This Ball Misses the Boat

This ball is not worth it as a sex toy. I am giving it a two star rating because it has other potential uses, like as a body massager, but the shape and size is awkward and cumbersome. It cannot get anywhere near close enough to stimulate the clitoris and that is a shame.
Easy to use
Poor design
Not good for sexual stimulation
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


I got this vibrating ball thinking it would be good for clitoral stimulation. After receiving it, however, I believe it would be better suited for nipple play, breasts, neck, back, shoulders, etc. The pleasure ball is simply too large and cumbersome for use below the belt. There are three different settings and the vibrations are fairly strong, it just cannot get close enough to the clit to do much stimulation because of it's size.

Material / Texture

This ball is half smooth plastic and half TPR. The plastic side can get a little slippery when used in water or with lube. The rubbery TPR side is easier to grip. Neither material seems to smell. I don't think either material's texture added anything to the experience. The texture, being so basic, is more for beginners, although more advanced users could certainly enjoy this toy. I think this toy could benefit from a nubby or bumpy texture, especially if being used as a body massager. That would also make it much easier to grip.
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The design, shape, and size, were all poor choices for a sex toy. The ball shape made it impossible to get vibrations any where near my clitoris. The size of the ball was much too large also. It made it difficult to hold, as it was nearly the size of my hand. It's circumference measures 10 1/4".

This toy is not really suitable as a sex toy. It could work fine as a body massager but is not practical or capable in any way of giving me an orgasm.

This toy is somewhat discreet because it does not look like a traditional sex toy. I would not think it would be suitable for travel though because it is large and the on/off switch could easily be triggered.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The ball is half pink, half red. The red half is smooth plastic and the pink half is TPR. On the pink half, there is a button. Press it once, and you go to the first level of vibrations, twice and you go to medium, three times you get the strongest vibes, and the fourth time it turns off. Simple enough. One button does it all. The toy is very noisy. The first setting on mine made an almost rattling sound but that went away as I turned up the speed, though it remained quite loud. It is waterproof and the gasket on the toy seems to do a great job keeping water out. Unfortunately, the toy gets EVEN louder in water.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

This toy is easy to care for. It wipes off easily with toy cleaner or mild soap and water. It is compatible with all lubes and does not react with other toys. I am currently storing mine in the box it came in because it's odd shape doesn't fit in other drawers/ bags/ etc. I've tried and if you lay it on a flat surface, it will roll away...seriously. It does not attract lint, which is nice.
    • Easy to clean


The toy's packaging was nothing to brag about, just a cheap clear plastic box. I have kept it so far because I am storing the ball in it since it has the tendency to roll away anytime you set it down. It serves no other real purpose though.

Follow-up commentary
The design of this is just terrible. I have not used it, or even touched it, a single time since I wrote my original review. As I said, my man used it on his hurt shoulder once and he said it helped, but the size and shape is not good for sexual purposes. It's way too large to provide genital stimulation and it's really to large and cumbersome to even comfortably hold in my hand. Not a good purchase.

    I got this ball and I haven't even put batteries inside of it yet. It looks so cool.

    Woah! This thing is huge! I never really looked at the measurements before. I had no idea it was so big.

    The only thing I really noticed you missing were your individual measurements. Everyone's hand is different so this helps sort of but not entirely. Thanks for the review!

    Thank you everyone! Just a side note- my boyfriend hurt his shoulder and he used it and said it worked fine as a shoulder massager!
