Use

This is a nice little vibe, fits in my hand easily, and is very comfortable to hold. It's perfect for just about anybody, as long as they don't expect to use it anally, since it doesn't have a base. It's pretty small, which is perfect for external use, but not so much internally, though it definitely could be used that way, if you wanted. The Ako definitely does well for a vibe of it's size, and even though the instructions say rechargeable batteries make it less powerful, the ones I tried with it didn't have that much of a negative effect on the power.

You could use this for all over body stimulation, with a partner, or by yourself, and be just as happy. However, it's not really large enough to be used for g-spot simulation comfortably. It's small enough that it could very well be used during sex, but might be a bit bulky or awkward to with oral.

This toy is really buzzy, but not very loud, so you could use this in a room, with the door shut, and maybe a bit of music, or a tv on, and nobody outside the room would know what was going on. It's also waterproof, which I've tested with a shower, but never kept it submerged. It had absolutely no moisture in the battery area, I was a bit worried originally, the seam between the plastic and the silicone has a bit of a gap, the inner seal held tight though.

Material / Texture

The main body of the Ako is made of smooth silicone. It has a nice silky feel, and very little to no smell, right out of the box. I got the purple one, and the color is very vibrant, I absolutely love it. The only texture to the silicone is the controls, a +, -, and m, and the word PikoBong molded into the side oppostie the controls. They're all the same color, and not very raised/inset, so there's nothing to worry about, or get excited about if you wanted texture. The silicone does have a slight amount of drag to it, and gives a little bit of friction when you rub it across your hand, but not much.

It's a very rigid toy, with just a small spot with any give to it, right at the tip,there's a slightly darker spot, that when pressed feels slightly squishy.

The end piece where you insert the batteries is a hard plastic piece, with grooved layers on it, almost like tiers or steps. It's a bit darker that the main silicone part, but stays pretty true to the color you choose. The cap takes a bit of pressure to connect to the main body, but it stays secure once it's on. It reminds me of one of the child safety seals on medicine, where you have to struggle to get the top off, only backwards. However, that only occurs when the batteries are actually in the toy, so if you remove them to store it, you won't have to deal with it when you're tired and putting it away.

The silicone used for the Ako is rated 10/10 for safety, and repels dirt and bacteria. Silicone is non-porous, so can be kept clean very easily. It does have a tendency to collect any dust or hair around it though, so it may be a good idea to give it a nice wipe-down before using.

The plastic on the end cap is 8/10 for safety, and is non-porous and phthalates free.

The entire toy is latex free, so for anybody with latex allergies, this toy is safe for you to use!
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

To me, the design was very nice. It's small, about the length of my hand, and fits nicely in my grip. It's about 5 inches long, and 2 inches around, at the thickest point. A lot of the vibrations are focused right at the tip, so it's nice and powerful right where you need it to be.

It's not really long enough for just insertion, but could be used that way if somebody wanted to, just make sure to have your settings all ready to go, because unless you want to stop halfway through to pull it out and change the mode or power, you're stuck with what you start with.

It's quite a discreet toy, I had mine sitting out on my desk and had to basically point it out to my boyfriend when he was looking for it. Part of that may be that I picked a color that kind of fits in with other things I keep out on my desk, but really, it's just not a huge noticeable floppy penis shape.

This could honestly be used for anyone, I'm a beginner myself, and love it. I think that advanced users could also find it pleasing for the sheer fact that it is quite powerful for its size.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The controls on the Ako are very easy to use, just being a +, -, and M. Holding down the + is what turns the toy on, and also increases the vibrations. The - decreases the vibrations, or if held down, turns the toy off completely. The M is the mode selection. Thisis the chart showing the different types of vibration patterns the Ako can have. Personally, I like it at just the plain original setting, but you never know what might be the perfect one until you try them all. The only downside to the controls is that they're located right on the side of the vibe, which means, if you did want to insert it, you would need to have it all set up to just how you wanted it before starting.

It's very buzzy, noise-wise. It's not loud enough to be heard over a tv or some music, or even through a closed door while it's under blankets, but if it were accidentally turned on with someone in the room, everybody would definitely hear it.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

I personally wipe my ako down with some toy wipes every time I'm done using it, then I store it in a soft fabric bag. It needs to be stored at a decent temperature, and not next to any other silicone toys, or else it could get damaged. Use only water based lubes, as the Ako is silicone, and silicone based lubes could damage the toy.

As it's non-porous silicone, using soap and warm water, then drying it with a soft cloth before storing is a great way to disinfect/clean the Ako between uses. Be sure not to boil it or put it through the dishwasher if you like using it though.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The packaging of the Ako was very nice. It's a solid plastic-esque box, with a clear plastic viewing area where the Ako sits. Mine was purple, to match my toy, which I really actually found was quite a nice touch by PicoBong. On the front it says "Outie Vibe," so along with the clear window, it's not exactly a discreet box for gift giving in front of the rest of the family.

The user guide included in the package wasn't an entire book of details, but it had enough to figure out how to work everything, even for those that are mechanically inept. It includes a little picture guide on how to clean it, along with how not to clean it, which was quite nice.
    • Minimal
    • Not discreet

Experience

I really love using this toy, and I haven't really had a rushing desire to go out and buy another. The Ako does what I bought it for, and it does it very well. It is a little buzzy, but I like that, honestly. I would definitely buy another PikoBong or Lelo toy in the future, and would recommend this toy to anybody who was looking for a nice, cute, little outie vibe.
