Review of JETT from Hot Octopuss

Review of JETT from Hot Octopuss

by Shamus MacDuff 

“Gentlemen, start your engines!” begins the famous Indianapolis 500 automobile race. With the JETT, the wonderful new sex toy for penises from Hot Octopuss, you can start your own engine, and really rev it up.

JETT’s dual engines are vibrating silver bullets powered by four AA batteries. One “engine” contains a motor that produces treble vibrations, and the other yields deeper, more rumbly bass vibrations. What makes this innovation exciting is that you control the intensity of each motor. You can play with and set the levels of treble and bass intensity against five built-in vibration patterns to provide a wonderfully wide range of stimulation.

JETT has an expandable, circular silicone sleeve positioned directly above the dual jet engines into which you place your penis — flaccid or erect. The sleeve surrounds the frenulum on one side and the ridge atop the penile head on the other. When JETT revs up, the sensations are multiple and magnificent. The real fun with this toy comes (pun intended) in locating precisely the right treble and bass frequencies, paired with one of the five vibration patterns, that launches you into the JETT stream.

When I used JETT for solo sex, I loved the way I could stretch out the glorious sensations by switching intensities and vibration patterns. I tried it starting with a flaccid penis (flaccid didn’t last long!), and next time with a semi-erect member. JETT’s “dual exhausts” quickly brought me to orgasm in both cases.

I thought JETT was solely for masturbation until my female partner asked to observe it in action. To my immense pleasure, she discovered that fellatio on the protruding tip of my penis sent me into an ecstatic state and rapid ejaculation. So there is a place for JETT in partner sex as well as solo.

Twice when I tried to change from one vibration pattern to another, JETT simply stopped on me, and I had to restart it. Also, be aware that a battery-powered device is not waterproof. But these are minor inconveniences compared to the enormous positives that surround this delightful and fun new sex toy for penises. It is also priced affordably at just $69.

Learn more about the JETT here. Thank you, Hot Octopuss, for providing me with the JETT in return for an honest review.

Manta for Penises from Fun Factory


It’s always a joy when Fun Factory comes out with a new vibrator, and this time, it’s the Manta vibrating stroker for penises. I invited Shamus MacDuff to experiment with the Manta, and he sent this report:

MANTA from Fun Factory

 Reviewed by

Shamus MacDuff 

 The latest addition to Fun Factory’s delightful menagerie is a new sex toy for penises called Manta. Manta joins other Fun Factory “animals” such as Patchy Paul (a caterpillar) and Volta (a squid) in their growing sex toy “zoo.”

Manta is so named because the “grippers”  of the vibrating stroker resemble the “horns” of a Manta Ray. These grippers (aka flexible wings) have six intensity levels and six different rhythms to create a range of exciting stimulation. Manta can be used successfully in solo sex or in partnered fun, and either way it’s a winner.

Solo, I especially enjoy moving it slowly up and down my penile shaft with lube before eventually concentrating its vibrations on the frenulum and the ridge at the back of the penile head. Kazoom! This activity reminds me of watching real life manta rays rubbing up against coral heads back in my scuba diving days, an action to which they returned over and over because it obviously felt good.

My female sex partner used Manta to great advantage on my shaft, bringing me to throes of ecstasy as she combined Manta stroking with her own hand and mouth, backing off, and then bringing me up again. Joyous fun, leaving my entire body tingling.

Given that this wonderful “boy toy” works well solo or partnered, it will make an especially apt Valentine’s gift as that day for lovers draws near. Manta provides a ray of joy (pun intended) for penis pleasure. It’s wonderful to find another sex toy focused on the penis to accompany the many that are designed for the clitoris, vulva, vagina, and anus.

Note from Shamus’s sex partner: I really enjoy giving my partner vibrator-assisted pleasure (as he does with me). Neither arthritis nor position fatigue stops the action when a toy like the Manta intensifies the sensation!

Best of 2018 Sex Toy Round-Up

So what if gift-giving celebrations have ended. It’s always a holiday when you bring new sex toys into the world of your sexual pleasure, partnered or solo. Here are my favorites of 2018, with links to the reviews so you can learn more. Happy New Year, and may you enjoy many vibrations in 2019.

Fun Factory Sex Toys: The fabulous folks at Fun Factory sent me a box of toys, and I review them all here. My three favorites: Volta, one of the most versatile and pleasurable external vibrators ever; Patchy Paul, a slim penetrative vibrator; and Cobra Libre II, a vibrator that my penis-owning reviewer loved. Notice the 10% discount code at the bottom of the review!

* We-Vibe Touch. The We-Vibe Touch has become my favorite travel vibrator. It’s tiny, weighs almost nothing, yet it’s powerful and versatile, and the design is so smart. See why I love to pack it in my carry-on suitcase.

* Le Wand Petite. Sleek and ergonomic, this lightweight wand delivers surprisingly powerful vibrations while weighing less than 8 ounces. Not the strength of a Magic Wand, but if you don’t need that intensity, it’s terrific.

* Pocket Pulse. A smaller, modified version of the Pulse “guybrator” from Hot Octopuss that my 74-year-old penis-owning reviewer likes even better than the bigger, more expensive models. We love the Pulse because an erection is not required for use or receiving full pleasure.

* Atom Plus. This vibrating cock ring from Hot Octopuss surrounds penis and scrotum and helps keep erections strong while also stimulating the perineum, that nerve-dense area between the genitals and the anus. My reviewer describes his happy experience.

* We-Vibe Discover Gift Box. The gift that keeps on giving has 10 individually boxed items from vibrators to blindfolds. Follow me as I open each box and describe its contents.

The original reviews I’ve linked to in this round-up also include links to order from retailers that I endorse who support my mission to educate about senior sex. These are retailers who care about our sexual health as well as our sexual pleasure, and they stand for our right to remain sexual beings lifelong. Please support them, because they support us.

You don’t have to stick to the newest 2018 sex toys for your trips to paradise. Do check out older sex toy reviews on this blog. (Keep scrolling down, then click “older posts” when you reach the bottom — there are 135 reviews at the time of this writing!)

We-Vibe Discover Gift Box

The We-Vibe Discover Gift Box is a holiday gift, and much more. It’s easily months of sexy giving and receiving. This curated gift box contains these 10 items for your sexual pleasure:

  1. We-Vibe Lube made by pjur: Water-based, safe for use with silicone pleasure toys.
  2. Tickler: A “feather duster” for your tickly bits or all over your body.
  3. Tango by We-Vibe: External mini-vibe, with 8 levels and modes of stimulation. Use the flat side, the tip, or the edges, and take it in the shower or tub if you wish — it’s waterproof and rechargeable. It’s made of hard plastic and transmits the vibrations very well.
  4. Sexy Dice: Sexy instructions and the body parts to use them on. Roll the dice and play.
  5. We-Vibe Couple’s Vibrator: AAA battery-powered, budget-friendly version of We-Vibe’s signature silicone couple’s vibrator. Designed for one “arm”  worn in the vagina and the other over the clitoris during partner intercourse, it’s also dandy for unpartnered self-pleasure if the fit feels right. This version isn’t as strong as the rechargeable models. (Hint: If you have trouble removing the paper from the battery compartment, as I did, use tweezers.) 
  6. Kegel Ball: You don’t have to go to the gym to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. Insert the silicone ball in the vagina and slow squeeze – slow release for pelvic floor tone and, potentially, stronger orgasms. Silicone.
  7. Massage Candle: Sweet vanilla-scented candle, which releases massage oil. Of course you’ll extinguish the fire and test the heat before you pour it over your partner, right?
  8. Womanizer Starlet: Small, travel-sized, rechargeable version of the Womanizer, which uses a delightful “pressurized air pulses” technology. Use it on the clitoris and/or any-gendered nipples. (See my reviews of my favorite Womanizers here and my half-hearted review of the Starlet here. Although it’s not my favorite Womanizer, it will help you know whether you like the feeling enough to invest in a stronger model.) 
  9. Dusk by We-Vibe: Silicone anal plug, marketed as a “beginner’s butt plug” because it’s smaller than most and tapered for easy insertion. It doesn’t vibrate on its own, but the base is tube-
    Dusk + Tango

    shaped so you can pair it with the Tango to add vibrations. You’ll feel mild vibrations internally and stronger vibrations on the perineum, which the Tango will touch. 

  10. Silky Sash: Use it as a blindfold or a restraint, or come up with your own idea!
Each item is individually wrapped within its own gift box and comes with a card describing the item and how to use it. You might choose to play with these individually, or try them in combination. With such a large collection of possibilities, you’ll easily find some favorites. Enjoy experimenting!

The We-Vibe Discover Gift Box is listed at $350 (ouch!), but it’s selling now for $249 from We-Vibe. Still pricey, I know, but if it’s within your budget for a special treat that keeps on giving, you’ll find much to enjoy!

Thank you, We-Vibe, for gifting me the Discover Gift Box!
