Oh Anastasia…

I had such hope for you but you are not THE one for me. Although you may be perfect for someone else.

Each workday I look at the many vibrators we have in the store. Some catch my eye more than others. I had already bought at a discount, several rechargeable vibes and wanted to try a battery operated one. More often than not the rechargeable vibrators have more power than the battery operated ones. It was my mission to put this to the test. Eventually I decided on getting Anastasia, part of the Luxe line by Blush Novelties. This particular line and vibe come with a 5 year warranty. Of course you need to save the packaging and possibly the receipt in order to obtain warranty service from the manufacturer. Not many people do that. I always suggest to customers to tape the receipt in the box so it all stays together.

The packaging of Anastasia is quite simple. It comes in a clear yet color-coordinated plastic container. The outside of the packaging highlights all of the features of this bullet style vibe.

Anastasia comes in 3 colors; Aqua, Periwinkle and Fuschia, which is the color I chose. You’ll find that Anastasia is made of body safe 100% silicone and contains no phthalates. The outside skin is very soft and smooth. There are ridges on the exterior to increase your pleasure but again they are soft and smooth as opposed to rough.

This cute vibe is 6.5 inches in total length with 5.5 insertable and is 1.25 inches wide. The manufacturer states that the outside sleeve is removable leaving you with a mini vibe. Honestly, I tried, unsuccessfully to remove it. It’s on there very well. I was afraid I’d damage it somehow so I cannot verify how well it works or looks as a mini vibe. The top portion of Anastasia is flexible. So it might be possible for the ladies to get it in a position to hit their g-spot. Be aware though that is not the shape nor design of this vibe.

Operation of Anastasia is quite easy. There is just one button on the bottom. Hold it for a few seconds to turn it on or off. Press it to continue through the 10 functions. There are several different constant speeds and vibrations and there are also patterns. I’m not a fan of the patterns. For myself the patterns may feel good vaginally but they won’t give me an orgasm whether vaginal or clitoral. I, like most women, need more constant clitoral stimulation and unfortunately this vibe just doesn’t have enough power to get me to the point of orgasm. That seems to jive with the fact that’s it is battery operated rather than rechargeable. With that said, it does feel good and certainly has its place. For me, it would work better during foreplay. Your experience of course may be different. Especially if you enjoy a softer touch.

Cleanup is easy. Simply wash with soap and water or your favorite toy cleaner and let Anastasia dry on the counter. You can use either water-based or silicone lube with this toy. Either way be sure to clean it immediately after use. Please note this vibe is waterproof but not submersible. There is a big difference.

At the bricks and mortar store I work in part-time, Anastasia retails for $34.99. I was able to purchase it for less using my employee discount.
