The three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote...Stink, stank, stunk. Okay, so maybe I've been watching How The Grinch Stole Christmas too much, but seriously, the lo was a letdown. I was anxious to give this "mini massager" a try but it just didn't work out for me. For the quality of vibrations and material, I'd say it's overpriced. The only thing that makes this a "luxury" vibrator is the silicone sleeves.
This vibrator can go anywhere with you, assuming you remove the batteries. It’s not realistic or phallic in shape but it’s still obvious as a small vibrator, so it’s not the most discreet vibrator to travel with. If you don’t mind traveling with a vibrator, it has its own storage pouch so you can toss it in your purse, backpack, or luggage and the lo can keep you company wherever you may go. Just make sure you take the batteries out; I’ve never met such a touchy power button. It is waterproof so feel free to take the lo along with you in the shower or bathtub. I’ve used this in the shower numerous times and I have not found any water in the battery area.
The lo has a one year limited warranty that will cover any manufacturer defect.
Each sleeve is made of silicone. I did flame test these sleeves so they are 100% silicone. Silicone is completely body safe. It is non-porous, hypoallergenic, latex free, and phthalate free. It’s suitable for sharing since it can be disinfected. The silicone on these sleeves is really smooth and supple. It’s almost buttery smooth, but not quite that smooth. It does feel really luxurious though. For silicone sleeves, there’s really not as much drag as one would expect and they’re not big lint magnets. The sleeves do have a slight “new plastic” smell, even after washing.
The button on the top of the bullet is a stainless steel alloy.
One sleeve is completely smooth and devoid of texture. It glides over skin effortlessly. The other sleeve features six rows of raised nubs that swirl up over the back side of the sleeve. The nubs are easily felt in use, especially if the lo is being ran over skin. When the sleeves are on the bullet, they fit really loosely. I found that they slide and twist over the bullet in use. When the lo is inserted, they slide off the bullet completely. This makes it easy to switch sleeves but it’s also a big pain in the ass during use.
Because the sleeves are silicone, be sure to use only water based lubricants with the lo. Silicone lube and silicone sleeves do not get along well. If you do not plan on using the sleeves, it is okay to use silicone lube on the plastic bullet.
The box isn’t discreet but it is really classy. There are pictures of the lo on the front and the back, along with descriptions and information about the lo. It’s suitable for gift giving as long as the recipient wouldn’t be easily embarrassed.
Now, that storage bag is an added bonus, I guess, so I can’t be too upset about it. However, it barely fits the bullet (with a sleeve on) and the spare sleeve. It’s made of really cheap material. It’s the kind of cheap, stiff material you find on $20 Halloween costumes that just scream “HEY! I’m a Wal-Mart costume!” It does have a drawstring closure, which feels like cheap ribbon. My drawstring closure also came with some white gunk stuck on it. It looks like gum. I guess the bag keeps my lo clean and separated from everything else in my toy box, but would some nicer fabric have been that much trouble?
