Doesn't rock hard, but niceRock star Tina is a 100% silicone, body safe, velvety, bulged, multi-speed, cute traditional vibrator. The silicone has a nice velvety texture and the bulges are a fun way to switch things up from a regular straight vibrator. The size and texture is good for any user and a nice introduction to different textures. It just isn't the most powerful thing out there.
Rock star Tina is a 100% body safe, bulged, multi-speed traditional style vibrator. She is designed to be used vaginally but you could also use her for clitoral or nipple stimulation or for massaging over any other part of the body. I do not recommend using this anally and that discretion is completely up to the user, the base part isn't very large and that is why I recommend against it. This toy is good to use alone or with a partner. It is waterproof so you can take it into the bath/shower with you.
Because of the bulges it may seem intimidating but noting the circumference I would say this vibrator is okay for beginners to try as well as experienced users. This toy isn't discreet and not something you can toss into your purse to travel with, though it would be fine in a suitcase or overnight bag. If left out someone could probably assume what it is.
The handle is made of plastic. There is also a decorative metallic design near the base that is also made of plastic.
The material is suitable for any user.
Here is a photo showing how flexible the shaft is:
At first glance it may be intimidating to beginners but with a circumference of of 4 1/2" it shouldn't be uncomfortable to you. The size should be suitable for most people but those that have to have girth may not be satisfied with it.
The bulges can be felt when thrusting but are not overstimulating or uncomfortable. If you are curious about texture and glass is intimidating to you then I think this vibe is a great place to start. The bulges feel wonderful and add for a different experience/sensation to the normal traditional straight vibes. The rounded tip makes it nice for thrusting and being that it is silicone it won't bruise you internally. It does have some flexibility to it so you could try to angle it some if you wanted to try to hit different spots.
The measurements are:
Length: 7 1/4"
Insertable length: 4"
Circumference: 4 1/2"
Diameter: 1 1/4"
Compared to Je Joue Uma:
There are no modes with this vibe, just steady vibrations with increasing speed. Turn the dial which is the round bulb on the end up or down to increase the speed. The dial isn't hard to use but being that the battery compartment is a pain I did accidentally unscrew it while attempting to turn the dial so you don't have to use a lot of strength when turning or that is what will happen.
The vibrations are felt mainly in the tip and middle slightly down to the plastic base. The vibrations don't travel well into the handle so it won't leave your hand numb like some vibes do. The vibrations are like a deep buzzy feeling.
Tina is fairly quiet and won't be heard outside of a closed door but it would be heard within the same room.
Tina is marketed as waterproof but I didn't test it out. If you choose to do so, I would be careful because of the battery compartment. You will want to make sure it is screwed on tight enough so that the water won't get in but also not too tight as the toy will not turn on.
Only use water based lubricant with this toy.
To clean you can use warm water and mild soap, toy cleaner or wipes.
There are directions on how to use this vibe located on the back of the package.
