Last month, Cal Exotics announced Inspire, a new line of products created to support Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a non-profit organization. Proceeds from the Inspire line are being donated to support this group, and products in the Inspire line include wands, teasers, a dilator kit, breast massager, and kegel exercisers. In addition to the Vibrating Ultimate Wand, which I reviewed recently, I also received the Vibrating Remote Kegel Exerciser for free to review. Why exercise your kegels? Doing kegel exercises strengthens pelvic control, and they’re easy to do. They’re fun to do, too, with an exerciser.
The Vibrating Remote Kegel Exerciser from Cal Exotics comes in a clear plastic box, with the toy and remote both visible. The box sits inside a cardboard bottom box, which has product information on the sides and back. Inside the box are the egg with retrieval cord, its remote, a USB charging cord, R&TTE (European compliance) statement card, general instructions for Cal Exotics’ toys, and instructions for this toy’s use.
Like all products in the Inspire line, the Kegel Exerciser is a pretty, pale bubblegum pink. The insertable exerciser is covered with s smooth, soft silicone, and is waterproof, while the remote is ABS plastic with a PU cote.
The egg-shaped exerciser is about 7 1/2” long overall, including the cord (the body is about 3” long). The cord is silicone, and part of the body, so it’s easier to clean than other insertables. It’s somewhat stretchy, and easy to remove the exerciser with.
The egg itself is about 1 1/2” in diameter. The silicone has some give, and the tip of the toy is tapered, and also squishy. It’s very easy to insert (you’ll want to use a bit of water-based lubricant), and stays in place where you put it. It has a button towards the lower half of the egg, which must pressed to turn the exerciser on – not vibrating, but ready to receive signals from the remote. It can also be inserted and used without any vibration, or you can set the vibration speed without the remote by pressing and holding the button for 2 seconds, then pressing it to cycle through the functions (pressing for 2 seconds will turn it off). The exerciser is rechargeable, and the charging port is on the opposite side of the egg.
The remote is about 3” long and 1 1/2” wide, and it’s small and easy to hold. One of the coolest things about the remote is that it is rechargeable too! If there’s one thing I find annoying with remote-controlled toys, it’s that that remotes usually take an odd-sized battery, and it always dies at an inopportune time. The charging port is on the end, and the USB charging cable provided has 2 jacks, so both the remote and exerciser can be charged at the same time. This is awesome! It takes about 2 1/2 hours for a full charge, and then the exerciser will run for 30 minutes on high, and 1 1/2 hours on low.
The remote has 3 buttons on the front to control the exerciser. Once you’ve pressed the button on the egg and inserted it, you can turn it on by pressing the middle button and holding it for 2 seconds. The top and bottom buttons will cycle through the patterns – there are 10 in all, including steady vibration, pulsing patterns, and escalations – either forwards or backwards. This is great, as you can easily go back to the pattern you like if you pass it without having to go through all of them. You can increase the vibration speed by pressing and holding the top button (on the opposite end of the charging port), and decrease it by pressing and holding the bottom button. You can turn off the exerciser by pressing the middle button for 2 seconds. The remote has a range of about 16 feet.
The vibrations are moderately strong and more on the buzzy side. They’re very quiet, so you can use the exerciser pretty much anywhere with no one being the wiser.
This is easy to clean (warm water and antibacterial soap, or a toy cleaner), and also easy to store – it’s best to store in a toybag with the remote and charging cord.
So, Did It Work? This is a fun exerciser! I love vibrating eggs, and this one is quiet, decently strong, makes me want to squeeze my kegels, and has a great variety of functions. I like that the retrieval cord is part of the egg and silicone. The remote buttons are pretty cool – being able to cycle back and forth makes it easier to find the pattern I want to use. And what I really love is that the remote is rechargeable – and can be charged with the exerciser. No more digging for N or watch batteries when the remote dies.
