The material this beauty is made of is plastic with TPR. See here for a description of TPR. There was no smell when I opened the box. The feel of this toy is sleek, smooth and sensual. I like the silkiness of the materials when moving across my places. The toy itself is semi rigid with a bit of flexibility on the TPR half where it makes contact.
The design is wonderful with a little curly-cue to hold on to. The button for controlling the vibrations is easily accessible while holding the toy with one finger in the curl. The shape is excellent for sliding this toy up and down across the clitoris. When using the vibrations, there is no noise to be heard through doors. On the highest level, this toy is barely heard across the room! It is small enough to keep in a discreet hiding spot and can easily pack for travel. Overall size is a little less than the average remote, and about as big around as a banana.
Pushing the single button on the top of this toy activates the first of seven levels of vibrating pleasure. This toy begins on the low level with very mild vibrations similar to a phone vibrating quietly and escalates with each push to its highest vibration before engaging in pulsating rhythms that will rock your world. Vibrations can be felt around the whole lower half of this toy, so it can be used in a variety of positions. This toy uses N-2 batteries and they are supplied with the toy. As I said before, this toy is "whisper quiet" as it states on the box it came in. It states that it is waterproof, and I tested this in the shower with no water seepage.
Care for this toy is mainly keeping the lint off of it. It needs to be washed before using due to the fact that it picks up everything it comes in contact with. I used soap and water for cleaning this, but you can get a cleaner that is safe to use with the materials. I keep this in a metal lock box and it still picks up lint. Be sure to use a silicone or water based lube that is compatible with this material.
The packaging for this toy was nice because it actually came in a little box instead of the clam-shell type packaging that toys usually come in. The box is clear, so not discreet for opening the shipping package in the presence of children or roommates you don't want to see. There were no added directions for use, but there is writing all over the box detailing the features of this toy. It does state on the bottom of the box, in very small letters, to "wash before and after use, remove batteries when not in use, use water based lubrication, sold as a novelty."
After reading another review on this toy, I was excited to try this out. This is small, about the size of my hand from the wrist to fingers and two fingers wide at the part that comes in contact with your body. I like the pulsing vibrations and was super excited about the fact that this is whisper quiet. I loved the way this feels sliding on my body, especially in the shower when my hubby was teasing me while I washed my hair! The soap on my body combined with the silkiness of this toy caused it to slide effortlessly. I really like this one and will keep it in my first choice box.
