Big Dreams, Modest Results: Coco Vibrator Review

This is a sponsored post.

We live in a golden age of sex toys, where innovations and choices abound. Not everything has to be the newest and best product to be effective, though. That brings us to the SVAKOM Coco G-spot Vibrator. The Coco vibrator isn’t covering any new territory, but works well, especially for its price point.

Out of the Box

The packaging for the Coco vibrator is lovely. It’s in a sleek white box, not a clamshell plastic package in sight.

Once you open the box, the vibrator is set into a perfect cutout.

The box contains not only the Coco, but also a lovely velvet-plush bag, a charging cable, and some instructions.

The Coco vibrator is a slim toy with a slight curve to the head, designed for g-spot stimulation. I took a pic alongside my thumb so you can see the thickness.

The head itself is flexible.

There is one button that controls the Coco’s intensities and patterns.

It charges through the bottom cap, which unscrews.

The Coco is a nice looking vibrator! Let’s talk about performance.

Into My Box

Understanding the Modes

The Coco vibrator manual is a must-read, because the controls aren’t intuitive. There’s just one button, but there are a sequence of modes and each mode has variable intensity. Once the vibrator is on, you double-click the button to switch modes. The modes are Normal mode, Caressing mode, Joyous mode, Passion mode, and Climax mode. Normal mode is patternless vibration, and the rest are different patterns, none of which made me feel inherently more joyous than another. The names are cute, though, and the patterns provide some nice variety.

When you’re in any particular mode, you push the button once to change the intensity level. They increase, and then start over at the lowest setting after reaching maximum intensity. But here’s the catch: if you’re in a pattern mode, your intensity change won’t take effect until the “cycle” is done. For example: the Climax mode is a pattern of high and low vibrations, maybe four repetitions? I didn’t count and the number is irrelevant. So let’s say one cycle is [HIGH-low-HIGH-low-HIGH-low-HIGH-low], repeating. If you hit the button once to make that whole pattern more intense, it’s not going to increase until it’s finished all four of those alternating intensities. That can make it difficult to know if you’ve actually pushed the button or not. Patience is key.

Using the Vibe

The Coco is a very buzzy vibe. If you’re new to vibrators, “buzzy” vibrations tend to stay on the surface, whereas “rumbly” vibrations penetrate. Rumbly vibrators are generally preferred, because they stimulate the internal nerves rather than just surface nerves, and they minimize the “itchy” feeling that some vibrators can cause. Rumbly vibrators also tend to be more expensive than buzzy vibrators, so the cheaper the vibe, the more likely it is to be buzzy.

The Coco is a surprisingly powerful vibe, despite being buzzy. I cycled through all the patterns and intensities, and I found the lower intensities sufficient for my use, but there’s a whole range for people who prefer a higher intensity.

As a g-spot vibe, the Coco was not a good match for me. Its vibrations were diffused along the body of the vibe, not just the head. Even though the head was making contact with my g-spot, my g-spot needs more focused pressure and deeper vibration for stimulation. Because it was so slim, which some users may like, I couldn’t get even a feeling of fullness or pressure that I find pleasurable. I ended up trying a variety of positions internally and then switching to external stimulation.

I preferred the Coco as a clitoral stimulator. The vibrations were still superficial, but they worked fine for me. It was easy to align and find an effective position for climax, and it worked especially well when paired with a separate dildo for internal stimulation.

Let’s Talk About Advertising

I like some elements of the SVAKOM Coco, but I do not like the way the product is marketed. Let’s talk about a few issues.

First, the Coco claims to be able to make you orgasm in 8 seconds. This is, frankly, ridiculous. Also, the speed of orgasm doesn’t necessarily mean a good orgasm.

The ad also says that it’s anal-safe, and let me tell you, this is not an anal-safe product. There is no flared base, and this fucker is going to vibrate itself right up into your rectum. Do you want to be part of this year’s list of What Did We Get Stuck In Our Rectums? Do not put this toy up your ass.

One selling point of the Coco, according to the ad, is that it “will not stretch your vagina.”

Ad from Coco. Says "COCO G-spot vibrator 30-degree angle fits perfectly to the female vagina. That is why COCO can localize the G spot quickly and make orgasm within 8 seconds possible. The design is from an ergonomic point of view. This slim vibrator will not stretch your vagina or make you feel pain even if you are a sex toy beginner."

This perpetuates the toxic myth that vaginas stretch out with use. The vagina doesn’t get loose and flabby from dildos or cocks! (Or babies, for that matter!) You can prefer a slim vibrator for lots of reasons, but please don’t think you have to use one to keep your vagina from stretching out.

And finally, this image.

I’m going out on a limb here to say pretty much nobody, outside of maybe some straight cis men, is enticed to buy this product by the drawing of a squirting vagina. And I like hentai! But I don’t buy products based on hentai! This is broadly unappealing to people who have vaginas.

Kudos and Caveats

Kudos for a body-safe vibrator made from quality materials.

More kudos for waterproofing! Totally submersible, the Coco is useable in showers and baths and therefore also easy to clean.

I also want to give kudos for excellent packaging. This is an elegant box that presents the Coco as a high-quality product.

Kudos for a $30 price point, which is accessible for many people and allows this to be a low-risk purchase for those new to sex toys.

Kudos for quiet vibrations. It wasn’t silent, but it was pretty quiet overall.

Kudos for a variety of patterns and for adjustable intensities within each pattern.

Caveat: buzzy vibrations. As vibrators go, buzzy will always rank below rumbly for me, although your mileage may vary.

Caveat: advertising that is unpleasant and misleading.

Caveat: gender essentialist language in the ads, which is uninviting to trans people and those of us who know that vagina does not equal woman.

Final Thoughts

The SVAKOM Coco G-spot vibrator sets high aspirations through its advertising, and it doesn’t meet them. It is, however, a well-priced, effective (if buzzy) vibrator that’s a good entry to the world of sex toys. For those who want rumbly vibration or a thicker shaft, look elsewhere. But for people who are intimidated by vibrators overall, or who want a slimmer toy, or who like surface vibrations, the Coco is a good choice. It may not give you an 8-second orgasm, but it’ll likely be a pleasant ride with a variety of patterns to enjoy along the way.
