One Fun Tune to HUM to!

Let this baby hum you all the way to nirvana! While the design of the Hummer doesn't lend to easy insertion, the strong vibrations, dual sculpted head, and ten functions make it a wonderful gift for your clitoris (and, really, doesn't your clit DESERVE a present?). Let the scoop side of the Hummer surround your clitoris with vibrations or use the nub to focus all the vibrating power on one spot. With a partner or solo, the Clitoral Hummer is sure to make your toes curl!
Inexpensive, easy to use, versatile, great texture, good solo and with a partner
Some rough seams/edges, not very good for insertion
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Clitoral Hummer is a reliable basic vibrator for an inexpensive price. I've always kept a couple simple, multipurpose vibes in easy reach of the bed that can be grabbed at a moment's notice. The Clitoral Hummer's strong vibrations and multiple settings have made it one of my "go-to" vibes. I do not use it for insertion, though! While this toy has a fun shape ideal for stimulating the clitoris, nipples, labia, shaft and head of the penis, and most any other external erogenous zone, the pointy nub on it makes insertion uncomfortable at best.

Insertion issues aside, this toy is a great bargain. You can trail the nub of the vibe over your partner's skin in a goosebump-inducing tease, or focus it directly on the clitoris or nipples for some moan-worthy intensity. The variety of settings (10 in total!) make it fun for all sorts of teasing, solo or with a partner. The relatively slim design lends itself to easy use during intercourse. To avoid poking the clitoris uncomfortably while in the midst of grinding, use the silky smooth scoop side of the vibe. This baby is wonderfully versatile and can be used for direct clitoral stimulation in just about any position!

Material / Texture

The Clitoral Hummer has the silky-soft feel that I love! That old cliche of "velvet over steel"? This baby personifies it. While a stiff, unyielding toy, the Hummer's hard plastic is coated with silky, smooth polyurethane. It has that curiously soft feel that is oh-so-satisfying to caress.

My only complaint with the texture is the seaming: at the very tip of the toy you can feel the seam where the two sides of the toy were melded together, resulting in a roughness that has the potential to scrape if used internally. This is one of the reasons (in addition to its shape) that I don't recommend inserting the Clitoral Hummer.

I did my best to take a shot that showed the rough ridges at the head, but the uniform color makes them tough to see.

Design / Shape / Size

I really love the shape of the Clitoral Hummer! One side of the Hummer is a shallow scoop, perfect for cupping the clitoris or nipple.

The scoop itself is approximately 1.25" long by 1/2" wide at its broadest. The scoop is shaped like a tear drop, with a gently rounded, narrow top and a wider, rounded bottom. It is perhaps 1/5" of an inch in depth at its very deepest point. The scoop shape perfectly fits the pad of my thumb, if that gives you a better idea of the size/depth.

The alternate side of the Hummer is a softly rounded nub, similar in size to the tip of a pinky finger. About 1/4" in diameter, the nub extends only 1/3" on the long edge, barely 1/4" on the short side. This creates a nice little point that is useful for direct, focused stimulation. This is probably the most versatile part of the Hummer - run it over any part of your partner's body and watch the goosebumps rise in its wake.


The head is the only part of this toy I really find useful; insertion just doesn't do much for me on this one. For those of you who do care to insert it, the Hummer has 6" of insertable length. Only measuring up at 1.25" in diameter - and, thanks to its wavy length, as slimly as 1" in places - the Clitoral Hummer isn't very girthy. If you're looking for a toy that will make you feel super full, this isn't it.

Functions / Performance / Controls

All ten of the Clitoral Hummer's functions can be activated via a single button, located on the base of the toy. To switch between functions, press the button. To turn off the Hummer, hold the button on the base down for 4-5 seconds. This is the only way to turn the Hummer off; cycling through the settings will not turn the device off. To get to a specific setting, click the button at the bottom until you reach the desired pattern. If you turn off the Hummer while it's on a setting, when you turn it back on it will still be on that setting. Once you leave a setting, you have to cycle through all of the vibration patterns to return to that setting. ??

The cycles themselves are nothing ground breaking. They are:
1. Low, steady vibrations
2. Medium, steady vibrations
3. High, steady vibrations
4. Short pulses in quick succession
5. One long pulse, followed by one short
6. One long pulse, followed by two short
7. Five pulses, starting at very low intensity and working to the highest intensity
8. ~15 seconds of extremely fast pulses at low intensity followed by two longer pulses at the same intensity; then, 15 seconds of fast pulses at medium intensity, followed by two long pulses at medium intensity; finally, 15 seconds of fast pulses at high, followed by two longer pulses at high intensity
9. Two soft pulses, then ~15 seconds of fast pulses during which the intensity goes from low to high; two long pulses at high intensity, then ~15 seconds of fast pulses that go from high intensity back to low
10. Three long pulses at high intensity, followed by ~15 seconds of extremely short pulses as the vibe goes from low to high intensity

So there you have it: the ten functions in a (rather large!) nutshell. Personally, I greatly prefer continuous vibrations, but I gave the pulsing settings a whirl, too. Talk about fun! Even the shortest pulses delivered enough strength to send me soaring into ecstasy. I didn't expect much from such an inexpensive vibrator, but the Clitoral Hummer really delivered on strength, variety, and versatility. It's great to use alone and with a partner, easily slipping between two bodies. Run it over the shaft of a penis or balls to give a man a thrill, or over your erogenous zones for even more fun.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety in function

Care and Maintenance

Since this toy is polyurethane covered plastic, it can be used with water based or silicone lubricant. Pick your favorite and go with it!

Once you've had your fun, cleaning the Hummer is a breeze. Just spritz with some antibacterial toy cleaner, rinse, dry, and store! I keep the Hummer in my bedside drawer, but it can fit nearly anywhere. I recommend taking the 2 AA batteries out when storing, as that helps reduce battery drain. I've used this toy for well over two hours at this point (during various sessions) and my batteries show no sign of draining any time soon, but it never hurts to be careful!
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
    • Low maintenance


The Clitoral Hummer comes in a cheap molded plastic package with a paper insert. While garish, the paper insert does provide necessary information about the toy: number of functions, how to turn it off, and contact information for the company (California Exotics). Interestingly enough, the front of the paper insert proclaims the toy waterproof. There is another version of the Clitoral Hummer on EdenFantasys that is listed as the waterproof version of this toy. I haven't tested this, but I assume the original packaging is correct.

In summation: the packaging does its job but is not discreet and certainly not worth keeping.

When I was scouting out an assignment to try, I ran across the clitoral hummer. I'm always searching for toys that are compatible with partner play in a variety of positions. Big, bulky vibes can't fit between two heaving bodies all that easily, so a slim profile is a huge draw for me. My favorite old (and I mean OLD - over six years old!) vibe for partner play died last fall and I've been searching for a suitable replacement ever since. While the Hummer isn't great for insertion, and therefore isn't compatible with being inserted during/in combination with oral, it IS great for slipping between my partner and I.

I'm not the tiniest girl (5'10", 190) and neither is my partner (6', 210), so sometimes our *ahem* bellies can be an issue. Not with this toy! I especially love using it in reverse cowgirl. The scoop side of the vibe cups my clit perfectly without getting in the way of thrusting and wiggling around. Same for doggy-style, face down on the mattress, feet on shoulders... you name a position, and the Hummer can probably not only reach your clit in that position, but actually deliver strong enough vibrations to make you orgasm!

While my search for the perfect toy to pair with oral hasn't ended, the Hummer has become my quick grab when we're going hot and heavy and having fun switching up positions. I like it enough that were it to (*sob*) die, I'd replace it in a heartbeat!
Follow-up commentary
The Hummer is a fun little vibe and still makes its way into my play from time to time. It's not the first vibe I go to, but I find it useful enough that the Hummer is one of the toys I keep in my bedside drawer for easy access.
