I was in a retail store a couple days ago (08/12) and I picked up a floor model vanity vr6. I turned it on and started telling the salesgirl the problem I had with it being to stiff but when I went to show her I realized that this one was different! I don't know if they just came out or what but it was flexible. The shaft had a point about 3 inches from the tip that bent easily- not super far but at least an inch or two. The old one did not move at all- it was as stiff as a Je joue toy. The clitoral arm was slightly flexible too. Has anyone heard of a second generation vanities besides the decimal point versions?
