Wilted with time

This started out as something I really liked and wanted to keep around for a while, but it just can't stand up to much use. The motor has gotten much louder with use several times a week for 15 minutes at the most. It is not waterproof, but if you're careful it is a bit splashproof. It's super easy to store because of the design and the smooth plastic, but I wish they had made to last a bit longer.
Smooth, plastic, pretty, easy to store, strong, versatile
Got loud over a few uses, not waterproof, may be boring

extremely useful review


This toy, while it may seem small in the picture, is more the size of a traditional vibrator than an extra-long bullet type. This means that it is great for insertion and stimulating the entrance to the vagina. I have a very easy to reach g-spot and this does well at stimulating it, but this might not ring true for everyone.

You can use this easily for stimulating the clitoris, and it is nice because you can use either the pointed tip of the broad side. You also can run this along your labia and clit length-wise, which is my favorite external use. It also is nice for teasing other erogenous zones.

This can be used to tease the outside of the anus, but you should not use this for anal penetration. It has no flared base and is pretty slippery, so this is the type of toy you hear embarrassing emergency room gossip about.

For the versatility, I think that this would be great for beginners, but if you are advanced and know that you can get off with a traditionally shaped toy, go for it! This may not be the best couples toy because you can easily be hurt with the hard tip when someone else is thrusting into you, but with a lot of communication it would be okay.

Material / Texture

Made of very smooth plastic, this is not covered by a silky or matte finish like some other toys. Plastic is rated an 8 out of 10 on the Eden Safety Scale because it is completely nonporous. This means that, unlike jelly and rubber, no bacteria hides in the materials and it can be completely cleaned by simply cleaning the surface. I wash mine with an antibacterial toy cleaner, but soap and water also work very well. You can also disinfect the plastic by wiping it down with alcohol or a 10% bleach solution.

It had no scent or taste out of the package and has retained neither. The toy itself has no texture except at the plastic base where it has ridges which allow for easy changing of the speeds. It really doesn't add much to the experience and you can't feel it moving in and out of you except where you are thrusting. It is VERY firm and no part of this toy has any give at all to it.

The plus side to it being this smooth is that outside lubrication is optional. Especially if you're using it in the shower, you really can use it 'bareback.' the down side is that is can get a bit tough to hold if you use lube because of the sleek plastic.

This material would be great for beginners, especially the lack of texture and the fact you don't need lube. Advanced users, if you know you like smooth toys, would also like this because of the ease of care. Overall, the colored plastic is about average.

Design / Shape / Size

In art schools you hear two very contradictory messages; "Less is more" and "Less is a bore." If you follow the first school of thought, the design of this toy is right up your alley! Shaped like so many toys you can find at an adult shop, this seems to be nothing special.

Well, it really isn't very unique or special, but it does what it's intended to do and it does it well! While this is a bit boring, a slightly phallic cylinder that tapers off towards the tip, it is a staple that a girl needs.

This would be better suited for advanced users because it really may be a bit bland if you've owned more than a few sex toys. With a 4.5 inch insertable length and a 3.25 inch circumference, this should be comfortable even for those that haven't had much experience sexually.

If you are looking for something to get at a hard-to-find g-spot, this may not be the ideal tool. It is straight and has no curves or hooks, so some people may not be able to get any g-spot action from it. Similarly, if you enjoy feeling 'filled' or 'stretched,' this is a bad choice. Unless you are very tight, this won't give much of a filling feeling at all.

This is not very discreet if you leave it out, but it is easy to stash somewhere in a hurry because of the material and size. It would be good for travel, especially because if it gets confiscated at the airport of broken in your luggave you didn't lose anything awesome.

Functions / Performance / Controls

At first, I was super impressed with this budget toy. It performed well, was a nice plastic, and exceeded my expectations in all aspects. Unfortunately, it has not withstood use well. With each 15 minute session this toy has become more buzzy and the noise levels have increased, to the point where it is a bit too loud to use in the public showers. It may not be able to be heard through a door, but if you have thin walls you may want to turn on the TV or music.

The vibration strength has remained consistent, thought the vibrations have become a bit more 'buzzy.' This is not as big a deal to me as the noise levels, but even for $10 I would have expected more than a few weeks before it began to wear down. They are located evenly throughout the toy, which may lead to numb fingers after prolonged use.

This has a turn-dial base that allows for the settings to be gradually increased. There is quite a sudden jump between the medium-high setting and the super-high setting, but otherwise I have no issues with it. The turn-dial base means that it is easy to turn off in a hurry and it is difficult to accidentally change the settings. The only downside to the turn-dial base is accidentally loosening the battery compartment during play, but I haven't found this to be too much of an issue.

I actually have used this in the shower and it has performed fine. I have not fully submerged it or held it upside down, but after light use in the shower I haven't found any moisture in the battery compartment. I would call this a lightly splashproof toy, but again, I did this because it would not have been a huge loss if it has shorted out.

Care and Maintenance

This is an incredibly easy to take care of toy! The smooth plastic doesn't pick up dust or lint at all, so you simply need to rinse it after use and then stash it somewhere. It can come in contact with other plastic or silicone toys because of the material, so you also can just toss this in a box with your other toys. I keep in in a cool, dark place with my other toys. You also can wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution to disinfect it, but I clean mine with an antibacterial toy cleaner. Soap and water also works great, and I can't recommend the Eden toy wipes enough!

You can use silicone, oil, or waterbased lube on this toy, so you don't have to worry about if your favorite lubricant is going to work.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


This came in a clamshell plastic container with a scantily clad woman on the front. She is wearing a feather boa so you can't see anything R-rated, but it is not the nicest looking packaging. The toy itself came in a small, sealed plastic bag with excessive instructions. In many different languages it warns against full submersion, using it on pain in your leg, not on open sores, ect. It also tells thoroughly how to put the batteries in.

I don't use this for storage because it's bulky and inconvenient, but I suppose you could. I wouldn't recommend using this box to give it in as a gift, but it really depends on the person you're giving it to. The fact that it came in a sealed plastic bad made me wonder about clamshell packaged toys at brick and mortar stores. "Here's PROOF this hasn't been used!"


This is a very basic toy that really didn't impress me much. At first I really did like it because it was so easy to use, but once it started getting louder it lost some appeal. My boyfriend likes how small it is and I would have wanted to recommend it, but after it wearing down in so short of time I really can't.

As a gag-gift or more of a disposable toy this would be awesome, but if you're looking for something to use for a long while or in a quiet place, this is not your best bet.
