The Honey Pot is made with a hard plastic base and core. The insertable portion is covered with a very smooth silicone gel that forms to the touch. If you squeeze onto it, it will form with you. According to the Icon Brands website, although this silicone gel is soft and pliable, it is still non-porous and phthalates free.
The top of the toy has ribbing on it just like a honey dipper would, which adds extra stimulation for the user. The shaft is long and smooth with no added texture. With the softness of the material, the texture should not bother anyone, even those non-texture lovers out there. It does have quite a bit of drag, so you will want to break out the lube with this one for sure.
This toy is a total length of 8.5 inches with an insertable length of 5.5 inches. The 3 inch long handle is wide and more flat, so it makes it easy to hold onto during use. The shaft is 0.75 inches in diameter, and the bulbous, ribbed, honey dipper head is 1.5 inches across at its widest point. Being that it is long and rather skinny, it can be easily tossed into a drawer without notice.
It is powered by 2 AAA batteries that screw into the base of the toy.
The Honey Pot is controlled by a single button located on the handle. Simply push it once to start one of the 5 functions and hold it down for about 3 seconds to shut it down. It has no memory of the last setting, so you always start at the same place.
The functions are as follows:
1 - starts at a slow pulse, moves to a medium pulse, and up to fast pulse and then starts again.
2 - slow pulse, steady, medium pulse, steady
3 - fast pulse
4 - steady vibration
5 - steady vibration, fast pulse
The different speeds and patterns of the vibrations for each function change every 5 seconds or so. The vibrations are high pitched and buzzy. It can get a little on the loud side, so you will want to use this one under a blanket with the door closed if there are prying ears around.
The Honey Pot is indeed waterproof, so washing it under warm water with mild soap is fine. You can also use your favorite toy cleaner or toy wipes. You can sanitize it with a 10% bleach solution as well.
As with all silicone toys, you will want to keep away from silicone based lube because it could potentially ruin the surface of your toy. Sticking to water based is best. Store it just about anywhere but next to jelly toys, which could possibly melt into it over time. It could also be store in the plastic packaging it came in, but the box is rather bulky and best left for the recycle bin.
