extremely useful review


Playmate is a vibrating dildo meant for vaginal or anal use. It is wireless and comes with a remote that cycles through the vibrations so that you can enjoy each and every one of them with the click of a button. The Playmate is waterproof and can be taken into the shower or tub with you to enjoy for however long you'd like. The strong vibrations the toy gives off can also be used as stimulation in other areas, such as the nipples, clitoris, or other erogenous zones on a female or male. The toy can also be used for partner play, and the suction cup base is more than capable of standing up in a harness for pegging.

While the girth may be too much for beginners, more advanced users will find themselves using the suction cup base to ride this toy wherever they'd like, whenever they'd like. Since the toy has a scrotum, this toy can also be used anally and safely without worry of 'losing' the toy. The toy can be traveled with, but be sure to pack it well enough so it won't be discovered, or if you're not easily embarrassed should TSA find the toy in your bags.

Material / Texture

The main compositions of this toy are flesh-colored silicone and ABS plastic. Silicone and ABS plastic are both non-porous, hypoallergenic, latex, and phthalate free. Silicone rates a perfect ten on the Eden Safety Scale, whilst ABS plastic rates an eight out of ten. There is a light scent to the toy, but it will quickly go away after the toy is cleaned for the first time. This scent can only be smelled if the toy is placed directly under the nose, and is a new plastic smell that most plastic vibrators come with. The vibrator has no taste to it, and it is velvety to the touch.

The Playmate is rigid with the ABS plastic beneath the silicone exterior, and so it is completely firm and has no pliability except at the very tip of the head and in the attached balls. This firmness makes the veined texture on the realistic design stand out, and can be felt during use. This veining runs the whole length of the shaft, and encompasses the front and back of the shaft. There is also a seam on this toy that runs along its center around the entire vibrator, but this seam cannot be felt during the use of the toy.

The texture, combined with the rigidity of this toy, is best suited for people who have had experience with firmer toys, and is not a great choice for beginners or those who do not like a lot of texture or rigidity.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

The Playmate is realistically designed, complete with a urethral opening, glans, frenulum, foreskin, scrotum and scattered veining. The size of the Playmate may be intimidating for beginners, but intermediate to more advanced users who enjoy firmness and girth may find this toy to be the perfect playmate for playtime. Due to the realism of the toy, it is best kept out of sight, as it can be spotted easily for what it is. Traveling with the Playmate can be done, but be sure to pack it out of sight if you're easily embarrassed, and make sure to keep track of the small remote if you decide to take it with you as well.

The bottom of the toy is a suction cup that unscrews from the base to reveal the battery compartment. The remote that comes with the toy is an egg-shaped, semi-flat remote that is similar to that of a remote for a car, or a garage door opener and about the same size as one. On the back of the remote, there's a battery compartment that slides open. The toy has no curve and is completely straight, but the coronal ridge of the toy could provide g-spot stimulation.

Measurements of the toy:
Overall Length: 7-1/2" (including suction cup base)
Insertable Length: 5-1/2"
Circumference: 5"
Diameter: 1-5/8"
Suction Cup: 3-1/4" wide by 3-1/4" long

Measurements of the remote:
Length: 3"
Width: 1-1/2"

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Playmate is a 10 function vibrator operated by a wireless remote. The vibrator can also be operated by the power button on the toy itself, to cycle through each setting the vibrator has to offer. Once the toy has batteries in the vibrator portion, there is an LED light that blinks on and off above the power button. This light indicates that it is waiting for the wireless remote to turn the toy on or shut it off. It's function is so that the user knows the toy is 'searching' for the remote.

Clicking the button on the remote turns the toy onto the first setting, and each click cycles the toy through them. The remote has a light that illuminates with each click. Holding the button in on the remote for a few seconds turns the toy off. The power button on the toy itself does the same thing. With each click, the toy can be cycled through its 10 settings, and to turn off the vibrator, simply hold in the power button for a few seconds. Removal of the batteries after each use is required, as the light on the vibrator itself that 'searches' for the remote never stops or goes off.

The Playmate's suction cup holds up well, and really clings to a smooth surface when the toy is placed on one. A little bit of water on the suction cup makes the toy cling to the surface even more. Unfortunately, when the toy is rocked back and forth, the base feels strained, and feels like the threads on the screw on portion of the base will break if too much pressure is exerted onto it. Make sure not to strip the threads of the suction cup, which unscrews from the bottom of the toy itself, as they're made of plastic and can do so easily. This suction cup also doubles as a means to use this toy in a harness, which you can unscrew it and fit it into an o-ring between the base and the toy.

The 10 functions of this vibrator are:

1. High constant vibration - Strong vibrations that are around a 4 vroom
2. Medium constant vibration - Medium vibrations that are around a 3 to 3-1/2 vroom
3. Low constant vibration - Low vibrations that are around a 2 vroom
4. Gradient burst - Low to high pulse that starts at a 3 and pulses up to a 4 vroom
5. Intermittent - Medium pulse that feels like a helicopter blade movement and is a 3 vroom throughout each pulse
6. Surge - High burst of pulsation that feels like a 3 going up to a 4 vroom
7. Inta-surge - High to low pulsations that start at a 4 and go down to 3 vroom back to 4
8. Even step - High to medium pulsations that start at a 4, go down to 3 and back up in a pattern with no in-between
9. Roller-coaster spurt - High pulse that starts at a 4 and falls to a 2 back up to a 4 like a roller-coaster ride
10. Pulsate - The pulses are around a 3 vroom and are exactly as they sound like

This vibrator isn't noisy, but it can be heard through a door as a soft humming sound similar to that of an electric razor. It does not have a memory function on the toy, so it will always reset once the toy is turned off, and the user will have to cycle through the settings again. The toy is easier to cycle through settings with the remote, but it can be done without the remote if you don't have any battery power left for it. The vibrator itself takes two AA batteries, while the remote takes one A23 battery. Two batteries are included for the remote in the packaging.

The vibrators vibrations are located throughout the toy as it's all one plastic vibrator under a realistic silicone exterior. It is waterproof due to the o-ring on the screw-on suction cup and can be taken into the bath or shower with the user, but the remote is not.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Strong patterns

Care and Maintenance

Taking care of the Playmate is easy to do. Because it has mechanical parts, you will not be able to boil the toy, but due to the material, it can be fully sterilized. To clean the toy, you can wash it in warm soapy water, use a toy wipe or toy cleaner, or bleach it with 90% water, 10% bleach. If users are worried about the use of the Playmate with multiple partners, place a condom over it between washes. Make sure that you clean the toy thoroughly, and get into smaller areas with a soft-bristled brush.

Placing the toy in water will not harm the toy due to its waterproof ability. Fluids may get trapped in the indentation of the power button or between the suction cup and the toy itself. If this happens, unscrew the base and clean around the area with your soft-bristled brush or a cloth, but be sure to keep water from out of the battery compartment itself. Once you're finished cleaning the toy, set it out to air dry, or wipe it down with a clean towel or bath cloth. If fluids or lubricants get onto the remote, be sure to wipe it down thoroughly as well, but make sure not to soak the remote.

Always remove the batteries from the remote and the toy after use. The LED light for the toy is always on, so the batteries will run down if left in. Batteries can also corrode if left in the toy or remote too long, and can make the toy unusable. Use only water-based lubricants with the toy, and if storing the toy out of the packaging it came in, storing it with other silicone toys is fine, but refrain from storing the vibrator with toys made of Jelly, PVC or other lower grade materials. Store the toy in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.

The Playmate vibrator was shipped in a discreet, plain cardboard box marked "Web Merchants Inc." and has no indicators as to what is inside of your package. The toy itself comes packaged inside of a sturdy cardboard box with a window that has the toy in full view via a plastic window on the front of the box. It can be used for storage of the toy or be recycled, and it can easily be wrapped if you're gifting the toy to someone.

On the box there was a lot of information, and included an extra instruction manual on the inside of the box that tells how to insert the batteries.

Personal comments

I gave this item four out of five stars because it was not flexible, and I had to worry about being too rough with it when it was suctioned to the floor or tub. I didn't want to strip the threads of the screw-on suction cup during use of trying to rock back and forth, because the toy simply wasn't made to move that way. However, bouncing on the toy was perfectly fine, and created wonderful stimulation. Some users will not like the rigidity of this toy, but for those who don't mind the plastic vibrators, this one is a great, realistic version of an old classic.
Follow-up commentary
We don't use this toy much anymore. It's not that we don't like it, but we have better toys for the job. This is a wonderful cordless vibrator made from an excellent material. It's just a little too stiff for our enjoyment, and it has made its way to the bottom of our toy box.
