Modest Lubrications @Lubezilla

They say Great Sex is made from Great Communication . . . and whilst that’s certainly always been true for me, I would like to add another line to that mantra . . . “great sex is made even greater by great lubrication”.

Because as I’ve found as I’ve “matured” over the past few years, I really do need more lubrication than I used to. It’s just a natural consequence of growing a little older of course. The desire is still there . . . but as our bodies change, particularly through menopause, we produce less natural juices don’t we.

If you’re a regular visitor here you will know that I’ve been happily non-monogamous for a long, long time. (And I stress the happily . . . and long
. . . LOL!!!!) And in the earlier years of our open-relationship lifestyle I was actually very naïve about lubricants. And possibly even quite dismissive . . . as I simply didn’t ever seem to need any additional wetness.

The only time I would ever think about lube was during swingers evenings when, of course, it was a mandatory accessory . . . but as I say, I was naïve and yes, I will admit, probably uninterested.

What changed my mind? Well . . . nature changed my body . . . and my body changed my mind. So, over the past few years lubrication has been a new, and necessary accessory to my lifestyle.

And as it became more “necessary” . . . So it became much more important for me to think more about exactly what it was that was being spread on to my personal bits.

In the first instance(s) of course, I could sense what I liked and what I didn’t. Not from reading the label or asking for a detailed ingredients breakdown as it was about to be applied. After all in the “subdued” lighting of the couples room at Swingers-4-Fun et al, it was hardly the environment or appropriate moment(s) to enquire. But I could “feel” the sticky, tackiness (sic!!!) . . . or smell . . . or taste, the residue or after-burn! So I suddenly decided that I needed to take much more of an interest in lubricants and what they contained or what they were made of. After all, we are all much more careful nowadays of the additives and ingredients in the food we eat, and the deodorants, soaps and shampoo we use . . . so surely we should be just as careful about the personal body-products we use. In fact even more so !!!

Of course it was easy . . . very easy . . . to quickly shun the straight-off-the-supermarket-shelf, seemingly universally popular and well-known brand-name make. You know the one, the one that looks like cough-mixture and has that consistency of a slow-drying glue!

But where to go from there? After all, each of us are different! And each of us react in different ways and different situations. And nowadays there are just so many different sorts and different styles of lubricating options available.

Ok, well perhaps still not, in one’s local supermarket. But certainly on-line!!!

Water-based, silicone based, oil, hybrid . . . lubricants for anal play, naturally organic lubes, flavoured lubes, non-flavoured lubes. And what about all those ingredients, what are Parabens? Glycerins?

So many options and so many questions . . . it can be confusing and overwhelming even just thinking about them. But don’t worry, I’m not going to go into all those sorts of details here . . . you know me, I’m not the most technically-minded at the best of times.

But I don’t have to be . . . and you don’t either . . . because Lubezilla.com has the most incredible, fully-descriptive and comprehensive lists and links for anything and everything to do with lubricants, that I’ve ever come across.

This amazing website at Lubezilla.com is like a wonderfully wicked-pedia online-resource for what seems like almost every brand, and every type of lubricant, one could ever imagine. And browsing their fabulous website you can’t help but be impressed by the detail and research, and the obvious amount of time and effort that has gone into it’s development.

The layout is clear and easy to read and every link and every product seems to have an amazingly detailed description of  lubricant type, size, content, and ingredient-list of just what it’s made from.

AND every item has it’s own 1-minute-plus, descriptive video with product demonstrations and concise information about the particular brand and it’s uses. They are simply fabulous!!!

The Lubezilla 101 section of the site features blog-style postings covering a huge range of interesting and informative stories and helpful hints and answers to all those Frequently Asked Questions that one might have about not just Lubricants, but Condoms, sexual health and best practices.

AND . . . I’m getting all “lubricated” the more I talk about it . . . Lubezilla.com . . . doesn’t just stock lubricants, they also offer an absolutely huge range of Adult Toys and Accessories and an equally large range of Body and Beauty and Sexual Hygiene products.

For my North American readers Lubezilla.com has free delivery on all orders over $50 . . . BUT don’t worry, they do ship internationally as well, and the packaging is discreet and noted as “novelty products”.

As I say, I’ve become quite excited as I’ve been sitting here typing away about Lubezilla.com . . . and I’m sure you will soon be thrilling to learn more about lubrication . . . and more . . . as well.  So I truly urge you to start with their lovely welcoming video by clicking on the link above (or >here< if you’re already too excited to be able to scroll back up the page!!!) I know you won’t be disappointed.

Modesty Ablaze reviews the “Fetish Fantasy Shock Therapy Fantasy Wand” @UberKinky

I’ve been curious about electro-play for some time . . . curious because I have often been asked about it by prospective submissives . . . but the only Electro-Stim toy in my Mistresses-box up until now (my Cockshocker) has proved a little too extreme for most of them.

So I was delighted to receive the Fetish Fantasy Shock Therapy Fantasy Wand from my favourite on-line Kink store, Uberkinky, not only because of it’s description as being “perfect for electro-sex beginners”, but also because it allows hand-held, rather than fixed strap-on, use. There are lots of different electro-stim devices and apparatus at electro sex pages, but from the look and design of the Fantasy Wand, I felt it would be ideal for a little more “sympathetic” control.

The Wand is nicely packaged in a glossy cardboard box with excellent illustrative instructions and tips printed on the reverse and sides. But I must admit that when I first unwrapped the wand from it’s bubble-wrapping, the plastic-moulded shaft itself did feel a little “cheap”. However, once I overcame that initial disappointment, it is light and easy to hold and is certainly simple to operate with a large control button which allows one to cycle through nine different levels of intensity. Each level is indicated by a red LED number which displays at the top of the switch as it changes. The power, or charge, is provided by one normal AA Alkaline battery which slides into a compartment on the base of the handle. The battery is not supplied by-the-way, so you would have to purchase that separately, (or borrow from one of your other battery operated toys, or household items).

The wand itself is just over 6 inches long but is supplied with three different, detachable, heads which screw onto the top of the wand and each gives a slightly different sensation, particularly at the lower intensity settings*. The flat head (30mm square) has five rows of what I would describe as small “spikes” raised above the surface. They are actually very small but give the feeling of “sparking-pinpricks” on contact. The larger cylindrical head (40mm long and around 60mm in circumference at its widest point) gives a more tangible “jolt”, whilst the smaller, rounded head (10mm in diameter) has a more “tingling” sensation. *These three, distinct, sensations are more discernible at the lower intensity settings because, for me at least, if the intensity is set on the higher level of 8 or 9, my own uncontrollable reaction is to pull away immediately on contact . . . without wanting to try and differentiate on the specific sensation! I am obviously an electro-sissy and not capable, in any way, of being on the receiving end!!!

And I know this because I found it quite tricky initially to operate the wand. Not tricky in the sense of turning it on, or selecting the level I wanted to dish-out, but tricky in the actual application . . . because in order to discharge-the-charge, one has to firmly hold the head of the wand against the receivers skin, and not just tap it against the skin as I kept wanting to do. I think the anticipation of imagining that the receiver would immediately “jump” meant that initially I was involuntarily just tapping the head on my sub’s flesh and not holding it down, firmly in place. So, of course, I was pulling the head away far too quickly for it to actually discharge.

But once I mastered my rhythm of application . . . I actually found it quite fun to watch and apply as my “testing-assistant” jumped and exclaimed . . . and described the sensation of each charge. Oh, and there is no need to worry about over-doing the charge, because simply holding down the button for more than a few seconds automatically turns the wand off. I found this a bit tricky to master at first as well, but . . . practice makes perfect!

I did learn rather quickly though, to not touch the “receiving” partner or submissive, with my free hand because that obviously completes an electrical circuit, or contact, and sent a surging jolt right back to me! So be warned, if you are an electro-sissy like me, apply . . . but don’t touch . . .

Uberkinky do say that conductivity can be improved by applying some electro-gel to the receiver’s skin . . . and whilst I haven’t used a specific electro-gel, I have found that applying some normal water-based lube has a similar affect.

Now I realise that real aficionados of electro-stim will probably consider The Uberkinky Fetish Fantasy Shock Therapy Fantasy Wand as a rather inconsequential toy . . . and I also realise that electro-play will certainly not be for everyone, especially as we all have different levels, or limits, as to what we like or can take. But, after a bit of practice, I’ve actually found it to be quite a lot of fun. And I think the different intensity levels and settings, also make it a useful starting toy for some sexy playtime fun with one’s own partner. It even comes with a small black-out mask to heighten the intensity with the extra-fun element of surprise.

And, in any event, for the sake of comparison and different options, Uberkinky have lots of “other” electric items and accessories available at their Electro Sex page >here<.

The Fetish Fantasy Shock Therapy Fantasy Wand:

Modesty Ablaze reviews the “Rimba Bondage Belt” @UberKinky

Whilst it’s always fun to simply handcuff one’s submissive’s wrists together, or perhaps attach their arms to a fixed frame or St Andrews Cross, there are often times when I want them to be more mobile. To be able to lead them around and have unhindered access to their bum or back in one moment . . . and then spin them around to have some fun pinching nipples and, of course, whatever else is available . . . the next!

And this Rimba Bondage Belt and Handcuff set, from my favourite on-line Kink store Uberkinky, is ideal for those exact moments.

The Rimba Bondage Belt arrived quite modestly packaged in just a zip-lock plastic bag with a cardboard insert with one photograph and the manufacturers logo. (Delivered in a discreet manilla postal jiffy bag of course).

But the strong leather manufacture and simple design need no other explanation or packaging as the purpose and intention of the belt is perfectly obvious.

The belt itself is 2 inches wide and made from high quality Black Leather with stitched edging and a large chrome buckle firmly attached with two chrome rivets. It comes in two sizes, to fit Small to Medium waist, or Medium to Large. Each side of the belt has a large chrome D-ring attached (again with double chrome rivet attachments) to which the wrist cuffs are attached with chrome carabiners-clips.

Also made from strong black leather, the wrist cuffs have the 1¼ inch wide, and 12 inch long leather tongue attached to the 2 inch wide bands themselves with 4 strong chrome rivets. Once again the buckle is a strong chrome fixing, as is the D-ring which, with it’s carabiner clip, attaches one to each side of the belt.

For it’s first use, I was able to attach it quickly and easily to my submissives belt, which after my firm instruction, he had already buckled himself up into.

And it certainly does what it is intended to, as I began our session. The D-rings on the cuffs are large enough to allow rope and other attachments to be clipped on as well . . . as my willing (always willing!) submissive soon found out. I had him attached quite differently to how he would normally be restrained and that in itself led to heightened levels of intensity. I sometimes worry if I have a subs arms stretched up above his head, or cuffed behind his back for too long a time. But . . . apparently this arms-by-the-side restraint is much more comfortable. Even if my administrations to his back . . . and front . . . were far less so.

So I am delighted with this latest addition to my sessioning equipment and can highly recommend this Rimba Bondage Belt and Handcuff set from Uberkinky. And don’t forget there are many more Bondage items and accessories available at their Bondage Gear page >here<.

The Rimba Bondage Belt with Hand Cuffs:
Modesty Rating:
9 out of 10
Pros: Easy to put the belt on and quickly clip ones submissive’s wrist cuffs to the waist band.
Cons: I think the wrist cuffs would benefit from another D-ring on the other side of the cuff, near the buckle, to make additional fixtures/restraint easier.
Material: Good quality black leather with chrome metal finishing and D-ring attachments.
Measurements: Belt sizes of Small to Medium Size to fit 75 – 90cm; or Medium to Large Size to fit 90 – 105cm. Main belt width of 2 inches. The Wrist Cuffs are just under 12 inches long and 1¼ inch wide.
Colour: Black.
Waterproof: No.
After-care: As with normal leather products they should be cleaned with a damp cloth and dried immediately afterwards.

Modesty Ablaze reviews the “Sex Bondage Kit” from pinkbob.com

Whatever ones thoughts on the merits of the Fifty Shades phenomenon, there is no denying that it certainly  brought the subject of BDSM out of the “shadows” and into the mainstream. And with the second film in the series about to be released here in the UK, it is sure to arouse yet more interest again.

So I was pleasantly surprised when a quite substantial Sex Bondage Starters Kit arrived in my mailbox recently. Not that I’m a “starter” of course . . . if you’ve been visiting me here over the past few years you will know how much I enjoy my BDSM-side . . . but it’s always nice to experiment with new and different play-things. Particularly when those playthings are from PinkB.O.B., the manufacturer of my all-time favourite Rechargeable Wand Vibrator The Lust (see my review from October).

The Sex Bondage Kit is from PinkBob’s reasonably new Master Kink range and contains eight different items (at an amazing price) which is sure to provide lots of fun, and lots of adventures, whether you are indeed a “starter” or, a more “experienceed” kinkster.

Now, I firstly wanted to say that all of the items here appear to have been made in China. But don’t you dare throw up your hands in disgust and tell me that that must mean “low quality”, because that is far from the case! The quality, and strength, of all of the items here (and YES I have already tested all of them in more than one session) is actually very impressive.

All the actual measurements of each item are available from the manufacturers Amazon page links below (in my normal Specifications Panel), so I won’t list them again all individually, but my favourite item is the Black Mini Flogger.  It is just the perfect weight and size for some close-up and personal (I’m sure you know where) flogging. The handle is just over 4 inches in length and about ¾ inch diameter and fits perfectly in ones hand. It is very light and comfortable to hold, and the fifteen thin leather strands (each just over ½ inch wide) make for a lovely stinging sensations when “in use”. I have used it now on several occasions over the past few weeks and it has become one of the first items I reach for from my “Mistress Cabinet” when I am packing for a new session. In other words, it can make more of an impression than you might at first think . . . but equally makes an ideal first-impact-toy for kinky bedroom foreplay as well.

As in fact, do all the items included in the Master Kink Bondage Kit. And, as I mentioned, the kit price is just amazing when you consider it includes The Flogger, two Wrist Cuffs (with a detachable chain link), a quite lovely Black Leather Mask, a Breathable Ball Gag (which I have already previously reviewed in May 2016), a strong Black Bondage Rope, Nipple Clamps, a Black Leather Collar and a Black Leash (which can clip onto either the Collar itself, or the Wrist Cuffs).

And, a nice touch as well, is the inclusion of a small fold-out leaflet of the “Master Kink Official Guide to Bondage” . . . although I would have liked more information to have been included with each item on material details and after-care.

As well as the eight items included in the Bondage Kit itself, Master Kink (which seems more appropriate for me to use in this context rather than PinkB.O.B.) also sent me a Hog Tie Restraint, a thicker Black Leather Collar & Chain Leash, and some Chain Nipple Clamps.

If you’ve never used Hog Tie Restraints before I can assure you they are certainly lots of fun. The soft faux fur material, and velcro fastening, make them easy and comfortable to apply. They really are ideal for some naughty bedroom fun and perfectly safe to use.

As are the Chain Nipple Clamps which are rubber tipped and non-piercing and non-abrasive, and have a sliding catch for adjustable “pressure”, but still easily and quickly removed. So you get all the pleasure and arousal of nipple play without any lasting  pain.

And finally, that thick Black Leather Collar and it’s Chain Leash. With it’s main leather neck strap of 2 ¼ inches wide and attached thinner restraining strap (1 ¼ inch wide and chrome buckle and double rivet holes) it is adjustable from 12 to 17 ½ inches. It has a strong chrome D-ring attachment at the front to which one can attach the supplied Chain Leash. The leash itself is 31 inches long so ideal for leading ones submissive around the Dungeon, (or as I did last week, on a Fetish-Club night out).

As I’ve mentioned already, all of these items are available at quite amazing prices from Master Kink’s Amazon pages from the links below. I don’t think they ship internationally, but if you live within the US, I highly recommend you make Master Kink your first-stop Fetish shop!!!

Modesty Ablaze reviews the “Aslan Leather Cherry Jag Strap On Harness” @UberKinky

I find there’s something quite empowering about pulling-on a strap-on! Even before my Mistressing, I had bought one several years earlier . . . for “home-use”. Just for that feeling of being completely and totally in control, reversing the “norm” . . . and you’ll probably know how much I enjoy reversing the norm!

That very first strap-on was actually neither comfortable nor practical and I had to replace it once I began more regular “sessioning”. But I’d never been completely happy with the replacement I’d chosen either . . . sacrificing style for what I thought would be stronger and more likely to stay in the right place once I’d got it on. So I was quite pleased when I received the Aslan Leather Cherry Jag Strap On Harness from my favourite on-line kink store Uberkinky as, at the very least, I would have an alternative option in my Mistressing wardrobe.

Uberkinky have quite a selection of items in their Strap On Harnesses range, so one is spoilt for choice. But I am delighted to say that the Aslan Leather Cherry Jag Strap On Harness has immediately become not just an alternative option . . . but the only option . . . for my sessions.

The harness arrived quite modestly packaged inside a clear, sealed, plastic bag. No outer packaging, apart from the plain manilla bubble-wrap lined postal envelope of course! But as soon as one feels the actual leather itself, you immediately feel the quality and strength of manufacture, and no it is not made in China . . . it is actually manufactured in Canada!!!

The cherry colour gives the Aslan a stylish look on it’s own, but it is the fine stitching and strong chrome double-rivets, d-rings and buckles that make this harness stand-out from my previous (and now discarded) strap-on apparel.

 

The design of the front triangular panel, and easily adjustable straps, make the Aslan Leather Cherry Jag Strap On Harness really quite light, easy to put-on, and extremely comfortable to wear. That front panel has a circular opening for a dildo (not included) and three adjustable straps with strong chrome button studs which unclip, and clip back again, to hold a rubber o-ring to hold your dildo in place.

Just an important note: the Aslan Strap-on Harness doesn’t come with a dildo, but the harness does come with an o-ring already attached, which proved to be a perfect fit for my favourite red “starter” dildo. But I found it quick and easy to replace this with a slightly larger one when up-sizing to my medium or large dildo’s . . . for my more “experienced” submissives.

Chrome d-rings attach the straps of the belt at each side of the top of  the front panel. At 1” wide these straps are just the perfect width, stable and so comfortable you soon forget they are what is holding “your manhood” in position. The adjustable buckles on each side of the belt means that the harness fits comfortably around one’s hips rather than the waist! There are two slightly thinner (3/4″) straps attached to the bottom of the front panel which run under the crotch and back up to the back-belt. These straps can be worn in either a g-string type arrangement running side-by-side between one’s bum-cheeks, or in a jock-strap style across the cheeks up to the belt. Again they are completely, and easily, adjustable where they attach to the belt, but . . . and this is my only criticism of the Aslan Leather Cherry Jag Strap-on Harness . . . I would have liked there to have been a small band, or perhaps clip of some kind, to hold the strap together after it slots through the locking d-rings and folds back on itself.

The natural curl of the leather makes the ends of each strap here curl up and away from the body . . . I know I am only talking about an aesthetic “look” that in no-way detracts from the function of this strap-on harness, and that you will probably think I am just being overly anal (excuse the pun!) . . . but “the look of things” is always important to me as well.

So, if you look closely at the pictures to the right you will see that I have attached some tape around the ends just to keep them flat . . . but, as I say, you may think I am just being “anal”.

But really that is my only, only criticism of the wonderful Aslan Leather Cherry Jag Strap-on Harness . . . and as I mentioned at the beginning of my review . . . this harness has become my favourite and the very first item I pack into my sessioning carry-case!!!

Modesty Ablaze reviews the “Zado Leather Chastity Belt” @UberKinky

I’ve always been intrigued by chastity devices . . . not for me silly (heavens no,
I never could !!!) . . . Male Chastity Devices I mean !

A lot of that intrigue has been from just the visual point-of-view as I do enjoy looking at the various ways male genitalia can be caged and locked and restrained. But, of course, I also enjoy the psychological side of being in physical control of that genitalia. In control of not just the wearers arousal, and sexual availability, but of their very manhood. All of the subs who have asked me over the past 18 months or so, to be their keyholder, have told me that it is that constant reminder of being under the control of a Mistress that is the reason they so desire to wear one. Which, of course, is just what I love to hear!!!

And the first place I always instruct them to look for the device of their choice, is my favourite on-line Kink shop, Uberkinky.

Now, I have reviewed one of the Uberkinky Chastity Devices before . . . See my video review from March 2015 . . . but a change of style is always fun isn’t it, so following a new enquiry recently I thought I would ask the lovely UberKinky-people for the Zado Leather Chastity Belt instead.

It arrived in quite a large, glossy cardboard box actually . . . I mean once I took it out of the discreet, plain manilla Jiffy-postal bag, that is. “Very nicely packaged” I thought, and the picture of the male-model on the front and back was very nice as well!

The Zado Leather Chastity Belt is made from strong black leather and certainly looks, and feels, much more substantial than the previous devices I have seen. As you will see from my accompanying photos it is, as the name states, a Belt and Pouch arrangement rather than a cage-type attachment. And, because it is so different, I rather liked it.

The Zado Leather Chastity Belt also comes with a very impressive, and quite heavy little metal padlock, and three keys and, as you can probably imagine, I was quite keen to strap my willing assistant into his restraint.

The leather waist straps are 2 inches wide at the back and side, and padded with a foam lining for comfort and to prevent chafing against the skin. They circle around the subs waist with narrower 1 inch “tongues” which slide into a flap on each side of the top part of the pouch. The belt fits a waist size of between 39 to 55 inches . . . and although my sub doesn’t look quite as “fit” as the model on the box, I was quite happy with the result when I strapped him in!

Each left and right-hand tongue has fixing slots, spaced about 1 inch apart, which fit over a metal d-ring attached to the top of the pouch. This pouch, made up of thinner (half-inch wide) strips of leather forms a small basket-type design with narrow gaps of about ¾ inch square which allows our subjects skin to “breathe”. It is fixed to the straps with firm chrome rivets which attach to the back of the belt in a harness type design, running between the subs legs and joined at the back with a fixed d-ring type construction. I think it looks quite nice, pulling tightly between the bum cheeks, and adding to the overall “bondage” type element of the device.

As I mentioned, the padlock itself, is quite strong and clips over the front d-ring once each belt has been tightened and slotted in place over that d-ring. I’m told that the belt is “fairly comfortable” to wear, but it clearly does need to be pulled quite tightly, so as not to allow things to fall or squirm out of that pouch at the bottom or sides.

My sub qualified that “fairly comfortable” statement by saying that after several hours of wear, the thinner edges of the pouch occasionally did rub against his scrotum. “Good”, I replied, “that reminds you of your position then doesn’t it?”

In both looks and restraint then, I rather liked this first test of the Zado Leather Chastity Belt in action. However, a further hour or so after that “rubbing” moan came a more pressing . . . and I had to admit . . . a more realistic complaint. He “desperately needed a pee”!!!

Now, with the other devices I had already commissioned, toilet necessities were entirely possible (after a little practice and adjustment for “aim and direction”) through the bars, or small opening at the end of the cage or cylinder. And, of course, those designs don’t have an under-and-between-the-legs strap for when the wearer needs a “number 2”.

After a quick re-consideration and inspection of the front of the pouch, and some forced adjustment of the enclosed penis in an attempt to position it between the gaps of the basket-strapping, we both concluded that the result would be too hit-and-miss . . . and too messy. So a quick, temporary, release was necessary. This rather annoying interruption also made me realise that prolonged wear of The Zado Leather Chastity Belt would not be possible, not only because of toiletry necessity, but also because the leather would not be suitable for normal showering or bathing.

So I would have to, disappointingly, say The Zado Leather Chastity Belt is for me not practically suitable for prolonged enforced “chastity” in the traditional sense . . . for the usual requests I occasionally receive from new submissives wishing to be “locked in mistresses control for weeks and weeks”.

However, all is not lost for this belt, because what I can attest to is that it does make for the perfect Cuckholding-Chastity belt . . . which I have already put to successful use during several recent liaisons (for which video evidence may follow in the coming weeks!)

So if Cuckholding is your thing, then this Zado Leather Chastity Belt is absolutely ideal !!!

Modesty Ablaze reviews the “Farringdon Titanium Dildo” @crownedjewels

crownedjewelsmain

Sometimes you can “sense” quality can’t you? Even if you are just browsing on-line and haven’t previously heard of the company, or item, in question.

It may be something as simple as the company name that first attracts your attention . . . or perhaps their branding or design “look” of the website.  Possibly the item description, or more likely the images, entice and intrigue you further. And from the moment you decide to click on that “select” button, you are waiting in eager anticipation for the package to arrive . . . only to find on receipt, that the item you were so excitedly waiting for, simply fails to live-up to the expectation you’d imagined.

Well I can happily report that that was absolutely NOT the case when my Crowned Jewels Farringdon Titanium Dildo recently arrived in my post, because . . . everything . . . about this amazing, luxury handcrafted dildo, just oozes quality, style and substance.

And over the past few weeks it has become my favourite new toy, lovingly nestled beneath my pillow case and frequently caressed and . . . well . . .  I’d better get back to that moment when the parcel first arrived in my post, otherwise I’ll get too carried away again and just won’t get this post finished!!!

So . . . The Farringdon arrived in a really strong postal tube, like the sort of thing you’d expect a picture poster to arrive in, only much stronger and more substantial, thick cardboard and with those strong white plastic caps. I’d imagined the dildo itself would probably just be packaged in a thin box, or bubble-wrap wrapping inside as I un-picked the tape from the top plastic cap and opened the tube. But I was surprised, and excited to discover a wonderfully stylish black cylindrical tube inside.

crownedjewelsheldtube

And, even more stylish and impressive, was the fact that this completely black tube had it’s own cap secured in place with a strong black ribbon running down and around the complete depth of the cylinder and sealed in place at the top with a red wax seal. You know, just like those wonderful seals you’ve seen on TV of those historical-charters and royal decrees. And, of course, to complete the look the seal was impregnated with the Crowned Jewels logo in the wax itself. It made me feel quite special, and privileged in a way, to be peeling open the seal and peeking inside.

crownedjewelsunwrapped

Black tissue paper firmly filled the inside of the tube as I pulled out the layers to reveal a lovely black fabric bag with the Crowned Jewels logo printed, stylishly of course, in silver on one side.

crownedjewelsmain1

And the instant I undid the drawstring of the pouch, and slid the Farringdon out into the palm of my hand, I knew that my “sense” of  quality was not going to be disappointed.  Just the feel, and weight, of the dildo in my hand was lovely to behold . . . and even more stylish and exciting to look at, than the pictures I had seen on the Crowned Jewels website.

I had chosen the “natural grey” colour for my Farringdon . . . more on colours, and choice, a little later . . . but the dildo was actually much more shiny, almost a silvery-chrome looking, than one might expect from the “natural grey” description. And the feel? Oh . . . just heavenly.

crownedjewelshand1

It is just over 7½ inches long and slighty curved along it’s length. As you can see from my photos, one end has a larger single, almost egg-shaped bulb, the circumference of which is about 3¾ inches around its widest point. It then tapers down to a narrower shaft for the next half of the dildos overall length, before widening again for the first of four more bulbs, each graduating down in size from the larger one in the middle of around 1¼ inches in diameter, to the smallest at the end, of around ¾ inch in diameter. I was excited by the shapes and feel of these as I rolled and squeezed the dildo in my hand . . . so shiny and smooth against my skin . . . but it was the weight of the dildo that I found most exciting!

The Farringdon is made of body safe, Medical Grade Titanium . . . (completely free of Nickel, Cadmium and Lead) . . . and, as such, is actually lighter than steel (half the weight apparently). But it feels delightfully weighty and substantial, both in ones hand, and also internally!

Now I am of an age where I almost always need some lubricating help nowadays for all of my other, insertable, toys. Even for my favourite “smoothest” silicone or glass dildos I have to begin by applying a coating of lube. But, as I slid that longer stem up and down between my lips and then over my clit for the first time, I immediately began to tingle and swoon. On that first touch, just freshly removed from it’s pouch, the Farringdon felt cold and instantly arousing as it slid against me. And it just seemed to effortlessly glide . . . and slide . . . inside me at the very first moment of asking. I wondered afterwards whether it was just my initial excitement and anticipation, or that first cold sensation of the titanium against me, that had made it such an immediate and easy entry. But actually, for vaginal insertion at least, I have never needed any additional help each time I have used this lovely dildo over the past two weeks. Of course, this may not be the same for everyone, but the joy of such a smooth, highly polished material, is that you can use any of your favourite water-based, oil, or silicone lubricants, should you feel the need. But honestly the shaft and bulbs of the Farringdon are so wonderfully smooth that there is none of the “drag” or texture that I would feel with even the smoothest of my glass dildos.

And that weighty-feel is most certainly not only when you hold it in your hand . . . but internally as well . . . it really does feel heavenly with the larger single bulb stimulating me in just the right spot, especially when I tense and “grip” myself against it . . . or when lying down flat on my tummy. Ooohh!!!

The other, beaded half of the Farringdon, gives some lovely feelings as well. I love laying back and having the stem slowly stroked in-and-out, slowly building up the speed and tempo, and feeling those bulbs pulling and rubbing and fucking against me. I usually, though not always, need clittoral stimulation to bring me to complete orgasm and using the Farringdon in this way with a vibrating wand, or hubby attending to my clit, has given some shuddering, ecstatic, moments since first breaking the Crowned Jewels red-wax seal.

And as well it’s super-smoothness, the other delightful thing I love about my Farringdon is that the titanium is just wonderful for “temperature play”. It feels naturally cold against ones skin anyway at first, but quite quickly adjusts and warms to my body temperature after a few moments. But I’ve found that fun “cold chill” can be prolonged . . . or enhanced if you like . . . by holding it under running cold water for a few minutes.  I’m not advocating, by the way, putting the Farringdon in the freezer, or even the fridge, as that might well be dangerous and getting “freezer-burns” on one’s delicate bits would not be sensible at all.
But if, like me, you do enjoy an occasional cold “tingle” against your lips, (or you may prefer warm-water instead!) then this titanium dildo is the ideal toy to play with.

crownedjewelshand2

Now, as I’ve mentioned, I enjoy both ends of this dildo for vaginal play . . . but as you will see from looking again at my pictures, The Farringdon Titanium Dildo is also perfectly shaped for anal insertion.

I have to be in the right frame of mind, to enjoy anal play . . . but I can tell you that on the occasions I have tried (and yes, with a thin coating of lubricant for this style of entry!) those graduating bulbs have given wonderfully intense stimulation and pleasure (again combined, with that necessary attention for me to my front bits, with my wand and helping fingers!!!)

I should point-out that as the Farringdon is so slippery smooth and seems to glide so quickly and easily inside . . . and that it does not have a wide base or stopper . . . so you must ensure that you only allow one half of the length (so 4 inches) as the maximum insertable length. But as the joy of this dildo is the sliding in-and-out, from whatever point of entry, it is quite easy for you . . . or your partner . . . to remember to keep a firm hold on one end!!!

And I will certainly be keeping a firm hold on my Farringdon . . . and often!!!

The Farringdon, like all of the Crowned Jewels range of luxury dildos, anal plugs, cock rings, probes, kegel eggs, pleasure balls and more, is handcrafted in the United Kingdom. Handcrafted to the extent that they actually offer a bespoke design service which means you can have a personal message engraved on your toy, or perhaps gemstones added to make your item even more special and luxurious.

Of course luxury and quality has a value, and whilst you will certainly find cheaper alternatives online, The Farringdon Titanium Dildo is the highest quality item of its type that I have ever experienced, and I would urge you to make Crowned Jewels the very next place you “click to“.

Modesty Ablaze reviews the Noir Handmade Wet Look Skirt from @UberKinky

noirhandmade4

We all enjoy having new additions to our wardrobes occasionally don’t we . . . well, actually not just occasionally for me, I enjoy new additions all the time!!!

Because new clothes always make one feel special, and sexy . . . and this lovely new Noir Handmade Wet Look Skirt certainly makes me feel like that, and has quickly become one of my favourites when opening my wardrobe for a kinky evening out.

noirhandmade3

It arrived from my favourite on-line Kink store, Uberkinky, a few weeks ago and I was instantly captivated by the naughty, open-back look . . . and feel . . . as I slid it on.   It felt just lovely, sexy and clingy without being tight or uncomfortable. In fact the fit was absolutely perfect and the front zip fastening makes it so quick and simple to put on . . . and to take off  LOL!!!

The double-stitched shiny PVC waistband is 2¼ inches wide and adds a stylish look to the trim, whilst the skirt itself is made from that lovely polyester-spandex-type material which seems to just stretch and cling in all the right places, complimenting one’s curves rather than squeezing them tightly and making my bumps too obvious. I like wearing tight rubber and latex, but often feel my curves are being pushed and squeezed out of shape. But this skirt just feels so comfortable and shapely to wear and I’ve always, ALWAYS got such lovely comments whenever I’ve worn it.

But, of course, a lot of those lovely comments are about the look when I turn-around because, this Noir Handmade Wet Look Skirt has the most wonderfully naughty open-back to show off one’s bottom. The open-cut shape just seems to perfectly accommodate my cheeks. It’s almost as though that “handmade” feature was in fact made-to-measure . . . but I’m sure that’s just because of the way the material stretches and clings so naturally.

noirhandmade5

The skirt arrives with the three removeable straps attached of course. They are secured in place with popper studs on each side of the perfectly hemmed “openness”. The straps are each 1¼ inches wide . . . my “modesty straps” I call them . . . and are spaced equally apart to allow for teasing and tantalising glimpses of lots of one’s bare bottom. And, should you decide to display even more bare skin, as I have on the several occasions I’ve worn them out, the straps are easily and effortlessly detached from their studs.

noirhandmade7

I’ve started my evening with the straps on, and then as I’ve become a little more daring (naughty???), I’ve discretely removed them and popped them into my handbag. Perhaps starting out by leaving just the middle one attached . . . and then, later in the evening, removing that one too!

noirhandmade6

And I can certainly tell you I’ve then had even more attention . . . and nice comments . . . as the evening has gone on!!!

The whole skirt is so lovely and light, that it can be easily folded and carried in your bag if you’re travelling to a club or event and planning to change on arrival, and you prefer not to wear it on the way there!

The skirt is supplied with a complete spare set of studs, and another thoughtful and lovely touch, are the hanger-loops stitched into the PVC waistband. In fact the quality and whole “feel” of this lovely skirt is just wonderful, and the sizing chart . . . available from the product-link below . . . offers one of the most comprehensive and descriptive size ranges I’ve ever come across.

So, needless to say, I shall definitely be adding more from the Noir Handmade range. And if you are looking for some new stylish, sexy . . . and kinky . . . apparel for yourself, or your kinky partner in fact, . . . I suggest you make the Noir Handmade page at Uberkinky >here< your very next click!!!

Pros: Stylish, sexy, slinky, sexy, kinky. Lovely to feel and wear, curve-hugging but in just the “right” way. Lovely quality stitching. Oh . . . and did I say “sexy”!!!
Cons: I’ve been having too much fun wearing it to notice any.
Material: Polyester Spandex (elastane) skirt with PVC trim and detail.
Sizing: Available from X-Small to 10XL (see the sizing chart from the product link below!).
Colour: Black.
After-care: Handwash separately in cold water.

Modesty Ablaze reviews the “Lust Silicone Wand” from pinkbob.com

modestyablazelustwand2

I’m not usually one for “love at first touch” . . . well at least not for my toys! Normally I find it takes me several sessions, over the course of several days, or even weeks, to discover whether I really enjoy a new toy . . . or not, as the case may be. This is particularly true for new vibrating or insertable toys.

But . . . I am absolutely delighted to tell you that was not the case for the PinkBob Lust Silicone Rechargeable Wand!

Because this is, quite simply, the most wonderful . . . and powerful . . . vibrating cordless-wand I have ever experienced!!!

But first things first . . . let me start, where I should, at the very beginning . . .

modestyablazelustwand1

Perhaps because of it’s light pinky colour, and possibly the criss-cross patterns on the handle, it made me think of an ice-cream cone when I first removed The Lust from it’s box. All light and fluffy . . . it looked rather “sweet and innocent” . . . possibly playful but probably quite ineffectual for a properly fulfilling play session I thought to myself.

I liked the lovely smooth silicone surface and the lightness of it in my hand though . . . so I was intrigued and curious as I plugged in the supplied USB charging cable for the first time.

PinkB.O.B.’s items are always nicely, and tastefully, packaged and The Lust comes in a stiff white cardboard box with the PinkB.O.B. logo itself, and a picture of the Lust on the reverse of the box, printed in a shiny glossy and slightly raised process. Hubby informs me this is called “Spot UV Laminating” . . . but I just know that it looks and “feels” nice. And I like it !!!

Inside the box the wand is inserted within it’s own nice silky draw-string bag which just adds to the classy and stylish feel of The Lust. And, being rechargeable, a USB cable and power plug is also supplied within the box.

modestyablazelustwand3The cable-prong pushes into a tiny hole in the base of the handle and being an American company (more on that below) the actual mains power plug is of the North American flat, two-pronged type.

But as it is a USB-cable it just simply detaches from the plug and can be used with any European USB charging plug, or can be easily plugged-into one’s computer . . . though I’d never be able to concentrate on working on my computer with the Lust sitting there next to me in full view!!!

The Lust takes around an hour to fully charge with the power button glowing red whilst charging and then going out when ready for play.

It is wonderfully light and the lovely silicone feel of the whole handle (save for an inch or so of plastic at the base) makes it easy to hold and operate. The handle tapers gently from a diameter of just over an inch or so at the bottom to about one and three quarters of an inch at the neck (about 5½ inches circumference).

modestyablazelustwand5This neck (about 2 cm in height and 2.5 cm in diameter) is slightly flexible so that the head of the Lust can gently tilt against one during use, to help achieve that “perfect angle”.

As you can see from my photos here, the head itself extends
2 inches (5cm) above the neck with a sort-of-domed top. The circumference here is also about 5½ inches, or just over 1½ inches in diameter . . . and it is absolutely LOVELY !!!

The overall length of the Lust from the tip of the base to the top of the head is 7¾ inches and, as I’ve already mentioned, is actually surprisingly light to hold in the palm of one’s hand . . . especially for the power it generates.

In fact it is so light, that to say I was surprised with the power of it’s vibrations would be a huge, huge understatement. Even when I first pushed the power button I could sense that it had quite a strong buzz . . . BUT it wasn’t until I slid it down over my lips that it’s true power, and intensity, truly hit me . . . and then . . . then I knew . . . I was in love!!!

So if clittoral-stimulus does it for you then look no further . . . because, as I said at the beginning, this is simply the most powerful cordless I have ever had the pleasure of playing with. And I mean PLEASURE . . . gasping, turning and squirming . . . pleasure.

modestyablazelustwand4

And this amazing pleasure is selected from three subtle, touch-sensitive buttons, located halfway up the handle of The Lust.  The power button turns the vibrations on and off, the top button is used to select slightly different levels of vibration speed, and the middle, pulse, button gives some rather surprising and fun variety of pulsing and throbbing sensations. But . . . actually . . . I personally prefer just the single-continuous standard vibration, adjusting the sensation for myself by sliding it up and down, and around and over, different parts of my lips and clit. Lifting it off for a few seconds and then sliding it down again. Pushing it harder against me . . . then lifting it away to just barely caressing my skin. Tilting it back and forth in different angles and even . . . and I know PinkB.O.B. would probably say I shouldn’t be doing this . . . just pushing that lovely smooth head gently inside me. Not far of course . . . but just enough, to turn that intensity into a throbbing, shuddering, explosion. It does it to me every time!!! . . . But, as I say, PinkB.O.B. would probably not recommend it’s use in this way, and in fact, the accompanying little** leaflet actually does say “please be advised not to press the wand tightly to your body as you could risk bending and damaging the head supporter” . . . so, do be warned. But, I just couldn’t resist !!!

And I also couldn’t resist using The Lust again . . . and again . . . several-times-over on that first evening. AND lots and lots of times since. In fact over the past few weeks it has been living under my pillow instead of being packed-away in my toy drawer as all my other toys normally would be.

However, I know I will have to try to exercise more will-power and deny myself The Lust more often though. Too much of something isn’t good for you . . . it’s just that I can’t help it, whenever I’m feeling horny and in need of a quick-release, out it comes.

Anyway, before I get carried away thinking about it again, please do scroll through my summary points below for the important technical details on this lovely, lovely toy.

The Lust Silicone Wand:
Modesty Rating:
 10 out of 10
Pros: Lovely smooth silicone feel. Light and easy to hold. And the most powerful vibrations for a cordless wand I have ever felt.
Cons: **You know what my only complaint is? It’s that the accompanying instruction leaflet is SO small that, for a “mature lady” such as myself, even with my reading glasses, I could barely read it. I had to sneak it onto the office photo-copier and enlarge it several times to make it legible.
Material: Lovely smooth silicone.
Measurements: Overall Length 7¾ inches; Diameter just over 1½ inches..
Vibrations: Several different pulsing modes, and subtle changes of vibration speeds.
Noise: Surprisingly Moderate for such powerful buzzing!!!
Colour: Pink, of course, but almost a subtle violet-pink.
Power: Rechargeable via USB, so no batteries required, nor those annoying fixed power cables which often seem to get caught-up in things at the worst possible moment!!!
Lube: Use with water-based lube only.
Waterproof: No.
After-care: Obviously always wash with warm soapy water after, and before, use. (I use anti-bacterial wipes as well!).

modestyablazelustwand6NB: As I mentioned earlier, PinkB.O.B. is an American company based in New Hampshire. However, I wanted to say especially for my European readers, please don’t let that put you off, because as well as shipping all over the world, I know that from all of my dealings with them throughout this year they have been simply delightful to correspond with. AND all of my parcels have actually arrived within a few days of despatch. AND, as they mention in the “About Us” section on their website “women play a large role at our company, from concepts to package designs!” So, there you go, what more encouragement do you need??? I recommend you visit . . . and indulge in some “Lust” as quickly as you possibly can.

Modesty Ablaze reviews the “Button Butt Plug Silicone Anal Vibrator” at Sh!

modestyablazesh3

I’ve always been intrigued and fascinated by butt plugs . . . sometimes just from the point of view of liking how they look and feel . . . and by “feel”, I mean to hold in one’s hand, not necessarily to “feel” inside one’s bottom.

It’s not something I always desire . . . and certainly not something I can immediately plunge straight into . . . because, for actual insertion and play, I do have to be absolutely in the right mood. But although I do have my favourite anal toys . . . and my favourite anal situations . . . I do still like to try something new occasionally. And, normally, to try those new toys several times over a period of time. So I was thrilled to have the opportunity to try the Button Butt Plug Silicone Anal Vibrator from the wonderful ladies at Sh! recently.

I’ve had my Button Plug for several weeks now and am happy to say that, after some initial doubts as to whether I would enjoy playing with it more than once, I’m now actually finding it rather a lot of fun!!!

But, first things first . . .

modestyablazesh2As always with Sh!, the packaging is simple and subtle and nicely packaged in a white laminated cardboard box with the purple Sh! logo stylishly printed on the lid. Now I know lots of people prefer their toys to always be black, but I often like mine to be different colours, so wasn’t surprised, or disappointed, on lifting the lid to discover that their Button Butt Plug is in the Sh! signature purple as well.

Sweetly nestled on a bed of black satiny fabric, my first impression of the Button was that it looked rather like a large baby’s dummy. But as soon as I lifted it out of the box my thoughts immediately turned to it’s real purpose . . . as I just loved the feel of the smooth, silky, silicone which it is made of.

The button, or “plug”, of the toy is almost perfectly round . . . 33mm diameter in fact and attached to the base of the plug by a short neck of approximately half an inch . . . which I suppose you could say makes the insertable length just under one and a half inches. So those rather “modest” dimensions . . . if you will excuse the pun . . . make this an ideal plug if you are a “beginner” or reasonably new to anal play. (Sh! describe the Button as a “small silicone vibrating butt plug”).

The neck then spreads to the rather spherical-shaped base, which at two and a half inches wide, makes for a perfect stopper . . . cupping as it does between one’s cheeks and safely holding everything in place**.

modestyablazesh8The vibrating element of the Button Butt Plug is achieved with a firm plastic bullet which is inserted into the shaft of the plug. This bullet is 55mm in length and 17mm in diameter and is powered by three cylindrical LR44 batteries which are supplied with, and already inserted into the bullet. You will have to unscrew the top, which extends by about 15mm from the base, and remove a paper cap which breaks the contact. I must admit that I found this rather fiddly to manage at first as it is so firmly embedded within the silicone body. And once I did finally manage to get the vibrations to start I was a little under-whelmed. The vibrations are single-speed, and not particularly strong, and I found the push switch to turn on and off, didn’t always seem to respond . . . and in fact occasionally during use it seemed to turn itself off until I twisted the top to get it back on again, which was distracting or annoying in varying degrees in that first, initial, play session. But perhaps it is just a case of the connectors on my particular button were not quite correctly aligned.

And, of course, as it is completely removable, the button can be easily used for clittoral or nipple stimulation as well . . . though again the buzzing is not quite strong enough for me to enjoy in that way. But to be honest, I always find “inside” vibrations down there more of a distraction and annoyance anyway, even with much more powerful vibrations than this Button Plug achieves. So I quickly disregarded that aspect for playtime with this particular toy. But that is just me and, as we are all different, I’m sure for some of you, the mild and consistent buzzing from this bullet, will be particularly arousing wherever it is used.

modestyablazesh7However, although I’m not a great fan of the bullet, what I have come to enjoy is the lovely comforting shape (back to the baby’s dummy) of the plug itself.

As with all anal toys you will need to apply a liberal coating of (water-based in this instance) lubricant. The thoughtful ladies at Sh! have included a nice sachet of their own “Pure” brand lube with the box, just for that very purpose. As well as coating the plug itself, I also always pre-finger lube myself . . . or have my partner “help” me with that with their own fingers . . . before gently inserting anything into my bottom.

And . . . provided I’m in that right mood that I earlier mentioned . . . and despite not having a longer, more tapered point like some of my other anal plugs, this button is surprisingly easy to slip in. Of course, it’s only common sense to be slow and gentle (for both insertion and removal), but oohh, it does then feel quite lovely . . . and quite “full-filling” if you know what I mean.

Especially, for me at least, for double-penetration play . . . whether with one’s lover, or a vaginal toy . . . because the Buttons size and unobtrusive shape means it doesn’t get in the way, even during a quite active play session. And that is why . . . as I mentioned earlier . . . that I have been finding it a lot of fun and I’m sure it will be one of my favourite toys for whenever I’m in “that” sort of mood in the future.

The Button Butt Plug Silicone Anal Vibrator was sent to me, free-of-charge,  for an honest and un-biased review.

The Modesty Rider:
I realise, of course, that there are already thousands of long-established Sex Toy Reviewers and Review sites . . . most of whom will be far more adept at explaining all the technical details and specifications of things. But for me, sexy clothes and lingerie, sexy toys . . . and even sexy books . . . are all about adding a little fun and excitement to things. So that is how I tend to approach my reviews and videos!!! Just to explain “how it was for me” in a fun, and light-hearted, way without taking things too seriously! Chances are that if something makes me giggle and tingle and feel good, it will score higher on my Modesty Rating.
