extremely useful review


This is by far one of the most discreet vibes I've ever seen/used. It's not super-charged with tons of power, but it's pinpointed vibrations deliver the power right where you want it! This is perfect for someone who wants one of the most discreet toys you can imagine. At a glance, this truly looks like a regular pen. Add the textured sleeve and you have a nicely textured vibe that is similar to a bullet. And for those really curious and nosy people, this thing actually writes! It's really a pen with a vibrator at the top! This is great for any small areas in need of stimulation and can even be used as a penetration device! Don't expect extreme girth from the internal use as this is the size of a real pen!

Material / Texture

The pen is a simple plastic and is easy to clean and odor-free. The plastic is also great for focusing vibration in a specific area (clit, nipples, etc.) and easy storage for home or travel! Along with this is a textured sleeve covered in nubs and made of TPR silicone (not to be confused with pure silicone) which slips on and off for easy storage and clean-up. The sleeve has a slight odor, but nothing that is bothersome and the texture is divine when used on the clitoris. Plus this product is phthalates free and hypo-allergenic!

Design / Shape / Size

The design of this toy is genius as it is the size of a standard pen and actually writes! I believe the writing function is mostly novelty, as upon close inspection you can see the on/off writing and the Berman symbol on the pen itself. However, in a purse or luggage this looks like a standard pen. And of course it will look suspicious with the sleeve on! But this is a great design overall and is super easy to hide and travel with. Don't expect something filling as it's thin and doesn't supply the girth some women look for. Remember, this thing is for people who need a discreet product. Not someone looking for a boxed Tower of Pisa. That said, the vibrator acts much like a bullet with pinpointed vibrations.
The sleeve adds a nice textured effect and slips on and off easily for cleaning or varied use. I think this is suitable for anyone who wants something small, that doesn't LOOK like a sex toy and that is easy to hide and maintain.

Functions / Performance / Controls

As it runs on four watch batteries, don't expect this product to be super strong. I felt the vibrations were more than strong enough for me and are most likely suitable for most people. Sadly, the batteries wore out after 3 uses and I felt frustrated having to replace them so often. But this is a durable product that once again is small in size, so it would be difficult to fit another battery in and still maintain the discreet design. This I completely understand. The vibrations seem to be in the tip mostly and are moderate in intensity. It's easy to operate by twisting the top and creates almost no noise at all. It's not waterproof, so no playing with it in the tub like I know we all wanted to. And don't look for varied speeds in this product as it simply turns on and off.

Care and Maintenance

The vibrator is simple to clean, being plastic. Warm water and soap or toy cleaner does the trick. Do keep in mind if you use this for insertion that there is no way to completely sanitize this toy! As always condoms are recommended for toys of this nature. However, it is a bit difficult to keep a condom on this toy. It may be best to just avoid sharing at all. The sleeve does attract dust, so be sure to clean it really well with soap or toy cleaner and warm water and to get those little areas between the nubs nice and clean. You can use the pen with any lubricant you like, but the sleeve should only be used with water-based lubricant. As far as storage goes, it comes in a nifty little mesh bag for storage and this suits it just fine. The TRP silicone sleeve cannot be placed with other reactive materials such as jelly or other silicons and soft plastics.

Personal comments

I generally liked this product as a discreet item. Being as I don't really need to be discreet most of the time, it's good to have on hand. That said, I don't reach for it at home and I don't use it much. The batteries drain too quickly and the design doesn't always suit my needs. This is perfect for it's intended purpose (a discreet massager) and with that in mind it's a great, quality product.
Follow-up commentary
Although I don't use this too often, I still like it. I think I may just save it for travel times. It's just that I haven't really needed anything this discreet as of late. It's a great product and still works well. I did find I like it more without the extra sleeve that you can put on it. I still use it sometimes, but it's just not as easy to clean. It's more of a convenience thing. That said, the sleeve feels wonderful. Again, I still like this product, I just don't seem to use it that much. It's fantastic for travel and I'd still suggest it as a discreet product.
