The Sorority Screw is made of silicone and plastic. There is a slight plastic smell from the packaging. The smell went away after washing it. It is in two pieces: the vibrator and a silicone sleeve. This is a good second or third toy, if you want to try something a little different from the smooth vibrators. The texture is ridged, yet soft; but this is definitely a good beginner toy if you’re just now starting to try different textures. Or, if you prefer, you can remove the sleeve and it’s a smooth vibrator. However, the vibrations are a lot more intense without the sleeve.
The Sorority Screw is five inches long, and it has a one inch girth with the sleeve on and a 3/4 inch girth with the sleeve off. The design looks exactly like that of a screw. I personally wanted to see if the threads worked and, yes, they do. I twisted counterclockwise and it went right in. I found this to be very cool. Then again, I'm easily impressed at times. Personally, I prefer something a bit bigger, on a normal basis. This toy is great for anyone who looks at it and thinks, "That looks interesting." It's very travel-friendly and will fit in any medium-sized pouch. Sorority Screw is very light and takes two AAA's.
The sleeve slips off fairly easy, so be careful if you like to clench during play. The vibrations are very powerful and are felt from top to bottom. The switch is actually a dial, and getting the right setting can be tricky since it's very sensitive. As I said earlier, this is a great toy for the shower. I'm not sure about submerging it since there is only an O-ring at the base of the screw-on cap for the batteries to keep the water out. The ring is not that thick. The Sorority Screw is very noisy. It's the loudest toy I own, and I have plenty.
The Sorority Screw is easy to clean, especially since the silicone sleeve is removable. The threads are far enough apart that you can easily slide the tip of your finger in them to clean it. The vibrator insert cleans very easily also. I use an antibacterial toy cleaner, but soap and water will work just fine, too. A water-based lube is to be used with the silicone sleeve. It can be easily stored away in a nightstand, or it is perfect for the tissue toy box, so you always have it close.
This toy comes packaged in a snap-together clear plastic package with an insert that has a cutout in the middle where the vibrator is placed. The packaging does not say that the sleeve is removable. This is something I found out from playing with it. If you're buying this as a gift, I suggest a bag or box to put it in since the packaging is not discreet at all. There were no instructions included for care or use.
