Impuls'o silicone G-spot stimulator

G-spot vibrator by Shots media

Add resource

A mixed bag for this "impulse" buy.

Overall, I don’t feel as though this is a “bad” or seriously flawed toy; it just didn’t thrill me all that much or work with my personal preferences. It seems to be well made (aside from the bullet vibe, which was thoroughly disappointing), and silicone is always a plus. If you’ve had past luck with toys of this similar shape design, you may well want to try your luck with the Impuls-O.

Use

The Impuls-O is a vibrator that is billed on the box as a G-spot stimulator for vaginal use, but can also be used for anal play and P-spot stimulation as well. It can be used with or without the included bullet vibe; the bullet vibe features an O-ring which makes it waterproof.

Material / Texture

The Impuls-O is made of 100% silicone, which means that it is non-porous, phthalate-free, and body safe. This particular silicone is matte and smooth to the touch; the ring at the bottom of the toy is flexible, but is not squishy at all and comparable to the firmness of most of my Tantus toys. There are some ridges and “wave-like” bumps that add texture to the Impuls-O, but they’re probably too subtle to actually be felt and are likely intended to add to the aesthetic appeal of the toy rather than for function. The bullet is made of a hard material, which I presume is ABS plastic over metal. It is soft and matte to the touch.

Surprisingly, I detected a slight odor when I sniffed this toy, but I’ve noticed that this has been the case with some of my other silicone toys as well – in those cases, I’ve solved the problem by simply washing the toy with soap and water, and was subsequently unable to detect the offending smell again. The same was true for the Impuls-O. I’ve concluded that this is likely due to something left over on the toy from the manufacturing process, and isn’t actually from anything in the silicone itself.

    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

My initial impression was that the Impuls-O looks like a wavy, curved finger. As I mentioned in the “materials” section, these design features are probably aesthetic and not enough to add effect when the toy is in use. There are two slight seams that run the length of the toy on its front and back, but these are not noticeable during use or pronounced enough to cause discomfort or injury. The Impuls-O comes in a choice of five different colors, mostly in various brightly colored shades, but I chose to get mine in black.

The Impuls-O is of a relatively unassuming size, especially for beginners, and measures about 7” in length including the large ring at the bottom, with about 5” of insertable length. The head is narrow and there are two noticeable bulges further down the toy’s shaft: one slightly larger one, and another about the same width as the head. The larger bulge is still relatively small - about 1.25” in diameter and 4” in circumference - which makes it suitable for those who are new to anal or G-spot play. More advanced users would likely find it to be too small, but might appreciate the high-quality silicone.

The toy’s base features a rubber ring that serves as a safety handle and makes the Impuls-O fully safe for anal play as well as for vaginal use. There is a hole in the base for the bullet vibe, but bear in mind that much as is the case with the Tantus toys that I own that include a bullet, I’d recommend lubing the bullet before placing it in the hole as it can be frustratingly difficult to remove without doing so.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The bullet vibe included with the Impuls-O runs on three watch batteries, which are included in the packaging. A small insert inside the battery compartment tells you which way they are supposed to fit inside…emphasis on “supposed”. I followed the directions on the box, as limited as they are (not much save a small diagram that indicates how to unscrew the cap and insert the batteries), with no such luck.

I’m not sure whether I got a defective toy or if I’m just doing something wrong, but I had a negative experience with the bullet and could not get it to work properly. As I inserted the batteries into the compartment, I could feel the toy vibrating in random patterns as I inserted the batteries (BEFORE all three were in). This wasn’t enough to be functional, but more like a halfhearted “buzz” every second or so, which thoroughly confused me, as I seriously doubt if this is what was supposed to happen.

Once I had all of the batteries inserted, I pressed the on/off button at the base. The bullet vibrated at a steady pace, but I was not able to trigger the advertised “10 speeds” advertised. Repeated presses of the button did nothing - they neither triggered a different speed setting nor turned the bullet off. I could not shut the bullet off at all until I removed the batteries. Granted, the bullet works, but I’m screwed if I don’t like the one setting that it’s stuck on – and I don’t, since it’s weak for my personal preferences. This is one of the stranger experiences that I’ve had with a vibrator, and I can’t say that I’m pleased.
    • Hard to figure out
    • Not enough variety
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

The Impuls-O is made of 100% silicone, which means that it can be fully sterilized by boiling for three minutes, washing in a 10% bleach solution, or running through the dishwasher. I cleaned mine with simple soap and water, although if I end up using this toy anally I plan on doing so more thoroughly. Be sure to use only water-based lubes with the Impuls-O, as silicone-based ones could interact and destroy the surface of the toy. I would also recommend storing it away from other toys made of jelly or other inferior materials to keep them from interacting and to keep the toy as lint-free as possible since silicone toys tend to be lint magnets.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The Impuls’O comes in a white and pink box with a clear front panel that allows you to see the product inside. Labels on the front read “Shots Toys”, proclaim that the package contains a “silicone g-spot stimulator”, and that it is a “10-speed silicone vibrator”; therefore, although the packaging does not feature any models or the like, I would not call it discreet in any way. The box also features a small panel of “sample” material that allows you to feel the texture of the silicone that the toy is made of without opening the box.

The back contains pictures of the product in all of the different colors that it comes in, as well as more information about the toy printed in some seven languages. The packaging is simple cardboard and relatively flimsy, and there is further clamshell casing inside to hold the toy in place, so it’s probably not suitable for storage. A small booklet with pictures of other Shots Media products is included inside. The box also contains the three batteries that the bullet requires for use; they are embedded directly into the clamshell packaging and, although I had to press on their backs with some force in order to remove them, they probably could fall out and get lost if one were to be less than careful when opening the package.
    • Minimal
    • Not discreet

Experience

Personally, I found that this toy was enjoyable, but not spectacular. I did expect the sharply curved end to lend itself to shallow, jabbing thrusts (which it did), and I had success inserting the toy up to the first bulge and rubbing the tip against my G-spot. However, I felt that, when I inserted the toy further, I did not enjoy the way the end poked me – on deeper thrusts, it would poke against my cervix and feel uncomfortable. Also, I generally like textured/bulged toys, but I found that in order to feel the bulges, I had to insert the toy far enough to where the aforementioned end became an issue and detracted from my experience.

I’ve noticed that this is also the case with some of my other toys with similarly curved tips, so this is a matter of personal preference and your mileage will likely vary if you've had opposite experiences. I also tried using the toy with the bullet vibe, but the vibrations were weak and didn’t add much to the toy. I haven't tried doing this, but you'd likely be able to substitute this faulty bullet vibe for another one, as the included one is a standard size that you could easily find on Eden or elsewhere with another toy.

I definitely do like the fact that the large, prominent ring is easy to hold onto, even with lube-coated fingers, and this should be the case even for those with large hands. I haven’t tried using this toy anally yet, but feel that this would especially come in handy and is necessary for men wishing to use this for P-spot play. I gave it a few hard tugs and it didn’t budge: since it is rather thick, I can surmise that it shouldn’t break or otherwise fail with typical use. Overall, I feel as though the Impuls-O is not a “bad” toy per se (in terms of safety), and I plan on coming back to it in the future to see if it grows on me.
Follow-up commentary
I haven't really used this toy much since I reviewed it. Since my bullet that came with this toy was faulty to begin with, I had no issues with throwing it in the trash. I do appreciate that this toy is made of silicone, but even so, it generally stays in the bottom of the toy box and may or may not see more use.

    @Eri86: I no longer have the bullet that came with this toy, but the space perfectly fits an old Tantus bullet that came with my Echo when I bought it several years ago. That bullet measures 2" in length, 1.25" in circumference and 0.75" in diameter. If I remember correctly, it's the same size as the one that came with the toy. Hope this helped.
