Silicone flexi-power rod - sex toy by Cal Exotics - review by libbyv

Anal Fun For Anyone!

An anal vibrator you don't want to miss. If anal stimulation is of interest to you, this toy will take care of everything. With powerful vibrations, and generous length, this toy has it all. Not ideal for beginners, but maybe someone with a little experience at the back door. Add this to your toy collection, and you won't have a thing to complain about.
very powerful vibrations. enough length for newbies or pros
the tip could be more tapered, and a little less flexible. Makes insertion a little difficult

extremely useful review


Another great toy from California Exotics. This toy will not let you down.

Primarily used for anal stimulation, this toy can also be used for vaginal pleasure. The strong vibrating and pulsating modes can also bring excitement to other body parts, like the breasts, nipples, testicles, wherever you might like it.

Somewhat new to anal exploration, this toy, was a bit on the large (diameter) size for true beginners, but still allows enough insertable length for pros.

The beaded, flexible shaft adds additional stimulation when being pushed in and pulled out of the body in addition to the vibration modes.

Not very discreet in size or shape, it's not suggested, this toy be brought along on any trips. Additionally, depending on the vibration setting, it may be a bit loud if you have roommates.

Material / Texture

The insertable portion of the toy is TPR Silicone, that is somewhat tacky, and easily picks up dust and lint. It's important that you make sure the toy is clean before use.

The flexible shaft has a large tip, and 3 beads, which allow for added pleasure when the toy is being pushed in and pulled out. The flexibility allows the toy to have some play bending in different directions while inside.

The control panel is harder plastic, but seems fragile. Take care when handling the toy, because I worry it can break or crack easily if dropped.

This vibrator is hypo-allergenic, latex free, and phthalates free. Another added benefit is it does not carry a strong odor like a lot of silicone toys. In fact, this toy really doesn't have any odor at all.

Design / Shape / Size

The beaded shaft allows for great stimulation during insertion and when being removed. It also allows good stopping points, to become accustom when first used.

The diameter is a little large for beginners, and could use a more tapered tip.

The length is very generous, and is good for working your way up to larger toys.

Length: 11 1/2"
Insertable length: 8"
Circumference: 4"
Diameter: 1 1/4"

The flexibility of the shaft makes finding the prostate a little easier, although, because of the flex, you're not always guaranteed to hit it.

The large control pad at the base helps ensure this toy won't go missing while in use.

The size makes this toy very noticeable. If you're looking for something discreet, a plug might be a better option. Overall, I feel it's a good design for those looking to expand their toy collection, and add some fun to the bedroom.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibration in this toy is like no other toy we have ever had. Running on 3AA batteries, even on the lowest setting this toy will give you some excitement. In addition to the 3 vibrating settings, it also has 4 pulsating/vibrating pattern modes which can change things up and add some fun to the toy. The highest mode is almost too much for me to handle.

I'm not sure how the toy does on battery life. I'll be sure to update you with my findings after more use. The sound, depending on which mode the toy is set to can be a bit loud, so just be cautious when using with others home.

The control panel is very easy to use with only two buttons. The one on the right, allows you to scroll through the vibration and pulsating modes. The button on the left turns the toy off. It could not be easier to operate. Because the control panel is so large it's easy to hold without accidentally holding buttons if you find a setting you like.

    • Powerful
    • Strong patterns

Care and Maintenance

The toy is a TPR silicone that should be cleaned both before and after use, because the material very easily picks up lint and dust. Best to clean with warm water and mild soap. Be careful not to get the control panel wet, since this toy is not water proof.

It's advised to only use water based lubricants with this type of toy, which is also our preferred lubricant. Because we use it for anal penetration, we also always used condoms so the toys can be shared between us. Condoms should also be used since the toy can not be boiled to fully sanitize it.

The size is a bit large, so make sure you have storage space. We keep it in our night stand drawer, with all the other toys, but try to keep them separated, so there is not material reaction between the toys.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The clamshell package could not have been easier to open. With two small pops in the corner, this toy is out washed and ready for action in no time. Being nothing more than plastic and cardboard, the packaging is easily recyclable.
    • Recyclable


As I mentioned, we are somewhat new to anal exploration. We have used some smaller toys, but nothing to this extent. So starting out things were a bit awkward. I generally stimulate my husbands ass while he kneels over me. In this position, it allows me to play with his penis as well, and he can use a toy vibrator on me.

The length of this toy made it a bit awkward for insertion, he had to lean to one side, until I could get the tip all the way in. And because of the flexibility and the tightness of his ass, I had to use both hands to work it in. I think if the toy had more of a tapered head it would make things much easier for inserting.

Those are our biggest issues, which really aren't issues at all. Just takes some getting used to.
Follow-up commentary
The size is a bit awkward, for beginners, and the beaded shaft with bulbous bumps is a bit uncomfortable for sliding in and out. If your intent is to only leave it in, this may be ok for you, but my partner likes to feel toys sliding in and out, and he complained about discomfort very quickly. Not the best designed toy available
