Zumio S Spirotip Clitoral Vibrator Review

Thorough review of the Zumio S Spirotip Clitoral Vibrator by Tigerlily

Pinpoint accurate orgasms in record time from a device that supposedly mimics a human finger and was actually designed by women? Yep, that’s the Zumio S.

The Zumio S retails for $140 direct from MyZumio.com. Thanks to Zumio for providing the Zumio S for review, and for allowing us an explosive orgasm in record time. (Those are always appreciated.)

What’s in The Box?

You’ll find the Zumio S Spirotip Clitoral Vibrator beautifully presented inside a dual-layer rigid cardboard box, along with a thin outer sleeve explaining the main features.

As well as the Zumio S itself, a charging dock, USB cable, and storage pouch is included. You’ll need to supply your own power adaptor though. An old phone charger should be fine, or any USB port on a computer.

Curiously, the My Zumio site also indicates the inclusion of a protective cap to cover the tip of the toy when not in use; we didn’t find one in our box, but it’s possible this is a recent addition to the package.

For best battery life, ensure it’s charged fully before first use. Simply plug in the USB cable and drop the base of the Zumio S into the inductive charger. A small LED will slowly pulsate yellow to indicate it’s charging. Zumio doesn’t offer a stated battery life, but we haven’t exhausted the battery yet after a week of use.

Whisper Quiet, Waterproof and Washable: The Zumio S Design

Made in Canada, the Zumio S has a… distinctive design. By which I mean it looks like an electric toothbrush, right down to the way it sits upright in the inductive charger. This isn’t a particularly attractive look for a sex toy to have, in my opinion. It’s a little too surgical.

On the other hand, this might be a positive aspect of the design for you, if you’re accustomed to having intrusive family and friends around. It could easily be dismissed at first glance, looking nothing at all like your average vibrator. No one would be any the wiser.

The Zumio S Spirotip Clitoral Vibrator is mostly made of solid ABS plastic, as is the charging dock it sits in. The tip is made of firm translucent silicone, wrapped around a hard ABS core. The upper half of the toy, where the buttons sit, is also covered with a skin of light purple silicone. The toy is completely sealed, so it can easily be washed or submerged in water. Both ABS and silicone are body-safe materials; they’re non-porous, so they can’t harbour bacteria.
Full marks for materials, then.

In use, the Zumio S itself is the quietest toy we’ve ever played with, emitting only the lightest of high-pitched buzzing that would easily be dampened by a door or duvet cover. It’s doubtful you’ll be able to stay silent though, so that should probably be your biggest concern!

Using the Zumio S

The Zumio S is designed for external use only. Not because putting it inside would be painful or would break the toy, but just because it probably wouldn’t do much. Rather than producing a vibration, the tip of the Zumio oscillates in small circles, though you wouldn’t know to look at it given how fast it happens.

The Zumio S Spirotip Clitoral Vibrator is the smaller sibling of the Zumio X model, which Cara reviewed last month. While well-received by many, some felt even the lowest setting of the Zumio X model was almost painfully intense. The Zumio S not only lowers the overall intensity of motor, but has added a large, slightly squishy silicone tip to increase surface area and disperse the strength of the oscillations.

There are two ways you can tweak the intensity and level of stimulation provided by the Zumio S. The first of course is to use the buttons to turn it up or down. There are eight levels of intensity, and not a lot else. There’s no patterns or waves, just a single constant stimulation.

The second way to adjust intensity is to simply push the tip harder to the point of contact. The tip itself doesn’t contain a motor; instead, the long arm attaches it to a motor held elsewhere. So by varying the pressure exerted on the connecting arm, the intensity of the tip changes. Counter-intuitively, pushing harder actually decreases the intensity, as you’re spreading the stimulation over a larger area. However, I’d advise against pushing too hard; with such a small connecting point to the main body of the toy, continued pressure over a period of months would likely break it.

Zumio Orgasms

I swear my wife is getting more sensitive as time goes on, because every new toy we try seems to send her to orgasm a little faster than the last. She was sceptical than anything would work as well as a decent magic wand or the delightful clitoral suction of the Satisfyer Pro (as reviewed here), but the Zumio S Spirotip Clitoral Vibrator delivered. Within a minute (and accompanied by a little internal stimulation), she was screaming at a level one can only describe as a flagrant disregard for an entire neighbourhood of sleeping children. The sheets were absolutely sodden. It was evidently the most mind-blowing orgasm she’d ever experienced.

… And yet, she claimed to have thoroughly hated it.

Even on the lowest setting, her feedback consisted of: “Too buzzy. Too quick. It’s just boring”.

Huh. That certainly wasn’t the feedback I was expecting.

Of course, you could keep yourself edging for longer. For my part, I’ve found it more enjoyable to tie her down and use a bit of tease and denial to draw out a Zumio orgasm for half an hour or more. It’s a fun tool to have in the arsenal for sure. It’s an absolutely brutal one though, offering a degree of fine orgasm control previously unknown to me.

So yes, the Zumio S is incredible, but perhaps it’s too good?

For what it’s worth, the Zumio S can also be used on penises, though less effectively. I found it felt best just under the glans; right at the tip was just painful. It couldn’t make me orgasm, but it’s certainly a unique sensation for a little variety in your play sessions.

Are You Ready for the Zumio S?

The real question you need to ask yourself is whether the Zumio S Spirotip Clitoral Vibrator is worth it.

We recently picked up a £20 mini rechargeable wand to replace our aging AC-powered original Hitachi, and to be honest it’s far better than we’d expected (and that any £20 toy has the right to be). The vibes are just as deep and rumbly, and it’s easier to clean without that grotesque detachable PVC/foam head thing (Hitachi owners will know what I’m talking about). Motor efficiency has clearly come on a lot in the last decade.

Retailing at £140/$140, the Zumio S is five to ten times as much as that mini wand. So it would be remiss of me to not compare the two.

And if I had to be honest, the buzzy experience of the £140, designed-by-women, pinpoint accurate, “Spirotip” motion of the Zumio device… is simply inferior. At least, for us it is. The unique oscillations at the tip happen so fast that we couldn’t really tell you if they were making a spiral motion or not. At that sort of speed, everything just merges in one buzzy tingle.

Please don’t misunderstand me though. The Zumio S is awfully good at getting you to orgasm. You might really like that sort of surgical precision. But for us, it’s just too good, to the point of being detrimental. And that’s having been redesigned because the original Zumio X was deemed too intense by many.

Our verdict: 7/10.
Zumio S feels like a surgically accurate orgasm inducer (and looks like one, too).  It works … but maybe too well.
