Things That Make You Go Vroom

Jopen's Vr1 from the Vanity line is another Brilliantly made luxury toy. This one is a kegel exerciser! It's very unique compared to other kegel exercisers, as it has multiple modes for use; pleasure and exercise. It's effective in both ways. It makes my vagina do more work than any of the other sets I have. I am very impressed with this toy.

Use

The Vr1 is from Jopen's Vanity series. Jopen is actually a sub-line from California Exotics! The Vanity line is the only luxury toy that is completely covered in 100% pure silicone. No other materials like plastic touch the body. The Vr1 is a little different than the other toys from the Vanity line; it's a kegel exerciser!
The Vr1 is designed for arousal, and most of all, Kegel exercises. Kegel exercisers are also known as pelvic floor exercisers. Kegel exercises consists of repeatedly contracting the pelvic floor muscles; it's the same as any other weight lifting, except it's in your vagina! Kegel exercising can help prevent urinary incontinence, as well as the prolapse of the pelvic organs. One of the best benefits of Kegel exercises is the sexual function. Using them can create arousal while you're wearing them, but it can also help you achieve better orgasms through long term use. Also, they can help you feel tighter to your partner. In the fifties, Dr. Kegel reported that the women doing his exercises were orgasming more frequently, intensely, and more easily! Imagine if they were using products by Jopen!

This one is very unique compared to other kegel exercisers. It vibrates and there's two modes offered. Exercise mode, which is like a reward system and pleasure mode, the name says it all! We'll get to that later in the performance section. Of course, these are meant to be inserted vaginally. Even though there's a retrieval cord, please don't put it in your bum. It could easily go awry.
It's rechargeable, waterproof, incremental speed controls, touch activation and has a great warrantee. Seriously awesome.

Material / Texture

The Vr1, like all Jopen products, is made of 100% non-porous silicone. This one of the safest materials as it rates a 10 on the safety scale. It's smooth and one of the velvetiest types of silicone. It actually looks like velvet!
It creates some drag, but I only need minimal amounts of lubricant with this. It has no texture except where the buttons are underneath the silicone in the handle. The premium material holds body heat so well. It's completely tasteless and odorless. The silicone feels fairly thick since I can barely feel the inner motors. It's labeled as 'virtually seamless, but there is a seam running around the whole toy. It's definitely visible, but can barely be felt.
The retrieval cord is a tiny bit stretchy. The only texture is the small embossed lettering at the bottom and where the control button is.


    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

The Vr1 is cute. It's shape is almost like a little person. A person with no arms or legs. Per usual with Jopen's Vanity line, it's a vibrant magenta. A medium violet red to be exact. It's much heavier than most kegel balls at 10 ounces, but it's more than likely most people won't have trouble keeping it in. The body is 3.5 inches in length. The retrieval cord is 2.5 inches, making the whole toy 6 inches in length. The widest part of the body is 4.5 inches in circumference, while the smaller bulb is 4 inches in circumference. The body and top bulb are very firm, but the neck in between the two is extremely flexible. The cord can be compared to the style of cord on Funfactory's Smartballs, but much thinner and more pliable. Not at sturdy, unfortunately.
It's not realistic in design, so I'd call it somewhat discreet.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Vr1 will arrive at your doorstep locked from the factory. Mine had life in it when I received it, but it's recommended that it should be charged when you get it. The recharge port is at the bottom of the toy and can be plugged in to an 110/240 volt power source. Some people question that it is actually waterproof because of the port, but when you put that charger in, you have to apply a lot of pressure, so you can really feel how secure the port is. I would not submerge it for lengthy periods, but washing it under water or bringing it in the shower, is something I'd say is okay and something I do. It takes about 3 hours to charge. I've been using mine for almost two week on just one charge, so it holds the charge really well.




The controls were a bit tricky to get the hang of, but after a few uses, it's a cinch. To unlock the toy, just hold the button down for 4 seconds. Once unlocked, it will vibrate and the red LED light will flash. This will instantly bring you in to exercise mode. To go in to pleasure mode, squeeze the body, which is the pressure sensitive area, until you reach your desired speed, then press the lock button for 1 second. To turn the toy off, hold the button for 4 seconds. When not in use, remember to lock the Vr1 so it doesn't lose its charge. After 5 minutes of inactivity, it will put itself in sleep mode.

Exercise Mode: As soon as I inserted it, it just constantly vibrated. I have to make sure it's pushed up, so it rests in the proper area. To my surprise, I does exactly what it's supposed to do. I give it a week squeeze, and it will give me a quick weak vibration. When I squeeze as hard as I can, it will give me a powerful vibration. It's a great reward system. I can't wear this for hours like I do with other exercisers because it can be too loud. It can definitely be heard by someone close. If you're sitting on a couch or chair, it will carry the sound of vibration through it. It's kind of hilarious. It's a bit too loud for a kegel exerciser, but nearly silent as a clitoral vibrator.

Pleasure Mode: After it's put in constant vibration, it can easily be used as a simple clitoral vibrator. I thought the neck was going to be too flexible, but it did not prove to be a problem at all.

The vibrations are impressive for what it is. When on it's highest intensity while in pleasure mode, I'd say it's 3.5 vrooms. The vibrations are rumbly at their lowest settings, but become buzzy when increased. It's recommended that a water-based lube is used, but I've done patch tests on Jopen toys with a higher quality silicone lube and it's a-okay.

Care and Maintenance

Since we're working with a sturdy built product and high quality materials, upkeep is minimal, but it should be stored properly. Cleaning is a breeze since there's no nooks and crannies to be aware of. It can be achieved with a mild soap and water, or a toy cleaner. I use my favorite California Exotics toy cleaner. I saturate it for about 30 seconds, rinse, pat or air dry. I can't recommend boiling to sterilize because it can destroy the motors. It can be a dust, lint and hair magnet, so I'll clean it off with a toy wipe before I use it. Storing it in the pouch that is provided by Jopen is a great option for storage. It fits the toy and charger easily. In fact, you can probably put the whole box in the pouch, it's so big. It's also a great bag to keep it in if you wanted to travel with it.
The box it came in could also be used for storage, as it is somewhat discreet until you turn it over and an image of the Vr6 is revealed. It's 8.5 x 2.5 x 3.5, so it could fit on a shelf or under a bed nicely. It's cardboard and card stock, so it can be recycled. Don't keep it in extreme heat or sunlight.

Personal comments

Like I mentioned in my video, I am a connoisseur of all things kegel. I have almost every set of exercisers I've laid my eyes on. So when I saw this and how unique it is, I knew I had to have it. My favorite set is the Luna Beads because they are the most rumbly. I need the really rumbly sets because I have no trouble keeping any set in, so that feeling acts as a constant reminder. I wear them all day and I get spurts of exercises throughout the day. Sometimes, I just don't really think about it when they're in and I only give it half assed flexes. The Vr1 makes up for those half assed flexes, for sure. It makes me squeeze as hard as I can for as long as I can. So when I go through a day where I felt my Luna Beads or Smartballs, did help me achieve a good enough exercise for the day, I'll pop in the Vr1 at night-time to make up for it. I'd go as far to say that it is my most effective kegel exerciser. It helps me to exactly what I'm supposed to be doing to the best of my ability.

I can't wear this all day like all my other sets because I don't want everyone hearing my vagina vibrate, but I absolutely love this thing. I'd definitely recommend it to someone that's never done kegels or someone with a larger vocabulary in them. The only bad thing I have to say about it is that it appears that my retrieval cord is not going to stay attached forever. It seems to be loosening. I've used it about every other day for almost two weeks, so if it's already giving this soon, I can't imagine it will hold up much longer. I'm not going to get all up in a tizzy about it because Jopen offers a 1 year warrantee with an optional 10 year replacement guarantee!

Here is a size comparison with a few of the other sets I have.
From left to right: Luna Beads classic, Emigi 92, Vr1, Teneo Uno, Luna Beads mini, Luna Beads noir.

Follow-up commentary
I don't use this exerciser as much as I had originally intended, but it is still a brilliant tool for kegel-ing. Like I mentioned in my review, it works exactly as it's supposed to. I'd still recommend this.
