The Raptor (small) from Exotic-Erotics is a biggun’. It looks like a scorpion tail on steroids and it’s happy to see you. I had to give it a try. I mean look at it; it’s a crazy looking dildo, and I get to pick its unique coloring. Some things you have to see in person to really appreciate it, and the Raptor is one of those things. It truly is a bizarre design.
The description on Exotic-Erotics’ website talks about how a dino might want to take you from behind. However, I’m sitting here watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer, wondering if this isn’t some kind of demon dick. Hell, now I’m thinking about which demon it could belong to.
The Raptor is made from body safe platinum silicone and they can make it in an array of shades and hues. I happen to be obsessed with brightly colored dildos, so this is a perfect fit.
I’m holding it in my hands right now (well, when I’m not typing) and thinking, how in the hell does this get considered small? When I first tried to use it, I wondered the same thing. I didn’t try to use it in a traditional sense of word. I wasn’t using it to see if it would make me cum; instead I was trying to see how much would actually fit inside me. I can tell you right now, not much.
Aside from the fact that this is an extremely wide toy, a lot of the length is wasted on the pronged tips. It made it pretty disappointing, not being able to utilize the bulge. At the same time, the bulge is oblong, so it’s not too wide from one angle, and huge from another. This makes it damn near impossible to use it vaginally (for me). That’s one thing that’s frustrating about reviewing, it sometimes feels like whining. “If only it was like this”, “if only it was like that”. I understand that sometimes the design isn’t intended for my uses. I’m sure this dildo would work well for someone who is extremely familiar with mondo anal play. However, the thought of trying to fit the Raptor up my ass, makes my asshole tighten.
The Raptor arrived in the customary pull-string bag (it’s a free option when you order). The box is plain with no indicators of what it contains, they even ship it under the name EE. The bag is comes it is a light cotton and the color is a toss up. I like it because each bag is made to fit each toy. I have different sized dildos from EE and each bag fits that particular dildo. This makes for very convenient storage.
While I am in love with the colors, I’m not in love with the Raptor. I think that EE needs two versions of their dildos. The ones that are intended primarily for anal and ones that are useful when used vaginally. Many of their designs are appealing but the length is too much. I mean that the bulge is inches away from being useful. Most times I order larger toys because I want the girth, but the length of the dildo leaves me with nothing. Granted the Raptor’s bulge is too wide for me (the oval shape really doesn’t work), but if it wasn’t quite as large and if it wasn’t so far away, I think it would have been nice (sans “pincers” of course). I think that’s where the biggest flaw in the Raptor lies. The dual tips takes away usable length. There’s only so much room to fit, and that’s a waste of space.
I ordered my Raptor in a medium firmness for the shaft and hard firmness for the base. I’ve ordered all of my dildos from EE with this option. I’ve found it to be consistent and works well with their varying designs. The silicone isn’t the smoothest I’ve encountered, but I have found that it does hold lube in place fairly well.
Overall, I don’t like the Raptor’s design. I don’t care for the pincer that take up precious space within me, and I don’t care for the length. Exotic Erotics seems to cater to the advanced anal players out there, but not so much to the vaginally inclined. I think that they have serious potential to cater to the size queens out there, if they thought smaller (in length and in the oval of the bulge) and where to systematically place varying width. Hopefully soon this will happen. Until then, I have one of the craziest dildos I have ever seen, in the brightest color scheme I’ve ever ordered. So for that, I am grateful.
Update: Exotic-Erotics just let me know that from now on, most of their new designs will have mini-versions. Also, there are some short and stock dildos in the works.
Thank you, Exotic-Erotics, for sending the Raptor in exchange for my fair and honest review.
