I recently received the Calla vibe from Babeland. The Calla vibe is part of Fun Factory‘s line of G4 toys. The Calla has 5 speeds and 3 vibration patterns. It is rechargeable through their patented Click-and-Charge technology. All of the vibes can be used with the same charging cord.
The Calla is made of high quality silicone, which means that it is durable, hypoallergenic and easy to clean. One negative to the oh so soft feeling of the silicone, it is a dust and fluff magnetic. Calla should be cleaned before and after each use. Calla can be cleaned with mild soap and warm water. I used some of the toy wipes that I had on hand. Fun Factory does offer a cleaner for their toys as well. You should only use water based lubricants with this toy because using silicone based lube could cause your vibe to develop a very unpleasant smell.
It is worth noting that besides the Calla vibe only the Paul and Paulina is suitable for anal use. This is because the other toys don’t have anything at their base to stop them from being pulled farther into the body by the anal muscles.
- not too big
- easy to hold on to
- lint magnet
- can be hand-numbing to use
- charging time vs. usage time
- my clit was too far back to get any joy from the protrusion at the base
Overall, I can say that I love this vibe. Yes, I had to use a little lubrication to get started, but it was well worth the effort. I am not really a huge fan of insertable toys, at least ones this size or bigger. The Calla measures with the handle around 9″ long. 5 of those inches can be inserted. The diameter of this vibe is 1 5/8 inches and it is 2 inches wide. Calla starts small at the tip and gradually gets bigger. Its powerful vibrations are a thing of joy for me. I am not 100% for the boost button either. It worked better for me to start out by pushing the boost button, instead of after I had been using the regular speeds. The patterns were ok, but the speeds got me where I needed to be a lot faster.
Pattern 1- a steady vroooooooommmm
Pattern 2-feels like a fast paced beating drum to me-bumpbumpbumpbump- continuous
Pattern 3- vroomvroom vroomvroom– continuous
If I could increase the intensity of the patterns, I would be more inclined to use them.
Although I want to give this vibe 5 stars, I can’t. Even with the cons that I have listed the major turn off for this toy is that after a minimum of 6 hours of charging time, it only gives me less than an hour to use it. If I use Calla on high, I can expect around 30 minutes.That makes me very unhappy. The plus side to this is that it has only died on me once. I know some of you are wondering how this could ever be a plus. Its a plus because I listened more carefully to how it sounded and I knew when it was starting to get low on juice.
