The Not so Great KingThe Great King didn't give me the royal treatment. The large head made for an awkward experience while the weak rotation let me down. If you like larger sized vibes this may satisfy you, but it left me wanting something more.
Feel, ease of use, price
Large size, mild rotations, flimsy tickler
The Great King is a dual stimulation rabbit style vibrator. It is meant to provide internal stimulation as well as clitoral stimulation. You can bring the King to play alone or with others, but if you play with others use a condom. The Great King is made of jelly which means it can't be sanitized. The vibration and rotation is somewhat strong, but may be lacking for the more advanced users. Although, the larger diameter of this toy may be better suited for someone more advanced. If you're a beginner wanting to start with a larger sized vibe this will work for you, but if not then I would start a little bit smaller. If you like seamless designs this isn't for you. The head is somewhat bulbous and has a texture face that felt uncomfortable during insertion.
The Great King is made of a jelly material which can't be sanitized. This means if you plan to share while playing, use a condom. I like using a condom with the King anyway to help with cleaning up afterwards. Jelly isn't my favorite material since it usually has a strong odor, but the Great King's odor was pretty mild. After a few cleanings it went away almost completely. This toy is very soft and flexible. There is a face on the head that has eyes, a nose and mouth that provides a tiny amount of texture. The ribbed shaft added some extra stimulation, but felt uncomfortable at times.
The Design of the Great King is not my favorite due to the overly large head and textured face. Insertion was very uncomfortable for me. The large head made it hard for me to insert unless I had a large glob of lube. The nose on the face is pointy and it kept oddly poking me while inside. This toy is about 8 1/2 inches long with an insertable length of about 6 inches and a circumference of 4 1/2 inches. The clitoral attachment, which is a kangaroo, comes with separate tongues. One tongue is long and the other is a shorter one farther down. The first tongue measures about 2 1/2 inches down on the shaft and the second tongue about 3 1/2 inches down. The tongue is extremely flexible, so it was hard for me to keep it right where I wanted it. Beginners might want to try something a little smaller for their first vibe, but advanced users might really like the fullness this gives. The overall size of this toy with the hand held battery pack might be too large to travel with discreetly. But it's small enough for a carry on if you don't mind it being seen.
This vibe has both a rotating head/shaft and vibrating clitoral attachment. Being powered by 3 C batteries it does have some get up and go, just not really enough for me. The rotations are somewhat strong, but once inserted they don't hold up well. If you have strong pc muscles the rotations probably won't benefit you. The vibrations are fairly strong in the kangaroo, just not in the very tip of the tongue. I actually received more stimulation when I had the vibrations set on a lower setting than when it was on high. Controlling the Great King is easy with the hand held battery pack that is connected by a wire. The wire is a nice length at about 22 inches, so you will have plenty of maneuverability. Two sliding controls let you adjust the rotation and vibration settings separately. With both the settings at full speed the noise level is not so bad about 3 out of 5 bees.
The Great King is a jelly toy, so it should be cleaned with care. Warm water and toy cleaner should be used. As I said before, jelly can't be sanitized, so condoms should be used if you plan on sharing this toy. It should be stored in a cool and dry place. I have problems with lint and other debris sticking to mine, so I wrap it in a paper towel or put it in a baggy to keep it clean. Water and silicone based lubes can both be used.
The Great King arrived in a clear plastic package. It is nicely decorated, but not discreet at all. Inside the box, Vibratex includes some information about themselves and their products which I think is nice. Most packaging doesn't include any text information at all.
Follow-up commentary 13 months after original review
I still don't like the King at all. I have tried using it and it just never works. I have many other large toys, and some of odd shapes, but for some reason the King and I just don't go well together. Some out there may really like this toy but I didn't/don't. I wish I could say differently because it looks so great, but I can't. Sorry Great King but I'm not impressed.
