This Rod Is Magic!!!!

This toy is absolutely worth your consideration if you like powerful vibrations from a not so expensive toy. I loved this thing, and recommend it to anyone from anal beginners to ass spelunking pros. It's very flexible and lengthy, so if you like DEEP stimulation you should definitely consider purchasing. For the price, this unit will absolutely surprise you!

Use

This toy is intended for anal use, and it certainly does the job. It could also be used for clitoral and g-spot stimulation, though I can't rate it for these purposes due to my male anatomy!

Once worked into my ass, this thing stimulated everything. I could feel it all through my ass, my balls... everywhere you want to feel the vibes from an anal toy. While the tip of the toy was inserted I could pull it towards my balls and even get excellent vibrations on the area between balls and butthole, and even a little stimulation of the boys.

You CANNOT use this toy in the water. It isn't waterproofed at all.

Beginners, this toy would certainly work for you (small girth, very slick when lubed) and anal sexperts, you can absolutely get pleasure from this toy due to the INTENSE stimulation it provides.

This power rod would be a great warm up for your larger toys, or you can just use this as the main event!

Material / Texture

This thing has no smell at all when opened. No real texture to speak of, other than the "bulges" that I will discuss more in depth under the design heading.

The control box is made of plastic coated with a silvery paint job.
Control box/Battery compartment materials

As for the "rod" itself, it is made of TPR Silicone, a silicone based compound. Note that I said silicone based, not silicone. On the packaging it notes to use lubes compatible with rubber (water based only). If you are sharing this with a partner or switching between anal and vaginal use, use a condom and ALWAYS change condoms before swapping!

This product's surface when not lubed, has substantial drag. I do not think anyone should just attempt to cram this home and get off! It isn't "sticky" but when pushing or pulling it over skin you can definitely feel it "gripping".

The rod can be cleaned with warm water and anti-bacterial soap or toy cleaner (I recommend Before & After Toy Cleaner)

I would only wipe the control box down as it isn't sealed against moisture at all!

The rod DEFINITELY attracts dust and lint though!
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

I was a little surprised at the design of this toy, but after use, I love it!
Shape/Design

As you can see in the picture, it looks like a set of anal beads affixed to a control box. The bulges down the length of the rod are wonderful (they feel great, and are functionally the same as beads). You can also see the size in comparison to my handy dandy deodorant.

The insertable portion of the toy measured in at just a teeny bit under 8 inches, and the diameter for the main bulge at the end was exactly 1 and 1/4 inches thick just like the manufacturer states. I think anyone can use this when lubed up. I didn't measure the bulges after the first one, because they are a bit smaller than the tip.

As far as storage, I kept the box for this, because I noticed how much lint it picks up. I think it would be fairly easy to hide (should fit fine in that shoebox under the bed, or in the bottom of the underwear drawer!), but I would certainly not consider this discreet. I personally wouldn't consider traveling with this, because to me one look at it says "Hey, this goes in your ass!".

Functions / Performance / Controls

Control Box
The flexi-power rod only has two buttons, but that is all it needs to be amazing. The control box houses the batteries, and it takes 3 AA batteries into a compartment on the back. The button on the right cycles through the 7 (YES, 7!) wonderful functions this toy has to offer. They are (in order):

1. Low Vibration
2. Medium Vibration
3. High Vibration
4. Pulse Pulse Vibe (Just very mediocre to me, the worst function of the 7)
5. Fast Pulse
6. Pulsation
7. Supposed to be Escalating, but it just felt VERY RUMBLY to me (I LOVE THIS SETTING)

Pressing the left button at any time shuts the unit down instantly, you don't have to cycle back to off like with some super cheap toys.

The controls are super easy to use, but at the same time, due to placement they can be a really big hassle. I was almost there at one point and barely touched the left button, and it of course shut off. This could be remedied with better switches on the circuit board.

The first time I try ANY vibrating toy I listen to the noise level in comparison to a few things.

It failed the oscillating fan test. I could very easily hear it over my fan.
It passed the air conditioner test (window unit).
It passed the TV on medium low volume test.
It passed the closed door test.

Do not take my tests as the gospel though. I recommend always checking noise levels of toys before you just go crazy with someone in the next room. This toy is very noisy while outside the body, but once inserted the sound is negligible.

This toy is stated to be very flexible, and it is. You can bend the probe part as far as you want and it doesn't bother the materials at all. It doesn't stay bent (you can't bend it to a position that would be nice and use it bent) but I think that is only a very minor thing. The flexibility definitely assists with DEEP anal stimulation, as the toy can bend some as needed to touch your most private places.

This toy IS NOT WATERPROOF. The battery box isn't sealed to moisture in any way shape fashion or form, so DO NOT USE THIS IN THE WATER, you will regret it.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

This toy is only compatible with water based lubes. Fairly straightforward to care for and keep up; you can clean it with anti bacterial soap and water, or your favorite toy cleaner. I recommend Before & After Toy Cleaner.

Being that it is a silicone based toy, I would definitely keep it out of contact of any other silicone or silicone based toys you may have. I kept the original packaging to store it in for now, as it does pick up dust. You could store this toy in a large ziploc, or if you aren't worried about appearances you could wrap it with a plastic grocery bag to keep it from coming into contact with your other silicone/silicone composite toys (Don't take chances and let it touch your other toys, you will regret it!)

Packaging

The Rod, The Package

You can't see it very well in this picture (my camera had hell focusing because of the silver finish on the control box) but it comes in the basic California Exotics snap closed plastic shell. The paper insert doesn't mention the intended use at all, but I don't think anyone could mistake this for anything besides a sex toy. The only instructions included with the toy was a little piece of paper smaller than most receipts with instructions on how to insert the batteries (It isn't rocket science, and the picture didn't even match the unit). You could certainly use the packaging as storage for the toy, but it won't be of much use for anything besides storing the toy.

The plastic packaging is PETE plastic, recyclable at any recycling facility. The paper inserts are of course recyclable also.

Personal comments

Slight seam
As you can see in the picture, there is a very slight seam along the length of the toy, but it isn't hard and when inserting I couldn't feel it at all, though all of you seam sensitive folks may want to take it slow!

Experience

This is the longest toy I've ever used, so it stimulated me in ways I've never felt before. I absolutely loved it and have no complaints about how well it works. I had several wonderful orgasms while using it (3 hands-free, if that is any help to anyone) and would DEFINITELY recommend this toy! One small recommendation to those with slightly hairier posteriors, you definitely want to lube the whole rod, or your ass hair may vary well "grab" the surface of the toy!
Follow-up commentary
A wonderful toy through and through. Such powerful vibrations for an inexpensive toy, and the depth... Well, the depth is amazing. Feeling those rumbly vibrations all through my ass and still getting some pretty good sensations to the prostate is amazing!

    Once again, your review has me giggling like an idiot (ass spelunking, lol), and learning something new. I wish it was water-proof, but I think your "hands-free" comment has me sold. Thanks for the great review, and the plethora of pics.

    No problem. Taking people's shields down through humor is a good thing as they are more likely to try new things! This really is an amazing toy when I can keep from stealing the batteries for something else lol
