First time G-spot tulip - classic g-spot vibrator by Cal Exotics - review by Kitka

Add resource

Affordable, Cute and Useless

The First Time G-spot Tulip by California Exotics is worth a try if you can ignore the seam and the fact that it is not actually very waterproof. Beyond that this toy is pretty powerful vibration wise and it is a little on the loud side but covering up the sound with some music or something would probably help.
+Powerful vibrations
+G-spot design
+Beginner friendly
-Huge seam
-Useless "waterproofing" ring
-Buzzy vibrations

extremely useful review


The First Time G-spot Tulip by California Exotics is best used as a g-spotting vibrator for the ladies. Anal use is possible if you cover it first with a condom to keep bacteria, etc. out of the large seam that runs the entire length of the toy. That being said, some men may get some use out of this for p-spotting but sadly it only comes in two girly colors. This toy can also be used on other body parts like nipples, clits, penis heads and other external erogenous zones.

This is a great beginner's toy from the standpoint that it is easy to use, not too large in overall size and very affordable. However, hopefully said beginners know to clean this toy thoroughly, say using an old toothbrush on the seam, so that they don't cause themselves infections. Conversely, size queens just will not be happy with this toy because of its small size. Also, if your g-spot prefers a softer material and something less rounded you may want to look for something else.

The g-spot tulip is also waterproof which makes it a great toy for shower and bath time play or just some easy clean up. The little rubber ring around the battery compartment is there to seal out the water that would otherwise get inside the toy during water play or washing.

If you decide to share this toy with anyone it is recommended to cover it with a condom to ensure you are not swapping bacteria or other "baddies" with someone.

This toy is best used during a solo session but it can be manipulated by a partner to increase the enjoyment you would get from using it. Just be sure you communicate the best ways to use it with your partner before starting to avoid accidental bruising, etc. if thrusted too hard.

Material / Texture

The First Time G-spot Tulip is made from PU coated plastic which has a safety rating of 7/10 on the Eden safety scale. It is food-grade material, hypo-allergenic and latex- and phthalates-free however it is somewhat porous.

The material feels very smooth and velvety while being also very rigid and matte in finish. It comes in pink and purple pastel shades which are cute but may be too girly for some folks. There was no overpowering odor upon opening the package but it does grab on skin a bit so using water based and silicone lubricants will most likely be necessary.

The seam cannot really be felt during use but it is pretty large and should be taken into consideration before purchasing, especially if you are very sensitive to seams on toys.
    • Rigid
    • Smooth
    • Somewhat porous

Design / Shape / Size

The G-spot Tulip is a long slender-shafted vibrator with a large rounded, oval head that is set at an angle by the slightly curved end of the shaft. The other end of the shaft has the battery cap and a dial base that turns the toy on/off and turns up/down the vibrations. There is a very noticeable seam running the entire length of the shaft, up around the head and down the other side of the shaft. This seam is also very noticeable if you look inside the battery compartment and it may lead to leaking of water if the toy is submerged for any amount of time.

Measurements are as follows:
8" long, 6 3/4" insertable
4 1/4" in circumference, 1 1/4" in diameter

This toy doesn't weight much at all so there's no worrying about tiring out your hand during use.

    • Ergonomic

Functions / Performance / Controls

The dial base on the bottom end of the shaft is how you control this toy. Just put the two AA batteries in the battery compartment, close the lid and tightly screw closed. Turn the dial control and on goes the vibrations in a steady low setting. Keep turning the dial base to turn up the vibrations until you reach the highest setting. Its vibrations are pretty powerful but very buzzy meaning a lot of people will not enjoy this toy.

This toy will definitely be heard through blankets but not through a closed door so dorm use is possible if you get alone time in your room. The controls are not lockable for travel and the dial base can be easily turned so removing the batteries before packing this away is required to avoid embarrassing vibrating luggage.
    • Easy to use
    • Not enough variety
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

Clean up with the G-spot Tulip is simple, just wash with warm water and antibacterial soap or toy cleaner paying special attention to the seam. If any water gets in the battery compartment, just roll up a paper towel, length-wise, and feed it into the empty compartment. Wiggle it around a bunch and it should do a fairly good job of soaking up the water.

There was no storage pouch included with this toy but you could just store it with other toys in a drawer, toy box or wherever else you keep your toys.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The First Time G-spot Tulip came packaged in a clear plastic clamshell with a single insert that displays the name of the toy, the Cal Exotics logo and some key points about the toy on the front along with a blonde's face up in the top hand corner. The back of the insert gives a little more information about the toy and has a photo of it on it.

The packaging is minimal and not discreet at all so it should be recycled when empty and wrapped if gifting it to someone.

Personal comments

What a waste of money this toy was, have to say I'm not satisfied with this purchase at all.


Honestly I had high hopes for this toy and it just let me down terribly. The material was okay and so was the shape but the large seam running along the entire thing seems to defeat the purpose of this toy having a rubber ring and trying to make it "waterproof".

Needless to say water got inside the battery compartment no matter what I tried and it just made me so angry that I ended up tossing this in the garbage. Normally I will give a toy like this another chance but it was just so frustrating trying to get this cleaned while water was getting inside it everywhere.
Follow-up commentary
I obviously never liked this toy and it hit the garbage can faster than anything I've ever owned before. Unfortunately the design is just terrible and not worth the price.

    Thanks for the review! My first thought when I saw the line that runs through it was "that can't be sanitary or waterproof" and you confirmed it!
