It made me joyful!I didn't expect much out of this vibe but I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and performance of it. This is a very nice well made toy and I can't see much wrong with it. It does attract dirt and hair but they give you a nice silver, silky bag to store your toy in to prevent this. I am not a big fan of the turn dials but it turns well, not to tight or too loose. No issues with trying to figure out how to work it, just turn the dial and you're good to go.
strong vibrations, silicone, nice rippled texture
The slightly curved tip off the Chris-Cross make G-spot stimulation easier and the point of the head is good for clitoral stimulation. This vibrator would be good for anyone who likes a bigger toy. Chris-Cross is a little thick around the middle. You can use him alone or let your partner join in on the fun.
It is made of 100% silicone that is food-grade, hypo-allergenic, latex free, non-porous, Phthalates and odor free. The silicone is firm but has a nice amount of flex to and while it feels smooth there is a lot of drag to it so don't forget your lube when playing with him. The two textures (smooth and rippled) run around the vibrator in two strips from the head to the base, kind of like a candy canes stripes run around it. The ripples are very pronounced and if you aren't into a lot of texture they may be too much for you.
Chris-Cross is 8 1/2" in length, 7" insertable, 5 1/2" in circumference, and 1 1/2" in diameter. You could easily hide this toy in the back of a drawer or in the bottom of your suitcase if you wanted to take it along with you on the go. The shaft may be too thick for some, maybe not a great toy for a beginner for that reason. The head of the vibe curves just a little and made reaching the G-spot easier. The black cap at the base twists off so you can put your batteries in and there is a rubber o ring to keep water out of the battery compartment. The dial at the bottom of the cap stands out because it is silver instead of black like the rest of the cap.
The vibrations are controlled by one big dial on the end of the battery cap at the base of the vibe. To get started you will have to twist the battery cap off and insert two AA batteries (not included). Turn to the right to turn it on and the farther right you turn it the more intense the vibrations will be. Turn the dial back to the left to lessen the vibration strength and turn it completely off. You can only adjust the vibration strength; you don't get any patterns or much variety with this vibe. The vibrations come from 2 motors in the shaft of the vibrator that extend from the base and stop about 2 1/2' away from the tip of the head. Even when you grip the head of it firmly you can still feel the vibrations travel through it well. I gave it 4 vrooms because while it is pretty strong, the vibrations aren't earth. If held in the hand for a few minutes your hand will start to feel tingly. The dial is easy to turn, not to tight or loose. You don't have to worry about hitting any buttons and turning it off while you're using it. Anybody in the room with you is going to be able to hear some low noise even under the covers but you can't hear it through a door. Chris-Cross is advertised as water resistant. I had no issues with damaging him while cleaning him off but because of the turn dial I personally am a little leery of submerging the vibe completely. There is a rubber O ring inside the battery cap to keep water out.
Clean with warm water and soap or your preferred toy cleaner. Joy Division recommends clean'n'safe. Only use a water-based lube, using silicone based lubricants will damage and degrade the silicone. They include a sample of their AQUAglide with the toy also. The vibe comes with its own storage bag which is awesome, because this thing is a lint magnet.
