Over the years of reviewing sexytime tools for the Toy With Mes, I’ve come across quite a few of them. So you might call me something of an expert. Since there are so many toys, and only so many ways one might use them, one of my challenges is figuring out what differentiates one toy from the next because seriously? There’s only so many ways to honk your hooter and after a while these things all start looking alike to me, no matter how innovative they may be.
One thing I’ve learned by doing this gig is that when it comes to toys, like anything else, you get what you pay for. Sure, a simple, cheap dildo can get the job done, but sometimes you want something full of Awesome. Sometimes you want the luxury and the comfort and the durability and the ease of use. And sometimes, every once in a while, a toy comes out that is really pretty different from the others.
The Jimmyjane Form 3 is one of those toys.
I started by taking it out of the box because that’s always the first step, right? I mean, you can’t just go shoving a box up your noonie can you? Nay, nay. Square box, round hole, not gonna work, yo.
Ooooooooo. A tongue!
It looks very much like an extended, slightly curved and cupped tongue. Now, I’ve read that designers Yves Behar and Ethan Imboden did NOT intend for it to be reminiscent of a tongue… it just turned out that way! I find this hard to believe, but whatever dudes, we’ll go along with your little story. Regardless, the tongue is joined to/part of a “handle,” which is around the size and shape of an egg. Overall, the Form 3 is about 4″ long to the tip of the tongue and 2″ wide at the fattest part of the egg part.
Like all other Jimmyjane toys, this is also beautiful. It’s as beautiful as a sex toy can be. No giant, “realistic” cock with veins and hairy balls, this is more like a palm-sized, smoothly rounded and seamless sculpture, reminiscent of a computer mouse. Put in on your desk and only the most astute would even notice it.
The tongue portion is soft and flexible yet firm. Think of the consistency of an ear, which is pretty close—it’s like cartilage. The center of the tongue is thin and soft, while the outside edge is thicker and firmer. The intended use is to provide vibration via your own touch, pushing and pressing through the thin middle part of the tongue. Jimmyjane calls this “amplified touch.” That’s the theory.
In practice, I didn’t find this method very, shall-we-say, “fruitful,” but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the toy in my own way. Despite the fact that I am more of an “insertion” kinda gal, I thought the vibrations passing through the thick rim of the tongue was quite dreamy–no finger pressure necessary. Because of the shape and consistency of the tongue, it was easy to really pinpoint the stimulation and control the pressure, firm but not too hard.
Typical of Jimmyjane toys, the Form 3 is made from medical-grade, phthalate-free platinum silicone and stainless steel. The silicone has a nice satin finish that feels almost velvety. Though a water-based lube is recommended for use on ANY silicone toy, I tested silicone-based lube and there was absolutely no degradation (*as is the case on all of the higher-end silicone toys I’ve tested in the last few years).
Like many other microprocessor-controlled vibrators, it offers multiple patterns (four) and multiple intensity levels (five). My personal favorite is the binary ON-OFF-ON-OFF burst at full intensity. For such a small vibrator it is remarkably intense! Three buttons control all the functions: speed up, speed down, and pattern.
It’s rechargeable by means of placing it atop a small base that plugs into a wall-mount AC adapter. The base makes contact with two concentric metal contacts on the bottom of the vibrator.. no jacks, cords, or plugs to insert. The contacts are smooth and can even be used as a hard vibrating surface during play and don’t worry—you won’t get electrocuted. My husband promises! Placing the Form 3 in the cradle will turn it off if it is running, and a small light lets you know it’s charging. Using a lithium ion battery, the overall size remains remarkably small considering it can run over seven hours on a full charge!
It is completely waterproof and submersible. Not only does that mean you could have fun in your shower if you wanted to, it also makes it very easy to clean with soap and water, right in the sink, after a romp. Finally, though I’ve never had to use it, Jimmyjane’s standard three-year warranty is one of the best in the business.
So yes. Jimmyjane Form 3.
You need one. You do!
