My Matte Buddy

Overall, despite some interesting design flaws, I like this vibrator. It is glass and, unlike most glass toys, it is matte. This creates a rather unique feeling that I find interesting. It has three settings and is waterproof.

Use

This vibrator is great for vaginal masturbation or play with a partner. It is a shorter toy, so you don't have to worry about your loved one bruising your cervix. It is a glass toy with a matte finish and it vibrates. It is waterproof and has three levels of vibrations. Being waterproof, you can soak it in warm or cold water for temperature play as well. Since it is glass it will feel larger than it actually is. At its widest point it is 1.5 inches. I think this will work great for those who like firmer toys, don't mind the girth, and don't mind that it is shorter than the average vibrator.

Material / Texture

This vibrator is made out of glass with a matte finish. Between the finish, the material, and the girth this toy feels much wider than it actually is. The texture adds a large amount of extra drag; you will need a sincere amount of lube if you wish to actually use this toy. In addition to the matte finish, the toy has three raised almost bulb like sections to it. They come out more to an angle, just like in the picture. Since they are so close together the whole toy almost feels the same width, but the shape makes the toy extremely noticeable the entire time you use it.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

I wish this toy was longer. Other than that I like the design for the most part. When using this toy, it's very easy to accidentally press the button on the end. If you are on the third setting this will turn the toy off for you, which can be disappointing to say the least. The end of the toy is very hard and small to grab, so between this and the matte texture of the toy, it is very hard to thrust with. I wish the base was larger or had some easy way to hold onto it. On the end of the toy is a button that you press to turn the toy on, access all three speeds, and turn the toy off. The vibration levels start out mild and top out at medium, but they are sufficient. Don't get me wrong, I would not complain if the vibrations were two or three times strong. Even with the weird design issues, I still like this toy.
    • Whimsical / artistic

Functions / Performance / Controls

This toy works well and serves its purpose. There is one motor somewhere in the shaft; I can't tell where because the vibrations travel very well throughout. I don't like the two lower vibration settings because they just feel lacking, but I do like the highest setting. The toy is easy to turn on and off, but it is also very easy to accidentally turn off during use due to the placement of the button. The toy is very quiet. I would not worry about anyone hearing it outside of my room. It says it's waterproof, and this seems to be true. I let it soak in the sink while I used another toy and the waterproof seal held up just fine.
    • Discreet sound
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

This toy is very easy to take care of since it is glass and waterproof. I just wash mine with soap and water, then dry it and(for now) I store it in it's box. I wish it came with some sort of storage baggie because the toy is glass. Once I get a storage baggie for it I will store it that way. Being glass, this toy is compatible with any lube you wish to use.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

It showed up in one of those clear plastic display cases that is very typical of Doc Johnson. The packaging honestly sucks. This toy is matte white glass. The vibrator rubbed against the side of the packaging during shipping in a bad way. All of the widest points of the toy were covered in coloring from the inside of the plastic box. I had to spend a half hour scrubbing the toy to get these marks off.
Follow-up commentary
I still like this one, but the design is a bit girthy, and the lack of a good way to grab on to it has been bothering me. I wish it was a little less wide since it is made of glass. The vibrations are only really nice on the top setting, but I still like this one since it is glass and it vibrates. I don't go to it very often though.

    I can't believe the packaging rubbed off on the glass! I hate all that cheap plastic packaging myself. Good review!

    lol, I know. It was such a pain. It's all good though. I actually just found some spare bubble wrap to put around the toy in the box till I get a storage bag for it.

    Great review! I have never owned a matte glass toy. I had a dildo way back when that had a matte feeling where you held it, but that was about it. I totally agree with Miss Nessa that it looks like a light bulb!
