Frustration, Frustration...Oh Wait

In all reality I was a little disappointed. The vibe definitely doesn't work for me for the intended purpose, but it may be okay for a beginner. Even though it isn't my first choice it does work well on other parts of the body, specifically the clit. It is a beautiful toy but is also very loud especially since those vibrations are all buzzy and no action. For the money I think there are more valuable toys out there that can get the job done!

Use

This vibrator has a bend in the tip, so when inserted, it provides specific stimulation to the G-spot area. It is not intimidating looking at all, about average length and pretty slender. The shine it has makes it very attractive. It can be used in a number of ways. You can also use it to stimulate nipples, p-spot, anal play and even massage. Unless you're someone who prefers the smaller very gentle toys I think it is best used for foreplay situations rather than really getting yourself to orgasm. I prefer using it as a clit vibe rather than it's intended purpose. The bend in it makes for a perfect angle on it that can actually send you over the edge pretty quickly.

When I tried this toy I tried for a very long period of time, using it as intended and became very frustrated. I found that it did nothing for me as a G-spot vibe. The vibrations are very buzzy but really don't do anything. The sound and how loud it is makes you think it has some power. When placed inside though it almost feels like it turned off. Then I figured out that using it on the outside for clit stimulation was great. Since it isn't very powerful it works great as a foreplay item and to tease those sensitive parts.

Material / Texture

This vibe is made of plastic with a metallic coating on it. There is also a small amount of silicone for the button. Touching the surface of this toy you can't believe how smooth it really is. There is definitely no taste or smell.

Taking into consideration how slender this vibe is and the very small amount of vibration, it would be best used for beginners. Someone who is use to the the stronger G-spot vibrators out there would not be impressed.

While plastic is very safe, I am a little concerned about the coating. The coating can come off very easily and if your using this for insertion, I am not sure that is such a good thing. It is just a metallic paint but for some I think it could become a problem. Also if it is beginning to chip the surface will no longer be as smooth and could cause some irritation.

Design / Shape / Size

This design is about 6 1/2" inches in length including the cap and button, and 5 1/2" inches without.
It is about 1" inch wide and 3/4" in diameter. The slender design has a 2 1/2" inch circumference and the bend for G-spot stimulation is about 1" inch as well.

The slender vibe would be great for a beginner or anyone looking for that specific g-spot contact. When inserted you want the bend pointed toward your belly button so that it will touch your g-spot. Since you can push in or pull out as much as needed it should be a good fit for any body type. I personally didn't feel that it did much in my g-spot area though. If you like bigger sizes or strong vibrations this isn't the toy your looking for no matter beginner or advanced user.

Since it is very small and you can remove batteries and it gets slightly smaller, I think it would be a great toy to throw in your purse or travel bag. If someone does happen to see it though they will definitely know what it is. I also wouldn't use it in a situation where you don't want anyone to hear the toy. It is decently loud.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The slender G has 5 functions.
1. Starts with long sets of pulses and the pulses get shorter and faster as it continues and then starts over
2. Same series of pulses but then it stops and does a solid vibration for a few seconds
3. Fast pulsing
4. Steady vibration
5. Steady then pulses quickly then back to steady, keeps repeating.

There is only one button that is located on the end of the vibe. This is your on and off and your function control. You do have to cycle through all 5 to turn the toy off which can be a pain sometimes. The button is easy to push even when the toy is covered in lube.

When you turn the toy on it sounds very impressive. I was shocked how loud it was, but learned quickly it was all buzz. The vibrations don't carry through very well. When inserted you will feel little of the vibrations. Because of this I like the fast pulsing or the steady vibration the best since they were constant.

I did test the toy in the water even though I was hesitant. It states the toy is waterproof but I was a little concerned about the water getting in at the seam of the cap. So far it handled the water well and there were no issues. I don't think I would recommend completely submerging it too often though.

Care and Maintenance

The manufacture recommends cleaning with alcohol or your preferred toy cleaner. Then store it in a cool and dry place. Storing it on it's own not combined with other products with different types of materials since this can cause a break down in chemical structures. Always clean before and after each use and remove batteries before storing the toy to prevent corrosion if there is any moisture present. It is listed as waterproof but you want to make sure the cap is on tightly and correctly. I would still recommend being careful how wet you allow the toy to get as it doesn't seem that the cap will keep all water out.

You can use antibacterial soap, toy cleaner or toy wipes to clean this product. It is very easy to clean just make sure to clean around the seam of the cap very well.

It doesn't collect lint or anything like that as some toys do so you can keep it anywhere. I still recommend putting inside a toy bad by itself or something similar so that you can avoid scratching the metallic coating.

Any lube should be okay with this toy since it is made of hard plastic. I would watch to make sure none of the lubes are causing any break down to the coating on the toy though. Keeping an eye on the coating is a good idea anyway. If it begins to come off it is probably best to stop using the vibe.

Packaging

It came in a see through plastic box. Between the wording on the box and being able to see the toy clearly through the packaging it is not very discreet at all. I think if I was going to give this as a gift I would wrap it or place in gift box/bag since the original packaging isn't the best. I have seen worse though it's not bad it's just not that appealing. There is quite a bit of information just on the outside of the box. It lists the features of the product and that it requires 2 "AAA" batteries. Clearly stated are the materials used, using only water based lubricant with this product and a warning to make sure you securely twist cap securely before use. They also mention to wash the toy before and after every use.

When you open the box the vibe is inside of another plastic piece that slide out of the box so it is definitely secure in shipping. All that is inside is the toy and instructions.

The instructions are short and sweet and really don't include much more than the outside of the box. There are simple instructions on how to put the batteries in properly. I want to mention when you remove the cap to put your batteries in there is a rolled piece of cardboard you must remove before doing so. They do mention that you should use a good amount of lube being careful that this doesn't get into the battery area. This can keep the battery from making a proper connection and the unit won't work properly. They recommend removing your batteries when it's not in use to prevent corrosion.

Experience

I noticed that while inserted if you move the toy around the bend can cause some discomfort in certain areas. So if your using it on yourself or especially if someone else has control of it have them use caution not to hurt you.
Follow-up commentary
I am still not crazy about this toy at all. I have tried it several different ways to see if I would like it more without much success. The only purposes I feel it is good for is the clit or possibly prostate if done carefully, only because it can take a lot less vibration for that type of stimulation. Anytime I have used it for it's intended purpose, it's rather uncomfortable and you don't feel it really at all once inserted. It is just all buzz with no real vibration, which to me is extremely frustrating. Last time I checked, noise isn't really what we are looking for in a toy. Maybe with a little more power this toy could be improved.

    Ya, I agree definitely not strong enough for anyone in my opinion. Oh well I guess there are always going to be the ones we end up with that we dislike. I just hope I can save someone else from the disappointment.
