This toy is built solid! Feels better made versus other comparable toys from competitors. Easy to clean too and feels great! Since you can hold and squeeze the body of the toy during use, you can change the intensity! For storage, I just let it dry and then place it back in its bag / box. Best tips to preserve the unit... use lube and don't submerge it in boiling water, but warm to hot water should be fine for cleaning. I think this thing will last a very long time and get a ton of use!
