Review of the Cal Exotics Playful Curve

I received the 9-Function Playful Curve for review by Cal Exotics, and once again, I have really eIMG_1186njoyed their new toy. It is a waterproof toy that has 9 vibrations settings, from constant vibrations to some unusual vibration patterns (also hard to describe).

It is a slender plastic vibrator that has very pleasant vibrations patterns. The widest point, at the rounded part of the shaft, is 1 ¼” wide, and makes this toy suitable for pretty much everyone with that size. The only part to take in consideration is the sheer power of this toy. It is quite seriously powerful, especially since it is only uses 2 AAA batteries (not included), and if you tend to associate the number and size of batteries to estimate the power of a toy, you will be surprised with this one.

The plastic used for this vibrator is ABS plastic with a PU coating, and the cap is made of ABS only. If you want more information about this material and how to care for it, you can click here . The fact that it is made of plastic make the vibrations travel very well through the tip of the toy, and it is every difficult to guess exactly where the motor is location, but I guess it is in the rounded part due to size.

The tip is also curved to reach the g-spot I suppose, but it didn’t seem to work for me. I tried poking a little here and there, but with the high vibrations, it was hard to pinpoint anything. Instead, I found that I preferred using this toy externally, with the tip at the entrance of myIMG_1188 vagina while the rounded shaft would be resting against my clit. This position was quite stimulating, and made the button clicking easy.

When it comes to performance, it does the job very well, and it even felt too strong at times. All the vibrations beyond the second settings felt at least high, if it can give you an idea of how strong this is.

The vibration settings are:
1. Medium constant vibration.
2. High constant vibration.
3. Very high constant vibration.
4. Quick succession of 4 pulses.
5. Two one-second long pulses, then a long two-second pulse.
6. Series of varying pulses and a longer pulse at the end.
7. Two-second pulses
8. Quick throbbing pulses and a longer one at the end.
9. Stuttering and slightly escalating pulses.

However, with power comes noise, which is not always something we like, but unless a completely silent toy is invented, we have to deal with this. The noise is loud, much louder than the vibrations of a cellphone, and can easily be heard through a closed door even with some relaxing background music.

The vibrator is also waterproof, and I washed it under running water, and I didn’t see any water get in, so it would definitely be safe in a shower. It is not very difficult to give the cap a slight twist to get it open, and as such, I would not be too comfortable with playing too much in water, IMG_1187 as I’d worry more about the cap opening than having some water leak into it.

I think the only drawback this toy has is that it does not have an instant off button, and that you have to cycle though the patterns to turn it off. Also if you go too fast in clicking on the button, you may skip the “Off” setting and go through a completely new cycle before being able to turn it off.

So all in all, the Playful Curve is more than just playful, it’s a real player. So if you are not ready for very strong vibrations, you might need to wait before getting this one. Otherwise, it has some very good vibration patterns that are hard to come by.
