I didn't notice a bad smell to the material (which is TPR- a polymer blend). It has a smooth, soft, but firm texture. It feels good inside the vagina. It isn't cold feeling which adds to the realism. It is also easy to clean with soap and water. It is bumpy because the silver balls rotate inside the shaft. This feels very nice and elevates the experience. It doesn't seem porous either. TPR is semi-porous. I rather like this material.
The design of this vibrator is amazing. Like I mentioned earlier, it has a nice girth and length. It fills you up. The multi-speed vibration and rotation of its parts in key areas make it frankly genius. This is the best toy I have ever used. I would recommend it to anyone. It is a little noisy though. This takes away from how discreet it is, which is a shame really. If it were a little quieter, it would be 100%, the world's perfect toy. I cannot say enough good things about the design of this toy. All the features work together so flawlessly.
I didn't fumble terribly with the controls. The lights are a nice feature. Once I memorized the controls (which was easy to do), it was simple to change settings without looking. It wasn't an uncomfortable movement for my hands and fingers. It's very easy to use.
The rotation of the tip is a great feature. It keeps rotating around and hitting the g-spot as the unit and clitoral stimulator vibrate. While all of this is happening, you can still thrust it in and out of your vagina. It's almost sensory overload...in a good way!
As I mentioned earlier, it is a bit of a noisy toy. I would be nervous using it while my son is at home. It is a powerful unit though, which is a good trade off in my opinion.
This toy can be used in a variety of functions and settings. It doesn't seem to drain the batteries too fast either. I use 3 AA rechargeable batteries. Overall it is a GREAT product!
This toy is very easy to take care of. It can be washed with soap and water. There are no narrow creases that are hard to clean. I store it in a separate bag in a drawer. It can be used with silicone or water-based lubricants. I used it with a water-based lubricant and it was great. It cleaned up easily as well. It is recommended that you use condoms when sharing this toy though.
I wish the packaging was a little more discreet as it had a drawing of the vibrator on the plastic packaging. Because of this, I did not put the plastic packaging in the recycling. I hid it in the garbage. The packaging was a good size. It wasn't too big. There were instructions in the package, but it was so easy to use that I didn't even read them.
