IMG_3072The 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.

The Measurements:

Raptor measurements

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.

IMG_3047Aside 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.

IMG_3045While 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.

Amsterdam wet modMondo Cock. That’s the Amsterdam for you. Think big and then double it. It’s a pillar of black silicone waiting for a hole that’s up to the challenge. I couldn’t pass up the chance to give this behemoth a try. I consider myself a bit of a size queen, so naturally I had to give it a go. It took some time, it took some patience, and it took a hell of a lot of warming up. The design of the Amsterdam is unrelenting. The head of the Amsterdam is not to be taken lightly. To the touch, the silicone is soft and mildly squishy. In use, the Amsterdam has little to no give to it.

I love the look of the Amsterdam. It’s a great giant pillar of Tantus silicone. It’s fun to grab, swing around, or just marvel at. Tantus makes sex toys out of 100% body safe, ultra premium silicone. When it comes to cleaning or sterilizing my sex toys, I’m partial to boiling. I have a huge pot in which I boil all of my toys, and even then the Amsterdam has to be boiled in positional shifts.

I always boil my toys before I use them; it gives me a chance to eye ball the newcomer and it gives me a thrill. While I was boiling the Amsterdam, however, I was thinking of a game plan. The Amsterdam is 2.6″ in diameter (that’s 6.6 cm), and 10 1/2″ in length (or 26.67 cm). After using the Amsterdam several times I have to say this: Put aside half an hour. This isn’t a toy that you just run up to, jump in the air and land on. If I were to try this, I would look like the cartoon that runs into a brick wall and shatters into a million pieces. I usually don’t need a ton of warm up, but the Amsterdam required me to bring out my big guns.

I’m proud to say that my vagina survived the Amsterdam. The blunt head with the extreme girth, nearly split me in two the first time around. I warmed up with the Pedro, and it still took two attempts to fit the Amsterdam. I was covered with Maximus lube from my mid thigh, to my lower belly (not on purpose). The first time with Amsterdam was not a cake walk. The “X’s” felt like they were cutting my urethra as they passed, and I had to call it a day. I was surprised that I was able to fist myself after taking out the Amsterdam, though. Honestly, after the Amsterdam, there was very little resistance to my large hand. Being able to fist myself that easily was definitely a first.

The second time I tried, it was relatively close in time (maybe a day or two), and I was able to take the Amsterdam much quicker. This time it didn’t feel like the “X’s” were cutting me, and it was pleasurable. I made it down to the middle of the third X this time, and was able thrust slowly. For me, the Amsterdam’s primary appeal was the full feeling it gave me. I can’t say that it brought me to a thundering orgasm, but it did provide me with a new sensation; my absolute limit.

When looking at the Amsterdam, get out your ruler. Get out something that is close to the same diameter. I had seen pictures, I had gotten out a ruler, but still, seeing the Amsterdam in all of its silicone glory was humbling.

I don’t know when I’ll be using the Amsterdam again. I’ll probably save it for special occasions or for when I feel like testing my limits again. In the mean time, I hold it has a vagina trophy. Even though, I wasn’t able to orgasm with it, I feel like I have jumped the Grand Canyon and lived.

Thank you Tantus, for sending me the Amsterdam in exchange for my fair and honest review!

If you really love the design but this size is too much, give the Amsterdam small a try!

It’s 6″ (15.24cm) in length and 1.5″ (3.81) in diameter.

THE COLORS! I was exhausted from this weekend, and seeing these colors put a huge smile on my face. When I pulled this from the mail, I only had half hour to get to class, but I had to see what the Raptor looked like in person. I snapped some pics so I could take a closer look in between classes. I just boiled it, and I can’t stop looking at it. It’ll be interesting to see how this design works out for me. I’ve never used a toy quite like this. In the meantime, the colors have won me over.

Pedro resized

The Pedro is here! As soon as I saw Pedro, I had to have it. It’s a rare dildo that can be left by a kitchen sink and nobody be the wiser. I’m excited to take Pedro on. This thing is HUGE, but so soft. It’s amazing that this dildo looks so realistic, yet is made of such soft silicone. This may be the one and only time, I will look down and see a terra cotta pot hanging out of my vagina. So, of course I’m excited as hell. This will be a very interesting experience.

Thank you, Primal Hardwere for sending it to me in exchange for my fair and honest review, soon to come!

HippocampusI 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.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here are the measurements for the Hippocampus:

Total length – 10″
Usable length – 9″
Tip
Diameter – 1.9″
Circumference – 6″
Midshaft
Diameter – 2.25″
Circumference – 7″
Shaft
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. 

Hippocampus tipSAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESHippocampus back

Hippocampus baseThe 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.

No. 28When I opened the box from Pipedreams, I had no idea what they sent me. When I saw they sent me the Icicles No. 28, I groaned. I had flash backs of my horrible experiences with the Awesome Blossom. Still, I shook my head, and thought, “This could be different.” It was different, but not by much.

No. 28 tip

Pipedreams is a California-based company that produces toys in a variety of materials such as glass, aluminum, ceramic, plastic, and rubber. They also make other products such as whips, restraints, novelties, and more. They pretty much make a little bit of everything. The Icicles are made from borosilicate glass (in other words Pyrex), this means it’s non-porous and completely sterilizable. You can clean it with bleach, alcohol, soap and water, or boiling. Keep in mind, if you boil the glass, it’s going to be hot as fuck. So be careful. That being said, if you plan on using the No. 28 for temperature play be mindful of how long you keep it in warm water. If you leave it in for too long and if the water is too hot, you can seriously hurt yourself. The same goes for freezing your glass. Cold water should suffice.

Some quick measurements:

Height- 6 7/8″
Insertable surface length- 7″
Base- 2 3/8″ x 2″
Head diameter- 1 1/2″
Shaft diameter- a hair over 1″ (without swirl), 1 5/16″ (with swirl)
aaaand, the listed weight is 10 oz (without packaging)

No. 28 upper halfI’ve used the No. 28 about 6 different times. Each time I’m left disappointed and with an irritated vagina. When I say irritated, I don’t mean that my vagina was telling me, “You know, I’m trying to be nice, but I’d really like it if you were to stop now.” It means my vagina gets irritated like I get irritated, “Put it the fuck down. I don’t know why you keep doing this. You already know what’s going to happen. Just fucking stop.”

As I stated before, seeing the No. 28 brought back the horrible memories of the Awesome Blossom. When I was using it, it was nearly the same thing. Not that it was like using a cheese grater in my vagina, but it was definitely jarring. When using a glass toy with swirled texture, I feel like my urethra and my labia minora are being pulled. Not like the toy is pulling them as one, rather it feels like it’s grabbing little bits of skin and they’re being pinched.

The head has two lines in it that can be seen in the second picture. I have no idea what purpose they serve. They catch on important flesh, and collect debris. The base of the No. 28 is anal safe, but proceed with caution. The texture may be intense. The curve of the No. 28 is very slight. Even when I would put the toy in place, and tred to grind it into my g-spot, it wouldn’t work. It lacks the angle that I need.

This may work for other people. It may just be my vagina saying, “NO”, every time I pull it out. Either way, this toy is pretty to photograph. Not that that is a valid reason to buy a glass toy. “Oh yeah! It doesn’t work, but damn look at the pictures I took and can only show a very select amount of people! Totally worth it!” To be perfectly honest, it drives me nuts when a toy that I don’t like or despise photographs extremely well. The No. 28 is a perfect example of this. When it comes to functionality? If the texture is what you’re looking for, go ahead, give it a shot. If not, you’ve been warned.

Thank you Pipedreams for providing me with the Icicles No. 28 free of charge, in exchange for my honest review.

You can get the Pipedrems No. 28 at Shevibe & Pink Cherry.

Werewolf MedAfter a failed attempt with the Wuffamute Pup, I was somewhat lack luster in trying the Werewolf Medium. I was excited, however, to see how the colors I chose would turn out. I’ve never had a glow-in-the-dark toy before. I love what they did with my color choices (fluorescent blue and glow in dark swirls on the shaft, with a glow in the dark base). In the light it looks great and in the dark, it looks even better. Now as far as the feel goes with the Werewolf, it took me a while to decide if I liked the Werewolf Medium. One day the girth of the Werewolf would be too much, and the next day it would be just enough.

The Werewolf Medium is a big’un. It’s not for the faint of vagina. Especially if you’re intention is to go for the knot. Of course that was/is my intention. I’ve been wanting to successfully use a knotted toy. Like I said, the Wuffamute Pup didn’t work out for me. The Werewolf Medium is a much better fit. The shaft isn’t too long at 6 inches, which means I CAN REACH THE KNOT. *ahem* Sorry, I’m just enthused. What’s the point if you can’t use the whole thing, right? The intention is to use the knot, and with the Werewolf, I am able to. On the days I’m not able to, I’m not able to get over the knot without pain. I will warm up with another toy, reach for the Werewolf and still nothing. I have trouble taking on the extreme width so quickly. These are rare days, but they do happen. When they do, the Werewolf is benched.

With a girth of 6″ circumference on the shaft, and with a circumference of 7.5″ on the first set of nuts, I am full. My favorite part? I’m not dealing with my cervix and the Werewolf butting heads in order to take on the awesome girth of the knot. Alright, enough about the knot. The shaft of the Werewolf is a hefty one. By itself, it doesn’t do much for me. Sure it’s a great width for me, but it’s short. So in order for it to be worth using, it has to be used in full.

Werewolf Med textureOne thing I’d like to see different about the Werewolf Medium is the texture. If you run out of lube, you know it. Immediately. I’m not expecting the lube to last forever, but if I’m low, I don’t want to feel like I’m fucking myself with squishy sand paper. Little to no lube, it’s not going to work. I have to lube myself inside and out, and the toy itself. Not a problem with a towel nearby, but not my ideal situation. I like being able to lube up a toy, throw a little on myself, and rotate the toy in. Seems to work with other toys, just not with the Werewolf. The silicone density of my Werewolf is  Medium for the shaft, and Firm for the base. There is a big difference. I love the Medium density for the shaft. I don’t think I’d be able to manage the toy in Firm. It’s not very forgiving.

On to the second set of balls. The man balls, if you will. They are appreciated. Something to hold on to, and the texture (think a cartoon drawing of wavy hair) makes it easy to hold on to when going for manual thrusting. Especially with lube on my hands. I really like to use it standing up. The toy, not me. I’ve used it with great success in the bath (easiest way for me to ride a toy). There’s no suction cup to the base. It’s completely flat. Still with the large man balls, it’s easy to hold it down with a few fingers while riding.

Successful design (for my body) aside, I am in love with the colors. I really am. This thing looks amazing, lit up. These glowing pictures are after holding the dildo under direct light for 30 seconds. The glow lasts for about a minute, and then it fades. I haven’t had a chance to really test out extended exposure to light, and the lasting time of the glow.

Werewolf light and dark

Overall, I really like the Werewolf Medium. The colors are fantastic,  and I love the swirl on the shaft. The Werewolf even comes with a cloth storage bag that fits the toy perfectly. The girth is right up my alley, and the short length allows me to actually use the knot! I’m all for body-safe silicone dildos with color and density, but this one is a heft toy and may be too much for some. If you’re a girth lover and don’t want a lot of length, I’d definitely recommend the Werewolf Medium. Just be prepared to lube up.

Nox BDI have been wanting to try a Bad Dragon dildo for a long time now. When I was told that Nox was available, I did a little victory dance around my laptop. Of course that means I set the bar high in terms of expectations, but I am ridiculously happy to say that I wasn’t disappointed. The dimensions. The silicone densities. The colors. The suction cup. The texture. All of it. Bad Dragon did not let me down.

Bad Dragon is an fantastic company based in Arizona. They make fantasy dildos, cock sheaths, strokers, and have tons of options for what you can do to the toy. You can add a suction cup and cum tube to most of the dildos and you can choose the silicone density you want. They have an extreme array of color choices when it comes to picking out the coloring you want. As the name suggests, they make dragon toys. Dragon cocks, pussies, assholes, they’ve got it. They have other fantasy toys, too. One thing about Bad Dragon toys, is that they tend to run large. Most of the  dildos come in Small, Medium, Large, and XLarge. When picking out your dildo, take extra care when picking the size for you. All of their toys are made out of high quality, body-safe silicone. Meaning they can be sterilized. Something I love about silicone. The fact that I know my toy is sterile when pull it out of the boiling pot.

Screenshot (7)

The Nox that I have is a Medium. I love girth, and am a size queen. So please consider the sizes when considering the Nox. I ordered the Nox with a Firm Split. This means that the shaft is cast in a Medium density, and the base is cast in the Firm. I am so glad that I chose that firmness. The squishy Medium feels amazing internally, while the Firm base makes it easy to hold on to while in use and makes the suction cup extremely successful.

Nox side

As soon as Nox arrived I opened it up and was thrilled to see that BD had included some fun extras. A soft density sample disk in a beautiful blue-green, two mini dicks, a BD pen, a BD pin, and a little packet of candy corn. It took a great deal of restraint to not eat the candy corn, so I could take the Package of the Day pic. Worth it though. After I took the pic, I couldn’t help but sticking the Nox on smooth surfaces. Windows, the hood of my Tahoe (I thought about driving it down the street, but decided against it because there are young kids around here), my front door. The suction cup is extremely strong. Using it on my shower wall, where the tiles run small (under 4″), I was worried. Nox didn’t let me down. It help up, even when I got reckless with my bouncing. One thing I noticed was that when I stuck the Nox either too high, or too low, it stayed in place without any problems. Usually, if I position a dildo too high or low, it pops off when I go for long thrusts. Not the Nox, it’s solid.

Nox back

When I grabbed the Nox, the first time, I was eager to see how it fit. I closed my eyes and relished in the feeling of being stretched. Then when I got past the widest part of the middle, I enjoyed being stretched over and over again. Alright, “enjoyed” is a weak description of what I was feeling. My vagina would have cried out in joy, but her mouth was full. I wasn’t able to feel the little nubs as much as I thought. Maybe if I got in Firm, I would. I was able to feel the lines running down the shaft. It made thrusting that much smoother. I was cumming within minutes. The large base made it easy for me to hold on to, and the texture on the base helped with my grip (when I have lube on my hands). The shape of this toy was as though it was designed for my body.

I love that Bad Dragon has the option of customizing your toys, and an extensive array of colors. They have a color pallet you can use to design your toy, and a preview so you can see what it will look like. It saddens me that I have to keep Nox under wraps (in a box on my bookcase). That has to be the one thing that sucks about Nox. Boo-fucking-hoo. The silicone feels amazing, it comes in the colors of my own choosing, and it feels like it was made especially for my pussy. *slow clap* Well done, Bad Dragon, well done.

Bow to the NunI was shocked the first time I came across Divine Interventions’ Religious Toys line. The old church-goer in me, was aghast at the array of dildos, butt plugs, and a silicone bible vibrator sleeve. Shoot, even the Holy Water lube caught me off guard. The shock lasted about a minute. Then my sense of humor kicked in. A Baby Jesus Butt Plug? A Jackhammer Jesus dildo? A Diving Nun? I loved it. I started giggling like a deranged lunatic. I wanted the Diving Nun, immediately. I even told Divine Interventions, “I’m not Catholic, but I’ve always had a love for screaming nuns.” And so it came to pass, that I stuck a nun in my vagina.

Diving Nun w/ lubeDivine Interventions is a San Francisco Bay Area toy company, with a fantastic sense of humor. When I got the Diving Nun, I again started with the insane giggling. I opened up my package to the see not only the Diving Nun, but Divine Interventions Holy Water lube, and their Communion napkin. When I took the Nun out to the pool to take the Package of the Day pic, I then realized just how extreme the angle of it is. I had to stack three small river rocks to get the Nun to stand up on its own. The only way to get the Diving Nun to stand up (sans river rocks), is by using its awesome suction cup base. The base is roughly cut, but its slight indent with the soft silicone makes it perfect to suction cup on all surfaces.

Nun Got BackI didn’t really care for the Diving Nun at first. The Nun’s face and texture didn’t do anything but make me uncomfortable. I talked to a friend about it, and she said I should flip the Nun over and give the back ridges a shot at my g-spot. Whole different dildo. The ridges feel amazing on my g-spot, but the shape of the dildo makes it a little difficult to use it for a long period of time. What I did was use the ridged back for a few minutes, and then I turned it back around, Nun up. When I did that, I came to appreciate the the texture of the Nun, and the curve. Within in minutes I was cumming, but it wasn’t easy. The silicone the Diving Nun is made out of , is soft and pliable. This feels great internally, but it makes for difficult maneuvering when holding onto the base. I use it mainly when I’m standing in the shower, so I tend to flatten my hand and use it in more of a “shoving” motion. Yes, I said it. I shove a Nun in my vagina. Definitely a feat I won’t be discussing with my overly zealous religious friends. Though I may snicker if nuns are mentioned.

GE DIGITAL CAMERAThe Diving Nun from Divine Interventions is a modest dildo at 1 3/4″ in diameter, and 7 3/4″ in length. I say modest because I’m a size queen (in regards to girth), and this one requires no warm up for me. It is a longer dildo, but all that means is that I don’t put all of it inside of me. When I’m riding it the length is somewhat comfortable (I tend to sit down when I’m riding dildos). It can be a bit much, and I’m unable to slam my ass down (which can be extremely tiresome) if I’m using the suction cup on a chair. The length does work well if I’m on my knees in the bath with it.

I haven’t had any issues when it comes to cleaning out the Nun’s face or any other crevice on the front of the dildo. I generally use gentle soap and water to clean my toys, and I boil them about once a month. Storing the Diving Nun is a hassle since it won’t stand on its own, and the base puts up a hell of a fight when trying to get it into a gallon sized baggy. So I keep it with other dildos that have storage bags.

Overall I like the Diving Nun. The texture took some getting used to, but I’ve come to love it. I wish the base was firmer, but I suppose it’s best kept soft since it helps with the suction cup. It’s a hard one to show off, as it doesn’t stand on its own, unless you suction it onto a surface. Even then you have to bend it up to be shown. I love that there are two sides of texture, so you can basically turn it into two different dildos. Both of which got me off in a big way. If the Nun isn’t your speed, Divine Interventions has other dildos with the same ribbing on the back. All of which are made from 100% silicone. Enjoy.

DukeThe first time I saw the Duke, was in Jenna’s tweet of the Tantus booth at ANME. I saw the Duke and I was excited. The COLOR. The fact it looked like a handle-less version of the Anaconda. And, the COLOR. When Tantus asked me what I’d like to review, I jumped on the opportunity to try the Duke. I couldn’t wait to get to the house, when I picked up the package from the mailbox. I cracked open the box on the way back from the mailbox, I had to see the color in person. When I got back to the house, I ran outside to take a Package of the Day picture, and loved that I could see the swirls of the iridescent blue in the shaft.

Duke w/ vibeSimply put? I love it. I’m not a fan of it as a vibrating dildo, but then I’m not too thrilled about vibrating cocks. It’s nice that it’s an option for those that are. I tried it with the included Tantus bullet, and with my Salsa. With the Salsa, it was obviously stronger, but I find the vibrations distracting more than anything. With the Tantus bullet, it was even worse. The Tantus bullet is extremely buzzy, and doesn’t get me off by itself, let alone in a silicone cock. Like I said though, it’s a nice option for those that like their dicks to go, “buzz, buzz.”

Duke Standing TallNow back to the Duke itself. The Duke is made by Tantus, one of my favorite sex toy manufacturers. They push for body safe materials in general, but they start by making body safe toys. The Duke is made from 100% premium platinum silicone, and the vibe is made from ABS plastic. The Duke can be sterilized by boiling (3-5 mins), by bleach (10% solution for approximately the same time), by running it in the dishwasher (sans soap). I use dish soap mostly with silicone toys. Unless I use a toy anally, or find out I have a yeast infection or something. Not what you wanted to hear, but it’s the truth and it goes with having a vagina. Now the bullet, you can sterilize somewhat, but not with boiling or a dishwasher. It is waterproof though, and you can wash it with dish soap or wipe it down with rubbing alcohol. I say “somewhat”, because it has a rubber ring around it, where the two pieces meet (and the button). Rubber is not sterilizable.

Duke headThe Duke is the ultimate in-between dildo, for this size queen. It’s not too big, it’s not too small, it’s in the middle. I usually like a lot of girth to my toys, but also love smaller, well positioned toys too. The Duke is right in between. Having had the T-Rex’s mega ridge, and the Raptor XL’s smaller ridge, I didn’t know what would come from the Duke’s. I’ll tell you right now, Tantus found the perfect middle ground of both. The creases under the coronal ridge are amazing. They remind me of the Anaconda, but they’re spaced out more, and almost rounded in comparison. With the Anaconda I have to use a toothbrush to clean it. I haven’t had to with the Duke. The ridge with those creases… mmmlicious. They pull on the ridges of my urethra sponge, and it feels amazing. The ridge puts a fabulous amount of pressure on my g-spot, and again, it hits my urethral sponge. The urethra sponge is in between your urethra, and the inside of your vagina. I love having it stimulated. The girth of the head of the Duke (1 7/8″) feels amazing, and the shaft (slightly over 1 1/2″) has enough drag to keep my vagina at attention.

The size of the Duke is what really makes it an “any time dildo”. There are days where my vagina doesn’t want anything in it. Girthier dildos can’t gain entrance, and longer dildos are held at bay. The Duke, however, makes it past with no problems. The length of the Duke (a hair over 7″ total, 6 1/2″ usable) is perfect for my vagina. I can take the whole thing, and feel no discomfort. The reason I mention it is because I can get a little crazy when I’m thrusting. The Duke, allows me to get crazy with out turning my cervix into a punching bag. Also, I can keep my thrusts short and rest my wrist on my pubic bone. Always a plus on a lazy day.

Every time I’ve used the Duke, I’ve enjoyed it. Standing, lying down, it doesn’t matter what position I’m in, I’m having a good time. It has made me cum numerous times, and I cum in every position I’ve tried it. Something I love about it, because I have dildos that I love using standing up, and then they suck when I lie down. I have an orgasm with the Duke, regardless of position. The matte finish on the shaft gives me little, to no problem with the aid of some water-based lubricant. Even when some of the lube is washed away in the shower, it doesn’t hinder me. The Duke is a dildo I’ll be taking with me on trips. Its gorgeous color, and guaranteed orgasm design (for me), makes it a gem in my collection.
