I know, I know. But, I’ve made worse puns before, haven’t I? Anyway, you’re not here because you care about my hideous attempt at cute review titles. You’re here because you’re dying to know how Babeland’s speculum checks out. Aren’t you?
Oh, no, come back! Don’t get scared off just because I said the dreaded “S” word. Speculum doesn’t have to be a scary word. (Though, it can be if you want too…) Speculums can be sexy! It can be fun to be “opened up” in such a way that your lover (or you!) can see inside one of your most erotic zones. And, it doesn’t have to hurt or be cold or terrible like at the doctor’s office. Promise.
(Though, again.. If you’re the type who likes that sort of thing…)
Here’s the speculum I received:
See? It’s almost cute, not scary at all! As you can see, it’s made from plastic, and very smooth. The insertable end is rounded so it won’t hurt when it’s coming or going, and there are no sharp parts which make contact with the vagina.
Before I get too far into this, just to make sure we’re all on the same page – this is a vaginal speculum. Anal speculums look much different. Do not use this on your back door!
Since Babeland only had “Plastic” written in the product description, I decided to dig deeper to find out what this speculum is actually made of. K, from Babeland, emailed me back quickly (as she always does), and let me know that the toy is actually made of PU plastic. I’d never heard of PU plastic, but K informed me that it is just as non-porous as ABS plastic, but she recommends not sharing it with anyone (unless you are fluid bonded, of course). As a personally policy, Master and me don’t like to share anything that cannot be boiled (except with each other), but each person will need to decide that for him or herself.
We had a lot of fun with this one, in use, but we also ran into a bit of trouble. When I’m at the doctor’s office, I’m not nearly as wet as I am when I’m with Master (of course!), and a couple of times, Master would insert the speculum, and a minute or two later, it would slide out because I was too wet. He had to keep taking it out, wiping it off, and re-inserting it. Eventually, he just decided to hold it in place.
Using a speculum offers you a very different view of your bits! Master loved the look he got. He said it was very sexy seeing how pink and wet I was. He also is one of those people who enjoys “tools”, so he really liked the hands-on fun this allowed. He also said that it was fun to be able to reach a finger inside and touch things that he could also see clearly, thanks to the speculum’s clear plastic.
From the receiver’s end, I really liked being open to Master in this way. This is something totally different than anything we’ve tried. I also found the experience to be mildly humiliating, which is a big turn on to me. I know that if we had another partner using this on me, it’d be a lot more humiliating to me, but I just am so comfortable with Master that it is hard for him to humiliate me. If you like humiliation, I’d sure this would be a great tool for you.
Of course, this is also a great item if you have a medical fetish. That’s not really Master or my thing, but this would be a great piece for someone who does like medical play.
If you’re just curious about what you look like down below, this is a great education tool. You can get out your handy mirror, and use the speculum to see yourself from a different perspective. It is an inexpensive item, but very versatile.
Cleaning this one is a bit tricky. The two pieces come apart, so you can get to everything fairly simply. The hard part is all the bits and bobs inside. There’s a lot of little “crevices” for lube, ejaculate, and more to get stuck in, and you’ll have to spend some time washing this to get it completely clean. You may use soap and water, a toy cleaner, or a 10% bleach solution.
Master and me really love the speculum, and I’m giving it four paws. I took off one star, because cleaning it can be a bit of a pain.Thank you so much, Babeland, for allowing me the chance to try out this toy in exchange for an honest and fair review.
