XCritic's Advice: Skip It

The Odyssey Tickler comes from a line offered by a highly reputable sex toy shop. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the site or stores to anyone- but I have to ask- what were they thinking??

The Odyssey tickler comes in the same ugly, non recyclable packaging as it's G-spotting friend, the Nubby G. The Odyssey's ticklers were disfigured on one side from sitting in it's packaging. It didn't make a difference though, because I didn't notice the ticklers (we'll get to that). It's made of TPR, so a quick wash with soap and water and you're ready to go. It should be noted that TPR cannot be sanitized so it cannot be shared. But both water and silicone based lubricants are okay to use. The Odyssey is also water resistant, so a few misplaced splashes aren't anything to worry about.

It takes 2 AA batteries and has an easy to use twist cap with a rubber ring to help make it water resistant. Just be sure to always screw on the cap securely. To turn up the vibrations, simply twist the dial. The dial has a texture on it, so it's fairly easy to use even with lubed up fingers. The vibrator is okay for two AAA's and pretty quiet once inserted. The Odyssey has an insertable length of 3-1/2" and is only 1-1/5" in circumference at it's widest point.

The Odyssey really let me down as a vaginally penetrative toy, sadly. In the Bed Test, I quickly threw it aside in disgust. It's not wide enough to provide me a full feeling, not long enough to use for penetration, and the "tickler" base didn't tickle anything. It was just kind of there and the vibrations didn't transfer through it well. And even if they had, the tickler base didn't reach my clitoris in any way. So the Odyssey wasn't going to get me off, no matter how I tried.

I wanted to find a redeeming point about the Odyssey, but I really can't. A lot of penetrative toys that have good vibrators could simply be used for clitoral stimulation, but the Odyssey's shape and lack of a strong vibration really makes that option pointless. Poor packaging, poor vibes, and a poor design: I don't have much choice other than to say Skip It, despite coming from one of my favorite sex toy retailers.
