The Candy Stick is awesome. I think the reason why these reviews are coming months apart is because every time I began to write this review, I thought, ‘Well, I should try it again, you know, just in case I missed something!’ I didn’t exactly need to make sure I knew everything about the Candy Stick in order to write about it as much as I just wanted to keep using it. And boy oh boy have I used it!
So let’s talk about the technical specs of this vibrator. Just like the Turtle, the Candy Stick comes in the standard, super great and very pretty Papaya Toys packaging. It also includes a silk black pouch for safekeeping. It is 10 inches in length, 6 1/2 inches insertable and is made of 100% medical grade silicone that is firm, very firm, in fact, but not so hard that it’s going to feel like it’s going to injure you in any way.
The Candy Stick is completely body safe, created and manufactured with people’s high expectations of their sex toys and health in mind, which is something we can all get behind. This vibrator, as you can see, contains a whole lot of texture; it has very distinct swirls along its entire insertable length and while I have not been very receptive to subtle texture in other toys, I could feel the swirls of the Candy Stick and just for the record, it feels amazing.
The Candy Stick takes two AA batteries that are inserted by twisting the bottom of the vibrator off, which is located right above the ring of purple you see at the base in the picture above. It has a removable battery compartment that you take out, put the batteries inside, put the compartment back inside the base of the vibrator and twist it back on, all of which is super easy to do. The controls are located at the very bottom of the base of the vibrator that are triggered by pushing the two soft buttons. This vibrator has three different pulsation variations, one is a straight-forward constant vibration, another is a steady pulsation and the last is a sorta-kinda random pulsation, but it does loop after a little bit. Each vibration can be increased and decreased in intensity by a push of the buttons. When you turn the Candy Stick off and then on again, it remembers what vibration setting you were last on and it also remembers the intensity of the vibration you last had it on. This vibrator is also completely waterproof and can be fully submerged in water; when submerged, it does not lose intensity at all and works just as well as it does out of the water.
I wouldn’t say that the Candy Stick is great for beginners, it’s probably not, given the amount of girth it has and the amount of texture, both of which made it more comfortable for me to use a good amount of lube with it (only water-based, silicone-based lube can ruin silicone toys and ruining Papaya Toys vibrators would be a damn tragedy) but if you’re just a bit experienced with sex toys, you should definitely pick it up. It has a $70 price tag, which isn’t a hefty amount of money to pay in the least when compared to other toys that don’t work and feel as terrific as this being sold for much more, not to mention it’s made of body-safe silicone and by a company that cares immensely about their customers and about the quality of products they put out.
