I love anal toys, but other than a tail or two, it’s been a while since I’ve tried a new one. I especially like vibrating ones, and so I was thrilled to receive the Silhouette S5 vibrating plug from Cal Exotics for free as part of their Sexpert program.
The Silhouette S5 comes in 3 colors: pink, red, and purple, and I received mine in purple. It comes in a gray and white box accented with the toy color. The toy is visible through the front of the box, and the box opens magnetically from both sides. Information about the toy is on the sides of the box. Inside, resting on foam, is the S5 and a USB charging cord. Also included in the box is a general instruction booklet for Cal Exotics battery toys and a sheet with information on the S5 as well as other toys in the Silhouette line.
This toy is made of silicone, and it’s smooth with very little drag. It’s not hard – the silicone has some give when you press on it. The S5 is 4” long overall, and it’s 1 ¼” wide at its widest. The neck narrows down to about ¾” in diameter, and then the toy flares out to a 2 ¼” diameter base. With the narrow neck, the S5 stays securely in place, and even though the base is wide, it can be worn under clothing if desired. It has a rounded tip for easier insertion, and is both flexible and comfortable to wear.
The S5 is USB rechargeable, and charges in about 2 ½ hours. Once fully charged, it will run for about 50 minutes on high, and up to 3 ½ hours on low.
This vibrator has two buttons for control, located on the underside of the base. The button closest to the inside will turn the S5 on, and will also turn it off. The button closest to the outside cycles through the S5’s functions. Pressing and holding the outside button will increase the vibration strength, and pressing and holding the inside button will decrease it. The functions can be changed without changing the vibration speed. The vibrations are easy to press during use.
The S5 always starts on the first function, and on low vibration. The functions are steady vibrations, fluttery pulses, long pulses, and long/short pulse patterns. The vibrations are rumbly, strong, and fairly quiet, and they travel well all through the toy.
There is also a locking feature, which is great for traveling. To unlock it, just press both buttons for 1-2 seconds. Both LED lights will come on. To lock it, press both buttons 1-2 seconds – the LED lights will go off. The S5 comes locked, and it automatically locks when it’s removed from the charger.
This anal vibrator is waterproof, and it’s also easy to clean with antibacterial soap and warm water. It can be stored in its box or in a toybag with its charger.
So, Did It Work? This is a great anal vibrator! It’s a good size for me, and I like how it feels when I have it inserted. Unlike some of the anal toys I have, it has some flex to it, making it comfortable to wear. I also like the button placement, as they’re easy to find and press.
Where this really excels is in the intensity and functions. I like that each pattern can be set from low to high. The patterns themselves are good – I like patterns better anally than straight vibrations – and I really like being able to adjust their strength from low to high during use. This can get me off by itself, without any other vibes, which makes it awesome.
