Of course, I’ve heard all the unfavorable sentiments surrounding dual stimulation or “rabbit style” vibrators. The most common criticism being, how they rarely work with the everybody’s unique anatomy. Yet, I find myself choosing my sex toys like I choose my partners. Meaning, I’d never allowed a bit of a bad reputation scare me off.
For those of you who may be new to sex toys and may be wondering why The Embrace G-Tickler is called a “rabbit style” vibrator. Allow me to explain. This term refers to the two independent, stimulation arms the vibrator has as its design. These flexible arms allow for simultaneous penetration and clitoral stimulation from a single toy.
The Embrace G-Tickler is from a recently released Cal Exotics line. The Embrace collection offers affordable vibrators that are waterproof, USB rechargeable, and constructed from a high quality, satiny silicone. The G-Tickler, is one of several vibrators in the line that have an extra feature described as the “rolling pleasure ball”. This is a new innovation to the Cal Exotics brand, but not completely new to the sex toy industry. From what I’ve seen from online videos, the pleasure ball is similar in design to the feature found in Lelo’s Ora II.
Features & Functions
Each of the G-Tickler’s dual stimulation arms has their own individual motors. The G-Tickler, in particular, is endowed with three separate motors, distributed between the two flexible stimulation arms. Two of which are located in the 5.25” flexible, insertable shaft. This arm, intended for penetration, gradually thickens and has a curve designed to stimulate the G-spot. Thus the name G-Tickler.
The smaller more flexible arm, which houses the rolling pleasure ball, and measures in at 2.5 inches is noticeably more pliable. This added flexibility allows for a better chance of the user maneuvering the arm into a position that ensures the preferred amount of contact with the clitoris.
This, along with the three different speed settings, combines for a much more individualized experience. As well as the option to disable the rolling pleasure ball, which is great for those times when pin point clitoral stimulation is just not what you’re craving. Far as I can tell, Cal Exotics covered all their bases with the G-Tickler.
Surprisingly, each arm has its own separate control buttons. Each of these represented by a colored light when in use. Red for the pleasure ball, and blue for the insertable arm. Although, I found it nice to be able to use each arm independently of the other. I also disliked that the buttons are placed so closely together. Therefore, making it hard to differentiate between the two, by touch alone.
My first few times using the G-Tickler, I found myself frustrated by accidentally pushing the wrong buttons. As in, pressing the control for the pleasure ball, when I intended to press the control for the insertable arm. However, I found with some time and with more practice, I eventually grew accustomed to their placement.
Since the features of each arm are controlled independently from the other. You can use one or the other, or both at the same time. Whatever strikes your fancy. This is where the state-of-the-art memory chip really comes in handy. This chip stores the last settings in use before being shut off. So the next time you decide to use the G-Tickler, when you turn it back on, it automatically “remembers” which specific settings you were using when you last turned it off. Saving you the time of working through the functions to find your preferred combination.
A First Time For Everything
I want to point out, this was my first experience with using a dual stimulation vibrator. Even with all the unfavorable things I’ve heard about them, I wanted to give the G-Tickler a fair chance. The G-Tickler, has a few functions that captured my attention right off the bat. To name a couple, the dual stimulation aspect and the g-spot targeted shaft, looked promising. But the icing on the cake for me was the rolling pleasure ball feature.
Since receiving oral pleasure is one my favorite sexual delights, you can bet I’d love to find a toy that sufficiently replicates an agile tongue moving smoothly over my clit. Shockingly, the rolling pleasure ball replicates sensations similar to those felt during cunnilingus. At least adequately enough to satisfy me. Though I’ll freely admit, it still can’t hold a candle to the skills of a well-practiced lover.
Despite my genuine excitement for trying the G-Tickler, I discovered right away it was going to take some time to figure out how to use it successfully with my anatomy and preferences. To start off, I had some trouble positioning the smaller arm to the ideal position for the rolling pleasure ball to target my clit.
Next, I found that it took a bit of finagling for me to find my favorite combination of the 7 different vibration/pulsation settings. Along with the 3 pleasure ball speeds. Lastly, I found the pleasure ball’s mechanical noise a tad distracting.
On a more positive note, I’ve broken from my tradition of favoring steady vibrations. This being the first toy, where I actually found the vibrational patterns enjoyable for a change. These, coupled with the textured silicone covering the ball teased my clit to the edge of a sweet orgasm. Once I engaged the two motors in the insertable arm of the vibrator to my ideal setting, let’s just say thank goodness I was soaking in the tub. Because I had the first of many powerful orgasms to come. I had finally found the right combination of settings.
With A Little Luck
So this wasn’t exactly a match made in heaven, and like a mismatched relationship, it took a bit of extra effort. However, once I finally got the hang of the controls, found the best position for the clit targeted arm, and grew accustomed to the loudness of the pleasure ball. It was smooth sailing. I just had to work a little harder than usual to find the right recipe of pressure and vibration to guarantee a powerful orgasm.
Overall, I’d have to say this vibrator is middle of the road. A nice affordable option with an abundance of functions. Sadly, with more functions comes more chances of error. Its just one of those things that come with the territory of rabbits style vibrators. They are so much more complex than either a simple clit vibe or dildo used together or alone. So I learned a valuable lesson about dual stim vibes. That is that, you just can’t cross your fingers and hope for the best. Dual simulation toys need a bit of luck and finesse, as well as patience. I may have had to put some effort in to my orgasm with the G-Tickler, but it was worth it in the end.
