b-vibe Vibrating Jewel Plug: Sex Toy Review
The b-vibe Vibrating Jewel Plug is backdoor bling that will get you buzzing!
The Verdict: 5 Kinkly Hearts out of Five
The b-vibe Vibrating Jewel Plug is a new product from the brand that has made a name for itself specializing in anal sex toys for people of all anal play comfort levels.
The vibrating jewel plug comes in four colors (pink, teal, purple and emerald green) with a matching crystal on the end. The base with the gem is quite large (1.8" in diameter) which is important for anything that goes up the bum (things without a wide base can get sucked into your excretory tract and warrant a hospital visit to remove.)
The bonus to such a sizable end is that even if you have a fairly curvaceous rear end, it still shows in every position as opposed to some smaller plugs I’ve seen that only show when you bend over and spread your cheeks. I suppose there might be something to be said for the element of surprise, but I prefer my sparkles to be flagrant.
How Did You Use It?
When it comes to anal play, I would say I am like a lot of people; I think it's fine. It's not my go-to, but once in a while, sure. I've had a couple amazing experiences, a handful of "ok" and one experience with an over-eager partner that was Not. Very. Chill. (Note to everyone: You gotta go slow. Not everything is a porno.)
Of the various toys and appendages I've entertained 'round back over the years, butt plugs are not among them.
But I'm always open to new things and when something this adorable comes across your path...well, let's say I was helpless to avoid temptation! Did I mention SPARKLES?
I’m rocking the single life these days, so I tried out the b-vibe Vibrating Jewel plug on my own a few ways. I got myself all hot and bothered, lubed up and popped that bad boy in. Then I played around with the controls to decide which pattern and intensity felt best. Another time I used it with a clitoral vibrator (turns out vibing in stereo is too much vibration for me!) and I tried just wearing it around the house doing chores like some kind of slutty Cinderella. Best so far is when I wore it while I read my favorite erotica then sent some flirty messages to my crush.
How Else Could It Be Used?
Some people enjoy the feeling of wearing a butt plug just on its own. Some do it to ready their body for anal penetration with something larger, or as an indication of submission to their dominant partner. You can really capitalize on the power exchange with the Vibrating Jewel by handing over the remote to your Dom and being buzzed at their will.
You can also use it as a “bonus” to your other sexual exploits. Some like to use it when giving or getting a handjob or during p-in-v sex. A butt plug compresses your vaginal wall and makes vaginal sex feel tighter, and enhances the sensation of oral sex, particularly if your partner taps or wiggles the plug while going down. The joy of this b-vibe plug is that it does this plus vibrates.
The Vibrating Jewel comes in two sizes: small/medium and medium/large. I opted for the smaller size, which is still a not-inconsiderable 1.45” at its widest diameter. The stem of it, where your anus will close around if you are wearing it for any length of time, is a much more manageable half inch diameter, but you still have to stretch over the widest part to get to there. For reference, the Odile Anal Dilator starts at 1 inch and other beginner plugs can be found in Kinkly Shop with a diameter of 1 inch. Believe me, that .45 inch makes a big difference when it comes to your b-hole.
There are six levels of intensity and 15 vibration patterns. I found the higher intensity to be too much. Whether due to my anatomy or what, I don’t know, but I felt like the strongest vibrations were at a frequency that rattled my spine in a very unpleasant way. The lower ones though...Oh daddy! They were just fine!
The vibrator motor in the plug has the additional benefit of giving it a bit of weight which was a bonus during extended wear, the solid feeling was a strong physical reminder of my kinky secret bling.
Speaking of extended wear, I would have to say this is a great one for that. The stem of the plug is pliable, meaning you can sit down and move around easily. The bulbous end was large enough that I didn't have to clench when I walked. I liked the vibrations for giving my sexy sessions a boost into the stratosphere, but for just wearing around, I found the vibrations weren't necessary.
Worth mentioning too, the plug is very, very quiet. It was slightly louder at higher intensities, but even in a quiet room I could barely hear it under a blanket.

How it Works
The b-vibe Vibrating Jewel is very simple to use. The plug itself has one button. It powers the plug on and off as well as varies the pattern if you would rather do it that way than use the remote. The remote also has a power button plus three additional controls: vibration intensity up, vibration intensity down, and vibration pattern. There is a travel lock to stop it from inadvertently getting turned on which you can engage or disengage by holding the button on the plug for 5 seconds or by holding both the intensity control buttons on the remote for three seconds.
Having the option to hand the remote over to relinquish control is something I really like in a sex toy, although I will say dialing the vibrations in just right took a bit of experimentation and would be tough with another person.
Unlike toys that rely on an app to control things remotely that show the user exactly the pattern and speed the toy is on, toys that have a regular button remote don't. So the controller has to remember how many times they have clicked which button or the person wearing the plug must be able to direct them.
Generally, dialing the intensity up to 11 is a safe bet for me, but with the b-vibe Vibrating Jewel, about halfway was the magic spot. Lower and it wasn't enough, higher, and the frequency felt like it was shaking my spine from the inside. Not too much makes me say "red light" but that did. It didn't hurt, it was just jarring to an unbearable degree.
My only other complaint (and I really don’t have many about the Vibrating Jewel plug) is that it would have been nice if the plug remained on the setting I had it at when I switched it off. Everytime you turn it on, it starts at the beginning of the cycle and you have to fiddle to get it back to your favorite.
