This toy had been on my Lovehoney wish-list for some time. I’d been debating whether to buy or not, since it is a slightly more expensive toy in the mid-range of pricing, at £74.99. I’d only tried one egg previously (the Annabelle Knight Yes! Powerful Vibrating Love Egg), which is battery-operated. I was thus looking to go for something rechargeable. The Adrien Lastic Smart Dream fit the bill for this purpose. Moreover, it has a clitoral arm, 10 vibration modes, 2 powerful motors, a remote control and is ‘whisper quiet.’
What’s In the Egg box?
The packaging is a white cardboard flip-lid box. It is encased by a white card sleeve displaying a glossy image of the egg. The branding / product description is embossed in silver. In the box, the Smart Dream egg (a bright and fun fuchsia pink, with black rings around the centre), sits nestled in a foam insert. Remove this, and under a card flap sits the remote control unit, USB charging cable, white satin pouch, Lithium 3V CR2032 battery and product literature. A 2-year warranty comes in the box too.
First things first, I read the instructions on charging and operating the egg. Seems fairly simple as I will describe below. I attempt to open the battery cover on the Remote Control Unit, and damn and blast, it is sealed really tight! Not to mention, the remote is a bit flimsy-looking so I am terrified I am going to break it (or wrench my thumb nail off trying to open the compartment!) Luckily Mr Bunny was able to open the compartment and save the day using one of his little tools. With battery inserted, the remote would operate, but the egg needed a good charging.
There is a little indent in the silicone on the back of the egg, to insert the USB jack. The jack end is slightly angled to fit against the curve of the egg. It needs pushing in really firmly so that the red LED indicator on the egg illuminates.
Works like a Dream
Smart Dream takes about 2-hours to fully charge, and it will turn itself off once fully charged. The red LED light will go out too. When turning on the egg, simply press the power button on the front of the egg (under the black band) for 3 seconds. A single vibration indicates it will respond to the remote control, whilst 2 vibrations means it is not receptive to the remote. The remote itself is very simple and has two buttons; a power button to switch the egg on and off, and a function button (with the Adrien Lastic logo) to cycle through the 10 vibration modes. I will attempt to describe the 10 modes as best as I can:
- Low frequency continuous vibrations.
- Continuous vibrations (medium frequency).
- Continuous vibrations (high frequency).
- Fast pulsing.
- Six fast pulses followed by a longer pulse, repeated.
- Ascending / descending wave.
- Ascending pulses, repeated.
- Seventeen higher frequency slow pulses, followed by fast pulsing.
- Eleven fast pulses, followed by low frequency continuous vibrations (5 seconds).
- Approx. twenty-five fast pulses, followed by higher frequency continuous vibrations (5 seconds).
In use, I find the egg to consist of a lovely soft silicone with barely any drag. It inserts easily with a dollop of some water-based lubricant. The clitoral arm nestles neatly against my clitoris. I can walk around, sit, and bend down all with relative ease and no discomfort. I could hear the vibrations as a slight hum when I was in a silent room. I’m sure if surrounded by enough background noise it will be indiscernible.
As for the strength of the vibrations, they are certainly stimulating and help create arousal. But even with the stronger vibrations I could wear the egg for the entire duration that it remained charged (a couple of hours) and I did not orgasm. I see it as more a teaser, to help create some fun foreplay between a couple on a romantic evening, or even on a date night, to follow up with some more ‘interactive’ play later on.
More than one way to use this egg
We tried wearing the Smart Dream during intercourse. Simply insert the clitoral arm into the vagina under your partner’s penis, and rest the egg part on your clitoris. I did not find the vibrations quite strong enough to bring me to orgasm, but my other half enjoyed the vibrations. I think it’ll be a good toy for couples who want to share a toy for creating anticipation. Those who want to try a couple’s vibrator but don’t want to spend £160 for a We-Vibe Sync may find the Smart Dream a good option. On the other hand, the We-Vibe Unite may be a good competitor to the Adrien Lastic Smart Dream. The Unite gets an average of 4/5 stars, based on over 10 reviews. Currently, a free magic wand worth £29.99 is offered with the Unite.
Cleaning of the Smart Dream is fairly simple; just use some toy cleaner or soap with warm water and leave to air dry. The egg is splash proof so don’t immerse. Hence it won’t be suitable for use in a bath. To summarise, this egg gives a bit of buzz to help set the mood for some couples fun. Alternatively, use it solo to add some excitement whilst going about your day!
