Did you know that we’re in the midst of National Masturbation Month? I was not aware of this, however leave it to me to discover this half-way through the month. Luckily, this ahem, “holiday,” falls at a time when I am super behind on my product reviews. So, to try something new, get caught up and finish May off with a bang (both figuratively and literally), I thought I’d challenge myself to review as many toys as possible over the next 14 days or so. Coincidentally, I also just happen to have a bunch of really cool and innovative sex toys to share with you.
In case you missed it, earlier in the month I wrote about the Apollo Power Stroker (the first sex toy for men I have reviewed on the blog) and The Afterglow (the world’s first laser vibrator. Oh my!) Today I’d like to introduce the Revel Body Sonic – another unique and technologically innovative sex toy. Ever since I visited the Revel Body booth when I was at the AVN show in January, I’ve been completely obsessed with trying this toy. When the lovely people at Diddleworks offered to send me my very own to review, I leaped at the opportunity. By the way, if you’ve never visited the Diddleworks website, make sure to check it out. They have an amazing selection of body safe toys & products, all laid out in a gorgeous, minimalist shopping experience.
The Revel Body Sonic
is a small, spherical clitoral vibrator designed for external stimulation. It’s made of body safe silicone and is free of phthalates, nickle-plated parts and any harmful chemicals. It’s fully rechargeable via USB cord and is 100% waterproof. What makes the Revel Body Sonic different than any other vibrator on the market is that it features True Sonic technology.
Years ago, I remember an acquaintance telling me how the all-girls boarding school she attended had to ban electric toothbrushes because they were being used for rampant masturbation. I mean, it makes sense – electric toothbrushes definitely vibrate quite intensely, however until I heard that story I had never even considered using mine for anything other than cleaning my teeth. Although, I love my Sonicare toothbrush to death, the idea of putting it between my legs doesn’t really sound like it would be a very sexy experience. Luckily, thanks to the Revel Body Sonic, I’ll never have to find out!
The smarty pants behind the Revel Body Sonic
have used True Sonic
technology (from what what I learned at AVN
, some of the creators used to work for Phillips Sonicare!) to create a vibrator that claims to be one of the most powerful in the industry.
Powered by a True Sonic motor, the bright pink nodule at the centre of the toy to acts like a piston that moves up and down while vibrating. So, instead of just vibrations, you get an up & down motion that feels kind of like someone is tapping on your clit (in the best way possible.
To get an idea of what the Revel Body Sonic looks like in action, you should probably watch this video. As you can see, when you turn on the toy, the pink nodule bounces up and down. Fun right?

The Revel Body Sonic offers ten different vibration modes/speeds. The sensations range from super rumbly on the lowest speeds to very high-pitched and buzzy on the highest settings. I’m a sucker for power, so when I got this toy I immediately turned it up to the highest speed. However, what I discovered is that the highest settings did almost nothing for me. What really rocked my world was the lower speeds where it’s rumbly & shaky & you can really see and feel the piston moving up and down. The feeling is well, simply divine. When asked to describe the sensation to a friend, I explained, “It’s like you’re sitting on top of a washing machine that’s gone out of control on the spin cycle, or experiencing the world’s rumbliest car ride.” As soon as the words slipped from my mouth, I immediately thought of the episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm where Larry discovers he has an “orgasmic car seat.”
Yes, the lower settings on the Revel Body are exactly like that.
But wait, there’s more!
