BKK VR Glasses With Dual Stim Vibrator Controller Review

By Pleasure Panel reviewer Lovebirds_x

Sex toys featuring virtual reality technology are something that have intrigued me for a while now. When I saw this adorable looking set I was dying to check it out. One look and I fell in love with the beautiful pearlescent pink headset, it seriously is what drew me to this item! Massive thank you to Cara and BKK Sex Toy for the opportunity to try the BKK VR Glasses With Dual Stim Vibrator Controller out 🙂

I have a lot to say about this set, so I’m just going to launch right in.

BKK VR Glasses With Dual Stim Vibrator Controller Review Pleasure Panel-2

The BKK VR Glasses headset feels sturdy but is super lightweight, really the only weight involved comes from the phone inserted in it. The straps are comfortable and well adjustable, while the curved unit sits comfortably against your face. All in all it’s a good quality piece of kit.

The one thing that let the BKK VR Glasses headset down for me what that it cannot hold my phone (Samsung Galaxy S6) in place securely. If I insert it without the phone cover I have on it, the phone frequently slides out when I turn my head (often hitting the home button and closing the app for good measure), while if I insert it with the phone cover left on it is too bulky and over stretches the joint on the piece of plastic that holds the phone in place. I tried a few older Samsungs and an iPhone and had the same result. I think this is a case of one size fits all meaning no perfect fit for any phone, which is a shame. It’s not too much of a problem if you’re using this on or above a bed/other soft surface and you’re careful, but it’s something to consider before your phone hits the floor (sorry phone).

The dual stim controller vibrator is nicely presented in a rather stylish box, no storage bag is included but the box is slim enough that keeping it in the box won’t take up much room.

After being awed by the sweet shimmery pink of the headset, the luminous pink vibrator was rather flinch worthy. It’s made from a lovely silky smooth silicone, but it is 100% in your face day-glo pink. I’m not opposed to pink sex toys by any means, but I have to say…it’s a bit garish, especially when set beside the headset. It does at least make a cute little happy/laughing emoticon face with the buttons! (≧▽≦)

For reviewing purposes I figured it would be a good idea to try the vibrator on its own before distracting myself with the BKK VR Glasses headset. Honestly, I felt it was a little lacking as a stand alone toy.

The first thing I noticed is that the toy is quite petite. I don’t have official company measurements but I measure the internal arm as having just under a 4 inch circumference at its widest point and an insertable length of about 3.5 inches, max. The clitoral arm is about 2 inches long. The petite size combined with the amount of flex in the arms makes it super comfortable to use and while it seems small, I found it was able to hit both my g-spot and and clitoris at the same time with ease. It may not be able to make you feel ‘full’ but it can at least hit the key spots, which is great.

The controls are pretty simple; pressing and holding the centre button turns the vibrator on and off, the right button (while looking at it while inserted) controls features in the app and the left button scrolls through the different settings on the vibrator. You can also press and hold the left button to dress/undress characters in the app and tap the central button to change position. More on that later!

The vibrator does not begin vibrating as soon as you turn it on, but rather waits for you to press the left button. The settings are as follows;

  1. External arm on-constant vibration
  2. Both arms on- constant vibration
  3. Internal arm stronger constant vibration, external arm pulsing vibration
  4. Both arms pulsing at maximum strength
  5. Low to high speed wave of vibrations
  6. Burst of short, fast pulses followed by one long pulse, repeat

I’m not going to lie, with a vibrator that features left and right buttons it’s a bit disappointing that you still have to scroll one way through settings. If you accidentally scroll past the setting you want, you’ll have to either scroll through them all to get back there or turn the vibrator off/on again to reset it to the first function (there’s no ‘last used setting’ memory function). It’s even more disappointing that there’s no way to turn the speed up or down, you can only switch between modes. I thought we were past the age of single speed vibrators as it’s impossible to find a single speed that suits all women, but apparently not.

The vibrations are the shallow, buzzy kind, which I found odd considering this is a rechargeable toy. The insertable arm vibrations are a little more rumbly, but not much more and not a patch on any other rechargeable toy I’ve tried. I don’t mind buzzy vibrations and can most certainly orgasm from them so this didn’t bother me too much, but this was where I ran into my first problem with this toy; the clitoral arm drastically decreases in power as soon as you turn on the insertable arm. Which is bad as to be honest, and I say this as a woman who is in no way a ‘power queen’, it wasn’t overly powerful to start with. By the time I got to the pulsing patterns I could barely feel the clitoral vibrations at all, and while they were stronger the internal vibrations just weren’t rumbly enough for my g-spot. Beyond feeling like a battery powered toy, to me this feels like a battery powered toy with dying batteries. There’s just not enough power to run both arms and even when I stuck to the clit arm only setting or swapped it up and used the insertable arm on my clit, I still found myself wanting more power.

At this point, it became clear to me that the visual stimulation from the app was going to be required if this toy had any chance of giving me an orgasm.

The app is downloaded directly from the website, a good thing in my opinion as it means it’s not in your app store history. The install is quick and easy and takes up surprisingly little room at just 204MB. Since I’m only using the beta version of the app that will likely increase as the content expands, but even then it’s not likely to get huge.

My first impressions of the app were all positive. It’s got a clean, simple layout and it runs well. I ran this from a Samsung Galaxy S6, which is above their minimum recommended specs in all respects, and had no problems with crashing, slow loading times etc. The one thing I would note is that it made my phone run VERY hot very quickly, particularly when running in VR mode, so that’s something to be cautious of.

The app is divided into two sections; sex mode, which is basically a quick play ‘dive right in’ mode, and story mode, which involves a highly amusing ‘story’ before things get steamy.

It turns out the laughing face emoji on the vibrator was a foreshadowing of things to come as story mode had me in stitches. You begin by customising both your male and female characters then select normal or VR (split screen for the headset) mode. Then, you’re good to go!

Story mode begins with the male character rhyming off a list of super cheesy lines in a super cheesy voice. Then the super cheesy (but super catchy) music comes on and boom! He’s dancing, full blown pec twitching stripper style dancing. It is the most hilarious thing I’ve ever witnessed while attempting to pleasure myself but sadly, it is in no way a turn on.

Story mode continues by showing you the female character, who is sitting on the bed laughing and cringing, receiving a foot rub from her passionate male lover, all while the bouncy stripper music continues to play in the background. He then proceeds to switch positions, standing in such a way that he can dry hump her outstretched leg while still giving her that foot massage. I’m sorry, but it’s still just hilarious and not at all arousing. I’m not even sure if it is supposed to be?

You are then switched to a first person POV where you become the female character and get to watch as, in various positions, the male performs oral sex on you. Your choice of clothing for the female character matters here, as many of the items of clothing block his head completely and you’re pretty much staring at nothing (not that you can really see what he’s doing anyway). Yup, the corny stripper music is still playing in the background. Actually the music is possibly the best part of this show, it’s pretty fun!

I should mention that up until this point, there has been a big ‘skip’ button in the corner of the screen, an admission perhaps that none of this is sexy in the slightest and you may feel free to skip to the good part.

The good part is, well, it’s okay. The music stops (which greatly reduced the entertainment factor) and you jump into watching the happy couple having sex on the bed, with a choice of 9 different sex positions (mostly third person, some from the female POV and some from utterly abstract angles) to switch between. After the hilarious build up, I have to admit I found myself flicking through the 9 positions with more than a little disinterest. It’s all a bit flat, with the occasional cheesy porn star ‘ohh it’s so good’ line or overacted moan thrown in. Watching this in VR mode isn’t much different to watching it in normal mode as VR mode simply shows you the same scenes from the same set angles in 3D instead of 2D, it doesn’t move with your head or change angle at all. Slightly disappointing, although the 3D is very well done.

All in all story mode is the most hilarious and corny 3D ‘porn’ I’ve ever watched. It made me laugh (a lot) but it left me wondering what I was really doing here, and why was I holding a vibrator? Utterly not turned on but still a happy camper, it was time for me to give sex mode a go.

Sex mode involves a little more set up than story mode. First you select a location, where there’s a remarkably varied choice; a remote island beach, a sex dungeon, a dishevelled classroom, an empty train carriage or a plain old bedroom. You then customise your male and female characters and select your sex positions. It’s a little hard to make out what you’re picking here, as you make your selection by clicking vague thumbnails featuring the type of ‘people’ icons you see on public bathroom signs.

Sex mode starts by playing some more laid back cheesy music and showing you a full length shot of your female character. The camera pans over her teasingly before flashing several different provocatively posed shots of her. At this point, I began to suspect the company had made a boo boo. As sex mode continued to unfold, with the female character taking centre stage and the male character acting as little more than an accessory, my suspicions were confirmed. They haven’t changed sex mode, from what I’ve seen of the male version of this toy this is the same sex mode that is featured in the male orientated app. As in, when you zoom in to first person mode, it puts you inside the body of the male. You watch the female character suck ‘your’ dick. You watch her give you a tit wank. You watch her writhing on top of you, beneath you, whatever, she’s the one reacting to the thrusting, not the male. It’s focused on her, and more to the point it’s mostly focused on her doing things to or reacting to your penis. Even when you watch it in VR mode and you can ‘move’ around the room, changing the angles, the app is still all about watching her doing things to you, the male. Oh dear.

With sex mode, it feels like you’ve got to either be a female who is attracted to other females or a female who enjoys watching other females to get any enjoyment from it. Ideally, you’d be a female who wants to watch another female performing various sex acts on a male while you are put inside the body of that male. That’s a pretty odd way to limit your target audience, I reckon. Surely when you’re thrusting a vibrator in and out of yourself with a VR device synced, you want to be watching the male character reacting, as if it’s him inside you? As it stands you’re watching the female character react, like…I don’t know, like you’re using the toy on her instead of you? You could imagine she IS you? Or that you’re using a double dildo with her? I don’t know. I feel like I’m trying too hard to make this app work for female users when it clearly is just a copy paste from the male toy app, where the point is that the female character is reacting to you thrusting in and out of the motion sensing male masturbator. I feel like they should have reversed this to make this a ‘female’ app to go with the female toy. Maybe I’ve got the wrong idea?

Anyway. It just so happens I am a female who is attracted to other females, so I was able to appreciate the hotness in sex mode. It is an undeniably good show and again, the 3D modelling is great. The VR is a bit glitchy, every so often it sets itself at a really weird angle and you have to exit the app to reset it. But when it works, it’s fantastic and very immersive. It’s a lot of fun matching outfits to locations too, like the schoolgirl outfit in the classroom or the Shibari rope in the dungeon, and with the amount of sex positions/acts it’s easy to find something you can relate to and, hopefully, get off to.

If you’re in the mood for some custom 3D porn, setting up then stepping into this virtual world is definitely going to get you in the mood. Although I must admit, it’s more fun to set the included vibrator to the side to be used as an app remote only while employing the help of a more capable toy. I’m so saddened by the lack of vibration strength, the toy has so much potential 🙁

At this point I sadly feel I have more criticisms to make and yet nothing else good to say. In no particular order;

The customisation needs work. The female has a lot of great customisation options, including a range of hairstyles and three different, mostly realistic skin colours (although she retains her vaguely Asian features no matter the skin colour). There are sliders to tweak her proportions including head size, waist, hips and chest, along with more general adjustments to her height and weight (although she’ll never be plus size by anyone’s standards). Her wardrobe ranges from a kinky Shibari rope harness to a modest summer dress with a plethora of both skimpy and classy lingerie pieces in between, plus she has a full range of dress up outfits including a ‘seifuku’ style school uniform, cheerleader, police officer, bunny girl, air hostess, Asian pop idol, cow girl and more.

The male, on the other hand, has far fewer options. He’s got sliders but they barely change him at all; basically you can have a tall ripped guy or a short ripped guy. His hair options and outfits are limited and his skin colours are a joke; the darkest option literally paints him black. Now, he is likely to get a lot more customisation options in the full app I’m sure. But what bugs me most about him is that he NEVER wears a shirt or shoes, not even when you dress him in one of his two ‘full’ suits. I hope that changes in the final app, because while I can appreciate that a lot of work has gone into sculpting his chiselled chest I would still like to be able to put a shirt on him, just as I can fully dress the female. As despicably shallow as I know this sounds, I don’t particularly like super muscley guys and if I can’t change his body in the way I can change the female’s body to make him more my ‘type’, I at least want to be able to cover him up with a nice shirt.

The controls are awkward. The buttons on the vibrator are excellent at controlling certain aspects, such as changing the sex positions and dressing/undressing the characters one item at a time. The app responds quickly and accurately to button presses on the vibrator, but the right button that supposedly speeds up the animation doesn’t do anything when I press it. Plus, you have to get everything set up with the phone in your hand, then try to slot it into the headset without pressing any of the buttons on your phone (since you can’t lock your phone without turning off the screen), an irritating task given the shape of the headset and the position of the home button on most phones. More times than enough I’ve ended up staring at my phones wallpaper through the BKK VR Glasses headset rather than the app and had to start all over, which is just frustrating.

Overall, I’m not sure how to sum up my experience with this BKK VR Glasses & Dual Stim Controller Vibrator set. There are definitely issues both with the hardware and the software, the biggest one in my opinion being the lack of power in the vibrator, but it was still a fun experience and I think most of the problems I had were either personal to me or fixable.

It’s a 10/10 concept to me and I do hope at least some of the issues I’ve had will be fixed by the time this is released properly, but as it stands I’d probably rate this set a 6/10.
