Metal Worx Luv Plug


This week it's time for my second review for the folks over at ThatPosition, who generously sent me the Metal Worx Luv Plug along with the Lelo Bob which I reviewed at the start of the month. The two products are similar in that they're both small, manual, prostate massagers, so it should be interesting to compare and contrast.

I'm quite a fan of the Metal Worx toys, and am steadily building up quite the collection, with this being number 4 now, so I have high expectations for it.

Lucky Bloke

 

I was contacted recently by the people behind Lucky Bloke, and asked if I would be interested in doing a review for them. Lucky Bloke provide a rather ingenious service: they supply packs of assorted condoms, allowing you to sample a wide variety of different shapes, sizes, thicknesses, textures, etc, without spending a small fortune. Buying condoms can be a bit like Russian roulette: you walk into a pharmacy, grab a pack of something off the shelves, and have no real idea whether they're going to be any good or not. If it turns out that they're terrible you've still got half a boxful that you've paid good money for, so either you use them up to the detriment of future sexual experiences, or you throw them out and say goodbye to that cash forever. Even if you've found a condom that you think you like, chances are there may be something even better out there which you just don't know about. Lucky Bloke's solution is both simple and effective: you get a pack of different condoms, you try each one out, and eventually through a process of elimination you determine which works best for you and you need only ever buy that brand again. No more wasted money and half-full packs of condoms lying around, what could be better?

As a single man I don't have much scope right now to be trying out dozens of different condoms, which is where Lucky Bloke's other service comes in, lube samples! Picking the right lube is just as tricky as it is picking the right condom, possibly more so, and to make matters worse lube can be expensive and come in great bottles full of the stuff. As a sex toy reviewer lube is my best friend, and so I'm especially loathed to risk making a mistake when buying some, which is why this is such a fantastic idea in my mind.

Seal of Approval.

Over at one of my favourite online stores, SexToys.co.uk, they have a policy of recognising blogs which they feel do an outstanding service to the sex toy community, by giving out their coveted "Seal of Approval" award.

I'm very honoured to say that this month I have been selected as the recipient, as you can tell by the shiny new wax seal adorning my sidebar, and conveniently it even matches my blog colour scheme!

Jess over at the Vibe did a brief interview with me there to mark this event, and if you're interested you can read it here.

I just want to say a quick word of thanks to all my readers and friends in the sex toy community, who've helped the success of this blog over the past couple of years, and who've inspired me to keep on writing with all your lovely comments.

Lelo Bob


It's funny to think that after all this time spent reviewing sex toys over the past two years I've only tried out one product from the Swedish company Lelo, but then again I'm not quite the right demographic for their range of luxury vibrators. This week the lovely folks over at ThatPosition have sent me the Lelo Bob to review for them, which is a small manual prostate massager for gentlemen. I don't know about you guys but I find 'Bob' a rather amusing name for a sex toy, mostly because I'm a big fan of that early 90s David Lynch cult-classic 'Twin Peaks' - if you've never seen it then I highly recommend it and you'll understand exactly what I mean. I can already hear the eerie theme music in my mind, and Kyle MacLachlan uttering the name "Bob" in his oh-so-distinctive manner. I digress though, so let's get on with the review.
