Paul's silicone body is odor and taste free. Paul has a body that graduates in size as the body approaches the base of the toy. The graduation in size means Paul is great for just about anyone, beginner to advanced users.
Paul has nine bulges that make up his bumpy body. Paul has a base/handle of ABS plastic with silicone buttons. Paul has lot's of flexibility from the head through the first four bulges, then Paul's body becomes rigid for the last five bulges. In use, Paul's bulges are a mild, non aggressive, texture that enhances sensation without overwhelming the user.
Paul is a worm - I'm not going to assume what particular type. Paul's bumpy, wormy, exterior is the perfect shape for a g-spot vibrator. His head is modestly sized making his graduating body perfect for just about anyone. Paul has ample length to find even the deepest g-spot. His total length is ten inches. The insertable length is seven and a half inches and the diameter is one and five eighths. The first four inches of Paul flex and bend, yielding to your will. G-spot stimulation is moderate, not as intense as a totally firm material such as Glass would be.
Fun Factory calls the handle on the G4 vibes the "Loop of love" and I have to agree, I love this handle! The oval opening in the handle provides the perfect finger hold for a very secure grip! I also can hold on securely without threat of hitting the controls. The handle also provides a fairly ergonomic grip for thrusting.
Patchy Paul is rechargeable and charges by the click n charge method. The charger magnetically attaches to a metal "Fun" symbol on the base of the handle. The only problem with this charging method is the charging cable. If the cable is not perfectly straight it will twist and some times lose contact with the toy and charging ceases until you catch the problem. This happened several times throughout the charging process. The instructions say it may take up to twelve hours for the initial charge. Mine took around six hours. Paul is supposed to run a half hour on high from a full charge.
Paul is very powerful and has fairly deep vibrations. On the face of the loop of love there are three buttons. A plus, a minus, and an asterisk. The steady vibrations will increase or decrease incrementally if you choose to continue to depress the button for every level. If you depress the plus button and hold it down the speed will increase gracefully and smoothly to the maximum speed. The Asterisk will change through four patterns.
1) A rumble
2) Low pulse
3) A deeper pulse
4) A slow to high repeating pattern
Magic touch technology is a nice feature of this vibe. The buttons light up with activity. I'm not sure exactly what causes the buttons to activate and glow but it's cool. I found I had no problems with water and was able to use Paul in the bathtub, hot-tub and shower. Paul is fairly quiet during use and is hard to hear behind a closed door.
Paul is easy to care for. Simply wash with warm water and antibacterial soap before and after use. Toy cleaner or toy wipes can also be used. Paul is silicone, so silicone lube is a no no and could make Paul's surface melt and become permanently sticky. Store Paul individually in a plastic bag or other storage device.
