Vibrator

Jopen Vanity Vr10.5

Jopen has an addition to their Vanity line, the 0.5 models. The models are 4.5, 5.5, 6.5 and the 10.5. The 10.5, also called the Snow Bunny, comes in a beautifully vibrant purple color. For the first part of my review, I am going to get the specs out of the way.

    •  5.25” x 1.5”/13.25 cm x 3.75 cm (massager)
    • 2.75” x 1.25”/7 cm x 3.25 cm (stimulator)
    • 8.5” x 2.5”/21.5 cm x 6.25 cm (overall)
    • rechargeable and has a complete charge in 4 hours
    • covered in premium silicone that maintains and retains body heat
    • unscented, non-porous, hypoallergenic
    • whisper quiet
    • instant on/off button
    • travel lock
    • dual motors
    • water resistant
    • powered by PowerBullet technology
    • LED Charging and power lights
    • Recharging station
    • One year warranty plus optional 10 year replacement guarantee
The Snow Bunny is made of silicone (body), ABS with PU Cote (base) and silver plating (accents). You should wash this thoroughly before and after each use. Soap and water will do the job, just be sure not to submerge it. To give it a thorough cleaning, try a 10% bleach solution. You should always use water based lube with the Vr 10.5.
Looking at this vibe, just screams luxury to me. The color is bright, vibrant and very pleasing to the eyes. The material is velvety smooth and had very little drag. It has 2 motors, 1 in the shaft and 1 in the clitoral arm. The motor in the shaft makes the shaft gyrate. Both motors have 5 distinct speeds and can be used on whatever level works best for you.  I found that I liked both motors to be on level 5. The motors were very quiet and couldn’t be heard through a closed door. The button closest to the bottom of the vibe, controls the clitoral arm and the other button controls the shaft.
I have used other rabbit vibes before, but never have I had an experience like I had with the Snow Bunny. I don’t recall ever coming to orgasm as fast as I did with this one.  This has very strong, rumbly vibrations. Other than how great this vibe was to use, all of the Vanity line comes with a storage bag that can easily hold the vibe, cradle and charging cord. This is one toy that won’t be far from my bed for a long time to come, if ever. It is one of the top toys that I have tried and I will definitely be looking at more of the Vanity line in the future.
Pros:
  • rechargeable
  • beautiful color and design
  • fits my anatomy
  • strong vibrations
  • travel lock
  • silicone
  • easy to use
  • easy to clean
Cons:
  • only water resistant instead of waterproof
  • is there such a thing as too many orgasms?
  • may not fit everyone’s anatomy
I am rating this 5 out of 5 stars. It is everything that I have wanted in a rabbit vibe.
 Thanks go out to Jopen for providing this toy for me to review.

Jopen Vanity Vr6.5

To begin this review I must say that although I had heard many good things about Jopen products, themselves, I had stayed away simply because they were out of my price range.  I guess that is not necessarily true, they weren’t out of my price range, but I was very hesitant to spend that type of money on a toy that I wasn’t entirely sure would fit my anatomy. It is very hard to justify the price, I would be spending when I have heard so many say that it wasn’t right for them.

While researching the toy that I was to review I found out some interesting facts about Jopen that I had never heard before. Jopen is a maker of luxury sex toys, with a product development team that is all women. It also has one of the best warranties in the business, although this wasn’t news to me since I had heard from other users about the awesome warranty.

Jopen toys are covered 100% in silicone. I must admit that all of my favorite toys are made from silicone. I prefer how it feels to everything else that I have tried. The Jopen Vanity Vr6.5 is part of a newly released 0.5 version of previous toys. The 0.5s come in the Vr10.5, Vr6.5, Vr 5.5 and the Vr4.5.

The 6.5 is a beautiful magenta, that is very pleasing to look at. The Vr6.5 is rechargeable. Inside the box you will receive; the Vr6.5, a charger, your instruction/ warranty information, as well as a rather large storage bag. It is a rabbit vibrator that has a vibrating “rabbit” arm and a vibrating shaft. When looking at online pictures of this toy, I thought it was bigger than it actually is. It is the length of my hand and fits very comfortably in my palm. The rabbit arm is slightly thicker than my thumb and the shaft itself is about 1 1/2 times thicker than the rabbit arm. The rabbit arm is very easy to maneuver, so that you can situate it where it is most comfortable for your body.

The Vr6.5 should be charged for 4 hours before using to ensure that it has a full charge. You will know it is done charging when the red light goes off. Before you even think about using this toy, most everyone knows that you should wash it well. I used antibacterial soap with warm water. Normally, I would let a toy air dry, but my precious Vr6.5 is a huge lint magnet when left out in the open. You can use toys wipes or toy cleaners. If you want to sterilize it, use a 10% bleach solution. If you need to use lube, use only water based lube. If this toy is going to be shared, make sure to use condoms.

The Jopen line is powered by Power Bullet technology. The controls are located on the front of the toy,with the charging port on the back of the toy. You will notice that this toy has 2 buttons. One button for the shaft and another button for the rabbit arm. To turn it on press one or both buttons. To increase the vibrations, press and hold the same buttons. To turn it off, press the buttons completely down and release.  I was surprised at how low the sound was. Even with both parts vibrating at their highest level, it is whisper quiet. The only time this toy sounded louder was when I placed it on my bed while the motors were running.

It took me a bit to get used to this toy and I am by no means done with it, but I am still experimenting with the way that suits me best. As of this moment, I don’t think that this toy alone will enable me to orgasm. It is however, a lot of fun to try. While the toy is 6 1/2 inches long, only 4 1/2 inches of that is insertable.

Pros:

  • rechargeable
  • comes with  a storage bag
  • 100% Silicone body
  • Waterproof and Whisper quiet
  • Security travel lock
  • One year warranty plus optional 10 year replacement guarantee

 

Cons:

  • may not fit everyone’s anatomy
  • lint magnet
  • only comes in one color
  • price
  • not discreet

While I did add the price as a con, the Vr6.5 is well worth it, at least in my opinion. It is very easy to give this wonderful toy 5 stars. I should say I didn’t GIVE this toy 5 stars, it EARNED every one of those stars. I have no doubt that I will be buying other Jopen toys in the future. I could probably go on and on about the different things that I liked about this toy, but let me just say this, I believe there is a Jopen toy for everyone. There is so much variety with the Jopen line, I would be shocked if anyone couldn’t find at least one toy to make them happy.

The Jopen Vanity Vr6.5 was provided free of charge from SinFreeToys in exchange for an honest review.

Jopen Intensity

I’m sure you know how bad I wanted this thing! I wrote about it so many times! I was approved by Jopen to review it and I was ecstatic! The time it took from when they approved me, to when it was delivered seemed like months! It was only about 2 weeks though.The Intensity was originally created to improve elasticity in the vagina, but during testing, they found that not only did it automatically create kegels, but many of the women testing it, stated that they had intense orgasms that seemed to never end.

After having children, I am not the tightest woman in the world, and I always forget to do my kegels. I have tried Ben Wa Balls and tightening creams, nothing seemed to work. As soon as I heard about the Jopen Intensity, I KNEW I had to make it mine! I really didn’t even care if it didn’t give me the intense orgasms that I heard so many other people talking about, I just wanted to tighten up a bit. From what I have read, many women started noticing huge differences at about 2 weeks of use. And so my trials began.

Day 1 – I lubed it up with the accompanying electrogel, inserted it and started pumping to inflate it a little bit. Then I turned on the electricity. I have read reviews from women, stating that they couldn’t make it past the 4th or 5th level (there are 10 levels of intensity), so I was a bit nervous and started out on level one. I didn’t feel anything, so I bumped it up a notch….nothing on level 2, let’s move to level 3, it must be getting close to the breaking point. NOPE, nothing on level three….this continued all the way through level 10. I FELT NOTHING! So, being very confused, I decided to remove it and test it on my hand, because, well….it MUST be broken! OH NO! I felt it on my hand! Level 3 on my hand was agony! So, then I figured that maybe I just was looser than I thought or something and decided that I would feel something in a few days.

That was the morning of day 1, and I used it for about 30 minutes. I figured that I would use it before bed as well, but try the vibrations with it as well, to see if I would get those intense orgasms. No luck, so I turned the vibration back off and then was going to wait for the 30 minutes to end. Instead, I fell asleep, with it on level 10! I ended up using it for about an hour and a half that night. I woke up when I went to roll over and felt it between my legs. o.O

I was very confused by the fact that I couldn’t feel it inside of me, so I put my finger in next to the Intensity, and I did feel contractions, so it WAS doing what it should have, I just got no sensation out of it.

So, I continued using the Jopen Intensity each day and night for at least 30 minutes (and yes, I fell asleep a few more times) for 2 weeks. Master is completely honest with me, so I knew he wouldn’t lie if I asked him if I felt tighter to him or not. The answer? No. He didn’t notice any difference, and neither did I.

Day and night for a full month, and STILL no change in tightness, no orgasms, nothing! I don’t know….I was so hyped by this toy, that I was crushed when all this time had gone by, with no results.

I decided that I wasn’t going to waste any more of my time on this toy, so a month was all I gave it. Other women reported results in 2 weeks, so I gave it enough of my time, and it let me down.

The outer layer of this toy is a soft silicone, which is body safe. There is no texture to the material. The shaft and rabbit are made of silicone, the handle is made with ABS plastic with a silicone coating, the electro-ads are made of stainless steel, and the inflation release button and battery cap are made of ABS plastic. There is no odor to any part of this toy.

The Jopen Intensity is about 12″ long with 5″ of that insertable. It is a “rabbit” style, so it has a vibrating “finger” on it that is about 2.5″ long and overlaps the shaft by about 2″. In this same are on the shaft, you will find a second vibrator for internal stimulation, should you wish to turn the vibrations on. At about 2.5″ from the base of the shaft, you will find a 1.75″ electro-plate on each side. Deflated, the shaft is 4.5″ around, but it inflates to about 6″.

The handle of the toy has 5 buttons on it, the top one, in the center, is the power button. Once that is on, the others will work properly. Looking at the picture above, the top button on the left, is the electro-shock “Down” and “Off” button when you are scrolling through intensity levels. The one right below it is the “Up” button, for higher intensities. It also functions as the “On” button for the electricity. The first time you push it, it glows red, the second time, it pulses red. Odd numbered levels are a red light, Even numbered levels pulse a red light. The same goes for the right side of the toy; the top button is the “Down” and “Off” button, and the bottom button is the “On” and “Up” button, remember that these controls are going to be facing the other direction while you are using it, so they make more sense when you look at it that way. There are 5 different vibration intensities, with the strongest one being ALMOST as strong as a Pocket Rocket….yea, they are not very strong. On top of that…it was pretty loud.

When this toy is on it’s side, all I can think about is the fact that it looks like a man, about to take a bite of his sandwich….maybe I’m twisted?

The “butt” of this “man” is where you squeeze to inflate the shaft. To deflate it, you push the black button on “his” back.

On the bottom (in the “man’s crotch, if you will) there is a screw cap to hold the batteries in. And right above that is a little hole, where the air is let in and out of the shaft.

The Jopen Intensity takes 3 AAA batteries, and is NOT waterproof. The “Rabbit” on this toy has 2 “fingers” and a “thumb”, with two of them on the topside and the thumb on the bottom.

The section where the handle connects to the shaft is not seamless, which honestly worries me that liquids can get trapped in there, since you can’t really clean inside the groove. Which brings me to cleaning this toy. It is NOT easy to clean. This is because of the ridges in the shaft. You need to inflate it to make cleaning easier, and you have to pay close attention to all the little nooks and crannys. I used toy wipes, and had to wrap them around my nail to get into the smaller spots on this toy. You could also use your favorite toy cleaner or a 10% Bleach Solution, since it is silicone. However, you do not want to boil this or put it in your dishwasher, or submerge it in any sort of liquid, or your $250 toy will be dead…remember, it is NOT waterproof.

Before I start, I want to mention the fact that I got my Intensity directly from Jopen.

Honestly, I don’t care about packages being discreet, but I know MANY people do, so I need to point out that the box this arrived in, VERY CLEARLY stated “Jopen Intensity” on 3 sides of the box! So, I don’t recommend ordering directly from Jopen if this is an issue for you. Grab it from a retail store for a more discreet option.

Want to know the kicker? The 2oz tube of electrogel that comes with it, can not be bought separately! They don’t sell refills! You can, however, get a 4oz tube from Fetish Fantasies for about $9.99.

After a while, I noticed the silicone start to bubble up. It was really hard to get a good picture of it, but I think you can see it in the picture below.

G4 Big Boss Vibe

POW! Definitely the first words that came to mind when I saw this vibe. It’s a nice size and the silicone gives it just enough drag to make you feel wonderful. I’m talking about the G4 Big Boss Vibe that Babeland supplied for this review. I was so excited to get this and when the box came I don’t think I could have torn open the paper and box faster. Sadly, I didn’t read the directions well, and couldn’t figure out how to charge this. This was my first rechargeable vibe, and I definitely was impressed. I didn’t think a toy without batteries or being plugged into the wall was going to be good, but this definitely was. Measuring in at 9 3/4″ long and 1 3/4″ wide, I was definitely ready to try this out. Boy, I was disappointed in the fact I had to wait, it needed charging first.

I couldn’t figure out for the life of me how to charge this. The directions are very tiny, and there wasn’t any clear direct direction on how to plug this in. There was no port to plug anything in, and the charger was just some metal prongs. I tried and tried and tried to figure out how to charge this. After 1/2 hour, and help from another friend. We both felt really stupid when we realized that the word “FUN” on the front of the toy were metal, not silver color, and that is how you charge this toy. Well, off the toy went to the bedroom for a long charging and my impatience had to sit still for a couple hours.

Finally, it was time to try out one of the toys I had been waiting for for a long time. My partner and I were really surprised at the weight of the toy, but how easy it was to use. You can use lube with this, but only water lube, as silicone lube will break this down, as it’s a 100% silicone toy. Well, they say 100% silicone, but the handle is plastic and metal. I love how the handle is actually a loop handle instead of just something to hold on to. It made thrusting sooooo much easier. I have to say, having the excitement of getting to use this toy, we didn’t need any lube at all.

Very amazing feeling, and helped fill me up greatly. The G4 Big Boss is a great one to be able to work up to fisting too. The length of this was amazing, and the head of this was shaped like an actual penis head. The silicone was amazingly firm yet pliable, so that it didn’t hurt when thrusting. This is though, one of those toys that you would definitely want to work up to using if you aren’t used to larger toys. With the girth being 1 3/4″, it’s not the size of your normal toy. You want to be careful with thrusting, as with any toy, about hitting the cervix, you can cause damage, or permanent harm to the body. This toy can be used anally, but I would suggest using a condom unless that is the only way and only person this toy is going to be use for. This toy cannot be worn as a plug, but it really doesn’t have the possibility of getting lost inside the rectum. This toy is a tad bit too big for that possibility.

The controls were pretty easy to use. The buttons are on the handle and are touch activated. You really don’t have to push hard to get them to respond. They do light up so that it is possible to use this in the dark. You have a + sign, a – sign and a * sign on the handle for buttons. The star sign and the plus sign both can turn on the toy. The minus sign turns off the toy when held down and brought down to the lowest setting and then off. The plus sign increases the intensity of the toy. The star sign changes the patterns of the toy. Yes, this toy even has patterns. Honestly, they are patterns I’ve not seen in another toy. They aren’t your normal ones either. The patterns are as follows: bzzzzzz, stronger bzzzzzz, bzz bzzz bzz bzz bzzz, 3 quick bzz repeating, and low bzz getting higher then starting over.

The G4 Big Boss is not loud. It could be heard through a blanket but not through a door. Sadly, the highest setting can begin to numb your hand after a little bit. We decided to use this toy without the vibrations because the toy itself had more than enough sensation with the ridges along the length of the toy. The penis head also strokes the G spot just right, and if used well could cause squirting with the right person.

The funnest part of this toy, was when my partner decided she just couldn’t to see what the toy felt like herself. She thrust the toy inside me then herself. OMG the feeling was amazing and didn’t hurt at all. This toy was firm but pliable enough to do double vaginal penetration with. She said that the feeling was wonderful for her too. The toy didn’t hurt against her skin and didn’t hurt when thrusting either.

Overall I’d give this toy a 4 out of 5 stars. Only because the directions were not clear on how to charge this, which had little effect on the stars. The main reason this went down in stars is the fact this toy causes the hand numbing sensations. I hate that in a toy, and it causes me
to want to use the vibrations less. I love toys that the vibration is in the head or body of the toy and less in the handle of the toy.

This toy I would recommend and have recommended to friends.

Calla Vibe by Fun Factory

I recently received the Calla vibe from Babeland. The Calla vibe is part of Fun Factory‘s line of G4 toys. The Calla has 5 speeds and 3 vibration patterns. It is rechargeable through their patented Click-and-Charge technology.  All of the vibes can be used with the same charging cord.

The Calla is made of high quality silicone, which means that it is durable, hypoallergenic and easy to clean. One negative to the oh so soft feeling of the silicone, it is a dust and fluff magnetic. Calla should be cleaned before and after each use. Calla can be cleaned with mild soap and warm water. I used some of the toy wipes that I had on hand. Fun Factory does offer a cleaner for their toys as well. You should only use water based lubricants with this toy because using silicone based lube could cause your vibe to develop a very unpleasant smell.

It is worth noting that besides the Calla vibe only the Paul and Paulina is  suitable for anal use. This is because the other toys don’t have anything at their base to stop them from being pulled farther into the body by the anal muscles.

Pros-

  • powerful
  • waterproof
  • soft
  • not too big
  • easy to hold on to

Cons-

  • lint magnet
  • can be hand-numbing to use
  • charging time vs. usage time
  • my clit was too far back to get any joy from the protrusion at the base

Overall, I can say that I love this vibe. Yes, I had to use a little lubrication to get started, but it was well worth the effort. I am not really a huge fan of insertable toys, at least ones this size or bigger. The Calla measures with the handle around 9″ long. 5 of those inches can be inserted. The diameter of this vibe is 1 5/8 inches and it is 2 inches wide. Calla starts small at the tip and gradually gets bigger. Its powerful vibrations are a thing of joy for me.  I am not 100% for the boost button either. It worked better for me to start out by pushing the boost button, instead of after I had been using the regular speeds. The patterns were ok, but the speeds got me where I needed to be a lot faster.

Pattern 1- a steady vroooooooommmm

Pattern 2-feels like a fast paced beating drum to me-bumpbumpbumpbump- continuous

Pattern 3- vroomvroom vroomvroom– continuous

If I could increase the intensity of the patterns, I would be more inclined to use them.

Although I want to give this vibe 5 stars, I can’t. Even with the cons that I have listed the major turn off for this toy is that after a minimum of 6 hours of charging time, it only gives me less than an hour to use it.  If I use Calla on high, I can expect around 30 minutes.That makes me very unhappy.  The plus side to this is that it has only died on me once. I know some of you are wondering how this could ever be a plus. Its a plus because I listened more carefully to how it sounded and I knew when it was starting to get low on juice.

Black Label Jack Rabbit Anniversary Edition

For this month’s CalExotics Sexpert review, I received the Black Label Jack Rabbit Anniversary Edition. There are so many rabbits on the market right now, so you should research a while before picking one out. The BLJR is a dual stimulation vibe, which is my preference these days. It also has two other traits that are my preferences, it’s waterproof and it is made of silicone.

Being that it is made of silicone, it is only compatible with water based lubricants. The tip of this rabbit is slightly rounded and looks realistic.  It has a ridge down the middle of the shaft as well, which I couldn’t feel once the toy was inserted. The shaft has a swirled design, that is purely decoration and gives no added stimulation.

The Jack Rabbit was very easy to use. The control panel is made of ABS plastic. The Jack Rabbit has 5 buttons on the control panel located at the base of the shaft. The middle button is the power button, which has to be pushed before any of the other buttons will work. The top button controls the 7 functions of vibration for the rabbit arm. The two buttons at the bottom increase or decrease the shaft’s rotation and vibration. The vibrations of the clitoral arm and the shaft can be used together or separately, depending upon user preference. The rabbit runs on 3 AA batteries. The battery cover was a bit of a pain to open and close.

The shaft is thick and gave a very full feeling when inserted. Starting out I had to use a bit extra lube, because of the thickness of the shaft. The rotations were an added bonus for me. To get any enjoyment from the clitoral arm took quite a bit of maneuvering for me. It is not something that will fit every woman’s anatomy perfectly, so you may have to play with it a bit, to figure out what works best for you.

Pros:

  • easy to use
  • easy to clean
  • dual stim
  • thick
  • silicone
  • waterproof- no difference in strength when underwater that I noticed

 

Cons:

  • may not fit everyone’s anatomy
  • lint magnet
  • 3 AA batteries
  • rather loud

Overall, I would say that this is definitely one that I would consider purchasing. The Jack Rabbit should be stored away from other toys, preferably in a cloth bag. Be warned it is a lint magnet, but then again I have noticed that most of my silicone toys are. It is a turnoff that it requires 3 AA batteries, but there is a rechargeable version of this vibe available for an extra chunk of change. It is easy to clean, whether it be with soap/water, toy cleaner or toys wipes. The major downside of this rabbit for me, was the loudness of the toy itself. If you’re using this and don’t want anyone to know, be sure to turn on some music before getting started to muffle the sound.

Thanks CalExotics for providing this to review!

Alise vibrating massager from New Sensations

The Alise vibrating massager is from New Sensations. It is available from Eden Fantasys in 2 colors, pink and purple. While I was very excited to try this massager, I was disappointed by its lack of power as well as the neck of the massager being much too flexible for my tastes. I prefer firmer more powerful vibes for my sex play. I received this from Eden Fantasys in exchange for an honest review, you can read my entire review here.

Settings on Ali’se
Level 1- low – 1 vroom/1 bee
Level 2- medium – 2 vrooms/ 1 bee
Level 3- high – 3 vrooms/ 1 bee
Level 4- slow build with long buzz at the end -bzbzbz…bzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Level 5- bzz bzz bzz- continuous
Level 6- bz bz bz – continuous
Level 7- bzz bzz bzz bzzzzzzz- at 4 maybe 5 sec intervals

*When you turn it off/on, it starts over at the lowest level.* 

Pros:

  • body safe silicone
  • rechargeable
  • waterproof
  • quiet
  • easy to use
  • easy to clean

Cons:

  • too flexible neck
  • large head

Key points:

  • material safety rating of 10 on EF scale
  • Length: 7 1/2″
  • Insertable length: 5 1/2″
  • Circumference: 5 1/2″
  • Diameter: 2″
  • Weight: 0.75 lb
  • Functions: Escalating / Pulsating / Rollercoaster
  • Special Features include: Light indicators, Multifunction, Multispeed, Quiet
  • Waterproof
  • Controlled by a built in control pad
  • Rechargeable

While it had many of the features that most people would look for: rechargeable, waterproof, whisper quiet ( and I do mean whisper quiet), it lacks the power that many of us crave. This makes it less likely that I would use this toy as my go-to option. It was disappointing, to say the least.
