I'm seeing red.

This toy was really very fun, but does have its down sides. For only $11, it's really a great little add on to your toy chest though.

Use

The infrared dual action massager is going to be a staple for my toy chest. I love this toy! The toy has two options, you can use it with or without the infrared heat, and it also has multiple speed settings.

When I tried using the infrared heat, I noticed it a lot on my bare skin like my hands or arm. It seems to take a long time before I notice it in my vagina, and by the time I do notice it there, it was too hot for me, and I needed to turn it off. The toy on its own without the heat is excellent though, and I definitely enjoyed it.

This toy is great for beginners and advanced players alike because of its simple design. The infrared heat feels amazing just passing over your clit, but like I mentioned, it does tend to get a bit hot so you won't really want to keep it up for too long. The infrared heat itself has only one setting, so you cannot turn it down at all, which is a shame.

Material / Texture

I did not notice any smell of any kind coming off this toy. The dual action infrared massager is made from a very smooth food grade phthalates free plastic, and has 7" of insertable length. The toy is a pretty good width for beginners at only 1.5" around, and the entire thing is quite rigid. The infrared tip extends at a slant approximately 1.5 inches from the tip, and is completely smooth. Directly below it there is a white O ring. If you were to run your fingers across the infrared tip past the O ring, you would definitely feel the change in texture, but I didn't notice anything like that when I inserted it. The base where you grasp the controls is ridged slightly.

Design / Shape / Size

The overall shape of this toy is very classic, and easy to use. Beginners will love this toy for its simplicity, but advanced users will also like the "twist" of the added infrared heated tip.

This toy is not incredibly discreet, and the box it comes in wouldn't help you to hide it very well either, so beware if you live in a dorm or roommate situation! The toy would easily fit into a sock drawer or pillow however.

One major flaw in this toy is that the heat is controlled by turning the same part that you turn to open the battery pack. This means that if you are playing with the infrared heat and want to turn your toy off because it gets too hot, you're going to want to take the toy out to adjust it. Half the time when I tried to adjust it with it inside me, the battery part popped right open. I really think this toy would have benefited by having a different button or dial than the battery compartment to adjust the heat. It might sound like a little thing, but when you're in the heat of the moment, it's really a big nuisance.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The toy worked very well, with the exception of the infrared controls. The fact that you need to twist it the SAME direction as you would in order to change the battery does pose a problem if you want to turn the heat off in the middle of a session. The vibrations are easily controlled through a dial on the very bottom of the toy. The further towards the right you turn the dial, the stronger the vibrations.

Even on the highest setting, the toy isn't too loud at all. You could use this toy with the bedroom door shut and no one would know. The infrared setting doesn't add any noise to the toy at all, which is also a plus.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

This toy is fairly easy to clean. Because it is made of high quality plastic, you really just need some mild soap and water or else a good toy cleaner. There is one thing you need to keep an eye on, however. The O ring, located directly below the infrared heating element does tend to trap dirt and "debris" due to the fact that it doesn't extend flush up to the plastic surrounding it. I tried using the toy with a condom, which made it easier to clean, but harder to adjust the heating element.
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The toy came packaged in a standard cardboard box, which you probably won't want to store your toy in, only because it is just not going to hold up over time. The user instructions also left much to be desired - it was just a 2"X4" picture of how to insert the batteries!
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

This toy does have a couple of minor flaws, but all in all, I think it is a great toy for the price. If you're a beginner just starting out, this is not a bad investment. Aside from the problem with the heat, it's a pretty fun toy.
Follow-up commentary
Now that I've learned the controls better, I find that the battery pack pops off a lot less which is awesome. This toy is getting a lot more use now, and you really can't beat it for the price.
