Warm-n-glow? Well...it glows...While it may not have warmed up during use to a point of being able to feel the warmth, I have certainly warmed up to using this device! I generally stay away from the hard plastics because the whole thing vibrates, handle included, and this one is no exception. It was very nice and did wonders for adding to a massage though! It won’t live in the “toy drawer," but it does have a home in my desk drawer for use on sore muscles.
Handle vibrates too...
I would not recommend that this be inserted at all; run it across the surface of your skin and, if necessary, use something else for insertion.
The device is hard plastic (ABS) with a PU cote...meaning that it isn’t a shiny hard plastic; it is a matte, finished hard plastic. The texture is more of a soft, satin-like feel but obviously plastic. There is/was no smell to it; however, since the box arrived open, it may have had a slight smell to it that aired out as it traveled to my location.
There is a seam where components meet about 2 1/4 inches from the tip. It is not noticeable while in use though, just watch it to make sure it is cleaned!
I don’t think this is an “easy to hide” device as it looks like it is supposed to be a sex toy. Mine is currently residing on the top of my desk, but it is small enough to be tossed in a drawer if need be. Not that it is very “small” though! It measures 7 inches long by 1 1/2 inches at the widest part. I won’t be traveling with this device as the push button control is just too easy to bump into the “on” position while packed. With the batteries taken out, I may take it though. In the car on a long drive, this would be perfect for a quick neck massage while parked at a rest area.
The entire device vibrates from the push-button control located at the base all the way to the tip! However, the strongest of the vibrations are felt at the tip/head. As for the controls, it is a simple push-button: once for low-speed, twice for high-speed, and a third push will turn the device off. My only complaint with the controls is that when handed over to someone who is not aware of the “multi-speed” availability, they don’t find it until they go to turn it off! At least, that is what happened at my house when my partner decided he would give me a massage with it after he had received one.
As I mentioned before, this is a very noisy device! However, turned on to the high-speed setting and tossed onto the bed with the bedroom door shut, I could not hear it even though I was just outside of the door and was listening for it! I was actually a little shocked. I was sure I was going to be able to hear it. Against skin, it is quite a bit louder, but I think it is still safe to use if you are looking for something the neighbors can’t hear.
If you choose to use this for insertion and/or need to use lube, anything should be okay (water-based or silicone), but I only use water-based lubricants because I have a fear of accidentally melting a toy by using the wrong lube. I have yet to hear of a toy that required silicone and not water-based, so I play it same as far as lubes go! Just remember to wash it up when you’re done.
Store this one with other ABS toys or on its own (in with the stationary maybe). I am still suffering the loss of a toy and an expensive toy bag from a melted silicone toy, so I would always recommend separate toy storage!
