Ripples Waterproof Mini Vibrator

by on Sep.26, 2011, under Spice

I was recently sent the Ripples Waterproof Mini Vibrator for review from Good Vibrations, and though it is made of ABS Plastic rather than silicone (my preferred material because it is easy to sterilize between uses) I thought it was still very worthy of being shared here on the Swingers Attic. (please see notes about cleaning and sterilizing this product at the end of my post)

Here it is.
The Ripples Waterproof Mini Vibrator in it’s packaging.

Fun tiny vibe in the box

Ripples is from the Doc Johnson Decadence collection of sex toys and has their trademarked “Velvet Cote” finish.
Velvet cote is a good description because the vibe feels velvety-soft.
Why do I like this vibe?
It is because this wavy little plaything is petite enough to take anywhere. (I took that line from Good Vibrations description because it fit so perfectly)
With a wider base and narrower tip it fits anywhere too!
The ripples make it great for soft anal play, but the reality is that this vibe is best for external clit stimulation.
I love small vibrators that I can toss in my purse and bring with me anyplace.
Little things like this are so small you can even just put it in a pocket, or better yet, make your husband put it in his pocket and carry it around for you just in case it is needed.

How small is it?
It is about the size of my index finger.

The ripples vibrator is about the same size as my finger

I’m sure all you fun people out there in swinger land know how wonderful something the size of a finger can be. Now imagine that little finger is velvety soft, rigid, smooth, has no nail on the end to worry about, has ripples, and vibrates.
Nice finger I’d say. I hope your thinking girly fingers because it is about the size of my husbands pinky finger.
Here it is compared to my pinky finger.

This vibe may be my husband pinky size but my pinky is smaller

I have small fingers. My pinky wouldn’t do it for you. The ripples vibe would though I bet.

If your a more organized person than I am and you like to keep all your little swinger bag nick nacks separated in little bags and cases you will love this.
It comes with a great little case that enables you to store the vibe safely from all your other items.
No zip lock needed!
This case would also be great just for general storage or for when you are traveling. It is always funny to me when the airport guys open up your case and see your vibrator stuffed between your undies and toothpaste, but I know not everyone thinks that way.

The little case for your finger sized vibrator

Ripples is discreet little toy.
It is waterproof, has a multi speed dial type control (the lightest vibration is VERY quiet) and only requires 1 AA battery to tickle your fancy.
Not a must, but if you want a small, low noise, velvety, rippled pocket sized vibe that you can take anyplace then this is one worth checking out.
It is certainly a great alternative to a standard pocket rocket styled vibe, and though it isn’t the best for internal use it is wonderful to have that option.

This vibe is a keeper

Cleaning and sterilization notes of ABS:
Though ABS plastics clean well with just some soap and water they can not be sterilized with normal household products without possible damage to the product.
If you are sharing this toy with people whom you are not fluid bonded then bleach is your only option for sterilization between uses.
ABS can be soaked a 10% to 20% solution of bleach to water (resulting is satisfactory sterilization) but bleach can cause slight corrosion or discoloration to these plastics. It is usually very slight and takes multiple soaks to notice such corrosion / discoloration, but it does happen.
Isopropyl alcohol may also be used on ABS plastics, but please note that this serves to sanitize rather than fully sterilize the toy.
Since this product is a not easily sterilized in the home environmental I must say that it would be safest to use a condom on the product when sharing. The size of this toy however makes me wish to recommend latex finger cots instead.

Getting Real With My First Mate Silicone Dildo

by on Jul.17, 2011, under Spice, Unsorted

So what do you think of my new toy?
Does this cock look realistic
It may look just almost real, but it feels totally real.
This is the First Mate Silicone Dildo from Good Vibrations. I requested it from them to review because I am always looking for sex toys that are good for sharing. I despise using condoms on sex toys and because of that I find myself rather limited in selection because many toys can’t be properly cleaned between uses.
This fabulous realistic dildo is 100% silicone and can be boiled between uses or cleaned with a 10% bleach solution. Safe sex toys rule!

Besides seeking safe I am always on the search for a realistic feeling cock.
This is it!
This Perfectly sculpted realistic cock holds body heat well and has just the right amount of firmness to seem like the real thing.
The head is so perfectly formed I can’t help myself from wanting to suck on it.

I have used this dildo now for strap-on fun with a girlfriend and both she and I agree that it feels just wonderful.
The First Mate was a tad big to use on her ass, but after a bit of good for-play she was able to use it on mine without any trouble.
It was an orgasmic delight.
I have also used it in my pussy while my husband took me from behind for some simulated DP fun and it was spectacular to say the least.

The First Mate from Good Vibrations is a gold star dildo!

realistic silicone dildo for your swinging adventures

The First Mate is available in 4 color options.
● Vanilla
● Caramel
● Coffee
● Black
The one I am showing in these photos is the Coffee color one.
It is 1 3/4″ at the base and 1 1/2″ towards the tip, and 7 inches long.
Body safe, and has a very realistic feeling vein-textured shaft.
This is the perfect realistic dildo for sharing amongst friends and can be easily sterilized between uses.
I highly recommend this dildo for swingers who like to share their toys.

NOTE: Please always remember that most silicone based lubes are NOT compatible with silicone toys.
I recommend using water based lubes only with silicone toys. If in doubt read the product instructions & warnings.
