As much as I love big honking dildos, there will always be a place in my heart (and toy box) for cute little clit vibes. Whether they’re on a necklace, squeezable and citrus-shaped, or perched like an adorable bird on my nightstand, I want to try them all.
The Crave Duet Flex is one such diminutive vibe, with a flexible dual-pronged design. It’s about 4 inches long, and about 1.5 inches across at the widest point, making it handily travel-sized. It’s also fairly flat, measuring about half an inch thick. This vibrator would fit easily in a pocket or fairly tiny purse, and it has a travel lock feature to keep it from buzzing in your bag 1. There’s also a nice storage pouch included to keep it free of dust and lint.
The other travel friendly aspect of the Crave Duet Flex is the fact that it plugs directly into any USB port to charge, with no need to pack a cord. If you don’t travel with a laptop, the AC adapter for your phone’s charging cord (or any USB converter) will do the job just as well.
One thing I love about the flat, rectangular shape is that the Crave Duet Flex won’t roll away like many other petite vibes. My Tango, Mia and Crave Bullet have all done frustrating disappearing acts on me, but this one stays put.
The Crave Duet Flex is not a powerhouse. It’s not going to de-throne the Tango for intensity, but I don’t need it to. I’m quite happy in the moderate vibration zone. The lowest intensity is fairly rumbly, and especially nice on the pulse pattern setting. As with most vibes, the Duet Flex gets buzzier as you turn up the vibration speed, but it’s still enjoyable rather than numbing or itchy.
The vibrations of the Crave Duet Flex are focused in the flexible tips so they aren’t muffled by distance from the motor. Since I’m a fan of indirect clitoral stimulation, I like the way the vibrating tips “straddle” my clit. I’m also seriously impressed with the way those tips feel hugging my nipples, providing not only vibration but a little squeeze as well. This is a fun design for all kinds of sensation play, and what sets it apart from the other mini vibes in my collection.
The Duet Flex is controlled by three buttons, two that adjust intensity up or down and a third to toggle between pattern modes. The controls are very intuitive, but because of the vibe’s small size, it’s easy to accidentally push a button when you don’t mean to. After some initial mishaps, I discovered that holding the Duet Flex with my fingers on its sides kept me from inadvertent button mashing.
Finally, the Crave Duet Flex is waterproof, so cleaning is easy. Just make sure the silicone end cap that covers the USB charging mechanism is securely in place, and you’re good to go. You can also use the Duet Flex in the shower or bathtub.
The Crave Duet Flex is a neat little vibe with a unique feel that has earned it a place in my Clit Kit. If you need earth-shaking power in a small package, or you want a mini that can add vibration to your favorite dildo, you’re better off going with the Tango.
