Upon opening the packaging I was quite excited just by seeing the smoothness of the material before even opening the package. Very seamless, smooth and the color very female friendly. (I received a medium pink colored one). When I opened the packaging, and it fell out, the soft and smoothness was just as I expected. Soft, smooth, and silky, if you will. I inspected the pushing of the buttons which does take a bit of a touch, but I saw this as a good thing. Im not a fan of buttons and switches that can easily be changed in the heat of the moment.
The ergonomics of holding the vibe, seemed very nice as I have small hands and it felt perfect. The little 'fingers' or nubs on the tip are soft, and not too stiff, I also saw this as a definite plus. Almost Koosh ball soft, but not long. The center nub is a little stiffer than the ones surrounding it but not hard. I was very excited to not smell a funky smell as most soft silicone toys have. I was beyond impressed with the vibe not having any stickiness or roughness whatsoever to it.
It is advertised that this vibe is waterproof, so I was very nervous when I took the battery cover off to see where the 2 'AAA' batteries went. The cover clicks off and on quite well on the underside bottom of the toy. It virtually popped right out and was easily removable.
The waterproofing gasket on the battery door itself appears to be sealed on to the underside of the battery connector itself. I saw zero fears in this truly being waterproof and was getting more and more excited! Popping in the batteries was very easy and when I slid the battery door back on, I noticed something I like a lot other than the overall feminine look and feel of the vibe - a perfect fit sliding notch to not offset the cover. INGENIUS!
I clicked the power button on and the vibes this little baby put out were strong, but not overwhelming.
As advertised, this toy has 7 different vibration settings.
The continuous vibrations which is clicks 1 being powering on, 2 is medium, and 3 is the highest, isn't very loud. Nowhere near as loud as some of my other toys which are their own vibrating music box. Click 4 is like an idling car engine, starting very low and working itself up to its highest. (very much looking forward to this one!) Click 5 is a pulsating vibration on high. Click 6 is a very fast and high pulsating vibration. Click 7 starts out with a very fast pulsating on high and then switches up to a constant high vibration before starting over again. Aesthetically, this toy is just as pretty as it portrays as pleasing.
Now, on to the good stuff!! I've played with a few different times before deciding which I liked best. My guy figured out that placing it in on my clit while riding him turned out to be phenomenal for me. It didn't take long at all before I saw the golden edge and at one last second and thrust, I was over it and I crashed. A few days later I tried it in the shower, and oh boy! That was a wonderful decision! The softness of the silicone material and ergonomic handle made it so easy to hold and didn't slip out of my hands. The hot water coupled with the low setting of the vibe on my nipples was amazing.
Overall, I think this toy is absolutely fabulous! It would be stellar for beginners all the way up to extremely experienced users! I am VERY much looking forward to this little bad boy for the future!!
