A Very Wascally WabbitThe Serenity, in a word, is awesome. It targets the G-spot and the clitoris with ample vibrations, producing intense blended orgasms. It is firm, but flexible, and soft and comfortable. Being waterproof, it can be used in the shower or tub. We find it excellent for couples play, and she loves it solo as well. The Serenity would be an excellent addition to your toybox!
The bottom of the box has a more in depth list of the Serenity features. There you will find that the Serenity is made from phthalate-free TPR, a body safe, jelly-like material that flexes and conforms; the easy push button controls the 3 speeds which provide maximum stimulation with minimum noise and that the serenity is bath and shower friendly. Also on the bottom of the box is a bit of legalese regarding no implied warranty, do not use on swollen areas or broken skin...blah, blah, blah.
On to the Serenity itself. As stated, this vibrator is made of TPR, with the end cap being plastic. There was no perceptible odor to the vibe and the material did not feel tacky or sticky. It comes in either purple or pink. The measurements of the toy are as follows:
Length: 8 inches
Insertable length: 4.5 inches
Diameter: 1.6 inches
Circumference: 5 inches around motor, 4.75 rest of shaft
Clitoral stimulator: 2 inches long, 3.5 inch circumference
The end of the Serenity is angled upward to provide better G-spot stimulation, and with the motor in the shaft right behind this bend, the vibrations really “hit the spot.” The shaft is at its thickest around the motor, right at 5 inches in circumference, providing a nice “bump.” The tip is a bit smaller at 4 inches and the remainder of the shaft measures 4.75 inches around. The shaft also features some swirled ridges for a little extra stimulation. The clitoral arm is about 2 inches long and 3.5 inches in circumference and has a second motor near its end. Both the shaft and arm are flexible and pliable, making for a very comfortable fit.
The Serenity requires 2x AA batteries, which are not included. The battery compartment is located on the bottom of the toy, and has a screw on cap. The batteries simply drop in. Care should be taken to properly thread the cap to ensure a good seal and prevent water from getting into the battery compartment. We have not yet used the toy in the shower or bath, but I do not foresee any problems doing so, as it was fully submerged during clean without water getting into the compartment.
As for cleaning, soap and warm water works well, as would any number of toy clean produces available. As the TPR does attract lint, avoid wiping with anything that sheds fibers. Also, TPR cannot be disinfected so if you plan on sharing the toy, cover it with a condom every time.
An instruction manual is not provided, but operation is very straight forward with a single push button at the very end of the vibe. Pushing the button cycles through low, medium, high and off. The button’s location does make it easy to hit by accident, but by being aware of this and adjusting your grip, you can avoid “orgasmus interuptus.”
The Serenity is quite powerful and surprisingly quiet. I would rate it 2 bees at its loudest, and that is judged with it on in quiet room. It could not be heard at all while actually in use for her moaning with pleasure :-) For strength, we give it 2 vrooms on low, 3 vrooms on medium and 4 vrooms on high. This applies to both the main shaft and arm motors.
The Serenity, like all TPR toys, should be stored so as to avoid contact with other toys, lint and dust. Fortunately, it comes in a nice, sturdy box suitable for storage. Also, stick to water or silicone based lubes and avoid those which are oil based when using the Serenity.
The box isn't exactly discreet, so you will have to find a hiding place for it, if keeping your toys on the "down low" is necessary for you. Travelling with the Serenity isn't a problem, as it easily fits in the bottom of a suitcase or overnight bag. As always, remove the batteries to avoid it accidentally turning on at an embarrassing time.
As with all toys of this type, anatomy is going to figure heavily into how it works for you. Results will vary, but with the flexibility of the Serenity, it will work for most people.
