The Kissing Swan is a well needed update on the more traditional Jessica Rabbit. With it’s luxury packaging which consists of a solid magnetic box for storage which features an image of the toy clearly and information about the toy in six languages. If you wanted to keep what was in the box a secret, you’d need somewhere else to store it. Upon opening the box, you are presented with the instructions which rest in a cardboard folder featuring the swan logo, complete with a velcro clasp. Think this packaging style is familiar? Swan also created the leaf vibrators range.
Also in the box there is the charger, and a quality storage bag. Both have the Swan Vibrator symbol on them which is a huge plus. I have so many chargers and toy bags that it’s great to know which is which at just a glimpse. The charger also comes with all the attachments for different country plug sockets so it’s all ready for travel.
The toy itself has a very sleek design. It feels quite velvety, made of 100% silicone this vibrator has a small seam running lengthways and no other materials. You cannot feel the seam when it is in use. It also features some raised marks near the base which aren’t an issue as this area is only held. It is a pink- purple color and measures at 8.5 inches in total.
The Kissing Swan takes up to three hours to fully charge. Yes, that’s three hours of anticipation! There is a small port on the base of the toy where it is plugged into the charger, it is self sealing to ensure this toy in waterproof. When fully charged it can offer up to 6.5 hours of fun, so perhaps worth the wait. The vibrator arrives locked. This is a great feature as it means when travelling you won’t set off your vibrator in your bag. One day, I’m sure I will get caught out with this! To unlock the Kissing Swan, hold both buttons for 5 seconds. To lock, do the same.
How it performs
The Kissing Swan has two buttons. One for the rotating shaft, and one for the kissing lips clit stimulator. They work on a press to increase system. I much prefer this than clicking, as it feels a more natural way to increase the power. Both functions work independently of each other so you can have the clit stimulator low and rotating shaft high, or vice versa. To turn the toy function off, you press each button once. This is good in case you need to turn the toy off quickly, however if you’re used to pushing once to click through speeds, to have it turn off when you want more power is a pain. It is something you soon become used to though. For a toy in the higher price range, I would expect it to have some preset settings which the Kissing Swan is lacking. Also, you can only increase speed. To decrease you have to turn the toy off and go through the speeds again. I would expect more from this toy. The bulbous end of the toy is easy to grip, and the buttons easy to locate. They are aesthetically pleasing as they are raised with silicone covering them.
So how do I rate it?
Replacing the traditional ears, are a small pair of lips. These are very flexible at the neck, yet sturdy where attached to the toy to ensure they hit the right spot. These kissing lips are amazing! I would happily just have those as a clit stimulator without the vibrator attached. Powered by a Powerbullet™, these lips were definitely made for kissing. They can bring me to climax in minutes. Unlike the rabbit ears which often missed my clit completely, these are flexible enough to get it right, and can range from a flutter to a serious vibration.
The shaft has a great shape, slightly curved head and tapered towards the ears where it is solid compared with the squashiness of the head. You will need to use a water based lube with this toy (never silicone lube with a silicone toy) as the silicone has some pull to it. The rotating shaft of the toy doesn’t work too well for me. I find that rather then the head of the toy rotating, as my muscles clench around it so tightly, that the base of the toy rotates no matter how hard I try to hold it still.
Overall a great update on the original, however missing a few of the features which should be associated with a toy of this price range.
