dot reviews: the DeLight

it wasn't a big deal or anything...

First impressions
Those of you that have been following this blog or my twitter stream will know that even before i had the DeLight in my hands i held a world of expectation. From the moment dr eve shoved it’s buzzing wonderfulness between my legs at a sexpo at the beginning of last year, I have coveted the DeLight. Did she disappoint? Read on...


What it is
The DeLight is a vibrator brought to us by Fun Factory. Like most sex toys it’s cool to use with your partner, but in my opinion, the shape lends itself better to single person fun.

How it works
Sporting what the FF calls the ‘Royal Curl’, this little gem takes minimal effort to use while you’re lying on your back. Resting your arm on your belly, you hold onto the top part of the curve while the bottom half slips easily and intuitively into your vagina. No weird angles, no uncomfortable stretching.


The bottom tip is bendable but firm enough – and knobbed enough – to do what it’s intended to do – stimulate the g-spot, while the ‘s’ curve fits over your clitoral zone and nicely between your labia, stimulating the entire area.

What it does
This little gadget vibrates like a mofo – 8 speeds, top speed is quite an experience – and then also freaking PULSATES (3 speeds).

What i thought of it
The happy
Sometimes i just want to lie in bed with the DeLight snuggled in my vagina with that lovely curve resting between my legs. Sometimes i do just that. It’s an incredibly ... how do i put it ... gentle toy. It’s got all the oomph of penetration and the sexiness of feel against your clit but with none of the carnival freak show about it that some toys have (What is ‘the rabbit’?).

It’s sexy without being porno and I like that it busts the myth that all good penetrative vibes have to be phallic. In fact, my delight is a ‘she’. (She’s resting on my belly as i type this in bed.)

But looks aside. Did it get me off? Hell yeah. I don’t think you could put this little honey on buzz within a few centimetres of your vagina without feeling the happy. I loved the variety of vibration settings and it was quite a treat getting to the last setting (it’s very fast -- like a little ooh-la-la for your clit). And the pulse setting? Left me lying in my own wet spot.

Ultimately i feel incredibly comfortable with the DeLight. Like i can really relax into exploring my hot spots. The song that comes into my mind when i think about me and my delight? Juuuuust the two of us...

The not happy
The curve itself is maybe a little tighter than i expected so it’s a really good thing that the tip is bendable otherwise there’d be no allowance for different body shapes. Or g-spot placing. The ratio between the clit-stimulating knob and the g-spot curve is also debatable, but as the whole toy vibrates equally well along its entire body this isn’t really a problem – ie your clit won’t be left unattended if you penetrate further.

The speed controls are also a little bothersome. Because your thumb is directly over them as you hold the device it’s easy to accidently press a button you don’t want to press. This can be very unfortunate if you’re on pulse and about 5 nanoseconds from coming and your thumb slips over the little minus button.


It takes some getting used to to easily shifting between speeds and settings, especially while you’re in the moment, but i found that lots of practise cleared that issue right up. oh how i love my homework.

dot was always a studious girl
Stats
  1. made from medical-grade silicone and plastic
  2. click n charge (there's a rechargable one that comes in a little case - very sexy, MUCH more expensive)
  3. about R1 100 (though this depends on where and how you buy)
  4. I’m not the only one thinking it’s one of the prettiest vibes around. It’s won the red dot design award 2008, got a silver at the focus open 2009, was nominated for the designpreis 2009 and the IF product design award 2010 (and some other one also...).

i LOVE this little mac-like, eco-friendly click n charge goodie

do i think you should run out and buy it now - yes. or once you've saved up some pennies. it is pretty pricey - BUT it's a keeper, 100% body healthy and will never let you down. And also, dudes don't find it very intimidating. suckers.

ha ha ha ha.
I figured that monkey picture might be more applicable if you max out all the settings by mistake at the critical moment.

and if your review applies to all women, i suspect menfolk will be obsolete as a gender in a few generations.

dorothy said...

Sparky said...

you know I lust after you too much to stay mad at you forever, dear.

I’m looking for a sexy (but powerful) vibrator to surprise my wife with. Reading these reviews with great interest! Toys are just so damn expensive. You and your male friend should try out a few toys for him and review those that work well for couple's play. I'd be very interested in that!

Marina said...

@ The Scarlet Veil. The We-vibe is a great heterosexual couple's toy and can also be used by a woman on her own. As a solo toy the Delight is definitely on our top 5 list.
