Did I enjoy using the ALIVE ONE?

My Personal Experiences with ALIVE ONE

Hello Adventurers! Let’s get into the ALIVE ONE Masturbator! For those of you who have been reading some of my other reviews, you’ll know I’m a sucker for well-designed packaging (of course I’m talking about the product box), and the ALIVE ONE certainly delivered! With a beautifully designed box, excellent product reveal, and a useful instruction manual situated on one of the box’s sides, I give two cheers to the product packaging design folks — well done!

First Use

The first real thought/impression I had of the ALIVE ONE itself was: “Oh, I wonder if I could get a different entry point…” as the provided is a vulva/vaginal style silicone entry point that caps off the top of the toy. After jokingly wrestling with this for a moment in my mind (yes, I’m gay, we know this!), I proceeded. WOW! There were SO many vibration options. The ALIVE ONE is marketed as having “10+ Vibration Modes” but, they don’t emphasize the “+” as much as you’d think. There seemed to be so many options!

Some Notes

When using this toy, I would recommend avoiding much of your own movement (aka thrusting or tugging with your hand/penis) as the ALIVE ONE will largely do all of this for you (some settings more than others), and doing so yourself tends to shake the inner mechanism which will jostle it causing it to hit the sides of the sleeve. I can’t imagine this is highly problematic but, I also can’t imagine such jostling can be good for the overall mechanics of the device. So, all this to say, let yourself sit back, relax and enjoy, and let the ALIVE ONE do the work for you.

How is the ALIVE ONE designed

ALIVE ONE How is the ALIVE ONE designed

This toy looks great! Despite its larger size (as compared to other personal masturbators), it still retains the classification of being "sleek," in my eyes. Additionally, overall, it does feel good, especially if you find the setting that works best for you! My only note to design would be to incorporate some means by which one could either tighten or loosen the circumference of the internal entry mechanism, so as to have more or less of a squeeze on one's penis. But, this is just me being knit-picky, as this is an excellent toy!

The ALIVE ONE: User Convenience Reviewed

ALIVE ONE The ALIVE ONE: User Convenience Reviewed

Overall, the ALIVE ONE is a very easy-to-use toy. The entry point is clear, there are very few buttons that control a great deal of the available settings, and process of cleaning the product is also fairly manageable. Also, barring any connectivity issues you run into syncing headphones to the toy — which is a feature that allows for audible moaning, what?? — it is fairly easy to engage in this added special feature (more on this below). Be that as it may, some things to consider: if you are someone who experiences issues with mobility/grip, it may be helpful to utilize the provided suction cup mount which can be attached to the toy and then a surface such as glass, tile, etc. Additionally, when removing the internal sleeve for cleaning, some may experience difficulty in detaching said sleeve from the internal mechanism.

Is the ALIVE ONE a quality sex toy?

ALIVE ONE Is the ALIVE ONE a quality sex toy?

As far as I have experienced, this toy is made well. Not only does it feel as such, I think it also looks high quality, operates with consistency, and gives me confidence that it will do so for a while. For an automated toy, it is fairly quiet, save for when you may move too much yourself and jostle the internal mechanism, thus making it hit the side of the internal walls (as previously mentioned). My only concern, as it pertains to quality, comes from my noticing some of the water-based lube tends to run down the inside of the internal walls of the toy. I haven't run into any issues from this just yet but, I would be concerned of lube reaching the piston motor/mechanical components at the bottom of the inside of the toy that the internal sleeve attaches to, thus potentially causing electrical damage or buildup.

A Closer Look at the ALIVE ONE’s Price Tag

ALIVE ONE A Closer Look at the ALIVE ONE’s Price Tag

All-in-all, this is a very expensive toy, in my opinion. But, comparatively with other products, the ALIVE ONE seems to be among the price range of other similar personal masturbators. That being said, the ALIVE website often runs significant promos and discounts, and you may be able to find other such opportunities on other sites. Is it worth it? Well, if you have the funds, yes. Also, it does come with a bonus KY lube, suction cup mount, and is made of quality materials, one could argue that it's a good product for the price paid.

How Well Did the ALIVE ONE Perform?

ALIVE ONE How Well Did the ALIVE ONE Perform?

Performance-wise, the ALIVE ONE, up to this point of my using it, seems to maintain a consistency of high quality performance. I haven't had it die on me, heat up from use, nor have I run into any issues thus far. The numerous vibration/movement modes certainly feel good — you'll likely find ones you like more than others — and I love that the battery lasts so long (shout out to the edgers out there!)! And finally, with a fairly quick charge (compared to other similar products), and a low sound output, I would say this product is a high performer overall!

Assessing the Packaging of the ALIVE ONE

ALIVE ONE Assessing the Packaging of the ALIVE ONE

Cheers! Brava! Bravo! Well done to the ALIVE teams that were in charge of packaging the ALIVE ONE. Not only was the box designed well, but it also beautifully displays the ALIVE ONE product and provides useful instructions (on the side of the box) for toy usage. Due to this, by no means is the packaging discreet — unless someone has a certain concept in their mind for what flashlights look like and they only look at the front of the box — but hey, it is a sex toy after all!

Exploring the Materials and Care of the ALIVE ONE

ALIVE ONE Exploring the Materials and Care of the ALIVE ONE

The ALIVE ONE is made from various materials. Primarily, you will be interacting with the plastic of the outer shell (which you hold for use) and the internal sleeve and vaginal-style entry point made from silicone + TPE. Additional materials would include metals, wiring, etc. and other electronic components to make up the "automatic" and "piston/rotor" portions of the device. Weighing in at 22oz/600g, the ALIVE ONE is a fairly lightweight toy which promotes more ease of use. As cleaning/care goes, despite some need for a little bit of strength/motor skills to remove the internal sleeve for cleaning, the process of care is certainly manageable. Simply remove the internal sleeve, grab your toy cleaner, soak, rinse under lukewarm water, and let dry. This product does not come with a storage box but, it does have an easy remove cap/lid that covers the entry point for storing.

Special feature

ALIVE ONE Special feature

Is that someone moaning? YES! It is! Well, after you connect your headphones to the ALIVE ONE personal masturbator, there is a special little feature that allows for you to turn on/off an audible moaning option while using the toy. This is the first time I have experienced this in a toy and I must say, it’s certainly an interesting feature. For me personally, I don’t feel much compelled to connect my headphones and use this feature as, well, I wouldn’t classify admin work much in my arousal accelerators but, hey! This may be something that you can’t wait to use! After all, your pleasure journey is yours!
