|Bright sunshiny vibe|
I admit it - I'm not a fan of pink or purple. Any sex toy that has some other colour choices is sure to get a second look from me. The Shag Factory Happiness Vibe is so bright and cheerful in yellow that I knew I had to have it.
The Happiness vibe comes in a sealed pouch with the groovy Shag Factory designs on it. No embarrassing porn imagery!
Once I opened the packet, I liked the look and feel of the silicone sleeve. The little daisy on the tip looked promising for clitoral stimulation and it's just overall cute and cheery.
First you have to open the bullet to remove the little paper disk on the batteries, and this isn't easy. The silicone sleeve is rather clingy. I finally succeeded by dripping some lube in between the bullet and sleeve and then sliding a finger in to spread the lube around. Once I'd done that, I was able to slide the bullet out far enough to get to the battery compartment. I don't think I would have been able to get to the battery compartment without using lube.
The bullet is very easy to use, with a push button control for three power settings. Unfortunately, it's rather noisy for such a small toy. It is louder than my Erotic Rocket, with more of a hum than a rumble, and of course the higher pitched humming type noise carries further. I had bought this with the idea of taking it with me on vacation, but I wouldn't feel comfortable using this with one thin wall between me and my relatives.
If you can ignore the noise, the vibrations are nice and strong, at least when the batteries are fresh, and the little daisy on the silicone sleeve turned out to feel as nice as I had imagined. I placed a little dab of Liquid Silk lube on the end, and the texture plus the vibrations was an excellent combination.
It's a shame the vibe is so noisy, because it really lets down the product. I believe when the batteries run down on this, I'll send it on to the great naughty drawer in the sky (i.e. Rabbit Amnesty) and save the sleeve to use on a quieter bullet.
Verdict: 3 out of 5 stars
