The insertable portion is made of 100% silicone and is semi-firm. It has a velvety feel, and is matte in appearance, not shiny or pearlized at all. This texture means it will hold lube well and not be slippery in your hands, which is important when you're using something small that vibrates. The toy has no smell or taste whatsoever. The vibrator is housed in a plastic portion, inside the silicone cover. It is only visible on the bottom of the toy.
The design is a sort of abstract 'S' shape, with a flared 'T' shaped bottom - as you can see in the product photo. This makes it good for nestling against a g-spot or prostate, but not great for thrusting. It is a small toy - at only 3 inches insertable. If using anally, this is an intermediate size with little give - so not for beginners. It's discreet and would travel well as long as the batteries are removed.
I was surprised to find that I could remove the plastic vibrator stem from the toy. It slides right out, making the toy more of a sleeve and vibrator combo. This aspect opens up many possibilities for play.
This is a one speed, one button (on and off) toy. You click the button on the bottom, it starts buzzing; you click it again, it turns off. Simple. It did not turn off accidentally when I used it and is not as easy to bump as most push button controls; this button is not really raised.
This is not a waterproof toy. There is a latch on the bottom for the battery compartment, you slide your finger in the divet and pull forward to release the small cover. The toy takes 1 AAA battery and seems to have pretty good battery life. It's not a very loud toy - it has a steady vibration, not quite as loud as a pocket rocket but still a little louder than a cell phone on vibration setting.
You can take the two pieces apart and fully wash the insertable portion by boiling for up to 3 minutes, using a 10% bleach solution or putting it in your dishwasher's top rack with no soap. However, the battery compartment/vibrator portion can only be wiped clean - it is not at all waterproof. They do not advertise that there are two pieces; however I used them separately without issues. Just make sure if you clean it while the two pieces are together, to keep the bottom dry and make sure no water gets into the space between the vibe and the cover.
Water-based only lubricants with this one, as it is not compatible with silicone lube.
If you have ever bought a Vixen Creations toy, this is very similar. It is a clear cylinder with a plastic cap on either end and copy on the insert, that wraps around the toy, with a window for you to see the product. All the important information about the product is visible on the insert from the outside.
The packaging insert flips over to reveal instructions on how to prepare your body to use this product, as well as how to clean the toy.
You can easily use the tube for storage.
I liked using this toy as two separate pieces. I slipped the insertable toy over my finger for penetration without the worry of my nails or the need to use more than one finger. Very cool to have this option. And the vibrator fits inside all of the dildos I tried it in, any dildo with a hole in the bottom seemed to work. It is not as snug as a bullet typically is, but it is powerful and a cool option to have because the vibrator takes 1 AAA.
I think we'll use the two pieces more often separate than not.
