Dr. Laura Berman Pomona massager - clitoral vibrator by Cal Exotics - review by oopsy

Add resource

Not Medically Recommended.

This clit vibrator is well designed and well built, but the motor produces unpleasantly intense vibrations and only has two settings: High and Somewhat Higher.
Small, great design, cute, nice texture, easy to use.
Busy, high pitched vibrations, not relaxing, only two settings, loud.

useful review


This is an external clitoral vibrator that is designed to require little pressure or movement, yet is versatile enough to be used in many ways. It's a good beginners vibe and is great for a small budget. It would make a good gift for a first timer as well because it's so cute and faux 'medically' recommended. It gets the job done, but it's so blatantly simple to use and boring in features, I wouldn't look at it for an addition to a collection, but rather a gift, or a first toy. It can be used solo, or with a special someone! I found it worked better for muscle relief rather than actual clit vibration---because it was so powerful, I thought it was kind of numbing for more sensitive areas.

Material / Texture

It is made out of hard plastic with the exception of the very tip and at the rounded wide part under the controls. These parts are a rubbery, tacky softer material. This is also where the most contact with the clit occurs so it's a very thoughtful design. The hard plastic has a velvety texture and the rubber bits are squishy and tacky feeling. It's made out of TPR and plastic, so if you for some reason do use lube with it, use only water or silicone based lubes. There is no smell and it is not porous.
    • No odor
    • Smooth
    • Sticky

Design / Shape / Size

It is a standard clit design. Curved to fit right snug along your body. It also can be used for breast stimulation, or stimulation anywhere really. It's small and easily fits in your hand if you want more control when using it. It can also be worn inside panties if you wanted to do that, but it is a bit noisy to wear out. The button is right on the back, but low enough that it's easy to use without getting in the way.
    • Beginner
    • Whimsical / artistic

Functions / Performance / Controls

Easy as can be to control! One button! Press it once to turn on low, and press it again to turn to high, then a third time will turn it off. Admittedly, there isn't much difference between low and high in my opinion and both feel buzzy and a little too intense. The button is pretty sensitive, which is great if you have roommates and need to turn it off quick, it's also located out of the way of where you hand goes enough that you can't accidentally hit it in a crucial moment.
    • Easy to use
    • Not enough variety
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

This toy is not waterproof. It takes two Aaa batteries and it keeps battery life pretty well. It has a little battery cap so they can be taken in and out easily and even stored in the box with the toy if you want. I recommend always taking the batteries out after use, to prolong toy and battery life. The softer bits do tend to attract hair and lint, so storing in a bag or box on its own is probably best for keeping it clean.

It is made out of TPR and plastic so it is fairly safe material, just avoid oil based lubes, stick to water and silicone based. For cleaning, just use toy cleaner or some warm water and soap on a cloth and wipe it off. It's fairly easy. Storage is easy because it it pretty small and the button is hard to accidentally set off.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


Fantastically humorous pictures on the box of the Doctor herself. It's a nice sturdy box that is great for storage after use. It's cardboard, so if you want to get rid of it it's recycleable or disposable, it is not discreet at all however.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet
    • Very informative
Follow-up commentary
This is still a great toy that I use when I'm in a mood for a tease or for a little relaxation, but overall, it's just not strong enough to get me there. I think after more use, I'd lower the vroom to 3 out of 5. I think the motor has lost a bit or power. Still a great toy, but if you're used to a bit more umph, this one might be a let down.

    how was the size? did it fit well in your hand? how did it fit down stairs?
  • oopsy
    It's about the size of the palm of your hand. About 4 inches long and 2.5 wide. It's small and compact and works well for spot pressure, but because it's so small, it isn't really totally covering.
