Alien EggWhat is this toy for? I'm still not quite sure how it was intended to be used, but despite some small design flaws this is a solid four star toy. Aside from my active imagination deciding that this is an alien egg, it's a bright yellow clitoral stimulator that has a lot of oomph and quite a few settings.
You can use this on the clitoris, nipples, or around the entire labia. It has a bit of the ability to 'pinch,' but more detail about why that isn't my idea way to use this later in in the review. It's also fine to tease other erogenous zones with, and with the tip of the top 'fin' it can also be used for some light tickling.
This toy would be a great way to introduce a vibrator in the bedroom, but may not be your best bet if you're looking for something to use between two people during sex because of the round shape. It's not intimidating at all and is easy to use without worrying about putting too much pressure anywhere.
This toy passes Ryu's dorm seal of approval, but just by a hair. The supple silicone and the waterproof design make this great for shower play, but this is almost too loud for me to use on the highest setting in the shower. The iffy charger also makes it a bit of a pain to charge without the roommate seeing.
I would not recommend this for travel because you can't take the batteries out and you can't lock it. If you're just tossing it into an overnigher you'll be fine, but if you're keeping it in your luggage it may go off and cause an upsetting scene.
Silicone makes up the entire yellow portion of this toy. While it has some drag to it, not a lot of lube is required to get it slick, if any at all. When used in the shower I found that no lube was needed, and I feel like most people will be able to just grab this and go.
The plastic base and buttons have no drag to them at all. The buttons are raised and have symbols on them, but not enough to instantly tell them apart. No part of this had any scent or taste out of the package, and it has retained neither after time.
The silicone is very soft and flexible, which can be both a pro and a con. On one hand, it means that this toy is easy to use and the 'fin' is easy to bend down to 'clamp' onto things. It's very difficult to bruise yourself or others with this toy because of the softness. On the other hand it's difficult to get pinpoint stimulation or to put much pressure with it at all, so it really depends on what works best for you.
I feel like both beginners and advanced users will appreciate the supple silicone this toy is made of. More advanced users who know what they like may want something more firm, but if you're just experimenting and don't know what your body needs silicone is a good place to start.
This toy is essentially a round toy with a slice out of it, resulting in a cleft and two 'fins.' The upper 'fin' is longer and a bit thinner than the lower 'fin,' and the upper 'fin' is more flexible because of this.the rest of the toy has little give to it at all.
The cleft is one inch deep into the toy, and is slightly offset from the top of the toy. I was hoping that the cleft would be about 'clitoris' length, whatever that may be. I am sorry to report that there is no way my clitoris is even half way to reaching the back of the cleft. If you want to use it this way, make sure your clitoris is about 1 inch long.
One pleasant surprise I had about this toy is that the upper 'fin' vibrates, much like a 'rabbit' style toy. This is nice to use on the clitoris if you don't need a lot of pressure and like more of a 'teasing' sensation.
You can use the larger 'fin' to clamp down on your clitoris or nipples, but as I'll explain in more depth below it dulls the vibrational power quite a bit. I found that using the broader area of the upper fin to be the most effective.
Overall, this design is a bit confusing for me. I don't really understand how it was intended to work, but I feel like it has a lot of options. I feel like this would be a good toy for people who don't need a lot of firm, pinpoint stimulation.
Here's a picture to give you an idea of the basic design
Here's it compared to a pen to give you a basic idea of the size
The vibrations are very powerful on the highest setting, but again, it really is hard to rate them. In the back of the top 'fin' is where I find them to be the most direct, rumbly, and intense. On the bottom 'fin' the vibrations are a bit milder and less intense. On the base (plastic part) of the toy the vibrations are fairly intense, but they're buzzier.
When I tried to clamp down on my clit by bending the upper 'fin' to the lower 'fin,' I found that by putting pressure on it the vibrations were considerably weakened. On the inner wall of the cleft the vibrations seemed very deep and intense, but I can't vouch for them during use because my clitoris just isn't long enough.
There are quite a few settings to this toy controlled by the three buttons on the base of the toy. They are very easy to press, but I haven't had any problems accidentally pressing them by mistake. There seem to be five intensity settings, but it's a bit hard to tell because they increase fairly gradually. They range (on the most intense and deep vibrational part of the toy) from 2 vrooms to 4 vrooms. You control these by pressing the + and - buttons on the toy.
There are also quite a few different patterns on this toy. You can access these by pressing the 'flower' button on the base of the toy. They cycle through as follows;
2- bbbZZbbb bbbZZbb
3- bbbbbZZZZZZbbb bbbbbbbZZZZZbbbbb
4- bbbbbbbBBBBZZZZZZZZZzzbbbbbb bbbbbbbBBBBBZZZZZZZzzzzzbbbb
Once you pass the last setting you end up back at the first pattern. To get back to the constant vibrations you can press either the plus or the minus button. In order to turn is off you can either press the - button continuously to cycle down or hold it down for a few seconds to power down and turn off.
Because of the magnetic charging that Fun Factory utilizes, this toy is completely waterproof. I have used this multiple times in the shower and submerged this to clean it and have had no issues at all with water getting into any part of this toy.
Functions and performance wise, this toy would be good for anyone looking to try new intensities or patterns. It's a bit hard to navigate in the moment, but once you get the hang of it you can do it fairly smoothly.
I would not recommend storing this in contact with other silicone toys because the two pieces may react together and leave you very upset. For similar reasons I would recommend not using silicone or hybrid lubes with this toy, at least not before doing a very small spot-test.
When you look inside the box there is an instruction manual and the sexy storage pouch that this comes with. The charger is packaged separate, but I'm not too sure why that is. The box itself isn't very informative, but the instructions do supplement it a bit. One piece of information I couldn't seem to find on them was how long to charge the toy for! I wouldn't hesitate to wrap this and give it as a gift.
It is silky and cream colored, and both bags have separate draw strings. If you are traveling you can always use the bags independently and use one to carry your FOU and the other to carry the charger, so that's a really good design idea. This itself makes it feel like a high quality toy!
Occasionally when I pick this up or turn the bag upside down to get this toy out it will still pulse yellow. I don't know what causes it, but it really helps me support my fantasy that it's some type of living creature.
While I can not guarantee that everyone will feel like everyone will feel like a science fiction heroin when they hold and use this toy, it's a wonderful and artistic design. Even though I personally couldn't get this to work for me the way (I think) that it was supposed to, it is still a wonderful toy.
My boyfriend likes this toy because of the small size and the color, but he was a bit confused by the function of the cleft. I was a bit left down that I really couldn't give him a good answer.
I am rating this toy a 4 out of 5 stars. It's a bit loud and buzzy for such an expensive clitoral stimulator, the fact that the charger has to be on there juuuust right, and the fact that I didn't see why they designed it like they did have caused me to dock this a star.
