Awesome concept, but just couldnt do it.

If you know your way around your body or enjoy anal this would be a fun cheap vibrator for you, but doesn't exactly have the kick I really need.
soft, easy cleaning, good price
vibrations not strong enough, not beginner friendly for deep penetration, not discreet
Rating by reviewer:
somewhat useful review


This is definitely more for anal stimulation than for vaginal. If you do decide to use it for vaginal or anal stimulation with a lot of frequent stroking and movement make sure to lube up pretty well! This is an awesome toy for people who want a more intense stimulation and have to experience to do it safely. Since it is a safe soft plastic it is waterproof and super easy to clean! The vibrations are low and intense enough that you can hear them above a blanket but not through a door.

Material / Texture

This is a super stiff vibrator with a ball-like texture, which in most cases adds extra stimulation. I recommend it for either willing-to-be-taught beginners or advanced users who know their way around their body because for me I know the best stimulation was to make it slow and steady until I knew for sure if i was comfortable enough to go faster. I like that it also compared to other toys doesnt give off an odor which is usually a major turnoff for me.
    • No odor
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

The vibrator is about 7 inches long with a ribbed texture that divides it into 5 gradually expanding balls, there is a seam down the side but it is not noticeable or so big that you can actually feel it. I personally loved the look and feel of this design, but I do think it is not a design that is beginner friendly at all more for its bshape versus its size. Since it IS a more advanced design, it is pretty noticeable that it is a vibrator. It is travel and hidey hole friendly, but not as discrete as I'd enjoy.
    • Futuristic
    • Whimsical / artistic

Functions / Performance / Controls

Since it is waterproof, for more advanced users its a fun shower toy and underwater the vibrations are just as strong. The vibrating functions are turn activated which makes for very easy brainless use and requires no adjustments so you can properly push a button. The only time you have to put effort in is if you try to adjust it to oscillate, but standard low to high is easy. The vibrations sit at the base so you can feel it on the outside rounded edges of each ball and at the tip. The vibrations can be heard under covers but not through doors.
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

Since its plastic, the toy takes the basic soap and water and can pretty much take any sort of lube you desire(I use water based lube with it but feel free to inform me of anything better) just remember to seal it up good. I like to store in general with other toys in the bag but because of it being so rigid I prefer a toy box instead.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
Follow-up commentary
This is still very much a time and a place sort of vibrator. With a recent surgery that caused a lot of internal trauma, I can't really use it for anything that is intended of it. I'll stick with smooth ones for now, and maybe I'll get the traditional-shaped version of this instead.

    thanks for sharing your experience. what are the dimensions of all the balls? more fleshing out of the details of the vibe would be useful. a little more proofing would be helpful.
