Big And Undeniably BlueWhile I am not totally in love with the sound this toy makes at max speed I do love the way it makes me feel full! It works amazing as a clitoral stimulator and a teasing vibe for say, a blowjob. It has a lovely clear blue body that allows the user to see the inner workings of the toy and comes in a lovely box perfect for storage. For my money this is well worth the cost!
I love large vibrators and the lovely tins these come in so this vibe was a shoe in. The Florentine is part of the Citron edition and is a super girth-y traditional three speed vibrator composed of TPR. It arrives in a beautiful purple and blue metal box. The vibe itself is encased in a two part sandwich of foam, the bottom piece is flat and the top is cut to conform to the curves of the Florentine. The metal top of the box is machine cut to showcase the vibrator inside. You could definitely store the vibe inside the box, it's how I store mine. The box is rather large and not at all discreet, though, which might be a concern for some users.
The vibe itself measures in at 8 inches, this is no small pocket rocket! Fully 6.5 inches of this vibrator are insertable and it has a circumference of 6 inches. This is NOT a slimline toy and might be a bit big for some users. It is, however, made of TPR which is squishy enough to have a bit of give making the girth a bit more manageable.
It weighs a quarter of a pound so it's pretty substantial while not being too heavy for easy use. It is front end loaded so while inserted most of the weight will be inside making it very easy to develop a rhythm and not tire out before the big finish.
The toy starts out with a blunt rounded tip, that won't irritate or cause bruising during thrusting due to the blunt end and give of the TPR material, before it swells out in a rocket shape complete with 'fins'. The fins are what add the girth but are also what allow for quite a lot of give, without them I think this toy would be too large for me and I am a bonafide size queen!
The stem of the toy is quite narrow and it tapers to the end cap with twists off to reveal the battery housing. The battery housing has a pull out battery case that can be used to store the 2 AA batteries outside the toy to prevent leakage and battery drain. Pretty nifty, right?
The push button on the bottom of the base controls the vibrations and turns the vibe off as well.
The first speed is the deepest rumbling I have seen on a vibe to date. It's not very powerful, but it is very easily felt on the tip of the toy where the bullet is located.
The second speed cranks the vibrations up a few notches but they loose their deeper more rumbly characteristics. The vibes are faster but much more surface and higher pitched. They are definitely stronger in the tip of the toy.
The third speed excelerates the vibrations to super high pitched, buzzy and are all on the surface. This speed might be too much for some users with more sensitive clits but it is pretty passable for Clits'O'Steel.
The vibrations travel through to the base of the toy fairly well but the strongest vibrations are concentrated in the head of the toy. You must cycle through the speeds to turn the vibe off.
I turned the Florentine on to high speed and placed the toy on top of the covers on my bed. I closed the door to my bedroom and stood outside listening. I could hear the toy happily buzzing away. Now would the sound be muffled if it were under the covers and inserted? Undoubtedly! It has a high pitch to it that is sort of unpleasant, though.
The Florentine can be washed in warm water with mild soap, you could also use a commercial toy cleaner or spritz it with a 10% bleach and water solution. It is waterproof and I have yet to find any water leakage even after dunking it in water during washing and using it in the shower.
Though it receives pretty high marks for material quality, TPR is till porous and should be covered with a condom if you plan to share the toy.
It is not really built for anal play as the base has nothing what so ever to stop the toy slipping inside the anus.
You can use any type of lube you prefer with the Florentine and I have found that it is best to be prepared to use a bit more than you would normally use. The TPR is slightly porous and seems to soak up a bit of the lube.
The fins act like a juicer so this can be a pretty messy toy as well. My Throe comes in handy when I am using the Florentine!
The vibe works great as a clitoral vibrator, a G spot vibe (if your spot is easily stimulated and you don't require tons of direct pressure) and for stimulation play for nipples, penis, scrotum, taint and anywhere else you find sexy!
