Soft and Purple

Great toy for beginners to use, it is helping me to experiment with the speeds and my body. The TPR covering is soft so it feels nice, you definitely need to make sure that you use a lube with it for easier use! I used a water based lube with mine, so I would recommend that as well.
Very straightforward, easy to use - neat soft feel.
The vibrations could be a little bit stronger for me, and at high speed the toy is a bit loud.

useful review
The toy's packaging was great, easy to open - as far as instructions included, it didn't seem as if there were any included with it. It states that it has a dial base to control the speed - but it's up to you to figure out everything else. The materials that the vibrator is made of are TPR and plastic. The body of the vibrator is covered with a TPR sleeve that can be removed, with a plastic body underneath. The base of the vibrator is also made of plastic and has a dial base on the very end of it to control the speed of the vibrations. It is equipped with three speeds: low, medium, and high. All speeds worked correctly for me when I tested the product after opening, so I had no problem. The vibrator takes 2 AAA batteries and in the product I received, it had paper inserts lining the inside where you would insert the batteries. I did not remove the paper from mine, I was told at a toy store that helps to quiet down the vibrator. The length of the toy is about 6 1/2 inches including the base of the vibrator with a diameter of 1”. The base of the vibrator is not flared in anyway, so be sure to take care when using it.

The material feels great, it’s soft and squishy and the vibrator is still very light – not heavy at all! I didn’t notice any smell coming from the toy when I opened the box, but at closer inspection I did notice a bit of an odor. The vibrator has a slightly bent tip and has a ribbed texture over the tip end of it. I would say that the texture and size is suitable for beginners looking to try something different or even an insert-able vibrator all together. This was actually my first insert-able toy that I have used, I have only delved into the world of clitoral vibrators – so this was a completely new experience for me. The motor looks as if it is located in the very top of the toy and it's where I notice the vibrations originating from. To me, the toy does not seem very noisy except on the highest setting. I'm comparing it to the clitoral vibrator that I had used in the past which was very loud in my opinion. So to me, this does not seem as noisy - although I have not experienced a vibrator that is extremely quiet yet.

The toy is waterproof, which is something I need because I live with other people and I do not want them to be able to hear my vibrator through the walls or the doors so I usually take mine into the shower with me. The vibrator is not very discreet though, and not good for travel so I have to hide it when I am taking it into the bathroom with me just in case. As far as care of the toy, I used mild soap and warm water to clean mine because I don't have any toy cleaner yet. Which works for me, although I read that TPR is porous and can not be sterilized so it is recommended that you use a condom when sharing toys made of this material. I store this toy in my partner and my toy chest wrapped in a plastic baggie. As far as storage knowledge, I'm still new to - so I need to research it a little more. As far as lubes - I used a water based lube along with this toy.
As far as personal experience with it, I'll probably have to try it out a little bit more and then write a follow up review after I have played with it more. When it comes to taking the soft covering off, I haven't been able to successfully do that yet. I am also afraid that when I do get the cover off of the base that I won't be able to get it back on. The first time I used the toy, I let my partner play with me. As I stated, this is my first insert-able vibrator - so we used it without the vibrations at first. I really like it, the toy itself feels great - but the only thing is that I can't seem to get it to give a lot of stimulation to my G-spot. So I don't know yet if it's me or the toy. I can feel a little stimulation to my G-spot but not much. The second time we used it with the vibrations and it felt pretty nice. I just feel like in the vibration department, it needs a little bit more for me to really enjoy it. The third time I used it, was in the shower and I used it to stimulate my clit as well as an insert-able vibrator and as a clitoral stimulator it's decent. Somehow I feel that the soft outer covering muffles the vibrations a little, but that might just be me.

I do feel that this vibrator is a good one for beginners and to help them experiment with the speeds and types of vibrators (because you are able to switch between the soft covering and the plastic). The dial base is straightforward and easy to use as well. As far as the noise level, to me it wasn't that noisy on the lower speeds, just the high speed was quite noisy. I'm glad that it was my first insert-able vibrator because it will definitely help me to choose what to move on to and what I might want to try out next.
Follow-up commentary
Right now, I still feel the same way. I managed to get the jelly sleeve off of the plastic toy underneath but it was hard to get off. I tried using the toy without the jelly sleeve but it still didn't do a whole lot for me. It may be because of where the motor is located in the toy or maybe it's just not strong enough for me. I'll keep experimenting with it though.

    Thanks for a good review. Smile The only thing I'd want to see with this review is possibly some detailed explanation about what the texture *is* on this toy. I can see some striped texture at the tip from the pictures, but not much else. Smile
  • seaofneptune
    Oh, I meant to included that - I'm sorry! The very tip of the toy has a ribbed texture and the middle has larger ribs that are almost like waves.
  • Airen Wolf
    Good to hear all the speeds worked for you...mine only had what I assume is top speed! Still I do like the little thing.

    Great review, Thanks!
