Oh, the Leaf Line! How I've lusted over them for a long time. They're high quality and just gorgeous, but I've put off owning one because they seem to be one of those toys where you either love or hate it. I'd like to thank Vibrator Kingdom for providing this piece of lovely for me to review! They are quickly becoming one of my favorite shops.
A little bit about it: The Vitality is part of SWAN's Leaf vibrator line. This particular one is a rabbit-style vibrator in that it has a clitoral arm and a vaginal arm. Each arm contains their own motor controlled by separate buttons. Arm 1, and what I think of as the clitoral arm, is just under 3 inches long, and flatter than Arm 2, which is more rounded and just under 3.5 inches long. the entire toy itself is roughly 5.5 inches long.
The Vitality is silicone, waterproof, rechargeable, is equipped with a travel lock (so it doesn't start to vibrate in your suitcase), comes with a precious storage bag, and is multi-speed. However, to change the speed, you press and hold the buttons. Just pushing them once turns the motor on and off. The vibrations themselves are not silent, but nearly so.
Packaging: The Vitality comes in a heavy duty cardboard box with magnetic closure. It's sort of classy minimalist. Well, a picture's worth a thousand cows. Or something. So here:
What I loved: First off, it's green. I mean the color. It's green! It's not any shade of pink at all! This, friends, makes me very, very happy. I know not everyone exactly loves green, but it's such a welcome departure.
I love the fact that the arms are controlled separately. Maybe I want clitoral vibration, but not vaginal, or the other way around. Or I want strong vibrations in one place, and slightly weaker in another. The separate controls makes it easy. Only two buttons makes it simple. The vibrations are nothing to sneeze at either, being a 4 out of 5 as far as strength goes.
Moving on. The bulbous handle on the end makes the Vitality ridiculously easy and comfortable to hold and move without my hands getting tired. I used the Vitality multiple times and never got any muscle cramps.
What I didn't: Although I tried--oh how I tried!--to orgasm with the Vitality, it is just not happening. The strength is fine, although the clitoral arm is a little buzzy, while the vaginal arm is more rumbly. But the buzzy isn't so terribly buzzy that it causes a big problem. The problem, it turns out, is that I can't use any pressure with the Vitality. Where the arms meet is just too flexible! As I get close to climax, I need to be able to increase the pressure of the toy against me. This is true both for my clitoris and my G-spot. The Vitality just bends away from me if I try to use pressure. For this reason, I can not have an orgasm with the Vitality.
Final thought: This is a fun and beautiful toy, but not being able to use pressure with it is a deal breaker for me. However, if you only need the vibrations and don't care about the pressure, then you will likely love this toy. It has a lot of really great aspects going for it. It's quiet, beautiful, and has decent vibrations. Being too flexible is my main concern, and it is unfortunately what makes the Vitality not work for me. Still, if you like your toys to be slightly flexible, then you may well love this one!
