Ease of Care: 3/5

+ Low Price                                - Strange Clitoral Nubs
+ Easy One Button Control           - Not Waterproof
+ Ergonomic Grip                        - Weak Vibrations


     The Ivy Intimate Touch Massager is a clitoral vibrator designed by California Exotic Novelties.It features an ergonomic curved tip and a rather strange triangular patch of nubs at the tip. It is powered by two AAA batteries and controlled by a single push button on the top.

Materials, Texture, and Care

     The Ivy Intimate Touch Massager is made of mostly plastic with a silicone portion for the clitoral stimulator and a grip on the other side. It is somewhat porous and should not be shared between users that are not fluid-bonded, but it is an overall relatively safe material. The portion of the toy that comes in contact with the body should be washed with warm soap and water, taking care not to allow the water to come into contact with the rest of the toy as it is not waterproof. There is actually quite a large opening around the battery cartridge that it is important to take care that water does not get into this area.
     The tip is designed with 13 silicone nubs in a triangular pattern which creates a rather strange texture when it comes in contact with the body. Since this is a texture I've never seen before I expected it to be unique but instead of being interesting it just felt more pokey than anything else.


     The shape and style of this toy is perfect. It is approximately 4.5 in. long and 2.5 in. wide and fits perfectly in the palm of my hand. The tip also has a really nice downward curve that is very ergonomic, it mirrors both the shape of my hand and the curve over my pelvis. The tip is about 1 in. wide and nestles between my labia perfectly, almost like an enlarged finger.

Vibration Functions

     The vibrator features 3 speeds and 4 functions as follows:
  1. Low
  2. Medium
  3. High
  4. BzBzBzzzz
  5. BzBzBzBzBzBz
  6. bzBZbzBZbzBZbz
     Once cycling through all of the patterns the toy will turn off, there is no quick way to shut it off without cycling through all of the patterns, although it does not vibrate while holding the button down so in a pinch you could try that.The vibrations themselves are quite buzzy and not very strong, probably a high 2/5 on their strongest.


     Ivy is controlled with two AAA batteries that are inserted into the side of the toy. Be careful with the battery cover, it has a habit of flying out of my hand when trying to take it off unless I have a tight grip on it, on the other hand though the toy can double as a weapon.
     The vibrations are controlled with a very simple single push button on the top of the toy. The way I grip the toy I need to slide my fingers pretty far back to push the button, while this might be a little awkward I do prefer this to having the button be too easy to push.


     This toy was a free gift with one of my purchases from another site so it came simply packaged in a clear plastic bag that was destroyed upon opening so it will not work for storage. It included only a small slip of paper with directions for battery insertion but it is a simple toy and didn't need much more.

Closing Thoughts

     I would not have picked this toy out myself because of the strange clitoral nubs but I figured that maybe it would be unique and interesting instead of just plain weird. Unfortunately it turns out my first impression was the case, it was just strange. If the vibration was a bit stronger it may have been okay, because I love the ergonomic shape but the vibrations were way too weak and the clitoral tip was just plain odd.
