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!

Give Lube Silicone+ Lubricant 30ml Review | Pleasure Panel

8 out of 10
Price:
£5.95
Brand:
Give Lube
Materials:
Silicone
When this arrived in the post I instantly liked the bottle it was small enough for travel and the classy black and silver design could easily be mistaken for a make up item or perfume if were to fall from your bag.

Colt Inflatable Butt Plug – Pleasure Panel Review

7 out of 10
Price:
£20.99
Brand:
Colt
Materials:
Latex
By minnie The plug on the Colt toy is black latex while the inflation pump and connecting hose are bright red. The plug is only about 1.5" in diameter so anal novices should have little problem inserting it.

Skins Black Choc Condoms – Pleasure Panel Review

Price:
£6.99
Materials:
Latex
By Emmeline Peaches After experiencing so much pain, I had to admit defeat when it came to using Skins Black Choc Condoms vaginally. From the brief time that we did persevere, here’s some feedback my partner and I came up with.

Give Lube Mini LubeTube Silicone+ Sex Lubricant Review | Pleasure Panel

7 out of 10
Price:
£6.00
Brand:
Give Lube
Materials:
Silicone
Either way, it glides on very well and provides a good amount of moisture. I just didn't think it was any different from any other lube they've made, so I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it unless I was specifically after a Silicone lubricant.

Cheeky Wash & Expandable Wipes Review | Pleasure Panel

10 out of 10
Price:
£4.99
Brand:
Give Lube
Materials:
Water
As the tablet comes into contact with Cheeky Wash it begins to expand and unravel into a generously sized, durable, soapy cloth. The material is 100% natural rayon and feels like a thin linen bandage which becomes fluffier during use, like fleece. It feels very soft and gentle on the skin and doesn't leave any lint behind.

Give Lube Raspberry Oral Sex Gel Review | Pleasure Panel

7 out of 10
Price:
£9.95
Brand:
Give Lube
Materials:
Water
Squeezing the lube out I was initially surprised by the fact that it is coloured- a transparent orangey shade which made me slightly apprehensive about using it on white sheets. Considering it is marketed as a gel the runny consistency of this was a bit of a shock, if you are expecting this to be like the sticky flavoured offerings from some companies you will be pleasantly surprised as I was. It does run relatively quickly so be prepared!

The Accidental Call Girl by Portia Da Costa – Pleasure Panel Review

6 out of 10
Price:
£3.99
Publisher:
Black Lace
Materials:
Paper
By Kinky Cornish The book starts with the leading female (Lizzie) and leading male (John) meeting in a hotel bar where he mistakenly thinks she is a high end call girl, she decides to go along with it for fun as he is obviously stunningly gorgeous and so the story begins. It's a bit similar to pretty woman in that he buys up all her free time whilst he is there on business and when together their feelings for each other grow. Lizzie is worrying during this how to tell him she is not actually 'Bettie the call girl' which she discuses with the obligatory gay housemate.

Nexus REVO 2 Prostate Massager Second Edition – Pleasure Panel Review

Nexus

By minnie Having given it a precautionary wash and applied lube, it slid in easily, though novices may find it a bit chunky at first. As with the Excel and G-Rider, my cock began leaking even before trying the vibe and massage functions. I slowly scrolled through the various settings which are slow massage with or without 2 vibe settings and fast massage again with or without 2 vibe settings.

Review: Kink Industries Intense Impact Cane from Uber Kinky

Spanking and caning are amongst my favourite punishment sessions to enjoy with submissives. At least, they tell me they enjoyed it, once they stop crying. Easy to use and light enough to wield for everyone.

By Miss Emma MM Have you been raped? I have not, I've been very lucky. However if you have or are in any way triggered by scenes of rape you most definitely need to skip this book. There is even gynecological rape, which is a fear of many women, that people think is unfounded. Here, you go, it's in a book.

Nexus G Rider Prostate Massager – Pleasure Panel Review

7 out of 10
Price:
£54.99
Brand:
Nexus
Materials:
Silicone
By minnie The T shaped horns are flatter and are ridged to enhance the sensations. Thoughtfully it is supplied with a single AAA battery, which is fitted through a removable cap into the main shaft. There is also a small rubberised button next to the cap which is used to scroll through the various vibration sequences as well as to turn the vibe off. It's a nice thick size, chunky and solid. It's about 4" long and 1.5" diameter at its widest part.

By Angechaotiques Let me start with a couple of details about this book, Best Bondage Erotica 2013 by Rachel Kramer Bussel. Firstly, this is not a standalone novel, it is a collection of twenty two short stories by various authors, brought together by Rachel Kramer Bussel. Rachel has edited over forty anthologies so she is rather experienced in choosing what would be regarded as the “best”; hence the title of the book.
