Earth Angel Vibrator from Babeland

Want to jack off with less of an environmental impact?  Take a look at Babeland’s Earth Angel, which the manufacturer calls the world first 100% green sex toy.  It’s also made in Ireland; in fact it is the only sex toy currently produced in that lovely country.

What exactly makes Earth Angel environmentally friendly?  First, it comes in a plastic box made of recyclable material.  The toy itself requires no batteries and can be recycled when the time is right by simply sending it back to the manufacturer.  Doing so also nets the owner a 15% discount on a future purchase.

I had my doubts about a vibrator with no batteries.  But like everyone, I’ve felt the keening disappointment of a wank ended far too soon by dead or dying batteries.  Even rechargeable vibes eventually run down, and charging them up again can take hours.  I hoped that Earth Angel would loose me from battery-driven dependence forever.

I’m so happy to report that Earth Angel performed remarkably well.  My partner and I took it to bed fresh out of the box.  The toy needs to be cranked for only four minutes to produce a 30-minute buzz, or eight minutes for a full hour’s worth of pleasure.  He cranked while I waited impatiently.  Too impatiently.  Finally I asked him to put the toy in me while cranking it, and with only a few minor setbacks we finished charging the toy in this delightful manner.

A red light glows to show that charging is going as planned.  Don’t worry about turning the crank in the wrong direction — it only goes one way.  When it’s charged up (or when your arm grows tired, or when your horniness becomes unbearable), just snap the crank back into the base of the toy and hit the on/off toggle button.  Cycle through four increasingly intense speeds with the left button; reduce intensity with the right button.

While the lowest speed produces a low thrum, the highest gives a quite powerful sensation, comparable to that of any standard slim-line vibrator.  It was more than enough power to get me off, a lot, and the hard plastic casing made it effective as a thrusting toy as well.

I’d meant to track the time while we were in bed together, but somehow — somehow! — my attention was distracted.  I’d estimate that it buzzed at least 30 minutes on our first tentative crankings.  Later, when I was by myself, I cranked it up in a more consistent and energetic fashion.  It buzzed away merrily at top speed for a full hour.

This is amazing power for not a lot of work on the user’s part.  And if you need vibrations for longer than an hour, just take a break (who couldn’t use a break after an hour of masturbation?) and crank some more.  You don’t even have to get out of bed.

If you’re ever too lazy to crank, plug in your own USB charger to the Earth Angel.  I don’t currently have a USB charger so I could not test out this aspect of the toy.

The only problem with Earth Angel is that it’s not particularly stylish.  Minimalist, yes, but stylish, not so much.  Perhaps future incarnations will come in different colors (shiny black would be nice) or shapes.  I think a curved g-spot model would be perfect, or maybe another with a flat tip for broader clit stimulation.  Perhaps they’d even consider making a set of interchangeable tips which would fit over the original Earth Angel?

Earth Angel is highly recommended for anyone concerned about greening up their sexual practices.  It would also be great for those who camp, hike, live off the grid, experience frequent power outages or who, like me, can never manage to keep fresh batteries in the house.
