A Bumpy, Ridge Filled Ride

The Straight Up is a well crafted vibe which carries strong vibrations better than most other vibrators on the market. Nubs and ribs create intense texture without taking away from the vibrating sensation. An easy to hold base along with a large twist dial provide easy access and comfortable handling for those who have trouble with smaller vibes and controls. Finally, the softness of the toy provide a smooth, easy ride.

Use

The Straight Up is a soft, durable, hygienic, textured vibe which is intended for both clit and vaginal stimulation. Used internally, the toy provides intense stimulation to the vaginal walls and even g spot. Externally, the ribs, nubs, and tip of the vibe provide moderate stimulation to the clit. Because the toy has a lot of girth and texture, it is recommended that users have some prior experience with vibe use. The vibe is useful for masturbation, couple play, and even play in the tub or shower as the unit is waterproof.

Material / Texture

The Straight Up Vibe is constructed out of 100% silicone which is manufactured in Europe. Silicone is naturally hypoallergenic, latex free, phthalates free, and nonporous. In other words, silicone is one of the safest materials used in the sex toy industry.

The Straight Up is extremely soft, squishy, and bendable. The head is studded with two bands of raised nubs. The first band is about 2/3 of an inch down and boasts eight nubs. The second is two inches down and boasts eight nubs as well. Six ridges cover the entire shaft, beginning at the head. Four of the ridges are very slight but the two in the middle are raised, increasing the normal circumference of the toy to five and a half inches. All ridges and nubs are very soft and pliable.

The vibe has a slight, tangy odor without any taste what so ever. Therefor, sucking on it is not unpleasant.

    • Flexible
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

The Straight Up is intended for all around vaginal stimulation. Aspects such as G spot stimulation are not mentioned by the company and are purely a plus. Women who have very shallow G spots may be able to gain intense stimulation from the raised nubs and ridges of the toy. Women who have harder to reach G spots may gain some stimulation or none at all. In this case, each woman will experience something different. All women will experience deep vaginal stimulation and vibration from the Straight Up.

The vibe is eight inches long with five inches of insertable length. The circumference ranges from four and a half inches at the head of the vibe to five and a half inches at the base.

The Straight Up is a matted light purple which is obvious and an eye catcher. Because the vibe is covered in ribs and nubs it is not at all discreet. However, the toy is extremely sturdy and well suited for travel by air, sea, or road.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibe has a multi-speed function with three settings, low, medium, and high. The low setting provides strong vibrations which are centered only at the tip of the toy. Medium increases the range of felt vibration from the tip to the bottom of the shaft. The last setting, high, provides intense stimulation with vibes that carry evenly throughout the entire toy. The Straight Up has excellent, even, vibe flow. Users are able to choose whether or not they want the vibe to only vibrate at the tip or throughout the entire shaft.

The controls consist of an easy to hold, upside, turn dial. Turn the dial towards the vibe to turn it on and increase speed. Turn the dial away from the vibe to decrease speed or turn it off. Above the dial is a handle which makes thrusting the toy very easy. Women with arthritis should find the grip and handle of the toy more comfortable than most.

The vibe is noisy and sounds like a small appliance when set on high. The sound fades when inserted.

The vibe is waterproof and can be used in the shower, tub, pool, or jacuzzi.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

Because the Straight Up is silicone it cannot be stored with other silicone toys. Store it in the provided plastic case to keep it safe and protect it from breaking down. All lubes used with this toy should be water based. Oil and silicone based lubes cannot be used. Finally, the toy can be cleaned with soap and hot water or putting it in the top rack of the dishwasher. To wash remove the two double A batteries and reseal the cap tightly. Place in the dishwasher and run through the wash cycle. Remove and store. The toy does not collect dust and is an inhospitable environment for bacteria.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The vibe comes complete with a clear, plastic, storage box. The name of the toy adorns the front along with painted purple ribbons and flowers. Two metal clasps keep the lid closed and secure. An included, fitted, plastic insert keeps the toy secure and prevents it from sliding in the container. Finally, the storage box is suitable for gifting.
    • Good for storage
    • Would make a nice gift

Experience

The Straight Up provided me with intense vaginal and G spot stimulation. I didn't really expect G spot stimulation, but for some women it is possible with this toy. I found the ridges and nubs to be very supple and comfortable. A little water based lube and I was on my way. Once inserted I turned on the vibe and was filled with strong vibrations from tip to the end of the shaft. Used on the clit, I found the head of the vibe to fit nicely against my hood. The nubs and ribs also provided a nice texture.
Follow-up commentary
Goodness, this girl is a lucky one! She's still just like new and as strong as ever. I've stored her in her case the entire time and it's really helped. I highly recommend her.

    I was really surprise to find out it has an odor. Usually silicone is scent free. That's too bad. Great review.

    Has the odor dissipated at all over time on this toy or is it still as strong as when it came out of the package? I know some tend to lose their smell over time.

    AKAme, thank you.

    ToriRebel, the odor is not at all strong but has not dissipated. Even so, it is not irritating.

    First of all, it is purple! I love purple. Great review. This looks like one that we need to add to our toy box. The design of the controls sounds like a great design and we love toys that are waterproof.
