This toy is made of silicone. The texture is velvety smooth. It wont catch on your skin or provide any discomfort, especially when used with your favorite water based lubricant. There is some mild contour to the toy making it designed to hit on just the right spot, but does not have any predominant ridging that would provide additional friction.
The shape of this toy could be considered a squashed "C". It is designed for vaginal insertion to provide stimulation both internally and externally. One thing that this toy lacks compared to some of its competition is a vibrating motor on the interior portion of the toy. The only motor is on the outside and the vibrations travel through the toy to the inside. This makes the toy slightly less intense compared to the others. The size and shape are great for beginners in this genre of toys as it is less intimidating than say the We Vibe or others.
The new/second attachement piece to the toy has a contoured section in the center allowing the man's penis to easily glide with the toy without creating any discomfort for both parties.
This toy is remote controlled and utilizes Lelo's sense motion technology. This means that the person holding the remote is able to feel the same type of vibration being felt by the wearer of the toy. This takes all the confusion out of those moments where you think to yourself "I hit the button 5 times... What pattern is that?" The patterns are not our thing, but they are creative and arousing. The toy performs as well as you would expect a toy of this caliber. It is quiet, comfortable, and relatively easy to use once you've familiarized yourself with the controls. The remote requires batteries (AAA), but the toy itself is rechargeable which is a HUGE bonus so long as you aren't trying to get it recharged in a hurry. It doesn't take more than a couple hours for it to be back up to full charge.
The best way to keep this toy good as new is to do the following:
1) Clean it after every use using either toy cleaner, or some warm water and a bit of mild soap.
2) Run it down periodically if you don't normally and give it a full charge. This wards off any battery memory that may or may not be a myth.
3) Avoid getting water into the charging port, or into the remote.
4) Check the remote batteries periodically to ensure corrosion isn't taking place. That is a sure fire way to kill your new favorite toy!
In our experience, this product did exactly what it was supposed to do. We have had some issues with shifting when using it in certain positions, but all in all it stays in place well. The urge can be to use a lot of lubricant to help things slide better, but in our case, we found that too much lube just made the toy perform sloppily as it was difficult to have it stay in one place and required frequent adjustment. All in all, this is still one of our favorite toys. Well worth the initial investment.
