One of my favourite movies is Slums of Beverly Hills. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, it’s a quirky comedy about a lower middle class teenager (played by Orange is the New Black‘s Natasha Lyonne) living in 1976 Beverly Hills. I saw it when I was in my late teens and it’s remained a fave ever since.
There are so many awkward and hilarious coming of age moments in the film that occur between Vivian (Lyonne) and her oddball family- including one where Vivian discovers her older sister’s vibrator.
Although the film takes place in the 70′s, it came out in the late 90′s. Looking back, I realized that this was one of the first times I was ever exposed to anything to do with sex toys. The Sex and The City
“Rabbit Habit” episode hadn’t aired yet and it would be years before I bought my first sex toy
. However, the image of the large, ultra-straight, vibrator from Slums of Beverly Hills definitely stuck with me.
When I first saw the the Jopen Envy 3, I immediately thought of that scene from the movie. Most of my vibrators are either really small, curved, or rabbit style. So, when the lovely folks at Jopen offered to send me a Jopen Envy 3, I couldn’t resist. How would this toy compare to my other beloved sex toys?
First of all, here are the specs: The Jopen Envy 3
is a classic vibrator made of 100% hypoallergenic, body-safe, silky smooth silicone. It’s approximately 7″ long, with 6.5″ of that which is actually insertable – making it a fairly sizeable toy. It offers 7 different vibration settings with incremental speed control and a 100% playing surface – this means that the whole thing vibrates and you can experiment with touching different areas of the toy on different areas of your body. It’s also fully rechargeable by USB and waterproof for bath-time fun.
One of the cool features about this toy is that it includes a state of the art memory chip that keeps track of the last function you used, so that it’s ready to go when you turn it on for your next play session. You can use the Jopen Envy 3 as a clitoral vibrator or you can insert it – or you can alternate between the two (which is what I found I preferred) – it’s totally up to you!
