Two Thumbs Down

In the immortal words of Men on Film - Hated it! The weak vibrations and completely flat tip on the vibrator made orgasming virtually impossible for my intensity threshold. There are better, comparable priced selections out there!

Weak Vibrations, High maintenance
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


Both the sleeve and vibrator are designed to be used in the bath or shower or any where else you can imagine. A silicone gasket seals any gaps between the cap and the toy itself making the battery compartment 100% waterproof. Pipedream has included a warning that this toy not be used internally. For once when it comes to warnings of this nature, I am in agreement. If you do wish to penetrate with this toy please use a condom, especially if you are sensitive to rubber components in toys. The vibe itself, without the sleeve, can be used internally with no issues.

The Waterproof silicone will be a great toy for a beginner or someone looking to do a wee bit of vaginal stretching as the girth is rather impressive for a vibrator of this style. Advanced users will probably want to pass this one up. The vibrations are simply not strong enough to orgasm with if you have a high orgasmic threshold, as I do. It is great for nipple play or to outline your lover's body with!

Material / Texture

The sleeve is a TPR silicone which is a compound of rubber and silicone. I received the pink sleeve instead of the clear sleeve for this assignment. I am wondering if the color has anything to do with the reaction I had when I touched the sleeve to my tongue. Immediately, there was a tingling sensation somewhat similar to accidentally eating the skin of kiwi fruit. It lasted for several minutes. My husband had the same reaction.

The sleeve itself is textured to look and feel like a real cock would, with ridges and veins. I would say the design itself is middle of the road as far as the level of the user is concerned. The shape, length and girth would be great for beginners or advanced users for penetration. It's the vibration that fails in this toy as it simply isn't strong enough for those with a high orgasmic threshold. I would definitely prefer a 100% silicone sleeve instead of a rubber/silicone compound.

There is a very faint odor that seemed to subside after washing the toy a couple of times. Remember to remove the sleeve before you clean this toy or you will have water trapped between the sleeve and the vibe.

Design / Shape / Size

The Waterproof silicone vibrator has two parts; the silicone sleeve and a traditional silver vibe. The silicone sleeve is shaped to mimic Mother Nature's design of a cock. The tip of the silicone sleeve gives just like the head of a real cock would when squeezed. The vibrator is rigid and when inside the sleeve gives the appearance and feel of a raging hard-on!

The vibration control is a typical turn dial operation; it does have multiple speeds, to increase just simply twist the dial at the base. The vibrations are weak and after some time giving it the old college try on my clit, this toy has been relegated to the "toys we will never use box". The vibrations did feel good on my nipples, however.

It is approximately 7.5" in length with the sleeve, not including the base. With the sleeve, the circumference is almost 4". Removing the sleeve decreases the girth by an inch. Surprisingly, the toy is significantly lighter than I initially thought it would be, which is great considering how long you'll be holding it while waiting to achieve orgasm. It is not discreet, but will easily fit into a toy box or nightstand, even in it's original packaging.

This toy is designed to be used in the shower, bath, jacuzzi or anywhere else you can imagine. I do not recommend this toy for advanced users. It would be a good toy for someone who does not have problems using condoms and wants something a little bigger than your traditional slim vibrator. The silicone sleeve does give it a very realistic look and feel.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrator is quite weak compared to bullets. For all of the noise it makes, I was looking forward to some VA-VA-ROOM. The vibrations are equally distributed from base to tip and there is a turn dial at the base to increase/decrease intensity. The sleeve weakens the already less than intense vibrations.

The vibrator itself has a silicone ring preventing water from seeping into the battery case making it 100% waterproof. I found no difficulty in securing the cap properly. However, water and lubricants are trapped between the sleeve and the vibrator itself making it difficult to remove the sleeve. The two should be separately dried off after use.

Overall, there is nothing overtly complicated about this toy but remembering to clean it properly might be a problem.
    • Multiple settings
    • Not discreet at all
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

This toy should be washed with a mild antibacterial soap or toy cleaner before and after use. It does not pick up much lint or dust from just lying about.

Remove the sleeve, washing both the inside and out as lubricant and natural juices can collect between the sleeve and the vibrator itself. Air dry the sleeve separately or turn inside out and wipe down with a paper towel to dry.

I highly recommend using condoms with this toy if you are sensitive to rubber.

Water based lubricants only, please!

I highly recommend storing this toy in it's original clamshell packaging as it may react poorly to being stored with other rubber toys. I'm probably a little paranoid when it comes to this as I have lost a few toys due to discoloration or improper storage. Better safe than sorry!

Personal comments

Wherever and however you decide to use this toy, I recommend using a condom.


We were so excited when this toy arrived! For the first few minutes my husband and I inspected it and played around with the head of the toy thinking about and discussing how good it would feel. As I do with all of my toys after cleaning, I touched the head to my tongue only to discover an unpleasant tingling sensation. I passed it to my husband and requested he do the same and he had the same reaction. I rubbed it across my nipples and decided that felt pleasurable enough and turned the vibrator on and was happy to have it feel just as good. Placing it on my clit, I was not amused. Weak, weak, weak! And for 2 AAs, definitely not impressed. We tried for just under an hour for me to orgasm using this toy with nothing to show for our troubles. I ended up setting it aside and bringing out the bullet we own. I was off in three minutes!

Removing the sleeve is the most difficult part of this toy. It took both my husband and I, him on one end and me on the other, to peel it off. I can see a fingernail or two being lost in that endeavor.

After struggling to remove the sleeve, the water between the sleeve issue and the tingling sensation we literally threw the sleeve out, never to be seen again.

This vibrator sits in Discarded Toyland, and will probably never see the light of day again.
Follow-up commentary
I still hate it and have shipped it off to a friend to see if she likes it. Still a shame as it really does look like a lot of fun.

    Sorry it didn't work out for you! Thanks for the review

    Sarah: Thank you! I appreciate all of your help.

    Airen: It positively was, I cannot wait to review a different product that we tried last night, but I might save that one for after I've graduated class.

    I have to admit it was difficult to write this review with any kind of positivity when I was so horribly disappointed with it overall. I guess, unbeknownst to me, I fall into the advanced toy user category even though my collection pales in comparison to others on the community. But, we're working on it!

    Yikes! I'd be very worried about a toy that did that to my tongue.

    I wish companies wouldn't call silicone mixes silicone. They're not, and it is kind of cheating.

    Good review.
