Review: Kiiroo Pearl 2 Interactive G-Spot Vibrator

Every year there seems to be a rise in the amount of sex toy designs that are created to be used with apps, websites, remotes, partners, headsets and other interactive resources. I think this is a category that’s only going to continue to grow and improve as the demands for these products increase. Technology is becoming more prevalent within all areas of life so it makes sense that it’s now reaching the sex toy market at full force. When I was presented with the opportunity to test out a new and improved interactive idea from Kiiroo, I was looking forward to seeing how this teledildonic device would work in practice and what exactly it could do that similar options couldn’t.

Kiiroo’s Pearl 2 comes in a white and purple box with a product shot on the front, specs on one side and a brief description plus the compatible interactive features listed on the back. Inside, the toy rests upon some foam casing alongside the charging cable, warranty card, quick set-up guide and a little card that tells you where to find the full user manual. The warranty is for one year after purchase and can be registered at this section of their website. A downside to the contents of the box was the lack of storage. It’s disappointing to me as this retails at just under $100 and it wouldn’t have upped the cost much to throw in a drawstring pouch.

It has been made from a smooth silicone that feels decent to the touch and has all the usual benefits of being the only soft material that’s completely body safe without being rock hard. It is odourless, non-toxic, phthalate free and hypoallergenic. It is soft but has a ton of drag to its surface so a thicker water-based lubricant has been required for comfortable, friction-free use. It attracts lint, not obsessively so, but it’s fully waterproof so can be rinsed before each use to remove traces of fluff and pet hair. After use, soapy water and a thorough rinse will clean it up perfectly.

Charging wise, there is a port located on the base that is covered with self-healing silicone. Stiff at first but this becomes easier after several charges. The light on the front will blink slowly to indicate that it’s charging and turn to a steady green glow once complete. A full refresh takes about two hours and gives around an hour of use. There are two other light alerts to watch out for. Red and flashing means the battery is running low and yellow means there’s an update that needs checking or an error has occurred.

To control the Pearl, there is one button. Power on by pressing down for four seconds, a solid blue colour will show to indicate the Bluetooth mode has been activated, press again for a white light to head to touch sensitive mode. Each press after that goes to a preset mode of vibration. To turn off press and hold down again for a few seconds. Having just one button sounds simple and practical, but for me, it caused massive frustration and broken nails. I have brittle nails, amongst other brittle areas of my body, and they bent back and snapped every time I tried to connect with the button. This is because it’s stiff and not raised enough. It doesn’t stick out enough to be comfortable to interact with and its hard to find in the dark even with the light glistening. It irritated the hell out of me and would absolutely need to be improved on a future version for me to consider getting one.

Kiiroo Pearl 2 G-Spot VibratorAs mentioned above there are a couple of settings that aren’t preset vibrations and that may leave some questions lingering. So to answer them, the Bluetooth mode is the only one that can be used to receive signals from a partner. You have to go to the website feelme (or the FeelConnect app) to set up the device to connect with a partner or use the interactive content provided.

Follow the instructions given to pair the Pearl to the website or app. The touch sensitive mode is almost self explanatory. It responds intuitively to touch, making the surface vibrate whenever it comes into contact with the body. You can see from the guide where the sensitive zones are to figure out how to target the vibrations to your advantage.

It has 7.8 inches of overall length, with just under five inches being usable. It doesn’t bash my cervix during internal use but it’s theoretically long enough to hit the g-spot. It doesn’t hit mine but that is an issue that doesn’t relate to size. Girth wise, there’s a maximum of 4.5 inches around the widest point which is on the slim side for this style of vibrator. It would be a great size for someone who’s new to sex toys/penetration or simply prefers a smaller insertable. Do remember that there’s no flared base so this should never be used for anal.

So it’s marketed as a “g-spot vibrator” but for me it was everything but that. It didn’t do much for me as an internal toy because it didn’t hit the spots it promises to. It’s simply not curved enough for this kind of contact. The head does not differ much in girth from the rest of the shaft and it has a lack of defined curve/angle. It functions better as a classic vibrator from my perspective as it doesn’t have the right shape or definition to work for my g-spot. I like classic vibrators every once in a while although there needs to be at least one of the followings things: a taped tip, texture or a thick girth. This has none of those features so I wasn’t enthused with it at all.

Kiiroo Pearl 2 G-Spot VibratorUntil this point, I couldn’t decide how I felt about the Pearl. I had written a list that consisted of a handful of cons and a handful of pros, with the pros being some of the basic things like rechargeable, body-safe, waterproof etc. I wasn’t particularly impressed as the most important features seemed to have been overlooked (good control panel, shape, dimensions) but then I turned on the motor and the pros list began to look a little brighter.

The vibrations were rumbly and resonate well below the surface. I felt that they were fairly strong and suitable for most users. I can’t say that they’d impress a hardened power queen but they were just about enough to bring me to a clitoral orgasm. I stuck with the constant vibration mode as I didn’t want to frustrate myself trying to change to any of the other functions. The shape isn’t too bad for clitoral stimulation either. I wouldn’t argue with a tapered tip for more precise contact, but broad stimulation can be fun sometimes too.

People seem to be asking for sex toys that do more than just vibrate these days and the Pearl 2 is a perfect example of that. You can pair with a partner through the FeelConnect app and allow them to control the device from anywhere in the world. This is the perfect feature for those of us in long-distance relationships or those who travel often for work as it allows us to be involved in a partners pleasure even from a distance. Other features available include listening to erotica, watching porn videos, engaging in live cam shows, playing games and even VR for those who own headsets.

Overall, there are things I like about Kiiroo’s second generation Pearl but it became apparent to me over time that the focus was on making it interactive, rather than anything else. I would need someone to take a harder look at the build and shape for this to get full marks. The button needs to be raised from the surface more and easier to press whilst the shape needs a revamp and a bit more research. A curve or angled head is the prominent feature of almost every other g-spot marketed sex toy and this lacks that entirely. It needs that if it’s going to be advertised as a toy that will hit that spot successfully. As a clitoral or classic vibrator this could work well for people who like decently powered, deep sensations and want to explore interactive content for the first time.

You can purchase the Pearl 2 ($99/£73.95) in black or purple from Kiiroo.

Review: Satisfyer Pro Deluxe Next Generation

From the very first moment of my encounter with my first suction stimulator I knew I was onto something new and exciting. It’s something I’d never experienced before but I fell in love with it instantly. I think I even love it as much as my favourite bullet vibrator now. I have a multitude of these toys at this point so there are naturally some that I like more than others. Out of the five original Satisfyers there was one that I didn’t particularly like and one that I felt indifferent about. The Pro Deluxe was the latter. When Satisfyer announced that they’d be releasing next generation editions of each model I asked them if they’d be willing to send me the updated version to review. I wanted to see if there were any changes that would redeem the Deluxe and make me fall in love with it. After a thorough testing I still can’t say that this model is a favourite of mine although I do think I got on with it better this time around and I can see it working for some people.

Satisfyer Pro Deluxe Next GenerationThe packaging for the Deluxe was as expected, minimalistic and classic. It hasn’t changed from the original models at all. It still shows a product shot on the front and back along with a few key features printed on the sides. Inside the box, the toy rested inside some plastic casing alongside the charging cable and glossy user manual. It does not come with any storage which is a minor downside. I’m holding out hope that they’ll include a small pouch with future products.

It’s made up of a smooth plastic surface and a high-grade silicone head. Both of these materials are free from phthalates and latex and are completely body-safe. You have no need to worry about bad odours or bacteria trapping itself in the pores. It can be used with any water-based lubricants and I recommend applying some to the rim of the nozzle and some to the clitoral area. Don’t use too much or it will be hard to keep in position but some will make use more comfortable. It’s fully waterproof so cleaning is no chore. It can be rinsed with warm soapy water after each use and simply left to dry. You can also remove the nozzle for a more thorough clean and the heads can be sanitized properly with a 10% bleach solution.

Satisfyer Pro Deluxe Next GenerationThe Pro Deluxe Next Generation is rechargeable via a USB and magnetic clip system. Just attach the clips to the magnetic prongs on the base of the device and wait for the flashing light to start. It goes steady when the charge is finished. It takes around ninety minutes or so for a full charge and offers the same amount of use time on the lower intensities. I can get several uses from each charge and it holds battery life well between those uses.

A key difference between the Pro Deluxe and the Pro Deluxe Next Generation is the control panel. It now has two clear buttons that function as I wanted them to on the original model. You press the four wave button down for a couple of seconds to turn on. This should start on the lowest intensity. You can then tap this button up to eleven times to scroll through the rest of the options or press and hold it down for a few seconds to turn off. The two wave button will take you back down through the intensities allowing you to go back a setting if you accidentally turn it up too high. I’m really glad they implemented this control panel this time around as it’s much easier to use and removes some of my previous irritations with the product.

Satisfyer Pro Deluxe Next GenerationSo, who is best suited to a product like the Pro Deluxe? Someone who likes direct clitoral contact. If you know that precise pressure in this area is overwhelming, numbing or uncomfortable for you then this style of toy won’t be suited to you. It will not work for everyone. I personally prefer pinpoint and direct stimulation so these models work well for my preferences and needs. The Pro Deluxe works by parting the labia to reveal the clitoris and placing it over the area at whatever angle feels best.

What were my previous issues with the Pro Deluxe? I had three main problems with it. The first was the control panel which has since been addressed. The second issue was more of a personal preference rather than a fault of the product itself. The shape. I just prefer long-handled suction vibrators as they seem to be easier to hold and I can vary the way that I position the toy to keep things interesting or vary the amount of pressure I’m using. For those reasons, the Satisfyer 2 and Pro 2 are more comfortable for me to use and give me the variation I’m looking for. If mobility or reach issues are something that you struggle with, the longer handled models will probably be better for you too.

Satisfyer Pro Deluxe Next GenerationThe third issue was the biggest hinderance. If you look back at the previous models (minus the Penguin) then you’ll notice that they each have heads that are made from a thick oval of silicone. The Pro Deluxe has a dramatically thinner nozzle which doesn’t provide the same amount of comfort and suction as the others do. It feels less intense to me and it’s somewhat of a battle to find a placement over my clitoris that allows me to feel enough of the sensations.

I could put this down to my anatomy as I have a small clitoris and innie labia which doesn’t seem to fit with the design of this flatter nozzle. If you have fleshier labia than I do and/or a large clitoris then this may be more inclined to work for you. I looked at this as a downside last time but having tested this again I have half changed my mind on this. I think it’s wonderful to see different vulva types being accommodated for and hopefully this means that there will now be a suitable Satisfyer model for everyone who likes direct suction stimulation.

Satisfyer Pro Deluxe Next Generation

So whilst this might not be the perfect model for me, I can’t fault the level of intensities that it has. It doesn’t force orgasms from my body like some of the others do but this is due to the nozzle shape not being right for my anatomy rather than a fault of the product. I can orgasm with this although it takes several minutes more than my beloved Pro 2 Next Generation or Pro Penguin Next Generation. I admittedly won’t use this as often as other models as I like quick, reliable orgasms from my toys but it could be fun to use during sex.

As I said in my review of the original Pro Deluxe, none of the Satisfyer models are completely quiet. The mechanisms involved simply won’t allow total silence. Having said that, this version makes slightly less noise than the original when used on high. If discretion is a must have for you, then you could easily drown out the sound of the motor by covering up with a duvet or playing some sort of background noise.

You can purchase the Satisfyer Pro Deluxe Next Generation (£38.40) from Amazon. I will update with more links when retailers update their stock to include this new model.

Review: Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation

It’s no secret that I’m extremely fond of clitoral suction vibrators, so when I spotted pictures of the soon-to-be released Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next Generation back in June, I posted on Instagram about how adorable it was. A couple of months later and one was on the way for me to review – courtesy of the lovely folks over at Peepshow Toys. When I got it in my hands it was everything I’d imagined it to be and more. I’m simply obsessed with its adorable on-point aesthetic and the addition of the hot pink bow-tie around the Penguins neck. It is everything the original should have been. It now has a colour scheme that accurately resembles the animal it’s named after and bares strong resemble to Pingu, a tv character that I adored throughout my childhood.

The packaging for this product was as expected, simplistic and classic. This hasn’t changed from the original models apart from the small mention of the awards the Next Generation Penguin won for its design. It still shows a product shot on the front and back along with a few key features printed on the sides. Inside the box, the vibrator rests within some plastic casing alongside the charging cable and user manual. It still does not come with any storage. I’m holding out hope for future generations to include a small satin pouch.

Satisfyer’s Pro Penguin is one of three rechargeable models and charges via a USB and magnetic clip system. Attach the clips to the magnets on the base and plug the USB into an available port. I noticed that this cable disconnected the charge easily unless it was placed on a completely flat surface. This was odd as all of the other cables for my rechargeable models seemed to be more sturdy than this one. The manual suggests that it could take up to eight hours for a first charge but it definitely didn’t take that long. It was ready to go in just under three hours and charges in just one and a half now. The lights on the control panel flash whilst charging and go steady once complete. You can get around ninety minutes of use per charge depending on the intensity used.

It is made from high-grade, silky smooth silicone and hard plastic. Both of these materials are completely body-safe, latex and phthalate free, hypoallergenic and odourless. Satisfyer recommend applying a coating of water-based lubricant around the rim of the nozzle for comfort during use. I would agree with this as comfort is a key factor when masturbating and the more relaxed I am, the better my experience tends to be. After use, rinse the fully waterproof device with warm soapy water then leave to air dry. You can remove the nozzle for deeper cleaning if you wish too. I’d recommend this as there are currently no replacement heads available for the Penguin.

Outside of the obvious appearance change, there’s another distinctive difference between the Penguin and the next Generation Penguin. The control panel. It still has two buttons but this time around they do different things. Press the four wave (bottom) button down for a couple of seconds to turn on. It will start on the lowest intensity. You can then tap this button up to eleven times to scroll through the rest of the intensity options or press and hold to turn off again. The two wave (top) button will take you back down through the intensities. I know a few people who mentioned that they’d like the option to go back a setting so I’m really pleased that Satisfyer took this on board and removed my previous frustrations.

Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next GenerationIn my opinion, people who like direct clitoral contact are best suited to a product like this. It’s not the type of toy that can work for everyone. For example, people who find constant pressure/attention towards their clitoris overwhelming, numbing or uncomfortable would not be well-suited to the Satisfyer.

This also wouldn’t be the best option for someone who likes to be very active and involved in a masturbation session as once the Penguin is in place comfortably it doesn’t need to be moved again until you’ve finished. I have tried moving it but finds this just reduces the sensation and breaks the suction which makes orgasms next to impossible.

To find your comfortable placement, lay back and part your labia slightly to reveal the clitoris. Place the nozzle over the area at whatever angle feels best then let the toy do the rest. It’s absolutely wonderful for lazy masturbators, people in a rush or those who just want something quick and reliable. I personally love it although this wasn’t surprising. Clitoral suction vibrators have proved over and over again to be successful for me and this one wasn’t going to be excluded. I can be presented with an orgasm from setting seven and above or even five and six on days where I’m more sensitive. The lower settings are ideal for teasing, warming-up or cooling down before round two.

If you’re a person who prefers broad stimulation to the angled tip of a bullet vibrator then you might find the Penguin too precise and intense for you, even on the lower settings. I’d also advise caution for clit-owners who are particularly sensitive. It may be better to start out with one of the slightly less intense battery operated versions of the Satisfyer and see whether the stimulation works for you before investing in one of the stronger, pricier models. I think the Next Generation Penguin is actually now the most intense model because of its different nozzle shape. The smaller, boxier nozzle seems to refine the sensations more than the regular oval-shaped heads.

Satisfyer Pro Penguin Next GenerationNoise is one of the first things people ask me regarding these toys so I’ll stick with the phrase I’ve used in every response. None of these suction stimulators can be completely quiet due to the mechanisms involved. Having said that, I do think this version is quieter than some of the other models. You will still want to play some background music if discretion is a necessity to you for whatever reason but it’s not the loudest suction device I’ve tried.

Overall, I usually prefer longer handled vibrators for this type of stimulation but in this case I can look past the shorter body and petite dimensions. It’s so comfortable to hold which I think makes all the difference. I will say that this may make use more difficult for people who have mobility/reach issues and in those situations I’d recommend the new Satisfyer Pro 2 instead. Complaints wise, I don’t have any to make on this occasion. I feel that all of my previous constructive criticisms have been addressed with this upgrade (minus the lack of storage bag). It now has better on-brand aesthetics, a convenient and easier to use control panel and a quieter motor. I’m looking forward to seeing what is next for this brand and whether they will continue to improve their products to leave their customers fully satisfied.

Review: Satisfyer Pro 2 Next Generation

It’s no secret that I loved the original Satisfyer Pro 2. I raved about it on my blog, Twitter and the Lovehoney forum for months after I received it. It is still one of my all-time favourite toys and part of my regular rotation, but I think it might finally be time to demote it. Satisfyer contacted me recently and asked if I’d be interested in reviewing the Pro 2 Next Generation and obviously I could not refuse this offer. I was really pleased to see that this brand had taken reviewers feedback on board and gone back and improved their devices in order to create the best products possible. I have tons of respect for that, as that’s exactly what we as reviewers want to achieve in this industry. We want to encourage companies to do their best, so we can offer our readers the best in return. So, did Satisfyer ruin a good thing by upgrading the Pro 2 or did they manage to make a good toy even better? Keep reading to find out!

The packaging is pretty standard for the Satisfyer range, just a white cardboard box with a glossy product shot on the front and back and basic product information on the sides. Inside this, there’s some plastic casing that stores the device and charging cable. A user manual is tucked away underneath. As I’ve mentioned in my previous Satisfyer (and Partner) reviews, this company does not include storage bags so be sure to get something suitable on hand if purchasing one of their products.

Upon setting sights on the Pro 2 Next Generation for the first time, I noticed a couple of obvious aesthetic changes. The first, and most noticeable difference, was the colour. My original Pro 2 is a bright rose gold shade whereas this new version is more of a light bronze. The second thing I noted was the change in texture. The original has a glossy finish which makes it difficult to hold at times, especially if lubricant is in the picture, but the new version has a matte texture that removes this potential problem. The third change I picked up on was a subtle thing that’s been added; the Satisfyer logo embossed onto the front of the shaft. I like this as it looks like more of a finished product now.

It is still made from a combination of abs plastic and high-grade silicone. The body is all plastic but the head and buttons are premium silicone. The head feels a little softer and smoother than the previous models did, but I would still recommend using lubricant for comfort. As the head is made from silicone, the type of lubricant needed is water based as other types may cause damage to the material. It has the same visible seams as the original, which isn’t majorly attractive but once the toy is in use I honestly couldn’t care less what it looks like. It’s also still completely waterproof, making it a breeze to clean. I remove the head and clean with a 10% bleach solution but the rest of the toy is just rinsed with warm soapy water. It’s then left to dry naturally for as long as needed.

Magnetic charging systems usually frustrate me to no end, but Satisfyer have nailed a sturdy, secure system that doesn’t disconnect easily. I swear We-Vibe’s disconnect just by looking at them, so maybe they need to switch to these cables instead. The manual states that the initial charge could take up to eight hours but I found mine ready to go after half that time. It now takes only 150 minutes, which is not bad at all, and this gives ninety minutes of use. An improvement on the original which offers only a third of that.

There are now three buttons on the control panel. Hallelujah! I am beyond happy about this as the two button interface was one of my only criticisms regarding the original. Use is so much easier now and I love the fact I can go back an intensity if I should need to without having to cycle through all the settings again. There’s a round button which is the power hub, press once to turn on and hold for a few seconds to turn off. The longer oval button is the intensity changer and you just press the + and – buttons in accordance with your preferences.

As I’ve had some experience with these pressure wave stimulators now, I know exactly where I need to place the head in order to get the most accurate, direct and comfortable sensations. So, that’s what I did. I lay back, lubed up and turned the toy on. I felt an immediate difference between the low settings on this model and the low settings on the original. Both are very subtle, tickle-like sensations but the new version feels more refined and precise. I don’t know whether this is due to the new nozzle shape, which is longer and wider than the original or whether the motor has been tweaked slightly, but it feels noticeably better to me.

It feels more refined throughout the entire range of intensities actually and I’d say these sensations offer more depth to them than I could have received with the original. They penetrate below the surface with all their might and reach a whole bunch of sensitive nerve endings that can’t be hit with any other sort of sex toy. I haven’t used my original model much since this one arrived as I feel this one is more polished and finished, giving better results. I still love the Pro 2, but the Next Generation model feels a bit stronger and as a suction slut/power queen, that’s exactly what I’m looking for.

This type of stimulation can take some getting used to, so I’d recommend trying one of the entry models first to see whether it works for you or not, but this is the one to go for if you want the best of the current Satisfyer models and know pinpoint stimulation is right for you. It offers very direct clitoral contact and as it is designed to stay in place from start to finish, this is not a toy that will work for those who need broad stimulation or are very sensitive clitorally. I love precise contact, so this is a joy for me to use, especially on intensities seven and above. I can orgasm in less than three minutes 99% of the times I use this. I love a toy that is reliable and consistent, so I’m struggling to fault this at the moment.

Outside of the suction/vibration thing the Pro 2 Next Generation has going on, it also offers a cooling breeze to the clitoris. Have you ever tried an orgasm gel or balm that’s designed to increase sensitivity and heighten sensations? Well, it feels like that and makes my clitoris tingle a little. This is part of the reason I believe my orgasms are achieved easily with this toy as I become so heightened by the combination of everything that’s going on that my body just can’t hold the pleasure waves in any longer.

So, how do I rate this in comparison to the original? I would personally say that it is better and the improvements were all welcomed. It looks better aesthetically, is easier to hold/use due to the matte texture and new control panel and the new nozzle makes the stimulation feel more refined. It’s marketed as being quieter too and I’d have to agree with Satisfyer on that. It is quieter. It’s never going to be a silent toy as the mechanisms that go into the motor make some noise when in action, but some of the noise levels decrease upon skin to nozzle contact and a closed-door drowns out the rest. The only thing that I’d love to see from them now is the inclusion of a storage pouch with each device. I’m not sure they could do anything else to make me fall deeper in love with the Pro 2.
