Use

If you are even a little familiar with the happenings here at Eden, you have most likely heard of MiMi. Multiple times. She appears to be the toy everyone owns or wants to own. After reading the reviews and forums, I just had to see what all the hype was about. Ever the scientist, I ventured forth to discover MiMi and add more information for my Eden fellows (a completely selfless endeavor!)

When looking at what she offers, it makes sense. MiMi is discreet, waterproof, high grade silicone, and strong. She can stimulate your erogenous zones and give you great clitoral orgasms. She is designed with external use in mind, but you can tease the entrances of vaginal or anal opening with her. MiMi is not recommended for anal play because she lacks a flared base. She can, however, be used for shallow vaginal penetration at her tip. She does become wide at her middle, though.

MiMi is perfect for foreplay, teasing, masturbation, and couple's play. She is versatile and bound to please. She is small enough that she can fit between couples during sex. MiMi is perfect for beginners and all players of every experience. She is especially great for those who need discretion. Students, those who live with others, and travelers will love the features MiMi has to offer.

Material / Texture

MiMi is made of silicone. She is the nicest silicone I have felt so far (and I consider myself somewhat experienced in this department!) There is little drag to her, and she can easily glide across those hot spots with little to no lubrication. Being silicone, MiMi is hypoallergenic, non-porous, and built to last.

MiMi is smooth all around with no textures other than the "Je Joue" logo and name on the front near her buttons. There is a little clear plastic that shows a heart shaped red light when she is on or charging. MiMi's smoothness is great for beginners, and her variety of vibrations will appeal to the majority of people. Her two buttons are located at the top of the toy and double as the charging nodes.

MiMi has no overt odor or taste to her. She is solid and will not bend or flex. She may move a bit at higher settings though (which I will explain in the functions section).
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

MiMi's design is simple, cute, and discreet. She is made to fit in the palm of your hand, measuring in at a little over 3 inches in length. She is tapered to a point at her tail end and at her middle she is widest at 5 inches around. I would call this a modified egg shape. She is easy to hold, and light! I don't know her exact weight, but first picking her up will pleasantly surprise you. Her weight will never make your hands or arms tired from holding her.



MiMi banks on being superior in terms of discretion. She is 1 Bee on her lower settings and becomes about 2 Bees at her highest settings. She can't be heard beyond a closed door. Her appearance in general is discreet. She could be mistaken as a paper weight with a little distance if you happen to leave her out. If she is in her black packaging, no one will suspect what is inside unless they are familiar with Je Joue. And if they are, give them a gold star, they deserve to know then anyway :)

Overall, MiMi is discreet enough to stick in a purse, makeup bag, or decent sized pocket. Because you have to hold her button for a couple a seconds to turn on, it isn't likely she will accidentally turn on during travel.

Functions / Performance / Controls

MiMi has three buttons: + - and a a sideways "S" or squiggly button in the middle. I first mistook it for a logo or something, because it takes a bit of effort to push that middle button. When you do, you can get a variety of pattern settings.



The buttons and use are pretty intuitive. Holding her plus button for a couple of seconds will turn her on. She has a 5 standard vibrations in increasing intensities. Press the plus button for a stronger setting and the minus to go down the scale. Her lower setting is great for those who are more sensitive. At any standard vibration, you can press her squiggly, middle button. Now you have an additional 5 settings you can scroll through. They are: pulse, faster pulse, accelerating pulses, stronger accelerating, and a super one. MiMi ranges from 1 to 4 Vrooms on her vibration settings. She should be able to please the majority of clitorises, but those with "clits o' steel" may find it a little difficult to get your O.

MiMi also has a trade off of sorts. At her higher vibe settings, she becomes more difficult to hold in place. The vibrations can easily be felt in your hands and up your arm. Because of her size, the vibrations can be felt throughout the entire toy. If you hold on to MiMi tighter, you hands will feel more vibrations. You can also get the "itchy numb" feeling on your fingers from extended play on the higher settings. This one con is a trade off for discretion. If you were to have a handle or big base, like larger toys and wands, you would lose the discretion. It is up to you to see what you value most.

Another great quality of MiMi is that she is 100% waterproof. The can be fully submerged and functions well in both showers and bathtubs. This is because she is completely sealed and has a magnetic charger that doubles as her buttons. MiMi takes about 1-2 hours to charge. Her light blinks when she is charging and stops blinking when she is done. Her charge holds well. You can use her multiple times between charges.

    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Because she is waterproof and made for external use, MiMi is easy to clean. She can be wiped down with a wet wipe or washed with soap and water. Because is is smooth, there aren't many places for debris to collect. You can always submerge her for a thorough cleaning. You can also look at her in the light and see if any residue is on her. She can't be boiled because she has electrical components. Being made of silicone MiMi should only be used with water based lubricant. Her silicone is so amazing I wouldn't even think of doing a test spot on her.

Once MiMi is dry, she can be stored in her orignal packaging if you kept it. If not, she will fit just about anywhere you store your toys. I would recommend wrapping her in a cloth since her size could make her slip to the bottom of a box and get jostled around. Because I keep MiMi in her packaging, I haven't seen much debris collect on her. Being silicone, though, I assume she attracts some lint.

Packaging

I LOVE the packaging Je Joue gives for MiMi. It is some of the best long-term storage packaging I've seen. It reminds me of an iPod charing station for some reason. Enough of my babble, here' s picture of the main packaging with the top taken off.



After you take off the outer, glossy, cardboard packaging you have this. The material is probably a cardboard with a cloth-like covering on it (it reminds me of certain reusable bags, if that helps). The top of the box has "Je Joue" on it in shiny silver letters. Then inside, MiMi sits in a little plastic bed. To her side is a little flap that you pull open for the charger and the little booklet of instructions. I kept my charger bound how it came so it fits easily in the box compartment. You can also leave MiMi charging with the box open so she doesn't have to be on the floor. It is discreet for what it is.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage

Personal comments

After many thorough observations and studies, I have concluded that MiMi has many more pros than cons. I think that compared to other discreet vibes that are waterproof and rechargeable, she is a fair price. She seems made to last, and I hope she does. She feels and looks great, and the only complaint I can muster is that she is hard to keep in place on higher vibe settings because she can make your fingers numb.

Experience

Random but entertaining: put MiMi on her highest vibe setting and place her on a flat, yet soft surface (like your bed). She will proceed to "chase her tail" and move in circles. This may be dumb and inane to some, but I found it amusing.

My boyfriend also likeS MiMi for his own use. He is able to get stimulation through his jeans at the highest setting. For that matter, you can get decent stimulation through clothes with MiMi on her higher settings. It would not be as direct, but it is great for teasing.

MiMi also fits in a shower caddy nicely. Mine is an opaque, yet slightly see-through color and MiMi looks like a bar of soap in it. It makes shower time fun.
Follow-up commentary
I love my MiMi, but I prefer my We-Vibe Tango when it comes to clitoral vibes. Still, MiMi is great, especially if you're looking for a waterproof vibes. MiMi is completely submersible. The one thing is that I wish she held her charge a bit better. If you haven't used MiMi in a while, the charge does whittle down.

Still, MiMi is still a good choice for many women looking for a good clitoral vibe. MiMi can numb your hands depending on how you hold it, but as a discreet, small, clit vibe this amount of vibration is normal and expected.

Overall, MiMi is a good vibe worth its price. What more can I ask for?
