Some of you may remember my giveaway for Trojan Vibrations last month. They also sent me three vibrators, which I’ve been working on reviewing. The Trojan Vibrations Tri-Phoria Vibrator is a small, somewhat trumpet-shaped vibrator (which makes it easy to handle) that is equipped with three interchangeable tips; one plastic, the other two pure silicone. Trojan, of course, is more well-known for their condoms. However, they’ve been introducing quite a bit of vibrators to their line lately.

Materials – Silicone & Hard Plastic
Most of the vibrator is made of hard plastic. The only bits that are silicone are two of the tips. This toy is phthalates-free, latex-free, and non-porous.
Hard Plastic Stimulator Tip
If you’re familiar with the classic Pocket Rocket, I’m sure you’re familiar with the design of this tip. The middle bump is supposed to pinpoint stimulation on the clitoris while the other bumps provide stimulation that surrounds it. I’ve never been big on Pocket Rockets, so this really isn’t my thing.
Silicone Flickering Tip
Despite what the directions have this tip labeled as, and what reviews I’ve seen on Amazon have said, this tip doesn’t flicker. At least, it doesn’t live up to my idea of flickering. It also surprised me to see people saying that this is better than oral that anyone could ever give. Umm…okay… Yeah, it’s flexible and sort of tongue-like, but it’s nowhere near being as flexible as a tongue. Of the three tips, this one does carry the vibrations the best, though.
Silicone Domed Tip
I liked this tip the least. It really doesn’t seem to carry the vibrations as well as the other two tips do. Unless I really press this tip into my clit, I don’t feel much at all. The ribbing on this tip is also very subtle, and it’s not easily felt. There’s a little bit of give to the material, but not much. I really have to pinch it to feel any give.
Set to the highest intensity, the Tri-Phoria rivals my husband’s electric shaver. The lowest setting is about as loud as his little trimmer, and can be heard through a closed door.
It’s got a decent amount of power, maybe a 3.5 out of 5, but the vibrations are buzzy. Compared to the deeper vibrations of the G4 Big Boss that I reviewed, this vibe just doesn’t cut it for me.
In my opinion, toy wipes would probably be the best method of cleaning. You could, however, wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution. Since it’s waterproof, you could also just wash it with soap and warm water. Be sure to remove the tips, so you can clean every bit of the vibrator and tips.
The Tri-Phoria comes with it’s own storage pouch for safe keeping. I would recommend using the storage pouch over other methods of storage. Do not let it come into contact with other sex toys (melting can occur when toys touch for extended periods of time), and don’t expose it to extreme heat or cold.
I’ve tried to like the Tri-Phoria, but it’s really not my cup of tea. I really only like one of the tips, and the noise from the buzzy vibrations is just so distracting. The controls irritate me a bit, too. Plus, the packaging was one of the most obnoxious I’ve had to open, given my 4 years of reviewing sex toys. Other than that, the materials are safe, and it’s easy to clean.
