Fifty Shades of Grey Charlie tango

Traditional vibrator by Fifty Shades Of Grey

Add resource

One of the safest in its class.

If you're looking for an average sized, traditional vibrator, then you're likely to enjoy this vibrator. If you're a fan of the book 50 Shades of Grey, then you're likely to enjoy the novelty of this vibrator. If you really can't stand the book, you might want to look at a different classic vibrator. Toy collectors and advanced users will probably find this toy very boring and not worth of being in their collection, but beginners can't go wrong with a vibrator of this kind.
Comes with a storage pouch, good for beginners and fans of 50 Shades of Grey.
Weak vibrations, boring, paint rubs off/chips, collects fingerprints.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


If you read 50 Shades of Grey, then you know all about Charlie Tango. For those of you who haven't read the book, Charlie Tango is an EC 135 Eurocopter. One of the safest in its class.

The real Charlie Tango:

I'm assuming if you're interested in this toy it's because you're a fan of the 50 Shades of Grey series. If you absolutely hated the book, you're probably going to pretend that you didn't even see this vibrator, and go on about your day. I'll be completely honest and say that I totally bought this toy because I loved the book and I loved that it was named Charlie Tango. Lame, I know. With that being said, I promise not to let my love for the book effect my reviewing of this vibrator. Just because I loved the book, that doesn't mean I'm going to love the Charlie Tango of sex toys.

Charlie Tango is your standard, traditional vibrator. It's good for using by yourself or with a partner, and it's best used for penetrative stimulation, although, I would only use it vaginally and recommend that you not use this anally due to its lack of a flared base. This is just your average vibrator that is good for women of all experience levels, but it's probably most appealing to fans of the book.

Material / Texture

Charlie Tango is completely made of a silver, shiny plastic. Plastic is smooth, firm, and it doesn't bend or give out. It's non-porous, hypo-allergenic, latex and phthalate free, and overall a body safe material. This plastic material is completely odorless and it doesn't attract lint or hair. Instead of collecting hair or lint, this vibrator collects fingerprints. Overall it's a safe material for users of any experience level.

The Charlie Tango is completely smooth and cool to the touch. There is no texture for added stimulation, so if you're a texture lover this toy is not for you. The name Charlie Tango is written along the shaft of this vibrator. Even though this text is not raised, you can still feel that it's there when you run your finger over it. I'm honestly not sure what the name is written on there with. It could possibly be painted on, and if that's the case, I wouldn't doubt if it started to chip off after a while. On the base of the toy it says "50 Shades of Grey", and as you can see, it's already starting to rub off.

    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

Like I mentioned before, Charlie Tango is your standard, classic vibrator. The total length is 7 inches long with 6 of those inches being insertable. Charlie Tango's widest point is 3 1/4 inches in circumference. This vibrator is probably not the best choice for those who like a lot of girth. The head of this vibrator is gently tapered making it very comfortable to insert. This vibrator is exactly that one would expect a vibrator to look like. I don't consider it to be discreet due to it's popular and well-known shape, but it is something you could easily travel with. I think the size of this vibrator is very standard and average, and most appealing to those who are just experimenting with sex toys for the first time.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Charlie Tango takes 2 AA batteries. To insert that batteries is just like any other traditional vibrator. Unscrew the base, insert the batteries (positive end first), and then screw the base back on tightly to ensure that it stays watertight. To get Charlie Tango going, simply twist the end of the base in a clockwise direction to increase the level of vibrations. The quality of the vibrations are pretty decent for a battery operated vibrator. It really depends on what kind of vibrations you like whether or not you like the Charlie Tango. The vibrations can be slightly felt throughout the entire toy but they are strongest closer to the the tip of the vibrator. Charlie Tango offers a nice rumbly vibration, but it doesn't get all that strong, at least not strong enough for my liking. The Charlie Tango is just barely at 3 vrooms. With not a lot of power, comes not a lot of noise. Charlie Tango is pretty quiet when being used on the highest setting, I doubt anyone would be able to hear it through a closed door. This is a really easy toy to use. There's no patterns to scroll through and there's no buttons to mess with. This toy can be easily figured out, and it's a good choice for first time toy users.

Care and Maintenance

This classic vibrator is 100% waterproof and can be used in the shower, bath, pool, or jacuzzi. Since it's waterproof, that makes it a very easy toy to clean. I use my favorite toy cleaner, but you could also wash it with a mild soap and warm water. I'm always wiping it down with toy wipes as well. I hate the fingerprints, it makes it look really dirty. You can use Charlie Tango with water-based or silicone-based lubricants. I like to use a warming lubricant since the material of the vibrator can sometimes get a little cold at first.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


Charlie Tango comes nicely packaged in a recyclable, indiscreet cardboard box. There is a brief description about the toy on the back of the box, but it's also included with a small insert that tells you how to insert the batteries and use your toy. There's really no need to keep your packaging because Charlie Tango comes with its very own 50 Shades of Grey satin storage pouch.
