This sex toy review was published on OurChart.com around August 8th 2008, before the website dumped their content. I have reposted it here out of respect for the companies which donated their product, in this case: Babeland.com– JL

Attention DJs, rockstars, music lovers, and gadget geeks. Your toy has arrived. The Naughtinano is a hip vibrator that packs a whole lot of FUN. It plugs into your ipod and buzzes in tempo with the music. How cool is that?!

Here’s how it works: The vibe comes with a 3 foot long cord with earbuds and two plugs. One end inserts into the vibe and the other into your ipod. When sound is transmitted, the vibe turns on, resulting in vibrations that match the tempo. Want to keep it steady? There’s also an additional end cap allows you to use the toy more traditionally; choose from a number of vibrator settings, strengths, and pulses. Either way, you’ve got yourself a great toy.

Geek out over the possibilities of hooking this vibe up to various kinds of equipment. It plays great with iPods and other mp3 players (this includes both music and phone conversations with the iPhone)… Talk about phone sex. “Can you hear me now?” Gooooooood!! You can also attach this fancy little number to guitars, amps, microphones and pretty much anything that has an electronic audio output source with a 3.5mm jack.

Luckily, I found a songwriter who was very willing to help me test out the toy with her guitar and an amplifier. Talk about a hot date serenade! When hooked to the guitar, vibrations from the strum of sweet guitar chords overlap one another and kick the vibe into a steady buzz. Pluck a note once, and the buzz starts and fades out with the sound – a nice touch for brilliantly romantic foreplay.

With a microphone, the vibe was quicker to mimic starts and stops of sounds. This leads to more clever ideas, such as the mic picking up the sounds of everything from poems to moans and from claps to slaps.

Naughtinano was created by OhMiBod, a company that’s also released other models of sound-induced vibes, including a discreet remote vibe that responds to your cellphone. That ‘vibrate’ setting just got a whole lot kinkier! However the Naughtinano is versatile as a solo toy or a fun tryst with a lover – imagine your own orgasm powered by the sound of your lover’s moans. Imagine watching a porno video, and feeling the vibration in time with your favorite scene. Interactive ideas like Skype or webcam beg to be tested out. I haven’t even begun to tap the possibilities. But with so much fun exploring sound, let’s not forget the toy itself.

The Naughtinano is a slender beauty (1 1/8” at its widest and 4” insertable length) which makes it ideal for easy transport. (Think purse-size.) It comes in one of four solid color choices – licorice black, green apple, blueberry, and bubblegum pink. The vibe has soft curves and a velvety feeling. It’s made out of ABS plastic and is hypoallergenic non-toxic, and non porous. To clean, simply wipe with mild soap and water, and stay clear of getting water on any metal parts as water may corrode these areas. I might also add that I wouldn’t recommend this vibe for anal play. (Rule: if it doesn’t have a handle or flared base, it’s not worth the risk of losing it up the butt.)

The vibe takes two sets of 1.5V “N” type batteries. Although these batteries aren’t as common as AAA or AA, my sexy songwriter friend assured me can be easily picked up at any Radio Shack. Two sets of batteries come with the vibe, which is available at any high quality sex toy store.
 
Now to work on that playlist…
