With the success of Digital Playground’s Pirates and Pirates 2: Stagnetti’s Revenge, it’s hardly surprising the line of sex toys being released under the franchise. I was eager to review some of these and to my delight I answered the door one afternoon to a big package straight from Digital Playground containing an assortment of Pirates sex toys. Today I’m going to be reviewingSasha Grey’s Hidden Pleasure Vibe.
The Hidden Pleasure Vibe is a small rocket vibrator which is designed to be powerful, discreet and easy to use. It’s ideal for clitoral stimulation and is a really good toy for beginners.
It’s made of smooth hard plastic which is phthalate free, non-porous and really easy to clean. This is a really good looking sex toy, the shaft has a pearl effect finish with floral and skull ‘n’ crossbones pattern in it and the base is silver with ridges around the outside.
The entire vibrator is 5″ long, with 3.75″ of that being insertable. This isn’t that big, but as it’s designed primarily to be a discreet clitoral vibrator I feel it’s acceptable.
Unscrewing the base reveals the battery compartment for 1 x AA battery. At the base is a small push button with a number ‘3′ printed on it. I was curious at first what this was, and after looking at the other sex toys from the Pirates range it appears this indicates the different settings, in this case the levels of power available. The different levels of vibrations are selected by pushing the button to cycle through them – mild, medium, strong and off. I thought that only having 1 battery to power it would mean this vibrator would be weak, but it’s surprisingly strong, especially on the highest setting. But with this power comes quite a lot of noise. It’s still audible from under bedsheets, but fortunately not from outside of the room.
The packaging suggests that this vibrator is waterproof, I’ve got it wet whilst cleaning, however it looks like it probably wouldn’t survive being completely submerged in water for any length of time. This may just be me being overly cautious and afraid of maybe breaking it though!
How to clean
As I said earlier, this toy is very easy to clean. Warm water and soap is all that’s needed although, as previously mentioned, I wouldn’t submerge it completely.
How to store it
As for storage, it’s all taken care of. Sasha Grey’s Hidden Pleasure Vibe comes with it’s own treasure chest. A plastic box lined with a silky material to keep your toy safe and clean.
The packaging is clear plastic and recyclable (always a plus!). It has an ocean pattern in the background with the vibrator and treasure chest in front on display. The front of the packaging is clearly branded to the Pirates movie, with ‘PIRATES’ printed in big letters across the top and a photo of Sasha Grey in character as Maria to the side. On the back of the packaging is a short description of the toy and it’s features along with pictures of a few other toys in the Pirates range. Beneath that is a series of icons informing you that the vibrator is multi-speed, waterproof and phthalate free and that the packaging is recyclable.
If you’re in the market for a clitoral vibrator then Sasha Grey’s Hidden Pleasure Vibe is definitely one to check out. It’s a beautiful looking toy that’s sure to impress. The vibrations are powerful, even on the lowest setting, and it’s really simple to use. It’s not the quietest of vibrators I’ve ever used, but it’s definitely one of the most effective and it’s sure to keep you entertained!
See how it compares to the best vibrator.
