Massager by Jimmyjane

Bone, You Bore.

The Contour I is made of quality materials to the highest standards, and could mix into a massage routine perfectly. In many cases, however, it is no better than your own hand.

The JimmyJane contour I is a high quality product, most assuredly, and a decent value for its tag price - but honestly, it bores me. I've been thinking about it, and I think it boils down to the fact that the Contour I is less effective than my hands at massaging, making it something I never reach for when going for massage supplies. This is a shame, as I really feel like this massager has the potential to add quite a bit to the massage, somehow. Maybe in a different shape.

The Contour I is made from ceramic - double fired porcelain, actually - and promises to be hardy and life long lasting if treated correctly. It's shape is that of a letter I, or a bone, or a small dumbbell. It's small, however - the balls are perhaps 1.25" across, and the toy only has an overall length around five inches. This really excludes it as an insertable toy for many, but it could work well for some, perhaps more so with a partner in control. As a massage aid, it tucked nicely into the palm and was light enough to allow free movement to and fro. Unfortunately, however, it's really nowhere near as exciting as a hand for either of these purposes. Additionally, I found that the ceramic surface grabbed at skin a little unpleasantly when used with a massage cream. This could be better with an oil, I think, but it's another reason I'm not overly enthused about the Contour I.

The Contour I is non porous and can be sanitized by doing a soak in a dilute bleach solution. It should not be boiled or dishwashered as it could break with extreme heat changes. Likewise, the Contour I will hold temperatures for pleasantly long, and could mix well with a hot stone massage. Still, I don't think this particular shape is worth it.

    It's a shame this isn't better, they sound like such a good idea. Even if it's not the greatest, though, how do you think it would do for someone with arthritis or other issues in the hands? I can't always give a massage because my hands get stiff and cramped easily, and I was wondering if just holding something like this for massage might work to relieve the strain on my hands.

    Good question Lily, but I think the answer is the same: not much better than your hands. Now, I could be wrong, as I don't have arthritis. But I do get tired hands when I have to grip onto things the way I have to hold the contour I, so my suspicion is that if you have hand issues, the contour I could provide a nice hand-position change which could then let you keep going with the massage, but I think it would end up giving strain issues as well. However, if its really the applying of pressure that tires your hands out, the contour I would actually be helpful.

    It's too bad this doesn't work better. I've been contemplating this one, but I may stick with the massage stone I have.
    Good review!

    Thanks Red! I think I'll be passing on this one, then. Perhaps the contour M...

    I'd probably feel the same way about the toy. Thanks for an honest opinion. I'll pass too.

    This is the only one of the Contour stones that I don't have. Did you try it on it's end as a pressure point massager? That's the way that I was wanting to use it.

    Oh and Luscious Lily, if you have arthritis concerns I'd definitely recommend the M, it allows your hand to spread out over it which makes it a LOT more comfortable to give a massage. I don't have arthritis but I do get nerve pain in my hands and this helps me give a longer massage.

    @Alicia On end? Its not bad, but a hand is better still. Its a nice option for when your fingers get tired and need a position change, however, which can come up when you're really working a knot. Its not a bad product, but I never ever grab it.
