Review: Orchid G Vibrator


The Orchid G (shown here) is a vibrator from Babeland Toys designed to hit the G-spot. Reviews on the manufacturer's site were raving to say the least. You can buy it for just $22, or get the Orchid G + Female Ejaculation book combo for $29. (Click to see my review of the Female Ejaculation book, which I thought was mediocre at best.)

I was excited to try out this vibrator, and I haven't been disappointed.

I will say if you're looking for a great G-spot stimulator, this probably isn't your best choice. So far, I haven't been wowed by any great feelings on my G-spot, even after using it both with and without vibrations. I couldn't get it in without lube, and once in it felt nice... I could feel it touching my G-spot, and it did turn me on, but nothing earth-shattering ever happened.

However.

And this is a big, "HOWEVER."

This vibe is actually fantastic for clit stimulation! While that is not its primary purpose, the Babeland site did mention in passing it could be used for clit stimulation. In my opinion, they did their toy a disservice! They should have raved infinitely about how easily this vibrator will make newbies to the vibrator world have an orgasm.

With the Orchid G, I've been able to consistently stimulate my clit to orgasm. Being an anti-mess and anti-germ freak, I love not having to touch myself with my hands. I say "consistently," so of course it's not all the time: I'd say about 2/3 of the time I have an orgasm, or about 66%. While this isn't 100%, it is still, oh...about sixty-two percent higher than any males I've met, so I'm not complaining!

Now for the technical side. The vibe is water resistant but not water proof, so not shower or hot-tub safe. :( It is made of nonporous materials and I easily cleaned it with soap and water. It takes two AA batteries, which I haven't run through yet. One downfall is it is pretty loud for such a small vibe. For those of us with roommates or housemates, this is not good! I had to use a blanket over me to muffle the sound. Other drawbacks are it heats up during long use and sometimes makes a shaking sound like something is rattling around in there loose. A great feature is the vibe easily goes from a super-soft vibration to a harder one. At first I found the harder speeds to be too much for me, but gradually I've begun to need a harder sensation as I get used to the vibe. I like to go back and forth between speeds so my clit doesn't get desensitized, and my only regret is that eventually the vibe heats up from use.

I would definitely recommend this vibe for those curious about vibes or clit play. The vibe isn't perfect, but it's a good buy for the money (just $22!!!) so treat yourself or your sweetie to an early Merry Christmas and buy the Orchid G!
