Since discovering the pleasures of Prostate stimulation, I am always looking out for something new and different.
The L’Amourose Prostate Massager that I bought a little while ago completely blew my mind, with both it’s power and how incredibly quiet it was. When I was asked by Lovehoney if I would test this, I was initially a little unsure – vibrations was one thing, but rotations as well? Surely this is just a gimmick? However, after reading some reviews of the original Revo, I accepted the challenge and waited patiently for it’s arrival.
The packaging is sleek, stylish and very masculine. There is a simple black matte outer slip which just features the product name. Underneath that is a black keepsake box, which again just features the product name. As you lift up the lid, you’ll see the Revo and the remote control nestled in a cardboard tray. Underneath that is a storage bag, USB cable and a magnetic charge point. There is also an instruction manual. Presentation wise, it’s good. I always feel that when people take the time to package their products nicely, it really helps enhance the overall experience (But then again, I’m a sucker for a nice box… ooer!)
The Revo Stealth is made from a mixture of silky smooth skin-safe silicone, with an ABS plastic base. It is shaped like a standard prostate toy, with the insertable prostate stimulator, and a curved base at the bottom that acts as a perineum stimulator. This section is covered in lots of pleasurable little bumps.
The Revo is named because the shaft of the toy actually rotates – so as it’s inside you, the rotating tip is set to provide some amazing stimulation to the prostate – something that you just don’t get from a regular massager, vibrating or otherwise. There are 2 rotational speeds – 25 RPM on the lowest setting and 35 RPM on the highest setting. The base of the toy also vibrates, so as it rests against the perineum, it will provide some deep rumbly sensations outside, whilst the rotations work on the inside. There are 6 vibration speeds, ranging from standard continuous vibrations to various pulses and waves.
The toy is not completely silent, but it is one of the more quieter toys that I have – it’s comparable to the sound of an electric toothbrush – I placed it on the bed, turned it on high, went down to the bottom of the stairs – couldn’t hear it. I went into our en-suite bathroom and closed the door – still couldn’t hear it. So far, so good.
The Revo is extremely simple to use. You’ll need to first charge the toy – simply inset the micro-USB cable into the little magnetic charging cap – attach to the toy and wait 3.5 hours. Now I’m not currently certain how long the charge lasts, but if it’s anything like the Revo, you are supposed to get around 10 hours of play with every charge. The longest I was able to use it in one session was over an hour with no dulling of sensations – and it’s been used a couple of times since then – so it’s looking good charge wise.
When you are ready to go. Slather yourself and the Revo with a good water-based anal lube and gently insert the soft silicone shaft. If you are still new to anal/prostate play, it recommends lying on your side with your knees to your chest to make it easier – not so much of an issue for me. After carefully inserting, and making sure the soft nubs were resting on my perineum, I just lay there for a few moments to get used to the sensation. Then I picked up the little remote control, and got down to some serious fun.
To turn on the Revo, you need to hold the Power button down for a few seconds, until you see a little red light flash at the top of the remote. A second, quick press will turn it on. This will turn the Revo on to its lowest Rotation and Vibrating setting. To turn off the Revo – simply hold the power button down for a few seconds, and it will turn off.
So after I turned the Revo on for the first time, I couldn’t help but immediately cry out “Oh my god!” I knew the toy was rotating, but I honestly didn’t think it would actually work once it was inserted – but holy cow, I was wrong! Immediately, the tip was working out my prostate like it had never been touched before. This was a completely different sensation to something like a standard vibrating massager. It really did feel like a finger was gently circling my prostate. Immediately, I had Goosebumps. It was like discovering anal for the first time.
So now I had to work my way through the different settings. So I moved it up to the second speed of rotations (oh my… I could already feel my toes beginning to curl) and moved to the second speed of vibrations. It got very intense, very fast! So much so, I was literally shaking all over the bed – but no matter what I did, there was no relenting of vibrations – whatever position I was in, it continued to probe and poke my prostate. I had to go to the third speed, in the name of science; I moved it to the highest vibration setting. By now, I was completely covered in sweat but alas; I did not achieve a prostate orgasm. On this setting, I personally did find it just too intense.
However, after giving myself time to calm down, I started again, and this time kept it on the first rotation speed, and the second vibration speed. This seemed to be the sweet spot for me – I lay there in absolute bliss as the Revo did it’s thing, and used my hands to explore my body – my nipples were extremely sensitive and after 45 minutes or so, I was incredibly hard – and as I brushed passed my penis, it was too much and I had an incredibly explosive orgasm.
Now unfortunately, all my tests have been solo – however I can totally see this being a great couples toy – give the remote to your partner, and perhaps have them tie you up/blindfold you – and let them control the Revo – this is next on my to do list – and I can’t wait!
Immediately, I had Goosebumps. It was like discovering anal for the first time.
At times, I found that the combined stimulation of the rotations and the vibrations occasionally got a bit too much. Originally, I thought that you were unable to operate the vibrations or rotations separately. But that is indeed, not the case – the Revo can indeed be operated with just vibrations or just rotations.
To do so, you simple hold down the ‘vibration’ button on the remote for a few seconds, and this will turn the vibrations off, but will keep the ‘rotation’ going – and vice versa. When I originally wrote this review, I wrote that it was not possible to do this. However, after someone ‘kindly’ pointed out my error, I went back and had another play and confirmed this was the case, and upon reflection, I had to adjust my final review (but only slightly).
Clean-up and Maintenance
The Revo is only splash-proof, so great care must be taken when cleaning it. I would recommend either using some toy wipes, or use a soft cloth with some warm water and toy cleaner. Once it is clean, you can either leave it to dry or use a lint-free cloth to just dry it before either popping it in the supplied storage bag (or back into it’s box) to keep it nice and clean, ready for your next use.
Well what can I say, really? Compared to some of the other prostate toys I have tried (Especially the Rosa) – this really is a great little toy, that offers something a little bit different to just your standard vibrating toy. It’s simple and easy to use, but based on the intensity of some of the settings, I might put this down as an intermediates toy, rather than something for beginners – I would consider myself an intermediate and even I found some of it a little bit ‘too much’. But it looks great, is certainly powerful and the remote control function means that you really can have lots of fun with this in the bedroom. Why not combine this with a Remote Control Love Egg – you could give each other pleasure without even having to be in the same room? Food for thought…
