Review: OVO S1 Lay-On Vibrator

ovo s1 lay-on vibrator review my tickle trunk

The OVO S1 is a lay-on vibrator, and the first I’ve ever owned. I was really excited because I had two thoughts when I first heard about the existence of lay-on vibrators:

  1. “Wait. I’m not the only one who sometimes masturbates while laying on my stomach?”
  2. “There are vibrators JUST for that? I need one!”

From what I can tell, it’s the select few who are able to jack off face-down, and I get it. This particular position stems from my childhood when I didn’t know what I was doing or why lying on my hands down there felt good. As I got older, I knew what I was doing, but I knew it was not how women touched themselves in mainstream media, so I thought I was weird. Just seeing the existence of a lay-on vibrator confirmed that I wasn’t alone, and I wanted to know if this style would actually enhance this position of masturbation.

I’ll be honest; I have no idea how this is a lay-on vibrator more than any other clitoral-shaped vibrator. In fact I would argue it is less so due to the flexible silicone tip that I think is meant for precise pinpoint stimulation, but with no efficient way to apply force. Taking it out of the storage-suitable box was lovely in a delivering such a delicate and pretty toy in white with chrome flourishes. But looking at the shape of it and where the vibrations were concentrated around confused me; it was the very rare time that I consulted the instruction manual, looking for a bit of guidance. I had no idea how it was meant to be used as a lay-on vibrator, and I’m still taking suggestions on the off-chance that I’m using it all wrong.

However, the vibrations are SO buzzy, that for me, this tickles. I turn it on and it enthusiastically buzzes to life before quickly calming down to the “low” setting, but applying the vibrating point to the clitoral is stabby, and the silicone is so unsupported and flexible that I can’t press down on it at all (which I’d like to do).

So I took a different approach: broad stimulation. Since the vibrations seem to run exclusively through the flexible silicone tip, these appear to be the only two options available. I pressed the entire underside of the tip onto my clitoris, and I’ll say that this yielded much better results. But now that I had some stimulation I could live with, I was confronted with the big chrome bulb under my hand. I couldn’t very well cup it in my hand and lay down because now I had this lump pressing into my pubic bone. I did try reversing it so that the bulb rested on my vulva (maybe it provides further stimulation?) but to no avail. I was able to orgasm over a few different sessions, but the vibrations just didn’t force me to an earth-shattering good time, and it all had to be done while lying on my back. I guess it’s my fault; I presumed the “lay-on” meant facedown, but they never did specify a direction, did they?ovo s1 lay-on vibrator review my tickle trunk

I guess I just didn’t understand this vibrator. It was designed for a tiny flap of silicone to deliver pleasurable vibrations? I’m supposed to rest my pubic bone on a plastic bulge? When I first got it I was playing with the vibrations thinking “No. There must be a different way. This can’t be it”

Buzzy vibrations + flimsy way to apply pressure + poor design for its purpose = nope nope nope.

It’s by no means the worst clitoral vibrator I’ve ever used, but testing it felt like a chore in that I knew I would be working for my orgasm. I hope I can one day test out a different lay-on vibrator and see if there really is something unique to be had with this technique, but I’m afraid the beautiful yet weak S1 isn’t it for me.

      Lay-On Vibrators are meant for you to lay on your back and let the vibrator “lay-on” you for hands free use. The tip is for when you want to have precise vibes and the silver mound is for when you want wider less concentrated ones.

        It’s hard to find a concrete answer, but I’ve never seen a lay-on vibrator used or marketed with this idea in mind, mainly because most people need pressure to get benefit from a toy. Most reviews of lay-ons talk about the face-down position as far as I can tell.
        That said, if this vibe was intended for this use, then I’m afraid the rating would be even lower. It would just buzz right off the body, since it’s not a good shape to stay in place anywhere (particularly because of the round bottom)
