Review: Vibro by Nexus


Sasha insisted that the Nexus Vibro has a microchip in it.

“Why?” I asked.

She admitted she didn't know, but insisted it was important and she was getting one to try. Weeks later, she told me that Rob wasn't interested in trying it, and since I'm clearly “the butt guy” on this website, maybe I'd want to do a review. Again she pointed out the fact that the Nexus Vibro comes equipped with “microchip technology.”

“It hones in on your prostate…” she insisted.

I shrugged.  “Okay, but that doesn't make a lot of sense.”

So I took the Vibro home. I'd seen this bad boy on their website when I was reviewing the other toys in their line.   It's a lot like the Nexus Neo and Glide in shape and texture, though feels distinctly higher end. The plastic is higher quality for sure and it has a hole in the bottom to slide in an included bullet vibrator. The shape of it is also quite different, while all five of the others we reviewed were different stoutnesses, they all were pretty much straight up and down. The Vibro has a distinct lean forward to poke directly into the prostate.   It also is “ribbed for my pleasure” as it has a series of raised rings all down its shaft. Also, as the Neo, Glide, and Excel do, the Vibro has a ball bearing on an extension arm to press directly into your perineum, and since it's a ball bearing, it doesn't just press, it moves.

I immediately approached this toy with trepidation, as I'd had so much fun with the Nexus Gyro and G-Rider, I didn't want to sully my opinion with a…ahem…lesser toy. (My my, I have become a sex toy snob, haven't I? [I didn't know at the time that the Vibro is actually Nexus' top of the line] ) It was also so much thinner than the Gyro and G-Rider. But I took a deep breath and gave it a try.  Insertion was quite easy with a little lube on it, and it immediatly gave me different feeling than the previous toys.  The forward bend and raised rings were impressively unique. That's when I reached down and pressed the button on the back of the vibe.

Oh my God.

I can't quite describe it, even. First of all, the vibrator doesn't have a constant on setting.  So from the first press of the button you're getting one of many different rising and falling intensity settings.  And I don't know quite what it was, but the pressure on my prostate was distinct, something that I'd never felt before (except with fingers) and intense. Couple that with the rising and falling vibration and for the first time I thought I might understand how people can have prostate orgasms.  I didn't of course, I still don't quite believe in those, but for the first time they seemed like a remote possibility.

Moments later, I had the longest orgasm of my life. I didn't clock it, but it just kept rolling in waves, the way I imagine my wifes are when she gushes. At least 30-45 seconds.  More intense than any before as well.

“See, the microchip…” Sasha told me when I informed her that I may have found my new favorite toybox toy.

And that's the thing, this microchip business doesn't make any sense to me whatsoever. Is it in the bullet?  In the head of the toy itself?  If it's in the head of the toy, what the hell's powering it?  If it's in the bullet, how could it possibly know which direction the prostate is…and what the hell does Nexus! mean when they say it “tunes in” to the male G-Spot?   But disreguarding all of that, they're right about one thing…it did result in an orgasm like no other!

So I call that a big time win. The Vibro rocks!  Three cheers for “microchip technology,” and four cheers for Nexus!

  1. I really like the Vibro but let it be known this thing requires a non-standard N3 lithium battery — $7 is about as cheap as I've found them on the net. For the life of me I don't understand why Nexus chose this type of battery for the insertable bullet because with just a slight design mod they could have had it take a AA instead.

  2. Yea I’ve been having issue trying to find replacement batteries and have had no luck at all. The ones I’ve gotten are either to small to long or to big to fit it. Any advice on this. What size is it because I looked up N3 lithium and that does fit nor the one that is listed on the site can find. It says it’s a LR1 but everything I look up comes of LR1 size N which ends up being to long.
