Pirates Pendant Vibe ReviewWhile there are a lot of things about the Pirates Pendant that I didn’t like, there were still quite a few redeeming qualities that kept me from totally ruling it out and placing it in my “unapproved” list; it's easy to use, isn’t very loud, is body safe, easy to care for, rather powerful, has a unique design (a vibrator necklace – now that’s new!), it’s very discreet, is quite affordable and is great for clitoral stimulation or just for use during foreplay!
The pendant is small, discreet, easy to use, body safe and rather pretty, yet the aesthetics in person (i.e. the fact that it looks and feels cheap) are a bit of a turn off. I get that the product was meant to look like metal, and in pictures it achieves the appearance quite nicely, but when it’s in your hand it feels more like a coating of soft tinfoil than it does a hard metal, leaving me rather disappointed (part of why I’m torn).
Aside from the feel, the pendant has a skull and cross bones (to me they looked more like little alien heads) design embossed on it that are rather hard to make out unless you’re up close. If you like skulls and pirate themed costume jewelery you’ll like the design, if you don’t, you won't. I personally didn’t really care for it.
As for the vibrator/pendant, it’s a bit fatter than most other bullets and has a slightly pointed tip for more direct clitoral stimulation. That said, being that it measures 2 1/2″ in total length and 7/8″ in diameter, I found it to be rather big and bulky to wear as intended; like a necklace, yet a perfect size and design for stimulating yourself or your partner.
On that note, the chain it comes with is quite long, allowing you to put it over your head without having to undo it. While that is a definite bonus, for girls like me (who have larger breasts) I found the pendant sat rather awkwardly on my chest or often managed to get lost in my cleavage. I’m not sure if that’s something they intended, as it is meant to be a ‘sexy’ piece of jewelery after all, but for me it was just kind of annoying. Yet another reason why I’m torn.
In regard to the vibrations there are 5 in total; 2 speeds and 3 variable functions. Compared to other bullets it’s actually rather powerful, something that left me pleasantly surprised. Sure I’ve seen stronger, but as far as basic vibrating bullets go, this one takes the cake.
The packaging is clever and discreet, not to mention rather cute, with nothing on it (except for the word “vibe”) to hint at what it is. While it is a vibrator, if you picked it up in a store you’d most likely think it was some fun costume jewelry, not a sex toy. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if you see it on display among other Halloween costumes and accessories this year.
Care & Cleaning
When it comes to lubes, since it’s made of an ABS plastic (a mix between elastomer, rubber, and hard plastic making it durable and recyclable) you can use pretty much anything your heart desires.
As for cleaning, since it’s non porous, it’s not going to absorb any bacteria or fluids, however it does have little grooves where the design is embossed which could accumulate little dirt particles if left to sit (after use) without cleaning. I suggest you wipe it down with a damp cloth and either let it air dry or dry it with a towel. I know it says it’s splash proof, but that doesn’t mean you can safely run it under water without ruining it. Try to avoid the faucet when possible and just stick with a damp cloth or your favourite toy cleaner – after all, better safe than sorry.
Operating it is extremely easy; located on the top of the pendant is a push button control. To turn it on just press the button once, then to cycle through the speeds and functions press the button one more time for each setting or speed you’d like experience – like I said very simple.
If you follow my reviews you’ll know that I love products with a quick, one touch off design; unfortunately the Pirates Pendant does not have such a feature, leaving you to run through all the settings before it powers off. Not so great for those of you that are worried about getting caught in the moment.
