Ann Summers is well-known for creating gorgeous set-tos in the UK, but if you’re in the US, you may not have heard of this fabulous designer. I’m here to change that. Ann Summers is responsible for some of the coolest, most high-quality sex toys out there – one of which, The Rampant Rampant (The Metal One) is one of my absolute favorite toys. They’re also the inventors of the “Ultimate” line – where their “Ultimate O” and “Ultimate G” are rumored to give “third level orgasms”… whatever that means, I want it!
I received the Ultimate O vibrator a while ago… but realized that since this product is from the UK, I needed a charger adapter to get this baby ready for play. Once that was settled, it was time to review… and I’m definitely glad I went through the extra effort to get this toy going. The Ultimate O is unique vibrator with a sleek and sultry design that’s so cool and clit-consuming, that it definitely brings some “third level” qualities to life.
The design of the Ultimate O is unique, yet surpassingly simple. It combines the pleasure of dual motors with a third “ear” that tickles and teases. The end result is three unique pieces which surround the clitoris with sensation. Each of the two larger parts have separate motors, while the third and smaller portion does not have a motor, but lightly vibrates along with the rest of the toy. Ann Summers notes that gynecology experts helped to design this awesome vibrator, so that it can “encompass and stimulate the entire length and all sides of the outer clitoral area”. Fabulous! It’s also made of 100% pure silicone, one of the best materials on the market, and is totally rechargeable via a UK outlet (you’ll need an adapter for the US – like this cheap one from Amazon!).
The vibration settings of the Ultimate O are unlike any other vibrator I’ve tried before. Instead of having the traditional “low-medium-high-patterns” style, the vibrations on this toy seem varied and subtle. In fact, they are so subtle that when I first cycled through the vibration patterns, I thought there was hardly any change at all. I gave my Ultimate O a full charge before coming back, to see if a little more battery power would bring these vibrations to life. But, I realized that they are truly meant to be subtle… and almost imperceptible in their differences. The vibrations are all somewhat buzzy, but a bit rumbly. They are much stronger or weaker than one another. But, the patterns differ slightly with each setting
Each vibration pattern is indicated by a colored LED light on the button, so you can easily get back to your favorites.
The best way I can describe the patterns are:
- A mid-level, buzzing vibration with a slight pulse. (white light)
- A mid-level, more rumbly vibration. (blue light)
- A low-level, rumbly vibration – where the two motors on the larger parts occasionally alternate vibration. (purple light)
- Vibrations that start really buzzy and light, and get progressively more strong and rumbly, occasionally alternating motors, then repeating starting at buzzy. (green light)
- Slightly rumbly, slightly buzzy, slightly rumbly, slightly buzzy. This one isn’t at all pronounced. (red light)
- Kind of like a roller coaster vibration setting – low to high then low again, slightly pulsing. (yellow light)
- Another variation of high to low. (turquoise light)
For me, the vibrations are strong… but not strong or rumbly enough to have a fabulous orgasm. They are semi-strong but buzzy, so I can have an orgasm if I really concentrate on working this toy to pleasure… but I wouldn’t be able to get off on just the vibration alone. I suspect that a beginner would find these vibrations absolutely perfect for their preferences. I would have loved this toy if it were one of the first 25 I tried – but after getting comfortable with some powerhouses, it’s hard to go back. The vibrations would also be great for anyone who prefers a light to middle level vibration.
Even if it were a bit more powerful, the patterns don’t feel pronounced enough. You can figure out what’s going on if you really concentrate, but an unseasoned clitoris wouldn’t really be able to distinguish between them. The “low” and “high” vibrations are so similar, that there’s hardly any distinction. I wish that the vibration speeds, patterns, and intensities were significantly stronger and more pronounced.
Pros & Cons
- Soft, silky smooth silicone
- Unique design
- Easy to use and recharge
- Light, buzzy, tickling vibrations
- Hard to differentiate between the vibration settings
I absolutely love the design of this little vibrator. It’s hand-held, easy to travel with, and even easier to keep in your nightstand for instant pleasure. I love the design, which totally tackles, tempts, and teases my clit in all the best places. But, I wish that the vibrations were just a bit more powerful… a bit more rumbly… and the patterns much more easy to distinguish. This would be a fabulous vibrator for a beginner or anyone who prefers lighter to mid-level vibrations, but if you’re looking for a powerhouse with unique patterns, you’ll have to look elsewhere.
