The All on red vibe is made of body-safe silicone and has a black plastic base where the control dial is. It is a bit rubbery to the touch, but not sticky or tacky. There is only a very slight plastic smell to it, if it brought up to the nose, but there was no distinct smell right out of the box. There doesn't seem to be any taste at all to it. Even with the intricate twists and wraps on this toy, it's rather smooth to touch.
The All on Red has some very interesting texture to it. There appear to be wrappings of silicone around the toy, making for a variety in width and ridges to go over. The contours of this toy definitely add something different in it's use. The widest point is filling, but not huge, and the nice strong vibes are sure to please any user. If traveling with this toy, remember to remove the batteries, as there is no off-locking feature for the vibrator; rubbing or sliding against something could turn it on.
The plastic black base twists off to allow the two required AA batteries to be inserted, and you can see a thick red rubber border that keeps water out of the battery area. I'm not sure how the vibrations work under the silicone exterior, but they vibrate strongly throughout the toy. With some vibes you can tell that there is a vibrating bullet in the toy, and it mostly vibrates in that one area, but not with big red here. The toy is surprisingly quiet. At the very highest level, it sounds like a cell phone vibrating on a table, but the many levels from weakest to the top are all quiet enough to use in a house with thin walls. There is however, only two simple settings - on or off. There are no intricate vibration patterns, just a steady, constant vibration.
To clean this toy, the best option would be warm soap and water or a toy cleaner. Because it uses batteries, I wouldn't recommend putting it in a dishwasher. For storage, the box it comes in is really neat if you can just leave your toy hanging out there. Personally, I like keeping my toys wrapped in a soft cloth or pouch. Because it is silicone, it will attract dust and hair, so keep that in mind when storing.
One of the coolest things I like about this toy is the box it comes in. While not the most discreet (due to it having Evolved Novelties and instructions and such on the front and sides of the box) the plastic case snaps shut from the top and bottom and it awesome for keeping other sex stuff in. The box is a good hard plastic with a lid, and worth keeping. The cool packaging would make it a nice gift.
