The Charisma Twisty is made from PU Coated plastic, which ranks in at a good 7 out of 10 on the EF safety scale. This vibrator is phthalates free. Upon reception it didn't have any smells to it and it had the feel of a smooth plastic.
This vibrator is somewhat designed like a screw. My husband thought he could be funny and tell me since he's away I can still get screwed every day. It has a swirled design which create added pleasure to the vibrations.
As mentioned above, the design of this vibrator adds to vibrations, and it makes for a great feeling. It measures 5" long with an insertable length of 3.5", so it is somewhat small, which makes it great for travel. It could easily be kept in your purse or carry on. While the design of it is not discreet, the size of it is. This is why it would make a great toy for beginners.
The Charisma twisty has 10 different functions. There is a mix of solid vibrations, and then escalating and pulsating vibrations. The vibrations flow very nicely throughout the whole vibrator. These multifunction vibrators are always my favorite. I love how they give you a wide range of variety. I believe this would work well for advanced users as well because the vibrations are very strong; there is definitely no lack of vibrations in this toy. The only downside to this toy, just like others I have, is the control switch is one switch and it is at the end of the vibrator.
This toy is very easy to clean. Since it's made from a plastic, you can use soap & water to clean it, or even a toy cleaner. It comes in a plastic box that it could easily be stored in or, since it's small, you could hide it in your bedside table or in your toy box with your other toys. You could easily use a water-based or silicone-based lube while enjoying your time.
