I began my search for an adult subscription box a little while ago. I wanted to find a box that had high quality items for a decent price so I wouldn’t have to go search for things myself, but usually these boxes contain products you don’t typically find in your local sex shops.
I came across a list of adult boxes and began clicking away, hoping to find one that suits my desires and preferences. I got a bit distraught and only saw one that peaked my interest as I went down the alphabetically-ordered list (The Fantasy Box, which I will touch on later), until I got to the end of the list and saw…
From the website to the contents of the box, I was sold. Elegant, dark, sexy… All of which fit me. I HAD to find out more. I wanted to be sure before I subscribed though, and I wanted to make sure it was truly as good as it seemed.
And I tell you… IT IS.
The Unbound Box is a quarterly box, meaning you receive a box every three months. You pay $65 a quarter which is a little more than I am used to paying for a subscription box, but after reviewing the contents of the box, I understand why. Unbound packs their boxes with high-end products from high-class brands (JimmyJane, Good Clean Love, Sustain, Maison Close, Lelo, etc.) and does not disappoint.
I received the September Erotic Education Box for review (and by the way, their customer service is absolutely fabulous, which is ALWAYS a plus for me with a company). Whoa buddy. I love everything in this box.
This is all the items from the box. They arrived in a black cardboard box, wrapped in purple tissue paper. Simple packaging, I didn’t have to fiddle with it too much to get everything out. I laid everything out and got to exploring.
Sustain Condoms are pretty legit.
They are eco-friendly and socially conscious too! 10% of the pretax proceeds from their condoms go to helping women who don’t have access to STD testing, breast exams, family planning, and other basic feminine health concerns. Cool huh? And they are vegan and fair trade certified, individually tested, use premium latex, and are fragrance free! Sustain makes ultra thin, tailored fit (a little more snug), and comfort fit (a little wider at the tip so your guy can feel you more at the head). Check them out here, they come in packs of 3 and 10.
Unfortunately (sorta) I haven’t seen the inside of a condom packet in years so… I won’t know how awesome they are. But I so encourage everyone else to try them out!
Next, we have a bralette and ruler from Maison Close.
Now these two were SO hot to me. The bralette is actually…
A CUPLESS BRA.
A bra with no cups. Just… Elastic and lace. This is how it’s supposed to fit.
I personally don’t do lingerie because with Hubs, it’s a waste. I buy it, look hella sexy, he gawks at it for all of 90 seconds, I turn around and bend over or something, and he says, “Aight, now take it off.” And we have sex.
Lace wasted. But with this, it doesn’t have to come off, and you get all the sexiness of nudity and lingerie combined. And this ruler! A sexy oversized (40 inch) wooden ruler with gold printing and a pretty gold tassel, housed in a velvet pouch. Perfect for spanking, and Unbound did a great job of including this in this box for it’s “lesson”, which is “Erotic Education”. Clever! Another win.
Next on the list, we have the Babeland Honey Vanilla Massage candle.
For starters, Babeland is a FANTASTIC company to begin with. They donate and support different causes with their sex toys, and they often have a lot of eco-friendly and sustainable products. But this candle… wow. I loooove everything chocolate, vanilla, honey, marzipan, almond… Pretty much anything that smells like pastries and non-fruit dessert. This candle smells like sex and candy in a jar *cue Marcy Playground’s “Sex and Candy”*. The scent is sweet but not sickly, but a sexy sweet that will make your partner want to lick you all over. When you light the candle, it melts into an oil that you can use for massage, lotion, whatever. SCORE, because it smells so good I wanna use it as lotion. And underneath the lid, there’s a mini brush so you can brush on the oil! The candle is packed with natural ingredients; the only artificial thing in there is the fragrance and even that is phthalate-free. I can’t wait to slather some on after I light this candle, maybe with a warm bath full of bubbles and bath oil.
And Unbound has included a matchbox so you can light the candle. It’s a one-stop shop with this box.
And last but totally not least: The Big Book of Submission, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel.
This is an erotica book filled with 69 (heh) kinky tales and stories featuring dominance, submission, bondage, and all types of sexiness. Being that Hubs and I are into the D/s (Dominance/submission) scene, this added just the right OOMPH to this box. I only read one story so far, but hot damn. I’m probably gonna read more tonight. If you liked 50 Shades (I didn’t read it… Tragic, I know), I’m sure you’ll dig this.
So this is how I think the box usage will go for some folks:
-You will read The Big Book of Submission and get turned on like crazy
-You will slip on the bra from Maison Close and find your partner
-Begin make out session
-You will have your partner give you a sexy massage with the Babeland Honey Vanilla massage candle (lit with the Unbound matches)
-He will slip on the Sustain condoms, grab the ruler from Maison Close, and you will have some of the hottest sex of your life.
Overall, I think this box was absolutely perfect. It had a plethora of all sorts of products, including brands I have never heard of. I love that the candle is natural and has such a sexy REAL smell, and the condoms are vegan and eco-friendly. The items from Maison Close are unique and uber hot, and The Big Book of Submission is just the right thing to get you in the mood and sort of get your feet wet in the BDSM world.
My only criticism of the box is that it’s only every 3 months. As good as it is, I would want it every 1 or 2 months!
I’m definitely subscribing after reviewing this box. I feel like it was made for me and my interests, the products included are high quality and very unique, and you can tell that they try their best to make sure their customers are taken care of and have the BEST.
If you want to subscribe, use code GBL20 for 20% off of your first box! Trust me… It’s ALL THE WAY worth it. Subscribe here!
I’ll be sitting with a cup of tea reading this book tonight. Only a few stories a night. I think Hubs will be pleased… I KNOW I will.
GREAT job, Unbound.
