Vanity Vr8 why can't we be friends?This dual ended internal vibrator is highly crafted, but not the perfect toy for me. I did not find it to be powerful enough to achieve clitoral orgasm, and the design was not made for my body. I know I'm in the minority here so that is not the fault of the toy, but for my lack of experience with my own body.
The Vanity Vr8 is such a versatile toy that it is a wonderful vibrator for beginners to advanced users alike. You can insert one end and have the other end nestle your clit for simultaneous stimulation. You can use it to gently tease and stimulate whatever erogenous zone that you prefer. It can be used solo or during couples play. No matter what you do, the Vr8 is a nice toy to experience.
It does not have a flared base so I would not recommend using it anally.
There is a small vertical seam that runs down the toy, but can't be felt while in use. The silicone is very smooth, soft, velvety, and does not have any additional texture to it. It is best for those who enjoy smooth toys and is not for those who like bumps, grooves, and texture to their toys. The middle is flexible but both ends do not have any give to them because that's where the motors are located.
It does not have any smell to it which is fantastic.
The smaller bulbous end is smaller than Uma, but the larger rounded end is thicker than Uma. I really like the shape of the VR8, especially that it has two varying sizes on the ends for those who appreciate thin and thicker toys. I think that beginners and advanced users can appreciate that aspect of this toy. I personally prefer thinner toys, but have been known to buy thicker toys on occasion. Here are some pictures of the ends seperately and how they compare with Uma.
It is very easy to travel with and even has a travel lock feature so it won't accidentally turn on during use. To unlock, hold both buttons simultaneously for four seconds. To lock, repeat this process.
It is not exactly discreet since the smaller end does have a bulbous head so if discretion is important to you, I would make sure this is hidden before company comes over.
It does not have any patterns of any kind which I think is fantastic because I've never cared for patterns in my toys.
There is a red LED indicator light that glows while in use.
As far as strength goes, both ends are weaker than Uma. The small end is whiny at the highest setting, and the larger end is deeper. On both sides of the VR8, the vibrations are focused at the tip, but do travel nicely along the shaft. In this instance I like the thicker end because the vibrations feel deeper to me. I would consider the smaller end a buzzy 3 vroom and the larger end a rumbly 4 vroom.
Even at its highest setting, the Vr8 is pretty quite and not distracting. You will not need any background noise to cover the use of this toy and it will not be heard through thin walls or closed doors.
It has a Lithium Ion rechargeable battery that has a complete charge in four hours, but the first initial charge only takes three and a half hours. Fully charged, it can give you up to three hours of play but that depends on what setting you are on and if you are using both motors simultaneously so results will vary.
The charging port is located on the back of the vibrator in the middle. There's a small circle indention where it plugs into the vibrator like the Bedroom Kandi lipstick vibrator if you have that toy.
To charge, plug charger into recharge port and plig into a power sourcde. A red LED will glow indicating that it is charging. When fully charged, the light will turn off. The charger is a little over five feet long.
It is completely waterproof and it held up during testing. The vibrations did not become weaker in the water which was fantastic.
Dry thoroughly before storing and always use a water-based lubricant.
The storage bag is wonderful, it held eighteen toys of various shapes and sizes. I was able to fit the G4 Elegance, Mona, Uma, VR8, Zini Roae, G-ki, Gigi, Little Paul Click N Charge, three Mimis, and six different Roulette's. I know you're thinking that we're not supposed to store silicone together, but I have not had any issues doing this. However, if you don't want to store your toys in there you could store the Vr8, charger, Eden Wipes, and lubricant in there so everything you need would be in one location. Now that I have one, I feel I have to get more Jopen products just for their wonderful bags to hold the rest of my toys. Yes, I know that's not practical, but I plan on getting more from this line anyway.
However, as far as I'm concerned this product did not do it for me. My circumstances are very unique so just because it didn't work for me doesn't mean this won't work for you. I have not found any toy that allows me to have a vaginal orgasm and have only come across four toys that allow me to have a clitoral orgasm. This was not one of those toys no matter how much I wanted it to be so.
I do not have a partner that will work the toys with me to help me get a feel for my own anatomy and the inner workings of my most intimate spot. I buy climax gels and all these wonderful toys, but I just can't achieve an orgasm on my own no matter what I do. I was hoping since I've heard wonderful things about Jopen toys that this particular toy would be the toy that allowed me to achieve satisfaction on my own, but that was just not the case. I'm not giving up on Jopen toys and I'm not giving up on finding the perfect toy for me, but sadly this was not my "perfect" toy.
You may wonder why I chose this particular version out of all the Jopen toys, and I will tell you the majority of Jopens toys are rabbit style or have the additional clit arm. I have not had any success with the few rabbits that I have tried so I was limited to trying the VR2, VR8, or VR9. According to the product page, this one is supposed to be the strongest one out of those options and I know that I need power to achieve a clitoral orgasm so that's why I chose it.
I've tried pairing this with Uma and the Eroscillator Top Deluxe to give me simultaneous clitoral stimulation, but I have not been able to have any extra results that I wouldn't have experience by using those two vibrators on their own. Overall, this will stay in my toybox and I will continue using Uma until I can find something that I feel is better than it.
