Ever been in the middle of flogging the dolphin and thought to yourself, “This just isn’t cutting it anymore?” Well, I most certainly have and it was a very dark time in my life. Having been basically forced to click my own mouse for several years just to get off properly, I had become afraid to go all out on a high-priced sex toy right out the gate. I mean, what if I didn’t like it? What if I ended up wasting a bunch of my money? What if I loved it but couldn’t use it correctly? So many questions, so little time. I eventually settled on the fact that I need to start out slowly by picking up a disposable pleasure product instead. That’s when everything changed.
Like an old boyfriend, it’s always nice to throw something in the trash when it no longer serves you. The best part is that disposable toys provide that kind of freedom without all the lost interest and squandered investments that come with bad relationships. The only trouble is finding the right one. Depending on what you’re looking for, there’s probably something out there waiting on you to buy it. As for me, I landed on the Disposable Finger Vibe and happened to find it very intriguing to say the least. So, was I blown away by my re-entry into the sexual revolution or did I sink back into my sick, sad hole of self-loathing? Well, let me make sure you’re clear on what I’m talking about here.
What is the Disposable Finger Vibe?
The Disposable Finger Vibe is exactly what it sounds like: a vibrator that you can slip over your friskiest finger and then throw away when you’re done. It’s made primarily for pleasuring the female form, although anal play can be enhanced with it too. Designed with the average body in mind, its ergonomics and user-friendly conception have made it one of the hottest-selling finger vibes in the nation – second only to top-rated products with an already established fan base and versions of the same kind of toy that are not disposable. In any event, this tiny thing packs a bigger punch than most people would think, making it ideal for solo missions, couple’s play, group therapy and pretty much everything in between.
The Main Features
The Disposable Finger Vibe has a lot more features than you’d expect from a teeny, tiny throw-away sex toy. First of all, it has a single vibrating motor that’s integrated into the shape of the device itself, meaning you don’t even know it’s there unless you look. Plus, that very same motor runs off of a battery with a 40-minute lifespan, giving users more time to play, explore and experience to their heart’s content. And because it’s sold by a relatively unknown company, the price tag is pretty amazing too, with usage costs coming in at just under 11 cents per minute.
Aside from the economics, this unique disposable toy has great ergonomics as well. Not only is the tip slightly tapered and rounded but it’s also curved to reach the sweet spots more easily. The skin-safe material, which is a mixture of non-latex, non-phthalate rubber jelly and TPE, features a uniquely tantalizing texture that’s full of little bumps for friction and ideal for both newbies and experts. The main component is held together via a squishy pouch-like loop that fits snugly over the finger for better control. And with a comfortable, travel-friendly size of just 2.25 inches in the length, there are virtually no limits to the things you can do with it (besides take it in the water because it’s not submersible).
What Comes in the Box?
Most of today’s top sex toy manufacturers include a freebie or two in the box with their main product. However, fewer brands are doing that these days in an effort to funnel more of their capital into production and feature procurement. Things are getting pretty amazing out there, but with the change comes a new responsibility for the average pleasure product purchaser. The Disposable Finger Vibe may be cheap and “trashy,” but that doesn’t mean it’s worthless. Apparently, the manufacturer didn’t think it had anything to prove because here’s all you get for the money:
- The device
- An instruction leaflet
Notice how the maker didn’t throw in any lube samples, sex toy cleaner or disposable wipes? It’s obvious we’re playing with a bunch of pros who assume we all have plenty of that stuff stashed in our closets somewhere. They may be right, and their well-funded project may have turned out great, but it still would have been nice to get a couple coupons for more products or a spare battery for a second round…or something. Then again, this thing is one of the least expensive pleasure products on the market so I honestly don’t know why I’m complaining.
My first experience outside the sexually deprived cave I had been living in was certainly one for the record books thanks to the Disposable Finger Vibe and it’s magnificent murmuring. I’m just not the type of gal who goes shoving huge dildos into my pussy because I haven’t been laid in a while. I like to take things slow, lay back, enjoy the ride. And that’s exactly what this little machine helped me do. In fact, I never threw it away even when the battery died. It was THAT good.
The toy comes in a compact package with pretty much nothing else – naked, just the way I like ’em. That kind of thing doesn’t bother me though. Besides, I already had some leftover lube from the weekend before when I tried to have kinky sex with the bartender from the pub down the street. My bad idea left me without a proper orgasm, but it also left me with the supplies I needed. So, I kicked back and slathered some of it on my new toy before turning it on to see what it could do (and boy could it do a lot).
Although I started with a little external stimulation (AKA: Clit play), I eventually worked my way up to shallow penetration using the bendy curve of the toy. I was able to stick my finger just inside my pussy where my g-spot hung out. The constant pressure mixed with the powerful rumbles of the vibrating motor and the slight texturization of the device was a terrific trio. However, I wasn’t able to get off more than two or three times before the battery went dead. That’s when I realized I had to either bury the toy that saved me from myself or use it in a creative way. After all, it was the dimensions and materials that made this thing so great in the first place.
Since then, I have used the DFV at least a dozen times (usually after work on Fridays) and I’ve never really missed the vibrations. It’s a pretty smooth ride if you know what you’re doing, and vibes aren’t always necessary to stimulate an orgasm. This tiny toy has certainly paid for itself in more ways than one, that’s about all I can say without sounding like a corny spokesperson or something.
The Ups and Downs
You’d be hard-pressed to find anything on the sex toy market that’s perfect or ideal for every user on the planet. Start looking in the disposable category and things can take a turn for the worst, plus there are just as many options in that group as there are in the other. At some point, we all have to swallow our pride and realize that things simply can’t be perfect 100% of the time. As for masturbation and/or intercourse while using the Disposable Finger Vibe for the first time, these are the things I think you need to know the most:
- Small and discreet design
- Comfortable finger loop for improved action
- Curved and tapered end for easier insertion and clitoral stimulation
- Soft, flexible texture for optimal pleasure
- Can be used even after the battery dies
- Made from skin-safe materials
- May not fit all finger sizes
- Not submersible in water
- Only one vibe speed available
It can be tough finding a good disposable sex toy, especially one that’s geared towards pleasing the female body. Furthermore, tracking down a decent couples-friendly product that can be easily thrown away after it’s been used is virtually impossible. So, I was more than happy to find and use the Disposable Finger Vibe for the first (second, third, and twentieth) time. The small, discreet packaging and the powerful vibrating function made it perfect for a wide variety of experiences, plus I particularly appreciated the fact that it can still be used for direct pleasure even when the battery is dead. Overall, it’s a great sex toy to have around for a rainy day. And if you don’t find it appealing, you can always throw it in the trash because that’s what it was designed for anyway.
