Each week, The CSPH takes a look at a sexual aid that can be just so darn spectacular for some people, that it needs to be highlighted. This week’s sexual aid is Bsoft by Bswish!
How does the product work?
Designed for clitoral stimulation, the Bsoft by Bswish offers users a contoured, comfortably shaped vibrator to aid in playtime. Though compact at 4.7” by 2.2”, this toy features seven different speeds in a waterproof, aesthetically pleasing package. One side is narrower than the other, and the control buttons are placed on a gently rounded side, while the bottom is contoured for gripping. While the material of the toy is firm enough to offer stable pressure, its texture, combined with the contoured ridges on the underside, makes it comfortable to hold for extended periods of time, especially important if you’re taking the time to really romance yourself or your partner. Additionally, this toy is rechargeable, so there’s no need to worry about removing the batteries from the television remote or alarm clock to have some fun.
Featuring two buttons on its face—on/off and function—the Bsoft couldn’t be simpler to use. Ranging from a low, steady buzzing, to a variable reverberation, the seven different modes offer enough of a variety, so you shouldn’t have trouble finding the mode that feels oh so good. The buttons even light up in time with the vibrations, giving the toy an extra-stylish look while in use. While the toy is designed for use with the narrowest part on the clitoris, the fact that the vibrations can be felt throughout the toy means that it can be used in a variety of different ways: pressing the underside of the narrow part against the clitoris or pressing the curved side against the mons pubis, for instance.
Flipping the toy and pressing the underside of the narrow end against the clitoris, with the rest of the contoured side against the vulva for grinding, can also be quite exciting. Though this can produce a very pleasurable feeling, it somewhat dilutes the sensation produced by this toy since the vibrations are no longer localized.
Important Things to Note:
Included with the toy are its charger, a drawstring bag for storage, and generic instructions for Bswish products, though these do come in six languages. In spite of its small size, this toy is not the quietest—never mind the noises it causes you or your partner to make—so some music or white noise may be recommended if roommates, parents, or small children are around. Though the battery on this toy charges quickly—about two-and-a-half hours—it only lasts for about two, with the power noticeably diminishing as the battery runs low. However, be careful about overcharging this toy, and, when playing in the shower or cleaning the vibrator before or after use, ensure that the cap over the charging port is securely fastened.
The smooth, grippable texture is made of ABS plastic and silicone, though the toy is not entirely seamless, especially around the band and socket plug; however, the texture difference of the band is not noticeable during use. As for the socket cover, this is the main part that prevents this toy from being fully waterproof: if not securely fastened, water can get inside and possibly create issues when charging (water plus electricity equals bad).
Additionally, this toy is usable in partner play, and lube—water-based only, silicone lube will degrade the toy materials and seriously put a damper on sexytime—can change the sensations of this toy.
Keeping It Clean:
Though this toy should be cleaned prior to its first use, in addition to after each use, it couldn’t be simpler: just rinse with antibacterial soap and water and dry with a gentle cloth or via air-dry. Just be careful about the socket plug around water. This toy can easily be stored in the included bag, or displayed on a shelf as a modern art piece in case of inquisitive visitors.
Given its ergonomic shape and multiple functions, the Bsoft is an excellent addition to anyone’s toy chest, though those looking for a stronger, quieter toy may look elsewhere. If you’re looking for some comfortable, relaxing sensations to warm up to a stronger toy or enjoy a night alone or with your partner(s), definitely give the Bsoft some consideration.
