Pretty in Pink

I got a new vibrator to review! This one is called Pretty In Pastel by California Exotic Novelties and can be bought at the shop I trust.

How do I use it?
Pretty in Pastel is meant to be used a vaginally, but can also be used on the clitoris and erogenous regions. The neck tapers out to a bulbed end, so it is possible to use anally, but I would recommend against it because it's slightly wider than the rest of the toy.

It's the size of a traditional vibe (in fact, it is a traditional vibe), and is slightly textured in a bas relief (low relief) style. In other words, it's slightly raised. It could bother those who don't care for texture or complete newbies to sex toys, but for those don't mind light texture or have had one or two toys before, it shouldn't be much of a bother. It's great for the tub or shower.

What is Pretty in Pastel made of and how do you clean it?
The toy is made of plastic and has a satiny finish. It felt a little bit like silicone to be honest. It has a slight drag that can be minimized by adding your choice of lube to it. It has a swirled texture that can be slightly felt during penetration.

Plastic ranks as an eight on the Eden scale, which means that it is phthalate free, food grade material, latex free and hypo allergenic. It can be cleaned with your favorite toy cleaner or soap and warm water.

How big and strong is Pretty in Pastel?
It's about the same size as a traditional vibe. The widest insertable circumference of the toy is four inches, with the narrowest (the neck of the toy) is about three and a half inches. The bulb at the bottom of the toy has a circumference of five inches. The whole length is seven inches, with an insertable length of five and a half inches. The diameter of the toy is 1 1/4 inches. The whole thing weighs about 0.2 pounds.

The toy is about the same strength as any other traditional vibrator. It runs on two AA batteries, which are not included. There's a little paper insert in the battery compartment that tells how to place the batteries (remember to remove the insert). I had a little trouble with this and at first, thought the toy was broken. After playing with it for five minutes, it finally worked. To turn the toy on, click on the button on the bottom; to turn off, click the button till it turns off.

It has three intensities; it starts off with a moderate intensity, then moderately strong then strong. It's stronger than  most bullets or finger vibes, but not as strong as say a Hitachi or Bimini Ocean. The intensities are a mix of rumbly, but slightly buzzy. It didn't make my fingers go numb.

How was the Pretty in Pastel packaged?
It came in a minimal plastic Cal Exotics thin plastic box. You can see the toy through all sides, and there is a little window in the front to display the toy, along with "Pretty in Pastel" written on the front. The right side talks about Cal Exotics, and the left side proudly displays the toy. On the back, it talks about the toy's features, how it's waterproof, and how big it is. It's probably meant for short term storage, but if you take care of it, it can last for a while. It's good for gift giving if you don't mind showing off your toy.

What do you think of Pretty in Pastel?
I personally thought it was going to be a one time vibe, but after using it on my clit, I've really grown to like it. It has enough power and length to satisfy my stubborn clit, but not too much that it numbs it.

I've been needing a toy that makes me squirt in the tub, and sadly, I didn't find one. Until now. I'm really impressed with Cal Exotics and I'll be recommending this toy to a good friend of mine.
