Boring HarmonyWith toys it's all about knowing what the intended use is. If you like slim vibes and you don't need a lot of power, Harmony Radiance can work for you. Or if a slim tapered anal vibe is on your wish list - this could be one to try. Just be aware that it lacks the flare that many prefer for anal toys.
Harmony Radiance could also be used for clitoral stimulation - the curve makes it easy to apply pressure as needed without contorting your wrist like you would for a straight vibe. If you like to use vibes for your nipples or other body parts there isn't any reason why the Harmony Radiance wouldn't be a good choice.
The battery compartment has on 'o' ring and the buttons are sealed so it's waterproof enough for easy cleaning or for use in the shower or jacuzzi.
You will not want to use the full 8" for penetration. The controls are 5.5" from the tip - and should probably be the extent of penetration. However, the controls are sealed and neither you or the toy should suffer any damage if you get carried away and go beyond the 5.5" point.
The little ball at the tip is about 3/4" in diameter so it should make for easy insertion either vaginally or anally. A lot of purist will say that Harmony Radiance is not anal safe because it has no flare. Fair enough - but I can report to having used in many times and had no problems with losing it inside.
Just past the ball - the shaft drops off to 1/2" - then tapers back out to 1.25" over about 5" in length. The gradual taper is smooth and can serve as a good toy for opening up tight spaces - if you need that sort of thing.
The curve is also useful as an ergonomic aid to make clitoral stimulation easy without over torquing your wrist.
The controls are simple and easy to use. There are two sealed black buttons '+' & '-' that have the obvious effect on vibrations. Press the + button 1 to 4 times increases the intensity as you go. Reversing with the - button brings it back down. No annoying patterns, if you like that sort of thing, try something different.
The vibrations go from mild to medium and the sound level goes from low to medium. The modest power of this vibe is another indication that it is geared toward beginners. I wouldn't say it's too loud for a dorm room - but using it under the covers and turning on the vibes after penetration will help your private time - stay private.
I would not recommend boiling Harmony Radiance to disinfect it. A light alcohol or bleach rub should do the trick for sanitizing the toy after anal - or sharing.
Harmony is small and easy to conceal - just drop her in your sock drawer and she'll be there when needed. The plastic packaging could be retained, it would just take up a lot of space.
If you like using original packaging - this will work for you. For us the package takes up too much space - it just goes in the toy drawer with the rest of our goodies.
So how did it work? For me pretty good. With a little silicone lube the tip slipped in easily and the taper made for a nice stretch and relax sensation as my wife stroked it inside - and the curve help transfer some vibration to my prostate. However most of the vibrations are in the center of the vibe at where it's about 1" in diameter - the vibes focus nicely on my sphincter muscles allowing the vibes to radiate throughout my pelvic area.
For my wife I had hoped that the gradual taper would help her get comfortable with the stretch of something larger than the 3/4" she's use to. Although Harmony did a nice job with that - it turns out that the taper is a bad choice because with a dildo or vibe inserted vaginally the curve caused uncomfortable pressure. So for her worked OK for anal only - but not dual penetration.
