Review: Aneros Evi

Overall Rating

 Rating-stars2

 

Pros

Nice packaging and quality.
Exercises PC muscles.
No batteries needed.

Cons

Doesn’t fit all anatomies.

 
Evi is designed to give women a fun way to help develop and strengthen their pelvic floor muscles, which can aid in providing an overall better sexual experience. Strengthening your pelvic muscles gives you a stronger grip on your partner during intercourse and can give you greater pleasure and stronger orgasms. It’s also beneficial for women who suffer from incontinence, or weak bladder, and women who want to tighten and tone their vaginal muscles after giving birth.

Evi’s design is supposed to provide some fun clitoral and G-spot stimulation and aims to give you an orgasmic workout. Aneros claims that Evi will work for every woman and anatomy, but that might not be totally true.
 

Packaging

Aneros evi packaging

I was really impressed with Evi’s packaging. Evi comes in an outer box that is somewhat minimalistic and has a picture of Evi on the front. Inside this is another box that is a nice white box that has a lovely iridescent pattern on it. This box has two flaps that have magnetic closures. These flaps open and reveal a simple use pamphlet and then Evi nestled in a white plastic tray beneath. The box is a bit larger than needed to store your Evi, but I like to use it for storage

Material

Evi is a solid form covered in a red, velvety smooth silicone. Silicone is non-porous and will not harbor any harmful bacteria if properly cleaned. There is no texture except for a light embossed Aneros logo on the side of the clitoral arm. The toy is totally rigid and has no give, this is how Evi is able to apply pressure to the G-spot and clitoris. The silicone has a little bit of drag and it will want to collect lint, but it’s not the worst I’ve encountered. If you need a lubricant to help with insertion or just to make wear more comfortable, make sure to use water-based lubes. Silicone-based lubes can potentially interact with silicone toys and damage the finish.

Cleaning is super-easy, you can use toy cleaner, soap and water or toy wipes. Because Evi is silicone, you can  boil it or soak it in a 10% bleach solution to sanitize it.
 

Design

Aneros Evi Size

Aneros designed Evi to be able to fit a woman’s anatomy perfectly. There is a bulb, a thin neck, and then a clitoral arm. The bulb portion is close to 2.5 inches long and has a diameter of 1.5 inches at the widest part. The neck is about 1 inch long and the clitoral arm extends out about 2 inches past where the neck is attached.

Evi is meant to be inserted vaginally so that the bulb fits snugly up against the G-spot. The neck then leads out of the vagina and the attached clitoral arm is supposed to fit up against the outside of the vagina and stimulate the clitoris.

Use

There are no batteries or buttons. This toy is solely powered by the movements of your own body.
You can use this toy standing, sitting or lying down, you just need to find what works the best for you.
It’s easiest to insert while lying on your back. When you first insert it it’s nice to take a moment and get used to the sensation and Evi. You can take turns squeezing and releasing you PC muscles and feeling how your body responds to Evi. You can use this toy to when doing your usual Kegel exercises or start moving to have some fun.
You can rock your hips back and forth, front to back, in a hoola-hoop motion, etc. You can experiment with what produces the best stimulation for you. When you move your hips Evi will put pressure and rub on both your G-spot and clitoris.
 

Experience

I’m a huge lover of Kegel exercisers and have tried many different kegel balls. When I heard about Evi was released I was absolutely stoked to try it out. Evi sounded like the Holy Grail of Kegel toys.
Once Evi arrived I wanted to use it right away. After I popped it in I was a surprised I wasn’t getting more sensation right away but figured maybe I had to warm up a bit first. I could feel it a tiny bit when I squeezed my PC muscles, but not much.
I adjusted Evi’s position and tried to see if maybe that was the issue and realized that it was.
I think the Evi would have worked better for me if it was about 3/4 of an inch shorter on the entire length. My G-spot is not that high up, so by the time the bulb is in the right place for my G-spot the clitoral arm is still hanging down too far away from my body. I could push the bulb up higher so the clitoral arm could actually contact the outside of my body, but then the bulb would overshoot my G-spot.
I also think that the clitoral arm could be a bit longer because it only just reached my clitoris.
I also think a clitoral arm that curves upwards would help a lot with getting some sort of pressure and stimulation.

EviIdeal
I also ran into a bit of discomfort when sitting down  with Evi in. The neck between the bulb and the clitoral arm would get pressed hard against my pubic bone and pinch the flesh in between.
Sadly for me Evi just did not work for my anatomy the way it is intended to.
Evi can make an effective G-spot dildo, but the arm makes it difficult to use a clitoral vibe at the same time, but it’s not impossible. And at a full price of $70, Evi’s an expensive G-spot dildo.
 

Follow-Up after 2 months

Unfortunately I never got Evi to work for me the way it is supposed to. If Aneros decided to revamp the design and come out with a new version think I would be interested in giving it a try if the shape looked like it would fit my body better. For now, I’ve decided to stick to using my Kegel balls because they’re much more comfortable and stimulating for me than Evi was.
 

*Update*
Aneros has made a 2nd version of the Evi that features the same shape, but has a flexible neck.

 
You can find the Aneros Evi at Burlesque Toy Shop.

    how about closely dancing with the Evi at its place? is that possible given that it fits significantly better than with your especial genital anatomy?

    The comparison between the original Evi and your ideal size and shape is what made me want to comment on this post. I love that you didn’t just tell us what’s wrong with the toy or how it doesn’t work for you and instead provided constructive suggestions for how it could be changed to work with your body. I read your About My Body page and share a lot of the same preferences – right down to masturbation techniques – so I really have an idea about whether or not the Evi would work for me.
