Review: Gaia Eco
In April, spring starts awakening, buds are opening, and green leaves cover the trees. In this awakening, I was also reached by the green eco-friendly trend announced for 2022. Lush Gaia Eco was the first known vibrator made of biodegradable plastic.
Although in the article Green, how I want you green, I wrote and argued that eco vibrators are more expensive than the pollutants prevalent in online stores, I bought a Gaia Eco G-spot stimulator for a ridiculously low price. Although the sale has already expired, the vibrator remains a low-cost toy.
Judging by the package I received, I wouldn't pay a dime more than I did. The box was the smallest so far. Even my oldtimer, my first vibrator, was bigger. It reminded me of the packaging of sunscreen for the face.
When I struggled to open it for a while and then successfully tore it, a small vibrator fell out. Vibrator and nothing else. I expected more from the 'eco' package. Ideally, a USB charging cable and a storage bag made of used plastic, for example. At worst, at least a charging cable. When I realized that there was only a Gaia vibrator, it dawned on me that it was a battery-powered toy, and of course, the AA battery wasn't included in the package. While looking for it, I thought all that was eco-friendly was the vibrator's size and the starch-based Biofeel bioplastic.
So far, I've heard all about how harmful batteries are to the environment, and I had a hard time accepting that I had to use them with a Gaia Eco vibrator.
The toy measures about thirteen centimeters in length (a good ten can be inserted), and it ends with a thickened and curved claw for better G-spot stimulation. The plastic is not entirely smooth; it is superficially made in some parts. As I slid my finger across the surface, it was serrated. It was barely noticeable, but it was there.
I opened the lid, removed the plastic wrap, and installed the battery. Which end of the battery needs to go where is nicely marked. I pressed the power button, but nothing happened. Then, when I already thought that I had turned it upside down despite the good markings anyway, I got lucky, and the vibrator gently purred. The first vibration level was really quiet, as promised on the websites.
Before it was swallowed by the peach, I tested the toy on the clitoris. The feeling was pleasant, and it was immediately clear to me where Gaia would end up if it didn't get along with the peach. The clitoris was satisfied with the first, second, and third vibration stages. They got louder with each level, but I was comforted by their power. When Gaia finally got permission to go on a hunt for G-spot, the vibrations got weaker. I only felt well the fourth and fifth vibration stages. The insertion was easy: even before I could count to five, the whole vibrator was already in the peach because of its length. The handle became slippery, and the bulges that allowed for a better grip no longer helped my two fingers, which were the only ones still clinging to the toy.
Also, I couldn't avoid accidentally pressing the button due to the short base. As a result, I inadvertently came across pulsating patterns. Luckily there were only five of them, and I quickly found my way back to the third, fourth, and fifth stage of monotonous vibration.
The claw of the toy was still trying to reach a feeling that would show me the gates of heaven. I moved it from left to right, up and down, but everything I tried was unsuccessful. Finally, it was time for me to call in the fingers of the other hand, which pressed against my clitoris. It was only then that I reached orgasm. In subsequent experiments, Gaia performed much better as a clitoral vibrator, as it has not been able to find a G-spot to this day.
Gaia Eco is a vibrator in which the "eco-friendly" overshadowed all the other characteristics of a good toy. Like my prvi vibrator, only in a different dress. Advertisements praised it to the sky, but it came down from its high horse after testing it. I expected more from the package, and in the context of an environmentally friendly vibrator, I was most disappointed with the use of batteries. The toy is cheap, quiet, and offers many levels of vibration power, but on the other hand, it is short, small, and does not achieve the desired effect.
