It is made of a smooth, hard plastic with no smell and no taste. There is absolutely no give when trying to bend it. If you try too hard, it will break.
From the very bottom to the very top of the toy is 6 inches. There are 5 "rings" on the top of the toy. The top ring is half an inch in diameter, 4 bigger rings are 3/4 of an inch in diameter. The base is just over half an inch in diameter. It's comparable to the width of a think pointer finger. From the bottom of toy to where the rings start is 4 inches, and the rings make up the last 2 inches. The entire thing can fit into the palm of my hand. It's definitely good for beginners. It seems like it would be simple to hide. You could probably carry it in your purse without anyone really questioning it too much. It almost looks like a weird pen. Here's a picture
I really like the turn dial controls for this vibrator because it made it easy to change the amount of vibrations that I wanted. The vibrations are located at the very top of the toy, so it's easy to put them exactly where you want them. I just wish this toy were waterproof. It seemed at first like it had a lot of power, but once I used it, it was sort of disappointing. When I turned it on and held it in my hand I was excited to try it because it seemed so intense. It's hard to explain what it felt like when I started using it. It was strong, but it was almost like the vibrations were too concentrated.
Cleaning this toy is very simple because it is made of plastic. It can be cleaned with antibacterial soap and warm water, or wiped down with isopropyl alcohol. The thing I like best about toys made of plastic is that you can use any type of lube with them. I have a shoe box that I store all of my toys in, but you could potentially use the packaging it came in if you wanted. Just taking out the insert that says what it is would make it discreet enough that you wouldn't really know at first glance what it is.
The packaging is pretty plain. The toy came in a plastic pull apart package that has a spot that was formed to fit the toy. It can be closed by simply pushing it back together. There is a piece of paper inserted in between the plastic to make a "background" for the toy. On the paper, there is a picture of a woman wearing a dress and staring lustfully at the camera. It says "Slender Sensations" in pink font at the top and "ultra-thin Multi-Speed Massager" in white font just beside the massager. On the back of the package is standard information about the company, like the copyrights and such.
