He looks cute and all , but after reading others reviews of this style of sex toys and images of the clit stimulator banging against my clitoris running around in my mind ...well I will admit , my expectations for the Ripple of Love were not very high.

Monday, May 24, 2010Labels: Adult Toy Shoppe, Reviews, Ripple of Love
First off, I was in for a nice surprise when I turned it on for the first time! I read in the description that the shaft rotated, but I assumed it would do so in the way that pearls inside the shaft would rotate. This guy squirms, back and forth...around...opposite directions...multiple speeds..
Just having him slither his way down my belly towards my pussy like a creature investigating it's surroundings was an excitement like none other ! When it reached my pussy lips, I had to help it out a little because the antennae got stuck for a second. As it felt it's way around and crawled inside of me I quickly lost all rational thought and enjoyed the fantasy that I was being held captive and probed by a rotating, vibrating, pulsating....alien ?
The website says the Ripple of Love is silicone, but the package says it is made from TPE. This material is hypo-allergenic,odorless,tasteless, phthalates & latex free and can be used with both silicone and water based lubes. You can clean it with plain old soap and water or your favorite sex toy cleaner but unfortunately it can't be sterilized. This toy is also not waterproof so you need to be careful not to get any water on the controls while cleaning it.
It takes 4 "AA" batteries and the battery compartment has a sliding lock so that they don't come loose at the wrong moment. The entire battery casing comes out by pulling it downwards, away from the toy after unlocking it. The included remote takes 2 "AAA" batteries. Even though I didn't measure the actual distance, I was able to get the remote to work from pretty far away! I have fun little thoughts of bringing this guy out to show to my friends, and then secretly turning it on with the remote to creep them out hehe.. The remote did work for me through the sheet, and the blanket..and my hand, but not through the pillow.
The clitoral stimulator is 2 1/4 inches long and has 6 LED lights to indicate speed, but #5 and 6 seem like they are the same to me.It is very quiet even on the highest setting.The antennae give a nice gentle tingling touch to start with, and when you want more pressure you can slide the vibe in deeper so that you can press the shaft of the stimulator against your clit as hard as you please. It is not flexable, but can be moved just enough by hand to get it into the perfect position.
The rotations feel good regardless of which of the speeds you use. It too has 6 lights to indicate the speed but I don't think it has 6 speeds either; 4 for sure, possibly 5 - it is hard to tell! Unlike the vibrator, the rotations are pretty loud...though I did test it by putting it in the bathroom and closing the door - and I couldn't hear it so the noise may not be an issue unless you leave your door open.
They each adjust with their own button so you can use any combination of the different speed settings that you like - The packaging states that there are 108 different combinations so I am sure you can find the one that works best for you!
To make it even more interesting, there are 3 seperate functions that work for both the shaft and the clit vibe. The first is constant, the second is pulsating, and the third pulsates even faster. If you press the function button while both are on, they will change together. But these can also be adjusted individually if you press it while only one is on - turn it off at the setting you like and then adjust the other. This way each one can be set just right for when you turn it on.
It is a little awkward to hold because the toy is so long due to the size of the handle/battery compartment. It is 9 1/2 inches long from the base of the handle to the tip (not including the antennae) the insertable length is about 4 1/2 inches and the diameter is just under 2". Not a small toy, but in no way too big to be uncomfortable internally. I think it would be wonderful to have someone else holding this vibe, while I use the controller to adjust the vibrations and can't wait to try it this way!
Beware, don't plan on turning this toy off in a hurry! Each time you press the off button, it slows down by one speed. So if you had both at #6 you will have to press each button 6 times to turn it off!
Overall, I really love this toy, it is very unique and has definitely turned me on to rabbit style vibes! Thank you Adult Toy Shoppe for sending it to me for review!
