Totally unexpectedly I won a competition hosted by Xcite books. I really had already forgotten that I had tweeted about my Good Friday and used the hashtag #xciteme and was very surprised when I was tweeted that I had won the competition.
The Silver Swan by Swan Vibes.
I received the Silver Swan just in time for the Easter weekend. A week later I was all ready and set to review it.

Packaging & Contents
The Silver Swan comes in a beautiful white box that can be used to store your vibes and everything that came with it. The box has a magnetic closure and is very sturdy, which makes it very useful for long term storage. Inside the box is a black toy pouch with the Swan logo on it, the charger and different plug adapters to connect to the charger so you can charge the toy in the country you live in. Or the country you travel to, for that matter! This is quite a great idea from Swan Vibes! The toy, the charger and the different country adapters were all packed in separate, sealed plastic bags. The instructions pamphlet was also in the box, held in place by Velcro.
Shape ‘n Size
The Silver Swan felt soft, yet firm in my hand. I loved the velvety feel of the toy. And of course, the bright pink color is so lovable it makes you want to use it immediately.
On the back of the toy is the opening where you can insert the jack to charge the toy. The opening is protected so no water can run into it.
The Silver Swan is made of 100% seamless silicon and as said above, it feels like velvet. It has a very soft feel to it, yet the toy is firm. The toy is waterproof, phthalate free and travel-ready.
How does it work?
The Silver Swan has two separately controlled vibrations. Button 1 is for the main head and button 2 is for the clitoral extension. Both of the vibrations are powered by PowerBullet (TM).
The toy takes 2 hours to charge and once fully charged it can run up to 6 hours on the rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery.
Push a button once to start the vibrations, and when you want to increase the speed of the vibrations, you just push and hold the button. The vibrations are quite powerful. To turn off the vibrations you just push the button once, shortly.
There are no variable vibrations, but this toy definitely does not need that. The steady vibrations are more than enough, and the kind of vibrations most girls long for.
My experience with the toy
I washed the toy before I used it. Before I started to use it, I checked how the controls work. I held the toy against my opening and slowly pushed in. I did not use any lubrication, but if you are not wet enough, you can apply a water based lubricant. Once it was inside, I turned the vibrations on. It was not strong enough, so I pushed the button and held it down. The vibrations got stronger, but the toy did not get noisier. In fact, this is a toy you can play with while there are people in the room next to yours.
Very soon the vibrations were quite strong and very enjoyable. It hit my G-spot perfectly. Then I tried to have my clitoris stimulated at the same time, but unfortunately the clitoral part is just too short to reach my clitoris. I liked the vibrations against my inner labia though, but that was just not enough to climax. I cannot climax from only vaginal stimulation, but need to have my clitoris stimulated too. I pulled the vibe out and pressed the insertable part against my clitoris. I was caught by surprise when I had an overwhelming squirting orgasm.
I was not done yet. I wanted more. I easily pushed the vibe back inside, noticing how well it filled me and how good it felt. I ran the vibrations up again and finished the job by yet again holding the vibrations against my clitoris.
My opinion of the toy
I am very impressed with this toy, even though the clitoral part did not reach my clitoris. Together with the Icicles toy I have recently acquired, the Silver Swan will be one of my most used toys. I love G-spot stimulation, followed by clitoral stimulation. This makes for great orgasms and how better to achieve that than with such a lovely vibrating toy as the Silver Swan.
