Bend Me, Shape MeWith strong vibrations, multiple speeds and functions, and a flexible shaft that will hold whatever curve you desire means Bendie is customizable for your pleasure. Unfortunately the super squishy and unsafe material ruins this toy for me, I can't stand needing to pull out a condom every time I choose to use it, and it's way too squishy for my liking.
+ Strong Vibrations
- Weird Balls and Shaft
While making the pure skin removable would have been convenient for cleaning if the toy if it was not waterproof or if the sleeve was silicone so that it could be boiled but this is not the case. Instead the fact that is can pull off the motor is just annoying and creates yet another place for bacteria to harbor.
The pure skin itself is a very soft material, far too soft for it to be truly realistic in my opinion. It also rates a 1 on the Eden safety scale because it is porous and can easily harbor bacteria, which can cause some nasty yeast infections. The best way to protect the toy, and yourself, is to cover it with a condom before each use ESPECIALLY if you use it anally. Even if you take good care of your Pure Bendy it will never last as long as a higher quality, non-porous material such as silicone or glass which will last a lifetime.
Pure Bendie is a moderately sized toy with a length of 7 inches and a girth of 4.75 inches at its thinnest point and 5 inches around the head but it's plushy material makes it's size much less intimidating. It is designed to be realistic, especially in it's flesh tone, but if you are intimidated by this they do offer it in purple making it a little less so. I mentioned that they missed the mark with the realistic feel, making it way too soft; well I feel that the look isn't very realistic either. The head does look very real, with the ridge around the tip and even the v-shaped frenulum on the bottom, but this is where the realism ends. The texture along the shaft is quite strange and the balls look just plain weird, to be perfectly honest I think there's three! While there is a pretty pronounced texture along the shaft it isn't all that noticeable because, once again, the super soft material lessens it.
Because of it's size and realistic design it is neither discrete nor easy to hide so it would be best to keep it in a storage pouch or box hidden in a drawer or other safe spot.
Once you insert the batteries you can push either button on the bottom and the toy will turn on and the base will illuminate. Once it is on one button will cycle through the functions/speeds and the other will turn it off, it's a bit hard to differentiate between the buttons because there isn't a "top" and "bottom" of the toy per-say.
The functions are as follows:
4. A series of four fast pulses
5. Fast pulsing
6. Slow pulsing
7. Faster pulsing (again?)
8. Medium pulsing
9. Slowest pulsing
10. Fast, low pulsing
To be honest they all seem very similar, it's like they just wanted an excuse to list "10 functions" on the box. This is also the second toy that I have seen that has the speeds in a way that I would call backwards. I'm not sure why someone would want to start with high and work their way down. If you find a favorite functions Bendie will remember, he's just a considerate lover like that, when you turn it on it will resume the last pattern you had running when you turned it off.
The other major "function" or feature of this toy is it's ability to bend and retain it's shape. I noticed that if I bent it into a subtle g-spot curve it actually maintained that shape no matter how rigorously I thrusted, I was quite impressed, and no matter how severe of a curve you prefer Bendie should be more than happy to accommodate.
