Good Design In Spite of Its Issues

Body Blossom

Body Blossom

Our very generous friends at sent us a Body Blossom G-Spot Vibrator to play with. In life, one must often not look a gift horse in the mouth. In PeggingLife, however, we are all about giving a real honest opinion on products our friends send us to play with. So, gift horse or not, open up, Body Blossom.

The Body Blossom is a u-shaped g-spot vibrator made from purple TPR. It is about an inch and a quarter in diameter with an insertable portion that is four inches long. The insertable shaft has three pronounced ridges and curved and pointy end for stimulating the g-spot. The other end of the ‘u’ holds the multi-function bullet vibe and a molded flower with petals and a bumpy center. This is intended to for clitoral stimulation. It is fairly flexible yet firm enough to provide pressure. TPR is slightly porous so it cannot be sterilized. It is compatible with silicone and water-based lubes. The bullet vibe has five vibration settings which you can ‘scroll’ through by pushing the on/off button.

There are three basic issues we had with the Body Blossom . First, the bullet vibe was dead right out of the box. This was not really that big of a deal for us for a number of reasons. Mrs. Peg is not a fan of vibration, at least not the high frequency vibrations typical of watch battery-powered bullet vibes. The hole for the vibe is a standard size and we were able to swap it with a bullet we already had for the sake of this review. We couldn’t test the functions, but we could feel how well the toy transmitted the vibrations. (Surprisingly, the toy transmit vibrations pretty well. The vibrations were felt best at the flower, but you could feel them at the tip as well.) The third reason the bullet thing really wasn’t an issue is because has some pretty stellar customer service. If this weren’t the proverbial gift horse I know I could have called customer service for a replacement without a problem.

Our second issue with the Body Blossom is that the flower is twisted slightly off center. It is not formed in such a way that the center does not rest on Mrs. Peg’s clit. Instead the petals are on Mrs. Peg’s clit. I am not sure if this is a design flaw, intentional, or a product defect. Looking a the pictures on the website, though, it seems like a product defect. Again, customer service would fix this without an issue I am sure.

Our third issue is exacerbated by the second issue. The petal of the flower that would be resting on Mrs. Peg’s clit is sticking straight out perpendicular to the toy. This is surely a design flaw. I think it just cooled this way after the toy was cast. Whatever the cause, this rendered the toy unusable in it current state because the petal, while flexible, is stiff enough to be extremely uncomfortable for Mrs. Peg. Once again, if this were a freebie we have sought a replacement from customer service. Our solution was a sharp modeling knife….no more petals.

Mrs. Peg really enjoys having a toy inside of her while I fuck her (providing the toy has a narrow enough girth). The Body Blossom is just about maxing out the girth limit but we made it work. The shape provides very good g-spot stimulation and the ridges ad a nice bit of texture. It is, in spite of the flower, a nicely shaped toy and fun to play with. In all, we would recommend this toy. And remember, if you do have a problem, get in touch with customer service. stands behind what it sells.

Have fun and play safely!

  1. If the flower doesn't do what it's intended to do then it definitely sounds like a design fault. You would assume that these things are checked before they go into full production. Its a shame because this looks like a toy that's very appealing on the eye. AmyS
