It’s just incredibly exciting to turn each other on in public. Right? The idea that you – as a man – literally have the control to make her wet is just irresistible. And as a woman it can be really exciting to fully hand over control. My wife and I understand this. And that’s why we thought it would be exciting to try the PantyRebel vibrating panties.
Spoiler alert: ‘Kind of exciting, but no orgasm material’
What is a PantyRebel vibrating panties?
This set consists of a pair of black panties, a rechargeable mini vibrator and a remote control. The panties have a kind of pocket in the crotch that can hold the vibrator. The idea is that you charge the vibrator and put it on standby in the panties. If you are very adventurous – and you are – you give the remote control to your partner. He (or she) can now turn on the vibrator at any time. Now try to keep a straight face!
PantyRebel is a brand of EDC;the company behind EasyToys and the NBRplaza shop.
Specs & functies of the PantyRebel
This set includes close-fitting black knickers with sexy lace details on the hips. The slip is size S to M (34 to 38) and will therefore fit perfectly for many women.
The vibrator is only 8 centimeters long, 4,5 centimeters wide and about 3 centimeters thick. The remote control is a ring of about 5 centimeters in diameter.
The vibrator has 9 different vibration patterns plus 3 fixed vibration speeds. You can control this with the on / off button on the vibrator (if you want to use it solo externally) or with the buttons on the remote control.
The vibrator can be charged with the magnetic USB cable. Both the vibrator and the remote are splash proof.
The PantyRebel comes in a beautiful black box that would not look out of place in a lingerie store. What is a bit of a shame is that the content is less chic. The panties are in a plastic sandwich bag that has everything but a luxurious and exciting look. And a second plastic bag contains the vibrator, charging cable, remote control and a manual.
My partner and I quickly get over this marketing blunder and start charging the vibrator as quickly as possible. These magnetic charging cables are a trend nowadays and that is very nice. At least if the magnet is strong enough (and this one is). The cable is also long enough.
Immediately noticeable is the beautiful finish of this toy. The vibrator and the remote control are both made of soft black silicone with a hard plastic finish in rose gold color.
The shape of the vibrator is a bit reminiscent of the Mimic, but much smaller. It is a seductive erotic and ergonomic shape.
The manual contains clear drawings and at first glance everything is immediately clear. Time to take this thing for a test drive.
The ‘test drive’
The panties are not disappointing at all. The fit is great. She normally has size M and it fits like a glove. The material (polyamide or nylon) feels nice. The ‘pocket’ in the crotch is precisely big enough for the vibrator.
Strangely enough, the manual doesn’t mention the required charging time. But life is way too short anyway to always do everything according to the manual, so fuck it!
We set the vibrator to ‘standby’ by pressing the on / off button on the vibrator for a few seconds. The vibrator vibrates 1 time as a sign that it is ready. Well, that’s great, ’cause so are we.
She gets dressed and we set off for lunch in the city. Along the way, I can’t help but press the remote control. She coos and giggles immediately. Even with the noise of my diesel engine on the highway, I hear a soft buzzing sound coming from her trousers, as if her phone is ringing. I press pause again. We only look at each other in a meaningful way: this can be fun.
What I was a little afraid of was that the standby would not stay on long enough. In the past I have experienced this with a vibrating egg: just when you are comfortably sitting in the cinema, and press the remote control, the thing has fallen asleep. Well, not with this PantyRebel. Even after doing nothing for one hour, the standby function is still active!
We have lunch in a grand café. The music is on and there is plenty of buzz. As soon as the hipster bearded waiter is at our table, I feel for the remote control. While he gives us the menu, I cannot find the button. Only when he runs away again, the thing apparently switches on, because she gives a short high and low-key scream. A moment later when a waitress comes to bring our drinks, I make sure my finger is on the button. Just when she puts her cappuccino on the table, I press the remote control. I can see from her face that she is feeling the vibration, but she can restrain herself this time. She only looks at me almost angry.
To make a long story short: during our lunch I constantly played with the buttons. On, off, different pattern, pause,… well, you must have a clear image by now. Sometimes she had to move a little to feel the vibrations in the right place. We discussed the patterns together (“oh, this one is nice”) and had some hot conversations. Even when she went to the toilet, I turned it on. I later understood from her that it had indeed started to vibrate. Pretty clever at that distance and separated by a few doors ! The general setting set us in a good mood, so to speak.
According to the instructions on the label, the panties can be washed in the washing machine at 30 degrees. It shouldn’t go in the dryer though. But fuck that last one. If you have a good dryer, no harm will be done if you just don’t use a high temperature.
The vibrator is splash-proof. So you can (I guess) just keep it under the tap to wash off, but not immerse in water.
The hard plastic finish is indeed nice, but there are also a few edges where dirt can easily enter, which is difficult to get out. A washcloth, some mild soap or toy cleaner can help.
A lot of the fun of this toy also comes from the play: knowing that she has something there and that her partner (male or female) can control that. That is exciting for both parties. The vibrations are not the strongest and an orgasm may not be included while wearing it (but oh oh oh afterwards!).
The PROS of the PantyRebel vibrerend slipje:
- Beautiful panties made of nylon / polyamide in one-size-fits-most
- Vibrator and remote control made of soft silicone material with a luxurious appearance
- Discreet remote control (does not look like something of a sex toy, even though it is publicly on the table in a restaurant)
- Fairly low noise level
- The vibrator stays on standby for a long time
- The remote control works to a considerable distance (about 10 meters, even separated by a few doors)
- Splash proof (do not immerse)
- Edges around the hard plastic finish can become a hiding place for bacteria
- Manual says nothing about charging time and cleaning
- Buttons on the remote control are hard to find and should be a bit more pronounced
- It is unclear whether the remote control also has a battery. Anyway, there is no possibility to replace or charge it. So after a while he’ll give up, I guess?
- Vibration is not very strong: nice as a foreplay, but not strong enough for a happy ending
- No storage bag included. Such a pity. If toys consist of several parts, you still want to keep them together, right?
