When I first heard the term ‘liquid vibrator,’ I felt curious and confused. My brain visualized a cartoonish process where a nectar-like liquid could somehow make my vagina vibrate like one of those pagers a hostess hands you while you wait for a table at The Cheesecake Factory. As amazing and straight up funny as that sounds, I couldn’t quite wrap my head around the idea and yet I felt excited to understand. As a recent devotee of vibrating underwear, I understand the erotic empowerment of experiencing clitoral arousal in a discreet way, so I was excited to explore the burgeoning sexual wellness trend. 

What is a “liquid vibrator” anyway?

First, I want to break down what a liquid vibrator *actually* is. With the help of various aphrodisiac herbs and other elements like ginger, leaf oils and sometimes menthol, liquid vibrators are lotion-like formulas designed to increase blood flow to your genitals. Typically applied directly to the clitoris, they increase sensitivity which gives you that turned on and fluttery vagina feeling. Depending on how much you apply and the product you’re using, liquid vibrators can create a pulse-like effect that mimics and assists arousal. 

I tested the Bijoux Indescrets Clitherapy It’s a Match! Liquid Vibrator

A lubricated vagina is my first response when asked about having more comfortable, pleasurable sex. It just makes the whole experience better. If you’re a more hippie-leaning vagina owner like myself, you’re going to want to explore the healthiest options for your liquid vibrator experience. This, among other reasons, is why my favorite option is Bijoux Indiscrets Clitherapy It’s a Match! Liquid Vibrator ($20)

The Clitherapy Liquid Vibrator stands out because it contains Acmella Flower Extract, which has a unique effect on the body according to BIPOC sexologist Marla Renee Stewart, MA, sexpert for Lovers, “The Acmella Flower is known to have a tingling or numbing effect, due to the spilanthol, which is the main active ingredient in the plant. According to research, the spilanthol also increases testosterone production, which can aid in helping you to feel more sexually excited. Because you'd be placing it on a mucous membrane, it also has a ‘wetting’ effect, so it naturally increases vaginal fluid, which can be helpful for folks who would like to increase their vaginal fluid expulsion.”

A new energy has entered the chat

And that it did, my friends. As per the directions, I applied two to three drops onto my clitoris and waited for the vibe to kick in. The liquid smells like cocoa and is creamy, like a light lotion. Not sticky or chemical-feeling, I enjoyed the application process. It warmed my clitoris within three to five minutes and began to tingle within ten. At that point, I would say it kind of ‘hurt so good’ to be honest with you. It’s a tingle that gets stronger as the experience goes on, and the tingle adds to the arousal experience in a ‘new energy has entered the chat’ kind of way. It was doing its own thing that changed over time. I found the anticipation of the changes to be very pleasurable, resulting in a strong hands-only clitoral orgasm. It did in fact create more lubricant inside of my vagina as well, which was awesome, however I wouldn’t say there was pulsation exactly. I did love what was happening, but I’d say it was a bit more of a cooling, then heating, then tingling feeling. I loved the sensations. 

Overall takeaway

The whole experience was about 30 to 40 minutes long. If you don’t have that kind of time on your hands (haha) you can easily rinse it off with water. Although I used it solo, it’s important to mention that it is condom-safe, which makes this product even more legendary. Highly recommend.
