Pick of the QuiverI think the Cupid is definitely worth it, above all, for the bang you get for your buck. It's a great little toy that's not "cheap," but definitely won't break the bank.
The shape, size, and design of the cupid were great for beginning penetrative play.
Vibrations are a little on the weak side, may not be girthy or lengthy enough.
When I received this vibe, my immediate thought was "how pretty!" And indeed, this vibrator is extremely pretty. The color, in person, is very true to the picture- a soft lavender color that's extremely aesthetically pleasing. The raised vines and flowers provide incredible stimulation, both vaginal and clitoral. My favorite way to use this particular vibe is actually vaginally. It's a nice size and it has a perfect amount of "give" to it. For me, personally, the vibrations aren't strong enough to bring me to a clitoral orgasm but it's a nice amount for teasing either solo or with a partner. Vaginally though, wow! Those pretty raised vines and flowers are amazing texture wise, and the length and girth are the perfect. The curves on the shaft also provide a nice amount of g-spot stimulation. The battery life of the Cupid is also surprisingly long. It's also a nice, quiet little toy, and packs a lot of punch for being so quiet. Perfect for use in a crowded dorm building! All in all, the Cupid is an incredible vibrator, perfect for yourself or as a gift for a special friend or bride to be.
The material of the Cupid is made out of TPR silicone, an incredibly safe material which also feels GREAT! It's just firm enough to provide really great stimulation (I even found it firm enough for g-spot stimulation) yet soft enough to be gentle on the clitoris and labia. The silicone is also really, really incredibly soft to the touch. The texture is also out of this world, with raised vines and flowers providing a veiny sort of stimulation. The design of the texturing is also good for those who want the feel of a "realistic penis" dildo without the overtly phallic look. The smell is also completely neutral, with no bad, harsh, "plastic-y" scents. The taste is neutral also, it has no sort of bad plastic taste.
The design of the Cupid, in my opinion, is absolutely fabulous. I love the bumps and curves of this toy! The veins and curves add an insane amount of texture and variation to the Cupid's overall design, and add a lot of stimulation to what otherwise might be a "boring" toy. The size of the toy is good for beginners but people accustomed to more girth or weight may find it lacking. Surprisingly enough, I've found that the batteries are what add a lot of weight, so if you're using it vaginally, try putting the batteries in to add a little bit more of a feel of "weightiness." The Cupid is easy to hide and the color makes it easy for it to blend into a panty or lingerie drawer. However, no matter how "pretty" it is, the shape is decidedly phallic, so it's pretty unmistakable if just left out in the open. I've traveled with this toy before and faced no issues. Just wrap it in a pair of panties (be prepared to wash some cotton off, though) and go!
The Cupid is controlled by a simple twist knob at the base of the toy (your standard low to high twist). Admittedly, it can be a little hard to control if your fingers are slippery, but it is textured enough so you can get a good grip on it most of the time. The vibrations aren't out of this world strong, but certainly enough to climax if you're more sensitive clitorally. Used vaginally, the vibrations really aren't enough to stimulate the g-spot, but if used without the vibrations for thrusting, it really can be quite pleasing!
Being made out of silicone, the Cupid is easy to clean and store. Since it has a vibrating function and battery housing unit, you can't boil it to sterilize it, but I've found that gentle cleaner and hot water is all I need to keep the Cupid clean. Being silicone, it has a propensity to attract "fuzzies," so if you store it in a panty drawer like I do, you might occasionally have to pick off a few fuzzballs, but that's it.
The packaging was actually quite simple and pleasing, with no overtly pornographic images or wording. It came in a plain box, with wording and a clear window so as to see the Cupid inside the box. There was also a bit of bungled English on the box, which was amusing but not confusing. The packaging couldn't be used as a gift box, in my opinion, but I don't see why you couldn't store it in the original box if that's what you desired. However, I recycled it instead of keeping it.
This was the first silicone penetrative toy that I ever used, and wow! What an introduction! Even though I've since "graduated" to bigger, more realistic toys, this little vibe was quite the introduction to playing with penetration. The curves, swirls, and raised bumps of the Cupid were, I believe, essential in introducing me to g-spot play. While the vibrations weren't intense enough for me to climax clitorally, the Cupid turned out to be quite the nice penetrative toy.
Follow-up commentary 14 months after original review
While I honestly hadn't touched this little toy in forever, I pulled it out today and remembered why I found it so appealing. While I still didn't like it for the vibrating aspect, it's still a really nice little beginners dildo. This was my venture into penetrating play, and it was a very nice introductory toy; much less threatening than the large, realistic-looking dildos I had seen before. This little toy isn't gonna knock the socks off of anyone who's very experienced with toying, but it's still one of the better ones in my box.
