The Pulse is a basic and straightforward clitoral and external stimulator with no additional attachments, unlike the Tri-Phoria, and fewer settings. It is made of the same light purple hard plastic with a dark purple silicone tip. The tip of the Pulse is very much like that of the Tri-Phoria, in the respect that it also has a series of shallow rings around the very top that are meant to provide the added sensation of texture. That is, if you are a particularly sensitive person and can feel the very subtle texture. I cannot, so these rings added nothing to my personal experience.
Included with the Pulse is one AA battery that is inserted by twisting the plastic portion of the massager, which works as the battery cap, counterclockwise. The battery cap will dislodge and you can place the battery + side first into the massager. To reattach, line up the line on the battery cap with the thick line on the end of the massager, and turn clockwise until you feel it twist into place. Within the battery cap is a waterproof seal, so it is important to always keep it securely tightened so no water can seep in and end up ruining your toy.
On the very bottom of the massager’s plastic handle is a single power button. This serves as the only way to control the settings, of which there are 6 total–3 speeds of normal vibration and 3 pulse patterns. This worked fine for me considering it was at its highest speed of vibration nearly the entire time I used it, but I can imagine it becoming a nuisance for someone who wants to switch back and forth between two settings only to have to cycle through them all every single time.
I know that the Pulse Intimate Massager only takes one AA battery, which should have told me right off the bat that the intensity of the vibrations were not going to be stellar, but I was still really disappointed. I think I was especially frustrated with it because the Tri-Phoria also takes one AA battery, and I swear the vibrations were more intense than what could be felt with the Pulse. My best guess is that the intensity of vibrations all depends on the tip they are being transmitted to.
Overall, the Pulse was an unfortunate letdown. The weak vibrations and overall plainness of its sensations bored me in seemingly no time at all, leaving me frustrated and wondering what I should do next. The only way I can imagine someone being thrilled with this product is if it were that person’s very first vibrator, which could very well be the mindset of Trojan Vibrations when it comes to this product. It is, after all, the least expensive and simplest toy in their product line.
As with any other sex toy, thoroughly clean the Pulse Intimate Massager after every single use by running it under warm water and using all-natural soap or toy cleaner. Clean the silicone tip, being sure to get into all of the textured rings that are at the top of the massager, as well as the hard plastic handle, and dry completely before placing it into the discreet black satin pouch that is included.
The Pulse Intimate Massager is $29.99 and you can purchase it on the Trojan Vibrations website.
