Sex in shower waterproof silicone vibrator - traditional vibrator by Sportsheets - review by PDXlady

Not so great sex in the shower

This vibe was a huge let down. Just about everything about it was either not that great to start with or broke after the first use. The buttons don't work properly anymore, the settings are totally messed up, it won't fully close anymore making it no longer waterproof. The battery housing is a major major pain in the butt. I would not recommend this vibe for anyone.

Use

This vibrator was a giant let down. I really liked that it is made of body safe silicone, waterproof, and sleek looking,(I'm a sucker for a good looking toy). Unfortunately none of this mattered once I actually got to trying it.

It can be used to stimulate the clit or used internally as a traditional vibe. It could also be used to stimulate other parts of the body like nipples or the scrotum for couples' use. I would definitely NOT recommend this for anal insertion (although the vibrations could be used around the anus without insertion) because it has no flared base and it has a really sleek shape. It is waterproof (or at least it starts out that way but I'll get into that later), so it is supposed to be able to be used in the shower or bath, and it's supposed to be fully submersible .

Material / Texture

The insertable end is made of silicone and the end with the buttons is made of hard plastic. The silicone has a bit of drag but not much. The silicone end is a bit bendable but not enough to prevent me from applying pressure. There is a visible seam running along the silicone but it's not very noticeable, although if you're really seam sensitive it could be uncomfortable. There is a really light but not unpleasant smell to it if I hold it right up to my nose and I couldn't notice any taste. Since it is made of silicone it gets a ten on the safety rating scale and it is non-porous.

Design / Shape / Size

This classic vibe has a really sleek design with an hourglass shape with a bulb shape on the end. Just about the only good thing that I can say about it is the look of it. About the top two thirds of the toy is made out of a flexible blue silicone. The bottom third is made out of a hard white plastic with a silver plastic band. There are two buttons on the plastic part that operate the vibrations, or at least that's what they're supposed to do. It's not a very discreet vibe, it'll only take one look to figure out what it is. The bulb part is about 3 inches in circumference with a slight taper, the thinnest part of the vibe is about 2.5 inches in circumference and the insertable length is about 3.5 inches long so it is not by any means a big vibe. The most annoying thing about the design of this vibe has got to be the battery compartment which is damn near impossible to open and close. I don't want to wrestle with my vibrator for 10 minutes before I can use it. Can you say mood killer?

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrations are operated using the two buttons on the hard plastic end. One is a dedicated on/off button and the other button cycles through all of the speeds, low medium and high and then all of the functions of which I can't actually describe because they stopped working properly after the first time I used it. The power button stopped working properly as well to turn it on I have to press the function button and sometimes when it feels like it, it will turn on for me then if I continue to press the function button it will cycle through a whole mess of jumbled up functions and speeds. To turn it off I have to press the power button super hard or unscrew the battery housing if that won't work. The vibration strength is definitely nothing to write home about but it's not the worst I've seen. Considering how light the vibrations are I really would have expected a quieter vibrator. The first time I used it, it was fully submersed under water with the bathroom fan running and my partner was still able to hear it in the other room through a closed door. I'm assuming that all of the settings are all messed up because water got in when I used it in the bath but I'm not sure. It also isn't waterproof at all anymore because for some reason now it won't screw closed tight enough and just a little bit of pressure will create a big opening where water could easily get into the battery housing.

Care and Maintenance

If it says waterproof like it should then it should be super easy to clean. Just run under warm water with antibacterial soap or use a toy cleaner. It seems like some liquids could end up getting lodged in the crack around the silver plastic ring but I didn't have any issues with that. Because mine is no longer waterproof, if I were to still use it (which I don't because it is almost completely useless) I would wipe it off with a toy cleaning wipe or use a toy cleaning spray. It is mostly a silicone toy so it picks up some lint and hair (although not as much as most silicone toys) so I keep it in a drawstring bag. Here is another time that the annoying battery housing is an issue. When I am done, I'm DONE I don't want to be fighting with my toy for 10 minutes just to get the batteries out.
    • Easy to clean

Packaging

Mine came in a plain clear plastic box with no info whatsoever which would have really come in handy to figure out the battery housing issue. Because it is a very obvious vibrator in a clear box it is to say the least not very discreet.

Personal comments

I would never recommend this toy to anyone. If just one thing went wrong I could blame it on a faulty vibe but it seems like everything went wrong with this and even if it was working exactly the way it should (which it did the first time I used it), it still wasn't very impressive. The vibrations were weak and it's really small for insertion. I'm sad to say this vibrator was a big thumbs down, and I was really looking forward to a nice new waterproof vibe.

Experience

I love sex toys that I can use in the bath, I think I was a mermaid in a former life so I was really excited to try a new waterproof vibrator. I only had one waterproof vibe before this one, a simple four speed bullet from Doc Johnson that is back to being my go to bathtub toy. When I first started using it I was thinking "ok, I can deal with this, it's a bit small and weak but it's not too shabby." Then it started to freak out on me, it started turning on and off and changing settings so I gave up on it assuming that the batteries were just dying and that was the problem. Well next time I went to use it with new batteries, I got the same issues and on top of that it wouldn't close properly. Even when it looks totally closed, if I move the top from side to side with even a little pressure the top starts to slip off.

Follow-up commentary
There was absolutely no hope for this thing and I didn't see any point in keeping it around so I trashed it.

    So sorry to hear you had so many issues with this. I reviewed it before, I felt it sucked in the shower, didn't think it was so bad out of the water. Great review overall!

    Yeah it's totally a Lelo knockoff! That's what I thought when I first saw it. I wish I could have found out how well it worked well out of the water
