Houston's pink leopard junior - sex toy by Cal Exotics - review by Slutty Girl Problems

Barely Purring

This inexpensive toy would be great for beginners, and has a simple sleek design with nice vibrations for the price. But, it lacks the versatility and power of higher-quality toys.
Great for Beginners, Inexpensive, Multiple Speeds, Cute Design, Easy to Use, Clean, and Store
Little Versatility, Weak Vibrations, Simple Functions
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This vibrator is a nice, cheap toy for beginners, both for solo and couple's use. But it lacks the versatility and power offered by higher-quality vibes.

It can be used for clitoral, nipple, and internal stimulation, though with the straight design, I wouldn't necessarily say it easily hits the G-spot. It has a nice length and girth that would be easy for beginners. This toy is better for teasing than it is for a full-blown orgasm. It has a weak vibration level, best for those who enjoy lighter stimulation. I wouldn't recommend this toy for anal play, as it does not have a very flared base, but could be used for light penetration and stimulation, with care.

This vibe is a water-proof toy, so perfect for any bath or shower play. Always a plus! But unfortunately, the vibrations are even weaker in the water, which I find to be somewhat common with waterproof toys. It is also a relatively small toy, so it's great for travel - as long as you remember to take the batteries out! Due to the twist-dial turn on at the bottom, this loud and proud toy could start cranking during transit!

Material / Texture

This vibe is made entirely of hard plastic. For many sex-toy lovers, this can be a love-hate relationship.

On one hand, plastic is a pretty safe material (rating an 8 on the Eden Fantasy's scale). It is a food-grade material that is hypo-allergenic, latex free and phthalate free, so putting it near your body is a really safe bet! I also love that it is nonporous and easy to clean, so I always feel safe using it. It also is smooth with no odor, making it pleasurable to the senses.

On the other hand, plastic is a very hard and firm material that is very rigid with no flexibility at all. Personally, I prefer toys that feel more life-like, or at least have a little bit of bend and movement (like silicone).

This particular toy is completely smooth, with no ridges or bumps along that shaft to provide texture. For a beginner, this is great, as it is easy to slide in yourself with out any friction or uncomfortable textures. But, for an experienced user, or even someone who uses this toy regularly, the smooth straightness can get really dull and boring. Without any texture, it lacks additional pleasure, and the versatility of internal stimulation.
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

This vibe is a relatively small, traditional vibrator with a straight "up and down" design. It is 4 and a quarter inches (4 1/4") long including the battery and multi-speed control at the base. The insertable pink leopard shaft is 3 1/4 inches. It is 4 inches in girth (circumference) and has a 1 1/4 inch diameter at the base, with the shaft coming to a soft point at the top.

This size, shape, and design is best for beginners, since it is simple, small, sleek, smooth, and somewhat satisfying. It is also a good size for travel, though the design and packing stand out and are not very discreet. Plus, you should definitely remove the batteries before traveling.

To me, this design is pretty unexciting. This traditional shape lacks any bumps or ridges for added texture and sensation, and it is not curved for G-spot stimulation. The length and girth is a bit too small for me. It can also get incredibly slippery with lubrication, which entirely masks any internal stimulation. In fact, without any additional traction, this toy tends to "slip out" if you're not paying close attention to keeping it in. If you're looking for a vibe that will give you a power-packed sensation, look elsewhere.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This little vibe is VERY easy to use. It has a turn dial at the base which you twist to turn on and off and also to control the speed or intensity of the vibration. This is conveniently located, but can be a bit difficult to manage changing speeds while the toy is inside you. You can control the speed to ANY intensity preference, which is much better than the standard "low" "medium" "high" preset vibration settings. However, I found that even at the highest intensity, this vibe was lacking the power I crave. Between the sleek design and moderate vibration, this vibe barely had me purring. The vibrations can be felt throughout the entire shaft, but are stronger at the tip (where the motor is), which is great for direct clitoral stimulation (but no better than a bullet), but the vibration seems to be dulled with insertion. As with many waterproof toys, I don't have as much sensation in the shower or bath. Even so, I like the versatility of speeds for different sensations and adding some extra spice to a generally bland toy.

The turn dial is part of the battery compartment, which takes one AA or two C batteries. Since the battery portion is longer than the speed intensity dial, the battery compartment won't dislodge and turn off the vibrator if you misplace your fingers, or turn a little too far. I've had this problem with similar vibes, though this change seems to fix the issue. Even so, I would definitely make sure that the battery compartment is tightly closed before using it in the shower, so water doesn't seep in.

One thing to really express is that this vibe is LOUD. It has a very buzzy sound that can DEFINITELY be heard through the covers, through the door, and probably in the next room. If you have roommates, live with family, or are anywhere semi-public, do not use this toy. Personally, the loudness cranking also takes away a lot of the pleasure for me, as I like to get lost in my fantasies, rather than be reminded of my battery operated boyfriend.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Not enough variety

Care and Maintenance

Since this toy is plastic, waterproof, and smooth - cleaning is really easy. I personally like to wash this toy and similar toys with antibacterial soap and water, but you can also use a toy cleaner or wipes, alcohol, or 10% bleach solution. Don't boil this toy, or put it in the dishwasher, because it can ruin the battery mechanics. It can be stored virtually anywhere - in a pouch, your drawers, or wherever - since it is so small. Always remember to remove batteries while storing. Since it is made of plastic, it can be used with any type of lube, and only takes a little bit to get really slippery.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


I never like toys that come in cheap plastic packaging, but with a cheap toy, you get what you pay for. This toy's packaging has the classic "Adult XXX Sex Shop" in neon-lights feel. It comes in a plastic covering that can be snapped open or cut open with scissors (which I did in my haste to just get the thing out), with a woman in a bikini on the front, the name of the product boldly displayed, and a see-through effect to the vibrator. It is definitely not good packaging to use for long-term storage.
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

I picked this toy specifically for the cute, pink, leopard print design - a personal favorite! The design is integrated into the plastic, but has faded over time.
    • Cute design


This toy is not my favorite, though not a total waste of money. It does do it's job, but you get what you pay for in quality and sensation. It's definitely best for someone who's a beginner, on a budget, and wants a very light introductory toy that can also go in the water. And of course, someone who loves pink leopard print!
Follow-up commentary
Since my review, I've totally retired this toy. It was a nice beginner's vibrator, and I'm glad that I bought it as my very first vibe - but I've moved on to bigger and better things! Before I retired it, it was still in good shape... solid vibrations and no serious signs of wear. But, time for this little toy to go!

    Thanks so much for the feedback! I am definitely hard on my toys, and have left this out on my dresser to bake in the sun, so I'm not surprised there
