Review: CyberSilicone Perfectly Hot Pink

A8809-6I requested the CyberSilicone Perfectly Hot Pink because I was curious about Adam & Eve and had yet to try a traditional vibrator, and this one looked pretty decent. It was also a bit of a random choice since I didn’t take as much time to go through products before selecting them this time.

The Perfectly Hot Pink is… hot pink. A very, very aggressive shade of hot pink. And no, it doesn’t come in any other color. (Otherwise why would it be called the Hot Pink? I’m not a big fan of the name, to tell you the truth, mostly because it doesn’t end in a noun and you can’t tell what it is from the name alone…) I’ve actually come to really like wearing hot pink, but putting it inside me? Doesn’t appeal to me quite as much. It’s also a more realistically-styled vibrator (except for the color), complete with veins, and I’m not a big fan of that, either. Basically, in terms of how it looks the Hot Pink is alright, but doesn’t exactly appeal to me.

Size-wise, the Hot Pink is pretty hefty. It measures 7″ (insertable) x 1.5″, and definitely would not be a good beginner’s choice. Personally, I’ve come to realize that I’m not much of a girth-person; I prefer toys on the smaller-to-moderate side. Working the Hot Pink inside myself took quite a bit of effort. I could fit about 5-6″ inside me and then had to limit myself to shallow thrusts. It also doesn’t have any give at all, since it’s basically a straight, plastic vibrator encased in Cybersilicone.

I actually enjoyed using it on my clit the most. Typical, right? I lubed it up and rubbed the shaft up and down my clit, and it felt pretty amazing. I really liked having something to push up against, and the vibrations of the Hot Pink were strong enough to get me off even though they weren’t concentrated on my clit directly.

…Which brings us to the vibrations, which are powered by two AA batteries, and operated with a simple dial in the base that turns from low to high. The high vibrations are pretty damn high. The Hot Pink definitely delivers in that department, without being overly noisy. The only annoying thing is the positioning of the dial – it doesn’t give you a comfortable space to grasp onto, and the dial is quite small, so if I hold onto that, there’s a chance I’ll turn the vibrations down or up by mistake.

You can also use the Hot Pink in the bath! It’s completely waterproof – there’s an O-ring where the battery compartment screws shut, which prevents water from leaking in. I tried it out in the shower, and held it under a sink full of water for a good few minutes, and it still worked fine.

What makes the Perfectly Hot Pink unique is that it’s made of CyberSilicone, which according to its description, is phthalate-free and non-porous. It is a combination of silicone & cyberskin according to some sources, or a combination of silicone and TPR (thermoplastic rubber) according to others. I’m a little confused about that. In any case, it is not a step-up from regular silicone. I would expect it to feel more realistic or something, if it’s partly made out of cyberskin, but it doesn’t. It actually feels tackier than regular silicone, and has a very unsexy, rubbery smell. I can only smell it when I put it right up to my nose, but for a perfectionist like me that’s still pretty aggravating. Because it has silicone components in it, you can’t use silicone lube with it. Cleaning/sterilizing it is also more of an issue because of the vibrating parts, so you’d only be able to use bleach solution, not boiling or dishwashing.

Right. Now, with all that said, I have to confess that I was being a bad toy owner and wasn’t storing my toys properly for a while. I was traveling from San Francisco to Hong Kong, and put all of my toys in a cloth bag in my luggage. After I got home, I dumped the bag in my closet and left it it there for about a week or so. After I took them all out to sterilize them, I realized that there were some damages on the surface of the Hot Pink – there were several spots where it looked like someone had dragged their finger across the it and “smudged” it. (Tried to take a picture but the spots don’t show up on my crappy camera.) I can only conclude that that happened because I was storing all my silicone toys together when they’re not supposed to be touching each other – whoops. All my other pure-silicone toys, however, were fine, so the Cybersilicone must actually be of worse quality than plain silicone.A8809-62

I was also changing the batteries once, and I must have damaged the dial or something because now there’s a slight rattling noise, and instead of going smoothly from low to high when you turn the dial, it does two “loops”, that is: low to high suddenly back to low to high, again. :| Moral of the story: take care of your sex toys… but still, a toy that can’t survive my owning it for two months without getting damaged in some way probably isn’t made of the best quality material.

In conclusion: a good & versatile vibrator for people who prefer more girth. It may have it’s flaws – but for only ~$25? Quite a deal.

3/5 stars :)
