SoftTouch sleeve

Traditional vibrator by

Add resource

A soft and affordable vibrator.

This is an excellent product for anyone who wants a standard style with a little something extra or anyone who is looking for a low-cost but good toy. The sleeve is what makes the toy and sets it apart from other similar vibrators.

Use

This is a classic vibrator that is jazzed up with a soft sleeve to add texture and a more realistic feel. It is intended for vaginal use, as there is no flared base to make it completely safe for anal. That said, this product has a lot to offer for its price and I'm very pleased with it. The size, texture and shape are surprisingly great for the criteria I set for comfortable penetration. I tend to like to use toys for clitoral stimulation; however, this didn't work as well for that. This is great for anyone who wants an affordable toy that is simple in the design, but offers a softer texture than a classic vibrator would have. It's not small and super quiet, so it's best to be used when you don't have a need for discretion.

Material / Texture

The base of the product is a standard plastic vibrator that can be used on its own if you wish. It's smooth and offers direct stimulation wherever you may need it. The sleeve is an amazing addition that makes this product worth every penny and made me fall in love with it. It's a skin-like material that is porous (see care and maintenance) and gives the product a soft outer texture and a little bit of a "squish". I adore products that have that certain "squish" feel to them, as I can't get adequate pleasure from something that doesn't move with my body, but against it. That said, this doesn't mean that you have a ton of squish, but rather a light squish through the shaft and a soft and flexible head. This head can be a bit difficult to insert without using two hands to help guide it. This is because the sleeve doesn't slide to the tip of the vibrator underneath, but rather has a soft head that sits on top of it.

The outer texture is nice, although not like real skin. It is better than a jelly or plastic and warms to your body temperature a bit better. This makes the toy a lot more comfortable and pleasurable during use. There are soft nubs toward the top and ridge area, but I am unable to feel them once the toy is inserted. This doesn't take away from the fact that the texture of this toy is very nice. There are also veins that add to stimulation and feel amazing inserted or rubbing against the outside. It does have a strange odor that is a bit unpleasant, but fades after a couple of cleanings. This wasn't enough to put me off, but it is there if you make it a point to sniff. Some people may be more sensitive to the scent than others.

Design / Shape / Size

The design is simple enough. No odd bends or creases. This may be boring to some people, but I think it's a great place to start and a classic shape is an essential for all toy boxes! The sleeve gives a more realistic shape and feel. This keeps the product from being too dull and still maintains a comfortable style. I am able to stimulate my g-spot with it easily, but some women might think the product doesn't offer a very good angle. The size is perfect with the "squish" factor. If it were a firm jelly material, it would be too wide. But it moves comfortably with my body and gives a nice "full" feel without feeling like I'm being ripped open. It's a perfect size for the material it is made out of. As far as the length is concerned, I think most women would find it suitable. There's enough length to go deep, but the design allows shallow penetration to be pleasurable without missing any product features in the texture or design. Another plus to choosing something simple. It isn't small enough to travel with or hide too well. Do keep this in mind if you are looking for something discreet.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The performance is good, but not mind-blowing. As this is a standard vibrator, you pretty much know what to expect. There is a turn-dial at the bottom that offers a nice range of vibration intensities and allows for easy operation. The vibrations aren't the strongest with the sleeve absorbing a lot of the movement, but they are very nice and did bring me to orgasm. The vibrations are mostly concentrated in the tip of the vibrator base. The sleeve has a head that sits above that, making it difficult to administer vibrations in a precise spot.

Care and Maintenance

As this is a porous material, it is recommended that you use it with a condom for easy clean-up and keeping anything bacterial build-up from causing infections. You can take the sleeve off for cleaning as well, which makes it a BIT easier. It's best to use warm water and soap or toy cleaner. The material can also split if you play too rough with it, so take care when removing the sleeve and cleaning. I use the plastic clam shell box it came in to store it, but a plastic or cloth bag should be fine as long as there are no dyes that can rub off. You will also want to avoid silicone lube with this one.
Follow-up commentary
I still like this product a lot. Even love it. The material makes me a big fan and the functions are just right for my needs. It doesn't drain batteries like crazy which is a definite plus as well as it being fairly quiet. Not too much has changed about this product and I'm still very into it. Not my favorite, but high on my list for sure.
