Our time with the Jopen Lust L12 has been a little rocky; for weeks every time I’d remind him to try it out because I had to review it, we’d turn it on and find it dead. I’d plugged it in to charge numerous times, each time turning it on and marveling at the powerful vibrations. But then he’d go to try it out a few days / a week later and it would be dead. Shevibe is very good to me and offered to send a replacement and handle the return but Jopen asked me to instead send it directly to them for analysis. I didn’t feel like paying for the shipping to Jopen and communications with Jopen took awhile, so I kept it. Now that my husband has pretty much declared it awesome, I’ll be taking advantage of the warranty and making sure he has a working version.
Yes, the Jopen Lust L12 is a home-run. It’s waterproof; rechargeable; just flexible enough; comfortable all around; very easy to clean; provides very powerful vibrations on both sides of the L shape; and tops it all off with the ability to have pulsating patterns. The only other review I’d read for the Lust L12 described the vibrations as average; I feel that they’re not quite as rumbly as the We-Vibe Tango, but almost and pretty close to the same intensity. If you’ve tried the Tantus vibrating plugs and felt underwhelmed by their vibration, the Lust L12 will impress you.
However, don’t let the horribly gendered colors fool you – the Jopen Lust L12 really is best as a prostate vibrator. Before I handed it over to my husband, I tried it out as a dual stimulation g-spot/clitoris vibe and it failed miserably for me. The inside arm wasn’t nearly thick enough and the outside arm was way, way too long. It overshot my clitoris by at least an inch. Lust L12 performs beautifully as a prostate massager and I think it should be kept in that category.
The first time my husband used it he was immediately and thoroughly impressed. He had the same look on his face that most people get when they’re strapped to a Magic Wand. And he hadn’t even turned the power level all the way up! He wasn’t accustomed to press-and-hold buttons so he turned it on and then went straight for the pulsating patterns. I really hate using the term “mind blowing” because it feels so cliched but I think it’s pretty apt here. After being disappointed by the design and lack of pulsating vibrations in the Jopen Ego E5 he was happy with the Lust L12’s improvements. The design is very comfortable, doesn’t need a hand holding it to keep it in the ass, and he said it could even be comfortable if you’re sitting up – just not perfect posture on a hard chair.
The Jopen Lust L12 does seem a bit noisy when it’s in your hand; but when my husband was using it I was sitting about 6 feet away and couldn’t hear it. I can’t say I love the control buttons but when you’re limited on space, 2 small dots are all you can fit. The button closest to the handle just turns it off and on, while the button closest to the arm will run through patterns if you click it and increase in vibration if you press and hold.
All in all…..he loves this thing. I see it getting a lot of use during foreplay and solo play. He’s already paired it with the Pulse which was met with great success. I’d suggest that you keep an eye on the battery and note how well it holds a charge when not in use, in case yours has the same problem as mine but overall for $70 it’s a pretty great show for your prostate. Sadly it’s now only available in garish hot pink. Don’t let that deter you, though!
