The package

The Couples Vibe comes in a very nice attractive package.  It’s a small thin box with a very nice desin on the ront.  It has the FixSation logo on the front and says “Fixate on the Sensation when Friction meets Vibration”.  The back has the same background design and lists what the box includes.  The box itself comes with the Couples Vibe unit, the charger, and a carrying case which is a small satin drawstring bag.  It also has a few pictures on the back that shows the features of the toy and how to attach it to the panty companion, which I also received.  Inside the box is a small plastic tray that everything is placed in, but if you remove it you get a little bit more space.  The box is very thick and study, so it is possible to store the vibe, charger, panty companion and even a few condoms and lube packetttes in it.  Since the box is so thin and small it could easily be tucked away in a bedside table.  The couple vibe and the panty companion both fit into the drawstring bag.

Now there are two main components:  the couples vibe and the panty companion.  The couples vibe is a small, flat oval shape and made from a smooth, matte plastic.  It’s around 2 inches wide and 2.5 inches long.  It’s thickness increases from about 0.25 to 0.75 inches.  The bottom side of the vibe goes against the clit and vulva and has three fairly pronounced ridges.  The top side faces out and will rub against your partner.  It also has ridges, but they are less pronounced and there are many more.  The power button is also located on the top of this side.The sides of the vibe have a place to slip the attachments of the panty companion in them, which I’ll show you exactly how to do in the video below.  On the very top end there is a small rubber plug that covers the charging port.  It seems to seal pretty well and I have not had any issues with fluid leaking into the port.  It says it is waterproof, but I would err on the side of caution and go with splash-proof.  Plus you probably wouldn’t want to get in the tube with the panty on.  The instructions state to only use a water-based lubricant and to wash it with soap and water.  You can also use toy cleaner or wipes on it as well.

The panty companion and couples vibe

The panty companion is made from polyester and nylon and is essentially a lace waist band with two stretchy straps.  These straps can be unhooked from the back side of the panty and threaded through the sides of the vibe and re-hooked.  I’ve found it’s best to attach the vibe and then slip the whole thing on like a regular pair of panties.  The lacy band is soft, comfortable, and quite stretchy.  Oh me, it shits just ever so slightly above my hips and I’ve had no problems with it sliding down.  I don’t find it to be too tight or dig in.  Depending on how you move it can roll up, particularly if you’re fleshy, but I didn’t really have a problem with that.  It comes in 5 sizes as listed above and I received the XXL size.  Unstretched, it measures to about 34 inches, but I had no problems with it fitting my around 50″ hips/40″ waist.  As far as cleaning the panty, it says on the tag to hand wash cold, don’t bleach, and use a warm iron.  I tend to toss all my lingerie in the wash, so if you’ve had luck with that, I wouldn’t see the harm in tossing it in with the rest on a delicate cycle or lingerie bag.

The vibe itself is a medium-high level of vibration and it’s a bit buzzy. By itself, it is too loud for my liking but it muffles very well, especially between two bodies.  There are three levels of vibration.  To cycle through them you simply press the power button again and to turn the unit off you press and hold the button for a few seconds  While the vibration is not as strong as some women may prefer on their own, it is designed to work with the friction created between the couple and that’s where the ridges come in.  For me however, I could not feel the ridges.  I think part of this has to do with my pudgy outer labia.  Since it is pudgy, it doesn’t allow the vibe to directly touch my clit, even when it’s pressed into me.  I can spread my labia, but the problem created here is that the sides are a little sharp and dig in.  Even though I cannot get it right against me, it does add a nice sensation.  The vibrations are a bit buzzier than what I’d choose for myself when masturbating, but I do enjoy them during sex, especially since the vibrations seem to spread through my entire pussy.  For me, it didn’t make me orgasm instantly or more during sex, but it was a nice added treat to enjoy.  I think if I were to change something about the vibe though, I would add a silicone sleeve or have interchangeable sleeves to add different textures.  This could also allow the sides to be covered up because the edges could get very uncomfortable at times if my labia got smushed against it wrong.

Overall, I do like the FixSation Couples Vibe and Panty Companion.  It stays in place quite well and it’s rechargeable.  It says the charge should last for 2 hours, and while I have not tested it, I have not had to recharge it.  The only real issues I had is that depending on how it sits, the edges can be a bit sharp against my labia.  If you have thinner and less puffy pussy, this probably will not cause you any issues at all.  I also had a bit of trouble with the button and sometimes you have to push it *just* right to get it to turn on.  I do have to say I prefer this over other items such as the We Vibe because it does not include the insert-able portion.  I’ve found the We Vibe difficult to work with and get inserted, but the FixSation is as easy as putting on a pair of panties.  It’s also a lot more attractive than some of the other (typically jelly) “hands free” vibes.  You can buy the Vibe and Panty together or go all out and get the Vibe, Panty, and Lingerie halter top.  That way you not only feel good but look good too!  You can also get free shipping on your order with this code:  TRADE1FREESHIP.  This may be a one time use only coupon code, so may the quickest win!
