The screaming octopus - sex toy by The Screaming O - review by Pumpkin Lady


This was an accessory to my first toy in case I felt I needed extra stimulation, and it just wasn't any good being even an addition to my playtime. I would have rather not bought it.
Very cute, very quiet.
Not powerful enough.
Rating by reviewer:
somewhat useful review
To start, I was SO excited about this toy. Octopus are my favorite animal, and look how cute it is! It's always exciting to get a great traveling toy...

If it works. The on / off switch is so difficult to use. It's a bullet vibe with a soft and squishy on / off button encased in very jelly-like TPR silicone, so it just kind of ungulates in the Octo while you try to turn it on. Best way is to actually take the bullet out, turn it on and put it back in. There's one speed, which is fine because of the size, I wouldn't have expected anything else. There wasn't any smell to note, that's a plus for me. Cleaning really was not a fun endeavor, like I stated before the octopus is a casing for the bullet, and you have to be sure to get all the cleaner out of his little head before playing for safety.

It takes 2 little watch batteries, and if you find you like it, make sure you have enough on hand because they burn FAST. I hardly even used it and it doesn't work anymore, I don't think I'll be buying replacement batteries.

It just wasn't powerful enough to do anything for me. It's even smaller than I thought it would be when it showed up, but I still held my breath thinking there would be more power in the punch. Not so. I tried using it almost every way possible, in my frustration I tossed it to the side and used another toy to satisfy. I think I lost it already... if I find it I'd like to try it out while giving my boyfriend oral to see if there's a place for the Screaming Octopus or if it just goes right in the garbage.
Follow-up commentary
You get what you pay for when you buy a watch-battery powered toy. If you have used these bullet-style vibes before and are satisfied with them, you might enjoy the jello-y legs attached to it for a dressed-up version. This was one of my first toys so I think I was expecting something with more power to it. Just not for me! Still cute though.

  • LucyLemonade
    For some reason I feel like an octopus should suck, not vibrate. Smile

    Welcome to the community & thanks for the honest review.
  • Pumpkin Lady
    Hehe! Agreed! Thanks for the comments and the welcome!

    Arrghh... i really don't like watch batteries that power toys.. they tend to never last long and if they do the toy is usually extremely weak (vibrating wise).

    Thanks for the review.

    Perish: Being a bit of a newbie there I think now I know, you can't expect a lot of power if it doesn't come from a lot of power. Thanks for the comment!

    Maybe you could swap the bullet in Octopus out for a more powerful one?

    I've seen an ear of corn, a carrot, and now, an octopus. The surprises just keep coming!

    Do you know if there are any kitty-inspired toys?
  • Meowmix
    As in cat, because most of them are pussy-inspired. Big smile

    You know, I thought about getting another bullet, but the one they provide is SO small, it's like a midget bullet. I haven't found one yet that would fit it. I would give it a try if I did though.

    And yeah kitty toys would be awesome! The only one I've seen yet is a flogger. :/ A rabbit-style kitty would be prime! (hehe, meowmix Smile)

    It is cute, in a creepy little "it's staring at me" way. Too bad it just doesn't hold up.

    At least it didn't smell like a little ball of chemical waste. Big smile

    Did you try this one in the water at all?
