As stated under the Material/Texture section on the product page, this toy is made using a PU coated plastic for the bullet/egg end of the toy and plastic for the controls with wiring connecting the two ends. PU coated plastic is given a safety rating of 7 while plastic is given an 8. The bullet/egg end is very smooth to the touch and has a velvety feeling like some others have described it. There is a groove that runs around the bullet/egg at the widest width. This groove could allow for liquids or other particles to collect but is unlikely if cleaned properly.
The shape of the egg end is just that, egg like. If looked at from above it is shaped like an ellipse. The length of the egg is 2 1/4" with the total length being insertable. The width of the egg is 1 inch if measured at the widest part with the ends being slightly narrower. The controls are shaped like a teardrop sort of. The wider part of the control fits into the palm of your hand with it tapering down to the dial at the top so it can be operated with the thumb and pointer finger. The size of both the controls and egg worked perfectly for my hands. The wire is approximately 30 inches long which should provide everyone enough length while playing.
Unlike other vibrators that have patterns, this toy is limited to a steady vibration. However, it comes with a dial to provide a range of vibrations from very light to very strong. Since this is our first toy of this type, I cannot compare it to other toys of this type. All I can say is that it provides stronger vibrations than the TCB (Taking Care of Business), the Body and Soul Devotion, and the Touche Opis. The controls are very easy to use with one side of them having a picture of which way to turn the dial for stronger (or weaker) vibrations.
This toy is very easy to clean. My preferred method is to use toy wipes but other options include other toy cleaners or mild soap and water. Be careful not to submerge this toy though as it is not waterproof and water could seep in where the wire meets the egg. Also, do not, under any circumstances, submerge the controls as there are multiple small openings that would allow water in. Since the controls are only as thick as a few pencils it is easy to store as long as you can keep the wire under control.
My experience with this toy has been great. Either myself or my partner holds the egg on her clit and I am given the controls. This allows us to have fun since she can place it in the perfect spot but I can control the intensity, either allowing her to cum quickly or slowly build it up to a more intense orgasm. The only complaint we have is that if the egg gets wet it is hard to hold onto as the vibrations try to wiggle it out of your grip. If you can hold onto it, you are bound to have a great orgasm. Every time we have used this we have left her body shaking after making her squirt multiple times.
