Indigo Tries the DivaInner

8 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a classic Gin Fizz. It’s sort of weird, and you don’t think you’ll like it, but then it turns out okay.
This product was sent to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. You can purchase it here for around $33 (US) at time of posting.
The DivaInner Rabbit Vibe sits in a black box surrounded by black foam. It has a black charging cord next to it. The Vibe is purple with an S-shaped clitoral arm. The base of it is white, and rounded with one flatter part on the same side as the clitoral arm where the buttons are.
DivaInner approached me with a possibility of reviewing some products for them. When I looked at their website, I was extremely put off originally. The pages of their website read like some kind of Victoria’s Secret magazine with women in lingerie, and talking about women’s health. I was very close to saying “Thank you but no.” And then I saw the prices of their products. $33 US dollars for a rabbit vibrator made with body-safe materials is very reasonable.
So I held my breath, and I said yes. I was expecting the motor to be bad, and the shipping to take forever.
They only sell through Amazon, which is normally another red flag for me as a reviewer. However, it did mean that it came with Prime-speed shipping, so I had the toy in hand less than a week after I agreed to review it. I also heard from my friend Beaux from The Beauxdoir that they also reviewed it and found it lacking.
So it is pretty safe to say that I wasn’t excited about it toy when I received it. I was willing to try it for the price range. On the off chance that I liked it, I thought it might make pleasure more accessible to some folx who have money issues. I wasn’t convinced because it doesn’t feel waterproof (and I decided not to fully test it). Water resistant toys are okay, but harder to clean. When the package arrived, I plugged it in to charge, as was recommended. It charged up over the course of a day, and then I let it sit untouched for almost three days. I just couldn’t muster the gumption to really try it.
And then I did. Now, I have toys that vibrate internally. That was my favorite sensation for a long time. However, I don’t think I’ve had toys that vibrate and specifically hit the g-spot. Additionally, I have never owned a rabbit vibe. My body is all kinds of weird shapes and not-normal. It never occurred to me that a rabbit vibe would feel good. So the DivaInner was a whole new experience. First g-spot vibration, and first rabbit vibrator.
I liked it.
I turned it on and was pleasantly surprised that the motor wasn’t overly buzzy. It actually felt powerful. I can get off on a powerful buzz. In fact, I like that so much better than a weak rumble. I am a power slut, what can I say? So when I inserted this, I thought it would feel okay. What I didn’t expect was for my whole vulva to feel it. It almost felt like someone had grabbed the anterior of my vagina and just shook it. I felt it on my labia, my clit and my g-spot. (Hey, future partners, pay attention to this. It may be good to try!)
The DivaInner Rabbit Vibe is sitting on it's back to show off the buttons. The buttons are purple to match the vibe with the minus button closer to the vibrator, the power button in the center and the plus button closest to the butt end.
I never managed to orgasm on the lowest setting. It just isn’t in my body’s nature to enjoy low settings. As usual, I also ignored the patterns. I just hate patterns okay? They were there, and I’m sure there were a number of them. But I want pressure, and consistency. If I want patterns, I’ll find a partner to bang.
Now, let’s talk about the clitoral arm. It doesn’t reach the head of my clit. I tried, but it just won’t work. I sort of wedge it between my labia and I get lube and goop on my fingers and it just doesn’t work. However, the arm does reach the sweet spot between the head and my vaginal opening. And with a little help from my fingers, to get the pressure I crave, I can have some excellent orgasms with this toy. Wonders never cease, I really like this toy.
The controls are also a pleasant surprise. There are three buttons on this toy. If you press and hold the center power button, the toy turns on. After it’s on, the Plus and Minus buttons adjust the power. If you press the power button again, you cycle through patterns. You have to press and hold to turn it off. All in all, the controls are very intuitive. The charging is the same way. I dislike how thin the charging jack is on the cord, but once inserted into the toy, the light on the front gentle flashes to show it’s charging. Once fully charged, it’s a steady light. It’s not a complicated toy, which earns points for it in my book. I hate having to figure out too much just for pleasuring myself.
Overall, this toy is actually pretty good. It comes at a reasonable price for body safe materials. It may be a bit annoying to clean due to not being waterproof, but it’s a solid vibrator that has a nice shape. It also comes in it’s own box, which isn’t a complaint either.

Indigo Tries Fun Factory Dolly Bi!

8 out of 10
Pairs well with a nice Cabernet Sauvignon. A little acidic, but mostly robust and rather dry.
It tends to retail for about $100. 6.9″ long total, 1.6″ diameter. 6 vibration intensities and 6 patterns.

This photo is paired with my G-Spot Tickler, and my super-femme bed sheets.

At the sex shop where I used to work, there was a talk from Fun Factory. They sent a rep to talk about new products and give us some deals on what we ordered. At the end of the talk, all the workers present were presented with a gift; the Dolly Bi.
This vibrator is not one of Fun Factory’s fanciest. (Well, it WAS free.) It’s also not their well-known product (that’s the Stronic line). However, this vibrator does hold up well in today’s market, and the only way I could convey that is through lists. Here’s why:

  1. Good motor. I am quite spoiled on my vibrator experience. I don’t own very many, but I have felt many vibrators in my job at the sex shop. The Dolly Bi is above average. Does it absolutely blow my mind with one feel? No. But, it DOES feel pretty awesome on my clit. It’s not buzzy at all. It’s rumbly and deep.
  2. It’s rechargeable. I know this doesn’t make it stellar, but seriously, this click’n’charge thing is SO COOL. It attaches to the toy with some magnets and makes this weird noise and then it’s charging. My boyfriend cannot hear this noise, but it’s a high-pitched whine that I assume is the energy passing into the battery. It’s not alarming, just annoying.
  3. It’s a fun shape! Seriously, who DOESN’T like dolphins? Because it’s not in-your-face dolphin. It just happens to be dolphin shaped. If the tip didn’t have a mouth etched into it or tails on the bottom, it would just be a new shape. It’s classy and subtle type of dolphin. Not “oh my god I can’t have a vibrator can we please make it a shape instead” type of dolphin.
  4. It’s a subtle rabbit. It doesn’t try REALLY hard to hit the clitoris. It has a little arm that sticks into my urethral area, instead of my clit. It honestly still feels good because that area is pretty stimulating for me. However, I do tend to pat that arm on the head and push it gently away. Better than the types that stick themselves IN THE WAY of my clit with NO moving.
  5. It pin points the vibes. Exactly. It pinpoints the vibes in that nose, making it very easy for me to direct the vibrations into the exact spot that feels best (that spot seems to move frequently).
  6. But it doesn’t ONLY have pinpoint stimulation. The vibrations are all over the shaft of this toy, which curves into the nose. As a result, I can use the “back” of the dolphin over my whole labia, or turn it sideways and get a curve of vibration AROUND my clit (this feels really great).
  7. It comes in a color that isn’t pink or purple. That’s right folks, it comes in a wonderful Navy Blue (called dark blue on the website). I love that I have a toy which is blue. As a genderfluid person who adores rainbows, I like having choices.
  8. The controls make sense and are simple. The biggest button turns it on. The plus and minus buttons run through the settings (again, six steady intensities, six patterns). In addition, if you hold the fun button and the minus button at the same time for about 2 seconds, it locks into travel mode. If you hold the fun button and the plus for two seconds, it comes out of that.

So those are the really great points of this toy. I’ve been more than happy with how this toy has passed. I can verify that it’s %100 waterproof (every toy should be in my opinion). I can also verify that it holds charge. I didn’t charge it for two weeks. Not only did it hold the charge, but it actually still worked really well.
There are some negative points to this toy as well. I want to go into some detail, but I don’t want to dwell on them, because I do really like this toy, and I feel it is a sound investment if you want to support Fun Factory, which you should.

  1. The first one is the handle. It can get really hard to hold when slippery. I often find my fingers going numb or hurting trying to keep this toy firmly against my clit. However, I like a lot of pressure on my clit. I’m a power slut.
  2. The next one is that charging noise. It’s high-pitched in my ear, but it is quiet enough that at about 3 feet (the distance from my pillow to the ground where it rests), I can’t hear it.
  3. The clitoral arm. Why does this need to be there? It’s unnecessary and it feels kind of excessive. Not needed in the toy. Does not make better.
  4. The charging lights have no pattern. They could have easily made it a simple “this many blinks for battery life.” Instead, it seems to blink arbitrarily until it’s full, when it stops. (Also, there’s a protector on the battery, so you can’t harm it by leaving it on the charge for too long. They care!)
  5. The biggest drawback to this toy is the price tag. $100 is fairly steep. However, I understand why. Fun Factory has entirely unionized it’s workers. They work to help the environment by not using adhesives in their packaging (though too much cardboard). They also use %100 medical grade silicone in every toy. I understand why it’s $100, but the minimum wage being what it is, I have a hard time justifying it.

This toy has been regularly used in my play. I happily hand it to my boyfriend to use on me, and I use it myself. It’s quickly thrown my old bullet off of it’s throne. I would actually highly recommend this vibe (or other Fun Factory items), though it is expensive.
This post took the form of lists, which is a first. But I do like lists a lot, so it may not be the last!
