Like a lot of other sex toy's out there, I'm sure Bree Olson (or her
team, or whoever she has licensed to use her name) started out with
good intentions when they created the Bree Olson's Kitten With a Whip
Set. A cute beginners BDSM set, designed to be a little girly (lilac,
swirled, and lacey), and a little rough (have you noticed the fact it's
a whip?). Naughty & nice, right?
First up, the blindfold. Everyone needs one of these- whether they use
it for sex or not. It makes sleeping in the most bizarre places
manageable. I like the fact this mask has two straps on the back, so
it's less likely to slip during sex (or sleep). The material is
obviously synthetic, but it's very malleable and should sit well on my
face. The lilac color isn't bad, but the faux lace, the pattern on the
material, and the little lace up thing in the middle all scream tacky.
I won't be able to see it if I wear it, so I throw it on and attempt to
give it the first bed test- sleeping in my car on my lunch break. Five
minutes into my nap and I throw this thing off in disgust. They forgot
people have noses and the blindfold is a perfect oval so it lifts up
off the skin on the bottom letting in a ton of light. If you were using
this for blindfolding purposes during sex, it'd be a complete waste.
Next up, the whip. Same tacky design on the handle. The handle is firm
though, I'm guessing there is plastic underneath it. And there's a
convenient wrist strap which is nice as I've accidentally thrown a whip
across the room. The pieces are approximately 15" long- something a
little intimidating- especially for my partner who's never used a whip
before. As what seems to be a set aimed at beginners, this would have
been more successful if these were in the 8-10" range in my opinion.
The tendrils are obviously synthetic, stiff, and don't move well.
As for the bed test, for me to get the whip moving in a fluid motion, I
have to use quite a bit of force. While I'm all for a little pain in
the bedroom, the force required of the fluid motions would have
certainly left welts, probably bloody ones, so we skip this. It's fun
to lightly whack him with it from time to time, but it just feels so
cheap and tacky that I don't feel very dominant and toss the whip to
the side in favor of my hand slapping him across the face.
Somewhere in the mix of creating this set, everything went wrong. The
materials are cheap so the girly pieces come off as tacky. Because the
materials are cheap, neither the blindfold or the whip are pieces I'd
use- in spite of their tackiness. This set is neither naughty or nice
despite their attempts to make it that way. I'm saying skip it
