Review: Shunga Soyo
Another gift, another rabbit vibrator, and another endless pleasure. Only this time, I was testing something completely unknown, a vibrator I had never held in my hands before and never dreamed of. This is Shunga Soyo.
The name sounds familiar to those who have read articles on Japanese art. Shungas are small erotic images depicting sex. Although the brand name is Japanese and everything on the packaging gives you a clue that their vibrators were created somewhere under Mount Fuji, they are made in Canada. Twenty years ago, they started with intimate cosmetics, and this time they hit the Slovenian market with a series of vibrators. I had to choose between six of them and finally pointed my finger at Soyo because it was the most extraordinary. Its triangular-shaped clitoral attachment evoked the idea of its tip pressing against the clitoris and skillfully guiding you between the sensations of pain and pleasure.
The packaging in which the vibrator was resting was so beautiful that I would have thrown it in the garbage with a heavy heart. On it, you can first read the legend of the geisha Soyo, a master of her art. But, unfortunately, love came between. She exchanged her art for a gorgeous samurai. But their love gave us Soyo - the vibrator that rests beneath this legend. In addition to the vibrator, the package has an instruction manual, a storage bag, a warranty card, and a charging cable.
I stuffed the toy into the stretchy storage bag, which barely fits, read the instructions, ignored the warning that the vibrator needed to be charged before use, and went on a date to the other bed. After that, I may be able to use Soyo.
Although it's hard for me to concentrate on testing when I'm not in bed, I had enough time to at least review its looks this time. Soyo is covered in waterproof cranberry-colored medical-grade silicone (you can also choose between black, purple, and pink) and is adorned with two gold ABS plastic borders that visually separate the base from the insertable part and the clitoral stimulator. The head thickens towards the end and reaches a diameter of three and a half centimeters. The inner side of the 11-centimeter-long insertable part is textured, as is the head of the clitoral stimulator. There are four small buttons on the outside of the base. Two for switching on and off the motors in the insertable part and the clitoral stimulator, and two for switching between programs.
The first time I tested it, I used the lubricant. Finally, the insertion was easy, but my attention was elsewhere - on the clitoral stimulator. It was not the tip that should come in touch with my clitoris but the whole top surface. I was a little worried, as I didn't know if it would be enough for my increasingly spoilt little button. I had to try it out, so I searched for the buttons with my fingers, but they were so small that I could barely feel them. Reluctantly, I pulled the toy out and looked at the controls while the lube was dripping all over me. I pressed both bottom buttons, first one, then the other. If you hold them for eight seconds, the toy will lock (you unlock it the same way). The light came on, and I was ready to take off. I pushed the toy into the peach and moved my finger to one of the top buttons.
The vibrations of the first stage were gentle and quiet, but with just one press of the button, I realized that the power of the following stages would exceed my expectations. The volume, fortunately, did not. I was already melting at the third power level, and it didn't stop there. There were two more levels to the top. With one push on the on/off button, you will reach five strong patterns (fast pulsation, escalation, pulsation with cessation, combination of waves and pulsation).
Inside the peach, the vibrations were well felt, also on the vulva, which was pulsing under the pressure of the head. But it seemed that the clitoris wanted more, perhaps more point vibrations. At the end of the first trial, my pleasure turned into an effort to find an orgasm. I pulled out the insertable part to relieve the tension and placed it right next to the clitoris. Because of the shape of the base, the Shunga Soyo was not at all challenging to hold in place. On the contrary, it made my journey to orgasm even easier.
Although the first test was unsuccessful, I looked forward to trying it again. I suspected that my body was tired the first time, and my head was somewhere between seeking pleasure and focusing on the product features.
Safe in my bed, I booked a day for ironing the sheets and vibration massage. It was like holding an utterly different vibrator in my hands. I was overwhelmed by sensations I had not discovered in the first test. The vibrator stayed in place, in any position, and I also got extra stimulation for my clit with slight base movements. When I wanted to prolong the pleasure, I switched off the clitoral attachment and let myself feel the strong vibrations of the insertable part. Orgasms came like clockwork. The only hardest thing for me was to get used to the very responsive buttons that were too small to tell which one was which just by touch. But in the end, I managed to do that too.
Shunga Soyo, the interestingly shaped silicone geisha, is a vibrator that stimulates everything between your legs. The head gives you the feeling of fullness and provides a good grip. The vibrations are strong yet accompanied by a surprising silence. I was only slightly disappointed by the buttons, but everything else, including the accessories, left me speechless. The moment I switched off the vibrator, in my head, I was lying somewhere under the Japanese cherry trees.
