I wanted this vibe since the first time I laid eyes on it. The colors are what really drew me in. The company bSwish has done the same color scheme for this lazy s shaped massager as they did for the bCurious, using black with a hot pink stripe at the seam. I picked the bBold for review from WeLoveToys when they asked me what I would like. I was hoping I would love it as much as the bCurious and I ended up torn on this one.
Materials: PU Coated Plastic and Silicone
Dimensions: 7.25″ x 2″ (5″ insertable)
The bBold is a beautiful rechargeable vibe. It is hard and made of PU coated plastic giving it a velvety smooth finish.The vibe is very light and only weighs about 0.3 lb. The small amount of weight it does have is all contained in the head on the opposite side of the controls. The head vibrated much more than the base (where the controls are). So this vibe is comfortable in my hands, even with extended use.
There are smooth seams on the side, but I didn’t feel them during use. The seam and the buttons on the bBold are silicone. What I did feel was a hard flat curve that almost hit my g-spot, but not quite. To be fair, my g-spot is high and only requires about a fingers width to properly stimulate. I knew right away this vibe wouldn’t be right for my g-spot. I was hoping this vibe, with it’s fat head would work for clitoral vibrations. This vibe is only 3 out of 5 on my vroom scale. Internally this would have been perfect for my g-spot, externally my clitoris demands something stronger. The flattened head of vibe made insertion without lubrication a bit uncomfortable. I had to warm up a bit first. This vibe is compatible with water based lubrication.
The bBold vibe has an indent on the underside of the head that I guess is meant to help with clitoral stimulation. I didn’t think it was useful at all, for external stimulation. The vibe is just not enough for me. I was able to orgasm, but it took a looong time with this vibe.
This vibe has a two button interface. The bBold has a dedicated on/off switch. The buttons light up when the vibe is on with a blue LED light. The first three are low, medium, and high. There isn’t a big difference between low and medium, but high is a bit better. The four other functions are all patterns of pulses.
This toy was pretty quiet and discreet. I had read a few reviews that said this toy was loud and that just isn’t true. This vibe is much quieter than I thought it would be. It would not be heard through a closed door and is barely audible across the room.
It takes 4 hours to reach a full charge and that will give 2 hours of play. The LED light under the controls blinks when it is plugged in and recharging. The bBold came with a USB cord for recharging. The cord is pretty long and can be plugged into a USB adapter if you prefer to charge it from a wall socket. The port for the cord is covered with silicone and keeps the vibe water resistant. The port for the cord opens and you can see clear up to the control button. It is very effective at keeping water out but I wouldn’t submerge this toy.
The bBold came in a big black box. The box contained a small owners guide, the charging cord, and a storage bag. The storage bag is really stiff and not quite big enough for the cord and the vibe. It looks pretty though and keeps the vibe discreet.
I have really mixed feeling about this vibe. If you would love a rechargeable, waterproof vibe with moderate buzzy vibrations then this will probably fit the bill. If you need something strong with a pronounced g-spot curve I would not recommend this vibe.
The bSwish bBold can be purchased at WeLoveToys.
