Nick Hawk Gigolo Swivel whip


This months Sexpert review is another from the new range endorsed by Nick Hawk from CalExotics.

Star from the hit Gigolos and highly paid expert on what women want. Nick has worked closely with CalExotics to create a complete line of pleasure products.


As I enjoy BDSM I immediately loved the look of the gorgeous little flogger and couldn't wait to try it and add it to my collection.



Packaging
The swivel whip arrives in CalExotics standard cardboard box with good graphic images of Nick and the whip, its not exactly discreet as it has Nick Hawk Gigolo in big silver lettering with a smaller image of the whip.

Inside, the whip is neatly wrapped in a clear polybag for hygiene purposes.



Description
This sturdy 22.5 inch flogger has an amazing 40 Black PU tassels of 9.75 inches in length. The metal chain is made of Nickel-free alloy with silver plated studs and connectors.

 The matching PU handle is wrapped tightly in a nice diagonal design finished off with a 3 inch PU wrist strap, so you can hang your flogger up.

Accented with 2 large silver studs for effect.

What makes this little flogger slightly different is that it has a unique swivel design compared to most floggers that are available. Those of you that use floggers on a regular basis know when you like to get a good spin on; the tassels can get twisted up and you have to stop and unwrap them, ruining your power moment....not with this.

 The swivel linkage isn't just a few chain link connectors its a strong chain mail effect tube all interwoven making it extremely strong. 

Chain mail designed!


You can see from the image it has a small pin securing the chain inside.

Both chain ends connect securely to the spinners and will spin together when you use the flogger.

You can see the unique double tubing (spinners) which allows you to get a good constant spin on the flogger with no tangling of the tassels.




Use
Over the years of BDSM play we have collected a variety of different whips and floggers, each one is completely different from the other. 
This adorable swivel-whip is not technically a whip, its a flogger due to the amount of tassels it has. First impressions were that initially this flogger felt a bit cheap as the plastic nickel plated spinners were quite stiff due to the nickel plating, but with a bit of repeated twisting it quickly freed off and is now spinning well.  

The tassels didn't get tangled at all.

The tassles themselves are soft and light and give a nice snappy sting, but nothing at all painful. I have a few suede floggers and the tassles are much heavier and despite them being a smaller flogger they can really give a sting. But these tassels are so light it simply gives a slight snap with little redness which fades quickly.
The chain mail and spinners gives the whole flogger a lovely substantial weight for its size; compared to any other flogger I have, meaning you can get a fast spin for very little effort and the 40 tassels give a nice loud snap when they hit the skin for those that love the noise effects.
But where this flogger comes into its own is that it gives the most sensual tickling, stroking and teasing of any flogger I own and I love the longer length too. Being on the receiving end the sting is perfect when your not in the mood for too much pain; the teasing and tickling soothes any slight sting immediately and is absolutely heaven. This unique design has made this one of my favourite gentle floggers as I found you can get a fast smooth spin compared to my other floggers, but still get the effects of sound and slight sting.

Easy to hang up in your dungeon or from a belt!

My only real gripe is the handle, I love to slip my hand through the strap for extra support and let it dangle for more effect (for my victim of course). But being only 3 inches in diameter its simply too small and I've tiny hands and cannot even squeeze my hand through. It really wouldn't have taken much to add an extra inch to this handle. 


This is a perfect beginners flogger for people who do not want much pain; but still want a slightly more hardcore look.  The chain-mail linking really looks fab wherever you hang it or leave it lying around. It will get your victims heart racing immediately!

Cleaning and Maintenance,
If you get any lube or fluids on it simply run under warm soapy water and allow to dry. I feel though hard or prolonged use will fray the ends being PU; saying that, I've given the tassels a really good tug to see if any come loose for your benefit and none have loosened or torn away they are well secured inside the metal tube connector. I do have a few frayed ends already but it hasn't affected the use as of yet.


Opinion
This is a perfect beginners flogger for those that are still very new to BDSM but want a more hardcore look, its 22.5" is also longer than the majority of floggers. The whole flogger has a wonderful weight to it compared to other floggers but the PU tassels by themselves are super light and wont inflict much pain, but with the speed you can get with the spin rather than individual whips it will give you alot of smarty sting and temporary redness. The handle is very comfortable enabling you to get a really nice spin going for little effort with no tassels tangling at all and great snappy sound effects. 
Afterall you cant lose the moment and what kind of dominatrix would you be if you had to untangle your own tassels ...   :-)
Those of you that are more advanced into BDSM will probably find this too light, but if you want something extra for your collection that looks good hung with your others and need a more teasey-strokey style flogger this would be perfect.
This is also an affordable flogger for those unsure wether they want to pursue BDSM and would also be perfect as a gift to someone who enjoys collecting whips and floggers as its unique swivel action makes it fun and easy to use.

Pro's
Excellent beginners flogger,
Longer than average,
Unique swivel linkage,
Secure tassles,

Con's
The spinners a bit stiff at first due to the Nickel plating process.
The strap is too small to loop over your wrist.

Lelo MIA 2 Lipstick Vibrator



I have wanted to try the iconic little Lelo Mia for a few years now, don't get me wrong I've been a lucky girl having the opportunity to try many other Luxury Lelo toys and loved each and every one.
But this little Mia has had so many rave reviews, I was dying to see what all the fuss was about, so when Lelo Mia 2 was available it took pride of place on my wish list.
I've never had much luck with bullets as I always love my super go faster power toys and my deep rumbly vibes. Toys this size generally don't have the power in their motors to give me what I want; so I've everything crossed for this adorable little vibe!



Packaging
I know alot of you are bored with packaging being included with reviews but with Lelo you cannot talk about this luxurious packaging as its award winning by itself. The Lelo Mia 2 arrives in usual standard Luxury Lelo packaging. In a matching coloured cardboard slip box. With Lelo written and embossed in silver on top.

Slide off the slip box and you have a gorgeous inner etched black cardboard box with lid; this in itself is extremely strong and firm.

Lift the lid to reveal the gorgeous black satin storage bag covering the Mia sitting in a black foam suede effect bed. 

 What girl wouldnt want to recieve this gorgeous toy as a pressie...what an entrance for the NEW Mia 2!


Underneath the velvety foam you will find Lelo's authenticity credit card where you can register the warranty online, user manual and a sample of Lelo's luxury water-based moisturising lube.
There your all set for the luxury Lelo experience!

Im over the moon with the little luxury black satin bag you get to store your Mia 2; standard for all Lelo products.

 They have even added the Lelo logo to give that real luxury feel.



Description
This adorable USB rechargeable sextoy is in the shape of a mascara or lipstick design, completely discreet from prying eyes. The smooth FDA approved ABS plastic shell comes in 3 main colours, Pink, black and mine the Deep rose which I'm absolutely in love with. It also comes with a full years warranty. The top tapers to a rounded point for pinpoint stimulation for all over the body.
The NEW Mia 2 is now completely waterproof with 100% more power than the original Mia and with an extra 2 patterns. (Mia 4 patterns, Mia 2 has 6)


The silver metal ring gives a luxury touch and signifies the middle, here you can pull the top off to reveal a standard USB unit, which plugs into any USB port, be it laptop, main PC or even the car if you have an auto USB point. You can literally charge this gorgeous bullet anywhere there's USB.

The top has Lelo's logo printed in white giving a real luxury expensive quality about it, even though its only a bullet.

The small silicone panel has the plus and minus buttons on it, making this easy-peasy to use.

Every part of a Lelo product has had attention to detail, you are investing into quality.

Measurements
Length is 4.37 inches long,
Width is 0.75 inches wide,


Recharging
I dare you to find an easier toy to charge than this. Your little Mia2 has no batteries you simply take off the cap and plug into any USB connection and leave it for approx 2 hours for the first charge.

Nowhere in Lelo's manual does it state how long to charge her for. So you simply plug her into a USB connector, either a cable like above; or directly into your PC USB port or directly into your laptop (see image below).

 The Mia 2 plugs in securely showing how excellent quality the USB connector is, she is also very light and doesn't put any pressure on the connector.

 She is also still completely discreet if someone should see it plugged in, you cant tell she simply looks like a USB flashdrive.

The LED is super bright and will blink until fully charged where it will go out.

 You can see from this pik just how bright the single LED is.


Vibrations
 This mini monster has 6 patterns to choose from, amazing for something so small. The Mia 2 works by "press and hold" technology. Simply Press the + and hold it will increase to full speed in less than 4 seconds, set your favourite intensity and your away or then press and hold again to go into the patterns;
  1. Press and hold various speed,
  2. Pulse every second,
  3. 1.5 pulses a second,
  4. Escalation to full,
  5. Wave low to high, low to high,
  6. Pick and mix,
I have to say Lelo have blown me away with the power of this thing, the pulse vibrations go through my hand to my wrist, but odd enough doesnt make my hand numb as its a lower frequency. If it was a buzzier vibe like most of my other bullets my hand would be numb within minutes. She is also discreet not only in looks but in vibes too.
Lelo claim she lasts for 1.5 hrs continual charge, I have to come clean and say I have never used her for 1.5 hours continually Ive usually come within a few minutes....lol! I have been using for weeks now and I still havent had to charge her yet with no drop in power. So I would say that claim is pretty close.

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 then take the reading of the room itself to have a baseline.

Ambient measurement  - 33 dB
Lowest setting 34.2 dB muffled as if inserted,
Highest setting 47.0 dB muffled as if inserted.

Even these measurements show how quiet Mia 2 is on low and rumbly its under library quiet (according to the chart below), so she cannot be heard through a wall or door, but Im sure you will be heard. However once you get to full speed she picks up a powerful motor noise; as I always say; you cannot get full power without a bit of noise..its a motor afterall. But this dB reading clearly shows she is one of the quietest most powerful bullets I own.


 Here is a dB chart to help you get the idea of the measurements.



Use
Wow wow wow, the saying small is beautiful, small is powerful, the best things come in small packages just sums this adorable little Mia 2 up.
The Mia has a luxury weighty feel of an expensive lippy or mascara, you can actually feel the quality weight of the motor inside. Lelo have really thought about this ultra feminine design.
I was a bit nervous for the Mia 2 when I first held her in my hand...as I didn't want to have to say, nope doesn't do it, not powerful enough as I have done with so many bullets before her.
But......
Yay...... She's a little power monster and the most powerful bullet I've ever tried..woohoo...so excited I finally I got to say it!

 
This rounded tip bullet is perfect for pinpoint stimulation!

Usually I dont get the power I prefer when using toys on my nipples; but Mia feels a...m...azing! Let alone on my clit shes perfect! I can orgasm in minutes on full power...hey I always whack my toys to full and sometimes pay for it lol.  Mia was just perfect, she is 2-3 minutes of pure bliss. I also found being made of ABS plastic I didnt need any lube at all.
But those of you that always use lube, you can use your favourite silicone or waterbased lube. Lelo supply you with their own moisturising lube sample so your set to go within a few hours of receiving her.
Ok I do prefer insertable toys but occasionally a gal just likes something to grab when the mood takes her and Mia is that "grabbable toy"! She is also fantastic across your shoulder and neck this did surprise me.
The vibes are rumbly and I have to say I'm gob smacked Lelo have managed to get such a low frequency powerful motor in such a small and beautifully designed case. The easy to use + and - buttons are made of silicone to give you extra grip to change pattern, because it can become slippy. I personally love ABS plastic toys with no worries of dust sticking to it; you also get a gorgeous shine and depth of colour. Mia 2 is now permanently in my handbag for when the mood takes me; and it does regularly :-)

Discreet
I dont normally have a discreet section; but The Mia deserves her very own section.

I have to mention this case, it really is gorgeous, my images don't give it justice as this deep rose pink is just stunning.

She is the ultimate in discreet toys; can you really tell this is a mind blowing orgasm maker sitting in between my mascara and my nail varnish? 
"Well ok you can tell I know...but anyone who doesn't know about sextoys then...lol!"

Even in my hand bag you cant tell.

 Im not worried one bit that someone will see it as its so inconspicuous; apart from being such a beautiful cerise pink and someone will want to borrow it. It would be so funny to see them take the top off to find a USB and no lippy...then the explaining begins...its a USB drive in shape of lippy silly...course it is ;-) ! 

She is also discreet in sound too...see the dB readings!

Warning; Never insert this anally, it has no flared base and it becomes slippy with use and you could easily end up with an embarrassing situation in A&E.


Cleaning and maintenance
This has to be the easiest toy I own to clean simply give it a quick wipe with baby wipes before and after use and a spray with sextoy cleaner and allow to dry and your ready to go. Then keep clean dust free in its own black satin bag.
TIP: Do not submerge as it has a full size USB connector inside. Lelo say she is waterproof but I would say she is splashproof and NOT to submerge her. There is no sealing ring to prevent water leaks in the USB cap. Its a simple 3 way bayonet fitting that although tight may not be fully waterproof especially if you do forget to screw it back tightly. Its easy to wipe clean it takes seconds.




Opinion
Usually with my opinion I sum up all the pros and cons. Well this is going to be short and sweet; its the BEST bullet I have ever tried in 25 years of using sextoys!
I love this adorable Mia 2 because of her extra power and rumbly vibes , this really will suit most people, this tiny bullet puts out some real rumbly power and is absolutely worth every penny.
Its perfect as a first toy due to the control, ease of use and discreetness as well as ease to recharge and clean. The seasoned toy collector will love the extra power and strong patterns. I never expected to love her like I do as I prefer insertable larger, girthier toys, so she's the complete opposite to what I would have chosen.
Every girl NEEDS one of these in her toy box.
 Dont bother with cheaper bullets girls, its really worth it to invest in quality. Its beautiful depth of colour, her sleek elegant curves and you have that Lelo Luxury feel, what's not to like?
