Not so much a friend but a very passing acquaintance...I did not expect a whole lot from this toy due to its size and price point, but even so, I was seriously disappointed! It burns through batteries like a forest fire, and the vibrations are seriously weak. I do however, love the shape and texture of the sleeve, so I will be on the lookout for another better bullet to try with the sleeve.
The vibrations from the bullet are very weak, and despite the weak performance, this little friend burns through batteries faster than a forest fire. The bullet runs on watch batteries, which is also another strike against this toy as I always prefer something I can run on rechargeable batteries, especially if the toy burns through batteries quickly.
The silicone sleeve has potential. It is textured, which is what appealed to me in the first place with this toy. Silicone is of course, body safe and easy to sanitize, and this particular silicone is amply firm and pleasant to the touch. The curve of the toy is perfect for g-spotting, if only the vibrations were strong enough to feel.
Unfortunately, I did not have a better bullet that was the right size to fit in the sleeve, so I have not been able to see if the sleeve could be more enjoyable with a better vibe.
The toy is very small and discreet, which would make it nice for someone in a shared living environment or for travel.
Being that the sleeve on this toy is silicone, it is highly recommended that you use a non-silicone lubricant, as silicone lubes can deteriorate or "melt" silicone toys. Being that the toy is very small, lube most likely will not be a huge issue, but if needed, a water based lube would be best.
This is a tiny little toy measuring: 2 1/4" in length and 1" in diameter. The little loop fits perfectly on my finger, and the length is also just right to hold on to. While finger vibes such as this one are usually designed for use externally on the clit, nipples, penis, etc., this little friend is also perfectly shaped for g-spot play, at least for my anatomy. The small size makes it perfect for keeping tucked away in your purse, pillow case, or for travel. It would be very easy to hide if that is an issue for you.
Even before the batteries started to dwindle, I was barely able to feel the vibrations at all through the sleeve. I did try removing the bullet from the sleeve and the bullet by itself did have a good bit of intensity for the short time that the batteries lasted.
For its size and power, I felt that the bullet was very loud. Holding it in my hand it could easily be heard through a door. The sound was diminished a bit when pressed against my body, but it was still louder than most of the other bullets I own.
The toy is made to be waterproof, but due to its short battery life it didn't live long enough for me to try out in the water.
