As Chris and I are wont to do in the sex writing game we are in, I was sent a few toys from a shop that wanted me to review their wares. The place, Rendschina.com, sent over a pink Hitachi Wand and what they call their “Linga: Pulse Wave Lasting Training Device” (see the pictures above).
The Hitachi is pretty much the device we all know, a ‘wand’-like long massager with the bulbous head. I’ve always considered this mostly a lady’s vibrator. It’s been my experience (only in what I have heard of course…wink wink) that a Hitachi’s powerful punch makes is as much a favorite with some women as something others like to keep their nether parts far away from.
Admittedly, when it comes to any adult toy, it’s always a matter of individual preference over likes and dislikes.
The Linga, though, is quite an unusual animal. From what I was able to determine (again only from the most cursory of research, I am careful where I place myself these days) the thing which is, as you see, not more than an 8-inches long (please don’t ask me how I measured it!), has a flap opening on its underside, is made of durable, hypoallergenic plastic, and is ribbed in the area where one…well…’puts’ oneself. The Linga’s other side is made of harder plastic, and sports on/off vibration-changing button (there are five different patterns here).
The whole thing is powered, as lots of toys are these days, by a USB cord.
I’m not sure how much ‘training’ one could manage with this. The Linga’s vibrations are quite unnerving and robust (and the device very loud). I’m not saying it’s not effective, it damn well is, but like an Hitachi, this is a sex toy that one will either take too immediately or not take to at all. One could even enjoy the vibrator without placing one’s penis into it (or so I imagine) as holding the Linga against a body part will always produce some highly rhythmic responses.
I’m not shelling for Rends.com here. I am sure they are nice people, and their stuff I see is well made. I was sent these items and felt, why not give forth on a little review for us all here at Licking Non-Vanilla, get past the usual podcast pontification I usually make you suffer through and show you what we sex writers get up to lots of the time.
Keep listening…maybe you’ll hear the thrumming of my Linga in the far distance.
As always, you can find our podcast here.
