Dr. Laura Berman Minerva - sex toy by Cal Exotics - review by Exlporer

Look no further

You'll never need another ring again. The Minerva is near perfect in all aspects, definitely THE best clit stimulator I have used, and gave me quite amazing stamina.
Build quality, near perfect design, strong vibe, excellent controller, works from many angles.
Can be slightly painful on the pelvic bone, can slip out of place.

Wow, what can I say about the Minerva? Let's start with the name - in another context, it is the name of the best piece of gear a woman can use, and that theme carries over to this ring.

My wife and I have been searching for a ring that would accomplish two things - clitoral stimulation and a bit of delaying for me to last a bit longer. I have reviews of a few other rings in the works or posted already, but after the Minerva I won't need to look anymore as it does everything we want, and then some!

The battery pack is well built, runs on 4 AAAs, and has enough combos of settings that you'll never get bored. The vibration goes from subtle to very strong. It comes in a nice box with a translucent storage pouch, nice for not getting cables tangled in your stash box.

The ring itself is tight without being too tight, a perfect balance for me. It is slightly less comfortable than others, being a bit less stretchy than most. It definitely had me lasting longer, but we'll get to that.

The bullet is in a word, amazing. It is a hard egg shape, with a layer of textured silicone over it. One of the slight drawbacks to the Minerva stems from this fact - if your lady likes it much as mine, she will want to grind it hard, and it doesn't give way. It kind of digs into your pelvic bone, and can be a bit painful. If you are like me, the screams of pleasure coming from your lady will make you forget about that pretty quick though. It stays pretty quiet until you hit the uppermost levels, when it can be a bit buzzy. Again, your lady will be grinding on it so hard, no one will hear it unless they are in the room with you.

The other minor drawback is that it can slip out of place if you don't keep pretty constant pressure on it.

Being TPR silicone, it cleans up easily with toy cleaner and water, and takes water based lubes very well. (It is not safe to share, and no silicone based lubes please!)
OK, we got a big box of toys from Edenfantasy this week, and the Minerva was low on our list of priorities. We didn't try it until tonight. We weren't going for an epic marathon event, just a nice going-to-sleep kind of thing. We decided to slap on the Minerva....

4 orgasms later, my wife was practically crying from pleasure, and I had not come yet. We did several positions, all of which lent themselves to the Minerva, surprisingly even the backwards positions worked amazingly well with the Minerva flipped around to match the clit.

The build up to my orgasm was more intense than most full fledged orgasms I have had. The actual event was mind numbing. My wife had her fifth orgasm while I had what was most definitely THE best orgasm I have ever had in my 20+ years of sexual activity.

I don't know if it's ALL the Minerva, since I started some muscle and control training recently, but I can say that I have NEVER had an orgasm like that, and I have NEVER made the wife orgasm with a 5:1 ratio to myself.

The Minerva is now our #1 ring, the only one we will need.
Follow-up commentary
Almost 2 years later, and we still love this thing. I have had to repair the cable twice. The motor is still as strong as the day we got it, and it does surprisingly well on batteries. The ring has not cracked or broken in anyway. We have also discovered that many different bullet vibe covers can fit over it with a bit of lube to help out so you can get different textures and shapes happening.

    Thanks for the honest review. It seems vibrating cock rings are really hit or miss and it sounds like this one was a hit for you.

    One note: Eden lists this product as being TPR silicone, rather than silicone. This means it cannot be safely shared.

    Does the bullet come out of TPR casing for cleaning?
  • Exlporer
    Thanks for the heads up on TPR, will edit to reflect that.

    The bullet does not come out of the sleeve, but it is sealed very well so the bullet itself wont get dirty. The manual reccomends that you do not submerge it, but regular cleaning with water and toy cleaner or antibacterial soap are fine.
