We have all heard of Trojan before, but instead of thinking strictly condoms, the brand’s product line has grown in recent years, allowing them to become a name associated with sexual satisfaction in addition to safe sex. Not long ago I heard about the release of the Trojan Vibrations Tri-Phoria Intimate Massager. It created a lot of buzz and I was understandably interested in checking it out, given the fact that the product was from a brand that has long had a stellar reputation. So I was pretty thrilled to receive the opportunity to work with Trojan Vibrations on not just a review of the Tri-Phoria, but also their two other intimate massagers, as well as the chance to give away a package of all three of these products to one lucky Woman Tribune reader. Pretty awesome, right?
I will be reviewing each of the three products I received from Trojan Vibrations throughout the weekend with the giveaway event beginning Monday. But for now, let’s talk about the Tri-Phoria Intimate Massager, which I’m starting with because it is definitely the product I have been most excited about.
The Tri-Phoria Intimate Massager looks like a pretty straightforward clitoral and exterior stimulator, but the variety of settings and three interchangeable tips makes it quite versatile. The massager itself is light purple and made of hard plastic. The very top of the massager is white, and this is where you can easily change between the three tips provided.
When you first receive this massager, it is sporting a soft silicone domed tip. If you’re like me, this is where you will begin with the Tri-Phoria, having no interest in changing out the tips until you try out and subsequently become exhausted of the dome. This does not take long. The dome is fine. It is not awesome, nor is it horrible, it’s just fine; passable; good for a short amount of time. Along the entire tip are rings that are supposed to give the feeling of subtle texture, which may work wonders for some, less-sensitive people, but I don’t feel subtle texture; apparently my vulva requires texture that is more drastic in order to make a difference in what I am feeling.
By simply unscrewing the current tip counterclockwise, it will easily come off the massager. Choose another tip and turn it clockwise onto the top of the massager; you will want to make sure the tip is secure tightened before use. The second tip I tried was the hard stimulator tip, which is made of plastic and has a large nub surrounded by a raised ring and four smaller nubs. This tip is very much like that of a Pocket Rocket; in fact, I think I have a Pocket Rocket with this exact tip. Overall, I found this tip to be hard and at times uncomfortable. Admittedly, I can be a little rough with sex toys and with myself, but I am a big fan of pressure on and around my clitoris, so pushing down onto myself with the Tri-Phoria Intimate Massager with the hard plastic tip wasn’t the sensation I was looking for. If you’re the type of person who lets your sex toy do the work while you simply hold the massager up to yourself, you are likely to find this tip to be a lot more comfortable than I did.
The last tip is a “flickering” tip made of soft silicone; the same material as the dome tip. According to the product description, the flickering tip is supposed to be “tongue-like” with gentle focused stimulation. I assure you, it feels nothing like a tongue. In fact, through my mildly extensive research throughout the past few years, I feel confident in saying that when a sex toy’s product description claims that it feels like a tongue and you buy it based on that description, you will be disappointed. The only way this tip will feel even mildly like a tongue is if you have just finished watching something like The Client List or very soft-core porn that requires you to use a whole lot of imagination in order to conjure up a semi-realistic erotic storyline in your head, slather the tip with lubricant (water-based only as the tip is made of silicone), close your eyes real tight, and forcefully “flick” the tip against yourself using mild pressure (because the tip does not do this wide flicking action on its own), and it is still not going to feel very tongue-like.
Even though it does not feel like a tongue, this tip still ranks my favorite. It’s soft enough that I can apply pressure without it becoming uncomfortable and it can deliver vibrations over a wide area when pressed up against my body on its side, or precise stimulation right where I want it when just the tip is against me.
At the circular base is the Trojan logo above dark purple plus and minus signs that control the speeds and patterns of vibration. The Tri-Phoria Intimate Massager has 8 settings–5 speeds of vibration and 3 pulse patterns of varying speeds. Every time a vibrator has a myriad of different settings I always feel like they are being wasted on me; I just don’t appreciate the variety. In my perfect sex toy world, everything that vibrates would have a simple on and off button and when I turned the toy on, it would just be a straightforward vibration sans any type of pulsing, and the vibration would be strong and make my toes curl on impact. However, that is just not the case, but the controls of the Tri-Phoria are incredibly easy. To turn the massager on, just press the + button one time and it will begin vibrating at the lowest level. To increase the speed of vibration, continue pressing the + button. After you cycle through the five speeds of simple vibration, there are three pulse patterns that follow. You can go back and forth through the settings at any time. To cycle back down through the settings just press the – button and continue pressing that button to turn it off.
Something that is so, incredibly appreciated is the fact that one AA battery is included with the Tri-Phoria Intimate Massager. It is frustrating to open a toy, be ready to put it to good use, only to find that you don’t have the right batteries on-hand and have to wait to use it until you can get to the nearest store. I hate it when that happens, especially when I do get to the store and then completely forget that I need batteries.
To insert the battery, twist the bottom of the base of the massager counterclockwise until the battery cap unscrews from the massager. Insert the battery and replace the cap by lining up the line on the battery cap with the thick line on the case. This takes a little bit of playing around with the first few times you replace the battery. I first tried doing this while not at my most patient, which didn’t work out very well. It’s best to really make sure you line up the parts of the cap with the case and to take your time. Between the battery cap and the case is a waterproof seal, which you will need to make sure is in place before tightening the battery cap. This ensures that the product’s waterproof seal is maintained and when you take it into the bathtub, shower, hot tub, pool, or what have you, the Tri-Phoria is completely waterproof and not at risk of being ruined by water.
Cleaning the Tri-Phoria Intimate Massager is simple. It is not dishwasher safe, so it is important to clean it after every single use by rinsing the interchangeable tips and massager with warm water and wiping them down with an all-natural soap or toy cleaner. Also included with this product is a black satin pouch that you can use to discreetly store your Tri-Phoria; just be sure that it is cleaned and completely dry before storing it.
The Tri-Phoria Intimate Massager is $39.99 and you can purchase it on the Trojan Vibrations website.
