The casing is made up of a hard, no-give plastic material that is super slick and smooth. Add the tiniest bit of lubricant and this toy will be very slippery indeed! The sleek texture-less surface can be appreciated by both beginners and toy experts. The vibrations slither across the body, providing a frictionless surface of pleasure.
Keep in mind that the multi-speed dial on the base is also free of any texture, so it is advisable to avoid getting lube on it as it becomes near impossible to twist once lubed up.
I am happy to say that during my kiss and tell test, the Harmony has no scent or taste.
Harmony has a basic and straightforward classic shape. The plastic casing is all the same color (black in this case) with a silver band found about an inch above the very base. The band is very smart looking and adds an element of style and class to its appearance. At the base of the toy sits the easy to turn multi-speed dial.
This toy is 2.25" long and about .75" wide making it very discreet, indeed! If one walked into the bathroom with the black version in hand, it would most likely be mistaken for a tube of lipstick. While this size may have a hard time creating a feeling of fullness when inserted internally, it certainly creates a nice buzzy sensation when used externally. The smaller size actually make it ideal for use during intercourse and on the more sensitive areas of the body - such as the nipples, inside of the arm and the back of the ear.
The Harmony would be very easy to conceal and carry discreetly, making it suitable for travel and for those needing to conceal the presence of toys.
Turning the toy on and adjusting the vibration intensity is a breeze with the dial base. Simply turn to the right until the desired intensity is met and you're ready to go! The vibrations are found in the tip of the toy, making pinpointing pleasure placement easy.
To get the lower settings, one may have to turn the dial up a ways and then slowly down. It seems that the power doesn't actually kick in until about a quarter strength or so. The vibrations are light to moderate on the highest setting, making this a great warm up and accompaniment vibrator. It is also extremely quiet and would probably not be heard at all if under the covers or while submerged.
Clean up is made super easy with the waterproof design. Take it in the shower, wash it in the sink or wipe it clean with a wash cloth! This toy seals up easily once the battery case is closed.
This toy can be used with all lubricant types, so use your favorite! It is always best for your toys to be stored in individual bags or socks - this also keeps them clean and free of lint and dust until next time! Residue seems to slip away when cleaning the Harmony Vibe with soap and water or toy cleaner. The slick, non-stick surface make clean up with this toy quick and easy.
While I have been able to climax from using the Harmony Mini Vibe on clitoral stimulation alone, I am one of those women who do not need a lot of power to reach orgasm. The vibrations are more of a light touch which you can build on. I think this toy is best suited for warm up and as a companion during intercourse or while coupled with another toy.
