Sex Toy Reviews for Experimental Fuckers #12

Pure Aluminium Medium Pink Vibrator

This review contains affiliate links.

In my Icicles No. 14 review, I talked about glass as a safe, versatile, beautiful sex toy material. Pipedream‘s Pure Aluminium line offers metal vibrators in a variety of colors, sizes, and shapes. Pipedream kindly sent me their pink Pure Aluminium vibrator in the medium size in exchange for my honest review. Unfortunately, the first one I received didn’t work, but Sabrina sent me a replacement.

     First, I want to talk about how the colors of these vibrators seem to determine their textures. Pure Aluminium vibrators are available in six colors: pink, blue, purple, black, silver, and gold. Regardless of size, the silver vibes in this line provide the least texture with their dead-straight bodies that have no curves, bulbs, ridges, or bumps. For a bit of texture that’s not overwhelming, the purple and gold vibrators take texture one step further. The purple vibes offer long, gradual curves, and the medium purple has a spherical bulb at the tip. The gold vibes have straight ridges around the shafts of their bodies and more pointed tips. For increased texture, choose a pink or black vibrator. The pink and black vibes have similar shapes, and both offer rounded ridges and bulbs of various sizes. For example, the small black has a larger bulb that makes it look much like a butt plug¹, and the medium pink – the vibrator I have – has a more realistic head. I would have a difficult time choosing between the pink and black vibrators because they’re so similar. I’d have to think hard about whether I’d prefer the larger ridges in the middle of the large black’s shaft or the fatter bulbs of the large pink. The blue vibrators provide the most texture by far. All three sizes have close, rounded ribs along the lengths of the vibrators’ bodies.

     Similarly, the vibrators’ sizes determine their exact shapes. Basically, I can tell that there’s a relationship between the pink vibrator in all three sizes – small, medium, and large. They’re related and offer the same general textural features. The differences are in the lengths and girths of the bulbs as well as where they’re located along the vibrators’ shafts. Overall, Pipedream’s Pure Aluminium line offers a lot of variety when it comes to color, size, and texture.

     People who are familiar with Pipedream’s packaging will recognize the Pure Aluminium medium pink vibrator as a Pipedream sex toy. As with Icicles No. 14, this toy arrives in a box with a magnetic flap on the front that has a satiny ribbon for a handle and opens to reveal the toy through a clear window. Thick foam – black instead of white – encases the toy and keeps it safe during transit. There are no models on the box, but the package shows pictures of the toy from various angles, which makes the packaging less discreet than it could be because it’s obvious what’s in the box. The sides of this box are metallic pink and match the vibrator inside.

     I kept the box to store the toy between uses because it doesn’t come with a storage pouch. However, the Pure Aluminium medium pink vibrator doesn’t really need a storage pouch because the material doesn’t collect dust, lint, or other debris. It’s also strong and unlikely to break, even if I drop it.

     Aluminium is the most abundant metal on Earth. It’s body safe because it’s nonporous and resistant to corrosion, which means that it’s easy to clean with a nonabrasive soap and water and won’t rust. It’s a low-density material, so this sex toy is lighter than a stainless steel toy but still has all of the benefits of metal as a sex toy material. For example, metal sex toys are excellent for temperature play because they get very cold and very hot and hold body temperature well. Aluminium is latex- and phthalate-free. Pure Aluminium vibrators are compatible with any type of lubricant, and a small amount of lube goes a long way because these toys are mirror smooth and don’t absorb lube.

     The Pure Aluminium medium pink vibrator is very pretty indeed. I love the vibrant, metallic colors of the Pure Aluminium line. This vibe uses two AAA batteries².

     It has three speeds and no patterns. There’s only one button, so it’s easy to use, but the only way to turn off the vibrator is by using the one button to cycle through the speeds.

     The low and medium speed settings are on the rumblier side. The high setting feels buzzier than the other two but isn’t so buzzy that it makes my hand itch or numbs my fingers, even with my Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The medium pink vibrator measures between 6-6.5″ in length and 4″ around at the widest part of the bulbs.

     The large bulbs of the medium pink vibrator provide gentle texture. Because the bulbs are the same size (excluding the realistic head) and evenly spaced, this vibrator makes me think of anal beads³. I tend to enjoy constant vibration externally and patterns internally, so I use this vibrator externally more. My favorite way to use this vibrator is to hold it by the end with the button with the realistic head pointing toward my vaginal opening and slide the length of the vibe up and down between my labia and over my clitoris. With the vibration turned on, the bulges and dips of the shape sort of feel like a pattern. I love the wet sound that lube and air make in the specific friction of this vibrator’s shape. I’ve had some satisfying clitoral orgasms while using this vibrator. The vibration is pretty strong internally. The aluminium transfers vibration well. The only minor negative aspect of using the vibe internally is loss of texture sensation with stronger vibration. In other words, the texture becomes less noticeable as the vibration gets stronger. I remedied the loss of texture sensation by squeezing the vibrator while it was inside me. The medium speed setting is my favorite because it’s the stronger of the two rumblier speeds, and even the high speed setting is super quiet. I couldn’t hear the vibrator over the TV at normal volume. This vibrator is nearly silent. There’s a clear ring that makes it waterproof.

     Soak it in a bowl of cool water (instead of putting it in the freezer) or warm water for temperature play. I recommend using the refrigerator instead of the freezer for safety reasons. Don’t insert a frozen sex toy. To warm Pure Aluminium vibrators, wrap the toy in a hot towel or just hold it for a few minutes. The metal is slippery when lubricated but not as slippery as glass, so the vibrator doesn’t become so slippery that it’s difficult to hold. I had Liquid Silk on the vibrator, my fingers, my vulva, and in my pubic hair and still didn’t lose my grip on the vibrator because there’s a ridge where the cap screws on. It’s also easy to clean using toy cleaner or a wet wipe or a 10% bleach solution. Because Pure Aluminium vibrators have motors, don’t put these toys in the dishwasher or boil them to clean them.

     Overall, the medium vibrators from Pipedream‘s Pure Aluminium line are great metal sex toys for beginners. They have three speeds with two settings that are rumblier and one setting that’s buzzier, so someone who’s new to vibrators in general has the opportunity to feel the difference in one toy. They’re body safe and easy to clean because they’re waterproof. The Pure Aluminium line provides a range of texture options, so someone who has never explored texture has the opportunity to find out whether or not they like texture and how much. I’d love to try a purple, black, or gold Pure Aluminium vibrator because I like texture. The silver vibrators offer no texture at all while the texture of the blue vibrators is too intense for me. Plus, buying a toy from the Pure Aluminium line costs around $50 (or less), which I think is definitely reasonable for a vibrating metal sex toy that’s waterproof. (Hint: Buy from Bondara in the UK or PinkCherry or SheVibe in the U.S. instead of Amazon.)

Pros:

  • The Pure Aluminium line provides a range of colors, sizes, shapes, and textures that allow even beginners to choose a metal vibrator that’s right for them.
  • Aluminium is an abundant metal that’s perfect for making sex toys. Aluminium sex toys are body safe, nonporous, latex- and phthalate-free, and resistant to corrosion. Plus, aluminium is low-density, so aluminium toys are lighter than stainless steel toys.
  • Metal toys are great for temperature play.
  • This vibrator is compatible with any type of lubricant.
  • This vibrator has two rumblier vibration settings. The vibration is strong internally.
  • The medium pink vibrator has a realistic head.
  • The texture of the medium pink vibrator is noticeable and makes me think of anal beads but isn’t overwhelming.
  • It’s easy to use because there’s only one button.
  • Even on its high speed setting, this vibrator is nearly silent.
  • It’s easy to clean because it’s waterproof.

Cons:

  • Like Icicles toys, Pure Aluminium vibrators don’t come with storage pouches.
  • Medium Pure Aluminium vibes aren’t rechargeable and run on AAA batteries, but I’m glad they’re not watch batteries.
  • Clean Pure Aluminium vibrators using a nonabrasive soap.
  • Pure Aluminium vibrators offer no patterns.
  • The high speed setting is both the strongest and the buzziest.
  • I have to cycle through the speeds to turn off the vibrator.
  • Pure Aluminium vibrators aren’t safe for anal use.
  • Stronger vibration means loss of texture sensation internally.

Rating:  8.5/10

¹I would not recommend any of the Pure Aluminium vibrators for anal insertion. While a few have shapes that are similar to butt plugs, none of them have bases to prevent them from slipping all the way inside the body and getting lost.

²The small Pure Aluminium vibrators run on watch batteries, and the large Pure Aluminium vibrators run on AA batteries. I cannot recommend buying anything smaller than a medium Pure Aluminium vibrator.

³Again, do not use Pure Aluminium vibrators anally.

    It looks great although not a big fan of this colour it does look good in it.Its one button operation is good although I think their will be a time when you might switch off get annoyed by having to cycle though the settings. Plus you cannot restart at the setting you let on unless it s the first setting you were using. lol

    Now i am not sure about its surface not gathering dust or particles as all things attract dust but being metal it wiped ready for use. unlike alternatives that have less smooth surfaces. It is good that it is quite enough you can enjoy your favorite tv while using it. hehe😉

    pleased you enjoy this cool looking toy and i did not have to many faults.😉 xxxxxxxxxxx

    • I’m not a huge fan of pink either. However, I do love the texture of the medium pink Pure Aluminium vibrator, and I can’t get this texture in any other color. Unfortunately, this vibrator doesn’t remember the last setting you used, so it turns on the same way every time – on the low speed setting. Because the surface of this toy is so smooth, it’s not a magnet for every cat hair on the comforter. Rather than dust and debris, you’re more likely to gather fingerprints. Taking the pictures of the measurements was surprisingly difficult because my tape measure kept slipping. That’s how smooth the toy’s surface is. I was pleased by how quiet it is.

      • It is a shame you cannot get the texture in the other colours but for a pink toy it does not look bad.😉 Tuei can see finger print being an issue but that is the cure of smooth surface like metal toy and smartphones. However being so smooth it makes for easy cleaning. It is good that noisy toys of old are gone as you can get the power vibration with less noise. Mobile phones vibrate more louder these days. lol🙂 xxxxx
