Can a girl have enough vibrators? I can’t. I love trying out new ones to see if I’ll stumble upon a new favorite. As part of the Cal Exotics Sexpert program, I get to try a new one about every month, and this month I received the Sweetheart Vibe Pleasure Kiss to review.
The Pleasure Kiss comes in an easy to open plastic case. The toy is visible through the front, and the back (on the insert) has a picture of the product as well as information on the features and use. Inside the case is the vibrator and a small sheet on general battery insertion.
This vibrator is a medium pink color, the shade of bubble gum. It’s accented with a matte silver band above and around the buttons. The insertable portion and the buttons are made out of TPR, while the base is made of plastic. The vibrator has no smell or taste, and is hypoallergenic and phthalates-free. The tip and shaft are matte and have a bit of drag when you run your finger down them. A faint seam runs up the sides, but it’s barely visible and can’t be felt by either your finger or when in use.
The Pleasure Kiss is 8” long, with about 4 1/2″ insertable. The tip is curved for g-spot stimulation. On the underside of the tip is a pad about 1 1/4″ tall and 1” wide, which is slightly indented and filled with raised, soft nubs for extra stimulation. The shaft features 4 rings that stand out from the shaft for added stimulation during thrusting. At its widest, the shaft is 1 1/2″ in diameter, so it’s not too thin to be effective. The shaft is mostly firm, but has just a bit of flex to it. The tip also flexes, but not a lot.
The plastic base matches the shade of the TPR and has a shine to it, although the silver accents are dull. On the front are two heart shaped buttons. The top one, which is upside down, is the on/off button, and has the standard power logo in its center. The bottom button has a lightning bolt and allows you to cycle through the vibration patterns. Both buttons are easy to push. The bottom of the base has a curve and a hole that goes in it. While you can’t stand the Pleasure Kiss up, you could thread a rope or cord through the bottom if you wanted to hang this.
The battery compartment is accessed by twisting the bottom of the base about 1/4 turn counterclockwise. Two AA batteries go in + side first. There’s a clear plastic “tube” inserted in the compartment, which makes the Pleasure Kiss quiet, but also really holds on to the batteries. They aren’t hard to insert, but you’ll have to give it a few good whacks to get the batteries to protrude from the bottom so you can pull them out. The compartment seals fairly tightly, and keeps water out fine in the shower, but when used in the tub it didn’t keep water from getting into the battery compartment. Even though the packaging states waterproof, it’s really a splashproof vibe.
The Pleasure Kiss has 8 patterns of vibration, and interestingly, none of them are steady. This is one of the few vibrators I’ve ever had that didn’t have a steady mode. The patterns are:
– reverberation from low to high
– faster reverberation from low to high
– even faster reverberation from low to high
– a shakier, deeper reverberation from low to high
– fast pulse
– longer fast pulse
– three fast pulses followed by 1 long pulse
– five fast pulses followed by 1 long pulse
The vibrations are fairly deep and throbby, and they are also decently strong.
One really cool feature with this vibrator is that it has a memory chip. Find the pattern you like, and hate to cycle through to find it? No problem. The Pleasure Kiss will restart on the pattern it was on when you shut it off.
Since it’s made of TPR and plastic the Pleasure Kiss is phthalates free, hypo-allergenic, and latex free, and also semi-porous. It’s easy to clean with antibacterial soap and warm water or your favorite toy cleaner. If cleaned right after use, the nubbies aren’t hard to clean at all, but if you wait for any length of time they will be more difficult, and you may want to use a soft bristled brush to clean around them. If you plan on sharing or want to make cleanup easier, a condom can be used. I wouldn’t recommend using this anally due to the lack of flared base combined with the short insertable length. Both silicone and water-based lubricants are safe to use.
So, Did It Work? I like this vibe. While I don’t notice the rings around the shaft, I did feel the nubs on the tip when I was using it, and they felt great when stimulating my g-spot. The Pleasure Kiss was easy to hang on to during use, and I didn’t have any problems pressing the buttons by mistake. This was long enough to hit my g-spot effectively.
I love that this has a memory feature! I hate having to cycle through patterns when I find the one I really like, and it’s great to be able to turn this vibe on and go with the pattern I enjoy the most. There are actually two patterns I like the best on this vibe, the 3 short 1 long pattern, and the 5 short 1 long pattern. Both of them really do the trick for me. I would have preferred this had a steady vibration pattern as well, however, as sometimes I need them steady. I did think the strength was decent, and I liked how the vibrations were more throbby than buzzy. I also liked how quiet this one was.
I wish this actually was waterproof, as I’d love to use this in the tub. Submerging it for just a short time got water in the battery compartment, and while I didn’t damage it I’m not going to be trying that again. While it works fine in the shower since the base isn’t submerged, it’s too awkward to use as a g-spot vibrator standing up. It can be used in the shower for clitoral stimulation, but I have stronger shower toys for that and this works better internally than externally for me.
What I really don’t like is how hard it is to get the batteries out! The bottom one comes out with just one whack over my hand, but the top one really seats inside the vibrator, and it takes several whacks to get it low enough to get out.
Overall, this is a fun g-spot vibrator, and you’ll like it if you enjoy moderately strong vibrations, throbby vibrations, and different patterns to choose from, and you don’t need a steady vibration setting to get you off.
