Community Reviews

Our Cara Sutra community reviews are adult product reviews which have been written by the Cara Sutra sex blog community as well as other guests. These reviews were previously part of the Pleasure Panel project; this was an outsourced sex toy reviews feature which ran between 2015 and 2019 and was an incredibly popular monthly activity.

Thanks to the Cara Sutra community, the number of adult toy reviews and reviews for other bedroom gear grew enormously during the time the project was active. Sex toy shops and adult product retailers would send me a box of their products they’d like honest reviews for. Then, I would then distribute them to members of the team after monthly 'rounds' where the Panel would volunteer for the item of their choice. Obviously the prospect of 'free sex toys' is always incredibly appealing to people, and in time I was forced to limit the number of new members to those who were Cara Sutra Patrons only, who had pledged more than $5 a month at Patreon towards my expenses and the general running of my blog and the reviews project.

Mid-2019 it was decided that it was time for the Pleasure Panel to close, sadly, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it was taking far too much of my time each month to arrange sourcing new review items, creating the draft community reviews and list of linked items for the team to volunteer for, then chasing up people’s reviews when they were late. Secondly, the amount of reviews which remained late or indeed never arrived at all meant that less adult products were being sent by adult business brands for the team to review, as well as discouraging me from continuing the project in general.

A number of Pleasure Panel members remain as loyal and trustworthy reviewers who submit their reviews of products they’ve bought or been sent from time to time. I hope you enjoy reading all of our community reviews below – there are reviews for pretty much everything! All reviews not written by myself will appear under this category.

Fifty Shades Darker Clit Clamp Review

Fifty Shades Darker Clit Clamp Review

10 out of 10
Those who know me know that I’m pretty much up for anything. However, the arrival of the Fifty Shades Darker Clit Clamp from did cause me to cross my legs and whimper for a short time. In short, the thought of clamping anything onto my precious privates was terrifying! But, in the name of science I bit the bullet, locked the front door and got ready to experiment.

Fifty Shades Darker Kinky Fuckery Wild Couples Kit Review

8 out of 10
With the release of the Fifty Shades of Grey books, then movies, came a whole host of fascinating kinky toys. Hardcore 50 Shades fans are no longer classed as 'newbies' to BDSM; some couples have graduated from beginner’s bondage to the more adventurous bondage kits. The Fifty Shades Darker Kinky Fuckery Wild Couples Kit is absolutely suitable for beginners to BDSM, but is also suitable for those who want to go a little further.

When I saw the Spherespecs featured in ETO Magazine, I contacted the Spherespecs company immediately and begged for the chance to review this Virtual Reality headset. The amount of content on the internet that can be enjoyed with a Virtual Reality headset is growing every day, so this was a great opportunity to enjoy my favourite films in 3D.

I've been trying out budget sex toys recently, to see whether it's possible to find a good quality and effective sex toy without breaking the bank. One of the lower priced toys I found, & wanted to try, was the Shots Toys Mini Vibrating Fingertip Pleaser which cost just £4.99.

NS Novelties Crystal Premium Glass Eggs Review

9 out of 10
Price:
£19.99
Materials:
Glass
I was delighted to receive the NS Novelties Crystal Premium Glass Eggs to review. I adore glass toys but had never tried glass kegel eggs before. I have had a serious problem with your standard kegel exercisers, getting them to 'fit' is a nightmare but I think it was more to do with the shape so was hoping I'd have more luck with these egg shaped ones.

Materials:
TPR
The NMC Rabbit Loop Vibrating Cock Ring is made from phthalate free, non-toxic material. This rabbit-shaped cock ring has been specifically designed to provide both pleasure for him and her. The rabbit not only makes the cock ring look a little prettier, the ears also offer clitoral stimulation during intercourse.

John Thomas Toys Parasite Platinum Silicone Dildo Review

8 out of 10
The Parasite is, without doubt, the oddest looking dildo I've ever seen. And I've seen a lot of fantasy dildos. But it's that uniqueness that draws me to it. It doesn't look even remotely penis-shaped, and I suspect you could hide it in plain sight on a hallway shelf alongside other movie props and quirky memorabilia. It's pretty hideous, actually, but this is exactly why I was delighted at the thought of getting penetrated by it.

John Thomas Toys Beastli Platinum Silicone Dildo Review

9 out of 10
Beastli is a gentle demon, really, but his member is so full of devilishly delightful textures that you couldn't possibly say no to such a handsome beast. You'll coax him out of the forest, scream in delight as his demonic head probes your inner depths, and suddenly find yourself taking a detour to those parts of the woods a little more often.

£9.99
Brand:

Materials:
Plastic
The You2Toys Lipstick Vibrator arrived securely packaged in a small red box covered with plastic, it was nicely displayed and looks like one of those toy lipsticks that you used to get with make up sets (back in the good old days).
