Ammovibes Mika Vibrator review

Update March 4th 2014

Beware when using the adaptor supplied with this, my partner got electrocuted last night. Really not happy and cannot recommend this product at ALL now.

The review

I was contacted directly by Ammovibes and asked whether I’d like one of their sex toys in exchange for a fair and honest review. I accepted, and chose the Mika vibrator, not just because I have a penchant for curly haired, piano playing vocalists, but because I liked the look of a dual stimulator. It’s very similar to a women’s rabbit vibrator at first glance, appearing to be an evolution from that branch of the sex toy kingdom.

Delivery was fast, professional discreet – and the product packaging is quite sleek and clearly marked. The overall white box is emblazoned with the Ammovibes logo, as well as an image of the product within. The side of the box gives you more details about the form and function.

The box has a magnetic closure but upon first receipt of the product there is also a hygiene label over this area, letting you know the product hasn’t been tampered with since manufacture and during dispatch and transit.

Inside the box, the Ammovibes Mika Vibrator sits inside its white, drawstring top storage pouch, above a hefty, multi lingual instruction book and surrounded by the magnetic charging lead as well as the USB to wall adaptor (UK) and international adaptors (US and EU).

The UK USB to wall adaptor is a standard type so you can use it for any of your USB to mains needs, bonus!

Removing the Ammovibes Mika Vibrator from the storage bag, what first struck me was the colour. Instead of the deep rose colour of the product on the front of the box, the Ammovibes Mika Vibrator is in fact quite a bright, garish, almost neon pink colour. I do dislike this colour for sex toys (it’s very “£4.99 jelly Chinese made vibe”, lacking any luxurious connotations) so I was quite disappointed about that.

I was also surprised that the vibrator wasn’t stabilised in the box, with an insert or similar, It could move around quite freely, albeit in the storage bag, but surely movement during storage and the postal service will cause the vibe to bang about in the box. The storage bag is minimal to no protection, really.

Nevertheless, the product itself felt quite nice, with a smooth, seamless silicone form and easy grip, ABS plastic handle in contrasting, clean looking white. The front of the handle has a triple buttoned control panel. More about this in a bit.

To charge up the Ammovibes Mika Vibrator you simply attach the magnetic, round area on the lead to the two metallic flat areas on the back of the vibe, and plug the other end either into any USB port, or use your included USB to mains adaptor plug.

As usual, I left the vibrator overnight, as rechargeable sex toys tend to take about 6-8 hours to charge on their first time. The booklet states that all Ammovibes sex toys come fully charged, but the power can run down since time in storage etc, and I didn’t fancy being disappointed by a ‘slowly grinding to a halt’ vibrator when it came to using it.

Oh, I also flame tested the material, it’s silicone. No damage to the material at all.

So yeah. Eventually, it came to testing time. To turn the vibrator on, you have to press the central power button. This is your on/off control. The button at the top controls the shaft and clit stim motors and the bottom button controls the motor lower down. In the handle.

Now at this juncture, you may be thinking what I’m thinking. A motor? In the handle? Why?

I’m afraid I can’t give you an eloquent answer to this question, for one simple reason. I really don’t know. Whoever thought putting a vibrating motor in the handle of a sex toy needs a stern talking to. My palm is not a source of sexual arousal for me, so please stop trying to stimulate it. I have inserted this sex toy and even just used it externally to try and figure why a motor in the handle would be a good thing. Perhaps I was missing something. Maybe I have a strangely deformed body.

But no. There is simply a motor. In the handle. Bewildering.

Still, perhaps the power carries through the toy and syncs with the other motors, in the shaft and clit stim, to make for an all round, powerful vibrator that would thrill me for eternity. Or a few years at least.

Taking a dash of water based lubricant (don’t use any other sorts of lube with this toy, you may damage the silicone material) I set about ‘testing’ this product.

There are ten functions to scroll through:

  1. Low constant vibration
  2. Medium constant vibration
  3. Highest constant vibration
  4. Ascending vibration
  5. Dot- dash pulse vibration
  6. Descending vibration
  7. Oscillating/wave vibration
  8. Dash-dash-dash pulse vibration
  9. Dot-dot-dot pulse vibration
  10. Dot-dot-dash pulse vibration

If you switch off from any vibrating setting, when you restart the vibrator you will be back at the first mode.

Another confusing choice on the part of the Ammovibes Mika Vibrator manufacturers is that you can’t activate both sides of the control at the same time. It’s one or the other. Seems very strange to me. I want full power, people! If there are two or three motors in your vibrator, let me feel all of them at once! Why the hell I would want to have a motor vibrating in my palm while the rest of the vibe sits in and against me feeling barely a residual pulse from it, is still confusing the hell out of me. Sorry, I don’t get it.

The Ammovibes Mika Vibrator is meant to have skin sensor technology which means that the vibrations get stronger when you insert the vibrator. I can’t say I felt anything different. I’ve tried every which way to try and figure out what the skin sensor is doing that’s so magical, but I couldn’t feel anything different from a ten function vibrator in and against me.

I say against me. We come to the clitoral stimulator problem. Due to the design of the Ammovibes Mika Vibrator, the shaft points backwards when inside you while the clit stim points not up, curving into you, but away from your body in the other direction. This means that when you come to try and use the Ammovibes Mika Vibrator like a rabbit vibe, you have to choose between either G-spot stimulation and enjoyable penetrative pleasure, OR clitoral stimulation. You’re not gonna get both at once, due to the shape. Position the vibe so the internal shaft feels good, and the clit stim is bolt upright, not touching the body. Move so the clit stim is against the clit, and the internal shaft tries to bust out of your perineum. It’s not a great design. Understatement.

The plus points of the Ammovibes Mika Vibrator is that it’s a waterproof, USB rechargeable, silicone, generously proportioned vibrator with 10 different functions. It also comes with a storage pouch, so there is that.

Unfortunately, for me, the combination of design flaws meant that I not only didn’t get much pleasure out of this toy and had to grab another, I was also left feeling very confused about the whole affair. If I’d have paid the £85.95 for it as well, you could add ‘slightly peeved’ (another understatement) to that feeling.

You can find the Ammovibes Mika Vibrator here at the Ammovibes sex toys site, priced at £85.95. Good luck.
