My ultimate goal for the Pirates Pendant Vibe was to see how many different places I could wear it around at, without anyone catching on to what it is. I wore it to the bar, the dentist office, the grocery store and of course wore it while I was walking down the street and even to my kids' school.
Lets just pretend that if you did see someone walking around wearing a vibrator , that you would stop them and say - "Hey! I know that's a sex toy around your neck!!" With that thought in your mind you can rest assured that since nobody said anything to me , they couldn't have possibly noticed!
The chain it comes with is about 28 inches long (pulled straight) and hangs right between my breasts. The vibe itself is almost teardrop shaped and about 2.5 inches long and 3/4 inches wide. It does look more like costume jewelery or something that would be intended for a child or teen and included as a freebie with a pirate movie, so might not always fit in with your wardrobe.
Excuse the cat hair on my shirt...
It is made of phthalate and latex free plastic and has a velvety soft coating that is hypoallergenic and non-porous. It does have a visible seam on four sides, but the design is raised higher than the seam. The tip has a very small flat spot, which makes it feel slightly sharp. You would have to scratch yourself with it pretty roughly for it to actually hurt so it isn't a big issue, but it is there and for an adult toy I definitely consider it a downside. *Note that in my photos it appears that the seam on the cap doesn't line up with the seam on the vibe. It does in fact line up but I didn't have it fully tightened when I took the photos*
It takes 3 watch batteries -which are included- and has 5 different vibrations. You need to remove a small piece of plastic from the battery compartment before use. You turn it on by pressing the button at the top (where it connects to the chain). The first two are a constant vibration with the second one being stronger. The third and forth pulsate, again with the second one being faster. The fifth one is best described as a short-short-long pulsation. Help me out if there is a better way to word this !
I had some fun tucking the vibe into the pocket on my panties and walking around with it, but even the lowest setting is too loud to do this if you are in a quiet room. Since it does not have a remote, you will need to pull it out of your pants to shut it off so not the best idea to use it this way if you need to be very discrete.
It is small enough to use during intercourse without getting in the way. The vibrations it gives are all pretty strong, but the designs made it a little rough for using directly on my clit. I found it was best for me to hold it in place rather than rubbing with it. It also worked nicely if I used it on top my my clitoral hood and avoided the sensitive tissues underneath.
When I was wearing it, my baby seemed to like grabbing it and the button was easy enough for her to accidentally press by pushing it against me. To turn it off you need to cycle through all the speeds so be careful if you are in a situation where you want to be able to turn it off quickly. I have used it a few times for 10-20 minutes each, and so far the batteries haven't died yet so I can't say how long they last.
The vibe can be used with any lube you like, and cleaned with with water and a mild soap or sex toy cleaner. It is splashproof, but shouldn't be submerged in water since it isn't completely waterproof. If you don't like black, it is also available in Copper, Gold, Pink, and White.
