Sex toy review: Je Joue Mimi

Sh! November 1st, 2011

This begins well, from the ribbon tied, deep matt black box (would make a lovely present) to how well it is designed throughout.

The Mimi is packaged as ‘an introduction to your first sex toy’, but I have been through quite a few less able products and now the Mimi has arrived, I have finally arrived at something designed with us in mind.

The whole design is fab; it’s shaped like a pebble which fits neatly into your hand and is made of warm silicone. There is a light which comes to let you know it’s on, or charging, but there are no lumps or bumps throughout the whole surface. The only place there are, is on the end, with a small + and – button.

The Mimi charges from a plug with a magnetic charger…. Woo hoo, no more batteries or strange cables; that in itself has to be worth the £60 price tag.

It has 10 settings, 5 vibrating ones which go from slow rumble to strong, then 5 pulses which are very imaginative and there is no horrendous buzz to put you off proceedings. There is so much choice you have to be careful not to use it like a remote control. We kept flicking through the controls and ended up in hysterics!

One thing about this toy is that it makes you smile. It oozes quality and dispenses with the faff factor. It is even safe to use it in the bath. Charge it, turn it on, put it where you want it and away you go. You can use it solo or together, with lube or without. The only concern I have, is that it may actually do away with the need for a partner (or food, or getting out).

Is dating a friend a good idea?

couple holding hands October 20th, 2011

It has become a cliché at weddings, writes Daniela Baker. A teary-eyed bride saying she married her best friend. It’s a romantic notion that two people are so much in tune with one another that they want to be together forever. Many will scoff and close the door on ever harboring romantic thoughts for a friend, while others will more than entertain it. (more…)
