There are a few sex toys that have been on my “want to review” list forever. The Pillow Talk Sassy was one such product, after seeing sex bloggers I respect immensely (including Epiphora) raving about it.
So I was thrilled when the lovely folks at Self & More – a boutique, women-owned sex shop based in London – reached out to offer me the Sassy for review. Shall we dive in and find out what I thought?
(Pssst. There’s also a discount code for you at the bottom of this review, so keep reading!)
Pillow Talk Sassy: First Impressions
One of the things that immediately drew me to the Sassy was the gorgeous colour. It’s a lovely mint green, which is probably my favourite colour apart from purple! This is a relatively unusual colour for a sex toy, and it stands out amidst a sea of pink and other more common colours. (The Sassy does also come in pink, if that’s your thing.)
The Pillow Talk Sassy’s button features a sparkly Swarovski crystal, which is entirely unnecessary but also pleasingly extra to a #Sparklefemme such as myself.
The Sassy came attractively packaged in a white, clear front box. Included with the toy, there was a charging cable, a satin storage pouch, and – this is really cool – a little cleaning brush to help you clean in those tricky grooves and ridges.
Facts & Figures
The Pillow Talk Sassy is 7.5″ long, with 5″ of insertable length, and the diameter is 1.5″ at the widest post. It is splashproof (not fully waterproof) and USB rechargeable. The advertised charge time is 2.5 hours; in reality, I got around 2 on full power.
The Sassy has a pronounced curve and bulbous head. It is made of 100% silky-smooth, body-safe silicone.
As ever, water-based lube is your friend and will make your experience more pleasurable.
Simple one-button interface
The Pillow Talk Sassy has an unusual control system. It runs on a one-button interface and the button is large, intuitively located on the base of the shaft, and easy to press.
Here’s where things get unusual: once you’ve turned your toy on (via a quick press of the button,) you turn up the intensity by holding down the button. The power increases smoothly until you release the button. To give you an idea of how many intensity levels the Sassy offers, it took nine seconds to get to full power once switched on.
Another quick press switches the toy off. There are no patterns or any of that sillyness – just good, straightforward vibrations.
The Pillow Talk Sassy features a travel lock. Just press the button three times in quick succession to activate the travel lock, and then do the same again to release it. Useful if you don’t want your bag to start vibrating unexpectedly at the airport
Anyone who has read my work for a while will know that I have a thing for taking G-spot vibrations and repurposing them as clitoral vibes. The reason is simple: my G-spot doesn’t like being vibrated!
Fortunately, the Sassy is also a brilliant clitoral vibrator. It provides deep, rumbly vibration at all power levels, and the Powerbullet motor packs an impressive punch.
I absolutely love the shape of the Pillow Talk Sassy. It’s easy to hold and angle the tip against my clit. Though I’m not a fan of internal vibrations, I thought it might be fun to repurpose as a dildo. And oh my, yes, this little gem delivered! Its curve is ideal for reaching the right spot and getting that gorgeous “come hither” motion going. Honestly, I really want to have a partner fuck me with this while I use a bullet vibe on my clit.
The Sassy’s shaft is somewhat flexible, so that’s something to bear in mind if you prefer very rigid toys or intense G-spot pressure. I found the gentle flex made the experience more comfortable and fun.
The Sassy’s noise level is about what you’d expect for a toy at this level of power. Not silent by any stretch, but not likely to wake the neighbours, either!
The Pillow Talk Sassy is an awesome all-rounder. It takes a simple premise – a powerful, rumbly vibrator with a curve just made for G-spot pleasure – and it does it damn well. It is also pleasingly pretty – who says you can’t have beauty and function in one awesome package? The Sassy is shockingly well priced at £45, and of much higher quality than many toys that are two or three times the price.
Excellent on all scores. It’s earned a place in the coveted Easy Access Basket where all my favourite toys live!
Go get one. Your bits will thank you.
