When looking for the perfect vibrator, a girl is always torn between quality and price. Too often, a low price tag means a low-quality toy that will short out and die before it even gets to it’s second use. I’ve always been cautious of toys that seem too good to be true for the price – especially when it’s from a company I haven’t heard of before. But, when Synergy Erotic contacted me about reviewing their Velvet Lusso Dual Vibrating Spheres – they just seemed different.
They understood fully that many women want affordable toys without all the bells and whistles, but that are still strong enough to get them off. They understood some women want a toy with good vibrations and variety – rather than all the extra features like silicone design, rechargeable port, and a storage bag. They understood that getting back to the basics is what’s really important, especially for a beginner’s toy.
This simple, sleek, dual-motor vibrator may not be the best vibrator out there, but if you’re looking for an inexpensive bullet vibrator that has good vibrations and a nice variety of patterns, this vibrator is perfect! It has mid-level vibrations and a few patterns, plus two vibrating balls. It would be perfect for the beginner who’s just starting to experiment with vibrations, or is looking for their first toy!
Dual Motored Design
The Velvet Lusso is a pair of 1.5 inch diameter faux-chrome vibrating spheres. Each is made of hard, lightweight plastic that is shiny and reflective. It feels very light and hollow. They have a seam around them, that can get a bit dirty during use, so be sure to clean them thoroughly. Both balls and the battery back are 100% submersible, so cleaning is very easy, and you can even take them in the bath! The battery and control pack is also made of plastic, and is comfortable to hold with easy to find buttons. The batteries are easy to insert, and stay put, so it won’t accidentally turn off during play.
Each ball is individually tethered, allowing you to use them solo or easily with a partner. When using the vibrator solo, you can cradle both balls on either side of your clit – or use the second ball to vibrate in your vagina, on your anus (though we wouldn’t recommend putting it in the anus, just in case the cord breaks), on your nipples, or to vibrate any other area of your body. But, when you have a bullet with two ends on it, it seems only logical to use it for a duo. This toy is extremely versatile when it comes to using it with a partner. You can use it mutually on each other during play or sex, whether your partner is male or female! Anyone can enjoy the pleasure of vibration. If you’re using it with a guy, try putting it under his balls while you give him head, running it over his shaft to tease him, or putting one near his balls while you’re on top. There are endless possibilities with these little balls.
Vibrations & Power
This vibrator has a total of 7 functions – 3 speeds and 4 patterns. These vibrations range from light to mid-level, and would be perfect for a beginner or someone who prefers lighter vibration. The first, lowest speed is similar to an iPhone’s vibration. The next speed is more powerful. The final speed is faster, but not necessarily more powerful. They would have been absolutely perfect for me when I first started using toys, though now that my clit is spoiled by expensive toys, it can’t quite compare. Even so, these vibrations at this price are definitely something to appreciate. It’s hard to find mid-level vibrations in any low-cost toy, so they’d definitely knock the socks off your newbie user!
One button turns the toy on, while the other cycles through the vibration patterns. A memory chip allows you to return to your favorite setting without having to search through them all. The vibrations patterns are nice and also a rare find for a toy this price. The vibration patterns are as follows:
- Low Steady Vibration
- Medium Steady Vibration
- High Steady Vibration
- 3 High Quick Pulses followed by 1 Long Pulse
- High Quick Pulses
- Medium Pulse, High Pulse, Repeat
- Low to High Escalation
Because it’s waterproof, you can take this little toy into the bath with you. I loved that the cords were so long because I got to keep the remote out of the water. It also makes for easy cleaning too. The remote is technically waterproof as well, but I would resist submerging it, just in case the battery hatch isn’t on completely secure. The only thing I noticed that was a little frustrating was the cords easily tangled. You may find yourself untangling the bullets like a pair of headphones. It only takes a second, but when you’re amped up already, untangling cords isn’t something you want to deal with.
Pros & Cons
- Dual motors
- Variety of speeds and patterns
- Strong for the price
- Light to moderate, buzzy vibrations
This would be a top recommendation for someone wanting to buy their very first bullet, or add to their bullet collection, especially if they wanted to incorporate it into the bed with their partner. It is a great quality toy considering the low price, and has a nice variety of vibration speeds and patterns that would be perfect for someone who prefers lighter vibrations. It’s even waterproof, making it super easy to clean, and very versatile for taking into the bath or shower. For this price, you simply can’t beat it!
