Remote controlled to give you disappointment anywhere

Hey look, a Doctor is telling us that this is a good product. I’m sure she’s actually used and vetted the toy and hasn’t just had her name slapped on the face in an attempt to seem legitimate in order to sell more units. Oh, really? Is that so? I guess we’ll need a second opinion then.
Strong vibrations
Excellent range
"Fits most sizes" = "small"
Odd battery choice
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
It’s always been one of my fantasies to have the ability to pleasure my wife at long distances. Something about having remote control over her nether regions just seems wonderful to me. Imagine my delight when I received this item in the mail. I quickly unpacked it, inserted the batteries, and awaited the return of my wife. Let’s just say disappointment ensued.

Let’s start with a definition. “Fits most sizes” would, to me, imply that said piece of underwear would fit on the order of 75% of the population. My wife is not a large woman. She wears a very moderate Medium in panties. Suffice it to say that it slightly killed the mood when she couldn’t get these panties over her lovely ass. Lucky, I was informed that Hanes underwear tends to also have pockets in the front exactly like these (Hanes is of course known for their kinky underwear?), so we substituted in a pair. Sure, this one was green with polka dots, but beggars can’t afford sex toys.

For the next 10 minutes, I had all kinds of fun playing with my wife as she went about her business. The range is impressive, spanning the length of our apartment, even working through doors and walls. The vibrations were also strong, enough to make her forget words mid sentence.

But the more we played, the more faults we found. First, the vibrator was loud. Loud enough that you wouldn’t use it in public unless you’re someplace where it’s difficult to hold conversations. It was also difficult to adjust once in place. While the beginning was good for teasing, my wife needs more control over the vibrations in order to orgasm, meaning this toy would be all foreplay and no bite. Finally, The battery for the remote is not standard. This to me is a huge oversight. The remote, being the size it is, has the space to contain 2 AA batteries or even a 9 volt. Instead, the use a tiny 12V battery that no one would ever keep a spare for, I assume just to boost the signal. Guess what? When this battery dies, I’m probably not going to go out and find another 12V battery, so it really doesn’t matter how much signal you gained with the extra power.

I’m being harsh. I don’t mean to be harsh. Maybe it’s because the toy insulted by wife by implying that her ass was larger than “most sizes,” and I feel obligated to defend her honor. Whatever the reason, this toy promised the world but ended up as just another broken dream.

    great review, thanks for sharing. Too bad these did not work out better for you.

    Haha. "lovely ass" I like that.
    I don't like when they say "One size fits most" Most really mean 40% of women. Your wife is a medium-ish, that is pretty small. I'm glad you did not let that stop you and you came up with a better idea. I personally would not have thought about that. I would have said SCREW IT!!! and toss it across the room!

    Thats awful it was so loud! I thought vibrating undies were ment to wear out??
    it doesn't do it's job. The battery it runs on is also not too good.

    I don't think I'll be ordering this ANY time soon.
    Thanks so much for the review.

    Great Review, and your wife's bottom is not larger than most sizes. I hate when they slap a label that one size fits most. They need to size them accordingly especially undies 5-6, 7-8, 9-10 11-12, 13-14 etc.

    Thanks for the honest review. Bad sizing is always infuriating, especially in something this expensive. I also share your annoyance at the odd battery size. Ugh.
No discussions yet.
