No Mini Vibes in this Astro Gem

Even if this silicone toy looks simple at a first glance, the variety in size and shape makes it really interesting for whomever needs a traditional vibrator, which can also double up as a dildo of an ultimately fulfilling girth. The optical illusion with the texture, which is hardly noticeable during use, gives this toy an artistic twist that represents well the symbolism of the Gemini.

Use

The Astrovibes Gemini is a quiet traditional vibrator of variable intensity that can also be used for clitoral stimulation. Obviously, it can also be used on other erogenous zones of the body, like nipples, breasts, but is not well-suited for g-spot stimulation. Since it does not have a flared base, it is not recommended for anal play.

The shaft gradually increases in diameter, where the tip is smaller than the second part of the vibrator. This can be interesting for someone new to sex toys who wants to try various toy sizes to see what they like and how much can be inserted.

Material / Texture

The toy is made of silicone that has a good firmness, but still has some give to it. The surface is matte and has some drag to it unless some lubricant is used.

The texture is minimal, and seems to be mostly subtly decorative. It displays two sets of hands, representing the duality of the Gemini astrological sign. One of them is set at the very tip of the vibrator, while the other two hands are further down on the shaft. Only those at the tip can really be felt when pressed specifically against the clitoris and neither of them is felt during vaginal insertion.

Silicone is hypoallergenic, phthalate-free, latex-free, non-porous, odorless and taste-free. The main drawback is that silicone tends to attract lint and any fabric fiber it comes in contact with when it is dry.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

The design is researched and subtle, and depending on the angle and the focus point, you can see the illusion of womanly figures, where the side arms at the tip are transformed into lustrous hair framing featureless visages. With the fuller shaft at the bottom, it's not hard to picture the lines of a body shape, where the bump acts like shoulders. So if at a first glance, the design looks ordinary, that's because you're are not looking at it like you should be. While this toy is nonrealistic with its soft lemon yellow and nonsexual appearance, it still looks like a vibrator and is nothing discreet. The color is of a soft yellow, similar to that of a lemon sorbet.

As mentioned earlier, the diameter changes along the shaft. The tip of the vibrator has a diameter of 1 1/4" and gradually increases to reach a diameter of 1 3/4". Between the two sections is a slight bump that has a diameter of 1 1/2". The total insertable length of the Astrovibes Gemini is about 6 1/2". This toy can easily be recommended for beginner as well as people who are more advanced in toy play. However, if someone decides that the larger width is not liked, they are going to be limited to the shorter part of the Astrovibes Gemini.

The vibrator can be bended but only from the middle, right before the shaft becomes larger. The strength of the motor is not affected in a significant way while the tip is being flexed or moved sideways as a result of applying some pressure.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This vibrator is very easy to use, since it works with a dial base over the battery cap. The black section at the base is used to unscrew the battery cap, and the red section is to control the vibration levels. If you look underneath the base, there is also a diagram to show in which direction you need to turn on the toy to start it and to increase the vibration intensity.

The vibration intensities range from a low hum to a medium-high buzz, which is surprisingly quiet for a toy of that size. It would be hard to hear it through a closed door. The vibrations are mostly felt through the thinner part of the toy, near the tip. It functions with 2 AA batteries, which are not included. If you can hear the batteries move after you turn it on, try closing the cap tighter until you feel the cap clip into place.

This vibrator is not waterproof, but it is not going to suddenly break if you handle it with wet fingers or if a few drops of water come in contact with the battery cap while it is being washed.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Since this is made of silicone, this toy can be washed with mild soap and water, a toy cleaner, toy wipes as well be sanitized with a bleach solution. Normally, silicone can be boiled or put on the top rack of the dishwasher, but it is far from recommended when it comes to a non-waterproof vibrator.

It can be stored in a lint-free bag, or at least away of silicone toys of different grades of this material. Remember to only use water-based lubricants with silicone toys or a reaction could occur. The batteries should be removed between every use.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The package was a box with a front opening where the toy was displayed within a plastic shell. The box is dark blue and has some silver stars on it to represent the astrological aspect of this sex toy. Everything used for the packaging is recyclable.

The box could also be used for storage, but it is personally taking too much space for my own limited storage options. The box is 3.5" x 2.5" x 11".
    • Good for storage
    • Recyclable
Follow-up commentary
The only reason why I am saying that I am not liking it is that I have another Fun Factory toy that is giving me the exact same vibrations and usually go for this other toy than take this one out.

There's a lot of good things to say about Fun Factory and this toy. I really like the illusion created on this toy, but at this point, I need more than just a few drawn lines to have a toy stand out in my toy box. It is a case of "It's not you, it's me."

This toy is a reliable one, and I've had other Fun Factory toys. My first vibrator was from that same company and with reasonable use and appropriate maintenance, it will last a few years. However, even with the pretty color and the pretty illusion in the design, it is a little too standard in terms of sensation to offer more than my other faithful FF vibrator. I'm pretty sure it's the same motor and intensity but in a different presentation.

If I didn't have the other: yes, I'd still like it.

    The Scorpio is probably the one that stands out the most from that line, especially since it is bright red, but all of them must probably have something special.
