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!

Satisfyer Vibes Magic Bunny Vibrator Review

10 out of 10
The Satisfyer Vibes Magic Bunny Vibrator is, as the name might suggest, a rabbit vibrator. It's one of only two rabbit style vibrators in the Satisfyer Vibes range.

Satisfyer Vibes Petting Hippo Vibrator Review

6 out of 10
The Satisfyer Vibes Petting Hippo Vibrator is certainly one of the cuter vibes in the collection; rather than follow the common design for g-spot focused vibes this little fella has a very smiley face!

Satisfyer Vibes Charming Smile Vibrator Review

7 out of 10
The Satisfyer Vibes Charming Smile Vibrator is one of the shorter vibes in the collection, and certainly has a stumpy look to it, but the curves of this g-spot focused vibe do look interesting.

Satisfyer Vibes Yummy Sunshine Vibrator Review

10 out of 10
The Satisfyer Vibes Yummy Sunshine Vibrator is one of the chunkier looking vibrators in the collection and has a more tradition shape than some of the others. That said, it is by no means a 'straight' vibe.

Satisfyer Vibes Power Flower Vibrator Review

6 out of 10
The Satisfyer Vibes Power Flower Vibrator is an interesting different design of vibrator that claims to be as effectively externally as internally, and with the look of the long fluttering petals that make up the top half of the body we weren’t about to argue!

Satisfyer Vibes Mr Rabbit Vibrator Review

10 out of 10
The Satisfyer Vibes Mr Rabbit Vibrator is the larger of the two rabbit style offerings in the Satisfyer Range, so does the extra size mean extra va-va-voom, or does size really not matter?

SVAKOM Siren Vibrator Review

8 out of 10
Brand:
SVAKOM
Shop:
SVAKOM
Materials:
Silicone
Maneuvering the SVAKOM Siren so that my clit was nestled between the two tongues, the ridged silicone adding an extra dimension to the vibrations and with seconds I was writhing and moaning on the bed.  I found using the very tips on my clit was too much for me regardless of the setting but nestling my clit between the tongues certainly hit the spot.
Loving Joy Realistic Vagina And Ass Masturbator Review

Loving Joy Realistic Vagina And Ass Masturbator Review | Pleasure Panel

8 out of 10
Price:
£19.99
Materials:
TPR
The majority of the sex toys I have used over the past few years have been plain ol’ strokers that all in all might look different, be different shapes and sizes, but are all textured tunnels and pretty similar.  Along comes the Loving Joy Realistic Vagina and Ass Masturbator from Loving Joy with a bit of a twist to the usual, not just one textured tunnel of love but TWO!  Spoilt for choice with a vaginal opening and what looks like a smaller, tighter anal orifice.

Loving Joy Medium Cream Butt Plug Review

Loving Joy Medium Cream Butt Plug Review | Pleasure Panel

7 out of 10
The description of this butt plug is slightly misleading I think, the Loving Joy Medium Cream Butt Plug seems to me to be anything but 'medium'! When it arrived I ripped open the packaging and gasped at the girth on display, I knew I would need to serious warming up before getting this fella inside!

Price:

Sway Vibes No 2 Silicone Rabbit Vibrator Review | Pleasure Panel

7 out of 10
Price:
£90
Materials:
Silicone
The Sway No 2 is a luxury rabbit vibrator sold by Cara’s US Sex Shop (hosted by Loving Sex); this isn’t a brand I was familiar with but with a quick browse of their website I found the Sway range includes various wands, rabbits and lay on vibrators. Interest piqued, I volunteered to review one for Cara Sutra's Pleasure Panel and was sent the Sway Vibes No 2 Silicone Rabbit Vibrator in exchange for my open and honest review.

Loving Joy Black 3 Speed Mini Bullet Vibrator Review | Pleasure Panel

8 out of 10
Price:
£6.99
Materials:
Plastic, PU
I got my hands on the Loving Joy Black 3 Speed Mini Bullet Vibrator. The packaging is very minimalistic and it comes with 3 watch style batteries. Given how many similar toys now come rechargeable, this was a bit of a disappointment, but at $5.95 USD (£6.99), I guess I can’t complain too much.

System JO Candy Shop H2O Cotton Candy Lube Review | Pleasure Panel

10 out of 10
Price:
£9.99
Brand:
System JO
Shop:
Harmony
Materials:
Water
I absolutely adore the sights, sounds and smells of the fairground -the rides not so much, I'm very much a 'eat the food, hold the bags' visitor to the fair.  Speaking of eating the food, cotton candy or candy floss is something I always grab a stick of as I walk past all of the bright and colourful sweet stalls.  When I saw the System JO Candy Shop H2O Cotton Candy Lube in the Pleasure Panel round I didn't think twice about volunteering.
