I love putting my penis inside things. I’m not going to lie, it feels bloody brilliant.
As such, I have an over-flowing box of masturbators, yet I’m always looking for something new and interesting as the downside is that most masturbators are so often very alike – so when Lovehoney asked if I would test out a brand new product for them, I of course couldn’t say no.
The O Force Male Vibrator is a powerful 5 speed masturbator that’s a little bit like the Fun Factory Cobra Libre. When I first tried the Cobra Libre, I was impressed how vibrations alone could bring me to orgasm, but the touch button functionality of the Cobra was a little frustrating, so it doesn’t get used all that often. When this arrived (which took a while as the first unit I was sent was faulty!) I was very eager to give it a try.
As with all Lovehoney branded products, I can’t fault the simple but effective packaging. It’s a simple, sturdy box featuring nothing but the image of the product with some basic information. It’s very non-threatening
Inside the package is the Masturbator and a little leaflet explaining how to use it and care for it. The masturbator itself is made from silicone and ABS plastic. It features a large deep opening which is flexible and soft. The base is a twist cap which opens to reveal the battery compartment, and is operated by a single click button at the top. You will need 3 AA batteries (which are not included) but I do need to bring up a very important point: You must only use disposable batteries in this toy. For a start, the toy doesn’t work with rechargeable batteries (I have no idea why). You will also find that if you manage to squeeze rechargeable batteries in there, getting them out will not be easy – I had no idea that there was a difference in size between disposable and rechargeable batteries – we’re talking mere mm’s – but it makes a real difference in this toy.
There are 5 different speeds, and at its highest speeds, it’s pretty powerful. It’s not the quietest toy, but it’s also not the loudest, by far – so using this in a closed bedroom, under the covers – I don’t think anyone would hear you using it. If you want to get an idea of how loud it is, have a little look at the video towards the end of this review.
How to use
When you are ready, you’ll want to apply a good amount of water-based lube to yourself and the inside of the orifice. The orifice itself is thicker at the bottom, as this is where the vibrations are transmitted the strongest – the idea being that it provides some amazing sensations to the frenulum.
So it was time to give it ago. I got myself all lubed up and slipped inside. The sleeve has an internal depth of approx 4″ and a diameter of approx 2″. As I inserted, I put the O Force on its lowest speed. It felt okay, but I definitely needed it to be stronger. So I slowly worked my way up the 5 speeds. By the time I was on the 5th speed, the vibrations were transmitting heavily through my hand, but I didn’t really feel too much elsewhere.
Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t completely unpleasant and I was definitely feeling the vibrations throughout the shaft, but they didn’t feel as deep as they do with similar devices (the Cobra Libre for example) – and I think this is down to the Cobra having a shorter depth and a slightly narrow canal, meaning the silicone grips your shaft, whereas I found the O Force didn’t grip me all the way around as the opening is quite wide.
Also, as the canal is just a little bit deeper, it almost feels like it’s missing the sweet spot, and stroking with the O Force oddly enough, didn’t feel at all natural, and because of the width of the opening, it just doesn’t work as a stroker.
That said, I just want to state here, that I do think this has the potential to be a great toy. It’s got plenty of power, it’s waterproof and is made from totally body-safe materials. For me, however, as I’ve explored more and more toys, especially masturbators, I’m definitely a ‘texture’ fiend, and I want to feel it grip me tightly. If you could combine the tightness and texture of the Lovehoney Hummer Wand attachment, with the power of the O Force, then I think you would definitely be onto an absolute winner. But for me, it just didn’t really hit the spot and sadly, I didn’t experience the big O.
Clean-up and Maintenance
As the toy is waterproof, not only can you take it in the bath and shower, but it means clean-up is incredibly easy. Simply rinse under the tap with some warm water and toy cleaner, and then carefully dry and pop it back in its box. It attracts dust like a magnet (as most silicone toys do) so I would always advise just giving it a little wipe before your next use. I’ve found that on one set of batteries, on the most powerful setting, it’s lasted approx 3 hours of playtime so far, and I haven’t had to change them, or notice any loss in power. Ideally, this would be a rechargeable toy (or at the very least it could take rechargeable batteries) but I fully appreciate that this is designed to be a more affordable luxury male vibrator – and for the price, it does feel like you are getting value for money.
Whilst this didn’t really do much for me, I do think there are plenty of people who would benefit greatly from this. Whilst it may not have brought me to the big O, on one occasion, the vibrations alone were able to get me to an aroused state, which could be a benefit to those who may suffer from erectile dysfunction. I think if you’ve never experienced a vibrating masturbator like this before, again, I think you will certainly be in for a treat. Just remember to use a good coating of water-based lube, as the silicone can be quite unforgiving when it gets on to the higher settings. If you don’t feel you can justify springing for the Cobra Libre or the PULSE – then this might be a better place to start – especially if you have never experienced vibrations before.
