When it arrived, my first impression was: Wow, this is a lot bigger than I expected it to be. But I unwrapped it immediately, fished 3 batteries out of a remote control (what? I’m used to rechargeable toys) and turned it on.
It has 3 speed settings, and 3 rotation settings: clockwise, counterclockwise, and flickering back and forth.
To use it, you have to slather it with water-based lube, because if you don’t, it’s just plain uncomfortable. In fact, you’ll find yourself reapplying as you go along. And when you’re finished, you must take it apart to clean it.
Turn Ons: The novelty of it. It feels like no other toy I’ve ever tried, and there’s always something tantalizing about the new. Don’t get me wrong: it doesn’t feel like oral sex. Not even close. But it also doesn’t feel like any of the vibrators I’ve tried before.
Turn Offs: The flicker setting is actually really unpleasant. Maybe someone else might enjoy it, but not me. The necessity of copious amounts of lube, and the time it takes for proper cleaning means that this definitely isn’t an everyday staple. And it definitely doesn’t offer a quick route to climax.
Details: Requires 3 AAA batteries
Dimensions: 4 x 6 x 2 inches

Verdict: This is a good warm-up toy. The novelty of it is enough to get the giggles going for you and your partner, and I won’t deny that it feels good on the right setting. But by itself, it’s an awful lot of effort for not a lot of payoff. Of course, if you want to try it for yourself, you can get 15% off using the code “JuniperViva” at checkout.
