Product Review: Dewcibox Subscription Box (@dewcibox)

686720bdb16d72c1caef8175e8275fe5

Dewcibox is a new product to the market which is based mainly around a subscription model – i.e. buyers can subscribe and get a box sent direct to their door each month, which contains a bunch of sexy products. One-off purchases are also available if you just wanted to try it out, or perhaps buy a box as a gift for someone.

The box I received was the April 2016 subscription, and it contained the following:

  • Zuyosa Sexual Vitality Supplement for Men
  • Ayumi: Sensual Massage, Bath & Body Oil
  • PlayBoy Condoms: 2 Premium Latex Condoms
  • Lovehoney: Magic Bullet 10 Function Vibrator
  • Licx: Mix for Her
  • Funkin: Mojito Mixer
  • Milk Chocolate Hearts x 2

My first impressions were very favourable – as seen in the image above, the box looks classy, and is also well-made and well-presented. On opening it, I found my products wrapped in black tissue paper and nestled on a bed of black shredded paper. Looking good. The information leaflets that came with the Dewcibox were also physically of a high standard and were well-designed. However, the information itself could have done with a proofread for grammar, punctuation and consistency. Many folks wouldn’t have even noticed this, but the editor in me is always there, unfortunately, and I felt that this let the overall product down, given it’s otherwise of such a high standard.

The toys and other items themselves were also of a high standard, and there was plenty of variety, too. They’ve obviously been well thought out and carefully chosen.

Overall, this is an intriguing idea, and one I suspect will enjoy success. Keeping things interesting and fresh for those that do decide to subscribe on an ongoing basis could be a challenge, however. This is a product I’d recommend for sex toy newbies – or maybe someone heading off for a sexy weekend away or a honeymoon. For those who are much more into their toys, I’m not sure this could really offer them anything – possibly the offering is too tame.

I do think the pricing and potential saving is appealing, and the production value is high. The only let down is the errors on the printed literature. A tiny point in the scheme of things, but the company has obviously put in a hell of a lot of work here, so to make such a basic error is a shame. Also, to really round out the offering, I think it’d be a nice touch to also include batteries for any toys in the box, if they don’t already come with them. Imagine buying a box, putting it in a weekend bag and heading off, only to find at the crucial moment that you need a battery? Not good.

Product Review: Whiz Freedom

Wizz FreedomNot my usual kind of product review, I know, but nevertheless I think women will love the Whiz Freedom. You see, it’s a gadget that means you can whiz/wee/pee/urinate/whatever-word-you-use in public without getting your bottom out.

Sh! Women’s Erotic Emporium sent it to me to test out – along with some more erotic items which I shall review at a later date.

Basically, you hold the Whiz firmly against your lady parts and let your tinkle go. It’s great for people who go walking and camping, and even for avoiding having to sit on yucky public toilets!

It’s tricky to get the hang of, more because once you first try and use it, you’re convinced it won’t work and that you’re going to wet yourself. So my advice is to use it in the shower or over your own toilet at home just to get used to the sensation. Trust me, if you’re holding it currently, your wee will go where it’s meant to!

It really is a fab idea, particularly for someone like me who can’t always find a thick enough bush to hide behind (no rude comments please!) when I’m out walking in the countryside. You can simply ‘go’ somewhere as discreet as possible. The Freedom is covered in antibacterial stuff and it repels liquid, so basically you can use it, then give it a good shake and put it away. You can buy proper bags for them, but to be honest there’s no reason you couldn’t just pop it in a small make up bag or something (one of its own I mean, I’m not proposing you put it in with your lippy!) to keep it out of the way. Once you get home, of course, you can give it a proper wash – in the washing machine if you wish. Yes, the Whiz Freedom is made from a material which will stand temperatures up to 40 degrees. So although the product is ‘clean’ as soon as you’ve shaken it, you can get that extra piece of mind when you’re back at home.

So, if like me, you’re out and about in the countryside a lot or despise using public toilets, then the Whiz Freedom is a great buy. It’s just £9.99 from the Sh! Women’s Erotic Emporium website; alternatively if you’re in the London area you can pop into their store – visit their site for more details.
