Tera Patrick's pulsating heart - strap-on vibrator by Cal Exotics - review by AverageJoe

Great overall product, one big drawback.

The scent is a good balance, vibration is powerful enough but not super noisy. Overall the product GREAT in theory, but only 'good' in practice strictly due to the fragile nature of the strap setup... if they fixed that it would be a top notch toy.

This is a product I reviewed only briefly and wanted to come back and put in a more complete and official review.

I wanted to find a strap on (hands free) clitoral vibrator that could be used during intercourse. After quite a bit of looking around I decided on this vibrator to try with my partner. First of all, let me say check your prices. I mistakenly bought this from a walk in store and paid almost $70 for it. Here at Eden your going to pay maybe a little more then half that. Shame on me for not coming to Eden Sad face I also always look for devices that take pretty standard batteries and this one takes your normal AA type. While a necessary evil in some devices that are small or 'hands free' I dislike having to purchase (and burn through) tiny batteries (like the watch batteries).

Normally I shy away from scented objects. The product has a slight cherry smell, but it is not overpowering by any means (or even really all that noticeable unless fairly up close). The benefit to that however is that it DOES NOT smell like other toys sometimes can. A big plus in my opinion and the balance works well with this product. Thumbs up on this aspect.

One of the buttons on the actual strap was broken when I unpacked it, but that was easily fixed with a little superglue (Note: This was on the black fabric strap...I wouldn't try using superglue on the actual soft part of the device!).

Having to strap the item on does seem like it would minutely hamper an 'intimate' experience... but then if you're in for an evenings long lasting and varied play it might just be a turn on for her and it's not like if you're putting one of these on you're going for an 'innocent' night of tame play with a shy first time girl. I actually got a bit of a kick out of the first time use because she was blindfolded and didn't quite know what was coming (although I'm sure she had a slight idea).

As I've seen stated in other reviews it really was very effective and somewhat quiet. While it is not the most silent device there are far more noisy ones out there. It definitely enhanced her pleasure of the overall session, however after just one session of only mildly vigorous use three of the four strap loops had broken. Now, she is pretty average as far as size, by no means a large girl she's not one of those bony sticks either - figure in the 6 size range. This leads me to believe, while an excellent idea and very effective, you might as well pick up something that either has a more durable fastening setup (such as the "Interactives Mini Dolphin" or "Remote Control Butterfly" - unfortunately I'd have to see how well these work during intercourse) or a hand held device.

We also had to slightly adjust its location a couple times. Not unusual, but again a drawback of the 'hands free' feature and also a slight additional drawback to the actual strap setup on this particular toy. I will have to try one or two others and see how they compare.

If I could I'd give it a 3 1/2 stars, because she did completely enjoy the sensations while we had intercourse, but the durability just isn't there.
Experience
It takes a little tinkering to get it on and does need some slight adjustment during play and, as I mentioned, be prepared for those loop holes to give pretty quickly unfortunately. At least the product is still usable, if now as a 'hands on' device.

The settings seem to cover all the bases fairly well too, while many of us have specific preferences, as we all know, different strokes for different folks! It's good to have them all in one package.

    I don't generally think a toy which is broken straight off is very good. The smaller size does seem like it would work well during intercourse.

    How many vibration settings are there? Any pulsation or anything?
  • AverageJoe
    You've got three levels of constant vibration, a quick short pulsating mode, escalating (slowly ramps up and back) and a lengthier version of the pulsating mode called 'surging'.

    Most my experience with toys tells me that the constant vibration is probably the most used... it would be interesting to see if they could come up with a 'random' pulse as the unknown timing and resulting expectation would seem to have more of an effect then a predictable pulse.

    Does this toy get in the way of intercourse? Or is it thin enough that it can be ignored for the most part? Nice review.
