Pleasurists adult product review round-up

Good Vibrations was kind enough to let me review the G-Swirl by Good Vibrations. I was extremely excited about this toy. Fun Factory created a vibrator for Good Vibrations that can be used for G-spot, P-spot or clitoral stimulation. The flared base on the bottom of the shaft makes it safe to use anally. The G-Swirl has a plastic base and silicone shaft. It looked amazing.

I got out my instructions and batteries to insert them into the device and realized I had a problem. I tried everything to get into the toy. I pushed, I pulled, I twisted, I freaking karate chopped this bad boy and nothing would open it. The instructions just said insert them into the device, easier said than done. I spent a couple weeks working on it and still had no luck. I would spend time trying to figure it out and then curse the day it was created and walk away. I contemplated throwing it out the window. I was about to just give up and ask a guy friend to figure out where the batteries went in my new vibrator. Finally, I found a blog where Nancy Drew or some other sleuth figured out the mysterious battery compartment. There is a place for your fingers on the sides of the base, you have to squeeze this very hard in until it clicks, and then the bottom pops off. Then you can insert 2 AA batteries. Even after I discovered this secret, I have still had a difficult time opening it. You should remove your batteries in between uses, which means you have to regularly tackle the beast.

I finally got batteries into the G-Swirl and it would have been a pretty great toy, if it hadn’t been so complicated to insert the batteries. It has multiple speeds, with the lowest being a great starting level to someone new to vibrators and the highest is a decently high vibration. It is controlled by a round dial wheel, it’s placement on the vibrator makes it very easy to control. After you get to the highest level there is a small click, but I get too excited sometimes and go too far, accidently turning it off. The vibrator has an insertable length of 4 inches and a diameter of 1 ½ inches. The ridged silicone shaft has a curved end that provided plenty of G-spot and P-spot stimulation. The clitoral ridge, doesn’t work with my anatomy, but I’m sure it’d be great for other women.

The G-Swirl is splash resistant. It is safe to wash it with soap and water or with toy cleaner, but do not submerge it under water. Since it is a silicone vibrator, avoid silicone lubricants. I recommend using water based lube. The vibrator comes with a sample lube from Fun Factory.

I don’t recommend this toy to first time toy buyers. It’s extremely frustrating to get into and if you don’t know how great sex toys are, I fear you would just give up on them forever. I wouldn’t blame you either. I’m not even sure how much I can recommend it all. It’s a great toy, but the design of the toy is severely flawed. If the battery compartment was altered or there were instructions that carefully explained how to install the batteries, I wouldn’t be so hesitant to recommend it. However, if you are reading this you now know how to open it, but my experience was more frustrating than pleasurable.

Disclosure Statement: This toy was provided free of charge by Good Vibrations in exchange for an honest review.
