Vivid Dreams Aren't So VividWell it's not the strongest toy, but it can be useful for a little teasing, and can be fun if used anally. If you have any other jelly toys with only a motor in the end, you've probably already experienced exactly the same things this toy has to offer. That being said, if you enjoy toys like that I would definitely recommend this for it's swirl design.
Easy to clean, discreetly quiet, multiple settings, and waterproof.
Weak vibrations, and motor in end only.
This adorable toy can be used as a vaginal vibrator much in the same way a spork can be used as a fork. It works just well enough to give it a try, but it never really gets the job done. It can be used a little more effectively for clitoral stimulation, though the thick jelly material seems to absorb too much of the vibration to hold the end (where the motor is located) anywhere specific. Though if you enjoy a light vibration this might be worth a try. There is an upside to the design, however. If you enjoy anal, the light, unridged swirl of this toy makes for a comfortable, entirely pleasant feeling. The motor in the end allows you to only penetrate as far as you like, and the vibrations feel slightly stronger when used this way.
The biggest downfall about this toy is that it's made of Jelly, therefore cannot be sterilized. If you do use it anally, be sure not to share it! As for cleaning, boiling is a no-no. You can clean them lightly with warm water and soap, but if you use too wrong of a soap it can cause it to deteriorate. If you do want to share there is always the option of covering it with a condom. For storage we simply put it in a drawer that contains bottles of lube and a couple other jelly toys. We never store them touching, or with any other materials, as we've had other materials "melt" jelly toys before. This usually happens when they're placed with rubber toys, but not always. It's a little strange, but not worth the risk of ruining anything. This particular toy is great about NOT picking up any lint. We haven't had a problem with it picking up a thing, even when it was dropped on the floor. (Don't worry, it was cleaned right away after that!) Also on the brighter side - it doesn't have any scent like most jelly toys can! I was thrilled about this myself, as our last jelly toy smelled awful when first opened!
The swirl design used here is something I would love if only the vibrations were a little stronger. The toy itself is 8.5" long, with an insertable length of 6.5". The motor is in the very end only, which restricts the vibrations throughout the length of it. Despite the weak vibrations even at its highest setting, you can choose your own speed with the dial based control. Thankfully it's not something that's easy to bump, but be warned - if you get lube on your fingers the dial can be a little difficult to turn off in a hurry! If you're looking for something discreet, this toy is quiet enough that your roommate shouldn't hear a thing, but it's not discreet enough to be travel size. Unless of course you pack it in a suitcase instead of a purse.
There is a dial located on the base that simply turns the vibrations up and down depending on which way you turn the dial. There is no quick shut off option - you have to turn the dial all the way down. It doesn't turn so far that it takes more than a moment to turn it all the way off or all the way up, but if things get slippery it can take a moment to grip it enough to turn it. It's not loud at all, and only emits a low buzz. This can easily be drowned out by any other noise in the room. IE: A fan, stereo, or TV. It is waterproof, and held up to that claim very well in the shower, but I haven't braved testing it out in the bathtub yet. I worry about submerging any toy with a dial on it for fear the water will seep in somewhere, but I can say it was in the shower for quite some time without any issue. Another great thing about this toy is that the 2 AA batteries it takes last for quite some time. We have used this a few times to be sure we get the same results each time, and it still isn't losing power.
While jelly can't be sterilized, this is still fairly easy to care for. I thought the swirl design may make for areas that were harder to get clean, but the lines don't go deep, and cleanup can be as simple as rubbing it down with a toy cleansing wipe. Be sure not to boil anything made from jelly, and not to use any harsh soaps on it. A mild soap and warm water is all you need here. It's simply stored in a drawer, where it doesn't collect dust, or lint, and is away from other materials that could ruin it.
