Toy Review: The Svakom Siime Eye Camera Vibrator

Words cannot describe how excited I was when Mimi De Luxe provided me with the Svakom Siime Eye for review. I’ve wanted the original camera vibe since before it went viral (hipster much?) so, of course, I was elated to be able to review the updated, wireless version.

I had such grand plans for the Svakom Siime Eye. I was going to regale you with the tales of my experiences, backed up with a fascinating video of my vaginal canal during orgasm. Heck I even toyed with the idea of showing what my orgasm looked like when using different types of clitoral toys. Sadly, it wasn’t meant to be.

While the Siime Eye Camera Vibrator will undoubtedly work for some people it turns out that it did not work for me. I was totally unprepared for how this vibrator made me feel and the experience, while not unpleasant, was not entirely pleasurable either.

The Svakom Siime Eye Camera Vibrator

The Svakom Siime Eye Camera Vibrator is an incredible vibrator with a camera built in so that you can see everything that goes on during use.

When I first put the Svakom Siime Eye to the test Mr. Peaches looked at my laptop screen and went “that’s a bit gimmicky, isn’t it?”. A bit of a harsh comment, but I can’t really fault him. The original Svakom Siime (or Gaga) vibrator, did go viral, after all, earning the title of ‘sex selfie stick’ along the way. Selfie may be a bit of an unfair term, though, as the Siime Eye Vibrator can actually record videos during use, as well as provide snap shots.

So, yes, the Svakom Siime Eye is a bit gimmicky, but I don’t see why that’s a problem. Of course something this bizarre and sincerely useful is going to draw in hype, and I do think it’s justified in the case of the Svakom Siime Eye. I mean not only is it immensely cool to be able to see your vagina in action, but the Siime Eye also has tremendous implications when it comes to self-health checks and the medical fetish scene. These may be niche markets but if you can combine the reassurance of being able to self-observe your vagina’s status with an effective sex toy/fetish fodder then why not? Mr. Peaches and I also found out that the Siime Eye is a great way to check your dental health too (though you don’t need the vibrating feature for that).

All that being said the Svakom Siime Eye will set you back £139.99 for the above privileges, making it a definite luxury purchase. You only get this vibrator if you really want to explore its features and, even then, it’s something to save for.

Still, the Svakom Siime Eye does seem aware of its high price and is presented in quite a luxurious way to help justify the price. The box the Siime Eye comes in is sturdy and could be used for long term-storage. The Siime Eye is USB rechargeable, though, and is 100% waterproof as long as its detachable cap is place into the charging port. You get a replacement for this cap included, in case it goes walkabouts. The Siime Eye has a big button on its front which allows you to instantly check the amount of charge remaining in the Siime Eye.

The Siime Eye Vibrator is made out of body-safe silicone and ABS plastic, with a HD camera lens at the tip of the toy. All of these materials are phthalate-free, body-safe and non-porous. The surface of the silicone is silky smooth and undeniably alluring. Because it has a camera in it, the shaft of the Siime Eye Vibrator is very rigid, with no give, but with a 3.2-inch circumference the shaft isn’t going to be very filling for most. Instead it should be comfortably accessible for most people.

The controls are easy to use and the added girth at the end acts and an effective handle.

The Siime Eye has controls to sift through the vibration patterns and intensities, as well as an individual control for the camera and power checking. While that may sound complex all of these controls are quite easy to operate in practice, though I wish they weren’t so easy to accidentally press at times.

What wasn’t easy, for me, was installing and using the Siime Eye software to allow the camera to work. An instruction book is included to help with this process, but all of the information is conveyed through images with minimal written feedback. I also found that some of the information I needed was included in other sections but not mine, making things even more confusing. I essentially had to sift through the entire manual and patch the method of making the software work together. Not ideal for a £100+ luxury vibe.

My Norton antivirus software also kept on deleting the Siime Eye software as a potential threat. In the end I had to report it to Norton who confirmed it was a false positive and made the software available. So now it’s confirmed for 100% safe and is accessible for all Norton software. Huzzah! But, again, not ideal for a very expensive vibrator.

Once everything was up and running, though, the Siime Eye was pretty straight forward to use. The camera works well up close and can convey a great amount of detail but, ironically, it doesn’t actually fare well in confined spaces; vagina included. Because of this if you want to see your vagina in reasonable detail you actually have to buy a clear speculum to use with the Siime Eye, another expense to keep in mind.

In theory I really didn’t mind this and I eagerly purchased my speculum; eager to view my vagina climaxing in all its glory. To my dismay the camera caused the exact opposite effect in practice. Looking at my vagina on the screen I felt suddenly disconnected from it. Everything felt much more clinical, detached and definitely not sexy. For me the Siime Eye took something that I’d usually celebrate and made it to something I was totally disconnected from, and I found it surprisingly alien.

The speculum also felt a bit awkward and blocked me from using my wand. It also made my muscle contractions pinch a bit (not that I could get anywhere near a climax). As I sat there with my legs spread, a speculum in my vagina and my vaginal walls on my screen I looked to Mr. Peaches. Where usually we would be kissing in a passionate embrace he was, instead, sat on the side lines while I was limited to a single position. It was the exact opposite to what I hoped it would be.

For a toy that gives me a closer look at my vagina, I've never felt so distanced from it.

In the end we decided that the Siime Eye was not for us when it came to arousal, although we both agreed that the images it produced were interesting. Still, they weren’t as focused or HD as we had hoped. They were actually somewhat blurry and lubricant or internal fluids easily hindered the camera’s lens. Again, not ideal considering where the camera is going. We both decided that the camera was an acceptable quality to do a preliminary health check or facilitate a medical fetish but we feel there’s room for improvement.

Of course, when it comes to my personal hang ups with the Siime Eye the toy isn’t necessarily to blame. However, if, like me, you crave intimacy and love getting lost in the moment during sexual activities just be aware that the Siime Eye forces you to take a step back from that in many ways. Some people will adore what the Siime Eye’s camera has to offer (I thought I would), but it’s not for me.

The vibrations from the Siime Eye were surprisingly the main event for me. The Siime Eye has quite buzzy vibrations which I would class as reasonably powerful. They’re not going to rock your vagina with quivers but they are strong enough for me. Something about the vibrations also just really works for me; they’re at just the right level, just the right frequency to very effectively prompt an orgasm out of me. I can actually orgasm with the Siime Eye faster than some rumbly internal vibrators, which is impressive.

Some people may lament the fact that the Siime Eye doesn’t have a curved shaft but I found that because the Siime Eye is rigid, you can angle it to provide G-spot stimulation if you need it.

As a result, my orgasms with the Siime Eye were impressive, strong, and came on faster than I expected. Using this toy as a vibrator was certainly more fulfilling for me than using it as a vagcam.

Obviously this product is another one where personal preference reigns supreme but there are also a few downsides.

The biggest one for me is that you shouldn’t have to buy an add on item to make the Svakom Siime Eye work, yet it was essential for me. Without the clear speculum all I got on the camera feed were various tones of a pink blur and that was a bit of a let-down. If Svakom want to advance their toy in the future, then they need to think about how they can get around this issue. Perhaps a chunkier shaft with a smaller camera in the centre? Either way it will deter users who don’t like speculums or simply don’t want to pay out more to make this toy work (which is a valid concern).

The creases and crevices of the Svakom Siime Eye can also retain gunk so it’s important to clean them thoroughly.

Final Thoughts

Overall the Svakom Siime Eye Camera Vibrator was a bit of a mixed bag for me. I was really looking forward to using it but, in the end, it turned out that the experience was very jarring for me. I also have concerns about the price of this vibrator. Yes, it’s a fabulous piece of tech but it still has flaws, it requires add-ons, and the software is fiddly. These are all things I’d personally want addressed before I felt like £139.99 was a fair price to pay.

However, I do realize that some people will really like what the Siime Eye has to offer will really appeal to some people and the price will be small change compared to the satisfaction they get. I really do think that these people will come from the medical fetish—a sphere where the Siime Eye fits in perfectly.

For these people the Siime Eye’s wifi connectivity and wireless features does make it a better product than the original Siime and I think it would be worth putting the extra money in for the upgrades.

Ultimately I hope that you’ll know whether the Siime Eye is for you or not. Personally I missed the mark but I hope this review (and others) give you the confidence needed to make that decision on whether or not to buy the Siime Eye.
