The NEW iGino One

A while back, I was approached and asked if i'd like to review the new iGino One. As the concept of this new vibe had me so curious, I said yes and soon after received my very own iGino One.

It arrived in a plain cardboard box, which when opened, revealed a pretty white and pink pastel box bearing the iGino logo ...

Boxed iGino One

The lid simply lifts off the box to reveal your new toy ..and what an interesting one it is too!

Box contents

Included in the box are your iGino One, 2 different adapters, a USB cable, a velvety black pouch, some spare spongy spacers and a flower shaped spongy head to attach to the massager.

My first instinct was, wow, this looks just like a mobile phone/ipod ......great for the ultimate discretion! I imagined all sorts of scenarios as to when and where I could use my new toy and couldn't wait to get started.

The iGino is extremely easy to use. To charge, simply pull out the USB stick from the bottom of the vibe .....
Pull out USB

plug in the UBS cable and adapter then wait ....patiently! My first problem came here ......you charge the iGino for 12 hours and for that, all you get is 40mins play time!! It's an awful long time to wait for such a quick thrill!

Remove the lid and you're faced with a dome shaped nozzle ...this is where all the action starts!

Dome shaped nozzle

And a few foam attachments ...

Foam attachments

The choice is yours as to whether you leave the nozzle as it is, or you can attach the flower shaped squidgy foam attachment (the one on the left in pic) to the nozzle for a slightly different sensation. This attachment feels alot like the giant foam pieces that kids piece together and play with and in my opinion, not the most hardy of materials. The nozzle itself features VibraMoove which means that the head kind of vibrates from side to side rather than the usual rotation. One of my main problems with this is that the more pressure you apply, the slower the movement becomes ...even grinding to a compete halt if you push too hard!

The vibrations punched out by this little vibe are far stronger than I expected, and the shape of the nozzle means you can hit the spot with extreme accuracy. I (with manual stimulation included) managed to reach orgasm but I did have a problem with the noise generated!! My imagination was shot to pieces when I realised that all those scenarios running through my head before i'd operated the iGino would have to stay in my imagination ....no way could I use this anywhere remotely quiet as the noise that it omits is anything but discreet!! This, in my opinion, is it's biggest let down. I like my toys to be whisper quiet so I can have some fun without being found out. The iGino may as well come with a public invitation as you'll never get away with a quick private fumble.
Due to the lack of settings, i'm not sure i'd recommend this for a first time user as it is pretty strong ....so much so that after around 5 mins, I began to feel a little numb down below!

Here's a quick video (with my poshest Geordie accent) to demonstrate the volume of the iGino .....make sure you've got your speakers turned on but careful if you're in a public place!!

Overall, I loved the quirky design of the iGino, especially since it's so different from everything else on the market. The nozzle gives off good vibrations which are pretty strong and easy to direct straight to your sweet spot. I'd quite like to have been able to alter the strength/intensity of the vibrations but maybe that's something to think about for future products.
Cleaning was a little more complicated as the iGino isn't waterproof/splashproof so you have to take extra care not to submerge in water. I managed to clean it with wipes but every once in a while, I like all my toys to have a 'proper' clean for hygiene purposes. Unfortunately, this is a bit fiddly as none of the parts disconnect.
The velvety pouch looks and feels a little cheap. I'd have preferred it to be a little more luxurious in feel and less likely to pick up as much fluff/dust.
I love the idea that it's rechargeable as it saves the age old problem of battery finding .....I never have enough of them and when I do, my kids always seem to beat me to them!
The price of the iGino will be around $99. I personally find this a little high for what you get but everyone's different.

I think there's a few things which could be improved with the iGino, but the concept is fab! It is slightly fiddly to keep hold of whilst roaring through the throws of passion due to the rectangular shape but I didn't struggle too much. The thin design means that you're meant to be able to place it between yours and your partners body to give an extra kick during lovemaking ....this didn't work at all for me as I couldn't get it to 'hit the spot', it turned out more farcial than erotic!

While the iGino may not be for me, you may find that you love it!

Although I received this product free of charge, this in no way affects the opinions in my review which are all my own.
