If you're new to my blog, about every couple of weeks, I review a sex toy from a senior perspective.
What's a "senior perspective" and why do we need it?
Because our need for long, slow arousal necessitates a vibrator that doesn't overheat, run out of battery charge, or burst into flames if we need to use it for a long time. We want sex toys that don't strain arthritic wrists. We want to be able to see the controls without having to put on our reading glasses. Above all, we need intensity: strong vibrations. We're battling our (lack of) hormones, people.
So I review sex toys from this senior perspective. I welcome your comments, whether you agree or disagree. I'm just one person, and our preferences vary. Whether a toy works for me may depend on "fit" as well as preference, and it's useful for all of us if you post your own experience in the comments section. (Email me if you have trouble with that and I'll walk you through it or post it for you.)

This week, I'm reviewing the tiny but mighty MiMi. This clitoral vibrator from JeJoue, available from Babeland, rests easily in your palm, covers your clitoris and labia sweetly, and -- though I haven't tried it this way yet -- is just the size and shape to slip between bodies during partner sex to provide clitoral stimulation.
MiMi has a smooth, matte finish that provides just the right balance between glide and a little "tug" for friction. It's rechargeable: attach it magnetically to its charger ahead of time, then just enjoy it -- no batteries or cords to fuss with during use. It's even waterproof!
The controls are at one end and easy to access during use. I found them a bit difficult to press -- you have to bear down. That may be good, because it prevents accidentally turning it off, which is an annoying problem with some toys!
Cycle through the "+" and "-" buttons to discover five intensities and five different patterns. You know me -- I go for the strongest intensity, steady rhythm. I liked that the vibrations were rumbly rather than buzzy, and for a tiny vibrator, they're pretty strong!
Be careful to avoid getting lube on the controls, which makes them even more difficult to use when slippery. I found that just wiping the controls with a dry washcloth after lubing the toy and myself took care of that problem.
My MiMi is a pretty rose color. It's lightweight and small enough for travel -- just 3-1/2" by 2-1/2". It's quiet for a vibrator, too -- just play some soft music at the same time, and no one in the next room will hear Mimi. (I can't promise they won't hear your pleasure sounds, though.)
MiMi comes in a pretty box for gift-giving.
