take me to Calypso Beach

I find the texture of Calypso delightfully stimulating. The clitoral vibrator is an exciting change from my other textured vibrators. I love the pleasurable and powerful functions. These functions are a nice change of patterns from a standard multifunctional vibrator. I'm thoroughly enjoying my new BFF Calypso clitoral vibrator! I'd love to find a vibrator like this for g-spotting - oh my...
great texture; 7 functions; powerful; ergonomic; whimsical & discreet
handle rattles slightly at certain angles but easily resolved by a slight change in angle

extremely useful review


Dr. Laura Berman's Calypso from California Exotics is a unique clitoral vibrator. It has several features that makes it unique. Some of these unique features include the texture, 7 functions, multiple speeds, and ergonomic design. Find sensual gratification in satisfying yourself or use during titallating foreplay.

Other erogenous areas are also options for pleasurable arousal. Enjoy the exciting stimulation Calypso offers as long as you don't use in or near water. It's quiet, while at the same time quite powerful. All this in a compact and discreet vibrator that looks like a small hairbrush that's perfectly sized for a handbag. And just a note about the head. It is long enough to reach from clit to anus covering a large area of pleasure zones - YES!

This is the perfect vibrator for texture lovers. Well, actually, any level of experience user can find exquisite pleasure with Calypso clitoral vibrator. It's just a matter of how much pressure you apply with it on your body. In fact, I think it's a great introduction to texture vibrators for anyone because you control how much applied contact it has with your body. You are in control.

Material / Texture

Calypso is made from several materials. The main body is made of a hard plastic, ABS. The plastic is coated with PU Cote. Both these materials are of the highest quality and fall within the highest range of safety materials ratings. There is no odor or taste to any part of the vibrator. The hard plastic is rigid and non-toxic, phthalates free, and non-porous. Vibrations travel well through it also. Calypso clitoral vibrator glides easily across my skin. It feels so silky and velvety to the touch. And it has a matte finish appearance.

The nubs on the head of Calypso are made of silicone. Silicone is known to be the highest quality of sex toy materials. It is also the safest sex toy material. It's hygienic, non-toxic, phthalates free, latex free, hypoallergenic, and non-porous. The silicone nubs, in contrast to the main body of the vibrator, are soft, flexible, and easily fan out. The nubby head is quite a unique feature that any seasoned user can enjoy. Unless you are ready for intense texture, I recommend you find another vibrator. The texture of the nubs creates a bit of a drag, pull across my skin, but nothing that a little lube couldn't take care of.
    • Highly textured
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

Calypso is an interesting design combination of a curved massager with a textured head that resembles a hairbrush. It's a compact clitoral vibrator that can bring you scintillating pleasure. And it's very discreet. If anyone were to see it they would just think it's a hairbrush with very short bristles.

Ergonomically designed, Calypso it so easy to maneuver across your body. I find the handle has just the right weight balance. It fits right in the palm of my hand allowing for a good grasp. I have even clasped my fingers around the head and neck which gives me a different angle for gliding the clitoral vibrator across my body. At other times I also lightly hold the end of the handle with just my fingertips creating a lighter touch with Calypso.

The head is an elongated oval which is narrower than the handle. From the head, Calypso flows into a slimmer neck. Then the neck flows into a wider handle which is about 1/2 the total length of the clitoral vibrator. The shape of the head is a smaller size version of the size of the handle actually.

The dimensions of the curved vibrater are as follows:
Overall Length: 7"
Head Length: 3"
Head Width: 1 1/2"
Handle Width: 2"

At just about the lower 1/3 of the Calypso handle is the battery cap. Holding the clitoral vibrator upside-down with the back facing you, using your thumbs, push forward on the cap, pushing it away from you. The cap pops off the battery compartment allowing you to insert 2 AA batteries. The cap snaps back on without any twisting necessary.
    • Discreet look/design
    • Ergonomic
    • Whimsical / artistic

Functions / Performance / Controls

The 7 functions of Calypso are one of the other unique features. There are multiple speeds of vibrating, pulsating, and escalating. And there are combinations of these vibrations creating intense and powerful patterns. I found all the pulsating vibrations to be rumbly.

The functions are as follows:

1. Vibrating
2. Pulsating
3. Pulsating Low>Escalating Vibrating
4. Surging
5. Vibrating High>Medium>Low>Medium>High Repeating Pattern
6. Pulsating Bursts
7. Pulsating Low>Vibrating High Pattern

The control for the quiet Calypso vibrations is on the top of the handle near the neck. You will need to cycle through each function in sequence to find the pattern you most enjoy with a simple push of the raised button. Who knows, you just may enjoy all of them. There's enough variety that there is something to please everybody

Holding the power button down for 3 seconds powers the vibrator off. When powering it back on, the vibrations begin with #1, vibrating. The one thing I don't care for is how strong the vibrations are in the handle. However, stronger vibrations are felt in the head. I like the raised power button. It's so much easier to press than depressed buttons. The only thing I found I didn't care for was a slight rattle in the handle. It is easily resolved, though, with a slight change of angle.
    • Discreet sound
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

Care for Calypso is simple. Wash with warm soapy water taking care to not get it wet near the battery cap. Or you can use your favorite toy cleaner Then let air dry. Be sure to thoroughly clean between the nubs. Do not use silicone lube since it can cause a breakdown of the silicone nubs. Waterbased lube is best to use. Store it separately from other toy materials that may melt onto or cause discoloration of Calypso as a result of materials interaction. I just eliminate any need for these concerns by storing all my toys individually in a pouch or baggie.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
Follow-up commentary
I still like Calypso, most of all for the vibrating texture. It may be a bit too much texture for those new to texture. But texture lovers, like myself, will love it. I think it's so cool how discreet it is. It looks like a small hairbrush. I've yet to get any questions about it when I've not put it away before someone can see it. The handle can still rattle a bit when held a certain way. But I just adjust it's position to stop the noise. I have discovered slightly inserting it vaginally and find the texture easily felt when thrusting. It is my most favorite textured clitoral vibrator. Too bad it's been discontinued since it's the only textured vibrator of this kind. Maybe we can repeatedly ask EF to bring it back so many others can enjoy it.
