Clearly a High-Powered Toy

This toy is worth the price, which isn't much. I think although it is not a very fancy or high quality toy, it will be one of my staples until it breaks or I find something better. It's reliable so far and does it's job very well.

Use

This is an excellent vibrator for when you are really in the mood for lots of power. The nubbed surface provides excellent clitoral stimulation, but I found that it also makes it less than perfect for penetration. If your partner sometimes has trouble hitting or staying on "just the right spot," these nubs can assist in making sure you are adequately stimulated. This is not a fancy, fully-loaded toy, but very basic with a twist operation on the base. I would recommend it for anyone, beginner or experienced toy user, who would like to have a reliable vibrator for use on a regular basis since it will always do the job.

Material / Texture

Made of TPR silicone, it was easy to relax knowing that this is a pretty hygienic material. There is no discernible smell to this toy. It is rigid because of the underlying hard plastic case, but the outer sleeve has a tiny amount of give to it. It does have a nice feeling to it because of the TPR, and the nubs actually make it very easy to hold on to even while lubricated. I really enjoy stimulation given by the texture of this toy because of the nubs, and I would look for other toys with a similar surface in the future. Unlike some other materials, this toy does not stick to your skin when wet (for example, in the shower) and cause unpleasant sensations but instead slides easily. In fact, it does very well in the shower - which I again credit to the nubbed surface texture.

Design / Shape / Size

Again, a very, very basic toy. It's powered by AAA batteries and does give you what you've paid for. It's a good basic piece. Small, but big enough to feel nice if you do want to use it for insertion. At a diameter of 1 3/8", it's maybe as wide as if you were to hold two fingers together, and the nubs add a little more to the girth. Of its modest 6" length, about the first two thirds of it are actually insertable. It's a little noisy, but I wasn't really paying attention to the sound while I was using it - I'm too distracted by the amazingly strong vibrations.

It's also waterproof (and says so right on the package) meaning that you can take it in shower with you without having to worry about shorting it out. The clear sleeve and case also allow you to see the moving parts inside - which may appeal to your mechanically nerdy side, or it may be distracting and less pleasurable depending on your inclination. It can also make for an interesting shared experience.

Functions / Performance / Controls

I would comment that the toy I received did not have a completely perfect dial operation. I'm not sure if this is the toy in general or just the one that I received. There was somewhat of a break in the speeds, making for a jumpy first few uses. The toy starts off with very soft vibration, working up to moderate speeds until there was no motion at all. When I kept twisting after that it started up again suddenly with very strong vibrations. So not that great for a steady increase in vibration strength. Also, the rigid design and the type of control does not allow for you to continually move and play while adjusting the vibration speed. I would think a beginner may be slightly overwhelmed by the stronger vibrations, but it would leave plenty of room for you to "grow" in your bedroom experiences. For those looking for strong vibrations, here is a heavily buzzing toy with the vibration mechanism located just below the tip of the toy.

The sensations were definitely improved by the use of water-based lubricant. (Remember, it's silicone so no silicone lubricants!) Overall, the toy is very firm and not at all flexible.

    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

It's easy to clean though with mild soap and water or toy cleaner. Store it away from other jelly or silicone toys. The package actually could be cut down to make a nice storage container if you wanted to keep it in a box or drawer with other toys. Remember not to use silicone-based lubricant with this toy, only oil-based or water-based. (I personally have found the water-based work best.)

Packaging

The package is very basic - a plastic shell with cardboard insert that says "Waterproof Softies" across the front. It was surprisingly easy to open too - it just popped right open, which made me worry a little that it could have been opened and previously handled without me knowing so I washed it very well before use and checked out the speeds to make sure that it was in working condition. There are instructions for installing the batteries. As I said before, this package could be cut down to make a nice storage container in case you wanted to keep it closed up and store it with other toys in a box or drawer. I wouldn't recommend giving it as a gift unwrapped as it is a very basic package and not that pretty.

Personal comments

I have ended up using this toy fairly regularly since I got it. I am now using it instead of my bullet vibrator as a go-t to toy. I hope it lasts for a long time since I have made it a staple of my toy collection.

Experience

I really liked it, and so did my boyfriend. Actually he kept talking about it for a few days after. It really made me crazy (in a good way!) and he enjoyed being able to cause so much excitement with it. I will definitely use this as one of my go-to toys. It's a good standard, and can really kick up the power compared to my other standard vibrator which is a variable speed bullet. Unlike the bullet, this toy has the integrated power control which is nice when you don't want to have to search for the remote while playing or dealing with a cord. And even though you cannot operate the speed control on this toy one handed, it makes for a more focused experience. I have a hard time lasting very long with this toy at the higher speeds since it makes me want to come right away. I would encourage you to use all the speeds and work your way up since jumping right to the stronger vibrations could actually hurt because of the nubbed texture if you aren't warmed up enough. The nubs on the surface provided a little too much texture for it to be comfortable on my nipples or many other sensitive places on my body.
Follow-up commentary
Definitely a standby. This is my go-to toy and I still use it more often than any other. It's versatile and satisfies every time. And the battery life is better than I would have thought. Even after almost daily use, I have had to change the batteries only once so far. A good buy, hands-down.
