Review: Orchid G-spot vibrator

I bought the Orchid a few years ago as my first foray into G-spot toys. At only $28, it was a steal for a toy with such a delicious-looking shape. When I found out I could get in turquoise (as opposed to dark purple), that clinched it – it had to be mine.

The Orchid is made of hard plastic, which some find too rigid for their pleasure, but I’m a fan of vibrators that don’t give at all – they give my clit the pressure it needs.

The Orchid has an egg-shaped head that’s made to press nicely against the G-spot. It does, once it’s in, but the entry is a bit of a bitch – that bulbous head never seems to agree with my vaginal opening. Lube helps, but it still feels weird initially.

The other major downfall of the Orchid is its very narrow neck. The toy is recommended by Good For Her staff as a great pick for beginners, but it’s not the best choice for intermediate to advanced G-spotters who may prefer a more filling sensation. The Orchid’s rigid, narrow body doesn’t satisfy my vagina, even while its head is doing a sweet number on my G-spot.

But – BUT! – the Orchid is great for clitoral stimulation! In fact, for at least a year, it was my primary clitoral stimulator. Since its vibrations are designed to penetrate thick vaginal walls, they are very strong and rumbly, just the way my clit likes ‘em. The head is a nice shape for sitting on top of the clit and curving around it a little bit. At its highest setting, the Orchid is more than strong enough to bring me to a roaring orgasm. I wish the toy’s control dial was easier to reach with one hand – I always end up having to use two hands to manage the Orchid, because I like to turn up the power throughout my use of it, which makes it difficult to handle a dildo at the same time.

This toy takes two AA batteries, which go into the twist-off battery chamber at the base. There’s a little rubber strip around the chamber which makes the Orchid totally waterproof – fun times in the bath, anyone?

Overall, I would recommend this toy to someone who wants to begin to explore their G-spot, or someone who likes a fair bit of power on their clit. It’s certainly not a perfect toy by any means, but it gets the job done, and it comes in pretty colors.

    oh my god, i just randomly stumbled upon this blog and just started skimming through but had to stop at this. this was like one of my first toys and my go-to for the longest time! it eventually broke and i never knew what it was called or anything so i was sad thinking i’d never find it again.. that was like like 6-7 years ago so i’ve moved on since, but you’re definitely right.. it is an awesome toy for clit stimulation, i’d put it in my top 5 favorites list til this day

    I know several companies sell a version of this now, and I once got one for review that I think was made by CalEx. Sadly it was bright pink and had the velvet-touch coating, but I was impressed by the power and rumbly-ness. My clit and g-spot both liked it. My power-queen partner liked it too. I think it works so well because the rotating weight is inside the egg-shaped tip, which gives room for a bigger/heavier weight resulting in thumpier vibes. Good thing they’re cheap, though, because mine stopped working after only a month or two.
