I’ve tried a few different clitoral stimulators recently, including the Fun Factory Volta and CalExotics Red Hot Ember. When I heard about the Zumio and the power of its oscillations via its SpiroTip™ I was excited to get in touch with Zumio to see if I could test for them. Luckily my persistence paid off! Veronica at Zumio kindly sent me my very own unit to try out, in exchange for this review.
Before using for the first time, it is recommended that you fully charge the Zumio. It sits in a charging dock, that looks a bit like the charger for an electronic toothbrush. A full charge can take up to 16 hours. The micro USB plugs into the inductive charging unit, and the USB end can go into a laptop USB port or into a suitable wall adaptor. An LED on the base of the charger blinks whilst the unit is charging. It will remain illuminated when fully powered up.
The handle is purple ABS plastic with a silver Zumio ‘badge.’ The operating buttons are on the tapering silicone top half of the unit. A raised circular button powers the unit on or off. Holding this button for 5 seconds until the Zumio gives 3 pulses, activates or deactivates the travel lock. Above this button is a ‘figure-of-eight’ shaped button; the lower part of the ‘8’ decreases the intensity, whilst the upper part increases the intensity.
Using the Zumio
The Zumio is for external use only. It’s SpiroTip™ offers pinpoint clitoral and labial stimulation. There are 8 intensity settings. They are all continuous oscillations. I’m not sure that it is necessary for there to be 8 settings, and I usually stick to the lower end of the intensity scale when I masturbate with the Zumio, as I find it pretty intense. I tend to hold the tip over the edge of my clitoris, towards the right side and sweep it across my clitoris, clitoral hood and inner labia. It is usually possible for me to reach orgasm within a couple of minutes when I play with the Zumio. I use some water-based lubricant with it, or an enhancer such as the Tracey Cox Orgasm Gel.
Zumio’s tip is soft on the sensitive areas of the clitoris and labia. It feels sort of like a ‘cotton-bud’ making circular motions at high speed. Zumio is not the quietist of toys, and it does have a slight grating whirr to it, akin to an electric toothbrush. I don’t find it too off-putting though. The sensations help distract me! It has been commented in another review I read that the buttons are placed a bit far down the shaft of the handle. I can see how some people may find it slightly awkward to use, but I’ve not had any issues myself. I find the buttons to be responsive and easy to operate.
Cleaning the Zumio is easy; simply clean with some soap and water or an antibacterial wipe. If you want a powerful toy that gives pin-point precise stimulation to the clitoral area, then Zumio may well be your new bedside buddy!
