My First Vibrator: BMS Wanderlust Review

Updated: Sep 29


Introduction

Ah, where it all began. I didn't buy my first vibrator expecting it to have a huge impact on my life. Hell, I didn't even know if I'd like it. I was lucky in that, with absolutely no prior research or direction, I was able to walk into a local sex store near my college and get great advice and come out with an honestly solid toy that I still use (and it's even body safe). You can skip the story if you're not into nostalgia but for those of you interested, I'll include it.


The Story

It was a particularly dreary Sunday afternoon in New England. I has just returned to my college from the winter break and classes were starting again the next day, and I was feeling like I was stuck in a rut. I was seeing a new guy (who would be the last before I realized I was a lesbian) and felt like I was missing something in my sex life (hint: it was women but it led me to discover vibrators so I'l forgive those few regrettable months). I was having a mediocre dinning hall lunch with friends when the topic of vibrators came up. We all laughed and mused at the idea of being able to get off easily outside of sex; none of us owned any sex toys.

Perhaps my boldest friend, we'll call her Sarah for the purposes of this story, piped up and said she was fed up with men and going to the local sex store later that day and in a moment of spontaneity, I said I'd go with her. After an inappropriately-long afternoon nap, I met up with Sarah outside of her dorm room, and we walked to the sex store. Upon arrival, I was anxious but excited: somehow, that place felt like home.

Sarah and I wandered around for a half an hour before the owner of the store kindly came over and asked if we needed help (we really did). She talked to us about what we liked and disliked in previous experiences and pointed us towards some options that were affordable and non-intimidating. She rang us up and sent us on our way with complementary lube since neither of us owned any. I got back to my dorm, got to business, and knew that I had found my new favorite thing.

If it hadn't been for my overwhelmingly-positive first sex toy (and sex shop) experience, I don't think I ever would have bought another, let alone started this blog. If you've never purchased a sex toy or visited your local sex store, I highly recommend doing so (when safe given the current state of the world).


Toy Review

The Wanderlust Serenity by BMS Factory was actually an excellent first vibrator. It's built for g-spot stimulation but works well for clitoral stimulation as well with its pointed tip and slim shape. It looks similar to something like the Lelo Mona with its pointed tip leading into a middle that resembles an elongated egg and goes out into a slim and flexible neck. While I personally find the shape to be a bit streamlined for my g-spot (I prefer more of a ball or egg shape with a neck that's rigid), it's great for sitting comfortably on or between the labia to target the clitoris gently. I've been using it lately with the Icicles No. 2 Glass Wand to create a sort of dual stimulation and vibration. Serenity measures at 1.3 inches max diameter and 4.7 inches insertable length and is coated in a fairly soft body-safe silicone though it feels hard due to the internal motor (common with vibrators). It's also splash-proof which is nice because you can clean it without fear of killing the toy, (but I wouldn't recommend bringing the Serenity into the bath or shower).


The vibration in this toy is solid--especially given the price--but nothing to write home about. It has three speeds, 17 settings, and BMS's speed control where you press the pattern change button until you get to the speed of vibration you like and release. I would like to preface this statement with the note that I am not someone who ever uses patterns on vibrators. They just don't do it for me and I find them infuriating.

But for the love of God, is 17 patterns without separate buttons to go forward and backward through settings necessary? Imagine being close to orgasm with this toy on the highest speed setting (which can be a bit buzzy but still gets the job done for me) and you accidentally hit the pattern button and end up on a terrible pattern and have to turn the toy off to get back to a steady speed. This happens to me a lot. That being said, it is possible to selected and save your favorite pattern and speed which you can go back to at any time.

Okay, so, I have some grievances with this vibrator an really any vibrator with a lot of patterns. But the serenity has got some decent rumble on the first setting, a little rumble with some buzz on the second setting, and some decent strength--albeit buzzy--on the third and final speed. I personally enjoy using the Serenity more than my stronger but buzzier and more pinpoint Nu Sensuelle Joie Bullet.


Bottom Line

Overall, the Wanderlust Serenity by BMS Factory is a great beginner toy. You get a lot of options with the shape (to help figure out what kind of stimulation you enjoy) and a decent motor at a beginner price. If you'd like to purchase the Serenity, click here. Whatever your toy choices and needs may be, have a great day y'all.

I'm A. (she/her/hers), a clueless lesbian and blogger. I started this blog because I grew up in a small town where sex--especially queer sex--wasn't talked about. I was a determined youngster and managed to scrape the bottom of the internet barrel to find the information I needed (and later, the information I wanted). Now that I've learned a bit about queer pleasure in all of its forms, I wanted to create the resource I wish I'd had; a place where I could read about someone else's experiences and learn about sex from a pleasure-centered perspective. If you have a question about something or want me to cover a certain topic, just shoot me an email! Chances are, I've been there and would love to help or at least offer some moral support, and who knows, maybe others could benefit from a post about it. 

 

Stay safe, be gay, and abolish the police,
