JimmyJane INTRO 2 Clitoral Vibrator

Where is the best place to begin if you’re completely new to something? Despite the fact that I usually leap blindly into things somewhere around the middle, the correct answer would be at the start. Well, I was a JimmyJane virgin up until last month, so figured that the JimmyJane INTRO 2 would be the perfect place to begin. Luckily for me, the folks at Forbidden Pleasures gave me the opportunity to review one, so here goes…

I’ve always been under the impression that JimmyJane is a luxury brand. Everything they had on offer was rechargeable with travel locks and function memory capabilities. And fat price tags. I’m not a wealthy woman, and I’d heard less than positive things about JimmyJane’s FORMs, so always pushed them to the back of the queue whenever I was buying something. Toys that sit somewhere in the £100 bracket are a gamble for most people, I think.

Then along came the INTRO range; surprisingly inexpensive versions of JimmyJane’s FORMs intended to entice people into wanting the fancy rechargeable versions. Each piece is numbered, just like the snazzy full priced range. The INTRO 1 is similarly shaped to the FORM one, the INTRO 2 is similar to the FORM 2, and so on.

The INTRO 2 is a dual-motor clitoral vibrator that’s powered by two AAA batteries. I absolutely love the look and feel of it. The deep plum silicone is velvety smooth, and the rounded base sits perfectly weighted in the hand. It measures up at just under 4.75 inches in length, and the tips have a span of between 1.5 and 2 inches. Solid and firm but with two flexible ears, it all feels really robust and well made.

Then it comes time to put the batteries in, which are included. Twist off the base, pop in your batteries then twist the base back on. Or rather try to. To make it happen you have to line up those teeny tiny little squares and slot the thing back onto the toy. Oh my god, I fucking hate these fiddly-arsed end caps. Would a screw on cap really have been all that difficult to add to this thing?

I’m just impatient and heavy handed, but what about people with poor grip? What about people who have reduced sight? I asked my mother to try to put the cap back on my INTRO 2 and she couldn’t, cos she couldn’t see to line the thing up properly. Bit annoying, really.

But the annoyance doesn’t stop there. Nope, it just turns to weirdness.

When I pushed the button on the cap to bring the INTRO 2 to life, nothing happened. I honestly thought the batteries were duds. There was a little red light flashing, but no buzzies. Then I twisted the cap to take it off and got a quick burst of vibration.

Twisting it back again until just before the base and cap were fully lined up gave it life. It’s got to be a little bit wonky for it to work. That doesn’t seem great to me, cos if I turn it all the way around mid-wank it’s gonna play dead. And what if it pops off? It hasn’t yet, but what if it does? Not fabulous for a waterproof vibe, is it.

So, now that I’ve had my little whinge about the cap, I’ll whinge tell you about the vibes.

The INTRO 2 offers three modes, each with three intensities. The first is constant vibration, the second is a rolling intensity increase/decrease, and the third is a pulse. With a motor for each ear you’d expect there to be a little bit of oomph here, despite the battery situation.

But there isn’t. It’s so unbelievably buzzy I can’t actually stand using it. The box suggests squeezing the ears together while your clit is nestled inside, but that hurts man! The fit is good, and it feels pretty nice if I jiggle it around when the vibes are off, but as soon as I turn it on I get uncomfy prickles. It feels like someone pressing needles against the sides of my clit. It does feel okay of I stroke it up and down my inner labia, but anywhere near my clit and I just can’t stand it.

The Fella likes it, though. His balls respond to high-pitched buzzes really well, and so does his cock. I won’t use it on my cheeks while I give him head, though. I don’t want pins and needles in my gums, thanks very much.

Like I mentioned earlier, the INTRO 2 is waterproof, so keeping it clean is simple. I’ve washed mine in soapy water, and I’ve sprayed it with toy cleaner, and both have worked just fine.

So, now that I’ve been introduced to JimmyJane, I have to say I’m not all that impressed. I would like to try one of their rechargeable products, but not as much as I wanted to before. To me, an intro should leave me itching to know more, but this one just left me itchy.

However, not everyone likes the same vibrations as I do. If you’re someone who likes higher pitched, weaker vibes, you could do a lot worse than give this a go. Want to see if it’s for you? You can pick one up here.

  1. It looks a bit like a Domo doll, lol.
    Yeugh, sounds like a poor experience, but interesting that the Fella responded positively! Makes me wonder if mine wouldn’t enjoy it also; i have a vibe that i hate for similar reasons but that he likes, so maybe it’d be worth getting it just for him.

    1. We have a box of things that I’ve found lacking but the Fella has loved. He responds really well to lighter, weaker vibes that stay more surface level. Anything deeper makes him uncomfortable. That said, he’s 100% fine with sharing the Doxy with me if we keep it on low, so he isn’t totally against rumbly power.x
