Petite flowers swirl hibiscus - traditional vibrator by Doc Johnson - review by *Huxley*

Flower Power?

A great toy for beginners. The vibrations would be too weak for most, but may work wonders for newbies alike. A super cute non intrusive, flexible design that can be used for both insertion or clitoral stimulation. A simple control dial makes moving from high to low a breeze. This toy would be a great place to start or for warming up.
cute, lots of texture, beginner toy, flexible, small, quite
weak, lint magnet

extremely useful review


The Petite flowers swirl hibiscus is a vibrating traditional dildo. It offers a nice swirling texture as well as flexibility.
It is made for vaginal insertion, but could be used to stimulated your nipples, clitoris, or various parts of your body. Made from hypo-allergenic TPE which is free from latex as well as being phthalates free, makes it safe for your sensitive areas.

Material / Texture

The petite flowers swirl hibiscus' stem is an opaque deep pink, made from phthalates free TPE (Thermoplastic elastomer). It is also latex free as well as being hypo-allergenic. There was little to no odor upon first impression, and washing would take care of any odor you may encounter. The swirl is also void of any taste. The material is nice and firm, while still being flexible and soft. It is slightly bouncy, the stem will sway if you hold the base and move it side to side quickly. Using your finger to drag across the stem, you will find there is a bit of drag from the material. It easily will adjust to your body temperature and hold onto it.
There are raised hibiscus' imprinted throughout the molded swirl. The bottom battery cap is made from light pink ABS plastic.

I would not condone any anal use with the swirl, as TPE is a porous material, there also is not a flange on the swirl, it could not be safety inserted into your butt without risking a lost little flower. Use carefully!

Design / Shape / Size

(shown next to a AAA battery)

The swirl is a average sized dildo, best used for beginners, The entire unit measures a total 7 5/8" tall. The battery cap, which also holds the control panel is 1 5/8" long the stem is 6" long, with a diameter of 1 3/8",
The stem is the only part of the swirl that is insertable. Although this is not a girthy toy, it does make up by offering tons of texture. There is a molded swirl that is resent throughout the entire stem. The swirls measure just short of an inch each and are indented in between the ribbing. Decorated though out the stem are 21 hibiscus flowers.
The Swirl is extremely flexible, which is void of an inner skeleton or boning for that matter. Making the swirl capable of bending into 180 degree angles. Sadly, the movements won't be remembered and the swirl will snap back into it's original shape as soon as you let go.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The control's are located on the battery cap. It is a turned based dial that is somewhat irritating to turn. There are 4 sets of 2 raised '||' on the top, bottom, left and right. It is best to move the dial with a finger nail, but you really need to apply pressure and twist your finger while pressing to move the dial from off to on. It takes about a quarter of a turn before the vibrations kick in.
There is a raised print around the round control dial, 'multi-speed' on the left, 'waterproof on the right'. Also on the bottom there is raised print 'high to low'. When the dial is turned all the way to the right, its off, moving it to the left kicks the vibrations on. Moving further to the left is the highest setting. Turning it back to the right, turns it off. There is the signature 'Doc Johnson' logo in silver placed above the dial.
The vibration is not felt through out the toy as you would imagine, but are present at the tip of the toy where the shaft is tapered. If you look closely you will see the mini bullet which is housed in TPE is placed about 1/2" from the very tip top of the toy. The vibrations are weak and there really isn't a variation in the vibrations. The only vibration setting are Low-High, by twisting the dial you an move from 1/2 Vroom to a high 2, maybe a low 3 vroom.

But, it super quite and is waterproof, so have fun with that.
    • Discreet sound
    • Not enough variety
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

The swirl takes 2 AAA batteries, which are placed inside the bottom of the stem once you unscrew the battery cap. One AAA battery goes in with the "+" up and one battery with "-" up. This can be tricky as it is threaded badly. You really need to make sure that you screw the cap perfectly straight on, or it will screw on crooked and you will not initiate the waterproof seal or battery connection.


TPE cleaning is finicky. Since TPE is porous it cannot be fully sterilized. There are a lot of nooks for bacteria to hide on the swirl, so washing is very important. To safely clean the swirl, use warm soapy water or toy cleaner. Wipe down, rinse, repeat, and let air dry.

Always keep your toys completely clean, dry, and battery-less when storing.
Water and silicone-based lubricants should be used with TPE toys. Since TPE holds onto bacteria, use condoms when switching orifices to fend off bacteria and UTI's.

Keep in mind that the swirl is a lint magnet and should be cleaned prior as well as after play.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The swirl comes in a plastic box, which holds the plastic insert that proudly displays the swirl though a pretty window. No starter batteries, instructions, or warranty information.

Egh, I can't honestly say that I like this toy at all. Actually, I kind of hate it.
It's a small somewhat floppy dildo that has some of the weakest vibrations for the size that it is. It was just disappointing. I can't say that I will ever grab this for anything, and actually other then testing it out for the review, I will honestly never use it again. But that's just me. For some, this could be a great starter toy or something to warm up with.

It is made well, and it's super cute. I am sure that if I was beginning my journey into sex toy utopia I probably would love it. It's not intrusive at all, and it's the opposite of alarming when pulled out, it's a "aweeeeee" moment more then a "fuck yeah, fuck me with that!" moment. It's vibrations are weak which will be prefect for some, but far to weak for others. I found it to be way too flexible and feels like putting a semi flaccid rippled cock, cross that, stick into my vagina. Not so much my thing. But once again, some will love this.
Although comfortable once inserted, it didn't do much for me. Hitting my g spot or trying to bend it was near impossible. If I took it out and pressed the tip to my clit, I got a small token of pleasure but even then, it was mediocre at best. Using it on the rest of my body (nipples, tracing down my stomach, etc) was fine, but nothing to rave about. Oh well, this will make someone a happy lady, just not me.
Deal breaker.
Follow-up commentary
Yuck! I have tried to like this toy since it does offers an awesome texture. But no such luck.
Another one bites the dust.

  • ~LaUr3n~
    I hate how it bends so much!
  • *Huxley*
    Me too. I really hated this toy, and still do. To be honest it hasn't gotten any play since I wrote the review. I am surprised at all the 5 starts reviews on it.
    Ah well. Another one bites the dust.

    Amazing review! I love the pictures!
  • K101
    Aw man! What a bummer! I was hoping to hear good things about this cute thing! I loved the look and especially the rippled part. I have a pipe dream twister vibe and I absolutely LOVE that ripple/twisted thing. I actually just bought another small vibe that had similar rippleness to it. Anyways, I hate that it didn't measure up. Too bad it was weak on the vibes. That's a huge disappointment! Very wonderful review!
