My Bondage Boutique Slim Riding Crop

What’s to review about a riding crop you may ask?

Well actually . . . despite it not having many moving or detailed parts to describe . . . this has become one of my most favourite, and most used, toys over the past few weeks. So much so, that I thought I just had to share my excitement and enthusiasm with you here.

And what has made it even more exciting is that it arrived totally by surprise as a gift from one of my followers via my “Wishlist page”.

I have owned one cane before (from a-n-other toy supplier) but it had snapped after just a few sessions, and quite mild usage really. So I’d just added the Bondage Boutique Crop from Lovehoney to my wishlist more out of mild curiosity and “when I have the time”, rather than “a must have” item.

So I was intrigued when a long, brown corrugated-cardboard box arrived at the office . . . and then absolutely delighted, and so flattered . . . when I opened it up and unravelled all the white tissue wrapping and packing, to discover a long black riding crop, in it’s sealed clear plastic bag, staring up at me from inside the box.

I just couldn’t wait to get it home and try it out. And, of course, my lovely and ever-willing Hubby, was only too pleased to submit!

Modesty's Bondage Boutique Riding CropThe crop is 27 inches long from tip to tip, including it’s strong wooden handle (5½ inches long and 3/4 of-an-inch in diameter) with a lovely-to-feel 4½ inch long and 1½ inch wide leather slapper at the “business end”. That means 17 inches of a delightfully flexible, but surprisingly strong, shaft.

The crop is just wonderful to hold as the grooved handle seems to fit just naturally (lol!!!) in the palm of my hand, giving me immediate tingles of command and being in control. There is a thin leather strap attached to the handle, where it joins the shaft, which you can slide over your wrist if you wish, although I haven’t felt the need for that because, as I say, the handle just feels as though it “belongs” in my hand. (But I have actually found the strap very useful for hanging the crop up in my wardrobe after I’ve had my fun).

Modesty Ablaze holding the Bondage Boutique Riding CropIf just holding the crop makes me tingle, you can imagine how excited I feel as I begin to administer those first few strokes (gentle to begin with of course!!!). The “swishing” sound it makes as it swings through the air is wonderful . . . and then hearing, and watching, that smacking sound as the slapper makes it’s impact on my submissives bottom is simply thrilling. I just love it . . . and watching it swat from cheek to cheek with the shaft springing and bending in time to the sounds gives me an amazing feeling. It is command, and power I suppose . . . but fun as well, as I know (from his whimpers and then rising gasps) that my submissive is also loving every stroke.

Modesty Bondage Boutique Slapper

The flexibility and strength of the shaft can, so I’m told (lol!!!), create quite an intense stinging . . . so I always pause after every dozen or so strokes to smooth my partners bum cheeks with the palms of my hand.

In the two weeks or so since it arrived, I’ve had four or five evenings of fun which have begun with me pulling the Bondage Boutique Riding Crop from my wardrobe and ordering my submissive to “assume the position . . . NOW!!!”

The Modesty Rider:
I realise, of course, that there are already thousands of long-established Sex Toy Reviewers and Review sites . . . most of whom will be far more adapt at explaining all the technical details and specifications of things. But for me sexy clothes and lingerie . . . and sexy toys . . . are all about adding a little fun and excitement to things. So that is how I tend to approach my reviews and videos!!! Just to explain “how it was for me” in a fun, and light-hearted, way without taking things too seriously! Chances are that if something makes me giggle and tingle and feel good, it will score higher on my Modesty Rating.

The Lelo Ora . . . oral sex simulator

I was so excited when I was asked if I would like to review the Lelo Ora . . . as amongst the (quite extensive LOL!!!) collection of vibrators in my toy drawer, I’ve never had one designed to simulate oral sex.

And my excitement and anticipation rose even more as I unpacked the parcel and ran my fingers over that lovely Lelo silicone for the first time.

Lelo Ora Modesty AblazeThe packaging is just exquisite! The glossy outer sleeve (complete with short descriptive informative text in six languages on the side) opens at the top to allow one to slide out the luxurious inner box. The dark black, heavy matt cardboard lid lifts off almost like a jewellery box to reveal the Ora itself nestled in it’s black foam base. A neat fold-over thinner (but matching colour and feel) black card, with the Lelo logo printed stylishly in black foil, masks the white charging unit and cable neatly contained in it’s own pocket.

Lelo Ora Modesty AblazeThis Lelo toy is available in Black, Midnight Blue and Deep Rose. Mine was the Midnight Blue and lifting the intriguingly, almost sculptured, shape of the toy from the box I was almost immediately swooning at the feel and contour of it’s shape. That wonderful silicone moulding of the outer ring with a silver metallic-type casting for the inner grip (with the Lelo logo on either side) just oozes class and style. Take a look at my pictures above, and below, and you will see just what I mean . . . and it does feel just as good as it looks.

The almost circular shape is interrupted and flattened for a few centimetres . . . 4cm actually . . . not to act as a base to stand the Ora up, (although it does serve that purpose as well as I’m looking at it now sitting on my bedside table), but rather as a more flexible membrane housing the “tongue” of the toy itself.

Further around the outer “wheel” is the small, discreet, jack-hole for charging (but this toy is 100% waterproof so you don’t need to worry about trying to avoid the hole when cleaning . . . or using excess lube!!!).

And further around again, at what I suppose would be the “top” of the Ora if you imagine it “resting” on it’s base, are the three operational buttons inconspicuously and, stylishly of course, moulded into the silicone and marked by an almost-entwined, lovers knot design, type of groove.

Modesty Ablaze and her Lelo OraAs I connected and plugged-in the charger I almost swooned again as those lovers-knot grooves began to blink with a pretty neon-blue light. But I resigned myself to the practical necessity of noting from the product information that it would require 2 to 3 hours for a first full-charging . . . but that would then allow for a full hour of “user time” . . . and I surely wouldn’t need a “full hour” would I ???

Now . . . I love almost anything sexually and I’m still finding new things that are exciting and enjoyable and satisfying. And I have certainly ALWAYS loved oral sex. And yes, I can climax just from being lovingly licked and kissed around those lips . . . but !!!

But, actually, the most erogenous of all my erogenous zones is not anywhere on my body, but inside my . . . head!

You see, I just have to be in the right frame of mind, the right environment, the right mood to be able to really enjoy, really let myself go, and really, really indulge ALL of me in that special moment in time . . .

And something I have discovered since trying to write about, or “review” my feelings about a certain toy, is that it can be a bit like baking a cake for the first time. (Yes really!!!) Just following that recipe for the first time, preparing all the right ingredients, reading and following all the instructions. By the time the cake is baked it just doesn’t seem to taste as I’d hoped, or expected, it too.

And so it proved with my Ora !!!

I lay back, confident in how lovely the Ora felt to hold with my fingers curled perfectly through the grip-hole, and began experimenting with the plus button (for increasing the vibrations) and the minus button (for, obviously, slowing down the intensity). I pushed, and held that middle button (for “3 seconds” – so I counted 1-2-3,1-2-3) for the 30% increase in the intensity of the vibrations that I’d read about in the information sheet. I paused to apply more lubricant (water-based only please!) and turned it off and on again to slowly push (but not hold) the middle button to scroll through the quoted “10 different simulation modes”. I lifted it away intermittently to check what pattern, or rhythm, the nodule, or “tongue”, beneath that thin membrane was actually doing . . . what direction, or rotation, it was performing. (It has a complete circular stroking motion or a back-and-forth, sort of car-windscreen-wiper type motion).

Unfortunately though, whatever the setting I was choosing, it just wasn’t happening for me. The sound of the vibrations (and it is actually quite quiet compared to most of my other vibrators) began to distract me. I couldn’t concentrate on the matter in hand (so to speak!). I wanted to slide my fingers inside, feel something pushing, probing, stroking. After 15 minutes of frustration and worry, I reached across the bed for Hubby saying “I think I need something else”.

But . . . and this is the moral of not ONLY this story/situation . . . but probably for me, the moral of all situations . . . the next morning!!! . . .

. . . I was awakened, far too early for a Sunday morning, by Hubby’s alarm. He was getting up to watch “the rugby” from the other side of the world. I cursed at him “at least bring me up a cup of tea at half-time!!!” . . .

And, as I turned over . . . cursing still . . . my tired eyes spied that beautifully shaped Ora staring back at me from my bedside table.

I reached over and swooned again as I ran my fingers over that lovely silky silicone. I picked it up and slid my fingers through the grip. It felt smooth, almost welcoming and enticing, in my hand. I pushed the “plus” button. The gentle vibrations that had seemed to upset my concentration the night before, suddenly seemed to empower me. I wanted to “feel” that tongue on me, feel the sound of the vibrations “touching and licking” at me.

I slid the Ora down over my tummy . . .

. . . and suddenly last night didn’t exist, hadn’t happened!!!

Modesty Ablaze with the Lelo OraAnd did the thought that this wasn’t Hubby’s tongue (or anyone else’s tongue for that matter!) swirling around and around over my clit enter my head??? YES it did enter my head, it WAS in my mind. In fact, the very fact that I KNEW this was the Ora flicking itself over me was arousing me more and more . . . and it’s vibrations driving me to that wonderful, lovely, twisting, turning explosion. In only a few minutes my cake had not only been baked, but well and truly eaten and consumed!!!

So, can I say that either of my (so far) two experiences with the Ora would happen for you??? No of course I can’t. Rather like cakes , we all like different things at different times . . . and sometimes we won’t enjoy the taste of the same cake tomorrow that we loved so much last night.

But what I can tell you is that I’m sure I will be reaching for my Ora again!

The Lelo Ora has all the quality of manufacture that you would expect from a Lelo product. It is absolutely beautifully packaged, with a satin storage pouch if you don’t want to place it back into the custom-cut-out shape of that lovely box. It is 100% waterproof and comes with a 12 month Lelo warranty.

The Ora may not suit all tastes (LOL!!!) and certainly for those who only enjoy penetrative sex this toy will not do it for you. But if, like me, you do enjoy different sensations on different occasions . . . or sometimes different sensations on the same occasion . . . you may find yourself curling your fingers through the Ora from time to time.
