Before I get stuck into this review I want to tell you a little about the company who sent me the product. That company is Peepshow Toys. If you’ve ever checked out their site then you’ll have noticed that they only stock body-safe sex toys, lubricants, bondage gear and other sexy essentials. I did my first set of reviews for them recently and absolutely fell in love with them, their site and their philosophy. They are extremely helpful and friendly and I love that they genuinely care about what us as customers put in and around our orifices. If you are new to sex toys and are unsure as to which materials are safe and which are not, then head over to Peepshow Toys and buy yourself something fun with complete peace of mind that you’re not getting something that will potentially harm you. I’m also going to shamelessly plug the fact that you can now get 10% off site wide with my code “NatandTom”.
I think the shape of the VeDO GEESlim is one that’s well documented. Virtually every sex shop I’ve ever visited has had at least one similarly shaped vibrator stocked. The dimensions may be slightly different from place to place, but all of the ones that I’ve come across have been made from hard plastic, look as cheap and basic as the price tag suggests and take batteries. The GEESlim is like an upgraded, luxurious take on a classic and it comes in pretty colours. I mean who doesn’t need more turquoise in their toy box? It also comes in the obvious choices of Foxy Pink and Into You Indigo but I love that there’s another option for those who want something different.
It arrives in simplistic, minimalistic packaging as expected. A white turquoise box with a product shot on the front, description and diagram on the back and further photos on the sides. Inside I found the VeDO GEESlim resting within some soft black casing and the charging cable and product guide were tucked away underneath. It doesn’t come with any storage but that was to be expected at this price point. One thing that I will say is that it may have been better to pack it in plastic rather than fluffy casing as some of it transferred onto the material of the vibrator.
As it’s made from silicone, lint is expected to be attracted to it but that generally happens whilst out of the box, not when inside of it. Be sure to rinse it thoroughly before using it to remove any traces of unwanted matter like pet hair or fluff. It is submersible so rinsing is not an issue but make sure the base is screwed back on firmly before taking it near the water. After use, clean with warm soapy water and dry naturally. This is a hypoallergenic, latex free and phthalate free material. It’s completely body-safe but it tends to have some amount of drag to its surface. There wasn’t much resistance in this case as the silicone is silky smooth and soft. A coating of water based lubricant clears any friction up anyway.
The GEESlim is not one of those cheap battery-operated models that are sold everywhere. It’s actually rechargeable. To charge, unscrew the plastic base, place the jack into the port inside and attach the USB to your laptop or other charging station. A red light will turn on to indicate that the charge has begun and it will turn green once finished. There’s no estimated charging or use time listed in the guide so I’d have to guess based on my experiences and say an hour and a half to charge with forty-five minutes of use time.
A singular button on the base is in charge of all operation. Tap it once to start the vibrations, tap again to cycle through the functions and press and hold for a couple of seconds to turn off. It’s easy to understand and perfect for a first time toy user. There are ten functions to choose from. There are three constant speeds of varying intensity and seven different patterns. The patterns are not for me as I prefer constant speeds, but there is a good variety for those who are interested.
Measuring up at just under seven inches in overall length, there are roughly six and a half inches that could be inserted. This is a perfect length for me as it doesn’t hit my cervix (when I’m fully relaxed) but I could also use whatever length I don’t need as extra handle room. I tend to use around five insertable inches and would recommend others do the same so you can get a better grip on the toy. The cap isn’t very easy to hold onto so having a small area of shaft free makes a lot of difference in how I can use and move the vibrator. It has just under 3.9 inches of girth around the widest point of the head which is a diameter of around 1.18 and the shaft is roughly 2.5 inches around.
Vibration wise, I was expecting less than I got. I think the vibrations are roughly average in terms of strength. There’s nothing particularly impressive about them and I don’t think they have enough oomph to satisfy a power queen but this makes the toy ideal for those who don’t need mega intensity or simply want to get a feel for vibrations for the first time. I thought the first setting was rumblyish, which was nice, but the settings that followed become buzzier. I wasn’t suddenly pushed into a beehive or anything as the sensations were tolerable, but ultimately are not my preference.
Although I said earlier that I’ve seen many vibrators of this shape, I’d never actually tried one of them. I have looked at them before and if I’d seen this particular one back when I was just getting into sex toys and g-spot stimulation, I think I would have purchased it. It would have been ideal for me as a beginner. It has the bulbous head and curve needed for this type of play and the slim shaft that follows is great for getting used to the feeling of something being inserted. It doesn’t push many limits and I see it as a gentle introduction to the g-spot.
The GEESlim is quite firm which is ideal for g-spot stuff and something that I think is an essential factor for me personally if I want to potentially reach an orgasm. I discovered that thrusting was the best technique to use as the head could then batter my g-spot in all the right ways. It’s more of a bump and grind situation than a gentle caress and I’m totally fine with that. I need there to be a certain level of pressure applied if I’m going to get the job finished and I can get that with this vibrator. It felt lovely without the vibrations but those added sensations definitely helped bring me to the edge faster.
Do you need discretion because of your living situation or privacy fears? If you answered yes, then I’m pleased to say that this should be fine. It’s not silent, but it’s not mains-powered wand loud either. It is somewhere between the two and can be disguised if needed. If I closed the door to the room I’m in and turn on a playlist then no-one else in the house has a clue what’s going on. I have used this with people in the next room with no problems at all, just for reference.
Overall, I think the VeDO GEESlim is a top-notch, good-quality, affordable vibrator that is perfect for first time users. If you want to explore your g-spot with a toy for the first time then this is a great choice. It may not wow you if you’ve already got a lot of sex toys, but it is an excellent choice for those who are earlier on in their sex toy journeys and collections. We all start somewhere and this is a timeless toy that can take you on a basic exploration tour of your body. If you’re not sure whether this type of play is for you, this is an option that will allow you to explore without breaking the bank and dropping dollars on crappy vibrators. It took me back to basics and whilst it didn’t blow my mind, I think it could have done when I was new and not spoiled by the likes of the Lelo Mona 2 and the We-Vibe Rave.
