Years ago Jackie Collins gave me my first vibrator. It seemed to be a relation to the Rabbit but had a leopardskin print all over it. Jackie was a pioneer of so many things and she used to think that knowing how to cook and self-pleasure were the staples of a life as an independent and therefore desirable woman. A kind of liberate way of saying be a whore in the bedroom and a chef in the kitchen and any man’s yours. More of that later…
I liked the leopard Rabbit. It did make quite a noise before I got to make any. It wasn’t exactly discreet. It was cumbersome and you’d never want to take it in hand luggage. There was a time though when I couldn’t be without it. Just like people are addicted to chocolate, coffee, Martini’s, I was addicted to the orgasm or rather orgasms. With the Rabbit, a basic whirring vibrating while the ears bit tickled on the clitoris, I could come pretty deeply and multiply. Is it dangerous to have toys as your main sexual fulfilment? Does it mean you demand less of your lover? Not really but I think it helped not be clingy. Of course, some people love to watch other people coming with their toys. It’s quite a thing. Not so for me but it’s always one to remember. Sometimes they melt faster than you.
So Divine tell me that 52% of women own a vibrator and 24% of women feel more sexually satisfied because of their vibrator. 81% say they no longer view using sex toys as a taboo so So Divine has created a new and exciting sex toy brand with the belief that everyone should enjoy a safe and healthy sex life. So Divine wants to empower women by helping them reach new sexual aspirations. Better sex with or without a partner. What’s not to love?
Their range is very bright and very major and can be bought in retailers such as Asda and Ocado. No having to face a sleazy sex shop or worse, endless internet creations being delivered when you know your postman and he knows what it is – unless of course, you’re having sex with your postman – but as my postman told me very clearly about the range of dildo’s that were delivered to my next door neighbour I didn’t particularly want to share that myself.
What’s also exciting about So Divine is prices start from £5.99. I was very excited to play with my Rose Gold Halo Vibrating Bullet only £7.99 and probably the most pleasure one can get for under £10 in a lifetime. It’s cute, it’s tiny, so tiny in fact the cat mistook it for his laser toys. The bullet is powerful yet tiny. You could pop it in a handbag or even a wallet. Discreet and dominant it has powerful single speed vibrations, strong yet quiet. Nothing like the noisy Rabbit.
Obviously, you can work your toys as foreplay or a sex add or just solo. Something to perk up your morning or evening. The Rose Gold Bullet has a tapered tip for focused play. I found it was very focused anyway and came five times in as many minutes. The range does have larger vibrators such as the Ooh La La Flower. The flower power feels super silky and it’s like a whole dance class. 10 vibration modes, 3 speeds and 7 pulsating patterns.
It has a USB and magnetic recharge. Lasts for 2 hours but don’t worry, you won’t last 2 hours with this. The Flower vibrator with its tulip tip is priced at £34.99 but if you’re thinking of stocking fillers the So Divine Vibrating Bullet which comes in Halo Rose Gold, French Kiss Pink and Need You Tonight Silver is surely unbeatable.
