Sex Toy – Review [Affiliate Links Inside]
While I don’t review toys nearly as often as I probably should, when I do have the opportunity, hot damn do I ever have a fun time. This was my first toy that came with a remote control and was wearable!!! And let me just say, I absolutely found the perfect volunteer to help press my buttons! If you want to read the more …*ahem* erotic tale of our testing session you can find that on my Patreon (after dark). For this blogs purpose though, let me share my thoughts on the pros, cons, and ultimately why I am absolutely a fan of the Aya Wearable Vibrator from Zalo.
The one down side is the charging time, and so I figured I would just get that out of the way first. While I understand the accessibility and simplicity that using a USB based charger affords, the reality is that it just slows down the process. I think my initial charge took over 6 hours to complete. Honestly, I got bored and went to run some errands so that I was no longer just watching for that blinking light to go solid. Once charged though, the toy, illuminates in a clear and direct way.
But, on a positive note about the whole charging situation, this is also the first magnetic charger I have used that just worked! Each and every time the magnet is solid. So, overall yay?
Now for the sound, which I think is what people are most curious about. It is touted as a discrete toy, as far as sound goes, but, I personally wouldn’t be able to go out to a restaurant, to use it. And to be clear, that has nothing to do with the toy itself and everything to do with me. Feeling the intense vibrations (which are amazing and are of course why the this little gem makes sound) has a tendency to create some *cough* sounds, especially when you are someone like me who has a difficult time staying quiet. The audible gasps, and visibly red cheeks are what would be noticed by a passerby’s and not the little hum coming from inside my underwear. Ha!
Now, if you are able to stay quiet and calm perhaps you could pull off a discrete romantic candlelit dinner. As it does specify a 40 dB level which Google handily compared to a library as far as ambient sound. So, I guess it’s up to your personal risk level? All in all, though, it admittedly does sound louder when you are wearing it than it does to anyone else. So take that with a grain of salt. I did a side by side sound check with with my other toys and it is quieter. As well, the clothing (if you’re wearing it in public for a little risque adventure does mute it as well. I just have no poker face to speak of, so I’m out.
Let us talk about distance between remote and the wearer. I was able to test it in a house with three floors. The remote is quite responsive a floor away, but, it loses connection when you are more than one floor apart (and yes it was advertised as being same room only, but of course, I had to make sure!). Nothing is more fun than running upstairs with a toy hanging out of you yelling “I’m ready! Press more buttons!” Isn’t half the fun of having a helping hand in just seeing their reaction too? I certainly think so! And there are toys out there specifically geared for long distance which I hope to explore in future reviews.
So, there is a QR code, with an app based interface that you can use your cell phone to control this lovely wearable vibrator. I have gone back and forth on whether or not I was comfortable testing this feature. Admittedly am the most tech savvy, tech avoidance person I know. I love the idea of what technology has to offer, but I struggle with just how much information I ultimately give access to. If you’ve been following me, or reading my words for any length of time, you’ve probably realized that while I share a tonne about my life, it is always on my terms. Rarely do I entertain people prying or pressuring me to give more than I already have. So, for the time being, I am not going to download the app. But, if you choose to and wish to share your experience I would love to include your review for others! Just comment below and we can chat about that.
Ahhhh, for anyone who has read my toy reviews before, I am consistently blow away by how visually stunning toys are made. Take this one for example. It is made of velvety soft silicon, that is easy to clean, and a rich green colour. It has delightful gold accents, that are not only beautiful, but hide the cleverness of a magnet that makes securing to your underwear or chosen fabric even easier (See image). The drawstring bag has come in handy when I have taken the toy over to be tested with my helping hand! And again, I simply love the elegance, and kinda wanna keep the black box (See image) as much as I want to store it in the bag for easy on the go, mobility. So, beautiful, easy to clean and store, and of course, very soft to touch. Visually stunning!
Overall, I adore this toy. And it is the first “couples” type toy that I anticipate becoming an active participant in my bedroom. It is not the star, but it is amazing for fourplay, is very fun to use, and just fits my body incredibly well. Thus, if you are looking for a wearable device, I highly recommend the Aya (which you can purchase directly through this post and support me reviewing future toys!)
