Review by Lady Bliss
"Oh my!" I actually exclaimed out loud as I initially viewed the Cloud 9 Starter Kit for Her. More specifically, the size of the dildo made me a bit apprehensive (and curious). And anal beads- what do I do with those??? Allow me to explain further!
The kit contains three sex toys and a satin carrying pouch. The kit consists of the aforementioned dildo (quite enormous but not the largest I've seen) as well as a set of anal beads and a vibrating egg. The kit is easy to open, no scissors needed (which makes it perfect if you want to play right away, and you just might when you see this kit!)
Let's start with the measurements - 7 inches long with a 6 inch circumference! I'm not sure this qualifies as a beginner's dildo-- I had to insert it quite slowly, as it felt massive. I would highly recommended first being aroused and then generously using lubrication (water-based lube), especially if you are a novice.
You will need to supply 2 AA batteries yourself, the kit does not include them. It was very easy to insert the egg (it was small and slimmer than others I've used). The vibration was quite powerful. It appears that you can adjust the vibration setting on the remote but it truly felt the same to me whether I turned the dial up a notch or not. Note that the egg is attached by a plastic string to the remote, it is not wireless.
I'm new to anal beads and have never used them before so I was eager to try them. These beads have a graduated size from small to large. The beads are one piece of silicone and easy to clean. I used a thicker lubricant for the anal beads (AI extra thick), as recommended by the research that I did online before my first use. I also inserted all but the last two beads, as I was a bit scared as a beginner to insert the entire string of beads too far.
I'm assuming you, the reader, already know how to use a dildo. This dong, in particular, has a suction cup so you can easily use the dildo by yourself - and I do hope you do so, as it is a very interesting and erotic experience. The size and shape of the dildo comes close to an actual penis (albeit the dildo is larger than most) and this provides amazing stimulation for vaginal or anal use.
On the following day I used the vibrating egg. It wasn't too loud, and the vibration was strong. I enjoyed it, but I was not be able to orgasm just from the use of the egg, so I used a generic clitoral massager at the same time. I do believe I left the egg in too long (5 minutes) because it started to tickle and did not feel as pleasurable as it did the first couple minutes. I would suggest taking breaks with the egg, which is easy enough to do via the remote. The egg definitely enhanced arousal but it took about to same amount of time to climax as it did for me without it.
The same thing happened with the anal beads- no orgasm on its own but it sure felt good, especially pulling the beads out one by one and then inserting them repeatedly, while using the clitoral massager. One can also keep the beads in until an orgasm is reached, pulling the beads out fairly quickly at the peak of climax. Doing this, for me, was enjoyable and something unlike anything I've tried, but not to the extent from what I've seen in porn whereby people have what seems like the most intense orgasm of their lives! I actually preferred, at least being that I was on my own, repeatedly inserting and pulling out the beads somewhat slowly. I would definitely use the beads for foreplay in this manner.
This kit was a lot of fun for me but there are two scenarios in which it would be perfect:
First, I would have much rather been in a situation where I was using the kit with a partner, exploring together the sensations and arousals this kit is sure to bring. It would be a wonderful gift for a beginner and also I think it would be a great idea for a couple either wanting to spice up their sex life or celebrate something such as an anniversary or birthday.
Second, in using this kit on your own, I would suggest "mixing it up". I used each product on separate occasions for purposes of this review but I believe it would be much more enjoyable to use one item in the kit for a short time, then switch to another, then another, and back again. Highly recommended for a unique night of pleasure!
|Recommend water-based lube like Sliquid H2O.|
