Packs a Surprisingly Powerful Punch!

If you're looking for a very powerful clitoral vibrator, this may be just the toy you're looking for. With its wide range of speeds and vibration patterns, there is something for everyone. It's completely submersible in water, making it pretty unique. There are a few downsides to this toy (including the buttons which are a little difficult to use in the heat of the moment and the fact that's it's on the noisy side), but it's still a winner!
Super strong vibrations. Velvety smooth texture. Rechargeability. Completely submersible.
No dedicated on/off. Buttons hard to use at times. Charger can be frustrating. Noisy.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
As one of those women who find it impossible to climax without clitoral stimulation, I am always looking for a better, more effective product to provide quicker, stronger orgasms - especially products that are "partner friendly" that can be used during or apart from actual intercourse. I had decided to invest in a "higher end" vibrator rather than to keep buying cheaper ones that mostly end up being disappointing. So I did what I always do - I read reviews on a ton of them and asked for advice. I had narrowed my choices down to (3) more expensive ones, but to my surprise this was the one recommended to me - surprise because it was a good bit cheaper than the ones I was considering. After much deliberation, I chose this one and I'm glad I did.

The product actually arrived in (2) separate boxes (almost thought I had won something). One box contained the charger, the other contained the vibe. The boxes were pretty classy and informative. The vibrator box has a window so you can view the actual product. And there is a magnetic door that opens to reveal more information. Both boxes contained instructions for use written in several languages (I actually had to hunt for English). Fun Factory states the vibrator is made of 100% silicone (so of course, ONLY water-based lubes and cleaners should be used). It is firm, but coated with a lovely silky soft silicone. I got the red and it's a gorgeous color. I noticed absolutely no odor. The majority of the vibrator is smooth, but it does have some raised embellishments of butterflies and flowers to add texture. I really, really like the size - not too big, not too small. Total length is about 5 1/2" with insertable length being around 3 1/4". The diameter is about 1 1/4". The vibe was not charged on arrival so I immediately plugged it in. (It stated it would take up to 6 hours to charge initially, so I wanted to have that puppy ready for the evening!)

I admit I was a little frustrated with the magnetic charger. The charger itself gets plugged into your outlet and then there is a flat disc on the other end that magnetically clicks onto the black base of the vibrator. When it's making proper contact, the word FUN lights up. It gives you over 50" of wire, so it's plenty long. Maybe it's the way I have to lay it that the charger just doesn't stay properly positioned. My issue is kids. I can't leave it charging on the kitchen counter or any place visible to the kiddos (four are old enough to have an idea what it is and I don't want to traumatize them). So I have to keep it plugged in on my bedside stand hidden behind some items (toddlers, which I have two of, don't believe in mommy's and daddy's personal space and they've had many happy times sneaking in to play with our "toys" - I even once caught my 2 year old giving our bulldog a back massage with of my vibrators). But I digress. I'm not sure the charging problem would be so bad if I wasn't so completely limited in my options. It seems I get it on properly (the word FUN lights up on the charger) and just one tiny bump (or it seems even breathing near it sometimes) will move it just enough to stop the contact. However, I'll gladly keep working around this minor frustration. I've used it many times and the vibration is just as strong as when I first got it, so I don't think I will have to charge it often.

Besides the rechargeability (which means NO batteries - a HUGE plus because with 6 kids around, we can't keep batteries stocked), another rather unique features of this toy is that it's waterproof - and I don't mean just "splash proof" like most toys are. It's completely submersible. You can try drowning this thing in a pool of water and it just keeps plugging away. It's amazing! Now, this isn't necessarily a feature I'll use often (maybe when we're older and the kids have all moved out and we can go on vacations), but it's nice to have it available for the rare moments we have those opportunities.
As someone who has been disappointed with the lack of vibration abilities in pretty most every toy I've owned, I was wowed with the power on this thing! I counted (9) different vibration speeds and there are (3) different patterns (escalation, short bursts and quick bursts). The stronger vibrations are more than enough to send me through the roof! Its smaller size makes it easy to use, even during intercourse. I never have a problem achieving an orgasm with this!

It's also super easy to keep clean. Water-based cleaner or soap and water does the trick in a snap.

A few minor issues I had: There is no dedicated on/off switch. No biggie. But it's much more convenient than having to scroll back down and off. Another negative about this toy is that it's pretty darn noisy. Surprisingly noisy. Again, this isn't an issue for us, but if you're looking for something discreet in the noise department, this isn't the one for you.

The shape was also a bit odd for me. There is a flatter side that has a large, textured butterfly on it that seems like it should go against the clitoris. When using toys, I like to have the control buttons handy. Usually I hold a toy similar to this so that I can push the buttons with my thumb. However, if I hold it in this position, the flattened, textured area is on top. If I hold it so that my index finger is near the buttons to control them, the flattened, textured area ends up to the side. So I have to set it and then position it. If I want to change settings, I have to completely turn it around to change them, and then reposition the vibrator. That can be frustrating to say the least.

Probably my biggest issue with this toy is the buttons. They are located above the black base directly on the silicone part of the toy. I have a difficult time finding them by feel, so I tend to have to hold it up and squint to find them if it's fairly dark in our room. Even in the light, they don't stand out all that much. There are (2) buttons, one with a plus and one with a negative. You have to hold down the plus button for a couple seconds to turn it on. To adjust the speeds, you can either hold the plus or negative and it will escalate or decrease the speed in one smooth motion - to the highest or lowest setting. Or you can press and release either button to go up or down one speed at a time. To start the patterns, you have to again, hold down the plus button for a couple of seconds to start the pattern selections, then you can scroll through them. It works, but I would have liked to have had glow-in-the dark buttons, different colored buttons or just something that would have stood out more and something a bit easier to operate in the heat of the moment when you have other things on your mind!
