From Rumble to TingleLa Metropole is a high quality vibrator that offers three levels of steady vibrations and two pulsing modes. It's small enough to be taken anywhere, and comes with a little suede travel case to keep things discreet. The vibrations are not of a consistent frequency though, they tend to vary while in use.
The rounded curved tip is perfect for pinpoint stimulation on the clitoris or perineum, or you can use the backside of the curve to cover a longer area.
La Metropole's smaller size combined with the non-porous materials make it very easy to hide in a room or to tuck into a travel bag or purse. And if you utilize the included travel case it's very discreet.
You can cycle through the five levels of vibrations repeatedly, until you press and hold the button for a couple of seconds again to turn it off. No matter what setting the vibrator is on when you turn it off, La Metropole always starts at the lowest one. The levels are:
1. Gentle steady rumbling vibration.
2. Medium-intensity steady rumbling vibration.
3. Strong steady vibration that is of a higher frequency (thus it feels more buzzy/tingly).
4. Strong high frequency pulsing; buzz buzzzz buzz buzzzz
5. Strong high frequency pulsing; buzz buzz buzzzz buzz buzz buzzzz
The vibrations are a lot stronger in the white plastic area than in the metal base so it doesn't numb your fingers during use. La Metropole isn't a loud vibrator overall, but at the highest three speeds it does emit a high-pitched buzzing that can be heard very easily through the bed covers. So if you're sharing a room with someone or find yourself in a situation where you really need to be quiet, this toy may not be your best choice.
The LED light stays lit while the toy is in use, and serves as a battery indicator right after you turn the toy off; the light will flash three times if the battery is still full, twice when it's at half power, and only once when it's time to replace it.
La Metropole is "splash proof," which means that it's ok if moisture gets on it, but you cannot submerge it.
La Metropole is compatible with any kind of lubricant, and it can be stored pretty much anywhere.
The box does have a large picture of the vibrator on the top, along with the words "Sensual Massager," so if you're really worried about being discreet you can simply use the travel case for storage instead.
I prefer high frequency vibrations for both perineum and nipple stimulation, so I really like this toy. And the lower level is absolutely amazing if you can get your gal to press it against her cheek during a blow job. I'm not much into using it on Michele though, because it's a bit hard to keep a grip on once things start getting wet and wiggly.
I thought it was odd that this toy had such a distinct difference in vibration frequencies depending on what setting we used. The lower two are nice to warm up with, but the rest are more tingly feeling than what I like. It's a frustrating combination for me really, because if I'm playing solo I have to be patient with the second level instead of being able to click it up that extra notch to finish off quick. I get *really* good results using it on Alan though, so it's still a keeper :D
