USE / DESIGN / SIZE
This incredibly unique vibrator is ideal for beginner to advanced ladies clitoral or perineal stimulation, and a wonderful aide for hands-free vibration during sex. If desired, it can even be used for shallow penetration. The Cone can easily be used simultaneously with a plug or dildo…. or both. Many men may also like the vibrations that can stimulate the taint area or other erogenous zones.
The Cone is approximately the size of a large cottage cheese container, having a nearly 8 inch diameter, and being 5 inches tall. The round pyramid tapers to a peak with a 45 degree angle. Its also pretty hefty, weighing in at 1lbs, 12 oz (with batteries). Though this may make lugging the Cone around a pain, it does make it more accessible and steady during use.
MATERIAL / TEXTUREThe Cone, by Twisted Products, is covered completely in seamless, matte, velvety-soft, 100% medical-grade silicone. The silicone is completely smooth, with no texture, excepting for controls, which are embedded beneath the silicone, and a triangle shape that marks the control panel and says “The Cone“. Under the silicone is a hard material (plastic, I’m assuming) that makes the toy rigid, with no give what-so-ever. At first I found this to be somewhat uncomfortable, but by using pillows, I was able to position myself so that I could keep my clit near the top of the toy without it actually causing pain from too much pressure. The bottom, which is essentially the battery cover, is made of ABS plastic with rubber feet that allow for gripping to hard surfaces. The toy had no taste or smell, nor does it retain odors, even though I stored in the same drawer as a sil-a-gel toy.
CONTROLS / FUNCTIONS The buttons on the Cone are silicone covered and fairly small, which can make them somewhat tricky to change in use, especially in positions that limit accessibility to the controls anyway. The best way to work around this is to be mindful of how you are positioning the Cone underneath you, and having the buttons turned slightly off-center, favoring your dominant hand.
The Cone features two buttons. The right button powers the unit, and starts on the first mode, when held for 2 seconds. If pushed again, the right button will automatically cause the mode to jump to mode 16, which is called orgasm mode (no, I didn’t make that up, but it is true). To turn the unit off, hold the right button for 2 seconds. So what is the left button for? Well, it advances the Cone through the other 14 modes, of course. For each advanced mode that the Cone enters, a red light will blink in the number that corresponds to the mode. Sadly, you cannot scroll backwards through the modes.
PERFORMANCE / MODESI have to say, this is easily the strongest non-electric vibe I own, and with 3 C batteries, its no wonder. This thing is a power-house!! The vibrations are not at all buzzy, but are that perfect combination of a deep and rumbly high-pitch that is easily felt. The vibrations are felt through the entire Cone, though you can get more pin-point pressure near the tip of the Cone. On the highest settings, I can feel the vibrations rumbling through my entire butt…. though the only part of the Cone I am touching is my clit and mons. When used during sex, the vibrations will travel to your partner (its that strong).
With so many modes and speeds to choose from, there is something for everyone. For me, this is one of the few vibrators I own that I can actually orgasm with, without having to grind on it for pressure. And when I do grind? Well, lets just say is amazing! The best thing about the Cone is that you can choose what areas, and how much you want that area stimulated, but adjusting your placement on the Cone. More on that later. Another feature that many will love is that it is waterproof. For me, I love that it makes the Cone easier to clean, but because the vibrations can be quite loud, and they are only amplified in the tub, and rattle against the shower, so I only use this one on land. In fact, if noise is a consideration, you might want to use this toy only when the house is empty. The Cone, with its 3 volts and 3000 rpm motor, can definitely be heard through a closed door, even with white noise.

POSITIONS Because of the unique shape of the Cone, you won’t be able to use this toy the would a standard vibrator, so it does have a learning curve, and I do recommend this toy only to those who are willing to try new positions. Not only does the Cone pamphlet come with some suggestions, additional suggestions are offered at Cone Zone
Here I have pictured some basic suggestions and how they worked for me….
#1-- Probably my favorite way to use the Cone… although I have modified this position with pillows (see #14) to help keep my clit near the tip, where the vibrations are concentrated, and lessen my weight so it wasn‘t too painful. Spice it up by having your partner enter you from behind.
Pro: Plenty of room to grind on the toy, and allows you to read or use the computer hands-free.
Con: makes it somewhat difficult to reach the controls.
#2-- I did not find this feasible… the Cone is not plush, it has no give, and to place too much of my body weight just felt painful. While it is possible to insert the tip, it just didn’t do much for me. Variation: Sit with butt on the floor and lean in towards the Cone.
Pro: Comfortable and hands-free position with variation.
Con: Vibrations near base are more diffused.
#3-- Tried this on sitting on the corner of the bed. Again, to put weight on the tip was painful. But to straddle it, with my butt on the bed, felt great. Variation: Flip the Cone upside-down and hold the tip to your clit. Another way is to cross your legs so you have control of where and how much pressure goes on the Cone.
Pro: Comfortable, good maneuverability.
Con: Vibrations near base are more diffused.
#4-- This way felt great and I was able to center the tip on my clit or easily move so they were concentrated on my vulva or bum.
Pro: Lots of control of how to center vibrations
Con: hard to comfortably hold this position for long.
#5-- Just…. not my thing. The vibrations are centered on the ass, rather than the clit, and left me only one free arm. Variation: Use a pillow to help center your body on the Cone and have your partner use his fingers or tongue on your clit. Or have your man use this position to stimulate the ball and taint area while performing oral sex on him.
Pro: Good for perineal stimulation and oral sex.
Con: Can be cumbersome holding self-up. Not good for clitoral stimulation.
#6-- Tied with #3 for my second favorite position. Hands-free and lots of maneuverability to stimulate the clit or vulva. Variation: sit on a pillow to get your clit closer to the tip.
Pro: Easy to do, lots of maneuverability, hands-free, easy to reach controls.
Con: Not the best position to grind on the toy.
#7-- This one works great in the shower, and/or to give your partner oral sex simultaneously. Variation: stand-up straight. Or face the wall and lean into it while your partner enters you from behind.
Pro: Good with partner, hands-free
Con: Staying bent over can be uncomfortable. Cone is prone to slipping. You can buy rubber grippers from the store to help with this.
#8-- My third favorite position. Very comfortable and effective. Useful for grinding and changing the position of the vibrations by simply leaning forward or back. Variation: Again, use a pillow under the butt to get nearer to the tip.
Pro: hands-free, good maneuverability.
Con: Weight on the Cone can be uncomfortable. The pillow helps.
#9-12-- variations of the other themes while including a partner.
#13-- Using your liberator wedge or ramp, you can hold this against the flat part and lean into in classic doggy-style position. Variation: have your partner enter you from behind… he will be able to feel the vibrations too!!
Pro: Spice up an old stand-by
Con: Cone may slip if your weight moves. You can use a pillow to help if this is a problem.
#14-- See #1... Yes this is my own wonky illustration… hey, its hard to draw on a computer!!
Sandwich two pillows on either side of the Cone and lay down on top. Pro: Clit is nearer the higher concentrated vibrations while lessening applied weight.
Con: Can be difficult to adjust the controls.
CARE AND MAINTANCE The manufacturer states that the Cone can be used with any non-silicone lubes and recommend cleaning with toy cleaner. The Cone can also be safely cleaned with mild soap and warm water, or wiped with a 10% bleach solution to sanitize. And because it is water-proof, with no crevices or textures, it is easy to clean thoroughly.
A red blinking light will indicate that battery life is low. To extend battery life, the 3 C-cell batteries should be removed during storage. I have personally gotten several hours of use from one set of batteries at a time. But good luck finding a toy pouch to keep the lint off this guy. And because of its larger size, it probably won’t be tucked into a drawer, but its discreet appearance means you could leave it on top of the dresser as artwork.
PACKAGING The Cone came packaged in a deep pink, pyramid shaped, card-board box which is semi-discreet. It is pretty, fun, and unique, without being at all vulgar… though its unique shape and bright colors might catch someone’s eye and pique their curiosity.
Included in the box was the cone, a user’s manual, and a pamphlet with position suggestions.
, other uses are limited only by the imagination
