Proud and too loud

This is a great toy in terms of shape, size and length and I love the pop of colour it gives my toy box. Unfortunately it loses most of its value with its weak vibrations, noise level, and poor controls. Personally, the texture has been a turn off for me but as a beginner toy it would work fine and provide new toy users with a glimpse of what is out there.

Use

This is a simple, slim vibrator. There is nothing fancy, besides the colour and what I would consider limited functions. There are 3 levels of intensity, with the first level being a very soft vibration, going up with a big jump to the highest level that is still not a strong buzz. I am someone that loves a good buzz and this just didn't do it for me.

The vibe can be inserted vaginally or used to tease and situmlate the anus. Don't insert toys without a flared base anally. Though, given the texture of this toy, I would suggest a GOOD cleaning after using it anally. It can also be used all over the body like on the breasts and stomach. Whatever tickles your fancy. I did love having it run over my breasts and nipples after my husband tied me to the bed. More on that later.

It isn't a toy I can imagine many "serious" toy enthusiast owning. It would make a great first toy, especially with the price. Get the pink one and it becomes a funny bachelorette party toy.

It claims to be waterproof, though the cap and battery don't have as tight of a fit as I would like in a waterproof toy. I only take it near water to clean it. I am not comfortable with submerging it.

It's powered by a single AA battery. Nothing too strong or I would worry about burning out the motor since it is only a cheap toy. The loose fit of the battery is what I think makes the toy so noisy.

I wouldn't consider this extremely travel friendly, as it is quite obvious what it is. The button isn't overly sensitive so it isn't going to turn on while it rolls around in your luggage. However, I would still take the batteries out if you intended on travelling with it. Roll it up in a shirt and put it in your checked luggage.

Material / Texture

There is no smell or taste to the toy, so there was no issue when my husband decided to have me suck it while I was tied to our bed, but the texture is a big issue for me. When I first opened it, it had an irritating texture in my hand. I can only describe it as a smooth matte texture. It feels dry against my skin and makes me think that having it inside me will dry me out. That's not something I want in any sexual situations. I haven't had a problem with it drying me out; I just find the texture a turn off.

This is PU coated plastic and has a material safety rating of 7 but as always if you are sharing, USE A CONDOM! It is latex and phthalates free so it is safe for people who have skin allergies and conditions. As always make sure to clean toys after every use. This vibe can be cleaned with warm water and a mild soap or toy cleaner. It can be used with water based and silicone based lubricants.

Design / Shape / Size

This is what I would consider a slim, pencil-shaped vibrator. It's slimmer than any other toy I have used before, but that didn't stop me from feeling it on all sides when I used it. It has a circumference of 3 1/4 inches (8.25 cm for the metric) and the diameter is 1". It’s a light toy coming in at 0.2 pounds. In total the toy measures 6 3/4 inches long but has an insertable length of 4 1/4 inches.



What I love most about the design of this toy is the shape. There are no bumps, ridges, wider sections, heads or bulges. It would be a great toy to slowly thrust while my husband goes down on me, but the noise makes this a little difficult.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This is a simple multispeed vibrator with a "click through" button system. I didn't like it, and my husband prefers the dial base of the other vibrator I reviewed. There is nothing wrong with the construction of the button and my husband reckons that for a waterproof toy, it’s a better system than the dial base.



It is a functional toy. It does what it says it will, maybe just not as well as it claims. It does have a strong buzz, but nothing like what the marketing claims. The noise that the highest setting makes puts me off using it at that level, so I am stuck with the lowest level. However, the lowest level is nowhere near enough buzz to give me my "buzz."
    • Easy to use
    • Not discreet at all
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

This is a PU coated plastic toy and can be washed with soap and warm water. As it is a waterproof vibe, you will be safe using it under running water to clean it. Use a sensitive soap if you have skin allergies and conditions.

The texture makes me think it might mark or scratch easily if it was left to roll around in your toy box. It doesn't come with any kind of storage pouch, but if you have a sewing machine it wouldn't take much to do up.

My husband gave the connections a good inspection and mentioned to be gentle when inserting and removing the battery to keep the connections in place. This will ensure that your Rush never loses its buzz.
    • Easy to clean

Packaging

It is in standard cheap toy packaging with a clam shell plastic case. It is not recyclable but has a cardboard insert which is recyclable. It's tacky in all of its forms from the white background and 80's font and logo to the cheesy girl in a pushed up tank top on the front. There are basic instructions on how to put in the battery and the back cover simply lists the features of the toy in different languages.

It would work for extended storage, but unlike other toys I own I am not too worried about this one collecting lint as much as getting scratched and marked.

Personal comments

Even as I write this review, the texture is growing on me but it won’t change my rating, though, as the noise and the weakness of the vibrations let me down too much. As other reviewers have mentioned, trimming the battery instruction paper and wrapping it around the battery can quiet the toy a little. By simply changing the battery insert to be a little tighter, it should eliminate most of the noise anyway. It would also make me more comfortable with using it around water.

Experience

As with all toys I buy or receive, I have a few ways I like to use them before writing the review - by myself, with my husband and while my husband is asleep next to me.

When the toy arrived I went straight to the "by myself" situation and immediately knew it was going to be too loud for the "while my husband is asleep" situation. The vibrations were too weak, even on the highest setting to get me there with just the toy alone. A bit of thrusting, rubbing and extra (finger) stimulation, I got there in the end.

The next time I used it, my husband decided it had been a while since he had tied me down and that testing the new toy was a great time to bring the leather tie-down straps out again. He basically used the toy all over my body. With the two of us playing, the noise wasn't as big an issue as it was when playing solo but was still quite distracting.

The "while my husband is asleep" situation wasn't even worth trying; the toy is way too loud for me to relax enough to orgasm as I am too worried it would wake my husband.

    Thanks for sharing! As a reminder, toys without flared bases should not be inserted anally, as you could end up with a very embarrassing hospital visit!
