Blush Novelties Sweet Rush & Sweet Bunny Classic Slim Vibe – Sex Toy Review
Happy Valentine’s Day! How are you celebrating? Are you celebrating?!? Frankly, I’m still trying to recover from Christmas… I don’t know how any of us can possibly be ready for another holiday so soon! I’m not a big Valentine’s person… I don’t mind the holiday or anything… in fact in theory, I love it… it’s just that it always sneaks up on me and I am NEVER prepared for it. I’m the kind of person who will buy you gas station chocolate (Milky Way or Kit Kats anyone?) on our way to some fancy-ass dinner you spent weeks planning (not because I’m cheap or anything… just because I forgot it was Valentine’s Day). I’m just bad at grand gestures of love… but I do appreciate them for sure! I’m really more of a day after Valentine’s Day discount chocolate shopper… and yes, of course I will totally share my discount chocolate with you, because I love you.
Now, even though I am bad at remembering the whole V-Day thing, I do love the whole Valentine’s Day vibe. Sugary sweets, cakes, cupcakes, hearts and adorable cartoony animals, everything in shades of pink and purple and of course all the love and sex stuff… OMG… I FUCKING LOVE IT. So OBVIOUSLY I was going to go absolutely gaga for the Blush Novelties Sweet Bunny Classic Slim Vibe and the Blush Novelties Sweet Rush Classic Slim Vibe! I mean… duh… they combine all of my favorite parts of Valentine’s Day… adorable pink things, sweets, and masturbating?! COUNT ME IN! I about DIED when I opened up a box from Peepshow Toy’s and saw these adorable vibrators staring back at me… I can not imagine two more adorably designed toys.
Body design-wise, the Sweet Bunny and Sweet Rush are nothing fancy. They are insanely simple, no-frills vibrators that do remind me an awful lot of some the cheap plastic vibes I bought when I was first exploring the whole idea of sex toys (and that I probably bought someplace horrid like a Spencer’s Gifts). But unlike those cheap plastic and oh so terribly weak vibes of yore, the Sweet Bunny and Sweet Rush Classic Slim Vibes actually feel like some thought and effort went into creating them and they aren’t just slap dash plastic jobbies thrown together to entice bachelorette party shoppers. These vibrators may be simple, but they are not at all cheap.
I gotta say though, I was super annoyed to rip into the packaging of the Sweet Bunny, ready to shove that sucker up my vagina and give myself the world’s most adorable orgasm, only to find out that this friggin’ thing needs batteries! Batteries which I, myself, must provide! What kind of person do you think I am?! Do I look like the kind of person who has their shit together and keeps packages of spare batteries tucked neatly in a drawer?! I MOST CERTAINLY AM NOT THAT PERSON! Okay, I knew from scoping this toy out earlier that it required two AA batteries… but I’ve just been so spoiled lately by battery powered toys that come already equipped with the necessary batteries that I just assumed that the Sweet Bunny and Sweet Rush would be the same. But no… as the packaging clearly states “batteries not included.” So, once I realized I needed to supply my own AA’s I began that all to familiar trek around my house looking for something that was also powered by AA’s that I could steal the batteries from… now my XBOX remote has no batteries, but at least my vibrator works! I’m sure all of you are better than me and have spare batteries tucked away for just such occasions… so this really isn’t a big deal.
The body of the Sweet Bunny and the Sweet Rush (and the Sweet Cream, which I do not own but is equally as cute as the two I do own) are all made from a velvety smooth matte ABS plastic with the little design characters feeling ever so slightly raised, almost as if they were stickers placed on the body of the toy (but no, you can not peel them off… I tried). The shaft of the toy (as the name implies) rather slim, with an insertable width of just one inch (just a bit wider then my weirdly fat thumb… I know you don’t know what my thumb looks like… but the one on my left hand is all fat and goofy, who knows why). Lengthwise it’s now slouch, it is 7 inches in total length with a solid 5.5 inches of insertable length (I guess you technically could go deeper… but then you are reaching the rough lip just above the cap and that seems like it could be scratchy and less fun). The shaft of the toy tapers off near the very end of the toy to a rounded tip at the top. The bottom of the toy features a red (or pink or blue, depending on your toy design) cap that controls the toys vibration and can be removed to replace the batteries. To remove the cap, simply twist it loose and it should spring free… and I really do mean spring… there is a spring right under the cap that kind of bounces the cap free when its loosened, I was not expecting such spring loaded action and lost control of my cap when I was putting batteries in the first time.
Operating the Sweet Rush and Sweet Bunny vibes is as simple as twisting a dial. According to the packaging, these vibrators are multi-speed, although how many speeds exactly I can’t really tell… they all kind of blend together to me. I have been sitting here very carefully and very slowly turning the dial trying to sort out at what point does the vibration change to something else… and I can kind of feel maybe a very subtle shift… it all feels more or less the same to me. To control these nearly imperceptible vibrations, use the rotating dial at the very bottom of the vibrators removable cap. turning it clockwise will turn the toy on and adjust the intensity (or so I’m lead to believe) while turning it counter clockwise will do the opposite and lower the intensity down until finally powering the toy off.
The vibrations are nothing to write home about. Sure, the quality of the vibrations were a bit better than I was expecting from such a simple, battery powered toy… but there was nothing that really wowed me either. But, I’ve got to say, for a budget toy powered by a pair of AA’s it was actually pretty nice. I was really expecting it to be clit numbingly buzzy or be so weak I couldn’t really tell if it was vibrating or not… so, I’m pretty happy with what I got. The vibrations are reasonably rumbly for a battery powered toy, even if they are somewhat shallow and mostly surface level. So, not a great toy for pushing against my clit… although… it’s not terrible either, I was able to push the rounded tip against my clit and get some mild pin-point style stimulation. It was nothing that was going to bring me to orgasm anytime soon… but it still felt alright. I really do seem to prefer using this toy internally and in tandem with another vibrator. I like thrusting with this and enjoying a little internal vibration while simultaneously using a more powerful vibrator on my clit… I like the little orgasm power boost I get from having those shallow rumbles going in inside me (occasionally bumping up into my G-Spot). And because it is so smooth and simple, it is an excellent vibrator for thrusting really quickly with… I like this as well. The third way I discovered I liked using this was to insert it alongside my partner penis… so like a one hole double penitration situation… it is just slender enough that I can (with enough lube) push it on in with his penis inside and enjoy some vibrating dick action. This toy is also good for teasing and tickling a partner’s (or your own) body… I was using it to tease my Stunt Cock’s balls and twirl around his nipples… he didn’t seem to object, so I think it was working for him! And I certainly didn’t mind having it run around my inner thighs and up and down my labia… not quite hitting my clit… (what a tease)! What a simple yet fairly versatile little toy!
I’ll admit it, these classic slim vibes are not the kind of toys I would probably ever use on their own, but like I said earlier, they are great to use in tandem with something else, or perhaps even as a toy to warm up with before moving on to the big guns. And it’s certainly a whole heck of a lot better than a lot of other battery powered cheapo vibes out there! Also, Sweet Bunny and Sweet Rush’s size does make both vibrators rather portable and good for travel, a toy that could very easily be packed into an overnight bag or suitcase (I would recommend removing batteries first though as the dial does seem to twist pretty freely). Another reason I think they are great for travel is the fact that they are so inexpensive… if the airlines lost your luggage or you accidentally left one in a hotel room or friends house… it isn’t a big deal… it would be far more devastating to lose a vibrator that cost you somewhere in the triple digits though! But at about $20 a pop… these are the perfect budget vibe.
If you are on the hunt for a super simple budget vibe that also happens to be super adorable, the Blush Novelties Sweet Rush and Sweet Bunny are exactly what you need! I think these vibes would be an excellent jumping off point for someone who may be new to vibes and isn’t exactly sure what it is they are looking for or what they may want out of a vibrator. Size-wise it is not at all overwhelming and in terms of power its not all that intense (but would still be more than adequate enough for someone who prefers mild to mid-level vibrations) and it’s not too intimidating in terms of packaging either (no naked people here!). All in all it is a very sweet collection of easy to use, easy to clean, and SUPER adorable vibes! I can definitely recommend (assuming you aren’t looking for a super powerhouse of a vibrator).
Okay, this needs to be said… so the Blush Novelties Sweet Rush and Sweet Bunny are both labeled as being “Limited Edition” but I’m not sure just how limited that means…. like… is there a set end date to these and they will all just self-destruct once that date is reached or is it just an only so many were made so once they are gone once they are all gone sort of situation? I don’t know… but if you think they are as cute as I do and you know that you are going to want one, you should probably grab one now (or if you are reading this sometime far in the future and they are all gone… I’ll sell you mine for $1000 each…).
