I Got Screwed....

If this toy were a different material, I would recommend it to anyone. However, the material isn't very safe, which makes this toy less valuable to me. I would recommend paying an extra 10 bucks to get a toy with a higher safety rating.

Use

Today, I am writing about the Emerald Screw Vibrator. This California Exotics toy is best used for clitoral stimulation. It is a jelly material, so, in all honesty, I would not recommend inserting it in any orifices without putting a condom on it beforehand. It is not a very discreet toy. It is loud and rather large. Couples can use it for teasing or foreplay and it could be used for solo action. I would also recommend saving this toy for the bedroom. It is not recommended for use in the shower.

Material / Texture

The material is the biggest complaint I have about this toy. It is made out of jelly, which has a safety rating of 2 out of 10. This material is NOT hypoallergenic. I did have a slight allergic reaction to this toy. Jelly is also a very sticky material. When this toy was delivered to me, it was cold outside. And when I took it out of the packaging, it was wrapped in a baggie. The toy got so cold that it was sticking to the baggie. Another thing about the jelly material is that it does have a light odor, but not near as bad as a crystalline toy. It is also porous and sticky, which can make it very difficult to clean. The one good thing about the material is that it is very flexible. The toy can even be bent at a 90-degree angle. The texture is bulbed like a screw, which is very appealing. This toy would be perfect if it weren't for the material. The material makes it lose some of its versatility as a toy.

Design / Shape / Size

The design of this toy is perfect. It is phallic shape in addition to the screw design going up the toy. It is 7 inches and very true to the real thing. The size is perfect for someone who is more advanced with toys. I would not recommend it for a beginner toy. It is not very subtle or suitable for travel, and it is not very easy to hide. With a diameter of an inch and a half and a circumference of 4 inches and 3/4, this toy is very true to size to a real penis, which is one of the perks of this toy. The vibrator is lodged right in the middle of the shaft of the toy, so the vibrations can be felt throughout the entire toy.

    • Realistic

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrator has a cord with a handheld, battery-operated control (2 AAA batteries). I turned the toy on after having it for a month, with minimal use, and the strength was still as strong as it was with fresh batteries. I cannot speak as someone who uses the toy regularly about how long the batteries last. At its strongest setting, it is a very intense toy. It is a loud toy and not very discreet. The control is a convenient and easy to use dial. It is not to be used in water.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Not discreet at all

Care and Maintenance

I would recommend washing this toy with soap and water. I have tried using toy wipes on this toy, and it doesn't seem to clean it good enough. When storing this toy, I just keep it in the box that it came in. I keep it in a drawer in a dry room.
    • Easy to store
    • Hard to clean

Packaging

The toy came in a cardboard box wrapped in a plastic baggie. It is not discreet in this manner either. It did not come with instructions, but the toy is easy to use anyways, so I personally believe that this toy did not require instructions. The packaging cannot be used as a gift, but as mentioned earlier, I do store the toy in the box.
    • Not discreet

Experience

Personally, my experience with this toy is kind of bittersweet. The toy was perfect for my personal preference, except for the material. I suffered an mild allergic reaction to it, and definitely do NOT recommend this toy to anyone who could be sensitive to certain materials. This toy was perfect for clitoral stimulation. The jelly material has a safety rating of a 2, so I definitely would not recommend it for insertion. It is not subtle in any way, including the packaging, so I wouldn't recommend it for someone who is trying to be discreet about their toy use.

    Sounds like you should be wrapping this in a condom every time you use it if it is causing a skin reaction. Did you try putting it in a condom and inserting it? The feeling of the ridges might be nice for thrusting. Thanks for the review.

    I'm not thrilled with jellies either. I use a condom on the one jelly toy I have. It's a rabbit that works so well, I can't get rid of him.

    I love the color on this one.
  • Curiouscat
    I agree, the color is beautiful. But since it's a jelly thats a no go for me. I just threw out all my jelly toys not to long ago. Even with a condom they are disgustingly horrible, and the chemicals can still get through into your body.

    Nice review on it, thank you for sharing

    Jimbo, I've stopped using the toy after the allergic reaction. I've only used it once, and am not going to use it again. I am not getting anymore jelly toys after this bad experience with the one. I am hoping to find a toy that's just like it, aside from the material though.

    Too bad about the allergic reaction. Hope you find something that is similar. Thank for the review.

    Again, so sorry this toy sucked so bad. It's tough to write a review for a toy like this. I hope your lingerie turns out well!
