Reviewing the PinkCherry It's a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug
Thoughtful ShippingThe Pink Cherry It’s a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug arrived discretely, which is great news for readers with privacy concerns. The package was enclosed in a bubble mailer, and the label displayed no mention of PinkCherry. While I’m open about my sexual health products, I appreciate when a company prioritizes consumer discretion over an advertisement opportunity.
Trial by FireA strong chemical odor wafted from the package upon opening. This scent wasn’t diminished after multiple washes and days of air-drying. This made me question the “platinum-cured silicone” claim from the listing. I performed a flame test (which isn’t advisable on toys with electronic components, such as mine), and it passed. While my silicone doubts were relieved, the odor is still very present.
Quality AssuranceBefore insertion, I took a day to explore the texture, power, and settings externally. This helps avoid discomfort and ease intimidation. Not to mention, the prolonged foreplay brews anticipation for an especially satisfying climax. When it came time to insert, the tapered shape aided in comfortable progression. The girthy neck provided a lovely stretch during use. However, the circumference of the neck was too similar to the circumference of the widest point of the plug. This resulted in the plug being ejected during muscle contractions, kegel flexing, and orgasm. This could have been avoided with a steeper taper from the girthiest point of the plug to the neck.
Good VibrationsThe Pink Cherry It’s a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug emits powerful, yet buzzy vibrations. They’re comparable to that of the VeDO Bump. Although, the Gem is slightly more buzzy and not quite as strong. The first and fourth modes are the least buzzy, with the fourth mode being properly rumbly. The second through tenth modes (excluding the fourth) become progressively stronger, but also buzzier.
My Personal take on the design of the PinkCherry It's a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug
The PinkCherry It's a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug has a mystical aesthetic. Platinum-cured silicone coats the sleek, tapered shaft. It exhibits the most delicious matte black finish, contrasting the clear gem set in the base. The plastic gem resembles a rose-cut crystal, further contributing to the mystical presentation. Not to mention, the wearer looks positively enchanting with the crystal glistening between their cheeks. The small tip, tapered design, and silky texture help the 2.5" length and 4" girth glide smoothly into the anus.
The PinkCherry It's a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug: My Take on Ease of Use
While insertion was a breeze, I can't say the same for keeping the plug in place. Additionally, the button requires significant force to activate power/mode changes. The lack of compression adds strain to the joints. Perhaps this is to prevent unwanted mode changes during penetration. However, it poses concerns for those with limited hand or finger dexterity. Lubrication augments the issue. A locking feature would have been a more inclusive solution. Offering a remote control or app compatibility could, also, increase accessibility to those with certain disabilities.
Quality Verdict: How does PinkCherry It's a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug Measure Up?
This plug feels extremely durable. The PinkCherry website advertises the It's a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug as being made of platinum-cured silicone. Platinum-cured silicone has a higher tensile strength than other silicones, is tear resistant, and yields no by-products. The motor produces powerful vibrations, all while emitting about as much sound as an electric toothbrush. As mentioned, these vibrations are slightly buzzy. The chemical odor does, however, pose quality concerns.
The PinkCherry It's a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug’s Price
At the time of writing this review, the PinkCherry It's a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug is on sale for $24.98. If I were to rate this plug on the sale price, it'd be worth every penny. However, it normally retails for $69.95. I'd consider $69.95 to be a steep price for a plug with no remote, no app, and no customizable features. To compare, the Satisfyer Plug-ilicious 1 and the Satisfyer Rotatator Plug 1 both retail for $69.95; they both include app-connectivity and customizable programs. Neither includes a gem, but I'd argue that a plastic gem doesn't equate the value of the aforementioned assets.
A Closer Look at the PinkCherry It's a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug’s Effectiveness
Oh, this plug performs. The PinkCherry It's a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug arrived pre-charged. The vibrations outshined my expectations and performed just as well underwater. The 2-hours of battery life were enough to keep pace during marathon sessions. Whether one feels it's worth the 2-hour charging time is up to individual preference. As mentioned, the shape may result in the plug dislodging at times. More frustratingly, the button could take multiple firm presses to result in activation of the desired function. However, the most important thing is that the plug gets the job done.
A closer Look at it’s packaging
The packaging of this product consisted of flimsy cardboard and the sort of plastic one may expect to contain an action figure. Packaging aesthetics don't make or break an experience for me. However, the materials may be too flimsy to protect from moderate force during transit. Even my box arrived with a crushed corner, though the product remained undamaged. There was no manual, no directions, and no storage bag. While a storage bag isn't a necessity, instructions should always be included. The box did, however, include a USB charger.
How to care for the PinkCherry It's a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug
The PinkCherry It's a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug is made from platinum-cured silicone and a plastic gem. As with all silicone toys, silicone lubricant should be avoided. Instead, opt for a water-based, anal lubricant. This gem is fully waterproof, so it can be enjoyed in the bathtub without concern. Cleanse with comfortably hot water and a sex toy cleanser before and after each use. Make sure to massage the soap over the contours and gem. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Store in a clean, dry place.

While the PinkCherry It's a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug emitted strong vibrations, it fell short in some crucial areas. The gem required too much force to activate/change settings, and there was no manual included with the product. The PinkCherry website claimed that the gem had a security feature, but I wasn't able to find one. Finally, it feels questionable to insert something with such a strong chemical odor into the body. It won back some points for being fully waterproof and having a 2-hour battery life. For beginners wanting to try a reliable glam plug, it may be worth considering the PinkCherry It's a Gem Vibrating Butt Plug. However, I'd not advise this plug for people with limited hand/finger dexterity or sensitivity to smells.
