I know what you might be thinking, “Why another rabbit vibrator?” Particularly if you consider all the challenges they bring. You may even be asking yourself “Is she a glutton for punishment?”
The quickest answer to that is, no, I don’t intentionally use rabbit-style vibrators to appease my inner masochist. Although I do have submissive tendencies. I don’t particularly enjoy solo, orgasm denial via rabbit-style vibes that are poorly aligned with my genital configuration. Not my idea of fun, at all.
Yet, here I am, determined to turn over a new leaf. Blame my new found pollyannish perspective for this reignited need to soldier on, in my quest for the elusive “Goldilocks of Rabbit-Style Vibrators”.
You know the one I’m chasing. It’s the one that’s “not too much”( i.e. not too short, not too weak, not too long) of any number of potentially orgasm interfering roadblocks. You get the picture. I mean when you’re talking sex toys, a few centimeters can feel like a uncrossable abyss.
I’ll admit it, I may be chasing a dream, yet I hang on to the hope that I’ll be able to find the needle in the haystack. Fingers crossed, the FiFi by Je Joue, melds with my anatomy like Cinderella’s foot with the infamous glass slipper.
What’s In A Name
Admittedly, it’s hard to take a sex toy seriously with a name like FiFi. The name is not something I’d usually associate with a sex toy. Maybe my Great Aunt’s little, white, Yorkshire Terrier, but definitely not a vibrator. Especially, the well-crafted, rechargeable, silicone, luxury vibe we’re discussing here. Odd choices, like this one, really make me wonder, “How do sex toy manufacturers name their products?” This may remain forever one of life’s little mysteries.
I was able to look beyond the name and give Je Joue’s FiFi a fair shot. Cutting right to the chase, the Fifi didn’t turn out to be “The One”, but let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater. It has a few redeeming qualities and comes closest to winning the coveted crown so far.
Are You The One?
The silicone Je Joue used in the FiFi’s construction is pretty draggy and does need a hefty amount of lube to use comfortably. There’s nothing noteworthy to report about the silicone beyond that. What is worth mentioning, and something I found relevant to my pleasure response, is the hardness of the shaft. It’s hard and unyielding, perfect for applying the right amount of pressure to my g-spot. While the “rabbit ears” of the clitoral arms are flexible, which aids in achieving comfortable placement. I for one, don’t enjoy feeling like my clit is in a vice, and the ears have just enough give to be comfortably snug.
Along with the hardness of the shaft, I also found the insertable length ideal at five inches. This, combined with the perfectly swooped shaft, and bulbous tip, make for some superb g-spotting action. So far so good, right? I loved the motors in both the clitoral arms and the shaft. Though they are a tad on the loud side. I would even go so far as to describe the vibrations in the clitoral arms as thudy. Little powerhouses of pleasure. They are also the ideal length for targeting my clit. They actually reach their mark. No insurmountable voids to work around here.
Surprisingly, internal vibration is something I find myself warming up to lately. The FiFi also took me in another unexpected direction, one that goes against my usual usage preferences. Oddly, I found the patterns far more pleasurable than steady vibes. Speaking of vibrational modes, Je Joue created the FiFi with 7 different pulsing patterns, each with 7 escalating levels of strength. All of which are controlled by the 3 buttons on the base of the vibrator.
Along with the usual + and – buttons, used to increase or decrease the vibrational strength, you’ll find a central button. This one, you press to change the patterns. Something worth noting when you turn the FiFi off and back on is that you are automatically returned to steady vibrations. Or in other words, the last setting in use before turning it off is not saved.
Almost Doesn’t Count
The buttons are my biggest point of contention with the FiFi. They are the only thing holding me back from bestowing the title of “My Goldilocks Rabbit Vibrator” upon the FiFi. The button set up is just not intuitive enough and they require a lot of pressure to activate. When trying to use “blind”, through touch alone, I found myself fumbling a lot and frustrated by them.
So, even though the FiFi helped me achieve some amazing, dualistic orgasms, and ultimately has a lot going for it, I’m still not certain it’s “The One”. Close, but we know what they say about close, “It only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.” That means the search will continue.
