Because of its curve, firmness, and two differently-sized bulbs, it often gets characterized as a cheaper ($35) alternative to the Pure Wand. And while it is an okay dildo, there is nothing which can truly rival the Pure Wand. If you’re deadbent on getting a good G-spot toy, let me tell you right now that it is worth saving up the extra money for.
The main reason the Serenity doesn’t live up to its hype is that its curve is totally wimpy. All the promotional photos I’ve seen of the Serenity seem to be taken at a slight angle, making the toy’s curve look more extreme than it is. Next to many other G-spot toys, it may as well be a straight line.
That big bulb isn’t doing it any favors, either. It’s wider than the Pure Wand’s bigger bulb, at maybe 1.6" across, and it’s also wider than it is long, meaning that it feels really awkward and sometimes even painful during insertion and removal.
Plus, once it’s finally in me, I find that it doesn’t even stimulate my G-spot that well unless I tilt the handle way down toward my butt.
The smaller end, though, is weirdly kind of nice. I have difficulty explaining why, but it does a good job of finding and rubbing my G-spot. Not good enough to make the toy worthwhile overall, mind you, but at least I was able to get some enjoyment out of it.
If you’re looking for a G-spot toy that won’t seriously injure your bank account, there are way better ones out there. The Lelo Ella is $30, the Amethyst is $25, and the Acute is $32, for example. You don’t have to shell out for the Pure Wand, but you also don’t have to settle for the Serenity.
