I looked for my first rabbit vibrator for a long time. Probably too long. Honestly, I felt overwhelmed because there are so many options. All I knew was that I wanted a body safe, rechargeable, waterproof rabbit vibe that didn’t cost a fortune. I didn’t care if it thrusted or had rotating beads, but I worried that I was still expecting too much. Well, until I found Lovehoney’s Happy Rabbits.

     The only time another person bought me a sex toy was when I got my Happy Rabbit Realistic Rabbit Vibrator. Long story short: I have an Amazon Wish List linked to my Sex Forums profile, and I add to it only items that cost $20 or less because the idea of a kind stranger/admirer buying me a gift turns me on, but I feel uncomfortable about that gift being expensive. Well, this friend – a man more than twice my age – noticed my struggle to decide on a rabbit vibe. He was looking for a rabbit for his wife and took interest in my dilemma. Once I decided, he sent me a personal message offering to buy it for me to “show his gratitude” for my presence on the site and, I assume, for making public my quest to find the perfect rabbit for me. I naturally expressed uncertainty at first because although I think the price is reasonable, this toy costs more than my $20 limit. Lovehoney sells upgraded versions of their Happy Rabbits for $79.99. He assured me that he wasn’t concerned about the price. Even so, I found my Happy Rabbit on Amazon for a lower price¹, and we agreed. I felt flattered and excited. I hoped to write a positive review to show my friend that I appreciated his gift. I won my Happy Rabbit G-Spot Rabbit Vibrator in Lady Cheeky’s huge Valentine’s Day giveaway last year.

     At the time, Lovehoney offered three Happy Rabbits: the G-Spot, which has a bulbous, rounded tip; the Natural, which is softly tapered at the tip but still has a curved shaft; and the Realistic, which has the most phallic shape of the three. I chose the Realistic because I liked its shape the best, and the shape is the only difference between my two Happy Rabbits. The G-Spot definitely tugs at my pubic bone more than the Realistic does.

20150313_135143 20150313_134811 20150313_134409

     The upgraded versions of the G-Spot and the Natural boast 150% more power and 15 vibration options. The upgraded rabbit arm has a slightly different shape.

20150313_134055

     Plus, they’re now USB rechargeable. They’re still silicone and waterproof, but they have only two motors, which doesn’t seem like an upgrade. For Fifty Shades of Grey fans, Lovehoney offers the Happy Rabbit G-Spot Rabbit Vibrator’s shape combined with the branding of their Fifty Shades of Grey: The Official Pleasure Collection line of toys in the Fifty Shades of Grey Greedy Girl G-Spot Rabbit Vibrator.

     The packaging is tasteful but not discreet. There is a huge picture of the vibrator on the outer sleeve. Under the sleeve is a sturdy box, which contains the vibrator, charger, storage pouch, and instruction booklet on top of a plastic tray.

20150909_133546 20150909_133853

     Because the toy comes with a storage pouch, I don’t use the box for storage. It’s too bulky.

     My Happy Rabbit Realistic Rabbit Vibrator was the perfect choice for me. I think it’s absolutely worth the full retail price. Even my original version is rechargeable. The indicator light changes color from red to orange to yellow to green while the toy charges. It’s fully charged when the light is green.

     It’s not just waterproof; it’s submersible waterproof².

20150313_135621 20150313_140330

     This rabbit is silicone and ABS plastic, but I can’t boil it to sanitize it because it has three motors³. Instead, I clean it using soap and water, toy cleaner, wet wipes, or a 10% bleach solution. However, I let it air dry because drying it with a towel leaves fuzz behind. It comes with a storage pouch and has three constant vibration speeds, including in the rabbit arm, and two patterns of vibration in the shaft only for a total of five options. The patterns in the shaft are interesting because the shaft contains two motors. The second pattern is a pulsating that alternates between the two motors. The vibrations are powerful enough to make water-based lube bead on the shaft, and they’re definitely on the rumbly side. I love the feeling of the first pattern thrumming inside me. Two buttons make for easy operation, even for a beginner. The base is a great place to hold the toy during use, and the buttons are easily accessible. The long button controls the shaft while the small, round button controls the rabbit arm.

20150313_140734

     Just press the button to turn the motor(s) on, press it to cycle through the vibration options, and hold it down to turn the motor(s) off. The toy starts on whatever settings it was on when it was last turned off. These vibrators are really quiet. Lovehoney’s Happy Rabbits aren’t as travel friendly as they could be because they don’t have a travel lock. It has 5″ of insertable length – I only use about 3.5″ – and 5″ of girth at its widest point, and I love its size.

20150909_132410 20150909_131927 20150909_132747

     It’s filling without being difficult to insert, so I don’t need to warm up before I use it, and the rounded head isn’t uncomfortable against my cervix while the rabbit ears are super flexible.

20150313_140927

     Luckily, this particular rabbit vibe is perfect for my anatomy. The rabbit ears are the right distance from the shaft to touch my clitoris in an exact way when the shaft is in my vagina. I usually reach orgasm using a pattern internally with one rabbit ear on each side of my clit. I like to either rock the toy up and down inside me or back and forth so that the rabbit ears brush against my clit from side to side or use a very shallow thrusting motion.

Rabbit vibrator tip:

     While choosing a rabbit vibrator, I learned that it’s a pretty subjective and personal choice. I chose this rabbit vibe over other options because it offers the best combination of features for me. There are a ton of options, and I highly recommend taking the time to carefully consider the features of each potential purchase. Make a wise decision based on which option has the most desired features to offer. I love that this one is rechargeable because I intended to use it a lot. The three motors impressed me, and the vibrations are powerful enough for me to reach satisfying orgasms. I love the shape with its phallic head. I understood the appeal of cock-shaped toys after buying my first realistic dildo. The size is perfect for me. If I had to choose, I prefer girth over length because I want to feel full and a bit stretched but not poked, and I don’t like cervical stimulation. I wanted a body-safe toy, and all of the Happy Rabbit vibrators are body-safe silicone. I didn’t want a glass rabbit for my first rabbit vibrator experience because glass is hard and unforgiving. Silicone has squish and flexibility. It’s waterproof (read: easy to clean), comes with a storage pouch, and fits my anatomy at a reasonable price. Pinch me!

     However, my experience isn’t universal. I can’t guarantee that someone else would love this particular rabbit vibrator as much as I do. Things to consider before buying a rabbit vibrator include:

  • How it works – Is it rechargeable or battery-powered? If it’s not rechargeable, what kind of batteries does it run on? I hate watch batteries. For toys that see regular use, I’d recommend something rechargeable. Is it easy to use? How many buttons does it have?
  • Power – Consider buzzy vs. rumbly vibrations. Is there more than one speed setting? Does the toy offer vibration patterns? Some people need constant vibration while others prefer the variety that patterns provide. On the other hand, are there so many options that they’re overwhelming?
  • Size, shape, and texture – These features are extremely subjective and based on a person’s preferences when it comes to length and girth as well as whether or not they enjoy the sensation of texture and how much. Know what to look for. I know that I like a shorter or an average length between 4″ and 7″ with a diameter between 1.5″ and 2″ to give me the full, slightly stretched feeling I crave. I love cock-shaped toys and toys with a prominent head that pops when I thrust while some people prefer toys that don’t have a realistic shape. Texture I can take or leave. If a toy I buy has texture, I like some texture but not a lot. Just enough to make the sensations interesting.
  • Anatomy – The biggest complaint about rabbit vibrators is that they don’t fit everyone’s anatomy. If the distance between the shaft and the rabbit arm puts them too close together or leaves too much space between them, then hitting the right spots is difficult. Is the rabbit arm long enough with the shaft inserted? Does any part of the toy jab, stab, or poke?
  • Material – Body-safe materials are a requirement. I don’t compromise on this point, and I don’t think anyone else should either. However, there are other considerations when it comes to material. Is the toy soft or hard? How customizable is it? Is it nonporous? Color seems superficial, but it’s an important consideration for some people. Color wasn’t one of my primary considerations, but purple is my favorite color.
  • Care and cleaning – Is it splashproof, waterproof, or submersible? Some toys aren’t even splashproof. How much effort will cleaning require? Can I sanitize it and/or share it with a partner? A vibrator has a motor and therefore isn’t dishwasher safe and won’t survive boiling.
  • Price – This point is self-explanatory, but most people are on a budget, so it’s important to consider how much a toy costs. Where’s the value for money? Try to get as many desirable features as possible for the lowest price. I definitely recommend comparison shopping.
  • Additional features – Does it come with a storage pouch? Does it have a travel lock? These features aren’t necessary for the toy to function properly or for me to enjoy it, but they’re nice to have.

Pros:

  • The Happy Rabbit Realistic Rabbit Vibrator has the most phallic shape of the three Happy Rabbits, which I like, but there are two other Happy Rabbits that offer different shapes.
  • This vibrator is silicone with an ABS plastic base. Both of those materials are body safe.
  • This toy comes with a storage pouch.
  • I’d definitely recommend this rabbit vibe for beginners. It’s a good size for most people. The three motors are powerful, and this toy offers both constant vibration and patterns. It’s easy to operate with just two buttons.
  • I have independent control over the shaft and rabbit arm.
  • The rabbit arm has three vibration speeds.
  • This particular rabbit fits my anatomy perfectly.
  • It’s rechargeable.
  • It’s submersible.
  • It’s quiet.
  • It’s affordable without being cheap.

Cons:

  • Enjoyment of rabbit vibrators is subjective, and no rabbit will fit everyone’s anatomy.
  • I recommend using only water-based lubricants with this toy.
  • Lovehoney’s Happy Rabbits don’t have a travel lock.

Rating:  9.5/10

¹Although I recommend avoiding buying sex toys on Amazon, I’m guilty of doing it myself.

²The Lovehoney Web site says it’s submersible while the instruction booklet says it’s only splashproof, so I asked Lovehoney for clarification. They reassured me that the information on their site is accurate.

³Three! Two are in the shaft – one near the base and one near the tip – and the third one is in the rabbit arm.

Hydra Plant Cellulose Personal Lubricant.


Sex Toy Reviews for Experimental Fuckers #2

Hydra Plant Cellulose Personal Lubricant

This review contains affiliate links.

Hydra Plant Cellulose Personal Lubricant is a water-based lube from Intimate Organics. The packaging is tasteful, and the bottle shows the same image that’s on the box. The image is a female abdomen from just underneath the breasts to the hip with the focus on the navel and two leaves across the bottom of the picture. There are drops of water both covering the model’s abdomen and on the leaves, so it’s clear that this lube is water-based. This lube is different from other lubricants in that it is vegan friendly. Use it for oral sex because it’s safe to ingest. All of the products made by Intimate Organics contain certified organic extracts. These products are glycerine-, DEA-, and paraben-free, and they are body safe. While it’s true that some water-based lubes contain glycerine, women who suffer from chronic yeast infections or have other sensitivities should use a lubricant that doesn’t contain glycerine. Because I have very sensitive skin and itching that’s triggered easily, I’m careful when choosing a lubricant, and I really liked Hydra Plant Cellulose Personal Lubricant’s specifications and bought an 8-ounce (240ml) bottle, which is the largest size available. DEA is actually used in shampoo, lotion, and other cosmetics, and it is not necessarily harmful by itself, but it can interact with other ingredients to create a carcinogen linked to various types of cancer. Parabens are also found in shampoo as well as products such as shaving gel and toothpaste and can mimic estrogen and cause decreased sperm count in men as well as skin allergic reactions, and parabens can increase the likelihood of developing breast cancer. Exposure to these chemicals over time is potentially dangerous, so I love that Hydra Plant Cellulose Personal Lubricant does not use them. Intimate Organics also doesn’t use synthetic menthol or aluminum sulphate, which can dry or dehydrate vaginal and clitoral tissue and cause irritation. Intimate Organics never tests on animals.

WP_000531 WP_000532

     Hydra Plant Cellulose Personal Lubricant is clear. It contains plant cellulose, which is a natural ingredient. This lube feels smooth and slick to the touch and washes off easily because it’s water-based. Although Intimate Organics states that Hydra Plant Cellulose Personal Lubricant has no smell or taste, the lube has a natural smell that is not offensive. This lubricant definitely smells like plants. It’s not a flowery, feminine smell, and it’s not exactly a grassy smell. It doesn’t really smell earthy, and it doesn’t smell like dirt. It’s not really a leafy, autumn smell, and it doesn’t smell even remotely chemical. The natural smell of Hydra Plant Cellulose Personal Lubricant is fresh and pleasant. The taste of this lube also is relatively inoffensive. It isn’t completely tasteless, but the slightly bitter taste isn’t strong or utterly disgusting. It both smells and tastes like the aloe it contains, but again, it’s not an earthy or grassy taste. However, even though this lube is safe to ingest, I wouldn’t want to ingest large amounts of it. It would be a versatile lube to use for any type of intimate activity, including oral sex, but honestly, I’d suggest finding a good flavored lube for oral sex. Intimate Organics makes flavored lubes, but I haven’t tried any of them.

Ingredients

Lube tip:

     There are various types of lubricants on the market:  water-based, silicone-based, hybrid lubes, oil-based, liquids, gels, creams, and sprays.

     Water-based lubricants are popular for many reasons. Water-based lubes are the easiest to wash off. Just use a wet wash cloth or intimate wipe. Soap and water often isn’t necessary to feel clean after using a water-based lube. In fact, I just wiped my hands on a dry towel, and this lube came right off. Another great feature of water-based lubes is their ability to reactivate if they dry out during sexual activity. Water – or saliva in a pinch – reactivates water-based lubricants. Hydra Plant Cellulose Personal Lubricant is no different. I placed a bit of this lube on my fingertips and rubbed it into my skin until my fingers felt dry. Running my hand under a faucet was all it took to make the lube slippery again. One problem with water-based lubes is that they quickly can become sticky or tacky. Tackiness is my fiancé’s number one water-based lube complaint. Another issue is that they’re difficult to use in water because they wash off. These lubricants aren’t appropriate for having sex in the shower or tub.

     Silicone-based lubes are great for sex in water. A silicone-based lube won’t wash off without soap, so it provides the staying power that a water-based lube won’t. I had heard that silicone-based lubes are better for anal sex, so my fiancé and I tried a silicone-based lube, and it worked just fine, but I never felt completely clean after using it, even after washing it off with a soapy wash cloth. When we used Hydra Plant Cellulose Personal Lubricant for anal sex, my fiancé applied it, and I felt like he used a lot, but the bottle still looked full, and he hadn’t used much at all. Three-quarters of the bottle remains, and it doesn’t expire until April.

WP_000533

     Additionally, silicone-based lubes are not always safe to use with sex toys. Silicone-based lubes can degrade some materials – silicone, for example, which is a popular sex toy material because it’s body safe – so a water-based lube sometimes is necessary.

     Hybrid lubes are not new, but they are gaining popularity. A hybrid lube is a combination of a water-based lube and an ingredient that’s found in silicone. The first hybrid lube I used was Bodywise Liquid Silk. It’s not clear like water- and silicone-based lubes; instead, it’s white or milky and looks and feels like a thin lotion. Hybrid lubricants are easy to clean up like a water-based lube but long-lasting and slick like a silicone-based lube. While some hybrids claim they are appropriate for use with sex toys, I wouldn’t recommend taking that risk because hybrid lubes contain a small amount of silicone and may degrade silicone and other sex toy materials. When using silicone-based or hybrid lubricants with sex toys, test a small area first to avoid ruining the toy.

     Please exercise caution when using oil-based lubes. These can also be called petroleum-based lubes – for example, petroleum jelly or baby oil. Some oil-based lubes are not body safe, and oil-based lubricants in general are not as popular as they once were. They can degrade latex, which can cause latex condoms to slip or break more easily. Never use an oil- or petroleum-based lube with latex condoms. Instead, use a polyurethane condom. It is also believed that oil-based lubes are potentially detrimental to a woman’s vaginal health by clogging pores or causing yeast or bladder infections because oil-based lubes are more difficult to wash off. Do not use baby oil, Vaseline, chocolate syrup, whipped cream, or hand or body lotion for penetrative sex. However, if latex condoms aren’t being used, I have heard that virgin coconut oil is one of the best oil-based lubes because it’s organic and doesn’t contain the chemicals found in commercial lubricants. Coconut oil is also edible and tastes good. Finally, coconut oil may contain virus-, bacteria-, and fungus-fighting ingredients.

     Gels, creams, and sprays have gained popularity in recent years with claims that they heighten arousal and sensitivity by stimulating the nipples, buttocks, clitoris, or G-spot. Gels and creams have a thicker consistency comparable to that of KY Jelly or body butter. I prefer a thinner liquid lube over the thickness of KY Jelly. Any of these products can contain ingredients that cause tingling or stimulating, warming, or cooling sensations or desensitize an area. There are too many varieties of flavored lubes for me to list them all here. Try a bunch and find a flavored lube that tastes great. For people who use lube but don’t want to make a mess, there are lubricant sprays, which don’t make hands slippery. Hydra Plant Cellulose Personal Lubricant has a messy cap instead of a pump.

WP_000535

     Intimate Organics makes an anal sex spray, too. Their anal sex sprays do not contain desensitizing ingredients.

Pros:

  • Hydra Plant Cellulose Personal Lubricant contains organic extracts and is vegan friendly.
  • It’s safe to ingest.
  • It’s glycerine-, DEA-, and paraben-free, and Intimate Organics never tests on animals.
  • The ingredients in Hydra Plant Cellulose Personal Lubricant condition skin.
  • This lube is safe to use with condoms and sex toys.
  • It washes off easily with water.
  • Water-based lubes reactivate with water or saliva if they dry out during sexual activity.
  • Hydra Plant Cellulose Personal Lubricant has a natural aloe smell and taste.
  • This lube is one of the most body safe lubes on the market.
  • The price is comparable to other water-based lubricant brands in a bottle of the same or a similar size.

Cons:

  • Water-based lubes are not effective in water.
  • The cap can make dispensing this lube slightly messy.
  • I would still recommend using a flavored lube for oral sex.
