This Virgo certainly isn't shy!

Being that I am a Virgo, I was especially drawn to this Virgo Astrovibe. Especially for $10.50, marked down from $34.99! AND being pure silicone! The price would appeal to the frugal nature of any fellow Virgo, and the silicone is easy to clean (and we are so often pegged as clean-freaks)! I had to get it before it was discontinued, especially with a sale like this - saving more than I spend!

Use

I think this would be a nice toy for a beginner, but I think it would be a nice addition to any experienced vibrator-user's collection. The design is very basic, with a knob to change the settings from low to high. It is great for clitoral stimulation (which is the main thing I use vibrators for), and I think this would make a great g-spot stimulator, as it is firm but flexible. It is non-porous, which is wonderful. Definitely great for solo use, wonderful for couples. I would imagine using this with some oral stimulation would be amazing.

Material / Texture

When I took this out of the package I noticed that it had no odor at all, which is nice. The texture is smooth, not sticky like silicone can sometimes feel. Though, when I took it out of the package it did fall on the floor, picking up a bit of dust, but what silicone toy doesn't? In terms of silicone, I really like the texture of this toy. It is not sticky to the touch at all. It is very smooth and has a really lovely texture, better than any of my other silicone toys. Stickier silicone toys can sometimes feel like they are snagging if not used with enough lube, because of their texture, but I don't think that is a problem with the texture of this one.

    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

This toy has sort of a light green, spearmint color, it looks a bit more blue in the product pics. This is not at all realistic in shape, definitely more of an artistic form. The product pics on EF don't really show the back of it, but there is the outline of a woman's bum on the backside. This toy looks to me like a cloaked woman, her face and breasts peaking out on the front side, and the outline of her bum on the back. I've tried to include photos from all sides, so you can see for yourself:

Front:
Side:
Back:

Also, the tip has a crease down the middle which could provide for added stimulation for some users.

I think the size is very reasonable, very "average" sized, and would probably be satisfactory for most users. If you really like long or girthy toys, then you might not be as interested in this one.
The measurements on this toy:
Length: 7"
Insertable length: 6 1/4"
Circumference: 4 3/4"
Diameter: 1 5/8"
    • Beginner
    • Partner play
    • Whimsical / artistic

Functions / Performance / Controls

At first, it was difficult for me to figure out how to put in the batteries. There is no "-/+" instructions with the toy or located in the battery compartment. It takes 2 AA batteries, which is great because those are easy to come by. Once I put them in correctly, I was happy with the vibrations that I feel when I turned the dial to test it. The vibrations can be felt strongly throughout the toy, which is a plus. There is a dial at the base that turns the vibrations on and from low to high. There is no variation in the vibration settings, it just has a steady vibration that can be turned up or down using the dial. It is definitely easy to use, and I think the little booklet it comes with that shows a ton of other FunFactory toys says something about turning the dial for vibrations. This toy is not waterproof, so no shower play!
    • Easy to use
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

I love, love, love that this fits in my Eden storage pouch! I've finally found a toy that fits in it nicely, so I will certainly be keeping my Virgo vibe in that.
Because the dial is plastic and not silicone I would not boil this toy. However, since it is silicone, it is non-porous and easy to clean. It can be cleaned with hot water and soap, toy cleaners, etc. Not very high-maintenance. Just make sure when you clean it that you clean the dial well! Sometimes people don't always take care to clean the dial really well. Stuff can get in those nooks and give you an infection, and even if it doesn't it's not sanitary at all to leave the buttons/knobs on your toys dirty.

Packaging

I actually really like the packaging of this toy. It's interesting and different from other toys I've had, and it is informative. Another plus is that the info is not only in English! all of the info is repeated on the package in French, Spanish and German.




I really like how the back part folds out on both sides, and is kept shut with a magnetic closure.




There is information on both sides of both flaps that fold out.



Also, because of the inner clear plastic that it is held in within the box, you can see both the front and back of the vibe while it is still in the box. This box could certainly be used to store the toy, though I was so excited when I realized this would fit in my Eden pouch! I have been cleaning out my collection to get rid of all of my non-silicone toys, as I believed them to be causing me infections - not fun! Previously, I had tried to store any of my toys in this pouch but they would not fit, and this fits perfectly, with room to spare! I am delighted!
    • Good for storage
    • Recyclable
    • Very informative

Personal comments

I would give this toy 5 stars if it were more quiet. It's not super loud, but I like to know that it can't be heard under the covers, and therefore cannot be heard outside my room. Also, "travel-friendly" would depend on if you consider being able to keep it in an Eden pouch travel friendly. Just make sure to take out the batteries before you go out with it...I've made that mistake!

Experience

I had a very nice first experience with this toy. I tried it out quickly as a clitoral vibe, and I was not disappointed. I noticed that the vibrations were a bit loud, I tried to muffle them with a blanket, but was worried that they could still be heard just outside my door. If you turn on some music, not terribly loud, I don't think the noise would be a problem. Within maybe 3 minutes of testing this out as a clit vibe, I had an orgasm. I prefer clitoral stimulation, but this is great for insertion too. I don't use anal toys, but I would not suggest this toy for anal play as it has no base so that would not be safe.
Follow-up commentary
I still like this vibe, BUT I do have one big issue with it! I noticed upon it's second use that there is an issue with the dial. There is still some room for it to turn after being turned to the strongest vibrations. The issue with this is that it doesn't keep vibrating, it turns off! I have a big issue with this being that I use this while laying on my stomach, so the dial can be turned the slightest bit from rubbing against the sheets and then it shuts off completely and I have to turn it back. It can be frustrating. I have considered trying to contacting the company about this issue to see if maybe they could replace it, or if it is an issue with all of them and not just mine, but since I went through my toys and got rid of all of the non-silicone toys I am worried I would be left without a vibrator for a while. Other than that one thing, I still like this toy very much! It is great for clitoral stimulation. I'm glad I got it when I did, since it was on sale.

    As a Virgo, I've been wondering about this toy. For the price I guess you can't beat it! Thanks for all the info and pictures!

    Great review and nice pictures! definitely interested in toy since the sale is super good!
  • Jimbo Jones
    So mostly for clitoral stimulation, does the edges of the inlaid portion add any texture there or for thrusting, or is the smooth side what you enjoy? Thanks for the great review.
  • mpfm
    Thanks for the review. What a bargain that was.
  • mistressg
    Jimbo Jones, I've only used it once but so far the I would say the top part with the inlay.

    Wow this is a great review! I love the use of your pictures also! I was always interested in this line of vibes and really wanted to try one for the price. But unfortunately I never did see a Sagittarius version I may have over-looked it. I'm glad you enjoyed this one a lot and I think your review on it is really great. Thank you!
