I had heard of these little beauties all over my twitter but then I decided to order me some to see what the fuss was all about. The idea of a towel specifically for sexual after care had never entered my head but I decided to give it a go and see what would happen.
The site where you can order both the Cumpanion and the CuddleBean is very accessible for the blind. This gave it a big huge plus for me. Also Anna Rae was very helpful and friendly and she checked to see if everything was going well.
The description of the towels on the page gave me a very good idea of what to expect when they arrived. I ordered the blue Cumpanion and it was just as described. This is an oval shaped, soft microfibre towel 24 inches by 15 inches (60.96cm by 38.1cm) with an edge trimmed in satin with a pocket at one end.
The oval shape and the softness of the microfibre give the towel a soft and sensuous feel, though if you have an issue with the texture of microfibre, be warned that this is what it is. Also, make sure you don’t use fabric softeners as it takes the softness away but vinegar is a good substitute.
I used the towel both when I was masturbating alone and also when I was playing with someone else and needed to clean up afterwards and it was not abrasive and removed more of the mess than if I had used normal towels or tissues.
The only thing I can say that can be a bugbear if you are not careful is that if you are living outside of America, shipping and customs can bite you, though this has more to do with the postal service and with Customs than with the company itself.
To conclude: I would definitely recommend the Cumpanion to anyone who would like a towel to use specifically for sexual aftercare.
I would like to thank Anna Rae for the pictures to go with this review. This post was endorsed, though not sponsored by, www.byannarae.com and is completely my own opinion and work.
