My first foray into the world of remote controlled Sex Toys was ok…whilst it lasted.
Created by Doc Johnson, this 7 function remote control egg arrives in a rather cheap plastic display style box that isn’t really suitable for storage between use. Included with the Egg are the 6 watch style cell batteries it requires and 1 12V N1 sized battery for the remote control. I’ve got the pretty pink ‘Fuchsia‘ coloured egg, but there is also a Blue Version Available.
The Egg is approx 6 cm long, 3 cm wide & close to 11 cm girth at its widest point.( 2.5″ x 1.25″) The remote control is quite small at 7 cm long x 3 cm wide x 1.5 cm deep. Both have plastic coated loops, on the Egg the loop is approx 8 cmm long and is there for safe and easy removal after use, the remote’s loop also has a small clip hook at the end so you, or your partner can attach it to your clothing, key ring or…well whatever you wish to attach it to.
The Egg is made of a velvety textured,phthalate free & body safe TPR (thermo plastic Elastomer). TPR is slightly porous and can’t be fully sterilised but it is Safe to use both silicone & water based lubes with it. The Top 2/3rd s of the egg unscrews from the base to allow you to change the batteries, but there is no seal, making this sex toy only splash-proof rather than water proof, so avoid submerging this adult toy or you may just fry it.
Simply clean with a cloth and warm soapy water or use your favourite toy cleaner.
Using the Remote Control Vibrating Egg
The egg is designed to be ‘worn’ internally whilst you, or your partner controls it’s vibrations via the small, discreet remote control. It can be used solo or as a couple and can be both a tool for pleasure or for intensifying your Kegel excersizes Whilst I was a little scared of the small size of the 24K gold plated Ben Wa Balls I recently reviewed, I am totally at easy with the size of this egg and reassured as it does have that all important string-like loop for easy removal.
There’s 4 different vibration levels & 3 varied patterns of vibration, none of which I found to be that intense, but then again I’m into really intense vibrations. Just because it didn’t suit me Doesn’t mean it won’t suit you. As it is an egg the Vibrations are pretty evenly distributed, but I found them to be just slightly stronger in the base of the egg where the motor is housed.
Although designed to be used or worn internally the eggs vibrations can be very enjoyable for clitoral and other external stimulation. I haven’t ever tried using it with any other sex toy, but found the greatest enjoyment from it vibrating away inside my vagina during anal sex. It was far better being used in this way than any other insertable vibrator I own as it just went about its business leaving my hands, as well as his free to do other things. (It was even better than wearing my beloved We Vibe2 during Anal)
I have to say I’ve always been very excited about the prospect of remote control style sex toys, but the reality really was a let down. Many of my dirty ‘playing with sex toys whilst doing the shopping‘ fantasies are now dismantled. Sadly the remote only worked as I had hoped when it was in my hands, less than 3 feet from the toy, any further and both distance and I’m guessing human flesh diminished the strength of the remote signal. So I guess I should rescind my wish for a we vibe 3 with remote control functions unless they can produce one that is powerful enough to be used at a distance of more than a few feet and can send a signal through the flesh to where the toy is being used, or worn as the case may be.
This remote signal failure isn’t a fatal flaw as it prevents the toys vibration speed and pattern from being changed, it doesn’t stop the toy from working if the remote is out of range. So set it to the speed you like before you enter the supermarket rather than after you grab your trolley.
Finally, Although it has a great sturdy loop for easy removal I still wouldn’t go using this egg for Anal Play. When dealing with pussy there’s only so far a toy can run (as kindly pointed out by both Adriana from ofsexandlove.com & Cherry from The Cherry Scoop on my previous review of the 24K gold plated Ben Wa Balls), but when dealing with your ass, there’s a whole myriad of places a toy could migrate to – so stick to toys with flared bases for Anal play – don’t go becoming an Urban Legend style story.
I can’t love all sex toys I review, this is one I like, but can’t say I love. The remote issue and the slightly weak for my tastes vibration strength leave me giving this Egg a 2.5 out of 5 even though I loved it for other reasons. It may be great for beginners and those who don’t wantt intense vibrations, just because I’m not in love with it doesn’t mean others won’t be.
Final Note: I failed sex toy care 101 with this sex toy. Between playing with it about a month ago and now returning to finalise my review I failed to remove the batteries – something I always do with ALL battery powered toys – and the battery in the remote have died, rendering my egg lifeless 🙁
If the egg had some way of being switched on without the remote I would be a much happier girl.
