Jesse Jane's Treasure Trove by Digital Playground REVIEW: Pirates Do It Harrrrrder!
It stands to reason, and is long past time, that I tried one of the Pirate toys. One of the reason the others didn’t appeal to me was that most took watch batteries, and I’d heard they were not very powerful. Put Jesse Jane’s Treasure Trove Vibrator is only gorgeous, but takes 2 (yes, 2) C batteries. Oh. Hell. Yes.
The toy comes in a clear plastic clamshell with a cardstock backing that features Jesse Jane in her full Pirates costume. On the back are some brief notations of the toys features and instructions. The toy itself is the highlight. As it should be with it’s pretty mulberry coloring, skulls and rose motif, and clear rhinestones. This one is almost as fun to look at as it is to play with.
Its made of PU-coated plastic, that feels satin-soft against the skin, with minimal drag. Because it is made of plastic, it is latex-free, hypo-allergenic, and phthalates-free. And is suitable for use with whatever your favorite type of lube, including silicone. It is splash-proof, making it easy to clean with mild soap and warm water or toy cleaner. I have not noticed any fading of the printed design at all, which was one of my original concerns.
What is not interesting to me about the design is that it is a stick-straight slim line, with only a tapered end to aid insertion. Yes, it looks pretty that way. But, its not quite as interesting to use internally. Unless I really crook my wrist, I can’t get much g-spot stimulation. It is pretty thin, with only a 1 ¼” diameter, so I don’t get as much pleasure out of clenching down on it as with a girthier toy.
Though I must admit, it is a pretty good thruster. The shaft alone is 6 ¼” insertable, 8” total. The end-cap is easy to keep hold of in use as it is slightly bulb-shaped, and the rhinestones actually provide some texture for gripping, in an otherwise texture-free toy.
At the end of the end-cap is the only control for this toy, labeled 5, for its five functions. With each push it increases from low, medium, to high speeds. Then to the first vibration pattern which is a moderate-paced pulse. And finally onto the fifth pattern, two high pulses followed by a long pulse. The next push will turn the toy off. I like that the controls are simple to use, but do wish it was easier to go back through the patterns that having to go to the end and shut them off. And, as I’m always concerned about, not being able to shut if off quickly in an emergency.
Now, if it weren’t for this last part, my opinion of this toy would only be mediocre at best. But, as you might expect from the dual C batteries, this toy packs a punch. This is honestly one of the few straight-up vibrators intended for insertion, that I can actually use on my clit and have an orgasm from. Sure, there are others that are nice for building up, but they have always lacked enough power to get me more than just tingly. I wasn’t actually sure one existed!
The vibrations are very deep, not quite as deep as Lelo Siri, but damn close. Actually, they are very comparable to my Hitachi on low. Almost the exact same type of deep-rumbling vibration, and almost as strong. Not quite, but pretty damn close- especially for something that is only battery powered. In fact, after holding onto the shaft for just a short amount of time to test it out, my hand is pretty numb.
The vibrations are felt throughout the shaft, although they feel the strongest over the top half, then get progressively shallower towards the base, leaving the handle very easy to hold onto. Certainly not numbing to use when you hold the correct end.
So, I mentioned that I like this for clit use, and other bits such as nipples and various erogenous zones. It could also be used for anal use, though it is slightly porous, so I would recommend a condom or designating this for anal use only if you should so choose. But, what I haven’t talked about is how amazing this thing feels inside. Design-wise, it didn’t do much for me. Vibration-wise, it was impossible for my g-spot not to feel it. It was an “OMG, how is this doing this!?” kind of experience. Every internal bit of me was stimulated. I could feel the vibrations in my ass.
Conclusion? This toy stays at the top of my drawer. And maybe I’ll get another, just in-case.
