Fun and PlayfulThis cute toy exceeded my expectations! While it would be a great beginner's toy, I feel like the interesting and innovative design will also impress more advanced users. If you have an easy to please g-spot or like different textures in different moods, this would be a great addition to any toybox. I highly recommend it despite its small flaws.
As far as external use goes, this is also great for clitoral play. The dual-material also makes it interesting and a great way to see if you like more or less drag on clitoral toys. The length of this toy makes it easy to lay over the clitoris and labia for all-over stimulation, but may not be the best for pin-point vibrations.
I would not recommend this for anal play other than maybe light teasing around the anus. It has no flared base so there is a good possibility it could become stuck inside of you and I don't want to endorse any emergency room visits!
This would be great for beginners especially, because of the small size and the ability to test new sensations without too much money invested. Advanced users may find it boring, but I would recommend it to anyone interested. It would be a good toy for couples because it would be hard to bruise someone internally with it and because of its small, playful design.
This toy passes Ryu's dorm seal of approval because of the small size and watertight base. It's easy to stash in a drawer and it's great to take in the shower. It can't be heard through a door or over the sound of the shower, but can be heard in the same room.
Out of the box this toy has no scent or taste, and hasn't retained either after use. The plastic is very smooth and slippery, and if you want to use that side clitorally it doesn't require any lube. The other side, however, has quite a bit of drag and most users may prefer to use a bit of lubricant with it.
The TPE side can clearly be felt in use, and the difference is fairly dramatic inserted, as well. When thrusting you can tell which side is which, especially because of the pull on your vaginal entrance. You can also feel the difference between the two when they come in contact with your g-spot, and it really is a great way to compare the different materials.
I would recommend this toy for both beginners and advanced users, especially if you're just looking to experiment with textures and materials. Advanced users will appreciate the new and different feeling that the two materials give this toy, especially used internally. Plastic is rated an 8 out of 10 on the EdenFantasys Safety Scale, while TPE is a 6. This means that if you plan to share between partners you should use a condom because the surface may retain bacteria after cleaning.
Personally I could use this on my g-spot fairly easily, but I also have been able to use almost every toy for light g-spotting. I would recommend this for both insertion and external use, especially for beginners. If the dual-texture doesn't appeal to an advanced user, the shape of this wouldn't be a reason to purchase it. It also isn't good for a 'size queen' who needs a 'filling' feeling, but if you haven't had many insertable toys this is a great place to start. It is 4 inches insertable and 3.75 inches around, making it not very intimidating to new users.
This toy would be good for travel, but I would recommend taking the batteries out beforehand. If found by security it wouldn't look like a weapon, but it may be obvious what it is you're taking with you on vacation.
The vibrations are moderately rumbly, which I appreciate, but aren't anywhere near some of my more expensive silicone toys. They are located about in the middle of the shaft, but travel well to the tip of the toy. If you are holding this firmly for a long period of time you may find that your fingers get numb, but because the vibrations aren't too buzzy it is much nicer to hold than say a bullet vibrator.
My two problems with this toy is that you can change the settings fairly easily while thrusting due to the placement of the button, and then the fact that you have to cycle all the way through the settings in order to turn this off. I have had no problems with water getting into the battery compartment during use in the shower of after submerging it.
Being made of TPE and plastic, this is compatible with all types of lubes. You don't have to worry if your favorite type of lube will react with it, so that is always convenient. Again, if you plan on sharing this between partners you should keep a condom over it because the colorful material is slightly porous.
On the back it has small circles with dots in the middle, indicating the features this toy offers and giving some basic information like how many batteries it takes (two AAAs), how to clean it, what lubes to use, how many speeds, etc. There were no paper instructions included, but the package was informative enough.
I would gladly wrap this toy and give it as a gift if I had friends that would appreciate it. There are no naked women or really even any mention of sex on the box, so it would be great for someone more modest. I wouldn't store it in this box because it is much larger than the toy, but you COULD use it for storage if you were desperate.
I am giving this toy a 4 out of 5 stars. The porous material is a bit of a bummer and means that this may not last as long as a nonporous toy, the fact that it is easy to change the settings when thrusting, and the fact that you have to cycle through all three patterns to turn it off are all small issues that add up to it getting one star off. I would HIGHLY recommend this toy.
