Product Spotlight: Sybian

Sybian History

Over the course of the past three decades, the Sybian has become a household name to those in the sex-positive community and to sex toy/sex machine connoisseurs worldwide. The inventor, Dave Lampert, founded Sybian’s concept in the 1970’s and eventually launched the product in 1987 after working on various prototypes. Sybian was named after an ancient Greek colony located in southern Italy, Sybaris, which was famous for luxurious living…and rightfully so as the Sybian is definitely a luxury product! The company standing behind the Sybian, Abco Research Associates, is located in Monticello, IL and (in our opinion) are doing an all-around fantastic job!

About the Sybian

To put it simply, the Sybian is a machine that produces intense pleasure and explosive orgasms. When we say intense pleasure and orgasms… we mean mind-blowing pleasure and lots of orgasms! This amazing machine produces stimulation through vibrations, rotations, or a combination of both. You have the ability to adjust the stimulation from mild to wild with the simple spin of a dial.

The machine itself weighs 22 pounds and its base is 13.25 inches wide and 12.5 inches long, making it extremely sturdy. Sybian’s height is approximately 10 inches allowing comfortable positioning when straddling and going for an orgasmic ride.

 

Sybian is available in wide range of colors including the following: Classic Black, Blushing Red, Playful Pink, Passion Purple Blissful Blue, and Down to Earth (brown). There are several attachments available and each one is designed to provide different sensations, some internally, some externally, and others that do both. Currently, there are 7 premium silicone attachments: Silky Smooth Flat Top (purple or black), Orb, G-Wave, Triple Delight, Spiral, and G-Egg. Additionally, there are 11 classic attachments made from C-Flex TPE (available in beige or brown): Smooth FlatTop, Nubbed FlatTop, Small, Medium, Large RealLike ‘Cover’, XLarge RealLike ‘Cover’, Jumbo RealLike ‘Cover’, GMini, GMax, Double, and Finger.

 

Our Experience

An amazing representative from Abco Research reached out to us asking if we’d be interested in reviewing one of their Sybian demo models. And, of course, we immediately said “Yes!” We were given an opportunity to review the Sybian and 5 attachments for approximately four weeks…and we had tons of fun! With any new product review, there always seems to be a “learning curve” involved and especially with this one. Read on as we’ll share our entire experience with you.

 

Delivery & packaging

We were so excited about the Sybian being delivered. It was ordered/shipped on Friday and received by the following Tuesday, very impressive! Once the delivery person handed over the package, we were really surprised by how heavy the package was. The package and labeling was very discreet with no indication that a Sybian was inside. Upon opening, we found the contents neatly packed in such a way that would prevent damage during shipping. Unboxing was simple and all the attachments were wrapped separately in plastic. Each attachment was coated in corn starch so be sure to wash the attachments with mild soap followed by a warm water rinse before using.

 

Setup

Setting up the Sybian was a breeze! After unboxing, simply attach the power cord to the main unit and plug into the wall outlet. Next, pick the attachment of your choice and place over the attachment mount. After the attachment is in place, add a generous amount of lube, hop on and go for a wild ride. Simple, right?


 Note: If you use an insertable attachment, be sure to use a stem or spring. The stems provide more rigidity to the attachment. Springs work perfectly as they allow the attachment to be more flexible. Also, there is a set of risers included which are designed to raise the attachment to provide better stimulation.

 

Controls

The control pad is extremely easy to use. There’s only 2 switches and 2 dials. The left toggle switch powers the rotation and the dial above controls the intensity. The right toggle switch powers the vibrations and the intensity is controlled by the dial above it. We had lots of fun switching between the various rotations and vibration intensities!

 

Our Experience with the Sybian

Okay, we’ve finally arrived at the best part. By now we’re sure you’re wanting to know the juicy details about our experience. To say the least, it was quite an experience and we were extremely lucky to have an opportunity to review such a wonderful product.

 

The Sybian
Robin says:
I had a really rough start with the Sybian. For whatever reason, I think I was a bit intimidated by the size of the Sybian as well as its overall intensity. This was the first time I’ve tried a machine that you straddle. Normally, I’m used to using toys that are much smaller, and with the ability to use while lying on my back. That’s not the case with Sybian…I had to straddle this thing like a cowgirl at a rodeo. My first time using the Sybian was on the floor, and I’ll have to admit that my knees started aching which prevented me from focusing on the stimulation I was receiving. I was able to remedy this in 2 ways: I placed it on the bed, and I also used a fitness mat when on the floor (Sybian also offers a floor mat, I highly recommend purchasing one).

The Sybian also comes with a small bench-like piece (shown above). I found this to be very valuable as I was able to place the control on it for easy access. And, with some of the attachments, I was able to lean forward and rest my forearms on it to achieve maximum stimulation. The bench is extremely sturdy and does a great job with weight distribution.

Each attachment had a very unique feel. It took me a little while figuring each one out. Thankfully, with the help of the risers, stems, and springs…I was able to achieve orgasm from most of them. Before I tell you about each attachment, I’d better let Liam chime in. LOL!

Liam says: I’ve gotta say that I’m very jealous of Robin. Seeing this beast of a machine left me envious and wishing I was bearing a labia, clitoris, and vagina. The orgasms that Sybian produces are simply out of this world. Even though I wasn’t able to try it for myself, I had an amazing time watching the action from the sidelines…and sometimes partaking in the fun.

Robin preferred to be alone the first few times while testing the Sybian and each of the attachments received. I was home during each time and it was very easy for me to hear the machine. As parents, I can definitely say that this is one product you won’t want to use when the kids are home. After the first few trials, Robin expressed that some of the attachments were somewhat painful for her. Luckily, Karen (our Sybian guru), shared some pointers which helped make the entire experience much more enjoyable.  Also, Robin appeared to enjoy the Sybian more when I was involved in some way. Although we enjoy solo time, the two of us always prefer using products together as it really spices things up!

 

Sybian Attachments

The Sybian attachments are easy to install. One end of the attachment fits under the attachment mount  and the other end is simply stretched over the opposite end of the attachment mount. The insertable attachments will require the stem or spring which helps to secure the attachment even more. Here’s our thoughts on each attachment that we reviewed:

Silky Smooth Flat Top

Robin says: I always prefer clitoral stimulation over vaginal or G-spot stimulation. I found the Silky Smooth Flat Top to be my favorite attachment exactly for this reason. The small hump on the Flat Top did a marvelous job in shaking and gyrating against my clit. I had no problems whatsoever in achieving orgasm. In fact, on most occasions, this attachment left me feeling like my vagina was part of the Niagara Falls. For squirting orgasms, this was my “go to” attachment. Liam and I had tons of fun using this together. For anyone wanting some intense vibrations on their clit or labia, this attachment Is the way to go!

Liam says: It’s true…we had lots of fun using Silky Smooth Flat Top together. After Robin became familiar with this attachment, she soon invited me into the bedroom to get in on the action. The first time I was involved, Robin let me run the controls. It was super-sexy watching Robin’s reaction as I slowly increased the vibration intensity (and even sexier when I added rotations). The most memorable experience for me also involved this attachment. During this experience Robin asked me to stand directly in front of her. She immediately turned the Sybian on, asked me to remove my shorts, and proceeded to give me a blow job as she rocked back-and-forth on the machine. This was, by far, the hottest blow job I’ve ever received!

 

GMini

Robin Says: This was one of the attachments that I didn’t like. The GMini seemed to be a bit too bulky when using the Sybian’s rotation setting. At least for me, it didn’t hit the G-spot and simply left an uncomfortable ‘fullness’ in my vagina. I also felt much of the same discomfort when using the vibrations only. I tried it with both the stem and spring and it just didn’t work well for me. Although it didn’t work out for me, for anyone that prefers fullness, this will definitely be a good fit for you.

 

Medium

Robin Says: I had lots of fun with the Medium. The size of the Medium was perfect as its overall shape is more uniform and more like other insertable toys that I like. Unlike the GMini, this one worked really well for me when using the spring. I prefer flexibility over rigidity, thus the spring worked better versus the stem. Both vibrations and/or rotations were very pleasing and achieving orgasm was pretty simple. The Medium was especially fun with Liam involved. I’ll let him tell you more about that…

Liam Says: Oh my…we had some fun with Medium! This attachment was one of the longer ones that Robin chose. It definitely felt there was a threesome going on in our bedroom. On one occasion, I blindfolded Robin, approached her from behind, and started kissing her neck. I proceeded to rub her back, rub her front (paying close attention to her breasts and nipples) and made her moan in ecstasy while the Medium attachment did its job rotating and vibrating inside her. This was a very fun attachment!

 

Large RealLike ‘Cover’

Robin Says: Typically I consider myself to be somewhat of a “size queen.” However, the Large RealLike ‘Cover’ was the other attachment that I didn’t really care for. It felt great when first inserting it, but when I added vibrations and/or rotations to the mix, it was just too much for me. The one thing that I did love about the cover was that it was very soft and squishy…it felt amazing without any power.

Note: The cover itself is hollow as indicated by the picture on the left. Using a little bit of lube inside the cover, it simply slides over top of the Medium attachment. After doing so, hop on this thick cock and let the vibrations and/or rotations begin!

 

Triple Delight

Robin Says: The Triple Delight is definitely a fun attachment. The name fits its description perfectly as it delightfully stimulates the clitoris, G-spot, and anus at the same time. When I first used the Triple Delight, I’ll admit, it was a bit overwhelming. The insertable portion felt amazing and I loved the way it nestled against my G-spot. As the two nubs were vibrating against my clit and anus, I muttered, “ho, ho, ho, holy shit!” I closed my eyes while gently rocking backing and forth and it couldn’t have been more than 2 minutes passed before I gushed all over. If you fantasize about having simultaneous anal/clit/G-spot stimulation, you’ll definitely need this attachment!

Liam Says: I was a mere spectator while Robin played with the Triple Delight. She expressed how overwhelming all the stimulation was, therefore I decided to sit back and watch her in action (with her permission, of course). As much as I wanted to touch and caress her, I thought it might be just a little too much. With that said, I laid on the bed like a little boy watching cartoons on Saturday morning, as Robin and Sybian had their way with each other on the bedroom floor. For me, it was a very surreal experience watching Robin’s facial expressions while she straddled this amazing attachment. Robin was so sexy with her eyes closed, panting, and holding back as if she was going to scream out loud like Xena the warrior princess.

 

Sybian Fluidproof Cover


Robin Says: The Sybian Fluidproof Cover is definitely something to consider when purchasing a Sybian. It is definitely a “must have” especially if you’re a squirter like I am. Liam and I are no strangers when it comes to fluid proof products and we were both ecstatic when we heard that Sybian & Sheets of San Francisco collaborated to design something specifically for the Sybian. We found that the cover fits perfectly and is easy to remove and clean after some messy fun.

 

Sliquid Sybian Lube Cube

High quality lubrication is definitely something you’ll want to have on hand when using a Sybian. We highly recommend this assortment of lubes made by Sliquid (our favorite brand). The cube comes with 12 pillow packs: 3 Sliquid Naturals H2O, 3 Sliquid Naturals Sassy, 3 Sliquid Naturals Silk, & 3 Sliquid Naturals Sea.

 

Likes & Dislikes

As with any product, there always seems to be some pros and cons. We’ve listed some of ours below.

Things We Like:

  • Great customer service!
  • Powerful vibrations
  • Rotations add lots of pleasure
  • Large selection of attachments
  • High quality & durably built
  • It's frickin' awesome!

Things We Dislike:

  • Very noisy
  • Hefty price tag (but totally worth it!)

 

Summary

We had so much fun with the Sybian! Although this was a demo unit, there’s no doubt that we’ll be purchasing one for ourselves at some point. Sybian is safe to use, incredibly powerful, and has tons of attachments and accessories to choose from. Even though the Sybian is designed for women, it can be a lot of fun for partner play as you can probably tell from our own experiences.
