I think this is one of my new favorite vibrators. Its design is simple, but the execution is spot on. It works well for both internal and external stimulation and it's flexible enough to do both at once while remaining firm enough to be worth doing so.

Pros:
Great for both external & internal stimulation & bendy enough to do both at once.

Requires a little more lube than most toys, mild rubbery smell.

extremely useful review
While taking a break for personal reasons from writing reviews, I realized that there are several areas where my personal toy collection just hasn't been satisfying me. One of those areas is length. I like toys that are long enough that I could jam them in all the way up to my cervix if I wanted to and still have something left to grasp and manipulate. I didn't want anything extra-wide or realistic looking or flesh-toned, however, and it sometimes seems like all of the longer toys on the market are all of the above. With that in mind, I was intrigued to spot the XXL European purple twist in the EdenFantasys catalog. It seemed perfect for my needs. With almost ten inches of insertable length, there is plenty of toy to play with. While the rubber material is porous and should not be shared without first covering it with a condom, it tends to resist wear and tear very nicely and is safe to use with both silicone and water based lubricants. The bright purple color and the jaunty little twist on the end appealed to me as well, and the price was more than reasonable.

I ordered the XXL European purple twist with only two concerns in mind:

The first regarded the design of the vibrator. The vibrator shaft only extends halfway up the rubber portion, so I was concerned about whether the dildo would have enough rigidity for my tastes since I didn't want a floppy toy that was too soft to insert easily and wouldn't exert enough pressure when I wanted it to. This concern turned out to be groundless. While it is true that the XXL European purple twist is flexible and bendy, it is still nice and firm to the touch. In fact, I found that it was firm but flexible enough that it could easily be used for a mild impact play with nice thuddy blows, and the fact that the shaft only extends partway into the toy means that it can be used as a handle without having to worry about the impact play damaging the vibrator portion. I very much appreciated this multi-purpose aspect of the toy.

My second concern about the XXL European purple twisthad to do with a previous reviewer's experience with the toy. She mentioned having problems with the twisty part making thrusting a challenge. I did not share this problem, although I'll reiterate her admonition to make sure and use plenty of lube. The Purple Twist is smooth, but its material is not at all slick. I've never really needed to use lube for any of my other toys, including several that are wider than this one, but the material used for the Purple Twist makes lube a necessity.

As you can see, neither of my concerns presented me with any problems. The battery compartment is easy to open and shut, and the toy takes two double A batteries. It has a nice mid-range level of vibration and while the motor is audible, it's not so loud that anyone outside the room should be able to hear it. The vibrations carry quite nicely all the way down the shaft. The twists on the head are pronounced enough that you can actually feel them, which took me by complete surprise since most nubs and ridges on toys don't do anything for me, and they are wide enough that I found them quite simple to clean out.
Experience
The week the Purple Twist arrived on my doorstep, I was on vacation, so I was pleasantly surprised to arrive to not one but TWO wonderful treats in the mail - a check and a new sex toy. Talk about easing the pangs of regret about the end of my trip!

I opened the package and found myself impressed by the size of my new toy. When I place one end of the Purple Twist in the palm of my hand, the toy extends as far as my elbow. This thing is literally the length of my forearm! The toy has a mild rubbery odor, similar to the odor you might perceive when holding a baby doll. I didn't find the smell off-putting at all, and the only time I really notice it is when I bring it to my nose and sniff it (and really, how often does one sniff one's sex toys? You see what we do for the sake of our readers? If I get known as "the sex toy sniffer" from now on, just remember the sacrifices I make for the sake of your elucidation.)

When I started playing with the toy, I found it to work very well for a variety of purposes. Because of the way the vibrations carry all the way down the shaft, you can easily hold on to the handle and use the twisty head for clitoral stimulation. I quite liked the twists when playing with my clit, and I imagine it could be a lot of fun teasing a partner with it. I also liked it quite a bit for insertion. It's long enough that even when it was fully inserted I had several inches that I could easily grasp as a handle so I could manipulate the toy quite nicely. I also enjoyed inserting it halfway and bending the shaft so that the top half extended along my vulva and over my clit.

All in all, I think this may be one of my new favorite toys. I definitely recommend it.
Follow-up commentary
I'm glad to report that I still like this toy a lot. It does appear to have gotten a little floppier over time and acquired a slight permanent curve (presumably one that mimics my own inner curves) however, and that can be inconvenient at times when I'm trying to aim it at certain key spots using external guidance. It's not much of a precision instrument, but it's still fun and it's continued to be one of my go-to toys to play with.
