Here’s Why This Mini Vibrator Is My Sneaky New Travel Essential

It’s basically like an emergency tampon… except more fun.


Women's Health |

The Pillow Talk Flirty Vibe is a mini vibrator with a big pay-off. Here’s why every woman – from the dildo doyen to the sex toy newbie – should have one…

It’s, like, Thumbelina tiny

At just 11cm and 2.2cm wide, the Flirty is a great for those “flirting” with the idea of bringing toys into their couples or solo play. It’s small enough for first-time toy penetration experimentation, or as a non-intimidating way to enhance sex – let your partner run it over your nipples during foreplay or let it gently buzz up against your clit during penetration. Ramp up the vibrations as you get more comfortable and learn what you like.

Then for those who’ve been around the sex accessory block a couple of times, the beauty of this toy is more in its actual beauty (it’s cute as a button), its versatility (it’s an accessory to whatever kind of play you’re into – butt included) and its “take-me-anywhere” pocket-size vibes. Seriously, you can toss this baby in your bag – and keep it there for when you need it. So yeah, it’s basically like an emergency tampon… except more fun.

It’s not going to jump out of your bag and embarrass you

Which is why I’ve taken to toting it with me wherever I go. Planes included. Nobody wants to be pulling a rabbit out of their bag – or having it lit up with the rest of the contents of your luggage on the conveyor belt. X-ray shame is real. But not with this guy. You’d be forgiven for mistaking it for a compact travel torch. Plus: Travel lock tech (three quick presses slams it shut like a vault) and you’ll sidestep awkward surprises en route. Trust me, airport security won’t bat an eye. Well, they might just give you a wink.

It’s reeeeeeally pretty, really soft – and really powerful

I mean, a Swarovski stone. “Padded cushion” handle. Soft, sexy, flexible. I’m no aesthete, but even I was left cooing over how cute this little mint-green contraption was. And it’s not just a pretty face. With the super-silky high-grade silicone finish, touch it and you’ll want to rub it up against your cheek – never mind your seriously sensitive bits. Which is where it really comes into its own.

And I mean really. This wee dynamo will transport you from the reality of your one-star motel post-Ricoffee and Cremora tummy ache to a fantasy land far more luxurious and orgasmy than you would’ve thought possible with such a teeny thing. Think: Incremental speed control for precise power. Deep and rumbly PowerBullet vibrations. Nobody would ever guess such a small vibrator could deliver such big orgasms – with a side dish of whoa.

It’s not rocket science

What I really love is that it doesn’t require a post-grad in Sex Ed and a 100-page manual to operate. It’s simple. Press and hold to increase power. One quick press to turn it off. It’s also waterproof so it’s easy to clean, and it’s done away with batteries (hurrah!) and comes with a charging cable for topping up just as you would your cellphone. So, yep, it’s every sexy girl’s new travel essential. What are you waiting for?

The Pillow Talk Flirty Vibrator comes in soft turquoise (pictured) and pink and is available at Passionfruit.co.za for an affordable R794.
