For a first heavy-duty vibrator, the Semilino does wonders. Inside its box there is a magnetic charger (making it really simple to charge), and an instruction booklet on how to clean and use. Fun Factory does not disappoint with it's controls/settings. The red "Fun" button turns the vibrator on and off and I was thrilled to see that you have to hold the Fun button a split second longer than you would think, which prevents it from accidentally turning it on when you don't mean to. However, it turns off with one fast click. It starts off on a very neutral setting in which you can choose to go more or less intense with the plus and minus buttons. Thank goodness that there are two buttons so you don't have to shuffle through all of them in order to pick something you want. It also doesn't produce an excessive amount of noise like some vibrators do. With the shower turned on it is almost unnoticeable. Overall this vibrator is pretty tame for long time vibrator users, but the highest setting still being very enjoyable. The ridges provide a very unique texture and sensation with the shaft being slightly curved to provide G-spot stimulation. The silicone material along with the softness of the shaft are very comfortable and it's very easy to use with any water based lubricant. The silicone also prevents any buildup of bacteria. The plastic handle allows for an easy grip whether you are inserting it or stimulating your clit. Also, did I mention that it's waterproof? So it's perfect for time in the shower or bath. My only caveat, which I've noticed with most Fun Factory toys when I see them on shelves, is the fact that it looks like they collect dust much more easily than other vibrators. However, it doesn't seem like too big of a problem once you bring your new one home, since storage and cleaning prevent any buildup of dust. This vibrator is excellent for the price and I would recommend it as a worthy addition to any collection. And even if you don't buy sex toys too often, this vibrator is definitely worth the couple extra bucks.
The Semilino left a little to be desired for such a high tech device. While it has all the bells and whistles I thought I couldn't live without, it lacks the power that previous battery-powered Fun Factory devices had it spades.
