Review: Jopen Opal

IMG_8562.JPG

Occasionally a sex toy will pique your interest enough for you to want to get it for review, even if you are not sure you’re going to love it. I am not a fan of rabbit style vibrators, so much so that I’ve avoided choosing any to receive for reviews. However, when the Jopen Opal used two very favored materials together for the first time, I just had to check it out.

The Opal is a rabbit vibrator created by Jopen. It is rechargeable and fully waterproof. It’s operated by two motors, one in the head and the other in the external stimulator. There are two buttons on the shaft, one for power and one to control ten different vibrating functions; five speeds and five patterns. The Opal is 4.5″ in total length and 1.75″ in diameter at its maximum thickness. It comes in purple and pink.

Usually, dual medium toys consist of silicone and a plastic base, but a silicone base & stimulator plus a glass shaft? That’s some impressive design work. The glass rod isn’t 100% glass throughout but has silicone at the center which makes the Opal feel sturdy but also easy to hold. The charging port is located on the bottom of the toy. It’s hidden so the toy can be waterproof, but you can easily feel for a small hole and pop the charger into it.

The head of the toy reminds me of a morphed miniature cupcake: a half-sphere top which tapers down into the base (in this vibrator’s case, the shaft.) Unfortunately for the Opal, the only type of cupcakes I like are the baked goods kind. The head doesn’t seem to have the gusto to hit my G-spot with accuracy and power. I think that if the head was smaller and more concentrated like the nJoy Pure Wand (the bigger end), then it might actually be able to deliver it’s G-spot promises. The top is too wide and not round enough for my taste.

Turning the toy on, I was immediately shocked at how loud it was. I was thinking that it would produce a medium level noise, a sound close to the Ina 2 or Tantus Rumble. NOPE. The Opal is almost to the roaring level of my Magic Wand Rechargeable, but without the same amount of power. I’m going to honest, Jopen, if I’m masturbating with a vibrator that’s going to be heard from the next room, it better be the Magic Wand Rechargeable or something as equally awesome.

Despite my shock at the noise, the vibrations did not entirely disappoint me. The Opal manages to create rumbly vibrations throughout its shaft. These vibrations don’t extend too much into the handle, so my hand does not get irritated when holding it. I won’t really say much about the different vibration levels, they were decent but not powerful, and the patterns were average.

Going down to the part that makes this toy a “Rabbit,” the external stimulator isn’t anything special. The vibrations, in my opinion, are still rumbly like those of the shaft. However, like the majority of rabbit vibes, when used tandem with thrusting it isn’t ideal. When I continuously push the Opal against my G-spot, the toy’s arm mashes awkwardly against my body. The external stimulator feels like a minuscule fist knocking inaccurately against my clit and pubic mound.

Jopen created a safe toy that experiments with a combination of materials the sex toy world hasn’t seen before. Though the Opal is slightly innovative, it, unfortunately, did not have enough ingenuity to make a “rabbit” vibrator work; at least for my body. If you’re looking for G-spot impact in unison with clitoral stimulation, I would say that your money is best spent on two separate toys. I personally recommend the nJoy Pure Wand (an A+ G-spot dildo) and either the Magic Wand Rechargeable (broad vibrations) or the We-Vibe Tango (pinpoint vibrations).

A big thank you to SheVibe for sending me the Jopen Opal in exchange for my unbiased, honest review.

  1. Well, this sounds kind of terrible.

    Still, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a glass vibrator before, and that has potential, so props to Jopen for innovating?

  2. Bummer! This looked really promising as a concept, but when I saw the design (standard long straight shaft with short clit arm) I was skeptical. Maybe if a better design like the Miss Bi or Nova that seems to work for people was used, this would be a really cool toy… But props for sleek innovation, I guess. Still kinda wish the innovation was focused on design over materials though.

  3. Do you know if Jopen/others have developed a toy like the Opal (glass/silicon), minus the annoying clit arm? Because that toy, I would totally try.
