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 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

Colt Camouflage Thigh Cuff Sex Sling Review | Pleasure Panel

9 out of 10
I was delighted when Cara selected me to review the Colt Camouflage Thigh Cuff Sex Sling from Bondara. This is the first Colt product that I have reviewed, but I have had my eyes on them for a while.

£90.00

I love Fun Factory toys, so I was delighted to see the Fun Factory Black Line Volta Vibrator up for review for the Pleasure Panel's March round. Thank you to Cara for selecting me and Fun Factory  for supplying the toy. 
Rocks Off Truly Yours Crimson Kiss RO-90 Vibrator Review

Rocks Off Truly Yours Crimson Kiss RO-90 Vibrator Review

6 out of 10
Price:
£15.99
Brand:
Rocks Off
Materials:
Plastic
The Rocks Off Truly Yours Crimson Kiss RO-90 Vibrator comes in two colors; scarlet velvet and crimson kiss. We received the crimson kiss and it is beautiful. A vibrant metallic red really pops off of the toy. The vibe itself is very smooth and comes to a pointy tip. I have to assume the tip will give you that pinpoint accuracy that we all strive for with a clitoral vibrator.

Price:
£19.99
Brand:
Lovehoney
Materials:
Silicone
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

Loving Joy Spectrum Ribbed Glass Dildo Review

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.

Monogamy: A Hot Affair Game Review | Pleasure Panel

10 out of 10
Price:
£24.99
I really enjoyed looking through the offerings from Cara for the April Pleasure Panel round, and despite there being a number of different items that I thought that I would like to have a go with, it really was the Monogamy: A Hot Affair Game from Lovehoney that I was hoping to be chosen for. 
Loving Joy Spectrum Ribbed G-Spot Glass Dildo Review

Loving Joy Spectrum Ribbed G-Spot Glass Dildo Review

6 out of 10
Price:
£24.95
Materials:
Glass
I love how unyielding glass dildos are, they don’t mould and bend to fit my anatomy, the firmness can be brutal. Firm G-Spot stimulation is one of the almost guaranteed ways to make me orgasm and glass is one of my favourite sex toy materials – how could I resist when Cara had not one but three stunning glass dildos available for sex toy testers to review?

Loving Joy Real Feel Realistic Vagina and Ass Penis Masturbator Review

5 out of 10
Price:
£19.95
Materials:
TPR
While the majority of my sex toys are couple focused or vagina focused, I have used a stroker or two in my time, so I have some experience with this type of toy. I can therefore share with you what my experience of the Loving Joy Real Feel Realistic Vagina and Ass Penis Masturbator from Loving Joy was like.

Loving Joy Bound to Please Heart Shaped Crop with Feather Tickler Review

8 out of 10
Price:
£14.95
Materials:
Silicone
We have built a large collection of items to provide a range of different sensations, varying levels of pain, depending on our moods and how much of a punishment she deserves. There is also the matter of what shapes I wish her to be marked with. From stripes from a cane, through ovals from a wooden spoon, to a little hand shaped spanker for some more fun shapes! Because of all of this, we always keep an eye out for interesting spankers on Cara Sutra's Pleasure Panel. The Loving Joy Bound to Please Heart Shaped Crop with Feather Tickler from Loving Joy definitely tempted us!

£24.99
Shop:
Bondara
Having reviewed a number of different masturbator sleeves for Cara previously, I am always intrigued when a new offering shows up during the Pleasure Panel rounds. I was not disappointed by the April Pleasure Panel round in which I was lucky enough to be sent the Boss Heaven Realistic Vagina Masturbator from Bondara to test out.
Spurt Premium Silicone Lubricant 20ml Review

Spurt Premium Silicone Lubricant 20ml Review | Pleasure Panel

9 out of 10
Price:
£3.99
Brand:
Spurt
Materials:
Silicone
Having recently reviewed a Spurt Water Based Lubricant for Cara, I was intrigued to see a small travel size bottle of their silicone based lube being offered during the latest Pleasure Panel round. With the recent revelation to me that there is no issues with using a silicone based lube along with a silicone toy, I thought why not give it a try and see what it feels like? 
After Midnight Scream CBD Lube Review

After Midnight Scream CBD Lube Review | Pleasure Panel

8 out of 10
Price:
£32.50
Materials:
Oil
A rising trend in the sex toy industry is the use of CBD in products. For those unfamiliar with CBD, CBD or cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive component of marijuana. CBD has been on the rise to help combat the big pharmaceutical boom. It seems these days there is a pill or a cocktail of pills that will solve your every problem, but at what cost? The CBD industry seeks to break down all these barriers both financial and chemical making pleasure or pain relief more accessible.

Price:
£125.00
One of my close friends is heavily into chastity. Having recently had a discussion with him about the problems with long-term locking etc, I knew that when I saw Cara looking for reviewers for the Locked In Lust The Vice Mini Pink Chastity Device he would be interested.
Nexus Enduro Stretchy Silicone Cock Ring Review

Yes another cock ring review... this time for the Nexus Enduro Stretchy Silicone Cock Ring. I do love cock rings, they are so versatile and I am always happy to review them for Cara Sutra's Pleasure Panel.

System JO Candy Shop H2O Cotton Candy Lube Review

10 out of 10
Price:
£9.99
Brand:
System JO
Materials:
Water
Previous flavored lubricants we’d tried included Wet and Pure Romance brands, neither of which we were impressed with.  In our experience, the flavors are always pretty awesome, but the lubricant aspect of the products is pretty poor. So while we didn’t have high expectations, we were hopeful that the System JO Candy Shop H2O Cotton Candy Lube would be better.

System JO Candy Shop H2O Butterscotch Lube Review

8 out of 10
Price:
£9.99
Brand:
System JO
Materials:
Water
I have reviewed a few lubricants for Cara Sutra's Pleasure Panel and will always be happy to review more. This review is for the System JO Candy Shop H2O Butterscotch Lube. I have always been wary of flavoured lubes due to the taste not generally being great or greasy.
System JO Candy Shop H2O Bubble Gum Lube

System JO Candy Shop H2O Bubble Gum Lube Review

Brand:
System JO
Materials:

Thank you for sending me the System JO Candy Shop H2O Bubble Gum Lube to test and review. I've been looking forward to trying the System JO Candy Shop bubble gum flavour lubricant as I am guilty of sticking with the same  lubricant that I always use.

Lovense Hush App Controlled Vibrating Butt Plug Review

9 out of 10
Price:
£129.99
Brand:
Lovense
Materials:
Silicone
This silicone plug is made of material that feels smooth to the touch, is easy to clean, and is durable enough to survive at least 5 months of heavy use with no signs of wear or tear. This smart sex toy is relatively silent. My girlfriend has used the Lovense Hush App Controlled Vibrating Butt Plug on me in public and with ambient noise no one has noticed. Though the faces I make when she turns it on high certainly earn me some attention.
