Diamonds On the InsideThe Love Diamond is a rabbit-style vibrator that offers 3 types of vibration at 9 different speeds. A jewel embedded near the head of the toy offers a little extra stimulation, especially when the rotating head feature is used.
The majority of the Love Diamond is made of TPR, a thermoplastic rubber compound also known as TPE. It rates a 7 out of 10 on the EdenFantasys material safety scale, since it is somewhat porous and can not be disinfected by boiling. If you plan to share this toy, it should be covered by a condom. The material is squishy but not sticky. There is quite a bit of drag to it, though, so you may want to have some lube handy to make insertion more comfortable.
The control panel of the toy is made of plastic, which is non-porous and easy to keep clean.
There was a light smell to the toy just out of the package, a sort of faint chemical perfume. I can still smell it if I put the toy up to my nose and sniff, but it isn't a strong or even really noticeable smell in general.
It took me a while to figure out what the clit stimulator was supposed to be, but I finally realized that it's a hand. The middle three fingers make up the actual clit attachment, and the thumb and pinky finger are built into the design on the side of the shaft. One perk of the super-soft TPR is that you can bend the clit attachment a full 180 degrees back and forth, so you have a little more freedom in being able to make it hit the right spot than you'll find with many toys.
In terms of size, I'd put this on par with a fairly average penis, so it shouldn't be too big of a hurdle for those new to penetration, but it's still large enough to be satisfying to the average user. If you need a LOT of length or girth in your toys, however, this may not do the trick.
Operating this toy is fairly simple. After pressing the on button (which will light up to confirm power), you can press the up arrow for either the vibration or the rotation. Each time you press the up arrow, the function you have picked will go up a notch in intensity. The down arrow, as you can guess, will bring you back down in intensity. Since the vibration and the rotation have separate sets of arrows, it is easy to have a high intensity vibration with low rotation, or vice versa.
The function button in the middle will control whichever feature you used the arrows on last. For the vibration, there are 3 available functions. The first is a simple steady vibration, which increases just enough to be noticeable as you scroll up the 9 speeds. The second function is a pulsing vibration that goes back and forth between two slightly different intensities (say, for example, 3 vrooms and 3.5 vrooms). This can also be raised up through 9 levels of intensity. The third function is simply a faster version of the second.
The rotating head also offers 3 different functions. The first is a simple clockwise rotation. The second function has the head drawing a full circle one direction, then switching directions to circle the other way. (i.e., one clockwise circle, then one counterclockwise). The third function is similar in that it switches directions, but this is with half circles instead of a full rotation. Scrolling up the arrows will increase the speed at which the rotations take place.
At its lowest settings, both the vibration and rotation on this toy are fairly quiet. However, as you increase the intensity, both grow quite a bit louder, and if you are using both functions at full intensity things can get pretty loud.
The waterproof seal on this toy is pretty sturdy, but you do have to be careful to screw the battery cap on correctly to make sure it stays waterproof, since getting it on a little crooked would break the seal.
The Love Diamond takes 3 AA batteries, which are inserted in a removable triangular battery holder. You just unscrew the cap at the base of the shaft, remove the holder, fill it with batteries and pop it back in. The holder on this toy has a little string attached to help remove it, which is a feature I've never seen on similar holders, nor ever really needed.
Either water or silicone based lubricants can be used.
The vibrator is nestled in a plastic tray inside of the box. The entire box measures just over a foot long, so some may find it a bit too bulky to keep around. The package also included a little "Vibrator Instruction Manual" that talks about battery insertion, warnings, and instruction for use. It's a generic instruction sheet that comes with a lot of Cal Exotics' products, though, so there are no instructions specific to this toy.
Overall, however, this has been pretty fun to to put through its paces. When I read the "200 functions" note on the box I was expecting a bit more variety than the 3 types of vibration, but it's still a fun addition to my ever-growing collection.
