Review: Je Joue Mimi

Posted in Gal Pals, Reviews, Trans Toolbox on April 8, 2014 by kdmenterprises

The rechargeable Mimi vibrator by Je Joue is sleek, powerful and perfectly pocket sized. Je Joue calls it a “perfect first toy,”  but this toy can be enjoyed by anyone no matter how big or small your toybox is. product_image_ mimi

It comes in a discrete black box tied with a ribbon, perfect for storage of the toy and charger. The vibrator uses a magnetic charger that plugs directly into the wall and attaches to the plus and minus controls on the bottom of the toy.  This is a great toy for travel because it can be easily and discretely packed without having to worry about batteries.

There are five different levels of vibrations followed by five different pulsation settings that can be cycled through by pushing the plus button at the base of the toy. The lowest vibration set is very rumbly so it is a less harsh type of vibration . While this is designed as a clitoral vibrator, it is also great to use on the nipples or perineum. The buttons are flattened along the bottom curve of the toy, perhaps making it slightly difficult to press, but this is the only downside to this gem. The flattened egg shape fits perfectly into the palm of the hand, making it great to use with a partner because it can be held in place without interfering with other play. There’s also a rounded tip  perfect for lighter or more direct sensation.The outside is coated in silicone, but it is a soft silky texture that doesn’t get sticky. Silicone lubes aren’t recommended for silicone toys, so please use a water based lube! Mimi can be cleaned with soap and water or your favorite. Unlike similar rechargeable toys, Mimi is completely waterproof so you can bring it into the tub! Don’t let this toy’s small size fool you, it is really powerful! And plus, Mimi is less expensive than many of its rechargeable counterparts, which makes it all that much sweeter. Mimi reminds us that good things come in small packages!

Knocking Socks Off: Testicular Cancer Awareness Week

Posted in Male Room, Sexual Health, The Body Politic, Trans Toolbox on April 8, 2014 by anacroniste

We here at the Sexploratorium News Desk were more than pleasantly amused when the newest of NSFW social media trends crossed our path last week: the Instagram and Twitter hashtag #CockInASock.

Bevies of gents doffed their clothes with naught but a lone sock covering their naughty bits and posed for their own cameras, sending the Internet abuzz and all in the name of testicular cancer awareness!

Check out the photos that started this trend!

April 1st -7th was Testicular Cancer Awareness Week, yet organizations like the TC Awareness Society are dedicating the entire month to promoting education and consciousness about this disease, which is mostly detected in those between the ages of 15-35.  While the vast majority of these organizations cater to the education of cisgendered men,  all persons who have testicles (including transwomen and gender nonconforming people) should be aware of their risks, and what to look for. Self-examination is the first line of defense against this highly  treatable disease, with survival rates of up to 95% or higher if caught early.

In order to further the cause of Testicular Cancer awareness, Sexploratorium will be donating a percentage of cock ring sales for the month of April to the Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation. Here’s to knocking those socks off (and knocking cancer out)!

Smooth, powerful, and quiet, the Moka will add just the right “pop!” to your toy arsenal!

Available in 3 bright and fun colors, the Moka is at once appealing and non-intimidating. Smooth body-safe silicone covers the aesthetically pleasing curve of this toy, designed with the preferred 45 degree angle for reaching that special place in mind! The Moka also boasts a curiously flattened top to not only help provide consistent pressure on the G-spot for achieving intense internal orgasms, but allows for smooth application of pressure on the clitoris as well!

This relatively quiet vibe (read: roommate will not have questions) runs for up to 2 solid hours on 2 AAA batteries, providing your with 6 pleasurable speeds. The Moka also boasts 12 intense pulsation modes which are easily accessed by 3 discreetly designed buttons, allowing for ease in switching up the intensity. To top it all off, it’s also waterproof up to 3 feet, making this toy the perfect bathtime companion as well!

In my search for my first G-spot toy, I found everything I needed in the Moka — strong, consistent vibration, near-silent functionality, body- safe construction, smooth curves, and versatility! Perfect for solo use or partner time, the Moka knows how to spice up your playtime!

An Ace In The Hole! : Tantus Ace Plug Review

Posted in Gal Pals, Male Room, Reviews on March 10, 2014 by kdmenterprises

The Ace is a small butt plug from Tantus, a company well known for its quality and wide range of available toys. It is in the shape of (you guessed it!)  an ace and can come in either black or iridescent purple which is super fun and appealing! This little guy is made of 100% platinum silicone, as are all of Tantus’ toys, and comes with a year guarantee. With proper care (like not using silicone lubricant and washing or boiling for sterilization), the Ace will last you a lifetime.

The unassuming Ace is proof that a lot of fun can come in small packages!

I acquired this plug because even though I have some experience with anal toys, I wanted to start with something small, specifically for double penetration. The Ace was exactly what I wanted. Its small size created a  sensation of fullness without being so much that it got in the way or distracted from any other stimulation. The shape of the Ace also made it very easy to keep in during all activities; whether it be oral, double penetration (depending on the body), or just going about your daily business! The base of the Ace is also large enough to never have to worry about losing the plug but not so big that it is uncomfortable for casual wear!

The Ace is also a great toy for total beginners at anal play of any kind.  The silicone is silky smooth with the perfect combination of firmness and flexibility for easy and comfortable insertion.  At its widest,  the Ace is only 1.3″ in diameter…certainly not too intimidating!  It is also a great warm up toy for when the goal is something a bit more girthy!

All around, the Ace is as perfect as you can get for an anal toy of its size. No matter your experience level, you should get one because the fun with this one is undeniable!
