From CalExotic Novelties
This Gyrating Thumper was sent to me for review as this months Sexpert review from CalExotics.
I was hoping it was going to be as thumpy as its name.
The packaging arrived in the CalExotics glossy cardboard box, showing the product clearly and brightly on the front, no hiding this little beauty away. It is then sealed in a clear transparent plastic bag for hygiene reasons.
This little waterproof compact vibrator is made of solid ABS plastic with satin touch PU coat, it actually feels like a smooth silicone. It has 2 ripples leading to a small rounded head.
The 2 undulations are quite extreme and the head is beautifully smooth and rounded, perfect for pinpoint stimulation. The Gyrating thumper does not flex at all meaning you can add as much pressure as you wish.
A silver plated ring at the base, adds a more luxury look to the toy.
Full length is 4.9 inches long.
Insertable length is 3.75 inches long,
1.5 inches in diameter at its widest,
The head is exactly an inch in diameter.
Weight is 3.4oz or 0.1kg.
This little massager is powered by 2 AAA batteries which sit within a solid battery holder, this prevents any rattling noises and gives the toy a really solid feel.
Solid battery compartment with a bayonet screwtop cap with a white opaque rubber ring seal to make it waterproof.
This small vibrator with 3 increasing speeds is controlled by a small clear rubber button on its base. I did initially feel this was going to light up being a transparent rubber, found on some LED buttons, but it doesn't..ho hum.
I have to say I'm really impressed by this little toys vibrations, the name is Gyrating thumper so I was sort of expecting it to give a thump or thrust...well for such a small clit toy this little toy has some kick. I cant say that it gyrates it doesn't, but it does have a heavier motor inside and you can feel it give quite a deep resonance and really rumbly vibrations compared to most buzzy toys of this size. To turn off you simply scroll through the 3 speeds.
I must admit as it has this unusual thump to it I would have loved a pulse and escalation pattern as I feel this would have brought out the thump feel more.
Super Sound Sleuth
As you know by now I take actual decibel readings on all my vibratory toys, so you can see an actual physical measurement of sound, no guessing what I mean or my personal preference its a hard reading of its actual sound levels.
I take all my decibel readings in my spare room of my 500 year old cottage as the walls are over a foot thick and its got a real silence to the room, perfect as a sound room or dungeon...! ;-)
I then take the decibel reading exactly 6 inches from every toy. I also take the reading of the room itself to have a baseline.
Measurements for the Mini Gyrating Thumper

Its really discreet and the vibes cannot be heard through a door or wall even on full speed. Its beautifully discreet.
Here is a basic chart to help you see my readings a bit easier.
UseWhen I first got it out the box I found the satin feel PU coat feels beautifully silky smooth and warms quickly to your skin. It also has a gorgeous luxury weighty feel to it and it sits comfortably in the palm of your hand making it easy to control.
I loved the bright almost luminous orange colour; its a nice change to the standard colours available, but you can also get it in your favourite purple and pink too. I've never been a lover of small toys but this one I've grown quite fond of.
For me I enjoyed the firmness and inflexibility meaning I could add alot of pressure on my clit and other areas, this feels amazing.
TIP: I also found it lays perfectly between your labia enabling you to wear it in your knickers for a little while and grind a bit onto it, obviously not ideal to go out or walk around the supermarket but a great size and shape for some panty play while relaxing.
This gyrations thumper is the perfect shape for anal play but I would suggest only using the small head to tease and dip into the anus; not to fully insert as its doesn't have a flared base and with lots of waterbased lube and fluids, it gets extremely slippy and could easily slip right up inside if you are not careful. I'm sure you will not want a trip to A&E with a bright orange vibe up your butt or maybe you do who am I to judge ;)
Cleaning and Maintenance
This little vibe cleans easily under warm running water and perfect to rinse in the bath or shower, being so smooth its easy to maintain. The PU coat is so smooth and hardly collects any dust like silicone toys and is a joy to clean. Simply spray with a good sextoy cleaner, allow to dry and store in a make-up bag or toy bag to prevent scratches and keep it away from other silicone toys.
Available in 3 gorgeous colours.
Im really impressed with this luxury feel vibe its not the strongest vibe I have but its not the weakest either and its most certainly up there with my stronger battery toys. The rounded head is perfect for all sorts of foreplay and any pinpoint stimulation.
It feels so different to most small toys out there with its thumpy rumbliness; I'm sure this will suit most people. Its not gyrating as the name suggests but its certainly unusual. Its perfect as a beginners toy and also fun addition for the advance toy user too, even if its just for its fun colours, let alone its unique feel vibes. Its an affordable fun vibe to add to any toybox.
Batteries last well,
I would have loved a few patterns to give more "thump" as in its name.

All my thanks goes to the lovely girls at CalExotic Novelties for sending me this gorgeous toy for this review!
