The Ripple by Made To Pleasure

The Ripple —— £50.00

Joy & Dixie
Joy: “Damn! It’s been over 6 months since we’ve posted a review. But we have an excuse; we’ve been on the road…again. As we’ve said before, we sometimes get fed up with our day jobs and just say fuck it. We hop in our RV and hit the road. It does a person good to simply get up and go see something of the world around her.”
Dixie: “But here’s the thing; despite our footloose wanderlust, we never leave home without the essentials. And for us that means sex toys. We picked up our traveling companion back in March, just before we left on our road trip.”
Joy: “And what a brilliant companion The Ripple turned out to be. We loves us some fancy dildos and this beautiful double-header deeply satisfies. For those unfamiliar with the term ‘double-header’, that just means you can insert either end.”
Dixie: “The operative word for me is ‘deeply’. The Ripple is just over 6” long and just under an inch and a half in diameter. It’s not too big, it’s not too small; it is just right! And since it doesn’t use batteries, nor does it plug-in, it is the perfect travel buddy.”
Joy: “And when I said fancy; I meant it! The Ripple is gorgeous. This is our first encounter with an insertable made out of acrylic (aka Lucite). It’s crystal clear, just like glass. But it’s much lighter. It also shares a lot of the other, more familiar properties of glass — waterproof, nonporous, phthalates-free, hypoallergenic and latex-free. You can use whatever kind of lube you want with The Ripple. And it cleans up as easily.”
Dixie: “Acrylic is another ideal material for a sharable toy. Mild soap and warm water does just fine for everyday cleaning. But you can sanitize it for sharing by wiping it down with a lint-free towel moistened with peroxide, rubbing alcohol or a 10% bleach solution.”
Joy: “Both Dixie and I prefer a textured dildo. And in this regard The Ripple doesn’t disappoint. The wave, ribbed or rippled end is very nice for an in and out motion. And the bullet-shaped end is all about your G-spot. The Ripple comes packaged with a bullet vibe, but we thought that was a waste of time.”
Dixie: “Oh, and don’t forget that acrylic is dandy for sensation play. It can be chilled and warmed for extra sensations. I also want to comment about the packaging. The Ripple comes in an elegant embossed black matte gift box. Inside the box you’ll find The Ripple wrapped in black crêpe paper lying on a bed of black felt. It is tied in place with a black satin ribbon. It’s a totally stylish presentation, but all the components are biodegradable. Kudos to this boutique toy company for their GREEN outlook!”
Joy: “Speaking of made to pleasure. We’d be remiss if we didn’t tell you that this company will custom make any toy you design using their design tool on their website. How cool is that?”
Dixie: “And if you want your insertable to be 99.9% pure gold or silver-plated then look no further. They’ll do that for you too.”
Joy: “I don’t know; as much as I love my pussy, and I do love it a lot, does it need a gilded dildo? Probably not, but that’s just me.”
Dixie: “It is just you. Because I can tell you for certain; if someone turned me on to a silver or gold insertable I’d groove on it big time. I guess I’m just one of your super elegant dykes.”
Joy: “Yeah, that’s the very first thing I’d say about you; you’re super elegant. Like when we in the RV you’re totally elegant in your plaid shirt and Birkenstocks.”

The Curve

The Curve —— £95.00

Mick & Chuck
Mick: “Damn, it’s been ages since we submitted a review. Our last review was way back in October. We went on a long vacation in December and when we got back in late January, all the toys on hand had been farmed out. So we had to wait our turn.”
Chuck: “So glad we did, because we scored with The Curve. The company website suggests that The Curve is designed as a vaginal dildo. OK! But guess what; neither Mick nor I have a vagina and we still loved this toy.”
Mick: “That’s right! I would say that I have a mangina, except I fuckin’ hate that fruity term. I have an asshole and I have a prostate and The Curve is fantastic in the one and on the other.”
Chuck: “The Curve is made of crystal clear acrylic (aka Lucite). It has the look and feel of glass, but it is definitely not glass. For one thing, it’s lighter than glass. But I think it’s just as pretty as glass.”
Mick: “Just take a look at this beauty. The insertable end is tulip-shaped. This narrows down to a notch, kinda like a butt plug would have. Then it flares out again, followed by another notch. Finally, there’s a knob-shaped hilt or handle, which offers you a nice grip for maneuvering The Curve to just the right P-spot positioning and/or for some pumping or thrusting action.”
Chuck: “The Curve also comes with a pretty lame bullet vibe. You know, the kind that uses those tiny watch batteries. At any rate, we didn’t even bother. We thought the inclusion of a bullet vibe actually took away from the presentation of this remarkable toy.”
Mick: “Supposedly the bullet vibe is for clitoral stimulation while The Curve is pleasuring a chick’s pussy. Whatever!”
Chuck: “So this beautiful dildo is just one of the ‘off the peg’ designs available from Made To Pleasure. But here’s the really cool part; you can design your own unique toy using their handy-dandy design tool. How fabulous is that?”
Mick: “I can’t think of any other toy company that offers such a service. So they get really high marks for creativity. Oh, and if you have money to burn, you can get your Made To Pleasure product plated in either gold or silver.”
Chuck: “Right on! I think we should also commend this company for their GREEN packaging. The sophisticated black on black in black packaging is both beautiful and totally recyclable. There’s no needless plastic to clog landfills.”
Mick: “The acrylic material is nonporous, phthalates-free, hypoallergenic and latex-free. The Curve is totally smooth, there are no seams or joints and it’s totally waterproof. Perfect for use in the shower or bath.”
Chuck: “Being waterproof also makes it a snap to clean. Mild soap and warm water does just fine for everyday cleaning. But you can also wipe it down with a lint-free towel moistened with peroxide, rubbing alcohol or a 10% bleach solution.”
Mick: “I’m often partial to more pliable materials, like silicone, for my insertables. But sometimes a guy just really needs something hard. And The Curve is ideal for those special moments.”
Chuck: “I liked the fact that we could add the extra thrill of temperature play with this beauty. Warm it, chill it; go ahead, drive yourself or someone else wild.”
Mick: “We are delighted to give The Curve get our highest rating.”
Chuck: “And ya know, if we all patronize the companies out there that are doing their part to GREEN our sex play, maybe more companies will get on the bandwagon.”

The Pearl by Made To Pleasure

The Pearl —— £95.00

Gina & Kevin
Gina: “After the recent epic fail of one of our favorite vibes, (you can read about that HERE). Kevin and I were so happy to turn our attention to a pleasure product that is stunningly elegant in its simplicity. We are elated to share with you the Pearl just one of the beautiful designs from the up and coming boutique toy company, Made To Pleasure.”
Kevin: “So true! The Made To Pleasure company got my attention immediately for the clever play on words that is their company name. But it also describes them to a tee. You see, you can actually design your own toy (made to order) or choose from the classic designs already created. You simply can’t get more accommodating than that.”
Gina: “I love the idea that anyone of us could design a unique toy for ourselves by simply using the design template on their site. I had fun just playing around with their design tool. Mmm, ‘design tool’, that sounds dirty!”
Kevin: “The Pearl also introduces us to a completely new material — acrylic (aka Lucite). We’ve not seen anything like this before. At first glance, one would guess the crystal-clear Pearl is glass. But it’s not. It shares a lot of the same properties as a quality glass pleasure product, but acrylic is lighter. And for the truly decadent among us, you can order a 99.9% pure gold and silver-plated design.”
Gina: “Yeah, wouldn’t that be spectacular! The Pearl comes in a stylish embossed black matte gift box. Inside the box you’ll find the Pearl wrapped, yet again, in black crêpe paper lying on a swath of black felt. It is tied in place with a satin ribbon. The presentation is dramatically chic; yet all of the packaging components are biodegradable. Very Nice; very smart!”
Kevin: “The Pearl also comes with a bullet vibe and three watch-sized batteries. You can use it apart from the Pearl, as a stand-alone clit vibe. Or you could attach it to the Pearl to make the whole dildo vibrate. We tried both methods. We attached the vibe to the Pearl using one of my silicone cockrings, although I suppose you could use a rubber band just as well!”
Gina: “Frankly, I found the bullet was a nuisance, both as a stand-alone vibe or attached to the dildo. There’s no need to gild this lily. I preferred to use the Pearl by its beautiful self. The gradually increasing (or decreasing) ridges provided me with all the sensations I needed. I say increasing or decreasing, because the Pearl is a double-header. You can use either end. And add to this the delightful feature that the Pearl can be chilled and warmed for added sensations; well I was in heaven. Oh, and you can use any sort of lube you’d like on this beauty.”
Kevin: “I’ve used the Pearl on myself too. So I have a bone to pick with the company’s mission statement. They write ’Made To Pleasure’s raison d’etre is simple – to bring the ultimate pleasure to women through toys that are beautiful to look at, and a pleasure to use.’ Really? Your toys are just for women? What are we, all the men out here, chopped liver? I mean, come on; why be so exclusive? Men have been using dildos for just as long as women have.”
Gina: “Yeah, why the exclucivity? I think it’s great that you are appealing primarily to women. Your site is lovely and sensual, but I agree with Kevin. In this day and age, do we really have to discriminate?”
Kevin: “After all the Pearl is made to be shared. Because it’s acrylic, it’s nonporous, phthalates-free, hypoallergenic and latex-free. There are no seams; it’s totally waterproof so it’s easily cleaned. Mild soap and warm water does just fine for everyday cleaning. You can also wipe it down with a lint-free towel moistened with peroxide, rubbing alcohol or a 10% bleach solution as I see fit.”
Gina: “However, unlike glass, you can’t toss the Pearl in the dishwasher or boil it. So be aware of that. But with proper care, it will last a lifetime.”
Kevin: “Speaking of proper care, we’ve continued to use the gift box it came in for storing the Pearl. We just tie it back up into felt bed. However, at some point the Made To Pleasure people might consider including a drawstring storage bag instead of just the felt pad. That would make traveling with the Pearl a whole lot easier.”
Gina: “The Pearl is an exquisite addition to our toy chest. G-spot and P-spot (prostate) pleasuring abounds.”
Kevin: “Exactly! Like I said earlier, despite the heavy marketing toward women, I can assure you that this beautiful pleasure product would not be out of place in a guy’s toy collection. It’s stylish but manly.”
Gina: “I look forward to more extraordinary pleasure products from this innovative company.”
