Toy Review: The Caress Rotating Clitoral Vibrator with Attachments by Adrian Lastic

Innovation is a tricky game.

In theory, anything that is drastically different can be an innovation or have an innovative twist applied to it. But it’s what you do with that innovation and not the innovation itself. For this reason many toys have legitimately been able to claim innovation, and many toys can be called innovative or different, but that doesn’t mean they’re of a higher quality because of it…nor any good at all.

The original Womanizer, for example, was a game changer (and Satisfyer have made further innovations since). Something like the Jimmyjane Form 5 or the Lelo Ida, on the other hand?…Not so much.

That being said, even generally disliked innovations can find their audience. I, for example, liked the Ida, even if most did not, so there is a sense of subjectivity there.

Why do I mention all this?

Because the Caress Rotating Clitoral Vibrator with Attachments by Adrian Lastic is not, to my mind, an innovation that is going to be generally effective, nor is it one that the industry really needed, but it does still have a niche ad might even find an adoring fan base.

Let’s get in to the review.

The Caress Rotating Clitoral Vibrator with Attachments by Adrian Lastic

The Caress Rotating Clitoral Vibrator with Attachments by Adrian Lastic is a little bud of a toy which fits comfortably in the palm of one’s hand and has a clear focus on clitoral and nipple stimulation.

It’s innovation is a rotating head which comes with a variety of different silicone attachments. These attachments include some common designs – including bunny ears, nodules, and a propeller design – which can be interchanged easily to create different type of stimulation.

Look at this adorable little thing.

In addition to this, the Adrian Lastic Caress has added vibration to their toy, so that you get two forms of stimulation: a swivel and vibrations. Not necessarily a bad idea.

The swivel of the Adrian Lastic Caress goes both ways, too – allowing for rotation in a single default direction or back-and-fourth rhythms that occur at different tempos to create different patterns. This is exactly what Adrien Lastic have done, to give the Adrian Lastic Caress a total of 10 rotation modes.

If nothing else, the Adrian Lastic Caress is an incredibly cute toy. Measuring in at no more that 9cm at any given moment in height, and with a width of 5.5cm this is, to use the official term, a ‘diddy vibe’.

When I saw this toy and it’s attachments I found it so sweet that I got excited just from its aesthetics.

This compact shape and size helps make the Adrian Lastic Caress a toy that could be good for travel and is definitely good for discrete storage. Speaking of storage, it even comes with its own storage bag to help you keep track of it and its 5 different silicone heads.

These heads are incredibly easy to put on to the Adrian Lastic Caress and to remove. Being made from silicone, they are non-porous, phthalate-free, and completely body-safe, and the whole toy is made to be similarly safe and non porous. The base of this toy is, naturally firmer, whereas the heads have the flexibility and softness needed to allow them to sweep over the clitoris (or nipples) without feeling like someone is taking a baking whisk to your genitals.

There are options with the Caress, but are they any good?

The Adrian Lastic Caress is completely waterproof too – charging with a magnetic base and a USB system – meaning that the entire thing is relatively easy to clean and dry. Just be aware of the nodule attachments, which do tend to require extra attention.

The Adrian Lastic Caress only comes in one colour, which is a deep rose-like pink. Some people will rightly point out that this is cliche, but I do feel like it fits with the overall design of the Caress which, as I said before, reminds me of a flower bud or something similar…that is until your get to its attachments, then the aesthetic is a mixture between ‘clear sex toy’ and ‘this might be a sex toy, but it could also be a tiny boat propeller’. It all depends on how you take it.

In addition to being USB rechargeable, waterproof, and having a storage bag, the Adrian Lastic Caress also has the typical ‘luxury toy’ perk of a 2 year warranty, which is somewhat expected nowadays but is useful regardless.

It is controlled by a single button, which is both a good and bad thing. On the one hand you don’t have to worry about fiddling around too much with the controls during use (which is especially important with a tiny toy that has limited ‘handle’ space). On the other if you mess up and go past your setting you either have to filter through the settings or turn the toy on and off again. Not the ideal.

I thought I would love this tiny tinker, but our relationship soured swiftly.

This was more of an irritation for me while using the Adrian Lastic Caress because this toy’s button has to be pressed and held to turn it on then pressed again to start cycling through the toy’s settings (and then pressed and held, pressed and held and re-pressed if you make a mistake). This makes the Adrian Lastic Caress great for travel, again – because it’s rarely going to accidentally turn on and, even if it does, it won’t instantly start whirring – but it’s a pain for anything else.

Perhaps I’m being overly critical here but Adrien Lastic describe this toy’s controls as ‘intuitive’, so I guess I’m just doubly riled up because of this. Anyways, on with the review.

The whirring swivel of the Adrian Lastic Caress is effective, in that this toy will swirl in its chosen direction or pattern with quite a bit of gusto. The vibrations from this toy are buzzy, mid-level and standard, but god damn do they ever work well in complementing the swirl of this toy. They’re not the main player at all but, as a supplement, you could have picked no better vibration type.

The combination leaves the Adrian Lastic Caress feeling very intense when hovered gently over the clitoris, without feeling stingy, abrasive, or anything similar. The result is a very direct clitoral toy which feels less like oral than I expected and more like some of the sharp and strong pinpoint toy’s I’ve experienced (and typically avoid) in the past.

The problem being that these are the sensations that you get specifically when laying or sitting legs spread, labia completely parted, and toy hovering lightly over the clit. Any other position and you’re pretty much screwed (or not, as it were).

This made the Adrian Lastic Caress a frustrating tester for me.

I like to move my toys closer to my body, nuzzle them cosily in between my labia majora and them sort of smush my labia onto the toy’s surface, or otherwise just snuggle up with my toys (my vulva is clingy, it seems). But when I tried doing this with the Adrian Lastic Caress, no matter which head I used, I either got A) No, minimal, or intermittent sensation, and the motors dulled due to pressure or B) Grabby, pinchy experiences, no matter how much lubricant I added. Sometimes I even got a combination of the two as well. Lucky me.

Because of this I did not once reach climax with the Adrian Lastic Caress, and I feel it would be very poorly suited for anyone with larger labia, a preference for pressure during sex, or with those who use no lubricant or like to dual-wield (this toy is either a two-handed or two-person job). But that potential is still there.

If you are the type of person who likes spreading themselves, who wants a partner toy, who enjoys intense pinpoint sensations, or who wants to play around with BDSM and the idea of someone else using this toy on you then there is a glimmer of hope for the Adrian Lastic Caress and your pre-existing proclivities.

Under any other circumstances though? It’s unlikely you’ll love this toy.

Squeel users might also find joy in this product too, but I don’t feel too confident with making that assertion, as I actively avoided the Squeel from the get go (it seemed like a big waste of lubricant to me). That being said, this toy is the closest I’ve ever felt to using a Squeel, only with added vibrations, so take that as you will.

Final Thoughts

My tentative recommendations above come with one big whopping proviso, and that’s the fact that this toy retails at $99, which is a lot for a product that offers dubious results in very specific circumstances.

Because of this, I can’t in good conscience, recommend the Adrian Lastic Caress, especially seeing as my strongest feelings about it were ‘Yeah, I could see how this might feel nice for some people’ rather than the purring moan I then experienced after each use, when I transitioned to the Inu for my clitoral fix instead.

Some innovations are winners, others are flops. The Adrian Lastic Caress is kind of just lukewarm potential and that, I’m afraid, isn’t good enough.

Recommend to:

People who like the Squeel toys.

People who like direct clitoral stimulation.

People who want a rotating & vibrating toy combo.

Do Not Recommend to:

People who dislike pinpoint sensation.

People who like vibration variety.

People who like pressure during toy use.
