California Exotics has some awesome toys and they have some not so awesome toys. Then there are the toys that fall somewhere in between. The Elation falls somewhere in between for me. It is a toy that strays from what I usually like, mainly because it requires batteries. After having tried some very enjoyable rechargeable toys, I try to stay away from the ones that require batteries. The Elation takes 2 AAA batteries. It is a small, cute toy that kind of looks like a bug.
When you press the on/off button, it sounds like a flying saucer, or at least how I imagine one to sound. It isn’t a very loud toy, so you don’t have to be worried that someone will hear it through your bedroom door.
- 10 vibration functions
- easy to use
- easy to clean
- Latex free
- Phthalates free
- not rechargeable
- incredibly buzzy
I do like this toy, but the buzziness is a huge turnoff for me. It is incredibly uncomfortable when I touch it to my naughty bits. Ordinarily, I would use a toy like this as a teaser to the main event, but the buzziness succeeds at pulling me out of the moment. It simply does not feel good on any part of my body. It does have a lot of power, which I normally love, but in this instance it is simply the wrong kind of power. If they were to take this toy back to the drawing board, make it rechargeable and give it less buzzy vibrations, it would definitely be a toy I could use. As it stands, it just gives me a very bad sensation all over. It essentially, hurts to place this onto any part of my body. I am sad to say I was disappointed in this toy.
If you want to use lube, I suggest that you stick to water based lubricants, since this is made of silicone. To clean this toy after use, I recommend using toy cleaner, wipes or just plain old antibacterial soap with warm water. You should make sure that it is completely dry before putting it away and it would be best stored in a bag away from other toys.
On a scale of 1-5, I can definitely give it 3 for the design, material it is made of and the power behind it. I have to take away 2 stars for the buzziness of the vibrations, which was not something that I enjoy. This may be the perfect toy for someone who is less sensitive than I am.
