SVAKOM Amy Vibrator Review

I’ve heard the SVAKOM name a lot in the sex toy universe over the past few months. When I got an email out of the blue from Violet Fragrance, an official seller of SVAKOM, asking if I’d like to review some products for them, I was intrigued enough to agree. I’ve got to say, I’m a little suspicious of SVAKOM products. I don’t really have a good reason for being so, but there’s a few things that make me nervous. The first thing is that the main sellers of SVAKOM products are various companies on amazon.com, including Violet Fragrance who so kindly sent me Amy to review. The second thing is the huge variability in the price of the products. For example, Amy is $109 on svakom.net, but only $49.99 on Violet Fragrance’s amazon.com shop, and only $31.99 by a different amazon.com seller. How can the same product be sold on one site for three times as much as another and still be profitable for all sellers?  Either these things are dirt cheap to make and have been hugely marked up on their creator’s website, or there’s something fishy going on at amazon. The third reason SVAKOM make me feel weird is this bizarre photo ad: 715fzslk8gl-_sl1200_

What the actual fuck? Bar Flirting?! Who casually takes a vibrator to a bar?! And what exactly is a Lovers Couple? Do I have to wear a bikini to have Romance in the Wild? Seriously, I have so many questions about this ad! Perhaps it was meant as a joke? You’d think a US-based sex toy company would come up with a sensible “suitable for” add. Like this: “Suitable for: clitoral stimulation, g-spot stimulation, massage, sexy shower times, nipple stimulation, perineum stimulation” . There you go, SVAKOM, I fixed your ad with six things your sex toy is actually suitable for, without even breaking a sweat.

Anyway, enough about my unease, and onwards with the product review!  SVAKOM Amy comes in a nicely packaged box. The outer sleeve has a picture of Amy on the front, and the inner box has SVAKOM written on it, quite stylishly I must add. The box is pretty sturdy so could be used for long term storage. Amy also comes with a soft grey storage pouch for travel, or just general use if you’d like it to take up less space in the toy draw.

Charging SVAKOM Amy up is really easy, you just plug the pin end of the charger into the bottom of the toy and the USB end into a USB port. Its buttons flash with a blue light when it is charging which change to constant when it is fully charged (which doesn’t take long, although it did come with a little charge). Amy is supposed to be 100% waterproof, but the charging port is completely open making me a bit nervous. When I wash it I make sure I keep the metal part of the toy out of any water, for fear it would damage the charging part of the toy if it got inside. Now that I’ve used it a enough times to write this review, I tried fully submerging it in my sink whilst it was on to make sure it is indeed 100% waterproof. All is cool, it still buzzes happily and turns on and off after this ceremonial dunking.

SVAKOM Amy is made of a lovely deep purple silicone that feels really nice to the touch. You can also get in it black, white or pastel pink. The toy is petite with a slim shaft and wider head. The shaft has a gentle curve to it, ideal for locating the g-spot. At the lower part of the toy are the controls: just three buttons. Holding down the middle button (with the S on it) for a few seconds turns the toy on. It starts on a constant speed at middle intensity (level 3). You can then used the up and down arrow buttons to alter the intensity of the vibrations. There are 5 levels in total. The first 3 feel quite rumbly and nice, the top two are a bit too harsh and buzzy for me. The lowest level is so weak you can barely feel it. For my preference, that leaves 2 enjoyable speeds. These really are very nice.

Clicking the S button again moves the toy on to the patterns. This is when my confusion started. I just don’t get these patterns. Usually toys have tried and tested patterns, like pulsating or oscillating the intensity up and down in a smooth waves. These things feel good when applied to a clitoris or vagina. The SVAKOM Amy is different. It does crazy things that make no sense. And the controls seem to stop doing anything. It’s like it’s scrolling through 8 different modes at different levels without you pressing anything. It goes from the lowest level (the one you can’t feel) then suddenly jumps to the most intense in a very unnerving fashion. Then it starts a quick oscillation that changes speed after two waves, then starts with this weird pulsing, where the speeds jump all over the place, then it’s back to level one which makes me think the damn thing has given up and turned itself off. WHAT IS HAPPENING?! I AM SO CONFUSED!!

As I said before, pushing the buttons seem to do nothing once I’ve moved it on to patterns. To get it back to the much more sane constant speeds I have to hold down the S for a few seconds to turn Amy off, then turn it back on again. I’m hoping I have a faulty one. If the toy was actually designed to do what it is doing the designer is out of their mind. It would make sense if the S button was suppose to change the various patterns and the up and down arrows change the intensity of the patterns. Perhaps mine is just stuck cycling through all the possibilities without me pressing any buttons.

In use, the constant speeds worked just fine. The rumble on setting two and three felt really nice when applied to my clit. The head of the toy is a good shape for clit massage, it’s flat with a really narrow edge at the top which you can use to be more precise. SVAKOM Amy also did a good job as a g-spot vibrator. The flat head and gentle curve means the toy easily found my g-spot and the toy is rigid enough to apply firm pressure, exactly what I need in order to orgasm from g-spot stimulation. It wasn’t quite right for me to get me there alone however, I needed a good clit vibe as well.

I really liked how slim the SVAKOM Amy is. It meant I didn’t need to be as warmed up as I would need to be to use my girthy toys, so with the aid of water-based lube I could introduce g-spot stimulation earlier in my masterbation sessions.

Overall, the SVAKOM Amy was a mixed bag for me. Despite my unease, I did have a pretty good time with Amy on the constant speeds. I think the patterns on mine must be broken. If I get the chance to try another one I’ll update this with the functionality of the patterns. I understand SVAKOM have tried to develop more affordable luxury sex toys, that have decent motors, made of silicone, are rechargeable and waterproof. I think they’ve done a decent job of achieving this. However, the huge variability in the price of the products doesn’t quite make sense. Perhaps as the company develops some the price will become more stable.

**Many thanks to Violet Fragrance for sending me this product free of charge in exchange for an honest review. This in no way altered my opinion of the vibrator.

  1. Thanks for the review. Strange about such a price difference. IF you were paying for it what price would you put on it?

    1. Hmm, interesting question. It’s got all the features of a high end toy: waterproof, rechargable, silicone and the motor is decent. But the functions are weird (which could be because mine is faulty though, its hard to tell). So I’d probably price it between £30 – £40 or $40- $50. Then again, I’ve no experience of costing sex toys so I’m not sure how it’s worked out normally, I’m just thinking of other similar toys and what they cost.
