Be Blissful!The Couture Collection's Bliss by California Exotics is a wonderful rechargeable, wireless egg-shaped vibrator that has so many uses, it's impossible to list them all. With seven different functions that are quite powerful and a velvety feel, it is sure to please in any number of situations where a little fun is called for. Handing the remote over to your partner is sure to be the start of an evening of fun.
This would be great foreplay for couples, as one could use the bullet and the other could control the vibrations. This would also be good for solo play. As the bullet is sort of loud on its patterns and higher levels of vibration, it would only be good in loud settings, such as a concert or at a club, or where noise doesn't matter, such as at home or in the car.
The bullet is waterproof, but the remote is not sufficiently waterproof, so, bath play is possible, but do not submerge the remote. If you want to use it in a splash environment, it is suggested to put it in a plastic Ziploc baggy.
The PU-coat almost feels like velvet cote, but not quite. It has drag, but not excessive drag. There are two seams on the egg, but they are not felt during use. There is also a button on the top part of the toy, but that also is not felt during use.
The egg-part of the Bliss is, indeed, egg-shaped. It has a rounded, tapered tip that flares out, and then drops off. On the surface of the bullet is a CE symbol, a symbol indicating not to throw it in the garbage, an on-off button that is slightly raised (which also doubles as an LED indicator), and a corresponding small bit of text saying ON/OFF. The retrieval cord connects to the egg by a little nodule sort of thing. The egg is 2.5" long, from 'nodule' to tip and 1.5" in diameter (4.5" in circumference) at the widest point. The string measures in at 4.5" long, which was plenty long enough.
The remote piece of the Bliss is tiny, pocketable, and a rounded rectangular prism. It has two buttons and an LED light on it. The smaller button is a dedicated ON/OFF button, and the other, which looks vaguely like an L or or a 1 without the bottom line on it, scrolls through the patterns. The buttons are kind of rubbery-feeling, but aren't sticky. The buttons give a satisfying click when compressed, and the LED lights up. Lengthwise, the remote measures in at just over 1.25" in width, just over 2" long, and just over .5" in thickness. For batteries, it takes one 12V battery, which is provided. The text on the buttons seem to wear off really quickly. Flakes started coming off in the text for the first use, and now, they're barely readable.
The Charging Base
From above, the charging base is heart-shaped. To charge, the egg simply sits (with retrieval cord aiming upwards) in the little cradle. There is an LED indicator on this, as well, and Couture Collection runs along one side in silver. The base is kind of large, at about 2.5" wide, 3" long, and 2" high. The cord plugs into the back, into the small port. When the egg is in the cradle and charging, it lights up like a Christmas tree. It's super bright. So, if charge it at night and you like your room dark, plan on putting it in a drawer or closet, or covering it up.
Overall, this is a very well made, well thought out wireless bullet.
There are 7 modes.
1. Low, constant.
2. Medium, constant.
3. High, constant. The toy is really kind of high pitched at this point.
4. Long escalation/staircase, with a pause at high. There's about 8 levels on this one. It starts back at low after going all the way up.
5. Fast pulsation. 14 pulses in 5 seconds.
6. Even faster pulsation. 18 in 5 seconds.
7. Three shortish pulses followed by one long pulse. It's about like (_ _ _ ___) visually. They feel like they are different levels of vibration, but if they are, it's between medium and high.
The vibrations travel really well throughout the toy. The remote is said to work about 16 feet away, but after testing it out, up to 20 feet without any obstructions worked too. The egg itself is waterproof, but the remote seems suspect. If you are wanting to use it in a splash situation (like a shower) a Ziploc bag is suggested.
To turn off your Bliss, simply press the ON/OFF button on the remote, hold down the ON/OFF button on the egg for 4 seconds until it lights up.
Storage is a snap, too. You can simply display it in its little cup/charging port, or hide it away in a drawer. It does not attract lint whatsoever. Keep it away from lesser materials (and, better materials) to avoid ruining your Bliss!
The Bliss is compatible with water- and silicone-based lubricants. Oil based lubricant will corrode the material.
Lifting up the front panel (that has the text) of the tray, you find all of the other important things, such as the charging cord (which is the European plug; the Bliss comes with an attachment to put on the American plug), the 12V battery, and the instruction booklet and sheet. The booklet was not very helpful; it was only a generic booklet for all of Cal Exotics' toys. English is on page 7-12. The instruction sheet is actually very informative.
I really enjoyed using the Bliss, both as just something that sits in my vaginal canal for kegels, and for turning it on while doing ordinary things, like vacuuming and grocery shopping. I can't wait to give the remote to my partner for him to use on me.
But honestly, the best thing about this toy is it's rechargeable, and very simple to use. A lot of wireless eggs tend to be hit or miss, I've noticed. This one is definitely a hit.
Subjectively, this is worth all 5 stars.
Objectively, also a 5.
