The Patricia Parris Sweet Tickling Maid
Reviewed by 'Luckier'
In my review of the Pink Fleshlight in SHM Issue 1, I said
that 'I have tried a whole range of many different sex
toys, among them quite a few artificial vaginas, vibrating
and otherwise, semi realistic and not so realistic, so on
the occasions I have tried out yet another disappointing
new masturbator that was meant to be the next best
thing to a real live pussy, I usually ended up slinging it in
the bin' - and unfortunately, this was one of those that
got slung! For the record, the Patricia Parris Sweet Tickling
Maid did nothing for me whatsoever. Even though the
item is - as the box says - made from a material that is
nice and soft to touch, and has a nice feel to it, it's the
pussy and anal tunnels that let it down. If there are some
guys that feel the Fleshlight was slightly small and tight
to enter, then this one is more or less impossible. It's to
do with the scale - I'd say this is more like a Barbie Doll
version. The one thing in its favour, I guess, is the multispeed
vibrator that can be conveniently slotted into the
back of the pussy tunnel to give stimulating sensations
to your penis when you make entry, but in summary, this
toy is offering nothing new and it's not one that I would
recommend to you.

AnoVibe plus Anal Vibrator
Reviewed by 'Luckier'
There seem to be quiet a few anal vibrating
beads on the market these days for those
who are either experimenting with anal sex
or for those who have tried it out and are
now enjoying it on a regular basis. This is
actually the second of the anal vibrating
bead toys that I have used, and I must admit,
I found this one to be quite irresistible! It is
basically a wand of firm but flexible vibrating
anal beads, with a waterproof egg to provide
the power. In the online ads for this product,
it says 'try it once and you'll be hooked',
which is probably the best way to sum it up.
But if I was asked why I like this one so
much, I would say that this one is slightly
smaller in length than the other I have used
(not such a large base for batteries, as this
uses only one), and the beaded shaft is
slightly slimmer but contains the same
amount of beads. The pleasure beads
decrease in size towards the tip, which makes
it very comfortable for anal entry and
probing. The strong vibrating sensations with
this one are another bonus that, yes, will
make you want to leave it inside you as long
as possible. So I guess its true to say that just
because you have tried one toy that you
think does the trick perfectly, it is always
worth trying out another, even if the
comparisons are only subtle, they can still
make all the difference. For me, the AnoVibe
is the one that works best because of its size,
its strong vibrations, and its greater flexibility
to tease, stimulate and satisfy.
Square Bulbs Anal Vibrator
Reviewed by 'Luckier'
This is another anal toy that warrants
comparison to the one I reviewed in last
month's issue (the Beadazzled Anal Tool).
Although both toys are very similar and both
are as good as each other, the Beadazzled is
more suitable for beginners or for those who
want to find out whether they like anal
stimulation or not, while this one is better
suited for those who are now looking to get
Again the differences may be subtle but
without question, the Square Bulbs Anal
Vibrator has the edge for a number of
reasons. Its two individual vibrating and
rotating features (controlled by individual
controls) are altogether much stronger, and
although, it has the same kind of ribbed
beaded shaft and action as the Bedazzled, it
is bigger in size and because it is made from
a non-toxic anti-bacterial plastic (in sexy
black), this one has the advantage of
somehow working its way into your anal
entry more or less by itself, with an almost
unbelievable ability to squirm its way further
inside you for the deep and sensuous probing
you crave - which is ideal for anal sex. It's
probably because the multispeed vibrator
(with reversible rotation) is positioned at the
top of the ribbed shaft that it has this unique
ability. So, if you have already tried out the
Beadazzled and are now ready to go to the
next stage of anal stimulation and
excitement, I would recommend this one,
especially if you want your hands free for
masturbating your penis and genitals, which
for me, is always a must when you have a
toy like this working away anally, and doing
all that you want it to do to increase the
stimulation of your orgasm and ejaculation.
Certainly worth a try - see if it does to you
what it does for me, whether on your own, or
having it administered by your playmate!
Latex Mini Dress from the Sharon Sloane Latex Collection
This garment is not a 'sex toy' as such - but
certainly something to wear for playing
rather than, say, to the office... and it's very
much in keeping with our rubber/latex theme
in this issue.
Available in small, medium and large
sizes (for 8-10, 10-12 and 12-14 sizes
respectively), this shaped, figure-hugging
dress is one you'll need to shoe-horn yourself
into to look effective, even if over a totally
dry body (a dusting of the recommended
latex dressing aid may help) - and on that
basis, don't flatter yourself by ordering a
smaller size than your usual. Clingy and skintight
is basic, but even though the latex is
robustly stretchy, it won't look good if you're
struggling to get it on!
Once on, it feels good - and, I might
even venture to say, does a good job of
streamlining the contours (although if not
particularly well endowed in the breast
department, it can streamline them too...).
Not only did it feel slinky, but my companion
made all the right appreciative noises and
reactions in response.
Very simple in style
(probably the most basic in the range which
includes a short top, even shorter crop top,
asymmetric slashed swimsuit, plunge-necked
'erotic' dress, single-shoulder mini dress and
short negligee-style jacket)), the dress - and
all the other items - has a flat black finish.
For a real wet-look shine, the manufacturers
recommend using a silicon release agent -
the 'Super Shiner'.

Beginner's Strap-on for Him From the Fetish Fantasy Series
What a fantastic bit of kit as a starter for a
couple. In a close heterosexual relationship,
most men will have had their anus licked or
fingered by their partner. And, while,
not being in any way gay or bisexual,
will have yearned for a little
more penetration to hit the 'P'
spot. This product answers the question.We
asked a couple to review it.
He: 'We had played around before with
fingers and D's mini-vibes but this just felt so
different. I was being fucked but by the only
person I have ever loved. It was such a turnon.
We had a few drinks before we tried it, bit
the bullet and then just said "Let's have a
go." It was a totally new experience to me
but one that I want to repeat.'
She: 'I knew that J liked anal stimulation
and we'd even used ice cubes during fellatio,
but this was something different. The first
time we used it I felt a bit silly putting on
the harness, but once we got going, any
embarrassment just disappeared as he was
obviously in seventh heaven. I don't know
what the so-called 'P' spot is, but if it's
anything like I feel, then it must be good.
I also got really turned on myself, as I had
the experience of 'fucking' my lover. A new
feeling for me, and, I guess, many women.'
On the technical front, this is a strap-on
with a four-inch pliable dildo. But it also
comes complete with a tube of toy-cleaner, a
tube of personal lube, three interchangeable
'O' rings to fix larger dongs, if and when
required, and a mask to add to the frisson.
The suppliers tell us that 'It's flying off
the shelves' - and we'd definitely say it's
worth giving it a try.

Exotik - Waterproof Rabbit
This is a beautifully streamlined piece of kit.
Waterproof, with soft-touch controls for the
rotating main shaft and the rabbit, the pink
see-through gel-look casing reveals the
working columns of steel beads in the 23-cm
shaft and the vibrating bullet in the rabbit. It
needs three AAA batteries (not included), but
once you power it up you can take it through
the three speeds of rotation and vibration
(all you need - more gradations of speed a
superfluous luxury) - and it's impressively
smooth, powerful and quiet.
I tried it first in the bath - after all, it is
waterproof. It certainly lives up to the
manufacturer's claims of being powerful -
but as with any battery-powered implement,
there's a balance between the two functions.
If you ratchet the rabbit up to full power
then turn on the rotating action, the
vibration diminishes, and will continue to do
so if you increase the rotating power. I found
the best effects with a balance of full-power
rabbit vibration and one-third power
rotation. However, I would say that under
water, the tendency with the rotating action
is to make that nice bunny attention slip
sideways off the target!
It's the rabbit element which has
revolutionised vibrating toys, and beyond
doubt this is the best feature of the 'Exotik' -
and used on its own, it delivers a really
strong vibration that definitely did the
business for me. The rotation (three speeds,
clockwise or anti-clockwise) was an
interesting addition - but not 'the main
event' as far as I was concerned. Nice - but
I'm sure there are cheaper rabbits
available - but this one runs with a
reassuring, low hum and delivers a strong
level of power, along with the additional
bonus of being totally waterproof - and it
really is a pleasure to use!
The principle of this pinky gloop
is that the menthol additive
takes it a step up from
ordinary lubes, promising
a warming sensation and
a tingle as you apply it -
leading to 'stronger and
more intense orgasms'.
From reading to review
The Orgasmic Diet in
Issue 2, I can confirm
the basic theory that
anything that increases
the bloodflow to the
genital area is likely to
improve sensitivity and
intensify the experience
of sex - but I'm not
that this is what
Orgasm Gel does.
I found it had a
than warming effect, and that the sensation was, if
anything, slightly numbing - and it didn't
really make any difference overall.
As with any of these products, it's very
much down to a matter of taste - if you like
minty cool on your clit, go for it... but
irrespective of taste, I'd say that £6.95 (a
saving of £3 on the RRP), is quite a lot to pay
for something not dissimilar to that
underground psychic jelly that pervades the
New York sewers in Ghostbusters II. Perhaps
being mentholated it ought to be cool blue
or minty green... but I doubt that would
make any difference.
