I am fully converted over to vibes after encountering the Thumper, which certainly lives up to its name. With my petite build, this is the perfect toy to give me even more of my beloved g-spot orgasms and also enjoyable penetration and thrusting that remains comfortable and pleasurable for the duration of a long solo play session.

A Guided Finger
Smooth and angled like the finger of an attentive lover. Excellent arousal stimulator, for the moderately-experienced player's toy chest. Ideal for creative foreplay, rather than total satisfaction.
This is a very beginner-friendly vibe that is ideal for either clitoral or g-spot simulation. And, between the small size and the plastic storage case that is included, this is also a very travel-friendly option.
Comes with a storage case, non-intimidating, easy to use.
Buzzy, weak vibrations.
Like most vibes in this general shape, it can be used in a variety of ways and is gender-neutral. The size and shape make it ideal for external stimulation. The surface buzz diffuses well against the nipples, clit, perineum, scrotum, and other hot-spots. It can also be used for internal vaginal stimulation, lightly stimulating the a-spot, or possibly reaching shallow g-spots. This does lack a flared-base, and is not suitable for anal insertion.
Because this toy is quiet enough not to be heard through covers, is small, and comes with its own discreet carrying case, it is perfect for those with roommates. It is 100% waterproof and makes a great travel companion, whether in a suitcase for vacation or in a purse for regular use when you find yourself alone with some time on your hands.
Material / Texture:
Decadence is made from ABS plastic with a PU-coating. The PU-coating is basically a matte texture that feels like silk against the skin. Rubbed over areas that are completely dry, it glides like velvet; with a bit of your favorite lube (it is compatible with any lube type), it will slip around like butter. On a partially moist area it feels like it will catch, so be sure to lube up.
Plastic is a pretty safe material: only semi-porous, hypo-allergenic, phthalate and latex-free. It has no unpleasant smell or taste. It is completely firm with no flexibility. This particular toy has no added texture, and would make a good first toy.

Design / Shape / Size:
This toy is fairly small and unintimidating for new players, but still works well for those looking for a toy that is multi-use and couple-friendly. From the black matte material to the semi-opaque coffin shaped travel-case, this toy is meant to inspire the imagination for the many ways in can be used, rather than as a one-trick pony.
It comes in at 4 1/2" long (3 1/4" of which is insertable), and a thin 1" in diameter. It is basically the size of an egg-bullet, but longer. This gives more room to hold onto the toy, both for solo use and for those trying to stimulate their partner.
Rather than being phallic in shape, this toy features a straight shaft that tapers slightly at the neck and then flares semi-sideways into a flat surface. From the side, it looks like a drooping flower, or like a smaller version of the Lelo Gigi.
If you have a shallow g-spot, this will angle up perfectly to stimulate it, if yours is deeper, it probably won't reach. Either way, the shape is still perfect for external stimulation and creates a broad, but small, surface where the vibrations are directed.
The set includes:
Vibrator and carrying case.
Functions / Performance / Controls:
The vibrations are controlled via the turn-dial base at the bottom of the toy. While this makes it impossible to say exactly how many speeds there are, it appears to have around 2-3 noticeable increments. At the highest speed, it is equivalent to the vibration mode of a cell phone, or perhaps a bit weaker. The vibrations themselves are very high-frequency and buzzy. This provides a fast, fluttering sensation over the clit, or a slightly deeper sensation when inserted.
This vibe is very quiet and could be used in a shared room (like a dorm room) without notice from anyone else, and it certainly wouldn't be heard through a closed door or over a little white noise. It also performs well in the water, especially the shower. In the bathtub, the vibrations tend to dissipate a bit in the water.
Care and Maintenance:
This toy is waterproof, so it is easy to give it a good scrubbing with plain old soap and water, or a douse of toy cleaner to get it clean. There aren't any tiny textures or areas that require extra effort, so the job is pretty painless. However, since the storage case is plastic, you should allow the toy to dry completely before storing so as not to grow any germs.
Care and cleaning:
Soap and water
This is not the toy I would choose for myself for two reasons. First, I hate buzzy vibrations. Secondly, I have a deep g-spot and this toy does not reach it. But I can't fault it's not being a good choice for me on a lack of quality.
I love that this comes with its own travel-case and that it can be used in so many different ways. I still recommend it, but only to those who realize what to expect and won't be disappointed.
