Not Usually a Fan of Chess, but I've Made an Exception

While the Pawn may not be the strongest vibrator out there, it produces a lot of intensity for its size. This, along with the appealing design and extreme portability of this toy may easily fill a niche in many individual's collections.
Could be more powerful, but still impressive vibrations for its size
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This little vibrator is very versatile in that it could easily be used for solo or couple play. Because of its tiny size and fun shape, it would also be an excellent product for users who are wanting to get their feet wet in the realm of toys. It's quite small, but don't let that fool you. For its size, it packs a punch.

Material / Texture

The Pawn has absolutely no scent or taste whatsoever.

It is made of PU coated plastic which is safe to use with both water-based and silicone-based lube. This is something that really won me over as I prefer to use silicone-based lube whenever possible. So much so, that I'll sometimes go against my better judgment and use it with silicone toys. So I was very pleased to find out that my mind could be at ease with this one.

The overall feel of the vibrator is amazingly sexy. It's completely smooth and feels as if it is made of velvet. Just running it over our bodies without it even being powered on felt great.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

One of our favorite things about this vibrator is the way it looks. It has a very aesthetically pleasing design, and the deep pink color just makes it that much more fun. If we left this lying around, it's also one of those designs that wouldn't scream "Look at me! I'm a sex toy!"

The curves in the body are very sleek and provided a nice feel when holding onto the vibrator.

The dimensions of the vibrator are as follows:
Length: 4"
Diameter: 1 1/4"
Circumference: 4"
Insertable Length: 2 1/4"

I love the ease at which this vibrator can be controlled. To power it on, simply twist the base slightly. The more you twist, the more power it gives. When you're done, twist it back to its original position. No other buttons or dials to get in the way of the simple design.

My wife and I are both very much looking forward to the next time that we travel as this will without a doubt be one of the toys that we bring with us. Neither of us expected it to be as small as it is. It could easily be slipped into your pocket, purse, whatever!

Functions / Performance / Controls

This vibrator runs off of only one AAA battery, so we did not expect the vibrations to send us to the moon and back. However, keeping this (and the very size of the toy) in mind, the power it produced was surprisingly decent. And the noise that it makes is very minimal and wouldn't even be heard from across the room. After using it earlier today, I've decided it is probably a toy that might be generally better suited for lighter sessions, and maybe not for those "I've got to cum right now!" sessions. Is this a negative? Not necessarily, as I still think that the Pawn has its place.

To access the battery compartment, simply grip the base at the white portion of the Pawn and unscrew.

An awesome feature of the Pawn is that it is completely waterproof. Having said that, I noticed that there was a very slight gap between the base and the white portion when the base had been twisted to turn it on. Though I can't say for sure that this would affect its performance in water, it did concern me a bit. I don't plan on using it fully submerged, though, so I'm not terribly worried.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Because of the waterproof nature of the Pawn, cleaning is very easy. After using it, we simply ran it under some warm water and lathered it up with some anti-bacterial soap.

And due to the tiny size of the Pawn, storage won't be a headache either. We simply keep it in the packaging that it came in.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The Pawn came in a small plastic capsule just slightly larger than it. The bottom of the capsule pops out, and the vibrator is easily removed. My wife and I both thought that the packaging was fun, and it matched the feel of the product very well. The fact that it is being used as the storage container for the Pawn is awesome, too!

No instructions were included in the packaging. This was not an issue, though, as it is very easy to figure out how to operate it.
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal
    • Would make a nice gift


As I mentioned earlier, the Pawn doesn't produce earthshaking vibrations. But be patient with it, and it will do the job.

When it arrived today, my wife and I couldn't wait to try it out. We immediately ran to the bedroom to start playing. I first decided to just turn it on low and run it up and down her body. She said that it felt incredibly relaxing, and that she was already getting pleasure from it. As our session progressed, I focused more on her clitoris. This started to drive her crazy. Again, keep in mind that this little thing is running on a single AAA battery. Within minutes, I gave the Pawn to her and we began to have intercourse while she continued to stimulate her clitoris. Just a minute or two later, and she was there! I was blown away at the short amount of time it took for her to cum.

So while this vibrator may not be everyone's cup of tea, it has definitely earned a place in our collection, and we will continue to use it frequently, I'm sure.
Follow-up commentary
The Pawn is still just as good as it was on day one. Though obviously not the most powerful vibrator in our collection, we still love using this occasionally in the shower, and for light teasing. We've also taken this on vacation a couple times since writing the review, and have been glad to have such a small toy of such quality with us.
