useful review


This vibrator can be used anywhere on the body, although I find that it is best suited for clitoral stimulation. It is a little bit loud and can probably be heard through a closed door or a wall, but not two. It is simple and a good choice for beginners.

Material / Texture

The material is a smooth plastic, so it is not flexible. This product works really well with a little bit of water based lube, but it is so smooth that I find I am sometimes able to use it without additional lube. It has no taste or smell.
    • No odor
    • Rigid
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The actual shape of the vibrator is simple and it is a really good choice for someone that has never tried a vibrator before and might be a bit hesitant. It can be used for clitoral stimulation or vaginally inserted, but definitely DO NOT use it anally. Personally, I prefer to use it clitorally, because I think it is a little short for vaginal use, and the motor is not quite close enough to the tip of the toy to hit me in the right spot, but it might work for some. The up side to the small size is that it can be stored anywhere and is very suitable for travel.
    • Beginner
    • Discreet look/design

Functions / Performance / Controls

It is controlled with a dial base, which is fine because it makes it harder to turn on accidentally. If you are using this toy by itself, the dial is not a problem. If you are using this with another toy, it might become annoying because you will probably need both hands to turn the dial. There is a significant difference from the lowest speed to the highest speed, which make it good to build up to. It has a decent battery life. The vibrations carry nicely to the bottom of the toy, but I wish that the motor was closer to the tip.
    • Battery guzzler
    • Easy to use
    • Long lasting power

Care and Maintenance

This toy comes clean with a little soap and water, or even a wipe in a pinch. It can be stored anywhere; I just keep mine in a drawer. It is compatible with any kind of lubricant, and I especially like it with a water based lube.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The packaging is simple and basic. It is not conspicuous under gift wrap.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Minimal
    • Would make a nice gift

Personal comments

I like this toy, and I usually use it with another vibrator. I personally like it for clitoral stimulation. This is a great toy for beginners and maybe even for someone who has not had sex yet.
Follow-up commentary
The vibrator is still nice but the one warning that I have is that this thing gets LOUD over time. It definitely becomes a 4 vroom vibrator after you have been using it for awhile. Also, there was one time when I thought my vibrator was breaking because the vibrations were becoming uneven but I changed the batteries and it was fine.

    Isn't it an awful surprise that the noise level increases?! Good review, but perhaps a bit short.

    Did you like that it uses AA batteries? Thanks for the review.

    thanks for the review

    I do like toys that use AA batteries, because they are usually the kind I have lying around. It also only needs one, which is great! It doesn't drain too quickly either.
