The Eroscillator is kind of like a ninja. It’s quiet, it’s discreet, it gets the job done but it takes its time doing so, and it can surprise you when it finally strikes. I’ve never really liked ninjas. I’m much more of a pirate person. You know the kind—powerful, bawdy, in-your-face, and ready to dive into the situation head first. So, naturally, the Eroscillator has thrown me a bit and left me with mixed emotions.
On the one hand the Eroscillator is the only device endorsed by Dr. Ruth Westheimer (as well as many, many other reviewers) and when it did give me orgasms they were strong. On the other hand this is a device that I have to work at for a long, long time to earn an orgasm and I was often left wondering if it was really worth the wait.
So let’s look at the Eroscillator in a bit more depth.
The Eroscillator is a unique sex device that looks more like an electric toothbrush with funky attachments, but that’s kind of the point. The Eroscillator is designed to look less like a sex toy and more like a professional pleasure item. It’s for anyone who finds themselves off-put by the idea of a phallic shaped vibrator but still wants to try and crank their orgasms up to the next level (or to start having them for the first time).
In this way the Eroscillator’s appearance really works for it. It may not look like something you’d immediately associate with sex but it’s a professional and it knows just what it’s doing.
The packaging for the Eroscillator is also very nice and underplayed. There’s a flower on the front (for all you Gerogia O’Keefe fans) and everything is neatly packed on the inside.
Included in the Eroscillator 2 Top Deluxe Set (with Soft Finger combo) is the Eroscillator, its adaptor, six attachments (including the soft finger), a booklet, and a DVD promoting the wonders of this device. The set also comes with a plastic storage bag. Sadly I found my Eroscillator didn’t fit very well in the bag, but it is good for keeping the power chord in.
The power chord is a real bonus for this toy. The chord is roughly 12” long, so most people will have more than enough chord to allow them to move freely during use.
But that’s not the main selling point of this device.
The Eroscillator’s most important element, as opposed to vibrators, is that it oscillates—oscillating up to 60x per second to give an incredibly unique sensation. You see, most sex toys vibrate—which provides an up-and-down motion—but oscillations act very differently. Oscillations move from side-to-side as opposed to up-and-down which, while it doesn’t sound like much, can make all the difference.
The Eroscillator has three speed settings and the handle lets you know which setting you’re on, which is incredibly handy.
Paying no mind to my lukewarm reception of the Eroscillator, I have to admit that the sensations produced by the Eroscillator are unlike any device I’ve used before, and they’re very, very deep. Even when placing the Eroscillator gently on my clitoral hood I can feel its oscillations resonating deep into my vulva, and even my perineum at times. This is very pleasant and the depth of the oscillations did surprise me a bit. Because of this if you hunger for depth in your sexual gadgets then the Eroscillator may just be the thing for you.
The attachments provided with this set all have different pros and cons and are easy to insert onto the Eroscillator and stay firmly in place after insertion. Inserting them in the dark can be a bit fiddly though, so keep a light source handy if you want to experiment with them in one play session.
Each of the attachments have their own pros and cons, and the booklet provided with the Eroscillator runs through these, so I won’t bore you with the details (or ruin your chance to experiment) but I will let you know my top three:
Grapes and Cockscomb Heads- Okay, technically this is two attachments in one but they’re both good. I surprised myself with how much I liked the texture of the grapes on my clitoris (which can be overwhelming for some) and I really enjoyed being able to switch this attachment around and focus on my labia every now and then. This attachment is an all-around vulva pleaser and I can’t turn my nose up at that.
The French Legionnaire’s Moustache- I was convinced I’d hate this attachment. I mean it has literal bristles. However these bristles are incredibly soft and caress the vulva nicely while the firm centre focuses on the clitoris. Alternatively you can flip this attachment on its side and let the bristles directly caress your clitoris. I don’t care if The French Legionnaire’s Moustache flicks lube at me, it’s a winner in my books.
The Ultra Soft Finger Tip- This attachment wasn’t as squidgy as I expected but it’s still a delightfully plush little thing that feels lovely when applied to the clitoris, nipples, or other areas. The power of the Eroscillator dulls a little bit through this attachment, though, but the texture of this attachment makes it a worthy trade-off.
And that’s that.
I found The Seven Pearls of the Orient to be the most disappointing—being too small for meaningful internal pleasure and too pin-point for my liking clitoris-wise—but this is all personal preference. No doubt others will be able to find their own preference with the Eroscillator.
I’ve had sessions where I’ve used the Eroscillator in a manner of ways (including with a reliable internal sex toy to try and help assist it) and I’ve still been without an orgasm an hour down the line. When I know there are so many other products that are quicker and produce strong orgasms this means that it’s just not typically worth the time and effort to use the Eroscillator instead. During couples play my partner would usually sigh as soon as he saw me pull out the Eroscillator, because he knew what it meant, and it actually came to be a turn off for both of us.
How could this happen? This is supposed to be a device that can bring pleasure even to anorgasmic people and it was actually killing the mood for me and Mr. Peaches.
For me I think most of this comes from the power of the oscillations.
The Eroscillator is, by no means, a weak toy, but nowadays I do prefer incredibly strong vibrations (it’s fair to say I’m a power queen) and the Eroscillator just didn’t reliably deliver because of this. However, my situation is certainly not the norm and many other reviewers have found the Eroscillator to be a fantastic device. For a broader opinion check out some other reviews here, here, and here.
Getting a wide range of opinions will help you decide if the Eroscillator is for you, and will give you more to consider.
Some more common downsides of the Eroscillator are mostly nit-picks to my mind. It can seem unattractive to some, cleaning it well can be a bit difficult, and having a chorded toy isn’t for everyone. The biggest objective downside of the Eroscillator is that the material used for the attachments might be porous, so you’re best off keeping them to yourself or between you and fluid-bonded partners.
Overall the Eroscillator is a well-renowned pleasure device with a wide array of endorsements. It may not have worked for me but that doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. That being said, if you crave strong vibrations just as much as I do, or don’t respond well to unfamiliar sensations, then the Eroscillator might take some getting used to. Because I’m not ready to give up on the Eroscillator just yet I plan to do a follow-up review in the future. But, for now, while I know of the wonders of this toy from others I have sadly yet to experience them myself.
