Review: HUM Vibrator

I was super excited when I saw that Ruby at missrubyreivews.com was giving away a HUM vibrator. Happily for me I was the lucky winner and now I’m here to bring you a review of the most interesting vibrator I’ve come across to date.

Designed by a team of physicists in California the HUM is a smart vibrator, artificial intelligence inspired, in that it responds to what you do and how you move. There are two motors in the HUM and they work independently of one another to create sensations that are unique to you. It all just depends on how you move or use the toy. It responds to all kinds of various motions, including squeezing, rocking, and rotating just to name a few.

My first experience with the HUM was receiving a plain white box in the mail with no indication of what might be inside. I opened the box to find very simplistic packaging and bright blue vibrator wrapped in a black satin sack that was all wrapped in heavy duty bubble wrap. It was definitely secure in its packaging. I unpacked everything and immediately set the charging pad up so I could charge the vibrator. It charges via induction from the charging pad which makes the HUM waterproof if you’re so inclined to take it into the bath or shower.

As soon as it was fully charged, which took about an hour and a half, I immediately picked it up, turned it on (hold the HUM button down for two seconds), and started squeezing it in my hands and feeling the various vibrations and intensity levels. I was having so much fun just playing with it in my hands that I knew getting into my vagina, and soon, was a must! My partner likes to experience new toys with me so later that day we busted it out and while I didn’t find the vibrations to be overly rumbly, I also wouldn’t call them buzzy in the least.Clenching around the toy was great for G-spot stimulation I found and even just thrusting it in and out while my body twitched around it made for some amazing sensations. It was a very different feeling from anything I had ever felt from a vibrator and I loved it.  It took some time because I was still learning the shape and feeling of the toy, but the orgasm I had from it just about curled my toes. My partner also enjoyed the fact that with the changes in vibration from the toy he could feel my orgasms.

Since then I’ve played with it solo to much the same results, only this time I added some Sliquid Sassy into the mix for a nice smooth experience. It did make the base of the toy a little harder to hold on to but something like that is to be expected when you start getting lube everywhere. This time I was able to really get a feel for the toy and squeezing it hard with my kegel muscles produced a heavy, deep vibration that felt amazingly intense. If you have weak kegels this may be a more difficult toy for you to use, but with practice you’d likely get stronger and therefore get better results from the toy.

Additionally the HUM has a couple different ways it can be used. If you have the buttons facing up it will pick up on rhythmic pattern and repeat them whereas if you have the buttons facing downward it creates simpler patterns, although it still responds to your body. I had a lot of fun trying these out and just playing with the toy in every way I could imagine to see how it felt and what worked best for me. This toy also pairs amazingly well with oral sex due to its somewhat slim profile and maneuverability so if that’s your thing then go for it!

HUM held a charge quite nicely just hanging out in my toy box for probably a week or so between uses and was still going strong when I used it again. It also has a feature where if it is at full power, turning it on results in three pulses of a green light and when it is nearing the need for a recharge you get a single solid red light and pulse for a moment. As I mentioned charging is super easy with a charging pad that comes with a basic USB to mini USB cable like you might use to charge your phone. No more digging around for a proprietary cable for this toy, which I think is a great option.

The biggest drawback that I can see to the toy is price. The color I chose (Blue Glow that really does glow in the dark, but sadly my camera wouldn’t pick up the gorgeous phosphorescence) retails for $229.00 on meethum.com although they have other colors that are less expensive at $199.00. Is this vibrator worth that much money? For something so responsive that reacts to your body the way this toy does, I think I would’ve considered buying one for myself just for the sheer curiosity and novelty of the product. Now having tried it, I do think it is a toy well worth the money spent on it. The artificial intelligence angle is unique and there is no other toy like it on the market that I am aware of at current. If you want something unique and unusual to play with I would highly recommend the HUM.
