Zumio X

The Zumio X (or Xena) is a clitoral stimulator that with a SpiroTip™ that moves in quick, circular motions. This delivers precise, targeted stimulation directly to the clitoris or the surrounding area. It does not vibrate, but instead uses very rapid movements to provide pulse-like stimulation.

My Personal Experiences

My Personal Experiences with Zumio X

If there’s one thing you learn about the Zumio X as you research it, it’s that it’s not a vibrator! In all four models, Zumio have gone to great lengths to emphasize how their SpiroTip™ technology is different — and doesn’t come along with all the negatives of vibrations. It’s more like a wonderful swirling finger, according to SheVibe. That tempting claim is what originally caught my attention.

So, Is It Really Better Than a Vibrator?

In short, no. However, I really don’t know if it’s fair comparison. When I was looking at the Zumio X, I hadn’t seen any clips of it in motion, and I really expected it to feel similar to a gentle, caressing finger. But when I actually tried it out, it was completely different — and I was disappointed. Instead, the rotations were extremely fast, and felt much more like a regular vibrator. If I had to compare the sensations of the Zumio X to another toy, it would be the rumbly vibrations of my Tango X bullet vibrator. “But Rachel!”, I hear you cry, “You’re obsessed with the Tango X!”. Yes, I am, it’s true — and the Zumio’s rumbliness did feel good! But, part of why I love the Tango X so much is because of its versatility. I didn’t want to use the Zumio X during partner sex, because I was afraid of pressing it too hard and breaking the tip. I enjoy firm stimulation, but the only way to do it with the Zumio is to hold the toy flat against your body and go for broad stimulation over precision. So, it may well be better than a very buzzy vibrator, but to me it’s pretty indistinguishable from a rumbly one.

Sixteen Hours Later…

The Zumio X has one very big caveat when compared to other vibrators: a whopping 16 hour charging time! Zumio have gone with inductive charging for their products, which, if you’ve ever charged your phone wirelessly, you’ll know isn’t the fastest method. This was hugely off-putting for me. The idea of such a long charging time really had me wanting to keep my sessions short and conserve power so I could test it properly! And once it ran out? Well, it didn’t see any more action for quite a while.

What it is:

Buzzy
What it is: Buzzy vibrators have a high frequency that stimulates the surface (like a high pitch).

Conclusion

I'm torn about the Zumio X. Sometimes, the stimulation it provided felt great, and other times I was completely overwhelmed and longed for something a bit more diffuse. However, I think it could be a fantastic match for someone who loves very direct stimulation, and perhaps finds lots of other vibrators lacking. If you're someone who owns a buzzy vibrator and longs for less numbness and more rumbles, the Zumio X could be an answer. However, I would recommend those who have the patience of a saint to withstand the humungous charging time – or maybe someone who has another sex toy to tide them over!

How to use Zumio X

Here's a quick step-by-step guide on how to get started with the Zumio X!

When the Zumio X arrived at my house, it had a little power, but needed charging pretty quickly. I recommend doing a full charge before started your fun.
Set the Mood

Why rush into things? If you want to get the best results from the Zumio X, try really getting in the mood first. Light a candle, dim the lights, read some erotica, or even watch some ethical porn!

The Zumio X, like almost everything else, is better with lube. To protect the silicone on the toy, I recommend using a good quality water-based lube.

The Zumio X comes with a travel lock so that it won't be able to turn on unexpectedly. That means no accidental buzzing sounds from your suitcase! To turn it on, hold the power button for 10 seconds.

FAQ

How is the Zumio X different from other Zumio models?
The Zumio X and E models offer precise, targeted stimulation with small, firm tips, perfect for those who are still looking for intensity. The S and I have larger tips that make broader contact with your body and shorter stems that create smaller circles, lowering the intensity of the stimulation and allowing you to have a longer build-up without feeling overwhelmed.
Is the Zumio X a vibrator?
No, the technical term for what the Zumio X does is oscillation. It has a small stem that rotates in small circles to deliver precise, direct stimulation.
How to charge the Zumio X?
To charge the Zumio X, plug the charging port into a wall socket with a micro USB cable and AC adaptor, then place the Zumio into the port. An orange light will start to pulse in the base of the port, telling you it's charging. 12 hours will get you an hour or so of use, but a full charge takes 16 hours. I recommend charging it overnight.
Where can you use the Zumio X?
The Zumio X is made for intense clitoral stimulation, but it can be used on other areas of the body too! Try it on the nipples or perineum for some unique sensations.
How intense is the Zumio X?
The Zumio X is one of the most intense clitoral stimulators I've tried. In a way, it's like a very direct, precise, rumbly bullet vibrator. If you're worried it will be too intense, take a look at the Zumio S and I models.
