Lovely Little Tryst

This toy is a great way to experiment with different feels and patterns for beginners and is a great way to expand your collection for advanced users. Without breaking the bank, this cute toy does it's job and has a lot more oomph than I was expecting. With the motor in the tip it's great for external play, I just wish I could feel the vibrations a bit better internally.

extremely useful review


This small, silicone vibrator has many uses, but it really is best at two of them. Externally, this toy has a nice, powerful motor at the tip. This makes it a wonderful toy to use for clitoral play, and the deep vibrations also add to the intensity of the focused vibrations.

When inserted, this toy is great for thrusting. Some may find it too flexible for g-spotting, but it really is all up to your personal preferences. It has no real curve to speak of, and the material makes it difficult to put pressure wherever you need it.

I would NOT recommend this for anal play at all. Even if you could comfortably insert this, the handle gets a bit slippery when lubed up and it features no flared base or retrieval cord. Unless you fancy danger and a possible trip to the ER, I would recommend perusing Eden's great selection of anal toys if you're wanting something along those lines.

Overall, I think that this would be a good toy for a couple to start out with. The non-phallic shape and the long 'shaft' would make this good to use during intercourse, and the flexible material would make it difficult to bruise your lover by getting too vigorous.

This toy passes Ryu's dorm seal of approval. The low noise level, the ease of hiding it, the easy to care for material, and the waterproof capabilities make this great if you have thin walls and fun to sneak into the public showers.

Material / Texture

This toy is made from a combination of silicone and plastic. Silicone is rated a 10 out of 10 on the Eden Safety Scale and plastic is rated an 8 out of 10. Along with normal maintenance, both of these materials can be wiped down with a 10% bleach solution in order to disinfect them.

Silicone makes up the entire shaft and insertable portion of this toy. While it has some drag to it, not a lot of lube is required to get it slick, if any at all. When used in the shower I found that no lube was needed, so it all depends on your preference and arousal.

The plastic base and buttons have no drag to them at all. No part of this had any scent or taste out of the package, and it has retained neither after time.

The silicone is very soft and flexible, which can be both a pro and a con. On one hand, it means that this toy is easy to use and thrust with. It's very difficult to bruise yourself or others with this toy, and it won't leave you feeling like it's incompatible with your body. On the other hand it's difficult to get pinpoint stimulation or to put much pressure with it at all, so it really depends on what works best for you.

I feel like both beginners and advanced users will appreciate the supple silicone this toy is made of. More advanced users who know what they like may want something more firm, but if you're just experimenting and don't know what shapes work well for you this toy is a safe bet.

Design / Shape / Size

I really like the shape of this toy, but wish that it was a bit firmer. The toy is a bit wider at the tip, and then narrows out towards the 'shaft' of the toy. This makes it great for those who don't like a lot of girth thrusting but like a more filling feel inside of them.

At 7 inches altogether and 5.25 of those insertable, this is a good 'average' sized vibrator. With a girth of about 3.5 inches around at the widest part, this isn't for those who want a large toy. If you're a size queen or like feeling 'stretched,' this toy won't leave you satisfied, but for most women it will be a fine fit.

The bulbed tip and ridges are more prominent when used externally rather than when it's inserted, and I think it's because of the soft material. While I can feel that it's larger in the tip when I focus on it, it isn't obvious.

While this doesn't scream "sex toy," there isn't much else that it could be. I would recommend stashing this away from guests with prying eyes, especially if they're not comfortable with sex toys. While this is a good travel vibe, it's a bit large. It's a fine toy to take on vacation and no airport security man will suspect it's a weapon or anything, but it's not the most travel-worthy sex toy that I've seen.

I would recommend the design and shape to anyone looking for a soft, basic toy that is easy to use. If you prefer firmer stimulation this may leave you wanting more, but both beginners and people who like plush, round toys will appreciate this one.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Something that I find that sets this toy apart from a lot of others is that the motor is very obviously in the tip. When you turn it on, barley any vibrations at all can be felt in the handle, and they're only a tiny bit stronger in the shaft and body of the toy. The vibrations are moderately deep.

The vibrations being in the tip, this toy is really great for external stimulation. The strong, focused vibrations are that of a larger toy, but they are close and in a great location to be used in a rather pinpoint way. Unfortunately, when inserted it is a bit harder to feel the strong vibrations because they don't travel very well inside me or through the toy.

There are two buttons on this toy, one that turns it off and on and one that controls and cycles through the 6 settings. When you press the power button the light turns on, but the settings don't initiate until you press the settings button. If you turn it off on a higher setting, it then returns to the lowest setting when you turn it back on.

The 6 settings are;
Pattern one (bbbbzzzzzBBBBBBZZZZZZZZ bbbbzzzzzzBBBBZZZZZ)
Pattern two (bbbZZZZZ bbbbbbZZZZ)
Pattern three (BZ BZ BZ BZ BZ)

The highest setting is a moderate 2 bees and 3 vrooms, and can't be heard through a door or over the sound of the shower. I like the patterns because of the moderately deep vibrations, but they aren't anything special when compared to toys with more variety. I used this in the shower and submerged it for cleaning and neither time did I find any water in the battery compartment.

Because of the functions, I highly recommend this toy to everyone. It's a great way to play around with functions if you haven't before, and the pinpoint tip makes it good for both internal and external stimulation. If you like a lot of oomph to your vibrators this may disappoint you, but I think that the average woman would be pleasantly surprised.

    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

The silicone and plastic of this toy make it super easy to care for. The toy itself can be washed regularly with an antibacterial toy cleaner, soap and water, or a toy wipe. If you plan to switch orifices (which I don't recommend anal use with this toy) or switch users, you can disinfect this toy with a 10% bleach solution. Because it does tend to collect lint, I recommend washing this toy both before and after every use.

I would not suggest storing silicone in contact with other silicone toys because the two materials can potentially react with eachother. For similar reasons, I would not recommend using silicone lube with this toy. I keep mine in a cool, dark place with the rest of my collection.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


This toy comes in a fairly flimsy plastic box. While it is fairly tasteful and has no naked women on it, it is pretty obvious what it contains. The front of the box is transparent and it gives enough basic information to know what you're getting into such as the batteries, functions, materials, and waterproof capabilities.

While you can store your toy in here, it is significantly larger than the vibrator itself. I wouldn't hesitate to wrap this and give it as a gift because the packaging is tasteful enough, but you can't leave it out on the counter and not get questions.

When I first took this out of the package, I admit to being skeptical about the flexibility and the power, but once I turned it on I changed my mind. Something about the placement of the motor really does it for me with this toy, and I especially like to use it externally in the shower.

While I CAN get this to hit my g-spot, it isn't the most effective toy I have. I wish that the vibrations were a bit easier to feel inside of me because that would easily bump this up to a 5 star toy, but I feel because of the muffled power when inserted this is a solid 4 stars.

The fourth setting also sounds like a ray gun, just sayin'. ;)
