Frisky Friday: High Tech Sex with Mysteryvibe Crescendo *

Wow, it's been a hot minute since I've done a Frisky Friday post, ey? Today I'm going to be talking about the Crescendo from Mysteryvibe.

I was lucky enough to be gifted this at CarnLIVal back in July. Katy and Sam always come through with their amazing sex toy brands, and the Crescendo is definitely one of the quirkier toys I now own.

When Crescendo was created, they wanted to build something that adapted to everyone's individual needs. Something that adapted to people's settings and moods. Not everybody is the same when it comes to masturbation. What rocks my socks might not tickle your pickle, and Crescendo has a setting for everyone.

The Crescendo arrives straight, wrapped in a ribbon that is attached to its luxurious case. One of the most unique features of Crescendo is that fact that it can be bent into a whole host of different ways. It's long, slim, and not only is it exceptionally bendy, it also has a whopping six motors in the body of the vibrator. Impressive, right? Crescendo is very soft to touch and made of silicone, so a water-based lubricant* is essential. The silicone also seems to cling to every single tiny bit of dust that might be in the room.

The most unique thing about the Crescendo has to be the app. Available on Apple and Android app stores, the MysteryApp not only acts as a remote control but allows you to program your Crescendo with a whole host of free vibration patterns. If you can't find one that suits you, you can compose your own pattern. The remote control feature makes it ideal for partner play, or for people with limited mobility.

Not only is the Crescendo highly customisable, it comes with wireless charging. Just...what? It feels like a little insight into what sex will be like in the next century. Whack the charger into a USB port and lay the Crescendo on top of it, fin side up, and the little flashing light will indicate that it's charging. 

The only negative for me, and it's a big one, is the price point. Retailing at a cool £139, I can imagine this is out of most people's price range. As unique and cool as the Crescendo is, had I not been able to try it, I can comfortably say I wouldn't have paid £139. Although the six motors in the vibrator are powerful as shit, and Crescendo is definitely a vibrator with the user in mind, I just think the price is a little outlandish and makes it inaccessible. Don't get me wrong, I like it, but it's just too expensive for me to wholly recommend. If I had had a completely mind-blowing orgasm, the price would be a little less important to me, but in all honesty, the whistles and bells didn't make any orgasm any more intense than usual.

See what I mean about the dust?!

As much as I love the technology and how customisable the Crescendo is, the price is too much of a sticking point for me. I understand that you have to pay for the technology somehow, but it just seems to make it virtually inaccessible to an ideal market.
