Review: Lovehoney Sqweel

 

lovehoney sqweel  Packaging

Sqweel comes packaged rather respectfully (with the exception of the words “a revolution in orgasms” written on the front, along with a description on the back) especially considering there is no nudity, derogatory terms, swearing or anything else that may be considered sexual or” rude” in nature.

Once removed from the cardboard slider you will find a metal tin that houses everything it comes with including the owners guide, a trial sized packet of Sliquid glycerine and paraben free lubricant (which is perfectly safe for use by females) and of course the Sqweel.

For those of you that are always complaining or asking about places to “hide” your toys, the interior velvet finished insert can be removed to make more room for other goodies like condoms, lube or any other fun things you own, should you want to make it your personal sexy storage box.

The Good

Sqweel consists of 10 small “tongues” that sit in a compact and easy to hold silky feeling black case, something I found myself curiously stroking over and over without even realizing. The tongues are made from high grade silicone making them hygienic, hypo allergenic, non porous (so they don’t absorb bacteria) and are latex and phthalate free.

If there is one thing I want to make clear about the Sqweel it’s that it is not a vibrator as it doesn’t actually vibrate.  Nor does it thrust or do anything you’ve most likely grown accustomed to when it comes to sex toys.

Instead, the product has an internal motor that causes the 10 little tongues to spin, mimicking the feeling of your partners tongue as it laps over your bits.

Operating the Sqweel is extremely easy; located on the handle  is a switch with four settings – off, low, mid (medium) and hi (high). To turn it on just switch it into any of the desired settings and it begins to spin. To turn it off just switch it to the off position and it quickly stops. Again I have to say how big a fan I am of products that allow you to turn them off in a split second, not only can they be great for saving one from an embarrassing moment, but they are also much easier on batteries.

As for the actual speeds, the low is just that – a very low spin. It’s great for foreplay or to start getting you used to the feeling and in the mood. The mid (medium) is quite fast and actually surprised me with how fast it was. The hi (high) well…lets just say I was scared it would lap my clit off!  Seriously, it’s pretty damn fast, especially when you insert new batteries. That said, I highly suggest you start on the lower speeds and work your way up, otherwise you might be in for a bit of a shock.

Suggestions & Tips

When it comes to using the Sqweel I have a few suggestions;

First, because it’s made of silicone and spins rather than vibrates it can create a bit of drag on the skin when in use. This isn’t something that’s going to be painful, but it’s most likely not going to be pleasurable either.  To keep this from happening I suggest you pour some lube on your hands then switch the Sqweel into its lowest setting and gently run the tongues over your hand as they spin. By doing this your going to be able to easily coat each one with lube which eliminate the drag on your skin when you’re using it. Then I also suggest you put a bit of lube on your clit as this will also help to reduce the drag.

Second, I suggest you do your best not to jam it against yourself or your partner as that will more than likely either slow it down or stop it. What I personally suggest is you pay careful attention to maintaining contact with just the tip of the tongues as that will offer the best form of stimulation.

As for ways it can be used, while it was created for oral sex (i.e. stimulation of the clitoris), don’t let that stop you from experimenting in other ways – it’s great for performing a rim job or to tease and taunt other areas of the body that you or your partner find arousing.

On that note I just want to say that I think the Sqweel is a great product for those of you that don’t like performing oral on your partner, (yes I know there are those of you who just don’t like doing it and that’s okay). What I suggest is you try to appease your partner (if that’s something they’d like) by getting them a product like this, which will mimic oral sex so that you don’t have to. I know it’s not the same thing, but it’s about as close as you’re going to get.

That said, I know there are many of you who don’t like the idea of oral sex for various reasons; you’re not comfortable with your body, vagina or vulva and don’t want your partners face “down there”, you don’t like the idea of it because you think it’s gross or you’re afraid of sexually transmitted infections. If any of those are the case, this is a great product as it eliminates all of those problems while still offering a comparable form of stimulation – since it’s so comparable it’s also great product for those of you that haven’t ever had someone perform oral sex and are curious about the way it feels.

lovehoney sqweel2Care & Cleaning

When it comes to taking the Sqweel apart so you can clean it, it’s as easy as using it; first remove the end cap by squeezing gently on the two sides (which will release it) and giving a little pull, then gently twist the side cap in a clockwise direction which will release it so you can remove it, then just pop the tongues out and you’re done.

As for actually cleaning it I would suggest washing the tongues with warm soapy water and rinsing well or using an anti bacterial toy cleaner. Keep in mind that the tongues are made of high grade silicone so they won’t absorb bacteria and don’t need a heavy duty cleaning. To clean the case just simply give the inside a wipe with a damp cloth, since this is the mechanical part I don’t suggest you allow it to come into contact with running water as you might ruin it. Then once everything is dry simply pop the tongues back into place, slide the side cap back into place using a counter clockwise direction and replace the end cap. That’s it, pretty simple.

Inserting the batteries is actually very easy as well, just slide the cover off, pop in 3 AAA batteries and slide the cover back on. As I said, it’s very easy.

The Bad

When it comes to things I didn’t like about the Sqweel there are only 3;

First is the fact that the tongues stop or slow down when too much pressure is added which can take you out of your state of arousal rather quickly. As I suggested above, this is something that can be easily remedied, but in the moment (and until you get used to using it a certain way) it can be rather annoying.

Second is the fact that it’s a rather unfamiliar sensation at first which can make achieving an orgasm a little hard. Now that’s not necessarily the fault of the product, but instead due to the fact that we are most often used to things that vibrate. That said, once you get used to it and allow yourself to relax it does feel pretty damn good and can help you achieve an orgasm. If you find it’s taking too long just use it for foreplay and switch to your fave toy when you’re ready and want to climax.

Finally, it’s not waterproof but then again there are a lot of products on the market that aren’t so I can’t really hold it against the Sqweel, especially considering it has so much else to offer.

Final Verdict

Personally I love the Sqweel for a few reasons; it’s very easy to use, cleaning and operating it is a breeze, removing the parts and  putting them back together is a piece of cake and it’s got multiple settings. Trust me, I’ve seen products that were much less revolutionary but harder to operate and insert batteries into, this is definitely not one of them.

As for the materials, it’s crafted from high grade silicone making it non porous, latex and phthalate free, easy to care, clean and totally body safe.

While the product does require a little getting used to, especially since it’s such a foreign feeling, I think it’s pretty amazing considering how close it comes to the real thing… sometimes even being better then the real thing.

One of the suggestions I'm often given by my viewers is to cover smaller toys... You know, one's that aren't...
