Ridged for her pleasure? Yes it is!

A fantastic toy for any skill level, intensely satisfying without being high maintenance. Strong vibes and easy controls with a ridged twist on an old G-spot favoring shape!
Deeply penetrating vibrations, easy care, fun shape
Limited in it's functions, and a bit intimidating for a beginner.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Ridged softee a great all around toy, but has a particular emphasis on direct stimulation of sensitive areas. The slick body of this toy is very nice and rarely do I need to use lube with it. It's firm yet pliable and warms up quickly to skin temperature. It has three distinctly raised ridges which help keep it in place during use. I have also used this toy on sore areas and tired muscles for a fantastically deep penetrating massage!

Material / Texture

The material is a thermoplastic rubber and when I first opened the package there was a discernible scent, this went away after the first few washes and uses. The taste is actually minimal and isn't too unpleasant. But that again went away after the first few washes. The material is pliable enough to bend when it needs to be and yet rigid enough to get some serious thrusting action. The material warms quickly and retains heat for a few minutes after contact with skin. This is a great beginner's toy due to the slick smoothness and supple textures of the material and can be used with less lube than most toys I have tried.

I greatly enjoy the ridges at the bottom and with some practice it can easily be held in the body with the ridges. They are raised enough to provide grip yet smooth enough that they do not interfere with penetration.

Design / Shape / Size

The size of this toy makes it an ideal travel companion, small enough to be discreet in luggage yet large enough to be a great penetration toy.

The shape is really what keeps me coming back for more. The three ringed ridges provide fantastic stimulation with the ridges on the underside of the tip rub the g-spot perfectly. It has a nice curve that isn't too hard for a beginner to handle and makes accessing the g-spot easier than most any toy I have used. It does have a fairly wide base that may intimidate some users but provides a nice full feeling when used for penetration. A flare at the bottom keeps you from swallowing the control knob as well..

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrations on this bad boy are right in the tip making it a powerful g-spot stimulator. They cannot really be felt towards the bottom of the toy but the ridges make up for that! It goes from a fairly gentle vibration to a very intense vibration at the top of the knob. The controls as one would guess are very straight forward with the base of the toy being a knob that you twist to control level of vibrational stimulation. I have had the toy around two weeks and have used it at least once a day for fifteen to twenty minutes but sometimes as long as an hour and I am still on my first set of batteries. A lot of power for a small amount of battery!

I have used it many times in both the tub and the shower and find that just adding water to this toy makes it even more fun! It is completely submersible and the controls are easy to use even when wet. In the bath i noticed there was a bit of vibrational noise resounding in the tub but it's not terribly loud.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Long lasting power

Care and Maintenance

I love the material of this toy! It doesn't collect lint and dirt like other soft toys I own, nor is it hard to clean. A simple rinse with a mild soap and you are good to go! I have found that it works best with a water based lube as silicone tends to feel sticky when combined with the material. This is one of the few toys I feel comfortable with not using a condom with but since it is TPE it would be a good idea if one was so inclined. I keep it in a drawer with a non shedding fabric liner in it.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


Minimal packaging and no instructions but the design is straight forward so instructions are not too important but care and cleaning instructions would be nice for someone unfamiliar with the materials. this packaging would not pass par for gifting or storage. The packaging was no fuss and easy open which is very nice and doesn't have the typical half naked girls on it.

Personal comments

This toy has quickly replaced my Lucid Dreams #14 as my favorite toy, and it has been quite a learning curve with it's fantastic textures and shapes!

My experience with the3 Softee has been great and it is now the first piece I reach for when I want to play! It's easy to use in and out of the water and is a lot of fun and very different from most of my toys. it is sturdy and holding up well despite being dropped in the shower a few times and rolling under the bed last week.
Follow-up commentary
Well it's four months down the road and this vibrator is still going strong. It's a bit louder, or so it seems to me, but it's still just as good as the day it came in. The material is still in great shape and I've only used four sets of batteries in it despite it getting a lot of use! I would still highly recommend it!
