An okay toy, but a bit girthy for meWhile the Key Ceres G-spot isn't a bad toy, it's a bit underwhelming for what you get. While some people feel like these toys are a 4 on the vroom scale, they just don't seem quite that powerful to me. They also still only have one power setting, but they are quiet and waterproof. Even if it is nice to have around, I just can't quite recommend this unless it's on big sale.
The main way to use this toy is vaginal insertion. It is smooth and has little texture, which makes it great for thrusting, and it has a very firm, wide g-spot tip. Because of the girthy tip, this toy is not for people who aren't used to insertion.
This toy can also be used for clitoral stimulation, but nothing very pinpoint. The large tip makes it hard to only hit your clitoris, and sends deep vibrations through the whole area. It can also be used to stimulate the nipples and other erogenous zones, but isn't good to work out muscles because of the flexibility.
Even though it has a long handle, I can't recommend this toy for anal insertion. It has no flared base to keep it from slipping inside of you, and even if it would be fairly safe to hold on to I'd err on the side of caution and only use toys with a flared base anally.
If you want a first toy to use as a couple, this wouldn't be the best option. It's pretty large, and takes a while to warm up enough to insert, so it wouldn't be a good toy for foreplay. It's also got a bulky tip, so you really couldn't use it to aid in oral or clitorally during sex.
This would also be a pretty bad choice for a first toy in general because of the size. Unless you're used to being penetrated by very girthy guys, I'd recommend getting something a bit thinner and easier to insert for a first toy. It's also usually a good bet to get a toy with a smaller price tag while you're experimenting and learning what you enjoy.
This toy 100% passes Ryu's dorm seal of approval. It's very quiet and waterproof, meaning that you can use it in the showers and in your room without raising suspicion. It's a bit large, but it comes with a carrying pouch and is an easy to care for material.
Silicone is rated a 10 out of 10 on the Eden Safety Scale. It's nonporous and body safe, meaning that it won't leak gross chemicals into you and that bacteria can't live under the surface of the toy. It's flexible and soft, and usually has a bit of drag to it.
Metal, especially steel, is also nonporous and body safe. Both metal and silicone can be disinfected by boiling them for several minutes.
Plastic is rated an 8 out of 10 on the Eden Safety Scale. It's very firm, and almost never has any drag to it at all. Plastic can't be boiled, so in order to disinfect this toy you should wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution.
Even though silicone is soft, most of this toy has little give to it because it's over firm plastic. Right before the g-spot tip there is some give, where the plastic inside ends and before the motor, but that's it. The silicone does cause it to have a bit of drag, but the girth is what would make someone need to use lube with this toy.
I got this toy in blue because I loved the 'jewel'y plastic in the center, and the blue looked especially pretty in that style. The blue plastic is slightly transparent, and the lighter colored silicone is opaque. It is a very pretty design.
While the toy is totally smooth, there are a few 'veiny' ridges. These can't be felt during use, and seem to be there just to make it look prettier. There is a small seam where the plastic meets the silicone, but that part isn't meant to be inserted.
This toy is made of great, safe materials. It's very smooth and has little texture, and the color combined with the different materials just looks cool. All users will appreciate the nice materials this toy is made of.
The Ceres G-spot measures in at 7.5 inches long, with 5.5 of that being insertable. The tip of the shaft measures 4.75 inches around at the widest point, but the shaft is much thinner than that when you insert it. This makes it about as long and a bit wider than the average penis.
Even though the girth is 4.75 inches around, it FEELS like it's over 5 inches. This might be because it's so rigid and the bulge is pretty close to the tip, but it's quite hard to insert for a girth wimp like me. The good thing is that it narrows out pretty quickly after the widest point, so once it's inserted it doesn't leave your entrance feeling 'stretched.'
If you do manage to insert this toy comfortably, the strategy of the g-spot tip is pretty much 'cover all.' It puts a fair amount of pressure on the entire front wall of your vagina. This is great if you like that kind of stimulation, but if you want firm, pinpoint g-spot stimulation this may not do it for you.
The design of this toy makes it okay for clitoral stimulation, but not the best. You can use the tip for moderately pinpoint stimulation of the clit, but it's not as direct as using a bullet. The wide head is best for broadly vibrating the entire labia and clitoral area.
The blue, plastic handle is easy to hold, but can get a bit slick if you have a lot of lube on your fingers. It's a good size for most people, and even if you have very large hands this toy shouldn't be a problem to maneuver.
If you leave this out it's pretty darned obvious what it's for, so you should keep it put away when company comes over. It's an alright design to travel with, but is a bit bulky to toss into a purse or an overnighter.
If you like a girthier toy and don't mind the minimal give the Ceres has, this is a good toy for g-spot stimulation. It looks wonderfully, and if you can insert the tip the thinner shaft makes for easy thrusting. I wouldn't recommend this toy to beginners because of the rigidity and girth.
The Ceres VS a pen:
And a detail shot:
The Key Ceres G-spot has seven settings, which are controlled by the button on the base. When you're using this toy internally it's pretty easy to press the button during use, but if you accidentally change the setting it's not too big a problem to just cycle around again and find the one you were on. You hold down the button to turn it on, and then you press it again to cycle through the settings. The settings are as follows:
1) Solid (Almost 4 vrooms, almost 2 bees)
3) bbbBBBZZZZ bbbbBBBZZZZ
4) BZZ BZZ BZZ BZZ
5) bzbzBZBZ bzbzBZBZ
6) bzbzbzbz bzbzbzbz
To turn this toy off you just hold down the button for 2 seconds. This makes it easy to turn off in a hurry. When you turn the toy back on it starts back at the first, solid setting.
The vibrations at the tip of this toy are SUPER strong, but are a bit weaker at the shaft of the toy. This makes it great to get the powerful stimulation straight to your clitoris, and when you insert it you can certainly feel the vibrations right on your g-spot. While the vibrations are weaker at the handle and shaft, they still do vibrate your fingers. I found that after about 15 minutes my fingers started to feel unpleasant from the constant vibrations.
I have used this toy in the shower and washed it several times, and neither time did I find any water in the battery compartment. The o-ring keeps this toy waterproof, which makes it very convenient to use. The vibrations were the same strength under water.
The Key Ceres G-spot is rumbly and has quite a few patterns, but isn't something that seems worth the price. I'm still upset that this line only seems to have one power setting, meaning that if you're sensitive this might be hard for you to use.
The best way to disinfect this toy is by wiping it down with a 10% bleach solution. This should be done every time you switch users to prevent the spread of bacteria and infection.
Silicone should not be stored in contact with other silicone toys because the two could react together, especially if they're from different companies. Similarly, you should not use silicone based lube with silicone toys.
The front of the packaging has a slogan about the toy and an image of it. It's entirely black, white, and the color Ceres you chose. It has some minimal information in small print about the functions and what kind of battery it takes. The Ceres box is larger than the boxes for the Charms, Nyx, and Io.
The back of the packaging is an image of the toy, again, and bullet points highlighting the most important features of the toy. On the sides are instructions in several different languages.
Inside of the outer box is a black box with white text. This gives you basic information about the entire line. It also talks about the quality guarantee and such. This opens up to show the toy itself. Under the insert that holds the toy is an instruction booklet and the storage bag.
This packaging would be great to wrap up and give as a gift. It's obvious about what's inside, but at the same time it's playful and attractive. I use the storage bag for storage because the box is pretty bulky.

The Ceres VS the bag:
The Ceres vibrators are larger than the 'Petite' and 'Mini' vibrators in the Key line. They're also more effective for insertion and thrusting, mainly because of the longer length.
The Key Ceres toys also have 2 more settings that the Io, Nyx, and Charms. While these two settings aren't power settings, some people might value having the extra variety.
The Key Ceres is a bit more powerful than the Nyx, and has considerably more oomph than the Io and Charms I have, but still doesn't rank at a full 4 vrooms. This might be a bit less power than some people need, even though it is very rumbly. Here's a comparison photo between the Nyx, Ceres, and Charms:
As soon as I got this toy I fell in love. The color was even prettier in person, and the soft silicone had almost no drag to it. I put in the batteries, and was a bit disappointed that it wasn't stronger and didn't have more power settings than the other toy, but I shrugged it off and continued.
My biggest problem came when I had to insert this toy. The sharp increase of girth at the tip was really causing me issues! It was even a bit uncomfortable after I got the large tip in, but it was good for g-spot stimulation.
I would like to mention that I am a huge girth wimp. I am fine with softer toys like the Tantus Tsunami, and I don't have any issues with real penises, but if it's firm silicone, plastic, glass, etc. I just can't insert anything past 4.5 inches around. Most ladies aren't like this, so this isn't a mark against the toy.
I am giving this toy 3 out of 5 stars. It still only has one power setting, is still under 4 vrooms, and is pretty darned expensive. Some users are saying that they think it's a 4 on the vroom scale, but it's just not that strong to me. It's quiet, silicone, and has deep vibrations, but for this amount of money there are toys out there that will be a better value.
