Essence pure energy - g-spot vibrator by Cal Exotics - review by Emma (Girl With Fire)

Essence, whos Pure Energy could be put to better use...

I would recommend this toy to a beginner who plans to use it for clitoral or other exterior stimulation. It would be good for an introductory toy aimed towards the exterior. I would not suggest it if you are an experienced toy owner who likes power, thrust, or stimulating textures because you will not be satisfied with this.
Very Discreet
Fairly Quiet
Mild Vibrations
Limited Settings
Useless Under Water.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This vibe is best used as a clitoral stimulator, it can be inserted vaginally and is recommended for G-spot stimulation, however it is really not long enough (only 5") for any type of thrusting motion, or maneuverability.
This toy would also be useful for stimulating the outer area of the anus.

It could be used alone or by a partner in foreplay. Would be good for a beginner, but I would not recommend this for an advanced user as the vibrations are not very strong.

Because this vibe is also waterproof it can be taken into the bath/shower for some added excitement.

Material / Texture

This is mainly a plastic toy, although it does have a nubbed silicone pad on the top for added stimulation. These materials are Phthalates free, Latex free, and Hypo-allergenic.

This Vibe doesn't really smell like anything at all. I really liked that about it. There is nothing worse than a great toy, that is ruined by having an overpowering odor which never goes away. (At least in my opinion.)

The silicone pad has a nubbed texture, which is really not raised enough to create much additional stimulation. I actually found that the silicone muffled the vibrations slightly, the more powerful vibrations could be felt on the plastic area of the vibe.
    • Bumpy
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

The design of this toy leaves something to be desired. It is described as being "Perfectly curved to reach every single spot that you would possibly need to reach (G-spot included!), this vibe goes leaps and bounds beyond others like it". The shape was fine, however the size was not adequate when it came to control during penetration. . I did manage to hit my G-spot with this, but I kept losing my grip and it would rotate away from the G-spot quite easily. As an exterior massager, for the vulva, clitoris, nipples and anus, this is a good toy. It just doesn't quite cut it as an insertable toy.

I found that neither the ribbing on the base of the toy or the nubs on the silicone were defined enough to add much stimulation.

The Essence is very discreet, it doesn't really look at all like a sex toy. Would be great for travel as it is unlikely to draw attention, and is relatively small. Because of the materials used it also wont collect a ton of crud if it is just flopping around in your bag or suitcase.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The controls on this toy are easy to locate and use, there are ON and OFF markers located halfway up the toy, right above the seam where it comes apart to insert the batteries. To operate the toy you simply twist the top until the little dot lines up with the ON marker. To open this toy up and insert the batteries you simply twist and pull on the top half of the toy. I actually find this a bit disconcerting; this is a waterproof toy, and it seems like it would be all to easy to knock it apart in the bathtub and fry the circuits.

Regrettably this vibe has only one setting/speed, and I found that the vibrations were not strong enough to satisfy my needs. The vibrations flow through the entire toy, there doesn't seem to be any area which has stronger vibrations than any other. With the exception of the silicone, which seems to muffle the vibrations slightly. The sound is fairly discreet as well; it would probably be inaudible over a television or music.

It is waterproof, however the vibrations which are only moderate to begin with, were greatly diminished once underwater. Probably by half. The volume is also amplified by the water, especially when the vibe is close to or touching the bathtub.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

This toy is easily taken care of, simply wash with hot water and an antibacterial soap. You can also wipe this toy down with isopropyl alcohol.

Normally with a plastic toy, you could use a variety of lubes, but because of the silicone pad on the top of this toy, you must be sure to use only a water based lube; silicone and oil based lubes can damage this part of the vibe.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


This toy is packaged in a small plastic box, the packaging is minimal and recyclable. There is not much information on the box,(wash before and after use, water based lube, battery info). There is also a small piece of paper inside detailing the battery insertion instructions. This instructs you to twist the top to open the vibrator, but if you don't pull on it you wont get anywhere so keep that in mind.
    • Minimal
    • Recyclable


I was really disappointed with this toy. I received it at the same time as a finger vibe powered by a very basic bullet. The vibrations were comparable, but I think they were actually stronger in the bullet which was half the price. I didn't have any trouble accessing my g-spot with this vibe, however because of its size it was hard to hold onto while inserted, and I could not control it so it kept rotating away from the G-spot.

It worked well for exterior stimulation, (nipples, anus and clitoris), however I didn't find the vibrations strong enough to really satisfy me. Unfortunately the areas of the Vibe designed to give the most stimulation, (tip and ribbing), were not really of any use to me.

My biggest disappointment was when trying to use this toy in the bath. The power of the vibrations was probably cut in half once submerged. It was virtually impossible for me to become aroused enough to climax using this in the tub.
Follow-up commentary
I like the look of this one but every time I pull it out and turn it on, I am disappointed. I usually end up throwing it back in the toy box and searching for something with a little more power. Ok, A LOT more power. It is well constructed but as far as power goes this one doesn't have a whole lot to offer me. I usually just end up frustrated and grumbling while I try to find something that is more likely to satisfy my clit-o-steel.
