Guest Review: The Boom Olive 10 Speed Silicone G-Spot Vibrator

Hello my lovely readers!

I’m in London today spending time with my family and enjoying some much needed rest & relaxation. 

This ties in perfectly with my sites theme for this month: Honesty.

Honesty and authenticity are so intrinsically linked that they’re essentially synonyms, but honesty has its own implications. You can be honest with your word. Honest with yourself. And honest about what works with your body. And I’m going to honestly be enjoying myself today.

So while I’m away please enjoy this review, in which our lovely guest blogger Curious Clementine embraces her own honesty as she bravely strikes out and stays true to her body. Enjoy!


Being exceedingly junior in the world of sex toys has a lot of perks as well as a lot of nerves. While I relish the fact I have yet to enjoy many of the sensations I read and am told about, often sometimes even waiting in eager anticipation for the moment I can try something new for myself, a lot of the time I am merely content to just sit back and imagine owning and experiencing a particular item that has been given rave reviews by friends and professionals. Especially when they’re quite expensive.

My being a novice user and reviewer means I am often reliant on thoughts and opinions of others when it comes to toys, and while I have often found myself in agreement with my friend Emmeline Peaches with regards our experiences of certain toys (albeit limited experience in my case), there are cases where we differ.

During one of Emmeline’s personal sales, I jumped at the chance to make another special purchase to add a little something new to my tiny collection of goodies. Who wouldn’t, especially when reading such reviews as Emmeline’s seem to have that particular toy tick every single box of things you like. Which, the Boom Olive 10 Speed Silicone G-Spot Vibrator did.

Or so I thought…

The Boom Olive 10 Speed Silicone G-Spot Vibrator

This toy was quite a surprise for me. With my few glass toys and couple of g-spotting vibes I do own, I learned I quite like rigid toys with nice textures which through their relative firmness can apply good amounts of pressure in all the right places just by being there. But this… This, applied pressure. But sadly… Sadly in all the wrong places and in all the wrong ways.

This toy is beautiful, but looks aren’t everything.

The Boom Olive itself is a pretty looking thing. Smooth, soft white silicone with some plastic detailing on the sides of its handle and buttons which is designed to look like wood, rather fitting for a line of toys inspired by nature and named after trees (which appeals to me a lot as I would probably be a tree-dwelling elf if I lived in a Tolkein-esque realm).

Long-pressing the on button for a few seconds turns it on, with only another quick press to switch it off again. This way round for the controls made me wonder whether that would be an issue if I were to accidentally switch it off mid-use. But this turned out to be a blessing for me (more on that later). The second button cycles through its ten vibration settings. So with only two buttons it’s simple to use.

It comes with a USB charger for a battery that takes around 3 hours to charge and can then run for up to 110 minutes, and the whole toy itself is water resistant which even makes cleaning a lot easier. Furthermore, it’s quite a sturdy thing, being one of the firmest toys I now own, well up there with my glass pieces despite being silicone.

It is also surprisingly angular, 38mm at its widest and 158mm long and gently pointed with a slightly triangular shaft, bulging on one side to (and I can only assume here) enable plenty of coverage of the sides of the vaginal walls and focus all vibrations on the g-spot. And my word the vibrations. This toy is in no way the most subtle with noise. I may now personally occupy an entire floor of my house but it does make me nervous when the relatives are in residence. But noise aside; it does have some nice little vibrations. But all this regardless, however I may feel about its appearance and audio, this is one toy I have been unable to get along with by way of its intended purposes.

This toy comes in two colours and is very angular.

When initially trying out this toy for the first time I had a certain level of difficulty. I applied some lube, turned up my Spotify playlist and lay back in anticipation of the good vibes I was about to experience. But insertion of this toy proved my first hurdle to overcome. I struggled with its ‘angles’ when finding the right position.

Strike one.

After a few minutes, and I assume it was a few as three songs went by in the time it took to regain comfort and some resemblance of anticipation rather than disappointment, I tried again with some more lube. The tip inserted, as before, but my discomfort only grew from there. While initially I had difficulty finding the right position for it, once I found the right one, things only got worse from there. My vagina seemed to fight every millimetre of this toy’s insertion in what was sadly quite a painful manner. So I stopped trying.

Strike two.

Once I had recovered from the silicone assault on my genitals and calmed down a bit, I reached for another toy in curiosity. Perhaps I was just stressed out? Maybe my over-eagerness had caused me to tense up in some way. But soon enough I was gasping along to the music of Elton John and Tim Rice. So I guess I wasn’t as tense as I thought.

I gave myself a few days before trying it again, thinking that perhaps a fresh attempt would be all I needed with this thing. So once again, I closed my door, turned up Spotify, lubed up the Boom Olive and lay back with wishful thoughts of orgasm… Only to suffer the same fiasco all over again.

This toy can stay in its box as far as Curiously Clementine is concerned.

This time however I did manage full insertion of the toy. But after the initial pain as it slid inside had subsided, it just felt incredibly uncomfortable. And the vibrations only made this feeling of discomfort worse. Rather than buzzing me to blissful oblivion I was just left lying on my back with a white and brown twitching stick hanging out of me and highlighting every sensation but not in any kind of good way at all. So I switched it off, thanking the design team for the quick cut-off button; but even taking it out again caused me a certain level of pain.

Strike three.

And I was done.

I cleaned myself up, washed the toy, and then returned it to the back of my drawer where it has sadly remained ever since.

I wish I could say I was still a fan of the Boom Olive, because my initial hopes were indeed quite high. But sadly it just didn’t live up to them. While I can understand and appreciate its form, usage for me just did not work because my vagina disagrees completely with it. Many out there as I am sure, such as my friend Emmeline can get on quite happily with this toy and have it provide good orgasms for them, I however am not one of the lucky ones, and so recommending this toy to others is a difficulty for me as my personal experiences only provided me with pain and bitter disappointment.

Final Thoughts

My final thoughts on the Boom Olive are still mixed with feelings of surprise though. How could a toy that ticked so many boxes for me turn out to be so bad for me? This is the question I continue to ask myself. The only answer I can find for this question comes in the form of a metaphor involving a children’s toy which consists of a set of differently shaped holes and some blocks. A square hole for a square block, triangular hole for a triangle block and so on. And so this toy, like many will be I am sure, is just not the right fit for me; like trying to force a triangular block through a square hole, it’s just not going to fit.

Not everyone will have the same experience as I have had with the Boom Olive, I wouldn’t expect them to. And so all I am able to do is offer advice on what I have learned. Don’t worry if a toy doesn’t meet your expectations. We all have preferences, but they won’t all always be filled. Something which seems perfect on paper, in practice may not be at all. And most importantly, don’t let your eagerness for a toy push you to try making it meet your expectations. I learned this lesson in a painful way, and it is one experience I shall not be repeating in the future.
