I love nothing more than a bad ass woman on a mission. And bonus if that mission is for the better pleasure of other bad ass women. I know, it sounds like what would be the first lines of my autobiography but it isn’t. And for once, I’m sharing the spotlight to a well deserved, hard working pioneer in the sexual health sector. Lora DiCarlo started her company in 2017 when she saw a need for products made by women, for women. Her first device won great acclaim and even a Robotics Innovation Award from the Consumer Technology Association. An award that they would later take back. (Facepalm)
No bother. Lora continued and worked hard to create a brand that has grown over the years to a multi-million dollar company. And now with Co-Owner and Creative Advisor, Model and Actress Cara Delevingne, she plans to continue educating women and creating state of the art adult products, that fuse technology with human touch and movement.
I got a chance to try one of their most popular products, The Drift.
As a woman with a background in Public Relations and a self professed design nerd, the first thing that got me excited, was the packaging. I know, it sounds cheesy. But it would make sense later on. The packaging was sleek, clean lines, felt amazing, easy to read and just flowed. Again, I know I sound like a nerd. But in a world where many adult toys are made and designed by men, when I can say I am impressed by just the box, you already have me sold.
The Drift is a handheld bullet vibrator with heat feature. Yes. IT HEATS UP! It retails at $95.00, features 3 vibrating patterns, 7 intensity settings and is waterproof. Psssttt, did I mention it heats up? Perfect for solo or couple use, this is device that will quickly become your new best friend.
Now, as I always like to do and as I have always done with this blog, I like to talk about honest, real world experiences. So just go with me on this, ok? THIS THING IS SO FREAKIN AWESOME. Ok, first, super easy to charge (it comes with a USB charger that takes about an hour). It also comes in a lovely discreet storage bag (though if you come over to my place, I’m always the first person to tell you to never look in my nightstand unless you want to be equal parts surprised and impressed). When I say I couldn’t wait to try this, I really couldn’t. My fiance and I both enjoyed it.
It was a great toy during foreplay and the warming sensation, which is just above the normal body temp, felt amazing when used externally. As for during sex, it provided an equal amount of pleasure for both myself and fiance. (I’ll say this, low setting, your mans taint…thank me later). Now I understand that some people may frown at the price and to be honest, I totally get it. You’re talking to a girl who made a yearly purchase of those $30 bullets powered by those tiny watch batteries. But when I say this is an investment, it truly is.
For one, it’s longer lasting, will give you far better experiences, is great for both you AND your partner and the thing heats up for crying out loud! I also got the Foaming Anti Bacterial Cleaner which has a light and refreshing Tea Tree scent. Side Note: always clean your toys! In other words, the Drift is a toy that I am sure will become one of your favorite pleasure products. You can check out the Drift and purchase your own at http://www.loradicarlo.com/drift. And if you try it out, tell me what you think. In the meantime, let’s raise a glass to Lora and Cara, and to all those bad ass women giving us the best sex of our lives!
