Anonymous Sex Toy Review: The Pom

Over the last few years, sex toy companies and stores have asked us to review their toys in exchange for, you know, their toys. Today we’re reviewing the Pom vibrator from Dame.


I am a sucker for a small, strong vibrator, and I was curious to try out one that boasted flexibility as a main feature. Here’s a play-by-play of my experience with the Pom.

The packaging for this toy, if you care about that sort of stuff, is gorgeous. It comes in two colors (jade and plum), and both are extremely sultry. I went with the minty green option, and I really liked the monochromatic situation at play here. The box is jade, the toy is jade, the bag to store the toy in is jade…whoever designed this little vibe deserves an A+ for overall visual experience.

Once I picked the toy up, I was even more delighted. The material, medical grade silicone, felt silky smooth. I have a lot of vibrators, and at this point in my adult life, all of them are silicone (RIP extremely porous vibe made of goddess knows what jelly-like material I begged my older cousin to buy for me when I was 16), but somehow this vibe felt particularly luscious! I dunno what they did to create this feel, but my fingers were into it.

The whole premise of the Pom vibrator is that it “delivers powerful pleasure from the palm of your hand” and “envelopes your vulva for full coverage and flexes with you for broad stimulation.” So, okay, it’s a tiny vibrator that fits in the palm of your hand… but it’s flexible. I do have multiple other toys that fit that general description (fit in palm of hand, somewhat flexible), so I wasn’t initially that impressed with the description, but when I actually held the toy and tested out how flexible it is, I changed my mind. It’s the same size as a few of my other toys, but it is significantly more flexible than any other small vibe I’ve played with. It also has a nice little nub that I thought would feel very good tucked next to my clit, and the buttons to turn the toy on/off and change its speed and patterns are easy and intuitive to use (plus they look nice — the design of this toy is truly very impressive to witness!).

When I actually got to masturbating, I felt a brief pang of disappointment. I started out lying on my back, and with the Pom vibrator in my hand and pressed against my vulva/clit, it just wasn’t as strong as some other toys of the same size. The vibrations were also slightly more buzzy than what I usually enjoy, and the nub that I’d been excited about positioning near my clit didn’t really excite it in the way I’d hoped it would. I wasn’t expecting deep rumbly vibrations like the Magic Wand or anything — I know that a small vibe performs in a certain way and nothing compares to the pressure or deepness the Magic Wand can provide when lying on your back — but compared with similarly sized toys, I was a little disappointed.

That said, I persevered, as one must, and when I rolled onto my tummy, it was a whole different scenario. Suddenly, the weight of my body was pressing my vulva and my clit up against this toy at just the right pressure to feel amazing, and the vibrations felt less buzzy/tinny and much deeper. I definitely attribute this to the flexible nature of the toy, which really had a chance to shine when I changed positions and leaned into it, quite literally. Cupping my hand around the toy and lightly squeezing to really take advantage of its ability to sort of fold around my entire vulva produced an incredible sensation that felt much deeper than a regular clitoral orgasm.

I think this toy would be great to use with a partner as well as solo, although I only used it by myself, and I can see it tucking really neatly into a harness and moving nicely with one’s thrusting body if someone wanted to use it while strapping on and fucking someone else.

While I don’t think the Pom vibrator is necessarily my #1 toy, simply because I prioritize strong deep vibrations over flexibility, I can absolutely see it soaring to the top of your list if you prefer lighter and buzzier vibrations, if you like to masturbate on your stomach or apply strong pressure to the vibe some other way, or if you’re just a big fan of a really gorgeous palm sized vibe. I feel good about recommending it and am looking forward to trying it out with an activity partner soon!
