Jopen Pave Vivian G-Spot Vibrator Review

When I use the Jopen Pavé Vivian, I’m glad I finally decided to start reviewing G-spot vibes. I couldn’t have picked a better time to expand from reviewing silicone dildos, because the strong—but not-too-expensive—vibe options are getting better and better.

Vivian, part of Jopen’s striking new Pavé collection, is one of these toys that I’m glad is on the market. It has a good (if not excellent) motor, it’s pleasantly quiet, and it looks classy as hell. (I mean, it has to be fancy, right, with a name like PAH-vay?1)Jopen Pave Vivian G-spot vibrator

Here’s why I think Vivian is a good choice, if not my absolute favorite.

The Style

The Jopen Pavé vibes are a clear imitation of BMS Factory’s Pillow Talk series. Pavé vibes all come in one color that’s very similar to the turquoise teal of BMS Pillow Talk (though all the vibes in the latter series also come in pink). Both include gemstone embellishments (glass faux diamonds for Pavé, vs. Swarovski crystal for Pillow Talk). And both are coated in smooth, almost caress-able silicone.

I compare-contrast toys A LOT in my reviews because I believe people deserve choices—and accurate info about those choices—before they spend their money. That’s why I’ll mention the Pavé Vivian G-Spot Vibe’s obvious counterpart,2 the Pillow Talk Sassy, in this review—often.

One way I think Vivian beats out Sassy is the look of the control button. I like the “gemstone” control button idea; it’s a cute touch. Vivian’s setting looks especially nice, with multiple rings of tiny glass gemstones. The center gem’s large size also makes it super-easy to press—but not so easy that I’ve ever powered it off by accident. (Like I certainly have with the Pillow Talk vibes.) But that’s not all there is to the Pavé vibe controls: besides the glittery on-off and function change button, there are up and down control arrows.

Power & Functions

Each of the Pave Vivian’s 7 vibration functions can have its strength turned up and down 5 different levels, through the up and down arrows on the side of the toy. That’s a feature I raved about in a G-spot vibe I love, the Dorr Silker—though none of Vivian’s 6 patterned functions have done a ton for me. I stick to the first function, steady vibration, and its 5 possible intensity levels.

In the end, vibration functions are totally irrelevant if the vibe’s motor sucks. Happily, Vivian’s power is pretty strong and quite rumbly—especially on the lowest 3 speeds.

And here’s where the Pillow Talk Sassy just begs to be mentioned again. Both it and Vivan are surprisingly rumbly, especially for the price ($54 for Sassy, vs. $65 for Vivian). This is really great because G-spot vibes with noteworthy motors have typically sold for $80 and up: see the Sola Cue, the Dorr Silker, the (app-controlled) We-Vibe Rave, and the now-discontinued L’Amourose Prism V.

But back to my main point: I think Sassy edges out Vivian in both sheer power and rumbliness (besides being $9 cheaper). I’m tempted to stop writing about Vivian altogether at this point, because that will be the bottom line for many (most?) people.

But there’s one other quality that impacts my experience as a user of both vibes: their shapes.

Shape

Rather than having a rounded head like the classic egg-on-a-stick G-spot vibe, Vivian has a broad oval surface to stimulate the G-spot. It’s about 1.25″ across and 1.5″ long before the flat surface segues into the main body of the toy.Jopen Pave Vivian G-spot vibrator head

I was really excited about Vivian because of that shape: it reminded me of a Lovehoney weighted dildo that I was testing (so thoroughly!) when I asked to review Vivian.

And I do like Vivian’s head, the flatness of it, but the angle isn’t exactly right for me. It applies good, direct G-spot pressure, but it doesn’t wrap around as much as the Lovehoney dil. That’s a problem because Vivian’s shaft tends to bump into my mons when I try thrusting it. I had hoped that the “flexible shaft” would resolve this minor complaint for me, but it turns out the shaft is kinda flexible…but not really. You have to exert force to make it bend, and that’s uncomfortable to do while holding the vibe in place for long at all.

So I like the shape, but it’s not perfect for me. If you’re looking for pure G-spot pressure instead of “G-spot on down to vaginal entrance” pressure, then you’ll probably have a very different experience. My personal favorite internal vibe is still the Dorr Silker because the gentle S-shape is much better at stimulating all the way down the front wall of my vagina, instead of just the G-spot.

Overall

The Jopen Pavé Vivian is a solid G-spot vibe. The motor is surprising rumbly and offers a good bit of power. And I’m really loving the sparkly faux gemstone power button, along with the silky matte silicone finish.

Vivian’s flat head works best when really pressed into the G-spot and held steady—the intense curve ensures that. Since I’m very likely to wiggle and thrust my internal vibes, Vivian’s curve didn’t quite mesh with my personal style.

Overall, I’m more likely to recommend the Pillow Talk Sassy’s more natural curve, more bulbous head, and slightly more powerful motor. I like Vivian; I just think it’s not quite as good as Sassy, the vibe it was created to compete against.

  1. For all my fellow word nerds: After laughing at the fact that the name looks like “pave,” as in “pavement” (which doesn’t sound too elegant), I looked up the French word pavé. And it does indeed mean “cobbled” or “paved,” like a street. But, wait, one of the derivative meanings in English is a setting of stones, as in jewelry, which makes sense given the faux gemstones in these vibes.
  2. Some might say “obvious inspiration.”

      Have you contacted the retailer and/or manufacturer? The truth is that vibes are sometimes defective, and the Pave series has a 1-year warranty.

      The bottom glass-crystal button powers the toy on/off. If yours has stopped working, and you bought it less than a year ago, then it falls under Jopen’s 1-year warranty and you should contact the manufacturer for a replacement.
