The Silicone Posh Massager is one of those toys I’ve always had my eye on. It is decently cheap (especially for being silicone), it’s widely available and I’ve seen several positive reviews on it. I was pretty excited about getting it to review from Vibrator.com, a company I haven’t had a chance to review for before. Unfortunately, this toy just didn’t do it for me.

Packaging

The packaging is not cute or classy by any standard. It has a picture of a girl grinning widely, on a piece of cardboard that’s sandwiched in between the plastic clamshell and the toy. The information provided on the cardboard is minimal. I would imagine this toy has been around for at least 3 years, considering the copyright on the package is for 2007. The plastic clamshell is too large for storage, so I’m going to recycle it.

As for the info the package, there’s really nothing worth mentioning, but these are the points they stress: “Waterproof”, “100% silicone”, “Powerful”, “2 Speed”.


Materials

The packaging claims it is “100% silicone” but I’m doubtful. When I first opened the package, it smelled horrible — vaguely rubber-like. Silicone (at least the high-quality kind) doesn’t have any smell. I did a quick rinse with soap and water but it didn’t seem to help the smell at all.

Almost three weeks later, the smell is seriously diminished, but is still noticeable when the toy is within a few inches of my nose. I wonder if this smell isn’t the battery compartment, which is some kind of plastic inside the silicone ‘skin’.

The silicone itself is really soft to the touch, and the thin layer that’s on top of the hard plastic interior is pretty squishy.

How to Use

Simply throw one AA battery (not included) in the bottom and twist on the cap tight. There’s a press button that serves two functions: on/off and vibration level change. Press once for mild vibration, press again for moderate and press again to turn off.

There isn’t really a ‘high’ level, but unfortunately both mild and moderate are fairly loud. Low level could be heard through covers, and high almost definitely can be heard through a closed door.

The packaging advertises the toy as being waterproof, which is clearly visible by the thick o-ring around the battery case. I didn’t try it because I don’t particularly like using loud toys in a room that echoes but it held up fine after each wash with water in the sink.

My Use

In a sentence, this toy couldn’t do it for me. The vibrations are just too weak. The tip feels like there’s a gap between it and the motor, so there’s no way to make sure the vibes are pinpointed directly where I want them.

I don’t think the shape is meant for insertion, but I tried anyways. Use water-based lube, as always with silicone toys. However, even with the help of lube, it was still uncomfortable. There are two small rings under the head and surprisingly they irritated me.

The button is easy to use, however, it can be inconvenient. I keep wishing for a dedicated ‘on/off’ button. When the button is completely depressed, the vibrations stop, even when I’m just switching functions.

Not to mention, this toy is LOUD. I can hear it no matter how many covers I put on top, and I’m pretty sure that it can always be heard through a closed door.

All in all, there are better choices; it’s not hard to find a vibrator that don’t stink and is decently strong.

Pleasurists adult product review round-up

Starting off, I want to thank the awesome people over at MyPleasure, for being so patient with me in getting this review out, and of course, thank them for providing the toy I am reviewing!

When I first saw the design of the Tango Dancer, I thought “Toothbrush?” and I was definitely dubious as to whether or not this would be a successful toy. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. Not to mention, the color is wonderful in person. I’m so tired of pink toys; this toy is a playful twilightly/indigo combination.

Packaging

There’s nothing here worth commenting on. No naked ladies, but no classiness. It was just a plain plastic shell and a cardboard insert that lists a small bit of info.

The first thing I noticed was California Exotics pushing their “State of the Art Memory Chip”. Now, I don’t claim to know much about technology but this makes me extremely skeptical. Quote from the back of the package: “State of the Art Memory Chip Allows You to Turn Off Vibrator and Later Resume on the Same Function!” And it does exactly that, but I felt like they shouldn’t act like it is some huge innovation because other companies have had vibrators doing this for years.

Edit: Evidently this toy has been out for awhile and was one of the first toys to have this ‘memory chip’ technology. The fact that it’s been manufactured for so long is a good sign to me.

I won’t be keeping this toy in its annoying little plastic clamshell package. It takes forever to put it back and it doesn’t close completely anymore, no matter how perfectly I try to put it in.

Another thing I hated about the package was this sentence from the cover, “Feel the Rhythm with this Totally Multi-Function, Satiny Soft, Ultra Powerful, Magical Wand!” I can handle a little bit of ‘floofy’ language, but, I’m sorry, ‘magical wand’? No. No. No. Just Don’t.

Materials

The long tip and parts of the handle are crafted from a silky TPR silicone. The very very top is slightly flexible, the handle is completely stiff ABS plastic. I kinda wish the tip were as firm as the handle because when I try to press it into my clit, it bends away a tiny bit. Some people will like this, I imagine, because the material is softer and could be considered ‘gentler’. I have to press really hard to get the tip to point north, everything up to slightly past the narrow neck is complete, immobile, stiff, rigid silicone covered plastic.

TPR silicone is not quite pure silicone, so only use water based lubes, or you run the risk of ruining your toy. Wash with soap and water after each use to keep it clean and safe!

How to Use

I understand this toy is being marketed as a g-spot toy, but it certainly did not do anything for me because it was so thin! My g-spot needs broad stimulation. Luckily, my clit loves to have the kind of pinpoint stimulation that this toy is built for.

The vibrations are in the moderate to deep range, and that is the kind that works best for me.

There are two buttons on the bottom: “Power” on/off and “Cycle” through the vibrations levels. The ‘memory chip’ that Cal Exotics is so proud of does indeed work. I always turn it on, get off on that one level and turn it right back off. There are 3 steady vibration levels, and 7 patterns that vary in strength and speed.

2 AAA batteries are required for use, but are easy to put in (thank god!) and there’s a reassuring ‘click’ when the bottom is screwed into place.

My Use

My clit and I love this toy. Love it. Despite the whispery, almost kinda loud motor that can be heard through covers but (probably) not through the door. Keep some music or a TV on in the background and this toy will just sound like whitenoise.

I only ever use the highest steady vibration level that this toy has. None of the patterns are exactly what my body needs.

The only thing I really cannot stand? The wristband with the plastic heart bead. I’m a big girl, I can hold onto my vibrator(s) just fine.

The best use I’ve ever had with this toy comes in conjunction with a partner. I used this one night after getting really turned on. This is by far one of the best vibrators I’ve used that fits so comfortably in between two people. Its size is perfect to hold in hand. When I’m using in between the two of us, I hold it kind of like I would hold a whisk.

I started using it the moment his penis went in (after a few orgasms that he had brought on with his fingers), and I had one of the most intense orgasms ever. Like, “Top Three,” at least. I lost control of my vocal cords and just screamed in pleasure. I’m so glad no one was home when we did this because it probably sounded like I was being injured. Badly.

Toothbrush appearance or not, this one will definitely be staying at the top of the toy drawer at his house.

Thanks so much again My Pleasure for sending me this toy to review!

My Pleasure, retailer of fine sex toys, sent me the very fine Beyond One vibrator to review. This is one of those toys I’ve been dying to try. The shape is aesthetically and body pleasing, it comes from a company that’s highly reputable, and has reviews praising it all over the Internet.

Packaging

The Beyond one comes in a very discrete, classy package. There’s a white box that holds a piece of firm black foam that’s shaped to fit the toy. There’s a sleeve of magenta cardboard that wraps around the foam. On the underside of the sleeve, all the information about the toy is visible. I didn’t particularly like this because I don’t want to deconstruct the package in order to find out about the different modes of vibration and whatnot.

The other thing that bothered me was the awful smell that hit me right after I opened the box. It was a strange mix of musk and foam. I took the toy out of the foam, washed it with soap and water and left the foam to air out in a drawer. After that, the toy smelled fine but I didn’t want to put it back in the foam. After a day or two, the smell wasn’t noticeable at all.

Materials

The Beyond one is completely silicone, meaning it’s easy to sterilize between partners. Don’t use a silicone-based lube, but do use plenty of water-based, because it can feel a little big during insertion.

The silicone has a funny knob at the end that is pretty much guaranteed to hit the g-pot. I don’t particularly like thrusting with this toy but some small rocking feels fantastic.

How to Use

It isn’t waterproof so don’t get the mechanics (i.e. the handle) under water. They claim it’s splash proof but I would be careful in the shower because the controls don’t feel as well protected as I would like.

The only way to turn it on or switch modes it to hit the button quickly, if you hold it down, nothing will happen.

There are 9 settings; the first three are steady vibrations, the next six are patterns with different speeds and strengths.

They advertise having ‘whisper technology’ and I took that to mean it would be whisper-quiet. It isn’t as quiet as I was hoping. It does have a faint ‘shhh’ quality to the noise, making it sound like a whisper.

The good news is that the sound doesn’t increase dramatically with the vibration levels; it’s about the same volume no matter what you’re doing. In fact, the sound reminds me of a battery operated fan or air conditioner.

The bottom is a little tricky to get on and off correctly, but it won’t turn on if you’ve got it on wrong, and makes a solid click when you get it twisted on correctly.

It uses 2 AAA batteries that do not come with the toy. I had to steal the ones from my TV remote to use this toy, because don’t you know, I run out right when I get the toy I’ve been dying to try? But, the good news is that even though they were partially used when I put them in, they still haven’t run out. This toy doesn’t use batteries quickly at all.

My Use

I love how much stimulation my g-spot gets from this toy, no thrusting necessary. I’m a little worried that some people are going to hate the “g-spot knob” because it is really big. Also, because it’s so big, I couldn’t get the pinpoint stimulation I crave. Not to say I couldn’t climax because the vibrations were excellent. Rumbly but not too deep.

At the bottom of the knob there are three small ridges that I believe are meant to stimulate the vaginal opening. Unless I purposefully angled the toy to a certain degree I couldn’t feel them at all; when I could feel them they were more abrasive than pleasurable.

I love the shape of this toy and how well it targets my g-spot. Definitely a very well made toy with excellent features. Virgins and beginning toy users may have a little difficulty with the size but I believe most people would be delighted with the Beyond One.

Thanks again, MyPleasure!


The Orion from Evolved Novelties is an adorable, small, easy to use toy. It isn’t very eye-catching but when DailySexToys.com offered it to me, I was more than happy than happy to review it for them. I have the red Orion and it is a gorgeous shade of red. Definitely adds to the holiday cheer for me!

Packaging

Orion is a part of the Bottle Rockets line, so it comes in a package that’s shaped like a mini bottle; it’s about as tall as a coke can. I’ll admit, it took me about five minutes for me to open the container. Hint, the top is NOT the way to get in. Turns out, the bottom is the way to go. Simply screw off and the toy comes out, easy as pie.

However, because the toy is sitting on its on/off push button in the bottle, it’s not the best place to store it because it’s remarkably easy to turn it on, accidentally.

Information on the outside talks about the materials and the manufacturer, so nothing too exciting.

Materials

One of the great things about this toy is that it’s silicone, covering some kind of hard plastic, I believe. It isn’t squishy at all but it does have that matte texture that silicone toys usually have. Powered by one AA battery, not included, and controlled by a push button on the bottom. The button has an especially soft layer of material covering it, while the base (the silver band and below) is hard plastic.

The only difference between this toy and the rest of the line is the shape of each. There are four, but I personally like this one visually the best. It’s almost like a really skinny hot air balloon with indentions running vertically up the sides. I can’t feel this texture in use and it’s a little annoying to clean but it is cute to look at.

How to Use

The Orion is completely waterproof, making it great for bath time fun. Just slide a single battery into the bottom and it’s ready to go. I haven’t used it underwater for any extended period of use, but I have no doubt that it is waterproof.

Make sure to only use waterbased lubricants because silicone lubes will damage the surface texture of the toy.

To clean, you can use a 10% bleach solution or make sure the bottom is tightly sealed and wash with hot water and soap.

The button is very simple to use, just push in once to turn it on and off again to stop.

My Use

I was a little surprised at how loud this toy is. Not because it’s Hitachi loud, which it isn’t at all. It’s just a lot louder than I anticipated. I had to turn on the TV before I was comfortable using this in my dorm, because my walls are quite thin.

The vibrations are very high-pitched and buzzy. My clit hates that kind of vibrations but my nipples enjoy them so I only use this on my breasts. Vibration strength is decent considering it’s powered by a single battery but it isn’t enough to make me finish. This is definitely a teaser vibe.

I wish this toy had more power. Evolved Novelties did good on a lot of things about this toy: It’s silicone, Waterproof, Decently cheap, Fits in a purse or pocket easily. But power is one of those things that I can’t give up. I don’t want another vibe that’s only good for nipples, and really, that’s the best use of this toy (for me).

Thanks again, Daily Sex Toys!
