Sensuelle Point

What’s the meaning of this? I want to speak to someone in charge. You do NOT try to impersonate the greatest bullet vibe ever made without bringing your A game. The Sensuelle Point looks a lot like it’s trying to be a We-Vibe Salsa and if you didn’t see a size comparison, you might think it was one. I admit, the resemblance is what piqued my interest. That and the claim, “it’s a new breed of bullet that will redefine what a good bullet is.” Does the Point bring it? Yeah, sort of… but it’s still not going to replace my Salsa. Then again, I do have an unnatural obsession with that thing.

The Point is one surprising little powerhouse, I will give ’em that. I actually jumped a little the first time I turned it on. It surprised me how powerful it was. So, I wouldn’t say they’re embellishing on their claim that it’s powerful. Well, if it’s so powerful then why doesn’t it measure up to my Salsa? It’s the pitch of the vibration. By that I mean, is it surface level buzzy or does it penetrate deeply with a rumbly vibration? That’s where the big difference is for me. The Salsa is rumblier and therefore, it feels better to me. I really can’t judge the Point without comparing it to the Salsa. On it’s own, I think it’s a great bullet but if I have to choose, it’s going to be the Salsa every time, unless the battery is dead and in that case, the Point is a very good substitute. Still, the vibration isn’t quite as rumbly and it makes me numb more than the Salsa does.

What I find interesting is that unlike most vibrators I’ve tried, I don’t like this one set on high. Again, I think it’s the pitch of the vibration coupled with the intensity. It’s just ever so slightly on the buzzy side but not terribly so. However, with the impressive intensity of it on high, it just feels a bit overwhelming to me. If it were a deeper, lower pitch vibration I think I would love it on high but it works best for me on medium. Low really does feel quite good but it’s just not intense enough to bring me to orgasm.

If you like patterns then the Point is definitely for you. It has 17 of them plus the 3 levels of steady vibration. It’s all a bit much for me. Too many to scroll through to find the one you want and since it just has one button, if you go past the one you want, you have to start all over again. That’s fine though, because I’m not the biggest fan of patterns anyway and rarely venture beyond the steady vibration modes of any vibe. The Point does have one pattern that I really do like though and it’s the 15th one (I think), which feels kind of like a flutter but since I have to scroll through so many others to get there, I don’t really use it. The time spent getting to the mode I want can be all it takes for me to lose my mojo and that’s another reason why I tend to linger in steady vibration land.

sensuelle point details

What’s it made of? Good question. The manufacturer’s website says it’s “twice dipped in silicone” but it really looks and feels a lot more like PU coated plastic and the instruction sheet says it’s ABS with no mention of silicone.  It also doesn’t attract lint AT ALL, unlike most silicone. Either way, both materials are nonporous, phthalates free and body safe. The discrepancy is just strange. It does have a really nice soft silky feel with very little drag. It can be washed in antibacterial soap and water or you could use a toy cleaner.  To sanitize it, you can wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution.

The instruction sheet warns you against wetting the “base of the bullet” and the box says it’s “water resistant”.  I interpret this to mean that unfortunately, this vibe is only splash-proof, which means you can’t submerge it.   However, another reviewer had contact with the company and was told that the bullet actually is fully waterproof and that the instruction sheet was referencing the charging base and not the “base of the bullet” (which is what it actually says).  Make of that what you will.  So of course, if it is in fact only splash-proof, you can’t use it in the bath but you could probably get away with using it in the shower.  The instruction sheet says water and oil based lubes can be used. If this is PU coated plastic (and I really do think it is) then I don’t see any reason you couldn’t use silicone-based or hybrid lube.

Tip: Put a little lube on the bullet before you insert it.

The Point measures 3.5” long and .84” in diameter. I thought for sure that it would be too big to fit into the bullet cavity of Tantus vibrating dildos but it does.1 In fact, it seems to slide in and out easier than the Salsa/Tango. The end does stick out a bit but it’s totally useable, just not in a harness. The vibration does travel nicely through the Tantus silicone.

I actually like the Point’s charger better than the one you get with the Salsa/Tango. The charger for the Salsa/Tango is kind of fiddly and sometimes you have to carefully lay it down just right to keep the connection between the charger and vibrator. The Point sits down in its charging base and I think this configuration works much better. The charging base has kind of a cheap feel to it but if you treat it gently, you probably won’t have any problems. You push the Point down into the base and twist it around until the contacts line up and the light on the charger will start flashing green and red to let you know it’s charging. When it’s fully charged the light will glow steady green. It takes 4 hours to fully charge and that yields 1 hour of run time. The Point is USB rechargeable and surprisingly, an outlet adapter is included for when you don’t want to charge it through your computer. I think it is very cool that they included the adapter, most companies don’t.

The purple in that picture looks nothing like the one I have.

The Point comes in four colors – pink, purple, black and silver (which obviously isn’t silicone dipped).   A white, branded storage pouch is included. Novel Creations’ website indicates that their products have a one year warranty but I can’t find any mention of it on the packaging or the instruction sheet.

I think the Sensuelle Point is a good buy. I have no problem recommending it. If you can only buy one bullet, I’m going to tell you to get a We-Vibe Tango (because the Salsa has been discontinued) but if you’re looking for something sort of similar but a little different, this is a nice one to add to your collection. It is surprisingly powerful and definitely beats most other bullets out there and it is a bit more affordable than the Tango. However, with the new and improved Tango hitting the stores, you’re probably going to find some good deals on the original one soon.

About PeepShow Toys:
PeepShow Toys is a new shop on the scene but they’re not new to selling sex toys.  Having sold sex toys on Ebay for 10 years, they decided it was time to create their own site.  They sell only body safe toys and we can never have too many shops like that.

“Here at PeepShow, we think it quite unfortunate that sexual pleasure is something stigmatized in our society, and it is our goal to try to change that, one vibe at a time.”

PeepShow Toys provided the Sensuelle Point in exchange for an unbiased review.

  1. I tested the fit with the Tantus G-spot Vibe and Echo and it was fine but I’ve been told it doesn’t fit in other toys with bullet cavities.  So, you probably don’t want this bullet if that’s how you intend to use it.

  • Property Of Potter

    The bullet actually is waterproof, the paperwork that says to not wet the base, actually means the base of the charger, not the bullet. I thought the same thing at first, but was corrected by someone from Novel Creations.

    Sounds like you and I had similar experiences. 🙂

    • The box says “Water Resistant”. And the sheet really does say “base of bullet”. Probably should have said charging base. Did they have any explanation for the twice dipped silicone claim?

      • Property Of Potter

        I know, I called it water resistant in my review and this was a part of the email I received after:

        “I read your write up and appreciate the honesty. All in all I think we got a positive review. One thing I noticed with the write up ,was that you mentioned that the bullet is only water resistant. That is incorrect,the bullet is totally waterproof. If you can change this it would be appreciated.”

        He didn’t mention anything about the silicone claim, just that it’s not actually water resistant.

  • Looks like I’ll be skipping this one, but woah, 17 patterns? Really? Did nobody think ‘maybe 17 is overkill considering there’s only one button’?

    • Why skip it?

      • I’m really picky with bullets as the shape doesn’t really work for me, they’re too small – the only one I use on a regular basis is my Mia and I mainly use my Tango as an accessory (inside a harness, as a replacement for the bullets that come with Tantus dildos & their Little Secrets vibes, etc) so I’d probably buy this, use it twice and then forget about it!

        • Oh, OK. I was wondering if it was something I said. Because I do think it’s a good toy and I think I might like it better than the Mia 2.

          • Oh no, you made it sound really good, I just know I wouldn’t use it due to personal preference etc. I’m glad you like it though, it’s always nice to hear about good not-buzzy bullets.

  • 17 patterns?

    ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME.
    Nope. No thanks. That kills it for me. Unless of course if you turn it off it resets to the lowest power level (Tango picks up where you left off)

    • What, too many? 😀
      I probably should have mentioned that it does always start on low steady.

      • Ok that’s not AS awful but still. I’d get irritated with having to turn it off every time I skip past a setting. Which would be half the time.

  • Heaven

    Sounds like I will stick to my Salsa too and I have a Tango for backup thank god.

  • Camryn Jones

    I want it out of curiosity and because it comes in silver. So pretty! And, y’know, because it looks like a rocket on its charging base *grins*
    Thanks to you and Potter I don’t expect another Salsa, so I can enjoy this for what it is.
    I think 17 patterns is way too many for any toy, but my partner likes patterns so he will probably get a kick out of the wide variety.

    • Hey, it does look like a rocket. Yeah, 17 patterns is excessive. If you just like steady vibration it’s not bad though because those are the first three settings and when you press and hold to turn it off, it always restarts at the low steady setting. So, that’s just a few clicks.

  • Pretty Boy Toy Box

    It’s ridiculous how much I want one of these now despite already having a Salsa, just out of weird curiosity and because I love silicone-feeling plastic toys so damn much. Seriously, if my Salsa was coated it would be much closer to being my favorite toy.

    • The finish on the Point does feel really nice. Very soft and almost no drag.

  • Wow. I didn’t want to create any expectation for this toy as it was trying to imitate Salsa, but it looks pretty ok from the looks of it! But 17 patterns…and one button. I think I will lose my horniness before I even find the vibration I like…

    • Yeah, scrolling through all of the settings can be a pain but if you mainly just like steady vibration then it’s OK because you’re only dealing with the first three settings.

      • Yeah, I generally only use the speeds, so it works just fine, I understand what you said though about the 3rd one being overwhelming for some folks. I love it but I know that it might be a bit much…

  • Fodra Sun

    This does seems like a really cool toy, although they need to use different control scheme if they want to use that many patterns. My biggest reason for wanting the tango is so I have a strong toy that can replace crappy bullet vibes, that doesn’t require obscure batteries, like my Rocks Off bullet does. I’m not sure this will work for that since I’ve heard with some toys, even the tango can be a tight fit.

  • FieryRed

    Thanks for writing this up – sounds like a decent toy, providing it really is silicone-coated. Does it feel static-y at all, by the way, when you stroke it? I find that all my silicone dildos do…

    • I really believe it is plastic with a PU coat not silicone coated. Still a decent little vibe but I wouldn’t choose it over the Tango.
