Cupid ripples - traditional vibrator by Shaki Toys - review by freud13

Cupid did not shoot me with an arrow of love

This toy might work well for some, but it was disappointing and painful for me. Ridges are unpleasant and vibes are not powerful.

Use

This toy could be used in a variety of ways either solo or in couple play. I tried it out both ways and I'm still not a fan of this toy. It's best used for clitoral stimulation, but can be used for vaginal, g-spotting or possibly anal, but I would not recommend it for anal play unless you use condoms. I used it for clitoral, g spot, and vaginal stimulation. It was long enough to reach my g-spot, but it was painful despite using lots of lube with it. The silicone has a great feel to it, but has some drag and needs lots of lube. The toy could be used by anyone but, due to size and those ripples is best for more advanced users. It is also waterproof so it can be used in the bath or shower for some extra fun. If using it with a partner certainly use a condom as the silicone is porous. This toy would be good for someone who is looking for something different or a toy with some girth.

Material / Texture

The toy is made with TPR silicone which is a porous material so if you are using it anally it's important to use a condom. The toy has a velvet like texture that is pleasant to the touch. The toy did not really have any smell to it. The toy has a little give to it when you touch it. I had high hopes when I ordered it because the ripples looked like fun and would be something different. However, once I tried it out the ripples proved to be painful and sort of grabbed the skin when inserted even when using lube.

I'm going to continue to try it with condoms and see if that helps, but so far this is my least favorite toy. The material tends to really pick up lint and dog hair as I discovered, more so than other toys so keep it in a box or other safe area away from pet hair.

Design / Shape / Size

The size of the toy is a good size for vaginal insertion, but the ridges are not pleasant and at times were painful. The shape is fun with the bulbous design, but the ridges makes this toy a dud. The tip of it is not much smaller than the base so you do not get much variety in size with this toy. The size is good for pretty much anyone, unless someone is trying to use it anally. Due to the porous material it should only be used anally with a condom or if you are using it with partners use a condom.

The size is rather large for anal use so I would only recommend it to experienced anal users. It also does not have a flared base so proceed with caution if using it anally. This toy is not easy to hide due to it's larger size. If traveling I would make sure to take the batteries out as it is easy to hit the button to start the vibrations. The toy is 1.5" in diameter and 7.8" long. The ridges make it feel larger than it actually is, so it's good for someone who is seeking a larger toy.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This toy has eight speeds: weak level vibration, middle level vibration, strong level vibration, (weak, middle, strong level) vibration which is a pulsing vibration, (weak, strong level) vibration which pulses, (middle, strong level) vibration that pulses, strongest vibration, multi-speed vibration. The first three speeds and the seventh speed are good, but the pulse and multi-speeds are not pleasant for me. Even the strongest vibration was not that strong. However, the controls are easy to use especially if you have a partner assisting you.

The toy makes a buzzing sound but could not be heard through a closed door or over the shower. You can hear it through a cover or if you are in the same room. The toy is waterproof and performed well in the shower. The vibrations are in the shaft and not the bulbous tip of the toy which could improve the vibrations of the toy. This toy alone did not get me off because it's harder to get strong stimulation due to the vibrations being in the shaft. You have to go through all 8 speeds to turn the toy off. You control the speeds by pushing a button on the end of the toy. This is not a toy for those who like strong vibrations. I recommend it for those who like pulsing and weaker vibrations. I do not feel like most women would be able to get off with this toy.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

The toy is easy to take care of and clean. It can be cleaned with toy cleaner or soap and water. This toy cannot be boiled or ran through the dishwasher. It should not be used with water based lubes since it is made of silicone, only silicone lubes. I store it in a box with my other toys. This toy can easily pick up lint or dog hair so it is important to store it as soon as it's cleaned to to clean it between each use.
    • Easy to clean

Packaging



The toy was packaged in a cardboard box with a plastic form that is molded to the toy. It could work as a storage box, but it would be awkward putting it back into the packaging each time. It would however be easy to wrap for a present. User instructions were printed on the box with a listing of speed settings. The packaging stated that it needed 2 AAA batteries, but in fact the toy requires 2 AA batteries. The packaging is all recyclable which is nice for the environment.

Experience

I wanted to like this toy, but I was disappointed with it. I used it solo and then had a partner use it on me. I found it disappointing how unpleasant the ridges were on the toy even when lube was used quite liberally. I am going to try again with it using condoms to see if that helps with ridges, but right now this toy gets a low rating from me.
Follow-up commentary
I wanted to like this toy. I gave it a few more attempts and just ended up hating it even more. Maybe other people will like this toy, but I am not a fan. No matter how much lube I put on it before insertion, the ripples grab at my skin and do not feel very pleasant when the toy is inside me. The shape of the toy is great, but the texture is less than desirable.

    great review however in care and maintanence you state it shoul not be used with water based lube and only silicone. This is the wrong way, a silicone toy should NOT be used with silicone based lube and only be used with water based lubes.
