Posh Falls Short

Lookswise, this is a lovely vibrator. Unfortunately, the toy isn't strong enough and the 10 functions suffer some major design flaws. With all the vibrators on the market today, this one really can't compete.

Use

The Posh Petite Teaser 4 is suitable for a variety of uses. It can be used externally on areas such as the nipples, vaginal lips, penis, testicles, perineum, and anus. It is also suitable for insertion vaginally, for which it is specially curved to better stimulate the g-spot. To be used for anal insertion, an enhancer would have to be added to give it a flared base. I have attached a link for this product at the bottom of the page if you are interested.

Being a silicone toy, this will be a good choice for those who like to share with multiple partners. I will explain the benefits of this material more fully later. The size makes it easy enough to travel with, although it is not exactly what I had in mind when I heard petite. I was expected something very tiny and this is more average in size. In my opinion, it is more than could easily be stuffed into a pocket, but still small enough to be easily housed in a handbag. The Posh 4 is also waterproof. Its cap feels as though it secures very tightly to me, so I would feel comfortable using it in the shower or bathtub.

Material / Texture

The Posh Petite Teaser 4 is 100% pure silicone. This is a popular choice for toys, due to its perfect ten out of ten rating on the safety scale. It is a non-porous material that can be completely disinfected. Another positive attribute of silicone is that it does not have an unpleasant scent or taste. This vibrator doesn't really smell like anything unless you hold it right under your nose. I didn't detect any taste at all.

While many silicone toys have a great texture, this one in particular was surprisingly soft to me. It has a silky matte feel to it that lives up to the advertisement of "luxurious". There is just a little bit of give to the shaft when you squeeze it. Underneath the silicone, the core is rigid up until where it curves. The curved tip portion is more like a ball of silicone and while it is not completely pliable, it can be bent a little from side to side.




There is some texture placed right below the g-spot curve of the toy. The texture is placed diagonally and reminds me of the way folds would look in a silk sheet. The first row of diagonals form a "v" shape right under the head and then two longer diagonal waves underneath taper into the shaft. The ridge formed by the "v" is a bit more pronounced and more likely to be felt while the toy is in use. There is also a seam on this toy that runs alongside the entire toy on both sides, forming two vertical halves. The seam is easily seen and can be felt when handling the toy, but cannot be felt during use.

    • Light odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The Posh Petite Teaser 4 has the following measurements:
LENGTH: 6"
INSERTABLE LENGTH: 5"
DIAMETER: 1"
CIRCUMFERENCE: 4"
ANGLE OF CURVE: 15-20 degrees
WEIGHT: 4 oz (battery included)



This vibrator is best suited to beginners. I say this because it has a slim size and weaker vibrations. This vibrator is not one to give you that "filled up" feeling. Also, if you need a toy with a bit of power to be able to climax, then keep looking. This toy is more of an introduction to vibrators than the main course.

The Posh 4 is not particulaly discreet in my opinion. While it is not a realistic copy of a penis, it is certainly still phallic shaped. I don't think there are many people out there who won't recognize this as a vibrator as soon as they see it. It's sized well for storage and for travel, but probably not one you'll pack in a carry on bag if you're taking a flight, since it is so recognizable during security checks.
    • Beginner
    • Ergonomic
    • Whimsical / artistic

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Posh Petite Teaser 4 runs on one AAA battery. The battery compartment is accessible once the base has been unscrewed. The cap style base is able to be taken off and then screwed back on very easily. Once the battery is in place, there is a single button on the bottom of the unit that controls it. The first press on the button will power it on. The button's perimeter will light up while in use.




The vibrations on this toy can be felt all throughout it, but are strongest at the tip. The strength of this toy ranges from 1-3 vrooms depending on the function. The noise level ranges from 1-2 bees. Successive presses of the button will cycle through the toy's ten functions. To turn the toy off, the user must hold the button down for three seconds. The toy does not turn off at the end of the cycle. To get the battery back out, the vibrator must be angled down and lightly tapped on its side.

This is MY interpretation of the functions:
#1: High steady vibration
#2: Medium steady vibration
#3: Low steady vibration
#4: Escalating pulses
#5: Low, quick pulsing
#6: High, long pulsing
#7: Medium, quick pulsing
#8: Medium, long pulsing
#9: High, long pulsing
#10: Low, quick pulsing

Here is the California Exotics breakdown (included with the instructions):



DESIGN FLAW #1: The functions are so similiar I can't really tell them apart. I had to go through them several times just to try and describe the differences. It's about as clear as mud.

DESIGN FLAW #2: The steady vibration functions actually go from strongest to weakest. So, it is not possible to use it on steady vibrations and increase the power as you near climax. For example, if you begin at the weakest steady vibration level, you must hit the button 9 times and go through every other function to get to the middle strength steady vibrations, then hit the button 9 times again to get to the strongest steady vibration function.

DESIGN FLAW #3: Whichever function is on when the toy is shut off, the following function will begin when the toy is turned back on. For example, if you turn it off during function #2, when you turn it on again, it will begin with function #3. Therefore, you must cycle through all the functions to get back to your favorite one again.
    • Multiple settings
    • Not enough variety
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

As with all silicone toys, the Posh 4 should be used with water based lubricants. Any silicone lubricants will ruin the material on the toy. This toy can be cleaned with an antibacterial hand soap/toy soap and warm water. Since it is waterproof, it may be completely submerged during cleaning as long as the cap is screwed on tightly.

To store this toy, keep it in a cool place out of direct sunlight. Also be sure to store it in a manner so that it is not touching other silicone items, as a chemical interaction can occur. This can easily be done by keeping it in a plastic baggie. The box with which it comes is sturdy enough for storage if you have the extra room for it, but it is not so aesthetically pleasing that I personally chose to keep it. Happily, the box is recyclable.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The Posh Petite Teaser 4 arrives sealed in a plastic bag and placed inside a cardboard box. Although the box is not specifically labeled as a "vibrator" I think most people will still know immediately what it is. The front of the box has the name and a large picture. The sides and back of the box have some key product highlights. You will also receive a small folded paper with instructions. These instructions will show the direction of the battery and tips to avoid battery leakage. A tiny little chart of the functions is also included, which you practically need a magnifying glass for. Why this is not valued higher than how to insert a battery I am not sure.



    • Minimal
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable

Experience

This toy was a disapointment to me. I'll admit, the curve of the toy did stimulate my g-spot with very little need for angling on my part. That part was fine. However, I was frustrated by the toy being so darn weak. In short, it will get you where you want to go, but it's going to take a while and don't expect to be setting off any fireworks along the way. It was more of a job to reach climax than an enjoyment. Usually, this is where utlizing the toys many functions would come into play. However, the pulses were jumbled and repetitive and none of the functions were ordered by increasing strength. Why pay for 10 functions that you can't get use out of? In fact, I ended up just using the strongest steady vibrating mode. I think this vibrator will quickly fall to the bottom of my toy box.
