Just Right for MiMi

The toy who needs no introduction! Mimi's design may seem simple, or maybe you're afraid of hype, but this really might be the one ring, I mean vibrator, to rule them all. I have yet to find an external clitoral vibrator as powerful, as varied in function, or as attractive in a jack-of-all-trades shape as the Mimi.

Use

The Je Joue Mimi is one of the most talked about (and talked up) clitoral vibrators. It's touted as being one of the most rumbly vibes for its size and the antithesis of many of the buzzier but equally powerful toys, like the Pocket Fairy Mini. Its breadth and flat shape make Mimi an excellent counterpoint of sensation to bullet-shaped vibes.

The Mimi is perfect for any lady who loves clitoral stimulation. However, it's not just for clitoral stimulation, but all over the vulva, the inner thighs, nipples, and breasts. If you like a great variety of power and functions, its generalized shape could work for men, too. Many have likened its shape to a massage stone and since it's firm, it could even work out a few knots in your other muscles!

Mimi is the ace of clitoral vibrators, so as such, Mimi is not intended for penetration. The flat shape doesn't lend itself to vaginal penetration, and I imagine such a small, smooth toy could get lost very easily anally, so don't do it.

Mimi is waterproof and quite versatile, so taking her many places is definitely an option. Relaxing in the tub, hidden in a purse, or traveling in its own classy box are just a few more things Mimi can do!

Material / Texture

In your hands...
The Mimi is gorgeous to touch. Sometimes, you just want to run a finger over the totally smooth, matte, 100% silicone. This kind of silicone is my favorite -- velvety, with little to no drag. The Mimi is also hard, the outside shell being totally firm. Pressing on it with one finger, you can't feel any give and Mimi has no flex in its length.

You can really see the difference between Mimi's kind of silicone and others in this photo. The We-Vibe Touch is really draggy and attracts lint like crazy. Mimi doesn't attract lint at all! Additionally, some silicone can pull on whatever pubic hair you may have down there. This is as unsexy as it sounds. Mimi doesn't do this because her silicone is so smooth!
Linty

Color
I received the rose color, which is just lovely to look at, as it's such a saturated shade of pink!

Taste and Smell
I did not notice a taste or smell to Mimi, which was excellent. The area around the control pad, however, is slightly raised, with a ridge and somewhat pronounced niches around the buttons.

Texture and Impressions
Mimi has absolutely no texture -- every time I see it, I think 'fake rock'. It's almost like a bar of soap in its smoothness and shape. In use, it's almost like a tongue!

Design / Shape / Size

The Shape and Size
There's not much to this design! Its lines are totally smooth, uninterrupted, and fit into your slightly cupped palm perfectly. The simplicity makes Mimi perfect for beginners and the power makes her indispensable for advanced users.

Mimi is surprisingly small and, for some reason, I expected her to be heavy. She's not! In fact, Mimi feels hollow, especially when the vibrations are going. Others have said that this makes Mimi feel cheap. For me, the strength, packaging, and material have me convinced otherwise. I would say the lightness doesn't detract from the experience, but it did surprise me.

Measurements:
Length: 3" exactly!
Width: 2 7/8" at the widest point.
Tip: 3/4" wide and about 0.5" deep.

The Good
I don't think I've ever been turned on with another toy quite like the way Mimi inspires! The rumbly vibrations reach everywhere and her broad surface is ideal for pressing against all your sensitive areas at once! I love that I can lay and stroke the tip from my entrance to the head of my clitoris and even up the shaft so easily! The powerful but rumbly vibes were quite the experience as well, which totally changed the flavor of my orgasm.

The Bad
Mimi has been criticized for losing power upon pressure. I very much dislike when toys do this, but the Mimi is nowhere near as bad as the Touch. The good news is that, like the Touch, Mimi's loss of power is not noticeable on the highest settings.

6. Fast pulse
7. Rev
8. Slow pulse
9. Even faster pulse

Design
I said earlier that Mimi is perfect beginners and advanced users -- this is because she has, count 'em, 5 levels of steady vibrations. I personally could do without patterns, but being able to 'build up' with multiple levels of power is essential. Also, this allows any user to find their ideal level and experiment outside their range, if so desired.

Also, Mimi can do whatever function you want on whatever level of vibration you desire. How cool is that! The vibrations inside Mimi seem to be located near the tip. You can definitely feel that the base does not vibrate as much, but since its small size necessitates holding it over most of its length, getting a tingly hand is definitely possible.

I found the sound of Mimi's vibrations to be a little odd. Mimi is not terribly quiet, but the sound at the lower levels has an almost grainy quality, even a bit pulse-y, and sounds inconsistent. At the higher levels, Mimi can sound a little whiny. At the highest, Mimi rates 3 bees, but the frequency is slightly lower than some toys so it might be quieter to some ears.

The buttons are located on a visible control pad on the back of the toy. I personally have no problem pushing these buttons, though I do find them set a bit low. They have plus and minus indications on the buttons that I can feel without looking at them. I love that, since there are 3 buttons, you can cycle through the functions. I don't find this feature necessary, but I'm just so relieved to find a toy that does do this.

Mimi has a magnetic charger (it charges through the buttons, actually). Unlike other magnetic contact toys that I own, the Mimi grabs to its charger and holds on. It can even be suspended by the charger, which means no fear of rolling off and falling or being uncharged when you find it.
Suspended

The Mimi is very discreet and small. Hiding it would be easy, especially in its all black box. Few people would bat an eye. If you really need an excuse, 'massage stone' sounds plausible.
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Multiple settings
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

The Mimi is blessedly easy to care for, without any texture or crevices to attract bacteria -- oh wait, except right at the buttons!
Button crevice

This is exactly where I wouldn't want schmucky stuff to get, i.e., right near the electronics. I have used Mimi in the tub, so she has been fully immersed. So far so good, but I pay extra attention to this region. For the price point and how much I love Mimi, I don't want to ruin her...

The black packaging that Je Joue includes with products is amazing. I love the indent that Mimi nestles in and the way the charger is hidden from view. The original box is truly excellent for gift giving or storage and it will spoil the person who owns it every time they open the box!

Follow-up commentary
I love the MiMi! She has a spot by my bed and everything! I find that I love to use her as a clit stimulator while I'm using a traditional dildo and it's fantastic. I have no problems charging, using the buttons or the functions. And I'm happy to say that I haven't experienced the troubling 'bubbling silicone' problem.

Overall, I'm 100% satisfied. I'd get another because of this great experience! I'm even looking into other Je Joue toys.

    Nice review. I hadn't considered the Mimi much because of the shape. It doesn't look quite pointed enough for me. Then again, I do need power and love that it is silicone, waterproof and rechargeable. Maybe I'll have to reconsider.
