Prisms SomaTo be honest, I didn’t look at the specs when I bought the Soma. Its beauty won out, just like a few other glass toys I own. I’d never seen anything like it, and was surprised it was so cheap ($19.25 on Amazon). I’ll tell you right now, that owning the Soma is like the saying “You were beautiful until you opened your mouth”. I loved looking at this piece, but as soon as I used it, I immediately regretted buying it.

When I pulled Soma out of its box, I rushed off to take a few pics for the Package of the Day. After that, I had to put it up for a few days. I’m one of those people who like an empty house when I’m playing with dildos. Vibes, I don’t care if there’s a party going on downstairs. Anyways, when I did pull the Soma out to play, I lathered it up with some Spunk silicone lube, and went over my labia with it. I was not impressed. At all.

The swirling glass is wide, and because of the girth of each piece, it creates a ravine between them. So when I’m rubbing it on my clit, it offers no resistance or texture. I knew this going in (I mean it’s made of smooth glass after all), but when I was laying there with it in my hands, I was pretty ticked off. Then when I’d twist it, to try for some texture, it just slip off my clit and trying to compensate for the distance between the two pieces was a pain. Well, not a pain, but definitely inconvenient. Even when rubbing it on my labia, I was left bored. Maybe if it was coiled tighter, it would offer something.

Soma textureWhen I started thrusting, I was caught of guard on how much the two V’s where the pieces meet the head, caught on my lips and entry to my vagina. It was distracting more than anything. I ignored and it kept on with my mission. I figured I could just keep it deep, and aim for my g-spot or x-spot. Nothing. It didn’t reach anything. I tried to tilt it with what little there was to grip (the base nearly non-existent), and I ended up just pissed off. I tried different positions; legs up, doggy, standing, I used my liberator wedge for a tilt. Still nothing.

The overall length of the Soma is 6″ with an insertable length of 5 1/2″, the circumference is 5″, the diameter is approximately 3/4″ for each spiral. The distance between the center of each spiral is 1″.  The base diameter is 1 1/4″. I know this sounds like a long list of measurements. That’s because it is.


Now about the head. It’s just painful. The end of the coils comes to what looks like an arrow. They aren’t subtle. They’re actually deeply scored into the glass. When I lubed up my hand, to stroke it, I knew it wasn’t just me having an over sensitive vagina. The tilt of the head isn’t angled enough from the shaft, to make it assertive for any kind of spotting. It’s barely a tickle.

It’s a beautiful piece. It really is. It’s one you think, “Oooh, that’s so pretty, and the swirls! It has to be amazing”. No. Yes, it is pretty. Yes, it has swirls. No, it is not amazing. In fact it is more of a trophy toy. It sits in the case, and there’s nothing more to do with it, outside of looking at it. It is tricky to clean because of where the two pieces meet on the shaft. It’s a tight squeeze that requires a toothbrush. That spot is where skin gets tugged, and makes the whole experience just irritating. The loose coil makes it boring when you try and use it externally. The base gives you virtually nothing to hold on to when you’re fishing for an orgasm. Absolutely a beautiful piece, and absolutely a waste of twenty bucks.

  1. Ugh! What a disappointment! I remember us looking at this together when we were chatting one time. So sorry to hear it was a waste!

    • I wish it had been a success story. Especially since we talked about it, but nope. It’s so pretty though and stands out in the collection pics I took yesterday. I mean it LOOKS like a crown gem, but, damn, looks are seriously deceiving.

  2. Sorry to hear about its bad performance — at least it’s a beautiful display piece.

  3. Oh I’ve been waiting for this review. I thought it was so pretty when you first posted the pic! I’m so glad I didn’t order it. Bored and pissed off = NOT the reaction a sex toy maker should be aiming for.

    P.S. I get pissed off at my toys too! Dead batteries, rechargeable losing its charge, not enough power, weird handle that makes my hand/arm tired, toy that almost but NOT QUITE hits my G-spot or clit….maddening! 🙂

  4. A beautiful piece of art, but a total failure. What a disappointment. The shape really looked intriguing though. Oh well =(

  5. Wow, this thing was quite a fail for you, huh? The lack of a proper base makes it undesirable for me, though, I do think its looks are nice enough.
