Those of you that have been following my blog or twitter stream will know that even before I had the DeLight in my hands I held a world of expectation. From the moment Dr Eve shoved its buzzing wonderfulness between my legs at the 2009 Sexpo, I have coveted the DeLight. Did this little toy disappoint?
5 - BOOM!
4 - Indecently delicious
3 - It's getting hot in here
2 - Something to play with
1 - I'd rather use a toothbrush thanks
What it is
The DeLight is a vibrator brought to us by Fun Factory. Like most sex toys it’s cool to use with your partner, but in my opinion, the shape lends itself better to single person fun.
How it works
Sporting what the FF calls the ‘Royal Curl’, this little gem takes minimal effort to use while you’re lying on your back. Resting your arm on your belly, you hold onto the top part of the curve while the bottom half slips easily and intuitively into your vagina. No weird angles, no uncomfortable stretching. The bottom tip is bendable but firm enough – and knobbed enough – to do what it’s intended to do – stimulate the g-spot, while the ‘s’ curve fits over your clitoral zone and nicely between your labia, stimulating the entire area.
What it does
This little gadget vibrates like a mofo – 8 speeds, with the top speed being quite an experience – and then it also freaking PULSATES (3 speeds).
What I thought of it
Sometimes I just want to lie in bed with the DeLight snuggled in my vagina with that lovely curve resting between my legs. Sometimes I do just that. It’s an incredibly ... how do I put it ... gentle toy. It’s got all the oomph of penetration and the sexiness of feel against your clit but with none of the carnival freak-show look about it that some toys have. It’s sexy without being porno and I like that it busts the myth that all good penetrative vibes have to be phallic. In fact, my delight is a ‘she’.
But looks aside. Did it get me off? Hell yeah. I don’t think you could put this little honey on buzz within a few centimetres of your vagina without feeling the happy. I loved the variety of vibration settings and it was quite a treat getting to the last setting (it’s very fast – a real little ooh-la-la). And the pulse setting? Left me lying in my own wet spot.
Ultimately I feel incredibly comfortable with the DeLight, like I can really relax into exploring my vagina and what gets me off. The song that comes into my mind when I think about me and my DeLight? Juuuuust the two of us...
The not happy
The curve itself is maybe a little tighter than I expected so it’s a really good thing that the tip is bendable otherwise there’d be no allowance for different body shapes. Or g-spot placing. The ratio between the clit-stimulating knob and the g-spot curve is also debatable, but as the whole toy vibrates equally well along its entire body this isn’t really a problem – ie your clit won’t be left unattended if you penetrate further.
The speed controls are also a little bothersome. Because your thumb is directly over them as you hold the device it’s easy to accidently press a button you don’t want to press. This can be very unfortunate if you’re on pulse and about 5 nanoseconds from coming and your thumb slips over the little minus button.
So it takes some getting used to easily shifting between speeds and settings, especially while you’re in the moment, but I found that lots of practise has cleared that issue right up. Oh how I love my homework.
Do I think you should run out and buy it now? Yes. Or at least once you've saved up some pennies. It is pretty pricey – but it's a keeper, 100% body healthy and will never let you down. And also, because of the shape, men don’t find it very intimidating at all. Suckers.
1. Made from medical-grade silicone and plastic
2. Click ‘n charge (there's a rechargeable one that comes in a little case of its own)
3. about R1 100 (though this depends on where and how you buy) and the ‘self charging’ one is quite a bit more expensive
4. I’m not the only one thinking it’s one of the prettiest vibes around. In 2008 it won the Red Dot Design Award, in 2009 it took silver at the Focus Open and was nominated for the Designpreis 2009, in 2010 it won the IF Product Design Award and won the Top Design Award and in 2011 has already been nominated again for this year’s Designpreis Deutschland.
All toys and lube are supplied by Whet Sensuality emporium.
