Review: Broad City Precious Package Love Egg

When I heard the news that Lovehoney were going to be launching a Broad City sex toy collection at ANME, I was rather surprised. I had never expected or even thought about a collaboration between a sex toy company and a mainstream tv channel like Comedy Central before, but the surprise was a welcome one. My partner and I love to curl up at the end of the day and watch an episode or two of Broad City before engaging in an evening of fun and intimacy so this range seemed perfectly suited to us. If you’re a fan of the show like us then this range will be right up your street, but there should be something suitable for everyone who’s fond of bright and colorful sex toys.

Broad City Precious Package Love Egg VibratorThe packaging for this range is one of the first things that got my attention. It’s clean, clear and full of bright colours and sass. It definitely tickles my fancy and is super on point branding wise. The Precious Package Love Egg arrived in a white cardboard sleeve that had Broad City written across the top and image of the two stars of the show, Abbi and llana near the bottom. The back showed another picture of the pair along with some of their quotes and some basic product information regarding batteries, materials and cleaning.

I quite like the appearance of this love egg although I would have preferred it if there had been no pink involved. The controller is mostly black with a splash of pink detailing around the buttons, which actually looks great, and it reads ‘Carpe Dayum’ on the front and Broad City on the back. Attached to the controller is a medium length wire that connects to the bright pink egg. It’s not as in-your-face as the packaging or some of the other products from this collection, but it’s not the most basic design either. The only thing outside of the pink that I wasn’t crazy about was the seam on the egg. It felt noticeable at times if I’d scrimped on the lube.

Precious Package is made from a PU coated ABS Plastic. This coating makes the surface extremely smooth to the touch and reduces any drag that the plastic would ordinarily have. It feels almost matte-like and attracts barely any lint, dust or pet hair. I wouldn’t say that lubricant is essential during use as the egg is pretty petite, but for beginners or people who don’t produce much natural lubrication, a slather of the water-based bottled stuff may make insertion more comfortable and reduce the feel of the seam. After use, simply rinse off the egg and wash with soapy water. Don’t wet the controller though. This should just be wiped down as deemed necessary.

Broad City Precious Package Love Egg VibratorBattery wise, this toy takes two double A’s and these are placed inside the controller. Simply unscrew the base, place inside the compartment as directed and screw the base back on firmly. I found it easy to remove and replace which was unusual as these compartments are often stiff.

To start the vibrations press the up arrow on the remote. You can tap this button four times to take you throw the four available settings. The lights will turn on beside the numbers on the control panel to indicate which setting is being used. To cycle back down the vibrations or turn the toy off press the down arrow.

I have had a couple of Lovehoney’s wired love eggs before (this BASICS one and this Power Play one) and had been reasonably impressed on those occasions so I hoped this one would be on the same wavelength. The first setting was a good start. It was a tiny bit rumbly and very low-pitched but not tickle-like or weak in terms of intensity. It starts to pick up in strength from setting two but this is where the vibrations also start to become buzzy. I thought the last setting was hand-numbingly high frequency so I couldn’t even attempt to use this clitorally as I knew it would desensitize me and leave my clit tingling in the wrong ways.

Broad City Precious Package Love Egg VibratorThe egg was easy to insert as its small and slim so I think it should be more than manageable for beginners to sex toys or people who are completely new to vaginal penetration. It has a maximum girth of 3.4 inches and just 3 inches of length, which makes it a great option for newcomers. It also has a rounded tip to make insertion and wear comfortable. It’s a traditionally oval-shaped egg with no curves to it, do it doesn’t hit any internal sweet spots for me, but it does provide some good old vaginal stimulation which can be just as fun.

I have to admit that the Precious Package is not the strongest egg on the market and probably not even one of the strongest of its category, but I can see where it may have its place in a collection. I personally struggled to orgasm with it on its own so I asked my partner for assistance.

Broad City Precious Package Love Egg VibratorHe blindfolded me and took control of the remote which instantly improved the feel of the vibrations. I felt that being blindfolded increased my sensitivity and heightened the sensation to make the vibrations feel better than they usually would. There’s also the added excitement of not knowing what setting he’s going to use or whether he’s going to incorporate something else into the mix.

I believe the anticipation is what made the end result possible. I did end up reaching orgasm on those occasions that I was blindfolded with my partner in control so I’d say that this toy is definitely more of a couples experience for us than a solo use vibrator. The thrill was all in the tease. The vibrations just weren’t enough for me on their own, possibly because of the buzziness, so this toy didn’t really work without the element of surprise and suspense. It may be different for the non-power queens of the world and I’d love to hear about it if so, but I personally won’t be using it to masturbate with.

Broad City Precious Package Love Egg VibratorOverall, I like the aesthetics of the Precious Package, the branding is on point and it has easy to use controls, but it didn’t have the right frequency for me to enjoy the vibrations alone. If they had been deeper and not so high-pitched then it may have been another story. I’d be happy to recommend this to couples wanting to explore toys together, wanting some foreplay fun or simply wanting to explore something gentle as an introduction, but the rechargeable toys in this range may be better suited to the more initiated toy users.

Review: Broad City Tuesday 7am Classic Vibrator

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.

Broad City Tuesday 7am Classic VibratorThe 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.

Broad City Tuesday 7am Classic VibratorBattery 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.

Broad City Tuesday 7am Classic VibratorI 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.

Broad City Tuesday 7am Classic VibratorLoud 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.
