Testing...Is This Thing On?The Tickler Vibe was, honestly, disappointing. I would not recommend it to advanced users because of the lack of strength behind the vibrations. There really isn't that much to the vibrator at all. If you enjoy very little stimulation and more of the feel of a toy, then the Tickler Vibe is perfect for you.
Quiet, easy to store, discreet.
Lack of strength, slimy feeling material.
The Tickler Vibe is probably the best vibrator for the beginner who doesn't really depend on a lot of stimulation to orgasm. It is designed to stimulate the G-spot as well as the vaginal walls. The head of the vibrator fits snug inside of the vagina and presses nicely against the hidden spot of pleasure. The fringes surrounding the shaft of the vibrator serve to stimulate the walls of the vagina by gently tickling them while the vibrator is turned on. This toy is perfect for a quiet night alone or for foreplay leading into much heavier play. The vibrations are not very strong and are perfect for the beginner to explore with.
The material of the Tickler vibe has a rather strange feel. Upon opening the package I was immediately turning my nose up at the smell as well. It has a slightly stale rubbery smell upon first removing it from its packaging. After holding it for about a minute or so the material began to feel rather slimy and left my fingers feeling as if I had a residue on them. It was not a pleasant feel at all and added to the smell I was appalled. I did not find that the texture added any extra stimulation but rather hindered the vibrations from being harder than what they could have been. The texture is definitely more for beginners because it is soft and the vibrations are not overpowering. The texture added with the thickness of the sleeve over the vibrator itself prevents it from being a rather overwhelming stimulation.
Honestly, the design is fabulous just not executed well. The shape of the vibrator is so that it fits snug inside of the vagina and actually hits all the sensitive spots that you would want to stimulate. For me it did not vibrate hard enough and the material did not get along well with my body chemistry. The size of the Tickler Vibe is perfect and can be tucked away inside of a purse, inside of a night stand, or in a standard sized toy box. The size is nice for both beginners and advanced users, but I would recommend it to the beginners just because of the fact that it is a rather mellow vibrator. It is discreet and does not vibrate loudly at all. The thick sleeve over the actual vibrator portion helps to keep the noise to a minimum.
The Tickler Vibe is highly user friendly. The controls are located at the base of the vibrator and are activated by pushing a button. There are a few different vibration settings depending on if you prefer a steady or staggered pulse. The best feature is the easy to use controls and the worst would have to be the strength of the vibrations. I was dually impressed with how virtually quiet this vibrator is as opposed to others. Again, it is definitely more for foreplay if you require more stimulation during sex or play.
Cleaning the Tickler Vibe is easy. I recommend just washing it with antibacterial soap and warm water. The antibacterial soap leaves no residue and does not irritate the skin like some soaps have the capability to. I store mine in a toy bag with other toys, but it can be stored in a night stand, purse, toy box, or where you store most of your sex toys. It is not bulky to where you have to clear out a drawer or space just it to rest.
If you have an allergy to any sort of jelly toy, I would not recommend purchasing this vibrator. While the Tickler Vibe is not made of jelly, the material that it is made with caused me to have a reaction. Just proceed with caution. That may not be the case for everyone, but it happened to me.
Follow-up commentary 1 month after original review
I gave this vibrator one more shot and was still disappointed. I put a condom on over the material of the sleeve so that I could maybe use it a bit more than five seconds. Adding the condom actually stifled the vibrations a bit more and made playing with the Tickler vibe even more of a flop. Ah well, can't win them all, can we?
