This is the sex toy that has the world buzzing. Well, not really buzzing, because that is not what the Womanizer is about.
When you spend a lot of time with sex toys and products, it is easy to expect certain standards. The creme de la creme of the sex toy industry tend to be sleek with minimal design, meet body safe requirements, feature sturdy construction and boast a distinct name. These are the hallmarks that often signify the arrival of a quality product.
Well, the Womanizer hits one of those pillars…it also happens to be an extremely pleasurable product.
To be clear, I’m reporting the experiences of my partner. I don’t have a clitoris—the anatomy the Womanizer is specifically meant to pleasure. So, while I may not be a fan of the name or design and worry about the long-term sustainability of the construction, I am not, ultimately the market for the product. So, I sat back with pen (yeah pen) in hand and observed.
And what did I see? I saw pleasure. I saw orgasms. I saw smiles.
As she’s not big on flowering description, my partner described the Womanizer a couple of different ways. The first time I used it on it and while she did enjoy it, she deem the sensation “a bit weird.” This could be because it does not feel like a traditional vibrator. Instead, the Womanizer uses “pleasure air technology” and can, apparently, allow people with sensitive clits the possibility of orgasm without actually touching the toy to their body. That would be pretty remarkable, but wasn’t our experience.
On another day, she used the Womanizer on her own and thoroughly enjoyed it. No weird feelings at all this time. I noted that she did experience one of the quicker orgasm I’ve seen her enjoy. Featuring 5 speed settings, she got up to number 3 and rode that wave to pleasure. She’s curious to try more powerful settings but hasn’t made it there yet.
One observation my partner made contradicts one of my preconceived opinions on what a quality sex toy should be. She liked the lightness of the toy. I fear it might not last in the long-term because of that, but she enjoys that it isn’t as heavy as other items in our pleasure chest. Time will tell.
As noted, the Womanizer directly and specifically stimulates the clitoris, so it is a specialized toy. If this type of stimulation does not appeal or work for you, then this toy might not be a good fit. Because it does feature a good range of speed settings, I do think there is the potential for pleasure for people along both ends of the spectrum of clitoral sensitivity.
In the end, The Womanizer is a perfect example of the old maxim “don’t judge a book by its cover.” This is a very good addition to your collection!

I had a blast hosting this year’s Sex City Spring Membership show! Having Fatima Mechtab from Oasis Aqualounge, Jason Armstrong and Rebecca Kava in the studio made it so good. And we were joined by Taylor J. Mace on the phone for a bit which was a bonus! All these folks do great things in the sex community and them taking their time to help out our campaign was greatly appreciated.
Take a listen to the whole show of sexy shenanigans and please become a member or donate to CIUT—the station that let’s us talk all about sex, sexuality and gender on the air!

I was honoured to be asked to work on this amazing new book by Jason Armstrong. Solosexual: Portrait of a Masturbator is a stunning look into the world of those for whom masturbation—”The Bate”—is their prime sexual interest. Jason’s writing is unabashed memoir, a stirring manifesto and an investigation into living a life in which masturbation is one’s primary sexual outlet.
It felt good to ring in the new year with such a great group of guests on my first Sex City of 2016. It was lovely to welcome back Fatima from Oasis Aqualounge to hear about their upcoming 3rd year anniversary edition of Sapphic Aquatica. After meeting at Glad Day Bookshop last month, it was great to talk with Soma Stanford more about her writing of her lesbian erotic novel Jade Wallace. And more about the politics and meaning of Jordan B. Wright‘s awesome songs was a great set up for the launch of his CD, Everything Blue, at the end of the month.
I am thrilled to be hosting my second #SexTalkTuesday on December 1!
Check out the conversation on December 1 at 3PM EST when we will be discussing Sex & Philanthropy! We will be eager to hear your ideas on giving to sex-related causes, people, events and organizations. How people share their resources is a complex idea, and whether they want to extend generosity to the sexual world is a unique situation.
I hope to hear from you on December 1, 3PM EST for Sex Talk Tuesday!
