They said it couldn’t be done. There wasn’t a company anywhere that could design a dual stimulating vibrator (rabbit vibe) that would fit my freakishly proportioned vulva1. I had come to accept my fate… that I would never know the joy of single handedly stimulating my G-spot and clit at the same time. And then, there it was; beckoning me to try once more… the Jopen Vanity Vr 5.5. I wavered and struggled with the decision to review it. Would it be just another failure? Was I agreeing to write a review that was doomed from the start?
Well folks, I am happy to report that Jopen has achieved what I thought was impossible. The Vanity Vr 5.5 does indeed reach my G-spot and clitoris at the same time. And not only that – it also manages to get me off. I can’t believe that I am now able to say this but, I’ve found a dual stimulating vibe that I can actually recommend. But who can I recommend it to? Our vulvae are all so uniquely different that I can’t promise anyone that the Vr 5.5 will work for them. But I can say, if other rabbit vibes have left your clit high and dry, the Vr 5.5 has a pretty good chance of reaching it.
When I was offered the Vanity Vr 5.5 for review, I really wasn’t sure I could accept it. I even explained my past experiences with dual stimulators, just so they’d know going into it that, this could be a difficult review. So before I agreed, I researched a few reviews and it was this one that convinced me to give it a try. When I saw how flexible the clitoral arm was, I felt pretty confident that the Vr 5.5 could succeed where others have failed.
I was thrilled the first time I inserted it and the clit arm settled perfectly into place. Then I turned it on and was amazed at the rumbly dual motors. With both motors running in unison, the entire vibrator hits a resonating frequency that makes the combined vibration feel so much stronger than either motor feels on its own. Individually, the motors aren’t exceptionally powerful but it’s when they’re both running that the magic happens.
In addition to its ingenious form, Jopen did something else with the Vr 5.5 that I had longed for in a dual stimulator. They made each motor independently controlled. Want strong vibration on your G-spot but mild vibration on your clit? You can do that with the Vr 5.5. Maybe you just want vibration on your clit and none at all on your G-spot. You can do that too. I love having this kind of control over a rabbit style vibrator. Having said that, for me the Vr 5.5 feels best with both motors cranked up on high.
At first, I wasn’t really sure how to best use this vibrator. There’s no right or wrong way to masturbate and what works for me may not work for you but thrusting with the Vr 5.5 (or any rabbit vibe) doesn’t really work out for me. Obviously, as you thrust, the clit arm comes off of your clit momentarily and that just doesn’t get the job done for me. I finally figured out that if I sort of leave the Vr 5.5 in place and pump the handle up and down, the clit arm remains on my clit. It actually slides up and down on my clit as I pump the handle which replicates how I normally use clit vibes. And as the clit arm slides up and down, the head of the shaft repeatedly pushes into my G-spot. When I get this motion going really fast, with the dual motors running full throttle… orgasms happen. And that makes me a happy girl.
For all the really smart things Jopen has done with the Vr 5.5 there is one thing I have to complain about and there really is just this one thing I don’t like. The handle is just too short. It needs to be longer so I’m not straining to reach it and I have more to grab onto when I pump it up and down. Because it’s so short, my hand gets kind of crampy when I’m trying to keep my grip on it. So if Jopen ever makes the Vr 5.5.1, I hope they give it a longer handle.
The Vanity Vr 5.5 has two buttons, one for each motor. You press and hold to turn them on and as you continue to hold, the vibration ramps up in intensity. I really prefer this incrementally adjustable vibration to other vibes that have preset levels of intensity. You press the button again briefly to turn it off and that can get a little annoying sometimes because if you’re just trying to increase the intensity a little bit, you end up shutting the motor off. Then you have to press and hold to ramp back up again to where you wanted it to be but after awhile you do sort of get a feel for it and you don’t inadvertently turn it off as often. The Vr 5.5 has no patterns so, if that’s your thing, you might want to look elsewhere. This vibrator comes locked from the factory and to unlock it, you press and hold both buttons for 4 seconds and you can re-lock it the same way.
I like that the Vr 5.5 has a seamless design2. By that I mean, it’s all silicone and even the buttons are beneath the silicone. There are no places where one material meets another to create a seam for gunk to hide. Combine this with the fact that it’s fully waterproof and it’s very easy to clean. Soap and water always works or, you could use a toy cleaner. If you need to sanitize it, you can bathe it in a 10% bleach solution. The silicone has a velvety matte finish that creates a small amount of drag, that’s easily fixed with a bit of lube. It’s always the safest bet to use water-based lube with silicone toys because some silicone-based lube can damage some silicone toys. I do however, often use hybrid lubes like Sliquid Silk which have a small amount of silicone in them. These are usually safe for silicone toys but it’s always safest to spot test any lube containing silicone.
Charging takes about 3 hours and I can’t find any documentation from Jopen on how much run time you’re supposed to get3. While charging a light comes on near the charging socket and it turns off when charging is complete.
The Vr 5.5 is about 7 inches long, total. Without flexing the clit arm there are only about 2.5 inches from it to the end of the shaft. When fully deflected, there are 4.5 inches from the clit arm to the tip of the shaft and it rises about 2.5 inches above the shaft. The thickest part of the shaft is 4.63 inches in circumference. The handle is only about 2 inches long.
You can only get the Vr 5.5 in one color – purple. It’s the same color as all of the other Vanity vibrators. If you are outside the US, you can find this vibrator made by Swan. It’s called the Silhouette and it’s pink. Everything else should be the same. The packaging is a little chintzy for a luxury vibe at this price but you do get a storage pouch. Jopen covers the Vr 5.5 with a one year warranty.
You just don’t know how happy I am that I’ve found a rabbit style vibrator that works for me. I was beginning to feel like I was missing out on something and it kind of bugged me that I couldn’t recommend one. The Vr 5.5 is absolutely a vibrator that I can recommend, especially for those who’ve found the clit arm on other dual stimulators too low to reach their clit.
Not only does the Vr 5.5 fit me like a dream, it gets me off fairly easily. It’s a nice change of pace to be able to use one hand to stimulate my clit and G-spot simultaneously. I think the Vr 5.5 is deserving of its high price tag as it appears well made, it’s body-safe and it has moderately powerful dual motors. Cheap rabbit vibes with animal shaped clit stimulators aren’t even in the same league with this vibrator. So, if those kind of crappy vibrators have let you down in the past, the Jopen Vanity Vr 5.5 might pleasantly surprise you.
