Does Liquid Vibrator Work? I Tried "Buzz" To Find Out

Well, you guys, just when you think sex can't get any stranger, somebody goes and invents something else to stick around your genitalia, and it gets really weird.

Next to be tackled in the unending mystery that is sex and all things associated with it is none other than a brand-new vibrator. But it's not just any vibrator.

You guys, FEAST YOUR EYES ON THIS ~LIQUID VIBRATOR~.

Buzz Liquid Vibrator, $18, Amazon 

Yes, you read that correctly, and yes, you're probably just as confused as I was when I read the name. Because in what world does liquid actively vibrate?

Technically, this liquid vibrator doesn't literally vibrate, though.

To quote Doc Johnson, the liquid vibrator, called Buzz, "heightens arousal and seduces your senses."

The exact product description reads,

With just a few drops of Buzz Liquid Vibrator stimulating clitoral gel, you can take your pleasure to all-new heights. The soothing all-natural ingredients of Buzz enhance your body's unique sensations for a hands-free, long-lasting intimate experience. Buzz also provides gentle lubrication for ultimate comfort when enjoying Buzz with a partner or solo.

Because I am ALL about taking my "pleasure to all-new heights" (I love to love myself — what can I say?), I was eager to see what all the buzz was about. (LMAO, I'm sorry.)

Follow me on this journey of liquified skepticism, gel-infused pleasure, and a final say on whether or not I'm buzzin' about Buzz. (I'm sorry again.)

First, I examined the specimen.

OK, so admittedly, I didn't have any expectations going into this experience because how the hell am I going to have expectations for something I literally didn't know existed until a week ago?

Maybe my "WOAH, WTF" reaction to seeing the gel for the first time was a little dramatic, but 1) I live for the drama and 2) this is a liquid vibrator! LIQUID. IT'S EXCITING.

I rubbed a little bit of the gel on the back of my hand first to see what the consistency felt like and to make sure I didn't have some god-awful reaction to it. (Spoiler: I didn't.)

As Doc Johnson promised, the gel was pretty tame in terms of how messy it was and how much it spread all over the place. For the most part, there was no sticky residue after wiping the gel off my hand, and it essentially stayed only in the areas I put it on — no slipping and dripping all over the place.

I will say, I didn't exactly feel any sort of sensation when I put Buzz on my hand, which initially made me a bit skeptical. But of course, I remembered, if I only ever put my regular vibrators on my hands, I'd literally be the worst at masturbating.

So at this point, it was time to get down to business.

I started with a non-invasive area: ~the nips~.

No, I'm not including any pics of this gel on my actual nips, ya NASTY.

Anyway, I was eager to try Buzz on a more sensitive area of my body to see if it really "heightened [my] arousal," and I'll give you guys a little spoiler: Putting Buzz on my nipples was pretty much my favorite part of this whole experience.

I'll be 100 percent honest: I'm a sucker for nipple play. And TBH, if you say you're not, you've either never tried it, or you're lying. (OK, that was harsh. I guess it's OK if you don't like it... but like... why, my dude?)

In following the directions provided on the tube, I started out with two drops of Buzz right on my nip. Then, I added a third for good measure because I don't half-ass anything.

After about a minute, I started feeling a very light, warm sensation on my nipple. I wouldn't necessarily say it was a tingling feeling, nor was my entire areola about to vibrate off my boob. (LOL, can you imagine?)

Instead, I'd say it felt similar to the feeling of warmth you get when someone very lightly plays with your nipple — the initial feeling of someone else touching a sensitive area without anyone actually touching it.

What's more? I noticed the feeling lingered around for a pretty long while after I applied the gel. I'm not talking 15 minutes, either. This goop kept working for almost an hour (longer than most things last, if you know what I'm saying).

And considering I'm barely even willing to actively focus on myself for more than 30 minutes, it was nice to feel that arousal for more than my usual 10 minutes — with literally no effort on my part. TALK ABOUT ~THE DREAM~.

And finally, I went all in, clit first.

OK, enough fooling around, you guys. It's time to get to the good part.

The big question is, does this gel actually work on arguably the most important part of the female body (you know, if you're into sex and orgasms, that is): YOUR CLIT?

Obviously, I made sure everything ~down there~ was clean, and I washed my hands because I'm not an ANIMAL.

I will say, I was scared for about 0.2 seconds. What if my clit fell off? What if something god-awful happened to my vagina? WHAT IF I NEVER STOPPED BEING AROUSED?

But then, I remembered that my entire personality is based on the fact that I deflect anything bad that happens to me with humor, so I knew I was invincible at this point.

I followed the same protocol for my clit that I followed with my nips: place three drops on the area and wait for ~the feelings~ to start.

Again, after about a minute, I felt a similar feeling of warmth washing over my entire clit. Only this time, the sensation was much, much stronger than the one I felt on my nipple. And this can be chalked up to the fact that there are many more nerve endings in my clit than in my nip.

Needless to say, this warm, touch-but-no-touch sensation on my clit kept getting stronger and stronger (to an extent) the more I kept the gel on — but in a good way. And similar to the way the gel lasted on my nipples, the warming sensation lingered around for about 45 minutes after and began to slowly diminish at that point.

All in all, I will say the sensation on my clit erred on the side of just enough warmth, and it felt GOOD (for me, at least — I'm a sucker for the "almost too much" parts of anything sexual. What? Who said that?). What I mean is, I went from "this is interesting" to "OH, SH*T, WOW" really fast.

But be warned: If you know your body is extra sensitive, I'd stick to one or two small drops of Buzz, be patient, and let that liquid work its magic.

Am I buzzin'?

Overall, I am, in fact, buzzin' about Buzz.

While I was a bit skeptical at first, Buzz does work when it comes to strengthening your arousal and making the already sensitive areas of your body even more sensitive. And you literally don't have to do anything.

Plus, my nipple and my clit are very much still attached to my body, which I'd call a serious win after putting a weird gel all over them.

With that said, was I able to orgasm with just the liquid vibrator alone?

No, definitely not.

However, paired with consistent penetration and other ~sensual things~ (SORRY FOR HAVING EMOTIONS, PEOPLE), I'd say Buzz would definitely make orgasming during some P-in-V action a lot easier — completely hands-free.

The added sensitivity really works to put you on edge, meaning you'll only need a bit more stimulation before you make your weird orgasm face. (Yes, you have one, and yes, it's weird.)

I'd say the pros to Buzz are as follows: non-invasive, minimal cleanup, hands-free, and pleasurable.

On the other hand, while there weren't many cons, I'd be cautious of two things:

If you're looking to have a REALLY quick masturbation sesh or have a quickie with someone else, know that the sensations from the gel will linger on for a while after (which could be pretty fun if you're into the ~secrecy~, IDK man). Also, be weary of how sensitive your body is. Start with a little bit of Buzz, and only add more if needed.

If you're with someone else and want to use Buzz to get things hotter, quite literally, you can do that. If you're solo, and want to heighten your sensitivity while you get freaky with whatever the hell else you get freaky with, you can do that, too.

Just be safe, have fun, and get buzzing about Buzz.
