The feature that makes this toy worth looking into is for sure the dual texture feature. On one half is a bright-colored, firm TPE and the other half is smooth, white plastic. There is a very noticeable seam in between these two materials which can be annoying to clean, but you can't feel the seam itself during use, just the difference in materials. They are divided in a cute, squiggly shape.
Out of the box this toy has no scent or taste, and hasn't retained either after use. The plastic is very smooth and slippery, and if you want to use that side clitorally it doesn't require any lube. The other side, however, has quite a bit of drag and most users may prefer to use a bit of lubricant with it.
The TPE side can clearly be felt in use, and the difference is fairly dramatic inserted, as well. When thrusting you can tell which side is which, especially because of the pull on your vaginal entrance. You can also feel the difference between the two when they come in contact with your g-spot, and it really is a great way to compare the different materials.
I would recommend this toy for both beginners and advanced users, especially if you're just looking to experiment with textures and materials. Advanced users will appreciate the new and different feeling that the two materials give this toy, especially used internally. Plastic is rated an 8 out of 10 on the EdenFantasys Safety Scale, while TPE is a 6. This means that if you plan to share between partners you should use a condom because the surface may retain bacteria after cleaning.
The design of this is pretty basic, and it does look quite a bit like a vibrator. I really can't imagine anything else that this toy could pass as, but it doesn't look super realistic. It is completely straight and has no curves or bulges.
Personally I could use this on my g-spot fairly easily, but I also have been able to use almost every toy for light g-spotting. I would recommend this for both insertion and external use, especially for beginners. If the dual-texture doesn't appeal to an advanced user, the shape of this wouldn't be a reason to purchase it. It also isn't good for a 'size queen' who needs a 'filling' feeling, but if you haven't had many insertable toys this is a great place to start. It is 4 inches insertable and 3.75 inches around, making it not very intimidating to new users.
This toy would be good for travel, but I would recommend taking the batteries out beforehand. If found by security it wouldn't look like a weapon, but it may be obvious what it is you're taking with you on vacation.
While this toy is not a powerhouse, it does have pretty substantial power. With a sensitive clitoris, I found the first setting to be good externally, and internally the second setting was substantially strong. It has three settings which are controlled by a push-button on the base. When you press this once it turns on to the lowest setting, which I would put at a 1.5 vrooms, the second is a 2.5 vrooms, and the third is a high 3 vrooms. On the highest setting I would rate this a 2 bees because it can't be heard over the shower at all or through a door.
The vibrations are moderately rumbly, which I appreciate, but aren't anywhere near some of my more expensive silicone toys. They are located about in the middle of the shaft, but travel well to the tip of the toy. If you are holding this firmly for a long period of time you may find that your fingers get numb, but because the vibrations aren't too buzzy it is much nicer to hold than say a bullet vibrator.
My two problems with this toy is that you can change the settings fairly easily while thrusting due to the placement of the button, and then the fact that you have to cycle all the way through the settings in order to turn this off. I have had no problems with water getting into the battery compartment during use in the shower of after submerging it.
This toy is very easy to care for. I just wipe mine down with an antibacterial toy cleaner, but soap and water or a toy wipe would work equally well. This does attract a bit of lint so I would recommend washing it both before and after use. I store mine in a cool, dark place with the rest of my toys.
Being made of TPE and plastic, this is compatible with all types of lubes. You don't have to worry if your favorite type of lube will react with it, so that is always convenient. Again, if you plan on sharing this between partners you should keep a condom over it because the colorful material is slightly porous.
This toy came in a black box with the front open to display the toy. It is not very discreet, but if someone sees it (without the toy in it) they may assume it was for some other product. The interior of the box is white with lots of multicolored dots. It looks very fun, but also like you're getting a quality toy.
On the back it has small circles with dots in the middle, indicating the features this toy offers and giving some basic information like how many batteries it takes (two AAAs), how to clean it, what lubes to use, how many speeds, etc. There were no paper instructions included, but the package was informative enough.
I would gladly wrap this toy and give it as a gift if I had friends that would appreciate it. There are no naked women or really even any mention of sex on the box, so it would be great for someone more modest. I wouldn't store it in this box because it is much larger than the toy, but you COULD use it for storage if you were desperate.
For some reason, some toys just work perfectly with my body (if you've spoken with me at all you've heard how I rave about my Seduction by Evolved) and this is a toy like that. For some reason, this toy hits the perfect spot for me every time. While people that need more of a curve may not like it, I find that the girth and length are perfect for me! My boyfriend also appreciates the non-phallic design and the cute pattern.
I am giving this toy a 4 out of 5 stars. The porous material is a bit of a bummer and means that this may not last as long as a nonporous toy, the fact that it is easy to change the settings when thrusting, and the fact that you have to cycle through all three patterns to turn it off are all small issues that add up to it getting one star off. I would HIGHLY recommend this toy.
