NSFW - Follow the White...errrr...Silver Glittery Rabbit!

Warning: Sex Toy Review Ahead.
For those who are shocked and muttering "but this is a CRAFT blog!", no it isn't.  It is MY blog, and I happen to enjoy crafting...and sex toys.

Ok, now let me say that this review post is WAY overdue!
When I was approached a couple of months ago by Eden Fantasys, asking if I would be interested in reviewing one of their adult toys, I jumped at the opportunity.  A woman cannot have too many battery-operated friends, and I am always happy to expand my small but loved collection.

The toy I selected was a dazzling vibrating rabbit with the boring name "Rotating G spot rabbit".  The fabulous clear, glitter-filled rotating shaft with vibrating rabbit more than makes up for its uninspired name.

  I am quite impressed with this toy. 
  I also think that this MAY be the "disco stick" that Lady Gaga was talking about.

Material: TPE
        This product was provided free of charge to the reviewer.

The shaft itself was a little larger than I had expected, but that is really the only negative thing I can say about it - and some may consider that a huge benefit (pun kinda intended).  I love that the shaft has a modern, clean appearance, and does not resemble a disembodied penis.  Those vibes always kinda creep me out.
Double-plus bonus points for its cool, silver & clear glitter (so many seem to just come in pink or purple).
The base has a non-metal chrome finish with easy-to-use lighted control pad.

The rotation and vibration functions each have 3 settings, from ho-hum to toe-curling fun.  Not into clockwise action? The rotating action in the shaft can be reversed for those who have a counter-clockwise preference (I really wouldn't know the difference myself, but hey, to each her own, and this vibe has it!).
The vibrating rabbit has long, soft, flexible ears that actually reach their target.  This is my favorite part, and has helped place this toy at the top of my go-to stash.
The curved, nubby head of the shaft is intended for G-spot stimulation, but I didn't experience this.  I doubt this is the fault of the toy as my cervix is tilted, making everything just a little out of place on the inside (too much info? ahh hell, this is a sex toy review - wtf did you expect?!)

Operating on 3 AA batteries (easy to remove/replace), this is the FIRST vibrator I have had where I did not need to change the batteries for every use - and I use the cheapskate batteries!  This sparkly bunny packs a lot of power without taking too much juice!
I have to mention the other best part - the sound.  Or rather, the LACK of sound.  Seriously, the vibration setting - even on high - is practically silent.  The rotation function makes a SLIGHT noise that would not be audible from behind a closed door.  Quietest fun you will ever have!

The Rotating G spot rabbit is easy to clean, requiring only mild soap and water, or some fantastic sex toy wipes like Afterglow.  The TPE (a safe, soft, rubbery,  latex-and-phthalate-free thermoplastic compound) should not be disinfected with boiling water, so use of condoms is suggested for those who share their toys.  I don't share, so I have never had to put the bunny in a jacket.  This toy can be used with either silicone or water-based lubricants.   It is a waterproof vibe for those who are interested in some bathtime fun (or who like taking long walks on the beach).

Overall:  I highly recommend this vibrator for anyone who wants a quality rabbit vibe that is quiet but powerful.  It is much less expensive than rabbits with similar functions, yet outperforms any I have used in the past.  Eden Fantasys offers a fabulous selection and excellent customer service.  Billing is discreet.  Your toys will arrive in plain packaging so your mail person need never know what is going on behind closed doors.  If you have any problem with your new toys, Eden Fantasys offers no-hassle returns and exchanges (because who really wants to haggle over a faulty butt plug?).

Stay tuned for a CRAFTY blog post of the fun storage box I made for this new toy! Gotta love combining sex toys and crafting!

ed note: The vibrator featured in this review was provided to me by Eden Fantasys at no cost.  I was not compensated for the review.  Eden Fantasys encourages HONEST reviews as a part of their excellent customer service.  The opinions stated here are my own.

Heat Wave

My apologies for the delay in the post I promised.
Insane heat wave has been keeping me away from my computer for more than a few minutes at a time. The temperature has been hitting 39C (that is 102F for my American friends) of pure humidity. These upstairs rooms are at least 10C hotter than the air outside, so you can imagine it is pretty sick.
I can practically CHEW the air up here, so I have been staying downstairs where the air conditioner has made life livable.
I really hope the heat and humidity break soon. My new bed is scheduled to arrive on the 13th, and I am hoping to start sewing some accents for the room (curtains, pillows, etc).
I think it is time for a Fudgesicle!

Hope to do a real post soon!
