Dangerous Lilly Reviews The Revel Body Sonic Vibrator

Crowd-funding for sex toys never ceases to amaze me. The Revel Body is one such item, but unlike a few other sex toys, at least the Revel Body is being made with very different technology. And for those with finicky clits which demand specific types of powerful vibrations–those who are disappointed with nearly every Lelo vibrator, or most other luxury vibrators–our hopes go up when we hear about something new. How is it new, exactly? Well, I’m not really sure beyond knowing that it involves “sonic” vibrations and magnets1. I’m a geek, sure, but lately I don’t want to put this much effort into knowing how my vibrator works. I just want one that works. If you want to know more, you’ll browse their site. I’m not here to tell you HOW it works, just how it worked for ME.  If I were to explain every aspect of this thing2, we’d be here all damn day. You can look at photos and read the “about” info on their site.  For a little more, I did a mini video review, too, viewable on the separate review about the extra accessories for the Revel Body.

I think it’s safe to say that I tried harder with this vibrator than any other vibrator in the past. I’m usually pretty decisive pretty fast; even when the vibrator is “meh” and only sort of gets me off. But the Revel Body thoroughly confused me because so many things about it tricked my logical brain into thinking that it should work for me. There was no way it wouldn’t. Many of you know the vibration intensity test tricks – hollow of your cheek, or tip of your nose. Even on my fingertip, certain modes of the Revel Body combined with certain tips seemed more powerful than my much-loved forever-compared We-Vibe Tango. Yet….my clitoris staunchly disagreed.

The Revel Body’s design history feels promising. They truly have worked hard, and aimed to make a revolutionary sex toy, of that much I am certain. And I’ve heard from some women that they love it, it’s amazing, etc. However, I’ve heard from just as many that it was a complete failure for them. This is, however, the case with ALL sex toys. So I kept an open mind, and that’s why I tried so hard to love it. But the basic design of it just is 100% incompatible with my body/vulva type. When I added on the accessory tips, I saw some improvement but ultimately it wasn’t enough for me. This vibrator is absolutely going to work best for women with exposed/”outtie” clits. Women like me will have issues. Women who need/like some rubbing and pressure in addition to their vibrations will not have any luck with the Revel Body, as applying pressure works against the piston motion and applying pressure to the side of certain tips will cause the vibrations to halt completely. This is not easy to achieve with just the original, flat, included tip but it can be an issue if you purchase some of those accessory tips. But wait, there's more!
