I have been eyeing L’Amourose products for quite some time now. Every review that I have read has pretty much been glowing – especially for the Prism V. I wasn’t even skeptical about it – I was hoping it would work for me and I was totally right.
The L’Amourose Prism V is a G-spot vibrator that is made of silicone and is waterproof and USB rechargeable. It is 7 inches long with 6 of them being insertable. The diameter of the insertable head is 1.3 inches (33 mm) according to their website. It has 5 vibration modes and 12 speeds. It requires 1 hour of charge to be used for 2.5 hours (which is pretty damn decent compared to most other vibrators). It also comes in three amazing non-stereotypical sex toy colours: sunset red, azure blue and sky blue.
The best part about the Prism V is the bulbous head and its glorious curve. It is intended for G-spot stimulation (it can’t be recommended for prostate stimulation because it doesn’t have an anal-safe flared base). The handle itself has prism-like indents to help with grip. There are three buttons – a ‘plus’ and ‘minus’ for intensity and a middle button for patterns.
The L’Amourose Prism V comes with a USB charger, a storage pouch, an instruction manual and a warranty card. It has an 18-month warranty and a lifetime guarantee.
The best judge of a toy is if you’re looking forward to using it again instead of dreading needing to review it. The Prism V has found its way onto my nightstand and has had many enjoyable repeat uses. In fact, for the first time in a year, I found a toy that rivals my Fucking Sculptures Corkscrew. I normally don’t like G-spot vibrations but this toy has converted me.
It inserts easily and almost instantly finds my G-spot. I find that I need to angle the handle downward for maximum effect, but I do this with most insertable toys. The only issue with the Prism V is that the base of the handle angles inconveniently for me to do this. The end of the handle ends up hitting the bed and I find myself having to angle my pelvis upward to accommodate the lack of space. Again, a minor issue for a toy that is so wonderful, but it still has to lose a small point for that inconvenience.
Otherwise, the vibrations are rumbly but I wouldn’t consider it to be one of our strongest toys. All We-Vibe products (including the Rave) and our Lovehoney Deluxe G-Spot Vibrator seem to have a stronger motor than the Prism V. For this reason, I often use it on the higher settings. If I want a really quick orgasm, then I turn it all the way up.
The angle of the bulb tugs perfectly at my G-spot and the vibrations warm it up quickly and can make me orgasm pretty damn quickly.
As a clitoral vibe it just doesn’t work for me. It feels fine, but the rounded head isn’t ‘pinpoint‘ enough for my liking. The good news is that the Prism V is incredibly easy to use with another vibrator or a person’s mouth on my clitoris!
The buttons are surprisingly hard to press. I find myself having to visually check their placement and then actually focusing on pressing them. In order to turn on the Prism V, you need to press the ‘plus’ button. In order to turn it off, you need to hold down the ‘minus’ button until it scrolls through all of the intensities and then turns off. The buttons are a small inconvenience but I don’t find that it is a reason to avoid this toy.
Everything that was mentioned above stands true for partnered play, but I wanted to mention a very, very minor downside. At first when Andy was using this toy on me, he really disliked the handle. He said it was awkward to hold and was uncomfortable for his hand because the base does the opposite of most toys and is actually the largest part. He has since gotten used to it and no longer has any issues, but I figured it might be worth mentioning for people who might have concerns about ease-of-holding.
Lube: As with all silicone products, it is suggested to use water-based lubricant or do a patch test with hybrid or silicone lubes.
Cleaning: Waterproof and silicone! It couldn’t get easier!
The L’Amourose Prism V is exactly what everyone has been raving about. The rumbly vibrations mixed with that beautifully sculpted G-spot-targeting bulbed head are a perfect combination. I enjoy using this toy solo as well as with a partner. I normally don’t like G-spot vibrations but this toy has definitely won me over. This toy isn’t a complex product – it is very simple in its design but it does what my body wants and it does it really, really well.
Recommended For: People who enjoy G-spot stimulation. People who want to try excellent G-spot vibrations. People who are tired of pink and purple sex toys. People who enjoy medium/broad vibrations for clitoral stimulation.
Not Recommended For: I honestly can’t think of any. Besides not being safe for anal use (no flared base), I can’t find a reason why you wouldn’t want to buy this toy. Maybe if you have issues with pressing buttons then you might want to skip this one, but that’s the only reason.
Thank you to L’Amourose for providing us with a Prism V in exchange for an honest and unbiased review
