Lux Embrace

Lux Embrace by California Exotics

Flexible ears

Vibrations not that strong
AAA Batteries

The Lux Embrace was provided to me free of charge from California Exotics in exchange for an honest review.  It is part of the SEXPERTS review program.

The Lux Embrace is a hand held clitoral vibe.  You can insert the bunny ears for added stimulation and it’s great for external stimulation of your labia. You can use this one on your nipples and all over , the silicone does glide across your skin.  You can also use this on a man’s scrotal areas well as  your and your lover’s erogenous zones.

It has several ways that you can hold it to use it in different manners. You can use it for some perineal stimulation when holding the handle downwards You can hold it so that the handle points towards the ceiling and the ears are inserted into and the face bump on the curve hits your clitoris.  The Embrace could be used anally with the bunny ears inserted.  The handle will prevent it from going missing.  The silicone is safe to be sterilized.

The Embrace is completely smooth. No textures at all.  It’s silicone area  above the metal band is soft and velvety and it doesn’t collect any lint or hair.  The handle area  below the metal band is made from plastic and PU coated plastic, it too is very soft and velvety.   The silicone  is non porous, hypoallergenic, phthalates and latex free.  These materials are safe to share with partners.  They are easy to clean.  The silicone is firm but flexible in the face and  in the bunny ears .  The handle is solid.  There is no taste or smell to the Embrace.

The Embrace has a handle area that has a total length of approximately 6 ¼  inches, the bunny ears are  1 ¼ inches long and each ear has a diameter of ½ inch. The face area is 1 ½ inch long and has a diameter of 1 ½ inches.  The handle area has a diameter of 1 ½ inches.  It is very easy to hold on to and fits nicely in the palm of my hand.

The Embrace runs on 2 AAA batteries that are inserted in the bottom potion of the toy.  The cap comes off completely.  It is waterproofed with a silicone piece that completely sits over the battery area.  The cal exotics logo is on the cover of the battery compartment.  There are 2 buttons present to control the toy.  The button that is closest to the end of the toy turns it on and off.  The other button with the squiggle marks on it controls the settings.  There is a red light that glows in the  control area when the toy is on.  The light does get dimmer and matches the pulsations when in pulsation mode.

There are 7 settings:

1. Low constant vibration
2.  Medium constant vibrations
3.  High constant vibrations
4.  Escalating low to high vibrations
5.  Pulsating
6. Very fast pulsations
7. Fast and then slow pulsations in a chaotic fashion

The Embrace doesn’t have any memory so when you turn it off it starts at the lowest vibrations setting.     I can say that the vibrations are somewhat buzzy but they lean more towards rumbly.  I am impressed at how quiet this toy is.  It cannot be heard over the covers.  The vibrations are centered more in the bunny face and the ears movement can be felt  with the vibrations.  They do not move strong enough to be seen moving though.

The Embrace is easy to clean up with some antibacterial soap and water, or toy sprays.  It does pass the waterproof test.  It cannot be boiled or placed in the dishwasher due to it’s motor.  It can also be wiped down with at 10% bleach solution for good sterilization. Special attention needs to be paid to the metal band to make sure that the seam gets cleaned well.  It can be stored in the plastic box that it came in or in a toy pouch or I just place it in a plastic baggy to keep it from my other toys.  If you let silicones lay with each other they can ruin each other’s finishes.  Use only water based lube too so that the finish doesn’t get compromised.


The Embrace comes in a clear plastic box from cal exotics.  I personally hate these boxes because the seams break apart and they get sharp.  The packaging is nothing special with some product information on it.

I would rate the Lux Embrace a 3 out of 5, it is a good external vibrator with decent vibrations.  It works good for an external clitoral vibrator, Great for beginners and those who aren't power queens.  Power Queens may be disappointed.  It works well as a teaser with foreplay.  When you have someone to help take you over the edge.  It is good for solo play but I found it just didn't give me Orgasms.

Thanks to California Exotic Novelties for providing me with the Lux Embrace.
