For anyone who doesn’t already know, I love sex toys that give me dual stimulation, so I’m a big fan of rabbit-style vibrators. I seem to prefer those with a rotating shaft as opposed to vibrating, and having a strong clitoral stimulator is a must.
It doesn’t have to be rabbit shaped, but I like there to be flappy bits (long bunny ears, butterfly antennae, squishy spikes, etc.) that jiggle against my clitoris, and a bulbous nose or head is always nice for hitting the U-spot.*
There’s a new collection of luxury sex toys on the market now called Jopen Vanity. I’ve already reviewed the Vr6, which is very well designed and has plenty of power behind the rumbly vibrations its motors produce, but the dimensions just aren’t quite right to fit my anatomy. I’m happy to say that the Vr10 suits me much better. The packaging is the same, except the box is longer to accommodate the larger size of this vibe.
The outer box is just plain white cardboard with the company logo on the front and a picture of the Vr10 and product information on the back. Inside is a promo leaflet resting on top of the vibe, which is sitting on its charging base, and both are held in place (sort of) by a paper insert. Underneath is the charger cable, instruction booklet, and storage bag.
While I love that the packaging is minimal and recyclable, I think it should have better presentation considering this is a luxury sex toy. But ultimately, the box doesn’t affect the vibe’s performance, and at least there’s a generously sized storage pouch included.
The Vr10′s shaft has a slight curve to it, as well as a bulge in the middle with some raised ridges. The curve may look subtle–in fact, I didn’t think it would make that much of a difference–but most of my other rabbit vibes have straight shafts, and I like the feel of this one better.
The bunny’s ears are soft and long enough to flap around, and the tapered nose is great for pinpoint stimulation. There is some adjustability as the rabbit can be pushed back a bit, opening up the angle between shaft and clitoral stimulator.
Like a lot of rabbit-style vibes, the shaft on this one rotates. Not a huge amount, and there aren’t beads moving around, but the motor driving the rotation is powerful. So, while there may not seem to be much movement or range of motion as the shaft is twirling, it’s strong enough to be felt when inserted, AND (this is the most important thing!) no power is compromised when both motors are running. Even when the bunny is at top speed, the shaft doesn’t slow down or lose oomph.
There are two buttons: the top one controls the shaft motor, and the bottom one operates the bunny. Honestly, I found the controls a little counter-intuitive. Pushing either button turns the respective motor on, and to up the speed you press and hold. Just hitting the button once turns off the motor completely.
I love that there are only two buttons, but there’s no way to decrease speed without turning the motor completely off and starting back at the beginning (slowest speed). I’m more used to sliding controls, where you can easily turn the intensity/speed up or down. With this vibe, I often push a button to up the speed and instead end up switching off the motor, which can be frustrating.
The charger cable plugs into a hole on the back of the charging base, and the lights on either side of the control buttons will flash while the battery is charging. Once it’s fully charged up, the lights stop flashing and just stay lit. I rather like the charging base because it allows the Vr10 to stand up on its own, and it avoids having a plug hole on the actual vibe itself where water can seep in.
The shaft motor is strong, but it doesn’t have much range of rotation compared to the other rabbits I have. It seems like it’s barely even moving in a circle when you watch it, so I was honestly prepared to be disappointed because I didn’t think the shaft rotated in a large enough circle to even feel, much less properly stimulate, but I was pleasantly surprised.
Maybe the ridges, center bulge, and curved tip make up for less range of motion, but I also think it’s because the motor is powerful enough to keep the shaft from slowing down once inserted. With all that said, I think a larger rotation would be an improvement.
***Actually, I TOTALLY retract my statement about the shaft not rotating very much, as that’s fixable! Please check out my Jopen Vanity Vr 10 Update for more details.***
The silicone is smooth apart from the few shaft ridges, and it feels nice and slick with just a small amount of water-based lube, but it does attract lint. Also, there is a visible seam running down the front and back. It’s actually one of the first things I noticed when I took it out of the box. I know these things have to be assembled somehow, but I have other luxury vibes that don’t have seams, or at least if they do then they’re not as obvious. Luckily, I can’t feel the seam when I’m using the vibe.
Bottom line: The size and shape of Vr10 suits me very well. It’s an awesome and highly effective rabbit-style vibe that delivers kick-ass orgasms, but I think for the price there should have been a little more attention to detail. I’m just not sure it’s worth the $200+ when compared to other luxury sex toys.
* “The U-Spot. This is a small patch of sensitive erectile tissue located just above and on either side of the urethral opening. It is absent just below the urethra, in the small area between the urethra and the vagina. Less well known than the clitoris, its erotic potential was only recently investigated by American clinical research workers. They found that if this region was gently caressed, with the finger, the tongue, or the tip of the penis, there was an unexpectedly powerful erotic response.” (The Naked Woman by Desmond Morris, page 210)
