Nice try, Durex

This disposable finger vibrator is made of TPR silicone and the bullet has a pleasing swirled texture. The finger sheath fits snugly on smaller fingers, but the vibrations are fairly weak. If you're at the grocery store desperate for something, anything that vibrates, and you are OK with a vibrator that will die after 35 minutes, then this is your toy.

My boyfriend and I are big fans of Durex Extra Sensitive condoms. When we started having sex, we tried a few different types of condoms and he preferred those. Plus, they consistently garner high marks in tests and surveys. So the most exciting part of the Play Vibrations Focus was that it came with an extra sensitive condom.

The small pink box featured a drawing of the vibrator and the promise of "sensual pleasure" and "new intimate fun!" (New. Really.) Inside, the vibrator was nestled in a plastic casing with a thin sheath of plastic covering it. The plastic read "EXP 2011." There was a tab on the edge of the plastic sheath for peeling the cover away to get to the vibrator. I'll admit I enjoyed peeling it off. A lot.

The packaging kept telling me the toy was good for "approximately 20 minutes of pleasure," so it quickly became clear that this is a disposable vibrator. Along with the condom, the box contained an informational pamphlet for the condom and a booklet for the vibrator that included the very obvious instructions for operating it (and confirmation that once the battery dies, it's over).

During sex, this vibrator fit snugly on my finger, not spinning or falling off, but that's about the only thing it succeeded at. The bullet has an interesting swirled texture to it that feels nice on the skin, but the vibrations. The vibrations! They just weren't remotely strong. Comparable to the first vibration level of any other vibrator: not horrible, just not that good.

I knew the moment I touched it to my clit that I wasn't going to get off on that vibration. Even so, I forced my boyfriend to try it on for size. Unless he wanted to put his pinkie in the sheath, it did not fit his fingers. He could put them inside it, but only a little bit, which does not allow for much control. Considering I already take years to cum during sex, we tossed the vibe onto the nightstand and grabbed my Xtreme pack G-spot bullet (jeez, I should be banned from mentioning that toy in my reviews, but it always seems to pop up!).

On another day, I decided to give the toy a chance to make me cum during a masturbation session. I turned on an incredibly hot Naughty America scene between Roxy Deville and Steven St. Croix. Considering I was basically instantaneously wet, it was no surprise that the vibrator felt good on my clit. But any vibration from anything would've seemed good.

As time went by, my frustration mounted. With any other toy, I would've turned it up to a stronger vibration level. Without that option, I could only fantasize about another toy (not mentioning names!).

It did get me off. But my orgasm was very unfulfilling; I actually felt like I needed to continue to masturbate.

The vibrator's lifespan was 35 minutes. With the very low bar set at 20 minutes, I guess this was an accomplishment.

It seems clear to me that Durex is marketing this toy to people who don’t know any better, people who don’t know they could get a non-disposable finger vibe for practically the same price (and it would most likely have stronger vibrations, too). Good try, Durex, but you can't fool me. Please, stick with making kick-ass condoms.
Experience
As I was finishing up this review, I asked my boyfriend, "what are the pros of this?"

He said, "it vibrates."

    A pro for this vibrator: your review made me laugh!

    Roxy DeVille is like an instant orgasm.
  • Beautiful Dreamer
    So basically... this thing is 67 cents a minute and the vibration sucks?? Sounds... well... terrible.
  • Epiphora
    Backseat Boohoo: Could you get any cooler!?
    Beautiful Dreamer: You're so right!
  • Dragon
    disposable vibrator? hey! That's a koool... idea. Not for me, but a great marketing ploy. Nice writeup about how it actually works. Thanks.
  • Bulma
    Ha ha, great review :) I tried a disposable vibrating cock ring from durex, and I would say the experience was similar...a total let down. They really should just stick to making condoms.
  • Epiphora
    Bulma: I saw that they had a cock ring... I bet it's the same exact type of battery as this, which would not be a sufficient battery for a cock ring at all!
  • Adriana Ravenlust
    The idea of a disposable vibe has always been more fantastic than practical, I think. Plus, it equates to a lot of wasted plastic.

    Good review though
  • Snappy
    What a rip-off. Thanks for the review.
  • Backseat Boohoo
    Dude, I am so infinitely cool, they need a new word for it. =E

    I realize I'm probably in the minority, but I would never spend more than $10 for ANY disposable item, let alone one that sucked as much as this one did. I'd rather spend a bit more on something that'll last me a good while.
  • Ariane
    Maybe some of the new-to-vibrations types who would buy this item will get the gears turning in their heads after using it. Perhaps they'll realize "Wait! Wait! If this itty bitty vibrating thing feels good, maybe a real vibrator will feel REALLY good! And last longer!"

    Well, I can hope, anyway - no one should have to suffer through weak vibrations!
  • Epiphora
    Yeah, Adriane, that's about the only use I can think of for it. Although it might deter people once the vibration dies and they have to go out looking for something else. :/
  • Ariane
    I suppose if one was REALLY motivated, one could sneakily place a bunch of EdenFantasys affiliate cards (or whatever those things are, the ones with your special code on them) right next to boxes of these, and note on the cards that EF ships overnight and DHL?
  • Airlia
    Oooh Roxy Deville! So this one's definitely not for me. I like strong vibrations and H won't be able to use it on me as he has banana fingers. Great advice!
