Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator Review

The Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator was kindly provided for review at carasutra.com, and as well as offering a few for the Pleasure Panel to review. Those reviews will be published here at the blog shortly, but in the meantime, let me share my thoughts and experiences of this unusual looking sex toy.

About The Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator

I didn’t ‘get’ the purpose of the Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator simply from the name, so I think it’s safe to assume there’ll be at least one other person out there thinking similarly. Let’s take a look at the official spiel.

Tickle Me Bits is designed for same sex and heterosexual couples to tickle, titillate & explore.

It is a unique modular and rechargeable adult toy designed to stimulate your body ready for the most ultimate sexual experience. The easy to use attachments are designed to reach places other toys can’t reach. Just use the tickle attachments and let it take you to new levels of excitement, insert for the ultimate pleasure.

They go on to explain that the Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator can be used to stimulate wherever you wish on your/their body; nipples, groin, vagina, “delicate areas” (I’m assuming this covers clitoris, vulva, any other sexual/erogenous parts of anatomy), anal entrance, penis tip/frenulum and inside the penis (urethral sounding).

Attachment Specs

The two attachments for the Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator are described as an anal probe (once firmly attached to the handle it’s safe for internal anal use) and a urethral dilator –although you can use either attachment however/wherever you wish.

The anal probe measures 4 inches in insertable length with a 2-inch circumference, while the urethral stim measures 5 inches in insertable length with a 2.72mm diameter shaft & 4.75mm diameter bulb.

The Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator is made with body-safe, non-porous silicone and is splashproof.

What You Get In The Box

Inside the pleasantly presented dark-coloured outer box, which is shrink-wrapped for hygiene reassurance, you get the Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator handle, the two attachments and a USB charging lead. There’s also an instruction leaflet.

Unfortunately, there’s no storage pouch included, but you can store the vibrator, attachments & lead in the box between uses.

Charging Up

It’s easy to charge up the Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator – just plug the jackpin end of the included lead into the dimple above the CE mark on the back of the vibrator handle (looks like you’re pushing through the silicone, don’t worry, this is correct). Then the other end into any USB port.

I usually use my USB to mains plug by the bed, or desktop computer -I understand this might not work for those who work in a shared office!

Operation & Settings

There are various vibration settings available from the Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator. Your choice of attachment screws into the area for it at the top of the handle, it’s pretty easy to figure out.

To turn it on you just need to press the convex button above the word ‘Tickle’ on the vibrator handle (it says ‘hold’ in the instructions but I found this to be incorrect, just press it normally), and it powers into life. To turn off, press and hold from any mode until the unit powers off.

Another error I found is that the box and ephemera says the Tickle Me Bits offers 7 vibration modes, but I’ve found 8:

  1. Low constant vibration
  2. Medium constant vibration
  3. High constant vibration
  4. Dot-dash pulse
  5. Dot-dot-dot pulse
  6. Dot-dot-dot dash-dash pulse
  7. Ascending vibration
  8. Dot-dot-dash pulse

You can turn off the vibrator from any mode. When you turn it on again it will begin again in the first mode, ie. low constant vibration.

During Use: On Myself

Previously, I read through and fought envy over a Pleasure Panel reviewer’s feedback on the Zumio Spiral Tip toy, which also has a very slim precision tip which uses the slender lightweight protrusion design to provide intense stimulation to a small area. When offered to review the Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator, I was instantly attracted. The precision tip, the versatility potential of two attachments… I was looking forward to living the precision clit stimulation dream.

What using the Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator has taught me, however, is that although precision clitoral stimulation sounds like it would be right up my alley –so to speak- I prefer a larger area coverage in order to actually reach climax without any frustration element.

For anal use however, I really enjoyed the Tickle Me Bits. It was a bit too slender for me, but for a butt play beginner it would have been excellent. That is, until the second time I came to use it anally, and it broke.

The metal part which was inside the bulbed anal probe, which has the external screw part to attach to the main vibrator handle, came away from the attachment. Once I’d finished using the toy anally I removed it from myself, but the attachment was still inside with the screw part still inside the handle in my hand. It had been firmly attached – as you can see by the fact that the screw bit was still in the toy. The weakness was in the part attaching the screw to the attachment rod. I (thankfully) managed to retrieve the anal part from myself quickly, and without too much difficulty (in spite of lube).

This experience left me unwilling to use the Tickle Me Bits for anal play ever again, despite the lovely sensations during use, whether on myself or on my partner. I deemed it too risky. Not that I could even if I wanted to, as the metal area has snapped off inside the silicone cover so won’t reattach inside anyway. Anal sex toys need to have a flared part to stop it being drawn up inside the body – if the attachment can be left inside like that, due to the screw area breaking from the attachment, then it’s not anal safe.

Using the Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator On Him

A highlight of our experiences with the Tickle Me Bits was using it as a urethral sounding toy. It was the perfect width and length to thrill him, aided by some water-based lube and slowly inserted into his penis. I’d used the toy around his frenulum first, and over his shaft and balls, to get him ready for the vibrating sensations. I find he is much more sensitive to vibrations than I am – I wonder why that might be (!)

Once inside, even the lowest vibration setting was extremely intense and caused him to jerk slightly until he relaxed into the feeling. I tried raising the intensity once he seemed pleasured by the sensation rather than overstimulated, but had to switch it off and on again to go back to the lowest setting as it was too much on even the second level.

For those with experience in urethral sounding and looking for intense penis stimulation internally, I think this would be a fantastic toy. The probe is suitably slender, rigid and has a small bulbed tip not only for comfort but to make the vibrations feel even more intense on the inside.

Summary

This review is a completely mixed bag, I’m afraid. It’s taken me longer than usual to collate my thoughts, because on the one hand I love the idea and reality of the Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator, on the other I feel it needs to go back to research and development stage before an upgraded, safer version is released for sale.

Tickle Me Bits Rechargeable Sensation Vibrator Review by Cara SutraWhen it comes to the stimulation offered, I guess the clue is in the name – Tickle. If you’re the type of person who loves a slow build up, a teasing touch, a light tickle of your erogenous zones and the light flutter of vibration on sexual areas – then the Tickle Me Bits might just be your perfect pleasure accessory. For external use, at least.

Sadly, there were too many let-downs with the Tickle Me Bits which keep me from a full recommendation in accordance with its suggested uses at this time. It has the potential to be an absolutely brilliant pleasure accessory offering people and couples multiple ways to thrill themselves and each other sexually.

However:

  • The finish needs to be higher quality –I can feel a seam down the slender, urethral sounding attachment which shouldn’t be felt, for example – and there needs to be no gap between the handle and the attachments when they’re in place, for safety and hygiene reasons.
  • It also needs to be fully waterproof, as a sex toy which is used internally –not only vaginally and inside the penis but also anally.
  • The information on the box and in the included leaflet needs to be 100% correct in terms of functions and operation details.
  • Further testing/changes are required so the toy is never in danger of coming apart during use and putting people at risk of having the probe left inside them anally – or in the penis, come to that.
  • I’d like to see a storage pouch included, although I realise this would hike up the end price and isn’t make or break for me personally.
