My Ultimate Clit Vibe

MiMi is strong, rumbly, and provides me with the broad stimulation I need to reach orgasm. It also allows me to use tons of pressure, which is essential for me! I couldn't have dreamed up a better clitoral vibrator for myself, Je Joue really won my heart. It's perfect to turn up and get off quick, or turn down and take my time. Either way, you need this vibrator in your collection.

Use

I had been eying MiMi for a long time, but every time I went to place an order, it was out of stock. I'm super impatient so I always ended up ordering something else. My only regret is that I did not order my MiMi sooner!

MiMi is primarily a clitoral vibrator, but can be used in many ways, and for all genders. I like to stimulate my nipples, and my partner liked the vibrations on the head of his penis. It can be used to stimulate most parts of your body, but do not insert this anally! There is no retrieval method or base, and this toy is meant to be used externally. I recommend both solo and partner play!

Since MiMi is waterproof, I like to take it into the tub with a glass of wine. After a long hard day at work this really helps me unwind.

Material / Texture

MiMi has a very firm body made from ABS plastic then covered in velvety silicone. It's very rigid which is great for those of us who like to use pressure. Those who don't like texture will appreciate the smoothness, and while I do enjoy texture, it's not missed at all. MiMi's silicone is non-porous, Phthalates & latex free, and hypo-allergenic; this scores a perfect 10 on the Eden Safety Scale! Out of the box there was absolutely no smell or taste.

The velvety silicone felt amazing gliding over my pierced nipples and clit. There is very little drag so no lube is required. Of course, feel free to use a water based one if you are like me and want to lube everything up! Over all I'm really impressed with the quality and feel of MiMi's body.

Note: While MiMi is very smooth, toward the controls there is a little heart with Je Joue stamped on it. it's not detectable during use though, so I don't consider it to be textured.

Design / Shape / Size

It was really love at first site for MiMi and I. While I wasn't a fan of the color options, I adore the cute discreet body. It reminds me of a massage stone or one of those river rocks shaped perfectly to skip across the water. At first it may take you a few minutes to adjust to the shape, so don't write this toy off before you fully acquaint yourself. I personally think the design is very discreet and easily overlooked if someone were scanning your bedroom. Unfortunately though, there is no locking feature so travel at your own risk. The buttons are fairly difficult to push so if you surrounded it with clothes you should be fine.

It fits easily and naturally in my small hands, and the shape doesn't leave me fumbling like my We-Vibe Salsa sometimes does. Over-all, the size and shape are absolutely perfect for me. The surface is broad so the vibrations disperse wider and less concentrated (but still strong) than on a toy like the Salsa. You can use the tip instead of the side and this will provide a some-what pinpoint stimulation. For those that absolutely need that super concentrated pinpoint stimulation, MiMi will probably be a little disappointing. MiMi

In the case of MiMi, the size is pretty much all about your preference. Since there's a broad surface, it's a little bigger and covers more surface area of whatever you happen to be stimulating. Fortunately for me, the firm broad body fits my every need in a clitoral vibrator.

Size:
Top to bottom- 3.25 inches
Circumference at widest point- 5 1/8 inches
Width at widest point- 2 inches
Thickness- About 1 inch

Functions / Performance / Controls

MiMi is rechargeable, so when you receive yours make sure you charge it for 2 hours or until the red light on MiMi stops blinking. To charge, align the two magnets on the charger with the silver control buttons on your toy. You will feel them pull each other.
Charger
Charging
When the charger is plugged in you will see the blue indicator light on it, and a red one on the toy. These let you know they are charging. Unlike other magnetic charging systems, this one stayed connected well. The magnetic charging ensures MiMi will not take on any liquid when washing or using it in the water. As I mentioned earlier, the water is one of my favorite places to use it.

There is a + sign, - sign, and a little squigly ~ line.
MiMi controls

To turn MiMi on hold down the + sign. There are 5 intensity levels, to increase the intensity just press the + until you reach the one you desire. To turn it down press the -, and to turn it off just hold the - down until it shuts off. You can use any of the 6 vibration patterns with any intensity. Once you find the strength you prefer press the ~ to access the patterns. You can also change the intensity while in a pattern. There is no memory so MiMi will turn back on at the lowest constant vibration. You have to cycle all the way through the vibrations every time, there is no going backwards.

Patterns:
1. Medium paced pulse
2. Roller-coaster pulsing with no pause in vibrations
3. Drawn out pulse with a short pause
4. Quick pulse
5. Long pulse with a short pause
6. Longer Pulse with longer pause

I liked them all and even managed to climax with them which is unusual for me.

Since the vibrations are so evenly distributed, I can't exactly tell where they are originating from. On the lowest setting I give it 2.5 vrooms, and the highest is a very strong 4/4.5 vrooms. The first setting can bring me to orgasm because it's so deep and rumbly! I rarely need the highest setting, the vibration quality is just that incredible. This is the only toy that has been able to push my clit beyond that "no more orgasms for today" wall.

I tested the bees with my partner. With him sitting 5 feet away from me and his back turned (very low TV in the background) he couldn't hear it. Sitting the same way on the highest setting he had to struggle to hear anything. I would give the lowest setting 1 bee and the highest 2 bees. Hardly heard through covers and definitely not heard through a closed door.

My only issue is that the buttons are hard to press. Over time they do become easier to press, and the 3 button control system is very convenient. The battery life is good and the vibrations don't decrease as it dies.

Care and Maintenance

Je Joue recommends using warm water and soap to clean your MiMi, though I have also used toy wipes when pressed for time. It's small and easily stashed in your nightstand or in your toy box. Unfortunately it does not come with a storage pouch so I store it in the box for now. Eventually I will purchase a pouch or use one from another toy.

I have heard mixed things about storing silicone toys together so I choose to be safe and keep it from touching my others.

Je Joue also recommends only using water-based lubricant, so I use my favorite, Sassy by Sliquid.
    • Easy to clean

Packaging

MiMi comes packaged in a very obvious outer box:

Outer box

It talks about how it's a toy, and vibrates, so not very discreet.

The inner black box is classier and simply says Je Joue on it with the logo. It would be great for gifting:
Inner box

Inside of that is your MiMi fitted into a little dip molded just for it. There's a little ribbon that flips up the other half of the box. Inside of that is your charger and user manual.
Inside box

The user manual is in multiple languages and really informative. It tells you how to clean, charge, what lubricant to use, how to use the controls, about the silicone, and some warnings about not charging near water and stuff.

MiMi comes with a limited 1 year warranty that covers any defects or problems with the material. It does not cover damage due to misuse or if you went against the warnings in the user manual. They will fix or replace MiMi free of charge if it is a defect.
    • Very informative
    • Would make a nice gift

Experience

My only problem with MiMi is the hard to push buttons. Other than that, it's perfect for me. I feel like I need to apologize for overloading this review with information, but I wanted to make sure I didn't leave anything out!
Follow-up commentary
This is my absolute favorite vibrator right now. The vibrations are so powerful and rumbly, and never fail to get me off. The battery life lasted me a while, but it's important to note that it does not decrease power when the battery is draining. It just dies abruptly.
