Ok – take a seat because what I am about to say will most likely shock you. In fact, if you are a regular reader of my blog, it will most definitely shock you because what I am about to say even shocks me.
*says it super quickly* The Hot Octopuss Amo is incredible and I think it might be the one that actually comes closes to my We-Vibe Tango. :O I never thought, like ever, ever I would find a toy to dethrone the Tango, but it seems to the Hot Octopuss Amo has those kinda capabilities. I am excited about this toy. I just hope it lives up to my high expectations.
Toy stats from the Hot Octopuss Website:
The Amo has 5 vibrations settings – 1 static and 4 mixed as well as 5 levels of different intensities.
Completely cased in silicone with an ABS plastic base, which in my opinion, benefits the user because the silicone helps dampen the power of the Amo, it isn’t OTT in use. As well as that it also adds to user experience. Coating the Amo in silicone has meant that users now have the option to change how the Amo feels in use. The Amo is quite thick and broad at one side, while the other side points off to a flattened tip and gives a more defined point.
Power up and power down takes a good couple of seconds to achieve so it worth noting that as there is nothing sneaky, sneaky about this vibe. The power button is located beside the charging port and this button is also responsible for the different vibration patterns, once power on. The Amo is charged via a pin style USB charger. The other two buttons on the opposite side control the vibration intensities.
So user experience, how does the Hot Octopuss Amo fair out?
The Amo is as good as I expected it to be. I thought it would be similar to the Hot Octopuss DiGiT, I reviewed a few months back and I am right – it is but better. I wasn’t keen on the handle of the DiGiT – but also the shape of the Amo works better for me. I really enjoy the options of play that the Amo give – I can choose to enjoy both broad and pinpoint stimulation.
The vibrations of the Amo are so powerful I can feel them through my jeans. So much so my clit will actually start to react under the fabric, which is awesome if you wanna have some warmup fun without removing clothing.
I find the silicone coating super handy – sometimes my Tango can become to slippy in use. The silicone on the Amo is smooth but every so slightly draggy and this drag allows me to keep a firm grip on it during use!
The only downfalls I can find with the Amo are – I can feel the vibrations a little in the ABS plastic handle – they are ever so slightly buzzy but I am not going be using the vibe against my body so it isn’t an issue in use for me. The other thing is 2 to 3 hours charging time provides you with only 40 minutes playtime.
The Amo is quite cheap though at £49 (at the time for posting) – that is extremely reasonable for a waterproof, 100% body-safe toy, which is also rechargeable! While it hasn’t knocked the Tango off the top spot, it is a damn good alternative when the Tango‘s battery is dead!
The Hot Octopuss Amo was sent to me from Hot Octopuss in exchange for an honest and impartial review – this however in no way changes my opinion on the item. What I honestly think, you read! All images displayed of Hot Octopuss AMo are taken by myself!
