If we go by the Chinese Zodiac, 2013 has been the Year of the Snake. However, if we go by my sex toy reviews, it’s more like the Year of the Rabbit. Over the past year I’ve reviewed a lot of rabbit vibrators. No complaints here! I love a good dual stimulation toy, so when a company offers to send me something new & shiny to try, I can’t resist. To prove my point, here are most of the rabbit vibrators that I own. At least half of them were reviewed in 2013. Crazy right?! It’s been um, a busy year.
The year is almost over, but one more rabbit managed to arrive just in time to still be reviewed in 2013. The nice people over at California Exotics surprised me with this purple beauty (thank you!!). Guys, I’d like you to meet Isabella from Cal Exotics’s Entice line. Isn’t she pretty?
Isabella is a stylish dual stimulation vibrator made of silky soft, body-safe silicone and elegant metallic plating at her base. She has dual motors designed to stimulate both the g-spot and the clitoris. Isabella is about 8″ long, with 5.25″ of insertable length, making it a really decent sized toy (not too big, not too small). It has 8 different vibration, pulsation and escalation modes and some of the easiest to use controls I’ve ever seen on a vibrator – there’s one button for on/off and another to change the vibration settings. Isabella is powered by 2 AA batteries that are easily inserted in her base. Oh, and she’s waterproof! (hello, bath time fun!)
Isabella actually reminds me a lot of another vibrator I reviewed – the Picobong Kaya. They’re both medium sized battery operated rabbit vibrators that are very elegantly designed. I don’t usually review a lot of battery operated toys because I prefer rechargeable toys, however the I was really impressed by the overall quality of Isabella. The silicone is seriously so freaking soft – it’s amazing. Isabella definitely has a very luxurious feel. The shaft of this toy is a really decent size and feels really great when inserted. Unlike my last review, there is absolutely no discomfort or irritation with this toy. Yay! Also, it goes without saying that the vibrations definitely lead to some toe curling orgasms.
By the way, yesterday when I asked Joe the Intern if he’d help me with the photographs for this post he told me he wanted to sit this one out (“Simone, I’ve been walking around the mall all afternoon Christmas shopping. I really need some me time.“) However, five minutes later, he was on my desk asking me why I wasn’t taking photos of him. Sigh, interns! So, I’ve included this photo so you can get an idea of the scale of the toy.
Although I love almost everything about Isabella, I felt that the toy could have used just one or two more levels of intense vibration to really make it the perfect toy for me. Intensity wise, I still think I prefer the Body and Soul Lover (I can’t. quit. you.) With that said, although this toy may not satisfy advanced toy users, this is a great option for beginners. The vibrations are definitely enough to get you off and the quality of the toy is amazing. The price point is also super reasonable. At approximately $50, this is the perfect toy for someone who is looking to experiment with their first rabbit vibe and wants something that feels like a luxury toy without a high-end price tag. It also makes for a very nice stocking stuffer 😉
If that sounds like you, you can find the Entice Isabella at one of my favourite retailers, Sex Toys Canada for $47.95. Don’t live in Canada? You can also find California Exotics Entice Isabella on Amazon for $33.94.
Once again, I just wanted to thank California Exotics for sending me this lovely toy for review. I received this toy free of charge as part of the Cal Exotics Sexpert program in exchange for my honest review. As always, all opinions are my own because that’s how I roll.
