Welcome to the show...

This is my first sex toy review. I have purchased and used many toys of different varieties before so I'm not a stranger to using them by any means. I was excited to receive the Elite 7X Sensual Obsession Vibrator. I was also nervous because in exploring the toy, I was also taking mental notes so I would be able to write the review. Then I worried, "Oh my gosh, what if my review sucks?" Well, I'm not worried about that much now. It's one of those things that to me is subjective and I'm sure some will dig it and some will think they could have written it better. Such is life. It's my first one and I honestly haven't read more than 15 toy reviews before. In writing this, I felt a little blind but I did the best I could. I do have one request though. If you want to offer any tips, pointers or CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM then please, EMAIL ME (amorousrocker[at]gmail[dot]com) your words of wisdom. Onward....




The Elite 7X Sensual Obsession is a dual bulbous probe that is 5.5 inches in length. Generally, I like something longer and definitely wider than the super slim design but I wanted to give it a try anyway. Smaller sex toys can be just as fun as the larger ones, right? ;) The probe has a removable plug-in power jack that plugs into the power panel. One of the features is it's One Touch Activation with a button that also handily Glows in the dark. Just the press of a button and you're all ready to go. The glow in the dark button does glow. I switched out all the lights in the room just to make sure. It's fairly dim but you'll be able to see it if you're trying to. I had no trouble finding the button without even looking at it but I suppose the glowing button will come in handy for some.

It comes with a sleeve made of hygienically superior Silicone that has multiple little nubbies of goodness all over plus a clitoral tickler. The silicone sleeve is stretchy and I was really happy with how easy the sleeve was to get on to the probe. Some toys with sleeves are a pain in the ass (not in the fun way) because getting the sleeve on and off is like an annoying, frustrating chore all in itself. With this toy, the sleeve is easy to get on and easy to pull back off as well which for me is a plus.



It has seven different vibration settings starting from low, medium and high. Then comes surging, pulsating, escalating and super speed. I'm the kind of girl that likes a good strong vibration. I lubed up the toy and slid it in, starting on low. You know how some toys on their low settings are just an annoying buzz that barely registers as a vibration? This was a little better than that but not much. I got bored of that quickly and moved on to medium. Which still was better but I definitely needed more. I pressed the button again and it bumped up to high. That was better and I left it there for a few minutes. I was really enjoying myself and decided to calm down a little and try out the other settings. I had a feeling I wasn't going to like the surging vibrations and I was right. I haven't ever found a surging vibration I like because I don't like the second or two where nothing is happening at all. If I'm using a vibrating toy, I like to have constant vibration. I tried it out for about a minute and then moved on to the pulsating vibes. I would have enjoyed that more if the pulsating vibes were stronger ones but they're only so so and I got bored on that setting relatively quickly. I moved on to escalating. I like things with an escalating vibration setting. I do like constant vibration but I really like when there's a change in the vibrations even if it is only slight. I like the way it starts out slight and then builds up with the vibrations on that setting. It goes from a meek little vibe to a good strong one then starts over again. I used that setting for a bit and started building myself up for the orgasm. Once I had myself close, I pressed the button and went to the final setting, super speed. Going from escalating to "super speed" was a nice little jolt but I suspected their "super speed" wasn't much different than the high setting. I finished, cleaned up and then got busy writing this.

While writing, I got curious around here about the difference (if there was any) in the "super speed" and "high" settings. So I, wanting to give the best account possible, made the sacrifice to go back and play with the toy a little bit more. See? The things I do to give a good account. ;) I slid the sleeve back on, lubed it up and started on high. I used it a few minutes on high. Then pulled it out so the head touched only my outer lips while I switched it to "super speed" and then slid it back in. I was right, I couldn't tell much of a difference at all. Which was a little disappointing but not very much so since it's still got a good vibration to it.

I really liked the sensations of the vibrations coupled with the nubbies of goodness. I liked the nubbies on the sleeve because I love feeling texture as I play. A smooth, hard surface isn't bad but I really prefer some kind of texture so using the probe without the sleeve for vaginal play didn't really rock me too hard. With the sleeve on, I definitely enjoyed it. I will admit I didn't care much at all for the clitoral tickler. It was more annoying than anything else and didn't do much of anything at all for me. It's just kind of there and I honestly didn't remember it was even there unless it was on the highest setting. I did pull the toy out and use the head of it on and against my clitoris, playing with different vibrations against it. That was definitely more fun than the little tickler itself was.

All in all it's a pretty cool toy but I probably won't use it much for solo fun. I think it will be more fun to use with a partner and I'll be testing that theory later this week when I get to see Boyfriend again. Laying there, leaving the remote in my partner's hands, letting them work the toy on me as they see fit and changing the vibrations whenever they want to. Mmm fun. Thank you to TabuToys for letting me try this neat little toy out.
