NEW PRODUCT: Pjur Back Door Comfort Spray

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

We talk to people all the time about not using a desensitiser on the area ‘back there’ when they want to explore anal play. If you read our article a couple of days ago you’ll know even more than most. But we’ll stick to the good news here:

Pjur, makers of some of our favourite lubricants, have launched an all new product that is designed with your comfort and safety in mind. And we love it!

Pjur Back Door Anal Comfort Spray was specifically developed for play from behind. The active ingredients are formulated to make the skin and tissue significantly more elastic – which means you can do things you’ve never done before and feel the full benefit of great anal play. Lauromacrogol slightly desensitises because it helps to relax the anal sphincter for better sensations without numbing. The addition of Penthenol gives Pjur Back Door Spray it’s relaxing effect without the use of benzocaine or lidocaine. Plus it’s condom-safe!

If you’ve been looking for a way to extend your play this is the product ot try. It’s relaxing, soothing and comforting, and when used in combination with a good lubricant (Pjur Back Door Silicone works great with it – but any lube will do) then this is the one to try.

Book Review: The Human Pony by Rebecca Wilcox (nsfw)

Friday, January 21st, 2011

Books are the essence of knowledge. They teach, inform, enlighten and instruct. So with that in mind i’d like to direct your attention to the beautiful written and published book “The Human Pony” By Rebecca Wilcox.

For someone who has no insight into the different worlds and cultures of the BDSM and Fetish scene, this subject can initially raise some eyebrows. However the combination of clearly written details, beautiful images and delightfully written first hand accounts from Human Equine and Their Trainers make this an informative and insightful guide into the world of Human Equine Play.

Rebecca Willcox uses her knowledge and experience as a both a Bio Equine Trainer and her involvement with Human pony play to create an understanding of the many different worlds and motivations each person has for entering pony play. She explains the unique difference in each type of human pony (for example, Show ponies will be trained in dressage and dressed elaboratly for show, whilst a Cart Pony has the stimulus of leading his/her owner’s attached cart to their desiered destination) and how each understanding of the concept “Pony Play” is unique and varied from person to person. We are given this introduction in the first chapter “What is Pony Play?” and shown what appeals to people just understanding pony play for the first time.

Chapters “Pony and Trainer Headspace” and “Equipment” goes into to detail the emotional and mental attributions to pony play, and how important safety is to both the trainer and pony. We are shown how humans can be compared to bio equine just by certain quirks they show whilst being in “Pony Headspace”..Taking on certain peronsonality qualities that can be found in specific Bio-Horse breeds. We are given information about the proper use and care of Equipment and how biological equine equipment has been adjusted and reinveted for Human Pony use. Lots of beautiful large photos give a great visual into what you would be looking for and how it is to be worn (The boots that are designed to look hoofs are amazing!)

Detailed guides follow about what it takes to train a Pony and useful techniques that are not much different from training Biological Horses. From Grooming, to tacking (saddling up) to Obstacles – Everything is covered here in a easy fluent way for even the most mystified person to comprehend.

Rebecca introduces us to her world of event planning, Having herself organised many events for the Pony Play community including ‘Fox Hunts’, where a variety of animal role players (Such as ponies and puppies) come together to recreate the age old game of Hide and Seek to new levels. This chapter gives a beautiful insight to how closeknit and fun this community and type of play can be.

“The Human Pony” is a great book for people with all levels of interest in pony play. From the most experienced Cart pulling pony to the most curious of couples, Its hard to walk past this book without glimpsing at the stunning visuals. A great read for anyone with even the slightest curiosity into the world of Human Ponies.

Review: LELO Gigi

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

Lusting after a powerful toy with a clever design? Something hand held with a unique shape that’s luxurious and beautiful to look at whilst not needing batteries (rechargeable!) PLUS it has to be perfect for exploration?

The GiGi is that toy. Fleshlight.com

Or, at least that’s what I was thinking after I tried it! Though well versed in the literature of the g spot and how to get ‘the most’ out of it, I felt I hadn’t quite experienced what all the fuss was about. Sure, g spot stimulation feels great, but the GiGi invites you into an entirely different experience. It lets you navigate the spot like a pro (and when you’ve got the right equipment, you feel like a pro too!)

What makes the GiGi so unique in comparison to other small to mid-size vibrators is its ingenious shape. It curves ergonomically and finishes at the head with a flattened, oval tip which is perfectly designed for that set of infamous glands that sit 6-8 cms within the front wall of the vagina (towards the urethra.) It basically ‘hits’ the spot without even needing to wriggle around and find it.

The medical grade silicone coating makes the toy feel so silky smooth and divine to the touch whilst the firmness of the core allow for that extra pressure needed to adequately stimulate the g-spot. Furthermore, the depth of vibration that this toy generates is remarkably impressive. Looking at how slim and hand bag sized it seems, it’s surprising just how powerful and ‘deep’ it feels. This type of deep vibration makes the most of g-spot exploration (and you can even feel the vibration transfer externally to the clitoral area – it’s that strong!) Of course, it can also be used externally and its smooth flattened tip is ideal for tracing around the clitoris and inner and outer labia, making the most of the toy and its features.

If you’re feeling creative, you can even team the GiGi with a bullet style vibrator externally to achieve a rabbit style experience with the added benefit of the tailored G-Spot design. Pairing the GiGi with the LELO Siri would prove to be a very explosive experience!

With 5 variable pattern modes and seven vibrating speed settings you could spend a whole weekend playing with GiGi, which her generous 4 hour charge would definitely allow!

Whether your new to toy play, have tried lots of others, or have just been eyeing off Gigi from afar now is a great time to get one –  MaXXX Black gives free shipping for orders placed online. So what are you waiting for?

NEW LELO INSIGNIA IS HERE!

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

There are days when it seems like we have the best job in the world – days like today.

Inside our delivery boxes this morning was the VERY FIRST shipment of LELO Insignia pleasure objects in Australia – and we got to open them!

These are the most hotly anticipated toys of the year with sensual styling, functionality and quality that is second to none – plus they have to be some of the sexiest vibrators we have ever had the PLEASURE to play with.

1103_lelo_alia_vibrator_sm.jpg

LELO Alia - Compact and Versatile. Perfect for couples play. Ideal to enhance oral pleasure.

So what’s so great about the new range? Hmm, where do we start?

There’s the new designs – gleaming metal meets silky, seam-free silicone in a variety of budoir colours (yes even the guys will love these) plus each new design features the ‘ring’ which will make handling and play oh so much easier and tactile.

1103_lelo_isla_vibrator_sm.jpg

LELO Isla - Deeper pleasure that is built for men and women alike!

Ergonomics – The ‘ring’ is a fundamental change we’ll see lots of other companies copy as it allows for a more natural hold on the toy, making for more comfortable and targeted handling. LELO have also ensured the new infinate control panel is positioned in such a way that when the thumb is put through the handle the index finger rests easily on the controls.

Then there’s the new motor – LELO did an overhaul of the already great motors in their toys to deliver vibrators that are higher frequency, deeper feeling and whisper quiet.

How about the battery? Like all LELO products the Insignia range is fully rechargeable – so no more battery shopping (or remote control raiding). The new battery charges faster too and holds it’s charge for almost 30% longer!

Insignia are waterproof! These are LELO’s very first rechargeable waterproof toys – so now you get the eco choice and you can play where you like.

1103_lelo_soraya_vibrator_sm.jpg

Lelo Soraya - The most luxurious rabbit vibrator ever made?

It comes with jewellery. Yes, each Insignia vibe comes with a pretty little infinity pin. Makes us feel like we belong to a very exclusive group of men and women who are in the ‘know’.

It’s Beautifully Packaged – every Insignia comes in its own gorgeous presentation box that makes us feel like we’ve gone shopping at Chanel or Tiffany’s. MB will also giftwrap any Insignia purchased for Christmas too so it’s the Holiday gift that comes ready to give (and please).

Simply put – They feel awesome, they look amazing, and every staff member at MB has one on their Christmas list.

Review: Onye Fleur by B3 Toys

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

It’s been a while since we reviewed a new toy from B3, the luxury brand of Big Teaze Toys (makers of the world-famous I Rub My Duckie vibrators). The new range of  Onye vibes – called Fleur – are a genuine surprise, even if you’ve been a fan of bullet vibrators for a long time or never before.

The B3 Onye Fleur is terribly cute and girly.  The super-shiny enamel-looking surface glitters from its lovely floral packaging, and it is easy to see why these are perfect holiday gifts!  We loved the clear packaging that showcased the product with a lovely, feminine  picture of cherry tree blossoms in the background.  Thank you Big Teaze Toys for being kind to our eyes.

So how does it perform?

This little bullet hums with a vibration power far greater than its diminutive size.  The Fleur has a slow, medium, and high vibration speeds, but each speed is powerful.  In fact, this bullet’s fastest vibration speed is best described as intense. The high frequency of the vibration at top speed is much quieter than expected too.

The Onye Fleur is just big enough without being too big for a bullet.  It’s long enough that you are able to get a secure grip on the vibe, but is still small and discreet enough to slip in a purse or pocket for use on the go.

And speaking of getting a good grip, the Fleur has this awesome little grippy band on it. Even the grip is designed with us girls in mind featuring a lovely floral pattern that gives your fingers somewhere to hold – which is especially nice if you have lubey fingers (use any lube you like!!!).  The velvety soft ABS plastic can make this bullet a little slippery, but the silicone band makes holding on a whole lot easier.  Also, it’s small size (which packs a


punch!) is great for use during couples play.  It’s easy to slide this bullet down while in missionary or doggie style position.  Plus, no cord to get all wrapped in!

The whole thing is operated with a nice little push button on one end that has an audible ‘click’ when you press it.

The Details:

  • Manufactured by Big Teaze Toys
  • Length- 4 1/2″
  • Insertable length- 2 1/2″
  • Width- 1.1″
  • Made from ABS plastic
  • Silky smooth finish
  • Phthalate free
  • Latex free
  • Multi-speed- 3 speeds
  • Waterproof
  • Requires 3 AAA batteries
  • Available in  pink, purple and red

The Verdict:

This is one of the most powerful, and practical, bullet vibes to be released in long time.  Designer in appearance and packaging it makes a great gift that is perfect for the holiday season (guys take note – she will love this one). Whether you love or loath bullet vibrators this is one you need to try out – it’s sexy, shiny and sensual!

Review: Fleshlight Ice

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

So you’re single, or your mate is, or your guy is travelling without you – there are literally millions of reasons why men and women all over the world have added one of the Fleshlight products to their toychests.

http://www.maidinheaven.co.nz/images/E21720.jpg

So what are they and what is so special about the ICE version?

The Fleshlight recreates the plush velvetine texture of a real person and with proper lubrication (water-based only) it feels like the real thing.

The actual toy is housed in a flashlight-like case that makes storage discreet and easy PLUS it makes the toy easy to grip and controls the level of suction in the toy.

The latest ICE version sees the toy and flashlight case get reproduced in clear materials, so you can see everything that happens, as it happens.

Not only is it far more visually appealing the clear packaging means it is LOTS of fun to use with a girlfriend or boyfriend as you both get a look at the action.

So How Do You Use It?

First, place the elastomer insert (the “vagina”) in hot water, until it becomes warm.  Next, place the Fleshlight back into the canister, and lubricate your penis as well as the entry and canal of the product. Finally, get to playing! You can hold it, wedge it down, prop it in between pillows or however you want!

Clean & Care?

For cleanup, simply take the  insert out of its plastic case and run hot water through it to remove any residue. Towel or air-dry (air-dry is best as it leaves no fibres) and place it back into the canister.  To make it 100% brilliant to use every time, re-powder it with cornstarch – this will restore its silky feel, as well as protect the material.

Don’t use silicone lubricants in Fleshlights as they will damage the texture of the product – and the texture is what makes these things great.

Tips?

Fleshight Ice and Fleshlight Originals are great for guys who are at least 1.5 inches in girth  ‘down there’. This is because the untextured inserts are a little wider.  If you’re size is a little below the 1.5″ and you like a looser sensation these will be great but there are bumpy and super tight versions for maximu stimulation.

Use the Fleshlights as a stamina trainer.  Most guys won’t last more than a couple of minutes in this toy so it can be a great way to build up sexual tolerances and stamina.

Final Words

No doubt Fleshlight will continue to be #1 for some time.  With new releases and different versions slated for next year we are all in for some serious solo fun! It will also make for a very naughty Christmas present that’s all about him.

Review: Tantus Prostate Health

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

The Prostate Health massager from Tantus isn’t just another toy to get off with. This is a massager with a mission, that mission being the health of your prostate. Tantus designed this massager with a bulbous end and combined it with vibration to teach men to relax the muscles surrounding the prostate to reduce the risk of prostatis and BPM. According to Tantus, “smooth muscles relieve the pressures associated with prostate problems.”

The Medical Stuff

Prostatis is an inflammation or infection of the prostate gland, often resulting in swelling or pain. BPM is an increase in the size of the prostate, most often seen in older men. The Prostate Health massager was designed to get you to relax the muscles surrounding your prostate and fully empty your prostate through ejaculation, thus combating your risk of enlargement or inflammation. It seems the folks over at Tantus have more on their mind than just earth-shattering orgasms.

The Basics

If you ask any guy in the world he will tell you that he hates going in for his prostate check up. Listen, I get it. But let’s face facts – Prostate disorders have been becoming more and more common in the Western world. Which is why it is so important to make sure men are doing everything in their power to keep their prostate healthy.
Unlike keeping healthy in other ways keeping your prostate in good working order can actually be a ton of fun! Women have a G-spot, which is often described as this magical spot inside their pussies that creates amazing orgasms. Well, most people don’t realize that men have their own version of the G-spot. We like to call it the P-spot. The prostate gland is actually very sensitive and responds in a very desireable way to stimulation. What’s even better is that a P-spot massage can lead to incredible orgasms as well as prostate health! Sounds like a pretty fair trade to me.

Now, that you know how to achive a good orgasm and prostate health you probably need help picking the right toy to reach this end. I’m going to make this easy on you.

Prostate Health is made out of a platinum-grade silicone and has a very unique design. This flexable toy’s crazy looking shape is actually designed to curve with the natural curves of the body. The boulbous head vibrates with the help of an insertable bullet vibe and teaches the man using this toy to relax while getting a gentle P-Spot massage. All of this will help reduce the risk of prostatis and BPM.

Prostate Health also features a small thumb grip to help create a comfortable hold on the toy during use. You will hear me say this many times but all toys that are intended to go in your ass MUST have a flared base and this toy has that. The flared base prevents the toy from traveling past your sphincter in an undesired way. A flared base is a REQUIREMENT for all anal plug type toys.
The biggest recommendation I can give is to ensure you have an ideal water-based lubricant to use with this toy. If you or your guy hasn’t used many toys like this before he may need a little foreplay before inserting it. The lube you choose should be slick, long-lasting, and easy to re-wet or re-apply without build-up.  Pop over to our Water-Based Lubricant department to see the full range.
If you or the guy in your life needs a little Prostate Health go to MaXXX Black and pick one up today – for a limited time they’re on sale too!

Material: silicone
Size: 4.5″ length 1″ diameter
Vibration: Optional (with Bullet Vibe)
Lube: Water based Lube
Cleaning: Boilable, Bleachable and Dishwasher Safe
Accessories: Bullet Vibe (comes with it) Batteries Included

Review: NJOY Pure Wand = Pure Pleasure

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

What Njoy Says…

The njoy Pure Wand provides a direct connection to your favourite Spot – G or P – or wherever feels so good. The Pure Wand is crafted with perfect curvature and ample reach so you can lay back and relax while you pleasure yourself or your partner with firm, controlled massage.

Out Of The Box

All Njoy toys come in a beautiful black display box lined in hot pink satin – which is not only sensual but handy for storage too. When I opened mine and took the Pure Wand out, I was pleasantly surprised at it’s weight. At 1.5 lbs., this is one of the heavier non-vibrating toys I’ve played with but it’s weight is more of a turn-on than a turn-off. It feels solid and smooth and cool and there’s something alluring about it.

Plus Sides

It’s a very discreet, nondescript, non-penis looking toy. Then there’s the great black wooden storage box. It does have the njoy name and logo on it, but it’s not like your Nanna is going to know what that means.

The problem with a lot of g-spot toys is that the curve usually doesn’t work out or there’s not enough of the toy to play with to make the curve work out. That’s not the case here. The length and the curve of the Pure Wand allows you to easily lay back, hold onto the Wand and get it in the proper position for successful g-spot stimulation. It was like there was a big handle on the toy, I loved it!

Bulbous endnjoy Review end detail

There’s a thin bulbous end and a thicker bulbous end for penetration, so there is options for different kinds of play. For ladies who can’t immediately accept thick toys start out with the thinner end and then as you get more aroused, treated yourself to more fulfillment via the thicker end.

The weight of the Pure Wand really does make a difference. Proper g-spot stimulation requires a toy that is firm and has some substance to it. The weightier and the harder it is (within reason), the less work we have to do to stimulate ourselves. I found with the Pure Wand that I didn’t need to use as much muscle for tapping or applying pressure. The weight and firmness of the metal helps to magnify your movements.

Being metal, the Pure Wand is very hard so it won’t bend or flex, another important ingredient in g-spot stimulation for many women. However you point and move it, this baby is going where you want it to. So once you find your g-spot with it, you just have to keep tapping or applying pressure to the same area, no guesswork.

Since it’s made of medical grade stainless steel, it’s a great toy to share with others and for anal play; it can easily be completely cleaned and disinfected because it’s totally non-porous. Cleaning is essential between partners and orifices.

But Isn’t It Cold?

It’s a metal dildo so, yes, it is going to be cold against your skin. For some, that’s an immediate turn off.  So it’s important to soak or run it under warm water, or keep it wrapped in a warm towel before you use it. That way, it won’t be such a shock. The good thing is it warms up very quickly, and retains heat well.

Cleaning

It couldn’t be easier. This is a medical grade, stainless steel dildo, a non-porous material, so you can completely submerge it in soapy water to clean and it will be completely disinfected. You can also take further steps, according to the instructions, by sterilizing in boiling water. Medical Grade Stainless Steel is an expensive type of stainless steel that will not rust. So there’s also no worries about your toy getting funky in the future.

Guest Comments (Another Use)

I showed this to my lady friend and once she held onto it she made the comment that by keeping it on your nightstand, it also serves as a damn good weapon against any intruders.

nJoy full review photo

The Verdict

Pure Wand by Njoy is a great G-Spot Toy! It has the all important weight, making finding and stimulating your G-Spot a cinch. The medical grade stainless steel is about the hardest material you can have for a toy, so that baby won’t flex or bend out of place. Plus, every tap and pressure you apply to your sweet spot will be felt. The curve and length of the Pure Wand is so comfortable to use that you won’t easily tire out from trying to maneuver the toy. It’s a very discreet and surprisingly pretty with a solid storage box to keep it in and travel with.

It’s a versatile toy, a thick and thin end gives you options for penetration. Since it can be completely cleaned and disinfected, you can use it for anal stimulation and share it with others, making it a great swingers toy. Since there’s no battery compartments, feel free to use it in your tub, shower, pool or whatever other wet environment you prefer to play in. Just make sure you warm this toy up because the metal material very easily stays cold, but don’t worry, it heats up quickly. Even though it’s not a vibrating toy, a little wiggle, side to side gives you the feeling of vibrations, a very nice surprise. I’ve been searching for a toy that can replace my husband’s awesome finger technique and with the Pure Wand, I have found just that!

Whilst not the cheapest toy in the toybox the Njoy range of toys will far outlast almost every silicone toy out there thanks to the materials, the ease of care, and the storage solution.

Vital Stats:

Size: Measures 8″ from end to end, straight across and 10″ measuring along the curve. Weighs 1.5 lbs. Thick bulb end measures 1.5″ from side to side. Thin bulb measures 1″ from side to side.
Water Friendly: Yep, there’s no battery compartment to worry about corroding, so splash away.
Extras: Wooden black storage box lined with foam and satin to keep your precious prize in, small instructional booklet.

Review: Vibratex Mystic Wand – It’s Magic!

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Don’t let its looks fool you.

This battery-operated wonder is the little sister to the world-famous Hitachi Magic Wand and Wand A Lust, Vibratex’s Mystic Wand packs some serious power.  When holding the Wand in your hand, the first thing you notice is the intensity of it’s vibration.  It seems to resonate through the body – a feeling that the vibrations are ‘deeper’ than they usually are.  This is due to the strong low frequency of the vibrations which the body remembers even after you’ve let go.

It is operated by two push buttons, and a bright little LED indicates which of the 3 vibe and 3 pulse/surge modes you’re playing with. The bright blue light at the top of the toy makes for an awesome guide lamp when you’re playing in the dark too!  Made from phthalate-free silicone it’s softer to the touch than expected, but we’d still recommend a good quality water-based lubricant like Astroglide Natural to get the most out of it.

It’s also important to note that unlike many other toys Mystic Wand requires the use of Alkaline Batteries – its motor is strong so it needs strong batteries. But don’t worry, they come free when you get it at MaXXX Black.

Now, this is one toy that inspired some very naughty thoughts in me.  It’s an ideal toy for self-massage and some intense solo play, but the Mystic Wand offers much more than this. Close your eyes and imagine giving your loved one a sensuous full body massage finding all their yummy ticklish spots; or placing the toy behind your tongue (careful of teeth) to drive them wild; or simply cupping the wand in the palm of your hand, feeling the vibrations travel through your fingertips.  It’s one heck of a show and the finale is all up to you!

What about the boys? Many of our male customers ask about vibrating toys for men and there are very few quality items on the market. This toy is perfect for intense all over body stimulation so why not try pressing it under the scrotum or against the perineum?  The deeply penetrating vibration coupled with fellatio, self play and/or prostate stimulation will definately satisfy his cravings.

Want an encore?! The Mystic Wand G-Spot attachment enhances the design making it perfect for G-Spot or anal use and just for those steamy midnight romps, the Mystic Wand even has a purvey night light so you don’t miss a thing!

The Mystic Wand is the perfect unisex toy that just keeps on going! Half the fun lies in exploration but the satisfaction is in the play!

Love, Maxxxie!
