Adorable Innovation

The Zini Duex is a fascinating toy designed to take foreplay to new levels, and it most certainly will! Despite the few minor flaws of the toy(s), the Duex is thoughtfully created, high quality, and a lot of fun! It provides a great change of pace for couples in the bedroom (and can aid in getting your man to lengthen your foreplay, or be more effective at it!) It can also be used for solo play. The Deux really has endless possibilities with high quality design making it an incredibly solid toy
+ Rechargable
+ Two Vibes
+ Great for couples
+ Thoughtful Design
- not waterproof, so no showers!
- one charger for two pieces
- some will want more power
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


Zini out-did themselves with style and design of the Zini Deux. In fact, they won awards for the innovation in this unique couples style vibrator! The Deux (meaning "both") is actually two separate vibes. Each has it's own control panel, it's own charging port, and it's own unique shape. The female portion of the toy is designed to stimulate her, with the highest amount of power at the clitoral bump, but the vibrations carry down to the base of the toy which is designed to give stimulation to the labia. His portion of the vibe is designed kind of like a shallow cup, perfect for giving a little bit of tingly pleasure to the testicles or shaft!

However, you have the chance to be inspired by the innovation of the Duex and am make some inventions of your own! Don't have a man in your life? No problem! Use the His portion to cup your body! Stimulate your breast, or anywhere else you can thing of an enjoy double the fun!

The Duex is designed as a foreplay toy. Meaning, it's not suppose to give you a quick get off session. It has only 3 vrooms, which for the average user will be enough power to eventually get them off, but it will take a tease session. In my opinion, the Duex is a good way to con a man into giving you more effective foreplay ;) The vibrations will spice up any make out session, and the his and hers portions of the toy can make for very romantic pre-play.

With all the ways you can use these two vibes, I can honestly recommend them to anyone and everyone (except for total power queens who will just be disappointed!). Unfortunately, they aren't waterproof, but they are thoughtfully designed and sure to provide many a much more intense foreplay, during play, or post-play experience.

Material / Texture

The Duex is made completely of PU coated plastic. For those of you accustom to silicone, it might take a little bit of getting use to the rigidness of the toys. But, there isn't anything wrong with PU coated plastic. It's still a 7 on the Eden Saftey scale, and it's body safe. Features include that it is made with Food-grade material, it's Hypo-allergenic, latex free, Non-porous and Phthalates free.

Both pieces of the Duex are a smooth texture with a velvety finish. There is no smell or taste to the material and all levels of users will be able to enjoy this toy!
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

This is the category where Duex is an award winning toy. Let's divide the two parts and go over what Zini has suggested as their uses!

His Piece (the concave side): Zini ergonomically designed this portion of the vibe to stimulate erogenous zones on both him and her, making it convenient for a woman to use with (or on) her partner, or all by herself. The gentle shallow cup-like curve is perfect for stimulating the His testicles or penile region, as well as his chest area. If he's not around, she can enjoy this portion on her breasts, nipples, clitoris, labia, or anywhere she chooses!

Her Piece: Designed with her clit in mind! Ready to stimulate her clit and labia simultaneously, or flip the toy around and leave room for penetrative toys while enjoying the clitoral vibrations. And the good news? The size perfectly fits in your hand, the controls are easy to use, the shape hugs your body just right, and regardless of you anatomy you can enjoy this toy.

Another bonus to the design of the Duex is the fact that the two pieces fit together. Yep, that's right, they are magnetically attracted to one another so you never lose one, they keep cleaner, they look more discreet like an ostrich egg, and they are easy to hide or travel with.

    • Ergonomic
    • Partner play
    • Whimsical / artistic

Functions / Performance / Controls

This toy comes factory locked...To unlock it hold down the - button to the count of two, and then the + and - simultaneously for the count of five, unless you count really slow, and then it will turn on faster! To lock it up, do the exact same thing. A red light means locked, a green means unlocked. Clever, huh? haha

Want to get to the top of power on the Deux? Press and hold the + button once it's on. It will do a "max power" and go right to the top of it's 5 speeds.

Level 1: 1 vroom, 1 bee
Level 2: 1.5 vroom, 1 bee
Level 3: 2 vroom, 2 bees
Level 4: 2.75 vroom, 2 bees
Level 5: 3.2 vroom, 2 bees

In to the different pulse patters? Deux comes equipped with five of those also. All assigned their own colors. This makes for easy instruction for your partner. Get to your patters with the o button, and cycle through them with + or -Patterns include:

--rapid increase decrease of vibrations
--slower pulses
--long steady vibration with very brief intermittent pauses
--rapid pulses followed by steady vibration

Remember this toy is splash proof only. Do not submerge.

Care and Maintenance

Although the Duex is not fully waterproof, Zini again showed thoughtfulness in the creation of the Duex by making it splash proof for easy cleaning. Make sure the charging port is closed and you can run it under water and clean it with mild soap. Do not soak it in any liquid! You can also clean your Duex with your favorite toy cleaner.

The box is a fantastic storage container, which is my preferred way of storing. The Duex isn't a major lint magnet though, so it would probably be fine stored in a nightstand drawer for easy access =D

As far as lubricant goes, PU coated plastic is compatible with water based and silicone based lube, and with a dab added to the toy it will glide easily over any body part you wish to stimulate! Although the material is compatible with silicone based lubes, Zini does specifically steer customers towards water based on this product.


The fact that the Duex is rechargeable is fantastic! But, one bummer about the Deux is the fact that it comes with one charger, but each side of the toy requires separate charging. You can also over-charge these toys which can potentially make them weaker or hold less battery life. Avoid charging for more than 24 hours to prolong battery life.

The charging port is located on the bottom, exterior portion of both halves. There is a plug that covers the charging port (the one that needs to be closed when washing!). It isn't super easy to open the first few times. The little cover is connected to the toy by a small piece of plastic which does appear to be very hardy and shouldn't break off.

Like all products, Zini encourages you to only use the charger that came with the product for charging. However, if you want to be able to charge the halves simultaneously and own other Zini products the chargers are identical.

Zini says that you should charge each half for about two hours. The initial charge, as always, takes a bit longer. I have found this to be fairly consistent. And, even on the highest power setting, the Zini Duex runs for like two hours which is pretty impressive! It really is designed for foreplay!


The Zini packaging is solid, and gift ready! Check it out!

Personal comments

I can honestly say this is the type of toy that has a lot of options. It's not perfect, but it is fantastic. I love what it has done to our foreplay routine. I love the fact that my man actually likes the vibrations. I love the fact that it has mixed things up. And I love the fact that it's totally adorable. There is a lot going on for the Deux. Minor improvements (like waterproofing and a bit more power) would make this my absolute favorite couples toy. Even with the flaws, I am in love with the Deux because it is different. You can own every toy, and not have experienced this just yet.
Follow-up commentary
The Zini Deux may not be my most used toy in my toy box, but it is still an incredible fun change of pace. I love the fact that this toy has his and her's sections, and I really think if they have a second version of this toy come out it will be 5+ stars. I know some people are disappointed with the power in the Zini Deux, but I think there is plenty of power. It's holding up nicely to use, and still looks new. Again I want to advise not to OVERCHARGE this toy. Overcharging the toy can damage the battery.
