BMS Factory Pillow Talk Sassy review: powerful G-spot vibrator
A finger on my clitoral glans can bring me to orgasm in under a minute, but I’m far from unfussy about vibrations. My clitoris is discerning in a different way. Where other reviewers often prioritize power, I care a lot more about range and control. This is where the Pillow Talk Sassy comes in.
With the PowerBullet technology that BMS Factory is known for, the Sassy is plenty rumbly. And not just that, but its continuous range of speeds is unparalleled by just about any other vibrator brand I’ve ever tried. The combination of rumble and range is almost the exact epitome of what my clitoris finds important.
For $43, I would have fan girled over using this vibrator externally, fine-tuning the speed for multiple orgasms. The G-spotting head, though, totally sealed the deal and secured the Sassy’s status as one of my favorite vibrators.

The Pillow Talk Sassy as a G-spot vibrator
First things first: the Sassy is an insertable vibrator with a 1.5″ wide head, a generously curved G-spotting neck, and a flexible shaft. Its head is only slightly bulbous: moderate girth, and not super round or front-loaded. It also has 5″ of insertable length, allowing it to hit a variety of G-spot depths.
For me and many others, this vibrator will fall into a “Goldilocks” happy medium. The front-facing part of the tip is just slightly flattened, and enough to knead my G-spot, but still round enough to thrust.
The bulbousness and curve are enough to nestle along the curve of my pubic bone and stay there. There’s no awkwardly straight tapering that makes my vagina want to suck in the tip way past the G-spot.
All in all, the Sassy’s head is a gentle option for easy aiming without being super rigid or direct. However, if you want something more intensely curved but still flexible, you may want to consider the Embrace G Wand (more on that in the next two sections) for its broader, more bulbous head.
Why is speed control so important to me?
If you consider the kind of manual stimulation I like, it may put my pickiness into perspective. With a partner’s finger on my clit, I tell him to slow down after I orgasm, and then pick up the speed again to go for another. Stimulation speed needs to be very strategic if I want to cut the refractory period between orgasms and have many in quick succession.
I’m more sensitive right after an orgasm, so continuing to go fast kills my pleasure plateau. For this reason, if I turn up a vibrator’s speed to quickly push myself over the edge, I want either a.) a subtle but discernible speed change, or b.) to quickly be able to turn the speed back down.
Great G-spot vibrators for speed control
For option a., the BMS Factory Pillow Talk Sassy is hands-down the best fit for me I have ever tried, featuring a continuous range of steady speeds. They’re all controlled by one button. For option b., the California Exotics Embrace G Wand. The G Wand is also a rechargeable G-spot vibrator. But unlike the Sassy, it features 6 discrete (separate) speeds and 6 patterns, controlled by a 3-button panel.
I love both of them for different reasons. The Embrace G Wand has more precise and intuitive control, but the Sassy is rumblier and has far more vibration range on both the slow end and the fast end of the speed spectrum.
I previously wrote that the Embrace G Wand has “all the range I want,” but that only applies to the G Wand’s less rumbly vibration quality. I find that because the Pillow Talk Sassy‘s vibrations are deeper, its lower speeds and its higher speeds both are more enjoyable.
BMS Factory’s PowerBullet® vibrators
Honestly, probably 80% of the reason that I wanted to try the Pillow Talk Sassy was because I knew that BMS Factory designed it with a rechargeable Powerbullet motor. Literally every single Powerbullet toy I had ever tried had amazing vibrations. Every last one: the Jopen Lust L2, Swan Wand, and now, the Pillow Talk Sassy.
To get a better idea of how powerful a Powerbullet vibrator can be, consider that the BMS Factory Palmpower Wand is touted as a lightweight alternative to the Hitachi. The vibrations aren’t quite as rumbly as the Tango, but they’re as close as you can get for the price range.
And I’m not just saying that PowerBullet is amazing just to say it; concrete attributes make it so. The only one that you probably care about, though, is that the copper weight in the motor is heavier than most vibrators’. As a result, the vibrations are deeper and richer. There’s literally more weight to them.
I was so impressed upon turning the Sassy on and hearing how low the motor purred. And it’s not a “why does this weak-ass setting exist?” kind of low-speed. Quite the contrary! It’s rumbly enough that it doesn’t need high speeds to compensate, and the low speed helps me appreciate the rumble even more.
When I escalated the speed, I actually thought to myself at some point, “HOW ARE THERE EVEN HIGHER SETTINGS THAN WHAT I WAS ON JUST NOW?”
Pillow Talk Sassy’s “Press-and-Hold” control
The Pillow Talk Sassy features Power Bullet’s “press-and-hold” control. Basically, you press the Swarovski crystal button on the base to turn the vibrations on, and you hold the button to ramp up and gradually increase speed.
You can’t turn it down. However, I can comfortably choose a speed that will yield multiple orgasms even if I continue stimulation. Thus, I’m willing to overlook the lack of a “down” button.
Another downside is that the control is contrary to the convention. In most button-controlled vibrators, holding a button turns the toy on or off, while pressing a button toggles the speed setting. It doesn’t bother me, because I’m very familiar with other vibrators by BMS Factory, but it is something to be aware of.
Lastly, to turn on the travel lock, just press the button three times.
Storage and cleaning
This vibrator comes with, of course, a charger, but also a sturdy box, a satin pouch, and cleaning brush— all appreciated at the $43 price point!
The box has a clean design with a foam (think of kids’ craft foam) insert to keep the vibrator in place and a small window to showcase the toy. This is a small complaint, but I wish they used cardboard or plastic encasing instead of foam. I understand that the dense foam can fit more tightly against the toy, but it reeks of the PVC shower curtain smell. I recommend throwing the foam away.
The vibrator itself, though, is made of body-safe silicone. You can use water-based or oil-based lube with it, and clean it with soap and water.
If you really want to disinfect it, spray the insertable portion with mild bleach solution. It’s splash-proof but not submersible, so don’t let it sit in bleach. I also suggest keeping bleach away from the metal part on the handle.
That brings me to my next point: there’s a lot of texture on the handle. It’s a non-factor for me because, to reach my G-spot, I don’t use much of the shaft. Thus, my vag gunk and lube rarely get near the handle.
I hesitate to use it for cervix stimulation, though. If you do insert this vibrator deeply, the included cleaning brush helps dig into the nooks and crannies of the toy’s surface.
Overall thoughts on the BMS Pillow Talk Sassy
I wouldn’t recommend the Sassy people who…
- want a more generous curve – consider instead the California Exotics G Wand, which is still flexible but more bulbous
- want a rigid G-spotting or P-spotting neck
- want to reach a full-speed boost right away – it does take a few seconds to ramp up
- are bothered by vibrations on their hands
I would recommend the Sassy to people who…
- prioritize a huge vibration range
- want an affordable but rumbly G-spot vibrator
- like having low, purring vibrations to warm up
- turn up vibration speed for multiple orgasms
The one major change I’d make is to add a “down” button, but for the price tag, I’m not complaining. If you think you might fan squeal over PowerBullet as much as I do, you can get the Pillow Talk Sassy from Peepshow Toys in pink or baby blue for $43.
I received this item in exchange for my thorough, honest, and unbiased review. I do use affiliate links throughout my posts. However, if I don’t care for a toy, I’ll definitely let you know, even if it goes the grain, or even if I really wanted to like toy. Thank you, Peepshow Toys!
