We Just Found Your New Best Friend, & It's A Vibrator — We're Honestly Fangirling

So here's the thing: we just found a very, very cute (and like, GOOD) sex toy and we want to talk to you about it. Sex toys are SO empowering, and it's important that we talk about sex toys openly, honestly, and without shame. It's 2018, you guys. We masturbate. Let's talk about it. 

ICYMI, every week on the Her Campus Instagram Live, Rachel and Gina host #SexTalk, and we're taking it here, to our site, so we can get even more ~real~ with you. We have a ton of thoughts about sex toys, from vibrators to strap-ons to dildos and more, and we've learned that we really like to hang out with you all and just like, chat about them. We're always here for you, and we're excited to talk to you about masturbation and sex in this new and exciting way. 

The current sex thing we're excited about right now: The Girl's Best Friend by Sweet Vibrations. 

Rachel: Some basic info on this: it's pink, it's supposed to simulate oral sex, and it also acts as a penetrative vibrator. First off, I want to talk about how this looks, because it’s pretty.

Gina: It reminds me of a sea-creature.

Rachel: I love that. It honestly does remind me of a seahorse. It’s very hand-sized and cozy to hold, which is nice.

Gina: The nubbin tip is fascinating to me. It almost seems like something you’d use in the kitchen to make something foamy or frothy, or for a face cleanser.

Rachel: Yes, hard agree that it seems like a very 2018 face cleansing device that you’d plug into your laptop at work and charge all day and make people jealous with. But it’s a vibrator, so that’s obviously even better.

Gina: I understand that this is supposed to mimic oral sex, which I think is really really cool, because I’ve had a lot of sex toys that are penetrative, but this def has a different sensation because of the little tip & the sensation. I don’t know if for me it exactly translated to the same feeling, but it felt different, and sometimes things that feel different just feel good.

Rachel: Def with you. It didn't feel like a "licking" sensation, but mostly felt like a very, very, very intense feeling that was almost Magic Wand-esque​ in its endless power. 

Gina: Because it was so different from my normal go-to sex toys, this one made me realize I stick with routines and just do what is going to make me happy and that I know is gonna work. It was nice to switch things up and it almost got me off in a better way because it was so new and different and exciting.

Rachel: I’m always going to like my wand the best, but it’s very ugly and intimidating and partners are always scared of it, so this is a less scary option but it still has similar feelings, at least to me.

Gina: How did you feel about the vibrator end of it?

Rachel: Hmmm. I wasn't super interested in it. There are enough vibrators that exist so tbh I wasn’t dying to try it.

Gina: Yeah, the rest of it is more compelling - I wasn’t super jazzed about it in comparison to how I felt about the little mouth. 

Rachel: What was your take on all of the different modes? It was super super buzzy and FULL of patterns. 

Gina: I was pleased with the modes, but think they translate more on the vibrator end than the nubbin end. But it’s always fun to mix things up.

Rachel: Yeah, I’m super boring and always just find one mode I like and stick with it for my entire life. But I have no regrets. It works for me so far.

Gina: It feels like I’m changing the channel on the tv, like hmm, hmm, how am I gonna feel about this one? 

Rachel: Hahahhahaha.

Gina: Did you try this at all for partner sex?

Rachel: I offered it to my partner as an option, but since it’s SO specific and you have to get the placement of the head just right, it feels like something they’d have to position and then you’d just kind of hold it. Which is fine, but not ideal. I will try it with a partner, and report back. It's cute and I want to share it with the world. 

Gina: I do just in general like the branding of this, and that it’s a girl’s best friend angle. Vibrators are often so intimidating and scary and just too penis shaped to the point that I don’t want it because it’s not cute? But this branding makes it way more approachable, and also conversational, bc I’m always about talking about masturbation with your friends, and having the word BFF in the actual product name just makes it so much better.

Rachel: I def agree. It’s very giftable, and I like the very specific shade of hot pink.

Gina: Also think it’s interesting that it was called “she,” like I never gender my sex toys, but in this case I’m down.

Rachel: Wait, yes, that’s cute. I’m into this as a friend you have casual sex with, also.

Gina: Are there any other things you’d combine it with? Lube, partners, etc.

Rachel: I can see this working well with a partner - like with a strap-on or with partner sex. Tbh I didn’t try it with lube, but if I used it with a partner I probably would.

Gina: I like the OMG Unbound one, and ones with mint, but I didn’t try it with plain lube.

Rachel: Let’s talk about charging it. I feel like the USB-charging thing is really popular right now, but also new.

Gina: Yeah, I felt comfortable charging this at work, and with roommates. It’s really cute and you don’t have to hide it away.

Rachel: Agree - especially since it doesn’t look like a body part at all, but more like a chic tool.

Gina: Also, I want to talk about how this is surprisingly affordable. Considering you get two ends for play time, and it’s cute and has so many speeds, it’s way cheaper than a lot of other vibrators out there.

Rachel: Here for it. The verdict? Super affordable for college students, super cute and non-threatening, and just generally a good fucking time.
