Like A Giant Happy Pill...I really love this toy. It offers eight different types of vibrations and varying levels of intensity, making it a must-have for fantasizing at home alone. The simple design and fairly small size make it great for travel. Fun to use with a partner too!
Sleek design, powerful, variety.
This is such a fun toy! It fits nicely into all of the crevices one might think of exploring (though it is not designed for internal use). There are three vibration speed settings and then five additional unique vibration patterns. This is a great toy to use alone, especially on nights when one is feeling uninspired. The unique vibration patterns can lead to some interesting sensations and inspire some unusual fantasies, but in the end I found that the three standard vibration settings were typically the winners. For such a simple-looking device it's quite powerful.
The material is hard plastic with some sort of grippy ring around the middle (silicone? softer plastic?). I am a fan of the hard plastic because I think it transfers more intense vibrations. Users who prefer a softer, more sensual experience might want to avoid this toy.
I love how this toy is shaped... quite phallic in a way. It's not too big to use discreetly, but not too small to get lost in the sheets. The design is fairly discreet and would be ideal to travel with, though I think anyone might have a hard time trying to explain what it is if discovered (good 'ol back massager story?).
There's one button on the end of the ONYE, which cycles through the vibrations in the same order. The great thing about this is you can up the intensity (or type) of vibration with just one push of the button. The downside is that you have to cycle through everything to go backwards. I found myself learning to count the pushes so I'd know where I was going, which made it a non-issue for me, but I suppose others might be annoyed. To me, the simplicity of the design outweighs the slight impracticality of the eight vibes.
This toy is very easy to clean and care for; just clean it up after use and it's good to go. No crevices to clean. It does seem to go through batteries at a decent pace, but given the intensity of its vibrations it's not an unreasonable rate of consumption.
The ONYE comes in a cute little box that almost resembles a coffin (with the satin lining inside).
This is by far my favorite toy right now. Unfortunately, the little plastic parts that held it together on the insides snapped less than a year after buying it (although the motor is still going strong). Maybe I'm rough on my toys, but I wish the company had constructed the toy with more rigorous construction and longevity in mind. The little plastic pieces were so dainty it wasn't much of a surprise when they finally snapped off (making the toy looser, the battery contacts less secure, and the overall vibrations less intense). Right now I have it held together with duct tape.
Although I think this toy is a shining star for solo performances, my boyfriend enjoys using it on me because it is so easy to use! Great for a warm-up as well as the finishing act.
Follow-up commentary 28 months after original review
After about one year of dedicated use, the body of the Onye cracked, rendering it unusable. I tried to salvage it by wrapping tape around the body, but alas, it wasn't ever going to be the same again. Such a bummer when the motor is still going strong, but the casing is kaput. All in all, I would still recommend the Onye as a fun vibe to try out, but don't expect longevity, especially if you tend to be a little hard on things. No pun intended.
