I'll start by saying that my wife liked this toy, however, she the biggest fan of vibrators. The size was definitely a bit of an intimidating factor for her as she is new to the toy scene. Eventually I was able to coax her into using it, and while she liked it, she had to switch to her glass toy to finish the job. The toy itself is waterproof, so I decided to check that out, dropped it in the tub with it on- and it worked well before, in the water, and after. The gyrating action was pretty interesting, she did say that it was definitely a unique feeling. As promised, the toy is 'whisper quiet.' No complaints there. The coating on the toy itself is silky smooth. Overall, this toy wasn't for us, however- it still gets 5 stars because it hits all the check marks for a great toy. You won't be displeased with this toy if you're into the stronger vibrators.
