Pulse Solo Lux

The Hot Octopuss Pulse Solo Lux with all the Accessories, including the particular Draw String Bag…

Vendor: Hot Octorpuss

Construction

In lack of better words the overall shape of the Pulse Solo Lux is like a hand axe – and for a good reason. It is the THE gensis of ALL handtools because it lies good in the hand. And so does this masturbator. It has a nicely rounded outer shell with a diameter of 67mm and the barrel shaped body tapered towards a pointy tip over the length of 106mm.

The front is made out of a sturdy polymere while the side and the back is clad in stiff yet soft to the touch silicone. The cover flows into two wings you wrap around the penis. Below the wings are three grooves and a 2.54mm diameter vibrating plate. On the left side of the body is the power button which is also used to shuffle through the programs as well as the power boost button. On the right side there are buttons to turn the power up and down. As an avid reader might know from my silicone anal toy reviews: Yes of course it attracts dust like nothing else and is something you just have to live with.

The entire toy is completely sealed to make it waterproof. This means, there are no interchangeable batteries. You charge the internal one through a magnetically attached lead you plug into an USB charger. The contacts on the Pulse Solo Lux should be cleaned well. When I charged it mid-scene a layer of cum actually was thick enough to prevent the charging. Also, lead must be perfectly aligned in order to charge. Luckily there is a little LED at the back which indicates if the toy is charging and when the process is done. The magnet is tiny so do not expect MagSafe level of connectivity or self-alignment. Even a little pull on the lead can break the connection, leaving your toy uncharged when you need it. It takes about 3h to charge the batteries completely. Depending on the mode and the intensity you get between 45 and 115 minutes of play out of one charge.

For storage especially during travel the Pulse Solo Lux comes with a satin drawstring back with cute little satin laces to close. At the risk of being called out for fragile masculinity but for a toy that calls himself “Guybrator” and wants to address stigma issues of erectile dysfunction, sex in the senior demographics, etc. I would have wished for a little bit more masculine packaging. But maybe this is just me.

A nifty add-on is the remote control. It comes in a silicone wrist band with a pin buckle. The silicon wraps so tightly around the unit that it is shielded from water and lube just like the masturbator itself. And, you have guessed it: Silicone = dust attraction.

Playing with the Pulse Solo Lux

For me and my testees the Pulse Solo Lux was a game changer how we looked and experienced self-induced orgasms. I had a lot of strong, literally mind blowing orgasms in my life. The first one with this toy is definitely top 5 and yet very hard to describe. Along with my testees I try my best to put into words what self-pleasuring with the Pulse Solo Lux means: The build-up when the tension in the groin rises, you balls get pulled closer to the body was longer and more intense than almost any solo orgasm in the past. When I reached the climax it was stronger, longer and more intense. But it did not stop there. The good, tingling feeling was prolonged through the vibration even after the orgasm ended. This order and intensity of sensations keeps on coming and coming every time you use the Pulse Solo Lux. In the time my testees and I have used it, the effect never wore off. So despite being skeptical about the rave reviews I have read online this little device delivered what was promised: Intense, longer lasting orgasms.

To fully unleash the potential of this toy takes some experimentation. The out of the box experience with pressing the continuously vibrating plate against your frenulum is horny and fun. But the real intense ride begins when you find your sweet spot which might not necessarily be directly onto the frenulum. As an uncut guy with a pierced dick, squeezing my foreskin between the PA and the vibrating plate is the best place for me: It stimulates the many and sensitive nerve endings of my foreskin while the piercing channels the vibration deep inside my urethra and glans. Another testee enjoyed pressing the vibrator onto the top of his glans while the wings massage his frenulum.

Speaking of the wings and pressure: Playing with the intenseness of the grip is also important part of playing with this Guybrator. Depending of the form of the day more or less pressure and thus transmission of the vibration to various points of the dick can prolong and intensify the orgasm. The Pulse Solo is a bit of an instrument you need to learn to play.

The vibration comes in six patterns:

  1. Continuously
  2. 5 sec of vibration and 5 sec of break
  3. 2 sec of vibration and 2 sec of break
  4. 1 sec of vibration and 1 sec of break
  5. 3 short impulses and 2 sec of vibrations with 1 sec break between them
  6. 1 sec of vibration, 1 sec break, 1 sec of vibration, 5 sec break

The first mode is merciless. Regardless if you are hard or not, the Pulse Solo WILL make you come quickly and hard. This even applies to people with erectile dysfunction or who have a hard time climaxing. Everybody in my testee panel, even the ones with medical problems were brought to an orgasm – quickly and lustful. The other programs’ effects are again highly individual. They are useful for pushing the orgasm back, enjoying the strong build-up. But some patterns for some guys were so “irritating” that they did not come at all which might be a feat when they are not in control of the device. Again, experimentation is king.

The same applies if you want to use it with lube. I absolutely hated it because my dick flopped around between the wings and the moving up and down motion of the shaft was not really my cup of tea. Many testees went crazy with horny ecstasy. Especially when playing with lube, I recommend using the remote control. The buttons on the Pulse Solo Lux need a bit of pressing power to respond. The resulting shifts and breaks of the stimulation can be annoying. The remote control buttons are easy to press and naturally allow another person to control your Guybrator.

Detail of the Transition from Hard Shell Front to Silicone Covered Back

The buttons on the device are so hard to press because of the waterproofness. This is a great feature because you can enjoy tension building up between your legs while relaxing inside the bathtub. But relevant to probably more people is how easy it makes cleaning the device. Submerge it in warm dish soap water, let the dried cum soak (a testee’s experience… don’t ask!), use a soft brush and you are ready to go again!

Since the best experience, finding the right point of no return and playing with it is highly individual, takes experience and even a slight shift to where the vibration is applied can drastically alter the sensation and result, it is not really a good toy for edging a (casual) partner. A testee bought one for him and his master and they are learning how to best apply it to keep him on the edge, begging for release. But it takes time! Naturally, especially in the program continuously the toy is perfect for quickly draining a sub and possibly milking him dry. I personally experienced the agony of a denied/ ruined orgasm by the Pulse Solo Lux when just when I was about to cross over the edge for an orgasm the battery died on me. If a top knows how a his sub reacts before reaching his release, this kind of play can be easily achieved by pulling the toy off his dick. Though I explicitly do not support such mean behavior of poor, innocent subs 😉

Best for Self Play – CBT, Edging & Milking

Oxballs Ballstretcher from Left to Right: Bullballs, Squeeze and Balls-T

In the last installment of this little series, I have already dipped a bit into the waters of CBT by looking at e-stim toys to torment your junk. Today will be all about manual toys to bring pain and pleasure to your genitals.

On numerous occasions I have talked about the effect of ball stretchers: Besides the obscene look and making your balls feel larger, they keep the testicles from being pulled towards your body when having an orgasm. This in combination with the bouncy motion during fucking or jerking makes your orgasms more intense. When starting out with ball stretching, I recommend the Oxballs ball stretcher made out of their various squishy materials. They take a bit of practice to put one, but if you make a mistake the effects are less painful than with a metal ball stretcher. Also, they cover a wider range of stretch which is important when you do not know your right size.

The MC Customs Ferrula

Ball stretchers are the perfect basis for ball slapping and busting. They provide a good grip and keep the balls from moving away. For ball busting, my toy of choice is the Oxballs Busting Paddle. It’s wide and heavy yet soft head delivers a strong and thuddy impact sensation on your balls. For more stingy sensation or slapping action, I prefer the MC Customs Ferrula paddle. Just be careful when you hit the balls with the Ferrula. Hitting the seminal ducts too often and hard can lead to permanent injuries.

Less painful but also requiring some care and attention when playing with them are vacuum cylinders from Thickwall Cylinder. Carefully pumping your dick, will make it puffy and more sensitive. So some people use pumping their dicks as foreplay for edging or milking. While pumping can help with erectile dysfunctions, the permanent increase in penis size has not yet been proving scientifically. Though, if you want to find out if your dick size will increase over the upcoming weeks of isolation, it will be an extremely enjoyable research process 😉

The Doxy Die Cast House in its Case

There are numerous different toy to make edging or milking your dick more pleasurable. The simple yet effective toys are the masturbators from Bad Dragon. They all have unique textures inside and are made out of supersoft silicone to accommodate even XL dicks. Unlike other masturbators the sleeve is not house in a case but you grip it directly. This way you can dose the pressure intensity just the way you need it. A step up the technology ladder is the Doxy Massager. Either use it on its own to tease the frenulum or add an attachment to pull over your glans, the strong vibrations will quickly get you off once, twice, thrice… What I often do is combining the Bad Dragon sleeve with the Doxy pressed against my perineum to get both my dick and my prostate stimulated. Finally, if you have tense muscles from the unusual workout at home, the Doxy is actually also a really good and strong massage tool! If you want the high end,  100% hands-free solution to your boiling balls, get yourself a Venus 2000. This milking machine will either keep you on the edge for hours or milk one consecutive orgasm out of your nuts after the other. It is a hefty investment, but it will bring you joy for years to come once this crazy situation is over.

In the next and final chapter of this little journey into Self Play I will take a look at Bondage Gear.

Fleshjack Ice

The Fleshlight Ice Vagina (wich I bought beliving it to be a Fleshjack Ice Mouth…)

Vendor: Regulation

Construction

The basic form of the Fleshjack is the one of a big flashlight and the body made out of sturdy and premium feeling plastic. The Ice version I am reviewing here is made out of clear plastic, but there are also black, blue and silver options. The toy is 25.5cm long with the cap screwed on.

The upper half is 12cm long and has a diameter of 6cm at the top and 6.4cm at the end. It is textured with groves for easier grip even with lubey fingers. The top can be unscrewed to create different vacuum intensities. The lower half is 13.5cm long and has a diameter of 9.4cm. At the end there is a cap which protects the masturbation sleeve.

Detail of the Fleshjack’s Sleeve

The sleeves are made out of Fleshjack’s exclusive SuperSkin which takes up warmth easily and feels like the real deal when properly lubed up. Sadly like all silicone based materials dust sticks to it very well. With the Ice version you can choose between a mouth, a butt, a neutral and vagina (which I accidently because in my ignorance of female genitals I mistook it for a mouth…) exterior shape. On the inside all three sleeves are the same.

Playing with the Fleshjack Ice

Using the Fleshjack is quite easy: Apply loads of lube onto the (more or less) hard penis, unscrew both caps, stick it inside the sleeve and start moving the Fleshjack up and down. The suction intensity can be varied by the degree the top cap is screwed on. One thing to make the experience even more pleasurable is to let warm water run through the sleeve’s hole to warm the material. Also the moisture will increase the lube’s slickness.

Detail of the Exterior of a Fleshjack

As you might imagine the Fleshjack is a good toy for edging and milking. Since the interior of the sleeve has differently textured areas the best way to approach an edging is slowly work your way up through the sections, stroke the dick a bit with the texture and thus figure out to which texture the sub reacts best. Than start the game of tease and denial.

For a more direct control and connection to the sub I recommend taking the sleeve out and work it on the sub’s dick. This has several advantages: You can more precisely control the pressure, you can compress the sleeve also length wise which alters the sensation of the texture and you can combine it with a massager. Theoretically  you can apply a massager to the body or even use a special massager head Fleshjack attachment but most of the vibration is absorbed by the hard material (especially with the attachment which in my opinion is completely rubbish! Attachments I can endorse are the wall mounts for humping you Fleshjack in the shower [or the kitchen floor like a friend of mine does…] or all the fuck machine mounts I have tested so far). One of the meanest things you can do is put a finger vibrator into the top of the sleeve until it touches the glans for additional stimulation.

Detail of the Groves for better Grip

In both scenarios the transparent material added to the mindfuck of the sub who could see his dick being pleasured/ tormented inside the Fleshjack.

As already written the Fleshjack works best with loads of water-based (!)lube. I personally use Swiss Navy Waterbased Lube with my Fleshjack because it stays slick for a long time and isn’t too thick. Using silicone, hybrid or oil based lubes will at best discolor the sleeve, at worst dissolve it!

Detail of the Cap and Opening for the Suction Intensity

Cleaning the Fleshjack is easy: Disassemble the body, take the sleeve out and was it in warm dish soap water. Drying and reassembling it however is a bit of a pain in the ass. Wait until the body and the outside of the sleeve are dry and put the sleeve back into the body. Since unlubricated the sleeve is sticky this can be quite tricky. Then put the Fleshjack upright with both caps off and wait for the water inside to drop down/ evaporate. Putting the caps on before the sleeve is entirely dry will result in mold!

Regulation 10 Speed Wand Massager with Head

Vendor: Regulation

The Regulation 10 Speed Magic Wand Massager with the Head Attachement

Just like with the Mr S Quick Choking Collar I am reviewing two toys which simply belong together: The 10 Speed Wand Massager and the matching head attachment. The pics show the cord version because my wireless one is currently lent out to a friend.

Construction

The 10 Speed Wand Massager comes in classic black with a red accent that connects the head with the body. The head has a diameter of 6cm, is 6.2cm high and is covered by a soft, textured cover which can be taken off for a more intense stimulation. It has the same head size as most wand massagers so you can almost put any available accessory on this wand.

The body 24cm long and its diameter decreases from 5.9cm to 3.4cm. At the end there is a little tulip shaped thickening for a comfortable and secure grip. The body is made out of black, sturdy plastic which has a quality feel. In the middle of the body there is a control panel with two buttons: One for on and off, anther for the speed setting.

Detail of the Head with its Textured Cover

The Wand Massager Head follows the T-shape design of the popular Humming Bird attachments with a tube diameter of 3.6cm but is it made out of soft black silicone. On the inside of the tube there three rows of small silicone spikes followed by curved ridges and on the other side there are four rows of perpendicular ridges. Below the tube there is a foot which allows the attachment to be securely put on all wand massagers with a 60mm diameter head.

Detail of one side of the Head Attachment’s Texture

Playing with the Toy

The most often used purpose of the massager is obviously edging and milking. Depending on the effect either focus on the glans, especially the frenulum (for milking), or the shaft, the balls and especially when you are edging with your hand the perineum. On the glans the different speed settings do not really matter. Even the lowest setting will push most uncut guys over the edge pretty soon. On the other body parts finding the right setting can mean the difference between “I’m going to cum.” and “PLEASE! Let me FINALLY get released!”

Detail of one side of the Head Attachment’s Texture

For milking the head attachment is pretty nifty. Put it on the massager’s head, lube the dick well, put plenty of lube on the inside and slide it over the dick. I would recommend not too slick water-based lube (silicone lube will disintegrate the toy!) for it; I use Swiss Navy for it. Than slide it over the dick and depending on your intention and degree of sadism slide it up and down the shaft somewhere between tenderly and vigorously. What sets this head attachment apart from other Humming Bird style ones that the texture on the inside is not soft and round but rather “spiky” which add an interesting sensation on the glans. Depending on the sensitivity and the side you use it can almost be agonizing. Depending on the dick size I recommend holding onto the attachment while sliding up and down. Otherwise it might come off.

Beyond CBT the massager is good for intensifying existing toys. Most toys – like clamps or ball stretchers – lose their sensation infliction potential after some time because the nerves get numb. So adding a bit of vibration there can wake the nerves up. For this kind of play I recommend removing the head’s cover to the vibration power gets directly transmitted to the toys. Especially in the higher setting this works great with firm ass toys. The vibrations get transmitted into the sphincter and ideally onto the prostate which drives most bottoms nuts in a good way. And since it is wireless you can travel around the sub’s body “reactivating” all the toys you put onto him.

Conclusion: Nifty toy for edge play
