I'll cut straight to the point: I'm not really a dildo kind of girl. If I'm going to play all by myself, typically I would pick something a bit less intrusive. But when Babeland offered to send me a new toy, I figured it couldn't hurt to try something new. I trust their advice. After all, their original Seattle store was right next door to my old friends' art gallery and I spent many hours perusing their wares.
I received a slimline vibrator called the Gallant, which is fashioned from pliable and easy to clean silicone. It's not threateningly realistic and veiny or overly cartoonish-looking. Mine is a pretty pale blue, with a subtle curve and etched waves for extra sensation. The oddly-Nickelodeon-esque splotch on its base is an ergonomic, fully-adjustable dial that allows you to control your buzz from a gentle hum to a more profound vibration: the Gallant has a very, very powerful motor compared to other toys. It is also quite large- almost 7" and about 2" around. It uses two AA batteries and is water-resistant enough for shower use but not for bathtub submersion.
The full-size Gallant I received doesn't seem to be available on Babeland right now although truthfully, the adorable Mini Gallant seems like it might be a more manageable size (4" x 1") for solo play.
