In late June Fun Factory quietly put out a press release announcing a new updated model of their vibrating male masturbator, the Cobra Libre II, and it finally found its way into this month's edition of ETO magazine where I read all about it. Amidst all my eagerness to find out how they'd improved it I was lucky enough to be sent a unit by Fun Factory to review.
I reviewed the original Cobra Libre back at the start of 2013, and my views on it were largely positive, but I did have a few niggling complaints about things such as the temperamental touch-sensitive buttons, and it appears that these have been addressed in the new version, so it should be interesting to put it to the test.
Last year also saw the release of the Pulse by Hot Octopus, the first direct rival to the Cobra Libre, so it looks like we're in for a three-way comparison, with the old, the new, and the competitor all being weighed against each other.
I was sitting here today lusting after some of the new Fleshjack Boys dildos that Fleshjack have added to their range, when it occurred to me that I hadn't taken a photo of my ever-expanding collection in a while. In fact the last time was in March of 2013, back when I had just 5 of them, and I've since added Dolph Lambert and Mick Lovell to my ensemble.
Check it out below for a couple of photos to see how all 8 measure up next to each other. At this rate I'm going to need a bigger windowsill soon.
Last week I reviewed the Zolo Cup, Zolo's answer to the Tenga Cup, and found out that it came up a little short. This week I'm going to be reviewing another Zolo product, also kindly provided by the folks at Bondara, the Zolo Pocket Pool, which is more or less a Tenga Egg. You may be sensing a pattern here.
Whereas last week I did pretty much a direct back-to-back comparison with the Zolo and Tenga cups, in this case I reviewed my Tenga Egg back in June of 2012, so we're going to have to rely mostly on my memory when ascertaining which is superior.
A couple of weeks ago Peter from Bondara got in touch and asked if I'd be interested in reviewing one of the new Zolo products they had in stock. Zolo wasn't a brand that I was familiar with before, but it's an American company (with products manufactured in China), that specialises in a series of male masturbators very similar to those on offer from the Japanese company Tenga. I hate to use the word "knock-off" but that is immediately what sprung to my mind when I saw them, so it remains to see whether they've managed to take Tenga's idea and improve upon it in some way, or if indeed it's just a poor imitation. I reviewed the Tenga Cup a few days ago, so let the comparisons begin!
