Ergonomic G-Spotting? Not Here, I'm Afraid.

The Self-Pleasing G is not that self-pleasing. It is ergonomically awkward to manage solo, and may not provide the most effective g-spotting, especially for the advanced sex toy user and g-spotting enthusiast. Otherwise, the design is unique and the vibration patterns are fun and exciting... totally worth trying out on a rainy day if you've exhausted everything else on your to-do list.
Varied Sensation Patterns; Strong Multispeed Vibrations; Discreet volume level.
Controls can be hard to use solo; Toy may be too slender to hit the g-spot effectively; Porous.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Self-Pleasing G by California Exotics is a pink PVC g-spot vibrator made for women. It has a nubbed, bulged shaft that vibrates, pulsates, and escalates with 10 different functions/speeds. The Self-Pleasing G has an easy-to-use power button that turns it on and off, and a separate button that cycles through the various multifunctions. A handy dandy feature? If you accidentally turn off the Self-Pleasing G right before hitting the Big O, when you turn it on again, it will resume right where you left off at the same function, speed, everything! Just like magic! (Honestly, that's one of my favorite features about this toy!)

I think the Self-Pleasing G is a great toy for couple's play, despite its name, because the toy controls are actually located on the outside... perfect for a lover crouching between the legs of the woman of his (or her) true heart's desire.

It should be noted that the controls are actually a bit awkward to manage solo. I mean, can you imagine flying an airplane without being able to see the control panel? Yeah, me neither. Glad we're in agreement. It's one thing to be thrusting with hands and pussy, but pushing buttons and making sure you hit the right button and not the wrong button and the right button at the right time and not the wrong time... without seeing it? That takes mad skills. And I just don't have those skills when I'm in a mad rush to cum. Not gonna lie.

Material / Texture

The Self-Pleasing G is made of pink PVC. It has a faint smell when you first take it out of the package, and the smell dissipates with cleaning. It feels mildly soft and a little plastic-y to touch, and the bottom half is fairly flexible in your hands, while the top half is firm and hard with no give, save for 5 individual nubs that run the length of the inner shaft and are designed to stimulate your clit. The bulged shaft does add some additional stimulation, but since it is of relatively modest girth (read: slim), some women may not notice the extra stimulation the bulged shaft offers.

All in all, since this is a light and pretty slender toy, I'd recommend it for women who are either extremely tight, new to insertion play, or beginners to the whole sex/sex toy thing. Advanced users may find the Self-Pleasing G frustrating. I know I did. Even with my awesomely strong Kegel muscles, the Self-Pleasing G kept falling right out of my tight pussy. "What's up with that?" I said to the Self-Pleasing G. "I'm trying to have an orgasm here!"

She didn't quite reply in words, though she did have a few choice pulses and hums for me. She sang for me, and I moaned back, and together we harmonized our way to mutual orgasm. I had some difficulty figuring out a way to thrust her in and out of my pussy without twisting my wrist; the Self-Pleasing G's curved shape means that she wants to conform to your body and is fussy about you moving her any which way against her wishes. I do think she'd be easier to navigate with a co-pilot at the helm (or, alternatively, a pilot navigating in waters that aren't his or her own body!).

Design / Shape / Size

The Self-Pleasing G has an insertable length of 5.5 inches out of an overall 10 inches, and a modest circumference of 3 inches (which It weighs 4.8 ounces and is fairly light in one's hand. Its shape is naturally curved and it unfolds so that the insertable half can be put inside your pussy, while the non-vibrating portion with little nubs (that actually aren't all that stimulating 'cause they don't vibrate or move or do didley squat) rests up against your clitoral area and mons pubis.

The toy is small enough that it can be almost completely hidden inside an enclosed fist and quickly stashed underneath a pillow or inside a sock drawer if discretion is an issue. It's also relatively quiet, especially when inserted inside your pussy (or your partner's), even on all its various settings, which is a great plus! I'd say this toy is definitely travel-friendly; just make sure to bring some extra "N" batteries along, as the Self-Pleasing G takes two, and they can be hard to find when out of town.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Self-Pleasing G's vibrations are located in the lower flexible portion of the toy's bulged shaft. The vibrations, pulsations and escalations are most prominently felt in the tip of the toy or the first bulge. The sensation is moderately felt in the second bulge, and can be lightly enjoyed in the third bulge (but only if your pussy is paying really, really close attention). The fourth bulge exhibits no sign of powered sensation, nor does the rest of the Self-Pleasing G, unfortunately.

The Self-Pleasing G doesn't seem to have the necessary girth to really do a good job hitting and/or stimulating the g-spot. For me, personally, it's not a good toy choice for g-spotting, and though I don't think it even needs to be said, it's a poor choice for a squirter; the Self-Pleasing G just doesn't have the girth, the power, the thrust-action, or the user-friendliness to make it a go-to toy for the squirter junkie.

Care and Maintenance

Since the Self-Pleasing G is made of PVC, it can be used with your favorite water-based or silicone lubes. The Self-Pleasing G is Phthalates-free. PVC, however, is quite porous, so it's a good idea to use condoms for regular use, and definitely if you share your toys with lovers or friends, to help prevent the spread of bacteria and potential infection or disease. It should be cleaned with warm water and antibacterial soap, or alternatively, you may also clean the Self-Pleasing G with any sex toy cleaner.

Follow-up commentary
With some patience and finagling, I've found that the Self-pleasing G is much more self-pleasing with the Hitachi Magic Wand used in tandem. Now I like the Self-pleasing G a lot more, and am able to enjoy its unique shape and design features.

Over time, I've begun to adjust to the control panel, and am much more comfortable navigating through the functions without being able to see the buttons when the Self-pleasing G is inside of my pussy.

I've also discovered that the Self-Pleasing G is a sassy lil' anal toy, and a blast to play with when on the multi-function vibrations and combined with a vibrator or dildo in your pussy and a clitoral stimulator like the almighty Hitachi. It's like a ticket to Heaven! (Note: Just be sure to use condoms for anal-use. The Self-Pleasing G's natural shape ensures that you always have about 5 inches outside of the anus for easy and safe retrieval.)
