Luv Your Body is made out of a combination of plastic and silicone. The handle is made out of sturdy white plastic, which curves down towards the pink silicone head. The head feels pretty firm, like there's plastic underneath a thick layer of silicone. This toy is not flexible at all. I noticed absolutely no odor or taste to this toy.
Since this is made from both silicone and plastic, which are non-porous, it's pretty safe to use and share with a partner. The material is hypoallergenic and phthalates/latex free. Unlike other silicone toys, I did not notice this one attracting any lint or hair.
Just as it is, the heart-shaped head of the toy has quite a bit of friction or drag on skin. Once lubed up, it will glide easily over skin.
I feel this toy is great for both beginners and more advanced users. The shape allows you to really use this toy in any position you want, while getting some pretty strong vibrations. The material is safe and feels smooth on skin.
This massager is pretty small. It measures approximately 6 1/2 inches total in length. The handle measures almost 5 inches around at its widest, near the base, and 3 inches around near the head. The silicone head is 3 inches tall and 2 1/2 inches wide.
The plastic handle curves down gently towards the heart, which is also curved downward. The handle is a good size for holding with one hand. I am able to easily hold it in one hand without losing grip, regardless of how lube covered my hand is. The control buttons are down towards the heart, and consist of a power button and a button to switch between the five vibrating functions. Turning the toy on, the small control area does light up pale purple. This isn't very bright, but it's enough to easily see this toy's controls in the dark. At the other end of the handle is the battery compartment. This is sealed off with a rubber ring, which prevents water from getting into the toy. The hatch just pops right off when pulled straight out. Inside is a small plastic holder for the batteries. This is pulled out to insert batteries. It's a bit difficult to get this piece in once it's been pulled out.
I like the size of this toy. The handle is big enough for me to easily hold, and the controls are easily reached with my thumb. Luv Your Body isn't designed with just the right hand in mind, too, so I am able to comfortably hold it with my left hand. The heart is big enough to stimulate a large area, while the tip can be used to stimulate just one small area. The curved shape of this also lets me stimulate my fiance much better than I can with other vibrators. Turning this over, the underside of the heart can stimulate the balls and penis while cupping them. It's also easy to reach behind a shoulder and massage a sore shoulder or neck while holding this.
I don't think this toy is very discreet. Just looking at it, most people will be able to identify it as a vibrator very quickly. It's small enough to be easy to hide in a nightstand or a dresser drawer, though.
This toy offers five different vibrating functions: low, medium, high, and two pulse patterns that increase in intensity. The vibrations are located in the heart-shaped end of the toy, but can be felt all up the handle as well. I feel the low vibrations are actually the same as the high setting on many vibrators I have tried. The vibrations are more of a rumbly type than a buzzy type. Because of the intensity, I prefer the low setting and the first pulse pattern, which starts out pretty low and ends up higher. I found that the other two constant vibration functions were actually a little too high for me, and would actually hurt. I don't feel that the five functions are really enough variety, especially considering how high-powered this toy is. A couple of lower powered patterns or pulses would be nice.
It's easy to switch between functions during use. As long as you are holding the handle, one finger can be used to press the button to switch. The lighted control area really makes it easy to locate the controls in the dark. I noticed that my hand got all tingly feeling after just a few minutes of use from the vibrations travelling up the handle.
This is a pretty noisy toy. It's about as loud as an electric toothbrush and can easily be heard through a closed door. If you're using it in the bathroom, you could just say you were using an electric toothbrush or shaver, though.
In water, this performed just fine. You do need to be a little careful when putting the battery hatch back on, though, because it might push the rubber ring out of place. Removing the hatch and putting it back on will fix it.
Luv Your Body takes four AAA batteries. This is quite a bit, but I suppose this is a pretty intense toy. I used some low-drain heavy duty batteries designed for things like clocks. After about an hour of running, they are still working. Removing the battery hatch to change or remove batteries can be difficult. A couple of times, I have pulled on the hatch with the toy at an angle, and the battery compartment inside actually launched out and sent batteries flying. A couple of them actually hit my cat. I'd make sure to keep the toy angled downward just in case.
Taking care of Luv Your Body is pretty simple. It can be washed with a mild soap and warm water or sprayed and wiped down with a toy cleaner. Rubbing alcohol can also be used to sterilize it. I do not recommend boiling this, since the controls or plastic body may be messed up. Since this comes in a hard plastic box, it's easy to store. The box will keep out any lint or dust and keep your toy ready for its next use. I store mine in this box in a storage tub under my bed. I do not recommend simply throwing this in with other open toys, since the silicone could bond with the silicone in another toy and become warped. At the very least, plastic bags should be used to separate toys.
Silicone is only compatible with water based lubes. Silicone based lubes may also wreck your toy.
Luv Your Body comes packaged in a hard, clear plastic case. It has little rests inside to hold the toy in one position, making the box and toy great for shipping or travel, since it won't bump around inside the box very much. This box measures 7 x 3 x 2 inches. The front of it has "Luv" written on it in raised clear lettering. The "U" in "Luv" is a heart. On one corner of the front is the Rocks Off logo. My plastic case arrived pretty beat up looking already. It has a ton of scratches and scuff marks on it.
Outside of the plastic case is a plastic sleeve. The front says, "Luv your body," with some hearts at the corners. One side features a diagram of the control panel as well as the battery compartment. It states that batteries are not included. The back states that this is a body massager and can be used to soothe body aches. It also says this toy has five functions and is waterproof. The other side of the box lists this information in German, French, and Spanish.
I don't think the packaging is as informative as it could be. It tells me absolutely nothing about the materials used in this toy, where it's made, or even the company's web site. If receiving this as a gift, a user may be a little lost with this toy and might wreck it due to lack of information. The packaging does, though, look good enough otherwise to give as a gift. It's got cute little hearts all over it, rather than the naked women many vibrator boxes are decorated with.
This is definitely the most high-powered toy I have used yet. I can't use the medium or high settings, as they actually hurt a little. After a while the low setting started to make me a little uncomfortable, because I could actually feel it vibrating in my stomach. In small doses, this toy is excellent. As I said before, some lower vibrating functions would be nice for me to slowly work my way up in intensity.
