This thing has so many features, it’s like an all-in-one wonder toy. So. Many. Features. Read on for my Zalo Queen Set review!
The Zalo Queen Set may, at first, look like your ordinary G-spot vibrator. The body is sleek and curves gently up to a hooked point (like many G-spot vibes). There’s some fancy gold adornment around the base, complete with a stunning little Swarovski crystal. There are some majestic lines and swooping curves, and it comes in this mouth-watering wine red colour (as well as a purple and dark green).
And the Zalo Queen can, indeed, vibrate. But it can also pulse, turn into a suction toy, and heat up. (why create a boring vibrator when it can have ALL the magical features?)
Pulse vs. Vibrations
At the tip of the Zalo Queen‘s head, circular impressions mark where the pulses happen. This is not vibration, not exactly. With the pulses, it’s like someone’s fingertip is pressing from within the toy – the thin flexible silicone creates a little mound with every pulse. But it happens quickly, very quickly, turning into a rapid-fire tapping.
The vibrations, on the other hand, are your typical run-of-the-mill vibes. There are 2 levels of intensity (plus a few patterns). They’re not particularly strong or rumbly, and in my opinion nothing mind-blowing.
The purchase of the Zalo Queen Set comes with a suction attachment. This is a little sleeve that slips over the head of the Zalo Queen. When you use the pulse feature, the attachment creates a suction chamber, much like a Womanizer or a Satisfyer Pro.
The Zalo Queen has a heating function. With one button, it’ll heat itself up to 107° Fahrenheit (42° Celsius), which is a deliciously warm temperature.
The Zalo Queen is noisy. The vibrations are high-pitched and moderately noisy, but then when you add the pulses it gets considerably loud. If you have roommates, I’d be careful – depending on how thin your walls are, they may be able to pick up some sound.
How to Use the Zalo Queen
- There are three buttons on the Zalo Queen. Two surround the S-shaped gold adornment near the base, and the third is on the actual base of the toy.
- To unlock the travel lock, press A and B at the same time for 3 seconds (and do the same to lock it again later).
- Press A to turn the Zalo Queen on. It won’t do anything until you press either A or B.
- Pressing A will activate pulse wave mode. The tip of the head will start pulsating, and if you keep pressing A, you’ll go through increasingly strong states and then some patterns.
- Pressing B will activate vibration mode. If you keep pressing B, you’ll go through the 2 steady states and then some patterns.
- Both pulse wave mode and vibration mode can go at the same time, or you can just use one of them.
- You can apply this against the clitoris (or penis), or use against the G-spot. Because there’s no flared base, I don’t recommend this for anal use.
- To turn off, press A for 3 seconds.
- Button C controls the heating function.
- When you activate the Zalo Queen by pressing button A, tap button C.
- Button C will start to pulse with the LED light.
- The body will start to heat up. Most of the heat is in the top half of the body.
- Tapping C again will turn off the heating function.
Suction use (via attachment):
- If you want to use the Zalo suction attachment, coat the body lightly with some lubricant and insert it into the sleeve.
- This will turn the head of the toy into a suction pressure-wave toy.
- Use the A button to get the pulse motor going.
- Place the opening of the head over the clitoris. Try get as snug a fit as possible (the more air-tight, the stronger the suction).
Note: You can also use your smartphone to control it using the Zalo Remote App. This lets you customize your experience (ie, vibrate along with music, use a custom vibration pattern).
This time, we have an ancient Egyptian theme. The packaging is black and gold, sleek and well made.
Inside the box, you receive the Zalo Queen body, the suction attachment, a USB charging cord, a pretty silver and gold satin drawstring pouch, the instruction booklet, a sample packet of water-based lubricant, and a 1-year warranty card.
Material and Care
If you’d like to add some lubricant, I recommend my favourite silicone-safe water-based lubricant, Sliquid H2O.
The Zalo Queen is splashproof. It can be rinsed under light running water, with warm, soapy water…. but don’t fully immerse it in water. Also avoid rinsing the charging port (the two little metal pins at the back base of the toy).
If the Zalo Queen isn’t turning on, it probably needs recharging. Use the USB charging cable (included) and plug it into a USB wall adapter or your computer. Connect the other end to the two metal pins on the back of the Zalo Queen (it’ll connect with magnets). 1 hour of charging gets you up to 2 hours of playtime.
I’m a little disappointed that this isn’t fully waterproof. A couple of years ago, I reviewed a few Zalo vibrators and they were completely waterproof, so I’m surprised this one isn’t — especially seeing as air pressure wave toys like the Womanizer or the Satisfyer Pro generally feel better underwater. But alas, don’t take the Zalo Queen into the bath with you.
My Experience with the Zalo Queen Set
Okay, let’s get the bad out of the way first.
Those vibrations don’t work for me. I personally think they’re fairly weak and buzzy, and they’re dispersed throughout the top half of the toy, rather just in the head where my clitoris needs them to be. So, if this toy’s main feature was to vibrate, I’d be sorely disappointed.
I’m also not impressed with the amount of noise this creates, or that it’s not waterproof (c’mon, Zalo).
The shape though — that shape is spot on. I can use this as a G-spot dildo, without any of the features, and it feels fantastic. The shape of the head is very Lelo Ella-esque, kind of hooked, and it finds my G-spot easily. I didn’t find that the pulse mode or vibration mode added much to the G-spot experience, but I really do think it rocks the G-spot well (particularly with the heating function on).
I also like the suction feature I can use when I add the attachment. It’s not as strong as a toy dedicated to this (like the Womanizer or the Satisfyer Pro), but it still feels great. It’s enough for me to orgasm, and if you find dedicated-pressure wave toys like the Womanizer too powerful for you, you might enjoy this gentler stimulation here.
My favourite use of this toy, though, is using the pulsing feature against the clitoris. The rapid tapping is novel and it creates powerful, fairly pinpoint stimulation. The result? Long, slow orgasms.
Overall thoughts – Zalo Queen Set review
The Zalo Queen Set is kind of an all-in-one toy. It’s trying to be a lot of things – a heating vibrator, a pressure-wave suction toy, and a G-spot stimulator.
While I don’t think it excels in being a vibrator or being quiet, I really adore the heating function, that hooked shape for G-spot stimulation, and that pulse function (for clitoral stimulation). Heads up though that the suction feature, while effective for me, isn’t as strong as dedicated suction toys like the Womanizer.
That it’s also visually stunning doesn’t escape me – it’s certainly pretty enough to be gift-worthy.
