Quite the noise maker!

This toy is great for partner play and foreplay. It is also great for solo use and can be used many differnt ways. Not only can it stimulate you sexually, but you can actually use it for massage. Now, it could be stronger vibrations, but heck it's possible for massage. It is rechargeable but it is loud. So, if you are looking for something that it multifunctional and rechargeable this toy may be for you!

Use

I was so excited to receive this toy mainly because I knew it was rechargeable. This toy has many uses that you could possibly use it for, from a small body massager to a clitoral pleaser. I prefer to use it on my clit, but I am curious about the possibility of using it on your g-spot. Though it isn't made for the g-spot it is curved and could easily hit the spot if used. You can use it to stimulate your nipples, anus, clit, neck, face, or all over the body.

This toy stimulates the clitoris well on the highest setting, but watch out because it is loud! We paired this toy up with a rather large dildo and bumped up the setting strong enough to get me off, and between the two toys I was in orgasmic heaven! This is perfect for couples or solo use because it is multifunctional. You can actually use it as a soft massager as well as a sexual toy. If you are a beginner or advanced user you will enjoy this toy.

I love to use this toy solo and with my hubby. Paired up with other toys and used together with your partner can really play up the sexual aspect that this toy brings. It can also be used for "warming" up, by slowly moving over the body for nipple or body stimulation to get those juices flowing. Great for foreplay. If you decide to take it with you on a trip it can travel easy just remember to bring the charger!

Material / Texture

This toy is made out of plastic which is non porous and phthalate-free so it works well with most people. This toy is hard and non flexible which if you were going to use it on your g-spot it could be a little uncomfortable. But for using it on your body and clit it allows for the perfect amount of pressure to be applied without any give on the toy. I need to be able to apply pressure to my clit to achieve orgasm, so this is a huge plus to me. This toy has a clear plastic cover covering the toy that is non-removable. I honestly thought I was suppose to take it off before I used it, but could not figure out how to do it.

The texture of this toy is smooth and hard. It feels like any hard plastic would, and at one end has a rubber cap that goes over the ac adaptor plug. The good thing about plastic is there is no change in temperature, so it is always easy to grab and use. This texture is best for beginners or advanced users because it is a safe material and there is not much that goes into the maintenance of it.
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

This toy isn't small, but it's not huge either. It is a little longer than my hand, with the length of 9" and an insertable length of 6 3/4". It has a circumference of 4 3/4", at it's widest point, but it narrows in the middle and bulges on both ends of the toy. I liked the design because if you are going to insert it for g-spot use then the bulge at the top along with the vibrations really will help with your stimulation. The vibrations are located at the tip of the toy, so the clitoral stimulation it is perfect for pinpointing the stimulation.

It is a little awkward to hold and control the on/off buttons. But it certainly got the job done with it's functions. The size could seem big to some and small to others. It really depends on what you use this toy for. It has so many options, so for a all over body massager, it could be bigger and have better vibrations. For a clitoral stimulator it could be a little smaller, so it is easier to manipulate. For vaginal insertion it is perfect if you are a beginner, but if you like your toys more girthy, you would wish it was a little bigger, as I did.

This toy is pretty easy to hide, it will fit in a normal size side table drawer and that is where I put it. It's not a typical looking sex toy, so unless someone knows what they are looking at, most would not know exactly what they saw. Plus you can always say it is a back massager, cause you really can use it for that! As for travel, it may not fit in a purse as a discreet vibrator, but could definitely go on a vacation with you. And since it is rechargeable you don't have to worry about bring extra batteries, just don't forget the charger!

Functions / Performance / Controls

Now I liked the functions for the most part. I loved that this toy has an automatic off button. So, if you are on the middle function and you were done using the toy all you have to do is hit the off button and bam off! Not this cycling through a bunch of vibrations before you get to the off. This is especially nice if you get "caught" in the act and need a fast shut off! Another awesome feature of this toy is that it is rechargeable. Now who doesn't like a rechargeable toy? No batteries to buy or replace, the only downfall is if you forget to recharge it after it's use. It takes 12 hours to charge and has an estimated run time of about 3 hours. I have not run it completely down, but it did not let me down in the hour we were using it.

The vibrations are located at the tip of the toy, opposite of the charger port. Now, you can feel the vibrations throughout the whole toy, but they are pinpointed at the tip. It has three speeds and one pulsation. I needed the highest speed to reach orgasm with this toy. I don't really enjoy pulsation unless we are playing around and it's used for couple play.

The controls are located closest to the charger port and are somewhat difficult to manipulate while using it during either insertion or clitoral play. It is curved so you have to reach hard for the controls. Though it does have a raised bump on one button and smooth on the opposite, so it is easy to locate without looking at it. The charger is simple to insert and plug in, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out.

Watch out for the noise on this toy! The only thing that kept me from not turning this toy off was the fact I was about to reach orgasm and didn't want to have to search for a new toy! You could definitely hear this toy in another room, so as for the noise it is not discreet!

This toy is classified as splash proof, so I wouldn't submerge this toy, though you may be able to get away with taking it with you into the shower. It also makes it easier to clean not having to worry about damaging the toy.
    • Long lasting power
    • Multiple settings
    • Not discreet at all

Care and Maintenance

Because this toy is made out of plastic it makes it super easy to take care of, plus with it being splash proof there is no worrying about ruining the toy. All you need is some warm water and antibacterial soap, or you can use some rubbing alcohol or toy cleaner. As for lubes pretty much any lube works, water, oil or silicone based lubes are preferred. I store this toy on the floor right now because I plug it back in when not in use to make sure it always has a charge. It comes with a pretty purple, velvety storage bag that is perfect for storage and travel. You can use the original packaging, but is a bit bulky. Because it's plastic you don't really need to worry much about other toys interacting with the material or break down.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

This toy came in a pretty purple oval shaped plastic box. It came with a booklet of instructions that helped me out a ton. It tells you how to charge your toy, for how long, and how to turn it on and cycle through the many functions. You could possibly use this box for storage, but I prefer the bag that came with it.
    • Not discreet
    • Very informative
Follow-up commentary
I said I still don't like this toy, because I never really "liked" it, but it does get the job done. I just never reach for it. It is a loud toy and you have to make sure you gave it plenty of time to charge before use. So, if you are looking for something to just have a quickie with, this toy, if not charged, won't do it. Plus if you are looking to be quiet, you have no chance with this one. Still not one I reach for.
