Jesse Jane's pink ladybug vibe - sex toy by Cal Exotics - review by missymery

This toy is pretty in pink—and pretty good at that! Great toy for beginners.

This is an amazing beginner toy! I love the power, the look, and the overall feel of this toy! With a few construction tweaks, it could be an amazing addition to anyone's life.
Good power, nice placement of the bug, nice feeling of the toy
Eats battery life, jelly, poor construction in some areas

extremely useful review


The Pink Ladybug vibrator was one of my first real vibrators. In the past I had just kind of gone to the store and picked one at random. But this time I did some research and decided on this as my first real vibrator. It's not that discreet, so it's not something you would want to take out for much public play. But behind closed doors, this toy does amazing things. It's pretty quiet even on high, so it won't be heard under some covers and behind a closed door.

Not all rabbits will be able to reach and stimulate the clit on every girl since all bodies are different. For me, though, this one worked perfectly. I could reach the rabbit without having the entire vibrator inside me. The vibrations are also amazing. They're so powerful, and with all the different combinations of speed/twisting, you can definitely find what you want. The beads in the shaft are AMAZING. You can feel them move so powerfully even on medium. A tiff I have with this toy is that it seems to drain the power of the four AAA batteries pretty fast. In the middle of playing with it, it'd suddenly die.

Other than that, this toy is very good for beginners. It's not too big, length or width wise. It comes with a nice variety and speeds and spins, and it is very pleasing to the eyes.

Material / Texture

The material of this toy is jelly. Jelly contains polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which does have phthalates in it. I wouldn't suggest using this toy without good precaution. This toy should not be shared without a condom, and neither should this toy be used for anal and vaginal penetration without a condom and wash. It does have a slight smell to it because it is jelly, but the smell seems to go away after a few washes—at least it did for me. It is also a bit sticky at first, so be sure to handle with care.

The plus side to jelly, in my opinion, is that it creates a great feeling. It has the perfect amount of drag, but it still remains very slippery and smooth. Textures like silicone are too smooth for me, so they don't feel as good. This toy does have some drag, which creates more friction for a stronger sensation. This jelly toy is very flexible, allowing you to move it around inside you as well as around your body for a nice feeling and perhaps to even receive some teasing from your partner.

Design / Shape / Size

The design of the Pink Ladybug is quite simple but very nice! Again, it is very beginner friendly. The entire length of the toy is nine inches—the insertable length being six inches of that and the width being four inches. The toy itself is not that large, so size junkies probably won't get a kick from this one. It's a basic size (in my opinion) and good for just about anyone who wants something nice but not over the top in size. The ridged swirling up and down the toy is very nice but, to me, is not too noticeable since the toy IS so soft. The jelly material around the beads does make the beads slightly less noticeable until you get to about medium speed, and then they truly come out. But they are non-jamming! With no firm core at the head, the top of the toy is so soft, making insertion very delightful and comfortable.

And on to the rabbit . . . well, in this case, the bug! For me, this bug hit just the spot—the perfect placement. The little bugger goes really fast on high. Combined with the twirling of the shaft, this toy really does do some amazing things.

Overall, this toy is great for beginners, in my opinion. It's easy to use and very smooth. The design is basic but very nice. It is not too discreet for travel, but the noise level is nice and manageable.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The performance of this toy is very nice, speed and power wise. It has the speed and the power, but the toy is lacking in long-time use. It takes four AAA batteries, and on high, it just JUICES the power out. After like five minutes for me, this toy was done. Where you place the batteries is also where the controls are located. It is easy to figure out. Just slide the dial up or down, according to the power you'd like. The location of the controls for me was a BIT awkward. They seemed to slide up and down a bit too easily, so sometimes it'd take a bit to get them in the right spot. One of the controls is used for the bug and the other for the shaft. There aren't too many options as far as rotations go, but there are a lot of power options.

The power of this toy was really great, in my opinion. You can see the vibrator inside the toy and basically feel it throughout the entire thing. It is slightly weaker at the head, but everywhere else is full force.

A problem I also had is that the hatch to put over the batteries is a bit loose. Mine ended up falling off, and I had to hold it together with some tape.

The noise level, as mentioned before, is very nice. It's not the quietest but not the loudest either. I put the toy on high, put it under one blanket, and stepped outside my room. Unless you have your ear pressed to the door, you can't hear the toy.

It is not waterproof, so there's no bath-time fun with this toy!

Care and Maintenance

This is a lint magnet! Originally, I was going to store this toy in the box it came in, but I decided against it. Jelly is a very porous material, so too much heat, too much lint, too much anything can mess with this toy! Keeping it in plastic (the original box) is probably not a good idea. If it got too hot, the box could steam up a bit or create some perspiration that could then get onto the toy. Also, this toy is jelly and is thus sticky! Keeping it away from plastic is the best choice.

Try keeping it somewhere dark with not too much sunlight and somewhere without extreme temperatures. For me, I bought a toy case and kept it in there.

As for lube, water base or silicone base works for this toy!

Cleaning this toy is fairly simple. Remember, you CANNOT sterilize jelly material. Also, you cannot boil it. Use warm water and a toy cleaner or a really light, non-scented soap to wash this toy. Be careful: it isn't waterproof! I usually just tip it down when I wash it to avoid getting any water on the battery case.

Remember also that this is jelly and is thus very porous! Always use a condom if you share this toy, and only use it for vaginal-only or anal-only penetration. If you have to use it for both, use a condom!

    • Easy to clean


The packaging of the Ladybug was very standard: just a plastic box with the label on it, which was not much to look at. I suggest just taking it out, washing it up, and enjoying the toy, not the box.

Personal comments

Overall, I did enjoy this toy as a beginning toy. The length and width of this toy really sold me. It isn't too much to handle and is easy to enjoy. The controls are fairly easy to use and are easy to figure out. Overall, this toy is easy! I loved the feeling, the way the rabbit works, and the positioning of it. The non-jamming beads are only a plus to this toy!

I wish it were maybe waterproof or just a bit better made. Some of the construction seems a bit poor at times, such as the battery compartment falling apart as well as the power being sucked out within minutes.


This was a good experience, overall. It has nice power and is a pretty basic toy for first-time use.
Follow-up commentary
I still like it, but I don't LOVE it. I still think it's good for beginners, but the toy being jelly really turns me off of this toy. I use it more for clit stimulation than actually using it as a full on vibrator.

I only did a review so early to my original because I bought this a long time ago, way before my original review.
