Fantastic, with a Few Serious FlawsI'm still torn about this toy. I love that it really works for me as a dual stimulator. I love the strong clit stimulation, the texture, and the body-safe material. I'm ambivalent about the weak rotations. I'm frustrated by the flexibility of the tip. I hate that water leaks easily into the toy, so I can't use it in the shower. It's a lot of fun to use, but leaves me wanting more.
It also is better as a solo toy. There's a bit of a learning curve when figuring out exactly how the Amorous works best for you, and handing over the controls to someone else could potentially be very frustrating.
The texture along the shaft of the vibrator is interesting-- two raised bands of silicone run up along the sides like waves, ending at the tip. I can feel them when first inserting the shaft or thrusting, but not during the rotation function. I think beginners (like me) will like it, but those who like a lot of texture may be disappointed.
I don't like that the upper half of the shaft is fairly bendable, which I assume is so that it can rotate beneath the silicone covering. This means that it doesn't provide firm G-spot pressure, which is something I wanted.
I hate the way this vibe closes. Why? Because the cap over the batteries just pops in with a quarter-inch turn. Water leaks in around the edges and straight into the battery compartment after a minute in the shower.
The vibrations travel well throughout the clit stimulator. In fact, this is my favorite part of the toy. There are three speeds, the highest very powerful (I'd give it four bees), and then four vibration patterns. The patterns are: even pulse, escalating, faster/stronger even pulse, and three short pulses followed by one long one. I liked most of the functions for teasing, but found myself returning to the high setting to orgasm. The power of the clit stimulator drops noticeably when the rotation is on, but it's still pretty strong on the higher two speeds. For me it felt amazing.
The Amorous also rotates at three different speeds. I'd never experienced rotations before, so I was curious to try them, and a little disappointed. On low, they're hard to feel at all. On high, they feel good but not amazing. I found myself wishing that they went higher or that the shaft would vibrate in addition. For more internal stimulation, I enjoyed thrusting with the toy-- gently, so I wouldn't damage my clit. The wavy texture feels better than the rotation to me.
This toy is quiet when inserted. It's about as discreet as rabbit vibrators get. The controls took a little getting used to - there are three buttons in a row on the base of the toy. The lowest is the on/off button, the next controls the vibration, the third the rotation. They are labeled with self-explanatory images, which is good as the vibrator does not come with instructions. My main complaint with the controls is you have to learn by feel which button it where - otherwise, you run the risk of turning the toy off when not paying attention. I definitely had to get used to this toy through experimentation.
Lastly-- this toy claims to be waterproof. IT IS NOT. Do not use it in the tub, do not use it in the shower, do not use it in a rainstorm. Really. Clean it with caution, and make sure to dry out the battery compartment afterward. Water gets into this toy after a few minutes in the shower due to the way the cap is constructed. For something with waves on the side, water spray on the packaging, and a dolphin shape at the base, this was very disappointing.
