The Casanova is made of one solid piece of silicone. Silicone is a great body safe material for sex toys. It is nonporous, so you don't have to worry about this toy holding on to bacteria or germs. Silicone warms to your body temperature and retains that heat well, giving your toys a more realistic and comfortable feel. The silicone used to make the Casanova is hypoallergenic, latex free and phthalates free. There is no odor to the Casanova, and it doesn't retain odors after use.
The surface of the Casanova is smooth, but it has a matte look to it. You can bend the flex the Casanova easily, even fold it in half, but it has enough rigidity to make insertion easy once you get it started. It does have a bit of squish to it. The color is lovely and rich, with a bit of sparkle to it.
Both beginners and advanced users will enjoy the Casanova. Consisting of a base shaped like a rounded off rectangle, and a stacked series of bulges, the Casanova is the perfect union of anal beads and a beginner plug. The total length of the toy is 3 1/2". The 4 beads are roughly the same width, each measuring close to 7/8", but they gradually increase in length the closer you get to the base of the toy. The smallest bead at the tip measures just over 1/2" in length, and the largest bead measures right around 1" in length. The neck between each bead is small enough to be comfortable, but still provides stimulation. The size of the toy is perfect for a beginner. The base measures 2 3/4" by 1", and is fairly basic. It is large enough to provide safety, but small enough to be comfortable. If you choose to travel with this toy, I'd suggest putting it in your checked bags.
An impressive anal toy, the Casanova does a few jobs and excels at them all. After applying lubricant, the blunt tip is easy to insert. Once that first bead is in, you can choose to insert the Casanova all the way and leave it there, or slowly thrust the toy to get the full effect of those beaded sections. No matter which way you choose, this toy is comfortable and easy to use.
The base is small and comfortable, and sits nicely between your cheeks. You can comfortably sit on the base, and it is comfortable for long term wear. The surface of the base is flat and smooth, with no suction cup. Depending on the size of the O-ring used, I suppose you could use the Casanova in a harness, but its length makes it a less than ideal candidate for harness use.
The small neck between the last bead and the base allows this toy to lock in place and stay put during intercourse or oral sex. The base doesn't block the vaginal opening, so you can still enjoy vaginal sex while this plug is in place.
Caring for silicone is very easy. The Casanova has no grooves or problem areas that make cleaning difficult. Soap and water can be used to wash it off before and after use. You can also use your favorite toy cleaner.
Should you wish to sterilize the Casanova, you have a few options. Placing it in boiling water for three minutes will do the trick; you may also place it in a safe spot on the top rack of the dishwasher and run it through a cycle. Either one will ensure that the Casanova is germ free and ready for use.
As the Casanova is silicone, only water-based lubes should be used with it. It's important to avoid contact with silicone lubes, as silicone lubes may react with the toy and cause damage. It's also important to avoid storing silicone toys where they are touching each other, for the same reason.
The Casanova comes in a small plastic bag within a cardboard box. The cardboard box has a color photo of the toy and gives you basic information about the toy. There is no pamphlet included, but more than enough information is included on the box. Although I wouldn't call the package elegant or classy, I wouldn't call it trashy, either. You could use the box for storage, but if you decide not to you can recycle the cardboard box.
I really thought that I had seen and tried so many beginner anal toys that nothing would surprise me. I have tried more than enough plugs that are slim and comfortable to insert, but don't stay in during sex. The Casanova really impressed me. The sensation of the beads was heavenly! After playing around for a while, I inserted the plug all the way and was able to have vaginal sex while the plug remained in. It didn't pop out! This toy has become a favorite, and it will be the toy I recommend to anyone looking to try anal play.
