Purple PleaserThis vibrator manages to combine a nice variety of settings, fairly strong vibrations and quiet operation in one little sleek design. It didn't make me see stars, but overall it is a nice quality toy with almost no faults.
This toy seems much less prone to collecting dust and pet hair than most others, thanks to the surface not being sticky or tacky at all.
Given that this toy is basically hard plastic, there is no flexibility to it, so it isn't going to curve to fit your shape any more than it already is.
This is a pretty discreet toy, if I didn't know what it was, I might assume it was the remote control to some fancy gadget. Anyone that spends a lot of time around sex toys would probably guess its function quickly, but the average Joe probably won't instantly think sex if they see it.
This is a good choice for travel, thanks to its small, lightweight size and not super obvious shape. It takes up barely more room than a bullet or egg vibe, but offers more variety than most its size.
There's a small door for the batteries on the back of the toy that you lift a little tab on and slide off. I had a LOT of trouble getting this open the first time, but it becomes less tricky with some practice. You are probably going to need at least some length to your fingernails to open the latch, though, since you need to be able to hook your nail under the latch to pop it open.
The toy is about 4 inches long in total, and will fit in the palm of the average-sized hand. The product info page says 2 1/2 inches are insertable, which basically means you could insert it up to the control panel if you like.
When you click the on button, both buttons light up with red light, making it easy to tell if you have accidentally left this toy on. One great thing about needing to click both "on" and the function button to start the vibrations is that it is less likely the toy will turn itself on by accident if it is in your suitcase or somewhere else it might get bumped around.
There are 7 different vibration patterns, which are as follows:
1-Low, steady vibration I'd rate this about 2/5 vrooms, one and a half bees. This easily blends in with the sound of an air conditioner running, for instance.
2-Medium steady vibration, about 3 vrooms, 2 bees.
3-High steady vibration, about 3 3/4 vrooms, 3 bees. Not super intense, but gets the job done.
4-Escalating vibration- the vibrations build from low to high intensity. Rather than being a smooth incline in power, it is a sort of bumpy one that reminds me a little of a broken down car trying to start, if that makes sense.
5- Long Pulses- 2 bees, 3 vrooms. If I were illustrating these, it would be ___, ___, ___.
6-Shorter quicker pulses- 2 bees, 3 vrooms. These are more - - - -.
7-Alternating pulse- This setting goes short, short, short, long. Again about 2 bees, 3 vrooms.
Each time you turn the vibrator off and back on, it starts back at 1.
You have a little bit of variety in noise level depending on which setting you pick, but overall it is a pretty quiet toy. A thick blanket and a little soft background music will pretty much totally mask the sound.
The vibrations are primarily located in the small "head" part of the toy, but carry throughout the rest of the body a bit. I am a little disappointed that there isn't really a pinpoint where they're strongest for when you want intense stimulation, but that's one of very few complaints, and not a huge deal.
The toy runs on 2 AAA batteries, and even with the batteries inserted is nice and light. I tried to think of something to compare it to weight-wise, but all I cam come up with is that it is less than a small cell phone, but more than a lipstick. On a super-girly weight scale, I'd rate this about 2-3 lipsticks in weight, because that's what I had within arm's reach for comparison.
This vibe comes in pink, purple and black. Mine is purple, a nice deep, rich shade that almost seems like it should smell like grape if I sniff it.
Although you can insert a couple of inches of this toy, I'm reporting from a standpoint of having used it almost totally clitorally, since inserting something so small really does almost nothing for me. If you get a lot of pleasure from vibrations in the first inch or two of the vagina, this may rock your world, but if you need deeper penetration, you can always pair this with an insertable vibe or dildo.
I have to admit that I didn't test this in water, please don't hate me and throw things. The packaging claims this toy is waterproof, but I just don't trust it. There is no watertight seal around the battery door, so although the crack there is small, I have a feeling it wouldn't take all that long for water to find its way in. Hopefully someone braver than I will put this to the test and report back, but I'm skeptical. Too skeptical to risk a toy I've grown pretty fond of.
I actually really like this for relaxing my neck muscles, too. The smooth texture makes it glide over the skin easily, and the mediumish vibrations are just right for relaxing sore muscles.
