A Multitalented Oyster(or Worm)Catcher

A great little remote controlled vibe with a good amount of power and 6 different vibration settings. The remote will allow you to have naughty in public fun if you have a partner to control it. Although, designed for women it can work on a male with some tweaking. The biggest drawback is a lack of a quick stop function on the remote, which could lead to some awkward situations. If you have other toy powered by bullet vibes, you can use this in them instead to give them more power/function.

extremely useful review
The word “miyakodori” means oystercatchers in Japanese (also a jab at rival, Button Toys, which makes a toy named oyster). I’m not in possession of an “oyster” (or in a relationship with anyone that will let me use their “oyster” for testing.) However, I’ve had luck with toys designed for women before, this is my attempt to turn the “oyster” catcher in to a “worm” catcher.

Materials
This toy is made of smooth plastic. The toy is not waterproofed, so no submerging it. To clean it wipe it with hot soapy water or scrub it with isoypropyl alcohol. Since the toy cannot be boiled use caution when sharing. It is compatible with all lubes.

Design and Dimensions
This toy has three parts: the control box, the bullet vibe, and a keychain remote control. The control box measures roughly 3” h x 2.25” w x .5” d. The front has two buttons “up” and “down” which switch between the toy’s six settings. The functions are: 1) Low 2) Medium 3) High 4) Rapid Pulsation 5) Pulsating pattern: two quick pulses followed by one long one. 6) Escalation. Also on the front is the battery case, which houses three AAA batteries (not included). On the top of the toy, is a slider switch that turns the toy on/off, and an LED light which dims and brightens depending on the setting. On the right is the port you plug the bullet into. Lastly, the back of the toy has a belt clip you can use. The control box weights a little under 2.5 ounces with batteries in.

The bullet itself is 3” across and 5/8” in diameter. The cord is 2 and half feet in length, and the vibe weighs one oz. The keychain remote is approximately 2” h x 1.5” w x .5” d. It has an on/off slider switch on its left side and an LED light to indicate when it’s on. It has a single button in the center to cycle through all the settings. On the back is the battery compartment, which takes one 12-volt battery (included). The remote also weighs an ounce.

The toy is available in both pink and black. (Consider your partner when selecting i.e. you may like pink, but your partner may not want something pink on their keychain.)

Pleasure and Use
The first way I use this toy is to upgrade vibrators that are powered via bullet vibes placed in the toy’s base. I own four such toys, after testing it in each of them; I’m unlikely to use their included bullet vibes anymore. Putting this vibe in the base instead provided more power and added pulsating and escalating functionally.

Using it as an external vibe, the bullet has good amount power and a nice variety of pre-programmed functions. It works fine using it by yourself in bed but the real fun is wearing it out in public, which although designed for female use can work on a male (see experience). I did test out the remote control’s range and it could turn the vibe on from across my house through several closed doors. The vibe is audible in a silent room, with the escalating and pulsating settings being the nosiest but it shouldn’t be a problem in a noisy place like a club. (Having your cell nearby will provide a cover story).

There are some ways of using this toy, which I couldn’t test but look forward to testing in the future. The first is certain butt plugs are bullet powered; being able to create a remote controlled vibrating butt plug by putting it in the base of one is an exciting prospect. Similarly, there are also cock rings that are bullet powered thus you could also make a remote controlled vibrating ring.

The toy has one major flaw, the lack of a “quick-stop” function on the remote. There is only one button on the controller and no way of knowing what setting the vibe is on. If they aren’t counting their button pushes, the controller has no way of knowing what setting the vibe is on. This can lead to some embarrassing (if potentially erotic) moments. I would’ve also liked two buttons on the controller so you could cycle the settings more easily.

A second flaw is that unlike their rival’s product, the Button Toy’s Oyster, you can’t buy replacement or secondary remotes (the rival product allows up to six remotes to control the same box; polys take note).

Packaging
The packaging is made of two pieces of plastic that snap apart easily. Inside you’ll find this toy, one 12-volt battery and a generic pamphlet about vibrators.

Overall, a great toy with many applications for solo or couple’s use. However, the lack of a quick-stop on the remote hurts its final rating.
Experience
It is a little tricky to get this to hit the right spot on a male. For it to work I had to tape it in place and wear some tight underwear (the cock ring idea above should solve this problem). However once I got it in the right spot it worked really well when I tested it walking around my university, the vibrations plus the thrill of doing some naughty like this in public where very arousing I was also able to reach climax although it took a while. I was testing it by myself but the potential for couples play is obvious.

    A note: I decided to do a little experiment and write this review in two ways with different formatting and wording. This version I wrote and second review in “lab report” format with a bunch of pictures on my blog: [http://namelesschaos.com/2009/12/review-mantric-miyakodori/]

    I would have liked to read a bit more about the strength of this. I feel like I still have no idea how strong it is because you used a blanket statement "the bullet has good amount power." Good for you? What about me? I need more concrete descriptions. From your review, I would assume it's stronger than any bullet powered by watch batteries but how deep are the vibes? Buzzy. throbbing, in the middle? Can you compare that depth to something else?

    I'm confused when you say there's no "quick stop" button, leading to potentially embarrassing moments. But isn't that what the slider on the battery pack is for?
