My First

This was my first vibrator and is a classic beginner's toy—and well deservedly so. For the money, this is a great buy for anybody looking to get into toys that buzzzzzzz.
Easy to use, easy to care for, great for beginners, inexpensive
Battery hog, not waterproof, variable performance, easy to break motor

Back when I started my long, strange journey into the world of sex toys, this classic stick vibrator is where I began. It seemed like a decent place to begin, and it was. Widely available and easy to use, fairly easy to care for and very straightforward in terms of operation, it is a perfect "beginner" toy for the aspiring toy aficionado.

It is about seven inches long with six inches of insertable length if you feel like inserting it—I always just used it on my clit. Its rigid plastic construction makes it fairly easy to clean and fairly safe, but be sure to realize that the battery casing is at the bottom and that the grooves you use to tighten the cap on can trap fluids, lube, etc.—make sure to keep it clean! If you are going to be inserting this (or even if you aren't) you may want to cover this with a condom for easier cleanup. And if you're going to be sharing, always cover it, just in case.

As this is made of plastic, you can use any lube you want with it and it'll be fine. Be aware that it is smooth and that it gets SLIPPERY—it may be hard to keep this little guy in your hands if you get all lubed up.

It is not waterproof, and it cannot be put through the dishwasher, boiled to sanitize, or otherwise exposed to extreme temperature—wash this with a hot, soapy washcloth or with toy cleaner, and dry it well.

To use, simply twist the ring at the base. The speed of vibrations is up to you, but I found that it functioned less well at lower speeds and that the speed, even at full, was quite variable. Fresher batteries, shaking it around, and just many things affected performance on this. The vibrations when the batteries were fresh and well-seated were nice and strong and even. If the batteries were poorly seated or running low, it was far more hit or miss.

You may want to store this without the batteries in—mine would have the nasty habit of occasionally turning itself on and leaving me without batteries! Oh no! It is quite loud, but it's not so loud that you couldn't mask it by covering up with some blankets, closing the door, or turning up some music.

To store it, just clean after use, throw it in a toy box or sock drawer or wherever you want to keep it—it's not hard to find somewhere to keep this, and since it is made of smooth, hard plastic, it will not collect dust or lint or hair the way some toys can.

All in all, I don't have anything bad to say about this—other than that the motor died out slowly and painfully, leaving strangely lopsided vibrations, and that it was sort of a battery hog. But for a beginner's toy, you really can't go wrong, and for the price, it's a good buy.

    I had trouble with waster getting under the cap and gathering rust, but otherwise it's long-lasting.
