Ooo, what’s that?
So one day, I’m just be-bopping around on Twitter, when I notice everyone talking about this thing called a G-Spot Lollipop. I’m forever on the hunt for a g-spot toy that works well for me, and this line is hella cute (I love lollipops), so when I was offered some of their toys, I jumped on the opportunity.
Believe me…I never in a million years thought “you should get the lollipops ready to fuck” would be a sentence that would turn me on. I am so not a food + sex kinda gal. In fact, I find the idea kinda grody. But other people are totally about that shit.
I was going to link to a bunch of porn flicks where chicks stick lollipops in their vaginas and anuses, but most of the links I came up with were to the free porn sites that are currently being called out for stealing content and putting small porn studios out of business. I’ll pass on giving them traffic, please and thanks.
Plus, I feel like I shouldn’t have to say this, but you really shouldn’t stick real candy in your vagina or anus. Which is just another added benefit to this toy, really. You get to pretend you’re sticking a lollipop in your orifices without giving yourself a yeast infection.
ANYway…this here review’s about the G-spot Lollipop Travel Pop. And I’m really excited about it.
What’d it come in?
The packaging of this line is minimal and way too sweet. It’s wrapped in shrink wrap plastic, and tied off with a bow. The ribbon matches the color of the pop, and ties a card with a product description to the stick.
How’s it made?
As you can see from the images, all of the G-spot Lollipops have two acrylic balls attached to a stainless steel rod. The Travel Pop has a much smaller ball of about three-quarters of an inch that is really meant to be a handle, but I suspect you could masturbate with this end as well as the larger end. I mean, not at the same time, but, you know, separately.
There are currently two other types of lollipops in this line. Here’s how they measure up:
|Double Pop Small||Small – 1.5″
Large – 1.75″
|Double Pop Medium||Small – 1.75
Large – 2.0″
|J Pop Small||Small – 1.5″
Large – 1.75″
|Ball to Ball – 20″
Bottom Ball to Bottom of Hook – 7.25″
Top Ball to Bottom of Hook – 10.5″
|J Pop Medium||Small – 1.75
Large – 2.0″
|Ball to Ball – 20.75″
Top Ball to Bottom of Hook – 10.5″
Bottom Ball to Bottom of Hook – 7.25″
Sizes may vary by 1/4″ or less, as these toys are measured and assembled by hand.
What’s it for?
The best use for this toy is right in the name. It’s to aid you in finding your g-spot and having mind-blowing g-spot orgasms.
You can use it by yourself, or with a partner, but so far, M’s left this toy to me. This is because it’s a pretty precise toy, and you really need to figure it out for yourself before handing it over to a partner, so you can tell them what works for you. Otherwise, there might be all sorts of uncomfortable cervix bumping, and vaginal wall poking that may or may not ruin the experience for you depending on what you like.
I’m still learning about how this toy works for me, so he’s mostly just watching and learning for the moment. I’ll definitely do a follow up on partner play with this line when we’ve moved on to that.
How is it?
comes in an array of colors
hits my g-spot every time
helped me to pinpoint my g-spot
small enough to tuck away in a purse or
carry on bag
can cause cramping for people with issues
like arthritis, or carpal tunnel
Of course, I was skeptical. I was skeptical about everything, from the design to the idea that it wouldn’t ultimately be another g-spot toy that just bangs on my pubic bone.
The manufacturer told me I would do best to start with the smallest pop and work my way up to the largest, and it says that on their site (I have it on good authority that they’re in the middle of redesign, so don’t judge what’s there too harshly). I wanted to listen, but M was not having any of it, because he was skeptical, too, and he’s the boss.
“You stick that giant black dildo inside and cum pretty good. You’ll be fine with the bigger balls.”
“That’s different! It’s squishy! Acrylic is not squishy. Plus, they’re cock-shaped. Sort of. These are round. They feel different.”
“I don’t want to hear it. I could change my mind? But I thought you wanted to cum.”
He’s such a bastard.
So I started with the medium. And regretted it. And M could see the regret and disappointment all over my face.
“Want to switch to something else?” he asked, sympathy all over his face.
Not one to not finish what I started when it comes to masturbation, I soldiered on. But it was uncomfortable. And sometimes it pinched. Eventually, I came, but I wasn’t really happy about it.
Knowing how much I hate writing negative reviews, M asked, “Wow, what’re you gonna do?”
“Needs more research!” I shouted, and the next time he offered me a masturbation session, I grabbed the smallest one and tried again. This time, I watched the video on the site by Dr. Melissa Jones, PhD., again, and followed some of her suggestions, and…it was awesome!
After just that first ouchie session with the Travel Pop, I gained a profound understanding of why the Pure Wand causes me more pain than pleasure. First of all, I was going about it all wrong, but even if I wasn’t, it still wouldn’t work out for me.
Here’s a secret about me. While I’ve known since I learned about the g-spot that I have one, I’ve never really been able to pinpoint it. I know that with most toys, thrusting feels good, and there’s a spot that really makes fucking and masturbating feel better than just rubbing my clit, or fucking/masturbating when I miss that spot, and I’ve noticed that I cum differently depending on whether or not I’m able to hit that spot, but being able to point at that spot has been a bitch and a half. (Holy run-on sentence, Batman!) Like, I’d resigned myself to not ever knowing exactly where it is, and having mediocre orgasms when M or I don’t hit it by mistake.
This is where the Travel Pop comes in.
I knew, from all the discussions I’ve had with the manufacturer, that this toy was going to have a learning curve.
For one, I’m a thruster, because the only way to guarantee I’ll bump my g-spot is to thrust. The G-spot Lollipop’s not really meant for thrusting. You can use it that way; especially if you’re an old pro at masturbating with g-spot toys, and find this is the best way to stimulate your own. But the G-spot Lollipop is meant for more of a spinning or swiping motion. For me, the best way to stimulate my g-spot with this toy has proven to be by pulling on it, occasionally gently pushing it inside about an inch (if that), and then pulling on it again.
Why? Well, because my g-spot is in the exact same spot as my pubococcygeus muscle, just barely an inch inside my vagina. And I did not know that until I tried this toy.
This also explains why the Pure Wand is painful for me. Attempting to use the Pure Wand the way I use the Travel Pop (I retested, and tried different methods for comparison, including the pulling method that I described) hooks the wand behind my pubic bone, which results in uncomfortable banging, and the pinching I’d experienced with the first ball I tried. I still maintain that I could be doing it wrong, but I’ve only ever had one pleasant experience with the Pure Wand, and it was in my ass.
In any case, once I got the hang of the Travel Pop, I was able to pay attention to what feels best, and, like it says on their site, the orgasms have been more intense each time. Whether this is due specifically to the toy, or my insistence on mastering it, I don’t know. What I do know is there are some toys out there that I have never been able to master. They’ve always been uncomfortable. They’ve certainly never made me cum harder each time I used them. So the G-spot Lollipop is definitely for me.
Anything else I should know?
Use water based or silicone lube with this toy. I prefer using a hybrid called SpunkLube Pink. It’s become one of my favorite lubes ever.
Try not to drop these toys. I doubt you’ll have a breakage problem, but sometimes acrylic gets scuffed or scraped if you drop it…especially if it lands on a rough surface. I haven’t had this issue so far, but there are no rough surfaces in my house.
You can use these toys for temperature play, but do not boil or freeze them, as this could result in damage to the toy, and to your body. If you want to change the temperature of the toy before using it, prepare a bowl of warm or cold water, and let the toy sit in the water until it reaches the desired temperature.
Depending on the severity of your issue, and how it affects you, this toy may cause cramping of the hands.
Sometimes, I get hand cramps when I write. I mean, everyone eventually gets hand cramps if they write too much, but sometimes I get hand cramps after writing for just a few minutes.
I don’t go to the doctor…like ever, so I have no idea what, exactly, is the issue. I suspect 12 years of blogging and journaling and freelance writing is taking its toll on all the various joints and tendons and muscles and such in my hands, but I haven’t made any effort to find out what price it’s exacting. A time or two, when I used the Travel Pop, I found myself having to find just the right position to avoid my hands locking up or cramping, but this is no different than if I were writing, or brushing my teeth, or whatever, so I figure in my situation it just depends on how much I want to do something. I like the G-spot Lollipop a lot, so I deal with occasional cramping just like any other life situation.
Where’d ya get it?
The folks at G-spot Lollipop sent me the Travel Pop free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
