B-Vibe Rimming Plug 2 Review

Being an enterprising sex toy reviewer, I took it upon myself to attend the NYC Sex Expo a few weeks ago to see what new and exciting products were on offer. As I passed B-Vibe’s booth, the reps manning it waved me over to sell me on what set their toys apart. I tried to stay skeptical, but once of them handed me the B-Vibe Rimming Plug 2 it looked like my mark had found me.

“No other butt plugs on the market do this,” she said as she clicked a remote. and immediately the butt plug in my hand roared to life. The surface of the plug’s neck started rippling as the “rimming” beads started rotating while the tip of the plug buzzed away like crazy. It’s true, I hadn’t seen anything like it before, and before I knew what was happening she was giving me my receipt. Well done, B-Vibe rep.

I never did have it in myself to resist the prospect of fun new sensations, and the idea of a butt plug that “rims” had me practically running home to test it.

First Impressions

B-Vibe Rimming Plug 2

The B-Vibe Rimming Plug 2 seeks to improve on the original by adding more settings, with 7 rotating/vibrating patterns and 6 rotating/vibrating intensities. On the highest settings, it was pretty intense. The vibrations and rotations can be controlled separately, i.e. you can choose to have the rotating beads going but leave the vibrator off or vice versa.

The plug itself is made with a very nice-to-the-touch silky silicone, and it absolutely looks and feels luxurious. The remote is very sleek, fit comfortably in the palm my hand, and boasted a range of 30 feet. That does give this toy some fun potential for couples play if you hand the remote over to a partner.

Another thing I liked about this toy was the design of the packaging, although I stupidly forgot to take pictures. It featured straight, gay, and lesbian couples, which I found to be nicely inclusive and also showcases the fact that this toy works for anyone with a butt. #allbuttsmatter

In my excitement over this toy and my eagerness to buy it and dash home, I’ll admit i initially overlooked just how large it is. The B-Vibe Rimming Plug 2 has 5 inches of insertable length, a 3.5 inch circumference for the stem, and a 5 inch circumference at its thickest point. As a seasoned ass explorer, this toy didn’t pose too much of a challenge to me. However, I’m not sure I would recommend this toy to anyone not in the intermediate/advanced range of butt play.

It would be nice if they could get it smaller, but I suppose that’s the price of having rotating beads in the stem and a vibrating motor at the tip.

The charger is pretty convenient. The base and the charger connect magnetically, and I was pretty satisfied with the security of the connection. The lack of an open port also helps bolster their claim of splash resistance (although it’s not submersible so don’t put it in the sink!).

It takes the toy about 2 hours to charge from 0-100%, and from there you get about 1.5 hours of fun time. In my experience (and enthusiastic testing) I found that to be accurate.

As a final point, I’m a big fan of the storage/travel case. It’s as discreet as it is sturdy, and something that I wouldn’t feel bad at all about traveling with. Sometimes the biggest dilemma with your toys is how to store them, and I appreciate that the team at B-Vibe thought that out really well.

In Use

With the unboxing and testing phase out of the way, I was stoked to warm up and give my butt some action! Sadly for my impatient self, my ass is a bit of a princess and it took me about 10 minutes of warm-up before I could actually slip the toy in. There isn’t a huge amount of difference in thickness from the plug to the neck, so it can be a little hard to determine when it’s all the way in until you hit the base.

Being on the larger side of the toy spectrum, the initial feeling is of a really nice fullness. After giving myself some time to get accustomed, I finally started playing around with the remote. (Also, important to note that you need to tap the power button on the base of the plug to put it in standby mode for remote control. I did this before putting it in.)

I started, of course, with the “rimming” beads. As the B-Vibe Rimming Plug 2’s signature gimmick, I had to see how it compared to the real thing.

Once the beads in the stem started their rotation, it started off as a light tickling sensation. From there I scrolled through the settings, basking in the feelings as I ratcheted up the intensity. Now, I’m not exactly sure that I would call the sensation one of “rimming”. It felt great to me, but it was more of a marbles-massaging-my-butthole than something comparable to what a human tongue can do. The marbles were very subtle and gentle, and despite not quite being “rimming” I  found them to be a very enjoyable and pleasurable, if separate, sensation. I suppose it would be hard to exactly put a label on the feeling and “rimming” was the closest they could get, so I’ll give them a pass on that. Overall I was a fan of it, and it was unlike what any butt plug I’ve tried before had to give.

Next, I went for the vibrations in the tip to try them in conjunction. This was super fun, because my brain just didn’t know how to interpret the sensations with so much going on. The tip was buzzing away happily on my prostate, the beads were gently massaging my anus, and I was just trying to keep up with it all. The vibrations settings ran the full gambit, and I was happy with how strong they were at the max setting. I wound up cumming pretty quickly the first time I used it from the intensity of the stimulation, and had to use it a few times to explore the full range of settings.

As far as cons, I  have to say that the B-Vibe Rimming Plug 2 is not really as quiet as it is advertised to be. For anyone who’s looking for a remote controlled toy to use in public, this is not your pick. It’s not extremely loud, but someone in the next room would probably hear you unless you’re muffling it under a bunch of covers. Secondly, this toy is only “splash-proof” and not fully submersible, so although they say it’s shower-safe I’m not sure I would trust them on that. I try to be careful when cleaning it to make sure I’m not getting too much water on it, which can be a bit of a hassle.

Verdict

8.5/10 – Link to Product

I dinged the B-Vibe Rimming Plug 2 a bit for advertising itself as “whisper quiet” when it’s really not, but otherwise I found this to be a great quality toy. The quality of the make, the packaging, and the ingenuity of it really stuck with me, and I’ve been using it quite often in the month that I’ve had it. I always thought it was unfair that rotating bead technology seems to mainly be in women’s toys, and I commend the team at B-Vibe for upping the ante in the butt plug market and creating a product that truly offers something new.
