Roulette Straight up - traditional vibrator by Evolved Novelties - review by LuLu Love

Straight Up, This is Awesome!

The Straight Up is powerful, quiet, and stylish. It is incredibly well designed and will bring you back to Evolved for more.
High quality, quiet, powerful.
The metal hinges broke the cover on the box.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Straight Up is a high quality, easy-to-use, traditional vibrator. It is designed for use both vaginally and clitorally. The shaft of the toy is very textured and is covered with ripples and nubs. It is probably best to have some prior experience with a textured toy because of the pronounced definition on the Straight Up. Following in the theme of high quality design, the Straight Up features a powerful but quiet motor. For this reason it is perfect for those who require more discretion in regards to noise.

Material / Texture

The Straight Up is molded out of pure, non-porous, hypo-allergenic silicone that can be disinfected in boiling water.

The shaft of the toy is highly textured with random patterns of nubs and ripples. Because of the texture it may not be perfect for those you are beginners to texture. However, as textured as it is I found it to be very comfortable and would recommend not shying away from this aspect of the toy.

The shaft of the Straight Up is surprisingly flexible and pleasantly squishy. Being a traditional vibrator does not stop this toy from being capable of g-spot stimulation. Its flexibility allows the user to bend the Straight Up to provide stimulation wherever it’s needed. Although this toy is girthy, the properties of the material make it much more comfortable to take. This is especially true for those new to this size.

Unfortunately when it first arrived the toy gave off a slight odor when examined closely. After using it for a couple of weeks the smell has completely disappeared.

Design / Shape / Size

The pleasantly purple Straight Up is well designed and manufactured; it both looks and feels durable. The overall length of the toy is 8.25” with an insertable length of 5”. At its largest, the Straight Up measures 5.25” around. For me this should be too large of a toy but again it was thoughtfully designed. The toy features a taper that gradually builds up to the full circumference. As with the texture, don’t look past this toy simply because of its size.

It seems like the vibrator is located in the upper half of the shaft because the vibrations are very intense at the tip. However, the vibrations flow well through material and are felt throughout. The intense and focused vibrations are fantastic for those who enjoy strong clitoral stimulation.

The portion of the Straight Up that houses the controls is very unique. Instead of traditional push buttons, this toy features an easy to use rotating wheel to control vibration speeds. Also the shape of the control portion is designed in a way to make it easy to grip and maneuver.

The Straight Up is by no means discreet in any way other than noise. Obviously it looks very much like a vibrator.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Straight Up could not be simpler to use. It features a wheel with prominent ridges that effortlessly rotates. As the user moves the control wheel, the deep vibrations smoothly escalate. Although the lowest setting is concentrated almost solely in the tip, as the vibrations increase they spread throughout the shaft. To turn the toy back off simply rotate back the way you came and it clicks into the off position.

There are no preset patterns or fancy LED lights with this toy.

I found that when upside down and on the high the toy can become fairly loud. This situation may be encountered during clitoral stimulation. When pointing up or inserted, the Straight Up is virtually silent.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

The Straight Up requires two AA batteries. The twist off cap is another very well designed aspect of this toy; a simple counter-clockwise twist pops it off. The positive and negative sides are clearly labeled to minimize any confusion. To close it again, twist to the right and make sure the cap is on secure. This is a waterproof toy that can easily be de-waterproofed if the cap isn’t all the way on.

To clean and disinfect this toy, wash it with soap and hot water or place it in the top rack of the dishwasher. Be sure to remove the batteries beforehand and close it tightly.

As amazing as silicone is, it does need to be protected. Don’t store it with other silicone toys. Don’t use anything but water based lubes. It’s probably best to keep it safe and secure in its included plastic box.
    • Easy to clean


The Straight Up comes in a pretty plastic box with metal clips that can be use for storage.
    • Good for storage

    Y'know, I still don't have one of the "squishier" Evolved vibes. I've only got the hard plastic ones. I should remedy that! Great review.
  • ~LaUr3n~
    I have like 4-5 of the new ones and I had the same problem with the metal box closure on about half.
  • LuLu Love
    Cynthia...go for these vibes. I am very impressed with them.
    Lauren...I was upset when I realized my box cracked. It was so unique and pretty and I really don't have any other storage options. Can't wait till I can splurge on a toibocks!

    Great review!
  • PassionQT
    I have the Croupier and wondered if any of the other in the roulette line are stronger?
  • LuLu Love
    I enjoyed the strength of this toy but ii wouldn't say its extremely powerful. The best part is the quality of the vibrations; instead of being buzzy they are deep and throbbing. Its my favorite toy for clitoral stimulation!
