Now I Know Why it's Called a Teaser

This discreetly sized toy sure does pack a punch in its vibration strength. Although it was unsuccessful at reaching my climax by itself, I do think that it is great for foreplay and is a fun little toy to bring to the bedroom. It is very beginner friendly for it has only one control: fast or faster! It's easy to clean and is a pretty low maintenance toy. Beware that it is a loud little fella!

extremely useful review


Being new to the sex toy industry, I find myelf very curious about all sorts of toys. I got this turbo teaser as my first asignment, and as my first bullet, so needless to say I was very excited when it arrived in the mail. I was hoping on receiving some kind of earth shaking bullet, but was disappointed to find myself so frustrated that I needed to finish the job with my other vibe.

The turbo teaser is an amazing teaser, but keep in mind it is just that, a TEASER. It is versatile in its many uses, and if you want to talk about power, this little guy pack a punch in its vibation strenghth. I'm talking about the kind of vibrations that leaves your hand with that tickled feeling. These kinds of vibrations are great for both clitoral and vaginal FOREPLAY. Though, due to the teasers rounded head, pinpoint clitoral stimulation just was not happening for me.

Vaginal stimulation, on the other hand worked out fine. The turbo was able to get my juices flowing simply by teasing the vaginal area. Although the teaser has a chord attached to it, I was a little hesatant to insert the teaser too far for fear that its powerful vibrations would allow the egg to shimmer its way into the deep dark depth of no return. As a side note, I did not find the teaser very comftorable for nipple stimulation; its vibrations were just too overpowering for this area.

The teaser is great when used simply for foreplay or in conjunction with other toys. I found it impossile to reach my climax even with clit stimulation, which has never been a problem for me. With that said, if you're looking for a bullet that's going to blow your socks off, I recommend looking somewhere else. BUT, if you are looking for a powerful bullet to get your juices flowing and leave your hand tingling with vibration this just may be the toy your looking for.

Material / Texture

California Exotic's Lightened Shimmers Turbo Teaser looks as though it is a metal bullet with its silver coating, though it is simply plastic. This makes the teaser flexible in its user clientele, for it is a hypo alergenic and latex free bullet. It is non poreous so bacterial growth is a non issue (unless you're one of those people who don't clean your toys, then there could become a problem). The teaser is very smooth and well put together so the seams of the toy are not jaggy or scrathcy. It is a hard plastic, so there is no give in the flexability of this toy.

At the base of my toy, there is a plastic pinkish band that eluminates once the toy is activated. This band is simply for looks, and is also smooth and non irritating.

The control module is also made from a hardend plastic. It is very light weight and has a cheap feeling. It has a somewhat textured design, but serves more as a visual rather than funtunal affect. The battery pack on its reverse has a horizontal grid to better help the user remove the caseing.

The electrical wiring that connects the egg to the contoler is surrounded by a rubber like casing as most electical wires are. It appears to be pretty well sealed at the connection ends to protect the wiring form any kind of contact with liquids.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

As I said earlier, this is my first bullet type of toy, so I wasnt really sure what to expect as far as actual dementions go. The shape of the teaser is kind of like more defined snowman. The base is larger then the head, obviously, but the "torso" is more of a smother transition between sections. Kind of like a rounded hourglass, maybe.

Measuring in at nearly 2 1/2 inches long, this little bullet fitst the category of being descret

Being nearly 2 inches wide at the base, I found that the shape was a little awkward to hold while using the toy. Because it is so smooth to begin with, once it became all lubed up, it was a challenge to hold on to this little guy.

With the controler measuring about 2 inches wide and 5 inches long, I can honestly say that it does fit comftorably in your hand.

The size of the two sections make them travel friendly. I do, however recomend that the sections be kept unplugged when not in use. Both for travel and storage. The slide bar is very easy to move and with the loudness of this toy, I dont think you want that kind of attention.
    • Beginner
    • Discreet size
    • Partner play

Functions / Performance / Controls

Like I said before, the egg is designed to prepare your netherlands for the welcome of a bigger toy, or for an exciting romp in the sheets. It is great for adding some extra stimulation during sex, but other than that, dont plan on climaxing soley with this teaser.

The controls are located on the side of the control module. It is vert easy to use for it is simply a slide type switch. When the bar is all the way down, the toy is off. a simple bump upwards and you got power! Theoredically the further you slide the bar the more power, I found that there were maybe three speed incresease along ths bar. The power increase was mostly noticeable when it switched to full power.

Due to the ease in moving the power bar, I do recomend unplugging the egg from the controler once you are finished. This little guy is so loud that Im sure the neigbors were wondering what was going on. And I partically blame this factor for my lack of climax. It was just too difficult to focus pass the extremly loud vibrations this bullet present. With that said, I dont think this teaser is a good choice for dorm type of living. I did test the door theory and I couldnt hear mine buzzing away, but I blame that on the rain.

Please note that this is NOT a waterproof toy. I can only imagine horrible things going on if water comes intact with that controler.
    • Easy to use
    • Powerful
    • Strong pattern

Care and Maintenance

The turbo teaser's smooth plastic design makes for simple clean up. The bullet itself can be used with soap and water, or what ever other kind of cleaner your prefer. I do recomend disconnecting the two before cleaning. Due to the controlers cheap feel, it is safest to use a dampened washcloth if necessary. I wouldnt go to crazy with cleaning the connection port area either, simply for risk of damaging the connections.

This toy is not rechargeable either. It requires 3 AA bateris that are inserted on the reverse side of the controler. Though I have not had to change batteries yet, I do suspect the battery life to be shorter due to all that power this guy has.

Because I do not have a fun storage case for my tiny toy collection, I keep the tueaser in its box. Im sure though that once I do expand my collection, its box will be one of the first to go because there is just nothing super special about it.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
    • Low maintenance


Here are just a few pictures of what you get with the toy. The bullet and controller come wrapped in a plastic bag. The only kind of instructions you get are the ones located in the battery case, and they only tell you how to put the batteries in. There is some information on the back of the box but it really isnt anything to informative.

As far as gift giving goes, the package clearly states what the product is so I would not consider this discreet. However, there is no naked boby parts anywhere on the box which is a plus. So, in this case, I think it depends on the gift giving situation to better judge if this non descreet box is worthy of giving. And like I said earlier, there is nothing to brag about as far as its packaging so its box is not a keeper.

Please note that the toy doesnt come with batteries. But then again, what toy would when they dont even send an informational booklet!
    • Minimal
    • Not very informative
    • Not discreet packaging

Personal comments

With this toy being my first in this class, I was unsure about what to expect. I will admit that it wasnt all that I was hoping for, but that doesnt mean it was a horrible toy. I think this egg is a nice addition toy anyones toy box because of its versatility and strenght. Even though, I couldnt get past its loud vibrations, Im sure that I will continue to work with it until I find other ways to make it work for me and my partner. But once I do find that perfect little bullet that fits all my expectations, Im probally gonna toss this little guy aside.
Follow-up commentary
After a few months of playing with this toy, I am still not impressed. It’s not that this teaser is a horrible toy overall, it’s just so loud and I can’t get past that. I will admit that it has some potential for couples or for foreplay but after that, forget it.

I was sort of on the fence with this toy when I first got it, and as of today, that status has not changed. For some it may be worth it, and hey, it is another toy to add to a collection, but overall I would pass this one up and look for something a bit more arousing.
