via Amazon
via Amazon

What people are saying: “After almost four (4) years of wondrous service, our beloved toy, nicknamed Rabbit, finally broke. We were taken back when we saw it had only earned an average of 3 stars in it’s reviews. To us, the original jimmyjane “Form II” was a dependable source of stimulation that added tremendous pleasure to our interactions.

So, my first orgasm with Tux(we already have pet names for each other but haters will say I’m lying) happened after only 30 seconds. I’m not a screamer but HE made me scream. I couldn’t even control my body. I damn near slid onto the floor. I called out my own damn name it was so good. ANYHOE, I decided that I’d have to make sure that all research was done so, for scientific purposes I decided to schedule a 2nd date for later in the day. I mean, he didn’t wine me and dine me but he sure knew what he was doing. HOWEVER, that last time, the third time, I squirted. Like, it caught me off guard as hell. Like, I was cramping after that first time but NOW, I can barely hold air. That’s how weak I am. You might just see him as a Penguin with a beautiful tuxedo on but, we are in love.”Queen-Goddess

via Amazon
via Amazon

What people are saying: “My girlfriend and I love this toy! It’s extremely powerful and easy to hold. The tail end of it is an unusual shape, but we found that it’s extremely comfortable to rest your finger against and allows both partners to grip the toy easily in a variety of positions. The on/off switch is located in a good position and because you have to hold it down for three seconds to start the toy, you are unlikely to accidentally turn it on. The toy holds its charge really well and can easily be used for extended periods of time without needing to be recharged. It’s quiet enough that it can be used discretely — nobody can hear it, even if they are in adjoining rooms.” —Griffin93

It holds a charge for a long time, and gives you a nice “heads-up” when it’s about time to charge by a flashing yellow light on the bottom! No one wants their vibrator to die in right before the climax ? so that blinking light is a life saver. Couldn’t speak more highly about it! My previous ones pale in comparison. This gives deep vibrations, not just ticklish surface-level ones like the cheap vibrators have. Okay writing this review made me really want to use it, so gtg bye?? Enjoy!!”Ashley G.
