere. We usually get out several different kinds of sensation toys at the same time. Then we can alternate the type of touches. It's also great when we use blindfolds and/or restraints. That adds an element of anticipation and surprise that is fun.

We store ours in a corner of the room tucked behind some furniture. A vase would be fabulous for storing this. You could add greenery and flowers and no one would guess you have a sex toy in there. We have been careful not to get it wet. We use it before getting out any lubes or lotions. The feather would be difficult to clean if wet.

We are pleased with the feather. It's simple and may seem boring. But I can attest it works wonderfully and without unnecessary torture.
Follow-up commentary
Everyone needs a feather in their toybox. We still love this simple ostrich feather for sensation play. It has held up very well and is always ready to play.
