The entire body surface (shaft and clitoral arm) are coated in a smooth matte silicone. The majority of the toy is smooth, however at the base of the insertable portion there is a series of raised wave-like ridges for additional stimulation.
The handle is a firm ABS plastic.
Silicone is of course one of the safest toy materials, being hypoallergenic and non-porous. There are no odors or taste associated with the Sensation.
Sensation has a luxurious design that's easy to hold, and sensible. The curved shaft and bulged tip are crafted to contour to the G-spot. The non-animalistic clitoral attachment is flexible, therefore can work with a variety of different anatomies.
The overall size of the vibrator is fairly compact. The length measures approximately 7 inches, with 4 inches being insertable. The clitoral attachment measures near 2 1/4 inches from the base to tip.
Sensation would make a great travel companion, especially if protected in a sturdy case to avoid accidentally turning it on. It is not discreet and can easily be recognized as a sex toy.
The vibrator is charged through a USB cable, through computer or wall adapter. While charging, small purple LED lights flash across the area where the control buttons are located.
There are 3 buttons that operate the Sensation. The buttons are small and raised and completely built into the toy.
The middle button operates the toy, to turn it on the button must be pressed and held for 2 seconds. The middle button then operates the vibrators functions.
The functions are as follows:
1. Steady vibration in the shaft and clitoral arm
2. Steady vibration in only the clitoral arm
3. Quick pulses of vibration that alternate between the shaft/clit attachment
4. Quick pulses in the shaft only
5. Steady vibration in the clitoral arm and pulsations through the shaft
6. Long steady vibrations alternating between shaft/arm
7. Back to steady vibration
During each function, the (+) and (-) buttons can be used to increase and decrease the vibration intensity. They can vary from a very gentle hum, to a pretty intense rumble, making it suitable for the user's personal preference.
Silicone toys like the Sensation are relatively easy to care for and maintain. Since this vibrator is not 100% waterproof it can be washed with soap and water avoiding the area of the charging port. It can also be cleaned with a toy spray or wipes.
Use only a water-based lubricant to avoid any potential interactions and store the toy away from other silicone toys.
The vibrator was simply packaged in a bag with the USB charging cable and a small instruction booklet.
Overall, I think this is a great vibrator. Because of the size, I especially think it would be great for beginners who might be intimidated by the large size and many moving parts of most rabbit-style vibes.
