AUTOSTRADDLE ANONYMOUS SEX TOY REVIEW #32:

It’s our 32nd Autostraddle Anonymous Sex Toy Review! Over the last few years, we’ve been propositioned frequently by sex toy companies wondering if we’d like to review their toy in exchange for, you know, their toys. In 2011, in addition to “saying yes to the dress” we started saying YES to the sex toys!

This week, one of our anonymous reviewers looked at the Nalone Touch

The Nalone Touch is a g-spot vibrator that, at first glance, looks pretty standard.

It has a USB charging cord and LED buttons. It has one pretty quiet motor. It’s waterproof. It’s made mostly of silicone with a panel that feels like metal. It only comes in pink. (Electric pink. The packaging is incredibly feminine — a soft pink textured box with a satiny lining — but the toy itself is the type of pink you need sunglasses for. The photo does not do it justice.)

It’s shaped with a wider curve at one end that I found good for external simulation, and a smaller, rounded curve at the other end that’s curved just enough to hit your g-spot.

In a market increasingly saturated with similar fare at different price points, what makes the Nalone Touch unique is a silver panel around the controls that changes patterns according to how you touch it. Rather than using pre-set patterns or even turning the toy on and off to change things up, you touch or hold the panel to make it run and stop touching to make it stop.

I really liked that making the vibrator start and stop could be so intuitive and easy, but was disappointed by the fact that the way I touched the panel didn’t affect the level of vibration – light and heavier touches resulted in the same sensation.

The Nalone Touch is similar to the Minna Ola, which lets you record patterns and plays them back to you indefinitely. Instead of having a squishy interface, the Touch sticks to buttons. It also lets you record patterns and play them back, unlike the Touch, which just lets you make your own as you go.

Otherwise, it has seven patterns of vibrations of varying intensities — pretty standard. The lowest is fairly gentle, and the highest is respectable, though not particularly intense. The buttons were sleek but, like they are on almost every vibrator I’ve ever used, difficult to find by touch alone, which make the different texture of the metal plate even better.

Like many vibrators that happen to be insertable (as opposed to vibrating dildos), I found the Nalone Touch very easy to use alone and a bit awkward to use with and on a partner. The grip felt distinctly backwards, and the buttons sensitive enough that I accidentally turned the toy off once or twice. Still, like another reviewer mentioned about the Minna Ola, it’s fun to surprise your partner with random patterns of vibration.

The Nalone Touch is a workhorse g-spot vibrator with a twist. It’s not a crucial complement to an already full toy box, but it’s absolutely great if you’re looking for a new vibrator that’s just a little different.
