BSatisfied by the BCuriousThe BCurious is a great rechargeable vibe designed with comfort, quality and ease of use in mind. It offers a variety of patterns and impressively strong vibrations, delivered with pinpoint accuracy to make them even more stimulating. It's also lovely and quiet, making it a great eco-friendly choice for clitoral stimulation. The fact that it's made of silicone and waterproof is just icing on the cake.
The one design flaw I'd say the BC has is the pink silicone swirl around the middle. As it's not one solid piece this leaves a crevice on either side of the swirl where it joins the body of the toy. Whilst it's pretty hard to see any gunk getting stuck in here, I ran a pin down one side and found stuff can actually accumulate in there - even if you do wash it well after use. It's not the end of the world, especially as that silicone part doesn't really come into contact with your skin, but something you might want to watch out for when you're cleaning up.
When it comes to assessing vibration strength and pitch, individual opinions vary a fair bit from toy to toy and the BC definitely seems to divide the masses! Personally, I think the BC packs a great punch for how quiet and small it is. On the highest steady setting it's comparable to about 3/4 of the power of a normal bullet, which is enhanced by a shape which facilitates pinpoint stimulation. The vibrations are fairly shallow or 'high pitched', not the rumbling, body shaking sort, but they're very smooth thanks to the rechargeable motor. For me, this is great, but for those looking for more diffuse, deeper vibrations I can understand that it wouldn't be as satisfying.
The main downside to the BC controls is that they don't lock and because it's rechargeable you can't just slip out the batteries to be sure it won't buzz on at an inopportune moment. However, I did a bit of experimenting myself and found it would be pretty difficult for it to turn on by accident, as you'd have to hit the power button, then the pattern changing button in the right sequence for any vibrations to start up. However, I've also had the problem of accidentally changing the function or turning the vibe off whilst using it, especially when laying down. This is because I tend to have my thumb on the end to direct things a bit better, rather than curling my hand around the top like most people would tend to do!
It comes with a really nice fleecy pouch, which feels softer and less cheap than the usual satin storage bags toys come with. It has a drawstring at the top and is thick enough to prevent your BC from getting bumped around too much in your toy box and stops it gathering lint. The bag doesn't shed either, so you don't have to worry about ending up with a woolly vibe when you pull it out again!
Charging is simple and painless, you just flip open the little silicone plug covering the charging point and pop in charging cord. The backlight will flash whilst it's charging and will switch to a solid blue light when it's finished, so you know when it's done juicing up! It's suggested that you charge your BC for two hours to receive two hours of play time and that seems about right from my experiences so far.
