Liberte is non-porous, phthalates free, hypo-allergenic, made with food-grade material and latex free. There is virtually no smell, even when held right up to my nose. It has almost like a smooth powdery feel to it, which I like. The head of it has a small curve upwards for g-spot stimulation and along the top of the shaft is sort of ridged. Slightly hard to explain, but it gives a fabulous feeling when penetrating vaginally. I have not tried this toy anally. I would say the texture is perfect for anyone interested in a little added stimulation, be it someone curious about texture or a seasoned texture user.
I love the design of the Liberte 3. When I first took her out of the package my first thought was "wow, small". However, she really has more punch than she looks like she has. I don't know if it is the texture, the small curve on the head or the vibrations, but she is amazing. As I said, she is rather small compared to my other favorite toys. She measures 6 1/4" in length with 5 1/4" insertable, 3 1/2" in circumference and weighs only 3 oz. This makes her the perfect discreet toy for hiding in a purse, overnight bag or nightstand. If you are a size queen, you might not like her, but I would definitely say if she piques your interest, you must give her a try! If I saw her in a store I probably wouldn't purchase her, but now that I have her, I'm glad I do!
Her controls are very easy to figure out. There is a button on the base, push it to turn it on and continue pushing it to go through each pattern of vibrations. She has 7 vibration patterns. The first one is a solid vibration, the second one is a stronger solid vibration, the third is an even stronger solid vibration. All of the solid patterns are great, very strong and WOW! The fourth pattern is an excallating vibration from low to high. The fifth pattern is almost like a tapping vibration as well as the sixth pattern which is a faster tapping pattern. The seventh pattern is almost like a tap tap tap taaaaapppp. The seventh is my favorite one to get me started. If used under a blanket or behind a closed door she is undetectable. She takes two triple A batteries which, so far, seem to keep the power for a good long time. I have not used her in the water, though she is supposed to be waterproof.
She is silicone, so don't use silicone based lube with this toy as it can break down the silicone properties of it. Easy to clean and care for. I rinse her under hot water. You can also use toy cleaner. She is easy to store due to her small size.
As I said, if I saw this toy in a store I probably would have bypassed her and not purchased her. But, now that I have her I am SO HAPPY! She is small, powerful, quiet and packs one hell of a punch! Give her a try, you will love her!
