Jayne Hathaway is a feature columnist and sex toy reviewer at Sssh.com.After her long career as a burlesque performer and lecturer on post-modern feminism in and around Boston, she now lives in blissful seclusion in Vermont with her 5 Labrador Retrievers and a neurotic African Grey Parrot. When not taking care of her Llama breeding micro ranch and sugaring off maple syrup, she enjoys knitting, reviewing sex toys and writing about sex positive issues.

No relation to Nancy Kulp's character on "The Beverly Hillbillies", she indeed was the character that "Miss Jane" was based on via a chance late-night sexual encounter she had with the TV show's creator, Paul Henning (also creator of Petticoat Junction and Green Acres), in 1960 to organize the presidential campaign of John F. Kennedy.

Jayne remains a little pissed to this day for this 1961 "identity theft" by the TV studio, but is not making a big deal about it.

    by Jayne Hathaway at Sssh.com.

    Entice Grace is a G-spot vibrator. Designed with a curved and flexible shaft and bulbous head that focuses the vibrations directly onto the G-spot. This device lacks a flared base or proper handle, therefore, shouldn’t be used anally to avoid, well, you know what!

    OBLIGATORY REVIEWER DISCLAIMER:
    Cal Exotics has a Sexpert Program where items are sent free of charge in exchange for the review.  I received the Cal Exotics Entice Grace through this program, which means this item was provided free of charge in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

    JAYNE’S REVIEW EXPERIENCE:
    In the current market of high-end sex toys that do everything short of picking up your dry cleaning (at prices often well over $100), The “Grace” is a breath of fresh air for anyone that wants a good, safe and multi-featured G-Spot Vibrator that will get the job done and not break the bank.  Admittedly, I was a little disappointed in the packaging (a basic flimsy box and inside, the Grace is enclosed in bubble wrap.  Bubble Wrap? A far cry from an elegant velvet drawstring storage bag, but hey! It keeps the cost down!)

    I found the Grace to be within the acceptable range of power.  No, it won’t knock you against the headboard like a lot of modern vibrators can do, but it did have enough horsepower to light up  my G-Spot just fine and bring me to a great set of orgasms using the various diverse vibration settings.

    One nice feature is that Grace can insert up to 5.5″.  My G-Spot is fairly deep, and this was great as so many of the little compact vibrators these days simply dn’t have the insertable length to effectively hit my spot without a lot of wrist fatigue.

    I found this toy to be a little “buzzy” compared to others, so as a discreet toy in a house full of kids, it’s probably not my first choice for sneaking away for a little afternoon delight without then getting the nods and winks from the family when I re-appear in the living room.

    If the level of vibration power simply isn’t enough for someone, I suspect that using this in tandem with a little clit vibrator would be a great combination (one needing some manual dexterity, but that’s not rocket science, gals!)

    MATERIALS:
    Made of silicone, this man-made semi-organic polymer is the best of the best when it comes to soft materials. It is completely non-porous, phthalate free, and latex free. Stamped with Cal Exotics “Safe and Pure” Logo – this means that it meets European standards of not containing no more than 0.01% phthalates. Entice Grace is made from velvety soft silicone. The shaft has a faint seam, but not pronounced enough to cause any drag.

    DESIGN FEATURES:
    Entice Grace is designed like most traditional G-spot vibrators. Starts with a tapered tip to a bulbous head, then the shaft curves and gradually increases in girth until you reach the battery cap. Measuring 7.25″ long with up to 5.5″ being insertable. The bulbous head measures 4″ in circumference or 1.25″ in diameter. The largest girth can be found closer to the battery cap, which measures 5.25″ in circumference or 1.67″ in diameter. Part of the shaft is hollow, so it can be flexible and aid in reaching the G-spot of most users.

    USER CONTROLS:
    Entice Grace is powered by 2 AAA batteries.  If you quickly glance at the shaft, you won’t likely notice the buttons. They are located close to the battery cap on the inside of the curve. There are two buttons, one turns on and off the vibrator and the the other goes through the 8 functions.

    VIBRATIONS AND PULSE FEATURES:
    There are 8 functions for Grace…

    • Steady, low
    • Steady, medium
    • Steady, high
    • Throbbing pulsation
    • Chaos (my favorite!)
    • On/Off pulsation that changes speed.
    • Shaking pulsations that changes speed.
    • On/Off pulsation

    The vibrations are of moderate speed, which rates at 3 out of 5 when 5 is the highest. They are more focused on the surface. You know, the kind that is somewhat itchy and numbing. These are defined as buzzy. The vibrations focus solely in the bulb. You cannot feel them through the entire shaft. The sound is fairly quiet. There is a slight buzzing sound, but nothing that should be heard behind closed doors. I’d rate the sound a 2 out 5 where 5 is so loud you will wake the neighbors.

    CLEANING AND CARE RECOMMENDATIONS:
    Caring for silicone is simple. Do not put any motorized toy in the dishwasher or boiling pan because the heat can damage the motor. These toys should be washed the follow ways…

    • Toy cleaners
    • Antibacterial soap and thorough rinsing
    • 10% bleach and 90% water with thorough rinsing

    CONCLUSION:
    The Entice Grace is an affordable G-Spot vibrator made from quality silicon materials, but forgoes any fancy packaging and such to keep the price reasonable.  It’s a little buzzy and loud, but the ergonomics are good, and it is long enough to reach even the most deeply hidden G-Spots.  I’ll give this one a 7 out of 10 considering all of those factors!
