One sleek, sensual rideI love the versatility of this toy! The curved tip can be laid along the clitoris for mind-blowing orgasms or run over the shaft of the penis for some toe-curling fun. Internally, this little baby hits the G-spot with unerring accuracy. Although it is a little noisy and the controls can be annoying, at $25 the Silky G is a great deal.
Whether solo or with a partner, the Silky G is fun for all. This little beauty is waterproof, which makes it ideal for shower or tub play. The compact design of the Silky G can easily fit between two thrusting bodies. Since the vibrator is compact, it is also compatible with discreet travel. Be careful when squishing between bodies, though - this is a rigid toy, so there is the potential for painful grinding against pubic bones.
Even fresh from the original package, there was no discernible odor to this toy, or any unpleasant taste. After repeated use and cleaning the toy is still taste and odor free.
EdenFantasys lists the material in this toy as plastic. According to the Evolved Novelties website, all Evolved products a phthalates- and latex-free. I was not able to find additional material information on the Evolved Novelties website, so if you have allergies to certain compounds please try contacting Evolved Novelties.
There are two circular "bulges" below the curved tip. The first is about an inch in diameter, the second approximately one and a quarter (1.25) inches in diameter. There is a narrower waist between the two. Together, these features form an hourglass silhouette that, during insertion, feels fantastic! The Silky-G is small, no wider than 1.25" at the widest point. This makes it ideal for beginners, people who usually avoid penetration, and - well, pretty much anyone! Just don't expect a mind-blowing sense of fullness when inserting the Silky-G.
I'm a huge fan of the Silky G's shape. I typically don't use toys for insertion when masturbating; I much prefer clitoral stimulation. The Silky G is one of the few exceptions for me. The curved tip hits my G-spot wonderfully! And, thanks to the bulges on the shaft, there is still a sensation of friction even when slicked with plenty of lubricant (natural, water-based, or silicone).
The vibrator has about six inches of insertable length, with roughly another inch and a half devoted to the end cap. Since this toy is slim and not exceedingly long, it is easy to store in a purse, travel bag, suitcase, etc. Make sure to remove the batteries prior to storage. The controls are at the end of the toy and even a slight nudge against the bottom will cause it to buzz away.
Annoyingly, the control button is situated at the very bottom of the toy. The button is very sensitive - a slight nudge can set the Silky G a'buzzing. And buzz it does! At the low setting, it's audible from across the room. On high, you can hear it clearly even through a door. The sound can be muffled significantly by covers. Even without covers the buzz probably wouldn't be distinguishable from, say, music playing in the background, but if the G is the only noise maker in the room people nearby will hear it. Mix that with the overly sensitive control button, and you've got a potentially embarrassing situation on your hands. Unless you want roommates or partners to go searching for that strange buzzing noise when you're not home, make sure you take out the batteries after you're done using the vibrator.
The Silky G is waterproof. I've never fully submerged this vibrator in water, but it performed just fine in the shower and in the tub (with only about 3.5" submerged). As with any waterproof vibrator, never forget that the toy is not actually waterproof until it is turned ON! The vibrations form the waterproof seal that will keep your toys safe and functional.
The Silky G is pretty simple to clean. Use an antibacterial toy cleaner, rinse with water, and dry with a soft cloth. Since it is waterproof, you can completely submerge the Silky G while washing it. Just remember, as always, that waterproof vibrators are only completely waterproof while they are on! Make sure you have the G on at least the low setting before submerging. I garnered this tip from a sex educator friend of mine, and representatives from two different home novelties companies confirmed it (Pure Romance and Athena's Home Novelties). While most waterproof toys aren't going to short out immediately, in the long run dipping in water/washing without the toy on can result in small amounts of liquid seeping in the battery casing. The vibrations cause the seal to expand and render the toy truly waterproof. Otherwise it's just -mostly- water safe (according to my sources, at least!).
After cleaning, twist off the end cap and remove the batteries. The control button for the G is rather sensitive and can be set off by a slight tap. To avoid any embarrassing scavenger hunts by friends and roomies, take out the batteries and store them next to the toy. The compact nature of the G makes it easy to store in a bedside drawer or toy box.
The beautiful packaging was the first thing that caught my eye. That particular store had just started carrying Evolved products. I'd never seen the gorgeous metal tins that Evolved products come in. I'm a lover of metal. The tasteful shelf display and the luxe appearance of the products lent an aura of classiness and indulgence that you typically don't encounter with $25 toys.
I agonized for ten or more minutes about which toy to buy - they all looked so fantastic! I eventually settled on the Silky G because of the shape: I could easily envision lying the curve along my clitoris, tickling my G-spot with it, or torturing my partner with teasing caresses of the tip.
The saleswoman popped the batteries in and let me hear/feel the vibrations before I purchased it, so I knew exactly what I was getting into, noise-wise. At the time I lived in an apartment with 3 friends and was very conscious of the need for discretion. The G wasn't so loud that I thought my roommates would hear, and the feel, look, and design won me over. I scurried from the store with my prize in hand, eager to give it a whirl. And what a whirl it was! Two years later, the Silky G is still in wonderful, working condition. There's been no discernible change since the day I purchased it.
I find stimulating areas with the tip is the most effective means of achieving pleasure with the Silky G. It feels amazing on my clitoris and my lover really enjoys the feeling of it on his shaft. This is definitely a couple-friendly vibrator and great for internal and external use. I recommend it for first time and experienced users alike!
