After having reviewed the original G-vibe, I was very excited to get the chance to review the G-vibe Noir. It was also nice to see that the company was making an effort and taking steps to improve their product, based on their customer’s feedback. I have noticed some significant changes to this product, compared to the original. The vibrations are better, the material is better (as far as firmness and flexibility), it’s completely waterproof, and it’s even quieter.
The G-vibe Noir is a very versatile toy, and just like the original G-vibe, the Noir also comes with detailed images showing you the different ways you can use this toy. I actually appreciate the images that they provide. Not only are they fun to look at, but they really can be helpful at showing you how to use this uniquely shaped toy. You will see that this toy can be used internally and externally, both anally and vaginally, it can massage the G-spot and the P-spot, and it can bring pleasure to both men and women.
The G-vibe Noir is made with the same high quality silicone that they used with the original G-vibe. It’s hypoallergenic, phthalate free, free of unpleasant smells, and completely body-safe. Around the handle area you will see a shiny silver, and that is made of an ABS plastic that is also body-safe.
The silicone material is silky smooth, and I love the way that it feels. Your fingers literally just glide across it. When comparing the original with the Noir, I did notice that the Noir is a lot more firm than the original. The original has some squishy-ness to it that the Noir does not. The prongs on the Noir are also not as flexible as the original. Personally, I happen to love both of these changes. The change in firmness and flexibility allow more pressure to be applied when inserted.
Shape / Size:
As you can see in the picture, there are no physical differences when it comes to the shape of the G-vibe Noir compared to the original G-vibe. They both have the same unique shape, and the measurements are also all the same. The G-vibe Noir is a total length of 9 inches from top to bottom, and just over 6 of those inches are insertable. It’s 4 1/4 inches in circumference, and the flexible prongs do a great job at giving you that full feeling. Whether or not these measurements will be good for you, will all come down to personal preference. I think those that really like girth, will enjoy the feeling of this toy.
The G-vibe Noir is a USB rechargeable toy. You can charge it on your computer, or in an outlet with a USB charging adapter. The charging port is located at the bottom of the base, and if you have the original G-vibe, you will notice that the charging port no longer has the silicone flap over it. Instead, it’s just a tiny hole in the silicone. I actually find that to be an upgrade from the original, especially when it comes to waterproof worries. It doesn’t come with anything telling you how long to charge it for, but I only assumed it was the same 8 hour charging time of the original. After checking the toy often during use, I noticed it really only took 6 hours until the charging light was solid. A light flashes while the G-vibe Noir is charging, and once the light is solid, you will know the toy is finished charging. On the Fun Toys website, they state that you get 4 hours of use with a full charge. It has varied for me, and I think that it’s going to vary on the intensity level and pattern usage. I get anywhere from 3-4 hours of use time with each charge.
Fun Toys has really up’d their game when it comes to the vibrations of the Noir. The vibrations are rumbly, stronger, and deeper. That’s just the way I like them. I didn’t think the Noir was buzzy at all, which is a great difference from the original G-vibe. There are still a motor at the tip of each prong, but Fun Toys has kicked it up a notch and added a third motor into the shaft of the toy, increasing the vibration level a lot. Just like the original, the G-vibe Noir offers 6 different vibration patterns for you to choose from. I have included a picture that I found on the Fun Toys website, showing the different vibrations patterns.
There are three buttons on the base of the toy that power the toy and control the vibration patterns. The top + button powers the toy, and can be pressed 10 times, taking you through different intensity levels of vibrations. The bottom – button decreases the intensity, and then powers the toy off. The middle wavy button is the pattern button. This button takes you through the 6 different vibration patterns. Overall, all of the buttons are very easy to press, and the controls are very user friendly and easy to understand.
Keeping It Clean:
The fact that the Noir is completely waterproof, is a huge improvement. You may not be able to boil it or put it in the dishwasher, but you can get it wet with no worries. So not only can you clean it with ease, you can also bring some fun into the shower or bath. You can clean this toy with soap and water, or your choice of toy cleaner.
Packaging / Storage:
The G-vibe Noir comes packaged in a fancy box that may be hard for some to just throw away. The box itself works good for storage purposes, but there’s also a pouch included to store the toy and the charger inside. I have decided to keep the box, and use the storage for traveling purposes. The pouch is very spacious, and it fits both the G-vibe Noir and the charger perfectly inside.
I’d like to personally thank FunToys for the chance to review the G-vibe Noir Special Edition. If you’re interested in purchasing the G-vibe, you can do so by visiting their website and contacting them directly.
