Well, I’ve been remiss to our fantastic sponsor, AdamEve.com, by not reviewing the fantastic sex toys and goodies they sent more promptly! But trust me, my friends have had a lot of fun product-testing this one for me! Indeed, couples were lined up down the street.
The Wedge is billed as “the sex bed” you’ve always dreamed of” and “great for G-spot action!” And the idea is pretty simple: raise the luscious booty of your sweetie to allow for easier and deeper vaginal and anal penetration without straining the lower back or thighs of the, um, thrustee.
My question was primarily, “Is this any better than a pillow?” Well, in a few ways, yes. The foam is denser than a pillow’s, so it gives firmer support and won’t collapse under your body weight. And the removable cover is washable nylon, so you don’t have to worry as much about all that sticky Astroglide or Liquid Silk soaking into the cushion and funking up your favorite sex pillow. For a neat freak like me, washability of just about anything I own is a very big deal. Score one in that category!
Our product testers (yes, it’s a rough life!) said:
The best thing about The Wedge is that it makes you want to brainstorm different ways of using it. In the end, I suspect many of the positions we found for it could also be achieved with an ordinary fluffy pillow or two, but there is no denying that The Wedge makes for some very comfortable missionary and doggie sex, with plenty of room for hands around the clit.
Indeed. Actually, the Wedge does come with a full-color booklet of different positions to try, so when the package arrives in the mail, you don’t even have to rely on your own creativity or fall back onto your favorite positions. Heck, why not try everything listed in the brochure, just to make super-sure you’re getting your money’s worth, right? There might even be a few options in there that might just be a tad easier with the extra foamy support!

Review of Astro Ride
First, the basics: Astro Ride is the first toy from Adam and Eve that I got to try. It’s a ribbed, flexible, waterproof anal vibrator, and it looks like this:
OK, now the fun begins! We first tried inserting it just by itself, but it’s a bit big at the tip, so we prepped the ass with a few fingers and a more tapered anal toy first. Once this puppy was in, however… I think the immediate response was, “OK. New. Favorite. Toy!” The vibrations are positively ecstatic and unlike anything I’d felt before. Why did it take me so long to get a vibrating anal toy?? But just for fun, we paired it with a vaginal vibrator as well. Turns out that was a bit too much stimulation, so we switched strategies. I was curious was his experience would be, so we left the Astro Ride in (yay for me!) and tried some good, old-fashioned PIV sex.
The hardest part was figuring out the best position. Since the Astro Ride doesn’t have a flared base, it can be a bit tough to keep inside and a-vibin’ in some sexual positions. We tried girl on top first, which was a bit awkward until I leaned in closer to him, which gave him a delightful sensation. His response was something like “Wow wow wow wow wow,” I believe.
Next up was missionary, which worked the best. I didn’t have to worry about the Astro Ride falling out, and he had control of his own penetration, which he ended up doing shallower than usual to take advantage of the ring of vibey goodness being transmitted through my urethral sponge. His response? “I think if you were a gay man, this would be a slice of heaven!” Mine? This is one of the most relaxing toys I’ve experienced.
“People say you need to take the stick out of your butt. I think that you need to get the stick in your butt and vibrating.” Soooo relaxing; it was better than a massage!

Question is, how will the Wet Spots’ song, You Can’t Buy a Dildo in Texas change now that you CAN buy a dildo in Texas?
Yes, there are medical uses for vibrators.
In fact, as this article reminds us, vibrators were originally designed to treat “hysteria” in women. This has always led me to imagine a lot of women faking “hysteria” in order to go visit the doctor, who presumably knew where the clitoris is and how to treat it. I mean, hey, when I went without orgasms for too long, I get pretty grouchy, too. I wonder if “hysteria” was just fancy term for “raving bitch” back then?
I’ve used orgasms to treat headaches, sinus infections and even sleeplessness. What have YOU used your sex toys to treat?
