Upon opening the box for the Power Thumper, I was hit with its strong odor. The TPR could be the culprit of this. Once washed with soap and water the smell decreases. I also noticed that after use, you can smell the mechanics working - almost like an electrical smell.
The material is extremely nice to the touch. It makes the vibrations, rotations, and feeling of the beads a lot more noticeable. The beads can be felt tremendously through the soft rubbery material. The rotation of the beads causes the head on the shaft to rotate just enough for a lot of fun inside too.
The tip of the toy is designed to look like the real thing. There is a lip underneath the head which will need extra notice while cleaning. Be sure to wash this product well with soap and water. It is water proof, so handling with extra care near the water isn't necessary. TPR cannot be boiled for disinfecting and sterilizing, so be sure to use an antibacterial soap instead.
The material is extremely flexible. You can pull and tug on it and it stretches quite far. Just be careful though, if you tug too far on the head the attachments will pop off and you'll have to realign everything to be just right once again.
The taste isn't too bad when you first try it. There is definitely an after taste that sticks around for a while.
The 5 1/4 inch shaft is taken up mainly by the rotating beads inside. The beads start approximately 1" above the base of the rabbit, and extend approximately 2" below the head. There are four levels of beads that rotate not only themselves but also causes the 2" that remains above it to rotate also. The lip of the head was just large enough to make a difference inside. While inserted the beads hit perfectly around the outside edges of your vagina and enough inside to make you squirm.
The rabbit is approximately 4" from the base to the tip of the ears. I thought this was perfect. The top of the head of the rabbit hit my clitoris while the ears were able to wrap around it. Although, because of this, it would have been nicer to have the ears be a bit shorter than what they are.
I thought the entire size was perfect for me. The beads were positioned just right to hit the "O" spots. The head rotated slightly, but just enough to make it extremely pleasurable. The rabbit's head and ears were just right at the clitoris.
With that being said, this toy is a bigger toy being that it’s a rabbit. It's not discreet at all. It's quite large in that aspect. Hiding this little thumping rabbit will prove to be challenging.
To be honest, I don't know if my product is malfunctioning or whether or not that is just how it's designed. It's also slightly confusing. There are four controls located on the end. Vibro, Spin, Hi/Lo, Rev.
To turn on the vibrations you have to push the "Vibro" button. This will start the vibrations. After that, you can push whether or not you want it on high or low by pushing the "Hi/Lo" button. I had a very tough time distinguishing the difference between the two. The vibrations are located only in the rabbit portion. There are absolutely no vibrations felt other than at the base of the shaft where the rabbit begins and in the rabbit itself. The tip of the Thumper definitely isn't one you'd use on vibrate to tease as a clitoral vibrator.
This is where it gets a bit confusing. I'm still trying to play around with it and figure it out. I believe for the rotation buttons, to turn on and off the rotation of the beads, you hit the "Spin" button. The "Rev" button will then change whether or not it is turning clockwise or counter-clockwise. I'm not entirely sure if this is necessarily the way it is supposed to work. (There are no instructions that come with this product.)
This is what my Power Thumper does when trying to turn on the rotating beads. If you push spin, on and off, it will not work. You must turn on the "Rev" button and then push "Spin". When it is like that you can turn the rotation on and off with either the "Spin" button or the "Rev" button. If you continuously push the "Spin" button on and off, it will not turn on. If you continuously push the "Rev" button on and off, it will not turn on. The only way I've found to turn on the rotation is pushing the "Rev" button then the "Spin" button, or vice versa until it turns on. Like I said, I don't know if this is a design flaw amongst all of the Power Thumpers, or if it was just mine. Please be sure to check out the other reviews and see what they say about this.
Now, unfortunately, the "Hi/Lo" button does not work for the rotation. There aren't different speeds for the rotation, just one default speed for it.
The vibration is extremely powerful. Whether or not it’s on high or low, it's also very quiet. Something I found to happen was upon orgasm with this product - which by the way, only took mere minutes - while having a clitoral orgasm the vibrations became way too much. It was such an intense clitoral orgasm that I couldn't stand to have it continue.
As for the rotating beads, and as stated before, they sit perfectly. They also feel amazing. The buttons are easily able to be pushed so it's a lot of fun to turn the rotation on and off for a little extra excitement. Unfortunately, the rotation of the beads and the thinness of the material cause the rotation to be extremely loud. It's absolutely no discreet at all. Even with a fan and an air conditioner going around me you could clearly hear something was going on underneath the sheets. If you want to be discreet, stick to the vibration part only. That is, if you can keep quiet when it gets you thumping.
I keep my Power Thumper in its original packaging. While it isn't necessarily a small box to keep this in, I'd rather it be kept away then in the environment since it is slightly porous. The TPR material can be used with silicon and water based lubes. Like previously stated, if you're planning on sharing this toy, it’s advised to use a condom. It is more porous than silicone, so it’s best to just careful with this product and be safe. You should never boil this product to disinfect it. You can use toy wipes/cleaners or a mild antibacterial soap with water.
All in all, it’s an easy toy to store; it’s just not discreet because of its size. It is also very easy to clean. Be sure to check the head and around the lip of the head to ensure that it is clean. It has a small ridge underneath the head on the shaft that is indented. This is a perfect spot for fluids to get caught.
