SinFive Akmeo-Silicone VS SinFive Akmeo-WTP

*Ashley* *Ashley*
What's the difference?!? I'm up for a review and the SinFive Akmeo-WTP came up. I think I want to get that as my first G-Spot vibrator. Might as well snag it up while it's 50% off.

My questions:

What is really the difference between the two; Is it just the material and does it really make that much of a difference?
If silicone is the safest material then why is the WTP more expensive (silicone: 69.95 - WTP: $99.99)?

I can't answer all your questions, but I just received the Silicone one today and it's beautiful, powerful, does all sorts of stuff and its flexible too. I am very impressed with this vibrator.

I have no idea what the difference is. They both have antibacterial properties and they seem really similar in description. The WTP says it's a thermoplastic. I dunno, I think if they're pretty much the same, I'd just get the cheaper one. I think thirty bucks for an only slightly different material is a lot to pay

The difference in price has me baffled, too! I have a silicone SinFive vibe and it's luxuriously soft and smooth. I also have the SinFive Emigi which is made of WTP and it's velvety, flexible plastic. I would think the silicone would be more expensive, but I think it's the kind of plastic that WTP is that makes it more expensive. I'd go for the Silicone one, most definitely.

I think I'd pick silicone just because I know the material, I know it's body safe, and it doesn't have all these bells and whistles. I just like to stick with what I know and what's easiest.

I know this one!

WTP is SinFive's own proprietary thermoplastic rubber. It's got antibacterial properties (like the silicone) and it's got a slightly different texture than the silicone. (I haven't tried the silicone out, but I'm guessing based on what most silicone is like.)

WTP is really draggy and soft, and I really liked it. I've been thinking of grabbing one of the on-sale WTP vibes, just because of it. The WTP isn't sterilizable, but it's still easy to wash and take care of, especially with the antibacterial layer.

It really depends on what you like, regarding texture.

Regarding the price, even though silicone is "the safest" that doesn't make it always the most expensive. There are a lot of wooden and ceramic toys on EF that are quite expensive even though they get a safety rating of 9 instead of 10 like silicone. I think what's happening with the price is that the WTP ones might be phased out, so they're on sale, and the new silicone ones might be here to stay. (or at least, the WTP ones were on sale earlier...)
