Bells and whistles? The “Cadillac” of vibrators? A multi-spot-stimulating Rabbit? I love all these, but my absolute all-time favorite sex toy is very petite and unassuming. Designed years ago by erotic film star and director Candida Royalle, the Natural Contours Petite Vibrator is “ergonomically contoured to fit a woman’s mons for maximum pleasure.” Measuring a mere four inches long and about an inch wide at the tip, it was designed especially to help breast cancer survivors reclaim their sexuality. The vibrator has three speeds and a four-point gliding button (off, high, medium, low) that’s easy to find and move, even if fingers are slippery.
I like it because it’s reliable, it’s discreet, and it can travel anywhere in my luggage without drawing unwanted attention. It’s advertised as perfectly conforming to the mons – and it does that, very nicely – but it’s also great for vaginal penetration and can reach the G-spot with satisfying results.
Um, about the unwanted attention – there was an episode when I was putting luggage in the trunk with my mother-in-law and my duffel suddenly began to buzz. I told her an alarm clock must have gone off and reached in to turn off the switch without further discovery. That does lead to a complaint I have heard from some, that the motor is somewhat loud and can be distracting. Can’t say I’ve noticed in any other circumstance . I should also add that descriptions of the most recent model say it has a quiet motor, so perhaps that feature has been improved.
The current model comes in a pink color to match the pink breast cancer ribbon, and part of the purchase price goes to Breast Cancer Action, a non-profit that focuses on breast cancer education and discovering the origins of breast cancer to eliminate the disease at its source. I’ve had mine so long it pre-dates that color. Mine is a soft salmon color, but otherwise a perfect match for this photo, and obviously very sturdy, given its longevity.
The Natural Contours Petite Vibrator can be found wherever sex toys are sold. It can also be ordered from Adam & Eve for $29.95 plus shipping.
…so there you have it. That’s my fave, and I’m sticking to it. What’s yours? Tell me about it, and let me know if you’d be willing to blog about it some week for our Stay Sexy column!
