Happy Day Eight of Sexmas! It’s almost New Year’s Eve, but Sexmas is still going strong as we meander through the Festive Perineum. (That’s the term for the period between Christmas and New Year’s.) I’m keeping up with my Romp series to review the Romp Cello. I didn’t purposefully wait until Day 8 to review a toy that’s shaped like an 8, but I dig the coincidence. The Romp Cello is a cello-shaped remote control vibrator that’s a lot of fun, even if the vibrator itself is more buzzy than I’d like.
The Romp Cello is branded like other Romp products: bright and friendly colors, an image of the product on the front.
It looks like a cello! Get it? Adorable.
The Cello comes with a remote control, instructions, and a charging cable. Mine also came with stickers, but I’m not sure if those are standard or promotional.
The Cello is shaped like a figure eight, or like a cello, and it has a long, flexible antenna with a power button on the end. It’s covered with soft-touch silicone in a friendly teal color.
The remote control matches the Cello with the same teal color. It has a single button.
It’s definitely adorable, so now let’s talk about function.
The Cello is meant to be inserted in the vagina like a vibrating egg, although it can also be used externally. It’s controllable either through the button at the end of the antenna or by the single button on the remote control.
I noticed immediately that the Cello is really buzzy. That’s expected for a lot of lower cost vibrators, although the Cello is one of the more expensive products in the Romp line, so I had higher hopes. I was able to overlook the buzziness for the pinpoint stimulation of the Romp Riot, but the Cello is designed primarily for internal use, which automatically dampens the vibrations. I had to turn it up to a much stronger intensity to get good stimulation on my g-spot.
Where the Cello shines, though, is with remote access. This is a perfect toy to give to a partner for some discreet public play or fun around the house. The remote is not going to work from as far away as a Bluetooth compatible toy, but if your partner is sitting nearby, this shouldn’t be a problem. There’s no way the Cello is going to get me off on its own, but that is fine if what I’m looking for is some teasing and foreplay. The Cello excels in that area.
If you are really sensitive to g-spot vibrations, you might be able to get off with the Cello. But if not, it can still be fun to play with.
Kudos and Caveats
Kudos for a functional, simple remote control. I don’t need another app. There’s one button that can turn the toy on and off and also control the patterns, and that’s all I really need.
Kudos for waterproofing. The Cello is submersible waterproof, so if you want to have fun in the shower or bath, have at it. Accompanying caveat: keep the remote dry, though. That’s not water resistant.
Caveat: those buzzy vibrations don’t travel as deeply as rumbly vibrations, which may not be the stimulation you need to get all the way.
Kudos for a moderately quiet toy that’s a real possibility for public play. Be discreet, though: bystanders didn’t consent to be involved in your sex play. The Cello is pretty quiet but it’s going to be audible in a silent space like a library.
Caveat: the Cello isn’t safe for anal play. While it does have that long antenna, that isn’t wide enough to keep it from slipping completely inside. Don’t let that happen to you.
Kudos for a lower price point. At $39.99, the Cello is an entry-level remote control vibrator for those without the disposable income to drop on a fancy We-Vibe Chorus. It’s not the same caliber of vibrator, true, but it’s still a good time.
The Romp Cello isn’t perfect, but it has a lot going for it. If you don’t mind your vibrators on the buzzy side and are excited by the possibility of some public play, this might be the perfect toy for you. And at this price point, you can hopefully afford to take that chance. It’s cute, it’s accessible, it’s the Romp Cello! Consider taking the plunge for this eighth day of Sexmas.
