Let's Learn About the Basics---All Night Long.

The versatility of All Night Long makes this classic a perfect choice for exploring how your body responds to vaginal and clitoral vibrations. All Night Long ranges from not-so-low to pretty-darn-high, deeply enough not to numb a new user. A non-porous material and an approachable price recommend All Night Long to the burgeoning scholar. All Night Long only takes demerits for noise, and for the smell inside the battery compartment. If you've got thick walls, this is an ideally versatile vibe.

Perfect texture and girth for a first vibe, easy controls, comes in green.

Smells bad (to me, I'm pickier than most), bright neon pink, on the loud side.

USE
When my high school best friend asked me to buy her a vibrator during my first month at college, I wish I'd have found the Shane's World Sorority Party Vibe "All Night Long" hanging on the sex shop wall. This would have been the perfect first vibrator for her. It's inexpensive so she could test her preferences without sinking a lot of cash. At 1" diameter, it's the perfect unintimidating girth for a virgin (or anyone who prefers small-to-medium girthed insertables). The vibrations range from pretty soft to pretty strong, and the controls don't require an engineering degree. The texture feels nice and smooth, it accepts a convenient battery size, and it comes in bright, fun colors. It can be used fully inserted or clitorally, so someone who's experimenting with her body has lots of options---lack of a base means it's no good for anal, but you can use it for any other area under the sun.

Unfortunately, the store I breathlessly stepped into didn't have this simple, appealing-because-of-its-basicness vibe in stock, so I left the first brick and mortar sex shop of my life with a chintsy plastic vibe not large enough to be insertable but too big for clitoral use for my friend, and a disastrous jelly double penetrator for myself. We would both have been much better off exploring our bodies with these All Night Long vibes.

Construction
All Night Long is made of hard plastic with a velvety, polyurethane coating. Inside the hot pink shell, there is a thick plastic lining that keeps the two AA batteries from shaking loudly against the outer plastic shell, and also lends a nice weight to the vibe. This does not feel chintzy, despite the first impression you might get from the packaging and colors. The batteries are held in by a cap made of the same hot pink plastic as the shell, but without the polyurethane coating. The threads on the cap are shallow but strong. There is a silver plastic ring over which you can see the dial indicator that controls the strength of vibration, which moves easily around the base. If you think of it as a clock, you have vibration levels from 9 til 1:30---not quite All Night Long, but surely long enough. The vibe strength really does vary a lot, making this an excellent vibrator for someone who doesn't know exactly what she wants yet. The vibrations are not as rumbly as a luxury vibe, but Cal Exotics chooses very good motors for their price range, and these vibrations are not so buzzy that they'll make you go numb. They should feel pleasant for most people.

Sadly, the inside portion of All Night Long has a pretty strong smell, for hard plastic. I have a much more sensitive nose than most people, so many of you might not notice, and surely most of you will have no trouble at all letting the vibe air out and forgetting that it ever smelled at all. The scent is nowhere near as strong as jelly, but it's definitely the stinkiest hard plastic I've ever encountered---it's not the shower curtain (phthalates) smell, and I'd say it's more similar to when you buy a new cooler or Thermos. (Hard plastic is phthalates free.) The polyurethane coating doesn't smell, but as soon as I open the battery cap, the white plastic inside makes my eyes sting. I actually put the vibe back in its box and didn't test it out until I had some condoms to use with it, just to be sure.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Shane's World All Night Long comes in a slim plastic clamshell, which you could use for storage if you were so inclined (it keeps the smell from permeating the rest of your bedroom!). Care of the All Night Long is fairly common sense---hard plastic is a sturdy material, so you can store it anywhere with no problems, as long as you wash it before use. Washing after use is a breeze because the vibe is waterproof, so use an antibacterial soap and you'll be good to go. If you intend to let your BFF give this Sorority Vibe a try, have her use a condom over it because plastic can't be sterilized. The polyurethane coating is pretty durable, so even if this is stored in a drawer with your other school supplies, your vibe will stay in good shape.

PERFORMANCE
When you first twist All Night Long on, you'll know immediately by the sound. This won't be a good choice of vibrator for those who share a dorm room. It shouldn't be heard through walls, and it quiets down considerably when it's inserted, but you might want to wait til there's some music on if you want to use this as a clit vibe.
Experience
The polyurethane finish makes the texture of this vibe quite nice---it feels great with the addition of just your natural lube, so you won't need to buy a bottle. (Should you not mind keeping lube tubes around, this hard plastic vibe works with anything except oil-based slickeners.) My favorite way to use it was to insert it and gently thrust for a while, and then slip it out and rub my clit for a bit before inserting it again. By varying the power using the dial, you can use All Night Long to get off fairly quickly, or to string out your experience for a longer "study session" (at least, that's what the packaging calls it).

The variation and strength of the vibrations is ideal for a beginners' vibe. All Night Long did not numb me, which vibrations that are too buzzy can do. At the high speeds, while this is not a wand-style vibrator, it packs a very good punch, and the majority of women should be able to reach clitoral orgasm with it, if not internal. (For me, both were possible). Even at the low speed, this was stronger than my Doc Johnson glass vibe on high. The motor is located an inch from the tip of All Night Long, and the hard plastic outside and inside mean that the vibrations carry very well throughout the vibe's length. The twist cap didn't seem to carry the vibrations as much, which is lucky because I had to hold this vibe in whenever it was inserted to keep it from being pushed out by my kegels.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Shane's World Sorority Party All Night Long would make a great choice for a first vibrator---its low cost, simplicity, versatility, and ease of use mean it's hard to go wrong when you're brushing up on your masturbation techniques. (You can even get a matching set for all your friends---check out the Nooner, which is just a bit shorter than All Night Long.) All the same, with just a little research, you should be able to find a vibe that's a higher quality, or at least one whose scent won't strip paint off your dorm room walls. If your budget is fixed, though, you could do far worse---you could be like me and try a jelly double penetrator! (College tip: If you're solving a multivariate calculus problem on a test, and the person next to you only wrote down giant purple jelly double penetrator!, you don't want to copy that answer.) I really wish I would have found All Night Long during my first visit to a sex shop. The smell would have put me off, and it might be a little loud for folks in dorms, but this would have been the perfect first vibe for my best friend. Maybe it will be for you, too.

And one final note: I have no idea what Shane's World is. I didn't even research it before writing this report.

    Giant purple jelly double penetrator!

    I mean... ah... great review!

    I enjoy your writing style and how it's peppered with little insights.
  • Antipova
    Vibrator super-powers! I won't really be reaching for mine very often either because my collection's got a lot of variety. But it does everything it promises, and it would be really great for somebody's first.

    Thanks, Silvi! I really appreciate that. And, ah, yeah, I might have put a few carts before horses in my time.
