My Verdict

If you had asked me before I used the Dame Eva during sex whether I recommended it or not, my reply would have been a little hesitant. As a solo play toy, it's not terrible, but there are better toys out there. However, if you, like me, struggle to orgasm with your partner on top or during other positions, I implore you to give the Eva a try. I'm really not exaggerating when I say that it has changed how I view sex with my partner! I no longer feel that I have to be on top to have an orgasm during penetrative sex — the Eva has opened up all kinds of paths to orgasms in every position. It was easy to use, comfortable for both of us, and even gave him some vibes, too. However, the biggest plus is that the Dame Eva helped me feel even more connected to my partner.

Buy, if you...

  1. Find it difficult to orgasm from penetration alone
  2. Want a vibrator you can use during sex that won't get in the way
  3. Like the idea of a using a vibrator hands-free
  4. Are interested in trying something different!

Don't buy, if you...

  1. Prefer rumbly vibrations over buzzy
  2. Want a quiet vibrator
  3. Are on a budget
  4. Aren't prepared for some learning and adjustment

About The Dame Eva

The Dame Eva is pretty tiny clitoral vibrator with a unique design that allows it be used hands-free! It has two flexible 'wings' that nestle underneath the labia, anchoring it next to your clit as it buzzes away. There are three vibration speeds to choose from, controlled with a button on the top. Dame created the Eva with the idea that it can be worn during sex to give vulva-owners that all-important clit stimulation we need to orgasm. Since it's so small and doesn't need to be held, it won't get in the way of you or your partner. But, does it live up to the hype?

The Dame Eva: Unveiling My Experience

My Personal Experiences with Dame Eva

I’ve been wanting to try the Dame Eva for a loooong time, ever since I first read about it. It’s one of those stories that restores my faith in the sex toy industry — two smart, professional women set out to create a sex toy that closes the orgasm gap and gives vulva-owners the pleasure they deserve, which ends up being the most crowdfunded sex toy in history! However, this little vibrator has turned out to be quite controversial. Whilst some praise it as being their saving grace, or even “an act of feminism” (as one reviewer called it), others have been left disappointed by its performance.

Trying the Eva Alone

My first impression of the Dame Eva was that it was a whole lot smaller than I imagined. I actually took a photo of it next to the We-Vibe Tango X, a standard-sized bullet vibrator, for comparison, which you can see in the ‘Materials & Care’ section below. First off, I tried it by myself to get the hang of how to put it in place. I read from other users that lube makes it impossible for the wings to grip your labia, so I added only a very small amount to my clitoris beforehand. It took maybe three attempts to find the right placement, which pleasantly surprised me. Then, I tried turning it on, and promptly pushed it out of place. Annoying. The next time, I turned it on first and then placed it. It was definitely buzzy — probably the most buzzy vibrator I’ve tried — but I actually wasn’t that turned off by that. I pushed it against my clit a bit, and the ridge on the back provided some nice, direct stimulation. Wearing it while giving oral sex was also nice — I got some good hands-free stimulation, but it did fall down a bit.

Wearing the Eva During Sex

This is really where the Dame Eva shines! I often struggle during partnered sex to get the clitoral stimulation I need, especially in missionary or doggy-style positions. I was really excited about using the Eva in positions like this, as other toys I’ve tried have been too bulky and got in the way. Well, I’m happy to report that the Eva was a total game-changer! After my solo practice, it was quick and easy to place, and stayed in place the whole time. The best part, though, was that it took missionary sex to a whole new level. The pressure of my partner on top pushed the ridge on the back of the Eva right where it needed to be, and it moved around a little bit as he moved for an incredible massaging feeling. It was truly heavenly, and I literally can’t wait to use it more and more!

How it’s designed

Dame Eva How it’s designed

The Dame Eva, as you might have already noticed, looks a bit different than most other vibrators! I think it looks a bit like a little crab, while a colleague called it "a hug"! The front of the Eva is smooth, whilst the back (the bit that sits against your clit) has a ridge in the center. Then, there are the two 'wings' on either side, which are flexible and springy. At less than 2" tall, this vibrator is also very small!

The Usability of the Dame Eva

Dame Eva The Usability of the Dame Eva

I was expecting the Dame Eva to be really difficult to put in place, but it actually stayed put without too much trouble. I did have to make sure to wipe off any excess lube around my labia before I tried it, though. It only has three vibration settings, which are controlled by a button at the top. It's very simple to control, but actually pressing the button when the Eva is in position can be tricky. Since you have to use a bit of force to press it down, it often moves the Eva out of place, too.

Analyzing the Quality of the Dame Eva

While the Dame Eva doesn't exactly feel cheap, it's not the most luxurious vibrator either. It's made from all-over medical-grade silicone, which feels soft and silky to the touch. However, when you move it around, it does feel a little rattly inside. I do appreciate, though, that it comes with its own charging case and storage bag, giving you two ways to store it safely.

A Closer Look at the Dame Eva’s Price Tag

Dame Eva A Closer Look at the Dame Eva’s Price Tag

I just can't figure out why the Eva is so expensive! It's the priciest vibrator made by Dame, but, in my opinion, it's not their best. The motor is incredibly buzzy, and not intensely strong. The design, of course, is very unique, but Dame have been making this toy for a while at this point — surely they're manufacturing it in large enough batches to lower the price a bit? I would say that, if you really want a small hands-free vibrator to use during sex, it could be worth it. But, if you want to use it as a panty vibrator or for solo use, I would perhaps go for something else.

Does it Deliver on Pleasure?

Dame Eva Does it Deliver on Pleasure?

As I've mentioned, the Dame Eva is very, very buzzy. At the lowest setting, it felt too tickly for me, so I stuck to the highest setting, which was strong enough to feel pleasurable. However, at the highest speed, the battery life of the Eva is only one hour. Charging takes four hours in its little inductive charging case, and there's supposed to be an LED indicator to show you when it's charged. Unfortunately, though, I couldn't see it clearly.

Packaging

Dame Eva Packaging

All of Dame's packaging is really up my alley. The box that the Eva comes in is simple, clean and not too 'girly', and inside is a plain pink box with the Dame logo barely visible. This could be a nice, discreet way to keep the charging case, cable and storage bag together if you so wish. Also in the box, you get a set of instructions and a sticker, which is now stuck proudly on my laptop.

Reviewing the Material Choices and Care Guidelines

Dame Eva Reviewing the Material Choices and Care Guidelines

The Dame Eva is covered in 100% medical-grade silicone. This means that it meets strict safety standards set by the FDA — the same as those required for medical products used inside the body. It's non-toxic, non-porous, and completely waterproof. While the main body contains a motor, the 'wings' of the Eva are just silicone, with no posable wires inside. Because it's waterproof, this toy is super easy to clean. Just lather it up with a mild, unscented soap and some water, making sure to get into all the crevices, before rinsing and leaving to dry before storing away in the charging case or storage pouch.

FAQ

How to make the Dame Eva stay in place?
Since everyone's body is shaped differently, there isn't one magic way that anyone can use to make the Dame Eva stay put. Some may prefer to wear it higher up, while others might find it stays in place better when positioned further down. You can also wear it tucked into the inner labia minora instead of the outer labia majora lips. Also, try to keep any lube away from the labia to give it the most grip.
What's the difference between the Dame Eva and Eva 2?
The Dame Eva that you can purchase now was originally known as the Eva II. This is because it's an upgraded version of the original, which started off as a crowdfunded project and was Dame's first sex toy.
How does the Dame Eva work?
The Dame Eva works by anchoring itself between your labia (vulva lips), sitting right next to your clitoris. It has three steady vibration speeds to choose from, which are controlled by pressing a button on the top of its body.
Where is the charging light on the Dame Eva?
The charging light on the Dame Eva is located on the front side of the toy, near the power and vibration setting button. When your Eva is in its charging case, this light will blink green until its fully charged, when it will stay green. When your Eva has a low battery, this light will blink red. The light was designed to be discreet, so it might be a bit dim in a fully lit room. Just cup your hand over the light if you're struggling to see it.
