Brilliant idea - Flawed Design

The Pleasure Dot would be great for a single or couple trying to round out their sex toy collection with an affordable foreplay-only toy. It would also be great for a single or couple that is new to sex toys that wants to get used to the vibrating or pulsating sensation. But if you're looking for a strong, versatile, orgasm-fetching toy, this one is not for you.
The black rubber feels and works great as a massager in many areas. The price is very reasonable.
Many design flaws in this toy- can be turned off accidentally, very loud, not versatile.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
I was initially drawn to the Pleasure Dot (which I chose in blue) for its unusual and interesting form. It's not one of those toys that looks just like everything else in its category.

The Pleasure dot is 8 inches long overall. It includes a 5.5 inch handle that includes the battery cover and on/off control and 2.5 inch rounded head. The majority of the toy is made of hard plastic but there is a round of black rubber that has a little give to it on the rounded face of the top. I'm not sure I'd call it one of my most attractive toys, but it's definitely one of the most interesting and unique looking.

It runs on 2 AA batteries and has shown good battery longevity in my experience. It also features 3 different functions. There are two vibration functions, one faster than the other, and a pulsating function as well. The low vibration did nothing for me, but the high vibration and pulsating functions were quite pleasurable. The vibration speeds and the pulsation were also steady and consistent every time I've used the toy.

In order to use this toy you need to press on or squeeze the hard plastic battery cover on the handle which is a little over 3 inches long and 2.5 inches across at its widest point. Each time you squeeze it turns to another of the 3 functions or to off. While this is again, innovative to an extent, it is also fairly impractical in my experience. While I was using this toy, at the times it was really starting to feel good, I had a tendency to tighten my grip on the handle which would either turn the toy off or change the function. I attempted to hold the toy at the very end (about 1" left beyond battery cover) but that left me with very little control over the toy and it wasn't comfortable at all. It seems like the on/off/change function switch could have been put elsewhere to avoid this issue.

As far as actually using the toy, the black rubber dot really did work well for me. It's smooth and has just enough give to make it very comfortable while still strong. On the high vibration or pulsing function, it was great for running along my thighs or outer areas with or without a little bit of lube. It also felt amazing to use as a massager up against my clit or the opening of my vagina. Unfortunately the toy has no insertable portion and really no other surface to use for the vibrations. It is possible to simply turn the toy around and use the back of the head but it's large, somewhat flat, and made of hard plastic which equals very uncomfortable and fairly useless in my book.

This toy is also not waterproof since the plastic cover is so large and has no rubber seal and simply snaps into place with a small plastic tension catch. It is also VERY loud and could easily be heard from another room even with the door closed. Because it is plastic and rubber it can be cleaned with antibacterial soap and dried with a towel without leaving fuzziness behind but again, you have to be careful because of the way the battery compartment is designed. It does not, however, have any noticeable smell and can easily be stored among other clean dry toys without an issue.

Overall, I think this toy is really great in theory. While it wasn't strong or versatile enough to make me orgasm, it worked great as a massager and was fantastic for one-person and partner foreplay and great for teasing. It's difficult to use in any position besides lying down because of the width of the head and design of the handle though so it's best for use at home. And for the price, it's might not hurt to add it to a well-rounded toy collection simply for foreplay use.

I think that if the manufacturers took a second look at the battery compartment, unnecessary length, and on/off switch, it could be redesigned to create an amazing and innovative toy. It also seems to be kind of wasteful to have the back of the head of the toy be useless...if that was reshaped or covered in a 3rd material it would add a lot of versatility to the toy.
This is an amazing toy for foreplay but don't expect too much more out of it. It is a multi-function toy but due to its size and shape, the usage of the toy is fairly limited. Also, it's a too easy to accidentally turn off just when you're starting to feel good.
Follow-up commentary
I've simply stopped using this toy. Its design flaws have put it at the 'bottom of the barrel' to so say - and my barrel is full of much better toys.

    Excellent review! It sounds like the controls could definitely use some tweaking.
  • Sammi
    I think these look really cool - too bad it doesn't work better.
    Nice review!
  • Adriana Ravenlust
    Whoa - the pic with both colours reminds me of Eve from Wall-E. LOL

    Very nice review!

    So in other words, since you grew tired of it after only 3 weeks...not worth buying at all lol.

    Not really. I was initially so intrigued by the design and how different it was but with the flaw of it being so easily switched off mid-use I no longer want to waste my time with it. It would be an amazing toy if they could fix a few things though!
