Nova by We-Vibe

When an adult store gets a new toy in stock, some companies will send testers to put into display stands for customers to try out (with their hands only).

I had heard many fantastic things from fellow bloggers, and was curious as to how this dual vibrator would compare to the ones before it. Continue reading “Nova by We-Vibe”

Choosing between the original Doxy (it comes in glitter!) and the Doxy Number 3 was immensely difficult, but I eventually decided to go for the one that doesn’t already have a thousand reviews written about it.
