Pleasure Panel Reviews

Pleasure Panel reviews are adult product reviews which have been written by the Cara Sutra sex blog community as well as other guests. The Pleasure Panel was an outsourced sex toy reviews project which ran between 2015 and 2019; it was an incredibly popular monthly activity.

Thanks to the Pleasure Panel 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 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 the Pleasure Panel reviews below – there are reviews for pretty much everything!

The Handy Smart WiFi Connected Penis Masturbator Review

10 out of 10
Price:
£175.00
Brand:
The Handy
Materials:
Plastic, TPR
If you can afford it, the Handy is the best masturbator you'll find. It shines when combined with a VR headset, but it's a powerful machine that any dick will love, even without the video sync features. The modular strap design means that you can easily swap out for something else if the included sleeve doesn't fit you. Or if you're smaller than average, you can tighten it up.
Dame Arc Rechargeable Silicone G-Spot Vibrator Review

Dame Arc Rechargeable Silicone G-Spot Vibrator Review

9 out of 10
Price:
£99.99
Materials:
Silicone
The G-spot, formally hailed as the subject of legend, in that it resides in the darkest caverns and was often sought, but rarely found… until a dashing young man named Regnier De Graaf began to study the inner workings of female pleasure and discovered the location of this internal treasure trove.

NMC Xtra Around 5 Inch Realistic Penis Butt Plug Review

NMC Xtra Around 5 Inch Realistic Penis Butt Plug Review

8 out of 10
Price:
£9.99
Brand:
NMC
Materials:
PVC
The NMC Xtra Around 5 Inch Realistic Penis Butt Plug is a believable shape and that has a bearing on the mental effects that inserting it might have. I am a heterosexual, submissive male who is testing this product at the behest of my Mistress and Keyholder. In my case, inserting this product infers an element of forced bi and the humiliation and related psyche that would accompany it.

Nexus Revo Extreme Remote Control Rotating Prostate Massager Review

Nexus Revo Extreme Remote Control Rotating Prostate Massager Review

8 out of 10
Price:
£149.99
Brand:
Nexus
Materials:
Silicone
The Nexus Revo Extreme Remote Control Rotating Prostate Massager is clearly a monster but the quantity in no way diminishes the quality. The excellent shaft is 100% silicone and I was particularly impressed by the base which itself had a solid girth and nodules designed to emphasise any stimulation of the perineum.
We-Vibe Nova 2 Rabbit Vibrator Review

We-Vibe Nova 2 Rabbit Vibrator Review

9 out of 10
Price:
£135.00
Brand:
We-Vibe
Materials:
Silicone
Just like its predecessor, the We-Vibe Nova 2 is an excellent vibrator. There are lots of new elements to play with and I am still finding new patterns and sensations to explore. I love the vibrant pink colour and the clitoral arms angles against the clitoris perfectly. The vibrator is whisper-quiet and easy to clean so it extremely low maintenance.

Lovehoney Ignite Vibrating Prostate Massager Review

9 out of 10
Price:
£29.99
Brand:
Lovehoney
Materials:
Silicone
The wide variety of patterns was impressive and for a beginner's toy more than adequately powerful. Some of the patterns, especially those that included significant and sudden variations had the effect of concentrating the mind on the plug.

Rocks Off Petite Sensations Bubbles Vibrating Anal Beads Review

7 out of 10
Price:
£19.99
Brand:
Rocks Off
Materials:
Silicone
This product was purchased from Lovehoney with three other "anal beginner" devices and they all arrived in the same box within 2 working days of placing the order. The Rocks Off Petite Sensations Bubbles Vibrating Anal Beads comes in two colour choices, black or purple. The purple option was the one reviewed.

Lovehoney Booty Buddy Silicone Butt Plug Review

8 out of 10
Price:
£12.99
Brand:
Lovehoney
Materials:
Silicone
The size and resulting light weight of this beginner's product effectively eliminates any noticeable teasing to either the prostate or perineum. It has to be emphasised that the product is designed for beginners however, and as such, for the intended purchaser, the mere wearing of plugs may and should create some excitement.

8 out of 10
Price:
£14.99
The Seven Creations Roll Play Medium Butt Plug (with jiggle ball and suction cup) was ordered from Lovehoney together with three other anal sex toys I thought would be suitably sized for my experience level. They all arrived in the same box within 2 working days of placing the order.
Cloud 9 Pro Sensual Air Touch 4 Clitoral Suction Rabbit Vibrator Review

Cloud 9 Pro Sensual Air Touch 4 Clitoral Suction Rabbit Vibrator Review

5 out of 10
Price:
£78.00
My first impressions of the Cloud 9 Pro Sensual Air Touch 4 Clitoral Suction Rabbit Vibrator is a classy looking vibe. It has a sleek, funky design, and its a gorgeous deep rich plum colour. The shape of the shaft is curved and gradually widens toward the tip, for me personally, the size looked perfect.

John Thomas Toys Platinum Silicone Chubby Cedrick Dildo Review (9 Inch)

10 out of 10
The John Thomas Toys Platinum Silicone Chubby Cedrick Dildo is a funny little man. His cock as a straight as anything, not too long and not too thick–yet his shaft is ribbed for added pleasure. It translates to an absolutely luscious fuck: not too punishing, but with a textured rhythmic experience all the way down his worm-like shaft.

I skipped the usual finger warm up and instead placed the tip of the Maison Du Plug Green Jewel Stainless Steel Beaded Butt Plug at his entrance, I slowly pushed the first bulb inside. He gasped at the popping sensation as the bulb slipped in.  I continued to slide the plug into place and the middle bulb joined the first...
Cloud 9 Pro Sensual Slim G-Spot Vibrator Review

Cloud 9 Pro Sensual Slim G-Spot Vibrator Review

7 out of 10
Price:
£55.00
All in all, the Cloud 9 Pro Sensual Slim G-Spot Vibrator is a lovely little G spot vibrator. It's a gorgeous colour, made with high quality materials and its very powerful. It is versatile too, as it can be used for 3 different kind of stimulation: clitoral, G-spot and internal.
Cloud 9 Pro Sensual Series Power Touch Plus 2 Review

Cloud 9 Pro Sensual Series Power Touch Plus 2 Review

8 out of 10
Price:
£80.00
To ensure the Cloud 9 Pro Sensual Series Power Touch Plus 2 was thoroughly tested I handed the wireless controller and the bullet over to my husband.  With a twinkle in my eye I dared him to do his worst.  Big mistake!  Over the course of the next few hours my husband used every setting to drag me to the brink of orgasm then whip the device away at the critical moment, effectively edging me over and over again...

Cloud 9 Health And Wellness Triple Massager Kit Review

6 out of 10
Price:
£55.00
It's a great option for those new to sex toys who'd like a taster of different sensations before they move onto more powerful toys or something designed with a single purpose for specific body parts. They may find they really enjoy the anal beads, with or without the vibration, and decide to explore that further with something larger or longer. Or perhaps really enjoy the directed, pinpoint clitoral stimulation–there are better, more powerful toys for that too.

John Thomas Toys Platinum Silicone Buffalo Dildo Review (9 Inch)

9 out of 10
You'll be feeling quite full now, as you gasp for breath and marvel at the sheer girth you've managed to fit in. But you'll keep going to satisfy his need to be fully in you. He pushes in further and you're fully impaled by this brute now, unable to move an inch of your own accord, with a belly full of cock and nowhere to escape.

BON4 Silicone Chastity Device Review

Price:
£120.00
Brand:
BON4
Shop:
BON4
Materials:
Silicone
Although the expected torment resulting from denial, which is after all the objective of chastity, does make relaxing and sleeping more challenging, the BON4 Silicone Chastity Device itself is often hardly noticeable. Erections are of course restrained and restricted, as they are intended to be, and at times like those the existence of the cage is deliberately undeniable.
