The Goddess was sent to me by Tantus in exchange for an honest and impartial product review which by no means changes my thoughts on the item.
Another dildo from my shortlist that Tantus very kindly sent me to review. I chose the Goddess as I love a good bit of texture but before my array of goodies arrived from Tantus, I hadn't had the opportunity to try any of their dildos and due to this, I didn't want to overdo it, so I chose the Goddess as it's not overly textured but would still have enough ripples and swirls to probably show me a good time.
Now with most Tantus products, there is absolutely nothing to hide when it comes to their packaging, the item that you are about to play with is right there in plain sight thanks to the very minimalist packaging, which also helps when it comes to recycling the box. #Eco-Nerd. On the back of the box there is some additional info on some of the other product ranges that Tantus has to offer, from strap on harnesses to sensation play toys.
When I opened up the box that contained the Goddess, I must the greedy mare in me did think "is that it?" which is when I stopped myself as I have a bit of a nasty habit of thinking that every single dildo I have should be confused with a doorstop! I then decided that I should stop judging it as it would probably feel very nice once lubed up and inside me.
I received the Goddess in the Purple Haze colour but it is also available in the Pearl White colour as well. I love the pearlescent lilac colour that this dildo has as it accentuates the swirls and ripples of the dildo's shaft in certain lights. Now the Goddess is a single density silicone dildo and is made from Tantus' own formula of Premium Silicone, meaning that it has a firm but flexible feel to it which came in handy and we'll get to that bit later. The Goddess also comes with a waterproof bullet vibe that is also supplied with batteries so you're ready to go as soon as you take it out of the box. The Goddess has a hole for the bullet which allows it to sit in the lower part of the shaft. The bullet itself has 3 functions to give you a bit of variety. Of course you don't necessarily need to use the bullet with the Goddess if you don't fancy it, the choice is yours.
The Goddess' shaft has 3 rather organic and subtle looking ridges leading up to the head of the dildo with swirls on the other side, so if you like a bit of texture but aren't majorly into it unlike myself then at least you have some playing options.
How it Felt
As I have mentioned before, my OH likes to get involved when it comes to my dildo play and there have been the odd occasions where a dildo has worked out better when I solely used it rather than he controlled it so we were hoping that we weren't going to experience that again. So hoping for the best, we lubed up the Goddess with a decent water based lube; popped the bullet vibe into the shaft (pop some lube onto the bullet for easier insertion and removal - trust me) and prepared to see how we got on. If you are familiar with my reviews, you'll know that I love girthy and textured dildos; whilst the Goddess doesn't have the girthiest diameter, it has those beautiful ridges.
Once appropriately lubed up, the Goddess was easily inserted and the head and the ridges gave me a delicious bumpy "popping" sensation but I did miss the filling sensation that I tend to experience from my other dildos in my collection especially when initially inserted. I wouldn't say that this disappointed me at all, I'm just used to larger and thicker toys. When thrusted, the texture on the Goddess comes into its own as the ridges and the head stimulated my vaginal opening quite nicely. Team that up with the bullet vibe which helps to add that extra dimension of stimulation as the vibrations travel up most of the shaft and that combined with the ridges could help to stimulate your G-Spot if you're lucky to be able to stimulated in that area (sadly I'm not one of those individuals).
When I used the Goddess in my solo play; I ditched the bullet vibe from the shaft and applied that directly to my clit whilst I rode the Goddess and I would say that this was how I got the most pleasure and enjoyment out of the dildo. When ridden, you get to experience all the texture more strongly which makes you appreciate this dildo all the more and I have to admit that by using it in this way, I forgot that it didn't have the widest diameter in the world.
But did all the ridges and swirls enable me to have that elusive G- Spot orgasm that I have been questing for? Sadly not, I'm starting to think that I may perhaps never experience G-Spot stim. But hey 'spose that won't stop me in trying my damndest!
So whilst I did get several orgasms, it wasn't solely derived from the Goddess alone, there always had to be some form of clitoral stimulation whether it was from the bullet vibe used separately or from the OH's finger. Oh well, the quest goes on!
Care and Storage
The Goddess is a glossy form of silicone so therefore is a lint magnet like most silicone toys are, so I always wash it with an antimicrobial cleaner before and after use as no one wants dust and hair entering their vag. Should you not have cleaner to hand, you can pop this through the dishwasher separately of course, or you can boil it or clean it with a mild bleach solution. Allow it air dry or at least dry it with a lint free cloth or else your gonna be applying lint directly onto its surface.
Aside from that, its silicone. It's an incredibly stable material so you can pop it into your toy box and leave it there. Nothing to it really. The only think I would say to do is to remove the batteries from the bullet as leaving them in there will encourage them to run down more quickly.
Overall I was fairly happy with the Goddess, it surprised me in that I was able to enjoy it despite it being very different from my usual choice of toy. If you like a subtly textured toy that offer versatility, then you're on to a winner here. If however you want either masses of texture and a bigger size or you prefer a smooth surfaced toy, then you may want to reconsider. However if this does sound like you, Tantus do offer a wide range of dildos to suit pretty much everyone out there.
The fact that the Goddess is 100% body safe and offer me a more soft and subtle type of pleasure has endeared me to it the more I have used it and I would certainly recommend it.

The Bootylicious Medium Plug was sent to me by So Divine in exchange for an honest and impartial product review which by no means changes my thoughts on the item.
After the rousing success of the trio of products I initially received from So Divine, I was chuffed to bits when Sophie, their PR rep got back in touch to ask if I wanted to try out and review either of their new butt plugs that had just been released. Needless to say I was so on board with this that I replied pretty quickly to say that I was keen and could I try out the medium sized plug.
If somehow you have not come across So Divine and their products; where have you been!? They are a new(ish) company that produces quality yet affordable sex toys without compromising on their materials - no phthalates or unstable materials here!
The Cush O2 was sent to me by Tantus in exchange for an honest and impartial product review which by no means changes my thoughts on the item.
Another item that Tantus kindly supplied to me from the shortlist I had somehow managed to come up with when they kindly asked which toys I would like to review. I had heard many good things about these dual density dildos and as I am a firm believer that bigger and thicker is better when it comes to dildos, I opted for the Cush O2.
A beautiful Magic Wand sent to me by So Divine in exchange for an honest and impartial product review.
This will be the third installment of my So Divine experience and I feel that I may have saved the best 'til last with the Wicked Game Magic Wand. As this item seems to offer a lot of bang for your buck, I felt that this is going to be one heck of a diverse product that will come in handy; and not just for orgasmic purposes!
So Divine are a relatively new company to the sex toy market but despite their newness, they are coming on strong with a catalogue of damn good products and as new products seem to be added regularly, I really do think that they are a company to watch. Probably the best aspect of So Divine's ethos is that they want to bring sexual pleasure out in the open and dispel the stigma surrounding sex toys, not to mention that they only use body safe materials, which is damn fantastic as no one wants horrid unstable chemicals leeching out of their toys and into their body!
A fantastic vibe that's very pretty in pink provided to me by So Divine in exchange for an honest and impartial product review.
For those that may have missed my previous review of one of their products , So Divine are new kids on the block when it comes to the sex toy market but they have done remarkably well in the short time that they have been around. Unlike some larger companies that are out there, they haven't started out by using crappy and unstable materials in their toys. Aside from one cock ring, all of their products are comprised of ABS plastic or ABS plastic and silicone. Which if you are new to sex toys, no horrid and potentially harmful chemicals are going to leach into your body from the toy over time as is the case which many a beginners toy.
A delightful little bullet vibe provided to me by So Divine in exchange for an honest and impartial product review.
I was pleasantly surprised when after the UK August Bank Holiday I received an email from Sophie, one of So Divine's PR representatives introducing the So Divine brand to me and enquiring as to whether I wanted to review some of the products that So Divine have to offer. Needless to say after having a rather quiet 2016 here on the blog due to countless catastrophes (I think 2016 sucked for everyone TBH) I was keen to accept and to pull my big girl blogger pants up and get back to work. I was spoilt for choice with So Divine and so replied back with my choices back to Sophie and was surprised to see that I had received all of my choices, with the first being the Je T'Aime Silky Touch Vibrator.
Did he live up to his name?
When I first spotted the Mystim Terrific Truman on sale, I was instantly hooked as it looked like it would be a pretty decently sized vibe not to mention being made from body safe silicone and ABS plastic. Usually this vibe which comes in Pink, Purple of Blue retails for around £70-£80 so when I saw that it was being offered for £15, I decided that it was fate and I needed to add this to my ever growing collection of toys.
The Satisfyer Pro Penguin & Satisfyer 2 were supplied to me by the lovely Satisfyer team in return for an honest and impartial product review.
When the Satisfyer team dropped me an email to ask if I would like to receive some of their latest models to test out and review, needless to say the answer was a resounding yes! Having never had the opportunity or the bank balance after bills to experience this type of toy before I was absolutely thrilled at the prospect of finally being able to. I also had the chance to review the Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation - yay me!
The Satisfyer Pro 2 was supplied to me by the lovely Satisfyer team in return for an honest and impartial product review.
I was so stoked when the Satisfyer team got in touch with me to enquire as to whether I would be interested in reviewing some of their latest products in exchange for a review. Needless to say I replied with a polite but wholehearted yes! All communications that I received from the Satisfyer team were always prompt and polite.
For those of you who don't know Satisfyer is the main competitor to Womanizer and these guys seem to battle it out when it comes to pressure wave / vacuum clit stim toys.
The idea behind the design is to send pulsating waves of pressure to your clit once it's surrounded by the silicone head and the very mild vacuum that is created helps to encourage blood flow. In essence its contactless stimulation, very unlike the way typical clitoral stim vibrators work with sending vibrations directly onto your clit. So for those of you who can find typical vibrators perhaps a tad too much stimulation, this could be the one for you.
Looking for something a little more curvy?
The OH & I happened to pick this sexy looking G-Spot vibe when we were out in Southampton for the day and happened to pass Ann Summers who were having a sale. I say we "happened to pass" however seeing as pretty much most of my underwear comes from there I suppose it was more of a case of that we made a bee-line to Ann Summers!
Anyway whilst we were in the store we strolled over to the toys and the very cheerful sales assistant asked us if we were looking for anything specific, which we weren't as we had just bought our new dildo from Bad Dragon! Anyway we clapped eyes on the Moregasm Move G-Spot vibe and as it was half price, we thought we'd give it a go.
Supplied to me from the lovely people from Dewci Box in return for an honest and impartial review.
Store - Dewci Box
Price - Varies
So being still fairly new to the reviewing business I was absolutely over the moon when Dewci Box got in touch with me and asked if I would be interested in receiving one of their subscription boxes in exchange for an honest and impartial review. I was so excited everyone in the office with me at the time (as I was at work), knew about it.
Did I care; er no! Needless to say I accepted in an instant. I must admit, I was extremely curious as to what I would be sent as I do have a fairly picky nature and I was perhaps a little worried that my pickiness would let me down here.
He's Big. He's Beautiful. He Glows in the Dark!
This is my most recent dildo to join my collection to date after stressing to the OH that most of the girthy toys that are readily available are either ridiculously long or only come in black, or are both long and black which in my personal opinion is the worst combination ever! You may wonder what I have against black toys and to be honest even I'm not sure; the colour just puts me right off.
One of my favourite glass dildos - because everyone should have one!
I've had this glass dildo for a while now; probably coming up for a year or so. I was sent an offer from Lovehoney advertising that this particular dildo was on offer and as soon as I saw the photo, that was it; I was smitten with it. I mean it looks so damn pretty! I had been pondering about whether to get a glass dildo at the time, so the email containing the offer was great timing and clinched it for me.
My most favourite and most satisfying dildo that I have bought to date. This dildo is definitely not for the faint of heart!
After much coaxing from my other half who loves using larger and girthier toys on me and seeing me use them on myself, we decided to take the plunge and buy this whopper of a dildo from Lovehoney. As usual delivery was extremely fast and discreet as I have come to expect from them.
As this is my very first review, I only thought it would be appropriate to review the very first sex toy I bought (yes I still have it).
Upon arrival after a very speedy delivery from Bondara, I was pleasantly surprised to find that my very first purchase was not the horrifying and sleazy purchase that I had always envisioned sex toys to be. This little gem was actually the complete polar opposite! The pink colour did take me aback a bit as I'm definitely not what you would call girly and the photo does look a lot more purple thank pink but that was just me trying to avoid pink coloured things. The twist base has two rows of diamantes which help to glam up this classic style vibe.
