2 Slippery Thumbs Up for Dona Massage Oil

0

by thepleasurechest

The market is practically flooded with massage oils. So when the new Dona brand of aphrodisiac-infused oils was released, we needed an expert opinion. We sent some samples home with our own LittleMissM. Here’s what she told us…

I really love this massage oil! My boyfriend and I tried it in two scents: “blue lotus” and “acai.” The “blue lotus” smells really nice. It’s strong and has an earthy, masculine scent. There’s also a subtle beach-iness to it. My boyfriend isn’t in love with the smell, but I think it’s lush. I would actually wear this in my daily life as a regular skin moisturizer (I normally use virgin coconut oil).

"It’s very sweet smelling-- it makes me think of homemade jam!"

The “acai” oil is clean, fresh and kind of girlie. It’s very sweet smelling– it makes me think of homemade jam! My boyfriend liked it and we had a nice time using it together. It really helped set the mood. I have super dry skin, so for massage, we had to use more than the average bear might but it was definitely worth it. It glided really nicely and left my skin feeling soft, supple and pampered. I’d recommend Dona for anyone who wants a massage oil that has nice scents and feels good on the skin. Also, if you’re into using more natural products, the Dona brand is great, because you can pronounce and recognize almost all of the ingredients. However, if your nose is particular or sensitive to scented things, you might want to pass on the “acai” smell because it’s rather potent. All-in-all, I’d give it two thumbs up.

The NoseBanger. Turn On or Buzz Off?

2

by thepleasurechest

Last month, we introduced you to the Heeldo, a strap-on harness for the foot. In total, 113 of you voted and a whopping 83% were fans of footballin’, while just 17% wanted to kick the Heeldo to the curb. It probably helped that Heeldo told its Twitter followers to toe the line and vote in our poll. But we don’t want our praise to seem arch or callous. So we’ll simply say congratulations Heeldo!

The NoseBanger

This month’s contender on Turn On or Buzz Off ain’t nothin’ to sneeze at. Meet the NoseBanger, the world’s first (only?) nose-stimulating dildo. Last year, we wrote about the tentative discovery of the N-Spot, an erogenous zone in the right nostril. Located  in the columella, the fleshy outer part of the septum, this discreet bundle of nerves is quite sensitive to pressure. Many dedicated nasal spelunkers have even discovered the ability to have an “orgasm-like” experience when probing the N-Spot.

According to the marketing literature sent with the NoseBanger, its creators are hoping to um, fill the hole in the market for toys catering to nasophiles:

Made of platinum cure, body-safe silicone, the NoseBanger is the world’s first nasal dildo. Simply slip the NoseBanger over your index finger, generously apply lubricant, and then gently insert into your nostril or your partner’s.

N-Spot detail

If you are “N-Spotting,” insert into the right nostril and gently push the head of the NoseBanger to the mid-point of the septum. Gently and firmly rub the cartilage to awaken and stimulate the nerve bundle. With dedicated practice, many users report experiencing climax. Whether to pleasure your N-Spot or simply to enjoy penetration in a new way, the NoseBanger guarantees hours of fun! 

The NoseBanger’s creators also suggest slipping a condom over your finger, for protection and to prevent slippage. Though it can be used with any lube, they’re recommending their own viscous, water-based formula I Can’t Believe It’S Not Lube.

Say what you will about the inventors of the NoseBanger– they’ve got a sense of humor. In fact, their pun-filled brochure is like mucus to our ears. We wonder what their manufacturing process looks like. Can we take a tour of the ole’ factory?

Special Lubricant

Unfortunately, the makers of the NoseBanger did not send along any photos of their product in use. But given the rise in nasophilia, we smell a hit! It shouldn’t be long before nasophiles are posting pics of their plundered holes on schnoz sites all over the interwebs.

On the other hand, we have some logistical questions. Won’t we look a bit silly with a small cock up our noses? And what about nose hair? Do we wax it bare or keep the classic bush? Won’t this toy just make us insecure about the size of our nostrils?

What about you? Do you dig the NoseBanger? Would you pick it or flick it? Take our poll!

Liberator Slingshot Hits the Spot

0

by thepleasurechest

Finding the perfect position can be a challenge. The Liberator Slingshot is an adjustable sling designed for optimal positioning during penetrative sex. We asked our Web Department Supervisor Lillian to take aim and report back to us. Bullseye! 

My boyfriend and I are creepily compatible in almost every way. PIV sex, however, has always been a challenge. I’m short and fat; he’s tall and thin. Neither of us is at all flexible and we both suffer from chronic pain due to work-related injuries. The challenge of us attempting to try out new positions is analogous to the Tin Man taking a Bikram yoga class. “Cowgirl” can work, but I often get carried away and break furniture.

I’m not going to say that the Liberator Slingshot solved all of our problems, but our battle with PIV positioning is finally over. Liberator’s microfiber material is soft and pleasant, but more importantly, it didn’t chafe once I started to sweat. It’s pretty self-explanatory: strap the Velcro and microfiber cuffs to your ankles and place the main cushion behind your neck. Grab the nylon straps with your hands and pull to shorten the leg straps, and voila! Your legs are in the air! Your partner can also use the leg straps to spread your legs wider.

"Ask my next door neighbor—there’s no way he missed my screaming testimonial."

It was great. Ask my next door neighbor—there’s no way he missed my screaming testimonial. You could even ask his dog, because I’m pretty sure my voice went to octaves that humans can’t hear. The Slingshot allows me to have amazing G-spotty sex without trying to contort myself into uncomfortable positions or having to use large, expensive pieces of sex furniture.

The only improvement I would make on it would be to add microfiber handles to the ends of the nylon straps. Holding the straps became difficult and a little bit painful as my hands got sweatier and I had to grip them tighter to keep them from slipping out of my grasp. Still, I’m pretty excited that I can indeed have super hot pleasurable PIV sex without first having to do years of yoga and Pilates.
