I’m going to start this off by saying that strong vibrations are not my thing. My precious little clit turns off when things are far too powerful or incredibly buzzy. So my opinion is coming from a place where the Hitachi Magic Wand is this terrifying beast that is far too much for my body to handle for more than a nice back massage.
I received my Mimic after a video of mine on my Instagram was noticed by the Clandestine Devices Instagram. I then got the opportunity to have a super lovely conversation with their rep, who I must say is a fantastic human. I loved being able to discuss the fun and struggles of being a sex store worker with someone who representing a sex toy company. So my initial impression of the company was great.
Did I actually enjoy the toy itself? Yes! Very much yes! This is honestly my new favourite toy. I have probably used this toy more than any other toy that I’ve owned. I’ve always struggled achieving orgasm from vibration, but this one made it easy and possible.
I really loved how easily I am able to use this toy during penetrative sex. The small tip allows it to be held to stimulate the clit while not causing any discomfort to my partner. The vibrations are able to be set at a low enough setting that my partner does not have to feel the vibration if it is something they are not enjoying.
While it does have more than just a constant vibration pattern, I mostly stick to using the first setting rather than the different pulsations. Though what I do really like is that you are able to change the intensity of the vibrations regardless of which function you have the toy set to. So you can experience the various patterns without it being too overwhelming.
It is such a versatile toy that gives you many options on how you want to use it to stimulate your genitals. If you want something very pin point and direct, it’s got a shape that allows for that. If you want a toy that covers your entire clit, it’s able to provide. If you want your inner lips gently stimulated while also stimulating your clit or vaginal opening, it’s happy to help!
If you are planning on using lubrication with this toy, please only use water-based lubricants, or hybrid lubricants with a very small percentage of silicone in them. Avoid using any oil based lubricants as they will not react well with the silicone material. Please also remember to wash the toy after use with a cleaner to make sure nothing is left on the toy while you store it. Take care of your toy and it will take care of you.

Does this work as more than just clitoral stimulation?
This toy can definitely stimulate more than just the clit and lips. I found it was one of my favourite toys for stimulating the vaginal opening. While it’s not exactly shaped for insertion, it just gave the perfect tickle of sensation.
The more curvier side of the Mimic is also great for resting the scrotum on, giving them a nice vibrating cradle with the small curve on the very tip tickling the perineum.
Other fun ways to use
With the way it’s wings go out on the mimic, it can be a fun addition to a rope scene. You can have rope hold down the toy flat on your genitals by wrapping a strand of rope on both sides of the toy. Tugging at the rope slightly will help add even more stimulation!
Reasons I would recommend this toy
While I totally recognize that this toy isn’t for everyone, it is definitely one I would only recommend for the right person. As someone who, up until very recently has been working at a sex store, this was one of my favourite toys to recommend for someone who is looking for something on the milder side, or has trouble holding certain toys. While it may look like a weird sea creature, the design is perfect for those who cannot hold regular toys easily. Not having to tense up your hand to make a fist really helps open this toy for more people. It’s not going to give you that super powerful vibration that some people might be looking for, but if you’re looking for a much gentler vibration, this toy is fantastic.
Reasons I wouldn’t recommend this toy
As I’ve said previously, the main reason I would not recommend this toy to someone is due to the power. For some, this wont be enough to excite your bits. It might just be an annoying tickle that leaves you in regret. It’s definitely not a power house toy.
The vibrations themselves are also a bit more on the buzzy side, though not a super high pitched buzz, but definitely not rumbley. While I find it’s not one that has ever made me go numb, if you are a little more sensitive, on the higher options you may run into that issue.
The Mimic is also little bit pricey, so if you’re looking for an inexpensive option, this may also not be for you.
So if the Mimic sounds like the sea creature of your dreams, I definitely recommend trying it out.
