Sex Toy Review: Rampant Rabbit Platinum Petite

Rampant Rabbit Platinum Petite Just in time for Easter, those lovely peeps over at Ann Summers sent me a rabbit! Naturally, it’s the rampant kind, as opposed to the sort you’d keep in a cage.

The Rampant Rabbit Platinum Petite has been a long time coming (if you’ll pardon the pun), if you ask me. For a while now new rabbits have been released which have been bigger and better than the last. But what about the girls that wanted smaller ones? Well, Ann Summers have definitely come through with their new petite range.

This particular model is an inch shorter and a quarter of an inch smaller in girth than the Rampant Rabbit Touch. But although it’s smaller, it certainly still packs a punch! With 11 vibrating functions and a 3 speed rotating shaft, there’s still plenty to keep you happy. It takes 3 AAA batteries and is also waterproof – bonus!

Overall, I was very impressed. The toy is still plenty powerful enough to do its job and it’s comfortable and completely non-threatening. I’d heartily recommend this to anyone who’d fed up of huge toys, or those looking to make their first vibrator purchase. It’s a great quality vibrator and is a pretty good price.

Sex Toy Review: Ann Summers Touch Shaft Vibrator

Ann Summers Touch Shaft Vibrator

Ann Summers is pretty much Rampant Rabbit Central, so although rabbits are fab, it was nice to receive something different. And the Touch Shaft Vibrator is certainly that.

The idea of the toy is that you just switch it on, put it up ‘there’ and let it work its magic. As you can see from the above pic, there are three bands which are touch sensitive, so the deeper it goes, the more intense the vibrations. It’s cool, clever and waterproof. You’ll also need 4xAAA batteries.

The only downside is that its design means that it’s not ideal for clitoral stimulation as if the bands aren’t surrounded by something, they’re not activated. So even when its switched on, if you’re just holding the black part at the bottom, nothing happens. Of course you could hold the vibe in such a way that your hand activates it,  but it may not be the most comfortable.

This is a high quality, unique toy – but if you’re a clitoral orgasm kind of a gal, you might be better off sticking with a trusty rabbit.

Head on over to Ann Summers and check out their range.

Product Review: Ann Summers Zoe Necklace Top

Ann Summers Zoe Necklace TopThis going out/partywear top from Ann Summers is gorgeous, as you can see from the photo. It’s a lovely colour, and best of all, it’s flattering.

For girls like me, who want to hide their tummy and show off their boobs a little without going overboard, this is perfect. The material hangs loosely, hiding your lumps and bumps, whilst accentuating your cleavage.

I particularly like this top because it’s flexible. You can arrange it so you’re showing just a tad of cleavage, like the girl in the photo, or you can pull it further up or down, dependent on how brave you are! Naturally, you’ll have to make sure you’re wearing the right bra, because any lines will show through the material.

It also comes with the clip on necklace, but I wasn’t too keen. Despite some serious untangling and straightening out before clipping it to the top, the gems still kept twisting when they were attached, and it just didn’t look right. So I wore it without.

If you’re looking for something that’s not too expensive and is girly, yet smart and flattering, you can’t go far wrong with this top. You can wear it with jeans, leggings (or jeggings!), trousers, skirts, etc – it’s pretty versatile so as long as the colours don’t clash, you’ll look (and feel) amazing.

Convinced? Grab one from Ann Summers’ site – currently on offer at time of writing!

Sex Toy Review: Ann Summers Rampant Rabbit Touch Vibrator

Rampant Rabbit Touch

The peeps over at Ann Summers sent me another one of their new toys to play with – The Rampant Rabbit Touch. It’s exclusive to Ann Summers, too, so you won’t find it elsewhere.

As you can see from the photo to the left, the way it works is that it’s got three bands running down the shaft. That means when it’s “in”, the bands sense it and the vibrations grow more intense. Sounds great, right?

Hmm… well, it’s OK. Firstly, the shaft is quite large, so you’re going to need to get the lube out, ladies. Great for size queens. The vibrations, as promised, are incredibly intense, but I think it’s at the detriment of the vibrations in the bunny ears. This, naturally, is a problem if you’re looking for a clitoral orgasm. There’s so much going on in the shaft that there’s not much left for the ears! You can’t turn the shaft off and just have the ears alone, either.

It’s also damn noisy. No sneaky wanks with this Rabbit,  I’m afraid.

Stats:

  • Functions: 7
  • Total Length: 7.5 inches/19cms
  • Insertable Length: 5.5 inches/14cms
  • Circumference: 5 inches/12.5cms
  • Batteries: 4xAAA, not included


Overall, it’s of the usual high quality Ann Summers standard, but the reality (unless you come very easily) is that there’s been too much concentration on the shaft and none on the clitoral stimulator. It wouldn’t be so bad if you could turn the shaft off, but it’s not an option. Plus, the noise resembles that of an airplane. Sadly, disappointing.

Sex Toy Review: Ann Summers Rampant Rabbit G-Pulse Remote

G-Pulse Remote VibratorI’m lucky (or should that be mucky) enough to have been chosen by Ann Summers to get an exclusive sneak preview of their latest Rampant Rabbit! Not released until 7th June 2010, the Rampant Rabbit G-Pulse Remote claims to be the ultimate rabbit experience.

It looks similar in design to the original [intlink id=”1736″ type=”post”]Rampant Rabbit G-Pulse[/intlink], except the base is a different colour and this version comes with a remote control! As well as the remote, the new addition to the rabbit family has the following features:

  • The rabbit ears can  now be controlled independently from the vibrating shaft
  • The motors of the three internal bullets are even more powerful

The new and improved toy is excellent. I’ve seen a few remote controlled vibrators and rabbits in the past, and they’ve always seemed a little cheap and tacky, and like they’d break easily. The G-Pulse Remote, however, is typical Ann Summers – high quality and built to last. It looks good, appears to be robust and is, of course, orgasmic!

The vibe, although it has quite a large girth, is still good for small girls as the shaft is very pliable and bendy, so it feels comfortable once it’s ‘up there.’ When manoeuvred into place, the end of the shaft should be doing a lovely job of tickling your g-spot. So you ladies who are already well-versed in playing with your g-spot should find yourself cumming in no time. Those who’ve decided they’d like to experiment with finding or manipulating their g-spot, you can’t go wrong with this toy. It’s what it’s designed to do, but you’ve also got the “back up” of the bunny ears if you’d also like to experience a clitoral orgasm. Perhaps you’re even like to have a go at experiencing the ultimate orgasm – g-spot and clitoral at the same time?! If it’s going to happen to you, it’ll happen with this vibrator!

So, basically this baby is wonderful even without the remote control, but naturally having this extra element can make it so much more exciting for couples’ play! All of the controls are still on the base of the vibrator, but they’re repeated on the remote control, so you can use either. I think probably if you’re on your own, you’d just use the vibe as you would normally, but giving your guy (or girl) the chance to control your climax(es!) will bring a whole new dimension to fun in the bedroom.

My only criticism of the toy is that the bunny ears are a little soft, which can make it more difficult to achieve an orgasm. However, the extra power of this cool gadget should soon get you there! Just give this rabbit (and its remote) 6 AAA batteries, 4 for bunny, 2 for remote and you’ll soon be bouncing off the ceiling!

Overall I think this is a top-notch addition to Ann Summers’ Rampant Rabbit range and it will do well for them. It’s different, but not so different that girls won’t be sure if they want one. It’s also only £49.99, which is pretty good when compared to the more ‘standard’ rabbits in the range. It looks nice, feels nice… and boy, does it do the job! If you’re after a new bunny, look no further. Even if you’re not – I’d still fork out the fifty quid. So when it hits the stores and website, get your hands on one – you won’t regret it.

NB: It’s available now! Get yours here!

Sex Toy Review: Ann Summers RO-120MM Big Bullet

Ann Summers RO-120MM Big Bullet

The vital statistics:

  • 5 functions
  • Extremely powerful
  • Quiet and waterproof
  • Length 4¾” Girth 2″
  • Takes 2xAAA batteries

The Ann Summers RO-120MM Big Bullet is a fairly scary looking thing. It’s the big brother to Ann Summers’ famous silver bullet, which you’ll generally see sat by tills in the stores as the perfect add on sale. This toy, however, is much less of an impulse purchase.

At £20, the bullet isn’t cheap. However, it’s incredibly well made, with the aforementioned 5 functions, lots of power and easy-to-source batteries. To switch it on, you simply press the purple button on the end. Pressing it again will change the function. You just press once to cycle through each function. To switch it off, you press and hold the button for two seconds.

I have to disagree with the ‘quiet’ feature mentioned on the Ann Summers website. It’s quiet compared to some of your noisier rabbits, but noisier than most bullets. You could probably stifle it under your duvet – guess it depends how good the hearing is of the people you live with! Other than that, it’s a pretty good buy. It’s really very powerful and will send most women soaring to orgasm in no time. Then you’ve got the multiple options of how to play with it: anal play, foreplay, massage… the possibilities are endless. It’s a great toy for experimentation, but it also does the job it’s designed for.

Given the fact it takes batteries which are much easier to get hold of than the ones in your average bullet, I’d happily recommend this. If you’re looking for something discreet for your handbag, then I’d probably go for a smaller version, but if not – you could do much worse than this!

Product Review: Ann Summers New Swimwear

Ann Summers SwimwearAnn Summers had fab timing when they decided to send me some new swimwear to review – I go on holiday in a few weeks’ time. They kindly sent me the bikini (pictured, the briefs match the bra), which is called Paradise Beach. They also sent the cover-up skirt/dress in the photo.

Designed to be worn as either a skirt or a dress, the cover-up has a really nice shape at the front with some extra material which is great for helping cover up all those lumps and bumps!

The bikini itself is lovely – really, really pretty and sexy, and also very well made. The top is gel-filled, which obviously not all of us women need, but for those that do like an extra boost, it’s fabulous!

The pants aren’t too skimpy either, so if you’re a bit conscious of your body, then don’t worry, you’re not flaunting it too much in this ensemble. And of course, if you’re feeling a bit exposed, just slip on your cover-up! You’ll be a pool/beach goddess in your lovely Ann Summers gear. Trouble is, it’s so sexy you might not manage to get to the beach/pool, as your fella might drag you back to bed!

Another bonus is that as the bikini is purchased in two separate parts, it’s more likely to fit! Bikinis which just come in a size 14/16 drive me mad, as I’d need a larger top and smaller bottoms – this way, you get exactly what size you need!

Details as follows (prices correct at time of writing, 13/4/2010):

Ann Summers Sexy Cover-Up: £25 – available here
Ann Summers Paradise Beach Bikini Top: £22 – available here
Ann Summers Paradise Beach Bikini Brief: £12 – available here

A beautiful set for under £60 – what more could a girl want?
