Close2You Allegro Vibrator

Close2You Allegro Vibrator

The Close2You Allegro is a plastic vibrator made by Close2You and sold by EdenFantasys. It’s a clitoral vibrator, and it’s about five inches long with a width of about three inches. It features a small, non-rolling ball on the underside of the vibrator which is supposed to make it easy to achieve pinpoint stimulation. The Close2You Allegro also is rechargeable, and it features eight different vibration patterns.

The packaging for the Close2You Allegro is really nice and comprehensive. It comes in a box that includes two pull-out drawers. One tray includes the Allegro vibrator sitting in a foam tray while the other drawer includes the other accessories that the Allegro comes with: lubricant, a cock ring, cleaner, the charger, instructions, and a storage pouch.

The design of the Close2You Allegro is pretty basic. It is a plastic vibrator, so the entire vibrator is very firm with no flexibility to it. If you grew up with those computer mouses that had the ball on them (Do they still make those?), you might expect the vibrator’s ball on the bottom to roll, but it doesn’t do that. It actually just stays firmly in place. The rest of the vibrator is just as rigid as the ball is, but the ball on the bottom does have a shinier quality to it than the rest of the vibrator which seems to be a bit more matte in plastic. The design on the top doesn’t have any grip-py qualities to it, but the two buttons on the top of the vibrator are made of silicone versus being made of plastic. Along with that, the charging port plug on the bottom of the vibrator is made from silicone as well.

As previously mentioned, the Allegro vibrator is rechargeable. It charges via the port on the bottom side of the vibrator. There is no charging light while the vibrator is charging which is slightly annoying, but it does seem to finish charging relatively quickly. It’s very easy to plug-in, and it’s very easy to remove from the plug-in after charging as well. If you have other Close2You toys, the charger is the same to charge all of the sex toys which makes it easier to keep track of the chargers.

Controlling the Allegro Vibrator is simple, and it has eight different vibration patterns. There’s a dedicated on/off button (the one with the power symbol) while the other button cycles through all of the different patterns. The on/off button is harder to press, but I don’t mind it as it means I’m less likely to accidentally turn it off during use.

The vibrations are probably my biggest downside about the toy. I was actually pretty excited about the design as the clitoral ball looked like it would be fantastic while the shape of the vibrator looked like it could be cupped against the body really well. However, the vibrations are extremely, extremely buzzy. This leads to them, with pressure is applying, getting pretty hard to feel. It sounds like they should be intense, but they really are not, and they are definitely on the medium side of soft.

This leads to the noise issue: the Allegro vibrator is surprisingly loud. Almost like a medium appliance – it’s that loud. it’s not QUITE as loud as the Hitachi vibrator, but it’s certainly getting close. It can definitely be heard in the same room, and it probably could be heard outside of a closed door. If you need to be discreet, the Allegro vibrator is probably not the best choice for you.

The biggest issue with using this just seems to be the way the whole thing was created. With plastic vibrators, I normally expect the vibrations to be stronger than silicone vibrators because silicone usually absorbs some of the vibrations. With this plastic one, it just doesn’t seem to ring true. Something about the design is really muffling the strength of the vibrations, so by the time they hit the surface of the toy, they are on the soft end of the spectrum.

The second issue seems to lie in where the controls were placed. The controls are directly on top of the clitoral ball which is where the vibration originates. This means that your fingers are literally holding the toy right on the vibrating part. It makes your fingers pretty numb pretty quickly while just trying to hold the toy, so I switched over to holding it at the base of the toy near the charging port. This, however, leads to the fact that I can’t “cup” the vibrator against myself like is usually expected with clitoral vibrators.

To clean this clitoral vibrator, you’ll want to use warm water and antibacterial, non-abrasive soap. The Allegro vibrator is supposed to be waterproof, but I do recommend watching where you place the vibrator in the stream of water because the charging compartment does come open. As it’s full plastic, though, it’s pretty easy to clean which is nice. It’s compatible with all types of lubricant, and it can be easily be stored wherever you want as plastic doesn’t pick up lint or hair. It does come with the storage baggie if you want to keep the vibrator there though.

Overall, the Allegro is not something I’d recommend to someone which is sad because I think the actual shape and functions of the vibrator are good ideas and well-done. However, the buzzy vibrations that are hard to feel mixed with the loudness of the vibrator makes it not as good of a choice as some other vibrators.
