When you know that it is a full-sized vibrator that you want and you know that you like power. You’re ready for something more stylish and you’re willing to pay more than on your virgin runs. But you are still on a budget. This may just be the key to your search. The Key series by Jopen, makers of exclusive vibrators, is a fine range of toys that deliver class and good functionality, without breaking the bank.
Vela is the large-sized member of the series (12cm or 4.75” long). Even though there is another version, the Ceres, which is slightly longer (13.25cm, 5.25”) the Vela is wider at its most girthy point (4.5cm or 1.75”, compared with the Ceres which is 3.75cm or 1.5”).
The Key Vela is a beautiful looking device. The handle, which is subtly curved for comfortable grip and easy access to the control button, is made of glass-like coloured plastic. The handle is coloured to match the respective colour of the silicone that covers the large body of the vibrator – be it turquoise, pink or lavender.
The body is covered on the one hand with smooth, sensual silicone, and on the other hand has gentle ripples that add effect when rubbed along the skin. Altogether, despite the bulk brought on by the relatively wide and long shaft and the obvious colours, the Vela has a gentle charm which makes it unassuming.
My biggest complaint is with the need for 4 batteries. This is not great for the environment and even thought they are small (AAA-sized), it adds weight to the vibrator which becomes more obvious when used externally and the weight is carried by the wrist.
On the other hand, this is a very powerful machine. The power comes out in 7 different patterns to keep the play interesting. All that is missing is a gentle mode of use. As with other strong vibrators, the trick to orchestrating more subtle play, if you feel the need, is using it indirectly – through underwear or placed further away from the hotspots. Of course, this is good when it comes to external (clitoral) use but is not practical for internal use. So if you prefer gentle, best to try something else.
An unusual pleasure in such a hard working machine is how it remains so quiet. A sign of quality. Waterproofing is another quality that gives you extra options because you can use it not only to work up a sweat, but also while cleaning the sweat off.
