The Bong ShowI would really recommend this toy. It's small and so quiet nobody will know when you sneak off to enjoy it. As a "clit girl".. what? guys can be "boob men", I loved that I had maneuverability in the palm of my hand with this toy. I could use it pressed directly to the clit or circle it. "I love you, Kiki" (alive and kicking) is no longer just a misheard song lyric!
extremely quiet, perfect for travel, ergonomic to focus on the clit
the buttons are difficult to locate and hard to press, difficult to find the variety of rhythms
This compact and quiet little vibrator is perfect for those with roommates or who travel frequently. It's easy to pack and conceal and it makes so little noise, not even someone sharing a wall with you will know what naughtiness you're up to. Ladies who get their pleasure primarily through clitoral stimulation will enjoy this little gem.
The PicoBong Kiki is made of a smooth silicone. It's not very flexible but that's okay because it's very compact and short, so there isn't much that would be able to move even if it was flexible. The silicone feels soft to the touch, but it's firm and it's nice because the end that you screw off to insert the battery is smooth, slippery plastic so the silicone offers some grip. This little sucker won't go flying ala the escargot in Pretty Woman, which would seriously ruin the moment. Silicone is also pretty resilient, so it's perfect for beginners. The only rule to remember is to only use water based lubricant. When I first opened the package there was a slight oily feel to the toy, probably from the manufacturing process, but I washed it with water and antibacterial soap and the oil feel was gone. It has a slight odor to it, but it isn't off-putting and I think the longer I have it and it's exposed to air, the more the odor will dissipate.
The size and shape of this toy is just about perfect, in my opinion. It's very small and I travel a lot so this will be perfect for me to stash away in a corner of the suitcase. On a more personal note, I have small hands and some large toys are unwieldy for me to handle. This is perfect. It nestled into the palm of my hand and allowed me to control its movements with just my fingertips. The tip that nestles against the clit is not a normal domed point like you find in many vibrators. It has a flattened end with a slightly pointed tip that I tried using in different positions. I found that I liked it best when the pointed tip was pointed down and away from my clit, letting the flattened portion rest on and rub around the clit itself. I don't think the size would make a difference between advanced or beginner users; however, it will be very popular with ladies whose primary pleasure comes from clitoral stimulation. And people with small hands. I wouldn't say it's exactly discreet. It doesn't look like something innocuous. It sort of looks like E.T.'s finger when he reaches out to touch Elliot's. I kept expecting the tip to glow but, alas, no alien contact.
The PicoBong Kiki is brilliant in that it's small; comfortable to hold, direct, easy to use and that it's exceptionally quiet. I wouldn't hesitate to use this vibrator with someone in the next room, which makes it perfect for people with roommates. I consider myself a relatively intelligent woman but I have to say, it confounded me for a few minutes when I initially looked at it. I had read the instruction manual that came with it and saw the + and - symbols mentioned to control the vibrations and rhythms, but I'll be damned if I could find the + and - symbols. Talk about a humbling experience. It's the size of a tampon and I couldn't locate two little symbols on it. I finally found them situated within the "P" and "B" of PicoBong on the side. I experimented with them to go through the selection of vibration strengths and rhythms but, to be honest, I found it difficult to get to the vibration rhythms. You're supposed to hold the + button and get to the highest steady rhythm then hold the same button for 2 second intervals to move to the rhythms, but every time it felt like I'd gotten to the highest steady rhythm, I'd hold the button and nothing would happen. I still don't know exactly how to predict that. I need to explore more with it. After some fiddling, I did manage to get it to move onto the rhythms and they were interesting, though I found myself preferring the steady vibration rather than the rhythms. Also, as you hold it nestled in your palm down there in your nether regions, there's no easy way to see or feel the buttons because they're under the silicone shell and flush with the surface. I think if they had made the buttons stick up a bit, it would be much easier to locate and utilize them blindly with the pad of a thumb. Thank god the silicone gives it some grip because muddling around blindly with your thumb trying to locate invisible buttons on a wet toy could easily have lead to some irritation when it went flying and you had to retrieve it.
One of the big perks of the PicoBong Kiki is that it's made from high quality silicone, which is more durable than other materials. It can withhold and show little wear and tear even with extended friction and it's easy to clean. All you have to do is use warm water and antibacterial soap, according to the instruction manual. Never use silicone lubricant with it however, because it will cause pitting in the silicone surface of the toy. Water based lubricants are perfectly safe. The Kiki didn't come with any sort of storage, so I keep mine in my toy box away from dust and things. It's waterproof so if you have any reservations about keeping it in a box with other things, you can easily rinse it quickly under the tap before playing.
The PicoBong came in a cute little pink box. If you're giving it as a gift, you could easily leave it in this box. The toy is nicely presented through the clear window in the front. However, as cute as the pink box is, it didn't include any kind of storage for the toy. It comes strapped to a black cardboard tray and doesn't include the battery you need (AAA) to operate it. Thankfully I had one on hand because I am not a patient girl and I didn't want to put off playing with my new toy just to run to the store. It came with two short manuals. One explains the one year warranty for the toy and the other gives the instructions for how to use it. I think it would have been more helpful if the instruction manual gave clearer instructions regarding finding the vibration rhythms available to you. I still struggle to get past the steady rhythm and get to the variations.
I had a lot of fun exploring with the PicoBong Kiki and it seems like a really quality toy. It has made me curious to try more of the company's toys, so I guess it was a good little ambassador. I don't generally climax from penetration. I'm a clitoral stimulation girl so that's usually how I end up using my vibrators. I hold them on my clit and let the vibrations work their magic. The problem is, they're not made for that. They're made for penetration so they're large and unwieldy and my wrist is uncomfortable after a while, so I love that the PicoBong Kiki is small and fits in my hand. So many other dildos and vibrators are big and difficult for me to hold at the right angle for any length of time. This was perfect and seems made for small hands. One thing that confuses me though, is something that came with the toy in the packaging. I tore into the box, like any self-respecting girl does, and nestled on the cardboard tray beneath the toy is a gaming die. It's black and on each side is a pink symbol representing each of the PicoBong toys. In the manual it says, "Been wondering what the dice is all about?! Head over to www.picobong.com to find out!" So, off to www.picobong.com I trotted and found a game you can play on the website, but as far as I can tell, the actual game die serves no purpose other than to garner interest. I was a little disappointed because I thought the die might have some sort of interactive purpose. Roll the die and use the vibration rhythm indicated. It's a challenge! But no, as far as I can tell, it's just to sit there and be cute. Oh well, I'm sure I can put the die to use in mischievous ways.

I traveled with this little beauty and it was wonderful. It tucks away into the corner of your bag because it's so little. I kept it in the drawer of the hotel's bedside table and it's quiet, so I didn't have to worry about using it while sharing walls with the next hotel rooms. It was the perfect travel companion.
