The Product: OhMiBod Remote App and blueMotion Vibrator

The Verdict: (out of five)



Let me start by saying that I am not a sex toy reviewer. I am your average 30-something married woman with small kids who has an assortment of sex toys that come out for use when all the stars align. I like to think that I am somewhat adventurous in the bedroom, but I often read things or hear things that make me feel pretty "vanilla." So when Kinkly approached me to review a sex toy. I thought, why me? Then it occurred to me: I am the average sex toy consumer. So, why not me?

My adventure into the foray of sex toy reviews started more quickly than expected when the package arrived at my doorstep. I was expecting something else and it completely slipped my mind that this might be my OhMiBod blueMotion vibrator. So, I eagerly opened the package with my 7-year-old (who is quite a proficient reader) nosily standing beside me. Thankfully the packaging, although very hip and clean looking, is also very discreet. After convincing my daughter the box was of no interest to her, I quickly stowed it away for later.

The Product

The OhMiBod blueMotion vibrator is a very cool thing indeed. It includes a slim-line, wearable vibrator that is controlled via Bluetooth by using OhMiBod's Remote app on your Smartphone. (It's free, but if you want to pleasure your partner via the Internet, you'll need to make a $4.95 in-app purchase.) It has four pre-set vibration patterns to choose from, which are controlled on the vibrator itself (without smartphone). The app is compatible with iPhones, iPads, iPod Touches and Android. The vibrator also comes with a lace thong with a pocket for the vibrator to fit into, a privacy pouch and a USB charging cable. The vibrator is phthalate free and rechargeable. If you still aren't sure what this little gadget does, just imagine your partner controlling every thump of your vibrator, all the while looking like they are simply checking their phone! Discreet, fun and oh so sexy!




My Experience

As it turns out, my life isn't overly exciting because the only options I could come up with to try out my new toy while in public was at the family Mother's Day brunch or my kids' soccer practice. I decided maybe those weren't the best options. I was eager to try it though, so we pulled it out one evening at home. My experience began when my husband accidentally fired this powerful little vibe up at full speed while I was brushing my teeth. The result? A high-pitched squeal and toothpaste everywhere. Fortunately, this product is very intuitive and we quickly got the hang of things. Even so, a trial run at home is a must!


I was a bit concerned about the included blue lace thong, but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. There is a lot of elasticity to the underwear, so when they say "one size fits most" on the packaging, they are telling the truth. I am a size 8 and they fit me nicely, but I could easily see them fitting people smaller and larger than myself. They also look quite sexy and are made of a very nice material. I might even wear them without the vibrator!

The vibrator itself fits very easily and snugly into the pouch in the thong and once you know where the On button is, it's easy to turn the vibrator on, off or set it to different modes. I walked around quite a bit with the vibrator in the underwear to see how that felt and you definitely feel it, but it is in no way uncomfortable. In fact, more the opposite: The little nub on the top of the vibrator started rubbing in the just the right spot and I actually even started liking just walking around without any vibration. If you are going out and planning to use this, I suggest using the privacy pouch to take the vibrator in your purse and slipping away to put it on when you're ready for action.

After our false start, we started the vibrator up ... at a much slower speed. The app provides plenty of options for the person in control, including:

  • Different rhythm patters
  • The ability to create different vibrations by tapping the smartphone screen
  • The ability to create unique vibrations by waving the phone back and forth to adjust intensity
  • The ability to use voice or other surrounding noises/music to control the vibrator
  • Four continuous rhythm settings that can be controlled by pressing a button on the vibrator
All of the different rhythms felt good but my least favorite were the Touch and Voice settings because both of those allowed for some periods of no vibration based on how the person in control was operating the app. It turns out that I'm more of a consistent rhythm kinda gal. Thankfully, there are so many options, everyone is bound to find a few rhythms they like.


As for the intensity of the vibration, these can be controlled using the phone's volume buttons. With my phone, anything lower than 50 percent volume resulted in no vibrations. At 50 percent, the vibrations are relatively quiet but you would need some ambient noise to ensure your little secret down under stays a secret. Of course, it wasn't long before I wanted more, but once you pump the volume up over 50 percent, you definitely want to be in a place with some background noise. That said, the additional noise certainly does come with additional power. In fact, the vibrator is surprisingly powerful for its size. I don't think I could reach orgasm just by using it, but it certainly had the power to take me to a place that, had we been in public, I would have quickly needed to find some privacy.

We tested the range of the Bluetooth controls and found that we started having trouble when the distance between the vibrator and the smartphone controlling it grew beyond 12 feet. By 17 feet, the two devices lost their connection. The instructions indicate that the device has a range of approximately 15-20 feet, which appears to be consistent with our testing. That said, OhMiBod's recent Indiegogo campaign aims to eliminate this issue by adding Wi-Fi capabilities to the app, which would make it possible to pleasure your partner even when there are miles and miles between you. (Long-distance couples should consider jumping in just to get their own device!)

The vibrator arrived charged, which was very handy, although in my race to get off, I completely forgot to turn it off, which drained the battery. When I plugged it in to recharge, it only took a few hours to charge fully.

The Highs

  • Discreet packaging and wearability
  • Great selection of different rhythms and speeds
  • Easy to use - both the App and vibrator
  • Comes with a nice lace thong
  • Made from body-safe materials
  • The app can be used to control a range of OhMiBod's products (everything except the Lovelife line and Club Vibe)
  • Rechargeable

The Lows

  • Noise level on higher speeds

The Verdict

I really enjoyed this vibrator and am looking forward to trying it out again somewhere a bit more public. I would recommend it to anybody looking to add some spice into a night out. It might even be a fun way to play solo on your way to the bedroom. There's only one really big downside to the OhMiBod blueMotion vibrator and app: The only way to get your hands on one so far is to donate to the Indiegogo campaign. Here's a secret though, the required donation amount is less than the retail cost of the vibrator, so get one quick before the campaign ends and you have to pay full price! Overall, I'm giving it four hearts out of five.
