The Jopen Vanity Vr3 is a rechargeable rabbit-style vibrator with dual independent motors. The shaft of the toy, meant for internal stimulation, houses one of the motors, and the other is in the smaller curved arm, providing clitoral stimulation. The toy is made of silicone, is completely waterproof, and is available (only) in the fuchsia purple color shown in my photos. The insertable length is about 3.5″, the overall length is almost 6.75″, and the clitoral stimulator is 2″ long. Both the main shaft of the toy and the clitoral arm have a significant amount of bend to them, allowing it to adjust to accommodate more body types. The battery, which charges via a port in the bottom of the toy, can be completely charged in 3 hours, and gives at least two hours of play on the highest settings. A red light will turn on indicating it’s plugged in correctly/charging, and the motors will not turn on when it’s charging or plugged in. As with all silicone toys, water based lube is generally the better option to avoid damaging the toy. While the design indicates it’s intended for vaginal play, the insertable shaft of the toy could be used for anal play, since the clitoral arm would act as a flange to keep it from going all the way in. That being said, I’ve never used this toy for anal play, and I’m not recommending it.
While the Jopen Vanity Vr3 is completely made of silicone, it also has mechanical interior parts, so boiling it or putting it in your dishwasher are likely a very bad ideas (waterproof does not equal heat proof). The best way to completely sanitize the Vr3 is to wash it in a 10% bleach solution, however I usually just wash it thoroughly with antibacterial soap and water. Silicone toys typically attract dust and pet fur, and the Vr3 seems to attract even more than most. In my experience, there is no storage solution that completely keeps my very determined dust particles from finding my sex toys, and have resigned myself to needing to wash off most toys before play.
Let’s all take a moment to appreciate the element the Vr3 has that should be mandatory on all rechargeable vibrators: a travel lock. This was one of the main reasons I bought this toy; I love to travel, but rechargeable vibrators can be a pain to travel with (no mom… that’s just my toothbrush, I swear). Manufacturers, it’s not that challenging to add a travel lock setting to most toys, please help us avoid awkward moments in the airport and add a damn travel lock on your vibrators! (Sorry… rant over now, back to the review). Jopen states that the Vanity Vr3 arrives locked, to unlock or lock again, hold both buttons down for 4 seconds.
At the widest point, the Vanity Vr3’s shaft has a circumference of just about 4.75″ (1.5″ in diameter), which I find feels more significant from a cold start then it does when I’m warmed up. I also think it would be even better if the insertable length was a bit longer as well. While I didn’t feel the girth or length was a major problem, those who like larger toy or like to feel really full may want something more substantial. Although the toy is shaped in a way that I thought it would offer g-spot stimulation, it didn’t really add anything extra for me in that area, and it could be how this particular toy fits me. I also find when fully inserted the curved part of the clitoral arm hits about a 1/4″ above my clitoris (I’m guessing on the distance… it’s a bit challenging to calculate, but the point is that it’s not hitting my clit). Again, this probably varies depending on the user, as other reviewers have said it didn’t reach their clitoris. For me, sliding the toy out slightly solves this issue, but it’s harder to hold in that exact position then it would be just letting it rest fully inserted.
Since the motors in Jopen’s Vanity Vr3 work independently, you have many vibration combos to chose from. There are 2 buttons on the bottom of the toy, the top button controls the internal motor and the bottom button controls the clitoral arm’s motor. There aren’t really specific vibration settings, instead you hold down the button controlling the motor you want to use, and the Vr3 increases in intensity until you let go or it reaches the highest vibration. I liked being able to have that level of control over the vibrations, as it’s something I’ve never really experienced with any other vibrator. Jopen’s flaw in the design of button’s settings is this: you hold the buttons down to increase the vibrations, but you only hit them once to shut that motor off entirely… and the buttons are on the handle. Depending on how you hold the Vanity Vr3 you’ll be hitting these buttons a lot. Even if you hold the Vr3 so that the buttons aren’t being pressed, I can’t tell you how many times I hit the button once thinking it would increase the vibrations (out of habit since many other vibrators work that way), or I would try to hold the button down and accidentally hit it once anyways. The Vanity Vr3 is super easy to shut off. Keep this in mind if that’s something that ruins orgasms for you. On a happy note, this toy is super quiet even on the highest settings and can barely be heard even when held against your skin.
The one thing I really loved about the Vanity Vr3 is the internal motor’s super rumbly vibrations. Generally, my orgasms are primarily clit-based, so other than possibly some cheap Spencer’s Gifts vibrators I had in high school, I don’t think I’ve owned any internal vibrators. I never really considered it would be something I would enjoy, and the Jopen Vanity Vr3 really surprised me by feeling pretty damn good inside me. They’re not the strongest vibrations I’ve ever felt, but they manage to feel substantial. My issue is that the internal vibrations, despite being quite rumbly, tend to make me feel pretty numb inside after like 15-20 minutes. My partner and I used the Vr3 as part of foreplay, and when he later penetrated me the sensations were dulled. For me, this rules it out as a good vibrator for partner play because I’d prefer to have full sensations throughout sex, but it’s still on my toy roster for solo play. During solo play, I still feel like the sensation internally dulls after a bit, but shutting that motor off for a minute or two and then turning it back on helped. I found myself doing this a few times whenever I used the Vr3.
As wonderful and deep as the rumbly internal vibrations feel on the Vanity Vr3, the clitoral vibrations are the complete opposite. I had tried the internal vibrations first, and after being so satisfied with their rumbly goodness I wanted to yell at Jopen for slapping a mediocre vibrator in the clitoral arm of the toy. They’re probably not the worst vibrations ever, but they’re super buzzy and dull slightly when you put pressure on that part of the toy. My clit was deeply unimpressed. My resident engineer (okay, he’s my partner) partner says a larger motor will always be able to produce stronger vibrations, and clearly there’s much more room for a larger motor in the shaft of the toy than in the clitoral arm, but Jopen still could have provided better clitoral stimulation. The larger motor can be used on your clit if that’s what you prefer, but for me that kills the purpose of the having an internal and external motor in the first place.
• Travel Lock
• Offers rumbly internal vibrations
• Made of silicone
• Internal vibrations can make you feel a bit numb
• Buzzy clitoral vibrator
• Poorly designed buttons, easy to accidentally shut off
THE LEVEL OF EFFORT REQUIRED FOR ORGASM:
Note: Obviously, this won’t be the same for everyone, however this is a new category that I think is good for rating toys. It’s come to my attention that with enough effort, focus, and porn I can make myself orgasm with even the most terrible toys, but my favorite toys are the ones that always get me there and help me have great consistent orgasms. Let’s be honest, if I wanted to work super hard to have a great orgasm… I probably wouldn’t be using sex toys in the first place. I’m not sure if I’ll keep this as a consistent rating, but if you like it let me know in the comments!!!
Like many people, women particularly, orgasms are not always super easy for me to have. For reference, my orgasm-inducing scale is a 1 (worst) to 10 (best) scale with the Magic Wand Original at about a 9 (offering awesome and consistent, but not 100% inevitable, orgasms) and cheap battery-powered buzzy vibrators at a 1.
The Jopen Vanity Vr3 falls at about a 6 for me. It’s not perfect. It’s probably not going to ever completely blow my mind or consistently bring me or orgasm, but those rumbly internal vibrations are pretty awesome and go a long way for redeeming this toy for me.
This toy is good for those looking for both external and particularly internal stimulation, but even the flexibility of the shaft and clitoral arm won’t make it work for every body type. Those also looking for strong non-buzzy clitoral vibration should keep looking. Honestly, the high price tag (<$110) of this toy makes it difficult to recommend because for that kind of money I basically want my toys to make me orgasm and cook me dinner, and this toy did not feel worth the money to me.
The Jopen Vanity Vr3 can be purchased at… well I can’t seem to find it available anymore.
Instead, here’s a better, and cheaper, alternative: L’Amourose Prism VII at SheVibe.
I purchased this toy for my own use, but affiliate links are used within this post. This does not affect or change my opinions, and all thoughts expressed are my own.
That is far too expensive of a vibrator to have “meh” category clitoral vibrations. Come on, now, Jopen.
