Use

This vibe would work in many different situations and thankfully on many different areas. During my personal use I found that, though it is made mainly for vaginal use, it makes a great clitoral stimulator! Of all my toys this vibe was the quickest to orgasm with and for that reason is totally worth the purchase!Having a rounder, wider and softer head than my other pointed vibrators made it a great clitoral experience! Using it with the sleeve on for clitoral use was much better for me than with it off.

The "studs" on the sleeve are a little harder than I would have expected, so vaginal use by myself was a bit uncomfortable. When using it with my husband it was a bit easier, more so because other things (oral sex) were going on at the same time, so I wasn't just focusing on the vibe. I did not try it anally and I don't think I ever would. The tip is wider than the base, and it's too thick (at least for me) to be a comfortable anal toy. I would not recommend it to a first time vibrator because I think it could be a little too rough for someone just starting out, maybe after you've figured out what you like. But, if you're up for it, give it a go!

You can easily use it by yourself or with your partner, though it doesn't have a very big gripping surface, so it could easily slip out of a partners hand. In researching the material I found that the best type of lubrication to use with this toy is something water-based, make sure you have that out before starting (it's no fun to stop once you get started!)!

Material / Texture

Texture is definately not for a newbie. Though the TPR silicone is smooth and the tip is jelly-like, the "ticklers" are a bit rough when using it.

Now what is TPR silicone? It is a silicone based rubber compound, it is not real silicone. There is no smell to it except for that "new" plastic smell, which normally goes away after it's been out of the packaging for a while. Like most items, the only taste is "plastic," but it's not something you would ever use in your mouth.

The top half of the tip (about a half an inch) is smooth with the ticklers starting about half way down. The base is full of them, minus the last inch where it goes back to being smooth again. Each tickler is about 1/4 of an inch long.
    • Bumpy
    • No odor
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

This vibe would be a great item to take traveling, but I would recommend taking the batteries out prior to packing just in case the dial gets twisted in route.

The toy itself is in total 6 inches long, with 5 inches being insertable (unless of course you're just that brave...). Without smashing down the ticklers it's approximately 5 inches around (6 inches at the tip). The first inch and a half is a more rounded tip that curves down into a slightly thinner base. The only part of the tip that is covered in ticklers is the bottom half, the top half remains smooth. Each tickler is about 1/4 of an inch long.

The "ticklers" put there for added texture are a great idea, but I think they could be a little softer. The title "softees" does not relate to the studs in any way. It could also be just my sensitivity as well.

Great size, and in that aspect could be used by anyone.

Another great thing is that with the sleeve off it can be used as just a regular vibe, and quite a good one at that!

Functions / Performance / Controls

For me the only way I came to orgasm with this toy is by using it on my clitoris. As I mentioned before, this was the quickest toy to get me off so far. Vaginally it didn't really do anything for me, I just couldn't get over the rough feel of the ticklers. For clit stimulation I would recommend the sleeve being on because of the rounded and soft tip. It also gives you a better and wider surface to grip on to.

Controls are easy, just a small dial at the bottom that you twist back and forth to change the intensity of the vibrations. With a little practice you could easily learn to do this with just one hand. I had no problems with the dial slipping during use, it's tight, but not tight but not tight enough to be hard to twist with just one or two fingers.

The actual spinning "vibrator" is located at the top which, like I mentioned before, makes it a great clitoral stimulator. Decent vibration intensity, but I only really was satisfied when it was on high.

It does work well in water though don't forget your lubrication as water is never enough with any toy!

I was very happy to find out that it takes only 2 AAA batteries! I am NOT a fan of the N battery!They are extremely easy to change, you don't even have to take the sleeve off as the batteries are inserted through the bottom. Don't fret if you lose the little paper insert showing which way they go in either, it is clearly marked right at the top.

I found that it was very quiet. With it turned on full intensity sitting on the rug in the bathroom, I could barely hear it about 3 feet away through the door. I would be more worried about the sounds that come out of your mouth!
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

The only big flaw I see in the design is in cleaning (or lack there of). Water and other bodily fluids can seep under the silicone sleeve and harbor bacteria if not cared for. When cleaning, the sleeve needs to be taken off and left off until it's fully dried. Putting it back on is the hard part as it takes a lot of effort. Not having it very long I'm not sure if it gets easier with each cleaning, but then that could be a bad thing as it could slip off during use. Being waterproof, cleaning is exceptionally easy! My one suggestion would be to try to take the sleeve off before you start cleaning, as getting it wet makes it quite slippery and a big more difficult to get off. Once off it's just as simple as using your favorite cleanser or soap and hot water to scrub it down. Set both pieces to dry separately as water stuck in between the two could harbor bacteria.

The material itself can collect a lot of dust and debris (hair, lint, etc...), even in a small amount of time or just in storage. Always make sure to clean it well before and after use, or leave it in some type of clean storage.
    • Easy to clean
    • High maintenance

Packaging

The packaging was a small plastic molded casing that just popped open when pulled apart at the top or along the sides. Great if you're wanting to get right into using it, but me being a germ freak, this means anyone could have gotten their hands on it before you. If you're wanting to keep it clean when stored, I would definately keep the packaging as it fits right back in place and pops closed!
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal

Personal comments

With this vibrator I would highly recommend a really good cleanser such as:

Experience

I had great experiences with the toy, though I wasn't too keen on using it vaginally or anally as it was a bit too rough for me. As a clitoral vibrator (with or without sleeve), it was fantastic!!

    Including a measurement of the ticklers was a good idea. I hadn't thought of that. Mentioning that the sleeve needed to be cleaned separately from the vibrator and dried apart was a good addition.
