Oh Uma, How Did I Ever Live Without You?

If there's one toy that I can't live without, it's Uma! Looking at her, you wouldn't think she'd be much -- but oh WOW does she ever pack a punch! Powerful, waterproof, multispeed, rechargeable... what's not to love? This is a toy that everyone should try at least once!

Use

Uma is a great little toy with multiple uses.

You can, of course, use Uma vaginally. Her curved shape is great for g-spot stimulation, and the firmness of her body enables me to apply just the right amount of pressure when using her for this purpose. When using her vaginally, you have a few choices of how to use her. You can rock with her, or you can use her for thrusting. You could even just lay back and enjoy the vibrations. All of these uses feel amazing.

You can also use Uma for clitoral stimulation -- which is one of my favorite ways to use Uma. I like having the long handle to hold onto while I hold her head on my clitoris. Also, Uma's head allows me to apply pin-point stimulation to my clitoris.

Uma should not be used anally. This is because she does not have a flared base. That said, you can still use her to stimulate your anal opening -- just don't insert her.

Uma is also waterproof, so you can take her to the bathtub for some fun.

Material / Texture

Uma is made of food-grade silicone. Silicone, which rates as a 10 on Eden Fantasy's safety scale, is one of the safest materials for sex toys. This material is rated so highly for a few reasons: it's hypo-allergenic, latex free, phtalates free, and completely non-porous. You'd be hard pressed to find a material more body safe than this!

The silicone on this toy is extremely thin, and is laid over a very firm base. This means that this toy has no "give" to it. You can't bend it, and it's not plushy at all. For me, this is a good thing, as the thin layer of silicone seems to make the vibrations feel stronger. It also enables me to apply more pressure where I need it.

While this toy is not plushy at all, it is still a very soft toy. The silicone is soft and silky, with absolutely no drag. There is also no seam on this toy -- which is a good thing, as seams can sometimes be annoying and hard to clean. The texture of this toy is completely smooth, and suitable for both beginners and advanced users.

As far as taste and smell goes? I noticed a faint smell to the toy, but it's slightly hard to describe what it is. To me, it smells very sweet -- but again, it is a very faint smell, and I can only smell it when I hold it directly under my nose. This toy does also have a slight taste to it, but again, it is difficult to describe. That said, the taste is not at all strong, or unpleasant.

Design / Shape / Size

Uma is a fairly small vibrator, so she's probably not the best choice for size queens. She is only about 7" long, with 4" of that being insertable. She is about 1.25" in diameter at her head, and a total of .75" at her narrowest. Her base is slightly larger than her head.

Now I know that 4", and only 1.25" at the thickest insertable width does not sound like much, but trust me -- Uma left me feeling full.

Uma's design is pretty basic. She's curved in the middle for g-spot stimulation. The trouble with this is that the curve is just not going to be enough for some women. She may also not be long enough to reach some women's g-spots. For me, she hit the spot just right -- but every women is different.

If you need discretion, you will want to keep in mind that Uma is not really discreet. Uma does not look like a penis, but it's still fairly obvious that she's a sex toy. That said, she is small enough to hide, and I would have absolutely no problem traveling with her.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Uma is a rechargeable toy, which means that you don't need to worry about batteries. Charging Uma is easy to do -- you simply plug in the travel adapter, and then connect the adapter to the magnetic travel port on the toy itself. After about two hours of charging, Uma will be fully charged. She should then be good for around two hours of playtime.

Now, the controls themselves? The buttons are located at the end of Uma's handle. There are three buttons; the on button (+), the pattern button (~), and the off button (-). In the beginning, I found the buttons to be sort of hard to push, but now I find them to be extremely easy to push. The hardest button for me is the pattern button, but that is probably because I don't use that particular button very often.

Anyway, to turn Uma on, you'll want to hold the (+) button for about 5 seconds. You can then press the plus button again to increase the speed of vibration. There are a total of five steady vibration levels -- obviously with the fifth level being the most powerful. If you decide that you want to decrease the vibrations, simply press the (-) button. To turn the toy completely off, hold the (-) button down for about 5 seconds.

I would rate the lowest vibration level as being around a 3, and the highest at being a 5. As far as the noise level goes, I would give the highest vibration level three vrooms. It's pretty quiet, but still loud for a luxury toy. Still, it's quiet enough that I have no problem using this with other people in the house.

Now the patterns... I'm not one for patterns, but for those of you that are? No worries - this toy offers seven of them for you! First of course there's the steady vibration pattern (my personal favorite), but you will also get to experience patterns with throbbing, pulsating, and/or escalating, if that's your preference.

This toy functions amazingly, both in and out of water. I was originally afraid that water would get inside of Uma and ruin her controls, but I am happy to report that I have fully submerged Uma multiple times without a single problem.

Care and Maintenance

Uma is so easy to care for! She's waterproof, so you don't need to worry about water getting into the wrong areas and ruining your new favorite toy. Instead, you can wash her easily with antibacterial soap (or a toy cleaner) and water, without the worries. Does it get any easier than that?

For those who are used to boiling silicone toys... I wouldn't recommend boiling Uma, or putting her in the dishwasher. This is because Uma has a motor, and doing so may ruin the motor.

As far as lubricant goes, you'll want to stick with water-based lubricant. This is because silicone lubricant may interact badly with the silicone material.


Once you're done with playtime, you're going to need to store her some place. You can store her in the packaging that she came in, or you can simply store her in a pouch inside a toy box or a dresser drawer. I personally store Uma in a pouch in my toy box as I felt that the original box took up more space than is needed. Unfortunately Uma did not come with a pouch of her own, so I had to provide one for her.

    • Easy to store

Packaging

Uma came packaged very elegantly. Firstly, there is the outer box. The outer box is not discreet as it does have a picture, as well as information about the toy, on it. Thankfully the outer box is easily removable. Once you do remove the outer box, you will see a gorgeous black box with Je Joue's logo on it. The black box is very discreet, and I would have no problem leaving it out in the open.

When you look inside of the black box, you'll find that Uma rests nicely in a spot made just for her. You'll also find that there is a little spot just for her adapter. This box is great for storage, but for me? It took up more space than I had to spare.
Follow-up commentary
Oh, how I LOVE Uma. After all this time, Uma is still my go-to vibrator. I have used her many, many times and she is still just powerful as before. Further, she still looks absolutely amazing.

If anything should ever happen to Uma, I would gladly purchase another one. In fact, I've thought about buying a back up, just in case.

    Well, since my followup review, Uma broke... in less than a year. It's supposed to be covered by a warranty, but Je Joue does not return e-mails, so the warranty is pretty much useless. I'm definitely not happy about this...

    Still, Uma was brilliant while she lasted.
