MaverickI have to admit, it was the colors that caught my attention first. How could they not?  I mean… a dual-density dildo, made out of Vixskin, two inches in diameter, and looks like melted crayons? I. Had. To. Have. It.

When I first opened the standard Vixen Creations cylinder (it’s standard for toys sans balls), I took it to the sink to wash it with soap. As I stroked Maverick, I found myself gaping at it. This thing feels like a real cock. I mean it. This thing is the most realistic toy I’ve ever held. It didn’t feel that way before I lubed it up with soap, though. In fact Vixskin is quite tacky to the touch when dry. Lubed up though? Holy shit.

First of all, Vixskin. The people over at Vixen Creations are mad geniuses for coming up with this extremely plush silicone.  And, of course it’s extremely hard to describe. It’s like a gummi bear that’s been left in the hot car that springs back when you squeeze it. I know this for a fact because I just happened to leave a bag of Haribo Gummi Bears in the car the other day and compared the two. Also, Vixskin eats lube. I mean it. You can use a lot to get things started because of the extreme drag it has, but after awhile you will have to reapply again. I did find that thicker water-based lubes last longer, and are my favorite to use with it. Vaginally or anally, it’s a must.

Maverick headI have jacked off the Maverick to get off. There, I said it. It’s the truth. The inner core with the Vixskin feels that real. Closing my eyes, I feel like I have the real thing in my hand. Alright, enough about how it feels in my hands, onto my vagina. My vagina is a huge fan of the Maverick. The design, with it’s pronounced coronal ridge rubs on my g-spot. The soft squishy head allows me to thrust with wild abandon without making my cervix want to run away in pain. In fact I love using this thing for my x-spot (cervical orgasms). I take it deep and keep my thrusts deep. With the Maverick, I’m able come with in few thrusts. It not a huge orgasm, but more of a long line of small ones making their way up to a huge crescendo. At first I was taking it primarily into the shower. I’d hike a leg up on the wall and go to town with it. Then afterwards, I’d leave it in, and wear it as a vaginal plug, while I dried my body off. It was fun, and a delicious experience. Talk about feeling full.

Lately I’ve been taking the Maverick laying down.  I love being able to take it slow, and tease myself with it’s bulbous head, and shaft. I have used the suction cup base in the shower, and it is extremely strong. The base is made up of extremely rigid silicone, and it makes up the firm inner core of the dildo. The suction cup base works great for a grip. Even with my hands slick with lube, I’m able to maintain a firm hold on it.

Maverick Factoids

Overall height – 7 1/8″
Insertable length – 7 1/2″  (I measure from the middle of the head, down the outside of the shaft)
Head circumference and diameter – 6″ and 1.9″Shaft circumference and diameter  – 6 1/4″and 2″
Base width – 3 1/4″

Maverick undersideI have used the Maverick anally. It was a big deal for me, since it’s the biggest toy I’ve tried. I worked up to it with my Ryder, then my Sexy Spade medium. It’s a huge mother fucker to take into a hole unaccustomed. When I did get it in, I felt pride, more than anything. My advice for anal with Maverick? LUBE!!! Lots and lots and lots of it. I reapplied twice, and had to stop. The tackiness of the Vixskin was too much for me. I have a super sensitive butt hole, and it couldn’t hang. I still get a tickle of pride when I think back on that day. I’ll probably give it another shot here in the near future, but I’m not rushing it.

This review was hard for me to write. No way around it. I’ve sat here for a few days, trying to find the words to describe it. Vixskin is a toughie. Probably the hardest material to describe. At least for me. It’s a beautiful and wondrous thing to have in your vagina, or asshole. The girth of the Maverick won me over immediately. The amazing colors of the silicone are unlike anything I’ve ever seen in a sex toy. My camera doesn’t even pick them up right. The pink is more of a magenta, and the purple is much darker. I, of course, love that it’s made of body safe silicone, and is a breeze to sanitize (boiling pot). The tackiness is the only downside to the Maverick. If you try and wipe it down with a cloth or wipe, it takes forever to get the little fuzzies off, because you have to pick them off. It devours lube, and has a ton of drag to it. I mean if you run out of lube, and you keep going, I guarantee you’ll be raw at some point. Obviously it’s an easy fix, just have lube on hand. The coronal ridge hits my g-spot just right, and the squishy head is like a safety net, in case I get a little crazy with it. It is everything I had hoped it would be. I am in love with my Maverick. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

Maverick's Tube


Unfortunately Vixen Creations has discontinued their tie bright coloring, and their other bright colors.

SheVibe does offer the flesh tone version of the Maverick, though!

RaquelI honestly don’t think that there is a way to mentally prepare yourself for your first feel of Vixskin. I had read other reviews and discussions that said it was “mind-blowing” and “extremely realistic”. Even with that knowledge, I wasn’t prepared for my first squeeze of Vixskin. When I pulled Raquel out of her Vixen Creations tube, I was blown away at how squishy her head was. “How in the hell is this silicone? It’s so fucking squishy!!” Then I felt her shaft. I squealed. I jumped up and down. It freaked me out, to be completely honest. I was excited to try her anally, but because of a time crunch, I tried her vaginally first.

GE DIGITAL CAMERAThe first time I tried Raquel vaginally, I was left bored. There’s no texture and she’s a narrow toy. So as a size queen, I was left wanting. I tried it in different positions, and some of them made me feel like I was stabbing my cervix. Raquel is an extremely floppy, pliant dildo. So when you see her standing, you’re not really seeing her in a shape that holds up in use. The toy molds to your body, rather than maintaining a unique shape. So when I was using it, her head went straight back to my cervix. Even with her squishy head, it was pretty painful. I’ve used Raquel vaginally multiple times, hoping that maybe the results will be different, but they’re not. Every time I use it, my vagina is either yawning from boredom or asking me kindly to stop thrusting.

Raquel FoldedNow for my favorite thing to do with Raquel. Anal. It’s difficult getting Raquel lined up and in, because the she’ll keep bending. I end up having to grip the shaft right under the head. Not very convenient for a reach-around approach. Still when I do manage to push her in, I always experience the most pleasurable “pop” I’ve ever experienced anally with a dildo. Oh, and the thrusting. If my asshole could cry, it would shed tears at the beauty of Raquel’s Vixskin layer. It can be difficult to thrust with Raquel, but I found deep thrusts work best. I’m not the biggest fan of texture anally, so the smooth surface was perfect for me. The smaller size worked well, since it didn’t require a lot of prep time (opening up with a butt plug). I wasn’t able to have one big orgasm, but rather rolling orgasms. One after the other, over and over. Success!

I bought Raquel with the intent of using the suction cup on the wall of my shower. The fact that most of the dildos from Vixen Creations have suction cup bases, is what drew me to them in the first place. Alas, the suction cup base on Raquel doesn’t work well, at all. You end up trying to smash it into the wall, and even then, you have to scramble to catch it after a few seconds. Still, I do like the suction cup base because it makes it easier to hold on to, even with lube on my hands.

Now, about the fragility of Raquel. With Raquel, you have to be careful not bruise her. I have long sharp nails, and one day when I was cleaning her, I made the mistake of grabbing her too hard and my nail left an indent. It has never gone away. On the Vixen Creations Vixskin cylinder, it says to “treat it like your own skin, handle with care”, but I didn’t realize it was that sensitive.

I’m glad that I got Raquel, even if she is only appreciated in my butt. That’s what I got her for. I have other toys that take care of my vagina, and that’s fine with me. As my first experience with Vixskin vaginally, I have to say I was extremely disappointed. It’s not completely the fault of the toy, it’s just my vag requires more girth and rigidity. I do wish that Raquel wasn’t so floppy, but I think  it’s because the inner core is so thin. Maneuvering is a hassle, but once Raquel is in my ass, I’m reminded why Raquel hasn’t gotten the big ugly ax.
