Private Meh

This well designed toy made of nonporous plastic has all of the looks and all of the pizazz that I want, but the performance falls short. With only one, strong setting there is no way to build up to the intensity, and I feel like it's going to be too powerful for most users to just jump into it. If you like firm, intense vibrations and you're looking for a travel toy this may be perfect, but otherwise I'd look elsewhere.

Use

This small toy is intended mainly for clitoral use, but it is moderately versatile. Clitorally I like this because of the size and the power. It's good for pinpoint and broad stimulation, and you can also lay it across your labia for more dispersed vibrations.

You also can insert this toy, but I found that it really wasn't long enough for much stimulation. If you have a g-spot lower down and like short thrusting motions this may be better for you, but overall it may be best user externally.

While this is fine for any external teasing, I would not use this for anal play. It has no real handle to speak of, no flared base, and no retrieval cord so even the pros should be wary about this getting 'lost' during anal play. I don't want to hear about anyone having a scare, so please just use a toy made for anal play if you're looking into it.

This would be a fine first toy for beginners or for couples to introduce toys into their relationship in general. The small shape and the fact it isn't really for thrusting would make it hard to bruise anyone, and the cute design would make it fun to use, as well.

This toy passes Ryu's dorm seal of approval because of the small size, the great material, and the low noise level. It's also waterproof so that makes it fine to sneak into the showers with.

Material / Texture

This toy is made of rigid plastic, which is rated an 8 out of 10 on the Eden Safety Scale. Along with other maintenance, you can disinfect this nonporous material with a 10% bleach solution if you ever want to switch users. It had no taste or scent out of the package and hasn't retained any after use.

While it is rather rigid, the plastic itself has a tiny bit of drag to it. The most drag occurs along the colorful parts of the toy, which feel different from the white, smoother material. Even with the slight bit of drag, I didn't find that lube was a necessity for using this toy. This makes it more convenient, especially to toss into an overnigher or a purse, because you don't have to worry about bringing lube.

I feel like both beginners and advanced users will appreciate the safety and ease of use this material has, and that both will appreciate the fact that it needs little lube. If you're looking for something with a lot of drag or that is more flexible, this may not be for you, but otherwise the plastic is nice and feels great.

Design / Shape / Size

This toy is very cute, and the design is what drew me to it, originally. It has a long base that is very easy to hold, and then it widens out. After widening out, it tucks into sort of a 'waist,' which then widens out again. It then ends in a fairly sharp, pointy tip. Around the 'waist' of the toy is a pink, raised ring that makes a cute "O" shape.

What I enjoy about this toy is that the "O" is a great size and shape for cupping the clitoris. Especially for people that don't like intense, pinpoint stimulation this will be a great advantage compared to trying to lay a traditional bullet on it's side and having it roll around.

For those that do like poinpoint vibration, the pointy tip of this will be to their advantage because the vibrations travel well all the way to the tip and can be used for more direct stimulation. The shape and design is really great for whichever type of stimulation you prefer.

At 3.5 inches long altogether, it's fairly obvious why this falls so short used internally. There really isn't any length to thrust with, and the point is a bit sharp to try and thrust with for me, anyways.

Overall, I think that this toy is cute, and that the design is a really great idea. It has something for whatever stimulation you like externally, and it can be used for light insertion, as well. I feel like both beginners and advanced users will like the shape and size of this clitoral toy.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Functions and performance is where this one falls a bit flat for me. This toy is controlled by a single push button on the base of the toy. It has a bit more drag than the rest of the toy making it easy to find, and the button itself is very easy to push. I found that during thrusting it was a bit easy to accidentally hit, but if you're using it for clitoral stimulation you shouldn't have this problem.

There is really only one setting on this toy, and it's pretty powerful. the problem with only having one setting is that it really limits it's audience. If you aren't as into intense vibrations you can't really work yourself up to the powerful setting, and if you like very strong vibrations you have to bet on the one being strong enough for you. The one setting is a strong 3 vrooms and 2 bees.

I found that the vibrations are located mostly in the 'waist' and tip of the toy, with the handle having slightly less intense vibrations. The vibrations are fairly buzzy and topical, but I didn't have any problems with them numbing my fingers.

I used this in the shower and submerged it to clean it and neither time did I find any water in the battery compartment. I can confidently say that this is completely waterproof.

I would recommend this toy to those looking for something small and portable, and also to those who only want one, fairly strong vibration. If you're new and looking to try several different intensities, like to build up to stronger vibrations, or like superpowerful vibrations this may not be for you.

Care and Maintenance

This toy is very easy to take care of. If you plan on switching users this can be disinfected with a 10% bleach solution, but for daily upkeep I clean mine with an antibacterial toy cleaner, but you can just as easily use a toy wipe or soap and water. Because this toy doesn't pick up dirt or lint, you can easily get away with just rinsing this after use.

I keep mine in a cool, dark place with the rest of my toys. You can store this in contact with other toys because the material won't react with any other material and, similarly, you can use all types of lube with this toy.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

This toy comes in a small, clamshell packaging. It's completely transparent and it's not trying to fool anyone about what the use of the product is. On the front and back is a 'sexy' model wearing a shirt and a black thong. While this wouldn't be terrible to wrap and give as a gift, it isn't the classiest act either.

The packaging isn't super informative (It really only tells you that it's a waterproof vibrator and that it uses a standard battery) but it does come with instructions. The instructions seem a bit overkill for a one battery, one setting, push button vibrator but they are there if you need them.

A strange aside is that you can't store this in the package if you plan on keeping a battery in it. The packaging pushes on the power button and turns it on, and the only way to avoid this is to store it in the package sans battery. It;s just a small thing, but it may be a problem if you were A) planning to keep the battery in it or B) planning to use the package as a way to get it to NOT turn on at inopportune times.

Experience

While this toy is fairly high quality and has a really neat design, the one setting really isn't doing it for me. I personally like to build up in vibrational intensity, especially when using external toys, and this really just is too intense for me to only use it with one setting.

What I really DO appreciate about this toy is that it takes a normal battery. This is great because I don't want to have to run down to Radioshack for special batteries for my vibrators. Overall, I really like a lot of things about this toy. It's getting 3 out of 5 stars because it only has one setting, and I feel like it's too powerful for most people to just go right into using it.

    Super cute, but I wish it came in a slightly larger size and at least one more option. I wouldn't have seen this if it weren't for your review. Great job with the review even though you didn't really love it!
