When the lovely folks at Good Vibrations offered me a chance to review this new product line of vibrators, I had to say yes. First of all, I was charmed by the delicate flower-like look of the Princessa. The Princessa is one of three new vibrators made by Vibratex. It’s a small toy, only 3 1/4″ high, splash proof, shower safe and phthalate free. It comes with a charger and cradle, USB cord and wall adapter.
Admittedly, this isn’t going to be my go-to toy; I have a nice varied collection of toys to suit my mood on any given day. Some of my favorites are featured on the Essentials for a Sexy Life page. This one is a lovely compact plaything. The Princessa has 3 levels of vibration strength and three varieties of vibration—so you can switch it up from a constant motion to one that pulses. When turned on the little ‘stamens’ vibrate as does the center nub. It gives you two distinct sensations and some options as to what spots you focus on.
It’s a perfect time to talk about vibrators; it is National Masturbation Month after all. I think every woman should own at least one vibrator. And, I’ve been thinking about sex toys from the unique angle of being a grandmother <Gasp>. When do young women begin to use sex toys? We know children experiment with pleasurable touch and we know that at some point in their pre-teen or teen years girls feel distinct sexual desire and will begin to pleasure themselves. Don’t we, as mothers and grandmothers, want them to learn about their own body before they begin exploring with partners? What if learning to satisfy their sexual urges at an earlier age helped them to delay their first sexual experience with a partner? The conversation about a grandparent’s role in teaching about sex and gifting sex toys is a whole ‘nother topic!
I say all of this because I think the Princessa, and her friends Bestie and Amie, are perfect toys for beginners, of any age. If you’re sheepish about buying a sex toy this is a good place to begin. They are well made and offer a pleasurable experience that you can customize to suit your own preferences-slow and light or fast with a varied tempo. The Bestie, with its rabbit ears is perfect for clitoral play and would probably slide between labia for a delightful sensation. And, of course you can find new ways to delight, all on your own.
Go take a look at the Princessa and see what you think. While you’re at it, browse around at Good Vibrations for other toys. The links are affiliates (meaning I get a very small amount of money when you buy through my link). I didn’t get paid to write this review, though as noted I got the toy for free. I love to write about sex toys almost as much as I enjoy trying them out! This is about us tapping into our own sexual desires, learning our pleasure zones and having fun with ourselves. Self-pleasuring is just good sense. It’s the indoor, private version of taking a walk or going to the gym. Your sexual health is just as important as your mental, physical and emotional health.
Aren’t you worth it?
