Change Of "Heart"

Using this vibrator as intended would be nice as a little something extra during couple-sex but will most likely disappoint you during solo-masturbation.

Use

The best way I can describe this cutesy clit vibe is underwhelming. I never had high expectations although I really wanted to like it and gave it many chances to prove itself. It just simply didn't do it for me. Well, that is when it was still fully functional.

Material / Texture

The removable bullet is made of clear ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) the outer part is made of purple TPR (ThermoPlastic Rubber). It has the same feel as jelly without the awful smell and with much less risk of various plastic-derived toxins damaging my girlie bits, or any bits for that matter. TPR is just like TPE but made from rubber instead of elastomer and has a material safety rating of 7 instead of 6. Both are less porous than Cyberskin(2/10) but more porous than silicone(10/10) plus phthalates-free, hypo-allergenic and latex-free.

When I opened the little baggie that comes inside the box, I was very pleasantly surprised that there was no weird smell. No smell at all actually. The back side has a cute little textured flower design on the back but I'd say it's too flat to provide any stimulation. All the glitter that you see in the picture is actually inside the material rather than painted or sprayed on. It's difficult enough to get glitter off me, I can't possibly imagine what I'd have to do to get it out of me.

Design / Shape / Size

For not being a teddy bear or a bunny, this is pretty cute & not at all intimidating. The purple color, the glitter and especially the flowers on it lead me to believe that this is one of those toys where a lot thought was put into how it would look instead of how it would work. The elongated heart shape is 4" long and 2.5" to 3" across, depending on how much you "spread the wings" aka unfold the sides. The heart-shaped designed is supposed to be for full contact but isn't too practical when the vibrations can't easily be felt through them. Same problem with the "raised love nub." It sticks out about a half inch and should provide more pinpoint stimulation but the thickness of the TPR lump fails to conduct the power of the vibrations.

The "tantalizing ticklers" are too short and too soft to tantalize me anywhere downstairs but I love the way they feel upstairs. With or without batteries, just a few strokes awaken my sleeping nipples, getting them ridiculously hard and ready for more. The ticklers are one of the things that make the sleeve superior to the stimulator. I could probably pop in a more reliable bullet with the same one inch circumference if I can find one.

Overall it's a good unobtrusive size that fits easily in the palm of your hand and will suit you whether your clitoris is as small as a dime or as big as a Kennedy half dollar. The size makes it pretty easy to hide and probably nice for travel too, as long as you take the batteries out first.

Functions / Performance / Controls

There are two speeds that are controlled by one button at the top. With the bullet in the sleeve, the vroom of the first setting rates as one & the second rates as two. With the bullet by itself, the vroom of the first setting rates as two & the second rates as three. I'm glad they're separate because the sleeve dulls the vibes a bit, warranting just an "Oh, that's nice" while using it sans sleeve gets a "Mmm, that's good!" (Only four and five elicits an "Ohmigawd! Ohmigawd!") The vibrations seem to be kind of all over the place instead of directed towards one location. For some that might be a pro, as you can use it different ways but it's a con for me because I specifically want to use this as a clitoral vibrator and that requires the power to be pretty concentrated.

I love the idea of the button power control but this one was poorly executed. The clicking noise it makes when you push it sounds like a giant retractable pen and is much louder than the actual motor. The button needs to be pushed harder than most vibe buttons, occasionally causing it to move a bit which can be quite tragic when you have it perfectly placed on just the right spot. Another thing is that it takes a moment for the power to increase when it should increase automatically.

I think that if they made the sleeve a little thinner, the "stimulator" could be a bit bigger and accommodate a more powerful AA battery rather than the AAA battery that it holds now.

My number one complaint about this is how frequently it would stall or just stop working altogether. No matter how strong or weak the vibrations regularly are, I can't be satisfied by something that just gives up on me. I could often get it working again by pressing it quite hard but as you can imagine, that wasn't a huge improvement.

It's advertised as waterproof and probably is but my overall disappointment in it prevented me from testing in out in the shower/bath tub.

Care and Maintenance

I don't recommend sharing this as the shape and size make it unfit for a condom and you should always use condoms on any toy that's being shared. Boiling this or anything else made of TPR won't sanitize it. Wash it with warm water & mild soap or toy cleaner.

Packaging

Telling you what the box says verbatim may not be all that interesting, but it's accurate and I find it to helpful when reading reviews.

    I wonder if the metal battery contacts aren't making connection with the top of the batteries? I had a vibe that did this, once. It helped to bend the tabs down so they came into contact more consistently with the batteries. Hope this helps so you might get better use out of it. Smile

    I'm sorry this one took so long to get out. I've been sick a lot lately to the point where I can't even sit at a desk and type.
