FAQ: 7th Heaven Platinum Beaded Rabbit Pearl


This video blog post will answer some frequently asked questions about our 7th Heaven Platinum Beaded Rabbit Pearl including how to insert the batteries and operate it as well as measurement information and more.

 

Living in the Material World

There is so much more to a masturbator than a great pair of tits and a tight box. The material it’s made of is just as important as what it feels like when you hop on to get off. Manufacturers have gone to great lengths to replicate the feel of the real thing — so much so that if you close your eyes, it’s hard to tell them apart. And that’s what keeps you coming back for more, again and again. In order to keep them as ready and willing as the first time, they deserve a certain amount of care.

We have posted before about the different materials used in masturbators and how to care for them, but we’ve decided to tie all that information up into a concise article for you below.

TPR (Thermo-Plastic-Rubber)*

Pipedream’s FantaFlesh® toys feel so great because they’re made of this. It’s the most lifelike material that mimics the look and feel of human skin. It warms to the touch during use, and is waterproof, light weight, super stretchy and soft. Masturbators like Pipedream Extreme Toyz® Fuck My Big Black Ass! ™ Mega Masturbator™, Fuck My Big Fat Titties™ Mega Masturbator™ and the Fuck Me Silly DUDE! ™ Mega Masturbator™ utilize TPR technology for that lifelike feel.
*A note about TPR: since it is composed of rubber, it will smell like rubber. The smell should fade over time, but will never fully go away. If stored it in an airtight box, the smell will not waft out until you open it.

TPE (Thermo-Plastic-Elastomer)


Pipedream’s pink and clear pocket-size masturbators feel so great because they’re made of this. It combines the elasticity of rubber with the durability of plastic — meaning, it’s nearly as soft and supple as the FantaFlesh® (TPR) but made faster & more economically so it can be offered at a lower price point. Masturbators like Pipedream Extreme Toyz® Juicy Cyber Snatch™ and Clear-Leader Snatch™ utilize TPE technology for a great get-off.

Cleaning and Maintenance


As with anything, using a little care will prolong the life of the toy. How long it actually lasts depends on how much it is used and how rough the user treats it. Keep in mind that TPR and TPE products are compatible with any lube that Pipedream manufactures, but we recommend steering clear of oil-based lubricants.

Here are some steps to take to get the party started and keep it going: BEFORE USE, you’ll want to: 1- Remove toy from package and spray with toy cleaner or soap, 2- Rub entire product vigorously & rinse with hot water, and 3- Pat dry with towel and lubricate. Voila! It’s ready to use! AFTER USE, you’ll want to: 1- Rinse away any debris with hot water and flush orifices under faucet (we’d also recommend a good Antibacterial Toy Cleaner at this stage), 2- Follow steps 1 & 2 from ‘BEFORE USE’ instructions (above), 3- Pat dry with towel & let stand for 15 minutes, and last — and perhaps most importantly, 4- Sprinkle with FantaFlesh® Revive Powder and spread a thin layer around exterior and interior before storing toy in an airtight container or zippered plastic bag. Revive powder will soak up any residual moisture, prevent material from getting sticky and maintain the lifelike quality of the masturbator.

Here is a printable PDF of the above information available in order to keep a copy handy with your toys.

Getting a Charge Out of Your Batteries


When batteries work properly, we barely even notice they’re there. But when they begin to die, all rational thinking gets pushed aside, expletives fly out of our mouths and we damn the day we bought the device that’s momentarily not working. I guess it’s safe to say we have a love/hate relationship with batteries. But before you do something drastic like chuck your vibrator against the wall, we have a better solution: know your battery. Being familiar with a battery’s output capacity can put the love back into your relationship (with your toy) — and save your sanity.

Modern standard and extended-life batteries are composed of carbon-zinc, alkaline, or lithium. Rechargeable batteries utilize nickel cadmium and nickel metal hydride as their force. Battery life expectancies vary depending on what type is used (standard, extended-life, rechargeable) and what the battery is made of; therefore, we cannot estimate a life expectancy. What is important here is voltage. Voltage is as important to a battery’s performance as getting the right toy is to good sex. In most cases, the lower the voltage, the longer the battery will last; the higher the voltage, the quicker it will burn out. The exceptions to this rule are lithium and A23 batteries; lithium has a higher output capacity (3 volts) — which is why they are a favorite for digital cameras and electronics — and A23′s “round multiple cell” construction gives them a super-charged output (12 volts).

It is important to understand that no battery will last forever. That is why we recommend always keeping spares on hand — or a charger along with spare rechargeable batteries (NEVER try to recharge standard, non-rechargeable batteries). Also, NEVER combine old batteries with new (it drains the power quickly) or standard with rechargeable (for the same reason). And NEVER combine lithium batteries with other types. There are, however, toys that require a combination of different types of batteries, so pay close attention to the manufacturer’s requirements. Additionally, ALWAYS recycle used batteries — they are harmful to the environment if disposed of in the trash.

The list below gives a breakdown of battery sizes commonly used in sex toys. This will help you make the correct choice to get your vibe on:

AA — The most common multipurpose battery used in a wide array of devices. A single cell battery. Available in alkaline (standard, non rechargeable, 1.5 volts), lithium (extended life, non-rechargeable, 3 volts) and rechargeable (nickel cadmium NiCd and nickel metal hydride NiMH, 1.25 volts). Toys as diverse as the Neon Luv Touch Vibe™, Waterproof Wabbit Vibe and the Pipedream Extreme Toyz™ Latino Lover use one, two and three AA batteries (not included), respectively.

AAA — A single cell battery. Available in alkaline (standard, non rechargeable, 1.5 volts), lithium (extended life, non-rechargeable, 3 volts) and rechargeable (nickel metal hydride NiMH, 1.25 volts). Toys such as Neon Love Touch Ribbed Slims™ use two AAA batteries (not included).

C — A single cell battery. Available in alkaline (standard, non rechargeable, 1.5 volts), lithium (extended life, non-rechargeable, 3 volts) and rechargeable (nickel metal hydride NiMH, 1.25 volts). Toys like the 9 Function Multi Wanachi require two C batteries, not included.

N — Also a single cell battery. Available in alkaline (standard, non rechargeable, 1.5 volts), lithium (extended life, non-rechargeable, 3 volts) and rechargeable (nickel metal hydride NiMH, 1.25 volts). The Remote Control Waterproof Butterfly™ requires three AA batteries and one N battery to function.

LR41, LR44, AG3 and AG13 — These types of batteries are commonly known as “button cells” for their button-like appearance. They are composed of silver oxide and alkaline, and have an output of 1.5 volts. Small and compact, they come in a wide range of sizes (pay close attention to the exact battery number when replacing). Their minuteness is perfect for toys like the Neon Luv Touch One Touch Egg™ (two LR41 batteries, not included), Neon Luv Touch Lipstick Vibe™ (three LR44 batteries, not included), and the Silicone Rabbit Pearl Deluxe™ (six LR41 and one AG3 battery, not included).

A23 — A multiple-cell alkaline battery. Sometimes encased in a cylindrical cardboard tube (like a standard battery) and sometimes stacked together and shrink-wrapped, the result is the same: 12 volts. Toys like the 10 Function Remote Control Bullet™ require a combination of batteries (six LR44 aka AG13 batteries, and one A23 battery for the remote (included).

Edging: Holding Out for a Bigger O

Guys and orgasms go together like Sundays and sports games. Both are highly anticipated, supercharged exhibitions of endurance and strength. The penis is like the star athlete — waiting to show off its skills and finesse — while the mind is like the coach, guiding and training the penis to be the best it can be. In sex, though, sometimes the star athlete scores the point too early — thus abruptly ending the game. While he still gets bragging rights for some time to come, he’s missed the amazing plays along the way, the cheerleaders cheering him on, and perhaps even the halftime show.

Who’s to blame here? No one. In sex, there are no losers. But there are better-skilled players who understand that points can be scored along the way and orgasm is like the victory party after the game.

Time Out & Stiff Delay Creams

Holding off on the orgasm — or “edging” — is a learned skill that takes practice. It takes great control and restraint to master the art of climbing up to orgasm and stopping just before one blows his load. But practice makes perfect, as the saying goes. And the payoff is tremendous — bigger, more intense orgasms for you and longer, more satisfying sex play for both you and your partner. The best way we’ve discovered to put edging into practice is to realize that foreplay is part of the sex act. Many guys tend to think that it is not. But guys… who among us doesn’t like a good, long blowjob or giving our partner a thorough muff dive? Unless you are aptly skilled at coitus interruptus (the act of pulling out) and can do so and not come, foreplay is the most satisfying option. It also takes brain power, and the brain is the biggest sex organ we have (to quote another coined phrase).

Numb Nutz

Pipedream has products that can help you confidently approach the “edging training” you are about to begin. Think of them as the right gear for the right game. Numb Nutz and Stiff Delay Cream is a desensitizing cream that is applied directly to the penis. This non-staining, non-toxic formula prevents premature ejaculation will keeping you stiff as a board, as the name implies.

For you guys that want to give your partner a good taste of what’s to come, try Time Out Delay Cream in the delicious Passion Fruit flavor. Also non-staining, non-toxic and applied directly to the penis, it keeps your bat up and ready while stopping you from prematurely swinging for the home-run hit.

FAQ: Le Reve Silicone Petite Battery Insertion

Le Reve Silicone Petite Vibrators

If you are having trouble with the batteries on our Le Reve Silicone Petite vibrator, you are not alone. This blog post will answer how to insert the batteries properly and answer some FAQs people have sent into us.

What is that round paper for when I take the battery cap off?

The round paper disc just inside the battery compartment between the disc battery and spring is to keep it from making contact during shipping or storage. This avoids the battery from wearing out before you get a chance to use it.

Which way are the batteries supposed to face?

+ Side up, where you can see the writing on the flat side of the battery when you open it.

Are all four batteries supposed to face the same direction?

Yes

The paper inside that says “do not remove” came out & I can’t get it to turn on anymore, what should I do?

Just roll the paper back up with + symbol at the top when you slide it back into the battery compartment. Then place all 4 batteries in and screw the lid on tight.

If your Le Reve Silicone Petite is still not working after following these steps, it could be defective. Email us a copy of your receipt to see if you qualify for a replacement through Pipedream’s warranty program.

FAQ: Are Anal-Numbing Creams Safe to Use In My Mouth and Throat?

The human body is a marvelous thing, able to withstand seemingly impossible feats and overcome incredible odds. Short of sounding like action heroes from a comic book, women and men truly are super. However, each and every one of us is unique and wired differently.

Some have higher pain thresholds than others — even during sex. And while having a stress test performed on one’s orifices can be impressive, it can sometimes be more painful than enjoyable. And for that reason, science has created topical numbing agents that enable we humans to engage in sex acts that stretch our boundaries, confidently, beyond their comfort zones.

Frequently, we are asked if anal-desensitizing creams — such as Comfortably Numb Anal Eaze — are safe to use for numbing the gag reflex during oral sex. Logically, this makes perfect sense. However, just because a product is safe and made for one part of your body doesn’t mean you should use it on all parts of your body. Some products are topical (for use outside of your body) and some are ingestible (to take into the body). Let’s break down Comfortably Numb products and find out which ones are right for you and your sexual needs.

Comfortably Numb Anal Eaze products contain compounds called PEG-32 and PEG-8 (Polyethylene glycol and Propylene glycol cocoates, respectively). They are commonly used in ointments, personal lubricants, cosmetics and toothpastes. While they are of low-toxicity, they are manufactured for topical use (mama always said not to swallow the toothpaste!). It is safe in small doses if ingested; however, you would not want to put a large quantity in your mouth and throat for the desired effect of numbing the gag reflex.

The active numbing agent used in all Comfortably Numb products is called Benzocaine. This is an FDA-approved topical anesthetic commonly used in over-the-counter pain ointments, throat sprays, cough drops and even certain condoms (to desensitize the penis and prevent premature ejaculation). This is safe for use both anally and orally.

We’ve established the fact that Comfortably Numb Anal Eaze is safe for taking the sting out of anal sex, but not for deep-throating. For that, we recommend the other Comfortably Numb products — available in a wide selection of styles and flavors, including: Deep Throat Spray, Oral Sex Lollipops, and Oral Sex Mints. There’s even a complete collection available, which includes all the above products — Anal Eaze too — and makes for a whole-length Comfortably Numb experience!

NOTE: As with any product containing Benzocaine: if you are pregnant or have certain stomach and gastro issues, be responsible and check with your doctor or allergist before use.
