Biird Obii review: clitoral air pulse toy

Sex toy or [overpriced] lamp? You decide.

Obii by Biird is a cli­toral suc­tion vibra­tor that’s both ADORABLE AF and award-winning! I can see why design geeks would love Obii’s exterior:

  • Its sil­i­cone is soft like a marshmallow.
  • Feminine with­out being tacky
  • Available in pink, green, and a pale lemon yellow 
    • Yellow is a super uncon­ven­tion­al choice for vibrators!
  • A min­i­mal­is­tic bird with a glow­ing “nest” and trans­par­ent, cage-like cover

You could charge this dis­creet sex toy in plain sight and claim it’s an ambi­ent lamp. Nobody would have any rea­son to think it’s a plea­sure product.

Unfortunately for Biird, what’s inside counts, too.

At this point, I resent high­ly styl­ized pres­sure wave toys as a group. Their sell­ing point is their visu­al appeal; the motors don’t live up to the hype.

The Emojibator Chickie is lit­tle more than an (endear­ing) paper­weight, for exam­ple. And I’d be damned if I did­n’t warn peo­ple of the dan­gers of using the LELO Sona 2 Cruise.

As for Obii by Biird? It feels like it was designed for users who don’t jack off even a tenth as often as I do. When you have noth­ing else to com­pare a just-“meh” prod­uct to, then, of course, you’ll think it’s decent.

Functions of the Biird Obii clitoral air pulse vibrator

The Obii by Biird is a 3‑in‑1 pack­age that excels at only one of the things it does. Let’s go deeper:

  • Its “beak” is a round­ed noz­zle for cli­toral pleasure 
  • The bel­ly of the bird vibrates.
  • When you rest it on the charg­ing base, it’s a cute night light.

This clit suck­er… sucks at the first two of those functions.

Let’s start with who its pressure waves will work for

Look, I’ve seen snip­pets of oth­er reviews of the Biird Obii, and they’re eyebrow-raising. One says that any­one with a cli­toris can enjoy Obii. Are we review­ing the same thing?

For a clitoral air pulse toy to work for you, your anatomy has to fit inside of the nozzle and seal properly.

While it worked for me, it’s worth not­ing that Obii has BY FAR the ABSOLUTE SHORTEST pulse cham­ber of any pres­sure wave toy I’ve tried. With the oth­ers, I can fit part of my pinky, usu­al­ly up to the knuck­le near­est the tip. Obii’s noz­zle can only encom­pass half that amount.

In oth­er words, if your clit is longer than a cen­time­ter, Obii won’t work well for you.

Safety concerns with the Biird Obii

Air pulse toys work by mov­ing a lit­tle nub­bin inside back-and-forth. If your junk gets caught in that, you’re shit out of luck.

And that has hap­pened to some users of the LELO Sona Cruise mod­els, result­ing in cli­toral cuts and blood blisters.

Likewise, Obii can unpleas­ant­ly bump up against some­one’s bits.

How the Biird Obii feels in use for me, in one word

Buzzy — that’s all you need to know about Obii’s pres­sure waves and vibra­tions at best. Its pitch makes me gri­mace the moment I turn it on; the oppo­site of turn­ing me on.

Pressure waves

The high-frequency air puls­es lack any sub­stan­tial range of motion. You’d get rum­bli­er cli­toral air puls­es with even the $30 ROMP Switch. Buzzy pres­sure waves are okay for a cheap­er toy that does oth­er things well. But for the Biird Obii’s price? Oh, hell, no.

Vibrations

Obii’s vibra­tions are par with cheap bul­lets like the VeDO Bam Mini. WEAK. There are three steady speeds and one pat­tern, and all of the func­tions are shit.

(See what makes a vibra­tor motor buzzy or rumbly from the inside!)

Since the move­ment is in the round­ed bel­ly, there’s no focus or tar­get­ing what­so­ev­er — the sen­sa­tion just kind of gets lost. If my boyfriend and I can’t imme­di­ate­ly tell where the motor is, that’s a bad sign.

Not even the Biird Obii’s form is its saving grace.

This vibra­tor is only a lit­tle less potato-like than the Squarepegtoys Blunt Plug. If the Obii looks cum­ber­some and bulky to hold in my hand, that’s because it is. It’s just such a blob.

Holding the Obii by Biird in my hand

For one, since the beak noz­zle does­n’t pro­trude much, it’s not the eas­i­est to aim. And yes, it’s sleek for a cli­toral suck­er and not at all thermometer-like. But I’d pre­fer to use an air pulse toy with a prop­er han­dle and easy-access buttons.

Obii by Biird isn’t for you if you have any:
  • Wrist mobil­i­ty issues
  • Belly fat block­ing access to your vulva
  • Pain in your hands
  • Struggle with grip

If any of the above applies toy you, you’ll despise Obii.

I can use it by wrap­ping my fin­gers and palm around, with my thumb on the con­trol pan­el, but it’s cum­ber­some to grip. I feel like Obii might slip out of my hands when I push its buttons.

And oh gosh, the but­tons. I get that they’re on the base for the sake of dis­cre­tion, but they’d be much eas­i­er to press on the Biird’s back.

My verdict on the Biird Obii vibrating clit sucker

The Obii cli­toral suc­tion toy by Biird isn’t abhor­rent to me, but its com­bined quirks feel like death by a thou­sand cuts. It’s not heav­en, but not quite The Bad Place — just a Medium Place. Like an after­life where you’re always just a bit miffed by the con­stant post-nasal drip snot stuck in your throat, and the tap water tastes funky.

For the price of $89, “I CAN orgasm with it” and “I’m only a lit­tle miffed” should­n’t be the only bars to clear. Even the $60 Satisfyer Pro Plus Vibration would feel bet­ter in use since its slightly-less-buzzy vibra­tions are pinpoint.

I’m not in the busi­ness of telling peo­ple to spend $89 on a tiny night-light. If giv­en a choice, I’m stick­ing to my We-Vibe Melt. If you’re try­ing to save mon­ey with­out sac­ri­fic­ing qual­i­ty, get a Womanizer Liberty or one of the ROMP air pulse toys.


If you want an Obii, you can get one directly from Biird!

I do use affil­i­ate links through­out this post, which bring me a com­mis­sion at no extra cost to you. Biird sent me this prod­uct as a sam­ple for a review.

However, I turned down spon­sor­ship mon­ey from them. With how much I dis­like their Obii, I much pre­ferred the cre­ative lib­er­ty to tear it apart.

    Whoa, sounds like they real­ly dropped the ball on this one. $89 for a toy that may injure you? No thank you!
    “Like an after­life where you’re always just a bit miffed by the con­stant post-nasal drip snot stuck in your throat, and the tap water tastes funky.” This is gold, I snort-laughed when I read it.
