Let the Pleasure Be Awakened

In all the Tawny is a wonderful toy. My girlfriend is grateful that I opened her eyes to vibrators and loves this one but I believe I may have created a monster as she now looks at vibrators on E.F. like a lion looks at a Zebra...! Overall of the Tawny is a good basic vibrator that is very low cost, offers an unique look and feel.
Easy to use, Powerful, Can be used many ways
UR3 material collects too much dust, Extremely long/stretched sleeve:covers the dial.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This was the first vibrating insertable toy my present girlfriend has ever used, or had used on her. Being sexually shy, as well as, inexperienced resulted in some apprehension as to what exactly I intended to do with this pink nubby thing. Keep in mind that the Tawny UR3 is a sleeved vibrator, that is a hard plastic vibrator that is covered with an outer material. It is powered by 2 AA batteries, and is very light on the consumption side. The new batteries that were installed upon getting it are still like new, the power and reaction is still the same after some 20+ uses of 1 plus hour of play. The one thing that stuck out right away was the loud buzzing when the vibrator is on high. But, unlike some vibrators there are very powerful deep vibrations behind that buzz, so don't let the sound fool you. The material is not attached, or part of it, so it will slide and move around. The toy is suitable for solo masturbation as well as partnered play. The vibrator is suited best for vagina/clitoris stimulation. With the intensity of the vibrations, this could be used for stimulating or teasing any area of ones body that you would want to. Our sessions with this toy ranged from outright planed sex, to the spur of the moment romp. The only thing to note is, with the UR3 material is so porous the surface attracts a lot of dust and hair. It is wise to follow the idea's given here [ https://www.edenfantasys.com/sex-guides-and-tips/guides/materials/ultra-realistic] on how to minimize the need to clean, clean, clean, clean the toy all the time. We found that the use for this toy is only limited to ones imagination. It does have a quite powerful vibrator that produces strong solid vibrations even at the lowest of settings. The only part to be mindful of, even thought one could possibly use this vibrator for anal stimulation and insertion, I would strongly suggest to use caution, as this vibrator isn't designed for safe anal sex. The base lacks any type of flaring that would stop it from fully sliding into the anus. The UR3 material becomes so slick that I could see a very good possibility of losing the toy anally if not careful. The UR3 material is great but like I have said already, it becomes extremely slippery when your hand has lube or other fluids on it, that with the fact that the sleeve itself slides down over the bottom, at times turning the toy off or turning the speed up or down with slippery hands is a bit of a chore.

Material / Texture

Even though this toy does have the nubs that are on it, for our experience leaving them in the straight up down pattern that is shown did not really do much for even a beginner. Beings this was a first toy, I had taken the sleeve off to clean it completely before playing with it. Then I allowed my girlfriend to get used to the vibrator without the nubs for the first few times of use. The only thing that was noticed with the sleeve on was that it was a little bit thicker, the nubs were undetectable. Putting the sleeve back on after cleaning, it twisted a little so that it spiraled. The next use, we found out that the little twist in the sleeve was just what the doctor ordered, She could now feel the nubs, and from her own words,.."OH MY GOD...!" I would have to say that anyone could use this toy sleeved or not the first time off. The only thing to remember is that the UR3 does NOT play well with silicone based lubes, so stick to the water based ones only.

The UR3 material [https://www.edenfantasys.com/sex-guides-and-tips/guides/materials/ultra-realistic] really is a wonder still to me. It is soft and flexible with just the right amount of realness to it, that makes it pleasurable to use and have used on you. There is very little scent to it, and no taste what so ever, well as long as it hasn't been used yet!

Design / Shape / Size

Size wise, I believe the Tawny is quite good as a starter toy as well as a toy that could add some excitement or difference to the avid user. If you are one that needs the length or width in your toy, then the Tawny might not be for you. Even though the real size of it is impressive. The vibrator it self is the standard 1 inch wide by almost a full 7 inches long. With the sleeve on it, it measures 7 inches in length, and where the nubs are is 1 1/2 inches, the rest measures out at 1 1/4. The toy is solid, so if g-spot stim is what your looking for you may have to play around with it in order to find the right position and technique for finding yours. At little over 7 inches long, and only 1 1/2 inches, this toy is easily hid anywhere, and could be transported quite easily if needed.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Vibration control is the basic turn dial at the base of the battery cover. The multi-speed dial is very sensitive, with the smallest of turns on the dial you can feel the increase or decrease of the vibrators motor. The toy does have a bit of weight to it, the motor is located right in the tip, making for excellent clitoris stimulation, or anywhere else one would like to pin-point. One thing that was annoying was the fact that the sleeve has a tendency to stretch out and cover not only the end of the toy, but also the dial that turns it on and off. While the motor is very strong, so is the noise that is produced by it. Even at low settings, one is able to tell that there is something going on. At high, well it is even more obvious that there is a toy roommate's away. So if you need to be discrete about your personal time and have nosy roommate's or the like, take heed to make sure that your adventures will not be heard. We found that the radio turned up just a bit will cover the buzzing, and what is going on in a room.

Care and Maintenance

The UR3 [https://www.edenfantasys.com/sex-guides-and-tips/guides/materials/ultra-realistic] material is not compatible with silicone based lubes, being it is part silicone it could cause the sleeve part to deteriorate. Cleaning the toy is easy with warm water and anti-bacterial soap. I would let the toy air dry or pat with a lint free cloth or towel. I recommend that the storage of this toy and other UR3 based toys be stored in plastic baggies. Zip-Lock freezer bags work just great! This keeps the toy from collecting dust as it does seem like its a dust magnet at times.

The toy came in the hard plastic cover that closes into itself creating a clamshell like case. Instruction wise, it does note that the toy IS NOT water proof. So it is not a good tub/shower toy to use. If one wanted to, they could give this as it is as a gift, or even to store the toy in after use if wanted. The problem comes in the fact that the packaging itself is 5 inches wide by 13 inches long. This could pose a problem if someone is cramped for space. Also the packaging is clear so you can see through it, which may pose other problems as well if one is trying to keep things hidden.

    • Not discreet
    • Would make a nice gift

Personal comments

With this toy, as any toy.... Make sure you use enough lube. Being the first time that my girlfriend had experienced a toy it was important to make sure that things stayed lubed enough so that it didn't become dry and painful. The nubs have a tendency to push lube in, as well as, pull what lube is in the vagina out. So while using, be mindful of how things are on a slippery scale as well as enjoyment. The sleeve will stretch down the length and past the end of the toy if not enough lube is used.
Follow-up commentary
The Tawny UR3 is still a good go-to vibrator for us, as the girlfriend is still getting used to and recognizing her body as a sexual being; and, as she allows herself to become more of that, I look to the Tawny being used more and more. In the review part of evaluating this toy, I cut a good inch off the bottom of the sleeve, as it would stretch out and cover the dial while being inserted into the vagina. The removal of this extra material still proves to be a good choice, as even with extended times of play, the material does not stretch over the controller.

The one thing that has not changed which was a draw-back to this toy is the fact that the little sucker attracts lint, cat hair, and dust like a magnet does steel. My solution to this was to roll the sleeve off the toy after cleaning and drying, and then placing it in a cheap, sealing plastic bag. An off-brand zip-lock bag is an excellent choice.

Still, I am glad that I was able to review this toy, if not just for myself, but for my girlfriend as well. This was the first toy that she had ever used/had used on her. With that being said, I can still see this as a very good toy for anyone looking for something a little different.
