Shock Those Kegels Into ShapeThe Intensity is a high end fancy medical device turned sex toy that is used to do your kegels for you. The metal plates on the shaft provide electro stimulation to the inside of your vagina. The shaft can be inflated to the desirable circumference. And there is even a clitoral arm for added pleasure.
You should be sure to read the directions of how this is recommended to be used. The first step is to apply a compatible lube to yourself, then apply the electro glide gel to the metal plates, insert and inflate to desirable size, and then turn on the functions. Be sure to shut off the functions before removing. I am not sure if there is a risk of not following these directions, but I figure best to be safe than sorry when messing with shock therapy in your vagina. There are also other precautions to take with this toy.
*Don't use if you are pregnant.
*Don't use if you have a pacemaker.
*Don't use on irritated or infected skin.
*Don't use anally or orally.
*Don't get Intensity wet.
The texture varies depending on whether or not you inflate the shaft. The more the shaft in blown up, the less texture there is. The texture that is there is ripples similar to accordion with a bump on the front of the shaft to hit the G-spot. These are less prominent when the shaft is blown up all the way, but these don't add to anything. The metal plates are not felt either, since they are flat on the shaft. The clitoral arm has three nubs to lightly tease the clitoris, these are flexible.
The intensity starts off as a 5" shaft that is designed like an accordion, so it can be inflated. These ripples can collect juices. There are two stainless steel plates located 1" down that are 1.5" long and 0.75" wide. There is one on the front of the shaft and one on the back of the shaft. The shaft is slightly rounded, but not enough for easy insertion. Under the plate on the front is a 1.5" long bump that is for the G-spot. The shaft is attached to a decent sized base. The base is 7" long itself. It is an awkward shape that I find hard to describe. It looks like a bubbly letter L with a cutesy curl at the bottom. Right under the shaft is the attached 2.75" clitoral arm, which is a rabbit. The rabbit has two ears and a tongue sticking out? I am not sure what the third nub is suppose to be, but I like the tongue sticking out, so that is what I am sticking with. The outside of the bend of the L is an air pocket with a hole on the bottom. This is were you pump to get the shaft to inflate. Rightly above this air pocket is a black button, this is to release the air. In the center of the cutesy curl of the L is a twist cap, which twist out to reveal the battery unit. This curve/curl also comes in handy for hand placement. One the front below the clitoral arm are 5 buttons to control the functions of the Intensity. Then there is an impression on the Intensity marking it with "Intensity by Jopen.
I would only travel with the Intensity in the box it came in. It is awkward to store due to its shape and size. The size is adjustable to your desire, so it ca be enjoyed by all.
There are 5 buttons total. The first is lonely at the top of them and labeled with a Q. This is the power button, but all it does it turn on/off the device, which also turns on the red lights. The left side are two buttons marked with up/down arrows and an S in the middle. These are to control the electro stimulation. And on the right side are two buttons marked with up/down arrows and a V in the middle. These are to control the clitoral arms vibrations.
I have only used the vibrations a handful of times, because I wanted to know what the shocking felt like. I was slightly confused at first because I thought the up arrow would make the vibrations turn on, but it is the down arrow. There are 5 steady vibration settings. These vibrations are buzzy and not the strongest, but they are not the weakest. I say 4 vrooms. They are not really that loud, not like massagers, but louder than quiet. They could be heard with no back ground noise, but with some TV you should be able to hide the use.
The electro stimulation is something truly unique, but doesn't work for everyone. If you were to put your hands on the stainless steel pieces while the device was on, it would remind you of those gag items that shock you when you touch them. But inside the vagina is a different story. They contract the muscles in the vagina like you are having an orgasm over and over again, but sometimes this feels similar to braxton hicks contractions. There are 10 levels of shocking. I am only currently at 7. You should build yourself up to the shocking and take things slow, but if you can't feel that level go ahead and go up. The shocking is silent and even on the highest setting.
You should keep intensity stored in the box it came in and along with your other toys.
Silicone is compatible with water based lubes. I advise against silicone based lubes, since they could damage the silicone and this product is expensive to replace.

The gel comes out with a slight blue color. It is not sticky. It is very similar feeling to hair gel. I am not sure what I am going to do when it runs out, but I will think of something.
Now down to the main question, is it worth its price tag? I have to answer this question honestly, yes. I do think that $250.00 is too much for a toy, but it is a device designed to do exercise for you. You pay $300 or more for a treadmill, so why not a toy that exercises your kegels?
