L’Amourose Prism VII Rouge Review
By Carnal Queen.
Drumroll please … It’s a new month, a new year, and I’m starting off with a brand new toy from L’Amourose! I really couldn’t be happier about that, what an awesome way to start 2016! I was thrilled when the Prism VII Rouge landed on my doorstep, late December, in a Christmas package from L’Amourose and Pasante, so a huge thanks to them!
Regulars to my blog will know just how much I love my Rosa Rouge. It was a toy that knocked my socks off from the very first time I tried it, and it’s still in my list of top toys now, so you can imagine how excited I got when I learned of the L’Amourose Prism line. When I found out they were going to be launching a Rouge version, I was even more delighted. I love the heat on the Rosa, it works wonders for me and my orgasms, and when I unpacked my Prism VII, I was over the moon to discover that they’d sent me the Rouge version. Much excitement! Was this going to be the perfect rabbit vibrator for me?
I won’t keep you in suspense … No, it’s not the perfect rabbit for me, but hang on there just a minute! Please stick with me for a little while longer, and let me explain to you why I still totally love the Prism VII Rouge. Let me tell you why I’d I still recommend it over the Prism V, and why it will possibly see more action than my beloved Rosa Rouge! (Now there’s a sentence that I never thought I’d see myself say!)
I kinda miss the uber plush packaging that the Rosa Rouge and the Vera had. I know it’s a little thing, and the Prism packaging is still nice, and it is clear it’s a luxury brand, but L’Amourose have spoilt me! I like the sleek black boxes and the ribbons that I’ve become accustomed to, and the Prism VII is undoubtedly packaged along more simple lines. I’m also not a huge fan of the charging system of the Prism line, because it’s magnetic. The first time I put it on charge, it didn’t charge, because it had obviously been knocked slightly, which is easily done. I’m impatient, and this can be frustrating for me, especially when it seems to take so little movement to cause it to disconnect. Subsequent charges have involved me sneaking back across the room, ninja style, to look for the flashing light that denotes charging, or the solid light when fully charged. Anything to make sure I still have a solid connection!
First outing with this toy was not what I expected. I think I was subconsciously expecting to be blown away, and that really wasn’t the case, and that made me sad. The clit arm motor does absolutely nothing for me. Nothing. Nadda. To the point, where I’m fumbling around down there, making sure it’s in the right place, because I instantly thought ‘ah, it’s too short, it’s not reaching my clit’. It was reaching my clit, which is surprising because it does look too short, but the curve and shape of it mean, that if I could actually feel the vibrations properly, I’m certain it would be fabulous for me, because it sits just right. The motor at the base of the clit arm just isn’t strong enough, or maybe it’s not in the right place, to send the vibrations up to the tip. Sad times.
Enough negativity! The shape of the Prism VII along the shaft to the top is almost identical to the Rosa Rouge, it’s just ever so slightly slimmer. It feels to me in use, exactly the same as the Rosa, so I’m a happy girl. It finds and charms my G-Spot effortlessly, and it feels fantastic. The thermal regulation system (the heaty-up bit!) works exactly as it does on the Rosa Rouge, obtaining between 40 and 42 degrees in 3 to 5 minutes, but for some reason, it seems to feel much warmer, much quicker, and I personally love that. Maybe the heating element is closer to the surface in the Prism VII than the Rosa, who knows? My G-Spot and clit adore the heat, it’s like ‘Woohoo, it’s warm there, let’s send tons of blood to the area and give her some mind blowing orgasms!’, which incidentally, is totally fine by me. I’m sure there’s some science to back up my ideas, but I never did like science. The heat from the Rouge toys make my orgasms stronger, longer and feel amazing – that’s all I need to know!
I’ve always loved the Rosa for G-Spot stimulation, but since I’ve had it, I’ve learnt my favourite way to use it is for clitoral orgasms, and the Prism VII is no exception. In fact, I prefer it to the Rosa for clitoral stimulation! It’s just so comfortable to hold and only weighs 158g, plus the shape of the base means I can easily exert pressure, when and where I need to. The buttons are also in a great place on the Prism, meaning that it will be easier to use, for both left and right handed people. They need a firm press, but I don’t mind this, because it’s saves me accidentally changing the setting as I’m approaching orgasm, and then subsequently tearing my hair out in frustration! The texture around the base not only looks stylish, but adds a bit of extra grip for when things get slippy down there, and there are no seams or jagged bits, it’s flawless.
The vibrations don’t let me down either, not on the main motor anyway. They’re deep and delicious, and almost identical to that of the Rosa Rouge. I say almost identical, they may actually be exactly the same, but something makes them feel the tiniest bit different to me. Perhaps the motor’s placed slightly different, I’m not sure, but they don’t feel quite as deep and rumbly – most days anyway! There have been times when I’m not sure, and they do feel the same – maybe that gives you an idea of how similar they feel to each other. It has 7 modes and 12 speeds, but I just love full power, constant vibrations all the way. Although the clit arm motor is weaker and more buzzy, I still prefer to use it with this motor on, as it adds to the overall vibration of the toy. There’s just something about the frequency and depth of L’Amourose vibrations, my body seems to tune into them, and they suit me very well.
So, why would I recommend the Prism VII Rouge over the Prism V, when the clit arm doesn’t work for me? Well firstly, there’s the thermal regulation system – they don’t make the Prism V with heat! To be honest, that’s the only reason I need, but there’s more. The clit arm is great when CK is using the Prism VII on me, internally. His thumb sits comfortably against it, and he gets no fatigue in the hand from holding it, it’s very ergonomic. I’m lucky, CK knows my body, probably better than I do actually, but I definitely think the VII is good for over enthusiastic thrusting partners. If you don’t like having your cervix bashed, you’ll enjoy feeling smug, safe in the knowledge that your partner isn’t going to be able to scoop your insides out with this toy, because the clit arm prevents that. The Prism VII has 7 modes, compared to the V’s 5, and it also has slightly more insertable length. They’re subtle differences, but I like having all the options. Is that enough reasons, or do you want another one? You’re getting one anyway … Anal Play! In my opinion, the VII is far more anal safe than the V. Whilst the V might be totally fine, the VII’s clit arm make me feel so much more comfortable about anal play. I would be worried about unwanted travel with the V, justified or not.
In summary, I really do love it, it’s beautiful! The ease of use, the comfortable shape, the delicious warmth, the glorious vibrations … it really does all add up to an awesome toy. Because the dual stimulation element of the Rosa didn’t really work for me either, I’m left with two toys that don’t quite fulfil their promises, but are still totally awesome. I’d have to say, I think I’d recommend the Prism VII over the Rosa, because the lower price point makes it better value. For a silicone, waterproof, rechargeable toy of this quality, it’s incredible. I perhaps wish it lasted a little longer than around an hour, with the heat on, but I can live with that. I think the Rosa Rouge may have been knocked off my top spot! At least it was L’Amourose that outdid themselves though …
