Sweet (Dial-a-) DreamsWith its uniquely shaped head, the Dial-a-Dream #94 is a neat little addition to your toy collection. But with its less than impressive curve, this G-spot toy doesn't quite come close without some work.
I would advise that only those more experienced with anal play use it in such a fashion because there is no flared base.
The package states that this toy is made from silicone, and the product page clarifies that this is TPR silicone (a silicone based rubber compound). TPR silicone rates a 6 on Eden's material safety scale. Thus, a water based lubricant should be used with this toy.
There's a slight normal silicone toy smell if you hold it up to your nose but nothing overwhelming, and there's no taste.
You can store the toy in the packaging it came in, but I find doing this rather bothersome and prefer slipping this into a pouch instead. This is also easy to travel with. Just be sure to remove the batteries first.
The specs for this toy are:
Insertable Length: 6"
Circumference: 4 1/2"
Diameter: 1 1/2"
The box also states that this toy is waterproof. On the back of the package, there's a sticker placed next to the waterproof mark stating "MUST CLOSE CAP TIGHTLY". After inserting the batteries, I closed the cap tightly, and the vibrator would not turn on. Loosening the cap slightly, it finally turned on. It seems that tightening the cap all the way prevented the batteries from connecting to the plates in the cap. I did not use this toy in or near water because I couldn't tighten it all the way and have the toy actually work.
The Dial-a-Dream #94 takes two AAA batteries (which are not included), and inserting them is a little hit or miss. Upon unscrewing the cap, there are no markings telling you which direction to insert the batteries. Your best bet is to slip them in, screw on the cap, and try to turn the toy on.
I did find the control dial easy to turn while using the toy, but I needed no lube to insert this toy so my fingers where dry. Keeping a small towel nearby would be helpful if you find turning the dial difficult with lubed up or wet fingers.
The #94 is a steady vibration toy with no patterns. Turning the dial turns the toy on and increases the power, and turning it back decreases the power and shuts it off. I honestly couldn't really tell the difference between Low or High. There was only a slight power increase in the buzzy vibrations and a most definite increase in noise.
This toy doesn't come with a storage pouch. You can store this in its original packaging, but it is clear and not very discreet. I store mine in a pouch because I found the plastic packaging difficult to get into quickly during 'the heat of the moment'.
Even though the packaging is clear, it is pretty and would make a nice gift. "Dial a Dream" is on the front. Also on the front are the words "Waterproof", "Now Virtually Silent", "Silicone", "All New Dial Control", and "DocJohnson.com". All of these words are surrounded by swirls, curlie cues, and other designs. On the back, it says "Hygienically safe silicone vibrator. Waterproof and multispeed easy grip dial controller." in English and four other languages. Stated again is "Waterproof", "Multispeed", and that this toy requires 2 AAA batteries (not included).
There were no instructions on the box nor an instruction sheet inside. There is a 90 day Limited Warranty paper that you can fill out and mail in. On a small section that can be ripped off this paper is a brief explanation of their warranty. The opposite side of that states that you shouldn't leave batteries in the toy. There is also a warning stating that if the toy fails to operate, check the position of the batteries.
There is also enough power for me to feel the vibrations reverberating out toward my anus and labia (which wasn't an all too uncomfortable sensation), though this still wasn't strong enough for me externally.
I didn't attempt to use this anally because I'm not too experienced in that area, and the size of the head was a bit more than I could possibly take. As I said in a section above, I didn't test this in or near water because it wouldn't operate when I closed the cap tightly. Plus, my living situation doesn't afford me much privacy in the bathroom or tub/shower.
All in all, I don't hate this toy, yet I don't absolutely love it. It's fun to play around with and to look at, but it takes some bending and contorting to get the job done. This toy would be great if it was more dramatically curved and had a firmer neck.
