Review of Yumi
Posted by Kassandra Lian on 27th Mar 2020
Who Made It: Vedo
Intended Use: External Finger Vibrator
The Yumi was slightly larger than I thought it would be. I'm not sure what I expected, but it ended up being the size of a smallish lemon cut in half. Mine came in pink. I turned the toy on and discovered a strong motor (praise God), with 3 speeds and multiple pulse patterns.
It was around 6PM and my boyfriend was at work. The sun was shining through the window and onto the bed. My room was freshly cleaned, there was some incense burning, and I had just lit up a spliff. The mix of the two created a heavy cloud of smoke that hung low in the room. The atmosphere felt super romantic. I really get off on romancing myself. I'll light a candle, give myself a massage, play some Sade, and fuck myself silly. Of course I'm always down to bust a quick nut, but when I have the time and energy I like to make it special.
I opened up Pornhub and scrolled through the site for a bit. I didn't really have an urge to watch anything specific, so I just poked around until something caught my eye. This time it was “Amateur Lesbians Dabble in Light Bondage.” Seemed like a good place to start. After falling down that rabbit hole for a good 5 to 10 minutes, I was ready to try out the Yumi.
Lying on my back, I turned on the vibrator and tried it out at its highest setting. As expected, the rumbly motor was just enough for me to get a good groove going. It made my whole hand vibrate, which is a turn off for some, but I don't care so much.
I alternated between using the little nub on the top and the broad belly of the toy to stimulate my clitoris and vulva. Soon, things in the video I was watching started to heat up and I orgasmed quickly. The whole thing took less than 5 minutes, and I felt unsatisfied, so I continued watching the video and idly clicked through the Yumi’s pulse patterns. I usually ignore pulse patterns because they can feel too busy, which can cause me to lose my orgasm, but today I felt like playing, so I was more open. I finally landed on a pattern that started with a low buzz and increased in intensity to its strongest vibration level then cycled back to its softest. It kind of made me think of waves crashing into shore. The sentiment was cute enough to make me choose this setting.
This time around I rolled onto my belly and used my 20-year-old teddy bear, Rosalita, to prop up my phone. The sun beamed down onto my back and warmed my skin up. A slight breeze crept through the window and made its way around my room. It was all so fucking perfect I could’ve cried. I shoved my hands down my front and nestled the toy between my legs. The pulse pattern was nice. Its highest setting was enough to make me squirm before it jumped back to the lower vibration. It was effective in prolonging my climax, with the lowest vibration being just strong enough. I didn't feel as if I was being interrupted, which can happen with most pulse patterns. When I finally came, the vibration waves from the toy synced up with the pulse of my orgasm. That shit really pushed me over the edge. I rode my orgasm for a while before getting tired out.
All and all, I had a pleasant experience with the Yumi. I feel like it would be easy enough for my partner to use on me if we ever felt like mixing things up. Not the first toy I'd grab for a quick and powerful orgasm, but definitely one I’ll roll around in bed with for 30 minutes, the perfect companion for a lazy afternoon.
