|Prince's suit is the exact color of Jopen's Vanity VR9. Coincidence?!|
Retail price: $146ish
Specs: 9.75" long, 3.5" circumference, 1.175" diameter (depends on which part), about .5lbs
This is a long, flexible, curved, double headed and insertable vibrator in a cornea searing shade of magenta! A friend described it as looking like "A pattern you might see in 1960's textiles" and that's not too far off. One end is thick and bulbous with a gentle G-spot curve, the other end is more flexible, with a small knob for pin-point stimulation. Both ends vibrate, there are two buttons at center to control either end. Press down on the button to turn it on, hold down to increase intensity, press again to turn it off. You can "lock" the toy by pressing both buttons simultaneously. The toy is made of soft matte silicone, so it's easy to clean and doesn't pick up lint or dust. There is a tiny hole in the base for charging from a wall socket, it's fully charged in 4 hours, not sure how many hours of use its good for, but I have no complaints thus far. (I am starting to wish there was a universal charger for sex toys, since I'm having a hard time keeping my Jopen charger straight from my Lelo and Jimmy Jane ones). The Vanity V9 is not exactly discreet looking, but it's definitely a fun and "arty" looking toy, which I like!
Comes with a pouch for storage. Waterproof. One year warranty (you can purchase a longer warranty as well.)
I have come to the conclusion that I really prefer hard toys (steel, glass, etc.) for G spot stimulation, so I had to use this one a few times to get into the groove of using a softer toy for G spot stimulation. The smaller end gives a more intense g-spot sensation, but is so thin that I actually prefer it for clitoral stimulation. (For the record, these more diffuse toys never seem to work to get me off clitorally- I need my hitachi or silver bullet).I preferred the bigger end, it has a nice girth, stays in place nicely when inserted and is great for doing kegels. The flexible shaft/skinny end and position of the on/off buttons means it can be kind of tricky to use this toy for rhythmic penetration, but feels great for G-spotting once you get the hang of it. Also, even though it has two separate motors, you can feel the vibration all the way to the other end if one side is turned on, so if you are annoyed by gripping a buzzy toy, this could be an issue. I could see this working as a vaginal insertable during anal sex. I am not sure if this is something that should be used anally- it's quite long, but doesn't have a flared base, so use your own judgement in this regard.
This toy is great for getting down down in the tub or shower, as it's waterproof. (Semi-related rant: silicone lubes are best for use underwater, but you can't use silicone lubes with silicone toys, and I imagine putting a condom on this for underwater use might be incredibly cumbersome. If anyone has any tips for this, please let me know.)
My main complaint about this toy are the power buttons- it turns on/off too easily, and I may just keep it in lock mode when not in use. I accidentally turned it on with my butt when it was lying on my bed, and I've repeatedly accidentally turned it off or on while using it because the buttons are so touch sensitive and located on the same part of the toy you grip for thrusting. It used to annoy me that my JimmyJane was so cumbersome to turn off, but I'm starting to realize that's actually an advantage!
Overall Grade: 8/10
There are a few minor design flaws, but still totally awesome!
