Perlesque Eris Vibrator Review

By Pleasure Panel reviewer BarginHunta

A silky soft silicone, rabbit eared, clitoral vibrator – What could be better for someone who loves clitoral stimulation?

When we were given the opportunity to review the Perlesque Eris Vibrator I was very excited. I did some research before it arrived and it looked like it had very good potential for me personally. I favour clitoral stimulation from the side, rather than directly, and this looked like it would be snuggling quite nicely into both sides simultaneously – heaven!

The Perlesque Eris Vibrator is packaged in a very discreet grey cardboard box. The only markings on the box are in a delicate silver-pink and consist of the Perlesque logo on the lid, and the name, slogan, and product name on the side; free from product images and suggestive illustrations, just pure understated class.

Inside the box there is a soft grey material bag with a pink-silver Perlesque logo on, a simple grey fold card, and the Perlesque Eris Vibrator herself nestled into a soft foam insert. Alongside Eris I found an intriguing white envelope and the USB charging cable tucked away neatly underneath.

Opening the envelope reveals a folded product brochure which shows the current Perlesque product range. I think it was probably intended to be an instruction leaflet, but as the ‘instructions’ amount to a single page and provide only the briefest of information I think classing it as a ‘brochure’ is more apt.

The Perlesque Eris Vibrator is a nice sized vibrator, shaped like a chicken egg with a pair of cone shaped ears at the top. The silicone coating gives the whole thing a lovely silky soft surface texture, but Eris is definitely a vibrator of two halves; the upper half (with the ears) feels like a very soft and quite thick silicone layer, almost to the extent that it has an element of ‘squish’ to it, whereas the bottom half is considerably more rigid, feeling like a thin layer of silicone over a firmer plastic substrate. Of slight concern is the join around the circumference, which is a reasonably wide gap that looks like it could become a dirt trap, even allowing for the fact that Eris is stated as being fully waterproof.

One of the great features of the Perlesque Eris Vibrator is that it is USB rechargeable. As with most rechargeable toys these days you do not get an actual charger, but rather an adaptor cable to go from the Eris to a standard USB connection, so ensure you have a USB charger available!

As most toys recommend that they are fully charged before use, and the lack of instruction specifically for the Perlesque Eris Vibrator, I decided the first thing to do would be to charge the Perlesque Eris Vibrator.

This is where I hit my first problem; the Perlesque Eris Vibrator has what can only be presumed to be a charging port on one side, but as to how it should be used is anyone’s guess (again, some instruction here would have been useful!)

The port itself appears to be constructed of a piece of silicone that is separate from that half of the body,  but it is unclear as to whether this is a cover that should be removed, a hole that hadn’t been cut properly, or something else. This really seemed like the early days of sexual exploration… There was a hard rod, and a soft round hole, but what to do? Did it require any prep work, do you just push it in and hope for the best, if so what angle, how hard?

In the end I resorted to the internet for answers, and it turns out that despite how it looks, the jack actually just pushes through the centre of the hole. At first I found the jack snagged on the silicone material so natural instinct took over… with the jack and hole given a thin coating of lubricant I tried again, pushing gently forwards, and with a slight pop suddenly it was in! Eris began to throb with a warm red glow inside, at which point I left her for the night.

In the morning the Perlesque Eris Vibrator was still pulsating… the battery must have been really low…

That night the Perlesque Eris Vibrator was STILL pulsating… I can only conclude that the red pulsating light indicates that Eris is receiving power from the charger, and does not indicate the charge state at all.

Removing the jack from the Perlesque Eris Vibrator the charging hole seems to just ‘heal’ back to seal the toy once more.

So what does the Perlesque Eris Vibrator feel like?

The vibrations of Eris have 7 different settings; a low, medium and high constant vibration, an oscillating pattern, a pulsating pattern, a fast pulse pattern, and a short-short-long pulse pattern. All of these vibrations feel very intense, but unfortunately the place that I felt the vibrations the strongest were in my hand holding ERIS. This is compounded by the fact that as there are no features or non-slip areas on the the Perlesque Eris Vibrator base it is necessary to hold onto it quite firmly as the whole thing gets slippery once lubricant is involved. Unfortunately I personally found that these vibrations in my hand very quickly gave my hand and arm a numb feeling, forcing me to have to swap back-and-forth between hands so as to maintain some feeling in my hands.

But what about the business end?

There is no other way to say it, this was disappointing for me. I had hoped that these ears would feel amazing nestled either side of my clitoris, but this positioning just wasn’t possible. Due to the fact that the ears of the Perlesque Eris Vibrator actually angle slightly AWAY from each other, there is no way to position it to stimulate both sides of my clitoris at the same time. Trying to do so just resulted in neither ear making much contact at all. To get anything from it I found myself having to angle one ear or the other onto my clitoris and ignoring the other. I can’t help but feel that this defies the point of an ‘eared’ toy, as I was now using it more like a silicone bullet vibrator. Except this was a lot louder than any bullet I’ve used, and was difficult to hold with the increasing numbness that was creeping up through my wrist. In the end, when I felt I had given the Perlesque Eris Vibrator the best opportunity to impress me that I could, I resorted to putting it to one side and reaching for my trusty bullet instead.

Overall rating 4/10
