I dont miss any texture here, and because it is so smooth I have never had to use any lube with this one. If you are comparing salsa and Mimi. Salsa is stronger and has very pinpoint stimulation. Mimi is quieter, and spreads the stimulation out broader. It is still what I would consider pin point, just not as small as salsa. I like the way Mimi feels better. It all depends on what you like. We are all so different!
