Petite and Gentle

The Petit Ami provides gentle vibrations that are good for all-over body massage. Though it was not stimulating enough to provide an orgasm, it was definitely pleasant to use during foreplay.

Use

The Petit Ami is listed as a "clitoral stimulator," but it actually makes a pleasant all-over body massager for foreplay as well. The vibrations can be felt all over the body, but are quite mild, so it would be best for those who prefer gentle vibrations on the clitoris (similar to a pager or cellphone's vibrations). It is *not* designed for internal use.

Material / Texture

Made of hard ABS plastic with a completely smooth surface, the Petit Ami glides easily over your skin. ABS plastic is odorless, phthalate-free and non-porous; a material safe enough that it is also used to make certain childrens' toys.

Design / Shape / Size

This egg-shaped slimline toy measures approx. 3" long x 1-3/4" wide and is only around 1/2" thick, making it easy to cup in your palm while your hand roams. Being so small, you can take it practically anywhere, simply by slipping it into your pocket. It certainly wouldn't be hard to conceal within your home, though with its discreet design and pretty floral decor, it isn't likely that too many people would know what it was even if you left it out somewhere.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Petit Ami is constructed in two separate halves, which are held together by tiny screws on the bottom and leaves a seam line around the outer edge of the toy. Apparently those halves flex a bit, even though that movement isn't visible, because if you apply very much pressure to the toy when using it you can hear the motor slow down. It does take a fair bit of pressure to produce this result, but we thought it worth mentioning to people who might be inclined to push harder to try to get stronger vibrations from it.

There is a snap-on flap on the back of the toy that opens to house one AAA battery, which is not included. On the side, there is a small rubber push button to turn it on and off. The vibrations are felt all over the toy, and the motor does make a fair bit of noise. It's not drastically loud, but it might be heard from right outside your bedroom door, like the sound of a small electric razor.

Care and Maintenance

Because the battery compartment is located more off to one side of the bottom and NOT in the slightest bit watertight, we found that you can't use any running water to wash this toy. You'll need to wipe it with a rag dipped in either antibacterial hand soap or alcohol, and then follow up with a damp rag. We would suggest removing the battery first, and then double-checking to make sure the compartment is dry before you put it back in.
You may also want to be careful if you decide to use lube with this toy for the same reason but, if you do decide to lube up, the Petit Ami is compatible with both water-based and silicone-based lubes, as well as massage oils.

Packaging

The Petit Ami comes in a very thin clear plastic box with some product information printed on the back. There's a thin plastic slide-out tray that has an indention in it for the toy to rest in. We wouldn't consider it a permanent "storage box" so to say, because it doesn't seem like something that would last too long, but if you're careful with it you could probably keep the toy in it for quite some time.

Experience

Michele says:
If you're like me and need medium to strong clitoral vibrations to orgasm, you won't get the "big O" from this toy. However, it was very nice to use as an erotic massage tool, particularly on the breasts, thighs, and outer labia.

Alan says:
I liked the shape & size of this toy, because it's easy to cup in your hand while caressing your partner all over. When applied to the perineum and testicular area, it was pleasant but not hugely arousing, so I'd call it more of a "teaser" than anything. It's also not what I'd call a "high-quality" toy, but it's worth the price you'd pay for it if for nothing more than to provide a new sensation during gentle foreplay.
Follow-up commentary
Sadly enough we don't really use this toy very much anymore, but it's not from any fault in the Petit Ami at all. The toy performs exactly as it did when it was new, both in terms of vibration and noise levels, and the battery lasts a really long time. It turned out to be great for those impromptu shoulder or foot massages in the middle of the day... if only we could remember to reach for it more often!

    I have the regular Oui from the same line and love it for massage, although I don't even bother trying to use it to get off. Seems like this one is basically the same. Thanks for the review!

    Me neither. Lately I've found it's very best use is for achy shoulders (lol). Thanks for mentioning the Oui though, because I had seen that and wondered if it would be better for the intended use than the Petit was.

    I love the duo person review too! The entire time I have been writing reviews I have tried to convey the opinion of both my boyfriend and I. I am going to see if I can actually get him involved in the reviewing process!
  • Alan & Michele

    LOL! Well I had to bribe Alan at first to get him to do it, but he really enjoys the writing now. Too bad I can't get him more involved in the forums though-- I think he'd have fun there.

    I agree, the two of you doing the reviews is a huge help. My husband wnats nothign to do with this so I'm off trying to find things for both of us. Alan you mentioned using this on your testicular area and was not that thrilled. Can you suggest a vibe that does?

    I would suggest that he try the Bgee by Bswish. I don't know how to make a link on here but I know Eden Fantasys carries them. It's shaped and textured very well for the job and has multiple speeds so he can experiment and figure out what he likes most.
