Smile Makers Adult Toys Singapore
If your friends are as mischievous as ours, you’ve probably pitched in to buy condoms or adult toys as a gag birthday gift.
With a common goal to embarrass the recipient, huge and intimidating dildos tend to be a popular choice. However, with their impossible size, they’re often left unused.
To encourage female sexual well-being, the team at Smile Makers have now come up with slim, pastel-coloured toys you won’t need to sneakily creep into R21 stores to buy.
Available at local beauty & health retailers in Singapore, we decided to try these adult toys you can even find along the supermarket aisle.
The Tennis Coach, S$64.95 (Girl, 23, Straight—Tested with a partner)
I’ve only tried disposable cock rings in the past, so I was slightly apprehensive about toys that ‘go in’. However, after unboxing ‘the Tennis Coach’, I was relieved.
Unlike the massive dildos displayed in the storefront of sex stores, ‘the Tennis Coach’ didn’t look like it would hurt; the bright yellow toy was slim and smooth to the touch.
Since I’m not the type who reads package instructions, I liked how the toy’s design allowed me to instinctively understand how it worked.
With the accompanying Smile Makers lubricant, S$19.95, my partner and I lubed up before we were ready to go. Unlike other types of lubes I’ve used, this had no plastic-smelling scent, was a non-sticky and non-oily texture that resembled natural vaginal fluid.
How It Felt
Insertion was easy and comfortable, even though it was a little too stiff for my liking. But when we turned on the vibration mode, it was a whole new world.
While using the toy as a vibrator, we decided to switch it up and go at it by ‘doggy’ style. Tip: this is how the various vibration speeds come in handy.
Moving it against my clit at the highest setting was not only pleasurable for me but also my partner. That night, he came fast as it stimulated his dick.
Overall, it was a good experience which helped us spice things up in the bedroom. Although ‘the Tennis Coach’ is versatile and easy to use, I feel it works better as an ‘outside’ vibrator. I only wished the toy was longer and more penetrative!
The Millionaire, S$64.95 (Girl, 25, Straight—Tested alone and with a partner)
As a toy newbie, I chose ‘The Millionaire’ as it was the least intimidating design in Smile Maker’s collection. Shaped to resemble a cigar, the pastel purple design made it look unusually cute.
While adult toys often come with multiple bumps or heads for stimulation, this vibrator’s simple design made it easy to understand. With its silky-smooth texture, it didn’t make me apprehensive about putting things ‘up there’.
I figured, even if my mum found ‘the Millionaire’ in the house, it could pass off as a handheld massager. Imagine what she’d have thought if she saw a hyper-realistic 20cm ‘BBC’?
However, after I placed in an AAA battery and switched it on, I went, “Oh damn, this little guy is strong.”
How It Felt
After slathering the Smile Makers lubricant, on, I placed the toy on my clit. The tingly sensation made me shudder, but it wasn’t an immediate mind-blower like how it’s portrayed in movies or porn.
As I played around with the vibration modes, I learnt to ease into the mood. I think mental preparation makes an 80% difference in how sexually aroused you feel. Tip: play some music, dim the lights, stalk your crush (whatever works), so your mind isn’t distracted by non-sexy things.
‘The Millionaire’ felt good when used on my clit or placed sideways on the ‘lips’, but I found the bullet-head too pointed and stiff for penetration. While ‘inside’, I wasn’t a fan of the length and stiffness. I would say it helped me to get into the mood, but not enough to reach climax.
When used with my partner, though, it was certainly a handy toy that spiced up our routine without getting in the way. While penetrating, his hands could roam free while using this toy for extra fun.
if you’re looking for a toy as an additional perk for your sex routine, this is a fuss-free toy I recommend. The battery lasts up to four hours, the smooth surface is easy to clean and the waterproof feature allows you to use it even in the bathroom. Plus, at 40dB, it’s quiet!
With a toy, it’s faster for you to get into the mood before intercourse. But if you’re solely depending on this for a ‘happy ending’, then I suggest you pair this external stimulator with a dildo that works better ‘inside’.
The Surfer, S$29.95 (Girl, 21, Straight—Tested alone)
When I picked up ‘The Surfer’, I was intrigued by its size, seeing that it was the smallest among the collection. I wanted something that was discreet and convenient to carry around, and ‘The Surfer’ definitely ticked those boxes.
It’s roughly the size of an average person’s palm, and I could easily wrap my hand around it without suspicion that I was carrying a vibrator.
The texture is soft and smooth, and its regular shape made it less intimidating for a new adult toy user like myself. Also, the smiley face on the switch added a quirky touch to the device.
How It Felt
When I first tried it on my hand, I thought the vibration was too intense even on the lowest setting. But when I switched the vibrator to pulsation mode, the varying intensities worked its magic.
Thanks to its silicone texture and the lube, the stick rubs smoothly on my clit. And when I used it on the highest mode, I eventually orgasmed.
As someone who’s never used an adult toy before, I wanted my first time to be ‘special’. However, as ‘The Surfer’ is one of their bestsellers, my expectations were probably too high.
Overall, it was a nay for me because it took too long for me to climax. At times, I was too impatient and lost my enthusiasm to keep going because I wasn’t feeling it.
The Frenchman, S$64.95 (Girl, 21, Bisexual—Tested alone)
I’ve always thought of getting a ‘personal massager’ on several occasions but never got around to do it until now. I was initially apprehensive about vibrators as I feared it could potentially explode when it was inside me.
However, I liked how ‘The Frenchman’ was discreet and didn’t scream “LOOK AT ME! I’M A SEX TOY!” But when compared to the other Smile Makers toys, it looked the most intimidating due to its unusual shape. Nonetheless, the pastel-blue colour made it seem more ‘friendly’.
I faced a little difficulty figuring out how ‘The Frenchman’ worked but luckily, the website’s How-To animated video tutorial helped me out.
How it felt
As a person who prefers clit stimulation, ‘The Frenchman’ is perfect for me as it doesn’t require any penetration. Smooth and super flexible, the toy mimics an actual tongue quite convincingly.
It was also way easier to use than I expected it to be. The vibrator’s button faced upward, which made it easily accessible; I could change speeds without having to pause and go “wait ah”.
I love the different vibration modes—particularly the different pulsing patterns. I used the toy multiple times and found it to be the perfect way to ‘finish’.
As someone who likes receiving oral sex, this is definitely a yay for me. It’s easy to use and handle. I would recommend this to others who’re looking to try intimate toys.
The Fireman, S$64.95 (Girl, 23, Bisexual—Tested alone)
When I unpackaged ‘the Fireman’, I was puzzled by its unusual design. Shaped like a lighted candle, I had no idea how I was supposed to use it. But after viewing the instructional video online, my confusion cleared up. The visual representation really helped me understand how to use it.
As I personally enjoy penetration more than clit stimulation, I was initially apprehensive. The texture of the toy itself was smooth, but the vibration felt decently strong in my hands. Nonetheless, I decided to cast my doubts aside and test ‘The Fireman’ with an open mind.
How it felt
The gentler vibration settings were not as strong as I had expected. I only felt pleasure when it was on the highest setting.
I did manage to orgasm and to my surprise, I found that I liked it. Considering that I don’t like ‘outside’ stimulation, I felt being able to orgasm was a sign that ‘The Fireman’ was doing its job.
I would say yay to ‘The Fireman’, especially for girls who enjoy clit stimulation more than penetration.
The toy changed the way I thought I could pleasure myself, and I’d definitely use it again, especially if I don’t get the D!
