Hot Octopuss Digit rumbly finger vibrator & Jett penis vibrator review

[Image: The Hot Octopuss Digit is a silicone-covered vibrator mini-vibe with an S-shaped loop to wear around your fingers. The Hot Octopuss Jett comes with a control panel, silver chromed plastic bullets that plug in, and a detachable silicone cock ring attachment with slots to fit the bullets into. It delivers vibrations to the penis.]

Some may find this review blas­phe­mous. Others may con­sid­er it par with Upworthy-style click­bait. What I'm about to tell you about the Hot Octopuss Jett and Digit MIGHT BLOW YOUR MIND. You MUST KNOW MY TRUTH. From here on out, I'm rec­om­mend­ing one of these two mini-vibes along­side the We-Vibe Tango for most users. Read on to find out which one.

Hot Octopuss's rumbly AF vibrations

Hearing the rich, low thrum of the Hot Octopuss Digit is enough to turn me on. I'm in awe seeing the Hot Octopuss Jett Bass bullet's splash in a glass of water. Both vibra­tors have some rad­i­cal jump— the elu­sive com­bi­na­tion of low pitch and high ampli­tude. They're both petite, but they aren't mere­ly good for being tiny or for the price tag or "Well, I liked it, but I didn't love it, but you might." No, no, no, no, no. There is lit­tle ambiva­lence about their pow­er here.

The Hot Octopuss Digit is an ele­gant, wear­able fin­ger vibe, but more impor­tant­ly, one of the best recharge­able bul­lets I've ever tried. Its purring tim­bre is com­pa­ra­ble to larg­er vibes like the Pillow Talk Sassy. Meanwhile, the Jett's motor is the rum­bli­est among the AA-powered. And, with the sil­i­cone cock ring sleeve, it's my ex's favorite penis vibe. (Yes, he likes it more than the Hot Octopuss Pulse III Solo.)

It's not that the Hot Octopuss Digit and Jett don't have their down­sides. The Digit is designed for right-handed use only. (UPDATE: Hot Octopuss has released a bul­let with­out the fin­ger loop, and it's $10 less! Check out the Hot Octopuss Amo, espe­cial­ly if you're left-handed.) And it isn't as pow­er­ful as the Tango (in part because there's sil­i­cone coat­ing the sur­face). But it's close enough that I don't give three fucks about four fucks. It's pow­er­ful, rumbly, and has some­thing that the Tango and its budget-friendly alter­na­tives pre­vi­ous­ly: a three-button con­trol inter­face to con­trol its five speeds.

I'm very much some­one who likes turn­ing the inten­si­ty down and back up between orgasms. You don't have much con­trol over that with the We-Vibe Tango's one but­ton or the FemmeFunn Bougie Bullet's TWENTY (!!!) set­tings. It's not always easy to tell which but­ton is the up or down on the Blush Novelties Exposed Nocturnal.

UPDATE: The new We-Vibe Tango X and Touch X mod­els have updat­ed con­trol pan­els, also with three but­tons! So both the Tango X and Hot Octopuss Amo are great, but it ulti­mate­ly depends on what kind of ver­sa­til­i­ty you'd rather have:

  • For vibrat­ing dil­dos with bul­let cav­i­ties, get the Tango X
  • For a ver­sa­tile stand­alone clit vibe, get the Hot Octopuss Amo 

With the Hot Octopuss Digit, there are three but­tons. One, you long press to turn on/off, or quick press to cycle through the five pat­terns. On the oth­er side, there's a but­ton for increas­ing and one for decreas­ing speed. Similarly for the Jett. One on/off/cycle but­ton. Up and down but­tons for both the Bass and Treble bul­lets. Five but­tons in total. Five speeds for each bullet.

UPDATE: the Hot Octopuss Amo has the same fan­tas­tic con­trol pan­el, but with­out the restrict­ing fin­ger loop!

"Treble and Bass"?????

Maybe you also side-eyed at the cap­i­tal­iza­tion of "Treble and Bass Technology." All it means is that the Hot Octopuss Jett comes with one rumbly bul­let and one rel­a­tive­ly buzzy bul­let. Let me start by say­ing that the Bass bul­let is about enough to make me squirt, which is rare for any vibra­tor, let alone a bat­tery bul­let. As well, I think the video of the Bass bul­let in water speaks for itself; it splash­es almost as much as the We-Vibe Tango. So to me, the Hot Octopuss Jett is worth it for the Bass bul­let alone. Even if you nev­er use the cock sleeve or the Treble bullet.

And if you do? My ex test­ed it by wrap­ping the ring around his frenu­lum. The result: he said that if he could come via vibra­tions on his penis alone, the Jett would have done it. (But he can't. He still needs to com­bine it with some rub­bing.) It isn't as rumbly as the Pulse III Solo's oscil­lat­ing plate, but that's okay. The Hot Octopuss Jett is still pow­er­ful, and for some users, its ring design allows for hands-free orgasms.

As for the Treble's vibra­tion qual­i­ty, I did say "rel­a­tive­ly" buzzy. It's some­where between the FemmeFunn Bougie Bullet and Blush Exposed Nocturnal. And FemmeFunn's bul­lets are often includ­ed in lists of alter­na­tives to the Tango. So the Hot Octopuss Jett's Treble bul­let is still pow­er­ful, just not the deep­est; it has a sharp zing to it. In total, between the two bul­lets, there are ten inten­si­ties, with many vari­a­tions on the rumbly-to-buzzy axis.

Downsides of the Hot Octopuss Jett

I would con­tin­u­ous­ly gush over the fact that there are so many options. But unfor­tu­nate­ly, there's a dis­claimer: if I don't grip the Treble bul­let hard dur­ing use, it's also loud above the third speed. Not a buzzing loud, but a rat­tling loud like some­thing is hit­ting the inside of the hard plas­tic shell. I rarely use the buzzy bullet's high­er set­tings, but the sound might be a deal­break­er for you.

My verdict on Hot Octopuss's Jett and Digit

I'm will­ing to over­look the down­side for the pow­er, range, and ver­sa­til­i­ty of the oth­ers. If you're new to sex toys, the Hot Octopuss Jett is excel­lent for cal­i­brat­ing how much and what kind of vibra­tion pow­er you need. There's some­thing for almost every­one. (Other vibes with remark­able inten­si­ty range to con­sid­er are the Pillow Talk Sassy and Pillow Talk Cheeky.) If you want a recharge­able and water­proof penis-oriented vibra­tor that doesn't cost much more, though, check out the Hot Octopuss Pocket Pulse instead.

And of course, if you're won­der­ing whether you should get the Hot Octopuss Digit, my answer is a resound­ing YES!!! maybe, but con­sid­er the Hot Octopuss Amo first. That one is a resound­ing yes.

If you want a rumbly AF but com­pact vibra­tor that fits com­fort­ably between bod­ies dur­ing part­ner play, yes! Practically any sex toy can be a cou­ples' toy, but I think the Digit's ring design serves that pur­pose excep­tion­al­ly well. It yields the free­dom of a hand­held bul­let (no position-prohibitive bulk) with­out actu­al­ly hav­ing to hold on to one. And with­out sac­ri­fic­ing much pow­er— it's sub­stan­tial­ly rum­bli­er than both Pom and Kip by Dame Products.

UPDATE: The Hot Octopuss Amo com­bines what I love about the Digit's rum­ble and the Kip's sharp shape.

It speaks vol­umes that I'm shout­ing about two exter­nal vibra­tors from the same com­pa­ny. I am a cer­vi­cal orgasm con­nois­seur, lover of deep pen­e­tra­tion. And frankly, I find out­ie vibes to be the most straight­for­ward but most bor­ing cat­e­go­ry to review. Hot Octopuss's new vibra­tors, though? Intuitive con­trols, robust vibra­tions, and inno­v­a­tive designs that don't try too hard. They're so refresh­ing to reach for recre­ation­al orgasms— an oasis on days I oth­er­wise feel unin­spired or over­whelmed by my review queue.

    Hi! Thanks for the review. Would you rec­om­mend the hot octo­pus dig­it if I were to use it dis­creet­ly in a room shared with oth­ers?… Or is there anoth­er lay on vibe you'd rec­om­mend as both pow­er­ful and on the qui­eter side? I've looked at some of your oth­er reviews for fun fac­to­ry laya, noc­tur­nal bul­let, dame pom, le wand, fem funne, wevibe… but I still can't decide which one will be most trav­el friend­ly in a less pri­vate set­ting, but still sat­is­fy­ing? 🙂 Thanks for any help!
