At first glance, the Form 3 looks more like a serving spoon meant for serving soup than an erotic tool. It is an extremely strange-looking vibrator, but in a good way. Unlike the proverbial bullet vibrator used as a clitoral stimulator, the shape is wider and the design is more appropriate as a dildo that can be inserted sideways. But it’s definitely a clitoral stimulator in function.
My interaction with this particular Jimmyjane creation can only be described as a love-hate relationship. Read on to find out why it works for me, and what I did to get over my initial apprehensions about using it.
I have bonded with the Form 3 from the moment it arrived in my doorstep. To be more specific, after I’ve charged it overnight on the base charger in plain sight. It doesn’t bother me to charge this vibrator where someone else might see it. It looks just like another strange gadget that today’s advanced technology has spawned. The shape of the Form 3 is technically oblong but the width tapers off from a wide base to a narrower tip. It measures four inches in length and can be held comfortably by one hand. The silicone body (phthalate-free) is incredibly soft, and would not feel bad on your skin even without lubrication.
The bottom portion of the Form 3 is where the controls are. You can turn it on by pressing the plus button once, and then continue pressing to increase the vibration intensity. But the real secret of this design is in the top portion, which comprises an almost translucent center covered with membrane-like silicon. The whole top part of the Form 3 is flexible and bendable, which makes it easy for you to use your other hand to push through the silicone membrane and direct all the powerful vibrations to one spot.
If like me you didn’t watch the demo of how the Form 3 works, you’ll initially be confused about how to use the tool. Experiment further and you’ll find out why the Form 3 became popular among women and men alike.
I found the best way to use the Form 3 accidentally. Ideally, you can masturbate with the Form 3 with just one hand because of its unique design. Hold the base against the fleshy part of your pelvic region with the center of your palm. This way, you can use four fingers (except the thumb) to press against the flexible top part and touch the clitoris through the membrane. Poking your index finger or your middle finger through the silicone membrane while the whole thing is vibrating can feel like your actual finger is vibrating.
Another way to use it is to flick it over your erogenous zones like its tongue-like design suggests. You can also press the softer top portion on your nipples and play with them with your fingers through the membrane. I like the Form 3 better for couple’s play because your partner can do the pressing and the poking while you concentrate on increasing or decreasing the intensity of the vibrations.
There are some drawbacks, and you will not know what these are until you try the product on your own. Unlike a bullet vibrator, you have to keep one or two fingers pressed on the membrane to maximize the use of the Form 3. This can cause a cramp around the joints of your fingers if it takes longer for you to climax. Also, you can’t push the whole length of your finger through the membrane, in case you feel like doing so for touching other, deeper spots.
This limitation may be one of the reasons why some women don’t like this design. Not all women are built the same, anatomically. Some women have fleshier mounds. This means the clitoral region is harder to reach unless there’s someone else around that can spread the labia enough for the Form 3’s silicone membrane to be pressed directly on top of the clitoris.
Despite the drawbacks, the thin, membrane-like portion of flexible silicone is brilliant. The material is tight enough to conduct the vibrations from the base of Form 3, but still flexible enough to be manipulated without much trouble. To say that you can touch yourself with pinpoint accuracy is a stretch, but there are other ways to use this sex toy that work great.
The silicone is also very soft, especially when you apply lubricant. The sensation of the soft membrane on the clitoris is phenomenal, and not many vibrator brands can compare. In the end, it’s all about the intensity of the vibrations and how well you can play with it. The design may be odd, but it takes a smart (and horny) woman to find out Form 3’s true potential as a pleasure tool.

If you think sex after marriage is as oxymoronic as “educational TV,” consider the advice of Jan Brown, an Austin, Texas, marriage counselor who’s among the advocates of Hot Monogamy a strategy for keeping passion alive in long-term relationships.
First, advises Brown, get over the idea that your sex life isn’t normal if it doesn’t look like a magazine ad. “A lot of couples come to me thinking their problem is that the good sex isn’t automatically there, like it is on television.
“In real life, it rarely is `just there.’ Sex, like anything else in a relationship, is a process of building, communicating and negotiating with each other.”
Why then, if good sex requires time and work, do many people feel sexy only in their early courtship — or with a new partner? It’s a simple matter of chemistry, replies Brown.
“When you first meet someone, there’s an increase in the brain of a chemical known as phenylethylanine, or P.E.A.,” she explains. “The same chemical is associated with fear and excitement; it’s even used in diet pills, because P.E.A. is an appetite suppressant.”
As P.E.A levels wear off — often within the first two years of being together, the excitement of sex may wear off as well. But P.E.A. levels can be elevated by experimenting in the bedroom.
That is why, she says, couples who want to improve their sex lives have to be open to trying new things. It’s not going to happen if your sexual routine is just that — a routine.
