Out of the Toy Box

Jimmyjane Form 4 Vibrator

 

Form 4 Vibrator Good Vibrations offered me a chance to review the new Form 4 from Jimmyjane and I was really excited. Believe it or not, this is my first Jimmyjane toy and I’ve heard a lot about them and their quality so I couldn’t wait for it to get here. The Form 4 comes in either black or pink and I might have squealed when I opened the box and discovered that I got the pink one – I have a bit of a love of pink.

The Form 4 was well-packaged in a rather standard retail packaging box, though I wish it was in a more permanent/archival box for storage since I need to store the charging base with it. With my toybox, keeping toys with the charger that belongs to them is a challenge. The charging base for the Form 4 is distinctive, though, as it’s a white stand that the Form 4 sits in to allow the contacts in the base to touch the stainless steel “button” on the bottom of the vibrator. I think the same stand is used for all the Jimmyjane “Form” vibrators but I’m not completely certain of that.

The Form 4 vibrator looks a bit like a bowling pin but, to be honest, my first thought was it looked like a sex toy Weeble (the toy that wobbles but doesn’t fall down). Yah, I know, sorta weird and borderline icky. We’ll go with bowling pin instead.  Form 4 Vibrator

Despite the way it appears in pictures, the vibrator is not round in circumference but rather oval. I found out later that this is quite handy, actually. The silicon was smooth and tasteless, no odors or sense of residual mold release. My Form 4 had a seam line from the mold which I’d gather it will probably not be an impediment as the silicon is soft. The Form 4 is also not floppy, which I always fear, but it is a bit flexible.

I let the Form 4 charge overnight and finally got a chance to play with it the next day, after I got home from work. Believe me, I was ready to play, too!

One of the first things I noticed was the simplicity of controls. I hadn’t bothered to read the manual (why break my perfect record of never doing so) and instead just started pushing buttons. It was really not too hard to figure out. The Form 4 has two buttons molded into it – one is a bar shaped speed/intensity control with a barely visible “+” and “-“ symbol and the other is a round button with a symbol I can’t make out.

Pushing the “+” end of the speed control turned on the Form 4 at its lowest speed and its straight vibration level. A bit of button pushing taught me there were five levels of vibration and four different vibration patterns. Each pattern could be performed at any of the five speeds.

Form 4 VibratorThe Form 4 is a relatively quiet vibrator but it can really pack a punch. The biggest difference I noticed between the Form 4 and some of my more standard vibrators is that the part of the Form 4 that vibrated the most was the smaller tip, this is the opposite of most standard vibrators and it turns out this is because the motor is in the head/tip and not the base/handle. This means I can get more power and vibration at the tip, where I want it usually, than where it makes my hand go numb instead. Numb hands, not so orgasmic….

Because the Form 4 is waterproof and I’m confident of that since it doesn’t have charging ports or o-rings, I decided to test it out in the bathtub and really recover from my crappy work day. A bath bomb, lots of hot water into which I lowered myself slowly with required hissing and “hot hot hot” comments and the day suddenly became MUCH better.

The Form 4 really won me over. Not only did it deliver intense vibrations to my clit and vulva, the second of the four vibration patterns seemed to make the tip of the vibrator rotate in a circle at the same time it vibrated and that was instant orgasm for me.

Remember I said the vibrator was actually oval instead of round? I discovered how good a thing this was when I dropped the Form 4 in the bathtub. Instead of chasing it all over the bottom of the tub, it vibrated in place a bit but didn’t roll.

If you are looking for a great luxury vibrator that is really well made, is waterproof, rechargeable and powerful without sounding like a jet engine, the Form 4 might be the vibrator for you. It’s especially nice if Form 4 Vibratoryou like vibrators that aren’t too “buzzy.”

I really liked the Form 4 vibrator and it now has a place in my toybox and I managed to set up its charging cradle in the headboard of the bed so it can stay charged. The Form 4 may be my new “go to” vibrator, especially since I murdered another bullet vibrator last week.
