I'm Not Feeling Very RevitalizedThe one thing that irritates me more than anything else is when toy information lies. I don't mind toys that aren't waterproof, if they at least present themselves that way. The lack of waterproofing, plus the lackluster vibrations makes this one a complete flop for me. I had high hopes, but this one just crashed and burned.
The Rejuvenate is a discreet clitoral stimulator, made by Cal Exotics; subtle enough to not be immediately noticed as a sex toy, which can also be used to stimulate a shallow g-spot. This vibrator can also be used by men and couples (though I don't imagine it would be fun to use anally) for external stimulation, or partner play. This would be fun to use on the nipples or testicles, or even the perineum. As this cannot be sanitized thoroughly, though, if you're going to try this anally (even externally anally) I recommend having a second one for vaginal use, or using a condom to cover the tip.
The shape is similar to the Gigi's, almost, with the flattened head, nice for laying flat on the clitoris, or for stimulating the g-spot. The head is more rounded, though, than Gigi's, which makes this toy slide well when lubricated. This toy is also quite petite, with a 4 1/4" length (and only 2 1/2" of insertable length). This would be an unthreatening introduction to penetration, as well as clitoral stimulation, for beginners.
The Rejuvenate is powered by a pair of AAA batteries, inserted into the base of the toy. I must say, this was absolutely the worst battery compartment I've ever seen on anything. I'm no Mensa member, but I generally don't have a great deal of trouble opening my sex toy battery compartments, and it took me about fifteen minutes to figure out how to open and close it the first time. Maybe mine was just stuck? It's easier, now that I've ~*learned the trick*~ though. The battery indicators (which tell you which battery goes up, which goes down) is located right above the holes for battery insertion, and is a bit hard to see if you're not sure where to look for it.
My second complaint about the battery compartment is in line with CalExotic's claim of waterproofing. BZZZT. Wrong. Thanks for playing. This toy is definitely NOT waterproof, and I'd be hesitant to even call it splash-proof. Before using this toy, I gave it a quick wash, and the battery compartment was FULL of water. Tiny little fish would've been right at home. I did not, at any point, submerge it; I merely rinsed it off, and the battery compartment still got soaked.
Made of PU coated plastic, it's a fairly safe material, and Phthalate free. Although this toy cannot be sterilized and sanitized, it's compatible with any both silicone and water-based lubricants. For daily maintenance, you can clean it with warm water and soap--but, as I said earlier--it is NOT waterproof, so be gentle. It's unscented, and latex-free, and is wonderful for those who are sensitive to smells, or who have allergies. It's got a smooth texture, which becomes even more slick with lubricant, and doesn't collect lint. That's right: NO LINT! WOOHOO!
An additional benefit (especially for those of us who value our privacy) is that this toy is very quiet; even on the high settings, it's too quiet to be held with music playing, or a closed door.
This toy is super easy to use; it nestles gently in your hand, and practically molds to you. The vibrations are concentrated in the tip of the vibrator, but they do travel down the 'spine' of the toy, and have mostly dissipated by the base of the toy. For me, though, the vibrations were just not adequate. I tried the Rejuvenate first with rechargeable batteries, and found the vibrational intensity to be (at MOST) a 2. Perhaps my environmental consciousness was wishful thinking? I swapped to regular batteries and, while the vibrational intensity did increase to a 3, it still didn't do much for me; it wasn't nearly enough for me to reach orgasm.
