Tantus Rumble Wand Massager Review

Tantus Rumble Wand Massager

Tantus Rumble Wand Massager

The first Tantus-branded wand massager has hit the market! Tantus, known for their amazing silicone dildos and other sex toys, brings one of the lightest wand massagers to the market. Designed to be mid-range in power with controls that are easy to operate and a toy that’s easy to hold, the Tantus Rumble seeks to do what other wand massagers really don’t: a focus on usability instead of pure power. This silicone wand massager comes equipped with 7 speeds of vibration and is USB-rechargeable. The head’s width is 2.4″ in width, and the massager’s full height is 8.5″. The toy weighs in at 6.6 ounces.

The Tantus Rumble comes in a package that has the same attention to detail of most Tantus items. However, it’s in a nice, sturdy cardboard box. This box, unlike many Tantus boxes, can easily be used for storage, and it will hold up a-okay to having items stacked on top of it as well. Inside the box, there’s a foam liner with a perfect vibrator-sized hole for the toy. The packaging also comes with the charging cable as well as the instruction manual.

With a pretty streamlined design, this silicone wand massager is focused on providing pleasure and doing it well. The silicone head is relatively broad in surface area, and most of the vibrations stay pretty focused there. There’s still some vibrating in the handle, but it’s not terrible. The two button areas along the shaft of the toy are distinctly separated – ensuring you’ll never hit the wrong one during use. The toy itself is relatively easy to handle, but it does still seem to require an angle that points away form the body during use to get the entire flat head of the wand massager to lay flat against the body.

It is worth noting that this is a uniquely-shaped wand massager head. It does not look like a cloned rip-off of the Hitachi. That being said, it also means that most Hitachi-designed head covers will not work with the Tantus Rumble. Tantus, however, DOES create other customized attachments for the Tantus Rumble. Of course, they’re all made out of pure silicone – and one of them is even designed to add the Rumble’s vibrations to many of the Tantus dildos that offer optional-use bullet holes.

Don’t worry about being tethered to the wall with this one. The Tantus Rumble is entirely rechargeable. There’s an open port at the base of the wand massager, and you just plug in the required cord to any USB port to charge the toy. Be aware that this port has no way to “protect” it, so it’s basically an open port to water or other gunk, so take particular care to keep the base of the toy away from anything liquid-like. A charge will give the toy about 4.5 hours of vibration time, so this isn’t a wand massager that you have to babysit. Depending on how long you take, you’ll easily get a couple uses out of the toy before needing to recharge it.

I’m pretty impressed with the controls of the Tantus Rumble. Unlike other vibrators that require “holding down” buttons in order to turn on/off the toy or access various functions, all of the button control on the Tantus Rumble is a single press-button design. One small click, and it’ll turn on or change the intensity of the vibrations. The toy has a dedicated “on/off” button as well as dedicated “increase/decrease” buttons, so it makes it pretty easy to use.

So how are the vibrations? That’s always the first thing people want to know about wand massagers. They’re pretty good! They aren’t on-par with the power level of the Hitachi, but they’re noticeable stronger than most non-wand vibrator vibrations. I’d say they’re a bit more “buzzy” and surface-level than I was expecting (especially for a wand massager), but they aren’t weak, and they’re likely to be more-than-enough for most vibrator users. They probably won’t be quite enough if you’re used to the intensity of the Hitachi or other plug-in massagers.

Most of the vibrations the Rumble is equipped with are steady vibration patterns. Those tend to be my favorite, so no complaints here! However, it does have a few patterns that can be accessed if you continue to press “up” on the plus-side after hitting the highest intensity. This, however, can be a huge bummer if you’re enjoying the highest setting and don’t know it, and press “up” expecting more vibrations and get a pattern instead. Luckily, turning the toy off and then back on resets the vibrations to a medium intensity again.

The sound of the vibrations isn’t nearly as loud as other wand massagers either. At the loudest intensity, the vibrator can be heard in the same room – but it likely wouldn’t be heard outside of a closed door with any type of ambient noise going on. It gets a whole lot quieter when pressed firmly up against the skin. When held lightly against an area, it’s definitely noticeably louder.

Unlike many wand massagers, the Rumble’s vibration intensity doesn’t decrease when the head is bent at angles. It seems to keep the same intensity. You also can enjoy the same sensations when pressing the side of the head to the body as when pressing the top of the head. However, using the side of the head doesn’t offer as much surface area, so it may not pleasure as many places at once.

It’s also worth mentioning that the Tantus Rumble is noticeably lighter than most wand massager options. By a lot. If you’ve ever had wrist fatigue or have problems lifting a standard Hitachi magic wand because of the weight, you’ll love the Rumble. Even for most people, the lighter weight means you can easily hold onto the vibrator for long periods of time without feeling like your arm may fall off. For those with limited mobility, the longer handle means you’ll be more-likely to be able to get the Rumble in spots you want it. While you likely can’t operate all of the buttons while holding onto just the end of the toy, it does offer a whole lot more flexibility for using the vibrator if mobility has been an issue.

With the removable silicone head of the massager, the Rumble is one of the few (if not the only?) wand massager out there really designed for sterilization and perfect use between multiple partners. You don’t have to worry about covering the surface with a condom or other barrier. The head of the massager is entirely removable and made fully of silicone – so it can be boiled or water/bleach bathed to make this a suitable toy for those who love to play with multiple people. This would lend itself particularly well to poly couples and BDSM aficionados.

The Tantus Rumble is only splashproof – not waterproof. Being splashproof is still pretty impressive compared to most of the wand massagers out there. However, that does mean you’ll need to be a bit more careful when cleaning your newest wand massager. I’d recommend you pull off the removable silicone head for the best time cleaning your toy. It can be cleaned in the dishwasher, with a 10% bleach solution, or in boiling water once it’s off the massager (or just a gentle anti-bacterial soap!). The handle itself shouldn’t be placed anywhere near water. You’ll need to lightly wet down a washcloth and run it down the wand if you get anything on the wand itself.

Overall, the Tantus Rumble is going to be great for people who are tired of the unwieldy, annoying design of mainstream wand massagers (such as the Hitachi), but don’t require the pure power that the Hitachi puts out. The Tantus Rumble excels in all areas – except ridiculous amounts of power. It’s easier to use, clean, hold, control, and more. With vibrations are strong enough to be just fine for most users, but if you require the power that the Hitachi provides, this one may not be the best option for you. If you like the idea of stronger vibrations and are coming from most mainstream vibrators, however, I think you’ll find the Tantus Rumble to be a pleasant upgrade. Thanks to Tantus for providing this rechargeable wand massager for my Tantus Rumble review.

Master Series Sukshen 12 Piece Cupping System Review

June 22nd, 17   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   No Comments »

Master Series Sukshen 12 Piece Cupping System

Specifically designed for an all-you-can-need approach to trying erotic cupping in the bedroom, the Master Series SUKSHEN 12 Piece Cupping System is a set of plastic cups that uses the included hand pump to suction the cups to the skin. This particular set can be found at BoudoirNoir. The cups are made of ABS plastic and entirely see-through – though they tend to fog up with extended use in a single spot. The kit can be used without lubricant or with an added bit of lubricant to allow the cups to slide along the skin.

Master Series Sukshen 12 Piece Cupping System

Master Series Sukshen 12 Piece Cupping System

The entire BDSM cupping system comes packaged in a sturdy cardboard box. This box clearly displays exactly what’s inside of the box, and outside of taping over the design, there’s really no discreet way to store this box. However, the inside of this box has all of the various cups in perfectly-crafted styrofoam for the exact specs of each cup. The styrofoam tray is removable from the box if you wanted to store the tray elsewhere, but honestly, keeping the styrofoam is going to be the easiest way to keep your set looking good. The box itself holds up well to being stacked with other heavy items, so I’ve had no problem just keeping all the Cupping System in the original box. If you’re concerned about snoopers, though, you can pull out the styrofoam tray and store it in another box.

Master Series Sukshen 12 Piece Cupping System

The Master Series Sukshen 12 Piece Cupping System comes with basically everything you need to enjoy the activity of cupping. There are twelve cups of various sizes, the single hand pump, and the tubing that connects the hand pump to a single cup. The set includes two cups of each of these diameters: 0.625, 1, 1.25, 1.625, 2, and 2.25 inches. One of the 1.625″ diameter cups includes a curved base instead of the standard flat base that all of the rest of the cups have.

While the kit doesn’t come with any instructions, the backside of the packaging does provide a bit of basic information about how to use the 12 piece kinky cupping set. As you’d imagine, you must attach the hose to the individual cup you’d like to use. Once you attach the hose, you can press the cup firmly against the skin. Once you have the cup in place, use the hand pump to pump out the air from the cup. As you manually pump out the air, the cup will start to adhere to the skin and offer the suction that kinky cupping systems are known for. The hose can be unattached at any point after suction is achieved, and the cup will stay adhered to the system.

Master Series Sukshen 12 Piece Cupping System

As this system isn’t a luxury system, you can’t expect the cups to stay on indefinitely. Instead, as time goes on, without the hand pump to keep the pressure up, the cup’s vacuum will begin to loosen, and with enough time or movement, the cup will fall off the skin. For best results, it seems best to choose nice, soft, flat areas of the body (for example, going on the flat of the tummy seems to work better than trying along the hip bone) and asking your “victim” to remain in one place during your scene. The more moving around the body does, the more suction the cups seem to lose. Staying still and picking the right spots (which is mostly trial and error you’ll learn over time) seem to be the best ways to keep the cups in the right spots. If you’re hoping to keep a single cup at the perfect amount of suction, however, you’re best off keeping it connected to the pump (or regularly reconnecting it) and re-upping the suction when necessary.

Master Series Sukshen 12 Piece Cupping System

So how does it feel? Well, this 12 piece kinky cupping system allows you to experience cupping. As you’d imagine, cupping basically feels like an intense pulling sensation on the skin. With as much as BDSM is focused around trying and experiencing sensations, it makes sense that cupping would be a standard activity for kinksters too. Unlike non-sexual cupping systems, these cups come in various sizes for sexual uses around the body. Smaller cups can be used for the nipples or the clitoris while larger cups can be used in sensual areas like the inner thighs, the labia, or the butt. Feel free to experiment and figure out what works best for you – but as mentioned above, if you want suction to last after the pump is disconnected, you’ll want to keep that in mind.

We’ve been particularly fond of using the Master Series Sukshen 12 Piece Cupping System for massage-like purposes. It’s been fantastic on the back and fleshiest parts of the butt, and it seems to “stay” pretty well there as well. It’s fun to set up a couple cups and enjoy as I run my fingers down my partner’s back or use a feather to add more sensation to the skin around the cups. The two sensations partnered together seem to make fantastic foreplay – though the massage cups themselves offer more of a relaxing massage-like experience that can’t almost be *too* relaxing to want to move around for sexual purposes afterwards.

Master Series Sukshen 12 Piece Cupping System

Similar to the massage uses of a cupping set, you should be aware that any sort of intense suction in one spot can leave a red ring around the skin. This is entirely normal, and if anyone asks, you can always say it was from cupping – it’s a standard medicinal practice in some areas! However, you should be aware that the ring may appear, and as such, you may want to avoid any public areas if you’re concerned about someone seeing the marks. The marks don’t seem to happen with any sort of light, short suctioning. It’s leaving the cup in the same spot with intense pressure for a long time that seems to cause it.

As each cup is made entirely from plastic, it makes it pretty simple to clean up after you’re done. Unless you start using these cups near bodily fluids, they should be pretty easy to clean up and only require a bit of a wipe-down with warm water, soap, and a washcloth. Like mentioned before, I’d recommend storing this kinky cupping set in the original packaging as it keeps everything separate, safe, and from scratching up against each other. It’s actually a pretty good system!

Overall, the Master Series Sukshen 12 Piece Cupping System is an affordable and simple way for the “average person” to get into the pleasures and relaxation of cupping. The variety of the cups lends itself well to the erotic uses of the system while the larger cups can still be used for the “standard” massage play. While the cups don’t hold their suction perfectly, they work – and especially well on various parts of the body. This Master Series cupping kit is an easy and affordable way to bring the pleasures of cupping right into your own bedroom – no experience required. Thanks to BoudoirNoir for providing this BDSM cupping set for my Master Series Sukshen 12 Piece Cupping System review.

Kink.com Wet Works Ultimate Surrender Inflatable Wrestling Ring Review

Kink.com Wet Works Ultimate Surrender Inflatable Wrestling Ring Review

Whether you want to protect your floor during watersports, a Nuru massage, wet and messy play, or just want an easy “boundary” for any type of wrestling, the Kink Wet Works Ultimate Surrender Wrestling Ring is the simple solution. Made from thicker PVC material, this Wrestling Ring has inflatable edges that keep the “mess” inside the waterproof ring. Entirely black aside from the printed red Kink.com logo in the middle, this Nuru massage mat is 67″ in width with a length of almost 79″. The edges of the mat can be inflated for use and deflated for easy and discreet storage when not in use.

This Inflatable Wrestling Ring comes packaged in a thick, sturdy cardboard box. This box is of a decent weight, and it clearly displays what the product is and what it’s used for on the box. While you might be able to use the box for storage, only a few very-talented people will likely be able to get this ring to roll back up to its original size to fit into the box, so you’ll likely need to consider the box garbage after you take out the wrestling ring.

Kink.com Wet Works Ultimate Surrender Inflatable Wrestling Ring Review

The Wrestling Ring isn’t made of a sticky or “grabby” material. You know what I mean: like when you use a plastic tarp and you get sweaty from sex and the material “sticks” to your body and pulls off the ground. The Wrestling Ring doesn’t do that at all. It’s one of the things I love most about it. It has a thicker, PVC material that’s heavier and not-sticky. It doesn’t “cling” to the body – even while wet or sweaty. The slightly-textured surface of the PVC provides a bit of traction when everything is covered in lube too. It’s still not “stable” when entirely lubricated, but it’s certainly a lot easier to move on the Wrestling Ring than on hardwood floor.

Do be aware that the Wrestling Ring doesn’t actually have any “padding” in the floor of it. Many Wrestling mats, actually for wrestling, do. This, however, is just a thick sheet of PVC along the floor for waterproof ability.

Of course, you want the Wrestling Ring to be large enough to actually “use” as well. The ring is large enough for two people to comfortably lie down – and if you use the mat over carpet, it’s actually relatively comfortable for laying too. (Well, as comfortable as your carpet is!) If you’re going to play with multiple people, the mat is easily large enough for a big scene to go down. It’d easily encompass 5-8 people if everyone was standing up around a center point.

Setting up the Wrestling Ring isn’t too difficult. In fact, it’s really designed to be portable and discreet with its inflatable design. It can be folded entirely down into a small package – though, honestly, you’re going to be hard-pressed to get all of the air out so that it folds down as small as it came in its original box.

I’d highly recommend an air pump of some sort to inflate the edges of this wrestling ring. It includes a blow hole – like with inflatable pool toys – but the last thing most people want to be doing before sex is blowing up a giant pool toy. That being said, the Wrestling Ring only includes one of those blow holes – for the entire inflated edge of the toy. This, unsurprisingly, makes inflating the Ring a particularly slow-going process. Even with an air pump, it took the mat over 15 minutes to entirely inflate. That one little air pump has to be able to get air all the way to the other side of the mat, and it takes quite a bit of time. This would be frustrating to inflate by mouth – and honestly, considering most people would likely be playing with a partner anyway, it’s a bit frustrating that there aren’t two blowholes on the Ring.

When it comes to holding in liquids and other messes, that’s what the Wrestling Ring is designed to do, and it does a pretty darn good job of it. The thick PVC seems pretty sturdy, and while the ring doesn’t include any sort of “PVC repair kits”, you could likely get one online if necessary. Despite pouring a ton of water onto the surface of the mat to test its waterproof-ability, it didn’t leave a single bit of mess on the carpet – even as the water-level was creeping up the edges of the inflatable boundary. To be honest, though, most people will get no-where near that level of use, and it’s certainly more-than-enough for most Nuru massage or watersports purposes. There don’t seem to be any holes in the floor of the mat nor along the edges that allowed any of the liquid to escape. If you’re extremely-worried about where you’re placing the watersports mat, though, just make sure to do a quick check of the material to ensure you haven’t accidentally poked a hole anywhere.

The waterproof wrestling mat can also be used without inflating the spill-proof boundary if you’re not planning on having a huge mess. However, you’ll have to deal with the excess PVC material sitting stupid-like along the edges. If you’re only playing near the center, it’s not too much of an issue. If you’re hoping to roll around and use the mat to its entirely, you’ll likely want to inflate the edges just to make the edges less annoying. As a note, the Kink.com Wrestling Ring doesn’t have any particular sharp edges or painful spots when inflated, but when the edges aren’t inflated, the edges can be a bit rougher on the skin. Not sharp-rough, but not particularly comfortable.

Now, the big question is “Would this be better than a cheap tarp?” when it comes to cleaning up messes. It really matters what “mess” you’re dealing with. Only using a bit of chocolate syrup or whipped cream? You might be better off with a disposable tarp. If you’re going to play in a lot of liquids, though, or splash things around, the Wrestling Ring’s elevated edge is surprisingly awesome and takes any “overflow” messes down to near-zero. This is especially helpful for Nuru massages (tons of lube), very full watersports play (lots of liquid), and anything else where there may be a lot of liquid. It’s also a better option if you’re playing in a particularly sensitive area. If you’re playing on a tarp in the middle of hardwood floor, you may not care if you get a bit of overflow. If you’re playing with colored liquids/messes and in the middle of your brand new carpet? Yeah, the Wrestling Ring is a much better choice.

Cleaning up the wrestling ring after use can take a bit of time. I recommend leaving the border edges inflated as you clean it. It helps lift the excess material away from the crevices on the edge of the mat. Make sure you take your time cleaning around the edges if your mess happened to get that far into the crevices. Any type of cleanser should work fine, but if you only made a small mess, the material easily wipes up with towels or paper towels as well. Once you wipe up the spill, you can use anti-bacterial wipes to clean the surface for smaller messes. For a large mess like a Nuru massage or anything more solid (like foods, etc.), you’ll likely want to get in there with a washcloth and cleansing solution. Having a place to clean it outside can really help as it can be a mess to get it cleaned inside a bathroom or on the carpet.

When it comes to storage, you’ll likely want to keep it easily folded up somewhere. I’ve found that a small plastic storage container allows you to store the wrestling ring discreetly while keeping it in a small space and ensuring it doesn’t end up touching anything sharp. It’s a pretty sturdy material, though, so unless you put it near something sharp on purpose, it seems to hold its own pretty well.

Overall, while the Wrestling Ring could really use a different inflation method design, it’s otherwise amazing. The mat doesn’t stick to the skin, can be folded up for entire discretion, holds *all* sorts of messes really well, and feels durable enough to last a long time. My only complaint is that it’s hard to convince myself to spend the time beforehand to want to inflate the sides; a single added inflation blow-up hole would have likely fixed this. Otherwise, if you’re someone that enjoys messes and doesn’t want to ruin your carpet or furniture, you’re going to absolutely love the Wrestling Ring. Thanks to Eden’s Toy Store for providing this nuru massage mat for my Kink.com Ultimate Surrender Inflatable Wrestling Ring review.

Play While Hundreds of Miles Away: Vibease Vibrator Review

June 08th, 17   •   Posted by Mistress Kay   •   No Comments »
Vibease Vibrator

Vibease Vibrator

Looking for a small, portable clitoral vibrator that’s designed to work with a cell phone app for long-distance control? That’s the Vibease in a nutshell. Made of silicone with a small protruding area for pinpoint stimulation, this vibrator is rechargeable and entirely wireless. It’s water-resistant, and it can be synced with erotic audiobooks, controlled by a partner’s phone, or controlled by your own phone. For those times you don’t want your phone, the vibrator can also be controlled without use of the app.

Vibease Vibrator

Showing the curvature of the Vibease Vibrator

Entirely designed to be used in conjunction with your cell phone, the Vibease is compatible with iPhone and Android phones that support Bluetooth 4.0. All Samsung Galaxy models require at least Android Kitkat 4.4.2 to function. Be aware that you’ll need to download a (free!) app from your device’s corresponding app store.

The Vibease’s packaging is very simplistic, clean, and pretty. A sturdy pink and blue box is covered with a white slipcover that gives all of the basic functions of the vibrator. Inside the box, you’ll find a molded tray where the Vibease vibrator sits in addition to the instructions, charging cables, and a small, black drawstring pouch.

Vibease Vibrator

Everything included with the Vibease Vibrator

Vibease is one of the few wireless vibrators out there that can be controlled via your cell phone over long distances by a partner. There are only a few other options out there. This app is relatively feature-packed and offers a lot of different ways to listen to your music. There’s a “Quick Play” mode that allows you to control the toy right then. There are erotic audiobooks that you can listen to that have pre-programmed vibrational modes that the toy will vibrate to. There are “Ambient” noises such as “Beach” or “Airplane” built into the app. You can open these noises and then create (and enjoy the vibrations while creating) saveable profiles that will subsequently play when you open these ambient noise tracks again. Same with your own music collection. While the app doesn’t vibrate to a baseline of a track like the OhMiBod series will, it will allow you to create and save your playlist to your favorite songs to enjoy the exact same sensations next time you want to listen to the song. It also has a chatroom mode that allows your partner (or partners) to control the vibrations of your toy. Only one can be connected to the vibe at a time, but multiple people are allowed onto the contact list. I haven’t tested it yet, but this mode allows for use of the camera for videochatting as well.

Vibease Vibrator

Packaging for the Vibease Vibrator

It’s worth noting that, in the two months I’ve had the toy, the company has made multiple updates to the usability and use of the app – including a ton more audio books. (Including resolving a complaint I initially had about the Quick Play controls) The new audiobooks are free and paid options, so it seems like the company is quite dedicated to keeping up with the app and the toy.

Vibease Vibrator

Look of the app with the downloadable audiobook options

One of the biggest focuses of the Vibease’s wireless and cell phone compatibility is clearly its ability to sync effortlessly with erotic audiobooks available on the app. While they clearly want to make some money here via a “Credits” system that allows you to purchase lengthier audio-books, there’s a large selection of free books to enjoy as well. Some are actual audiobooks while others just seem to be like …stand-in phone sex conversations? Not a terrible thing, though. For example, one of them is a guy supposedly in the throws of masturbation and telling you all of the things he’d like to do with you while he moans and describes what he’s doing. Certainly not a bad thing to listen to.

Navigating within the app is pretty decent. It can be a bit confusing at first, but you’ll pick it up after finding the features the first time.

Vibease Vibrator

Quick play screen of the Vibease app

As far as the app goes, it’s okay. I’m not super in love with the Quick Play’s screen – which is how I usually use the Vibease. It’s a large black screen with “Speed” up the vertical axis and “Power” across the horizontal access. You can pick a point in-between all of those items, and a bunch of blue circles circle around the point and disappear, and the vibrator should respond accordingly. It’s relatively touchy, and what it basically does is operate the patterns and the power. Only the top-most touches will have steady vibration intensity – which is frustrating for someone like myself who doesn’t really like patterns. Touch a little underneath where that steady vibration invisible line is, and it’ll be a pattern. Luckily, you can drag on the screen, so that helps a bit. On a similar note, since all of the indicator marks disappear after you lift your finger off the screen, you have no idea where your vibrator’s power level is currently set. Not a huge deal if using it yourself, but when a partner can’t feel the vibrations, they don’t really know if their next move is going to increase or decrease the intensity or where you’re even at. I’d much rather see two separate settings for precise control instead of this dynamic control. I could pick various patterns and then use a scroll indicator for intensities while in that pattern. Win-win.

The dynamic control also makes it a bit difficult to communicate enjoyment levels to your partner. Where-as, if it was a precise control, I could say “I like Pattern 3 at about 75% power. That will get me off”. As it stands, I can say “I like a spot in the upper, right-hand quadrant”…and that leaves him/her with still guessing through 10+ settings.

Vibease Vibrator

Power buttons on the back of the Vibease Vibrator

On the positive side, the app does have a “Connectivity” icon that shows you how well the vibrator is responding and the power of the range – similar to the power of your wireless internet or cell phone reception bars.

I absolutely hate setting up most wireless items. In fact, time and time again, I’ve let new toys, tech or sexual, become “sitting on my desk unopened” because I’m just not looking forward to setting up the technology it requires. In this particular instance, I’m happy to report that the Vibease did not deserve my trepidation. I downloaded the app onto my Android phone. I had the vibrator charged and ready to go. I opened the app, made an account, and the app walked me through connecting the vibrator. It was a 3 minute process at most with absolutely no hiccups. On occasion, the app pushes out push notifications when new audiobooks are added to the Vibease store. Otherwise, it doesn’t seem to have any other notifications/affect on the phone. For review purposes, I use a Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and I’ve had no issues.

Most of the vibrator’s main app functions require or suggest hands-free use of the Vibease. The vibrator does not come with a harness or panty that easily makes that possible. However, the vibrator’s small and compact size means that it can be partnered with your favorite pair of panties to hold the toy in the “perfect” spot. If playing out in public or with a lot of movement, you might consider modifying a pair of panties by sewing a small pouch into the perfect spot for the vibrator. For at-home or laying-down use, a pair of particularly tight panties should keep the vibrator in the place you need it to stay just by pressing it against the body.

Vibease Vibrator

Another view of how small the Vibease Vibrator is

The vibrations are quite focused in that clitoral tip that protrudes from the toy. That’s a positive. The vibrator is also relatively magically-shaped. As-in, whomever made the Vibease definitely took time to study the curvature of the average vulva. With the “bulk” of the toy facing up towards the abdomen, I found that the toy fit absolutely perfectly against my body with the protruding clitoral piece in perfect place. My regular panties seemed to keep this in place against my body – even while out and walking. As mentioned before, the vibrations are definitely centered around the clitoral protrusion, but some of the vibrations can be felt along the rest of the vibrator as well.

Of course, the most important aspect of a vibrator is just how strong the vibrations are. And in the case of the Vibease, they’re not that strong. They’re not terrible by any means, but they’re definitely on the softer side of average. That being said, it’s not a vibrator that could get me to orgasm at any point – which is certainly frustrating if that’s what you’re going for. However, with all of the other strengths that the Vibease offers (the amazing body-curved design, the effortless app use, the very quiet noise level), I’ve found that Vibease offers a very niche use for public play and long-distance teasing for me. I’m not necessarily looking for a powerhouse of a vibrator while at a restaurant – I’m looking for a fun tease that doesn’t interfere with other patrons of the restaurant – and that’s exactly what the Vibease provides. While the vibrations can get a bit numbing if kept on the most-powerful setting for long amounts of time, as long as your controller varies up the sensation sometimes, it offers a very pleasurable sensation for some perfect foreplay – with your “finale” at some other point.

With that in mind, if you’re sensitive to vibrations, you may be able to orgasm as long as you have some very direct contact to your sensitive spots. Just “resting” the toy against the vulva doesn’t seem to press the vibrations firmly enough into the body to get to the point of orgasm. This means those who are okay with softer vibrations will likely be able to hand-hold the toy against themselves and get an orgasm from the Vibease.

And the noise level? The Vibease is every bit as quiet as it claims to be. It’s extremely hard to hear – even in a quiet room. If you’re out in public anywhere with any sort of basic noise (such as anyone else having a conversation or quiet shopping music or anything), you’ll be a-okay in terms of noise. It doesn’t make much of any.

Once you’ve gotten around to enjoying your Vibease, you’ll need to take some time to charge it back up to full power. Unlike many other remote-controlled toys, since the Vibease uses your cell phone as the remote, you only have to worry about the battery level of a single item instead of multiple items. The vibrator has a nice tiny port on the base of it that the vibrator’s charging cable slides into. It takes a noticeably-long 5 hours to fully charge the Vibease – but that 5 hours will give you 3 hours of playtime. Easily worth it if you just charge your Vibease overnight.

Make sure to take some time to take care of your vibrator. Keeping it clean is just as vital as enjoying some time with its vibrations. The Vibease is water resistant (not waterproof!), so it does afford you a bit of safety when cleaning the toy. Don’t dunk it under any water or put it under any running water, but you can use a wet washcloth with anti-bacterial soap to clean off its surface. As this internet-controlled vibrator is made from silicone, it’s best to use water-based lubricants with it. Silicone-based lubricants may damage the material, so make sure to do a small spot test if you want to use silicone with it. For storage, the toy comes with a small black drawstring bag you can use. It’s not my favorite method, but it’ll get the job done.

Overall, the Vibease offers a whole lot of teasing and erotic potential. I wouldn’t look towards the Vibease to be my sole “orgasmic” vibrator, but if it comes to enjoying a masturbation session with an audiobook, letting a partner control the vibrator from miles away, or having some fun in public, the Vibease excels particularly well. It connects and functions with the app without any hassle, and the shape of the Vibease is surprisingly well-focused on clitoral pleasure and tucks into the panties really nicely. It’s extremely quiet and discreet. The only thing to work around is the fact that the Vibease vibrations aren’t particularly powerful – which makes it fantastic for teasing, public use, and playful play with a partner. Thanks to Vibease for sending out the remote-controlled wireless vibrator for my Vibease review.
