Play allure - traditional vibrator by Durex - review by lady grey

Not what I hoped for

This little vibe is just powerful enough to try. Great for first timers and has a great design. Not much girth or too much power though.
Discreet, great for beginners, gets the job done.
Small size, medium vibrations, plastic is hard and rough at times. Not waterproof.

somewhat useful review
The Durex allure vibrator is a toy that's good for beginners, but may not have the power that others might crave. It's small and streamlined for easy entrance and gives just enough power on the max setting to get you there. The design is simple with your average turn mechanism for off and on.

Unfortunately in the two years I've owned this product, I've always had issues with the controls. Many turn control vibes are more independent of place you turn to change the batteries. If you aren't careful you can be unaware that your vibe is still on and drain the batteries while it's in your sock drawer. I've taken to unscrewing the cap completely just to make sure. The longevity as a toy is admirable, but keep in mind that as with all toys it can and will break down over time with regular use. It's at its best with a brand new AA battery and another toy to accompany it.

If I compare it to other simple vibes, I find that their controls often have a bit more ease to it. Ideally I'd like to not have to worry about my battery dying if I wasn't completely perfect in putting it away the night before. I will say though, that for the battery power it has a pretty decent motor. This being said, I wish it were quieter. I often worried about others hearing me in the next room while I was taking care of business. It's made of hard plastic, so if you aren't careful you may find yourself sore if you thrust it in hard or put it in at an odd angle. The plastic is rough and at times difficult to clean. It's not waterproof so shower fun is completely off the table. I would not suggest it to serious toy lovers. Only beginners will feel as though it's satisfactory. If I had to do it over, I'd get something stronger.
Follow-up commentary
I've moved on to bigger and better toys. The Durex Play Allure has been condemned to the back of my sock drawer, and I find I barely miss it. I prefer my toys to be reliable and powerful. Unfortunately, this toy didn't fit the bill.

    Congrats on having your first review published ^.^ It would be a good idea in future reviews to include a quick blurb about how to clean the toy. I now have "Business Time" in my head since you mentioned taking care of business in your review : P

    Great first review! Also, check out the Mentor Program sometime if you haven't already. It's a great resource for helping with writing your reviews, it did a lot to help me out when I first started

    Good review. I guess I'm picky, I think all toys over $20 should be waterproof.
