Massager style vibrators can be great. Not only do they work well on your back and shoulders, they often also make good clitoral stimulators. I recently received the Symphony Massager from Cal Exotics to review as part of their Sexperts program, which I was happy to review.
The Symphony I received is a soft, pretty lavender in color. It’s made of plastic and covered with velvet cote, which is smooth but not slippery and has some drag to the surface. The shape reminds me of an ergonomic remote control with a bit more bend to it. The Symphony is easy to hold, and has a thumb depression in the top. A seam runs around the sides, but doesn’t affect the use.
The base on the Symphony is hard to turn, but that’s what helps keep it waterproof. Turning it 1/4 turn counter clockwise and pulling will pop the base off. On the bottom small raised lock and unlock symbols will help you determine which way to turn it if you forget.
The power button is set into silver. Unfortunately, there isn’t a dedicated on/off button- you’ll have to cycle through all the patterns to turn it off. When the Symphony is turned on, it provides five patterns of vibration:
- moderate vibration
- intense vibration
- tango pattern: 2 short pulses followed by 1 long pulse
- quickstop pattern: med pulse
- samba pattern: low, high freq pulse followed by a high longer pulse. Sounds musical
The vibrations are moderate and more throbby than buzzy, which makes this great for so many uses. The Symphony is a bit loud, but with some background music on it’s likely that no one will hear it.
The ergonomic shape of the Symphony also makes this ideal for self upper back massage, as well as partner massage. Since it’s waterproof it’s great to use in the shower or bath as well as in bed. The vibrations are also very loud – louder than I would have expected.
The Symphony is easy to clean. Simply wash with warm water and an antibacterial soap and dry with a soft cloth. You can also clean this with your favorite toy cleaner.
So, Does It Work? I really liked the shape of the Symphony. It was easy and comfortable to hold no matter where on my body I was using it. While the vibrations weren’t strong enough for me when using this clitorally to take me to orgasm, they were pleasant for foreplay.
My husband and I enjoyed using this as a back massager as well. Since the vibrations are throbby it really felt good on my back and shoulders, and we had fun using it in the shower as well.
If you're looking for a massager style vibrator with low to moderate throbby vibrations, the Symphony is a good one to look at. Thank you to Cal Exotics for sending this to me for free to review!
