Review: SPUNK Pure Silicone Lube

Its got spunk! Its got style!

Overview

Spunk Lube, It’s a bit of an odd name but it makes sense when you realize the majority of their lineup is meant to replicate ejaculate in both colour and consistency. The pure silicone version I have is a little different though, It’s clear rather than white and it’s not quite as thick as the hybrid silicone lube offered by Spunk Lube but I think that’s just due to the nature of silicone lubes. I was sent the 236ml(8oz) bottle to review but Spunk Lube offer tiny 59ml(2oz) containers all the way up to 3.78L(128oz) jugs! The 236ml bottle stand about 19cm tall and is pure black with the logo written on the side in green, the top has a snap top lid and on the side of the container the logo is displayed prominently with product info and ingredients listed around back.

Speaking of ingredients there are only 4 and my research didn’t find anything to be concerned about which is nice, You don’t have to worry about Glycerin, Parabens or other nasties with this lube. Often times companies will put sweeteners or flavour additives in to make the lube smell or taste better but these can cause bad reactions with certain people as well as generally not being the greatest thing to have slathered on your groin. If you are curious about what goes into lube and what you should look out for that information has already been compiled by people much more qualified than myself, Such as the Lorax of Sex in her post Adventure In Lube-Land.

Also worthy of mentioning is the interaction with Silicone lubes and various other materials, Generally speaking you do not want to use a silicone lube with silicone toys as the two materials react with one another and can cause damage to the toy, Although in theory if a toy is made from high-grade silicone and the lube is made from high-grade silicone there should be no interaction between the two, This hasn’t been entirely my experience but I do plan on doing some in-depth testing of this soon. Silicone lube is however completely compatible on Skin, Glass, Stone, Wood toys, and Latex Condoms

In Use

I don’t really know what I was expecting when I asked to try out a pure silicone lube, I guess I just expected it to be like water based lube but be slightly more resistant to drying out but I’m happy to report I was very wrong in that assumption.

Let me just say that this stuff is slick, Seriously Slick, Slapstick comedy sliding around the room slick and it’s wonderful. The first thing that really struck me as being significantly different with this opposed to water based lubes is that not once in using this have I ever had to reapply lube, It simply doesn’t dry out! 60+ minutes and it’s still as slick as when I first put it on. I decided to test how long it would actually take for the lube to start drying out or its performance started to dwindle, I put some on my skin and checked every 15 minutes and it took almost 4 hours before I noticed any significant change and even then I’m not sure if that was because the lube started to dry or because my skin started to absorb it, When it does start to dry as well it doesn’t go tacky either which is big plus!

While the lube is definitely thicker than most silicone lubes it was still fairly thin and the first couple times I applied it I ended up using way more than was required, Later I would realize that it wasn’t entirely because I poured too much out but that fact that you need so little of this stuff in use! A couple good-sized drops was all I ever needed for skin on skin sessions and for toys a little goes a very long way indeed.

Poor Danbo, Its raining Spunk!

Poor Danbo, Its raining SPUNK!

Spunk says that their pure silicone lube is odor and taste free, And I would agree but I wouldn’t recommend getting any in your mouth as it has a tendency to coat your mouth like a film of oil, which brings me to the topic of cleanup afterwards, All that non drying super slickness has to have some sort of caveat right? Well cleanup is where this lube gets a bit tricky, Silicone lubes are non water soluble which makes them amazing for playing around in wet environments like the shower or hot tub but it makes them incredibly hard to wash off. When it came to washing it off of skin I found a good bar of soap where I could apply force to the area really helped get all the lube off but when it came to toys I couldn’t really find a method that consistently worked in a timely manner, Just keep washing until you don’t feel any more lube.

Final Thoughts – Spunk Pure Silicone Lube

Overall I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by my first pure silicone lube, And by how different it felt and behaved vs water based lubes. Not having to reapply lube at all during a masturbation session was great, It felt somehow fancier than constantly having to reapply lube mid session. Using it with a glass toy was equally as satisfying providing an extremely slick surface to work with and easily became my favourite lube of choice when using the few glass toys I have.

The big negative with Spunk Pure Silicone and all pure silicone lubes is how hard they are to wash off when you’re done, So if you really dislike fighting with lube this might not be right for you, Personally I mostly use the lube just before or while I’m in the shower because then I’m already in the right place to properly clean everything off. But if you’re looking for a non drying, extremely slick lube I can whole heartily recommend Spunk Pure Silicone to be added to your lube collection. If you’re interested in picking some up you can do some directly from their webpage here.

Review: Tantus P-Spot

Tantus review time again! And this time I have my hands on another one of Tantus’s prostate toys, The P-Spot! But this ones a biggin’…Seems like thats a trend for me lately.

Packaging

Packaging is typical Tantus fare with the toy being encased in a plastic clamshell wrapped in tastefully designed cardboard free of nudity and distasteful imagery.

Overview

And in this corner wearing matte black and weighing in at a staggering 305g its the Tantus P-spot! In the other corner cowering in fear, clutching a bottle of lube its my butt! The P-Spot is an intimidating looking piece of kit but once you get over its initial intimidation factor it’s really a well proportioned toy.

The entire toy stands just under 20cm tall and at its widest spans 4.3cm, making this toy no slouch in the size department. It’s a bit of a wonky looking toy overall as well, For lack of a better way of putting it the toy looks more like a utilitarian tool rather than something that immediately jumps out at you as intended to provide pleasure. In usual Tantus fashion the P-spot is made from their 100% Ultra-Premium Silicone and is incredibly high quality, The silicone used in the P-Spot is of the matte variety and feels extremely smooth and velvety to the touch.

Instead of a ‘tip’ the P-Spot has a large bulb on the end that slightly tapers into the rest of the toy but it does so at an angle, The rest of the toy is rather odd-looking, The shaft of the toy goes through several width changes throughout its length, Right underneath the tip of the toy is a flat section with two slightly angled sides, directly below that is an indented section with an upwards angle. The toys got a nice thick chunky base that makes it really stable standing up but it’s not overly large which makes it easy to hold if you need to, And adorning that base is the now all familiar Tantus logo.

Keen observers or people familiar with Tantus’s lineup may have realized that this toy looks a bit familiar to another toy offered by Tantus by the name of the G-Spot, And they would be right because the toys are actually identical in shape with only one major difference, The G-Spot has a receptacle for a bullet vibe on the bottom, A feature that is oddly missing from the P-Spot.

In Use

Initially I thought that I was going to have a really hard time with the P-Spot given its fairly large size and lack of any taper but I was very pleasantly surprised with how easy this toy was to insert and use, I’m not sure if that says more about the design of the toy or my bodies steady increasing ability to take larger toys.

After a sufficient warm up and a surprisingly small amount of lube the toy was very easy to work with, Even though the silicone is matte it becomes extremely slippery when lube is applied and is probably one of the slickest toys I’ve come across when in use. Because of the toys long length I was easily able to have a good portion of the toy slick with lubricant and still have plenty of toy leftover to hold on too.

 

Once inserted and comfortable the P-Spot started to show its true nature as a prostate seeking pleasure magnet, It effortlessly found its way to my prostate and immediately started seating it’s place in my collection as a new favourite for prostate massager. I’m not sure if its due to the large size of the head or the angle of the it’s placed at, Maybe its both but I’ve never had a toy find my prostate as easily as the P-Spot does. I worried when I first held the toy that the silicone wouldn’t be firm enough to offer strong enough prostate stimulation for me but I’m happy to report that my assumptions were wrong – very wrong, If you want light stimulation the P-Spot can deliver, If you want intense pressure and stimulation the P-Spot can deliver that too!

Pushing the P-Spot towards the prostate offers a really amazingly strong stimulation on the prostate, And due to the size of the toy it offers a great sensation of being full at the same time. If strong stimulation isn’t your thing all I needed to do to tone it down was put some pressure on the toy at an angle away from my prostate and it really cut down on the intensity of the stimulation. The orgasms I can achieve while using this toy are simply wonderful, And are the most powerful prostate orgasms I’ve ever had, This is the first toy that I’ve been able to manipulate well enough to really control the pacing and exact type of stimulation at my will. While the P-Spot certainly wasn’t cumbersome it also wasn’t exactly nimble either, A few times I had caught myself wishing the toy was a bit smaller and easier to maneuver.

 

Final Thoughts – Tantus P-Spot

If you haven’t been able to tell so far I love this toy, It now sits at the absolute top of my favourites list for prostate toys. I had less than stellar impressions with the Tantus ProTouch and mostly positive impression of the Tantus Prostate Play but that toy never really clicked with me, Finally I have a prostate toy that not only works for me, but actively makes me want to use the toy as often as possible. The only negative things I can say about the P-Spot is that sometimes it can feel a little unwieldy and that I require a warm up in order to use the toy, I love basically everything else about this toy, It’s a great size, Offers intense or mild stimulation, Its comfortable and it’s made of high quality silicone.

The P-Spot might not be a perfect fit for everyone though, I may love it but the size might simply be too much for many people and the firm silicone doesn’t offer much in the way of give either. If you find that direct prostate stimulation is too much for you and you prefer a lighter touch the P-Spot might not be exactly what you’re looking for either, In my case even though I could reduce the amount of stimulation I got from the toy it was still fairly intense.

Tantus really knocked it out of the park on this one for me, I’m almost infatuated with this toy for lack of a better way of putting it. It’s ticks all the right boxes and it gets my highest recommendation for someone looking for a medium to large sized prostate toy. If you’re interested in picking up the P-Spot you can buy it directly from Tantus at the link below or you can check out your favourite retailer.

Review: Hole Punch Toys Fluke

Whats that? I haven’t put out a review in how long? No no that can’t be right. It is? Well I apologize for my absence but rest assured this new review is no fluke! What? Ohh just read the review!

Packaging

I love the simple packaging of the Fluke! It comes in a a plain cardboard tube wrapped in brown padded paper, Maybe it was because of the colours but the package reminded me of that impatient excited feeling you get after buying a nice piece of meat at the butchers (Or maybe that’s just me). On the one side of the tube is the label for the Fluke which has a very suburbia type feel to it. With no moving parts on any of the toys and the cardboard being very dense and sturdy you can rest assured that it will arrive to you unharmed.

Overview

Yet again I have another beautiful chunk of silicone on my hands, And what a hefty chunk of silicone it is! This cute and stocky looking thing is the Fluke! This one specifically is in the Miami vice colour which is a wonderful light and darker blue fade.

Fluke Side

The fluke is in a bit of an interesting place as far as design goes, I could see it being labeled as both a dildo or a plug, And even on the store page it’s referred to as a “plug-style piece” lending even more to it’s hybrid nature. The toy stands 14.6cm tall and 5.1cm in diameter (5 3/4″ and 2″ in imperial) so it’s no joke when it comes to girth and takes crown for widest toy in my collection so far.

Starting from the top of the toy it’s got a nice tapered tip that rapidly widens into the full width of 5.1cm at the coronal ridge. The shaft of the toy also has a taper to it and starts from around 4cm and narrows to 3cm at the bottom, right below that is the base which comes in at 6.5cm across which is a very reasonable size and shouldn’t pose an issue for those with small hands.

Underside of Fluke

The entire toy is cast from pure silicone meaning it’s easily cleaned and sterilized as well as being body safe, Hole Punch lists the Fluke as being made from soft silicone but in my experience I’m not sure that soft would be the adjective that I’d use – It’s certainly not hard like some Tantus toys but it’s not really soft either, the only thing I can think of when describing the feel of it is ‘bouncy’ but even that seems slightly wrong. The silicone is wonderfully smooth and matte but doesn’t have a lot of drag to it and the finish on mine is nearly flawless.

The Fluke has several aspects that lend themselves to being both artistic as well as semi realistic, The shape of the head is vaguely reminiscent of the head of a penis but has a very exaggerated and angular coronal ridge, where you would expect to find the urethral dent you instead find a raised ridge that continues from where the lines of the angular coronal ridge intersect, also worth noting is the rounded ridge that runs the length of the “underside” of the toy.

Ιn Use

After the first time I tried using the Fluke I came to the very quick realizations that 4.5cm of soft silicone is nowhere near close to 5.1cm of firmer silicone and that my butt is in fact not magic and  this would require a lot of work and effort on my part in order to give it a fair review.

After a heavily extended period of warm up and what felt like half a bottle of lube I managed to get the Fluke inserted without any discomfort, And what a feeling it was! Having the Fluke in was an incredibly intense feeling and unlike anything I’ve experience to date. The entire time it was inside I had an overwhelming sensation of being filled and of being stretched, At first I didn’t know how to react as I thought I might have inserted the toy too quickly and caused myself some pain or discomfort but when I calmed down I realized it was just the intensity of the sensation throwing me off.

Danbo With Fluke

Thank goodness the tip of the Fluke isn’t anymore blunt than it is, while it has a fairly aggressive taper the width of the toy is so large it still felt really abrupt. The angular coronal ridge I talked about earlier definitely came as a bit of a shock when I felt it going in, while the silicone is isn’t hard by any means the edged formed from the angular design felt like just that – an edge, and it sort of felt like it was digging into me as it passed through.

Those of you who both have prostates and like larger toys should get a wealth of enjoyment from the Fluke, Without any angling or help the Fluke already gives plenty of prostate stimulation but with a slight angle towards the prostate? It was like a battle between the unstoppable force and the immovable object and the aftermath involved massive prostate orgasms. Generally speaking I need really firm pressure on my prostate in order to orgasm from it, And with just a slight forward angle and a bit of wiggling the Fluke back and forth and it was in the sweet spot for prostate orgasms.

Fluke Tip

I found the Fluke too big to use adequately as dildo or thruster but as a plug it served very well, Due to the large size and heavy taper across the whole toy the Fluke sits very very securely, Not once in my using the Fluke did I ever feel like it was in danger of slipping or falling out – Heck I don’t think it even rotated slightly. The base while small is completely round it gets in the way of your butt cheeks, instead of resting between them it pushes them apart, this wasn’t a big issue for me though but I imagine it would be mildly annoying if you were trying to wear it beneath clothes.

Final Thoughts – Hole Punch Toys Fluke

My experience with the Fluke has been an interesting one, I love the design and the aesthetic of the toy and it can produce some powerful prostate orgasms and enhance regular ones but the toy requires so much work and warm up from me that it feels like a chore to use rather than a entirely positive experience, Not to say that it’s a bad toy, no not at all it’s just the kind of toy that seldom sees frequent use but you’re still glad you have it in your collection for when you feel like using it again.

If you really enjoy a sense of fullness and being stretched the Fluke should definitely be on your shortlist of toys to buy, And if you can handle the 5.1cm girth and you’re equipped with a prostate it can also deliver some powerful and almost effortless prostate orgasms. While I didn’t  overly enjoy the overly angular edge of the coronal ridge or the round base which had a tendency to get in the way they never detracted from the toy itself and my experience with those features are from a purely anal point of view and may not be an issue if used vaginally or by someone more experienced than I.

Hole Punch Toys offers the Fluke for $54USD which for a toy of this size and quality is a steal. If you are interested in picking up the Fluke or any of the other colourful and interesting offerings from Hole Punch you can do so here.

Review: Tails and Portholes Male Nereid

Dildo off the starboard  bow! Today I’m taking an in depth look at handmade creation that screams of character and charm.

About Tails and Portholes

Tails and Portholes is an Etsy shop that specializes in mermaid and mermaid themed items, In this case it’s a dildo but Brandie the store owner also offers items such as custom sea shells or even mermaid bras! Tails and Portholes is a home run business and between choosing what colours you want and the imperfect nature of homemade products the items offered have a very personal quality to them, While the products are homemade Brandie is constantly improving her methods and uses top notch materials in her creations. If you’re interested in checking out the store you can find it here, Brandie is also very active and involved in the community and can be reached at her twitter account here.

Packaging

I received my package from Tails and Portholes before they had established a system for packing and shipping them, Mine arrived to me wrapped in a plastic bag that was slipped inside a bubble mailer, But if you order one now it comes in an appropriately sized unmarked brown cardboard box. Sadly I don’t have any photos of the newer packaging or my original packaging either but the dildo is pure silicone and should arrive to you in perfect health!

Overview

Look at it! Just look at it! When I was asked what colour I wanted my dildo to be all I said was “surprise me” and little did I know that I would get this glorious piece of silicone in the mail! And seemingly by magic Brandie knew that earth tones are my favourite and I got this lovely pale green an coppery brown mixture that I just adore.

The Male Nereid is a fantasy dildo but not to an extreme extent, It’s more like a semi-realistic dildo with some fantasy elements added in, Typically fantasy theme dildos tend to be on the larger side but I’m happy to report that the Male Nereid is a very reasonable size at 12.7cm of insertable length and 4.5cm diameter.

Looking at the Male Nereid from the “top” you would never really know that it’s a fantasy dildo but once you see the bottom you realize that this isn’t your average silicone penis, Along the back side of the dildo is a ridge of overlapping scales that run the entirety of the instertable length. The shaft of the toy has a nice curve to it and the thickness of the shaft isn’t consistent throughout with it being the thickest about 1/3rd of the way down from the tip of the toy, and speaking of the tip it’s worth mentioning that the Nereid has wonderful semi-realistic head with a clearly defined coronal ridge making this toy a really interesting mixture of fantasy and realism. Also included in the package is a suction cup base (No longer offered on orders) on the dildo but sadly mine doesn’t seem to work too terribly well, It’s enough to keep the dildo in place on a floor or other flat surface but not enough to hang it off a wall.

Beautiful colours aside the Nereid is made from not one but two densities of silicone, this is a handmade custom ordered dual density dildo! The outer section that you can touch and feel is wonderfully squishy and I’ve spent far more time that I would care to admit just staring and squishing this dildo for fun , At the center of the toy is a much firmer core that you can feel throughout about 2/3rds of the toy. The dual density core in mine is situated a little closer to the top smooth side of the dildo making that side feel a little bit harder than the back side with the scales.

There are some issues with the Nereid though, I received a very early copy of the toy before the owner had a vacuum chamber for removing air bubbles in the silicone so my Nereid is spattered with small bubbles and holes across various parts of the toy. Never did I feel like the bubbles or imperfections made the toy fragile or prone to breaking but the cavities can harbor bacteria and other nasties so extra attention while cleaning mine is an absolute must. With the addition of the vacuum chamber and a refinement of her process this shouldn’t be an issue for anything placing an order now but since they are present on my copy I thought it warranted mentioning.

Base Closeup

In use

I’ll be honest, the first time I tried this toy out I hated it but I’m really glad I kept an open mind and kept trying different things because I really do love this toy now.

After getting sufficiently warmed up and using a healthy dose of water based lube (Remember that silicone lube and silicone toys don’t mix) I inserted the dildo, The head felt great and immediately after getting the head in you’re greeted by that ridge of scales. While the scales are going in they feel wonderful and I didn’t expect them to feel as prominent as they are given how soft the silicone is, on the way out is where I encountered a problem, The tip of the scales on their way out felt really grabby and extremely unpleasant, It felt a like they were getting caught and pulling at my butt and was borderline painful.  All was not lost though as I kept at it after a few uses I just realized that there is no way I could thrust this toy with any speed, I could move the toy in at a reasonable speed but I had to go amazingly slow on the way out, We’re talking glacially slow here but that has its benefits as it really allowed me to focus on the texture and feel.

Nereid Profile

At the time of my first using it the Male Nereid was by far the girthiest toy I had used and it took a lot of time and practice for me to be able to use it comfortably, And of course a good helping of lube.  The Male Nereid gave me the biggest sense of fullness I’ve ever experienced with a toy, I never really considered myself a girth-aficionado before but this may have just converted me. Surprisingly given how filling the Male Nereid is I didn’t get a ton of prostate stimulation instead it was a nice constant pressure that made me feel very full along with the warm sensation I get with prostate play.

Nereid With Necklace

A necklace came with mine made from extra silicone during molding.

The base of the Nereid while not being that great as a suction cup is a great to hold while you’re using it, The soft silicone coupled with the small size of the base makes it really easy to get a solid and comfortable grip even with lube everywhere and never did my hand feel like it was cramping or getting tired from holding onto the base.

Final Thoughts – Tails and Portholes Male Nereid

Even though my original impressions were of extreme discomfort and borderline pain things really turned around once I started using the dildo a little differently.

Overall I really like the Male Nereid from Tails and Portholes but it’s not without it faults, Most of my major complaints have been fixed in the newer version of the toy though, The new version has a thicker base and should be air bubble free meaning cleaning won’t be as tedious.  While I do enjoy the full sensation it gives me getting to a point where I can comfortably insert a toy this wide is a lot of work for me and because of that this isn’t a toy I can use as frequently as I would like.

Issues aside the toy really feels great in use, even though I have to go really slow there was never a point at which I felt the toy was lacking in it’s ability to stimulate. Something about the Male Nereid just feels very comforting and welcoming, Maybe its the super soft and delightful silicone or maybe it’s because there is no other dildo like this but I’ve grown strangely attached to it and it now has a place among my favourites.

The real winning factor here though is the price! Tails and Portholes are selling the toy for only $55USD which is an amazing deal for such a beautiful handmade dildo. If you know that you can handle the 4.5cm girth or you’re  just looking for a nice easy stepping stone into the realm of fantasy dildos the Male Nereid is an amazing choice. If you’re interested in picking it up you can find it at their Etsy shop at the link below.

 

A big thank you to Tails and Portholes for sending this out to me in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Review: Tantus Silk Medium

Tantus once again offering us a silky smooth chunk of silicone! Anal safe, harness compatible and  all black! Check out my thoughts below.

Packaging

Tantus packaging, Ohh Tantus, Thy packaging is wonderful. The packaging for the Silk like most of Tantus’s products is clean, simple and effective, The product is encased in a plastic clam shell that’s wrapped in printed cardboard. The Silk has no moving parts or fine details to be broken so rest assured it should arrive to you unharmed.

Tantus Packaging

Overview

The phrase smooth sailing comes to mind when looking at the Silk medium, the entire toy is devoid of any texture at all other than the inset Tantus logo on the base but that’s not a bad thing.  Because of the lack of texture and the smaller stature of the toy it makes the Silk a wonderful option for those looking for their first dildo, for either solo play or with a harness as the Silk lineup are all O-Ring harness compatible.

Cast from Tantus’s wonderful 100% Ultra-Premium Silicone the Silk Medium stands 13.3cm tall and 2.8cm in diameter, my specific Silk Medium is in black but it’s also available in purple and pink, Or if you’re feeling adventurous you could buy one from the Grab Bag program and possibly get a really funky and unique dildo.

Silk side

The Silk lineup are all about the smooth glossy silicone that Tantus has used and the curved shaft, Made from firm silicone the Silk Medium still has a decent amount of flexibility to but don’t expect too much in the way of the toy having much give to it. Interestingly enough I think this is the first time I have seen noticeable imperfections in the silicone on a Tantus toy, they don’t detract in any way from the use of the toy but along the base there are some ridges and wrinkles that I haven’t seen before on a Tantus product. The curve of the Silk combined with the general hardness of the silicone should make for excellent G-spot or prostate stimulation in use.

In Use

“Jack of all trades, master of none, Often times better than a master of one” Somehow the Silk Medium while being for all intents and purposes extremely plain manages to tick off so many positive boxes.

Using the Silk Medium feels like your meeting an old friend, Everything about it just seems comforting and relaxing, Insertion with the help of some water based lubricant is super easy and once it’s inserted nothing feels awkward of out of place, Everything just sorta works. I don’t get heaps of prostate stimulation from this but more than enough to know it’s there and hitting the right place, While the dildo has no texture the surface itself is a lot rougher than on the Charm 2 that I have previously reviewed and makes for some pleasant texture like sensations when thrusting.

Silk Wet

While I don’t have any photos I can assure you that the Silk Medium works great in a harness and can easily be orientated with the curve facing up or down based on your position and preference, One thing that both me and my partner really liked about it was that it wasn’t too long, My butt tends to really dislike anything over about 14cm (5.5″) in length and we were able to use it without fear of discomfort or pain no matter how intense things got.

The base is small enough to get a easy hold of for thrusting during solo play but it will require a hand to keep it pinned down when your riding it. Most of the sensations I get from this toy are centered around my anus with this toy, It’s not large enough to offer a stretching or filling sensation and while the tip does hit my prostate it’s not enough to make a significant difference in my orgasms.

Silk Timelapse

Final Thoughts

Tantus have succeeded in making a dildo that doesn’t fill a particular niche but it really doesn’t need to because it’s a perfect dildo for just having fun! It’s great in a harness, Pretty decent at prostate stimulation, A good thruster and it’s small enough not to intimidate people looking for their first toy. My only real complaint with the Silk Medium is that the Tantus logo needs some extra attention during clean up but that’s not saying much. The Silk lineup would be an amazing starting point for anyone looking to try out harness play, or for their first anal safe dildo. Tantus sells the Silk Medium for $44.92 but you can pick it up through the aforementioned Grab Bag program for a fraction of that really making this toy a no-brainer for anyone looking for a great multipurpose dildo.

A big thank you to Tantus who sent me this product to review in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Review: Pleasure Works Riley

Another day another Pleasure Works dildo, This time I have my hands and butt on the Riley which is a non realistic curved dildo with a slot for a vibrator. Time to get all riled up for the review!

Packaging

The Pleasure Works Riley comes in  an identical box to the Charm 2 , It’s a bright and colourful cardboard box with measurements and easy to read information, The inside has no plastic packaging or other supporting structure but considering that the Riley basically a solid chunk of silicone it’s not an issue unless there is some sort of massive mess up in shipping.

Overview

The Pleasure Works Riley is a pretty standard looking affair for a dildo, The only really prominent features on the dildo are the fairly severe curve across the entire length and the smooth and bulbous head at the tip. Riley is not what I would consider a realistic dildo, There is no texture at all across the shaft and while the tip of the dildo is shaped like the glans of a penis it lacks finer details like a pronounced coronal ridge or a urethral opening.

My Riley is in this wonderful medium purple colour but it’s also available in a bright teal colour as well if the purple just doesn’t do it for you.  I actually had a bit of a hard time trying to get pictures of the Riley, Like the Charm 2 that I reviewed something about the colour of this silicone seemed to change constantly depending on the light.

Cast in firm pure silicone the Riley measures in at 16.5cm x 3.5cm across the majority of the length with it increasing to around 4cm diameter at the widest part of the head, The base is small and perfectly round and even people with small hands shouldn’t have an issue getting a grip on the toy in use, The base also makes it O-ring harness compatible. Along the very bottom of the base is the receptacle for a bullet style vibrator.

Pleasure Works are kind enough to include a waterproof single speed bullet vibe, It’s a little larger than the Tantus single speed vibe and while the vibrations are a little buzzy they are definitely stronger. I’m pretty sure that I just have horrible luck with these sorts of things because the first bullet vibe I received when I bought my Tantus ProTouch was defective and wouldn’t work at all and this one has a power button that is stuck on the entire time, In order to turn the vibe on or off I have to screw the entire cap on or off the back of the vibe which isn’t a huge deal but it’s annoying no less. The vibe is powered by 3 LR44 cell batteries which are easy to find should you need to replace them.

With the receptacle for the vibe in the bottom you would think that inserting and removing the vibe would be easy right? How very wrong that is, Because of the smooth silicone and lack of any sort of texture when you insert the bullet vibe into place it forms a seal so strong it defies reality, Every single Riley should come with a warning label that reads:

WARNING: Insertion of the included bullet vibe without prior application of lube will result in a vacuum seal. The seal created will be so strong no mortal being will be able to remove it, If this occurs you must first ask the dildo god for forgiveness and judiciously apply sacred lube,  Once the sacred lube is applied you must show the gods that you are worthy in a feat of extreme strength and if the gods deem you worthy they will allow for the removal of the vibrator.

This took me over 25 minutes to remove.

In Use

Even though the Riley looks fairly plain and unassuming my experience with it has been the polar opposite of plain, Definitely a case of looks being deceiving.

The heavy curve along with the bulbous head make the Riley probably the nicest dildo I’ve had the pleasure of using for thrusting, Mostly because regardless of what direction it was in or how fast or slow it was used it targeted my prostate like some sort of heat seeking missile. Every single thrust with the Riley seemingly have something to offer in terms of pleasure, My prostate requires quite firm pressure but the Riley was up to the task the whole time, If the curve was facing towards my front it would hit my prostate quite firmly but only for a second as it went past, If I flipped it the other way with the curve facing away it stayed nestled against my prostate with constant pressure which felt amazing.

At only 4cm at it’s widest this isn’t exactly a dildo for the girth-aficionados out there but due to the slimmer nature of the toy was an extremely easy affair to use, a healthy dose of your favourite water based lubricant and away you go! Most time I didn’t even need a warm up from another toy first as the tapered head of the Riley was more than adequate for easing into things, I did notice that like the Charm 2 the Riley tends to be a little lube hungry due to the type of silicone used, It’s smooth and shiny but also has a decent amount of drag to it.

Vibration wise the Riley was a little bit unimpressive for me, While the bullet vibe was stronger the other bullet vibes I have tried the vibrations were localized to the base and didn’t transfer it to head while in use – I couldn’t feel them at all. With the dildo inserted most of the way though you could definitely feel the vibe buzzing away and it did feel really nice, Made my whole anus tingle and feel warm but after a while it started to feel numbing rather than pleasurable.

Conclusions

After just a couple of uses the Riley quickly climbed near the top of my favourites list, Everything about it just seems to work with my anatomy and the feeling of it against my prostate was simply amazing. Riley isn’t without it’s issues though, the included vibe is fairly weak and nearly possible to remove without lube and I feel like if the vibe slot were to be removed and replaced with a suction cup I would enjoy it even more but that’s picking at straws because when it comes down to it the Riley is a great piece of silicone. It’s slender and smooth with just enough curve and a prominent enough head to offer a ton of pleasure. This has consistently become the go to toy for both me and my partner and it’s an easy recommendation to anyone looking for a dildo without much texture or girth. If you want to pick up the Riley you can do so from the Good Vibrations store for only $54.00!

Perineum’s Praeterita Part II: Heavy Waters

Welcome to part II of my personal story, This time I’m writing about a few father & son outing that went wrong. Be warned, it’s a long one.

Thanks for checking out the second post in this series, I know it’s unusual to see such a personal post on a sex toy blog but for as much as this blog is about reviewing sex toys it’s also about being an outlet, This blog originated as a creative outlet for me to be able to explore my sexuality and for me to develop as a person and this series is an extension of that although to a more extreme degree. What will be contained in this and future posts in this series are my personal recollections of previous events in my life, In an unfiltered and uncensored fashion, Some of these posts may be extremely sad and hard to read for some people while other posts could be about generally happy events in my life. Before the main body in each post will be a bolded and bracketed line of text containing possible triggers that may upset or otherwise make people uncomfortable so please read at your own discretion.

(Triggers: Alcoholism, Death, Drowning, Severe Injury)

Precursor

For almost the entirety of my pre adult life I lived with my mother, step father and my siblings, While I may not have lived with my biological father we visited very often and he was a big part of our lives. I always had much more in common with my biological father than my step father, Not that my step father is a bad or uninteresting person but both me and my father always had similar interests. When I visited my father we often went camping or worked on computer together, He taught me a lot of skills that I still use on a daily basis like the importance of critical thinking, process of elimination, how to cook and much more, He was instrumental in shaping the kind of person I’ve become.

I grew up quite sheltered from a lot of things, We didn’t have a lot of money growing up so we didn’t get out much, Because of this there were a lot of things that I simply didn’t know about or didn’t realize the real world implications of, Like alcohol. We didn’t have cable at all growing up, We had a TV and a few video games and old VHS tapes but that was it, And neither my step father or my mother drank at all so I really was never exposed to anything to do with alcohol and the thought of a beverage that you could drink that could change the way you behaved or thought had never crossed my mind. My only real experience with alcohol was when I visited my father but it was never really discussed other than “Oh that’s beer” what it actually was or what it did was never explained at any point. My parents divorced when I was less than a year old, The reasons why were never really discussed but I would find out later that a large portion of it was my fathers drinking which would have been handy information given how the events later on would unfold.

One summer shortly before the beginning of my first post in the series I went to visit my father who was then living about a 5 hour drive away, He drove all the way to come pick me up and we had a great time on the drive back. The entire way there we played games and he filled me in on new things in computers, we talked about cars and engines and he filled me in on our fishing trip he had planned on the end of the week. Rest of the week was amazing and was filled with good times and great food, playing video games and getting to use his pellet gun in the back yard. The real issues started on the second to last day when we were going to get up really early and head to the local lake to go fishing, What should have been a wonderful day out with my father turned into a traumatic experience.

We both woke up fairly early, fumbled around in the early morning dark to get dressed and pack our lunches and food for the day. After a considerable amount of time we packed up the truck and headed out towards the lake, It was about an hour-long drive each direction but it didn’t seem to take nearly that long to get to the lake. We loaded all of our gear into the boat and set off for one of my fathers fishing spots and most of the morning was relaxing and enjoyable, A lot of silence and enjoying the scenery, We even got to watch an old steam train pass by the edge of the lake.(Yes, I was one of those train crazy kids, Because trains are awesome) Only at around lunch time did things start to take a turn for the worst, While I was eating my lunch so was my father but what I didn’t realize at the time was that he had packed a 30 case of beer into the cooler we had brought with us and he started drinking while we were fishing. You have to remember that at this point in my life I had no experience with alcohol, I knew that he was drinking beer but I had no idea of how that would affect him, It wasn’t an issue other than him getting louder and our rate of catching fish plummeted – Not until we decided to head back that was.

We had originally planned on heading back in around dinner time and grabbing some food at a restaurant along the way, But the weather had turned stormy really fast so we decided to head back in early to  mid afternoon, By this time my father had finished almost all of the 30 beers in the cooler. While headed back to shore I distinctly remember  my father asking “Want to have some fun?” and me screaming “No” because I was never comfortable on rough waters, and I had never learned how to swim, My father being drunk took my no as a yes and proceeded to rip the throttle wide open and carve through the increasingly water. Nearly paralyzed from fear all I could do was grip the sides of the metal boat as hard as I could while my father laughed at me for being scared of his driving and the rough waters, It wasn’t long until he hit a wave extra hard at an odd angle which pitched me straight out of the boat and into the water. Anyone who lives in BC or anywhere with mild summer temperatures and glacier fed lakes can attest that even in summer the lakes are freezing cold barring an extremely warm summer, Soon as I hit the water I could feel my muscles tense from the cold, I flailed around for a while trying to keep my head above water and fighting with the life-preserver until my father brought the boat back around close enough for me to cling to. After managing to pull myself back into the boat with no help from my father who was too busy laughing at the situation we got the boat to shore.

I spent the next 20-30 minutes trying to dry myself off with greasy shop rags that were in the boat house while my father gathered up all the stuff from the boat and secured the boat to the dock. After what seemed like ages we got into the truck and at this point you would think that he would use his phone to call someone to pick us up because he was clearly drunk, But he didn’t. The road that led to and from the lake was a narrow one and was made mostly of hard packed dirt for several kilometers before finally giving way to asphalt, It was the longest drive of my life. We were driving a large late 70’s Ford Bronco at the time which took up most of the small dirt road and a wide truck with a rock face on one side and a 20 meter drop on the other with a drunk person behind the wheel is a terrifying experience, I was so cold I don’t remember much other than after a while I just stopped looking out the windows and stared at the floor because it was easier, One thing I do remember though is the song that my father had on at the time because he had it on repeat the whole way and sung along to it while I was huddled in the passenger seat getting mild hypothermia and fearing for my life. Things got a little better once the paved road started and I think some of his drunkenness had worn off. Finally after what seemed like eternity we got back to the house and I didn’t have the energy to do anything other than go inside and strip off my wet clothes and put dry ones on. I didn’t come out of the room till the next day when my parents had arrived to pick me up, I said nothing to my father loaded my stuff into the car and then fell asleep on the ride home because I hadn’t slept that night.

The Incident

A few years later, Around 7 months after the events in Part I I was invited back to go visit my father, And for whatever messed up reason I convinced myself that it was a good idea. Upon arriving at my father’s house the he sat me down and apologized profusely for what had happened last time, and that he wouldn’t have anything to drink the entire time I was there and for the entire time that I was there everything went a lot better. About a week and half into my two-week stay my father had recommended that we go out fishing again, Given the good week and the apology I reluctantly agreed to go fishing the next day, But at the time there was no way I could have known that I would be one of the most traumatic days of my life.

The fishing trip started off  the same as last time with an early morning shuffle to get dressed and get everything packed for the day and then off to the lake. And for the first few hours everything was fine, We had caught a few good-sized trout but the area of the lake we were in was starting to get a bit crowded so we decided to head for a different area, We fired up the outboard motor and headed nearly to the other side of the lake when the engine made a gurgling noise and cut out. My father said that the engine had been giving him some issues lately but he thought he had fixed it as it hadn’t acted up in a while, He pulled the cowling off the engine and started tinkering with it hoping to get it running again and after a while he was ready to give it another go. The engine was an older model and didn’t have an electric start, It required a pull on a cord to start it much like a lawnmower or chainsaw, But when my father pulled the cord the combination of the force required to pull the cord and poor footing caused my father to fall out of the boat and into the water. At the same time that my father fell into the water the engine of the boat had started back up again, I immediately scrambled over to try to help him back into the boat but when I reached for something to steady myself on I mistakenly grabbed the side of the boat and the throttle control stalk on the motor, When I reached down to try to grab his arm I twisted the throttle and send the boat surging forward which ended up tossing me out of the boat as well.

This summer was a lot cooler than the last time I was thrown from the boat, The water felt like it was stabbing me and I could barely breathe, As bad as it sounds soon as I hit the water the thought of my father drowning as well didn’t even cross my mind, the only thing I could think of was getting back into the boat. Somehow I managed to keep my head above water long enough to see where the boat had gone and I managed to flail and make my way to the boat, It took every ounce of strength I had left to haul myself into the boat and the only thing I remember after that was searing hot pain across my back before I blacked out.

I woke up 4 days later in the hospital with my back in excruciating pain, It turns out that when I fell out of the boat my back slid along the back of the boat where the propeller was, It carved three large gashes into my back that required 71 stitches and several staples to close. It was several minutes before someone came into the room and realized I was awake, She told me about the injuries and that a fellow fisherman had seen me in the boat and I was medevaced to the hospital, But after that she asked me a question that I hadn’t even thought of since I woke up “Was there anyone else on the boat with you?” I immediately broke down into tears – My father had drowned.

Reflections

The physical recovery from that took a long time and was extremely unpleasant, I have three extremely large and sensitive scars across my back and they will never go away but that’s nothing compared to the emotional effect that I’ve struggled with since then. Small boats terrify me, I can’t set foot anywhere near them, The only boats I can handle are the ones large enough to feel like a solid surface. Lakes and ponds are a source of unease and bad memories and can send me into emotional breakdowns. Last year when me and a few friends were out a pub for drinks someone put on the song that was playing while my father drove home drunk and I completely broke down and had to be taken home. Not to mention the gut wrenching feeling I get whenever someone asks me about my father,  Nothing about dealing with this has been easy and it’s a constant source of triggers for my PTSD but I’m in a place now where I can write about it an share it. Writing this post has been extremely difficult but also extremely therapeutic and I want to thank anyone who’s taken the time to read through the entire thing.

Review: Tantus Prostate Play

Tantus time again! It’s almost like I have some sort of addiction but I can stop whenever I like…I promise. Addictions aside It’s time to take a look at the Tantus Prostate Play! Which is a funky looking little chunk of silicone with a bullet vibe that’s meant to perch against your prostate and vibrate away.

Packaging

The Prostate Play comes in a remarkably large plastic clam shell style plastic package, while large enough to easily display all the relevant information I just can’t get over how large the package is for the relatively small nature of the toy because It really does seem like a waste of materials. Size aside the packaging should keep your toy safe till it’s arrival even if your postal service workers are the most brutal of savages (Looking at you Canada Post).

In box

Overview

First off I just wanna say one thing, whatever Tantus did with the silicone on this toy I want it applied to everything, my house, pets, people, everything! If waiting rooms had this stuff on the walls people would never be bored and everyone would rub the walls like some sort of disturbed Willa Wonka scene. I love everything about the silicone used on this toy, It’s still Tantus’s wonderful 100% Ultra-Premium Silicone but it’s got a satin finish that is so gloriously smooth and velvety that you just can’t help but touch it constantly.

The Prostate Play stands 12.5cm tall (14cm with the bullet vibe inserted) measures 2.8cm in diameter at it’s widest point and looks sort of alien in design. Curvy and extremely angular are a seldom mixed together but that’s exactly what went into the design of the Prostate Play, the main body of the toy is made up of two smooth and rounded lobes connected together and offset at a rather awkward looking angle, towards the base the curves and angles straighten out into a round shaft, Also prominently visible are the 4 raised rings towards the base of the toy which are on a slight upwards facing angle (More on that later).  Tantus once again realizing that people have butt cheeks and have designed a thin and rounded base to rest between your cheeks rather than dig into them, and on the front side of the base is a rounded perineum massager.

Tantus have included their 3 speed vibrating bullet with the Prostate Play, It’s around 8cm long so it’s a good 1/3rd bigger than Tantus’s regular single speed bullet vibe.  At the very bottom of the toy is the receptacle for the bullet vibe which with Tantus’s usual attention to detail has ridges all long the inside to insure the vibe doesn’t make a perfect seal an assures easy insertion and removal without the use of lube, Very nicely done Tantus.

In Use

Once at it’s final resting place it was almost like all the stars aligned, this is a prostate toy that doesn’t get in the way or poke where it shouldn’t everything just fell into place exactly like it should. With it fully inserted the top bulb rested gently against my prostate and provided light constant pressure, If I flexed my kegel’s I could draw the toy in further and make it push much harder on my prostate, same way you would use a manual prostate massager. But I just couldn’t get over how comfortable it was to wear, It was well mannered and polite for the entire time it was inserted due to the simply amazing base Tantus designed.

Vibrations from the included vibrator transfer reasonably well into the body and tip of the Prostate Play but sadly the vibrations overall are fairly weak and uninteresting  which translated into them not doing a whole lot for my prostate, Because of the removable nature of the vibe when it’s inserted into the toy it focuses most of the vibrations into the main shaft rather than the tip of the toy where you really want them. The vibrations definitely heightened my enjoyment of the toy and the higher speed on the vibe combined with flexing was the best use of the toy that I could find but no matter how much flexing or vibrations the vibe put out it never came anywhere close to giving me a prostate orgasm. The perineum massager  fell  short for me, While it didn’t really add anything to the experience it wasn’t uncomfortable or in the way at all, it’s a feature that I wouldn’t miss if it were gone but it may be of benefit to some – It also makes a decent handle for removal.

The Prostate Play is a relatively small toy but due to the shape of it I thought my first time inserting it was going to be like figuring out a wood puzzle but much to my surprise the tapered tip and fairly flexible neck made it very easy to insert (With a generous helping of water based lube of course). During the first insertion I was originally hesitant about the 4 ribs near the base as I’ve had experiences with other toys that had similar ribs and found them to be really uncomfortable but I was happy to be proven wrong in this time round, I think the fact they’re angled is what makes them so much more comfortable than my previous encounters, They also serve to help keep the toy inserted and not slide back out.

Conclusions

The Prostate Play really is a mixed bag for me because there are aspects I love like the wonderfully designed base and the quality and feel of the silicone but others I’m not so fond of like the weak vibrations and the mostly useless perineum massager but despite everything I really do like the Prostate Play! While it couldn’t bring me to a prostate orgasm it all by itself it turned a normal orgasms into powerful ones and the feeling of it vibrating and rubbing against my prostate during penetrative sex was wonderful.  Despite the positive experiences I  can’t help but think that the Prostate Play would really come alive with some stronger vibrations but as it stands it’s a great piece of silicone that most people would be happy to have in their collection. If you’re interested in picking up the Prostate Play you can purchase it directly from Tantus at the link below or check out your favourite retailers listings!

Thank you to Tantus who sent me this product to review in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
