Sweet Vibes Bundle – Girls Best Friend, Foami Toy Cleaner, & Drop Lube

I always love it when I get to try a bunch of products from a single company. It lets me see the quality from many different angles. After testing and reviewing the Perfect Match from Sweet Vibes, I was SO happy that they agreed to let me review the Girls Best Friend, their toy cleaner Foami, and their new lube Drop, all together.

Girls Best Friend

Pros

Ok, so I love this toy! It’s design is PERFECT for someone with a larger fupa like myself. One of the major issues that I have with a lot of other air pulse toys is that they are very shallow and require a lot of pressing down of the fat bits to get it where you want. Not this toy! Yes, it’s bulkier, but the larger toy means that it’s easier for people of all body types to use.

The sucker head is a perfect size, it’s also nicely squishy for extra comfort. It also has these little silicone tickler thingies but I’m still not 100% sure that they even do anything. But the sucker head is removeable for full cleaning, always a bonus!

Cons

The MAIN con with this toy is the name. Being non-binary I actually had a really hard time with the name ‘Girls Best Friend‘. I was kind of disappointed that they didn’t go the ‘Perfect Match‘ route, and just call it ‘The Best Friend’ or something like that. It also isn’t completely submersible, but that’s being extra picky. You can still enjoy this in the shower and when things get extra juicy.

Another tiny issue is that the vibration end really does nothing for me. It’s a weak vibe and it makes me wonder how GREAT the air pulse end could have been if they weren’t focused on making it multi use.

Foami Toy Cleaner

Pros

The pros are pretty generic for the Foami cleaner. It doesn’t have a harsh smell, there’s no alcohol so it won’t dry out your toys, the foam is nice, visually, and it doesn’t leave a residue. Pretty much all positives in my book

However…

Cons

Some of the ingredients are a little questionable. Yes, you rinse the cleaner off, so the issues are pretty null, but in my opinion, nothing that goes in your body, vaginally, should have glycerin or artificial fragrance. This has both. So keep that in mind. Yes, it’s one of the few foaming toy cleansers out there, but my favorite is, and will always be the Intimate Earth Green Foaming Cleaner.

Drop Lube

Pros

I was actually pleasantly surprised by this lube. It doesn’t have a strong odor, it doesn’t get sticky like a LOT of water based lubes do, and it lasts. This lube wont dry out for a good long while! Plus, when there is a lot in one place, it stays on the skin instead of melting.

However…

Cons

While it lasts, it’s not thick in ANY sense, so you can forget any type of hardcore, rough, or anal sex while using this lube.

ALSO I have the same issue with this lube that I do with the cleaner; it has glycerin, propylene glycol, plus some other questionable ingredients that are harmful to the skin and pH of the vagina and vulva.

I would honestly stay away from this lube and look for something more natural, as well as multi use, like my favorites Sensuva Ultra Thick Water Based Lubricant and The Butters Palm Grease


Overall, I’d say that Sweet Vibes is a hit or miss brand. While their Perfect Match is literally one of my favorite toys, the Girls Best Friend, Foami, and Drop, are probably not products I will be using again. I would suggest so many other cleaners and lubes over those, and the Girls Best Friend is a really good toy for beginners, or those of you who don’t yet know what type of sensation they enjoy.

An ‘O’ to Remember – My top choices for self pleasure on Valentines Day.

There will be TONS of articles and blog posts about how to make Valentines Day with your honey more fun, but what about those people who don’t have a partner, don’t want a partner, or who has a partner who isn’t a sexual person? Here is a list of pleasure products to try for the ultimate self pleasure experience.

For the Full Pleasure Experience

Before any marathon, you need to warm up. If you’re doing it alone, you’ll need to help things along to make the whole experience more magical. That’s where The Butters Lubes come in. My personal favorites are the AloexShea and the Palm Grease. You’ll get so much bang for your buck with these lubes, plus you’ll get off knowing that you’re supporting a small, black-owned business.

For the Inevitable Mess

Body and Bed

During your self love making, you’re bound to make a mess. The bed, or any surface you’re laying/sitting on, will probably take the brunt of that. If you want to avoid doing a ton of laundry, or sitting with hair dryers pointed at the wet spots you’ve created for hours, I’d suggest getting yourself a No More Wet Spot Waterproof Blanket.

Toys

When you spend hours playing with toys, you’re going to want to make sure they are really clean before (and after to prevent bacterial growth) putting them in, or around, your body’s most sensitive areas. My ABSOLUTE favorite toy cleaner is the Intimate Earth Foaming Toy Cleaner. Using this toy cleaner, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that you’re know using harsh chemicals on your most prized possessions.

For the Sweet Sweet Stimulation

External

For the perfect external stimulation, why mess with the classics? The Blush Sweet Cream Vibe is the best toy (IMO) for a long night of self love. It’s powerful and won’t disappoint you.

Internal

Internal stimulation is VERY personal, but for me, the No More Wet Spot Double G Pop is the ultimate toy. It’s simple, beautiful, multipurpose, and a great toy for self discovery, as well as self pleasure.

Duel

For me, this toy is quite literally the Perfect Match for any person. Before this toy, I had never had an g-spot orgasm. The size, shape, and flexibility of this toy makes it the perfect dual stimulation product for ANY body.

For the Booty Love

Beginner

If you’re interested in making your booty sparkle this year, I highly suggest the Luxe Bling Plug Set by Blush Novelties. The gradual sizes makes booty play so comfortable and the soft silicone (plus a generous dollop of lube!) makes things feel amazing. The addition of the heart shaped gems at the end of each plug is just a bonus and themed perfectly for this holiday.

Experienced

If you’re looking to up your booty game, the B-vibe Rimming Plug Petite is where it’s at. There’s vibrations, and beads, and patterns, oh my! You’ll definitely have the time of your life playing with this toy, and your peach will thank you!

No More Wet Spot Double G Pop

I first discovered No More Wet Spot through my blogger friends and wow o wow am I happy I did. I started by reviewing the original Waterproof Blanket, which you can read here. But eventually my curiosity got the best of me and I reached out to review the Double G Pop. It was the best decision I’ve made during this job.

The Double G Pop itself isn’t all the impressive looking. It’s beautiful, don’t get me wrong, but if taken literally, it’s a metal bar with two acrylic balls on the ends. That’s it. But don’t let that fool you. This is a tool that EVERYONE who is interested in self pleasure and body exploration should have.

The Double G Pop was invented to help you discover and stimulate the erectile tissue on the g-spot. Once aroused, you’ll actually be able to use the Double G Pop to gently stroke the g-spot, helping to figure out what type of pressure you enjoy. When you orgasm, the kegel muscles will clamp around the hard acrylic, making the experience very enjoyable.

One of the main reasons why I dislike a lot of internal toys is because of my body shape. I’m a fat creature (and fucking proud!), so the direction I have to insert internal toys and use them, I end up irritating my urethra. That’s never a pleasant experience. I immediately loved this toy because the middle bar is so thin (yet sturdy), so the opening of my vagina isn’t being squished and rubbed.

I enjoyed experimenting with both hand held, manual stimulation, and using it as a sedentary toy along side a clitoral vibe, making the bar vibrate internally. In this case, thick thighs made everything wonderful as I was able to hold the Double G Pop between them and rotate my hips to get the full g-spot stroke effect. Before I inserted it though, I did some labia and clitoral massaging, which was very pleasant because of the smoothness and first cool touch of the acrylic ball.

When I removed the Double G Pop it made a literal ‘pop’ as it came out of my (now swollen from orgasm) vagina, which really made me giggle. Any toy that can pleasure me and make me laugh is perfect in my book.

There’s no negative to the Double G Pop. It’s the perfect length, there are 2 separate and differently sized sides, it’s easy to use for all bodies, fun to use alongside other toys, it’s pretty spectacular. Why aren’t you here buying one yet??

The Realm Lycan Werewolf Dildo – Harness Compatible – 10.5 inch

When I was told that I would be receiving the Realm Lycan, I had no idea what I was in for. This toy is…frightening, in the best ways possible. Now, if I could just get my hands on the the Realm Rougarou Lock-On Werewolf Handle…then we’d be in business!

The Realm series by Blush Novelties is slowly becoming my absolute favorite collection. While I may only have this, the Lycan, and the Silver Bullet right now, I fully intend on expanding my collection. I am so impressed with the quality and the creativeness that comes from them.

The total length of this beast is 10 and half inches with an insertable length of 8 inches and a width of 2 inches (at the base!). It’s girthy and magnificent! It’s also 100% body safe being made of platinum cured silicone. Plus it’s not super hard silicone, or super floppy, so it’s relatively easy to control.

When using it, the first thing you’ll definitely notice is that the head it HUGE. It’s not for beginners and even I had a rough time. However, once it got in there, the ridge of the head hit my g-spot in such a way that I ended up squirting all over the place! I was shocked, because usually I have to be orgasming to do that….but apparently not.

Besides being totally badass, the Lycan is also lock on compatible. That means that any toy with a ‘vac-u-lock’ attachment or adapter can be used with this. That opens you up to a world of fun. It’s also one of the main reasons I want the Werewolf Handle, because come on, that would be SO cool!

My review might be glowing but there are definitely a couple of negatives. I will say that the beefiness of the Lycan can also be a hinderance. It’s VERY heavy, so without a base or an attachment, you might have a hard time holding it while in use. Also, yes, it’s beautiful and extremely detailed…but that’s also a problem. After use, it’s pretty difficult to clean out all the nooks and crannies.

In the end, I am very impressed with the Lycan. It’s a statement piece, it definitely fits in with my horror/goth aesthetic, and it’s VERY pleasurable. It’s not an easy toy, so be warned, but with enough lube and foreplay, anything is possible.

Stardust Charm Swarovski Crystal Vibrator – Black

The Stardust Charm vibrator by NS Novelties is one of those toys that’s good in theory, but fails in the execution. Yes, it’s pretty, yes, it’s powerful, but where does it lack? Let’s find out.

I tried the Stardust Charm like any other vibrator. I charged it, turned it on, played with the settings, but the one thing that was different was how confused I was. The vibrations weren’t reaching the end that goes against the body. Yet the where the vibrations originated from, they were out of control.

If you look at the design, the ‘handle’, which is the silicone part, is smaller than the glass portion, which is the end that is supposed to go against and/or inside your body. Upon turning it on, you immediately feel exactly where the motor is…in the handle. Which would normally be fine, but it almost instantly made my hand go numb AND when I felt the end of the glass part, there was nothing but a small buzz emanating from it. This was very frustrating.

My guess, is that the crystal pieces take the vibration and use it for their own momentum, OR maybe the glass surrounding them is too thick. Either way, there is NO way I would every be able to get off using it the way it was intended.

That lead to some experimentation.

Like I mentioned before, almost ALL of the vibration power was staying in the silicone handle. So, I went on to try the toy like that. I flipped it over, using the glass as the handle, and surprisingly it was very effective. The vibrations are the right amount of rumbly, holding it by the longer end turned it into a makeshift wand type toy, it was actually quite pleasant.

Using the Charm in this manner makes things just as difficult though. Now I was holding it by a glass piece, which means that any amount of liquid that gets on my fingers or the piece itself makes things very slippery. Also, I was now using the end with the charger and the buttons against my body, so adjusting the settings was…interesting.

Overall, I would probably not recommend the Stardust Charm. While it’s pleasing to look at, that’s about all the pleasure you’ll be getting from it. I would honestly save a couple bucks and go with the Silver Bullet if you were going to go with a large vibe.


Pros

  • Waterproof
  • Pretty
  • Quiet
  • If you use the silicone side as the vibe, its wonderful. You hold on to the glass portion as if it is a wand, which makes use on all body types very easy.

Cons

  • If you use the glass portion as the vibe, it’s awful. The vibrations are in the silicone end, so ALL the vibrations are there, where your hand is, and NONE of the vibrations reach the end of the glass side.

The Realm Silver Bullet

The Realm Silver Bullet is one of the best mid priced bullets I’ve had the pleasure of testing. It’s not the best, but it’s so much further than the worst. When it comes to bullet vibrators, I am a very picky pleaser, so I’m always extremely judgmental with my reviews, and therefore, entirely too honest.

To start off, I’ll echo back to my old love affair of pretty packaging. The Silver Bullet, part of the Realm line by Blush Novelties, is completely my cup o’ tea. Outwardly, it comes in your standard flip top, flimsy box, but as soon as you open it up….WOW. The internal packaging is a very sturdy cardboard box with a intricate wood and hinge detail. When you pop it open, inside lays the silver bullet, glistening, and snuggled into luxurious purple satin fabric. It’s very coffin like (which, for a gothy vamp like me) is PERFECT!

Ok, moving on, because I don’t think there is a single soul who loves packaging as much as me….

I really enjoy the over design and appearance of the Silver Bullet. It’s larger (4 inches) than the Tango (3.5 inches) which is always nice. The size, when using it made it easier to fit against my clitoris (fat fupa babe for life!) and I was definitely able to more precisely move the toy against my body.

Another super positive is the variety of speeds and patterns. There are 10 different patterns to chose from versus the Tangos 8. Plus the motor is REALLY nice and rumbly at the lower settings. As soon as you get up to peak power, the classic buzzy vibes set it.

Like the typical bullet vibrator, the Silver Bullet is all motor, and that motor is very strong, which means that after a few minutes of use, you’ll definitely feel your hand get tingly. With that in mind, the fact that the on/off buttons are extremely difficult to find AND push, make this toy very frustrating. Plus the fact that you can’t keep it’s shiny chrome finish…well, shiny for more than a few seconds is extra rough.

Overall, if you’re in the market for a new toy, a beginner vibe, or one that will fit your body, I’d definitely chose the Silver Bullet. Aesthetically it’s on point and quality it’s pretty amazing. Yes, there are some negatives, but it’s very rare that a toy has none. For what you get (strong vibes, larger, yet still discreet size, fully waterproof and rechargeable) you get a pretty dang good deal.

Pros

  • Waterproof
  • Size
  • You can use the cool, goth looking packaging as the holder
  • The vibrations are intense and compete with the We-Vibe Tango (IMO)
  • Price point is better for a beginner vibrator

Pro/Con

  • Gets pretty hot after about 10 minutes of use. So, great for temperature play/sensation, horrible for summer fun, and for those who take longer to orgasm.

Cons

  • Makes your hand go numb after marathon use
  • Takes a long time to charge. I had mine sitting on the charger for over an hour and a half
  • Difficult to turn on and off. You need to press the buttons fairly firm otherwise it wont, and that can be hard for some people (and after you’ve had an orgasm…)

Godemiche Skrue Effulgence Medium

I feel so bad about it taking this long for me to get around to writing this. I got this toy literally the day before I decided to originally quit doing my Pink Space Lime blog. So without further adieu, the Skrue, by Godemiche silicone.

I love the Skrue so much. Overall, such a quality toy. The base is so unique! Because it’s flared, it’s both harness and anal compatible. The ‘screw’ rivets make the sensation, both vaginally and anally, so delightful. This specific version was a custom creation, but you can get a different version here.

Pros

  • Pretty!
  • Perfect size for different types of play
  • Unique base
  • Flared for harness and anal play
  • Ridges are wonderful anally
  • 100% body safe silicone
  • Squishy but not overly so

Cons

  • The only real negative that I found was that when I got it, specifically this version, there was glitter still coming off it, and there are small holes in a few places where the glitter came out. Nothing a good deep cleaning after use won’t fix!

I received the Skrue for free in exchange for my honest review. If you’d like to work with me, or have me review your products, please contact me.

Fiddle Fone

When I saw the Fiddle Fone on the Humango Toys website I was obssessed! I immediately reached out to the owner and asked if it would be at all possible to review it. I told him that I have autism and the idea of using the Fiddle Fone as a stim toy was very exciting.

Once I got the toy, the love was real. I used it for hours and it did exactly what I thought it would. The smell and the sensation of the wood was intoxicating. I had a blast (see below for some stim examples). I loved using it for its intended purpose as well, to replace the endless scroll on our phones.

Overall, it was a great product to test, with the possible future issues of cleanliness aside. I now keep this toy permanently next to me to keep me focused and to let me stim when I need to, it’s wonderful. Please, support this small business and get your own Fiddle Fone today!

Pros

  • Can use it for its original intention, to distract yourself when you put your phone down.
  • Works as a stim toy (rolling the ball, flipping it in your hand, and jiggling it) (see gifs)
  • Smells WONDERFUL
  • Local (pdx) small business

Cons

  • Worried about cleanliness. It’s stained, but it’s basically raw wood, so using it a lot (especially the roller ball) could lead to gunk build up, especially in the roller chamber, since you cant remove the ball to clean it. I COMPLETELY understand that this isn’t made for extreme use, but for the use that I am using it for, these are my worries.

I’m Back!

As you may or may not remember, I had a blog. That blog was called Pink Space Lime. I ended it, very shortly after I publicly came out as non-binary, for personal reasons. But no more! I’m back baby!! Stick around as I tell you all about what I’ve been up to and what is to cum.

How My Life Has Changed

Since the last time you saw me, I have come out as non-binary, my pronouns are they/them/it, and I now go by Raven. My new descriptor in all things has become ‘Your favorite queer, alien Goddexx’. The beginning of my new sexuality journey was rough, to say the least, but I had such an amazing support group from people that I have friended on social media. Slowly, I am coming into my own and rediscovering who I am.

In addition to becoming a more evolved being, I have also been diving hard into acceptance of my autism and disabilities. My life has the joys of PCOS, autism (a recent addition), and other bodily yuckiness. I’m navigating those issues all the time, but I’ve only recently stared being more vocal about them on social media and I hope to transfer that to here.

Over all, my life hasn’t changed all that much. I’m still the agoraphobic hermit I once was, except now, refusing to leave your house is a good thing(?)! I’m also always trying to relearn how love myself more and more each day, while constantly trying to not overwhelm myself with the pressures of social media and capitalism…

What Am I Doing With My Life?

No that is not (entirely) an existential question. I’m actually doing stuff with my life now…at 30…after dealing with major mental and health trauma. Yay me…

Portrait Illustration of @fattyabaddie

Drawing is usually taking up a lot of my time. I draw a lot when I’m stressed, which, in this dumpster fire of a world, is often. Making pretty things has always been my go to serotonin boost. Plus, the fact that I’m constantly drawing gorgeous and inspirational babes makes it that much more enjoyable.

Photography Portrait of anonymous

Photography has always been part of my creativity, but recently I’ve been reconnecting with it. I started by finally upgrading my equipment and taking some intro portraits of a friend. I love it so much. I know Covid is a real bitch right now, but I hope to continue with more people in the future. Currently, y’all will just have to deal with seeing my pretty face all the time.

Major Blog/Website Changes

Obviously, the biggest change is that my blog is now called Raven the Alien. I wanted the blog to be more….more. My old stuff is VERY focused on accepting your body, sexuality, not being ashamed of loving pleasure, etc. While that will always remain a constant throughout this thing, there will be SO much more I cover.

One of the first huge changes I am making is expanding beyond sexuality. Like I just mentioned, I will never NOT be open and honest about sexuality, but the posts I have in mind move to other things in ones life to love and discuss. I have a few mental health pieces on the books as well as a review on a product that can be very helpful for stimming in autistics.

Something you’ll see a lot more is the dramatic move away from gendered products and discussions. From now on, the products I review (sex toys, clothes, etc) will all be inclusive to everyone, whether that be from a literal POV or from the ‘be open minded’ POV. I’m not sure there is a great way to really explain this in a single paragraph, so just stick around and see what I’m on about.

The Future

I am so excited to restart this journey. When I began it last time, it changed my life in ways I don’t think I can ever explain. Now that I am in a totally different headspace than I was originally, I’m extra psyched.

You can be sure that fun things are coming in the future. I have so many ideas tumbling around in my chaotic little brain. As you all know, I can’t just sit around with only a few projects, I must have ALL the stress. But for now, I hope you’ll stick around to read to stories I have to tell and learn about the products I have to share.

Naughty Bits Oh My G-Spot

The Naughty Bits collection from CalExotics is really adorable. Every piece in the collection is fun and affordable. There are a few pieces that don’t live up to the ‘body safe’ standard that you’re used to from this blog, but the Oh My G-Spot is not one of those pieces. It’s so pretty and this is a toy that will be an excellent addition to your collection, and on display on your nightstand (if you can find the batteries to use it!)

The Oh My G-Spot is made of smooth ABS plastic with a silicone power button. There is also a silicone ring around the screw cap that makes it 100% waterproof. It takes 2 C batteries and lasts quite a long time. There are 10 vibration patterns and, what’s really cool, is it has a memory, so if you find a pattern that you LOVE, it will always remember where you left off, so you don’t have to go hunting again.

I actually really love this toy. It’s big, girthy, and the vibrations are the absolute right amount of rumbly. The motor is placed right at the tip so the vibrations get where you need them to go. Also, a lovely little bonus is, because of the toys size and material, the vibrations don’t really reach the base where you hold on, so your hand won’t go numb.

Now to the fun part, the bitching. As I mentioned before, the Oh My G-Spot takes 2 C batteries. What the hell uses C batteries anymore? I went to 2 different Targets and neither of them carried these batteries. I’m lucky that my rechargeable battery set had C adapters, otherwise I literally would not have been able to test this it. That being said, it does actually say on the instructions to not use rechargeable batteries, for some reason, but I only used them the once, and everything was fine.

Besides the battery issue, the Oh My G-Spot is a really well made, cute toy. The vibrations are amazing for a $33 toy and the fact that it’s waterproof as well as having an awesome selection of rumbly patterns makes this a very excellent buy. For anyone looking for a beautiful, cheap, body safe g spot toy, this one is for you!
