I’ve reviewed a few remote control Nu Sensuelle vibes for the fab folks at Latex Leather and Lace, and have loved them. This time it’s the turn of butt stuff. The Nu Sensuelle Remote Control Mini Butt Plug has left me wanting. I often find these are the hardest reviews to write so please forgive me if this one becomes a bit rambling.
The Nu Sensuelle Remote Control Mini Butt Plug is 4 inches in length with approx. 3.5 of this insertable. It’s a nice little size, especially for someone who is particularly sensitive anally. Don’t forget when buying anal toys things feel larger in the butt than the hand. At the widest part the girth is around 3.5 inches.
The shape of the Nu Sensuelle Remote Control Mini Butt Plug gives me cause for concern straight away. There is no defined bulb or neck to the Nu Sensuelle Remote Control Mini Butt Plug. The shaft gently tapers to a subtle point. In shape it reminds me more of a bullet than a plug. In my experience I’ve found this type of plug is very difficult to retain inside me.
The base of a butt plug is the first thing I look at when considering purchasing it. Anal toys can travel inside you easily if they aren’t anchored properly. A good wide, sturdy base prevents this. A good rule of thumb is the base should always be the widest part of the toy. The base on the Nu Sensuelle Remote Control Mini Butt Plug is definitely more than ample to prevent travelling. Its oval shape sits between your cheeks comfortably.
Soft, Flexible Silicone
The base is flexible, made of soft silicone. This prevents cutting in, which given the size of my bum can be a problem with glass or metal plugs. When choosing butt plugs material is very important. You really must make sure you have a plug which is non-porous. Silicone is fantastic for this as not only is it totally body safe and non-toxic, it’s non-porous and also soft.
The silicone is ridiculously silky and soft. It feels super tactile against my skin and I love this. Some silicones can be sticky and grabby but this isn’t at all like that. It doesn’t attract lint or hair and only requires a little lube to slide inside me.
The Nu Sensuelle Remote Control Mini Butt Plug is a vibrating plug and the button to switch it on is on the outer side of the base. When you press this button, nothing will happen. This is because the Nu Sensuelle Remote Control Mini Butt Plug is controlled remotely. One tip I can pass on is remember to switch it on before insertion. Groping around with lubey fingers afterwards is no easy task.
The little palm size remote is super easy to use. Press the + button and the plug bursts into life. There are four levels of intensity and quite a marked difference between one and four. The vibration is powerful but quite buzzy. You can move between intensities using the +/- buttons easily. Between these sits the mode button which controls a whopping 15 patterned settings. There is something for everyone here from gentle waving patterns to harsh staccato ones.
Both the remote and plug are rechargeable, this is novel and unusual. Usually the remote is battery powered. I was pleasantly surprised to find the charging cable had a split charger, so you can charge both devices at once. Happy days!
I love remote control devices, it’s sexy AF to hand over control of your device to someone else and the scope for play increases massively. One of my favourite things about remote control play is the ability to take it outside the bedroom for some risky public fun. However, the noise of the Nu Sensuelle Remote Control Mini Butt Plug means I couldn’t do this. There is a very audible buzzing even from the remote. I’m not sure why the remote itself vibrates and buzzes. It’s not strong enough to use the remote as a separate vibe, to use on your clit for example. But it’s strong enough to give my hand an unpleasant tingle if I hold it for too long.
Talking of tingle, this was one thing I had huge problems with when using the Nu Sensuelle Remote Control Mini Butt Plug. Because the vibration is quite buzzy after wearing it for a little while it creates a tingling feeling which eventually becomes quite irritating. It made me feel itchy and quite uncomfortable. This is a shame as the actual plug is very comfy.
A Battle of Wills
When wearing the Nu Sensuelle Remote Control Mini Butt Plug I found the naturally tightening of my muscles as I approach orgasm force the plug completely out of me. In fact, even moving around is problematic as the plug just slides out with no bulb to hold it inside me. Add this to the vibrating which creates movement and it became almost daft.
The problem I have with the Nu Sensuelle Remote Control Mini Butt Plug is it has the ingredients of a great plug. It’s comfortable and I love the idea of the remote control and charging. There are a bunch of settings and its very easy to use. But there’s a lot of kinks to be ironed out (if you’ll pardon the pun) first.
Ironing Out the Kinks
I can’t get on with the shape and when I mentioned this on Twitter I had feedback from other reviewers saying the same. Years ago when I first started venturing into anal toys I bought a plug this shape and it was a disaster. I thought it was my body that was the problem at first. A plug needs a bulb, a neck and a base and this only has one of three.
The noise and buzzy vibration are a massive problem and I simply don’t understand why the remote buzzes. If these issues were dealt with then the Nu Sensuelle Remote Control Mini Butt Plug would be a winner. However, at the moment using the Nu Sensuelle Remote Control Mini Butt Plug becomes a battle of wills between me and the plug.
Thank you so much to the fabulous people at Latex Leather and Lace for sending me the Nu Sensuelle Remote Control Mini Butt Plug for review. I was sent this item free of charge and in exchange for an honest and impartial review.
