Orgasmatron Scalp Massager
Advantages: Funny to try it on unsuspecting visitors
Disadvantages: No good if you are ticklish and gets boring quite quickly
Although this looks like one of those things that invaded the Earth in The War of the Worlds this is actually a (tongue-in-cheek) head massager. It is made of metal and consists of a handle from which some long spider-like prongs emerge. The prongs are tipped with little beads, similar to those found on the end of the teeth on a hairbrush. The idea is that you put the prongs against your head so that they surround the crown of the head and then gently and slowly push down. At first the beads at the end will tickle your scalp and then the prongs will flex open and touch your scalp as well and the reverse effect is experienced when pulling the device up away from your head.
Personally, I find the whole experience very tickly and it makes me feel like my head is itchy all over. I can only put up with it for about 5 seconds as I don't really find it very pleasant. My boyfriend doesn't mind it and thinks it is relaxing but even so it becomes a bit boring after a few minutes and after a while it will get shoved in a cupboard and will rarely see the light of day.
This item is in the novelty toy section just as it should be as it is really a gimmicky gift item and not anything to be taken seriously. I think most people get given these as joke items rather than going out and purchasing one for themselves. It is entertaining at Christmas to pass it around the room and see different peoples' reactions to it. This is definitely the best use for it! However, once everyone has tried it and then lost interest it will most likely be destined for a car boot sale the following summer. Different brands of these are available but they seem to only cost around £3 or £4 online so it is cheap, if slightly limited, entertainment. So if you have a few pounds to spare and are curious to try it or have plans to tickle torture an annoying relative at Christmas, then by all means give it a go!
I will rate it three stars as it is cheap and has novelty value when it is new and there is a big group of people around to try it on but it is short-lived entertainment and I don't like it coming anywhere near me because it tickles too much.
Summary: Gimmicky gift with limited entertainment best suited for a big group of people
