The battery compartment cap/handle is made from plastic and the vibe itself is silicone. It's a lovely, velvety-soft material without any smell or taste. It has a little surface drag as well as a tendency to attract lint. I really like the subtle texture. The groove down one side of the tip feels great when used for clitoral stimulation, and the other side is smooth for anyone who prefers no texture or would like to switch back and forth. The shallow ridges underneath aren't very pronounced, but can still be felt, as can the wavy raised bands around the shaft. Since the material is so soft and giving, this is a great choice for anyone new to playing with textures.
While I wouldn't call this vibe realistic, its tapered tip resembles a penis head and is great for pinpoint stimulation. The shaft is very a effective external massager and can also be inserted for vaginal stimulation. Size-wise, the Lil Teaser Sassy is comparable to other rocket-style vibrators. With only 3 1/4 inches of insertable length and around 3 inches in girth, it's not the least bit intimidating. It's also discreet and travel-friendly. I love the little ring handle, but it does make accidentally turning the motor on way too easy.
There is one speed of continuous vibration controlled by a twist of the ring handle. The vibration can be felt all along the shaft and at the tip. I love toys that have simple, easy-to-use controls. In my opinion, they're the best for spur-of-the-moment use or to have nearby during partner play. It's so convenient to just turn the power on as opposed to fumbling around trying to find the right button to get to whichever setting you're looking for. I do wish this toy had more speed settings, but the power is a good intensity for general purposes. It's not too strong to start out with and probably enough to get the job done for most users.
Waterproof toys are so easy to clean. Simply wash with antibacterial soap and water, use toy cleaner, or, as this is silicone, sterilize with a 10% bleach solution. Just be sure to only use water-based lubes with this vibe. I take the battery out of my Lil Teaser Sassy to clean it because otherwise I keep inadvertently twisting the handle and turning it on. Storage is no problem since this vibe takes up hardly any space. I keep mine in a plastic baggie in my toy drawer.
The Lil Teaser Sassy comes in a clear plastic box with general product information on the back. The toy rests in its own molded insert, and there is a separate slot that houses the included N size battery. While not really discreet for gift-giving purposes, it could certainly be used for storage. Instructions are included and printed in several different languages.
I quite like this one. It's bigger than a bullet, softer than a rocket, and easier than an egg. I love it for clitoral stimulation. It's great for some vaginal teasing. Some women may even be able to get good g-spot stimulation with it, but this toy isn't really designed for that. Thanks to the ring handle, it's easy to hold and manipulate, as well as perfect for hanging in the shower. This wouldn't be the vibe I'd select for an extended, indulgent self-pleasuring session, but it's the perfect toy for when the situation calls for something small, simple, and effective.
