Blueberries: A Dietary Staple for the Toybox

The Blueberry offers enough variety of purpose to serve as a toybox staple in collections large and small. It's durable and waterproof, and since it runs on batteries, it's a great standby for those times when you've forgotten to charge your luxury vibe. It's powerful enough to please most, and the interesting shape makes it a solid choice for those looking to learn more about their own personal preferences.

Use

The California Exotics Waterproof Turbo Glider Blueberry Bliss, henceforth referred to as the Blueberry, is a hard plastic traditional vibrator primarily meant for internal vaginal stimulation. It also works quite well as a clitoral vibrator, and does a nice job as a back and shoulder massager. Since it lacks a flared base, it is a not a suitably safe toy for anal use.

The Blueberry is waterproof, which adds to its versatility, while the price range and whimsical appearance make it a good choice as a playfully naughty party favor, and one likely to be appreciated for years to come.

Material / Texture

The Blueberry is made of hard plastic with a smooth, shiny finish that requires minimal lube, if any, and that makes the toy an ideal candidate for use in the bath or shower. It's free of any odors, and since plastic is a non-porous and phthalate-free material that works safely with any lubricant, be it water based, silicone, or oil, it's a good choice for those just beginning to explore toys.

Design / Shape / Size

My pasta measuring device tells me that the Blueberry is just under an inch and a quarter at its very widest point, which positions it squarely on the large side of beginner territory. It won't please the size queens through sheer girth alone, nor will it intimidate the average user. Those looking to experience penetration for the first time could find it either daunting or pleasantly filling -- it really depends on one's individual body. If it does prove too large at first, it makes a good strong clitoral vibrator in the meantime, and should prove eventually useful internally, so all is not lost.

The Blueberry's shape is what makes it a favorite to many, myself included, but also the enemy to some. All bodies are not alike. However, the price range makes it the ideal candidate for testing one's enjoyment, or lack thereof, of rigid toys with bloopy texture.

The rigid, straight shape of the toy does not lend itself to easy or direct g-spot stimulation for most users, although the select few who prefer the drive-by sensations of a thrusting, textured toy for that type of stimulation will be pleased.

On the matter of discretion, anyone of moderate worldliness will recognize the Blueberry as a sex toy, albeit a fairly conservative one. The lack of a realistic phallic design will keep your most stodgy maiden aunt blissfully unaware of its true nature, while your secretly kinky cousin smiles sweetly to herself at your endearing innocence. Awkward conversations can be waved away with the classic shoulder massager cover story, and it's not even a lie, since it's a good choice for that task, and the toy stores easily anywhere, so it should prove easy to hide.

As for travel, TSA will know it's a vibrator, they've probably seen this exact model thousands of times, but if you remember to pack it sans batteries, it won't go off in your luggage, it's not particularly fragile, and it's easily replaced if lost.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Blueberry's smooth plastic transmits vibration very well, but it also transmits noise, which means the Blueberry is not a silent toy, but it's not obnoxiously loud either. Those concerned about privacy issues can easily disguise the sound by playing the stereo, and unless one plans to use it in a deadly silent building with excellent acoustics and a booming population of hyper-vigilant prudes, it's not likely to be noticed through a closed door. So basically, the Blueberry is a poor choice for the convent, but it should -- and probably quite frequently does -- fair well in the average college dorm.

As you can see from the pictures on the toy's main page, the Blueberry houses its motor near it's tip, which is a good choice for delivering vibrations on target. It's a fairly strong motor, with its wide range of varying speeds controlled by a simple dial at the toy's base, and it's likely to please a variety of users. The vibrations are neither thuddy nor buzzy, but of a fairly average depth.

The shape of the tip is a good balance between the pinpoint stimulation of the pointiest bullet vibes, as for example the RO-120 mm bullet from Rocks Off, and those toys with a broader tip that disperse vibrations to widely for many. As the tip is essentially the same shape as that of the Jimmyjane Little Chroma, my very favorite clitoral vibrator, I personally find it ideal. It's also capable of more power than that particular luxury vibe, although the two differ in pitch. While it would be inaccurate to describe the Blueberry's vibrations as sharp, they are of a higher pitch than that of the Little Chroma. At the same time, they are of a significantly lower pitch than that of buzzy vibes like the Evolved Novelties Beaver Shot bullet.

For shower use, the Blueberry passed the water test with flying colors, and kept on running even when fully submerged for as long as I was willing to stand in the bathroom watching it sit in the sink, which was longer than my impatient nature might have expected. Fortunately the bathroom mirror needed cleaning.

Care and Maintenance

Plastic can be used with any lubricant, be it water based, silicone based, or oil based, and is easily cleaned with antibacterial soap and warm water. It can also be safely wiped down with isopropyl alcohol or toy cleaner. Never boil or otherwise heat a toy with a motor. If you share this toy, use a condom or toy cover, as plastic can never be fully sterilized.

I store my Blueberry loose in a Sugar Sak, along with all of the other ABS plastic in my collection. Since it doesn't lend itself to lint collection or threaten to melt its companions with offgassing chemicals, it does not require a dedicated separator bag, although it certainly could be stored in one for purposes of discretion.

Always store your vibrator sans batteries, to extend battery life and guard against corrosion during periods of disuse. However, the consequences aren't particularly dire should you choose to ignore this advice and keep your toy prepared for use at a moment's notice. The Blueberry seems to work equally well with both disposable and rechargeable batteries, although there could be some variance between brands which I have not personally detected, as I rarely use the strongest setting on this toy.

Packaging

You can see the packaging for this toy on the main product page. It's a simple clear plastic bag with the product name printed in black text. Stash it inside a snack food package for discreet disposal.

    I had to read the line about the "pasta measuring device" a couple of times before I understood what you were talking about. Good alternative use of that device. Your points are well thought out here. Thanks for the great review.
