I’ve been pretty obsessed with the “waving” shaft rabbits they have come out. I loved Evolved’s Nocturnal Emissions, so when the opportunity came to try out the original by California Exotics, I jumped at the chance! What I did find however, though the idea may be the same, the motion and feeling the two created were very different.
This waver is made from clear purple TPE which is very pliable. While the shaft won’t bend at all because of the internal mechanisms, it creates a soft coating that allows for the waving motion to be felt. The TPE is completely smooth, with a bit of drag over the un-lubed surface. The material has no scent, and is latex & phthalate-free, as well as hypo-allergenic.
The Passion Waver is a approximately the same length as most rabbits, at 10” long, 5 ¼” insertable. But it is quite a bit thicker, with a diameter of 1 3/5”. While some may find this too big, I actually like the extra girth, and find that it allows for the waving to be even more noticeable than had the shaft been more of a slim-line.
The control panel is pretty standard as far as this type of vibe goes. It has two buttons on either side that turn the waving shaft and clit stimulator up and down, and lighted indicators that correspond with each speed. And then one button in at the top that reverses the directions of the waves. The buttons can be hard to feel in my experience, as they material goes completely over the controls and they feel like little bumps underneath.
I found the motion very easy to feel, but to me it is more like a fluttering feeling than a strong waving motion. It does have three speeds of waving. For me, it feels like the fluttering is faster, but not stronger or more pronounced. So depending on my mood, its one of the few toys that I don’t mind using on the lower settings.
I also found that when I reversed the motion of the waves, they felt a bit stronger and more pleasurable for me. And for reasons unknown, quieter as well. On its original setting the waver makes a sort of “clicking” that is extremely distracting. Not only can I hear it, but I can feel it as well. And I don’t like it at all. If it felt like a pulse, I could maybe get into it, but its not, it clicks like something isn’t quite right inside. However, on the reverse direction, I don’t feel it at all. I’m not sure whether its just a flaw in my toy or if they are all like this?
The clit stimulator is also somewhat unique for a rabbit in that it is shaped like a flat tongue rather than bunny ears. When I seen the product pics I just thought it was a flat stimulator, and I kinda like that. When I actually had it in my hand I realized that it is supposed to be lips with a protruding tongue. To me, it just kinda cheapens the design. Regardless, in use I like the singular flat surface (opposed to bunny ears or similar) as it gives a broader surface on which the vibrations can be felt.
The vibrations are pretty decent in strength, about as strong as the average bullet. They are not the deepest of vibrations, but not buzzy either. I think the average user would enjoy it. Unfortunately, it does not have any patterns. My favorite aspect of the clit stim is that it is 2 ½” long (measured from the inside), so it reaches my clit very well. The stimulator is flexible, so it will adjust to different anatomies.
Battery-life is pretty decent with this guy, I get a good 2+ hours of use on the 3 AA batteries it takes, even though I don’t remove them between uses. This toy is waterproof, which makes it easy to clean thoroughly with mild soap and warm water, or toy cleaner. TPE is not safe for sharing due to its somewhat porous nature, and is not sterilizable.
Like other rabbits, this one is not the easiest to store due to its size. The clear plastic box it comes in will not last for storage. It doesn’t fit in regular toy pouches, and it won’t tuck in to a small purse. But its worth finding a place for if you like rabbits, and especially rabbits that have unique features.
