The first thing I loved about Eve was the way it was packaged; there’s nothing on the box that’s rude, crude or embarrassing. There is no nudity, scantily clad models in suggestive positions, nor any wording that might hint at what it is. The outer packag
e is clear with the pretty leaf and bullet sitting nicely against a lovely purple designed backdrop inside. Sure it looks a little boring, but considering the packaging will most likely be tossed out (or easily recycled) once the product has been removed, who cares.
*On the bottom it says “intimate massager” but it’s in very small writing and since it looks nothing like a sexual wellness product, it would most likely leave someone guessing as to how it could be used “intimately”. View a picture of the packaging here.
For someone who’s rather used to seeing products that come in a typical phallic shape/design, it’s rather refreshing to find one that’s so unique as Eve. With that in mind, I don’t think there is any other way to describe it than to say it’s a thin fig leaf – because that’s exactly what it looks like – a pretty, purple, palm sized fig leaf.
*I can honestly say it’s one of the most discreetly designed products I’ve ever seen.
While it’s a rather “firm” product that’s neither soft nor squishy, it is extremely flexible with both the upper half and two sides flexing to comfortably fit your body. On that note, it’s not at all rough, instead being velvety soft to the touch.
*when held upright, the top of the product flexes forwards and backwards, the two sides likewise flex forwards and backwards much like a butterfly’s wings would.
If there is one thing I am adamant about when it comes to products I’ll recommend it’s that they must be body safe; fortunately Eve is made of body safe Elastomer making it phthalate free, latex free, hypo-allergenic, hygienic and anti-bacterial. Unfortunately it’s slightly porous so you’ll want to make sure to clean it thoroughly.
In regard to the stats: Eve measures 4 3/4″ in total length, 3 1/2″ in width, is paper thin and only weighs 3.4oz. It’s not too big, nor too small, being the perfect size to fit ones hand without feeling weighed down or uncomfortable.
For those of you curious as to where the vibrating bullet goes: located on the underside of the leaf is a cover/space the width of a pinky finger, simply slide the micro bullet under the cover (with the on/off switch facing the edge of the leaf) and you’re done.
Operating the bullet is extremely simple as there is only one On/Off switch to worry about. Switch it one way and it begins to vibrate at a moderate speed, switch it the other and it turns off. I have to be honest and say how much I love the fact that it’s so easy to use – especially considering how powerful the tiny micro bullet is for its size.
*it comes with batteries already inserted so you can use it the moment you get it 😉
Like a lot of the other products I’ve recently reviewed I was very pleased to see that it was almost whisper quiet. Sure it makes noise, but it’s hardly anything to worry about: no on in the next room would hear it and to be honest, I highly doubt the person lying next to you would hear it either (especially if it’s muffled under the blankets).
If you’re looking for a product that can be inserted, I suggest you keep looking as the SinFive Eve is only meant for external use (think the nipples, clitoris, vulva, balls, penis, anus, feet, erogenous zones etc.). To be honest, even if you wanted to – because of its design, I have no idea how you could insert it.
That said, the bullet could possibly be inserted, though due to its tiny size I wouldn’t really suggest it as removal could be a tad awkward. If you’re dead set on inserting it, only do it vaginally (not anally) and I’d suggest putting it inside a condom first to make removal much easier.
As for ways it could be used comfortably;
1.) If you’re someone that likes a mild to moderate vibration, one that’s neither too strong nor too subtle, Eve is great for clitoral stimulation. The raised ridges on the bullet holder feel rather nice and the product it self is comfortable to hold onto.
2.) Because of its shape and design, flexibility and ability to “fold” it’s fantastic for stimulating the vulva.
3.) For those of you that need clitoral stimulation to achieve an orgasm it could easily be used during intercourse to either pleasure yourself, or you could have your partner pleasure you.
4.) When it comes to foreplay the product is fantastic for helping to generate a sense of arousal, especially when used on erogenous zones like the neck, inner thigh, nipples, back of the knee or wherever else makes your heart flutter.
5.) Its great for stimulating males: you can easily perform a hand job with one hand while pressing on his perineum with the Eve (or vice versa). If he likes having his testes played with, the product makes it very easy to “cup” them while the vibrations tease either the front or underside. I asked my partner what he thought of it and he said it was “nice, not too strong, but enough that (he) could feel it. It was soft and didn’t hurt but something that took a minute to get used to“. When I asked him if he liked it he said “it’s better than some other products we’ve tried, and it was a nice change from a regular old hj/bj combo“.
6.) If you’re prone to headaches, acute muscle cramps, or suffer the pain of carpal tunnel (like I do) Eve is wonderful for gently massaging the affected area, while also providing a relaxing vibration to help.
Every so often I come across a product that makes me think “now that’s something more products could use” such is the case with when it comes to the care and cleaning of Eve, especially considering it’s germ-resistant, anti-microbial and self cleaning. Aside from a simple wash with soap and warm water, you really don’t have to do much.
Unfortunately the micro bullet isn’t waterproof so I suggest you wipe it down with a damp (not wet) cloth and let it air dry.
The SinFive Eve runs off the power of 2 watch batteries and depending on the bullet you get, changing them could be either very easy, or slightly challenging. I was rather fortunate to get one that was easy to change: simply slide off the end cover, use something with a thin or pointed edge (like a metal nail file) to pop the batteries out, put the new ones in, slide the cover back on and you’re done.
*I say it may be challenging based on the various reviews I’ve read, with some people having a hard time getting the cover off. For me it slid of very easily, though I’ve seen people struggle with theirs.
When it came to things I didn’t like there were only a few and like most of my negative comments, I don’t really think they’re all that bad:
1.) It’s not the most powerful product, yet the vibrations are still nice and fall somewhere between the mild to moderate zone.
2.) It can’t be inserted, however considering the fact that over 70% of women require clitoral stimulation to get off, I don’t think it’s a bad thing.
3.) I don’t know how much use the bullet holder can handle before one of the corners possibly tears. Mine is still intact, but I’m always nervous it’ll rip in the heat of the moment.
4.) The batteries may be difficult to find, especially if you don’t want to shop online. Watch or technology stores would be your best bet.
If you’re looking for a product that’s discreet, easy to use, moderately powerful, fits comfortably in your hand, is easy to care for and clean, doesn’t make much noise, is body safe and free of dangerous chemicals, offers fantastic clitoral stimulation along with a way to tease and taunt the erogenous zones, isn’t complicated and full of whizzy features or buttons, comes in “respectful” packaging and isn’t something that could cause embarrassment – all at an affordable price – I don’t know what else to say but look no further: the SinFive Eve has everything you need!
