Hustler had been a trendsetter in adult entertainment for longer than most women in porn have been alive, the longevity of the company due in part to the way it evolves over time. There is a large market for dirty smut of all sorts so it came as no shocker that the company would commission a line of sex toys branded with their name, my belief that future toys improve over time with consumer input such as what you will find in reviews like this one. My latest reviews of the Rebel Rocket, Bang Bang Bullet, Naughty Pom Pom, and the 7" Rocker Vibe all had one thing in common; they were designed to sexually stimulate a woman rather than a man, my latest acquisitions of the Buzzing Bear and Buzzing Blossom, providing something new, toys that conceivably stimulate both partners at the same time.

The Buzzing Bear and Buzzing Blossom are essentially the same toy (hence the combined review), the Bear in blue while the Blossom is pink colored. Both are cock rings with nubs that also have a small bullet vibrator attached at the base, tentatively to hit your partners' clitoris as you thrust into her. The inside diameter of the phthalate free devices measured about 1" but stretched out much more (though not nearly as much as my Rock The Cock Ring did) so if Lexington Steele, Shane Diesel, or any other genetically gifted male wants to use one, they will be able to with relative ease. Each uses two 1.4 volt watch batteries (model 312) that come with it (attached to the underside of the top cover; don't toss the cylindrical plastic case away before retrieving them), and while there was no claim they were "water proof", under normal usage, their holders should keep any moisture out. A quick 5 minute test showed no water seeping into the battery compartment when attached to the cock rings on either of them, I did not try them outside of the holders.
The up side of the toys was that each produced a modest vibration, not quite as strong as the Gossip Ring but lasting over 30 minutes each. For that matter, you could use both of these much like that toy by wearing it on your finger but at least it is rated as waterproof for the purpose of the 30 day limited warranty. It was made in China and was not as restrictive as the Rock The Cock Ring, but getting positioned to where the vibrator could effectively work on Nadine's clitoris was tricky, the missionary position certainly not her favorite one to work with even if it does have various benefits.
As a mild enhancement though, they worked enough to elevate the rating a notch to Recommended, particularly if you like cock rings and are willing to explore alternative uses such as directly stimulating your partner with the devices in your hand. The price for either toy was better than some of the cheesy looking competition, though I admit that only a guy secure in his manhood should consider wearing a pink cock ring with a flower on it or a blue teddy bear. Nadine prefers stronger vibrators for solo work and this was better for her stimulation when used during foreplay on my finger but as another couple of "beginner" toys from Hustler, they might help open up various new possibilities for couples, just don't leave them on too long lest you run the risk of damaging your cock (and for the record, I saw no difference in how they impacted my ejaculation of genetic juice but some folks claim cock rings help them shoot further).
