Regular readers of my reviews will know that I’ve recently reviewed two of the new CalExotics Mini Marvels clitoral massagers for Betty’s Toy Box. So far, the Marvelous Teaser was an absolute hit, whilst the Marvelous Bunny was not so much of a success. So how would the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover fare?
The first thing that deserves a mention in any Mini Marvels review is the packaging. CalExotics have come up with a super cute retro Pop Art style for the Mini Marvel boxes. The gorgeous illustrations of the girls are a bit of me and I’ve kept all my Mini Marvel packaging. They’re sturdy enough to use for long term storage and far too pretty to throw away.
Manta Ray Shape
Opening the box the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover intrigues me. On immediate sight I’m not sure how I’m meant to use it. The CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover is an unusual shape, a long shaft leads to a manta ray shaped end with a narrow pointed tip.
The CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover is made of hot pink silicone. The colour is vibrant and eye catching, and the silicone is very matt and quite soft. There is a lot of grab to the silicone and it creates plenty of friction when it’s rubbed against my skin.
Inspecting the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover closer I realised the controls are on the manta ray end of the toy. I assume this must be the handle and this does slightly confuse me. The underneath of the manta ray looks like it could be quite good for clitoral stimulation.
The controls are made up of two buttons. Pressing and holding the bottom button wakes the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover up and the top button scrolls through the various settings. The CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover has ten settings to offer.
Three of these are steady constant vibration in varying intensity and seven are pulse patterns. The vibrations are decent, they aren’t the strongest vibrations, but they have a nice low rumble to them. They feel considerably stronger than the Marvelous Bunny and more akin to the Marvelous Teaser.
The shaft of the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover is flexible. It can be bent back and forth and angled in different ways. The neck of the shaft starts out very slim but gets thicker as it progresses up the shaft. The widest part of the shaft is 3.25 inches. The entire length of the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover is 7 inches with the shaft making up 4 inches of this.
I don’t feel like the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover is really large enough in the shaft to be mainly for internal use. However, the ability to angle and move the shaft does mean I can use it to stimulate my G Spot. The vibrations feel great inside me, but I find myself wishing for a little more girth and length.
For me the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover comes into its own as a clitoral stimulator. The long narrow shaft slides alongside my clit nicely. Deep rumbly vibrations teasing and tempting me with a very direct delivery.
I also found I could flip the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover over and use the underneath of the handle similarly. Holding the long shaft and pressing the manta ray shape against my clit. The vibrations are not quite as strong this way around, but they still feel great. I found climaxing with the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover very easy. The shape and vibration just seem to work well with me.
A Marvellous All-Rounder
For me the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover is a marvel indeed. There are so many ways to use it. The double ended design makes it great for teasing during foreplay. The shaped underside would be great to tease the perineum, frenulum or anus. In fact I’ve decided the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover is a fabulous all-rounder.
Despite my personal preference on the size of the shaft it can be used both internally and externally. It has good solid vibrations and much to my surprise I even enjoy some of the patterned settings. It can be used for stimulation on anyone, giving it a truly universal feel.
The CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover is rechargeable and comes with a USB charging cable. This plugs into the charge port which sits just below the buttons. This is a sealed port and the jack will need to be forced through the silicone. Don’t panic just give it a push and eventually you’ll hear a click as it slides home.
The sealed port makes the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover waterproof as well. This means the Marvelous Lover can be used in the bath or shower as well as making cleaning very easy.
Due to the grabby nature of the matt surface of the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover a slick of lube is advisable. Because the Marvelous Lover is made of silicone you’ll need to be careful to only use water-based with it. Anything else could potentially damage the surface of the Marvelous Lover.
I can’t really find any negatives to using the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover. It’s cute, quiet and it works. I love the multi-use design and the universal applications. It’s a very clever design, just like with the Mini Marvel Marvelous Teaser.
Thank you so much to the fabulous team at Bettys Toy Box for sending me the CalExotics Mini Marvels Marvelous Lover to review. I was sent this item free of charge and in exchange for an honest and impartial review.
