The iTap "G" Vibe is made of hard plastic with what California Exotics calls a Velvet Cote. Which is a great name for it because the surface is so smooth and velvety, and has a nice tug to it when caressing the body. It is phthalate free, hypoallergenic, latex free, making it very body friendly. This vibrator has no noticeable smell or taste.
The design of the "G" Vibe is a standard type vibrator that curves forward and is rather pointy right at the tip. The shape is somewhat good for G-Spot stimulation but works extremely well if you like pinpoint accuracy and pressure on the clitoris. This vibrator is 7 ½ inches long with 6 of those inches being insertable. The girth is 1 inch in diameter. This would be considered a smaller girth, but it would still be pleasant for those who like a bit more girth due to the velvet cote and strong vibrations. This would definitely not be considered a discreet toy.
The vibrations of this "G" Vibe are controlled by touching a spot at the bottom of the base. It is extremely easy to use and it needs only the slightest touch. Beware though, it is extremely sensitive and very easy to skip a function level. So long as you aren't holding this toy at the very bottom you should have no problems with it changing functions during use.
This runs on 2 AA batteries which are inserted into the removable base. It works well with either standard or rechargeable batteries.
There are five different functions: the first one is a medium level steady vibration, the next is a very strong steady vibration, the third is two short then one long pulse, the fourth is a rapid pulse, and finally the fifth is a high low pulse. You must cycle through all of the functions to turn it off. The vibrations are felt throughout the whole vibrator but are a bit more pronounced in the upper half. This is a fairly noisy vibrator. It would not be heard through a closed door but definitely can be heard through the covers or across a room.
Cleaning is easy with this vibrator, just wash it with soap and water. But take care not to immerse it or get the base wet. Also please use a condom if you will be sharing this vibrator since it is not sterilizable.
It is recommended that you use either water based or silicone lubricants with this toy.
I would recommend that you remove the batteries between uses because it can start vibrating from anything touching the base.
I really liked this vibrator. It is strong, even on it's lowest setting. The first function is more of a medium strength but deep vibration, and the second one is much stronger and higher pitched. Even the pulsating functions on this are very nice. California Exotics Velvet Cote is quickly becoming one of my favorite textures. I love the way it feels when moving it around, it has a nice resistance to it, as opposed to something that is made of a shiny hard plastic or metal. I didn't have a G-Spot orgasm with this but I had a lot of fun trying. However, this is the "bomb" for clitoral use. I also like this for partner use. Due to it's length and slender girth, I had no trouble putting it and holding it where I needed during intercourse.
