Sugar is made of a soft and supple TPR and velvety plastic. The TPR is phthalates and latex free, hypo-allergenic, and food-grade making it safe for the body. TPR can eventually break down, so the life of this toy is not infinite. The body of the vibrator and the part that does the penetrating and vibrating is formed out of this TPR. It is clear, showing the exact positioning of the inner lying vibrating bullets. The material has a very light smell of chemicals, that goes away quickly with time and little to no taste.
The TPR allows the separate shafts to be able to flex and bend with ease. The give makes the toy safer for use. Less attention has to be paid to making sure a cervix or public bone doesn't get bruised. The surface of the material is smooth and soft. The softness makes it attract dust and lint over time if not covered, or if dropped on a carpet. Cleaning before and after use is recommended for the safest play. Since TPR is not completely non-porous, using a condom can keep out harmful bacteria and prevent the toy from harboring it.
The plastic is also safe for the body. It is used to house the batteries and the controls for the vibrator. The matte feel makes it easier to hold the vibrator if it gets wet or smeared with lubricant. The plastic is strong and unlikely to crack.
The sugar can fit in the palm of my hand because it is only 6 3/4" in total length. The insertable length is less than half of this distance. The circumference is smaller than average also and is 4 1/2", which makes full penetration hard. Both shafts are ribbed and shaped like artistic phalli. The heads of the shafts are slightly odd looking. They resemble melting jelly beans. The clitoral attachment is not an animal shape, like many other rabbit style vibrators.
Because of the flexible material the shafts are able to bend which is a great part of the spine-less design. The clitoral attachment can be moved to where the user wishes it to go. The weight is also a plus. At less than a pound, Sugar is easy to maneuver and hold. The bullets are also placed in the heads or near the heads of the shafts providing vibration where it is needed. The rounded base makes controlling the vibration easy and free of frustration.
The bright pink color makes the Sugar hard to blend in. The duo phallic shaped shafts also don't say discreet. The box for this toy is equally as small and can be used to hide the toy, but it is clear and the toy can still be seen. It is good for travel though.
Sugar has a no fuss control system. A single easy to push button is located on the bottom of the rounded end. Pushing it once will start the first of three steady vibration levels. The first level is a steady flutter and a low intensity. It cannot be heard, even by someone sitting 5 feet away. Pressing the button again increases the vibration to be slightly faster. This level can only be heard if not inside the body. The third press of the button nearly doubles the vibration to a medium-high level that can also be heard if outside the body. The vibrator is very quiet, probably sue to its size. Pressing the button again, turns it off.
Sugar is waterproof too. You can use her in the shower or even submerge her in the tub. She remains extremely quiet while submerged and withstood both the shower and tub tests. A seal in the battery compartment makes it water proof. Make sure to have the end cap screwed on securely before playing near or in water.
TPR can be cleaned with soap and warm water or with an anti-bacterial toy cleanser. Do not attempt to boil or dish wash this toy. When storing it, the packaging is a great place. Otherwise, make sure to not have it in contact of other toys. Do not use oil based lubricant with this material. Instead use silicone or water based lubricants. This toy takes two AAA batteries which are not included. Remove them from the compartment when not in use.
This new line by Evolved has very nice packaging. The decorative metal tin houses the vibrator, while a thick plastic top allows the owner to see into the case. Raised words give the case texture and unique character while the art work makes it aesthetically pleasing. If it weren't for the clear top, this tin would be discreet since there are no graphic images or terms. The inside has information about how to obtain a warranty. The back has a blurb about the toy and safety concerns.
Objective rating: 4 stars
The Sugar is super easy to use and very quiet! The material doesn't have a foul smell and is a breeze to clean. The flexible design helps to fit more womens bodies, and the different vibration levels offer a little variety, but not much. The two lower levels are not very strong. The decorative tin makes it a very nice gift especially since it has a nice product warranty.

Sugar did satisfy my sweet tooth, but didn't leave me wowed. I liked that the flexible shafts made it easy to line up the vibrations with my anatomy. The vaginal shaft was not long enough for adequate vaginal insertion however and so the ribbing is missed. I only used the highest level of vibration because the two lower ones, didn't provide much. One thing I really like about this rabbit vibrator other than it not having an actual rabbit, is that the shaft does not move. It doesn't thrust or have rotating beads or anything else distracting. It allowed me to focus on both stimulation.
Using this on a male was a lot of fun. The shafts were the perfect size and length, that when help upside down, one hits the penis and the other lies on the balls. The highest level of vibration also is the only one used often.
