I've reviewed a handful of Evolved vibrators now. I've been at least
satisfied with most. Only one truly disappointed me, and that's simply
because the first one I received wouldn't turn on, and the second one
died very quickly after receiving it. It was a part of the True Love
Edition line, so when I was given the chance to review the French Kiss,
I jumped on it. Third times a charm, right?
All Evolved toys come in very classy tins that either have hinges on
the side, or like the Waterproof French Kiss, has two snaps at each
end. They hold the container closed very well and work very well to
store the toy in. They are well padded with foam that has a satiny feel
Immediately out of the box and I notice the phthalates free TPR this
toy is made from has gathered a noticeable amount of black specs from
the packaging. A lot of rinsing and I manage to get it off. The
material can be used with both silicone and water based lubricants. It
cannnot be sterilized so it should not be shared. Cleaning can be done
with mild soap and water.

The French Kiss runs on two AA batteries. There are three levels of
vibration: Low, Medium, and Very High. The vibration is smooth most of
the time, but does change slightly now and then. It doesn't slow down
or pulse, but rather, just seem to glitch and then resume. It's quite
strange. The two AA batteries provide a lot of power, but also on the
highest setting, a lot of noise. If you have thin walls and thin doors,
you'll want to skip this vibrator unless you don't mind housemates
knowing exactly what you're up to.
A very nice feature of the French Kiss is that you can take it in the
tub or shower- yep- it's waterproof! I tested it myself in the shower
and can report no water got into the battery cartridge. Just make sure
to twist the cap on tight to put pressure on the O-Ring. The French
Kiss has the vibrator positioned towards the tip. It diffuses the
vibrations throughout the entire shaft well. The bulbs feel amazing on
the vaginal walls slipping in and out. If this toy had a clitoral
stimulator or were curved for g-spot stimulation: it'd be a real home
run. But it stands up well to my demands as a straight vibrator, it
just won't get me off on penetration alone.
I recently reviewed the Minuetand I have to say the French Kiss is very similar, same material, same
motor. The differences are the Minute comes to a point where the French
Kiss has a curved bottom. I prefer the curved bottom as you're not as
likely to bump it during use. And while the Minuet has a nice texture,
the more prominent bulbs on the French Kiss stand out more and provide
much more vaginal stimulation.
Overall the French Kiss is a better vibrator from Evolved compared to
the similarly styled Minuet. If the vibrator were quieter, it'd be much
more user friendly, but still makes a decent option for both beginners
and those who know exactly what they want. I'm saying recommended.
