Not your typical product review

I’ve had the pleasure (no pun intended) of receiving a very personal sort of product to review, and me being me, I’m not too shy to talk about it.

There’s a lovely group of people who make up a site called CleverBodies and when the opportunity to review a product from their love toys line presented itself, I thought, well, that could be fun…

I’ve reviewed a lot of products that cover most areas of practical life: shoes, jackets, tea, chocolate, etc., but never something so intimate – so personal. I had my choice of items, so I picked what intrigued me most, from a design and curiosity point of view.

Let me tell you about the OhMiBod Better Than Chocolate vibrating love toy.
First, the folks take great care in protecting your privacy when shipping; my product arrived in a plain box with no real way to tell what might be inside. Within the plain parcel was a tastefully gift-wrapped box containing the reddot design award winning toy.

Notice there’s an iPod pictured on the box. That’s right, this is a music controllable vibrator. You should experiment with very different songs and tempos– it’s really interesting. Death metal? Not really good for the mood, but hilarious to feel! Latin beats, ambient, rock… all different. Playing with the volume changes intensity and there’s also an iPhone app to touch control the vibes (or let someone else control them for you).

Don’t want to mess around with the tech side of things? That’s OK too, as the Better Than Chocolate has four preprogrammed vibration patterns built in with a touch slide control with pattern lock capability. Did I mention it’s also safe in water up to a metre? Hello, bubble bath…

The shape of the BTC takes some getting to know, as it does touch you in a unique way. It is easy to hold, and the whole thing quietly buzzes, so give yourself time to play and explore. After the initial ‘getting to know you’ period with the love toy, it did its job * cough * and really, that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it.

Visit the CleverBodies site for more good stuff, and treat yourself to a toy. Last I looked, they were running a 15% off code for readers of The Sun as well, so you might want to jump on that deal while it lasts.
