I think I'm gonna use a bullet to put it (and me) out of its misery.

Of course, tonight I wasn't exactly in the mood as I was tired...but then we tried the double bullet and wow....I at least got closer to being in the mood.

Was there a specific problem? Also, don't be so angry that you didn't like something that was highly recommended. I mean, it's not like people recommended it just so they could relish in your misery!

I'm not mad at them as much as I'm banging my head against the wall in frustration about not liking it. This is the second time I've bought a "highly recommended" toy that folks love (the first was Ella) and been disappointed.

I'm going to use it again this week a few more times and then write a review on it. I think the problem is that bullets are a perfect size and shape for my clitoris and hood and the Mimi is not a great shape for either myself or my husband to use.

I will probably do the review once I've decided how I feel about it - and then turn around and sterilize it and sell it for what I paid ($55 - I got it at 30% off). It will be in the box with the charger, booklet, etc. - just as if it was brand new - only used a handful of times.

I've had things like this happen before; sometimes expensive things are awesome (my new Bandito, for one) and sometimes the cheaper version is just as good, if not better! Don't get mad at yourself for not liking something!

I'll be sure to read it. Be sure to include in your review a bit about your anatomy and how the toy wasn't a good fit, exactly (if you don't think it's too TMI). I think it's helpful to know a little bit about the people who think a toy is great (or not so great), so we can judge accordingly. I personally love the Mimi, but maybe for different reasons, as I don't like direct clitoral stimulation, but I do like a lot of pressure and vibration above and below the clit, through the clitoral hood.

I think this is a good point. I like direct stimulation to the clitoris and the bullet hits it nicely whereby the Mimi felt like it was too far away, couldn't get close and just wasn't as stimulating because it wasn't directly on the clitoris.

Oh no, I'm sorry it didn't work out for you.

I had the MiMi for about two weeks now and I don't like it so much either, at least not as much as people rave about it. I thought it was just me.

This is why I use it with the pointed tip with the buttons facing away from me. There's no wrong way to use it.

We both tried using it several different ways. I'll try it that way again - and as I said - I wasn't overly "in the mood" but it was a new toy and we thought, "Well, let's try it now that its charged and see if it helps get me in the mood".

Once again - my thoughts on it could change later this weekend when I'm more ready to play.

But my initial reaction was "oh no....I did it again...bought a toy that I really wasn't all that sure about cause it has such great reviews".

My gut instinct had been saying "no" but I didn't listen to it -same way with the Ella (that my daughter loves but I don't care for that much - it is ok - but not great).

I think that noticing that maybe it isn't the right shape/size for the way I like stimulation is a great help to understanding myself.

I will say that our new double bullets (passion bullets or something) rock and I Love them. We got three of them cause they were the facebook special for $7.50 last week for a couple of days.

Oh no! I'm sorry you don't like your Mimi!!

I always pull my hood back to get vibrations directly on my clit, so maybe that will help. I actually do that with all my toys because it's the only way I can make the vibrations strong enough.

I'm so sorry you didnt like it. I feel your pain though. You were so sweet and encouraging when I had my buyer's remorse after the cone. I think its good to share our sucesses and dissapointments though. Since we are all so different we are bound to like different things. I love my mimi. It does feel better with a little lube if you are not already aroused when you begin. If you know you like deep rumbly vibrations like Mimi, but are looking for for a different shape and rechargable I would suggest the wevibe tango. I spent some time the other night using them both at the same time after being prompted by a poll over which one is better and I think tango is definitely stronger. I do find the charge doesn't last as long as i would often like though. I think we are about the same age and things don't always happen as fast as they used to. Get a hitachi if you don't have one. That always works as long as discretion isn't a factor.

If it's any consolation to you, I don't like the Pure Wand or the Eroscillator. Probably everyone, if they buy enough toys, will have purchases of popular items that didn't work for them.

Honestly, I think I'm probably gonna stick with my bullets.

When I'm ready to play - they can bring me to orgasm within FIVE minutes - usually less. Sometimes my husband can count "1, 2, 3" and I'm already on my way and close to an orgasm.

When I'm not in the mood - 90% of the time after just relaxing and laying in bed with the bullet for about 15-20 minutes - I am in the mood at least somewhat if not mostly.

So I think the bullet (for now) will probably be my best friend....now to invest in rechargeable batteries!

As far as the wands - I don't know why - but they simply don't appeal to me at all. I like the fact that I don't have to hold the bullet - I can simply put it in/under my hood and be off. No hands needed after that - except to grab the bed sheet...

Shoot! What a let-down! But you did get a clever title out of it, at least

I remember once a newish reviewer had done a buyout on Ella, and then Ella really just didn't work for her body at all, and she made a few forum posts asking "how can I make this work, because I have to write a review and I can't just write a review that says it doesn't work, because everyone else loves it?!" And we all had to reassure her that the negative reviews are sometimes the most insightful. And it's really true---I've never gotten a Mimi, despite all the great reviews, because I just don't think it would be anything special for my body. There are probably a whole host of other folks out there who are in the same boat as you and me, but the only reviews you read are the raving ones, because mostly people who look at it and say "oh! That's for me!" are the ones who buy and review it. But when someone brand new to sex toys walks in, and says "oh, so everybody in the world loves this?" And then turns out to be like you and me, and then feels like there's something wrong about their body that made them not like it... that's sad! So it's super important to get that "why it wasn't a hit for my body" out there, so the total newbies can know that there's variation in tastes, and it's normal... and also have a little insight about what might be a good choice for them so they can avoid the failures.

And I had to find a new home for my Ina, and after I make a Pure Wand / Smooth S Shape comparison video, I'll be looking for a new home for my Pure Wand too, Tuesday. Not everything is perfect for everyonr.

My Ina was immediately re-homed too. Maybe you're my girly bits responsiveness twin.

I keep the Pure Wand around just so I can try it again periodically after I read a review where it brought the moon and the stars to someone. But my opinion hasn't changed.

I'm a very practical person, why bother wasting money on a CLIT VIBRATOR, when you can get the job done with the head of your vibes? I only buy what works for ME, it doesn't matter how great the reviews make it sound, or that it's the most popular item in a comparison poll. If it's not something I'm really interested in, then there's no deal.

The head of vibrators NEVER works for me.

Sorry to hear that.

I forgot to mention that the heads of the Pure Wand are also great on the clit, only thing is that they don't vibrate, but the weighty pressure work wonders!

I'm gonna try that now, but generally pressure doesn't work for me on my clit. I need super powerful pinpoint stimulation to orgasm that way. Thus why I buy clit vibrators.

To me buying toys is a process of finding the right fit. I have toys I love, toys I like, toys I rarely use, and toys I used only 1 or twice.
I'd suggest give your Mimi and try or 2, then try to sell it on Eden Classified. You can definitely sterilize it and sell it to someone else. I imagine with such a popular toy, if you are willing to sell it for a little cheaper, someone will buy it. Again, it's not worth getting frustrated over. Everyone have different anatomy and need different things.

Vibrator shopping is almost like clothes shopping, except there isn't a fitting room. Eden does have a great return policy, if it's still within 60 days, you can take advantage of that as well.

If you like bullets, I highly suggest the We-Vibe Tango or Salsa because they are . . . rechargeable bullets! (They are the only rechargeable bullets available on the market right now, to my knowledge.) MiMi just doesn't do it for me either, but the Tango definitely does. I like how small and pinpoint it is. Plus, it has deep and rumbly vibrations and is a smooth, glossy plastic so that it has a much better glide than Mimi's silicone.

I will look into some of the things suggested.

I really didn't mean to criticize the folks who kept telling me to get the MiMi - and I'm sorry if it seemed that way.

I am going to try the MiMi another time or two and then either see if my daughter wants it - or put it on Eden Classifieds. $55 plus $5 shipping would be fair wouldn't it? I'll be including a package of wipes with it too to help cover the cost of shipping. (I'd be shipping it priority which I think is $6.95 or so for the flat rate shipping).

My daughter lives at home with us and is 27 years old. She's the one who introduced me to the site (TheBadHobbit). We have completely different styles in our preferences for toys - she loves dildos - I love vibrators. She likes smaller ones - I prefer queen size.

So yeah - I have offered it to her and she is considering it. I suspect she may take it - I don't know though. She was interested in looking at it since she didn't see it when it arrived. (We usually open packages together).

It's not like her daughter didn't come out of her vagina in the first place.

Unless there was a C-section. But still, close enough.

I can appreciate or at least understand the frustration of having spent hard earned money for something that did not work for you. I happen to have an armoire full of unused toys which did not interest or work for my wife. Fortunately, I can afford the mistakes, but that does not help you. Luckily for us my wife early on found a toy which she covets. This is not a sales pitch, since no one can guarantee results. For my wife the use of vibrators generally speaking were unsuccessful. The Hitachi for example just numbed her clit. It's not to say she cannot climax with them at all, it just wasn't with any regularity. She found the oscillations of the Eroscillator to work for her. She has had this now for quite a few years. It is her all time favorite, never fail toy. I believe three models are sold. What we bought was the Eroscillator 2 deluxe with five attachments. The particular attachment she uses has two sides with each having a name. The side she uses is I believe named grapes.

So, this is our experience with a toy and certainly not an endorsement or suggestion of how someone should spend hard earned money. However, I believe these postings can be helpful with generating new idea's and avenues for some. Coming from a person who has an armoire full of unused expensive toys, "Let the buyer beware" or "Caveat emptor".

I will continue reading reviews and postings regarding others experiences with toys. Based upon much of this information, I will continue to buy and experiment. I suppose I'm in search of the Holy Grail. It may not be obtainable, but the journey is worth it to me.
