Back in September, I reviewed the Pipedream Fetish Fantasy Spinning Nipple Stimulators. Overall, I was happy them, especially as there are not many vibrating nipple toys that are not actually nipple clamps. I had a few minor complaints (when do I not?) but my biggest issue was that they were made with TPR, not my favorite material for sex toys.
As you know, I have become more concerned about the manufacturing of sex toys, especially the materials used. While phthalate-free TPR should be fine in theory, I am not comfortable with it enough anymore to insert it into body. However, I decided it would be safe enough to sit on top of my skin. The Spinning Nipple Stimulators had no unusual smell to indicate they were leaching chemicals, so I felt secure using them externally.
Then my friends at Queen Cat Adult Toys contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing a similar product, but one made of silicone. How could I possibly resist? Hence my review of the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators.
The Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators consist of two nipple cups that are about 3.25″ in diameter. In the middle of each nipple cup is a 1.25″ circle of soft, squishy, silicone spikes that are approximately .25″ long. Unlike the Pipedream Fetish Fantasy Spinning Nipple Stimulators, these spikes do not move, they simply transmit vibration.
On the outside of each nipple cup, right in the center, is a small, vibrating bullet embedded in the silicone. These vibrating bullets are what provides stimulation to your nipples, via the spikes. They are wired to the controller with white cables, approximately 6′ long, which provide plenty of length for movement. The bullets are not removable.
As I mentioned above, a big attraction of the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators (aside from the obvious) is that they are made of silicone. This silicone is white and about .25″ thick. It has no odor or taste and while not an awful lint magnet, the exterior of the nipple cups do attract some lint.
The packaging of the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators is in Japanese and as I know probably less than 10 words (including Happy New Year), I cannot say if the manufacturer considers this product waterproof. I’m going to call them waterproofish (totally a word).
You can get the inside of the cups as wet and soapy (not anti-bacterial) as you want when cleaning, but I would be careful around the hole in the silicone where the wires attach to the vibrating bullets and I would not submerge them. As long as you keep the exterior of the nipple cups free of lube and bodily fluids, which should be easy enough, I don’t see the need to get water that close to the wired connection.
If you feel more comfortable with spritzing the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators down with a sex toy cleaner, that is fine as well. The silicone of the nipple cups allows you to disinfect them to share amongst partners. As these are external toys you may feel less of a need to do so, but it’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye. Spray the nipple cups with a 10% bleach solution, allow them to sit for maybe an hour, then be sure to thoroughly wash off the bleach.
The Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators’ controller is made of black plastic with a silver button that turns the vibrating bullets on and off. It also allows you to cycle through the six modes of vibration. At 3.75″ long, 1.75″ wide, and just over .25″ thick, the controller is fairly large. I think there is plenty of room for a second dedicated on/off switch, which I would appreciate. Then again, that complicates the design and this is not a costly sex toy.
The size allows it to fit comfortably in my average-sized, female hands. Is has a grove along along each side that makes it easier to grip if your hands get slippery with lube and/or bodily fluids. The controller requires three AAA batteries that are not included. It also has a red LED that lights up when the nipple vibrators are turned on and flashes in time with each mode.
As I mentioned above, the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators have six vibration modes. When you turn the controller on, it always starts at mode #1. To get to mode #2 you just press the button again. Keep pushing the button until you find your preferred mode or until the Nipple Vibrators turn off. At that point, just hit the button again to start over.
The Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators’ six modes of vibration are as follows:
1. Medium steady vibration
2. High steady vibration
3. Medium pulse
4. Five medium escalating pulses*
5. Fast escalating pulses, with additional pulsing at the highest level
6. Three pulses, low, medium, and high, then fast escalating pulses like #5
The vibrations are definitely buzzy and if this were a clit vibrator, I would not be happy. However, as a nipple vibrator, the buzziness is acceptable. The Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators are very loud and can definitely be heard through a thin door. You’ll need cover music or some other noise if don’t want roommates to think you are practicing illegal dentistry in your room.
The Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators adhere readily and comfortably to the skin. You simply position the circle of spikes over your nipple and press against your breast with a bit of force. You’ll feel a slight suction as the nipple cup secures itself to your breast. Be certain both cups are securely attached before turning on the vibration or they will vibrate themselves right off.
As someone with large breasts, I think the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators has some challenges (that can be overcome). This is probably less the case for those with smaller breasts. It’s not an issue of fit, as you might guess. Obviously, the nipple cups should cover your nipples but they don’t need to cover your entire breast. It’s a matter of movement.
The larger your breasts, the heavier they are and the more they tend to shift around when you move. Even with the 6′ cord, it is possible for this movement to break the suction and yank a nipple cup right off. Multiple factors impact this situation aside from breast size. The position you are in and how much you move around can make a significant difference in maintaining the suction seal.
You also need to beware of physically knocking against the nipple cups accidentally and disturbing the seal of the suction. You probably don’t want to wear the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators when your partner is laying on top of you, rubbing against your chest. That’ll rip the nipple cups right off.
Keep in mind, we’re not talking about a nipple toy like Nipple Suckers, that force the blood to rush to your nipples and engorge them, making the Suckers unsafe to wear for very long. The Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators create a light suction against your breasts. When one disengages unintentionally during play, I only notice because there is a lack of vibration against my nipple. I don’t feel anything when the suction seal is broken. This is definitely a no pain sex toy.
I don’t recommend using any lube with the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators. It tends to make them very slippery and slide around too much, which either breaks the suction against your skin or keeps it from forming entirely. If you want to try a drop (and I mean an eency weency drop) on the spikes, stick with water-based lubricants.
The video below gives you an idea of how the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators work, but it’s mostly worth watching for entertainment value.
The one flaw I did find with my Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators is that one of the nipple cups arrived with a slight tear in the silicone, under the spikes. If I had purchased this sex toy, I would have discussed this with the Queen Cat Adult Toys. Based on my positive experience with them, I have no doubt they would address the issue appropriately.
As this was a review product, I didn’t see the need to trouble Queen Cat Adult Toys about this small defect, especially because it did not impact the performance of the Nipple Vibrators at all. Granted, it’s not the greatest first impression of a sex toy manufacturer ever, but I’ve received defective HDMI cables, mis-sized shoes, and faulty computer components (amongst other items) ordered online. It happens.
I find the packaging of the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators very interesting, at least the outer box. Inside the box, the Nipple Vibrators and control unit sit in a plastic tray inside a plastic ziploc-style bag. I recycled the tray and just store them in this bag.
Back to the box. On the front is a Japanese girl wearing the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators on her small breasts. I love the hot pink speech bubble over one of the nipple cups, as if it is actually saying something. It probably would amuse me far less if I could read the Japanese.
On one side of the box is a visual representation of all six modes. Though I don’t entirely agree with how they’ve depicted “Step 5″ and “Step 6″, I love that this is included on the box. It’s obviously very helpful for people who don’t speak Japanese, comme moi.
The back of the box also has a contribution. At the base, it provides three step instructions on how to apply the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators, both written and pictorial. Again, I appreciate the images for those of us who do not speak Japanese or are just more visually-oriented learners.
These directions, along with the mode depictions on the side of the box, are the only included instructions. Apparently, Japanese manufacturers expect most adults to already know how to insert batteries into electronic devices. Fair enough. Of course, I must draw attention to the (possible) lack of information regarding cleaning the nipple cups and the best type of lube to use with this product. Then again, this may be on the packaging and I just can’t read it.
Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators Pros:
• Fairly strong vibrations
• Different patterns
• Easy to use controller
• Good visual information on box
Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators Cons:
• No dedicated on/off button
• No batteries included
• *Small tear in one cup
*I’m sure this is not typical
First of all, it’s fantastic when someone contacts me and asks if I want to review a sex toy. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Second of all, the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators is a solid and relatively unique nipple toy. I really enjoy nipple stimulation and I don’t always want a side of pain with my order, as with nipple clamps. I greatly appreciate having other options.
I am also happy that these Nipple Vibrators are made of body-safe silicone. People who care about chemical leeching want nipple stimulation too! Though the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators’ vibrations are on a level of buzziness I would never accept in a clit vibrator, my nipples are less picky and are just fine with them. I also really like their power.
The biggest downside of these Nipple Vibrators for some people may be their loudness. They rival some of my loudest traditional vibrators. Unless someone is literally sitting outside my window or backdoor, this is a non-issue for me. I’d like to see a dedicated on/off button, but we’re talking six modes here not 17, so it isn’t a big deal.
I’m not lowering my rating of the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators due to the small tear because it’s an inexpensive item and random defects can happen in any product line.
While I savor the additional stimulation provided by the Pipedream Fetish Fantasy Spinning Nipple Stimulators, I much prefer the silicone of the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators. They also attach and remain on my breasts better than the Spinning Nipple Stimulators, perhaps due to the lack of spinning.
My only caution with this product is breast size and how active you plan to be while wearing the Nipple Vibrators. The smaller your breasts, the more you can likely move around with these on. The larger your breasts, the more issues you will have with weight and movement, so you may need to focus more on remaining still. If your breasts are large enough for you to understand what I mean, I am talking to you.
Bottom line: For good nipple stimulation without any pain or discomfort, the Nipple Development Japanese Nipple Vibrators are a good buy, especially at their price point. By the way, Queen Cat Adult Toys has them on sale today and tomorrow so now is a good time to pick up a pair!
