Ever since I was introduced to the world of sex toys, I have always used them for the obvious reason: sexual pleasure. As an advocate of sex positivity, sex toys allowed me to know myself and my body more, which helped me boost my sexual confidence.
But it was not until I owned a clit stimulator that I personally experienced the other benefits aside from fulfilling my sexual needs.
Sex toys promote good health
I was experiencing insomnia in the past few weeks and despite purposely tiring myself in the day or even increasing the dosage of my melatonin supplement, I still can’t get my eyes shut.
Studies suggest that masturbation/having orgasm helps in releasing hormones that can aid sleep. In my quest for natural remedies, I decided to give it a try.
So when I got my hands on We-Vibe’s Melt, a clit stimulator that uses air pressure technology, I tried using it mostly before bedtime. True enough, it took just a while to help me finally doze off.
How does We-Vibe Melt work?
Compared to other sex toys, the We-Vibe Melt is pretty discreet: it uses innovative pressure wave technology to arouse a woman’s clitoris or C-spot. Since it uses air for stimulation, the sound that comes off is not as loud as a vibrator.
The product is very easy to use–just place it right above the clit. It has 12 intensity levels, and it can be controlled with + or — buttons in the device, or through the app We-Connect. It looks small, but it guarantees big orgasms that will make you melt.
While it is advertised as a toy for couples, it can also be used for self-pleasure–a wild treat for those with a very sensitive clit a.k.a. me.
Perfect for beginners
The very first sex toys I owned are vibrating dildos, and I admit they can be intense for a first-timer, especially for those who are still intimidated in trying sex toys.
When I tried the We-Vibe Melt, I really thought: “Where have you been all my life?!” I wished I knew about it sooner.
We-Vibe Melt is the brand’s first dedicated pressure-wave/suction toy. It is less invasive yet very powerful. Perfect for beginners who are not comfortable with penetrative toys yet but want to achieve a mind-blowing orgasm. Yup, this little thing can blow your mind.
It looks and feels premium
This is the most expensive toy I have owned to date, and I can say that you really get what you pay for. It’s silky smooth and has an easy grip. The quality is superb, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to malfunction any sooner. Not to mention, it’s also easy to clean and dry.
The buttons are easy to navigate too, and it comes with a magnetic charger that’s easy to remove.
One of my favorite things about this We-Vibe Melt is it’s waterproof–so yes, it’s safe to do the deed in the shower!
It’s a great option whether you’re single, or with a partner
While the product description says it’s made for couples, it’s satisfying enough for a solo sesh. I got multiple orgasms after using it for several minutes, and I didn’t even get a penetration!
The app also has a “Connect to Partner” feature, which is great news for LDR couples. Through this feature, the partner can control the We-Vibe Melt, whether they’re beside you or they’re on the other side of the world. There’s also a wide range of pressure levels to choose from, and believe me, it’s fun exploring the different sensations.
Is this your PlayMatch?
For the high-end quality, guaranteed sexual satisfaction, and of course, its health benefits, We-Vibe Melt is a must-buy.
The only thing I didn’t like about it is isn’t as quiet as it claimed to be. The higher vibration modes can be quite loud. But if you’re worrying someone might hear you from the other room, here’s a tip: turn up your room’s air-conditioning/electric fan plus air purifier and their sounds will overpower the sound of the device.
We-Vibe Melt is priced at US$ 149.00, quite pricey compared to other brands that provide similar products in the market, but for a product that will last long, the extra bucks won’t hurt.
Overall, We-Vibe Melt is a premium product that I would definitely recommend to my friends. I am actually excited to try other lineups of We-Vibe after this because when it comes to quality and aesthetics, the brand really delivers well.
This stimulating ring is divine, I can’t imagine date nights without it
Who would’ve thought date nights can be sexier and spicier?
The following is intended for readers 18+
Cock rings have come a long way: from plastic and metal bands to rubber silicones that vibrate. Now, there’s a cock ring that elevates one’s game. And It’s definitely not the same vibrating, stimulating ring we’ve known.
Meet the We-Vibe Bond, setting out to be a revolutionary cock ring that you can wear outside the bedroom.
But wait, how is it revolutionary?
Vibrating cock rings have been in the market for as long as I can remember. The very first one I’ve owned was a Satisfyer Royal One, which I bought using a coupon from Lauvette — a local adult shop — gifted to me by my confidante on my 25th birthday.
The SF Royal One is different for obvious reasons. First, it’s worn when you’re playing with yourself or when you’re having sex with someone like any other cock ring, vibrating or not. Second, you can’t wear it discreetly since it’s extremely tight when worn around an erect penis.
Meanwhile, the We-Vibe Bond is a wearable ring that you can wear underneath your pants. It wouldn’t hurt your gigglestick and no one would notice you’re wearing one.
Luckily, the restrictions started easing up when the We-Vibe Bond arrived. I started responding to suitors wanting to take me out on a date simply because I missed dressing up and having actual conversations. Also, I’m eager to test the newest cock ring out in the open.
Worn like a ring
Let’s discuss the specifics first. Right off the bat, you’ll know the We-Vibe Bond is a cock ring. Except it’s curved and looks more oval than round.
This is because the ring is meant to be worn around your penis without creating a bulge that would warrant attention. So as not to arouse any suspicions that you’re having discreet vibrations underneath. And also, the shape aims to stimulate both the penis, your testicles, and the perineum.
The silicone felt soft to the skin. It’s comfortable, but the material used attracts lint from your underwear or any fabric you use under your pants.
Wearing it would be easy as hell since the clasp uses a quick-release system. Per We-Vibe, the Bond uses a Custom Fit Link that will fit almost any penis size.
I tried it with my three fingers and of course, my own candystick, so it fits. But it seems impossible to clip it together with my testicle. I mean, I’ve tried but it hurts and was more uncomfortable than pleasurable. And I don’t even consider myself well-endowed.
The workaround I had was hanging it around the shaft, sitting above my scrotum, which would fit well should there be an erection. Although, wearing it just around your gospel pipe is somewhat loose. And you won’t feel the whole vibration it can offer.
Before we talk about vibrations, let’s discuss how to set up the We-Vibe Bond. The brand has a dedicated app for all its products called We-Connect, downloadable via the Play Store or the App Store.
You can pair the wearable via Bluetooth but it can only be done through We-Connect. Once connected, you can check the toy’s settings which include its battery status, the intensity for the vibrations, and a timeout feature in case you want it to automatically stop.
There are options to create your own vibrations, Vibes for short, through the wavy button found on the Interface. This lets you access ten vibrations to play with: Vibrate, Pulse, Wave, Cha cha cha, Tease, Tempo, Step, Heartbeat, Massage, and Ramp. My personal favorite is Wave and I make sure to modify the vibrations to their highest level to match the pulsation I want.
There’s an option to have your partner control it for you, but the app has been failing all the time in that feature. Other than that, there isn’t really anything you can do on We-Connect.
Luckily, the We-Vibe Bond comes with a physical remote so you don’t have to rely on the app. You can use it or hand it to your date so that he/she/they can control the pulsations.
Secret moments in a crowded room
I’ve worn the Bond a couple of times outside my bedroom. When I was doing my groceries, and when I went out on dates with my suitors.
It doesn’t work like other vibrating cock rings since the vibration strength is a little bit subtle. But that’s the whole point of it. This one is used so you can get in the mood. And probably do foreplay if you’re really feeling frisky.
Most of the time, I forget I’m even wearing the ring until it starts vibrating. The sudden jolt in your private parts, especially when you’re sitting, gives a different kind of pleasure. It makes you want to jump out of the chair and hop on your partner right away.
The subtle sensations aroused me. The silence, patience, and the anticipation — tension built up and I’ve been shaking from holding back. That’s the effect the Bond gave me and it has been a test of how I respond to my desires.
Its whisper-quiet vibrations are like a well-kept secret, but only to you and your partner (if you have one). I kept biting my lip the whole time I had it on, and I just wanted to forget the dinner and head out into the car.
I had an erection and it’s quite difficult to hide it when your shirt is tucked in. This is best worn when you have a large shirt on, in case you’re worried about your bulge.
But if you think you can have a hands-free release through this ring, that’s where you get it wrong. To an extent, the We-Vibe Bond can help you with edging. But you’d still have to trust your familiar pal — your very own hands — to give you a La Petite Mort.
The device can last up to two hours, but I can assure you, you’re not going to wait that long after all the passionate build-up. When the Bond runs out of juice, simply charge it through its magnetic charger. And after 90 minutes, you’re back in the game.
Is this your PlayMatch?
The We-Vibe Bond can be the perfect companion whether you’re single or in a relationship. It’s discreet so you can have a raunchy moment without anyone knowing, and you can improve your connection with your lover through teasing and subtle foreplay.
It’s also waterproof so you can have a little bit of fun on your own in the shower or the tub. Just remember that it doesn’t have strong vibrations like most toys, since the device is really for building up the tension to really enjoy the heat.
The We-Vibe Bond retails for US$ 129. Out of the box, you’ll get the wearable ring, the remote control, a magnetic USB charging cable, a quick start guide, and a black pouch to store your toy after cleaning.
Facebook Dating now has audio calls for daters
And two new matching features
Dating apps are getting more advanced. Before, prospective daters had to rely on simple text messaging and often wonky pairing algorithms. Now, finding a partner has never been easier. Some apps have even partnered with complementary services to provide the most seamless way to go on a date. Though not the most popular dating service out there, Facebook Dating is packing in more features for daters.
With a new update rolling out, Facebook Dating now allows users to start audio conversations or “audio dates” for people they match with. Users can initiate a call, and it sends an invite to the other person.
Lucky Pick: We’ve heard from people that the preferences they set aren’t always hard and fast, and to cut down on “the one that got away,” Facebook Dating’s new Lucky Pick feature enables daters to consider other compatible candidates who may be outside their typical preferences.
— Alexandru Voica (alexvoica.eth) 💀 (@alexvoica) August 10, 2021
Facebook Dating also has a new Match Anywhere feature. Since the advent of remote working, people can find themselves working in two different cities in a single work week. Match Anywhere allows users to select up to two additional locations for matches. For example, they can find matches in their city of residence and in a separate city where they work.
Finally, a new Lucky Pick feature expands the service’s matching capabilities. Though users select the traits that they find attractive, Lucky Pick can potentially match them with people they don’t usually include in their searches if the algorithm deems them compatible with one another.
Google is banning ‘sugar daddy’ dating apps
Starting September 1
Dating apps are a dime a dozen nowadays. Regular daters have the more popular apps available including Tinder and Bumble. Niche daters also have their own set of apps for their own preferences. Did you know that there’s a dating app for farmers, for example? Apparently, despite the wide variety of apps, Google is less than thrilled over a very specific category of the market: sugar-daddy dating apps.
First reported by Android Police, Google is issuing new policies to cover the strange niche. And yes, they do exist. As the name implies, these dating apps are specifically made for daters looking for their own sugar daddy or sugar mommy (or vice versa).
In dating parlance, sugar daddy and mommies refer to rich daters who spoil their partners using their wealth in return for physical affection. The relationship type shouldn’t be an issue in itself. (“Different folks, different strokes,” as the saying goes.) However, Google certainly has issues with these apps.
According to the new policy, there will be “new restrictions on sexual content, specifically prohibiting compensated sexual relationships (i.e., sugar dating).” The policy will go into effect starting September 1.
Google has always been moderately tough on sexual content. Though looking up “sex” on the Play Store elicits a swath of tools and apps, the online catalog never outrightly includes any sexual content. Google potentially dislikes the “compensated” part of sugar-daddy dating apps, which can link it to a form of prostitution.
That said, Google seems to be all-in on less transactional dating apps like Tinder. Instead of propagating relationships through transactions, apps like Tinder do promote finding a true partner.
