The Cobra Libre is made out of many things, but the exterior of this toy is made out of plastic and silicone. Everywhere that your penis touches is silicone, and everything else is smooth hard plastic. This toy has no noticeable odor. It is waterproof as far as cleaning goes, but I would not submerge this in water. You are probably gonna want to stick with a water-based lube when using this toy.
Of course another huge difference here... is the entire design of the toy. It is basically a reverse vibrator that you put your penis inside of. The opening narrows, and the top is a bit stretchy, this allows the head of your penis to 'pop' into the inside chamber. This gently, for lack of a better word here, 'locks' onto the head of your penis. This is not uncomfortable or painful, and you can very easily remove yourself.
Visually this toy looks like the cars from the movie Tron. It is not obvious that is a toy, but anyone who sees will definitely ask you about it, so it is not discreet. It probably takes up about as much space as a 12oz can of soda would. I would say the average and above average guy will have no problems using this toy, but if you are hung like a porn star... it might be too small for you. As far as travel goes, the buttons are not that sensitive so it is somewhat travel friendly.
This crazy toy has three buttons: on/off, up, & down. The on/off button also changes vibration patterns, and the up and down buttons control speed and intensity. There is a steady pattern where the whole toy vibrates, there is a wobble pattern where the two motors go out of sync, and there are patterns that sort of mix everything including the speeds together in a rise and fall sort of rhythm. I personally like the wobble pattern the best.
The controls are easy to use. You barely need to touch the buttons, but you have to hold it for a few seconds for them to engage and change. This toy is a little noisy, but I prefer the vibration noises to the usual slurping noises that most other masturbators make during use. According to the instructions, this toy is "waterproof for cleaning purposes; underwater usage is not possible".
This toy is very easy to clean and care for. You can clean with soap and warm water. Do not submerge the toy in water while cleaning. Storage is very easy, you can even use the plastic clam-shell if you like.
The instructions recommend that you use the Fun Factory ToyFluid Lube with this toy, but you can also use any other water based lube as well.
It is recommended that you do not store this toy for a long period of time, while holding a charge.
The packaging for this toy kind of reminds of the packaging a toy car would come in. It is not out of the realm of adult product packaging, but it does have a bit of a 'toy' feel to it. There is a cardboard box with a display opening on the side where you can see the plastic clam-shell the toy was suspended in. I am not sure if this would make a good gift or not, but it would work semi long term storage.
This comes with Fun Factory Toy Fluid Lube, a charger (which is packaged separately, so you can get the correct charger for whatever electrical setup your country uses), and a set of instructions. The instructions appear to be a small booklet, but unfold into a giant poster sized piece of paper. There are instructions, written very, very small in many different languages. The instructions are pretty good and include cleaning, charging, and safety.
This toy is part of the Click and Charge toy line. There is a built in rechargeable battery inside this toy, and a charger comes along with the toy. Charging is very simple; the charger connects to the toy magnetically. You just place the magnetic charger over the magnetic charging point, and let it sit. You have to let it fully charge before using the first time, and the initial charge can take a long time. But once fully charged, you can get a few sessions per charge.
I really enjoyed getting to test out this great toy! It was very, very different than any of the many toys I have experienced before. The lack of thrusting during use of this toy seemed to prolong the usage for me, but I would imagine that it might for most. You can leave it on low for a long time, or you can crank it the whole way up on wobble for a few minutes.
This toy is great the way it is, no complaints. Well... I guess if it could magically hover so you could put both hands behind your head while using it, that would be awesome.
