Vacbed Science: A Customer Compares his Kink Engineering Vac-products:
We have a customer who enjoyed his Kink Engineering Vacbed (purchased in 2009) so much that he also got hold of a Vac-Cube, and a Vac-Tower so that he could try and share with his friends ALL of the great experiences from Kink Engineering. Here’s his thoughts on the products.
Q: How are your three products from Kink Engineering holding up to use?
A: Having had them over a year, the toys are holding up OK.
The vacbed got a hole in it because I was not careful when putting the frame together. Now that it’s been back to you for repairs (nice job by the way - I love the Kink Engineering Logo overlay you used to hide the repairs!) it’s back in business and as good as ever.
The cube took some damage during a play session, then a bit more during the repairs (latex + zipper bag = BAD), but we got it fixed locally as the damage was not too bad. The repairs seem to have enhanced the effectiveness of the neck even.
The Vac-tower has done great. Holding up quite well despite some very rough usage.
Q: How would you compare the three products?
A: Overall the vac-tower gets a better reception. More comfortable, more exposed than the cube so more parts available to tease, and with the head out it suits people that the head-in vacbed freaks out. The longest session with the tower is about twice as long as the cube.
People seem to have a tough time finding a spot they can stay for long term in in the cube. The neck seals really well, which is exactly the opposite of what I was expecting.
Vacbed: Highest comfort, except for some people who have breathing/claustrophobia issues. [Note: He chose a head inside design with “Face Relief with Tube” style breathing option] The wide bore breathing tube really helps here, along with the face relief. The longest, most intense sessions have been in the bed.
Vac-Cube: Can be uncomfortable. The neck seal tends to pinch if the person is not lined up properly, difficult to find a good position to kneel/sit in. Padding under the cube helps. It’s less accessible as the body parts you want to reach tend to be hard to get to. It makes for a good short-term bondage comedy - Good at a party for short rides, but not as good for long scenes. The PVC piping scares people at first, as it creaks a LOT when you flip and turn the cube - but holds together surprisingly well. Hardest to assemble.
Vac-Tower: Much more comfortable than the cube, neck still pinches sometimes but tends to annoy people less. The best option for teasing, as both sides are nicely open to touching/spanking. Tends to scare new users until they realize that A) its NOT as unstable as it looks, and B) the creaking of the frame when the person struggles isn’t a problem (same as the cube). Probably the easiest of the three to assemble once you know how.
Many thanks to our Anonymous customer for the reivews and the purchases. I hope this information helps you choose the right vacbed, vac-cube or vac-tower for your playroom, photoshoot, porn site, or dungeon.
INBOX ZERO! I’m more efficient!
I just got my gmail inbox for the business down to zero. Nothing hanging over my head, everything has been dealt with in accordance to the Inbox Zero system.
Delete: Spam/garbage/unactionable/unuseful = deleted! (I like to put on a Strong Bad voice for that part)
Delegate: Give it to someone else - Task it to an employee to action, forward it to another expert, CC the person who sent it so they know they’ve been moved to someone else.
Respond: Fire back a quick question or answer and move on. Pass the hot potato… don’t hold on to it.
Defer: Add it to the google task list and deal with it during my scheduled administration time (Daily 1 hour, Weekly 3 hour roundup)
Do: Take the time to actually do the action required by the email. This is the best one. If it’s a 0-5min task, just get it done.
Following this can get the email inbox guilt under control, and free up LOTS of time for the REAL work of designing, production, writing, coding, whatever. (It helps to do some background studies of Getting Things Done) And if you don’t know what I’m talking about… you gotta check out Merlin Mann’s talk to Google about Inbox Zero.
God I feel good! Productivity!!!!!
Thanks Merlin (Truck spank) Mann. You add value to the world.
(Follow Merlin’s Tumblr here, sometimes brilliant, sometimes funny, sometimes just odd. Very very good.)
Fix the economy! Help someone start a business by getting training!
It was not all that long ago (2008) that I took the course that changed my life and catapulted me into owning/opperating a latex design business. Learning the tools of a trade has unlocked the creative potential that was formerly left to the inside of my head… now that my hands know how to finish the job.
Rachel Grey is trying to do the same but for Shoe design and I like the cut of her jib. If you have a few bucks kicking around your paypal account, why not donate a little to help her out on her goal for paying for some professional training!
DONATE TO THE SHOEMAKING COURSE FUND FOR RACHEL GREY
P.s. THIS IS WHAT THIS DAMN ECONOMY NEEDS!!! Help for enthusiastic risk taking entrepreneurs, artists and hard workers… Not tax rebates for millionaires. I’m so glad I’m Canadian…
I just got off the phone with the people who run the small shoe school I am hoping to attend. Not only are they lovely people for allowing me to take classes that are already full, but I ended the call with excited jitters running through me. This sounds like exactly the sort of education I need….
