Pleasure Centre: Jil Olivia G-Spot Vibrator | Product Review - Par Femme

by Tabitha Laffernis

I’m a light touch. Soft, languid fingers; steady pressure from a consistent rhythm; a constant thrill when a tongue is buried in my vulva or somewhere a little further south—these are the things that get me slippery every time. All this to say that I’m late to the vibrator game—I’d convinced myself for years that I just didn’t need one.

Oh, how wrong I was. When things ended with my last regular partner, curiosity—and a hankering for a something more than my own hands and fumbling flings—got the better of me. I started experimenting with vibes, slowly accruing a small collection of toys. My tastes were challenged, still growing more varied. And now? The Jil Olivia G-Spot Vibrator is the crowning jewel of my nightstand.

Olivia is velvety in my hand. It’s about six curved inches with two bulbous ends—one the handle; the other a head that pleasures immediately as you start to massage around your pussy, upping the ante on entry. It’s made of liquid silicone that’s poured into a mould over the motor and other techy bits, and the result is a bendy vibe that’s flexible enough to stimulate your G-spot and tease your clit at the same time. Make no mistake: this baby gets in there, moulding to your shape to hit the spot.

There’s just one button that you hold down for about three seconds before it starts to purr, quietly; subsequent presses take you through another nine settings. The pulsation patterns are surprising, and several are excellent for edging. I’m not normally a pulse-pattern gal (see above for ‘consistent rhythm’), but hello, Olivia. I love a surprise.

And it’s not just the settings that surprise. Olivia is a single shaft, and with its elegant lines, doesn’t look like it packs much of a punch. But the motor feels like an F1 car tearing down a track. On my first spin, I came hard, fast, on the first setting. This is not a bad thing (hell no), but if, like me, you’re a sensitive sort, pace yourself for something truly special. Take it slow, work it along your nipples, experiment with nestling it above or below your clit, feel the rumbles reach deeper and deeper, coursing through to your ass. Light some candles, put on some ethically-produced porn, mix a drink, run a bath, delete a "You up?" text. Make a night of it, every night.

Call it self-care, self-love, or just your right to feel good. The Olivia vibrator is here to prove that pleasure doesn’t discriminate.

The elevator pitch
Jil’s Olivia is a beautiful, powerful G-spot vibe with surprising pulse patterns. Ten different settings make it an equally great starter vibe or a decadent toy for vibe veterans.

Ease of use
Toss the instructions—the design is elegant, intuitive, and exciting. The charging port is literally a pinpoint, though, so it can be hard to find. When you do, put a little muscle into it when you push the charger in. A pink light blinks at the base while it’s charging and stays on when it’s fully juiced. However, the first charge can take around 3-4 hours—it loses a point because I was raring to go.
Rating: 4/5

Packaging
The Olivia comes in a compact cardboard box, nestled in a disposable plastic casing. The charger is included. The package includes instructions, but who needs ‘em?
Rating: 5/5

Aesthetic
Sculptural and sexy, Olivia wouldn’t look amiss on a nightstand if you forgot to put it away when your parents come to visit (which, ahem, I may have done). Shrug and say it’s art.
Rating: 5/5

Materials
Made from a liquid, body-safe silicone, so make sure to use silicone-friendly lubes. Olivia is 100% waterproof with a self-sealing charging port that makes her ideal for some splashy, wet fun. Wash her with soap and warm water. The silicone can catch lint, so make sure it’s clean and dry before use.
