Sometimes small vibrators are the way to go. They are easy to transport, often discreet, and can pack a punch where you need it. This month, as a Sexpert, I was excited to receive the Lil Teaser Dotty to review from Cal Exotics.
The Dotty comes in a small, clear plastic box with the product visible through the front. The back lists some of the toys features. Inside the box is the vibrator, a small instruction flyer, and 1 N battery so you can use Dotty right away.
This vibrator looks somewhat like a large tongue and is suitable for clitoral or vaginal use. It’s a lovely matte shade of lavender, with a darker purple base.
Dotty is 5” long overall, and can be inserted about 3” if you desire, and it ranges from about 5/8” wide at the tip to about 1” in diameter at the fullest part of its body. The difference in size between the body and the base isn’t enough to make Dotty safe for anal use unless you or your partner keeps a finger through the ring.
Dotty’s surface has a soft, velvety texture. No seam is visible anywhere. The top 1 1/4″ is extremely flexible, while the rest of the body is a little squishy, but firm and inflexible, since this is where the vibrating part is. The tip has two small nubs, or dots, under the curve.
The base consists of a cap with a ring. The ring has an opening of about 5/8”, which is large enough to slip your finger through to control Dotty during use. Twisting the base counterclockwise allows access to the battery compartment. Dotty uses 1 N battery, which is inserted + side down, and the battery direction is labeled inside the compartment. An O-ring sits at the bottom of the threads to make Dotty waterproof and safe to use in the shower or tub when the base is securely twisted closed.
Dotty doesn’t have an on/off button. Instead, twisting the base fully closed turns it on. Dotty only has 1 speed, a steady, moderate vibration. The vibration is strongest in the tip and the nubs, but can also be felt down the length of the toy.
Dotty is made of silicone, which is phthalates free and nonporous. It’s easy to clean with antibacterial soap and warm water, or you can use your favorite toy cleaner. Dotty should be patted dry, and stored with the battery removed. Only water-based lubricants should be used.
So, Does it Work? I like the design of this quite a bit, particularly the handle. I can slip my finger through and get greater control of Dotty without having to hold onto the vibrating body of the toy. The handle does transmit some vibration, but when gripped by my finger it’s barely noticeable.
I do wish Dotty had a few more vibration levels or was a bit more intense. For clitoral stimulation, the vibrations aren’t quite strong enough for me to orgasm, but they feel good and work well during foreplay to get me going. The nubs vibrate strongly, as does the tip, and I could get some good pinpoint stimulation with these. I also wish Dotty used a regular sized battery instead of an N battery. While the battery life is decent, a standard AAA is much easier to replace.
Internally, Dotty didn’t work for me. The tip is too flexible to get pressure on my g-spot, and without the g-spot stimulation it’s too thin and too short to realy work well for me.
The Dotty is waterproof, and I had no problems with any water getting in the battery compartment, either after a shower or a bath. It’s also fairly quiet, so with the TV or some music on, no one knew I was using it.
If you’re looking for a smaller vibe with moderate vibrations for clitoral use and don’t need vibration patterns, give Dotty a try! It may be just what you’re looking for.
