This is definitely not supposed to be some powerhouse toy. It's a very average, but it should create enough stimulation for most users to orgasm. It may take some time and effort, but you will eventually get there. It's a good warm-up toy to use during foreplay, and I would recommend this product to beginners and couples first experimenting with toys in the bedroom.
Unique shape and design, good for beginners, inexpensive, waterproof, travel friendly, cute packagin
Boring, may be too weak for some
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Pawn is primarily designed for clitoral stimulation, but you can also insert it for some shallow stimulation as well. This is one of those products that are a great start for beginners. It's inexpensive, it has decent vibrations, it's made of a safe material, and it's less intimidating for couples using sex toys for the first time. Beginners will really like this toy at first but will eventually want to upgrade to something with more power and options. The more experienced users might be disappointed in a toy like this and should probably consider purchasing something different.

Material / Texture

The Pawn is made of a hard plastic that has a smooth, velvety finish to it. ABS Plastic is a perfectly body safe material that is non-porous, hypo-allergenic, and latex and phthalate free. It doesn't collect lint or hair and there is no unpleasant taste or smell to it. This toy is completely smooth and it lacks texture, so if that's what you're looking for, you will not find it with this product. Plastic is a firm material that doesn't bend or give out, so you can depend on it for direct stimulation.

Design / Shape / Size

I found The Pawn to be quite unique in terms of design for a sex toy. The Pawn is designed after a chess pawn, and it really does somewhat resemble one. The Pawn is small in size, perfect for traveling, and can fit nicely in the palm of my hand. The Pawn has a bulbous head and a bulbous base, with both ends tapering back down and going back into a smaller bulge in the middle of the vibrator. The bulbous head gives a very broad stimulation around the clitoris rather than a pinpoint stimulation. The total length of The Pawn is 4 inches long with an insertable length of 2 1/2 inches. The bulbous head is 4 inches in circumference and the bulbous base of the toy is just around 4 1/2 inches in circumference, being the widest point of the toy. The bulge located in the middle of the toy is 3 1/2 inches in circumference. The unique design and shape of this toy makes it pretty discreet and unless someone has a lot of time to figure it out, they shouldn't know what this toy is used for.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Pawn is 100% waterproof and multi-speed. The vibrations on this toy gradually increase from low to high and they are controlled by turning the base of the toy. The vibrations are buzzy and they feel deep, as far as staying strong when you apply a lot of pressure. You can feel the buzzy-ness of the vibrations throughout the entire toy but they are strongest at the bulbous head of the toy. As long as you screw the base of the toy on tightly, you can safely use this toy in the shower, bath, or pool/jacuzzi. As far as noise goes, you can hear a slight buzz but it's really not loud at all. I doubt that anyone would be able to hear this through a bedroom door. Experienced users might find this toy to be very boring, but I think it's good for beginners and couples just experimenting with sex toys.

The Pawn requires 1 AAA battery. All you have to do is screw off the base and insert the battery negative side first. Make sure to screw the base back on very tight, especially if you plan on taking in the water. Also make sure you remove the battery after every use.

    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Not enough variety

Care and Maintenance

The Pawn is compatible with both silicone and water-based lubricants. Since it has a motor you can't boil it or run it through the dishwasher, but it can be easily cleaned with warm water and a mild soap or a toy cleaner of your choice. You could also use toy wipes for a quick clean-up. Storing the Pawn is just as easy as cleaning it, if not even easier. I store mine in the original packaging because it barely takes up any space, but it's also perfectly safe to store with other toys.

I'm a big fan of Evolved and in my opinion, I think Evolved has some of the cutest packaging on the market. A lot of the packaging is good for storage, and I also think they make great gifts for a close girlfriend or a bride to be! Personally, I use the packaging for storage because it's really small, it protects my toy, and it's not bulky, so it doesn't take up much space at all. The Pawn doesn't come with any instructions, but it does have a small amount of information about the toy printed on the packaging. It's completely see-through, and I wouldn't consider it to be discreet.
