After the Rose sex toy took TikTok by storm late last year, I finally gave in to the pressure and ordered mine on Amazon. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, the Rose is a suction based sex toy that sent social media into a frenzy. The pressure was getting worser – from personal reviews to instruction videos all over my timeline, I just had to place that order. I remember seeing a video where the uploader claimed to have cum in 30 seconds with the Rose – Yes, 30 seconds!
However, not all the reviews I came across were positive. Some claimed it didn’t live up to the hype, while others claimed it was a waste of their money. I ordered mine in September 2021 and I can sincerely say it’s one of the best purchases I ever made.
Trying out the Rose
One of the reasons why I absolutely prefer toys with a sucking function – which is exactly what the Rose is all about, is because you can use them on multiple erogenous zones. The Rose is made from hypoallergenic silicone, making it safe to use on your body. So, I finally got the Rose and I remember unboxing it and feeling like it was the prettiest sex toy I ever owned. It literally takes on the shape of a rose and due to its small size, it’s very discreet. It’s also waterproof so you can use it in the shower and while taking a bath.
There are many options of the Rose you can find on Amazon, but I decided on the one with 5 star reviews of course. Amazon is full of different sellers so it is very likely that the Rose is drop shipped. It’s important to do your research before purchasing, so as to ensure you get the best quality.
So anyway, after closely examining the Rose, it was time to try it out. I was honestly excited because:
- My boyfriend had been away on a business trip so I was as horny as they come and,
- I was curious to see what the hype was all about.
Once it was fully charged, I didn’t waste any time – I used it on my clitoris before I used it anywhere else. I started off slowly testing out the different vibrations until I decided on the one that pleasured me the most. The pulsating function had me quivering. Holding the Rose in the palm of my hand, back and forth, added to the pleasure and although I tried to edge, I just couldn’t. I found myself reaching orgasm quicker than with most sex toys I’ve used in the past – and definitely quicker than most men I’ve been with.
Usually, when I reach orgasm with a sex toy, I’m ready to put it down but with the Rose, I wanted more. I came about three times on the first try and since then, the Rose has been one of my favourite sex toys. I’m hardly ever influenced to buy products from online hype but this has to be the best purchase so far. Whether you’re a sex toy beginner or an expert, the Rose will help you achieve a mind blowing orgasm. But like I mentioned prior, not all reviews about the Rose have been positive so I guess it isn’t for everyone. But if you ask me, I’d say the Rose really is a girl’s best friend.
My major issue with the Rose is how difficult it is to clean. Like I said, it takes the literal shape of a rose making it difficult to really get in there to clean thoroughly so you have to take your time while cleaning this silicone toy.
After using my Rose, I clean it with fragrance-free wipes to remove all bodily fluids, then I use fragrance-free soap and let it sit in lukewarm water (never boiling water!) for a few minutes. I opt for fragrance-free wash because scented soaps have ingredients that can interfere with your vagina’s pH balance, increasing the risk of yeast infections.
After rinsing and cleaning, I dry it with a towel and keep it neatly on my dressing table. Like I said, it’s discreet so no one will ever know.
