The Clit List is grateful for this guest review of the Sh! Desire Vibrator. The Clit List would like to reiterate that we always welcome and encourage your input to the site, so if you would also like to provide a review or recommendation to The Clit List, please email for more details. 


This feels good on the inside! It’s so smooth and soft, and we love its curve. Most vagina’s tilt one way or the other (slightly to the left, a bit to the right, up or down, it depends on the design of your own muff). The curve in this toy means it’s easy to hold and insert according to the way your own vagina curves.

The width of this toy gets slimmer in the middle section, while the front and end is wider. Depending on your vagina’s shape, this may or may not work, but it’s good to find out. This slim section makes it easier to move in and (nearly) out without too much friction against the vaginal walls, so it’s a gentler way of re-introducing your vagina to different speeds, rhythms and angles of penetration, and figuring out which may be triggering to you.

If you’re up for having penetrative sex with someone else again, then knowing these things will make clear communication easier when you’re with them. If you prefer solo sex but miss the feeling of penetration, it curves like some penises do, but without having a man and his needs to think about.

Oh also, it has TWENTY different vibration levels and patterns. If you have a night in, you could try them all (although that might be a bit much for one wanking session), note down the ones you like and use those patterns and rhythms in future masturbation. Really good for exploration on so many levels.

The Clit List is grateful for this guest review of the rocks-off finger tingles vibrator. The Clit List welcomes and encourages your input, so if you would also like to provide a review to The Clit List, please email for more details. 

Rocks-off finger tingles vibrator

This is the perfect toy if you’re looking for a gentle way to start off masturbating again. It’s excellent for tense pelvic muscles, which many of us have the first time we start having sex again. You turn the vibrator onto the setting you want, and then put your finger through the hole. This sends vibrations down your finger, so your finger becomes the vibrator.

This means that rather than inserting a sex toy, you can use your own finger(s) for wanking. That works well because you can feel the inside of your vagina and get to know its contours and textures better, as well as fingers being more flexible for moving along your vagina’s individual tilts and turns than a plastic toy.

It has seven vibration settings. The first three settings are continuous vibrations, which get stronger as you move from setting one to three. The fourth to the seventh are different types of start-stop vibrations, so you can explore different strengths and rhythms and see what your fanny likes best.

Another use we found – the end of the toy is shaped like a tongue – so you can use this to remind your vagina of tongue flicks received during oral sex, if you enjoyed that at one time. If that doesn’t work for you, ignore that bit and focus on your fingers.

We-Vibe 4 Plus

Looking for a new toy to enjoy with your partner? This is for you! This vibrator that can be placed internally, remain during intercourse, and can be operated by your partner via a phone app! It is hands-free, hugs the clit and provides G-spot stimulation whether in the same room or on different continents. It is waterproof, rechargeable, features 10 vibrating modes, and can switch between G-spot and clitoral stimulation at will.

Note however, that while the toy has been made into a smaller size recently, there are still some women who indicate that the length of the toy is unsuitable for them and does not reach right onto the G-Spot. Our recommendation is to go into a shop that you trust, view the product and ensure it is the right fit for you (and your partner!). You can find stores that stock the toy via the manufacturers website.

BodyWand Plug-in

This BodyWand is larger than many other wands, fitting comfortably in hand, yet still light which helps for precision over and around sore muscles or intimate areas. It runs on AC power, therefore needs a power outlet to use, however has a long cord so that the user can have some distance from the outlet to enjoy. Also the wand has a dial that allows the user to turn up the vibrations gradually, rather than many other body wands that are on-off or have staged scaling, and is surprisingly quiet for the power of the vibrations. If you’re looking for a wand, this truly is a great one to try!

Just make sure that when buying wands that you purchase from direct dealers (such as the one suggested), rather than Amazon etc, so that you can be sure that it is not a knock-off product that is more likely to have faults that could affect the life of the product and be dangerous to the user.

Embrace Lovers Cock Ring Pink

For those looking for a small vibrator to use of themselves as well as kink it up with a partner, this product might interest you.

It comes with a stretchy and comfortable enhancer whereby you are able to remove the vibrator from the ring for self-pleasure when desired. It also has 7 functions of intense vibration, pulsation and escalation as well as being made of fully waterproof body-safe silicone. As it is an upwards-facing cock ring, it can provide much more pleasure than the normal rings where the vibrator is leant to the side. As a result you can get a lot more targeted action on your clitoris that either partner can control.

Only one warning – make sure the ring fits to the size of your partner, especially if you also want to circle the testicles, as an ill fit will make for a less than pleasant experience.


Available for £24.24, in black, pink and purple colours from Amazon UK.

It comes with 10 different vibration levels, escalation and pulse patterns as well as being made of body-safe silicone that’s hypoallergenic and contains no latex or phthalates.


Available for £24 from Sh! Women’s Erotic Emporium.
