[This is the second installment of Postcards from the Peanut Gallery! This feature chronicles my readers' experiences with toys I reviewed. If you want to tell me about yours, contact me.]

I’m not surprised that my insanely extensive and enthusiastic review of the Eroscillator resulted in several of my readers lusting after it. Sarahbear took the plunge and actually bought it; here’s what happened!

My husband and I read your review for the Eroscillator together. More than once you had almost convinced me to get the biggest package they offer but I couldn’t resist a coupon for the 2 Plus. It arrived the next day and I ripped open the packaging and shooed the kids out of the room.

It was time for some one on one with my Eroscillator.

I’m not a huge fan of porn, but since you convinced me to buy it I logged into my account on a website and impatiently hunted for something to make me horny. I couldn’t decide which of the attachments to use first. I tried the grapes and cockscomb first. Not quite what I was looking for. Then the fingertip. Ouch! It stuck to my pubes and pulled them. Not that one either. I put in the ball and cup, using the side with the three nubs to rub against my clit. It wasn’t long before I orgasmed. Hard. I was still a little disappointed though. I expected it to be explosive. It wasn’t until I tried to use another one of my clit vibrators that I realized how different and how awesome the Eroscillator was. I’ll be buying the other four attachments soon. I’m hoping they’re as awesome as you say they are.

I do have to disagree with you on one thing. I got the one without the extra power boost and I’m glad I did. I can’t even handle this thing on the second setting, let alone the third. I may have a really sensitive clit because if it had any more power I couldn’t use it at all! I am really glad I bought it and thank you so much for your really informative, honest review. It gave me everything I needed to know to make a decision about such a hefty investment in a sex toy.

Haha — first of all, I love that you had to watch porn because of me. Bad influence?! Secondly, I completely agree that other vibrators feel different in comparison. The more you use the Eroscillator, the more obvious the difference becomes.

I’m glad you didn’t need the power-boosted one. One day I will find an Eroscillator to compare mine to, and the truth about the power difference will be discerned!

[Update: I DID IT. I compared the two!]

    See, I *wish* I had bought the one with the extra power boost, because, for me, the third setting is justahair not enough. I think Lilly had the same issue. But I’m glad Sarahbear loves hers!

    @Britni TheVadgeWig: Yeah — I wish there was an easy way to know which Eroscillator would work best for each of us…

    Maybe you could trade yours on toy swap to someone in exchange for cash and save up for the big one. It’s hard to pick toys based on some of the stuff you guys review because of how sensitive my clit is. Stuff that sucks for you, rocks for me. I guess it just takes a lot of trial and error. Fortunately we get some of our stuff for free. ;)

    I was confused about this issue too. I don’t have an eroscillator (yet!), but I’ve investigated and the oscillation frequency remains the same for both the models; the difference is in torque. My guess at a laypersons explanation is that with an extra powered eroscillator you might be able to apply more pressure to the clitoris before the oscillations will slow down. Which I suppose is the same thing as having a slower or faster oscillation, but if you are only using mild pressure there probably wouldn’t be a difference. I don’t know which one I need either, but I do like pressure!
    Thanks for your review Epiphora!

    Oh, I’d love to hear your results of a side-by-side comparison of the regular Oscillator and the turbo-boosted one!
