Review: Mini-Mates Jive
I must say, there really isn’t anything mini about it! Small yes, mini, not quite. It has its own lovely box for storage which I must say I am a huge fan of. The Jive is made up of a sleeve and powered by the Rocks-Off 120mm which is an amazing bullet and at 125mm x 25mm a perfect size and lightweight; big enough for a good thrill yet small enough to still be discreet. There is no need to worry about the sleeve slipping off the bullet mid use as it fits on really well.
There are six different vibrator sleeves in this range which are all powered by this bullet. The bullet is removable from each sleeve should you wish to play with it on its own. It is very easy to remove and place back in. It uses two AAA batteries which come included, just unscrew the cap at the base of the bullet, remove the cardboard separator, and screw the cap back on. You will notice two lines on the bullet which need to be lined up when the cap is screwed back on to ensure it works. Took me a while to work this out! It has a tight seal so this toy can also be used underwater. This also means the toy is really easy to clean with warm soapy water, just remove the bullet and wash them well.
The bullet has 5 different speeds, three at various vibrating speeds, one pulsing and one gradual increase which are super as you would expect most bullets to only have one speed. I prefer the strongest vibrating speed.
The mini-mates jive is brlliant on the clitoris, with even stronger vibrations when out of the sleeve. It can be used on it’s own, or with a partner during sex. It’s easy to use with one button at the base used to control the different settings. I find that this doesn’t accidentally get pressed at all during use.
As the bullet has such strong vibrations, it easily distributes these throughout the toy, even to the tip where the sleeve isn’t hollow which pleasantly surprised me.
The bullet itself is very quiet and cannot be heard behind closed doors or even under the covers.
The sleeve itself is made of IntraMed which is an environmentally friendly alternative to silicone. This toy definitely needs to be used with lube as the material has some drag to it, silicone or water based will work fine.
The end of the sleeve is curved for g-spot pleasure. Personally, it didn’t hit my g-spot, but I’ve never really been able to get off from that anyway. For me, the girth was also rather large for such a small toy. For external play however the toy was much more efficient and I cannot fault the vibrations from the bullet, with the sleeve also causing softer vibrations for those who prefer them.
