extremely useful review


The Masseur by California Exotics is a waterproof clitoral vibrator. It is ergonomically designed and extremely light weight. I think this toy is great for both beginners and advanced users. It is especially great to use in the shower. The vibrations of this vibrator can actually be appreciated on just about any body part. The wide range of vibrational strengths and patterns gives you options to find a combinations that will be pleasing wherever you put it. The Masseur can also be used with couples, but might be a little awkward during the missionary position due to it's shape. Best of all, this one is super quiet, so it can be used in shared living arrangements.

Material / Texture

According to the box, the Masseur is made of 'Premium Japanese Medical Grade Silicone'. My Masseur is the light pink and hot pink color combination (as opposed to the matte black and shiny black). The light pink portion on the bottom feels like silicone with a smooth slightly rubberized texture. The hot pink and light pink portion around the power and vibe portion feel like hard smooth plastic. There is absolutely no odor coming from this toy, either fresh from the package or after use. The texture is smooth all over; so someone who requires lots of ribs or bumps may not like this vibe as much. Like all silicone toys, the Masseur does tend to grab onto any lint or hair it may come in contact with, so be sure to wash it before and after use.
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The Masseur is 5 inches long and ranges from 1 to 2 inches in width. The design is extremely ergonomic. There are two bulbous ends; one for holding onto and the other for application and stimulation. On the top, the area with the buttons has a smooth sloped area that fits perfectly along your finger. The curve of the bottom allows this to curve perfectly along the pubic bone and down between your labia and nestle against your clit. It is very light weight and small enough to make it easy to conceal.

The biggest problem with the design of the Masseur is the placement of the buttons. There is a dedicated power button and, above that, a button to change the vibrational setting. When you press the power button, it lights up red to let you know the power is on, and then you press the vibration button to start the vibes. The buttons are placed almost exactly in the center of the top of the toy with the power button being right at the top of the curve there. This can lead to problems with accidentally turning the power off.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The operation of the Masseur is very simple. The battery compartment is on the back end and holds 2 AAA batteries. In order to open the battery compartment, which seems pretty difficult at first, all you have to do is press firmly down on the tab. Once you get the back off, you will see two places for the batteries surrounded in rubber to keep water out. Above the battery compartment, there are marks to indicate which way the batteries need to be inserted (+, -).

Once you have the battery compartment back on, just press the power button. A red light will come on to indicate that the power is on. To start the vibrations, press the button above the power button. There are seven different vibrations. The first three are steady vibrations, the first being low, the second medium and the third high. The fourth vibration starts out low and deep and climbs to high and fast. The fifth is a strong pulse with a half second pause between each pulse which is followed by the sixth setting that is a slightly faster pulse. The last vibration setting is 3 pulses followed by a 3 second buzz. You can cycle back through the vibrations (always in the same order) by pressing the vibration button. The vibrations can be felt through the whole toy but are focused in the tip of the Masseur. To turn it off, press the power button again.

This toy is waterproof. I tried it in the shower; it worked without any problems while under a steady stream of water. I also placed the Masseur under a couple inches of water and it continued to function flawlessly. I tested the Masseur again the next day after allowing it to dry and it still continues to work as it did right out of the box.
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

The care and maintenance for this toy are simple. This toy contains silicone, so silicone-based lube CANNOT be used with it. It is also best to keep any contact with other silicone toys as limited as possible. Water-based lubes can be used without problem. To clean this toy, you can use soap and water, a 10% bleach/90% water solution or a toy cleaning product. It is a waterproof toy; so as long as the battery compartment is securely closed, the entire toy can be submerged during cleaning. For storing this toy, I recommend separating it from other toys with either a handkerchief or toy sack. You could also store this in the box it came in, as it is small and has spot to nestle the toy in.

The Masseur came in a small rectangular box. The top comes off and reveals a bottom section with a hole in the center that is sized to fit the Masseur securely into. The toy itself was wrapped in some type of foam material. The outside of the box has a picture of the Masseur and has 'Couture Collection: Innovation, Luxury, Power, and Passion' written across the top. It also has a brief description of the 'Personal Massager's' features (7 functions, waterproof, etc.). The sides of the box list more of the features, directions and company information. The bottom of the box is actually more discreet with only writing on the back. So if you are using it for storage, it will keep this toy separate from other silicone toys and no one will see what it is unless they pick the box up.

Personal comments

One packaging improvement that could really take this Couture Collection vibrator to the next level would be the inclusion of a small satin bag. When I opened this, the vibrator was encased in an unappealing foam type material. It would be more visually appealing if it had been in a little bag which could also double for storage. I think any silicone toy would benefit from including a storage bag considering the attraction to lint and problems with interaction with other silicone products.


Unfortunately, I also experienced the same problems with the button placement while using this toy...but there is some good news! I only had problems with accidentally turning the Masseur off when I was using it while laying down. When I used the Masseur in the shower, I held it a little differently in order to apply it to my clit for stimulation. I found that I was able to hold onto the thicker end to control the movement of the toy without causing problems with the buttons. I really think that this may have been the intended use of the Masseur and the design purpose. But we all love a well rounded toy that can be used on dry ground as well as in water. I think that if the Masseur's power button required you to hold it down in order to turn it off and on that might make a significant improvement. Another improvement would be to switch the placement of the 2 buttons.

As far as my experience with the vibrations of this toy, I found that I preferred the medium steady vibration, the progressing (low deep to high fast) vibrations, and the slower steady pulse. This isn't the strongest vibration I've had in a toy, but it does pack a pretty good punch and can definitely get you there!
Follow-up commentary
Since my original review, I have taken the Masseur on the ultimate water test. Not just a little swim in the sink, but complete submersion in a nice hot tub. I held this toy all the way under the water, turned it on, and cycled through all the vibrational patterns. It worked and continues to work like a charm. And if it happens to slip out of your hand while your having some bath time fun? It floats! That's a sure sign of water tightness to me. If you keep the Masseur towards the center of the tub, the vibration sounds are muffled a little bit, but if you get close to the sides of the tub they amp like crazy. So if you are in a living situation that requires discretion, keep it near the middle!

The problem with button placement still exists and who wants to think about that while your in the moment? I really haven't had too many problems turning it off unexpectedly, but there is always the threat of doing so. I have better, stronger toys that I reach for more often, but I have found that I enjoy this paired with my Tanuts Vamp silicone dildo because my Vamp translates the vibrations so well for inner stimulation. And of course, this is still great in the shower, especially for avoiding those pesky buttons!

    Again, I agree. The button placement made this unusable for me. It was sad.
