6 sex toys to help women achieve pleasure like no other

It’s time for self-care!

The following is intended for readers 18+

Self-care isn’t always about massages, hot salt, or bubble bath. It’s not also just about getting in shape, dressing up, or having time out with the important people in your life. Sometimes, self-care means having ample rest and indulging in different forms of relaxation. For instance (and in my own opinion), playing with yourself — also known as masturbation — is also a form of relaxation.

We tend to ignore the mental health benefits masturbation provides, and how it’s a great tool for de-stressing. It releases dopamine, a feel-good chemical relating to pleasure, which puts us in a good mood. In addition, it helps us sleep better, feel better about ourselves, and of course, reduce stress.

This is the reason why we’ve crafted a list of gadgets to help you achieve maximum pleasure. Here they are:

Rose Gold Crave Vesper Necklace – US$ 79

For the bold type, Crave’s Vesper Necklace is both an elegant jewelry and a strong, slim vibrator. Its body, tip, and chain is made of high polish stainless steel designed to make a statement. This vibrator has four speeds and two modes — pulsing and constant — which guarantees a beautiful experience without making a sound. If rose gold isn’t your thing, there are two other finishes: Silver and 24k gold.

Lelo Mia 2 – US$ 85

This unassuming device which looks like a lipstick is actually a massager. Made with discretion and secrecy in mind, the Lelo Mia 2 allows you to indulge in your desires without attracting so much attention. It looks perfect in your purse or bedside drawer, allowing you to be discreet in your quest to achieve pleasure. Its sculpted tip targets clitoris for fast and intense climaxes.

Tango by We-Vibe – US$ 90

Bigger isn’t always better. Tango by We-Vibe is a pocket-sized, powerful vibrator that you can bring wherever you go. Its slanted tip delivers intense, quiet, and precise vibrations while the flat edge provides massage. It’s waterproof and has eight vibration modes for you to choose from, so you can get your pleasure discreetly, anywhere.

Hot Octopuss Queen Bee – US$ 119

It’s high time you feel like a queen! Hot Octopuss’ Queen Bee is a clitoral stimulator, offering two surfaces to match your mood — you can choose between gentle or intense. It utilizes their patented PulsePlate technology which uses powerful oscillations to provide a different kind of pleasure. This toy is also waterproof so you can do you while in the bath tub or shower.

Le Wand Petite Rechargeable Massager, Rose Gold – US$ 135

Looks like a mic more than a wand, Le Wand’s Petite Rechargeable Massager features a body-safe silicone head, a flexible neck, and a handle packed with easy-to-use controls. Even though it’s small and travel-friendly, it packs so much power, featuring 10 ultra-powerful vibration intensities with six vibration patterns to choose from. It comes with a convenient travel case and a travel-lock, so you can bring this wellness device wherever you go.

Womanizer Pro – US$ 199

Fancy having a luxurious toy? Womanizer Pro makes you lust with its sparkling Swarovski elements. Utilizing their unique Pleasure Air Technology, you can indulge in touch-less stimulation — a powerful combination of suction and pressure waves — which brings a completely new orgasmic experience. Additionally, you can control how fast you want it to be through its 12 levels of intensity. Did I also mention it’s waterproof and has a silent mode?

Let’s be sex positive, everyone! Playing with yourself is a normal, human thing to do and unlike the myths being spread out when we were younger, no you won’t get blind from doing it. Now go and get lost in the deep end, and paddle your pink canoe. You do you, girl!

AMX XP 60: The most convenient USB-C PD charger

One brick, four devices

Published

on

MicroUSB used to be a must-have on all phones a few years back. With rising megapixels and resolutions, the industry also moved on to a new port called USB-C. It’s easier to use thanks to a reversible connector and also carries more power as well as data. OnePlus was among the first to incorporate the port and pretty much every other brand has made the shift.

Though, Apple is yet to make up its mind. The Cupertino giant has equipped the MacBook’s with just USB-C ports and removed all older lesser beings. Unfortunately, the brand still uses a lightning port for the iPhones and that means I need to carry at least two charging wires — one for the MacBook and one for the iPhone.

And, if you’re carrying along any other Android phone or accessory, it’s a bare minimum rule to also carry a microUSB wire. With so many different ports, how do you charge your devices on the go? Each will need a separate charging brick that not only takes space but also weighs you down.

I’ve been using AMX’s XP 60 charger for a couple of weeks now and it has definitely become one of my favorite accessories of 2019. The brick has one USB-C port and three USB-A ports along with a tiny blue-colored indicator showing successful power delivery.

Obviously, finding a brick with multiple ports is not groundbreaking. However, the USB-C port on this charger supports PD charging, a standardized protocol for faster charging. PD charging doesn’t require any proprietary gear, so you can simply plug your mobile, laptop, accessory, or even power bank.

On top of that, PD optimizes power management across multiple peripherals so each device will draw only the power it requires for the current process.

The rest of the USB-A ports support 18W fast charging cheap. And it was pretty much every phone shipping with fast charging tech, it’s always nice to have more options. I’ve quickly managed to charge my iPhone 8, Redmi Note 8 Pro, Mi A3, and MacBook Air simultaneously from just one power outlet.

Considering the price of INR 1,199 (US$ 17), this is a steal. OEM chargers sometimes cost more than that and are often limited. However, the charging brick feels a little flimsy. Some improvements to the overall build quality would be highly appreciated.

Casetify’s collaboration with Pangram Pangram is inspired by travel

For those diagnosed with a serious case of wanderlust

Published

Nothing inspires us to keep hustling like the places we want to travel to — whether that’s a remote island or a concrete jungle. Packing and carrying a heavy suitcase, going through airport security and passport control, waiting at the airport and finding nothing but overpriced food — all these are so much more exciting than going through everyday commute and the routine of office work.

If nothing feeds your soul like a travel adventure, Casetify’s collaboration with type foundry Pangram Pangram is made for you. It’s inspired by the journey through the airport, from luggage scan tags to boarding passes, and airport restaurant bills.

Customize your iPhone case by choosing an airport and adding your name — et voila! You now have your very own luggage scan tag case. As of writing there are more than 30 cities to choose from, and here are some of our favorites:

New York

Paris

London

Boston

Jeju

San Francisco

Singapore

Berlin

Shanghai

Casetify is adding more cities based on the demand, so if you don’t see your favorite destination or hometown let them know on Instagram. The cases are available for iPhone 7 and up, including the new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max starting at US$ 35. Cases for Airpods 1 and 2, as well as Apple Watch bands for Series 1-4 are also available.

Sony’s WI-1000XM2 joins their noise cancelling lineup

A new superb option

Published

on

Sony’s noise-cancelling headphones are one of, if not the best in the market right now and today they’re adding another option to that already amazing lineup. Joining the WH-1000XM3 and WF-1000XM3 is the WI-1000XM2 — a neckband headphone.

Curiously, Sony didn’t skip the number two unlike what they did with the WF-series. Which just goes to show that the company has a looooong way to go in terms of properly naming their devices. However, that’s about the only knock on Sony’s headphones.

Noise cancelling excellence

The WI-1000XM2 will also be equipped with Sony’s HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1. If the performance of the WH-1000XM3 and WF-1000XM3 are any indication, this means we’re again getting perhaps the best noise cancelling tech you can buy right now.

The neckband headphone is also promising the same quality of sound as its sibling with its HD Hybrid Driver System which includes a 9mm dynamic driver and Balanced Armature driver. It also has Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HXTM) that upscales compressed digital music files including MP3 formats, to bring you closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio.

It’s also equipped with the same bells and whistles found on its siblings like support for Google Assistant and Adaptive Sound Control.

Designed for comfort

The neckband is made of silicone for flexible fitiing and weighs approximately 44 g. Inside the box you get different options for the earbuds so you should have no trouble finding the perfect fit.

It promises up to 10 hours of continuous play time. When it runs out, you’ll be back up and running quickly as 10 minutes of charging should give you about 80 minutes of play time.

When you need to tuck it away, the magnetic earbuds snap together easily and can be stored inside the accompanying carrying case that can also hold the audio cable, USB charging cable, and plug adapter for in-flight entertainment.

Pricing and availability

The Sony WI-1000XM2 will retail for SG$ 449 (US$330) and will be available at selected Sony Stores, Sony Centers and Sony authorized dealers starting December 2019.
