Silicone Butterfly Miss

Sexpert

The good folks over at Cal Exotics sent me the Silicone Butterfly Kiss this month as part of the Sexpert program. This is the silicone version of their world famous number one selling butterfly. Unfortunately, I hate this thing. I have heard all the rave reviews and I was really excited to get it. But this toy was so far from what I imagined, I am not even sure where to start.

 

Materials: Silicone (massager) & ABS (cap)

Dimensions: 7″ x 1.25″ (2.75″ insertable)

 

Silicone Butterfly Kiss

To be fair, let me mention the good points before I dissect this toy and tell you why I hate it. It is made of body safe silicone. Prior versions of the Butterfly Kiss were made of jelly or TPR, which are inferior materials to silicone. This version is a much highly quality material for about the same price as the original. The Butterfly Kiss is waterproof, which is always nice. If you have a low or shallow g-spot this might provide enough stimulation for you. The pop of the bulbous head might be just the thing for you. If you have a thin labia or a clitoris that protrudes (prior to stimulation), this toy might be a great fit. Those little antenna might be enough to send you over the edge. Also, it has a good price point at less than $30 retail.

This toy has two motors, one in the shaft and one on the butterfly shaped clitoral portion. I had no idea this thing had two motors. It takes 2 AAA batteries for power. Granted, that won’t give me a lot of power, but the silicone of this toy absorbs so much of the vibrations on the butterfly it was ridiculous. I have an expectation that a rabbit style vibe will deliver vibrations (or something) to the clitoris, this vibe didn’t.

The butterfly was clearly meant to deliver something awesome. The wings of this butterfly are meant to rest on either side of the labia while the antenna tickle the clitoris. The body of this butterfly could provide deep rumbly vibes when pressure is applied, but it doesn’t. The antenna are really flimsy and don’t carry vibrations like they should. I tried applying pressure with the butterfly on my clitoris but it has a dip between the wings, where the body is, that just doesn’t allow me to get good pressure there either. My best bet was to totally smash this thing into my labia and pray the vibrations would travel to my clitoris. I found this vibe’s butterfly really frustrating. I am about medium, if you are a bigger girl, (or have bigger labia) forget getting this vibe to hit the clitoris. It can’t. Also, the butterfly portion has visible imperfections in the mold. It looked cheap.

It looks kinda cute. I could see what they were going for. The shaft is short with a bulbous head. The shaft vibrates. Lots of woman love a bulbous head that provides a pop. Some may love a bulbous head with vibrations like the ones the Silicone Butterfly Kiss provides. I wanted more. I wanted the bulbous head to hit my g-spot. I looked at this toy and thought that the head is meant to provide pressure and vibrations on the g-spot. The problem is that it doesn’t. For me at least. It doesn’t provide good pressure for g-spot. I’m sorry, but it has to be said. This thing couldn’t possibly hit my g-spot right. I need pressure. I need firm pressure for g-spot orgasms. The thin shaft is just too flimsy.

The base unscrews to reveal the battery compartment. On the very bottom of the toy is the one button, which is used to turn it on and scroll through the speeds. The button makes an audible click when it is depressed. It has three speeds. Just three. Loud, louder, and loudest. The noise this toy emitted was distracting. I absolutely hate loud toys. A loud toy that can’t distract me enough with it’s vibrations is unforgivable. This toy can be heard through a closed door, down the hallway, into the next room when it is on high. Use it when you are alone, or with a partner who doesn’t mind the noise.

The vibrations on the shaft were actually pretty powerful. The saving grace with this toy is that the shaft’s bulbous head could be used to stimulate the clitoris or it could be used internally, whichever you prefer. I wish this thing would have worked for me, but it didn’t.

The Silicone Butterfly Kiss can be cleaned with soap and water or a sex toy cleaner. It is waterproof so at least clean-up is easy. If you decide to try this toy, use only water-based lubrication. The box it came in said Silicone Butterfly Kiss and had a big picture of the toy. It is not very discreet but it is small enough to be used for storage. The Silicone Butterfly Kiss can be purchased at HedoVibes.

The Duchess

Sexpert

Looking for a little rabbit that delivers strong clitoral vibes? I am always looking for strong clitoral vibes from a rabbit. Since my clitoris is the center of my sexual pleasure, I gravitate toward toys that know how to rock it. I was really excited to see what Cal Exotics sent me this month. The Duchess has strong clitoral vibes in a pretty package. It is part of the Precious Metals line. It is nice to look at and easy to use.

 

Materials: TPR (vibrator) ABS with Metallic Plating (controller) Silicone (buttons)

Dimensions: 8.5″ x 1.5″ (3.5” x 1.25”/shaft, 1.5” x 1”/stimulator)

DSCN5345

The Duchess is a rabbit style vibrator with two motors. It has a special little bump on the shaft. For some reason, I think the bump won me over. The shaft “rotates” or more like moves in a circle. It is suppose to hit the g-spot, close but not for me. The clitoral vibration on this rabbit are a bit loud, but powerful. The powerful vibrations are just what I need. The bump is part of the texture of the shaft. The shaft has enough texture to make thrusting fun. The bump + the strong clitoral vibes make this rabbit a big win for me.

DSCN5349

The clitoral arm comes to a soft point. The point carries vibrations well and is great for pin point stimulation. The clitoral arm will flex back with force, and it provides good pressure on the clitoris. The shaft also comes to a soft point that makes it easy to insert. TPE is safe to use with water-based and silicone based lubricants. The Duchess is waterproof.

The Duchess takes 3 AAA batteries. The bottom of the base unscrews to reveal the battery compartment which slides out. The Duchess has a two button interface. The top button controls the clitoral arm and the button controls the shaft. The motors for this toy work independently so you can pick the combo that works best for you. The clitoral arm has 5 functions and so does the shaft. The first three functions are increases in speed of the clitoral arm. I like the second level the best. the vibrations are very, very buzzy. The shaft rotates one way, the the other, then it alternates, and has two pulsing/alternating rotations.

DSCN5346

DSCN5347

The Duchess can be cleaned with soap and water or a sex toy cleaner. I really like the look of this vibe with all the shiny metal. I can clearly see the pole in the shaft and the bullet in the clitoral shaft. I like that I can see part of the inner workings without it looking tacky. The clear TPR is part of the look for this rabbit.

DSCN5348

The packaging for the Duchess is a plastic box. It is not discrete, but what ever is from Cal Exotics.

DSCN5343

          PROS
  • Strong Clitoral Shaft motor
  • Pretty design
  • Easy to use
  • Feels nice thrusting
  • Two motors can be used independantly
          CONS
  • TPR cannot be steralized, not safe for sharing
  • A bit loud, will be heard through a closed door
  • Takes batteries
  • No storage pouch

The Duchess comes in purple, pink and blue. (I think the blue is nicest looking) I think this toy will work for most women. It is hard for me to like TPR but this toy (and the bump) really did it for me. The Duchess can be purchased here.

Love Rider Lover’s Thong

Sexpert

Somethings I can tell just by looking at something. I knew right away when I saw this item, that this was a bad idea. Made of silicone straps with a bullet attached, the Lover Rider Lover’s Thong is meant to be worn by the man during sex.

Materials: Silicone (straps) ABS (stimulator) PP (hooks)

Dimensions: Bullet 2.5″ x 0.75″, Waist adjusts to 43”

 

LoversThongThe Lover’s Thong is available in black, pink, and purple. The beaded ring has a 1.75″ opening and is meant to stimulate him during sex. Above the ring is the bullet which has 3 speeds and 4 patterns, meant to stimulate her during sex. It is waterproof and made of safe materials. Silicone is compatible with water-based lubrication only. This toy requires a bit of lube to work.

Please notice the model this thong is on is a female, two of the color options are generally considered to be feminine. This is meant to be worn on a man. I am just thinking that a guy would have to be pretty adventurous to try this out. I am trying to picture the couple willing to test this out and drawing a complete blank. . . It took so much convincing to get Miguel to try this out and as he predicted, he hated it.

DSCN5185

The straps adjust but ugh, they are silicone. The silicone straps slide through each buckle which has two straps going into it. The straps make me think of face goggles. Growing up in Florida, I have dealt with dozens of face goggles. The straps stretch to a point and then they require sliding through the buckle to adjust. (I would rather just get the damn salt water in my eye and not deal with it.) You need to be pretty close to the right size when you get this on, it is not easy to adjust. The straps are stretchy, but thin. The straps twist and tangle easily. For the purposes of this review I tried this thing on. It was probably my most unflattering look ever and it was uncomfortable. Imagine a 1/2 inch silicone strap digging in your ass. Not comfortable.

DSCN5182

The bullet slides into a silicone sleeve. It is removable. The beads do not stretch and Miguel reported they were uncomfortable. The great news…the bullet takes watch batteries! There are 6 batteries included in the package, and it take three to run the bullet. This is nice since I have never once bought a watch battery for my toys. I kinda consider watch battery taking toys disposable and just toss them when they don’t work anymore.

DSCN5184

The bullet has 3 speeds and 4 patterns, as I said before. It is strong enough but the angle wasn’t right. Miguel didn’t like the way the beads felt on his cock. Then there was a little issue with the straps. It just wasn’t comfortable during sex, we took it off after a few thrusts.

I would change so many things about this, starting with the silicone straps. They are not comfortable due to their thickness. Also, the straps ends need some sort of cushion. Either the strap ends hit me or him depending on whether he wore it inside out or not. I did not enjoy the straps hitting my most sensitive spots, and you probably wouldn’t like it either. The silicone will rub your skin raw with friction unless it is tight, which is terrible because it can feel like it is cutting in. Worse than that, there is a buckle placed at the bottom of the beaded ring. I am sure we all are familiar with anatomy. If worn by a man under the penis are the balls and taint, on the woman, well this thing is all wrong to be worn by a woman…I could go on and on about how much I disliked this item, but I think you get the point.

The Love Rider Lover’s Thong was a fail on a few levels. Sorry, but I know California Exotics can do better.

Divine -Balance-

Sexpert

 

I am always looking for inexpensive products that I can actually recommend. I know we are not all on a budget that includes over $100 sex toys. I am very picky. I want it to feel good, be easy to use, be made with safe materials, and not be too loud. It seems there are few toys with all this that won’t break the bank. Let me introduce you to the Divine Balance from Cal Exotics… It meets all my standards and is available for less than $30!

Materials: Silicone & ABS Plastic

Dimensions: 7.75” x 1.25” (head 2.75” x 1.25”)

Divine Balance

I really didn’t think too much of this when I first looked at it. The Divine Balance takes 2 AAA batteries, so I didn’t think it would be powerful enough for me. Even with the batteries in it it is really light and feels flimsy. The head is really easy to maneuver, which usually translates to no pressure for my spoiled clitoris. My first impressions were wrong. This toy is pretty awesome and really worked well for me.

The vibe has a one button interface with three speeds. The button is silicone covered and has (3S) written on it, which actually means 3 speeds. [1.Okay, who cares? Except that it bothered me enough to research what it could possibly mean, then it was like, Oh Duh!] You click through the settings, the fourth click turns it off. All three speeds are a steady vibe. The noise factor was something that really surprised me. On the first setting it is barely audible. The second setting it is a low hum. The last setting is a bit high pitched, so not entirely discreet. I would be curious to know what frequency this toy play on. I almost couldn’t stand it on high. I actually prefer this vibe on the 2nd setting.

 

Divine Balance

I know it looks like it has the potential to disappoint but I think the head of this toy makes all the difference. The head of this toy is covered with a two prong silicone cap. Since the cap is removable it makes this toy easier to clean. I needed to use a bit of finesse to get the cap off and back on again, but I was able to do it. I was a bit sad that the toy was not waterproof, but I guess I can’t have everything. Silicone is compatible with water-based lubrication. It can be clean by boiling, washing with soap and water, using a 10% bleach solution, or a sex toy cleaner. The body and head of this toy is made of ABS plastic and can be cleaned by wiping it down.

Divine Balance

They head on the Divine Balance looks like bunny ears and they are really pliable. Again, this is not a pressure producer adding to my disbelief that this toy could be enjoyable. The silicone ears of the head carry vibrations to create two prongs of vibrating pleasure. I loved the feel of this vibe. From the first click I was impressed with its quietness and it power. I know, you can’t believe that a toy with 2 AAA batteries could provide power. It does though. I prefer this toy on the second setting because the third setting is almost too much. (I don’t want to have a Forrest Gump before I even get comfortable.) I love to run this vibe over my clitoris, it feels fantastic. I can apply slight pressure and the ears still carry the vibe. If I want I can also hold the head directly on my clitoris for more coverage over my labia and clitoris.

Divine Balance

The Divine Balance runs on 2 AAA batteries. I had a hard time trying to figure out how to get the compartment open. I had to flip it open with my thumb and then it popped off really easily. The cap has thumb grips, but it still took me a few minutes to figure it out.

Divine Balance

The box for this vibe has a flap that shows off the vibe. This is a bit of an upgrade from Cal Exotics usual box, but it is still not very discreet. It has lots of information about the toy. Unfortunately, the box does not include batteries.

Divine Balance

The Divine Balance has a retail value of $34.99. It is available at HedoVibes for $26.98.

The Original Wild G Vibe

Sexpert

The Original Wild G Vibe is California Exotics #1 selling G. It is a dual stimulation vibrator meant for g-spot and clitoral stimulation. It is large and girthy promising a full feeling on it’s rotating shaft, along with vibrating clitoral stimulation. Unfortunately, the clitoral arm is flimsy and does not give enough pressure to adequately satisfy my clitoral needs. On the flip side, the rotating head gyrated my g-spot in a way that I really loved. The Wild G was a win for me and has something to offer almost every woman.

Materials: TPE and Abs Plastic

Dimensions: main shaft 10″ x 1.75″ (5″ insertable), clitoral arm 3″

The Original Wild G Vibe has rotating beads that spin around and add to stimulation right at the level of my PC muscles when this vibe is inserted. The head of this vibe is rounded but girthy enough to require the use of lubrication for insertion. The shaft has a slight curve which lends even more g-spot stimulation when it rotates around. The material of the main shaft and clitoral arm is TPE and the battery compartment and control panel is plastic. TPE is compatible with silicone or water-based lubrication. This vibe runs on 3 AA batteries, the plastic cap screws off very easily and the battery compartment comes out for convenience.

The Original Wild G is easy to use and has a 5 button interface which includes a dedicated on/off button. It has up and down arrows on the buttons to increase or decrease vibration or rotation speed. It has three levels of vibration and three speeds of rotation. The beads are what rotate and the shaft bends ever so slightly bumping into my g-spot in the most delicious way. There are also three LED lights above both of the rows of buttons so you can see which level you have it on.

 

The beads don’t jam when I clinch them tight during orgasm and the shaft doesn’t stop rotating or “whine” like I have seen some other rabbit do when clenched.

The volume of this toy is minimal, but still loud enough for me not to call it really discreet. It is quieter than most rabbits I have tried, (with the exception of luxury vibes which are almost silent). The Original G vibe will be heard across the room, but can easily be drowned out with some steady background noise. Even a small fan might cover the noise of this vibe up, especially once it is inserted. Using only the clitoral shaft makes this toy a bit quieter as well, but then you miss out on the gently bumping of the g-spot that makes this toy so great. The original Wild G was able to hit my g-spot just right, and my g-spot is pretty high up.

BUT…..

The problem I found is that this vibe’s clitoral arm is pretty flimsy. It takes almost no effort to push this arm out of the way. The arm features three nubs on the inside, which are suppose to add stimulation to the clitoris and labia. The nub on the end would be really brilliant and flap on my clitoris making orgasm inevitable if only it didn’t move out of the way with the slightest bit of pressure. I tried just holding the clitoral arm where I wanted it, but this is not something I expected to be doing with a rabbit. The clitoral arm has a full sized bullet inside of it. For me the bullet doesn’t work without pressure. I didn’t like having to hold the arm where I wanted it. It was really the only way I could make this toy work for me though. The only thing holding the clitoral arm in place is the flexible TPE and the wires connecting the bullet to the main shaft. Too bad really, this vibe would have fared so much better with a more ridged clitoral shaft.

The original Wild G is waterproof for easy clean up. TPE can be cleaned with soap and water or a sex toy cleaner. The packaging for this toy was a plastic clamshell with a paper insert describing the toy inside. It is not discreet at all. I store this toy in a plastic bag away from my other toys, since some materials do not play well with others.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I liked this vibe for it’s g-spot curve and minimal noise. I also loved that it is waterproof. I am pissed about the clitoral arm. The beauty of a rabbit is that it is designed to stimulated my clitoris and (hopefully) my g-spot at the same time. The fact that I had to hold the clitoral arm to create pressure there kinda sucked, but I am a spoiled customer. Some women may find the buzzy, flimsy clitoral arm is just enough stimulation, but I was disappointed. The g-spot bend may not be enough for some woman. So, although this g-spot bend worked for me, I doubt it will for every woman.  I was able to orgasm with this toy, over and over again. This rabbit won me over with the g-spot bend. The vibrations from the bullet are pretty powerful on their own, just not quite powerful enough for my spoiled clitoris. I think most woman will find this toy has plenty to offer.

The Original Wild G retails at $77.99

E.V.A. Massager

Sexpert

 

E.V.A. “Extreme Vibrating Action” Massager was sent to me this month from California Exotics. I wanted to love this toy. I don’t think the name suits it very well. The vibrations that this toy delivers are buzzy at best. The handle is long enough for thrusting, it’s made of body-safe silicone, it is waterproof…but the flexible shaft just didn’t pleasure me the way it was meant to. This vibe might work for someone who wants buzzy vibes on their g-spot without firm pressure. I love buzzy vibes for g-spot, but firm pressure is a must for me.

Materials: Silicone and ABS Plastic

Dimensions: 7.25″ x 1.25″, 6.25″ insertable

There is so much to love about the length of this vibe. I found thrusting this vibe was easy enough. I was really frustrated with the shaft/tip that didn’t give enough pressure. It has a tapered head which makes it easy to insert. The silicone is smooth without a lot of drag. I am so disappointed about the flexible shaft I could cry. The shape of the product was perfect for me but the shaft is so flexible I just couldn’t get enough pressure to satisfy my g-spot.

The shaft has no texture that I could feel. It is smooth and has a soft silicone tip angled for g-spot (gah! if only). The E.V.A. has a two button interface with a dedicated on/off switch. The button on the top is the on/off button, it looks sort of like this Φ. The bottom button controls the 7 functions, it looks like this ⓦ. The first three settings are low, medium, and high. The rest of the settings are pulsations, waves and escalations. The vibrations are weak. Surface buzzy not at all deep and rumbly. The toy is pretty quiet, almost silent even at the highest setting. I could barely hear it over the television…The vibe runs on 2 AAA batteries. The batteries insert on the bottom. The removable cap is the same, difficult to open twist-lock type, that is found on other Cal Exotics toys. It is water-tight but really hard to close.

Being waterproof makes this toy easy to clean. I use soap and water or a sex toy cleaner. Honestly, I can barely go on with this review. The toy had a lot of promise but being so flexible was a huge disappointment. That coupled with the fact that vibrations are just buzzy made this useless for clitoral stimulation. I wouldn’t recommend this toy for even clitoral stimulation. Unless, of course, surface buzzy vibrations really do it for you. Actually in that case there are plenty of less expensive options.
