If you read the manual, they actually mention that (and so do most of the reviews). The booklet says not to use it under blankets. I usually stop using mine after 15 to 20 minutes or so because I don't want to damage the motor.

I just learned (and wanted to share in case anybody in the future reads this thread) from ToyGeek's review that SaSi will actually shut itself off if it gets too hot.

I don't know if it shuts itself off at a certain temperature as an 'autoprotect' feature, or if it just passes the temp at which it doesn't work anymore, but I suspect the former. So maybe I don't have to worry so much about protecting the motor, because it will do it on its own.

So I had never actually timed this before, and I wanted to be able to give you something concrete.

This morning was pretty chilly (and maybe 66degF in the house?), so I flouted the book's instructions and used SaSi under a blanket, and held it to myself with my hand. It took 31 minutes before I decided SaSi was "too hot to use."

My general metric for handheld motors being too hot is the 'leftovers method'---if this was my lunch, would I put it back in the microwave? So it took 31 minutes, under blankets and my hand, for SaSi to be hot enough "to eat." I didn't run it til it shut down, but I'm guessing it would have run for quite a while longer.

The sex store I work at actually stopped carrying the Sasi because it burned two of our customers. It is not uncommon and the 'turn off' method doesn't always work. Not to mention, the skin that it is being used on is very sensitive, so an amount of heat that it would take to burn is less than the amount of heat it would take to burn (let's say) your elbow.

That's quite interesting! Well, I had written to EF because basically it was too hot for me to use it comfortable after 5 minutes. Give it another ten and we could have a burn.

Yeah, over the last couple days I've worked with a couple other motors with 'self-protection' overheating circuit trips (I don't know the proper word ), and they all have 'reset' buttons which need to be pushed before the motor can run again after the operator judges it has cooled down.

The fact that SaSi doesn't have you do a reset after it has shut down due to heat makes me suspect that, if it shuts down, it's because it *actually got too hot*, not just because it tripped a 'self-protect-don't-ge t-too-hot' circuit.

Tits McScandal's anecdote about the 'turn off' method not always working goes along with this.



So, I take back what I postulated in an earlier post---don't let your SaSi get so hot that it stops.

I've heard that over heating is a common problem, mine has yet to over heat but its still relatively new, I wounder over time and with more use if it will start, or if I just lucked out.

I love Je Joue products but I'm probably going to pass this one up. I'm glad they've improved on their toys though.

The shutting off in case it over heats is a plus.
