I laughed when I saw the Hippocampus medium in person. Alright, to say I laughed is a bit of an understatement. I cackled like a lunatic, uncontrollably, for the first few hours. This thing is HUGE. I’m happy to say that I love it. It’s not just a pretty dildo, it’s an amazing dildo. It’s ginormous, but for my vag, it’s perfect. I like a lot of girth, and with the Hippocampus I get it. Sure, it’s long, but with the way the texture is throughout the entire dildo, I don’t feel pressured to take the whole thing, in order to enjoy it. I felt that with the Wuffamute, because there was a knot that was far down the shaft. Not with the Hippocampus. The whole thing feels amazing.
Hippocampus medium is made by Exotic Erotics, a Kentucky based company. They make realistic and fantasy dildos. I am partial to the sculpted fantasy dildos myself. All of their toys are made from 100% silicone, and you can do some pretty great things with the color options. At least I’ve loved my choices, thus far. The Hippocampus comes in small, medium, and large. I got the medium because I really want the girth. I didn’t necessarily need the length, but it doesn’t hurt to have, especially when I’m maneuvering it by myself. There are different silicone densities available; hard, medium, medium shaft/hard base, soft, soft shaft/hard base, soft shaft/medium base. I personally got the medium shaft with the hard base. The medium is very squishy and pliable, while the hard is just slightly firmer. I would compare it to Bad Dragon’s Medium/Firm option (which I have on my Nox). The medium shaft makes it extremely comfortable in use, and the somewhat soft base makes the suction cup adhere to the wall better. The silicone isn’t smooth, it has a light texture to it. I’ve found that it helps my water based lube distribute more evenly as I spread it on, and helps keep it in place.
Here are the measurements for the Hippocampus:
Total length – 10″
Usable length – 9″
Diameter – 1.9″
Circumference – 6″
Diameter – 2.25″
Circumference – 7″
Diameter – 2.62″
Circumference – 8.25″
I am extremely happy with my Hippocampus. The colors came out better than I could have imagined. EE has a swirl option for the larger sizes of toys they offer. They can do virtually any color you desire, as long as you write it in the comments box during checkout. I personally just picked from the colors they already provided. I have a special love for bright colors, so I love that EE provides fluorescent colors as the norm.
When I finally stopped giggling (I’m extremely immature at times), I started up the boiling pot. After I sterilized my Hippocampus, I could barely wait for it to cool. I ran upstairs, grabbed some Sliquid Sassy and tried on the Hippocampus. (Would it be “tried-in”?) I was immediately full and loving every ridge of the texture. Since the silicone is plush, it allows me to enjoy the ridges, rather than wince. I’m not a huge fan of rigid texture, but I sure as hell love some softer texture. Since I first tried the Hippocampus, I’ve become addicted to its textured girth and it’s gorgeous coloring.
The one thing I don’t love is the suction cup. When I do get it to stick to shower wall, it does not let go. Even when I accidentally slide it over grout, it holds on (first time I’ve seen this). It’s getting it to stick that’s the hassle. I have to lean into it with my weight to hear it squeak all of the air out, and then it’s good to go. This doesn’t happen easily. The suction cup is slightly raised from the base. I talked to EE about it, and they said that they test every suction cup before shipping and that mine passed. They also said they’ll be looking into possibly changing it. We’ll see.
The Hippocampus medium is huge. As I said before, I laughed like a lunatic when I first pulled it out. I said, “No way!” more times than I can count. I asked thin air if it could believe how big it was (meaning I was talking to myself). I love this fucker. I really do. It’s a gorgeous pillar of textured silicone, and I’m happy as fuck to call it mine.
Thank you Exotic Erotics for me with the Hippocampus, in exchange for my fair and honest review!
