I have always been a fan of wireless vibrators, and some of my best stories on this blog involved them. One night while browsing Good Vibes I came across Peggy and I knew I had to have it. I quickly emailed Good vibes and asked if Peggy could be my next review item. A few weeks later I received Peggy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
Peggy is a remote controlled wireless vibrator made by Toyfriend. The remote is powered by a watch battery and the vibrator itself is micro USB rechargeable. The charge lasts up to two hours, and less if you like your vibrators on high buzz. There are 5 different vibration patterns and (I counted) 15 speeds for the steady vibration mode. Peggy is also waterproof!
I had high hopes for Peggy. I had many fantasies of the fun I could have with Peggy; on a date with my boyfriend, at work if I was feeling really brave, or even out doing random errands. Unfortunately those fantasies were dashed when I learned how Peggy works.
To turn Peggy on, you have to press the button on the egg itself. A blue light will turn on where the button is once pressed. To get the vibrations going, you have to press the power on the remote within 10 seconds of pressing the first button. If not pressed within 10 seconds of each other, the blue light on the egg will shut off. If vibrations are turned off (via the remote), they must be turned back on within 10 seconds or else the egg”s button will have to be pressed again. That right there ended all “public play” hopes. If I wanted to wear Peggy in public, I would have to have vibrations going from the time I hid her in my panties. There would be no turning it off and turning it back on again randomly throughout the day.
The buttons on the remote were easy to press, but they had to be pressed in just the right way or they would not work with the vibrator. I found that I had to hold the button down for half a second to get the two to communicate. The remote is advertised to work up to 20 meters away from the egg, but I found that the closer the two were to each other, the better I was able to change speeds, modes, and even power.
The vibrations that come from Peggy were strong, but buzzy. They weren’t too loud, but they certainly weren’t quiet. Using the toy under blankets, however, will help to muffle the vibration sound.
One end of the egg comes equipped with a silicone pull cord, making vaginal insertion a definite possibility. Since there is no flared base, this toy is not anal safe. Charging is easy, as you just have to unscrew the egg part in the middle. inside is the charging port for the micro USB.
Overall, I felt like Peggy had a lot of potential, but having to press both buttons within 10 seconds of each other to make it function makes it a bit pointless. Then again, I always imagined wireless vibrators to be tucked inside panties and worn while out and about, particularly on a hot date to let your partner have a little fun with you. The vibrations were also too buzzy for my taste, though the loudness of the toy was not too bad compared to other toys. I loved that Peggy is waterproof and is made from body safe materials.
Thank you Good Vibes for letting me review this toy.
