I have two versions of the Revel Body; the first and second version. The first version I received was quickly deemed obsolete and a second version came out soon after. The first version was extremely weak, and the instruction manual was ridiculous. It had 8 pages of warnings; such as “Don’t use on loose skin.” That one made me crack up to be honest. This warning is gone from the second versions instruction manual, thank goodness.

When I opened the package with the Revel Body, and saw that they included all of the attachments, I was eager to see how it would play out. All of the attachments are extremely different in shape. All of them are covered in pink, buttery smooth silicone, and all of them have extremely strong magnets in the bases. I was quick to take a Package of the Day picture, and get the Revel  Body on the charger. I wanted to see how this baseball vibrator worked.

revel vibrations

After I charged the Revel Body, I went through the cycles. They range from a thumping piston-like movement to standing still while humming. The Revel Body’s technology moves the magnet attachments up and down within the orb, this is caused by the linear motor (i.e. magnet motor). The range starts slow,  moving the attachment up and down the most. As you ascend the levels, the attachment moves faster, with less range. When you reach the highest level, movement is non-existent and it sounds like a hearing test. The levels of intensity are as follows: 1) Oh, look! It’s moving! 2) Still moving, and sounds like a boat motor. 3) It’s moving less but it’s faster. 4) Okay, that faster, but where did the motion go? 5) Is this going down in intensity? 6)Am I pressing the wrong button? 7) Is this thing even on? I hear it, but I’m not feeling it. Weird. 8-10) All I hear is the pitch of the motor going up, and the attachment isn’t even moving anymore. What the hell?

First off, I don’t like it, care for it, have interest in using it again after this review, and you won’t hear me suggesting it. I’ve had the Revel Body for quite awhile now, and during that time I’ve found that the Revel Body just doesn’t work for my body. Every time I’ve used it, I have used all of the attachments, with all of the speeds, with lube, without lube (there are no patterns). Every time, I am left with nothing. I’ve tried using it lightly on my clit (as suggested), I’ve used pressure. Nothing. Don’t get me wrong, the vibrations definitely vary between thumping to non-existent, but that’s about it. The website says to hold the Revel Body lightly against the skin. Um, why would I want a toy that can’t hold up its movement under the pressure of its own weight? I used no pressure, just the weight of the Revel Body, and that took a lot of the sensation away. Holding it away from my clit, left me feeling nothing as well. Like I said, I’ve used all of the attachments, and still nothing. I did, however, figure out that the attachments will make great magnets on my fridge.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThe first attachment comes standard with the Revel Body, it’s called the “Rose”. Its shape reminds me of a powder puff, only super small. Its silicone is buttery soft, but has very little give to it. When in use, this attachment does nothing for me. It’s too broad, and to be honest, in the beginning I was worried about bits of flesh being caught with in the Revel Body (remember the warning from the first version?). Once I got over this fear, I was left waiting. Come on, sensations! Any time now! The only response I got was a motor boat sound coming from my vulva.

ConaThe second attachment available is the “Cona”. The Cona’s silicone is the same buttery soft silicone that covers all of the attachments, only it’s softer. Not in texture but in design. The Cona is shaped like a cylinder, and is quite pliable. However, in use this does softly pinpoint the sensations. As I’ve stated before the sensations are lacking, so it doesn’t do much to help. All it does is pin point the thump or hum, depending on which setting you have it on. This attachment isn’t very easy to clean, but it isn’t impossible. I found a fingernail works alright, as well as a strong stream of water. Also, it takes a long time to dry, as the water sits within it.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThe third attachment is the “Ever”. It’s a strange shape; it looks like a smooth water’s surface when a single drop of water falls upon it. It looks like a nice attachment, but it again does nothing. You can feel a difference from the Rose attachment, but does not translate into an orgasm.

FawnThe fourth attachment is the “Fawn”. It looks like a rubber, dog hair removing, lint brush to me. That’s how it feels too. The silicone isn’t soft enough and feels as though I”m getting jabbed. On the highest settings it’s still uncomfortable. Also, this attachment is extremely hard to clean. Every time I think that I’ve cleaned it thoroughly, I always end up seeing that tell tale white within the bristles.

NikoThe last attachment is the “Niko”. Honestly, I don’t know how I would describe how it looks, I think the picture is the only way. The Niko is a toss up when it comes to stimulation. It either feels like someone trying ram your clit with their tongue, or it’s like you’re poking your clit with your finger tip (on the highest settings). If that’s your thing, that’s great. It isn’t mine.

I’ve tried all of these attachments with lube, without lube, out of water, in the water. The Revel Body doesn’t work for me. With most toys, I’m able to weasel an orgasm out of it. Not with the Revel Body. I spent most of my time searching for anything resembling an arousing feeling. The whole toy, with all of the attachments, left me frustrated and bored.

do like the quality of everything that True Sonic Tech sent me. The packaging is exquisite (the way that the attachments look like display items), the boxes are strong, sturdy and nicely done. The quality of the toy and attachments are nicely done. Even though I think they are a waste of time and money, the quality is top-notch.

Revel travel collage

The Travel Bag and charger is in a class all of its own. I have yet to see another company put as much time and effort into storage for a sex toy. The bag is made with strong material (think backpack) and with a strong zipper. The bag is the perfect size for the toy, with a breathing hole at the bottom (I’m not kidding). Also, there is a drawstring portion within the top half of the bag. Here is where you would store the travel charging cord and USB wall charger cube. The travel charging cord is made from study wire with strong fabric around it. I honestly think that this is the best charging cord I’ve seen yet. The USB cube is a standard wall charger that is included with the toy. So, I have three of them now (I love them; so handy).  I seriously wish that other toy companies would take a page out of True Sonic Tech’s book in regards to the quality of the storage and travel cord.

So, overall, I would say, save your money and buy something else. I would recommend the Mona 2 or a We-Vibe Touch. The Revel Body isn’t a toy I would take a risk on, since it is $130 and that’s just the toy with the Rose attachment. Every other attachment is $19. The Travel Bag is just under $30. As I said in the video, you’ll find that if you buy everything Revel, you will find that you have bought the most expensive USB wall charger you’ll ever get.

Thank you SheVibe and True Sonic Technology for sending me the Revel Body with all of the attachments and Travel Bag, in exchange for my fair and honest review.
