At the end of December in 2018, I was contacted by a random account on Instagram which asked if I would like to receive a sex toy to review. I was told I should purchase a specific toy on Amazon and that upon proof of purchase from a specific seller I would receive a refund via PayPal. I should do this in exchange for an Amazon.com review. This is what is known as an incentivized review, which were banned on Amazon on October 3, 2016. Despite this ban, incentivized reviews still frequently occur.
I agreed to review the toy, purchased it and sent proof of purchase. I did not accept the PayPal payment and I reported the incident to Amazon. But it was one incident for a product that has made thousands of “sales” (according to ReviewMeta.com, 68% of reviews of the toy are “unnatural”), so the company, Adorime, is still selling their products (solely) on Amazon. Due to this, I decided to go ahead and write a little something about the toy.
The Adorime High-Frequency G-Spot Clitoris vibrator is a cheap toy which gets its concept and design by combining features from two name brand toys: 2009’s Eroscillator by Swiss Healthcare Solutions (Switzerland) and 2017’s Zumio X by Zumio (Canada).
The visual design is clearly taken from the Zumio while the functional design is taken from the Eroscillator. Like the Eroscillator, the tip of the Adorime High-Frequency G-Spot Clitoris vibrator moves quickly from side to side in a movement known as oscillation.
Like the Zumio, the motor is in the handle with the controls embedded over the motor. This makes using the toy a challenge. It’s difficult to move it and hold it without accidentally turning it off or surprising yourself by changing the intensity of the vibration to one of the ten settings.
While the Adorime toy is relatively quiet when operating it, that’s only if it’s used with a light touch. When the least bit of pressure is applied, the motor begins to make a very audible hum. The fully charged toy ran for 1 hour and 56 minutes, but at 5 minutes and thirty seconds started to slow down.
Upon opening the box, I was immediately hit with the odor of what smelled like wet paint. After removing the toy, washing it, and leaving it in the open air to “breathe,” when I held it up near my face it still smelled like wet paint. The smell transferred to my hand that held the toy. I was only able to be in the same room as the toy for 30 minutes as the smell caused me to develop a headache.
The odor of the toy (and the silky-smooth texture of the surface) are likely due to the silicone having been coated in polyurethane. While polyurethane (a type of polymer) can be used to protect the material it is covering from degradation (abrasion, corrosion, etc.), silicone’s pores are too small for bacteria, viruses, and fungi to get inside, so there’s zero need to coat silicone from a safety perspective.
Safe toys do not smell, period.
Polyurethane coating is what causes the velvet, silky smooth texture and helped motorized toys maintain a consistent temperature. The motor in the Adorime High-Frequency G-Spot Clitoris vibrator is at the top of the handle of the toy; the longer the runs, the hotter this portion of the handle becomes. The smell of the toy gets stronger the longer it is run.
When I applied Ducky Doolittle’s “lick test” to the forked tip / head replacement, the part of my tongue that made contact with the toy developed a light sensation of burning. As both tongues and vaginas are mucous membranes, I would keeping this G spot toy far, far away from any vagina.
The Adorime model also comes with two styles of tips to attach to the pinpointed end. Its manual says it is made of “ABS + Silicone.” Adorime.com lists the only material as “silicone.”
Adorime toys can only be purchased on Amazon.com. The Adorime High-Frequency G-Spot Clitoris vibrator retails at $19.99 AliExpress has has the exact same toy by “CocoLili” for $7.91.
The Adorime trademark was registered on 10/31/2017 to Guangzhou Zhongshu E-Commerce Co. Ltd.
