The Mimi is the newest vibrator released from Jejoue . The MiMi is sold through the great woman friendly sex toy shop, Babeland and they were nice enough to give me one in exchange for an honest review. What can I tell you about the MiMi? Well, it comes in the trademark JeJoue purple and a gorgeous bright rose color. I got mine in the Rose color and I love it, it’s nice and vibrant. The Mimi is a smaller vibe; it’s 3 1/2 inches in length and 2 inches at it’s widest point which would be the bottom of the vibe. The shape of the MiMi is similar to an egg, only flat and fits into the palm of your hand. The MiMi is 100% silicone and rechargeable by using the “click n charge” method. The click n charge method means that all you have to do is plug it into the wall and then click the charger onto the vibe instead of having to plug the charger into a port onto the side of the toy. The MiMi is also waterproof so you can take it into the shower with you to play.
I feel that the MiMi would work best for those looking for a stronger vibrator. The reason I say this is because the vibrations are very rumbly on the lower settings and they get very buzzy the higher they go. Even when you get to the pulsating settings it is still pretty buzzy. It was to the point that I was very surprised to get those kind of vibrations out of such a small vibrator. If that is what you are looking for – then this is the right vibe for you to go to. The MiMi is made for external surface stimulation, so you can use it to stimulate your clit, nipples, thighs, anus, etc. I would not however try to insert the vibrator inside you because there is nothing to hold onto and it could get stuck.
The MiMi has no texture whatsoever, it’s just perfectly smooth silicone. It’s a perfect toy if you aren’t looking for anything with texture. I am huge fan of silicone toys because they are soft, feels great to the touch, and extremely easy to clean. The silicone material did have a little bit of a smell when I first opened the box. It wasn’t off putting at all but I was very surprised because have never experienced a silicone toy give off a smell before.
I really like the design of the MiMi, it’s ergonomic and it fits perfectly in the palm of my hand. It’s also very easy to hold between your fingers. Part of the reason I really like the egg shape is that it has a bit of a tip to make pinpoint stimulation a bit easier and it has wide areas to stimulate wider areas. I liked that the vibrator has a bit of a “tongue” shape which makes it easy for me to fantasize and simulate receiving oral sex. I have no problem with the size of the vibrator and it is very travel friendly because it can easily fir into your pocket. The toy is discreet because it is easy to hide, I currently have my MiMi in a small jewelry box beside my bed. This toy would be one of my top choices to take with me when I travel due to it’s size, it’s discreet look, and it’s rechargeable (so you won’t have to pack batteries). Also, the size and shape of the MiMi makes it easy to use during intercourse.
I absolutely love my MiMi and I don’t have any complaints about the functions. I like each of the vibration settings, but usually I will stick to the steady vibrations rather than using the pulsating ones. The only thing I may change about the MiMi are the on and off buttons. Sure it helps for the design to not have both the click n charge buttons and on and off buttons in the same place rather than cluttering different buttons onto the vibrator. It’s just that they are low and can be hard to push with slick fingers if you are using it with lube or in the water. As stated, the MiMi is waterproof, though I did not submerge the MiMi under water – I just took it into the shower with me. I have heard from someone else that their MiMi died after it was submerged in water so I was not brave enough to try it with my nice luxury toy.
The MiMi is extremely easy to care for, it doesn’t take much to clean it. I usually use mild soap and warm water to clean all of my toys. You can also use toy cleaner solutions as well. I store my MiMi in a drawstring toy bag inside my lockable toy chest. The MiMi is a silicone toy so you will want to be sure to stay away from silicone lubricants with this toy because it could possibly ruin the toy. Silicone toys have a bad reaction when combined with silicone lubricants.
All in all, I am in love with the MiMi and I highly recommend it. Sure, it’s a little pricey but it’s well worth the price. I am thrilled to have the MiMi in my collection. It does it’s job, feels great, is very well-made, and not noisy at all.
So what are you waiting for, say “Me, Me!” and go get yourself a MiMi from Babeland Toys!
Thanks to the great shop, Pink Cherry sex toys – I was given the chance to try out the bondage toy, cotton rope – for the very first time. You might be looking at this kind of strangely – I mean you may be thinking “Rope – what’s the big deal about it?” or “I could get that any old place.” Well, there is a lot you can do with rope and yes you could get it any where, but if you want to try out some great “shibari” or rope bondage, you need the perfect kind of rope. This Japanese Style Cotton Rope is manufactured by Doc Johnson made of 100% cotton and 32 feet (10 meters) long. The length works well for many rope bondage tricks and gives you lots of room to maneuver. The rope came in clear plastic packaging with a blue information card and there were no raunchy or pornographic images on it at all. The information card tells you a little information about the rope and on the inside there are a few images of a few knots that you can do. The images were a little hard for me to follow because all they consist of are loose looking knot images. I do better using videos and you can find lots of great videos from Two Knotty Boys.
When I opened the package, I had a good impression of the rope – it is really soft and feels nice against the skin. I feel that the product will most likely suit the more beginner and intermediate bondage enthusiasts. You c an use it to do simple things like wrist and ankle restraint with the rope, but if you want to move onto rope bondage techniques you will want to be sure to read up a bit on the subject first. When it comes to bondage, there are safety responsibilities that go along with it. So you will definitely want to make sure you learn the proper techniques to go along with it.
I did the pull, tug, and tear test on the rope and it holds in nice and strong. The rope is nice and thick not thin and flimsy. I feel like the rope is very well made, it’s woven together and the ends aren’t finished. If you are worried about the unfinished ends fraying even more – you can always clip the ends off with scissors and then quickly paint on them with clear nail polish. Another easy way is to wrap tape around the ends. It all depends on your preference.
Due to the amount included there is more than needed for beginner techniques, I found myself getting a little mixed up due to the amount when doing beginner knots. I’m petite and my partner is tall and slender so we had enough for what we needed. I mostly tried practicing knots and wrist restraints with him with the rope. The rope feels great and doesn’t irritate your skin at all. I got mine in black but you can choose from purple and red as well. I will definitely be going back to Pink Cherry to buy the other colors as well.
As far as washing goes,I have read that you could probably put it in a lingerie bag or one of those bigger bra balls and throw it in the washer. Otherwise you may want to wash it by hand if you feel the need to. I haven’t really needed to wash mine so I can’t be absolutely sure.
All in all, I have a very great impression of the product. It’s great quality, sturdy, and soft, and you have just enough needed to practice getting into rope bondage without having to buy more just yet. This was important for me as I am a beginner to rope bondage and I wasn’t 100% sure on how much I needed. Once I am ready to move onto the elaborate ties I will go ahead and purchase more. I really would love to try color work as well, but that will come once I have had more practice. I highly recommend this rope because my partner and I have had a lot of fun with it so far. I have also managed to do some pretty awesome knot work so I can tell you first hand that once you get the hang of it – it’s not as hard as it looks if that is something you are worried about. Just practice.

What is sleek, shiny, silver and black all over? It’s the Chippendale’s Diva vibrator from Babeland sex toys. The Diva is a fancy luxury vibe and you can tell it’s a luxury just by looking at it. I am thrilled that I was given the chance to review it! The Diva is made of smooth ABS plastic and measures in at 5 inches long. Each end of the vibrator is about 2 1/2 inches wide. One end is the battery compartment, which is opened by pulling off the end cap. It holds 3 AAA batteries and they are very easy to insert and remove (you insert them on top of the ribbon, so you can use the ribbon to help remove them). If you’re like me and you don’t keep AAA batteries on hand, you may want to stock up on them so you can keep them on hand for this toy! The other end of the Diva hold the motor, which is also where the vibrations originate from and then radiate out throughout the toy. This side is referred to as the “pleasure point” and is the side you will set against the area of the body that you want to stimulate. It is controlled by two buttons, the “+” which both turns on and strengthens the vibrations. The “-” which weakens the vibrations and turns it off. If you hold the “+” button for 2 seconds to change through the stimulation modes. There are 8 different modes and they consist of separate continuous, pulsating, and roller coaster (starts slow and speeds up) vibrations in various speeds and patterns.
The Diva also has a little LED light that will shine red when you push a button. It also has a convenient locking function so you can travel with it and not have to worry about it turning on. That will save you from having to think up some story to tell someone about why your bag is vibrating. The Diva is made for external stimulation; it works great for both solo and couple use. The pleasure point end fits naturally against the vulva and also has a small nub to help with pinpoint stimulation. The shape of the vibrator reminds me of a bean shape and the outward curve fits ergonomically in your hand. The inward curve fits against your vulva, breast, neck, arms, or legs. Holding it in the middle, the ends make for a great back massager due to the curved shape.
I love the design of the Diva, it looks completely luxurious due to the shiny and sleek smooth surface of the toy. It is also adorned with a ring of shiny silver. I got the Diva in black, but you also have the choice of white. The surface is completely smooth with no textures – so it’s great for those looking for a textureless external vibrator. The vibration strength varies, so depending on your preference you can choose anywhere from very light to super strong. The controls are very easy to manage and I had no trouble using the toy. It’s not very noisy at all, so I can use it in my room without any worry of my room mate hearing it through a closed door. It’s made of ABS plastic and that is very easy to care for, you just clean it using mild soap and water. It’s only splash proof though, so do not submerge it completely in water.
My impression: I’m always thrilled to be able to try out new and innovative toys. I love this one, it’s design is great and easy to use. I found it both pleasurable during solo and couples use. My partner and I did try to use it during foreplay and I was able to fit it between us during sex in the missionary position and it is also easy to hold and keep in place in other positions as well. I liked it best during sex when we were in missionary with me lying on my stomach and I was able to lay on top of it. You have to position it just right though so it doesn’t press against your pubic bone. I highly recommend the Diva, it’s now my favorite external vibrator that I own. It’s a little pricey, but it’s worth it because I have definitely gotten a lot of use out of it and it’s nice and durable so I don’t see it going out on me anytime soon.
I highly recommend the Chippendale’s Diva and if you would like one of your own, go to Babeland.com and get one. Be sure to check out all of their sex toys, lubricants, and books while you are there as well.
I’m a novice when it comes to anal play, I have experienced it and do enjoy it. That is what brought me to purchasing my very first plug in the first place. When I chose my first plug, I made sure to choose something small and soft. I used and enjoyed my toy off and on until I got used to it. I absolutely loved the stimulation it gave me and decided that I was ready for an upgrade. So when this great sex toy shop, Good vibrations offered me the Tantus Ryder, I said “Yes, please!” Just looking at the picture, I couldn’t resist this shiny purple plug.
The Tantus Ryder is about 4 inches tall with a width of 1 1/2 half inches. It’s a nice and thick plug – but not to the point that it’s too huge. It’s a great upgrade choice for a novice like myself. The Ryder is made up of 100% silicone. Silicone is my first choice when it comes to anal toys. It’s usually a softer material, so I feel that will help with ease and comfort. It is also extremely hygienic and body safe because it is a non-porous material. It’s also very easy to clean because you can wash it regularly, using mild soap and warm water, a toy cleaner, boil the toy in water for a few minutes, or stick it in the dish washer. You have plenty of choices when it comes to a silicone toy.
The Ryder is a perfect fit for those looking for a bigger plug. It can even help as a way to build up and relax your own body for anal intercourse. This was one reason I wanted to try this toy – for some reason, it’s easier for me to insert a toy than it is for me to go straight into anal intercourse. As hard as I try to relax my body, it still gives me trouble, while for a toy – I can take my time and slowly insert it. It helps because I don’t have myself or my partner getting too eager and going too fast. I hope that this toy will eventually help ready me for anal intercourse in the future (I have just been practicing with it so far). Some bonus points for the toys, is that it is long enough to stimulate the prostate so it can work for my partner as well.
Ryder is comes equipped with a flared base for safety and it is made slender as well for comfort. I did not try to wear the plug while I was out and about, so I don’t know how well it works for extended use. I did wear it for over an hour at one time and it felt comfortable and pleasurable the whole time! It also made it very hard for me to wait for my partner to get off from work. It helped to get me going more and more the longer that I had it in.. The texture of the plug is completely smooth and it has a soft almost squishy feel to it. I feel like I could almost use it as a stress relief ball if it was a little bit squishier. The smoothness and softness really helped add to the comfort of the plug.
The Ryder came packaged in the typical Tantus packaging. A clear plastic box with information about Tantus and the toy on it. The package has great design to it graphically, but it’s not discreet at all because you can see exactly what is in the box. The Tantus boxes can be a little bit of a pain to open sometimes., I don’t know why. I think it may be due to me being a little eager to try out the toy. The box didn’t come with any instructions or warnings at all. I don’t use the packaging as a storage box and I don’t think it would be the best one because it can be smashed. I keep my plug in a drawstring bag inside my locking toy chest.
A couple of important side notes about the toy, it is made of silicone so you can not use silicone based lube with the toy – it could ruin your plug! I choose to use a thicker water based lubricant for my plug use. Also, when it comes to lubricant and anal play “A little dot does a lot” is not a proper mentality. You want to be sure to use plenty of lube when it comes to anal play for safety’s sake.
My Impression: I absolutely love my Tantus Ryder, it’s big but not too huge, hygienic, and easy to clean. It gave me the stimulation I was hoping for and it feels great during sex. It’s an extremely comfortable plug, I was a little worried a first because of the size – thinking it may be a little too big for me but it worked great. I’m absolutely in love with this plug and I highly recommend that you try it out if you are curious about it.
