There are so many ways to masturbate. And while I like using my hands, I also like to be able to use my vibrators and toys hands free. I’ve tried several different ones that allow you to rock them, and this month I was happy to receive the Power Play Dual Pleaser for free to review as part of Cal Exotics’ Sexpert Program.
The Power Play Dual Pleaser comes in a large clear clamshell with the product displayed through the front, and a paper insert visible through the back provides product information in several languages. The packagine is easy to open, and inside it are the pleaser, its attached remote, and a small paper with general instructions.
This vibrating toy is available in 3 colors: blue, purple, and pink. I received mine in pink, and it’s a rich raspberry color – closer to magenta than pink. Both the controller and Pleaser match in color. The Pleaser is made from smooth silicone, as is the control button, while the controller is made of ABS plastic covered in PU cote and the decor is ABS plastic with silver plating.
The Dual Pleaser is a toy that is meant to stimulate both internally and clitorally, and also to be used hands’free. The toy is 5” long from top to bottom overall. Its shaft is short, with 3 3/4” being insertable, and the shaft is 1 1/4” in diameter. The shaft is curved at the top, and the head is flexile over a rigid shaft which is covered with raised areas that give the Dual Pleaser a nice look. A bulge about midway down the shaft indicates where the motor is located.
The base is 3” long and about 1 1/8” wide at its widest; this piece has a small amount of give. The top side of the base, which reaches from the shaft to the clit, is lightly ringed for added texxture. The silicone the Pleaser is made of has just a bit of give, and isn’t sticky or tacky.
The toy is conected by a 24” power cord to the controller. The controller is large, at 5 3/4” long and almost 2” wide. Its back side is contoured to make the remote comfortable to hold. It has just one button on its front.
Why such a large remote, you might ask? Twist the remote open at its silver dividing line and remove the battery holder, and you’ll see why: the Dual Pleaser runs off of 4AAA batteries instead of the usual two. Battery direction is clearly labeled, and the battery holder is easy to remove and insert into the base. Twist the remote halves firmly back together, and the Dual Pleaser will be waterproof and ready to join you in the shower or tub.
To turn on the Dual Pleaser, press the button once. The Pleaser will start out on low, steady vibration. It has three speeds in all: low, medium, and high, and a fourth push will turn the Pleaser off. The vibrations are fairly strong and quite buzzy, concentrated in the shaft, and they are a bit loud, especially if the Pleaser is used hands-free and the vibrations transmit through a couch or chair. You’ll need a moderate amount of background sound to cover up your use of this one (it’s louder in the water).
This toy is easy to clean with antibacterial soap and water, a toy cleaner, or toy wipes. When dry, it can be stored in a toy bag or box. Waterbased-lubes are recommended, but if you prefer to use a silicone-based lube, do a spot test on the bottom of the base first.
So, Did It Work? The Dual Pleaser is a good size, and it’s comfortable to insert, as well as to sit on. The vibrations are decently strong in the shaft, although there’s only the three steady settings and no patterns to choose from. The size of the clit arm is great – it’s long enough to hit where I need it to.
Unfortunately, while the clit arm is the right size, it’s missing one thing: vibrations. The only bullet in the toy is in the middle of the shaft, and the vibrations don’t transmit well into the base. I need strong vibrations on my clit to orgasm, and they’re missing on this one for me, even on the highest vibration setting.
Thank you to Cal Exotics for sending me the Dual Pleaser for free to review! If you don’t need much in the way of vibrations on your clit, and prefer steady vibration internally, the Dual Pleaser may work for you.
