Revel Body SOL Review

~I received this item for free in exchange for an honest review.~

Clitoral vibrators are probably my favorite kind of sex toy to date.  I mean, I love sex toys in general, but clitoral vibes are by far the most used in my arsenal.  So of course when Revel Body offered for me to review their new vibrator, I wasn’t going to say no.

A little bit about it: The Revel Body SOL (not to be confused with the original Revel Body) is a waterproof, rechargeable, clitoral vibrator that comes with 3 interchangeable heads.  It doesn’t so much just vibrate like most vibes, but instead has a removable center piston that pumps in and out.  It has six settings, and a simple 3 button operation: On/Off, power up, and power down.

What I loved: I’ll say this for the Revel Body, it is very different.  The round shape fits in my hands comfortably, and the pumping sensation instead of a normal vibration really does feel quite good against my clitoris.  The interchangeable heads allows me to customize the sensation.  Unfortunately, my love of the design doesn’t overshadow some pretty big problems I had with it.

revel2What I didn’t: Although the first three settings are pleasurable and the third setting is strongish, the last three of the 6, including their touted “OM” setting, don’t seem to affect me.  When I use these settings I can’t even feel anything on my clitoris.  Nothing.  Even though the company makes it clear that it’s actually the first 3 settings that are the strongest, I would think their OM setting would at least do something for me, since it’s such a huge selling point.  I tried using the OM setting elsewhere on my body, since the Revel Body SOL is also supposed to be good for body massages, but it just tickles.  I simply don’t understand this setting.

Now let’s talk about power.  The third setting is admittedly strong…ish… but not quite strong enough for me.  I am the first one to stand up and say my clitoris is not particularly sensitive, but the We-Vibe Touch and Tango as well as the Je Joue MiMi can bring me to orgasm without much of an issue.  The Revel Body SOL, however, gets me close, and that’s it.  Agonizingly close.  Frustratingly close.  Angeringly close.  And that’s it.  I found that I was getting so irritated by being so close and not being able to orgasm that I was reaching for other toys.  It never pushes me over the edge to orgasm, and that’s where I simply give up on this vibrator.

Final thought: The Revel Body SOL is a nice try at a revolutionary vibrator.  For those with clitorises more sensitive than mine, it may very well work for you.  For those of you that need a little more power to get to orgasm, you’ll probably want to pass this one up.

Revel Body SOL Review — 6 Comments

  1. It’s such a shame you didn’t get on with it. I know the previous version had a few flaws mentioned by other bloggers so I thought the SOL would be better. I have a feeling this wouldn’t work for me either but I kinda really want to try it because it has an orange blob in the middle.

  2. So, they went from 10 “speeds” to 6? That’s….well, whatever. It doesn’t sound like they actually did anything worth value, other than making it slightly less complicated (no low/high, 4 fewer speeds). Sorta glad it now comes with 3 different heads but at the same time, the ones they include are the ones that did the least for me. That one that looks like a basting brush was damn painful.

    • I looked at the new SOL model and it is more than just “going from 10 speeds to 6”. I is stronger and has a bunch of other fixes. I have the original which I liked, but the new one is totally different. They apperently did listen to consumer and reviewers because it is great.

      Too bad you are too prejudice look into things before you dismiss them.

      The underwater suction is amazing.

      Quiet, Strong, Versatile and high quality. Apparently, it is not for kids or jaded reviewers.

  3. I have the original and I really only use it for bathtime fun. I had hoped that they’d taken all the feedback from reviewers into account and increased the power. Darn.
