TCB Taking care of business - discreet massager by Cal Exotics - review by Dawn (Lilac Distraction)

Is that a tube of lipstick?

If you're a beginner looking for an ultra discreet vibe, the TCB may just be what you're looking for. It's cute and resembles a cosmetic tube. However, if you like powerful or rumbly vibrations, you may want to keep looking, as this vibe is super buzzy.
Discreet, great for beginners, AAA instead of watch batteries, nice color.

extremely useful review


The TCB Taking Care of Business vibe is a small, discreet, pocket-sized vibrator. It offers three speeds to help take care of your business. It would work best for beginners who are looking for something small and discreet. Advanced users may not find much use for this toy because of the lack of rumbly vibrations, small amount of uses, and overall buzziness.

This vibe is best for clitoral stimulation. It is long and wide enough to stimulate a wide area, but small enough so that the vibrations can be pinpointed during use. The size makes it useful during sex without it getting in the way of penetration. While it is elongated, it may not be the best for insertion, as it can only be inserted about 2 1/2"-3" and may not reach the G-spot. This vibe is not suitable for anal insertion, as it has no flared base and could easily get lost. The TCB can also be used for erogenous zone stimulation. It can be used just about anywhere as an external teaser.

The toy is waterproof, so it can be taken in the shower or bath. It is discreet enough for travel, and has a low noise level, so it is suitable for use behind a closed door.

Material / Texture

The TCB is made of PU coated plastic. It has a material safety rating of 7. PU coated plastic is compatible with water and silicone based lubricants, but should not be used with oil-based lubes.

The texture of this toy is very smooth, and slightly velvety. It has a nice amount of glide with very little drag to it. This is a great material choice for beginners who aren't quite sure what texture feels best for them. As with most plastic toys, it does not have any smell or taste to it.

Design / Shape / Size

This is one of the most discreet toys in my collection. It looks very much like a lipstick or other cosmetic tube. The button on the bottom of the toy is not raised or colored in any different way. It is more of an easy-touch button. The silver band around the toy makes it look even more like a cosmetic tube. The size also goes along with this theme very much. It is 4" long with a diameter of 3/4". Beginners who are looking for something that is ultra discreet will appreciate the design of this toy very much. It can be thrown into a purse without much worry. If someone were to catch sight of this, it may take them a little while to figure out what it is.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The TCB has three speeds. These are your basic high/medium/low settings. On mine, when it is switched on to low speed, it starts off at high and quickly jumps back down to low. I'm not sure if this is the case with all of them, and it should not cause any problems with use. The speeds are controlled by an easy touch button on the base. The button area is very flexible and easy to use.

The vibrations in this toy are very buzzy and not rumbly in the least. While great for beginners and those who appreciate lighter vibrations, experienced users may not take a liking to this toy because of this. Overall, the noise level is relatively low, so it won't be heard behind a closed door.

I have fully submerged this toy without any problems with it. The battery compartment, which holds one AAA battery, has an O-ring, which helps to keep it waterproof.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

Care of this toy is very simple. All it needs is an occasional bath. Wash it with toy cleaner, or mild soap and water. When not in use, be sure to remove the battery to extend battery and toy life. It can be stores just about anywhere you choose, because the material doesn't attract lint and dust like other materials are known for. If carrying in a purse or other similar location, I would suggest wrapping it in a plastic bag just to be safe.

As stated earlier, this vibe is compatible with silicone and water-based lubricants.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Personal comments

For me, this toy was more of a novelty item, as I am collecting blue toys. While it may not be the most functional vibe out there, it certainly is pretty and super discreet. If I ever have to travel and need something that's on the down low, I may go for this vibe. If not, I think I'll just keep it as a collection piece, cause it sure is cute.
Follow-up commentary
This is cute, but I don't think I have much of a use for it. It's not powerful enough for me. I do enjoy the color though. If I ever need something super discreet for travel, I may take this along, but probably not. This will just remain a collection piece for my blue collection.
