HATE For The Machine.The iRide was something I lusted after for a long time, and saved up for even longer to get. It hurt, despite the many positions we tried, and to be honest after about one month, I wound up trashing it. It was just painfully clear that this toy was not something I would find a way to enjoy. Sad, but true.
The iRide is a toy shaped like a semi-circle, and the main purpose of the toy is to ride on it. You can squat on it, put it on a chair and lean against the back rest, use it laying down, use it while you give your partner oral, rock on a bed, the possibilities are endless really. My husband even managed to tie this to by body while I was hanging from the ceiling in the Pleasure Swing. I have even read reviews from a male perspective saying that this is fun to use anally, but I'm a female so I am not going to write from that perspective. If you're a guy interested in using this for that purpose, you will definitely want to read some more reviews.
The iRide is equipped with two vibrating pieces, the clitoral bump, and the dildo. They both vibrate and you can activate them each separately.
I had a couple of problems with this toy. One of them is the clitoral bump - for me, it was too hard. It's very solid and if the toy is pressed too deeply against my body this is just downright painful. My clit has never been good at taking too much pain, so this was just no fun for me. The other thing I had an issue with was the dildo. I'm not entirely sure why but it always hurt me inside and my vagina aches for a few hours each time I use this. It's very uncomfortable, unsexy, and no fun.
I did not notice any smell coming off the toy and there was no taste to it either.
The toy is 13" long, 6" wide, and about two pounds. I find the dimensions for the toy are pretty comfortable, and my issue is really where the dildo sits and the hardness of the clitoral bump.
As for hiding this toy, good luck. You may be able to slide it under a bed or something, but if you're trying to be discreet this isn't exactly the sort of thing you can store away in a drawer or something. My husband and me are not discreet people, but even we had a bit of a hard time storing it. Because of the size, I do not recommend this for travel.
The toy runs on four AA batteries which do not come with it. It is recommended you take the batteries out after use.
Another good thing about the iRide is that it is very quiet. I didn't notice the sounds very much at all when the toy was inside me, and even when the toy was not inside me the noise level was minimal.
The iRide is NOT waterproof, so it is best that you keep it outside of water. Cleaning can be a bit tricky, but I'll get to that later.
When it comes to cleaning, this part can get a bit tricky. The iRide is NOT waterproof, and the dildo is not 100% flush up against the side of the seat. The problem is this: (and it's a bit hard to describe so bear with me) basically, the dildo is a separate piece that was fitted into the iRide. There is a very small gap between the iRide and its dildo which you only really notice if you are twisting the flexible dildo at all, or cleaning the toy. I was always a little bit worried that lubricants were going to slide down in there and cleaning the toy made me worry just as much.
What I wound up doing is whenever I was done using my toy I brought it to the kitchen sink. (The toy will not fit in my bathroom sink, but that depends entirely on the size of your sink!) and I used a damp washcloth to wipe the toy down with antibacterial toy cleaner and then soap and water. I would towel dry and put this back in our play room.
The iRide contains TPR, so any sort of silicone based lubricant is not recommended. Stick with water based.
