The toy itself is made of very smooth silicone on the body of the toy, but the part that unscrews so that you can put your batteries inside feels like a type of plastic. There is a seam that runs down both the front and back of the toy which can be easily seen and can be felt with your hands, but in use it almost seems non-existent. The company logo can be seen close to the cap on the side, and if you insert the toy fully it can be felt, but for most women this will not be needed, as it should reach the G-spot much sooner.
The toy itself is simple in shape. It has a shaft and a curve at the end, and a couple of ripples, which might remind one of the sort you'd see in a realistic-penis shaped toy. The toy is about 6" from the top to the part that curves, and slightly longer if you were to include the curve itself.
G-spot vibrators are excellent to include in solo play as well as with a partner, and this one is no exception to that! It isn't, however, safe for any type of anal play, as there is no flared base, and it is also short, so it may be easy to let go of by mistake and possibly get lost where it shouldn't!
It is simple and yet serves its purpose very well!
To insert the batteries to your toy, you will simply want to unscrew the cap. Located on the sides that the cap was covering are your "+" and "-", which are easy to miss if you don't know where to look. Simply insert the batteries, line the grooves up with the little nodules in the cap, and screw it back on. To start one of the cycles, which range from low to high and include several different pulse variations, just press the button located on the top of the cap closest to the side that the G-spot curve is facing. Press again to switch to another cycle, or hold down to turn it off. It is easy to switch from one cycle to the next, but in use you will want to be careful not to press the button, which might be a mood killer!
While some of the cycles are very quiet, others can be a bit noisy. Luckily, it is not so loud that it could be heard from outside of a closed door, but others in the room may hear it. If you have roommates, you may want to turn on some music or a fan that makes a little bit of noise to drown it out.
The toy is splash-proof; however, it is not waterproof, so do not try to submerge your toy during play or for cleaning. To clean, the company advises using only warm water and soap, not boiling or using any type of toy cleaner. Alcohol wipes are not recommended for this toy to clean, as even toy cleaners that contain alcohol are advised against. Because this toy cannot be sterilized, unlike many silicone toys which typically can, you will want to consider toy covers or condoms if you plan to share this with a partner. A good water-based lubricant is recommended with this toy, to keep it in perfect condition.
After use and the toy has been cleaned, the toy can be easily stored anywhere from a toy box (avoid placing next to other silicone toys, as they may interact negatively with one another) or a sock drawer! It is small, so it is easy to hide, but if one were to see it, it is very obvious that it is a sex toy. Another great aspect to being a smaller toy is that it is easy to put in your purse for travel!
On average, you should get a few good hours out of the batteries if you were to turn the toy on and run it constantly; however, the ones it comes with do not last that long. Another thing you will want to do is remove the batteries when the toy is not in use, as it can drain them even when it is off. While it does suck up batteries quickly, it is certainly worth replacing them when it does!
Shots Media didn't go all out on the packaging, though it doesn't lack for a more subtle look to the box.
When you first receive your toy, it will be in a black and white box with a cut-out in the front to show off your toy. The box is easy to open, and the toy is encased in a plastic shell that is easy to open. What is especially nice is that the company was nice enough to include the 2 AAA batteries it will take to operate the toy. That is rare, so even if you don't have the batteries on hand, you won't have to go out and buy some right away! The only thing to note about them is that they don't last as long as your traditional high-grade batteries, so you may only get a couple of uses out of them depending on the length of your play.
Also inside of your box you will find 2 instruction books, one for Dutch, Russian, Polish and Italian readers, and the other for English, French, German and Spanish readers. The instructions are very easy to understand and explain everything you will need to know about your toy.
I personally enjoyed this toy. It was one of the first G-spot vibrators I've tried, and while the vibrations were not strong enough to give me a clitoral orgasm while using it externally, it certainly worked a whole lot better for its intended purpose. It did drain my batteries fairly quickly, so I decided to use the rechargeable ones for it, because otherwise I would be going through batteries like crazy!
