Smooth. That is what comes to mind as you run your fingers over this toy. Smooth is what you think as you slide the Wow Vibe down to your girly bits. Made from exquisite silicone, the Wow No. 4 Vibe is non-porous, phthalates-free, hypoallergenic, and latex-free. There is no noticeable smell, and I did not taste the toy, sorry. The toy is obviously smooth, but it is also rather firm. It is not as stiff as plastic, but firm enough to apply great pressure where needed.
The Wow No. 4 Vibe is shaped like a traditional G-spot toy, meaning that it is slightly curved in order to give the user a better angle to reach the G-spot. This particular toy is divided into sections, much like a human finger only much larger. This toy has an insertable length of 6", a circumference of 5.25", and a diameter of 1 5/8". It is also very sturdy, weighing in at 15 ounces; so, basically, it weighs a pound. While the design does not scream "sex toy" like a realistic dildo, I am not sure what else it could pose as, so be careful when storing it or traveling.
This toy's controls are rather simple. It has two buttons, one on either side of the handle. One button is an on and off switch, while the other changes through the 10 different vibration settings. The different settings are pretty standard: there are different strengths of steady vibration, various pulsing rhythms, and escalating vibrations. We did not try it in the water, but the box says it is waterproof and can be used in the tub or shower.
Because the toy is so smooth, there are no nooks or crevices that would make it hard to clean. Simply use soap and water or a universal toy cleaner. Make sure to dry it well before you store it. Also, because it is made of silicone, do not use silicone-based lubes in order not to damage the vibe. We used Astroglide and it worked very well.
I usually do not comment on packaging; but this toy came in a heavy-duty box and the inside was lined with a satin-like material. I felt like I was getting a royal sex toy!
