College. Sexual Experimentation. Freedom. Wild Parties. This is the stuff sorority house living and college campuses are made for (besides studying, of course), and the time when many young women try using a vibrator for the very first time. Shane’s World, which started the reality style of adult videos, is synonymous with crazy college partying and sex, and the brand also contains sex toys marketed through Cal Exotics. This month, as part of the Cal Exotics Sexpert program, I received the Shane’s World Sorority Party Vibe to review.
The Party Vibe comes in a clamshell case that’s easy to open, with the vibrator visible through both the front and back. The colorful insert contains product information, and inside the case is the vibrator and a small sheet with battery insertion details.
This is a simple traditional vibrator. It’s pretty, in a bright magenta color with silver accent band at the bottom which indicates the battery compartment separation. Made of Velvet Cote (ABS plastic with a PU coating), it’s smooth and satiny to the touch without any drag and has no smell or taste. The Party Vibe is 7 1/2” long with about 6” insertable and only 1” wide. It has a tapered tip to make insertion easier, and the tip also works well when used for clitoral stimulation. Since it doesn’t have a flared base, the Party Vibe should never be used anally.
The base unscrews to access the battery compartment. The Party Vibe takes 2 AA batteries, which should be inserted + side down. An O-ring sits below the threads to seal the battery compartment and make this suitable to use in the shower or bath.
This vibrator is easy to operate. A magenta colored tab sits up over the metal and is easy to turn the vibrations up and down with. The vibrations are strongest in the tip, but can also be felt well all down the shaft. They are steady and go from low to fairly high, strong, and quite buzzy. They are also fairly loud, although using the Party Vibe under a blanket muffles the sound, and it wouldn’t be heard from behind a closed door.
The Party Vibe is easy to clean before and after use with antibacterial soap and warm water. It can be dried with a soft towel. No storage bag is provided. The manufacturer recommends using a water-based lubricant.
So, Did It Work? This isn’t a bad little vibrator. It’s pretty basic in design and function without any bells and whistles, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t work. While the vibrations I didn’t find overwhelmingly strong, I did like using this for clitoral stimulation as it was easy to hold on to and the firmness of the material allowed me to get pressure on my clit. Internally it was all right, although a bit on the small side for me. I did like the tab that adjusted the vibrations. This made it easier to change the vibration level, particularly when my fingers were covered with lube.
