The Avant D4 was supplied to me by Peepshow Toys in exchange for an honest and impartial product review which by no means changes my thoughts on the item.
I’d been admiring Peepshow Toys for a while as they are a no compromise store that only stock body safe sex toys! Hurray a store that gets it!! If you don’t know about Peepshow Toys, you really oughta. They are a US based company that seriously care about what toys their customers can buy. There are no dodgy jelly toys here! They are also very reasonably priced and are expanding their body safe stock lines all the time. Definitely a store to bear in mind when you’re on the hunt for a new toy! After contact with them, they very kindly sent me the artisanal Avant D4 to road test and to dish out my opinion on it.
Once I had the opportunity to open my Avant D4 by Blush Novelties once I had returned home from work, the first thing I noticed was the colour scheme. Wow! The two different shades of pink combined with the black sections really makes this dildo stand out from the crowd. The other thing that you notice when holding the D4 is that is made from silky silicone that is firm yet flexible making its curves and ridges a tempting prospect. Finally the third thing that is instantly noticeable is the deep suction cup located at the base of this jazzy dildo.
We should all know by now that I love girth, and this is what the D4 is meant to promise. Now holding the D4 in my hand, I initially did not get this impression but appearances can be deceiving as I have been pleasantly surprised before. However what I was intrigued about straight off the bat was the curves and ridges that this modern dildo has to offer. Although not packed with texture, the ridge just below the head is what was tempting me the most as many dildos that I already own have a ridge here and it is this type of ridge that usually gives me the delicious "pop" sensation when withdrawing almost fully only to have the dildo thrust back in again.
To briefly cover the packaging that the D4 comes in; it is fairly minimal with only the smallest amount of plastic. Most of it is card/paper based so most of the packaging can be recycled. The front of the box has the clear plastic window where you can view the D4 in all of its glorious colour as it sits in its plastic moulding. On one side you have the main features of this dildo which include; that each dildo is individually handcrafted, pthalate free and harness compatible. On the other side is the range name AVANT in pink to black fade colouring. The reverse of the box is where the main bulk of the information is kept. This plethora of information includes a brief description of the D4 and how it is aimed for people who love girth (Yay that's me!) and how all Avant dildos are made from platinum cured silicone and that there is a deep and powerful suction cup to the base.
How it Felt
Usually I would incorporate some couples time in my testing of toys as my guy likes to be involved with my blog as much as possible. However from a mix of not feeling great lately as well as a bit of an urge to keep this beauty all to myself, he missed out. So this is all from my own solo perspective.
As I said above, I was intrigued by the curves and ridges as well as curiosity as to whether the D4 would satisfy me in the girth department, so once I was thoroughly in the mood and with some excited trepidation I lubed up this striped spectacle of a dildo and plunged on in to testing. Yes the pun was definitely intended ;)
The first few times I used the D4 I had to try out the suction cup at the base because it is a beast! It's really deep and because of this it has some serious staying power so you can rest assured that it's not gonna come off whilst you're in the middle of a good rhythm to the point where I did think "Umm. Am I gonna be able to get this off?"
I don't really have a lot of surfaces at home where I could stick this to as I have far too much crap in our bedroom and lounge. So I had to improvise and grab the biggest, heaviest hardback book I could find, attach it to that and then carefully lower myself on to the D4 and once I was in place, I began to ride it as cautiously as possible. Although caution soon went out of the window. Somehow this rough and ready approach managed to work and despite having small and chunky legs I was able to get up a good rhythm and I was able to experience all the curves and ridges that the description on the box promised.
"What about the girth?" I here you ask. Well although not the thickest dildo I have used in sometime I wasn't disappointed either. It has enough girth to satisfy the craving of me being stretched and filled that I so love but it does so without overdoing it. The broad head certainly started things off well and that ridge that I spoke of earlier created by the dildo having such a broad head did indeed create a nice pop, especially when the D4 was quickly thrusted inwards. Down along the shaft there then is a swell of girth before a short respite before towards the base there is the thicker portion which really stretches and pushes you open. Suffice it to say that I thoroughly enjoyed riding the D4; especially when teamed up with one of my favourite vibrators. *Shivers at the memory of the orgasms*
When using the D4 in a laid down position I got to enjoy all of the above but at a more relaxed pace as I tend to get a little carried away when going for a ride. I would possibly say that I even enjoyed holding on to the D4 and slowly thrusting it in and out more than riding it (probably due to the absence of leg burn). I found I was able to focus on the delectable feeling of being almost completely filled by the ridges and the swells and curves that this ridiculously pretty dildo has to offer.
Care and Storage
Phew! After all that, I guess I had better let you know I look after mine.
Well I always wash my toys before and after use, using an antibacterial/antimicrobial foam wash for toys as well as using hot water. Being silicone, there are so many ways of keeping them hygienic; boiling, soaking them in a mild bleach solution, popping them in the dishwasher (not with your plates and mugs though). However I like to give them a good wash and either let them air dry or I'll pat them dry using a lint free cloth seeing as silicone attracts lint like nobody's business! Storage wise; again I keep it simple, I store my D4 along with all my Tantus dildos in my toy box well away from all more spiky and kinky implements which could damage the dildo.
I don't think I can find anything to whinge about here with the D4. It has a striking colour scheme without being garish, its girthy without being unrealistic, it has satisfying undulations to its design and its made from silicone which is body safe and won't cause you any issues.
If you're after a dildo that can satisfy you whether you sit on it, hold onto it, use it in a harness whilst looking good doing it, I heartily recommend you giving the Avant D4 a go. I'm pretty sure you'll love it as much as I have!

The Satisfyer Pro Plus Vibration was sent to me by Satisfyer in exchange for an honest and impartial product review which by no means changes my thoughts on the item.
When the lovely team over at Satisfyer got in touch with me before Christmas to ask if I would be interested in reviewing their newest additions to their range; it was a resounding yes from me! Seeing as how I loved the previous three toys they very kindly sent to me, I was keen to see what they had come up with this time. Just after Christmas and New Year I received a lovely package all the way from Germany with the three new models for me to test and review as well as duplicates to either give to friends and family or to run giveaways on my blog.
The Icicles No. 24 was sent to me by Too Timid in exchange for an honest and impartial product review which by no means changes my thoughts on the item.
When Too Timid got in touch with me and asked if I wished to review any of their items from their site, I was elated. Much of the items that I have come to review have been from contact that I have previously initiated. So for a US based company to reach out to me off of their own back was pretty damn cool of them and a huge boost to my self esteem. For those of you who have not heard of Too Timid, they are an online retailer based in the US that have been offering sex toys and other sexual well-being products since 2000 so they've been around for a fair bit which is a good indicator that they'll probably be here to stay for a long time.
I chose the Icicles No.24 and one other product which I'm not going to tell you about and ruin the surprise, you'll just have to wait for it! My contact at Too Timid was very helpful and sent me tracking links once the item had been shipped so I could monitor its progress as it made its way over the pond to my little space in the UK.
The Echo 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.
The final offering from the shortlist that Tantus very kindly sent me to review. I chose the Echo as I have always admired this dildo come vibrator from afar but have sadly never been able to get my hands on one for one reason or another. When it arrived, I was so full of nervous anticipation as to whether it would live up to my expectations.
The Atomic was sent to me by Rocks Off in exchange for an honest and impartial product review which by no means changes my thoughts on the item.
When Rocks Off got in touch with me back in late 2017 to offer me the choice of toys to review from their newly released ranges, I was totally stoked as I had almost forgotten filling out their bloggers form they had released earlier in the year. So from their range that they were offering, I opted for the Atomic and the Teaser (review coming soon).
The D6 Mini Vibrator was sent to me by OVO as I was selected as a winner for their weekly draw in winter 2017. This review is completely impartial and my winning of the item by no means changes my thoughts on it.
I entered the OVO contest on Instagram back late last year not expecting to win as to be honest I rarely win anything. In fact when I choose to have a go on the lottery the most I usually get is about one number, so let's just say that my hopes were not exactly high. However when OVO posted one Friday evening announcing the winner and that they had tagged me in on, I was totally blown away! You mean I actually won something!? Now having an F10 of theirs in my toy drawer, I was hoping that the D6 would be as pleasant to use as that one is.
The Let's Go Crazy Rabbit Vibrator 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.
When So Divine got in touch with me once again to offer me the chance to review one of their 2 new rabbit vibrators, I was absolutely thrilled as I have pretty much loved every product that they have sent to me so far. Needless to say I accepted with a lot of enthusiasm as So Divine seem to be going from strength to strength with each product they being out.
What caught my attention the most was the heating function that this rabbit has to offer; yes that's right, it heats up to 37-38°C in an effort to provide the user with a comfy and realistic experience. It's been a long time since I have used a rabbit and this one promised to be very different from my first rabbit which I bought years before I knew better regarding safe materials in sex toys so I was curious to see how the Let's Go Crazy would perform.
The Sona Cruise was sent to me by Lelo in exchange for an honest and impartial product review which by no means changes my thoughts on the item.
I was a little surprised when one of Lelo's PR reps got in touch with me as I don't often see their products being sent to reviewers. Now I know that Swedish luxury brand Lelo's recent selection in their choice of spokesperson has not been well received by the community and for very good reason and in conjunction with that choice came the less than well designed product, the Hex condom. However I was prepared to give the Sona Cruise a try as it had intrigued me and I thought that perhaps that Lelo were trying to make up for their past cock ups.
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.
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.
