Doc Johnson Mood Naughty Plugs

Review: Doc Johnson Mood Naughty 1 Set

The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty 1 set includes three plugs – a small, medium, and large butt plug. The width of the plugs are spaced out appropriately for anal training or stretching, with 0.25” increments in diameter between each plug. The packaging is relatively plain plastic packaging, so I would recommend storing the plugs elsewhere once you’ve opened the package.

Design and Material

Doc Johnson Mood Naughty Plugs

The plugs in the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty 1 butt plug set are constructed from a firm silicone. The firmness of the silicone ensures that these plugs are easy to insert.

I purchased the set in black, but it is also available in pink and in a translucent color with rainbow specks throughout.

Measurements

Measurements matter a lot to me when I am shopping for butt plugs, so I include them in depth here for those who also care.

The small plug is 3” long, with a diameter of 0.75” (girth of 2.75”), and neck girth of 1.25”. The medium plug is 5” long, with a diameter of 1” (girth of 3.25”), and neck girth of 1.4”. The large plug is 5” long, with a diameter of 1.25” (girth of 4”) and neck girth of 1.7”. The neck-to-bulb ratio of these plugs means that the neck is comfortable and easy to wear for an extended period of time.

The length of the base and half of the base (that can make vaginal penetration uncomfortable, if applicable to you) for each plug can matter. The small plug has a base length of 2.2” and the flexible end is ~0.75” long. The medium plug has a base length of 2.5” and the flexible end is ~1” long. The large plug has a base length of 3” and the flexible end is ~1.2” long.

Butt Plug Base

The base of the plugs is longer than average, but not very wide, which may be more comfortable for some.

The length of the base may also occlude the vagina, which means that these are not necessarily ideal for use during vaginal intercourse. This is a common problem with T-bar base plugs, though I found it was less of a problem with the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit bases.

Personally, the smallest plug was perfectly fine to be used during vaginal sex, but the length of the base of the other two plugs can pose challenges – depending on your anatomy.

The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs have a flexible base, and this has its pros and cons. The flexibility means that the base can mold to your body. On the other hand, it is slightly harder to remove than a plug that has a firmer base. On Reddit, I have seen several beginners worry about the plug being swallowed inside – while this is unlikely due to the difference in width between the base and the bulb, it could be something to take into consideration.

Comfort

The necks of the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs are excellent – they are relatively thin, which allows them to be worn more comfortably for an extended period of time.

Personally, I did not like the thin flexible base. The thin base pressed into my butt cheeks, which was less comfortable than the average (wider, more substantial) base. This probably depends on your butt, however!

Ease of Cleaning

The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty plugs are easy to clean with soap and water, and they can safely be boiled to sanitize them. There are no hidden nooks or crannies, no imperfections, and no obvious seams to clean.

Does the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty Butt Plug Set Work As It Claims?

Doc Johnson describes the plugs as follows:

“Measuring at 3, 4, and 5 inches, this set is perfectly shaped and sized to help backdoor beginners gently expand the boundaries of their anal experience. The classic tapered tip of Mood Naughty slides right in, and the firm yet flexible material and curved rocker base make these plugs comfortable and safe for extended wear. “

The measurements provided by Doc Johnson are correct. The shape is a classic and ideal shape for a butt plug, and the small diameters are perfect for beginners to anal play. I agree with Doc Johnson’s claims – these plugs live up to the manufacturer’s claims.

Should You Buy This?

The Doc Johnson Mood Naughty set is one of the best butt plug sets around. The spacing between each plug is appropriate, with spacing of 0.25” between each plug. This alone puts it above most anal training/butt plug sets.

The value is excellent. I purchased the set from SheVibe for $24.99. In comparison, a single large Mood Naughty butt plug normally costs $21.99 at SheVibe ($24.99 MSRP). in addition, the price of $24.99 is on the low end of most anal trainer and butt plug sets.

I definitely recommend the Doc Johnson Mood Naughty set if you are a beginner. Due to the widths of the plugs – ranging in width from 0.75” – 1.25” – these are excellent plugs if you don’t have previous experience with anal plugs. The flip side of that is that if you are a little experienced, I might recommend another set like the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit.

If you are inexperienced and are merely concerned with how small the large plugs are, there is an additional Mood Naughty plug available in Extra Large (1.5” in width).

If you are concerned about the base of the plugs, check out the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit – I also highly recommend it (and prefer it slightly).

If you are looking for prostate stimulation, and not really sure that you want an entire set of plugs, the Mood Naughty 2 plugs are designed to provide prostate stimulation.

If you are looking for a softer/squishier plug, I would recommend Oxballs Ergo in XS.

Liberator Zappa Bag

Review: Liberator Zappa Sex Toy Bag

This will be a fairly short review given that the Zappa is a toy storage bag, but it is a bag that I believe is a good choice and a good value.

Design and Material

The Liberator Zappa bag is constructed from a moisture-resistant microsuede exterior and a water-resistant nylon interior. The outside feels like velvet. At least initially, the outside of the bag left some fuzzy bits behind on plastic surfaces. In general, however, the bag feels very high-quality. Personally, I store my Zappa inside of a larger storage box, but I can also use it easily for travel or leave it out in the open without any issues.

There are two zippers at the top of the Liberator Zappa bag, which ensures that you can lock the bag if you need discretion.

Liberator Zappa Bag

I purchased the Liberator Zappa in chocolate, which has a medium brown exterior and black interior.

How Much Does The Liberator Zappa Fit?

The Zappa is large, and at 13.5” x 11” can fit quite a few toys inside. From the picture, you may not imagine how much can fit inside, but the inside is spacious.

Liberator Zappa Bag

I can fit any of the following sets of items into the Zappa:

  • approximately 5-6 dildos (all 6”+ in length, and average to large girth) at the same time and still have room for smaller toys
  • many butt plugs
  • many smaller vibrators

Does It Do What It Says?

Liberator touts the Zappa’s 13.5” x 11” size, its double zipper and ability to be locked, and its ability to hold “a wide variety of toys and accessories, including a Smart Wand”. All of these claims are supported – though I do not currently have a wand to test that exact claim.

Should You Buy the Liberator Zappa bag?

I highly recommend the Liberator Zappa. The Liberator Zappa is:

  • constructed from a high-quality material both inside and out
  • spacious and can fit many toys
  • able to be locked – and thus good for those who need discreet toy storage
  • water-resistant
  • a good value

I purchased the Liberator Zappa for $14 at SheVibe; spending $14 on a bag might not seem like a good value at first glance, but it can be used to store many toys discreetly. It is also higher quality than most bags that are not explicitly made for sex toy storage. I wholeheartedly recommend the Liberator Zappa because of the combination of quality and storage space.

Lovehoney Fifty Shades of Grey Anal Beads

Review: Lovehoney Fifty Shades of Grey Carnal Bliss Anal Beads

If you’re like me, you might immediately write off anything associated with Fifty Shades of Grey. If so, I understand. For many reasons, I am not a fan of Fifty Shades of Grey. There are many problems with the series and its understanding of BDSM and relationship dynamics.

This alone was enough to make me hesitate to purchase the Fifty Shades of Grey anal beads from Lovehoney. In the end, however, I found that they were what I was looking for – a set of small anal beads that can easily be used during sex or during play on my own.

Design and Material

The Fifty Shades of Grey Carnal Bliss anal beads are made from a soft dark grey matte silicone. The material is easy to clean, and there are no parts that you need to pay particular attention to. There are three beads and a loop at the end, making it easy to pull the beads out.

Lovehoney Fifty Shades of Grey Anal Beads

Measurements

The entire length of the beads if 5.5”, while the insertable length is 3”. The diameter of these beads at the fullest width is 0.75” and the circumference is 2.7” at the fullest, so they are very beginner friendly. These anal beads are smaller than most and are among a small group of anal beads that are just 0.75” in diameter at their fullest width. The largest two beads are 2.7” in circumference, while the smallest bead is 2.1” in circumference. There is less than half an inch of space between each bead.

An Excellent Choice for Beginners

When I first used anal beads, I tried 1) toxic, porous beads and 2) beads that were connected using a string (and could not be cleaned or sterilized). Fortunately, these days there are affordable silicone anal beads made from safe materials that can be easily cleaned and sterilized.

I would consider the Fifty Shades of Grey anal beads a good introduction to anal beads. If you haven’t tried anal beads, you might not understand the sensation or know if you would enjoy it. These anal beads are designed similarly to many anal beads – the first bead is smallest, and the beads increase in size. In this case, however, there are only three beads.

If you have never tried anal beads, these beads will allow you to see if the sensation is pleasurable for you. In the end, you might decide to progress to larger sizes, but this is an inexpensive way to decide if it’s what you like. Even if you aren’t a beginner, you might not want 10”+ anal beads, and these still provide a pleasurable sensation in a small package.

Does It Do What It Claims?

Lovehoney says:

“Beginner’s sizing and a smaller first bead makes the set easy to insert and comfortable when in place. Wide spacing between each bead creates an undulating shape for extra stimulation during removal to ensure memorable sensations.”

I agree with the claims made by Lovehoney about these anal beads. The sizing is good for beginners, and the wide spacing provides a good sensation.

Should You Buy These?

I recommend these anal beads if you want a small set of anal beads that are meant for beginners. The value is excellent, especially if you don’t yet know whether you like anal beads.

Even if you are not a beginner to anal play or anal beads, I believe there is some value in this set, as these beads are compact. They can easily be used during sex, and they won’t require much prep.

However, you want anal beads that are thicker or want more beads, this is not a good choice.

If you want small anal beads but want them to be wider, the Blush Anal Adventures small anal beads are 1.25” in diameter at their widest point.

If you want anal beads that are longer, but not very thick, the Vixen small anal beads and Blush Performance anal beads are 0.75” in diameter.

We-Vibe Touch X

Review: We-Vibe Touch X

When I first turned on the new We-Vibe Touch X, I wasn’t sure if there was something wrong. Was it defective? It sounded and felt different, yet still powerful. The new We-Vibe Touch X is noticeably slower and deeper than the We-Vibe Touch.

Packaging and What is Included in the Box

The We-Vibe Touch X comes inside of a beautifully designed box, much like other We-Vibe toys. Included inside the box is the charging cord, a small sample packet of pjur lube, two manuals, and a silky white bag. I love the bags included with We-Vibe items, as they are very high-quality and worth using. I find the bag to be a useful way to store the We-Vibe Touch X, but I can fit two or three similarly sized toys in this bag.

We-Vibe Touch Package Contents

Design and Material

The We-Vibe Touch X is constructed from a silky-smooth silicone. It is somewhat soft, and it is squishy around the “head” of the vibrator. It is slightly squishy all around if you squeeze, but it doesn’t feel particularly squishy otherwise.

We-Vibe Touch X

The deep blue-green of the Green Velvet option is absolutely beautiful. I personally like the purple color of the We-Vibe Touch, but toys made from unique color options do stand out (or blend in, as they can be more discreet). Essentially, it doesn’t look like most vibrators. The Green Velvet color adds a luxury feel to it. The Crave Coral option also looks beautiful and vibrant, while the green is more subdued.

Controls

The controls of the We-Vibe Touch X are well-designed, with separate, defined buttons to increase vibration (+), decrease vibration (-), and adjust patterns (~). This is an ideal configuration, in my mind. This means that you don’t accidentally change the setting, and it also means that you don’t need to cycle through the Pulse and Cha-Cha patterns – unless you want to.

We-Vibe Touch X Controls

With the We-Vibe Touch X, you can easily increase and decrease vibrations. Not only are the controls improved, but there are more vibration levels to choose from. This means that you can go slightly higher or lower.

Another amazing thing about the We-Vibe Touch X is the inclusion of a travel lock feature. This means that you can put the We-Vibe Touch X in your bag without being concerned that you’ll be surprised by an awkwardly timed vibrating bag, or just a dead battery upon arrival.

The Vibrations Feel Slow and Rumbly

I can’t say that I have ever experienced a vibration like the We-Vibe Touch X. I don’t know if it is a better or rumblier vibration, but it is different. The motor is slower and sounds different than the We-Vibe Touch. Nevertheless, it does feel good.

Ease of Use

The We-Vibe Touch X can be used for pinpoint or broader clitoral stimulation. It is a lay-on clitoral vibrator, so it can provide stimulation to the entire vulva. Although it is a clitoral vibrator, it can also be used for other external stimulation – for example, on nipples. The curved scoop shape of the tip of the vibrator is ideal for any rounded or curved area on your body.

Battery

As noted in my comparison between the We-Vibe Touch and We-Vibe Touch X [LINK], the We-Vibe Touch X has a Lithium ion battery. This is a good sign and may prevent battery issues that were experienced with the We-Vibe Touch. The battery on the We-Vibe Touch X lasts up to two hours, but I have found that it lasts around one hour on higher vibration levels.

Charging

The We-Vibe Touch X charges using an included magnetic USB charging cord. The metallic magnetic We-Vibe Touch X charging contacts are more like those on newer We-Vibe vibrators. This new charging style attaches securely, and you can be fully assured that it will be stay attached. This is a great improvement from the We-Vibe Touch, which had a more precarious charging connection. The We-Vibe Touch X charges fully in 90 minutes, which is a fairly quick charging time.

We-Vibe Touch X Charging Contacts

Does the We-Vibe Touch X Live Up To Its Claims?

We-Vibe says:

“The smoothest vibrator – perfect for releasing body tension, head-to-toe body massages and teasing and pleasing your erogenous zones.​”

I agree that the vibrator is smooth, and the scoop shape is excellent to use around your body, though I would most recommend it for clitoral use.

We-Vibe also touts that the We-Vibe Touch X is waterproof (IPX7) and whisper quiet. The We-Vibe Touch X is certainly waterproof, and it is fairly quiet even on higher settings. At the same time, I wouldn’t say that it is whisper quiet on the highest levels. If someone else were in the room with you, it would be heard, but the sounded is dampened by blankets. It is louder than white noise, but not as loud as a vacuum cleaner or hairdryer. On the lowest levels, I truly agree that it is almost imperceptible.

Should You Buy The We-Vibe Touch X?

If the We-Vibe Touch is still available on clearance, you may consider picking that up at a lower price. If that interests you, check out my comparison [LINK] between the We-Vibe Touch and the We-Vibe Touch X.

  • Do you like strong, rumbly vibrations?
  • Are you looking for an external vibrator?
  • Would you prefer a vibrator with the potential for broader stimulation?

If so, I highly recommend the We-Vibe Touch X. We-Vibe has improved upon the We-Vibe Touch controls, charging, and battery issues and created a stunning vibrator.

If you prefer a targeted pinpoint vibration, or prefer a bullet form factor, the We-Vibe Tango X is a great alternative.

Review: Blush Neo Elite Glow in the Dark Dildo

As I mentioned in my review of the Dr. Manhattan, I love things that glow in the dark. Blush also has a line of neon dual-density dildos that don’t glow, but I love the glow and the aesthetic of the Neo Elite Glow in the Dark dildos. The appearance of this dildo reminds me of the jelly toy aesthetic, except it is constructed from body-safe platinum-cured silicone.

Design and Material

I purchased the Blush Neo Elite glow in orange. This is a model that is 7.5” long and without balls (and is also available in blue). The other Blush Neo Elite glow in the dark dildos (in pink or green) instead have 5.5” of insertable length and balls. All of these models have a suction cup at the base. These models are also harness-safe and anal-safe thanks to the flared base.

Dual Density

The design of the Blush Neo Elite Glow in the dark dildo is so fascinating: it is dual-density, and the soft, squishy outer layer is nearly transparent. Due to this almost-transparent outer layer, you can see the firmer core of the dildo. Although it is not unique – there are a few other dildos with the same design – it is fun to see how much of the dildo is taken up by the softer outer layer and how much of the dildo is the inner core.

Blush Neo Elite Glow in the Dark Dildo

The Blush Neo Elite dildos are all dual-density, but they are not as realistic as Vixen Vixskin dildos. I wouldn’t expect them to be given their amazing price ($29.99 at SheVibe or Peepshow Toys). Although they are not quite as realistic as other dual-density models, the outer layer is squishy and wonderfully soft. While it is glossy and soft, is not as tacky as I have found Vixen Vixskin, which is a plus. This dildo is very flexible, but it can also stand up straight on its own, thanks to the firm inner core.

Texture

There is some light veiny texture along the shaft of the Blush Neo Elite glow in the dark dildo. I am able to feel the texture, but it is not too noticeable (for better or for worse, depending on how you feel about textured dildos).

Blush Neo Elite Glow in the Dark in Orange Texture

Measurements and Shape

The Blush Neo Elite glow in the dark dildo has just over 7” of insertable length measuring from the base to the tip of the head. There is a slight curve, but the curve does not necessarily hold its shape in use due to the flexibility of the material. This dildo is tapered: the girth starts at a thin 3.5” at the head, progressing to a slightly below average 4.2” at the mid-shaft, all the way to a slightly above average 5.2” at the base of the shaft. The head is realistic and slightly squishy, but not it is small and is not bulbous.

Blush Neo Elite Glow in the Dark in Orange Head

Ease of Use

I love thicker dildos, but I really enjoy using the Blush Neo Elite glow in the dark dildo. Thanks to its tapered shape and less girthy head, it is easy to use the Blush Neo Elite dildo without much “warm-up”. The tapered shape and flared base also make it a great choice for anal use.

Although the shape of the dildo is curved, I didn’t find it to be particularly effective for G-spot stimulation. The texture along the dildo is nice, but very light, and the head of the dildo is small – for me, this meant a nice sensation, but no G-spot orgasms. Where this dildo did shine for me was for A-spot stimulation. It is long (slightly more than 7”) and squishy enough to stimulate my A-spot and deep vaginal erogenous zones without pain.

The glow in the dark feature is easy to activate with bright light. Just leave it in front of some bright light in advance, and you will end up with a beautiful glowing dildo.

Although there is some light veiny texture, it is very easy to clean the Blush Neo Elite glow in the dark dildo – I haven’t found any issues with the texture or head.

Does It Live Up to Blush’s Claims?

Blush says:

“The two-layer construction creates an ultra-realistic feel – soft yet firm. Neo Elite 7.5 Inch with Suction Cup offers a tapered head for easy insertion. Its above-average length makes using this toy’s strong suction cup easier than ever. Or it’ll fit into your favorite harness!”

I agree with the description given here by Blush – it is not ultra-realistic, but it is a soft, yet firm dual-density dildo with a tapered head and above average length. It is also harness-compatible.

Should You Buy the Blush Neo Elite Glow in the Dark Dildo?

I really enjoy the 7.5” Blush Neo Elite glow in the dark dildo. I recommend it, particularly if you…

  • Like glow in the dark toys. The glow is fairly intense and is very pretty.
  • Like the jelly aesthetic. Some people want jelly dildos – be it for nostalgia or the aesthetic – but this is a body-safe alternative.
  • Want an affordable dual-density dildo. At $29.99, this is an excellent way to explore dual-density toys.
  • Want a toy that is long but not thick. Only towards the base does the Blush Neo Elite glow in the dark dildo approach the girth of an average penis. The sensation is nice, and it also provides potential for A-spot stimulation.

Comparison: We-Vibe Touch vs. We-Vibe Touch X

The We-Vibe Touch X was recently released, and this means that the We-Vibe Touch is on clearance at several retailers – and it is selling fast.

Although I have yet to write a full review of the We-Vibe Touch X, I wanted to write up a quick comparison between the We-Vibe Touch and the new We-Vibe Touch X. Hopefully this comparison can help you decide whether you should pick up the current We-Vibe Touch model while it is still on clearance – or if you should spend a little more for the We-Vibe Touch X. Or if you have tried the We-Vibe Touch in the past, this comparison could help you decide if you would enjoy the We-Vibe Touch X.

Shape and Material

The “head” of the scoop shape of the We-Vibe Touch X is squishier than that of the We-Vibe Touch. I’m not sure how much this matters in practice for most people, but it is softer and has more give. The scoop shape itself is the same, and is excellent for broader or pinpoint stimulation.

Both the We-Vibe Touch and the We-Vibe Touch are made from body-safe silicone. They are almost exactly the same size, though the We-Vibe Touch X is slightly larger (with only millimeters of difference).

Winner: Tie. Both the original We-Vibe Touch and the We-Vibe Touch X have a scoop shape and are constructed from body-safe silicone.

Color Options

The We-Vibe Touch is available in a dark purple, while the We-Vibe Touch X is available in a beautiful dark green and a coral color. Both of these options are aesthetically appealing to me, but I also appreciate the choice of colors in the We-Vibe Touch X.

I personally like purple, but it is such a common sex toy colors – the coral and dark green are uncommon, which is appealing to me. Ultimately, this is a matter of preference, and some people may prefer the purple.

Winner: Tie. We-Vibe Touch X has more color options, but it is a matter of preference.

Vibration

The vibration on the We-Vibe Touch X is strong, but it is much slower and deeper than the We-Vibe Touch.

I like the We-Vibe Touch vibration, but the We-Vibe Touch X vibration is different than similar vibrators that I have tried. It is like a slow purring noise when compared to the We-Vibe Touch.

Winner: Tie.

Charging

One of my least favorite parts of the We-Vibe Touch is the charging port. While both the old and new models attach magnetically, the We-Vibe Touch charger attaches in such a precarious way. If I slightly move the We-Vibe Touch charger, the cord might fall off. This is annoying, but especially if you intend to leave the toy to charge alone or overnight. The charging cord lights up with a solid bright orange while charging, while the new We-Vibe Touch X lights up with a slowly blinking blue light while charging.

The We-Vibe Touch X charging contacts are more like those on newer We-Vibe vibrators. This new charging style attaches securely, and you can be assured that it will stay attached.

Winner: We-Vibe Touch X

Battery

The new We-Vibe Touch X uses a lithium ion battery. There is conflicting information on the We-Vibe Touch website (and I will update this when this is confirmed), but previous iterations of the We-Vibe Touch used Nickel Metal Hydride and Lithium polymer batteries.

Lithium ion and Lithium polymer batteries are both great options, but in general, Lithium polymer batteries have less longevity than Lithium ion batteries. I am hopeful that the change to Lithium ion will result in fewer finicky battery issues with the We-Vibe Touch and Tango models.

Winner: TBD, but probably We-Vibe Touch X

Controls

The We-Vibe Touch controls are not ideal – there is one button used to control it. To turn the We-Vibe Touch on and off, to adjust all power levels and speeds, you use just one button.

The We-Vibe Touch X has much better controls. It has separate controls for increasing the vibration strength. Between these two buttons, it also has a control for the patterns. This means that on the We-Vibe Touch X, you won’t be cycling through the Cha-Cha or Pulse patterns – unless you want to. There are also more levels, which means that you can choose a slightly more intense setting, which is great if you are sensitive to strong vibrations.

We-Vibe Touch X vs. We-Vibe Touch Controls Comparison

The We-Vibe Touch X also includes a charging lock, which is my second least favorite part of the We-Vibe Touch. I am happy that We-Vibe fixed these issues with the previous model.

Winner: We-Vibe Touch X

Which model should you buy?

Overall, I think that the We-Vibe Touch X is worth the extra $30 or so in cost.

The We-Vibe Touch – in my mind – has two flaws that are limiting: the charging connection and the lack of a travel lock. The We-Vibe Touch X removes both of these flaws.

An additional issue that has plagued the We-Vibe Touch (and Tango) models that may be solved with the newer models is the new battery type. While this remains to be seen, essentially all of the flaws with the We-Vibe Touch may be solved.

On the other hand, I believe that the We-Vibe Touch is still an excellent vibrator, especially at its current price.
