Toy Review: Key by Jopen Charms Plush Textured Silicone Vibrator

Key Jopen

The slogan for the Key range by Jopen is ‘small package, big reward’ and, put simply, it doesn’t lie. The first thing to love about the Charms Plush Textured mini clitoral vibe is the price. For a wonderfully modest £20*, you’re getting a great bit of kit that balances a touch of luxury with a price tag that doesn’t make you recoil in horror and wonder where the money went.

The super, amazingly soft and smooth silicone cover feels softer than velvet. With its rounded criss-cross design, the Charms Plush is textured to look like a really comfortable pillow, or blanket. There’s just enough texture to add an extra thrill or friction when lying it flat against the genitals and rubbing back and forth. Couple this with a splash of water-based lubricant and the silky silicone, soft textures and five pleasant vibration patterns offer a very satisfying experience.

Control the Jopen Charms Plush with the single stainless alloy button on the base of the vibrator. Push once to turn it on and then each time you want to change the vibration mode. Once you’ve scrolled through all five, rather than turning off after the final setting it goes back to the first consistent buzz, allowing for uninterrupted pleasure even if you’re feeling indecisive about which vibe pattern to settle on. Turn it off at any point by holding the button down for three seconds.

When it comes to power, the Charms Plush does have a nippy little buzz about it. Thankfully though, as it’s a clitoral vibrator Jopen haven’t made the settings so intense that it leaves you feeling numb. Perfect for those that like a gentler level of stimulation.

Despite offering a satisfying level of vibration, it’s also this element that lets the Charms Plush down. After being wooed by the attractive packaging and delightful silicone, when you turn it on and hear it, it’s at that point you remember, “ah, yeah I did only spend 20 quid on this.” On the back of the box it says it’s ‘whisper quiet’, but quiet it ain’t. Perhaps it’s quiet if the stereo is on, or next door are having a party, but otherwise I’d liken the noise level to that of an electric razor. So, it’s not whisper quiet as billed (which is the only reason to highlight this), but that’s no reason to dismiss this toy; it’s far from being the nosiest vibe out there.

A practical way of combating this excess sound is to hold it right at the end as it seems to be the control area that rattles. Although that dampens the noise, it’s not exactly practical if you want your hand to be doing other nice things to other areas of your/your partner’s body.

Anyway, enough moaning…

For such a little bullet it also has great versatility. Although the primary function of the Charms Plush is as a clitoral vibrator, it is also possible to use it for shallow vaginal penetration. Measuring a total of four inches in length and with no safety handle or loop for retrieval, it wouldn’t be advisable to insert the whole thing, but using the tip and first couple of inches is enough to stimulate the sensitive area of the vagina’s opening.

It’s final hidden secret is that the Plush textured ‘sleeve’ can be removed. If the super soft silicone gets too comfortable and you need a firmer feel then it’s possible to throw the quilt off the main body of the vibe. This is tricky as there’s not much at the bottom of the toy to grip in order to pull the sleeve off. However, it is doable: hold it with your nails/finger tips at the rim of the control button and then pull the sleeve to slip it off.

Underneath, the bullet is smooth (untextured) and firm. Without the sleeve none of the vibration is dampened by the extra layer of silicone, so the five settings will feel stronger.

Whether you’re new to toys, or already have a draw full of them, there are definitely elements of the Charms Plush that both parties can enjoy. From it’s friendly size and price, to the appreciation of the quality materials and textures of the sleeve this could be considered a key piece in any pleasure chest.
