Rotating Rabbit RubberCal Exotics Love Diamond is not your average "rabbit" vibrator. Instead of rotating beads, the Love Diamond's insertable shaft swivels and rotates, producing a unique feeling unlike anything I've personally experienced before. Sadly, the clitoral arm is very buzzy and the entire toy is quite loud, which detracted from my overall experience. If you can get past the noise and buzz, this might be the "rabbit" for you, though!
The Love Diamond is designed for vaginal insertion. While the clitoral arm and base do provide somewhat of a stopping point if used anally, the material of the toy is not entirely non-porous, so a condom and care should be used if anal play is attempted. A condom should also be used if sharing the toy.
The plastic is of course hard, firm and inflexible. The TPR of the shaft and clitoral arm are very squishy and pliable. The clitoral arm is also quite flexible and can be bent back from the toy with ease to make insertion of the toy easier.
There is a pronounced head on the toy, with slight wrinkles on the backside, a "band" that wraps around the back for the "diamond ring", and slight raised "fingers" extending from the clitoral arm. All of that texture is very slight and I personally could not feel any of it internally (though the "fingers" are very low on the toy - below the clitoral arm - and were not inserted). On the front underneath the head is the "gem" inserted into the toy material. On the outside of the toy, over the "gem", is a raised bump with facets to imitate the "gem". This texture I was able to feel internally as it rubbed against my G-spot (I wasn't able to feel the actual "gem", however).
The toy has a very slight odor to it from the TPR material. After several washings, I could smell my soap more than the material. There is no taste to the toy. But there is a bit of drag to the toy and it will pick up lint and hairs very easily.
The overall shape and design of the toy is reminiscent of other typical "rabbit" style toys (with the exception of the "fingers" instead of an animal clitoral arm). What makes it different is what it does... which I will get into below.
The Love Diamond would be suitable for beginners and more advanced users alike and I think with the clitoral arm being so flexible, that this should fit many anatomies. Storing it in its original packaging doesn't make it easy to hide or to travel with, so a toy pouch or other storage method would make that easier. The sound alone that this thing makes wouldn't make this an ideal travel companion, unless you don't mind everyone knowing what you are doing.
Measurements for the Love Diamond are:
Insertable Length: 5 1/2"
-Of shaft: 4 1/2"
-Over "gem" area: 5"
-Of clitoral arm: 3"
-Of shaft: 1 1/4"
-Over "gem" area: 1 1/2"
In the above photos, you can see the size of the toy in my hand, the clitoral arm, gem, external gem texture, how flexible the clitoral arm is, and in the last, how squishy the material is between my fingers.
On the front of the control panel are 6 buttons. The uppermost button turns the toy on and off, and a red light indicates that the toy is on. Below the on/off button are the operating buttons; the up and down arrows on the right operate the clitoral arm, the ones on the left operate the rotating shaft and the "F" button in the middle cycles through the functions. There are also two red lights (one above each set of arrow buttons) to indicate when the clitoral arm and shaft are on.
Clicking the up arrow buttons on either side turns the clitoral portion or shaft on at their lowest setting. Each one has 8 different intensities of vibration or rotation, from slight or slow to strong and fast. The "F" function button has three settings: steady vibration (for the clitoral arm) and steady rotation (for the shaft), long vibration with a pulse and a full rotation counter-clockwise before changing direction for a full rotation clockwise, and a quick vibration and pulse with a half rotation in either direction. The pulsation of the clitoral arm is in sync with the changing of direction of the shaft.
The box says that the toy has 200 patterns, etc. What that means is that all the vibration intensities, rotation speeds and the three functions combined will add up and give you all those different patterns. There aren't actually 200 patterns available by clicking the "F" button. Combine a low vibration of the clitoral arm with a fast rotation speed and the half rotation (and pulsation) in each direction and you've got yourself a pattern! Continue as such and see where it takes you. The rotation and vibration can also be used separately and independently from one another as well, or you can simply shut one of them off.
The entire clitoral arm vibrates and is quite buzzy, rather than deep and rumbly. But the strongest vibrations can be felt at the very tip of the arm (or hand). The entire shaft above the base rotates, though I personally noticed when inserting that the outer base rotated as well and I had to hold it tightly to focus more of that rotation internally.
This is absolutely not a quiet toy at all! When both the clitoral arm and shaft rotation are turned up all the way, it can easily be heard through a closed door. Shutting the clitoral arm off barely made a dent in the sound, the rotating shaft is definitely the loudest part of the toy. Shutting the shaft off, I turned the clitoral arm up all the way and that portion was quiet and could not be heard through a door. Inserting the toy doesn't muffle the sound, either. The portion of the toy that makes the sound is what operates it... the base. Since that part is not inserted, it can very easily be heard and is quite loud.
Both water and silicone lubes are compatible with the Love Diamond. The original packaging can be used for storage if you have the space, though I personally hand sew drawstring pouches for all my toys that don't come with one.
The packaging would do for storage or gift giving. I feel that if you are comfortable enough to give someone a sex toy, the packaging shouldn't matter. Personally, I'd rather receive something in its original packaging and toss it at my discretion.
I had some initial fears about the hard "gem" imbedded into the toy. I do not like texture or hard bits rubbing or being inserted inside of me and I worried that the "gem" would be painful. Thankfully it is not! The shaft of the Love Diamond is very squishy and I could barely feel the gem's hardness while pushing on it. Thankfully again, the texture over top of the gem actually feels nice rubbing against my G-spot.
Because I've never successfully used a rabbit toy with rotating beads, I can't compare that feeling to the feeling of the entire swiveling shaft of this toy. But I can say that it definitely is a unique experience. I'm used to thrusting and tapping, that is what my G-spot likes and responds to. I wasn't sure whether I would like the rubbing on my G-spot before using the Love Diamond, but I enjoyed it. This isn't a "wham bam, thank you ma'am" type of toy. It definitely takes a bit more time for me to work up to an orgasm with G-spot rubbing rather than thrusting. If you're the same, you'll really want to take some time and enjoy the ride because I didn't find this to be an instant orgasm machine.
As for the clitoral arm... I could take or leave it. I prefer deep, rumbly and quite powerful vibrations on my clit or it will do nothing for me. While I was able to position it so it hit where I wanted, the buzzy vibrations weren't really my thing. However, the clitoral arm is very flexible and far-reaching, so I feel most users will benefit from its placement.
My favorite part of this toy is definitely the swiveling, rotating shaft and the textured nub over the gem (though I personally couldn't really feel the actual gem all that much). Sadly, inserting the toy caused the outer control base to rotate as well. I don't think I'm overly tight, but I had to hold the base firmly to direct most of the rotating inside. Also, that control base is what houses the motor and what makes all the noise, so this is a very loud toy. The sound doesn't really distract me from playing, but I definitely have to make sure I have quite a bit of privacy when I whip this toy out.
As a first rabbit, I enjoyed this toy as much as I could. It doesn't produce instant orgasms and its noise will keep it from being used often. While it took more time to climax, I preferred using it without turning the clitoral arm on. The swiveling shaft is a unique sensation that I think a lot of women would enjoy. But overall, I can honestly only give this toy three stars. It is a little expensive and its material is not the absolute safest, plus it requires batteries and is very loud. I don't hate this toy, but I don't love it. The interesting sensation of the rotating shaft isn't enough to overcome the noise and buzzy clitoral arm... I like to be able to use my toys whenever I want, not only when I'm home alone (which is hardly ever).
