Review: njoy Pure Wand

Ah, the Pure Wand. The Holy Grail of g-spot toys. Sexbloggers far and wide have heralded it’s magical, squirt-worthy properties. The many reviews that have already been written probably already adequately describe just how wonderful the Pure Wand is; nevertheless, I’m adding my perspective to the mix, hoping that it will enlighten at least a handful of people.

When Tickle offered to send me a Pure Wand to review, I actually cheered. I got it in the mail, hurriedly took it out of the package, and opened the trademark, elegant njoy black box with pink satin lining.

The Pure Wand was intimidating. It’s not enormous or anything like that, but c’mon. It’s 1.5lbs of steel. My first thought: you could probably kill someone if you clobbered them with it. My second: that hard, unyielding, heavy thing was meant for my pussy? The third: hmm, shiny steel is pretty sexy.

So it was intimidating, but in a very sexy sort of way.

For a while, I did nothing but open the box and take it out, admiring and feeling the weight. I have to admit, after hearing about the Pure Wand making women squirt, I worried a little about whether the Pure Wand would “work” on me or not. What if it didn’t?

Anyway, I finally got around to trying it out. I put down a towel, just in case. I dabbed on a few drops of lube – I didn’t need much with its smooth surface – and went to town.

The end with the small “ball” made for a good warm-up. It tickled, teased and tantalized my g-spot until my wrists began to ache. The large-ball-end was pretty heavy, and thrusting while holding that end for an extended amount of time is tiring.

I switched to the large-ball end. I thought it would be difficult for me to get it inside me, since I typically prefer small toys, but it slid in easily. And pressed against my g-spot firmly and insistently.

It was at this point that I experienced a strange sensation: I was overwhelmed with pleasure, but also felt like I needed to pee. I continued to thrust, but I was so distracted by the need-to-pee sensation that I knew there was no way I was going to come like that. So I copped out, held the Pure Wand still, and got myself off by rubbing my clit instead.

A quick Twit and Google search later revealed that the needing-to-pee sensation was a typical precursor to squirting. I’d have to get over the weirdness of it first, though. It’s not that I worry about peeing by accident, but I just associate needing to pee with, well, the toilet. Which I don’t find sexy at all.

Doesn’t it make you horny just looking at it?

For some reason, the first time was the only time I felt the peeing-sensation with the Pure Wand. So, the Pure Wand didn’t get me to squirt (it hasn’t yet, anyway), but that hardly matters, because it feels so damn good. After the first long wank session, I’ve gotten off with the Pure Wand in under five minutes almost every time, unless I make a conscious effort to hold out. I love the firm pressure against my gspot. I love the weight of it in my hand. I love pulling it out of me and feeling how hot it is after warming up to match my body temperature. I love how cool and sudden it feels slipping inside me. I love the physical and psychological thrill of having steel inside me.

The Pure Wand is the only toy that has made me moan aloud while jacking off. And every time I was trying out the Pure Wand, my Twitter feed was literally a flutter with <3s; just ask my Tweeps.

It also works very well as an anal toy. I wasn’t ready for the large-ball end, but the small-ball end feels great.

The Pure Wand does come with a bit of a learning curve (ahaha…), since its shape is quite unlike most dildos out there. I use the same kind of gentle rocking motion that I used with the Lelo Ella, instead of thrusting hard and fast, or trying to thrust with the curve of the dildo, which I did the first time I used it, but which served no purpose except to tire me out even faster.

Oh, also, since the Pure Wand is steel, i.e. nonporous, you can share it. Make sure to sterilize it via boiling, bleaching (with 10% solution) or dishwashing (top shelf, no soap) before sharing. Sterilize it as well if you’ve used it anally but want to use it vaginally the next time. Germs + vag = no.

So… the Pure Wand: it didn’t make me squirt, but it does make me moan. And I fucking love it.

Review: Lelo Ella

Lelo is basically my favorite company when it comes to vibrators, but I’ve long wondered what the Ella, the one dildo in their product line, would be like. And whether or not it would hold up to my Tantus dildos, because I heart Tantus to no end.

Ella looks just as elegant and discreet as any of Lelo’s other “pleasure objects.” I don’t dislike the way penises look, so I don’t specifically want my dildos to look as un-penis-like as possible. My typical preference in dildos is in between realistic and abstract. However, I definitely appreciate the discreet beauty of Ella. It doesn’t look like a dildo at all, and I’m confident that I can leave it lying around my room without my friends noticing it and making comments. With the Ella, you get the typical excellent Lelo treatment: Ella comes in a sleek black box, with an instruction booklet, one year warranty, and satin storage pouch.

Ella is made out of hard silicone. The toy really doesn’t have any give at all, except at the neck. I don’t really recommend bending it too much because of how thin the neck is. The silicone material is finished off with Lelo’s typical velvet matte, which feels great to touch. Before I jack off with Ella I always find myself fondling and caressing it just because the material feels so nice. Also, like other silicone toys, Ella is non-porous, pththalate-free, and can be shared. Just make sure to sterilize it with a 10% bleach solution, boil it, or throw it in the dishwasher (top drawer, no soap) before sharing.

Both ends of the dildo can be used: the G-spot end, that looks exactly like that of the Lelo Gigi, and the pointy end. I did not much like the pointy end. Why? Because just by looking at it, I completely expected that it would feel like my vagina was getting poked. And that’s exactly what it felt like. That end of the toy does have a nice curve to it, and feels quite filling and pleasant, but that point coupled with the hard silicone is just uncomfortable. Also, there are two tiny LELO insignias stamped onto either side of this end. Lube can easily get stuck there, which makes cleaning a little difficult. (I’d recommend using n old toothbrush.) This end makes for a nice handle, though. Well, except for when I try to grab onto it with lube-y hands. The smooth surface makes it extremely slippery when it’s lubed up.

The G-spot end was what I was most excited to try. Gigi was the toy that lead me to find and play with my G-spot for the first time, and actually have a G-spot orgasm (that I was aware of, anyway). I had high hopes that Ella would grace me with the same result. Like with the Gigi, I had to do some initial maneuvering in order to hit my G-spot. I typically push dildos inside me up to a certain depth, because that’s what feels the most comfortable. However, using the Gigi or Ella requires me to push just that little bit more. After that, however, Ella zeroes in on my G-spot perfectly. I’d been reading that there was a bit of a learning curve with Ella, and I found that to be true too. Its sharp curve catches on my public bone a little bit if I thrust hard and deep like I usually do, so I had to thrust shallowly, or use a sort of rocking motion, so that I was lightly pummeling my G-spot with the head of the toy. Once I figured out how to use it, though, I happily jacked off with Ella until I felt the familiar sensation of a G-spot orgasm washing over me; spreading over my body from deep within my cunt.

I don’t think it’s a toy for everyone, though. For one thing, it’s a bit on the small side. The shape is perfect for G-spotting, but I would almost prefer if the toy was a little thicker, just so that I could have more to clench around. And if you’re a size queen, the Ella probably wouldn’t be enough for you.

But Ella passed my test, alright. This toy makes me want to stretch out my wank session and really enjoy every minute of it.
