Okay, but you can buy better.

Have low standards? Love leopard print? Then you'll love the Tera Patrick leopard vibrator. Otherwise, check out some of the more cost-effective traditional vibrators, because this toy will bore you.

The Tera Patrick's massager|Tera Patrick's leopard massager arrived at my campus mailbox with perfect timing: I had just found out that my grandmother was going to die in a couple of days. I know that sounds awful, but if an orgasm can't make you feel better, what can?

Well, the Tera Patrick leopard vibrator can't, that's for sure. If anything, it just depressed me more when I realized I'd spent money on such a bland toy.

I suppose that, since this vibrator costs about as much as the Turbo Glider|Waterproof turbo glider blueberry by California Exotic, I expected similar quality. I was quite disappointed: I took the vibrator out of its packaging and its tacky leopard paint started to flake away. A little more flakes away every time I open or close the battery compartment, and at the risk of sounding paranoid, I'm afraid of some of it flaking off on to my lady parts! It also attests to the poor quality of this vibe that every time I take out the batteries, the little piece of gold metal running along the inside of the toy sticks to the batteries and/or gets yanked out of place. I have to bend it back in to place after each use, which is a little unnerving.

The Tera Patrick leopard vibrator is made from smooth, hard plastic and is comfortable for insertion with a bit of lube, if the idea of paint in your vagina doesn't freak you out too much. I wouldn't recommend it for anal play because it is relatively tubular in shape. It also lacks an off-putting scent and is very easy to clean, although it isn't waterproof, so just use a little toy cleaner.

I was also disappointed by this vibrator's vibrations and noise level. It can't match the aforementioned Turbo Glider on its highest levels in terms of power, but it gets just as loud. Considering the 2 C batteries this vibe requires, I wasn't super surprised by the noise level, but I was let down by the weakness of the vibrations compared to toys that use much less battery power. There's decent speed variation, though, and you can muffle the sound pretty well if you throw a pillow over the vibrator.

Unfortunately, the Tera Patrick leopard vibrator was another recent toy purchase that let me down. It's not a bad vibrator as far as traditional vibes go, and it's powerful enough to get most people off. However, there are other vibrators that cost just as little and do so much more, and with half the required battery power! It's sexy if you're in to leopard print, and it gets the job done, but I wish I'd spent my money on something else.
Experience
I was really, really disappointed with this toy from the get-go. 2 C batteries usually implies "power," but like I said in the main review, the Turbo Glider--which takes 2 AAs--is much more powerful. (I guess I've just been spoiled!)

After grumbling over the poor quality of the vibe (flaking paint, metal band inside toy popping in and out, etcetera), I added the 2 C batteries and went for a test drive. The low setting was great around the nipples and felt awesome on my labie, and I cranked it up to the middle settings for most of my masturbation. I really started to enjoy it after I stopped freaking out about the flaking paint, and the highest setting was just enough to get me off.

The second time I used this vibe I tried some insertion, and although the toy is too wide for my general enjoyment, it slid in easily with a bit of lube. If you like insertion with larger toys and don't mind the rigidity of hard plastic, this vibrator will probably please you just fine!

I like to give vibrators ample time to redeem themselves, and since the Tera Patrick is "meh" instead of "ick," I decided to keep it in my toy box for now. I won't be replacing this toy when it dies, however. That's also why I gave this vibrator 2 stars instead of 3: it's just not worth $15 when you can get much better toys for the same price.
Follow-up commentary
I was starting to warm up to this vibe, thanks to its classic shape and smooth plastic texture; I really enjoyed wrapping my outer labia around it and rubbing the toy up and down my vulva. It's been less than a month since I first bought this vibrator, however, and it's already starting to die: the motor has begun making very odd noises when I turn it on. Hence, I have pretty much retired this toy and now give it 1 star. If you want a cheap plastic traditional vibrator, pick something with a longer lifespan, like the turbo glider or the stormy slimline.

    Flaking paint? That's terrible! Sorry this toy didn't work out very well for you.
    Also, sorry about your grandmother and I wish you and your family well.

    Okay yeah, C batteries that can't match the Turbo Glider? Lame.

    The flaking paint really creeps me out! Also, thank you for your sympathies; luckily, I had other vibrators to make me feel better. =)

    I think that's part of what annoyed me about this toy. If it used smaller or equivalent batteries and wasn't as much of a powerhouse, I could understand...but you use 2 Cs and a vibrator that uses 2 AAs kicks your vibrating ass?!

    If the paint is flaking, cover the toy with a condom. Sorry about your Gma.
  • There are definitely better hard plastic vibes. Turbo glider is one, another popular one is the Clitoral Hummer.
