Play allure - traditional vibrator by Durex - review by jackandmickey1323

Underwhelming starter vibe

Overall, not worth the money or the headache. Save yourself the frustration. If you are new to purchasing sex toys and vibrators, or even if you are seasoned, you can definitely find a much better toy.
Loud, underwhelming power, eats batteries, broke after a few uses...

Mickey--While the experience with this toy was not all bad, the quality of this toy was NOT comparable to any other I have used. The vibrations of this toy are not very strong, in fact the first time I used it I couldn't even feel them. The toy was actually quite taxing mentally and required me to concentrate on the vibrations, in order to feel their benefits. I did orgasm the first time using it, but the orgasm wasn't worth the amount of work! After the first time, Jack and I decided to use it in the shower--hoping to add some sensory explosion and possibly help me gain more pleasure from this toy; however, I used another vibrator on the outside because I just couldn't climax. The main reason this toy is not effective is because there is absolutely no texture. The shaft of this toy is smooth, hard plastic.

The toy has no scent or taste, and is pretty loud, actually quite distracting. It's not very discreet at all! Another big disappointment is the way you turn this toy on/up...the bottom portion of the shaft, under the purple band, turns. Sounds easy, right? Wrong...if you have any lubrication, lotion, or water on your hands, it is impossible to turn. Overall, this toy will aid in bringing pleasure and reaching an orgasm, so I guess it does it's job, but if you don't like having to concentrate on low vibrations and struggle to adjust your settings while trying to keep "a mood," then I would not recommend this toy, even for a beginner.

Jack--while I did not use this toy personally on myself, I can attest to all of Mickey's frustrations. This was one of our first toy purchases and was nothing short of disappointing. It was very difficult to turn on/off and changing the speed was almost impossible once your hands are even a little wet. It was incredibly loud for the power it displayed. I could tell that Mickey had to work hard with this one and if she's not happy neither am I. This toy also went through batteries at a ridiculous rate. It only takes AA battery, but every time we went to use it we needed a new one!

The worst part or best part, based upon your perspective, was that it stopped working entirely after a couple of months. Overall this was a not a good purchase and in hindsight we would not do it again. We should however thank the makers of this vibe because it got us looking for bigger and better toys to play with and we found I guess it wasn't all bad.
