Aria's decadent lovebird - strap-on vibrator by Cal Exotics - review by Ser Pounce-a-lot

This little bird packs a wallop!

Overall, the toy was worth buying and although it is a little difficult to get positioned right for maximum effectiveness, it seems to be of quality make. This toy is the most powerful of the strap-on vibrators we have tried.

Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This toy is definitely the most powerful of the hands free style vibrators we have tried. It has significantly more vibration power than any other we have tried. My girlfriend has sensitivity issues, and requires a strong vibrator to be able to get off. This vibrator was able to to the job, although with all toys like this, positioning it was tricky. We seemed to have problems getting it to stay tight enough against her, I believe part of the problem was that the center strap that holds the toy on was not tight enough. When we try this toy next time, I hope it's an easier experience.

As long as it stays in place well, this toy would also be great for teasing your partner when used on a lower setting. The textured nodules on the bird underside help transmit vibration to a wider area than most toys like this.

Material / Texture

This toy is made of a jelly material. It seemed to be neither too hard or soft, but just right.
The controller and toy seemed to be of durable construction. I did not get any impression that it was cheaply made or flimsy.

The cord that connects the toy to the controller was solid and reliable, as I have seen toys with poor cable quality and/or bad connections fail to work properly or break prematurely; this is a big plus.
    • Bumpy
    • No odor
    • Porous

Design / Shape / Size

This toy is designed to be small and compact, and would not be hard to hide away when needed. It will easily fit into most toy storage chests.

Like all toys of this style, getting the tightness of the straps right to hold the toy effectively in place was difficult. However, I think the main cause of our problem was that we had too much slack on the center g-string strap. This is one element of the design we didn't like, my girlfriend isn't crazy about g-strings, had this toy had traditional waist and leg straps instead, it would have been better.

Due to the nature of where the g-string goes, there are hygienic concerns with the straps. The straps appear to be removable and could be hand washed to ensure they stay sanitary.
    • Discreet look/design

Functions / Performance / Controls

The controller box that comes with this toy has 10 different speeds and 5 modes. The modes include on, off, steady, pulsating and escalating (low to high cycling). The product information mentions that this has 30 impulse patterns. I am not sure what this means; I only saw speeds and modes on the controller.

The vibrations are provided by a vibrating egg (cylinder shaped, about 2" long) inside the bird, which seemed to be quite powerful and also somewhat noisy. I don't think this toy would be very discreet sounding even on the lower settings.
    • Multiple settings
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

This toy is made of a jelly material, which means it can't be sterilized like other materials.
Water based and silicone lubes are safe to use with this toy.

The fact that the g-string rides up the butt makes me wonder how hygienic the straps are, but it appears you can take the straps off and hand wash them. I think doing that would be a good idea in general, to ensure bacteria do not multiply on the strap.
    • Easy to store


This toy had fairly basic packaging. There really wasn't a reason to keep it for storage after opening, and it was not discreet. It came in a standard cardboard box, and was sealed in a plastic bag on the inside.
    • Minimal
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

Our experience with this toy was positive overall, and I'm looking forward to giving it another try to see how well it performs for us. I was surprised at how powerful it is, most toys of this type tend to be a bit on the weak side. The nodules on the toy are a nice touch and help to spread vibrations over a larger area. A lot of toys like this rely on a fairly small end to transmit vibrations, such as rabbit ears. However, for people that aren't too sensitive, this often doesn't work well. The combination of the bird beak and textured nodules makes it more effective in my opinion.
