Review: Vibratex Princessa

pennysblog_princessaThe Princessa looks like a cross between a flower, a nipple, a bug, and an alien, which is of course why I wanted to try it.

One of Vibratex’s new line of petite, rechargable travel vibes (along with the more traditionally shaped Amie and Bestie,) the Princessa is made of silicone and ABS plastic. It’s smaller than I thought it would be (3.3″ long and about 1.5″ wide), and its vibration is concentrated in the “nipple” part, which is firm but has some give to it. The petals/ticklers/feelers/whatever-you-want-to-call-them are very flexible and only transfer a small amount of vibration. The power is controlled with a flower shaped push button and has a cycle through design (low, medium, high, pulse, increasing pulse, helicopter (more on that later), and off.)

The Princessa is one of those toys that I wouldn’t have bought or requested to review if I had felt it first. Its vibrations are very surface level and buzzy (I think it’s actually the buzziest vibe I have), and I was doubtful that it would be able to get me off after feeling it. It also has almost no range; the 2nd speed is slightly stronger than the 1st, but there’s almost no discernible difference between the 2nd and 3rd.

The Princessa is also kind of like a small dog that’s overcompensating by barking non-stop–it’s obnoxiously loud for such a petite, weak vibe. When it’s set to steady vibration, it sounds like there are bees buzzing around my clit, and on its last setting, like a helicopter is about to land between my labia. So there’s that.

Something about the pinpoint stimulation from the hard nipple part on my clit combined with the feelers tickling my labia works for me, though I think I get off more from rubbing action than the actual vibration. I really wish the Princessa had power akin to that of its cousin vibe, the Mystic Wand, or even better, the rumbly goodness of the Tango.

I was reminded the other day that vibration power is very relative during an impromptu show & tell of my toys with two friends, when one was impressed by the Princessa’s vibes (and scared to death of the Doxy’s.) So if you are very sensitive and prefer a light tickle vibration, the Princessa might work for you. For most people though, the Princessa’s light, buzzy vibrations won’t cut it.

The Princessa comes with a pink pleather zipper storage bag, a charger dock, a USB wall converter (which is nice because many vibes don’t), and a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty. You can charge the Princessa with or without the port, and the light turns green when it’s at full charge. It’s showerproof/splashproof but not submergible; I haven’t used it in shower but have cleaned it without any problems.

Since it’s silicone it can be washed with soap and hot water or a 10% bleach solution, and I’d recommend using an old toothbrush to get in around the bottom of the feelers. Normally I’d say the Princessa is ideal for travel since it’s small, but the noise factor might be an issue.

Although I can get off with the Princessa, its weak vibration and unwelcome soundtrack annoys me. Unless you like buzzy vibrations or absolutely must own an alien nipple flower vibe, I don’t recommend it. If you’re looking for a small travel vibe, try the Mia for more of a range or the Tango for sheer power instead.

Thanks SheVibe!

    It sounds like something cute just to have but I am sure it would do nothing for me. My Salsa is my best friend at the moment.
