Product Review: Snugglepuss by Vibratex
Isn’t it funny looking? Cin has one, too, and it just looked like so much fun. It’s the Snugglepuss by Vibratex.
How’s it made?
The Snugglepuss is hinged pink plastic encased in a pink elastomer sleeve. It’s phthalates and latex free and hypoallergenic. It’s about four inches long and an inch and a quarter at its widest point.
It’s shaped sort of like a “U”, with one side having a sort of butterfly on it with nubs between the wings, and the other being shaped sort of like a big toe (Yes, I realize how gross that visual is. I can’t help it! That’s what it looks like!) with nubs all over it as well.
The side with the butterfly comes off to reveal the batter compartment, which, if I’m to be honest, I was rather disappointed with. First, the sleeve is excruciatingly difficult to remove without tearing. I managed, but I have a tendency to treat my sex toys like the slightest wrong touch will break them. Second, once I got the sleeve off, the battery cap just sort of popped off in my hands. It’s a teeny-tiny square of plastic with no real clasp to speak of.
Inside, you’ll find three watch batteries separated with a thin piece of plastic to keep it from draining them or turning the toy on. Pull out that plastic, replace the cap and sleeve, and you’re good to go.
The toy turns on and off by separating the two ends, so you need do nothing from here but insert it and adjust it so it’s sitting correctly.
What’s it for?
This toy is made for handsfree simultaneous g-spot and clitoral stimulation. Insert the thicker end. Situate the butterfly so that it’s directly over your clitoris. Let your labia close around the butterfly wings, and enjoy the ride.
How is it?

I liked it better when I was walking than when I was sitting still. It seems that, like the G-Rock, you get better stimulation if you rock your hips.
The motor’s sort of powerful. I’d say it falls somewhere between medium and high in strength. And it’s not overly loud.
I was actually worried that it might not be a good toy for me because of my size. But I found that my size didn’t hinder the toy at all. It hugs my pubic bone snugly and stays in place without any effort on my part. Even when I was moving.
The thicker end fits right up against my g-spot and stimulates nicely. My only real complaint is having to move a lot to make it do much of anything.
How do you care for it?
Very carefully? Snugglepuss isn’t waterproof and the sleeve, obviously, isn’t whole. And, like I mentioned before, the battery cap isn’t the most reliable thing in the world. So I try to make sure my butterfly side is on as snugly as possible and hold it with the curved part between my fingers and the open end pointed down so as little water as possible will get inside.
I haven’t had the problem Cin did with the toy opening on its own and draining the batteries. Maybe the hinge in hers was too loose? Maybe the hinge in mine is too tight? Who knows? But I’d still store it without the batteries in it (or with the little plastic strip in place) just in case.
Antibacterial soap and water or a bleach solution works great. Use water based lube. And if you’re going to share it between partners or orifices, I’d suggest a condom.
