Use

Out of all the vibes I've tried (probably all the ones out there, since I've owned about 400 toys in my life) I find the MiMi (both the first MiMi and the second MiMi, which I now own as of yesterday) to be the best clitoral vibes available. They are BOTH the strongest, and easiest to use. Fully submergeable and extremely easy to take care of. If you're going to spend your money, spend it on this vibe. Believe me. I'm a pro, and this is what you really want when it comes to a vibrator. You will not be disappointed.

A lot of people see MiMi as a toy specifically made for women and clitoral stimulation. But little do they know, it is also great for massaging a male's perineum. My husband finds the MiMi to be wonderful for that purpose. He also enjoys slowly and lightly running it over his scrotum and shaft. Definitely enhances our sex life and gets him rock hard before each session of love making. If you like outer anal stimulation (around the anus, but not inside) this also works well because of it's somewhat flat design.

Perfect for the college kid as it is one of the more quiet vibrators available. I actually found it to be quieter than the Leaf vibrators. I wasn't sure until I was able to turn them on together in the same room. It's hard to tell sometimes. But when I compared them all, the MiMi was the quietest. I actually had the help of my best friend to determine what was the quietest so it's not "just me"!It is covered in silicone. Completely easy to take care of. Give it a quick wash in some light antibacterial handsoap and warm water. Let it dry off, and store it anywhere you'd like. Since it's completely waterproof, it is fully submergeable making it easy for you NOT to worry about whether you got water into a crevasse and ruined your new toy.

The MiMi I has been known to have a bubbling silicone layer, which I believe has been corrected from what I've been told by Je Joue. So I do recommend that when you turn it on, you check to feel if any air fills up under the layer of silicone. If you feel anything bubble up (mine previous MiMi bubbled up like a balloon!)do not use it.

There is no taste (Yes, I tasted it, just for you.) and no smell whatsoever. There is also no texture, which may be bad for some people who prefer it. I find the buttery silicone to be preferable for me. It glides so easily that you could probably use this without lubricant if you wanted to. I have a few times and had no problem at all. Of course this depends on your level of personal lubrication.

The lack of texture makes this great for beginners and advanced users alike. I find that it is great for men especially. My husband has always preferred silky smooth silicone vibrators and this one was "the one" for him. Doesn't tug too much on his sensitive scrotum and glides right across his perineum without pulling any hair or causing discomfort to his skin.

Since this toy is made of Silicone, do not use Silicone-based lubricants as it will degrade the material.

Material / Texture

The MiMi is completely covered in Silicone. Very, very easy to take care of. Give it a quick wash in some light antibacterial handsoap and warm water. Let it dry off, and store it anywhere you'd like. Since it's completely waterproof, it is fully submergeable making it easy for you NOT to worry about whether you got water into a crevasse and ruined your new toy. I always worried about this with my Leaf toys because of their small holes.

It glides so easily that you could probably use this without lubricant if you wanted to. I have done so a few times and had no problem at all. Of course this depends on your level of personal lubrication. If you are a little more dry, you'll want to use some lubricant.

Design / Shape / Size

The design of the MiMis are fantastic. They are oh, so easy to hold, and easy to use. Some have said it is bad for pinpoint stimulation, but I think that's something you have to really find out for yourself. I thought the same at first, but after a few days of getting good practice you will find that you can easily hit the smallest spot (the clitoris, for example) by using different angles. The MiMi looks like an egg or a bar of soap. It isn't round, but it is flatter like a river stone. So you can turn it on its side, and use the smaller curved end to hit an area of the clitoris dead-on.

Extremely easy to hide. The light pink looks exactly like a bar of soap and the black looks just like a stone. It's hard to notice among other objects on your dresser, in a box, etc. I have a bowl full of riverstones in my bedroom on my coffee table and as long as something is blocking the buttons, you literally can't notice a thing unless you were to dig your hands into the bowl.

Functions / Performance / Controls

There are two buttons on the MiMi I.

"+":

You hold the "+" button down for about two or three seconds until the toy has turned on. You will now find yourself on the 1st level, which is a low rumble. Feels great, even at its lowest level. Continue to press the "+" over and over and you will cycle through the other 4 vibration levels (5th level is VERY intense) and through the 6 pulsation modes. I'm not a fan of pulsation so I never use them, but someone who likes them will be very pleased with the variety.

"-":

The "-" button is there to back-track. If you want to go back a level, just press the "-". It is also the OFF button. Hold it down for about 2-3 seconds and the MiMi will shut off.

This toy is the quietest toy I own so I highly recommend it if you live in a house full of people, live on campus with a roommate, or like to travel. There's nothing worse than having the hotel room nextdoor banging on the wall for you to shut your vibrator off. I know because it has happened to me! I am currently renting out a room to two friends and I am one of those people who cannot relax if I know other people can hear me masturbate or have sex. So the MiMi is a relief!

Totally waterproof. If you are like me and love to play in the shower or tub, the MiMi is your best friend. Fully submergeable and the water makes it even more slippery. I will say that it is a little noisy in the tub because of the intensity. The water splashes everywhere as soon as the MiMi hits it, and the vibrations will echo through your tub. So take caution.

Care and Maintenance

Caring for a sex toy simply doesn't get any easier. Whether you own the MiMi I or the new generation MiMi, you hardly have to lift a finger to take care of these.

1. To wash, simply use a light antibacterial hand soap and warm water.

2. Let it dry completely before recharging.

3. Don't use Silicone-based lubricants.

4. Attach the MiMi to the charger before putting the charger in the wall. A 2 hours of charging gives you 2 full hours of play on the highest setting.

5. Remove the MiMi from the charger once it has finished charging. (Red light will stop flashing and become constant)

6. You can store it anywhe

Packaging

The MiMi comes packaged in a rectangular box. Pretty tall, as it holds the charger, manual, and the MiMi. Has a special compartment fit perfectly for the MiMi, and underneath is another compartment for the charger. Says "Je Joue" on top, but looks like a fancy jewelry box.

When it arrives, it is covered in a regular factory box that says it is a "massager". So I recommend opening this in private. It isn't noticeable from afar. But if your family/friends/etc. are like most people, they want to see what you are opening and they will notice what it is if they're old enough to know that a vibrator is. So it isn't exactly discreet, but not exactly indiscreet? A picture of the MiMi is on the outside factory box as well.

All components of the package are recyclable. Is appropriate for gifting if the outside factory box is removed. Once removed, the inside "keepsake" box is covered in plastic so it will not appear to be used.

Personal comments

I currently own both the MiMi I and the second generation MiMi. They are both just as exquisite. I want to note this because I feel it is important. This isn't word for word, but it is a summation of what the difference is with the MiMi I and the second generation MiMi explained to me by a Je Joue representative.

Second Generation MiMi:

- New Silicone layer that does not bubble up with air. This is a common manufacturing issue Je Joue has been having with the MiMi I. (You can still get it replaced if yours has this problem. Not all of them are bad, but it is just a common issue they have had according to a Je Joue rep. Also according to the fact that it has happened to three of the ones I have owned).

- New charger that is supposedly safer to use and less likely to malfunction. It has a blue light to let you know that it is working correctly.

- New third button. The "+" is still the ON button, and still progresses through the levels. But the third button, when pressed, starts the pulsation modes. This is basically in place to keep you from going "too far".

- Just as powerful. No difference as far as that goes.

- Buttons are easier to press, but not so easy that you might turn the toy on accidentally.

All manufacturing issues have supposedly been corrected. And since they are both as powerful, I can't really recommend either or over each other. They are both just as powerful. If you often have hand pain from a toy, the new MiMi may be better simply because the buttons are easier to press.

Experience

I love my MiMis. Both of generation I and the new MiMi. I love them just the same. I've given the MiMi I to my husband because he seems to like it better. I think it fits his style because it is just a tad bit simpler in his mind. He hates things with more than two buttons. But it is honestly just as powerful as the other. Just as easy to use aside from the buttons being a tad bit harder to press on the MiMi I. Just as silky smooth, and just as powerful. Charges easily, and feels so gosh darn good. The fact that it is great for stimulation for both partners makes this a great toy for everyone, even though it has a feminine appeal. Great for nipple and breast stimulation.
Follow-up commentary
Not happy one bit to find that my MiMi is now malfunctioning after several months if owning and no damage. The power goes up and down without me even changing the level. Imagine being close to climax and then having your vibrator feel like it is about to die. Doesn't charge correctly. It's just ridiculous. I really thought this product was of more quality but I was obviously very wrong.
