Mini Gyrating Thumper

This Gyrating Thumper was sent to me for review as this months Sexpert review from CalExotics.

I was hoping it was going to be as thumpy as its name.

The packaging arrived in the CalExotics glossy cardboard box, showing the product clearly and brightly on the front, no hiding this little beauty away. It is then sealed in a clear transparent plastic bag for hygiene reasons.

This little waterproof compact vibrator is made of solid ABS plastic with satin touch PU coat, it actually feels like a smooth silicone. It has 2 ripples leading to a small rounded head. 

The 2 undulations are quite extreme and the head is beautifully smooth and rounded, perfect for pinpoint stimulation. The Gyrating thumper does not flex at all meaning you can add as much pressure as you wish.

 A silver plated ring at the base, adds a more luxury look to the toy. 

Full length is 4.9 inches long.
Insertable length is 3.75 inches long,
1.5 inches in diameter at its widest,
The head is exactly an inch in diameter.
Weight is 3.4oz or 0.1kg.

This little massager is powered by  2 AAA batteries which sit within a solid battery holder, this prevents any rattling noises and gives the toy a really solid feel.

 Solid battery compartment with a bayonet screwtop cap with a white opaque rubber ring seal to make it waterproof.

This small vibrator with 3 increasing speeds is controlled by a small clear rubber button on its base. I did initially feel this was going to light up being a transparent rubber, found on some LED buttons, but it doesn't..ho hum.

I have to say I'm really impressed by this little toys vibrations, the name is Gyrating thumper so I was sort of expecting it to give a thump or thrust...well for such a small clit toy this little toy has some kick. I cant say that it gyrates it doesn't, but it does have a heavier motor inside and you can feel it give quite a deep resonance and really rumbly vibrations compared to most buzzy toys of this size. To turn off you simply scroll through the 3 speeds.
I must admit as it has this unusual thump to it I would have loved a pulse and escalation pattern as I feel this would have brought out the thump feel more.

Super Sound Sleuth 

As you know by now I take actual decibel readings on all my vibratory toys, so you can see an actual physical measurement of sound, no guessing what I mean or my personal preference its a hard reading of its actual sound levels.
I take all my decibel readings in my spare room of my 500 year old cottage as the walls are over a foot thick and its got a real silence to the room, perfect as a sound room or dungeon...! ;-)
I then take the decibel reading exactly 6 inches from every toy. I also take the reading of the room itself to have a baseline.

Measurements for the Mini Gyrating Thumper

Ambient measurement  - 33 dB
Lowest setting 47 dB
Highest setting 48.5 dB

Its really discreet and the vibes cannot be heard through a door or wall even on full speed. Its beautifully discreet.

Here is a basic chart to help you see my readings a bit easier.

When I first got it out the box I found the satin feel PU coat feels beautifully silky smooth and warms quickly to your skin. It also has a gorgeous luxury weighty feel to it and it sits comfortably in the palm of your hand making it easy to control.
I loved the bright almost luminous orange colour; its a nice change to the standard colours available, but you can also get it in your favourite purple and pink too. I've never been a lover of small toys but this one I've grown quite fond of.

The inch wide head is perfect for pinpoint stimulation and I loved having this over my nipples and especially my clit and you can insert this toy up to approximately 3.75 inches. This little guy certainly made me orgasm quickly with the combination of the smooth firm feel and the rumbly vibes and the fact the larger base enables you to hold and control it easily, it was a slower orgasm for me not a quickie and I can always enjoy more vibrations and power, but there was enough to get me there, which many other small toys cant do.
For me I enjoyed the firmness and inflexibility meaning I could add alot of pressure on my clit and other areas, this feels amazing.

TIP: I also found it lays perfectly between your labia enabling you to wear it in your knickers for a little while and grind a bit onto it, obviously not ideal to go out or walk around the supermarket but a great size and shape for some panty play while relaxing.

Anal play
This gyrations thumper is the perfect shape for anal play but I would suggest only using the small head to tease and dip into the anus; not to fully insert as its doesn't have a flared base and with lots of waterbased lube and fluids, it gets extremely slippy and could easily slip right up inside if you are not careful. I'm sure you will not want a trip to A&E with a bright orange vibe up your butt or maybe you do who am I to judge ;)

Cleaning and Maintenance
This little vibe cleans easily under warm running water and perfect to rinse in the bath or shower, being so smooth its easy to maintain. The PU coat is so smooth and hardly collects any dust like silicone toys and is a joy to clean. Simply spray with a good sextoy cleaner, allow to dry and store in a make-up bag or toy bag to prevent scratches and keep it away from other silicone toys.

Available in 3 gorgeous colours.

Im really impressed with this luxury feel vibe its not the strongest vibe I have but its not the weakest either and its most certainly up there with my stronger battery toys. The rounded head is perfect for all sorts of foreplay and any pinpoint stimulation.
It feels so different to most small toys out there with its thumpy rumbliness; I'm sure this will suit most people. Its not gyrating as the name suggests but its certainly unusual.  Its perfect as a beginners toy and also fun addition for the advance toy user too, even if its just for its fun colours, let alone its unique feel vibes. Its an affordable fun vibe to add to any toybox.

Fun colours,
Rumbly vibes,
Batteries last well,
Great shape,

I would have loved a few patterns to give more "thump" as in its name.

Choose from 2 more bright colours.

All my thanks goes to the lovely girls at CalExotic Novelties for sending me this gorgeous toy for this review!

Key Collection Ceres Lace Silicone Vibrator

As soon as I saw this brand new Key Collection I fell in love with them, the collection is made of the most gorgeous excellent quality silicone.
Plus the fact I'm a huge fan of Jopen!

So I was excited to find out Sextoys UK had sent me this beautiful turquoise Key Ceres lace for this months round of testing.

I was also lucky enough to receive 2 other Key Collection products from Jopen themselves,

The Key collection Comet and the Vela.
So I can give you some great photo comparisons to help you find the right Key toy for your inner door!.

Yet again Jopen have come up trumps for their luxury packaging. It arrives in a cardboard box divided into 2, the box is colour coordinated depending on which one you have chosen. Mine is the beautiful new Turquoise, a welcome change from pinks and purples.

The box has an outer slip box which finishes 3/4 way down, a clever touch as you still have the name etc when the top slips off to reveal the inner box.

 The top part of the inner box has a small satin ribbon pull which fits through the outer box hole keeping them firmly together, its not really needed but a nice touch.

 The inner box then open like a book to reveal your gorgeous key toy, in my case the stunning Ceres lace.
The box although beautiful it isn't entirely discreet it has a lovely image of the toy on the front and clearly states Ceres Lace massager; the word massager may get you out of trouble if someone sees it though.

This beautiful new luxury collection is designed and produced by Jopen and this Ceres Lace along with a few of the other in this collection really caught my eye because of the extreme texturing along with the stunning bright blue colouration.

 Button controller

This standard shaped waterproof vibrator is made of soft and luxurious body safe silicone on its main body and shaft. The solid, inflexible shaft tapers out into a small baseball bat shape vibe with the end being much larger giving a width of 1.5 inches.
It has a full length of 7.5 inches long with an insertable length of  5.25inches.

The base has the most beautiful glass-like effect designer controller. The base has the Key logo embossed into the stainless alloy end which also doubles as the button controller for the 7 patterns.
I have to say this glass-effect end is absolutely beautiful and really adds a touch a luxury to this Key range.
 It also comes with a black soft satin lint free storage bag.

With the key Logo embroidered onto the label, a nice luxury touch.

 Also inside the box comes a Ceres user guide with an easy to read pattern diagram.

The Ceres Lace vibrator is powered by 2 AA batteries.

 The base unscrews with a bayonet fitting and the batteries fit end to end within the toy.

 Inside is a new nifty idea that Jopen have come up with to include a thin plastic tube to enclose the batteries inside to lessen the noise.

 This plastic tube makes a huge difference in noise too, without the tube its like a drill and is the noisiest toy I have ever heard, because it allows the batteries to jiggle around inside vibrating against the inside plastic of the Ceres.
With this plastic tube in it keeps the batteries secure and tight preventing this rattling.

The Vibrations of the Ceres are middling in-between rumbly and buzzy and Jopen have managed to combine both buzzy and rumbly patterns within 1 toy which is genius!

My favorite is the Pulse and Throb, the high is too buzzy to make me orgasm by itself, but the pulse and Throb have a lower frequency pattern which works perfectly for me. The vibrations are definitely stronger in the head but travel well down the shaft.

Super Sound Sleuth 

As you know by now I take actual decibel readings on all my vibratory toys, so you can see an actual physical measurement of sound, no guessing what I mean or my personal preference its a hard reading of its actual sound levels.
I take all my decibel readings in my spare room of my 500 year old cottage as the walls are over a foot thick and its got a real silence to the room, perfect as a sound room or dungeon...! ;-)
I then take the decibel reading exactly 6 inches from every toy. I also take the reading of the room itself to have a baseline.

Ambient measurement  - 32.9 dB
Lowest setting 45.3 dB muffled as if inserted,  63dB holding base-this is loud!
Highest setting 59.3 dB muffled as if inserted, 71dB holding base - extremely loud.

Well this was a surprise as the box and details all say whisper quiet; and it is but ONLY once inserted, if you are just holding this toy to try the settings you will most certainly be heard through a door, wall or even next street, but hold the shaft as if inserted it goes down dramatically as you can see by my measurements.
The user manual even quotes 30dB which is quieter than my silent room measurement meaning it couldn't possibly be 30dB.
Obviously not expecting a reviewer to measure it lol, but its possible my motor maybe slightly looser than some.....maybe???
I fell in love with the Ceres lace because Im a girl who loves her textures and the Ceres has the most extreme textures I've seen in any toy I have ever tried.
The heavy embossing pattern with its lines interconnected with small half circles is almost 2mm high all over the shaft and adding to that the silicone is extremely grippy you will need a ton of waterbased lube, my favourite (Give Lubes Premiere aqua gel).
Well I certainly wasn't disappointed I wanted heavy textures...and I got them...eeep! But actually there was too much texture...I know...us girls are never happy, be careful what you wish for , you could have too much of a good thing. Dont get me wrong gently using the shaft to massage your clit and labia is out of this world and if your a girl like me who hates smooth toys and needs something to feel, you need to try it. But for me it was a bit too much, I feel if the texture was half the height it may have been just perfect.
It takes me alot longer to insert this toy because of the extra textures and the super grippy silicone, I needed a ton of lube and alot of extra play to use this comfortably. Once inserted however it feels gorgeous and needs little movement to feel the amazing textures. This for me was great as I rarely ever feel texturing inside.
Gently thrusting with this was a huge turn on and with the rumbly pattern of the Pulse it felt incredible. Using this toy takes me a while to get there, but as they say its a fun journey. For me its not a quickie toy. If I want that I'll grab my Lelo Large smart wand and I'm there in seconds...yes seconds not minutes lol.
But sometimes you just want to enjoy the journey and play with something different and the Ceres is that toy, I absolutely love the feel of the textures; but I cant get too carried away or I will do a mischief to my poor clit...yowzer! 

Im a bit on the fence with this one as the luxury quality is gorgeous and the Jopen motor is quite powerful and is one of the strongest battery powered toys I own. As a power queen I'd have loved just a bit more oomph, like the new Jopen Kissing swan (review coming soon), the rechargeable Jopen toys are alot more powerful with a lower frequency rumbly motor and these work far better for me. 
I really enjoyed playing with this extreme texturing and I will do a update when I've played some more and maybe got more used to it.

Size Comparisons between the Ceres, Vela and Comet
I was also lucky enough to receive 2 more of this beautiful Key collection directly from Jopen to review so I can show you some size comparisons and add the reviews on here once I have completed them.
 In order top to bottom
The Key Comet Silicon dipped glass G-spot dildo,
The Key Ceres lace,
The Key Vela a larger girthed vibrator all of stunning quality.

Jopen really have spoilt us with their glass effect designer bases on the vibrators and the stunning quality of the most unusual Comet glass dildo.
Reviews coming soon.

Cleaning and Maintenance
This waterproof Ceres is so easy to clean under running warm water with antibacterial cleaner, I use Lelo's own sextoy cleaner as I can leave it on and dont have to rinse off, leaving it to do its magic, ideal for more textured toys.
It does take a bit longer and you need to use a new toothbrush to make sure its clean but its only an extra minute or two which is nothing, the ridges are rounded and not harsh angles. But you need to be aware to clean it properly.
Once dried you can then store it way in its own luxury satin storage bag.

I had to test this a few more times than I do for my normal toys...no not because of that...but because I'm so undecided about the Ceres for me personally. Okay I love the 1.5 inch girth its so nice not to have a skinny one inch wonder. Its solid, inflexible toy which is a huge plus for me as I hate squidgy toys. But it takes me longer to insert and I need a ton of lube with the texturing and extra grippy silicone. Its not for the quickie sexplay, its for experimenting and enjoying the feel of something so very different. A few of the lower frequency more powerful patterns gets me there and I love the feel of this internally. 
I can highly recommend this gorgeous luxury Ceres Lace to those that want more extreme textures, this is NOT a beginners toy, try the smooth new Ceres original or Ceres G-spot first; or try a toy with far less texturing to see if that's what you would like, but the Ceres has no in-between, there isn't any part of the toy you can use if you find the texture too much. But you can pop on a condom if youbuy this and find it too much. Advanced and texture toy lovers however will enjoy the challenge of this beautiful toy. 
I also adore the original blue turquoise colour is a refreshing change from the pinks and purples. The Ceres lace will make a perfect gift for anyone who has tried most toys but is looking for something different and you will be getting a beautiful luxury quality toy with a lovely presentation box.
This could be the one key that unlocks the inner animal in you! 

Gorgeous colour,
7 patterns with a mix of rumbly and buzzy,
Storage bag,

Quite noisy,
Always would love more power.

Kinky Boots by KD Grace

Passion is the Journey, love is the destination!

Weve heard the song, and now we have the novella, I'm really excited to bring you one of KD Graces latest books, being a huge fan of the author herself and the supernatural I knew I was going to enjoy this read.

After a sizzling encounter in KINKY BOOTS, an all-night shoe store, with the store's hot owner, FINN MASTERS, JILL HEART walks away in the most gorgeous boots ever. Her new boots come with an unexpected bonus, a sexy demon named Eleanor, who's looking for a good time.All she lacks is a body, and Jill's will do nicely.
Jill quits her deadend job and, npot knowing whats come over her stops by the nearest pub intent on doing tequila shots until she falls off the stool. Instead she does finn masters in the beer garden, unwitingly participating in her first ever threesome. The boots were the bait, the timing was right and Eleanor has new digs. Its Finn's job to preven Eleanor misbehaving. His failure means he'll have to ride shotgun and do damage control until Eleanor moves out at the next full moon.
With Eleanor in residence, Jill's bolder, sexier, willing to take risks. But is she a whole new Jill, or is it just demon courage? And how will Fin feel about her when she's just plain Jill again?Will the maddeningly magical menage make Jill's dreams come true, or will it break her heart?

I have just finished Kinky boots in one sitting as its yet another KD Grace book which I havent been able to put down for a second. What a brilliantly imaginative idea for book, I dont think many authors could combine paranormal and erotica without it becoming a cornfest, but KD has created yet another masterpiece of supernatural erotica. I absolutely loved it!!!.

All the three main characters were so relatable and easy to follow, we sit alongside Jill as she becomes the person she has always wanted to be; confident and sexy and I loved the way KD gradually lets Finn and Jill fall in love with the 2 thousand year old lust demon in-between them.
The inexperienced Jill has her own desires and fantasies and Eleanor is going to help fulfil them, I loved how protective Finn becomes and how he cares for the both of them in completely different ways. Finn's job with the other 2 members of the Sole Alliance means they are responsible for the sexy demon Eleanors actions, this is a brilliantly creative twist to the story and I loved Meinrad the mega sexy hunk of a man supporting the story too. One particular part of the book uses rope play and is one of the many sexiest pieces in the book...phewey!!! 
Sex scenes are not your average vanilla and includes threesomes of mmf/ff and a super hot m/m scene. It maybe a fun supernatural novella but it doesn't make the sex scenes any less hot, best read by yourself to completely lose yourself in these pages. KD has a knack of pulling us right into the heart of the plot where we can hear, see and imagine the scenes before us easily.
 What sets Kinky Boots apart from hundreds of others is the way KD has added the sensitivity between the three of them, these scenes were not only rampant and wanting but tender and loving making the scenes between them so believable and all the more hot and sexy.
I loved the extra twist of danger and past history of Eleanor bringing the story together but Im not giving anymore away you really need to read this book. Its a fun, creative idea with a fab ending.

The storyline is another extremely well written book from the KD library; which now leads perfectly onto the final book coming very soon in the Lakeland heatwave trilogy another fantastic set of paranormal erotica and must have reads.
