Why you should care

Because with three sex toys in one, it’s a handful.

The origins of the vibrator are shrouded in myth, but legend has it that Cleopatra serviced herself with a hollow gourd filled with angry bees. Naturally, this evolved into something more portable and less likely to cause PETA riots, but today we exist in a space where there are so many choices that the “buzzy” beginner can get a little overwhelmed. Instead of investing in a sex chest to rival Hefner’s collection, a DIY vibrator might be just the ticket.

Je Joue’s new Ooh line centers around a vibrating motor that produces a range of low-frequency, tingle-inducing buzzes and works with interchangeable attachments — think of it as a multitasking solution. The idea behind the mix-and-match sex toy is to let users experience different pleasurable sensations, experimenting with options they might have otherwise passed on. For now there are three options — cock ring, pebble and vibrator — with plans to expand the line in 2016. Then you’ll be able to add a butt plug, rabbit attachment and G-spot vibrator to your vibrator tool kit.

The motor and all of the vibe pieces are waterproof and coated in body-safe silicone. “The vision was to design a sex toy range that was available at a more accessible price point,” explains Jane Welsh, Je Joue’s global marketing manager. As the vibrator motor is generally the most expensive part of any sex toy, pairing one with multiple attachments seems like a handy solution. Orgasms are not just for those who can afford them, right?

The bright colors and non-phallic shape make the attachments look more like high-tech kitchen gadgets.

The modular method could be encouraging for newbies, as it’s a gentle approach to a salacious arena. Once comfortable with the snap-on classic vibe (available in coral and hot pink), users might be open to trying something else. The bright colors and non-phallic shape make the attachments look more like high-tech kitchen gadgets than bedroom pleasure tools, which might be appreciated by those more reserved … or with nosy roommates. Because the vibrator doesn’t look like a sex toy, when the time comes to charge your motor (as it were), you can leave it plugged into your computer, via USB, without worrying too much about having your naughty side discovered.

The Ooh Je Joue motor is $50 and accessories are sold separately, ranging in price from $25 to $40 — something to keep in mind as you start filling up your toy box. Something else to consider: The mix-and-match sex toy arena is still new. The technology behind these modular products is still evolving, says sexologist Charlie Glickman, and it’s hard to determine whether they’ll be as effective as existing toys. And yet, while there’s no guarantee that the Ooh will put extra “ooh” into your sex life, this kind of DIY vibe can offer a safer buzz to your nether regions than a vessel full of bees.
