Surprisingly, the Vr6.5 doesn't get 5 stars.I was expecting quite a lot from this toy. I'd had it on my wishlist for sometime, and I had to save up for a while just to get it. It is now the most expensive toy I own, and to be honest, I'm not sure it was really worth the price. I was torn between a few Jopen rabbits and decided this design looked best for me. While it certainly has several pros, for $141.99 I was expecting MUCH more.
I've found that this is great for g-spot stimulation, more so than any other toy I've ever had. The shape and size are perfect for g-spot stimulation, and it's not so rigid that it's painful or over-stimulating.
It is waterproof, so it is fine for tub/pool/shower play, and since it is so quiet it is great for those who live with roommates. It is very travel-friendly, as the the toy can be "locked" so it doesn't start buzzing if you're traveling with it! I think this is great because I've been in situations where I put a toy in my bag and the dial gets nudged or the button is pushed, and next thing I know my purse is buzzing! I think this is the first locking toy I have, and I really like that feature.
This silicone is less sticky feeling to the touch than other silicone toys I have. This is has more of a velvety texture than a sticky feeling to it. Still, it does pick up dust and hair pretty easily, but that is to be expected with silicone. It's completely smooth, there is no texture. It is great for beginners or advanced users. I would consider this to be more of a g-spot toy with some clitoral stimulation than an exciting rabbit, if that makes any sense. This is different from other rabbits I've owned.
There are only 2 buttons, one that corresponds to the clitoral arm, and the other to the shaft. That keeps things pretty simple, though I could see them being a bit difficult to operate if lube got them slippy, especially since they are pretty close to each other.
The size of this toy surprised me. Every other rabbit I've had in the past was pretty big, considering the handle and the insertable portion of the toy. This rabbit is fairly small, but that is not to say the size is a problem for me. If you prefer longer insertable toys, then you might want something else. The total toy length is 6 1/2" inches, and 4 1/2" of that are insertable. The shaft is fairly thick in the middle, 4 3/4" inches at it's widest point. That width and the shape together really work well for g-spot stimulation for me.
The design is not really whimsical or realistic at all. Maybe it looks somewhat futuristic, since it looks so sleek. The looks is not totally discreet, but it doesn't look exactly like your typical classic rabbit in terms of shape or size, so that could makes it more discreet than many others I've seen and owned.
Here it is compared to the Silicone Finger Bunny, PicoBong Ako, and the Virgo Astrovibe:
When it is completely charged, the light stops glowing. I was really eager to finally try mine out, so I was happy when I saw that it took about and hour and a half before the charging light went off. The charge seems to last for a while, I used mine for at least an hour and I didn't notice the vibrations weakening at any point. Though, I do with the vibrations were stronger and more rumbly than buzzy, in the first place. The toy is not as powerful as I would expect it to be, the vibrations are weaker than all of my other vibrators. In fact, and this sounds crazy but it's true...I think I even have bullets that feel stronger or are at less buzzy, than this toy's clitoral arm. The toy itself is surprisingly quiet when turned on, even with both vibrations at their strongest. I think it is even more quiet when actually inserted.
There are only two buttons on this toy. With them, you can individually control the vibrations in the clitoral arm and the shaft. Also, the toy can be locked by holding both buttons for 4 seconds. So convenient! If you press either button one time while the toy is on, the vibrations will turn off completely to the corresponding part. That could get frustrating if you accidentally bump a button in the middle of use, as there is not much of a handle to hold on to so if you are using this with a partner that could pose even more of a problem. I use it while laying on my stomach, and I bumped the buttons a couple of times, and accidentally pressed the opposite button a few times since they are so close and can easily get confused if you don't see what you're doing.
It is silicone and waterproof, but it is also a vibe and has motors that could get damaged so it should not be boiled or put in the dishwasher. It is recommended to clean it with soap and water, but any toy cleaner/wipes that you are comfortable with would be fine as well. Remember, silicone is 100% non-porous, so this is easy to clean and you don't have to worry about bacteria staying on or in the toy. If you wanted to, you could even clean this with a 10% bleach solution. However you choose to clean it, make sure you let it air dry or dry it off with a clean towel before you put it away.
Since it is silicone, use it with water-based lubricants only! Do not use with silicone lubes.
The toy comes with a one year warranty.
This toy came to me packaged in a Jopen box, that was sealed in plastic. The box makes this look presentable and nice to give as a gift, it looks sleek and classy. It could be kept for storage if you really wanted, but the toy also comes with a nice pouch that makes the box unnecessary to keep. I love that it comes with a pouch!
The back of the box included of a list of features that this toy has:
The inside also comes with a list of features:
And it comes with a booklet that shows each Jopen vibe, and how to operate them. It comes with instructions for each Vanity vibe, which is nice and you can look at it and compare the differences in functions that each of them has.
Here's hoping I can find a good silicone rabbit in the near future...maybe I'll give one of the more traditional-looking Jopen rabbits on my wishlist a shot...if I can save up for it!
Well, I contacted Vibetronics, they told me to make sure that I registered the product so it would be covered under the warranty. I did that, which was a very simple and instant online process. The woman that contacted me about the problem from Vibetronics told me to clean the toy off, put it in a box with the pouch, charger (really whatever I had that it came with) and ship it out to Vibetronics in California. She added that the $10 check that would usually need to be included was being waived by her personally, but to include a note saying that she had waived the return shipping charge. I paid to send it off, they would not cover shipping to have it sent out, though it turned out to be like $3 to ship which was not that bad. I just got my replacement in the mail, a week after I sent the broken Jopen to them. I charged this one up and it seems to be working fine. Brand new Jopen in a brand new box. I'm pretty pleased with the way this was handled and how quickly I got a reply from Vibetronics about having an issue with the product... Hopefully this one doesn't develop any issues!
Overall, I like the product, though as I originally wrote in my review, there are some things that could be better. I expect something perfect for the price it costs. However, just as I got to like it more, I noticed that it was torn! For me, that is a really big deal. Not only did this cost a lot, but I am infection prone. That is really not safe, and could end up costing me a fair amount in visits to the clinic and medication. Basically, I have mixed feelings about this product.
