Showing the Vr1

The Jopen Vanity Vr1 is a vaginal exerciser and vibrator sold by this sex shop I trust. This silicone, waterproof vibrator and vaginal exerciser includes two different bulbs at about three and a half inches long with the larger bulb having a diameter of slightly over an inch. The vaginal exerciser also includes a retrieval string to pull the exerciser out after use.

The packaging for the Jopen isn’t quite befitting of the price. The Vr1 comes packaged in a cardboard box that has a cardboard lid that lifts off. The tray it comes sitting in is made of cardboard as well. This box is okay for storage, but it comes with a large storage bag that is large enough to fit the charger, the toy, and any choice of lubricant you want to keep with it. The packaging isn’t really what you’d expect from a toy of this price, but it does hold the toy just fine if you want to store the Vr1 in that box. The exerciser also includes an instruction book.

The neat technical aspect of the Vr1 is that it’s a mix between a vaginal exerciser and a vibrator. It has the two bulbs to make it a vaginal exerciser, and the vibration strengths actually depend on how tightly your vaginal muscles grasp the exerciser. Basically, you get rewarded for squeezing the material of this vibrator even stronger. The vibrator can be locked, so if you like, none of the vibrations will turn on at all as well.

So what are the different parts of this vaginal exerciser? The little bulb is purely a ball of silicone. There are no moving pieces inside the ball, and it isn’t squishy at all. Inside this ball is the motor for the vibrations, so all of the vibrations come from the little ball. The connecting piece of silicone is very flexible and allows the two silicone bulbs to bend really nicely. The larger bulb is the control center for your vibrations. There is a lock button (very hard to see unless you own it and press around on the vibrator) near the retrieval string that basically functions as the on/off for your vibrator and changes the settings. This vibrator is amazingly sensitive to touch and strength, but the sensor does not run all the way around the silicone. The sensor is only on the top-portion of the vibrator. There’s a very easy-to-push, large vibration “button” that basically runs the entire side of the large bulb. When this plate is pressed down, it turns on the vibration. The other half of the vibrator doesn’t control the vibrations at all. This means that, if you are having a problem getting the vibrations to turn on, you need to readjust the vibrator into a new positions inside you.

The Vr1’s settings are some of the most unique settings I’ve ever seen on a vibrator. They are unique enough that you definitely need to read the included instruction manual, and I rarely say that about any vibrator. Normally you just charge it then turn it on, but this one has a couple different modes that aren’t very intuitive. Make sure to read the instructions before taking this out for your first use or you may find yourself very disappointed.

For one, this vibrator comes locked. This means that it isn’t draining battery and it won’t accidentally turn on. Using the lock function on this vibrator is VITAL. When it’s not locked, the vibrator is receptive to touch, and as such, it drains the battery. When it’s not locked, the vibrator also will vibrate if anything is placed on top of it. (It even was vibrating inside the closed box when I forgot to lock it and subsequently drained in it a couple hours.)

The most-used function you’ll probably use is the “Exercise Mode”. This is where, if you squeeze, the exerciser will vibrate. It will only vibrate when you’re squeezing; the vibrations stop after the squeezing stops. In order to use this setting, just make sure to press the lock button for four seconds to unlock it. Once it’s unlocked, this is the default mode. While in this mode, the LED light will blink once in awhile to let you know it’s working. It also will be sensitive to touch, so squeeze the vibrator once to make sure it’s on Exercise mode before inserting it and expecting it to work. The vibrator is not one-speed; if you squeeze harder, you will get stronger vibrations. This vibrator is pretty sensitive to the squeezing, so there are some really gentle vibration settings.

The other function of this vibrator is “Pleasure Mode”. This mode requires forethought (and reading the instructions) as it’s not intuitive nor is it easy to use while the vibrator is already inserted. In order to use this mode, you need to have it in “Exercise mode”. From there, you use your hands to squeeze the vibrator strongly enough to go to the wanted level of vibration. Once you’re there, you hold down the “lock” button for a second, and the vibrator will continue at the set vibration speed. The “lock” button is very hard to reach while the vibrator is actually inserted, so this is something that has to be done before you insert the vibrator. Once it’s inserted, there’s really no way to turn it off either until you remove the vibrator.

Sometimes, I did have a hard time getting the vibrations to turn on. It just depended. If the vaginal exerciser had moved too far up, it would get too far away from the strongest of my muscles, and nothing would actually turn on the vibrations since what I was squeezing wasn’t the sensors. This could get frustrating quickly. However, with some smaller adjustments, it’d be possible to get it to turn on much more easily. It didn’t become too much of a problem, and as long as it’s in the right place, it only seems to take a small amount of tightening to get it to turn on. It actually, surprisingly, gets tiring very quickly just because it’s really tiring to continually clench your vaginal muscles. (For reals. It is.)

The vibrations can be strong, but you probably won’t be able to access the strongest of the levels while in use. It can definitely be hard to make the stronger levels work during use with the pressure. The vibrations are pretty buzzy, though, and it is not rumbly at all. It’s definitely very surface vibrations. It also can be a bit loud; the vibrations are loud enough to be heard during use on the higher settings – even when inserted. The lower settings can’t be heard though, but since this is (presumbly) to be used throughout the day to “reward” yourself for doing kegel exercises, having the vibrations be able to be heard is a bad thing. It’s not “oh my god” loud, but there is definitely a slight buzz in the air on the higher settings.

Cleaning is easy with this silicone vibrator and vaginal exerciser. Since it’s waterproof, you just have to use warm water and anti-bacterial soap to clean it. It could be sterilized by using bleach, but I think this is something you’ll just want to keep to yourself anyway. It’s compatible with water-based lubricant, and I highly recommend you use a lot of lubricant before insertion to make it comfortable to keep in. I’ll be keeping my Vr1 in the storage bag that comes with it as the box is a bit big. It’ll be keeping it locked as well to avoid draining the battery.

Overall, the Vr1 is a pleasurable vibrating experience. It’s not perfect, and sometimes it can be a bit finicky and hard to work, but for the most part, you’ll easily find that the Vr1 is a neat mixture between vibration and exercise. If this is where the future of vaginal exercisers is going, I’m very happy to see what’s all going to be out there. I purchased this egg vibrator at EdenFantasys for my Jopen Vanity Vr1 review.
