Pretty Love Dylan “Come Hither” rabbit review
When it comes to sex toys, I’m always starry-eyed and swayed easily by the new and novel. Maybe to a fault.
My curiosity got the best of me when I saw the Pretty Love Dylan— a $60 G-spot vibrator that bends back and forth, like fingers beckoning, “come hither.”
Could this be an affordable and better alternative to the $150 LELO Mona Wave? I mean, it wouldn’t take much to accomplish that.
Update: since Vibrant, the shop, is now defunct, this review will link to other silicone g-spot vibrators with a “come hither” mechanism instead.
But seriously, what the fuck, LELO?
The Mona Wave‘s bullshit-boastful campaign (“The first!” To “truly” massage the G-spot! “Takes you to the limits of pleasure!”) set it up for failure— and the Mona Wave was still a disappointment.
In all fairness, an insertable sex toy flexing up and down isn’t a poor concept. But the Mona Wave’s execution was half-assed and overpriced. If it moved faster and cost less, it would be on to something.
Giving the Pretty Love Dylan a chance
While I didn’t know much about Pretty Love, I figured “move faster” was a small hurdle for them to jump.
And also, they’re part of Vibrant’s curated collection— I highly respect Vibrant as a shop, and I trust that they have wholesome reasons for stocking Pretty Love sex toys.
Indeed, even though my gimmick meter beeped, I’m not mad about trying the Dylan. The shaft’s vibrations are acceptable, the control panel is intuitive, and the “come hither” bending is quite useful. But not just for the reason you think.
Choose your level of curvature
I appreciate that I can “freeze” the Pretty Love Dylan’s position while its shaft bends. And as a result, I can have a moderate G-spot angle, a shallow A-spot curve, or anything in-between.
It’s like a microscopic sample of the customizability that the MysteryVibe Crescendo promised. But unlike the Crescendo, the Dylan’s angle can stay in place when frozen. And unlike the Crescendo’s flat body, the Dylan’s shape makes sense.
I do wish the Dylan was an internal vibrator instead of a dual stimulator, though! With the clit arm in the way, there’s only 5.3″ of insertable length— enough to reach some people’s A-spots / AFE zones, but not all.
Functions and controls
To turn the Pretty Love Dylan on, press the top button. It’s not going to start the vibration or waving motion right away, though. Both sets of functions are independently controlled. Press on the other buttons to cycle through the functions: 3 vibration speeds, 4 vibration patterns, and 4 settings for the waving.
How are the vibrations?
The shaft’s vibrations are buzzy, but I think the price is fitting. They have enough strength to get me off clitorally. At worst, the highest speed is a sometimes-irritating pitch, but the amount of power isn’t a concern for me.
That clit arm, though? 100% useless. The best thing about the external stimulator that it’s so flexible that I can push out-of-the-way and not use it at all. It lines up with my clit fine but is too flexible to apply pressure in any meaningful way while thrusting.
I’d just rather they had omitted the external stimulator. The makers could have instead invested the clit arm’s funds in better shaft motors. Notably, a faster “come hither” would take the Dylan from “meh” to “above and beyond for the price.”
How’s the finger-bending motion?
It feels pleasant. Not amazing. Just different and good. It does add something to the experience, but it’s not fast enough to get me off without adding some hand-thrusting.
In a nutshell: at its fastest, it’s marginally quicker than the Mona Wave. The robotic sound makes it seem more powerful, but seeing fingers bend at the same speed makes it obvious how slow it is. Allow Epiphora and her friends to demonstrate in this video.
Yeah. After that video, there’s not much left to say.
Overall thoughts on the Pretty Love Dylan
I would like to see this concept take off and jump that small hurdle of moving faster. Only then can I wholeheartedly give it my seal of approval. For $60, though, I’m not mad. It’s not bad as an insertable vibrator, with a little “something extra”.
If you’re looking for an affordable alternative to the LELO Mona Wave, there are some okay alternatives out there. These “come hither” G-spot rabbit vibrators move at the same speed or faster and cost way less. As they should.
I’d recommend the Dylan for:
- adding a new, mild G-spotting sensation to your toybox
- trying different shaft angles for your internal zones
- using the slow wave to warm up and thrusting to finish off
I would not recommend the Dylan for:
- anyone who wants the waving motion to be the primary source of internal stimulation
- discreet masturbation— the robotic arm movement is loud and off-putting
- people with tight pelvic floor muscles, which may dampen the motion
Where to get a silicone “come hither” G-spot rabbit vibrator
Vibrant, the shop I got the Pretty Love Dylan from, sent me this vibrator in exchange for my honest and freely given opinion. They’re no longer in business, but I do have alternatives for you below.
