Patti's exterior is made of ABS plastic. It has a smooth feel to it.
The decorative, metallic band is also plastic. That is the only textured part of the toy. You will not be inserting Patti far enough to feel the texture on the band. It also isn't in the right location to serve as a grip during use.
Patti is completely unscented. She is also phthalate-free, latex-free and hypoallergenic.
Patti is of moderate size with a circumference of 4 3/4 inches. She is completely hard and does not bend even a little. Patti resembles the Dream Massager G in shape and function. Here is Patti (top) shown next to the Dream Massager G (bottom):
Patti is powered by 3 AAA batteries. The motor is located in the area right above the metallic band but the vibrations travel very well to the tip. Vibrations can be felt as strongly in the tip as in the middle section. The tip curves just somewhat to provide a little extra G-spot stimulation.
She is powered by a single control button at the bottom. The cap has a tab that inserts into a notch in the body of the vibrator to make it easy to align the cap correctly after batteries are inserted. Plus and minus arrows next to each battery slot assist you with correct insertion.
The entire vibrator is only 5 1/2 inches long with only 3 1/2 inches insertable. The insertable portion is long enough to reach most women's G-spots but the remaining part does not make a particularly generous handle.
Patti's vibrations are both strong and incredibly deep. You can actually see her moving back and forth when it's on. The vibrations do mute down when the vibrator is pressed against the body or inserted. They are as strong and deep as the vibrations of Tango.
Patti, however, makes more noise than Tango. She isn't particularly noisy, but you will need to have music on when you use her if you want others who pass near your door not to hear her.
A single button on the bottom controls the vibrator. Pressing it moves Patti through her three vibration strengths. Pressing a fourth time turns her off. The button is easy to locate and press during use.
The handle portion is completely symmetrical so you may have difficulty telling whether Patti is still aligned with the G-spot tip pointing up during use. In practice, Patti doesn't rotate.
Patti is a waterproof vibrator, making her safe to use in the bath or shower. A rubber gasket inside the cap ensures that no water enters the battery compartment.
Patti is waterproof and made of non-porous materials. She is therefore quite easy to clean. Simply wash with soap and water, then towel dry.
Any lubricant is safe to use with this product.
Patti comes in a clear plastic box attractively decorated with artwork and basic product information. Inside this is a formed plastic insert that holds the vibrator in place for display. The packaging is not recyclable. You will probably not want to store Patti in its original container. Patti is durable enough that she can be safely stored without a storage container or wrapping.
