The Pom Vibrator Is The Crazy-Flexible Sex Toy That Feels Like Your Hand—But Better
With hundreds (maybe thousands?!) of vibrators and dildos out there, and pages upon pages of sex toys on Amazon and online sex shops, finding your perfect toy can feel like searching for the proverbial needle in a haystack. It’s a struggle Grace Ho knows well. And she’s a "Leading Pleasure Expert" (translation: sex educator) at Sweet Vibrations, so she’s way more knowledgeable about sex toys than the average bear online shopper.
Still, Ho found herself searching relentlessly for a vibrator that’s small, smooth, sleek, and powerful, but not too powerful. Then, she stumbled upon Dame Products' Pom—a cool, new vibrator that fits perfectly into the palm of your hand. "I was really excited about it," she says. "Finally, here was something tiny and simple, but still sexy."
Why People Love Pom
- It's tiny, classy, and sleek
- It's super quiet
- It's soft, but powerful
If you, like Ho, find yourself dreaming of a sex toy that’s small and soft, Pom is it. Added bonus: it's super flexible and moves perfectly with your body. "I was really impressed with the way it fits in the palm of my hand," Ho says. "It fit perfectly, actually. It was super tiny and really classy."
Pom is an external vibrator meant to mimic your hand (you know, if your hand could vibrate). Except, it’s way, way better than your hand. Thanks to several different vibration settings and a little notch at the top of the toy, you can pinpoint vibrations right on your clit—or ya know, any other body part.
This toy is particularly good for people like Ho, who don’t love the feeling of super buzzy toys. "If you don’t want anything too direct or too powerful, this would be really enjoyable for you," she says. That’s exactly why she went looking for something like Pom in the first place—other vibrators were just #toomuch.
But don't worry, Pom is still plenty powerful. It’s just not going to make you feel like your vulva has fallen off. Instead, "reach your hand down and cup the vibrator around your vulva lips," Ho suggests. "Moving it all the way down along your vulva feels really good."
Pom is also amazing for exploring your **entire** body. You can use it on your clitoris, of course, but you can also try putting it against your pelvic bone. "That will send the vibrations through that whole area," Ho says. And tbh, that sounds pretty d*mn nice.
Also amazing: You can do all this exploration of your body even while your roommate is chilling in the next room. Pom's engine is whisper quiet, Ho says. It barely makes a sound, which means lots of fun for you and no awkward conversations about that weird buzz coming from your room.
Where It Falls Flat
- It's a little pricey
- It's not for beginners
- It's not the MOST powerful
Like most quality sex toys, Pom is an investment (but an investment Ho says is 100-percent worth it). Plus, if you can’t afford the $95 outright, Dame Products does offer the option of splitting it into four payments of $23.75.
Still, the price tag is one reason that Pom isn’t the best beginner vibe, according to Ho. The other: It requires a little knowledge of your sexy likes and dislikes. "If you’re looking to explore yourself, and you don’t know what you like, it's maybe not the best," she says. "You want to start with something a little more upfront and in your face with the features." Pom isn’t your basic bullet vibe—it’s more sophisticated—so you’ll get the most out of it if you already know which buttons your body likes to be pressed.
Pom is also not the best toy if you need/want tons of power to get off. Basically, if the Magic Wand rocks your world, then Pom might not do it for you. "It’s not as flamboyant as some other sex toys," Ho adds.
The Ground-Breaking Features
- It's MAJORLY flexible
- It's velvet smooth
When Ho says that Pom is flexible, she MEANS flexible. The toy bends almost completely in half, which makes it unlike any other sex toy you’ve had in your hands (or anywhere else on your body). "I’ve tested a lot of toys and explored a lot of sensations," Ho says.
But she’d never seen a vibrator as bendable as Pom. It turned out to be exactly what she needed since, she explains, "some of the other toys that are less flexible are a little harsh for me." Because you can bend Pom, you get to choose how much or how little pressure to apply to your body—the more pressure, the more intense the vibrations will feel, and vice versa.
The softness also makes this little toy crazy versatile. "It allows me to explore other areas of my body that are tender, which would be harder to do with a harsher toy," Ho says. Think parts like: nipples, your neck, the small of your back, the inside of your thighs, and anywhere else that would benefit from a little buzz.
What's more, Pom is made with a super smooth, medical-grade silicone. So not only does it feel ahhhmazing against your skin—Pom is totally safe for it, too.
The bottom line: Pom is a uniquely soft and flexible toy that can help you discover hidden goldmines all over your body. But if you're looking for a first vibrator, it's not the best since it requires a seasoned hand and bigger investment.
