Pump it (louder!)

This is an interesting toy to get you started, but I'm not sure if it can finish the job. The suction really wasn't enough to do more than get me wet, but if you're looking for foreplay, definitely give it a try.

Use

I was slightly confused by the concept of "clitoral penetration" when I signed up for this toy. How does one penetrate a clitoris, exactly? I'm pretty sure there's not an innie/outie thing with clits, after all. I'm still unsure what, exactly, you're supposed to penetrate, but when using the pump, I found it interesting to play with the little "slide" feature, pushing the penetrator against my clit. The penetrator isn't long enough for true vaginal penetration, but it was certainly interesting to try!

This is definitely a toy for everyone; it's not hard to figure out, and it isn't rocket science to use. If you're easily amused, I wouldn't suggest using it with a partner (using the slide feature and making a sucking sound against your vagina probably would kill the mood), but otherwise, it's a fantastic warm-up toy; the suction is just enough to get you started.

Material / Texture

The pump is TPR silicone, so it's hypo-allergenic and free of all sorts of nasty chemicals that you probably don't want near your personal area! There was no smell when I opened it, and the fact that the suction cup is SOFT was a godsend. I have another suction toy that was very painful to use, and while I deeply enjoy the concept of suction, I'm not willing to put a dent in my vagina to get it. The penetrator has tiny nubs for your personal satisfaction; they were a LOT of fun to play with!

Design / Shape / Size

I had a bit of a problem with the sliding function and the suction when using this toy. As I said, I couldn't quite figure out what I was supposed to be penetrating, and if you push the penetrator out too far, you lose suction, if your anatomy is anything like mine! It made for a very sloppy, wet sound that was distracting, so I found a position for the vibrating penetrator that I liked and kept it there.

Unless I'm missing something, you can only squeeze the pump once, unless you want to repeatedly squeeze and release; I felt as if more suction could have been a wonderful thing, and I'm thinking about trying to modify the toy so that I can create more suction (any ideas?). It's a pretty good size for clitoral stimulation, but your mileage may vary.
    • Beginner
    • Partner play

Functions / Performance / Controls

The power is controlled by a switch that was very easy to use; the penetrator is small enough that the vibrations are carried easily throughout. The suction left something to be desired, but repeated suction/release action really fit the bill! I found that I was unable to really enjoy the toy if I held it still so that the penetrator could reach my clitoris, so if you're looking for a sit-back-and-relax experience, this one probably isn't for you.
    • Easy to use
    • Not enough variety

Care and Maintenance

This seems like a fairly high-maintenance toy to me, if only because of the nubs and suction cup. Lube and other liquids (ahem) could very easily get trapped around the base of the penetrator; you really have to get in the suction cup and scrub to make sure that it gets clean. It's compatible with lube, but the inside will get sticky very fast if you don't clean it properly.
    • Hard to clean
    • High maintenance
Follow-up commentary
It was fun to play with, but it just didn't do it for me. It's great for teasing, but I still think you'll need something else to finish the job!

    I'm still confused. I have no idea what this toy does. I have no idea what
    penetration it provides, I'm not even sure what you do with it, how many pumps you can use, what kind of stimulation it provides etc.

    More detail on HOW to use the toy, for most of us who don't own it would really be helpful. As would cleaning instructions, lube compatibility and general information on HOW to use the toy.

    I'm more confused than when I first saw the toy.

    @P'Gell - That's part of what I wrote about, actually. I couldn't figure out what you were supposed to penetrate! Here's some highlights I copy/pasted from the review for you:

    --I'm still unsure what, exactly, you're supposed to penetrate, but when using the pump, I found it interesting to play with the little "slide" feature, pushing the penetrator against my clit.
    --Unless I'm missing something, you can only squeeze the pump once
    --This seems like a fairly high-maintenance toy to me, if only because of the nubs and suction cup. Lube and other liquids (ahem) could very easily get trapped around the base of the penetrator; you really have to get in the suction cup and scrub to make sure that it gets clean. It's compatible with lube, but the inside will get sticky very fast if you don't clean it properly.

    So I did answer your questions.

    @Upskirt - Frankly, so am I. I don't understand the "penetration" thing at all. I mean, I suppose you can put the penetrator inside of you, but then it won't reach your clit, so I assume that you're supposed to just PRESS the penetrator against your clit, rather than penetrating anything at all. I think it's a terrible name for this toy, really.

    I think "penetration" may be the wrong word for what that nubby thing does.
