Have you ever seen a dual stimulator with nubs on each arm before? Because I hadn’t. When I spotted the Javida Nubby Vibe with Clit Stimulator on Orion’s website I was rather curious. I wasn’t sure what to make of this vibrator initially but I just knew that I had to try it for myself and find out what those nubs felt like. I was itching to know. I had tried one other Javida product before, their heated massager, so I knew that I had a good quality product on the way but I didn’t know whether the nubs would be fun and stimulating or uncomfortable and boner killing material. Read on to find out whether the nubby was a painful experience or a pleasurable one.
The packaging was similar to what I encountered before, it just had a different colour scheme. There’s a black and red box that is decorated with floral graphics and features key product information in the back and sides. The front of this box has a magnetic flap that can be opened up to reveal the vibrator behind a window of plastic which is a lovely touch. Inside, I found the vibrator, generic instruction leaflet and the required charging cable. My only complaint is the lack of storage bag as I think that’s a must-have extra once the price tag reaches £50+.
Javida’s Nubby Vibe is made from hypoallergenic, non-toxic, body-safe silicone and the handle is made from a robust abs plastic that has been coated with polyurethane. This just makes the handle softer and more comfortable to hold. This toy does not contain latex or phthalates and seems to be well-made and nicely designed. I was once again impressed with the feel of the silicone as the incredibly smooth surface feels delightful to the touch and has the smallest amount of drag possible. It should be used with lubricant for comfort regardless of the amount of drag it has or hasn’t got and this should be water based as to not degrade the silicone. Neither the box nor the website description mentions whether this product is waterproof so I haven’t risked it and have been cleaning it with antibacterial toy wipes instead of soapy water.
So this vibrator is rechargeable via USB. I placed that end of the cable into my laptop and attached the magnetic clips on the other end to the corresponding prongs on the rear of the Nubby. Whilst it is charging a red light will flash on the control panel and this becomes steady once complete. It takes roughly an hour and a half to charge the device fully and this is said to provide around forty minutes of use on the highest intensity and around sixty minutes on the medium to low functions.
There’s only one button on this toy so it’s really simple to use. The button is located just under the clitoral arm and needs to be pressed and held for three to five seconds to turn the vibrations on. A light will turn on once the toy is in use. Tap the button again to cycle through the various settings and press and hold it down for a few seconds to turn off. There are ten functions to choose from. Three constant speeds of varying intensities and seven patterns.
I think this is one of the smallest dual stimulators or “rabbits” that I have in my collection at the moment. It is 7.2 inches in overall length with an insertable shaft of around 3.9 inches. This is pretty short for an internal arm as most are around the four and half to five and a half-inch mark.
Having said that, I think that this makes the Nubby a very viable option for a beginner. I generally don’t recommend this type of toy to someone who’s just starting out as I think you need to know your body and anatomy well to find the ones that work for you, but if you’re a beginner with a similar layout to my body, then I’d point you this way. It has a maximum girth of just under 3.9 inches which is pretty slim and manageable.
Dual stimulators are completely anatomy dependent so I wasn’t shocked at all when the fit of this one wasn’t the best that I’ve encountered. I know that shorter external arms are generally a good bet for me as my clitoris and entrance are quiet close together and I don’t need much length to reach it. It rests at just about at the right spot although an extra inch or two of length would have made the arm line up perfectly. It sits covering half of this sweet spot as it is which means I can’t get maximum sensation from the vibrations or texture. This leaves me with the feeling that I need more and I can’t shake it off. As a result, the Nubby feels underwhelming and half-hearted.
It is disappointing that this is the case as I cannot fault the internal arm. It has everything I could want. A bulbous head, angled shaft and enough firmness to satisfy the inner diva of my g-spot. The nubby texture provides some extra stimulation and feels wonderful when using it in a circular motion to massage the g-spot.
The first setting was rumbly which is my preference and I could find myself getting along with this one. Unfortunately it didn’t have the amount of power I needed on the lowest intensity so I turned it up and then a swarm of buzzy, higher frequency vibrations erupted.
I don’t think these settings feel terrible, but I’m not fond of the buzzing as I find it distracting. I ended up using the rabbit without the vibrations with the internal arm working on my g-spot and a strategically placed We-Vibe Tango working on my clitoris. I could orgasm like this just fine. I tried again a few days later with the vibrations on and found myself being more tolerable of the internal vibrations on that occasion. So I now feel like I will be able to use this occasionally as intended but only on days that I’m not feeling over sensitive and have already penetrated with something else beforehand. I couldn’t just jump in with this if I hadn’t used an internal toy for a week or so as my g-spot would be too alert to cope with the buzzing.
As the Javida Nubby Vibe has two motors, I was expecting it to be noisy. It wasn’t. Even if I used the highest intensity, the sound could be easily drowned out with a duvet and a closed bedroom door. I wouldn’t and don’t mind using this when others are present in the house so for that reason I’d be happy to point people who need discretion in the direction of this nubby little number.
You can purchase the Javida Nubby Vibe with Clit Stimulator (€54.95/£50.65) from Orion. I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!
