Harmonia; Good beat, but I couldn't quite dance to it.All in all, I was disappointed in Harmonia. It was my first shot at a G-Spot vibe and, while it was informative, and probably good for someone else, it was not my cup of tea. My biggest complaint about this vibrator, as far as impersonal flaws, is that gods-awful seam. The lack of accuracy in the vibrations was also really disappointing.
Harmonia will be for you if you need length, circumference, and you do not need pinpoint accuracy for G-spot stimulation or texture.
Lots of variety in settings
Great packaging and extras
May be too long or too large for beginners
The head of the toy is a little larger than I feel like would be comfortable for any other uses, clitoris stimulation, etc, but that might just be my personal physiognomy.
The texture also comprises one of my big gripes about Harmonia. It has a very large, very prominent seam, that runs all the way up one side the shaft, and down the opposite. It is very uncomfortable, and, without a pretty substantial amount of lubrication, even painful.
Harmonia is a large toy, and not very easy to hide. But the Close2You packaging, while not small or discreet, is very secure and makes storage simple. It has a fitted-mold sliding tray for the vibe itself and a second sliding tray for batteries, a small package of lube, or whatever else you like to keep handy. With a little modification to the outside of the box, it could be a very discreet way to store Harmonia.
Initially, Harmonia's vibrations feel equally strong throughout the shaft to the head. During actual use, the vibrations seemed focused in the base of the shaft. I had trouble feeling the vibrations in the head at all during actual vaginal use.
Harmonia's controls are very easy to use, with separate On/Off and Function buttons. Upon shutting off, Harmonia reverts to Function number 1. I did find the noise level more than I expected it to be, but not louder than acceptable. I personally wouldn't want to use it without a sound buffer (TV, music, yatta yatta).
Harmonia is also billed as waterproof. Unlike any of my other toys so far, it DOES have a sealing ring inside the battery casing handle, but the buttons don't seem to be as waterproof as the rest of it, so I have not been brave enough to try it.
The promotion that was running when I bought my Harmonia included a velvet storage pouch, which is what I use to store it, but the factory packaging, as I described before, is perfect for storage. With a little modification to the outside, it can even be perfectly discreet.
Since Harmonia IS silicone, any water based lube should be just fine with it.
The package that I received was a part of a promotion, and did include an extensive instruction manual/catalog. It also included a small package of Lust lubricant and a package of generic toy cleaners (both water-based). Also included was a Dolce Ami Violetta, a textured silicone cock ring.
Its vibration is quite strong, but buzzy enough that it makes my fingers numb after using it more than a few minutes. The god-awful seam is less painful once there is a remarkable degree of lubrication.
But when it comes down to it, I just can't make Harmonia work for me. I don't know if it's the wide G-spot head, or a bad angle or shape, or what, but I find it completely and totally impossible to have a g-spot orgasm with this toy. I would have sent it back if I hadn't already gutted the packaging for other uses.
I hate to say this, because Close2You products are so pretty, and so affordable for luxury products (I assume they're luxury, this is not my personal, trial-based opinion), but this was such a bad experience, I don't know if I will seriously consider purchasing any more of their products.
Anyway, proof positive of my first rule; if it feels bad, it's contrary to the point, so don't do it. And as such, I'm out about $40.
Vibe on, Eden.
