The Straight Up Vibe is constructed out of 100% silicone which is manufactured in Europe. Silicone is naturally hypoallergenic, latex free, phthalates free, and nonporous. In other words, silicone is one of the safest materials used in the sex toy industry.
The Straight Up is extremely soft, squishy, and bendable. The head is studded with two bands of raised nubs. The first band is about 2/3 of an inch down and boasts eight nubs. The second is two inches down and boasts eight nubs as well. Six ridges cover the entire shaft, beginning at the head. Four of the ridges are very slight but the two in the middle are raised, increasing the normal circumference of the toy to five and a half inches. All ridges and nubs are very soft and pliable.
The vibe has a slight, tangy odor without any taste what so ever. Therefor, sucking on it is not unpleasant.
The Straight Up is intended for all around vaginal stimulation. Aspects such as G spot stimulation are not mentioned by the company and are purely a plus. Women who have very shallow G spots may be able to gain intense stimulation from the raised nubs and ridges of the toy. Women who have harder to reach G spots may gain some stimulation or none at all. In this case, each woman will experience something different. All women will experience deep vaginal stimulation and vibration from the Straight Up.
The vibe is eight inches long with five inches of insertable length. The circumference ranges from four and a half inches at the head of the vibe to five and a half inches at the base.
The Straight Up is a matted light purple which is obvious and an eye catcher. Because the vibe is covered in ribs and nubs it is not at all discreet. However, the toy is extremely sturdy and well suited for travel by air, sea, or road.
The vibe has a multi-speed function with three settings, low, medium, and high. The low setting provides strong vibrations which are centered only at the tip of the toy. Medium increases the range of felt vibration from the tip to the bottom of the shaft. The last setting, high, provides intense stimulation with vibes that carry evenly throughout the entire toy. The Straight Up has excellent, even, vibe flow. Users are able to choose whether or not they want the vibe to only vibrate at the tip or throughout the entire shaft.
The controls consist of an easy to hold, upside, turn dial. Turn the dial towards the vibe to turn it on and increase speed. Turn the dial away from the vibe to decrease speed or turn it off. Above the dial is a handle which makes thrusting the toy very easy. Women with arthritis should find the grip and handle of the toy more comfortable than most.
The vibe is noisy and sounds like a small appliance when set on high. The sound fades when inserted.
The vibe is waterproof and can be used in the shower, tub, pool, or jacuzzi.
Because the Straight Up is silicone it cannot be stored with other silicone toys. Store it in the provided plastic case to keep it safe and protect it from breaking down. All lubes used with this toy should be water based. Oil and silicone based lubes cannot be used. Finally, the toy can be cleaned with soap and hot water or putting it in the top rack of the dishwasher. To wash remove the two double A batteries and reseal the cap tightly. Place in the dishwasher and run through the wash cycle. Remove and store. The toy does not collect dust and is an inhospitable environment for bacteria.
The vibe comes complete with a clear, plastic, storage box. The name of the toy adorns the front along with painted purple ribbons and flowers. Two metal clasps keep the lid closed and secure. An included, fitted, plastic insert keeps the toy secure and prevents it from sliding in the container. Finally, the storage box is suitable for gifting.
The Straight Up provided me with intense vaginal and G spot stimulation. I didn't really expect G spot stimulation, but for some women it is possible with this toy. I found the ridges and nubs to be very supple and comfortable. A little water based lube and I was on my way. Once inserted I turned on the vibe and was filled with strong vibrations from tip to the end of the shaft. Used on the clit, I found the head of the vibe to fit nicely against my hood. The nubs and ribs also provided a nice texture.
