Winner of the Red Dot Design Award 2010, Zini is half for him and half for her. His cradles and cups while hers slopes towards her. With 5 speeds and 10 pattern settings to flirt with, this luxury vibe ensures your erotic ecstasy is shared.
Zini is an innovation in sexual pleasure with an array of clever functions and indicators to make operation simple, allowing you to focus on the pleasure that is the Zini experience.
Deux is a multi-functional pair of vibrating massagers designed especially for male and female couples. The smooth egg shape comes apart in two halves, fitting together like a man and a woman. Made from PC ABS, the soft-touch coating is silky to touch and slips across the skin with delightful ease.
One half of Deux is for him; a soft cradle with a tapered tip that's ideal for cradling the scrotum, tickling the perineum and rolling over the head and down the shaft of the penis. He'll love the waves and pulses of vibration as they travel along his full length and awaken pleasure points that often go uncared for.
The other half is for her; it slopes to a firm yet smooth ridge that leans into her, stimulating both the inner and outer vagina and awakening every nerve ending with spectacular effect. Directing intense vibrations directly to the clitoris while massaging her inner and outer labia.
Both halves of Deux operate separately with their own set of controls, giving dual control over the intensity and build-up of your play. The speeds and functions are explained thoroughly in the accompanying manual, with diagrams and words to make learning to use Deux a cinch. There's even a travel lock to ensure that if Deux is charged on the go, it won't utter a word in transit!
Fully rechargeable, Deux will last you a lifetime with the correct care. Splash-proof for easy cleaning and a storage pouch to help you keep it safe from harm.
Zini Deux comes with a one year warranty to protect your purchase, making it the perfect gift for a friend or lover.

• The speedy and efficient delivery from Love Honey, it arrived the next day.
• The packaging the vibrator came in was good enough to use as a gift.
• The appearance of the vibrator is not cheap and tacky rather it looks like a quality and well-designed toy.
• The vibrator is really two vibrators a ‘his’ and a ‘hers’.
• They are rechargeable and there is no fiddling with replacement batteries, up to four hours use from a two-hour charge.
• They are powerful yet compact, a real bonus when travelling.
• Having a vibrator in each hand multiplies the possibilities.
• Placing the male vibrator under my balls whilst using the female clit vibrator on my penis is fantastic.
• Using both vibrators one under my cock and the other over gives a wonderful sensation.
• Placing one vibrator against my anus and another on my cock is also really good.
• The controls progress through different patterns and intensities so I am able to have a prolonged session and a really explosive orgasm.
• The female vibrator fits snugly against my wife’s vulva and also connects to her clitoris. The same time I am able to use the male vibrator to stimulate her tits. She is screaming with delight at this!

- A wonderful good quality vibrator.

My partner and I had been interested in the Zini brand since the Zini Roae/Love first appeared at Lovehoney a few months ago, wondering whether all that beautiful style would translate into knee-shaking function.
Delivery and Packaging
The Zini Deux arrived promptly and discreetly by special delivery less than a day after we got the dispatch email as I’ve come to expect with Lovehoney and we excitedly ripped open the box. Inside, nestled in brown paper shreds to protect it, was the box for the Zini Deux. A beautiful inky purple matt sleeve with Zini emblazoned in glowing white writing on the top. On the side of the sleeve are what look like lots of little shiny coffee beans but are in fact images of the Deux.
Pulling the box from within the sleeve there is an even more beautiful matt black and shimmery white box with a magnet keeping it closed. The packaging is pure elegance and makes the Zini an excellent gift. Many luxury items cut corners on the packaging using less than perfect card but the Zini’s box is gorgeous and inside, the components are held in strong, thick, black card boxes which slot perfectly into the outer box.
All of the packaging is card and therefore easily recyclable (not that you’d ever want to get rid of it) apart from a little plastic cover in the box for the product itself so it sits there prettily in its black packaging.
Inside the box you get:
• The Zini Deux
• A charger
• A bag
• An information booklet
• A 1 year warranty
Lovehoney also chuck in a UK adapter for free when you purchase the Zini Deux.
The information booklet is clear and concise with sections on how to use the Deux, charging, cleaning, storage, some health and care warnings and troubleshooting. Pretty informative for a tiny booklet! It doesn’t say not to use silicone based lubes with the Deux but Zini’s website does say it’s platinum silicone coated so I wouldn’t risk it personally.
The bag is well made, with no little stringy loose stitching and a piece of ribbon around the neck. It’s small and discreet. It’s the little touches that are important in luxury items and often those little touches are overlooked but not with Zini.
The Zini Deux: Design and Build
Right, so on to the good stuff - the product itself. The Zini Deux is absolutely beautiful, with sleek, smooth curves and vivid colours. The purple Deux (described on the Zini website as violet and hot pink) is much nicer than you can see on the images with a rich purple outside and bright fushia inside. The two components sit together perfectly showing a flash of pink (ooh err) in a curved line down each side.
The two halves are held together securely by magnets. The ergonomic design makes the Zini Deux sit comfortably in the palm of the hand and easy to use. The Zini is very light adding to its easy use. Oh and it doesn’t smell – just a tiny hint of “new-ness” but nothing unpleasant.
When separated, you can see the delicious curves designed for use over the body and genitals – one for him and one for her. The male motor seems to be situated in the apex of the curve whilst the female motor is in the nub.
The Zini Deux is well made, with a beautiful soft touch finish that is just so strokable. The plastic the Zini is made from is quite hard and unforgiving but I think when combined with the smooth curves it makes it more pleasurable as it can be pressed firmly as desired. Although the hardness does make the Deux quite noisy and certainly not as quiet as it claims to be (49Db which is apparently quieter than an electric toothbrush) especially if the two are joined when you switch one on.
The buttons are easy to use with a + button, a – button and a o button. When unlocked the + and - buttons cycle through the 5 speeds or the 9 pulse patterns depending on which mode the toy is in and the o button switches between modes. Pressing and holding to o button switches the Zini into “random” mode as it switches randomly through patterns. The power of each pattern depends on what speed setting the Zini was on when you switched to “pattern mode”. To “turbo up” you press and hold the + button and to switch off you press and hold the – button. To lock the toy you press and hold + and – together and the same to unlock. Sounds complicated? It’s really easy once you get the hang of it and the buttons, patterns and use are the same between models – the Zini Love/Roae has the same system!
The Zini Deux also has a mode to cycle through its light colours. The buttons light up depending on what you’ve asked the Zini to do the four colours being red, green, white and orange and really do make this toy easy to use in the dark or if your visually impaired. The cycle function shows that all four colours are working.
The design of the Deux is beautiful; it won the prestigious Red Dot award for design which is a competition for so many different products, not just sex toys! The only problem is, anything that’s designed to “fit together” will be held back by this. In the Deux’ case, this is displayed by the disparity between the two components. The male part seems to have been designed first! Both my partner and I feel that the male part is better ergonomically designed and the female part lost some function in order to allow it to sit inside the male part.
Having said this, I feel whilst the male part is better designed as a “sex toy” the female part does win in terms of massage. It’s much easier to direct around and over the body and that lovely soft coat finish makes it very smooth with no skin catching but more on function later.
Whilst talking about design, it’s important to mention Deux’s major flaw, and it is quite major. The two halves cannot be charged together. It wouldn’t take much Zini, a splitter or contacts between the two, or even just give me a second charger! But really, a toy designed for use together that can’t be charged together is a huge oversight! The charger connection points are protected by a little pop out cover which is quite awkward to open but does mean the Deux is “splashproof” which isn’t the same as waterproof. Do no submerse your Zini! It’s easy to clean with its sleek curves and there aren’t really any nooks for lube to get stuck in.
The manual claims that the battery for the Zini Deux is Li-Po, I don’t know what this means, but apparently it’s better and means your Zini will live longer! Although it does conflict with the website information which says the Zini has a Li-Ion battery – I’ll trust the manual though as the Deux may have been further developed since the webpage was written.
The battery takes 2 hours to charge for 4 hours use but you can’t use it whilst it’s charging which is annoying if you realise it needs charging midway through a session!
The Zini Deux: Function
To talk about function, it’s best to split the Deux into its two aspects….
The male part seems to be more powerful than the female part, probably due to the location of the motor and is well designed to cup one ball at a time and run the point up the shaft of the penis. It’s also good for massage on curved areas such as the hips and collar bones but not so good for flatter areas such as the chest and back. The male part, as I mentioned earlier, seems better designed for genital use than the female part but not as good for massage due to its deep curve.
I’ll leave the rest of the male information to my better half’s review of the Zini Deux
The female part is less powerful and the nub isn’t quite pointed enough for perfect clitoral stimulation but nevertheless it is very pleasurable. The buzz is a high quality buzz with a deep and powerful vibration. It can be used for clitoral stimulation, vaginal entrance stimulation and perineal stimulation but it’d be nice if it cupped the vulva more during play. The pulse modes are excellent and with 10 to choose from (including random pulse mode – which is excellent, normally I hate random modes due to the unpredictability but this one really is fantastic) you certainly will have hours of fun with your Zini Deux. The Deux is a slower orgasm, it takes a little more work to orgasm with the Deux than with some of my more pointed toys, but that extra work pays off with a more intense orgasm. It’s more of a sensual, take your time and enjoy it toy. Rather than a toy to grab when you need to come quickly. Really this just makes it ideal for shared teasing and massage… ahh massage. The female part of the Deux is better for massage than the male part and its deep rumble certainly melted away my aches! It’s sleek, smooth coating makes it easy to run over the body and the nub makes it excellent for working into those sore spots!
The different pulse patterns are really excellent, especially the random one! All with funky names like “sawtooth” and “vector” they are powerful and well timed. Which makes a change from the many toys which have patterns great in concept but not in reality!
The two toys are an excellent product for couples new to sex toys! And having such a well designed, male toy is quite refreshing! Using them on each other can be an excellent way to explore each other’s sweetest spots and individually they can be used for masturbation as well as massage. The design, size, weight and sleek coating make the two easy to direct and control over the body and the 5 power settings and 10 pulse settings means there really is something for everyone – the random pulse mode really hit both of our buttons. If you have tried lots of solo toys and want something to share then this is for you or if you’re new to toys and want a gentle introduction – another win!
The Zini Deux is a well made, well designed and well thought out couples’ toy. It does the job it’s designed to do but it does have a few niggly drawbacks and one major fault. It’s a non threatening introduction to sex toys or an addition to any hetero couples’ toy box. It can be used as two individual, solo toys, or as two toys to share so it is pretty multi functional. Does this make it worth the price? I’ll let you decide if you’re willing to spend so much on 2 toys with one charger.
- The packaging, appearance, lights, pulse patterns.
- Only one charger, noisy, not quite pointed enough.
- Bottom line
- A well made, well designed and well thought out couples’ toy.

When Lelo met TENGA (no not a new Disney film)
Reviewed: 17 August 2010 by WandA, a Straight Engaged Male
From the dispatch email me and my partner had to wait a whole 20 hours for this wonderful little bundle of buzzing joy to arrive... in the meantime I was left to virtually stroll the information highways for information on this novel little device. I found Lovehoney's description spot on so will attempt to simply not regurgitate it. I also discovered more information from the official Zini site, some of which I will reproduce throughout this review (if Zini promise not to sue).
Greeted by the package before us we attacked it as any reasonable person would do when confronted with a hugely exciting sex toy in a well packaged box. After much ripping and kerfuffling we reached the outer sleeve (oooooo). A rather simple piece of suave blue packaging that protects the actual box and has lots of little coffee beans on it, OK, not coffee beans but rather Zini Deux silhouettes. A nice touch to keep the white shimmered and black matte box in good condition. To be honest it is the least you expect from such a luxury item and it allows the Zini to make a great gift to a partner. The box has a small magnet in it to keep it sealed, everything inside fits well and the box is made from a stiff card too.
After opening the box we were greeted with the contents, the two Zini massagers, a carry bag, one charger and the manual.
The fold up manual was straightforward and easy to follow; it contains specifications of the product, instructions and a warranty card. It also contains some general medical, safety and care advice, one point of which I was unsure about. The manual makes it very clear not to use oil or alcohol on the Zini to avoid damage, which is all very well and good however it makes no mention of avoiding silicone based lubes which appears to be rather crucial to not spoiling the product if it is platinum silicone as the website states. Although I'm aware enough to check these things I feel it might lead to some unhappy faces if indeed it is silicone coated and there is no warning on avoiding silicone lubes, perhaps I am wrong and platinum silicone doesn't suffer from this drawback or it isn't silicone coated, either way I would avoid using a silicone lube.
As for the included bag, well it does everything it's supposed to. I think it has a nice cross-hatch like square design on it and is very discreet. It is also an ideal fit.
After the bag and manual were out the way it was time to look at the toy (I couldn't look at that first due to ninja fingers [as from now her new nickname in the bedroom] getting there first!)...
It's gorgeous! It's purple and fuchsia and rounded and looks great and glows and... Enough of that now, but it is certainly is one sexy piece of kit! It has a light mode to gently cycle though the four different colours which I thought looked great going through red, orange, green and white. This light mode is apparently intended to let you know all the lights work, I just liked that it was pretty but I liked that it had a small practical function built in. The two massagers fit together sleekly so the aesthetics for me were a huge win and also apparently the 'red dot' award judges when it took part in the competition that regularly sees over 12,000 entries (given this, this is probably the closest you will come to a supermodel, even if the plastic contents are nearly identical). My only slight was a hardly visible manufacturing line on the Zini pieces, I only mention because I think it should do without for such a price. The Zini is kept together by magnets in the units which helps keep the cool egg shape.
While on the topic of quality, it is 98% fantastic. Apart from the manufacturing line I found no other 'niggles' with the product after extensive searching. I suppose I could mention the 'solid man breast' reference in the manual that gave me a chuckle (ha!) but nothing more with the actual product or charger. The toy is really well built, the ABS appears very tough and it has that lovely silky smooth voluptuous silicone skin which I could happily stroke for ages (if I didn't happen to use it when I had my hands close by a lovely silky smooth voluptuous pussy instead). There were also no smells that I could smell from the product upon intense sniffing! Apparently Zini is the market leader in its home nation of South Korea, it is easy to understand why with the Zini Deux and it reminds me of the excellence of that other Asian sex toy amazer in Tenga. Does this justify the hefty price tag? Hmmm, I'll come back to that later.
Now for the science part
Before describing the toy during use (don't worry, it won't be badly written erotica... just badly written) I'd like to mention a few other things, mainly some tech specs to get you geeks hot under the collar!
Each unit weighs only 250g so is a breeze to hold and less than 5 inches in length (forgive me for the car crash that is metric AND Imperial units) and ergonomically designed to sit very comfortably in the palm. The size was great for using one handed and is easy to hold given the shape and silicone coating. It can also buzz all the way up to 160hz! Which sounds good however I have no idea what a 'standard' vibe buzzes at and found research a bit difficult to come by, funny that? It does give a good strong pulse though however both me and my partner felt the male part was stronger than the female part. It claims to be quieter than 49Db which is apparently quieter than an electric toothbrush or fridge. Balls. It is certainly one of the louder vibes we own so I would not suggest for those with thin walls.
My next point concerns a discrepancy I found, the official Zini site lists the Deux as having Li-ion batteries and the manual as Li-Po. From what I can gather Li-Po are better suited to a long term device like the Zini as they have more recharge cycles. I do think it is probably best to go with what the Manuel says and accept it is Li-Po as it may have been more recently updated. The battery is stated as 420mAh which is comparable to some Sony Cybershot cameras and the 4th gen iPod nano and I am unsure about replacing it (not that it should need it really). I shall mention more on the battery at the end on the Zini's one big failing...
This is where I FINALLY discuss all the funky functions and the yummy uses!
The Zini Deux has 10 different functions all controlled via 3 simple buttons. A +,o and - button. Constant, EMS surge, Triangle, EMS burst, balance, Sawtooth, Vector, Quadrila, Rectangle, Random. All of these functions can be adjusted to 5 speeds and it has a travel lock. Ooooo did I love the random pulse on the 3rd speed!
The buttons are great for the visually impaired due to the glow and easy to operate. The Deux is also splashproof which does NOT mean waterproof as stated on their website and it is super easy to clean without too many nooks to catch nasties.
Given the nature of the shape and how bits need to match up it can require some practice to find the right spots and it may be that one unit is better suited than the other at its function. The female part is pretty simple, the nub sits on the clit and the concave shape hugs the labia and stimulates them. The nub point is rather useful if you feel like flipping it round and stimulating the vaginal entrance or anus. This however is not my speciality, for I have a penis.
I can assist you by telling you just how bloody great this felt all over me! The shape is quite an odd shape but really versatile. It sits easily on the perineum (like a bike seat!) with the point pressing hard on the inner shaft sending vibes all the way up the cock. The male part can also be used on the anus or vagina to provide a great cupping of female or male parts. What turned out to be my personal favourite was lying on my back and pressing the cupping bit over one testicle while pressing the point over my shaft, it has to be done rather lopsidedly and both balls cannot be stimulated to the same extent but by jolly it was excellent! Having one of my testicles encased in the random pulsations of the Deux while my shaft vibrated up to her lips is very much top of my list to do with the Zini.
I also found it felt great masturbating; the Zini can cradle the tip of my cock from 3 sides and vibrate down my shaft to my balls. Getting more erect from the stimulation only serves to make it better. I know there are not many male toys actively aim to use exclusively vibrations to get you off but I found it refreshing and effective to have a male toy designed to stimulate me with vibrations even if I do generally prefer the stroking motion. It is novel but never the less very enjoyable.
As a couples toy I think it's a great idea, apparently based on yin/yang and harmony and all that jazz. Ignoring the jazz I think it might have a slight problem in getting parts to fit together that are idea for both gender parts, I fear the lady part might not be as effective as the male part, in part due to the difficulty in trying to find balance and compromise. It does also have the added bonus as being a great tool to demystify potentially scary vibes for partners, both male and female. The sex toy doesn't become a replacement, it becomes what it usually is and that is an aid in the bedroom that both partners can enjoy. Unless of course you're not a hetero couple then your f**ked and I really wouldn't recommend. It does also make a great massager when not used on the genitals (even if it was my favourite place).
Another point to consider before my final section about the ABS plastic it is made from. It is a very hard plastic and this is what I believe makes the toy so noisy. Putting the together switched on is quite deafening. Don't do it (you will now I've said that won't you?).
On to my final point. Why did you have to do it Zini? Why did you spoil what we had, it was going so well...
Why Zini do you insist on providing one charger to a product with two units likely used together with two charging sockets? I know you had the cheesy slogan '1+1=1' but we both know that's not literally true is it? It really wouldn't have been too difficult to create some form of splitter/dock/stand or contacts like an electric razor between them for simultaneous charging. You then make it worse by ensuring you cannot use the Zini while it charges! You have upset me Zini... At least a 2 hr charge gets you 4 hrs of use apparently and the unit connects well to the charger...
Shout out to Lovehoney for providing a free adaptor for use in Blighty too!
Wow... Still with me? You have done well, Congratulations. Buy yourself a Zini!
- Quality. Design. Presentation. Power. Functions. Concept. Long battery life. Bag. Glowing lights. Smoothness. RaNDomNeSs function!
- Poorly thought out charging. Noise.
- Bottom line
- Great. Think somewhere between Lelo and Tenga. *Thumbs up*
