Product Review: 3 Way Tonguejoy Vibrator – A Classic Updated

TongueJoyinpackage

What is a Tonguejoy: The Tonguejoy vibrator was originally released in the early 2000’s, quickly becoming one of the most popular sex toys and redefining the vibrator category. It was worn on the tongue and used for oral sex on both male and female.

Our Review: One of our favorite products – both for effectiveness and innovation – is the original TongueJoy micro vibrator. Unfortunately, our original finally died after years of faithful service; but along comes a new and improved version to take its place, promising improvements galore, including more power, easier use, a redesigned and smaller vibrating unit, an even a more versatile set of accessories to expand its range, and a lower price, to boot. Could this be the Tonguejoy we’ve been waiting for all these years since parting with our original? Continue reading

Product Review: Lux LX3 Waterproof Prostate Massager

Synopsis: A vibrating prostate and perineum stimulator/massager.

Farenheit’s Review:

Unboxing

Lux has put a lot of effort into packaging and presentation. The box is unassuming and elegant; with the words “Male Stimulator” on the top it doesn’t attempt to hide what it contains, but the logo and styling make it look considerably like a thick cigar box. After breaking the seal the lid flips open (the catch is magnetic rather than a clasp, but again, it feels like a cigar box) to reveal an insert with information about all their
products printed on…synthetic vellum? Who does that? Once again, I should stress that everything about the presentation of this product exudes class. Actually the insert is difficult to read at first because the instruction manual beneath it shows through the
vellum, but I’ll let that slide.

Below the vellum insert is the manual. It’s got a few pages of info in 5 different languages with the typical usage instructions, diagrams, cleaning tips and warnings. There are two things worth noting that they included in the manual, though. First are the specs…they actually give you details like the capacity and type of the battery and the vibration frequency of the motors if you care about any of that. Not that you can get at any components, ensconced as they are in their seamless silicone tomb,
but hey, it impressed me. They also mention the various certification markings they’re required to put on the product and apologize for the necessity. The only beef I have with the markings on the device is that the LUX brand is embossed on the body-side of the perineum stimulator — it didn’t bother me, but I could imagine someone who’s particular sensitive to texture changes noticing it.

Finally, the toy itself and its charger are nestled under the manual in cutouts in a block of stiff foam, finishing out the packaging with the same attention to presentation that it’s had up to this point.

First Impressions:

The toy itself is made of medical grade silicone, so it’s non-porous and hydrophobic. The finish is a soft, satiny finish — like my FunFactory Share — rather than the slick, hard finish of the Feeldoe or the We-Vibe (if you don’t have any of those toys, you can think of it as the difference between the hard, shiny leather of men’s dress shoes and the softer finish of suede shoes). The LX3+ is much stiffer than other silicone toys I’ve seen in the past, too; it feels as though it’s got a hard plastic skeleton beneath the silicone skin providing a rigid frame. I think this rigidity is to help transmit vibration through the entirety of the device, rather than keeping it local to the area that the motor resides.

The power button is well-located on the underside of the device and is subtle, but not difficult to find or actuate when you’re all lube-y and in the moment. The charging port is a small hole just up the side of the shaft (minor design nit-pick; I’d probably have put the charging port on the bottom of the device to keep it away from fluids, but I didn’t actually have a problem with it’s placement). The charger is a side-mount wall-wart power supply that thoughtfully keeps your other outlets free for more devices and it attaches to the toy with a long, thin probe that looks like a skinny headphones plug.

Down to Business:

The bulb at the head of the toy is somewhat egg shaped and provides a nice taper to facilitate insertion once it’s been lubed up, and is large enough relative to the neck that I didn’t have to worry about it slipping out accidentally at all. Before even turning it on, the LX3+ makes a pretty good butt plug when you’re standing, walking, or lying down. It’s comfortable enough to forget about if you’re lying down, and when you walk around your legs bump into the perineum stimulator and actually cause the toy to rub up against your prostate with each step. The rigidity of the toy has a downside here, though, because I found it to be very uncomfortable to sit on a chair or even a soft bed with it in.

The lowest setting is really more of a gentle rumble throughout the entire groin area than a vibration, and I felt it primarily externally around the perineum. At higher speeds I found that the sensation comes into focus and moves back to the sphincters and up into the prostate. The manual recommends tightening the rectal muscles once you’ve acclimated to the toy, and I can attest to the fact that doing so varies the sensation nicely…the toy is light enough and large enough to be easy to move aroundwith those internal muscles to provide a range of different sensations. I also found that lying on my back with my legs together and extended pushed the perineum stimulator arm back and applied direct, hands-free pressure to my prostate.

Parting Thoughts:

To turn the device on you press the power button once. To turn it off you press it again. To increase vibration, instead of giving you extra buttons or making you press repeatedly, Lux uses “press and hold” technology (greatly hyped in the manual); press the power button and hold it until you reach the desired level of stimulation. As they say in the instruction manual, I found this very intuitive to use and quickly grew to appreciate it. One more very clever feature is the lock. If you press the power button three times quickly the toy locks and will not turn on until you unlock it (again, pushing the power button three times in quick succession). This lock feature lets you store or transport the toy without worrying about it turning on and getting discovered or running its battery down.

On the topic of discovery, the toy is surprisingly quiet, even on higher settings. The lowest setting is barely noticeable in an empty, quiet house and I actually answered the door with the toy on a medium setting and it was completely unnoticeable over the ambient noise of a suburban street.
