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!

System JO Candy Shop H2O Bubble Gum Lube Review

7 out of 10
Price:
£9.99
Brand:
System JO
Materials:
Water
Always open to trying new lubricants, and being a particular fan of anything bubble gum flavoured or scented we were both looking forward to seeing how the System JO Candy Shop H2O Bubble Gum Lube would perform.

Sway Vibes No 2 Silicone Rabbit Vibrator Review | Pleasure Panel

7 out of 10
Price:
£90.00
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

System JO Candy Shop H2O Cotton Candy Lube Review

10 out of 10
Price:
£9.99
Brand:
System JO
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.

Lovehoney Classic Mains Powered Wand Review | Pleasure Panel

8 out of 10
Price:
£49.99
Brand:
Lovehoney
Materials:
Plastic
The Lovehoney Classic Mains Powered Wand (from Lovehoney UK or Lovehoney USA) has become a favourite of mine. The toy itself has a large round head which is smooth at the top with ridges around the circumference, supported by a sightly bendy purple neck. It is intended for external use only.
FPPR Vagina Vacuum Cup Masturbator Review

FPPR Vagina Vacuum Cup Masturbator Review | Pleasure Panel

4 out of 10
Price:
£16.00
Brand:
FPPR
Materials:
TPE
I must confess to not being hugely familiar with the brand FPPR (which I assume is a funky way of writing 'fapper', an internet term for someone who masturbates).  On first looks, the FPPR Vagina Vacuum Cup Masturbator from Loving Sex looks a very sleek and modern penis pleasuring device; the major positive I can see from its write up is that it is super discreet.

Price:
£90.00

We had seen various rechargeable wands of varying shapes, and finally decided to give one a go when the Sway Vibes No 1 Silicone Magic Wand Vibrator appeared on Cara Sutra's Pleasure Panel. Especially as it was purple, and she loves purple.

Materials:

The PDX Elite Realistic Anal Vibrating Masturbator is a tube based toy along the lines of a Fleshlight. It arrived with a sealed covering to show that it had not been used previously. The anal masturbator did not come with a separate instruction leaflet, instructions were on the outer covering which comes off as it is opened.

Lovehoney Oh! Chocolate Body Paint Review | Pleasure Panel

3 out of 10
Few of us have ever needed an excuse to lick our partner from head to toe, but no one ever turned down an offer of chocolate either. So I was helpless to resist reviewing the Lovehoney Oh! Chocolate Body Paint, available now from lovehoney.co.uk, priced £6.99 for a 120g tube.

Bliss Rechargeable Wand Vibrator Review | Pleasure Panel

10 out of 10
Price:
£55.00
Brand:
Bliss
Materials:
Plastic, Silicone
When the Bliss Rechargeable Wand Vibrator box arrived I was pleasantly surprised at the size of it. Its the size of my Hitachi old wand which is wired. The boxed item was not very heavy which means I'd be able to hold it longer during use if need be.
System JO Candy Shop H2O Butterscotch Lube Review

...when Cara offered up some tasty flavoured lubes from System JO, I couldn't resist offering my services. I mean, who wouldn't want to try a butterscotch flavoured lube. Just the thought of it had me salivating and thinking of fun ways to put it to the test.

8 out of 10
Price:
£90.00
Materials:
Silicone
The May Pleasure Panel round threw up quite a selection from Cara and I was drawn to the range of vibrators on offer from a company called Sway.  I have to admit to having never have heard of them, so I thought here was a great opportunity to give them a go and see what the offered.  Luckily, Cara selected me for the Sway Vibes No 3 Silicone Lay-On Vibrator and I eagerly awaited its arrival. 
System JO Candy Shop H2O Cotton Candy Lube Review

System JO Candy Shop H2O Cotton Candy Lube Review

10 out of 10
Price:
£9.99
Brand:
System JO
Materials:
Water
Having thought about it, I thought that the System JO Candy Shop H2O Cotton Candy Lube sounded like an interesting idea.  Would this lube slide me back to memories of fairgrounds and fun as a youngster, or would it prove to be too much of a tacky idea and leave me wanting a more conventional lubricant?

Colt Camouflage Thigh Cuff Sex Sling Review | Pleasure Panel

9 out of 10

For April, Cara Sutra's Pleasure Panel provided Mrs. Sexy and I an opportunity to review the Lovehoney Satisfy Me G-Spot Silicone Dildo.  Lovehoney is a UK based sex toy and lingerie company, and I have reviewed some of their products in the past.  Being a fan of a popular stainless-steel g-spot wand, I was excited to have us play with a softer silicone version.

Loving Joy Spectrum Ribbed Glass Dildo Review | Pleasure Panel

10 out of 10
Price:
£29.95
Materials:
Glass
Over the years I have amassed a rather extensive adult toy collection, ranging from starter items such as bullet vibes through to thigh cuffs and ball gags. One thing I have few of, however, is glass toys. I was lucky enough to be selected to review the Loving Joy Spectrum Ribbed Glass Dildo from Loving Joy and I was absolutely thrilled.
