Jimmyjane Form 6: versatile, elegant, waterproof vibrator

What makes a vibrator worth $185? Granted, that's a lot of money for a vibrator. The Jimmyjane Form 6 Waterproof Rechargeable Vibrating Massager is a luxury item, a sexy gift for the sensual woman in your life (maybe yourself!), and it gives a lot back for that price.

It's lovely, one of the prettiest vibrators I've ever seen. It's sleek, sensual to the eyes and to the touch, shaped for a variety of uses, and... drum roll... waterproof -- you can take it into the bathtub with you!

The unique shape lets you use any part of it -- the plump end for clitoral stimulation, the smaller end for G-spotting, and the whole thing for rolling or pressing wherever it feels good. The two ends vibrate independently and have separate buttons for increasing or decreasing intensity. There's also a vibration mode button for six different types of vibrations -- steady, pulsing, surprises, and so on.

A couple of caveats for our age group -- although you can find the buttons by feel and don't have to look to change vibrations (a good thing, because you'd need your reading glasses to see the controls anyway), they require a firm press. If you have arthritis, you'll want to find your favorite setting and leave it there rather than making full use of the variety. It's powerful, but not as strong as some others I've tried. (I think I should make a comparison chart for you.) So if you require really, really strong vibrations, this might not be enough for you. One of these days I'll write a whole post about combining sex toys -- for example, inserting Form 6 to rev up your G-spot while using a different vibrator for clitoral stimulation, or vice versa.

The Form 6 (they could come up with a sexier name, don't you think?) has a handsome and discreet recharging station/ storage box. It's lockable for travel, so it won't set your suitcase vibrating as it comes down baggage claim. (Aside: A woman I know told me that her suitcase came open and all her possessions including her vibrator came rolling down the conveyer belt piece by piece. The impact turned on her sex toy and it was vibrating noisily. She didn't dare claim it (or the dingy bra splayed for all to see), though her blush might have given her away. Anyway, that can't happen with the Form 6.)

Good news: As of this writing, Good Vibrations has the purple version of this $185 vibrator on sale for $135.
