  • Are looking for non prostate stimulation.
  • Like smaller plugs.
  • Are tired of the jackhammer-only approach to vibrating plugs.
  • Like to use a plug in the shower.

  • Are expecting prostate stimulation.
  • Want a fuller feeling from the plug.
  • Are not a fan of remotes to get the most out of a device.


The b-Vibe Trio is a smallish to medium-sized vibrating plug with three powerful motors. These motors are arranged in a manner that promises to give you amazing sensations from very soft to jackhammer strong. Unlike the previous rimming plugs from b-Vibe, there is nothing mechanically stimulating about the Trio, it’s all done with vibration.

I have previously used two of the b-Vibe Rimming plugs and really enjoy them. Though they are not prostate massagers, these plugs do a great job to enhance pleasure during foreplay and sex. The novelty of having mechanical stimulation right in one of your most sensitive spots is exhilarating, to say the least. So, I was very excited to get my hands on the b-Vibe Trio and see what it had to offer.

First Impressions

The packaging and charge cable was identical to the other models I have. It was straightforward to get it all pulled out, washed up, and on charge. The first thing I noticed was how small it was compared to the larger b-Vibe Rimming plug. I actually prefer the smaller petite rimming plug and the b-Vibe Trio plug was almost identical to that. The Trio looks and feels like a premium toy and I couldn’t wait to give it a try.

Trying It Out

Once I was able to use it, the b-Vibe Trio was easy to insert and get going. Right away, I realized that the Trio shared the same (and only) flaw, in my opinion: you can only adjust intensity of the vibrations with the remote. I was able to cycle the patterns on a medium setting with the on-board button but to make the vibrations softer or more intense, I have to use the remote. Relaxing with my wife, we played with the settings while getting into the mood. I was impressed with the vibration patterns of the Trio. Even though it’s only vibrating motors, the Trio feels like something actually moving around in there. One of the settings actually feels like electricity moving from base to tip and back again and I was able to feel everything! I immediately liked this toy.


One thing that b-Vibe went above and beyond with on the Trio is the vibrations. Toy makers tend to have the idea that everyone wants a jackhammer and anything less is a waste of time. Not so with the b-Vibe Trio. The vibrations go down to a very low, almost imperceptible tingle that gradually builds you up over time. The only other toy I’ve experience this with was the Aneros Helix Syn V and this is more than on-par with that. It’s a gentle build that ends up driving me wild over time. I was able to gradually increase the intensity while building toward climax and never going numb or getting bored. The second time we used the b-Vibe Trio I immediately put the intensity right to the top, just to see. It was too much. While I liked the highest setting during the last session, it was a gradual increase. Going right to “11” right away was almost painful and would have caused me to go numb and not enjoy it. I turned it back down and played with the patterns, instead.

Vibration Patterns

Usually with a vibrating toy, I like some patterns and don’t like others. There’s really no in between, it’s love or hate. With the b-Vibe Trio, I enjoy all of the patterns, some just more than others. It’s incredible to me that there is nothing mechanically moving like in the rimming plugs. The Trio feels alive with some of the patterns and it’s very stimulating. All of them are visualized on page 14 of the user manual (see below), but my favorite is setting 5, because each motor ramps up then down in intensity from the base to the tip in a wave-like pattern. On low power, this setting drives me nuts! Because of the way b-Vibe has put these vibrations together, none of them disappoint. In fact, after setting 5, the morse code-like setting 9 is my next favorite. It keeps you guessing and sometimes surprises you with a strong one.

The Remote Issue

For a lot of people, adjusting the intensity only with the remote isn’t an issue. It’s great in the bedroom and you can adjust settings without reaching around or stopping the action. Where I get hung up on it, though, is when I take the toy into the shower. Since the remote is not waterproof, you either can’t adjust the intensity or you risk ruining your remote. Other toys on the market have gotten around this by using a combination of click, double-click, and hold. If b-Vibe keeps the remote and adds full functionality to the single button on the device, in my opinion, the b-Vibe Trio would be a perfect plug.

The b-Vibe Trio looks and feels like a high-quality toy. The silicone is smooth and the toy feels sturdy. The magnetic charging cable is a big plus because you don’t have to worry about breaking a micro USB or other plug.

The b-Vibe Trio is very easy to use. It’s small enough not to be intimidating and the controls are simple. The only thing that would make this easier to use would be either a waterproof remote, or intensity control on the device itself. Also, the toy did try to slip out a bit during sex, so be ready to deal with that.

As has been my experience with all b-Vibe products, the b-Vibe Trio is very high-quality. The toy, the packaging and the accessories all are well made and worth every penny. The fact that the motors have such a diverse range of power shows a lot of though went into the stimulation that they deliver.

At about $130, the b-Vibe Trio is well worth the money. While it’s smaller than a lot of plugs, it packs quite a punch. The really amazing thing about this plug is the thought put into the softer vibrations. To me, this makes this plug worth more than 99% of the vibrating plugs out there. You also get a nice bag to store the device and charge cable in so that you can stay organized.

Performance is where the b-Vibe Trio really shines. Keeping in mind that it’s not a prostate massager, the vibrations seem to stimulate everywhere. The lighter settings on the Trio almost feel like electricity as they pass up and down from the base of the toy to the tip, and back. If you want more stimulation, the b-Vibe Trio will deliver. Jumping right up to the highest setting was actually uncomfortable until I was warmed up a bit.

Packaging for the b-Vibe Trio is neat, elegant, and informative. It comes wrapped in plastic to ensure no one has opened it since the factory. Inside that is the outer sleeve that slides off to reveal a simple teal box with a magnetically latching lid. Once you swing the lid out of the way, the Trio is nestled into a form-fitting bubble of plastic. Under the plastic you will find the carrying case with the instructions and the charge cord.

The b-Vibe Trio is made of body safe silicone and is waterproof. This makes cleaning the Trio super easy. Warm water, a toy cleaner or mild soap, and some light scrubbing get the toy squeaky clean and you don’t have to worry about killing the device rinsing it off. The included storage case is a great way to store the Trio and keep it lint free and out of sight.

I really like the b-Vibe Trio. This is the first plug I’ve found that took a subtle approach to vibration power but could still deliver strength when needed. No matter what type of plug you’re looking for (unless it’s something really big) the b-Vibe trio will fill the hole!

You can download the instruction manual for the b-Vibe Trio here.

It can, but the lower settings of the b-Vibe Trio are quite gentle. This toy gives you the full range from barely there to jackhammer.

It is not the smallest toy out there but most beginners should be alright starting with the b-Vibe Trio.

Water-based lube only. Other types of lube can deteriorate the silicone.

Not really. The b-Vibe Trio is a plug, not a prostate massager. It does feel good on its own, though.
