The packaging

The packaging on the Temptation is pretty much like all other California Exotic Novelty packaging.  It’s a cardboard box with an image of the toy and it has some details about the toy.  It’s not the most discreet packaging and it doesn’t provide a good storage space because it is a bit larger than the toy.  The package is a bit differnt as it has a front panel on the box that you can open to view the toy inside the box.  It doesn’t really change my opinion of the toy, but it was nice to see a slightly different style of packaging.

Massger in my hand

The toy itself is a small wand style toy.  It’s about 5.75″ long and the head is slightly under 1″.  The handle is about 1.25″ in diameter and the shape fits very nicely in my hand.  The body and handle of the Temptation is made from ABS Plastic and has a cute design on it.   The head is TPR.  Unfortunately,  that means that it is not sterilizable and should not be shared between partners without using a barrier over it.  While it is TPR, I didn’t find it has a smell or is sticky at all.  It’s very smooth and gets slick easily with a bit of lube (water or silicone based).  The head also has a dimpled or bumped texture around the middle.  As far as cleaning,  it is a little difficult.  It’s not a water-proof or even water-resistant toy.  There is no O-ring in the handle where you open it to put the batteries and there is a space between the head and the handle.  I would suggest just using a spray on toy cleaner and wiping it off,  toy wipes,  or using a damp cloth.

The battery compartment

When I first got the Temptation, I just expected it to be a mini wand style vibrator.  However, when I looked at the package more it said that it “rotates and vibrates”, interesting.  I dug up two AAA batteries which are fairly easy to insert.  The handle twists apart to open the battery compartment.  To turn it on,  you click the push button on the end of the handle.  Sure enough, the head rotates.  I clicked the button again to see if it speeds up but it only switches directions of rotation.  The rotation is easily stopped by applying a bit of pressure.   The package states that it vibrates,  but I could not feel any vibration in the head.  In the area of the handle right below the head I did feel some vibration,  but it felt like it was just from the head rotating.  It’s a very weak vibration in any case and the rotation is not particularly fast.  Another thing about the rotation is it is very loud.  I am not sure how thin my walls are and I feel very uncomfortable using this toy without the TV on and turned up,  and even then I still feel awkward using it.  As far as the sensation, it’s fairly similar to the Sqweel,  but with less of a lapping feeling and more of a bumping feeling.  Much like the Sqweel,  I just wasn’t impressed.  The sensation was okay,  but it’s just not a sensation I really enjoy or will bring me to orgasm.  Here’s a short video showing the Temptation:

Overall,  the Divine Temptation is an interesting and fairly unique little toy.  The sensation isn’t for me but I’m sure many people will enjoy it.  I do feel for the price though the head could be silicone instead of TPR and it could offer more speeds in rotation.  I also don’t like that it is so loud,  but living with male roommates,  having discreet toys is very important to me.  Cal Exotics also has two other Divine massagers,  the Scintillation and Inspiration which offer a different handle shape and different textures on the head.
