This review will be split up into two posts, to address the function of the Esthesia with and without the app. The link to the companion review will be linked at the end of this post.

Last week, I was rudely reminded of the fact that I was already in high school when the very first iPhone was released. The swiftly approaching end of the current decade must have people feeling nostalgic, because I’ve been seeing tweet after Tumblr post after Facebook status harking back to when the most exciting app was a fake beer bottle. I’m definitely not on the cutting edge of technology (I connected my phone via Bluetooth for the first time in May), but like most sex toy reviewers, I try to keep abreast of teledildonics news. The idea that you (or someone else!) could control a vibrator with the ease and responsiveness of a touch screen is frankly incredible. Unfortunately, most Bluetooth compatible toys focus on the ability of another person to remotely control a toy, whether from the other side to trans-Atlantic phone sex. I can’t reap the benefits of most Bluetooth compatible toys because I don’t know anyone interested in using them with me. That’s why I was so excited by Vibease’s vibrators, which are app compatible vibrators designed to sync with erotic audio stories. Drawn to the fantasy of a completely handsfree masturbation sesh, letting an audiobook set the pace, I opted for the rabbit style vibrator, the Vibease Esthesia.
