Once is never enough with a toy like you!

We wanted to try a graduated bulb-shaped product that would have a deep motor and yet have a reasonable price. We ordered two different products to try and fell in love with this one. It has reinforced our experience and belief that Evolved Novelties is one of the brands we will stick with and "invest" in when it comes to toys because we love their motors and their quality. They are so easy to use.
Flexible bulb shape, graduated bulb sizes, easy to use
A bit large for beginners
Battery cap must be closed VERY tightly in order to work

extremely useful review


Evolved Novelties hit the ball out of the park for this one and it has become our guaranteed "home run" toy since we received it. This guy is good for clitoral use but prefers to find your G-spot and bring it to full arousal. We do not recommend him for anal use due to the lack of a flared base. However, if you choose to use him this way because you have a partner, we highly recommend using a condom.

We find this guy is best for couple use versus solo play because he is so soft and flexible that he can be hard to insert if you're alone.

Material / Texture

We did not notice any odors when we removed him from his box, nor did we notice any taste. The material though feels much like jelly and has a bit of drag to it.

He is made of TPR and is Hypo-allergenic, latex free and Phthalates free.

The 1.5" cap at the end is made of hard plastic.

His texture is great for beginners but we recommend him more for intermediate and advanced users because of his circumference.

Design / Shape / Size

We love Evolved Novelties toys but when I first saw him, I was hesitant to use him. He's made of TPR but is soft and flexible and felt much like jelly. I was afraid that he would not be rigid enough for me to enjoy when he was inserted. My husband knows my body better than I do and he felt differently about this guy.

Fortunately, my husband was so right and I was so wrong.

Yes, he is very flexible and can take a moment or two to insert. However, once he is inserted my kegel muscles grab his bulbs and playtime is on. I was shocked at how much I enjoyed him but he is the first vibrator I have had with a contoured shape that is made up of a series of bulbs. The bulbs definitely give me added pleasure as I grab onto them when he is being thrusted.

His top bulb is 3.75" in circumference and the second bulb is almost 5" in circumference. The motor is located in the second and third bulbs. By the time you get to the bottom bulb, he is 5.75" in circumference, which is the same size as the base.

He definitely isn't discreet with his bright color and bulbous shape. I wouldn't want to put him in a carry-on bag if I was flying. However, I wouldn't worry about sticking him in my sock drawer or underwear drawer under a few items.
    • Partner play

Functions / Performance / Controls

It isn't just his bulbed shape that brings me pleasure though. We find that while he is great for thrusting, adding the vibrations that he gives helps immensely in giving me many orgasms that are spaced closely together. I have been able to reach the orgasms faster with him internally than almost any other vibrator - the exception being the Evolved Roulette Croupier.

He uses 2 AA batteries and is both multispeed (3 speeds) and waterproof. He is very easy to get started with, you simply open the base, put in the batteries and tighten the base VERY tight. He did not work the first time because I did not have the lid tight enough. Once the batteries are in, press the button at the bottom of the base to cycle through his three speeds.

The first speed is felt mainly in his top three bulbs although you can feel a bit of the vibration in the bottom two bulbs. The second speed can be felt throughout all five bulbs and makes my hand tingle if I hold it in my hand. When I hold him in my hand with the third speed on, my hands can feel the vibrations and it numbs them a bit but with a deeper and more rumbly vibration than the second speed.

I had him laying on my desk and accidentally turned him on while typing this. The first speed was barely noticeable but on the second and third speed I noticed him rocking a bit on my desk and making a noise against the wood.

My favorite speed is definitely the third speed.

When my husband was using this, he stated that once he had him on the right speed for me, he never had to worry about turning him off because he only had to use the handle for thrusting. Looking at him and playing with him now, I agree with that assessment. You would have to choose to adjust his speed or turn him off because you have to push on the button a little.

We did not try him in the water because we aren't big on waterplay. While he does have an O-ring, I consider him more splash proof than water proof because of the way he sits down on the hard plastic base. I would be afraid of water seeping up into him somehow.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I wouldn't mind using him in the shower but I would be concerned about immersing him in a bathtub or hot tub.
    • Discreet sound
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

He does best with warm water and soap when it comes to being cleaned. I wouldn't boil him or put him in a dishwasher due to his motor. Since he is porous, he really needs a condom if being shared by partners.

When it comes to lubes, he really doesn't care if you use silicone lube or water-based lube because either will work well with him.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


I love Evolved Novelties and the tins their toys come in. This is our second Evolved toy and we're definitely hooked on their products for the quality but also for the storage tins they come with.

He comes in a silver tin with a black lid. You can see him through the cover which states "Evolved Waterproof French Kiss" and at the bottom it states "True Love Edition". The sides state that he is waterproof, has three speeds and is phthalate free and give the website ( and company name.

The bottom of his tin contains the majority of his information and does state that he is a novelty toy for external use.

Once you open his tin, you see that he sits in a black velvety foam which has been precut to hold him in place. You also find a card to contact the website for registration and warranty information. When I went to the website, I was able to sign up for a newsletter and I read about the limited one-year warranty on the products.
    • Good for storage

Personal comments

This is our second Evolved Novelties toy and we are very pleased with the company and the lines we have tried. We like the motors and the size of the products and the ease of use.

We find that this toy is great for giving me orgasms that come fast and hard when on the highest setting, but also for help me "cool down" after an intense playtime by using the lowest setting. It does an adequate job on the clitoris but we prefer it for G-spot use and for my Kegel muscles which ache "oh so good" after using him.

Because I have a long torso and short arms, I can not use him for "self-stimulation" but we recommend him more for couple play anyway because of his flexibility.
Follow-up commentary
We still love the French Kiss even though my husband calls it "ballsy". While I have a definite preference for G-spot vibrators, the textures on this one really make me feel great. In fact, now that we're moving into dildos, we are looking at dildos and considering ones that are shaped like this because we know this texture works so well for me.

I still highly recommend it and if I could give it 10 stars, I would.
