Classic G-spot vibrator by Extase

Fancy YES, Vrooms NO

If you like tons of vibrations, I would not recommend this. The only good thing I found out with this was that it is super easy to hide and travel with.

extremely useful review


The Extase La Metropole is a very sleek and fancy little vibrator that I thought I would be super ecstatic to own. I was wrong on that one. For me, the best use for this little vibe is clitoral stimulation only. This toy can be used solo or with a partner, and you can also use this for sensory play for teasing your nipples or your partner's testicles. I used this with a former partner as a part of our foreplay session. He used it on me while fingering me, and I used it to stimulate his testicles while giving him a blowjob. Slowly, this became one of those items that was pricey but still laid in the drawer or on the headboard cause I just wasn't turned on by it. The last time this was used was about 6 months ago when I was on the road for work. I tossed this in my bag since it is very discreet and can be used even when my co-driver was in front driving.

This is toy is mainly for use outside the body since there is a very short insertable length. This is NOT a safe toy for anal play! There is no flared base, nor a handle, so please don't insert this anally.

Material / Texture

The Extase La Metropole has absolutely no texture whatsoever. This is a very sleek and smooth vibe which would be good for someone who wasn't sure if they would like texture or not. When I opened my Extase La Metropole, there was no kind of noticeable odor, which is always a plus when getting a new toy. Who likes smelly toys? I know I don't. Advanced users and beginners alike can use this little vibe.

According the Eden's material safety chart this rates an 8, being made of plastic & aluminum.

The white part of this item is made of plastic, which is non-porous, phthalate-free and usually smooth in texture.

The colored part of this item is made of aluminum and doesn't contain chemicals like latex or phthalates. Smooth to the touch, just the same as the upper part of the vibe.
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

While the design is stylish and sleek, it personally didn't do much for me. It is easy to hold and position while in use, by yourself or your partner. There is a curve towards the top that could be used for G-Spot stimulation. For me, that didn't work, but it very well could work for you.

This is VERY tiny and you could loose it very easy if you don't put it back in the box it came in, or the case.

Measuring in at:
Length: 4 1/2 inches
Insertable Length: 2 inches
Circumference: 2 1/2 inches
Diameter: 3/4 inch
Weight: 6.5oz

I would say this is a very discreet item since it is less then 6 inches long, and you can hide it pretty quickly if you needed to. The little black carrying case that came with it comes in handy. If you like taking a toy on to go with you for spontaneous moments, you can toss this in your purse. The carrying case feels like a suede type of material, and collects lint and animal hair fairly easy.

The Extase La Metropole is very travel friendly, just remember to take your battery out. I took this over the road with me when I was doing trucking. It was easy to keep in my bag and easy to hide if my co-driver opened the bunk curtains while I was in the middle of pleasuring myself.

Functions / Performance / Controls

To control the Extase La Metropole, you would push the little, single button on the base of the vibe. Hold the button down for 4 seconds and it should come on; you will know that it is on when the bottom lights up. To change patterns or speeds, you would simply push the button once to change the setting, and press multiple times to find the right setting you want. To turn your toy off, you would hold the button down for a few seconds, and you will know it is turning off when the LED light on the bottom flashes. The LED light works as a battery indicator as well: if it flashes 3 times you have a fully powered battery, flashing 2 times means you are working with half the power, and if it flashes 1 time it is time to replace your battery for more fun. No matter what, when you turn off your Extase La Metropole and turn it back on, it will start at the lowest setting.

The controls are easy to use, and the button is firm so you do have to apply a little pressure, but not much. Since it is not touchy, you are less likely to change speeds by accident while in use.

Vibrations can be felt throughout the whole toy, but they are mainly in the tip or the plastic part. The vibrations that are felt throughout the toy aren't enough to numb your hands while in use. There are FIVE settings, from steady vibrations right up to pulsating and escalating.

The Extase La Metropole is splash proof, which means you can get moisture on it but you can't submerge it in water.

Noise Level
For me personally, I couldn't hear the vibrator being used, even when it was just me using it. I would say that this has a buzz rating of 1. I have used this under covers, and inside my shorts while under the covers, and wasn't able to hear it being on.

Power Source
Unlike most small vibrators that take button batteries or the N-1 batteries, the Extase La Metropole takes 1AA battery, which most of us have in our homes already, so no need to order special batteries for this. The battery seems to last for a few hours, so it really isn't a battery guzzler.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

Extase La Metropole is very easy to care for with it being made of plastic and aluminum. You can simply spray this down with a toy cleaner of your choice and wipe clean. You could also use warm water and soap if you wish; just take the battery out before doing so and make sure not to submerge your toy into the water.

This is very simple toy to store. There are two ways that I have stored my Extase La Metopole. One way was just in the carrying pouch, and I would either leave it on my headboard when I was home, or in my bag when I was on the road. The other way, which is how it is being stored right now, is in the box it came in, hidden away in a drawer with my other sex toys.

Lube Compatibility
Plastic is compatible with all lubes: water based, silicone, and oil based! So just grab your favorite lube and have some fun.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


Extase La Metropole came in a very sturdy box that was wrapped in shrink wrap. Packaging isn't discreet at all, and you know what you are getting just as soon as you pull the box out. There is a picture of the vibe right on the front of the box. When you open the package, you will reveal the fancy little vibe, and if you remove the foam insert, you will find the instructions and carrying case.

You can use the box for gift giving if you want to, but I wouldn't give it to someone in front of a large group of people.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet


My opinion of this was that there wasn't enough vibrations or length. With the curve at the top, you would think of G-Spot stimulation, but that would be wrong. As for me, it wasn't long enough to do anything, let alone provide enough vibrations.
Follow-up commentary
With this being a medium quality toy I had more hope for it. It did get to a point where I as able to orgasm but nothing too mind blowing like I prefer to get. While this is still hanging around in my collection it doesn't get any use from me. While it may work for those who prefer less intense vibrations it doesn't work for me as I prefer deep rumbly vibes such as Salsa.
