BonBon – Natural Contours

BonBon

Natural Contours is a line of discreet sex toys shaped to to fit the curves of a woman’s body. The products are designed by Candida Royalle, a well-known name in the adult industry. These vibes have intrigued me for a while now, so when stifftoys.com offered the BonBon for review, I eagerly requested it.

The BonBon is made from smooth, nonporous ABS plastic, which is phthalates-free. It’s a curved pentagon shape, measuring 2 3/4 inches long and 2 inches wide at the base, gradually tapering to a nicely rounded, 1/4-inch point. It’s very slender and around half an inch thick all around. This little vibe is also very lightweight at just under 2 ounces. It takes two AAA batteries, which are included. A water resistant sex toy, the BonBon is super easy to clean with antibacterial soap and warm water. Storage is no problem because this vibe also comes with a cool little satiny pouch, which is perfect for travel.
The packaging consists of a lovely little open-top box covered by a clouded clear plastic sleeve. So, you can see what’s inside, just not very well. There are product pictures on the sides of the plastic sleeve, as well as basic information printed on the back. Inside the box, the BonBon is nestled in a thick paper insert, with the batteries, storage pouch, and instructions (printed in several different languages) tucked underneath.

The BonBon offers four vibration options: three speeds of continuous vibration and one pulse setting. Push the single-button control once to turn it on, and keep pushing to get to your desired setting. The sequence is high vibration, medium vibration, low vibration, pulse, then off. I’m not sure why it starts with the fastest speed. This seems backwards to me, especially since in order to go up a speed you have to toggle all the way back to it. Also, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of variance in intensity between the speed settings. Sometimes I can’t tell if I’m on low or medium. The vibrations are quite nice and relatively powerful, though. They’re more on the rumbly side as opposed to buzzy, and the motor is pretty quiet. At the lower speeds, it’s not audible through the bed covers or clothes, and even at high speed you can’t hear it through a closed door.

The contoured design allows this vibe to rest on the mons pubis so the tip can stimulate the clitoris hands-free. BonBon can also be worn under clothing very comfortably thanks to its slender size and curved shaped. I was skeptical about it staying in place, especially while walking around, but it actually works really well for me. I can slip it underneath my panties, and as long as my shorts/jeans are pretty thin material, I have no trouble feeling the button to turn it on. It tends to shift around and move a little as I walk, but it doesn’t fall out, even while going up and down stairs and doing daily household chores. It also fits very easily between bodies, so it’s a convenient sex toy to incorporate into partner play and/or use during intercourse.

Apart from the awkward sequence of vibration settings, the only other thing I didn’t like was the battery compartment. For some reason, I had a very difficult time removing the small slide-off cover. While I’m glad that it fits tightly since this toy is meant to be water-resistant, I’m hoping it will get easier to remove over time. However, those are hardly serious problems, especially since the BonBon does very well performance-wise. Perfect for travel and ideal for beginners, this really is a nifty little clitoral stimulator.
