I think the OhMiBod is one of the first sex toys I truly lusted after. I’ve always found music to be an incredibly powerful aphrodisiac, so being able to experience the music I love in a whole new way held great appeal. I Imagined Dave Grohl’s hard hitting drumming making my insides quiver as the noise was transformed into vibrations by the OhMiBod. Sadly though the original OhMiBod shape really didn’t do anything for me and I didn’t want to go “poo poohing” on what I thought was a truly innovative and interesting concept. The OhMiBod was a brilliant idea, it was just that a completely straight, un-textured vibrator was never ever going to get my blood really pumping so I held back from writing about it.
Fast forward a year – OhMiBod won the Red Dot Design award for 2010 with their innovative products and have now released a few more toys that offer new ways for your favourite music to be translated into sexual pleasure by their uber nifty OhMiBod technology!
The new shape of the OhMiBod Naughtibod refreshed my interest in getting off to my favourite band…. Oh and the fact that the Naughtibod comes in a rainbow of colors – Including this super cute Apple Green certainly didn’t hurt!!
The somewhat boring and bland dead straight, white vibrator has been superseded by the veritable rainbow of the generation 2 point ‘oh’ OhMiBod Naughtibod vibrators and their bulbously groovy shape. Even the texture of the toys surface has been improved from super shiny plastic to a more velvety finish that creates the exact right type of drag that I’m looking for a sex toy.
Materials: 100% Body safe, Phthalate free ABS Plastic
Colors Available: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Black, Purple and Pink
Power Source: 2x AAA size batteries which come included!!
Controls: You can control the intensity via the volume on your iPod if you are using it in music mode, otherwise there are easy to reach buttons on the end cap to control the vibrations.
Vibration Patterns & Intensities: 7 different patterns are pre-programmed into the vibrator but the possibilities are limitless when used in music mode as each song creates its own unique patterns.
Compatible Devices: iPod’s, iPhones, other mp3 players, your laptop and almost any device that creates sound and you can plug your headphones into will work with the OhMiBod products – technically anything with a 3.5mm port that has audio output.
Size: 6.25″ or 16cm long approx 1.25″ or 3cm wide with a maximum girth of 3.5″ or 9cm
Packaging: The Naughtibod’s packaging is very similar to the original OhMiBod – a simple cardboard box with a plastic tray inside that holds your new toy, its storage pouch, the 3 foot long splitter cord and the instruction manual.
Storage: Cute Pink velvet like pouch is included for storage. It has OhMiBod embroidered on the side of it and it’s big enough to hold both the vibrator and the cord to connect it to your iPod or other device.
Lube Compatibility: Best when used with water based lubes
Care & Cleaning: It is NOT water proof so you do need to take care when cleaning it to ensure that water doesn’t manage to find its way inside and destroy your new toy on you.
Price & Availability: You can pick up a Naughtibod for $99au from the Australian OhMiBod store or $US from their international site. They re also available from many of your other favourite sex toy sites such as femplay Australia or EdenFantasys.com
Extending your OhMiBod vibe: For those of you out there in Iphone land (I’m incredibly jealous of you all) it should be of no surprise that the people behind the iPod/iPhone vibrator have also gone ahead and created an App to go with their ingenious little sex toys. The Body Heat App adds to the numerous ways that you can control and create your own individual pattern of pleasure with your OhMiBod sex toy. You can get the Body Heat App from the Itines store – of course.
All About the Naughtibod
For those who have not heard of OhMiBod before now it is an exciting company that creates adult toys that work in tandem with your favourite mp3 player to interpret your favourite music into amazing vibrations. As I said earlier the first OhMiBod sex toy wasn’t all that fantastic simply due to the under whelming shape, size and finish of the vibrator – but now there is quite a wide range of OhMiBod toys available, including the funky range of colored Nauightibod’s!
I’ve been longing for more green sex toys and was over the moon to see that I had been sent the Apple Green colored naughtibod but it comes in a range of super fruity flavours with names like Cherry Red, Tangerine, Blueberry, Lemon drop, Liquorice, Grape and Bubblegum pink. There’s a color for every personality 🙂 I wish more sex toys came in such a wide range of colors!
How it works
The Naughtibod comes with a splitter cord that looks a little bit like a set of headphones without the ear buds. This cord plugs straight into the headphone jack of your iPod (or other mp3 player etc). You can then plug your headphones into this splitter so you can hear the music you’re getting down to. Final step plug the end of the splitter cord into the bottom of the naughtibod and start experiencing music in a whole new way.
It takes a bit of trial and error to find the songs that work the best with the OhMiBod technology as some songs can overwhelm it and simply cause a rather boring constantly on style of vibration. You can control the intensity of the vibrations by adjusting the volume of the music source. I strongly recommend you try somewhere between 70% and 85% of the maximum volume. I found when I turned things up to the max it drowned out the intricacies of the music and created a constant hum rather than a noticeable pattern.
One of the big bonus points for OhMiBod toys is that whilst they can create great vibrations from your favourite songs they also function as regular vibrators as well. In earlier models OhMiBod toys came with two different end caps – one to connect with your music player and a second to control the vibration patterns manually. In version 2.OH there’s just the one end cap. The new Naughtibod end cap features two control buttons ( a circle and a triangle) as well as the port for the splitter cord to plug into.
My Musical Choices
I found that the naughtibod responded delightfully to some of my favourite bass rocking songs like 7 Nation Army by the White Stripes and No One Knows by Queens of the Stone Age1
Sadly some of my favourite Generation X anthems were just turned into a muddy grunge soup, but good old fashion punk such as the sex pistols went off!! But the #1 band on my OhMiBod playlist has got to be Metallica, they seriously made my entire body wriggle and writhe!
Size wise I wasn’t overly impressed. I’m a girl who likes to feel fully filled so the naughtibod is kinda on the small side for my tastes. The small size did however prove to be useful for a bit of G-Spot stimulation, but with everyone’s G-Spots being located in their own unique position I can’t guarantee it will do the same for you.
I think the naughtibod would make a pretty amazing first vibrator. With a size that isn’t overwhelming and such a wide variety of vibration possibilities I find it hard to knock it. The vibrations travel well throughout the entire shaft of this toy and its shape makes for some enjoyable sensations for thrusting. It’s made of 100% body safe materials that are free of Phthalates and other nasties.
When cleaning you need to be careful not to let water get into the port where the headphone jack plugs in. I found using a damp wash cloth to be the easiest way to clean this toy as excessive water could destroy it. I also always remove batteries after use as if they were to leak they can destroy your toy. In between uses I store my Naughtibod along with its cord and batteries inside of the pink velveteen pouch that comes with the toy.
In comparison to the original OhMiBod vibrator I am incredibly impressed. The Naughtibod offers a far more enjoyable shape and surface texture and I’m convinced that the 2.OH version interprets the music with greater definition than the original toy. Whilst it lacks the kind of size I personally enjoy I find it pretty hard to knock this toy and feel it really does deserve a full 4 out of 5 stars.
I was also lucky enough to be sent the Better than Chocolate OhMiBod which combines the funky functionality of musically powered vibrations and the incredibly original clitoral vibrator from sex toy manufacturer Nomi Tang – so keep your eyes out for that review!
I’m also crushing on their club vibe as it could make the Foo Fighters concert in December the best concert of my life!!
Huge thank-you to OhMiBod Australia for sending me this ever so cute Green Apple Naughtibod to review. If you are after one of your own they are available from OhMiBod.com.au for $99au or at your favourite quality sex toy store.
