Petite flowers swirl hibiscus - sex toy by Doc Johnson - review by ~LaUr3n~

The Best Bendy Tease Ever!

The Swirl Hibiscus is the first Doc Johnson toy I have really liked in a while. I am impressed with the direction the company is going in. This cute vibrator isn't superior quality, but it is a really nice vibrator for the price. I used it to tease myself to amazing heights.
Pretty, lovely texture, discreet sound in the body, comfortable, no smell
Vibes concentrated in tip, average power, takes extra time to clean

extremely useful review


Say it with flowers! Designed by a woman, for a woman, the Petite Flowers Swirl Hibiscus is a vibrator with a soft, textured exterior. It is great for anyone who like texture, moderately small toys, or is even a beginner. The variable speeds might not be powerful enough for everyone, for but they were plenty for me. The dial is easy to use and the sound level is very low inside the body and still not loud outside of it. It's good for roommate kind of situations and can even be used in the tub or shower. The best part is the bendy body, I found as awesome way to tease myself with it!

Material / Texture

The Swirl Hibiscus is made from plush, resiliant, nontoxic, and flexible TPE. The hypo-allergenic material is safe for those with sensitivities, because it is latex and phthalates free. The TPE is semi-porous, but much safer than rubber and jelly composites. If you are wanting to share this with someone, you should use a condom to reduce contaminations and bacteria spread. There is a little drag, so lubrication is probably necessary, depending on your personal anatomy.

The TPE is smooth, but it has a patterned texture of hibiscus flowers throughout.
    • Bumpy
    • Flexible
    • Somewhat porous

Design / Shape / Size

The design for this vibrator is really cute and pretty to look at. The twirled, twisted look makes it have bulbs or ribs that feel wonderful during penetration, especially when added to the texture. The full length is 7 3/4" and the insertable length is about 6" long. The thickness slightly and slowly increases from the tip's 3 1/4" to about 4 1/4". About half way up the toy it can be bent entirely in half. The body is very flexible, which can be bad or good. It definately is too soft and bendy for g-spot stimulation though! While the tip is a bit pointy, it does not feel this way due to the plush material.

The material is semi-see through. Due to this the bullet can be seen in the tip. Even the batteries can be seen.

The bottom 1 3/4" of the toy is the battery cap and control housing. This vibrator has the typical Doc Johson side turn dial. The beauty of this is that you can use your thumb to turn it and can see what you are doing. The grip helps this too.

This toy is obviously a vibrator and is not discreet.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Two AAA batteries power the Swirl Hibiscus. The dial powers the vibrator. Turned slightly it will start on a steady, moderate level of vibration. Turning the dial will give variable levels. I did not notice a more gradual change. It seems to be moderate, slightly higher, and ending on a medium high level. I think that the vibration intensity might not be enough for those who crave power. It was just fine for me though. I could even finish on the lowest level. For some, it might also be a problem that the vibration are highly consentrated in the tip. When inserted, the power drastically gets reduced and so does the sound. It probably could not be heard by someone in the same room unless you removed it from your body. I mainly used this for the texture and clitoral stimulation.

I'm not typically a huge fan of texture, but I love these raised flowers! Inserting the toy is heavenly, and because the material is fairly soft, I could thrust it fast without discomfort. The body is way too bendy to provide g-spot stimulation, and while the texture felt amazing, I could no finigh from the penetration alone. I prefered to use this for clitoral stimulation when I got to the point of wanting to finish.

So why do I love the bending so much? Picture this. I'm watching some tastless porn, and I'm wanting to get off in no hurry. Fully aroused, my clit is ready, but I am so not wanting the amaznig feeling to end so soon. Sometimes, it is really hard to pull a vibe away when it feels so good. Holding the Swirl Hibiscus at the end and placing the tip against my clit allows me to tease myself beautifully. As my pelvis begs to push into the vibrator, the Swirl Hibiscus will bend back giving me only a bit extra of her vibration. Eventually, I have to give in and use my other hand to press the vibrator against my clit. Amazing.

This toy is also waterproof. It passed both my tub and shower test. I feel confident using it in both settings.
    • Discreet sound
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

The nice thing about TPE is that it can feel as resiliant as silicone composites but can still be used with silicone lubricant. Water based lubricant works great too. Cleaning takes a bit of extra time. Due to the texture, this vibrator cannot simply be sprayed and wiped. You really need to clean the grooves. I suggest buying a soft bristled tooth brush for this. Use water and soap with the brush. After washing, let it dry, remove the batteries, and then store. It can be stored in the package or in another plastic container or bag. Make sure it is out of direct sunlight, in a cool place, and not in direct contact with other toys of slmilar materials.
    • Easy to store
    • Hard to clean


The packaging is simple and suiting. The vibrator sits in a somewhat see-through, plastic packaging. The vibrator can be clearly seen through it, so it is not discreet. The outside has flower designs, descriptions of the toy, and warranty information. It works well for storage, but can also be ditched for a smaller pouch.
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable
Follow-up commentary
I still really like this toy and am really glad it was provided as a free add on. I probably would not have gotten it otherwise. It's a great toy to use when I want to take my time and go slow. It also is a toy that takes a bit of time to clean so it's a good thing I like to take my time and have the time when I play with this toy. The batteries don't drain too quickly either. It has proved to be a great toy.

  • ~LaUr3n~
    No problem!
  • Fuck it.
    I hated this toy, but I'll give the way you use it a try.
    Mine didn't pass my shower/bath test at all. Did you have trouble with the vibrator not working if you closed the cap all of the way? I did. The little o-ring is the flimsiest I've ever seen, too.
  • ~LaUr3n~
    I read that you had that problem! No, not at all. I did have trouble getting it on a few times,but once closed all the way, it worked properly.

    Holy crap, 3-4 inches!!! I thought the Dazzle Me Vibe was large. Actually this really reminds me of it, just a different shape.
  • js250
    Sorry, did you measure all the way around or is the diameter actually 1.5" to 2.25 inches? I was just very shocked when I read the size..
  • ~LaUr3n~
    That's circumference that I have listed up there. AROUND.
