Not So Devoted

I mean, it is what it is, you know? There have been improvements to traditional vibes over the years but until we figure out some sort of new technology, it's only going to get so good. This is still a great choice if you aren't ready to invest in expensive toys just to find out what kind of patterns and vibrations you like.

Holy crap this thing is loud!

extremely useful review
The Body & Soul Devotion is a great vibrator if you can get past the noise levels. I'll just be up front about that, right now. This is not a toy for shared spaces where discretion is required. If you stand with your ear up against the door, you can hear the toy clear as the day is long.

This is what is known in the industry as a traditional vibrator. Traditional just means it's a straight-barrel vibrator with a single motor, often operated by batteries and can come in many different materials. This one happens to be PU coated plastic.

Unlike so many of my other traditional vibes, the control on this vibe is new to me - it's a horizontal button that is exactly the width of my index finger (half an inch). This allows you to change between functions quite easily. This also allows you to change the function without meaning to do so. To turn it off, simply hold for three consecutive seconds.

There are ten functions, the first three are various levels of pure vibration. The rest are pulse patterns ranging from short, heartbeat like pulses to long and strong vibrations with a three to five second delay between them. As I am not fond of patterns to begin with, the last seven are a waste for me and I simply stay on level three which is the strongest solid vibration of them all. It is actually stronger than the same setting on my Bedroom Kandi Happiness and Joy. However, it is no where near as comfortable to use or hold, as it is just a smaller vibe in general than the BKH&J.

The color is a fantastic metallic; if treated right and kept away from rough surfaces it will not scratch or chip. It requires 2 AA batteries. Both of which are easy to insert. I found I had to remove the slip of paper included (I normally don't do that) because it seemed to weaken the strength of the vibes and make the noise just this side of unbearable.

Aside from the noise and the fact that it's easy to switch between functions without meaning to, I actually like this vibrator more than my traditional silver bullet. For one, it's definitely stronger than that and for two it's easier to pin point where I want the vibrations just due to the tiny little point on the end.

It's also easy to thrust with in conjunction with another vibe on the clit as it doesn't interfere with the motions. The cost is also a selling point - neither too expensive or cheap, and it's a great way to find out what kind of functions and patterns along with the strength of those functions you prefer for a great orgasm.

This toy is waterproof and easy to clean. Any toy cleaner will do the trick as will soap and water. Any type of lube can be used with it, as well. Storing it is a breeze. You can keep it in your nightstand or toy box, but if you want to carry this around with you in your purse or bag, I suggest slipping it into a toy pouch. Because it's plastic, it's really up to you whether or not you would use condoms if you're using it on multiple people, but I would definitely recommend a thorough wipe down before focusing your attention on a new partner. If you wish to travel via plane with your new friend, remove the batteries and store them separately to avoid potentially embarrassing scenes when dealing with our lovely TSA officials.
It takes about ten minutes for me to get off with this vibe from clitoral stimulation alone, which is about average for me. Even less if there are multiple activities going down at once. I also really like to use this during oral, but it's not exactly the nicest thing to do to my husband - you know putting his ears so close to all that noise...but he'd do it if I wanted it badly enough. For now this is a toy I mostly use while I'm alone and it's not my first choice when I want that powerhouse orgasm I occasionally need. It's going to find a home in my drawer and live as my backup just in case one of my other favorites dies.

    It's cute but too loud for me. I think even if my living situation allowed for noise, I still wouldn't want something louder than 3 bees and that's pushing it there!

    I'm guessing the vibrations are buzzy and not deep/penetrative at all. I loved the color of this and had hoped Cal Exotics was stepping up from their typical cheap toys, but sounds like this new Body and Soul line is no different from everything else they've manufactured. Sad! I am sorry to hear this is loud. I read a review earlier on another of the Body and Soul vibes that said it was horridly loud. I guess that's to be expected with the rest of them as well. Sorry this wasn't the best vibe for you. I probably wouldn't get any use out of it, but that color sure is pretty. Thank you for sharing.

    @Kendra and Zombirella - it is so loud and I did forget to detail the buzz...I actually think the vibrations are the same as my EF egg, just not quite as deep if that makes any sense whatsoever.

    I used it this morning and got off but it's like meh that could have been better. You know?

    Too loud toys are such a buzz kill.

    I just reviewed this one and my fiance said it sounded like someone mowing the lawn! It would be so much better if it weren't so damn loud.

    Thanks for the review Stormy I hate hearing how loud this thing is, I mean I wouldn't buy for myself but I know people never know what kind of vibe to start with. Hopefully they try to improve them or something cause if it is a BEE of 4/5 from what I am seeing from reviews that is way to loud.
