Form 6

+ Material: Silicone

+ Price: $185

Jimmyjane’s Form 6 vibrator feels sleek and sexy and smooth and more than a little decadent. When I buy sex toys, my number one question is usually not, “Will this vibrator be a life-changing nightstand piece?” but, “Will this vibrator get me off without unintentionally electrocuting me?” I expect a vibrator to exude sex because it’s a vibrator, not because it’s a sexy object in and of itself. The Form 6 changes that.

In the Atlantic, Andy Isaacson writes:

“Through their design, [Jimmyjane founder] Imboden wants to convey the sense that these are carefully considered objects—that someone is looking out for our sexual well-being, even if we have been conditioned to have low expectations. ‘I jokingly say this is an area where you really don’t want to disappoint your customers,’ Behar told me. ‘And I think this is an industry that has treated its customers really badly.’

The Form 6 is obviously a carefully considered object. It’s visually appealing, balanced, minimalist, sexy. It has won both an International Design Excellence Award (in leisure and recreation) and an International Design Magazine consumer product design award for its silicone design and cordless recharging system (it charges through a metal band that sits in a dock instead of plugging into something).

Its body is medical-grade platinum silicone (it’s less likely to have been contaminated by human contact during manufacturing and is biocompatible), which feels soft and almost velvety, but is also sticky enough to leave you with a good grip, even covered in (non-silicone-based) lube. It has power adapters for several countries, charges in four hours and lasts for up to six and comes in slate or pink. It has a few modes of vibration (either or both ends and a few different pulses) and five levels of intensity. The vibrations feel rumbly, and are quiet at the lowest levels but noisier at the higher ones. It’s awkward to cycle between intensities and modes during sex because you have to use two hands to press hard enough, but this also means the vibrator won’t accidentally turn off at a key moment.

One of the Form 6’s selling points is that you can use either end internally — the smaller end hits your g-spot, while the larger, thicker end end is for straight up penetration play. Each end has its own motor, and they vibrate differently: the shorter end has higher pitched vibrations, while the larger end has deeper ones. Both ends feel equally amazing.

Actually, the entire thing feels, and looks, amazing. This is the vibrator that let me throw out most of my other vibrators (and one unfortunate g-spot toy) without worrying that I might ever miss them.

  1. [quote]”A few weeks ago, I went out for coffee with my butch friend. After a while, the conversation turned to sex, and she asked me if I liked toys. When I said yes, she snickered and replied that “if your girlfriend was good enough in bed, you wouldn’t want them.” Then, she said that she never uses them for that reason. She thinks she’s good enough, and would be offended if a woman requested something extra. According to her, a real lesbian wouldn’t want to use a strap-on, unless her lover was bad in bed. I decided that even if my relationship ended, I’d never sleep with her.”[/quote]

    Wow, just wow. Can we stop with all this “real lesbian” shit?

      • OH MY GOD YOU GUYS. I wrote that. I had no idea it would end up on Autostraddle! I’ve been an avid reader of this site for three years, that was the first thing I ever published on Eden, and suddenly it ends up on Autostraddle. I’m star-struck. Wow.

  2. I can’t manage to comment on the “real lesbian” article, but I’m confused by this:

    “My girlfriend isn’t trans (obviously, or she’d be my boyfriend), but as a butch woman, she sees her cock as an extension of herself.”

    Maybe I’m misunderstanding? My girlfriend IS trans and she’s DEFINITELY not my boyfriend, because…she’s my girlfriend. Featured word, “girl.” Is the author accidentally implying that “real lesbians” don’t date trans women? Maybe dating a transgendered person puts a spin on your self-identified sexuality, but I would assume a woman dating a trans man would consider herself bisexual or straight.

    • Hi! I’m the author of that article. Oh dear, that’s not what I meant to say at all. I hope people don’t get that impression. What I meant is that my girlfriend doesn’t identify as a trans*guy, although she does wear a strap on and sees it as an extension of herself. What I meant by “if she was, then she’d be my boyfriend” was that if she was transguy, I’d be using the right pronouns.

      I absolutely believe real lesbians can date trans*women, and actually, I had a pretty significant relationship with a transgirl in the past. A few sentences in that article were probably confusing, and I’m super sorry about that. That was the first article I’ve ever written for Eden. I’ll try to be clearer next time. (Side note: I also think the whole idea of a “real” lesbian is silly.)

      I hope that clears things up! :)
