Tantric nirvana massager - traditional vibrator by Cal Exotics - review by married with children

Add resource

Is this the true meaning of "Nirvana Unplugged"

This vibrator had so many things going for it. Lots of vibrations patterns, curved tip for g-spot pleasure, just the right diameter; just to name a few. But it few short on the stupid raised pattern they stamped on the shaft. It just ruined it, at least for us. I will give this 3 stars for the power and the 10 different vibration patterns it has.
strong vibrations, lots of different patterns.
raised pattern has too much of a sharp ridge
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This vibrator can be used for internal stimulation on your g-spot, or as a clit vib. The different vibrations should be able to make any woman squirm with pleasure. I do not really see this being useful for us men. It just is not designed for us. The most joy I will get out of it is using it on my wife.

Material / Texture

This is made from 100% silicone, or at least the insertable portion is. The handle is made from plastic. The vibrator has no smell or taste to it. The silicone reminds me of tantus silicone. It is very firm and smooth. The only texture on the insertable portion is from a flower/vine design running up the vibrator. This design makes this toy pretty hard to use for thrusting. My wife found out the hard way, when she tried to use it for this purpose. She said it hurt like hell.
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

The basic design of this vibrator is for G-spot pleasure. It is curved upward at the tip, to reach toward your g-spot. But with the flower/vine design on the shaft, it kind of defeats the purpose. It is pretty much useless for thrusting. I suppose you could insert it and hold the tip on your g-spot, but if you are like my wife you need some movement on the g-spot to really do the trick.

This is listed at 1 1/2 inch diameter, but I get a measurement closer to 1 1/4 inches (at its widest portion). The insertable portion is 4 1/2 inches long, with an overall length of about 7 1/2 inches.

This toy can be used by both beginners and the more advanced users of sex toys. It is a simple toy that gives strong vibrations, but more on that below. You can tell by looking at it that this is a sex toy. It is not very discreet. It does not scream "I'm a sex toy", but it does not whisper it either.
    • Whimsical / artistic

Functions / Performance / Controls

This has 10 different vibration patterns. Each click of the button on the bottom of the vibrator changes the pattern. You have to hold it for 3 seconds if you would like to turn off your toy. I don't really like this set up. What happens if someone comes to your room and does not wait for you to give them the ok to come in. You don't have time to hold the button for 3 seconds to try to turn off the vibration sounds. But that is just me. We don't really have to worry too much about this, at least for now. We can hear the kids coming long before they get to our bedroom door.

Here is a list of the vibration patterns:
1. steady vibration high
2. steady vibration medium
3. steady vibration low
4. gradient burst low to high in fast bursts, repeats
5. throbbing very fast medium vibrations
6. throbbing, longer bursts with a longer off time between bursts higher vibrations
7. throbbing, very fast and high pitched, high vibrations
8. this one is kind of like pattern 4, but quicker going through the vibration strengths and a deeper pitch
9. steady high vibration steps, about 1/2 second long, then a short break and repeats
10. pulse on a lower vibration setting, very fast pitched

With all these vibration patterns, one should be able to find a pattern and vibration strength that would work. This toy is pretty noisy. Not like a magic wand, but it is loud and high pitched. You can hear it under the blanket or sitting across the room, but not through a closed door.

The box says not to submerge this in water. So I would assume that it is not 100% waterproof. There is a rubber o-ring on the battery compartment to help keep moisture out. So I would guess a quick cleaning would not hurt the toy, just don't play with him in the bathtub.

I am not sure how long the batteries last with much use. My wife does not like this toy very much, because of the raised design on the shaft. So it has not gotten enough use to test the battery life and if it is a battery guzzler or not. It is pretty powerful, so I am guessing that the battery life will not be the greatest.
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Multiple settings
    • Strong patterns

Care and Maintenance

So, as stated above, this is not 100% waterproof. So do not submerge it to clean. I have washed ours under the facet with some soap and warm water. It has not caused any problems. But then I don't let it soak in the water for long periods of time. I wash it and dry it off. I just stored this in the sex toy drawer, and have not had any problems with it. I would suggest to use some care, as the button on the bottom of this vibrator turns on with very little effort.

Because this is made from silicone, do not use silicone lube with it. Only water based, please. Some people have used silicone lubes with silicone toys without any problems. But this toy says to only use water based lubes with it. I have not tried to use silicone lubes with any of our silicone toys. Mostly because I just do not like silicone lubes. They do not feel right to me or my wife. Water based just work better for us.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


This comes packed in a clear plastic box. The toy is on full view in the box. There is little information on the package. A little box on the bottom with some info about California Exotic Novelties, along with their web site. The back has a big picture of the vibrator, along with a few blurbs on the toy itself. It also comes with a instruction booklet that shows how to insert the batteries.

The plastic box it comes in is pretty much worthless. You can keep it for storage, but it is not very discreet.
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

This toy just did not perform as we would have liked. My wife can basically only use this for a clit vibrator. The raised flower design running up the shaft kind of ruins it for insertion. We both wish it was just smooth, or with light texture of some kind; not this flower design. It is a overpriced bullet this way. It is not a light texture either, it is raised between 1/16 to 1/8 inch. That is a pretty good ridge. This might work for others, but not for us.
Follow-up commentary
we have not used this any more after the testing for my review. She is just not into it, with all the other great toys we have. This just isn't for her. This vib has a lot going for it. All the different vibration settings are great. The power consumption is not as bad as some of the other toys on the market. The controls are easy to get to and use. So it is not a bad toy. She just has her favorites.
