When I heard the news that Lovehoney would be introducing a Broad City sex toy collection at ANME, I was quite surprised. I never expected a collaboration between a sex toy company and Comedy Central, or any other tv channel for that matter, but the surprise was a welcome one. My partner and I love to sit and chill together on an evening and watch an episode or two of this show, then follow it up with a night of buzzing and intimacy, so this range seemed very well suited to us. If you’re a fan of Broad City or simply a lover of bright and colorful sex toys then there should be something suitable in this range for you too.
The packaging for this collection was one of the first things that caught my attention. It’s clean, bright and full of sass. That combination is right up my street and definitely tickles my fancy. The Tuesday 7am Classic Vibrator arrived in a white cardboard sleeve with Broad City written across the top and an image of the two stars of the show, Abbi and llana, near the bottom. The back of the sleeve showed another picture of the pair along with some quotes from the show and basic product information regarding materials, cleaning and batteries.
I had specifically asked for this toy because of the gorgeous colouring. It’s not often enough that I come across funky sky blue sex toys so when I spot one, my head just zones in on it and I don’t care what it is, I just have to have it. There’s pink writing on each side, one reads Tuesday 7am and the other side reads Broad City. In terms of how it looks overall, I was pretty pleased with it although I would have rather have had no pink whatsoever. Just for a change.
The Tuesday 7am is made from a smooth plastic so has little to no drag to it. It is advised to use water-based lubricant with it anyway, so I did as suggested. I really didn’t need to use more than a small pump or two as the drag is non-existent and its girth is slim. It glided in pretty easily with just my natural lubrication levels, but this obviously differs from person to person depending on a multitude of reasons. Either way, I think it should be manageable for beginners to sex toys as long as they can insert a finger comfortably.
Battery operated vibrators seem to be very prevalent in the Broad City collection and this one requires two double A’s. These are not included. To insert them simply unscrew the base and place inside the compartment as directed then screw the base back on. It’s important that its placed back in position tightly or the toy will no longer be waterproof. As it is compatible with water you can take it in the bath or shower for aqua related adventures or easily clean it with warm soapy water after use.
No buttons or control panels are needed to operate this toy as it has a dial built into the base. Turn it clockwise to begin the vibrations and continue twisting until you reach full intensity. Turn it anti clockwise to decrease vibrations and turn off. The downside to a dial control means that the vibrator can only emit one single speed at a few different strengths. I prefer constant speeds to patterns so this works out fine for me, but if you prefer a variety of functions then the Yas Kween Bullet Vibrator may be a better fit for you.
I hadn’t tried a new classic vibrator since the Dr Feelgood back in October, so I wanted to see whether the Tuesday 7am would get me back on board the classic vibe train and take me to orgasm city or whether it would leave me with broad disappointment. Classic vibrators can be used in two main ways. Internally or externally. And when I say internal, I mean vaginal use only. There’s no flared base on a classic vibrator to stop it from traveling into the depths of the anus, so please don’t even consider it. It’s super unsafe.
This makes them versatile and great for traveling with as they’re a two for one sort of package deal. It doesn’t matter whether you’re craving clitoral or vaginal play as this can do either. I decided to try external use first to get a feel for the vibrations, so I applied a touch of lube to myself and the toy for comfort and pressed it up against the spot. I turned the vibrations up to full intensity as I need max power for clitoral stimulation and was surprised that the vibrations weren’t horribly buzzy. I was expecting your average surface level sensations, but that’s not exactly what I got. I wouldn’t call the vibrations rumbly either, just sort of in between and half decent. I could use more strength, which doesn’t surprise me at all, but I can still reach an orgasm if given ten minutes of constant use with firm pressure. That’s not bad for a battery operated vibrator and a fussy clitted power queen.
Internally, I’m not as demanding when it comes down to the strength of my vibrations so I knew this would be fine for that purpose. It has a tapered tip that doesn’t look too pointed or stabby and it wasn’t. It doesn’t poke out at my cervix or cause me any discomfort. Sensation wise, there’s no curve to the shaft so g-spot play was out of the question and I was left to explore regular vaginal stimulation. I can’t climax from insertables alone usually, although I do think toys like this have a place in my collection for warming up to dildos or PIV. It’s not a toy I’d ever use for a solid masturbation session as it simply couldn’t wow me, but someone who loves internal stimulation and doesn’t need a jackhammer may think it’s wonderful.
Loud was what I was expecting from this battery-operated motor with a hard plastic exterior, but I’d put it at about average in terms of noise. It’s nothing that a closed bedroom door and a bit of background music couldn’t disguise. It’s not as quiet as a rechargeable toy would be, but it’s not excruciatingly loud by any means. I think it’d be fine for people who need some discretion as long as their situation allows for a level of background noise like the radio or tv.
Overall, I think the Tuesday 7am Vibrator would be a nice tool for beginners. It’s not intimidating in terms of packaging, aesthetics or dimensions and the power is not too intense or overwhelming. I liked it for clitoral use but for me personally it didn’t do much as an internal stimulator. The vibrations alone weren’t enough to get me off, but maybe some extra width and an added clitoral vibrator would have helped. I think this is a toy that’s going to be used to start sessions, but never one that will the finish the job. That may make it redundant for some people, but I’ll get some use from it. It’s never going to be my favourite though as it’s just an average classic vibrator with cute branding.
You can purchase the Broad City Tuesday 7am Classic Vibrator (£14.99) from Lovehoney. I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!
