Not so Intense

Do you forget to do your kegel exercises on a regular basis, but know that you need to do them for your health? Don't fret, Jopen introduced the Intensity to do just that. It uses electrostimulation to force your pc muscles to contract allowing them to become stronger without you having to do the work.

Use

The Jopen Intensity combines electrostimulation for strengthening pc muscles and a clitoral arm to provide stimulation to the clitoris. I do not use the clitoral arm and am glad that it has a seperate control because I find it is unnecessary for my needs. I ordered this for the sole purpose of strengthening my pc muscles and having the machine do my kegel exercises for me. I'm terrible about forgetting to do my kegel exercises on my own and once I saw this available I knew I had to get my hands on it. The Intensity works by using electrostimulation to force your pc muscles to contract. This is much easier than sitting and squeezing your pc muscles on your own all day or having to remember to do them. I'll take something that simulates kegels any day than having to remember to do them.

According to research, strong pelvic muscles not only add more bladder control when laughing, sneezing, coughing, and doing vigorous exercises, but these muscles also increase the intensity of your orgasm. I have had two children in the last five years vaginally so I know I can use all the help I can to obtain stronger pc muscles so I do not accidentally pee my pants from the aforementioned activities. I don't really like the idea of being thirty and having to wear Depends quite yet so I've made it my priority to strengthen my pc muscles before this becomes an issue.

Improved results should be seen over a long period of frequent use with Intensity and shouldn't be expected to happen overnight.

There are several warnings and safety precautions that are included with the Intensity. You should not use the Intensity if you are pregnant, have a pacemaker, or defibrillator. Also, do not use the Intensity on infected or irritated skin. Jopen recommends to fully insert the Intensity and inflate it if you desire before turning it on. Also, make sure to turn it completely off before you remove it. Whatever you do, make sure to only use this vaginally because it is not made for anal purposes. Also, the Intensity is not waterproof so do not immerse this in the water.

I recommend this to anyone who like me forgets to do their kegel exercises regularly and wants something to do the exercises for them. I think it is overpriced for those who already have strong kegels or those who do some other form of exercises with other items.

Material / Texture

The majority of the Intensity is made out of smooth, soft, velvety, body-safe, medical grade silicone. Silicone is one of the safest product materials on the market and is considered a 10 on the safety scale because it isn't porous and won't harbor bacteria. It is also made out of food-grade material, is phthalate free, latex free, and hypoallergenic. The electrostimulation plates are made out of stainless steel which also rates a 10 on the safety scale. The black push button for the inflation release and the light purple battery cap are both made of ABS plastic which is considered an 8 on the safety scale. The handle is also made with ABS plastic, but Jopen covered it with a layer of silicone.

As far as texture goes, the Intensity is smooth. There are five raised button controls on top of the handle that makes using the controls very easy to find just by your sense of touch. The handle is very firm and does not have any give to it at all. The underside of the handle is where the inflation device is located and it is very squishy to allow for pumping.



The shaft is very similar to an accordian where it has ridges along the shaft and is hollow in places. This accordian style allows the user to inflate the Intensity to their desired girth enabling this product to fit a wider range of users. I prefer my toys to be thin so I do not use this feature. I cannot feel the texture in the accordian at all while inserted, and if you inflated it the indentations disappear.



There is also a large, firm, oval g-spot bump on the front of the shaft directly under the first electrical plate. This is where the internal vibrator is located and on mine, you can see the wires at the thinner silicone area directly under the shaft.

The clitoral arm is flexible and can be moved with your fingers for about 360 degrees all around. It is also firm where the bullet is located.

There are a few visible seams along the Intensity but they are not something that can be felt while in use. There is a vertical seam that runs the length of the toy, up the clitoral arm, and up the shaft. There is also a horizontal seam where the shaft and handle meet.

Overall, it is ideal for those who prefer smooth toys because there is no added texture anywhere and the accordian style seams can not be felt while inserted.

Design / Shape / Size

I'm not a fan of the color of pink at all, but unfortunately I had no choice of color with the Intensity. As far as pinks go, the Intensity's pink is not bad. It is a soft pink that almost looks more purple instead of pink which I really prefer over the color that is depicted on the product page.

The overall length of Intensity is 12" long, but it has an insertable length of 5 1/4". The product page mentions the insertable length at being 5 3/4", but that is just not the case with mine. I found it to be the same exact size as the length of my arm from my elbow to the base of my hand.



The clitoral arm is 3 1/2" long. While it is not inflated, the Intensity measures 4 1/2" around, but it can be inflated to accomodate up to 6 1/2" around. Again, I prefer smaller toys, so I do not inflate this.



I am not a fan of rabbit style vibrators, and I know that all womens anatomys are different so my results may not be the same as yours. With that being said, the clitoral arm did not work for me. If I fully inserted the shaft the clitoral arm would be above my clitoris. I could not move the shaft down lower to reach my clitoris while in use because of the metal contacts. I just never used this feature beyond the testing phase. I wish they had an option to buy the Intensity with and without a clitoral arm, because I would rather have a version without.

I wouldn't recommend traveling with this because it is very bulky and quite expensive, but if you desire to travel with it, be sure to remove the batteries before you go so it doesn't accidentally get turned on during your travels.

Although the Intensity doesn't have a phallic shape, the clitoral arm does look like what you see on rabbit vibrators so I would not consider this to be the most discreet toy and would recommend keeping it put away unless you like for curious company to ask what your items are.

Performance

There are three areas that the Intensity uses if you choose to use the inflation ability. The inflation area is located at the curve of the base and is very easy to pump and use. The black deflation button is located up above the inflation pump and is very easy to press. When pressed, all the air comes out of a small hole underneath the inflation area and right above the battery cap. When the air escapes it reminds me of a public transportation bus stopping.



There are five total controls located on the base of the handle. The left buttons control the vibrations (V) and the right buttons control the electrostimulation (S). Both the vibration level and stimulation levels have up and down buttons to increase or decrease the power of your vibrations or electrostimulation. The last control is the on off button. To use, turn on the on off button and go through the stimulation or vibration modes.



To control the vibrations, use the up and down arrows to find the speed that you like. Personally, I could not feel the vibrations on the shaft when inserted, but could slightly feel them in my hand. I feel the vibration levels most at the clitoral arm. There are a total of five vibration levels for the clitoral attachment and no pulsation patterns. I prefer this actually because I find that pulsation patterns distract me. The vibrations are quite buzzy and I do not like this at all. I prefer my vibrations to be focused deeper instead of on the surface. The intensity of the vibrations start off weak and gradually progress to be stronger and stronger with the final level being a low 4 vroom overall. I was not able to achieve satisfaction from the clitoral arm because the vibrations were not strong enough for me and were not the right kind of vibration that my body prefers.

The first level starts off very quite, but as you progress through the levels the louder it gets. At the highest setting I would not consider this to be discreet at all. You can hear it through a door and would need some form of background noise to cover up what you were doing.

There are ten levels of electrostimulation; I suggest to start off slow and gradually work yourself up to where you are comfortable. My husband called me an overachiever because I generally use this on level 10 and started off using it on level 10 on day one. However, I have a VERY high pain tolerance so this will not be the case for everyone. I've noticed that the closer it is to the inside of my vagina, the more it hurts, but if the shaft is pushed all the way in I do not feel it as much. When it is pushed all the way in, it makes my butt feel like it is being tickled. I cannot really feel the electrostimulation unless it is at level seven or higher. Level 1 I cannot feel anything at all. Level two is a light flutter, levels three through six is where it starts to become a little bit stronger, but levels seven through ten is where I can notice it. The electrostimulation never gave me an orgasm, but level four is about the same intensity I feel when I have a clitoral orgasm. I have not experience a vaginal orgasm so I cannot compare how that feels with what I feel with the Intensity.

To control the electrostimulation, there is again up and down arrows to increase and decrease the level you are on. There is also a red LED control in between the V and S that features what level you are on. The even numbers are glow a steady red (1,3,5,7,9) and the odd numbers blink a steady red (2,4,6,8,10).

The Intensity uses four AAA batteries that were not included. The battery cap is located at the bottom of the base and is a screw on-off cap that is easy to get on and off.



I've been using the electrostimulation part for a month now, and have not had to replace my batteries. I imagine your results would vary depending on if you use the clitoral arm or not. It is estimated that they have a battery life of 8.5 hours but again that will vary by each user.

Care and Maintenance

I've found the easiest way to clean the Intensity is to fully inflate it and wipe it down with toy wipes. I don't particularly like the idea of cleaning up and down each individual accordian pleat of the shaft so this is how I clean mine. It is not waterproof so do not immerse it in water, but you could wash it with warm water on a hand towel if you wish.

You can store this in the original box or wherever you store your other toys. However, I don't store mine in its original box because the box has foam that the Intensity was stored safely in and the foam gets all over the Intensity. I just keep mine in my lingerie drawer with all of my other toys that I use on a regular basis.

The Intensity is made of silicone so it is best to use only water based lubricants with this product.

Packaging

The Intensity arrives as a box inside another box. The first box is quite attractive, but not discreet. It has Intensity written on the front and shows the intensity on the back along with information about the product. The second box is more discreet and is a nice rich, dark purple. Inside the dark purple box is a foam cutout for the Intensity and the electrode gel. It also has a short instruction manual regarding the product.



Personal comments

The ingredients of the electrode gel are as follows:

Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water

Humectant Polymers (acrylic acid/cellulose polymer)

Propylparaben

Methylparaben

FD&C Blue #1

FD&C Yellow #5

I prefer not using items with parabens so I have not used this product and my experience with the Intensity is based off of not using it.

Experience

I bought this as a discounted assignment, and wanted to give this an accurate testing period before writing the review. I wanted to be able to definitively say whether or not this strengthened my kegel muscles and if I could notice any results. I have had this product almost for a month now, and can honestly say I have noticed some strengthening of my kegel muscles. I do not have dramatic results where I'm achieving orgasm from using this product, but I don't have to worry about leaking when I sneeze which is the main reason I wanted to get this product. I knew after having two kids vaginally and never doing kegel exercises that I could use some help in the tightening department. My husband has not been able to tell a difference as far as sexual encounters go, but I didn't buy this for that purpose. I bought this for my own personal health benefits, and from that standpoint I must say that this works marvelously. Now you're thinking, would you spend this amount again if given the chance and my answer would be no for a few reasons. First, the attached rabbit clitoral feature does not fit my anatomy properly. Once I adjust it to reach my clitoris, the vibrations are too weak for my taste. I would prefer that it did not have the rabbit feature on this toy at all because I do not use it and find that it gets in the way. Second, I think there are other options out there that can strengthen your kegel muscles for a much smaller price such as Kegelcisor, Ami, and theLuna Beads
