Review of Ako by Picobong

Picobong is Lelo’s sister corporation, the luxury adult toy manufacturer renowned for rumbly vibrators made of smooth butter silicone. Picobong is the line of inexpensive, battery-operated sex toys that are more cost-effective, but most are as nice as Lelo from what I hear. I was encouraged to try the Ako from Tabutoys.com, but I was a little worried that I wouldn’t like it because the reviews I saw about other Picobong toys were not so nice. I’ll say that the Ako is incredible early on. It’s stronger than my Mia 2, and I’m shitting daisies seriously about how incredible this inexpensive little vibrator is. Thanks so much for letting me give it a go to Tabutoys!

Picobong AkoDesign: It is an ergonomic vibrator that fits comfortably in my hand and because of the sharp edge of the tip provides a lot of direct pinpoint stimulation to the clitoris. It seems to be made for people with the right hand; sadly, what isn’t it? Naturally, when I hold it my thumb falls on the side buttons, making it simple to alter velocity or settings. The foundation is ABS Plastic, and if you attempted to insert it, it has graduated edges that I think would not be very comfortable. For a reason, it’s called an outie vibrator, so just stick to outside stimuli.

Picobong Ako Because the Ako is produced from the same soft silicone butter as Lelo toys, use with water-based and hybrid lubes is secure. Some individuals claim that if both are high-quality products, pure silicone lubes are now discovered secure to use with silicone toys, but I would err on the secure side and stick to water-based products. I prefer to do a spot test with a hybrid lube first by placing a little lube on a part of the silicone toy that is not often used. If it discolors after the lube has been wiped off, it implies that they are not compatible. It also hardly picks up any lint at all, but in the images I took for this evaluation it’s covered in lint, of course. My luck… because it’s waterproof, it’s easy to clean up. It would do soap and water, toy cleaner, or a 10% water solution bleach. I prefer soap and water, but if you share with partners, cleaning is better than cleaning. Boiling vibrators is a severe “no” to sanitize. It will destroy your toy’s internal workings and make it pointless.

Personally, I don’t keep my vibrator with the Picobong charm. All of us have heard about anal bead cables that hold onto bacteria and are porous. The same goes in my book for any cord. The charm also feels a lot cuter for college on my backpack.

Function: Picobong Ako Batteries Two AAA batteries are operated. When you give it a slight counter-clockwise spin, the battery cap pops off, and there are few indicators showing how the batteries can be placed in the internal white band. The cap readily locks back into location and is water-resistant. For two seconds, pressing the+ button turns it on and you can hold the+ button until you get the power you want. You can click the M button at any intensity and it will enter the various modes. Cycling through all ten will take you back to the standard mode of steady vibrations, unlike the Mona 2 that allows you to cycle through the modes backwards. You can only move forward with this one. Okay, no biggie.

There are 12 distinct settings, and you can set about 10 distinct speeds to operate with those configurations. It’s stronger than my Lelo Mia 2 at its highest, but slightly weaker than the Lelo Mona 2. I’m pretty thrilled. It’s a lot cheaper than Mia 2, and it made me much simpler to get off.

The travel lock option is worth noting as well. In the instructions or online, I didn’t see anything about it, but you can lock it by pushing and holding the+ and–buttons forx seconds (between 3 and 5 seconds somewhere). You just click and hold them back to unlock. So nice! It’s not like buttons are super easy to push, but I like the added security of knowing that when I get it tucked away in a duffle bag, it won’t begin vibrating.

Personal experience: it is something I enjoy. It’s rumbly, powerful, and you can choose from so many distinct methods. I enjoy it’s tip. It’s long, but thin, so I can turn it on its side to get wider stimulation, or concentrate the tip on my clit to get the stimulation pinpoint. Even if I decide to use the straight edge for direct stimulation, it’s not like the Salsa can be an overwhelming pinpoint stimulus.

Comparing it to the Salsa, Picobong Ako, I believe I might really like the Ako more. If in weeks I haven’t used my salsa. It’s too much sometimes, almost to the point of numbing me. I believe the Ako is a vibrator that is more partner friendly. I end up in pain, not pleasure, if she touches a little too hard or runs the small little Salsa tip against a very delicate portion of my clitoris. With the Ako, she works with more surface region, but she also has a beautifully edged tip to assist me cum easier; or at least as simple as it will be for me–we all understand my orgasm problems! The tip also makes finding my partners clit easy for me. I slide this readily between her labia and need not worry about using another finger to assist me locate her clitoris.

One problem that I have is the numbness of the hand. I haven’t encountered it yet, but I believe it might cause some hand numbing because the vibrations run along the toy’s entire length.

Overall rating: 5/5

Strength: 4/5

Volume: 2.5/5

It’s a bit noisy, but not loud enough to be heard from behind a closed door. Surely it’s powerful. And the cash is worth it. In view of running on two AAA batteries and being inexpensive, I believe this is a great vibrator to own for both speed queens and new toys.

I was given free of charge with http:/www.tabutoys.com/Picobong Ako in return for an honest and unbiased evaluation. This is consistent with the rules of the FTC.

My First Vibrator [ and Second and Third ]

I was 16 years old, and since I could remember, I wanted a vibrator. I was open to my colleagues as a very sexual teenager from the beginning and let them all understand how hopeless I was. And twice I was fortunate!

My friend, her boyfriend and I were at Spencer’s local mall and stopped looking at their black lights and posters. I feel like everybody stole from there their first vibrator. In my life, I had never robbed anything, so I denied. But after perusing all the other stores, once we got to the parking lot, they showed me what they had for me; a purple pocket rocket with interchangeable heads. I could have kissed both of them right there!

I loved my little rocket! I wish I could recall the business that produced it. It only lasted about a year, unfortunately, until half of the battery cap cracked. I was so pissed that I had to go back with my hand. I’m not yet one to get out of manual stimulation readily.

I was itching like crazy when I was 17 when I lastly turned 18 and was able to go to the porn shop and purchase a fresh vibrator. Fortunately, my age-old friend (thank you, Dizz!) amazed me with a grab bag from our local porn shop. Usually they were lube, condoms, and a vibrator. It’s been a classic vibrator looking like a mini lightsaber. I was lucky too! It wasn’t rosy. It was a turquoise brightness and as powerful as hell. Oh, how much I enjoyed that. I seldom had to alter batteries, and it soon became my greatest friend… until I broke it. Look at a trend? These stuff I’m wearing out!

I got my hands on a “massager” THEN (not yet 18). With separate plastic heads, it was one of those usual over – the-shoulder employment. I was lucky to have a head with a pointed tip. I remember I tried it for the first time. I’m fairly sure I’ve lasted 10 seconds and spent about half an hour gazing there in post-orgasm happiness. Then I came back to it, of course. It’s been incredible.

I’m really fortunate to have been secure and hygienic all my first sex toy experiences. They were all plastic and I looked after them as best as I could imagine. Until I was old and could buy my own toys, I didn’t begin experimenting with other, more frightening and dangerous products. Previously, I was too shy to ask my friends for non-hard plastic dildos or vaginal vibrators. I believed for sure individuals would believe differently about me because they wanted something insertable. Silly me, you know. These friends who helped me out in those days are still some of the most favorable sex folks I know! But once I got into insertable toys, I received my first experiences with stuff like Jelly, PVC, and so on. I never had a response, thank god, and I’m so pleased that I’ve learned better since those young days of despair! For this vagina, only silicone.

Review of VIP dildo by Tantus

The Tantus VIP dildo is now sadly on close-out sale as it is being discontinued (or at least that’s what I think close-outs are for. I haven’t talked to Tantus personally so I can’t talk for sure). I had to snatch one because it was on my wishlist for quite some time, like most Tantus dildos. The VIP is a medium to medium / large phallic silicone dildo with protruding testicles from the base as well. I know, you wouldn’t expect a lesbian couple to own something. But I must have it! In my head, I or my partner (whoever wears it in a harness) could possibly get more clitoral stimulation while pushing from the longer and wider base. I also believed the bigger base would make it simpler for me to regulate during masturbation, and I liked the curved shaft look.

The VIP has an insertable 6 3/4′′ length. The head diameter is 1 5/8′′, and it is 1 1/2′′ at the base of the shaft before the balls. The dildo’s base is 4 5/8′′ long, and 2 3/8′′ across, giving the wearer significant surface area to enable clitoral stimulation. The shaft has a prominent curve that is good for spot G and stimulation of the prostate. The VIP has a sculpted head that simulates the penis of the glans. The glans ‘ prominent corona is my favourite component of this dildo. I understand how much I enjoy texture I’m going on and on, but this under-textured dildo still satisfies me with its curve and slightly bulging, somewhat rigid textured head. I really enjoy it!

Tantus silicone, as always, is hypo-allergenic, free from phthalates, non-porous, readily sanitized, and free from latex. It’s simple to clean this silicone; soap and water, 10% bleach to water, top dishwasher rack (without detergent) on the sanitizing process, or boil it for 10 minutes.

The VIP is a very robust, non-plushy dildo, so be cautious on difficult thrusting. In contrast to the other Tantus dildos I’ve attempted, the finish on the VIP. It’s more of a matte velvet finish that has significantly cut other Tantus dildos on the usual drag and lint magnetism. The dildo’s foundation is the normal shiny Tantus silicone, and comparing how the two distinct finishes catch up on lint when I put the VIP on my bed demonstrates that there’s hardly any velvet finish. This is a huge deal for me as most of my fucking dildo happens with my partner, and we don’t always like being cautious. The VIP is not bendy or offering very much. It bends up in the same direction of its already-present curve somewhat readily, but only bends down enough to straighten the shaft fully. It will no longer bend beyond that.

The VIP comes in black, pink pearl and violet haze. I bought the violet haze because my favourite colors are violet and violet. The purple has the same beautiful, brilliant iridescence as my Tantus Purr, but the matte finish makes it look even better.

Now I enjoy it for my experience with it. I generally appreciate most silicone dildos I attempt for solo play, but I’m very picky with harness play with my partner. I never believed I’d discover a dildo that I’d like to[ maybe] like my Tantus Echo. The Echo feels bonded to her incredibly. I can readily get a gushing G spot orgasm. But as a queen supreme, the VIP is slowly taking over what my pussy requires. Oh, and you know, I really appreciate the balls! What?! Not for reasons of fantasy, but in fact they are helpful! I usually prop up the balls under my ass and go for clit stimulation with my salsa when I’m masturbating and get sick of thrusting the dildo, but don’t want to pull it out and throw it to the side. The balls assist me to maintain the dildo inserted and also offer me some rock-free stability on the cock. That’s an accomplishment in my book, but I’m a lazy masturbator and I love using both hands.

The thoughts of my GF; the balls make it easier for her to control when she wears it or thrusts it with her hands, both because the dildo doesn’t pull away as much in our Rodeoh, and also because it enables her to feel if the dildo slips out of me or not. She said that thrusting the base and balls between her legs is very simple and quick, and I can attest to that. The Rodeoh would normally stretch just a tad as she pulled out, so thrusts wouldn’t be as difficult because of that. She also said it was decent to stimulate the clitoral. Our Rodeoh makes dildos sit on her pubic bone rather high, which is good if we want to use a bullet vibrator in the pocket of the Rodeoh to get some clitoral stimulation, but it sucks if we skip a vibrator. The VIP balls fit beautifully in the Rodeoh and quickly pulled her off. She has one complaint about it being heavy, but what can you do?

Rating overall: 5/5

We enjoy it. When I had my eye on it for nearly a year, it’s precisely what I anticipated. No regrets to add and nothing else.

PinkCherry.com is now selling the VIP Super Soft. The Super Soft is the same design as the VIP, but it is made of cushier silicone from Tantus.
