Benjamin Bond -- Where's the appeal?

Splendwhore Splendwhore
Alright, I've been trying to understand. Trying so badly. But seriously, I still don't get it. Where's the appeal in the Benjamin Bond? What makes it so great? Why do you love yours (assuming you do)? Honestly, I can't get past the fact that it has a FACE on the tip of this particular vibrator. Seriously? How do you stick that thing on/in your sensitive bits without feeling wigged out? I'm looking for answers here. Please, enlighten me!

You know, this weirds me out, too! I've been wondering if I was the only person who didn't like the idea of using something with facial expressions on my naughty bits...

Well, I don't have one, but I want one because the ridges look amazing on it. The face doesn't bother me..things like that never really bother me.

I don't have one but I really do want one, especially after seeing Carrie Ann's video review (actually I think it was a comparison between Benjamin and Chester Cheeky). The super rumbliness, texture, silicone body, and recharability all make it really appealing to me. As for the face? Just more yummy texture in my book!

Yeah. I'm pretty much the same--the ridges look awesome, and the face doesn't really bother me. You don't see the face anyway, during use.

Hmm.. all good points I'll have to consider.

Alright, so if you did get one, what color would you want it in? That baby blue is kind of calling to me..

Tbh, I don't like either the blue or the black. I think it's really more the maroon base that is kinda bleh to me. Black goes with the maroon better than the blue does, but I like the blue if it were just one color.

So, my choice: black.

So am I. She was actually the one who spurred the creation of this thread! I kept hearing her proclaim her love for the Benjamin Bond everywhere she went, & I had to know.. What's so great about it?

LMAO me too. I actually scrolled down looking specifically for her comment. I'm not weirded out by the face (I actually think it's adorable) but I think the texture might be too much for me.

Benjamin is a bit of an ugly bastard.

Well, I like the blue one..but it doesn't go with the base at all, and I think the clashing would bother me, so I'd have to go for the black.

I have a fondness for whimsical vibes. Faces are cute and non threatening and, really, the last thing I'm thinking about when I'm using the toy but they amuse me when I'm not.

Benjamin Bond, for me, is my favorite because he's so versatile. His head can give pinpoint clit stim with the little point or nice, rumbly broader stimulation using his whole head. The ridges, used vaginally, are amazing if you like texture and, though they're noticeable and easily felt and may be too much for some, for me I like them because they don't catch on anything. They're not deep ridges, just multiple ridges. I love how long he holds a charge, love that I can leave him plugged in and not kill the battery, love the controls, love the easy on/off, love the strength. It's not hitachi strength, by any means, but it's a good, deep, strong vibration and is "just right" in frequency for my body.

And that is the thing that really makes me love him. Of all the vibes I've tried, Benjamin Bond has the type and pitch/frequency/depth/ whatever that feel best to me. Very similar to the new fun factory mini vibes spring and bubbles, only a wee bit deeper.

Also, Fun Factory silicone is my favorite so it's kind of a win/win/win/win/win thing.

I have the blue and I got the blue because black matte silicone, to me, gets funky looking. Like... I dunno... anything left on it - a drop of soap or even a water drop sometimes looks nasty, like you didn't wash it. I hate that. Lol. Plus, I also have the pool blue Gigolo and wanted another in that shade, since you don't see it often.

Alright, you've sold me. Now I want this, if only to satisfy my curiosity. I'm not really into high pitched, buzzy vibes. I like deeper, rumbly vibrations. From what I've heard you say, and from your review/video, it sounds like Benjamin may be just the guy for such stimulation. Definitely will be getting this one, though perhaps further off into the future, when 1 3/4 textured inches doesn't sound quite so intimidating. Thanks for replying!

I really want to get this some day. The look of it doesn't bother me at all, and I look forward to trying it for all the reasons Carrie gave.

I'm with ya. I have the Cheeky Chester and the Intensity. I love those. Not sure I can tackle the texture of the bond but I want to try.
