Before we get into this review, we need to appreciate the anal experts that made this product. B-Vibe do absolutely fantastic work promoting safe and enjoyable anal play. Their products, guides and website are all gender neutral, sexuality neutral and welcoming to every body. They have tons of useful information on their site regarding backdoor fun and I would definitely recommend checking them out if you’re new, curious or unsure about anal stimulation. They have sex toys that are suited to different needs and levels of experience and the one I’m talking about today is the Trio. A vibrating butt plug that houses THREE different motors. I know my fellow power queens interest will be piqued by that and I’m happy to report back to them that I was not disappointed at all. It went above my expectations, proving that the Rimming Butt Plug 2 was not just a wonderful one-off but the first in a long line of greats.
The presentation was perfect. It had an outer cardboard sleeve with glossy product shot on the front, a description on one side, a list of key features on the back alongside some images of couples (bonus points for these pictures including multiple sexualities/ethnicities) and a diagram showcasing where each motor is located inside the plug. Under the sleeve there was a purple storage box with a magnetic side opening that opened to reveal a shiny metallic black case. The case held the plug, remote control, charging cable and a guide to anal play. The user manual was hidden underneath this case.
B-Vibe’s Trio Vibrating Butt Plug is made from luxurious silicone. It is high-quality, top-grade stuff that I can’t fault at all. It’s completely body-safe which means that it’s free from latex and phthalates, has no odour or nasty toxins and is hypoallergenic. It has a gorgeously soft, silky finish that has minimal drag to its surface and attracts less lint than silicone typically hoards. It requires a full coating of water-based anal lubricant for use as the anus does not self-lubricate. You may need to top up on the lube occasionally if you’re planning on wearing the plug for long periods of time or find it starts getting uncomfortable.
After use, the plug should be thoroughly cleaned with warm soapy water and rinsed off. It is splashproof, not fully waterproof, so don’t fully submerge it or use it in the bath/shower. I avoid wetting the base where possible and use antibacterial toy wipes on this area instead. When rinsed, dry with a lint free cloth or leave to dry naturally. It should be not used or charged until it’s completely dry and it should also not be cleaned with sprays that contain alcohol or acetone.
Rechargeable via a sturdy magnetic system, charging couldn’t be simpler. Just attach the magnetic clip to the points on the base and plug the USB into a suitable port. There should be a flashing light to indicate that the charging process has begun which goes solid once complete. In our experience, the plug takes around an hour and a half to charge and gives approximately the same amount of use time but it depends on the settings that have been used. The accompanying remote control is actually battery operated and comes with one pre-installed CR2032 to get you started. You can access the battery by sliding the back off the remote. Make sure to remove the paper disc inside this compartment before use so that it will actually work.
You then have two control options. Manual control or use of the remote. My partner and I tried out both methods and found that it was easier to use the remote. I do like the option of having multiple methods but it can be difficult to change the setting manually whilst the plug is being worn. I only use the base controls if I don’t plan on changing the function I’m using and I don’t need to alter the intensity of the vibrations. All that’s needed for manual operation is a quick tap of the power button. This cycles through the nine modes and also turns everything off when pressed and held for a few seconds.
Controlling via the remote allows more range over the toys possibilities. To activate, turn the plug into standby mode by pressing the power button until it flashes. Then press the central button on the remote and check that the power button has gone solid to confirm the pairing. To change the vibration modes on the remote press the wave button. You can cycle through the nine options or pause all of the vibrations via this button. Press and hold for three seconds to do this. You can then press again once quickly to restart the vibrations
The remote also allows you to change the intensity of each mode. You press the plus to increase and minus to decrease. There are a total of eight levels to choose from. To turn the toy and remote off, press and hold the power button on the plug for a few seconds and tap the power button on the remote once. To lock, press and hold the plus and minus buttons down together for three seconds or the power button on the plug for five seconds. You can reactivate by either method.
So, I mentioned three motors earlier but I didn’t describe the positioning of each one. There is one in the tip, one in the middle and one in the neck. I like the vibrations in the tip best but I also find the stimulation of the vibration in the neck to provide some external sensations that speed up my orgasms immensely. The vibrations are rumbly with some depth to them on the low to medium intensities but begin to get buzzier on the higher settings. Luckily, my butt doesn’t hate buzziness so this wasn’t a problem. Out of the nine vibration modes that are available, most of them use both of these motors which means I can make use out of nearly all of them. Here’s a list of what each function offers:
Constant vibration in the tip,
Constant vibration in the neck,
Constant vibration in the tip and neck,
Constant vibration from all three motors,
Pulsing pattern from all three motors,
Oscillating pattern from all three motors,
Fast paced pulsation pattern from all three motors,
Quick up and down pulsation pattern from all three motors,
Random pattern from all three motors.
I mostly stick to the first four modes as I prefer constant speeds but I don’t hate the patterns on this. I usually use the first and second modes to warm up with and then choose between the other two depending how sensitive I’m feeling. If I want maximum intensity then I’ll use the fourth setting to overwhelm my senses and let the toy force an orgasm from me rather than building to one myself. It’s tons of fun to play with during masturbation sessions alongside a clitoral vibrator like the Tango for maximum stimulation and aggressive orgasms but it’s also glorious during penetrative sex with my partner. It provides the well-known tighter vaginal canal feeling during intercourse and doesn’t get in the way of any of our regular rotation of positions. My partner can even control it from the base in the pronebone position which keeps things interesting.
At just over five inches in overall length with 4.3 of them being insertable, this plug falls into the medium category. It has 3.9 inches of girth at its widest point which makes it suitable for those transitioning from beginner plugs to intermediate options. It’s noticeably slimmer than the Rimming Plug 2 so can be used as a warm-up tool or stepping stone to that.
I thought the size was extremely comfortable and the rounded, but tapered, tip didn’t cause a jabbing sensation like some of the other plugs I’ve tried with this shape. It works well with my body and doesn’t cause much of a stretching sensation during wear, making it perfect for those who don’t have tons of anal experience. I can happily wear the Trio for a few hours without having any problems. I enjoy leaving the remote in the hands of my eager partner, allowing the anticipation of not knowing when he’s going to turn it on to build to the suspense of the session. We had tons of fun with this as a couple and I think it’s definitely got potential to be used for public play providing there’s some background noise available. It works from about 30 meters away so a partner can control it from the next room or across the bar without having connection problems.
Overall, I think I have fallen head over heels for the Trio. I love that it can be used with or without the remote control as this gives various options for use and keeps things interesting. It might be difficult to control from the base but I like that the option is there if I want to use it. I have enjoyed it using it on its own, with other sex toys and with a partner so it’s practically perfect for every sexual situation. It has not disappointed me in the power department and I would not hesitate to recommend it to my fellow power lovers. Often multiple motors make a sex toy loud and obnoxious but B-Vibe have managed to make a manage-a-trois that’s quiet enough to use in public. I salute them.
