Just so you know

Just so you know, while there will be mention of adult products, I'm not going to go into graphic details about anything. Even still, I realize that not everybody wants to read about adult products, so those will have a disclaimer at the top of each post :)

Couture Collection Bliss

***Disclaimer: This is a review for an adult toy.  There will be mention of adult body parts, the adult website that sent it to me, and all around adult topics.  If you're under 18 or this is something that might make you uncomfortable, please skip this post and move on to the next one***

I'm not new to the world of reviewing sex toys, but this is my first time reviewing one on my blog for the awesome sex shop I definitely trust. But enough with the formalities right now, and onto the toys!

Today I'm giving you a walk-through of the Bliss rechargeable egg bullet from California Exotics. The box it comes in is pretty nice, not very discreet, but still kinda cute.  It's covered in pictures of the whole setup inside the box, as well as descriptions.  When you open it up, you find the charging base (shaped like a heart, how freaking cute!), the rechargeable egg, the remote, and the little 12V battery that operates the remote.  The bottom of the box is actually removable and contains the charger as well as an attachment that makes it US friendly.

So before you can get started, you have to plug the charging cord into the back of the charging base, then plug that into the wall, and drop the egg right into the little dent in the base.  While it's charging, a light on the charging base as well as the single button on the bullet will both glow red.  Once the bullet is charged, its light turns green and you can start playing. 

To start playing, first you have to press and hold the on/off button on the bullet for a few seconds until it turns green.  I couldn't figure this one out on my own, my fiance did. And I even read the poor excuse for an instruction manual! But that's neither here nor there.  Make sure you turn it on before you insert it (if that's what you're going to do), because otherwise you're gonna have to pull it out and start over again.  To bring the bullet out of 'standby mode', just press and hold that same button again until it flashes red.

Once the bullet itself is on, you can start playing with the remote.  Control it yourself, give it to your significant other, or even to some random stranger on the bus! Working it is really easy, just press the on/off button on the remote to start you at the lowest setting, and then the button with the funny symbol on it underneath that to flip through the vibrations.  In total there are 7 different vibrations: low, medium, high, escalation, pulsing, faster pulsing, and an escalating pulse.  You can cycle all the way through each level multiple times without turning the vibrations off, and if you hit the off button and turn it back on, you'll be right back at the beginning each time. The vibrations themselves are on the higher side of medium pitched and feel more surfacey than rumbly, but are still nice all the same. Even on the highest vibration level it's still pretty quiet.  A little louder than a cell phone, but closing the door and getting under the covers will definitely hide the noise. 

The bullet, the remote, and the base are all made of the same really nice velvety plastic. The bullet itself is pretty hefty in size, but not weight, coming in at about 2 1/2" long and about 5" around at its widest.  It's smooth to the touch and has virtually no drag to it whatsoever. Since it's plastic, it's safe for your body and you can use any water based or silicone based lube you want, and since it's waterproof, you can wear it, use it in the shower or tub, and cleaning is a breeze.  Just wash in the sink with your favorite toy cleaner, or some antibacterial soap.  Make sure to clean that 4" long retrieval cord pretty well too, since it's made of a nylon-type string and can absorb fluids and things like that.  Try not to get the remote wet, since that's not waterproof at all. As for storing it goes, you can feel free to keep the whole thing in a nightstand drawer if you want.  You're going to have to try to do any real damage to anything here.

There's a few different ways you can use this bullet.  You can use it for the stimulation and teasing of the clitoris, nipples, or any other erogenous zone.  You can insert it vaginally and wear it out and about, vibrating away for pleasure, or even to remind you to do your kegels.  Or you can use it as a little massage aid. The vibrations lend themselves quite well to the production of "itchy fingers" so keep that in mind as well.  No matter how you choose to use it, you should avoid trying to put it in your butt, for any reason.  Since there's no flared base, it could easily get sucked in and you really don't want to have to explain that to a doctor.

  1. Yeah first toy review on your blog. Very nice. :)

  2. Aww, you guys freaking rock! :D

  3. If you don't mind me asking, how often has this device been tested for a reasonable amount of time? The only reason I ask is that so many of these similar devices are failing to make it past a few uses without failing. That worries me big time! Any reports from the field? :-)

  4. Sorry for the delayed response, unfortunately, mine appears to have succumbed to the random fail after a few uses. I got 3 or 4 good uses out of it before writing the review itself, and then the next time I went to use it, it wasn't working anymore. The egg still turns on, but the remote doesn't seem to be working at all anymore. I've been waiting to do a followup on EdenFantasys until I had gotten a chance to replace the batteries just in case that might have been it.

    I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help, but for what it's worth, I no longer recommend this because it seems to fail so quickly.
