Sex Toy Review: Meet Athena, the Remote Control Dildo.

Athena Sex Toys- Be your Own Goddess.

I don’t usually shy away from checking out a new vibrator, but I have had some rough experiences with remote control dildos in the past and had my doubts when I was first introduced to this small, unassuming purple number. Let me tell you; this is not a dud! Athena, the remote control dildo, far surpasses any other I have tried.

For starters, I like being treated like a queen with my toys, so anything that arrives to me in a luxurious black drawstring bag, I’m into (I swear it’s the little things sometimes!). The discreet packaging I get from V for Vibes also always helps me feel comfortable. I also appreciate working with a woman-owned company– especially for sex toys. I can tell they put real effort into what actually works best for a woman’s body. Before I ever bring my sex toys into play with my partner, I like spending some time with them alone. This was a great opportunity for me to get to know Athena a bit. 

Athena Dildo Review

First, I love the color. Her rich purple color screams decadence without feeling cheap. The soft silicone (it’s even medical-grade!) had a lovely silky feeling in my hand that I knew was going to feel good in my sensitive spaces. It smooths over the skin nicely without pulling or causing discomfort from any friction. This remote control dildo looks nearly like a modern art piece, too. The curves seem both interesting and approachable- a rare combination when it comes to pulsating dildos. Of course, the Athena also comes with a remote control. The remote control looked simple enough. If you can work your fan’s remote, these three simple buttons shouldn’t stump you. 

When I moved the Athena into place, I quickly realized that there are so many different ways for this pulsating vibrator to feel good. Having her just resting in between my legs felt good, and it wasn’t even on yet. The Athena sex toy would be easy to make discreet, that’s for sure too, and excellent incognito sex toy. She’s only as big as the palm of my hand. This means she can be used with clothes on! I’ll share later how great that part can be.

Athena Remote Control Dildo Review

The curved shape fits gently inside my outer lips and provides both gentle insertion and clitoral stimulation. Now I like feeling full and satisfied with a bigger sex toy too, but I have to say this little insertion also did a lot for me. There’s a ton of sensory nerves in the vaginal canal, and if you didn’t know, a vast majority of them are at the opening. That means that while there’s still fun to be had from larger toys, that in just 4 inches, Athena is shockingly effective at giving you great coverage of these sensitive parts. And it’s not like you can wear an 8-inch dildo in your pants on date night! Small sex toys are insanely powerful. 

When I turned it on, I was excited to see all the different speeds and frequencies that you can try out too. Especially for a remote control sex toy, playing with a wide variety of sensations is half the fun. I also liked some of the lighter sensations because I felt like I could experience them for a long time without that pesky “buzzed out” feeling I’ve gotten from larger toys before. 

Still alone, I kept playing with the Athena, and I realized that I could orgasm literally without even touching it. I realized that they weren’t lying when they said that the Athena pulsating dildo could really give you hands-free orgasms. I’m not going to lie, it felt super empowering to be able to treat myself to a good time without all the work! It was a fun experience figuring out how to make myself giddy without doing anything more than putting it in place and flicking it on. Athena sex toys are the best!!

Now, after I enjoy myself with any toy, I typically share it with my partner. Remote control dildos are fun for hands-free satisfaction, but they are truly made for partner play. And boy, did we play! Once you put Athena sex toys in place, you can still comfortably and discreetly wear clothes. It was the perfect thing to put in place and then present my partner with the remote control before leaving on date night. Compared to other sillier-looking remote control dildo remotes, I thought the Athena’s was tasteful and discreet, and I fell in love with using a remote control vibrator in public all over again.

Let me tell you, the whole night was just such fun. The Athena was both so comfortable I could forget I had it on, and so exciting when my partner reminded me that it was there. Sex should be a playful act between people, and I’m so glad when the sex toys we use help us with some open-ended play. It really let the night stretch on into one big evening of foreplay. We even played remote control dildo trivia- and I’d be lying if I didn’t “accidentally” get some wrong so that the vibrator speed went up. I still don’t know if I could even pick out a favorite from all of Athena’s varied speeds; I really enjoyed playing around with all of them. Compared to other remote control dildos I’ve tried, the wide variety of vibrations made it so I never got bored or annoyed with the sensation.

When our date night was over, the Athena effortlessly transitioned to bedroom play. And the perk of playing with the remote control dildo all night? I was more than ready for more at the end of the evening. With more hands involved, it’s easy to make the pulsating dildo elements more pronounced. My partner was able to help me insert the Athena deeper into my vaginal canal, which definitely helped me find orgasm faster. The silicon works well with water-based lubricants, so it keeps being fun for a long time without drying out or feeling uncomfortable. 

When it was time to clean up, Athena sex toys again delivered. It was easy to wash off in warm water without too much fuss. Charging was made simple with a USB cord– nice because I never seem to have extra batteries on hand. I appreciate that I can continue to store it in the same nice bag it came in until I’m ready to have fun with it again. 

Overall, I really recommend the Athena pulsating vibrator. I think there’s a ton of sex toys out there that are made to look good without actually being good, and the Athena is the exception. If you’re looking for a remote control dildo that’s not just a cheap novelty, this is the one. She both looks tasteful and is a functional delight. I really think sex should be fun, and the Athena is a great way to keep it enjoyable without the intimidation or complexities of some of the more complicated, larger equipment out there. She is super functional for a variety of situations. If I was packing for a trip soon, this would be easy to throw in the suitcase and get a lot of use out of without all the hassle. I really can’t recommend the Athena remote control dildo enough. I hope you try it out!
