Mini flex massager - vibrator kit by Cal Exotics - review by minnie

Great for a beginner like me!

Really great for someone who isn't sure about vibrating toys and wants to learn about their body. It was exactly the kind of low-key toy I was looking for, and because I'm a poor college student, the price was especially welcoming. It's probably not the most luxurious, top-knotch pocket rocket out there, but it does its job very well and has earned its place amongst my small toy collection. I have no real complaints.
excellent price, small, discreet, non-complex, non-intimidating, adequate vibrations
has a lot of nooks and crannies that may collect gunk, non-discreet packaging
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The packaging of the toy lists "scalp massage & revitalization," "pinpoint massaging of tired muscles," and "relieves general body fatigue" on the front and back of the cover, which I'm sure is vague and nonsexual for a reason. On Edenfantasys, the Mini Flex Massager is listed as a clitoral stimulator - and it definitely works for that purpose. Note that it could also be used to stimulate other parts of the body, such as the nipples. There's room to get creative with this toy.

The Mini Flex Massager isn't really intended for any sort of insertion, but it is somewhat phallic in shape. Vaginal use could be done if you really wanted to. However, it lacks a flared base, so it cannot be safely used for anal insertion.

This toy is good for solo play and couples. Its small size makes it relatively inconspicuous - although the sound level is definitely present if you're in the same room as this toy.

The packaging asserts that this toy is waterproof. While I did run it under the tap, I have not submerged it completely in water, but the battery compartment was absolutely dry under running water. There is a rubber ring surrounding the opening of the battery compartment that likely serves to block out moisture, and as far as I can tell, it does its job well.

Material / Texture

The massager is made of hard, smooth plastic and has no scent, as well as no taste.

The massager comes with three detachable and interchangeable plastic heads, which also lack smell, scent, and taste. One head is simply dome-shaped and smoothly rounded, while the other two are equipped with a nubbed or studded surface. The heads are meant to be fitted onto the stimulating end of the massager, and they fit snugly in place - you don't have to worry too much about them coming loose.

This is my first pocket rocket and the only toy I've ever tried for direct clitoral stimulation. I'm a little wary about using the studded heads, but the smooth one is much less intimidating to me.

The vibration intensity is only somewhat muffled when a head is attached. When there is no head, the massager possesses three small metal beads that deliver the vibrations. The beads are smooth and round, and again, lack any scent or taste.

Design / Shape / Size

Because I'm a beginner, the design is important to me. When I see a toy, I want to be able to figure out right away how that toy should be used without much thought. If I'm confused about how it works when I look at it, it's a turn-off. I'm also looking for toys that are simplistic in design and non-intimidating.

The Mini Flex Massager fit the bill for me. I can see easily how it should be used, and the size, in person and in the pictures, isn't very scary to me. It only comes in white, which is fine with me.

The massager is about four or five inches long. I use the bottom three inches as a handle and use the tip as a clitoral stimulator. I did try it out for vaginal penetration, but its short length and small circumference didn't do very much for me, even with the vibrations turned on. You can't do a whole lot of thrusting with this toy. This is probably best as a pinpoint stimulator than anything else.

Beginners and advanced users can work with this toy: beginners can use it to test out their personal level of sensitivity and just get used to toys in general. Advanced users who know what they're doing can use this toy for direct stimulation where they know they need it.

Because of its small size and humble appearance, I don't think it'll be hard to hide this toy under the mattress or in plain sight. Going under the guise of a "general massager," no one has to be clued in that it's used for sexual stimulation. I wouldn't be completely embarrassed if I accidentally left it out on my nightstand or on my desk and someone found it.

Its small size is also good for traveling. You can easily put it in your purse or go through the airport with it. Beware of using it when others are in the same room as you, however - this toy does make a little bit of noise, but it can't be heard behind a closed door.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This toy takes one AA battery. The vibrations are delivered through the tip of the toy, where the three metal beads are located. It only has one vibration speed, so people who like gradual intensity may not go for this toy. You have the option of exchanging the detachable heads, or going without one at all. The controls are dictacted by turning the bottom half of the toy. It clearly reads "OPEN" "OFF" and "ON." Turning it to OPEN makes the battery compartment pop open. OFF and ON are self-explanatory.

I was worried that the controls might be loose and very easy to turn - which would prove to be a hassle if you're turning or tilting the toy while you're using it. I've had vibrators before that operated by a turning knob at the end of the toy, and it completely killed the mood when I would accidentally slide the knob to OFF several times in the middle of a session. However, this isn't a problem with the Mini Flex Massager at all. The controls are snug and stay in place - you really have to turn it to move it, so don't worry about accidentally turning it off. You probably won't.

This toy does have somewhat of a noise level. It can be heard through bedsheets, but it's completely muffled by a closed door. If you're like me and you share the house with three other people, you can appreciate this toy.

I haven't tried it in the bathtub - playing in the water isn't really my thing, but I don't see why this toy couldn't perform in the water just as well as out of it. It is waterproof, and when placed under a running tap, the battery compartment stays dry. Nearly everything about this toy is snug and airtight. A running shower will definitely muffle the sounds of this toy.

I mainly bought this toy for its cheap price and its promising reviews. For $8.99, it's a pretty good bargain! I'm really looking forward to exploring myself with it in the future. I used it for clitoral stimulation, and I do think that the vibrations are pretty strong, but it may just be that I'm particularly sensitive because I'm a beginner. Other reviews have said that it didn't pack enough punch - but for its price, I definitely think that it does.

Again, it's a great beginner toy. It's not too complex and it's not too scary.

Care and Maintenance

Care for this toy shouldn't be too difficult. It can be washed with soap and warm water and the water won't damage it. The only difficulty may come from cleaning the attachable heads that bear studs, and the metal beads may catch gunk in between them, but it's nothing a q-tip can't fix.

I was confident that the detachable head would lock out anything from getting to the metal beads, but I was mistaken. I used a water-based lube in conjunction with it, and somehow, the lube got up inside the detachable head, which was a bit of an annoyance, but easily cleaned. Definitely remove all parts while cleaning to make sure you clean out all the nooks and crannies with this toy.

It doesn't come with any storage device, but it's so small that you could get away with just putting it under the mattress or leaving it out on the dresser. I recommend taking out the battery after each use - leaving the battery in any electrical device will slowly drain it.

The packaging is cheap and kind of amusing. It came in a plastic covering with a slip of paper inside, with a picture of a blonde woman in a bikini looking like she just stepped out of a porno. It reads a number of things like "WATERPROOF" and, of course, "CALIFORNIA EXOTIC NOVELTIES." When you get this in the mail, I wouldn't recommend opening it in the company of others - unless you want everyone to see Miss Bikini emerge and laugh with you about it. Or maybe at you.

The packaging is basically worthless. You can't really store the toy in it - it's too impractical. I tossed the packaging right away. It doesn't include an instruction manual or anything of the sort, but you probably don't really need one anyway. You may want to be a little discreet about how you throw it away. I wouldn't exactly put this in the family room garbage can where everyone can look down and see Miss Bikini.

Personal comments

Overall, I'm pleased with this toy. It wasn't a waste of money, and I have a feeling it's going to last a long time. It definitely packs enough punch for me, and it's helping me to learn a little more about what makes me tick, so to speak. Will definitely recommend this to anyone who asks.


I do recommend, for beginners, that you try to warm yourself up a bit first before you try this toy out. Otherwise, the vibrations might be startling if you're not sure what to expect. I tried to "get the motor running," first, if you'll pardon the euphemisms, before I brought this toy into action. I had to move gradually, because otherwise it was a huge wallop of sensations that I wasn't expecting. I haven't exactly climaxed with it yet, but I'm optimistic about the possibilities. It wouldn't hurt to use this toy in conjunction with another toy, say, a dildo, or even during sex. There's definitely some leeway to try different things out.
