Traditional vibrator

Betty Does SinFive...........Meet the ilo

All in all, the ilo was fun to open, nice to look at, and impressive in stature and origin. But dear readers, I have to tell you... the result from the ilo is the same as the result you could get from a ten dollar remote control bullet. They will both make you come quick, but with the gas prices... save some money, buy a pocket rocket.
Impressive packaging, intense vibrations, ergonomic controls.
The price is just not right. Bob Barker says no.

useful review
I had read up on this unique piece before it arrived, trying to understand it's origins and design. SinFive is a relatively new German company (less than three years old) producing contemporary erotic products ranging from vibrators to couples games|Adult games for couples. Their website is a little difficult to navigate (much of the available information was in German) but I managed to browse through a bit. What I can tell you is that before it arrived at my door, I was well aware that this toy was well-designed and should knock my socks off. I was ready!

The box resembled the type of packaging you would find a high end electronic device in. From first glance, I knew this toy had to be a winner. As I dug deeper into the box, I was surprised to find a user's manual (tell me how many toys you own that have THAT) and a WARRANTY. I almost died. A one year guarantee with an additional four year option. How do you like that? I didn't want to throw the box away. Actually, I plan to store the SinFive ilo in its box. That's how impressed I was with the package.

Now the vibe itself is strange. Made completely out of TPR, the texture is a little wild. Very soft, but a little tough. However the vibe bends with little effort and springs back quickly. The top part of the shaft presents with four ribbed sections, meeting together at the tip. Looking down at the tip of the vibe, the four sections come together in a four leaf clover shape.

The controls are ergonomically placed on the shaft of the vibe, right above the battery compartment: a plus sign to increase intensity and change function and a minus sign to reduce intensity or power off. According to the manual, SinFive ilo|SinFive Ilo is safe to use with silicone- or water-based lubes. On the down side, this toy is not really made for group fun (much to my chagrin). TPR is very porous and cannot be sanitized with boiling water. So unless you use a condom with it, I do not recommend sharing. However, clean up is simple. Soap and water or any commercial toy cleaner is safe to use.

So DJ and I made some alone time to play with my new toy. I am not one to purchase a traditional vibe (I prefer multi-function) but I opened my mind to give ilo the best chance possible to make my day. I was very enamored with it so far, so I expected an intense experience.

Now, as far as a clitoral vibe goes, the ilo is spot on. She sports six levels of intensity and three different functions. Moderately noisy but not loud enough to be heard through a closed door. The vibration itself was very intense, the highest setting left me a bit numb after a minute or two. The function I found myself adoring was the "rollercoaster" setting. Very nice, total win. DJ flipped through the settings over and over again, training the clover on my clit. The clover shape is ingenious, covering a very wide area and bringing pinpoint precision to stimulation. DJ decided to see what it would do if it were inserted. Truth be told, I could have left it on my clit and called it a night, but...

By itself, the ilo felt like any other ordinary vibrator. Without clitoral stimulation, the result was a bit boring. So, after a few minutes of the old "in and out" we returned the clover to my clit and the rest was history. The orgasm was nice, but not what I would expect from a hundred dollar vibrator. For that price, I wanted to be blown out of the water, but I found myself floundering in low tide. I was disappointed, I really wanted to love the ilo. What I love most about toys is their ability to provide you new sensations and experiences. This toy left me wanting more.

    Nice review! I would expect, also, for that price, a silicone toy. Odd choice on their part.
  • Contributor: Dame Demi
    I've been very curious about this line of vibes.  Thanks for the great review, and letting me know I can save my money on something that will provide a more unique and spectacular experience.  They are pretty, though.

    I figured that's how this toy would be: good, but not worth $100. I also kinda think it looks like a tampon, so that's weird.
  • Contributor: Essin' Em
    Too bad it was so disappointing...I was kind of going to hope that this toy would work miracles, or something, but I guess not :(
  • Contributor: Adriana Ravenlust
    It does look like a tampon a bit, now that it's been mentioned.

    How exactly does the controls work? Is the white ring the control? none of the pictures here give me a good idea. 
  • Contributor: Bulma
    $100 for an average toy with great packaging sounds like kind of a bummer.  At least it doesn't look really cheap and does work well for clit stimulation.  Think I'll pass on it though...

    Great review, by the way! 
  • Contributor: Betty Rocket
    The controls are on the side of the lower part of the shaft. Plus sign and minus sign. :)

  • Contributor: Betty Rocket
    Minxy-Thanks hon! I love it when someone appreciates my humor  I did not try twisting it a bit, I wonder.....tell you what, I will try it and post a follow up!
  • Contributor: Naughty Student

    never got used... batteries odd size and dies out to quickly..almost burned my fingers on it... dont waste ur money ...once u think u have it going it goes by itself and dies ..not fun
  • Contributor: Betty Rocket
    For that price, it better take me to dinner after
  • Contributor: MisterMan
    Hmmm. Well for those of use that don't like a broken vibrator after 1 month of use I guess the warranty and added value might be more appealing. You can spend 10$ but you do get what you pay for... 5 YEARS WARRANTY!!?? That's where the cost comes in. How many simple vibrators does one go through in 5 years? Probably more than a hundred dollars worth.

    I'll say it again...You get what you pay for.
  • Contributor: Betty Rocket
    Mister Man-If this toy had a few more features, I would see the expense being worth it. this case, I think i'd pick a toy that is similar in price, with a warranty, with more functions. Thanks for the comment!
  • Contributor: Ice Ice Baby
    hmmm... I don't know who is commenting in my name but the comment made earlier (well 8 months ago...) was not made by me! I have never tried this vibrator and I would never use such bad speach. *hmpf*

    But I am a bit ambivalent towards this company. They make attractive products, offer 5 year warranty so they must be well made, but why not silicone? why not!
