Foxy by OhMiBod is the latest iteration of the brand’s signature app-controlled wearable panty vibe toys. Designed to slot into the underwear, the OhMiBod Foxy remains in place with a positioning magnet while stimulating the vulva via a variety of music-activated and remote-controlled features.

The Foxy offers a slimmer and more ergonomic design than the brand’s $119 ClubVibe 3.OH, it remains at a similar price, selling for $129, though. Other similar panty vibrators tend to be a little more expensive, such as the $159.99 Clandestine Companion, the $139 We-Vibe Moxie, and the $199 Lovense Ferri. However, these devices don’t offer any sound-responsive features.

For a cheaper option, Lovehoney’s Juno range offers its own panty version for $69.99. However, as we noted in our review, the lack of a positioning magnet means that it struggles to stay in place and can end up a little frustrating.

With that all said, let’s see whether the Foxy is better than any of the options already on the market.

Foxy by OhMiBod

This wearable panty vibrator is great for music lovers and/or couples who hike together. Sitting at the mid-range price point for a panty vibrator, its music and long-distance features are a treat, though the perineum tickler is a bit of a let down, despite being a good idea in theory. Had it been slightly less buzzy, and slightly quieter, it would have scored a little better overall. If those don’t sound like issues for you, then there’s a lot to enjoy here.

Design & Features

In the box comes the toy itself, a privacy pouch for storage, a USB charging cable, two positioning magnets (in case you lose one), and an instruction manual.

Weighing 2.3oz (65g) including the cable, the Foxy is just 3.8″ long, 1.4″ wide (96.4mm long, 35.7mm wide), perfect for slotting inside underwear.

Unlike the ClubVibe 3.OH, the Foxy is shaped to sit more comfortably against the vulva, with a raised and textured bump, named “velvet wave cushioning” for stimulating the clitoris and vaginal entrance, and a “tickler” for additional perineum pleasure. I did initially think this was to be worn the other way around with the tickler used for clitoral stimulation – but we will see which is preferable once in use.

Using waterproof and body-safe materials, it offers a silky silicone texture that can be enjoyed in the bath or shower, though I imagine you’ll need to use the toy manually, rather than wearing underwear in the shower – but each to their own!

While the original ClubVibe 2.OH and 3.OH came with their own black thong with a pouch to slot the device in, the OhMiBod team has evidently followed suit with other panty vibes on the market to ensure it stays in place. Though it was nice receiving a free thong when reviewing the previous iteration. I’m all for a bonus feature, though it’s nice to have the option to wear the device with whatever underwear feels most comfortable or sexy for you!

Speaking of bonus features, the OhMiBod app has updated somewhat since my last review too. App features include video chat, sending text and photos, music mode, pulse mode, and club vibe mode. With music mode, you can connect directly to your Spotify or iTunes to vibe along to your favorite songs. Club vibe mode allows you to sync up your vibrator to sounds in the environment, such as if you were in a club and wanted to vibe along to the music, ” the perfect opportunity to take your night out on the town to new heights” as the company markets.

The Bluetooth feature allows you to control the Foxy locally, whether that’s solo or with a partner who wants to take control of your pleasure, as well as long-distance. As well as in-app messaging and sending photos you can “bring your sexting game to a new level with in-app video conferencing” to enjoy live feedback with your partner.

Not only that, but with the pulse mode you can create custom vibrations, even save and name your favorites, as well as the opportunity to “log your orgasm on the Oh!Dometer and let your partner know too.”

The OhMiBod remote app Supports iOS (12.0+), Apple Watch and Android (5.0+) and is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

In Use

Solo exploration – testing all the modes

Having used OhMiBod’s previous devices, I simply had to update the app on the App Store to make sure I had the latest version, and syncing up was pretty simple.

I was keen to explore the music mode straight away as I had some songs I was excited to vibe to. However, I hit a few bumps in the road. The app kept glitching when I tried to connect to Spotify. After a few frustrating tries, the app finally recommended I update Spotify.

Once Spotify was connected, I found my downloaded playlists, and could also search for songs within the app. Once my song was selected, I clicked the vibrator in place in my underwear, however, I quickly discovered that the vibrations were a little buzzy and intense for my tastes.

As a sensitive queen, I found the sensations a little tickly and uncomfortable from the direct contact, particularly as I hadn’t given myself much of a warm-up. Nevertheless, I eased into the music and found that I could alter the settings to reduce the intensity.

The rhythms of the vibrations were quite well matched to the music, but I longed for more bassier rumblier sensations.

I experimented a little with the “touch mode” and “tap mode”, which let you create synced sensations or create particular patterns and save them to your personal playlist. The patterns in the tap mode felt more comfortable for me, as it meant I didn’t have to concentrate so much on the control.

Playing with the different frequencies and speeds in the touch mode allowed me to notice what sensations I preferred. The lower and slower the pace the less connected the vibrations felt – with the toy sounding a little like the internet “dial-up” tone from the 90s. And the faster and higher the vibes, the more intense and disconnected I felt from my experience. So somewhere in the middle, I found enjoyment playing with the speed and the frequency.

I had originally placed the toy the “correct” way round, as demonstrated in the manual, which felt pretty good, however, the perineum tickler needed some adjustment to reach its destination.

I was intrigued to try it my way round, with the tickler on the front, facing the clitoris. Sadly, this didn’t feel that great either. It seems like the tickler is a nice thought, but a bit of a let down in reality.

For the “club vibe” mode, I didn’t get the chance to take this toy out to a literal club, but I tested the feature by setting up my speakers to play some of my favorite tunes. I turned up the sensitivity and enjoyed myself a bit of a bedroom disco. Safe to say this could be a fun one for a night out if live music is what gets you going.

Partner exploration – local

During the local partnered experience, I realized how well-versed we were in the app-controlled game. We had already set up the Bluetooth prior to this experience and intuitively put aside the magnet or the underwear to test out the toy more manually.

What became clear during this exploration, was just how loud this toy was. Perhaps something I hadn’t noticed in the solo experience due to the music being played. Yet, there was an element of self-consciousness once my partner was involved a just how distracting the vibrations were.

While we were keen to try the toy without the magnet and the pants, my partner struggled to hold the toy in place as its size and shape weren’t quite ergonomically designed for manual use.

My partner did however enjoy creating different patterns and seeing which ones excited me the most in real time.

Partner exploration – public

Once my partner had figured out which settings I enjoyed the most, we thought we’d take this outside. Nervous about the volume, we hiked deep into some woods. Once there, I was pleased to discover that while magnetized in the underwear, it is not as loud as when inside and exposed.

The hike was definitely elevated by this Foxy vibrator, mainly because it’s a fun novelty to be controlled spontaneously and unexpectedly.

Partner exploration – long distance

Once we were familiar with the Foxy on a local level, we decided to test out the long-distance features, such as the video functionality which is relatively unique to these remote-controlled toys.

Setting up was pretty easy. I had my partner download the app, and we connected via usernames with zero hassle, which as Amy Norton rightfully pointed out in her recent review of the We-Vibe Rave 2 that using usernames offers much more privacy than connecting via email addresses.

Considering we’d had issues with the sound feature when reviewing the PinkPunch Sunset Mushroom toy long-distance, we were skeptical about the video feature.

Nevertheless, the video function ran smoothly and was a great addition to the experience, as it once again allowed my partner to understand which modes worked best for my happiness. Despite zero glitches, we had one very vain complaint. The selfie video flipped our faces, which is called the “mirror effect” whereby “subjects perceive an unfamiliar image of self as less or not attractive.” For some people, this can cause an element of discomfort as you are literally looking at your own face while trying to relax and enjoy the vibrations.

Vanity aside, we appreciated being able to enjoy the toy and each other’s company remotely.

The Verdict

If music is your thing or long walks in nature, the Foxy could be a great addition to elevating the experience. While it sits pretty much at the middle price point for panty-vibrators, you’ll want to consider whether this Foxy toy is worth your investment.
