Onyxxx Cassia ~ Review

I was sent the Onyxxx Cassia Wand free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review by Stag Shop!

Pros: Rechargeable, Small, Travel friendly, Beginner friendly, Silicone, Beautiful packaging.

Cons: Might not be strong enough for some.

Stag shop is a Canadian based sex shop. They sell a huge variety of sex toys, host in-store seminars as well as attend different events! Here is a little bit of history on the company:

Enhancing sex-positive attitudes and sexual well-being since 1972.

The Horea family started the Stag Shop business at 7 King Street in Waterloo, Ontario in 1972 under the name “Stag Novelties’ Books”. Stag Shop’s first location offered a diverse range of gag gifts, novelties and mild sexual aids. The first Stag Shop location also built a reputation for carrying a wide range of beautiful Halloween costumes. In fact, crowds of customers would line up to get a peek at the store’s new costume offerings during the Halloween season. While the Stag Shop still maintains its reputation for carrying a bevy of Halloween costumes, they are now known for carrying so much more!

The Stag Shop has made phenomenal leaps since the Horeas first started growing their business and branding the Stag Shop name in Waterloo, Ontario. The next generation of Horeas have worked aggressively to continue the Stag Shop legacy and grow the Stag Shop brand. With its family origins, the Stag Shop maintains that integral family approach in its daily operations.

The public taboos against sexy novelties made progress difficult for the Horea family when they first began, but they persisted in their belief that sexy meant fun. Through their determined effort, the Horeas created an environment that is pleasant and tasteful.

Today, the Horea family have built an empire of adult fun stores and continue to offer a comfortable and convenient shopping experience for both men and women.

Use:

The Cassia is a petite sized wand, which is going to make it travel friendly as well as ideal for most people. Most other wands on the market are rather big and bulky. They’re heavy which can cause your arm to get tired during use, but the Cassia is lightweight! It doesn’t have a cord, so you won’t have to worry about finding an outlet to use.

The controls on this wand are simple! There are 3 buttons in the center of the toy. An ‘O’ button, ‘+’ button and a ‘-’ button. Hold the ‘O’ button down for 2 to 3 seconds to turn your wand on and off. The ‘+’ button is going to cycle through the pulsation settings until you’ve reached the highest one. The ‘-’ button is going to cycle back through the settings until you’ve gone back to the lowest setting.

Settings/Speeds:

I would say this wand is about a 3 out of 5 when it comes to vibration strength. If you’re use to the power of the Hitachi, like myself, then this wand may not be for you. It’s going to be great for beginners and people who don’t need much power. The Cassia is very quiet though! If there’s any background noise, it’ll barley be heard. I know if I tried to describe the speeds/patterns, that I would be horrible at it, so here’s a video of the different levels!

Charging:

Charging for Cassia is just as simple as using it! To charge Cassia, you insert the charging plug into the socket labeled ‘DC’ which is located below the ‘-’ button. Push the plug into the socket until you feel a subtle click. The wand lights will flash every 2 seconds while it’s charging. When the lights stay on, it’s completely done charging. The manual says it will require 2 hours of charge time, but the day I got mine it only took mine 45 minutes to an hour before it was fully charged. The battery will last up to 2 hours on a high speed and longer on a low speed. Never use the wand while it’s being charged and only use the original charger included.

Material/Texture:

The majority of this wand is made out of superior grade silicone, which is phthalate free. It doesn’t collect much pet hair like my other silicone toys do, but I still wipe it off before I use it. It has a velvety finish which is completely smooth!

image

Design/Shape/Size:

As I stated earlier, Cassia is a petite sized wand. Looking at pictures online, I figured it was a normal sized wand, so when I pulled it out of the box, I was surprised at how small it was! It fits into my hand perfectly! It’s a beautiful plum color, but it also comes in black. It has silver detailing where the control plate is. It has a sleek design to it. The head is small and really flexible. In the manual, it says the head will bend and flex in a 90 degree angle. I personally wasn’t a huge fan of the flexible head, but some may love that feature! It’s about 9 inches total with a 1.8 inch diameter.

Care/Maintenance:

Cleaning the Cassia wand is easy. You can use a toy cleaner, baby wipes, a 10% bleach solution or a mild soap and water. It is water resistant, but be careful when you’re cleaning around the charge port. Be sure to only use water based lube with your wand! The box makes for a great storage place, but it does (well it’s suppose to) come with a storage bag!

Shipping/Packaging:

The shipping from Stag Shop was fast and discreet! I was surprised at how fast it got from Canada to the East coast! The packaging for all of my Onyxxx products are amazing! They’re simple, yet elegant. It comes with a sleeve that has a picture of the product and some information on it. You slide that off to find a black box that says Onyxxx. When you pull the lid off, you find your toy in protective foam, your charger and the manual. There is suppose to be a storage bag as well, but mine didn’t come with one.

Vixen Creations Gemstones ~ Review

image

image

I was sent the Gemstones free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review by Vixen Creations!

Pros: Comes in multiple sizes, Silicone, Easy to use, Easy to clean, Smooth.

Cons: Expensive!

Use:

According to Wikipedia anal beads are ‘sex toy consisting of multiple spheres or balls attached together in series which are continuously inserted through the anus into the rectum and then removed with varying speeds depending on the effect desired (most typically at orgasm to enhance climax). Those who use anal beads enjoy the pleasurable feeling they receive as the ball passes through the narrow sphincter of the anus.’ Some people may find anal beads pleasurable and some may not. I enjoy anal play, but these beads didn’t really do anything for me. Maybe I’m not using them right or something because this was my first set of them. With that being said, they’re easy to use. Just slowly pop the balls in one at a time until you’ve reached the base. The base is big enough to keep them from getting lost in your anus. To take them out, you just slowly pull on the base.

Material/Texture/Firmness:

The Gemstones are made out of Vixen Creations 100% platinum silicone. So it is body safe, non-porous and phthalate free. They’re completely smooth. In the photos, it looks like there’s a harsh seam going from the top down to the base, but you can’t feel it at all! It does have a slight drag to it, so you should use a dab of water based lube. The balls are firm, but do have a good amount of give to them.

Design/Shape/Size:

I have the medium sized gemstones in a beautiful red shimmer color. They come in 4 different sizes and 4 different colors(see photo below!) The medium size comes in their Smokey Onyx color. I’m not sure if you can get them in the red color that I have, I haven’t seen them on any website, and I asked other reviewers and they hasn’t seen red ones. The colors they do have are very pretty! There are 6 balls in total, all spaced evenly apart. You can see the measurements below:

Care/Maintenance:

On the Vixen Creations website there are some care instructions which I’ve listed below.

  • Wash silicone toys with antibacterial soap and warm water.
  • Boil them for three minutes
  • Toss them into the dishwasher!
  • If you’ll be sharing toys with a partner, use a condom, or wash them between uses.
  • Use only water-based lubricants
  • Silicone based lubricants will destroy our products!
  • They eventually dissolve our premium silicone and will leave a sticky, horrible mess.
  • Our lifetime warranty does not apply to toys with this kind of damage.

Shipping/Packaging:

My box of Vixen Creation goodies came in a plain box discreetly labeled. Inside I found my toys secure with bubble wrap. One thing I noticed was that my toys came in plastic baggies instead of the plastic tubes like my Leo came in. (I was told that reviewers receive their toys in bags, so if you buy any VC toys, yours will come in a plastic tube.) The baggie works well for storage!

Silvarus Double Drop ~ Review

image

image

I was sent the Double Drop free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review by Silvarus!

Pros: Great quality, Beautiful, Smooth, Affordable for a wooden toy.

Cons: Can’t be sterilized.

Silvarus is an Etsy shop based out of Ottawa, Canada that creates beautiful, one of a kind wooden dildos. Each piece is a work of art. The quality of his products are amazing. You can tell that a lot of time and effort is put into each dildo. Richard, the owner, is incredibly sweet and friendly!

The owner is giving you guys a discount code valid for 1 week! Use the code ‘reviewsbyanerd’ for 10% off your order!

Use:

Double drop was my 3rd wooden sex toy, but it’s easily my most favorite! The design and shape make this a beautiful dildo. It is double ended. I tend to use the smaller side as a handle, which works nicely! Each end hits my g-spot nicely! Since this dildo does not have a base, I wouldn’t recommend using it anally. If you plan to share it with other people, please use a condom since it cannot be sterilized!

Material/Texture/Quality:

My dildo is made out of maple wood. It has a clean, pale look to it. There is no texture on this toy. It is completely smooth! I love just running my hand over the dildo. It doesn’t have any drag to it, but I’d still recommend using some water based lube! The quality of my dildo is amazing! I can tell it’s going to last me a very long time with proper care!

Coming to life:

‘It always start with selecting the perfect piece of wood for the design. I prefer Cherry, Maple, Ash or Walnut for my projects. I find the wood need to present a nice grain and pattern for a good outcome. Maple and Cherry has nice lines of grain in wave patterns while it also looks nice and clean. Walnut has nice lines but more straight, and of course the wood has a rich dark colour. Ash can present itself in many different patterns and it’s therefore not always certain that the final product will become as presentable as I first would have hoped. I try to use reclaimed wood as much as I can, and some dildos are even made from old furniture like chairs and bedframes.

Design is usually done on the fly, improvised on the spot with the blank in front of me. The wood itself therefore has a certain input in what design would work for that specific piece. It is then roughly cut out by bandsaw before the major shaping work with different knifes and blades takes over… followed by hours of sanding and surface prep.

One of my favorite moments is when I apply the first and second coating of surface varnish. After all the sanding the surface of the dildo can be dull and lifeless, but when the first brush strokes of varnish is applied, the grain and rich wood colour comes to life and you can see how the final product will present itself.’

Design/Shape/Size:

The double drop is a simple, yet beautiful design. The maple wood that it is made out of shows beautiful grain detailing on over the toy. It is very light weight. It is double ended and curved, making it great for g-spot play! The measurements for this toy are as follows:

  • Total length – 9 inches.
  • Useable length – 8 inches.
  • Smallest bulb diameter – 1.50 inches.
  • Middle diameter – 1 inch.
  • Largest bulb diameter – 1.75 inches.

Care/Maintenance:

On the Silvarus listings it has a bit of information on how to clean and care for your toy:

  • Any kind of water or oil based lubricant can be used safely. Only use mild soap and water to clean the dildo. NEVER use any solvents or alcohol.

Shipping/Packaging:

The shipping for my toy was super fast! It only took 5 days to get from Canada to the east coast. The label on my box was marked as a ‘gift’, so it’s very discreet! Inside I found my toy securely wrapped with bubble wrap. It also came wrapped in a piece of felt, but any orders now will come with a stylish fabric pouch for storage and transportation!

You can purchase your own wooden dildo anywhere from $80 and up at Silvarus!
