Probe away!

Having at least one inflatable toy in your collection can offer some interesting escapades, so why not make it one that vibrates too? Many good ideas come together to make the Cal Exotics Inflatable Probe a fun and interesting toy.

extremely useful review


There are lots of probes on the market, lots of vibrators, and even a few inflatable toys. But very few of those toys do all three things which makes the Cal Exotics Inflatable Latex Probe quite a versatile little item to have in the toy box. The tough latex cover on the toy can handle being inflated up to four inches across, quite a size for most people. The real pleasure comes from being able to change the size after it is already inserted, pumping it up before you put it in could be a little tricky. This probe is equally useful for anal and vaginal play so long as you clean it between uses. While we are talking about cleaning, I know some people like to put a condom over their toys to keep them clean and minimize the cleanup session afterwards. I do not recommend doing that with this toy since the size of the head can change so much that it will surely break a condom or cause friction issues that make the quick cleanup negligible.

Material / Texture

You might be surprised at first touch at how firm this toy is. For something that changes size so drastically you would think it would be pretty soft and spongy but that is not the case at all. The probe section is so hard I thought it was made of solid plastic for a second. I can only guess why they made the probe section out of such a hard material but I can certainly say having a hard material is an advantage for you. The harder and stiffer the body material of a toy, the more effectively it transfers vibrations up its length. That means more buzz at lower settings, whoop dee doo. The probe is coated in a sheath of latex rubber and the top section can inflate to change its size. By squeezing a bulb at the end of an air hose you can pump air into the top of the probe until you have something like a black party balloon at the end of your probe. The latex smells, tastes, and feels just like an overgrown condom though I would imagine it is more durable than your standard Trojan. Unlike some Trojans this toy does not come with any lubrication so until you apply some, you will find the outer covering to be a little on the frictiony side.

This is a great choice for users of all experience levels since the beginners can use it as-is, the intermediate users can put just a little air in there, and the advanced users can really pump that sucker up till their eyes roll back in their head. You are probably going to want to do your inflating AFTER you insert the probe, just FYI.

Design / Shape / Size

The probe itself is 5 inches long and the entire thing is insertable. Despite being advertised as an anal toy, there is no flared base to keep it under control and this may worry some users. Well worry not, the air hose and power cord attached to the bottom of the toy do a fine job of keeping the probe from getting away. There should be no danger of losing this toy inside you.

The shape of the probe is like a squat dildo. It is fairly wide at the base, narrows briefly before widening again in the middle, then narrows again before flaring out to a large, bulbous head. The shape provides some sensation on its own though the smooth latex texture doesn't feel like much. The probe is very hard under the latex sheath, its stiffness and stability cause it to transfer vibrations up and down its shaft very effectively.

This is a fairly small toy and I feel it would make a good beginner's toy because of the ability to change the size. What better way to get accustomed to larger toys than to be able to slowly adjust the pressure and size of a small probe until you get used to it. Both beginners and advanced users will be able to find much pleasure in this toy.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Once you have the probe inside you or a partner, you have two ways of controlling the sensations. The first comes from inflating the probe. By squeezing the bulb at the end of the air hose, air begins entering the latex skin around the probe and fills the bulb end at the tip. The more you pump, the more air enters the tip of the probe and the larger it gets. The probe can be inflated to some truly impressive sizes and while the material gets alarmingly easy to see through, it seems to be perfectly able to handle high pressures and is unlikely to rupture. Once you have had enough or you just want to adjust how the probe feels, you can press the bleed valve on the pump and release some or all of the air pressure.

Aside from that, this is still a vibrating toy. Connected to the probe via a separate power cord is a standard variable vibration control that you see on most bullet-style vibrators. The remote contains two AA batteries and can be set for any level of power between off and high. Lithium-ion batteries will last much longer and give a little more power to the vibration.
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

Caring for this toy is not a big deal but cleaning it can be. The body material of the probe is latex rubber so you'll want to use water or silicone based lubricants. Separate from the probe you have the remote control which is not waterproof, the pump bulb with release valve, and the place where both of those connect to the probe under the latex sheath. These are all places you could potentially get lube or other fluids and they would be annoying to clean up. Rather than saying you should cover everything with a condom or some nonsense, I'll just say be careful and have some wipes on hand to clean this toy up if you spill something on it. Since this is an awkwardly shaped toy and it takes up a lot of space, you might consider keeping the box it came in or placing it in a small bag to keep all the wires and tubes under control.
    • Easy to store
    • Hard to clean


The packaging is a standard cardboard box with the item inside. The box features a lovely model wearing a latex outfit behind the toy on the front while the back shows the toy in more detail and lists some pertinent information such as measurements, controls, and other useful features. The info block at the bottom states "Perfect for anal or vaginal pleasure" and "Easy *to* use". I'm not sure why that second statement has a modifier but I did indeed find it was easy to use. Being regular old cardboard, this box is recyclable and not really that great for storage.
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable
    • Very informative


It's an unusual feeling to have something slowly inflate inside you. Most of the inflatable toys on the market that I'm familiar with are dildos that inflate across their entire length while this little probe only inflates at the very tip. This puts a lot of pressure on a very small part of your body though I have to admit it is pretty fun. The vibrations don't do much for me but the feeling alone of such a large item inside me is pretty amazing.
