Stayin' Alive, but barely.The Bgee left me disappointed. The vibrations are weak, the batteries rattle around during use, and the head was a little too narrow.
The first thing I noticed when I put the batteries in (2 AAA, which should have been my first warning sign that the toy wasn't going to be particularly effective for me) was that the normal vibration noise was accompanied by the rattling sound of knocked-around batteries. I use rechargeable batteries, so maybe this isn't a problem with regular batteries, but it was really loud (as you can hear from the video). My other major problem was with the vibrations themselves: they're not all that strong. They're about as strong as one can expect from 2 AAA batteries. So if you find other toys with AAA batteries too weak, give this one a pass.
The other complaint I had about the Bgee was that the head is so slender. The narrowness of the whole toy would make it great for someone just starting out with penetrative toys, but for me the narrow head does not make for effective g-spotting, which is what the Bgee is supposed to be about. I like to stimulate a wider area, and I would especially want to do so if I were trying to find my g-spot. The slender profile makes it difficult if you don't already know exactly where it is.
Care and feeding of the Bgee is relatively straightforward: it's plastic, so it can't be sterilized, but you can clean it with antibacterial soap and water. Since it's not sterilizable, don't share it with anyone you're not fluid-bonded with. You can use any kind of lube you want with it, but since it's so thin you're unlikely to need much. The storage pouch that comes with the toy is thick enough to protect the Bgee from getting jostled around, even if it is an odd size (not quite long enough and way too wide for the toy).
In the end, the Bgee was nice for warm-up and teasing and the noise didn't bother me too much since I live alone. But if you need your toys to be quiet or you need more punch than AAA batteries can give, you're going to want to look elsewhere. I would recommend the Bgee to someone new to penetration (because of the thinness of the shaft/head), but not necessarily someone going g-spot hunting (for the same reason). The Bgee frustrated me a little. It has a sleek design that I really wanted to love, but couldn't.
