Better Than Real Velvet

This vibe replaced all my other vibes. I've even bought vibes after it, but so far nothing compares to the texture and vroom I get from this one.
soft texture, strong vibrations, waterproof

useful review


There are multiple uses for this wonderful toy. For me, it works best as an external vibe, because that's how I get the most powerful orgasms. However, it is insertable and does feel amazing.

To be safe, I would not use this toy anally, since there is no base to keep it from slipping completely inside. It would be fine to use outside of that area though. People with a clitoris/vagina will probably get the most use out of this toy.

Since the toy is waterproof, you can use it in the shower or bath.

This is my go to toy for solo play, though it can be used on you by a partner or with a partner.

Material / Texture

When I first touched it, I was surprised! I know it was suppose to be soft, but it's so much more than I thought it would be. It almost feels like it's lightly lubricated with a soft lotion, yet it's completely dry. This makes a wonderful sensation anywhere you place it.

I've never owned or even seen a toy that feels quite like this, and I believe that everyone from beginners to veterans can and will enjoy the texture.

It is very rigid. There is no give at all. For me, this makes it perfect to use externally. If used internally, and especially in the hands of a partner, keep in mind that it does not give.

There was no smell that I could detect.
    • No odor
    • Rigid
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

My only slight complaint is that I like my insertable toys wider. However, since I rarely use it that way, this is not a problem. The length of it is perfect for holding the vibrations exactly where I need them without straining my arm.

A more advanced user might be disappointed in the size. While it is hefty, it's not the biggest toy you could get.

You can easily tuck this toy into a dresser drawer or toy chest. I would recommend placing it into some kind of sock like protective sleeve, since the likelihood of knicks are high, given the soft texture (more about this in Care and Maintenance).

While quite plain looking, it's very obvious that it is a toy. You *might* be able to pass it off as a massager, because of the softness, but that's if you're cool with random people touching your toys. I know I'm not.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This toy features a dial control. Unless you have strong fingers (I know I don't) you'll need at least one hand completely free to use it. After that, the more you twist it on, the higher the vibrations. I prefer this type of control. It seems like you have more control over exactly how much vibration you experience, versus the preset button vibes.

When on the highest setting, most of the vibrations are located in the first 1/3 of the toy, radiating from the tip. After that, it drops off, but can still be felt all the way to the controls.

On full speed, behind a closed door with music or a TV on, it cannot be heard.

It is waterproof, but I have not really experiment with it in water. I have used simple soap and warm water to clean it before and after every use, and it's been completely fine.

The best thing about this toy is the power. On the highest setting, it's not too much or too little.
There are no bad things about this toy, just minor things that could be improved.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Strong patterns

Care and Maintenance

I would suggest keeping this toy against soft material and not letting it bang around much. I don't have mine in a sleeve, and it's gathered a few dinges over the past year. Nothing major, and nothing that makes the toy unusable, but it is a possibility.

According to the guide on EdenFantasys, this material is safe to use with water and silicone based lubes. Personally, I've used silicone based lubes with it and it has been completely fine.

To clean, I wash with simple soap and warm water and let it air dry.
    • Easy to clean
    • Somewhat fragile material


Alone, this toy is great. Having a partner use this on you is a little tricky, since it is very rigid and can hurt if used at the wrong angle too roughly.

Most of my experience with this toy and a partner comes from using it clitorally while my partner enters me. It gives great vibrations, but can become difficult to place because of it's size.
